Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Has there been a better time to go UK share shopping? Huge uncertainties persist for the global economy as we move into 2020, sure. But careful investors have an opportunity to make a fortune by buying quality stocks at cheap prices today and watching them soar in value during the new bull market.I’d happily buy the following UK shares for my own Stocks and Shares ISA today. Just like the FTSE 250 did during the 2010s, I reckon these top stocks could treble in value during the next decade.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…#1: On cloud nineThe Covid-19 outbreak has changed the way the world operates in a number of significant ways. It’s lit a fire under e-commerce usage, for example. Coronavirus lockdowns have also changed employer and employee expectations when it comes to flexible working. This means that Cloudcall Group’s (LSE: CALL) profits could surge over the next decade, I feel.Recent data from illustrates how rapidly its market is likely to grow in the first part of this new decade. The global cloud computing sector will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 17.5% through to 2025, the research house reckons.Cloudcall Group is already riding high, and in October said that excellent sales conversion and higher sales to existing customers would see it beating forecasts for this fiscal year. This tech titan is one for UK growth share investors like me to watch during the 2020s.#2: Another top UK tech shareI’m a big fan of e-retailer The Hut Group for a variety of reasons. I love the obvious profits opportunities that the online shopping boom provides this UK share for the new decade. I’m also excited by the pace at which its THG Ingenuity e-commerce software platform is being picked up by some of the world’s biggest retailers and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies.Finally, I like the aggressive approach to expansion that The Hut Group has to supercharge earnings growth. This week it splashed out $350m to buy online skincare and beauty colossus of the US. It’s also bolstered its position in the fast-growing sports nutrition market by buying Claremont and Berryman’s for around £60m.#3: Security starI think buying GB Group is another way to get rich from the e-commerce boom. This UK share allows online operators to identify customers and verify their addresses and email details. It’s a huge market as internet shopping traffic goes from strength to strength and as cyber fraud consequently balloons.GB Group provides its services all over the world, and it saw annual operating profit soar 25% in the 12 months to September as new business streamed in. What’s more, like The Hut Group, this share is also expanding to exploit the online shopping explosion to the max. It bought HooYu Investigate earlier this month to boost its position in the field of fraud investigation. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 3 UK shares for 2021 I think could TREBLE my money in the new bull market! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

first_imgEpiscopalians, Anglicans react to historic election of Michael Curry as presiding bishop Submit an Event Listing Curate Diocese of Nebraska June 28, 2015 at 4:04 pm Glory Be and Hallelujah!! God has answered our Prayers in Bishop Curry, Servant of God as our new Presiding Bishop come November and we All look forward to joining with him in his leadership! Praise the Lord! Joseph Lawton says: Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Deputies stand on their chairs, holding aloft their phones, tablets and cameras to capture the historic moment of Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry entrance into the House of Deputies, including Deputies Dunstanette Macauley-Dukuly (Newark), the Rev. Sandye Wilson (Newark), Norberto (Bert) Jones (Newark), Delma Maduro (Virgin Islands), Wesley S. Williams, Jr. (Virgin Islands) and Rosalie Simmonds Ballentine (Virgin Islands) Photo: Cynthia L. Black/For Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] Reaction to North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry’s election June 27 as the 27th presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church – the first African American to hold that post — was swift and joyous, came both from Episcopalians and Anglican visitors who were present.Here is a sampling of other reactions.The Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, Diocese of Chicago director of networking “… tears, prayers of gratitude and for his soul as he steps into this space. Also, I’m feeling that truly the Spirit is moving in a way that many have been longing for. This is only part about his race – it is also about someone who will bring a word of hope to places and people who long have been on the margins – he will give voice to the oppressed as one who knows it firsthand. I am rejoicing.”Retired Central Pennsylvania Bishop Nathan Baxter“I’m a Trinitarian at heart. And to see this week what the Supreme Court has done about universal health care, equality in marriage and now the church being bold to embrace not only a black man as our presiding bishop but a vision for evangelism that is so engrained in his character that we are going to be ready to step forward. I praise God for this week and what God has been doing.”Three-time Liberian deputy Sheba Brown“I’m excited because he’s a good man of God. We are happy that our church is united. We have peace. It doesn’t matter who is bishop. We are all God’s people.”Union of Black Episcopalians President Annette Buchanan“We are overwhelmed, excited – and I had one colleague say that we never thought in our lifetime that we’d live to see a black president of the United States and a black presiding bishop. Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry is a longtime UBE member. He believes in the church being inclusive for all, especially African-Americans and Africans of the diaspora, and we are confident that his ministry will expand to all in the church based on the experience that we’ve had with him to date. He’s in our prayers.”As has happened with President Barack Obama, the first U.S. president of African descent, “the expectation levels are very high.”“He will be expected to right all the wrongs of the church … move more quickly than others can in being prepared for the church of the future. We hope people understand the church moves according to God’s plan. It’s not just what Michael and we want. It’s in His time.” Jane Cosby, Executive Council member from Philadelphia, longtime anti-racism advocate“I wanted him to get it. I prayed for him to get it. I prayed that it would be God’s will that he would get it. The fact that he got it on the first ballot and the fact that I’ve lived long enough to see a black president of the United States and now a black presiding bishop in The Episcopal Church, I’ve got nothing else to wish for. If I die to tonight it will be OK.“Whatever heart and humanity this church has, black folk have helped it happen. And the description that I hear of the manner in which his diocese operates makes me know that if he can be allowed to function and help these things to happen, we can begin to be a church not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. My sense is the reason it’s so difficult to get young people – other people – to come to us is that they see the difference between what we say and what we do. And in his diocese, they do.“I am just hoping that that can happen in the same manner so that it will benefit The Episcopal Church and the United States of America.”The Rev. Lisa Fischbeck, vicar, Episcopal Church of the Advocate, Chapel Hill, North Carolina“It is a bittersweet day for those of us in North Carolina. We are excited that the whole church will now experience the passion, commitment and leadership of Bishop Curry as we have known it for the past 15 years. But we certainly feel a sadness, too. Personally, I will really miss him as my bishop, but I am really excited that he will be our presiding bishop, especially at this time in the history of our church and the world.”Retired Southeast Florida Bishop Leo Frade“This is something wonderful. This is my fourth election for a presiding bishop and I’m elated. Bishop Curry is a friend. He started as bishop when I was transferred to the United States as a bishop. We’ve been close these past 15 years. What he says about Jesus is true. He is a true believer in our Lord Jesus Christ. It excites me; the church needs that kind of evangelism today, telling the world that Jesus Christ is alive and well.”Massachusetts Bishop Alan M. Gates“I think it’s a great day for the church. In a year when we’ve been so discouraged by signs of continuing brokenness in our church and in our society, it’s a sign of hope and unity. Thanks be to God.”Characterizing atmosphere at St. Mark’s Cathedral during the election, he said, “It was extraordinarily spiritual. I’m not sure people realize – I certainly didn’t before being a part of it – the extent to which the bishops really do understand balloting in the context of prayer. We gathered, we had protracted times of silence, of prayer, a lot of singing. We pretty much sang every Holy Spirit hymn in the hymnal. After the election, we sang Lift Every Voice and Sing and we sang it with gusto.”Retired Mississippi Bishop Duncan Gray III hugs an emotional Anita George, Mississippi deputy and Executive Council member, in the House of Deputies after the election of North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry as the next presiding bishop. Photo: Sharon Sheridan/Episcopal News ServiceMississippi Deputy Anita George, member of Executive Council, long involved in antiracism work“At this moment, all I can do is grin and blabber. I am filled with joy, renewed hope and pride in my church and full of expectations for the dynamics that will happen with Michael Curry and good Episcopalians. It’s going to be unbelievable.”Retired Mississippi Bishop Duncan Gray III, whose father also was Mississippi’s bishop, came over and hugged Anita George, and they began reminiscing about how far the civil rights movement had come, leading to this moment.George: “His daddy was a pioneer … work that led up to this day.”Gray: “It was when the crosses were being burned and people were being lynched. Clergy were losing their jobs.”George: “His dad tried to corral the crowd” when James Meredith tried to enter the University of Mississippi. “For us, it’s our connected history.”Gray: “It’s part of a narrative. When we sing Lift Every Voice and Sing, the faces just pass by: Medgar Evers and James Meredith.”George: “I’m very excited about looking forward with Michael. Also we have to look back and we have to remember those who sacrificed, seriously sacrificed, to get us to this point. I give thanks for each generation.”Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Mary Glasspool“What can I say? I’m just overjoyed on behalf of the whole church. Right person, right place at the right time. Michael is a person of profound faith, and the joy of Jesus Christ … he’s been gifted with an infectious joy and spirit and that gift will serve him well.”Utah Bishop Scott Hayashi“This is a very, very, very, very, very good day for us in The Episcopal Church. We have a presiding bishop-elect who can excite the church, inspire all the people and be a witness to this whole world. I believe we are so very blessed to have Michael Curry as our presiding bishop-elect. I found myself tearful at the House of Bishops, not my usual way of being.”Retired Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Barbara C. Harris (the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion)“This is a historic day for The Episcopal Church, and I think we can move forward with our mission and ministry under this new dynamic leadership. I never thought I’d live to see the day that Katharine Jefferts Schori was elected presiding bishop, and I never thought I’d live to see the election that this day brought, and on the first ballot at that.”Ohio Bishop Mark Hollingsworth Jr.“The definitive nature of this election is a reflection both of Bishop Curry’s readiness to serve as our presiding bishop, and the readiness of the church and the world in this moment for his companionship and leadership.”Western Michigan Bishop Whayne Hougland “My heart is so full. This is such an amazing day, to cap off a historic week like this with the election of Michael. He is the man of this time for this church. There’s going to be good stuff coming. We’re going to change the world.”Michael Moore, deputy from East Tennessee“As cliché as it sounds it’s just monumental with two enormous things happening this week. First, the Supreme Court decision on marriage and now, electing the first African-American presiding bishop in the history of the church. But his election has nothing to do with his race. He got elected because he is an evangelist, because of his sincerity, his spirituality and bringing people together.“I’m a cradle Episcopalian, fourth generation Episcopalian, and I think he will do a lot to bring people back together again. Through him we can send a message to the world and to my daughter, who’s become cynical about the church. He can bring us all together, not just black people who’ve left, but he can also give white people hope.“His election will send a message that we’re alive and well and we believe in Jesus Christ and we love everybody. Bishop Curry is the person to do that, that’s what we need. There’s so much divide in the world, we need someone like him to bring us together.”Bill Nance, Asheville, North Carolina, volunteering at convention“I’ve met Bishop Curry a few times, I’ve heard him preach and it’s the same way, every time. He’s full of energy and inspiration. He’s going to be good for the church. He will bring some new excitement to it, some new insights. I’m hoping he will bring some surprises. Just like today, they said he was coming in the House of Deputies by one door and he came in a different door. That’s the kind of surprise I hope he brings.”Olympia Bishop Greg Rickel “It’s a great day for the church. Bishop Curry is a true man of God. He will lead us greatly. I was so happy to be part of this moment, it was a wonderful moment, and I think we’ve got many, many great moments to come in The Episcopal Church with his leadership, and he’s a great collaborator so he’ll pull us all together in a very great way. Presiding Bishop Katharine has been fantastic. Things happen at the right time, at the right place, and that’s what happened today. The Holy Spirit was doing great work.”Byron Rushing, vice president of the House of Deputies:“This is quite a remarkable election. I’m – first – just so moved to have The Episcopal Church choose the best candidate regardless of race, and I think they did that. The other thing you see right now, and I just hope we can preserve it, is an incredible unity in both houses, incredible unity in the House of Bishops in this election, and you knew the House of Deputies wanted this after all the nominees came before us and spoke to us in that joint session. You could feel it in this house, and you saw it in our confirmation vote.“I think the church needs to take a deep breath and figure out how remarkable this is, what God and the Holy Spirit have given us. This is a huge gift, and we have to say, what will we do with this incredible gift?  It’s the opportunity both of Michael and the opportunity of the unity he has been able to demonstrate.”The Rev. Stephanie Spellers, chaplain to the House of Bishops“I can’t stop crying. This is not even about Michael Curry. … This is a victory for Jesus. … I could just feel the Spirit just pouring out, and it’s not going to be ever the same again.”— Episcopal News Service reporters Tracy Sukraw, Pat McCaughan, Mary Frances Schjonberg and Sharon Sheridan contributed to this story.

