Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 4th January, 2020 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images Forget the National Lottery! I think this could be an easier way to get rich If you play the National Lottery, you have a one in 45m chance of winning the jackpot.With odds like that, you’re more likely to lose money than win a multi-million-pound fortune over a lifetime of playing. You have a higher chance of winning in a casino than you do with the Lottery. 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…With that being the case, if you want to get rich, I’d avoid the National Lottery altogether and buy stocks instead. Investing for the future Some people think that investing in the stock market is gambling. But that’s not the case. Buying stocks means buying a part of a fully operational business, which is hopefully generating profits that should rise over time.That’s nothing like gambling. Indeed, the National Lottery is technically classed as gambling as there’s no guarantee of a win. What’s more, if you invest in the market using a fund or investment trust, you’re buying a basket of stocks, managed by professional investors, which substantially increases your chances of making a profit over the long term. Passive tracker One of the most straightforward ways to invest in the market is to buy a passive tracker fund.A FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 tracker allows investors to track the market for less than 1% in management fees every year. When you buy the fund, there’s no need to worry about picking stocks or rebalancing the portfolio. All you need to do is sit back and let the market work its magic. According to my calculations, over the past two decades, the FTSE 250 has produced an annual return of around 11%. At this rate, it would take just 6.5 years to double your initial investment. This rate of return is even more impressive when you take into account the fact that you might not win anything on the National Lottery over the same time frame, even if you played twice a week for six years. It all adds upGetting rich with the FTSE 250 takes time, but it is straightforward. My figures tell me that an investment of just £200 a month for 30 years would grow to be worth £570,000, assuming an average annual rate of return of 11%. On the other hand, a National Lottery player, who plays five numbers twice a week at the cost of £2 a play, would spend a total of £31,200 trying to win the jackpot. That’s a difference of £601,200 over three decades.The bottom lineSo overall, while the National Lottery might seem like an easy way to get rich, in reality, you are more likely to miss out on a fortune than win one.As a result, I believe that most savers would be better off investing their money over the long term rather than gambling their hard-earned savings away on a game with a one in 45m chance of winning.  Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Market crash: is this the perfect chance to buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks and become an ISA millionaire?

Market crash: is this the perfect chance to buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks and become an ISA millionaire? Stock market investing has created many millionaires over the years. And even a few billionaires if you include the excessive wealth of Warren Buffett and his peers.But this isn’t the sole preserve of the already wealthy. A stock market crash gives ordinary investors the opportunity to embark on the road to riches. This is the time when even the best quality companies, such as those in the FTSE 100, are trading below value. Buying bargain shares during a market crash can prove very lucrative long term.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…Stock market declineUK data shows the economy in March-April contracted to a level last seen in 2002. While this may be the low point of an economic crash, recovery will be slow. As the UK starts to reopen, its troubles are far from over. The Bank of England governor has warned the deepest recession in three centuries could be on the cards. I think this means further stock market crashes are highly likely.However, a market crash also throws up opportunities. Many of UK’s wealthiest companies, found in the FTSE 100, have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. But, given time, I’m confident they’ll recover.A disciplined approach to investingSuccessful investors are disciplined in their commitment to investing through a regular payment plan. A Stocks and Shares ISA is the simplest place for you to set this up and start building your wealth.It’s easy to open one and contribute a regular monthly amount. It’s also very simple to manage your portfolio actively. You can choose from a wealth of products to invest in and the tax-free allowance for the year is £20k.Inside a Stocks and Shares ISA, you can buy individual equities, index funds that track the