There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! 2 investment trusts to buy in May Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Investment trusts are a great way for both new and experienced investors to gain access to the stock market. They provide exposure to an array of diverse high-end stocks, for a cost-efficient price.In this article, I am going explain why I have just added F&C Investment Trust (LSE: FCIT) and Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE: SMT) to my portfolio.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…F&C Investment TrustBeing the oldest investment trust in the world, investing in over 400 companies in 35 countries, the objective of F&C Investment Trust is to secure long-term growth in capital and income through its internationally diversified portfolio. I see the trust ran by fund manager Paul Niven as a great way to add stability to my portfolio – especially since the announcement that the trust will be increasing its dividends for a 50th consecutive year.Its top holdings offer exposure to a variety of sectors through companies including Microsoft, Amazon, and UnitedHealth, to name a few. The trust also puts emphasis on emerging markets, with the third largest asset allocation being emerging market equities (as of March 2021) – and this paid dividends as the March report highlighted the trust’s outperformance in a falling market. Although deemed a traditional investment trust, F&C Investment Trust is adapting, as seen by the recent announcement of plans to reach a carbon-neutral portfolio by 2050.The lagging emerging market may provide a problem for the trust as it has a large weight in this sector. A recent surge in coronavirus cases, most notably in Brazil and India, may mean some of its top holdings could take a hit as these countries suffer.With that said, the trust is set up for the long term – and as such is in a good position to cope effectively with the volatility that we may see in the short term.Scottish Mortgage Investment TrustWith a market value of £18bn, the trust aims to invest in a high conviction, global portfolio of companies with the aim of long-term returns. With the current share price hovering around 1,220p, that is nowhere near the 52-week high of 1,418p of February last year.The investment trust has a top 10 holding that invests heavily in tech companies. Its top three holdings are Tencent, Illumina and ASML, and its top 10 holdings make up 45.3% of its total portfolio (as of March 2021). This provides positive signs as, despite the recent dip, I still have a bullish outlook on the tech industry due to its continuous expansion and growth.The investment trust recently also saw itself diversify into the world of cryptocurrency, which gives it an additional edge over many investment trusts.With this said, I am obviously wary of buying due to the current dip in tech stocks. On top of this, the trust is trading at a high price, and as my fellow Fool Cliff D’Arcy wrote in April, I must question how much further it can rise.Long-term visionHowever, both trusts are designed for long-term investment – and as such, I do not see the short-term volatility they face posing a problem for long-term returns. The depressed prices of both trusts this month is why I am using now as a good time to buy.

