Forget a cash ISA! I think this is one of the best UK shares to buy now

I think this is one of the best UK shares to buy now Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! With the interest rates paid by cash ISAs taking another lurch down recently, there isn’t much advantage to the savings vehicle anymore. But many shares are paying useful and growing dividends. I’d rather put money in a Stocks and Shares ISA. And within it, I reckon Bunzl (LSE: BNZL) is one of the best UK shares to buy now.Why I reckon Bunzl is one of the best UK shares to buy nowThe FTSE 100 company trades as a specialist international distribution and services provider. In some ways, the company provides a service that keeps the wheels of industry turning. Businesses and organisations turn to Bunzl when they need the non-food and not-for-resale products they use themselves, such as chemicals, safety consumables, bandages, gloves, labels, films, grocery, packaging, and products for cleaning and hygiene.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…What impresses me is the resilience of the business. Indeed, Bunzl has a long, multi-year record of generally rising revenue, earnings and cash flow. And the directors seem proud when they speak of the firm’s unbroken 27-year record of annual rises in the shareholder dividend. And I’m optimistic that record will continue in the years ahead, which is why I was so keen to see today’s trading update from the company.The update covers the period from 30 June. The directors report “strong” overall growth over a “challenging” period. Indeed, underlying revenue in the third quarter increased by 8% year on year at constant currency exchange rates. Given the Covid-19 pandemic, I reckon that’s a remarkable performance when we consider how many other businesses have been struggling.Indeed, Bunzl is something of a coronavirus gainer. Sales have been driven higher by demand for masks, sanitisers, gloves, and disinfectants. But organic growth isn’t the whole story. Acquisitions contributed 4%, including the recent addition of MCR Safety, at the beginning of September. That investment continues a long history of bolt-on acquisitions that have helped Bunzl grow like a seemingly unstoppable snowball.A robust outlookAs if the news isn’t already good enough, the directors point out in the report the third quarter had fewer trading days than the comparable period in 2019. The effect of that was to reduce the revenue-growth figure by 3.2%.Like many successful distributors, Bunzl has developed big lines in own-brand products. And 17.5% of the growth in revenue came from the top eight Covid-19-related products, which are “primarily own-brand”. The directors reckon that growth “more than” off-set a 9.5% decline in revenue from other products. But to put that in context, the decline in revenue from other products was less than the decline in the second quarter. The directors reckon that reflects the easing of pandemic-related restrictions.Looking ahead, the company acknowledges the uncertainty regarding the ongoing pandemic. Nevertheless, it expects revenue in the second half of the year to grow “strongly”  and the profit margin will likely be “slightly higher” in the second half.Meanwhile, with the share price near 2,589p, the forward-looking earnings multiple for 2021 is just below 20 and the anticipated dividend yield is a little over 2%. I see this as a decent long-term hold in a diversified portfolio.

El Consejo Ejecutivo concluye cuatro días de ‘una reunión llena…

first_img Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Miembros del Consejo Ejecutivo y del personal de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera toman un vídeo el 16 de noviembre para Dabney Smith, obispo de la Diócesis del Suroeste de la Florida y miembro Consejo, que se encontraba ausente de la reunión por motivos de salud. El Rdo. Frank Logue, miembro del Consejo proveniente de la Diócesis de Georgia, sirvió de videógrafo. Foto de Jim Simons/vía Facebook[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] Durante su reunión celebrada aquí del 15 al 18 de noviembre, los miembros del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal, rieron, lloraron, cantaron, tomaron fotos y vídeos y trabajaron con lo que el obispo primado Michael B. Curry definió como la sensación de estar “gozosos en Jesucristo”.