GloriaA. Warner says: June 28, 2015 at 9:14 am Great news! Bishop Frade retires in January 2016. Still Diocesan of SEFL! Great coverage of #gc78 . William A. Flint, PhD says: June 28, 2015 at 3:22 pm This election of Curry like that of his predecessor has led the church far away from its beliefs, goals and traditions. It is sad to see the commands of God thrown out as they do not and did not exist. It is time for those of us who believe that God’s word is the final interpretation of what marriage is, is the right interpretation. Same sex relations are not a part of any Biblical command.There is no place for women prancing around playing priests, bishops and what ever else they think is cute. There is a place in the church for women and that is first to serve God, their husbands and family’s, their church in whatever place they are called. There is NO place in the Bible that states women as clergy are acceptable in the eyes of God. Same with Marriage.That is a union between a man and a woman. Not two women, not two men.I predict within five years there will be nothing but remnants of this church l still around.There will be the homo groups running what is left and the women will still be discussing what color purple should women bishops wear.Too bad we have to see this former great church fade into oblivion due to heretical beliefs and throwing out not only tradition but God’s commandments.Many of us will leave this organization…no longer a church and beg the Church of Rome to take us in. They value the Word of God. Episcopalians are now nothing more than an historical foot note in church history.

Carl Bodendofer says: C Cooper says: Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group By ENS staffPosted Jun 27, 2015 General Convention 2015, Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Presiding Bishop Michael Curry June 29, 2015 at 2:11 pm From all the signs, I think, Bp. Curry is the right PB for the Episcopal Church at this time…and this, for many of the reasons indicated in the comments. It was only after his election when people noted that he is our first African-American PB that I focused on that. Important and symbolically powerful as it, I rejoice in Bp. Curry’s election chiefly because I think he can bring the church together in a new center committed to the basic mission of evangelism. He has the spirit, the generosity, the intelligence to help us get back to work and the ability to help us see that evangelism is about a whole lot more than church growth or “happy-clappy” liturgies. Over the last forty some years, I’ve seen TEC torn apart between left and right into so-called progressive and traditionalist wings. We’ve gained much and lost much and, like the rest of the country, we are polarized between those camps. And in the process, we’ve let a lot of our mission go by the board. My hope is that Bishop Curry will help guide us back to a shared compassion and faith in God that will then send us out to do the work we have been called to do. It’s a very tall order and I share the concerns of some that the expectations are very high. He can’t do this all by himself. Our divisions sadden me deeply and my prayer is that we can listen to Bp. Curry but, more important, we can listen to each other. We haven’t been doing a very good job of that and if we are to be faithful to our calling, we have to start doing it. I think Bp. Curry can help us do it. I devoutly hope so! June 28, 2015 at 8:58 pm people who celebrate the election of michael to presiding bishop because he is black miss the bigger point. we should celebrate his election because he is a thoughtful articulate leader wh possesses excellent executive skills and wh works hard to find common ground and to develope practical solutions to real problems. that, folks is what we should celebrate and thank God for. this has been michael’s record for the 44years that i have known him.kurt m. langermount pleasant, south carolina Featured Events Erna Lund says: June 30, 2015 at 5:18 pm While all the candidates were excellent, I was thrilled when I saw Michael Curry’s name among them. He was in my diocese for about a dozen years, and I was well acquainted with him during that time through Diocesan Convention and various committee and commission work within the Diocese of Maryland. When I returned home after medical school, it was both with sorrow and joy that I found he had left the diocese as a bishop. He has certainly been missed here in Maryland during the intervening years. He is a talented man and outstanding priest, a fine theologian and scholar, and a loving and kind man, not to mention a