Whether you love Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) founder Elon Musk or not, you have to be overawed by the Tesla share price. It has soared by an astonishing 725% in the past 12 months, making fortunes for loyal investors. If I had invested £10,000 one year ago, when the Tesla share price stood at $50, I would have almost £83,000 at today’s $425. Tesla has defied the sceptics, who thought its share price was overvalued when it stood at a fraction of today’s value. Jaws dropped in January, when it was noted that Tesla was worth more than both the Ford Motor Company and General Motors combined. At the time, Tesla’s market cap was $93bn. Today it stands at $393bn.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…There are lots of words to describe Tesla’s incredible recent share price performance, but I’ll stick to just the one. Absurd.The Tesla share price is absurdly highDon’t get don’t get me wrong, I love what Tesla has done. I’m writing this from Norway, where almost everybody seems to have one, thanks to the generous state subsidies to encourage the shift to electric motoring.Stylish, clean electric cars, what’s not to like? These are luxury automobiles, but they are getting cheaper. Tesla is cutting prices as it looks to build market share, and to meet its ambitious delivery target of 500,000 motors this year. It has dropped the starting price of its Chinese-made Model 3 saloons by 8% to $36,805, and announced plans to develop a $25,000 vehicle. This week’s third-quarter results gave the Tesla share price another lift, as it beat analyst expectations again to deliver a record $8.77bn of revenues, up 39% on last year. When one broker asked whether Tesla could deliver between 840,000 and one million cars next year Mr Musk said that was “not far off”. It would be impressive if Tesla did manage that, although analysts currently forecast about 742,000 vehicles.Tesla isn’t just a carmakerGiven its rapid growth, why do I think the Tesla share price is absurd? Because Ford sold 5.4m units in total last year, but has a market cap of just $32bn, a fraction of Tesla’s $393bn. General Motorcycles sold 7.7m, yet its market cap is just $54bn. Tesla trades at more than 1,000 times earnings. It certainly isn’t cheap.Anybody buying in to the Tesla share price at today’s dizzying level is assuming that it is virtually going to take over the global car industry. Yet electric cars still make up just 3% of total sales. It has a long journey ahead of it.Here’s another worry. Tesla has now delivered five consecutive quarterly profits, but wouldn’t have done so without selling carbon credits to rival car makers. No one knows how long this income stream will last.On the other hand, Mr Musk has worked miracles before. Also, Tesla also has a booming battery storage and sustainable power generation business, which could match its car business one day.A lot of short sellers have gone broke betting against the Tesla share price. Personally, I wouldn’t buy at today’s dizzying level, that would be absurd.I might buy if it fell though. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Robert C. Wright ordained Atlanta’s 10th bishop

This merely states the pattern of worship as the Christian Church knew it for about 1500 years and recovered in the Episcopal Church starting with the Oxford Movement in the 19th Century. The overwhelming majority of Episcopal churches have Mass as the chief service on Sunday. In the Diocese of San Diego and the Diocese of Los Angeles (and others) it is 100%. We have a few embarrassments who haven’t gotten the message yet, but they are unfortunate exceptions, not the rule. October 15, 2012 at 11:33 pm The Episcopal church has become a “play-church.” Women priests, abandoning the 1928 Prayer book for a “prayer book for dummies,” incorporating vastly inferior music into its services, abolishing the traditional and civilized service of Morning Prayer and making communion mandatory at virtually all services, electing leaders who are weak in the traditions of the Episcopal church, and most likely have no knowledge of the 39 Articles. I am an old-fashioned Episcopalian, and by that I mean that I do not go to church. I readily admit that I much preferred Morning Prayer to communion. Nowadays, with communion the required service, I would feel like an Aztec – all that emphasis on blood and sacrifice, and the disfiguring of what was a meal in the home to a superstitious ritual. It is any wonder that membership in the Episcopal church is at its lowest level and is continuing to decline? Maybe it is time for the church to pass out of existence and be replaced with something else. A sad time, nonetheless. I must also ask why the new Bishop did not choose to be consecrated in the Cathedral Church. I know, I know, there were too many people on his “list.” If the Queen of England can accommodate a number of people in Westminster Abbey for a great service, finding it necessary to omit some people, surely the Bishop of Atlanta could have done the same and been consecrated in a holy place rather than an assembly hall. It is all a matter of taste, or perhaps it would be more accurate to say a matter of no taste.

