In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. If you’re looking for dividend stocks for a starter ISA, there are plenty of blue-chip options in the FTSE 100 right now.However, investors need to be careful where they’re looking for income. Over the past few weeks, some of the index’s top income stocks have cut their dividends to conserve cash in the coronavirus outbreak.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…With that in mind, here are three FTSE 100 dividend stocks I’d buy today for a starter ISA.FTSE 100 dividend stocksInsurance and pension savings giant Aviva (LSE: AV) is one of the FTSE 100’s top dividend stocks.It does not look as if this is going to change any time soon. According to a recent trading update, the company’s solvency position is 175%. That’s including the payment of the final dividend for the year. Overall, the business has £2.4bn of excess cash.While it is too early to tell what impact the coronavirus outbreak will have on the business, management seems confident that the corporation can weather the storm. Aviva’s decision to pay its final dividend is notable when so many other companies have cancelled the payouts.As such, now could be a great time to snap up a share of this dividend stock a bargain price. It is currently dealing at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 5. On top of this, the shares yield 12%.That’s why Aviva stands out as one of the FTSE 100’s top dividend stocks.Asset management giantAnother one of the FTSE 100’s top dividend stocks I’d buy today is Legal & General Group (LSE: LGEN).As one of the largest asset and pension managers in the world, Legal’s size should help it pull through the current economic and market uncertainty relatively unscathed.So far, management has not commented on the group’s dividend sustainability. Nevertheless, the company reported a solvency ratio of 184% at the end of 2019, with £1.6bn of surplus cash.Most of Legal’s income comes from asset and pension management fees. So it has a steady income stream to fund operations.This suggests that the company’s dividend is not only secure but could return to growth next year when the economy recovers.Therefore, now could be an excellent time to buy the stock. It currently supports a dividend yield of nearly 10%. On top of this, the shares look dirt cheap. They’re dealing at a P/E of just 6. As dividend stocks go, this business looks highly attractive. Unique business Not all FTSE 100 dividend stocks are created equal. Phoenix Group (LSE: PHNX) for example, has a complex and uncommon business model.The largest closed life insurance and pension fund consolidator in Europe profits by managing pension funds and buying life insurance policies on the cheap.This provides the business with a steady stream of predictable income. The virus outbreak might have shut down large sections of the global economy, but pensions still need to be managed.Indeed, management has made the most of the opportunity offered by the recent decline in the share price by splashing out on shares in the business.Managers have spent nearly £250,000 buying stock in Phoenix over the past few weeks.These actions suggest that management believes Phoenix is a good investment at current levels. With a dividend yield of 7.6% on offer, it’s no surprise that insiders have been rushing to buy this FTSE 100 dividend champion. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

The forging of new relationships began with the Anglican Church of Korea, Uematsu said. The Korean church is hosting the EAM gathering.Uematsu and Diocese of New York Bishop Suffragan Allen K. Shin presented a joint keynote address. The theme of their remarks was “Celebrating Our Partnership: The History and Development of Asia-America Mission.”The two bishops spoke at the Cathedral of St. Mary and St. Nicholas in downtown Seoul, the main venue for the gathering, on a rainy morning when a downpour occasionally could be heard in the background.Other ENS coverage of the gathering is here.The text of Uematsu’s remarks follows.The Nippon Sei Ko Kai(NSKK, Anglican Church in Japan)The Nippon Sei Ko Kai (NSKK = the Anglican Church in Japan) was among the first Protestant churches established after Japan was re-opened to the world in 1854, ending 200 years of isolation.In June 1859, the Rev. Channing Moore Williams, missionary priest and later missionary bishop of the Episcopal Church, landed at Nagasaki, in southwestern Japan. Williams joined the Rev. John Riggins, who had docked at Nagasaki one month earlier, and the Anglican mission in Japan began.Six years ago, we celebrated the 150th anniversary of that beginning. For the 150th Anniversary celebration services and events held in Tokyo, we had a great pleasure to have your Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, with other distinguished guests like the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Rt. Honorable Rowan Williams, and the Primate of Anglican Church of Korea, Archbishop Paul Keun Sang Kim.The foundations of the Anglican church throughout the country were laid by four organizations: The Episcopal Church Board of Missions in the United States which sent John Riggins and Channing Moore Williams and many more to Japan; the Church Missionary Society (CMS) and the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel (SPG), both from England; and later the Anglican Church of Canada. These missionaries helped establish a rich and broadly catholic and evangelical tradition within the NSKK.The common vision of the missionaries was always the formation of an independent Japanese church supported by Japanese Anglicans. Owing to their insights and efforts, the first General Synod of the NSKK was held in Osaka in 1887. Now formally organized, the NSKK began pioneering work throughout Japan, in an environment of still considerable misunderstanding and prejudice against Christianity. In addition to planting churches, the NSSK was active in the fields of preschool