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. Overcoming an inadequate State Pension could prove to be a challenging task. Low interest rates mean that the returns on cash savings accounts have been very disappointing over recent years. That situation could continue over the years ahead as an uncertain outlook for the UK economy may mean that the Bank of England takes a cautious stance when it comes to raising interest rates.As such, investing in the stock market rather than holding cash could prove to be a worthwhile move. It could deliver significantly higher returns that ultimately provide the opportunity to make a passive income in retirement that reduces your reliance on the State Pension.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 challenging futureBeating the State Pension may become increasingly challenging over the coming years. The age at which it starts being paid is expected to rise to 67 over the next decade, with further increases anticipated after that. This means that many people of working age may find they are almost 70 years old before they start to receive their State Pension!And while saving up for retirement was feasible while interest rates were higher before the financial crisis, the outlook for cash savings seems to be negative today. The pace at which they rise in the coming years could prove to be slow, and they may even fall before they start to increase due to an uncertain outlook for the wider economy.A potential solutionAs such, investing in the stock market could be the obvious solution to improving your income in older age. Through buying a diverse range of shares in a tax-efficient account such as a Stocks and Shares ISA or a SIPP, you could generate a surprisingly large nest egg from which a passive income can be drawn.For example, investing £200 per month in the FTSE 100, rather than holding it in a savings account, could produce a nest egg of £203,000 over a 25-year period. This assumes a 9% annual total return, which is the same return as the index has posted since its inception in 1984. Assuming cash savings offer an interest rate of 1.5% over the same period, they would be worth just £72,000.A rising passive incomeOf course, it may be possible to obtain a higher rate of return than that offered by the FTSE 100. If you buy shares that offer good value for money and strong growth prospects relative to the wider index, you may be able to beat the index’s return and produce an even larger nest egg.With there being a number of large-cap shares at the present time that appear to offer wide margins of safety and improving financial outlooks, now could be the right time to start buying FTSE 100 shares. Investor sentiment may be relatively downbeat due to risks such as the coronavirus and geopolitical uncertainty in Europe. But by building a diverse range of stocks in an ISA, you could improve your retirement prospects and overcome the challenges posed by a rising State Pension age.last_img read more

Royston Wild | Monday, 9th March, 2020 | More on: SBRY The market sell-off on Monday is worsening. The FTSE 100 may be off early morning’s near-four-year lows below 6,000 points but it’s moving back towards these troughs again. A dive even further below these levels could arrive at any moment.We here at The Motley Fool don’t believe that now’s the time to pull up the drawbridge and panic. Volatility is part and parcel of share investing, of course. The falls we are seeing today might be the biggest since the 2008/09 global financial meltdown, but before you think of selling up, it’s important to remember that investing in stocks is a long-term endeavour.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…Studies show that individuals who buy into stocks and hold them for, say, a minimum of 10 years, can be expected to generate a return of at least 8% per year. Speaking as a share investor myself, I haven’t been minded to sell my holdings and run for the hills. I believe in the quality of my stocks and reckon they will bounce back and strongly too.Get busy!In fact, there are a number of London-quoted companies I have my eye on right now. In the words of billionaire investor Warren Buffett it pays to “be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”There are many good-looking shares changing hands at rock-bottom prices today. Stocks of all shapes and sizes, irrespective of their risk profiles, are sinking right now. FTSE 100 stalwart J Sainsbury (LSE: SBRY), for instance, is down 5% in Monday business. It’s also within striking distance of the six-month lows of below 200p struck in recent sessions.This weakness leaves the supermarket looking quite attractive on paper. A predicted 4% earnings rise in the fiscal year to March 2020 leaves it dealing on a price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 10.3 times. Moreover, right now Sainsbury’s carries a gigantic 5.3% forward dividend yield.I think I’ll passThe selling fever that’s gripped share markets is smashing cyclical and safe-haven shares alike. Even defence companies, pharmaceutical developers, food producers, consumer goods manufacturers and utilities are falling. Investors don’t care about their proven resilience in troubled times. Everything is going into the bin.I remain confident that many of these fallers can recover their losses once the worst of the washout passes though. But this doesn’t mean that I’m backing Sainsbury’s to make a terrific recovery. You could argue that food retailers, like producers will never go out of fashion. We always need to eat, of course. And the products over at Sainsbury’s aren’t so expensive that sales would collapse should broader economic conditions in the UK suffer and the coronavirus keep spreading.For me though, the threat posed by rising competition in the supermarket space makes the Footsie supermarket a risk too far, even at the current share price. The likes of Aldi and Lidl are running roughshod over the Big Four established chains. With these firms expanding their estates, it’s likely that revenues over at Sainsbury’s et al will continue to struggle (these fell 0.7% on a like-for-like basis in the 15 weeks to January 4). And things could get really miserable should the Germans expand into online retailing, as many are tipping.

Should you buy these 3 growth stocks, recently promoted to the FTSE 100?

first_img Amid the current turmoil unfolding in stock markets around the world, the FTSE UK Index had its quarterly review in early March.FTSE Russell, the global index provider, announced that three FTSE 250 stocks would receive promotion to the coveted FTSE 100 index.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 dishing out these promotions, the index provider also announced the three companies receiving a demotion to join the FTSE 250 index. In the rebalance, Kingfisher, NMC Health, and TUI AG left the FTSE 100.Let’s meet the three companies joining the giants and consider if they’re worth a place in a portfolio.FresnilloFresnillo (LSE: FRES) is a Mexican-based precious metals mining company incorporated in the UK and headquartered in Mexico.At the beginning of March, the company announced a plunge in full-year profits due to lower ore grades. This comes as a result of a slowdown in production at one of its principal mines in Mexico. Pre-tax profits fell by 63% and revenue remained almost flat.Despite a recent spike in the price of gold and promotion to the FTSE 100, I don’t think the outlook for Fresnillo looks too healthy.With the broader macroeconomic environment reaming uncertain for the foreseeable future, I’d be inclined to look elsewhere for stocks that are likely to grow in times to come.Intermediate Capital GroupIntermediate Capital Group (LSE: ICP) is a global alternative asset manager. The firm focuses on providing capital to help companies grow through private and public markets.The company’s share price rampaged upwards from January 2017 through January 2020, skyrocketing by around 168%. This outstanding performance was continually propped up by impressive yearly results.However, with the outbreak of the coronavirus the share price plummeted by around 60%. Since then, it has staged a minimal bounce back but still remains around 54% down on previous highs.With a healthy price-to-earnings ratio of 9.87, I think the bumper sell-off experienced by Intermediate Capital Group was based on unrealistic downside scenarios.The company remains in a solid position to build sustainable growth. What’s more, I really like the look of their business model, which enables the Group to deliver its strategic objectives as it has done so successfully thus far.Pennon GroupPennon Group (LSE: PNN) is a British water utility and waste management company based in Exeter.From August 2019 to February 2020, the firm’s share price increased by 70% on the back of solid full-year results. Profit before tax was up 22.7% and statutory earnings per share increased by 17.6%.As with the index as a whole, Pennon has taken a hit from the market crash caused by the coronavirus. However, a 14% reduction in the share price is striking in comparison with much larger losses for the majority of companies in the FTSE 100.Ultimately, I believe the company looks set to be relatively unaffected by the current market conditions. Water and waste management are necessary jobs that don’t vanish when economic uncertainty arises.All things considered, Pennon Group has an attractive platform for continued growth. It’s is a solid buy for me, especially considering the reduced price.

See all posts by Peter Stephens Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The natural response of any investor to the FTSE 100’s recent market crash is to await a period of calm before investing £10k, or any other amount, in equities. After all, no investor wants to buy stocks today and experience paper losses in the short run.However, it is while the stock market faces its greatest risks that many of its best buying opportunities appear. Through focusing your capital on high-quality businesses that trade at low prices, you can build a surprisingly large nest egg that may help you retire early.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…FTSE 100 outlookMany investors seek to buy FTSE 100 shares when they are trading at low prices so they can sell them at significantly higher prices further down the line. Many of the periods when stocks are at their lowest levels coincide with times when risks are at their highest. For example, many large-cap shares have crashed over recent months in response to challenging economic prospects for the UK and the rest of the world.While this may mean that buying shares today can produce paper losses in the short run, it also presents a buying opportunity for long-term investors. Over time, the index and its members are likely to recover from the current challenges they face. As such, long-term investors who can look beyond short-term risks may be able to implement a buy low/sell high strategy in order to improve their chances of building a large nest egg for retirement.Boosting your returnsAs well as having the self-discipline to buy FTSE 100 shares while they are trading at low price levels, investors can boost their returns through buying them in an ISA. A Stocks and Shares ISA offers tax efficiency, in terms of no tax being charged on the gains (dividends and share price growth) for the investments held and withdrawals. That could make a positive impact on your overall portfolio size in the long run.Furthermore, investors who focus their capital on those companies with solid business models and sound finances may be able to generate higher returns over the coming years. Such companies may be in a better position than their peers to take advantage of weaker market conditions to expand their presence. For example, they may have the financial strength to make acquisitions while asset prices are low to expand their profit potential over the long run.Retirement prospectsWith interest rates being low and house prices appearing to be overvalued versus average incomes, FTSE 100 shares could become increasingly popular among a wider range of investors. This may increase demand for high-quality businesses, and help to push their share prices even higher as the index recovers from its recent crash.This may take months, or even years, to occur. However, it has the potential to catalyse your retirement plans, and could even help you to retire early.last_img read more

Stock market crash: I’d buy dirt-cheap dividend shares today to make a passive income

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Buying dividend shares to make a passive income may seem to be a risky move after the stock market’s recent crash. However, a lack of appeal from other income-producing assets such as cash and bonds may mean that dividend shares offer an impressive long-term outlook.Furthermore, with many income stocks offering dividend growth potential as the world economy recovers, they could produce attractive total returns when purchased as part of a diverse portfolio of equities.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…Relative appealThe uncertain outlook for the world economy may mean that the yields available on dividend shares are relatively attractive. Low interest rates could be set to remain in place over the coming years as policymakers seek to offer support to the economy. The result may prove to be low income returns from assets that would normally form part of an income investor’s portfolio, such as cash and bonds.In fact, the returns from cash and bonds could prove to be lower than inflation in some cases. This may reduce your spending power and make the task of generating a passive income more challenging over the long run.Dividend growth potentialAs well as offering a higher income return in the current year than cash and bonds, dividend shares may offer a growing revenue stream over the long run.Certainly, many industries face an uncertain period at the present time. Factors such as rising unemployment and weak consumer confidence across many of the world’s major economies may cause challenging trading conditions that result in lower dividends than would normally be the case.However, over the long run, the track record of the world economy shows that it has been successful in overcoming its difficult periods to post positive growth. Therefore, the chances of dividend growth returning over the coming years appears to be high – even in industries that are currently facing weak operating conditions due to the coronavirus pandemic.Dividend growth could further enhance your passive income in the long run. It may also make the difference in returns between dividend shares and other income-producing assets much wider, since low interest rates may remain in place over the next few years to stimulate the economy.A diverse portfolio of dividend sharesBuying a range of dividend shares could be a means of reducing your risks and producing a more reliable passive income. Having exposure to different economies and a range of sectors can lower your reliance on a small number of companies from which to generate a regular passive income.With the cost of buying shares now lower than it ever has been, it could be a good time to spread your capital across a variety of dividend shares. It could lead to high income returns, as well as dividend growth as the world economy gradually recovers. See all posts by Peter Stephenslast_img read more

I think these are 2 of the best FTSE 100 shares to buy after the 2020 stock market crash

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Matthew Dumigan has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Matthew Dumigan | Wednesday, 15th July, 2020 | More on: BA OCDO The coronavirus pandemic and subsequent sell-off in equities dealt a serious blow to many companies listed in the FTSE 100. Fast-forward a few months and some are struggling to recover while others are flying high. Given the current market conditions, it can appear a difficult task for would-be investors to pick out the best FTSE 100 shares to buy today. With that in mind, here are two of my top picks after the 2020 stock market crash.Tech-focused online supermarketOnline grocery retailer Ocado (LSE: OCDO) was the best-performing FTSE 100 stock in the first quarter of 2020. The company’s share price is up 57% since the beginning of the year, far outperforming many other firms listed in the index. But is the company worthy of being classified as one of the best FTSE 100 shares out there?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…Explaining Ocado’s share price success isn’t rocket science. The online retailer has profited immensely from surging demand and shifting supermarket trends over the period of the global pandemic. Additionally, as a consumer staple, its products are constantly in demand, come what may.However, what differentiates Ocado from other supermarkets is its technology-driven focus. To illustrate, the company’s operating warehouses are decked out with state-of-the-art robotics that have thus far transformed the industry. What’s more, its tech division is a leading designer and supplier to other retailers worldwide.Yesterday’s half-year results announcement was full to the brim with yet more positive news. Group revenue grew 23% to reach just over £1bn, with retail revenue up by 27%. The report detailed a strong balance sheet and gave evidence of more investment into the technology side of the business.In my view, Ocado shares are a strong long-term play. I reckon investors could profit tidily through a combination of share price appreciation and dividend payments. Defence and aerospace titanUnlike Ocado, the BAE Systems (LSE: BA.) share price isn’t in positive territory for the year. After a 34% plunge in the depths of the sell-off, the company’s valuation is still down 18% since the beginning of 2020. Nevertheless, I’m confident that the company has a bright future outlook that could reward investors considerably over the coming years.The defence and aerospace specialist is a key supplier to major governments around the world. In fact, the company boasts a leading market position in the US, UK, Saudi Arabia, and Australia. On top of this, BAE is working to establish itself in numerous other international markets.With current geopolitical uncertainties not appearing to subside anytime soon, defence spending should remain a top priority for many of the governments that BAE have contracts with. Evidently, this stands the company in good stead moving forward. Despite analysts’ expectations that earnings will falter in the first half of 2020, management states that “demand for our capabilities remains high with order intake in line with our original expectations for the year”.With a forward-looking price-to-earnings ratio of just 10.4, the shares appear undervalued in my eyes. Consequently, I reckon BAE shares are a wise long-term investment that could deliver attractive returns in the years to come.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Investing £3,000, or any other amount, in UK shares after the stock market crash may not necessarily be a profitable move in the short run. The stock market may yet experience a further downturn due to risks such as coronavirus and Brexit.However, now could be the right time to buy bargain shares for the long run. In many cases, they trade on valuations significantly below their historic averages. Indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 having always recovered from their downturns to post new record highs. So the prospects for many UK shares appear to be attractive from a long-term perspective.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…Buying cheap UK shares after the market crashPerhaps the most obvious thing to do after a market crash is to buy the cheapest stocks that you can find. This can be a sound idea, but comes with the caveat that any stocks purchased should be high quality. That’s both in terms of their financial positions and long-term growth outlooks. If not, you may end up building a portfolio of stocks that are cheap for good reason, in terms of having weak recovery potential.Assessing the quality of any business is very subjective. However, financial metrics, such as debt compared to equity and the number of times interest payments can be made from operating profit, provide guidance on how solid a company’s foundations may be.At the present time, how a business will react to changing market conditions caused by coronavirus may also be highly relevant. Some industries could change significantly in the coming years, due to evolving consumer trends. As such, businesses will need a clear plan to adapt their operating models following the recent market crash.DiversificationThe market crash may have caused the vast majority of UK shares to decline in value. But in the coming years, some companies are bound to perform better than others. Therefore, it’s imperative to include a broad mix of businesses in your portfolio.For example, some industries may enjoy stronger growth rates than others. Meanwhile, some countries may perform better than the global average. Ensuring you have exposure to a variety of businesses means there’s a lower chance of being focused on industries and/or countries that fail to produce impressive growth rates.The majority of the FTSE 100’s revenue, and around half of the FTSE 250’s sales, are generated from international markets. So UK investors are likely to find the process of diversifying relatively straightforward after the market crash.Not only does diversification reduce overall risks, it may also enable you to benefit from a wider range of businesses. And that, over time, may enhance your portfolio returns. It may also enable you to experience a likely recovery in the stock market after a challenging period in 2020.

See all posts by Matthew Dumigan A stock market crash presents an opportunity for investors to hoover up shares in companies trading on discounted valuations. When market sentiment deteriorates rapidly, many shares can be oversold and, thus, appear undervalued. So, if you’re intending to invest money in the stock market, today could be an ideal time to do so.Investing money in the aftermath of a stock market crashSince the major sell-off in March, global stocks have risen sharply. In fact, the American blue-chip index (the S&P 500) recently reached a new all-time high. That’s pretty staggering considering the bleak economic conditions and an ever-present threat of a second wave of coronavirus infections.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…However, many UK shares haven’t enjoyed the same success as their American counterparts. To illustrate, the FTSE 100 index is still down by around 20% since the beginning of 2020. Rather than being put off by this, I think investors should see it as an opportunity. With countless British companies still trading on dirt-cheap valuations, now could be a fantastic time to buy shares in high-quality businesses.With that in mind, I’d direct my attention towards searching for companies that are trading well below their average historic valuations. As well as offering a wide margin of safety, this indicates the company’s shares may be undervalued. Picking up such shares while they’re cheap often results in tidy returns further down the line. Especially when investor sentiment towards the company picks up again. This strategy is one of the ways in which investing genius Warren Buffett has made his millions over the years.The path to getting rich and retiring earlyOnce you’ve invested your money in a handful of cheap UK shares, it’s time to sit back and hold for the long term. While short-term risks will inevitably continue to take their toll on equities, this shouldn’t be a concern for long-term investors. Why? Because having a long-term horizon allows you to ride out any temporary market downswings. On top of this, it also aids the process of compounding returns, which is key to making serious gains.Over time, the stock market has a track record of delivering favourable returns to investors. For example, the average annual return of the FTSE 100 index over the last 30 years has been around 8%. The FTSE 250’s is even higher at approximately 12%.Those investing money in the stock market can expect to realise a decent return over the long term. What’s more, if you have an investment horizon of 15, 20, or even 30 years, you have the potential to build a tidy investment pot that could even fuel your early retirement. With that in mind, I’d carry on investing in cheap UK shares today in order to build serious wealth over time.last_img read more

Cheap UK shares: BT and Royal Dutch Shell are big gainers today. Would I buy them now?