“Esta fue una buena reunión”, dijo Curry en una conferencia de prensa luego de concluida la reunión. “Fue una reunión llena de júbilo, pero el júbilo, a diferencia de la felicidad vertiginosa, es algo más profundo. No se trata tan sólo de una respuesta para estar alegre en el barrio. El júbilo tiene que ver con nuestro regocijo de estar en Jesucristo. De manera que podríamos estar jubilosos y ser serios respecto a la obra que Dios nos ha encomendado”.Curry dijo que la labor del Consejo se hizo “en el contexto de un compromiso real y profundo de seguir el camino de Jesús; de asumirlo con mayor seriedad y de ahondar aún más en ello y de comprometerse con la evangelización en el mejor sentido de esa palabra, evangelización y reconciliación racial como el comienzo de formas más amplias de reconciliación humana”.Los miembros del Consejo lloraron por los recientes ataques en París y Beirut y cuando se enteraron de las experiencias transformadoras de una reciente peregrinación de jóvenes adultos a Ferguson, Misurí, dijo Curry.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, hizo notar que esta era fundamentalmente una reunión organizacional para el Consejo. El [trienio] 2016-2018 no ha comenzado todavía, pero 19 nuevos miembros, cuyo período expira en 2021, se unieron a sus colegas cuyos períodos terminan en 2018 para dar inicio a su servicio. Los cinco comités permanentes conjuntos del Consejo comenzaron a examinar el alcance de su quehacer para el próximo trienio y examinaron las resoluciones de la Convención General que se les remitieron para ser puestas en vigor en los próximos tres años, dijo ella.Jennings le dijo al Consejo en sus palabras de clausura que apreciaba lo que llamó el espíritu “generoso” de la reunión y recordó a los miembros que habían estado hablando de ser elásticos en respuesta al cambio. “Yo sí espero que abracemos la noción de ser elásticos”, recalcó.El llamado de la Convención General a la Iglesia de concentrarse en la evangelización y la reconciliación racial estuvo constantemente presente mientras el Consejo se organizaba. Curry rehusó admitir durante la conferencia de prensa que era el organizador de ese llamado dual, al afirmar que la Convención “habló con una notable claridad que yo realmente creo que es del espíritu de Dios”, dijo el Obispo Primado. “No fue sólo Michael Curry. Creo que esto fue más grande que Michael Curry; esto fue la Convención General”.El obispo primado Michael B. Curry escucha un debate del Consejo Ejecutivo durante la reunión del grupo que tuvo lugar del 15 al 18 de noviembre en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo en Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Foto de Jim Simons/vía FacebookCurry añadió que la evangelización y la reconciliación racial están “íntimamente relacionadas”, haciendo notar que el Espíritu Santo juntó a diversos grupos en Pentecostés. Esos grupos terminaron por encontrar un camino para convertirse en una nueva comunidad basada en el sentir de que los que siguen a Jesús son una familia. “Esta es la obra del evangelio y nuestra Convención General reafirmó la renovación de esa obra”, apuntó.Tanto Curry como Jennings describieron el modo en el que ven la labor de la Iglesia en el proceso de evangelización y reconciliación racial. El Obispo Primado dijo que él concibe a la Iglesia Episcopal dedicada a la evangelización en dos niveles. Uno se centraría en plantar y formar nuevas iglesias, así como en ayudar a las iglesias existentes a encontrar modos de expandir su alcance en las comunidades circundantes. La segunda parte del trabajo, agregó, debe conllevar formar como seguidores de Jesús a “los episcopales que se sientan en los bancos un domingo tras otro”, de manera que ellos vivan deliberadamente como cristianos y crezcan en la auténtica “capacidad de compartir y dar testimonio de la fe que hay en ellos”, recalcó.“Eso es probablemente el impacto más duradero y el que tomará más tiempo y más esfuerzo deliberado”, agregó.Cuando las personas aprenden a contar sus relatos de fe, ayudan a edificar “una Iglesia que se manifiesta viva de varias maneras nuevas”, dijo Curry, añadiendo que esos individuos episcopales entonces “tendrán un impacto en el mundo y en las vidas [de otros] de maneras que nunca podríamos programar”.Imagínense, dijo, si los casi dos millones de episcopales hicieran esto. “Podríamos cambiar el mundo”.Jennings dijo que la reconciliación racial “es una serie de asuntos e intereses inmensamente compleja, y existen numerosas vías para sumergirnos en esto”. La Resolución C019 de la Convención encarga al Presidente y Vicepresidente de ambas cámaras de la Convención “a conducir, dirigir y estar presentes para garantizar y dar cuenta de la labor de justicia y reconciliación raciales de la Iglesia”, apuntó Jennings.Esos funcionarios, además del Rdo. Michael Barlowe en su papel de secretario de la Convención, han estado reuniéndose para discutir cómo llevar la Iglesia hacia delante, dijo ella. Resultó claro, afirmó Jennings, que era importante atender el consejo de Byron Rushing, vicepresidente de los Diputados, quien instó que “antes de que comenzáramos a planificar, necesitábamos escuchar y escuchar intensa y cuidadosamente a las personas que se encuentran a la vanguardia llevando a cabo esta tarea, los cuales pueden