See all posts by Peter Stephens Investing in buy-to-let properties has helped many investors to make a million in the past. However, tax changes, issues surrounding the affordability of house prices and the potential for rising interest rates may mean that the long-term prospects of FTSE 100 shares are superior to those of buy-to-let investments.With that in mind, here are two large-cap shares that appear to have bright futures. They could deliver impressive total returns and may improve your chances of making a million.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…MorrisonsThe recent Christmas trading update from Morrisons (LSE: MRW) highlighted the challenging trading conditions faced by major supermarkets in the UK. The company’s like-for-like sales declined by 1.7% in the 22 weeks to 5 January. This was partly due to weak consumer confidence, which could continue throughout 2020.Despite this, Morrisons is expected to report a rise in its bottom line of 6% in the current year and next year. Key to this is improving efficiency, with the company recently reporting strong progress in managing its costs. This may help it to remain competitive on price, which could strengthen its market position at a time when other supermarkets are seeking to gain market share.With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13.2, Morrisons seems to offer fair value for money at the present time. Its plans to expand its wholesale operations and upgrade its stores could strengthen its financial performance and lead to a rising share price. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business while it appears to offer a margin of safety and a relatively favourable risk/reward opportunity.ABFAnother FTSE 100 company with retail exposure, ABF (LSE: ABF), could also offer long-term growth potential. Its Primark retail operations have become an increasingly important part of its business. As such, Primark’s 4.5% rise in its quarterly sales reported in the company’s most recent update suggests that the financial prospects of the wider business could become increasingly positive over the medium term.With Primark’s products occupying a budget price point, they could continue to be popular among consumers who are highly price conscious at the present time. And, with ABF seeking to become increasingly innovative in terms of the range of services offered within its Primark stores, it could report increasing sales in the coming years.Alongside its retail segment, ABF has a wide range of operations such as its ingredients and sugar businesses that help to reduce its overall risk through diversification. As such, it could offer a favourable risk/reward opportunity for long-term investors – especially at a time when it is forecast to post a net profit rise of 8% this year and 7% next year. Its P/E ratio of 18 may not be the cheapest in the FTSE 100, but it could undervalue the company’s long-term growth prospects.last_img read more

The FTSE 100 slumps! The bargain shares I’m buying in my ISA today

first_img There are warning signs flashing all over that all is not well in the health of global markets.Over the past 12 months, stocks and shares have been able to shake off fundamental weaknesses, and investors appear to have ignored classic signals that a global slowdown was on the way.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…The inversion of the US Treasury yield curve? Ignored. Charts showing the end of a bubble-like expansion? Ignored. Rising prices in flight-to-safety assets like gold, silver, and platinum? Ignored.But it seems now that investors are waking up to the long-term problems in global supply chains that the coronavirus poses. China is the world’s manufacturing centre. If it goes dark, companies all over the world will suffer badly. And with interest rates at historic lows, banks don’t have much ammunition to help prop up markets if things continue to go downhill.Buy opportunityCertain stocks are more fragile than others to this situation. Those heavily reliant on tourism, like British Airways-owner International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE:IAG) and Easyjet (LSE:EZJ) have already been badly bruised.Newer investors who have never lived through a real downtrend might now be scared away from buying up shares. I’d say that’s a schoolboy error.Right now I am buying the shares I like best at knock-down prices.That includes FTSE 100 insurance giants Aviva and Legal & General, high-profit and high-growth AIM-listed success stories Team17 and Frontier Developments, high-yield renewables funds like Greencoat UK Wind and Bluefield Solar Income Fund, and undervalued diversified tech funds like the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust.I believe in the long-term health of these businesses. Crucially, my view on this hasn’t changed, even if the price I’m paying now is lower than it has been in recent memory. I’m being greedy when others are fearful. Warren Buffett says buySpeaking to CNBC as stock markets plummeted, the world’s greatest investor Warren Buffett reiterated his long-term value outlook, saying: “If you’re buying a business you’re going to own it for 10 years, 20 years, or 30 years. You don’t buy or sell your business based on today’s headlines“.The billionaire added: “If it gives you a chance to buy something that you like and you can buy it even cheaper it’s your good luck, basically.”Short-term pain, long-term gainInvesting for the long term comes with quite the dichotomy: you’re pleased when the value of your portfolio rises, but higher share prices means it is more expensive to buy more of your favourite stocks.If you’re planning to ride out the storm — and I’d counsel that this is your best shot at protecting your wealth — then weaker markets and falling stock prices mean there is a temporary opportunity for investors to pick up shares on the cheap.When the dust settles on the other side — however long that takes — you will have a bumper portfolio of quality stocks and shares with a lower average price paid, which makes your future gains all the more impressive.

Forget Cash ISAs. I’d buy these 2 cheap FTSE 100 stocks today to get rich and retire early

first_img 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The FTSE 100’s market crash may mean that the popularity of Cash ISAs increases. After all, they offer less risk and a stable return. That matters as the FTSE 100 could see a further decline if economic growth is negative for much of this year.However, over the long run the FTSE 100’s recovery potential seems to be high. It has a solid track record of delivering improving returns after its disappointing periods. Therefore, now could be the time to buy these two shares, as part of a diversified portfolio, to potentially bring your retirement date a step closer.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…FTSE 100 utility stock Severn TrentUnlike many of its FTSE 100 index peers, utility company Severn Trent (LSE: SVT) recently reported no change to its business performance since its last update.As such, investor sentiment towards the company has generally been higher than towards the wider index. Its share price is down by just 1% so far in 2020. This compares favourably to the FTSE 100’s 22% decline over the same time period.Should the economic outlook for the UK deteriorate, Severn Trent’s shares could enjoy high demand from investors. Its relatively low correlation with the macroeconomic outlook and solid track record of dividend payouts could make it an attractive proposition to a wide range of investors.With the stock currently offering a dividend yield of 4.1%, it seems to offer good value for money. Certainly, it may not offer the recovery potential of many of its FTSE 100 index peers. But over the long run, its relatively solid financial prospects and high yield could lead to impressive total returns.BAEAnother FTSE 100 share that been relatively popular among investors in recent months is aerospace and defence business BAE (LSE: BA). Its shares have fallen by around 10% so far this year. But this is less than half the FTSE 100’s decline, with the company’s recent trading update highlighting new contracts won since the start of the year.Of course, a challenging period for the world economy could have a negative impact on BAE’s bottom line in the coming years. Government spending on defence may fail to rise at the previously expected pace if unexpected costs from the coronavirus pandemic lead to higher spending requirements elsewhere.However, BAE has a strong financial position and a successful track record of delivering relatively consistent levels of profitability in spite of tough trading conditions. This could make it an attractive investment proposition. For example, it fared better than many of its sector peers in the last global recession. I think it could do likewise this time round.As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business as it seeks to expand its presence in growing markets through recent acquisitions and contract wins. Doing so could improve your long-term financial prospects. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Forget the Cash ISA! I’d invest £5k in these FTSE 100 dividend stocks now

first_img Enter Your Email Address Rupert Hargreaves | Monday, 18th May, 2020 | More on: SVT UU Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The recent FTSE 100 market crash may mean the popularity of Cash ISAs increases. These products offer a stable return in a time of extreme uncertainty.However, Cash ISA providers have recently slashed rates to all-time lows. This could mean FTSE 100 dividend stocks may provide a better level of income over the long term. As such, now could be the time to buy FTSE 100 dividend stocks as part of a diversified portfolio to improve your income prospects.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…Here are two income plays I’d buy today.FTSE 100 utility stockUnlike many of its FTSE 100 index peers, utility company United Utilities (LSE: UU) recently reported only a small change in its operating performance since its last update.Higher financing and operating costs are expected to weigh on income this year. But the company is unlikely to see a significant drop in revenue for 2020.As such, now could be a great time to buy a share in this income champion and take advantage of depressed investor sentiment. The share price is down by around 5.2% in 2020. That suggests the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels.The stock also offers a dividend yield of 4.7%. It has a solid track record of producing above-inflation dividend increases. That suggests United could be an attractive proposition for income investors.Therefore, while United might not offer the recovery potential of many of its FTSE 100 peers, in an uncertain economic environment, this predictable income play could be an attractive addition to your portfolio today.Severn TrentUnited’s peer, Severn Trent (LSE: SVT), also seems attractive after recent declines. Shares in the water company have fallen by around 2% this year.However, the FTSE 100 company has informed investors it doesn’t expect to see a significant impact on its operations as a result of the coronavirus crisis. As such, long-term investors could be well rewarded by taking advantage of the recent market declines.The stock currently offers a dividend yield of 4.2%. That’s above its long-term average of around 4%. This may suggest the company is undervalued at current levels. Further, Severn has a solid track record of increasing its dividend over the long run.Takeover potential also adds to the appeal of this business. In the past, Severn has been highlighted as one of the most attractive takeover candidates in the UK.With interest rates at record lows around the world, now might be the perfect time for an international competitor to snap up the business. This could generate handsome capital gains for the FTSE 100 income champion’s investors.With this in mind, now could be an excellent time for investors with a long-term outlook to buy a share of this defensive income champion. Doing so could improve your financial prospects, especially when owned as part of a basket of income stocks. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

No savings at 50? I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA today to retire in comfort

Image source: Getty Images Buying cheap FTSE 100 stocks may not seem to be a good idea for anyone who’s seeking to retire in comfort. After all, the index has experienced extreme volatility in 2020 that’s included a bear market.However, for long-term investors, the FTSE 100 could offer strong total return potential. It has a solid track record of recovery from its downturns. Meanwhile, many of its members appear to offer good value for money at the present time.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…Therefore, if you’re aged 50, or have a long-term time horizon, now could be the right time to start building a retirement portfolio filled with large-cap shares.Long-term recovery potentialThe FTSE 100 may yet experience further difficulties in the coming months. The coronavirus pandemic is an unprecedented event, likely to cause a severe decline in GDP growth in the short run.Knock-on effects could also include higher levels of unemployment and weaker consumer sentiment that creates more difficult trading conditions for many businesses. This may, in turn, cause a fall in their share prices.But the index has experienced difficult periods previously. For example, the financial crisis in 2009, the tech bubble in 2003, and the 1987 crash all included extremely uncertain periods for those investing in the FTSE 100.However, the index was able to fully recover from them, and was able to post new record highs in the years that followed those bear markets. Such an outcome isn’t guaranteed this time around. But history suggests that investors who’ve a long time horizon could benefit from buying undervalued stocks today.FTSE 100 valuationsThere are clearly major risks facing many FTSE 100 shares at the present time. However, in many cases, their prices reflect this. Many large-cap stocks currently offer margins of safety, where investors are demanding they trade at a discount to their real value.This could present buying opportunities for investors. They may be able to purchase high-quality business while they trade significantly below their historic average valuations. In many cases, they’ve solid balance sheets and sound business models that will enable them to adapt to a changing global economic outlook. This could mean they maintain, or even improve, their competitive positions in the coming years.Starting todayOne of the difficulties with investing is that the best times to buy FTSE 100 shares often coincide with the most precarious outlooks for the economy. However, through building a diverse portfolio of high-quality businesses and then holding them for the long term, you could improve your prospects of enjoying a growing passive income in retirement.As such, now could be the right time to start buying stocks. If you’re aged 50, for example, you’re likely to have 15+ years until retirement. This is likely to be sufficient time for many FTSE 100 shares to deliver impressive total returns.

FTSE investing: why I’d follow Warren Buffett’s advice to get rich

first_imgFTSE investing: why I’d follow Warren Buffett’s advice to get rich Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Markets are choppy. In these confusing times, I’ve been drawing inspiration from the legendary investor Warren Buffett. His firm Berkshire Hathaway has the most expensive share price of any company in history. Each Class A share costs upwards of $300,000. He has generated massive wealth over the last few decades.The Oracle of Omaha shares his wisdom with all, especially through his shareholder letters. So we too can learn the basics of his strategy, which is quite simple and can be followed by almost any investor. Today I’d like to share with you some of his investing principles.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…Buying on fearBroader markets are driven by two powerful emotions – fear and  greed. They fuel sell-offs and run-ups, similar to what we’ve been seeing since March. And the recent health pandemic has also brought many economic challenges as well as worry for millions in the UK and billions worldwide.Buffett firmly believes that stocks outperform all other asset classes over the long term, especially if interest rates and corporate tax rates remain low. Although Buffett is bullish on stocks long term, he has recently warned investors “that rosy prediction comes with a warning: anything can happen to stock prices tomorrow”. And the idea of buying stocks during a period of economic uncertainty may sound risky, making investors fearful. After all, many share prices could once again move lower in the short run and even stay depressed for a long time. That could even mean paper losses in portfolios. But Buffett and many seasoned investors well know that equity markets have historically delivered relatively high returns compared to most other asset classes. Today may be a good time to put the fear factor aside. Every major dip in the stock market may offer a valuable buying opportunity.Investing in an indexIn early May, Berkshire Hathaway had its widely-followed annual shareholders meeting. There Warren Buffett said that the best thing to do for most people is to buy the broad stock market rather than picking individual shares. Over the years, he has given similar buy-and-hold advice regarding indexes.When you are buy the broader market through investing in an index fund, it means you are bullish on the economy in the long run. I believe our economy is fundamentally strong. It has survived recessions, contractions as well as political uncertainty over the years. After a temporary crisis, it has always bounced back. As a result, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 continue to touch record highs.Are you interested in following Buffett’s advice? Then you could invest in shares via a simple low-cost FTSE 100 tracker. It would offer you an easy way to invest in the largest 100 companies listed domestically.You may also consider investing via Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), which you can easily buy or sell as you would any other share. ETFs offer diversification over asset classes, industries, or global regions.An example would be the iShares UK Dividend UCITS ETF — it comprises a basket of the 50 highest-yielding stocks from the FTSE 350 Index. Of if you’d also like global exposure, an ETF to consider could be the FTSE All-World ETF.For investors who do not have the time and expertise to pick standalone stocks, passive investing may be a good bet.

Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge!center_img I’ve wanted to like FTSE SmallCap company Premier Foods (LSE: PFD) for ages, but the big debt-load on the balance sheet has always put me off. However, things appear to be changing, and the shares are perky today on the release of the full-year results report.Surging earnings for this FTSE stockEarnings have been surging over the past couple of years. And looking back, the stock was a steal at the bottom of the coronavirus low in the spring when the price dipped well below 20p. Well done if you bought some shares in the company back then. Today, they’re changing hands at 65p, as I write.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…On paper, Premier Foods has a lot going for it. It operates in the fast-moving-consumer-goods space, which is traditionally seen as a defensive sector. You’ll be familiar with many of the firm’s food brands, such as Ambrosia, Angel Delight, Mr Kipling, Bachelors, Birds, Bisto, OXO, Mc Dougalls, Homepride, Sharwoods, Loyd Grossman, and others.Meanwhile, with its 15 manufacturing sites and offices in the UK, the company makes around 96% of what it produces from ingredients sourced from British suppliers and farmers. As we enter a post-Brexit and low-carbon world, I think localised supply chains will become increasingly important.But there’s also an effort going on to expand sales abroad. International sales make up around 6.5% of the total right now. But I can see much potential for growth overseas, based purely on that low figure. With a determined push, we could see sales rise quickly in the years ahead.Exciting international expansionPremier Foods reckons it has “significant” businesses in Ireland and Australia already. And the directors have identified “further opportunities” for a range of the company’s brands in “a number of markets” including New Zealand, USA, South Africa, and Canada.I think that’s exciting because the government seems to be at advanced stages in the negotiations about new Free Trade Agreements with many countries. The New Zealand discussions appear to be going particularly well, for example.Today’s figures show that in the trading year to 28 March, revenue rose by 2.8% year-on-year and adjusted earnings per share lifted by 5.4%. Importantly, the net debt figure fell by almost £62m to just over £408m on a pre-IFRS 16 basis. For context, the firm reported an operating profit of £95m for the year, so this is still a big debt load. But the directors are bearing down well on the problem and vow to continue to do so.Chief executive Alex Whitehouse said in the report the year had been “a period of considerable progress.” Indeed, there have been 11 consecutive quarters of UK revenue growth “fuelled by successful innovation strategy.” And the company revealed a “landmark” pensions agreement which has the potential to “significantly” reduce future funding requirements.There’s no shareholder dividend available with this one. But I see a firm emerging from its prior financial problems. On top of that, there are big opportunities for expansion ahead. This a share I’d like to own right now.

3 steps I’d take when building a dividend stocks portfolio right now

Building a dividend stocks portfolio may seem like a risky move at the present time. However, with the income returns available from other assets such as cash and bonds being relatively low, dividend shares could prove to be a sound means of obtaining a passive income in the long run.Through spreading your capital across a wide range of companies that offer dividend growth potential and solid financial positions, you could obtain a favourable risk/reward opportunity that produces an attractive income return in the coming years.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…Spreading the riskA dividend stocks portfolio should contain a wide range of businesses that operate in a variety of industries and economies. If it doesn’t, you are likely to be reliant on a small number of stocks for your income. Should even a small number of them experience a challenging financial period, it could lead to disappointing returns that hurt your financial position.Diversifying across multiple sectors and regions is likely to be even more important than usual at the present time. Some countries are experiencing greater challenges from coronavirus than others, while some industries are feeling the effects of lockdown to a greater extent than others. As such, by simply owning a range of businesses you not only reduce risks, but could achieve a higher income return in what is likely to be an uncertain period for the world economy.Dividend growth potentialWhen building a dividend stocks portfolio, it may be tempting to simply purchase those businesses that offer the highest yields. While this may produce an attractive income return in the current year, over the long run it may not be a sound move due to their lack of dividend growth.As such, it may be a good idea to focus on yield and dividend growth potential. This may ensure that your passive income growth beats inflation, and that you are able to improve your spending power. If this goal is not achieved, your passive income may be able to buy fewer goods and services as factors such as low interest rates and quantitative easing could lead to higher inflation across the world economy.A solid dividend stocks portfolioAt the present time, some stocks may offer high yields for a good reason. For example, they may face challenging operating conditions that have caused their stock prices to fall.As such, before buying high-yielding companies within a dividend stocks portfolio, it could be worth assessing their financial strength and outlook. By analysing their balance sheet strength, cash flow and economic moat, you can assess whether they offer a solid passive income over the long run.By focusing your capital on the highest-quality companies available, you can reduce risk and increase your chances of obtaining a generous income return that improves your financial freedom in what could be a challenging period for the global economy.

This is how I’d retire early through buying FTSE 100 shares

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Assumes investment returns of 5.5% per year, the average real UK stock returns over last 50 years £6,705.00 Investing £500 per month £216,851.00 25 £80,389.00 £108,425.00 £139,541.00 £69,771.00 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 £40,194.00 15 10 Enter Your Email Address £35,129.00 Investing £250 per month Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images. 20 As the table shows, we can reach the £100k mark in just 12 years by investing £500 per month. This means that we wouldn’t even have to start our investment plan until age 38. I think most people would be quite surprised at how quickly that kind of wealth can be accumulated.If £500 per month is too much, then we can still reach our goal with £250 per month. In this case, it would take 19 years to reach £100k. If we wanted to spend more than £20k a year, then we would have to increase the amount we invest. But it’s still possible for many of us, as long as we have a plan and stick to it. Rather than being a pipe dream, regular investing makes early retirement a realistic and achievable goal.The table also demonstrates just how much wealth it’s possible to accumulate if we do this over longer periods. Investing regularly is a good habit to get into from a young age, the earlier the better. In fact, it’s feasible to accumulate far more than £100k and to retire even earlier than 50.Retire early with FTSE 100 mega-capsTo achieve the kind of returns shown above, we need to be investing in a number of different stocks. It’s important that we diversify our investments in order to reduce risk. I’d recommend holding a minimum of 10 stocks. The last thing we want is to be unable to retire early because we’ve taken on too much risk.Again, to reduce risk, I’d stick to big FTSE 100 stocks. The kind that are household names and have a solid track record. If they pay a big dividend, then all the better. I’d also be sure to invest across a variety of different sectors and in companies that can perform well in different economic conditions.If we do all this, then chances are we will be in a great position to make our dreams a reality and retire early! 1 Many of us dream of retiring early and enjoying life a bit more. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the financial resources to make this a reality. The State Pension doesn’t kick in until we’re 66, and we can’t access other pensions until at least 55. This gives those of us wishing to retire earlier a major headache.But it doesn’t have to be this way. If we clearly define our financial goals, then we can put a realistic plan in place to help us reach them. And the best way to reach our financial goals is to regularly invest in the stock market over a period of many years. This allows our investment returns to compound over time. 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…Making early retirement a realityIf we have a pension that we can access from 55, then to retire early at 50, we’d need to accumulate enough money to get us through the interim five years. Looking at it from the simplest viewpoint, if we spend £20k a year, then we would need £100k. The table below shows how quickly we could achieve that by investing either £250 or £500 per month.

