And the recovery has been quite impressive. However, I believe that there will be another stock market crash this year. Here’s how I’d prepare for it.Reasons for another stock market crashThe coronavirus restrictions have led to an unprecedented drop in economic activity. Because the UK’s economy relies heavily on the services sector, it has suffered more than many European countries. However, the contraction is certainly global. Furthermore, the second Covid-19 wave has started too. For example, the US is seeing a rise in coronavirus hospitalisations, in Texas and California in particular.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…Apart from the Covid-19 downturn, there are many other political and macroeconomic factors that investors have to consider. First of all, the risks of a no-deal Brexit are extremely high now. The Government seems to be taking a hard stance towards negotiations with the EU. The main emphasis is on executing Brexit before the December deadline. But it looks like agreement on many issues, including business regulations and fishing rights, is a long way off. There is another risk that could lead to a stock market crash in 2020. This is the political situation in the US. The Covid-19 downturn and current protests are taking place just before the presidential elections. This could lead to higher market volatility, not just in America but all over the world. The UK’s markets are at risk as well because many Footsie companies are multinationals and heavily depend on the US. This is what I’d doFirst of all, investors should stop worrying and start preparing. Even though a stock market crash can heavily impact most firms, large companies are highly likely to survive. For example, the oil industry is heavily impacted by the current downturn but companies such as Shell and BP will most probably do well in the long run. This is because of their cash holdings, high credit ratings, and market leading positions. However, many of the risks mentioned above are global. The political situation in the US and a hard Brexit would be much more harmful for firms that have close links with the US and Europe. Investors who would like to hedge their portfolios against such risks might do well by considering large domestic companies. What are they? Well, the most obvious example is Tesco. It enjoys a really good competitive position in the UK and seems to benefit from its economies of scale. It seems to me that even if the whole world sinks into a Great Depression, which I do not think is most likely, UK consumers will still go shopping there. Why? Because Tesco sells groceries as well as other essentials. Regardless of their incomes, consumers still have to eat and drink, and these are the last things they will reduce their spending on.However, Tesco is not the only company for conservative investors to buy. There are many UK companies that are large, stable, and paying good dividends.   How to prepare for ANOTHER stock market crash in 2020center_img Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

