Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. I’d invest £20k in a Stocks and Shares ISA to beat buy-to-let, cash and gold! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Buy-to-let properties, cash and gold all have their attractions this year. Buy-to-let allows you to invest in the rising UK property market. Cash offers security against economic volatility. Gold is a renowned safe haven and has posted steady growth in recent years.However, if I had £20k to invest, or any other sum, I’d rather put it in top stocks through a Stocks and Shares ISA. This is simpler, more tax efficient and, ultimately, should be more rewarding. That makes it a far better way to save for your future.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…Tough prospectsBuy-to-let, cash and gold all have serious pitfalls. Buy-to-let is expensive and effortful, with hefty upfront costs, and returns are heavily taxed. From April, the maximum tax relief you can claim on your mortgage interest falls to 20%, even if you pay tax at 40% or 45%.The average cash savings account pays around 0.5%, and there’s little hope of that increasing for years. You can get around 1.4% on instant access, but leading rates don’t last long, and you’ll have to keep shopping around every year to maintain a decent return.The gold price could fall if the world gets the coronavirus under control and global growth takes off. Gold is more volatile than you think and, after recent climbs, could be vulnerable.Investment opportunityIf you want to build a £1m pension for your retirement, an easier way would be to invest in a range of companies using your annual £20,000 Stocks and Shares ISA allowance. You have until 5 April to use this year’s allowance.If you’d invested £20,000 in the FTSE 250 index of medium-sized UK companies five years ago, you’d have £29,780 today. That’s a total return of 48.9%, with dividends reinvested. And that’s impressive, given that, for most of this time, Brexit uncertainty has been hanging over the UK stock market, as well as concerns over the US-China trade war… and now concerns over coronavirus.Global growthYou get income as well as growth from the stock market. The FTSE All-Share currently offers a yield of 4.24% a year, almost three times the interest you get on cash, whereas gold doesn’t pay interest at all. You may get a yield of 5-6% on a buy-to-let, but that’s taxable, while the returns in a Stocks and Shares ISA are free of all tax, for life.Stock markets are volatile in the short run, but in the longer run, they beat almost every other investment.Many people fail to realise that top UK companies give you exposure to the international economy as well, especially those in the FTSE 100, which generate three quarters of their earnings overseas. So if global growth picks up, you should benefit from that too.Better still, you can buy and sell in seconds and at minimal cost, and never pay tax on your returns inside that ISA. That’s why I favour the stock market over property, cash and gold, this year and beyond. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Sometimes shares fall because the company has deep problems. Sometimes shares fall because markets have underestimated the upside. ITV seems to fall into both camps. There is a potential bargain here, and I would say watch ITV (LSE:ITV), I mean literally watch ITV, to decide.The latest results from ITV weren’t bad. Revenue was up 3%. Adjusted EBITDA fell £729m, but was better than expected.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…The big cloud hanging over ITV relates to advertising revenue, and of course the coronavirus is a major issue because this time of year normally sees a glut of advertising for holidays. These latest results applied to the year ending 31 December, too soon for any Coronavirus effect. Even so, advertising revenues fell, and are likely to fall even further.The opportunity The opportunity for ITV is two-fold: production studios and BritBox. Globally, there is a thirst for quality TV content. Companies like Netflix have risen to this challenge. Netflix’s share price has also risen, indicating its success. British content is famous for its quality, and you don’t need the investigating powers of Poirot to see the opportunity.That is where hope for ITV’s share price lies. Personally, I think the BBC has really raised its game in recent years with its drama. ITV has lagged behind, but in an era when quality content is at a premium, has a chance to capitalise on the very thing British TV is famous for.ITV, in partnership with BBC, has a massive opportunity with BritBox. In the UK, the new service often gets a slating across social media, but then that Brits for you — they love to slate their own.I think ITV can either sell its content worldwide via the likes of Netflix, or it can take a leaf out Disney’s book, and make its content exclusive to its own subscription service, BritBox.Either way, if the content is good and has international appeal — like Poirot — then it can flourish. You can form your own opinion on its success just by watching TV.Shares and the Midsummer effect ITV shares are now so cheap, that the dividend yield is around 7.5%. Often such high dividends point to a company with little growth potential. With ITV, this does not have to be the case.There is also a coronavirus element to this that could benefit ITV. As the virus spreads, cinema viewings are likely to fall, as illustrated by the delayed launch of the latest Bond movie.Inspector Barnaby might not be quite like James Bond, but the villages of Midsummer seem to be more dangerous than Spectra. Just as ITV is likely to suffer a knock from a coronavirus-related hit on some advertising revenues, I suspect that it will also see a coronavirus-related increase in viewings, not just because of falling cinema audiences, but because all those kids not going to school, and all those would-be commuters, home working — they might just tune in to a bit more telly.

