The phrase ‘once in a lifetime’ tends to be bandied around like confetti when it comes to talking about investments. If you’re talking about investing in gold, though, it’s a description that I feel is fully deserved. But is putting your money in this particular commodity a better idea than buying UK shares?First let’s look at gold’s appeal right now. This week it’s rocketed to levels that no-one has ever seen in their lifetime before. Having banged through the previous 2011 high around $1,920 per ounce to a top of $1,975 on Monday it has fallen back modestly as investors have booked profits.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…A charge through $2,000 per ounce is an inevitability, though, and one that I expect to happen sooner rather than later, too. I think that getting exposure to gold is a brilliant way to try to make a million, then. And investors can do this by buying into some choice UK shares.Investment demand has rocketed!Gold prices have been on an upwards slant for more than a year now as fears over the global economy have accelerated. But gains up until the beginning of 2020 were modest compared to the ripping advances following the Covid-19 outbreak. Bullion was trading much cheaper at around $1,515 per ounce on 1 January.Recent data from Refinitiv illustrates how strong flight-to-safety investment demand for gold has been. According to the latest edition of its much-respected GFMS Gold Survey, total bullion holdings in gold-backed exchange-traded funds (or ETFs) clocked in at 436 tonnes in Q2 2020. This was up a whopping 361% from the same 2019 quarter.Refinitiv believes that gold hasn’t shot its bolt yet, either. According to Cameron Alexander, director of precious metals research at the organisation:“… the overall macroeconomic backdrop remains very supportive for gold. We believe that gold will continue its uptrend, driven by growing concerns over the global economic recession, fears of a second wave of COVID-19, heightened geopolitical tensions, historically low and negative interest rates as well as rising inflationary expectation amidst unprecedented levels of stimulus measures launched by central banks around the globe.”Great gold stocksConditions couldn’t be more perfect for gold or gold investors, then. This is why I believe that the metal offers a once-in-a-lifetime buying opportunity right now.And this is where buying UK shares comes into the equation. Now you can buy into one of those ETFs. You can buy bars and coins of the yellow metal as well. Doing this will let you ride the growing gold price and make big returns during this potentially-turbulent decade.But this is not the most efficient way to use your cash. Instead I think you should buy UK shares like Centamin, Polymetal International, or Highland Gold Mining. These gold stocks allow you to piggyback a rising metal price while earning a handsome dividend. These particular gold shares offer forward yields of between 4.5% and 5%.Buying gold stocks is a brilliant tactic for share investors. It’s one of the hottest games in town in my opinion, though it’s not the only way that UK shares can help you make a million following the stock market crash.last_img read more

ENGLAND: Anglican Covenant defeated in majority of dioceses

The 17th century Church of England was the only part of the historic Western Catholic Church to survive the Reformation/Counter Reformation without becoming a confessional church. The emergence of the Anglican Communion as a world-wide, reformed, non-confessional Catholic Church requires that we pursue ways of being “church” without resorting to the outdated models of the 17th and subsequent centuries. A possible non-Western model for us to consider is the Eastern Orthodox Communion of autocephalous churches in communion with the Patriarch of Constantinople. The ARCIC proposals contained in “The Gift of Authority: Authority in the Church III” (ISBN 0-89869-325-X [CPI]) are the beginning, in my opinion, of a more fruitful and Spirit-filled approach to the question of unity within the Anglican Communion and in the Western Churches at large. They present a way of moving forward based on Scripture, Tradition, and Reason.

