Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares If you have £2,000 or any other amount to invest, buying UK shares could be a great option. Buying high-quality stocks at discount prices could even help you get rich over the long run with a regular investment plan.With that in mind, here are two UK shares that may be worth buying today as buy-and-forget investments. 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…UK shares to buy Associated British Foods (LSE: ABF) may be one of the most attractive UK shares to buy right now. The diversified conglomerate does everything from producing sugar to selling discount clothing. This diversification makes the company a relatively defensive investment.Considering the shaky outlook for the UK economy right now, this is a highly attractive quality. Indeed, as the company’s retail business has suffered over the past few months, its food arm has prospered. Associated British’s latest trading update shows that the company is recovering well from the coronavirus crisis, unlike other UK shares. Trading in its Primark fashion stores that have reopened after coronavirus lockdown has recovered well. Cumulative sales for the seven weeks to June 20 were down just 12% year-on-year.As such, it looks as if the business is well positioned to make a strong recovery over the next few years. City analysts are forecasting a near 50% slump in the company’s earnings for this year, although they expect a strong recovery in 2021.Considering the company’s track record of outperforming City expectations, this could be a conservative forecast. Therefore, it seems likely that the stock will produce high total returns in the years ahead, which could help investors grow their financial nest-egg when owned alongside other UK shares. The stock has turned every £2,000 into £4,400 over the past decade, double the return of the FTSE 100 over the same period.Admiral GroupInsurance giant Admiral Group (LSE: ADM) has been one of the best-performing UK shares this year. Over the past 12 months, the stock is up a staggering 46%! Unlike many other businesses, Admiral may benefit from the lockdown. Less traffic on the roads reduced the number of car insurance claims, which should help the group’s profit margins.The company’s main competitor, Direct Line, has already announced a bumper first half. That suggests Admiral may see the same improved performance.Alongside its results, Direct Line also announced that it would be paying a special dividend due to the increased level of profitability. It seems highly likely Admiral will do the same as well.Indeed, the company has one of the best dividend track records of all UK shares. Over the past few years, management has struck a careful balance between investing in the group’s global operations and returning capital to investors. With profits set to jump, it looks as if this trend may continue in the coming years. Based on current projections, the City is forecasting total distributions of 135p from the company this year. That’s equivalent to a dividend yield of 5.3% on a current share price.When combined with the company’s potential for capital growth, this number suggests that the stock can provide high total returns for shareholders in the years ahead when owned as part of a well-diversified portfolio of UK shares. The stock has turned every £2,000 into £5,000 over the past 10 years. Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Very, very sad. Rector Albany, NY Fr. William W Haslett III says: Rector Knoxville, TN The Very Rev. David Thurlow of South Carolina goes over wording changes in an amendment to a resolution with the Rev. Susan Williams of Western New York during a meeting of the Prayer Book, Liturgy and Church Music Committee.Photo/Sharon Sheridan[Episcopal News Service] The 77th General Convention in Indianapolis made headlines when it approved a provisional rite of blessing for lifelong same-gender relationships (Resolution A049). But it also considered 35 resolutions on a wide range of other liturgical issues, from authorizing continued trial use of Holy Women, Holy Men to considering the best way to translate the prayer book into other languages.Calendar commemorationsNearly one-third of the resolutions involved commemorations on the church calendar.The Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music will continue revising Holy Women, Holy Men during the 2013-2015 triennium, in part by soliciting responses from the church, according to Resolution A051. Holy Women, Holy Men was first presented to the 2009 General Convention as a major revision of Lesser Feasts and Fasts, the church’s commemoration of various saints and occasions not included as major holy days on the calendar of the Book of Common Prayer. The new version, which added many new commemorations to the church calendar, was in trial use during this triennium. That status will continue during 2013-2015.The convention directed SCLM (via Resolution A052) to consult with Executive Council’s Committee on the Status of Women, the Episcopal Women’s History Project and other organizations of women in the church to identify women suitable for inclusion in the calendar and to develop liturgical material for their commemoration. It proposed trial use of additional commemorations and propers for: James Solomon Russell, Emily Cooper, Junia and Andronicus, Pauli Murray, the first ordination of women to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church, the baptisms of Manteo and of Virginia Dare, and Thecla.General Convention referred various potential commemorations to SCLM: Whiting Griswold; Dr. Artemisia Bowden; the Rev. Hiram Hisanori Kano; Daniel Sylvester Tuttle; George W. Foote; Edward N. Goddard; William “Bowtie Bill” White; Deaconess Anna Ellison Butler