The Rolls-Royce share price is up 11% in a day! Would I buy the FTSE 100 stock now? I last wrote about the FTSE 100 aerospace and defence giant, Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR), a couple of weeks ago. At the time, the Rolls-Royce share price was falling fast. Cut to this Friday afternoon, and the share is recovering fast. It’s up 11% from Thursday’s close as I write. It’s tumble was so steep that the share price still has some way to get back to where it was two weeks ago. With the FTSE 100 index trading weak, I am not sure if it will do so in a hurry. Yet, the very fact that the RR share price is defying the FTSE 100 trend says something. Healthy investor appetite for bond offeringSo what’s the reason for this rise? Earlier in the month, RR decided to recapitalise through a fund raise. Part of this was planned to be through a bond offering to the tune of £1bn. However, in a press release this week, it said that it was now raising bonds worth more than £2bn, “Given strong demand from investors…” Further, UK Export Finance has decided to guarantee support of up to 80% for a £1bn loan taken by RR. This is in addition to the £2bn, five-year loan already raised by RR.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…Can the Rolls-Royce share price continue to rise?It’s good news that investors and guarantors have faith in RR, but to a limited extent. The Rolls-Royce share price has taken quite the beating this year, as the lockdowns impacted aviation, which is an important source of RR’s revenue.  This has resulted in a weaker financial position for it and the resultant recapitalisation that’s now underway. If the pandemic situation was coming under control, the debt raise at a bad time would be easier on the company.However, that isn’t so. UK is locking down again, and has also put Italy on its quarantine list. So, civil aviation can be expected to remain in a spot for now. This will keep RR in an uncertain place too. I’d hold back from buying the company’s shares. A promising FTSE 100 shareThis is especially because other FTSE 100 stocks can give investors superior returns compared to the Rolls-Royce share price. This is true even for other engineering companies, like Spirax-Sarco Engineering (LSE: SPX), which has seen a healthy share price increase since the stock market crash a little over six months ago. In fact, it’s now at all-time highs. There are three reasons for this. One, despite a dent to its revenues in its latest update, its operating profit margin has improved. And two, it actually increased its interim dividend by 5%. Its dividend yield remains quite low, especially because its share price has increased quite a bit. Even so, I think dividend increases are reserved for confident companies at this time. Which brings me to the third reason. Spirax-Sarco’s confidence is evident from the fact that it has kept its full-year earnings guidance unchanged. Even with the sharp run up in its share price, I’d prefer it to the RR share price right now.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Best shares to buy now: Here is one of my top FTSE 100 picks

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Jabran Khan | Thursday, 12th November, 2020 | More on: FLTR I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Jabran Khan has no position in any shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Best shares to buy now: Here is one of my top FTSE 100 picks One of my best shares to buy right now is Flutter Entertainment (LSE:FLTR). I believe the best shares to buy are those companies that are turning over a profit, growing their market share, and perhaps overlooked. In terms of price, certain shares aren’t always the cheapest but that doesn’t always put me off as I am more concerned with performance.Created by the merger of Betfair and Paddy Power, FLTR is a gambling and gaming giant. With hundreds of retail outlets, Flutter also has a strong online presence through its multiple brands. As well as Paddy Power and Betfair, its brands include Pokerstars, Sky Betting and Gaming, Oddschecker and many more throughout its international markets.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…One of the best shares to buy right nowThe gaming industry has seen growth during the recent economic downturn in which many other industries have suffered. FLTR lost approximately 36% when the market crashed. At its lowest point in mid-March, shares could be picked up for 5421p per share. As I write, shares would cost 13,660p. That is a mammoth 151% increase. For 2021, FLTR trades on a hefty price-to-earnings ratio of close to 30. Despite that meaty valuation, I do believe the gambling powerhouse is worth it.FLTR is a global business with significant scale. Through acquisitions and carefully planned strategy it positions itself to take advantage of many opportunities. This is especially the case in key markets such as Australia where its Q3 results showed significant growth. Even though Covid-19 is still affecting the economy, I believe FLTR is well positioned to grow further and this is why I class it in my best shares to buy now category.Trading updateYesterday FLTR confirmed Q3 results and it closed up nearly 5% on the FTSE 100 due to the positive news. It confirmed that results exceeded expectations as increased numbers of customers helped bolster the gambling giant. Group revenue increased by 30% to £1.3bn compared to the same period last year. Outside the US, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation, and amortisation) for the year is expected to be in the region of £1.275 to 1.35bn. That’s a £25m increase on previous guidance.A global pandemic saw restrictions on retail outlets. FLTR has hundreds of these but it also possesses a formidable online presence. In Q3 online revenue grew an impressive 33%, while average daily customers grew by 41% globally. The first lockdown saw competitive sport grind to a halt. But as it started up again in the summer, FLTR’s brands such as Paddy Power Betfair and Sky Betting and Gaming have flourished. These two brands recorded revenue growth of 32% and 26% respectively. I mentioned FLTR’s ability to excel in key markets. In Australia it recorded a growth of 76% in revenue alone with its BetEasy brand.My verdictFLTR is not the cheapest share to purchase so here is another one of my top picks. Flutter has beaten off the economic downturn and continued to experience significant growth. I believe this upward trend of growth and significant gains in market share across the world will continue. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

The Royal Mail share price: what’s next for the stock?

first_imgThe Royal Mail share price: what’s next for the stock? Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… The Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) share price has surpassed my expectations over the past 12 months. Since hitting a multi-year low of around 119p in March of last year, the stock has jumped 250%. Pandemic growth It seems to me that the coronavirus pandemic has led to a significant improvement in investor sentiment towards the business. For years, Royal Mail struggled with falling letter volumes and revenues, which had impacted profitability and sales. The pandemic exacerbated the decline in letter volumes but, on the flip side, it also led to a substantial increase in parcel volumes. 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…The company rose to the challenge. The introduction of automated parcel sorting machines helped improve efficiency. Meanwhile, the introduction of a parcel pick-up service billed as “one of the biggest changes to the daily delivery since the launch of the post box in 1852,” seems to have been well received. Thanks to these changes, Royal Mail’s outlook has substantially improved. This time last year, analysts were expecting the company to report earnings per share of 11p for 2021. Today, that figure is 25p. To me, these figures show that Royal Mail has been able to take advantage of the changing shopping habits driven by the pandemic. Doing so looks to me as if the business has been able to overcome the challenges it has faced in the past. What’s next for the Royal Mail share priceThe big question is, what happens next? It seems to me the primary reason why the stock has performed so well over the past 12 months is the fact analysts now think the company will return to growth in 2021/22. Unfortunately, it now looks as if much of this potential is already factored into the current share price. Indeed, shares in the organisation are currently changing hands at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of around 16, falling to 14 for 2021.However, in the past five years, the stock has struggled to get above a 10 times forward earnings valuation. To put it another way, it looks to me as if shares in the group are overvalued by 60% to 40% at current levels. That being said, Royal Mail has surpassed all expectations over the past 12 months. As such, I wouldn’t rule out further growth from the company in the near term. If the group can develop and consolidate its position in the parcel market, I reckon it’s highly likely the Royal Mail share price could continue to move higher. Therefore, I’m cautiously optimistic about the company’s future potential. As the e-commerce market’s size continues to grow, demand for Royal Mail’s services may also continue to increase. That could lead to further earnings upgrades. On that basis, I’d continue to own the stock in my portfolio, even after its recent positive performance.  Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The stock investing strategy I’d use to generate a passive income

first_imgThe stock investing strategy I’d use to generate a passive income See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Stock investing is one strategy that can be used to generate a passive income. A passive income is defined as money that requires little or no effort to earn. Many assets can be used to achieve this goal. Some come with more risk than others, which means they may be more suitable for different investors. 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…Stock investing can be quite risky and may not be suitable for all investors as a way to generate a passive income. However, I’m quite comfortable with the level of risk investing entails. That’s why I’ve acquired a portfolio of stocks and shares with the single goal of generating a steady, hands-free income stream. Stock investing strategyI own a mix of high- and low-yield shares for my passive income portfolio. I believe this combination offers the best of both worlds. That’s because companies with low dividend yields tend to have more headroom to increase their distributions over the long run. Meanwhile, high-yield shares can lack this flexibility, but the more generous yields are understandably appealing.I’m comfortable with this portfolio mix based on my experience. But I’m well aware that just because a company has a low dividend yield doesn’t mean the payout is more sustainable. As for high-yield shares, if an organisation supports a dividend yield that’s noticeably higher than the market average, it can be a strong sign the market doesn’t believe the payout is sustainable. A yield only gives us some indication of a firm’s income potential. It’s not a guaranteed payout. That’s one of the reasons why investing in stock and shares may not be a suitable passive income strategy for all. Passive income picks Blue-chip income champions such as British American Tobacco and BP are some of the companies I’d buy for my income portfolio. Shares in these organisations offer dividend yields of between 6% and 8%.These are some of the highest yields in the FTSE 100, which could be a warning sign as I mentioned above, although I believe the payouts are safe for at least the next 12 months. After that, it’s a bit harder to tell. Nothing is ever guaranteed in the stock market. There may also be ethical reasons why investors may want to avoid these businesses. Alongside these blue-chips, I’d also consider mid-cap stocks such as LSL Property and CMC Markets. These stocks currently support dividend yields of 4.3% and 3.4% respectively. Unlike the blue-chip companies outlined above, both groups are still relatively small players in their sectors.I think that leaves plenty of room for future growth, supporting dividend expansion. Of course, growth isn’t guaranteed at either business. Their respective management teams may have their work cut out to grow in the viciously competitive property and financial services markets.Still, as passive income investments, I’d acquire these stocks. But I’d also keep a close eye on their growth efforts. Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in British American Tobacco.

2 UK stocks from my ‘best shares to buy now’ list

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The uncertain economic outlook may mean that some investors are unsure about buying UK stocks at the present time. For example, they could suffer from weak operating conditions, and may even deliver negative returns.However, the risks posed by an uncertain economic performance may have been priced into the valuations of many FTSE 100 stocks. As such, they could offer favourable risk/reward opportunities on a long-term basis.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…Here are two companies that could be among the best shares to buy now because of their low valuations and capacity to benefit from a potential improving long-term economic outlook.A cheap bank among UK stocksSome of the worst-performing UK stocks over the last year have been banks such as Barclays. Its stock price is down by around 20%, even after a recent surge. Low interest rates and a tough economic outlook seem to be causing investor sentiment to weaken. This trend could continue, depending on how coronavirus affects the economy in the coming months.However, this risk appears to be factored in to the Barclays share price. The bank has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 10, yet it’s forecast to produce a 45% rise in net profit next year. This could catalyse investor sentiment, while the prospect of a return to paying dividends may also cause interest in the stock to increase.Barclays is also reducing its costs to become more efficient. The global nature of its operations may provide some diversification benefits versus UK stocks that lack a geographical spread.One of the best shares to buy now?Another FTSE 100 stock that could be one of the best shares to buy now is Barratt. The housebuilder appears to offer good value for money relative to other UK stocks. It has a P/E ratio of 11, and is forecast to post a 10% rise in its bottom line in the next financial year.It also has a high customer satisfaction rating that may reduce potential costs in the coming years. Its strong balance sheet could mean it’s in a good position to outperform sector peers.Of course, factors such as a change in government policy towards the housing market could weigh on its future prospects. However, with other potential catalysts, such as low interest rates having the capacity to provide sound operating conditions for the housebuilding sector, the long-term outlook for the company could be relatively positive.Clearly, Barratt’s lack of international diversity means it’s very dependent on the UK for its financial returns. As such, buying other UK stocks as part of a diverse portfolio could reduce geographic risk. It may also allow an investor to capitalise on faster-growing economies from across the world. Over time, this may produce relatively high returns that have a positive impact on a portfolio’s performance.

The group operates in the UK and Spain and so the vaccine rollout in the former may help the shares in the not-too-distant future. Especially if vulnerable groups can return to bingo halls.The group also has proprietary technology, which I think is currently not something most investors are aware of. It has a commercial partnership with Bauer to use the platform. Growth in this area could possibly boost the shares in the future.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares There can be no doubt an economic recovery will come, once Covid vaccines are fully rolled out to the most vulnerable groups. JD Wetherspoon (LSE: JDW) shares could be well positioned to rise in that situation, I feel.I much prefer them to the more indebted Marston’s, which has recently seen a bidder walk away from a takeover. 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…Why Wetherspoons’ shares could recoverThe pub group, founded and still run by vocal Brexiteer Tim Martin, has been able to raise money from shareholders on several occasions. This has helped it through the pandemic to date. The most recent raising was for £93.7m. Last year, it raised £141m.The latest cash will help strengthen the balance sheet. Bullishly, the group has also said it wants to buy attractively-priced properties. Management thinks this will help it emerge stronger from the pandemic. On the downside, the pandemic has pushed up debts, net debt including bank borrowings and finance leases was £836m in April 2020. In the latest annual report, the company also said the year-end net-debt-to-EBITDA ratio was 9.48 times, compared to 3.36 times in 2019.But it does have cash available and I expect the profit and loss to look much stronger once sales lift again.Experienced management teamI think another thing going for the business is that the managers are very experienced and have seen plenty of ups and downs in the economy. Tim Martin has been chairman since 1983. His CEO John Hutson has been on the board since 1996, and his finance director since 2014. This strikes me as a positive sign that the management team is committed, know their industry and work well together.They probably think longer term, especially with the founder still at the helm and being the largest shareholder in the group. My best guess is that once the pandemic subsides and we learn to live with it, Wetherspoons will return to being a profitable, cash generative business, although there’s no guarantee that social life will go back to what it was. The firm is currently a much more indebted business than I would like too, but this is beyond its control. Also, if Martin sells down his holding in the group in the future that could spook investors and push down the share price. So there are a few issues facing the pub group. Another share that could bounce backRank Group (LSE: RNK) the owner of Mecca bingo and Grosvenor Casinos is another leisure business that has felt the impact of lockdowns.

England surpass all expectations

first_imgNOT FOR FEATURED Front up: England’s Dan Cole, Dylan Hartley and Alex Corbisiero celebrate being given a penalty try against IrelandBy Ben ColesFour wins from five. Not even the most optimistic England fan in their right mind would have predicted that outcome at the start of this year’s RBS 6 Nations. Yet now England will look back on their defeat to Wales not with the same sense of pride they seemed to feel at the time, but with a sour taste of what might have been.That sense of regret is only warranted based on their two outstanding performances in the last two weeks. After the attacking joie de vivre of Paris came the brute power of England’s scrum against the Irish. The scrum is often chastised for it’s consumption of valuable time on the clock, but Saturday proved that if you can create a powerful platform, you do not just secure possession but also force your opposition to submit.Pure delight: Try-scorer Ben YoungsAlex Corbisiero showed flashes of brilliance against Wales and France, but against Ireland he was magnificent. His personal demolition of first Mike Ross and then Tom Court brought great satisfaction to the Twickenham faithful, though it would be rude to forget the exploits of his cohorts Dylan Hartley and Dan Cole. Of course, there is little point in creating countless penalty opportunities if you have no one available to convert them. In Owen Farrell, England have less a kicker and more a marksman of the highest calibre. His 20 points against Wales are just the start of what should be a lengthy England career. Whilst his style is certainly more direct and routine than say that of Rhys Priestland of Johnny Sexton, there is flair within him that we are yet to see at Test level.The pack may have brought about England’s first try of the afternoon, but the second one was one of individual rapture. It’s difficult to decide who needed Ben Youngs to score a try more; himself or the England fans who were beginning to lose faith in him. Yet his snipe from a tap penalty after yet another massacre at the scrum was vintage Youngs, if the term can be applied to a player quite so young. The outpouring of emotion that came as a result was a visual example of the monkey being thrown from his back. Warrior: Chris Robshaw attempts to charge down Eoin Reddan’s clearanceTo have won four matches with a new captain and such a large quantity of new players in the starting XV (Botha, Parling, Robshaw, Morgan, Dickson, Farrell and Barritt all started against Ireland despite not having been involved at the Rugby World Cup) says a great deal about the attitude and camaraderie in the camp. Certainly Stuart Lancaster deserves praise for this, but perhaps the good work of Chris Robshaw has been forgotten. In that most savage of international arenas the weekend before last in Paris, Robshaw put in 24 tackles. He has been a warrior, who off the field has gone about his business quietly but on it has lead his side superbly.Four wins from five. That, surely, must be enough to give Lancaster the job long term. It is a position that he wants, not just for personal ambitions but because he better than anyone sees the potential of this side. Why after establishing that level of trust, passion and unity between players and coaches would the RFU want to start again with Nick Mallett? In a way, he has made the decision futile. Why? Because whomever the RFU appoint, Lancaster is the right coach to take England forward. Bring in someone such as Sir Clive Woodward to help handle the managing side of affairs, certainly, but do not take a backward step after making such giant strides forward. English rugby is on the rise again. It feels good. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Were yellows for Gethin Jenkins and Coenie Oosthuizen right?

first_imgBy the same token, too, referees need to be as strong as Rolland was, but much earlier. They can pre-empt this by being firm with players before the first scrum, telling them in no uncertain terms that there will be no pushing before the ball is in, by ensuring binds are sound and by making sure the contest for the ball is as even and safe as possible.There is still some way to go for both international packs and referees. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In charge: Alain Rolland didn’t mess about while whistling through his last Test match, Wales versus South AfricaBy Alan DymockLET’S SET the scene first: on Saturday at the Millennium Stadium referee Alain Rolland pulled out a yellow card and sent off the loose-head from Wales and the tight-head from South Africa.It was a move that caused some onlookers to question the referee. The card was brandished following a series of collapsed scrums – an outcome that should become less likely following the introduction of the pre-bind and new sequence of the experimental law variations at the scrum – but while Rolland had previously warned Gethin Jenkins of Wales and Frans Malherbe that another collapse would result in time in the bin for both players, South Africa had acted by substituting Malherbe for Coenie Oosthuizen but as the next scrum inevitably met the deck the new prop and Jenkins were sent to the sidelines.Singled out: tight-head Frans MalherbeNow some commentators have criticised Rolland for introducing uncontested scrums to a nerve-jangling Test match – Paul Williams said in his blog on rugbyworld.com that it was like having “swingball on centre court at Wimbledon” – but the referee had set this move in motion minutes before.Firstly, it must be noted that the changes to the scrummaging sequence were changed in order to ensure player safety; while entertainment value must also be a consideration, it runs as a secondary point some 10,000 lightyears behind that of looking after the athletes.  So when the issue of collapsed scrums comes up in a Test match between two of the world’s best with some of the most brutish, dynamic biff-traders in the game trying to squeeze the will out of each other, they cannot be allowed to pile in and drop. Sometimes players do not know best.Which brings in the second point. We would all rather the referee was assertive and in control at one of the most technical and dangerous points of the pitch. You can nitpick about whether the binding on shirts was legal or safe all game and it must certainly be said that Rolland should have done more to police the put-in. <> at Millennium Stadium on November 9, 2013 in Cardiff, Wales. However, it is the early shove which made collapse all the more likely and while he did not mention this specifically in dispatches, by telling two props that they are on the tip of a pack collapsing and that they really ought to cut it out, he has begun to be assertive. In the end he had decided that enough was enough and that someone from each team should be punished.Technical issue: without Adam Jones, who steadies Wales?Referees taking a stand over an issue in order to keep the game safe and in order to halt the incessant re-starts can only be a good thing and had he been weak-willed he could have relented once a new prop came on, but Rolland didn’t. He promised Jenkins a yellow and when he went down he got one. Oosthuizen had only hit one scrum, but what do you do: punish one side and let the other off with it? That would cause much more of an uproar than making everyone endure 10 minutes of uncontested scrums.Which brings up two more important, wider points. If players at this level still don’t have the technical wherewithal and knowledge to pre-bind, hit, hold and then drive without falling down then they are not as good as they can be and scrum coaches at club and country need to up their game alongside players who must know they have to adapt.last_img read more

Six Nations: England 36-15 Italy

first_imgTries: Venditti, Campagnaro. Con: Allan. DG: Allan.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. England naivety – “I’m the referee not a coach.” Those were the words of Romain Poite when asked on two occasions by England players how they could combat Italy’s tactics at the tackle area and make it a ruck, thus introducing an offside line. And it was the quote of the day.England’s inability to think on their feet and work out an answer to the problem was worrying – as was the frustration seeping into the hosts’ game, which resulted in them forcing passes and attacks. It’s not the referees job to provide the answers; these players are internationals and should be able to do that themselves.Chat show: James Haskell and Dylan Hartley try to get clarification from Romain Poite. Photo: Getty ImagesWhy continue to commit numbers to do the breakdown when they have no counter-ruckers to hold off? That simply meant Italy outnumbered England and could withstand the attack. Why not pick and go, forcing the Italians to tackle and defend at close quarters? Or charge through the middle? These questions were not asked let alone answered, as England seemed unable to react to something unexpected.Coaches chipping in – One of the Italian back-room team, bringing on the tee for a Tommaso Allan penalty attempt in the first half, raised an area of concern with referee Romain Poite while he was on the pitch. Hopefully this doesn’t become a common trend. Yes, messages are passed from coaches to players via water carriers and physios, but they should not be having direct conversations with the referee during the game. That should be left to the players in general and the captains in particular.Farrell’s boot – Owen Farrell is renowned for his cool head and unerring boot in front of goal, that’s why he’s reached 50 caps so quickly. Yet on the occasion of his half-century, his usual accuracy was missing. Not only did he miss three conversions and one penalty attempt – albeit they weren’t easy – he also failed to find touch with one penalty and kicked the ball dead with another when England opted for territory rather than a shot. England will be hoping he is back on target when Scotland come calling in two weeks for the Calcutta Cup match.Off target: Owen Farrell kicked only three of seven shots at goal against Italy. Photo: Getty ImagesSTATISTICS16 – Offloads made by England compared to just two by Italy. They also made 11 line breaks to five.110 – Metres made by Mike Brown, the only player to hit three figures.

