Senior Liberal Democrats led the pack at their conference in Liverpool, as party leaders tried to convince members they have not sold out by sharing power with the Conservatives. Deputy prime minister and Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg warned banks against paying “ludicrously sky-high” bonuses, and said there would be “very serious action” if they do. He added: “If you abuse the generosity of taxpayers then clearly this government won’t be able to stand idly by.“The last government imposed a temporary tax on bonuses. I’m not going to take any options off the table.”However, aides to chancellor George Osborne yesterday played down suggestions the government would repeat Labour’s one-off bonus tax, which did little to restrain pay but did boost government coffers. Business secretary Vince Cable said banks were facing a “potential train crash” over bonuses, and warned the government could introduce a tax on profits or transactions.Meanwhile,?Labour mayoral hopeful Ken Livingstone suggested the London mayor should have powers to raise additional income tax, with the highest earners possibly paying an eye-watering rate of 80 per cent. “The mayor should have an income tax so you can redistribute wealth. Mrs Thatcher had a top rate of tax of 60 per cent for the first eight years and all these bankers were swarming here,” he said.“I think it would at least be a 60 per cent rate for everybody over £200,000. You might look at an 80 per cent rate for people earning £1m. These are exactly the people that have landed us in this mess.” Politicians target the City whatsapplast_img read more

Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.center_img Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Views expressed in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. A little under three weeks ago, I wrote an article entitled A stock market crash in 2020? I’m prepared. I explained that I’d been following Warren Buffett’s lead in recent months and building up a large cash pile (about 20% of my ISA portfolio was in cash) in preparation for a stock market pullback.It’s fair to say that the timing of that article was pretty impressive. Since it was published, the FTSE 100 has lost nearly a quarter of its value. It’s down from around 7,400 points to under 5,600 points – due to panic over the potential economic impact of the coronavirus. That’s an enormous decline in the space of a few weeks.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…So, what am I doing now that global equity markets have actually crashed? Staying calmWell, the first thing I’m doing is staying calm. I won’t deny investing feels pretty challenging right now. My portfolio has been hit hard. Yet I’ve seen this kind of volatility before.Since I bought my first stock in 1999, I’ve invested through a number of stock market meltdowns. These include the dotcom crash, 9/11, the Global Financial Crisis, the Brexit vote, and the late 2018 drop. Importantly, stocks have always bounced back.I’m confident stocks will bounce back this time too… eventually. So, as a long-term investor, I’m looking to take advantage of the lower share prices on offer right now.Buying slowlyThe second thing I’m doing is drip-feeding money into the market slowly. I’m doing this in two different ways.Firstly, I’m adding to my favourite investment funds, such as Fundsmith Equity, Lindsell Train Global Equity, and Franklin UK Rising Dividends. Little by little, I’m boosting my exposure, investing a bit here, a bit there. Secondly, I’m buying more of my favourite stocks (I tell you what stocks I’ve bought this week in an article tomorrow). So far, I’ve added to about five holdings, taking advantage of the low valuations and big dividend yields on offer. Again, I’m investing cautiously, buying in small amounts. So far, I’ve invested less than a fifth of my 20% cash pile, meaning I still have plenty of dry powder for future buying opportunities.I’ll point out that the big down days, such as Monday (where the FTSE 100 dropped 8%), are when I prefer to buy. When there’s panic in the air, and the market is a sea of red, I tend to step in and buy.Of course, I’m aware there’s every chance global stock markets could fall further from here. Due to the economic uncertainty associated with the coronavirus, no one knows where this crash ends. The FTSE 100 could fall another 5%, another 10%, or even another 20%. Yet with stocks down roughly 25% already, I feel it’s a good time, as a long-term investor, to be averaging in to the market.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Eric Hungerford encouraged participants to be “co-creators with God.” The event at St. Mark’s Between the Bayous, Houston, on March 29 was an opportunity for community members to learn pottery and engage on a deeper level of understanding of the creative process.“God is the great creator, and we are also made to be creators.” Hungerford told participants before reading a prayer for artists. “There is the great image from Isaiah that God is the potter, and we are the clay. Over time, we are made into the masterpiece that God wants us to be. I think that this is a really cool way for us to get creative and explore our inner selves.”More images are available here.Community member and potter, Sally Kirk, led the workshop. Kirk, a middle school orchestra teacher, has been working with pottery and sculpture for about three years. Her pottery studio is located across the street from the middle school, and often times she will leave work and immediately begin work on her pottery. She says that working with the potter’s wheel is an especially spiritual process.“I think there is something about the wheel spinning that is really hypnotic, and it just takes me away from reality,” she said. “It is like meditation; I just go away.”During the workshop, participants were encouraged to strike the “gong,” a Tibetan singing bowl, for a moment of silence. Then, they could read a one of several prayers about art or creation that were provided on slips of paper.Kirk believes that the act of working with clay parallels the human experience. “Clay is a model of us being molded,” she explained. Much like clay and pottery, “we have bumps and bruises and none of us are perfect. When something doesn’t work out, you can just smash it up and start over again with the same clay. It’s limitless.”Sitting around the potter’s wheel or slowly working on a sculpture gives us a glimpse into God, said Kirk. “I get the snapshot of God working on our hearts and continually growing us and shaping us. We get to take part in that in some earthly way: growing something from a piece of mud. It is a really holy experience.”Kirk joined St. Mark’s Between the Bayous community less than a year ago, but has already taken an active role. As a satellite campus of St. Mark’s in Bellaire, the church describes itself as a “sustainable, organic, and local Episcopal community” located just outside of downtown Houston between White Oak Bayou and Buffalo Bayou. Services are offered on Sunday and Tuesday nights. Sometimes the group meets in their church building, which doubles as a comedy club (Station Theater), and other times they meet at a local bar.At the center of the church’s mission is the idea that everyone is welcome and all perspectives respected. Art, music, and open discussion play particularly important roles in the community.Kirk’s husband, John, is an organist currently working for Holy Trinity, Dickinson, but before their marriage she had little experience with the Episcopal Church. As a native Houstonian of Egyptian heritage, Kirk spent much of her formative years in the youth group of the Arabic Church of Houston, a non-denominational Christian church serving a variety of immigrants from Middle Eastern countries and beyond. Kirk said she loved the emotional and artistic aspects of that church, but was drawn to the liturgical worship of the Episcopal Church. Still, she had trouble finding an Episcopal Church that met all of her needs.When she heard about Between the Bayous, she sought out Hungerford to find out more. “It was a hard balance to find this place that had it all, but it was all here,” she said. “The first time I came, I was very impressed that Eric would do a sermon and then open it up for discussion. It is a very welcoming community. Afterwards, we will have a beer and talk, and it’s just like hanging out with your best buds.”About 15 people attended the pottery workshop, but the demographic representation could not have been more diverse. Many of Kirk’s friends from the Arabic Church participated in addition to regular members of Between the Bayous. English, French, Spanish, and at least two different Arabic dialects were heard at some point during the event.The novice artists created a variety of pieces including several cups and bowls in addition to more inventive items like sculptured pizza slices and a plate in the shape of a leaf. As part of a larger project, everyone was invited to help build a sculpture of St. Francis that would be placed in the church’s garden. In the true independent spirit of the community, St. Francis was given a thick Mohawk.As the artists debated whether to risk placing the sculpture in a kiln, where the piece may have cracked or even exploded, one participant suggested letting St. Francis dry naturally. They could place the sculpture in the garden, where it would slowly fade with the rain. “Ashes to ashes,” he said. “We can create a new one next year.”Learn more about Between the Bayous here.center_img Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit an Event Listing Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Bath, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 April 6, 2014 at 10:04 am What a remarkable article, both in content and meaning !!I would like very much to pass on the information to the powersthat be here in Boise because I can see so many benefits in so manyways.

