As the FTSE 100 slumps again, I’d buy this fallen giant’s shares today!

first_imgAs the FTSE 100 slumps again, I’d buy this fallen giant’s shares today! The FTSE 100 (the UK’s main market index) is bouncing up and down like a yo-yo this month. History tells us that share prices often weaken during the summer months, but this market is even more skittish than usual.But then why shouldn’t global share prices be volatile – and even irrational – when investors have so much to worry about? As well as the life-changing impact of the pandemic lockdown, we have fears of a second wave (or rolling waves) of coronavirus cases. And on top of all that, there are concerns about the US-China trade deal falling apart. What times we live in, eh?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 FTSE 100 is an index, not a crystal ballOf course, it’s important to remember that the FTSE 100 is just an index that tracks the ongoing value of its 100+ constituents. What the movements of the FTSE 100 don’t do is tell you anything about the current financial health (and future business success) of any individual member.As billionaire Warren Buffett wisely remarked, “In the short run, [the market] is a voting machine; in the long run, it’s a weighing machine”. What the legendary investor means by this is that stock values can (and will) be volatile and irrational in the short term. But the weight of company earnings will determine long-term share prices.For value investors, time heals all woundsFor me, there seems to be a pattern developing recently. I write about beaten-down FTSE 100 value shares, only for their prices to dive immediately after publication. That said, I know I’m not jinxed, because such superstition is nonsense. All that’s happening is bargain shares I’ve highlighted keep getting progressively cheaper as the wider market lurches downwards.At times like this, I remember another Warren Buffett mantra: “Falling prices are good for buyers”. When shares in quality, well-run FTSE 100 businesses keep getting cheaper, they also become better bargains. When you’re looking at a 10- or 20-year time scale, short-term price movements are easily outweighed by long-term corporate performance.Thus, as an avowed value and high-yield investor, I’m not worried about the FTSE 100’s movements this week, month, or year. I look ahead to a lifetime of delicious dividends with, ideally, some share-price growth thrown in.Can you be sure of Shell?I’ve written about £103bn giant Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) several times during this market crisis. Despite being one of the FTSE 100’s very largest members, Shell shares have been at least as volatile as the wider market. What’s more, they keep getting cheaper.In 2019–20, Shell shares have been on a roller coaster, ranging between a low of 890p on 19 March and a high of 2,647p on 1 July 2019. Shell was worth almost three times as much a year ago as it was during the March depths. That’s bonkers.Certainly, the coronavirus is making it difficult to value shares right now. What’s more, on 30 April, Shell announced a 46% fall in its first-quarter net income and slashed its double-digit dividend yield by two-thirds. Even so, with shares trading at 1,290p, they are almost exactly half where they were a year ago – over £100bn of Shell’s value vanished in 12 months. With the oil price recovering from its March lows, that makes no sense to me. I’d buy FTSE 100 giant Shell today, both for its future dividends and for potential capital growth. 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.

Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal] Every Sunday for the past decade, Canadian Anglicans have offered prayers for “our national indigenous bishop, Mark MacDonald.”For some, perhaps, it is a name that conjures little—another in a list of diocesan and national figures who have little directly to do with their home parish. Others may know MacDonald for his involvement in reconciliation and Indigenous activism, or for his sermons on environmental justice, or his columns in the Anglican Journal—or even for his talent on the acoustic guitar at a gospel jamboree.But MacDonald (and more importantly, the office he holds) is also the most visible example of structural change in a church still struggling to build a more equitable relationship with its First Nations, Inuit and Métis members.“People recognize…that [MacDonald] has this position, and behind him is this big ministry for indigenous peoples,” says Donna Bomberry, who was co-ordinator for indigenous ministries for the Anglican Church of Canada when MacDonald was first appointed to the role in 2007. “He lends himself well to that, brings respect and dignity to that position for our people.”On January 4, 2007, MacDonald made history by becoming the first national bishop representing the interests of all indigenous Anglicans across Canada. Photo: General Synod CommunicationsThe position of National Indigenous Anglican Bishop was created a little more than a decade ago, following a proposal at the 2005 Anglican Indigenous Sacred Circle (the national body that meets triennially to manage the affairs of indigenous Anglicans).Sacred Circle tasked the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples (ACIP) with presenting a “fit and qualified” nominee who was both Indigenous and an Anglican bishop to then-Primate Andrew Hutchison for formal approval. Bomberry recalls that MacDonald, then serving as bishop of Alaska in The Episcopal Church (TEC), was selected because ACIP found his vision for the indigenous Anglican church to be very much in line with their own.“We wanted to realize our Covenant, our Indigenous self-determining church, and we wanted him to help us in that journey,” she says, adding that she is “ever so pleased” he agreed to take on the role. “He’s the point of the wedge leading the way—which can be a difficult position also.”Teresa Mandricks, program associate in the secretariat of the national indigenous Anglican bishop, who was also involved in the interview process, noted that his charismatic, easygoing nature and democratic approach to decision-making was an important factor in choosing him.“He was cool, you know? He just had a charisma…that you know you can just go to him and talk,” she says, remembering the first time she met him, at the 1997 meeting of Sacred Circle.On January 4, 2007, MacDonald made history by becoming the first national bishop representing the interests of all indigenous Anglicans across Canada.The making of an indigenous bishopWhile he now operates out of a corner office in downtown Toronto, and spends his time criss-crossing Canada and the globe, MacDonald’s early years were spent in the small port city of Duluth, Minnesota, where he was born on January 15, 1954.MacDonald recalls his family situation as being “troubled,” and his grandfather’s experience as a residential school survivor cast a long shadow of intergenerational trauma over the future bishop’s childhood. But it also prepared him for the kind of ministry he would spend much of his adult life engaging in.“Those problems [of trauma] aren’t confined to indigenous people,” he says. “There was a lot of alcohol abuse in my family, and that gave me a lot of insight into some of the things that were going on in other people’s situations.”National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald and his ubiquitous acoustic guitar. Photo: Marites SisonMacDonald heard a call to the priesthood while still in his teens, a development he sees as being deeply connected to the experiences he had growing up.“I had a troubled family situation, and a strong feeling that the church could have played a stronger role in my life and others like me,” he recalls. “I had a strong feeling that I wanted to work for the good in people’s lives.”This was amplified by the number of important clergy mentors he encountered while pursuing a bachelor’s degree at the College of St. Scholastica, a Benedictine university in Duluth. A professor named Caroline Schmidt, MacDonald says, “constantly put theology in the context of the prayer of the church.”After graduating from St. Scholastica, he studied at Wycliffe College in Toronto, receiving an MDiv in 1978 and beginning his ministry as a priest in the diocese of Minnesota the next year.Like many young priests, he struggled to discern exactly what he was being called to do. For MacDonald, the answer came while serving as rector at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Portland, Ore. Shortly after he arrived, the parish began to foster an indigenous mission congregation, which MacDonald became priest-in-charge of.When he left St. Stephen’s in 1989, it was to immerse himself completely in ministry to Indigenous people—specifically, the Navajo of the Episcopal Church’s Navajoland Area Ministry at the juncture between Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah.It was here, MacDonald says, that his own indigenous Anglican perspective began to take shape, influenced by the perspectives of the elders around him, whose theology was rooted in an understanding of the gospel and the world that he believes is closer to that of the early church than they are to 20th-century Western Christianity.“The wisdom of Navajo elders gives insight into the gospel stories in a way that is really, really helpful, and very important, I think,” he recalls. “I felt like a was living in the New Testament.”Five years later, though, a job opened up back in Minnesota, and MacDonald felt it was time to go home. In 1997, he put himself forward as a candidate for seventh bishop of Alaska. He was consecrated September 13 of that year, and would spend the next decade based out of Fairbanks, Alaska.“As I said at the time, it’s the only place I could imagine wanting to be bishop, and the only place that I can imagine anyone wanting me to be a bishop,” MacDonald recalls with a chuckle.Toward reconciliation and self-determinationIn the months following the 2005 Sacred Circle, MacDonald was approached by ACIP. Would he be willing to consider standing as a candidate for the new position the Anglican Church of Canada had created?Ruth Kitchekesik (left), deacon of St. Matthew’s Anglican Church in Kingfisher Lake, Ontario, and National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald join the 2015 Walk for Reconciliation. Photo: Marites SisonMacDonald says he knew immediately that, despite the challenges, this was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up.“I felt that there would be great difficulties, but there probably wasn’t anything, missiologically speaking, that was more important and more critical in North America,” he says.Not that this made stepping into the new role easier. Not only was MacDonald faced with the enormous challenge of shaping a completely new episcopate, he also needed to convince his fellow bishops that his work wasn’t a threat to their own.“Not everyone was happy with the creation of the position,” he recalls.Navigating his new role was not just about facing the expectations of his Indigenous constituents, it was also about reassuring his fellow bishops that he would respect their own jurisdictions.He would face this balancing act again and again in the coming years, as he worked to build better ties between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Anglicans.“He’s the go-between,” says Mandricks, describing MacDonald’s position as a leader who must have a foot in both Indigenous and non-Indigenous worlds.This position was vital in the years following 2007. Not only was the indigenous Anglican church breaking a new trail toward the creation of a fully self-determined Indigenous Anglican church, Canadian Anglicans as a whole were wrestling with their church’s colonial history, through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). The commission held its first national event in Winnipeg in 2010, and would hold six more before it released its final report in June 2015.While most of his involvement with the TRC was pastoral, MacDonald says he thinks the commission’s work has done much to raise the profile of Indigenous Anglicans’ struggle for self-determination.“Although we still face a number of the problems and issues that we’ve had all along, we have a very different horizon than we did 10 years ago, and I think that has a lot to do with the TRC.”When asked about the nature of these ongoing issues, MacDonald says a lot of it comes down to institutional racism that manifests itself as a paternalistic attitude toward Indigenous peoples.National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald and his wife, Virginia, at the 2009 Sacred Circle. Photo: Marites Sison“Paternalism is really the source of a lot of the problems that indigenous people have,” he says. “Decisions about them are made far away from them, [and] what most people assume when they see the problems that result from that paternalism is that more paternalism would help.”In attempting to break this cycle, indigenous Anglicans want greater control over their own affairs, and a greater ability to minister to their own people in their own way. MacDonald is optimistic that it’s just a matter of time, in part because of the way he has seen indigenous leadership develop in the time he has been bishop.MacDonald speaks with particular pride of the number of indigenous leaders who have taken their places on the national stage—like Lydia Mamakwa, bishop of the Indigenous Spiritual Ministry of Mishamikoweesh, and Adam Halkett, bishop of Missinippi in the diocese of Saskatchewan.“More has happened in these 10 years than I ever imagined possible,” he says.This year marks the 20th anniversary of MacDonald’s consecration as bishop, and in 2019 he will have been serving the church as an ordained minister for 40 years. So is the Canadian Anglican church’s first National indigenous bishop thinking about slowing down?The answer comes quickly. “I’m too busy thinking about what has to happen in the next few months to think beyond that,” he says. “My dreams are not big enough for what God’s plans are.” New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA last_img read more