Archbishop of Hong Kong and ACC Chair Paul Kwong, right, also participated in the news conference. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Hong Kong] The members of the Anglican Consultative Council, meeting here April 28-May 5, cannot formally discuss Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s decision to exclude the same-sex spouses of bishops invited to the 2020 Lambeth Conference.Welby told a news conference on April 27, in response to a question from Episcopal News Service, that the ACC is the only one of the Anglican Communion’s Instruments of Communion that is governed by English law. It is incorporated as “an English company with a charitable aim.” Via the ACC constitution, the trustees “very clearly specify what it can and cannot do,” he said.“Doctrine is not one of the issues that it does,” Welby said of the council.The ACC’s “object,” according to its constitution, is to “advance the Christian religion and in particular to promote the unity and purposes of the Churches of the Anglican Communion, in mission, evangelism, ecumenical relations, communication, administration and finance.” The constitution lists 30 specific powers of the ACC after making the general statement that “the council has the power to do anything which is calculated to further its Object(s) or is conducive or incidental to doing so.”Full ENS coverage of the 17th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council is available here.Welby said, “There will be an opportunity outside the conference for members of the conference to ask me questions” about any subject they would like, and he said, he has no doubt that Lambeth will come up. “And, that will be in a private session so people can express themselves freely and clearly, and express their disagreement, which is perfectly proper.”He noted that the decision about whom to invite to the conference has been the sole prerogative of the archbishop of Canterbury since the first conference in 1867.Formal discussion of the Lambeth Conference is currently on the agenda for the late morning of May 4 as one of three items in the 19th of the meeting’s 21 business sessions. Also on that session’s agenda are a discussion of ACC finance and organizational matters (carried over from the previous session) and the first of two times when the members will consider resolutions. The session is scheduled to last 75 minutes. The last meeting of the ACC saw passage of 45 resolutions, all of them on one up-or-down consent calendar vote.Both The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council and House of Bishops, as well as a number of dioceses, have objected to the decision announced Feb. 15 in an Anglican Communion News Service blog by Anglican Communion Secretary General Josiah Idowu-Fearon.Idowu-Fearon wrote that Welby had invited “every active bishop” to the periodic gathering of the Anglican Communion’s bishops set for July 23-Aug. 2, 2020. That decision represents a change from the previous Lambeth Conference. In 2008, then-Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams refused to invite Bishop Gene Robinson, who in 2003 became the first openly gay and partnered bishop in the Anglican Communion.However, Idowu-Fearon said in his blog post that “it would be inappropriate for same-sex spouses to be invited to the conference.” He said the Anglican Communion defines marriage as “the lifelong union of a man and a woman,” as codified in Resolution 1.10 of the 1998 Lambeth Conference.Welby’s decision promoted push-back in Britain as well, including at the University of Kent in Canterbury, where most of the conference will take place, and among some members of the Houses of Parliament.“It is worth noting that the controversy is not only one way,” Welby said, adding that he has received “a significant number of letters” objecting to his decision to invite bishops who are in same-sex marriages when none were invited in 2008. “That’s a point that is sometimes forgotten,” he said.Diocese of New York Bishop Assistant Mary Glasspool currently is The Episcopal Church’s only actively serving bishop who has a same-sex spouse, Becki Sander. The Rev. Thomas Brown is due to be ordained and consecrated on June 22 as the next bishop of the Diocese of Maine. He is married to the Rev. Thomas Mousin.The only other active bishop in the Anglican Communion to whom Welby’s decision is known to apply is Diocese of Toronto Bishop Suffragan Kevin Robertson. He married Mohan Sharma, his partner of nearly 10 years, on Dec. 28, 2018.When K.C. Wong of the Hong Kong Catholic Newspaper asked Welby if the issue of same-sex relationships is as pressing an issue now as it was when Robinson became a bishop is 2003, Welby replied “it depends on who you ask.” It is a pressing issue in North America and parts of Australia, he said.