Harshil Patel | Monday, 19th October, 2020 | More on: BOO Boohoo share price just dropped 20% in a day. Here’s what I’d do now Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The boohoo group (LSE:BOO) share price dropped around 20% in a day after news surrounding the company’s auditors. The media reported that the accounting giant PwC has signalled its intention to quit as Boohoo’s auditor. In response, on Monday, Boohoo released a statement saying that PwC remains its auditor at this time but it has recently launched a tender process to find a new auditor.It’s unclear to me which came first. The reasons behind the decisions are also currently unknown. Speculation surrounding the details caused a sharp drop in the Boohoo share price on Monday. Investors tend not to like uncertainty, so the Boohoo share price reaction doesn’t surprise me.  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…Until there is further clarity, sentiment is likely to remain dented. In my opinion, the Boohoo share price could remain under some pressure in the short term.Separately, the Sunday Times reported that the National Crime Agency is investigating companies that supply Boohoo, over suspicions of money laundering and VAT fraud. Although there seem to be no links to the company, apart from being suppliers, it could be adding to negative sentiment caused elsewhere.Boohoo’s share price strugglesThe Boohoo share price is down by over 15% so far this year. However, it’s been a volatile year for Boohoo investors, and has included significant gains and falls. In a Covid-19-related, market-induced panic in March, the Boohoo share price fell from 300p at the start of the year to a low of around 135p.It then recovered those losses and went onto triple by the summer, reaching a high of over 400p. Then, in July, allegations surrounding suppliers in its supply chain using underpaid staff and unsafe working conditions in Leicester caused further investor panic, causing Boohoo’s share price to drop by 50% to a low of approximately 200p.It then once again reached highs of 400p. It has definitely been a year of ups and downs for the Boohoo share price. Today, at the time of writing, shares are trading 20% down on the day, at around 255p. This recent share price weakness adds to what has been a volatile year for Boohoo investors. Does it matter for long term investors?In a word, no. Boohoo is fundamentally strong and thriving, in my opinion. It continues to grow its earnings and market share. Its online business model drives market-leading profit margins. Its expansion of brands drives earnings growth. With an entrepreneurial foundation, it manages to stay ambitious.Long-term investors have much to look forward to from this popular online clothes retailer. With a price-to-earnings ratio of 33 and earnings growth of 36%, it does not look particularly expensive. I also like that it has a return on capital of 27% and net cash on its balance sheet.I reckon this business could be significantly larger in the coming years, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Boohoo share price above 400p in 2021. The concerns that caused share price volatility this year could all be viewed as noise if you take a long-term view.So, would I buy more shares now on the recent share price weakness? My current thoughts are, not yet. I am somewhat concerned about the details surrounding the auditor and would rather wait for further clarity. I won’t be selling my shares either. I hold a relatively small amount of Boohoo shares, and will likely keep them as the long-term investment I initially bought them for.last_img read more

People seeking martial arts might find themselves at St. Thomas in New Windsor, New York. The Hudson Valley church has a tai chi and wushu kung fu fusion fitness class on Saturdays through mid-December.Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Memphis, Tennessee, has a Parish Life Center open to parishioners and the community. The center offers sports, group-fitness classes, personal training, an indoor track, a basketball court, weight machines, recovery groups, small-group meetings, neighborhood gatherings and dinners. Today’s group fitness classes include tai chi, yoga, Pilates, post-pregnancy classes, mother-and-child stroller fitness and a diverse fitness adventure-oriented class.It’s basically a free gym operated with Christian values that is located behind the church, to which it is connected by a covered driveway. The center is available for everyone to use, as long as they follow the rules of conduct, said Marietta Haaga, director of recreation. Of course, donations are accepted.Parishioners raised the money to build the center in 1999, as a recreation outreach ministry. Some instructors start off their classes with prayer. “Keeping people