Enter Your Email Address Harvey Jones | Wednesday, 11th March, 2020 | More on: PRU It’s nice to see a company’s stock rising for a change, if only for sheer novelty value amid the current market rout. It’s particularly good to see the Prudential (LSE: PRU) share price up. And especially given that I’ve been a long-time advocate of this globally diversified FTSE 100 insurer.Savers reeling from the Bank of England’s decision to slash interest rates today should take particular close attention. Lower rates are a massive blow for anybody looking to take out a Cash ISA with this year’s £20,000 allowance. But Prudential’s dividend pays 18 times the new, lower base rate of just 0.25%.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…While Prudential has US exposure through its Jackson arm, most investors have been buying it as a play on emerging markets and China. The group has been rapidly expanding its operations to take advantage of the emerging middle-classes. These people need to buy their own pension, health and insurance products, rather than relying on the state.Profits up 20%This morning, Prudential posted a forecast-beating 20% rise in group adjusted operating profit from continuing operations. It stood at a whopping $5.3bn.Group CEO Mike Wells hailed “another positive performance during 2019, despite significant macroeconomic and geopolitical volatility.” He says this leaves the £39bn group positioned for future growth.In Asia, its fast-growing franchise delivered double-digit growth in new business profit across eight markets. But coronavirus has slowed economic activity and dampened sales momentum in Hong Kong and China “with a consequential effect on new business profit.” However, the group’s broad geographic spread and the strength of its recurring premium business model “lends considerable resilience” to its earnings. Hence today’s upbeat market response.Action on JacksonThe big news today was a plan to launch a minority IPO for the US annuity business Jackson. This is to attract third-party funding. And it will give it the capital strength to become a separately-listed business. This follows pressure from activist investor Third Point. It comes after the £5.7bn separation from fund management arm M&G in October.There’s no timescale for the IPO as yet, valued at between $6bn and $10bn, which seems wise given current market concerns. Prudential will retain its London HQ, despite not doing any business in the UK, saying it offers a huge pool of finance professionals.My aim is PruPrudential stock rose more than 3% shortly after the results were announced, but fell by a similar amount in the afternoon as the wider FTSE 100 recovery rally ran out of steam.Savers looking for a higher return will be impressed by the Pru’s progressive dividend policy. The board announced a second interim ordinary dividend of 25.97 cents per share today.The recent market crash has helped push the yield up to 4.5% a year, handsomely covered 3.2 times by earnings. Prudential stock now trades at a bargain valuation of just 8.6 times earnings.These are unnerving times, as we wait to see how far the coronavirus spreads, but now could be the perfect time to buy Prudential. Especially if China is over the worst.

Which current international winger has won two Leinster Schools Cup titles with Blackrock College and will appear in his first World Cup later this year? You may have run through the Irish back-line and narrowed it down to Luke Fitzgerald, and you’d be right. But you’d also be right if you said Russia’s Vasily Artemiev.Fitzgerald and Artemiev have been on remarkably similar career paths since the latter first appeared at Blackrock College. His parents were keen for their son to have the best education possible so opted for Blackrock College, with its reputation for producing excellent academic results and outstanding young men, as well as having a strong rugby programme. The last point was the clincher for Artemiev himself.The winger, who was first introduced to rugby aged nine in his hometown of Zelenograd, fell in love with the pressure of playing for a school with over 100 years of rugby tradition as soon as he arrived in 2002.“From day one when I came to Rock training I wanted to be a Rock man through and through. When it came to game days you were part of a tight group, it was something special playing for the school,” says Artemiev, with just a lingering of a south Dublin accent. Artemiev’s form saw him selected for the age-grade sides of Leinster and Ireland, before securing a place at the Leinster Academy for two years.