So, all of us wanted to help in whatever way we can. As soon as they came to know about the dire situation, the Indian doctors’ fraternity in Western Australia came together. We have already handed over the first consignment of ventilators, oxygen concentrators and other vital equipment to the Central government,” Laxman Sivaramakrishnan told TNIE.The initiative has already shipped the first consignment of medical supplies from Australia to New Delhi for the Armed forces. However, the process hasn’t been easy with Australia’s travel ban for India that lifted on May 15.

Forget buy-to-let, Cash ISAs and Premium Bonds: I’d buy FTSE 100 stocks in the market crash

first_img Enter Your Email Address 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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100’s recent decline may mean that some investors consider purchasing other mainstream assets. Cash ISAs and Premium Bonds, for example, may offer lower risks in the short run. Similarly, buy-to-let investments may appear to be more resilient than a crashing stock market.However, over the long run the FTSE 100 may produce significantly higher returns than other mainstream assets. As such, now could be the right time to build a diverse portfolio of large-cap shares, and hold them in the coming years.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…Relative appealThe recent decline in interest rates is set to cause the returns on Cash ISAs and Premium Bonds to decline. They are now unlikely to match inflation over the next few years. While this may not appear to be a problem in the short run, a loss of spending power may mean that your financial future is negatively impacted. This may make it more difficult to build a retirement nest egg, for example.Likewise, investing in buy-to-let properties may not be as profitable as it has been in the past. Coronavirus looks set to have a significant and potentially prolonged impact on the performance of the wider economy. This may lead to houses becoming unaffordable for many people, which causes house price growth to moderate. Furthermore, tax changes to second homes may mean that buy-to-let returns are relatively disappointing on a net basis.Return appealAs such, buying FTSE 100 shares could be a sound move. They may display substantially greater levels of volatility than other mainstream assets. But, for long-term investors who are not seeking to profit in the short run, now could prove to be an opportune moment to capitalise on the index’s low valuation.For example, the FTSE 100 currently has a dividend yield of around 6%. Although there is the prospect of dividend cuts among many of the index’s members, the reality is that many FTSE 100 companies have dividends that are highly affordable. They may not need to reduce shareholder payouts, or if they do, it could prove to be over a very limited time period. Therefore, the FTSE 100’s valuation could end up being highly attractive at the present time.Risk managementOf course, many individuals may be uncertain about the outlook for the FTSE 100. The index has, after all, fallen by as much as 35% in a matter of weeks. In such an environment, assets such as Cash ISAs, Premium Bonds and buy-to-let properties may seem to be more attractive.But over the long run, the index has recovery potential. Its track record shows that investors who buy when the index is cheap and hold on to their stocks throughout bear markets generally produce high returns. Adopting such a strategy could, therefore, prove to be a worthwhile move at the present time.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Martinsville, VA UPDATE: Edmund Zagorski’s execution, originally scheduled for Oct. 11, was delayed to let last-minute challenges proceed in Tennessee courts.[Episcopal News Service] Executions resumed in Tennessee this year after a nearly decadelong hiatus, and Episcopalians who minister to death row inmates and those who advocate against the death penalty are responding with prayers and protests.The first execution in the state since 2009 was carried out in August with the lethal-injection death of Billy Irick for the 1985 rape and killing of a 7-year-old girl. A second inmate, Edmund Zagorski, is due to be put to death on Oct. 11 for a double murder committed in 1983. An anti-death penalty group has organized a demonstration for the evening of Zagorski’s execution outside the Riverbend prison in Nashville where male death row inmates are held.Alvaro Manrique Barrenechea, a parishioner at Nashville’s Christ Church Cathedral, expects to participate. He joined a similar demonstration before Irick’s execution on Aug. 9, after spending a year and a half meeting monthly with Irick through a death row visitation ministry led by Christ Church Cathedral.“He was definitely very excited when I visited,” Barrenechea said in an interview with Episcopal News Service. Irick didn’t have any relatives come see him, so Barrenechea often was Irick’s only contact with the outside world. That is one reason Barrenechea felt called to this ministry. “I can’t imagine the thought process of thinking there’s nobody in the entire world that’s thinking about you.”Episcopalians also are called to such ministries by the Episcopal Church’s longtime opposition to the death penalty, as reaffirmed several times at General Convention since 1958. The 79th General Convention, meeting in July in Austin, Texas, added to that list a new resolution that calls for all death row inmates’ sentences to be reduced and enlists bishops in states where the death penalty is legal to take up greater advocacy.“There’s considerable confusion about what might be the Christian response” to capital punishment, the Very Rev. Timothy Kimbrough, dean of Christ Church Cathedral said in an interview. “The Episcopal Church has been very clear for decades about its opposition to the death penalty. That’s one of the reasons I’m grateful to be a part of a community like this.”Christ Church’s death row visitation ministry has been carried out by a team of up to 30 lay volunteers. Each is assigned to one of the 60 inmates awaiting execution.Kimbrough wrote a letter to his congregation before Irick’s execution, saying such a time “tests the Divine’s resolve to forgive, hallow, and bless.”While acknowledging the horror of Irick’s crime, Kimbrough wrote, “to murder the murderer … will neither restrain the savage impulse of another criminal nor model for society the respect that life itself would otherwise demand.”Kimbrough also sent a letter to Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, asking him to convert the sentence to life in prison. Receipt of that letter was acknowledged, Kimbrough said, but Haslam did not act to stop Irick’s execution.Edmund ZagorskiHaslam also declined on Oct. 5 to offer clemency to Zagorski despite new objections to Tennessee’s lethal injection drugs in the wake of Irick’s execution. Some experts have suggested the first drug in a three-drug cocktail failed to render Irick unconscious before the other two drugs subjected him to excruciating pain and finally killed him.Zagorski cited the threat of “torture” in requesting death by electrocution instead, but that request was denied by the state.When asked about the execution drug controversy, Kimbrough called it something of a spiritual “red herring.”A Christian “who would see the death penalty dismantled would not stand for any method of execution that somehow would be deemed constitutional,” he said. “Every method of execution might be seen to a Christian as cruel and unusual. How we can look at the cross and don’t imagine that to be true, I don’t know.”The Rev. Bob Davidson, national chair of Episcopal Peace Fellowship who submitted the anti-death penalty resolution at General Convention, argued in an email to ENS that economic disparities in the judicial system also support reducing Zagorski’s sentence to life in prison.“Those who cannot afford adequate representation or resources” often are unable to defend against “the ultimate act of society playing God by putting someone to death,” Davidson said. “Every life has worth and value, regardless of our human actions.”Zagorski is scheduled to be executed at 7 p.m. Oct. 11. The state Department of Correction said in its latest update that he had refused to receive a final meal.The death penalty still is in effect in 31 states, but the number of executions nationwide has dropped steadily since 1999, from a high of 98 that year to 20 in 2016, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.A rapid series of executions in Arkansas in April 2017, brought the issue of capital punishment back into the national spotlight. At the time, Episcopalians and other advocates hoped the attention would add momentum to the push for abolition.Public opinion has for decades tilted in favor of the death penalty, with a Gallup poll from 2017 showing 55 percent of respondents supporting a death sentence for someone convicted of murder. Support has been on the decline since the mid-1990s, however, and polls show fewer people favor the death penalty when alternatives are suggested.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

