In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The idea of making a passive income by investing the cost of daily cup of coffee may sound far-fetched. After all, the cost of the beverage is around £2.50.This equates to £75 per month, or £900 per year. Even if an individual stopped buying one cup of coffee a day over their working lifetime of around 45 years and instead saved the money, they’d still end up with only £40,500. That’s unlikely to be sufficient to provide a worthwhile income.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…However, by investing money regularly in FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares, it’s possible to generate significantly larger amounts of capital in the long run. From it, a generous income can be drawn.Investing money in UK shares to make a passive incomeThe past performance of UK shares show they’re a sound means of generating a passive income in the long run. For example, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have produced annual total returns of around 8% over the past two decades.Assuming the same return on the earlier example of £75 per month invested in stocks, this would produce a portfolio valued at around £400,000.From this, a 4% annual withdrawal would amount to £16,000. This is significantly higher than the current State Pension. And it suggests the stock market is a worthwhile means of building a portfolio that goes on to provide a passive income in older age.Income opportunities in the stock marketOf course, many UK shares offer a higher passive income than 4% today. The stock market crash has caused many FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares to offer high dividend yields.As such, they may provide a more generous income return. They may also have the scope to deliver strong capital gains in a stock market recovery.Since the UK stock market has always bounced back from its past declines, investing in a diverse range of shares today could lead to a surprisingly large portfolio and income in the long run.For example, shares such as Aviva, Sainsbury’s, Barratt and GSK have been negatively impacted by the economic downturn this year. As such, they trade on low valuations at the present time. And that may undervalue their capital appreciation potential over the coming years.They may also have greater financial resilience than investors are currently pricing in to cope with a challenging economic environment.Investing for the long termWith regular investment services available, buying UK shares on a regular basis to make a passive income is open to nearly all investors. With the stock market priced at an attractive level today, now could be the right time to start planning for the future.For the cost of a cup of coffee a day, the potential for FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares to improve an investor’s retirement prospects seems to be a price worth paying.

Mais certains évêques ont d’emblée choisi de ne pas attendre et ont déjà commencé à autoriser des mariages gais chez eux.C’est le cas de Mary Irwin-Gibson, l’évêque anglicane de Montréal. Première femme à diriger le diocèse montréalais, son engagement envers les enjeux d’inclusion et de diversité se manifeste notamment par ses efforts pour s’exprimer en français et en mohawk. Même ouverture face à l’homosexualité: celle qui a voté en faveur du mariage gai au Synode général de 2016 a, le 13 août, officié la Messe de la fierté sans gêne aucune, devant 200 personnes.«Peu importe qui nous sommes, a déclaré l’évêque, nous faisons partie de la communauté de Dieu. Le Christ accepte tout le monde dans son Corps.»Accès limité pour l’instantEn entrevue, Mgr Irwin-Gibson explique cependant que les couples homosexuels qui demandent le mariage doivent répondre à plusieurs critères.«Ils font la demande au curé de leur paroisse. Le curé me demande la permission. Pour le moment, nous n’acceptons que des gens qui sont pratiquants. Ils sont membres d’une paroisse, ils participent financièrement. Ils sont engagés, parfois même au niveau du ministère.»Pas question, donc, de visiter l’Église anglicane le temps d’un mariage.«J’ai déjà dit non à quelques demandes, confirme-t-elle. C’était des gens qui voulaient le service de l’Église, mais qui n’étaient pas engagés du tout… Pour le moment, c’est juste pour les pratiquants. Nous reverrons notre position quand la loi sera complètement changée.»Pour qu’une loi canonique puisse être modifiée au sein de l’Église anglicane du Canada, il faut que le Synode général approuve le changement à deux reprises en ralliant les deux tiers des votes. La première lecture visant à inclure les conjoints de même sexe dans la définition du mariage anglican a eu lieu au synode de 2016, où la proposition a été adoptée de manière rocambolesque, après la rectification d’une erreur de comptage électronique. Comme les synodes nationaux ont lieu aux trois ans, la prochaine lecture se déroulera en 2019.Or, plusieurs diocèses, dont ceux de Niagara, Toronto et Ottawa, ont choisi de ne pas attendre et d’autoriser dès maintenant les mariages gais.Prudence avant le second vote«Entre la première et la deuxième lecture, explique Mgr Mary Irwin-Gibson, je ne voulais pas faire de coup d’éclat ni de presse à ce sujet. Notre objectif était d’accepter au cas par cas les couples qui ne pouvaient attendre.»Trois mariages auraient été célébrés jusqu’à présent.La révérende rappelle que, même si l’Église anglicane du Canada est complètement autonome de celle de l’Angleterre, des États-Unis ou même d’Afrique, qui est aujourd’hui le berceau de l’anglicanisme, la question n’est pas si simple.«Ça cause quand même des tensions, confirme-t-elle, parce que les Églises sont en partenariat dans une alliance anglicane. Et elles ne voient pas toujours du même œil comment les choses doivent aller.»Mgr Mary Irwin-Gibson cite l’exemple de l’ordination des femmes prêtres.«En Afrique, c’est sûr que l’ordination des femmes a été beaucoup plus lente qu’au Canada et aux États-Unis. Même à l’intérieur du Canada, il y a eu différentes vitesses pour l’adoption de ce changement. Ça va être la même chose pour le mariage gai. Il y a des régions au Canada où ce n’est vraiment pas correct pour eux. Ils ne sont pas prêts, ils ne sont pas heureux. Ils ne voient pas cela comme un geste chrétien.»Ultimement, Mgr Mary Irwin-Gibson veut éviter de froisser les sensibilités avant le second vote de 2019 qui risque d’être à nouveau très serré. Et selon l’évêque de Montréal, c’est loin d’être gagné.

