first_img Royston Wild | Monday, 11th January, 2021 | More on: BEG WINE Top stocks for 2021! 2 UK shares I reckon will EXPLODE in value this year Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! UK share markets are back in retreat in Monday business. A fresh Covid-19 spike in China is the newest thing to fray investor nerves in what has proved to be a turbulent start to 2021.The outlook for the global economy remains fraught with danger. But it wont stop me as a UK share investor from continuing to buy for my Stocks and Shares ISA. There are still plenty of stocks that should thrive in 2021 despite the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. Here are a couple Id happily buy for my own shares portfolio today.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…#1. Naked WinesThe retail sector outlook remains pretty murky as weak economic conditions weigh on consumer confidence. But Naked Wines (LSE: WINE) is a UK share I’d happily invest in with my own hard-earned cash in an ISA.The alcohol vendor has two significant feathers in its cap that should allow it to keep growing profits. Firstly, Naked Wines has a sophisticated online-only model that will allow it to latch on to rocketing e-commerce activity to the max. Indeed, the longer Covid-19 lockdowns last, the better this particular share is likely to fare.Secondly, history shows us that sales of alcoholic drinks actually rise during periods of extreme economic and social upheaval. Fresh research from Mintel suggests that the alcoholic drinks sector grew at its fastest rate for a decade in 2020. Sales here rose 16.3% last year, it estimates, while broader UK consumer spending dropped around 15% year-on-year.It’s a trend that Naked Wines has witnessed across all its markets of the UK, US and Australia. And it propelled revenues 80% higher at the business in the six months to September, latest financials showed. This UK share rocketed 200% in value in 2020, and I’m expecting it to soar again in 2021.#2. Begbies TraynorInsolvency specialist Begbies Traynor Group (LSE: BEG) rose by a much, much more modest 2% during the course of last year. But I think the market has missed a trick here. The insolvency services specialist released a string of very strong trading updates during the course of 2020. And I’m expecting trade to get a lot busier at this UK share as the domestic economy struggles.Indeed, a report from the Federation of Small Businesses (or FSB) released today illustrates the catastrophe coming down the tracks for British business. The body predicts that a shocking 250,000 small businesses will fold in 2021. Its Small Business Index shows business confidence has plummeted amid a mix of Covid-19 pressure and Brexit disruption.Latest financials from Begbies Traynor in December illustrated the growing strain on these companies. The UK share said that revenues were up 11% in the six months to October. And it reported an “increased order book of committed future insolvency revenue” too. This is one UK share that should remain robust despite the tough economic outlook. 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.

Jeff W. Fisher[Episcopal News Service] The Rev. Jeff W. Fisher was elected on June 2 to be the bishop suffragan for the eastern region of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.Fisher was elected on the fourth ballot out of a field of two nominees. He received 230 votes of 391 cast in the lay order and 109 of 205 cast in the clergy order. An election on that ballot required 196 votes in the lay order and 103 in the clergy order.The election took place at Christ Church Cathedral in Houston.Because the election occurred within 120 days of the start of the 77th meeting of General Convention in Indianapolis July 4-12, Episcopal Church canons provide (in Canon III.11.3) for the required consents to be sought from the bishops and deputies at convention.Assuming that consent is received, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is scheduled to ordain Fisher on Oct. 6 at Caldwell Auditorium in Tyler, where the new bishop suffragan will be headquartered.Fisher, 48, has been rector of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Waco since 2006. Prior to that call, he was associate rector at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Cypress from 2004 to 2006. He was ordained deacon and priest in 2004 after earning a Master of Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary.Prior to entering ordained ministry, Fisher worked for Arthur Andersen in Houston, then for Hand Benefits & Trust, an employee benefit consulting firm in Houston, where he was the chief financial officer. He and his wife are the parents of two sons.His autobiographic statement and other biographical information is here.The other nominee was the Rev. Beth J. Fain, 60, rector of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Cypress.Texas Bishop C. Andrew Doyle announced his intention to call for the election at the Clergy Conference in October 2011. At the time he laid out his specific expectations for the bishop suffragan position as a regional bishop.A bishop suffragan serves under the leadership of the bishop diocesan, who frames his or her specific work, Doyle said. Among the duties of the new bishop will be the boards of St. James’ House, the diocesan retirement community in Baytown; All Saints’ School, Tyler; William Temple Center, Galveston and St. Vincent’s House, Galveston. The new bishop also will be responsible for pastoral care of the clergy and be the diocesan liaison to the Little Church Club, Episcopal Church Women, diocesan Altar Guild, Cursillo, Recovery Ministry, Brotherhood of St. Andrews, Faith Alive, Restorative Justice and have oversight of the Bishop Quin Sabbatical Grants.Fisher will join Doyle and Bishop Suffragan Dena A. Harrison in serving the diocese, which has more than 77,000 members in 151 congregations.