“I found it difficult to stay on top of my game and balance this with college,” says Vasily, who was tipped by many to go on to full Ireland honours. “Life in the academy was very demanding and sometimes I missed rugby due to my studies. I did what I had to do to get my degree first. I was a bit upset when I left the academy, but in my final year of college I really enjoyed my rugby and felt under less pressure.”He has shown explosive pace on the sevens circuit and has proved to be a devastating finisher – but in 2011 he has been concentrating on the 15-a-side game. “I enjoyed the sevens immensely, but there is a small pool of players for the national sides and many of us have had to play both sevens and 15s regularly. Thankfully, those involved in the RWC aren’t playing sevens this year.”While it might sound like a welcome break, it has meant more work. The squad have been working hard all season, with an acclimatisation camp in New Zealand in early January something he doesn’t remember too fondly. “Our strength and conditioning coach has been doing great work, but he pushed us beyond our limits in New Zealand.“We crawled off the field a few times! All the good work done by the coaching staff will prepare us well for the RWC. Hopefully our trip to New Zealand will have won over the local support for our games.” There is debate over his best position after his impressive performances at full-back in last year’s Churchill Cup. Those displays caught the eye of Northampton and Artemiev will try to break into the Saints squad after the World Cup – no easy feat when you consider the quality in their back division. “I’m under no illusions. I know it will be a real challenge to make the first-team squad but I’ve set myself that target for next season and want to play in the Premiership regularly.”Before the challenge of the Premiership, there is the small matter of a first-ever RWC for Artemiev and his team-mates. “Qualification is huge for the Russian rugby community. It means the world to those involved and is the culmination of a lot of hard work,” he says. “When we get there we want to show the world that Russia can play rugby and compete with the best. We’ve set the target of winning one game at the World Cup and to make history for Russian rugby.”The Ireland match may also pit Artemiev against his old childhood friend Fitzgerald. “The game with Ireland will be interesting. I was incredibly proud to represent Ireland and stand for the anthem, but this will be another proud day for Russia against Ireland. It’s ironic that Luke and I might play against each other, but at least we will have a chance to catch up after the game!”If Artemiev performs to his potential against Ireland, the IRFU may be left wondering about ‘the one that got away’.Vasily ArtemievAge 23 (24 July 1987)Birthplace ZelenogradPosition Wing/full-backHeight 5ft 11inWeight 14st 2lbClub VVA MoninoRussia caps 19Russia points 30 (six tries)This article appeared in Part 1 of our Rugby World Cup Supplement.To get a copy of the supplement contact [email protected]

The Genesis Group – the Advisory Group of Executive Council’s Joint Standing Committee on Local Ministry and Mission – received and reviewed 35 grant requests. Executive Council approved $821,000 in matching grants to the following ministry applications.• $510,000: six new church starts • $85,000: one renewing ministry (started in the last triennium)• $100,000: two Hybrid/Mission Enterprise Zone grants• $100,000: five new Mission Enterprise Zones• $26,000: six discernment grantsThe following are the grant recipients and a brief description from the Rev. Thomas Brackett, Episcopal Church Manager for Church Planting and Mission Development. Links to these ministries are here.New Church StartsEpiscopal Church Parker County, Diocese of Fort Worth – $100,000This ministry will plant an Episcopal Church in the middle of the largest new community currently being built in the United States (projected population of 50,000 residents). In a state where churchgoing is still the norm, many of these families will be looking for a church to attend. The Episcopal Church of Parker County, which already has roots in the area, plans to welcome them with traditional worship in the context of a generous, inclusive, Gospel-based ministry.Communidad Latina de San Dunstan, Diocese of Oklahoma – $100,000This grant funds a Latino Mission Developer Team for St. Dunstan’s in Tulsa, OK where a new Spanish-speaking faith community has begun to grow. This community is now larger than many Anglo congregations, and, to keep the momentum going, the diocesan leadership is convinced that this is the moment to approach this as an official church plant. Their long-term vision is to use St. Dunstan’s as a “ministry incubator.” Amid this stable and supportive congregation, they plan to form a mission team made up of clergy, lay missioners, Christian educators and musicians. When phase one is complete, and the community at St. Dunstan’s is firmly rooted, the mission team will work to facilitate the next church plant in Tulsa. Collaboration and mutuality will be