We were going out there and back during the wee hours of the mornings when it was pitch black, and 9 miles out! I would always think about what would happen if there was a fire or the boat would start sinking, and of course sharks….LOL Plus I never learned to swim.

On the last two paragraphs it states that there would still be a countywide cap on the number of stores, based on population. And ALL the protections for separations from schools and CHURCHES would remain in place!!!!…..(talking about the liquor stores)…….. Mama Mia January 15, 2018 at 11:26 am January 14, 2018 at 4:56 pm Mama Mia Mama Mia I was against these alcohol amendments at the City of Apopka recently, and I still say it is not good for our city! To me, it seems like deception, when I read this article, in the Orlando Sentinel by Scott Maxwell, as compared to what the public was told at the Apopka City Council meeting regarding Orange County’s ordinance….IMO Mama Mia Mama Mia Mama Mia Reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Mama Mia I am catching up on the news since I went to bed early last night, feeling bad from this bug I caught, and I see that there was a fire on the casino boat out of New Port Richey. It was the ferry boat that takes you out into the gulf. OMG. Those people had to jump overboard into the frigid waters, as it was about 43 degrees, as the ferry boat was fully engulfed in flames! I have been out there in the gulf, so many times, as well as in the Atlantic, on these kinds of gambling boats, and I feel lucky and thankful that didn’t happen when I was there on board, and believe me, I have thought about it while out there too! Reply January 14, 2018 at 5:00 pm January 14, 2018 at 4:43 pm 25 COMMENTS Reply January 14, 2018 at 4:29 pm Okay, if you are interested in going to the Ocoee MLK Day Parade, it too is tomorrow, Monday, Jan. 15, 2018, and from their website, it starts at 87 Clarke Road at the Citrus Elementary School and goes to the West Oaks Mall and ends there, beginning the parade at 13:00 hour. That is military time, I believe, which is 1:00 pm. I think, but don’t take my word for it….google the 12th annual MLK Day Parade in Ocoee, and read it for yourself, as I thought some of the parade units might go there first to Ocoee, and then come join Apopka’s MLK parade, I DON’T KNOW so check it out for yourself on Ocoee’s website. Anyway, it identifies Ocoee as in Polk county, and I know better than that, as it is in Orange County….??? What in this world??? It states there will be an after the parade celebration also there in Ocoee. From tv…40 billion US funds spent on Afghanistan’s military budget, we pay 90 percent of their military budget, and then the US spends and funds another 30 billion of our money to rebuild what has been blown apart! Reply Reply Oh yes, I almost forgot, that now the alcohol establishments in the City of Apopka will be allowed right next to daycares also! Mama Mia Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Mama Mia January 14, 2018 at 6:44 pm I am reading the local and state section B of the Orlando Sentinel newspaper today, specifically, Scott Maxwell’s column, that is about alcohol ordinances and liquor stores. Now this is interesting. The City of Orlando does not have a requirement for certain distances required between liquor stores, so in the City of Orlando, there could be an existing liquor store, and a new one could move in on their sales, and set up shop right next door. Reply Reply Mama Mia January 14, 2018 at 7:00 pm Reply This alcohol ordinance 2612, was discussed to the public, at the council meeting, ahead of the public hearing, and public comments on the ordinance, and it was stated this would bring the City of Apopka in line with Orange County’s alcohol ordinance that they already have on the books, but just look at this article, and you will read that it states all the protections for separations from schools and churches would remain in place! This article also states that there will be caps on the number of liquor stores based on population! I was sitting there at the Apopka City Council Meeting when Commissioner Diane Velazquez asked a very good question, and she asked Mayor Kilsheimer would the city place any limits on the number of alcohol establishments coming in, and the mayor said that the market would be the limiting factor, of how many alcohol establishments come into the City of Apopka….there you go, doesn’t sound like to me, the City of Apopka’s new alcohol ordinance is in line