FEMA endorses a flood insurance program

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Recent historic storms remind us that hurricanes are an ever present danger for Floridians. High winds, storm surge, and flooding have the potential to cause hundreds of millions—even billions—of dollars in damage each year. A policy with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is one of the best tools available to protect your home, business and insurable property.Homeowner’s or Renter’s Insurance is Not EnoughHomeowner insurance policies do not cover flood damage and there is no guarantee that federal disaster assistance will be available when a flood occurs.A flood insurance policy through NFIP is your best protection against flood-related loss. It takes 30 days for a new NFIP policy to go into effect.In order to qualify for flood insurance, your home or business must be in a community that has joined NFIP and agreed to adopt and enforce sound floodplain management regulations and ordinances that meet or exceed FEMA requirements to reduce the risk and consequences of serious flooding.In exchange for a community’s proactive efforts to reduce flood risk, policyholders can receive reduced flood insurance premiums for buildings in the community.You can find out if your community is one of more than 22,000 communities that have implemented floodplain management measures and participate in NFIP by visiting: https://www.fema.gov/national-flood-insurance-program-community-status-book. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your comment! How to Get the Coverage You NeedNFIP is administered by FEMA, which works closely with more than 80 private property and casualty insurance companies to offer flood insurance to homeowners, renters, and business owners. To find an agent visit: fema.gov/wyo_company.Rates are set nationally and do not differ from company to company or agent to agent. These rates depend on many factors, including the date and type of construction of your home, along with your building’s level of risk.Property owners who already have flood insurance policies are encouraged to check their policy each year, update as necessary and make sure premiums remain paid in full.For more information or to find an insurance agent near you who sells flood insurance, visit floodsmart.gov, or call the NFIP toll-free number at 1-888-356-6329 (TTY 1-800-427-5593). Multilingual operators are available (press 2 for Spanish).  From the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) FLOOD INSURANCE, WHAT TO KNOW TAGSFEMANational Flood Insurance Program Previous articleFighting Lung Cancer With Your Own Immune SystemNext articleSecond Harvest accepting job applications Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your name here Insure Against Future Repetitive LossIf your residence or business is located in a floodplain or has taken on flood damage from a major disaster requiring federal assistance, you may be at risk of future repetitive loss.Homeowners who receive federal disaster assistance must obtain flood insurance at the address of the home, even if the damaged building is replaced by a new one. If you sell your home, federal law requires that the new owners be informed that flood insurance coverage must be maintained on the structure. Often, an existing flood insurance policy can be transferred to a new owner with no lapse in coverage.If you are a renter and receive federal disaster assistance, flood insurance coverage must be maintained on the contents for as long as you live at the flood-damaged rental property. The requirement for flood insurance is lifted once you move from the building. Protection for Your Home and Insurable PropertyFlood insurance is available to homeowners, business owners and renters. Policies offer up to $250,000 coverage for homeowners, up to $100,000 for personal property and up to $500,000 each for business contents and building repairs.Flood insurance protects two types of insurable property. The first covers your building, the second covers your possessions; neither covers the land they occupy.Building coverage includes:The insured building and its foundation;The electrical and plumbing system;Central air conditioning equipment, furnaces and water heaters;Refrigerators, cooking stoves, and built-in appliances such as dishwashers; andPermanently installed carpeting over unfinished flooring.Contents coverage includes:Clothing, curtains, furniture and electronic equipment;Portable items such as; window air conditioners, microwaves and dishwashers; andCarpeting that is not already included in property coverage.last_img read more

Two Houses and Two FamiliesIn the centre of a town near Barcelona and in a location initially occupied by orchards, two sisters with their respective families have built two semidetached house. The project proposes a single body with slight volumetric differences between the two houses. These are articulated through a central courtyard inside that works as a skylight and ventilation chimney.

The different external areas are connected physically and visually from the axis of the houses, the central courtyard. Save this picture!The formalization of the final volume is solved with a traditional cement finish painted in white, which gives the whole the character of the site. The project proposes two openings types; the traditional ones that gives a direct input light, and the second ones, which are made with ceramic lattices to filter the light and the solar radiation. These filters that were also painted in white, create a unified image throughout the volume and gives the building a tectonic appearance. Save this picture!First Floor PlanRelationship of the Programme The program’s needs are very similar between the two sets. The two families, wanted a living room, a kitchen large enough to accommodate the dining, two rooms for children, a study or games room, a bedroom suite, and a garage. In one of them, and for professional requirements, they wanted to incorporate a space soundproofed to perform music. Save this picture!Implementation of Active Energy Saving Systems The house was thought based on different criteria to be self-sufficient and to save energy, inlcuding: Obtain all the energy required for hot water and under-floor heating through biomass boiler. se a system of under-floor heating (more energy efficient and with better comfort), Place a deposit for reuse rainwater, and create a system to recover grey water. Save this picture!Climatic Passive Measures The characteristic element of the project is the courtyard that runs the two houses. The courtyard allows cross ventilation in all rooms, and works as a chimney, dissipating the summer heat to the outside and allowing the entry of fresh air. The houses also include different constructive systems to save energy as the ventilated facade and the filtered openings with lattices. Save this picture!The entire facade is made with a double wall that generates a Chamber of air ventilated. This chamber is regulated with openings in the deck to allow the circulation of the air and improve the climate comfort. Finally the lattice, a typical Mediterranean construction element, allows the visual opening to the outside and in the same time controls the input of solar radiation.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow less’Unfinished Modernisations / Between Utopia and Pragmatism’ ExhibitionArticlesVideo: Redbull New Headquarters / Sid Lee ArchitectureArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/203237/two-semi-detached-houses-in-barcelona-cavaa-arquitectes Clipboard Architects: CAVAA Arquitectes Area Area of this architecture project Area:  390 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