conformar cualquier plan o estrategia que desarrollemos para comprometer a todos los episcopales en esta obra vital basada en el evangelio”.Los funcionarios están preparando algunas audiencias y elaborando una lista de personas a quienes quieren escuchar. Jennings predijo que el grupo tendría más información que compartir con la Iglesia en el primer trimestre de 2016.El Consejo tomo la iniciativa de hacer su propia labor en torno a la reconciliación racial durante una sesión del 16 de noviembre con la profesora Keri Day, de la Escuela de Teología Brite. Day enfrentó al Consejo con su opinión de que la Iglesia ha estado y sigue estando situada en lo que ella llamó el “ideal democrático racista de Estados Unidos”.Muchos cristianos liberales, así como muchos estadounidenses liberales en general, creen que el ideal democrático es un “proyecto moral” del cual él país se ha desviado, dijo Day. Sin embargo, agregó, ese ideal se arraiga en lo que ella llamó supremacía blanca. Tal supremacía responde a la manera en que el poder económico y político favorece a los blancos en Estados Unidos y excluye sistemáticamente a los demás.“Debemos decir la verdad acerca de nosotros mismos”, dijo Keri Day, profesora de teología en la Escuela de Teología Brite, instando al Consejo a reconocer que la Iglesia cristiana ha sido cómplice de la construcción de la sociedad estadounidense. Foto de la Escuela de Teología BritePor consiguiente, dijo ella, siempre ha habido una “auténtica barbarie darwiniana” en el tuétano de la construcción de la cultura estadounidense. Los estadounidenses han dejado de valorar todas las vidas [por igual] en su concepción de la democracia desde el comienzo mismo.“Debemos decir la verdad sobre nosotros mismos”, siguió diciendo Day, e instando al Consejo a reconocer que la Iglesia cristiana ha sido cómplice de la sociedad estadounidense y que “el pasado racista de la Iglesia es el presente racista de la Iglesia”.El decir tales verdades, reconoció ella, puede ser arriesgado. Y algunos miembros del Consejo dijeron durante su discusión con Day que ellos se preguntan cómo alentar a las congregaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal a luchar contra el racismo en EE.UU. y en su propio seno.Heidi Kim, Misionera para la reconciliación racial de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, moderó una discusión entre los miembros del Consejo y el personal [de la DFMS] después de la presentación de Day. Ella sugirió que cada persona probablemente reaccionará de manera diferente a lo que Day había dicho. Para algunos, se trataba de “información completamente nueva” y para otros “es el tipo de cosa de la que hemos estado leyendo y haciendo y participando y en la que hemos estado inmersos hasta las orejas durante mucho tiempo, e intentando hablar al respecto sin llegar a ninguna parte”. Ninguna de las experiencias en ese espectro de reacciones es correcta o errónea y ninguna es para expertos o principiantes.“El propósito de la presentación de la Dra. Day en el día de hoy fue insuflar el Espíritu Santo en medio nuestro”, dijo ella.El Muy Rdo. Brian Baker, miembro del Consejo por la VIII Provincia, dijo que escuchar la presentación de Day constituía un paso importante en la obtención, por parte del Consejo, de un modelo de cómo la Iglesia Episcopal podía llevar a cabo esta tarea. “Si esperamos que la Iglesia Episcopal lo llegue a hacer bien, debemos ser capaces de hacerlo bien”, afirmó.“No creo que haya para nosotros nada más importante que hacer que abrazar esta tarea”, dijo David Bailey, obispo de Navajolandia. “Si la hacemos bien, es algo que podremos aportarle al resto de la Iglesia. Pero mientras no estemos dispuestos a avanzar e invertir el tiempo, la energía y el dolor que esto conlleva, todo el trabajo que hagamos en el Consejo Ejecutivo en verdad carecerá de importancia”. Hacer esa labor, dijo Bailey, “sería verdaderamente un don para el resto de la Iglesia”.Miembros del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Finanzas para el Ministerio del Consejo Ejecutivo y su Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Defensa Social e Interconexiones para la Misión deliberan el 17 de noviembre en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo en Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceEn otras decisiones tomadas el 18 de noviembre, el Consejo también* Oyó un informe sobre la Peregrinación de Jóvenes Adultos a Ferguson, Misurí, que tuvo lugar del 8 al 12 de octubre, presentado por tres miembros del personal, incluidos Kim, Chuck Wynder, misionero de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera [DFMS] para la justicia social y la participación en la defensa social, y Bronwyn Skov, encargada de la DFMS para el ministerio de la juventud. Kim dijo que la peregrinación se propuso ser una experiencia de