performance of your favourite indices, bonds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), or investment trusts. A selection of each is a great way to diversify your portfolio and hedge against risk.Your tax-free allowance means you can invest up to £20k, but it also means any profit you make on that sum, or dividends you receive from your shares, won’t be taxed either. That’s what makes it such a sensible option for ordinary investors. It arguably carries more risk than a traditional savings account but, equally, it offers far more scope for reward.Becoming an ISA millionaireOn the road to becoming an ISA millionaire, compound interest is your friend. By reinvesting your dividends, you increase the interest you earn on your interest. This is the trick successful investors use to make their wealth grow substantially.If you invest £285 a month and your investments bring you a return of 8% a year, it’ll take you around 40 years to reach £1m. This may be too far in the future for older investors, but for those young enough, it’s worth getting started. If you don’t have a 40-year time frame, this can be reduced by increasing the monthly investment, or the percentage annual return.For risk-averse investors, the FTSE 100 offers a margin of safety. Although many FTSE 100 companies have cancelled their dividends in response to the pandemic, I’m sure they’ll reinstate them when things settle down.center_img Enter Your Email Address I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Resoluciones en la Convención General contra la violencia armada

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Featured Events Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] En tanto 1.500 participantes de la Convención se unieron, en la mañana del 28 de junio en esta ciudad, a una procesión de Obispos unidos contra la violencia armada, varias resoluciones que denunciaban esa violencia se abrían paso a través del proceso legislativo [de la Convención].La devota procesión recorrió la media milla que va desde el Centro de Convenciones Salt Palace hasta el Parque del Pionero [Pioneer Park] mientras los manifestantes cantaban himnos y oraban. Miembros de agrupaciones contrarias a la violencia armada y organizaciones pro derechos civiles de Utah se sumaron al desfile.El obispo Eugene Sutton, de la Diócesis de Maryland, dijo que la sociedad enfrenta lo que él llamo una “impía trinidad” de pobreza, racismo y violencia. El obispo primado electo, Michael Curry, les dijo a los participantes que ellos se habían levantado temprano para participar en la procesión a las 7:15 A.M. porque esa “impía trinidad amenaza la vida de todos nosotros”.“Pero estamos realmente aquí porque hay otra trinidad”, dijo él. “Hay otra trinidad que no es una trinidad impía. Hay otra trinidad que es una trinidad santa. Una trinidad dadora de vida”.Las temperaturas en Salt Lake City han oscilado entre 32 y 39 grados C. desde que obispos, diputados y personal y voluntarios de la Convención comenzaron a llegar aquí el 22 de junio. Una hora antes de la procesión, la temperatura era de 23 grados C. y durante el día fue subiendo constantemente hasta alcanzar los 39 grados a las 6:30 P.M.La resolución más abarcadora que enfrentan los obispos y los diputados, la C005 de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, insta a los legisladores en todas las instancias del gobierno a poner en vigor leyes que exijan verificación de antecedentes penales y adiestramiento relativo a la seguridad de las armas de fuego, para poder comprarlas; la prohibición de ciertos tipos de armas de asalto, de cargadores de alta capacidad y de los equipos para convertir armas mecánicas en automáticas; medidas enérgicas contra el tráfico de armas y la promoción de fondos para la investigación sobre la violencia armada. La última versión de la resolución pide que se reconozca “el impacto de las actuales leyes de la herencia en el traspaso de la propiedad de las armas” y elimina el llamado de la resolución original a la imposición de impuestos por la venta de armas y municiones, y un crédito en los impuestos personales sobre los ingresos a los que entreguen armas de fuego en programas de recompra de armas.La Resolución B008, propuesta por el obispo Ian Douglas de la Diócesis de Connecticut, insta a las diócesis “a abogar porque los que compren armas cortas obtengan la licencia en sus contextos locales”.Una resolución de la III Provincia que se originó en la Diócesis de Bethlehem, la C030, le pide a la Iglesia que inste al presidente de EE.UU. y a los líderes del Congreso a que promulguen leyes que “prohíban la venta, traspaso, importación y fabricación de armas totalmente automáticas y de cargadores de alto calibre, de municiones antiblindados y de equipos que conviertan los alimentadores de municiones en cargadores capaces de llevar más de 10 proyectiles”.La Resolución D018, propuesta por el Rdo. William Exner, que encabeza la diputación de Nuevo Hampshire, insta