The inclusion of gays was a true gift of the spirit, for this wasn’t something new but something restored and it was achieved through reason. it was a tradition lost in the 11th century. The communion must HOLD. The faith passed down to us by the Apostles must be primary. Just because one may dislike homosexuals doesn’t mean much. What matters is what G-D thinks of them and what G-D wants for them in life, and nine times out of ten its inclusion with love. Bishop Gene is a prime example of what G-D wants homosexuals to try, the same thing He wants heterosexuals to try, FOLLOWING HIM. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Bath, NC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Pittsburgh, PA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Associate Rector Columbus, GA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC [Episcopal News Service] A majority of dioceses in the Church of England have voted down the proposed Anglican Covenant, a set of principles intended to bind the Anglican Communion provinces despite theological differences and cultural disputes.The six diocesan synods meeting and voting on the covenant this past weekend brought the current figures to 23 against and 15 in favor, out of a total of 44 dioceses throughout the Church of England. The church’s General Synod, in November 2010, voted in favor of continuing the process towards adopting the Anglican Covenant and asked the church’s dioceses for their input.Following the recent news, the Rev. Canon Kenneth Kearon, secretary general of the Anglican Communion, issued a statement “to clarify the current situation across the Anglican Communion,” he said, noting that seven out of 38 provinces have “approved, or subscribed” to the covenant, with the Anglican Church of Southern Africa having adopted the document pending ratification at its next synod meeting later this year.The seven provinces, Kearon said, are the Anglican churches of Ireland, Mexico, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, South East Asia, Southern Cone of America, and the West Indies.Meanwhile, the Episcopal Church in the Philippines bishops have formally rejected the covenant and Maori action in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia last November means that it will be voted down when it comes before the province’s General Synod in July 2012.In the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, the Executive Council agreed at its October 2011 meeting to submit a resolution to General Convention that would have it state that the church is “unable to adopt the Anglican Covenant in its present form.”The resolution also promises that the church will “recommit itself to dialogue with the several provinces when adopting innovations which may be seen as threatening the unity of the communion” and commits to “continued participation in the wider councils of the Anglican Communion” and dialogue “with our brothers and sisters in other provinces to deepen understanding and to insure the continued integrity of the Anglican Communion.”The 77th meeting of General Convention will decide in July whether to pass, amend and pass, or reject the resolution.During a recent visit to England, Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves of the California-based Diocese of El Camino Real, told ENS that international partnerships, such as the one that her diocese shares with Gloucester and Western Tanganyika in Tanzania, are the “antidote to the Anglican Covenant.”Bishop Michael Perham of Gloucester, whose diocese has rejected the covenant, agreed.The Anglican Covenant first was proposed in the 2004 Windsor Report as a way that the communion and its 38 autonomous provinces might maintain unity despite differences, especially relating to biblical interpretation and human sexuality issues. The report came in the wake of the 2003 election of Gene Robinson, an openly gay priest, as bishop of New Hampshire, a development that caused some provinces to declare broken or impaired communion with the Episcopal Church. It also was a response to some church leaders crossing borders into other provinces to minister to disaffected Anglicans.Following years of discussion and several draft versions, the final text of the covenant was sent in December 2009 to the communion’s 38 provinces for formal consideration.Some Episcopalians and Anglicans, including the Executive Council, have raised concerns about the covenant being used as an instrument of control, questioning in particular its section 4, which outlines a method for resolving disputes in the communion. Some critics have warned that adopting the covenant could result in a two-tier communion.The Rev. Lesley Fellows, moderator of the No Anglican Covenant Coalition, in a March 25 statement called the covenant a “proposal to centralize communion-wide authority in the hands of a small, self-selecting group.” In response to the recent news from England, she noted that the covenant debate cannot return to the agenda of General Synod for at least three years.“We hope that the Church of England will now look to bring reconciliation within the Anglican Communion by means of strengthening relationships rather than punitive legislation,” she said.Bishop James Jones of Liverpool, addressing his diocesan synod, which rejected the covenant on March 17, said: “Far from being the salvation of the communion the Anglican Covenant would seriously undermine it … Instead of setting us free to engage with a changing world it freezes us at a given point in our formation, holding us back and making us nervous about going beyond the boundaries and reaching out to God’s world.“When we are in Christ, we are in Christ with everybody else who is in Christ and in communion, whether we like it or not – or them or not, whether we agree with them or not.”But many conservative Anglicans also have rejected the covenant, saying that it does not go far enough to bring into line provinces that have taken steps towards the full inclusion of gays and lesbians in the life of the church.“While we acknowledge that the efforts to heal our brokenness through the introduction of an Anglican Covenant were well intentioned we have come to the conclusion the current text is fatally flawed and so support for this initiative is no longer appropriate,” a group of conservative Anglican primates, or archbishops, have said.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

It is also dishonest. I remember Lambeth’10 when the invited bishops were to self-critique whether or not they should attend based on whether or not they were Windsor compliant. Of course any truthful person knows that several American bishops flew over, attended, and then flew home to do the exact opposite of the Windsor agreements. California come to mind?This Church’s determined pursuit of all things revisionist must be held to account somehow because we are, in fact, augurering into the ground as a Church with statistics that would have seen the leadership replaced in any other truly accountable organization.We need a Covenant of accountability that does not allow the Church to continue wither away at the hands of social engineers and theological revisionists.