transformación y formación espirituales más que una conferencia o una sesión de capacitación o de activismo. El objetivo de los planificadores, según Skov, no fue proporcionarle a los jóvenes adultos una experiencia desde la cumbre, sino más bien crear “un espacio muy incómodo en el cual el Espíritu Santo tuviera la posibilidad de establecerse y de obrar”. El personal estuvo disponible para ayudar a los peregrinos en lo que necesitaran. Tal y como resultó, dijo ella, “hubo muchísimo expresión de culpa de parte de los blancos en el salón a la cual muchos de nosotros no sabíamos como enfrentarnos. Wynder dijo que el grupo “trascendió el binario blanco y negro”. De los 25 participantes, 10 eran blancos, 10 eran negros y los cinco restantes eran latinos, nativoamericanos y oriundos de las islas del Pacífico.Warren Wong, miembro del Consejo, habla ante una reunión conjunta el 17 de noviembre del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Finanzas para el Ministerio del Consejo Ejecutivo y su Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Defensa Social e Interconexiones para la Misión en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo en Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS* Eligió a los nuevos miembros del Consejo, Warren Wong y Ed Konieczny, obispo de Oklahoma, para integrar el Comité Ejecutivo del Consejo.* Oyó que Curry y Jennings han establecido un comité de revisión legal ad hoc para evaluar las actuales funciones legales, así como las necesidades legales tanto del Consejo como de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera. El comité se crea con antelación al nuevo cargo de Director Encargado de Asuntos Legales que la convención creó mediante una revisión del Canon 1.4. El cambio canónico entra en vigor en enero. El comité ad hoc también elaborará un contenido de trabajo para el proceso.* Se reunió en sesión ejecutiva por unos 45 minutos durante la mañana. Al ir a entrar a la sesión a puertas cerradas, la miembro del consejo Fredrica Thompsett dijo que la sesión “consideraría un par de asuntos enunciados en el informe del obispo Stacy, uno concerniente a Haití y el otro concerniente a algunos problemas de los funcionarios y el personal”. El obispo Stacy Sauls, director de Operaciones, había hablado ante el Consejo el 17 de noviembre acerca de la organización y responsabilidades del personal denominacional. Su presentación fue parte de la típica orientación del Consejo que tiene lugar al comienzo de cada trienio.Un resumen de las resoluciones aprobadas por el Consejo se encuentran aquí.La reunión del 15 al 18 de noviembre tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo.En el transcurso de la última sesión matutina del 18 de noviembre, Barlowe les dijo a los miembros que habían encontrado una grabadora de audio oculta en el suelo del pleno cerca de la mesa donde él, Curry, Jennings y otros miembros habían estado sentados durante las sesiones plenarias. Él le pidió a los miembros de del Consejo que revisaran los tableros de sus mesas y que miraran debajo de ellas por si hubiera cualquier aparato adicional. Barlowe dijo también que su personal estaba chequeando a ver si había cintas grabadas de seguridad que pudieran revisarse para determinar lo que ocurrió.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1)(a). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente y el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados.– La Rda.

The project for Lot B1 of the Saint Denis Confluence urban project is located on the south side of the West Square in front of the RER Saint Denis station. It is one of the first projects to be built in this new district, and is a natural extension of the overarching vision of the coordinating urban planners. Thanks to its location, it is exceptionnaly visible from the front square of the railway station. The building takes full advantage of this location on the square, while masking effects and shadows created by inserting the building between the public space and the sun are minimized in order to ensure the highest possible quality of housing. Save this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!SchemasIt is a relatively compact building aligned along the streets, it can be considered from different angles: its urban presence, its multi-functional street level that enlivens the public space, and as the part of a built environment encircling a central interior garden. Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraA large vertical fault opens a passage out of the north façade, revealing a less massive silhouette from the far end of the square, and allowing the planted, sunny interior of the block to be felt all the way from the station. Light and sun can therefore shine through from the south to the square and diminish the shadows cast by the building.

