Are these the best UK shares for 2020? Enter Your Email Address Nick Train fronts respected, outperforming investment management business Lindsell Train, and the company runs a range of funds. One of the guiding principles for Train and Michael Lindsell, when they set up the firm, was to take a long view on investment performance and business development.The idea was to hold investments through thick and thin to realise the full potential over many years. And a glance at the firm’s track record reveals the strategy is working. For example, the share price of Lindsell Train Investment Trust is around 700% higher now than 10 years ago. On top of that, shareholders have received decent dividends.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…I reckon quality marks the best UK shares for 2020Train is also on record explaining he thinks investors are often too pessimistic about the stock market. Indeed, weakness like the recent crash provides Lindsell Train with opportunities to invest. Train reckons the company can buy shares in businesses that will rise when the stock market recovers. And, over time, “stock markets will do well.”But to commit to a long holding period through all the ups and downs, I reckon we need to be sure about the quality of the underlying enterprise. And it’s clear from Lindsell Train’s website the firm puts a lot of effort into trying to identify and model quality. So I think the quality underpinning Lindsell Train’s stock picks is a compelling reason why they could be some of the best UK shares for 2020.Some of the top holdings in Lindsell Train’s funds will be familiar to quality-seeking investors. For example, in the fast-moving consumer goods space, the portfolio includes premium alcoholic drinks supplier Diageo. The share price has risen around 140% over the past 10 years,  driven by solid operational progress in the business. On top of that, shareholders have received a rising stream of dividends.And it’s no surprise to see a holding in consumer essentials supplier Unilever. It’s arguably the king of fast-moving consumer goods on the London market. And there’s an impressive multi-year record of gains in cash flow and the shareholder dividend. The brands are strong, and operational progress has driven a 130% share price gain over the past 10 years.Concentrated portfoliosOne of the ‘secrets’ of Lindsell Train’s success is the portfolio is concentrated. Typically, the managed funds contain between 20 and 30 holdings, which is well short of the hundreds we often see in other managed funds. But I reckon that number of shares represents wide diversification for an individual investor. So you can replicate the Lindsell Train strategy.In percentage terms, holdings in the firm’s funds are typically weighted in mid-to-high single digits. So they are large enough to make a meaningful difference to the performance of each fund. Among those big positions is business information and analytics provider Relx and investment service provider Hargreaves Lansdown. The company also owns shares in business software and solutions specialist Sage and luxury goods provider Burberry. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.last_img read more

John Ohmer habla el 11 de febrero en la ceremonia de dedicación de una tarja que honra a los esclavos que construyeron la iglesia de la Cascada [Falls Church] en la ciudad de Falls Church, Virginia. Foto de Falls Church vía Facebook.[Episcopal News Service] Si algún aprecio por la historia le reconforta junto con el Espíritu Santo el domingo por la mañana, hay algunas cosas que debe saber antes de asistir a la iglesia de la Cascada [Falls Church].Ante todo, hay dos Falls Church. La ciudad de Falls Church, Virginia, se constituyó como tal después que la iglesia episcopal le había dado nombre a su parroquia. La congregación es anterior a la guerra de Independencia y adora en una iglesia construida en 1769, diseñada por James Wren, un arquitecto cuyo nombre puede leerse en una tarja empotrada en la senda de ladrillos que conduce a la puerta de la iglesia.Y la iglesia fue levantada por obreros esclavos —una vieja omisión en la historia de la iglesia que recientemente fue corregida con una segunda taja que rinde tributo a esos esclavos y da testimonio de “gratitud y arrepentimiento”.La senda de ladrillos incluye ahora dos tarjas paralelas que honran al arquitecto James Wren y a los esclavos que construyeron la iglesia que él diseñó. Foto de Falls Church, vía Facebook.“Fue una oportunidad de decir algo más que un mero reconocimiento”, dijo Nikki Henderson, una de los líderes de la iniciativa de identificar el papel de los esclavos en los primeros años de la iglesia. “Era una oportunidad de decir algo sobre la institución que los puso en la situación de ser obreros forzados”.También ello sigue a amplios empeños de la Iglesia Episcopal de enfatizar la reconciliación racial y de enfrentar la complicidad del pasado de la Iglesia con la esclavitud y el racismo.Obispos y diputados comenzaron a debatir el racismo desde la reunión de la Convención General en 1976. Una resolución aprobada por la Convención General de 1991 comprometía a la Iglesia a “abordar el racismo institucional dentro de nuestra Iglesia y en la sociedad” y una resolución de 2000 renovaba ese compromiso por otros nueve años y lamentaba “el silencio histórico y la complicidad de nuestra Iglesia en el pecado del racismo”. El tema del racismo se ha discutido en todas las subsecuentes convenciones generales.La iglesia de la Cascada estaba ansiosa de ponerle fin a ese “silencio histórico”.“La reconciliación racial es una parte importantísima de vivir a la altura de nuestro pacto bautismal, y eso es lo que motiva gran parte de nuestra identidad aquí”, dijo el Rdo. John Ohmer, rector de la iglesia.