Rupert Hargreaves | Monday, 7th June, 2021 | More on: BVIC PZC Looking for new share ideas?Grab this FREE report now.Inside, you discover one FTSE company with a runaway snowball of profits.From 2015-2019…Revenues increased 38.6%.Its net income went up 19.7 times!Since 2012, revenues from regular users have almost DOUBLEDThe opportunity here really is astounding.In fact, one of its own board members recently snapped up 25,000 shares using their own money… So why sit on the side lines a minute longer?You could have the full details on this company right now.center_img As the UK economy continues to rebound from last year’s slump, I’ve been looking for FTSE 250 stocks to add to my portfolio. Here are two companies I think should benefit from the economic recovery.FTSE 250 growthThe first on my list is drinks group Britvic (LSE: BVIC). As the economy has opened up, consumers have flocked to restaurants and cafes around the country. Other hospitality businesses such as theme and leisure parks have also reported strong demand.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…I think this could translate into strong sales growth at the FTSE 250 company. Indeed, while the business has expanded its ‘at home’ sales channel over the past year, sales to the hospitality industry still account for a large percentage of revenues.Reported revenue decreased 6.3% for the six months ended 31 March 2020, due to pandemic restrictions. However, management has already said trading in the first few weeks of April, when hospitality businesses began to reopen, was “encouraging.”As such, I think Britvic should see a strong recovery in sales this year. That should translate into higher earnings and, as a result, a higher share price. In the meantime, the stock supports a dividend yield of 2.3%.Despite its opportunities, the company faces risks as well. These include competition and rising prices. The former could lead to reduced sales, and the latter could depress profit margins. Both of these drawbacks could impact the group’s dividend plans.Still, considering its recovery potential, I’d buy the FTSE 250 stock for my portfolio.Pandemic winnerPZ Cussons (LSE: PZC), which counts the Imperial Leather soap brand as one of its primary products, has faced mixed fortunes over the past 12 months. Higher demand for its cleaning brands has offset reduced sales elsewhere in the business.The company is reinvesting its windfall profits back into the business, increasing marketing and using additional cash to reduce net debt. At the end of February, net debt was £35m, down from £116m a year ago.I’m also encouraged by the FTSE 250 company’s new CEO. Jonathan Myers joined the company in May, and he’s the first boss to come from outside the enterprise. I think his involvement may bring some new thinking to the business. Therefore, I believe now could be an excellent time to buy the stock as the new CEO starts to make his mark.Unfortunately, as well as this opportunity, the company also faces risks and threats. Like Britvic, these include competition and the potential for higher costs. What’s more, PZ Cussons’ African division, which accounted for around 36% of sales in the first quarter, has been relatively unreliable in the past.For example, in the company’s most recent quarter, revenues at the African business increased 3.2%, but adverse currency movements almost wiped out this growth. After currency movements, sales declined 7%.Even after taking this risk into account, I’d buy the stock and its 2.3% dividend yield today. Grab your free report – while it’s online.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Members of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts march with a B-PEACE for Jorge banner in the 2016 Mother’s Day Walk for Peace in Boston. Photo: Diocese of Massachusetts[Episcopal News Service] More than four years after the unsolved murder of 19-year-old Jorge Fuentes, a group of Episcopalians in Boston, Massachusetts, will again spend Mother’s Day walking for peace in his name.Fuentes, an active member of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, was shot dead in September 2012 by an unknown gunman while walking his dog near his family’s home in Dorchester, a neighborhood in Boston. Fuentes was a respected Episcopal teen leader. Since 2013, the Diocese of Massachusetts has honored Fuentes by participating in the annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace sponsored by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute.The diocese typically mobilizes hundreds of its parishioners to participate, some carrying the banner of B-PEACE for Jorge. The campaign was launched after Fuentes’ killing to focus the diocese’s work on addressing the root causes of violence, with attention to youth development and anti-violence advocacy. The campaign combines youth mentoring, jobs for teens, support for families and activism on gun reform legislation while partnering with established organizations.The Rev. Liz Steinhauser is director of youth programs at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Boston, Massachusetts. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service“We can help other organizations and other projects that are already underway have more success,” the Rev. Liz Steinhauser told Episcopal News Service. She is director of youth programs at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church and one of the coordinators of B-PEACE for Jorge.The campaign emphasizes a “youth led, adult supported” model, Steinhauser said. Young participants help identify community needs, such as park renovations and access to safe activities, and teens help work toward those goals.Organizers see the threat of violence as a public health issue, and “we want to focus on prevention, not intervention,” Steinhauser said in April at a Bishops United Against Gun Violence conference in Chicago, Illinois.Steinhauser was one of more than a dozen adult and youth leaders from the Diocese of Massachusetts who attended the conference, “Unholy Trinity: The Intersection of Race, Poverty and Gun Violence.” She and others involved in B-PEACE for Jorge led one of the workshops, detailing the history and successes of the campaign.The Rev. Liz Steinhauser speaks April 21 at a workshop on B-PEACE for Jorge at the Bishops United Against Gun Violence conference in Chicago, Illinois. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThe campaign’s roots are in the tragedy of Sept. 10, 2012. The motive for the shooting remains unclear, but witnesses said, after the gunman opened fire, Fuentes was moving a friend to safety when he was shot in the head and killed.Fuentes was a graduate of Madison Park Technical Vocational High School, worked as a caterer at Fenway Park and dreamed of joining the U.S. Marine Corps, family members told the Boston Globe. Fuentes also had long been involved in the youth programs at St. Stephen’s in Boston’s South End neighborhood, and he grew to become a teen leader who served as a role model for younger Episcopalians  – not just at his home church, but also around the diocese.News of his death hit the congregation and the diocese hard.“A lot of us were brokenhearted and felt like the work that we had been doing all these years was for naught and we had failed,” Steinhauser told attendees of the B-PEACE workshop at the “Unholy Trinity” conference. “But I think that out of that experience of grief came a sense that we had not failed Jorge, but we had failed the young man … who shot him.”Under then-Bishop Thomas Shaw, who died of cancer in 2014, the diocese responded to Fuentes’ killing by researching ways it could get more involved in the fight against violence, initially forming the Jorge Fuentes Antiviolence Task Force. The work of that task force included focus groups with local youths, as well as studies of successful anti-violence initiatives around the country, and it led to the creation of B-PEACE for Jorge in 2013.The PEACE stands for the campaign’s five action areas:Programs for youth.Employment for teens and young adults.Academic excellence in public schools.Communities of support for families.End to gun violence through reforms.One highlight, shared at the “Unholy Trinity” conference, has been B-PEACE’s efforts to improve Ramsay Park, south of downtown Boston. The park is near the Church of St. Augustine and St. Martin, which hosts after-school and summer programs for several dozen students through a partnership with St. Stephen’s.Students and parents raised concerns about the park because it was known for drug use, drunkenness and violence. Shootings had been reported near the park, and parents sometimes didn’t feel comfortable letting their children walk through that area, Kesanet Tesfazion, 17, said in Chicago.Tesfazion has worked as a B-PEACE community organizer for two years. During that time, she and other youth organizers launched outreach projects in the park, including cleanups, murals, tennis and basketball lessons, peace walks and a youth dance.They also contacted the Boston mayor’s office seeking assistance. The culmination of those efforts came in January 2016 when Mayor Marty Walsh, after visiting the park, announced in his State of the City speech that the city would spend $2 million to renovate Ramsay Park, with a new playground, safer lighting, better pathways and sports court upgrades. Those improvements are expected to begin this year.B-PEACE’s focus on the park “was a good thing to show that we were engaged in this neighborhood,” Tesfazion said, but she doesn’t want the improvements in this and other neighborhoods to stop there. “I’m hoping that this renovation is a good start toward leading to more solutions.”Kesanet Tesfazion, left, and Ned Notis-McConarty talk about their work with B-PEACE for Jorge at the Bishops United Against Gun Violence conference. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service.The B-PEACE campaign also has supported the diocese’s advocacy for state gun law reform and money for teen summer jobs. Having teens testify and share their experiences helps diffuse some of the polarization inherent in a volatile issue like gun violence, said Ned Notis-McConarty, an adult leader in B-PEACE’s advocacy efforts.“It has a real impact on the process,” he said in the “Unholy Trinity” workshop. “I’ve been blessed to be able to see that and have seen a definite effect and some success because of their involvement.”Steinhauser stressed that B-PEACE is a campaign of the diocese and is intended to engage everyone across a diverse spectrum, including suburban churches that may not experience the problem of gun violence in the same way St. Stephen’s has. The death of Fuentes was felt in all corners of the diocese because he was active in youth programs, mission trips and conferences with adult leaders.“A lot of people were affected and a lot of people had questions of what can we do to stop this from ever happening again,” Steinhauser told ENS.Now congregations across the diocese have a range of options for getting involved, from book studies to the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace on May 14. Some churches also have developed partnerships with public schools, offering tutoring or after-school activities, to fulfill B-PEACE’s action item on academic excellence.Some members of the diocese also have participated in B-PEACE for Jorge by working on the Do Not Stand Idly By, a faith leader- and citizen-led campaign that presses gun manufacturers to improve the safety of their products. That, Steinhauser said, is one example of the diocese getting involved with an existing initiative to amplify its results.These efforts may invoke Fuentes’ name, but it’s tragic that he is no longer alive to participate in the work of the church because of the systemic problems that lead to such senseless violence, Steinhauser said.“We are participants in the decisions that allow that to happen,” she said, but the church and individuals also can be part of the solution. “It is my hope that B-PEACE is trying to do that.