In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Thomas Orr says: November 19, 2012 at 10:23 am The term “mass” seems alien to the Episcopal Church. Regardless, to perpetuate the superstitious ideas inherent in the “mass” or celebration of the Eucharist, or whatever, is comical. The church has taken a simple home meal and laden it down with supernatural nonsense. The whole idea of the “magic” of the Eucharist was for many years a way of controlling the peasant classes and making them believe that the church had something special to offer. Rather like the prize at the bottom of the box of Cracker Jacks. An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books October 27, 2012 at 11:31 am In this day and age, I can well understand Mr. Orr’s harkening back to a quieter time and place in a Church that seemed to exist in the minds and hearts of people in times past. The reality however is that Church has never existed or has it ever been stuck in a vacuum in the “Swamplands of Never Change.” I wish that I could speak with the priest and Sunday School teachers who taught Mr. Orr the history of Anglicanism. I particular I would have pointed out how it was planted and learned to survive the harsh realities of being “The Official Church” of England and finding itself in a new country where the King was no longer ruler and clergy didn’t have to swear allegiance. Some clergy went back to England and others escaped to Canada, yet others took their 1662 Books of Common Prayer and crossed out King and replaced it with President and so on. Some Parishes were left for many, many years with no clergy at all and thus the “norm” in many Parishes became Morning Prayer. Still to this day in many of the Early American Historic Episcopal Churches, though Holy Communion was celebrated weekly on early Sunday mornings, the traditional main Service of Morning Prayer is still paramount to the worship of the Episcopal Church. Yet even at the time of the American Revolution the Anglican Church had slipped into, more of less, a Morning Prayer tradition as a norm for later Sunday Worship. In looking back to the History of the Church, including the Reformation in England, Holy Communion was and thank God still is “THE” worship of the Church. The Church saw the Last Supper as the “norm” for worship in the Church on Sunday. Jesus didn’t say Take, eat, this is my Morning Prayer, did He? Especially when He said to His disciples “Do this often!” As to Bishop Wright’s Consecration, it was still celebrated in a Chapel, though at Morehouse College. How does a Chapel constitute an “Assembly Hall?” The point is that “People” gathered and where Baptized Christians gather in worship, there is the Church, be it in the grandest of Cathedrals or in a log cabin Church in the Adirondack Mountains. Though I empathize with Mr. Orr’s yearnings for the Episcopal Church past, it would be better served if as an “Old Fashioned Episcopalian,” that he starts going to Church like his parents and priest taught him – that what makes a practicing Christian, who just so happens to be an Episcopalian. As a Rector of a parish for the past 35 years, I keep reminding my flock that our faith, presence at Mass, support/pledging and witness to Jesus Christ are what makes for the start of our walk as followers of Jesus Christ. We really “Play Church” when we don’t attend, don’t support and don’t do anything about the Church, but complain. Thomas Orr says: November 19, 2012 at 10:16 am I believe that history is always open to convenient interpretations, and while the church is evolving always, I find myself uninteretsed in the ,mediocre church of the 21st century. I know that it sees itself as “relevant,” which imples, of course, that it can be irrelevant. It is certainly that for me.