on track, physically, mentally and spiritually is what we’re about,” said Haaga, who is also a personal trainer. “Really, our philosophy and ministry is to make sure people stay healthy in mind, soul and body.”Providing a place for people to exercise in a good, clean, safe and Christian environment accomplishes that goal. Sometimes people tell Haaga they went to a church service because they heard about it at the Parish Life Center. The center also offers speakers, health fairs and blood drives.Fitness as worshipYou don’t have to tell Paige Lollis that faith and fitness can be intertwined. She was the catalyst of such a combination at her church, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Frisco, Texas. It began when Lollis took Pilates with Christi Price, a certified instructor and fellow woman of faith. They transformed their private Pilates session into a worship workout, incorporating faith-based music and scripture.The Faith and Fitness ministry at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Frisco, Texas, which was started by church member Paige Lollis, offers Pilates and Holy Yoga classes. Photo: Christi PriceLollis liked it so much, she talked to Kelley Prahl, then the church’s director of adult discipleship. They started offering six-class sessions of Pilates every season. Bible verses are read and Christian music is played in each class. This past season, they added Holy Yoga taught by Maureen Beville, an instructor certified in the gospel-centered yoga with its own training certification.“When you come to church, you meet God on your pew, whereas with this, you meet God on your mat,” Lollis said. “Instead of the instructor telling you to lift your hands to the ceiling, it’s raising your hands to the Lord. We’re very intentional. We want to center our minds on the Word of God and integrate it into our muscle memory.”Class fees range from $10 to $15, and a portion of proceeds go to a charitable organization, most recently, the Redeemed Women ministry.Stevi McCoy, the church’s director of community life, loves taking the Pilates class. “This is another way to worship; we’re trying to offer the biggest selection of ways to worship and fellowship and grow as disciples,” McCoy said.“I feel like any other kind of exercise classes focuses on you; in these classes, you focus on God. That’s the biggest difference. You have thanksgiving for your life.”Fitness as meditationIn Gladwyne, Raining teaches an ancient type of yoga called ashtanga at her Pennsylvania church. The free classes are twice a week and available to all members of the community. She starts class with a meditation that blends Christian and yoga principles, gives a mini sermon, instructs students in their yoga poses and closes with a meditation.“What I found in yoga is a beautiful blend of inward change that has an outward catalyst,” Raining said.Yoga instructor and spiritual leader Amy Dolan and the Rev. Hillary Raining, who teaches yoga at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, are co-authoring a book, “Faith with a Twist: A 30 Day Yoga Journey.” Photo: HillaryRaining.comOther kinds of exercise can be meditative too. The priest loves to run and hike. She usually listens to music, but she can decide to spend 10 minutes of that time as a meditation by setting the playlist to hymns. As a Lenten discipline, she once fasted from listening to music while running and listened to the silence instead.“Yoga has the advantage because it’s built into the aura of the practice. But any fitness practice done with intention can bring you closer to God,” Raining said.With fellow yoga instructor and spiritual leader Amy Dolan, Raining is writing a book, “Faith with a Twist: A 30 Day Yoga Journey,” which she hopes to offer at the 79th General Convention in July in Austin, Texas. She’s also in the process of building a women’s spiritual and wellness website, called The Hive.You don’t have to be scared that you’re following Buddhism or Hinduism when practicing yoga, these Christian yoga teachers say. The parallels are a natural fit. For example, yoga’s drishti technique uses a specific gazing direction for the eyes to control attention, according to Yoga Journal.It’s a Sanskrit term for your focal gazing point, which helps you concentrate, stay balanced and go deeper into the posture.“If your eyes are on something moving, you will fall down,” Raining said. “I think that’s a really Christian thing to think too: Whatever you’re keeping your gaze on that’s true and holy, not the temptations and distractions, when your gaze is focused on Christ, that’s where you’re heading. I can practice it on my mat, and I can practice it in my life.”— Amy Sowder is a special correspondent for the Episcopal News Service and a freelance writer and editor based in Brooklyn.

