He is one of the most capable Chief Financial Officers I know,” Chief Executive Peter Long said in a statement. “I have specifically asked Paul to remain with the business to see through the full year audit.” Thursday 21 October 2010 3:52 am John Dunne Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Stock market crash: I’d use Warren Buffett’s tips to buy UK shares to get rich in a recovery

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Buying UK shares after the 2020 stock market crash could prove to be a worthwhile long-term move. Indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have a long track record of delivering recoveries after their declines. Meanwhile, investors such as Warren Buffett have previously used market declines to generate high returns in a subsequent rally.As such, by following Warren Buffett’s views on buying high-quality companies at distressed prices and holding for the long term, it is possible to generate strong capital returns in a long-term stock market recovery.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 high-quality UK shares at cheap pricesMany UK shares currently trade at cheap prices after the stock market crash. However, not all of them are likely to make sound investments. For example, investor sentiment may be weak towards businesses that have weak balance sheets or that lack a competitive advantage versus their peers. Such companies may deliver disappointing financial and share price performances even in a stock market recovery.Similarly, some high-quality companies may trade at prices that do not leave investors with a margin of safety. Their stock prices may have rebounded following the market crash so that they trade for what they are worth. Or even for a premium to their intrinsic value. In such scenarios, there may be a lack of scope for capital growth over the long run.As such, following Warren Buffett’s ideas on investing money in high-quality UK shares at cheap prices could be a sound move. In other words, a combination of a high-quality business and a cheap share price can be a buying signal. Although such companies may be relatively hard to find among UK shares at the present time, they may prove to be among the strongest performers in a stock market recovery.Warren Buffett’s long-term approach to investing moneyEven though history suggests that a stock market recovery is likely to take place after the 2020 crash, UK shares may yet experience further challenges in the short run. For example, risks such as the coronavirus pandemic and Brexit are likely to remain in place over the coming months. They may cause investor sentiment to weaken after its recent improvement.Therefore, following Warren Buffett’s lead in taking a long-term approach to investing money could be a sound move. As mentioned, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have always previously recovered from their declines to post new record highs. While it may take some time for this outcome to take place following the 2020 stock market crash, it seems likely to occur in the coming years.Through buying today’s high-quality UK shares at cheap prices, and holding them for many years, it may be possible to follow Warren Buffett and beat the stock market over the long run.

Western Massachusetts bishop delivers testimony to legislative committee

first_imgWestern Massachusetts bishop delivers testimony to legislative committee Posted Jun 20, 2017 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Comments (3) Susan Butler says: Rector Smithfield, NC Director of Music Morristown, NJ [Diocese of Western Massachusetts] Western Massachusetts Bishop Douglas J. Fisher attended a hearing June 19 held by the Massachusetts Legislature’s Joint Committee on the Judiciary that featured testimony on a range of proposed criminal justice reform measures focused on sentencing and correctional services. The following statement is based on Fisher’s prepared testimony and received the support of bishops of the Diocese of Massachusetts, Bishop Alan M. Gates and Bishop Suffragan Gayle E. Harris.Bishops and others from the two Episcopal dioceses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts recently had the opportunity to visit Dismas House in Worcester and Dismas Family Farm in Oakham. The house and the farm are named for the Good Thief in the Gospel of Luke. Dismas is one of two criminals crucified next to Jesus. He asks Jesus to remember him when he enters paradise. Dismas accepts personal responsibility for the wrongs he has committed, yet believes that God can save anyone. His last breath is a leap of faith. One of us also recently had the opportunity to meet with inmates and conduct the Rite of Confirmation at the Devens federal correctional facility. The men we met recently at Dismas Farm and Devens are like Dismas. Many speak honestly about the impact of drugs and alcohol on their lives, their failures to “get clean” or “stay sober.” Most importantly, they acknowledge that their actions have had consequences for society and for those who love them. Those at the farm, they spend their days tending a harvest that will feed the local community. They have the chance to do good again, to feel connected to the needs of others. We experienced men who own their failure but who believe their lives are meant for something better. We experienced hope.The men we met at Dismas were imprisoned for crimes related to drugs and alcohol. Addiction is killing us in the Commonwealth. Instead of sending these people to prison, we need to offer treatment. Some must go to prison for their crimes, but a prison system that reinforces shame, strips away dignity and hope – such a system does not do the good we intend.  Prisons are in need of a deep, cleansing ideological shift. We must seek to reconcile the incarcerated person with the community they have damaged. We need to seek restorative justice which emphasizes the role of the whole community in the reintegration of the offender. Somehow, we’ve made jail an end in itself. Get sent there and that becomes your story. We’ve forgotten that removal from the community is a consequence – not the last chapter in a flawed human being’s story. Restoration to the community must be the end of incarceration whenever possible.We must also ask the legislature to consider the staggering inequity of incarceration by race. Many of us have been deeply affected by our reading of The New Jim Crow, or viewing of the documentary “13th.”  We are striving honestly to examine our own Episcopal Church systems to rid them of the sin of racism; we urge you to do the same as you consider reform of our judicial system.  Racial reconciliation is of ultimate concern to us as people of faith. We ask you to be conscious of our nation’s need to own the mass incarceration of young black and brown men.Our governing bodies have been given power to wield justly and for the good of all people. If we pass the Justice Reinvestment Act, we’ll be able to tell a new story – a story of justice and redemption, a story of second chances and greater safety for our communities. Be assured of our prayers for you and for all leaders in government who strive to respect the dignity of all human beings.The Rt. Rev. Douglas J.