“To be honest, in very large parts of the communion, it’s not an issue that registers very high,” Welby said. In those areas, people are faced with “issues of life or death,” he said, such as rising water levels in the South Pacific, expanding deserts in Africa, warfare and rape as a weapon of war in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Christian persecution.“It’s a very pressing issue for the unity of the communion or, to be absolutely specific because we will not agree on that point, it is a very pressing issue for how we disagree well and whether we’re capable of disagreeing well,” he said.Anglican Communion Secretary General Josiah Idowu-Fearon said April 27 that many churches outside the Anglican Communion are wrestling with what he called “this problem” of same-sex relationships. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceWhen Idowu-Fearon replied that many churches outside the Anglican Communion are wrestling with what he called “this problem” of same-sex relationships, Welby cautioned against that characterization.“It’s not an issue; it’s not a problem. It’s about people. When we’re dealing with people, we treat them as people made in the image of God and with the dignity of being in the image of God,” he said. “The first rule is these are people, and I think the most painful part for me of the decisions that have to be made is that I know at every moment that I write a letter or make a decision, that I’m making a decision about people and that there is no decision that will result in nobody getting hurt.”His decision “hurt a lot of people,” Welby admitted, “but I would have hurt a huge number of people elsewhere in the communion” if he had decided differently.“There wasn’t a nice solution,” which he rejected in favor of “the nasty solution,” he said. “It’s not as simple as that.”Welby pointed out that on May 1 the ACC will suspend its work and members will be offered the option of attending a 90-minute “consultation” on Living in Love and Faith, the Church of England’s new effort to think theologically about diverse opinions on human identity and sexuality.“It will, I hope, lead to significantly more careful listening to each other around the world,” he said.Welby said the attendance-optional session requires the suspension of the council’s work because “it doesn’t fall within what the ACC can do.”Read more about itACC background is here.Ongoing ENS coverage of the ACC is here.The Anglican Communion News Service’s coverage is here.Tweeting is happening with #ACC17HK.– The Rev.

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Hoosier Wins AGCO 2012 Operator of the Year Previous articleAgriculture Secretary Vilsack Comments on Soaring U.S. ExportsNext articleNew Faces in General Assembly Pose No Threat to Agriculture Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Nov 29, 2012 SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter A Hoosier grabbed the spotlight this week at the Agricultural Retailers Association Conference and Expo in San Diego. Glen Slabaugh, who works for Clunette Elevator Company in Leesburg, was recently named to the top 4 in AGCO Application Equipment’s annual program honoring the best professional applicators in the country. Wednesday at the conference Slabaugh received the top designation of 2012 Operator of the Year.Slabaugh wins a Harley Davidson motorcycle and speaking with Hoosier Ag Today Thursday morning said all the finalists deserved his honor.“There’s four of us and I think there should have been four Harley’s down there instead of one! They’re all very worthy, very capable of doing the same thing I do. I wish you could have heard everybody’s story. I don’t know how they picked the winner and I’m glad I wasn’t the one who picked them.”Slabaugh was recognized for outstanding commitment to his profession and a high level of performance and service to his community. Over a 37-year career he has witnessed technology changes that have been dramatic.“Oh yes, the technology especially in the GPS end,” he said. “The first thing was the light bar that came along and now of course we’re up to auto steer, auto boom and auto shut off, so the technology in that area has really, really jumped. Who knows what it’s going to be like in the future.”Mark Sharitz, director of marketing for AGCO Application Equipment, praised all of the finalists but told HAT there was no doubt Indiana’s Slabaugh was the right choice.