Leisure shares: with lockdown easing, I’d buy these 2 today “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Finally, after being closed since March, leisure centres will be allowed to reopen on Saturday 25 July. Although a slightly later date than many would have wanted, this is still excellent news for leisure companies. The leisure shares I’m looking at here, seem to be in decent shape and should profit accordingly.A high-potential shareHollywood Bowl (LSE: BOWL) is the first firm that should profit from this reopening. Before the pandemic, the bowling company was thriving. In the six months to March, it had recorded underlying sales growth of 8.6%, and had reached highs of over 300p. The firm had also managed to achieve consistent cash flow growth, and an increasing dividend.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…But obviously lockdown has had significant consequences for the firm, and it saw its share price decrease to under 70p. It currently trades at around 150p, which is still a 50% decrease from its recent highs. Yet I can see a full recovery for the share.Firstly, it has a strong balance sheet. This includes a debt-to-equity ratio of under 40%, and a decent amount of cash. The firm has also endeavoured to cut costs during this pandemic. This has included reducing monthly cash burn to just £1.2m, which would theoretically allow it to stay closed until late 2021 (which would surely not be the case). It has also raised £10.5m from an equity placing and 99% of the employers were put on furlough. This prudence should hold the share in good stead for its reopening, and I would definitely buy today.The return of gymsExercise regimes have changed drastically throughout lockdown, but the return of gyms will be very welcome news for many. The leisure share I would buy to profit from this is Gym Group (LSE: GYM).Before lockdown, the firm was growing with great success. In 2014, revenue totalled £45m, yet this rose to over £150m last year. This was thanks to its low-cost memberships, 24/7 openings and no need for contracts. But in order for the gym to break even, Barclays has suggested that membership would need to be at least 86% of February 2020 levels.Although many are sceptical and believe that people will continue to exercise at home, I’m quite bullish. Firstly, there is no doubt that exercising at home is a downgrade on gyms. As a result, although not everyone will return immediately, a longer-term return certainly seems on the cards.The firm is also in decent shape, and recently raised £41m through a share placing. This should be sufficient in keeping the business afloat, especially as cash burn currently only totals £5m a month.All in all, I believe that the reward of these leisure shares is greater than the risk. I personally prefer Hollywood Bowl due to its strong balance sheet and strong growth before the pandemic. But I also see significant upside to Gym Group, and would happily buy either of these shares today. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 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.

Isaías 9:2Estas palabras fueron expresadas hace mucho tiempo a aquellas personas que vivían en ansiedad, temor, desesperación, personas que se sentían carentes de seguridad y del sentido de la presencia de Dios. Nosotros escuchamos estas palabras al empezar la Navidad, olvidando que estas palabras fueron primero expresadas miles de años antes del nacimiento que celebramos. Los seres humanos alrededor de este planeta aún anhelan saber que una realidad más divina y misericordiosa esta activa y es evidente en nuestras vidas.El nacimiento que celebramos es para este mundo que se encuentra atrapado en la oscuridad y en el temor, y es fácil descubrir una vocecita pequeña llorando en señal de protesta por el frio, la humedad y el hambre. Nosotros oímos este llanto en medio de los estragos de guerras en el Congo y Afganistán, en los escombros de huracanes y terremotos, en la degradante pobreza crónica, y tras las rejas de la prisión. Esa luz intermitente de esperanza surge al momento que el mundo dan un giro para investigar esta sorprendente vida nueva, un corazón a la vez. La luz crece al momento que los corazones se encienden con la misma luz que ilumina las estrellas, palpitando esperanza y vida nueva, aun de las profundidades oscuras.Aquellos que buscan en la oscuridad y en la desesperación, en calabozos húmedos y en la profunda devastación, encontraran la luz divina que se dio a este mundo. Luz que no se apagara, mientras cualquier criatura permanezca para recibirla y hasta más allá del final del tiempo. La oscuridad nunca la podrá apagar.La luz brilla en las tinieblas, y las tinieblas no la vencieron. Juan 1:5Vayan and vean – y descubran el amor de Dios derramado en el mundo en forma humana. La esperanza reina extensamente, en el universo y en los corazones humanos. ¡Y alégrense, porque el niño de luz es nacido entre nosotros!Rvdma.

Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal] Archbishop Fred Hiltz described the recently concluded Joint Assembly as a “spirit-filled, spirit-led” gathering that can only strengthen the full communion relationship of the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC).“The very fact that these two churches, who have all kinds of challenges in front of them, were prepared to make this step to meet is really quite incredible,” said Hiltz, primate of the Anglican church. “What I saw through the Joint Assembly was a very positive, upbeat spirit.” The assembly was held July 3 to 7, at the Ottawa Convention Centre.Hiltz said the idea of sharing resources and working more closely together resonated with delegates. “Maybe we could have a national office someday…I think that’s how people were feeling,” said Hiltz in an interview.He said that when the moment came for the plenary hall to be divided into two so that Anglicans and Lutherans could attend to their own church’s business agenda separately, he heard both Anglicans and Lutherans say that all of a sudden they felt rather small. Others expressed the view that when the wall came, “all of a sudden we started focusing in on ourselves.”Together for the Love of the World, the theme of the assembly, found expression in the joint declaration on homelessness and resource extraction and in the youth event on Parliament Hill that called for access to clean water in indigenous communities, said Hiltz.“People had a sense that we really were together for something bigger than ourselves,” he added.Hiltz expressed the hope that delegates who watched him and ELCIC national bishop Susan Johnson chair a joint assembly saw “some modeling of shared leadership that was encouraging for them in the local context.” Hopefully, he said, “we might see some joint local synods and conventions.”As for General Synod, Hiltz said although it was a much shorter meeting, “we did in fact get our work done.”The primate said he was not surprised that the resolution asking the Council of General Synod to prepare a resolution for 2016 that would change the marriage canon to allow same-sex marriage “sparked some difficult moments.”Asked to comment on opinions expressed by some members that there wasn’t enough time to debate on the merits of the resolution, Hiltz said, “It doesn’t matter what kind of resolution you have on the floor that’s going to change the marriage canon of the church so that same-sex couples can be married. It’s going to be controversial.”Reacting to statements made by some members that allowing same-sex marriage is a big leap from the blessing of same-sex unions, the primate said, “None of that surprises me. There’s nothing new in that perspective; that’s been there in the life of the church for many years.”Hiltz acknowledged that the debate should have been focused on whether or not General Synod wanted to direct CoGS to prepare the marriage canon resolution for 2016. “The debate, in large measure, ended up being about people’s expression of disagreement around the blessing of same-sex union or marriage,” he said.With regard to the procedural error that he made on the vote to the marriage canon resolution, Hiltz said he was “very grateful and proud” that the synod was patient with him and allowed him to correct the situation. “I found that to be a very moving moment when the synod would listen to the chair, step back, listen to the mistake he’s made so that, whatever the outcome is, due process would have been followed.”As for what he considered to be highlights of the meeting, Hiltz noted General Synod’s approval of an indigenous diocese in northern Ontario, and its passage of the resolution setting out the criteria for choosing future national indigenous Anglican bishops and members of the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples and Sacred Circle, as examples.“They were all wonderful moments. You can see that a new day is dawning for indigenous people and their sense of place within this church,” he said. “It was wonderful to see the joy of the synod…the absolute respect as the elders came in and took their places.” Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Press Release Service Rector Albany, NY last_img read more

