first_imgNo savings at 50? I’d buy FTSE 100 stocks in 2020 to retire early on a rising passive income Generating a rising passive income in retirement could be a realistic goal – even if you have no savings at age 50. The FTSE 100’s 16% total return in 2019 highlights the growth potential that can be provided by the stock market.As such, now could be the right time to buy a range of large-cap shares to boost your chances of enjoying financial freedom in older age. Despite its surge in the last 12 months, a number of FTSE 100 shares appear to offer growth potential at a reasonable price. They may also provide a generous income in the long run that beats inflation.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…Investment potentialSince most people aged 50 are likely to have a long time horizon until they choose to retire, they may wish to focus their capital on riskier assets such as shares. Certainly, they may be more volatile than assets such as cash and bonds. However, in the long run they may provide higher returns. And with a long time horizon, there is likely to be sufficient time for a recovery from a bear market or recession.At the present time, the FTSE 100 appears to offer numerous opportunities to generate an impressive total return. Its performance in 2019 may have been exceptional, but its 9% annualised total returns since inception in 1984 highlight that the index has a solid track record when it comes to generating growth.With many investors adopting a cautious stance at the present time due to risks such as Brexit and a global trade war, many large-cap shares trade at a discount to their intrinsic value. This could mean that their returns are highly impressive over the coming years, which may enable you to generate a sizeable nest egg by the time you retire.Passive income opportunityAs well as its growth potential, the FTSE 100 also offers an impressive income opportunity. Around a quarter of its members have yields that are above 5% at the present time. In many cases, they are expected to produce strong bottom-line growth, which could enable them to grow dividends at a faster pace than inflation.This could mean that you gradually build a nest egg capable of providing an attractive income in older age – especially when compared to the low returns that are available on other assets such as cash and bonds.Starting todayWith it being simple and relatively cheap to start investing in the stock market, now could be the right time to start buying FTSE 100 shares. They may have experienced rapid growth in the past year, but that could continue, and their track records and valuations suggest that further upside may be on offer. In time, they could make a significant contribution to your retirement plans – even from a standing start at age 50.

first_img Rector Smithfield, NC Love argued in his eight-page pastoral letter from November that obeying B012 would cause him to destroy rather than “guard the faith, unity and discipline of the church,” as he and all bishops vow to do during their ordination and consecration. In addition to that vow, all ordained Episcopalians pledge to “conform to the doctrine, discipline, and worship of the Episcopal Church.”Love said that while he respects the authority of General Convention “as an institutional body,” his “ultimate loyalty as a bishop in God’s holy Church is to God.”He also argued that obeying Resolution B012 would require him to violate his vow to uphold the Albany canons, one of which (Canon XVI here) forbids diocesan clergy from officiating, participating or facilitating same-sex marriages in public or in private. “Unions other than those of one man and one woman in Holy Matrimony, even if they be recognized in other jurisdictions, shall be neither recognized nor blessed in this diocese,” the canon says.At the end of his letter, Love said that “until further notice” the trial rites authorized by Resolution B012 “shall not be used anywhere in the Diocese of Albany by diocesan clergy (canonically resident or licensed).”As the diocese awaited the presiding bishop’s decision, Love brought the controversy into his Christmas message, likening his journey to the unanswered questions that Mary and Joseph faced when they responded to God’s call. “Are we, like Mary and Joseph, willing to risk our reputations, our relationships, our jobs and livelihood?” he asked in part.Meanwhile, in the other seven diocesesLove is the only one of the church’s 101 domestic diocesan bishops who is flatly refusing to conform to B012. Gumbs, the only one of the eight who previously refused to allow use of the rites, has now told his clergy to offer them without further obstacles.Central Florida and Dallas, like Albany, have canons that restrict marriage to heterosexual couples. Brewer in Central Florida and Sumner in Dallas have turned over to another bishop part of all of their pastoral oversight of any congregation that wishes to provide the rites, as has North Dakota’s Smith. Martins in Springfield has said he plans to do the same.Florida’s Howard has said he would do the same; however, some in that diocese have told ENS they are confused and worried about his process to accomplish that delegation.Tennessee Bishop John Bauerschmidt has yet to articulate his policy, although he had pledged to have a process for enacting B012 sometime this month.Read more about itThe presiding bishop said Love’s disciplinary process will center on two sections of Title IV: Canon IV.4(1)(c) (“abide by the promises and vows made when ordained”) and Canon IV.4(1)(h)(9) (“any Conduct Unbecoming a Member of the Clergy”). Those part of canons can be found on pages 206 and 207 here. The canons define conduct unbecoming a member of the clergy as “any disorder or neglect that prejudices the reputation, good order and discipline of the church, or any conduct of a nature to bring material discredit upon the church or the holy orders conferred by the church.”The text of Curry’s restriction on Love is here.More information on Title IV proceedings can be found on this interactive website.– The Rev.

