European statistics agency Eurostat said industrial output in the wider 27-member European Union (EU) also grew by 0.8 per cent. The figures showed the highest rise in industrial output since May and were a significant improvement on the previous month, which saw industrial output grow by an anaemic 0.1 per cent in both zones. Industrial output on an annual basis rose 7.9 per cent in the euro area and by 7.5 per cent in the EU. Production of capital goods, including factories, machinery and tools ,grew by three per cent in the Eurozone and by 2.6 per cent in the EU. The output of consumer durable goods, including home appliances, jewellery and car production, rose by 1.8 per cent and 1.4 per cent respectively. But production of energy dropped by 0.7 per cent and 0.3 per cent. Eurostat said Greece saw the biggest rise in industrial output at 5.6 per cent while Ireland saw output fall dramatically by 13.6 per cent. While the figures suggested a strong recovery in August, economists raised fears of a slowdown in the third quarter.“With the business surveys suggesting that the industrial recovery will soon start to slow, domestic spending will need to pick up to prevent the Eurozone recovery from fizzling out,” said Ben May, European economist at Capital Economics. last_img read more

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. Property stocks have been among the worst hit sectors since the stock market crash began a few months ago. The outbreak of Covid-19 and its subsequent impact on share prices has caused many UK property stocks inside the FTSE 100 to trade on dirt-cheap valuations.There’s good reason for this. The global pandemic has significantly disrupted the property market, which is bad news for those investing in both buy-to-let property and property stocks.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…That said, I think now is an ideal time to buy cheap UK property stocks. Here’s why:End in sightYesterday, leading British housebuilder Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) confirmed that it would commence a phased return to construction in May. The announcement came as the company reported rising orders for new homes.As a result, shares in the company rose by 6% in early trading. But, don’t feel as though you’re too late to the trend as the share price still sits 36% down overall since mid-February highs.What’s more, the company’s price-to-earnings ratio of 6.6 suggests to me there’s significant value to be had.A steady return to business isn’t just music to the ears for Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon, and other UK housebuilders. It’s good news for other companies connected to the sector, such as online property site Rightmove.Stable financial positionUK housebuilders undoubtedly face difficulties ahead. The impact of job losses in the economy, combined with the fears of a prolonged recession, cast uncertainty over the property market.In a worst-case scenario, prices could fall as demand for new homes dries up. This in turn disincentivises housebuilders to increase output until prices recover. Even if it comes to this, I think Taylor Wimpey remains in a strong position to weather the storm.In light of current circumstances, the company has implemented cash preserving measures to sustain vital levels of liquidity. The group announced a suspension of all dividend payments, which will provide a substantial amount of cash to help keep the company going.Long-term outlookMany have a pessimistic outlook for the UK property market, but I’m bullish when it comes to the recovery of cheap UK property stocks such as Taylor Wimpey. There’s evidence to support my view.For example, demand for new houses being built by Taylor Wimpey has increased over the last few months by more than 200 units. Additionally, prices for these homes are said to be comparable to those achieved prior to the lockdown restrictions. In fact, since closing its sites and offices, cancellations have only affected 0.8% of the group’s order book.On top of this, I’m confident about the favourable long-term outlook for the property market in the UK. Interest rates are at historic lows and many point to the fact that the country faces a housing shortage.For this reason, I expect companies like Taylor Wimpey to have a smooth recovery. What’s more, the group’s bright growth prospects in current market conditions look healthy to me.I can’t speak with the same confidence for buy-to-let though. The illiquid nature of physical property and the time-consuming effort of being a landlord puts me off investing.Instead, I’d buy shares in cheap UK property companies in the confidence that a steady return to business and pre-crisis levels consumer spending could result in these stocks delivering attractive returns to investors.last_img read more

