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. 5 big investing time-wasters that will stop you from becoming rich Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Paul Summers Here at the Fool UK, we think it’s perfectly possible for humble private investors to generate huge wealth from the stock market. That said, there are a multitude of ways to waste your time that could really hinder returns.Here are just five to be wary of. 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…1. Constant vigilanceTruth be told, there are very few things you can control as an investor beyond how much of your money you put to work and what you choose to buy. That doesn’t stop many from tracking every percentage point move in their portfolios.Clearly, adopting a ‘buy and completely forget’ mentality when it comes to investing isn’t advised, but nor is constantly checking your investments every hour of every day. The latter can lead to unnecessary actions being taken, the costs of which mount up and dent performance.If you find yourself logging in with alarming frequency, it may be worth questioning whether your holdings truly match your risk appetite. 2. Holding too much cashJust as being too vigilant when fully invested can be counter-productive, so too can sitting on the sidelines waiting for a crash before putting your money to work. As the old adage goes, it’s time in the market not timing the market that matters. There’s nothing wrong with holding some cash in reserve, of course. Just be aware that the longer you refrain from investing it, the greater the drag on your returns will be. A better solution might be to take advantage of pound cost averaging. 3. Comparing your returns to othersCountless psychological studies have shown that our level of happiness doesn’t increase much after we achieve a certain level of income, even if the latter continues to rise. What’s more important — but ultimately a waste of time — is how we perceive our success compared to that of our peers.It’s worth remembering this when investing, particularly as social media is littered with people boasting of their winners (and usually staying quiet about their losers).Don’t waste time wishing those gains were yours — the only portfolio that matters is your own. 4. Reading bulletin boardsIt’s easy to become attached to stocks we hold. Therefore, checking in with more bearish views via a public forum sounds good in theory.Unfortunately, bulletin boards have a habit of attracting people whose sole intention is to make money through manipulating others. Those wanting to buy a stock as cheaply as possible might, for example, post lots of negative comments about a company from multiple accounts in the hope that others will sell in a panic.The message here is simple: don’t base any investment decisions solely on something you’ve read on a forum from someone you don’t know. Spend more time doing your own research.5. Building the ‘perfect’ portfolioCountless articles have been written on the subject of asset allocation — namely, how much of your money you should put into shares, bonds, gold, property and so on based on things like your age and attitude to risk.While clearly an important consideration, the fact that opinions vary indicates this isn’t — and never can be — an exact science.Don’t obsess whether you hold, say, 70% or 71% of your capital in equities — just go for a ‘good enough’ approach that matches your needs as closely as possible and allows you to sleep at night.

Undoubtedly, new models for ministry are emerging and God is calling upon us to unite and respond.”Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, in responding to the change in plan, said, “EYE is one of the most important and transformational ministries of The Episcopal Church. Over the years, so many youths have begun their journey in the Jesus Movement through it, so many have deepened their faith by it, so many have gone on to proclaim the Way of Love based on their experiences during it. We make this decision now out of an abundance of not just caution, but also of love for our youth and those who serve them.”Since the adoption in 1982 of General Convention Resolution #1982-D079 , the Church has supported an international youth ministry event at least once during each triennium. Last summer’s successful Evento de Jóvenes Episcopales (EJE) in Panama City, Panama, fulfills this requirement for the present triennium. The Office of Youth Ministries remains committed to embracing and lifting up “the energy of the youth of The Episcopal Church” so that it “can continue to be utilized in active ministry as members of the Body of Christ.”In coming months, the Department of Faith Formation anticipates offering an alternative means of responding to God’s call to “Unite/Uninamos,” which was the planned theme for EYE20. Titled Episcopal Youth Experience or EYEx, the content will be planned and implemented by an EYEx Steering Committee, made up of youth and adults from the EYE20 planning team and the Youth Ministry Council of Advice.“I recently was invited to join Encuentro de Jóvenes, an online youth gathering in Province IX, which was creative, inspiring, and hopeful,” continued Skov. “This event gave me hope for what we can do together online since we cannot gather in person.”Details about EYEx will be available in the fall.For questions or additional information, contact Bronwyn Skov, [email protected] or 212-716-6074.[25 de agosto, 2020] El Departamento de Formación en la Fe de la Iglesia Episcopal, en colaboración con el equipo de planificación del 2020 Evento de la Juventud Episcopal (EYE20) y el liderazgo de la Iglesia Episcopal, anunciaron hoy que el Evento de la Juventud Episcopal (EYE) no se convocará este trienio debido a la pandemia de COVID-19 en curso.