The conversion price is 23.75 Brazilian reales (£9) per share and the bonds have an annual yield of 6.75 per cent in dollars until converted. The bonds will bolster Santander’s capital by about 25 basis points when converted. Analysts have said the Spanish bank may need to raise capital to boost its balance sheet after a string of deals this year and in the face of tougher new capital rules.“This deal makes sense for Santander since its latest buys have eaten into capital, but considering the benefit is still three years away, it looks like they also wanted funds to keep expanding in Brazil,” said Nuria Alvarez, analyst at Rent Four.Qatar bought a £1.75bn stake Barclays in 2008 when the bank was seeking to avoid a taxpayer bailout. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share Monday 18 October 2010 8:19 pm Read This NextThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Image source: Getty Images The stock market crash has seen the FTSE 250 fall by 35%. It’s been painful for investors and many FTSE 250 shares are trading at all-time lows.However, I think it’s worth remembering the UK’s second index has beaten the FTSE 100 by 45% over the last 10 years. I’m pretty sure that last month’s crash has created some bargain opportunities for long-term investors. Today, I want to share three of my top tips with you.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…Focus on the futureEmerging markets often have great growth opportunities, but there can be pitfalls too. In my experience, it’s hard for private investors to do well in these remote markets. Although I’m a dedicated DIY investor, I think this is an area best left to the experts.One of my preferred companies in this sector is emerging markets debt specialist Ashmore Group (LSE: ASHM). This FTSE 250 share has fallen by 40% so far this year. But I think this sell-off is likely to be a great long-term buying opportunity.Ashmore is run by founder Mark Coombs, who still owns about 35% of the business. So his interests are well aligned with private investors. The group has an outstanding record of profitability and generated an operating profit margin of 64% last year.The group has plenty of cash and has never cut its dividend since listing in 2006. At current levels, the shares offer a forecast yield of 5.5%. I don’t expect Coombs to cut the dividend. I also believe the shares — on just 11 times forecast earnings — are very cheap at this level.I’d buy this FTSE 250 share for incomeMy next pick is Telecom Plus (LSE: TEP). This group sells electricity, gas, mobile and broadband to customers under the Utility Warehouse banner. But, unlike regular utilities, Telecom Plus isn’t an energy supplier, but a reseller.This business model has proved pretty successful over the years. And although new customer recruitment — which is usually done by word-of-mouth — is likely to slow during as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, I think the firm’s profits (and dividend) should be fairly stable.The market seems to agree — the Telecom Plus share price has only fallen by 17% this year, compared to a FTSE 250 fall of 34%.I see this share as a good long-term buy for income. Telecom Plus generates plenty of cash and I think the current 4.5% yield will be safe. I’d be a buyer at this level.This FTSE 250 stock could doubleMy last pick might seem risky, but hear me out. Kingfisher (LSE: KGF) owns B&Q and similar chains in France and Eastern Europe. The group also owns Screwfix, which has grown very strongly over the last few years.Unlike some retailers, Kingfisher has come into this crisis with almost no debt and strong free cash flow. This has left the group in a much better state to survive the coronavirus pandemic than some other retailers.A second attraction is that, so far, the group’s stores have been classified as essential businesses and allowed to remain open. So, although trading is likely to be down, Kingfisher is still generating revenue.New chief executive Thierry Garnier is determined to return the business to growth. I think he’ll succeed. And with this FTSE 250 share trading on just 7 times forecast earnings, I think there’s plenty of upside potential for patient buyers.last_img read more

Easton: Two dead, one hospitalized following fire

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK [Diocese of Easton] Editor’s note: This story was updated at 7:20 p.m. on Nov. 26 to report the death of the Rev. David Dingwall, according to local news report. More information is now available in a more recent story here, which was posted mid-afternoon Nov. 27. The Rev. David Dingwall, rector of St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Ocean City, Maryland, has died following a Nov. 26 fire at the church, according to local news reports.The fire occurred in the rear office area of the church, located on North Baltimore Avenue, when a person on fire entered the Shepherd’s Crook ministry offices, according to the diocese’s website.According to local news reports, he is believed to be the other person who died. A third person remains hospitalized.“Volunteers and witnesses say that the man, engulfed in flames, possibly ran into the church for help, and set draperies inside the building alight,” reported WJLA. “Fire officials still do not have an exact cause for the fire.“After searching through the charred wreckage, firefighters discovered the man’s body in the section of the church that provides food and other services to the homeless.”Another local news outlet, WMDT, reported that an adult female victim was transported to John’s Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, while an adult male was taken to Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, Maryland, in critical condition.Dingwall began his ministry at St. Paul’s-by-the-Sea in 2005, according to the parish’s website. November 26, 2013 at 9:57 pm So sorry for this tragedy in this National Thanksgiving week. Our thoughts and prayers for the church; for the eternal repose of the soul of Father David, and for healing and recovery of those who survived. Praying also for the Diocese of Easton. An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Curate Diocese of Nebraska Michael Reddig says: November 26, 2013 at 11:42 pm David was a fine friend and a valued colleague when I was in the diocese of Easton…..his delivery of the gospel Good News was done in remarkably fresh, bold, and meaningful ways….and he touched me and many other people. I’m sure he will be greatly missed in Ocean City and the Diocese of Easton. May his soul rest in peace. Mike Reddig, San Francisco Comments are closed.