Photo: Episcopal Church videoEditor’s note: This story has been updated to include Bishop William Love’s response to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s actions.[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has temporarily restricted part of Diocese of Albany Bishop William Love’s ministry because of Love’s refusal to allow same-sex marriages after General Convention mandated liturgical marriage equality in the church’s U.S. dioceses.Love is “forbidden from participating in any matter regarding any member of the clergy that involves the issue of same-sex marriage,” Curry said in a document released Jan. 11. The restriction applies both to the Episcopal Church’s formal Title IV disciplinary process and to any action “that has or may have the effect of penalizing in any way any member of the clergy or laity or worshipping congregation of his diocese for their participation in the arrangements for or participation in a same-sex marriage in his diocese or elsewhere.”The restriction appears to enable clergy in the upstate New York diocese to solemnize the marriages of gay and lesbian couples, something Love steadfastly refused to allow.Curry also said Love’s conduct surrounding the issue “may constitute a canonical offense,” namely for violating his ordination vows and for conduct unbecoming a member of the clergy. The presiding bishop has referred Love’s refusal to obey convention’s Resolution 2018-B012 to the Rt. Rev. Todd Ousley, the church’s bishop for pastoral development and intake officer for disciplinary matters involving bishops. In the church’s Title IV disciplinary process, an intake officer’s role is to obtain as much information as possible about the alleged misconduct, short of a full investigation. His or her key goal is to decide whether or not the facts presented, if any were true, would constitute an “offense” under the canons.Bishop William Love has led the Diocese of Albany for 12 years. Photo: Diocese of AlbanyThe restriction on Love will remain in effect until any Title IV process pending against him is resolved, Curry said. The presiding bishop added that he, or the next presiding bishop if the process extends beyond the November 2024 end of his term, will “review the continued necessity of this restriction from time to time and amend or lift it as appropriate.”“While I am persuaded of the sincerity and good will of Bishop Love in these difficult circumstances, I am convinced that Resolution B012 was intended by the Convention to be mandatory and binding upon all our dioceses,” Curry wrote.He said that, as presiding bishop, “I am called upon to take steps to ensure that same-sex marriage in the Episcopal Church is available to all persons to the same extent and under the same conditions in all dioceses of the church where same-sex marriage is civilly legal.”Love told the diocese late on Jan. 11 that he plans to exercise his canonical right (via Canon IV.7.10 on page 217 here) to appeal the partial restriction on his ministry. During the appeal process, Love said, he will honor the limits that Curry placed on him.The canon says such a review must be conducted within 15 days of the delivery of a formal request to the president of the Disciplinary Board. In this case, the Disciplinary Board for Bishops would conduct such a review.Love also said in his letter that he will also be “challenging the authority and legality of Resolution B012.”The dispute arose when Love said Nov. 10 that he would not allow same-sex couples to be married by priests in the Diocese of Albany. He acknowledged that he could face disciplinary proceedings by the church for refusing to obey convention’s requirement.Shortly after Love released his pastoral letter, Curry affirmed General Convention’s authority, saying that “those of us who have taken vows to obey the doctrine, discipline and worship of the Episcopal Church must act in ways that reflect and uphold the discernment and decisions of the General Convention of the church.” Curry said in his Jan. 11 statement that he spoke with Love and consulted with a broad range of Episcopal Church leaders before reaching his decision.How the actions of General Convention led to this decisionGeneral Convention in 2015 authorized two marriage rites for trial use (via Resolution A054) by both same-sex and opposite-sex couples. The bishops and deputies also made the canonical definition (via Resolution A036) of marriage gender-neutral.A054 said that the bishops of the church’s domestic dioceses needed to give their permission for the rites to be used. (The Episcopal Church includes a small number of dioceses outside the United States in civil jurisdictions that do not allow marriage for same-sex couples.) A054 says that, even if opposed same-sex marriage, all bishops “will make provision for all couples asking to be married in this church to have access to these liturgies.”There was widespread acceptance of the rites across the church. However, eight diocesan