Andy Ross | Monday, 30th November, 2020 | More on: EZJ VTY center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares This month, cheap shares have come into vogue. Investors are chasing shares that have been out of favour because of the pandemic and that have the potential to bounce back quickly as the stock market recovers.The shares prices of housebuilder Vistry Group (LSE: VTY) and airline easyJet (LSE: EZJ) are up 47.5% and 62.5% respectively in just the last month. Usually, such a rapid increase would make me nervous. Certainly, there is some risk buying at these prices – at least in the short term. So, I might be tempted to drip-feed my investments and average down if necessary. Fundamentally though I think the share prices should keep going up and they could be very good investments.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…A cheap share with further rises to comeI’m optimistic about Vistry because the shares are relatively cheap, it earns a strong return on capital employed (a sign of a quality business) and it operates in a market where prices are generally resilient. House prices have done well so far, despite the economic backdrop, arguably because of government support.Furthermore, the housebuilder delivered a positive update just this month. It said it was on track to deliver full-year profit at the top end of its £130m-£140m forecast range. It’s also planning to resume dividend payments in 2021. That’s a step some of the other housebuilders like Persimmon have already taken.The company also guided for full-year 2021 profits of £310m and expected to cut net debt by a further £100m.The shares aren’t without risk. Then again, most rewards don’t come without some level of risk. Overall, I’d be very comfortable buying the shares and indeed I’m very tempted to do so.A recovery in the making for this cheap airlineI also like the look of easyJet as a long term investment for the next few years because the shares have become much cheaper.  The key, I think, will be to look beyond the big losses the company is making right now and focus on the bigger picture. Once conditions improve, there will be pent-up demand for overseas holidays, a return to business travel and much bigger profits for airlines. That’s why I’m optimistic, long term, about the shares.Even over the next few months, I expect it to do well. Any further positive vaccine updates are likely to boost the market. Although realistically, I think the biggest jumps have already come. The rise now might be more gradual, but I expect easyJet’s share price to still be a winner as we move back towards normal.I think the shares should recover in time to nearer a level at which they started 2020. Fundamentally the company itself is good and should come out the other side strongly. I think patient, brave investors buying now will be rewarded. That’s why I’m tempted to buy and hold the shares.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL 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 El 20 de mayo, los panelistas compartieron historias sobre la migración en sus contextos locales durante la 21ª. conferencia anual de la Red Global de la Misión Episcopal. Foto de Julius Ariail.[Episcopal News Service – Ponce, Puerto Rico] ¿Qué significa llevar a cabo la misión de Dios  en un mundo en continuo movimiento? Ese fue el tema propuesto por la 21ª. conferencia anual de la Red Global de la Misión Episcopal [GEMN por su sigla en inglés] que se celebró la semana pasada en Puerto Rico.Como ciudadanos de EE.UU., los puertorriqueños hace mucho que hicieron el viaje al norte, pero la crisis económica de la isla caribeña que ya se extiende por una década ha acelerado esa tendencia, particularmente en 2014, cuando una cifra récord de 84.000 personas —un promedio de 240 por día— se marchó. En la actualidad viven más puertorriqueños en Estados Unidos que en la isla.Es un fenómeno que afecta a los puertorriqueños en todos los niveles de la sociedad, dijo el Rdo. Ángel Rivera, sacerdote de la Diócesis de Puerto Rico y miembro de la junta [directiva] de la GEMN, durante la discusión de un panel centrado en “la misión en medio de la migración”.Como Rivera y otros panelistas sostuvieron, las iglesias han presenciado el efecto de la migración en familias y comunidades.Sean migrantes económicos en busca de trabajo o refugiados y solicitantes de asilo que huyen de la violencia y de la guerra en sus países o de desastres naturales, cifras récord de personas se encuentran en movimiento en la actualidad. Unos 244 millones de personas —igual a tres cuartas partes de la población de EE.UU.