with Orange County’s at all…..IMO Reply Reply Reply January 14, 2018 at 4:35 pm Reply January 14, 2018 at 6:10 pm Mama Mia Mama Mia Mama Mia Mama Mia Reply center_img Anybody know what time the MLK parade starts tomorrow in downtown Apopka? I was over in Ocoee Friday, and I saw signs up there along the roads in Ocoee, that they too are having a MLK parade in Ocoee tomorrow, also. I don’t see any signs or indications of a MLK parade in Apopka tomorrow….no signs or banners anywhere, that I have seen, in this city, about the parade tomorrow. This will be considered next month at the Orange Co. Commission meeting, but according to the article, the commissioners are sluggish to move on this consideration, when confronted by the existing liquor store owners, who said that even downsizing the existing ordinance distance between liquor stores would bankrupt them, and then they sited violence also…uh huh. They beg the commissioners to leave the existing ordinance and the 5000 feet requirement between liquor stores alone!…….. Mama Mia Mama Mia Mama Mia Years and years ago when Walgreens came to the City of Apopka, they wanted to build a liquor store next to the Walgreens regular drug store up town, there across from the city hall building, but the Methodist Church was right behind the area, they wanted to build on, thus that was not allowed to put a liquor store that close to a church with the existing ordinance. So a special exception was requested by Walgreens, and each existing commissioner at that time, and Mayor Land voted NO on the request, except, if I remember correctly, and it was a long time ago, I believe Commissioner Alonzo Williams voted YEA, but it did not carry, as the council majority voted NO, to allowing the Walgreen Liquor Store up town next to the regular Walgreen Store, and what a blessing that turned out to be, that it was not allowed in that location!!! January 14, 2018 at 7:17 pm Wow, I am sitting here watching the news, and they said the casino boat that you gamble on, that the ferry boat was heading to, when it caught fire, was only anchored one mile out in the gulf. That sure surprises me, because when we went out into the gulf on the ferry boats to the casino boat or on the actually casino boat itself to gamble on, we had to go 9 miles out into the Gulf of Mexico, and if it was on the Atlantic side, we had to go 3 miles out into international waters. I wonder when that changed? I don’t believe it is international waters only one mile out in the Gulf of Mexico, and that was the purpose regarding rules and regulations when we had to go so far out back when we used to go all the time? Mama Mia Okay, the MLK parade tomorrow in Apopka, starts at the VFW on Central Av. and 5th St. at 2:00 pm and heads down Station St. and then Lake Av. to 13th St. to the John Bridges Center, where it ends. Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Okay, this gets even more bizarre….I am looking to see when Eatonville will have their MLK parade this year, and they have already had it, on Jan. 13th, 2018, and this website I looked at, stated that Eatonville is in Pierce County! This is getting very, very bizarre regarding this misinformation posted on these websites, of the counties that these cities of Ocoee and Eatonville are not in. They are not in Polk and Pierce counties??? They are in Orange County. Reply I used to take the bus from Florida Mall to the Sterling Casino at Port Canaveral, and one time I was sitting in the very back of the bus, in front of the motor, that was back there, and that sucker got so darn hot, I thought I was going to ignite, plus it was smoking, and filling up the bus on the way back to the Florida Mall from the port. Another time on the bus, this coming from the Sun Cruz a man had a heart attack on the bus, and one other time a motorcycle hit the back of our bus, as we were traveling down the Beach Line and he went off into a ditch. Also, a very big heavy lady on the Sterling Casino Boat fell from the third deck on the inside of the boat, down and hit a hard small marble table, and the hard floor, as she fell between some brass railings, right outside the ladies restroom, that I had went inside to, and as I came out, I heard gasping and looked down, where people were pointing and saw her on the floor. They got witness statements from everyone that saw her fall, and everyone had a different version, some said she was drunk, others said she got dizzy, and others said she jumped over the brass railings……???

