Oil majors curb the FTSE 100 despite solid corporate news

first_img Show Comments ▼ BRITAIN’S top share index fell yesterday, hurt by Royal Dutch Shell as the oil major’s results were met with disappointment, while drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline rose after it decided to push ahead with a buyback programme.The FTSE 100 shed 16.73 points, or 0.3 per cent, to 5,983.34, after closing 0.7 per cent higher on Wednesday.The FTSE 250 also lost out, shedding 30.83 points, or 0.26 per cent, to close at 11,575.83. “People are waiting for a significant break and close above [the 6,000 level] for the market to push on,” said Yusuf Heusen, senior sales trader at IG Index.Heusen argued that major impediments to the index’s progress yesterday were Shell after its results and BP on uncertainty surrounding its planned Arctic exploration partnership with Rosneft, Russia’s state oil group.Share price declines from Royal Dutch Shell’s A and B shares and BP knocked a total of 24 points off the UK blue chip index.Shell’s A shares fell three per cent after the firm posted weak refining and downstream results, as an oil price fuelled rebound in its fourth-quarter profit fell short of expectations.BP, whose own results undershot forecasts earlier in the week, fell 2.1 per cent on the increasing concern surrounding its Russian deal, as peer BG Group, due to report next Tuesday, also slipped 1.9 per cent.GlaxoSmithKline, up 3.6 per cent, helped curb the FTSE 100’s decline.Britain’s biggest drugmaker said it would start buying back shares again in 2011, demonstrating confidence it has turned the corner following massive legal bills, as it posted quarterly results which were viewed as broadly in-line.BT Group also provided support, adding 3.6 per cent, after the telecoms provider reported third-quarter results which Prime Markets described as “excellent”.“[We] view the post Christmas dip as a window of opportunity to pick up the shares before they once again begin their seemingly inevitable upward trajectory for 2011,” it said in a note.Aggreko added 4.9 per cent, the top FTSE 100 riser, after Bank of America Merrill Lynch upgraded its rating for the temporary power supplier to “buy” from “neutral” citing valuation grounds.Intercontinental Hotels was also among the top risers, up 2.9 per cent, while most of the travel and leisure sector fell. Analysts said concerns that the uprising in Egypt could spread across the region also weighed on investor sentiment.“For as long as [the situation in Egypt] continues, the markets will be a little bit nervous,” Angus Campbell, head of sales at Capital Spreads, said.“Western economies are very reliant on their major export, which is oil of course, but also there are a number of important business relationships we have with that part of the world.” Better-than-expected readings of US economic growth were not enough to dislodge fears about Egypt, where gunmen fired on anti-government protesters in Cairo.Data released yesterday showed that the US services sector grew in January at its fastest pace since August 2005, and initial claims in the latest week for state unemployment benefits fell more than had been expected.

Q&A: Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris says, ‘people have got to…

