So why would I buy Lloyds shares in 2021? Put simply, I think the bad news is priced-in.In my view, the Lloyds share price is likely to rise ahead of the market over the next few years. Let me explain why.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. Dividend nightmare will soon be overA significant part of last year’s share price plunge was caused by the suspension of Lloyds’ dividend in April last year. This wasn’t the bank’s choice — the UK banking regulator forced all the big banks to cancel their dividends in order to preserve capital. No payouts were allowed in 2020.The fear was that banks would need their spare cash to fund losses on bad loans. I’ll come back to this subject in a moment, but for now what matters is that in December, the regulator said that banks could restart dividend payments in 2021.The regulator’s view is that Lloyds and other banks are strong enough to handle the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. I agree. Although there will be some restrictions on payouts at first, I expect Lloyds’ dividends to return to an attractive level quite soon.Broker forecasts suggest a forecast yield of 4.3% for 2021, rising to 6.5% in 2022. I think payouts at these levels would be likely to provide a boost to Lloyds’ share price.2. Losses are priced-in to Lloyds’ share priceThe big banks failed miserably in the last major recession and Lloyds ended up needing a government bailout. But things are quite different today.Lloyds went into this crisis with a much stronger balance sheet and plenty of surplus capital. Although the bank expects to record bad debt charges of £4.5bn-£5.5bn for 2020, these losses look manageable to me when compared to shareholders’ equity of £43bn.As I write, a 37p share price means that Lloyds stock trades at a 30% discount to its tangible equity value of 52.2p per share. However, the bank returned to profit in the third quarter with a £1bn profit. If this performance continues in 2021, I’d expect this discount to close.3. New bossI think that CEO António Horta-Osório has done a good job at Lloyds. But after a tough 10 years, he’s moving on. Mr Horta-Osório’s replacement is Charlie Dunn, whose current role is global head of Wealth and Personal Banking at HSBC.I expect that Mr Dunn will be keen to promote growth in more profitable areas, such as wealth management. He may also adjust the group’s UK strategy to support long-term growth. This could drive a significant revaluation of the business.Why I’d buy Lloyds sharesLet me sum up. Over the next year or so, I think we’ll see Lloyds’ dividend return to something like its pre-crisis level. If I buy the shares at their current level, I’d expect a 4%+ yield this year.Looking further ahead, I expect the bank’s new management to focus on improving profitability. Even a small improvement could drive Lloyds’ share price much higher, in my view.More profitable specialist banks already trade at a premium to their book value — for Lloyds, this could see the shares double from current levels.There are no guarantees, of course. But I’d buy Lloyds today without too much worry.center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Bringing the Episcopal Church to Poland

first_img Curate Diocese of Nebraska Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS [Episcopal News Service] On March 31, I spent a day with Poles from a wide range of backgrounds gathered at St. Martin’s Lutheran Church in Krakow to participate in a process of discerning whether to establish an Episcopal Church community in Poland. Supported by a generous grant from the Evangelical Education Society, I designed this program along with co-organizers Jarek Kubacki and Lukasz Liniewicz. They run a bilingual Polish/English blog, Don’t Shoot the Prophet, that promotes the teachings of the Episcopal Church for a Polish audience. Along with us, Bishop Pierre Whalon of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe spoke and celebrated the first-known Eucharist according to the Anglican rite in the history of Krakow.When Jarek and Lukasz began their blog in 2009, their purpose was to portray the Episcopal Church in a positive light to Poles who’d only ever heard about the church in the context of controversy and schism. But the interest generated by the blog led to people asking about having an Episcopal Church presence in Poland. From these requests grew the inspiration for the meeting this weekend.Those who gathered represented the current state of religious life in Poland. Attendees were from Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, Reformed and Old Catholic backgrounds. Many who attended were unable to participate fully in the current forms of church life and leadership in Poland because of their gender or sexual orientation. While small sectarian churches have sprouted up that are inclusive in nature, the participants didn’t see these churches as an option. There is nothing in Poland like the Episcopal Church, a church that is rooted in the catholic traditions of the ancient church while intellectually open, ordered according to the apostolic succession and retaining the primacy of Scripture while also admitting all people to all forms of ordained ministry, including women and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.As we discerned together, it soon became clear that those who had come to this meeting keenly felt the need in Poland for an Anglican way of being Christian found in the Episcopal Church. People expressed joy and gratitude that the Episcopal Church provides a way of being faithful to the apostolic traditions of the ancient church while remaining truly open to all people. As a result, plans are already underway for a retreat focusing on Anglican prayer and spirituality sponsored by the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe to be held this June in the city of Poznan.These days it seems like the only news we Episcopalians pay attention to is the bad news of Anglican Communion conflicts, budget crunches and declining numbers. But this Saturday in Poland was a whisper of good news that should be shouted from the rooftops. The Episcopal Church has a clear message that has been received with enthusiasm by a group of Poles, virtually all of them under the age of 40 and many of them still in college. They see in the Episcopal Church a way of following Jesus that allows them to maintain their core identity of believers in the Gospel while being fully open to all. This is a message that resonates not only in Poland but throughout Europe, where the Episcopal Church is growing. The genius of Anglicanism is that it provides a way of being part of the broad catholic traditions of the church while able to adapt itself to local contexts. This weekend a Rite II Eucharist from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer was celebrated in Polish. If God is willing, in a few years it might be celebrated weekly and in many places in Poland. And if in Poland, why not elsewhere in Eastern Europe?The big message for Episcopalians from the meeting in Krakow this weekend is to take heart. Look past the anxiety of decline and talk of schism. There are many people thirsting for the teachings of Jesus that we offer. They will gladly receive it if only we follow the call of Jesus to go out and offer it.— Daniel Joslyn-Siemiatkoski is associate professor of church history at Church Divinity School of the Pacific.