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The 5th action area represents a perversion of Bishop Shaw’s noble efforts. Bishop Shaw was focused on addressing the root causes of violence– especially GANG violence (not “GUN violence”). His efforts had nothing to do with lobbying for gun control legislation. That 5th Area is a recent perversion of his program by those who have a political –not a religious –agenda. Why would B-Peace ONLY oppose violence if a gun is involved?” Since when has violence committed with knives, fire, chains, fists, machetes, axes, brass knuckles etc been acceptable to the Episcopal Church? Is not ALL violence to be condemned and prevented? Is not a death and dismemberment with a machete as (or even more) intimidating and destructive to a community than a death caused by a gun? Obviously this 5th area has nothing to do with Bishop Shaw’s efforts to address –and prevent –the root causes of violence and is just an attempt by progressive political activists to subvert an otherwise noble program to serve their political agenda. It MUST be deleted as an action area. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY last_img read more

The group of buildings includes a main building, sleeping cabins, a toilet with a storage room and a sauna. Water can be taken from the lake and there is no mains electricity supply. The main building, sleeping cabins and sauna will be heated using wood. There are two gas stoves in the kitchen that visitors can use at the same time and a solar panel provides lighting. The hikers can wash themselves in the sauna where the washing room is located directly above a mountain stream.Save this picture!© Tonu TunnelThe exterior finishes on the lodges are of rolled zinc, which resists the wind and snow and does not require maintenance for decades. The interior uses a lot of wood, which creates a warm and friendly atmosphere. All of the buildings have a wall of glass with panoramic views of the surrounding picturesque landscape. The main building with its rectangular plan and kitchen, living area and sleeping facilities, can accommodate 30 to 35 trekkers. The smaller lodges can accommodate five. The rooms in the main building are arranged to encourage interaction between different trekking parties.

Related Articles  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agocenter_img Home / Daily Dose / Renters vs. Buyers—Who Creates More Wealth? Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago While buying a home remains a long-term investment many Americans will make at some point in their lives, the factors to consider along that road are definitely challenging. Home prices are way up in many markets, inventory is limited, and many homebuyers report having to compromise when it comes time to shop for that dream home. Another factor to consider: renting might actually generate more wealth for potential buyers in the long run, according to a new report.The latest installment of the Beracha, Hardin & Johnson Buy vs. Rent (BH&J) Index shows that many metros around the nation are above their long-term pricing trends, suggesting that “significant price retractions” may be on the horizon for these markets. If that proves to be true, the BH&J Index suggests that existing renters would be financially better served by continuing to rent rather than purchasing a home, and investing the difference, a move the BH&J Index suggests would have “an increasingly better chance at creating wealth.”“On the heels of information concerning slowing housing starts, rising mortgage rates, decreased demand and unsustainable price increases, these numbers provide additional evidence that housing markets around the country are slowing, resulting in many to opt for renting,” said Ken Johnson, Ph.D., a real estate economist and one of the index’s creators in Florida Atlantic University’s College of Business.Of the 23 separate metro areas in the BH&J Index, many are “nearing the top of their current housing cycle, meaning they are above their long-term pricing trend.” Cities operating above their long-term pricing trends include Atlanta, Denver, Dallas, Honolulu, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and St. Louis. On the other hand, cities operating below their long-term pricing trends include Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, New York, and Philadelphia.Eli Beracha, Ph.D., co-creator of the index and associate professor in the Hollo School of Real Estate at FIU, said that rising home prices are a primary factor driving up the overall cost of homeownership, but they’re not the sole contributor.“The current scores driving the markets in the direction of renting and reinvesting appear to be the results of higher mortgage rates, increase in returns, on average, in the stock market, and the cost of ownership, which includes your mortgage payment, taxes, insurance, maintenance, etc.,” Beracha said. “All of these costs are rising faster than the cost of renting a comparable property. Therefore, renters who take the money they’re saving each month and reinvest it are going to build wealth faster than those who buy a home, on average.”Not that renting itself will be exactly cheap—a recent study by RENTCafe found that millennials are paying an average of $100k in rent by age 30. That certainly suggests there are plenty of opportunities for savvy investors targeting sectors such as single-family rental. (You can click here to read a recent breakdown of the best markets for single-family rental investment.)Of course, plenty of consumers are eager to get out of the rental market, regardless of how the current market will impact long-term wealth creation. What should those borrowers keep in mind when it comes time to finding a home?“Don’t be afraid to walk away from a deal in which you are not comfortable with the price,” Johnson said. “Never buy because you are afraid that you will not be able to afford to buy later. This was the attitude that many took in 2007, resulting in market collapse.”Produced by Florida Atlantic University and Florida International University faculty, the BH&J Index is released two months after the end of every quarter.