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. FTSE 100 shares BT (LSE: BT) and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE:RDSB) are among the biggest gainers today after their earnings releases. The BT share price is up 2.3% and the Royal Dutch Shell share price has risen by 1.5% as I write. These are modest increases compared to the 7.7% increase in the Flutter Entertainment share price, which is today’s biggest gainer. But, this doesn’t take away from BT and RDSB’s increases. Clearly something about their numbers has turned investors positive, which suggests that the gains are driven by their fundamentals. But are these developments enough to sustainably drive share prices up for these FTSE 100 companies? Or are these just a one-off increases, that will die down in the coming days? I think that these questions are most important to assess whether these are good additions to a long-term investment portfolio now. 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…BT sees better earnings, to reinstate dividendBT’s results showed the continued impact of Covid-19 on its performance, which is visible in both its revenue and profits. However, I reckon investors are still positive on the stock because, one, its earnings outlook has improved. It just raised the lower end of its earnings’ range. And two, it’s going to reinstate dividends next year. BT had a huge dividend yield before coronavirus struck, so it’s easy to see why investors are pleased. Its operational performance has improved as well, which could be playing on investors’ minds too.Royal Dutch Shell turns profit, increases dividendThe Royal Dutch Shell share price has also benefited from its dividend announcement. The FTSE 100 oil biggie increased its dividend payout by 4% as it posted a profit in the latest quarter. This would be a relief to shareholders after it cut dividends a few months ago, the first time it did so since the Second World War, according to a report by The Guardian.Should I buy these cheap UK shares?Heartening as the positive dividend changes are, however, I think there are two points to note before buying shares of either company. One, if the share price continues to fall even with an increase in/reinstatement of dividend, the invested capital value gets eroded. It can happen that the decrease in share price is less than the income earned, so on a net basis the investment is still profitable. But I don’t want to take that risk. I would rather put my money in stocks with stable prices that also earn an income. Even if the dividend yield is low, that is still preferable in these unpredictable times. In regular times, neither BT nor RDSB would look as risky as they do now. But in keeping with the current scenario, I’d wait for evidence of sustained share price uptick from the stocks before buying and/or increasing my holdings.

Investing money in UK shares could produce a relatively high passive income over the long run. Certainly, there is an ongoing threat of a second stock market crash. However, the high yields and long-term growth potential offered by FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares could mean that they produce an impressive income return compared to other mainstream assets.By opening a tax-efficient account such as an ISA, buying financially-sound dividend shares and diversifying across a wide range of businesses, an investor could maximise their income from UK shares.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…Opening a Stocks and Shares ISAA Stocks and Shares ISA offers a simple and cost-effective means of making a passive income from UK shares. An ISA can be opened online in a matter of minutes. Doing so is often without any initial cost in many cases, while annual management fees are similar to the cost of a single trade. Therefore, they are accessible to smaller investors.An ISA provides income investors with significant flexibility. Withdrawals can be made at any time without penalty. This means that, unlike with a SIPP, capital invested in an ISA can be used in case of emergency. This may make them particularly attractive to individuals who may need access to their funds at some point prior to retirement.ISAs also offer a tax-efficient means of generating a passive income. This may not sound relevant to some investors who may not yet pay tax on dividends or capital gains. However, over a lifetime, capital gains and dividends can add up. Therefore, ensuring that any investment is not subject to tax could lead to a larger portfolio and a more generous passive income.Buying UK shares to make a passive incomeIt is tempting to simply purchase the highest-yielding UK shares to make a passive income. However, this may not be an effective means of generating a sustainable long-term income. For example, high dividend yields may be unaffordable – especially in the current economic climate. Therefore, investing money in financially sound businesses with lower and more reliable yields could be a more prudent approach.Assessing a company’s financial strength can be done through analysing its balance sheet. Low debt levels signal a solid financial position. Meanwhile, an affordable dividend, assessed through a company’s dividend cover, may suggest that its shareholder payouts are affordable and unlikely to be cut.Diversifying among UK sharesOf course, buying UK shares for a passive income is a relatively risky strategy. Other assets such as cash and bonds offer less risk of loss.However, an investor can reduce their overall risk through buying a diverse range of companies. This cuts their dependency on a small number of companies and sectors so that they can enjoy a more resilient and robust income that has a higher chance of growing over the long run. 3 simple steps I’d take today to make a passive income with UK shares See all posts by Peter Stephens 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.

Warren Buffett and Terry Smith have excellent track records at outperforming the stock market over a long time period. Their investment styles are focused on the quality of a company, rather than seeking to predict economic growth or try and second-guess investor sentiment.This strategy could be a sound starting point for investors who are seeking to find the best UK shares to buy today. It may enable them to cut through the political and economic challenges faced right now to prosper from a likely stock market rally in 2021 and beyond.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…Warren Buffett and Terry Smith’s focus on qualityWarren Buffett and Terry Smith have historically sought to buy companies that have a competitive advantage over their peers. For example, a business may have a unique product that cannot be easily replicated, or it may have a high degree of customer loyalty that allows greater margins than its peers.While identifying a competitive advantage is naturally very subjective, figures such as a company’s return on equity or return on invested capital provide evidence of its wide economic moat. There are many variations of such formulas, but essentially they provide an investor with guidance on how much ‘bang for their buck’ a company provides.Focusing on fundamentals to find the best UK shares to buy nowBusinesses with long track records of high and consistent returns on capital are likely to pique the interest of Warren Buffett and Terry Smith. Unlike other investors, however, they do not pay too much attention to the economic outlook. In fact, Buffett has historically preferred to invest when the economic outlook is weak, while Smith seems to place little emphasis on economic forecasts.As such, they seem content to buy companies with competitive advantages, whatever the economic outlook. This could mean that the best UK shares to buy now are those businesses with substantial competitive advantages, but that trade on relatively attractive valuations because of an uncertain economic outlook. They may be able to generate impressive returns in a likely long-term stock market recovery.Diversification to reduce riskWarren Buffett and Terry Smith have historically run relatively concentrated portfolios. While this means they only invest in their best ideas, it can lead to relatively high volatility.As such, investors may wish to ensure they build a diverse portfolio of UK shares that includes companies operating in a variety of sectors and regions. This may help to reduce overall risks in what could prove to be a challenging economic and political environment in 2021. It may also lead to more impressive returns, since an investor can gain exposure to a range of businesses that may benefit from a likely stock market recovery after the 2020 stock market crash.

Dividends: I’d buy these 2 fat FTSE 100 payouts for a passive income of 9% a year!

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The relentless rise of asset prices since the global financial crisis of 2007–09 has given one group of investors a huge headache. With interest rates near zero or even negative and with asset values through the roof, income yields have collapsed. Today, it’s impossible to earn a decent yearly income or yield without taking risks. This ‘financial repression’ driving investors to buy risk assets has an acronym. TINA — There Is No Alternative — to buying shares for higher dividends.For a high passive income, grab big dividendsYearly interest from ultra-safe savings accounts and high-quality government bonds runs at 1% or less. In the Eighties and Nineties, you could get 10% a year from these assets, but never again. Instead, I’d seize the chunky cash dividends on offer from the FTSE 100‘s biggest payers.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…Check out these two fat cash payoutsWith the FTSE 100 off to a great start to 2021, the index’s dividend yield has declined to 3.1% a year. That’s a multiple of the income yield from safe assets, but I can do much, much better. I calculate that 30 FTSE 100 members offer dividend yields above that of the wider index. Right now, the Footsie includes a dozen companies paying cash dividends of 5%+ a year. Here are two of the highest dividend yields on offer from blue-chip companies today.M&G pays 9% a yearInvestment manager M&G (LSE: MNG) was spun out of its parent company Prudential on 21 October 2019. Its shares then suffered the roughest of rough rides in 2020, crashing as low as 84.12p on 18 March. As I write, they trade at just over 199p, valuing the group at £5.2bn. I’ve written about M&G multiple times and, on 30 September, I said its shares were a real bargain below 160p. Even after climbing by a quarter (25%) in three months, M&G shares still offer a massive dividend yield.At today’s price below £2, M&G shares offer a bumper dividend yield of 9% a year. Yet M&G is a safe, solid, and even boring UK and European asset manager in rising stock markets. What’s more, the group plans to generate excess capital of £2.2bn over three years. Most of this will end up in M&G’s shareholders’ pockets. That’s why I see M&G as a compelling buy today for an income-oriented portfolio.Imperial Brands pays an 8.4% yearly dividendImperial Brands (LSE: IMB) is the world’s fourth-largest manufacturer of cigarettes and tobacco. Clearly, this dividend share is not for ethical or socially conscious investors. But Imps (as it’s known in the City) has a long pedigree and generates huge cash flows from sales worldwide. Bristol-based Imperial is 120 years old, employs 32,500 people, has 38 factories across the globe, and sells 330bn cigarettes a year in more than 160 countries. It also had a decent 2020, as cigarette sales rose during lockdowns.In September 2016, Imperial’s share price peaked at over £41. As I write, it trades around 1,636p, valuing this business at £15.5bn. Today, Imperial’s dividend is a whopping 8.4% a year, the third-highest in the FTSE 100. And that’s after being cut by a third on 19 May last year. With a quarterly pay-out of 2.1% in cash, Imperial is a core holding for generating passive income. That’s why I’d happily buy this dividend dynamo today, ideally inside my ISA for tax-free returns! Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img The ITV (LSE: ITV) share price rose 40% in the past three months. I believe that the positive trading update in November and the start of vaccinations for Covid-19 drove these stellar returns. ITV stock fundamentalsITV’s revenue grew at a compounded annual growth rate of 2.8% from 2017 to 2019. 2019 revenue was £3.3bn. Revenue for the nine months ended 30 September 2020 fell 16% year-on-year to £1.86bn. The drop in revenue was primarily due to the negative impact from the Covid-19. There is some positive news as the management mentioned that advertising trends are improving with Q4 forecast to be slightly up year-on-year. Also, 85% of the company’s productions in the UK and internationally that was paused due to Covid-19 were back in production or have been delivered.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…It has two revenue segments: ITV Studios creates and produces content in the UK and internationally across 13 countries. Year-to-date nine months revenue fell by 19% year-on-year to £902m. The second segment, Broadcast, operates free-to-air commercial channels in the UK and delivers the content through linear television broadcasting and on-demand via the ITV Hub. Year-to-date nine months revenue fell by 13% year-on-year to £1.3bn. I looked into a couple of key performance indicators and think they are satisfactory. ITV total viewing hours increased by 2% year-on-year to 12.2bn and ITV Hub registered user accounts increased by 7% year-on-year to 32.1m. The company has a stable balance sheet. It had a net debt of £775m, as of 30 September 2020.ITV content updateThe ITV Hub achieved strong performance in the festive period between 21 December and 3 January, which grew 11% year-on-year. For the entire month of December, it had 81m programme streams, an increase of 5% year-on-year. With a total of 6.9m streams, Coronation Street was the most popular programme on the ITV Hub over Christmas. The return of The Masked Singer was also positive as it hit 0.5m streams on the ITV Hub. The company has secured a deal to bring The Masked Dancer to the UK, which was originated and successful in America. Good Morning Britain also got a very good viewership in December.The trend continued in the month of January as the ITV Hub exceeded the targets for January 2021 for both consumption hours and monthly active users. The Bay is currently the ITV Hub’s most popular show across the month with 7m streams.I am a bit worried that the company might lose some advertising revenues due to the negative impact from Covid-19. The recent national lockdown might also have impacted the company’s production in the fourth quarter.  The company is a new player in streaming services and has to face competition from Amazon, Disney, and Netflix.ITV stock is currently trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of 14.59. The company is innovative and has been able to attract the younger generation’s viewership. I’ll keep ITV stock on my watchlist as I would like to wait for more details on the impact of Covid-19 on the company’s operations.  Should I buy ITV stock today?

Here’s how I’d react. The biggest shareholder in Natwest (LSE: NWG) is the UK government. After bailing out RBS as it then was in the financial crisis, the state has been the majority shareholder ever since. With the Natwest share price adding 72% over the past year, a lot of investors feel the shares have positive momentum.But the bank said it was buying around 5% of all its shares back from the government. That netted the government around £1.1bn. The investment was a strategic one in the first place, but nonetheless the government lost around £1.8bn on the sale compared to its original purchase price.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…Here’s why this happened and what I think it means for the Natwest share price.A reluctant holderThe government was never keen to be a Natwest shareholder. Its investment was a form of support when the bank was in crisis more than a decade ago. Since then it has repeatedly said it would seek to reduce its stake over time. This was the third such sale to cut the stake. More are planned, with the entire position expected to unwind in the next five years.As an investor I don’t like getting back less than I put into an investment. But sometimes one decides to cut one’s losses, for example, because there is a big bill due. Public finances have been severely challenged by the pandemic. Raising money by selling shares at a loss is a tactic used by governments who need money, not just private investors.The last time the government sold the bank’s shares, in 2018, the Natwest share price was higher than it is now. So while there has been strong positive momentum in the share price, maybe spending more time holding on for further recovery didn’t appeal to the government.Impact for the Natwest share priceI think this news is actually positive overall for the Natwest share price.First, a reduced government shareholding can also be seen as a vote of confidence in the bank’s management. The government invested when the bank was at risk of collapsing. Selling down the position suggests that the state is now more comfortable with Natwest’s ability to fund and run itself than it was at the time of the last financial crisis.Secondly, Natwest plans to cancel 390m of the shares it bought back. That is about 3% of its total share float. I see this as positive for the Natwest share price. Fewer shares in circulation means higher earnings per share even if total earnings remain flat.I’d consider buying NatwestI’d think about buying Natwest shares for my own portfolio. This latest news makes them more attractive to me. It should be positive for earnings per share. However, the share purchase will cost the bank money and will add a little more pressure on the balance sheet.Bank dividends are still limited by regulators, but the reinstated dividend means the share yields 1.5%. However, further shocks to the banking system such as pandemic arrears or joblessness could bite into future profits.Despite its strong run over the past year, I continue to see value in the Natwest share price. While the government is slowly selling over time, I would consider buying.

Alan Oscroft | Friday, 21st May, 2021 | More on: TRN FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Shares in online rail ticker seller Trainline (LSE: TRN) steadied on Friday, down just 1%, at the time of writing. That’s a big improvement on Thursday’s trading, which pummelled the Trainline share price into a 23% fall. So what happened?It’s all down to the publication of the ‘Williams-Shapps plan for rail’, to give it its proper name. The idea is to improve the UK’s rail transport system. As a rail traveler (pandemic permitting), the ambition gets a thumbs-up from me, although I won’t be convinced until I see it happen. But it’s being touted as the biggest UK railways shake-up in decades.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…What’s this got to do with Trainline? Well, the plan will create a new national rail body, Great British Railways (GBR). And GBR will have its own ticket-selling platform. The fear, then, is that the Trainline service will be harmed, or perhaps even become redundant.I previously thought the Trainline share price had a defensive nature, in the shape of the company’s well-developed system and infrastructure. But a new public body doesn’t need to worry about the costs of setting up a competing service. Or about being efficient, or making profits to please its shareholders.The end of the line?Even today, there are numerous different ways to buy train tickets. And that’s the beauty of Trainline. Instead of a patchwork of ticket sellers, travellers get a joined-up system that works well and is easy to use. I know, because I’ve used it, and it’s become my first choice every time.To beat Trainline, GBR is going to have to do the same. So that’s a public sector organisation, offering a well-organised and customer-focused service, that’s as consumer friendly as Trainline? Maybe the Trainline share price isn’t under such a great threat after all.How will GBR go about it? If it put me in charge of the new operation, I’d be tempted to franchise it out to Trainline. I doubt that’ll actually happen. But I do think it could be wise of GBR to find some way to use Trainline’s systems. It would surely be a lot more efficient than starting again from scratch.So, do I sound bullish over the Trainline share price? Actually, I’m not. This is all just upbeat speculation, and I certainly won’t base any investment decisions on it. Right now, it’s all about profit and valuation.Trainline share price valuationIt would be unfair to make valuation judgments based on the company’s 2020-21 results, hammered by the pandemic. The year saw a 79% slump in sales, resulting in an operating loss of £100m. But Trainline’s 2019-20 results had only shown a meagre £2m operating profit. That’s from £261m in revenue, and a pretty thin margin.Adjusted EPS that year came in at 8.1p. On today’s Trainline share price, that’s a P/E of 39, and that’s after the shock share price crash. Prior to this GBR thing, Trainline shares were on a trailing P/E of 53 (again, based on 2019-20 earnings). That’s a hefty growth valuation, and I don’t see where the growth is going to come from. Especially not now. The Trainline share price steadies after Thursday’s 20% crash.

The Mitie share price is rising today: should I buy now?

first_img See all posts by Roland Head Shares in FTSE 250 outsourcing specialist Mitie Group (LSE: MTO) are up by 8%, as I write, after the company said results this year should be better than expected. The Mitie share price has now risen by 80% over the last year — but I think there could be further to go.Mitie has had some problems in recent years, but the latest numbers from the company suggest to me that CEO Phil Bentley may have pulled off a genuine turnaround. Should I consider buying the shares for my portfolio?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…Better than expectedMitie’s cleaners, security guards and maintenance teams remained in demand last year. Customer sites such as hospitals, supermarkets and factories mostly stayed open, supporting steady trading.The firm’s numbers show the benefit of Mitie’s exposure to these essential sectors. Underlying revenue fell by just 1.6% to £2,139m last year. However, the mix of work carried out by the company changed.Mitie carried out more cleaning and security work last year, but fewer technical projects. As a result, the group’s adjusted pre-tax profit fell by 34% to £46m. Even so, today’s results are well ahead of broker forecasts I’ve seen for a pre-tax profit of £40.9m.I think this is a decent result, especially as Bentley now says that results for the current financial year should be “materially ahead of our prior expectations.” This explains why Mitie’s share price is rising today.What’s it worth?The stock market always tries to look ahead and price-in companies’ expected future performance. In Mitie’s case, forecasts before today suggested the company would generate earnings of 4.9p per share in the current financial year. I reckon this can be upgraded to at least 5.4p per share now, based on today’s management guidance.My upgraded forecast prices Mitie shares on about 14 times forecast earnings. That doesn’t seem too expensive to me at this time. I also believe there are some reasons to think the quality of this business is improving. A £190m rights issue last year has helped to reduce Mitie’s net debt to much safer levels, so future finance costs should be lower.Meanwhile, the company says it expects an increase in more profitable project work as office buildings are reoccupied.Mitie share price: should I buy?I think Mitie’s growing focus on areas such as security technology and renewable energy installations should help to improve its profitability.But the reality is that the company is still heavily dependent on large, low-margin contracts which require many employees to deliver. Mitie now employs 75,000 people, following the acquisition of former rival Interserve.Recent history tells us that outsourcers can suffer big losses when contracts don’t go to plan. Although I think Mitie’s share price could continue to rise from current levels, I don’t think this business deserves a premium rating.In my view, Mitie shares are probably priced fairly at current levels.

