No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm BRITAIN’S FTSE 100 is seen gaining more than eight per cent by the end of 2011, with equity investors shrugging off economic gloom, a Reuters poll, published yesterday, found.The median forecast of 19 equity strategists indicated the FTSE 100 would rise to 5,950 by mid-2011, up 2.4 per cent from its close on Tuesday of 5,808.45, and up 8.5 per cent by the end of the year.The median estimate was almost unchanged from a September poll for mid-2011. Forecasts for this period ranged from 5,000 to 6,500, highlighting the uncertainty on whether European debt problems and a vulnerable economy could hit equities.“Eurozone stability is key to index performance over the coming months,” Martin Dobson, director at Westhouse Securities, said.“With the US more than likely to supply more quantitative easing, the focus is on whether further bailouts will be required in the Eurozone.”The FTSE peaked in 2010 at 5,902.11 on 9?November, but quickly fell away as Ireland became the latest Eurozone nation to become embroiled in a sovereign debt crisis.Out of 12 common contributors, eight upgraded their mid-2011 targets, while four downgraded theirs from the last poll in September.Forecasters in the same poll taken a year ago called the FTSE’s 2010 performance about right – they said it would rise just over seven per cent, compared with actual gains of 7.31 per cent so far this year. The FTSE 100 has gained around seven per cent in 2010 and is 21 per cent higher since hitting its 2010 low on 1 July, and is forecast to reach 6,300 by the end of 2011 as investors focus on the ability of companies to grow profits.

The Committee said these standards should specify requirements for privacy, safety, security, data handling, usability, accessibility and auditing of age-verification providers.It highlighted existing technical standards used for age verification in Australia and overseas, including the UK’s Age Verification Certificate and the PAS 1296 Age Checking code of practice, Australia’s Trusted Digital Identity Framework, and the European Union General Data Protection Regulation.A further recommendation said that the Office of the eSafety Commissioner or other relevant government department should report to the government on the various options for restricting access to loot boxes and other simulated gambling elements in computer and video games to players aged 18 or over.Meanwhile, the Committee urged the Digital Transformation Agency to extend its Digital Identity program to include an age verification exchange in order to allow for third-party online age verification.The government should introduce a requirement that consumers would not able to use an online wagering service without first being verified by the operator that they are 18, it explained. This, the Committee said, should be integrated into the National Consumer Protection Framework for Online Wagering.In addition, the Committee said that the eSafety Commissioner should seek to develop new educational resources to help inform parents about the various risks associated with online gambling, as well as help them to reduce children and young people’s exposure to online gambling.The recommendations come after the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children’s (LSAC) annual statistical report in December last year revealed that just under one in six Australians aged 16-17 gambled in the past year.Of the 15.7% of participants who said they gambled, most were boys, with just over 19% of boys and 12% of girls taking part in gambling activities. Private bets with friends or family – the only legal type of bet a 16 or 17-year-old can partake in – were the most common form of betting.

I’d invest £5,000 in FTSE 100 shares like this right now Despite recent rises in the stock market, a few sectors remain stuck in the mud and some shares look as if they could move lower still. For example, I’m avoiding banks, such as Lloyds and Barclays. And I’m giving International Consolidated Airlines a miss, along with the rest of the sector.But as one-time US hedge fund manager Jim Cramer recently mentioned, some sectors look well-placed to thrive in a world featuring Covid-19. So, I’d look for shares in those perky-looking industries, such as Healthcare, IT, Consumer Staples and Drinks.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…HealthcareIt’s fair to say the market has recognised the improving prospects of AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN). A significant rerating has occurred in the company’s valuation over past few months and years. Now, with the share price near 8,750p, the forward-looking earnings multiple for 2021 sits just below 22.However, the firm has been punching out some impressive double- and treble-digit percentage projections for annual increases in earnings. For many years the word among the investing community was AstraZeneca had a lot of potential in its research and development pipeline. And the community was correct. New products are now hitting decent sales figures and driving the re-rating in the shares.Indeed, the dark days of the firm’s patent-cliff headaches seem but a distant memory now that the stock is flying. But I’d still buy on dips and down-days because I believe the company has a bright future.I’d also consider cheaper looking alternatives in the FTSE 100, such as GlaxoSmithKline and Hikma Pharmaceuticals.Information TechnologyIntegrated accounting, payroll, and payments solutions provider Sage has been busy migrating its customers to cloud-based services. There’s a strong recurring revenue base and the company has long been a consistent cash flow grower.Meanwhile, engineering, design and information management software provider Aveva has been a darling of the stock market over the past 10 years or so. Indeed, the share has multi-bagged for its shareholders. But with the forward-looking earnings multiple for the trading year to March 2021 above 30, it looks expensive. Nevertheless, this is a strong company and a robust-looking stock. I’d want to own it.Consumer Staples and DrinksThe consumer staples and drinks sectors are renowned for producing defensive and gently growing companies with stable cash-generating businesses. This is fertile ground for finding firms capable of paying steady and rising dividends.We can find fast-moving consumer staples providers in giants such as Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser. And I’d widen the definition of what’s considered a consumer staple to include cigarette and tobacco providers such as British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands.Meanwhile, the FTSE 100 is home to premium branded alcoholic drinks giant Diageo, which has been a great performer over the years. It looks well-placed to shine for its shareholders in the future as well.

