Forget gold! I’d invest in dividend stocks today to make a million

first_img Gold has become increasingly popular among investors over recent months. A variety of risks such as coronavirus, geopolitical uncertainty in the Middle East and US political challenges have contributed to many investors becoming increasingly risk averse. As such, they have become more positive about defensive assets such as gold.While in the short run those risks could persist, they may provide a buying opportunity for long-term investors. As such, now could be the right time to avoid gold while it trades at a high price, and invest in undervalued dividend shares. They may increase your chances of making a million in the coming years.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…Potential challengesThe impact of coronavirus on the world economy’s growth rate is a known unknown. At the time of writing, investors are becoming increasingly cautious about the near-term outlook for the global economy, with supply chains and consumer demand in many major industries expected to decline in the short run.As a result, many investors may continue to purchase gold. It has a long history of being an effective store of wealth, and has often outperformed other major assets during times of economic distress. This may help to push the gold price even higher in the short run, although this is highly dependent on the ultimate impact of the aforementioned risks which face the world economy.Buying opportunitySimilarly, share prices may continue to fall in the short run. Investors could decide that after a decade-long bull market, now is the right time to take profits on their holdings, which may lead to a depressed period for the stock market.However, in many cases, a deterioration in the performance of the world economy during 2020 may already have been priced in. Across a variety of sectors, many stocks currently trade on low ratings compared to their historic averages, which provides investors with a wide margin of safety. In the long run, this could mean that the potential for capital growth is higher than it normally would be, while high dividend yields may offer an impressive income return at the present time.Income opportunitiesBuying dividend shares right now may offer much more than just a high income return. The past performance of the stock market shows that the reinvestment of dividends has contributed a large proportion of its total return. Therefore, focusing your capital on undervalued income shares could be a sound means of not only boosting your short-term income compared to other assets such as cash and bonds, it may also lead to an impressive rise in your portfolio’s valuation in the long run.Furthermore, investor sentiment has always improved following previous stock market downturns. This time is unlikely to be different, which means that the current popularity of gold may not last over the long run. Therefore, investing in dividend shares could be a better means of seeking to make a million than buying the precious metal.

Morning in middle America

first_img An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Martinsville, VA Charles Smith says: This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 April 28, 2012 at 8:48 am A few points you may wish to consider.Racial tensions. There are certainly at least two sides to every coin; so far, I’ve read at least half a dozen media reports of attacks on whites where the perpetrators have indicated their actions had been taken as “justice” over Trayon Martin. This is particularly interesting, as Zimmerman is a Latino with, again, according to news reports, some black roots. As one of the Neo-Nazis who went to Florida to patrol the streets put it, this is not our fight, other than to protect our people. Let the [blacks] and [Latinos] fight it out. Yet, it is “revenge” violence that is being directed at an ethnic group that wasn’t even involved. Racial tensions should hardly be a surprise .The state government of Kansas was put there by the voters. Regardless if whatever you think of the folks who are willing to put their money where their mouths are in supporting their beliefs, you might recognize that folk like George Soros do the same thing on the other side of the coin. What I find objectionable is the premise that one set of beliefs is automatically the right one. You might give consideration to the fact that ECUSA as a national force is slowly dying on the vine and that parishes are becoming increasingly congregational, in part due to how the national church engages in the political process.Another fallacy is your expectation that if people did not spend their dollars on events like a NASCAR race, those funds would automagically go to whatever cause you wished. That’s not how the society works. People will spend funds in excess of meeting their basic needs as they see fit, and some of that will go to recreational activities. You might also consider that such activity creates a number of jobs. Many venues are located in inner city areas, where many of those jobs – admittedly, service jobs, not career positions – go to lower income people.In short, you do not present much of a path to move forward. There is a need for give and take on both sides of the coin, but all I see in your blog entry extremely one – and short – sighted. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID April 25, 2012 at 5:42 pm As a resident just a few miles from the race way you describe and as recent and now former Vicar of St. Paul’s Kansas City, KS, I can affirm your description of what you observed. While, as you suggest, the total, local picture is complex (spend time in Johnson, Co., and you will see a large area that is still very successful and in the top ten counties nationally of about any demographic you can find), the overall is a tense combination of hope and discomfort to out-and-out fear. The deep pathology of nostalgia, of an idyllic past Kansas, propels reactionary elements. However, the real past in Kansas was unmistakably a healthy combination of economic conservatism, moderate social and great educational progressiveness. As well, though, I know how the deep racism of the nation is reflected in our local circumstances, especially as it relates to younger to middle aged black males. The Episcopal Church here finds itself in the deep center of all the negative and positive forces, the problem of which that, like being in the eye of a storm, any slight direction one moves there is some form of turmoil and perturbation. Our mission may be, as you suggest, to accept our modest position of Anglican consciousness, gracefully empowering us to name all the conflicting elements, to be steady and available with compassion toward one another as the forces far greater than we play out. As a result some days here, and probably where you live, are better than others. . . in prayer, worship and mission. Submit a Press Release April 26, 2012 at 2:20 pm A rather busy weekend if you saw the theocrats in Wichita (which is over 100 miles southwest of Topeka), the Kansas Speedway (nearly fifty miles east of Topeka), networked with dozens of fellow religious leaders and took the time to monitor local police scanners.Perhaps your mood can be chalked up to drive-related exhaustion and just trying to do too much?