England secured the bonus-point win that was expected against Italy in round three of the Six Nations, but the manner in which they did so was not what was expected. Italy led 10-5 at the break having frustrated England for 40 minutes with their tactics at the breakdown and only allowing the hosts to escape their own half on rare occasions.Eddie Jones’s team responded with two quickfire tries early in the second half and crossed the whitewash six times in all, but they still didn’t have it all their own way.A second consecutive Grand Slam is still on the cards for England – as is a record for the most consecutive Test wins – but this performance will have given Scotland and Ireland hope ahead of their matches in coming weeks. Here’s a look at the good and the bad…WHAT’S HOTItalian nous – Yells of ‘offside’ and all-round groans dominated the first half. The Twickenham crowd were clearly not impressed by Italy’s tactics of standing off after a tackle and not forming a ruck, therefore ensuring there was no offside line so they could consistently harry England and disrupt Danny Care’s passing game. Teams have done this before but no one to as good effect as the Italians here.Not only did England look at a loss as to what was going on, frustration growing each time Romain Poite called “tackle only”, but it meant Italy had a strong blue line of defenders to hold off England’s next wave.Rebound: Giovanbattista Venditti scored from a penalty hitting the post. Photo: Getty ImagesYes, it’s not a positive tactic and rugby would be an unattractive game if every team did it for 80 minutes. Eddie Jones said “it wasn’t rugby”, even if he did congratulate Italy for being “brilliant in their execution”.Yet who can blame Italy for employing it here? Talk in the build-up had been about relegating them from the Six Nations and how England were going to rack up a huge score – remember Jones saying he wanted his team to take Italy to the cleaners? They’re fighting to prove they deserve their place in the championship and while it wasn’t pretty, it was effective, especially for a team under such pressure.Conor O’Shea said of the tactics afterwards: “When Wasps score a try to beat Toulouse in the European Cup and David Pocock intercepts a ball in the autumn Internationals it’s brilliant, but when Italy do this it’s not allowed. I’m incredibly proud of the players and I’m sick of people having a pop. I hope we got a bit of respect out there.”Take two – In the second half, when England decided to put pace on the ball and spread it wide, rather than get caught up in their breakdown travails, they were able to stretch Italy, find space and score tries. They also got the upper hand at the scrum, that dominance up front allowing them to use their dangerous runners. They still didn’t dictate play for the whole 40 minutes, but it was enough to secure the bonus-point win.Fast show: Danny Care scores from a quick tap penalty. Photo: Getty ImagesSpecial mention also for Joe Launchbury. Man of the Match in Wales and Man of the Match again against Italy, he gave England go-forward with strong carries in the second half, gets through a huge amount of work at close quarters and was a calm head throughout.Return of the drop-goal – Johnny Sexton slotted a drop-goal against France in Dublin and less than 24 hours later Tommaso Allan dissected the posts with one at Twickenham. You don’t see many DGs in top-level rugby these days so it was good to see two in as many days – and Allan’s one was vital for Italy. It was a reward for a wealth of possession and territory in the first half when he hadn’t been able to notch points from the tee.Campagnaro magic – This was Michele Campagnaro’s first start in this championship and he was probably Italy’s most dangerous player. His try was a beauty: beat George Ford, cut between Jamie George and Elliot Daly, stepped Mike Brown and slid over. It showed all his talents and was well deserved.Centre of attention: Michele Campagnaro scores Italy’s second try.

She couldn’t make it all the way to the line but offloaded to Vicky Fleetwood, who crossed from close range.Michela Sillari did get some points on the board from a penalty when Scarratt was sin-binned for a high tackle but Helena Rowland cancelled that out with a kick of her own to give England a 17-3 lead at the break.England kicked into gear midway through the second period with a flurry of tries. Abby Dow (two), Harriet Millar-Mills and Helena Rownland all crossed between the 54th and 62nd minutes as the toll of Italy’s defensive effort – and their lack of rugby in the past five months – started to tell.

The ball was picked up by Scarratt, who burst clear from her own half to score under the posts and then converted her own try.

Union of Black Episcopalians, partners honor four women

first_img Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME [Episcopal News Service] Two clergy women and two lay women were honored July 3 by the Union of Black Episcopalians Partners in Mission as the “Legendary Tribute & Gala: Celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Women’s Ordination in the Episcopal Church.”The event, held at the Indianapolis Marriot Downtown Hotel in connection with the 77th meeting of General Convention, featured the inaugural Pauli Murray Humanitarian Service Award and three honor awards in the names of Verna Josephine Dozier, Anna Julia Haywood Cooper and Mattie Hopkins.House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson received the Verna Josephine Dozier Honor Award.The Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas, professor of religion at Goucher College and associate rector at Church of the Holy Comforter,Washington, D.C., received the Anna Julia Haywood Cooper Honor Award.Deborah Harmon Hines, vice provost for school services and professor of cell biology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, received the Mattie Hopkins Honor Award.The Rev. Altagracia Perez, rector, of Holy Faith Episcopal Church, Inglewood, Calif., and an Episcopal Church Foundation Fellow received the Pauli Murray Humanitarian Service award.The awards, part of Union of Black Episcopalians (UBE) Partners in Mission includes the Union of Black Episcopalians, Episcopal Women’s Caucus, Episcopal Women’s History Project, Episcopal Church Women, Episcopal Church Foundation, Church Pension Fund, Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes and others, concluded the organization’s July 2-3 annual business meeting.At that gathering, themed “Practicing our Faith: Reconciling God’s People” UBE members grappled with familiar issues—restructuring, budgetary concerns, attracting new members and possible relocation of the group’s national headquarters.The Rev. Angela Ifill, Episcopal Church missioner for Black Ministries, made an impassioned plea for involvement in the “School to Prison Pipeline” which aims to offer support to youth of color, who are often at-risk and disproportionately incarcerated, she said.At the opening UBE Eucharist a day earlier, the Rt. Rev. Gayle Harris, Bishop Suffragan of Massachusetts, called for the forging of “a true coalition for justice, freedom and equality for all people” above and beyond church walls.Harris, preaching before more than one hundred people at St. Philip’s Church near downtown Indianapolis, said “sometimes we’re so concerned with our own situation, … our own equality that we see others as competitors for the same piece of pie of America. Instead of battling over crumbs, I think it’s time we get together and honor all the children of the same God.“Instead of fighting over a larger piece of pie, let’s get together and take over the whole darn bakery,” she said amid laughter.Harris also name-dropped.She invoked historical names, like Absalom Jones, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass and many others as examples “of those whose shoulders we stand upon.”And she also cited more recent examples, Bishop Gene Robinson of New Hampshire; Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and President of the House of Deputies Bonnie Anderson, inviting the congregation to become the shoulders for someone else.“Jesus said for if you love those who love you who look like you, talk like you, smell like you, live like you, what reward is that, that you have,” she asked the gathering.“In terms of justice, freedom and equality we celebrate on this, the anniversary of the birth of this country and of this gathering of the UBE, it is time to pass the particular case of our own struggle to the case of the universal, to do the work that will ever be before us because no one is free or truly liberated or has equality until all of us are.”– The Rev.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Pittsburgh, PA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Press Release Service The Rev. Canon Emily Morales, a member of the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance, July 10 helps distribute copies of her committee’s proposed 2013-2015 triennial budget to a joint session of General Convention. ENS photo/Sharon Sheridan[Episcopal News Service — Indianapolis] Editors’ note: story updated  July 11, 2012 at 7:30 a.m. EDT to reflect that General Board of Examining Chaplains was fully funded.The Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance July 10 proposed a budget for the Episcopal Church in the 2013-2015 triennium that its chair called “a good budget for the church.”The 2013-2015 triennial budget is balanced at $111,516,032, compared to $111,808,350 for current triennium and comes with a very small surplus of $30,000.The proposed budget is available here.Both the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies must approve the budget, agreeing on any changes supported by one house or the other. The vote is scheduled for July 11. The approved budget will go into effect on Jan. 1.“Our work has been hard, but it has been rewarding,” PB&F Chair Diane Pollard, deputy from New York, told a joint session of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies. “We felt that at the end of the day, despite the very short and tight schedule that we had, we were able to produce what we believe is a good budget for the church.”Still, she said, the current budget-planning process must change.It is “complicated and takes place in a compressed time-frame,” she said, adding that the shorter length of this convention “required that we complete the budget within 36 hours of our final hearing.” Many resolutions that included requests for funding had been considered before the committee had to complete the budget.“We wish to reiterate our desire for an ongoing budget process that takes place throughout the triennium and involving the Executive Council, the [chief operating officer] and staff of the Domestic & Foreign Missionary Society, and the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance,” Pollard said, urging council to commence such a process as soon as possible.The spending portion of the budget is allocated according to the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, and the categories of administration and governance.“All categories are to some extent arbitrary, and PB&F has placed certain expenses in certain categories recognizing that others might choose different categories,” Bishop of Maine Steve Lane, PB&F vice chair, told the joint session.Income assumptionsThe budget assumes $73.5 million in commitments from the church’s dioceses (line 2), nearly $4 million less than that in the current triennium. That total is based on keeping at 19 percent the amount that the church asks dioceses to annually contribute to the church-wide budget.Each year’s annual giving in the three-year budget is based on a diocese’s income two years earlier, minus $120,000. General Convention’s 2010-2012 budget was based on a 21 percent asking in 2010, 20 percent in 2011 and 19 percent in 2012.“Although there has been considerable discussion about reduced askings and changes in future askings, PB&F believes 19 percent is appropriate to maintain the work of the church as it considers restructuring,” Lane said.PB&F acknowledged in its budget document what it called significant downward pressure on income in some parts of the church.”The 2013-2015 diocesan income total also anticipates a one percent annual decrease in diocesan operating income, an assumption that Episcopal Church Treasurer Kurt Barnes had told the budget committee earlier in the convention was conservative.“We recognize that some dioceses will not pay their full asking regardless of the level of asking for a variety of reasons,” the committee said in the budget document.While the budget asks for 19 percent from the dioceses each year, not all dioceses give the full amount and thus the projected diocesan income is forecast, in part, on giving trends. For instance, Barnes told the committee earlier in the convention that the average rate of giving in 2012 has been 15 percent, with the asking at 19 percent.Just more than 41 percent of the dioceses and regional areas committed to contributing the full amount in 2012. A list of diocesan commitments for this year is here.PB&F recommends the church reconsider the asking formula and “that the Episcopal Church engage in a theological conversation about giving to the church‐wide budget as it considers restructuring.”Kay Bishop, a Diocese of California alternate lay deputy, begins to study the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance’s proposed 2013-2015 budget July 10 shortly after the committee presented it to the House of Bishops and House of Deputies. ENS photo/Sharon SheridanThe budget revenue also includes a five percent draw, or dividend, on the income from the church’s approximately $215 million in unrestricted invested assets. The draw amounts to $25.5 million, compared with $27.5 million in the current triennium (line 3).The unrestricted investments are expected to annually earn eight percent. The draw is a half-percentage point lower than in the 2010-2012 budget. Because of the way the formula is calculated, the portion of the investment income from which the draw comes is the actual results in 2007-2011, according to the commentary in the budget at line 3.In addition, the budget will draw another $4.1 million of the income from unrestricted assets to pay for a new development office (line 4). It is meant to be a one-time grant. The office is expected to be fully staffed and generating money for the church that exceed the office’s operating costs by the end of the triennium, the budget document says.The development office draw would put the total dividend from investment income at 5.8 percent.Pollard said the committee is persuaded of the need for an office that would “support Episcopalians with significant resources in making gifts to particular ministries for which they have a deep and abiding passion.”However, she acknowledged that “earlier efforts at creating such an office have been haphazard and underfunded and that, as a result, some in the church regard the Development Office with a skepticism verging on cynicism.”The rest of the budget’s income comes from rental of 3.5 floors of the church center in New York, General Convention income from registration and exhibitor fees, other event and program fees and other small income sources.The budget anticipates a reduction in the churchwide staff of 12 positions or 10.75 full-time equivalents. Some of those positions are currently vacant and the other reductions will be allocated by program heads and the chief operating officer, PB&F said.The budget the church’s Executive Council proposed to PB&F called for 135 churchwide positions plus 21 in the work of Episcopal Migration Ministries that is supported by money from government contracts.In 2009, when PB&F made a $23 million cut from the budget that Executive Council had proposed, approximately 40 staff positions were either eliminated or reduced. In the 1995-1997 triennium, the staff level was at 225.The expense sideSpending in the 2013-2015 budget is structured around the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, using the template of an alternative budget Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori proposed in June.The 76th General Convention directed (via Resolution D027) that the 2013-2015 budget be organized according to the Five Marks of Mission.To conform to canonical requirements to designate spending in the areas of canonical, corporate and program, each expense line is coded to one of those three categories, and the budget’s enabling resolution (A005)  summarizes the spending in that way.Canonical expenses are funded at $20.1 million, corporate at $33.9 million and program at $57.3 million. The amounts for each category in each year are specified in the budget resolution.A major new feature of the budget includes a block grant in each of the five marks of mission for new work. The committee sees the grants as a way to “create collaborative partnerships with dioceses and congregations” for which the Episcopal Church will provide seed money and/or matching grants, along with staff support and expertise, according to Lane. The precise planning of the program and grants is left to Executive Council and the church center staff, the committee said.Even though not every new program will be successful, the committee said, it urges “experimentation” with a full accounting of the results to the next convention.The grants include $2 million for a “Mission Enterprise Zones” program and for church planting (line 27), $1 million for young Episcopalians to engage in missionary work (line 79) and for Episcopalians to engage in work to eradicate domestic poverty (line 108). There is also $1 million to support the work of Province IX (line 61) and $500,000 to help create and foster networks and diocesan and congregational efforts toward environmental sustainability (line 122).The Mission Enterprise Zones stems from Resolution A073 proposed by the Standing Commission on the Mission and Evangelism of the Episcopal Church. The fund would give grants of up to $20,000 each to dioceses to form Mission Enterprise Zones, “defined as a geographic area, as a group of congregations or as an entire diocese committed to mission and evangelism that engages under-represented groups.” Until the next convention, the zones would be granted greater freedom as authorized by the bishop in consultation with diocesan leadership regarding the designation of “congregation” status, traditional formation for and use of ordained leadership and the use of authorized texts for principle worship gatherings.Other highlights in the budget include:* Restoration of funds for the work of formation and vocation, including campus ministry grants and for youth gatherings such as the Episcopal Youth Event and for lifelong Christian formation. (2013-2015 amount budgeted is $2.8 million in lines 63-71).* Increases the total amount of money for the church’s four aided Indian Country dioceses (Alaska, Navajoland Area Mission, North Dakota and South Dakota from just more than $4 million to $4.9 million (lines 149-153), and leaves all other grants to Haiti, the Virgin Islands, Guam, Taiwan, and the aided dioceses in Province IX at current levels (lines 146,147 and 154-163).* A cut to the church’s contribution to the Anglican Communion Office from the $1.16 million of this triennium to $700,000 (line 193).* Continued commitment of 0.7 percent of the budget’s total expenses to fund work towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals, and continued designation of that money to Episcopal Relief & Development. The percentage amounts to $748,208 (line 243a).* A cut in funding for the church’s Committees, Commission, Agencies and Boards, which study issues canonically mandated to them or referred to them by convention, from the current $1.08 million to $630,449. The new total would come in the form of a block grant to be allocated by Executive Council in consultation with committee chairs and church staff according to the work and schedule of the individual CCAB (line 281).* $200,000 to support conversations about restructuring the church (line 282). This is an example of PB&F allocating money for activities whose enabling resolutions had not yet completed the legislative process when the budget was due. The convention’s committee on structure has recommended Resolution C095s that would have a 24-member task force gather ideas on structural change and hold a meeting of representatives from each diocese to hear what the group will recommend to the next meeting of convention. However, PB&F allocated half the amount C095s requests.* A cut of $487,750 from the current triennium in the money allotted for meetings of Executive Council, which carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). The committee anticipated that council would have to conduct one of its three annual meetings online (line 290).* Restoration of $165,000 for the General Board of Examining Chaplains, which prepares and oversees the evaluation of an annual examination of those seeking ordination as priests (lines 313a-e). Council did not specifically fund the board in its proposed budget. PB&F said that policy about the board “is a matter best left to the normal legislative process” of convention. The committee noted that its predecessors had asked for an evaluation of the board in 2009, “but that request was not funded or adequately communicated.” This time around, “all involved seem much clearer about the need for evaluation, and it is hoped such evaluation can be funded from existing resources or in partnership with other interested parties,” the committee said.* An increased rate for reducing the debt resulting from the renovation of the church center from $7.7 million to $7.9 million (line 329).* A pool of money for staff salary increases and cost of living adjustments of 1 percent, 1.5 percent and 2 percent respectively in the three years of the triennium. Staff costs in the budget also anticipate an eight percent annual increase in health insurance and the committee recommends that the chief operating officer and senior staff review current insurance policy and plans.

