Zero per cent tax rate threatened as civil unrest spreads to Jordan

first_img Share AS civil unrest spread to Jordan yesterday, markets reacted to the news that a change of government could affect the country’s zero per cent export tax – and the companies that rely on it. Early yesterday Jordan’s King Abdullah dismissed his government and announced his intention to bring about “genuine political reform”. Jordan-based Hikma Pharmaceuticals, which has close links to the incumbent government and makes significant exports to the US and across the Middle East, has already been highlighted as a potentional loser in the shake-up. Peel Hunt downgraded the company to to “sell” and lowered its target price to 720p, with shares in the group having already fallen 4.7 per cent the previous day.

How to prepare for another stock market crash

first_img Image source: Getty Images Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Some analysts are sceptical the market can recover any time soon from the March stock market crash. Others are alarmed by the rise in the number of cases in the US. There’s also the threat of a new virus emerging from China. It’s enough to make anyone want to just stay in bed under the duvet all day watching Netflix.Yet businesses and stock markets frequently deal with big issues. Admittedly not a global pandemic – at least not for about a century – but all manner of other unforeseen (but also in some ways predictable) events such as the dot com bubble bursting, 9/11, and the recession following the credit crunch over a decade ago.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…All these events created a panic very similar to the one we saw in March. Although markets haven’t fully recovered so far we’re on track for a V-shaped recovery. However, this progress could be reversed swiftly. With that in mind, here is what I’d do to protect my portfolio.Using diversification to beat another stock market crashAlthough I’m certainly not a fan of investing directly in gold, getting access to it via an investment trust investing in gold miners may be a useful hedge. The Scottish Investment Trust moved earlier this year to make several miners its biggest holdings. The share price has done relatively well this year.Speaking more broadly about investment trusts, I think they are a good way to access a wide range of holdings. When markets fall, this diversification is valuable. Also, at a time when dividends are being cut left, right, and centre, even by the big FTSE 100 companies, it’s good to know investment trusts can keep rewarding shareholders. The trusts can keep reserves, so many have the cash to keep paying dividends to shareholders in this tricky market.Focus on total returnsGiven income is increasingly hard to come by, I’d focus on total returns. This is an approach that has been recently endorsed by successful fund manager Terry Smith. With dividends so precarious, it seems more sensible to focus on shares that can grow in any environment. These will be companies that have strong competitive advantages or monopolies, or enjoy strong pricing power and margins.In my view companies that have some of these qualities are likely to be winners in this environment, while also being prime candidates as profitable long-term investments.Keep some cash spareLastly, if you are of the view that it’s sensible to be ready for the possibility of another market crash then it’s also prudent to keep some cash on hand. If stock markets crash it’s usually sharply and for a limited time. You want to buy shares at the bottom and not panic sell. The cash will be useful for buying up shares you think will prosper at a much cheaper price. Buying Intermediate Capital Group in late March showed me just how rewarding this type of investing can be.All of this I believe will help you to best get through any future stock market crash.  See all posts by Andy Ross Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

‘Las personas han logrado vivir audazmente’, dice la obispa sufragánea…

Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows el 29 de abril en Indianápolis, cuando esta última se convirtió en la primera obispa diocesana negra en la Iglesia Episcopal. Harris fue la primera obispa de la Comunión Anglicana en 1989. Foto de Miguel Hampton/Diócesis de Indianápolis.