From lows around the 280p mark at the end of September, the share price currently sits at 340p. This represents a gain during the period of over 20%. Given the slump for most of the year, this might not be much of a celebration for investors in the short term. However, I think there are several encouraging signs surrounding HSBC that could indicate further gains to come.Dividend resumption?For a long time, HSBC was bought as a stock by income investors. The firm had been paying out a dividend for 74 years, and so the passive income generated from buying it was clear. Earlier this year, the dividend was cut. This was a move not exclusive to HSBC, as other banks and constituents of the FTSE 100 followed suit. Although the bank techncially had the means to pay the dividend, the regulators advised against it. As a result, the HSBC share price fell.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…In a recent trading update, the company said it hoped to pay a conservative dividend next year to investors. This will still likely need approval from the PRA or FCA, but is a clear sign that the bank are wanting to pay out income to shareholders. The HSBC share price rallied over 5% post announcement, so it’s clear that a dividend is something investors do care about.Better outlook from Covid-19Another issue that hurt the HSBC share price this year was the pandemic. This was seen in two ways. First, provisions for bad debt had to be raised. Second, falling interest rates meant the bank suffered from the net interest margin it makes.We could now be seeing a turnaround on both fronts. Q3 net profit came in $1.4bn, higher than the $882m expected. This better performance was helped by reducing the provisions for potential debt defaults. If this trend continues, it will be a removal of the millstone around the bank’s neck that provisions and impairments carry on financial statements.Regarding interest rates, central banks haven’t cut rates further, and some have made it clear that they don’t want to take rates negative. This is a huge boost for HSBC, given that negative rates would really hurt profitability on a much larger scale than just having low (but positive) interest rates. This situation is still fluid, but the HSBC share price is clearly supported by central bank rhetoric.HSBC share price: my verdictThe HSBC share price has been struggling for a while now. I think the three points above could be catalysts for a longer-term turnaround for the bank. I also think the risk of further downside is fairly small given the already depressed level of the share price. This may be a different conversation if the share price was at 500p or 600p, but not when the price is at levels not seen for two decades. Therefore, I’d consider buying it. center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Photo: Reuters/WHO/Tarik Jasarevic[Episcopal News Service] Two Episcopal Church priests with deep personal and professional roots in two of the countries being devastated by Ebola say that efforts to stem the deadly virus’ spread are being hampered by a slow response, lack of medical supplies, illiteracy, poverty and misinformation.“The problem we have had is Liberians not taking preventive measures,” the Rev. James Tetegba Yarsiah told ENS Aug. 13, adding that up to a few weeks ago many Liberians were not paying attention to this “deadly disease.”“It is now that they are getting very serious about it,” said Yarsiah, who is the chaplain and vicar at Voorhees College where he is also an assistant professor of religion and philosophy. He also is a leader in the Liberian Episcopal Community in the United States of America.Yarsiah’s parents, siblings and mother-in-law plus other relatives and friends live in Liberia, which along with Sierra Leone and Guinea is at the heart of the worst outbreak of Ebola in history. He has been urging them to take preventive measures to protect themselves against the virus, he said.They are “being very terrified and horrified by the way [Ebola] has ravaged and killed people in West Africa, so they are coming to the realization that this is very dangerous.”“And they also see the suffering that it has brought upon the land,” he said.James YarsiahUp until very recently, the Episcopal Church of Liberia, which has its roots in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church and is now a part of the Anglican Church of the Province of West Africa, has not been doing much about Ebola, Yarsiah said.“And the reason for that is this is something that has caught the entire country unexpectedly, and has moved so quickly and has caused so much havoc and death,” he explained, adding that the Episcopal Church in Liberia does not have the needed materials, facilities and medical supplies that are needed. The church, however, is trying to educate people, especially in rural areas, about how to protect themselves.Archbishop Jonathan Bau-Bau Bonaparte Hart, who was elected in 2008 as the bishop of Liberia and became the archbishop of the Internal Province of West Africa in the Church of the Province of West Africa last month, told Yarsiah of the suffering and fear he sees in Liberia.“He is fearful for his parishioners throughout the diocese,” Yarsiah said.Ministering to an area affected by such a disease as Ebola is, Yarsiah said, “a burden on him and all the clergy and all the church.”He said he has heard from fellow graduates of Cuttington University, founded in 1889 in southern Liberia by the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, who have lost family members to the virus. Some professional nurses who were Cuttington graduates have died, Yarsiah said.That sort of news brings Ebola “close to home” for those living in the United States, he said. It makes people worry that they will soon hear bad news about their loved ones back home.Yarsiah believes that while many Episcopal churches in Liberia are being touched by Ebola, most are still functioning. “This is a time that churches need to open their doors and help education people, help comfort and counsel people,” he said.In an Aug. 8 call for prayers for the people of West Africa the Anglican mission organization Us., formerly known as USPG (United Society for the Propagation of the Gospel), reported that Hart had told its staffers “we have joined hands with the council of churches, the government and other organizations in the fight against Ebola. Churches are educating our members to avoid contact with infected people, wash hands with chlorine, and not to panic.”