Generate a sustainable passive income today with bargain dividend stocks The outlook for the world economy continues to be highly uncertain. Risks such as a global trade war and geopolitical challenges in the US, Europe and China could cause downgrades to GDP growth in 2020. Furthermore, a bear market could be on the horizon after a decade-long bull market.However, such a situation could present a buying opportunity for income-seeking investors. It may enable them to buy high-quality stocks while they offer high dividend yields. In many cases they offer long-term growth potential, with history showing that the stock market has always recovered from uncertain periods to produce new record highs.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…Of course, diversifying among a range of stocks is a shrewd move. It can help to reduce risk and deliver a sustainable passive income in the long run.Investing opportunitiesAs mentioned, the prospects for the world economy are uncertain at the present time. This is not a major surprise, since global growth has been upbeat for many years. Since there has never been a ‘boom’ period that has lasted in perpetuity, it seems likely that economic challenges could be ahead.While this may cause paper losses for investors in the short run, it also provides an opportunity to capitalise on the cyclicality of the stock market. In other words, investors appear to have factored in some of the risks facing the world economy. This means that a large range of high-quality stocks now trade on low ratings and high dividend yields. They may, therefore, be well-placed to deliver capital growth and impressive income returns in the coming years.Growth potentialOf course, a difficult period for the world economy is highly unlikely to last in perpetuity. It has never done so in the past, while the growth potential of major economies such as India and China seem to be high. They are forecast to enjoy a high rate of growth over the next few decades, in fact, and could provide fertile operating environments for a wide range of businesses.Therefore, investing in stocks may not prove to be a highly profitable move in the short run due to the risks faced by the world economy. But it is likely to be a worthwhile decision in the long run, with a number of high-quality companies that have sound fundamentals likely to produce profit and dividend growth in the coming years.DiversificationClearly, buying a wide range of companies that operate in multiple sectors and geographies is a sound move. It helps to reduce risk and may mean that your passive income is more sustainable and less dependent on the financial performance of a small number of companies.With it being relatively straightforward to diversify through products such as a tracker fund, as well as through buying companies at minimal cost via online sharedealing, now could be the right time to build a portfolio of income shares. It could lead to a high and growing passive income in 2020 and beyond.

In a letter to the diocese, Hanley wrote, “My reasons for this are quite simple. First, it is time for me. By the date of my retirement, I will be 66 years old and I will have served as deacon, priest, or bishop for just under 40 years. I feel that God is now calling me to focus [on my family and] being a parishioner in the church.”Hanley was ordained and consecrated in April 2010 to lead a diocese of 71 congregations and more than 15,000 parishioners. His ministry has included an emphasis on social justice issues, particularly through expanding the diocesan commitment to Latino ministry and his involvement with Bishops United Against Gun Violence. Hanley also serves as part of the Common Table group of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, which seeks to build relationships between religious leaders and provide a united voice of faith on community topics.The Standing Committee will oversee the process, which is expected to include an electing convention in June 2020. Further details will be published, but the process typically includes the formation of search and transition committees, the creation of a diocesan profile, and a period of nominations before the slate is announced.Hanley concluded his letter, “Thank you, good people, for your help and support over these past nine years. Thank you for your prayers and, perhaps most of all, thank you for allowing me into your diocesan family. It has been an honor and privilege to serve the church with you. I look forward to the rest of my time with you as your bishop.” Rector Pittsburgh, PA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI 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 Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Tags Featured Jobs & Calls Press Release Service Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Knoxville, TN 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 Submit a Press Release Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Hopkinsville, KY Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Youth Minister Lorton, VA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT House of Bishops Rector Martinsville, VA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Tampa, FL Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Associate Rector Columbus, GA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Belleville, IL Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI 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 Rector Smithfield, NC 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 Bishop of Oregon Michael Hanley announces intention to retire January 2021 Rector Collierville, TN This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Bishop Elections, Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28
Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Posted Mar 23, 2020 Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Martinsville, VA Tags [Anglican Communion News Service] The once-a-decade gathering of the bishops of the Anglican Communion, which was to be held in Canterbury, Kent, in July and August this year, has been rescheduled for 2021 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.The decision was taken today by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby following consultation with a range of stakeholders, including the trustees of the Lambeth Conference Company, the charitable organization which runs the conference on behalf of the archbishop of Canterbury. In recent weeks the Lambeth Conference organizing teams have been prayerfully thinking through the impact of coronavirus pandemic on the plans and preparations for this important event. Welby has consulted a number of key players, including his fellow primates – the leaders of the 40 autonomous churches of the Anglican Communion.In a video message, the Welby, said: “The place of a bishop at a time of difficulty is a place of a shepherd when the wolf is attacking the flock. It is to be with them. To be alongside them. To love them. To suffer with them.“Because of the coronavirus, travel around the world is deeply restricted and the amount of time that we will face these limitations is unknown. For these reasons, so that we may be good shepherds as bishops in the Anglican world, and encourage the church to be there for God’s suffering world, we have decided to reschedule and postpone the conference and to put it forward till 2021 at pretty well the same time.“We’ll write to the bishops with the exact dates as soon as we have them fixed. In other words, a delay of one year. We are absolutely not cancelling. When we come together it will be in a world reshaped by what is going on at the moment, and it is ever more important that we meet to pray, to study the scriptures, to hear the word of God, to comfort, to gain a fresh vision of what it is to be God’s Church for God’s World.“Someone pointed out today that the Lambeth Conference of 1920 delayed from 1918, met in the shadow of the First World War, that the conference of 1948 met in the shadow of the Second World War. Both of them having seen terrible events, God send that we do not see anything like that. But let us remember that as we come together and share our wisdom, we will need to hear from the Spirit through each other to think and ponder and study, to worship and pray.”“Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the Lambeth Conference Company has been monitoring the situation and following advice from public health authorities,” a spokesperson for the Lambeth Conference company said. “The public health risk of the coronavirus in the United Kingdom has now been assessed as “high” by the U.K.’s chief medical officers and a wide range of governmental measures are in place to respond to the health crisis.“This significant meeting of Anglican bishops and spouses will continue to be planned- with an exciting and engaging programme, being held in the same venue at the University of Kent and Canterbury Cathedral – just one year on.“We recognize that this will be a significant disappointment for all those registered to attend. Whether that’s as an event delegate; participating in the hospitality programme; contributing to the conference programme; being part of our resource center or serving as a volunteer or steward at the event. Especially as the Lambeth Conference in 2020 was set to be the largest conference yet. However, the health and safety of our event attendees is our utmost priority.” Submit a Press Release Rector Washington, DC Featured Events 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 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL 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 Associate Rector Columbus, GA Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Smithfield, NC Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Anglican Communion, Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Lambeth Conference Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit a Job Listing Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops postponed to 2021 Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Bath, NC COVID-19, Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Press Release Service Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Youth Minister Lorton, VA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Collierville, TN Rector Knoxville, TN AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Belleville, IL Health & Healthcare, Featured Jobs & Calls The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Shreveport, LA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Tampa, FL Submit an Event Listing Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

