He is understood to have said the water sector’s regulatory regime was leading to inadequate returns for investors.Severn’s chief executive Tony Wray said Woodford had told it there were better options elsewhere, but other investors had bought his shares.“What is important in future price reviews is a fair and appropriate rate of return on debt and equity,” he said.Severn has opened an operations centre in Coventry with the loss of 275 jobs, saving £10m a year.Wray said 2011 would be tough, with government spending cuts possibly hitting jobs and making it more difficult for people to pay bills.“We’ll be under significant cost pressure,” he said.

You should always look to buy companies with a view to how they’ll likely be performing several years from now. The most successful share investors following the 2020 stock market crash are likely to be those with long-term strategies. Buying shares based on what you’ll think their share prices will do over a short time horizon often spells trouble.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’s not to say that investors shouldn’t buy shares today in the hope of meaty share price gains. Provided you buy companies with bright long-term futures, and strong balance sheets to help them navigate temporary problems for the global economy, then adding shares to your investment in expectation that they’ll gain value in August remains a good idea. Even if another stock market crash happens next month, companies of true quality should still furnish you with terrific returns over the long run.Navigating the stock market crashI’d certainly buy Hochschild Mining (LSE: HOC) shares on hopes of a silver price surge in August. The business hasn’t fallen in value as part of the broader stock market crash. In fact the FTSE 250 miner has gained 18% in value in 2020 thanks to rocketing metal values. And I’m encouraged of more gains by City brokers steadily ramping up their silver price forecasts.The number crunchers at Jefferies are the latest to upgrade their expectations on strong investment demand. They now expect silver – which just spiked above the $19 per ounce marker – to keep rising to average $19.50 in quarter four. They think it’ll average 20 bucks an ounce in 2021, too.Buy into this silver starBuying Hochschild Mining shares is a great way to ride the rocketing silver price. News from the business, which digs for metal all over the Americas, hasn’t been that brilliant of late. Silver production crashed in the first half due to Covid-19-related shutdowns. But the bright silver price has allowed it to avoid sinking amid the broader stock market crash.Normalising work conditions more recently suggest that the business is over the worst of it. Indeed, I’d buy Hochschild as production at its flagship Inmaculada asset in Peru goes from strength to strength and exploration at the mega mine continues to yield terrific results. I’d also buy because of the bright outlook for silver prices beyond the medium term, first on expectations of strong safe-haven demand and secondly on the likelihood of improving industrial demand as the global economy steadily improves.Hochschild doesn’t carry the biggest dividend yields out there. These sit at 1% and 1.7% for 2020 and 2021 respectively. But City brokers expect dividends to explode over the medium term as profits improve. And I expect them to keep rocketing as silver prices likely keep on improving. I’d buy this FTSE 250 dividend stock today and hold it for years.last_img read more