first_img June 12, 2017 at 10:36 pm Happy Birthday, Bishop Barbara. You look awesome. I remember when you came to Epiphany and played the piano while we sang music from Let Every Voice–you were amazing and I will always remember that. Press Release Service Now-retired Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris, left, helped ordain and consecrate the Rt. Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows on April 29 in Indianapolis when the latter became the first black female diocesan bishop in the Episcopal Church. Harris became the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion in 1989. Photo: Miguel Hampton/Diocese of Indianapolis[Episcopal News Service] Now-retired Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris’ historic ordained ministry has always included advocacy for the full inclusion of all people in the life of the Episcopal Church.Harris began making history with that advocacy as a lay woman on July 29, 1974. She lifted high the cross as crucifer during a service at Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when 11 women deacons and four bishops broke the then-existing prohibition against the ordination of women to the priesthood of the Episcopal and Anglican Churches. (Women had been allowed to be deacons in the church since 1889. They were known as deaconesses until 1970.)At General Convention in 1976, the Episcopal Church resolved the rebellion that began with the Philadelphia 11 and agreed to allow women to become priests and bishops.Harris was ordained a deacon in 1979 and in October 1980, became a priest.The former public relations executive made her largest mark on church history in 1989 when she became the first female bishop in the Anglican Communion. Her election and subsequent ordination and consecration prompted rejoicing but also brought obscenities, death threats and the departure of some Episcopalians from the Church.In April, 28 years and 266 Episcopal Church bishops later, Harris helped ordain and consecrate the Rt. Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows as the first black female bishop diocesan in the Episcopal Church.Now as the Church considers how to encourage a more diverse House of Bishops, Harris spoke to Episcopal News Service about why the house is still mostly male and white.You were there April 29 when Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows made history by becoming the Episcopal Church’s first black female diocesan bishop. What did that mean to you?I thought it represented a milestone in the Church, particularly for black women. One of the things that impressed me was the strong presence of black women clergy from around the country who were there to support and celebrate on that occasion. I was very moved by the whole day, that whole weekend.Bishop Barbara HarrisAge: 87 (on June 12, 2017)Born: Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaEducation: Attended Villanova University and the Urban Theology Unit in Sheffield, England, and also graduated from the Pennsylvania Foundation for Pastoral Counseling. Work and activism: Harris worked in public relations before ordination and was active in the civil rights movement, including the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. From 1980-84, she was priest-in-charge at St. Augustine of Hippo Church, Morristown, Pennsylvania. She was also a prison chaplain. In 1984, she became executive director of Episcopal Church Publishing Co., publisher of The Witness, which advocated peace and justice ministries in the Church. She was an associate at Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia, which sponsored her for ordination, from 1984 until 1988 when she was appointed interim-in-charge.During your nearly 38 years of ordained ministry, what sort of changes have you seen in Episcopalians’ attitudes toward women and people of color in church leadership positions?Certainly, there has been some change with the election and consecration of several women, including just three black women, as bishops. I have regretted that more women have not been elected as bishops, but I think some of that is that some women are reluctant to offer themselves in the process of election.Why do you think that is?I think there is still some resistance to women in the episcopate. I do not think that the Church is as open as people might think it is.Who ought to be responsible for changing those attitudes?I think it lies with all of us in the Church to be more open to women and to gay and lesbian people, to people of color. I don’t think this Church is as open sexually and racially as people tend to think it is.What should dioceses consider when searching for and nominating candidates for bishop?When they begin the search process and form a search committee, and develop their profiles and criteria for the office, they ought to expand their thinking about the role and what kind of person with what kind of experience should be considered. Usually a search committee has a consultant, and I think the people who serve as consultants to search committees ought to encourage a broadening of perspective on the profile.How should the laity and clergy who elect bishops discern their choice?They don’t really discern their choice until the walkabouts occur. They need to be exposed a broad spectrum of candidates or nominees.What advice do you have for women and people of color about discerning a call to the episcopacy?I think people need to examine themselves very carefully and be open to a call to a broader dimension of ministry as represented by the episcopacy. I think a lot of women and people of color are reluctant to do that. Historical rejection has a large part to play in that. People conclude: “Why should I put myself through that process that isn’t going to lead to anything?” When I was asked to allow my name to go into the process here in Massachusetts, I said to myself, well, nothing will come of this but people ought to at least have the opportunity to consider it. Particularly as I did the walkabouts, which we then called “the dog-and-pony show,” I said to myself, I am never going to see these people again in life so I might as well say exactly what is on my mind. I did, and look what it got me. People said to me after the election: “You were the nominee who gave us honest answers and did not tell us what you thought we wanted to hear.”Do people of color and women and LGBT folks get nominated as tokens so that dioceses can check off a box labeled “diversity”?I think that happens a lot. [That makes a decision to participate in a particular election harder.] People don’t want to allow their names to go forward in a process because they may be asked to allow their name to go forward someplace else, and if you participate in too many episcopal elections without being elected, then you become kind of soiled goods. People have a tendency to say: “Oh, well, she’s been in three episcopal elections and didn’t make it.” I think people need to look very carefully at the diocese in which they may be asked to let their name be considered, and if it looks totally hopeless, then, given the makeup of the diocese and their operation — not just their history but their current focus — people need to consider that very carefully. Search committees also have to be aware of the climate of their dioceses.Now-retired Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris, lower right, stands next to Archbishop Desmond Tutu in a window in the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, that honors black saints and black bishops past and present. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceYou did not have a quiet episcopacy, at least at the start when you became a new focal point of the debate about women’s ordination, especially as bishops. If you had the choice to go back, and knowing what you know now, would you still do it?I think I might have on the same basis that I made the decision back then that they ought to at least have the opportunity to consider it, whether it goes anyplace or not. I think I would make the same decision. I think it was the right decision despite some of the ugliness associated with the outcome. All in all, it’s been a good ministry for me. I’m editing the manuscript for a book I am doing. I open each chapter with a verse either from a hymn or spiritual. The last chapter will open with a gospel hymn: “I don’t feel no ways tired. I’ve come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me the road would be easy, but I don’t believe he brought me this far to leave me.” That’s the way I would sum up my ministry.Is there anything else about this subject of diversity in the House of Bishops that you would like to say?I think more women and more people of color, not just African-Americans, but more people of color ought to have the courage to make it known that they are open to being considered. Now I know that’s asking a lot, but people have got to live boldly. That’s what ministry in any capacity, lay or ordained, is all about.A more detailed biography of Harris is here.– The Rev.

