Markets tank on Libya and sovereign worries

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ Markets tank on Libya and sovereign worries whatsapp INVESTORS deserted stock markets yesterday as a triple whammy of sovereign debt fears, poor US and Chinese economic data and fears over escalating levels of violence in the Middle East and Libya hit confidence.Traders described the day as “a catalyst of negative sentiment” that caused a market rout and left the FTSE at a five-week low, down 1.55 per cent at 5,845. US markets also slumped with the Dow Jones experiencing its worst day in seven months, closing down 1.87 per cent to 11,984.61. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index closed 1.89 per cent lower at 1,295.1.The rout in Europe started after Moody’s downgrade of Spain’s credit rating from Aa1 to Aa2 caused fears over the return of the sovereign debt crisis. The rating agency warned Spain had severely underestimated the cost of recapitalising its banks.Continuing violence across Libya also weighed on markets, with fighting between rebels and forces loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi intensifying across the country.Gaddafi’s second son Saif al-Islam warned that his father was preparing full-scale military action to crush the rebellion and would never surrender even if the West invaded. EU leaders however failed to reach agreement on how to deal with Gaddafi. France and Britain jointly called on the European Union to recognise the rebel council based in Benghazi. But US and Germany continued to block French and UK proposals for a no-fly zone. Oil prices fell back despite the violence as news that China posted a $7.3bn trade deficit in February, its first in more than a year, stoked fears that its economic growth may have peaked. Brent crude traded at about $115.

Would I buy 3 of the biggest dividend payers in the FTSE 100?

first_imgWould I buy 3 of the biggest dividend payers in the FTSE 100? With its ‘sin stock’ status aside, this high-yielding FTSE 100 dividend share has its forecast dividend payment covered by its cash flow, which means I’m less inclined to think it will be at risk of a cut.The tobacco industry has been shaken up in recent years. Big names sidestepped into vaping products to offset losses from declining cigarette volumes and Imperial Brands has its own next-generation products (NGP).But regulatory tightening remains a concern, although having established itself in the arena, it’s well placed to scale up when regulations are clearer.A large part of IMB’s portfolio contains cigarette, rolling paper and tobacco brands. Along with its NGP portfolio, it’s positioned to deliver sustained profitable growth. Considering its high dividend yield, I think this could be a bargain Buy.Mounting costsThe BT Group (LSE:BT-A) share price has taken a hammering in recent years. I looked at it last month and considered it a Buy due to BT’s cybersecurity knowledge. I still think this could be its secret weapon, but have lost confidence in its ability to rein-in costs. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The UK government recently allowed Huawei to supply parts of the UK’s new 5G networks. The process also banned high-risk kit in use, which BT estimates will cost £500m to replace with approved components.BT Group has a P/E of 7 and a dividend yield of 8.6%, but many analysts think this yield is unsustainable. Given the group’s significant debt and pension deficit, along with the unknown costs it’s likely to incur in the 5G rollout, I agree a rate cut is likely on the cards. I won’t be buying. So, is Evraz worth the risk? It’s had a bumpy ride over the past year and its share price is down 42% in the past six months. One reason being that its chairman and major shareholders sold millions of shares without explanation. In its fourth-quarter trading update, it told us that consolidated crude steel production climbed 6.1% year-on-year, but external iron ore product sales fell 42.5% during 2019. It simply looks too risky for me, but I can see the appeal for those that don’t mind a roll of the dice.Unholy bargainConsumer defensive tobacco giant Imperial Brands (LSE:IMB) has a forward dividend yield of 14.9%The Imperial brands share price is down 20% in the past year and being a tobacco stock, it’s not one for ethical investors. It has an £18bn market cap, P/E of 18 and EPS of £1.05. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Kirsteen Mackay | Sunday, 2nd February, 2020 | More on: BT-A EVR IMB Image source: Getty Images. For income investors, the dividend yield is often the deciding factor when choosing a stock, but it can be a deceptive beast.Very high dividend yields can be a warning beacon that the company is attempting to deflect attention from its problems. Whereas a very low dividend yield can cause potential investors to miss out on great opportunities if they write them off as a no-go.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 following companies offer some of the highest yields in the FTSE 100, but the question is, are they a good investment?Risk vs rewardGlobal steel and mining company Evraz (LSE:EVR) has a dividend yield of 14.3% and its financial metrics are enticing. It has a £5bn market cap, a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 3, earnings per share of £1.10 and that monster dividend.However, mining companies are notoriously risky investments.