child-care, secondary education, medicine, and social welfare. This work continues to this day, thanks to the efforts of the overseas missionaries as well as countless Japanese clergy and lay people. We express our heartfelt gratitude for their dedication.Roughly fifty years after Channing Williams’ arrival, Japan began a marked turn towards becoming a militaristic nation, as symbolized by the forced annexation of Korea by Japan in 1910. The flow of events during this period was indeed overwhelming, as Japan engaged in armed conflict and undertook a program of occupying and colonizing neighboring Asian countries. The church, lacking a clear understanding of the Christian faith and the Gospel, using the form of “Special Prayer Service for Shina-Jihen (China Incident)” and “Special Prayer for Dai-Towa War (Great Asia War)” prayed for victory and proved unable to speak out against these events. Thus the NSKK approved the occupation of other nations and contributed to the war in the name of Christianity.(China-Incident: total scale China-Japan war provoked by the July 7th battle near Beijing. Japan called the wars “incidents” in China because it did not declare them officially. Great Asia War: naming of the Asia Pacific War by the Imperial Japanese government. It implies the understanding of the character of the war as “liberating Asian nations from the colonization of the West”. The word is being used even today by those who deny the historical fact of Japan’s aggression.)Moreover, in 1941, the Japanese government expelled all foreign clergy and missionaries from the country, and the unity of the NSKK itself was shaken by the desperate reactions to the government’s attempt to force all Protestant churches together into a single umbrella organization. Even as we are mindful of the hardships faced by our brothers and sisters in the church during that period, we must also continue to remember this painful history.After Japan’s defeat in 1945, the country entered a period of rebuilding “from the ashes.” Free at last from long years of oppression under a militaristic government, there was a period when Christianity attracted the hearts of many Japanese people, and the Church once again found a role as a means of contact with Western culture. However, as the nation rallied the populace toward accelerated economic growth, and with the emergence of a materialistic consumer society, the identity of the church, too, underwent a dramatic transformation.The Pan-Anglican Congress held in 1963 in Toronto, Canada proposed to the Anglican world the idea of the “mutual responsibility and interdependence” of the various Anglican churches worldwide. By 1970, missionaries from overseas Anglican churches, who had contributed so much to the work of evangelization in Japan, had nearly all returned to their home countries. The NSKK, both as a province and at the parish level, was no longer a “receiving church” dependent on overseas support, but rather was called to bear mutual responsibility and become a spiritually, administratively and financially independent church among many in the global Anglican Communion. The NSKK became a self-supporting province in 1972.At the same time, influenced by ongoing changes in the world social order as well as in thinking about mission, the NSKK searched for a renewed ecclesiological shape. A new Prayer Book (1990) and Hymnal (2006) arose out of this quest. Also during this period, while respecting the differences in theological convictions, the NSKK also recognized the ordination of women to the priesthood (1998). The NSKK today is made up of nearly 280Churches in 11 dioceses, claiming roughly 51,000 members, including over 220 active clergy.At the same time, the NSKK began to look back over the events leading up to the Asia-Pacific War. We especially felt called to repent and seek reconciliation and deeper engagement with our neighbors in countries throughout Asia who had first suffered under Japanese occupation and colonization, and then been made subject to economic control under Japan’s post-war development.We were especially blessed by our fellow Anglicans in the Anglican Church of Korea (ACK), who opened their hearts to us even before Japan had come to terms with and apologized for its role in the colonization of the Korean peninsula. As brothers and sisters sharing the same faith, even as the ACK drew our attention to the inadequacies and errors of Japan’s historical awareness, they also opened the door to exchanges between individuals, churches, dioceses, and at the provincial level. Last year the NSKK and the Anglican Church of Korea together celebrated the 30th anniversary of Korea-Japan Anglican Mission Partnership in Jeju Island, Korea. Since 2007, through an inter-provincial agreement, clergy from the Anglican Church of Korea who sense a calling to evangelism in Japan are now serving in areas throughout Japan. We have welcomed over 20 such missioners to date.With regard to Taiwan, China, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, and other countries which also suffered under Japanese wartime occupation, the NSKK has sought reconciliation and a restoration of our bonds under the same Lord, Jesus Christ. At the same time, we have been blessed by the wealth of faith-filled experiences of our brothers and sisters in these countries.In 1972, after walking a path of suffering separated from the Japanese mainland for 27 years, Okinawa was returned to Japanese control, and the Diocese of Okinawa became part of the NSKK. Even now, though, the Okinawan people continue to suffer under the intense strain of the presence of U.S. military bases. We take seriously the challenges to peace pointed up by their struggle, and are keenly aware of being called to work toward realizing the peace that is in Jesus Christ.Let me go back to the issue of NSKK’s repentance and reconciliation in relation to the partnership with the Anglican Church of Korea, because I believe it is the most