This house, set on a steep slope covered with typical Brazilian savanna vegetation, is located in front of a preserved area facing mountain views. Its location strategy, longitudinal to the terrain’s contour lines, is defined by the extensive cover concrete slab, which is fluidly inserted according to the specific needs of the program and the terrain. At first, the concrete slab appears as a light component, which rests on only two pillars. It has the function of marking the main access and the garage, as well as framing the panorama that walks between the spectacular view of the mountains and the limit of the densely populated area of Belo Horizonte.Save this picture!© Jomar BragançaSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jomar BragançaFurther down the slab slopes downwards, connecting to the terrace where the pool and the large wooden deck are located, which defines the main spaces of the ground floor. The deck covers the whole course of the slab, shading it and hiding the inverted beams, giving lightness to the whole structure. There are no barriers or fences on the ground floor. The house is inserted in the neighborhood as light and permeable element, counterpointing the set of fences and walls that are so regular in the surrounding. This strategy transforms the free areas around the house into ecological corridors, allowing the free circulation of wildlife on the ground.Save this picture!© Jomar BragançaThe private spaces of the house are all located below the ground floor. The living/dining room is just below the inclined segment of the roof slab, which allows abundant natural light to enter the room. On one side, large glass windows allow the view of the mountains. On the opposite side, a single steel/glass gate runs through the façade, connecting the room to a large grassy plateau – the backyard – surrounded by a stone retaining wall. The living room turns into a large balcony. The stone wall, over time, becomes an ecosystem, housing bees, ants, birds and lizards.Save this picture!© Jomar BragançaProject gallerySee allShow lessLa Serena House / Estudio Montevideo + Pablo DellatorreSelected ProjectsLumicene Designs Minimalist Prefab with Curved Glass to Connect with NatureArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeTETRO ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidential ArchitectureBrazilPublished on May 07, 2019Cite: “Inclined Slab House / TETRO Arquitetura” [Casa da Laje Inclinada / TETRO Arquitetura] 07 May 2019.

Located in Morin-Heights in the Laurentians, a large piece of land with a slightly mountainous topography was chosen by a young couple to build their family home. The mandate was to design a new residence, resolutely contemporary and harmonizing with its natural context and its environment. The two-storey building is divided into three distinct zones, organized around a vertical distribution: day rooms, night rooms, and technical rooms.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletResponding to the constraints related to the topography and the tree canopy, the day rooms are located upstairs to benefit from the natural light coming from the east and south. The night rooms are located on the ground floor; there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. In all rooms, abundant windows allow the landscape to be framed, particularly upstairs, where we can see the mountains, in the distance, between the trees. The outdoor terraces are placed on the second level, thus connecting them directly to the living spaces. As an extension of the building, above the carport, the main terrace faces northwest, to take advantage of the natural light on summer afternoons.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletInside, sober spaces and a light color palette highlight the surrounding landscape – a wish shared by both clients and architects.