Anglican women’s organizations not sufficiently valued, network says

first_img Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Anglican Communion News Service] The Steering Group of the International Anglican Women’s Network (IAWN) has said that in many parts of the Communion full value is not yet given to Anglican women’s organizations that contribute to God’s mission among marginalized women and girls.In a communiqué issued after their UK meeting, Steering Group members reflected on the place of women in the Anglican Communion and concluded that more needed to be done to ensure the work and voices of women be acknowledged and appreciated.“During our discussions it became clear that many of the challenges faced by women are held in common, whether in the developed or developing world,” the group wrote. “In particular, poverty in its many forms too frequently has a woman’s face.”“It also became clear that in many parts of the Communion, full value is not yet given to Anglican women’s organizations that contribute faithfully to God’s mission among marginalized women and girls in their areas.”The group reviewed how it might better support the women who serve the Women’s Network as Provincial Links around the Communion, particularly in taking forward the implementation of the Anglican Consultative Council resolutions concerning equal representation of men and women on decision-making bodies in Anglican Communion churches.One possible way of supporting Provinces to address many of the challenges they had identified during their meeting was by facilitating two regional gatherings in South Asia (in 2015) and Africa (in 2016) which would focus on women’s economic empowerment.The big challenge for IAWN’s Steering Group over the coming months is to find the resources and support to realize these meetings.Read the full statement below:IAWN Steering Group CommuniquéWe, the members of the International Anglican Women’s Network (IAWN) Steering Group, thank God for the opportunity we have had to meet and reflect together at the Anglican Communion Office in London from November 7 – 12, 2013. All members of the Steering Group were present, apart from our Co-ordinator Mrs Ann Skamp from the Anglican Church of Australia, whom we greatly missed.During our meeting, we heard news of the loss of life, homes and livelihoods caused by Typhoon Haiyan, and held the people of the Philippines in our prayers. We also heard about the fragile peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and pray that this will lead to renewed, urgent efforts to eliminate sexual violence which is a deeply traumatic and unacceptable weapon and legacy of conflict.We were delighted that a number of experts within the Communion gave us time. The Revd Rachel Carnegie, soon to be Co-Director for the Anglican Alliance, expressed her desire to explore fresh approaches to collaboration between the International Anglican Women’s Network and the Alliance. Mr Jan Butter, Director for Communications at the Anglican Communion Office, challenged us to expand our approaches to global networking and sharing news. Anthropologist the Revd Dr Elizabeth Koepping, a senior lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, gave an inspiring theological reflection and described her research into the contradiction between Scripture and practice with respect to domestic physical violence. This enhanced our own reflections on the implications of Anglican Consultative Council Resolution 15.07 on gender based and domestic violence.In order to learn about a particular area of mission and outreach in an urban context, we visited the Church Army’s Day Centre in the Marylebone area of London. Day Centre Team Leader, Ms Valentina Ines La Mela, explained the work and ethos of the Project which successfully empowers vulnerable homeless women to live independently.We reviewed how the Steering Group might better support the women who serve the Women’s Network as Provincial Links around the Communion, particularly in order to take forward the implementation of the ACC resolutions concerning equal representation of men and women on decision-making bodies in our churches, and Anglican responses to gender based and domestic violence.The Steering Group includes women from around the worldwide Communion. During our discussions it became clear that many of the challenges faced by women are held in common, whether in the developed or developing world. In particular, poverty in its many forms too frequently has a woman’s face. It also became clear that in many parts of the Communion, full value is not yet given to Anglican women’s organisations that contribute faithfully to God’s mission among marginalised women and girls in their areas.In order to deepen conversation and resolve concerning common challenges, we will explore the possibilities of two regional gatherings, one in South Asia in 2015, and one in Africa in 2016, with a focus on women’s economic empowerment and related issues.The Secretary General, Canon Kenneth Kearon, welcomed us warmly to the Anglican Communion Office. The Chair of the Anglican Consultative Council, Bishop James Tengatenga, encouraged the Steering Group. He reaffirmed the importance of the Networks as “where things are happening; they make Anglicans visible, representing the whole Body of Christ, everyone and in every place. They show the life of the churches throughout the Communion.”We wish to thank the Anglican Communion Office for their hospitality, and in particular the Revd Terrie Robinson, Networks Coordinator and Women’s Desk Officer, for her generous and loving support and encouragement.Elaine Cameron, Scottish Episcopal Church; Meenakshi Das, Church of North India; Margaret Dempster, Anglican Church of Canada; Claudette Kigeme, Anglican Church of Burundi; Elenor Lawrence, Anglican Church in the Province of the West Indies; Kim Robey, The Episcopal Church; Pumla Titus, Anglican Church of Southern Africa.