crucial and turning point for making a new vision of the mission of the NSKK. This year of 2015 is the 70th anniversary of the end of the WW2. For Japan, it is the 70th year of the defeat, but for Korea, it is the 70th anniversary of the liberation and emancipation from Japanese colonization. As I said, last year, the NSKK and the Anglican Church of Korea celebrated the 30th anniversary of our mission partnership together. Before we began official partnership in 1984, both churches had experienced very difficult time, in which we were suffering from the scars and pain caused by the war. Atrocities committed by Japan during the invasion of Korean Peninsula by Japanese Army and forced Annexation of Korea to Japan caused among the Koreans pain, grudge, sorrow and humiliation. Before our two churches agreed to begin the official relationship, only few people had been trying to build the bridge between Korean church and Japanese church. Although we were neighbors and Anglicans, we simply could not come close to each other for 40 years. Even after we started the official relationship, we admit that the work of reconciliation between two churches was not easy. There have been a lot of tension, torment, embarrassment, disappointment, and even anger in the course of making new relationship. Sometimes, our joint programs came to a deadlock.But now, we can tell you many stories of grace which we rejoice and celebrate as a result of walking together the path of reconciliation. Bishops of two churches are all good friends, and if the consecration of bishop takes place either in Japan or in Korea, most of bishops likely participate in the laying of hands.Youth seminars and camps are jointly held, and they learn from each other and become friends. Some Japanese youth go to college or seminary in Korea. In the NSKK, now about 20 Korean priests are working. Four years ago, when the Great East-Japan Earthquake struck north-east part of Japan, many Korean clergy including Archbishop Paul Kim and lay persons and youth groups visited the affected areas to help those victims, churches, and church activities. It was a sign of our good relationship and solidarity. Because two churches experienced the war and its aftermath, now we are launching together to make ourselves to be the instrument of peace.We have co-hosted the Anglican Peace Conference twice: one in Paju, Korea, and one in Okinawa, Japan.Last December, on one Sunday, I was a preacher at the Cathedral in Seoul. It was the first time that a Japanese bishop preached at the Seoul Cathedral after the war. It took 70 years to make it happen, but it was a definite progress of our reconciliation processIn order to engage in the work of reconciliation with our neighbors, especially with the Korean Church, there needed the scrutiny of our history and church’s involvement in that history. It was the most difficult task for us. However, without this process, we could not have gone forward. In 1995, the year of the 50th Anniversary of the end of the Asia-Pacific War, the NSKK held the Mission Consultation to discuss and evaluate our past as the church in Japan. Under the theme of “Responsibility for History and Prospects for the 21st Century,” we admitted our war responsibility; based on repentance and looking toward the 21st century, we determined to walk with those who were historically persecuted and victimized during the war and still discriminated against, including Koreans in Japan. Furthermore, at the NSKK 49th General Synod held in the following year, 1996, we adopted the Nippon Sei Ko Kai’s Statement on War Responsibility” and all churches agreed to collectively share NSKK’s war responsibility, convey an apology in the name of NSKK to the churches in the countries which Japan had invaded, and to start and continue a program in each diocese and parish to review the historical facts and deepen our understanding of the Gospel. Admitting our own guilt and sin is always the most difficult thing. However then, only from then, we can go on repentance and then we can experience the blessing that we are forgiven.Four years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami struck on March 11, 2011. The NSKK immediately organized a project called “Issho ni aruko”, which means “Let us walk together” to help the victims. As the NSKK had decided in the War Responsibility Statement, we have been trying to live and to be with those who are marginalized or have been forced to live in very difficult conditions because of the disaster. We are very appreciative that many people overseas contributed for the work of “Let us walk together.” I would like to say on this occasion thank you to our friends in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Korea. Presiding Bishop Katharine and Archbishop Paul Kim were among many people who actually visited the affected area to be with the victims, to pray for them, and to cry with them.The aftermath of the accident of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station is still going on. We have not resolved nor yet found a certain direction to resolve the problem. Even now, people were forced to leave their homes, and families were broken up while suffering from the fear of health-harming radioactive contamination. The NSKK have decided to walk together with the nuclear victims and to establish the No-Nuke Project.As we mark this 156th year of an Anglican presence in Japan, in many ways it seems that we have failed to adequately sustain the tremendous energy that the missionaries first brought to mission and evangelization in this country. It seems we have not yet been able to give adequate expression to our faith as those who live in Japanese society. We face declines in the numbers of both lay members and clergy, and our congregations as a whole are aging — problems which cannot be solved overnight. Throughout the country, in spite of the lack of priests at many churches, Sunday worship has continued to be carried out by a small