[Episcopal News Service] El histórico ministerio ordenado de la ya jubilada obispa sufragánea de Massachusetts siempre ha incluido la defensa por la plena inclusión de todas las personas en la vida de la Iglesia Episcopal.Harris comenzó a hacer historia con esa defensa siendo aún laica, el 29 de julio de 1974, como crucífera en el oficio de la iglesia del Defensor [Church of the Advocate] en Filadelfia, Pensilvania, cuando 11 mujeres diáconas y cuatro obispos quebrantaron la prohibición existente contra la ordenación de mujeres al presbiterado de las iglesias Episcopal y Anglicana (A las mujeres se les había permitido ser diáconas en la Iglesia desde 1889. Se les conoció como diaconisas hasta 1970).En la Convención General de 1976, la Iglesia Episcopal resolvió la rebelión que comenzó con las once de Filadelfia y convino en permitir que las mujeres llegaran a ser presbíteras y obispas.A Harris la ordenaron diácona en 1979 y en octubre de 1980 se convirtió en presbítera.La ex ejecutiva de relaciones públicas dejó su marca más importante en la historia de la Iglesia en 1989 cuando se convirtió en la primera obispa de la Comunión Anglicana. Su elección y subsecuente ordenación y consagración suscitaron regocijo, pero también provocaron obscenidades, amenazas de muerte y la partida de algunos episcopales de la Iglesia.En abril, después de 28 años y 266 obispos más de la Iglesia Episcopal, Harris ayudó a ordenar y consagrar a la Rvdma. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows como la primera obispa diocesana negra de la Iglesia Episcopal.Ahora, mientras la Iglesia contempla como fomentar una Cámara de Obispos más diversa, Harris habló con Episcopal News Service acerca de por qué la Cámara sigue siendo mayoritariamente masculina y blanca.Usted estaba allí el 29 de abril cuando Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows hizo historia al convertirse en la primera obispa diocesana negra de la Iglesia Episcopal. ¿Qué significó eso para usted?Pensé que representaba un hito en la Iglesia, particularmente para las mujeres negras. Una de las cosas que me impresionó fue la marcada presencia de clérigas negras de todo el país que estaban allí para apoyar y celebrar en esa ocasión. Me sentí muy conmovida por toda la jornada, por ese íntegro fin de semana.Obispa Barbara Harris Edad: 87 (cumplidos el 2 de junio de 2017) Nacida en: Filadelfia, Pensilvania Escolaridad: Asistió a la Universidad de Villanova y a la Unidad de Teología Urbana en Sheffield, Inglaterra, y también se graduó de la Fundación de Pensilvania para el Consejo Pastoral. Trabajo y activismo: Harris trabajó en relaciones públicas antes de su ordenación y fue activa en el movimiento de los derechos civiles, incluida la marcha de Selma a Montgomery, Alabama. De 1980 a 1984, fue sacerdote a cargo de la iglesia de San Agustín de Hipona  [St. Augustine of Hippo] en Morristown, Pensilvania. Fue también capellana de prisión. En 1984, se convirtió en directora ejecutiva de Episcopal Church Publishing Co., editora de The Witness,         publicación] que abogaba por los ministerios de paz y justicia en la Iglesia. Fue asociada en la iglesia del Defensor  [Church of the Advocate] en Filadelfia, la cual la auspició para la ordenación, de 1984 a 1988, cuando fue nombrada interina a cargo.Durante sus casi 38 años en el ministerio ordenado, ¿qué tipo de cambios ha visto en las actitudes de los episcopales hacia las mujeres y las personas de color en puestos de liderazgo en la Iglesia?Ciertamente, ha habido algunos cambios con la elección y consagración de varias mujeres, entre ellas tres mujeres negras, como obispas. He lamentado que más mujeres no hayan sido electas obispas, pero creo que algo de eso se debe a que algunas mujeres están renuentes a someterse al proceso de elección.¿Por qué cree eso?Creo que hay alguna resistencia a las mujeres en el episcopado. No creo que la Iglesia esté tan abierta como la gente podría creer que lo está.¿Quién debe ser responsable de cambiar esas actitudes?Creo que compete a todos nosotros en la Iglesia el estar más abiertos a las mujeres y a los homosexuales y a las personas de color. No creo que esta Iglesia sea tan abierta sexual y racialmente como la gente tiende a pensar.¿Qué deberían tener en cuenta las diócesis cuando buscan y nominan candidatos a obispos?Cuando comienzan el proceso de búsqueda y crean un comité de búsqueda y elaboran sus perfiles y sus criterios para el cargo, deberían expandir sus ideas respecto al papel [a desempeñar] y qué clase de persona con qué tipo de experiencia debería tomarse en consideración. Usualmente, un comité de búsqueda cuenta con un consultor, y creo yo que la gente que sirve de asesores a los comités de búsqueda debe estimular una ampliación de perspectiva en el perfil.¿Cómo debería el laicado y el clero que eligen a los obispos discernir su elección?Ellos realmente no disciernen su elección hasta que tiene lugar todo el proceso. Deben verse expuestos a un amplio espectro de candidatos o nominados.