Any notion that Bitcoin was a safe haven have been put to bed by the coronavirus crash. Panicky investors have rushed to sell the crypto-currency rather than buy it. Its price has fallen from more than $10,000 to just over $6,000, punishing starry-eyed traders once again.That is why I prefer to put my money in a Stocks and Shares ISA. Yes, stock markets have also crashed. But I think this has thrown up a host of bargains, if you are brave enough to buy anything right now (apart from toilet roll). I am tempted by the Galliford Try Holdings (LSE: GFRD) share price, which has fallen 21% today, and Just Group (LSE: JUST), down around 13%.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…Galliford Try’s half-year report this morning showed the group posting a £16.6m statutory profit before tax, reversing a loss of £24.7m in the year before. That’s despite a drop of 8.2% in revenues, which fell from £728m to £668m.Galliford triesMarkets were no doubt disappointed by news that attempts to hit a divisional margin target of 2% in 2021 have now been pushed back to 2022. But at least the order book has held steady at £3.2bn, following a series of project wins.Galliford Try was hit hard by both Brexit and the collapse of fellow construction group Carillion. This forced it to scrap its dividend and launch a £150m rights issue, amid concerns about its balance sheet. However, with the turnaround under way, the share price was picking up steadily, until the coronavirus trauma. Now it has a market cap of just £123m, and trades at a measly valuation of just 1.2 times earnings.Today’s mixed results have been harshly punished, but that’s how it is when sentiment crashes. This could prove an exciting buy at today’s low, but we live in strange times and you would have to be brave to buy it.Just the jobFinancial services group Just Group looked like a bargain a year ago, when it traded at just 3.5 times earnings. It looks even cheaper given today’s share price mauling, as it now trades at just 3.1 times earnings.Today’s preliminary results showed IFRS profit before tax of £369m, turning round 2018’s loss of £86m. The turnaround was pinned on an “improved operating result and positive economic variances”. Total revenue climbed from £2.86bn to £3.83bn, despite a 12% fall in gross written premiums to £1.92bn.Just has also been through a tough time, like Galliford, but for different reasons. It was hit hard by a regulatory clampdown on sales of equity release lifetime mortgages. This was a key product and sparked a £219m regulatory capital cost in the second half of 2019. New business margins have also fallen, as it puts capital discipline above sales, but capital coverage now stands at 141%, and is set to rise further.Just Group’s stock is another bargain for the brave, with a price-to-book value of just 0.4. These are wild times for investors, but I reckon both firms merit further due diligence, and a place on your watchlist.

TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Curate Diocese of Nebraska [Episcopal News Service] The key legislation that will enable women to be appointed and consecrated as bishops in the Church of England has returned to General Synod for further debate and final drafting during its Feb. 6-9 group of sessions in London.During the past 18 months the legislation has been given the nod by 42 of the 44 diocesan synods throughout England, but it now requires a two-thirds majority in each of the three houses of General Synod – bishops, clergy and laity – for it to be adopted. At least one third of members are new to synod since the July 2010 debate when the measure was first approved in its current form.Also since that debate, a draft Code of Practice has been drawn up outlining provisions for those opposed to women’s ordination, such as providing male alternatives for traditionalists unable to accept the authority of a female bishop. The draft code can only be formalized and further debated by synod once the measure has been passed. Should the legislation not be amended during its current meeting, the measure is expected to come before synod for a final vote in July.The full text of the measure is available here.Bishop Nigel Stock of St. Edmundsbury & Ipswich, chair of the working group that prepared the draft code, delivered an opening address to synod on Feb. 7. He said that the working group had found “two knotty issues” in developing the code – how male bishops who would minister to those opposed to women bishops would be chosen and how they would function. Opponents to the code have objected that such an arrangement would undermine the ministry of women bishops and create a two-tier episcopate.Christina Rees, a lay member of General Synod and former chair of women-bishop advocacy group Women and the Church, or WATCH, asked if the working group had sought examples of good practice from other places in the Anglican Communion where women already exercise episcopal ministry, and if so what did the group discover and how did they use that information.Stock explained that the group had not explored such examples “because nowhere else [in the communion] has a measure like the one we’re proposing” and that the working group didn’t have time. “When we come to the point of implementing this [code] I think that would be fruitful,” he said.Four provinces – the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, Anglican Church of Canada, the Anglican Church of Australia, and the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia –have women serving as bishops. In addition, the extraprovincial Episcopal Church of Cuba is led by a female bishop.Eleven additional provinces have approved the ordination of women bishops but have yet to appoint or elect one.Bishop Geralyn Wolf of Rhode Island, who in 1996 became the fifth woman elected as a bishop in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, participated in a panel discussion sponsored by WATCH in London on Feb. 6 to coincide with the opening day of synod. Others on the panel included Bishop Susan Moxley of Nova Scotia, Canada, and the Rev. Rose Hudson-Wilkin, chaplain to the speaker in the U.K. House of Commons.When it was suggested that the synod debates may be perceived as