Alexander; Emily Malbone Morgan; and Dag Hammarskjold.Marriage task forceThe convention authorized creating a task force of up to 12 members to study marriage (via Resolution A050). It directed the task force to consult with married couples, single adults and those “in other lifelong committed relationships” as well as with other churches in the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church’s ecumenical partners.General Convention also directed the task force to consult with SCLM and the Standing Commission on Constitution and Canons about addressing clergy’s pastoral needs “to officiate at a civil marriage of a same-sex couple” in states where it is legal. During a July 5 discussion by the General Convention Prayer Book, Liturgy and Church Music Committee, the Very Rev. David Thurlow of the Diocese of South Carolina objected to taking an action he said was contrary to the understanding of marriage in the wider Christian church, including the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches.The task force was told to report its progress to the 78th meeting of convention in July 2015 in Salt Lake City.But Deputy Katrina Hamilton from the Diocese of Olympia, who identified herself as a single heterosexual woman, said she’d like to see the church “have a serious conversation” about marriage. “I think we need this for all of us, not just for our gay and lesbian friends and brothers and sisters, but for me as well.”Animal and creation ritesThe convention approved new rites and prayers for the care of beloved animals (Resolution A054). The resolution calls for the liturgies to be made available “for use in a variety of settings to provide pastorally for people caring for animals.” They include a rite for when a beloved animal dies as well as prayers for when animals are adopted, ill or lost or missing, when an animal is euthanized, when a farm or wild animal dies and when animals suffer during warfare.Proposed “Liturgical Materials for Honoring God in Creation” (Resolution A053) were referred to the SCLM for further revision in anticipation of their reintroduction at General Convention 2015.Lectionary and translationsThe convention authorized changes in the Book of Common Prayer lectionary to conform with the Revised Common Lectionary (Resolution A059). But it also authorized continued use of the 1979 prayer book lectionary instead of the RCL, with the local bishop’s permission (Resolution B009).“It’s not the goal of this resolution to supplant the Revised Common Lectionary,” said the resolution’s proposer, legislative committee member Springfield Bishop Daniel Martins. “It is rather a request for some pastoral charity in that, as a bishop, I have received several requests from clergy in my own diocese to allow them to continue using the 1979 lectionary.”The convention approved Resolution A062 to allow for translations of the prayer book into other languages “so that such translations reflect the idiomatic style and cultural context of those languages.”Concerning Bible translations, the convention approved Resolution D021 authorizing the use of the Contemporary English Version (1995), the Contemporary English Version Global (2005) and the Common English Bible (2011) for lectionary readings.It referred Resolution A061 concerning authorizing other Bible translations to the SCLM for further research and review.In convention discussions and during informal pre-convention discussions on the House of Bishops and Deputies listserv, some had objected to the use of The Message because they said it was a paraphrase rather than a translation. The convention legislative committee initially recommended the resolution pass without adding The Message and deleting the currently approved Good News Bible on those grounds. The resolution explanation had described The Message as a text “that greatly improves upon the Good News Bible.”Committee member the Rev. Ernesto Medina of Nebraska said he was glad when an amended version of the resolution returned to the committee for consideration because, “in the area of unintended consequences,” deleting the Good News Bible would have meant that the Spanish translation of that Bible – the one most commonly used in Latino ministry – no longer was authorized.The amended resolution would have included authorizing using the English Standard Version (2007) with the New Oxford ESV Apocryphal (2009). The committee recommended the resolution to the SCLM for further study.Electronic availabilityThe legislative committee spent some time discussing the electronic availability of liturgical resources, how much it cost to produce such materials and whether they should be available to users at no cost. The committee also requested and heard testimony from Church Publishing Inc. officials about these issues and heard from Martins about an offer from Forward Movement to potentially be involved in producing such materials. Ultimately, the convention referred two related resolutions to the SCLM.DO60 had asked convention to direct SCLM to start planning during 2013-2015 “for the structuring of all liturgical and musical resources as format- and platform-independent content, so that it may be made freely available to any device or medium,” and return to the 2015 General Convention with a plan to move forward.D079 would have directed church center staff “to gather and make electronically available and easily accessible, both online for downloads and in electronic media such as CD-ROM, DVD and their successor technologies, all liturgical resources adopted for permanent or trial use by General Convention, as soon as reasonably feasible” but not later than the end of 2013.Other resolutionsOther liturgy-related resolutions General Convention approved include:• A048, directing the SCLM to form a congregational song task force and to develop and expand the work started in the World Music Project.