foundational attributes of this ministry.Misa Magdalena, Diocese of Washington – $100,000The vision for this new Latino Hispanic ministry in the Aspen Hill community of Washington, DC emerged from the ministry developer’s relationships with local community leaders. They invited her to come start a new church in their community, similar to the successful Latino Hispanic congregation she recently started elsewhere. This is to be a sacramental, bilingual neighborhood church in a community with one of the highest concentrations of Latinos in the Washington DC area. Their evangelism and outreach is focused on neighbors who are un-churched or under-churched.Sudanese Congregation at St. Paul’s, Diocese of Central NY – $50,000This new ministry serving those resettled from Sudan is an important ministry in a growing and under-represented part of the Episcopal Church. The Diocese of Central New York and local congregations are keen to support the Rev. Rebecca Amour who is one of the first women priests ordained in the Episcopal Church of South Sudan. This congregation is already growing; weekly attendance is already averaging more than 50 and new families are joining regularly.Senor de la Misercordia, a partnership between the Episcopal Churches and the Lutheran Churches in Iowa – $100,000Señor de la Misericordia is a new Hispanic church community being planted within Trinity Episcopal Church in Denison, IA, in partnership with the Western Iowa Synod, ELCA. Denison’s Hispanic population has grown to nearly 50% of the town’s population, and continues to grow at a rate of 39% per year. The town’s only elementary school is located across the street from Trinity Episcopal Church, with two-thirds of students speaking Spanish. The church is in a prime location for reaching these families, equipping them for Christ’s mission and ministry. The Rev. Filemon Diaz, an ELCA pastor with a track record of developing new Hispanic congregations, has been called to lead this new faith community.Two Cultures, One Body in Christ, Diocese of New Jersey – $60,000The Diocese of New Jersey is launching a Latino Hispanic church planting initiative in Monmouth County. This initiative builds on a successful pilot program in which their missioner successfully planted two new Hispanic/Latino congregations in partnership with two existing non-Hispanic congregations (All Saints, Lakewood and St. Thomas, Red Bank) in the region. A third church plant at Christ Church, Toms River is currently in progress and demonstrating similar success. The process of building these new faith communities and moving Hispanic and non-Hispanic congregations into relationship, cultural understanding, and common worship with each other has been – and continues to be – mutually and continually transformational. This next phase of ministry seeks to build on the experience and momentum from the pilot program by adding resources and developing new practices to expand the program to include Trinity Church in Asbury Park.Renewing ministryChurch on the Square, Diocese of Maryland – $85,000The faith community known as “Church on the Square, Canton” has made great progress in these last two years, forming a faith community in full partnership with the ELCA Maryland Synod. Since funded in the last triennium, the leaders have been energetically tilling the relational soil of this culturally diverse neighborhood and this ministry is taking off. They have rehabilitated the sanctuary that Lutheran partners offered and they have established themselves as the “heart of the community.” They describe themselves as “an open, creative refuge, respectful of all beliefs … that seeks to build community in service of Southeast Baltimore. Through addressing wellness and environmental issues; nurturing arts and culture; enriching our common life together through faith, spirituality and doubt, Church on the Square seeks to be an inclusive home for you with Christ at its core.” https://www.churchonthesquarebaltimore.org/“Hybrid” Ministry StartsLatinos Pa’lante St. Mary’s Latino Ministry, Diocese of Massachusetts – $60,000This will be a Latino Hispanic faith community, sponsored by St Mary’s Episcopal Church (Dorchester MA) and the Diocese. The ministry plan describes growing the Latino presence at St. Mary’s through starting an additional service in Spanish on Sundays; through consciously and intentionally connecting with the various ministries that currently work with and impact the lives of Latinos in Dorchester and through the expansion of their parish identity to include the wide-diversity of Latino identities.The Divine Office, Diocese of Los Angeles – $40,000The Divine Office (TDO) is an ecumenical sacred co-working community for young adults who work independently, especially spiritual seekers and those who self-identify as “spiritual not religious.” TDO integrates