Royston Wild | Friday, 19th June, 2020 | More on: SVT Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. The coronavirus crisis has created a minefield for dividend investors. Is it time to bale out following the stock market crash?Covid-19 threatens the global economy in a way we haven’t seen since the Great Depression. This means companies all over the globe, irrespective of their size, the nature of their operations, and their financial strength, have been cutting, suspending or reducing dividends like there’s no tomorrow.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…Around half of FTSE 100 firms have already cut dividends following the initial coronavirus-related shock. It’s likely more meaty reductions will transpire during the coming global recession too. Hunting big yields has never been the be-all-and-end-all of sensible income investing. It’s becoming less and less relevant in current landscape too. Getting hold of any sort of dividend is fast becoming an achievement in itself.A top buy following the market crashBut don’t pull your hair out. It’s still possible to get hold of brilliant income stocks today. Indeed, Severn Trent (LSE: SVT) is one company I’d happily buy following the market crash, a storm in which it has lost 8% of its value.The FTSE 100 firm is trekking higher again, but an inflation-beating forward 4.1% dividend yield can be still had at current prices. It’s a delicious figure but, as I said, income investors need to look beyond such bulging figures. Fortunately, Severn Trent impresses with its robust balance sheet too. The water supplier has £48.6m of net cash on the books as of the end of March, along with undrawn credit facilities of £755m.Shareholders can also take comfort from Severn Trent’s obviously defensive services too, which should keep turnover ticking over despite the Covid-19 shock. I’d happily buy this blue-chip for my own Stocks and Shares ISA.Playing precious metalsHighland Gold Mining is another top dividend share I think is worth loading up on today. As far as I’m concerned it has it all. The yield for 2020 sits at 5.5%. Predicted dividends are covered 2.1 times over by anticipated earnings. And the mining giant has formidable cash flows and ample liquidity to call upon.The stock market crash hasn’t harmed Highland Gold’s share price. Its actually up modestly from the levels of mid-February. That’s a reflection of the exciting outlook for gold prices in this tense macroeconomic and geopolitical environment. I reckon this is one of the hottest dividend shares for this moment.Medical marvelMy final rock-solid dividend selection is GlaxoSmithKline. Like Severn Trent, this Footsie share knows its products will remain in high demand come rain or come shine. This has given it the confidence to keep paying above-average dividends. And City analysts don’t expect this trend to cease any time soon.As a consequence, GlaxoSmithKline carries a meaty 4.9% dividend yield for 2020. Okay, dividend cover of 1.5 times is modest rather than great. But it still has the balance sheet strength to keep its recent policy of paying 80p per share annual dividends rolling should earnings inexplicably go sideways.  This is another share I’d happily buy in the wake of the stock market crash.

