Don’t lose your Stocks & Shares ISA allowance in the stock market crash!

first_imgDon’t lose your Stocks & Shares ISA allowance in the stock market crash! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. 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. There’s a lot going on right now, as the coronavirus threatens businesses and incomes, and investors panic in the stock market crash. The danger is, amid all the confusion, many people will overlook their annual Stocks and Shares ISA and lose it for good.Time is short. The deadline for using your £20,000 ISA allowance is looming fast, at midnight on 5 April. Every year, thousands leave it until the last minute. But I wouldn’t recommend doing that this time round.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…The ISA deadline falls on a Sunday this year, which always muddies things. That’s because many wealth platforms are already warning phone lines are blocked as the stock market crash triggers a rush of buyers and sellers. Leave it too late and there’s a danger you’ll fluff it, losing your Stocks and Shares ISA allowance by default.Don’t squander your Stocks and Shares ISASome may even be thinking about giving it a miss this year. Who wants to invest in the middle of a stock market crash anyway? Here at the Fool, we politely reject that line of thinking. We believe a crash is actually the best time to buy shares, rather than the worst.Shopping for shares in a bear market like this one is a bit like hitting the sales. Almost everything is cheaper than before and shoppers can take their pick. There are bargains everywhere you look.As with every sale, you should look to buy stocks you really want rather than grabbing anything that looks cheap right now. That means high-quality businesses with loyal customers, strong cash flows, low debt, sustainable dividends, and solid balance sheets.Stock market crash opportunityIf you can slip a spread of FTSE 100 blue-chips into your Stocks and Shares ISA before the deadline, you’ll be perfectly placed for the recovery when it comes. Treat anything you buy as a long-term investment rather than a short-term trade. Aim to buy companies you would be happy to hold forever. That’s investment legend Warren Buffett’s favourite holding period or, failing that, at least five or 10 years.The ISA allowance is a hugely generous £20,000. Obviously, most people can’t afford to invest that much each year (including me). You should try to invest the maximum you can afford, even if that’s just £1k or £2k, to build wealth for your future.Some will be reluctant to pay in a large single lump sum right now, because there’s always the danger that the stock market crash could have further to run. If you’re in that position, you should still secure your Stocks and Shares ISA allowance by the deadline, transferring the funds onto your chosen platform via debit card. You can then drip-feed money into the market afterwards, little by little, taking advantage of any dips to pick up more cheap shares.Don’t hang around though.

Disillusioned Anglican teens in Zambia set up their own ‘church’

first_imgDisillusioned Anglican teens in Zambia set up their own ‘church’ Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Teenagers from the Diocese of Lusaka discuss how to make church more relevant to them and their peers. Photo: CPCA[Anglican Communion News Service] Disillusioned teenagers in the Zambian Diocese of Lusaka have decided to run their own church services after feeling disconnected from adult-led ones.According to the Rev. Robert Sihubwa who oversees the national church’s youth ministry, the teens said neither the sermons, hymns, nor the leadership were connecting with them.Sihubwa explained, “One girl said the sermons preached in church focus largely on old people. She said, ‘You always talk about family, money, problems in the world, changing the world, etc. Our concern is about dressing, music, fashion, girl and boyfriends, whether it is right to kiss or not, and school.’“According to the youths, such concerns never get addressed [in regular services], apart from general condemnation for fashions and music.”Sihubwa said that church leaders also came under fire, with one teen saying, “The bishop’s visitation to parishes only connects with the teenagers during the confirmation service. It is rare that bishops will make a specific visit to teenagers in a parish; it is as if we don’t exist.”The comments were made at the diocese’s first ever camp for teenagers, which was an initiative that had come from the young people themselves.“The camp was full of life, singing, jokes and dancing into the night, with most of the young people being forced to [go to] sleep,” said Sihubwa. “Their energy was amazing as they woke up early in the morning at 0600 hrs for devotions and to learn how to have Morning Prayer.”The program was largely directed by teenagers, taking the roles of worship leaders, ushers, intercessors, sports coordinators, catering helpers, and some even acted as counselors to their friends.The call for greater recognition for teenagers in church life came out of group discussions where youngsters were invited to say how they believed church could be improved.“After the discussion, a consensus was reached that we start Teen Fellowships that would meet on Saturdays or during the week to address the issues raised,” said Sihubwa. “When we returned [home], the teenagers in my parish asked to start a Teen Church, at least once a month, parallel to the main service.”Despite the frustration, Lusaka diocese is one of those in the Anglican Province of Central Africa that does have youth strategies as part of it future plans. One example of how that strategy is having an impact is the establishment of the first ever Youth and Children’s Council, set up by provincial youth following their Youth and Children’s Council meeting.[Editor’s note: This story is from material in the latest edition of Witness6.7, the newsletter of the Anglican Communion’s Anglican Witness – Evangelism and Church Growth Initiative.

