3 high-yielding FTSE 250 shares

first_img We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

The FTSE 250 can be a very good index for finding UK shares with high yields and the potential to grow. Here are three I like, but at the moment, one really stands out to me.Investing in renewablesI like the look of is Renewables Infrastructure Group (LSE: TRIG). It’s an investment trust dedicated to assets generating electricity from renewable sources. With increasingly ambitious net zero targets, I think there are long-term tailwinds behind companies that invest in renewables.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…The key, however, is to have a management team that can avoid buying assets at inflated prices. Overpaying is a big risk now that oil majors, for example, are starting to develop green assets.Established in 2013, the Renewables Infrastructure Group has a headstart on other companies. Its team is also much more specialised and has more experience.Its assets are mostly in the UK and Northern Europe/Germany, these are all politically stable places, which will make it easier for the company to operate there, as opposed to a frontier region.With a dividend yield of 5.2%, this is a high-yielding FTSE 250 share that I’ll consider adding to my own portfolio.2 FTSE 250 shares from the same industryIG Group Holdings (LSE: IGG) is a spread betting and stockbroking company. Volatile markets last year helped it perform strongly, but the flip side of that is it makes growing against those tough comparisons harder this year.Despite that, I think there are reasons for optimism. The company is pursuing an active growth strategy. It is investing more in its existing business and acquiring companies overseas. That should help grow the spread better’s revenues and profits.The shares have a yield of 5%. That puts them well above average versus many other FTSE 250 shares. I think I’d potentially add the shares both for price growth and for income. That’s especially the case as the stock is  quite cheap on a P/E of just 13.But I’d avoid buying the shares if there was increased speculation about a tightening of regulations, which is always a possibility and one of the main concerns with investing in this particular company.The stronger one? CMC Markets (LSE: CMCX) is a competitor to IG Group. Overall, I think it might be slightly stronger. It’s owner-managed, has more international diversification already (offering stockbroking in Australia, for example) and has its own technology. It sells this on a ‘white label’ basis to other financial companies.Its strong trading from 2020 shows no signs of abating so far, despite less market volatility this year. A CMC Markets update earlier this year saw it lifting its full-year guidance following a “strong” fourth-quarter performance.And in an update for the period from 1 January to 24 March, the company said it has continued to perform “very strongly“.It also offers good value with a P/E of 14, broadly in line with competitor IG Group.What would put me off would be if spend per customer dropped, or overall client numbers dropped. These figures are usually included in the updates and there’s a risk flatter markets may lead to clients dropping out.With a dividend yield of 4.23%, I consider it a high-yielding share. Of the three FTSE 250 shares, CMC Markets is the one I’d most likely add to my portfolio. I like its diversification and its strong management.

What does England’s Grand Slam mean for Women’s Six Nations?

