While this may mean they avoid an uncertain period for the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, the prospects for other assets such as cash, bonds and buy-to-let property may be somewhat challenging over the long run.Therefore, investing £5k, or any other amount, in British shares in an ISA could be a relatively sound move. It may improve your financial outlook to a greater extent versus investing money in other assets.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…An uncertain near-term outlook for UK sharesThe performance of UK shares could be disrupted by a second stock market crash over the coming months. Risks such as the US election, Brexit and coronavirus could cause investor sentiment to weaken dramatically over a short period of time.However, there is no guarantee that a decline in share prices will occur in the short run. Certainly, the current recovery for the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 will not remain in perpetuity. However, the past performance of British shares shows that they can be difficult to forecast in advance. Therefore, investors selling stocks may end up avoiding a market decline that does not materialise.Worse still, selling UK shares leaves many investors with a lack of attractive options. The recent stock market crash has caused policymakers to reduce interest rates. Therefore, the returns available on cash and bonds are at extremely low levels. Meanwhile, rising house prices mean that there could be a lack of value available for buy-to-let investors. This may lead to disappointing returns over the coming years.Investing money in an ISAAs such, UK shares may offer a relatively attractive investment opportunity at the present time. The threat of a second stock market crash means that there are numerous high-quality companies currently trading at low prices as a result of weak investor sentiment towards their sector, or the wider index. Over time, they could deliver impressive returns that improve your financial situation.Moreover, the past performance of the stock market shows that it can deliver relatively high returns over the long run. For example, the FTSE 100 has recorded an 8% annual total return since inception. Over that time, it has experienced numerous bear markets and downturns. This suggests that even if there is a fall in British share prices over the coming months due to the aforementioned risks, long-term investors can experience strong growth due to their extended time horizon.Therefore, now could be the right time to continue to invest in a range of UK shares. They could outperform other mainstream assets in the long run, albeit with the prospect of high volatility due to the threat of a second market crash. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens | Sunday, 11th October, 2020 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Jonathan Davies – a Wales star in the making

first_imgDavies does himself a disservice with that last comment because a lot of those tries required pace and footwork to beat the defence. He may look like the archetypal crash-ball centre, but he is surprisingly fast, has soft hands, is a decent kicker out of hand and can jink around players too. It’s interesting that he names Scott Gibbs as his childhood hero for he was also seen as a bish-bash-bosh merchant, yet his most famous try saw him skip around the English defence to help Wales to victory at Wembley in 1999 and end England’s Grand Slam hopes.“Scott Gibbs was perhaps similar to the way I play. Some of the stuff he did was so dynamic and really exciting to watch; it’s something I’d like to do myself. He was a lot more skilful than some people thought and hopefully I can show that myself too.”Davies remembers the 1999 World Cup warmly, the whole of Wales abuzz with excitement as tournament hosts. He watched the games on TV, but was still caught up in the fervour of it all. The last tournament is not such a fond memory as a Wales squad featuring several of his Scarlets team-mates crashed out in the pool stages.Clearly he is hoping that there is no repeat of that disappointment in New Zealand this autumn as he targets a place in Warren Gatland’s World Cup 30. Centre is a competitive position for Wales, but Davies says: “I’ve come on a lot this season and I’ve been pretty pleased on the whole. Now I’m hoping to get on that plane.”This article appeared in the July 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Wales centre Jonathan DaviesThe Wales centre hopes his fruitful season will ensure him a World Cup place. Sarah Mockford reportsThe heritage of one Scarlet has proved quite the topic of conversation in the past couple of months, the form of England-born No 8 Ben Morgan catching the eyes of national selectors on both sides of the Severn Bridge. He qualifies to play for Wales in January so the big question is whether England will cap him first. However, Martin Johnson might wish he’d known that another Scarlet was born in England, particularly as this one could have helped solve his side’s chronic midfield problems. As it is, Jonathan Davies is well and truly committed to the Wales cause despite being born in Solihull.“Not many people know that,” says Davies of his birthplace. “I don’t have the accent – I don’t think it would go down well in West Wales! My parents had moved out of Wales but then came back when I was six months old. It’s never been an issue for me. I see myself as Welsh.”His family settled in Bancyfelin in Carmarthenshire and he was introduced to rugby at primary school. While he started out as a fly-half he was later moved to centre, his coach deeming him “too big” to be a ten – and it’s a switch that has paid off for Davies. “I don’t think I’d have got as far as I have playing outside-half,” he admits. “I did like it but I find centre a lot more enjoyable and there’s less pressure.”Davies has been able to master the midfield craft by playing next to Regan King in recent seasons at the Scarlets, but with the ex-All Black centre leaving for France he knows he now has to take on more of a leadership role at the region. Davies may be only 23 but in a squad brimming with youth that is almost middle-aged. He made his Scarlets debut as an 18-year-old and wants to lead by example.“With the youngsters we’ve got I see myself as that bit more senior and I demand high standards in training,” he says. “For example, they shouldn’t think, ‘It’s okay if we drop a ball. We can go back and run it again’. We should nail it every time and be confident in doing that. Then in a game, we’ll execute it every time. I’m playing with a lot of confidence now and I’m taking on more responsibility in my own game with the region. I want to keep improving.”Davies also feels more comfortable in the Wales set-up. He was first capped in North America in the summer of 2009 and featured in all four of that year’s November Tests, but it was this spring that he started to feel at home. He was in camp for the Six Nations and started four of their five games, injury ruling him out of the Italy fixture. “I’m a bit quiet in team meetings but one-on-one I’m more confident talking to people. Being involved in the Six Nations helped my confidence and I now feel more a part of the squad.”Ask whether he brings something different to the Wales team, though, and Davies is not so comfortable in responding. “I like to think so but I don’t know what it is. I enjoy playing an exciting brand of rugby and hopefully I’ll get opportunities this summer to show what I’m all about. I’m looking forward to it.”He has certainly shown his appetite for scoring tries this season. He scored six in three games last September and was the only non-winger in the top five Magners League try-scorers in 2010-11, finishing the campaign with nine touchdowns to sit level in third with DTH van der Merwe. Davies jokes: “All the boys say I’m hogging the ball a lot more. I think it’s just a case of right place, right time.”center_img Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad? If so click here.

