By analysing and digging deeper into the profit, we can see exactly where it comes from and how it is converted into profit. 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…While £1,000 of profit will always be £1,000 of profit, there can be important differences in the quality of that profit. And the quality of the profit can have a significant impact on the quality of a portfolio, making the difference between a successful investment that continues to grow in value and a short-lived investing regret.Let’s take a look at how to check the quality of a company’s profits.Identify what type of revenue the profit comes fromWhen checking the quality of a company’s profits we need to look out the sources of that profit. There is a big difference between one-off sales and recurring revenue.For example, a company may have single large orders every few years at random, or it could have a steady and increasing level of orders every year. We can be much more confident investing in a company with regular and growing business, than in one that gets big orders, but few and far between.Furthermore, if the company is able to lock its customers into a subscription model, in which premiums are paid on a recurring basis, then we can be even more confident of the revenue being secured.Single customer riskWhich company would you rather invest in: a company with lots of customers, or a company that has a single customer that makes up a large portion of its revenue?The latter company stands to lose a lot more if that single customer runs into trouble or decides to pull the plug on its orders. A company that has a broad and diversified client base does not need to worry so much. The quality of the customerThis is another factor that we should focus on. Customers who are small and growing, who aren’t able to finance their own operations from funds generated internally from the business, should be classed as a much higher risk than a company that is established and more mature. While the growing company may end up increasing its order rate year on year, if the business is dependent on further cash injections, then there is a risk that the available credit and funding eventually dries up leading to a collapse. Focusing on the quality of the customers of the companies that you invest in can have a big impact on the quality of the profits that your investments generate. Clearly, not all profits are created equal. By looking at the type of revenue, how the revenue is split among the company’s clients, and the quality of the customers themselves, we can learn a lot about the quality of a company’s profits.

What is the Anglican Consultative Council? Course Director Jerusalem, Israel AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Albany, NY Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Tags [Episcopal News Service] The Anglican Consultative Council is one of three of the Anglican Communion’s Instruments of Communion, the others being the Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops and the Primates Meeting.The archbishop of Canterbury (who is president of the ACC) is seen as is the “Focus for Unity” for the three instruments.Full ENS coverage of the 17th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council is available here.The ACC’s objective, according to its constitution, is to “advance the Christian religion and in particular to promote the unity and purposes of the Churches of the Anglican Communion, in mission, evangelism, ecumenical relations, communication, administration and finance.” And, among the ACC’s powers listed in the constitution, is its ability to “develop as far as possible agreed Anglican policies in the world mission of the church” and encourage the communion’s autonomous churches, or provinces, to share their resources to accomplish those policies.The ACC is responsible for charting the work of the communion’s committees and networks, as well as that of the Anglican Communion staff and the communion’s Standing Committee. There are currently 10 thematic networks that address and profile various issues and areas of interest in the Anglican Communion.Formed in 1969, the ACC includes clergy and lay people, as well as bishops, among its delegates. Members are chosen by various means in each of the Anglican Communion’s 40 provinces and six extra-provincial bodies to serve for three meetings of the ACC. The largest provinces are entitled to three members: a bishop, priest and lay person. Other provinces are entitled to two members: one ordained person (deacon, priest or bishop) and one lay person.In addition, the primates, or episcopal leaders, of the Anglican Communion provinces elect five members to the ACC and the Standing Committee can appoint “up to six additional members in order to achieve balanced representation and to assist the work of the council in achieving its object,” according to the ACC constitution. The latter are known as “co-opted members.” This year, the ACC will also be joined by eight youth members from five regions across the Anglican Communion.Representatives from the communion’s ecumenical partners also attend and, for the first time, this 17th meeting of the ACC includes eight youth members from five geographic regions of the communion.The Episcopal Church’s ACC members in Hong Kong are Oklahoma Bishop Edward J. Konieczny, the Rev. Michael Barlowe and Rosalie Ballentine of the Diocese of the Virgin Islands. This is the first meeting for Barlowe and Konieczny, and Ballentine’s second. Terms run for three meetings.Barlowe, the executive officer of General Convention, is serving as an alternate to House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, who would have been attending the last of her three-meeting term. Rebecca Wilson, her spokesperson, said that in order to fulfill other commitments and use the church’s travel budget wisely, Jennings asked Executive Council to name Barlowe as the alternate clergy member for this ACC meeting. Barlowe, who represents The Episcopal Church at gatherings of the communion’s provincial secretaries, was already scheduled to travel to Hong Kong for such a meeting May 6-9.The roster for ACC17 is here.The council meets every three or four years and the Hong Kong meeting is the council’s 17th session. The ACC last met in April 2016 in Lusaka, Zambia. It is returning to Hong Kong where it met in 2002 for its 12th meeting. The first meeting was held in Limuru, Kenya, in 1971.Some parts of the meeting in Hong Kong are being livestreamed here where they will also be available for later playback.