Wasps up for Firhill Challenge

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Tony Hanks – Wasps Director of RugbyLondon Wasps were last in the Heineken Cup knock-out stages back in 2007 – when they went all the way and lifted the trophy for the second time in the space of four tournaments.Now they go into the final two Rounds of Pool matches with 15 points in the bank and just two points adrift of Pool 6 pacesetters Toulouse, the defending champions who have got a record fifth Heineken Cup crown in their sights.Glasgow Warriors at Firhill on Sunday is the first challenge for Wasps and then comes the huge clash of champions at Adams Park when Toulouse and Wasps meet in the climax to the Pool stages.“I look at qualification for the Heineken Cup as the hardest thing,” said Wasps Director of Rugby Tony Hanks. “But once you have done that and are in the tournament the next thing is to get through to the quarter-finals and that was the initial goal we set for ourselves at the start of the season.“What we have achieved so far is to keep ourselves in contention – especially with the back-to-back wins over Newport Gwent Dragons – but we accept we will have to be at our best to get through this weekend and beat a very good Glasgow side away.“And although we did beat them 38-26 in Round 2 at Adams Park, this will be a completely different game. We had a huge point to prove when we played them at our place having just lost to Toulouse as it made that home game really important if we were to make an impact in the group.“They will be a different proposition up there in Glasgow and we know we will be up against a very physical, tough and proud team. I have got an enormous amount of respect for Sean Lineen and Gary Mercer. We accept they will be prepared really well by the coaches and keen to make up for the disappointments they felt after their performance in Adams Park.”“Glasgow are a very hard side to break down – that is all part of their culture and attitude of playing for each other – and they also have some young and talented players like Ruaridh Jackson, Max Evans and Richie Gray while full back Bernardo Stortoni always seems to give us problems.” TAGS: Wasps Wasps have won all three previous tournament meetings with Glasgow and go into the contest in fifth place in the Aviva Premiership.“Before the last rounds of the Heineken Cup it is always pleasing to be well placed in your domestic league and in England it is very tight right across the board, anyone of eight or nine teams vying for the top six places and automatic qualification for the 2011 / 2012 Heineken Cup,” said Hanks.“But now our entire focus is on the Heineken Cup – and everyone knows that no poor teams qualify for the quarter-finals.“Looking back at the earlier matches the opener against Toulouse has to go down as one that got away. We were able to put them under pressure and we managed the conditions really well. To have gone as close as we did against a full strength and very talented Toulouse team was disappointing.“But that has gone and is in the past and we are most certainly not looking beyond Round 5 on Sunday – that would be totally disrespectful to Glasgow.“The first thing for us is go to Glasgow and do the job. “Against the Dragons we would have preferred to play them at Rodney Parade – Cardiff City Stadium was a difficult place to play, it was a bit of an eerie atmosphere – so we were glad to come away with the win and take nine points from the two matches against them.”last_img read more

Six Nations: Vunipola on the best No 8s

first_imgAll eyes on Billy: Vunipola’s rise has been quick but impressive. He has been praised for his work at No 8By Charlie MorganBilly Vunipola’s Test career may be only seven matches old, but the rumbustious No 8 is already a talismanic presence for England. Still just 21, the young Saracen is forging some attractive on-field trademarks – carries that consistently career over the gainline, audacious offloads and crunching tackles to name but three facets of his outstanding all-round game.Two eye-catching performances against France and Scotland to start the current Six Nations have singled him out as a shining light for Stuart Lancaster’s charges. But what does Vunipola think of the peers that share his position for rival sides across the tournament? He gave Rugby World a quick run-down.France – Louis PicamolesGo go gadget score: Louis Picamoles scores for France“Louis is a great player. He’s really tough, both as a carrier and over the ball at the breakdown. In France they call him ‘The Iceberg’ because of how low his centre of gravity is and you can see that in the way he’ll run through two or three people easily.“He did that on a few occasions against us, but as a team we managed to keep him fairly quiet. It just happened that Yannick Nyanga did a lot of running for them instead!“Like Louis, part of my job is to get as many yards as I can. He’s got huge lower limbs and it’s very easy to underestimate how powerful he is through the tackle – I certainly did when I faced him. He just pumps his legs and keeps on going. You’ll try and get hold of him and he’ll just drag you along.”Scotland – Johnnie Beattie “When he came on, Johnnie broke the line a few times and dropped the shoulder on me once – he’s really dynamic. A lot of people were surprised at how early they replaced Dave Denton, but Johnnie’s a seriously good player as well. “Dave is in the Pierre Spies kind of mould – he’s really athletic and tall. He stood out at Murrayfield for the way he ran with the ball against us and got over the gainline. It gave the Scottish crowd something to get behind as well, which is no bad thing.“Work in the back-field has got a lot more important for No 8s because nines and tens are trying to target them and test how solid they are under the high ball. It’s come into the game more recently, which means we have to work on it a lot. It’s a tough job – I never realised how hard it was until I started dropping back to catch so many balls.“Full-backs probably don’t get enough credit for winning those 50-50s. They help us out a lot by talking to us – we’re just a bunch of dummies that run around and they tell us where to go. It’s down to them when the ball comes to us.”A headband apart: Jamie HeaslipIreland – Jamie Heaslip LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “He’s a similar build to Johnnie Beattie and just as skillful as anyone – almost like a back in how agile he is, but hugely powerful too. Jamie’s a real focal point for Ireland. There are a few big figures in that Ireland team. I’m really looking forward to playing against them all.“I remember watching Brian O’Driscoll score that try for the Lions against Australia when I was a kid back in Tonga.  To have a chance to play against those people is crazy. I keep thinking about how lucky I am and how weird it is that I’m in this position. It’s quite funny.”Wales – Taulupe Faletau“Obviously he’s my cousin, so if I get the opportunity to play against him it’ll be really odd – kind of the same as it was playing Mako for Wasps last year. I guess it’s the professional era though, so I’ll just get on with it. In those situations, you have to try extra hard to focus on your own game. You can’t go looking for anyone because it puts you off your game.“Taulupe’s freakishly talented – quick, strong, good under the high ball. I look at him and think how similar he is to Keiran Read, not only in the way he plays, but also in how long his limbs are. When we do meet up, we won’t talk about rugby – definitely not specific games or anything like that. It tends to get too stressful when you talk about that.“Mine and Mako’s handling skills have probably come from the games we used to play as a group of cousins back in Bristol. We’d be down in the park throwing a ball around all the time. We’d even go place-kicking. If you missed you’d have to stand under the posts and punt it back.“It was always good fun and I guess we knew one day we could go further and make something of rugby. It definitely that made us closer, too.”All wrapped up: Italy skipper Sergio ParisseItaly – Sergio Parisse“Lawrence Dallaglio was probably the guy I looked up to, but Sergio has been a brilliant performer for years and his influence as captain is massive for Italy. In everything from his lineout jumping to his step he is world-class and the pundits always rate him as one of the very best. Rightly so, as well – he deserves it.“As he shows, being a number eight is also about bringing other runners into play. (England Under 18 coach) John Fletcher always used to say to us: “Love the rugby ball.” Sometimes that meant even going to bed with it.“That’s helped my off-loading and I’m lucky being with England because we’re always trying to stay ahead of the game. It’s an ambitious group that’s developing well.”center_img Get behind-the-scenes news from Billy Vunipola and his England team-mates with Inside Line, the weekly show from O2 in partnership with England Rugby, at www.O2InsideLine.comlast_img read more

Brian O’Driscoll on Leinster’s European Champions Cup chances

first_imgComeback kids: Leinster made up a large defecit against Glasgow last weekThere will be time to reassess once the season is over, and Brian O’Driscoll is at pains to point out that Leinster still had a good season last time out under new management and that over the last two seasons the side have lost big name leaders like himself, Leo Cullen, Isa Nacewa and Johnny Sexton – although the fly-half will return to the province for the 2015-16 competitions.O’Driscoll says: “The sign of a really good team is when you are able to win when you’re not playing great. The All Blacks have been so great for so many years, because they still manage to see games through when they are off, a lot of the time. With Leinster, there was a change of coach last year, new philosophies, but we still won the league.“It’s ridiculous sometimes how that’s not good enough. Fair enough, we got beaten by the eventual winners of Heineken Cup, as it was – we got beaten very well by Toulon. But it’s very hard to maintain those very, very high standards, year in, year out.” TAGS: HighlightLeinster Brian O’Driscoll believes that anything could happen for his former side in the next round of the European Champions Cup.This weekend Leinster host Bath, Clermont face Northampton Saints, Racing Metro host Saracens and Wasps visit European champions Toulon. On these fixtures O’Driscoll tells Rugby World: “I think that the Leinster game is a very open game that either team could win. Maybe Sarries could win in Racing, but I see the other two (ties) going to the home teams, with Clermont and Toulon winning. Clermont probably won’t win comfortably, but Toulon could do quite well.”However, much has been made of his former club’s domestic form. Leinster haven’t been able to reach the heights of seasons gone by and the ex-centre has not backed them outright against Bath, but he is also unimpressed with the level of doom and gloom around Leinster’s efforts this term.“Leinster’s season has been very up and down,” O’Driscoll admits. “But they were 27-7 down at half-time (against Glasgow Warriors in the last round of the Guinness Pro12) and they came back and probably should have won it. The thing with Leinster is: yes, they’ve been up and down, but they’re fifth in the Pro12 and in the knock-out stages of the Champions Cup.“People are expecting huge things these days. Expectations are unrealistic at times, constantly demanding that high standard. But it’s been okay. They’re still in both competitions.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Glory days: Brian O’Driscoll celebrates European success in 2011 Brian O’Driscoll was talking to Rugby World at the Cathay Pacidfic/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens.

Pyrgos to captain Scotland as Cotter makes ten changes for USA game

first_img Glasgow Warriors scrum-half Henry Pyrgos will captain Scotland against the USA having replaced Greig Laidlaw in the No 9 shirt from the win over Japan on Wednesday.Laidlaw scored 20 of Scotland’s 45 points at his home ground of Kingsholm in their opening game, but with just four days rest before their clash with the USA, coach Vern Cotter has rung the changes.Tim Visser and Sean Maitland replace Tommy Seymour and Sean Lamont on the wings, and with Lamont not on the bench the Warriors’ man will not be able to add to his 98 caps this time out.Cotter changes his entire front row, with Wednesday’s replacements – Ryan Grant, Fraser Brown and Jon Welsh – given the start, while powerhouse Richie Gray replaces his brother Jonny in the second row. >>> Watch: Japan deny Scotland try with last ditch Goromaru tackleAlasdair Strokosch and Josh Strauss come in to the back-row in place of Ryan Wilson and David Denton respectively.

Joel Stransky backs HITZ and the Springboks

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Joel Stransky knows a thing or two about winning the Rugby World Cup and the former South Africa fly-half believes Wales’ quest to do exactly that will end this weekend An injury-depleted Wales side qualified as runners-up in Pool A last week, as Australia held out to top the group leaving England to miss out on the quarter-finals altogether.Next up is a clash with the rejuvenated Springboks, who have flown back into impressive form since their shock defeat at the hands of Japan on the opening weekend.And former Bok fly-half Joel Stransky, whose dramatic drop-goal clinched the World Cup title for South Africa in 2005, believes his countrymen will progress – spurred on by their youthful contingent which include Jesse Kriel, Damien de Allende, Eben Etzebeth and Lood de Jager.“I think it’s going to be tough,” he said. “Wales have shown enormous character and determination in the last few weeks and to have pushed Australia so close – they could have won that game.“But there is a part of me that thinks they have played two massive games and to sustain that type of effort is going to be tough.“South Africa have had a longer rest and they have built some good momentum. They have shown great character to come back from what was a shocking defeat. Good teams don’t become bad teams overnight.“I think they have got better and, most importantly, I think some of the youngsters have come through and done well.“I have no doubt that on the field of play, taking away the experience factor, they are capable of delivering more than the older guys.” “I have a charity in South Africa, the LumoHawk Foundation, and a lot of what we do is around underprivileged children and getting kids off the streets. This is quite similar in many ways in using sport as a conduit. This fits in nicely with that ethos.“It is very rewarding helping kids who had come from difficult backgrounds – it’s inspiring.”center_img Stransky is on the shores for the World Cup and took the time on Thursday to stop in at Allianz Park for a session with Saracens’ award-winning HITZ programme, after an invitation from one of the project’s partners – Barclays.HITZ tackles some of the greatest challenges facing young people today – unemployment, crime and disillusionment – and gives them the skills to get back into education, vocational training, apprenticeships and employment.Joel Stransky dropped in at Allianz Park for a session with Saracens’ award-winning HITZ programmeDelivered nationally by Premiership Rugby and funded by partners Barclays, Comic Relief, Land Rover and Wooden Spoon, HITZ uses rugby to increase young people’s resilience, self-reliance and confidence.And Stransky, who watched the 16-to-18-year-old students take part in a rugby session before answering their questions, clearly enjoyed the outing.“I have been chatting to some of the kids and talking to them about some of the lessons sport can teach you about life,” he added.

Michael Cheika salutes Australia’s blend of ‘jokers, fighters and lovers’

first_img Australia coach Michael Cheika has heaped praise on his Australian team ahead of their World Cup final clash against New Zealand. The Wallabies will compete against their old foes at Twickenham on Saturday, with the winner being recognised as the most successful nation in the competition’s history, having each triumphed on two previous occasions.Cheika’s man-management skills have been instrumental over these past 12 months. He inherited a squad in a state of unrest after a rift had opened up between players and management. This weekend the fruits of Australia’s hard work could be rewarded with a third Webb Ellis Cup.Cheika feels that the Wallabies’ rich political and ethnic diversity has contributed to his team’s success. The squad has many ethnic lineages as different as Zimbabwe, Ireland, Papua New Guinea, Tonga, Fiji and Lebanon; and Cheika believes this mix of personalities is beneficial.He said: “We have got a team of real diversity. People who have come from different lands and origins, and there are also some very different characters there,“I won’t say we’ve got anyone on the extreme right in the way we think, but we’ve got the extreme left and centre right. We’ve got the jokers, the lovers, the fighters.“One of the big things for us has been growing up off the field. I really like to have lots of different characters in teams, people who think differently about everything.”Captain Stephen Moore echoes his manager’s view and sheds light on some of the team’s biggest personalities and even reveals one of David Pocock’s television favourites. “He’s always joking and looking at the lighter side of things and I think that really balances everyone out. There are guys who are pretty serious, me being one of those, and then people like David, who are really different.“We have different guys who bring different things from all different areas and that’s what makes this team environment special.” Cheika hails his team’s diversity ahead of their fourth final Express yourself: Michael Cheika praises his team’s character and rich diversity.

Eddie Jones names an England squad that hints at chaos-by-design

The 37-strong group, who will meet in Brighton between 2 and 4 October, includes Sam Jones, Dan Robson and Nathan Hughes from Wasps, Mike Williams from Leicester, Joe Marchant from Harlequins and Ben Te’o from Worcester.However, just as noteworthy is the short-term call-ups for the camp. Ben Morgan earns a recall as a replacement for the injured Jack Clifford, while Teimana Harrison is named in the training squad, despite neither being in the EPS. The move may put Harrison in contention for an openside berth, as he replaces the injured James Haskell, with several new options at No 7. Wing Marland Yarde is in a similar boat, having not been named in the EPS 45, but being named in the training squad, as a replacement for Jonny May.Short stint? Teimana Harrison in in the 37-man England squadAlthough some will see Sarries fly-half Alex Lozowski’s inclusion in the EPS a major talking point as Wasps’ Danny Cipriani is missed out yet again, the area of greatest intrigue must be with the back row. However, Harrison may not be assured of anything.In naming his squads, Eddie Jones made clear his vision for a back row: “We’re pretty happy with Chris (Robshaw) at six. We see the six being a high work-rate player. The way we see the team at the moment – and I stress, at the moment – a big ball-running No 8 – like Billy Vunipola or Nathan Hughes – and a high work-rate six like Robshaw. At seven we’re looking for a disruptive, defensive player. Not a traditional No 7 because at the moment we don’t have that in England. We went down that route of trying to find someone, but in reality it wasn’t successful. We’re looking for a destructive player like a Haskell – Sam Jones and Mike Williams come into that category.”With no mention of Harrison there, his selection alongside Morgan and Yarde in the training squad may offer the promise of some Test inclusion, but perhaps no long-term involvement. So while there is disappointment for players like Tom Youngs, Keiran Brookes, Dave Attwood, Luther Burrell and Joe Simpson, as well as Cipriani, the question remains whether Jones is biding his time waiting for an injury list to clear, or whether a “destructive” force like Williams is the only long-term option for England on the openside.With Jones also insisting some extra training will be done with the group on grappling in the tackle area, working with names from the world of judo in Wolverhampton, chaos-by-design may be Jones’s defensive scheme for the autumn at least.Jones also announced that Rory Teague will come on board in November as a part-time skills coach. Under-20 backs and attack coach Teague was part of the management team who helped guide England to the title at the Junior World Rugby Championship in June.37 players attending Brighton training camp from 2-4 OctoberForwardsJosh Beaumont (Sale)Dan Cole (Leicester)Jamie George (Saracens)Teimana Harrison (Northampton) *injury replacement for James Haskell (Wasps) Dylan Hartley (Northampton)James Haskell (Wasps)Paul Hill (Northampton)Nathan Hughes (Wasps)Maro Itoje (Saracens)Sam Jones (Wasps)George Kruis (Saracens)Joe Launchbury (Wasps)Courtney Lawes (Northampton)Joe Marler (Harlequins)Ben Morgan (Gloucester) *injury replacement for Jack Clifford (Harlequins)

Six Nations tweets of the week: Bastareaud, Huw Jones and Calcutta Cup celebtrations

first_imgChris Farrell, on his Six Nations debut for Ireland, was named Man of the Match for his impressive display. Here’s what he had to say: The man himself didn’t post anything on Twitter until the following day, no doubt enjoying the celebrations. This is what he said when he did reappear on social media: Grandslam dreams are still alive!!!— jamie heaslip (@jamieheaslip) February 24, 2018 The French couldn’t finish their dinner. Well Bastareaud could….. #FRAITA #FRAvITA #SixNations— Crossy (@crossy33) February 23, 2018One highlight was the performance of Mathieu Bastareaud. Back after a three-week ban and perhaps with a point to prove, Italy found him impossible to handle in the midfield. He was described as a beast, a bulldozer and a “big Bastareaud”. Injured Leinster and Ireland No 8 Jamie Heaslip, who has since announced his retirement, was excited by the prospect of a clean sweep with the victory over Wales, saying: Bastareaud beat seven defenders against Italy, more than anyone else on either team: Winger Simon Zebo is also backing Ireland to win a Grand Slam: Getting Mathieu Bastareaud down is no easy feat…Watch on @BBCOne https://t.co/15VAVTscjz#SixNations #bbcsixnations #FRAvITA pic.twitter.com/GORtIsVuvr— BBC Rugby Union (@bbcrugbyunion) February 23, 2018In the second match of the weekend, Ireland kept their Six Nations Grand Slam dream alive with a hard-fought win over Wales.The excitement in Dublin went all the way to the final whistle. In the last play of the match, with Wales still within one score, Stockdale plucked a superb interception and ran in for his second try to seal the win for Ireland. A battering ram: Stormtroopers were better at shooting Han Solo than France are at finishing tries. Bloody hell.#FRAITA— Michael Fogarty (@foggy_9) February 23, 2018 The final match of the weekend saw Scotland win their first Calcutta Cup in a decade, inflicting the worst loss of Eddie Jones’s England career and shattering the team’s Grand Slam hopes in the process.Finn Russell answered his critics with a fine performance and this pass to Huw Jones which set up Sean Maitland’s try was just sublime: We’ve rounded up the best of social media from the third round of the 2018 Six Nations And Scottish hero William Wallace: France created plenty of chances, but their finishing left a lot to be desired: The recipient of that pass, Huw Jones, was another standout performer contributing two tries.