NORTHERN MICHIGAN: Diocese finds its voice

first_imgNORTHERN MICHIGAN: Diocese finds its voice Rector Hopkinsville, KY AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Hiawathaland/ Episcopal News Service] Access to health and dental care, elder care and educating young people topped the discussion during “Finding our Voice,” a one-day conference on issues affecting residents of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Marquette in mid-September.Sponsored by the Diocese of Northern Michigan’s Peace and Justice Committee, the fifth annual conference aimed at an interfaith discussion on religion and politics was intended to help set the agenda for further action in the year ahead. More than sixty people, including state legislators and philanthropic leaders, gathered to explore the issues, advocacy and action“The very fact that people of different religions and different parties can get together and civilly discuss issues that affect everyone is part of the huge piece that we hope to continue,” said Jean Mather, a member of the Peace and Justice Committee and of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Manistique, in a telephone interview with ENS. “Each person from the Episcopal Church is going to go back to their congregation and spread the word and help in clarifying issues before elections — who stands where on what.”One of the primary ways that the Episcopal Church in Northern Michigan, which includes 25 congregations, lives out the fourth of the Five Marks of Mission (seeking to transform unjust structures in society) is by hosting conferences that encourage advocacy and action of its members as citizens.“Finding Our Voice” gathered people from different faith traditions and political persuasion to have a conversation.  “The hope of the justice and peace committee of the diocese was to raise the awareness of issues that are dear to our hearts. … The goal was to gather a common vision that did not separate humanity into factions, but to seek to transform the unjust structures of society. Participants had the opportunity to explore what they could do to take positive action, and our diocese will continue that conversation at our diocesan convention in October,” said Bishop Rayford Ray in an e-mail message to ENS.With 300,000 people spread out over more than 16,000 square miles, it is often difficult for residents living in rural areas to access resources. And even where present, obstacles persist.For example, Mather explained that some dental clinics will only see one patient from a family at a time, meaning if three children from the same family all need dental care, they cannot see a dentist on the same day. The clinics can be a long drive away, making it hard for families to get there; which has led to the clinics, in fear of more one cancellation, to make the rule.The themes for this year’s conference came directly from the communities, said Dennis West, a member of the Peace and Justice Committee and the president of Northern Initiatives, a private, nonprofit community development corporation that provides rural entrepreneurs with access to capital, information and markets.In a telephone interview with ENS, West explained that the conference’s workshops were designed to educate the attendees on all dimensions of the issues, to understand data needs and limitations, and to go beyond education into action.Michigan Democratic Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow each sent video messages of encouragement to the more than 60 people gathered at St. Paul’s. Levin reminded those gathered that in the same way that the nation came together in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, people need to come together today in the name of seeking justice.  Stabenow reflected on the good work that many people are already doing, working together, and shared that she keeps a reminder quote from Helen Keller on her refrigerator:  “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something;  and because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”Rob Collier, president and CEO of the Council of Michigan Foundations, offered stories and inspiration for people seeking to make a difference in their community.“We tell stories to one another to teach, persuade, and understand our life and context,” he said.Collier shared stories of the impact of giving in the state of Michigan, and the importance of helping people to understand that they can make a difference.“We want to include and involve everyone,” he said.  He especially emphasized the philanthropic impact of youth; each year youth in Michigan raise and give $2.5 million. “We need to involve youth in the conversation and decision-making about their Michigan.”Collier went on to share stories of creative and innovative partnerships that are reshaping the response to needs in our state, such as the Double Up program that helps people receiving state food assistance to make use of farmers markets for produce, and a partnership that is helping families save for home ownership in a way that helps to make them successful home owners long term.Leaders from Jewish, Christian, and Unitarian Universalist backgrounds shared their experience with issues of health care, education and end-of-life care.  They told stories of people forced to make choices about whether their child was sick enough to go to the emergency room when they had no medical insurance, of the ethical choices that our medical system presents as people decide whether the medical care adds to the quality of life or merely prolongs it and of how their faith tradition helps them make decisions when faced with challenging issues.Harvey Wallace, interim dean of the College of Professional Studies at Northern Michigan University, and speaking from a Jewish faith tradition, said “Does Jewish law mandate universal health care?  There are many different answers, but I think yes. We have an obligation to care for others with whom we live…there is a passage in Exodus that reminds us to be ‘kind to the stranger, for we were strangers in a strange land.’”Lutheran Bishop Tom Skrenes and retired Lutheran Advocacy Director Ben Baldus reminded listeners to broaden the circle of care to include all in need: elderly, children, immigrants, and prison populations.A panel on legislative issues addressed the challenges of health care, dental care, education and end-of-life care.  State Representatives Ed McBroom (R) and Steve Lindberg (D) shared personal stories of family health care. Both representatives affirmed the importance of working across the political aisle to work on solving the issues, especially health care, before us.“We should be having conversations just like this, all across the country.  Sharing our ideas across the political spectrum so that we can be heard and find solutions to the problems that we face as a country,” said Dr. Richard Armstrong of Newberry, a local chapter president the conservative, national organization the Docs4Patient Care.— Rïse Thew Forrester is Northern Michigan’s ministry developer, and editor of The Church in Hiawathaland.

He is from Marksville, Louisiana but has been based in Dallas since 2006. He is currently serving as a reporter for Greek Life at TCU. printOne in seven men will get diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, but fraternities at TCU want to do their part in helping prevent this disease through the Movember movement.Movember is a monthlong fundraising campaign that aims to bring awareness to men’s health issues like prostate cancer and physical inactivity. The campus campaign will start Nov. 1.Fraternity members will show support and advertise for the campaign by growing moustaches throughout the month of November.“I was hooked from the beginning,” said MacGregor Hall, the Interfraternity Council vice president of philanthropy and service. “I thought it was awesome, a great cause, and something that I feel a lot of people could get on board with.”IFC adviser Evan Konecky presented the idea to the IFC executive board and received resounding support.“When the idea was proposed to the IFC exec board, they unanimously decided to bring it to TCU,” Movember adviser Melissa Smithey said.TCU is competing with Baylor University’s Movember campaign.“On the Nov. 27 game, we’re going to announce who raised the most money out of Baylor and TCU,” Smithey said.Movember creator Adam Garone cites the campaign as the biggest funder of prostate cancer research and support in the world, raising more than $650 million and helping fund more than 1,000 men’s health programs in 21 countries.Movember at TCU will host a variety of events:Shave the DateMOVE Community Service“Check Yourself” days at the TCU Health CenterCounseling Center eventCampus Recreation center competitionsMovember Moustache tailgate“Seeing people grow funny moustaches will bring people together and raise awareness,” Kappa Sigma President Stephen Levy said.However, there are more ways to give back to Movember other than growing a mustache. Smithey said there are three aspects to the campaign.“Grow: if you are a male, you can grow your mustache,” Smithey said. “Give: giving towards Movember’s philanthropy efforts, and move: men’s and women’s health programs promoting active lifestyle.”Konecky said this campaign is important to the campus because college men are the most susceptible to prostate cancer.“The target age is from ages 18-35,” Konecky said.Konecky also said he wants to increase proactive health screenings in college men.“My goal is to get more men to go to the Counseling Center and TCU Health Center to get checked for prostate cancer,” Konecky said. “I want to break the stigma around seeking mental and physical health.”All TCU students are encouraged to create a profile on http://movember.com and sign up under the TCU network to make it easier to keep track of money raised from the university.