bishops in the 101 domestic dioceses did not authorize their use. They were Love, Central Florida Bishop Greg Brewer, Dallas Bishop George Sumner, Florida Bishop John Howard, North Dakota Bishop Michael Smith, Springfield Bishop Dan Martins, Tennessee Bishop John Bauerschmidt and Virgin Islands Bishop Ambrose Gumbs.The eight bishops required that couples wanting to use the rites be married outside their dioceses and away from their home churches. Some bishops, including Love, refused to allow priests in their diocese to use the rites anywhere.Last July, convention attempted to remedy to the situation by passing the often-rewritten and often-amended Resolution B012, which went into effect on the First Sunday of Advent, Dec. 2. Bishops and deputies moved the authority for deciding to use the rites from the diocesan bishop to parish priests. B012 said diocesan bishops who do not agree with same-sex marriage “shall invite, as necessary,” another Episcopal Church bishop to provide “pastoral support” to the couple, the clergy member involved and the congregation. Some of the eight bishops have interpreted B012 as requiring – or allowing them to require – the involvement of another bishop.Love, who has refused to honor B012 at all, made his opposition to it clear during General Convention. In a House of Bishops debate on July 11, Love spoke for nearly 10 minutes, despite being told that he was exceeding the agreed-to two-minute individual limit. He said the passage of B012 would put him in the awkward position of violating of his ordination vows because its intent goes against the word of God found in Scripture, which ordained Episcopalians vow to uphold. “There has been a lot of discussion as we have struggled with this issue over the past several years on whether or not sexual intimacy within that of a same-sex couple was appropriate,” he said.“There are many in this church who have proclaimed that it is and that this is a new thing that the Holy Spirit is revealing and that the Episcopal Church is being prophetic in putting this forward, and ultimately the rest of the body of Christ will come to understand that.”He said he did not believe “that that’s necessarily true.”Love added that the church has listened to people’s personal experiences and to their “feelings, their emotions, but we have not had an honest look at what God has said about this issue and how best to help people who find themselves in same-sex relationships.” Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET General Convention, Rector Collierville, TN Tags Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Tampa, FL Submit a Press Release The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Featured Jobs & Calls Submit a Job Listing Rector Belleville, IL Curate Diocese of Nebraska center_img Rector Washington, DC Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jan 11, 2019 Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Submit an Event Listing Featured Events Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY General Convention 2018, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Rector Shreveport, LA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Martinsville, VA Resolution B012, Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Moroney was a lifelong Episcopalian who believed The Episcopal Church should be inclusive of all. She was active in political circles tackling the toughest issues of the day: civil rights, abortion rights, LGBTQ full inclusion, and voting rights, to name a few.In recent years, her work in The Episcopal Church focused on LGBTQ full inclusion, specifically the repeal of the Diocese of Texas’ discriminatory Canon 43, which prevented partnered LGBTQ people from serving in ordained ministry, a canon that was not repealed until 2016.  “Every year at Diocesan Council, Muffie would speak in favor of repealing Canon 43.  Yes, she upset some members of the diocese, but until the Diocese of Texas was fully inclusive, Muffie would not rest. She was courageous and tough, a true advocate. But she also treated everyone with dignity and respect, regardless of the side of the issue they were on,” said Laurie Eiserloh, Texas diocesan deputy and longtime friend of Moroney’s.Moroney also worked on securing the church’s blessing for same-sex relationships. The Rev. Susan Russell, former president of Integrity and Claiming the Blessing had this remembrance of Moroney, “In the early days [the early 2000s] she provided our ‘base camp’ for work and witness in Texas, networking, fundraising and organizing. I’ll never forget the meeting she brokered for us with the then bishop– the meeting we could only have if we promised not to publicize it and if we came up in the freight elevator so no one saw us enter or leave the building.  