¿Qué consejo les daría a las mujeres y a las personas de color respecto a percibir un llamado al episcopado?Creo que las personas deben examinarse con mucho cuidado y estar abiertos a un llamado a una dimensión más amplia del ministerio como la que representa el episcopado. Creo que hay muchísimas mujeres y personas de color que están renuentes a hacer eso. El rechazo histórico tiene un gran papel que desempeñar en eso. Las personas llegan a esta conclusión: ¿por qué debo pasar por ese proceso que no va a conducirme a ninguna parte?” Cuando a mí me pidieron que autorizara incluir mi nombre en el proceso aquí en Massachusetts, me dije a mí misma, nada saldrá de esto, pero la gente al menos debe tener la oportunidad de considerarlo. En particular, mientras participaba en el proceso, que entonces llamábamos “el circo”, me dije, nunca más en mi vida voy a ver a esta gente, de manera que podría decir exactamente lo que tengo en mente. Lo hice y mira lo que me ocurrió. La gente me dijo después de la elección: “usted fue la nominada que nos dio respuestas sinceras y no nos dijo lo que pensaba que queríamos oír”.A las personas de color y las mujeres y los LGBT ¿los nominan como para llenar las apariencias de manera que las diócesis puedan hacer una marca en la casilla de “diversidad”?Creo que esto pasa muchísimo. [Eso hace más difícil tomar una decisión de participar en una elección en particular]. La gente no quiere que su nombre avance en un proceso porque pueden pedirles que permitan presentar sus nombres en algún otro lugar, y si participas en demasiadas elecciones episcopales sin resultar electa, te conviertes en una especie de trapo sucio. La gente tiene una tendencia a decir: “Bueno, ella ha estado en tres elecciones episcopales y no lo ha conseguido”. Creo que la gente debe mirar con mucho cuidado la diócesis en la que pueden pedirle que someta su nombre a consideración, y si parece totalmente imposible, dada la composición de la diócesis y su funcionamiento —no sólo su historia, sino su orientación actual—debe considerar eso muy cuidadosamente. Los comités de búsqueda también tienen que estar conscientes del clima de sus diócesis.La ahora jubilada obispa sufragánea de Massachusetts Barbara Harris, abajo a la derecha, de pie junto al arzobispo Desmond Tutu en una vidriera de la iglesia episcopal africana de Santo Tomás en Filadelfia, Pensilvania, que rinde tributo a santos y obispos negros pasados y presentes. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Usted no tuvo un episcopado apacible, al menos al comienzo, cuando se convirtió en el punto focal del debate sobre la ordenación de las mujeres, especialmente como obispos. Si tuviera la opción de volver atrás, y sabiendo lo que ahora sabe, ¿aún lo haría?Creo que podría partir de las mismas bases por las que tomé la decisión entonces, de que debían tener la oportunidad de tomarme en consideración, llevara eso a alguna parte o no. Creo que tomaría la misma decisión. Creo que fue la decisión correcta, a pesar de algunos cosas feas asociadas con el comienzo.  Resumiendo, ha sido un buen ministerio para mí. Estoy revisando el manuscrito de un libro que estoy haciendo. Abro cada capítulo con un verso, bien de un himno o de un cántico espiritual. El último capítulo abrirá con un himno góspel : “No me siento cansada en modo alguno. He llegado muy lejos de donde comencé. Nadie me dijo que el camino sería fácil, pero no creo que él me trajo hasta aquí para abandonarme”. Esa es la manera en que yo resumiría mi ministerio.¿Hay alguna otra cosa acerca de este tema de la diversidad en la Cámara de Obispos que le gustaría decir?Creo que más mujeres y más personas de color, no sólo afroamericanos, sino más personas de color, deben tener el valor de hacer saber que están dispuestas a que se les consideré [para el episcopado]. Ahora bien, sé que eso es pedir muchísimo, pero la gente ha logrado vivir audazmente. En eso consiste el ministerio en cualquier calidad, ya sea laico u ordenado.Una biografía más detallada de Harris se encuentra aquí.– La Rda Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora sénior y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Back ground. Sungin 1-dong is an old district situated next to a brand new, high-rise apartment complex. As a result, this creates enormous contrast between the residential environment and the landscape by the apartment wall forming a border line. Residents of the apartments live a comfortable life fenced off from the surrounding neighborhood. The apartments contain all the facilities and services, or social infrastructure, that they need to live their lives.Save this picture!© Jinbo ChoiSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jinbo ChoiFor the people who live on the other side of the fence, however, things are quite different. These people cannot afford the same social infrastructure. In fact, all the facilities and services that come bundled together in a private apartment, such as a senior citizen center, a library and a community space, are forms of social infrastructure that should be provided by the public sector.Save this picture!