Share Show Comments ▼ Retail sales unexpectedly fell for a second month in a row in September, driven lower by weak clothing and fuel sales, official figures showed. The Office for National Statistics said sales volumes including automotive fuel fell 0.2 per cent last month after a downwardly revised drop of 0.7 per cent in August. Analysts had forecast a rise of 0.4 per cent last month.On the year, sales were 0.5 per cent higher, well below forecasts for a reading of one per cent annual growth.Excluding fuel, retail sales were unchanged on the month and 1.8 per cent higher than in September last year.The figures, which show the longest sustained fall in sales since the turn of the year, are likely to reinforce the view that Britain’s economic recovery has peaked and support broad evidence of weakening consumer activity.Some economists argue that the Bank of England will have to do more to stimulate growth as the government reduces a record budget deficit through large public spending cuts and tax rises, including a hike in VAT sales tax to 20 per cent next year.The ONS said textile, clothing and footwear sales fell 0.8 per cent on the month and predominantly automotive fuel sales were down 2.3 per cent.There were muted rises in food stores and household goods stores sales.

LMVH sales up in luxury bounce back

first_img LVMH, the world’s biggest luxury group, posted forecast-beating fourth-quarter comparable sales boosted by strong Christmas trading, and proposed a higher dividend on the back of a record year.LVMH, whose Louis Vuitton brand accounts for half of group operating profit, said like-for-like revenue rose 13 per cent in the last quarter of 2010, beating analyst expectations of an 11 per cent increase.The group proposed raising its dividend by 27 per cent to 2.10 euros a share.The move comes after smaller peer Hermes unveiled a hefty interim dividend, its first ever.LVMH benefited from Chinese shoppers’ growing appetite for luxury goods at home and abroad as well as from a steady rise in discretionary spending globally.Overall, the group generated a profit from recurring operations of 4.32 billion euros (£3.69bn) on revenue of 20.32bn euros.LVMH’s wines and spirits unit, which includes No.1 champagne maker Moet & Chandon, bounced back from the severe slump of 2009, together with its watches and jewellery division, home to brands Chaumet, Fred, Zenith and Tag Heuer.Wines and spirits generated revenue growth of 19 percent in 2010 and lifted their profit from recurring operations by 22 per cent, as all champagne brands, particularly the prestige cuvees, experienced a recovery.Watches and jewellery saw their profit from recurring operations double last year on 29 per cent higher revenue.Louis Vuitton had another record year, LVMH added, with double-digit growth, while Fendi “performed well.”Global luxury sales climbed 10 per cent in 2010 after dropping 8 percent in 2009, the worst year on record for the industry, according to consultants Bain & Co.

FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Replacing a wage with a reliable and growing passive income is likely to be a key aim for many people. That task can take many years to achieve. But it is possible to gradually build an income stream from dividend shares that offer rising shareholder payouts.Many dividend stocks are currently trading at attractive prices due to the uncertain global economic outlook. But this means now could be the right time to start investing money in income opportunities. Over time, they could even fully replace a wage to provide financial freedom in retirement.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…Investing money in dividend stocks for a passive incomeDespite the recent stock market rally, it is still possible to purchase dividend shares that offer high yields today. Some sectors are unpopular among investors, which means that share prices are low. This could allow investors to earn a relatively high passive income from their capital in 2021 and in the coming years.Clearly, a large sum of money would be required to earn an income return that is large enough to replace a wage. For most people, this will not be possible in the short run or even over the next few years. As such, investing money in companies that have high yields, as well as dividend growth potential, could be a shrewd move. They may be able to provide a growing income return that eventually replaces a salary.Identifying the right dividend sharesFinding the right dividend shares to buy now could be crucial to an investor’s chances of generating a large and growing passive income. As such, buying companies that have affordable dividends could be a sound move. They may be less likely to reduce their payouts. A stock’s dividend affordability can be checked by dividing net profit by dividends paid. A figure above one suggests they are sustainable at their current level given recent profitability.Identifying dividend growth shares is a more challenging task. They are likely to depend on profit growth, since a rising dividend requires a greater pool of capital to pay it. Companies that could improve their passive income prospects at a fast pace include those businesses operating in industries with recovery potential after the recent economic challenges. They also include businesses in sectors that are likely to benefit from long-term shifts in consumer spending and demographics.Of course, even the highest-yielding stocks and companies with strong dividend growth prospects can fold. Unforeseen circumstances can negatively impact on their financial performances and capacity to make shareholder payouts. Therefore, it is crucial to diversify across a wide range of businesses to create a reliable passive income stream. Over time, and with regular investing in such companies, it is possible to earn a surprisingly large income that may be enough to provide financial freedom in place of — or in addition to — a wage.