No, we didn’t get his vote on blessings, but the meeting itself was a victory for Muffie! ‘La Lucha continua’ – and as we move forward we stand on the shoulders of those like Muffie who helped break through the hard ground of resistance to change and inclusion, sowing the seeds of love, justice and compassion.”Moroney was born in Washington D.C. during World War II. She grew up in Houston and in Fort Bend County, Texas. She was a 1961 graduate of St. John’s School in Houston and a 1965 graduate of Randolph-Macon Women’s College. After graduating, she worked for the National Security Agency. She returned to Houston to study law and graduated from the University of Houston Law Center in 1982. After law school, she clerked for the Houston 14th Court of Appeals and worked for Vinson & Elkins, LLP before opening a solo litigation practice.Moroney counted among her dear friends many well-known leaders including Texas gubernatorial candidate Sissy Farenthold, journalist Molly Ivins and attorney Sarah Weddington, who was the lead attorney in the landmark abortion rights case Roe v. Wade. Also among her dear friends were many Episcopalians who changed the course of church history including Rev. Carter Heyward, one of the Philadelphia Eleven who paved the way for women’s ordination and the Rev. Helen Havens, former rector of St. Stephen’s in Houston and the first woman priest to serve in the Episcopal Diocese of Texas.Moroney served on a number of boards including Church Publishing, Planned Parenthood, St. John’s School, and Randolph-Macon Women’s College. She was an active member of Christ Church Cathedral in Houston.Moroney is survived by two grown sons and several grandchildren.Funeral arrangements are pending.

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness ELAM: Market tops display similar signs Facebook Previous articleDaddy Daughter DanceNext articleAphasia Center of West Texas annual fundraiser admin Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest West Texas Food Bank Logo Market tops display similar characteristics. This one exhibits many of the same traits seen at tops in 1966, 1987, 2000 and 2007. Here in no particular order are some of those traits.Social mood is wildly optimistic. Indeed sentiment indicators set new records not seen in decades. And when the President of the United States touts the stock market in the State of the Union message, that is not a buy but a sell signal. When the stock market becomes front page news in non-financial publications a top or bottom is usually at hand.Markets take on a parabolic look as the indexes go vertical. Extreme expressions of social mood occur near the end of a trend. This explains the vertical ascent of Bitcoin as well as the major indexes. The Dow Industrials gained 1,000 in a record seven days recently. Now the index has set a record in the other direction losing over one thousand points in one day.Fools rush in. Discount brokers saw new account openings swell some 40% in 2017. That was the 8th year of the move up from 2009. The ‘Fear of Missing Out,’ ‘FOMO’ causes new, inexperienced ‘investors’ to rush in at the wrong time. The same thing was seen in developing markets like China.This column, Friday February 2 2018 (Began Tuesday Feb 6, amid Pre Market Trading)We have consistently warned that the Dow Industrials DJIA were some 4,000 points above its widely watched 200 day moving average. Even with a 250 point sell-off this morning the DJIA is 3,500 points over its 200 day MA.Investors focus on a particular group of stocks believing the trend will last forever.1929 – Yes tech stocks then led by Radio Corporation of America RCA1960s – The Nifty Fifty2000 – Dot.com Mania2007 – Housing Boom, Mortgages2017– Facebook, Apple, Netflix, Google, PricelineJason Zweig in the Wall Street Journal muses that no one knows the reason for these sudden reversals. Yet an accountant named Ralph Nelson Elliott in the 1930s proposed a framework that answers just that question. Elliott made the case that social mood drives markets in a three steps forward, two steps back fashion. This pattern exists in smaller and larger fractals. But once the largest fractals have completed the patter, the markets reverse. This is likely the case now.Fundamental analysts like Mr. Zweig dismiss the idea of cycles but they are present in nature (four seasons) as well as human nature.Short term, we should have a corrective move up beginning Tuesday. Indeed that occurred this afternoon (the previous sentence was written this morning) at the low of 23,778. The market closed at 24,912. This fourth wave should extend to the area of 25,400-25,500. This will falsely restore some short term confidence. Look for a ‘whew, glad that is over,’ mentality to set in. This should occur by Thursday if not late Wednesday.That high should be followed by a final fifth wave down by the end of the week or early next week. After that, expect a spirited move up in A, up B, down C, up fashion. If that move fails to take out the previous highs at 26,600, the bull market from 2009 is likely over.Next update this weekend, in the mean time check out: http://www.themarketperspective.com.