Alan Oscroft | Sunday, 31st May, 2020 A Cash ISA isn’t a great investment at the best of times. In recent years, the best instant access interest rate you could get has been around 1.5%, or even lower. That’s been below inflation so, in real terms, a Cash ISA would actually lose you money. How does saving tax on the paltry return you do get compensate for that? Well, it simply can’t.Right now, the Cash ISA situation is even worse, with instant access rates falling towards 1%. There’s even been speculation that interest rates could turn negative, with banks charging you for looking after your money. I don’t see things getting that bad, but what use is a 1% annual return from your 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…The obvious rejoinder is that if you’d had your savings in a Cash ISA at the start of 2020, you’d have escaped the Covid-19 stock market crash. That much is true, certainly. And if you know how to predict the timing of the next crash then, by all means, switch to a Cash ISA just before it happens. Then switch back to shares just at the lowest point of the slump.Of course, nobody can do that. And if you always keep your money in a Cash ISA as a precaution, you’re losing out on the much better returns that the stock market has historically provided. Long term, investing in UK shares has produced returns of 4.9% above inflation. That includes reinvesting all dividends in more shares.If a Cash ISA is a poor long-term choice, then putting your money in one right now could be a significantly worse decision. So what is the best strategy for times like now? Let’s look at how the FTSE 100 has performed after previous crashes.Cash ISA?Back in early 2016, the UK was in something of a slump, with the Brexit referendum looming. The FTSE 100 hit a low in early February that year, after losing 1,600 points in the previous 12 months. Had you bailed out at that point and moved to a Cash ISA, you’d have pocketed your 1.5% or so over the next year. But you’d have missed out on a storming 24% recovery for the FTSE 100 in the following 12 months. But that’s just the rise in share prices. You’d have earned some dividend income too.Now let’s look back further to the banking crisis of 2008. Over the course of a 12-month period to rock-bottom in March 2008, the FTSE 100 lost 40% of its value. The story is the same again, only better. Those unlucky enough to buy into a Cash ISA at the low point could only sit and watch Stocks and Shares ISA investors talking a 46% profit over the next year. Oh, and earned dividends again.Familiar storyWe can look back over the past century and the story is the same. Every time the FTSE 100 crashes, it comes storming back stronger. And usually relatively quickly. And over the really long term, the UK stock market has wiped the floor with any cash-based investment.I’m not saying we’re out of the current crisis, and I do think there’s a reasonable chance we could see a double-dip FTSE 100 slump. But the evidence shows that a Stocks and Shares ISA is a much better bet than a Cash ISA. Especially when stock markets are down. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Alan Oscroft

Carolyn G. Valentine says: Jon Spangler says: June 1, 2017 at 11:46 pm Thank you, Presiding Bishop Curry. We will persist. Melissa Ridlon says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC June 3, 2017 at 12:38 pm I totally agree with you, Mike. Even during the last 4000 years the earth has warmed and cooled. Man probably didn’t cause those changes. Max Higgs says: Rector Martinsville, VA The Very Rev. Canon Ian Elliott Davies says: June 1, 2017 at 7:57 pm You know,Bishop, you’re not always right. Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Comments navigation Newer comments June 4, 2017 at 7:56 am I agree with what you have stated. It seems the The Episcopal Church has ceased worshiping the creator, and rather, worships the creation. Scrpiture is replaced by feelings, or quoted out of context. Every year the Episcopal church descends into obscurity and irreverence. Go ahead, Episcopal Church, continue to worship the planet, celebrate sin and mock God. Why does it matter? Your lampsyand left decades ago, you’re nothing but dead bones in fine vestments. Lynda Strecker says: Donald Trump, June 1, 2017 at 9:44 pm I am saddened by anyone who supports President Donald John Trump, where his social justice decisions and climate change issues are concerned. THe wisdom expressed by my Anglican brother in the Catholic episcopate reflects my own. I pray that he and anyone else who puts job over environment is engaging in a deceptive choice. June 2, 2017 at 3:43 am This IS the faith. Not a religiosphere where we can hide. This is our planet home. We ignore it to our peril. Submit a Job Listing An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET June 1, 2017 at 6:05 pm The presiding bishop did not mention that the president was open to renogtiating the terms of the accord as it appliies to the United states. So he is misrepresenting the truth. Also..to my