“Reconozco y comparto la profunda decepción que esto tiene”, dijo Bronwyn Clark Skov, oficial de personal de los Ministerios de la Juventud. “Durante el próximo año, nuestra oficina se enfocará en discernir e implementar un apoyo creativo y significativo para el ministerio de la juventud y la formación de líderes. Sin duda, están surgiendo nuevos modelos de ministerio y Dios nos llama a unirnos y responder”.El Obispo Presidente Michael Curry, al responder al cambio de plan, dijo: “EYE es uno de los ministerios más importantes y transformadores de la Iglesia Episcopal. A lo largo de los años, muchos jóvenes han comenzado su camino en el Movimiento de Jesús a través de él, muchos han profundizado su fe por él, muchos han ido a proclamar el Camino del Amor en base a sus experiencias durante el mismo. Tomamos esta decisión ahora por una abundancia no solo de precaución, sino también de amor a nuestra juventud y aquellos que sirven a los jóvenes”.Desde la adopción en 1982 de la #1982-D079 Resolución de la Convención General #1982-D079, la Iglesia ha apoyado un evento internacional del ministerio de la juventud al menos una vez durante cada trienio. El exitoso Evento de los Jóvenes Episcopales (EJE) del verano pasado en la Ciudad de Panamá, Panamá, cumple con este requisito para el presente trienio. La Oficina de los Ministerios de la Juventud sigue comprometida a abrazar y elevar “la energía de los jóvenes de la Iglesia Episcopal” para que “pueda continuar utilizándose en el ministerio activo como miembros del Cuerpo de Cristo”.En los próximos meses, el Departamento de Formación en la Fe prevé ofrecer un medio alternativo para responder al llamado de Dios a “Unite/Unámonos”, que fue el tema planificado para EYE20. Titulado Experiencia de la Juventud Episcopal o EYEx, el contenido será planificado e implementado por un Comité Directivo de EYEx, compuesto por jóvenes y adultos del equipo de planificación EYE20 y el Consejo de Asesoramiento del Ministerio de la Juventud.“Recientemente me invitaron a unirme al Encuentro de los Jóvenes, un encuentro juvenil en línea en la IX Provincia, que fue creativo, inspirador y esperanzador”, continuó Skov. “Este evento me dio la esperanza de lo que podemos hacer juntos en línea ya que no podemos reunirnos en persona”.Los detalles sobre EYEx estarán disponibles en el otoño.Si tiene preguntas o información adicional, contacte a Bronwyn Skov, [email protected] o 212-716-6074.

Reporters Without Borders and the Damocles Network will officially be part of the prosecution of the killers of journalist Jaime Garzón
News July 11, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders and the Damocles Network will officially be part of the prosecution of the killers of journalist Jaime Garzón RSF_en ColombiaAmericas Follow the news on Colombia News Reporters Without Borders and its judicial arm, the Damocles Network, announced today that they would officially be part of the team prosecuting two men accused of the 1999 murder of journalist and satirist Jaime Garzón. The two organisations, which will be represented by Alirio Uribe, of the José Alvear Restrepo Lawyers’ Collective, moved to intervene out of concern at the way the investigation was going, with evidence about army involvement being rather quickly brushed aside.”We hope the evidence investigators did not look at during the enquiry will be considered at the trial,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard and Damocles Network vice-president Jean-Pierre Getti in a letter to the trial judge, Julio Ballesta Silva.This initiative, the first by Reporters Without Borders in Latin America, also aims to keep attention in Colombia focused on the aftermath of a murder that unleashed an unprecedented wave of emotion in the country, with several hundred thousand people attending Garzón’s funeral to pay their respects.By their action, the two organisations hope to set an important precedent in the fight against the impunity enjoyed by too many of the killers of journalists in Colombia. About 40 journalists have been murdered there over the last decade and virtually all their killers remain unpunished.Colombia is on a blacklist of 21 countries where murderers, torturers and kidnappers of journalists act with complete impunity. The list was released on 1 July by Reporters Without Borders and the Damocles Network. April 27, 2021 Find out more ColombiaAmericas to go further RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Receive email alerts October 21, 2020 Find out more Reports May 13, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders and its judicial arm, the Damocles Network, announced today that they would officially be part of the team prosecuting two men accused of the 1999 murder of journalist and satirist Jaime Garzón. The Garzón murderGarzón, a journalist and satirist with the radio station Radionet and with Caracol Television, was gunned down in Bogota on 13 August 1999 by two men on a motorcycle. The investigating judge, Eduardo Meza, officially closed the preliminary enquiry on 2 January this year.He said the killing had been ordered by Carlos Castaño, head of the paramilitary United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia (AUC), and carried out by Juan Pablo Ortiz Agudelo (“El Bochas”), the gunman, and Edilberto Antonio Sierra Ayala (“Toño”), the driver of the motorcycle. The two killers were arrested in January 2000 and September 2001 respectively. A warrant for Castaño’s arrest was issued in June 2000. The motive for the murder is thought to have been Garzón’s involvement in negotiations to win the release of people kidnapped by guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). The AUC chief is thought to have accused the journalist of playing into the hands of the FARC and also of getting paid for his services. Some press reports said evidence that suggested the country’s army was mixed up in the killing was dismissed by the investigators. These reports said sections of the army feared Garzón might reveal they were involved in arms and kidnapping rackets with the FARC. The investigators replied that such evidence was unconfirmed. After the enquiry officially ended, the case was handed to the seventh division criminal court in Bogota. Since 1 July, the parties to the case – the lawyers for the Garzón family and his woman companion, those of the accused and the public prosecutor – have had 10 days to tell the judge of evidence they want to be considered during the trial, which could then begin and last a maximum one year.