— vive fuera de sus países de origen, un número que incluye 20 millones de refugiados y 59,9 millones de personas desplazadas interiormente, una cifra récord.Sólo en Colombia, más de 7.000.000 de personas se han visto desplazadas internamente debido a un conflicto armado librado en gran medida por el control de la tierra en el país sudamericano. Otras 350.000 se han convertido en refugiadas.El gobierno colombiano y los grupos insurgentes han dedicado los últimos cuatro años a negociar un acuerdo de paz, explicó el obispo [episcopal] de Colombia Francisco Duque, quien también habló en el panel.En el ínterin, la Iglesia ha respondido atendiendo a las necesidades de las personas en el ámbito local y en los países vecinos, como Ecuador, que han aceptado refugiados.El obispo Julio Holguín, de la Diócesis de la República Dominicana, explicó la situación en su país donde dominicanos de ascendencia haitiana se han visto privados de la ciudadanía, reduciéndoles de este modo a [la condición de] apátridas. Noah Bullock, director ejecutivo de la Fundación Cristosal, describió la presente violencia alimentada por las pandillas en El Salvador y en las vecinas Guatemala y Honduras, una crisis que ha llevado a la gente a huir del triángulo norte de América Central, ya sea a Estados Unidos o a [otros países] de la región. En 2015, 17.500 personas fueron víctimas de muerte violenta en El Salvador y se calcula que unas 500.000 se han visto desplazadas por la violencia. José Bringas Lisara, de la Diócesis de Cuba, describió la más reciente oleada migratoria, como cifras récord de personas que están abandonando la isla ante el temor de que termine la Ley de Ajuste Cubano que ha favorecido a los inmigrantes cubanos desde 1966.La modernización de Cuba, de su economía en base a “la propiedad privada y las cooperativas”, ha entusiasmado a unos y aterrado a otros, dijo Bringas, añadiendo que los cubanos aún creen en el “sueño americano” y que irse de Cuba para Estados Unidos “resolverá sus problemas”, cuando eso no es el caso. La Iglesia Episcopal de Cuba, dijo él, trabaja para ayudar a las personas a mejorar sus vidas en el nivel comunitario, con la esperanza de que decidan quedarse y hacer su vida en Cuba.Más de 120 episcopales —entre ellos 20 misioneros jóvenes adultos y adultos— se reunieron en la Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico en Ponce para la conferencia del 18 al 20 de mayo. Además de la interconexión, la conferencia anual ofrece talleres para instruirlos y capacitarlos en su obra de misión y una oportunidad de adorar juntos.Tal como resultó obvio durante el panel del último día, la migración —que es realmente un comodín que se usa para etiquetar a personas en movimiento— tiene un impacto mundial. La Iglesia Episcopal está respondiendo de varios modos a abordar las necesidades de migrantes, refugiados y solicitantes de asilo.En Seattle, Washington, por ejemplo, la Misión a los Marinos les ofrece apoyo a marinos mercantes, muchos de los cuales pasan de nueve a 12 meses al año a bordo de barcos de carga, transportando mercancías alrededor del mundo. Estos hombres, dijo Ken Hawkins, director ejecutivo del Centro de Marinos de Seattle, con frecuencia no tienen las visas requeridas para salir de los barcos cuando están atracados en puerto. Mediante una red de más de 400 voluntarios y capellanes, la misión ofrece ayuda, en lo que respecta a tarjetas telefónicas y acceso a la Internet, y a través de consejería emocional y espiritual a los marinos.La crisis de refugiados sirios ha dado lugar a una mayor conciencia del gran número de refugiados que huye de la guerra, la violencia y la persecución; es una crisis que ha conducido al temor y al pánico, tanto en Europa Occidental como en Estados Unidos. En Europa, la Iglesia ha respondido proporcionando asistencia directa a los refugiados que viven en campamentos en Francia, y la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo está proporcionándole ayuda a sus asociados en el Oriente Medio.En el ámbito nacional, la Iglesia Episcopal tiene una larga historia de trabajar con el gobierno de EE.UU. para reasentar refugiados. El Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, el ministerio que se dedica al reasentamiento de refugiados en la Iglesia Episcopal, es una de las nueve agencias que trabajan en asociación con el Departamento de Estado de EE.UU. para acoger y reubicar refugiados en Estados Unidos.Además de trabajar con 30 [agencias] afiliadas al reasentamiento en 26 diócesis, que ofrecen ayuda directa a los recién llegados, el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración brinda medios a las congregaciones para 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 a favor de políticas que protejan los derechos de los refugiados y los solicitantes de asilo.En tanto las personas que participan en el reasentamiento de refugiados suelen esforzarse por garantizar que el proceso de reasentamiento se mantenga encarrilado, ahora luchan por la supervivencia del programa, dijo Allison Duvall, directora de relaciones y actividades eclesiásticas del EMM, durante una sesión plenaria del 19 de mayo en la que ella y Wendy Johnson, directora de comunicaciones del EMM, ofrecieron un panorama de la crisis de los