The site for the deck house is situated in the plains adjacent to the Tirumala hills in Tirupati. The hills, part of the Seshachalam range spreads from east of the site towards southwest. The site itself is located in a residential layout off the main road lined with sporadic development. The client wanted to combine the house with a social space and an office for his business needs. The 15000 sft plot also was to accommodate a multipurpose play-court, a ‘Zen’ garden and flowing water keeping in tune with the client’s lifestyle.Save this picture!© ANAND JAJUOwing to the harsh sun and heat of Tirupati, the house sits on a compact footprint allowing for landscape and garden to encompass the house. The logic of the house lies in the creation of two distinct blocks bridged by a large dining space and united by a hovering roof. The two blocks operate as distinct zones, one housing the bedrooms and bathrooms and the other holding the public areas, kitchen and servants space of the house. Subtle changes in the floor planes articulate variations in volumes and provides for difference between the various programmatic spaces. The spatial strategy of two distinct blocks with a landscape articulated in between space allows for seamless communication between the various programmatic spaces of the house. This strategy alludes to the traditional courtyard houses found in southern parts of India and provides for a cohesive connect crucial for a home.Save this picture!© ANAND JAJUAnother definitive level of operation that informs the visual and performative aspect of the house is the way the ‘perimeter’ of the container is dealt with. On the west, bedrooms and toilets are layered by a wooden louvers system that provides relief and contact with the exterior world. On the north and east towards the front, the large deck and its roof operates as a welcoming and unifying element for the house. The lookout on the north towards the hills adds to the drama and provides specificity to the building and its elements. The ominous presence of the hills is felt from this deck. This cantilevered space connects the family space and office lounge to the outside and acts as a hosting place for business meets of the client. A spiral staircase in the front of the house before the main door states the ambiguity and premise of the house. The entrance to the house itself is a ‘non place’, a pause mediating the inside and outside.Save this picture!© ANAND JAJUSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!SectionMaterial articulation reinforces the differential conditions of the various programmatic spaces. The lower levels are clad with limestone giving the appearance of a container rooted to its surroundings. In contrast, the concrete volume hovers over this clad container and articulates a condition where the two distinct blocks meets the outside world. Wood screen clad on the home theatre volume from the outside in the first floor expresses a volume perched between the two blocks. The concrete plane provides a datum and gives an opportunity for occupation and cover against the harsh sun and glare of the place. A system of rib beams at close intervals hold the cantilevered volume and provides for the necessary thermal protection on the overhead plane.Save this picture!© ANAND JAJUGardens and landscape elements are envisioned as extensions of living spaces. The water body, lawn, Zen garden and the play-court is placed in a striated manner distinct from one another from east to west. Only the water body flows from the west to east and has overlaps with different zones. A Buddha statue made by local arts school students sits serenely on a levitated platform. Rocks for the Zen garden was bought from scattered pieces found around the site. And like the rock, the garden and rest of the house with its materials and apertures are thought of as artifacts where nature and time will mark their story upon.Save this picture!© ANAND JAJUProject gallerySee allShow less291 Photographs’ Store / LABOTORYSelected ProjectsChenfeng Group Fashion Hub Factory Renovation / Joseph DejardinSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeArchitecture ParadigmOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTirupatiIndiaPublished on August 26, 2019Cite: “The Deck House / Architecture Paradigm” 25 Aug 2019.