The All Blacks face fitness concerns of their own

first_imgWith Billy Vunipola ruled out of the tour, the All Blacks fans cannot afford to gloat as they have a number of fitness concerns ahead of the Series Full-back: Ben SmithThe mercurial full-back who resembles Clark Kent off the pitch, but turns into Superman on it (albeit dressed in black) has sat out the last couple of games with an ankle injury, incurred against the Stormers but the smoke signals suggest the injury should be overcome by June 25.Likely to step up if not fit: The pocket-sized excitement machine, Damien McKenzie, has been turning on the style for the Chiefs, but it’s the younger brother of Beauden, the 6ft 5in Jordie Barrett, who has the composure and importantly, the kicking percentages to make a difference. He’s only 19, but don’t be surprised if he’s drafted into the squad.Wing: Israel DaggBetter known as a full-back, who won the 2011 World Cup, the Canterbury Crusader side a passable impression of a very fine wing last years, plundering eight tries in an outstanding season. This year, he’s been laid low with a knee-injury since mid-March, and is due back in early June, not giving him much time to get up to speed by the time the squad is announced on June 8Likely to step up if not fit: Waisake NaholoThe Highlander has had a mixed Super Rugby season, scoring freely but is just back from a red-card and subsequent one-week ban for a late tackle against the Blue Bulls. If Naholo is overlooked, expect his hot-stepping team-mate, Nehe Milner-Skudder, himself recovering from a nightmare near 18-months on the sidelines, is likely to get a callSlow progress: Sonny Bill Williams is feeling his way back to form after a long injuryOutside-centre: Sonny Bill Williams is working his way back after a nine-month injury-enforced break after damaging his ACL in the Rio Olympics and he will be left to sweat over his place. He’ll be pushed hard by youngster Anton Lienert-Brown, who emerged in last year’s Rugby Championship, who can play at 12 and 13 and recently spurned the Crusaders to stay with the Chiefs. The Canes’ Vince Aso is in fine form.Inside-centre: Ryan Crotty is super-dependable for the in-from Crusaders, while Highlander Malakai Fekitoa provides an explosive outlet from the bench. Another player to be considered is Hurricanes centre Ngani ‘Mini Bus’ Laumpape who is being backed for a call-up after 12 tries in Super Rugby so far.Wing: Julian SaveaWith 45 tries in 52 appearances, Savea is the player the Lions fear most and the Hurricane has been in prolific form so far in Super Rugby, crossing the whitewash seven times in 10 appearances. If Savea pulls up lame, expect Blues speedster Reiko Ioane to get some backing. A potential bolter to be a star of the Series.Fly-half: Beauden Barrett/Aaron CrudenBarrett is the most dangerous broken-field runner in the world, but due to his iffy place-kicking – he hadn’t kicked for nearly two months until the weekend – there are calls for Cruden not be given the No 10 shirt and Barrett to slot in at No 15. That’s a long-shot but Cruden has been in exemplary form for the Chiefs this year and is the more dependable goal kicker.Catch me if you can: Beauden Barrett is a scintillating runnerScrum-half Aaron SmithSmith, for a couple of years, the best scrum-half in the world, until off-the-field indiscretions upset his rhythm last year. Pushing him hard is the Hurricanes’ No 9 TJ Perenara, who would walk into any other team on the planet.No 8 Kieran ReadIn the same way as the Lions fans held their head in their hands, when Billy Vunipola was ruled out, New Zealand held their collective breath when they heard Kieran Read was laid up in a Japanese hospital with a broken thumb. The 97-cap All Black captain is expected to be fit for the Series, but may have played no rugby for two months if he lines up in the First Test. Risky.Likely to step up if not fit: With the abrasive Liam Squire in the same boat as Read, after breaking his thumb against the Cheetahs, it may come down to the Blues’ Akira Ioane or Steven Luatua, to offer the power and precision from the base of the scrum. The Crusaders’s Jordan Taufua is a rank outsider.Openside: Sam CaneHe maybe the more dependable, safe option, than Ardie Savea, who sets pulses racing so frequently, but Sam Cane is rock-solid in defence, powerful over the ball and possesses leadership qualities if Read and Kaino fail to make the first Test. Savea Jnr is the next cab off the rank for the All Blacks. Able to play anywhere across the backrow, and probably even wing, he has been topping the stats charts again for his metres run turnovers and tackles. A potential star of the Series, if he gets game-time.Eyes on the ball: Sam Cane is never far from the actionBlindside: Jerome Kaino LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Comeback trail: The All Blacks have concerns over a number of first-choice players Akin to Richard Hill, in going under the radar, when placed alongside long-time team-mates, Richie McCaw and Kieran Read, Kaino, nevertheless is a key component of the All Blacks backrow and his knee-injury, which should bring him back within weeks of the first Test, will be cause for considerable anxiety for Steve Hansen’s coaching team.Likely to step up if not fit: The aforementioned Liam Squire is in a race to be fit, so Elliot Dixon or Steven Luatua, would seem most likely to get the call to slot in at blindside.Lock: Brodie RetallickThe former World Player of the Year is a brilliant athlete, who is as likely to pop deft pass in midfield as he is to pick a ball off the top of the lineout. He has been in imperious form for the Chiefs. If he’s fit, he starts. Favourite to act as his understudy is Beauden’s brother, Scott, who is nursing a few leg injuries, but is expected to be fit for the Series.Lock: Sam WhitelockThere is little doubt Whitelock will partner Retallick in the Test Series. The 84-cap All Black offers the grunt at the front of the lineout and is aggressive in the tight exchanges. His back up is a toss-up between Patrick Tuipulotu and Luke Romano.Nuisance: Sam Whitelock is a hugely experienced lock for the All BlacksTighthead: Owen FranksFranks may hold the record for the most Test appearances without a try (90) but he’s the anchor of the All Blacks scrum and the closest Steve Hansen has to a human immovable object.Hooker: Dane ColesColes is another hooker to wear the ‘best in the world’ tag in his position. Accurate at the set-piece, he’s a brilliant all-court No 2, who is at home in the wide channels and making explosive bursts through opposition defences. The worry for Coles, and the All Blacks is that he hasn’t played for two months due to concussion concerns. Touch and go.Likely to step up if not fit: Codie Taylor will duke it out with Nathan Harris if Coles fails to recover in time but neither player is an improvement on the brilliant Hurricane.Class apart: Dane Coles is widely recognised as the world’s best hookerLoosehead: Joe MoodyAlong with his durable tighthead Owen Franks, Moody was part of a Crusaders scrum that nullified the Hollywood backline of the Hurricanes by starving them of ball and he’ll be a key component of the All Blacks scrum.last_img read more