first_imgEngland stormed to the Women’s Six Nations title – but questions are now being asked about the tournament going forward Champions: Sarah Hunter raises the Women’s Six Nations trophy (Getty Images) Rivalry: Wales defeated Ireland 24-5 in the final round (Getty Images)So how can the other nations close the gap? It’s hard to see them all going down the fully professional route but there are other things that would help.For a start, put structures in place not just to grow the game at grass-roots level but enhance elite performance.Listening to former internationals Fiona Steed, Lynne Cantwell and Jenny Murphy dissecting Ireland’s disappointing campaign on RTE Rugby, they suggest that the women’s 15s game in the country has gone backwards since they reached the World Cup semi-finals in 2014. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS What does England’s Grand Slam mean for Women’s Six Nations?Here are a few statistics from England’s Women’s Six Nations Grand Slam:278 points scored – 100 more than France and at least three times more than every other team.45 points conceded – less than half any other team, who all conceded more than 100.45 tries scored – the next best team in those stakes was France with 29 while no other side went beyond 13.Seven tries conceded – less than half any other team let in.Five try bonus-point wins, plus three extra points for completing the Grand Slam, put England 11 points clear at the top of the table with 28.center_img The dominance from England is quite phenomenal. They didn’t concede a single point in their last two games against Italy (55-0) and Scotland (80-0). In that Scotland match at Twickenham, England scored 12 tries and carried the ball for 1,521 metres – that’s more than Wales’ men managed (ten tries, 1,480 metres) in their entire Grand Slam campaign.One of many: wing Jess Breach runs in a try against Scotland at Twickenham (Getty Images)Even the highly-anticipated clash against France in round two was one-sided, with England 24-0 up at half-time and winning 41-26 despite a second-half comeback from the visitors.The concern going forward is whether the other teams in the championship can catch up with England as few want to see this sort of procession every year.People love sport for the unpredictable and unexpected; with one team so far ahead of the others, the Women’s Six Nations doesn’t have that.Fans’ favourite: Marlie Packer with supporters at Sandy Park after the Italy match (Getty Images)The crowds for this year’s tournament were brilliant and brought the sport to a new audience, but how many will keep coming back if they know the result before walking through the turnstile?And do England really benefit? Yes, the players want to succeed and lift trophies, but if they are not truly tested in this annual competition, the chances of them coming unstuck against better teams – notably the Black Ferns – at the World Cup increase because they will not be accustomed to those high-pressure situations. And the World Cup is the ultimate goal.The likelihood is that England will get better too. This Six Nations came only a few weeks after the squad went professional. Next year they will have been training full-time for 12 months, with those improvements in skills and conditioning hard for other nations to match. Improved domestic competitions in Ireland, Scotland and Wales would certainly be a step forward.The focus on sevens is another issue. Yes, sevens often delivers its own funding because it is an Olympic sport but this should not be to the detriment of the 15s game – surely countries want both formats of the game to be successful?The scheduling doesn’t help in this regard. France were without key players for the England match because they had been involved in the Women’s World Sevens Series event in Australia the previous weekend.Sevens call: France were without key players against England (Getty Images)These events shouldn’t clash in the calendar for it would allow teams to pick their best squads for both events and ensure they got maximum exposure. This is true for some of the men’s teams too, with Americas Rugby Championship sides denuded of players involved in the Sevens Series.Finally, and perhaps most contentiously, should the Women’s Six Nations exactly replicate the men’s? Would putting England v France on the final weekend create more drama than having the likely title decider on the second weekend simply because it matched the men’s fixture? Would a team like Spain be more competitive than Scotland? England were sublime in winning this year’s Women’s Six Nations, but there are plenty of questions for the competition to ponder going forward.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