This is Consequence Marketing.But can and does this approach actually work? What are its hallmarks? Action Aid, Action Medical Research, Crisis, Sight Savers International, Terence Higgins Trust and WWF have joining with Catalyst to undertake a research programme to find out. It will help identify and verify that developing a Consequence Marketing approach will enhance supporter recruitment, retention and development – bringing them closer to the organisation and building their brand loyalty.Rob Wells, Catalyst Director, said: “Charities need to be at the forefront of change – ahead of the game. We know charities are going to have to demonstrate public benefit, impact and value for money. Let’s see hard evidence of how donors respond.” The research is due to take place in the autumn and will be carried out by Frank Research on behalf of Catalyst and the participating organisations. Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Giving/Philanthropy Individual giving Research / statistics What public benefit do charities achieve, and can they market this effectively? Catalyst Communications is working with six national charities to research the effectiveness of what they call ‘Consequence Marketing’.Marketing and communications agency Catalyst Communications believes that few voluntary organisations are confident enough to talk, from a marketing point of view, about the consequence of their activity and the difference it has made.Yet impending legislation means that there will be increasing pressure for charities to demonstrate their public benefit. It is against this background that the agency has joined with six charities to commission research into what it calls ‘Consequence Marketing’.

BLM & Palestine supporters defy racist threats in Rochester, N.Y.

first_imgBy Lydia Bayoneta and Gene ClancyRochester, N.Y.An overflow crowd packed the auditorium of the German House here on Sept. 25 to show their determination not to be intimidated by racist and Zionist threats and to defend against racism from Ferguson, Mo., to Palestine.Rev. Graylan Hagler, center. Photo: jewishvoiceforpeace.orgThe main speaker at the event, the Rev. Graylan Hagler from the United Church of Christ of Washington, D.C., had received several death threats in the week before he was scheduled to speak at the Rochester-Colgate Divinity School. In addition, local Zionist groups such as the Jewish Federation and Roc-Israel pressured Rochester-Colgate to disinvite Rev. Hagler.The divinity school’s response was to abruptly cancel the meeting, citing “the need for extra security.” They also charged that the organizers of the event, Christians Witnessing for Palestine, “did [not do] an adequate job of vetting and reviewing the particular speaker’s message and recent history,” even though the title of Rev. Hagler’s talk, “Connecting the Dots: Ferguson to Palestine,” was known far in advance. (Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, Sept. 23)The meeting was quickly rescheduled at a new venue, co-sponsored by Christians Witnessing for Palestine and the local chapter of the Jewish Voice for Peace.In addition to speakers from these two groups, a representative of BLACK (Building Leadership and Creating Knowledge), an organization of Black students and their supporters from the University of Rochester who have strongly supported the Black Lives Matter movement locally, spoke to the meeting.Security was provided by local members of the Nation of Islam and there were no incidents or disruptions.In a very well received talk, Rev. Hagler recounted incidents of racism carried out against him personally by the Israeli [so-called] Defense Forces when he visited the West Bank of occupied Palestine, as well as the brutal treatment of Palestinians by the occupying IDF.Rev. Hagler also drew strong parallels between the Palestinians confronting Israeli occupation and the struggle of the Black Lives Matter movement in the U.S. He made the point that many U.S. city police departments have traveled to Israel for training. Then he remarked that it makes sense for those occupying the oppressed communities of the U.S. to receive training from the Israeli occupiers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
