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. Royston Wild | Sunday, 14th June, 2020 Image source: Getty Images Financial markets remain turbulent, and it’d be foolhardy to expect them to remain anything but jumpy for the rest of 2020. Does that mean that FTSE 100 investors should retreat into the woods with their cash? Not for a second.I myself have built a portfolio of a dozen equities (including a variety of Footsie-listed shares) in a Stocks and Shares ISA. I don’t plan to stop investing in UK companies even in spite of the pandemic, either. Failing to max out the £20,000 annual allowance, thereby keeping your hard-won returns away from the mitts of the taxman, is akin to looking a gift horse in the mouth. If you have the capital to invest, well, why not continue to invest it?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…Cash crushes returnsIt’s been clear for months that the coronavirus crisis will have significant ramifications on the global economy for much of this new decade. But this is no reason to stop buying into FTSE 100 stocks. Remember that the key to successful investing it to buy with the aim of holding your equities for anything from 10 years to indefinitely.Studies show that investors with a long-term strategy like this can expect to make average annual returns of between 8% and 10% per annum. This is even when accounting for economic downturns like this one. Sure, you can choose to lock your money up in a cash account where your deposits aren’t affected by choppy movements on financial markets. However, the paltry returns there almost aren’t worth bothering with.According to comparethemarket.com, the best-paying instant-access Cash ISAs are operated by Al Rayan Bank and Ecology Building Society. The rates they have to offer sit at a paltry 1.1%. Is this likely to make the sort of returns that’ll help you get rich and enjoy a comfortable retirement? Unlikely, in my opinion.FTSE 100 royaltyIt’s important to remember that, even for those investors with a low tolerance towards risk, that there remains a wealth of brilliant FTSE 100 shares to choose from today.Take the utilities providers, for example. A cooling economy will naturally reduce overall energy consumption and thus revenues at National Grid and SSE. But largely speaking their profits should remain immune to broader conditions in the near term. And over a longer time horizon they should grow thanks to their ongoing commitment to expansion. These shares offer dividend yields of 5.5% and 6% respectively and this makes them worthy of serious attention, in my book.Food and beverages producers are also reliable stocks in times of recession. This is why I am confident to continue owing FTSE 100 royalty Unilever and Diageo in my own personal portfolio. Their jam-packed stable of popular labels offering another layer of security, too.One safe-haven share from the Footsie I have my eye on today is Polymetal International. The gold producer boasts a rock-bottom price-to-earnings ratio of 10 times for 2020 and a monster 5.5% dividend yield. This is possibly the ultimate blue-chip share for investors worried about a prolonged economic downturn, given the bright outlook for gold prices.The difficult economic environment means that investors really do need to do their homework before taking the plunge. It doesn’t mean that they need to pull the plug on their investment decisions, though. With the right strategy it’ll still possible to make very decent returns.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The global economy faces a period of significant upheaval following the Covid-19 outbreak. But it hasn’t discouraged me from buying UK shares in my Stocks and Shares ISA.There remains a galaxy of great stocks that investors can expect to make a fortune from in the near term and beyond. Even the most pessimistic of share pickers can be confident when buying UK shares.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…They can buy healthcare providers like drugs makers and surgery developers, utilities providers and electricity generators, food producers and drink manufacturers, to give just a few examples. The list of sectors which enjoy stable earnings during economic upturns and downturns is vast.Go defensive!Defence stocks are also some of the best stress-free options for nervous investors. History shows us that even if arms budgets suffer during tough economic times, weapons spending always comes roaring back. It’s an unfortunate by-product of man’s everlasting desire to do wreak war with itself.That said, I don’t expect defence spending to suffer nearly as badly as during previous economic downturns, if at all. Why? The geopolitical landscape is the most febrile it’s been for decades, and Western nations particularly fear increasingly-hawkish foreign policy from China and Russia in particular.There’s also significant economic upheaval in the Middle East, the growing threat of global terrorism, and the rising fight against state-sponsored cyber attacks to contend with.A news story that caught my eye this week perfectly illustrates my opinion. Despite the economic upheaval caused by Covid-19, the Japanese defence ministry has applied for a ninth straight yearly increase for its arms budget. At a proposed $52bn this would be the biggest bill on record. It has been put forward as Japan grapples with a growing perceived threat from China and North Korea.Top UK shares that could make you richTotal worldwide weapons spend rose at its fastest for around a decade in 2019, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. Japan’s fresh plans suggest the global arms race isn’t about to cool down any time soon either.This is why defence stocks remain top buys for those nervous of the social, macroeconomic and geopolitical implications of the Covid-19 pandemic. And UK share investors have plenty of manufacturers to choose from. Diversified players like FTSE 100 giants BAE Systems and Babcock International Group are terrific buys for share pickers, I believe. And particularly at current prices as these UK shares trade on forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios of 10 times or below.There’s also other great niche players to pick from right now. Companies like Avon Rubber, a major maskbuilder for militaries and security forces, or countermeasures and sensors manufacturer Chemring Group. UK shares like these show that investors can still expect to make terrific returns despite the severe global downturn.