a los episcopales a pedirles a los legisladores en todas las instancias del gobierno “a apoyar políticas públicas que frenen la violencia armada al exigir e implantar verificaciones de antecedentes universales en todas las ventas [de armas]; la prohibición de todas las ventas futuras de armas semiautomáticas de las que usan los militares, de municiones de alto impacto y de cargadores de alta capacidad; y que se exijan permisos para portar armas ocultas”.La matanza de alumnos y personal en la escuela elemental de Sandy Hook en diciembre de 2012 dio lugar a la Resolución C005, dijo el Rdo. Gary Commins, rector de la iglesia de San Lucas [St. Luke’s] en Long Beach, California, y diputado diocesano. Él predicó un sermón en la Fiesta de los Santos Inocentes acerca de esta matanza a tiros, en la que invitó a los que estuvieran interesados en encontrar medios para combatir la violencia armada a reunirse en enero de 2013. Entre otras decisiones, esto llevó a la aprobación de una resolución que ahora ha sido sometida a la consideración de la Convención General.Los auspiciadores de la resolución intentaron proponer acciones legislativas que pudieran lograrse en la próxima década, dijo Commins. Si bien una legislación federal podría no aprobarse, “los estados pueden de seguro promulgar cosas”.“Para mí, el argumento de esto es que sólo estamos intentando limitar la violencia armada”, dijo. “En verdad no estamos abordando el problema cultural del pueblo violento que somos”.Su propia pasión en torno al tema proviene de una experiencia de primera mano con los resultados de la violencia armada como un sacerdote en varias parroquias: un tiroteo a las puertas de su iglesia durante un estudio bíblico; feligreses retenidos a punta de pistola y puestos boca abajo en la acera; el suicidio de un joven de 16 años con una pistola; una niña de 12 años a quien alcanzó un balazo en la frente mientras iba de camping con sus padres.La experiencia personal con la violencia armada también alimenta la pasión sobre el tema del obispo Scott Hayashi de la Diócesis de Utah, a quien le dispararon a quemarropa en el costado durante un robo mientras trabajaba en una tienda de discos en Tacoma, Washington, cuando tenía 19 años.Como cuenta en un vídeo en el que llama a un diálogo de todas las partes sobre el tema de detener la violencia armada, él pasó dos meses en el hospital y años de ulterior reflexión y oración para recuperarse.Hayashi le dijo a ENS él se sentía “indeciso” respecto a las resoluciones de la Convención General. “¿Quién no querría hacer lo que estas resoluciones instan?”, preguntó. “Creo que nosotros, como Convención, aprobaremos ésas. Creo que las aprobaremos fácilmente”.Pero, añadió, “creo a veces que nosotros en la Iglesia Episcopal hacemos declaraciones audaces, y no necesariamente llevamos a cabo algo con ellas”.La aprobación de las resoluciones ayudará a los promotores [de esa causa], que puedan señalarlas como la posición oficial de la Iglesia. “En ese sentido estoy a favor”, dijo.Él ve la necesidad, sin embargo, de que se entable una conversación a fondo con todo el mundo en la mesa —los que abogan por el control de las armas, los dueños de armas, los miembros de la Asociación Nacional del Fusil (NRA), las víctimas de la violencia de las armas de fuego y sus familias— sobre cómo combatir la violencia armada, dijo. “Creo que donde estamos como nación es un sitio de profundas divisiones, donde ni siquiera podemos tener la conversación”.“Sí las resoluciones [de la Convención General] son buenas”, recalcó. Pero “si uno realmente quiere que nuestro gobierno actúe, uno tiene que crear una corriente de opinión”.Para generar eso, el primer paso es crear un espacio de diálogo seguro, para decir: “tenemos un problema. Estas armas de fuego se están usando para matar personas inocentes. Están en malas manos. ¿Qué podemos hacer para frenar esto?”, arguyó él. La Iglesia Episcopal tiene la posibilidad de crear ese espacio, sugirió Hayashi.El desfile del 28 de junio contra la violencia armada “un llamado a exigir un terreno común”, dijo. “Yo creo que tenemos muchísimo más terreno común del que la mayoría de las personas se da cuenta”.Commins fue mostró menos entusiasta respecto a propiciar un diálogo con todos los participantes, arguyendo que los dueños de armas y la NRA habían dispuesto de muchísimo tiempo publicitario y que era más necesario escuchar a los afectados por la violencia armada.“Creo que debería imponérseles, a los dueños de armas, una moratoria de un año para hablar de armas”, afirmó. Al día siguiente de que no maten a nadie en Estados Unidos con un arma de fuego, “los dueños de armas pueden empezar a hablar otra vez”.— Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