April 3, 2012 at 10:42 pm I have to say, I find this more than a little bit troubling. By hitching ourselves to the brand of a particular socio-political movement (“progressivism, ” in this case, but it could just as easily be a “conservative” cause), marketing ourselves toward a particular demographic that we figure might be predisposed to find us congenial, we make ourselves a *mere* denomination–a boutique label–rather than a church that claims to be an heir to the tradition of Catholic Christianity. And in doing so independently of other Anglican bodies, we only confirm the unflattering stereotypes of American imperialism. Have we learned nothing from the post-2003 debacle that we caused?

This, in itself, is a wonderful contribution during your sabbatical.center_img April 6, 2012 at 1:49 pm You are correct. But the essence of the matter is not the Anglican Church. It is the new evagelization by the Protestant Episcopal Church in USA, to substitute the downfall of the C. of E. as the head of anglicanism throughout the world, with TEC’s revisionistic approaches. January 28, 2013 at 5:44 pm This is great news. As an American of Polish/Hungarian/Austrian heritage, I always felt a sense of guilt that I had to remain Roman Catholic because it was the church of my ancestors, even though it was not the denomination closest to my own beliefs. The more I learned about the Episcopal church, it became my convinced opinion that the church’s teachings reflected the way I felt the RC church ought to be. It retains the beauty of the rituals, eases up on the guilt trips and is open to issues like womens ordination. There is a real sense of fullness in their celebration of the Eucharist each week.The only factor that’s a little uncomfortable for me is that, in the USA, Episcopalians do have a tendency to be wealthy, even though they are very welcoming folks. But there’s always a little bit of a “keeping up with the Joneses” feeling that’s dispersed, through manner of dress and individual economic success. On the whole, however, they are very friendly to newcomers and non-judgmental.

Auckland diocese to divest from fossil fuels

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Featured Events Tags Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Smithfield, NC [Anglican Taonga] The Diocese of Auckland has decided to divest from the fossil fuels industry – the first institutional body in New Zealand to do so.On the final day of its annual meeting September 7, the Diocesan Synod voted overwhelmingly to support a motion calling on the diocese to withdraw its investments from companies whose main business is the extraction and/or production of fossil fuels.The decision is a landmark event for environmental action in New Zealand.The diocese thus becomes the first body in New Zealand to join the global divestment movement initiated by the international climate action organization, 350.orgThe Rev. Mathew Newton, of St Paul’s Symonds Street, who introduced the synod motion, stressed in his speech the moral argument for fossil fuel divestment, saying “global climate change … will have its greatest effect on those who have the least access to the world’s resources and who have contributed least to its cause — not least in the Pacific islands where sea level rise already poses a grave threat.”The move to divest was a question of “moral consistency,” Newton said. “If we are making efforts to reduce our carbon emissions on the one hand, it doesn’t make sense for us to be financing the fossil fuel industry through our investments on the other.”Assistant Auckland Bishop Jim White added: “Where we invest our money speaks of our long-term hopes. Not investing in the fossil fuels industry speaks of hopes for a different, cleaner and more sustainable energy industry.“Jesus speaks of ‘where your treasure is there your heart will be also.’ Our heart is for a greener future.”The divestment motion was co-sponsored by the Diocesan Climate Change Action Group, extending its legacy of sustainability initiatives in the diocese.The convenor of the group, Richard Milne, welcomed the strong support for the motion, saying “it is a simple yet powerful step that sends a clear signal of how important it is for us to move rapidly towards renewable sources of energy.”The Auckland divestment motion follows similar steps by churches in other countries, including the USA, the UK and Australia.Similar motions calling for fossil fuel divestment will be brought before other Anglican synods across New Zealand in the coming weeks.

