Civil unrest in the bank’s home region, Hong Kong, has hit growth, and it does not look as if this disruption is going to come to an end any time soon.Further, HSBC is struggling with low interest rates around the world. With rates low, the bank can charge customers so much to borrow, which hurts profitability.Still, it seems to be coping well with these headwinds. It is cutting costs to stay competitive, and HSBC’s global footprint means that it can offer customers comprehensive services its competitors cannot.Management is planning to unveil a new growth strategy alongside full-year results in February. In the meantime, investors can pick up a yield of 6.6% from the stock. As the payout is covered 1.4 times by earnings per share, it looks quite safe for the time being.M&GIt is starting to become clear that shares in M&G (LSE: MNG) were deeply undervalued when they came to the market in October last year.Since the company’s spin-off, the stock has risen by more than a quarter, and it looks as if this is only just the beginning.It appears that investors are betting on a better than expected performance from the company when it reports its maiden results.Indeed, shares in M&G are currently dealing at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 6.6. That’s compared to its sector average of 14.2.Moreover, the stock will yield 6.1% this year, according to analysts. Based on these figures, it seems as if the shares offer a wide margin of safety at current levels.As such, if you’re looking for cheap income, it might be worth snapping up shares in this global asset manager. Considering the stock’s performance over the past three months, it does not look as if it will remain undervalued for long.Standard Life AberdeenRecent trading updates from Standard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA) imply that this business is struggling. The company is suffering from rising outflows from its investment funds.Investors are deserting Standard Life’s offerings in favour of cheaper passive funds. This trend has been gathering pace for some time, and it’s impacting all asset managers.However, there’s more to Standard than the group’s core asset management business. It also owns stakes in insurance companies around the world. These investments could be worth substantially more than their value on the firm’s balance sheet.This is where the value lies. As such, it seems as if Standard Life offers value at current levels. The stock is trading at a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of just under one, compared to the market average of 1.4.Moreover, the stock offers a dividend yield of 6.8%. So, it seems as if the share offers the potential for both income and capital growth at current levels. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

England Saxons: Burns Night shouldn’t scotch Freddie

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Getting his fingers burnt: Freddie Burns failed to make an impact with his boot or his passing for the SaxonsBy Charlie MorganSaturday was Burns Night. But only the Irish celebrated it at Kingsholm. In fact, given what went on during England Saxons’ narrow defeat to Joe Schmidt’s second string, an excruciating irony filled the West Country air.The very last second encapsulated everything. With his side 14-8 down to Irish Wolfhounds, Freddie Burns saw a gap down the undefended blind-side of a ruck barely two metres out from the try-line. It was fine opportunism, but over-eagerness saw the ball slip out of play and into the touch-judge’s midriff. As Burns buried his head in the turf and referee Ian Davies blew the final whistle, the scene looked cruelly comic.Two weeks previously, Stuart Lancaster had rung Burns to let the mercurial fly-half know he would not be included in England’s initial Six Nations squad. Instead, after a jittery start to the domestic and European season, the 23 year-old would have an evening to prove his form against the Wolfhounds.As Burns acknowledged last week in Loughborough with typical honesty, it was a difficult call to take – but one that refocused him on the goal of adding to his three Test caps. “Sometimes you have to take it on the chin and hope bad experiences make you a better player and a better person,” were the exact words.Sadly, Burns’s brief – taming the Irish with clinical game management and guiding his team to victory over a squad decorated with 17 full internationals – didn’t go to plan. That’s a