How England selection is shaping up after the autumn series

first_imgThe new caps stood up, the results were good. Now, with just the Six Nations to come before the World Cup warm-ups, Eddie Jones has to decide on his best England team To the chagrin of many, Danny Cipriani is set to miss out. He’s been brilliant this season, and was brilliant last season, but if Jones was going to include him in his plans the Gloucester fly-half would surely have featured this autumn. Do you agree or see it differently? Who would be in your starting team? Let us know by emailing [email protected] with your views.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS How England selection is shaping up after the autumn seriesNine Tests now separate England from their opening RWC 2019 match against Tonga in Sapporo, the Six Nations championship being followed by four World Cup warm-ups. Nine opportunities to nail down selection for the big one.It looks monumentally difficult. In previous jobs as head coach of Japan and Australia, Eddie Jones never had such depth to choose from. In Japan, he asked foreign players to show the way when, soon after he started, the country’s U20s got crushed 125-0 by Wales.With England, he can draw on one of the world’s most powerful player pools – but what has he learnt from the four-match Quilter International Series?Three wins and a one-point defeat to New Zealand represents satisfying progress after the trials of the five-match losing streak earlier in the year.Jump to it: Pete Samu goes airborne as he tries to halt Mark Wilson at Twickenham (Getty Images)Asked for an overview of 2018 after the 37-18 defeat of Australia, Jones said: “We had a tough Six Nations. We got a ton of things wrong and needed to regroup. I thought in South Africa (in June) we did that.“Not in terms of winning the series but in terms of the togetherness of the team and how we want to play rugby and go forward. This (November) series was just another step forward.”We look at the squad, unit by unit, to assess how the land lies ten months out from the World Cup in Japan…BACK THREESomeone is going to be left seriously disappointed players here, such are the riches available.Elliot Daly has had seven successive starts at full-back but remains unconvincing, despite his searing pace and power off the kicking tee. Mike Brown may return or Anthony Watson – full-back at the end of this year’s Six Nations – could slot back in, once he has recovered from a torn Achilles tendon.Almost certainly, the best man for the job is Alex Goode, who was on duty at Twickenham at the weekend as a summariser over the PA system (he predicted a 32-24 England win). But as we’ve said before, he simply doesn’t appeal to Jones.center_img Upward curve: England line up for the national anthem ahead of the 37-18 win against Australia (Getty) Daly and Watson can both play wing, of course, where Jonny May’s strike rate (18 tries in 40 Tests) should make him an automatic choice.Chris Ashton (20 in 42) has barely been seen this month because of injury but one suspects he will prove too good to leave out on the other flank.Joe Cokanasiga may be 21 and with only two caps to his name, but his brute power gives England a different option and he has a great chance of going to the World Cup. And then there’s Jack Nowell, another physical player and a British Lion to boot.Even if we ignore Brown and his 72 caps’ worth of experience, that’s six players who deserve to go to Japan. Jones will probably only have room for five.No ordinary Joe: Cokanasiga has made an immediate impact and gives England power out wide (Getty)MIDFIELDMore headaches. Henry Slade has been the 13 since the summer tour onwards, and has looked increasingly at home. But Jonathan Joseph had the shirt in the Six Nations, only losing his spot because of ankle surgery in April.So it’s anyone’s guess whether Slade or Joseph is front of the queue, or indeed whether Daly would still be considered there – he wore 13 against the Springboks in 2016.Ben Te’o and the fit-again Manu Tuilagi, fresh from his first England minutes for more than two years, offer muscle and directness, but is there room for both at the World Cup?The Ford-Farrell axis that started the year so beautifully in Rome is possibly a thing of the past, in terms of starting positions. We must assume that Farrell will steer the ship from ten.Alex Lozowski, playing 12, didn’t do himself any favours against Japan but is versatile – he played his first pro game as a winger on Sunday, at Leicester, and was excellent. Unfortunately, the experiment of playing Nowell at 13 against the Brave Blossoms was aborted early because Ashton’s injury forced the Exeter player back out to the wing.Regarding Henry: Slade has been solid at 13 and could be a back-up fly-half if needed at Japan 2019HALF-BACKSThis looks a little easier. Farrell and Ford are the fly-halves while Ben Youngs, Richard Wigglesworth and Danny Care are set to be the No 9s, it being conventional to take three scrum-halves to a tournament.It’s tough on Wasps’ Dan Robson, consistently outstanding over the past two or three seasons, but even at 35 Wigglesworth has shown he has a spring in his step. Six of his 33 caps have come off the bench this year. FRONT ROWSignificantly, when asked about the pluses of the Quilter Series, Jones began by name-checking new cap Ben Moon and his Chiefs team-mate Alec Hepburn.Jones knows that Joe Marler’s shock retirement has depleted the loosehead cupboard. Mako Vunipola is a shoo-in once he returns from a calf injury and one suspects the aggressive Ellis Genge will nudge ahead of Moon once back from a shoulder injury.Tighthead is arguably the single biggest concern for England, with Dan Cole, 31, currently deemed surplus to requirements after eight years and 85 Tests’ worth of sterling service.Cole is shining at the moment for Leicester Tigers so he could yet feature in Japan. More likely, however, is that Kyle Sinckler and Harry Williams will share the No 3 shirt.Get well soon: Mako and Billy Vunipola look on after being injured in Saracens’ win at GlasgowThe England boss was beaming Kyle Sinckler’s Man of the Match performance against Australia. “He scrummed magnificently. Whoever picked Man of the Match (Sky Sports) today deserves a pat on the back,” he said.As things stand, Vunipola is the only prop from England’s RWC 2015 squad set to make it to Japan.At hooker, Dylan Hartley and Jamie George are the only show in town. Jones’s failure to give more game time to a third hooker, who will be needed within a 31-man World Cup squad, is one of the biggest oversights of his reign.It probably doesn’t matter too much who starts and who finishes, although Hartley’s throwing looks the stronger of the two. However, a third hooker, probably Luke Cowan-Dickie, needs to be involved at some point. The Exeter man has acquired six caps under Jones, all of them off the bench.Game time needed: if Luke Cowan-Dickie is to be England’s third hooker, let’s see him play (Getty Images)SECOND ROWEngland had three locks on the 2017 Lions tour and most observers felt it was a travesty that a fourth, Joe Launchbury, didn’t join them.Launchbury, presently sidelined with a knee injury, George Kruis and Courtney Lawes all played at England 2015, so if you add in the new wonder that is Maro Itoje you have your lock quartet. The fly in the ointment, so to speak, is Bath’s Charlie Ewels, who’s won a sizeable ten caps under Jones and is happy running a lineout.Is it possible to take five locks and count Itoje as a lock-flanker hybrid? Would it be nonsensical to ever play Itoje as a six when he is England’s best second-row?That is a big question to answer but logic decrees that Itoje must stay put at four and that Ewels will just have to be on standby for Japan.Men in possession: Maro Itoje and Courtney Lawes are part of a formidable array of English second-rowsBACK ROWAnd so to the endless conundrum that is the back row. No 8 Billy Vunipola has to start when available because there is no carrier like him, but his succession of shoulder, knee and arm injuries will be causing consternation at HQ.Squad regulars Nathan Hughes, Chris Robshaw and Sam Simmonds missed all or most of the autumn series, but in their absence others stepped up to the plate magnificently.Mark Wilson gave England the ‘dog’ associated with Robshaw, Jones saying: “He’s a good tough player. Gives everything he’s got, rolls his sleeves up, not afraid to put his head in dark places. Excellent player.”Wilson can play right across the back row, a valuable commodity for a World Cup. Tom Curry was very good at seven until an ankle injury halted his involvement, and Sam Underhill has been even better, adding low-slung, ball-carrying power to his savage tackling.Box seat: Sam Underhill has a big-game mentality and has edged ahead of Tom Curry at seven (Getty)Quins’ Jack Clifford, who won ten caps from 2016-17, could yet emerge as an option if he can finally get an injury-free run of games going. He is a fine lineout operator and were Vunipola and Underhill to play at eight and seven, the six would need to have that in his armoury.Brad Shields, the incumbent blindside, is being used by England in a lineout that is arguably too dependent on Itoje. The Wasps player is improving with every game and looks set to make Japan 2019.Saracens’ Michael Rhodes is foremost among those who could yet change that picture, and Rugby World is also a huge Don Armand fan. But with a maximum of six back-row places available, and perhaps only five, this is going to be one big dog-fight over the coming months.Here’s how an England XV might look at next year’s World Cup: A Watson; C Ashton, H Slade, M Tuilagi, J May; O Farrell (co-capt), B Youngs; M Vunipola, D Hartley (co-capt), K Sinckler, M Itoje, C Lawes, M Wilson, S Underhill, B Vunipola.Replacements: 16 Jamie George, 17 Ellis Genge, 18 Harry Williams, 19 Joe Launchbury, 20 Nathan Hughes, 21 Danny Care, 22 George Ford, 23 Elliot Daly.last_img read more

New Zealand church to debate nature of marriage

first_img Course Director Jerusalem, Israel By Taonga staffPosted Jul 11, 2012 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Anglican Communion The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Submit a Job Listing An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Press Release Service [Anglican Taonga] Church: We Need to Talk About Marriage.That’s what the General Synod decided in Fiji this afternoon.Without dissent, and after a debate that at times included displays of raw emotion, the synod passed a resolution that “asks Episcopal Units to hold conversations in our church and with the wider community about the nature of marriage.”It’s clear that the mover of the resolution, the Rev Glynn Cardy, of St Matthew-in-the-City, in Auckland, hopes this will lead, eventually, to the possibility of gay and lesbian couples getting married in Anglican churches.The resolution includes the request that dioceses and hui amorangi “explore how the Church might theologically and liturgically respond to gay and lesbian Anglican couples who request this rite.”Much of Glynn’s speech turned on his claim that “marriage in the Bible is not restricted to one man and one woman – or in fact to any one model.”He quoted a number of examples, from both testaments, as proof that “the Biblical models for marriage include a range of relationships and combinations, and these evolve with the culture.”Glynn pointed, for example, to Peter who commended “the holy women” of former times – including Sarah, who obeyed Abraham, calling him Lord (1 Peter 3: 5-6).“Since this is the biblical model to which Peter turns, we might benefit from looking at it ourselves.“Sarah was Abraham’s half-sister (Genesis 20:12).‘Well, that’s not the point’, one might say.“Exactly: who the two parties were in relation to one another was not Peter’s point.”He claimed, finally, that “heterosexuals do not have a monopoly on Christ-like love, on the love we hold up as an ideal in matrimony. So, we need to have a korero about this.”Synod members queued up at the microphones to affirm the motion – and none was more moving that Bishop Apimeleki Qiliho.He and his wife are caregivers to victims of HIV/AIDS, and Bishop Api is also the chairperson of Fiji’s AIDS association.And his voice cracked, and he had to pause and regather himself as he talked about how people living with HIV/AIDs felt rejected by the church.“This is not theology. This is not liturgy. This is humanity we are talking about… and this is what hurts me the most.”But even some of those in the Synod who are not normally seen as standard bearers for gay rights welcomed a back-to-first-principles look at the Church’s involvement in marriage.Mr Fei Tevi, from the Diocese of Polynesia, was one of those.““I’m not giving you an opinion,” he said. “But I support this, because it provides us with a process, and a way forward to discuss issues of great importance to us as a church.Bishop Kelvin Wright recalled the days of his curacy at St Mary’sMerivale. Not a Saturday would pass without two weddings being held in the church.But society had drastically changed since then. Christendom was dying, and the church was not longer “the moral wing of the Empire.”“I can’t remember the last time I had a couple come for marriage who had different addresses.“We are still in the wedding business – but confused about it.“What are we doing here? We need to have a look again at what marriage is.”So everyone, it seems, was willing for the church to begin this conversation.But a number suggested lines in the sand that they would not cross.Archdeacon Tim Mora, of Greymouth, took issue with Glynn Cardy’s exegesis.“Let’s have a deeper reading of the texts,” he said, “and see what they really say.”The Rev Dr Andrew Burgess, of Nelson, said he hoped that the discussion would not “remain around the issue of same gender sexuality.”But it’s clear, too, from his remarks that liberal theologians don’t have a monopoly on compassion where sexuality is concerned.“I’m profoundly aware of pain.“Just pain. It’s enormously painful.”“People do matter, people matter enormously.At times, he said, “every single one of us is caught up on a most challenging, painful, exceptionally difficult journey – with a God who does not let us go.To talk deeply about being human is necessary – but the talk can’t stop there, he said.Experience is not simply experience, beyond any questioning or interpretation.“The experience of pain is real, but how I understand that pain can change.“To do theology is to locate our experience in the story of God, the God who is with us, around us, within us – but also against us.”To read the full text of the resolution, click here.