Prayers urged for Yemen peace talks

first_imgPrayers urged for Yemen peace talks By Gavin DrakePosted Dec 14, 2015 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Anglican Communion News Service] U.N.-led peace talks between the warring parties in Yemen get underway Dec. 15 and the Archdeacon in the Gulf, the Venerable Bill Schwartz, has called for prayers that the talks will lead to a “real resolution and reconciliation” resulting in a “truly inclusive” reconstruction in the country.There had been various violent incidents in the country for a number of years but the current civil war began in March and involves separatists from the south of the country, a Houthi-group from the north with affinity to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, and forces loyal to the current President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.This has been compounded by airstrikes from a Saudi Arabian-led coalition using intelligence and logistical support from the USA, who have also conducted drone strikes. There have also been attacks by Islamist groups Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and Daesh.The Saudi-led coalition is enforcing an air and naval blockade of the country. Aid supplies are being allowed through but it is not enough to prevent eight million Yemenis facing severe food insecurity.This week, the United Nations announced that its World Food Programme (WFP) had managed to overcome fighting, airstrikes and checkpoints to deliver life-saving aid to the central city of Taiz, which had been under a virtual siege. The convoy of aid has delivered “enough food for nearly 145,000 people for a month,” the U.N. said.The food was delivered to the city’s Salah and al-Qahira districts in two convoys of 31 trucks; a third convoy is currently making its way to the Mudhafar district.“Taiz is one of 10 governorates out of 22 that are in the grip of severe food insecurity at ‘Emergency’ level – one step below famine,” the UN said this week. “At least one in five households in the area does not have enough food for a healthy life, has lost its livelihood and faces life-threatening rates of acute malnutrition.”The WFP’s Yemen director, Ms Purnima Kashyap, said that “we are overcoming enormous access challenges to deliver much-needed assistance into the city, where the humanitarian situation has deteriorated over the past couple of months.“WFP needs freedom and safety of movement inside the country to reach as many people as possible with food assistance before they fall deeper into hunger.”There is now hope for progress after the UN Special Envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, announced that the warring parties had agreed to a ceasefire and peace talks, which will begin in Geneva, Switzerland, on Dec. 15, with the aim of “establishing a permanent and comprehensive ceasefire.”“We strongly believe that the only way to end the suffering of the Yemeni people and to rebuild confidence, trust, and mutual respect is through peaceful and inclusive dialogue,” Ahmed said.Speaking to reporters in Geneva, he said that he was “very optimistic” of the parties reaching a permanent ceasefire, adding: “I call upon the parties to engage in good faith in search of a durable political solution for Yemen which meets the legitimate aspirations of Yemeni people for peace, stability, and prosperity.”Such an agreement would require “a lot of courage, personal sacrifice and tenacity,” he said.The Government of Yemen, the Houthis and other relevant parties have all committed to participate in the talks. Ahmed will chair the dialogue which will include eight negotiators and four advisers for each delegation.The U.N. said that the parties had been strongly encouraged “to work on confidence building measures, including implementing a ceasefire, releasing prisoners, and facilitating the delivery of humanitarian supplies that would constitute positive steps in the efforts to lessen tensions and ease the path to a peaceful settlement to the conflict in Yemen.”Responding to news of the talks, Schwartz, an Episcopal Church missionary, told ACNS that he was encouraged that the dialogue would be accompanied by a ceasefire, but added: “In the past neither side has been particularly successful in maintaining a cease-fire.Christ Church, Aden. Photo: Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf“Please pray for a will that the talks could accomplish a level of agreement between the main warring factions,” he said. “Please also pray that the third factor in the fighting will also be figured into the attempt to find a way forward.