Gena Davis and run with Rev. John K. Graham, in Houston, Texas, and beyond. Photo: Jonathan Dow/YogaMass[Episcopal News Service] Something happened when the Rev. Gena Davis balanced on one leg for tree pose and reached her arms skyward while squatting for chair pose in yoga class. Something transformational.“It starts as a physical practice, and it can move into a spiritual practice. And that’s when the real question comes: What is this, and how can I make sense of this as a priest?” said Davis, who was vicar of Grace Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas, at the time. She did her yoga teacher training then, too.“In church, some people feel they’re worshipping in their head. This is a way to bring the body into worship. We totally recognize the mind-body-spirit connection. They’re integrated. It’s really a movement toward wholeness.”Many Episcopalians are recognizing that Christians and other spiritual seekers often need a more holistic approach to practicing their faith, fellowship and worship.Fitness is one way. Faith and fitness can go hand in hand in many types of exercise, be it mediating while running, taking a boot camp class or practicing yoga.Davis’ personal yoga practice inspired her to co-create YogaMass, which incorporates the Eucharist. Partnering with the Rev. John K. Graham, president and CEO of the Institute for Spirituality and Health at the Texas Medical Center and interim priest at Grace Church, Davis received approval from Diocese of Texas Bishop Andy Doyle to create a liturgy for YogaMass. The yoga worship services began in January 2016.Davis leads the yoga flow; she and Graham take turns sharing the gospel; they both celebrate Eucharist; and sometimes they have someone else lead the meditation portion. While the ritual and practice started at Grace Church, they now move to different locations throughout Houston, and have plans for spots in California. Davis wants to share this experience with as many people in as many places as possible.(Left to right) Cyrus Wirls on djembe drum and Stuart Nelson on sitar play music while the Rev. John K. Graham and the Rev. Gena Davis lead the class up front near the altar during YogaMass. Davis started the program in 2016 at Grace Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas, and now takes it across the area, as well as California, to spread awareness of its fusion of ancient yoga practices and Christian principles. Davis and others provide classes that also act as a worship and meditation service. Photo: Jonathan Dow/YogaMassShe wrote a book, “YogaMass: Embodying Christ Consciousness,” published by Balboa Press in April, detailing how yoga’s ancient principles are complementary with Christian values. The book’s first line, “This is my body,” is what Davis says every time she celebrates the Eucharist.“As Episcopalians, we know those are the words Jesus spoke on his last night. Those are Eucharistic words. Those are our words as faithful Christians, and to bring it home and say it yourself, that brings up all sorts of possibility for exploration,” Davis said. “I think that’s too powerful to pass up. We can’t ignore the body. It’s our way of experiencing life.”Practicing yoga has opened up Christianity for Davis. It’s a perspective that’s deepened her faith. The practice can broaden the boundaries as well. People in their 20s have told her they’re not comfortable in traditional church settings, but they still want to worship. YogaMass is their answer.“There’s this huge fitness craze out there. I see people get on their mats and feel so good, but what they’re longing for is that connection with other people, and the Divine, and that’s God. Sometimes they can’t name that,” Davis said.Fitness as outreachDrawing people from the community who might not otherwise go to church is a big motivator for churches to host fitness classes.“Big churches in the baby-boomer generation saw their fitness centers as a type of YMCA, a tremendous outreach,” said the Rev. Hillary Raining, who teaches yoga at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. “Taking care of your body is a Christian value. Paul tells us our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit; and I don’t think you’d leave your church temple in disarray.” Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Bath, NC Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY November 6, 2017 at 6:00 am Very interested Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ last_img read more

