The decision did not surprise City economists, who had widely expected the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to uphold the status quo for another month. Although the economy grew relatively strongly in the second quarter, recent surveys have pointed to a slowdown in the pace of growth. Interest rates have been at 0.5 per cent since March 2009, though the central bank said it would pause asset purchases back in February 2010. However, the minutes of the MPC’s September meeting – to be published on 22 September – are anticipated to be closely watched. Sharelast_img read more

Why I’d start buying FTSE 100 shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

But if you’ve got some cash set aside, I think now could be a brilliant time to start investing, especially in some of the big FTSE 100 stocks.This might seem a strange view to take during the current crisis. But history suggests that we will get through this. And when we do, we’ll need most of the same products and services we were buying before the lockdown began.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…Today I want to share three tips from the Motley Fool for investing during a bear market. If you’re thinking about buying FTSE 100 shares, I think these will get you off to a great start.Don’t try to time the FTSE 100On Monday last week, the FTSE 100 dropped below 5,000 for the first time since 2009. On Tuesday, the FTSE rose by 9.1% – the second biggest one-day gain on record.So is the market rising or falling? I don’t know. In my experience, a market crash is often followed by a period of volatility, when share prices bounce around a lot. We may see some false dawns before the real recovery begins.My suggestion is that you don’t try to time the market. I’d just start buying now.Over the last 35 years, market crashes have always been a great time to buy the FTSE 100. The big crashes in 1987, 1999, and 2008 were all followed by strong recoveries, even though things seemed grim at the time.As long as you have a long-term view, I think the risks of buying today are pretty low.Buy stocks you can hold for yearsI’m sitting on some big paper losses after this month’s crash, but I’ve not sold any shares and I’m not too worried. Over time, I’m confident that most of the companies I own will recover.I can afford to take this view because I intend to hold my shares for many years, ideally forever.This is one of the secrets of the stock market. In the short term, it appears to be unpredictable and risky. But over many years, shares generally rise. Over the last 100 years or so, the UK stock market has returned an average of about 8% each year. That’s much better than cash or bonds.I only buy dividend stocksHowever, I only buy shares that pay a dividend. There are a couple of reasons for this.Firstly, dividend payouts are generally much more stable than share prices. In my experience, it’s much easier to hold onto shares during a market crash if your dividends keep coming.The current crisis is an exception – many FTSE 100 dividends have been cancelled. But I expect most of these payouts to be resumed within a year or two, as things start to return to normal.Another advantage of income stocks is that I can use my dividends to buy more shares. In turn, these will pay dividends too. Over time, this reinvestment (known as ‘compounding’) can lead to very big gains with very little effort.For example, a £10k investment with a yield of 5% that’s reinvested over 10 years would be worth £16,288. But if you withdrew the 5% yield each year, you’d only get a total of £10,500.Compounding was described by Albert Einstein as the eighth wonder of the world. I believe it’s a great reason to start buying FTSE 100 shares today. Roland Head has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Photo: Diocese of Chester[Diocese of Chester] The Rt. Rev. Libby Lane – the first female bishop in the history of the Church of England – was formally installed as the eighth bishop of Stockport at Chester Cathedral on International Women’s Day, Sunday, March 8.More than 1,900 people from across the county of Cheshire attended the installation, which was part of a service of Choral Evensong.The occasion started with a procession and the choir singing the Introit, followed by Bishop of Birkenhead Keith Sinclair welcoming Lane and inviting others to express their greetings.Bishop of Chester Peter Forster then invited Dean of Chester Gordon McPhate to install Lane as the bishop of Stockport, a suffragan (assistant) bishop in the Diocese of Chester.Lane took her place in her stall and the dean called for the blessing of God to rest upon her in all her duty and charge. She was presented with her pastoral staff and welcomed by the civic and faith communities from across the Diocese of Chester. During the service she preached on the theme of the confidence that humans have, knowing that they are loved by God.Among the guests were: the chief executive officer of Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council; the mayors of Trafford, Tameside, Cheshire East, Stockport, and Chester boroughs; and the High Sheriffs and Lord Lieutenants of Cheshire and Greater Manchester.The installation marked the formal start of Lane’s new ministry in the diocese. She said: “I treasure the remarkable welcome extended to me in my new ministry as bishop of Stockport by people across the Diocese of Chester.“The service of installation during evensong at the cathedral felt like a homecoming. It was wonderful that so many wanted to share that occasion, and I particularly extend my appreciation to those who could not be present because requests to attend outstripped even the cathedral’s capacity, but who supported me in prayer nonetheless. Our whole family is very grateful for the love and support that we have received.“I look forward now to settling into this new ministry. On the day of my announcement I expressed my gratitude – to the Diocese of Chester for the confidence placed in me, to those who have gone before me, to God for His faithfulness to us, to Christ, whose love for me is the source of all am and all I will be doing. I continue to feel deeply grateful for the honor of this calling and the privilege of exercising it in this place.“Expectations are high, and I too am excited by the possibilities and challenges ahead. I echo what I said in my statement at my announcement – the church faces wonderful opportunities, to proclaim afresh, in this generation, the Good News of Jesus and to build His Kingdom. I am delighted to be engaging with that task in an area I know and love and among people I value so highly. But I do know I’ll need people to be patient and understanding – about the time it will take for me to address all that is already waiting for me, and for the mistakes I will inevitably make on the way. So I ask for continued prayer – God our Father, hear our prayer for all your faithful people, that, each in our vocation and ministry may be an instrument of your love, and give to us the needful gifts of grace.”Lane, 48, was previously vicar of Hale and Ashley in the Chester diocese from 2007-14. She is married to the Rev. George Lane, coordinating chaplain at Manchester Airport. They were one of the first married couples in the Church of England to be ordained together. She has also held other roles in the diocese, including: team vicar in the Stockport South West Team; assistant diocesan director of ordinands; family life officer for the diocesan Committee for Social Responsibility; and chair of the diocesan Children’s Committee.McPhate, said: “We were honored to welcome the bishop of Stockport and her supporters to the installation service at the cathedral. It was a day of worship and celebration – for men and women alike – as a new chapter was created in the Church of England.”Lane was ordained and consecrated as the first female bishop in the history of the Church of England on Jan. 26 during a service at York Minster.Lane was appointed Dec. 17. Her appointment and the ordination and consecration on Jan. 26 followed more than a decade of often-emotional debate accompanied by various stages of legislative action. The Church of England voted in July to allow women to become bishops, a decision that was later approved by the U.K. Parliament and given the assent of Queen Elizabeth II. The approvals were required because the church’s decision effectively changed English law.