spiritual practices of monastic communities with the secular phenomenon of creative co-work spaces, becoming a day monastery of sorts for freelancers, entrepreneurs and remote workers. TDO will be located on the campus of St. Augustine by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Santa Monica, on the far west side of Los Angeles, a downtown neighborhood of office, retail and apartment buildings where virtually all coffee shop seats fill up by 8 am with freelancers working on their laptops. In this bustling landscape, TDO will offer the sanctuary of a supportive community, rooted in Christ, a place to settle into a rule of life with the rhythm of daily prayer, meditation and worship punctuating the beginning, middle and end of the workday. TDO will be a community where young adults can forge relationships, discover and nurture their faith and explore how their spiritual and vocational lives inform one another and feed into all aspects of their lives.Mission Enterprise ZonesSt. Luke’s Ministry Interns, Diocese of Olympia – $20,000This will be a residential community of graduate level theology and psychology interns focused on contextualized ministry in a church and neighborhood with a significant population of hungry and unsheltered folks. This ministry will host experiential learning ventures in a diverse, urban and rapidly changing environment. Their ministries will be focused on the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle; the congregation reflects the significant diversity of the neighborhood in income, ethnic make-up and age. Their meals program “Edible Hope” offers ministry with their non-white neighbors, of all ages. Their resident interns serve as a bridge between the worlds of residents and the worlds of the homeless.Between the Ridges, Diocese of Spokane – $20,000Between the Ridges will coordinate a new monthly worship service at Noah’s Ark Homeless Shelter in Wapato, WA on the Yakima Reservation in central Washington. This new worship service will be shepherded by Episcopal volunteers, as well as a diversity of ecumenical partners who support Noah’s Ark, with the goal of developing leadership among the homeless. These leaders in formation will become the core of the worshipping community. Radical hospitality – a central value of Noah’s Ark Homeless Shelter – will help to shape the liturgy which will evolve through reflection on their practice, over time. They seek to reimagine a worshipping community that moves beyond the privileged welcoming people to “our” community, to forming a new community on the margins, in which we all together receive the welcome of Jesus.The Center for Mission and Ministry at St. Paul’s, Diocese of Kansas – $20,000The Center for Mission and Ministry will be a dynamic association of ministries united under one roof, sharing a common vision, congruent values, and practical resources to holistically engage their neighbors in body, mind, and spirit. This Kansas City ministry unites three Episcopal institutions in one location: St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, a 160-year-old Episcopal parish providing opportunities in English and Spanish for Christian formation, worship and service; Episcopal Community Services, leading hunger relief and anti-poverty efforts for the Episcopal Church in the Dioceses of Kansas and West Missouri; and St. Francis Community Services, dedicated to the needs of children, youth and families through advocacy, programs, and services. This strategic partnership will offer worship in English and Spanish, a co-operative food pantry, daily meal service integrating healthy eating and healthy lifestyle protocols, nutrition and cooking classes, a community garden, a Youth After-School Program incorporating life and job skills training, Yoga, ESL, Zumba, and 12-step programs.Franklinton Cycleworks, Diocese of Southern Ohio – $20,000Franklinton Cycleworks (FCW) was born in response to a material need within the community of Franklinton, OH as well as a shared longing for connectedness. The leaders are helping people overcome transportation barriers by helping them fix and maintain their bicycles; teaching bike maintenance skills in the process. Many of the shop patrons have become volunteers themselves and now assist and teach others. While many of their patrons and volunteers are residents of Franklinton (a downtown neighborhood of Columbus, OH), others come from elsewhere and from different backgrounds. It’s therefore not uncommon to see a homeless man teach a middle-class college student how to fix a flat or a jobless addict be greeted by a business CEO with dignity and respect. FCW seeks to nourish this growing sense of community and fully live into their calling as a sacred front porch or Third Place for the neighborhood.Proyecto para una panadería y pastelería, Diocese of