archaic by many Americans, Wolf told ENS that while some may view the contents of the debate in that way, “the challenge is fresh and timely: how will we be different together? I suspect that if we could find an answer to that question we would truly experience the kingdom of God.”Assuming all stages of the legislative process proceed without delay, the first woman bishop could not be consecrated in England until at least 2014, since the measure also would require approval by the U.K. Parliament. Parliamentary approval is necessary because the measure effectively changes English law as the Church of England is an officially established Christian church with Queen Elizabeth II as its supreme governor. With the celebration of her Diamond Jubilee this year, synod members are reminded that Queen Elizabeth, a woman, has been head of the Church of England for 60 years.On Feb. 6, a motion filed in the House of Commons by Labour Member of Parliament for Birkenhead Frank Field encouraged General Synod to move forward in passing the legislation recognizing that there is “overwhelming support” for women bishops.In a separate press release, Field said that a group of MPs are calling on the Church of England to “get on with it.” The parliamentary motion, the release says, “aims to prevent members of the General Synod employing delaying tactics to prevent the decision coming to parliament for approval. Any such move will have little if any support from MPs who wish for the consecrations to proceed as quickly as possible.”The General Synod began its steady course toward allowing women in the episcopate when in July 2005 it passed a motion to remove the legal obstacles to ordaining women bishops.In July 2006, synod called for the practical and legislative arrangements of admitting women to the episcopate to be explored. It also called for the formation of a legislative drafting group to prepare a draft measure and amending canon necessary to remove the legal obstacles.At its July 2008 group of sessions, synod agreed that it was the “wish of its majority … for women to be admitted to the episcopate” and affirmed that “special arrangements be available, within the existing structures of the Church of England, for those who as a matter of theological conviction will not be able to receive the ministry of women as bishops or priests.”General Synod voted in February 2009 to send a draft measure on women bishops to a revision committee so it could rework the legislation.The revision committee met 16 times beginning in May 2009 and considered 114 submissions from synod members, and a further 183 submissions from others. In May 2010, the committee published its 142-page report, which offered a detailed analysis of the draft legislation in time for the July 2010 synod debate and vote.The long path towards accepting women’s ordained ministry in the Anglican Communion began in 1920 when the Lambeth Conference called (via Resolutions 47-52) for the diaconate of women to be restored “formally and canonically,” adding that it should be recognized throughout the communion.The first woman priest in the communion, Li Tim-Oi, was ordained in Hong Kong in 1944. Due to outside pressure she resigned her license, but not her holy orders, following World War II. In 1971, the Rev. Jane Hwang and the Rev. Joyce Bennett were ordained priests in the Diocese of Hong Kong, though their ministries were not recognized in many parts of the Anglican Communion.In 1974, there was an “irregular” ordination of 11 women in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, which officially authorized women’s priestly ordination two years later.Bishop Barbara Harris, now retired suffragan of Massachusetts, was elected in 1988 and became the Anglican Communion’s first woman bishop after her consecration and ordination in 1989.The Rt. Rev. Penelope Jamieson made history in 1989 when she was elected as bishop of the Diocese of Dunedin, New Zealand, and became the first woman to serve as a diocesan bishop in the Anglican Communion.The Rt. Rev. Mary Adelia McLeod, who was ordained a priest in 1980, was consecrated in 1993 as bishop of the Diocese of Vermont, becoming the first woman diocesan bishop in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church. She retired in 2001.The Rt. Rev. Canon Nerva Cot Aguilera became the first woman Anglican bishop in Latin America when she was consecrated bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Church of Cuba in June 2007.The Church of England opened the priesthood to women in November 1992, five years after women were first ordained to the diaconate. More than 5,000 women have been ordained as priests in England since 1994 and today they represent nearly 40 percent of all clergy.The General Synod is the national assembly of the Church of England which came into being in 1970 replacing an earlier body known as the Church Assembly. It continues a tradition of synodical government which, in England, has its origins in the medieval period.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Press Release Service February 8, 2012 at 5:48 am The cry goes up how long…a decision must be made now. We need to stop making excuses fir the inertia that infects so many churches (I supplied in 30+ London churches over the period of15 mons and half were dead). Now as a parish priest in 2 rural places the synod is a blurr (if even that to my folk) and their machinations are seen as costly, wasteful and disconnected. I am present as an exhibitor and feel the whole thing prowls around like a lion seeking to devour someone. I might add that as a liberal catholic who loves Mass, Mary, Walsingham, Benediction and Confession, and rejoices in priests and bishops of all sorts that are faithful to the gospel and the Anglican tradition, not to forget their people, fully know the feeling of isolation is real for liberal as well as trad catholics. Indeed Catholics within the C of E might well introduce novenas, rosary etc as Fresh Expressions and bring it to life. Even in the villages I find people love the buildings but do not come to church, and all have reasons..usually clergy based issues. Let’s get on with it, meaning the gospel, and share the faith of Him who loves us.