Currie Cup best tries mix – Rounds 12, 13 & 14

first_imgThursday Oct 15, 2009 Currie Cup best tries mix – Rounds 12, 13 & 14 The Currie Cup has now reached the Semi Final stage, with the top four sides in South African provincial rugby going head to head this weekend for a place in the final of the longest running domestic rugby competition in the world. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve posted highlights from the tournament, so today we’ve got a compilation of some of the best tries scored over the last three rounds. After 14 matches each, the top four are the Natal Sharks, Western Province, the Blue Bulls, and Freestate, who squeezed in ahead of the Griquas, who were the early front runners, despite being a traditionally smaller union. So the Sharks will host the Cheetahs in Durban on Saturday, and the Blue Bulls will travel to Newlands in Cape Town to face Western Province. This selection of tries features a bit of the best from all sides involved in the Semis, and others. We start with that classic try from Fabian Juries, and also include another two great moments from the Sevens flyer. Another stand out is a superb try by runaway train Tiaan Liebenberg for Western Province against Boland. Anyone who’s seen him play (he was at Toulon last season incidentally) will know that he’s one of the hardest running hookers in the game. Great stuff from the big guy. The table topping Sharks scored a few great tries too, with Ruan Pienaar, hooker Craig Burden, and number eight Ryan Kankowski all finishing off neat team efforts. The last try for Kankowski was made by the unstoppable Jean Deysel, who as usual, swats off tacklers like flies. One of the best tries though was scored by Griquas centre Barry Geel, who got on the end of a brilliant move, fumbled, but then regathered brilliantly.

Rally demands: MOVE children deserve to rest in peace

first_imgPhiladelphiaYahNé Ndgo opened the rally outside the Penn Museum in Philadelphia April 28 by denouncing the University of Pennsylvania’s sadistic desecration of the remains of two young Black MOVE family members. Ndgo, representing Black Lives Matter Philadelphia, stated: “We can never forget the humanity of Black people, and we should never have to remind people of the value of our lives. Black and Brown bodies are not subjects for you to study. We are human beings, and our lives matter!”Banner honoring Tree and Delisha Africa leads march in Philadelphia on April 28.Nearly 400 people attended the rally, including UPenn students and faculty. It followed a press conference with the MOVE family April 26, after news surfaced that anthropology professors at the school and Princeton University had kept the remains of Tree Africa, 14, and Delisha Africa, 12, who were killed May 13, 1985, when the police dropped an incendiary bomb on MOVE’s house.City officials let the resulting fire burn as police fired tens of thousands of bullets at the burning house, preventing anyone from leaving it. The resulting conflagration killed 11 people, including five children, and destroyed 61 homes in a residential Black neighborhood.Murder and then more inhumanityAt the rally, Mike Africa Jr., son of MOVE 9 members Debbie Africa and Mike Africa, recalled having played with the children killed in the fire. He said: “The medical examiner was paid to find out how our people died. They took the bodies to a lab, left them unrefrigerated and let the bodies decompose. This was so egregious they were fired. The people from Penn Museum who took over were supposed to be ethical, but they are the monsters we are talking about today.”Africa read from a quote located below the graphic of a helicopter dropping a bomb from MOVE’s popular orange-on-black “Welcome to Philadelphia” T-shirt. The quote reads: “This was not an accident. This was deliberate murder. The circumstances surrounding it were horrible, and even more horrible to me was the fact that the perpetrators basically were never in any way punished.” That was said by the forensic anthropologist Dr. Alan Mann, who was hired by the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office to analyze the remains of those killed in the fire.Africa said: “Alan Mann is the same monster who has done these horrible things to my sisters. The other monster, Janet Monge, is on a video describing how my sister suffered a bone fracture ‘because something heavy probably landed on her.’”Mann worked at the Penn Museum where he reportedly subjected the bones to detailed analysis, but later used the children’s remains as science specimens in anthropology classes. The bones were kept in cardboard boxes in non-climate-controlled storage. When Mann transferred to Princeton in 2001, he took the remains with him.The children’s remains were purportedly bounced back and forth between the two Ivy League institutions over the decades. Their parents, still alive, were never informed.In 2019, the remains were held at Penn Museum where Monge, Mann’s former student, used them in instructional online videos offered by Princeton and UPenn. Once again, this was done without consent of the children’s relatives.Monge’s course was titled: “Real Bones: Adventures in Forensic Anthropology” — and MOVE is referred to as a “case study!” The videos, which were available for viewing in classes that began the week of April 19, have been taken down due to protests.While UPenn officials have issued two apologies which have been published by news outlets, they have yet to apologize to MOVE family members in person.  They also claim they do not have the remains, nor do they know where they are.Museum’s 134-year racist history Abdul Aliy Muhammad broke the news about the children’s remains in a Philadelphia Inquirer opinion piece published April 21. He stated at the rally: “Two years ago we found out that Penn Museum had the remains of 53 people thought to have been enslaved on plantations in Cuba. When we demanded reparations, Penn started a committee to ‘consider the issue.’ A year later we learned that they also had 14 craniums of Black people dug up from graves where Franklin [athletic] Field is today.”Muhammad told the crowd, “This is disgusting, this is gross. This is not okay.”News of the MOVE children’s remains came just days after Penn Museum officials made a commitment to repatriate Black and Indigenous remains held for over a century in their Samuel Morton Collection of Human Crania. Morton had used the collection of 1,000 skulls of enslaved African and captured Indigenous people in a racist study aimed to perpetrate a false theory of white supremacy.Morton’s “experiments” were used to justify removal of Indigenous people in the 1830s and later were part of a pattern of nonconsensual experimentation on Black people for medical purposes. One was the infamous 40-year Tuskegee Institute “experiment,” where hundreds of Black men were deliberately left untreated for syphilis, even after penicillin was found to be a cure in 1947.Rally speakers called for Monge to be fired and for restitution and accountability from UPenn, emphasizing that Tree Africa and Delisha Africa deserve to rest in peace. Pam Africa, Minister of Confrontation for the MOVE family, said, “The bomb they dropped on our family is exploding 36 years later and exposing the intent of the cops to kill John Africa and all of our family.”The rally was followed by a march to the campus home of UPenn President Amy Gutmann, where demonstrators blocked traffic on Walnut Street for over an hour. Speakers announced that the 36th anniversary observation of the MOVE bombing will be held in Philadelphia May 15.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Is Cuba heading towards a repeat of the 2003 Black Spring?