Él dijo que la congregación y la comunidad han apoyado con entusiasmo los esfuerzos por “no huir de nuestra historia, sino por asumir esa parte de nuestra historia que fue esclavista, y luego reconocer el hecho de que el racismo en nuestro país —racismo sistémico, racismo eclesiástico, racismo individual— sigue todavía en gran medida con nosotros”.Henderson y un equipo de investigadores voluntarios de la iglesia pasaron varios años intentando sacar del anonimato a los esclavos que construyeron la iglesia. No hay claros registros que le atribuyan la iglesia a mano de obra esclava, pero los investigadores encontraron pruebas suficientes para llegar confiadamente a esa conclusión.“Está ahí bajo la superficie, y al igual que muchos hechos históricos durante ese tiempo, debido a lo sensible del asunto, uno no va a encontrar un documento que lo diga, uno tiene que asumir una conjetura bien fundamentada”, dijo ella.El proyecto surgió de una conversación de Henderson hace años con una mujer de la iglesia que tenía alguna información inicial que apuntaba hacia la verdadera historia del edificio. Con la ayuda del archivista de la iglesia y la Fundación del Legado de Tinner Hill, que dirigen Henderson y su  marido, una documentación mayor comenzó a ofrecer un cuadro más completo.La escasez de mano de obra fue un detalle clave. Así como africanos libres y esclavos construyeron la Casa Blanca hacia fines del siglo XVIII porque no podían encontrarse otros obreros que hicieran el trabajo, el equipo de Henderson descubrió que Wren no pudo contratar hombres para construir la nueva iglesia de la Cascada a pesar del anuncio que había puesto en un periódico local.Finalmente se decidió a construirlo por sí mismo, dijo Henderson. Tal proyecto sería demasiado para lo que podía llegar a realizar un solo hombre.Los investigadores de la iglesia también encontraron el testamento de Wren, el cual reveló que tenía 23 esclavos, los cuales pasaron a ser propiedad de su esposa después que él murió. Sólo a uno de ellos identificaba por su nombre, Charles, y decía que era un trabajador calificado. Además, a los esclavos de esa época se les conocía por su habilidad de hacer ladrillos, otro detalle que apoya la conclusión de los investigadores.Ahora las contribuciones de esos trabajadores esclavos está siendo plenamente reconocida. La nueva tarja fue dedicada en una ceremonia el 11 de febrero, y aparece junto a la tarja que rinde tributo a Wren.La iglesia de la Cascada eligió deliberadamente la palabra “arrepentimiento” en lugar de “disculpa” al grabar la tarja que honra a los trabajadores esclavos que construyeron la iglesia. Foto de Falls Church vía Facebook.“Con gratitud y arrepentimiento honramos a las personas esclavizadas cuyas destrezas y trabajo ayudaron a construir la iglesia de la Cascada”, dice la nueva tarja.Ohmer enfatiza “arrepentimiento”, diciendo que los miembros de la iglesia creyeron que “excusas” no habría sido una palabra lo suficientemente convincente. Esa búsqueda de arrepentimiento ha sido adoptada por la Diócesis de Virginia en sus empeños en pro de la reconciliación racial.“Al expresar arrepentimiento y mencionarlo junto con la gratitud a ‘las personas esclavizadas’ que ayudaron a construir su iglesia, el clero y los feligreses de Falls Church no sólo han corregido un error de omisión, [sino que] se han comprometido con ulteriores actos de reconciliación”, dijo Aisha Huertas, encargada del ministerio intercultural de la diócesis. “Como diócesis y como comunidad de fe eso es precisamente lo que todos nosotros estamos llamados a hacer, tanto dentro de nuestros propios muros como en la comunidad en general”.La experiencia ha fortalecido el aprecio de Henderson por la iglesia episcopal de la Cascada.“Es una congregación maravillosa” dijo ella, añadiendo, “soy afroamericana, y la iglesia es predominantemente blanca, y percibo profundamente que parte de nuestra división racial se debe a que no nos conocemos unos a otros”.Henderson, de 68 años, se unió a la iglesia hace unos pocos años en parte movida por su interés en salvar esa brecha, que respondía a la observación de Martin Luther King Jr. de que las 11 A.M. del domingo es  la hora más segregada de Estados Unidos.“Hablamos de sanar la división racial”, apuntó Henderson. “Creo que debemos ampliar ese alcance”.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

first_imgThe top attorney in the country, the person who is supposed to uphold the law the most, is also the most crooked and dangerous. Not to mention that he is an utter white supremacist who wouldn’t mind at all if the country went fascist. Even his own colleagues, other lawyers who operate daily in an unjust justice system to begin with, charge U.S. Attorney General William Barr with “a pattern of alleged ethical violations … in the last two years” alone. (Bloomberg Law, July 24)In fact, the NY Law Journal published an article titled “It’s Clear: Attorney General William Barr Must Go” written by Elliott Jacobson. (June 25) Jacobson is not alone in calling for Barr’s disbarment.  