He spoke about how Americans need to work together to reach their full potential of prosperity.“This is America. This used to be known as the can-do society, not the what-can-you-do-for-me society,” he said. “And there is a lot that we can do if we are simply willing to reach outside of ourselves and recognize that each person, all our fellow Americans, we are one.”At one point during Carson’s speech come up with an acronym “THINK BIG.” “T is for talent, which God gave to every person,” he began, assigning word phrases H for honest, I for Insight, N for Nice, K for Knowledge, B for Book, I for Indepth Learning, and G for God. Carson then asked those in attendance to raise their hands to “take the niceness pledge.”“Just raise your hand, everybody raise your hand,” he said, as the staff obeyed. “Now what did you just pledge to do? Be nice to every single person you encounter for one week, including your spouse!”An audience member asked Dr. Carson: “ What are your plans for the division of housing and equal opportunity overall, and how do you plan on furthering civil rights while you are here at HUD?”Dr. Carson’s answer was not direct, though he used the opportunity to address inequality and fairness for all.“I am going to do be doing what you are and that is watching to see what people are doing and more importantly listen to what people have to say,” Dr. Carson said. “There’s always a lot of different perspectives and one of the things that I have found is when you have divergent perspectives, if you can get those people to sit down and talk to each other, they will frequently be able to come up with extremely good solutions,” he said. “I believe in always giving the first pass to the people who are actually involved as opposed to imposing upon them from above.”“One of the things you will notice in this department under my leadership is that there will be a very big emphasis on fairness for everybody,” Carson told the staff. “Everything that we do, every policy; no favorites for anybody, no extra for anybody, but complete fairness for everybody. Because that is what the founders of this nation had in mind, and if you read the Constitution, it becomes very clear that that was the goal.”He would later briefly talk about find alternative ways to work with the private sector to find solutions homelessness and affordable housing availability.“We don’t necessarily have to always depend on the government and government financing,” he said when asked about such partnerships by a staffer during the question-and-answer session. “There’s a lot more money outside of government than there is inside of government, although there’s some people who would like to change that, but anyway, I won’t get into that.”At the end of the town hall meeting, one staffer stood up and thanked Carson for his speech, telling him that her and follow employees had been afraid about how the Trump administration would select HUD programs. She said his speech had reassured her that he is invested in HUD’s mission.

C. Sharma, observing that when “the child was permitted to go to his mother”, he “started playing with the mother”. “He was very happy with his mother and this Court really fails to understand as to how an observation has been made that in case the child goes with the mother, it will affect the child emotionally and mentally. He is a minor child of very tender age and he is happy with his mother”, opined the Single Judge. The present Writ Petition arose out of the order dated 06.01.2020 passed by the Principal Judge, Mandsaur, by which, the Presiding Officer in a case under the Hindu Minority & Guardianship Act, 1956, while considering the application under Section 12 of the Act, has granted the custody of the minor child to his father. The High Court was moved on 14.01.2020. Notices were issued in the matter, however, on account of lockdown, the matter was not heard. Finally, the matter was taken up through video conferencing on 25.06.2020 and this Court has directed the father to keep the child present. In the order delivered on Monday, the Single Bench recorded that the order dated 06.01.2020 passed by the Principal Judge reveals that for the last six months, the child was residing with his father, grandfather and grandmother and after discussing various judgments of the Supreme Court, the Presiding Officer has observed that at this stage if the child is separated from his father, it might adversely affect the mental status of the child. “Except for making such casual observations, no details have been looked into, especially the statutory provision as contained under Section 6 of the Hindu Minority & Guardianship Act, 1956”, noted the Single Judge. Justice Sharma proceeded to iterate that while “it is true that welfare of the child is of paramount importance keeping in view Section 17 (2) of the Guardian & Ward Act, 1890”, however, “the Court is bound to take a decision after taking into account the age, sex, religion and other factors also”. In the present case, the Court appreciated that it is dealing with the custody of a minor child, where the wife is also from a well off family, she is able to maintain herself and “it is nobody’s case that the wife doesn’t have the income to look after the child”. “As the child is happy with the mother, keeping in view the statutory provisions governing the field, the mother is granted the custody of the child”, directed the High Court.