I gazed at the sycamore tree out front, where in 1966 I watched as three black girls waited anxiously in the shade for a ride after school. They were the first to integrate our school, and neither of us knew quite what to make of each other. I never saw an ugly incident and very few occured. As children, we adapted well. But now the sycamore is delimbing prematurely. At the same time, my lunch companion is extolling the efforts of our Legislature to reinforce our anti-immigration law, to divert tax revenue from education to industry recruitment, to tighten restrictions on who can vote, etc. I wonder – How is this happening? What is causing the stench that is so strong as to stain our character? As the sycamore which provided shelter for those nervous school girls dies before my eyes, so seems the advance of humanity. We are all in Kansas now.

I felt exhausted by the rigors of modern air travel, in which things work OK but are relentlessly uncomfortable and demeaning.But mainly I felt disoriented, like after a sleepless night. In Topeka I had seen the future of America, and it worried me.I saw racial tensions still high 58 years after Brown v. (Topeka) Board of Education outlawed segregated public schools, but also launched “white flight” to the suburbs. In one of those suburbs, a watchful neighbor recently called police when he saw a black man walking out front. It turned out the black pedestrian was a neighbor living nearby.I saw state government in the hands of right-wing ideologues being bankrolled by the Koch brothers of Wichita. These sanctimonious evangelicals are rushing to curb freedoms and opportunity for all but a few.I saw end-of-empire circuses, like the Kansas Motor Speedway hosting a major NASCAR race, alongside unmistakable signs of economic decay, such as crumbling streets, rising unemployment, steadily declining home values, vacant storefronts, and empty parking lots. The speedway just added a $380 million casino and hotel.I don’t speak against Topeka, for the city seemed charming in many respects. But what I experienced there crystallized perceptions I have had throughout recent travels across the U.S.Except for pockets of energy and optimism, the prevailing atmosphere seems new and yet worn, busy and yet listless, like a house that was built quickly and doesn’t survive its first owners. I see worry, frustration, and a mounting sense of a dream stolen.Things are especially bad for African-Americans — an unemployment rate that’s twice that of whites, a median family income that’s one-20th that of whites, plus underfunded and underperforming public schools.I don’t want to overstate. I also see much that is good, encouraging, and fresh. I just sense a balance shifting, like a herd that is getting restless and might signal a storm coming.As right-wing ideologues try to turn this very dissatisfaction and frustration into a power grab, progressive Christians find themselves both a target and a much-needed voice.We need to stay awake as the darkness of gloom and repression looms. We need to feel the despair surging around us and understand it as a call to mission. We need to stay with our neighbors, even as they retreat to circuses. We need to speak truth to power, even as well-funded power strikes back.Maybe the place for us to start is with race relations, the persistent agony of American life.As I drove across Kansas, I listened on the car radio to a young historian’s detailed account of Brown v. Board of Education. As she moved forward to 2012, I realized this wasn’t just a history lecture, but an explanation of daily life for black residents of Topeka and elsewhere. As she described the strategies of leaders like Thurgood Marshall to change the law of the land, she also told of relentless efforts by whites to subvert that law.The stain of racial inequalities just doesn’t go away. It exemplifies the corrosion of character and freedom that I have been seeing.— Tom Ehrich is a writer, church consultant and Episcopal priest based in New York.