Image source: Getty Images Covid-19 vaccine: 1 biotech stock that profits from AstraZeneca’s success Zaven Boyrazian | Tuesday, 24th November, 2020 | More on: AZN OXB Enter Your Email Address 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. AstraZeneca (LSE:AZN) announced the results of its phase 3 Covid-19 vaccine trials yesterday which is excellent news for one particular biotech stock.A new Covid-19 vaccine from AstraZenecaThe trial results were positive, but the AstraZeneca share price barely moved on the news. The muted response is likely attributable to the company’s ‘no profit’ policy for its vaccine launch. The vaccine, AZD1222, was tested using two separate dosing regimens.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 first dosing regimen consisted of a half then full dose one month apart and showed a 90% efficacy. Patients in the second dosing regimen received two full doses one month apart and showed a 62% efficacy. The combined results showed a 70% overall effectiveness.While this would be considered a breakthrough a few months ago, in comparison to the 95% efficacy of Pfizer’s and Moderna’s vaccines, AZD1222 appears underwhelming. However, it has a distinct advantage over both.The vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna require cold storage conditions of -70°C, and -20°C, respectively. AstraZeneca’s vaccine can be stored for up to six months at a temperature of 2°C–8°C.Maintaining sub-freezing temperatures in transit is a complicated and expensive process, making the availability of the vaccine in poorer nations minimal. By not requiring less demanding storage temperatures, AZD1222 may prove to be the most viable vaccine candidate for mass distribution.A biotech stock opportunityThe vaccine was developed and manufactured with help from Oxford Biomedica (LSE:OXB) as part of a supply agreement signed in September. I’ve discussed the biotech stock in previous articles. As a quick reminder, Oxford Biomedica is a gene and cell therapy group. It offers a proprietary platform, LentiVector, that allows pharmaceutical companies to develop new drugs at a significantly reduced cost.The supply agreement is active for 18 months. The biotech company is responsible for the manufacturing of AZD1222 until the end of 2021 unless the contract is extended.Initially, the firm received an upfront payment of £15m from AstraZeneca. It expects to generate an estimated £35m from this contract alone by the end of 2021. This represents a huge growth opportunity for the company. The combined £50m revenue represents nearly 80% of the total revenue achieved in 2019 pre-Covid-19.With this added boost and the continual growth of its LentiVector platform, I’ve forecasted total revenue for 2021 to be in the £100m–£120m range – almost double what it is today.However, it is essential to remember that this additional revenue is only temporary and may cease to exist after 2021. Still, it does grant a significant boost in available capital for the business to reinvest and increase the value of its platform for its clients.The bottom lineAstraZeneca’s noble non-profit stance is a social victory. However, Oxford Biomedica is the real financial beneficiary of AZD1222’s successful trials. The Covid-19 vaccine still requires regulatory approval, but AstraZeneca has already begun the filing process with multiple regulatory bodies around the world.center_img 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.