Disciplinary panel finds Albany Bishop William Love broke church law…

first_img Albany Bishop William Love celebrates the Eucharist at St. George’s Episcopal Church in Schenectady, New York, in November 2015. Photo: St. George’s Episcopal Church[Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. William Love, bishop of Albany, violated his ordination vows and The Episcopal Church’s canon law when he banned same-sex marriage in his diocese in 2018, a disciplinary hearing panel found in a decision issued late on Oct. 2.The unanimous ruling, conducted under the church’s Title IV disciplinary process, refutes Love’s arguments – articulated by his counsel at a virtual hearing in June – that Love had not committed a canonical violation by prohibiting clergy from using the same-sex marriage rite approved for churchwide use by General Convention in 2018 because it was not a proposed revision to the Book of Common Prayer.The decision does not stipulate what consequences Love will face. The panel will schedule another hearing for Love and the church to offer proposals and will then issue an order, which could involve suspending or deposing Love – essentially stripping him of his ecclesiastical authority. In a letter to his diocese, Love said that hearing “will be scheduled within the month.”“While I am very disappointed and strongly disagree with the decision of the hearing panel … they have issued their judgement,” Love wrote. “Unfortunately, given the nature of this case, I have no reason to believe that appealing the hearing panel’s decision would result in any different outcome.“Whatever the final outcome, it will severely impact not only me and the ministry entrusted to me as bishop of Albany, but it will also seriously impact the life and ministry of the diocese. I continue to pray that somehow God will use all of this for his purposes.”Through the diocesan office, Love declined a request for additional comment.The hearing panel is composed of Rhode Island Bishop Nicholas Knisely as president, Assistant Bishop Jennifer Brooke-Davidson of the Diocese of Virginia, the Rev. Erik Larsen of the Diocese of Rhode Island, Melissa Perrin of the Diocese of Chicago and retired Southern Virginia Bishop Herman Hollerith IV.At the June hearing, the panel heard arguments from representatives of Love and The Episcopal Church, who did not dispute the facts of the case – or the theological validity of same-sex marriage – but debated whether Love’s actions had violated church canon law. The church, represented by lawyer Paul Cooney, argued that Love, by directing his clergy to continue complying with a diocesan canon prohibiting participation in same-sex marriages, had violated General Convention Resolution B012, which stipulates that “provision will be made for all couples desiring to use these [same-sex] marriage liturgies in their local congregation.”The Rev. Chip Strickland, who represented Love and also serves as the Diocese of Albany’s chancellor, argued that Resolution B012 does not hold canonical status and, therefore, Love had not committed a canonical violation. Strickland asserted that authorized trial rites like the same-sex marriage liturgy in question only have canonical status if they are proposed revisions to the Book of Common Prayer, and that B012 does not fall under that category.The hearing panel disagreed, saying the “plain language of the resolution” makes it a proposed revision to the Book of Common Prayer, even if it lacks “the magic words” explicitly identifying it as such. B012, the panel said, is canonical and therefore mandatory. By ignoring this mandate, Love violated church canons and his ordination vows.The panel also refuted Love’s argument that B012 is inconsistent with the Book of Common Prayer, which still defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman in its catechism and marriage rubrics. The preface of the marriage rite in the Book of Common Prayer, the panel said, only applies to that particular rite and not the additional rites authorized by General Convention, and the rubrics to the catechism describe it as “an outline for instruction” that is “not meant to be a complete statement of belief and practice.”Love’s 2018 pastoral directive banning same-sex marriages remains posted on the Diocese of Albany’s “Marriage/B012” webpage.History of the caseIn 2009, General Convention passed several resolutions seeking to make the church more welcoming to LGBTQ people, including by developing liturgies for blessing same-sex unions. Those liturgies were approved for use by General Convention in 2012.Then, in June 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex civil marriage was legal in all 50 states. The 78th General Convention had just begun in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the bishops and deputies proceeded to approve the trial use of rites for same-sex marriage ceremonies that had been drafted by the Task Force on the Study of Marriage.Love was one of eight diocesan bishops who, leading up to the 79th General Convention, still refused to allow use of the trial rites in their dioceses. Proponents of marriage equality sought a compromise that would ensure that same-sex couples had access to the rites in all domestic dioceses, even if bishops were opposed.Bishop William Love of the Diocese of Albany tells General Convention on July 11, 2018, during the House of Bishops debate on Resolution B012, that passing the measure would force him to violate his ordination vows. Photo: Episcopal Church videoDuring its July 2018 meeting in Austin, Texas, General Convention passed Resolution B012, which essentially allowed those bishops to opt out of the process altogether, by asking an outside bishop, as necessary, to provide pastoral support when couples requested use of the trial rites. Though some supporters of same-sex marriage questioned whether a bishop’s involvement is even needed for individual weddings, the resolution passed with an overwhelming majority, including the backing of some of the former holdout bishops.Facing a Dec. 2, 2018, deadline for implementing B012, the conservative bishops took a range of approaches. Virgin Islands Bishop Edward Ambrose Gumbs, for example, simply told clergy in his diocese to begin using the new marriage rites. Others, such as Dallas Bishop George Sumner and Springfield Bishop Daniel Martins, advised their congregations that bishops from neighboring dioceses would provide oversight if the rites were requested.Love and Florida Bishop John Howard were the most vocal opponents of B012 during the General Convention debate, though Howard, too, ultimately offered clergy in his diocese a path toward offering the rites, with oversight from another bishop.Only Love outright refused to honor B012. In a Nov. 10, 2018, letter to his diocese, Love said he would not allow same-sex couples to be married by priests in the Diocese of Albany.The letter cited Bible verses from Leviticus to Romans to support Love’s belief that sexual intimacy between two men or two women was never God’s plan. He called homosexuality “sinful and forbidden” and cast the long-simmering Episcopal debate over same-sex marriage as a kind of existential crisis for the church, which he argued had been “hijacked” by a powerful, secular “Gay Rights Agenda.”Love also said implementing B012 would require him to violate his vows of ordination, adding that others in his diocese are just as adamant in opposing same-sex marriage. The Diocese of Albany is based in New York’s capital city, though most of its 130 congregations are in less-populated communities between the Canadian border and the Catskill Mountains.The reaction from top Episcopal leaders was swift. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry issued a statement two days after Love’s letter. In it, Curry affirmed the church’s commitment to full inclusion of LGBTQ members while respecting the conscience of those who disagree with the church’s policy on marriage.At the same time, Curry said, all clergy are required to “act in ways that reflect and uphold the discernment and decisions of the General Convention of the church.”The developments sent shock waves through the diocese, with supporters and opponents of Love’s decision both uncertain what would happen next. Curry followed up in January 2019 by temporarily restricting part of Love’s ministry as bishop because Love’s “conduct in this regard may constitute a canonical offense.”Then in September 2019, while the House of Bishops was meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota, church leaders informed Love he had been referred to the hearing panel for potential discipline under The Episcopal Church’s Title IV canon.In an interview with Episcopal News Service during the House of Bishops’ September 2019 meeting, Love defended his actions and said he was thankful that he would have an opportunity to make his case before the panel.“What I tried to do as best I can, by the grace of God, is to be faithful and obedient to that which I believe the Lord has called me to, even though it sometimes can be very difficult, and sometimes it’s not politically correct,” he said.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Ireland beat South Africa at Croke Park in Dublin