knowledge the EPA has not been disbanded..so the vast majority of existing polution controls and thousands of environmental regulations put on place since 1970 or so are still in place. It only changes our leadership role in this one area. I thought that leading from behind sometimes was a good thing. Maybe it is in this case. Why not wait to see how China and India’s economies are impacted by voluntary reductions in carbon emissions first and then readjust our thinking later once we have real world impacts built into our economic models. Making decisions based on observable data in this regard might yield better decisions in the long term. June 2, 2017 at 10:24 am Amen! I agree that our PB is made the best statement for TEC & probably for all Christians world wide. Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET June 1, 2017 at 10:00 pm God created all that is with a purpose. God flooded the world to rid it of man. We are foolish to believe we can destroy that which God has made. The bishop should deal with healing the episcopal church an less trying to be a part politician. Just my opinion June 2, 2017 at 5:31 pm I fully support Presiding Bishop Curry. As Americans, we are still entitled to free speech expressing our individual opinions. In that spirit, I will uphold the right of free speech , freedom of religion and my choice to follow Jesus’s teachings and my right to assemble. I would appreciate all in this body to reaffirm those freedoms for all, for the beauty of the Earth and to the Glory of God. Jan Nunley+ says: June 3, 2017 at 5:48 pm Bishop McMannes,You wrote: “Pray. Teach. Exhort. Encourage and pray some more.”That is precisely what I believe we should do as a church to fulfill our God-given stewardship for God’s creation, as Presiding Bishop Michael Curry is reminding us. After all, “The earth is the Lord’s and all the fullness thereof…” (PS 24) The overwhelming scientific evidence from all sectors shows us that human industrial activity has caused global climate destabilization. It is our responsibility to discern the truth about our world and act upon it. President Trump has–once again–distorted the truth to fit his personal goals to the detriment of the world community, the poor and disenfranchised, and the entire planet. (“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness…” ISA 5:20)As Christians who believe in Christ’s reign and His grace, we must “walk while you have the Light,” for “the one who walks in darkness does not know where he is going” (John 12:35-36). We cannot afford to walk in the darkness of ignorance or misinformation regarding the fate of our planet and its peoples, either. This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 June 1, 2017 at 5:37 pm Good for Trump … my father was an astronomer who said a few years ago, “The Ice Caps on Mars are melting, so it’s obviously our faults.” Tonya Riley says: June 1, 2017 at 5:56 pm What a sadly ignorant comment in this day and age. June 1, 2017 at 5:13 pm I am thankful for the strength and wisdom shown by our President in this matter and saddened by the position that the church has taken in regard to environmental issues. Rector Collierville, TN June 1, 2017 at 9:55 pm I am so grateful for Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Bishop Marc Andrus, and the myriad of faithful people, lay and ordained, who lead us by word and example in understanding that we are not just called, but commanded, to love one another, to love our neighbors as ourselves. Surely, that involves each of us committing to work for healthy air, healthy water, healthy environments and healthy opportunity for all of God’s children and the places where they live. If we believe our Baptismal covenant, we know that “With God’s help”, we can. Tonya Riley says: mike geibel says: June 4, 2017 at 8:17 pm Basta, enough, Richard. Sue Jones says: June 2, 2017 at 7:03 am AMEN June 2, 2017 at 10:01 am I totally agree, we can’t wait to see what happens. We KNOW that our emissions are damaging the global temps. It’s a “now or never”, not a “wait & see”. 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 Carolyn G. Valentine says: June 1, 2017 at 8:00 pm Although the EPA has not been dismantled but it has a secretary now that doesn’t believe in EPA , climate change or the environment. Also EPA has beed de funded, I know they haven’t shut it down but they are sure trying to make impossible to function.Another thing is I like to know what improving the environment the air-quality and the water quality has a downside anywhere. What’s the worst that could happen we live better and live longer and healthier. Rector Bath, NC Comments are closed. Tonya Riley says: Dianne Smith says: Rector Tampa, FL June 2, 2017 at 7:26 am Since you’re in Arizona, I’m sure you will have no problem helping your neighbors from the coastal areas when they are affected even more from stable climatologist predictions. Perhaps reflecting on the signs and symptoms of God reminding us of our responsibilities to this planet will turn out to be more than a “nothingburger” as you immaturely and arrogantly proclaimed. Nice work practicing what you preach, bishop. The Rev Dr Mark Barwick says: Tonya Riley says: June 1, 2017 at 10:08 pm Science is not a consensus at one time the science cummunity an church believed the earth was the center of the universe an the world was flat John Miller says: Roger Hamilton says: Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Belleville, IL June 2, 2017 at 11:19 am Biblical illiteracy in Episcopalians is a terrible thing.