first_img Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Director of Music Morristown, NJ This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 [Episcopal News Service] Estados Unidos y Canadá pueden estar separados por una frontera, pero los nativoamericanos de ambos lados de ella comparten una pavorosa realidad: su tasa de suicidios sobrepasa la de la población general.En tal medida que “recientemente tuvimos una consulta internacional con personas de Estados Unidos y Canadá aquí en Six Nations [la reserva indígena de Seis Naciones Iroquesas]”, cerca de Brantford, Ontario, según el Rvdmo. Mark MacDonald, obispo para los indígenas de toda la nación de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá.“Sabemos que existe una frontera oficial entre nosotros, pero estamos tratando con muchos de los mismos problemas”, dijo. “En términos generales, hay una tasa mucho más elevada de suicidios entre la población indígena de Norteamérica que en la población en general (véase un artículo relacionado aquí) y las causas son muchas y complejas”.Por ejemplo, dijo MacDonald: “todas las personas presentes en esta reunión internacional se han visto afectadas por un suicidio de una manera íntima y personal, de manera que se trata de una impresión que nunca desaparece. Siempre está ahí y es una martirizante realidad para la mayoría de los indígenas”.“Cuando un suicidio ocurre en una familia, a una familia, [sus miembros] se quedan callados”, según dice el Rdo. Norman Casey, rector de la parroquia de Seis Naciones [Parish of Six Nations] y miembro de la nación micmac, de Quebec.“Lo ocultan, no saben cómo reaccionar, no saben cómo expresarlo. Es el tipo de tragedia que te hace pasar a la clandestinidad, y queremos cambiar esa actitud, ayudar a la gente a recuperarse, y la única manera de hacerlo es hablar sobre el tema, poder llorar por eso, lograr que la comunidad los acoja”.Pasar del silencio a participar en la conciencia de la prevención y de las asociaciones comunitarias conlleva un intenso dolor, pero es el camino para recuperarse”, dijo Casey.“Queremos llegar a un punto donde las personas puedan hablar sobre esto. Ciertamente lastima y resulta difícil. Pero, si podemos lograr que las personas se sinceren y conversen, eso ayudará a aliviar a algunos del dolor y podemos percibir que de eso brotan algunas cosas buenas”.En Seattle: expresándose, tomando concienciaEl día antes de que le pusiera fin a su vida, James, de 18 años y su madre Elsie Dennis llenaron juntos sus solicitudes de becas universitarias.“Sin embargo, en lugar de ir al desayuno de graduandos [de la Escuela Superior] y tomarse la foto con sus compañeros de curso, tuvimos un funeral y un oficio de entierro para él. Fue devastador”, dijo Dennis, asesora de comunicaciones de la Oficina del Ministerio Indígena de la Iglesia Episcopal que vive en Seattle.La última foto de Elsie con su hijo James, de 18 años, quien le puso fin a su vida en junio de 2013. Eso fue el 7 de junio de 2013, y todavía estamos estupefactos. Pero también queremos ayudar a otros y ayudar a otras familias a comunicarse. Si podemos evitar que una persona se suicide, podríamos considerarnos exitosos”, afirmó.Luminaria en memoria de James en la caminata ‘Salir de las Tinieblas’ que tuvo lugar en Seattle en junio.Ella aboga porque haya liturgias y oraciones para los “sobrevivientes de pérdidas” como ella y su familia, y ha recaudado dinero para crear conciencia de prevención a través de la caminata “Salir de las Tinieblas” de la Fundación Americana para la Prevención del Suicidio (AFSP) que tuvo lugar en Seattle en junio.El objetivo principal “es eliminar el estigma de la enfermedad mental y del suicidio”, dijo Dennis. “Quiero que las personas reciban ayuda porque el suicidio es prevenible y mientras ese estigma se mantenga, las personas se sentirán muy indecisas y evitarán buscar ayuda”, agregó.Carol Gallagher, obispa auxiliar de Montana, dijo que la toma de conciencia para prevenir el suicidio se incluye entre los materiales para la Colaboración Nativa de los Obispos (BNC), un programa de preparación para clérigos nativoamericanos dentro de la Iglesia Episcopal, y también con Bisonte Blanco [White Bison], una agencia de recuperación y bienestar sin fines de lucro asociada la Oficina del Ministerio Indígena.