The FTSE 100 index fell from around 7,400 points to 5,000, a move of  over 30% in just one month. Quite a few market analysts had been calling for some kind of market correction due to inflated prices. However, few could have predicted Covid-19 and the impact it would have on the stock market. Panic set in, hence the change from just a correction to a crash. Chatter is rising again about the potential for a 2021 stock market crash, so what should I do?A 2021 crash could be comingThe main reason I see for a 2021 market crash is due to the disconnect between the market and reality. For example, UK unemployment is at the highest rate in five years. The number of Britons claiming universal credit has doubled since the start of the pandemic. Yet what about the FTSE 100? It’s down less than 200 points versus this time last year. 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 could make the argument that most of the FTSE 100 companies are international and so the fate of the UK doesn’t impact them that much. But the FTSE 250 (a more domestic gauge) is actually up almost 9% over a one-year period! From this, I’m wary that another stock market crash in 2021 could be coming. I could be wrong here, and merely overly pessimistic due to the pandemic hangover.In response to a potential crash I’d make a list of the stocks I own that could be most sensitive to a crash. So I’d be looking at stocks that currently have a high valuation and a high P/E ratio. For example, I’m bullish on the London Stock Exchange Group. Yet, given that the price has doubled in two years and has a P/E ratio of 65, I’d be very careful as this could be hit hard in a market crash.Another way I’m preparing for a market crash in 2021 is looking to increase my holdings in dividend stocks. I recently reviewed some good options here. Dividend stocks allow me to pick up income, regardless of what the share price does. So if a crash does come and I’m stuck holding stocks that are heavily down, I can be content with picking up dividends during this holding period (as long as dividends aren’t cut, of course). Then, if the market comes back higher, I’ll have something to show for it.Not a time to panicThe third way I’m preparing for a potential market crash is trimming some profits from stocks I’ve held for years. And finally, I’m looking to hold these realised profits in cash. This gives me some dry powder to look to buy shares I think are at attractive prices and can reward me over the long term. I’m only doing this with a small amount of money though. The risk here is that a crash doesn’t come, and I’m losing out from holding money in cash and not being invested. Even if a market crash does come at some point in 2021, I’m not going to panic. After the crash we saw last year, the market rebounded fairly quickly. If I’d prematurely sold out of everything, it would have been the worst thing to do. As a long-term investor, even a crash shouldn’t faze me too much. jonathansmith1 has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Episcopal Women’s Caucus urges church to act on reproductive justice