U.N. debates ‘sustainable development goals’ as world crisis grows

first_imgHeads of state attended a United Nations conference in New York City in late April to address Sustainable Development Goals 2030. Another gathering focused on the status of governments’ actions to curb climate change. The SDG program was adopted in 2015 after the Millennium Development Goals lapsed. The MDG set objectives of eliminating poverty and raising incomes beginning in 2000; the deadline was extended 15 years.During the first decade of the 21st century, significant economic growth occurred in leading states in Africa, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific. Rising prices for oil, natural gas, strategic minerals and other commodities produced by so-called “developing countries” fueled profits for transnational corporations and governments in states where these resources were extracted and exported.Income generation in postcolonial and neocolonial states encouraged foreign direct investment in industrial production, technology transfers and greater cooperation among governments in the Global South. Household incomes rose in many regions of Africa, Latin American and the Asia-Pacific.  Political alliances among these states brought forward the Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa Summit (BRICS), the Africa-South America Summit (ASAS) and the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC). The distribution of wealth generated during the new millennium was not equitable. Wealthy social groups arose, while smaller enterprise owners and their workers experienced improvements in living standards.Much debt that had crippled the African continent during the 1980s and 1990s was written off and refinanced, giving the appearance of substantial development that would extend into the future. Further deregulation of the international financial industry provided credit for corporate investments and  household consumption.Rapid economic reversalBy the end of 2010, expansion of the credit-based economy was causing leading investment firms and banks to close. Western capitalist governments and central banks were compelled to bail out financial institutions with trillions of dollars and euros.This phenomenon’s effect in the U.S., Western Europe and China was not immediately apparent to many governments in Africa. Nevertheless, leading capitalist states’ strategic interests conflicted with those of emerging economies.Washington has been emphasizing domestic production of oil and natural gas in the U.S., prompting a precipitous price decline of these major exports in Nigeria, Russia, Venezuela and Brazil. South Africa — where the extraction of gold, diamonds, platinum, iron ore and coal was the engine of growth under the racist settler-colonialist system — witnessed major capital flight and job losses. There was a clear political agenda, too. Imperialists perceived the regional blocs of FOCAC, BRICS and the rejuvenated Non-Aligned Movement as threats to their hegemony in international exchange and the balance of military and economic forces.Zimbabwe President Robert MugabeMugabe says, ‘Stop the sanctions!’At the U.N. High-Level Thematic Debate on Achieving Sustainable Development Goals on April 21, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe criticized imperialism’s economic sanctions that have robbed Zimbabwe of over $42 billion in revenue since the millennium began, hampering the country from reaching the MDGs. He placed the sanctions’ impact in the context of the economic crises facing former colonial and neocolonial countries.Mugabe said an urgent situation faced the majority of the world’s peoples and hoped that “the critical lessons of the Millennium Development Goals will instruct us … particularly on the imperative of moving swiftly from commitments to action, to assure success in our common and individual efforts.”  (Zimbabwe Herald, April 22)Mugabe stressed, “Recent revelations have shone light on the schemes … that deprive governments of huge financial resources which can be channeled towards development.” He called for international cooperation to  stamp out “financial engineering schemes that siphon resources from use for public good.”“For us in Africa,” noted Mugabe, “illicit flows, estimated at $60 billion a year, further hemorrhage the limited financial resources at our disposal. This area needs urgent resolution to ensure that an improvement in domestic resource mobilization efforts contributes to national coffers, and not to lining the pockets of those illegally transferring these resources from our countries.”The U.S. government has been stiffening sanctions against Zimbabwe by prohibiting transactions involving dozens of institutions and individuals as part of an imperialist scheme to interfere in Zimbabwe’s 2018 elections, reported the state-owned Sunday Mail on April 24. The newspaper has uncovered evidence that Washington is blocking Visa and MasterCard usage for all Zimbabweans on a list of “Politically Exposed Persons.”Banks operating in Zimbabwe have been warned of “stiff penalties” for people and institutions that do not carry out the sanctions. In February, Barclays Bank was fined $2.5 million for conducting financial transactions involving Zimbabweans and others on the list.Brazilian President Dilma RousseffDilma Rouseff resoluteBrazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who was subjected to an impeachment vote in the lower house of Congress on April 17, told the international audience at the U.N. climate change conference that she would fight to remain in power.  The attack on her is part of a politically motivated assault on the Workers’ Party in Brazil, which maintains the largest bloc within the legislative body.Rousseff blamed Brazil’s wealthy class for the “illegal attempt” to force her from office. She indicated she would appeal to Mercosur, the regional bloc of South American states, to suspend Brazil if she does not survive a Senate vote in May.  Mercosur’s platform includes a clause which says that if elected governments in member-states are overthrown, they can be suspended from participating in regional meetings, and economic sanctions can be imposed. Paraguay was suspended in 2012.  At a New York press conference, Rousseff said she “would appeal to the democracy clause if there were, from now on, a rupture of what I consider democratic process,” and will fight the “coup” with all her strength.