• A055, making available “Daily Prayer for All Seasons,” a set of liturgical materials for use by those wishing to pray or meditate throughout the day.• A056, continuing revision of the Book of Occasional Services.• A057, authorizing continued use of Enriching Our Worship 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.• A058, directing the SCLM “to continue to collect, review and disseminate materials to address Christian anti-Judaism” in Scriptures and liturgical texts.• A060, continuing work on liturgies for the adoption of children.• A166, urging participation in the National Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS, which begins the first Sunday in March.— Sharon Sheridan is an Episcopal News Service correspondent and was a member of the ENS news team at General Convention. July 17, 2012 at 8:31 pm I am glad to see the article mention The Contemporary English Version and the Contemporary English Version Global. (Global has metric measurements, not British) The translation is set at a 4th grade reading level, and is especially meant to be read orally and listened to. When readings for the Gospel of John come up, that have the word “the Jews” translating hoi Ioudaioi, consider CEV, as you will find “the Jewish leaders” or “the leaders” or “the people.” I have been involved in interfaith work for a couple of years, and have an ear attentive to how our words can sometimes lead themselves to unfortunate connotations and misunderstandings.If you buy a copy, get the American Bible Society with Deuterocanonicals and Apocrypha. The art work is middle-Eastern (not blue-eyed blond northern European). Or, if you go to Bible Gateway on line, the entire text (excluding the Deuterocanonicals and Apocrypha) is available online. I thank the bishops and deputies of GC 77 approving D021.And, yes, I have a Common English Bible. I most often read NRSV in worship and on occasion feel I should be reading something else.Personally, I regret The Message was not approved. There are times I will read the gospel in NRSV and then read The Message to begin the sermon. Some of the parables are unbelievably good. If/when it is approved, I would use it judiciously and rarely. I first heard The Message read at an ecumenical service in a Methodist church, and the reader read I Corinthians 13. I heard that chapter like I had never heard it before.My contacts at the American Bible Society pointed out that the CEV was not designed to replace the Good News but to supplement the Good News.

But I am grateful. My life today is spent working among non-church people, mostly in jails and prisons, and a lot of what I did in parish ministry had nothing to do with the lives of such people. Today I feel that the Episcopal Church is a lot closer to those people’s lives. I have not always been very proud to be an Episcopalian. Today, more often than not, I am very proud and thankful.

Today, that figure has fallen to just 4.3%, largely due to budgeting.The sliding autopsy rate means that death certificates are more unreliable than you’d think. As much as 85% have some error in the listed cause of death.According to the science publication Elemental, phrases like “cardiac arrest” are often just empty placeholders.If you want peace of mind, you have to go privateThat’s especially true during the pandemic. The National Association of Medical Examiners told National Geographic that private autopsies are on the up and up this year.Companies like the Los Angeles-based 1-800-AUTOPSY say that they are busier in 2020 than ever before.But at $10k+, a private autopsy isn’t cheap.

While he finished with 11 points, Williams established himself as a threat from three, shooting 3-4 from behind the three-point line.“I’m telling him to shoot on the catch, not hesitate, and just simplify his game by driving to the hoop when given the opportunity,” Dixon said. “As good as he is, we need Kenrich to be more aggressive scoring-wise, but again he was out all year missed the preseason, and we haven’t even seen him play and really seen all his strengths.”Dixon said in time Williams can achieve an even higher level play, but that he still is overcoming time he missed because of microfracture surgery on his knee.“It’s hard to become a scorer overnight, and he didn’t practice all summer and all fall,” Dixon said. “To think it’s going to happen right away is unrealistic.”Another standout performance during Wednesday’s game came from freshman point Jaylen Fisher, a player for whom Dixon has high expectations. Fisher scored 12 points, shot 2-3 from three, dished out four assists, and helped TCU create separation in overtime.“I think Jaylen was hitting the shots, and I think foul trouble has been bothering him and limiting his effectiveness, but he battled through it,” Dixon said. “Plus, he’s freshman going through it, and we knew it would come eventually.”Looking at the Horned Frog’s March Madness resume, there aren’t a lot of blemishes.“The only horrible loss resume-wise has been Auburn at home, and otherwise we’ve been tied or ahead in pretty much every other game that we have lost,” Dixon said. “We have a chance to finish in the top half of the league, and we have two road wins and lost to the best two teams in the league at home.”TCU has the opportunity to pad their NCAA tournament hopes as the season winds down with a favorable schedule down the stretch.“We have five of our last nine at home, and I hope we can start playing our best basketball,” Dixon said. “We’re in position to do some things, but we can’t take a step backwards, and we haven’t except against Auburn when we hurt ourselves.”The Horned Frogs return to action Saturday against Texas at noon in Schollmaier Arena.