Rabbi Sacks served as Chief Rabbi for 22 years before retiring in 2013. He was buried yesterday (Sunday) in a modest ceremony attended by just a few people, because of England’s current Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.In a brief statement on Saturday, Archbishop Justin spoke of his “deep sadness”, and said that Rabbi Sacks had “devoted so much of his life to reflecting on God at the most profound level – and we are all the beneficiaries of his wisdom.”Archbishop Justin added: “At the same time, Rabbi Sacks was always someone who you could relate to instantly. He was always thoroughly part of the world and he relished that.“He had a deep commitment to interpersonal relationships – and when you met him you couldn’t help but be swept up in his delight at living, his sense of humor, his kindness, and his desire to know, understand and value others.“It was that rare combination – profound depth, and equally profound commitment to relating with others – that made the leadership he offered possible.“My prayers are especially with Rabbi Sacks’s family, with all those whose lives he touched, and with the whole Jewish community as they come to terms with this great loss.May his memory be a lasting blessing.”The Council of Christians and Jews, the world’s oldest inter-faith organization, described Rabbi Sacks as “a towering religious leader and intellectual. . . He developed friendships with successive Archbishops of Canterbury, [Roman Catholic] Archbishops of Westminster and other Christian leaders.“His books, other writings, lectures and media appearances were followed and admired not only by the Jewish community but by millions of Christians and people of all faiths and none. His sparkling address to the Lambeth Conference in 2008 is still remembered today. . . His influence will endure for years to come through the many he inspired, influenced and touched with his warmth and wisdom.” New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Tampa, FL Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Submit a Job Listing Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Curate Diocese of Nebraska Featured Jobs & Calls Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Submit an Event Listing Rector Bath, NC Rector Shreveport, LA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Tags In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Press Release Service Rector Albany, NY Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Archbishop of Canterbury, Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Submit a Press Release Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Youth Minister Lorton, VA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Please enter your comment! By David Prologo, Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Emory University, and the founder and CEO of The Catching Point. Editor’s Note – This article was first published on theconversation.com UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 TAGSDietingtheconversation.com Previous article“Let’s Talk About It” Episode 14: Infinite ScholarsNext articleFlorida Hospital Apopka part of RN hiring event this month Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR For many years, the long-term success rates for those who attempt to lose excess body weight have hovered around 5-10 percent.In what other disease condition would we accept these numbers and continue on with the same approach? How does this situation sustain itself?It goes on because the diet industry has generated marketing fodder that obscures scientific evidence, much as the Wizard of Oz hid the truth from Dorothy and her pals. There is a gap between what is true and what sells (remember the chocolate diet?). And, what sells more often dominates the message for consumers, much as the wizard’s sound and light production succeeded in misleading the truth-seekers in the Emerald City.As a result, the public is often directed to attractive, short-cut weight loss options created for the purposes of making money, while scientists and doctors document facts that are steamrolled into the shadows.We are living in a special time, though – the era of metabolic surgeries and bariatric procedures. As a result of these weight loss procedures, doctors have a much better understanding of the biological underpinnings responsible for the failure to lose weight. These discoveries will upend the current paradigms around weight loss, as soon as we figure out how to pull back the curtain.As a dual board-certified, interventional obesity medicine specialist, I have witnessed the experience of successful weight loss over and over again – clinically, as part of interventional trials and in my personal life. The road to sustained transformation is not the same in 2018 as it was in 2008, 1998 or 1970. The medical community has identified the barriers to successful weight loss, and we can now address them.The body fights backFor many years, the diet and fitness industry has supplied folks with an unlimited number of different weight loss programs – seemingly a new solution every month. Most of these programs, on paper, should indeed lead to weight loss. At the same time, the incidence of obesity continues to rise at alarming rates. Why? Because people cannot do the programs.First, overweight and obese patients do not have the calorie-burning capacity to exercise their way to sustainable weight loss. What’s more, the same amount of exercise for an overweight patient is much harder than for those who do not have excess body weight. An obese patient simply cannot exercise enough to lose weight by burning calories.Second, the body will not let us restrict calories to such a degree that long-term weight loss is realized. The body fights back with survival-based biological responses. When a person limits calories, the body slows baseline metabolism to offset the calorie restriction, because it interprets this situation as a threat to survival. If there is less to eat, we’d better conserve our fat and energy stores so we don’t die. At the same time, also in the name of survival, the body sends out surges of hunger hormones that induce food-seeking behavior – creating a real, measurable resistance to this perceived threat of starvation.Third, the microbiota in our guts are different, such that “a calorie is a calorie” no longer holds true. Different gut microbiota pull different amounts of calories from the same food in different people. So, when our overweight or obese colleague claims that she is sure she could eat