Here are several that have caught my attention today.#1: One of the best food-to-go stocks to buyI think food-to-go manufacturer Bakkavor Group is a great value stock to buy today. City analysts believe this UK share’s earnings will rise 20% in 2021. This leaves the company trading on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.8. Any reading below 1 suggests that a UK share is undervalued by the market.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…I think it’s a great buy despite the threat posed by the rise of homeworking in the post-coronavirus era, an issue that could have a serious impact on the takeaway lunch market. The company is the leading industry player on these shores, while it’s also rapidly improving its footprint in the hot US and China growth markets.#2: Making money from e-commerceI think getting exposure to the booming e-commerce market is a great idea. And one low-cost way to do this is by investing in Macfarlane Group. This UK share makes packaging products and labels, products that are obviously essential in the distribution of goods from company to customer.It’s true that soaring raw material costs is casting a cloud over profit levels at this small-cap. But I think it remains a great buy as e-commerce volumes look set to keep growing at breakneck speed. Macfarlane is expected to enjoy a 38% earnings increase this year. This results in a PEG multiple of just 0.4.#3: An emerging market’s mammothCity analysts are tipping explosive profits growth at Stock Spirits Group too. They think earnings at the small cap — which sells alcoholic beverages in emerging European markets such as Czechia and Poland — is expected to see earnings soar 117% this fiscal year as the hospitality sector gradually recovers following Covid-19 lockdowns.This leaves the firm trading on a forward PEG readout of 0.1. I think this could be one of the best stocks to buy to ride rising spirits demand in Central and Eastern Europe. Though do remember any upsurge in coronavirus cases would take another meaty bite out of revenues.#4: Near-7% dividend yields!I think PayPoint could be one of the best cheap stocks to buy for all-round value. City brokers reckon the company — which builds highly-complex retail terminals for convenience stores — will enjoy a 132% year-on-year earnings improvement this fiscal year. Consequently, it changes hands on a forward PEG ratio of 0.1. What’s more, PayPoint boasts a mighty 6.8% dividend yield at current prices.I expect the business to generate enormous profits as the rollout of its cutting-edge PayPoint One systems continues. Though it’s important to remember that any technological failures could be catastrophic for vendors and this could hit future orders hard.last_img read more

Episcopal Church challenged to repent for when it failed to…

first_img Rector Pittsburgh, PA January 23, 2018 at 11:49 am This is painful subject and I respect that some who have been victimized may choose not to revisit their experience. But inviting the voice of those who suffered is an important part of repentance and re-turning the church to health and wholeness. Those victimized directly and those who perpetrated these offenses are being invited into a conversation that will aid in healing brokenness. And we are called to examine not only individual sin but corporate sin, that is, a systemic silence over many years. I cannot help but believe the silence we were met with in response to clergy misconduct in the church of my childhood was in part intended to spare members embarrassment in the larger community, avoid conflict in the congregation, and protect the children. Sins committed on our behalf… Our lamentation can only truly begin when we begin to hear the stories of pain and loss.

Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, issued a call Jan. 22 for the Episcopal Church to spend Lent and beyond examining its history and its handling or mishandling of cases of sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse.The two say in a letter to the church that recent “compelling testimony from women who have been sexually harassed and assaulted by powerful men has turned our minds to a particularly difficult passage of holy scripture.” The story of the rape of King David’s daughter Tamar by her half-brother Amnon (2 Samuel 13:1-22), they said, “is a passage in which a conspiracy of men plots the exploitation and rape of a young woman. She is stripped of the power to speak or act, her father ignores the crime, and the fate of the rapist, not the victim, is mourned.“It is a Bible story devoid of justice.”Jennings announced the letter during the opening session of the winter meeting of the church’s Executive Council at the Maritime Institute Conference Center outside Baltimore.She and Curry call in their letter for an Ash Wednesday Day of Prayer on Feb.14, during which Episcopalians should meditate on how the church has “failed to stand with women and other victims of abuse and harassment.”“We believe that each of us has a role to play in our collective repentance,” they wrote.They added that a Lenten discipline for the church would be to “consider how to redouble the church’s effort build “communities of safety that stand against the spiritual and physical violence of sexual exploitation and abuse.”Curry and Jennings said: “As our societies have been forced into fresh recognition that women in all walks of life have suffered unspoken trauma at the hands of male aggressors and harassers, we have become convinced that the Episcopal Church must work even harder to create a church that is not simply safe, but holy, humane and decent.”The two presiding officers also want to have General Convention discuss these issues because they “want to hear the voice of the wider church as we determine how to proceed in both atoning for the church’s past and shaping a more just future.”Jennings told the council that many Christians might think that such exploitation and abuse happen only in Hollywood or in business and industry “but not in the holy work we do.” However, she said, “those problems have been endemic in our culture in the church for far longer than Hollywood, or tech culture, or corporate journalism have existed.”On the agendaExecutive Council is meeting Jan. 22-24. A major agenda item is finishing work on the canonically required draft of the 2019-2021 churchwide budget. Jennings said the current working version is filled with “big dreams and limited resources.” She told council that the final version of the budget hinges, in part, “on our ability to have holy, respectful, and civil conversations about how we allocate our resources for God’s work in the world.”According to the joint rules of General Convention (II.10.c.ii on page 227 here), council must give its draft budget to General Convention’s Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PB&F) no less than four months before the start of General Convention (essentially by February of convention year). PB&F will meet next from Feb. 5-7 to begin work on that draft budget.Council’s Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Mission (FFM) has been crafting the draft budget for much of the current triennium, gathering information and input from committees, the churchwide staff, dioceses and Episcopalians. While council is not required to give PB&F a balanced budget, that is FFM’s goal, the Rev. Mally Lloyd, the committee member leading the budget work, told council Jan. 22.The committee has eliminated a large gap between anticipated revenue and those big dreams Jennings mentioned. The deficit was just more than $12 million at the start of council’s October meeting and $8 million at the end.Council then asked the church for input on the budget in November and posted a version showing that FFM had reduced the deficit to $4.5 million.On Jan. 22, Lloyd and FFM chair Tess Judge showed the council a current working draft that is essentially balanced. Revenue is increased based on the fact that diocesan income was up nearly 3 percent in 2016 over 2015. Based on the formula used to calculated diocesan payments to the churchwide budget, that means $2 million more in the coming triennium.Tess Judge, chair of the Finances for Mission (FFM) committee, reports on the big work of this #excoun meeting: the draft budget.— Holli (@BeingHolli) January 22, 2018What Judge called exceptional investment performance in 2017 of 20 percent added $1 million to the anticipated income for the coming triennium, based on how the draw on investment income is calculated.In addition, Lloyd said “we adjusted every single expense line a little bit” to trim $1.5 million, thus making up the $4.5 million deficit.“Brothers and sisters, we still have some work to do,” Judge told council members, explaining that some line items still need to be tweaked after talking with staff.Judge and Lloyd stressed that it is hard to do a line-by-line comparison of the current budget and the draft of the 2019-2021 plan. The current budget was structured around the Five Marks of Mission while the draft is built on categories of the Jesus Movement. “It’s a lot of new things and a lot of changed things in this budget,” Lloyd said. Council discussed how to note those differences in the document it sends to PB&F.Council is due to vote on the final version of its draft budget on Jan. 24.The rest of the meetingAfter the opening plenary on Jan. 22, council spent the rest of the day meeting in its five committees. Council will meet again in plenary the morning of Jan. 23. The members will approve its Blue Book report to General Convention and elect the bishop member to its Anglican Consultative Council delegation. On Jan. 24, council committees will each report to the full body, proposing resolutions for the full body to consider.Some council members are tweeting from the meeting using #ExCoun.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1). The council comprises 38 members – 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons, and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies. In addition, the vice president of the House of Deputies, secretary, chief operating officer, treasurer and chief financial officer have a seat and voice but no vote.— The Rev.