“The nations raged,but your wrath has come,and the time for judging the dead,for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints and all who fear your name, both small and great,and FOR DESTROYING THOSE WHO DESTROY THE EARTH.”—Revelation 11.18-19 Press Release Service June 2, 2017 at 1:37 am I think we should lower the temperature of some of our comments. Name calling is a sign of intolerance and disrespect. Scientists have in fact reported that the southern polar cap on Mars has receded due to “global warming” and we know there are no cars on Mars. However, the rise in temperature is now believed to be attributed to the less stable orbit of Mars. I am no scientist, but like the Secretary of Defense, I believe that global warming is real. This is despite the false threat of an impending ice age reported by scientists in the 1970’s, and the Climate-gate scandal that revealed some scientists were “cooking their data” to support the global warming theory. I’m just not sure the details of the Paris accord are fair or will work. The issue of how to address the problem is more complex and profound than simplistic “reduce carbon emissions by 26%” and for U.S. taxpayers to pay a wealthy country fine of $100 billion every year, and give billions to China and India. I also find it rather presumptuous that former President Obama would commit to it without vetting and approval by Congress–that is our democratic process.Some sources say the accord would result in loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs in the U.S., and that cost of gas will increase by 50 cents to a dollar per gallon. Some scientist admit that even if strictly adhered to, the measures will not stop global warming for the decades to come, if at all. In 2009, the TEC adopted the “Genesis Covenant,” an admirable and progressive promise to reduce the carbon footprint of all Church facilities by 50% by the next 10 years. Money was made available via “grants” to install solar and other eco-friendly measures. Members were asked to sign on to a similar personal commitment to reduce their personal carbon footprint by 50%. I have not seen ENS or the Leadership issue a report card on the success of the Genesis Covenant with the deadline only 2 years away. Me thinks the economic realities are daunting. But I do agree with Bishop Curry’s message that individually, we should continue to take action to address global warming. I was taught that Jesus told us it is better to lead by example. Richard Basta says: June 1, 2017 at 6:45 pm Yes, I agree and we know there are many more ignorant people who follow this state of mind! Dick Garber says: Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI June 2, 2017 at 11:16 am This time, look through the right end of the telescope. BP. Raymond Decelles Sawyer, ICAB says: Jerry Cohen says: Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Shreveport, LA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Bill Hoelzel says: June 1, 2017 at 8:01 pm Roger, I agree. Richard, You speak with clarity. Too many people think with their emotions in condescending attitudes as though those of us who disagree hate the planet. And Dick, God bless all of our children and grandchildren, even those whose children and grandchildren have been aborted as abortion is something that the Episcopal Church supports. Each day this cradle Episcopalian becomes more of an American Anglican. And Diane, “ignorant” has many definitions. Please use the word sparingly and with respect. Curate Diocese of Nebraska June 1, 2017 at 10:08 pm I like the simple truth expressed by Sandy Weis. I also feel that PB Curry was quite articulate in expressing the scriptural nature of taking care of this planet. It is Gods, every single Atom, every single process, and every single law. God “love the world so much he gave his only son.” And the son asked us to pray, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” We cannot avoid a responsibility as citizens of this world. Helen Bell says: Karin Green says: Advocacy Peace & Justice, June 1, 2017 at 6:29 pm I am pleased we are participating in Thy Kingdom Come prayer movement. It could not have come at a better time. There is the separation of church and state so I appreciate this statement from our Presiding Bishop. Statements are pouring in from around the US and the world from Governors /Mayors/Presidents/Kings/Queens and even me as just a peasant but follower of Jesus. I posted my personal remarks on my FaceBook page and still have my prayer beads in my hand.

