Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares As I write, the share price of the FTSE 100 company International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) is the biggest gainer today. It’s followed closely by easyJet (LSE: EZJ), making it a good day for airlines. Since last month, shares impacted by Covid-19 have gotten some relief. It continues even now. At the same time, 2020 has been so hard on aviation, these companies have been left quite financially weak. Deciding whether to buy these shares or not depends on whether you think the odds are balanced in their favour. I think they are. In fact, I’ve been a shareholder in easyJet since earlier this year when things weren’t looking good at all. If I bought it then, I see no reason not to buy it now. In fact, I’m tempted to load up. Here are three reasons why airline stocks are attractive now: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…#1. Appetite for flights to returnLate last month, easyJet said that searches for holidays and flights had increased by 200% in the UK. This suggested that demand was strong, which was also reflected in the response to its Black Friday sale. While the airline itself is expected to operate at a fraction of its total capacity even early next year, I reckon that this might change for the positive. This is because of the solutions being put in place. IAG-owned British Airways is reportedly trialling testing passengers 72 hours before and after their trip. This can circumvent the need for a 14-day quarantine and increase air travel. Also, Covid-19 vaccination has started, which should begin to relax the situation over the next months. #2. Financials can improveWith rising demand for flights, the financial health of airlines could improve as well. As of now, both easyJet and IAG are in the doldrums. This isn’t any bit surprising considering the limited business they did this year. I don’t think their numbers will improve in a hurry though. I reckon that we’ll be well into 2021 before airlines can start flying anywhere close to capacity, at the very least. But if pent-up demand exists, as pointed out by EZJ, and airlines can fly at increased capacity, at least the financials can start mending as long as they serve profitable routes. I reckon this alone will push share price further up. For proof, I think we just need to look at the airlines’ share price rally since November. #3. Long-term investmentsRealistically though, demand for air travel is expected to go back to 2019 levels only in the next two to three years. Not only is travel less likely because of the pandemic, but economic conditions will be somewhat uncertain for some time. People are less likely to holiday when they feel insecure about their financial future, because they’d rather save. However, we at the Motley Fool are advocates of long-term investments. And I would buy these shares comfortable in the knowledge that they will reap real rewards only in the next few years, not weeks or months.  Manika Premsingh owns shares of easyJet.

William F. Brosend II[University of the South School of Theology press release] The Rev. William F. Brosend II has announced his decision to step down as executive director of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation (EFP), effective June 30, 2015.Brosend, who has served as executive director since 2010, will continue as professor of homiletics at The School of Theology and director of the School’s Doctor of Ministry in Preaching program.“I told the Board of Directors when I accepted their invitation that my goal was to grow the position into an important and interesting full time job. It happened, to be honest, more quickly than I expected.”Founded by A. Gary Shilling, an investment manager and Episcopalian,  in 1988, the Episcopal Preaching Foundation has sponsored the annual Preaching Excellence Program, a week-long preaching intensive for rising senior Episcopal seminarians, for 27 years. Since Brosend moved from board member to executive director the work of the foundation has expanded significantly, holding annual national Episcopal Preaching Conferences since 2010 and providing programs for more than 20 diocesan clergy conferences.This year, the foundation, with support from a grant from the Robertson Foundation, launched a new conference for the recently ordained, and has begun supporting peer groups for sermon preparation and evaluation. They have also put in place plans for a one-on-one mentoring program for preachers.“Bill Brosend led the expansion of the EPF’s work from its original annual preaching conference for seminarians to diocesan conferences co-sponsored by bishops, national preaching conferences, and preaching conferences for Episcopal and Lutheran military chaplains,” Shilling commented. “He has achieved my long-held hope for the expansion of our efforts and the formation of career-long relationships with preachers.”Brosend confirmed the need for a full time executive director, and it is his intention to remain involved in the work of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation. “We have taken significant strides in the last few years, but it is time for the foundation to identify new leadership to take us even further. If asked, I will do everything I can to support my successor in those steps.”Commenting on Brosend’s decision, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said, he has “brought the Episcopal Preaching Foundation to new levels of effectiveness as it has reached out to established preachers as well as emerging ones. His creative initiatives have yielded a harvest so large that it now demands more hours and hands. I can only say, ‘well done, good and faithful servant!’ and at the same time offer deep thanks for his insightful, visionary, and productive leadership. Bill has helped The Episcopal Church respond to changing contexts and realities so that the Word might grow in new fields.”Jefferts Schori continued, “I first encountered the Preaching Excellence Program as a seminarian invited to what was then the annual conference. It was a challenging, informative, and extremely helpful experience. Gary Shilling has had a bee in his bonnet for decades about improving the preaching quality in The Episcopal Church, and his efforts have yielded significant results. He knows that, like the bees he keeps, preachers spread the Word and help it become fruitful across the vineyard.”The foundation hopes to have a new executive director in place in time for the next Preaching Excellence Program set for May 25-30, 2015 at the Roslyn Conference Center in the Diocese of Virginia.