“Glen stood out and it wasn’t just because he’s been doing this for 37 years, it’s the other things. He’s logged in over a million acres in those 37 years and if you know that part of Indiana (Kosciusko County) there are a lot of 30, 40, and 60 acre tracts up there. There is a lot of time setting up the machine properly for the right crop and the customers’ expectations. Beyond that Glen is very, very passionate about the customer service piece of it, and then from a community standpoint he’s been deacon of his church for the last ten years. He’s been very active there and teaches Sunday school. He has a passion to care of some of the elderly folks at the retirement villages in that part of the state that don’t get the kind of visitors that they’d like to have.”Slabaugh was nominated by Jared Haughee, Clunette Elevator Company certified crop adviser, who cited his positive attitude, excellent customer relationships and knowledge base second to none.  Well- respected in his community, Slabaugh has also been head deacon of his church for nearly 10 years, served as a Sunday school teacher and has volunteered his time visiting patients in nursing homes to help brighten their day. “Glen is known all throughout our community and customer base, and everyone has the same opinion that he is an honest, caring and hard-working servant,” Haughee said.The other three finalists were Paul “Rocky” Lang of CHS, Inc., in Royal City, Wash.; Carl Petersen of Crop Production Services in Pipestone, Minn.; and Paul Folden, of Garrison Farmers Union Elevator in Garrison, N.D.Now in its seventh year, Operator of the Year is open to U.S. and Canadian custom applicators who are nominated by their agricultural retailers. A panel of judges evaluates each nominee on commitment to the profession, performance in the field and community involvement. All nominees receive a certificate from AGCO recognizing their nomination for this prestigious award.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/11/Glen-Slabaugh-wins-AGCO-award.mp3|titles=Glen Slabaugh wins AGCO award] Facebook Twitter Hoosier Wins AGCO 2012 Operator of the Yearlast_img read more

first_img News June 2, 2021 Find out more PakistanAsia – Pacific January 28, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders is extremely concerned about the anonymous threats that Noorul Wahab, a journalist who covers the districts of Charsadda and Mardan in the northern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for the Daily Express newspaper, has been getting for the past two days.“We urge those responsible for these threats to stop harassing this journalist, who has committed no crime and has just done his job,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also urge the authorities in Charsadda and Mardan to provide Wahab with protection without delay, to ensure that the threats are not carried out.“We can take it for granted that the police are now aware of these threats and, in view of Pakistan’s disastrous history in combatting violence against journalists, they can no longer justify any failure to take action in this case.”Wahab began receiving the threats from an Afghan phone number on 12 January, the day after his newspaper published a report by him on a sexual attack on a female student. It was reprinted in the Daily Pakistan and Khabrain, and was picked up by the ARY News TV station.“You will be shot dead after three days,” the anonymous phone callers said.Wahab thinks that the national coverage put pressure on the student’s attackers, forcing them to contact her family in an attempt to negotiate an out-of-court settlementHe immediately reported the threats to the Charsadda and Mardan authorities. He has received the support of the Peshawar Press Club and the Union of Khyber Journalists, which have voiced their unanimous condemnation.Ranked 159th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Pakistan is one of the world’s deadliest countries for media personnel.

Parents and incoming students can see classrooms, meet teachers, and get a preview of the typical kindergarten day.“We want to make the first experience with PUSD schools welcoming and positive for new students as well as to give parents an opportunity to connect early with teachers and school staff,” said Superintendent Jon R. Gundry, who will participate at an elementary school that day to help welcome new families. “The teachers and staff of PUSD look forward to partnering with parents and families to help all students achieve high levels of academic excellence.”Parents can also learn about the kindergarten curriculum, skills they can practice at home with their children before school starts, and connect with other parents. Schools can share meaningful information and begin sustained communication with families.“The Roundup is the first time that many families will meet and begin to develop a community focused on the education of their children,” said Kathy Onoye, Ed.D., the district’s Executive Director of Elementary Instruction. “It’s the beginning of lifelong friendships for children and their parents.”To be eligible for kindergarten in PUSD, children must turn five years old by November 1, 2012. For the first time, PUSD will be offering transitional kindergarten for children turning five between October 2, 2012 and December 1, 2012.