Anglicans take a stand for nuclear truth in Japan

first_img Rector Belleville, IL Featured Events Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ [Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Church in Japan/Nippon Sei Ko Kai (NSKK) has launched the second phase of its Isshoni Aruko (Let Us Walk Together) project, set up after the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear fallout of March 2011 that left tens of thousands dead, missing or injured.Phase I of the project was a response to the immediate needs of affected people following the disaster. NSKK clergy and laity provided relief, rehabilitation and support for vulnerable people such as children, the elderly, those with disabilities, and foreign migrants.In Phase II of the project, Let Us Walk Together: Honesty and Hope, NSKK not only aims to build on its humanitarian work to date, but also to become a beacon of truth about the real impact of the nuclear fallout.“Those with a financial interest in keeping Japan nuclear-powered rarely reveal the full facts about the impact of radioactive fallout,” explained Yoshimi Gregory, a Japanese national working at the Anglican Communion Office.“This is why the Anglican Church in Japan has decided it is going to undertake its own research into the impact of the nuclear fallout and make that information publicly available. This will include the stories of those living with the legacy of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.”An example of that legacy is the church-run kindergartens which are in supposedly “safe” areas. In fact they need to be cleaned daily of radioactive material inside and out before children can enter. What’s worse is that the youngsters cannot play outside because the playground contains contaminated soil that has been there since the power plant melted down.Kay Ikezumi, the new director of the Let Us Walk Together: Honesty and Hope project said, “Needless to say the children, families and teachers [in these areas] are stressed. The children need to be able to run and play and discover the world around them. It is not safe to do these things within the radiation-contaminated area.”Ikezumi said the NSKK project will help families and teachers to travel to camps away from such places, giving them a break from living with nuclear contamination.NSKK will also continue to provide other humanitarian programs for the thousands of people still living in the temporary accommodation that has been their home since the disaster.On a recent visit to the country, members of the Church of England were told that some people from affected areas were being treated as second-class citizens. A refugee community spokesperson told them that engagements to be married had been broken off, and jobs had been refused to those suspected of being contaminated by radiation.To help people understand the truth about the affects of the radioactive fallout, NSKK is going to exchange its research findings with both secular and religious organizations in the country. It also plans to organize symposiums and lectures, and organize study tours to affected areas to allow as many people as possible to learn about the true effects of radioactivity on humans and their environment.In June 2012 statement, NSKK’s 59th General Synod called for nuclear power to be abolished. “There is no denying that, even without accidents, nuclear power is a real threat to people’s lives in that it imposes sacrifices on socially weakened people throughout the process, from the mining of uranium to the disposal of radioactive waste.”It concluded, “In solidarity with other denominations and faiths, we call for an immediate abolition of nuclear power plants and a conversion of Japan’s energy policy toward the development of alternative sources of energy.” Anglican Communion, Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Youth Minister Lorton, VA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Pittsburgh, PA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Submit an Event Listing Director of Music Morristown, NJ Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Press Release Service Rector Tampa, FL In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Smithfield, NC Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Albany, NY Submit a Job Listing Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector Columbus, GA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Hopkinsville, KY Tags Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Featured Jobs & Calls An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET 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 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Collierville, TN Rector Bath, NC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Shreveport, LA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Asia Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Washington, DC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Anglicans take a stand for nuclear truth in Japan Rector Martinsville, VA By ACNS staffPosted Jul 12, 2013 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Submit a Press Release Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Knoxville, TN The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] The number of people who enslave adults and children for profit across the world is multiplying, and traffickers cumulatively make more money than the oil industry.That’s the assessment of Archbishop David Moxon, the archbishop of Canterbury’s representative to the Holy See and director of the Anglican Centre in Rome, who spoke during a recent forum at The Episcopal Church Center in New York.Traffickers treat those they enslave “as sub-human, as cattle, as economic units for whom human dignity, human freedom, human opportunity, human potential do not exist because you can make a lot of money quickly,” he said.The forum on sexual violence and human trafficking was sponsored by the Anglican Communion Office at the United Nations as a side event to the 59th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, meeting March 9-20. A crowd filled the church center’s Chapel of Christ the Lord for Moxon’s March 12 presentation, the first part of which was devoted to participants describing their efforts against human trafficking.Human trafficking and enslavement are “driven by [a] commercial profit-making endeavor, which is driven by greed, for which there is a massive demand,” Moxon said.It is hard to determine the number of people ensnared in this market, he said, because, “How do you quantify something that’s hidden?”Hotly debated estimates range between 25 million and 40 million people. Moxon cites the Global Slavery Index’s estimate of 35.8 million, but adds that whatever the number “It’s huge, and it has to be stopped.”When police try to target traffickers, however, “the prosecution rate is rather low because they shift, they move, they change borders, they cross countries,” he said. Traffickers “are assisted by international mafia, for example, in a way that eludes international police action quite well.”While rescuing people from trafficking and slavery is important, Moxon said, “we could devote all our energy to rescue, and we’d be rescuing until the end of time.”He countered the bleakness of this picture by describing what he called a new strategy linking business leaders with religious leaders across interfaith lines to turn off trafficking’s commercial tap and thus “bankrupt slavery.”The odds are stacked against eliminating human trafficking and its frequent corollary of sexual violence, Moxon said, but we must try because “the world isn’t free until these people are free.”Interfaith cooperationThe strategy for breaking the grip of traffickers that Moxon described began nearly two years ago when Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Pope Francis met for the first time. Welby knew that Francis had been “profoundly moved” by befriending a survivor of human trafficking in Argentina. Welby also knew that, early in his papacy, Francis had called for an examination of the church’s role in combating human trafficking and modern slavery. Thus, Moxon said, Welby “felt confident” that the pope would be open to his suggestion that their two churches try to work together against trafficking.Pope Francis and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby found common ground on the issue of human trafficking from the first time they met, Archbishop David Moxon says. Photo: Global Freedom NetworkThe eventual result was the formation of the Global Freedom Network, which aims to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking by 2020. That goal was the subject of an agreement announced on March 17, 2014, at the Vatican.At the same time, Australian philanthropist and businessman Andrew Forrest, an Anglican, decided to give away the fortune he had made in the mineral industry. In the midst of that effort, his daughter challenged him to pay attention to human trafficking. He formed the Walk Free Foundation, which seeks to end modern slavery. Forrest approached faith leaders all over the world to urge them to raise their voices against trafficking and modern slavery and to work together against it.The organizers took an even larger step on Dec. 2 when 12 Catholic, Anglican, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish and Orthodox leaders met at the Vatican and signed the “Joint Declaration of Religious Leaders Against Modern Slavery on World Day for the Abolition of Slavery”.“In the eyes of God, each human being is a free person, whether girl, boy, woman or man, and is destined to exist for the good of all in equality and fraternity,” the statement said, calling modern slavery a “crime against humanity.” Its signatories pledged “to work together for the freedom of all those who are enslaved and trafficked so that their future may be restored.”Achieving such unanimity has “been hard, it’s been rocky, it’s been turbulent,” Moxon said, but in the end “all the theology … jelled.” He noted, for instance, that both Shia and Sunni Muslim leaders signed the declaration.The declaration was signed just weeks after ISIS announced that slavery must be foundational to the new caliphate it says it is fighting to create, said Moxon, calling that sentiment “deeply sickening.”Pope Francis and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, back row on right, were among 12 Catholic, Anglican, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish and Orthodox leaders meeting at the Vatican Dec. 2 who signed the “Joint Declaration of Religious Leaders Against Modern Slavery on World Day for the Abolition of Slavery”. Photo: Global Freedom NetworkThe coalition of faith leaders will remain fragile at times, Moxon said, but the leaders hope to continue to find common ground.“We’ve never done this before — hammered out a strategic plan of a practical sort, with its important spiritual, theological backdrop — and it’s quite complex,” Moxon told ENS after the forum. “But I do think mission should drive ecumenism and interfaith action more than it does. That would help us a lot because if you’re just discussing concepts and theological motions, there will be endless details you can go on debating for a long, long time.”Instead, Moxon asked, paraphrasing a statement from Pope Francis: “Why don’t we act as if we are one now in the face of global evil?”Anti-slavery strategiesIn the face of that evil, the Global Freedom Network intends to act on a list of strategies, beginning with what is known as supply-chain auditing and cleansing. The process is designed to help companies reduce or eliminate the risk of modern slavery occurring in their supply chains, either as a direct or indirect result of their procurement practices.Or, as Moxon put it, it enables them to “get themselves slave-free for the good of their own soul, for the good of their country, for the good of the world and for the good, above all, of the people who have been enslaved.”Supply-chain auditing is crucial because, “apart from the sex industry, the only reason slavery exists is somebody is paying for the product the slaves make,” Moxon said.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby signs the Joint Declaration of Religious Leaders Against Modern Slavery on World Day for the Abolition of Slavery during a Dec. 2 meeting at the Vatican. The Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi Al Modarresi of Iraq, another of the 12 religious leaders who signed the declaration, looks on. Photo: Global Freedom NetworkThe Walk Free Foundation offers a guide (“Tackling Modern Slavery in Supply Chains”) for businesses that want to embark on that effort. U.S. electronics maker Hewlett Packard already has done this work, according to Moxon. Because faith leaders can speak to business leaders about the dignity of every human being, the archbishop of Canterbury will host a meeting of leaders of British corporations to encourage them to use the process.In a related move, the Global Freedom Network and Walk Free want to foster micro-financing programs through which people can earn more money for their work and thus not fall prey to false promises of wages from people who turn out to be slavers.Another strategy, caring for the survivors of trafficking, is especially suited to faith communities, Moxon said. Offering long-term support and “genuine restorative friendship” is crucial, and something that churches can do far better than governments, he said.The groups also are advocating for legal reforms to institutionalize supply-chain auditing and cleansing in ways that reward companies that do so. One such law is being proposed in the U.K. Parliament, he said. Moxon said some companies are leery of doing the audit because they fear prosecution over what they discover.Education and awareness-raising is another strategy and the Global Freedom Network offers resources that faith communities can use to do that work amongst themselves.The network wants to identify the 10 most slave-prone countries and establish local councils to devise local solutions based in each country’s customs, laws, culture, financial resources and existing efforts. Forrest, the Australian philanthropist, has donated $25 million for beginning this effort and others, especially the micro-financing strategy, Moxon said.Another strategy is to educate people about human trafficking. The Global Freedom Network offers resources that faith communities can use to do that work amongst themselves.Growing awarenessMoxon described his own growing awareness of the issue. Before he went to the Anglican Centre in Rome, Moxon was one of the archbishops of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. A New Zealand native, Moxon said that he was “only vaguely aware” of the pervasiveness of human trafficking and modern slavery before the archbishop of Canterbury asked him to get involved. Two years of studying the issue and helping to form the Global Freedom Network have left their mark on him.Archbishop David Moxon presides at Eucharist March 12 in The Episcopal Church Center’s Chapel of Christ the Lord. Moxon, the archbishop of Canterbury’s representative to the Holy See and director of the Anglican Centre in Rome, later hosted a forum on human trafficking and sexual violence. Assisting him at the Eucharist were the Rev. Canon James Calloway, Colleges and University of the Anglican Communion general secretary, and Angie Cabanban, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s diversity and ethnic ministries associate. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“It was a huge eye-opener; quite extraordinary,” he said during the ENS interview.It also changed how he looks at the women in his life.“The question of slavery has made me supersensitive to anything that looks like someone is expected to do too much for nothing,” he said.He also learned that much of the work needed to eliminate human trafficking is “dangerous or difficult or politically complicated, religiously sensitive, and you don’t necessarily see the glorious outcomes or the spiritual import, even.” But the work must be done, he said.Earlier in the day, during his sermon at a Eucharist in the chapel, Moxon told the story of a monk who longed to encounter Christ in his prayers said in his cell. Instead, he found him in the people he was required to serve each day.The question of “do we believe Christ is there or not is the really fundamental point,” Moxon said. “Do you believe it or not, is what it comes down to.”Editor’s note: The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council may consider a resolution March 21 to express its support of the collaborative efforts of worldwide governmental and non-governmental bodies to eradicate human trafficking, and call the Episcopal Church to action in a variety of ways.– The Rev.

Church in Brazil to celebrate 125 years

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Comments are closed. [Episcopal News Service] For 125 years the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil has been rooted in mission. What began as a mission church of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church has expanded its own mission fields into remote corners in what is the largest country in South America.In the coming days, the church will gather in Porto Alegre, the birthplace of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, to celebrate not only its 125th anniversary but also 50 years of autonomy and 30 years of women’s ordination.“It is important to celebrate this milestone because it is imperative that the history and memories of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil are kept alive,” said Archbishop Francisco de Assis da Silva, Brazil’s primate since 2013, and bishop of the Diocese of Southwest Brazil. “It is also an opportunity to celebrate and give thanksgivings for the dedication and devotion of many generations and to make visible the Anglican presence in Brazil.”In 1890, two missionaries from Virginia Theological Seminary, Lucien Lee Kinsolving and James Watson Morris, felt called to start the church in Brazil and established a presence in the southern city of Porto Alegre, where today the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity is located. Three additional missionaries — William Cabell Brown, John Gaw Meem and Mary Packard — came to Brazil in 1891 and established new missions in Santa Rita do Rio dos Sinos, Rio Grande and Pelotas, explained da Silva.In addition to the anniversary celebrations, the church will introduce a version of the Book of Common Prayer adapted to the Brazilian context. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will attend the June 5-7 celebration and is scheduled to give a lecture in commemoration of women’s ordination.“The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil has invited many friends and partners to celebrate this momentous and beautiful event,” said da Silva, adding that the church in Brazil hasn’t been alone in its mission, but has worked with religious partners. “We are ecumenical in both our souls and in our actions. It is important that the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil builds foundations and communities with a spirit for justice and justice for the next 125 years, just like it has been done for the last 125 years.”In 1810, when Brazil was still a Portuguese colony, the Anglican Church established expatriate chaplaincies. Later, after independence and the official separation of church and state in 1889, it sent missionaries. Still, the bonds of affection remain strongest with The Episcopal Church, since the mission field established in 1890 by Kinsolving and Watson remained part of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church until the Brazilian church became an autonomous province of the Anglican Communion in 1965.“These missionaries came to work with the Brazilians, unlike the British that came to work with their own,” said the Rev. Arthur Cavalcante, the church’s provincial secretary, during a late 2014 bilateral committee meeting in Sao Paulo. “Our relationship is obviously stronger with the Americans as they took the initiative to open a dialogue with the Brazilians.”In 1907, the missionary efforts in Brazil resulted in the establishment of a missionary district of The Episcopal Church under the leadership of Kinsolving, who by then was a bishop. In the 1950s, the Brazilian church began talking about its autonomy, and in 1965 the missionary district became the autonomous Province of Brazil. The Episcopal Church continued its financial support of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil until 1975.Following autonomy, though the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil maintained a strong connection to the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, it began to feel isolated. In 1990, at the time of the church’s centennial celebration, the primates of the two churches agreed to establish a bilateral committee to reconnect, re-establish friendships and encourage partnerships and companion relationships between the two churches.“No church lives in isolation,” said the Rev. Glenda McQueen, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society’s officer for Latin America and the Caribbean, adding that the church is Brazil presents an opportunity for partnerships. “The church in Brazil is responsible for the mission of the church in this part of the continent, but the church in Brazil also needs and invites her brothers and sisters in the church in other parts of the world to come and share, to come and learn. To come and experience God in this context, and for us in The Episcopal Church this is a wonderful opportunity for mission and ministry.”Being a young province of the Anglican Communion, the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil’s energy and abundant life serve not only as an example for others, but as an opportunity to be re-energized, to learn and to grow, and to share that energy, said McQueen.The Episcopal Church continues to send missionaries to Brazil: Church-appointed missionaries Monica Vega and Heidi Schmidt are serving the province, and Young Adult Service Corps missionary Rachel McDaniel is serving the Diocese of Southwestern Brazil. Two additional YASC missionaries are expected to head to Brazil later this year. The Diocese of Central Pennsylvania and the Diocese of Sao Paulo, and the Diocese of Brasilia and the Diocese of Indianapolis have existing companion relationships.In addition to seeking partnerships with The Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Anglican Church in Brazil recently hosted a three-day meeting of Portuguese-speaking churches, including some from Angola, Mozambique and Portugal, to promote the expression of the Portuguese church and to establish relations and partnerships in mission.“One hundred and twenty-five years after the missionaries came, Brazil is still very much a land of mission,” said Cavalcante. “There still needs to be a lot of support: Brazil is enormous and we still need missionaries to work in areas where the church is underrepresented in places like Amazonia, which covers 3.5 million kilometers squared, places reachable only by boats and in the northeast.”Brazil is the world’s fifth largest country both geographically and by population, with more than 200 million people. Though Roman Catholicism is no longer the state-sponsored religion, it has more Roman Catholics, 123 million, than any other country in the world.Unlike other Protestant and Evangelical churches, which in recent years have gained on the Roman Catholic Church’s dominance in South America, the Anglican Episcopal Church of Brazil preaches a social gospel aimed at engaging congregations and communities in conversations still considered taboo in certain circles.“We understand that the gospel shouldn’t be proclaimed just as salvation of the soul, but as the whole being,” said Rio de Janeiro Bishop Filadelfo Oliveira Neto, during the bilateral committee meeting.Despite having one of the fastest-growing economies over the last decade – the largest economy in South America and the seventh-largest in the world, with a growing middle class – Brazil has one of the highest rates of income inequality in the world. Access to land and affordable housing; high levels of domestic violence, racism and homophobia; discrimination and exploitation aimed at the high number of migrants working in the informal economy are issues not necessarily talked about in polite company, but are problems that the church is addressing.The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, as opposed to other Christian denominations, takes a more inclusive approach to preaching the Gospel. It offers a social gospel to Brazilian society, advocating for the rights of gays and lesbians, initiating conversations aimed at addressing the epidemic problem of violence against women, and standing with indigenous people and the landless rural workers movement.“It’s still a minority church, and since it’s more ‘liberal’ it has developed its own identity. … We offer a theology different from the more traditional Roman Catholic theology and that can be uncomfortable for people,” said Cavalcante. “The Anglican Church is a place where you can have an alternative vision for how to be and what is church.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Susan Hendershot Guy will serve as its new president, ending a year-long search for the successor to founding president the Rev. Sally Bingham, who is retiring after leading the organization for 18 years.“I am excited to continue to grow this vital organization and its critical mission to mobilize a religious response to global warming and to act as good stewards of our planet for future generations,” said Hendershot Guy, a minister ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) tradition, who has led this work in Iowa for seven years. “I deeply respect the work of Rev. Bingham and hope to build on the solid foundation she created. The need for people of faith to lead the movement to protect Creation has never been greater.”President Emeritus Bingham will remain involved on IPL’s board of directors. “It is with delight and my strong support that I leave IPL not only with a strong board of directors, but also in the capable hands of the Rev. Hendershot Guy who will carry IPL well into the 21st Century,” said Bingham.IPL has an unparalleled track record of educating millions of “people in the pews” about the call to care for Creation and mobilizing them to action, achieving clean energy policy wins from the local to international level. Mobilizing people of faith to be advocates for climate protection is more important than ever, as the Trump administration continues its reckless attempts to roll back urgently needed climate policies. Maintaining the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, and keeping congregations all over the U.S. moving forward with emissions reductions to show that “We are Still In” the Paris Accord are important priorities for IPL.

We are all to blame for using or accepting name-calling as the new “norm” and for failing to object to hateful speech, whether that hate-speech comes from politicians or from Bishops, clergy or parishioners. The biblical command to love the sojourner does not by itself establish how many refugees or immigrants a country should let in, who should be let in, or from where. It is not “racist” or “reprehensible” to expect former and present Presidents to enforce our federal laws. Each one of them put their hand on the Bible and took an oath to do so—not to selectively enforce only those laws they liked and to ignore those they found disagreeable. Those Americans whom the Executive Council label as “reprehensible racists,” supported Donald Trump not because they admire his vulgarity, but because they have lost hope and trust in their elected officials to enforce the Nation’s laws and to act for the benefit of Americans. Is it really necessary to put invectives like “reprehensible” and “racist” in a Church proclamation? First Peter 3:15 instructs Christians to defend their faith, but to do so “with gentleness and respect.” [English Standard Version] When the cause is just, there should be no reason to lace proclamations with insults and hateful labels like deplorables, reprehensible, or racist. Nor do I believe the Baptismal Covenant condones using hateful labels like misogynist, sexist, homophobe, islamaphobe, xenophobe or “Satanic” as weapons in a culture war with those who disagree with the Church’s political positions. It would appear that vitriol and apocalyptic negativism have replaced respectful dialogue as acceptable conduct. The “silent majority” still exists, which includes those in the middle who may find Trump to be personally repulsive, but who also find social Marxism and open borders to be an unacceptable alternative. Putting priorities on identity politics and immigrant rights over the rights of American citizens, and then expecting someone else to pay the financial costs of your compassion, is a recipe for empty pews. Polls indicate that more than 80% of Americans want enforcement and fixing our immigration laws, and most (even Trump) favor a path to citizenship for DACA immigrants. With the Executive Council issuing political declarations to condemn all these Americans as “reprehensible racists,” it should be no surprise that parishioners are choosing to leave the Church.