Presiding Bishop’s Holy Wednesday sermon from online service at Church…

first_imgThe Church of St. Luke in the FieldsHoly WednesdayApril 8, 2020Michael B. CurryAnd now in the name of our loving, liberating, and life-giving God, father, son, and Holy spirit. Amen.I bring you greetings from your brothers, sisters, and siblings who are The Episcopal Church, wherever they may be, and I look forward to being with you on another occasion when we can gather together to worship our God and to sing the Lord’s song together. As we enter fully into this Holy Week, allow me to offer a text of scripture that is invoked by all four Gospels at the very beginning of this Holy Week on Palm Sunday.It comes from Zechariah, his prophecy recorded in the ninth chapter:Rejoice greatly, O daughter Zion!   Shout aloud, O daughter Jerusalem!Lo, your king comes to you;   triumphant and victorious is he,humble and riding on a donkey,   on a colt, the foal of a donkey.He will cut off the chariot from Ephraim   and the warhorse from Jerusalem;and the battle-bow shall be cut off,   and he shall command peace to the nations;his dominion shall be from sea to sea,   and from the River to the ends of the earth.Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion. Behold your King.There is another way. If you look at this week that we call holy, and how it unfolds beginning with Palm Sunday marching through the week until we get to that Maundy Thursday and Good Friday and that desert plateau of Holy Saturday, it begins with a grand procession, Jesus entering the city of Jerusalem, that much we know. What is often overlooked sometimes is that that procession of Jesus into Jerusalem was not an accident. It was not mere coincidence; it was an act of divine providence planned by Jesus and strategically executed to send a message.There is another way, think for a moment, the setting is Passover. Jesus and his followers were going to Jerusalem to observe and celebrate and to commemorate the Passover. This ancient, the holy city Jerusalem was just filled with Passover pilgrims. The city was brimming with people all over the place. Jesus knew this. He knew that the city was filled with people and more to the point he knew what Passover was about. Passover was and is a celebration of freedom. Passover remembers when the Jewish people, the Hebrew people were slaves in Egypt, and it was that Passover, that after a long and protracted series of negotiations between Moses and Pharaoh, after a long campaign of plagues, which were boycotts in their day, which were attempts to change the mind of Pharaoh, after all of that had failed, God would act decisively on that Passover night to set the captive free.Passover was a celebration of freedom. Passover was a celebration of the freedom that God decrees and intends for all of God’s children. It was at Passover that Jesus went to Jerusalem. It was at Passover that he entered the city, on this festival of freedom. That was not an accident. Early in the story on that Palm Sunday, Jesus tells some of his disciples, go into the city to a certain place and you’ll find a donkey tied up. Untie the donkey and bring it to me. Someone will come up to you and ask, why are you untying the donkey? Just tell him the Lord has need of it. Now, that’s not a quaint religious story, that was a code, that was a signal. Jesus was the leader of an underground movement, passionately committed to God’s way of love as our way of life, to unselfish, sacrificial love and determined to get that message out, to set all of God’s people, both oppressor and oppressed, to set all folk free. That was a password.In the story, it says that when some of the disciples went into Jerusalem, they did exactly as Jesus said, untied the donkey at this particular place. Someone came up and said, why do you untie the donkey? They say, the Lord has need of it and the person releases the donkey to them. That’s not an accident. Palm Sunday was planned. Jesus planned to enter Jerusalem at Palm Sunday. He planned to enter the city of Jerusalem on the festival of Passover.Now, why? Well, because Passover was a festival of freedom and the Jewish people were a conquered people under the iron boot of the Roman empire, a brutal empire. They were a colony; they were a subject people. They were living now in a new kind of servitude, a new kind of bondage. Now, not in Egypt, but in their own land, now under the boot of Rome. It was at Passover when the city was filled with pilgrims that the Roman governors would enter the holy city now by the Western gate of the city. Imagine for a moment, Pontius Pilate entering Jerusalem with a legion of soldiers before him, with cavalry accompanying him, with soldiers carrying insignias – Caesar, son of God, emperor of Rome. Pilate entered the city, the historians tell us, from the Western gate of the city coming from his palace fortress [Cesarea] by the Mediterranean sea, entering the city in regal outfit, riding on a war horse.The scholars tell us that Jesus entered the city from the Eastern gate. I was in Jerusalem at Holy Week a few years ago and saw that Eastern gate, a place where Jesus entered the city. It is likely that he entered at about the same time that Pilate entered, sending a message, do not even think of freedom. Do not even think of liberty. You are subjects of Rome, slaves of the empire. Don’t even think about it. And Jesus entered the city not on a warhorse, not with a legion of soldiers before him, not with a cavalry, he entered the city humble riding on a donkey.Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, hosanna in the highest. He was sending a message Pilate’s way. That is the world’s way. God has another way.Rejoice greatly, O daughter Zion!   Shout aloud, O daughter Jerusalem!Lo, your king comes to you;   triumphant and victorious is he,humble and riding on a donkey,   on a colt, the foal of a donkey.And then listen to this in the prophecy:He will cut off the chariot from Ephraim   and the warhorse from Jerusalem;and the battle-bow shall be cut off,   and he shall command peace to the nations;his dominion shall be from sea to sea,   and from the River to the ends of the earth.There is another way. Didn’t he say blessed are the poor and the poor in spirit. There is another way, blessed are the peacemakers. There is another way, blessed are those who are persecuted because they dared to love. There is another way, blessed are those who passionately live that God’s righteous justice might prevail. There is another way, love your enemies. Bless those who curse you, pray for those who despitefully use you. There is another way, father, forgive them for they know not what they do. Oh, there is another way, by this everyone will know that you are my disciples, that Jesus, that you love one another.There is another way, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. Oh, this is the first and great command. He said this in Holy Week, love God with everything you’ve got and then love your neighbor as yourself, on this hang all the law in the prophets. Everything that Moses wrote about, everything that the prophets thundered forth about, everything the scriptures are trying to teach us, everything the tradition is trying to tell us. Love God. Love your neighbor. Love yourself. This is the other way.For God so loved the world that he gave his only son. Love is that other way. To show us how much, to show us that way.He deliberately entered Jerusalem on that donkey. He deliberately gave up his life to show us that love is not selfish, that love seeks the good, the welfare and the wellbeing of others. There’s an old spiritual, they sang it this way, “If you cannot preach like Peter and you cannot pray like Paul, you just tell the love of Jesus, how he died to save us all.”He didn’t die for himself or what he could get out of it. He died, gave up his life for others. That’s what love looks like. So just tell the love of Jesus, how he died, not for himself, how he died to save us all, and then the song goes on. Now there is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole. There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin-sick soul.The message of this week that we call Holy is that there is another way. The way of unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive love.Rejoice daughter of Zion. Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Jerusalem, for behold your king, he comes.The King of love, says the hymn, my Shepherd is,Whose goodness faileth never;I nothing lack if I am hisAnd he is mine forever.God love you. God bless you. May God hold us all in those almighty hands of love. The following is the text of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s Holy Wednesday sermon from The Church of St. Luke in the Fields, New York, New York.