refugiados, el proceso de reasentamiento y el papel histórico y contemporáneo de la Iglesia Episcopal en el reasentamiento de refugiados.A lo largo del último año, parcialmente en respuesta al temor generado por el gran número de refugiados sirios, 48 estados han presentado legislaciones que bien prohíben el ingreso de refugiados en sus estados o debilitan el programa de reasentamiento del gobierno de EE.UU.Uno de los medios esenciales en que los episcopales pueden llegar a influir en los asuntos de migración y reasentamiento de refugiados, dijo Johnson durante la plenaria, es a través de la participación en el proceso democrático.De los 20 millones de refugiados de todo el mundo, menos de un 1 por ciento serán reasentados; además, Estados Unidos reasienta a más refugiados que cualquier otro país en el mundo. La respuesta de la Iglesia no sólo se arraiga en [la enseñanza de] la acogida al extranjero, sino en el Pacto Bautismal.La semana pasada, la Red Episcopal de Política Pública publicó un Manual de Recursos para Participar en la Elección que ofrece medios a las congregaciones e individuos de que participen en el proceso electoral “fiel, responsable y legalmente”. Este manual afirma esa participación en la promesa del Pacto Bautismal de “luchar por la justicia y por la paz y respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano”.⎯ Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Originally known as Case Study House No. 8, the Eames House was such a spatially pleasant modern residence that it became the home of the architects themselves. Charles and Ray Eames began designing the house in 1945 for the Case Study House Program in Los Angeles’ Arts and Architecture Magazine published and built these case study homes that had to focus on the use of new materials and technologies developed during World War II. The intention was for the house to be made of prefabricated materials that would not interrupt the site, be easy to build, and exhibit a modern style.+ 20Save this picture!Plans + AxonRecommended ProductsWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensDoorsJansenDoors – Folding and SlidingDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20WoodEGGERLaminatesThe house is situated on a three-acre site on top of an 150-foot cliff that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The site is a flat parcel on otherwise steep land that creates a retaining wall to the west. The response to this condition was a concrete retaining wall that ties together the two boxes separated by a courtyard that make up the parti of the residence.Save this picture!© Flickr – Stephen Canon. Used under Creative CommonsThe two boxes serve two different functions. One is for the residence itself and the other is a studio.  Both provide double-height spaces at the corners and outer ends of both programs. This allows for a composition that breaks the space up rhythmetically, and is read on the exterior of the house with the exterior courtyard serving as a double-height space in between both boxes.Save this picture!© Flickr – Stephen Canon. Used under Creative CommonsAlong with the retaining concrete wall, a simple steel frame was used for the structure of the house. The steel frame used 4-inch H-columns for the walls and 12-inch deep web joists for the roof. The steel frame was filled in with different solid and transparent colored panels arranged to create a shifting light in the interior throughout the day. Save this picture!© Flickr – User: rpa2101The importance given to light in the design, with the exterior arranged in this particular way, can be connected to Japanese influence. This attention to detail, however, did not hinder the aspect of displaying the idea prefabrication. The house was built largely of standard components, such as the windows which measure a standard width of 3-feet 4-inches.Save this picture!via Library of CongressContrast to the cold steel framing that forms the structure, the interior of the house is warm and comforting with its wood-block floor and the soft light penetrating into each room through each day. Wooden staircases float effortlessly connecting the lower and upper levels. The use of natural materials on the interior bring the residence closer to nature, giving the appearance of the house resting softly on the earth.  A row of eucalyptus trees was also planted at the front that provide shade and blend parts of the house with outdoors.Save this picture!© architectenwerk.nlThe Eames House is a beautiful continuation of space. The rooms are liberating, flowing into one another even between floors through the double-height spaces. Private and public spaces are not strictly divided. For example, the bedroom on the upper level overlooks the public living room with a short terrace that connects the rooms. There are no major divisions other than the separation of the two boxes, which still merge into one another with the courtyard.