Peltier thanks supporters on 71st birthday

first_imgU.S. political prisoner Leonard Peltier released the following statement from prison on his 71st birthday.September 12, 2015Greetings everyone,Well, today is another b-day for me — my 71st. I had hoped I would not be here [in prison] at this age, but that’s not to be. So I have to take a deep breath and slowly let it out … and prepare myself for yet another day in here.February 6th marks my 40th year in prison. How many of you know that when I was indicted a life sentence was seven years? I was sentenced to two life sentences, so with good time I have served six-plus life sentences. I suppose all of this time has taken its toll on my body. I have a number of different health issues that come with old age. The one I’m most concerned about is my prostate.Otherwise, I’m still getting compliments on how good I look for my age (smile). People can be nice and say things that make me feel good once in awhile. But I’m told this so often that I’m starting to believe it (smile).DID YOU KNOW THAT THE LAST TIME I WENT BEFORE THE PAROLE COMMISSION (2009), I WAS DENIED BECAUSE I LOOKED YOUNG AND HEALTHY. … AND A REASON GIVEN FOR DENYING ME PAROLE WAS THAT I MIGHT BE TOO MUCH OF AN INFLUENCE ON THE YOUNG NATIVES? YEAH, ONLY IN AMERICA.And get this: In October 1984, when the Parole Commission was repealed by Congress, the commission was given six years to give me a parole date — all of us “old time” prisoners really (those convicted prior to 1984). Yes, this is all true. All you have to do is research it, and I bet you will come away shocked as hell that this can happen in your country. The Parole Commission is the only government agency that has been repealed and reinstated 35 days later without having to go through the normal congressional channels and signed into law by the president. How does this happen in a democracy?I’ve been encouraged by things I’ve read recently though. And looking back … it’s been over 60 years, maybe a little longer. I was around seven or eight years old when I heard the old people talking about taking care of Mother Earth. But for me anyway, as with all young people, I did not really understand what they were trying to tell us. But I see today the traditionalists were correct and [American Indian Movement] People were right when we took it up as a rallying cry to the world. Still, when we spoke out against the destruction of Mother Earth, we were called a bunch of nuts. Well, today, it is called climate change, and there are now millions of us crying out against the destruction of our Mother Earth. Amazing, huh? Thankfully I have lived this long and can see we just might win this war. I know it’s not over — far from it — but the world is waking up and talking about it now. So it can be won in our lifetime.Well, People, I don’t know how much longer I have left on Mother Earth — or if I will even be around for the next few years — but I always hope and pray that I can be out there to spend my last few remaining years with you. If not, so be it. I have been in here too long to cry now. I just wish for more time to give to my People and to all freedom-loving People in the world.Thanks again for all of the love you have shown me over these 40 years. You have all been worth it.In the Spirit of Crazy Horse …Doksha,Leonard PeltierFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Eight journalists beaten by plain clothes police

On arriving at the accident scene, they were intercepted by plain-clothes men and security guards managing the traffic and were led away to a dark room where they were beaten and their equipment was taken from them.Later, an unidentified man who had come from a municipal office even prevented ambulance crews from giving them first aid. A journalist from Nanfang Dushi Bao had to be taken to hospital so that a nail impaled in his foot could be removed. The journalists managed to photograph their assailants and get the licence number of one of the ‘security guards.’An investigation was ordered by Wang Huayuan, the deputy secretary of the Guangdong Communist Party committee. Reporters Without Borders today condemned the severe beating which eight Chinese journalists received from plain-clothes police and security guards when they went to cover a fatal road accident at a bridge in Renhe, in the southern province of Guangdong, on 26 September.