the same amount of food as her lean counterpart, and still gain weight – we should believe her.Lots of shame, little understandingImportantly, the lean population does not feel the same overwhelming urge to eat and quit exercising as obese patients do when exposed to the same weight loss programs, because they start at a different point.French fries and chocolate milkshakes affect people differently. Some are tempted by them, and others are not. Sheila Fitzgerald/Shutterstock.comOver time, this situation has led to stigmatizing and prejudicial fat-shaming, based on lack of knowledge. Those who fat-shame most often have never felt the biological backlash present in overweight and obese folks, and so conclude that those who are unable to follow their programs fail because of some inherent weakness or difference, a classic setup for discrimination.The truth is, the people failing these weight loss attempts fail because they face a formidable entry barrier related to their disadvantaged starting point. The only way an overweight or obese person can be successful with regard to sustainable weight loss, is to directly address the biological entry barrier which has turned so many back.Removing the barrierThere are three ways to minimize the barrier. The objective is to attenuate the body’s response to new calorie restriction and/or exercise, and thereby even up the starting points.First, surgeries and interventional procedures work for many obese patients. They help by minimizing the biological barrier that would otherwise obstruct patients who try to lose weight. These procedures alter the hormone levels and metabolism changes that make up the entry barrier. They lead to weight loss by directly addressing and changing the biological response responsible for historical failures. This is critical because it allows us to dispense with the antiquated “mind over matter” approach. These are not “willpower implantation” surgeries, they are metabolic surgeries.Second, medications play a role. The FDA has approved five new drugs that target the body’s hormonal resistance. These medications work by directly attenuating the body’s survival response. Also, stopping medications often works to minimize the weight loss barrier. Common medications like antihistamines and antidepressants are often significant contributors to weight gain. Obesity medicine physicians can best advise you on which medications or combinations are contributing to weight gain, or inability to lose weight.Third, increasing exercise capacity, or the maximum amount of exercise a person can sustain, works. Specifically, it changes the body so that the survival response is lessened. A person can increase capacity by attending to recovery, the time in between exercise bouts. Recovery interventions, such as food supplements and sleep, lead to increasing capacity and decreasing resistance from the body by reorganizing the biological signaling mechanisms – a process known as retrograde neuroplasticity.Strength conditioning builds muscle mass, which can help increase capacity. Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, CC BY-SALee Kaplan, director of the Harvard Medical School’s Massachusetts Weight Center, captured this last point during a recent lecture by saying, “We need to stop thinking about the Twinkie diet and start thinking about physiology. Exercise alters food preferences toward healthy foods … and healthy muscle trains the fat to burn more calories.”The bottom line is, obese and overweight patients are exceedingly unlikely to be successful with weight loss attempts that utilize mainstream diet and exercise products. These products are generated with the intent to sell, and the marketing efforts behind them are comparable to the well-known distractions generated by the Wizard of Oz. The reality is, the body fights against calorie restriction and new exercise. This resistance from the body can be lessened using medical procedures, by new medications or by increasing one’s exercise capacity to a critical point.Remember, do not start or stop medications on your own. Consult with your doctor first. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Direct marketing agency Talk Fundraising reports that it has achieved a 96% retention rate after the first year on behalf of mental health charity Rethink. Talk Fundraising’s Steve Philliben claims that staff retention is at the root of his company’s success. He believes that high levels of staff turnover within professional fundraising organisations contribute to rising levels of supporter attrition. Such turnover makes it difficult, he argues, for these companies to invest in training programmes.

2. Clear opt-out explanation on every address fundraising communicationEvery addressed fundraising communication will be required to carry a clear message explaining how donors can easily ‘opt-out’ of receiving future communicationsSection 6.6 of the Code, regarding Direct Marketing, now reads:a) Organisations MUST include on all fundraising communications sent to a named individual, clearly displayed details of how the recipient can, by a single step, opt-out of receiving such communications from the charity on whose behalf the communication was sent. This MUST be at least the same font size as the larger of (i) any text asking for the recipient’s personal details, or (ii) any text specifying the donation amount. If there is no text asking for personal details or specifying donation amount, this information MUST be in the minimum font size of 10.The two new standards are part of a number of changes that were announced in September, many of which were implemented within the Code in November.Although both changes come into immediate effect, the Fundraising Standards Board has agreed to a six month transition period before it will require organisations to have changed all their printed material to comply. Thus these changes will need to have been implemented by 10 June 2016.The Institute has published a list of frequently asked questions on these new changes.

In one of the articles, published on 14 November, the girl’s mother said nothing had been done since she filed a complaint several years earlier about her disappearance and that court officials had told her the case documents had been lost.The station Future TV, which did a report on the situation last July, also quoting the girl’s mother, is not being prosecuted. Allao, who faces three years in prison or a fine of 20 million Lebanese pounds (about 13,500 euros), will appear in court again on 20 May.