Meaningful, moving ways to support veterans this Memorial Day

Please enter your email address here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter We should have a veterans park in Apopka to honor our men and women who served to let them know we appreciate and respect them! Time to create one! Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom “All gave some. Some gave all.” You likely hear that phrase around Memorial Day every year, but do you know its origin? Or what Memorial Day is supposed to mean to the veterans who gave some, the survivors of those who gave all, and the Americans who enjoy continued freedom because of those sacrifices?Americans, it seems, do understand the importance of Memorial Day. A 2015 poll by Rasmussen Reports found 52 percent of those polled viewed Memorial Day as one of the nation’s most important holidays, while 42 percent saw it as at least somewhat important.When Americans first began observing the day in the late 1860s, they were pausing to remember the more than half a million Americans who had died in the then-recently ended Civil War. Today, Memorial Day observances not only remember the sacrifice of the deceased who gave all, but also the thousands of living veterans, many of whom are wounded in body, mind or both.“Amid the celebrations marking the unofficial start of the summer season, it can be difficult to find meaningful ways to observe Memorial Day,” says Jeff Roy, chairman of the board of the Purple Heart Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides counseling, support and advocacy for Purple Heart recipients, and raises funds for programs that support veterans and their families. “But Americans truly do want to express their gratitude to veterans for their many sacrifices. Fortunately, there are many ways they can help make a difference for veterans.”Here are some meaningful ways you can show your support for veterans this Memorial Day:* Help provide a service dog to a veteran with physical disabilities or PTSD. The National Education for Assistance Dog Services (NEADS) provides service dogs for free to qualifying veterans. You can help by making an online donation, sponsor a “doggie dorm” for service dogs in training, raise a puppy who will become a service dog, or become a volunteer. Visit the organization’s website at www.neads.org to learn more.* Donate to the Purple Heart Foundation’s scholarship program, which provides financial support to Purple Heart recipients and their families for college-related expenses like tuition, books, and room and board.* Instead of spending the day indulging in your own cookout, contact the local veterans’ home or veterans’ hospital and volunteer there for the day. Or, you can simply take an hour or two to visit with the residents there and thank them for their service.* Visit the local cemetery and place flags or flowers on the graves of veterans. Contact the cemetery first for their visiting guidelines and to learn where the veterans section is located – many cemeteries have special sections set aside for veterans.* Help ensure veterans make the most of the services available to them. Donate to the Purple Heart Foundation’s National Service Officers Program, which helps pay to place service officers in Veterans Administration facilities across the country. These officers are specially trained to help veterans access the many benefits, programs and services available to them.* If your community sponsors a Memorial Day parade, attending is a great way to show your appreciation and support for veterans – but you can do even more. Prior to the event, contact the parade organizers and find out what veterans groups will be marching in the parade. Offer to donate water, snacks or anything else the veterans may need to make their walk easier and more enjoyable.* Pick up the phone and call the veterans in your life – almost everyone knows at least one person who has served in the military. Perhaps your grandfather served in World War II, the Korean War or Vietnam. You may know someone who has recently returned from serving in the Global War on Terror. Take some time to let those people know you’re thinking of them, and appreciate their service.* Observe the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30. Established by Congress, the one-minute observance is an chance for all Americans to pause in the middle of their summer celebrations to remember the sacrifices of the nation’s veterans.From simple and small to noble and industrious, it’s possible to find many meaningful ways to honor all who gave some and the some who gave all. And as for that now-famous phrase – it was first uttered by Howard William Osterkamp of Dent, Ohio, a Korean War veteran and recipient of the Purple Heart.center_img 1 COMMENT Please enter your comment!

