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.

But investing during the coronavirus pandemic feels like a minefield. There’s so much uncertainty around. And with uncertainty, comes risk. To try and make investing during these uncertain times a bit easier, I’ve come up with a few principles that should improve our returns.Investing in quality during the pandemicThese are testing times for virtually every company. Most companies will suffer to some degree. But the strongest may survive and prosper. These are companies that have strong brands, pricing power and high profit margins. They’re the household names that we stock in our fridges and the supermarkets that we shop in. They’re the things that we can’t do without, even in a pandemic. 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…As well as having competitive advantages, the best companies also have strong balance sheets. They have huge cash balances that they’ve saved for a rainy day. This cash can be used to support the business while it’s going through choppy waters. Companies that don’t have adequate cash will be forced to either borrow or raise equity. Either way, this could be costly for shareholders.As well as having stacks of cash, the strongest companies also have little debt. When crises hit, highly indebted companies will find they can no longer cover their interest payments. Companies may be forced to issue more debt just to cover their payments, with the debt potentially spiralling out of control. Avoid stricken sectorsSuccessful investing during the pandemic is predicated on us being able to filter out the riskiest investments. Some sectors have been hit harder by coronavirus and the subsequent lockdown. I’m talking about the travel and hospitality sectors in particular. They’ve had months of revenues wiped out, in many cases leading to giant losses. This looks set to continue at least until next spring. For the companies that operate in these sectors, things could get a whole lot worse before they get better.While it may appear that dramatic share price falls have created buying opportunities, I would leave these for only the most adventurous investors. The pandemic may have created permanent changes in consumer behaviour. Even if it hasn’t, some companies in troubled sectors have taken on so much debt just to survive that it’s going to be eating into profits for years to come. I believe investing in these sectors is inherently more risky and more likely to lead to investment losses. That’s why I’d avoid them during the pandemic and instead look to areas that have been relatively unaffected.Look for valueAnother way to reduce the risk is to focus on undervalued shares that appear cheap. The value of the shares provides a buffer of protection against further price falls. If the underlying company is of sufficient quality, there’s only so far its share price is likely to fall before its value becomes attractive and its price recovers. Simply put, buying quality shares when they’re improves the likelihood of achieving superior returns in the long run. Sooner or later, such share prices catch up with reality and reflect a company’s true value.This is a simple set of rules. But it’s one that could help me to successfully invest during the coronavirus pandemic. I just need to make sure I stick to them.

Priest in same-sex marriage loses legal challenge to bishop’s ‘discriminatory’…

Rector Belleville, IL Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Bath, NC March 25, 2018 at 10:43 pm Robert Walker notes that CofE “Churches are nearly empty on Sundays.” That’s not due to the church’s stance on same-sex marriage. The growing churches in the UK are the ones that oppose same-sex marriage and other elements of the new sexual morality. If anything, the CofE’s growing liberalization, such as that found in TEC, is driving people from the pews rather than to them.Bob Scruggs poses the question “What intangible difference is there between the services of a same-sex married priest and an opposite-sex married priest?” While there may or may not be differences in services rendered, it bears noting that a same-sex married priest is not qualified for the office.

And so the Church of England, in disallowing a priest who is in a same-sex marriage, simply removed an individual from giving priestly services to those who request it. It administratively has wasted a resource that took money, time, and effort to develop. What intangible difference is there between the services of a same-sex married priest and an opposite-sex married priest. Does the former priest bring an invisible abomination with him when performing priestly services? If his same-sex status is noncompliant with the Scriptures, then are priests in opposite-sex marriages simply without sin? It seems the gender issue is the only sin that elicits drastic action by the highest leadership of the Church of England. The Bible leads us to believe that we “all sin and fall short ….”, so presumably ‘straight’ priests sin also, but apparently their sins are ignored. Prohibiting the priest in a same-sex marriage is hypocrisy at its most powerful destructive front-row seat. Denominations have neither record-breaking attendance nor new-member numbers, so it would behoove churches to keep what they have and not run off qualified clergy. Sadly, the priest in a same-sex marriage is part of a Church Suicide Process which is authored by the princes of the Church who explain the effect in elegant and beautifully literate language, empowered by having, along with His Holiness, The Bishop of Rome, their own license of ‘ex cathedra.’ TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Youth Minister Lorton, VA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET center_img Featured Events Rector Smithfield, NC Priest in same-sex marriage loses legal challenge to bishop’s ‘discriminatory’ response Comments are closed.