US and UK fundraisers need a theory of ethics, says fundraising think tank

first_imgUS and UK fundraisers need a theory of ethics, says fundraising think tank The fundraising codes of practice used by UK and US fundraisers do not adequately address the ethics of fundraising, according to the director of fundraising think tank Rogare. They need a theory of fundraising ethics to inform the codes.Ian MacQuillin, director of Rogare, was speaking about the need to adapt the current codes to address ethics to delegates at last week’s International Fundraising Congress, run by the Resource Alliance in Holland.In his session A new look at fundraising ethics he said:“There is a lack of clarity around the definition of ‘pressure’. We are proposing a code of ethics that balances the needs of the donor with the needs of the beneficiary.“Ethical fundraising balances the duty of fundraisers to ask for support (on behalf of their beneficiaries) with the right of the public not to be put under undue pressure to donate. It is in this space – the space between the rights of the beneficiary and the rights of the donor and other stakeholders – that ethical decision-making frameworks need to be used to determine what amounts to “reasonable pressure”.“This is not a means by which to justify any fundraising just because it raises more money. It is an attempt to strike a genuine balance – the needs of the beneficiary have been absent from much of the recent public debate about fundraising and we want to address that”.He argued:1. All fundraising ethics is applied ethics; there is no normative ethics and the profession needs this.2. Any new normative ethics has to balance duties to donors with duties to beneficiaries, yet at present all fundraising ethics are focused on duties to the donor. Advertisement Protecting donors from pressureThe American code of practice says donors must be protected from pressure or coercion.The UK code of practice says donors must not be put under undue pressure. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Fundraising Preference ServiceThe impact of the proposed regulatory framework in the UK following the Etherington review was one of the talking points at this year’s IFC, with fundraisers from dozens of countries keen to learn more about current developments.MacQuillin commented on one of the review’s proposals, the introduction of a Fundraising Preference Service that would enable individuals to opt out of all fundraising communications by any charity, an opportunity unavailable to customers of any other industry. He said:“The risk of not establishing the Fundraising Preference Service is that some people are inconvenienced by receiving too many fundraising requests and some people will feel some kind of guilt about having to decline some, perhaps most, of those requests.“However, the risk of establishing the Fundraising Preference Service is that charities will not be able to raise the money they need to provide services for their beneficiaries and those lives will be seriously inconvenienced.”Rogare is the University of Plymouth’s fundraising think tank. Its remit is to explore under-researched and under-thought areas of fundraising and to generate new practical ideas by pulling together the academic and practitioner branches of the fundraising profession.MacQuillin announced in May 2015 that Rogare was researching the need to address ethics in the fundraising code of practice.

Russian journalist expelled

first_img BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation BelarusEurope – Central Asia News Receive email alerts Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown RSF_en News June 2, 2021 Find out more to go further May 28, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today protested against yesterday’s announced expulsion of Pavel Selin, the Minsk correspondent of the Russian television station NTV, because of an allegedly “tendentious” report on the funeral of a writer opposed to President Alexander Lukashenko. The Belorussian foreign ministry withdrew Selin’s accreditation, banned him from entering the country for five years, and threatened to close NTV’s Minsk bureau if the station does not screen an apology.Coming after the forced temporary closure of at least five independent newspapers in recent weeks, Selin’s expulsion and the threatened closure of the NTV bureau seem to be part of a deliberate policy to eliminate news diversity in Belarus. If the authorities do put an end to NTV coverage in Belarus, they will deprive the public of one of the few easily accessible non-governmental news sources. Reporters Without Borders therefore called on the authorities to reverse their decision and allow Selin to resume working in Belarus and, in general, not to obstruct the work of foreign journalists.The foreign ministry on 27 June asked Selin to explain a report two days before on the funeral of writer Pavel Bykov, in which he said the police deliberately obstructed the 20,000-strong procession and that Bykov’s widow had been stripped of her permission to reside in Minsk. The report also stressed the presence of the red and white flag that was used when Belarus won independence but has since been banned and is now a symbol of opposition to the Lukashenko regime.Selin, who was told yesterday of the interior ministry’s decision to expel him, said the authorities were especially annoyed that he included an interview with Stanislav Shushkevich, Belarus’s first leader after independence, in which he said “Lukashenko was afraid to come to the funeral.”Selin had come under pressure from the authorities in the past about his reporting in Belarus. The foreign ministry announced on 25 April 2002 that it had warned him about a series of reports on repression of the Belorussian opposition. Selin had been summoned to the ministry the day before and asked to deny the truth of the reports and to apologise for their “biased and groundless” content.