Colombia: Episcopal Church marks 50 years

first_imgColombia: Episcopal Church marks 50 years Infrastructure, full-time clergy top priorities for growth, sustainability Submit a Press Release The Episcopal Diocese of Colombia recently met in convention and celebrated 50 years. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Bogotá, Colombia] What began as an English-speaking chapel where British, Canadian and U.S. diplomats and expatriates gathered in the early to mid-20th century when Roman Catholicism was the state religion has become, over the last half century, the Colombian Episcopal Church.“Today we celebrate 50 years of community life … you are the support of this family, the family that is the fruit of the seed planted by those who came before us,” said Diocese of Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque Gomez during his diocesan convention address at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Bogotá in late May.Like the other dioceses of Province IX, Colombia is working toward financial self-sustainability while balancing growth.In 1963, the Diocese of Colombia split from the Diocese of Panama to form its own missionary district. A half century later, the diocese is a nationwide church with 35 parishes and missions, present in urban and rural areas covering 439,000 square miles of mountain, rainforest and tropical plains regions.To sustain and advance its ministry and mission to meet the growing spiritual, social and humanitarian needs in the communities it serves, the church needs permanent infrastructure and more full-time clergy, Duque said later explained in a conversation in his office after the convention.“There’s a need for child-care and development programs and elder-care programs and after-school programs for children of working parents and single mothers … as well as caring for displaced people, and for this we need a space,” said Duque.Twenty of the 35 parishes and missions have church buildings; others meet in house churches. There are six full-time priests out of 36 priests, deacons and lay evangelists. Most clergy are bi-vocational professionals with careers in law, education, business and administration; others are retired police officers and government workers.Colombia is a middle-income country, but 33 percent of its 47.7 million people live at or below the poverty line. It is the second most populous country in South America after Brazil, and the fourth largest geographically.Most Colombians live in urban areas: Bogota, Medellin, Cali, Cartagena. Many have fled violence associated with the country’s ongoing 50-year civil war and narcotics trafficking. The violence displaced 4.7 million people, and close to half a million have become refugees.Diocese of Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque Gomez delivering an address to convention. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSUnder Duque’s leadership, the diocese has developed social programs that include micro-finance, preschools, services for the elderly and various programs for poor and displaced Colombians. These include Trinity Foundation in Cali, which runs a micro-finance program; a feeding program supporting the elderly; and a program that provides services to 70 indigenous children, supported by Episcopal Relief & Development.Other Bogotá-based missions include Holy Spirit Mission, which provides space for a World Health Organization-supported program to empower single mothers and homeless women and help them acquire education and health care. Divine Savior Mission provides shelter and meals to homeless senior citizens and an after-school program in one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods. St. Paul’s Cathedral runs a youth leadership-development program. St. Peter’s Church has a grant-funded evangelism and community-outreach program.The Rev. Ted J. Gaiser, is the diocese’s director of mission development and an Episcopal Church-appointed missionary now in his second year of service, and has been working to promote mission outreach and sustainability throughout the diocese.Gaiser, who has a master’s in business administration and a doctorate degree in sociology with an emphasis in social justice, wrote a project-development and management-training program aimed at equipping parishes with the skills to develop well-organized projects and programs, including low-income housing, church-owned schools, elder housing and employment opportunities for internally displaced people.The training, which uses an Asset Based Community Development Approach to evaluate existing resources, and includes project analysis, funding and budgeting, has been conducted throughout the diocese to help move it toward its 2021 goal of achieving financial self-sustainability.Also, Colforpaz, a nonprofit organization has been founded to support the diocese’s mission and sustainability.The diocese in recent years has established a presence in Cúcuta along the northern border with Venezuela, where refugees fleeing Colombia’s civil war have crossed into Venezuela, and where Venezuelans fleeing violence and social and economic troubles in their own country now cross into Colombia seeking refuge. And in Pasto, a city northeast of the border with Ecuador en route to Túlcan, the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees operates a field office for asylum seekers.“In these two important cities construction is underway on our own temples that would let us develop permanent [social] work and a stable pastoral presence,” said Duque.‘Vocational call’Roman Catholicism was the official state religion until Colombia’s Constitution established protection for religious freedom in 1991. Now, 93 percent of the population is Christian, with more than 80 percent of them identified as Roman Catholics.Most of the priests and deacons active in the diocese attended Roman Catholic seminaries and were priests in the Roman Catholic Church before joining the Episcopal Church, and many see the priesthood as a “vocational call” rather than a career, said Gaiser.An active congregation, including outreach, is a canonical requirement to be priested in the diocese. The “process,” Gaiser explained, works like this: Aspirants, with the support of a priest or a deacon in their area, begin to build a worship community. Ordination to the diaconate and a long period of “Anglicanization” follows before ordination to the priesthood.Anglican-Episcopal formation goes beyond the clergy. In recent years, the diocese has committed “to teach, baptize and nurture new believes,” the second of the Five Marks of Mission, and the Rev. Alberto Pinzón, of St. Paul’s Church in Bogotá, is working to implement a diocesan-wide evangelism program to invite, inspire and transform individuals, and building up parishes.“They [people joining the Episcopal Church] need to understand what it means to be Anglican,” said Duque.Given the country’s geography and the costs associated with meeting, the clergy, laity and diocesan leadership typically meet twice annually. Besides providing a place for elections and budget discussions, the convention provides time for workshops focused on continuing education and leadership development.The most recent diocesan convention included workshops on gender and on the full inclusion of not only LGBT people but also displaced and other marginalized people; church history; and self-sustainability.Bishop Carlos López-Lozano, bishop of the Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church, traveled from Madrid to attend convention. Over two sessions, he gave a history of the church, including the reformed church’s story of sustainability.For the most part, he said, the Episcopal Church in Spain began as an indigenous church and therefore didn’t receive outside support, with the exception of a period following the Spanish Civil War when the church paid its priests salaries with funds from the World Council of Churches.“When it ended, the church needed to reorganize things,” said Lopez. “When you have money, you don’t think about self-sustainability.”It’s important that people in the church understand that the church needs money to carry out its mission, and that in stewardship campaigns everyone be involved, he said. In solidarity, the larger churches help the smaller churches with their mission.“It’s about changing minds about what we are capable of doing,” said Lopez.Duque and the other bishops of Province IX have come to realize that prevailing regional circumstances call for new direction, he said. “In virtue of that, we have decided to adopt an integral sustainable-development strategy in each one of our dioceses.”The Rev. Donald Vinson, canon for mission and transmission in the Diocese of West Virginia, addresses the Diocese of Colombia Convention. Colombia and West Virginia have a longstanding companion relationship. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSThe Episcopal Church historically has supported the Province IX churches through a block-grant program, which provides the dioceses with operating funds amounting to $2.9 million in the current triennium. Colombia receives $127,400 annually toward its $241,250 budget.During a July 2013 meeting of lay and ordained leaders of Province IX and Episcopal Church Center staff, the consensus was that “the current relationship between the dioceses of Province IX and the rest of the Episcopal Church is influenced by the nature of the historical block grants that establish a relationship of dependency. This is not spiritually healthy, either for the ‘dependent’ or the ‘depended upon,’” according to a document that was released following the meeting. The document created by the Mark 2 Mission group was born of a longer conversation that began in earnest in March 2011 with a conference in Tela, Honduras.In February, on the recommendation of the Second Mark of Mission working group (a group convened by the staff of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society), the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council agreed to an 18-year plan for “self-sufficiency” to move to sustainable mission and ministry in Province IX.The other Province IX churches are, in South America, Ecuador Central, Ecuador Litoral, and Venezuela; in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico; and in Central America, Honduras. — Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.  Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Washington, DC Rector Pittsburgh, PA 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 Associate Rector Columbus, GA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Knoxville, TN Press Release Service New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Bath, NC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Tampa, FL This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Submit a Job Listing Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Belleville, IL Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Albany, NY Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Collierville, TN Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Featured Events Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Some young persons may not particularly want to sit down one on one with an authority figure like a priest. Some priests may be a little judgmental which could make a youngster who does not feel too good about himself or herself feel even worse and wonder why did he or she bother to even approach the priest for help in the first place. It is so much better if the youngster can seek help or advice without identifying himself if he chooses to. He has some measure of control in that he can terminate the conversation if he thinks it is not going well, whenever he wants. If the youngster and the priest agree that they need to meet and explore solutions further they can arrange this by mutual agreement. As a priest, I hear confessions regularly but I can remember as a youngster the embarrassing and uncomfortable feeling of having to bare my soul to a complete stranger especially one who is closer to my parents in age. I would never confess to my parents what I was being asked to confess in his presence. Of course the preferred method of communication for kids is the digital method, so why not meet them in their own space? Tags Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Comments (1) Featured Events [Anglican Communion News Service] The Church of England’s Lichfield Diocese has broken new ground by advertising for a lay or ordained diocesan pastor to connect and support people online.According to Bishop of Stafford Geoff Annas, the Diocesan Online Pastor is “a brave new role” with a focus on enabling teenagers and young people to “build up and nurture each other in the Christian faith.”Speaking on the Church of England’s weekly podcast Annas stressed that while it was “not a substitute for face-to-face contact” the role would help the church meet needs that young people had and that weren’t currently being met.“The emphasis is about how [young people] can better join in in their churches, but it’s also about keeping them aware of what’s going on in other churches,” he said.“A lot of young people nowadays don’t see themselves even in denominational terms they see themselves as young Christians and the way they live out their faith is very different from traditional ways. It’s all part of reimagining of what it means to be ‘church’ in the coming years.“I think where we’ve got problems is that young people see church in a totally different way. We’re not going to get them to sign up to endless meetings…the Church of England particularly is at an interesting moment. It’s at a turning point.”Archdeacon of Stoke on Trent Matthew Parker told the Church of England’s Jillian Moody that success in this role “will look like more of our young people feeling that they are involved, connected. Relating not just to one another, not just to the wider church, but ultimately relating to God in a way that feels appropriate to them and speaks to where they are.”The job description states, “To reach new generations we recognise that we must learn to relate more effectively to the world and the experience of young people and young adults. Increasingly, this generation inhabits a virtual environment sustained by an array of social media applications and digital devices.”It cited recent research that found that adults in Britain spend more time in each day using devices than they do sleeping. Those aged 16-24, doing more than one task at a time, squeeze 14 hours and 7 minutes of media activity into each day, in just over 9 hours.The job advert continues, “If Christian mission requires a commitment to going where people are and speaking the language they speak, then we cannot afford not to have a focused and engaged online presence if we wish to reach new generations with the gospel.”The Online Pastor’s work would enable younger people to:* become Christians through hearing the gospel in the language of digital media;* grow in their faith and discipleship if they are already Christians;* connect with other Christians in the diocese both on and offline;* worship regularly and participate in their local church as well as a wider fellowship and lived out faith online;* receive invitations to local Christian worship, events and gatherings appropriate to their age group;* engage online in fellowship and the lived-out faith of transforming communities and practicing generosity;* receive alerts, post and respond to prayer requests, access daily devotional material and discover links to appropriate and helpful online communities and resources;* safely report any concerns they may have to the appropriate person (particularly in respect of safeguarding issues)This is not the first time an Anglican has been appointed exclusively for an online ministry – the Rev. Mark Brown was ordained to a digital ministry by the Anglican Church of Australia more than a decade ago and, among other things, set up an Anglican Cathedral in the online virtual world Second Life.Nevertheless, this is thought to be the first time a Church of England diocese will appoint someone specifically to a ministerial role that puts the digital space, and young people, at its heart.For more information is here.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service] El número de personas que esclaviza a niños y adultos por dinero se multiplica en el mundo, y los traficantes hacen acumulativamente más dinero que la industria petrolera.Esa es el cálculo del arzobispo David Moxon, el representante del arzobispo de Cantórbery ante la Santa Sede y director del Centro Anglicano en Roma, quien habló durante un foro reciente en el Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal en Nueva York.Los traficantes tratan a los que esclavizan “como subhumanos, como ganado, como unidades económicas, gente para quienes la dignidad humana, la libertad humana, la oportunidad humana, el potencial humano no existe porque uno puede hacer muchísimo dinero rápidamente”, afirmó.El foro sobre violencia sexual y trata de personas fue auspiciado por la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana en las Naciones Unidas como un evento paralelo a la 59ª. Sesión de la Comisión de las Naciones Unidas sobre la Condición de la Mujer (UNCSW, por su sigla en inglés), que se reunió del 9 al 20 de marzo. La capilla de Cristo el Señor en el centro denominacional se llenó de público para la presentación de Moxon el 12 de marzo, la primera parte de la cual se dedicó a que los participantes describieran sus esfuerzos por combatir la trata de personas.La trata de personas y la esclavitud están “motivadas por un empeño comercial lucrativo, motivado por la codicia, razón por la cual hay una demanda masiva”, dijo Moxon.Es difícil determinar el número de personas atrapadas en este mercado, dijo él, porque :¿cómo puede uno evaluar algo que está oculto?Cálculos muy debatidos estiman que [la población esclava] oscila entre 25 millones y 40 millones. Moxon cita el cálculo estimativo del Índice Global de la Esclavitud, de 35,8 millones de personas, pero añade que cualquiera que sea el número “es enorme y tiene que frenarse”.Sin embargo, cuando la policía intenta concentrarse en los tratantes, “los índices de procesamiento penal son más bien bajos, porque [los traficantes] se desplazan, se mudan, cambian fronteras, atraviesan países¨, afirmó él. A los traficantes “los ayuda la mafia internacional, por ejemplo, de un modo que elude bastante bien la acción de la policía internacional”.Si bien es importantes rescatar a personas [de las redes] de la trata y de la esclavitud, siguió diciendo Moxon, “no podemos dedicar toda nuestra energía al rescate, sino estaríamos rescatando personas hasta el final de los tiempos”.Él contrarrestó la desolación de este cuadro al describir lo que llamó una nueva estrategia que vincula a líderes empresariales con líderes religiosos más allá de los límites denominacionales para cerrar la llave comercial de la trata de personas y de este modo propiciar la “quiebra de la esclavitud”.Las probabilidades están en contra de la eliminación de la trata de personas y su frecuente corolario de violencia sexual, dijo Moxon, pero debemos intentarlo porque “el mundo no será libre hasta que esas personas sean libres”.Cooperación interreligiosaLa estrategia descrita por Moxon para quebrar el control de los traficantes comenzó hace casi dos años cuando el arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby, y el papa Francisco se reunieron por primera vez. Welby sabía que Francisco había quedado “profundamente conmovido” al amistarse con una sobreviviente de la trata de personas en Argentina. Welby también sabía que, al principio de su papado, Francisco había pedido que se examinara el papel de la Iglesia en la lucha contra la trata de personas y la esclavitud moderna. Por tanto, dijo Moxon, Welby “se sentía confiado” de que el Papa sería receptivo a la sugerencia de que ambas iglesias trataran de colaborar en la lucha contra la trata.El papa Francisco y el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby hallaron un terreno común en el problema de la trata de personas desde la primera vez que se encontraron, dijo el arzobispo David Moxon. Foto de la Red Mundial para la Libertad.El resultado último fue la formación de la Red Mundial para la Libertad, que tiene por objeto erradicar la esclavitud moderna y la trata de personas para 2020. Ese objetivo fue el tema de un acuerdo que se dio a conocer el 17 de marzo de 2014 en el Vaticano.Al mismo tiempo, el filántropo y empresario australiano Andrew Forrest, anglicano, decidió legar la fortuna que hizo en la industria mineral. En medio de ese empeño, su hija le pidió que le prestara atención a la trata de personas. [En consecuencia], él creó la Walk Free Foundation, que busca ponerle fin a la esclavitud moderna. Forrest se acercó a líderes religiosos de todo el mundo para instarles a levantar sus voces contra la trata de personas y la esclavitud moderna y a trabajar juntos para combatirla.Los organizadores dieron un paso aún mayor el 2 de diciembre cuando 12 líderes religiosos —católicos, anglicanos, musulmanes, hindúes, budistas, judíos y ortodoxos— se reunieron en el Vaticano y firmaron la “Declaración Conjunta de Líderes Religiosos contra la Esclavitud Moderna en el Día Mundial por la Abolición de la Esclavitud.“A los ojos de Dios, cada ser humano es una persona libre, sea niño o niña, mujer u hombre, y está destinado a existir para el bien de todos en igualdad y fraternidad”, decía la declaración que llamaba a la esclavitud moderna un “crimen contra la humanidad”. Sus signatarios se comprometieron a “trabajar juntos por la libertad de todos los que han sido víctimas de esclavitud y trata de personas, de manera que su futuro pueda restaurarse”.Lograr tal unanimidad “ha sido difícil, escabroso, turbulento”, señaló Moxon, pero al final “toda la teología…cuajó”. Él resaltó, por ejemplo, que los líderes musulmanes, tanto sunitas como chiitas, firmaron la declaración.La declaración se firmó apenas semanas después de que el Estado Islámico (ES) anunciara que la esclavitud debía ser fundacional para el nuevo califato que [esa organización terrorista] está luchando por crear, dijo Moxon, calificando ese sentimiento de “profundamente repugnante”.El papa Francisco y el arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby, a la derecha en la fila del fondo, se contaron entre los 12 líderes religiosos —católicos, anglicanos, musulmanes, hindúes, budistas, judíos y ortodoxos— que, reunidos en el Vaticano el pasado 2 de diciembre, firmaron la “Declaración Conjunta de Líderes Religiosos contra la Esclavitud Moderna el Día Mundial por la Abolición de la Esclavitud”. Foto de la Red Mundial para la Libertad.La coalición de los líderes religiosos se mantendrá frágil a veces, dijo Moxon, pero los líderes esperan seguir encontrando un terreno común.“Nunca habíamos hecho esto antes —producir un plan estratégico de tipo práctico, con su importante respaldo espiritual y teológico— y eso es bastante complejo”, dijo Moxon a ENS después del foro. “Pero yo creo que la misión debe dinamizar el ecumenismo y la acción interreligiosa más de lo que lo hace. Y eso nos ayuda muchísimo porque si uno sólo discute conceptos y mociones teológicas —habrá infinitos detalles que podría seguir debatiendo durante mucho, mucho tiempo.En cambio, Moxon preguntó, parafraseando una declaración del papa Francisco: “¿Por qué no actuamos como si ya fuéramos uno en presencia de un mal mundial?”Estrategias antiesclavistasEn presencia de ese mal, la Red Mundial para la Libertad se propone actuar en toda una lista de estrategias, comenzando con la que se conoce como auditoría y limpieza de la cadena de suministros. El proceso está concebido para ayudar a las compañías a reducir o eliminar el riesgo de esclavitud moderna que ocurre en sus cadenas de suministros, tanto como un resultado directo o indirecto de sus prácticas de adquisición.O, como Moxon lo puso, capacitarles “hacerse libres de esclavos para bien de sus propias almas, para bien de su país, para bien del mundo y para bien, sobre todo, de las personas que han sido esclavizadas”.Auditar la cadena de suministros es fundamental porque “además de la industria del sexo, la única razón porque la cual existe la esclavitud es porque alguien está pagando por el producto hecho por los esclavos”, dijo Moxon.El arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby, firma la Declaración Conjunta de Líderes Religiosos contra la Esclavitud Moderna el Día Mundial para la Abolición de la Esclavitud durante una reunión que tuvo lugar el pasado 2 de diciembre en el Vaticano, mientras el gran ayatolá Mohammad Taqi Al Modarresi, de Irak, otro de los 12 líderes religiosos que firmaron la declaración, lo observa. Foto de Red Mundial por la Libertad.La Walk Free Foundation ofrece una guía (“Enfrentar la esclavitud moderna en la cadena de suministros”) para las empresas que quieran sumarse a ese empeño. Hewlett Packard, la fabricante norteamericana de equipos electrónicos ya ha llevado cabo esta tarea, según Moxon. Porque los líderes religiosos pueden hablarle a los empresarios acerca de la dignidad de todo ser humano, el arzobispo de Cantórbery auspiciará una reunión de líderes de corporaciones británicas para animarles a utilizar el proceso.En un movimiento afín, la Red Mundial para la Libertad y Walk Free Foundation quieren fomentar programas de microfinanciación a través de los cuales las personas puedan ganar más dinero por su trabajo y de este modo no resultar víctimas de falsas promesas de salarios de parte de personas que han de convertirlas en esclavos.Otra estrategia, cuidar de los sobrevivientes de la trata de personas, se ajusta especialmente a las comunidades de fe, dijo Moxon. Ofrecer apoyo a largo plazo y “genuina amistad restauradora” es esencial, y algo que las iglesias pueden hacer mucho mejor que los gobiernos, señaló él.Las agrupaciones también abogan por reformas legales para institucionalizar las auditorías y limpiezas de la cadena de suministros de manera que las empresas que tal hagan se vean recompensadas. Una ley de este tipo se ha propuesto en el Parlamento del Reino Unido, según informó él. Moxon dijo que algunas compañías desconfían de hacer la auditoría porque temen ser procesadas por lo que ésta descubra.La educación y la toma de conciencia es otra estrategia y la Red Mundial para la Libertad brinda materiales que las comunidades religiosas pueden usar para hacer esa labor entre sí mismas.La Red quiere identificar los 10 países más propensos a la esclavitud y establecer consejos locales para concebir soluciones locales basadas en las costumbres, leyes, cultura y recursos económicos de cada país, así como en las iniciativas que al respecto ya existen en ellos. Forrest, el filántropo australiano, ha donado $25 millones para comenzar ésta y otras tareas, especialmente la estrategia de la microfinanciación, dijo Moxon.Otra estrategia es educar a la gente respecto a la trata de personas. La Red Mundial para la Libertad ofrece recursos que las comunidades de fe pueden usar para llevar a cabo esa tarea entre sí.Conciencia crecienteMoxon describe su propio conciencia creciente del problema. Antes de ir al Centro Anglicano en Roma, Moxon era uno de los arzobispos de la Iglesia Anglicana en Aotearoa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia. Nativo de Nueva Zelanda, Moxon dijo que estaba “sólo vagamente consciente” de la omnipresencia de la trata de personas y de la esclavitud moderna antes de que el arzobispo de Cantórbery le pidiera participar. Dos años de estudiar el problema y de ayudar a formar la Red Mundial para la Libertad han dejado su huella en él.El arzobispo David Moxon preside la eucaristía el 12 de marzo en la capilla de Cristo el Señor del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal. Moxon, representante del arzobispo de Cantórbery ante la Santa Sede y director del Centro Anglicano en Roma, posteriormente dirigió un foro sobre trata de personas y violencia sexual. Asistiéndole en la eucaristía estaban el Rdo. Canónigo James Calloway, secretario general de Colegios y Universidades de la Comunión Anglicana, y Angie Cabanban, asociada del ministerio de diversidad y etnia de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.“Sirvió para abrirme mucho los ojos; de manera bastante extraordinaria” dijo durante una entrevista con ENS.También cambió el modo de mirar a las mujeres en su vida.“La cuestión de la esclavitud me ha hecho hipersensible a cualquier cosa que se parezca a que se espere de alguien que haga demasiado por nada”, afirmó.También aprendió que gran parte del trabajo necesario para eliminar la trata de personas es “peligroso o difícil o políticamente complicado, religiosamente sensible, y uno no ve necesariamente los gloriosos resultados o incluso la trascendencia espiritual”. Pero el trabajo debe hacerse, dijo él.Anteriormente ese mismo día, durante su sermón en una eucaristía en la capilla, Moxon contó la historia del monje que anhelaba encontrarse con Cristo en las oraciones que hacía en su celda; pero que en cambio lo encontró en las personas a las cuales tenía que servir todos los días.La pregunta de “creemos que Cristo está ahí o no es el punto realmente fundamental”, dijo Moxon. “Ustedes lo creen o no, a eso se reduce todo”.Nota de la redactora: El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal puede contemplar [el hacer] una resolución el 21 de marzo para expresar su apoyo a los empeños de colaboración de organismos gubernamentales y no gubernamentales del mundo entero para erradicar la trata de personas, y convocar a la Iglesia Episcopal a actuar al respecto en toda una variedad de formas.– La Rda.

first_img Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Featured Events Rector Collierville, TN [Episcopal News Service] El arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby está esperanzado de que los principales líderes anglicanos reunidos esta semana en Cantórbery, Inglaterra, puedan ser capaces de encontrar una senda hacia la reconciliación en lugar de [terminar en] un cisma sobre profundas diferencias de opinión respecto a los problemas de la sexualidad humana.Hablando en el Programa “Today” de la BBC Radio 4’s antes de la reunión del 11 al 16 de enero, Welby dijo: “Ciertamente quiero la reconciliación. La reconciliación no siempre significa acuerdo; de hecho muy rara vez es tal cosa. Significa encontrar modos de discrepar bien y eso es lo que hemos logrado hacer esta semana”.De los 38 líderes anglicanos que asisten esta semana a la Reunión de los Primados, un puñado de arzobispos africanos ha amenazado con abandonar la reunión a menos que Welby acceda a sus demandas de disciplinar a la Iglesia Episcopal y otras provincias con cuyas acciones discrepan.“No hay nada que yo pueda hacer si hay personas que deciden abandonar el salón”, dijo Welby, “pero queremos permanecer juntos, escucharnos mutuamente en el servicio de Jesucristo y concentrarnos no tan sólo en el tema de la sexualidad, sino también en los enormes problemas que afectan a las personas alrededor del mundo: conflictos armados, persecución, violencia religiosa”.En un esfuerzo por evitar el boicot de los arzobispos conservadores africanos, tal como el que ocurrió en la última Reunión de los Primados en 2011, Welby ha invitado al arzobispo Foley Beach, líder de la Iglesia Anglicana en América del Norte (ACNA, por su sigla en inglés) a reunirse con los primados en una conversación antes de que comience oficialmente la Reunión de los Primados en Cantórbery. La ACNA está compuesta en gran medida por ex episcopales que decidieron separarse de la Iglesia Episcopal. Algunos primados africanos han declarado su afiliación a la ACNA.“La Iglesia es una familia, y uno sigue siendo una familia incluso si toma por distintos caminos”, dijo Welby en la entrevista radial. “Tenemos que resolver cómo coexistimos con eso y cómo servimos fielmente a Dios de manera que mostremos que podemos discrepar profundamente y aun así amarnos y cuidarnos mutuamente.“Un cisma no sería un desastre —Dios es más grande que nuestros fracasos—, pero sería un fracaso”, añadió. “No sería bueno que la Iglesia se mostrara incapaz de darle el ejemplo al mundo de enseñar como podemos amarnos los unos a los otros y aun discrepar profundamente, porque es Jesucristo quien nos congrega, no nuestra propia elección. Esto no es un club formal o un partido político. Esto es algo hecho por Dios”.Michael Curry, el obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal, asiste a su primera Reunión de Primados desde que fuera instalado como obispo presidente y primado en noviembre pasado.Curry y muchos de sus colegas primados han pedido oraciones mientras los líderes se reúnen por primera vez en cinco años.Invito a los episcopales a orar conmigo por esta reunión, en la que Dios estará plenamente presente con nosotros y en la que podemos seguir a nuestro Señor Jesús en los caminos de Su amor y de este modo ser parte de la bendición de Dios para el mundo”, dijo Curry en una declaración el 7 de enero.Luego de su elección como obispo presidente y primado en junio de 2015, Curry dijo que la Comunión Anglicana tiene tanto que ver con las relaciones como con la estructura y la organización. “tenemos algo que hacer. Creo en verdad que tenemos alguna tarea de Jesús que hacer” dijo. “Este mundo clama por nosotros y nos necesita, y la Comunión Anglicana es una manera en que Dios nos usa unidos para hacer realmente de este mundo un mundo mejor”Antes de la Reunión de los Primados, más de 100 líderes ordenados y laicos de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, entre ellos obispos y deanes, publicaron una carta abierta a los arzobispos de Cantórbery y de York llamando a la Iglesia a arrepentirse del trato de “ciudadanos de segunda clase” dado a algunos cristianos por motivo de la sexualidad.Entre los signatarios se encuentra el Muy Rdo. David Ison, deán de la catedral de San Pablo en Londres. “Creo que es imperativo para nosotros recordar que mientras procuramos abordar sincera, amorosa y respetuosamente nuestras diferencias de contexto y de interpretación bíblica, nuestras discusiones son realmente sobre las vidas de hermanas y hermanos que a menudo han sido rechazados y victimizados por causa de su sexualidad”, afirmó. “La Iglesia debe ser el primer lugar al que ellos sientan que pueden acudir para encontrar amor y aceptación en lugar de juicio”.Desde la publicación de la carta la semana pasada y la invitación de los organizadores a que otras personas la firmen, más de 3.200 anglicanos y episcopales lo han hecho.Se ha abierto una página web con materiales concernientes a la reunión e incluirán colectas y peticiones de oración mientras los primados se encuentren reunidos.Los primados son los principales arzobispos y obispos presidentes electos o nombrados para dirigir cada una de las 38 provincias autónomas de la Comunión Anglicana. El arzobispo de Cantórbery los invita a la Reunión de los Primados para consultas sobre asuntos teológicos, sociales e internacionales.La Reunión de los Primados de la Comunión Anglicana es uno de los tres instrumentos de la Comunión, siendo los otros dos la Conferencia de Lambeth [que reúne a todos los obispos de la Comunión] y el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el principal organismo normativo de la Comunión. Al arzobispo de Cantórbery, como primus inter pares, o “primero entre iguales” se le reconoce como el centro de la unidad de la Comunión Anglicana.Cada provincia se relaciona con las otras provincias dentro de la Comunión Anglicana por estar en plena comunión con la Sede de Cantórbery. El arzobispo de Cantórbery convoca la Conferencia de Lambeth, preside la Reunión de los Primados y es el presidente del CCA.En algunas provincias anglicanas al primado se le llama arzobispo o metropolitano, o ambas cosas, mientras en otras se usa el término de obispo presidente, o de primus [otra manera de decir primado] como en Escocia.El arzobispo de Cantórbery también invita a las reuniones de primados a los moderadores que presiden las iglesias ecuménicas unidas del Norte de la India, el Sur de la India y Pakistán.En 1978, el arzobispo Donald Coggan, el 101er. arzobispo de Cantórbery, estableció la Reunión de los Primados como una oportunidad de “meditación pausada, oración y consulta a profundidad”.Los primados se han reunido en Ely, Inglaterra, en 1979; Washington, D.C., en 1971; Limurú, Kenia, en 1983; Toronto, Canadá, en 1986; Chipre en 1989; Newcastle, Irlanda del Norte, en 1991; Ciudad del Cabo, Sudáfrica, en 1993; Windsor, Inglaterra, en 1995; Jerusalén en 1997; Oporto, Portugal, en 2000; Centro de Conferencias de Kanuga, Hendersonville, Carolina del Norte, en 2001; Cantórbery, Inglaterra, en 2002; Gramodo, Brasil, en mayo de 2003; Londres, Inglaterra, en octubre de 2003; Newry, Irlanda del Norte, en febrero de 2005; Dar es-Salam, Tanzania, en febrero de 2007; Alejandría, Egipto, en febrero de 2009 y Dublín, Irlanda, en enero de 2011.Las provincias y primados de la Comunión Anglicana aparecen listados aquí.Visite la página web oficial de los Primados 2016Siga a @Primates2016 en Twitter— Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