© Jinbo ChoiBut in Korea, where the private sector has led the supply of apartment-complex housing units, even social infrastructure has been commercialized. As a result, citizens have access to the level of social infrastructure that fits their income level. This is why the social infrastructure of Sungin 1-dong’s residents is poor. Sungin 1-dong has a relatively high percentage of native residents and the average age of residents is also high. In other words, there is little influx of young people in the area. This is why the atmosphere in the neighborhood seems to be somewhat stagnant. A small intervention, Sungin Space. Sungin Space was created on Dongmasan-gil, Sungin 1-dong, to revitalize the area and provide some balance with the nearby apartment complex. It is mainly divided into two areas.Save this picture!© Jinbo ChoiSave this picture!Section 01Save this picture!© Jinbo ChoiThe first floor is a shared space not only for residents of the village, but also for people living in other areas, and for those residing on upper floors of the share-house. It is used for various kinds of purpose such as small group gathering, exhibitions, and pop-up store. The Second to fifth floors are share -house for young people with the hope of revitalizing the village. New prototype. Shared housing is a new way of life that has appeared for economic reasons. A new way of life inevitably demands the emergence of a new residential style.Save this picture!© Jinbo ChoiHowever, this new way of life has been mostly contained in existing residential spaces such as apartments and multi-family homes. In the era of single-person households, shared housing should be considered a sustainable communal housing format. Shared housing extends the shared area from external (city) to the internal (house). In other words, the relationship between the house and the public square has been substituted with the relationship between the ‘room’ and the ‘living room’. The rooms in a share house should be as private as possible.Save this picture!© Jinbo ChoiResidents must have their own personal shelter (house), so they can be easy to mingle in the square. This is why the mass was split and the rooms were built like independent spaces, even though the house is small. As a result, each room has individual ventilation and the scenery and natural lighting are also doubled. On the other hand, the shared space on the first floor transparently connected the divided masses. Not only the front door facing the street, but also the folding doors in the small courtyard with bamboo are all transparent and openable, providing an expandable space and a lively view into the street.Save this picture!© Jinbo ChoiProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries for Cambodian Architects: Social Enterprise and Cultural HubBuilt Projects & MasterplansBeijing CR Land Galleria Shopping Center – Instreet Renovation / KokaistudiosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Seoul, South KoreaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Trump challenged in every state

first_imgAlmost everywhere presidential candidate Donald Trump goes in recent days, he has had to contend with protesters challenging his racist rhetoric.Police kept about 50 anti-Trump protesters a half-mile from the stadium where Trump spoke in Madison, Ala., on Feb. 28. But the mostly Latino/a group lined the road leading to the event so that Trump supporters had to see their placards and hear their protest songs in Spanish and English. Inside, activists chanted “Black lives matter!” and raised clenched fists as they were carried out by security forces (see accompanying article). This followed Trump’s refusal to repudiate an endorsement by longtime Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. His racist response was, “All lives matter!”The next day, dozens of university students and Black Lives Matter protesters linked arms and interrupted Trump numerous times in Radford, Va. Trump yelled to one protester, “Are you from Mexico?”That evening, more than 30 mostly Black students, standing quietly at the top of bleachers, were ejected from a Trump rally at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Ga., some 30 seconds after the rally started. According to 11 of the students, who posted videos on YouTube, they were not at the rally to disrupt but to educate themselves about Trump. They wore black as a sign of unity. The university was whites-only until 1963.The Trump crowd cheered when one of the students, responding to a verbal attack by a white Trump supporter, was handcuffed. Similarly, Shiya Nwanguma, a young African-American student at the University of Louisville, was repeatedly shoved and called racist and