Foto de Robert Howe.[Episcopal News Service – Los Ángeles] El obispo primado Michael Curry citó al profeta Isaías y al dicho de Robert Fulghum, “todo lo que necesito saber lo aprendí en el kindergarten”, cautivando a un nutrido público que celebraba el natalicio de Martin Luther King el 15 de enero en Los Ángeles, y retándolo a avanzar en tiempos difíciles mediante la búsqueda de la “sabiduría antigua… probada y cierta y demostrada”.Curry suscitó las risas, el aplauso, las aclamaciones y una ovación de pie de cientos de episcopales y luteranos que participaron de la histórica celebración conjunta. Él recalcó el tema de Isaías “Miren la roca” (51:1-2) con su característico estilo de predicar, enérgico, extemporáneo y ululante que atribuye a la influencia de su abuela, “una bautista recalcitrante de convicción”.Recordó la dispersión de los israelitas durante el exilio babilónico. “Esto es lo que dijo el profeta: ‘Ustedes, los que van tras la justicia y buscan al Señor, ¡escúchenme! Miren la roca de la que fueron tallados, la cantera de la que fueron extraídos. Miren a Abraham, su padre, y a Sara, que los dio a luz’. Miren la roca”.Al tiempo que reconocía la actual incertidumbre y ambigüedad política, Curry enfatizó los temas de la unidad, el amor y la creación de relaciones: “Es oportuno que conmemoremos el natalicio del Dr. Martin Luther King en este momento y en este tiempo. Lo necesitamos [a él] urgentemente ahora”.El obispo Guy Erwin del Sínodo Sudoccidental de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América calificó la reunión conjunta de “histórica” y le dio la bienvenida a todos los feligreses, entre ellos Curry y otros episcopales, así como a Elizabeth Eaton, obispa presidente de la IELA, al alcalde de Los Ángeles Eric Garcetti y a representantes del Departamento de la Policía de Los Ángeles.Erwin también le dio las gracias a Diane Jardine Bruce, obispa sufragánea de la Diócesis Episcopal de Los Ángeles por la “gran alegría” de la estrecha relación de trabajo que le ha permitido a las dos iglesias colaborar en la conmemoración de King. Más tarde, en una mesa redonda, él también resaltó [la labor de] un equipo de trabajo conjunto contra la violencia armada.Bruce transmitió los saludos del obispo de Los Ángeles Jon Bruno, que no pudo asistir luego de un resbalón y una caída menor en el hielo durante una visita en Oregón. “Este es en verdad nuestro primer servicio multicultural [en memoria] de Martin Luther King que se celebra entre la IELA y la Iglesia Episcopal, y yo espero que no sea el último”, dijo Bruce.El obispo primado Michael Curry fue el predicador invitado en la histórica celebración conjunta episcopal-luterana y participó luego en una mesa redonda.

Incluía la impactante música del canónigo Chas Cheatham y la Sociedad Coral Episcopal, y los coros luteranos. El servicio, por momentos conmovedor y divertido, puede verse aquí.Entre aplausos, Curry le dijo al Alcalde, que también le dirigió la palabra a la asamblea, “Necesitamos líderes políticos como usted. Lo necesitamos”.Garcetti le dijo a los fieles que la diversidad y el propósito de la reunión “nos recuerda lo que es posible. Me siento en casa aquí, el producto de un padre católico y de una madre judía que se tranzó y me envió a una iglesia episcopal”, dijo en medio de risas.Reconociendo el tenso clima político actual, recordó el mandato de King de “pónganse en los zapatos de los demás…y dejen que sus relatos abran nuestros corazones y nuestras almas”. Especialmente a los que son vulnerables, como “los estudiantes [que] irán a la escuela esta semana en nuestra ciudad preguntándose si sus padres estarán en casa cuando ellos vuelvan luego del cambio de gobierno.“Los estudiantes que tomarán decisiones respecto a si abandonan la escuela porque no tendrán esperanzas ni empleo. Cuando vemos a personas que salen de prisión preguntándose si tendrán otro camino cuando vuelvan [a la sociedad]”.Ahora es el momento de los profetas y los pastores, dijo Garcetti. “Debemos trazar el rumbo, como hizo el Dr. King, hacia dónde debemos ir, pero también debemos tenderle nuestra mano al prójimo y cerciorarnos de que ellos vienen con nosotros”.Parafraseando a la ex primera dama Eleanor Roosevelt, él dijo que los derechos humanos “comienzan en lugares tan pequeños que no aparecen en ningún mapa humano: los lugares en que trabajamos, los lugares en que vivimos, los lugares en que adoramos”.Resaltando que el sueño del Dr. King abarcaba tanto la igualdad racial como la económica, él retó a los feligreses a usar “el poder que tenemos” estando unidos. Ese poder, dijo, le permitió a los angelinos aumentar recientemente el salario mínimo a $10,50, cuando el salario mínimo federal es de $7,25, y aprobar también una iniciativa para albergar a indigentes.“Sabemos lo que sentimos en nuestros corazones, lo que pensamos en nuestras cabezas y, visceralmente, hacia donde debemos avanzar en estos próximos días, es que el Dr. King no esperaría que nos conformáramos con sentarnos aquí a lamentarnos, sino que saliéramos e hiciéramos algo.El sermón de Curry evocó la imagen del ave sankofa, un símbolo ghanés “que le recordaba a la gente que el camino hacia un futuro incierto consiste en saber cómo mirar atrás y cosechar sabiduría del pasado y fuerza de los antepasados, de manera que uno pueda marchar adelante en tiempos inciertos y ambiguos”.