La iglesia episcopal de los Santos Apóstoles es hogar de una congregación diversa que incluye una robusta comunidad religiosa hmong. Foto de los Santos Apóstoles.[Episcopal News Service – San Pablo, Minnesota] Si uno entra aquí en la iglesia episcopal de los Santos Apóstoles [Holy Apostles Episcopal Church] un domingo cualquiera encontrará un auténtico crisol. Una diácona hmong en su treintena abrazará a una feligresa blanca octogenaria y jóvenes de muchas razas y edades se sentarán juntos a escuchar la palabra.Esta fusión se hace particularmente evidente en el verano, cuando la congregación celebra la santa eucaristía con una mezcla de inglés y hmong durante su oficio combinado de las 10:00 A.M.Sin embargo, este fusionado cuerpo de Cristo que trabaja para amar y vivir como uno en el mundo, no siempre ha sido tan diverso como lo es ahora.En 2004, la iglesia llevaba varios años de decadencia y se enfrentaba a la realidad de tener que cerrar, dijo la Rda. Letha Wilson-Barnard, vicaria de los Santos Apóstoles. En ese tiempo, Susan Moss, misionera de la diócesis, se enteró por un amigo hmong que un grupo de 75 familias de esta etnia habían dejado la Iglesia Católica Romana y no contaban con un lugar donde adorar. Moss les invitó a visitar los Santos Apóstoles y, en el transcurso de seis meses, las familias acudieron [al templo] y los mayores se reunieron con el obispo y la vicaria para discernir si la iglesia podría convertirse en su nuevo hogar religioso.“Para el Domingo de Pascua de 2005, los bancos estaban llenos y ésta se convirtió en la primera iglesia episcopal de la Comunión Anglicana de mayoría hmong”, dijo Wilson-Barnard. “Le ha traído vida a esta congregación”.Los hmongs llegaron por primera vez a Estados Unidos en los años setenta [del pasado siglo] procedentes de las regiones montañosas del norte de Laos luego de que terminara la guerra de Vietnam. Los aldeanos hmongs ayudaron a la CIA en su lucha contra los norvietnamitas durante la guerra y en lo que se ha llamado una “guerra secreta” en Laos. Después de la guerra fueron perseguidos por su colaboración con las fuerzas de EE.UU. y, al igual que los iraquíes que ayudaron a Estados Unidos durante la guerra de Irak, muchos se convirtieron en refugiados. Para el año 2000, los inmigrantes hmongs en Estados Unidos ascendían a unos 170.000, según datos de la Oficina del Censo, y en Minnesota reside uno de los mayores grupos hmongs del país.Los hmongs de mayor edad que hicieron de los Santos Apóstoles su hogar religioso fueron los refugiados de primera generación; además, existen ejemplos de inmigrantes que revitalizan parroquias y comunidades a través de la Iglesia Episcopal.“Lo hermoso de esta obra es con la frecuencia que nosotros, como norteamericanos, y nuestras congregaciones somos transformados y cambiados radicalmente por nuestra interacción con nuestros vecinos”, dijo Allison Duvall directora del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración para las relaciones y actividades eclesiásticas. El Ministerio Episcopal de Migración es una de las nueve agencias de reasentamiento de refugiados que colaboran con el Departamento de Estado de EE.UU. para reubicar refugiados en toda la nación.“Abundan los ejemplos, pero uno de mis preferidos es el de la iglesia episcopal de San Pedro [St. Peter’s] en Louisville, Kentucky, que ha experimentado una revitalización por acoger en su congregación a refugiados birmanos que eran anglicanos antes de llegar a Estados Unidos”, explicó ella. “De una congregación envejeciente con una asistencia que disminuía, San Pedro está ahora desbordante de vida —familias jóvenes, acólitos jóvenes, todo el ajetreo de una congregación pujante. No sólo eso, sino que ahora los miembros de San Pedro tienen sus corazones y mentes abiertas de una manera relacional y profundamente personal a los esfuerzos y alegrías de la vida de refugiados y nuevos inmigrantes en Estados Unidos”.La iglesia episcopal de los Santos Apóstoles es el hogar de una diversa congregación que incluye una pujante comunidad religiosa hmong; su santuario se ve aquí en una típica celebración dominical durante un oficio hmong. Foto de los Santos Apóstoles.Para Bao Moua, una hmong de segunda generación, la Iglesia Episcopal tenía una idiosincrasia atractiva para los que provenían de la Iglesia Católica Romana porque era bastante semejante al catolicismo, de suerte que ellos se sintieron cómodos con la transición, y los mayores que hablaban inglés tuvieron una pequeña curva de aprendizaje. También les ofrecía un lugar donde los sacerdotes podían casarse y donde las mujeres podían ser ordenadas.El jueves 23 de junio, Moua se convertirá en la primera mujer hmong en ser ordenada sacerdote en la Iglesia Episcopal, junto con tres nuevos diáconos. Al principio, ella estaba dudosa de su llamado, dijo, pero en la medida en que los mayores vieron y alentaron el don que había en ella y se involucró más con el liderazgo de la iglesia, decidió buscar [el ministerio] como un medio de capacitar y alentar a otras personas a discernir su propio llamado, “allanar el camino a otros que vendrán después que yo, hombres y mujeres, jóvenes y viejos”.El Rdo. Toua Vang fue el primero de los feligreses hmongs en ser ordenado. Cuando él regresó a la iglesia, la congregación tuvo que discernir lo que significaba para la iglesia tener este tipo de liderazgo, dijo Moua.Los Santos Apóstoles celebra numerosas fiestas culturales hmongs durante el año, incluida la observancia del Año Nuevo Hmong con trajes típicos. Foto de los Santos Apóstoles.Comenzaron un comité de ministerio compartido porque vieron que los hmongs tenían diferentes necesidades para bodas, funerales, etc. así como la barrera del idioma. Los miembros del comité de ministerio compartido hablaron con el obispo acerca de estas necesidades y de cómo todo el mundo podía usar sus dones y talentos dentro del liderazgo de la iglesia.“Al principio llegaron a inscribirse hasta unas 20 personas”, dijo Moua. “Luego, al cabo de un año, teníamos 14 y esas 14 ya han estado trabajando con nosotros durante varios años”.Es importante tener un liderazgo y un idioma hmong vivos en la iglesia, afirmó Moua.“Es importante que nuestros mayores tengan la posibilidad de oír la Palabra en su propio idioma. Ello fortalece su fe y mantiene nuestra cultura e idioma vivos dentro de la generación más joven. Ha sido un regalo que la Iglesia Episcopal nos permita traer nuestra propia cultura y hacerla suya. Es eficaz porque las personas pueden realmente entenderlo y nos permite ser quienes somos en la fe cristiana”.Al principio, ella dijo que algunos dudaban. Se debatían con [la pregunta] “¿Soy digno [del liderazgo]?” debido a la barrera del idioma o por carecer de la preparación tradicional que la Iglesia exigía.“Pero vimos las posibilidades [que había] en las personas”, añadió ella. “Como hemos estado juntos, nos hemos visto mutuamente los dones. Aun sin la preparación docente, la fe de ellos es firme y están dispuestos a compartirla y a aprender”.Los integrantes del comité del ministerio compartido han estado aprendiendo juntos durante tres años. Moua interpreta para los miembros del comité.“Me siento orgullosa de ver a nuestro grupo crecer en la fe y no tener miedo de hacer más. Ver que todos tenemos dones y que debemos compartirlos, que eso está abierto para todos”, dijo ella.La congregación también trabajó exitosamente, hace años, en traducir el Libro de Oración Común a la lengua hmong.Wilson-Barnard dijo que la congregación atrae tanto a los hmongs como a otros que se sienten entusiasmados por la naturaleza intercultural de la iglesia. Ella comenzó su labor en la iglesia siendo seminarista y se ha quedado durante 10 años.“Creo que hay una verdadera riqueza en compartir la vida juntos: el Cuerpo de Cristo para mí mientras ministro a esta congregación, una suerte de anticipo del cielo, en la contemplación [divina] alrededor del trono con todas las tribus y naciones. Ha sido apasionante”, apuntó.La Rda. Letha Wilson-Barnard, vicaria, preside el bautismo en la iglesia de los Santos Apóstoles. Foto de los Santos Apóstoles. Rector Belleville, IL Rector Tampa, FL Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Submit an Event Listing Por Ashley WrightPosted Jun 22, 2016 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Press Release Service Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Collierville, TN Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Su consejo para otras congregaciones que pueden enfrentarse a semejantes situaciones de decadencia o que tienen grandes grupos de refugiados en sus comunidades es: “conoce a tu comunidad y en verdad trabaja internamente en la hospitalidad y en lo que eso significa. Significa realmente apertura y estar abierto a la posibilidad del cambio y la transformación”.Los Santos Apóstoles colabora estrechamente con su congregación asociada de la localidad, la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Evangelista [St. John the Evangelist Episcopal]. Ambas iglesias han trabajado juntas por casi una década y comparten grupos de jóvenes para la confirmación. Hay también un mercado campesino los domingos en su espacio de estacionamiento que incluye la venta de alimentos y artesanías hmongs.Ellas han colaborado en varias otras formas de ministerio tanto en el ámbito local como internacional.Para San Juan, su labor con los Santos Apóstoles, así como las noticias y acontecimientos actuales, la ha inducido a entrar en un proceso para coauspiciar a una familia refugiada que llega al país en los próximos meses.La discusión más profunda acerca de la posibilidad de coauspiciar a una familia refugiada se produjo el año pasado mientras los ojos, los oídos y los corazones del mundo se volvían hacia Siria, dijo el Rdo. Jered Weber-Johnson. “Muchísimas personas preguntaban lo que la iglesia iba a hacer ya que en ese tiempo estábamos predicando sobre el tema”.“En la medida en que esta interrogante aumentaba, el clero de San Juan se la devolvió a la congregación. ‘Miremos y oremos juntos respecto a lo que podemos hacer’”, agregó Weber-Johnson.Se formó un grupo en el transcurso de seis meses en el que feligreses seriamente interesados en hacer algo se reunían para orar y discernir: ¿qué otra cosa podían hacer además de ser socialmente conscientes, de votar y de concentrarse en la manera en que vivían? San Juan también tiene un grupo de estudio bíblico para sus discusiones al respecto. Juntos, formaron un grupo de discernimiento ad hoc.“Alguien nuevo para la parroquia que había tenido una participación muy activa en el ministerio de los refugiados en otras parroquias estaba dispuesto a conservar este espacio y a escuchar, y a compartir cualesquier recursos que él tuviera”, dijo Weber-Johnson. “Fue muy constante en no dejar que el tema decayera”.Ese miembro de la parroquia era David Borton, quien se puso en contacto con el Consejo de Iglesias de Minnesota para encontrar lo que conllevaría el coauspicio.El Servicio de Refugiados del Consejo de Iglesias de Minnesota es afiliada del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración. Además de trabajar con 30 agencias de reasentamiento en 26 diócesis, proporcionando asistencia directa a los recién llegados, el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración les ofrece a las congregaciones medios de participar en el reasentamiento de refugiados en sus comunidades, también alienta a los episcopales a unirse a la Red Episcopal de Política Pública y aboga por políticas que protejan los derechos de los refugiados y a los solicitantes de asilo.Mediante la colaboración del grupo, se llegó a una propuesta, se calcularon los costos y se decidió que sería una buena opción para la iglesia.“Creamos un grupo multigeneracional para ayudar a que todos entendiéramos lo que realmente significa nuestro llamado a “acoger al extranjero”, afirmó.El grupo —que ahora incluye un maestro de inglés como segundo idioma, un asistente de servicio a refugiados y los que son eficientes con oraciones y asuntos de dinero— se reunieron y seguirán reuniéndose los domingos para ultimar las necesidades prácticas de la familia que ahora llaman “los recién llegados de San Juan”.Tienen una idea general de cuándo puede llegar la familia —en julio—, pero no se ha fijado un día concreto. “Es como si fuéramos a tener un bebé”, bromeó uno de los miembros del grupo de discernimiento de San Juan.Tampoco saben de qué país provendrá la familia, pero Ben Walen, director del Servicio de Refugiados del Consejo de Iglesias de Minnesota, dijo que los grupos que vienen a Minnesota son, en su mayoría, de Somalia y del estado Karen en Myanmar. Puntualizó que las cifras fluctúan, pero el servicio suele reasentar unas 450 personas al año, aunque el año pasado [la cifra] sólo llegó a 400. El Servicio de Refugiados les pide a las iglesias un compromiso de cuatro meses para ayudar con necesidades tales como muebles, transporte, comida, etc.“Esto con frecuencia conlleva amistarse con la familia, llevarla a eventos locales o mostrarle la comunidad. Es ir más allá de un mero control de caso, para que esas familias refugiadas perciban una conexión que va más allá, la cual en verdad sólo las iglesias pueden brindar a largo plazo. Acelerar el ingreso de esa familia en la vida norteamericana resulta de gran valor. También, para la iglesia misma, ayuda a las personas a aprender de su comunidad y de los refugiados, de manera que no se sientan como ‘el otro’”.El coauspicio es uno de los muchos modelos que siguen las iglesias y los individuos que pueden participar en la acogida a refugiados, dijo Duvall, que dirige las relaciones y actividades eclesiásticas del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración.“La belleza del modelo es que realmente te presenta a tus nuevos vecinos. No siempre resulta fácil, pero Jesús no nos llama a la facilidad y la comodidad. Nos llama al hermoso —y a veces doloroso— caos de la vida”, afirmó ella.“El coauspicio introduce las familias recién llegadas a sus primeros amigos norteamericanos, lo cual les proporciona alguna sensación de tranquilidad y de confort, al saber que no están solos, que no están aislados ni alienados de su nueva comunidad. Si bien el coauspicio sólo dura unos pocos meses del tiempo de una familia en Estados Unidos, concluye con una maravillosa celebración, las amistades que se forman pueden durar una vida. En este tiempo, cuando hay tanta desinformación, ansiedad y temor en nuestro país de las personas que no conocemos o no entendemos, nuestro llamado a acoger al forastero y a llegar a conocer a nuestros prójimos nunca ha sido más importante”.Para Weber-Johnson, participar en el trabajo con los refugiados es una parte vital de la iglesia local y de San Juan [en particular].“No es porque creamos que somos la solución al problema, porque hay ministerios y agencias gubernamentales más preparadas que están realizando la tarea de resolver problemas”, afirmó. “Nos dedicamos directamente al discipulado personal, vinculando nuestras vidas con los marginales… aprendiendo de sus historias, palpando un poquito su dolor, creyendo que compartimos una [misma] humanidad y una misma flaqueza, y eso es importante en el discipulado y la formación cristianos”.– Ashley Wright es una escritora independiente radicada en Minneapolis.

Growing vegetables at the nexus of resources and need

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA Youth Minister Lorton, VA The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Editor’s note: This is the latest in a continuing series about Episcopal Church congregations that are involved in community agriculture. Other stories in the series can be found here.[Episcopal News Service – Kent, Washington] A grant from the United Thank Offering has provided financial fertilizer for St. James Episcopal Church’s plan to expand its community agriculture ministry.The $12,500 grant was one of more than $1 million that UTO awarded in 36 grants earlier this year, all aimed at helping ministries that support the last of the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission: To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.The grant will help St. James create a community program to connect at-risk families and children with what its application calls the “spiritual, nutritional and creative enrichment of learning to garden and compost in their homes” and community. The program, “Growing Grace: Sustaining a Community through God’s Creation,” will connect the parish and the Food and Faith program of Seattle Tilth with families in need in Kent’s East Hill neighborhood, including students and their families at the Title One-designated Kent Hill Elementary School just up the road from the church.The Rev. Elias Mburu holds a basket of vegetables during a late July Mass on the Grass at St. James Episcopal Church in Kent, Washington. St. James’ garden recently received a grant from the United Thank Offering to expand its garden-based outreach ministry. Photo: Brian Sellers-Petersen via FacebookSt. James’ outreach center last year served 1,722 guests with food, clothing and mini-grants. More than half of those guests (935) were women, 652 were children and teens, and 1,320 were living below the poverty line, according the parish’s UTO grant application.Kent, once a farming area, is now part of suburban Seattle. St. James sits on 5 acres of rich soil near a low-income area in the East Hill neighborhood, thus putting it, according to its application, “at the nexus of both natural resources and social need” with room to grow its ministry.Outreach center director Dallas Shannon “has been so faithful in the (gardening) ministry and has been growing it little by little, and more and more people have gotten invested in it,” the Rev. Joyce Parry-Moore, who became rector of St. James in December, said recently.“With God’s help and with help from UTO, we’re going to grow the garden into a really thriving part of the community,” Parry-Moore said of the garden that is now planted on a strip of land running along the church’s driveway. “We’re going to be developing it more into a teaching garden in addition to its being a sharing garden.”The Growing Grace project will grow awareness both in the neighborhood and in the parish of the importance of sustainable living and environmental stewardship, St. James’ application said.The garden at St. James will be expanded as it becomes the center of “Growing Grace: Sustaining a Community through God’s Creation,” a project supported in part by a recent United Thank Offering grant. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceParticipants will learn about gardening, composting, sustainable living skills and healthy nutritional choices. The expanded garden will provide fresh produce, with any extra sold at a farm stand to be built with grant money. Revenue from the sales will help to sustain the project. The grant will also pay for the construction of a garden and a farm stand, as well as composting equipment, a garden internship and an outreach and arts educator, according to UTO’s summary of the award.Diocese of Olympia Bishop Greg Rickel said on the parish’s UTO grant application in March that Growing Grace uses St. James’ assets in an innovative way that “brings earth and people together in a way that is long-term … and not just a quick fix.”Parry-Moore said she foresees more garden space in what she laughing called “the back 40” behind the church building. “You can produce quite a lot of food on a half-acre,” she said.She also thinks that these days “churches occupy a really unique space in the community” as government at all levels cut social services. Churches are safe spaces where people can gather and be nourished spiritually and physically, she said.“People come to us who are living in poverty, people who are experiencing homelessness, people who are experiencing mental health crises,” Parry-Moore said. “We have an opportunity to nourish them and to build bridges for learning.”Learning to grow some of their own food can be empowering and “and then they can make the next step and the next step.”– The Rev.