Increases in Home-Price Growth Lagging in June

first_img Previous: Cybercrime in Foreclosure Law: Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing Next: Employment’s Correlation with Housing  Print This Post Home-price growth slowed in June, as the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Home Price Index reported that prices rose just annually 3.1% in June—a decline from 3.3% growth in May. Also falling were price gains in 10-city composite, which dropped from 2.2% to 1.8% in June. The 20-city composite posted a 2.1% annual gain, down from 2.4% the prior month. “While falling mortgage rates have thus far only led to an increase in refinancing, rather than purchase activity, there will undoubtedly be a large boon to the marginal homebuyer,” Said Ralph B. McLaughlin, Deputy Chief Economist and Executive of research and insights for CoreLogic. “Thus, we should expect the lengthy slowdown in home price growth to flatten or even tick upwards by the end of the year assuming the U.S. economy avoids any present-day threats of a recession.”Phoenix overtook Las Vegas for the market with the highest annual price growth at 5.8%. Home prices in Las Vegas grew year-over-year by 5.5% and Tampa Bay followed with a 4.7% increase. Atlanta, Georgia, and Detroit, Michigan, were close behind with annual growth at 4.5% and 4.2%, respectively. Six of the 20 cities in the composite reported higher price increases against the prior month. The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHA) also reported Tuesday that home prices in Q2 2019 rose 1% and are 5% higher when compared to Q2 2018. Home prices have risen for 32-consecutive quarters across the nation, and have increased in every state over the past year.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna while hearing a petition filed by Know Your Rights Association, brought to the attention the order issued by Kalaburagi District Administration, which suggests that organizations which are distributing food to beggars, needy and the homeless, are committing direct violation of the prohibitory order under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code. Similar situation was also reported in Dharwad district. The bench said “Prima facie, we are of the opinion that voluntary organizations cannot be prevented from distributing food to the weaker sections of the society so long as they are following the norms of social distancing and taking other precautionary measures.” The court once again suggested the government to coordinate with the NGO working in the field. It said “Right from our first order, we have been suggesting to the State Government that the activities of NGOs working in the field need to be coordinated. If the state government is unable to provide a portal where all the NGOs can upload their information, the state must consider convening meetings at the district level, municipal level, etc. via Video Conferencing for coordinating the activities of NGOs. It will be appropriate that at such meetings, the Chairpersons and Secretaries of the District Legal Service Authorities (DLSAs) are invited to attend.” Efforts undertaken by BBMP to help migrants and homeless people are not satisfactory. By an order dated April 9, the court had pulled up the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for not putting in systematic efforts to ascertain how many migrants, homeless people and stranded people are on the streets or are squatting on public places such as below the flyovers, in Bengaluru city. It even had asked the state to issue a The court had even directed Additional Chief Secretary of the Urban Development Department to issue appropriate directions to BBMP. To ensure that all the measures undertaken by the State Government are implemented within the limits of BBMP. The state informed the court that it has issued a circular dated April 11, on the subject of opening of shelter homes for migrants, homeless persons, destitutes and those who have been stranded on the streets due to COVID-19 lockdown. The court said “A perusal of the second report filed by BBMP will show that the same is not at all satisfactory. Compliance of the directions contained in the circular dated 11th April, 2020 is not reported in the second report. Considering the fact that nearly 1/3rd of positive cases of COVID-19 reported in the State are from Bengaluru Urban District, compliance by BBMP with the directions issued by the State Government is of utmost importance.” The bench suggested to BBMP to hold a video conference meeting on Tuesday with the members of the Bar who are appearing today through video conference hearing. BBMP has been told to file further compliance reports by April 15. On April 7, court had directed BBMP to take immediate steps to set up shelters for migrant workers and to ensure that all facilities are made available to them. This followed the submissions made by counsel for Karnataka State Legal Aid Services Authority (KSLASA) about disturbing features of the status of the migrant workers in the city of Bengaluru. It was found that more than 2000 persons had assembled in and around Majestic Railway Station and Balepet Circle. DGP Issues Circular for strict implementation on ban of religious congregation. The State Government informed the court that on April 10, a Circular has been issued by the Director General and Inspector General of Police for strict implementation of complete ban on religious congregations. Protection to Para-Legal Volunteers Counsel appearing for Karnataka State Legal Services Authority (KSLSA) informed the court that para-legal volunteers (PLVs) associated with the DLSAs are being issued passes by the Secretaries of the concerned DSLAs. However, the police are not permitting PLVs to move on the basis of such passes. At many places in the city of Bengaluru, the police authorities are showing ignorance about the existence of DSLAs. In fact, there are instances where PLVs were abused in filthy language. The bench said “The reports placed on record (by KSLSA) show that the State Legal Services Authority and DLSAs are playing a proactive role throughout the State. Therefore, we direct that on a requisition made by the Chairpersons of the DLSAs to the concerned State officials, requisite number of passes shall be issued forthwith, to enable the PLVs to perform the duties which are entrusted to them.” The court also suggested the Director General of Police to consider issuing necessary guidelines to the police authorities to allow the PLVs to do their work on production of the certificates/passes issued by the DLSAs. “The State Government may supply passes by keeping the name of the holder of the pass blank, which shall be filled in by the Secretary of the DSLA with a clear understanding that the passes will be non-transferable and will be returned by the concerned PLVs to the Secretaries of the concerned DSLAs at the end of the day,” bench said. As regards to the issue raised about non-availability of masks and hand gloves to PLVs and the Secretaries of DLSAs who are making frequent visits to various places. The court directed DLSAs to submit a requisition to the District Health Officer concerned for providing adequate number of masks and hand gloves which can be used by PLVs and judicial officers during site visits. “We hope and trust that the requisitions will be acted upon by the State Government at the earliest,” it said.