So it was no surprise to anyone when on July 22, Attorney General William Barr stated that the responses to the murder of George Floyd are “extreme reactions that have demonized police.” (CNN, July 23)As a result, he went on, there has been “a significant increase in violent crime in many cities.”This statement was made at the very moment that federal and Immigration Customs Enforcement agents, under Barr’s leadership, are beating, gassing and arresting protesters in Portland, Ore., in actions that are reminiscent of Nazi Germany or fascist Chile. Activists who are determined to honor the name of George Floyd while others are being brutally pulled off the streets and into unmarked cars. Stand off with federal troops in Seattle on July 25.Barr’s statement was made at the same time that he and Trump promised to send these very same storm troopers to other urban areas under the direction of only the federal government. This is a far departure from what exists now, where local governments have more say. Why did Barr say this now, over two months since Brother Floyd was killed? Barr and the cabal in the White House are sending messages to the right wing, and especially the cops, that they are determined to continue carrying out their war against the workers and the oppressed. Furthermore, they are setting up a situation where Barr and Trump alone dictate the actions of the federal stormtroopers.The fact that the protests that erupted after the heinous murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless others have not ebbed has the ruling capitalist class not only worried but frightened.The perfect storm of ongoing police terror against people of color and an economic crisis aggravated by a cruel health pandemic have resulted in not only disillusionment with the capitalist system, but anger that is not likely to cool down.Operation Legend ‘surges’Barr’s comments were made at a White House press conference where the Trump administration announced that the government will be launching a “federal law enforcement surge” to urban areas. (Justice Department, July 8)The program is called “Operation Legend,” cynically and mockingly named after four-year-old LeGend Taliferro, a child killed while asleep in Kansas City, Mo., allegedly by an unknown drive-by shooter.With “Operation Legend,” the Trump administration has sarcastically taken the actual war of racist police against people of color and turned it around to launch a program that will intensify that war. The DOJ describes Operation Legend as a “sustained, systematic and coordinated law enforcement initiative across all federal law enforcement agencies working in conjunction with state and local law enforcement officials to fight the sudden surge of violent crime, beginning in Kansas City, MO. Operation Legend was created as a result of President Trump’s promise to assist America’s cities that are plagued by recent violence.”The DOJ, instead of investigating and punishing police and vigilantes who terrorize the people, is launching a “surge” of those who carry out that terror. Federal and ICE agents are terrorizing the people of Portland. Racists are killing protesters in Austin, Texas. With Operation Legend, the Trump administration, including Barr, is not just sending a dog whistle, but an air raid siren calling on all white supremacists to continue these attacks against the movement.The so-called violence that Barr and Trump refer to may or may not be real. It may be serious or not. But the solution to any antisocial actions in the communities of color and among the poor will not be resolved with Operation Legend. In fact, it will only aggravate them.  It will divert attention from the real problems of unemployment, lack of education and health care. A “surge” of the very agents who killed George Floyd means further occupation of a terrorist force.The only solution to problems in the cities is money for jobs, health care and education, not police occupation. Block-by-block organizing, self-defense committees, domestic violence hot lines, food pantries, etc., are desperately needed, not more police occupation. When the Trump administration announced the “surge” of police to Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in a July 21 tweet: “Under no circumstances will I allow Donald Trump’s troops to come to Chicago and terrorize our residents.”According to Channel 5 news in Chicago, Mayor Lightfoot stated: “In Portland (the feds) ignored the (local) U.S. Attorney, put these agents on the street and I don’t think anyone can quibble with the fact that what happened was not only unconstitutional, it was undemocratic.”  (July 22) The city of Chicago is launching a lawsuit against Troop to prevent federal troops from coming there.  The top attorney in this country is a white supremacist crook with no respect for democracy or the constitution, his own colleagues in the legal world have now stated.But revolutionaries have always known that the legal system under capitalism has never represented the interests of the workers and the oppressed. When it is coming for the liberals, it’s time to worry about the encroachment of fascism in the U.S. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

We ask him to take a look at what’s the dairy industry look like in the not too distant future? 5 years or 10 years down the road. What are things that are coming that we can’t change? When we’re at home on our farm, we want to change things and fix them. But what’s coming that we cannot change and we’re going to have to learn to conform to?”Sipiorski will also host a breakout session during the event. Other topics covered will include transition planning for your farm, the current market situation, ag law, among others.Leman says he knows there are some producers who will say they just don’t have the time to get away from the farm for the event, but… “I think it’s an, ‘I need to get away’ type of event. I want people to come, relax a little bit. I know what it is when things are tough on the farm. Take that deep breath, relax a little bit, meet some friends, make a new friend, find somebody you can speak confidently with. Find those 3 nuggets. Find those 3 things during this forum that you can take home and help to make your operation better.”And to encourage folks to get registered for the event, a special deal is going on now.“Any producer in Indiana that registers before our early bird deadline, which is December 31, part of the registration is going to be a credit towards their farm membership this year.

