Eurozone OKs bailout fund

first_img EUROZONE countries have agreed in principle to put aside €500bn (£421m) to set up a permanent bail-out fund, finance ministers said yesterday. The bloc had long planned to replace its current €440bn stability fund with a long-term facility, which expires in 2013, in a bid to settle the ongoing sovereign debt worries throughout the Eurozone.The early-stage agreement between Eurozone finance ministers, who consulted with the rest of the EU member countries, could pave the way for the new scheme to start before 2013. Head of the Eurogroup of finance ministers, Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, said yesterday that struggling countries will be able to borrow the full €500bn if necessary – double the effective €250bn lending limit of the interim fund. He added that the size of the fund, named the European Stability Mechanism, will be reviewed at least every two years. French finance minister Minister Christine Lagarde suggested the interest rates paid by countries using the fund could vary depending on the member state’s financial track record, though she warned that the details are yet to be finalised.The IMF has also agreed in principle to provide cash for the fund.

first_img FA targets gambling cash with ‘fair return’ proposal The English Football Association (FA) has set out proposals to introduce a levy on bets to in order to draw more money from the gambling sector and help fund development of the sport at grassroots level. Martin Glenn, chief executive of the FA, revealed the plans during an interview with the Telegraph, saying that such a move could push funding for the body’s ‘Football Foundation’ initiative past £100m (€112.7m/$128.1m). Glenn said the FA, Premier League and government currently commit £64m to the project, which supports grassroots football initiatives across the country. The FA had expected the sale of Wembley Stadium to boost funds, but after the £600m deal involving American Shahid Khan fell through earlier this month, it is now seeking other sources of income, with gambling seemingly top of the hit list. Gambling has a huge affiliation, with nine out of 20 teams in the Premier League having shirt sponsorship deals in place with gambling firms, while 17 clubs in the second-tier Championship have similar agreements. “There are things definitely worthy of consideration,” Glenn told the newspaper. “France has effectively a tax on gambling. We would call it a fair return on football gambling.” “All those betting companies use our intellectual property to have people lay bets, so why wouldn’t a small percentage of that be put into the thing that made that possible in the first place? We, as football, could approach government and say ‘Have you thought about something like that?” Glenn’s comments are similar to those made by senior executives at some of the major sports leagues in the US in regards to so-called ‘integrity fees’. Since the repeal of PASPA earlier this year, some leagues have been calling for states that legalise sports betting to feature a clause in legislation whereby the leagues would receive a cut of wagering revenue, in return for the gambling companies taking bets on their respective competitions. However, the leagues are yet to convince any state to adopt this approach, with West Virginia recently snubbing NBA, MLB and PGA Tour proposals. Glenn said that the fee operators could face in the UK “doesn’t need to be a big lump sum” but it would be “brilliant” if the FA were able to increase budgets for grassroots football. He said: “We’ve got £64m going into the Football Foundation between the three of us – imagine if it was £80m or £100m. If we could get to that it would be brilliant.” Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: UK & Ireland Funds would be used to support football’s development at grassroots levelcenter_img Topics: Finance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 26th October 2018 | By contenteditor Financelast_img read more

first_img Enter Your Email Address There are stacks of top dividend-paying UK shares that are too good to miss following the stock market crash. I’m not tempted to plough my hard-saved cash into British Land Company (LSE: BLND) though.British Land carries a chunky 3.7% dividend yield for 2020. The retail property owner reinstated the dividend earlier this month and vowed to pay out 80% of underlying earnings per share, beginning in November. But this isn’t a UK share I think income chasers shouldn’t touch with a bargepole.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 profits outlook for Britain’s physical retailers is in tatters thanks to Covid-19 and the threat of a hard Brexit. According to the Local Data Company, the number of net shop closures on these shores hit 6,001 in the first half of 2020. This was a new record high and double the number recorded in the same 2019 period.Under pressureShopping centre and retail park owner British Land faces an additional obstacle in the form of rocketing e-commerce volumes. And this is a problem that threatens to continue clouding its trading outlook for much longer than Covid-19. On top of this, the UK share also faces a significant drop in demand for its office space as homeworking takes off.I can’t help but think that the recent decision to resurrect dividends will be nothing more than temporary cause for cheer for its beleaguered shareholders. Okay, British Land raised £245m through retail asset sales during the first half of 2020. And as I type today it has ample undrawn facilities and cash to draw upon.But in my opinion British Land faces far too many profits headwinds, a situation that threatens its ability to keep paying out bulky dividends in the long term. Plans to scale back its retail estate won’t be enough to salvage the investment case given