first_imgSaturday Nov 28, 2009 Ireland beat South Africa at Croke Park in Dublin Dublin will celebrate tonight as their Ireland team beat South Africa 15-10 at a cold and misty Croke Park earlier today. Flyhalf Jonathan Sexton was the hero of the day as he showed great temperament to kick all the points for his side, slotting five penalty kicks in terrible weather conditions.The irony of the match is that it was the Springboks two most powerful assets all year the lineout and the boot of Morne Steyn that let them down.They did score the only try of the match though, with Schalk Burger gliding through in the first half, setting up a 10-6 half time lead for the visitors.Sexton kicked Ireland back in front in the second half, following a few unforced errors from the Boks, as well as one or two lapses in discipline.South Africa dominated the scrums, but it was the Irish forwards who got the better of the break down as they turned over Springbok ball repeatedly. Rob Kearney at the back was also sensational for the home side, showing what a class act he is under the high ball in particular.The conditions were ultimately dealt with better by the home side, but it came down to Ireland slotting their kicks, and South Africa missing theirs.“You have to kick your penalties. They took their chances but we didn’t,” said captain John Smit.“We did a lot of damage in the scrum and that gave us a huge amount of impetus. But our lineouts and kicking let us down but ironically those have been our strengths this year.”Springbok coach Peter De Villiers has confessed that fatigue played a part after a successful, yet exhausting year. “We want to honour rugby and do the best we can,” he said.“If we’d picked the second team people would have thought we’re looking down on them but maybe we should have rested a few senior players. We must regroup and build on what we’ve achieved this year.”Brian ODriscoll reflected on how pleased he is that the Ireland team have turned things around, considering they lost 22-3 to New Zealand a year ago.“This win was very pleasing – it’s all about continuing to progress,” said O’Driscoll.”We were in a dark place this time last year and we did a lot of soul searching and there was huge honesty. To turn it around as quickly as we have done is a huge credit to everyone involved, not just players but management too.“Im glad to come out on the right side of a result. The last three times weve been good enough to win in Dublin. Now the pressures on us to go down there (to South Africa) and pick up a scalp.”Following the match in Dublin, South Africa have been named IRB Team of the Year, while Ireland coach Declan Kidney was named IRB Coach of the Year.“It’s been a huge year for us and to top it off with a recognition like this, to secure the top prize is massive. It was a huge ambition of many of the guys to beat the British & Irish Lions, it was a goal to be victorious so that was a great highlight for us during the year,” said Smit.Ireland themselves have played ten, won nine, and drawn one this year.“I don’t know what to say really, the team have been superb over the last 12 months, said Kidney.“I feel my role is overstated, I haven’t made a tackle all year! But for my family putting up with me and the players putting up with me even more I’d like to accept it on their behalf.” Time: 08:42ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