“Una de nuestras esperanzas es ofrecerles papeles de liderazgo positivo a nuestros jóvenes y encontrar formas de ayudarlos a aprender los instrumentos que podrían necesitar para trascender los sitios tenebrosos donde parece no haber ni esperanza ni futuro… echando a un lado la vergüenza y dando testimonio de cómo Dios nos acoge a pesar de esas cosas por las que podríamos sentirnos avergonzados o fracasados”, dijo Gallagher, un chéroqui, que también es obispo misionero de la BNC.Dennis, miembro de la nación shuswap, se pregunta qué llevó a su hijo James a quitarse la vida, ya que él no pidió ayuda ni buscó consejo.Aunque las tasas de suicidio son “elevadas para la juventud nativa en la reserva”, la familia de Dennis vivía fuera de la reserva y ella imagina que “era difícil para [James] ser un joven nativo y tratar de adaptarse [a su entorno]. Es como tener los pies puestos en dos mundos, el mundo anglosajón y el mundo nativo y tratar de encajar y vivir en ambos”.Ella cree que él, al igual que otros que contemplan el suicidio, resistió el mayor tiempo posible. Cada día se vive en las tinieblas. Creo que James resistió tanto como pudo, hasta el último día de su último año de secundaria; pienso que lo hizo por mí y por su papá”.Standing Rock: vigilante y proactivoEl Rdo. John Floberg, canónigo misionero para la comunidad de la Iglesia Episcopal en la Reserva Sioux de Standing Rock, en Dakota del Norte, dijo que siete u ocho suicidios el año pasado han incrementado la vigilancia porque “con frecuencia no recibimos muchas señales de advertencia”. El número de suicidios fue “muy traumático” para la comunidad de unas 8.000 personas. “Siempre está en la pantalla de nuestro radar”, dijo Floberg. “El horror de eso se ha silenciado, y es algo horrible que está teniendo lugar”.Hace unos pocos años, él se estaba preparando para asistir al funeral de su sobrino de 17 años —que se había quitado la vida— cuando advirtió lo que sonaba como ideas suicidas en la página de Facebook de una joven de la reserva.“De manera que, mientras me dirigía en el auto al funeral de mi sobrino, me puse en contacto telefónico con algunas personas para que fueran e intervinieran, y se llegaran a su casa, y lograran algún contacto físico con ella o con uno de los padres o un tutor”, contó. “Si tengo la sospecha de que alguien [algún joven] está contemplando el suicidio, busco un adulto que se ponga de inmediato en contacto con él [o ella]. No los dejaríamos solos a menos que puedan decirnos que están en un lugar donde se sienten seguros y no tienen planes de hacerse ningún daño.“Si un joven no puede prometer eso, entonces tomamos las siguientes medidas, o vamos al salón de emergencia donde pueden ser atendidos por un médico o a una instalación sanitaria para abordar lo que está pasando, pero no se lo dejamos a la casualidad”, apuntó.Asociaciones comunitarias con consejeros escolares, asistentes sociales y otras [entidades o personas] intervienen en los empeños para prevenir el suicido, añadió. Si un suicidio se consuma, “el terapeuta nos llamará para trabajar mano a mano con los consejeros, a sabiendas de que muchísimos chicos y chicas tienen conexiones con nosotros a través de nuestro ministerio de los jóvenes. Con frecuencia, somos los primeros en acudir al lado de menores que están lidiando con el suicidio de otra persona”.Conforme a su experiencia, el suicidio “no se basa en un incidente. A veces se basa en una serie de incidentes a lo largo de toda la vida. Lo que sucedió en el pasado que no llegó a resolverse. Es la sensación de que eso nunca va acabarse y el suicidio se convierte en un modo de terminar las cosas”.Siempre que un suicidio se consuma, Floberg busca inmediatamente a los amigos íntimos de esa persona, por las dudas, dice, añadiendo: “queremos intervenir”. ‘Los suicidios son incesantes’Unas pocas semanas después de que la Rda. Nancy Bruyere se convirtiera en coordinadora de tiempo parcial del Programa de Prevención de Suicidios para el Ministerio Indígena de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá, una prima suya se quitó la vida.Eso fue en junio de 2013 y Bruyere aún no puede reprimir las lágrimas. En el curso de los últimos meses, “hemos tenido dos suicidios y uno de ellos en mi propia familia”, dijo.