However, sophomore Josiah Snowden has started a mentoring and tutoring program to help make these things a little bit easier for them.Snowden said one of his main goals was to bring TCU students and the Fort Worth community together.“I thought it was a great opportunity to have a two-way street of TCU going and teaching others, but then having the Fort Worth community teach TCU students,” he said. “I really wanted it to be a two-way street with both sides having something to give.”Snowden said he’s always liked interacting with people from all different walks of life.“I think it is always great when you bring in people with different backgrounds and make everyone the best type of person they can be because everyone has so much to offer,” Snowden said.O.D. Wyatt Assistant Principal Godswill Barrah said the administrators at O.D Wyatt were excited about this mentoring group because it was a partnership and support group that was much needed.“It is one thing for us to tell our kids what it’s like to go to college, but it’s a different thing for someone who is currently in college to sit down with a student in an ongoing process, not just a one-time thing,” he said.A student at O.D.

Aguirre, aged 25, of the Mindanao Bulletin where he also works on marketing, joined the regional weekly in June this year. He was on his way to the newspaper’s offices on 4 October with photographer, Emmanuel Zaldivar.Zaldivar spotted the gunman, who was wearing a ski mask, and a motorcycle helmet, and managed to push the journalist, who had his back turned. Despite this he was hit in the abdomen with a 45 calibre bullet. The gunman tried to take another shot at the two journalists but his gun jammed and he fled. Zaldivar, in a state of shock, said the attacker had seemed determined to kill them.“Police, who have just had positive results in two other cases in which journalists were murdered, should now do their utmost to discover the motives and identity of whoever hired the hit-man,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.In a report of an investigation released in May 2005, Reporters Without Borders said of The Philippines: “The culture of violence cannot explain everything. There is a culture of impunity, for which the country’s highest authorities have a responsibility, that has allowed killers and those who hire them to murder so many journalists throughout the country”. Six journalists have already been killed in 2005 and as many have been the target of murder attempts.Police have opened an investigation into the shooting and have not ruled out any hypothesis. Managing editor John Paul Jubelag told Reporters Without Borders that he could not be sure of the motives for the attack. “The kind of reports that Danilo Aguirre worked on were mainly linked to development problems and had nothing really controversial about them,” he said.“Danilo Aguirre had not expressed an opinion on any sensitive political issues, even if our newspaper did recently do a report exposing abuses by judges and corruption in judicial circles,” he said.Aguirre, who is married and the father of two children, is suffering from a serious haemorrhage and needed a blood transfusion. Six General Santos journalists have given blood to try to save him.This latest incident comes at a time when the police chief for central Mindanao, Danny Mangila, had announced that an investigation into the murder of Rolando Morales, a General Santos journalist who was killed on 3 July this year, was about to lead to the arrest and charges against at least two suspects. Reporters Without Borders has also welcomed the arrest, on 14 September, of a suspect in the murder of Klein Cantoneros, a radio journalist who was shot dead on 3 May in Dipolog City. Several witnesses had reportedly identified Robert Woo as the killer.