number of lay people. We give thanks for the dedicated service of these people, and ask for the Lord’s special blessing on them.And yet, in the midst of these conditions, there have continued to be enthusiastic, energetic gatherings of young people in our church, both locally and at National Youth Conferences.As we have looked back over the great blessings God has bestowed on the NSKK over the past 156 years, we have reflected on what this church has accomplished, on what we intended but failed to do, and on many things we simply did not consider.Just as worship is called “the work of the people” (leitourgia), the church is above all the community of the people of God. We are called to be instruments carrying the Good News and the love of Christ to the world. As such, wherever we might be, we are gathered together in worship, nourished by the Word and the Eucharist, and sent out into society. The work of the laity is therefore equally as important as that of the clergy. The church does not exist only for its own sake, but is also called to seek the presence and action of God in the world, particularly among the least in society, and to serve the world. This work is carried out not only within the NSKK, but also in dialogue and mission collaboration with churches in other traditions.Even though the NSKK is a small flock, in the midst of a world experiencing deep pain and division, the rest of the Anglican Communion looks to us to continue proclaiming a message of peace and reconciliation, grounded in our own repentance. At the same time, as we saw at the Lambeth Conference in 2008, we believe God is asking us to walk together with the worldwide Anglican family, with all its diverse gifts. We must be willing to share with one another, willing to take the time to listen to one another’s different experiences. We believe this is the shape our church must take in the 21st century.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

In May, the General Synod in New Zealand passed a “compromise” resolution on the blessing of same-sex civil marriages in a move that was designed to allow both theological conservatives and those campaigning for change to stay in the same church. But a number of Anglicans have responded to the vote by saying that they were seeking to leave the Church as a result of the decision.Read the full article here.

Campaign group to challenge ban on TV political advertising in European Court of Human Rights

The campaign group will argue that the UK’s advertising laws do not comply with the right to freedom of expression guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights.ADI was prevented from broadcasting a TV advertisement in the UK, part of its ‘My Mate’s a primate’ campaign. It was responding to a TV advert by soft drinks company Pepsi which used a performing chimpanzee. ADI’s advert featured a voice-over by comedian Alexei Sayle and highlighted abuses of performing apes. In 2008 the House of Lords today dismissed an appeal by ADI to have the ban overturned.The campaign group’s challenge will now be heard on 7 March 2012 by a seven judge Grand Chamber, bypassing the usual procedure because it is deemed to raise a serious question affecting the interpretation of the Convention.ADI is being represented in Strasbourg by Tamsin Allen, Media partner at Bindmans LLP. She said: “The UK is defending a very wide blanket ban on broadcast advertising by campaign groups, which includes many charities. ADI, a peaceful campaigning group, has been banned from broadcasting its advertisement on the grounds that the group seeks to influence public opinion on a matter of controversy. This cannot be justified given the importance of freedom of expression in a healthy democracy.“Commercial companies are free to advertise their products no matter how controversial they may be, but charities and campaign groups cannot. This is fundamentally unfair and creates a distorted message for UK TV viewers.”Jan Creamer, ADI’s Chief Executive, is confident that the case will be won, saying that this “will allow ADI, and similar campaign and advocacy groups to put their message across on television and radio, and continue to be allowed to enrich the UK’s democratic life. It is unfair that companies can place advertisements that cannot be challenged.”www.ad-international.org About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Trolley numbers down in Limerick hospital

first_imgUniversity Hospital Limerick in Dooradoyle. Photo Emma Jervis / Press 22 Advertisement A STUDY carried out by the Irish Nutses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) has shown that the number of people waiting for beds on trolleys in the emergency department of the University Hospital Limerick (UHL) has reduced slightly.In February of last year, 709  patients had to wait on trolleys in the emergency department or wards while last month there were 630. This is still considerably higher than February 2013 when there were 534 on trollies.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up On a countrywide basis, the numbers fell by 8 per cent but an INMO spokesperson said that the the increasing figures in some hospitals confirm that the system continues to be under unsustainable pressure. INMO General Secretary Liam Doran said: “While this marginal reduction is welcome, the figures confirm we continue to face a deep crisis with regard to overcrowding in emergency departments.The INMO has convened a national meeting of its representatives in emergency departments across the country for Wednesday of next week to review the local implementation of the recent agreement.   53 patients waiting for beds at UHL Twitter Updated statement on service disruptions UL Hospitals Group WhatsApp Email Print 64 patients waiting for beds in UHL Previous articleSoccer: Students taught a lesson by rampant LimerickNext articleLimerick tunes up for International Band Championship Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.