“Mi propio sobrino —tenía sólo 25 años. En verdad nos dejó pasmados. Ninguno de nosotros esperaba que él hiciera algo así— y luego otro hombre joven, exactamente una semana después. Los suicidios son incesantes”.Bruyere, de 54 años y de la nación ojibwe, que intentó suicidarse en dos ocasiones cuando joven, dijo que, si bien “puedo relacionarlo con los sentimientos de desesperación, depresión, vergüenza…” insiste en crear conciencia y ofrecer esperanza.“Aunque a la gente no le gusta hablar del suicidio, debemos empezar a hablar de eso”, señaló. “Uno de los temores, creo yo, es que si comienzas a hablar de eso, más personas intentarán hacerlo en nuestra comunidad. Necesitamos hablar más sobre ese tema”.Ella y la Rda. Cynthia Patterson, que no es nativa, ofrecen materiales para la prevención del suicidio y ayudan a poner en marcha los talleres y las sesiones de capacitación locales en el oeste y el este de Canadá respectivamente. La alta incidencia de suicidios proviene del legado del colonialismo y de los internados “con remoción multigeneracional de la cultura y privación de la vida comunitaria y del cuidado de los padres”, dijo Patterson a ENS. “Fue como un genocidio social”.El sistema de internados comenzó a mediados del siglo XIX y terminó en los años 70 del siglo XX. El primer ministro canadiense Stephen Harper, en una disculpa oficial en 2008, dijo que dos objetivos fundamentales del sistema de escuelas internas “eran separar y aislar a los niños de la influencia de sus hogares, familias, tradiciones y culturas y asimilarlos en la cultura dominante.“Estos objetivos se basaban en el supuesto de que las culturas y las creencias espirituales aborígenes eran inferiores e inadecuadas… Hoy reconocemos que esta política de asimilación fue errónea, que causó graves daños y que no tiene cabida en nuestro país”.Casey dijo que las escuelas despojaron a varias generaciones de cultura, autoestima, amor y orientación paternos, creando subsecuentemente patrones de desesperación generacional heredada y… dando lugar al alto índice de suicidios del país entre los habitantes de la Primera Nación”.Las iglesias ahora tienen un papel que desempeñar, ya sea mediante la creación de liturgias y oraciones, o auspiciando foros de adultos para promover la toma de conciencia, o reflexiones de Cuaresma, dijo Patterson.“Uno no quiere que la familia sienta que Jesús abandona a su ser querido, porque Jesús ama a todos y uno quiere hacer hincapié en eso”.Música, danza y espíritus animososUn campamento musical de verano para niños de 8 a 14 años de edad, que tuvo lugar en agosto en la parroquia de las Seis Naciones [de la confederación iroquesa] surgió de un suicidio devastador y se ha mantenido en ascenso.El campamento musical de verano celebrado en agosto en la parroquia de Seis Naciones, cerca de Brantford, Ontario.Bajo el lema de “Animando los espíritus, rompiendo el silencio”, la iglesia y la comunidad se reunieron para hacer uso de instrumentos donados —violines, grabadoras, tambores, mandolinas, guitarras y teclados— “porque los niños están muy afectados por el suicidio en esta comunidad y aquí no tenemos ningún programa de artes en la escuela, debido principalmente a la falta de fondos”, dijo Casey.“Aprendemos bailes campesinos típicos y danzas de cuadrilla y canto”, dijo él refiriéndose al evento de una semana de duración. “Esperamos que resulte contagioso. Intentamos no sólo animar el espíritu de los jóvenes, sino realzar su autoestima, para hacerles sentir bien ante sí mismos, darles un futuro, hacerles sentir importantes, que ellos pertenecen [a una cultura]. Eso nos ayudará y los ayudará a cambiar su futuro”.Dorothy Russell-Patterson dijo que la idea para el campamento se le ocurrió un buen día. “Me pareció que era lo que había que hacer…tender la mano y tratar de darle algún sentido a lo que uno experimenta y no abandonarse a la desesperación y al aislamiento”.Pero es más que un programa, “es una relación con la comunidad”, explicó. “Se desarrolló por sí solo porque yo perdí a mi hijo. Él se suicidó y no estaríamos donde estamos como una familia sin esa relación, sin la comunidad y sin mi familia, sin nuestros vecinos, sin nuestra familia de la iglesia”, dijo Russell-Patterson, de 68 años.