Families can find their local elementary school at www.pusd.us or by calling (626) 396-3600, ext. 88340. The following documents are required for registration:• The child’s birth certificate or certified copy• The most recent immunization & vaccination record• Two proofs of residency in the form of a recent gas, electric or water bill in the parent/guardian’s nameAlthough kindergarten registration continues through August, it is important for children to register early so that schools can plan for the upcoming school year. All families attending the Kindergarten Roundup on March 27 will receive a readiness packet with fun activities for students to prepare for school. Spanish language translation will also be available at many of the school sites. Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

The Bench of Justice J. J. Munir, however, gave the mother the liberty to seek daughter’s custody in the event she is acquitted by judgment based on doubt or otherwise. The matter before the Court A petition for writ of habeas corpus was instituted by the Petitioner/Mother (Gyanmati Kushwaha) asking that her minor daughter be ordered to be produced before the Court and the daughter be entrusted into her (Petitioner-mother’s) care and custody. Facts in brief Petitioner/Mother Gyanmati Kushwaha is currently facing trial as a co-accused in the case relating to her husband’s murder. As alleged by the Petitioner, she had been implicated in her husband’s murder at the instance of Kamal Kushwaha (husband’s maternal uncle). She was remanded to judicial custody on 16th May 2018, and at that time, Kamal snatched away Drisha from her. It is said that at that time, Drisha had not yet been weaned away, but still, Gyanmati was deprived of her daughter’s care and custody, while in jail. She applied for bail and was released from prison on 10th September 2018. After her release on bail, she asked Kamal Kushwaha (husband’s maternal uncle) several times that she may be handed back her daughter’s custody, but he refused to do so. Arguments put forth Petitioner submitted before the Court that she is Drisha’s mother, and the only surviving natural guardian, after her husband’s death. The petitioner contended before the Court that under the provisions of Section 6(a) of The Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act, 19562, the mother has the right to the custody of a minor child until the age of five years ordinarily, which is quite apart of her right to the minor’s natural guardianship. It was also submitted that presently Suresh Kushwaha (Drisha’s grandfather) is having the custody of the minor daughter and that it is absolutely not in the minor’s welfare to entrust her custody to the grandfather, while the mother is around. On the other hand, the opposite parties submitted that she would not be entitled to Drisha’s custody, because she is an accused in the case relating to her husband’s murder, along with co-accused, who has been dubbed as her paramour, and other associates. It was argued that she is facing trial for her husband’s murder, and if convicted, the child’s life might be ruined. Court’s observations At the outset, the Court observed that the law would not certainly countenance custody of a minor to be handed over to a parent who is an undertrial, in connection with the other’s murder, and that too, on a charge of conspiracy with a paramour. On the other hand, the Court noted, “It is the mother’s right to her child’s care and custody, and the child’s right, in turn, to her mother’s love and affection, which the law takes care of to the extent that if the mother were in jail in an unrelated matter, young children up to the age of five or six years, depending on different jail rules in the various states, are allowed to stay in prison with the incarcerated mother.” Significantly, the Court observed that the statutes may speak about the right of one parent or the other to custody, or the right of guardianship, but, in substance, it is not at all about the right of a guardian to the minor’s custody, or guardianship; it is all about the minor’s welfare. Coming to the facts of the Case, the Court opined that if the mother were to be convicted, the minor’s welfare would be thrown into disarray. “It would be irreversibly unsettling and debilitating in her formative years. It may even expose her to insurmountable trauma, if she witnesses her mother, whom she is bonded with, convicted in the case of her father’s murder”, remarked the Court. The Court further noted that the possibility that the mother might truly be a conspirator in her husband’s murder, predicates a personality that would not be beneficial for the minor in grooming her about her moral values – a very important aspect of a child’s welfare. On the other hand, the Court remarked, “If the mother is innocent and she is acquitted, the loss, the minor would suffer on account of deprivation of her mother’s care and custody, cannot be re-compensated, but nevertheless, it is a reverse that must be accepted for the minor’s surer welfare, in preference to a contingent better, fraught with risk.” With this, giving her the liberty to approach the appropriate court in the event, she is acquitted of the charges of murdering her husband, the Court dismissed the Plea.