fantastic preacher! At one of our conventions I remember him well joining in on the spirituals being sung during one of the worship services that year — he can also sing! Although I was not in his parish, I got to know him and have nothing but admiration and respect for the man. He is just the right choice to lead us through the tumult of the next few years, when our beloved church will be, and in fact is already, challenged with many new ideas and challenges. We already know that some are very unhappy with these changes, and indeed, they are sometimes difficult to embrace for many Episcopalians. Being the cautious and deliberative body that we are, Michael is of the same cloth, and will, I am certain help lead us in the right paths and follow where our Lord asks us to go. Michael Curry will certainly strive to find a common way forward as Jesus would have us do, and do it in his loving and caring way. Thank you delegates for making the choice as you did! Congratulations to you Bishop Michael Curry, and may God bless and guide you.

Tags Youth Minister Lorton, VA June 29, 2015 at 9:08 am The new Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the US said in a Pentecost sermon that Christian-Episcopalians are on the march to take Christianity back from the radical right wingers and bigots that have kidnapped it. They are not true followers of Jesus, but have turned Christianity into a hateful, judgmental, bigoted religion which resembles in no way the true Gospel of Jesus. God is Love and we are called to witness to this love. I am so thankful that I am an Episcopalian. He is the first African American to be elected Presiding Bishop and he got it right. Thanks be to God! I am thankful that such a man fo faith will be leading us in the witness of God’s great Love.

The building owner with mid 40’s wanted to build a house around his hometown where he was born for his aged parents, and to live afterward, returning to the hometown by himself. He required to build a warm house with good insulation, because his previous house had a problem of serious cold air from ceiling, and to build a house not looking a brand-new house, because the nearby area is a vintage small town. Initially, the building owner wanted to have a one-story flat roof slab building. The reason was that he didn’t want the house to be outstanding in the rural town, and that he wanted to have a barbecue party or so in the roof deck, looking down the town.  Save this picture!© Hwang Hyo-chelThroughout the basic design meeting, a slant roof was recommended, due to insulation, amount of snowfall and harmony with nearby mountain figure and town alley ways, and the structure was naturally shifted from ferroconcrete to light frame wood. By observing neighboring houses, one-story slant roof house finished with traditional bricks with Toenmaru (narrow wooden porch running along the outside of room in traditional Korean-style house) was proposed like other houses in town, and easy communication with neighbors was pursued by making low fences. Toenmaru is small, but a characteristic space that can control sunshine with roof eaves, and can gather people through the open space nearby.Save this picture!© Hwang Hyo-chel Most of relationship cannot help being parallel, because of one-story house. Thus, the living room was designed to be a central space by crossing three axes. First axis is the traversing one from main front entrance to second entrance, playing a functional role of passage. Second axis is the continuous one from front garden to Toenmaru, and to back garden deck. The building is a stationary structure, but the residences feel the outside change through the structure, and communicate with neighboring environment. The last axis is the vertical one to connect the ceiling lifted by slant roof and attic area in the roof, achieving semipublic living room and naturally ventilating at the same time.Save this picture!© Hwang Hyo-chelIt is the light frame wood structure, but the traditional brick was used as outer wall material. For most of the wooden houses being built recently, stucco on plywood, cement siding or zinc are used, but in this case, the bricks was recommended as most appropriate, considering the harmony with alley way scenery and naturally aged building after 10 or 20 years. Most of the designing process, the building owner actively participated in the entertaining job, and we also could enjoyably come and go to the site.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSeaside Resort Development Competition Entry / John Thompson & Partners + Alan Dunlo…Unbuilt ProjectKita Göttingen / Despang ArchitektenArticles Share Area:  160 m² Area:  160 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Boseong House / UTAASave this projectSaveBoseong House / UTAA Boseong House / UTAA ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  Architects: UTAA Area Area of this architecture project Houseslast_img read more