AIA Investigates Home Design Trends in Second Quarter

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/430421/aia-home-design-trends-survey-for-second-quarter-of-2013-released Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/430421/aia-home-design-trends-survey-for-second-quarter-of-2013-released Clipboard CopyThe AIA Home Design Trends Survey is out for the second quarter of 2013. Since early 2012, business conditions have steadily been trending upwards, and within the past year alone, residential architects have reported a recovery in nearly every residential construction sector. Taking into consideration the “strong levels of inquiries for new projects, the growing levels of project backlogs, and the uniformly strong readings from firms across all regions of the country,” workloads for residential architects are predicted to stay strong for the next quarters and future market conditions will only improve.For more on the AIA’s findings, keep reading.  Save this picture!Courtesy of AIAAs the economy took a turn for the worse, homes shrank in size and special function rooms – such as outdoor living spaces, mud rooms, in-law suites, and safe rooms – suffered. Now that home sizes are growing again, interest in special function rooms is reemerging. Spaces that have grown in popularity over the past year are outdoor living areas and rooms as well as mud rooms or drop zones, a direct result of increased enthusiasm for outdoor living. Save this picture!Courtesy of AIAThe largely aging population of the US has also heavily impacted the popularity of certain home features and systems. For multiple-floor homes, a master bedroom and full bath on the ground floor are generally desired, as well as ramps or on-grade entry (rather than steps) to enter homes, a home elevator to move between floors, easy-to-use home features (such as door handles and faucets) and non-slip floor surfaces. Accommodations to house multiple generations in one home, going hand-in-hand with these specifications, are also on the rise. Independent of age, energy efficiency remains a popular demand in homes this quarter, making extra insulation a smart, cost-effective option. Hurricane resistant designs, even in areas where they are not required, have also seen an increase as our climate changes and storms are more common and severe.  Save this picture!Courtesy of AIAAs for new technologies in the home, wireless telecommunications/data systems have been at the top of the list for several years and still are. Energy management systems are also gaining popularity as homeowners seek to remotely manage basic households systems such as lighting, temperature, and security controls. Interests in backup power generation systems and electrical docking stations for cars are also increasing and the latter is expected to mushroom as electrical cars become more widely used.  Save this picture!Courtesy of AIAAs business conditions improve, residential firms have been able to slowly rebuild project backlogs. Firms were averaging 4.2 months of work in-house during the second quarter, about 1.5 months more than they averaged in mid-2010. Billings at residential architecture firms have increased in all four major regions of the US, though the Midwest and West have seen the most increase. Virtually all sectors of construction have also now recovered.

The purpose of the lateral walls is to gain privacy and approach the concept of shared wall limits.Save this picture!EschemeSave this picture!Lateral View 1VOLUMETRY – PROGRAMThe Project is synthesized with inverted casetonado that rests in two partitions of reinforced concrete which form the sides, achieving a portico that surrounds the central space of the house.This doble high space, in ground floor, is delimited with a volume of brick seen that encloses the main room and the toilette.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianOn the upper floor, the L-shaped mezzanine is composed of two guest bedrooms and a study which faces the double height.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe concrete walls come out towards the front and hold a metal skin at each end. Like an exterior curtain, it separates from the facade in double height and creates a transition space in the access, a green entry hall.Save this picture!Section 2Save this picture!Second Floor PlanThe privacy of this facade is protected by a low wall that seems to float hiding a tropical patio.