fairly generous understatement.After four minutes, Isaac Boss took advantage of spatial uncertainty around a driving maul to scamper over past Burns’s left shoulder. Attempting to make amends, the Saxons’ pivot flung out several wide passes. Rather than release Charlie Sharples and Elliot Daly though, they slowed on the wind and stunted momentum. Resorting to his boot, Burns saw a grubber blocked before an over-hit chip relinquished possession. A pair of misses from the tee in either half compounded matters – a familiar trend this term.Quick feet: Simon Zebo returned to action for the WolfhoundsIn short, Burns was consumed by anxiety for the first hour. Wolfhounds ten Ian Madigan offered a striking contrast. Having also fallen out of favour at club level – seeing Jimmy Gopperth usurp him as first choice with Leinster – he appeared assured, nailing two conversions and dotting down himself following a sharp tap-penalty. A few things conspired against Burns – immense industry and muscularity from the Irish pack and Joe Simpson’s slightly scrappy service – but the overriding problem was clearly psychological. On his old stomping ground, there was an individual onus on him that was just too tough to deal with. It meant too much. Trying to fight out of the claustrophobia, Burns forced things and overplayed his hand. If their half-backs take the right options regularly, a team should not lose after enjoying 63 per cent possession and 66 per cent territory. Those statistics are pretty stark.Lancaster, a spectator on Saturday, knows that. But crucially, Burns will be well aware of his shortcomings too. He is a quick learner and his own harshest critic – that was apparent from the final 20 minutes when he landed a penalty to bring the Saxons within striking distance before nearly rescuing a result. Replacements Elliot Stooke and superb Sam Dickinson presented a sturdier platform and Burns responded well, tightening things up and conducting punchy phase-play. Despite the dancing feet of Simon Zebo, Wolfhounds were on the ropes.Problem solving is a key quality in international fly-halves and Burns showed admirable character, communication and leadership to aid Saxons’ resurgence. As for that blunder at the death, Twitter was awash with ridicule as keyboard warriors delighted in his failure. Irish site was kind enough to post a video of the incident and compel watchers to “gather round and laugh at Freddie Burns” – classy. Armchair critics have it easy when it comes to ambitious players. The same people who moan about England’s lack of imagination are usually quick to pile into anyone who tries something new – it’s a mundane hypocrisy.The truth is, it took a decent blend of vision and bottle for Burns to back himself, not only to cross the whitewash but also to kick a touchline conversion for an unlikely win. It was execution, not decision-making, which let him down. Ask any coach – you’d rather somebody on your team with faith in their skills who is ballsy enough to seize the moment.Such confidence is usually infectious and could have been important on Saturday in Paris when it is likely that at least two debutants – Luther Burrell and one of Jack Nowell and Anthony Watson – will be in England’s match-day 23. As it is, Lancaster has chosen to retain the pragmatic pair of George Ford and Stephen Myler, and Burns has another week in the Saxons against Scotland A at Scotstoun. BAGSHOT, ENGLAND – JANUARY 27: Luther Burrell runs with the ball watched by Jack Nowell; during the England training session held at Pennyhill Park on January 27, 2014 in Bagshot, England. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Youngsters getting a shot: Anthony Watson and Jack NowellBut he will not stay out in the cold for long. For England to seriously challenge in 2015, they need to score tries. When calm and comfortable, Burns has the spark to trouble any defence. Remember his first touch in a Test match 13 months ago? He took it to the line, committed a couple of All Black defenders and ignited a move that would have brought a five-pointer if Mike Brown had pinned his ears back.Time is a healer, and one week out of intense Six Nations limelight should work wonders. Lancaster’s door is never locked, certainly not to a man of talent and upbeat attitude. An improved performance up in Glasgow on Friday can still open it before the Six Nations has ended. A difficult Burns Night might yet be the making of young Freddie.last_img read more