Top of the News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Photo courtesy Lake Avenue ChurchJohnny (8), his father Simon, and I walked through the halls of the Maple Street Building. It was VBS week and the rooms were full of children. One child after the next said â€œHi, Johnny.â€ As more kids passed by saying â€œHiâ€ to him, I responded with excitement, â€œWow Johnny, everyone knows you!â€They have been here in Pasadena for the first year of Simonâ€™s PhD in Intercultural Studies at Fuller Seminary. He is doing research on how Christians in Manus evaluate traditional responses to sickness in light of the Bible and their Christian faith.One Sunday after the service Johnny went up to Pastor Greg and handed him a drawing he did of Maple Street. He had pasted two dollar bills as the windows. It wasnâ€™t the money on the paper that made it important. Johnny had just shared with me that in Sunday School he had learned that money isnâ€™t the most important. Rather, itâ€™s that he saw the value of the building and itâ€™s potential.“I decided to give to Lake so that more people would feel comfortable and more people would come and learn about Jesus.”Since 2006 Johnnyâ€™s family have been working with Liebenzell Mission International to support the ministry of the Evangelical Church of Manus. Manus is an island north of New Guinea and part of the nation Papua New Guinea. Johnnyâ€™s father is currently the Dean of a small Bible School there and his mom supports the churchâ€™s Sunday School ministry.Johnny said, â€œI learned in Sunday School that Jesus is always there for us. I donâ€™t go every week because I like to sit with my parents in the main service. I learned there that no one but Jesus can make us better. Also I like the music and think Pastor Greg is really funny!â€I asked Johnny why he gave to the Maple Street Renovation Project. â€œI gave because I saw the building and how old it was and said, â€˜No thatâ€™s not good.â€™ I decided to give to Lake so that more people would feel comfortable and more people would come and learn about Jesus.â€He continued by sharing how he sang in the Choristers choir, did VBS story-time and baked a cake made of marshmallows in the Maple Street building.â€œWe played man overboard and pushed over the benches of people into the sea. Then they pushed me! We played the game after the teacher told us the Bible story of Jonah. It was fun!â€ shared Johnny.â€œI hope that more people will come to know Jesus when the new building is there. If people go in and they donâ€™t feel comfortable because the building is in bad shape, they probably wonâ€™t come back because they wonâ€™t feel welcomed -especially if they see the sinks!â€This past Saturday, Johnny and his family went back to Papua New Guinea. Although their time here was short, we thank him for his giving heart and being faithful to giving so that more people would come to know Jesus Christ through the ministries and rebuilding of Maple Street.For more about the building project and ways to give visit https://maplestreet.lakeave.org.Lake Avenue Church, 393 N.

Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website The change of oil in the car should be done regularly even if it’s something you are not looking forward to spend money on. Why?First of all, the regular oil change also establishes a benchmark of when your car’s maintenance needs to be met. For instance, every third oil change can be the point at which the tires need to be rotated. Also, your recognition of what fluids had to be added may serve as the first warning sign that one of the systems is leaking.It also gives a professional an opportunity to easily look for undercar problems. These would include torn CV boots, broken exhaust parts, or problems with the transmission or differential. Anything that’s broken, loose or excessively worn is in clear sight. This idea of the lube tech or service facility disclosing legitimate problems can be only beneficial.If you are looking for a local professional for your car care needs you may want to consider the staff at J.K.

WhatsApp Twitter AN UNNAMED group has claimed responsibility for breaching security at Shannon airport last week and damaging an aircraft used by US military personnel.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Operated by Omni Air International – which has a contract to transport US Air Mobility Command personnel – the plane was sprayed with the words “US troops out” after a security fence walling a disused runway was breached, the Clare Herald reports. It is believed one of the plane’s hydraulic pipes was severed in the incident.Yesterday, however, the monthly bulletin of the Galway Alliance Against War reproduced the content of a “handwritten communication we received from one of the members of the peace team that sabotaged a US troop transporter at Shannon warport”.The alliance claimed to have verified that the person who sent the letter participated in the action.The letter stated: “It was appropriate to carry out this peace action in Christmas week, when the media and politicians’ speeches, the world over, are full of hypocritical Christian cant about peace, while they support and even profit from wars in far-off lands.” It outlined how the unnamed group was dropped off at a perimeter fence at “Shannon’s warport” and then cut through two fences to enter the airfield.It said those involved made their way towards the target aircraft under cover of darkness.It is understood a Garda investigation was continuing.