El Rdo. Brandon Mauai, diácono de Dakota del Norte y ex miembro del Consejo, ayuda en el oficio. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Fort Worth, Texas] El Consejo Ejecutivo quedó impuesto, en su reunión del 26 al 28 de febrero, que la forma, el alcance y la estructura de la promesa de la Iglesia Episcopal de abordar el racismo y la práctica de la reconciliación y de convertirse en una Iglesia de evangelizadores ha comenzado a materializarse. Y el Consejo ya ha puesto en su sitio algunas piezas de esa importante obra.Al hacer esto, el Consejo comenzó por implementar el llamado a la acción que resonó en la Convención General el verano pasado. Durante la reunión, los miembros del Consejo “se concentraron fundamentalmente en complementar la manera en que nosotros como comunidad denominacional emprenderemos la obra de la evangelización y la reconciliación racial”, dijo el obispo primado Michael Curry durante una conferencia de prensa luego de terminada la reunión, añadiendo que el Consejo abrazó jubilosamente esa tarea.En julio pasado, la Convención General adoptó el presupuesto trienal 2016-2018 que incluía $3 millones para comenzar nuevas congregaciones con énfasis en ayudar a las poblaciones, entre ellas a las comunidades hispanas; $2,8 millones para la obra de evangelización y una nueva e importante iniciativa de $2 millones para la justicia y reconciliación raciales.“La Iglesia Episcopal, reunida en una comunidad de gobierno, fue llevada a considerar y a abrazar una forma diferente de vocación en la vida de la Iglesia Episcopal, y eso es lo que estamos haciendo”, dijo la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados y vicepresidente del Consejo, refiriéndose a las decisiones de la Convención General durante sus palabras de clausura. Ahora el Consejo está “trabajando arduamente para ofrecerle una infraestructura” a la decisión de la Convención de que la Iglesia Episcopal tiene “una vocación a la evangelización, la reconciliación y la plantación de iglesias”.El Consejo, dijo ella, está contemplando “la manera en que viviremos como Iglesia esta nueva manifestación de una vocación corporativa”.Resultó claro durante el curso de la reunión que si bien los empeños en pro de la justicia y la reconciliación raciales y la evangelización podrían constituir renglones separados en el presupuesto trienal, están todos estrechamente unidos cuando se trata de llegar a un “mundo que clama por las buenas nuevas de un Dios que se dedica a amar y bendecir y restaurar a las personas y los sistemas quebrantados del mundo”, como la Rda. Canóniga Stephanie Spellers lo describió en su sermón del 28 de febrero durante la eucaristía del Consejo.Spellers, canóniga del Obispo Primado para la evangelización y la reconciliación racial, bosquejó los planes emergentes que incluyen una “cumbre de la evangelización”, que sería el primer paso en la creación de una red de evangelizadores a través de la Iglesia. Se han planeado iniciativas en evangelización digital, entre ellas el hallar “modos de crear vínculos significativos con personas en la Internet y ser receptivos a sus profundos anhelos e interrogantes” y el adiestrar a los episcopales a utilizar las redes sociales para la evangelización. Los planes contemplan una experimentación con resurgimientos episcopales que, en parte, “adiestrarían a equipos locales para practicar la evangelización relacional y la atenta escucha con sus vecinos, compañeros de escuela, amigos y compañeros de trabajo”, dijo ella.Antes de volver a sesionar después del almuerzo del 28 de febrero, los miembros del Consejo Ejecutivo grabaron un vídeo de la felicitación de cumpleaños de Victoria Logue, miembro del Consejo y esposa del Rdo. Frank Logue. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSEl Consejo también quedó impuesto de que Curry, Jennings, los vicepresidentes de la Cámara de Obispos y de la Cámara de Diputados, varios miembros del personal y otros líderes de la Iglesia, se habían reunido anteriormente este mes para comenzar a crear un plan para la reconciliación racial que se arraigará en escuchar. “Toda una Iglesia dedicada a decir la verdad y a compartir historias, escuchando a diversos vecinos y participando en la transformación mutua” es como lo describió Spellers.Y el Consejo ayudó a poner en marcha planes para expandir los empeños de la Iglesia en la plantación de iglesias y el desarrollo de nuevos medios de edificar y formar comunidades de fe.El Consejo aprobó un presupuesto para 2016 que incluyó asignaciones para muchas de las nuevas iniciativas. Ese presupuesto debe aparecer pronto aquí.“Abarcamos una sorprendente cantidad de terreno y quedamos informados [de la existencia] de la amplia variedad de ministerios que tenemos ante nosotros”, dijo la Rda. Susan Snook, presidenta del comité sobre misión y ministerio locales, durante su informe al pleno el 28 de febrero. “Es un buen momento de ser episcopal y es un buen momento para ser parte del Movimiento de Jesús”.Episcopal News Service se propone una cobertura adicional de los detalles que surjan de estos empeños en los próximos días.En otras decisiones, el Consejo:Eligió a sus representantes ante la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América (IELA) y ante la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá. Steven Nishibayashi de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles será el representante del Consejo ante el Consejo de la Iglesia de la IELA. Noreen Duncan, de la Diócesis de Nueva Jersey, representará al Consejo ante el Consejo del Sínodo General de la Iglesia [Anglicana] del Canadá. En la actualidad, el Rdo. Stephen Herr, pastor de la iglesia evangélica luterana de Cristo [Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church] en Gettysburg, Pensilvania, es el enlace de la IELA ante el Consejo Ejecutivo, y el Muy Rdo. Peter Wall, deán de la iglesia catedral de Cristo [Christ’s Church Cathedral] en Hamilton, Ontario, representa a la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá.