He said several Internet Service Providers told him that officials had instructed them to block the sites. Since the measure has not been officially recognised, the targeted electronic media have no recourse. As their financial situation is already fragile, it could cause them significant problems.Meanwhile, the weekly newspaper Faraj has been unable to appear for the second week running as it has not managed to find a company willing to print it. The newspaper Paykhon failed to appear on 13 October for the same reason.Tajikstan’s already precarious independent press has long face hostility from the authorities and the tension has grown steadily since the start of this year. The new outbreak of violence linked to the war in neighbouring Afghanistan, and Tajikistan’s role in that war, has fuelled the flames. Last July, Tajikistan’s deputy mufti, Saidjon Sorbonkhodj, publicly urged the government to close all the independent newspapers, blaming them for the anti-government criticism and protests and singling out Faraj and Paykhon.A former Soviet republic, Tajikistan became embroiled in a civil war within months of gaining its independence in 1991. More than 50,000 people died in the war, which pushed about a tenth of the estimated 7 million inhabitants into exile. Since then, Tajikistan has suffered the consequences of the war in Afghanistan, including a disturbing level of drug trafficking (80 per cent of the drug seizures in central Asia) and incursions by Islamic militants suspected of seeking refuge in Tajikistan’s mountains.*The newspapers that have criticised the defence ministry’s military operations include Asia Plus, Faraj, Ozodagon, Negah, Paykhon, Fakty i Kommentarii, Sobytia, Bizness i Politika, Tojikiston, Digest Press and Charikhi Gardun. Newscenter_img RSF_en News August 25, 2020 Find out more May 14, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders deplores the offensive that the Tajik authorities have launched against media critical of the government, in which several newspapers have been forced to stop printing and access to many websites has been blocked. Journalist loses accreditation over report about Tajikistan’s president In an open letter published by the official news agency Khovar on 4 October, defence minister Sherali Khairullayev accused 17 newspapers* that covered an attack by militants (possibly the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan) on an army convoy in the eastern Rasht valley on 19 September of “complicity with the terrorists” and “committing a grave crime.” Despite protests from the newspapers and from press freedom defenders such as Nuriddin Karshiboev, the head of the National Association of Independent Media of Tajikistan (NANSMIT), the authorities are continuing their attacks on the media. Referring to the 1992-97 civil war, President Emomali Rakhmon accused “certain media” on 5 October of “taking their example from the 1990s and being bellicose.” Warning them against just seeking “sensationalism,” he added that “hoping for the support of their foreign protectors will not do them any good.” Other officials such as the education minister have made similar comments. There have also been more direct forms of pressure.A tax investigation into three newspapers, Faraj, Negah and Millat, was launched on 28 September. A similar investigation was started the next day at three companies that print these newspapers. Syavosh Hamdamov, the head of one of the companies, AToliyev Print, said it was “more of an attack than an investigation” and that his staff had been questioned about the newspapers.“The reaction of the Tajik authorities is disproportionate and extremely damaging to the country’s image,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They may hope to demonstrate that they control the situation but the result could unfortunately be quite the opposite. “We understand that Tajikstan’s leaders are concerned about stability, as the country was torn by five years of civil war, but repressive and illegal measures will not help.” The press freedom organisation added: “We urge the authorities to respond favourably to the dialogue proposals being made by journalists and media advocates, and to put an immediate stop to the unjustified attempts to obstruct the media.”The heads of several news media and organisations that defend the media yesterday requested a meeting with presidential adviser S. Fatoyev to discuss the problems. At the same time, the Association of Independent Media of Tajikistan urged the defence minister to give specific examples to support his charges of complicity with the armed militants.Several independent news websites are currently inaccessible including those of the independent news agency and the central Asia news and analysis outlet, as well as and The government is suspected of ordering the blocking although it has said nothing on the subject.