Él recordó el descubrimiento en 1991 de un cementerio de africanos esclavos y libertos en el Bajo Manhattan, que ahora es un monumento nacional. Grabado en uno de los sarcófagos de madera, los obreros descubrieron ese símbolo, el de la sankofa, que traducido al español significa aproximadamente “regresa y tómalo”.“El profeta hebreo entendió esto”, dijo Curry, refiriéndose a Isaías, que predicó durante la dispersión judía. “Escúchenme, los que van tras la justicia … en un momento de auténtica polarización e incertidumbre y de profunda división… Escúchenme los que buscan al Señor. Miren la roca… a la sabiduría antigua. Presten atención a la forma de antaño, probada y cierta y demostrada”.“El profeta (Isaías) lo sabía … él estaba haciendo sankofa. Mirar a la sabiduría del pasado. Traerla al presente para adentrarse en el futuro. Este era un momento en que el pueblo judío encontraba su mundo perturbado. Su mundo había sido de una manera, un día, y al siguiente era una pesadilla.“Estos eran los tiempos en que, como dice James Weldon Johnson (Lift Every Voice and Sing), la esperanza había muerto antes de nacer… y es en este contexto en el que el profeta hebreo le habla a su pueblo. Escúchenme, los que buscan el sueño de Dios en medio de una pesadilla… ustedes que creen en el amor.“Miren la roca de la que una vez fueron tallados y a la cantera de la que fueron extraídos. Miren a Abraham. Miren a Sara. Miren a Martin. O, mejor aún, miren a Jesús. La verdad es…ignoramos la sabiduría del pasado por nuestra cuenta y riesgo”.Citando las lecciones del libro de Fulghum, tales como compartir las cosas y jugar limpio, Curry provocó la risa al preguntar: “¿Pueden imaginarse el Congreso con esto?”Retornando a las “profundas raíces de quienes somos” al honrar los principios fundamentales y los inalienables derechos de la nación, la vida, la libertad y la búsqueda de la felicidad, Curry dijo que “habremos de encontrar nuestro camino hacia delante como nación”.“Pero,” añadió que “para nosotros que somos cristianos, que andamos en el camino de Jesús, estos van a ser tiempos difíciles. Porque habrá ocasiones en que sentiremos que debemos reaccionar al odio y al prejuicio y al error con más odio y prejuicio y error. Habrá ocasiones que estaremos tan heridos y tan enojados que queramos responder con ira”.El citó la “Carta desde una cárcel de Birmingham”, un punto de inflexión en el movimiento de los derechos civiles, en la cual King instruía a los activistas a meditar en la vida y enseñanzas de Jesús mientras se preparaban a marchar. “Recuerden que el movimiento no violento busca la justicia y la reconciliación, nunca la victoria”, escribió King.En un mensaje en que resuenan los principios de Jesús, ellos [los activistas] también fueron instruidos a vivir en amor “de manera que todos los hijos de Dios puedan un día ser libres”.No, dijo Curry, “porque sea fácil, sino porque el amor es la única vía”.Y añadió: conciban un mundo “que trate a todo el mundo como a un hijo de Dios… entonces Estados Unidos de América será en verdad Estados Unidos de América y entonces cuando celebremos el natalicio de Martin Luther King, qué gran día será. Podremos decir, libres al fin, feliz cumpleaños Martin King”.Curry integró una mesa redonda después del oficio. Los panelistas dijeron que la Iglesia puede empezar a vivir el sueño de King de una manera más efectiva creando relaciones en sus comunidades.Eaton, de la IELA, dijo que un pastor entabló una relación con la policía local a raíz de la muerte de Amadou Diallo en El Bronx, Nueva York, en 1999. Diallo era un joven de 22 años de África Occidental a quien la policía le hizo más de 40 disparos al pensar erróneamente que portaba un arma de fuego.En lugar de adoptar una “mentalidad de nosotros contra ellos”, el pastor se adhirió a la visión de King de “nosotros juntos”, dijo ella.El comandante Phil Tingirides de la Agencia Sur del Departamento de la Policía de Los Ángeles, dijo que la policía se asocia regularmente con las iglesias porque “se espera que ustedes sean líderes dentro de la comunidad, un lugar donde las personas vienen a oír cómo ser buenas, a oír cómo llegar a las personas necesitadas”.“La gran mayoría de las personas involucradas en delitos son personas necesitadas”, que tienen problemas de amor, de control de la ira, y problemas económicos y mentales, afirmó él.