first_img Christopher Johnson says: Steve Grech says: Rector Pittsburgh, PA [Episcopal Women’s Caucus] The Board of the Episcopal Women’s Caucus, a social justice advocacy group within the Episcopal Church, expresses our outrage at the current political discourse regarding reproductive justice. We are appalled by the misinformation that speaks of “forcible rape” as something different from ordinary rape and asserts that, in a “legitimate rape,” a woman will not get pregnant, because her body has a way to “shut that whole thing down.”Those of us who have worked to raise awareness about women’s rights and promoted changes in laws to more actively prosecute rapists, strengthen jail sentences, and help victims of rape and sexual assault find help and hope feel that we have back tracked in time. We are living a nightmare. Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Second, the Episcopal Women’s Caucus supports Rev. Harry Knox, president and CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, when he writes: Tags Rector Tampa, FL Rector Collierville, TN Louis Stanley Schoen says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Featured Events First, we take a firm stand against any and all representatives, senators and other legislators who aim to limit the health care options any woman — particularly a raped and pregnant woman — has available to her. Submit a Press Release August 24, 2012 at 6:03 pm Thank you for the strong wording in this article. I cannot believe that any human being would stand behind Akin or his followers or other party members. Elizabeth R. Hallett says: August 27, 2012 at 9:08 am There’s an old expression: “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention”.Those of us who have worked long and hard over many years for reproductive justice are, indeed, ‘outraged’ to hear the current level of discourse as well as the proposed political legislation to erode the gains made over the past few decades.The 1994 statement of the Episcopal Church regarding abortion still stands squarely on the classical Via Media of Anglicanism. You can find it here: says, in part, “We regard all abortion as having a tragic dimension, calling for the concern and compassion of all the Christian community. While we acknowledge that in this country it is the legal right of every woman to have a medically safe abortion, as Christians we believe strongly that if this right is exercised, it should be used only in extreme situations. We emphatically oppose abortion as a means of birth control, family planning, sex selection, or any reason of mere convenience.”That was actually taken from Resolution C047 at the 61st General Convention. In 1994, we added this: “We believe that legislation concerning abortions will not address the root of the problem. We therefore express our deep conviction that any proposed legislation on the part of national or state governments regarding abortions must take special care to see that the individual conscience is respected, and that the responsibility of individuals to reach informed decisions in this matter is acknowledged and honored as the position of this Church; and be it further Resolved, That this 71st General Convention of the Episcopal Church express its unequivocal opposition to any legislative, executive or judicial action on the part of local, state or national governments that abridges the right of a woman to reach an informed decision about the termination of pregnancy or that would limit the access of a woman to safe means of acting on her decision.”Not everyone on either side of this issue is happy with that statement. Those who are opposed to abortion under ANY circumstance lament that their church is not more blatantly “pro-life”. Those who see that abortion can be a “blessing” to some women, lament that their church is not more aggressively “pro-choice”.Those of us who see some in our government trying to erode reproductive justice for women – even with the extremes of junk science which more than Mr. Aiken believe – are rightly and justifiably outraged. That’s because we’re paying attention, even as we continue to direct our energies toward reducing the reasons why women have abortions: poverty, education, access to affordable, quality health care, etc. October 26, 2012 at 11:53 pm It sounds like the arguments pro and con regarding women’s health care choices break down along gender lines, with women being outraged or at least disappointed, and men viewing it all with alarm. Inasmuch as medical science and medical research has had little to say about the physical difference and uniqueness of women’s bodies, to the extent that most research is historically abased on the male as “norm,” I woiuld say, that probably women should be the first consulted about these kinds of moral and spiritual issues, and men ought to defer to women’s unique experiences in their unique bodies. In otrher words, be still and listen. August 25, 2012 at 12:22 am Please. The guy misspoke. Those of us who are pro-life and actually live in Missouri know that Congressman Akin is not fit to be a US senator and are moving heaven and Earth to get another viable conservative candidate on the November ballot. But whatever Congressman Akin is, he is infinitely preferable to the abortion-for-any-reason-whatsoever zealots of Harry Knox’s RCRC. And for the Episcopal Women’s Caucus to try to use this occasion merely to try to score a few political points is deplorable and anti-Christian.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Washington, DC August 27, 2012 at 12:13 pm The men on this thread show how we need more women in legislative bodies that understand the issue of rape. It is clear that these men do not. Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit a Job Listing Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis October 26, 2012 at 11:39 pm Mr. Grech and Mr. Johnson: Please be careful lest you both mis-speak – the bogy man of “abortion for any reason whatsoever zealot” does not exist. What seems to exist here, is the inplication that these men know the real and acceptable reasons why women can’t be trusted to make decisions about their healthcare and family planning , but that even Todd Akin, bad as he may be, is morally and spiritually superior to women generally, who do not have the intelligence or moral sensitivity to decide when they may want or need to terminate a pregnancy. From where do these people get their authority to make such statements? The mis-speakers here may be thinking that they are better judges of what women should do about their health care, their privacy, their bodily integrity, and reproductive rights than women do. They define rape on their own terms, they make ridiculous statements about women’s anatomy, and claim their authority from God. It is doubtful that they have had any first hand experience with real women or with rape or incest, so trippingly do these insane statements flow off the tongue. And by what experience do they claim that God is their authority? Let’s have a little humility, gentlemen, and a little compassion, too. I think that comes from God. August 26, 2012 at 6:32 pm I agree with Mr Johnson. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Knoxville, TN elizabeth windsor says: Comments (17) August 27, 2012 at 12:11 pm Christopher, Mr. Akin did not misspeak. His words were very clear. He only backpedaled after the extreme backlash from people on both sides of the issue. I applaud the Episcopal Womens Caucus for taking a strong stand for women. August 27, 2012 at 8:57 am the Rev’d Dr. Elizabeth Kaeton says: John D. Andrews says: Advocacy Peace & Justice, Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Tony Green says: John D. Andrews says: August 28, 2012 at 3:48 am Really? Than why are pro-lifers like me trying to get Akin to withdraw and are seriously considering voting for a third-party candidate or even Claire McCaskill herself if he doesn’t? If you believe that what Akin said represents pro-life beliefs than you know nothing whatsoever about pro-life beliefs. The fact that Todd Akin is stupid enough not to understand that what he said gave the Democrats a weapon that they’d be foolish not to exploit and arrogantly self-centered enough not to care is what will probably give Claire McCaskill six more years in the Senate.Let me put it this way. If the election seems close enough that my vote might matter, I’ll hold my nose and vote for Akin, secure in the knowledge that, if he wins, I’ll be able to vote for a much less embarrassing Republican candidate in 2018. But if it’s obvious to everyone in Missouri that Claire is going to take down this monster pot, handed to her by Todd Akin, then I’ll vote for some third-party candidate or other, secure in the knowledge that Todd Akin’s political career is finished. The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Marlene Talbott-Green PhD says: Rector Martinsville, VA “Congressman Akin misunderstands the Biblical meaning of the word ‘justice.’ He talks about bringing rapists to justice, but he apparently doesn’t realize that true justice requires that a woman who has been raped have every resource available to her as she rebuilds her life after trauma. One of those resources must be the option to end a pregnancy caused by her rapist.” August 25, 2012 at 12:18 am We cannot defend too strongly the rights of women. We, as Americans, are so slow among the developed nations to welcome women into the eschelons of decision making, and the men need us!! We change the level of discourse when geiven the opportunity. Episcopalian men: where are you? In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Christopher Johnson says: Director of Music Morristown, NJ Sue Dauer says: August 27, 2012 at 3:54 pm Mr. Johnson,He did not misspeak. Far from it. He claimed, without any scientific basis whatsoever, that women who are raped “legitimately” (as opposed to those who he believes are making false claims of rape) do not get pregnant. This hateful and ignorant statement harkens back to the 16th century witch hunts and the “ordeal by water” where an accused woman who sank was considered innocent of witchcraft (albeit, dead), while floating indicated witchcraft. To Akin, if a woman was really, legitimately raped, her body does not allow her to get pregnant, so there is no need for an abortion. To those who get pregnant, well they must have been asking for it, right? No abortion for them.This is not a misstatement of any sort whatsoever, it was a calculated, sickening statement.

Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Women’s Ministry the Rev’d Dr. Elizabeth Kaeton says: August 27, 2012 at 12:51 pm Rep. Akin did not “mispeak” — the fallacy he expressed has been promulgated by a doctor Mitt Romney is proud to call a supporter and has been oft repeated by politicians seeking to dictate the private medical care of women. It’s a misnomer to call these people “pro-life” — they are merely pro-birth. Witness their lack of concern for children born into poverty and their strident support for gutting public education for ample evidence of their “pro-life” hypocrisy.

We must speak up. The time has passed to let these comments to go by with no response. In turning nightmares into dreams of justice, the Episcopal Women’s Caucus will actively work to ensure that people are informed and not misinformed. We actively work to promote the well-being of all people. Each woman should have the right to choose how to best care for herself, her whole self. Because we are made in the image of God, and that is sacred.The Episcopal Women’s Caucus is a justice organization dedicated to Gospel values of equality and liberation and committed to the incarnation of God’s unconditional love. For more information, visit August 27, 2012 at 3:07 am I can’t tell you how the notion of “outrage” strikes me in general. When people of faith present themselves as “outraged,” I usually offer the comment, “So what?” In this context, someone got something wrong — an important thing, mind you. But I am not outraged. Upset or perturbed — maybe even pissed off, but not outraged. I get outraged when innocent people are being annihilated in Syria, while no one does anything. I get outraged when thousands die, when serums and the technology for clean water is readily available. I get outraged when the best technology we can come up with to resolve the perils of rape and traumatic pregnancy is termination. We are so cautious in the use of the scalpel in so many procedures, why are we so quick to suggest it in so many cases as a right? I get outraged when living things aren’t given the chance to live out their potential because of circumstances beyond their control –because of the trauma their presence will cause. Can we redirect the energy wasted in outrage to better purposes and strategies?

Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Shreveport, LA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel August 29, 2012 at 8:20 pm Regardless of whether Mr. Aiken misspoke, the real nightmare is the suggestion that government assistance for killing a fetus because it was conceived by rape has anything to do with justice. Mr. Akin may want to turn the clock back to the 1960s, but it sounds like the Women’s Caucus want to turn it back to somewhere around the Bronze Age (see Exodus 20:5).

Additionally, the Episcopal Women’s Caucus calls upon the membership and leadership of the Episcopal church — at international, national, diocesan and local levels — to write to their representatives, senators and other legislators to express their outrage and distress about this archaic ideology and deeply flawed theology that is the foundation of this political and anti-women position.

Dutch design studio Lab-S has renovated a 30’s row house in the city of Utrecht (the Netherlands) and added a contemporary two story extension in harmony with the old house. The house has been made suitable for a young family with three kids as each floor has been given a new layout. Also, the old extension at the back of the house has been replaced by a new one of the same size. The design of this new façade is inspired by the old rear façade, with its large amount of window frames. Lab-S chose to keep the steel structure of the new extension in sight and add new steel window frames in the same colour. The result is a robust and at the same time slender looking extension that lets natural light enter deep into the old building.Save this picture!© Suzanne PaapThe new living room on the ground floor is positioned at the back of the house, near the garden. This space is separated from the dining room and kitchen through high (glazed) steel doors that not only function as a room divider, but also serve as an eye-catcher in the living area.Save this picture!SectionTwo new bathrooms are located in the middle of the house on the first and second floor. Since these bathrooms are not positioned at a facade, Lab-S proposed a large skylight in the middle of the roof bringing in natural light into the two super imposed bathrooms.

A home for a young family and grandmother (in the future). All areas of the home had to be wheelchair accessible, complying with the gold standard of the ‘Liveable Housing Design Guidelines’ which calls for wider hallways, doorways, and circulation space generally. This also meant the design needed to address the slope in the site, through ramps and graded paths to enable a person to transverse from front boundary to rear boundary without going up or down a step. (Note: this also makes for an easy move-in day for the furniture movers!)Save this picture!© Dion RobesonThe program called for three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a home office, and a spacious living area. A key part of the brief was the inclusion of a ‘granny flat’, with its own ensuite and kitchenette, and a private entry.

Sustainability runs through to the bones in this house, literally. Even the timber used in the wall studs and the cabinetry carcasses are ‘FSC certified’. It’s easy to forget these materials that are hidden from view, but when an owner is serious about sustainability and is prepared to invest in them it results in a greater sustainable outcome. The building is clad in recycled spotted gum, with the intention of it ‘silvering’ over time.

Lords worried Olympics lottery funding could impact on good causes

He explained both of NCVO’s main recommendations, that the 12% duty on lottery tickets should be split between good causes and prizes, and, secondly, rather than granting the Secretary of State reserve powers to makepayments from the National Lottery distribution fund into the Olympic Lottery Distribution fund, powers should be granted to enable the transfer of unclaimed prizes, worth more than £590 million, to the Olympics.

In a dramatic development, the petition was removed from the bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and K M Joseph. The unofficial explanation is that the listing of the case before the bench of Justice Chandrachud was a mistake. “As per the practice and procedure in use, the said matter should have been listed before the Bench which is already seized with a similar matter, but it has been listed by ignoring established practise and procedure. In this regard, explanations of concerned officials have been called”, the reports said.SC Registry said that the writ petition had sought a stay of the contempt proceedings pending before the bench led by Justice Arun Mishra and as a coordinate bench cannot stay proceedings pending before another bench, the petitions should have been listed before the same bench. Justice Mishra Led Bench Hearing Two Contempt Cases Against BhushanA bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra is considering two contempt cases against Prashant Bhushan. One is an 11-year old case over his remarks in 2009 to an interview in Tehelka magazine that at least half of the 16 CJIs were corrupt. Today, Justice Arun Mishra led bench decided to hold a detailed hearing on whether to accept the explanation tendered by him. Another is a suo moto case taken two weeks back over two of his tweets about CJI and Supreme Court. The bench had reserved the case for orders. Last week, Justice Mishra led bench had also dismissed the writ petition filed by  Bhushan against Secretary General of SC alleging procedural irregularities in accepting the contempt petition without the sanction of Attorney General.   Petition challenging Constitutional Validity Of ‘Scandalizing the Court’ Offence The writ petition filed by the trio under Article 32 of the Constitution challenges the provisions as being violative of fundamental right to free speech under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution, as being vague and subjective, and also as being manifestly arbitrary. The petitioners argue that the provision fails the test of over-breadth, abridges the right to free speech and expression in the absence of “real and tangible” harm, and creates a “chilling effect” on the free speech and expression. The provision is also challenged on the ground of “manifest arbitrariness”, on the basis of principles laid down by the SC in Shayara Bano (Triple Talaq case) and Navtej Johar (decriminalization of homosexuality).The petition states that one of the petitioner, N Ram had to face a criminal contempt proceedings in Kerala High Court over a publication of court proceedings in Kollam Liquor tragedy case, which was later closed. Shourie had to face contempt proceedings over an editorial written about the functioning of Justice Kuldeep Singh Commission. In 2014, the SC held that the publication did not amount to contempt, accepting the defence of truth raised by him (Subramanian Swamy v Arun Shourie (2014) 12 SCC 344).  Next Storylast_img read more

