I’d ignore the Cineworld share price and buy this US stock for my ISA instead As good as this performance is for those who had the courage to invest, I’m more likely to buy a related stock from the US market. Before revealing its identity, I’ll briefly recap on why I’m not tempted by Cineworld. 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…Cineworld share price: too much too soon?First and foremost, the company remains heavily indebted and dependent on fresh liquidity to keep going. It’s somewhat inevitable that many traders are betting the Cineworld share price will fall in the months ahead. Second, the movie schedule continues to be impacted by the pandemic. Since studios need to be confident that they can make a decent return on their money, I wouldn’t be shocked if more delays were announced.Third, there’s no guarantee moviegoers will rush back when cinemas reopen. This may be due to an ongoing psychological wound left by coronavirus or the simple desire to be outdoors when good weather arrives.To be fair, Cineworld has some plus points too. Consumers are craving a return to much-loved activities and it could benefit even more from people being unable to go on holiday for much of 2021.  As an investor, however, I need to be sure that my money goes into high-quality, multiple-product companies more likely to survive the coronavirus storm. This brings me to a far less risky alternative in the entertainment space.  This US stock looks like a better betAt £333bn, US behemoth Disney (NYSE: DIS) towers above Cineworld in size. But it’s not just its sheer market clout that makes this a more defensive pick. Disney owns some of the biggest brands/franchises going, including Star Wars and Marvel as well as companies such as Pixar. It has theme parks, cruise liners and exposure to sports via ESPN. It earns stacks of cash from merchandising every year. I’d say Cineworld needs Disney a whole lot more than Disney needs Cineworld. The US giant can easily distribute its own films and TV shows via its streaming service. Boosted by people being forced to stay indoors due to lockdowns, it now has 95 million subscribers to Disney+. It expects up to 260 million by 2024.No sure thingNaturally, there are still challenges ahead. Disneyland and co remain closed due to the coronavirus. Even once they are permitted to open, restrictions on the number of visitors are possible. If not, social distancing measures look inevitable, which doesn’t exactly sit well with the ‘magical’ atmosphere it wants to create. In addition to this, departures of its cruise ships remain suspended. Naturally, Disney will also continue to face stiff competition for eyeballs from the likes of Netflix and Amazon.Having recently hit a record high, one might reasonably argue that a lot of optimism is already in Disney’s share price too. A twist in the coronavirus tale could put paid to that. Due to the size difference, the Cineworld share price is theoretically more likely to double in value in the near future than Disney.

Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori: On Healing and Wholeness

Flint, PhD says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC February 12, 2015 at 6:52 pm Mindfulness is the beginning of repentance, and Bishop Schori’s words help us to remember that. Thanks to the Presiding Bishop’s words we have the theme for Lent this year. If we learn best from our mistakes may the errors of our past lead us into wholeness (holiness) and healing in our beloved Episcopal Church. Comments are closed.

PB Schori had the opportunity to turn words into action back in September and she failed, so these words are just words, and too little, too late in my opinion. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL February 13, 2015 at 10:44 am If God loves and forgives Heather Cook, who are we not to? We can surround the bereft and injured with our love, and extend forgiveness to Heather Cook, whose burdens most of us will never have to carry. We ALL need to heal, and with God’s love, we can. February 12, 2015 at 9:56 pm Ditto all that has been said. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Jon Spangler says: February 14, 2015 at 4:36 pm The PB’s words are well-spoken and articulate, but–somehow–ring hollow to me. While she acknowledges that healing (especially in tragic circumstances like these) is not easy, is a long, hard road, she misses something. She says that we begin in prayer, in wailing and lament. Somewhere, I would like to hear about repentance and change in our behavior. It appears that responsible officials in the Episcopal Church were well aware of Bp. Cook’s difficulties with alcohol and her past history of arrest, which took place only some months prior to her election. Yet, the decision was taken to “forgive” it, let her stand for election, and not to inform the electing convention of these facts. Moreover, I’ve heard that there was evidence of this problem at the time of her ordination. I suspect that others were aware of her history. Yet, no one stepped in to confront or help her and a man died because of that. There is no guarantee, of course, that something like this still wouldn’t have happened as long as Bp. Cook continued to drink and drive. …whether or not she was confronted with the problem. But, in crucial circumstances, she wasn’t. My experience has been that we in this church often are soft on this problem, unwilling to confront…bad form, maybe, certainly uncomfortable. And we hide behind the command to forgive, not to be judgmental. As the PB says, we cannot change the past or restore life to Mr. Palermo, but maybe we could take a more honest look at this tendency and take some responsibility for the demand that places on us the next time one of us runs into it.