“Este servicio en el que participamos hoy fue asombroso; ustedes tuvieron personas de procedencias tan diversas, diferentes religiones, diferentes creencias y esa es la manera en que vamos a resolver muchísimos de los problemas raciales”, añadió. “Llegando a conocernos unos a otros, acercándonos y entendiéndonos mutuamente. Las iglesias son un lugar para eso. Ustedes tienen un enorme papel [que desempeñar] que no termina el domingo cuando las puertas se cierran”.John Taylor, obispo coadjutor electo de Los Ángeles, dijo que, si bien los primeros años del movimiento de los derechos civiles fueron para cambiar las leyes discriminatorias, en los años posteriores King habló contra la guerra de Vietnam y “se pronunció por una verdadera revolución de valores, para tratar de pensar en un camino a una sociedad que supere las inequidades estructurales y económicas y que avance unida”.Curry convino en que las iglesias pueden ser “comunidades puente que unan a la gente… que podrían no ser aquellos con los que nos relacionamos. Eso, en sí, es parte de elaborar juntos el contrato del tejido social que necesitamos en este país y que es el fundamento para que cualquier democracia pueda funcionar”.A un joven de 18 años que se preguntaba cómo los jóvenes podrían ayudar a marcar la diferencia, Curry le respondió: “Tienen que ser sabios, ser inteligentes. Presten atención a ustedes mismos. No teman defender lo que es justo y ayudar a cualquiera que no tenga a nadie que lo ayude.“La verdad es que hay más personas buenas allá afuera, hay muchas más personas buenas allá afuera…pero muchísimas veces se asustan de los que vociferan a su alrededor. Y si alguien da un paso al frente y junta a los buenos, lo cierto es que pueden resultar vencedores.“Ustedes pueden, aunque es difícil. Pero no se rindan”.–La Rda.

first_img Rector Collierville, TN Rector Shreveport, LA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Press Release Service Featured Events Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA By David Paulsen and Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted May 24, 2019 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Episcopalians begin recovery in states ripped by tornadoes, as they watch for more storms The Diocese of Missouri said May 23 that initial reports from the Rev. Ian Lasch at Grace Church in Jefferson City are that the building is intact, although there has been at least some minor damage to a door.“We do, however, have a fair amount of debris deposited around the church and in the courtyard,” the congregation said on its Facebook page May 24, announcing a gathering for later in the day to pick up the debris. “We will have pizza for everyone who comes to help. There is a little bit of broken glass in the courtyard, so if you have them, please bring a pair of work gloves.“We will likely have plenty of help, so work may go quickly. If we finish too soon, we can always do some further cleanup around the block and in the neighborhood.”A few photos of the damage in Jefferson City. The Patrol is assisting @JeffCityPolice and the Cole County Sheriff’s Department with efforts after last night’s tornado. #mowx pic.twitter.com/z7fZhIsysm— MSHP General HQ (@MSHPTrooperGHQ) May 23, 2019Jefferson City’s downtown churches are hosting an afternoon service May 26 at the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) for “prayer and reflection focused on lifting up to God those who have been in harm’s way, the resilience of our community, the safe-keeping of our neighbors, and the future of our city as we rebuild and re-imagine our shared future.”Members of nearby St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Portland, Missouri, have checked in with one another, and they and the church appear to be fine, according to the diocese.The Rev. Paul Snyder, a deacon who is the Diocese of Oklahoma’s disaster recovery coordinator, told Episcopal News Service late on May 23 that “we are in the middle of the disaster,” and residents there expect more storms to come. The diocese is a member of the Oklahoma Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, or VOAD, and Episcopalians serve on the spiritual care and long-term recovery committees.VOAD set up mobile area resource centers in the small towns of Haileyville and Blue. The diocese gave out $2,500 in gift cards at the two centers to help people get personal and hygiene items, Snyder said in an emailed message.“The main thing that most are concerned with now is the flooding,” he wrote. “Several state highways look like lakes. They are opening dams to save them, which is causing flooding downstream. The Cimarron River has eroded 20 feet of shore line and washed away two homes. There are more homes hanging over the edge.”The small town of Webbers Falls, Oklahoma, was evacuated as two unmoored barges drifted on the Arkansas River and smashed into the nearby lock and dam.Snyder said Tulsa, Oklahoma, has had two tornadoes as well as severe flooding causing some evacuations.Episcopal Relief & Development is in touch with the Diocese of Missouri as it prepares to respond the needs of communities affected by the tornadoes, flooding and severe weather. The organization said earlier this week that its U.S. disaster team is supporting dioceses in their potential response efforts to flooding across the Midwest this spring.The extreme weather that has ripped through the