the uncertain outlook for its other properties. This is why I’d much rather invest in Babcock International (LSE: BLND), another UK share with inflation-bashing yields.A better UK share to buy todayPlenty of people are lining up to predict that global defence spending will drop following the Covid-19 crisis. They reckon world governments will slash their budgets on fears of a severe economic downturn. The evidence in recent weeks suggests that the opposite is the case, however.In early October news emerged that Japanese lawmakers were seeking to hike defence expenditure to record levels. Since then it’s been announced that Sweden is looking to hike spending by 40% between 2021 and 2025 too. This would represent the biggest hike for 70 years and is designed to combat a perceived rising threat from Russia.With the global arms race hotting up it appears as if defence contractor Babcock International has little to worry about. The FTSE 100 firm is the second biggest hardware provider to the Ministry of Defence, an established giant on the geopolitical stage. Consequently I think this UK share, which yields a chubby 3.9% for 2020, will remain a top dividend share for years to come.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Featured Jobs & Calls Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Dianne Lowe says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Posted Jul 11, 2012 In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC July 12, 2012 at 10:59 am Thanks to techonology we all have access to your wonderful sermon! Many thanks for your honesty, clarity and hope! [ooyala code=”k3OXhjNTrPssyxerv0CTqusJbqQ-aWDc”] [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] The following sermon was presented July 11 by the Rev. Stephanie Spellers at the 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, meeting in Indianapolis IN through July 12.Pray Like You Mean ItHomily for Community Eucharist at the Episcopal General Convention (July 11, 2012)By the Rev. Stephanie Spellers(Sung) Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me. Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me.Melt me, mold me, fill me, use me. Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me.If you want to know what Anglicans believe, hear how we pray. Well, we just prayed, “Give us grace, following the teaching and example of thy servant Benedict, to walk with loving and willing hearts in the school of the Lord’s service.” It’s a beautiful prayer. I sure hope we meant it.Benedict of Nursia came on the scene in 6th century Italy, when corruption had saturated the church. Even monastics were kind of doing their own thing, indistinguishable from the culture at large.Faith didn’t change anyone, and it didn’t cost you anything. It was like the man in this morning’s gospel, the one who decided one fine day, “I’m building a tower” – even though he had no idea what it cost, what sacrifice he would bear. In Benedict’s day, people took on the name Christian, but had zero interest in bearing the cross and being transformed into Jesus’ people. Imagine that.The Rev. Stephanie Spellers preaches at the convention Eucharist on July 11. Photo/Janet KawamotoBut Benedict wanted to be a Christian. He wanted Jesus to melt him, mold him, fill him and use him, and he wanted to be surrounded by companions who would hold and prod him through that change. So he founded a new monastic community, a “school for the Lord’s service” shaped by three commitments. They were – please join me in some Latin call and response – stabilitas, obedientia, conversatio morum. Let’s break it down:Stabilitas: is stability, or sticking with your community. Obedientia: obedience, obeying the authority of the community and of God. And finally the commitment toward which everything else pointed: conversatio morum. It’s an untranslatable phrase that means something like committing to this rule, bearing the cross, embracing The Other, and trusting that God is working this out, using all this to convert, confound, transform and ultimately bless you.That’s following the teaching and example of Benedict. Do we really mean to pray that?I’m a textbook Generation Xer, so I’ve never been much for stability, even less for obedience. Up to 12 years ago, I was still wandering from church to sangha to fellowship. And when I found this body, I found you. I found so much that I had longed for, and plenty I never would have asked for and now can’t imagine living without. A table where Jesus lives, not in memorium but incarnate. A liturgy that still vibrates with the rhythms of the ancient ordo. A theological tradition that makes sense to me here, here and here. A vowed life as a priest, obedient to the church’s and God’s calling.I love this church. It’s easily the longest committed relationship I have ever been in. My mom drove up last night from Kentucky, and I’m sure she’ll be standing at the back to thank all of you. The Episcopal Church has given me stabilitas and obedientia, and I know that my salvation depends on the conversion that God is working out in me right here with you. Thank you for that.But if my Baptist mama drove all this way; if you, my church family, have actually gotten up for the second to last Convention Eucharist, then I have to be honest and tell you the rest of the story.And what I have seen is, we love to pray these commitments, and we like to live them – as long as they don’t change us too much.Want to test that theory? Benedict would point to hospitality. In his Rule, he wrote: “Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ, for He is going to say, ‘I came as a guest, and you received Me.’” Benedict told his monks to offer prayers and praises when anyone arrives at the door, especially the poor and dishonored. Send the abbot, send the guest brother, send the whole community to bow and