Tumminio, and thanks for your kind and informative words regarding your visit to the Temple open house and your visit to the Hill Cumorah Pageant in NY. It is good to see some one open minded enough to say what they think without prejudices or narrow mindedness. I am a convert 33 to the LDS Church/Faith, and I have seen so much criticism and misinformation published by those who do not take time to find out what is true and what are rumors. You are indeed a special person who demonstrates the love of our Savior Jesus Christ in your life. I have always been interested in different religions, and have investigated most of the major Christian religions, and I found wonderful and good people who love their fellows and our Savior. I appreciate and respect other religions and their quest for truth and love and a closer walk with God. I know that some religious leaders are not true to the precepts of Christ’s teachings, these are not among those I appreciate. Thank you again for your blog, I will tune in and read more from now on. Don Minton Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Tampa, FL Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Martinsville, VA Danielle Tumminio[Episcopal News Service] There’s a lot to worry about as a scuba diver: decompression sickness, burst lungs, limited air supplies, and inhospitable sea creatures. But none of this compares to the question most feared by a scuba diver: “Why did your buddy vanish?”Staying with your buddy is the cardinal rule of diving: The buddy is a lifeline with extra air, an extra pair of eyes to spot danger, an extra body for protection. You place your trust, your safety, even your life, in that person.Which explains why I panicked when—six years ago and 60 feet underwater—my scuba partner disappeared. He was staring at a particularly colorful anemone, but after I turned away for a second to grab for my oxygen gauge, he was gone.I looked up. A school of fish passed, but not my buddy.I looked to the right and saw a boulder.I looked behind me, and there was nothing but dark blue water.I thought he was gone, and I thought, in that moment, that I would never get over the loss.But a few seconds later, just as I was about to return to the surface in hopes that he’d done the same, my buddy swam out from behind the large boulder, signaling that he’d lost his balance in a strong current, and landed on the ocean floor behind it. I couldn’t see him for the enormity of the stone, but he’d been there all along. As he grabbed my hand, my heart rate slowed, and we continued our journey together.Although on a different scale, I imagine the disciples experienced those kinds of roller-coaster emotions around the time of Jesus’ death. They’d spent weeks traveling beside their teacher, their Savior, watching him heal the sick and preach the Gospel. And then in a matter of days, they saw him degraded, tortured, dead.There was also, of course, the strange matter of his body’s disappearance.In their shock and grief, one group of disciples walked along the Emmaus Road, telling this spiritual odyssey to a stranger. Then, in the sharing of a meal, something happened: Their eyes saw this stranger differently and they realized it was Jesus, and he’d been with them all along.Just as fear and sadness blinded me from seeing my buddy, so the disciples were blinded from seeing theirs. (Gives a new meaning to the Buddy Christ, doesn’t it?)But the disciples have one thing on me: they saw the resurrection miracle—they got to witness the real thing.None of us are as lucky as those two disciples, who walked beside Jesus on the Emmaus Road and shared a meal with him. Without concrete evidence, it becomes easy for us to wonder if Jesus’ resurrection was just the elaborate prank of all time.Maybe Peter convinced the other disciples to steal the body….Maybe the women who discovered the empty tomb only said they saw an angel…Maybe Jesus pretended to die on the cross…When questions like these arise, it’s almost as if doubt becomes the huge underwater boulder that keeps us from seeing our buddy, and our faith isn’t strong enough to move it. I think God realized that this might happen, that belief without tangible proof is too much to ask of us, just as God knew the same about the disciples on the Emmaus Road.I think God also knew that we like to eat.Which perhaps is why the disciples’ eyes were only opened to Jesus’ true identity in the bread and wine. And that, I think, is where their story overlaps with ours. You see, biblical scholars believe that the disciples on the Emmaus Road weren’t the ones at the Last Supper. They hadn’t seen Jesus break bread before. Which means that these disciples weren’t remembering something they’d already seen; they were experiencing a new thing. Jesus gives us that same opportunity: In sharing that Holy Communion together, we meet the risen Christ. We are given evidence.But we are also asked to believe that Christ will always be beside us, even when communion is complete, when only crumbs remain on the table and the wine goblet is empty. Having experienced communion, our faith becomes a little stronger. Knowing we can come back, reach out our hands and taste the bread and wine again, faith becomes stronger still, making it easier to believe that God is always there, even when evidence is not.As we walk down the long Emmaus Road of our lives, Christ travels beside us on the straight-ways and on the windy switchbacks, on land and in the ocean depths. For that, I rejoice, because it means that even as we descend to the ocean’s depths and rise to its surface, we will always have a companion beside us.– The Rev.

Hathaway-Sycamores Receives California Awards for Performance Excellence

first_imgGiving Back Hathaway-Sycamores Receives California Awards for Performance Excellence From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, April 28, 2014 | 6:44 pm Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services recently received a California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE)â„¢ Eureka Bronze Award. Presented annually by the California Council for Excellence (CCE), CAPE Eureka Awards are given to California private and public-sector organizations that are setting high standards by applying the principles of the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. (This program was named in honor of Malcolm Baldrige, who served as Secretary of Commerce from 1981 until his death in 1987.)Hathaway-Sycamores – which is one of Los Angeles County’s largest, nonprofit, private children’s mental-health and welfare agencies – was presented the award at the CCE’s 20th Annual Best Practices and Awards Conference that was held in Long Beach on March 18. As part of the award-consideration process, members of the CAPE Board of Examiners spent three months – including a weeklong site visit rigorously assessing Hathaway-Sycamores’ 50-page application addressing the seven categories of Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence: leadership; strategic planning; customer focus; measurement, analysis, and knowledge management; workforce focus; operations focus; and results.Commenting on receipt of a CAPE Eureka Award, Hathaway-Sycamores’ President and CEO William Martone said, “To receive this level of recognition for performance excellence validates our organization’s commitment to providing high-quality care and impactful services to the children, youth, young adults and families who turn to Hathaway-Sycamores for help.