Huelgas climáticas mundiales: la crisis de la Tierra despierta millones

first_imgEn Montreal, provincia de Quebec, Canadá, más de 500.000 personas marcharon el 27 de septiembre en un esfuerzo por detener la crisis climática, en la huelga más grande en la historia de la ciudad, según los organizadores.Este y otros eventos de Global Climate Strike terminaron una semana después, cuando 7,5 millones de personas participaron en 6.135 acciones en 185 países, junto con más de 70 sindicatos nacionales e internacionales, y más de 800 organizaciones que respaldaron y marcharon. La movilización global del 20 al 27 de septiembre fue la mayor participación de personas decididas a defender el planeta contra la explotación y la destrucción. ( manifestantes acusaron enfáticamente a la economía capitalista, las empresas con fines de lucro y los políticos comprados y vendidos como responsables. En los EE.UU., algunos letreros declararon “El capitalismo creó la crisis climática” y “Tontos fósiles” [Fossil fools]. Los lemas en Inglaterra señalaron “Capitalismo de desastre = apocalipsis climático” y pidieron “Cambio del sistema, no cambio climático”. En Escocia, los signos airados proclamaban: “Los ricos se hacen más ricos, el planeta se empobrece” y “¡Salva a las abejas o te romperé las rodillas!”Autumn Peltier (Wikwemikong) se dirigió a la Asamblea General de la ONU en el Día Mundial del Agua, 22 de marzo de 2018.El liderazgo de los pueblos indígenas en la protección de la Tierra y sus seres se destacó en Montreal, donde los jóvenes indígenas lideraron la marcha. Rosalie LaBillois (Mi’kmaw), copresidenta del Consejo Nacional de la Juventud de la Asamblea de las Primeras Naciones, dijo: “Debemos asegurarnos de que nuestras tierras, aguas, seres no humanos, medicinas y sitios sagrados estén protegidos ahora y durante las siete generaciones por venir “( jefe nacional de AFN, Perry Bellegarde, el jefe regional de AFN Yukon, Kluane Adamek, y otros líderes, incluida la activista ambiental sueca Greta Thunberg, marcharon con los jóvenes indígenas. Autumn Peltier (Wikwemikong), quien cumplió 15 años en la marcha, fue nominada recientemente para el Premio Internacional de la Paz de los Niños por su trabajo como Comisionada Jefe del Agua de la Nación Anishinabek.Los pueblos indígenas en estrecha relación con la Tierra han liderado la protección del medio ambiente durante milenios antes de los “movimientos verdes” del siglo XX. La explotación intensificada del planeta en el siglo pasado ha visto medidas intensificadas dirigidas por los pueblos indígenas.El campamento de la Piedra Sagrada, creado en 2016 para bloquear el camino del oleoducto Dakota Access, se convirtió en un sitio de reunión internacional para activistas ambientales.Activistas ambientales indígenas en América Central y del Sur han estado luchando contra la incautación y explotación de sus tierras por parte de colonos y empresas durante siglos, mucho antes de que el Amazonas comenzara a arder.Muchos activistas han perdido la vida en esa lucha, incluida Berta Cáceres de Honduras, ganadora del prestigioso Premio Ambiental Goldman en 2015. Su muerte estuvo vinculada a las fuerzas especiales hondureñas entrenadas en Estados Unidos. Cáceres se oponía a una presa hidroeléctrica financiada internacionalmente. (Ver “Detrás del asesinato de Berta Cáceres”, WW/MO, 19 de marzo de 2017).Las acciones de la huelga mundial del 27 de septiembre se extendieron de Suecia a Marruecos a Canadá, de Nueva Zelanda a India e Italia. En Argentina, la gente marchó en Buenos Aires a la Plaza de Mayo, lugar de resistencia histórica a la opresión en ese país. Alrededor del borde de la Amazonía en peligro, la gente de la selva tropical se manifestó en Brasil, Bolivia, Ecuador y Paraguay.Cerrando la calle, San Francisco Financial District, 25 de septiembre.Estados Unidos parte de acciones globalesEn los Estados Unidos, hubo muchas manifestaciones determinadas en todo el país, tipificadas por dos acciones que tuvieron lugar en la costa este y la costa oeste.En Atlanta, más de 200 personas marcharon el 27 de septiembre en una manifestación militante pidiendo soluciones inmediatas a la crisis climática. El grupo Extinction Rebellion cantó y se apoderó de las calles, concentrándose primero en el Distrito Comercial de Buckhead, la parte más lujosa de la ciudad. Después de bloquear el tráfico y tomar arrestos allí, se trasladaron al distrito comercial de Midtown. Una vez más bloquearon una intersección importante, llevando 19 arrestos en total. El joven grupo multinacional mantuvo su acción enérgica en un día con un nivel de calor récord en los altos 90.El 25 de septiembre, activistas de la huelga climática cerraron las calles principales del distrito financiero de San Francisco y bloquearon las entradas a los principales bancos. Llevando carteles y pancartas y cantando: “¡Gente, sí! Ganancias, no! ¡Big Oil tiene que irse!” Cerraron Wells Fargo, Chase Manhattan, Citibank y Bank of America durante varias horas. Siete personas fueron arrestadas por bloquear todas las puertas y entradas de Wells Fargo, uno de los mayores partidarios financieros de Big Oil.Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero participó y ayudó a organizar una marcha desde una de las intersecciones de calles bloqueadas a una sede local de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas. Dirigido por QUIT (Queers socavando el terrorismo israelí) El grupo bloqueó el camino utilizado por los autobuses de ICE e hizo una fuerte conexión entre la crisis climática y la intensificación de los ataques contra migrantes/inmigrantes.El 27 de septiembre, cientos de jóvenes y sus simpatizantes se manifestaron en las puertas de la sede corporativa de Chevron en San Ramón, California, en el área de la Bahía de San Francisco. Los jóvenes manifestantes no solo pidieron a Chevron que dejara de usar combustible fósil, sino que los jóvenes exigieron que Chevron dejara de envenenar el aire y poner en peligro la vida de las comunidades pobres de color que rodean sus plantas. Muchas pancartas responsabilizaron a Chevron de financiar y beneficiarse de las guerras por el petróleo en todo el mundo.De camino al distrito comercial del centro de Atlanta, el 27 de septiembre.Una delegación de Juventud vs. El Apocalipsis, el principal organizador del evento, fue invitado detrás de las puertas para reunirse con los funcionarios de Chevron. La delegación informó que, como era de esperar, Chevron no se comprometería a dejar de producir combustible fósil o de contaminar el aire en las comunidades pobres alrededor de la bahía.También contribuyeron a este artículo Kathy Durkin, Judy Greenspan y Jimmy Raynor.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