misogynous names while protesting at a Trump rally in Louisville, Ky., on March 1.The morning after a powerful demonstration of several hundred people outside the GOP debate in Detroit on March 3, Donald Trump came to Macomb Community College in Warren, Mich., to hold one of his infamous rallies. A very impromptu demonstration was organized and a small group of activists from Detroit joined some students from the college to take a stand against Trump and the neofascist elements he has refused to disavow. Activists demanded an end to deportations, war and the scapegoating of refugees. Several people went inside to disrupt the rally on their own, and a few of them joined the demonstration after they were ejected. Though numbers were small and the specter of Trump providing a cover for fascist thugs hung in the air, the protest was spirited and brave.Protesters took over the Trump rally in New Orleans for nearly eight minutes on March 4. Coordinated groups, including Black Lives Matter and other individuals, staged a constant stream of interruption and dropped to the ground as security forces tried to evacuate them. Trump derided the protesters as “stupid people.”Trump was interrupted dozens of times by protesters who stood at the entrance of his rally at the University of Central Florida in Orlando on March 5. When security forces pushed and shoved a protester, Trump responded, “He’s lucky it’s not 10 years ago.” (Orlando Sentinel, March 5) Trump has complained that in “the old days” police didn’t fear for their jobs when they roughed people up. In Las Vegas, he said, “[In the past] they’d be carried out on a stretcher.” (Washington Post, Feb. 23)At the same time, a group of Muslims marched toward the rally protesting Trump’s call for banning Muslim immigration. Bassem Chaaban said, “We … express our discontent with the message Trump has sent about not only Muslims but minorities, women and veterans.” (Orlando Sentinel, March 5) Dozens of UCF students carried signs in protest. Student Amanda Ortman said: “He wants to make America great again, but what does he want to make great again? Like 1960s great?

RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Reporters Without Borders is outraged that threats have forced freelance journalist Rogelio Prado Rodríguez to flee Tolima, the central department where he lives and works. The latest threat, on 7 February, took the form of a notice announcing his own death. Prado works for two radio stations, Radio Tropical and Cadena Radial Super, and the local daily Tolima Hoy. For the past two years, he been covering local government fraud allegedly involving the former mayor of the town of Melgar.“Three Colombian journalists have been forced to flee since the start of the year, two of them in the department of Tolima in the space of a week,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is true that Tolima is a war zone, but the threats that finally convinced Prado to leave seem to be linked to his reporting on local corruption. This is why, like Prado, we hope that the police and judicial authorities will investigate the recent probes into misconduct in the Melgar town hall, and that he gets protection.”Prado decided to leave after receiving four notices at his home on 7 February, each announcing a funeral mass that was supposedly being organised for him by his family, the three news media he works for, the Tolima departmental authorities and the Melgar municipal authorities.“The situation started to worsen in October, during the municipal election campaign, when the daily El Nuevo Día started to report what I have already been saying on the radio,” he told Reporters Without Borders. Since then, Prado has been constantly receiving threatening messages on his mobile phone.In 2006, Prado began covering a judicial investigation into alleged irregularities in contracts issued by José Alejandro Martínez Sánchez (now Tolima’s minister of infrastructure) when he was mayor of Melgar. The attempts to intimidate Prado were stepped up in May 2007, when a package of spoiled meat was left outside his home. Soon afterwards, a stone was thrown through one of the windows of its home. Attached to it was a message telling him to shut up.Prado began his career as a journalist working for Radio Armero in the town of Armero, where he was born. As well as reporting for Tolima Hoy, he has had a contract with Cadena Radial Super for the past 10 years and he hosts a morning news and talk show on Radio Tropical. In 2006 and 2007, he presented the show “El Bunker” on the army radio station.The father of five children, Prado said that, aside from his personal situation, he hoped that the judicial authorities shed light on the use of public funds by the Melgar town hall during the past five years.last_img read more