Companions in faith and resources

first_img Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Collierville, TN Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis The Rev. Richard Kunz, former executive director of El Hogar, a home for boys and girls in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and Charlie Nakash, an Episcopal missionary serving the Diocese of the Dominican Republic, participate in a small group discussion at the Global Episcopal Mission Network conference in Bogotá Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Bogotá, Colombia] An hour and half outside densely populated Bogotá in the mountains sits Mision de Santa Marta and behind it a farm.It is the only parish in Facatativá, a municipality populated by mostly farmers and in addition the farm — which is not under cultivation because of lack of resources — the parish runs a clinic. On May 8, two busloads carrying more than 50 people attending the Global Episcopal Mission Network conference visited Iglesia Santa Maria.Ninety Episcopalians from North, Central and South America and the Caribbean are gathered May 5-9 in Bogotá, Colombia, for the network’s 18th annual conference. This one’s theme was “Companions in Faith and Resources: Participating in God’s Mission.”In a departure from previous GEMN conferences, in addition to mission the Bogotá conference includes a focus on financial sustainability appropriate with its taking place in Province IX, which in 2012 adopted self-sustainability as a focus.“Ultimately, we felt that Province IX had not been that engaged in GEMN, partly because it is separated, and we wanted to connect them with their colleagues in the states,” said the Rev. Ted J. Gaiser, the network’s president and an Episcopal Church missionary serving the Diocese of Colombia. “When we approached the Province IX bishops and asked them if they want to do a conference with us, they said they wanted the theme to be sustainability because that is what they have been working on.”Founded in 1963, the Diocese of Colombia is the youngest diocese in the Episcopal Church and one of seven Province IX dioceses spread across the Caribbean and Central and northern South America. The others include Venezuela, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador Central, Ecuador Litoral and Honduras, all of which are represented at the conference.Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque-Gómez welcomed the Global Episcopal Mission Network conference during a May 5 Eucharist at La Catedral De San Pablo in Bogotá. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceFor more than 20 years, because of the ongoing civil war and narcotrafficking, Colombia has been closed off to the world, but now things are changing, said Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque-Gómez, adding that having the GEMN conference in Colombia allows attendees to see a different reality than that of the United States, and shows them and others that it’s safe to visit Colombia.GEMN is a network of individuals, representatives of development organizations diocesan mission representative who are committed to sharing mission information and promoting mission.The conference included plenary talks on “Financial and Economic Sustainability: A paradigm shift in the life and mission of the church,” given by Humberto Shikiya, an economist from Argentina and the director general of the Regional Ecumenical Advisory and Service Civil Association, a Christian-based nonprofit association focused on capacity building; “Theological linkages with economic sustainability,” given by Paulo Ueti, the Anglican Alliance’s Latin American facilitator; and workshops ranging from “developing project plans,” “developing a church-based foundation,” “development groups,” drawing on the strengths of the Dominican Development Group.The Dominican Development Group was established in 1998 to assist in the development and self-sufficiency of the Diocese of the Dominican Republic, one of the fastest growing dioceses in the Episcopal Church.  In 15 years, the DDG has raised more than $10 million to finance the building of infrastructure, including churches, schools, day-care centers and medical clinics, in the Dominican Republic. It is held up as a model for self-sustainability across Province IX.Bob Stevens, who has served the Dominican Development Group since its founding and who will retire the end of this month, said that in forming a development group it’s important that the overseas leadership and the local leadership establish strong relationships.“It’s done through friendship. Bishop [Julio Cesar] Holguin and I are good friends. Many of the priests in the diocese are friends,” said Stevens, following the conference’s May 7 “development groups” workshop. “It’s not just about business but the common ground you travel.”The Diocese of the Dominican Republic, which has been in existence for 116 years, has some 16 companion-diocese relationships in contrast the Diocese of Colombia has two, Connecticut and West Virginia.In his welcome letter to conference attendees, Duque-Gómez explained that the country’s half century armed conflict, narcotrafficking and the precarious security situation that has long plagued the country — leading to the internal displacement an estimated 5.2 million people — has worked against the diocese forming partnerships.There’s renewed hope, however, as the government and the guerillas again are attempting to negotiate a peace. In November 2012, the Colombian government and the left-wing Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, began a new round of peace talks, the second session of which is currently taking place in Havana, Cuba. Three previous attempts at peace have been unsuccessful.On May 7, conference attendees had the opportunity to visit Mision Del Espiritu Santo, a small parish located in Soacha, a poor community on the outskirts of Bogotá populated by internally displaced people, where the church has started a program that serves single mothers and homeless women providing education, assistance with healthcare and empowerment.In Colombia, the women explained, you can be killed for speaking publicly in defense of human rights, yet still they told the group of more than 60 people that what they are fighting for is women’s rights, including the right to live a life free of violence, access to education and health care, economic opportunities, and the right to a vacation, something a life of displacement and social exclusion doesn’t afford them.Herb Glahn, a member of Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Petoskey, Michigan, and Clemencia Lopez, of MESA, during a May 7 talk at Mision Del Espiritu Santo, a small parish in Soacha. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service“These were very courageous people,” said Herb Glahn, a member of Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Petoskey, Michigan, who visited the parish in Soacha on May 7. “They were comfortable sharing what the need and what they are working for.”It was Glahn’s first time in Colombia, and though he knew a bit about the country from an “intellectual” level, it was the first time he’d ever had “feet on the ground,” and before the morning of May 7 he didn’t know Colombia’s 50-year conflict had resulted millions of internally displaced people.Beginning in the 1980s, competition and disputes over land for agriculture, cattle ranching, resource extraction and coca cultivation have figured prominently in Colombia’s conflict as the armed groups have fought for control of territory. In addition to millions of internally displaced people, the situation has caused more than 400,000 Colombians to become refugees.When asked by conference attendees about the role of the United States and multinational corporations in the internal displacement of Colombians, the women gathered at Mision Del Espiritu Santo said that governments and corporations operated differently than people and that the Colombian people feel in solidarity with the American people.Since 2000, in the form of “Plan Colombia,” the United States has given the Colombian government more than $8 billion in military and financial aid, with some of that aid spent on protecting the interests of multinational corporations.Ashley Cameron, an intern in the Diocese of Virginia’s Office of Mission and Outreach, Elizabeth Boe, the Episcopal Church’s global networking officer, and Ryan Abrams, a Young Adult Service Corps missionary serving in the Episcopal Diocese of Costa Rica during the opening Eucharist for the Global Episcopal Mission Network conference in Bogotá Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceConference attendees also had an opportunity to learn more about the social and economic situation in Colombia through mission site visits including Mision Divino Salvador, a parish in Bogotá that provides a shelter for homeless elderly people and also runs an afterschool program for area youth.Robert Harris, a member of the Diocese of Western Massachusetts’ Global Mission Committee, attended the GEMN conference, he said, to learn more about mission in order to be a better resource to his parish and his diocese and also to discern his own call.He found the two plenary talks on theology and economics particularly helpful. “Mission is about transformation and that is what development is,” said Harris.It is the second GEMN conference attended by Tom and Dianne Wilson, Episcopal Church missionaries recently deployed to El Salvador. During last year’s conference in Connecticut, the Wilsons were still discerning their call to mission, they said.“Well, we’d already discerned,” said Tom Wilson, adding that the positive reinforcement of other conference attendees affirmed their decision. “They kept saying, ‘just go,’ and it kept the momentum.”GEMN, the largest mission group in the Episcopal Church, provides a place for people interested in mission to connect and share ideas, said Tim Skimina, chair of Companions in Christ, a Diocese of Northern Indiana ministry with the Diocese of Honduras, and a GEMN board member.“Anyone who is interested in mission can be involved in GEMN,” he said.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.  Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Smithfield, NC Submit a Job Listing Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL 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 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Featured Jobs & Calls An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Press Release Service Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Companions in faith and resources GEMN conference underway in Bogotá Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC May 9, 2013 at 11:49 pm Blogs and photos from several attendees at the GEMN Conference in Bogota are posted on Facebook and at the Global Episcopal Mission Network website: http://www.gemn.org.