A ‘Day of Pentecost moment’ at lunch on the LSU…

McClellan says: Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI More and more international students at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge have been coming to the Lunch with C.S. Lewis program offered by St. Alban’s Episcopal Chapel. Photo:Diocese of Louisiana[Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana] “At St. Alban’s Chapel, we focus our energy on hospitality, preaching the Gospel, and music,” remarked the Rev. Andrew “Drew” Rollins on a recent Wednesday afternoon. “If we are strong in those areas, we will do well. But if we falter in any of those areas, nothing else will make up the difference.”Rollins is the chaplain of St. Alban’s Episcopal Chapel located on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. He and 15 volunteers had just served a meal of red beans and rice to 200 students. For the past 10 years, after the end of Wednesday morning classes, LSU students have found their way to the warm hospitality of the chapel for a free lunch and a message about what C. S. Lewis, the much-loved Anglican theologian, termed “mere Christianity,” those beliefs that almost all Christians at almost all times have held in common. The ministry is called Lunch with C.S. Lewis.Lately, though, the ministry has changed in a way that challenged how the people of St. Alban’s lived out their call to be fully open to all God’s people. This challenge came in the form of a language barrier because international students have begun finding their way to St. Alban’s.Over the past few semesters, the number of international students has grown. They now make up half of the lunch ministry participants.  “We did not intend for our C.S. Lewis lunch to be a ministry to international students,” said Rollins. “But we are opening our doors and adjusting to receiving students from across the world.”A map on the wall is dotted with about 25 pins showing the home countries of the students. During lunch, you can hear many languages being spoken. Spanish, English, Chinese, Italian, Russian, Sinhala, Portuguese and German are just a few of them. Rollins jokes, “For 45 minutes, each Wednesday, I guarantee our parish is one of the most culturally diverse spaces in any Episcopal campus ministry anywhere.”“At first, the international students attending the lunch would eat their meal and politely sit through the teaching,” said Rollins. “However, we began noticing a murmur in the hall that just grew louder over time. I realized we were not connecting with these students and that was not acceptable to us.”Rollins went on to say, “I read a statistic that something like 70% of international students will never be invited into an American home. What if St. Alban’s is their only exposure to an American church? We had to change the way we ministered to these students.”The Rev. Andrew “Drew” Rollins speaks during a recent lunch at St. Alban’s. Photo: Diocese of LouisianaLast semester, the Lunch With C.S. Lewis planning team gathered to come up with a strategy on how they could better connect with and minister to all students who walked through their doors. The changes were implemented this month.“I am doing a series of short talks titled First Meetings with Jesus based on episodes from the gospels,” said Rollins. “Last week, for the first time, we had the Bible passage on which I was teaching read in English, Chinese and Spanish by students from those cultures. A student from China read a passage from Matthew into the microphone to the whole group. When he finished, the students spontaneously erupted in applause. It was so moving. It was a Day of Pentecost moment.”Indeed, the Holy Spirit has been moving. Rollins recalls recent activity on campus. “Last Wednesday, many of the international students walked over to our lunch from the student quad where they had been attending a protest of the immigration ban,” he said. “We did not need to make any statement about the politics. We simply did what we always do, which is to welcome these students into the church and feed them. That speaks volumes.”St. Alban’s is also giving away copies of the Bible in Spanish, Chinese and English. “We had several students go out of their way to request a copy in their native language,” said Rollins. “We want the students to know we are paying attention to their needs by providing lessons and scripture in their native tongue. We want to build trust with the students, not just allow them to be present.”Rollins said international musicians will soon be a part of the lunch program and clergy from the diocese and the pastor of Baton Rouge Bethel AME Church will also teach sessions this spring.“Teams of volunteers from other Episcopal churches often help serve the meals. Many of the churches in the diocese sponsor a meal,” he said. “We encourage everyone to come see what makes this ministry so special and to show the students, who will eventually return to their home country, what it means to be the church in America.”Founded in 1928, St. Alban’s Chapel was the first Episcopal chapel in the United States to be built on the campus of a state university. Under the terms of a lease signed by Huey P. Long, St. Alban’s cannot operate on any basis except that of ministering to students. For 88 years, the congregation has pursued that mission of hospitality to the students, faculty and staff of Louisiana State University. Rollins has served as St. Alban’s chaplain since 2004.— Karen Mackey is the communication coordinator for the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana.

During my first year in college,I dropped by the Episcopal student center — Canterbury House — and its incredibly beautiful chapel, also a St. Alban’s. We did not have the linguistic diversity that the people at LSU now enjoy — that sounds great; but we were a very diverse group that experienced similar hospitality and also a substantial engagement with the Christian faith — and an openness to our questions. I was eventually confirmed in that chapel, and last month celebrated the 53rd anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood. Student centers such as these two St. Alban’s have a tremendous potential to offer a welcoming hospitality to persons who are drawn to Christian faith.

Like a naturally occurring trilithon found in rock formations, the Canterbury Road Residence is made up of three simple structures, clad in rough lavastone stacked to form a contemplative passageway. The separation between the forms is made apparent as though they are three large boulders leaning on one another. The organic nature of the hand laid stone walls draws one from the street into the heart of the house; the upper level forms the lentil over the entry.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeWhile the tonal variation in the natural stone across the scale of the building has a strong presence, the lavastone used on the building is derived from a similar volcanic process as the bluestone used in Melbourne’s streets so it sits comfortably in the context. The fine flush glazing details and mirrored glass reflects the surrounds to emphasized solidity of the stone counterpart.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeSituated along a busy street, the façade presents an outward face, yet the interior spaces are unexpectedly private and inward looking. The mirrored glass protects the occupants from overlooking aspect from neighbours without need for shutters. The stonework is evident in many sightlines through the house and intimate planted courtyards are scattered throughout including a fish pond at the entry and a planted terrace adjacent to the master ensuite. Building on a more textural experience, the interior spaces use render, travertine and dark timber which are highlighted by the natural lighting from courtyards and skylights.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeSave this picture!© Peter ClarkeSave this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe smaller urban block, incorporates a dense, uncompromised program to accommodate a growing family including food storeroom to hang traditional salami, an elevator to accommodate a disabled relative and a terrace with pool and BBQ.  Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeProject gallerySee allShow lessWilliam M.