If the Saudi authorities have good reasons that turn out to justify his detention they should make them known. Otherwise al-Raouchan should be released as soon as possible,” said the worldwide press freedom organisation.”We are all the more concerned because after six days in custody, we still do not know what charges there are against him and he has still not been allowed to see a lawyer,” it added.The authorities have so far refused to confirm they are holding the editor. Some of his colleagues believe he is being held because of his commitment to Saudis held by the United States at Guantanamo, Cuba, as well as recent articles in the weekly magazine, in which he urged the authorities to work harder to secure their release. last_img read more

Photo credit: Taylor MartynFuller Theological Seminary, the world’s largest multi-denominational institution for theological graduate education, today announces the launch of Fuller studio an innovative and interactive e-resource sharing exclusive content at no cost for individuals in pursuit of deeply formed spiritual lives.Fuller studio in its debut launch, has been given an extraordinary opportunity to premiere an exclusive 20-minute film, Bono & Eugene Peterson: The Psalms, documenting the unique relationship between this notable activist and lead singer of U2 and cofounder of the ONE Campaign, and the renowned author of the translation of the Bible into contemporary language, The Message. The film revolves around their common interest in the Psalms and is supported on the studio site by a wealth of reflections from Fuller’s world-class faculty—curating forward-thinking theological resources and not delivering flat content from academic classrooms. Bono and Eugene Peterson’s conversation captures the essence of that kind of dialogue on spirituality.In association with Fourth Line Films David Taylor director of Fuller’s Brehm Texas (center for worship, theology, and the arts) and associate professor of theology and culture, delivers a conversation between Peterson and Bono as they reflect on their relationship. Taylor, a friend of Peterson’s, desired to bring Peterson and Bono together to discuss the Psalms, knowing Bono’s inspiration from The Message, and the visit took place at Peterson’s home with Taylor moderating the exchange that unfolded and was captured on film. This added bonus to the public launch of FULLER studio is a perfect demonstration of the content ethos, aesthetic, and categories of Story, Theology, and Voice that the studio will curate and offer at no cost on a global platform that will be a respected place for civil discourse on spiritual matters. The world needs a space that Fuller Theological Seminary believes it is called to create—a place that can deepen conversation and discussion on life and faith, God and spirituality.This film, along with a wealth of other material including videos, podcasts, reflections, stories, images, embodies the goal of Fuller studio: to provide resources for individuals in pursuit of deeply formed spiritual lives. Fuller studio will house resources for individual, small group, and congregational use, drawing from its outstanding faculty and the award-winning Fuller magazine—as well as from a wider circle of voices around the country and the world, such as the conversation between Peterson, Bono, and Taylor.Fuller Seminary President Mark Labberton shares his excitement about the launch of FULLER studio, believing it will “open doors of exploration, thought, discovery, and engagement for all kinds of people in all kinds of settings—both in and outside the church?’Fuller studio users will have access to previews and downloads of introductory chapters of newly released books; teasers and featurettes for new productions; film and book study guides; and original material such as a behind-the-scenes series called in Ordinary Time of the artists, theologians, and activists that compose Fuller’s worldwide community network. It will also draw upon rich existing material from its 70-year history that has, heretofore, been accessible only by students and faculty. This openness is possible because of a combination of new technology and global connectivity: “It is my experience that people eagerly respond to a robust conversation around spirituality, which is only enhanced by global conversation partners and contributors. FULLER studio opens the doors of our considerable resources, inviting into conversation a burst of new voices and perspectives,” says Lauralee Farrer award-winning director and filmmaker who serves as the new project’s chief content and creative leader.Fuller studio is one of Fuller’s most innovative ventures of the 21. century, leveraging its global brand as a deeply theological, interdenominational thought leader to extend its reach beyond graduate education to more fully serve the needs of a world in deep pursuit of God and faith. This evolution of Fuller Seminary from traditional education to e-resource provider for spiritual formation is driven by a spirit of innovation central to Fuller’s ethos since its founding in 1947.The studio is accessible by any mobile device, and in years to come will employ new technologies and delivery systems and expand deeper into more geographies, languages, and partnerships to continue to resource those in pursuit of deeply formed spiritual lives.About Fuller Fuller Seminary, the largest multi-denominational seminary in the world, provides professional, graduate-level education through its schools of theology, psychology, and intercultural studies.