All Episcopalians invited to join ‘Lament Over the Doctrine of…

first_img Posted Jun 26, 2012 Submit a Press Release June 28, 2012 at 12:30 pm It’s important to recreate ourselves, that is, our values and concience, going forward. Lamenting the past misses the point. People have moved around the globe since the beginning of time, and dominated, killed, or changed or been changed by those with whom they came into contact. Don’t have an anthropology background? Just read the bible! Today, we are not our bretheren of the past. Yes, we must acknowledge the errors of past generations, but let us carry respect for one another, not grudges over typical human behavior, into the future. Let this lament for the harshness of the behaviour of the past be accompanied by a celebration of the potential of the society we are today. June 29, 2012 at 7:04 pm This stuff is its own parody.

June 27, 2012 at 10:26 pm So, does that mean that we should all give everything back to the Natives (in my case, the Shawnee) and go back to England/Scotland/Germany/Norway where we came from? Otherwise the “Lament” is nothing more than a shallow, hollow, feel good, self-congratulating, “I am not like other beings” farce. (Oh, and there are some really interesting stories about the Shawnee and their “Doctrine of Discovery” against other groups, such as the Miami.)

The Lament will include the Red Leaf Singers, traditional Lakota singing and drum group from the Rosebud Sioux Reservation, South Dakota. White Earth Tribal Chair Erma Vizenor will reflect upon the boarding school impact to Native American peoples with other church leaders sharing their perspectives on the Doctrine of Discovery.“In an unprecedented step of significance for Christian response to the European invasion and settlement of the Americas, the Episcopal Church is the first Christian denomination to publically repudiate  the Doctrine of Discovery through the actions of D033 taken at GC 2009,” explained Eagle Heart. “The church demonstrated the courage of our convened leadership by offering the repudiation in 2009, and now in 2012 calls upon and invites all Episcopalians to join in a substantive response to the Doctrine of Discovery through participation in this lament to acknowledge, honor and respond compassionately to our grievous past of invasion and settlement.”Resources including Jefferts Schori’s recent pastoral letter on the Doctrine of Discovery, prayers, program and information for the concurrent local observances are available here.Resolutions for the Decades of Remembrance, the New Jamestown Covenant are available here, and the Charter for Lifelong Learning is available here.For both those present for the Lament in Indianapolis, as well as those elsewhere, stay in touch and contribute responses to and reflections on the lament through:Twitter  #episcopalDoD @indigepiscopal @iamepiscopalianFacebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Native-AmericanIndigenous-Ministries-of-the-Episcopal-Church/121658134519767For more information contact Eagle Heart here.This is a joint effort between the Office of Indigenous Ministry, the Office for Lifelong Christian Formation and the Office of Social and Economic Justice.