“There is no doubt that the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh is involved in the unrest, and any plan for a cease-fire will not succeed unless his influence is countered in some way.“Also pray that there is more than a cease-fire accomplished. There will be no real resolution and reconciliation without a clear plan for reconstruction of the country which is truly inclusive among the different factions.”Before the talks were announced, the Archdeacon supplied an update on the situation in Yemen for the Jerusalem and Middle East Christian Association.“The Anglican ministry in Aden has survived the war,” he said. “We are extremely grateful to God’s mercy that none of our staff were injured in the collateral damage of the fighting, and the continuing menace of mines that are still exploding around the city.“We took the decision to close [Christ Church] and [its Ras Morbat] clinic when the fighting got serious, aware that it would be dangerous for people to gather at the church property.“There were faithful Yemeni staff on site all the time, and there were multiple instances where they were able to turn away looters. Unfortunately, the buildings suffered extensive damage from nearby explosions; virtually all of the windows and doors were blown out. The roofs of two of the buildings were seriously damaged as well. . .Damage at Christ Church, Aden. Photo: Jerusalem and Middle East Christian Association“Even during the fighting, our medical staff were visited in their homes by patients familiar with the clinic, and some who were injured in the fighting.“As soon as the shooting and bombing in Aden stopped in August our able and faithful administrator got busy right away repairing doors and windows for the clinic section of the property. The reception and examination areas were re-opened in mid-September. We were able to repair the rest of the medical wing and resumed performing eye surgeries in mid-October. Aside from our traditional patient load our staff has now begun treating many injured in the fighting.“As far as we can determine ours is the only eye clinic functioning in Aden at present. Even [Médecins Sans Frontières‎] is referring all eye injuries to our clinic.Water supply has been restored and electricity is available, though there are frequent daily power cuts. Thankfully, the generator continues to function well and the doctors are able to continue even when power fails.”He explained that the parish ministry had “always necessarily focused on expatriates living in Aden” and until the ex-pat presence returned “we are not in any rush to re-start parish ministry.”“Right now, extremist groups are assassinating foreigners, even Muslims from the Gulf countries who have come with the Red Crescent Society to provide food and medical care for Yemenis. It looks like there will be some delay before aid and development NGO staff will be able to return to the city. However, it is our hope that we will be able to establish a clergy couple in Aden as soon as it is safe for them to be there.“Those who come to work with NGOs to assist in rebuilding the country will need ministry and pastoral care for sure.”He said that a number of Roman Catholic church properties had been severely damaged. “A residential building in one of their churches was damaged by shelling. Two properties were subsequently vandalized and one of those is burned out with the roof and interior destroyed,” he said. “We give thanks than none of the Catholic clergy or sisters have been injured. There is continued prayer and sacramental ministry among the staff, but not at the church compounds.”On Wednesday, an office at the already-badly damaged Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in Mualla was attacked and bombed by extremists. Nobody was hurt in the incident. “We heard a strong explosion which sent a big plume of smoke into the air and afterward saw that the building was completely destroyed,” an eyewitness told Reuters.

None of that is unusual nowadays, of course.Gavin has other innovative ideas though. For 25p, he will send you a text message from the summit of Mount Everest, assuming he makes it that far. Unfortunately, this service in itself doesn’t generate funds for the charity: the SMS company is operating the service at cost.