El presupuesto denominacional ya ofrece un espacio de culto de 3.000 asientos expandible a 5.000 en el Centro de Convenciones de Austin. Sin embargo, al Consejo le dijeron que la diócesis percibe una mayor oportunidad de evangelización si celebra la eucaristía en el Centro Palmer, aproximadamente a una milla de distancia. Jennings, miembro del comité de planificación y disposiciones, dijo que la diócesis espera que entre 5.000 y 6.000 miembros de la diócesis asistan a la eucaristía. Ese número se sumaría al gran número de asistentes a la Convención que normalmente participa de la eucaristía diaria. “Resultaba muy claro que el presupuesto no podría estirarse para darle cabida a esto y las personas de esa diócesis están dispuestas a buscar los fondos para pagar por eso”, dijo ella. El Rdo. Stan Runnels, miembro del Consejo de la Diócesis de Misurí Occidental, fue el único que votó en contra de la autorización. Él le dijo al Consejo, antes de la votación a viva voz, que convenir en recaudar este dinero era “echarle gasolina al fuego” que arde en algunas partes de la Iglesia respecto a si la Convención General debe reunirse en una diócesis que no pague la totalidad de su solicitud al presupuesto denominacional. La Iglesia Episcopal le pide actualmente a las diócesis que contribuyan al presupuesto denominacional con el 18 por ciento de sus ingresos anuales. Esto se reducirá a 16,5 por ciento para el presupuesto de 2017 y al 15 por ciento en 2018. La contribución [diocesana] de cada año en el presupuesto trienal se basa en el ingreso de la diócesis de dos años antes, menos $150.000. Jennings le dijo al Consejo que la Diócesis de Texas contribuye actualmente con un 13,3 por ciento de sus ingresos. En 2013, había prometido contribuir con el 6,7 por ciento ($463,959 de $7.094.500 su ingreso elegible entonces). La fecha tope para reservar el Centro Palmer es el 25 de marzo, según la resolución aprobada por el Consejo, y los compromisos firmados exigen que el monto total debe recibirse antes de firmar el contrato.Un resumen de las resoluciones aprobadas por el Consejo durante la reunión se encuentra aquí.La cobertura previa hecha por ENS de la reunión de Fort Worth puede verse aquí.El Consejo se vuelve a reunir del 8 al 10 de junio en el Hotel y Centro de Conferencias Oak Ridge en Chaska, Minnesota, al suroeste de Minneapolis.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, más el Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio]. Además, el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados, el Secretario, el Director de Operaciones, el Tesorero y el Director de Finanzas tienen asiento y voz, pero no voto. Canon I.4(1).– La Rda.