FDA Analysis Demonstrates U.S. Milk Supply is Safe from Drug Residues

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News FDA Analysis Demonstrates U.S. Milk Supply is Safe from Drug Residues Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articlePlenish Acres Growing in Indiana Gary Truitt SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 5, 2015 The report found 15 confirmed positive samples out of 1,912 tested, or 0.7%. There was no statistically significant difference in the results when comparing the target farm group with the random samples. The FDA said the results “are encouraging and indicate that the current system of regulatory oversight results in high rates of industry compliance. The FDA remains confident in the overall safety of the U.S. milk supply.”center_img FDA Analysis Demonstrates U.S. Milk Supply is Safe from Drug Residues “We want to continuously improve the demonstrably-effective processes already in place to keep antibiotics out of milk. These results are great, but we still are aiming for zero positives in the future.” According to Mulhern, the findings “are a positive affirmation of our milk safety in the U.S., although we still need continued education among farmers, veterinarians, and pharmaceutical companies, and a need for continued outreach on how to prevent trace levels of residues in the future. This is a shared responsibility among all of us who are committed to continuing to provide people with a safe, healthy product. SHARE A new report released Thursday by the Food and Drug Administration underscores the safety of the nation’s milk supply, and demonstrates that the regulations to keep drug residues out of milk are effective in protecting the public health, the National Milk Producers Federation said today in reaction to the FDA survey. The milk survey was released by the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine, which sampled the raw milk from nearly 2,000 dairy farms in 2012, and conducted extensive laboratory testing on each milk sample for 31 different pharmaceutical compounds. It found that more than 99 percent of the samples were free of residues, “underscoring the safety of the milk supply,” according to the FDA.“This report proves that America’s dairy farmers are delivering on our commitment to providing safe and wholesome milk to consumers, while working closely with state and federal regulators to continually improve the safety of our products,” said NMPF President and CEO Jim Mulhern. “Dairy farmers have a strong track record of compliance with state and federal milk safety regulations, and we support education and enforcement efforts to further strengthen that record.”The FDA’s objective in the 2012 survey was to determine if those dairy farms with previous drug residue violations in market-bound meat were also producing milk that contained residues. A small number of dairy farms have been cited by regulators over the years for being in violation of existing standards for antibiotic and other drug residues in animal carcasses at meat processing facilities.The FDA survey involved the confidential collection of milk samples from 953 dairy farms with a previous tissue residue violation, and another 959 randomly selected samples.The residue testing was conducted on raw milk from the farm, not on milk that had gone through the protocols in place further down the processing chain to keep antibiotics out of the milk supply. This was not an analysis of processed, retail-bound dairy products that reached consumers. The FDA conducts approximately 40,000 separate antibiotic residue tests of retail-ready dairy products annually, and has detected zero positives in the past four years.last_img read more