Austin Jewish Academy(AUSTIN, Texas) — An amazing 13-year-old student from Texas is doing her best to make sure every shelter dog in her area is not only adopted, but rescued by the right person or family.Aiden Horwitz, an eighth-grade student at Austin Jewish Academy, came up with “Dog Do or Dog Don’t” to help others avoid pain she suffered years ago.This brilliant young woman from Austin got her first dog, Roscoe, when she was just 5 years old, but her mother was allergic and they had to give the dog to a family friend.“It was terrible having to give him to another family,” she told ABC News. “But I didn’t want to put him back in the shelter, either.”After trying again later, the Horwitz family now has three lucky pups and couldn’t be happier.But some families that adopt a puppy that isn’t the right fit aren’t as lucky as the Horwitz’s. They end up returning the dog to the shelter — not because they don’t love their furry friend, but because, among other reasons, they can’t afford to keep them or can’t properly take care of the animal.That’s where her website comes in. You answer 13 simple questions, like the size of your home, your schedule and more, to make sure you match up with the dog that is right for you.This revolutionary idea sprang out of Austin Jewish Academy’s passion project program for eighth graders, during which they spend the better part of the year working on something they feel strongly about.“I discovered one of the main reasons why dogs are in shelters is that people get the wrong kind of dog for them and family,” she said. “Through the survey, you’d be surprised what kinds of dogs fit into certain categories.”As a partner for the project, Horwitz chose Austin Pets Alive, specifically one dog, Royce.A deaf pit bull, Royce is a lab mix, and Horwitz thinks people just don’t understand how sweet the pup is and how easily he could fit into a family. Royce has become kind of a mascot for the program and the student hopes to not just get him adopted, but hundreds of others, too.She’s been contacted by other local shelters and even Pet Finder to expand the survey and the program possibly outside of Austin.“It’s been amazing to sit back and watch her follow her passion,” said Heather Kantrowitz, Aiden’s teacher and mentor for the project. “There was no doubt in my mind she could do this and my main take away is seeing how committed she’s been to seeing this idea through.”Kantrowitz said Aiden’s spent the weekends driving to other areas and shelters with Royce to spread the word about these lovable, adoptable pups.Another teacher at the school, Kathy Rosenmann, said all the projects in the program are about making the world a better place.“We have one student who is very passionate about saving the coral reefs,” she said. “Another student created a video editing business and all the money earned is donated to take professional pictures of kids who are terminally ill and gives them to the family. The results have been inspiring.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Washington County Sheriffs Office(TONTITOWN, Ark.) — An intense shootout between a sheriff’s deputy and a suspect in Arkansas was caught on video.Corporal Brett Thompson attempted to stop the driver of a green Saturn for a traffic violation on Nov. 11 near Tontitown, Arkansas, but the driver refused to pull over, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.In dashcam footage released by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio, is seen eventually pulling over, leaning out of his car and firing his gun directly at the officer’s vehicle parked behind him. The video then shows Cobos-Cenobio leaving his car and continuing to shoot while approaching the deputy’s vehicle. The sheriff’s office said Cobos-Cenobio and Thompson exchanged gunfire for 53 seconds before Cobos-Cenobio drove away, dropping off a female passenger a short distance away who was also in the vehicle. The sheriff’s office said the woman had wanted to leave the vehicle during the incident, and was not charged with any crimes. An alert was issued for Cobos-Cenobio and his vehicle. He was spotted by officers with the Springdale Police Department, after which Cobos-Cenobio exchanged gunfire with them while officers tried to stop the vehicle, according to authorities.The chase continued into Fayetteville, Arkansas, with officers from the Fayetteville Police Department and Arkansas State Police assisting. The suspect eventually returned to Springdale, where he stopped and surrendered, according to Springdale Police. Cobos-Cenobio suffered a “wound to the left arm/shoulder,” according to the sheriff’s office. He was treated at Northwest Medical Center and released into police custody.The sheriff’s office also released video of Thompson’s vehicle following the incident showing numerous bullet holes in the vehicle and the windshield as well as shattered windows.Cobos-Cenobio was charged with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terroristic act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, and was being held on $500,000 bond, Kelly Cantrell, a spokesperson for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC News.He is scheduled to be arraigned at the Washington County Detention Center on Dec. 10, according to the Washington County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.The sheriff’s office said no officers or deputies were injured, and that state police were investigating.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