wash that guest’s feet.And when you do, he said, remember this: you’re not just blessing them. This discipline is about you: you moving out to meet The Other, you being humble and stretched, you being converted and blessed by God. If you’re truly rooted in Christ, if you’re obedient to his commandments, if you have surrendered to the mystery of conversatio morum, you will receive Christ as The Other, you will be changed.Throughout this Convention, we have prayed and proclaimed our desire to seek and serve Christ in all persons, to welcome emerging generations and cultures. Did we mean to pray that? Do we want the conversion that hospitality entails?I pray that we do. Because right now, here’s what our legendary welcome sounds like: “The Episcopal Church Welcomes You. We’re so glad you’re here! Now, this is the Book of Common Prayer. Obey it. This is our musical tradition. Master it. This is our English heritage. Adopt it. This is our sense of order. Assimilate it. And the gifts from your home culture, your young culture, your lower-class culture? Would you leave them at the door and pick them up on your way out? They’re not quite Episcopal enough.”I do not think we mean to be unkind or unwelcoming. I think we love what we have received and the most natural thing in the world is to share it with others in that very form. I think we are afraid that opening to two-way transformation with The Other could shatter or simply erase the foundations of our Episcopal identity.Benedict would say this is not so. To be Christian is to engage in a dance. To be Anglican is to engage in a dance. Stabilitas keeps us anchored, holding fast to what is holy and true. Conversatio morum makes us free to say, “Here is the way we have known Jesus. May this path bless you. How have you known him? What song sounds like God to you? What dream has the Spirit whispered to you in your ear? I am confused, I am scared. But I embrace this dying and rising, this sacrifice and blessing, this transformation into the fullness of Christ. And, I embrace you.”The prayer to be like Benedict will shatter our well-drawn boundaries, it breaks our hearts, it grows our capacity to love and to fail, and sends us humble as beggars into the arms of Jesus and the arms of the stranger. It is a dangerous prayer. Pray it anyway. And then watch out. God might just give you what you prayed for. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS July 17, 2012 at 3:34 pm As a person searching for an Episcopal church home, Rev. Spellers inspires me to thinik that the Episcopal Church is “dying” even while it is being reborn to meet the spiritual needs of the 21st century. Change is NECESSARY and REQUIRED or death will surely follow. Since Christ is the head of the Body, the Spirit of Christ will determine what changes are needed not our comfort zones or fondness of and security in tradition. If parish guests are giving feedback as to why they feel unwelcome, their concerns should be taken seriously. It is an opportunity to practice the radical hospitality that Christ modeled for us. Youth Minister Lorton, VA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books July 12, 2012 at 3:08 pm Rev Steph is a dear friend and my long-time Priest in Boston, and seeing her sermon up there at General Convention touched my heart. I am among many near and far who continue to keep the Rule of Life of the Crossing (Boston) community, which welcomed many of us into the Anglican tradition in new, ancient and beautiful ways. Kieran Conroy says: July 12, 2012 at 6:04 am Thank you, Rev. Spellers! I wish I had still been there to hear you preach these words in person. I’m glad I read it. I can relate with you, especially on this point: “The Episcopal Church has given me stabilitas and obedientia, and I know that my salvation depends on the conversion that God is working out in me right here with you.

The goal of the new Director of Checkoff Programs at Indiana Pork is to hit the state and converse with Hoosiers. Jeanette Merritt just joined the pork producers this month and she said her initial focus is making county visits to explain the importance of pork production to Indiana agriculture.“We have a great livestock team in Indiana partnering with soybean and beef and pork and poultry that have worked with a lot of our county agencies,” she said. “I want to do some work on the consumer level to tell them why it’s ok to have a barn in your neighborhood or your county, why farmers take care of their animals and why farmers are stewards of the land. So that’s going to be a big focus of what I do along with just telling the story of Indiana livestock farmers.”Merritt is no stranger to Indiana agriculture having just come from the Indiana Wine Grape Council, previously working as a farm broadcaster with our own Gary Truitt, and she comes from families steeped in agriculture. She told HAT the pork job is a good fit.“Indiana wine was great. I had an opportunity to work in an industry that is a valuable part of agri tourism, but when the opportunity arose to move to pork it felt like coming home. My husband and I are 4th generation hog farmers on my family farm in Miami County and I’m very interested in making sure that there is a future for my kids to come back and farm. So coming to Indiana Pork felt like a natural fit. The livestock industry is ripe for expansion in the state, and they need someone to be a spokesman for the industry. And it felt like something I was supposed to do.”She is also a director for the Indiana Soybean Alliance, a position she will retain even with the new job.“I sit on the executive committee there and have loved all 6 years of it, and being able to serve Indiana soybean farmers is a passion of mine as well.”Merritt has one more year in her current term and hopes to be re-elected to a final term this fall.