Farmer Optimism Drops While Farm Stress Can’t be Ignored

first_img Previous articleDisaster Aid Comes Up Short in the SenateNext articlePerdue at Purdue: Shutting Down the Southern Border Andy Eubank SHARE Farmer Optimism Drops While Farm Stress Can’t be Ignored Home Indiana Agriculture News Farmer Optimism Drops While Farm Stress Can’t be Ignored March-Ag-Barometer-dropsFarm financial stress may be playing a role in the drop in the newest Purdue University and CME Group Ag Economy Barometer. The March report just released went three points lower, based on sentiment of the 400 U.S. agricultural producers who were surveyed. Twenty percent of those surveyed said they expect their farm’s performance to be “worse than” in 2018, and fifty-two percent are less optimistic about their farm’s financial future compared to a year earlier.Jim Mintert from the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture, and the principal investigator for the barometer, explains how they identified the stress factor.“To learn more about the level of financial stress that exists in the U.S. ag sector, we asked farmers whether or not they expected the size of their operating loan in 2019 to be about the same, larger than or smaller than what it was in 2018, and twenty-two percent of them said they expected to have a larger operating loan in 2019.”Mintert said they then asked those who expected to have a larger operating loan what the reason was.“Twenty-one percent of them said it was because they were carrying over unpaid operating debt from prior years,” he said. “We asked these same two questions in January and the responses were quite similar. The result is an implication that about 5 to perhaps 7 percent of U.S. farms are suffering from some financial stress, using that unpaid operating debt being carried over into the current years as a measure of stress.”There was optimism about the future of agriculture exports. Only 8 percent of producers in the March survey said they expect agriculture exports to decrease in the next 5 years while 68 percent expect exports to increase, which was the most optimistic perspective on agricultural exports provided by farmers since the Purdue researchers began posing questions on exports in May 2017. With respect to the trade dispute with China, 77 percent of producers were confident that it will be resolved in a way that benefits U.S. agriculture; however, less than half expect the trade situation with China to be resolved before July 1.The barometer’s Index of Future Expectations dropped 6 points to 139 and the Index of Current Conditions remained relatively unchanged at 120.Read the full March Ag Economy Barometer report at https://purdue.edu/agbarometer. The report includes insights into producers’ attitudes toward farmland values and making large farm investments. The site also offers additional resources, such as past reports, charts and survey methodology, and a form to sign up for monthly barometer email updates and webinars. Each month Dr. Mintert also provides an in-depth analysis of the barometer. See it at https://purdue.ag/barometervideo.

Record breaking heat and fire danger in the West, mid-Atlantic flood risk in East

first_imgABC NewsBY: BRITTANY BORER, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Several daily high temperature records were broken from Washington State to Texas on Saturday like in Shreveport, Louisiana, which hit its first 100-degree day of the year.Today, we expect more of the same across the western third of the country and parts of Texas with temperatures in the triple digits.In total, 54 million Americans are forecast to experience 100-degree heat this week and more than 100 daily high temperature records could be set through Wednesday.Elsewhere, a Red Flag warning is in effect today across the West as abundant lightning is expected along with gusty winds as isolated thunderstorms pop up this afternoon and evening.These conditions increase the likelihood of new fires starting and also spreading existing fires as wind gusts could reach 55 mph within thunderstorm outflow boundaries.A flash flood watch is in effect for parts of the mid-Atlantic through this morning as the heaviest rain pushes through northern Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.The heaviest rain will continue to work its way to the coast this morning and by the afternoon things will start to wind down inland. By around 7:00 p.m. we will see drier conditions for most folks along the coastal mid-Atlantic.New rainfall amounts today could be between 2 and 3 inches on already saturated ground. Flash Flooding is a threat from eastern Virginia through Maryland where the heaviest rain is expected to fall.Tropical Storm Kyle was the earliest 11th Atlantic named storm on record.