‘Activen’ a los ciudadanos para reclamar derechos humanos y gobiernos…

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA Por Robert LowesPosted Oct 15, 2018 Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Bath, NC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Submit a Press Release Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Noah Bullock, a la derecha, director ejecutivo de Cristosal, se dirige al publico en la Universidad de San Luis, Misurí, sobre el tema de los refugiados y los derechos humanos. Lo escuchan David Morales, al centro, director de litigios estratégicos de Cristosal, y el Rdo. Mike Angell, rector de la iglesia episcopal de la Santa Comunión en University City, Misurí. Foto de Sid Hastings/WUSTI (las fotos se han reimpreso con permiso).[Episcopal News Service – St. Louis] Un grupo de derechos humanos en El Salvador fundado por clérigos episcopales ha recurrido a los tribunales para obligar al gobierno del país a vivir a la altura de su responsabilidad de proteger a centenares de miles de ciudadanos desplazados internamente por la violencia desenfrenada, delincuencial y de otro tipo.Y cuando esos refugiados de la violencia vienen a Estados Unidos, este país tiene también una responsabilidad de brindarles un asilo seguro, dijo Noah Bullock, el director ejecutivo de Cristosal, el 8 de octubre en la Universidad de Washington en San Luis, en un simposio sobre una respuesta a la inmigración y a la violencia desde la perspectiva de la fe.“A ninguna persona puede negársele un lugar en el planeta Tierra donde pueda ser libre de persecución”, dijo Bullock, al hablar en el  Centro sobre Religión y Política John C. Danforth , que lleva el nombre del senador John Danforth, republicano de Misurí y sacerdote episcopal.Contrario a la opinión popular, dijo Bullock, el típico inmigrante que cruza la frontera sur de Estados Unidos ya no es un mexicano en busca de trabajo, sino alguien proveniente de los países del [llamado]“Triángulo Norte” [de América Central] , El Salvador, Honduras y Guatemala, que huye de la violencia de las pandillas. Cristosal, que tiene oficinas en los tres países, dirige centros de acogida en ellos para la protección de los desplazados. Sin embargo, la solución definitiva no consiste en que agrupaciones  privadas reemplacen al gobierno en ese papel protector, dijo Bullock. Más bien, instituciones como Cristosal logran reformas estructurales a largo plazo “motivando” a las víctimas a reclamar sus derechos, y al estado a cumplir con sus deberes. La Convención de Naciones Unidas sobre los refugiados de 1951, dijo Bullock, enuncia este deber para cualquier país que reciba a personas que huyan de la persecución.Bullock describió una ejecución exitosa de su estrategia de activación. Cristosal demandó al gobierno de El Salvador en nombre de seis familias obligadas a abandonar sus hogares debido a la violencia de las pandillas, arguyendo que un gobierno indiferente había violado sus derechos constitucionales. En julio, el Tribunal Supremo del país falló a favor de las familias, ordenándole al gobierno que reconociera el problema del desplazamiento forzoso después de haberlo desmentido durante años, que impidiera que sucediera y que ayudara a las víctimas.David Morales, que dirige el equipo de litigio estratégico de Cristosal, le contó a los 75 asistentes en la Universidad de Washington de otro intento de exigir responsabilidades a los poderosos de El Salvador a través de los tribunales. Cristosal está acusando privadamente a los perpetradores de la masacre de El Mozote, en la cual soldados del gobierno adiestrados por EE.UU. mataron a más de 1.000 civiles —más de la mitad de ellos niños— en 1981. Morales comenzó a investigar la masacre durante el conflicto cuando trabajaba en la oficina de derechos humanos de la arquidiócesis católica de San Salvador, la capital de la nación. (Morales también buscó justicia para el asesinato del arzobispo Oscar Romero en 1980, un defensor de los pobres que  será canonizado como santo católico el 14 de octubre).El caso de El Mozote se paralizó cuando la guerra civil terminó en 1992 con un acuerdo de amnistía que protegió de enjuiciamiento a los criminales de guerra. Sin embargo, en 2016, el Tribunal Supremo del país anuló la amnistía como inconstitucional. Ese fallo le permitió a Morales retomar [el caso] donde lo había dejado años antes.Morales dijo que el uso de violencia flagrante contra los civiles durante la guerra ha persistido en el presente en que la policía y el ejército salvadoreño asumen un criterio de “puño de hierro” hacia la violencia pandilleril “sin invertir en políticas para la prevención de delitos”. En el proceso, los jóvenes de quienes meramente se sospecha que pertenecen a pandillas enfrentan prisión, tortura y ejecución extrajudicial, dijo él.Bullock añadió que es importante enjuiciar crímenes de guerra de hace décadas porque ¨cuando no hay verdad, cuando no hay justicia,  hay una continuación de la norma”.“Creemos que podemos impugnar la premisa de impunidad, la premisa de que el poderoso puede hacer lo que quiera del débil sin consecuencias”, dijo Bullock acerca del caso judicial. “Es algo que buscamos eliminar”En lugar de instar a Estados Unidos a proteger a refugiados del Triángulo Norte, Bullock y Morales no abordaron las controversiales políticas migratorias de EE.UU. sobre separación de familias, estatus de protección temporal o Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia [DACA]. Bullock abordó de manera más amplia la importancia de Estados Unidos, no obstante imperfecta, en la salvaguarda de los derechos humanos.“Significa mucho para el mundo cuando Estados Unidos dice que los derechos humanos son importantes”, dijo Bullock. Hay una palanca, entonces, para organizaciones como la nuestra para abogar”.“Pero cuando Estados Unidos renuncia a su papel de liderazgo, hay menos presión para promover esos cambios”, dijo él. Advirtió de un resurgimiento del autoritarismo a través del planeta e “incluso en nuestro propio país”, que envalentona a los violadores de los derechos humanos. Sirva de ejemplo: “En Nicaragua, el régimen ha matado a más de 400 personas que protestaban en los últimos meses y expulsaron del país al Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Derechos Humanos sin importarles ninguna repercusión [internacional]”, afirmó.Bullock también impugnó la caracterización que hizo el presidente Donald Trump de El Salvador y otras naciones en desarrollo como “agujeros de mierda”, diciendo que el Presidente ignora las políticas de EE.UU. que han configurado a esos países para lo peor a lo largo de los años. Por ejemplo, las balas usadas por los soldados del gobierno en la masacre de El Mozote se fabricaron en una planta de municiones de Independence, Misurí, dijo Bullock.“No podemos vernos al margen de las condiciones que existen allí”, afirmó.Un panel de tres activistas religiosos de San Luis que participaron en el simposio relacionaron la obra de Cristosal en América Central a sus propias  misiones. “La fe es personal, pero no privada —la fe tiene que ser pública”, dijo el Rdo. Travis Winckler, pastor de la segunda Iglesia Presbiteriana. Su congregación, dijo Winckler, está intentando hacer realidad esas palabras salvando el abismo entre un barrio predominantemente afroamericano que queda justo al norte [y] que ha experimentado “el residuo histórico del racismo” y un barrio más próspero e integrado que está al lado.Para la Rda. Dietra Wise-Baker, que estuvo activa en las protestas en Ferguson, Misurí, luego de la muerte a tiros por la policía de Michael Brown, el “puño de hierro” que blandiera el ejército y la policía salvadoreña “suenan como la misma historia, la misma cantinela, que tuvo lugar aquí, con la policía en atuendo antimotines”.“¿Cómo entenderán que están a nuestro servicio?”, dijo Wise-Baker. “Hay mucho en común entre nuestro pueblo y el pueblo de El Salvador”. Ella añadió que anteriormente no había visto la opresión de los afroamericanos a través de una lente de derechos humanos.Wise-Baker, organizadora comunitaria con una agrupación llamada Congregaciones Metropolitanas Unidas, está de acuerdo con Cristosal en lo que respecta al uso del sistema judicial. En agosto, su agrupación presentó en un tribunal federal una demanda legal contra un distrito escolar local —junto con agencias educativas de Misurí— por supuestamente brindarles educación de calidad inferior a niños indigentes, en violación de estatutos federales. “Esta es una manera de intentar que el estado asuma su responsabilidad”, dijo ella.Los panelistas también comentaron sobre las falsas caracterizaciones o narrativas repetidas sobre las personas privadas de derechos humanos, tales como el concepto erróneo de que los inmigrantes indocumentados que entran por la frontera sur son en su mayoría buscadores de empleo o, como Trump ha dicho, “delincuentes y violadores”.“En verdad no me gustaría  repetir lo que se dice contra nosotros”, dijo la majarat Rori Picker Neiss, directora ejecutiva del Consejo de Relaciones de la Comunidad Judía de San Luis.Neiss dijo que una narrativa falsa  sostenía el criterio común de que los posibles inmigrantes  debían venir aquí legalmente como los recién llegados de generaciones anteriores.“Tenemos historias de judíos que entraron ilegalmente en el país”, dijo ella. “En mi infancia, muchos de los relatos que oímos eran de personas que heroicamente falsificaron documentos, robaron documentos, y todo lo que necesitaron hacer para sobrevivir”.– Robert Lowes, periodista independiente y poeta, es miembro de la iglesia episcopal de la Santa Comunión [Holy Communion] en University City, Misurí, un suburbio de San Luis.

However, the diocese has since learned that its data was incomplete, making that figure incorrect. After addressing the error, the diocese reported that its average Sunday attendance increased by three people.With every release of parochial report data – the statistics on attendance, membership and finances that every parish in The Episcopal Church must submit yearly – a picture of the denomination’s future comes gradually into focus. It’s not a holistic depiction of the church’s health or success, and it comes with many caveats – it’s difficult to infer much from one set of data, and some statistics conflict with each other. But the release of the 2019 data makes the picture clearer than ever.“The overall picture is dire – not one of decline as much as demise within the next generation unless trends change significantly,” said the Rev. Dwight Zscheile, an expert in denominational decline and renewal. An Episcopal priest, Zscheile is vice president of innovation and associate professor of congregational mission and leadership at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota.“At this rate, there will be no one in worship by around 2050 in the entire denomination,” Zscheile told Episcopal News Service.The decline has been observed for many years. The Episcopal Church has seen declining membership, to varying degrees, since the 1960s, when it counted 3.4 million members. As of 2019, it had about 1.8 million. Membership is down 17.4% over the last 10 years.Click the image above to explore the parochial report data for churches in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.After some fluctuation – including a period of stagnation and minor growth in the early 2000s – the statistics seem to have settled into a trajectory of steady, gradual decline.“The trends are continuing,” said the Rev. Tom Ferguson, rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Sandwich, Massachusetts, who has blogged extensively about the church’s decline. “It does seem, at least from this data, to maybe have slowed down a bit, but we have no idea whether that’s a blip or whether that’s a trend.”Across the church, the declines in average Sunday worship attendance have slowed slightly over the past few years, but a decline is still a decline, Zscheile says.“This most recent report shows a slight moderation of the trend of decline in the past year, but overall the trajectory is clear,” he told ENS. “The Episcopal Church has lost a quarter of its worship attendees over the past decade.”Across the church, year over year, the decline in active members was essentially unchanged at 2.29%. However, Sunday attendance did show some signs of slight improvement. Sunday attendance fell 2.55% from 2018 to 2019, compared to 4.5% from 2017 to 2018. And the percentage of churches that saw an increase in Sunday attendance year over year shot up from 24% to 32%, while the share of churches that had a decrease fell from 53% to 49%.However, there are also signs of a trend toward disparity in the church when it comes to attendance, with more churches at either end of the spectrum and fewer in the middle. In 2018, 14% of churches saw at least 10% growth in Sunday attendance over the preceding five years, while 59% had lost at least 10%. For 2019, that gap widened to 15% versus 61%.“It would be my hunch that the healthier churches are getting healthier and the unhealthier churches are getting unhealthier,” Ferguson said.Declines continue to be strongest in the Northeast and Upper Midwest. The worst declines in active baptized members came from Wisconsin, where the small dioceses of Eau Claire and Fond du Lac lost 27% and 18.4% of their members, respectively.Ferguson said those could be symptoms of larger demographic and social trends in the U.S.“I think in the Northeast, it’s largely secularization, whereas I think in the Upper Midwest, it’s part of that population flight,” he said. “It’s really hard. The Upper Midwest is having a rough time demographically.”Declines tend to be slower in the South and West, mirroring population trends, and some dioceses there saw minor growth. Dioceses outside the U.S. vary dramatically. Colombia, for example, showed the strongest growth in attendance (36.1%) and membership (14.4%) of any diocese by far, while Honduras is declining sharply.The one bright spot in the data is the continued increase in pledge income. Despite declining membership and attendance, average pledges and total pledge and plate income were up; after a small drop from 2017 to 2018, total pledge and plate income increased 1.7% from 2018 to 2019, though that was slightly less than the rate of inflation.However, even that presents a problem going forward, according to Zscheile.“The fact that fewer people are giving more money is not a sustainable trend over the long term,” he said.2019 will now be the last year of this particular iteration of the parochial report, the oldest continuous gathering of data by The Episcopal Church. With some adjustments in methodology and definitions, the report has measured membership since 1880 and Sunday attendance since 1991. Even before COVID-19, efforts were underway to redesign the parochial report, and the onset of the pandemic made that even more urgent. For 2020, parochial reports will only measure Sunday attendance from Jan. 1 to March 1 and include new narrative questions to help track “opportunities, innovations and challenges.” After 2020, the new permanent parochial report format may include additions or changes.Church leaders have said that including narrative sections allows parishes to describe the less quantifiable ways in which they are serving God and their communities, and that membership and attendance numbers alone don’t paint a complete picture of the church.“Churches are doing amazing stuff and facing some really incredible challenges,” the Rev. Chris Rankin-Williams, chair of the House of Deputies committee that has been working on revisions to the parochial report, told Executive Council on Oct. 10. “As a rector, my concern is not primarily with a report that tells me what happened but is something that the leaders of my church can use to make decisions for the future.”Ferguson says that although numbers like Sunday attendance don’t tell us everything, they are important for assessing the reality of the church’s situation. He hopes that future reports don’t brush that aside.“My real fear is, I don’t want a tool that just normalizes decline – which, frankly, I just see everywhere, this normalization of decline,” he told ENS.“If you have tons of folks coming to your free laundry, that’s great. … But if you’re still losing 25% of your congregation, well, then in a few years, you’re just going to be a laundromat.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Episcopal Church issues statement on Biden administration’s refugee resettlement policy

first_img Editor’s note: After this church statement was released, the Biden administration backtracked and said it would raise the refugee cap next month, without specifying a new number.[Episcopal Migration Ministries] Today (April 16) the Biden administration announced it would not increase the refugee cap for Fiscal Year 2021 from a historic low of 15,000 refugees to 62,500. Given that President Biden campaigned on increasing the refugee cap in FY2021 and took the necessary steps to make these changes in February, we express disappointment with the administration’s decision to not follow through with these steps. The Episcopal Church has called on the United States and other wealthy nations to “contribute to resettlement, establish and maintain safe and orderly humanitarian protection for refugees, internally displaced persons, and other migrants seeking long-term solutions and safety.” While we acknowledge that the administration made the right decision to commit to resettling 15,000 refugees by eliminating stringent requirements for the allocation of refugee slots set by the Trump administration, its final decision does not align with the Church’s commitment to refugees worldwide.“Today’s decision left us both surprised and profoundly disappointed with the administration’s commitment to protecting vulnerable migrants worldwide,” said The Rev. Dr. C.K. Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond The Episcopal Church, “it will leave many refugees – including many who have gone through the stringent screening and vetting process – in vulnerable conditions.” Despite this setback, the Church remains committed to ensuring that the administration fulfills its promise to resettle 125,000 refugees in FY2022. “Members of the Episcopal Church will participate in Refugee Council USA’s Virtual Advocacy Days next week, giving them an opportunity to ask their members of Congress to provide the administration with the funding to meet these goals,” said Rebecca Blachly, director of the office of government relations for The Episcopal Church. In addition to these efforts, the Church will continue to work through its coalition partners to ensure that the United States continues to welcome the stranger, especially the most vulnerable ones facing dire conditions overseas.

Remembering Robert F. Kennedy…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter  Note – On June 5th, 1968, presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was fatally shot at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, shortly after winning the California presidential primaries in the 1968 election. He died the next day while hospitalized. Sirhan Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian/Jordanian immigrant, was convicted of Kennedy’s murder and sentenced to death in 1969, although his sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1972.Robert F.

Please enter your email address here  Robert F Kennedy is one of my American political heroes by virtue of his focus on people and his vision for the future. Kennedy spoke out for racial and economic justice, for peace in place of a senseless war, and for social change. He was an energizing source for the youngest generation of voters in America.After winning the California presidential primary, he was shot by Sirhan B. Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian, in retaliation for Kennedy’s ongoing support for Israel. It was the first anniversary of Israel’s decisive victory in the Six-Day War.Bobby’s brother, Ted, eulogized him with these words: “The future does not belong to those who are content with today, apathetic toward common problems and their fellow man alike, timid and fearful in the face of new ideas and bold projects. Rather it will belong to those who can blend vision, reason, and courage in a personal commitment to the ideals and great enterprises of American Society.”Kennedy concluded with this quote:“Some people see things as they are and ask “Why?” I dream things that never were and ask, Why not?” Mama Mia Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 June 12, 2017 at 1:57 pm Tragic and very sad. The Kennedy family has so much tragedy in their family’s history. I always wanted JFK Jr. to be a part of the national political scene, but it was not destiny for him, as he was killed piloting a small plane to a wedding. I think I will always remember him forever saluting his father’s casket at his father’s funeral procession as a tiny toddler. Robert F. Kennedy had everything going for him too, but it was not intended to be. I also always wanted JFK Jr. to be matched up with Princess Diana, after her divorce from Prince Charles, but I am not sure if John John was married at that time already or not, but I think John John and Diana would have been an hot item together, and would have had a lot of fun dating. I guess it was not their destiny in life. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply 1 COMMENT Please enter your comment! Shabbat Shalom! Rick Sherwin is the Rabbi at Congregation Beth Am in Longwood.

Is Sam Ruth running for office in 2018?

first_img 1 COMMENT The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter A fiery weekend post on Facebook is a reminder of the former City Commissioner’s full-throated, candid campaign style of 2016Sam Ruth is a fighter. His many years of coaching and playing sports gave him a competitor’s heart. He speaks in a booming voice with a plainspoken manner and an outspoken attitude.Ruth won the City Commission Seat#3 special election in 2012 and was a City Commissioner for two years before losing to Pastor Doug Bankson nearly one year ago in the 2016 Apopka municipal election.The loss, however, did nothing to dampen his passion for Apopka. 11 months after losing in a runoff, Ruth took to Facebook to write a scathing post on the state of the local news media, fake news, social media trolls, and the 2018 Apopka Mayoral election.On Friday evening, Ruth posted this comment on his “Sam Ruth for Apopka” Facebook page:Is Sam Ruth running for office in 2018?“I’ve been asked by many people in the community for my thoughts on the upcoming Apopka’s Mayor’s race. I have no hesitations about making my thoughts known.It is disappointing that our local news media outlets continue to report “fake” news just to push their own agenda. The current city administration continues to clean up issues and problems they inherited. And to make things worse our own media here in Apopka would rather report negative untruths as well as out and out lies rather than report the truth. Remember that I have been a first-hand witness to not only the negative things that went on before this current administration but the positive changes that have begun to take place since this administration took office just three short years ago.I’m here to inform residents to not fall into the same “rut” we were in. Don’t fall for the lies, the behind the door secret meetings that once was normal in our government. Don’t fall for lies that the profiteers, opportunists and social media trolls are handing out. Don’t fall for the community lectures by the very people that help to create the problems that we are fighting to combat today.Just a short three years ago, the citizens of Apopka chose a new path. Let’s not go back. After a monumental election that “some” would like us to believe divided this city, “some” wish to bring back the wolves in their freshly spun sheep’s clothing.To ignore the last 18-plus years, where some of the most hateful and despicable people ran this community, would be a betrayal to our future.To watch Mr. Nelson surround himself with these people is sickening. The current administration has brought substantial, real, change to this community and set a new vision at great expense to their personal lives. I’ve had trouble myself with that. This makes me question the real reason behind Mr. Nelson’s motives to run. Is he a good man or is he just the newest person to carry the water. I’m not ignorant to the politics here in Apopka. I see many of the same profiteers, who have long plagued Apopka, showing up in the opening days of a long race for Mayor. Just my thoughts!”The post received 33 comments (the vast majority of them positive), 31 likes and the thread was active for approximately 72 hours. If it is an unconventional beginning to a campaign for elected office, it cannot be seen as ineffective.The Apopka Voice asked Sam Ruth (inside his Facebook post) to specify which local media outlets he was referring to, but did not receive a response. Earlier in the week, he did answer a question from The Apopka Voice about a possible run for Seat #1 in 2018, and his reply did nothing to take the possibility off the table.“2018 is a long time and a lot can happen,” he said. “I’ve been asked from people if I’m going to run and my answer is, we will see what the future brings. If it’s good for Apopka, it’s good for me.” TAGSSam Ruth Previous articlePaging all voters: The election is callingNext articleFisher Plantation Annexation Update Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR You have entered an incorrect email address!

Social media companies should ditch clickbait, and compete over trustworthiness

Malicious users have exploited these forums for free speech in ways that weaken shared norms of civility, trust and openness. This includes not just bullying and shaming of individuals, but also dealing significant damage to society as a whole.Americans – and people around the world – will spend much of 2018 discussing how to handle the problem of Facebook, Twitter, Google and their ilk reaping massive profits while threatening democracy and undermining trust in public discourse. As scholars of public accountability and digital media systems, we suggest these companies could find a new way to compete that promotes trust and accuracy, bringing both private profits and public benefits.Social media’s original sinMany problems have arisen because of how social media companies began, and how their power has grown in society. Like most Silicon Valley startups, Google, Facebook and Twitter were incubated in a libertarian, free market environment. These conditions reward people and companies who best provide powerful and convenient ways for people around the world to connect. Yet, they are engineered for the benefit of their private stockholders, not their public stakeholders.From Google’s search algorithm to Facebook’s news feed algorithm, the processes that shape our online experience are not only complex and secretive, they are intentionally opaque. That is, in fact, their primary business model.Think about it: If everyone knew exactly how Google’s algorithms worked, then unscrupulous websites could hack their way to the top of search listings, rather than earning a high ranking by improving their products and services – or by paying Google for their ads to appear alongside search results. Similarly, if Facebook revealed the method by which it selects items to appear on users’ news feeds, brands and content providers would no longer need to pay the company tens of billions of dollars per year to reach their own customers on the platform.These companies have become massive, with billions of users spending hours a day on their systems. Business is booming – but their lack of transparency and accountability is increasingly understood as a threat to civil society.Polluting the public sphereThe erosion of civility, trust, and respect for truth in U.S. society is what economists call a “negative externality.” That is a cost of a product or service that is paid by society at large, rather than the company that supplies it or the customer who buys it. A common example is industrial pollution, when manufacturing companies don’t pay the costs of health and environmental problems that their plants’ pollution causes.Social media companies earn extraordinary profits by collecting personal information and selling ads targeted with algorithms. This has allowed the rise of new kinds of social pollution: fake news, purposely divisive messages distributed by fake identities – even the creation of real-world political events based on these false and anti-social messages.Just as society expects oil companies to take moral and legal responsibility for environmental pollution if they spill in the oceans and aquifers, we believe social media companies must help fix and fight the social pollution that their platforms have enabled.Accountability and transparency are keyIn our view, social media companies need to move beyond their “free market” foundations. Like any other set of institutions essential to our social infrastructures and economies, they should develop methods to provide the transparency and public accountability necessary to address the social ills their platforms have enabled.Transparency is the best way to drive out hate speech and fake news. Without it, customers won’t have confidence in the quality of the information they receive or the goodwill of information providers. Social media companies need to be more responsive to the needs of society as a whole, and accept responsibility for monitoring the integrity of their own platforms. They must be held publicly accountable for their platforms’ capacity to be used in ways that undermine our civil society and political institutions.This is not a simple proposition, nor a change that social media platforms can make with a mere flip of a switch. But in our view, it’s necessary.Facebook has begun this process, allowing users to identify all ads a particular page buys across the site, regardless of how the ads were micro-targeted. Twitter has taken similar steps. But these are only initial efforts in what should be a much longer process.A new business opportunityIf these companies don’t change, the very societies that provide their economic lifeblood will diminish and fail. Reform is in their own interest – and everyone else’s too.In the short term, social media companies should make their algorithms, and the data they analyze, more transparent to the public. One possibility could be developing centralized websites where people can check the sources of content and funding for advertisements. A promising approach, currently underway at some companies, involves adapting algorithms to reduce the prominence of fake news posts in users’ feeds. Yet, despite their benefits, these initiatives don’t fix the contradiction at the heart of social media: Their obscurity-based business models conflict directly with their increasingly central role as platforms for public discourse and the democratic process.In the longer term, major internet companies will need to rethink their strategies entirely. This means developing business models that privilege transparency over obscurity, accessibility over secrecy, and accountability over accounting. Though this is a tall order, we propose that social media enterprises could pivot and expand into the business of verification and certification.What does this mean, exactly?