Archbishops, past and present, urge caution on Syria intervention

first_img Rector Belleville, IL Rector Hopkinsville, KY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books [Anglican Communion News Service] Both Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and one of his predecessors George Carey have warned of the consequences of military action in Syria.Speaking to The Telegraph, Welby said U.K. Members of Parliament must be sure about the facts on the ground before acting amid “a really delicate and dangerous situation.”Welby, who is a member of the House of Lords, said there were “numerous intermediate steps” to consider between doing nothing and regime change, adding there was no “good answer” or any simple solutions.Lord Carey of Clifton, who was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 until 2002, said armed intervention in Syria could lead to a regional war.He said he shared the U.K. prime minister’s outrage at a government using chemical weapons against its own people, but was opposed to the U.K. entering into the conflict in Syria.In the interview with The Telegraph, Welby also highlighted the plight of Christians in the region saying that people there had a “terrible sense of fear about what might come out of, what might be happening in the next few weeks.”His immediate predecessor, Rowan Williams, has said nothing publicly on the subject of military intervention in Syria. However, he recently highlighted the persecution of Christians in countries around the world. Speaking to an audience at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Lord Williams, who is now Master of Cambridge’s Magdalene College, told an audience that he himself had Christian friends in Syria who had disappeared and “whose fate remains unknown.”To read the articles in full visit:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/10269721/Welby-warns-against-rushing-to-judgment-over-Syria-intervention.htmlandhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/10270373/Military-action-in-Syria-would-spark-Middle-East-war-warns-Lord-Carey.html Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Pittsburgh, PA Archbishop of Canterbury, Middle East Featured Events Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit a Press Release Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK 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 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Albany, NY Rector Knoxville, TN The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit a Job Listing Rector Tampa, FL Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR center_img Archbishops, past and present, urge caution on Syria intervention By ACNS staffPosted Aug 28, 2013 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Martinsville, VA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Curate Diocese of Nebraska Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Featured Jobs & Calls Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Collierville, TN Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