While all foreclosure starts saw an increase of 7 percent month-over-month in August, the number of repeat foreclosures jumped by 13 percent.Coinciding with the substantial increase in repeat foreclosure starts in August was an nearly equally substantial decline in the number of first time foreclosure starts. According to Black Knight, first time foreclosure starts totaled 35,000 in August, their second-lowest total for one month since the crisis began (only April 2015 was lower).“The high incidence of repeat foreclosures is actually a testament to the lengths servicers have been going in terms of actively working with high delinquency loans and trying to find the best path to pursue with these borrowers,” said Ben Graboske, Chief Technology Officer for the Data and Analytics Division at Black Knight. “When this happens, loans move out of active foreclosure and back into 90+ days delinquent status, presumably to pursue loss mitigation efforts. If and/or when those fail, the loan is shifted back to foreclosure.”“The high incidence of repeat foreclosures is actually a testament to the lengths servicers have been going in terms of actively working with high delinquency loans and trying to find the best path to pursue with these borrowers,”The fact that the share of repeat foreclosure starts is increasing is not completely bad, according to Graboske.”The problem today lies with a smaller and smaller group of loans that have been distressed for many years now—over half of all loans in foreclosure have been past due for two years or more—and which have often gone in and out of foreclosure many times,” Graboske said. “When repeats are making up a greater and greater share of a smaller and smaller population (the population of loans in foreclosure has been steadily declining for quite some time now, despite the occasional bump in starts), it’s actually a good thing—not for those people, of course, but in terms of a barometer of overall recovery.”Overall, foreclosure starts were little changed over the year, seeing only a 1.3 percent decline from August 2014, according to Black Knight.

Daniel Webster Jason Chaffetz Republicans Speaker of the House 2015-10-09 Brian Honea Print This Post Speaker of the House Candidates Come From Contrasting Housing States Subscribe Share Save Daniel WebsterJason ChaffetzThe announcement from Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-California) that he is withdrawing his name from consideration for the soon-to-be-vacant Speaker of the House position has left no clear successor to current Speaker John Boehner, but a couple of candidates have emerged as of late to compete for the top position in the U.S. House of Representatives.Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Daniel Webster (R-Florida) have both announced their candidacy while Boehner, who originally announced that his resignation will be effective at the end of October, has now said he will remain Speaker of the House until a successor is found.”I am running for Speaker of the House of Representatives because I want to lead the way on tackling the toughest issues facing the United States of America,” Chaffetz said. “The American people have entrusted Republicans with the largest majority since the 1920s, but with that majority comes a responsibility to get the job done that we were elected to do. I came to Congress to help fix problems, and as Speaker I will fight every day to make that happen. I look forward to sharing my vision for the Speakership with my colleagues and the American people.”In an October 5 Tweet, Webster said, “This election is about fundamentally transforming Congress. I commit to serving Members as their Speaker of the House.”Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Ohio), the Republicans’ nominee for vice president in 2012, was reportedly asked by Boehner to run for Speaker of the House to succeed him\. But he announced that he will not run—although there is some speculation he will change his mind.One of the toughest issues facing the nation is the declining homeownership rate, which has fallen to its lowest level in five decades despite all the positive news from the housing market this year. Chaffetz and Webster come from different worlds when it comes to being affected by the housing crisis, however.”This election is about fundamentally transforming Congress. I commit to serving Members as their Speaker of the House.”—Daniel WebsterFlorida has been one of the states hit hardest by the foreclosure crisis. No state has seen more completed closures than Florida since 2008; for example, for the 12-month period ending July 31, 2015, there were 98,000 completed foreclosures in Florida—about one-fifth of the national total for that period, according to CoreLogic. Florida’s foreclosure rate has regularly been far higher than national averages; in July, it was 2.7 percent, more than double the national average of 1.2 percent.Webster has experience handling the effects of the housing crisis, having served as a Representative in Central Florida since 2011. He has vowed to strengthen Florida’s housing market and stabilize house prices by making sure that “over-intrusive” regulations imposed by Dodd-Frank are not shutting potential homebuyers out of the housing market, and also encouraged responsible savings toward a downpayment in order to create homeownership opportunities.Utah is a different story, however. Utah’s foreclosure rate and serious delinquency rate of 0.4 percent and 1.8 percent, respectively, for July 2015 are both far below the national averages of 1.2 percent and 3.4 percent, according to CoreLogic. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Utah’s homeownership rate for 2009 to 2013—the years immediately following the housing crisis—was more than 5 percentage points higher than the national average (70.1 percent compared to 64.9 percent).Utah has not been as severely affected by the housing crisis as some states, including Florida, and changes in housing policy have not been at the forefront of issues in Utah. As the top Republican lawmaker in the House of Representatives, how would each of these candidates attack the problem of the nationwide declining homeownership? Would Chaffetz approach it any differently than Webster?