Photo/C Brown photo[Diocese of Atlanta] The ordination Oct. 13 of the 10th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta drew some 2,500 church members, clergy, bishops and choristers.The service was steeped in tradition, with chanting, anthems and Holy Communion.Held at the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College, the service featured a choir of more than 300 voices and some 25 Episcopal bishops. Among the ecumenical guests was Atlanta’s Roman Catholic Archbishop Wilton Gregory.Robert Christopher Wright, former rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta, who was elected bishop in June by priests and laity, was met at the chapel door by outgoing Bishop J. Neil Alexander.The two men then followed hundreds of church members processing with church banners emblazoned with vibrant colors and clergy vested in brilliant red, white and purple. The banners represented the 96 congregations throughout middle and north Georgia that comprise the diocese.A 350-voice combined choir from 52 Episcopal churches and schools sang a variety of hymns, anthems and gospel and spiritual music.Scripture passages during the service were read in Spanish, Haitian-Creole, English and Karen, a Burmese dialect, reflecting the diverse communities in the Diocese of Atlanta.The sermon was delivered by the Rev. Andrew Young, who praised Wright and his wife, Beth-Sarah, saying, “God blessed you to minister together to a world in need of love.”Young spoke of his civil rights work first in Birmingham and later South Africa, remarking that “reason guided by faith can take on any challenge. We can have justice and mercy together.”The civil rights worker, former Atlanta mayor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, noted that Wright was becoming bishop in a time of great turmoil.“And in times like these, I refer to this—and I pass it on to you,” he said, quoting from one of his favorite hymns. “On Christ, the solid rock, I stand,” he recited. “All other ground is sinking sand.?All other ground is sinking sand.”While the congregation sang “Come Holy Ghost, Our Souls Inspire,” bishops encircled and touched Wright while he knelt.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, the first woman to head the Episcopal Church, led the other bishops as chief-consecrator.After the consecration, more than 2,200 worshipers were served bread and wine by priests at multiple communion stations.One dignitary who traveled to Atlanta for Saturday’s ceremony was the Rt. Rev. Jane Dixon of Virginia, who ordained Wright to the priesthood in 1999. Asked about the qualities that would stand Wright in good stead as a bishop, she said, “He’s a faithful believer.”Wright earned a master of divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary in 1998. He is currently working on a doctor of ministry in preaching at the School of Theology at the University of the South.He and his wife have a daughter and three sons who are students at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, where Wright is a member of the school’s board of trustees. Another daughter attends college in Virginia.Wright preached for the first time as bishop Sunday at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta after being escorted to the cathedra (bishop’s chair) by the Dean Sam Candler.His sermon was interrupted three times by applause. “There is a challenge here for the church this morning,” he said. “And, by church, I mean you and me. Stop apologizing for being Christians, and be apologists for Jesus Christ.“This is not about talking points, not about denominations or even church. But, in your own way, in your own idiom, with the same ease you recommend a restaurant or a movie, ‘Comfort others with the comfort we ourselves are being comforted with.’” As he ended his sermon, the cathedral congregation gave the new bishop a standing ovation.As bishop, Wright will be visiting and preaching at a different parish every Sunday. Among the first parishes he will visit are Church of the Good Shepherd, Covington, and Church of the Mediator in Washington, Georgia.Contributors to this story include Peggy J.

Split House, a name that is dragged from its own concept including the backgrounds and functions that are not only happen by now but already have been processing since the existing building was standing and the renovation construction was on. Located in the very dense residential area in West Jakarta, the typology of residential is divided by several housing land lots, usually designed in rows that each is separated by a street. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThis project is a renovation project of an existing house on 6×15 meters land owned by a family of four. Pushed by the need to provide a comfortable and adequate working space, the owner planned to extend the land area one lot to its neighbor. This need creates a combination function between a private living space and working space together in one place, which is no more an ideal form. We need to design a well separation for those functions. One other constrain is the construction phases should had been run one by one, because the family requested not to move out from the existing house during the construction of extended land lot. After the new building finished, they moved aside to occupy it, so the existing building construction could run. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaAccording to the background of expanding design and construction area, it was decided to design a house consisted of two buildings. It is a strategy to run the construction phases one by one and to separate the two functions between private living space and working space. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe name of “Split House”, related to the concept visualizes two houses with slope roof that stand on two different land lots. One of them is rotated 180 degrees, so they are opposing each other. The part that has slope going down to the front street is an entrance area to the private living space for the four-family, while the other part of the house is the entrance for office space. Actually the zone separation of living and working space does not happen horizontally, but vertically. The horizontal separation in the front area of the house is just intended to define the entrance to living space and the entrance to the office. Generally speaking, the zone is divided vertically, that the ground level is intended for office function and the upper level is used for living space. Those vertically zone division is very logical to reach private visual quality as living space hierarchy in higher floor. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaLiving space entrance starts by a front courtyard with a tree as a welcoming vocal point and is covered by a transparent roof to let the natural light and air coming directly into it. This courtyard concept in the front area of the building acts also as mediation to family room on the second floor with the surrounding outdoor area. After passing the courtyard, we will arrive in the gallery space like directing us to vertical circulation area at the back. Vertical circulation is made in zigzag shape, imagining it as an artwork element filling the void area at the back. The gallery space actually could also be used as additional space for working area of the office if it is needed. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaThe placement of family room at the second floor is intended to achieve privacy as in function and also visual protection from outdoor area. Meanwhile we still preserve the connectivity of views and natural air circulation between the family room itself with the outdoor area within the foreground of a tree from the courtyard. Save this picture!© Fernando GomulyaMaster bedroom and kid’s bedroom are located at the side of family room. These layout suits the best as a balance circulation to all residences of the house. Family room becomes a loft under the slope ceiling and roof that eventually direct the natural light and air to come in. This loft concept space for the family room also let the visual continuity to the front courtyard. On the third floor is set up with casual lounge space for the family with the roof garden that produces an active natural air circulation changing with the front courtyard.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBass and Flinders Gateway Project Proposal / Spark ArchitectsUnbuilt ProjectImagine Our Digital Future and Join the Glass House Conversations’ Last Online Dialo…Architecture News Share Split House / TWS & Partners ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/392950/split-house-tws-and-partners Clipboard ArchDailylast_img read more