Bill Nye the Science Guy talks politics, life history at Fogelson Honors Forum

first_imgFacebook Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ Twitter ReddIt Linkedin In response to another question about his time at Boeing, Nye told the story about when he got appendicitis and was able to receive treatment because he had health insurance.“There is great value in providing healthcare to citizens,” Nye said. “It’s not just an expense. Because I didn’t die I could go on and pay taxes.” Earlier on Wednesday, Nye met with about 60 honors students for a question and answer session. One question was about how to handle climate change deniers.“Ask them why they disagree with scientists,” Nye said. “You’ve just got to chip away. Don’t be in their face.”When asked about what steps he takes personally to fight climate change, Nye said he talks about it every day.“If we were talking about climate change the way we’re talking about the guys in Niger, the way we talked about what happened in Ferguson,” Nye said. “If we were talking about it we’d be doing something about it. So I talk about it every day.”Nye also said that while things seem dark now, he is confident in the future if people get politically active.“Big changes will come,” Nye said. “I encourage everyone to vote. The pendulum will swing back and science will rise again.”Some students in attendance enjoyed the political messages of the night.“I came in with expectations of what I saw when I was a kid,” psychology major Catherine Meely said. “I was delighted to see his research applied to today’s public policy.”Bill Nye signs a Honors students book. (Photo courtesy of Honors college.)In addition to inspiring students to maintain civic engagement, Nye also talked on the importance of pursuing science and innovation. At some points during the honor student question and answer, he interrupted his own answers to mention an idea that students should start researching on. These ideas included self-driving race cars and a new source of fuel for airplanes.“That’s a problem to solve you guys,” Nye said. “So get it done!”His work in inspiring students isn’t a new event, Nye said he started working on the “Bill Nye the Science Guy” show full time after looking around at the world he was living in.“I remember when the white house took the solar panels off the roof and abandoned teaching the metric system,” Nye said. “It was very troubling. I worked on making a show trying to get people excited about the fundamentals of science for a better tomorrow.” Nye added that seeing how big the show grew and the impact it had was, “really gratifying and cool.” The idea for the name, “Bill Nye the Science Guy” came about after the comedy show Nye was working on had a last minute cancellation and needed to fill six minutes of air time. Nye’s boss suggested he go on the air to fill the time talking about science, and the first “Bill Nye the Science Guy” video on the household uses of liquid nitrogen came to be.While Nye was on a comedy show prior to his transition to his hit series, he insists that his science background is still full of real science, a point he is often challenged on by his critics.Bill Nye has been ignoring the fact that he has no science-related qualifications for decades, so it might take a while… https://t.co/FIvxGccjS4— Toad To Omaha (@ToadToOmaha) October 26, 2017“I’m a mechanical engineer,” Nye said. “I took six semesters of calculus. You’re grasping at straws.”Strategic communication major Hailey Bunde said she’s a fan of Nye and his knowledge.“I thought he was really interesting, funny and engaging,” Bunde said. “I also thought he was really confident in his beliefs which comes from his education.”For more on Nye’s talks, check out TCU 360’s Twitter moment which has minute by minute coverage of the night.

When the first wave of tickets was released, they sold out in seven minutes. The second wave of tickets sold out in five.Nye addressed many of the hot-button political issues in stride, often taking a question about one topic and working it into social commentary about current political conversations. In a response to a question about artificial intelligence, Nye talked about the issues with nuclear weapons.“It cost so much money to maintain a nuclear arsenal,” Nye said. “Everyone is going on about the national debt, okay start here!

As sales occurred at a record pace, the number of active listings was down 53% year-over-year, while total inventory, which includes pending sales, was 21.9% lower.”After stay-at-home orders brought the housing market to a halt last spring, especially for sellers who re-thought their plans, 2021 is shaping up to be more typical,” said realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale. “That lack of activity is causing this year’s more normal trends to look like a huge improvement, and it is. However, when compared to pre-pandemic levels, it is very clear we are still not on par with the number of sellers we saw in 2017 through 2019, which is helping to drive one of the most competitive seller’s markets of all time. Home prices are continuing to surge, and sales are occurring nearly three weeks faster than a normal spring home-buying season.”In terms of inventory, approximately 554,000 fewer homes were available for sale on a typical day in April this year compared to last year, and with buyer demand at an all-time high, home prices are expected to continue to reach new highs before peaking in July or August.And with less homes available, more are rushing to lock in a home. Homes across the U.S. are selling more quickly than last year when most of the country was on lockdown. The typical home in the U.S. spent an average 43 days on the market this April, 20 days less than last year. Notably, it was 18 days less than the typical time on market in April 2017 to 2019, and faster than any time since 2012, underscoring the continuing record-setting demand for housing.Realtor.com’s Monthly Housing Trends Report found that homes sold even faster in the 50 largest U.S. metros at 34 days on average, down from 50 in April 2020. In Denver, homes sold in an average of 15 days, while the median time on market in Columbus, Ohio, was just 16 days, and 18 days in Austin, Texas. Five of the top 50 largest markets are seeing homes sell in less than three weeks on average. Of the nation’s largest markets, only New York saw time on market increase, up 13 days.Click here for more on Realtor.com’s Monthly Housing Trends Report.