“Sé personalmente de cinco suicidios en el curso de este año”, añadió. “Según otras personas experimentan pérdidas, parece casi natural querer acercarse a ellas y ayudarlas a compartir, ayudarlas a compartir su aflicción y a que no se sientan aisladas”.El campamento se convirtió en un modo de lograrlo; ahora hay planes en marcha para una oportunidad semejante después de clases. Los 22 niños que asistieron en agosto “van a ser nuestro grupo básico para que participen después de la escuela y empiecen a plantar algunas semillas y estimulen a otros”.Con ayuda económica del Fondo de Recuperación de la Iglesia Anglicana, ella espera que “será un modelo que podría compartirse con las otras naciones indígenas a través del Canadá”. Rusell-Patterson, miembro de la nación payuga, concibe la creación de círculos de conversación, servicios de sanación y la posterior creación de un centro de recuperación —en el contexto de la prevención del suicidio.Más inmediato, el 10 de septiembre, Día Mundial de la Prevención del Suicidio, “vamos a hacer 200 almuerzos, a ponerlos en bolsas y a obsequiarlos en el parque en el corazón de la aldea a cualquiera que quiera venir, y les contaremos lo que estamos haciendo”.De muchas formas, el campamento musical y las iniciativas para después de clase le rinden tributo a su hijo, Adam, que tenía 37 años cuando se quitó la vida el 7 de febrero de 2011. “Él no mostró ningún signo de nada, no hubo ninguna señal de advertencia”, dijo Russell-Patterson, enfermera jubilada que ha enseñado en el Mohawk College y en la Universidad de Columbia Británica.“Era el más amable y gentil de los hombres”, recordaba ella. “Se había diplomado en música clásica.

No era bebedor, no consumía drogas, no tenía problemas que salieran a relucir por actividades relacionadas con el estrés”, afirmó.Entró en el negocio de la construcción y “trabajó la semana ante de quitarse la vida. Sincero con Dios, simplemente salió a caminar una mañana por el bosque y …” Rompiendo a sollozar, continuó: “yo no sé por qué. Mi esposo lo encontró”.Recobrando fuerzas, añadió: “viviendo eso y conociendo el dolor más profundo que una madre podría sentir, pensé que en alguna parte podía encontrar a alguien más que también estuviera pasando por este dolor”.Consolada por la certeza de que Adam “está en un buen lugar”, agregó: “es importante reconocer a la persona que has perdido. No a la muerte, sino a la vida, sus contribuciones a las vidas a las que se han acercado con amor, a la bondad que han dejado tras sí. Podemos ayudarnos mutuamente a través de esto y enfrentarnos con el dolor.“En cualquier caso, eso es lo que me permite seguir adelante”.–La Rda.

first_img Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Tampa, FL Submit a Press Release The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Tags Advocacy Peace & Justice, Gun Violence Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Ed Lane says: October 15, 2015 at 9:12 am Ed:My point was that Rev. Heacock’s argument was premised on (1) a factually incorrect assumption that UCC was a gun free zone, and (2) a logically incorrect premise that political liberalism (or cultural liberalism, or both — Heacock was not clear on this) somehow contributed to the UCC incident. My argument doesn’t come from the White House, and it isn’t composed of talking points. Having said this, I think I stepped outside the bounds of decorum with my “talking points” comment. It was antagonistic and not helpful. I apologize to Rev. Heacock for the comment. What is your evidence that Obama appearance at UCC was simply a photo op/crocodile tears event? I understand that you may not like the man, but what is your *evidence* that he doesn’t really care about the lives lost at UCC? What would make you say such a thing? The Rev Donald Heacock says: October 2, 2015 at 8:17 pm Jesus let Judas go do what he needed to do without even getting up from the table, let alone getting into an argument about it, or escalating their differing views to the point of violence of any kind. Jesus told Peter to put away his sword when the soldier came to arrest him. Jesus didn’t reason with hate. Jesus loved the hater. The Rev. Barbara Briggs says: October 5, 2015 at 5:55 pm 6,000,000 sic million Jews died without much of a struggle. Your reasoning is leaky when faced with reality. I dare say you wouldn’t be open and loving to a rapist. A liberal is a conservative who hasn’t been mugged.

While the Bishop’s concerns are heart-felt some of his reasoning is very foolish.If every Jew had met the Germans with a gun in their hand how many would have been saved from the camps? Unknown, yes; but Hitler confiscated the guns before the round up. Let’s be careful of Herr Obama and his minions.