Making decisions based on observable data in this regard might yield better decisions in the long term.”First, withdrawing from the community of nations and the diplomatic process is not any form of “leadership” at all.Second, the super-abundant and overwhelming “observable data” on the pace and effects of global climate change (= global climate destabilization) brought on by human industrial activity and the combustion of carbon fuels) tells us that we do NOT have time to sit around for 10-50 years to “wait to see” whether current and future actions to pull the global climate back across the “tipping point” might work. We must continue to pursue far more active policies NOW to implement a sustainable world economy, lest we as a species be responsible for destroying God’s amazing creation–and our civilization as well as our brothers and sisters along with it… June 1, 2017 at 7:10 pm Science is a product of human understanding of natural events. As such, in the tradition of the Anglican/Episcopalian relationships with the world, the presiding bishop’s statement fits well into an informed and well foundationed approach to humanity and all living creation. We only have history of society going back a few thousand years. We have history of the planet going back billions of years. Both those histories validate the presiding bishop.Our ethical understandings can be surmised far back. Our stated ethics are recent. Still, both compel us to realize that, with Anglican priest and poet, John Donne, and with Jesus, none of us , as individuals or communities or business people, exists independent of each other. Posted Jun 1, 2017 Sandy Weis says: Karin Green says: Submit an Event Listing June 1, 2017 at 8:18 pm Thank you, Bishop Curry. My environmentalist father was a scientist, working in chemistry and quantum mechanics. He was talking about climate change before it was being discussed in the popular media. And regardless of how much climate change is human-caused, it is always our respnsibility to care for this marvelous planet God gave us to live on rather than exploiting and destroying it.

June 1, 2017 at 9:45 pm I am saddened by anyone who supports President Donald John Trump, where his social justice decisions and climate change issues are concerned. THe wisdom expressed by my Anglican brother in the Catholic episcopate reflects my own. I pray that he and anyone else who puts job over environment is engaging in a deceptive choice. BP.

Valentine says: June 3, 2017 at 4:31 pm What about President Trump’s decision makes you thankful? Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Faith & Politics, Course Director Jerusalem, Israel June 1, 2017 at 6:32 pm In these sad days of divisive dialogue, I applaud Michael Curry in taking the high road in his comments regarding Mr. Trump’s stated position. No confrontation. No castigation. Just preaching the pure Scriptural truth. June 1, 2017 at 7:04 pm Saying that the EPA has not been disbanded ignores how much Trump is working hard to disband it. He proposes cuts of 30% to its budget and if enacted they will eviscerate the agency. Scott Pruitt, chief of the EPA, denies climate science and is a puppet of the fossil fuel industry as is Trump. To assert that Trump’s decision today “only changes our leadership role in this one area” ignores the overwhelming assault this administration is making on the public lands and environment in this country and now on the planet. June 2, 2017 at 2:26 am The Genesis Covenant was adopted by the TEC in 2009. ;http://www.episcopalchurch.org/files/genesis_convenant_final.pdfI suspect you are not the only one unaware that that in 2009 the TEC requested members and churches to voluntarily reduce their carbon footprint by 50% within the next 10 years — 2019. Not a good indicator of how successful the Paris Accord would be. June 1, 2017 at 9:18 pm It may be already to late to turn global warming around, but denieing it or ignoring it will not work. We can, with Gods help, make a difference . Featured Events June 2, 2017 at 10:00 am AMEN!!! June 3, 2017 at 6:12 pm Gary Mayer–Do you honestly believe it is still “true” that the earth is flat and that the sun revolves around the earth or do you know better than that? (“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I set aside childish ways.” I COR 13:11)We must act wisely and decisively based on the best information available to us. And the preponderance of truth directs us to move swiftly–while we still can–to reverse the damage we have caused by burning fossil fuels and destabilizing the earth’s climate. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Tags [Episcopal News Service] President Donald Trump announced June 1 that he would pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement, a 2015 pledge to limit climate change signed by 196 nations.The agreement includes a plan to decrease carbon emissions and limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius, and a commitment from wealthier nations to provide $100 billion in aid to developing countries. The agreement is the first-ever binding, international treaty in 20 years of United Nations climate talks.