Might not repentance be a motivating factor in reminding us that we are all frail and, therefore, need to show compassion when others fall. Compassion does not exclude acknowledging our failures which is an important step toward healing. I fully share Ms. Bay’s observations about alcoholism, that it is a progressive disease, that it must be taken very, very seriously, both to support those in recovery or trying to be and to guard our institutions and their missions from the ravages of unacknowledged disease. Thank you, both of you! Finally, I’ve no question whatever but that the PB was sincere in all that she wrote and I support it. I simply missed in her words the need for repentance on all our parts if full healing is to come about. Repentance includes taking steps to make a difference, not just feelings. I hope this sad incident can be a spur to the Church’s efforts to deal with alcoholism in its ranks and the social ethos that has encouraged it. Jon is right, we need to pray and pray a lot–pray in grief, in repentance and contrition, in hope, and then we need to go out and work at what needs to be done to avoid such tragedies in the future. February 12, 2015 at 5:38 pm What gracious and healing words from the Presiding Bishop. Thank God for her willingness to speak out in the midst of such hurt of the healing ministry which belongs to all of God’s people, acknowledging our part in the disease and brokenness.

Our church has never fully acknowledged the costs of drug and alcohol addiction, nor has it acted sufficiently to ensure that we live a “sober” life as both individuals and as communities. Those tremendous costs are tragically exemplified by what happened when Heather Cook killed Tom Palermo in Baltimore, but this is far from an isolated incident within the church family. As always, “we begin in prayer – lament and wailing at loss and at human frailty.” And take action where we can to uphold each other in that frailty, intervening more often than we have to “bear one another’s burdens.” Rector Shreveport, LA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Smithfield, NC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Submit an Event Listing Rector Knoxville, TN In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 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 February 26, 2015 at 9:39 am Well said, Alda.

Our life finds meaning in responding to the cries around us and within us, as individuals in community. We follow One who was himself vilified, tortured, and finally executed for proclaiming the possibility of reconciled relationships in communities divided by poverty, violence, and religion.The tragic death of Thomas Palermo challenges us all to attend to the work of healing.  We cannot restore what is past, but we can seek reconciliation and wholeness for all who have been affected – the Palermo family, Heather Cook, the biking community and others in Baltimore, the Diocese of Maryland, bystanders and onlookers who have witnessed any of these traumatic events.We begin in prayer – lament and wailing at loss and at human frailty.  We continue in prayer – for succor and comfort, for compassion, for transformation and healing.  Episcopalians worship a God who came among us in fragile human flesh and suffered pain and death at the hands of other human beings. We understand his resurrection to mean that death does not have the final word – and that healing and wholeness transcend the grave. That healing is never quick or easy, it does not “fix” what has already happened, but it does begin to let hope grow again.Our task is that hard work of healing. It requires vulnerability to the pain of all involved – victims, transgressors, onlookers, friends and families and coworkers and emergency responders and community members. A violent death often divides communities, yet ultimately healing requires us all to lower our defenses enough to let others minister to us, to hear another’s pain and grief, to share our own devastation, and indeed to look for the possibility of a new and different future. Healing also comes through a sense of restored order, which is the role of processes of accountability.Healing requires hope for a redeemed future for the Palermo family as well as Heather Cook. Many have been changed by this death, yet their lives are not ended. They can be healed and transformed, even though the path be long and hard. Our work is to walk that path in solidarity with all who grieve and mourn. May we pray with the psalmist, “Yea, even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you are with me.” May we also be that companioning presence, the image of God in the flesh, for those who walk through that valley.The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori Presiding Bishop and Primate The Episcopal Church Stewart David Wigdor says: February 16, 2015 at 10:40 am Alda Morgan,Even the measures you call for–measures I wish had been taken and would recommend myself–“begin in prayer – lament and wailing at loss and at human frailty.” We progress to these next steps only if we acknowledge our common human frailty–as cyclists, drivers, priests, and humans–from the beginning. This extends to our individual and corporate responsibilities–met and unmet–to challenge and intervene with those burdened by addiction. I weep for all the people who missed multiple opportunities to intervene with Heather Cook: they, too, must feel torn by their failure(s) to act: there is a tremendous cost to inaction.Our church has long been known as a “shelter” for those who love “strong drink.” We have taken some beginning steps towards a more “sober” (responsible) approach to alcohol and drug use among our members, particularly our clergy, and Tom Palermo’s death is an obvious and glaring example of our institutional shortcomings thus far. More must be done, and I have been a advocate of such changes for decades. The tension between the pastoral and prophetic functions in our church is not new, but a holy compassion must always undergird both. I see no reason to doubt Bishop Katharine’s sincerity or authenticity here–these words need to be said *in addition to* the taking of stronger actions in a different–and more appropriate–forum later on. But first, last, and always, we must pray–and “weep with those who weep.” Rector Albany, NY Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ February 12, 2015 at 6:40 pm This is by far the most cogent, compassionate, and Christian thing that has been said about the whole situation since it happened. Thank you, Bishop Katharine. Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Cathedral Dean Boise, ID February 15, 2015 at 4:58 am The Presiding Bishop is trying to do damage control. It’s too little too late I’m afraid. The red flags of Heather Cook’s Alcoholism were evident as far back as 1988, as documented by former students. Heather’s Alcoholism was evident from the get-go. It’ is very difficult to understand all of her employers missing the signs of her progressive Disease. Clearly the 2010 DUI should have been the absolute end of applying for bishop. Instead, the people who were in charge of the examination process didn’t understand how Alcoholism works and looked at the DUI as a “one time thing.” I think what Presiding Bishop Schori should be addressing is the church’s failure to be able to screen applicants for untreated Alcoholism. There are a large amount of clergy in Recovery , but I hasten to point out that that means actual long-term Recovery; ie. sponsor, meetings, service in A.A. , etc. etc. The several Alcoholics that I know who have many years in A.A. all say the same thing, no newly sober Alcoholic should ever be put in a position of high stress -one A.A. clergyman said in his opinion, a minimum of 10 years in the program (A.A.) should be a guideline to be even proposed for holy orders and bishop? -That needs specialized consideration. I know there are many Addiction specialists that the Episcopal Church could use to examine candidates. It’s important to know that Alcoholism is a Progressive Disease-it’s not a “moral choice”-it’s physiological Disease and usually genetic. The University of Indiana released a current study that identifies eleven genes in the body of an Alcoholic that is only in the body of an Alcoholic. As Dr. Pursch said, Alcoholism is a progressive Disease and not a “behaviour” like biting off your fingernails. Education is the key. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Collierville, TN Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET February 13, 2015 at 7:49 am The healing words of PB Katherine are what we need in understanding the place of this tragic event in our collective being as a Church. May we be a healing presence to ourselves as we walk in solidarity.last_img read more