Tarrant County updates emergency plans but does not enact ‘shelter-in-place’ order

He has worked for TCU360 since his freshman year and is currently the executive editor. Chancellor talks stimulus money, COVID-19 vaccines and more at limited attendance faculty town hall The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ printThe Tarrant County Commissioners Court held an emergency meeting Sunday and approved stricter emergency management plans but have not ordered residents to “shelter-in-place” yet amid the spread of COVID-19. The declaration was ordered at 2 p.m. Saturday and limits the size of social gatherings to 10 people or less. It also ordered that restaurants may only provide drive-through and take-out services. “The order that I wrote yesterday lets businesses that do not have public coming into them continue as long as they continue to practice social distancing,” County Judge Glen Whitley said. The court approved an additional $1,000 fine or a jail sentence up to 180 days for any resident not complying with the county’s emergency management plan. They also approved a 14-day renewal of Whitley’s declaration of a local disaster. Both Roy Charles Brooks and Devan Allen called for the county to adopt a shelter-in-place order similar to what Dallas County enacted earlier Sunday. “We would not be shutting down the essential functions of government or the essential functions of the private sector that people depend on to make it from day to day,” Brooks said. “We would just be asking people to stay the heck at home.” The Dallas County order says that residents may only leave their homes for “essential activities, or to provide or perform essential governmental functions, or to operate essential businesses.” Whitley said he was not prepared to go that far yet. “Shelter in place basically says we’re closing any business regardless of whether the public is coming in or not,” he said. “I’m just not that prepared to go this far at this point in time.”A number of Tarrant County residents voiced their opinions to the court on potentially invoking a shelter in place order. Some said it was essential to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, while others saw it as an overreaction and misuse of government powers. “This is going to spread like wildfire if we do not do something to get people to stay in their homes and actually stop public conduct with other people,” one Burleson resident said. Another resident brought up the fact that Tarrant County had 44 cases at the time of the meeting, accounting for only “.0002 of the county’s population.”“That small, small amount of population should not impact the entire population as a whole,” she added. “This is simply unprecedented and a gross overstep of government.”This elicited a strong response from Commissioner Brooks. “Unfortunately, that percentage of the population does affect the entire population, and to think otherwise is to stick your head in the sand,” he said. Whitley did not rule out the idea of shelter in place entirely, saying that the court will continue to look at it as an option at each of their future meetings. The court will meet again on Tuesday at 10 a.m. for their regularly scheduled meeting. A briefing from county public health officials is on the agenda. Tarrant County now has 57 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and one death, according to the county website.  Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ Benton McDonald Facebook ReddIt Twitter Linkedin Board approves tuition freeze, RRI actions but doesn’t act on eligibility issue spurred by Williams ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ Benton McDonaldhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/benton-mcdonald/ Thousands of TCU community members receive COVID-19 vaccines as university supply increaseslast_img read more

Guangdong Airport Authority is a state-run entity that includes Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, which in 2015 was China’s third busiest airport and the 17th busiest in the world with 55 million passengers.The agreement is a follow-on from the signing of a wide-ranging MOU to boost ties between the Irish and Chinese governments in 2014.

Among those present were Mayor of Clare Cllr James Breen and vice-Governor of Guangdong Province Mr Xu Shaoha.Speaking at the signing of the MOU today in Shannon, Shannon Group Chairman Rose Hynes said, “Over the years Shannon Airport and the wider region has forged deep ties to the east and west. In a Chinese context, there is a long-standing relationship with the Shannon region in particular, as evidenced by last year’s visit here by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and by the visit in 2012 by current Chinese President and then Vice-President Xi Jinping.“Our intention is to build on these very positive relationships by developing economic ties that will lead to tangible and mutual benefits between this region of Ireland and China and the signing of this MOU today with Guangdong Airport Authority is a very positive development in that regard. We are continuing to build our relationship and there is much work to be done but it is an important first step and we look forward to working closely with our counterparts in the Guangdong Airport Authority in the years ahead.” Email Twitter Facebook Previous articleGAA – Limerick suffer defeat at hands of ClareNext articleHalf of consumers struggle to understand utility bills Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” center_img Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Advertisement Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live WhatsApp BusinessNewsShannon Group signs accord to develop links with leading Chinese airport groupBy Staff Reporter – May 30, 2016 672 last_img read more