Ronald L. Reed says: Youth Minister Lorton, VA April 27, 2012 at 3:38 pm The article by Tom Ehrich and the reply from old friend Ron Reed moved me considerably to reply and comment. As a native Kansan, and a “son of the diocese of Kansas” and having lived and worked there, both as a teacher in public school and as a priest, I resonate with most everything in this post. I do not make many sojourns back to my home state as my family members, save a few cousins, have either died or moved away. Some have come to Oregon, where I now live, finding the progressive (really at times libertarian) ways of Portland and environs much more to their liking and preferences.I grew up in the old “segregated” days where public schools in Wichita were not integrated until high school, but do remember well 1954 and Brown vs. Topeka. Moving briefly to Newton, some 20 miles north, when in 3rd grade, I found for the first time that blacks and Hispanics who were in my class, were potential friends. In high school, back in Wichita, the African Americans of my acquaintance were fun to be with and to study with. No problems there, but we were separated by the parts of town we lived in, the churches we worshipped in and the social demographics.The Episcopal Church had a very tepid presence in Wichita and the Bishop, in the 60s, closed St. Augustine’s Mission, located in a strategic part of the “ghetto” which could have, potentially speaking, been a beacon of hope. People tried to make it work, but the bishop’s plan to “integrate” the other parishes barely worked. At my mother’s funeral in 2009 at the largest parish in town, St. James, I was proud to be led into our family’s pew by a black man and to see some of my mom’s black friends there from the parish. But, sadly, there aren’t very many people of color there.So, what’s to become of Kansas, as well as other places like it? I don’t know, but I pray hard and I work for justice and peace as best I can with what feebleness I can offer. BTW, there is no all-African American church in Kansas any more. In Ron’s former parish, St. Paul’s, Kansas City, KS, the old Ascension Church (African American) merged; when I visited there in 2007, it was good to see some of their furnishings in Ascension Chapel at St. Paul’s and to worship with a very integrated congregation in that city that reminded me so much of a mini-Detroit as I drove around.We need, all of us, to pray and work hard to assure that our Church is open and welcoming to all, and to see to it that the eradication of racism within our boundaries is a high priority.Peace and love to all.

A low-cost public cottage for locals and visitors, located within a beech woods park, within a region with the heaviest snowfall in Japan, often as deep as 4m. It was an architecture in that two volumes were combined.Save this picture!© Koji FujiiOne, outward form Big Box. It was determined as the maximum volume possible from the budget with local details for withstanding heavy snow without maintenance in the winter, when the cottage becomes isolated. The big volume also enables comfortable stay in the summer. The other is named Tube. There the essential functions for habitation were placed in a row.Tube is complicatedly bent by the restriction of Big Box, and Big Box is cut irregularly by the bent Tube. The gap between both generates an unexpected space.Save this picture!© Koji FujiiThe contrast of colors or activities between both offer different vantages for seeing the woods.The exterior gives similar impression to the local houses, which the people are used to seeing. So, they aren’t conscious of it: a consideration to the fact that the site is within a park. Save this picture!Detailed SectionAt the same time, it is not the same but delicately different in the degree that they cannot recognize its difference when they observe in detail. It is an attitude for designing the new architecture in the region with mature context. Stepping to the interior, the impression changes.