Photo: Alex Baker / ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] The Primate of the Episcopal Church of Sudan, Archbishop Ezekiel Kondo, has urged Christians around the world to “not grow tired of praying for Sudan”. Archbishop Ezekiel made his comments in an interview for the Christianity Today website, which focused on changes in the country since the revolution. The country is currently in a transitional period following the deposition of former President Omar al-Bashire on 11 April 2019 after 30 years in power.The change was sparked by street protests in the country from 19 December 2018. The Transitional Military Council and the Forces of Freedom and Changed agreed A 39-month transitional phase for the county’s institutions and procedures as part of a political agreement over a draft constitution. During the time, Sudan’s Head of State is a Sovereignty Council which brings together military and civilian representatives. There is a civilian Prime Minister and a mostly civilian cabinet.In his interview, Archbishop Ezekiel talks about the changing status for Christians in the country, but warns there is a long way to go to achieve true freedom of religion. “There has been no significant change”, he said when asked to rate religious freedom on a scale of one to 10. “I would give it a four, before and after.“There have been two good developments. One, Christmas has been declared a public holiday for everyone. Two, Christian schools can now operate on Saturday. The weekend is Friday and Saturday, with Sunday a working day. Now Christian schools can have Sunday off. So maybe I can change my opinion, and give Sudan a five, after the revolution.”He continued: “There remains difficulty in getting approval to build new churches. There are so many churches that have been built previously with no legal status, and the government has not acted to find solutions. The Ministry of Housing and Planning still has the right to come and demolish them at any time.“In addition, though there is a Christian woman on the Sovereignty Council, there is not a single Christian in the Cabinet of Ministers, or among the state-appointed governors.”Archbishop Ezekiel said that while the country’s apostasy law has been repealed, the freedom to convert will require a cultural change. “Let people decide for themselves about religion, that is their freedom. I should be able to change from Islam to Christianity if I want to, or from Christianity to Islam if I want to.”The freedom for Christians to share their faith with Muslims was “possible on paper”, he said, but he doubted whether that freedom existed in practice. “Islam is a culture”, he said. “It will take some time for people to get used to the change in the apostasy law. But perhaps it will be possible in the long run.”The Church in Sudan, Archbishop Ezekiel said, was “spiritually strong” but facing practical difficulties. “What we lack is biblical teaching. After the secession of South Sudan, many learned people left Sudan to go there. The majority of churches also lack finances. We need to grow in these areas, in order to become self-reliant.“But church buildings are full, despite the difficulty in transportation. People come from great distances, and this is one example that shows their love for the Lord. And Covid-19 has really helped people come together, pray, and study the scriptures.”“Please do not grow tired of praying for Sudan”, he added. “Pray that what has been done in this revolution will be implemented. Pray the same for the peace deals signed with some of the armed groups, and that others will sign. It is only a partial peace right now, not complete.“If peace comes, it will result in a strong economy, as money will shift from war to development. Refugees and the internally displaced will return, in order to develop their own areas and houses. This is very important.“Pray also for the church to be faithful to the gospel.”Archbishop Ezekiel was consecrated Bishop of Khartoum in 2003. After South Sudan gained political independence in 2011, the Episcopal Church of Sudan became the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan and Bishop Ezekiel became Archbishop of the internal province of Sudan. In 2017, the Province of the Episcopal Church of Sudan became an independent Province of the Anglican Communion, with Archbishop Ezekiel as its Primate.Click here to read the full interview on the Christianity Today website.

It’s not exactly sunshine for parents either who feel the strain and pressure to help their child earn the best score possible to help pave the way to their college education.Andrea Catsicas, Founder of Mindworks Prep www.mindworksprep.com , has expert insight to help parents and students prepare for College Admission Testing.The tips include:Distraction Action – It’s harder and harder for children to study for college prep tests in the digital age, with all of the added distractions.  There’s nothing wrong with taking their phone away and having them study out of an SAT book for an hour, in a place where you can visually monitor that your child is not allowing distractions to take over.Read to Succeed – The redesigned SAT is more focused on reading comprehension than ever before.  Now, more than ever, pleasure reading is a way to study for the SAT.Review and Improve – You can order a copy of the actual test your child took (depends on the time of year); for other tests, you will receive stats on how your child did, but not copies of the specific questions that were missed.ACT or SAT – Find out which test is preferred by your child’s dream school ACT or SAT.  If you’re prepping for one test and the school prefers the other, you might be wasting time, energy and money.How’s it Coming? – Sign your child up for Khan Academy and monitor how quickly your child progresses through its lessons.  Khan Academy has exclusive rights to information about testing content, and its questions mirror College Board questions more than any prep book (besides the actual College Board SAT book).MISCONCEPTION: The ACT and the new SAT are similar: they’re more similar, but their essays are totally different, and their math content covers entirely different classes (the ACT delves into pre-calculus a great deal more).MISCONCEPTION: It isn’t easy to study for the SAT’s during the school year: juggling school and test prep work is extremely challenging.  Starting your student with a test prep program as early in their education process as possible is one of the best ways around this challenge.” UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here Gov.

Yanny or Laurel? It’s your brain not your ears that decides

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here By Jennell Vick, Assistant Professor of Communication Sciences, Case Western Reserve University and first published on theconversation.comAs a speech scientist, I never thought I’d see so much excitement on social media about one tiny little word.The clip, which went viral after being posted on Reddit, is polarizing listeners who hear a computer voice say either “Laurel” or “Yanny.” @AlexWelke tweeted, “This is the kinda stuff that starts wars.” While I can’t prevent a war, I can explain some reasons why this sound file has created such a controversy. Basically, the “word” relies on some tricks of acoustics. Your brain, and those of the millions of other Twitter viewers is responsible for the rest.This spectrogram visually represents the sound frequencies in the ‘Yanny’ or ‘Laurel’ clip.Jennell Vick, CC BY-NDKudos to University of Minnesota speech-language researcher and professor Ben Munson for his original analysis explaining how the acoustic file can lead listeners to one of two conclusions. He used spectrographic analysis to demonstrate how the sound file might create confusion.The discrepancy in what people hear comes down to a few different possibilities, none of which sort it out for certain. Clearly, though, one cause of its trickiness is that the sound file is synthesized, which is different than real speech. It’s akin to the synthetic flavors encountered in the candy world – think Jelly Belly Buttered Popcorn, the preference for which is as polarizing as this Yanny/Laurel thing.Without a doubt, all this confusion is only possible because of the consonants in “Yanny” and “Laurel.” The “y,” “n,” “l” and “r” sounds are really the chameleons of speech. The way one pronounces them morphs based on the sounds that come before and after them in a word. Because of this, it is the brain of the listener that decides their identity, based on context. In this case, the sound is missing a few elements and your brain automatically makes a judgment, called interpolation, similar to how you can so easily read partially erased text.The fact that, for the life of me, I can only hear “Laurel” is because of a phenomenon called categorical perception. Originally described in 1957 and supported by countless additional studies, the idea is that your brain naturally sorts things into categories.For example, my husband and I can never agree on the color of our couch (definitely green, not black, by the way), because while there is easily a continuum between very dark green and black, the boundaries between them vary for everyone. While we could agree that our couch looks blackish green, there is no such compromise in the perception of speech. Without conscious effort, our brain decides what our ears are hearing. Black or green, not blackish green. Yanny or Laurel, not some blend.Whatever your brain tells you about Yanny/Laurel, the whole controversy should help everyone understand why it’s so hard to have a conversation in a noisy restaurant or why people with hearing loss sometimes “mishear” what you have to say. Listening to speech feels like a basic skill, but understanding speech is really an amazing feat. People perceive messages using the information available, which is sometimes incomplete. Our brains also make predictions based on past experiences. Listening in a foreign language, even if you are a fluent speaker, is challenging because your brain uses predictions based on both languages, but is unduly influenced by your experiences with your native language.This internet hullabaloo underscores the marvelous, effortless, constant work of the human brain.

Opinion: Faith and InspirationBy The Apopka Voice Editorial StaffThe streets of Heaven are too crowded tonight…too crowded with our friends, our families and our neighbors.It was the most violent week in Central Florida history. Christina Grimme was shot and killed after concluding a concert Friday night at The Plaza Live. Early Sunday morning a gunman shot and killed 49 people, and wounded 53 others at the Pulse Nightclub. Then on Wednesday a 2-year-old boy drowned when an alligator pulled him into a man-made lake at Disney World.It was a shocking, horrific week of events that has left us heartbroken, numb and weary of the next story in the news.And Apopka was by no means immune from the tragedies. Miguel Angel Honorato, Sr. and Eddie Justice were both killed at The Pulse Nightclub shooting. Both men are from Apopka.The community was staggered, but then it went into action.By early Sunday afternoon, there were lines around the Blood One Blood Bank on Park Avenue. It became so crowded that they asked the donors to return on future days with an appointment. The details of that event can be read here.Later that evening, the community continued its support for the victims with a prayer vigil held at Kit Land Nelson Park. Despite it being a quickly organized event, an estimated crowd of 75 attended. The details of that event can be read here.During the week, offers from local businesses and churches poured in for free limousines, funeral services, counseling and flowers. The City of Apopka offered two free burial plots.At the Wednesday City Council meeting, Mayor Joe Kilsheimer expressed his thoughts on the events of the weekend.“We have two funerals of Apopka victims coming up this weekend. They are brothers and sisters and they had brothers and sisters. One was the father of three children. Our community is devastated. Earlier in the day, Mayor Teresa Jacobs (of Orange County) called and asked if I could attend a press conference that brought together elected leaders and faith leaders throughout Orange County. We came together in a spirit of love. The Central Florida community is in need of healing right now. And that is the message that I want to convey. I’m going to wear the rainbow ribbon in honor of the victims.”On Thursday night there were two prayer vigils; one at Phillis Wheatley Elementary School and another at Journey Christian Church.About 300 people attended the service at Wheatley Elementary.  They came to pray, light candles and mourn for the life of Eddie Justice, one of the 49 people killed last Sunday in the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.  Eddie’s mother, Wilamena attended.  Several community leaders spoke and prayed, including Pastor Hezekiah Bradford, Pastor Richard King, County Commissioner Bryan Nelson and Apopka Police Captain Jerome Miller.Over 400 people attended the service at Journey Christian Church. A member of the Orlando Police SWAT team was present, along with an ORMC Emergency Room nurse. The service began with a moving video from gunshot victim Christine Grimme. The video can be seen here.“We mourn these victims tonight,” said John Hampton, Lead Pastor of Journey. “Everybody is somebody’s everybody.”Other pastors at Journey  prayed for the first responders, the medical community, the leaders of Central Florida, and the LGBTQ community.On Friday night the final vigil was held at Kit Land Nelson Park. Elected officials, pastors and the community grieved for the victims and their families for the fourth time in a public setting.The streets of Heaven are far too crowded with angels after the events of this week. Central Florida will never forget these tragic events. But in another corner of Heaven, perhaps in a small office somewhere off the beaten trail, there is a scribe who writes the history of Apopka. He wept as he wrote the names of Miguel Angel Honorato Sr. and Eddie Justice early on Sunday. They departed their families much sooner than they should have.But as this scribe dips his quill into his inkwell and writes the history of Apopka’s last seven days, he is smiling. Even in tragedy this town leads with its heart, pours out compassion and charity, and keeps moving forward.God bless you Apopka.Photos from the first vigil at Kit Land Nelson Park LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate TAGSapopkaPrayer VigilsPulse Shooting Previous articleFake News Site Targets ApopkaNext article4Rivers Opens Today to Raise Funds for Pulse Victims Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment!last_img read more

Quality partnerships build successful community health organizations

first_img Community Health Centers relies on clinical, academic and community partnershipsBy Margaret Brennan, President/CEO – Community Health Centers, Inc.You cannot provide the best care for a community and its residents alone. You need to establish and grow trusted relationships with your peers and partners to maximize the positive impact you can have on a population.Community Health Centers Inc. has been blessed with several outstanding partnerships since our founding in 1972. These relationships include academic partners such as Florida State University, Valencia College, University of Florida and the University of Central Florida, as well as close partnerships and alignment with health systems such as AdventHealth and Orlando Health, among others.  These valuable connections contribute to our success as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in many ways. From financial support to the expansion of necessary services and facilities, to providing a training pipeline for the next generation of medical or dental providers, pharmacists, nurses, medical staff and dental assistants, we are grateful to those who share in our mission.By having a strong community focus, a non-profit organization like Community Health Centers is able to develop a strong community reputation. By building trust with our patients, we are able to truly become partners in not only their care but also in their life. We seek to care for the whole person, and this includes assisting with nutrition and emotional health as well as physical wellness.For example, we established innovative partnerships with local food banks to develop prescription health programs that have a significant impact on managing conditions such as diabetes for our patients. We also work very closely with our local WIC and Healthy Start programs, and the Farmworker Association of Florida, to provide care to those who might not otherwise have access to quality options.Our community partnerships also benefit us in staffing our facilities and health centers. As a region that is currently facing shortages in the workforce, it is important to develop programs that will help attract students to the medical field and help bridge the gaps that currently exist in filling our entry-level positions.We are proud to serve culturally diverse communities and our workforce reflects that. There are numerous instances where patients became employees. It is an amazing feeling to see a patient, who trusts you with their care, want to give back and serve other patients in a similar way. Our centers are staffed with friends and neighbors caring for other friends and neighbors. This is ultimately what partnerships are about and demonstrates the positive impact and influence a Federally Qualified Health Center can have within a neighborhood.We invite you to learn more about our many partnerships, and the value they bring to our patients and our community.

Hundreds of fish species, including many that humans eat, are consuming…

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate By Alexandra McInturf, PhD Candidate in Animal Behavior, University of California, Davis and Matthew Savoca, Postdoctoral researcher, Stanford UniversityTrillions of barely visible pieces of plastic are floating in the world’s oceans, from surface waters to the deep seas. These particles, known as microplastics, typically form when larger plastic objects such as shopping bags and food containers break down.Researchers are concerned about microplastics because they are minuscule, widely distributed and easy for wildlife to consume, accidentally or intentionally. We study marine science and animal behavior, and wanted to understand the scale of this problem. In a newly published study that we conducted with ecologist Elliott Hazen, we examined how marine fish – including species consumed by humans – are ingesting synthetic particles of all sizes.In the broadest review on this topic that has been carried out to date, we found that, so far, 386 marine fish species are known to have ingested plastic debris, including 210 species that are commercially important. But findings of fish consuming plastic are on the rise. We speculate that this could be happening both because detection methods for microplastics are improving and because ocean plastic pollution continues to increase.Researchers at California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium have found microplastic particles from the surface to the seafloor, where they can be ingested by a wide range of sea creatures.Solving the plastics puzzleIt’s not news that wild creatures ingest plastic. The first scientific observation of this problem came from the stomach of a seabird in 1969. Three years later, scientists reported that fish off the coast of southern New England were consuming tiny plastic particles.Since then, well over 100 scientific papers have described plastic ingestion in numerous species of fish. But each study has only contributed a small piece of a very important puzzle. To see the problem more clearly, we had to put those pieces together.We did this by creating the largest existing database on plastic ingestion by marine fish, drawing on every scientific study of the problem published from 1972 to 2019. We collected a range of information from each study, including what fish species it examined, the number of fish that had eaten plastic and when those fish were caught. Because some regions of the ocean have more plastic pollution than others, we also examined where the fish were found.For each species in our database, we identified its diet, habitat and feeding behaviors – for example, whether it preyed on other fish or grazed on algae. By analyzing this data as a whole, we wanted to understand not only how many fish were eating plastic, but also what factors might cause them to do so. The trends that we found were surprising and concerning.Leopard sharks swim past plastic debris in shallow water off southern California.Ralph Pace, CC BY-NDA global problemOur research revealed that marine fish are ingesting plastic around the globe. According to the 129 scientific papers in our database, researchers have studied this problem in 555 fish species worldwide. We were alarmed to find that more than two-thirds of those species had ingested plastic.One important caveat is that not all of these studies looked for microplastics. This is likely because finding microplastics requires specialized equipment, like microscopes, or use of more complex techniques. But when researchers did look for microplastics, they found five times more plastic per individual fish than when they only looked for larger pieces. Studies that were able to detect this previously invisible threat revealed that plastic ingestion was higher than we had originally anticipated.Our review of four decades of research indicates that fish consumption of plastic is increasing. Just since an international assessment conducted for the United Nations in 2016, the number of marine fish species found with plastic has quadrupled.Similarly, in the last decade alone, the proportion of fish consuming plastic has doubled across all species. Studies published from 2010-2013 found that an average of 15% of the fish sampled contained plastic; in studies published from 2017-2019, that share rose to 33%.We think there are two reasons for this trend. First, scientific techniques for detecting microplastics have improved substantially in the past five years. Many of the earlier studies we examined may not have found microplastics because researchers couldn’t see them.Second, it is also likely that fish are actually consuming more plastic over time as ocean plastic pollution increases globally. If this is true, we expect the situation to worsen. Multiple studies that have sought to quantify plastic waste project that the amount of plastic pollution in the ocean will continue to increase over the next several decades.Risk factorsWhile our findings may make it seem as though fish in the ocean are stuffed to the gills with plastic, the situation is more complex. In our review, almost one-third of the species studied were not found to have consumed plastic. And even in studies that did report plastic ingestion, researchers did not find plastic in every individual fish. Across studies and species, about one in four fish contained plastics – a fraction that seems to be growing with time. Fish that did consume plastic typically had only one or two pieces in their stomachs.In our view, this indicates that plastic ingestion by fish may be widespread, but it does not seem to be universal. Nor does it appear random. On the contrary, we were able to predict which species were more likely to eat plastic based on their environment, habitat and feeding behavior.For example, fishes such as sharks, grouper and tuna that hunt other fishes or marine organisms as food were more likely to ingest plastic. Consequently, species higher on the food chain were at greater risk.We were not surprised that the amount of plastic that fish consumed also seemed to depend on how much plastic was in their environment. Species that live in ocean regions known to have a lot of plastic pollution, such as the Mediterranean Sea and the coasts of East Asia, were found with more plastic in their stomachs.Effects of a plastic dietThis is not just a wildlife conservation issue. Researchers don’t know very much about the effects of ingesting plastic on fish or humans. However, there is evidence that that microplastics and even smaller particles called nanoplastics can move from a fish’s stomach to its muscle tissue, which is the part that humans typically eat. Our findings highlight the need for studies analyzing how frequently plastics transfer from fish to humans, and their potential effects on the human body.Our review is a step toward understanding the global problem of ocean plastic pollution. Of more than 20,000 marine fish species, only roughly 2% have been tested for plastic consumption. And many reaches of the ocean remain to be examined. Nonetheless, what’s now clear to us is that “out of sight, out of mind” is not an effective response to ocean pollution – especially when it may end up on our plates.This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