October 12, 2018 Find out more CubaAmericas Follow the news on Cuba Receive email alerts Organisation center_img Reporters Without Borders is worried about the situation of journalists in Cuba, where there have been cases of physical attacks, arbitrary detention, death threats and blocking of access to information in recent days.Hablemos Press, an independent news agency and free speech NGO, has been directly targeted by the Internal Security Department. Police physically attacked its editor, Roberto de Jesús Guerra, in Havana on 11 June. According to his wife, Hablemos Press reporter Magaly Otero Suarez, he is currently immobilized at home with multiple injuries to the face and right foot.A car ran down Raúl Ramirez Puig, a Hablemos Press correspondent in Mayabeque province, on 7 June. One of the two people in the car told him: “Anything can happen.”Mario Hechavarría Driggs, who also works for Hablemos Press, was the latest victim of arbitrary arrest when Internal Security Department officials arrested him on 8 June. Journalism student Yeander Farrés Delgado was also arrested while photographing the capitol building in Havana (now the headquarters of the science, technology and environment ministry) and was held for five hours.“Although the Castro regime gives the appearance of opening up politically, the methods used by the authorities to silence dissident journalists are clearly becoming more and more brutal,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The last of the journalists arrested in the Black Spring of 2003 was freed in 2011, but since then we have seen a gradual increase in repression.”Hablemos Press reported on 11 June that it has received repeated telephone threats in the past two months. After taking several threatening calls on the Hablemos Press phone line, Otero was summoned by the Internal Security Department on 12 June, and told to moderate the tone of the agency’s articles, which have irritated the government.The authorities have also gone so far as to disconnect the mobile phones of De Jesus Guerra, Otero and Arian Guerra, another Hablemos Press journalist, from Cuba’s sole mobile phone network, provided by state-owned ETECSA, to hamper their communications.“What happens to the right to information if the government blocks phone connections at will and Internet use is extremely limited in Cuba?” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “We call on the Cuban authorities to restore the phone connections of Hablemos Press’ journalists without delay.”Reporters Without Borders also condemns the conditions in which the authorities have been holding the independent journalist Juliet Michelena Díaz in Havana since 7 April without any court decision in her case. She was initially accused of threatening a neighbour, but the charge was changed to “terrorism” within a week of her arrest.Yayabo Press journalist Yoenni de Jesus Guerra García has meanwhile been held since October 2013 and was given a seven-year jail term in March. And the blogger Ángel Santiesteban-Prats, one of the 100 “information heroes” profiled by RWB in May, has been held on trumped-up charges since February 2013.Cuba is ranked 170th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. This is the lowest ranking of any country in the western hemisphere.