Cedric Heymans and Colin Slade outstanding trysavers

first_imgSunday Aug 15, 2010 Cedric Heymans and Colin Slade outstanding trysavers Amongst the feast of tries and hard hitting action this weekend, there were two stand out try saving tackles that were much requested following games in both the Top 14 and the ITM Cup. Here’s a double feature as we’ve got both for you.The first clip is a short one of French international winger Cedric Heymans chasing back to make a superb tackle against newly promoted Agen in Toulouse’s opening game of the Top 14 season, a game in which they scored six tries and came out 44-24 winners.Brice Dulin of Agen dashed off down the wing and looked certain to score for his side when Heymans some how caught him and pulled off a miracle tackle as he knocked the ball from his grasp, preventing the try in what was a brilliant piece of play.A few thousand miles away in New Zealand Colin Slade came up with a similar feat after North Harbour’s Ben Botica had broken away from his own 22, stepped the cover, and streaked down field for what was going to be one of the solo efforts of the season.Slade, who seems to get better every time he turns out for his Canterbury side, sprinted back and made a perfectly timed tackle to knock the Harbour flyhalf into touch.Both of them were outstanding efforts, so to avoid a double post, they’ve been included here with the two seperate videos. Great stuff from the Top 14 opening weekend, and more quality in the ITM Cup. If you spotted anything else you think should be featured on RD, get in touch.

Their design captivates through specific, spatial dramaturgy. On 350 square meters and two storeys, the classic idea of a “loft” is noticeable, yet is being reinterpreted in many regards. „I never play with the façade, I do not live there“, said Adolf Loos. As Loos has concerned himself with definitions of space, smartvoll does the same, more than 100 years later. A special focus lies on the exhaustion of materials and of what is technologically possible. Architecture unfolds on the inside. The room- and material-concept develops the encountered and retains the established. Smoothed and waxed concrete is one of the decisive materials for shaping the interior. Save this picture!© Tobias Colz“We wanted to revitalise the space’s original charm. Magnanimity and a spatial experience of both storeys were priorities. In all dimensions.”The space is not only being preserved, but it is being enriched by completely new qualities. In order to ensure consistent brightness everywhere, smartvoll decided to forgo typical galleries and to basically leave the upper ribbon window free. Bedroom, bathroom and guestroom are distributed throughout the space, as separate bodies. The epicenter of the room is the kitchen – a seven-meter-long block. The whole composition is rounded off by a concrete sculpture, or stair sculpture, which not only opens up all rooms, but also appears to be carrying them. Save this picture!Plans“Through the stair sculpture, which spans across the rooms, you do not see the way between the levels as a vertical, functional connection, but rather as an electric spatial experience.”Save this picture!© Tobias ColzIncidentally, the sculpture divides the room, creates a roof over the kitchen, recesses and elevations and therefore allows you to stay in motion – and to see everything from everywhere. The same applies to the glass shower, which protrudes from the fully glazed bathing block at a height of five meters. James-Bond décor like this can be found all over. The absolute highlight, albeit being a bit hidden, is the wellness area. Fireplace included. Save this picture!© Tobias ColzThe stairs are an architecture within the architecture. Concreted in-house, the engineering is being exhausted in all respects. A tender object with minimal dimensions, but tremendous spatial impact. Something that does not allow for competition: Besides the concrete, only subtle, semi-transparent materials are being used, such as Profilit, to separate the guest area, curtains for the bedroom or integrated furniture, like a hanging steel shelf. Every other piece of furniture seems to be integrated into the construction. An unalterable picture, which celebrates only free space.Save this picture!© Tobias Colz“Connections of space and view are being held intact marvelously and the room is not being cut into different bodies, but can be experienced perfectly with its impressive height of eight meters.”Save this picture!© Tobias ColzSave this picture!© Tobias ColzAt the lower level, the room is connected to two balconies. However, even this façade aligns itself with the carriers of the concrete sculpture in the slant; the balconies look like additional alcoves of the overall concept. They feature a contemplative zen-garden, including a grassy knoll, a tree jasmine and a classic relax-terrace.Save this picture!© Tobias ColzProject gallerySee allShow lessParking Garage Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc / de Jong Gortemaker Algra + Modul…Selected ProjectsGrid / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Salzburg, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Irish parliamentarian calls for openness on street collection costs

first_imgIrish parliamentarian calls for openness on street collection costs About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Tagged with: face-to-face Ireland Law / policy Howard Lake | 21 February 2014 | News The public should not have to ‘drag out’ of charity street direct debit collectors what they are paid, a TD has told the Irish Dáil.Patrick O’Donovan asked that charities in receipt of state funding in particular should be required to explain their costs from the outset. He said that, on almost any urban street in Ireland, you can encounter a face-to-face fundraiser or representative of an organisation funded by Irish Aid with a clipboard and “you have to drag out of them what percentage of the money winds up sinking the bore hole in Uganda”.He called on Minister of State Joe Costello to encourage agencies to “level with” the people they stop on the street about “the percentage the collector gets, the percentage the NGO gets for administration and the percentage the person in the developing country benefits from”.According to the Irish Times, Mr O’Donovan raised the issue during questions on foreign affairs. He wanted to receive Government assurances that the salaries paid to senior executives in organisations working overseas and funded by Irish Aid were not ‘topped up’.His comments follow the revelation that Angela Kerins, chief executive of Rehab, which operates services for people in disability in Ireland, the UK and Poland, has a total remuneration package of €272,000.Next week the Dail Public Accounts Committee will hold further hearings on charity salaries.center_img  28 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Photo: transparent euro sign by Kostsov on AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