Episcopal leaders renew calls to protect Arctic refuge after Trump…

first_imgEpiscopal leaders renew calls to protect Arctic refuge after Trump administration’s latest moves on drilling Faith & Politics, By David PaulsenPosted Aug 18, 2020 Mountain ranges and waterways in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Photo: U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal leaders are stepping up their calls to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska after the Trump administration announced Aug. 17 it was moving forward with plans to sell drilling leases on part of the nearly 20 million-acre preserve to oil companies.The refuge is a major caribou birthing ground and is considered sacred by the Alaska Natives who hunt the caribou when the herds migrate south. In 1980, Congress earmarked 1.57 million acres of the refuge’s vast coastal plain to energy exploration, starting a fight that has carried on ever since.The Episcopal Church has been on record opposing drilling in the refuge at least since 1991, and the church has intensified its advocacy in recent years as President Donald Trump has pushed for new drilling.In the latest development, the Interior Department announced it had completed the reviews necessary to begin auctioning off drilling leases to energy companies, possibly by the end of this year.“This administration has done nothing but disrespect the Indigenous peoples that have occupied these lands,” Bernadette Demientieff, an Episcopalian, said in a statement released Aug. 17 by the Gwich’in Steering Committee, of which she is executive director. “Our ways of life, our food security and our identity is not up for negotiation.”The Gwich’in, mostly Episcopalians because of the church’s early missionary work in the region, are one of the largest Native communities in Alaska. Those who live in the small villages of the Alaskan Interior still follow many of the traditional subsistence ways of life that their families have for thousands of years, though that lifestyle now faces environmental, cultural and economic threats.“The fight is not over,” said Demientieff, who also serves on The Episcopal Church’s Task Force on Creation Care and Environmental Racism. She alluded to the ongoing legal battle over the refuge, which could delay any drilling there for years.Trump has emphasized drilling in the Arctic as a way to promote America’s “energy dominance,” and many in Alaska, including some Alaska Natives, support that plan because of the new jobs it could bring to the state. The economics shifted this year, however, as the coronavirus pandemic created volatility in the energy sector, sending oil prices sharply lower starting in March.The Porcupine Caribou Herd in the 1002 area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Coastal Plain, with the Brooks Range mountains in the distance to the south. Photo: U.S. Fish & Wildlife ServiceThe Rev. Melanie Mullen, The Episcopal Church’s director of reconciliation, justice and creation care, cited the pandemic in questioning the administration’s continued focus on oil exploration.“In this time of COVID-19 – and nationwide calls for racial justice – it is especially disturbing that our government is still ignoring voices and witnesses of Indigenous people,” Mullen said in a written statement to Episcopal News Service. “Alaska citizens and Episcopalians in Alaska are clear that ANWR drilling jeopardizes the health and wellbeing of their communities. For our Gwich’in siblings, destroying the caribou herding grounds is a spiritual and social assault.”The plight of the Gwich’in figured prominently in discussions at the 79th General Convention in 2018 about protecting the environment. Demientieff spoke about the refuge that year during a joint session on care of creation.The House of Bishops responded by passing a resolution acknowledging “with open and broken hearts” the threat that oil drilling poses to the Gwich’in way of life, echoing similar sentiments expressed by the bishops during their September 2017 meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska.General Convention also passed a resolution in 2018 reaffirming the church’s broad commitment to environmental justice work, with an emphasis on “poor communities, those who live closest to the land in subsistence cultures and members of marginalized ethnic groups.”“General Convention and Executive Council have spoken repeatedly about The Episcopal Church’s commitment to finding healthy alternatives to extraction,” Mullen said. “We don’t make wealth for the few off the backs of working people and struggling communities.”Alaska Bishop Mark Lattime said in a written statement to ENS that he worried what expanded drilling in the Arctic could mean for future generations of Gwich’in and the caribou they rely on.“I pray that The Episcopal Church remains faithful in standing with the Gwich’in and the caribou, too,” Lattime said. “As remains our practice, we will listen to the elders and honor their guidance on how best to advocate for their way of life. This year more than any, the best advocacy will take place at the ballot box.”The Episcopal Church’s Washington-based Office of Government Relations encouraged Episcopalians to get involved in the issue by following the Gwich’in Steering Committee and signing up for alerts from the Episcopal Public Policy Network.“For decades, The Episcopal Church, a majority of the American public and members of Congress have opposed drilling in the refuge,” the Office of Government Relations said in a written statement to ENS. “We are deeply grieved that this pristine natural habitat – and source of life for our Gwich’in siblings – is under threat.”The push for more oil exploration seems particularly misguided at a time when communities around the world are increasingly threatened by the potential effects of climate change, said the Rev. Stephanie Johnson, chair of the Task Force on Creation Care and Environmental Racism.“We should be stepping away from all this oil exploration and going toward renewables,” Johnson said in an interview with ENS. She is rector at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Riverside, Connecticut, which was hit hard this month by Tropical Storm Isaias. The storm knocked out power, in some cases for days, and it downed several trees at St. Paul’s, nearly destroying the congregation’s vegetable garden.“God’s creation is groaning right now with pain and suffering,” Johnson said.As for drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, she said, “it’s incomprehensible, to think about the impact on the land there and the people and the animals.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

That is just like that small animals in the forest live while freely coming and going in the lair in the trunk and the surroundings.The lifestyle is not a past lifestyle only moving from the room to the room by the necessity but suitable for animals instinct of human beings because the family can pick out comfortable whereabouts and the sense of distance according to the act , the bystander person, the season and time.Project gallerySee allShow lessRenovation and Extension At St Monica’s College / Branch Studio ArchitectsSelected ProjectsEmerging Architects Austin+Mergold Win Folly 2014Architecture News Share Projects Houses Year:  ArchDaily Photographs Japan Belly House / Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates 2010 Save this picture!© Toshiyuki Yano+ 23 Share Architects: Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates Area Area of this architecture project Belly House / Tomohiro Hata Architect and AssociatesSave this projectSaveBelly House / Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  Area:  43 m² Area:  43 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Kyoto, Japan “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2010 CopyAbout this officeTomohiro Hata Architect and AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKyotoHousesJapanPublished on April 04, 2014Cite: “Belly House / Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates” 04 Apr 2014.

This is achieved through a number of strategies, including exposing the building towards the street to integrate the building into the neighborhood creating strong community ties.+ 13Save this picture!© Lorcan O’Herlihy ArchitectsRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesMetallicsStudcoWall Stop Ends – EzyCapWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeAn elevated community garden offers gathering space for neighbors and residents, connected to the street by a generous staircase. Along with a street-level storefront, this gesture allows for unrestricted interaction between all members of the community and eliminates societal barriers, which is often lacking in social housing projects.Save this picture!© Lorcan O’Herlihy ArchitectsThe complex accommodates 26 identical units, geared towards individual tenants as well as low-income families. The units are connected by staggered walkways as a result of varying widths, which forms additional socializing spaces.Save this picture!Southwest View.