Heacock: Umpqua Community College was not a gun-free zone. A bill to allow colleges and universities to declare themselves gun-free zones was defeated in the Oregon legislature. Additionally, not all colleges are “a liberals [sic] delight.” Some colleges are indeed very liberal with respect to their politics and culture. Other aren’t. UCC is in Douglas County, a rural and (relatively) conservative part of the state (I know, I was born and raised in Klamath Falls, about an hour away). In 2012 Douglas county went 62.3% in for Romney. I can’t imagine that the majority of UCC students are particularly liberal. if your argument is that the UCC administration is liberal, I would ask how you could possibly know this, and why you think the politics or culture of the UCC administration could have possibly have contributed to this tragedy. The views you express here look to me like a list of conservative talking points, and not an actual attempt to (1) run the facts to ground and (2) reach a conclusion from those facts. My two cents.

BTW, obama got picketed today when he showed up for his photo op/crocodile tear appearance, even some of the victim’s families had no use for him. Rector Collierville, TN Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Diocese of Oregon] Bishop Michael Hanley of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon has extended prayers for the victims, their families, and all the students and faculty of Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, after a gunman opened fire at the school Oct. 1, reportedly killing nine people and injuring seven.“Gun violence has intruded into too many places where people have always felt safe. As people of God we struggle with how to respond,” said Hanley in a statement posted on the diocesan website. “We call for more vigilance, fewer guns, tighter controls, and all the other responses our hearts and our faith call us to. But, in the end, we find ourselves again faced with the blood of innocents. We know this will never end until our faith in the risen Christ has overthrown the voices of violence and fear that seemingly compel us to stock our lives with firearms.Hanley called for the response to be one that’s grounded in “the transformative power of love” and asked for a commitment “to ending all of these expressions of hatred and self-loathing. To the people of Roseburg, Umpqua Community College, and the community as a whole: Know that we are with you in your sorrow, loss and fear and offer healing prayers for your tomorrow.”St. George’s Episcopal Church in Roseburg has opened its doors as a place of prayer and healing for all the community.Visit the Diocese of Oregon’s website for related counselling and worship resources.

A gun free zone. Did anyone ever think they are a magnet for these madmen. They are armed and 4,000 others are not. We call that shooting fish in a barrel ! The shooter hated Christians. ISIS hates Christians. You cannot reason with hate. I know what Jesus says about love but he threw the money changers out of the temple. . Oregon is like my home in Western Kansas.

Located in a small valley of Vallés in Catalonia, this project of dwelling was reborn a few years ago with the creation of horse stable linked to the property. The starting point for the grand renovation was a three-floor building with austere structure and following the lower height buildings added throughout the time around it. Save this picture!© David ZarzosoSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© David ZarzosoBesides the renovation and giving them a new use, the most important part of the design was to create a dialogue between them through an U-shaped metal pergola in anthracite gray finish.Save this picture!© David ZarzosoThese considerations of design extend to the interior, in search of a harmony between the wide palette of archaic materials, vaults, and masonry stones that already dressed the dwelling originally. To create a minimalist atmosphere, the tonality of all the elements is unified through a white glaze, applied both to walls and ceilings. In pavements, although the studio has tried to keep all the original materials, such as adobe ceramics, the poor condition of some surfaces, and the marks of the previous divisions led us to coat in concrete the ground floor and in natural oak wood upper floors.Save this picture!© David ZarzosoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© David ZarzosoEach of the floors of the house is divided into three territories, one central and two lateral. To enrich the experience of transition between them, one of the key decisions was the integration of the vaulted staircase. Covering part of it in iron sheet visually modifies its structure, getting a much more contemporary interior feel. Next to its origin a container wall with a strategic height has been designed to cause a visual separation between the dining table and the outside.Save this picture!© David ZarzosoAnother significant space is a newly renovated building unlinked from the main house. Designed to host events or family reunios, it has been decided to maintain its gabled structure, creating an oak wood module that integrates the kitchen, the bathrooms and an access from the street. The concrete floor works as a neutral background, and the design of a large table and a lounge area complete the space. To mark the new lines between the exterior and the interior, the arches of the facade have been delimited by metallic structures and glass. Another building, where the farmers live, uses the ground floor as warehouses. This building draws four arches whose lighting serves as an outdoor lamp, facing the house, and connected to the games room.Save this picture!© David ZarzosoThe pergola on the back of the house—which works as a summer area—reinforces the dialogue between the house and the garden. Symbolically the new metal structure tries to simplify an old arch that was before. It should be noted an annex connected to the main house, in single coat gray finish, provided with large black sheet metal folding shutters that allow to see the old windows of exposed brick.Save this picture!Exterior sectionFacing this, there are a new swimming pool besides an old building that has been renovated to house dressing rooms and toilets.