Ecuador – $20,000This new ministry will offer healing and hope to their community by founding a bakery at the back of their church. They will sell a variety of baked goods and other products but they will freely share the Gospel. As bread is a dietary staple in the Ecuadoran diet and as good bread is in great demand, this initiative will also offer work for the young people and women attending the church as well as those yet unemployed. Many of these families had to move from Emeraldas to this Guayaquil neighborhood, following the earthquake and the destruction of their homes in April 2016.Discernment grants (offered to assist with the costs of developing a solid ministry plan that we might fund in the next triennium)Two new Latino Hispanic Church Starts, Diocese of Dallas – $5,000This is to discern the possibility of two Latino Hispanic church plants in the Diocese of Dallas.Christ Church Bayfield, Diocese of Eau Claire – $3,000This is an opportunity to partner with the Diocese of Eau Claire and with Native American Ministries. This discernment grant is to assist with the assessment, training, and coaching of leadership in the re-start of a church in Bayfield, WI adjacent to the Redcliffe Reservation.Diocese of Newark – $5000 discernment grantIn support of the Diocese of Newark as they plan to develop a new faith community. We intend for this grant to offset the costs of training and consulting for the leaders of this new church start.Diocese of Olympia – $3000 discernment grantIn support the Diocese of Olympia as it plans to develop a new faith community. We intend for this grant to offset the costs of training and consulting for the leaders of this new church start.Diocese of Iowa – $5000 discernment grantIn support of the Diocese of Iowa as it develops a new faith community focused on racial reconciliation. We intend for this grant to offset the costs of training and consulting for the leaders of this new initiative.Diocese of Arkansas – $5000 discernment grantIn support of the Diocese of Arkansas as they plant a new church focused on local food and farming. We intend for this grant to offset the costs of training and consulting for the leaders of this new initiative.For more information contact Brackett at [email protected] its October 2016 meeting, Executive Council approved the first round of grants totaling $1,797,000 for church planting and Mission Enterprise Zones, funding 34 new communities and initiatives.

Photographs: Miłosz JaksikText description provided by the architects. Two buildings of the complex were designed as gallery-type buildings placed parallelly to each other with wide boulevard between them. The third one is an apartment building. The authors’ ambition was to break pejorative reception of buildings of this type in Poland: infamous legacy of realizations in 70′. The humanized space of mini park between the buildings and galleries protected with glass against weather conditions are to create an attractive neighborhood space which usually does not exist in typical block of flats with staircase. Northern building Northern building is a five storey one with underground parking (shared with the apartment building). Communication with 3 galleries – a solid with staircase and elevator adheres on the east side. Building form is simple with galleries on the north side and a series of balconies on the south. The whole building was plastered in graphite colour while only the last storey has wooden siding. Additionally balconies are separated from each other with wooden openwork screens. Windows were designed in woodwork as porte fenetres. On the outside each window is closed by glass barrier. The galleries are screened by glass plates and their walls are covered with fibre-plasterboards in intensive yellow colour. Services functions are located on the ground level – these were glazed on the level’s circumference with big shop windows.

Apartment building Because of its location (the central part of the housing estate) and high standard this building is to be the main dominant of the estate. It was designed as six-storey building with underground parking in “cage” arrangement. There are 10 luxury apartments – 2 on each floor. The residential part of the building lies on the socle withdrawn to the inside. The socle holds entrance hall with elevator and staircase and room meant for services. The elevations: northern, eastern and western are designed as a facade with porte fenetres. On the southern elevation there are terraces covered with openwork screens made of wooden planks. All elevations are finished with graphite coloured plaster. Save this picture!© Miłosz JaksikBoulevard Between the buildings there is internal and wide public boulevard. Recreational space is located in the central part of the boulevard and is surrounded by hardened pavement on both sides.