She can be reached via  461 total views,  3 views today “We’re delighted with the continuing work we are doing with the British Heart Foundation. We’re starting to see an influx of brands changing their engagement strategies, using publically available information to build upon conversations and deliver personalised video campaigns from the outset. By engaging with fundraisers on the platforms they already use; Facebook, Twitter, eCRM, charities can drive donations, encourage loyalty and amplify the sharing of content.” British Heart Foundation saw donations increase by 14% with a video personalisation campaign for its London to Brighton charity bike ride last month.The increase was in comparison to the same week the previous year, and was also personalised video campaign specialist EchoMany’s first integration with JustGiving.The JustGiving implementation was part of a new engagement strategy for the British Heart Foundation. To engage fundraisers around the charity bike ride, the campaign used fundraisers’ JustGiving public profile data, dynamically embedding the information, such as photos and target donations, into videos, which were hosted on landing pages. Links to the landing pages were then emailed to each subscriber encouraging them to share the content. 70% emails were opened, 63% visited landing pages and 40% opted to download or share videos on social media.Athar Abidi, Social Media Manager at the British Heart Foundation said:“It’s increasingly important for us to engage in dialogue with our fundraisers. As part of our strategy to drive fundraising, we want to be innovative and use new methods that help our fundraisers encourage more donations as well as thanking them for their incredible support and efforts. Following the success of the London to Brighton bike ride campaign and our previous campaigns with EchoMany we are looking at how else we can use personalised video to support our campaigns.”EchoMany’s video personalisation platform is being used by ten of the UK’s largest not-for-profit organisations, with campaigns for the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, National Lottery and UNICEF UK.Tim Redgate, Co-founder at EchoMany said: Advertisement Personalised video campaign results in 14% uplift in donations for BHF  462 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis67last_img read more

first_img News July 7, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities take a month to react to death threats against environmental journalist Follow the news on Brazil April 15, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information to go further Reporters Without Borders condemns the sluggish reaction of the police in Niterói (in Rio de Janeiro state) to repeated death threats against environmentalist Vilmar Berna (photo), the editor of the Jornal do Meio Ambiente daily newspaper. The police took more than a month to pass his complaint on to the local judicial authorities BrazilAmericas April 27, 2021 Find out more Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil Receive email alerts RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today condemned the sluggish reaction of the police in Niterói (in Rio de Janeiro state) to a complaint about repeated death threats and intimidation which journalist and environmentalist Vilmar Berna filed on 7 June and which was not passed on to the local judicial authorities until 5 July.“The authorities did not take the case seriously until a national newspaper ran an article about it,” the press freedom organisation said. “Yet Berna is a recognised specialist in environmental issues who had already been threatened in the past and even had to leave Niterói twice. How is it that the police and judicial authorities reacted so slowly although they had to be aware of the case?”Reporters Without Borders added: “As well as a judicial investigation, we call for an administrative investigation to establish exactly how these breaches of procedures occurred.”The editor of a daily newspaper about the environment called the Jornal do Meio Ambiente, which has a magazine (Revista do Meio Ambiente) and a website (Portal do Meio Ambiente), Berna also helped found Rebia, the Brazilian Environmental News Network. He covers water pollution, illegal fishing and threats to protected marine fauna in Rio de Janeiro bay. It was Berna who revealed that fishermen were using fine-mesh nets that are banned.A blood-stained, partially-charred body was left outside his home in Niterói at the beginning of May. Since then, he has been threatened repeatedly. He received many anonymous phone calls from a woman warning him that he would soon be killed. A friend told him he had heard that preparations were under way to beat him to death and throw his body in the sea. Then, six men forced their way into his home on the night of 27 May and threatened him.After filing a complaint with the Niterói police on 7 June, Berna hired two bodyguards to protect his home. But he subsequently had to let them go because he did not have enough money to keep paying them. The daily A Folha de Sao Paulo ran a story about him on 2 July and the next day he wrote to national human rights secretary Paulo de Tarso Vannuchi.Berna told Reporters Without Borders the authorities finally began to take action after the media reports about his case. His complaint was finally transferred to the local judicial authorities on 5 July, a month after he had filed it.