“We encourage the public to keep their environments clean,” Hart said, adding that the church is repeating the message of the health authorities in calling on Episcopalians also to “avoid hand shaking and, as much as possible, refuse unnecessary bodily contact.”“We need disposable surgical gloves, chorine and basic hygiene kits to safeguard against Ebola,” Hart told Us.Yarsiah said that the Liberian Episcopal Community in the United States of America is trying to help the church gather those supplies, using a list provided by the Liberian Council of Churches, of which Hart is the president, and another list posted on the website of the Liberian embassy in Washington, D.C.More information about that effort is available on the organization’s website.In late July, the Liberian Council of Churches called for three days of national “indoor fasting and prayer” Aug. 6-8. The call, which was reported in Liberian newspapers, began by saying that “God is angry with Liberia, and that Ebola is a plague. Liberians have to pray and seek God’s forgiveness over the corruption and immoral acts (such as homosexualism, etc.) that continue to penetrate our society. As Christians, we must repent and seek God’s forgiveness.”Ebola in Sierra LeoneIn the Diocese of Texas, the Rev. Johannes George, a native of Sierra Leone, said he is hearing other kinds of misinformation about Ebola.George has been in contact with friends and family daily for updates. Along with his congregation at Christ the King Episcopal Church in Houston, George has gathered a larger group of Africans in southwest Houston, to pray and raise money to help, the diocese reported Aug. 12. He also meets online each Saturday with Muslims and Christians across the country to pray for victims and health workers in Africa.George said he has talked to people in his home town of Kenama, which is under quarantine.“Nobody trusts anyone. They don’t trust the health workers; you don’t even trust your own family,” George said during the Diocese of Texas video interview.“There is a conflict between the health workers and the traditional people,” he said, growing out of the people’s tradition of washing and anointing the dead and “giving them the final hug” before burial and medical workers’ efforts to keep people of having such contact with those whom Ebola has killed.People, he said, need to be sensitized to the fact that they must behave differently during an epidemic. That fact is lost on some people, especially in rural villages, George said.“They don’t believe that this is something coming from within,” he said. “The belief is that this is coming from the outside, coming from the West and that the West is infecting them with this.”They do not understand that Ebola comes from eating monkey, insects and other “bush animals,” which George said the people eat for lack of other food. Disseminating information about Ebola and how it is spread is difficult because so many people are illiterate. Most do not have working radios or televisions, he added.A New York Times’ story recently painted a grim picture of the virus’s spread in Njala Ngiema, where George once served and preached. The village of 500 has lost more than 10 percent of its population, many of whom are subsistence farmers.George is worried that quarantines imposed to halt the spread of the disease will hurt the poverty-stricken population by cutting off what little food and water supplies villagers have. They will resort to drinking from polluted streams and eating more bush meat, he said.The Times has reported that experts acknowledge that any cordon must let food, water and medical care reach those inside.Ade Renner-Thomas, chancellor for the Diocese of Freetown, Sierra Leone, told Us. on Aug. 8 the Sierra Leone government has declared a state of public health emergency, which means there are quarantines in the areas most affected. Movements are restricted in certain areas, and gatherings of more than five people are prohibited.“When we have met as a church, there are no more handshakes when we share the peace, etc.,” he told Us. “We need as much prayer as you can offer.”Episcopal Relief & Development is working with its partners in both Liberia and Sierra Leone supporting awareness-raising efforts and providing personal protection equipment and disinfectants to under-resourced hospitals and clinics in the affected areas, according to an Aug. 6 press release.The breadth of the outbreakThe current Ebola outbreak began in Guinea in December 2013 and now involves Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone, according to a statement from the United Nations’ World Health Organization.On Aug. 14, WHO said there were 1,975 cases of Ebola and 1,069 deaths reported in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.WHO has called the outbreak “the largest, most severe and most complex” since the disease was first seen in Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo, in 1976. The disease killed 280 during that outbreak, according to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.In his interview with the Diocese of Texas, George called for experimental drugs to be made available immediately. And on Aug. 13, the World Health Organization endorsed such use, with caveats.The endorsement came after the organization convened a group of ethicists to consider the implications of responding to calls to use such drugs to try to save the lives of patients and to curb the epidemic even though they have not been evaluated for safety and efficacy in human beings.“There was unanimous agreement among the experts that in the special circumstances of this Ebola outbreak it is ethical to offer unregistered interventions as potential treatments or prevention,” Marie-Paule Kieny, the World Health Organization’s assistant director general, said.If and when the drugs are used to treat patients, “there is a moral obligation to collect and share all data generated,” the group said in an Aug. 12 summary of its discussion the previous day.“There was unanimous agreement that there is a moral duty to also evaluate these interventions (for treatment or prevention) in the best possible clinical trials under the circumstances in order to definitively prove their safety and efficacy or provide evidence to stop their utilization,” the group said.— The Rev.