Lauded for its wide, tree-lined streets and distinct character; North Fitzroy has emerged as a destination for innovative vertical living. Nth FITZROY By Milieu – a carefully considered collaboration between progressive urban developer Milieu, architecture practice Fieldwork and interior design wunderkind Flack Studio – finds respectful equilibrium amongst the storied architecture of one of Melbourne’s most historic suburbs.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerSitting at the epicentre of North Fitzroy’s rich cafe culture; a short walk from Rathdowne Village’s epicurean retailers, the live music, restaurant and bar scene of Brunswick Street, and the lush green enclave of Carlton and Edinborough Gardens, this four level, 26 apartment, vertical community is an innovative example of Milieu’s commitment to contributing spaces of influence.Save this picture!© Sean FennessyNotable for a facade cloaked in expanded metal mesh and integrated, operable shutters that allow the building to breathe, Nth FITZROY’s unique exterior not only allows occupants to influence their outlook but affords the passer by an ever-changing kaleidoscope of configurations.Save this picture!© Sean FennessyHere, Fieldwork’s philosophy of practicing architecture as a living form is palpable.“Architecture should be agile and enduring. As designers we’re sensitive to the evolving needs of its inhabitants. We believe architecture is a sensitive, spatial practice from which the entirety of life unfolds” Fieldwork located in nearby Collingwood.Save this picture!© Sean FennessyThe mesh hull is thoughtfully protean, designed to deliver both form and function. It enhances the building’s thermal performance by creating shade and reducing heat on glazed surfaces, whilst acting as a conduit for diffused sunlight that creates a natural play of light and shadow throughout the day. The occupants need for privacy doesn’t diminish the external vantage as, come nightfall, the warm filtered glow from within invokes a sense of candlelit congeniality. Shutters can be opened and closed in tune with the fluctuation of the weather and season to access natural airflow and light.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!DiagramInside, Flack Studio’s judicious selection of textured and high quality materials and finishes has created tactile living space with seductive aesthetic qualities. Natural stone in the kitchens and bathrooms, and fine detailing and accents throughout each residence achieve a harmonious and polished finish. Clever storage solutions are intuitively designed and made to maximise living space; the sense of space reinforced by 2.8 metre high exposed concrete ceilings.Save this picture!© Sean FennessyApartments are connected via a central open-air atrium with shared walkways, greenery and communal areas. Designed to cultivate well being and offer the opportunity for social exchange, the atrium also affords further cross flow ventilation.At ground level, Nth FITZROY’s corner site aims to embraces its local community, bringing together occupants and local residents alike at Lagotto Corner and Food Store, due to open in April 2019. Reinvigorating the prominent local thoroughfare, Lagotto designed by Flack Studio will encourage connection through the simple act of picking up a takeaway coffee, or perhaps a lovingly prepared take home meal for those nights when cooking is simply not an option. Lagotto will be the third venue for Milieu Hospitality following Congress in Collingwood and Future Future in Richmond.Save this picture!© Sean FennessyMilieu continues to be inspired by the physical and social setting of Melbourne. This, partnered with Fieldwork’s commitment to a more environmentally conscious world and Flack Studio’s desire to transform vision into experiences, has resulted in Nth FITZROY – a refined multi residential development in which functionality nurtures connection and sustainable well being.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerProject gallerySee allShow lessJishou Art Museum / Atelier FCJZSelected ProjectsHouse for Trees / VTN ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/916342/nth-fitzroy-by-milieu-fieldwork-design-and-architecture Clipboard Projects ArchDaily Flack Studio Photographs Save this picture!© Rory Gardiner+ 46Curated by Martita Vial Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/916342/nth-fitzroy-by-milieu-fieldwork-design-and-architecture Clipboard “COPY” “COPY”last_img read more