Family shares Christmas spirit in a country way

I love you. Will you bring me a big castle… read more The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… For about 15 years, Green, his wife, Rosie, and son, Huey, have combined their efforts to put together a unique, outdoor Christmas display that is both a celebration of the season and a tribute to their way of life.“I pull the tractor and the peanut picker out in the pasture and leave the rest to my wife and son,” Green said, with a smile.The “rest” is the challenge to outline the tractor and the picker with colorful Christmas lights and put Santa Claus in the cab. Santa knows better than anyone that “Nothing runs like a Deere.”“It’s not all that hard to get the lights the way you want them except the lights come on at alternating times so that it looks like the wheels on the tractors and picker are turning and the peanuts are being picked,” Huey Green said. “We’ve been doing this a long time and we like doing it. It’s part of our Christmas.” Atlas Green said the tractor and peanut picker displays are his family’s Christmas tradition.“We don’t do anything else that I would say is tradition other than Christmas dinner,” he said. “We always have Christmas dinner with somebody and it’s not always family. For me, for us, Christmas is about giving to others. To me, that’s what Christmas is all about and that’s what I enjoy doing at Christmas.”Sharing their love of country with those who travel along the stretch of highway between Brundidge and Tarentum maybe be “the” Christmas tradition for the Greens. But they are tradition-rich when it comes to Thanksgiving.Each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, they host a syrup making and hog killing at Green Acres. There’s no need to say “y’all come” because they couldn’t beat folks away with a stick even if they wanted to, which they don’t.“We like the syrup making and hog killing at Thanksgiving but, when Christmas comes, we just like to keep things simple in a country kind of way,” Green said. “I’m happy and satisfied right where I am,” Green said. “I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. The city is not for me.”Green Acres is the place for him.Green lives just off Highway 125 below Brundidge and he’s found a way to say, “Merry Christmas” to passersby in a country-appreciation kind of way.

Deadly explosion at California day spa wasn’t an accident, officials say

first_imgABC News(ALISO VIEJO, Calif) — The mysterious, deadly explosion that rocked a Southern California day spa on Tuesday doesn’t appear to have been an accident, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI said Wednesday.The powerful explosion in Aliso Viejo, which is about 50 miles south of Los Angeles, left one woman — believed to be the day spa owner — dead and three others injured.The motive is not clear, officials said Wednesday, adding that no arrests have been made.The working theory is that the explosion was from a device, the FBI said. Two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News that preliminary indications are that the device was inside a package that was delivered to the business.The blast sent plumes of white smoke into the air and debris flying into the parking lot.Witness Dong Shin told ABC News he heard a booming sound and then “felt the ground shake.”When he saw fire and debris, Shin said, his first thought was a bomb.At least 1 killed, 3 injured after mysterious explosion rocks medical buildingChildren at a day care facility across the street from the building were evacuated. Some were seen walking outside holding hands, while others were wheeled out in cribs.No children were hurt, officials said.“It’s horrible, it’s a tragedy,” Orange County Fire Authority spokesman Tony Bommarito told ABC News. “Anytime you’re near this or you see it, it’s going to affect you.”The scene has been rendered safe, the city said.