Across the 18-county district, rainfall is almost six inches below normal for the past three monthsFrom the St. Johns River Water Management DistrictWith below-normal rainfall causing increasingly drier conditions, the St. Johns River Water Management District wants to remind water users about the importance of outdoor water conservation. Indoor water use, such as hand washing and sanitizing, is critical in the current health crisis, and the district urges Floridians to follow directives from the state and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to curb the spread of COVID-19.However, more than half of Florida’s residential water use typically occurs outdoors on lawns and landscapes; thus, the district has concentrated its year-long Water Less campaign on outdoor water conservation.Across the 18-county district, rainfall is almost six inches below normal for the past three months, and March rainfall averaged barely ¼ inch. Moderate drought conditions have developed across most of the district, including Clay, Putnam and St. Johns counties where 12-month rainfall totals are less than 40 inches. By comparison, the average 12-month rainfall is just over 51 inches.Groundwater levels in the Floridan aquifer have dropped by approximately 15 percent over the last month. Surface water flows are low, except for the St. Marys River, which is the northernmost boundary of the district and a waterway that receives significant runoff from Georgia.Conservation is among the district’s most important strategies to help meet Florida’s water supply needs. The district’s springtime “Did you set it and forget it” message recommends an irrigation system checkup, including timers, spray heads and pipes, to make sure systems are working efficiently and effectively. Taking control of your sprinkler system can help to save water and money while allowing for healthy, beautiful landscapes.Also, to encourage awareness about the importance of water conservation, the district’s Governing Board recently approved a proclamation designating April as Water Conservation Month, along with a growing list of local government partners.Year-round watering restrictions are in place across the district’s 18-county region to ensure the efficient use of water for landscape irrigation.

Volunteering England has launched a campaign asking small and medium sized businesses to give more help to charities by establishing employer-supported volunteering (ESV) schemes that enable employees to volunteer their time to good causes through a work context.Although smaller companies account for 59% of private sector employment in the UK, only 14% of them offer an ESV scheme, according to the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.Volunteering England’s campaign is supported by The British Chambers of Commerce, the Federation of Small Businesses, the Forum for Private Business and a range of other industry bodies, and is the culmination of a three-year project aimed at developing Employer Supported Volunteering.Justin Davis-Smith, Chief Executive of Volunteering England, said that their research shows that ESVs can be good for business.“In spite of the pressure on resources which many small and medium sized businesses face”, he said, “an employer supported volunteering programme can bring considerable benefits; often companies with ESV programmes find that employees are proud to work for them and potential employees want to join them. It often makes a difference with customers too, who feel good about buying from them and can lead to added investment”.The successful ‘Give a few bob’ campaign, featuring the late comedian Bob Monkhouse, is being used as an illustration of the benefits that volunteering can bring to both charities and small businesses.Robert Prevezer, the Chairman of The Communications Agency, a marketing company with around 45 staff, had offered the company’s services free of charge to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation at a time when one of his friends was suffering from the disease.The campaign developed by TCA generated over £3 million worth of media activity, raising the profile of prostate cancer research and helping to more than double donations to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation.Volunteering England’s campaign will help SMEs with three key points: why volunteer? How can I get started? and what’s available in my area? It is focused on encouraging businesses to find information and resources on its website.www.volunteering.org.uk/smes Small businesses encouraged to start volunteer schemes 21 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Tagged with: corporate Volunteering Howard Lake | 30 July 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Tefere Gebre is the AFL-CIO’s executive vice president.AFL-CIO conventionFrom Oct. 22 to Oct. 25 more than 1,200 delegates to the AFL-CIO’s quadrennial convention met in St. Louis. They came from all over the U.S. and represented a wide range of public and private sector unions.The labor federation met in a community that has been in revolt against police brutality, first in Ferguson, Mo., and recently in St. Louis itself. Speakers at the convention repeatedly made the link between labor rights and civil rights.Delegates had the opportunity to put program into practice when the America’s Center, where the convention was held, locked out a delegation from Black Lives Matter that had been invited to speak. The Center management cited “danger to property” as the reason the doors were chained shut. The BLM delegation included state Rep. Bruce Franks.Former AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Arlene Holt-Baker urged the delegates to walk out and join the BLM members. When they did, the center management relented and let Franks and the BLM activists in. This action took place at a pre-conference program called “All of us or none of us.”By the close of the convention, the delegates had passed 56 separate resolutions, most of them of a progressive nature. The labor federation took positions to combat climate change, for national health care, for a “Workers Bill of Rights,” for full employment and a $15 minimum wage, for immigrant rights, to “condemn rising fascism” and one declaring that “war is not the answer.”Not all the stands taken were progressive. For example, resolutions were passed reviving the chauvinistic “Buy America” campaigns. Earlier this year President Rich Trumka made a treacherous decision to work with the Donald Trump administration’s economic advisory council. Trumka and other labor leaders quit the council in response to Trump’s pro-fascist comments after the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12.Trumka, Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler and Executive Vice President Tefere Gebre were re-elected with no opposition. In 2009, Shuler became the first woman to hold the office of secretary-treasurer. Gebre, a Sudanese immigrant who begins his second term, is the first immigrant to hold his post.Need for a fightback program and strategyIn “Value, Price and Profit,” based on an 1865 speech, Karl Marx spoke about labor unions while Europe was in the midst of a mass strike wave for higher wages. Marx hailed this development and tore apart an argument that these struggles were pointless because higher wages would only lead to higher prices.Nevertheless, Marx saw the limitations of fighting for a bigger share of the value labor alone creates. “Instead of the conservative motto: A fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work!” Marx argued, the unions “ought to inscribe on their banner the revolutionary watchword: ‘Abolition of the wages system!’”Today, more than 150 years later, the AFL-CIO still has no anti-capitalist orientation. The Workers Bill of Rights, while it seeks to ameliorate the growing pauperization of the working class and its genocidal impact on the most oppressed, still boils down to the old “conservative motto.”For unions to really advance the interests of their membership and the broader working class, they need a program that challenges the capitalist system of exploitation. They need to recognize that the relationship between labor and capital is inherently antagonistic.Moreover, there was no serious deliberation on how to resist the ongoing assault on labor or the growth of white supremacy and extreme bigotry. Why not have a conversation about employing general strikes, political strikes, sit-downs and other militant, outside-the-box tactics to push back the whole right-wing agenda? Immigrant workers showed the way on May Day 2006.The convention took some positive steps in the direction of social justice unionism, in contrast to the narrow, pragmatic business unionism that has hamstrung the U.S. labor movement in the recent past. Showing concrete solidarity with Black Lives Matter was one important such step.However, much more is needed. Now is the time to revive militant class struggle politics and build a global movement of all working-class and oppressed people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The incident is the result of overnight winter weather changes throughout North Texas, leading to icy road conditions. A succession of vehicles were unable to come to a stop and crashed into each other. The crash involved 18-wheelers, MedStar and police vehicles, with many of the vehicles overlapping. 36 people were taken to the hospital from the nearly mile-long crash site. Judge rules in Meghan Markle’s favor on privacy claim against British tabloid FILE – In this Saturday March 7, 2020 file photo, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex with Prince Harry arrives at the Royal Albert Hall in London, to attend the Mountbatten Festival of Music. A British judge ruled Thursday Feb. 11, 2021, that a newspaper invaded Duchess of Sussex’s privacy by publishing personal letter to her estranged father. (Simon Dawson/Pool via AP, File)Meghan Markle’s case on privacy and copyright infringement has been granted in favor of the Duchess by a judge, according to People Magazine. The Duchess of Sussex’s claim is in response to The Sun’s publication of a private letter between Markle and her father. These articles were published in February 2019. Further court rulings will take place on March 2 to discuss outstanding matters in the case and the financial damages Markle will receive.New York Times reporter resigns after investigation Donald McNeil Jr., a reporter who worked for the New York Times for 45 years, has left the paper following recent backlash to a scandal that occurred in 2019. According to a Vanity Fair article, McNeil Jr. used a racial slur while chaperoning a New York Times led summer trip to Peru for students in the summer of 2019. On January 28, 2021, the Daily Beast published an article about the Peru trip with new comments from the students and their parents. This resulted in a petition from the New York Times staff to further investigate the incident, an eventual letter of apology from McNeil and his resignation from the paper on February 5. BBC News banned from broadcast in China China will no longer air BBC World News, saying the outlet does not follow impartial reporting standards for TV and radio, according to BBC News.