The app offers customers rewards every Wednesday, and has included pizzas from Domino’s in the past as well as coffees from Costa and discounted meals at Bella Italia.The organisation is encouraging people to give their free pizzas to someone in need during this week’s cold spell.Charles Kerr, Managing Director of People of the Streets CIC said: “It’s freezing cold outside, so we thought it would be a great and simple idea to encourage people to give out thousands of hot meals to those homeless or sleeping rough. Even if just 1% of Three’s customer base got involved that’s 120,000 hot meals to those less fortunate than them today. It’s a free promotion so this provides an incredible opportunity.”People of The Streets CIC provides essential packs of items on its website that they will distribute to homeless shelters around the country for a small donation. All money raised goes to supporting the homeless people across the UK.

first_imgLetetra Widham declared, “I don’t want your pity. I want change!” The sister of Jacob Blake gave an impassioned talk at an Aug. 25 press conference in Kenosha, Wis., the city where police shot her brother two days earlier. This horrific act set off protests there demanding “Justice for Jacob Blake!”Letetra Widham, sister of Jacob Blake, speaks on Aug. 25 at press conference in Kenosha, Wis.Blake, a 29-year-old African American, lies paralyzed in a hospital bed after being shot in the back seven times by a white police officer. Three of his six children watched this brutal attack. Outrageously, Blake was shackled to the bed until a public outcry stopped that cruel act.Widham’s eloquent speech, which went viral, touched millions of people who are angered by endless racist police violence, including those who have taken to the streets to demand an end to this terror against the Black community and to systemic racism, while calling for justice for its victims.“I am my brother’s keeper,” stressed Widham. “When you say the name Jacob Blake, make sure you say father; make sure you say cousin; make sure you say son; make sure you say uncle; but most importantly, make sure you say human. Let it marinate in your mind — a human life. We’re human, and his life matters.“So many people have reached out to me, telling me they’re sorry this happened to my family. Don’t be sorry, because this has been happening to my family for a long time, longer than I can account for. It happened to Emmett Till. Emmett Till is my family,” she said, referring to the 14-year-old African American murdered by Klansmen in 1955 in Mississippi. “It happened to Philando, Mike Brown and Sandra,” naming three of the many African Americans killed by police bullets or while in police custody — Philando Castile, Michael Brown and Sandra Bland.“This is not new,” said Widham. “I’m not sad. I’m not sorry. I’m angry. And I’m tired. I stopped crying years ago. I am numb. I have been watching police murder people that look like me for years. I’m also a Black history minor, so not only have I been watching this the 30 years I’ve been on this planet, but I’ve ‘been watching this’ for years before we were even alive.”Jacob Blake Sr., told reporters, “They shot my son seven times like he didn’t matter. But my son matters. He’s a human being, and he matters.”D.C. theme: ‘Get your knee off our necks!’On Aug. 28, the 57th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, thousands rallied at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The day’s theme refers to the police killing by choke hold of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which sparked the countrywide Black Lives Matter-led multinational movement of millions of people.Key to the day’s program was the inclusion of family members of Black and Latinx victims of racist police or vigilante violence. Speakers stressed the need to struggle together and vowed to keep up the fight for “the justice we deserve.”Philonise Floyd, George Floyd’s brother, marched for “George, Breonna, Ahmaud, Jacob, Pamela Turner, Michael Brown and Trayvon.” Jacob Blake Sr. spoke of “two systems of justice in the United States — a white system and a Black system.” Letetra Widham spoke powerfully against “genocide.”Alyssa Findley, Botham Jean’s sister, who came in solidarity with families of police victims, emphasized police brutality is the largest killer of Black people.Ahmaud Arbery’s parents, Wanda Cooper-Jones and Marcus Arbery, addressed the crowd. Everyone chanted “Say her name, Breonna Taylor,” while her mother, Tamika Palmer, spoke. Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, called for constant reaffirmation of “Black Lives Matter.” Maria Hamilton and Wanda Johnson, mothers of Dontre Hamilton and Oscar Grant, encouraged more mobilizing.Jose Acevedo honored his son, Joel Acevado, choke hold victim. Eric Garner Jr., Leslie McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown, and relatives of other victims of police terror, attended. Civil rights and faith-based leaders and politicians also came and spoke.Sources: The Guardian, Aug. 25, New York Times, Aug. 29, people.com, Aug. 26, WJLA, Aug. 28 and WUSA, Aug. 28FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