His body was found by his wife, Ruth Marlene Torrico Sandoval, who was warned by unidentified individuals that “the same could happen to you.” Reporters Without Borders offers its condolences to the Ledesma family and hopes the police quickly identify the motive for the murder and those responsible. The investigators should take account of the fact that threats were made against the victim’s family. Journalists are rarely killed in connection with their work in Argentina but this possibility should not be ruled out.Ledesma had worked for several years as a journalist and social worker for Mundo Villa, a community network serving Bolivian, Paraguayan and Peruvian immigrant workers in Buenos Aires. It has a daily newspaper, Mundo Villa, focusing on cultural and social issues, which is distributed free of charge and has a correspondent in each immigrant neighbourhood. Ledesma was one of the newspaper’s neighbourhood correspondents as well being the director of the newly created TV station. The network is also in the process of creating a website.The Buenos Aires daily Página 12 quoted Mundo Villa editor Teodoro Pancho Benavídez as saying the creation of these media had helped improve conditions for immigrant workers in these shantytowns (“villas de emergencia”) and had helped elicit a positive response from the local authorities as regards the conditions there.(photo: blogs.clarin.com) News News Receive email alerts ArgentinaAmericas News News Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political elites December 4, 2019 Find out more
RSF_en LibyaMiddle East – North Africa Well-known Libyan journalist missing since his arrest News News February 23, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Libya Receive email alerts LibyaMiddle East – North Africa On Libyan revolution’s 10th anniversary, authorities urged to guarantee press freedom News Organisation April 21, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two photojournalists killed by mortar round in Misrata, two others wounded Reporters Without Borders is shocked and saddened by the news that Tim Hetherington, a British photojournalist working for Vanity Fair, and Chris Hondros, a US photojournalist working for Getty Images, were killed by a mortar round yesterday in Misrata, in western Libya. Two other photographers, Michael Brown of the Corbis Agency and British freelancer Guy Martin, were also wounded. All four were on Tripoli Street, the main road through Misrata, which was the scene of the fiercest fighting in an offensive by troops loyal to Col. Muammar Gaddafi.“We offer our condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Journalism has lost two great professionals whose work gave us remarkable images of recent wars. This tragedy has yet again highlighted the dangers that journalists run when they cover wars. Their deaths bring the number of journalists killed in Libya since the start of the fighting to four.”Hetherington, who was killed instantly by the mortar explosion, was best known for his full-length documentaries. Born in 1970, he lived and worked for eight years in West Africa and was the only photographer to live behind rebel lines during the civil war in Liberia in 2003. He contributed to the making of Liberia: an Uncivil War (2004) and The Devil Came on Horseback (2007), about the Darfur conflict.He won leading international photojournalism prizes including the World Press Photo in 2007 for his photos of US soldiers in Afghanistan. They formed the basis of the documentary “Restrepo,” which he made with Sebastian Junger. It was nominated for an Oscar and won the Grand Jury Prize for best documentary at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.Hondros, who died few hours later from the head injuries he sustained in the blast, had covered most of the leading conflicts since the 1990s including Kosovo, Angola, Sierra Leone, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Kashmir, West Bank, Iraq and Liberia. Born in 1970, he had won many international prizes.The first journalist to be killed during the fighting in Libya was Ali Hassan Al Jaber, a Qatari cameraman working for Al-Jazeera. He was shot in an ambush near Benghazi on 12 March, in which a colleague was also wounded. The second was Mohamed “Mo” Al-Nabous, a Libyan journalist and blogger who was one of the founders of the Libyan TV station Libya Al-Hurra. He was killed by a sniper in Benghazi on 19 March.

The fate of persistent organic pollutants in sea ice is a poorly researched area and yet ice serves as an important habitat for organisms at the base of the marine foodweb. This study presents laboratory-controlled experiments to investigate the mechanisms governing the fate of organic contaminants in sea ice grown from artificial seawater. Sea ice formation was shown to result in the entrainment of chemicals from seawater, and concentration profiles in bulk ice generally showed the highest levels in both the upper (ice-atmosphere interface) and lower (ice-ocean interface) ice layers, suggesting their incorporation and distribution is influenced by brine advection. Results from a 1-D sea ice brine dynamics model supported this, but also indicated that other processes may be needed to accurately model low-polarity compounds in sea ice. This was reinforced by results from a melt experiment, which not only showed chemicals were more enriched in saltier brine, but also revealed that chemicals are released from sea ice at variable rates. We use our results to demonstrate the importance of processes related to the occurrence and movement of brine for controlling chemical fate in sea ice which provides a pathway for exposure to ice-associated biota at the base of the pelagic food web.