England get the better of France with some great tries at Twickenham

first_imgMonday Aug 17, 2015 England get the better of France with some great tries at Twickenham England scored three top quality tries as they beat France 19-14 in their Rugby World Cup warmup match at Twickenham on Saturday. Anthony Watson scored a brace, while Sam Burgess had an impressive debut, despite being yellow carded. Henry Slade and former League star Burgess formed a midfield partnership, both making their debuts but contributing to some well worked tries, particularly the second for Watson.The first was more of an individual effort, with the Bath flyer standing up his opposition number and rounding him for a brilliant wingers try.By the time Jonny May scored in the second half, England had impressed in the warmup game that will give them some confidence going into their next meeting with France, who themselves will look to get combinations right and build on some of the positives from Twickenham.England had two players sinbinned as first Burgess, then Calum Clark, were shown yellow.Fulgence Ouedraogo powered over for a try for France, but it wasn’t enough to take the win.“We are disappointed because we came here to win. We had our chances and we had a lot of pressure on their line. But we did not finish them off as well as we should have,” said Ouedraogo post match.England Skipper Tom Wood said that the victory was satisfying while challenging.“It’s good to start the three warm-up games with a win, especially at Twickenham. We knew France would come looking to give us plenty of problems and it was as tough as I thought it would be.”The two sides meet again in Paris next weekend, where France will hope to build momentum going into a World Cup that sees them up against Ireland, Italy, Canada and Romania in Pool D.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error England Rugby Related Articles 42 WEEKS AGO The Dylan Hartley Eddie Jones saga shows… 43 WEEKS AGO IT’S FINALLY TIME: All you need to know ahead… 46 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones responds and explains thought… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

They drove the opposition pack from Luctonians back so far and with so much force, that they took down the posts in the process.The try was not awarded, and the National League Two North fixture had to be moved to another field, before table-topping Hinckley went on to win the match 52-12.“I didn’t really think anything of it until the post started falling down, the bloke behind ran for cover and then I just thought ‘well there’s £7,000 gone like that’,” Hinckley’s John Tilley told the BBC.credit: hinckleyrugbyfootball club/guardiansportADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Prop red carded for leading with the elbow but former players disagree

first_imgMonday Sep 24, 2018 Prop red carded for leading with the elbow but former players disagree Edinburgh front rower Pierre Schoeman was sent for an early shower when his team faced Leinster in Dublin on Saturday. The former Blue Bulls prop led with the elbow, catching Dan Leavy in a routine looking carry. The referee had little choice, but some are not convinced.ADVERTISEMENTLeinster beat Edinburgh without too much trouble at the RDS, picking up a 31-7 win with five tries to one.Late in the game, their task was made even easier when South African prop Schoeman was given his marching orders. The 24-year-old accepted his fate, even apologising momentarily before leaving the field.“It is a red card these days,” said disappointed Edinburgh coach Richard Cockerill. “You’ve got to protect people. I don’t think it was malicious from our guy if he’s dropping a fraction but look, it happens. It’s an accident more than anything and we know the consequences if it happens.”While Schoeman appeared to look at fend Leavy in the chest with his forearm, the result looked bad and led to an HIA for Leavy, after he was knocked to the turf.As mentioned in commentary, however, Leavy’s upright tackling may have contributed to the incident and perhaps reiterated the desire of World Rugby to get players to look at their technique, with hinging at the hips being something that may well be made mandatory in the game in the next five years or so. Like it or not.ADVERTISEMENTFormer Edinburgh forward Jim Hamilton did not agree with the red card, and he wasn’t the only one.Another red card for Schoeman that imo isn’t a red in the Edinburgh vs Leinster match.

Owen Farrell’s suspension will be decided via an online disciplinary panel on Tuesday

first_imgMonday Sep 7, 2020 Owen Farrell’s suspension will be decided via an online disciplinary panel on Tuesday Following the tackle that earned him a straight red card, Owen Farrell will face a disciplinary panel on Tuesday evening, looking likely to cop a sizable ban that will see him out of action for a significant portion of the season.ADVERTISEMENTThe England playmaker was shown a straight red card by referee Christophe Ridley in the 61st minute of Saturday’s match between Saracens and Wasps for a dangerous tackle on Wasps’ Charlie Atkinson.The two players exchanged words when Atkinson came off the field, but a lot of fans and media have expressed outrage at Farrell’s latest tackling transgression.The red card will mean that he is set to miss out on the crucial Champions Cup quarter-final with Leinster on September 19.“It is what it is. He could easily have been out of the Leinster came for another reason – injury or whatever,” said director of rugby Mark McCall.“He missed the last quarter-final of the Champions Cup because his wife was having their first child. We have got plenty of good backs at the club so we will just rearrange our back line a little bit and get on with it.”ADVERTISEMENTNews of the suspension will likely come out late on Tuesday evening.

Our reaction to the setting of an existing Queenslander – a site which is heavily overlooked by 5 neighbouring properties – led to the construction of a facade that idealises the setting for new rooms accommodating a bathhouse, stair room, guest room, family room and a writer’s studio. The principal orientation of these rooms is manipulated towards the north and backyard landscape compositions are framed with carefully positioned apertures and orchestrated lines of sight. Views of neighbouring houses are edited from key moments of occupation in the new rooms. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermo Timber and Industrial ThermowoodWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsWith an ongoing interest in room making, we questioned how the new facade may conceal or reveal the arrangement of rooms and the building’s cross section, and conversely, how the nature of rooms directly behind the facade may inform its elevational composition. We drew on both the formal devices of Palladio and the latent spatial complexity and silent facades of Loos as inspiration. Save this picture!Palladio’s elevated Villa Foscari in Malcontenta provided answers to our topographically challenged ambition to engage the rear garden and ground plane of the steep terrain, and as such our building re-enacts the promenade sequence from Piano Nobile to garden at Malcontenta. The vertical promenade effectively places the occupant en-route to or from the garden once in the stair room and as such, circulation through the new works is undeniably connected to the garden. Save this picture!Formal compositions and fenestration in the facade suggest possible room planning behind, proving ambiguous and adding to a reticence appropriate in suburbia, where privacy holds currency. Save this picture!The ordering logic of the facade provides little explanation of the subtle complexity of the building’s cross section and the latent hierarchy of rooms. For example, the large gaping opening (which could be Palladio’s thermal window) suggests a large or public room behind, however one discovers a stair room. Save this picture!Furthermore, the same large opening cannot be closed-off to undesirable weather conditions, reinforcing the coalescence of the stair (promenade) and nature (garden). Save this picture!The application of Loos’ room planning technique assisted in optimising the tall volume deploying rooms over effectively 3 levels in what is constrained by authorities as a 2 storey structure – reminding us of the story of Loos’ Villa Mueller in Prague.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessUp to 35: Student Housing International CompetitionArticlesBrazil Contemporary – Contemporary art, architecture, visual culture and designArticles Share ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/30627/balmoral-house-owen-and-vokes Clipboard 2007 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/30627/balmoral-house-owen-and-vokes Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeOwen and VokesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesBalmoralAustraliaPublished on August 01, 2009Cite: “Balmoral House / Owen and Vokes” 01 Aug 2009.

Zimmermann House / SAM Architekten und Partner

first_imgPhotographs:  Hannes HenzText description provided by the architects. Building a house is a kind of apprentice piece for every architect. Yet the deeper you become involved in this type of commission, the more you realise that it is not as simple as it might seem. Every building is a challenge, no matter how many times you may have done something similar before. With this building there was much that was different: the plot already had a house on it, but the development density was less than that which is now permitted. The clients were clear about what they wanted in terms of space, and also were open to suggestions that could influence their lifestyle. Save this picture!© Hannes HenzThe slopes above the old centre of the village of Küsnacht receive a good deal of sun and enjoy extensive views across Lake Zürich and the Alps beyond. In the 1940s modest houses with driveways were built up the hillside. Low walls topped with hedges line the roads. The new buildings that are now replacing these old houses have to fit into narrow plots and strike a balance between affording a view of the surrounding landscape and preserving privacy from close neighbours.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzThe house in question here – for a family with two children – stands in the centre of the plot, on a plateau which was already used for the small house that had stood here previously. The clients wanted to have as far-reaching views as possible from the living areas, a request that led to the (for this area) unusual solution of having the living room, terrace and kitchen on the top floor. Three large panorama openings afford a view across the lake, over the hedges and past the trees in the neighbouring gardens; privacy and shelter is provided by the parapets and lintels, and on the solid-concrete side and rear walls by keeping the windows small. Save this picture!Elevations & SectionsThe ground floor, by contrast, is entirely open and transparent. Enveloped in storey-high glazing, the bedrooms and of- fice spaces are visually extended out into the garden. Anyone standing on the lawn or gravel areas can immediately grasp the layout of the interior; under the protective solidity of the upper storey, the outer space seems to flow right through the ground floor. This design device has the effect of making the plot feel larger than it is; seclusion from the neighbouring houses is still maintained by planting hedges along the plot borders. Save this picture!Model 01The house is simple and compact in volume, and has sym- metrical window openings. The upper structure of the house, cast in limestone concrete and resting on the internal walls of the ground floor, exploits the sloping site and opens up lines of sight between the outside and the inside. Throughout the house views and daylighting solutions are an ever present feature. In the side wall of the outdoor swimming pool, for example, there are two windows, through which daylight can filter into the fitness room in the basement. Save this picture!Model 02The building process required the concrete to be poured in successive stages to achieve an overall visual unity, with no joints. For the formwork for the fair-faced concrete façades sawn boards were used, such as were common before the advent of panel systems. The texture left by this horizontal boarding gives the house a robust air, referencing also the older houses nearby.Project gallerySee allShow lessChinese/German Eco-Park / gmp ArchitektenArticles2012 New Practices New York CompetitonArticles Share Projects “COPY” Switzerland “COPY” ArchDaily CopyHouses•Küsnacht, Switzerland Architects: SAM Architekten und Partner Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Zimmermann House / SAM Architekten und Partnercenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/189531/zimmermann-house-sam-architekten-und-partner Clipboard Photographs Zimmermann House / SAM Architekten und PartnerSave this projectSaveZimmermann House / SAM Architekten und Partner Houses 2009 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/189531/zimmermann-house-sam-architekten-und-partner Clipboard Save this picture!© Hannes Henz+ 13 Share CopyAbout this officeSAM Architekten und PartnerOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesKüsnachtSwitzerlandPublished on December 10, 2011Cite: “Zimmermann House / SAM Architekten und Partner” 10 Dec 2011.

Through an architectural design competition it was  commissioned a building of 6 apartments with an architectural program for a young family of two rooms with bathroom each one, living room, kitchen, study, open area, utility room, laundry room , extra bathroom, and parking. The land was a challenge because of its proportion, size, and that one of the surrounding buildings is listed by the INBA (Mexican institution for protection of historical buildings), so the new building has to maintain a dialogue with it. As part of the strategy were designed 5 town houses  of 5 levels each including basement, this allowed us to expand the client program and deliver a product that has low offer and high demand in the area.Save this picture!Courtesy of Santiago de la Mora, Fernando Martinez & JCKA horizontal building was projected, maintaining a blind facade to the  street and creating all the openings to the interior where we could control the environment,  the south facade of the building creates a window of 7 m X 29 m long to generate views and light, because this orientation in self-shadowed summer and in winter the facade allows the entry of the sun, to control the overheating was placed a green wall the same size as the window parallel to this to block the sun . To control the climate within each town house there were placed strategically windows an a chimney to allow the hot air out and cool air in  , keeping the range of climatic comfort throughout the year, avoiding the implementation of air conditioning and heating. The rooms have a second glass facade and north ventilation, thereby public areas have an independent climate. The construction process of the building consists of 6 reinforced concrete walls and  joined by steel beams. As part of the interior were placed ash wood floor, apparent concrete walls, kitchen black glass and Carrara marble bathrooms.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSixtyNine-Seventy, The Spaces Between: An Urban Ideas CompetitionArticlesPioneering architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable has died at 91ArticlesProject locationAddress:Mexico City, Distrito Federal, MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

Driven by a “more is more” mantra, developers and architects are using cantilevers to extend the reach of a building, creating unique vistas and extended floor space in a market in which both are priced at sky-high premiums.”In New York, development is a three-dimensional chess game,” says Dan Kaplan, a senior partner at FXFOWLE Architects. Why stop at simply building taller? Zoning codes limit how high a building can rise – especially in “landmarked” neighborhoods which abide by strict limits in order to preserve contextual heights. So, if you can’t go any higher, why not extend outwards using your neighbor’s unused airspace?“The reason we’re seeing an increase in the use of cantilevers above neighboring buildings is linked to the complexity of finding a site that can utilize all available development rights,” explains Kaplan in a recent New York Time article. The Isis, an 18-story condominium designed by FXFowle on East 77th Street, is a prime example of this opportunistic approach. The architects incorporated two eight-foot cantilevers; one floats 17 feet above the airspace of Xavier High School; the other, projects 36 feet above a north-facing courtyard. Save this picture!The Isis Condominium. Image Courtesy of FXFOWLEBy selling their air rights at $13.7 million, the high school was able to monetize space that it had no intention of using. Inversely, the developers – Alchemy Properties – were able to extend apartment layouts adding value to each individual unit. “In the 1920s they used to build straight up, with wedding-cake-type setbacks,” Kaplan adds, “but with a cantilever, we can build outward as well as up, and in kind of an inversion of the wedding-cake theme, the floors are bigger toward the top, where space is more valuable.” Save this picture!The Porter House. Image © SHoP ArchitectsOther notable New York cantilevers taking advantage of unused airspace include SHoP’s Porter House (with an eight foot cantilever), Herzog and de Meuron’s 56 Leonard Street tower in TriBeCa, and the planned luxury residential tower on 224 West 57th Street which is to cantilever above the 1890s landmark, the Arts Students League, rising 1,423 feet anchored by New York City’s first Nordstrom department store. Save this picture!56 Leonard Street. Image Courtesy of Herzog and de Mueron“Some people may not like [the cantilever],” says David Von Spreckelsen, Senior Vice President of Toll Brother’s City Living, “but I think it adds an interesting modern component, and with people not willing to sell their property to you, but willing to sell their air rights, the cantilever almost becomes a necessity.” With a seemingly endless demand for new housing stock in New York City, the cantilever adds value and aesthetics that did not exist before. The movement of intercepting shapes, as Wright discovered long ago, has created a dynamic alternative to the typical glass box. This, together with its ability to add salable square footage, makes the cantilever a viable player in a spatially-challenged real estate market.

One of the houses occupies the ground and the first floor, while the other the second floor of the building. The two houses have separate entrances and the second one is approached through an open air staircase or by an elevator. Utilities and a car parking are placed in the basement.Save this picture!© Nikos DaniilidisAs the climate in Athens is Mediterranean – mild it is usual during many months of the year, for daily activities to be held outdoors. Therefore it is essential in the design process to incorporate agreeable outdoor living spaces. In this case a shell of in situ exposed concrete encloses the L shaped building volume and an open air courtyard. Most internal spaces face into the courtyard which includes a pool. The notion of house around an enclosed open air space is very old and commonly used in many parts of the world, as it serves well urban habitation. In this case, the outdoor living space is clearly defined by full height walls that provide regulated climate conditions (sunshading – cooling – protection from strong winds) and privacy as well as a controlled visual relationship with the surroundings.Project gallerySee allShow lessMVRDV Exhibits Furniture Series “Vertical Village” at Milan Design WeekArchitecture NewsComplex House / Tomohiro HataSelected Projects Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMOB architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAthensHousesGreecePublished on April 08, 2014Cite: “House in Chalandri / MOB architects” 08 Apr 2014.