When she’s not in the newsroom, she enjoys playing sand volleyball with her friends and watching all the cute dog videos on Facebook. + posts Linkedin Twitter printThe Fairmount Neighborhood Association held its annual National Night Out event Tuesday evening to build crime-fighting partnerships.Fort Worth Police, Fire Departments and Fairmount residents attended to discuss issues and concerns in the neighborhood, like the string of car burglaries that occurred from August to mid-September. The chief of police and other public officials also made an appearance.“[National Night Out] is for local residents to find out that our firefighters and police officers are people that they can talk to,” said Geri Cotten, Fairmount Association Director of Safety and captain of Fairmount Citizens on Patrol. She added that it is also a chance for residents to volunteer for organizations like Fairmount Citizens on Patrol and meet their neighbors.Cotten said she had residents add what street they lived on to their name tags in the hopes of making connections between next-door neighbors.“I think the world would be a lot better place if we just went next-door and said hello,” Cotten said.The celebration was centered around chicken Fajitas and drinks, which were supplied by Fairmount Code Blue and the Fairmount Neighborhood Association Representatives. Fairmount residents also brought fruits and desserts, which put big smiles on the faces of the police officers and firefighters. A bounce house and a Fort Worth firetruck provided entertainment and interest to kids, during the night against crime.The Fairmount Neighborhood Patrol Officer Sergio Guadarrama, a familiar face in the community, talked with many attendees.“We do this job because we love helping people. We love interacting with people in the community,” Guadarrama said. “Police are people too, we live in neighborhoods too.” Guadarrama added that events like National Night Out are important in building relationships and trust with the people he helps protect.Guadarrama said he is also active on the Fairmount National Historic District Facebook page. He uses it to inform the neighborhood about trends and crime updates, as well as receive crime information from residents.“Fairmount is special,” Guadarrama said. “They are very active and very vocal as far as the crime and code.”Guadarrma said the recent arrest of the car burglar couldn’t have happened without the community’s help.“The reason he was identified and caught was because of security video footage that was sent to me by multiple residents,” said Guadarrama. “I’ve been pushing for people to get cameras to harden their houses. While it won’t prevent a burglary, it does help us identify these people.”Guadarrma said he hopes this police-resident cooperation continues to help keep Fairmount safe.center_img Good Neighbors Animal Rescue helps hundreds of feral cats and dogs Newest construction plan aims to close parts of Bellaire Drive for pedestrian walkway TCU visiting scholar continues campus conversation on immigration Facebook Twitter Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Haley Harrison Previous articleREC center offers fall break trip to Palo Duro CanyonNext articleFort Worth race and culture task force asks for community input Haley Harrison RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Students concerned about off-campus thefts Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more

 