The intervention by dieterdietz.org immerses itself in an evocative context of a 200-year-old Chestnut tree and a very tall Sycamore in the midst of the vineyards of Chigny (Switzerland) that hide a cluster of carefully proportioned houses dating from the 19th century, which are perfectly integrated into the landscape. The view opens towards the Lake of Geneva and the French Alps, with the impressive Mont Blanc blurring against the sky: a perfect setting for a very unique project. The client requested a design which fostered the coexistence of shared and individual living spaces to provide an opportunity to live independently within a community of friends and their families. In response to the brief, the refurbishment of one of the 19th-century buildings, formerly a press-house, and the design of a new house was proposed.Save this picture!© Joël TettamantiThe project follows the prevailing characteristics of this rural site, where solitary volumes in conglomerates provide space and shelter for everyday activities. By adding a house and following the typology of a barn, a further gravitational mass has been added to the interplay of volumes among the trees. The garden remains the locus of identity, where the refurbished Pressoir (press-house) and the new Grange (barn) articulate an interstitial court in the uninterrupted landscape. Chestnuts will fall close to a new roof, built entirely of nano-film coated solar-cells that provide energy for the new and the refurbished houses.Save this picture!© Joël TettamantiThe layout of each house is structured around a generous-sized room that serves as a social hub for the people living in both houses. Thus, the two houses can be inhabited as one common place. Likewise, each house can be individually occupied, as both Grange and Pressoir are suited as work-and- living environments with a plan that plays on interstitial thresholds of voids, doors, curtains and sliding panels that gradually negotiate between public and private spheres. In their construction principles, the houses rely on a basic palette of materials, which accentuates their genetic similarities and differences. The press-house is fully refurbished while maintaining its original structure, walls and carpentry. Now exposed and with visible signs of age, these structural elements tell the story of the building. New openings follow the proportions of existing ones, literally being drawn around the facades.Save this picture!© Joël TettamantiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Joël TettamantiThe exoskeleton of the Grange embodies a reverberation of the exposed roof truss of the Pressoir. In structural consequence, the logical order is reversed and primarily exposed steel is completed by a timber secondary structure. In architect Dieter Dietz’ words: “These houses offer a frame for the living. Like a canvas is drawn into space that awaits life to complete itself. Users will further define visual and spatial articulation.” From the inside out, the two buildings orient themselves towards the Lemanic landscape, opening views onto the vineyards and the surrounding orchard. Over time, they will be fully shaded by trees and growing plants and flowers that climb between the roofs, and reflect the blossoming fusion between housing development and nature.

A competition has launched that aims to raise £20,000 for a cancer charity by offering people the chance to win £1m in time for Christmas.Andy White and Carl Davies set up the Win One Million Pounds competition after both of them had parents and other family members develop forms of cancer.The entry fee is £2 per ticket with multiple entries allowed, and requires the answering of a multiple choice question. The closing date for entries is December 21st 2017. Entries are limited to 600,000, and if they hit this target they will donate £20,000 to a cancer charity chosen by the winner.If the competition does not meet its goal of selling 600,000 tickets, a draw will still take place with a 20% deduction from the sales going to cover costs and the charitable donation with the whole of the remaining 80% being the prize. Depending on the success of the project, the pair hopes to run the main competition on a regular basis as well as offering free to enter cash prize competitions. 91 total views, 1 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Melanie May | 14 September 2017 | News Win a million competition aims to raise £20,000 for cancer charity Tagged with: competition Fundraising ideas 92 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

China has since confirmed his arrest and charged him with endangering China’s national security. Yang is detained in Beijing under “residential surveillance in a designated location” (RSDL), a special detention system that may last up to six months and allows the use of torture and other forms of mistreatment.Yang, who was an employee of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs for 10 years, became an Australian citizen in 2000. Since then, he was very vocal against the Chinese regime and advocated relentlessly for democracy in China. Followed by more than 130,000 people on Twitter, he is notable for his articles on prominent international affairs magazine The Diplomat. Prior to his arrest, Yang was teaching at Columbia University in New York.“Yang Hengjun has committed no crime in commenting on the Chinese society and politics, which makes his arrest totally unjustified and abusive, said Cédric Alviani, the head of Reporters Without Borders’ (RSF) East Asia Bureau. We call on the international community to ramp up the pressure on Beijing so that they would immediately release Yang and all other detained journalists and bloggers”.In March 2011, he was followed by three men at Guangzhou airport and went missing shortly after.