Located in a privileged area, surrounded by woods yet close to Guatemala city, Chinkara house is presented as a dual housing, which explores the contrast between nature and man-made; the primitive and the modern.Save this picture!© Marko BradichThe house is imagined as a rock located on the ground, an ethereal element organized from the contours of the site. It contains an art gallery, an intimate contemplation space, a container of experiences embodied in the various works of art that make it up. This rock volume is sculpted in a way that allows overhead lighting and views from the different environments to the natural landscape.Save this picture!© Marko BradichThis stone volume serves as the heart of the building, around which the different rooms of the house adhere, penetrate, or overlap, each contained within different white volumes wrapped in ACM, an artificial material, which opposed to the stone symbolizes the intervention of man in the natural setting of the project. As a result, the residence reads like a harmonious composition between soil, stone and man.Save this picture!PlanEven when the house can be read as a mass composition of volumes, inside, each room retains a residential, intimate, human scale. The warmth of wood on the floor, the rustic stone, the height of the rooms and their ornamentation reinforce the idea of the good life, constantly inviting residents to contemplation and intimacy.Save this picture!© Marko BradichThis introverted notion of the project is contrasted with the experience of the house to the landscape. Except for the art gallery, each of the rooms that make up the house is contained in a defined volume, which opens outward, integrating the richness of nature with the experiences contained within the house. Large windows in bright red, which are embedded in the volumes that make up the building, denote this intention to frame the landscape from within.Save this picture!DetailOutside, the house reads as a set of windows that expose its interior spaces, as well as the experiences of its inhabitants day to day; inside, all activities of the residents are ornamented by a natural background, consisting of different species of trees, animals and sounds from outside.Save this picture!© Marko BradichUltimately, Chinkara House is more than a home, it is an intermediary between the natural and the artificial; the intimate and the external; the massive and impressive, with the residential and everyday.Save this picture!© Marko BradichProject gallerySee allShow lessSV House / Luciano Kruk ArquitectosSelected ProjectsCTBUH Names One Central Park “Best Tall Building Worldwide” for 2014Architecture News Share Houses Architectural Design: Mauricio Solís Interior Design:Joanna de GoyzuetaProject Manager:Roberto MelgarCollaborators:Eddy López, Gustavo Lima, Francisco Velázquez, Jeremías Calmo, Diego CastilloCity:Guatemala CityCountry:GuatemalaMore SpecsLess Specs Architects: Solis Colomer Arquitectos Photographs ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/565689/chinkara-house-solis-colomer-arquitectos Clipboard Chinkara House / Solis Colomer Arquitectoslast_img read more

PivotText description provided by the architects. The project site involves an old country house, built in 1887 in the immediate neighborhood of Lucca and a most recent farmhand’s cottage. The buildings are integrated in the countryside of Lucca and maintain its typical characteristics. Specifically, the buildings are located in a hilly landscape, between gentle slopes, where oaks and chestnuts lick the property. In this background, the renovation has been directed to both the maintenance and the enhancement of typical elements of the local architecture, such as exposed brick wall, stone of Matraia and chestnut wood. Pursuing this goal, and in full respect of the typical features, the components and materials used have been revised in a contemporary way, adopting the most appropriate construction techniques, in order to ensure the achievement of the best possible result.Save this picture!DetailInside the country house we sought to manually apply, using the traditional spatulas and sponges, natural lime-based plasters that highlight the irregular rocky surface of the walls. The recovery of beams and hollow tiles by sandblasting, is an explicit call to the traditional tuscan architecture, refreshed by the bleaching of the ceilings.Save this picture!© Alessandra BelloThe exterior was deliberately kept unchanged in surface and holes, in order to maintain its historicity without sacrificing the charm. Therefore, we opted for basic external fixtures made of steel. In the garden the large swimming pool is integrated with the surrounding landscape, respecting the vegetation and the secular olive trees, leaved unaltered. The adjacent cottage has been completely renovated inside, opting for contemporary materials and colors: the concrete floor and the black lavatory contribute to give a new identity to the building. Finally, in the hypogeum you can find a spa area consisting of a large tub and a cedar wood sauna.Save this picture!© Alessandra BelloProject gallerySee allShow lessPaul Goldberger: “Frank Gehry Really Doesn’t Want To Be Remembered as Somebody Who J…PublicationsThe World’s Largest Current Construction ProjectsInfographics Share Save this picture!© Alessandra Bello+ 34 Share CopyHouses•Bolognana, Italy Manufacturers: Palladio Architects: MIDE architetti Area Area of this architecture project Country House Renovation / Mide ArchitettiSave this projectSaveCountry House Renovation / Mide Architetti “COPY” LUCCAEDIL Year:  ArchDaily Italy Area:  320 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Construction Company: Country House Renovation / Mide Architetti 2015 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/778061/country-house-renovation-mide-architetti Clipboard Houses CopyAbout this officeMIDE architettiOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBolognanaItalyPublished on December 02, 2015Cite: “Country House Renovation / Mide Architetti” 02 Dec 2015.

Over the years, Hanoi has been spontaneously developing and tube house has become a popular style in this city: the houses stand beside each other, deep in narrow alleys, layer like sardines. The typical tube houses  “designed” by word of mouth or based on the experiences of the builders, with “stairs in the middle, two rooms on two sides”, which always have poor lighting, lack of ventilation with high humidity, are too familiar with most people living in urban areas of Vietnam.Save this picture!© Hoang Le Photography 3×10 was once that type of house, ultil Client met and discussed with architect about their requirements.Save this picture!SectionAfter design and construction, the first impression of the house is probably the cleanliness and light overflowing insideSave this picture!© Hoang Le Photography“Each project grants us different feelings and solving experiences.

It is a design plan which suggests method to live efficiently and affluently with sharing three generations in one house. I have thought the moment when I encountered client for the first time. The client planned to build a house for leaving children and children who go to studying abroad, grandchild’s favorable color that is pink without attention about question, “why do you make house in which two people will live so largely?”, and with intention which they can live together, provided they have place to live. Save this picture!© Sun NamgoongSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Sun NamgoongHouse is located near Mt. Gwanggyo that is situated on the West of Suji, Yongin-si. Site has been constructed with 4 meter higher than the front road, which is a place where Low Mountain on the South is spread and nature communication very tasteful. Due to law’s restriction of natural greens area (20% of the building to land ratio), it has been planned to build 3rd floor which has been unused in current detached house by suggesting space that generation can share in cross section rather than spreading on one floor. With this site condition, the first floor will be made for parents’ residential space and all family’s space, and the second floor made for leaving children and children who go to studying abroad, which independent residence is possible. With the intervening space in cross section, it can make connection between parents and their children to communicate actively by raising and failing through stairs. The third floor will be created for space (Library and AV room) in which family members can share according to their life style, so that it will make them experience various life values. Save this picture!© Sun NamgoongOuter volume of the house can make indentations by coming in and out instead of not located in straight line, and this composite comes to each floor with various expressions. Small garden will be made on the first floor which is connected to yard, and space between the second and third floor made to connect with balcony, add depth in the space at the same time while separating function, and attract communication between human and human or human and nature. Save this picture!SectionDaughter and son who doubted for this plan have really expressed their desire to live in the house together after the completion. It is a piece of good news. Single and double households have been increased and living pattern in Korea has been changed due to appearance of “Single Korea”. However, different generations that have different life style will become one family under the same roof through direct and indirect experience.  Save this picture!© Sun NamgoongProject gallerySee allShow lessMaison 0.82 / PASCUAL ArchitecteSelected ProjectsAkas Villa / Black Pencils StudioSelected Projects Share Eun Structural Engineering “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/867483/trio-house-axis-architects Clipboard Area:  202 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project C.G Engineering & Consulting Co.Ltd. 2016 Construction: MEP Engineer: Dongkyoung Civil Engineer: Houses CopyAbout this officeAXIS ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYongin-siSouth KoreaPublished on March 23, 2017Cite: “Trio House / AXIS Architects” 22 Mar 2017.

Located at the foot of Culardoch (‘the big back place’), and looking out across the remote expanse of upper Glen Gairn, it plays simultaneously off the informality and romanticism of a Scottish hill walkers’ “howff”, farmer’s shieling or Swiss alpine shack, and the humanism and cleanliness of 20th century modernists such as Aalto.Save this picture!© Ben AddyLike Le Corbusier’s Notre Dame du Haut, its windows appear haphazardly placed – varying in size and orientation. But, they carefully let in the right amount of light and view while maintaining an enveloping sense of seclusion and security. Sitting at the end of the table the view through each window frames a specific aspect of the landscape; a bend in the River Gairn, the grassy flood plain, the water of Allt Bad a’Mhonaich tumbling down the side of Ben Avon, the massive granite tors on the summit plateau. Its exteriors and interiors both clad in wood, with the overhanging eaves of its cruck frame roof dipping low, and the roof itself covered in moss and stone.Save this picture!Section AThe hut was commissioned as an escape, for small gatherings or parties, lunches or dinners, fitting a very long and narrow table.

Alella is a municipality located between the Mediterranean Sea and the coastal mountain range: in a relatively short distance, the orography of the territory rises from the sea level to 400 meters high. Due to this situation, sloping areas were historically organized on terraces stabilized with stonewalls, to be cultivated. The territory outside the urban nucleus was structured by means of large farms, where large houses with different architectural, landscape, social and heritage interests were built in each one of them; those who gave name to each one of the zones that occupied. Subsequently, during the 20th century, the demographic pressure and the change in the economy led to the appearance of several urbanizations that meant the fragmentation of the territory.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe housing lot is located in an enclave between a fragmented and consolidated area with recently built buildings and another area occupied by a historical estate of the ones described above. So that it transitions between a landscape before the 20th century and another one of the present century. In its initial state, the lot presents a composition more typical of the historical landscape than fragmented. Being stabilized horizontally by means of three longitudinal containment walls – north / south direction – of three meters of height each, that structure the terrain on three terraces. It also contains an old dry stone chapel and a series of vegetation and consolidated own trees, with an interest in being conserved.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaMaintaining the original character of the place becomes the main project premise. To preserve the soul and the morphology, to preserve each one of those things that make it unique and characteristic: the terraces, the retaining walls, the different elements of pre-existing vegetation and the dry stone chapel. These elements are delimited and identified to be preserved in the plant and once they have been delimited, a respectful implementation of housing directly on the existing land is established, so that the house coexists and interacts spatially and functionally with these elements. The resulting ensemble seeks to be a whole, timeless and heterogeneous, that is part of the place and the landscape. Likewise, it is proposed to naturalize the unbuilt spaces and rehabilitate and re-landscape landscaping.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe housing program consists of a living room, dining room, kitchen, rooms, studios, bathrooms, cinema, wellness area, parking for vehicles and spaces for storage, services and facilities; with a constructed surface resulting from 869m2, and therefore, a size more typical of the old stately houses existing in the municipality of Alella than of the houses built in the last half century. Due to the dimensions of the program, a strategy of implementation and hybrid landscape integration is included which includes two concepts: harmonization and monumentalization. The harmonization in terms of using the same stone in the area with which the chapel is made to finish pre-existing retaining walls, plant new Mediterranean vegetation in line with the existing one and place wood and stone together with elements of water. And the monumentalization to create a monolithic structure of reinforced concrete, punctually supported by steel pillars and lime mortar lined with the will to be a Mediterranean sculpture that emerges from a natural field that maintains its historical roots.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaWhen analyzing the program and the size of the housing required, the volumetry is implemented through two floors in each preexisting terrace, concentrating the larger volumetrics on the two lower terraces, so that the terrace most visually exposed has the smaller volumetry. The house is structured in four differentiated levels: 181, 184, 187 and 190. The floor level 181 contains parking, wellness space, and storage areas; the floor level 184 contains the day zone; the floor level 187 contains the night area and the floor level 190 contains a study that connects with a green terrace. Each one of the rooms focuses on the different visuals that the landscape offers: the sea, the valley, the olive fields and the small neighbouring pond. As for the pre-existing stonewalls, once rehabilitated and covered with dry stone from the area, they go through the house coinciding with the most relevant spaces. The covers are landscaped with varying degrees of inclination, with the intention of visually collecting the landscape, pretending to be part of it and also pretending that from a bird sight the presence of the house is not perceived, but rather a completely naturalized terrain.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe housing structure itself provides solutions of passive solar architecture, through porches of different dimensions and pergolas of wooden beams on the southern facade. Rainwater from landscaped covers is collected in buried deposits and reused for irrigation of the unbuilt garden area. In addition, the house integrates a system of air conditioning through aerothermal technology and double-flow ventilation, which, together with the natural thermal insulation of the covers, the home automation installation, the construction system itself and the exhaustive study of the composition of the different skins of the building; they have made this house to have obtained an energy certification A.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe equipment of the house is resolved by incorporating integrated furniture that enhances the spaces in which it is part. Regarding the final materiality, it is proposed that this generates a cozy, friendly and connected home with the outside. Made with openings and pavement with stony texture that goes through the house from outside to inside and from inside to outside, and the use of neutral colours and warm wood for the rest of the materials.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessBoathouse / Buero WagnerSelected ProjectsHouse with 6 annexes / Kiyoaki Takeda ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Casa VN / Guillem Carrera Projects Photographs:  Adrià Goula Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeGuillem CarreraOfficeFollowProductsGlassStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlellaSpainPublished on February 13, 2019Cite: “Casa VN / Guillem Carrera” [Casa VN / Guillem Carrera] 13 Feb 2019.

The DaB House is conceived in a lot of limited dimensions on the outskirts of the city of Buenos Aires, in a green and open environment. The main challenge of the project was to generate an architectural tour that interacts with the materials and the light in contrast with the formal search of a very compact layout to optimize the square meters.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!© Federico CairoliThe program has been organized on two floors. On the ground floor, the social areas are located, which have a direct relationship with the garden, therefore they connect in a comprehensive and dynamic way by means of a wooden joint that acts as a nucleus assembling the space between both levels. On the upper floor, the private areas are located, which have a relation with the terrace-garden that acts as a viewpoint and as a space for contemplation of nature.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliWhen addressing the project, a very important aspect was the synthesis of materials with the aim of generating a sensory tour, provided by selected materials. A concrete base enables that a pure volume of bricks is placed on it. The connection between both levels is generated by a void along with a wooden nucleus. Iron, the last element, acts as a sieve to regulate the entry of light in the spaces.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Federico CairoliThe use of noble materials with its pure and simple lines enables that light and nature act as protagonists and provides us a timeless project. In this project, the light, one of the main architectural materials, was used in a direct and indirect way. Every single space has been thought out bearing in mind its natural lighting and the possibility to generate diverse atmospheres with different shades thanks to it.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliThe light is regulated by steel filters in the access, where the generated shades change throughout the day. In the living and dining room, imposing openings that open towards the garden enable the entry of light and a direct connection with nature. On the upper floor, a series of iron sunshades was generated to block the strongest sun of North and West.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliThe duality of architecture and landscape is a concept that we have taken into account when it came to generating volumes that enable its integration with the place by means of filled spaces and voids. Another decision that provides us such an approach to nature is the use of terrace-gardens and the incorporation of patios and skylights on the upper floor, where each space has a connection with it.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSustainability has been worked out from every aspect, starting with the selection of the terrain and the implantation in it bearing in mind its orientations and predominant winds. Then, the usage of a green roof with all the benefits that it provides. Other points that were taken into account were the reduction in water consumption by using rainwater for irrigation and the usage of energy-saving appliances. Heating and cooling were provided by geothermal energy.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliAll the spaces were carefully thought out so that they have natural light, exterior views and cross-ventilation, therefore generating a benefit not only regarding energy but also regarding comfort for its habitation. The landscape was designed based on sustainable premises that make an important contribution to urban ecology as from the use of local species, so we built a micro-urban patch made by native plant communities.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Kashiwa / Yamazaki Kentaro Design WorkshopSelected ProjectsHouse Between Trees / Ateliê de Arquitetura LíquidaSelected Projects Share “COPY” DaB House / BAM! arquitectura DaB House / BAM! arquitecturaSave this projectSaveDaB House / BAM! arquitecturalast_img read more

The building is located on a quiet street in the neighborhood of Villa Urquiza, limited by edges that generate two rail lines with a focus on Coghlan and Drago stations.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianIt is a thriving neighborhood that demolitions for the construction of the highway could not make disappear, characterized by its diverse typologies – from old houses of one and two floors to high apartment buildings – quiet, tree-lined streets next to rapid transit and fluid avenues. The building responds to the environment with a distinctly contemporary appearance.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe proposal has its starting point in another building by our office built on the same street, just 50 meters away. Taking it as a starting point, Le Breton II, as we like to call it, has certain typologies of its predecessor and also incorporates 3 types of houses with gardens of different areas. They are grouped into two blocks divided by a large central courtyard with an open circulation core. The apartments overlooking the street are studio, two and three-bedroom units, and two penthouses with terrace. The block to the back has 3 houses on the ground floor with their own garden and a penthouse on the third floor with a large terrace and pool. These typologies are trying to maintain the character of the houses in the neighborhood but within the comforts of a collective housing complex.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!Plan Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe materials and finishes try to reinforce the idea of the structure as language: the structural concrete is exposed, unpainted, appealing to different types of formwork for light to highlight the different finishes. Large glass panels from floor to ceiling with aluminum frames, interior, and exterior black plastering make up the finishes. The incorporation of wood as an exterior language of the rear block, gives the building a particular and modern warmth, in contrast to the block in front, creating a friendly dialogue between them and the surrounding environment.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianOriginally published on May 19, 2015.Project gallerySee allShow lessMalva House / Bloco ArquitetosSelected ProjectsH Saket House / Sahel AlHiyari ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Tomás A.

Röhrig House / Studio Hertweck

The Röhrig House is part of a series of hillside houses designed by Studio Hertweck in the German Rhine Valley. It is located on a steep slope on the edge of the buildable land of Sinzig-Westum, a German municipality between Bonn and Koblenz. The client, a young family with one child, wanted to have generous interior and exterior shared areas, in combination with a rather classical program: two children’s bedrooms, a home office, a parents’ bedroom, and two bathrooms.Save this picture!© Bildpark / Veit LandwehrIn order to translate this program in an economic way, Studio Hertweck has inscribed a very simple cube into the slope. Garage and storage rooms were accommodated on the ground floor, the children’s bedrooms with a bathroom on the first floor. On the second floor, an open living area was created, which opens onto a terrace towards the valley and at the back onto a garden. On the third floor, the architect located the parents’ area with their bedroom, bathroom, and home office.Save this picture!© Bildpark / Veit LandwehrSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Bildpark / Veit LandwehrThe garden has been connected to the roof terrace by a set of terraces and outside stairs so that people can walk around the house while opening up beautiful views of the landscape. The reduction in terms of materials and the use of unfinished double-shell in-situ concrete walls not only has aesthetic value but also enabled the architect to dispense with some trades such as plastering or scaffolding.Save this picture!© Bildpark / Veit LandwehrSave this picture!© Bildpark / Veit LandwehrTo push the economy of the project even further, Studio Hertweck designed a single shaft in the center of the cube which contains all the networks of the house: from electric cables to water pipes, from the chimney flue to the laundry chute. All the technical appliances and sanitary equipment are arranged around this shaft so that they can be connected exclusively to it. The house is designed so that there are no thermal bridges and is heated by an air-water heat pump. Save this picture!© Bildpark / Veit LandwehrProject gallerySee allShow lessHashim Sarkis: “I Do Not Think We Have Ever Witnessed a Moment Where We Have Relied …ArticlesSANAA Designs Art Gallery of New South Wales Expansion in SydneyArchitecture News Share Area:  182 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeStudio HertweckOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookSinzigGermanyPublished on October 14, 2020Cite: “Röhrig House / Studio Hertweck” 14 Oct 2020.

Their report, Taking the Pulse of Americans’ Attitudes Toward Charities, reveals that Americans expressed high confidence in nearly all charitable organizations such as youth development groups (72%) and human service agencies (68%). In contrast only 29% had high confidence in major corporations, 27% in federal government, and 22% in Congress.Nevertheless, many Americans still mistrust charities’ financial acumen: 32% of Americans believe that charities are wasteful in their use of donated funds. This is represents a slight improvement, as the figure stood at 39% in 1994. Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