The 2017 GlobalData survey found that majority of consumers feel most comfortable paying with cash, with 89% of consumers surveyed saying they use cash to pay for purchases in stores up to 25 times a month.Around 33% of the female and 35% of male respondents said comfort was the main reason for choosing to pay with cash. Other reasons included convenience, low risk and of the unavailability of alternative payment methods.Arnie Cho, Senior Financial Analyst at GlobalData said:“Though there are occasions where cash is the only payment option for consumers when making payments in-store, there are some other aspects of consumer behavior that explain why consumer choose cash as their payment choice.“For example, the Gen X and Y segment use cash more often than the other age groups, partly as a result of being out at work which increases their opportunities for in-store purchases. Payments providers should look to understand the specific occasions for cash usage across demographics in order to offer viable alternatives to consumers.”  109 total views,  1 views today Advertisementlast_img read more

Darfur : An investigation into a tragedy’s forgotten actors

first_img March 29, 2020 Find out more After a fact-finding visit to Sudan from 17 to 22 March, Reporters Without Borders is issuing a report on the country’s press and civil society, shedding a new light on the misleading image of a “land of massacres” closed to the world and dominated by a dictatorial and monolithic regime. SudanAfrica Organisation Receive email alerts RSF_en The janjaweed militiamen are used “by a racist regime that is in many respects worse than the apartheid regime in South Africa, which at least had the dignity not to employ rape as a tactic of suppression.” Did this scathing remark appear in the New York Times or Le Nouvel Observateur, two newspapers known for criticising the Sudanese government? No, surprising as it may seem, it was made in an editorial in the Citizen, a Khartoum daily, on 18 March. And there was no angry reaction from the government.After a fact-finding visit to Sudan from 17 to 22 March, Reporters Without Borders today issued a report entitled “Darfur: An investigation into a tragedy’s forgotten actors,” in which the press freedom organisation tries to contribute new elements to the international debate about the tragedy which the peoples of western Sudan have been enduring.The Reporters Without Borders team found that the Sudanese press, like the country’s society as a whole, is both active and diverse. Even in Darfur, the team was able to talk to members of a very real civil society, one that is aware of the unfolding tragedy and the challenges it must face. The newspapers published in Khartoum are also very diverse and reflect the voices of Sudanese human rights activists, university researchers and other civil society actors, voices that find it hard to make themselves heard outside Sudan.Contrary to the prevailing media image, Reporters Without Borders found that Sudan is not “a land of massacres, a terra incognita in which the 21st century’s first genocide is unfolding in Darfur, out of sight, without foreigners reporting what is happening, without any Sudanese voicing criticism.” The reality is much more complicated and often contradictory.Like many wars around the world, Darfur’s crisis poses complex coverage problems for both the national and international media. The intrinsic problems – the large number of armed factions, the absence of a “front line,” the hostile nature of the terrain and lack of a distinction between combatants and civilians – are deliberately compounded by the “bureaucratic fence” which the government in Khartoum has erected around the war zone to try to “regulate”and influence the work of the press (which the report describes). These difficulties explain why Sudan is seen as a country closed to the world, one where every possible kind of massacre could take place in secrecy.The international media react to these obstructions by approaching their coverage of Darfur in a spirit of “resistence” to a government perceived as “hostile,” the report concludes. When reporting the worst atrocities, foreign journalists may sometimes offer a stereotyped image of Sudan focused solely on the suffering in Darfur, without taking account of the historical causes of the crisis or the solutions proposed by Sudanese civil society, whose very existence, diversity and commitment seem unknown to many of them.In its conclusions, Reporters Without Borders recommends that the Sudanese government should take all necessary measures to open up the country to the foreign press and to increase a dynamic civil society’s freedom or action; that international organisations should take account of local realities, above all by supporting Sudanese civil society, and should overhaul their communication methods; and that the international media should not neglect the “forgotten actors” of the crisis, in order to portray Sudan in all its diversity and help it to resolve its internal contradictions.