Bordeaux vintage could make €1000 a bottle

first_imgTwitter Facebook Print Email WhatsApp Advertisementcenter_img Linkedin 2009 vintage could reach €1000 a bottleIN A widely speculated market where much has been said regarding the “vintage of the century”, Bordeaux’s top 2009 wines could reach prices as high as €1000 per bottle by the end of summer, experts are predicting.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Decanter report that “Setting prices for the first growths and other major properties is an arcane business, but most observers are certain they will go high, inflated by many successive ‘tranches’ or releases of stock from the chateaux.”Some have said that the gap in price between the First Growths and the rest “will be enormous,” as one grower said adding that the best could top €1000 per bottle in some cases.Robert Parker, who published his scores recently, is of the same opinion.Some negociants have said that despite the recession, prices could start at €300, similar to 2005.Herve Berland, managing director of Chateau Mouton-Rothschild, told the online wine magazine that “a change in consumers’ post-recession buying behaviour would be reflected in the pricing of 2009.“On the positive side it’s an exceptional vintage. On the negative side, we’re still in crisis, and even as we come out of it, consumer habits have changed.“We are going to have to examine very carefully what the consumer is prepared to pay.”Bordeaux 2009 – a vintage to remember?ON publishing his scores, Robert Parker certainly agrees, describing it as “An incredibly exciting vintage of opulence, power and richness”. It may even be the “best Bordeaux vintage of recent times”.Prices? Who can tell? But many speculate: the top Chateaux could reach €1000 a bottle by the end of the summer! First Growths will remain elusive to all but the largest of purses… But what of “the rest”?From Vineyards Direct, supplying to the Irish market say they “are busy and firmly committed to tracking down the best possible selection of the rest.Their aim is to put together an “En primeur” collection totalling 20 wines “of real value” they say.They have, in bond pricing per case:Château Beaumont, Haut Médoc 2009 €110Château Forcas Dupre, Listrac-Médoc 2009 €120Château La Tour de By, Médoc 2009 €136Château Lanessan, Haut Médoc 2009 €138Château Lilian Ladouys, St Estephe, Cru Bourgeois, 2009 €155Château d’Angludet, Margaux, 2009 €246Wines, when bought would ship late 2011 to early 2012.

Philosopher and cognitive scientist Noam Chomsky, who is also Institute Professor & Professor of Linguistics emeritus, MIT, english economist Barbara Harriss White, Emeritus Professor and Fellow Wolfson College, Oxford University and Dr Hugo Gorringe, Co-Director Centre for South Asian Studies, University of Edinburgh, UK are amongst the 145 eminent scholars who have sought immediate release of all the accused in the Bhima Koregaon case. The statement reads- “Varavara Rao, poet, writer, activist and long-time speaker of truth to power has been imprisoned for two years now, along with ten other scholar-activists. They have been charged with inciting violence in Bhima Koregaon, a charge widely regarded as false, and over the past two years the government has failed to bring the charges to court and start the trial. Conditions in the jails in which these prisoners of conscience have been kept are said to be unhealthy and the threat of spread of infection has grown. Mr Rao, who is 80 years old*, has now tested positive for COVID-19 and is seriously ill with several comorbidities. His condition suggests clear neglect of his health by the authorities. We join other international scholars in appealing for the immediate release of Varavara Rao and the other Elgar Parishad activists.” *Rao is 81-years-old, as confirmed by his immediate family. Rao’s lawyers have filed applications seeking bail on multiple occasions on medical grounds but it has been rejected every single time. The octogenarian was also arrested during the Emergency imposed in 1975 by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, under the Maintenance of internal Security Act (MISA) on charges of inciting violence through his writing. Along with journalist and human rights activist Gautam Navlakha, lawyer and unionist Sudha Bharadwaj, lawyer and dalit rights activist Surendra Gadling, activist Sudhir Dhawale, activist Rona Wilson, Assistant Professor Of English at Nagpur University Shoma Sen, tribal rights activist Mahesh Raut, academic Vernon Gonsalves, scholar and writer Anand Teltumbde, lawyer and activist Arun Ferreira and Rao have all been accused of having maoist links and booked under the newly amended and more stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Rao who was shifted to Nanavati Hospital from the state run St.George’s hospital on Sunday, reportedly fell at St.George’s and injured his head severely. But the family was not informed about the said incident and got to know from newspaper reports. In a press release today, Rao’s family demanded directions to the hospital administration or prison administration to provide transparent, official updates on his health and the line of treatment being administered to him on a regular basis once or twice in a day as long as he is in the hospital.Click Here To Download Statement[Read Statement]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