first_img ItalyEurope – Central Asia Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union Receive email alerts November 19, 2020 Find out more RSF_en November 23, 2020 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders today condemned threats made to the Italian media since it revealed corruption in the Genoa football club in June this year and called on the government to protect journalists and ensure press freedom.Six journalists have been threatened so far, the offices of two newspapers have been besieged by team supporters (“tifosi”) and the editor of one is being prosecuted. “These reactions are absurd,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Journalists have simply done their job by exposing illegal practices in sport.”A reporter of the national daily Repubblica received telephoned death threats at his office and home on 28 October. The journalist, who wants to remain anonymous for his own protection, had reported the result of the corruption enquiry. He mentioned the violent and provocative behaviour of the tifosi but also criticised financial laxness by the club’s managers. Lanfranco Vaccari, managing editor of the daily Il Secolo XIX, and one of the paper’s journalists, Marco Menduni, were prosecuted on 27 October for revealing that an enquiry had started into apparently fixed national championship matches last season and reporting confidential details of the enquiry. Vaccari was given a police escort in July for two months after receiving threats. He had simply expressed his opinion on the scandal. The paper’s offices were besieged on 29 July by several hundred tifosi, who threw stones and bottles at the building and threatened police trying to protect it. The paper was then guarded for a week by police. The local offices of Repubblica were similarly attacked and small rockets were fired by the protesters. Hounding of journalists began in mid-June after Repubblica began reporting the corruption.

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / CFPB Arbitration Rule Faces Opposition Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago In May, the CFPB released its proposed rule that would prohibit mandatory arbitration clauses that the bureau said denies groups of consumers “their day in court.” On August 22, the comment period for the proposal came to an end but that hasn’t stopped organizations against the proposal from speaking out.The American Bankers Association, the Consumer Bankers Association and the Financial Services Roundtable created a 42-page rebuttal for the proposal stating, “The proposed rule does not benefit society or consumers.”The rebuttal continues on saying, “Both lose because, as taxpayers, consumers will have to pay for additional resources needed by courts to accommodate the permanent influx of 6,042 additional class actions every five years. They lose because the cost of defending and settling cases — estimated to be between $2.62 billion and $5.23 billion every five years (100 additional lawsuits each month) — will be passed along to consumers in whole or in part in the form of higher prices or reduced services. Finally, they lose because, in exchange for waiting years to recover an average of $32.35, they lose all of the benefits of arbitration — benefits that the bureau itself touts to its own employees and expressly acknowledges in the proposed rule.”The trio also stated that the CFPB failed to consider alternatives that would address the need for a ban of class action waivers. The groups proposed multiple arguments for why arbitration is much more efficient for both consumers and financial services providers citing it was not needed to protect consumers and was not consistent with the arbitration study results done by the CFPB for Congress.These groups are not the only ones vocalizing their dissatisfaction for the proposal. FreedomWork Foundation also reported that they generated 15,000 responses in objection to the rule. They stated in a recent release that they believe more class action lawsuits will lead to increased costs for all consumers as the sellers of financial products pass on those costs, with only trial lawyers benefiting from this proposal.The CFPB shared in a release on the proposal that arbitration clauses leave consumers to seek relief on their own – usually over small amounts – but with the proposal, these rules would make the individual arbitration process more transparent by requiring companies that use arbitration clauses to submit any claims filed and awards issued in arbitration to the CFPB.“Signing up for a credit card or opening a bank account can often mean signing away your right to take the company to court if things go wrong,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “Many banks and financial companies avoid accountability by putting arbitration clauses in their contracts that block groups of their customers from suing them. Our proposal seeks comment on whether to ban this contract gotcha that effectively denies groups of consumers the right to seek justice and relief for wrongdoing.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago August 25, 2016 2,075 Views Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Kendall Baer Kendall Baer is a Baylor University graduate with a degree in news editorial journalism and a minor in marketing.