When Visiting State Fair, Chat with Featured Farmers

first_img SHARE Previous articleHow to Plan for an Equipment PurchaseNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter When Visiting State Fair, Chat with Featured Farmers SHARE Facebook Twitter Gillis-family-at-the-fairFor the third year different Indiana farmers and commodities are being featured each of the seventeen days of the Indiana State Fair. Presented by Dow AgroSciences, the Featured Farmers chat about their operation each afternoon at 2:30 in the Glass Barn. It’s fitting in the year of the Wonderful World of Food that the farmers who grow that food are featured. Elaine Gillis, from a soybean farm family featured on the first day of the fair, told HAT it was an honor to be selected.“It’s a little overwhelming,” she said. “I don’t think we knew what to expect or how we got here. There’s a lot of big shoes to fill from previous years’ Featured Farmers, so we’re excited to represent soybeans today and hopefully we’ll represent soybean farmers all over very well.”Elaine’s husband Craig Gillis added, “We’re excited to be here at the fair today and enjoy everything and represent farmers around Indiana.”Gillis said they farm in “Delaware County just north of Muncie about twenty minutes. We farm in Blackford, Jay and Delaware Counties where we raise corn and soybeans for our operation.”Craig’s brother Joe is enjoying his 40th year at the Indiana State Fair.“This is all new to me here,” he said. “I wasn’t expecting this at all, but it’s been a great honor and a great privilege to represent Indiana today.Over those forty years attending the fair Joe feels it’s always “a great family experience. You can come down here and do anything you want. 4-H is very popular obviously, and all the food and all the fun and other things that go along with it.”Elaine, who is on the board of the Indiana Soybean Alliance, hopes consumers attending the fair get an understanding that agriculture is a community effort.“What we grow and produce on the farm does go back into the community, and we’re all working together to help each other. So, as we come out here to ride rides, or look at exhibits, or look at animals or eat the fried food that’s here every day, all of that connects back to agriculture. And we as a family farm are proud to be able to provide that to our state and our communities.”The featured foods, farm operations and counties for all 17 days are:Deep Fried Food (August 4): Gillis family, Blackford CountyMelon (August 5): Horrall family, Knox CountyPopcorn (August 6): Scott family, White CountySalsa/Ketchup (August 7): Eck family, Shelby CountyEggs (August 8): Krouse family, Kosciusko CountyPork Burger (August 9): Foster family, Hancock CountyFunnel cake/wheat (August 10): Campbell family, Johnson CountyCheese (August 11): Kuehnert family, Allen CountyBeef (August 12): Mahan family, Rush CountyIce cream (August 13): van de Laar family, Adams CountyApples (August 14): Kercher family, Elkhart CountyMint (August 15): Lambert family, Starke CountyCorn Dog (August 16): Evans Burbrink family, Vigo CountyOn-A-Stick Day/hardwood (August 17): Leibering Family, Spencer CountyTurkey leg (August 18): Humphrey family, Washington CountyPickles (August 19): Lawler family, Hancock CountyHoney (August 20): Graham family, Morgan County“Food is the number one reason people attend the State Fair, so what better way to celebrate than by honoring the Hoosier Farmers who produce the food we eat,” said Cindy Hoye, Executive Director, Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center.

Call for release on bail of editor Lewis Medjo who has been sentenced to three years in jail

first_img May 19, 2021 Find out more Cameroonian journalist Paul Chouta sentenced and fined in defamation case Organisation May 31, 2021 Find out more News News CameroonAfrica Reporters Without Borders today condemned a three-year prison sentence handed down to Lewis Medjo, managing editor of the weekly La Détente libre, and urged the authorities to allow him bail. He has been in Douala central prison in the west of the country since 22 September 2008.Medjo was found guilty on 7 January of “spreading false news” and sentenced by the Douala court to three years in prison and a fine of two million CFA francs (more than 3,000 euros) in connection with the publication on 7 August 2008, of an article headlined “Thunderbolt at the Supreme Court: Biya fires Dipanda Mouelle”. This referred to an alleged move by the head of state, Paul Biya, to push the first president of the Supreme Court, Alexis Dipanda Mouelle, into taking early retirement in 2009.The newspaper has also established a further link between the arrest of the journalist and the appearance of another article published in August, headlined “”Mebe Ngo’o puts (Yves-Michel) Fotso’s passport up for auction”. This article referred to an alleged attempt to extort money from businessman Victor Fotso, father of Yves-Michel Fotso, also a businessman, with the collusion of Delegate General for National Security, Edgar Alain Mebe Ngo’o.“This latest sentence underlines the fact that African jurisdictions far too often respond to press offences by imprisoning journalists rather than through fairer and more appropriate solutions”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“Even if it is established that a libel has been committed, the very harsh penalty imposed on Lewis Medjo does no credit to the Cameroon justice system and does nothing to undo the harm suffered by the victim. The authorities should be aware that they are making a new martyr of him when they should be resolving this case by other means,” Lewis Medjo was arrested on 22 September 2008 and held in custody at the Littoral police division. He was then placed under arrest at Douala central prison on the orders of the public ministry, on 26 September. His trial was adjourned on several occasions for “administrative reasons”.