Al Jazeera – collateral victim of diplomatic offensive against Qatar

More recently, Gen. Sisi’s government blocked the Al Jazeera website at the same time as 20 other news websites accused of bias in favour of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. A similar measure was taken by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates, which blocked the Al Jazeera website on 23 May. “Closing Al Jazeera’s bureaux is a political decision that amounts to censoring this TV broadcaster,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “In Saudi Arabia, this violation of the freedom to inform compounds the country’s already very bad record on free speech and media freedom, We urge the Saudi authorities to rescind this decision and to let Al Jazeera resume operating.”For the time being, RSF has no information about the current state of Al Jazeera’s employees in Riyadh or whether they are affected by the order given to Qatari citizens to leave the country within 14 days.When reached by RSF, Al Jazeera condemned the Saudi government decision and said in a statement: “This is not the first time that Saudi authorities have imposed such restrictions on Al Jazeera’s operations (…) We firmly believe these are unjustified measures by the authorities in the Kingdom against the Network and its operations (…) We call upon the government to respect the freedom of press and allow journalists to continue do their job free of intimidation and threats.”Al Jazeera also operates in Libya and Mauritania, two other members of the group of countries which – like Bahrain and United Arab Emirates – announced that they were breaking off relations with Qatar.The diplomatic crisis with Qatar and the targeting of Al Jazeera are having repercussions throughout the region, including in Jerusalem.Individuals led by Israeli far-right activist Baruch Marzel stormed into the building that houses the Al Jazeera bureau in East Jerusalem yesterday evening brandishing posters, accusing the broadcaster of being allied to Islamic State and demanding its closure. After their arrival outside the Al Jazeera bureau’s entrance, the Israeli police had to intervene twice to get them to leave.Launched in 1996, Al Jazeera revolutionized the Arab world’s media landscape by making room for the broadest range of viewpoints, from the most moderate to the most radical. It distinguished itself above all during its coverage of the Arab Spring but enraged many of the region’s governments, which regard it as a Qatari foreign policy tool.Saudi Arabia is ranked 168th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. Egypt, Jordan and Qatar are ranked 161st, 138th and 123th respectively.

Limerick City trailing on transport

first_imgOnly re-integration will solve Shannon Airport crisis Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon? Facebook Print CSO figures show Limerick City trails behind other cities for use of public transport and cycling for commuters.DATA from the Central Statistics Office released this week revealed Limerick City has some catching up to do with Cork, Galway and Dublin in terms of people taking the bus or biking to work. Less than four per cent of people living in Limerick City commute to work by bus, while the figure is almost eight per cent for Galway, and just shy of 11 per cent in Cork.Limerick also falls behind with only 2.4% of Limerick people cycling to work, less than half that of Galway.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Responding to the figures, Cllr Cian Prendiville, Solidarity, said that it shows “a lot more needs to be done to improve public transport and cycling facilities in Limerick”.“I don’t see why Limerick couldn’t at least match the numbers using the bus and bike to get to work in Galway in the very short term. As it stands they are twice as good as we are,” said the Solidarity councilor.Cllr Prendiville also believes with greater investment in bus and cycle lanes, as well as more frequent services Limerick could “easily double the numbers”. “Ultimately, we should be striving to match Dublin and the other big cities in terms of frequent and reliable public transport”, he added. Dublin’s figures were more than five times that of Limerick’s, but this takes into consideration services such as the DART and Luas.Cllr. Prendiville has previously proposed that the Council work together with Bus Eireann to organise a ‘Car Free Day’ with free public transport in the city, something the council is currently considering.“We need to encourage more people who maybe never take the bus, to give it a go. A Car Free Day with free public transport could be a great opportunity to do that, and be an important step in improving public transport, and bringing down the costs.”Visit the Limerick Post Local News section to read more stories.