It is so urgent now to launch a struggle on a global scale.Every progressive country, every progressive movement and every progressive idea is under fierce attack by a dying capitalist establishment that wants to turn back any gains made by popular movements throughout the world.On behalf of the Boricua people, I also want to thank you for including Puerto Rico on the agenda.What are the points we want to get across?The current debt crisis is the result of a century of colonialist policies that were tailored to benefit U.S. economic interests.The effects of Hurricane María — both for the U.S. and for the people of Puerto Rico.What to do?Although the U.S. has a military presence in Puerto Rico, I would like to address the most urgent problems there right now.  Those are the developments around the debt crisis, particularly after Hurricane María.But let’s have some brief background before the hurricane.  (In Puerto Rico, time is referred to as before and after Hurricane María, which hit on Sept. 20, 2017.)There was already an unpayable, illegitimate public debt of $74 billion. This was the result of municipal bonds sold by the Puerto Rican government to finance governmental operations — not to develop the island’s economy; it also borrowed to pay interest.In 2016, under the Obama administration, the U.S. Congress passed the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act — Promesa — which created the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico. Better known as the Fiscal Control Board, it consists of seven members appointed by the U.S. president and one ex-officio member designated by the governor of Puerto Rico.Banks created the debtMany U.S. and international banks were involved in creating this debt. Santander Bank, in particular, shows perfectly the role of the banks in producing and increasing the debt.Two of the FCB members were not only executives of Santander Bank, but they had been presidents of Puerto Rico’s Government Development Bank — the entity that used to manage the government’s budget. These two men, Carlos M. García and José Ramón González, “built Santander Securities, the bank’s municipal bond business, which established itself as a leading bond underwriter coinciding with the growth in Puerto Rican public debt.“This business brought in substantial fee income for the bank. … GDB became increasingly reliant on questionable financial engineering techniques. … Santander helped the Commonwealth issue risky debt deals that relied on controversial features. These generated more fee income for Santander’s underwriting business.” I am quoting from an article posted at Hedge Clipper’s website: “How Santander’s Revolving Door with Puerto Rico’s Development Bank Exacerbated a Fiscal Catastrophe for the Puerto Rican People.”We have to remember that the economy has been based on manufacturing for U.S. companies.  Even though they paid the workers relatively well, the profits did not stay in Puerto Rico, did not help build infrastructure and did not help to develop the island’s economy.The taxes paid to the Puerto Rican government — by those who paid — were a mere 4 percent. Puerto Rico had been a tax-free haven for U.S. industries since its very beginning — first with sugar cane in agriculture, then with petrochemical processing, and after that, with pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and electronics.The FCB proposed austerity plans that included cuts in health care, the public university and 10 percent of public workers’ pensions; reduction of the workday; termination of Christmas bonuses; elimination of funding for the 78 municipalities; school closings; increased taxes; and privatization of the state energy industry and finance-healthy agencies like the State Insurance Fund Corporation.So while the majority of the Puerto Rican people were thrown into poverty, obscene amounts in the millions of dollars were being paid to the same FCB for consultants, subcontractors and others. Just as an example — because there are many at every level of the government, not only pertaining to the FCB — they contracted Natalie Jaresko, the board’s executive director, for $625,000 a year!Then came Hurricane Irma and two weeks later, on Sept. 20, came Hurricane María, destroying Culebra, Vieques and Puerto Rico.The destruction caused is only comparable to that caused by the San Ciriaco Hurricane in 1899, devastation that the U.S. used to change Puerto Rico’s economy by imposing the dollar and substituting the U.S. sugar industry for Puerto Rico’s exports of coffee and tobacco to Europe.Similarly, the collapse of the electrical system gave the U.S. the perfect excuse to accelerate their plans for privatization of this essential industry. The fact that electricity has not been re-established for almost half of the population more than 100 days since the hurricane is not accidental. The government hopes that people will get so desperate that they will accept  privatization of the utility — with its higher costs.The electricity sector alone has uncovered the deep corruption of the local government in conjunction with the federal government. One example is the contract made with the small, Montana-based Whitefish Company for $300 million to rebuild the electric power — a company with only two employees!FEMA and Army Corps are criminalNow, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is in charge of the restoration of electricity, but they are well-known for their slowness.Both the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s and the Army Corps’ actions in Puerto Rico have been criminal. After the hurricane, FEMA immediately took control of all the containers that arrived on the island with material aid and supplies — and would not distribute the goods. Both agencies’ slowness in assessing damages and ordering materials — from blue roof tarps to electrical poles — amount to genocidal acts against the Puerto Rican people.Four months after the storm, there are still destroyed houses in the rural areas and mountains with no blue tarps or electricity. The Army Corps has not even rebuilt one single bridge in Puerto Rico.The conditions post-María have caused a humanitarian crisis.  