Church responds to widespread cyclone damage in Fiji

first_img Press Release Service Rector Albany, NY Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Photo: Anglican Missions Board[Anglican Alliance] The largest storm ever recorded in the region struck the islands of Fiji over the weekend, after causing widespread damage in Tonga. The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia is already working to assess the damage and begin its response.Cyclone Winston was described as the strongest recorded tropical storm in Fiji’s history, reaching category five storm level, with wind gusts up to 325km per hour and wave surges of up to 12m high.The damage is widespread but, with communications down, the full impact of the storm is not yet known. Media reports suggest up to 20 people have been killed and dozens more injured in the storm, as buildings collapsed and debris was thrown by the wind.Speaking with the Anglican Alliance, the Vicar General of the Diocese of Fiji, the Revd Orisi Vuki said: “The situation is very serious. Power is off in many places and so it is very difficult to contact our parishes and schools.”The priorities now are to make sure that people on the islands are safe and receive immediate assistance: food, water, shelter and medical care.The roads are reported to be bad. Water supplies have been affected as well as food crops, Orisi Vuki said.Many of the communities affected are on outer islands. With power and communication lines down, it currently difficult to get information.Fiji’s National Disaster Management Office reports that people have been evacuated from their homes and are staying in 32 emergency shelters across the islands. Some churches have been used shelters.The government curfew in place over the weekend was lifted on Monday morning, but schools will remain closed for the week, while the clean-up process begins.The government has declared a 30-day state of emergency in response to the natural disaster.Fiji’s prime minister, Frank Bainimarama, said on Saturday, as the cyclone was approaching, “As a nation we are facing an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We must stick together as a people and look after each other.”The Anglican Missions Board in the Province of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia is working with the Diocese in Fiji to respond to the situation and has launched an emergency appeal.Anglican Missions Board states: “The Diocese of Polynesia would greatly appreciate any support that we are able to provide.”Anglican Missions Board reports that John Simmons, the Secretary and Registrar of the Diocese of Polynesia, is currently working in Fiji and has told Anglican Missions that “we urgently need assistance from our Tikanga brothers and sisters to help our brothers and sisters in Polynesia who have suffered from this severe cyclone.”Meanwhile, expressing solidarity from the region, Julianne Stuart, Programs Director at ABM in Australia, wrote: “ABM has asked for prayers for the people of Fiji who have experienced loss of loved ones, injury, loss of homes and food gardens, and for Archbishop Halapua and the Anglican Church of Polynesia in Fiji. We are currently trying to get in touch with the Church in Fiji through their Missions Board, AMB in New Zealand.”The Anglican Alliance asked the Revd Orisi Vuki to say how the Anglican Communion could stand together with the Church and people in Polynesia.“Please pray for God’s intervention on Fiji and Tonga,” he said. “We need your prayers and support at this difficult time.” Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Featured Jobs & Calls Tags Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS 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 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 Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Belleville, IL Rector Collierville, TN Featured Events Rector Tampa, FL Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Pittsburgh, PA Posted Feb 22, 2016 Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Submit a Press Release AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Smithfield, NC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Hopkinsville, KY Youth Minister Lorton, VA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Submit an Event Listing Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Job Listing The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Church responds to widespread cyclone damage in Fiji Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Martinsville, VA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Washington, DC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Anglican Communion Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Dow AgroSciences Releases Q2 2014 Results

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Dow AgroSciences Releases Q2 2014 Results By Andy Eubank – Jul 23, 2014 Wednesday morning the Dow Chemical Company, parent company of Dow AgroSciences, announced its second quarter (Q2) 2014 earnings. Dow AgroSciences, referred to as Agricultural Sciences hit a record, according to the report.Agricultural Sciences achieved record second quarter sales of $1.9 billion, up 3 percent versus the year-ago period. On a year-to-date basis, sales were $4 billion, representing a first-half record for the segment.Crop Protection sales within the quarter rose 3 percent versus the same quarter last year, led by insecticides, which reported double-digit gains in all regions. Sales gains from herbicides in North America and Latin America were slightly offset by declines in Asia Pacific and EMEA, which was impacted by the early start of the cereal herbicides season in Europe. First-half sales rose 4 percent as new crop protection products delivered sales gains of 18 percent led by pyroxsulam herbicide and Isoclast™ active insecticide.Within the quarter, Seeds delivered 3 percent sales gains. The business drove growth in both corn and soybeans in North America and Latin America, more than offsetting lower planted acres of sunflowers in Latin America.Equity earnings for the segment were $2 million, a slight increase versus the year-ago period. The segment reported EBITDA of $281 million, down $9 million from the same quarter last year. Demand for novel seeds technologies and higher quality crop protection molecules was more than offset by fewer applications as a result of the late start to the season in North America and continued growth investments. On a year-to-date basis, the segment achieved record first half EBITDA of $810 million.Source: Dow AgroSciences SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleSprayers Move from Luxury to EssentialNext articleLate-season Herbicide Applications may be Ineffective Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE Dow AgroSciences Releases Q2 2014 Resultslast_img read more

Will Ag Chairman Double Duty Affect Farm Bill Work?

first_img By Andy Eubank – Apr 9, 2017 SHARE Will Ag Chairman Double Duty Affect Farm Bill Work? Facebook Twitter Ag chair heading Russia probeIf you pay attention to national politics you know that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes from California has stepped down from heading the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. His replacement just happens to be House Agriculture Committee Chair Mike Conaway. Will Conaway’s work on a new farm bill will be hurt by his new, high profile responsibilities? National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson isn’t quite sure.“Chairman Conaway’s staff has said they don’t expect this to have any impact on the pace of the farm bill,” he said. “We’re going to have to give this probably a few weeks, maybe a month or so, before we’ll really know the amount of time that it’s going to take out of his schedule.”Certainly, the investigation will take time, and can only mean an increased workload for Conaway.“I do expect that this is going to increase Chairman Conaway’s workload and take some of his attention. There’s no question about that. he happened to be the 2nd ranking on that committee (Intel) so it would naturally fall to him as soon as Chairman Nunes stepped aside.”Conaway issued a statement that he takes his new role with “the utmost seriousness,” but stressed that role is only temporary.Yet, leading the Russia probe puts Conaway in the national spotlight, compared to the low-profile job of leading the Ag Committee. It would seem to further complicate a farm bill process already disadvantaged by the much-delayed confirmation of Sonny Perdue as Ag Secretary.Source: NAFB news Home Indiana Agriculture News Will Ag Chairman Double Duty Affect Farm Bill Work?