College to engage students in business-related workshop series

by ,

first_imgThe Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative at Saint Mary’s will host a six-week series titled “Entre. Lead. Her.,” designed to help students cultivate a personal and professional brand, develop leadership skills and learn innovative strategies towards success. Running from Jan. 25, this program will feature guest speakers and interactive workshops addressing topics such as team building, pitch presentation, the benefits of podcasting, stress reduction, positive social impact and the importance of empathy in the business world. Joan McClendon, the current director of The Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI) said she initially became involved as a community member participating in the organization’s 2010 pilot program. “I came in [to the WEI] and participated in a leadership style session, and it changed my life because it made me feel as a woman that I had purpose and I had meaning,” McClendon said. “We don’t always have these opportunities to meet with other women to explore who we truly are. That session really transformed me, and I am still friends with the women that I’ve connected with through the WEI.” Since her first experience seven years ago with the WEI, McClendon said her exploration of leadership has continued through her time spent as the associate director, and now project director of the WEI. As director, McClendon is responsible for scheduling events, such as the upcoming workshop series, that will help women in the Saint Mary’s and South Bend community navigate leadership roles in their personal and professional lives. “My passion is to bring the community of women into Saint Mary’s College and have them experience the same thing I’ve come to learn: that we are a college of amazing and incredible women,” McClendon said. Though the WEI is open to all Saint Mary’s students and communities outside of the college, McClendon said most of the individuals involved are graduates of SPARK, a Saint Mary’s program providing that assists women who earn low wages in starting their own businesses. “Entre. Lead. Her.” will offer a chance for graduates and others to scale up their businesses and continue building a brand, McClendon said. “Part of the series will work on creating and refining a pitch, a skill that I think all the women at Saint Mary’s College could benefit from learning,” McClendon said. “These sessions are not your typical business classes, but they will provide you with the things that are going to give you an edge in your personal life and in your business.”In order to make the upcoming series more accessible, McClendon said the WEI has made admission free for students and continues to offer availability to the general public. She said attendance will be capped at 40 to keep sessions personal and thorough. McClendon said she hopes each participant will walk away from this experience with a better understanding of her leadership style and the process of creating a business, for they will have had the opportunity to grow personally.“That’s why we start these sessions by sharing Sr. Madeleva Wolff’s words on discovery,” McClendon said. “‘We promise you discovery: the discovery of yourselves, the discovery of the universe, and your place in it.’”Tags: discovery, Entre.

Indonesia, Singapore key markets for venture capital fundraising: Report

by ,

first_img“This is simply because most of the capital committed by investors to VCs in the first quarter was actually solicited before the region began to tighten social-distancing measures in April,” he said.BRI Ventures was recorded as the top fund-raiser firm in Indonesia with $136 million, followed by OCBC Ventura NISP and Indogen Capital at $15 million and $10 million, respectively. Meanwhile, Singapore-based B Capital raised $600 million, Vickers Venture Partners raised $200 million and Credence Partners at $50 million.Southeast Asia-focused VCs were armed with committed capital of around $5.8 billion, based on venture funds that reached a final close in the last four quarters, according to the report, titled “Southeast Asia’s VC Fund: Q1 2020 Review”.Beyond fund closings, 53 VC firms were in the market to raise $8.4 billion for Southeast Asia-focused funds, of which around 30 percent has been secured. Indonesia and Singapore currently dominate the venture capital (VC) fundraising in Southeast Asia, despite a slower pace of capital raising in the first quarter this year.Indonesia raised US$161 million in the first quarter while Singapore leads with $865 million over the same period, according to a recent report by Deal Street Asia. No closes were recorded by VC funds in Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand or Vietnam.Deal Street Asia ASEAN market research head Andi Haswidi in a statement on Tuesday said that the first-quarter fundraising performance did not reflect the true impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The SEA-focused VC funds accumulated $1.3 billion in additional dry powder in the first three months this year, ending a year-long streak of quarter-on-quarter growth.Data from the report also show that capital committed for interim and final fund closes fell 47 percent during the period from Q4 of 2019. However, this figure was still more than triple the value recorded in the same period last year.Andi went on to say that the outlook for VC raising in the region is expected to deteriorate in the coming months as the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic started to affect the fundraising process.“We believe fundraising is going to be more challenging in the second quarter onward as investors’ risk appetites shrink,” he said. “Fund managers are also careful about deploying their dry powder, which could weigh on tech startup valuations despite investors’ loaded war chests.”Topics :last_img read more