Pork Producers Getting Loud on Trade Deal

first_img By Gary Truitt – Jun 8, 2014 Facebook Twitter Pork Producers Getting Loud on Trade Deal Previous articleNPB Elects New Board Members at World Pork ExpoNext articleOil Futures End Higher Friday, but Lower for the Week Gary Truitt SHARE Pork Producers Getting Loud on Trade Deal SHARE Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Pork Producers Getting Loud on Trade Deal US pork producers are making plenty of noise about Japan’s refusal to open its market to more US pork. The U.S. is currently negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement with 13 Asian nations which would eliminate trade barriers and foster free trade.  But Japan is refusing to lower their trade barriers on U.S. ag products, especially pork. , with the NPPC, says this is a major issue for the US pork industry, “Japan’s recalcitrance on agriculture has forced pork producers and other farm groups to get very loud and very public.” He added, if Japan is allowed to keep tariffs on U.S. farm imports, it will cost American agriculture billions of dollars in lost sales.The other nations involved in the TPP agreement have agreed to lower trade barriers and tariffs on agricultural products.  He said U.S. pork producers alone would lose millions of dollars in export sales if the U.S. would agree to allow Japan to keep its tariffs in place, “If the U.S. would agree to such a bad deal, it would result in the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars in lost pork sales alone.”Giordano added what is worse is that, if Japan is allowed to get away with keeping their tariffs on ag products, it would set a precedent for all other trade agreements, “If Japan gets this special treatment that the U.S. has never extended to any other trade partner, it will become the new standard in trade agreements.” He said this precedent could impact agricultural trade for the next 25 years. Pork producers, along with other ag groups, are sending a strong message to Congress that, unless Japan gives up it protectionism, U.S. farmers will not support the TPP trade agreement. The National Pork Producers Council has joined the International Dairy Foods Association, the National Association of Wheat Growers, the USA Rice Federation, and the U.S. Wheat Association in calling on the Obama administration to conclude the (TPP) negotiations without Japan unless that nation agrees to provide significant market access for the U.S. According to reports from the recent TPP trade ministerial meeting in Singapore, Japanese Minister of the Economy Akira Amari said Japan will not abolish tariffs in the agricultural sectors it considers sacred, including dairy, sugar, rice, beef, pork, wheat, and barley. The TPP involves the U.S., Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam, which account for nearly 40 percent of global GDP.last_img read more

Another arrest in growing crackdown on 64Tianwang website reporters

first_img March 12, 2021 Find out more June 26, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Another arrest in growing crackdown on 64Tianwang website reporters China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Follow the news on China China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Reporters Without Borders condemns this week’s arbitrary arrest of Yang Dongying, the latest victim of the Chinese government’s systematic persecution of citizen-journalists working for 64Tianwang (64Skynet), a news website run by the cyber-dissident Huang Qi. to go further April 27, 2021 Find out more Arrested in the eastern province of Zhejiang on 24 June, Yang Dongying has been charged with “picking a quarrel and making trouble” because she criticized the methods used by the Zhejiang police to extract a confession from her 13-year-old son, who has since been hospitalized.Earlier this month, the police interrogated her about her links with other 64Tianwang journalists including Wang Jing and Zhang Jixin, who are currently detained, and with Huang Qi.“The crackdown on journalists continues in China even as Chinese officials are being received with great pomp in Washington by their US business partners and Premier Li Keqiang prepares to attend a China-EU summit in Brussels,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“The targeted arrests of 64Tianwang reporters testifies to the sensitivity of the stories covered by this news website. We demand the release of these journalists, who are being held arbitrarily, and we urge the authorities to implement China’s constitution, which guarantees the right of its citizens to freedom of information.”Yang is the latest in a long list of 64Tianwang journalists and human rights activities to be detained. They include citizen-journalist Wang Jing, who was arrested in the northeastern province of Jilin in January on a charge of disturbing public order. Her mother says she has become critically ill in detention.At the same time, her daughter has begun to develop symptoms of autism since her arrest. Her lawyer has submitted several requests for her release on bail that have been rejected by the prosecutor.Wu Youming, a journalist arrested on 26 January, pleaded not guilty to charges of extortion and blackmail when he was tried behind closed doors on 4 June in Wuxue, in the east-central province of Hubei. Requesting his immediate release, his lawyer, Li Jinglin urged the court to respect his rights and dignity.Lian Huanli, another 64Tianwang volunteer reporter, was arrested in late March on a charge of being a prostitute’s client and was sentenced to a year in prison. Ever since the 2013 earthquake in Sichuan province, he had distinguished himself by his defence of the rights of earthquake victims in Lushan district.Zhang Jixin, a 64Tianwang activist and reporter in Jilin province, has been held since 26 April on charges of “demonstrating with the aim of disturbing public order” and “provocation.” The police confiscated her computer, mobile phone and more than 400 pages of reporting at the time of her arrest.Regarded by the government as subversive, above all because of its coverage of human rights violations, 64Tianwang was the target of a series of cyber-attacks last September. Founder Huang Qi has served two jail terms, one for posting articles about the Tiananmen Square massacre and one on a charge “possessing state secrets” in connection with his coverage of the aftermath of the 2008 earthquake in Sichuan.Ranked 176th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, China is the world’s biggest prison for news providers. Those detained include Gao Yu, a journalist who was awarded UNESCO’s Guillermo Cano Prize in 1997. She was sentenced to seven years in prison in April.