The grants will be used where most needed, from paying rent on offices or safe houses and adapting programmes, to providing emergency food relief to the most marginalised women and girls, and influencing and holding governments to account on addressing the needs and priorities of women in their responses to Covid-19.The fund aims to reach the women most marginalised due to caste, age, ethnicity, indigenous status, and geographical location, with grants already made to organisations supporting women with disabilities or LBTQI+ women. Activities and services made possible through the grants include mental health support for LBTQI+ women, and the development of accessible communications on Covid-19 for women with disabilities.Womankind partners have reported a greater need for their services during the pandemic, with partners in Ethiopia, Nepal and Zimbabwe seeing a higher demand for their safe houses and shelters for women survivors of violence. However, they have been hampered by a lack of core, flexible funding.Caroline Haworth, Womankind CEO, said: “Together with our partners we recognise that existing challenges to women’s rights and wellbeing are compounded by the Covid-19 crisis and that flexible, core funding is more vital than ever. Across our policy and programmes we continue to be led by the needs of our partners and to respond directly to how the crisis is affecting them and the communities they serve. The fund will support our partners to continue their work and, in some cases, enable their organisations’ very survival. The Womankind Worldwide COVID-19 Resilience Fund is a way for us to recognise the importance of continuation of our partners’ inspiring and courageous defence of women’s rights in these unprecedented times and to express our heartfelt solidarity with them.”Womankind is also continuing to fundraise for the Fund to enable it to support more partners and the women they support as possible.

The two women, who were fired from a state TV station last December, reacted to their conviction by beginning a hunger strike.“Omonova and Eshonkulova, who have been denied justice for months, made the mistake of wanting to give some real content to the hollow official celebration of Day of the Journalist by staging a new protest against censorship and judicial bias,” Reporters Without Borders said.They were fired from the state-owned TV station Yoshlar in December after demonstrating against censorship and corruption at the station. Dismissing journalists is a particularly effective sanction in a country where the government controls all “authorized” media, as it means they are unlikely to find any other work in journalism. Their dismissal has been followed by a disturbing series of attempts to intimidate them.After an investigation marked by gross procedural violations, they lost their attempt to sue their former employer for unfair dismissal. The first hearing was suspended on the grounds of an independent journalist’s “illegal” presence in the courtroom. During the final hearing, their lawyer suddenly disappeared inexplicability, but that did not stop the judge from ruling against them. They filed an appeal on 24 June.They were fined around 3 million soms (1,220 euros) at the end of today’s summary trial, which will add to their financial difficulties.“We requested an adjournment of the hearing to allow us to get a lawyer and examine the police report of our alleged offence,” Omonova told Reporters Without Borders. “But they replied that a lawyer was not necessary, that there was no time for that, and that all we had to do was make a statement.”They are supposed to receive a copy of the verdict within three days and are determined to appeal.Such a judicial farce is typical is Uzbekistan, which is ranked 163rd out of 178 counties in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Journalists are constantly harassed in a variety of ways. The treatment that Omonova and Eshonkulova have received is clearly designed to intimidate other state media journalists who might be tempted to follow their brave example.The Uzbek authorities often use jail sentences and mistreatment to silence outspoken journalists. At least 11 media personnel are currently detained in Uzbekistan in connection with their journalistic activities.last_img read more