At least a quarter of a million Boricuas have migrated to the U.S. in desperation. More than 1,000 people have died and thousands are still homeless.  There is hunger. Communication and drinking water are still compromised. The country is paralyzed — particularly because of the lack of electricity. Thousands of small businesses have closed.While the U.S. government withholds crucial aid to the people, it prevents other countries from helping the island. The U.S. has prevented solidarity, stopping Cuba from sending a movable health unit with doctors, health care staff and electric workers; Venezuela from sending a ship with diesel; and Mexico from sending skilled electric workers. What the U.S. has imposed on Puerto Rico is a true blockade.What we are witnessing in Puerto Rico is not only the devastation by two hurricanes and the “failure” of reconstruction by both local and federal governments. It is the exposure of the catastrophe of colonial status that has finally reached a dead end.With no sovereignty, Puerto Rico cannot solve this crisis; it cannot develop the economy to benefit its people. This has become very clear.However, there is an important and very positive development in Puerto Rico. Thousands of community-based groupings have been forming all around the island.Initially, neighbors who didn’t even know each other started uniting to clear paths since there was absolutely no help from the outside — either from the local or federal governments. They started helping each other, gathering food and cooking for the community and planning actions. Now, many communities are organizing protests to demand electricity from the government.Many organizations that existed before are expanding to new areas beyond their barrios. They are looking for the establishment of agroecological cooperatives, for a sustainable economy, for solar energy and more.The fight for schoolsTeachers, parents, students and their communities have been holding constant demonstrations and actions to demand that their neighborhood schools be opened.  Secretary of Education Julia Keleher, who is from the U.S., was hired by the current government of Ricky Roselló, who is pro-statehood, for the purpose of privatizing public education.  She closed schools before the hurricane, and then prevented the opening of schools after María. Many families have migrated to the U.S. for this reason alone — so that their children could begin school.The UTIER, the union of electrical workers of Puerto Rico, worked as real heroes in the mountains to restore electricity.  The union has filed a suit against the Promesa law, based on its lack of constitutionality. The federal judge under the Promesa law heard the case a couple of days ago and the case is still pending.The pro-independence movement is beginning to actively look for ways to unite in order to start the process of decolonization.So while both the U.S. government and Puerto Rico’s subservient puppet are trying to take advantage of the post-María catastrophe to impose and deepen austerity measures against the people of Puerto Rico, there is a tide of mobilization from below that is beginning to challenge this dictatorial maneuver.How we can helpWhat can we do here? How can we help the people of Puerto Rico?Much has been said about the suffering and the need for aid and supplies to alleviate the horrendous conditions. But very little is said about the responsibility of the U.S. government towards the Boricua people.  The people would not be in this difficulty were it not for the straight jacket that is U.S. colonial rule.The Boricua people do not need charity. What they need is justice and solidarity. They need reparations from the United States for more than a century of colonization.For the invasion in 1898 and the destruction of our economy.For the repression and killing of independentistas.For the imposition of a Gag Law [Ley de La Mordaza] forbidding Puerto Ricans to display our own flag.For the forced sterilization of more than 35 percent of women between the 1970s and 1980s.For the use of our fertile land for military purposes.For the contamination of land, air and water by the military and the petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals industries.For the Jones Act, which prohibits Puerto Rico from having its own shipping industry and instead is forced to use U.S. shipping, the most expensive in the world. This makes everything from food to clothing to cars at least 20 percent more expensive.For imposing U.S. citizenship upon us.The people in the United States must expose the crimes the U.S. daily commits everywhere in the world.Regarding Puerto Rico, people in the U.S. must demand:U.S. out of Puerto Rico!End the Promesa law and its Fiscal Control Board!Repeal the Jones Act!End the blockade of Puerto Rico!Reparations now!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