Your November resolution: Quit smoking for the Great American Smokeout

first_img From the Florida Department of Health Orange County  The Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) encourages Floridians to use Tobacco Free Florida’s free tools and services to make a plan to quit smoking for the American Cancer Society’s 44th annual Great American Smokeout on Thursday, November 21.Tobacco Free Florida aims to educate Floridians on the various free quit resources available in the state and support them through the process – on the Great American Smokeout and year-round.“As members of Orange County communities, we are all responsible for creating environments that promote health and well-being for us all,” said Dr. Tralonda Triplett, Community Health Director. “The Great American Smoke Out (GASO) is an excellent opportunity to connect, inform, assist and encourage individuals to initiate plans to stop smoking. What is certain is there is no change that begins without a solid plan. Active support of GASO by employers improves the health status of workforces now and in the future, and contributes to organizational strength and sustainability.  The Florida Department of Health in Orange County and Tobacco Free Florida program congratulates and applauds all allies in this effort to make Florida the healthiest state in the nation.”Orange County employers such as Disney, Universal Studios, Hyatt Regency Orlando, University of Central Florida, Full Sail University, Rollins College and Marriot Grande Vista are actively participating in collaboration with DOH-Orange Tobacco Free Florida to encourage smokers to quit tobacco for one day. “QUIT YOUR WAY” services have been offered to their employers to support them on this journey.Most adult cigarette smokers say that they want to quit,[i] but quitting smoking is hard and may require several attempts.[ii],[iii] Creating a quit plan and using proven-effective resources, like Tobacco Free Florida, can significantly increase your chances of quitting smoking for good. [iv],[v],[vi] Smokers can and do quit smoking. In fact, today there are more former smokers than current smokers in Florida.[vii]Tobacco Free Florida’s Quit Your Way program offers free Phone Quit, Group Quit, and Web Quit services, in addition to individual tools like texting support, a Quit Guide and helpful emails. Free nicotine replacement therapy – nicotine patches, gum or lozenges – are available to tobacco users who are 18 or older, if medically appropriate.For more information about Quit Your Way, please visit tobaccofreeflorida.com/quityourway. About Tobacco Free FloridaThe Florida Department of Health’s Tobacco Free Florida campaign is a statewide cessation and prevention campaign funded by Florida’s tobacco settlement fund. Since the program began in 2007, more than 212,000 Floridians have successfully quit using one of Tobacco Free Florida’s free tools and services. There are now approximately 451,000 fewer adult smokers in Florida than there was 10 years ago, and the state has saved $17.7 billion in health care costs.[viii] To learn more about Tobacco Free Florida’s Quit Your Way services, visit www.tobaccofreeflorida.com or follow the campaign on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TobaccoFreeFlorida or on Twitter at www.twitter.com/tobaccofreefla.

Prancing ‘streaker’ gets nailed by security

first_imgThursday Oct 1, 2009 Prancing ‘streaker’ gets nailed by security At halftime in an Air New Zealand Cup match recently this young guy contributed to setting up a funny moment that we felt was simply too good to not share. So while this clip is really short, it has to be seen. ADVERTISEMENTIf you’re going to streak at a rugby match, the rule of thumb is to stand behind the advertising boards, whip off your clothes, then sprint out onto the field in the knowledge that if you hesitate, you’re more than likely going to get nailed by security.As well as keeping that in mind, it’s pretty lame if you get on there for your moment of fame and do a half job. Prancing around in a non-manly manner, half-clothed isn’t advisable either.The best part of it, for the spectator, is when the unsuspecting ‘streaker’ gets surprised by an overly enthusiastic security officer who’s probably been waiting for that opportunity since he first got the job.The funniest part about this is that the crunching hit was probably not the only punishment. In most places, streakers or pitch invaders will get taken off to a jail cell for a night, and possibly face a large fine.Time: 0:20 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies , See it to Believe it Related Articles 12 WEEKS AGO The results of face-swapping Six Nations… 12 WEEKS AGO Bristol have released another ridiculous… 13 WEEKS AGO WATCH: 120kg prop leaves Scottish player… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

New Zealand tested by England but the World Champions remain unbeaten

first_imgSunday Nov 17, 2013 New Zealand tested by England but the World Champions remain unbeaten England weren’t able to repeat the heroics of a year ago but they did put up a good fight as New Zealand won yet another away match in 2013. The 30-22 victory extended the All Blacks’ undefeated run on the occasion of flyhalf Dan Carter’s 100th Test cap.Julian Savea scored twice and Kieran Read once as the AB’s outscored the hosts three tries to one. England lost at home for the first time in seven games, but will take heart from the effort, and what they have achived in their last three matches.“We are deeply disappointed having put ourselves in position at 22-20 but I’m proud of the effort,” England head coach Stuart Lancaster said post match. “We had a lot of young players, some new combinations, a lot of experienced players missing, and we didn’t get off to the best of starts. Being 17-3 down to the All Blacks is not where you want to be but we kept our composure, we kept building our score. “But you know against New Zealand one error can present them an opportunity that they might take and that’s what happened. We’ve had two wins over southern hemisphere teams and pushed another, who have won every game this year, very close. “We are building a squad, building depth, which is what we want – but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a desperately disappointed dressing room,” he added.Carter limped off in the first quarter of his 100th Test match but Aaron Cruden came on to steer the ship and in the end they managed to edge ahead and hang on fairly comfortably.“It was a hell of a Test match, you had two committed teams going at it. We’re very happy to come away with the win,” said All Blacks captain Richie McCaw.Read and Ma’a Nonu both provided outstanding offloads for Savea’s two tries, while Israel Dagg set Read up beautifully for his. Owen Farrell kicked 17 points for England, who will be pleased with their overall Autumn International results after having beaten Australia and Argentina previously.New Zealand head to Dublin next weekend to take on Ireland, who lost to the Wallabies yesterday.  &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;mce:script language=&#8217;JavaScript1.1&#8242; mce_src=&#8221;http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/adj/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie;sz=400&#215;80;ord=[timestamp]&#8221;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/mce:script&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;NOSCRIPT&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;A HREF=&#8221;http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/jump/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400&#215;80;ord=[timestamp]?&#8221; mce_HREF=&#8221;http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/jump/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400&#215;80;ord=[timestamp]&#8221;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;IMG SRC=&#8221;http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/ad/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400&#215;80;ord=[timestamp]?&#8221; mce_SRC=&#8221;http://ad-ace.doubleclick.net/ad/N4827.147781.RUGBYDUMP.COM/B7843647.17;abr=!ie4;abr=!ie5;sz=400&#215;80;ord=[timestamp]&#8221; BORDER=0 WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=80 ALT=&#8221;Advertisement&#8221;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/A&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/NOSCRIPT&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

Wallabies turn to experience with Rugby Championship 33-man squad

first_imgFriday Aug 5, 2016 Wallabies turn to experience with Rugby Championship 33-man squad Wallabies Coach Michael Cheika has named an experienced 33-man squad for the Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup, that kick off later this month. Following a disastrous England series, the Wallabies are looking to bolster up the squad ahead of a tough challenge.The squad has been strengthened by a legion of experienced French-based Test campaigners, with Matt Giteau, Drew Mitchell, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Will Genia and Quade Cooper all named in the squad as the men in gold look to defend their Rugby Championship crown and end a long-standing Bledisloe Cup drought.The Rugby Championship will be Cooper’s first stop on his comeback to Australia ahead of a Super Rugby return in 2017 following a brief stint with French powerhouse Toulon, where he linked with fellow Wallabies Giteau and Mitchell for the 2015/16 Top 14 season. Fellow French-based star Will Genia will take his first steps on the comeback from a knee injury which has kept him out of Rugby since January, while utility back Adam Ashley-Cooper will look to add to his 114 Test caps after returning from Bordeaux. The five foreign-based players are hungry for more success in the gold jersey having played an integral role in the Wallabies’ run to the Rugby World Cup Final in England last year. All four uncapped players included in Cheika’s initial train-on squad – Allan Ala’alatoa, Reece Hodge, Tom Robertson and Lopeti Timani – have been retained in the final 33-man squad ahead of the four-nation tournament. Three debutants from the recent England Series are also in the running to add to their Test tally with Samu Kerevi, Adam Coleman and Dane Haylett-Petty all named to join the squad at its training base in Terrigal on the NSW Central Coast next week. Lock Kane Douglas is in the squad for the first time in 2016, after returning from a knee reconstruction, while his second row partner Rob Simmons has also made his way back from a shoulder injury which cut short his Super Rugby campaign. Kurtley Beale, Rory Arnold and Joe Tomane were not considered for the squad because of injury. The Qantas Wallabies will open their Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup campaigns against New Zealand at ANZ Stadium, Sydney, on Saturday, August 20. Tickets for the clash are available through Ticketek.Wallabies 33-man squad: Allan Ala’alatoa* (0 Tests), Adam Ashley-Cooper (114 Tests), Adam Coleman (1 Test), Quade Cooper (58 Tests), Kane Douglas (23 Tests), Scott Fardy (33 Tests), Israel Folau (41 Tests), Bernard Foley (30 Tests), Will Genia (66 Tests), Matt Giteau (102 Tests), James Hanson (10 Tests), Dane Haylett-Petty (3 Tests), Reece Hodge* (0 Tests), Michael Hooper (54 Tests), Rob Horne (32 Tests), Sekope Kepu (66 Tests), Samu Kerevi (2 Tests), Tevita Kuridrani (34 Tests), Ben McCalman (48 Tests), Sean McMahon (9 Tests), Drew Mitchell (70 Tests), Stephen Moore (c) (105 Tests), Dean Mumm (46 Tests), Nick Phipps (42 Tests), David Pocock (56 Tests), Tatafu Polota-Nau (64 Tests), Tom Robertson (0 Tests), Rob Simmons (62 Tests), Scott Sio (18 Tests), Will Skelton (15 Tests), James Slipper (77 Tests), Lopeti Timani* (0 Tests), Matt Toomua (32 Tests)ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Wallabies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO New compilation shows how 132kg former teenage… 43 WEEKS AGO Rugby League’s State of Origin could help… 49 WEEKS AGO Rennie confident that Wallabies youth can… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgTuesday Jul 7, 2020 One of rugby’s most entertaining characters turns 30 today and this footage shows why we love him Harlequins and England prop Joe Marler celebrates his 30th birthday today. Over the years he’s entertained with numerous amusing moments both on and off the field. Here’s a short look at some of those that brought a smile to fans faces. ADVERTISEMENTSince scoring a glorious try for the England U20s many moons back, Marler has been on our radar as one to watch.While he made strides on the field, it didn’t take long for his personality to shine through and fans and media to realise that if you just get a camera on him, he’ll say or do something hilarious.WATCH: Joe Marler play-fights with teammate after scoring in front of home fansFrom taunting the opposition at the top of his voice, to being strangled by James Haskell for being a total wind-up merchant, Marler is never far from controversy.And while some might find his antics annoying, there’s no doubt that for most, his humour is something that’s much needed in an increasingly professional and media-trained world.BT Sport have put together this little compilation for his birthday. Happy Birthday, Joe.

Hervey Bay Farmhouse / Owen and Vokes

Enclosure + Comfort Vast and open natural landscapes do not provide the conditions suitable to enduring human habitation. The infinite scale of such a landscape, without limit or border, is also immeasurable to the human body and therefore generally discomforting. When placed in a vast and open landscape, there is a human predilection for making enclosure – a legible place which is measurable to the human eye and body, and which increases the chances for comfort and pleasure, and sustained human habitation. Our clients purchased a large, vacant parkland site for their new family house. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesOur first move was to define a place on the site within the vast and boundless landscape. An existing stand of young eucalypt, topographical nuances and preferred scenes told us where to erect an enclosure of brick walls. Symbolic of human intervention, the earth was benched and retained to complete the new place. The new enclosure, a public outdoor court, idealises the presence of nature. It simultaneously offers a comfortable place to dwell (refuge), and composes a picturesque landscape (prospect) beyond the apertures in its walls. Bricks During our first inspection of the site we came to the conclusion that we would build in brick. We seek appropriate reactions to settings. All of the neighboring houses were built in brick and we didn’t want our clients to unnecessarily oppose the established trend. Save this picture!We also seek a timeless presence in architecture. Bricks are neither pretentious nor fashionable. The bricks have been bonded in a humble way using a struck-flush mortar finish. We let sunlight embellish the large planes of red brick. As brick walls are the staple of the garden and the house, we were able to make seamless thresholds between interior and exterior realms. We have a preference for monumentality. Bricks allowed us to anchor the house to the site and to the ground – the territory of the child, and therefore of the family. Save this picture!On a simple conceptual level, we start with brick wall enclosures – poetically somewhat likened to a ruin such as those at St Helena Island. Internal and external rooms, lined in plasterboard or fibro, then occupy the enclosures. Cohabitation The house is designed to accommodate 3 generations of the one family. Our second early-design conclusion was that the best way to manage the issues of independence, security and privacy, within the site, and with adjacent sites, was to house all 3 generations within the one building. Save this picture!On the entry elevation, the large, centrally-placed brick screen is a shared facade that mediates depth, separation and privacy. On the rear elevation, brick piers break the walls into 9 room-sized facades, giving each room, and therefore each generation its very own private landscape outlook.Project gallerySee allShow lessPrada Transformer, Position 2: CinemaArticlesIn Progress: Doha Office Tower, Qatar / Ateliers Jean NouvelArticles Share Projects Year:  2008 Australia Architects: Owen and Vokes Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/28741/hervey-bay-farmhouse-owen-and-vokes Clipboard CopyAbout this officeOwen and VokesOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesHervey BayAustraliaPublished on July 14, 2009Cite: “Hervey Bay Farmhouse / Owen and Vokes” 14 Jul 2009.

The property is located in second row and accessed by a 3 meter wide and 30 feet long access route. A Mediterranean courtyard layout with parking spaces, a double garage and the house entrance opens up here. Cypress trees planted in a white pebble bed limit the visual axes to the east. The entrance area is accessible from here, protected against the weather by the one meter over-hanging upper floor. Directly from the vestibule are accessible the guest toilet and the building services room. An air heat pump was installed here as heating system.Save this picture!Courtesy of ai.studioThe ground floor is designed as a free-flowing space. The dining area and the living room are separated only by a Spartherm tunnel fireplace (Varia B-FDh, linear, 4s with 11KW). Black shadow gaps and white suspended ceilings draw a clean, tidy and uniform interior. The surface concept is limited to the choice of only a few ma-terials. It wants to create a flowing, calm overall impression. Dark parquet, natural stone, white painted walls, white skirting boards, white lacquered interior doors (in-stalled flush) form the basis of the sampled materials. Black colour is outside, white colour inside. The builders like the interplay of light and shadow, which is reflected on the white plastered walls. Quote of the builders: “The colours finally come into the house by the residents.” Nothing is separated, but everything is connected to everything. Save this picture!Courtesy of ai.studioThe storage room under the stairs and the study can be separated by white, room-high sliding doors from the rest of the loft-style residential use. The centrally located staircase opens up the upper floor over a gallery with glass balustrade. Exciting interactions of splendid views and spatial relationships between kitchen, dining area, fireplace and garden open up to the observer from here. The upper floor is the sheltered area of the house. A children’s room, a bedroom, a dressing room, a wellness area and a west-facing roof terrace are situated here. In the summer evenings the owners can enjoy the sunset. The variety and the possi-bilities of a flowing space continuum result by ever-changing visual axes. It was a great wish of the builders to be able to record the whole interior from any location in the building. We offer the clients a kind of matrix, in which they can develop their individual interior options. All outdoor facilities are organic curved softly and thus form a marked contrast to the cubic architecture of the house.Project gallerySee allShow lessAustralia House Proposal / Andrew Burns ArchitectArticlesPortuguese architect Paulo David selected as 2012 Alvar Aalto Medal recipientArticles Share Projects EFH Haus Cracau / AI.STUDIOSave this projectSaveEFH Haus Cracau / AI.STUDIO Year:  “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/204365/efh-haus-cracau-ai-studio Clipboard ArchDaily Architects: AI.STUDIO Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAI.STUDIOOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasHousesMagdeburg3D ModelingGermanyPublished on February 03, 2012Cite: “EFH Haus Cracau / AI.STUDIO” 03 Feb 2012.

This family which wanted to build this house was motivated by the change of their living situation and wanted to express this also in their new house. The two children of this family wanted to have their own living surrounding but also wanted to be in close contact with the parents. On the other hand the parents wanted to have more private zones in the new house but also be in close contact with their children. Every floor of the house had to have an overview of the surrounding.Save this picture!© Daan DijkmeijerIn a certain way the new house is a translation of the family situation which is undergoing a transformation like many other families in the Netherlands. The family wanted a house which is flooded with light, which is experienced each season in a different way and they wanted to experience the surrounding from different locations in the house. From the outside this house gives a readable split level. A glimpse of the various functions of the house can been seen at different corners from outside and inside the house.For the term “split view” we could also use the term split mind, because the memory of the users of an average traditional house is at its best in traditional closed spaces (book of Joshua Foer). This theme mentioned in the book of Joshua Foer is as followed: If the person leaves the space where he has learned or read, the thought is easily forgotten by leaving the closed space and when the person returns to the same space, then this person remembers again the thought in question. Our mind/memory is categorized in rooms/spaces.Save this picture!© Daan DijkmeijerThis house will be an interesting thought and behaviour experiment because here are various crossover and open connections between different spaces. We question ourselves which effect this split view house will have on the mind and the remembering of facts and thoughts of the users of this house and will it result in a split mind/memory which is a modern variant is of our modern time of remembering and acting in this rapidly changing and liquid society.Save this picture!© Daan DijkmeijerWill the task of remembering and acting be influenced by the see- through and open connections in this split view house ? The interior of this house and the use is readable at the outside of the house and each side of the house is reacting in his own peculiar way, one time closed and the other time open, sometimes friendly and the other time hard-minded, sometimes unanswered and the other time it lights up and shows the inside.Save this picture!1st and 2nd floor plansMaterialisationThe staircase is made of wood (Yellow Poplar) and connects the several levels of the house. The house stands at the cross point of two roads. We proposed to lift the house up from their surrounding and to mark the different floors levels with steel beams which are also a reference to the road protection beams at the side to the roads in the Netherlands.Save this picture!© Daan DijkmeijerThe other materials are the two colours bricks (lxbxh= 240x90x40 mm) mm strong horizontal deep lying cement and vertical wood elements with different size (Plato wood: special modified wood), and the steel beams are galvanized and marks the beginning of the split in the house.The bricks are specially made in the colour with certain amount clay. We try to find a balance in the facades and we try to express the split view theme at the outside.Project gallerySee allShow lessMagic Plan App: Making Floor Plans on Your PhoneArticlesNational Mall Winning Design Proposal for Union Square / Gustafson Guthrie Nichol + …Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/232515/split-view-u-architects Clipboard Architects: U Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY”last_img read more

The volume is raised in the south part to provide a parking and also view and ventilation from the street to the existing garden.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. The building is located on a large hammer-shaped plot in Mauerbach, directly at the border between Vienna and Lower Austria. The plot is bordered on two sides by two overgrown brooks with a large number of trees. The two other sides of the plot face detached neighbouring houses. Save this picture!© Manfred SeidlEvery effort should be made to preserve the existing trees, although the coppices do need tidying. Save this picture!© Manfred SeidlProject definition:The owners wished to build a bungalow for two occupants, to be constructed as a well-equipped, thought-out summer residence. The occupants will be spending the winter months in an inner-city penthouse.  Save this picture!© Manfred SeidlThe building should have simple, clear and distinctive lines, with an open and easy-to-grasp layout. In particular, attention should be paid to the way the building would nestle against the large garden and to efficient sun protection. A basement was not required.   Concept:The draft concept envisages two horizontal slabs (roof + floor) that are linked at the back by a wooden box. The elongated box defines the backbone of the house and accommodates all technical and functional rooms such as utilities, bathroom, WC and two bedrooms. The functional box is preceded by a large living area that is completely glazed on three sides, with the “black” kitchen constituting the central anchor point around which the dining area, the lounge area with an open fireplace and the hallway are grouped. Save this picture!© Manfred SeidlThe roof slab is largely “free-floating“, thus defining the lounge area with a panoramic view of the garden on three sides. The large glazed areas let the garden into the lounge from any point in the room and whatever the weather. The 4-meter double sliding door in the middle of the main front opens the lounge area to the terrace.  The entire house is surrounded by a 244m² wooden deck made from Ipe hardwood and the deck then expands into the generously spaced terrace on three sides of the lounge area. The wooden roof slab with a “green roof” serves as the architectural counterpart to the terrace slab which extends over the terrace by 2.5m on three sides, providing structural shade for the large glazed areas and allowing the use of the terrace even on rainy days. The green roof also constitutes an excellent heat buffer for the flat roof, in addition to the projecting roof creating a large, shady seating area on the terrace, just outside the three-sided lounge area.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessAA Students “Amplify the Forest”Architecture NewsTaihu New Town Primary School / MINAXSelected Projects Share Projects ArchDaily “COPY” 2012 Architects: MOOSMANN Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Manfred Seidl+ 18 Sharelast_img read more

The commission for casa Oval came from a young family with clearly defined needs and aspirations. This project presented a challenge that has become increasingly prevalent among Mexican architects: to build a house in a cloistered residential community that often imposes arbitrary, traditionalist aesthetic restrictions on all construction. Privacy and space efficiency were the two driving concerns for the project. The house envelope needed to afford sufficient visual privacy from the street outside, while also providing enough porosity to allow generous amounts of natural light into the house. Save this picture!© Marcos GarcíaOn the ground floor, the main entry opens to a vestibule that leads to wide space containing the dining and living spaces. A large sliding window opens to a backyard and concrete deck. The kitchen is resolved efficiently in a small space next to the dining areas. On the second floor we find the various bedrooms and a family living space; all revolving around a large glazed courtyard that floods the hallway with sunlight. Save this picture!© Marcos GarcíaAt a first glance, the house displays a simple, legible geometric composition; a closer look reveals a concern for craftsmanship and detail. This is especially patent in the design of various elements of the house, such as the metal fence by the entry, which consists of vertical steel strips with varying gaps; the reveal that separates the volume of the house from the ground and delineates the windows on the façade; or the punctilious assembly of planes in window frames. Concrete, wood and stone are prominent participants among the austerity in the interiors.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBehind “Hy-Fi”: The Organic, Compostable Tower That Won MoMA PS1’s Young Architects …ArticlesWinners of the 2013 BSA Design Awards AnnouncedArchitecture News Share Houses CopyAbout this officeElías Rizo ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesZapopanHousesMexicoPublished on February 17, 2014Cite: “OVal House / Elías Rizo Arquitectos” 17 Feb 2014.