To date, almost 10,000 drivers have been detected nationally and a percentage of those have been Limerick motorists.Again, Gardai will target motorists using mobile phones this Thursday and Friday.The aim of the two day campaign is to further highlight the dangers associated.Assistant Commissioner John Twomey, Garda National Traffic Bureau said: “Intercepting such distracted drivers will modify driver behaviour, thus making the roads safer for all road users.In the first quarter of 2014, there has been a 300 per cent increase in the detection of the offence over the same period in 2013 and gardai say that it is apparent that holding a mobile phone whilst driving remains a significant issue.Gardai will focus on the enforcement of relevant legislation over the coming two day operation where detection of using a phone will result in two penalty points and a €60 fine payable with 28 days – increasing to four penalty points and €90 euro if paid with 28-56 days.Meantime, following the Easter weekend mandatory breath test operation, 153 drivers were arrested on suspicion of drink driving.“We made very public the fact there would be significant enforcement activity over the Easter period, especially for drink driving- yet 153 people were arrested on suspicion of drink driving from Good Friday to Easter Monday. These are selfish acts by irresponsible people, and we will continue to target those who put themselves and others at risk”.

She must have paid off the teacher, “Miss” Barney Burnett, or maybe even the school board. Given the fits that I was pitching to go to school, Mama probably would have resorted to anything short of murder to get me in.My best friend in all the world, Betty Kay, turned 6 in June and she was going to first grade. Kindergarten had not been invented yet. All my playmates in the neighborhood were already going to school or about to start. I didn’t want to be left at home by myself so I did what I did best at age five. I pitched a fit.And that worked. I got to go to school.center_img Back then, children were smarter than they are now. We learned all we needed to know between Labor Day and Memorial Day. Then we got to stay home all summer and play.On the first “real” day of school, I squeaked off in my new shoes and was as happy as I could be until I got in my room. “Me and Betty Kay” didn’t know any of those children except William Junior and Bennie Carol and they didn’t play with us.William Junior went off and played with the boys and Bennie Carol played with a girl that could play songs on the toy piano. Everybody else just made it, “plink, plink.”When we went out to play, I went down the sliding board and my dress slid up and my bare bottom stuck on the metal and brought me to an unexpected stop. Before I could get going again, the third-grade boy behind me came zooming down and knocked me headfirst the rest of the way down. That hurt.I spent the rest of play period trying to figure out how I could get out of going to school.“Nobody will play with me except Betty Kay,” I whined to Mama.“Most all of those children are Baptists,” Mama said. “They already know each other.”I didn’t know what a Baptist was but I knew they weren’t nice. I didn’t like Baptists and never wanted to be one.But Mama said I’d pitched a fit to go to school and I had to go. So, the next day, I took my Teddy bear, Tim, and I put my Tuff-Nut pocketknife in my book satchel.If nobody played with me, I’d just play with Tim.Every morning, I put my Tuff-Nut pocketknife in my desk where Mrs. Barney Burnett couldn’t see it. But those Baptists knew I had it and they didn’t know what I might do with it. Me and Betty Kay were good friends but we’d fight each other and we might fight them, too.Before long, I could pump those wood-bottomed swings higher then anybody else. I tried to go over the top but “Miss” Barney Burnett would holler, Oooooh. Don’t do that. You’ll get killed.” So I didn’t.I could skip two bars on the monkey bars. The Baptists started playing with me and I learned to play “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” on the toy piano.School got to be more fun so I left Tim at home.I left the Tuff-Nut pocketknife in my book satchel … just in case of a backsliding Baptist.Jaine Treadwell is features editor at The Messenger.