The doctor upped my blood pressure meds, but it is still up to high. I read where dark chocolate is good to lower blood pressure, and decided to give it a try. I bought a big intense dark chocolate bar with hardly any sugar in it, and thought I will eat a couple of squares a day, like this article I read suggested to lower blood pressure. Then I thought I will melt the two squares in a cup in the microwave, and then pour it into my skim fat free milk, and stir it up and drink it as chocolate milk. I melted the chocolate squares in a cup, and poured it in a glass of cold milk and what a mess I made! I wasn’t expecting that to happen, as it clumped up and went solid and was gross. Then my brilliant husband said to put the milk mess back in the microwave, and it worked….just didn’t expect it to clump up when I added it to the milk. Surprised me really.

Apparently almost anything will go in this city….alcohol establishments RIGHT NEXT TO CHURCHES, GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS, PARKS, and closer to schools…When this ordinance that Mayor Kilsheimer, Commissioner Kyle Becker, and Commissioner Diane Velazquez voted for and approved, with their majority vote on the council, and changed the existing alcohol ordinance, they got it all wrong! Commissioner Doug Bankson and Commmissioner Billie Dean did not vote for these ridiculous alcohol changes!……….. No matter which gambling boats we went out on, it was always an adventure. After seeing these photos and reading about having to jump overboard into the frigid waters, I am thankful that did not happen to us, and I don’t think I care to go out on any of them after seeing this happen. Also a 42 year old lady did die, around 10 pm, from some cause related to her jumping into the water due to the fire on the casino boat. So sad. Reply Reply Reply Then I saw about a nice big brick two story home that they said was near Apopka, west of the 429, then they said near Ocoee, that caught on fire, along the shore of Lake Apopka on Walker Dr. That was a nice home that was burnt. Plus an Apopka ambulance was T-boned by a sedan at Old Dixie Highway and Errol Parkway, and it left the ambulance turned over on its side, and three people were injured, not sure who. Mama Mia Now according to this article, by Scott Maxwell that I am using as a reference, it is different in Orange County, as they have laws on the books that are referred to as “distance separation” laws, this being in unincorporated Orange County, according to Mr. Maxwell’s article, Orange Co. requires a distance of almost a mile, or 5000 feet, is what I understand it to be. The Orange Co. Mayor, Ms. Jacobs, is trying to compromise between the existing liquor store owners who want the existing distance to be left alone and remain separated by 5000 feet, and is offering a compromise possibly of downing it to 3,500 feet of separation between liquor stores to please people wanting to open a liquor store near other liquor stores, where they see a market to make themselves some money, and of course the existing owners of liquor stores are totally against that idea…….. January 14, 2018 at 5:53 pm Reply January 15, 2018 at 11:39 am January 14, 2018 at 7:13 pm Mama Mia I went to the doctor recently as a regular checkup and to get refills on my meds, and now I have caught a virus or cold of some kind, from the sick people at the doctor’s office, I suspect as they were coughing and looked sick, but I was not next to them. That irks me. Go to the doctor to try to keep healthy, and get sick from being there. I am not real sick, but still I have the sniffles, and feel a little chilled, with a sore throat. If you have to go to your doctor’s office waiting room, I suggest you wear one of those masks, even if they look stupid. You have entered an incorrect email address!