Hector Gutierrez’s worldly experience has helped establish Beach Volleyball

She is a dog, baseball, and pizza enthusiast. Previous articleNews Now 4/16/18Next articleHoroscope: April 16, 2018 Alexis Guerrero RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt Dean of Admission reflects on university’s growing recognition printHector Gutierrez is hoping to establish TCU’s newest NCAA sport on campus as a program that is successful on and off the court.In his second season, head coach Hector Gutierrez is relying on his previous coaching experience with the USA national team to help establish the five-year-old beach volleyball program.Gutierrez spent 10 months as head coach of the USA beach volleyball national team in 2014. With the USA team, he led the duo of Brittany Hochevar and Heather McGuire to a ninth-place showing at the Prague Open in the Czech Republic. He also led Hochevar and teammate Jennifer Fopma to a finish in ninth place at the Long Beach Grand Slam in California.“Just working with the professionals it makes me realize the different styles and the different mentalities,” Gutierrez said.Gutierrez said he relies a lot on the experience and feedback from players he’s coached on the USA national team to learn how to push the athletes at TCU.“I know American athletes are different than Europeans,” Gutierrez said. “The communication is a little bit different. I have learned a lot how to communicate a message. Sometimes that barrier is hard to pass it through and that’s something I learned the most with the USA national team.”After his experience with the USA beach volleyball national team, Gutierrez served as the assistant coach at Florida State and helped lead the beach volleyball program to the No. 1 overall seed in the first-ever NCAA Championship.  The Seminoles finished as runner-ups in the championship to USC.During his time at Florida State, the team won the CCSA Championship, produced two AVCA All-Americans, notched four CCSA All-Conference selections and the CCSA Pair of the Year.“Me and Brooke [Niles, FSU beach volleyball head coach] got in the same year together there,” Gutierrez said. “It was a great experience because we knew on the first day that it was one of the strongest teams in the country. Just the experience to compete in the finals in the NCAA Championship was great.”Gutierrez also has an abundance of international experience as both an indoor and beach volleyball coach.Before joining the USA beach volleyball team, he served as head coach on the Slovakian (2014) Beach Volleyball women’s national team and an assistant coach on the German Beach Volleyball national team from 2012 to 2013. He also worked with the Swiss Beach Volleyball national team for one year (2011-12).“Seeing other styles of other countries play and other coaches- other ways to approach the game,” Gutierrez said, “that’s helping me as a coach to come here and introduce it to my athletes.”His players at TCU appreciate the experience from the USA beach volleyball national team that he has brought to them.Hector GutierrezVenngage Infographics“Seeing how he trains with those pros,” first-year Jordan Westendorff said, “seeing how they interact and how much they trust him, it just makes us trust him even more as a coach.”Fifth-year Cassie House said that experience adds another level to his resume.“It adds another level of respect that we have for him because it reinforces how knowledgeable he is,” House said. “We respect his view on the game and take his critics and encouragements and apply them to our own games.”Gutierrez noticed that although athletes are attached to the success of college programs, athletes are also attached to the success of coaches.“A lot of athletes want to trust their coach and they want a coach with a lot of experience,” Gutierrez said. “I think that’s really helpful for me and the program.Sophomore Avery Arellano said Gutierrez’s national and international experience has helped him build connections around the worlds to help recruit athletes to play beach volleyball at TCU.“I think he has a good sense of who he needs to help bring in for our team to get better,” Arellano said.Gutierrez said he is hoping to establish a program where everybody that comes to TCU knows the team works hard and are serious about being successful.“Of course our main goal is to go to the NCAA finals,” Gutierrez said. “The program is growing like every single player that comes here. Nothing is going to be for granted, you’re going to have to work for it and use everything we have here at TCU to accomplish that goal.” Twitter World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Alexis Guerrero Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Baseball adjusts to losing numerous key players from previous seasons Facebook TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Alexis Guerrero Where to watch Super Bowl LIII in Fort Worth ReddIt Derrick Mokaleng has many layers to his success Twitter Alexis Guerrero read more