country’s midsection began late last week with a string of tornadoes from Nebraska to Texas. Some injuries and home damage were reported near the airport in Tulsa, but no fatalities were blamed on the more than 50 tornadoes spotted across the region May 17-20.Three people died on May 21 in two separate traffic incidents, in Missouri and Oklahoma, related to heavy rain and flooding, and a tornado-related death was reported May 22 in Iowa, according to AccuWeather.Then, overnight May 22, a new round of tornadoes and thunderstorms passed through central United States, including the tornado that hit Jefferson City.Kenneth Harris, 86, and his 83-year-old wife, Opal, were found dead about 200 yards from their home near Golden City in the southwest corner of Missouri, and Betty Berg, 56, was killed and her husband, Mark, seriously injured when their mobile home was destroyed, according to the AP.The town is less than an hour’s drive from Joplin, Missouri, which was devastated eight years ago by an EF-5 tornado that killed more than 130 people.“Last night’s tornado activity and the increased flooding has been devastating our state,” Missouri Gov. Mike Parson said May 23 on Twitter.

The house is located in an uncontrolled expansion area, comprised of houses of different sizes and ages. The house is built on a challenging site, between party walls, on a 6.5m width plot. The project aims to generate rich spaces, with an element of surprise, combining simple spaces that increase the catalogue of domestic experiences.Save this picture!Courtesy of Esau AcostaThe 6.5m by 20 m plot is stretched vertically in order to add an extra level on the lower ground floor, elevating the ground floor by 1.80 m. This provides privacy from pedestrians at street level.Save this picture!Courtesy of Esau AcostaSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Esau AcostaSave this picture!Second Floor PlanThe house is articulated around two programmatic, seasonal courtyards, the interior one provides for winter activities (cooking and dining), and the exterior courtyard is related to outdoor summer use as a veranda or porch. This covered space at the entrance avoids having openings in the facade looking directly on to the street, creating a transition space between exterior and interior space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Esau AcostaThe continuous presence of the courtyards is also expressed in their materiality: one is made out of wood, the other one of glass and vegetation. The hedonistic illusion of making spaces look bigger is achieved by shifting the stacked volumes, of the same width but different lengths. This displacement resolves issues like the step between the street and the ground floor, direct light to the “heart” of the house and makes a more valuable use of the terraces.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe construction utilises only local materials; the concrete´s thermal inertia is combined with the timber´s warmth in the winter courtyard and the glass´ lightness in the summer courtyard.Save this picture!Courtesy of Esau AcostaProject gallerySee allShow lessuncube Pays Homage to Frei OttoArchitecture NewsAn Interactive Look at Japan’s Tall Building HistoryArchitecture News Share “COPY” “COPY” CopyHouses•El Sauzal, Spainlast_img read more

A dense forest opens to a dune valley. Sunlight casts shadows of branches and leaves against tree trunks. In the distance, a golfer walks through the empty surreal landscape. This unique environment – trees, light and dunes – influences the design of “villa Meijendel” in such a way as if it has sculpted the house.Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyThis in concrete constructed house is literally built into the dunes. The entrance is on the midlevel, where an office and two bedrooms are situated. The next level opens to a huge living room and kitchen. On ground level are a wellness room and the master bedroom. Encapsulated in the dune is a garage and technical room. The concrete construction of the villa establishes the vigorous character of the house.Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyAll materials are unpolished: concrete, steal, wood, burned wood and anodised aluminium. They refer to the unspoiled landscape. The burned wood at the exterior, and the wood used for the ceiling of the main space is Douglas-Fir, a specific wood type growing in coastal areas. In the flat sawn pieces used for the interior of the house, the wood exhibits wild grain patterns. The burning procedure, influenced by Japanese tradition, conserves the wood in a particular way. The blackened façade seems to change by the light. Sometimes the house is almost invisible against the dark edge of the forest, sometimes it sparkles in the sunlight because of the glittering charred wood as such forming a background for the play of shadows of tree trunks and branches. The villa hides and reveals itself in the landscape.Save this picture!