Murder attempt on journalist over TV report of lynching

first_imgNews Organisation News Dunya TV reporter Hafiz Muhammad Imran Shehzad has just been the target of an apparent murder attempt in Sialkot, in the northeastern province of Punjab, because his coverage of the lynching of two brothers in the presence of police officers in Sialkot, which shocked Pakistani public opinion.Aged 27, Imran has been hospitalised with the injuries he received when he was attacked and badly beaten outside his Sialkot home on 29 August by two men who arrived on a motorcycle.“I did an exclusive report showing the brutality reigning in Sialkot but now I am under threat from those who have been implicated in this case,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “My attackers have just done what they had been threatening to do for days (…) I call on all the organisations that fight for press freedom to protect me against the people who want to kill me because of my report.”Reporters Without Borders urges the Pakistani government, especially federal interior ministry Rehman Malik, to react quickly and give Imran the necessary protection. The organisation also calls on Pakistani TV station executives to discuss how they could protect their reporters, who are increasingly the target of violence.Imran’s report on the lynching of two teenagers by a mob in Sialkot on 15 August included exclusive footage of the incident. The youths were accused of a theft, but Imran showed that the lynching was the result of dispute over a cricket match. The report of the incident, and especially the fact that the police looked on without taking any action, had such an impact that the supreme court has been forced to intervene. Seventeen people, including police officers, have been arrested on murder charges.Speaking by telephone, Imran told Reporters Without Borders he suspected that local police officers were involved in the beating he received, which happened shortly after his report was shown at a supreme court hearing. Following the hearing, Imran was threatened by a man who had just alighted from a police car. Imran had managed to film him giving money to police officers in an attempt to influence their investigation.Most cases of violence against journalists in recent months have involved the employees of privately-owned TV stations, whose influence is growing steadily. Imran Khan of Din News TV, Anwar Kamal of Geo News, Zafarullah Banori of Ary One, Ejazul Haq of City-42 TV, Azmat Ali Bangash of Samaa TV, Malik Arif of Samaa TV and Ashiq Ali Mangi of Mehran TV have all been the targets of violence.The government censored two of the leading TV stations, Geo News and Ary One, last month until a court intervened: http://en.rsf.org/pakistan-broadcasting-of-two-tv-stations-16-08-2010,38… RSF_en News Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire Help by sharing this information PakistanAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Pakistan September 1, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Murder attempt on journalist over TV report of lynchingcenter_img News Receive email alerts to go further Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists PakistanAsia – Pacific Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder June 2, 2021 Find out more April 21, 2021 Find out more January 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

 

Best Markets for Single-Family Rental Investment

first_imgSubscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Best Markets for Single-Family Rental Investment in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, Journal, Market Studies, News, REO With rent prices increasing right alongside home prices in many markets, rental investment can pay serious dividends for those savvy enough to do their homework before they invest. But like the old adage goes, one critical element is “location, location, location.” With that in mind, HouseCanary recently examined the state of rental investment, including single-family, condos, and apartments, to see which markets are hot … and which are not.In order to make that determination, HouseCanary examined year-over-year (YOY) price growth within the top 100 U.S. metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) by population, dividing things into three subcategories: single-family homes, condos, and apartments.So, which MSA featured the highest YOY price growth in the single-family rental (SFR) sector? The Sunshine State should take a bow—not only is Florida home to the top MSA, it also accounts for three of the top 10 entries.Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida, was the MSA featuring the strongest YOY rent price growth for SFR, coming in at 6.6 percent. The other two Florida MSAs that made the top 10 are Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach at 5.8 percent and #5, and Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater at 5.6 percent and #7.Here’s how the rest of the top 10 broke down:Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, Washington—6.1 percent (#2)Stockton-Lodi, California—6.0 percent (#3)Salt Lake City, Utah—5.9 percent (#4)Boise City, Idaho—5.7 percent (#6)Sacramento-Roseville-Arden Arcade, California—5.4 percent (#8)Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, Tennessee—5.4 percent (#9)McAllen-Edinburg-Mission, Texas—5.3 percent (#10)On the other end of the spectrum, here are the 10 MSAs with the lowest YOY rent price growth for SFR, according to HouseCanary.Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News, Virginia/North Carolina—0.4 percent (#100)Harrisburg-Carlisle, Pennsylvania—0.5 percent (#99)Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Connecticut—0.6 percent (#98)Augusta-Richmond County, Georgia/South Carolina—0.8 percent (#97)Rochester, New York—0.9 percent (#96)Little Rock-North Little Rock-Conway, Arkansas—0.9 percent (#95)New Orleans, Metairie, Louisiana—0.9 percent (#94)Columbia, South Carolina—1.0 percent (#93)Syracuse, New York—1.0 percent (#92)Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford, Connecticut—1.1 percent (#91)To see the rest of HouseCanary’s findings, including the results for condos and apartments, click here.