Ramasubramaniun was hearing an application filed by a Farmer Vikram Tongad urging the Court for an alternative incentive mechanism for tweaking the amount of Rs. 100 per quintal and for its payment be deferred from within the MSP until it is verified that no stubble has been burnt.During the hearing, CJI Bobde asked, “Will the smoke from stubble burning kill coronavirus?”It will actually aggravate the Virus” Senior Advocate Vikas Singh responded.Senior Advocate Siddharth Bhatnagar submitted that he had filed an application for requisite directions and that Stubble-burning will exacerbate COVID-19 transmission.Senior Advocate Shyam Divan submitted that he had filed another application suggesting replication of measured adopted to control forest fires with respect to stubble burning.”For forest fire, there is already a system, by which satellite imageries are captured, and messages are sent to the concerned forest officials for remedial measures. Why can’t such measures be adopted with respect to stubble burning? The second suggestion is that a portion of Minimum Support Price should be withheld to verify if the farmer has indulged in stubble burning,” submitted Divan.CJI SA Bobde at this juncture asked, “Who is going to supervise and verify if the farmer has indulged in stubble burning?”Advocate Charanpal Singh Bagri, representing farmers, objected to the suggestion of withholding MSP for stubble burning. He pointed out that on November 5, 2019, the top court had ordered that compensation should be granted to those small and marginal farmers who refrain from burning farm residue.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta submitted before the bench that tinkering with MSP may not be in best interest of the farmers and that the Centre shall file a reply to the suggestion.In this context, top court scheduled the case for further consideration on October 16.The Court was hearing a PIL on air pollution in Delhi NCR. Taking note of the deterioration of air quality in Delhi-NCR, the Supreme Court had passed a slew of directions on November 4 and 6. To stop the practice of stubble burning by farmers in the neighbouring states, the Court directed the governments of Haryana, Punjab, UP and Delhi to grant financial assistance of Rs 100 per quintal within seven days to small and marginal farmers for handling crop residue of non-basmati rice to ensure that they do not burn stubble to clean their fields.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A Florida teenager accused of killing his mother over an argument about his school grade has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder.A Volusia grand jury indicted Gregory Ramos, 15, this week on one count of first degree murder — a crime that could be punishable by a life sentence, according to Spencer S. Hathaway, a spokesman for Florida’s State Attorney’s office.The grand jury charge appeared to catch the state attorney’s office off guard.“I’m surprised, I’m shocked, I’m bewildered by the fact we’re in a position to have to prosecute a 15-year-old for murdering his mother,” State Attorney R.J. Larizza said of the decisions in the statement.“That’s a sad day, and it’s a sad announcement I’m making, and I take no pleasure in the fact that the state attorney’s office will be prosecuting the 15-year-old for the murder of his mother as an adult.”Ramos’ attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday from ABC News.Ramos confessed to killing of his mother, Gail Cleavenger, 46, according to Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood.Ramos later led the police to the body of his mother which he buried in a fire pit at a church, Chitwood said.Ramos allegedly strangled his mother to death on Nov. 2 after the two had an argument about his D grade while his stepfather was on a business trip in Seattle, Washington.In previous press conferences, Chitwood has said that during police interrogations, Ramos seemed proud of himself.“He believed he was the smartest person in the room and he continued to tell us his theories of what he believed and why: what happened to his mom and where we should be focusing our attention,” Chitwood said earlier this month.Eventually, officials said, the teen changed course, admitted to the murder, and walked investigators through his plot and its execution.“She was a mom,” Chitwood said of Cleavenger earlier this month. “She was a wife. She was a sister. By all accounts she was an amazing human being.”After Cleavenger’s killing, Ramos allegedly got two friends to come and help him stage a fake burglary at his home. Ramos and both co-defendants — Dylan Ceglarek, 17, and Brian Porras, 17 — remain confined at the Volusia County jail, according to Hathaway.Porras’ attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday from ABC News. It was not immediately clear who is representing Ceglarek.“The co-defendants were charged by information with being accessories after the fact of a first degree murder,” Hathaway told ABC News. He went on saying that the two could be sentenced to 30 years in prison if found guilty.The trio are set to be arraigned in December and they have not yet entered a plea.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