© Christian van der KooySave this picture!Level 1Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyRegulations stipulated that only a small and compact volume was allowed to be built on this relatively narrow parcel, on the edge of nature reserve Meijendel. Therefore, the house is half buried in a high dune, with the effect that every side of the house can be experienced in a different way. This is enhanced by the contrast between open and closed facades. The height difference of the dune and the various split levels inside the house create interesting spatial and visual relations from interior spaces towards the environing dune landscape. Each opening in the house has been shaped, sized and positioned in a certain way, related to the functions associated to each space and its relationship with trees, light and dune. From the living room, located at the top floor, there is a breath-taking view over the dune valley in front of the house, but through a low window the forest at the back is visible as well. In addition, roof windows provide special light effects. The bathroom is half-sunken into the ground and has a window along the slope of the dune, generating a view from eyelevel on sand and grass. The master bedroom is situated next to the garden. A set-back and an alternation of burned wood and openings in de façade create a buffer zone providing shelter. Through the opening between the dark trunks, the pool and dense forest are visible.Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyThrough an intensive dialogue between the architect and client, a tailor-made design of the house was made. Sustainability and materiality were prevalent. The house is energy-neutral, because of the use of solar panels, heat pumps and the monolith concrete structure. Every detail, such as door handle or stairs, is precisely thought through and designed.  Villa Meijendel is a fascinating artefact, a sort of wooden forest hut fully integrated in the landscape and with a strong connection between the interior spaces and immediate surroundings. Trees, light and dunes have sculpted this remarkable house.Save this picture!© Christian van der KooyProject gallerySee allShow lessRetreat in Finca Aguy / MAPASelected ProjectsGriss Equine Veterinary Practice / Marte.Marte ArchitectsSelected Projects Share The Netherlands “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/802147/villa-meijendel-vvkh-architecten Clipboard Year:  Projects CopyAbout this officeVVKH architectenOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWassenaarThe NetherlandsPublished on December 27, 2016Cite: “Villa Meijendel / VVKH architecten” 27 Dec 2016.

Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Newcastle Building Society mark £1m total

first_img Savers and investors with the Newcastle Building Society have helped raise £1 million for The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation in just two and a half years, with a small fraction of their account balances being donated to the charity.In Spring 2012 the Society set up ISA and Saver accounts that were branded as supporting the Foundation. Savers knew that 0.1% of the balances held in all the accounts would be donated by the Building Society to the Foundation.In fact, the £1 million pound donation mark was reached in November 2014, just two and a half years after the first accounts were opened.Film shows the impact of the funds raisedTo mark the £1 million total, the two organisations have together produced a six minute film which explains the work of the Foundation, and what the funds are helping it to achieve.It features interviews with Lady Elsie Robson, who co-founded The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation with Sir Bobby in 2008, Newcastle Building Society chief executive Jim Willens, and Professor Ruth Plummer, Clinical Professor of Experimental Cancer Medicine at the Northern Centre for Cancer Care, at which Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre is based.The film can be seen on Newcastle United’s YouTube channel and on the Foundation’s and Society’s websites.[youtube height=”450″ width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izfj8d_VDig[/youtube]Sir Bobby fought cancer over a 17 year period, including the five years in which he was Manager of Newcastle United.Jim Willens, Newcastle Building Society chief executive, said:“Our fundraising work with the Foundation has had such a phenomenal and sustained response from our members that we wanted to do something to provide a lasting record of the impact it’s having on cancer patients both within and outside the North East”.“Our film shines a light on the groundbreaking work that the Foundation and its staff are undertaking, and we’re especially grateful to Alison Baxter for sharing her story with us, which provides a very moving and personal insight into how the Foundation’s support gave her and her family more precious time together with Bob.