The occasion was the 23rd Seminar, entitled “Parties and a New Society,” hosted by the Workers Party of Mexico in that country’s capital.The Seminar agenda follows a standard pattern that includes reports from parties, in government and out, on how to mobilize the population to make the existing society function. It may even be a socialist society like Cuba’s. There were statements from representatives of China, Vietnam and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. There was also room for reports on ongoing struggles.From the viewpoint of anti-imperialists organizing inside an imperialist country, the key points hit by the Seminar were the following: The absolute necessity to show solidarity with the Bolivarian government of Venezuela in its battle against U.S. imperialist aggression. All the many spokespeople who addressed this current crisis said this solidarity had priority. They saw the attack on Venezuela as also aimed at Nicaragua, Bolivia, Cuba and the sovereignty of the whole continent. The need to critically examine the setbacks brought about in recent years after an imperialist offensive, using varied tactics, brought down progressive elected governments in Honduras, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. These came from military coups, electoral maneuvering and juridical maneuvering. How can we prevent further setbacks and reverse these? The comments were realistic and filled with determination to fight back, including a campaign to free President Lula in Brazil. The Seminar welcomed the electoral victory by Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in Mexico, the one election result that countered the recent setbacks.This reporter was the only delegate who represented a U.S.-based political party, Workers World Party, and delivered a succinct solidarity statement to the Seminar. The statement warned that however the 2020 election turned out in the U.S., the world should prepare for a continuation of Washington’s aggressive foreign policy. It also reported that Workers World newspaper featured Venezuela weekly on its front page for two months and that on Feb. 23 there were demonstrations in 100 North American cities in solidarity with the Nicolás Maduro government against the provocations by U.S. imperialism and its puppets.

Radio reporter freed after being held for 14 years on genocide charge

Makeli has suffered an incredibly long ordeal during which he was unable to defend himself against slanderous allegations”, Reporters Without Borders said. The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa News Organisation April 6, 2020 Find out more October 16, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio reporter freed after being held for 14 years on genocide charge to go further Reporters Without Borders has learned that Dominique Makeli, a former reporter with state-owned Radio Rwanda who had been held since 1994 on a vague, genocide-related charge, was released on 13 October.“This is excellent news and a great relief,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Like fellow Radio Rwanda journalist Tatiana Mukakibibi, who was freed in November 2007 after 11 years in detention, Makeli has suffered an incredibly long ordeal during which he was unable to defend himself against slanderous allegations. We hope he will now be able to live peacefully, after these 14 years of isolation and injustice.”Makeli’s release on 13 October was a result of his acquittal by a gacaca (popular tribunal) in the Kigali district of Nyarugenge on 5 October. Detained since 18 September 1994, he had been transferred from one detention centre to another, ending up in Kigali central prison, also known as “1930”.A public prosecutor told Reporters Without Borders in October 2001 that Makeli was accused of inciting genocide in his reports. While covering a supposed appearance of the Virgin in Kibeho, in the west of the country, in May 1994, Makeli reported that she was supposed to have said: “The parent is in heaven.” The prosecutor insisted that, in the context of that moment, this was taken to mean, “President Habyarimana is in heaven” and was interpreted as a message of support for Habyarimana and, by extension, the policy of exterminating Tutsis. Both Makeli and many local independent observers disputed that interpretation.During its visits to Rwanda, Reporters Without Borders met Makeli several times in prison. A very religious person whose health deteriorated steadily during his years in prison, he always insisted on his innocence. He was transferred to Arusha, Tanzania, in 2007 to appear as a witness before the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) and was returned to prison in Rwanda afterwards.