first_imgCommunity News Local Officials Expect Peaceful Election in Pasadena Most leaders are optimistic but understand national concerns By ANDRÉ COLEMAN and DAVID CROSS Published on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 | 4:47 pm Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Photo by James CarboneAlthough some expressed personal concerns, city officials told Pasadena Now they expect no acts of violence on Tuesday, Election Day.“I find so much about the election incredibly disheartening,” said City Manager Steve Mermell. “Never before in my life can I recall a time when voters had to worry about their ability to vote and have that vote counted. I’m hopeful that after the election these issues will be addressed so that they are not repeated in future elections.“In terms of safety and security,” Mermell continued, “I believe Pasadena will be peaceful next week. However, we must always prepare for potential events. Accordingly, for some time now the Pasadena Police Department has been in contact with federal and regional law enforcement. Should issues arise locally, we have a plan and will be ready.”Pasadena Police Chief John Perez said he was hopeful the elections would be uneventful and that everyone would have a positive voting experience.Unfortunately, however, some voters may be expecting things to get tense.According to one poll, nearly nine out of 10 California voters were worried others would not accept the outcome of Tuesday’s election, and 44 percent believed violence was “very likely” if there are disputes about the election. Another 44 percent thought it was “somewhat likely,” and just 12 percent said it was not likely at all.President Donald Trump has been attempting to sow doubt in the nation’s elections by attacking mail-in voting and claiming that the only way he can lose is if the election is rigged.With just six days to go before the election, nearly 78 million people have already voted.“We do understand the national concerns regarding protests and/or demonstrations and we are preparing, as appropriate, for anything that may occur,” said Perez.“National Guard soldiers around the nation will take part in cybersecurity assisting state officials by trying to prevent foreign governments and others from interfering with the vote,” said the chief.“I’m not concerned about it here locally in the city of Pasadena,” said City Councilmember John Kennedy, who chairs the council’s Public Safety Committee. “I think our residents are law-abiding, and if they protest, they historically protest peacefully. I don’t see why there would be any reason for any type of violence of any kind.”Democrats and Republicans have expressed concerns regarding the election. In response to fears of voter suppression, NAACP Pasadena has partnered with the League of Women Voters — Pasadena Area, and Women in Leadership Vital Voices to address the issue.The organizations are looking for individuals who are interested in being coordinators or driving people to local voting centers.“During the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is important that we all continue to use our voices to shape our communities. Many of our ancestors fought for the right to vote and were brutally attacked and/or killed for trying to exercise their voting right. In an attempt to combat voter suppression or the lack of access to transportation it is important that we come together as a community” said Allen Edson, president of NAACP Pasadena.But Republicans have long pushed multiple conspiracies that many fear could be a powder keg if the election is contested.For four years, the Trump administration has pushed conspiracy theories about a deep state cabal, which includes members of the news media, Democratic nominee Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, and 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.The theory was in part birthed by Qanon, a far right-wing conspiracy group with some members who believe John Kennedy Jr. faked his own death and was going to replace Vice Mike Pence on the ticket.“What makes the United States democracy different from any other democracy is we accept vote results, and we transfer governance without bloodshed,” said Councilmember Victor Gordo, who is facing off against Mayor Terry Tornek in the election.“That is the essence of our democracy — without violence.

The increase matched October’s improvement and was slightly weaker than September’s 0.8 percent growth.Released monthly, the index gauges the potential for future economic growth based on 10 leading components, including homebuilding permits, weekly initial unemployment claims, and average consumer expectations for business conditions.”The increase in the LEI signals continued moderate growth through the winter season,” said Ken Goldstein, economist at The Conference Board. “The biggest challenge has been, and remains, more income growth. However, with labor market conditions tightening, we are seeing the first signs of wage growth starting to pick up.”The Conference Board’s two other economic indices—measuring current and lagging indicators—also improved last month. The coincident economic index, which includes payrolls and incomes, grew 0.4 percent to 110.7, while the lagging economic index climbed 0.3 percent to 125.4.”The current situation, measured by the coincident economic index, has been improving steadily, with employment and industrial production making the largest contributions in November,” said Ataman Ozyildirim, economist at The Conference Board.