The ‘Blind Whale’ project investigates the value of Jo-cheon that is unique to Jeju Island. Jo-cheon refers to a sense of place and ‘Blind Whale’ achieves this by maintaining the round shaped roof that was once made of fishing nets.Save this picture!© Kim Jae-kyeongRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles- CoverlamLouvers / ShuttersTechnowoodSunshade SystemsDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)This type of roof is a  feature unique to Jeju farm houses. Jo-cheon village was settled about 800 years ago, in the early fourteenth century. It was considered by the locals as a waiting place where the mild winds  gently blew ships of people headed for the mainland. Jocheon,  also held a strategically significant location.Save this picture!PerspectiveFrom the Korea Dynasty to Joseon Dynasty period, Jeju island was used for exiles. Those who were exiled came together at Jocheon, a locations slightly closer to mainland where their family and the king lived.Save this picture!© Kim Jae-kyeongA stone house that overlooks the Yeon-buk-jung (Yeon-buk pavilion) in the middle of Jocheon village is considered to bring luck to those who reside in it. According to the Jocheon residents, this stone house has stood for over a hundred years.Save this picture!Floor PlanWhat’s more interesting, is shape of this stone house. The rounded roof looks like whale. It was weaved from nets and anchored down using stones so the wind wouldn’t blow it off. We named it after the ‘Blind Whale’ which believed to be  buried in the sea. The roof  looks like two whales that have drifted far from the sea and washed up on the land.Save this picture!© Kim Jae-kyeongIn keeping with the name ‘Blind Whale’, the aim of the project was to retain the sense of place and existing materials the location had to offer. In the past, the Jo-cheon people aspired to travel from here to the mainland but now many people long to come froçm the mainland to Jeju. We also people on land, in view of this, only rounded roof and walls made us feel like Jeju Island sensibility itself.Save this picture!Section 1In an effort to promote eco-tourism, a program was set up with local input and guidance so that Blind Whale can coexist with the environment and community. One way in which we did this was by maintaining the original size and shape of the building and only offering lodging though private rental.Save this picture!© Kim Jae-kyeongThe elements of the home we wished to put emphasis on were the rounded roof, stone walls and garden between the two stone houses. To preserve original state, we lowered floor level. And keep a Jeju stone house, low height and juju stone wall. We installed a window to open up seaward views.Save this picture!© Kim Jae-kyeongElements of the home such as the  flooring and gates were upcycled into tables, beds and other pieces of furniture. We aspired to keep the traditional aspects of a Jeju farm house. An example of this would be the inside wall which was replaced with a lower wall which kept with the original design but allowed for better circulation of people.Save this picture!Section 3The ‘Blind Whale’ project was successful case in revitalizing the value of a traditional Jeju stone house. Perhaps through this reconnection and renovation today’s generation will not feel the necessity to tear down the old and start a new but rather preserve their unique heritage. This project also gave us special meaning thatimportance of respect for heritage.Save this picture!© Kim Jae-kyeongThe process and end result allowed us to rediscover the value of this special place and space. it is our hope that this project will establish a precedent for other architects and developers looking to revitalize traditional areas. Project gallerySee allShow lessExhibition: The Shape of Light: Gabriel DaweEventEyrie Houses / Cheshire ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/774240/blind-whale-z-lab Clipboard Blind Whale / Z_LabSave this projectSaveBlind Whale / Z_Lab South Korea CopyHouses•Jeju-si, South Korealast_img read more

External timbers are either painted white to prolonge lifespan or made from teak capable of enduring harsh environments.

As a result, the pavilion became part of the landscape and the landscape became part of the pavilion: only 30 m2 of the forest grounds were allowed for construction with all of the trees preserved and integrated into the interior of the building.Save this picture!Section A-AThe desire to preserve the trees on the building site meant that no construction equipment could be installed during the construction stage, all excavation works were done by hand and the assembly works were done by special manipulators. The basement was constructed using a top-down technique: the ground was removed level by level and the building was erected downwards.Save this picture!© Sergey MoiseevSave this picture!© Sergey MoiseevThe basement containing locker rooms and weight benches, the ground floor with cardio-vascular machines and the first floor accommodating a yoga gym – constitute the necessary building area requirements.Save this picture!© Sergey MoiseevThe angle of the roof’s ridge brings a certain dynamic to the building’s architectural form, while the pavilion itself consists of two parts – the northern glazed part and the southern wooden part. Multi-level terraces frame the pavilion with canopies for comfortable outdoor activities in any weather. In the northern part, the terrace connects the sports pavilion with the existing bathing facility.Save this picture!© Timur TurgunovThe pavilion is carefully integrated into the existing landscape. The first-floor balcony is made from glass to create less shade for the site, while the gym on the ground floor is equipped with glass sliding doors that erase the borders between the interior and exterior. The building’s supporting structures situated between trees are clad with lightboxes. The steps of the terrace have built-in decorative boxes for plants.Save this picture!© Sergey MoiseevThe three floors are connected by a spiral staircase with an intricate handrailing from copper plates. The rubber-coated polymer steps enable one to safely move between the floors. Save this picture!© Timur TurgunovThe interior design of the pavilion meets the highest design standards for sports facilities: the project includes professional flooring (SPORTEC style and MIRAGE hardwood sports flooring), and pays special attention to the natural ventilation system – special air gaps are left between the ground floor and the second floor for better air circulation.Special design tricks, like bespoke mirror figures of famous boxers, can also be found in the interior.Save this picture!© Timur TurgunovProduct Description. In this project we used German sliding doors system “Schueco” with high thermal insulation made of aluminum, series: ASS 70.HI.. This system made it possible to combine a sport hall with forest outside and increase the living space of the building. Due to extremely high strength of aluminum, we used the construction with narrow sash and large glazed surfaces that provide the maximum degree of transparency premises and penetration of daylight.Project gallerySee allShow lessKapelle Salgenreute / Bernardo Bader ArchitektenSelected ProjectsHotel Proverbs Taipei / Ray Chen + Partners ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/806618/the-sports-pavilion-horomystudio Clipboard CopyAbout this officeHoromystudioOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSaint PetersburgRussiaPublished on March 08, 2017Cite: “The Sports Pavilion / Horomystudio” 07 Mar 2017.

There is a dead-end street sandwiched between two mid-rise buildings at a three-minute walking distance from Sangenjaya station. Peeking into the narrow street, one finds the space suddenly opens up to the sky and the 52-year old building quietly standing at the dead-end. Our client’s grandfather had been using the building as his clinic and a private house for his family for a long time, before the client inherited it and asked us to do the renovation. Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaConsidering its location in the city, a reasonable decision would be to build a new tenant building or rental apartment building with an increased floor area, but the client wished to keep the existing building, which had been loved by the local residents for a long time, rather than prioritizing business profits. Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaSave this picture!© Kenta HasegawaWe started out with preserving the structure and making plans to generate new activities there, with an aim to eventually “foster” a place loved by the community again. Since the client wanted to invite many friends to the new house, we placed a small gallery (to be operated by the client himself) at the southwest corner on the first floor and his house on the second floor, and connected both spaces. We also decided that the remaining space on the first floor would be rented out to a tenant, hoping that the space will mediate between the building and the city and all the activities inside will extend beyond and synchronize with urban activities. 

 Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaSince the center of Tokyo used to have more spaces 52 years ago, spaces in this building were planned generously; half of the second floor is a spacious balcony where you can experience an open feeling under the urban sky. The balcony and the connecting doma (meaning an “earth space” in Japanese) mediate between the public zone (tenant space and gallery) on the first floor and the private space (house) on the second floor, connecting all activities to generate lively interactions in daily life. Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaThe distinct charm of the 52-year old structure was kept as much as possible; the exposed exterior facades are kept as they are, while all infrastructure is encased in the service core finished with painted plasterboard. The infrastructure branches out from the main core and runs through the plenum above the painted ceiling above doma, under the raised floor and behind the painted walls to serve the public and private zones.Save this picture!© Kenta HasegawaProject gallerySee allShow lessBayonne Marinadour / Mateo ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsMirroring the Flatness of a Calm River: Cheongvogl Win Seoul Ferry Terminal CompetitionUnbuilt Project Share 2017 Projects Area:  217 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/874355/house-in-sangenjaya-schemata-architects Clipboardlast_img read more

Over the horizon, the unspoiled views of a valley… the house as a place to relax and unwind, maybe even isolate yourself from the world… an oasis.Save this picture!© Germán CaboThe project respects the modulation of the existing terraces and olive trees, standing as a lookout over the tops of these. The landscape scenery is to be perceived as the ideal place, almost in a romantic way. Therefore, the proposal is born from the pursuit of a place from which to admire the vast valley and distant mountains, taking advantage of the natural inclination of the land.Save this picture!© Germán CaboConsequently, it becomes a split-level house that integrates the living spaces, functioning as a lookout over the preexisting olive trees that endow the landscape with character while bringing quality to the space.Save this picture!© Germán CaboSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Germán CaboSave this picture!Cross sectionSave this picture!© Germán CaboThe orientation of the house ensures a good illumination throughout the whole day. An effective south-facing roof protects from the intense summer sun, but at the same time allows for solar incidence in winter. Vibrant reflections shimmering over the surface of the swimming pool amplify the view of the surroundings being an ideal place to contemplate the view of the sunset. The Access from the northeast road to the house, is formally more opaque. A stone wall marks and highlights the access, providing privacy throughout the path to the interior.Save this picture!© Germán CaboInside, the living-dining room and kitchen function as a diaphanous centerpiece, connecting with the corridor. Thanks to the transparent side panel that opens to a garden under the skylight the corridor gets special quality in space and lighting. The master bedroom is the piece that relishes in a unique orientation, southwest, guaranteeing its indispensable privacy. The interior space can be extended beyond the carpentry thanks to an eave focusing the views towards a more private garden, with the dominant presence of an old olive tree.Save this picture!© Germán CaboThe project seeks to convey feelings, not only through its form or volumetry, but also through its materials. Each of the materials used brings a texture, a radiance, an impression, creating a unique atmosphere. Dry stone, wood, plaster and glass are chosen as basic elements. The stone materializes the walls that extend beyond the house enhancing the feeling of robustness, linking them with those of the original terraces.Save this picture!© Germán CaboThe wood, mainly present in the entrance, gives warmth and its disposition, in thin strips of wood, tries to generate a sensation of lightness and elegance. The volumetry, as if it were a block of sculpted plaster, is presented in a continuous white mortar, achieving a unitary and solid effect. It`s color, white, enhances the luminosity of the house. The large glazing allows the light to invade the house and in turn to contemplate the views from inside.Save this picture!© Germán CaboThe implementation of the house, together with the interior and exterior continuity of the spaces and the emotions evoked by the chosen materials, suggest the concept of a lookout over existing olive trees, from where you can admire the broad views of the valley enhanced by the reflections of the water.Save this picture!© Germán CaboProject gallerySee allShow lessOslo Architecture Triennale Announces Open Call for 2019 CuratorArchitecture NewsArchitecture Classics: Teatro Oficina / Lina Bo Bardi & Edson ElitoArchitecture Classics Share Architects: Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Area:  233 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeGallardo Llopis ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsGlassStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesValenciaSpainPublished on September 11, 2017Cite: “House on the Olive Trees / Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos” 11 Sep 2017.

The design of this home was a direct response to its site, being south facing and on a steep bluff overlooking Hobson Bay, a city fringe suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. “It had great views back to the city, and my client asked to be able to stand in her kitchen and see the Sky Tower,” says architect, Paul Leuschke. The issue was there was no building platform. “It was a delicate exercise in making the most of a not-so-favorable site facing the wrong way [for the sun] and on a cliff, plus achieving a degree of separation from its neighbors.” says the architect.Save this picture!Site Plan and Floor PlansFollowing some substantial remedial work during up an existing driveway, the form of the new house comprises two boxes over three levels – a ground-floor volume constructed using smooth-plastered concrete-block, containing a motor court and three-car garaging and an upper volume, clad in dark-stained vertical cedar housing the bedrooms. Between the two boxes is the stair, with a bridge above between the parent’s ensuite and the children’s bedrooms.Save this picture!© Sophie LeuschkeSandwiched in between, the living spaces are surrounded by an almost continuous ribbon of glazing that not only allows in much-needed sunlight in from the north but also affords great views out towards the city to the south. “To stretch the view further, we cantilevered the family room out over the cliff,” says Leuschke. “This allows the family to see further around the bay towards the harbor and tha marina below.” As a bonus, the architect gave his client a private yet perfectly framed vista of the Sky Tower from her bathtub by popping out a narrow vertical section of the upper story.Save this picture!© Sophie LeuschkeProject gallerySee allShow lessOffice at #15 / Biome Environmental SolutionsSelected ProjectsFunktion Design Studio / Funktion DesignSelected Projects Share “COPY”last_img read more

La Casa en La Loma is a detached house located in the town of Sinsacate, about 55 km from the city of Córdoba. It sits on the Camino Real-trail, an old area for horse exchange and resting place for travellers heading to Peru at the time of the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata. Over the years it began to be used by some families in Córdoba for their holidays during the summer months.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe lot where the house is implanted has a natural elevation generating a podium where the house perches in a sculptural way and gives exceptional visuals from the interior of the house. The main premise was to prioritise the landscape and visuals, so the house is materialised by framing a natural postcard where the surrounding landscape completely motivated its conception.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe spaces have a linear development and are contained by a concrete skin, with stone details and glass enclosures, all austere, noble and maintenance-free materials.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe social area is in the center of the strip, while the private areas, that is to say, the bedrooms are arranged at the open ends facing the views. The suite with a bathroom and dressing room are separated by the social area from the other three bedrooms with direct entry from the outside, thus granting privacy to each of the members of the family.Save this picture!Axonometric ViewThe social areas are located in the centre of the strip. Linked to the entrance hall is the living room, followed by the dining room, which is directly linked to the kitchen with a marble bar, which is not only used when cooking but also, every morning at each breakfast.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteContinuing with the concept of visually linking the spaces, next to the dining room, separated by a sliding glass curtain is the barbecue. This meeting space turns out to be the heart of the house, the place with more use and dynamism of the entire project. These mobile glass skins give the house the ability to be flexible and to adapt according to the uses and requirements of its occupants.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe pool is located outside as a recreational space and playing the role of a water mirror and link between the living spaces and the natural horizon. The gallery of the entire length of the house works as a connecting link between the landscape and each of the interior spaces.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteAs for the materialisation, a harmony between the house and the surrounding environment was sought for. The purity of the concrete and porphyry skins give the sensation of a large rock on the hill, in which you can seek refuge, calm and tranquillity while always maintaining the connection with nature.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow lessHospital Manta / PMMTSelected ProjectsVale De Moses Meditation CabinsIdeas Share Manufacturers: Sika, Electroalem, InterAlumina ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928883/house-on-the-hill-abdenur-arquitectos Clipboard Houses Save this picture!© Gonzalo Viramonte+ 27Curated by Danae Santibañez Share CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Sinsacate, Argentina Area:  544 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Abdenur Pablo, Abdenur Juan Pablo, Alejandro Rodriguez, Agustin Castagneris, Facundo Ferreyra CopyAbout this officeAbdenur ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsSinsacateArgentinaPublished on November 21, 2019Cite: “House on the Hill / Abdenur Arquitectos” [Casa en la Loma / Abdenur Arquitectos] 21 Nov 2019.

Spinning off – effective transitions

first_img Warren Tranquada and John Pepin explain the lessons that should be applied when an organisation creates a new nonprofit or for-profit spinoff.Pepin and Tranquada of Pepin, Tranquada & Associates have conducted a preliminary study of successful and non-successful spinoffs from the corporate and voluntary sector to identify some general lessons that can improve the likelihood of a spinoff obtaining funding and becoming a successful organisation.In an article on Canada’s CharityVillage.com, they set out the key indicators of likely success. The abstract of their paper lists them: Advertisement Howard Lake | 28 December 2002 | News “1) Clean Break – It is desirable in the long term to strive for a clean-break and completely separate the child and parent organisations. The new structure should be transparent and focused.2) Share Resources Formally – During the transition phase, it is legitimate and healthy for the organisations to share some resources, however, clear and written contracts should be established to clarify roles, expectations, costs, payment and ownership. 3) Legal and Managerial Independence – The parent should be a significant but minority partner. A controlled subsidiary can scare away new partners and minimise the benefits of the spin-off.4) Market Relationship – When purchasing services between the entities, market mechanisms should be used to set price. Transactions should be arms length and the child should have the option to purchase from someone other than the parent.5) Avoid Conflicts of Interest – Simplify the structure and strive for arms length relationships. In the interim, use a trusted objective outsider to act as an overseer of major decisions.6) Sharing Management – In the short term, sharing of management may be vital to the success of the spinoff. However, in the long term it can lead to misunderstandings with the board and stakeholder groups. Establish a transition plan early on to replace shared management with an independent team.7) Transition Plan – Ultimately, management and staff should decide what organisation they will work for. In a reasonable manner, staff of the parent should begin to concentrate their efforts on one organisation or the other, ultimately transferring to the organisation where most of their effort is being directed. 8) Completing the Transition – Investment from an external partner and/or corporate profitability will trigger implementing the final phase of the transition plan.”You can read the full paper at CharityVillage.com.

9th Annual Scrooge Awards discover which retailer gives the least to charity

Tagged with: Awards christmas corporate Trading  32 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Charities Advisory Trust has announced the winner of the ninth annual Scrooge Award based on its survey of high street retailers to find “who is using charity to help boost sales but actually giving very little to charity”.The Scrooge Award this year goes to Cards Galore, for the second year in a row. Of 116 charity card designs, 75 (65%) gave less than 10% to charity. The card giving least to charity was found at Cards Galore, giving just 4.2% to the British Heart Foundation.Consistency was also achieved by Fenwicks, who won the Trust’s Georgy Porgy award for greed for the second year in a row: 90% of their charity card range (62 designs) gave less than 10% to charity.Charities Advisory Trust (CAT) explains that it can identify how much goes to charity because it is a requirement of the Charities Act that the amount is shown, so the customer can make an informed choice. Nevertheless, some retailers omit this information: this year, CAT say that Monsoon’s cards failed to comply in this regard. Charitably, CAT accepted that “where the amounts are not shown it is usually through incompetence rather than an attempt to deceive”.CAT has been campaigning for years to secure higher rates of donations from charity Christmas card retailers. With no legislation to control the amount going to charity, companies can give as little as 1% to charity and still label the card as a charity card. As the Trust points out, “EU regulations would not allow a meat pie with 1% meat, to be labelled as a meat pie, but cards can be labelled as charity cards with even less than 1% going to charity.”CAT’s aim is to ensure that the charity donation on a charity Christmas card is a minimum of 10%.This year it can report some further successes. It announced a special ‘Reformed Sinner’ award to Harrods. “It has been a consistent winner of the Scrooge Award or the Georgy Porgy award for greed, but this year their charity cards gave a proper 10% to charity”, said CAT. “Thank you Harrods:you have helped people in need”, they added.CAT is also critical of some charities’ approaches to the Christmas card trade. “For charities which are campaigning against global warming why agree to have cards printed in China, and shipped round the world?” it asks.“We continue to be disappointed that the charities fail to strike better deals”, said Dame Hilary Blume, Director of the Charities Advisory Trust”. If they acted in concert they could agree not to go below 10%. But we are really pleased with Harrods.”www.charitiesadvisorytrust.org.uk Howard Lake | 8 November 2010 | News 9th Annual Scrooge Awards discover which retailer gives the least to charitylast_img read more