Metropolitan Magistrate Amardeep Kaur while directing the Delhi Police to file the ATR, further listed the matter to be heard on 24th April 2021. About the Complaint Manjinder Singh Sirsa had filed a complaint dated 7th December 2020 at the North Avenue Police Station, New Delhi under sec. 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups), 153B (Imputations, assertions prejudicial to national-integration), 295A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) and 505(1)(b) (Statements conducing to public mischief) of the Indian Penal Code. The complaint alleges that Kangana Ranaut, having an ulterior motive of defaming the Sikh Community, had made a series of tweets on the protesting farmers thereby maligning the image of the Sikh Community as a whole. Series of Tweets The tweet in question dated 5th December 2020 reads as follows “Can Shaheen Bagh’s Biryani gang and Khalistani terrorists tell what their problem is about the bill. Even at the time of the CAA it was said on behalf of the government that no one would lose citizenship, yet they rioted and killed hundreds of people.” Another tweet dated 29th November 2020, questioned by the complainant, reads “Ha haha she is the same dadi who featured in Time Magazine for being the most powerful Indian. And she is available in 100 rupees. Pakistani jurno’s have hijacked international PR for India in an embarrassing way. We need our people to speak for us internationally.” Other tweet dated 2nd February 2021 reads “No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India, so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA. Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nations like you dummies.” According to the complainant, it has been submitted that this “extremely derogatory tweet” seeks to promote communal disharmony by labelling the hard working farmers, currently agitating peacefully on a large scale, as “Khalistani terrorists” thereby hurting the sentiments of thousands of farmers across the country. “That in this manner, the Respondent No. 2 by publishing the said tweets has attempted to misuse the huge social media following for oblique motives and vested interest for political mileage by defaming the peaceful protest and agitation by the farmers thereby causing an atmosphere of communal disharmony. That such an act is meant to create a divide in the society and is a clear example of “Hate Speech/Tweet” that needs to be addressed and explained before the fake, derogatory and imaginary tweet/ retweet on social media which may further cause prejudice to the farmers in their peaceful agitation and protest as ordained under the constitutional rights.” The plea reads.Next Storylast_img read more

Marsh & Parsons was untouched by the recent restructure of LSL’s other key estate agency brands Your Move and Reeds Rains and instead would appear to be busy expanding, not retrenching.Announced last month, the restructure of Your Move and Reeds Rains is already well under way and will eventually see 43 branch closures while 39 have already been transferred to an existing franchisee.“All of the training and development I’ve had at Marsh & Parsons over the last few years has undoubtedly helped me achieve my career goals, and I look forward managing a larger portfolio of people, clients and offices,” says Callum.The company’s sales director Alex Lyle, says Callum is “a driven and supportive Manager as well as a fantastic ambassador for Marsh & Parsons. “His local knowledge of North West London, his ability to develop talent and his understanding of the sales function means he is the ideal individual to take on a wider portfolio of offices in the area.” Marsh and Parsons Callum Hodgson March 13, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Special Report: Trump To Nominate Notre Dame Professor To 7th Circuit

first_imgSpecial Report: Trump To Nominate Notre Dame Professor To 7th CircuitIL for www.theindianalawyer.comPresident Donald Trump reportedly plans to nominate Notre Dame Law School professor Amy Coney Barrett to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.Barrett would take the Indiana seat on the Chicago-based appellate court left vacant by the retirement of former Circuit Judge John Tinder in February 2015. Trump’s plans to nominate Barrett were reported by news services and legal websites, including the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and ABA Journal.Barrett has been a professor at Notre Dame since 2002. Prior, she worked in private practice and clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and Judge Laurence Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.Former President Barack Obama nominated Myra Selby to the seat, but Selby, an Ice Miller LLP partner and former Indiana Supreme Court justice, never received a hearing from the Senate Judiciary Committee.Barrett and Notre Dame Law School officials could not immediately be reached for comment Monday. Republican Sen. Todd Young said in a statement, “I could not be more pleased with the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the federal bench. During the vetting process, I had the chance to interview Mrs. Barrett and expressed to the White House my belief that she would be a home run pick. I’m glad the President views her with as much regard as I do. With this selection, President Trump continues to demonstrate a knack for nominating individuals to the federal bench who will faithfully interpret the Constitution of the United States. Mrs. Barrett’s qualifications should make for a swift, bipartisan confirmation process.”Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly’s office is waiting for the announcement by Trump before commenting.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