The Termitary House was built in Da Nang, a central coastal city of Viet Nam. The climate in this area is rather extreme in the way it varies significantly between the sunny season and the rainy one. It is also influenced by a lot of tropical storms every year. Besides, Da Nang is well-known for the remains of Champa baked-brick Towers (during the Ancient Champa Kingdom), constructed during the time from the 4th century to the late 15th century. Of all, “Mỹ Sơn” Holy land is the most well-known.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiInspired by the termites’ special ability to build their nests in the local area, the architect has designed the house with a large sharing space in the center where a cooking counter, a dining table, and an entertaining corner are found. This “lobby” then leads to different functional areas in the house such as the rest room, the living room, and the bedrooms. All are connected artistically and comfortably. The mezzanine is where another bedroom, an altar room, and a small library are found.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe attic is an open relaxing area with curtains of vines. Designed for three people, the house does not need a lot of partitions except the ones for the altar room and the bedrooms. Meanwhile, in the sharing areas in the house, the family members can still see and chat to each other through the walls with holes arranged as randomly but scientifically as in an actual termitary.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe house is mainly built with baked bricks which are also a traditional material in the local area. They are the very material to have been used for the construction of the mysterious ancient Champa towers. The ceilings are casted with original concrete, and the floors are covered with terrazzo in dark colors. All furniture is made with the timber from the roof of the old house, which helps make the total actual cost of the construction a significant saving (about under 22,000 usd)Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThat the walls are entirely built with baked bricks makes the house cool in the summer; for this kind of bricks can function as a certain factor to keep the humidity for the entire house. The special constructing technique of “double skins” with two layers of one brick wall covering outside and one glass-aluminum frame inside creates a space within a wall, which functions as a buffer layer at both gables.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiBesides, the arrangement of the toilets and the storage rooms along the walls not only helps block the strong winds during the stormy season but also leads them towards and through the gaps straight to the roof. This is due to the remarkable difference in pressure. On the roof, architects use a system of girders and upside down floors to create a small garden for plants – an ideal place for the whole family to relax and enjoy the breeze during the hot and muggy summer days.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe special design of the baked-brick walls with a lot of holes, together with the large inter-floor space, allows breeze and light to get to all the corners of the house, even the hardest-to-access areas. The house owners are also able to enjoy the blue sky during the daytime or the moonlight night-time from the living room, the dining table or the kitchen.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiAt different times during the day, the variety of the light intensity getting through the inter-floor holes makes the brick wall colors change from the light red in the morning, red at noon, dark red in the afternoon and more purple in the late afternoon and early evening. In the evening and at night, the house looks like a giant lantern with lights here and there from the holes. The surrounding brick walls are decorated with some rough bricks to make shadows. This improve the beauty and charm of every single samel-brick regarding its own shape and color.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiBoth the yard and the garden are covered with coarse gravels with some of the plants (which are rearranged) from the old house in order to retain some familiar features for the owners. Taking the best advantage of ventilation, lighting system and natural air conditioning mechanism has made The Termitary House optimize the positive elements of an effective tropical work.

Ramona Africa honored

first_imgRamona Africa & Eleanor JohnsonFriends, family and political activists held a “Birthday Celebration of Life” for Ramona Africa in Philadelphia on June 8. Africa is the only adult survivor of the horrendous May 13, 1985, bombing of the communal MOVE home by city officials. The bomb killed six adults and five children and caused the destruction by fire of 62 homes in the neighborhood. No city officials were ever punished for the criminal assault, but Africa was imprisoned for seven years for the crime of surviving. Although still recovering from a recent illness, she continues to fight for justice for the MOVE 9, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin and all political prisoners.