Oteil Burbridge & Marco Benevento Cover Grateful Dead, Allman Bros With Tom Hamilton [Watch]

first_imgThis past Sunday night, Tom Hamilton brought along his American Babies for what turned out to be a rocker of a Dead & Company after-party at Boulder, CO’s The Fox Theatre, with some great special guests keeping the place electrified for a night of music.Grahame Lesh and his Midnight North cohorts played a solid opening set of original Americana rock tunes, which included their own “Phoenix Motel” from Scarlet Skies, and a cover of Crosby, Stills, and Nash‘s “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” (they will be playing special tribute shows to CSNY at Brooklyn Bowl on July 29th and in San Fran on Aug. 12th). The group invited Hamilton out for a rousing cover of the Grateful Dead‘s “Viola Lee Blues,” and finished the set strong on “The Highway Song,” which featured beautiful vocals from singer Elliott Peck.With a packed house ready to keep the party going, American Babies did not disappoint. Their set began with original Babies songs “Fever Dreams” and “What Does It Mean To Be” from their latest release, An Epic Battle Between Light and Dark, before digging into T-Ham’s back catalog with Brothers Past‘s “Too Late To Call”, which turned the venue into a veritable dance party. If one thing is for certain, the current lineup of Hamilton on lead guitar/vocals, along with guitarist Justin Mazer, drummer Al Smith, acoustic guitarist/vocalist Raina Mullen, and bassist Mark Sosnoskie is a force to be reckoned with and completely locked in at this point in time. Will Trask from Denver-based funk act RunniKine joined the group on this special night for some additional help on percussion.Tom Hamilton Talks Almost Dead, American Babies & An Epic Battle Between Light And DarkAs billed, Hamilton’s fellow Joe Russo’s Almost Dead bandmate Marco Benevento joined the fray on “Old Time Religion” which led into his own “At The Show” from the mad scientist’s 2014 album Swift. Later on in the set, Dead & Co bassist Oteil Burbridge joined the group for a beautiful cover of The Allman Brothers Band‘s “Blue Sky,” which had everyone in the audience elated, and featured a sweet solo from Justin Mazer, along with great interplay between him, Hamilton, and Burbridge.With both Burbridge and Benevento sticking around on stage, the ensemble played an inspired “Eyes of the World” which kept the positive vibes going inside The Fox. A “Deal” encore brought the show to a successful end as everyone made their way out on the streets of Boulder. This was certainly the icing on the cake for what was an epic weekend in Colorado.[all photos courtesy of Joshua Elioseff – Dancer Productions Photography]Setlist: Midnight North at The Fox Theatre, Boulder, CO – 7/3/16One Night Stand – EPRoamin – AllWind & Roses – GLPhoenix Motel – EPSuite: Judy Blue Eyes – AllEveryday – GLViola Lee Blues – All w Tom HThe Highway Song – EPSetlist: Tom Hamilton’s American Babies at The Fox Theatre, Boulder, CO – 7/3/16Fever DreamsWhat Does It Mean To BeToo Late To CallSynth Driver Old Time Religion* >At The Show*^Blue Sky*%#Eyes Of The World*%Encore: Deal*%* with Marco Benevento^ Marco Benevento original (first time played)% with Oteil Burbridge # Allman Brothers original (first time played) Load remaining imageslast_img read more