Google is not a legitimate arbiter

first_imgNews September 26, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Google is not a legitimate arbiter Europe – Central Asia How do you strike a balance between protection of privacy and the right to information? This is the question that search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing have had to address since 12 May, when the EUCJ issued its very controversial ruling in the case of Google v. Costeja.The ruling obliges search engines to purge their search results of links to content affecting an individual’s privacy if the individual so requests. It enshrines a right to be forgotten and turns private-sector companies like Google, Yahoo and Microsoft into arbiters of our fundamental freedoms.Google has been holding a series of public meetings on this subject in leading European capitals. Yesterday the California-based company’s advisory committee was meeting the public in Paris. The declared aim of these consultations is to define the rules for implementing the “right” to be removed from search results that stems from the EUCJ ruling.A commercial company that is not subject to any democratic control cannot be a legitimate arbiter. At the same time, national data protection agencies such as France’s National Commission for Information Technology and Freedoms (CNIL) – which are given the last word in any dispute between the search engine and the individual who wants to be forgotten – have neither the power nor competence to ensure a balance between privacy and freedom of information. It is up to legislators to determine this delicate balancing act.Reporters Without Borders and La Quadrature du Net have spent several weeks drafting a set of recommendations for the authorities that will allow respect for privacy to be reconciled with freedom of expression. The recommendations are also intended to provide ordinary citizens with a better understanding of what is at stake in the right to be forgotten, so that they, in turn, can press for a sustainable balance between these two fundamental rights.

Freddie Mac: Lessons Learned from the Crisis

first_img The mortgage servicing industry has become stronger and more efficient in a post-crisis world due to the efforts of servicers to delegate authority to make modification decisions and to offer modifications with more favorable terms to borrowers, such as step rate mortgages and principal forbearance, according to Yvette Gilmore, VP Single-Family Servicer Performance Management with Freddie Mac.Gilmore stated that Treasury’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) has played an important role in helping borrowers by setting industry standards to assist in a unified way.Nearly eight years after the crisis, the five lessons Gilmore said Freddie Mac has learned from the crisis are as follows:Lower paymentsEarlier borrower engagementReduced documentationSimpler programsMore feedbackPayment relief drives ongoing modification performance and is the biggest predictor of long-term success for borrowers, Gilmore said. And the earlier servicers can engage with a borrower, the better the chances of completing a modification and the greater chance it will perform better over time.“Together with our servicers we have helped nearly 1.2 million struggling homeowners avoid foreclosure since the crisis began in 2009,” Gilmore said. “Our serious delinquency rate—the percent of borrowers who are 90 days past due or in foreclosure—is at its lowest level in seven years. And an improving housing market and economic picture bode well for many homeowners who are underwater or struggling.”Freddie Mac is currently preparing for the “new normal” in mortgage servicing for 2017 and beyond, Gilmore said. The current outlook is for fewer underwater borrowers, rising mortgage interest rates, and “more localized patterns of booms and stress in the housing market and the economy as a whole.”The new normal includes making sure that loss mitigation programs continue to be effective for borrowers, which includes planning for a world without the government’s HAMP and Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), both of which are set to expire at the end of the year.These are important considerations we’re thinking through with our regulator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and the industry,” Gilmore wrote. “However, I think it’s important to note that the majority of modifications we complete today are through our proprietary programs.”Also to be considered in the era of the new normal, Gilmore said, is how to determine borrower eligibility—for example, when to require documentation and when a streamlined process is necessary.