June 2, 2021 Find out more In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival photo : David Robie/PMC Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns Indonesia’s double dealing, hosting the 24th annual celebration of World Press Freedom Day in Jakarta with UNESCO while continuing to harass independent journalists in West Papua, the Indonesian half of the island of New Guinea, with impunity. News RSF_en News Follow the news on Asia – Pacific IndonesiaPapua New GuineaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Another French journalist, Cyril Payen, was refused permission to return to Indonesia in 2016 after France 24 broadcast a documentary he had made about West Papua, entitled “Forgotten war of the Papuas.” He had had nonetheless obtained all the necessary authorizations before visiting West Papua to film for the documentary in 2015. Organisation IndonesiaPapua New GuineaAsia – Pacific to go further Yance Wenda, a photographer for the local news website Jubi, was arrested and beaten by police yesterday, the eve of World Press Freedom Day, while he was covering a peaceful demonstration in Sentani, a suburb of Jayapura, West Papua’s largest city. After being held for four hours, Wenda told the BenarNews website that the police began hitting him with “hands, guns and cane” without giving him a chance to show them his media assignment letter. Jayapura police chief Gustav Urbinas acknowledged that Wenda was arrested but denied that the police hit him. Wenda nonetheless took photos of his injuries and posted them online as evidence of the police brutality.“We firmly condemn the police violence against Yance Wenda and we call for an investigation so that both the perpetrators and their superiors, who endorse their brutality, can be brought to justice,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of RSF’s Asia- Pacific desk. “Indonesia is in the bottom third of the 2017 World Press Index and this beating, the latest in a long series of attacks on media freedom in West Papua in recent months, constitutes yet further evidence that it did not deserve to host the World Press Freedom Day celebration.”Ismaïl added: “UNESCO and all the political figures gathered in Jakarta must condemn the violence and ask President Joko Widodo to stop playing a double game that consists of promoting media freedom with the international community while continuing to crack down in West Papua.”Indonesia is ranked 124th out of 180 countries in the 2017 World Press Freedom Index that RSF published on 26 April. It is not unusual for both local and foreign journalists to be threatened anonymously or by the authorities and to be forced to censor themselves. Last week, the West Papua police seized TV reporter Richardo Hutahaean’s camera and deleted its contents. Hutahaean, who heads an association of Papua TV journalists, and two colleagues also received death threats after a covering a court hearing on a dispute between local politicians.Because of the alarming media freedom situation in West Papua, the harassment of journalists and the frequent refusal to give press visas to foreign journalists, human rights organizations plan to protest during the events organized by UNESCO and the Indonesian government in order to press the international community to react. RSF expresses its support for the Legal Aid Centre for the Press (LBH Pers), which organized a public discussion on media freedom in West Papua on 2 April.The foreign media are usually prevented from working in West Papua and on the rare occasions when they are allowed to operate there, they are kept under close surveillance. French journalists Franck Escudie and Basile Longchamp were deported on 17 March after arriving in West Papua to film for a documentary.

The Home Energy Saving Scheme is for private, middle income homes and will provide funding for people to install roof insulation, cavity wall insulation, internal wall insulation, external wall insulation, high efficiency boiler plus heating control upgrade and a heating control upgrade. The Warmer Homes Scheme is part of the Low Income Housing Programme and is aimed at those on low incomes or a social welfare allowance. This programme provides for the install of energy efficiency measures in low income and local authority housing through community based organisations. Energy efficiency improvements include upgrading the fabric of the building with attic insulation, cavity wall insulation, draught proofing and providing lagging jackets. “It’s estimated that by putting in place the right energy efficiency measures the average household can save up to 700 euro a year on their heating bills,” said Deputy Niall Collins. “That is a considerable amount of money and it really emphasises the benefits that can be secured by taking part in these schemes.“Not only will you receive a grant to help install these insulation measures but the fact is that it will also reduce you electricity, gas and heating bills every year. It’s a win, win for everyone. By insulating our homes we’re also protecting the environment and reducing our carbon emissions, which is something that everyone should be encouraging.” Linkedin Print Advertisement