(Click here for an Episcopal Public Policy Network alert on advocating for environmental appropriations.)The presiding bishop’s statement follows.With the announcement by President Donald Trump of his decision to withdraw the commitment made by the United States to the Paris Climate Accord, I am reminded of the words of the old spiritual which speaks of God and God’s creation in these words, “He’s got the whole world in his hands.” The whole world belongs to God, as Psalm 24 teaches us. God’s eye is ever on even the tiny sparrow, as Jesus taught and the song says (Luke 12:6). And we human beings have been charged with being trustees, caretakers, stewards of God’s creation (Genesis 1:26-31).The United States has been a global leader in caring for God’s creation through efforts over the years on climate change. President Trump’s announcement changes the U.S.’s leadership role in the international sphere. Despite this announcement, many U.S. businesses, states, cities, regions, nongovernmental organizations and faith bodies like the Episcopal Church can continue to take bold action to address the climate crisis. The phrase, “We’re still in,” became a statement of commitment for many of us who regardless of this decision by our President are still committed to the principles of the Paris Agreement.Faith bodies like the Episcopal Church occupy a unique space in the worldwide climate movement. In the context of the United Nations, the UNFCCC and the Paris Agreement, we are an international body representing 17 countries in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia and the Pacific. We also are an admitted observer organization to the UNFCCC process, empowered to bring accredited observers to the UN climate change meetings. Furthermore, the Episcopal Church is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, the third-largest Christian tradition, and we remain committed to ensuring that Anglicans everywhere are empowered to undertake bold action on climate change mitigation and adaptation.We know that caring for God’s creation by engaging climate change is not only good for the environment, but also good for the health and welfare of our people. The U.S. is currently creating more clean jobs faster than job creation in nearly every other sector of the economy, and unprecedented acceleration in the clean energy sector is also evident in many other major economies.My prayer is that we in the Episcopal Church will, in this and all things, follow the way, the teachings and the Spirit of Jesus by cultivating a loving, liberating and life-giving relationship with God, all others in the human family, and with all of God’s good creation.In spite of hardships and setbacks, the work goes on. This is God’s world. And we are all his children. And, “He’s got the whole world in his hands.”The Most Rev. Michael B.

I am saddened and not at all impressed that the PB publishes his thoughts on “climate change” so quickly after President Trump’s announcement. Teach the Faith. Every day and in every opportunity. By word and deed, show love to God and neighbour. That’s more than a “full plate” for all clergy. Climate change will show itself in the future to be the “biggest nothingburger ever.” Too many clergy are fixated on it to the detriment of teaching the Faith to their people. And as the years go by, the church slowly shrinks. Pray. Teach. Exhort. Encourage and pray some more. “We are the hollow men/We are the stuffed men/Leaning together/Headpiece filled with straw.

June 3, 2017 at 6:26 pm Nancy West,I recommend this definition of “ignorant,” from the Merriam-Webster dictionary:Definition of ignorant1a : destitute of knowledge or education an ignorant society; also : lacking knowledge or comprehension of the thing specified parents ignorant of modern mathematicsb : resulting from or showing lack of knowledge or intelligence ignorant errors2: unaware, uninformedhttps://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ignorantThis dictionary definition does not seem to support leaders or commenters who remain ill-informed, willfully ignorant, or otherwise not aware of the truth. It would also seem to support acting in accord with the overwhelming preponderance of scientific evidence across multiple disciplines that:a) global climate change is real,b) our global climate is destabilizing faster than anticipated,c) global climate change is human-caused,d) climate change has greatly accelerated since the beginning of the Industrial Revolutione) specifically, humans have disrupted the intricate balance of our planet’s climate by burning fossil fuels and creating greenhouse gases, andf) that the planet is near, at, or past the “tipping point” at which the earth’s climate may become increasingly unstable and dangerous. Rector Pittsburgh, PA June 1, 2017 at 9:31 pm We are all responsible for taking care of our world. The Paris Accord makes this clear so there is nothing to negotiate.