The Apopka news year in review: Apopka Police Department keeps stability…

admin No Comments

first_img Editor’s Note: This is the 13th in a series of 24 articles published by The Apopka Voice in 2017 that were among the most noteworthy. We will post all of them from December 26th and December 31st. Then on Monday, January 1st we will poll our readers and let them decide which is Apopka’s biggest story of 2017.First published September 12th, 2017Story #13: The APD challenge: 12-hour shifts, 641 calls for service… and Hurricane IrmaHurricane Irma is in our rearview mirror. After spending a week in our thoughts and actions… and then a couple of days right in our faces… it moved north to wreak havoc elsewhere, and then ended. But while it was here, and even after its departure, the Apopka Police Department kept the city safe, secure, and stable.Thousands of residents in Apopka were/are without power. Traffic lights went out. Apopka High School and Apopka Memorial Middle School housed evacuees to near-capacity. We bought all of the gas, bread, water and plywood in town. The local hotels were full. We dealt with biblical proportions of rain, hurricane-force wind gusts, downed trees and a 24-hour curfew. We were pummelled, battered, beaten, but not defeated.As a community, we survived Irma.Deputy Chief Randall Fernandez gave the overall assessment of the APD’s battle with Irma.“There have been about 14 officers on patrol working 12-hour day shifts and another 14 working 12-hour night shifts since Sunday morning at 6 AM. We will continue with this schedule until the majority of the city’s utilities are restored and the roads are cleared. These officers are aggressively patrolling businesses and residences to ensure no criminal element is taking advantage of our community during this time, and there is a zero tolerance on such activity.”For the three day period beginning Saturday, and going through Monday night the following activity occurred:The APD responded to 641 calls for service with a total of 44 reports taken. There were a total of nine arrests including one warrant arrest,  five burglaries were reported, and four vehicle crashes. Six citations were issued and three trespass warnings.Two of the arrests were charged also with an enhanced penalty for committing crimes during a State of Emergency.“Our officers were vigilant and dedicated to protecting people and property before, during, and after the storm,” said Fernandez. The emergency communications center double staffed as of Sunday morning and went to 12-hour shifts to ensure the center was responsive prior, during, and after the storm, according to Fernandez. Friday and Saturday, prior to the storm, APD detectives and fire personnel were proactive in contacting those living in mobile home parks and other such vulnerable persons within the community to encourage they seek shelter during the storm. Most took advantage of the shelter opportunity or relocated with family and friends. On Saturday, 10 school resource officers and detectives started 12-hour shifts and were assigned to security at each of the two Orange County shelters within the Apopka community (3/day and 2/night at Apopka High school and 3/day and 2/night at Apopka Middle school). These shelters were closed around 10 pm on Monday night.Monday, after the worst of the storm, police detectives, public services personnel, and fire department personnel worked as strike teams to clear the debris from blocked roads to ensure critical access to the community was available to emergency personnel. And it was during the post-hurricane period that Fernandez noticed a bond forming in Apopka that extended beyond the APD.“I saw this community come together to help one another. Teams of citizens were clearing debris from each other’s homes and neighborhoods. I saw the Apopka family work together. Just like a family, sometimes we pick at each other, but when the chips are down, you don’t mess with family. This is a community in which I am happy to call home and one in which we can all be proud. I can comfortably say we have the finest emergency service and support personnel around. Even though all our personnel was impacted by the storm, just as the rest of the community was, our police officers, dispatchers, firefighters, and public services personnel left their homes and families to selflessly serve this community. When you get an opportunity, thank them. Most were away from their homes and at their assignments for at least 36 to 48 hours on work/rest schedules not knowing the danger their loved ones or property was in. Some personnel worked longer. They truly give all of themselves for Apopka.” Apopka Police Chief Michael McKinley was also pleased with the time and effort his officers and staff put in during the storm.“I thought they did well. They responded to calls for service until the wind and rain got too severe and then we pulled them off the streets. It was admirable given the conditions.  The dedicated men and women of the Apopka Police Department worked hard to ensure our community was safe. I am proud of their dedication and hard work. Just as they do every day, they left their families to protect us under some very difficult conditions and they did a great job.” UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Greg Holmes shows us how it’s done with this great hit