first_img Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder June 18, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Pakistan The Pakistan Press Foundation Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire The major daily Dawn For the time being, Pakistanis are enthusiastically using cybercafés, which are everywhere in the cities. In Peshawar, a new one opens nearly every day.Use of the Internet during the Pearl caseThe Daniel Pearl murder showed how the Internet can exacerbate rising tensions in Pakistan. The Musharraf government supported the Taliban in Afghanistan until the 11 September attacks and has to cope with Islamic fundamentalists in Pakistan itself. The Internet can also be used by these extremists to their advantage. The kidnapping of Wall Street Journal reporter Pearl on 23 January 2002 and his murder by a Pakistani fundamentalist group was an example. The kidnappers made great use of the Internet, logging on with their personal computers and in cybercafés to announce the kidnapping, put out political statements and generally publicise their crime.The case could perhaps hamper growth of the Internet in Pakistan. The US government regularly complains about how Al-Qaeda militants use the Internet, often from Pakistan, to put out their messages, organise themselves and launch operations.In January 2003, the Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) was put in charge of fighting cybercrime and cyber-terrorism and with US money and staff support, the government set up a system of surveillance of the Internet. Until then, Pakistan police had only three officers trained in combating cybercrime. The authorities have not said whether the FIA will monitor e-mail messages. Military regime targets South Asia Tribune siteThe information ministry indicated in a special announcement on 2 November 2002 that newspapers reproducing articles from the Washington-based South Asia Tribune website ( could be prosecuted under a new libel law that came into effect a month earlier and provides for up to three months in jail, a fine of about 50,000 rupees (850 euros) and an obligatory public apology by those found guilty.The South Asia Tribune was founded in July 2002 by Shaheen Sebhai, a former senior editor of the daily The News, who has been exiled in the United States since March 2002. The website has reported several corruption and human rights scandals involving the government and gets about 100,000 visitors a month. Pakistani papers have also reprinted material from it. The information ministry announcement did not mention Sebhai or his website by name, simply referring to a Pakistani journalist it said had gone into voluntary exile and launched a campaign to defame the government and its officials.Since he has been in exile, Sebhai has been targeted by the government. An army employee filed a complaint against him for a burglary supposedly committed in February 2001 and several of his friends were arrested and held several weeks in Islamabad in connection with it. Journalist colleagues have been threatened by intelligence agents for publicly defending him. Attempts to control the InternetThe South Asia Tribune site reported in November 2002 that the PTA had in July that year ordered ISPs and cybercafé owners to keep a record of the names, connection times, numbers called and computer identities of their customers. Senior PTA official Col. Nayyar Hassan said the order to ISPs to keep this data for a month was justified by the rise in cybercrime. Cybercafé owners were required to keep such records for two weeks. The South Asia Tribune said the PTA had issued a reminder in August that the data should collected and kept. However, Col. Hassan himself admitted the order was being disregarded.The Pakistan Telecommunication Company (PTCL) announced on 2 April 2003 that 400 new sites with “indecent” content had been added to an earlier list of 100 banned websites and asked Internet operators to block access to them. ISPs said the move would slow down Internet access. A senior PTCL official, Zahir Khan, said on 6 April that access to nearly 1,800 pornographic sites had been banned and that the PTCL was thinking of importing software to make it easier to do. Also targeted were “anti-Islamic” and “blasphemous” sites. The PTCL admitted the blocking would temporarily slow down Internet navigation but said it was necessary because of what it called the great threat to society from such sites. Mairajul Huda, a leader of the Islamist Jamaat-e-Islami party, welcomed the moves and said the electronic media had to be reformed to bring them into line with the country’s culture and religion so young people would not be tempted by such evil.Cyberwar between India and PakistanThe Pakistani government set up a special interministerial committee in May 2003 to counter increasing attacks on government websites by Indian hackers who were making them inaccessible. Information technology minister Awais Ahmad Khan Leghari said that if the attackers were identified, the government would take the matter to the relevant international authorities to seek their punishment. The previous month, he had said the government was thinking of hiring its own hackers to fight the attacks. The daily paper The News said the government’s working group on Internet security was responsible for protecting the country’s cyber-security.

This is mainly because of the country’s large size and low level of economic development, including only a few million private phone lines, mostly in big cities. Gen. Pervez Musharraf’s government appears to favour its growth, even though on the day he seized power, 12 October 1999, the army cut off all Internet connections for several hours, and in July 2002, the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) tried to force cybercafés owners to record the names of their customers.Gen. Musharraf says his government has invested more than 100 million euros in communications and sharply reduced the cost of connections and services since 1999. Pakistan has since launched a programme to boost digital technology, the Information Technology and Telecom Policy.Slow and difficult developmentThis policy has led the government to cut Internet connection costs and invest in telecommunications infrastructure, while putting the Internet under the direct supervision of the PTA. The state’s monopoly in the sector ended in December 2001 but big Internet operators such as AOL are reluctant to invest in a country where scant profits are to be made. The Internet is not yet widespread and is still mainly accessed through cybercafés. It does not seem to be especially censored. But the Daniel Pearl kidnapping and murder case showed how it could be used by extremists. The military regime has made every effort to block access to a US-based investigative journalism website.