I agree with you that our Church’s response to the President’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord need not disempwer us from “taking bold action on climate change mitigation and adaptation.” I would like to see a Church-wide programmatic initiative that encourages and offers concrete spiritual, liturgical and practical approaches through which our dioceses, congregations , educational and other entities may acknowledge, celebrate and exercise our stewardship of creation, and demonstrate our commitment to “staying in” with the Principles of the Parish Agreement.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWindowsRodecaAluminium WindowsWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorText description provided by the architects. The Woodside is a low-density luxury residential mountain villa development comprising of 37 villas built on a 12-acre site in the picturesque environs of Kasauli, India. Kasauli falls in an interesting topographic and climatic zone where one needs to deal with mountainous terrain and cool winters, while summers can get as warm as the plains. The site is a highly contoured piece of land with level differences of about 100 m within the site. The neighborhood is predominantly used for agriculture and vegetation, and hence the site exists within a vast green and mountainous landscape. The organizing principle for the development is formalized keeping in mind natural swales and ridges.Save this picture!Site PlanThe villas and the internal road networks are strategically placed in order to minimize the amount of cutting and filling to the natural terrain as well as to retain maximum existing vegetation. Morphogenesis designed each cottage in a two-wing format that is connected at a pin joint, which can swing open or close, depending on how and what the ground would allow one to engage with at that point.Save this picture!© Suryan DangThis leads to some level of uniformity even though all these houses are different from each other. The cottages are positioned on the slope in a manner that ensures unobstructed panoramic views of the scenic hills of the Shimla valley; the largest ones enjoy a view right up to the city of Chandigarh on a good day. This is achieved by maintaining a minimum height difference between the roof level of each cottage and the ground level of the preceding cottage uphill.Save this picture!© Suryan DangGenerous living spaces with apertures that maximize the panoramic views extend into lawns, plunge pool decks, and wide balconies. Various environmental strategies are adopted to secure water and energy conservation throughout the development. The water supply and replenishment system are designed to minimize wastage of water and to utilize rainwater harvesting systems, while process wastewater from the sewage treatment plant supports irrigation needs for all the landscaping.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!First Floor PlanThe 350- mm-thick outer walls of the cottages provide thermal mass that keeps the cottages cool in the summers and traps much-needed warmth in the winters, considerably reducing energy consumption. The site is well equipped with rainwater harvesting facilities that help to reduce water wastage. Rainwater harvesting pits are established at regular intervals within the site, which further helps in the storage of surface runoff. The collected water is then used for the purpose of irrigation downhill and the remaining water is channelized further downhill to be collected in a sump to be reused later.Save this picture!© Suryan DangThis project also aims at developing a community and hence, special features have been incorporated to pledge the exclusivity of the site. For example overhanging cliffs, and a glass Tea House on the summit referencing the British legacy of the area and the evening tea ritual. The clubhouse affords 360-degree views on all sides. An existing water body on the site is retained and the onsite vegetation is maintained as well in order to preserve the sanctity of the site. In addition, locally available materials like stone, timber, slate, and rubble are used for construction.Save this picture!© Suryan DangThe Morphogenesis approach to this design was to change very little in the land formation–to “touch the earth lightly,” quoting Glenn Murcutt. The unusual site and unique brief elicited a design response that is intrinsically rooted to the high specificity of the site’s topography, geography, and immediate context; it aspires to visually engage with the end user’s imagination by creating a unique identity amidst a serene landscape.Save this picture!© Suryan DangProject gallerySee allShow lessRevitalizing Theatrical Hutongscape / MINOR labSelected ProjectsThe Sun Shed of Chun Qin Yuan Ecological Farm Renovation / Mix ArchitectureSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh, IndiaLocation to be used only as a reference.