admin No Comments

first_imgThursday Mar 13, 2008 Greg Holmes shows us how it’s done with this great hit In the past couple of weeks we’ve seen some shocking tackling, in the Super 14 particularly. I’m not sure if it’s the intensity of the tournament, the physicality of some of the players, or just plain over exuberance. Whatever the case, there’s absolutely no place on the rugby field for a spear tackle, and most of the time, it’s landed the guilty party a suspension and somewhat of a bad reputation to go with it. So in light of that, when I saw this fantastic hit by Greg Holmes last weekend, I figured I’d have to share it with the world. Let’s be honest, we love seeing the hard hits but when they’re dirty, it leaves a bit of a sour taste. Reds’ prop Holmes, famed on RD for his incredible solo try against Ireland , showed us all exactly how to stick your opponent on their backside the legal way. You’ll note that halfway through his smashing of young Stormers flanker Francois Louw, Holmes gets him into the position of a typical spear tackle. But, by controlling the tackle and driving to ground with him, as opposed to just dropping him, Holmes pulls off a one hundred percent safe, legal, and bone crunching tackle.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

penda to Build Modular, Customizable Housing Tower in India

admin No Comments

first_img Mixed Use Architecture Copypenda has released plans for their first project in India. Based on a modular building system, the Pooja Crafted Homes will allow residents of Vijayawada to design their own high-rise apartment by selecting prefabricated modules from a catalogue that will then be inserted into the tower’s frame. “In an age of mass-production and a certain conformism in the building industry, we try to use modern construction techniques to bring back a level of individualism and flexibility for the inhabitants of a highrise. A kind of individualism one would have in building his own house,” says penda. Save this picture!© pendaRecommended ProductsDoorsLibartVertical Retracting Doors – Panora ViewFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaThe tower, due to break ground in 2016, will be divided into eight separate elements: the structure, walls, facade, ceiling & floors, infrastructure, balconies and plants. Much like a modular shelving system, the tower’s structural grid and infrastructure will be the only consistent elements in the building. Each home will be uniquely customized by its occupants in away that will also allow for future modifications.Save this picture!© penda”The modules are ranging from different floors, to facade element, to railings and a variety of pots for plants to grow along the home. By choosing their own elements, we offer the homeowners a tool to become the designers of their individual apartment,” adds penda.Save this picture!© pendaThe building’s varying facades and open hallways will support constant airflow and natural ventilation for all residents, thus the architects have referred to the project as a “breathing tower.” A grey water system will also be implemented to collect and reuse rainwater for all the plants and balcony gardens. Save this picture!© pendaArchitectspendaDesign TeamChris Precht, Dayong Sun, Xue Bai, He Quan, Pengchong Li, Frank Li, Snow SunArea36000.0 sqmProject Year2015PhotographspendaProject Year2015PhotographsCourtesy of pendaArea36000.0 m2Project gallerySee allShow lessRetrospect Vineyards House / Swatt | Miers ArchitectsSelected Projects[Cuatro] Apartments / Estudio A+3Selected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/772181/penda-to-build-modular-customizable-housing-tower-in-india Clipboard India Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/772181/penda-to-build-modular-customizable-housing-tower-in-india Clipboard penda to Build Modular, Customizable Housing Tower in IndiaSave this projectSavependa to Build Modular, Customizable Housing Tower in IndiaSave this picture!© pendaWritten by Karissa Rosenfield Sharecenter_img “COPY” ArchDaily penda to Build Modular, Customizable Housing Tower in India “COPY” CopyAbout this officependaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsUnbuilt ProjectMixed Use ArchitectureResidential ArchitectureHousingSkyscrapersVijayawadaPrefabricatedModularIndiaPublished on August 19, 2015Cite: Karissa Rosenfield. “penda to Build Modular, Customizable Housing Tower in India ” 19 Aug 2015.