OCC Says Banking System is in a Position of Strength

first_img About Author: Kendall Baer Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: OCC Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Related Articles OCC Says Banking System is in a Position of Strength Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The U.S. banking system in 2016 is as well capitalized as any in the world as key industry participants continue to apply the basis lessons they learned from the financial crisis of 2008, according to Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry in a public address this week.In a speech this week at Harvard Kennedy School, Curry said in the eight years since the crisis, the banking system has progressed to the point where it would be a mistake to change course.“The hard work that U.S. regulators and bankers did in response to the crisis now has U.S. banks in a position of strength,” Curry said. “But my job is to ask how well we—regulators and bankers—are preparing for the next stress event or downturn. And, now is not the time to change course. We must remain vigilant about the levels of capital in good times so it will be there to serve as a bulwark during the next recession. We need to manage the risks of eventually increasing interest rates after this extended period of historic lows.”Curry noted that the banks are stronger today, but that those who have been in the business for more than one cycle know that a downturn is inevitable.“Effective regulation and supervision will help ensure that the trough will not be so deep or so wide,” Curry said.Comptroller of the Currency Thomas CurryThe three basic lessons that the crisis taught financial regulators are the value of strong capital and its corollary the danger of excessive leverage, the need for ample liquidity, and the importance of effective supervision, Curry said.“With regard to capital, our banking system is now as well capitalized as any in the world,” Curry said. “We achieved this level of capital through the concerted effort of regulators and bankers who recognize that stronger capital means stronger banks and that banks should grow their capital during healthier economic periods so that it is available during a downturn.”Curry stated that the danger of excessive leverage is tied to insufficient capital levels, and leverage among financial services firms increased in the period leading up to the crisis—particularly at the “investment banking” firms such as Lehman Brothers.“While it makes perfect sense for banks to hold capital levels commensurate with their risks through the application of aptly named risk-based capital standards, we also have long recognized that such measures are not perfect,” Curry said. “For this reason, we have employed leverage ratios to serve as an additional line of defense, or backstop, to the risk-based capital measures. As noted previously, we have taken a proportionate approach to constraining bank leverage by employing a slightly more sophisticated leverage ratio measure for the largest banks.”A lack of liquidity was a key issue in the solvency issues that banking and finance companies faced in 2008, Curry said, but that problem has been sufficiently addressed by regulators.“Since then we have taken steps in the right direction by implementing the Liquidity Coverage Ratio and proposing the Net Stable Funding Ratio,” Curry said. “These two ratios complement each other and push covered banks to hold sufficient ready resources to meet short-term cash outflows and encourage banks to shift to more stable, longer term funding by relying less on short-term wholesale funding.”Click here to read Curry’s complete speech.

Filed by two Delhi University students who are the residents of UP and Bihar, the petition argues that this decision would adversely affect the health concerns of those who have been living in Delhi but do not have a bonafide proof of residence. While claiming that the said order of the Delhi Government breaches Articles 14 and 15 of the Constitution, the Petitioners submit that the order is neither based on intelligible differentia nor meets with the objective sought to be achieved of controlling the spread of COVID- 19 in the NCT of Delhi.It is also argued that the said order is violative of Article 19(1)(e) of the Constitution as the same under the aegis of pandemic is forcing the residents to move out of the State. The decision also infracts the right to health under Article 21 of the Constitution, the petitioners state.”It is submitted that under the umbrella of the impugned notification the govt. of NCT of Delhi is not only discriminating the individuals for treatment from the present pandemic but on the contrary the same act will lead to escalation of COVID cases as the infected individuals will not be identified which will further add fuel to the fire”, the petition states. In addition to this, the Petitioner claims that the said order can promote the malpractices of private hospital selling bed which is, as per the Petitioner, is going in Delhi.The order was issued by Secretary, Department of Health and Family Welfare, GNCTD, on Sunday invoking powers under the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897 and Delhi Epidemic Diseases, COVID-19 Regulations, 2020.Citing the surge of COVID-19 positive cases in Delhi, resulting in additional demand of hospital beds, Health Secretary ordered that “all the hospitals operating under the Government of NCT of Delhi and all private hospitals and nursing homes shall ensure that only bona fide residents of NCT of Delhi are admitted for treatment in these hospitals”.However, transplantation, oncology, neurosurgeries, treatment for road accident cases and acid attack cases happening within NCT of Delhi were allowed to continue in all hospitals irrespective of residence of patients.The order also listed the documents to show residence status, such as Voter ID, Bank/Kisan/Post Office current Passbook, Ration Card, Driving License, Passport, Income Tax Returns, Latest Water/Telephone/Electricity/Gas Connection Bill in the name of patient or his/her immediate relations like parents etc, postal department’s post delivered at the patient’s name at given address, Aadhaar card made prior to June 7.Next Storylast_img read more