He was one of the youngest Commanding Officers and was awarded the Victoria Cross in 1944. Today’s No. 617 Squadron Leader, Mark Jackson, said: “Many of us in the Squadron already volunteer for the charity so we know first-hand what great work they do to support disabled people to gain independence and live the life they want. It is also really important for us to recognise the fact that Leonard Cheshire himself played a huge part in the history of the Squadron.”Fundraising events include a parliamentary dinner at the House of Commons, a gala screening of the original Dambusters film and a commemorative service at Lincoln Cathedral. Leonard Cheshire Disability will also be launching its own fundraising challenge in honour of the partnership.  Called ‘The Dambusters Le Court to Lossiemouth Run – 700 miles in 7 days’, the run will take place between 28 September and 4 October, starting at the site of the first Cheshire Home, Le Court in Hampshire, and finishing at the home of No. 617 Squadron, RAF Lossiemouth in Inverness.www.lcdisability.orgPhoto: Avro Lancaster by Apocs on Flickr.com Howard Lake | 1 March 2013 | Newscenter_img Leonard Cheshire Disability has been chosen as the official charity partner for RAF No. 617 Squadron, commonly known as the ‘Dambusters’.The partnership takes place as No. 617 Squadron commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Dambusters Raid this year. Members of the Squadron will also be volunteering at Cheshire House, the nearest Leonard Cheshire Disability residential home to their base in Moray, and will be taking part in a variety of fundraising challenges throughout the year. The partnership is expected to raise around £70,000 for the disability charity.

first_img SHARE Iowa Corn Gets Better as Tour Heads North The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour is working its way through the fourth and final day, and Ty Higgins reports from near Des Moines that as the day started in south-central Iowa the first corn yield check wasn’t too impressive at 150 bushels per acre. The group was told to expect better crops as they headed north and Higgins confirms that is what is happening. The rolling average through their first 5 stops jumped to 185 with the improved yields seen as they moved north. Bean pod counts improved accordingly.

first_img 7 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Arguably the best years of our life, high school is when kids become adults and where lasting memories are made. Choosing the right high school for your child can be daunting, with all the choices available, having to scour each and every available high school can be gargantuan task.Good thing there’s the High School Information Fair.On Tuesday, October 1, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm, area families with 8th grade students are invited to join the high school night event to be held at Clairbourn School’s Multipurpose Building where 25 to 30 local high schools and boarding schools are represented in one place.“Clairbourn has been having this event for quite a long time. I’ve been running the fair for the last 18 years as one of my regular events, but the school was hosting it seven years before that. So we’ve been doing it for about 25 years,” says Janna Hawes, Director of Admissions at Clairbourn School.Around 30 schools are represented each year, with the majority being private schools, independent schools, Catholic schools, and parochial Christian schools within the area.“They send their admissions directors, sometimes there are students with them. Some of the boarding schools that come from around California and out of California either send their admissions director or associate or an alumni rep,” say Hawes.“They will bring materials and some of them have fancy displays, some of them have sample displays that they will hand out, anything from a post card, how to inquire to full-blown viewbooks and pencils and all kinds of goodies that they’re giving away,” she adds.Families with 8th grade students get to roam the building the entire time, to talk to the various schools reps in attendance.“It gives them an opportunity to talk to a school, consider a different type of school that maybe they hadn’t seen yet that’s right there. So it’s a win-win for everyone,” says Hawes.From well-known schools, to obscure ones, a whole range of available schools will be present at the event.“There are a lot of schools, like the boarding schools which aren’t as popular in California, in general. I mean California doesn’t use boarding schools as often as they do back east for example, but we’ve got some really good schools,” says Hawes.The event requires no RSVP. Contact Janna Hawes at [email protected] for additional information.Clairbourn School is located at 8400 Huntington Drive, San Gabriel.
