Tuesday 4 January 2011 7:37 pm Mortgage approvals edge up KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share MORTGAGE approvals unexpectedly increased to their largest number in four months in November, the Bank of England revealed yesterday.The Bank also released data on the money supply, with its favoured measure increasing by 0.2 per cent on the previous month, and 3.5 per cent year-on-year in the three months to November.And after a fall in October, the number of loans for house purchases rose to 48,019 for the month.The number of loans for remortgaging shot up to 34,262, from 30,429 the previous month. The figures mirrored last month’s survey from the British Bankers’ Association (BBA) which showed far greater annual growth in mortgage lending in November (3.2 per cent) than in October (0.8 per cent).However, the slim rise is “nothing to write home about,” according to Hetal Mehta of Daiwa Capital.And consumer credit fell by £0.1bn in November, the Bank reported. Yet confidence in the economy improved in November, according to an IPSOS Mori survey that showed UK confidence rose by three per cent.“This is also an endorsement of the deficit reduction plan,” said Ashish Prashar of Ipsos MORI. “The public seem to be saying that dealing with this deficit is not an alternative to growth — the two go hand in hand.” Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULL

Between the beginning of January and the end of March last year, the stock dropped around 50% as the oil price plunged to a multi-decade low.This made sense at the time. As one of the world’s largest oil producers, BP needs high oil prices to earn a return on its investments. As the price collapsed, the company’s profits evaporated. 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…But then, as the price of oil started to recover in the second half of 2020, the BP share price continued to decline. It fell a further 35% between the end of March and the beginning of November 2020. During this time, the price of a barrel of oil increased by around 40%. Overall, between the end of 2019 and the beginning of November 2020, the stock lost more than 60%, excluding dividends. At its nadir, the BP share price was changing hands at just under 200p. The last time it hit this level was in the middle of 1994. Since the beginning of November, the stock has started to reflect the rising oil price. It’s up 63% from the lows. Over the past year as a whole, the stock has added just a 0.2%. I think there could be further gains to come. In my opinion, the BP share price has become disconnected from the company’s underlying fundamentals.BP share price fundamentals Today, the shares are worth as much as they were in the second quarter of last year, a time when the world was facing significant economic uncertainty.As demand dwindled, the price of oil stabilised at around $40 a barrel. Since then, the price of oil has galloped higher. It’s currently trading at around $70 as the outlook for the global economy has improved. As the price of oil has recovered, so have BP’s profits. Group operating profit for the first quarter was $4.7bn, up from -$4.4bn last year. This cash infusion and asset sales helped the company reduce overall net debt in the period by $5.6bn to $33.3bn.The more robust balance sheet gave management confidence to restart the group’s share repurchase plan, with $500m of buybacks set to take place in the second quarter. An opportunity All of the above seems to suggest to me that the market hasn’t yet fully priced in the company’s recovery. Operating profit is significantly higher than it was this time last year, but the stock price is only 0.2% higher. Of course, that’s not to say the firm is out of the woods just yet. The pandemic isn’t over, and a third wave in Europe could send the price of oil plunging once again.What’s more, the company is facing increasing pressure to spend more on renewable energy and divest oil and gas assets. This transition could reduce profits and lead to increased borrowings as the group invests in green energy.Still, despite these risks and challenges, I think the market is underappreciating the potential of the BP share price. That’s why I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today.

Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem [Episcopal News Service – Lusaka, Zambia] The outgoing chair of the Anglican Consultative Council says ACC-16, which concluded here April 19, formed a unique vision of the body of Christ and its members felt that God was with them.“We’ve been able to see that our diverseness and that some of our differences in culture, language and ways of being are actually an enrichment of the body of Christ,” retired Malawi Bishop James Tengatenga said during a closing news conference the evening of April 18, the last full day of the April 8-19 meeting at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross here.“It has been a celebration of the life of the church and God has been with us,” he said.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, speaking at the same news conference, said the meeting’s opening Eucharist, which combined thousands of Anglicans with Zambian President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and Kenneth Kaunda, the country’s first president, and other government officials, epitomized what the work of the church is about.Calling the service a “hugely joyful celebration,” Welby said it “summed up most of what the church is about.” The service gave the sense “that we can count on Christ for strength even in difficult times and difficult places; to look for truth as what the presiding bishop of [the Episcopal Church] calls a Jesus people.”That unity in Christ was echoed on April 19, the last day of the meeting, when Bishop of Nairobi Joel Waweru told the council that his experience at the meeting and his election to the Standing Committee the day before was a “big step to the church in Kenya.”Kenyan Archbishop Eliud Wabukala was one of four provincial leaders – the others were Uganda Archbishop Stanley Ntagali, Nigerian Archbishop Nicholas Okoh and Rwandan Archbishop Onesphore Rwaje – who said they would not send their ACC members to the meeting. However, Kenya’s three ACC members came and Wabukala acknowledged that decision, claiming that those three members had “been encouraged to disregard my spiritual counsel and attend this meeting.” Waweru is one of six candidates who will soon stand for election as Kenya’s archbishop.The Episcopal Church’s three Anglican Consultative Council members pose April 18 for the traditional group photo with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, second from left. House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, clergy member, is at the far left. Lay member Rosalie Ballentine, a deputy from the Diocese of the Virgin Islands, is third from left. Diocese of Connecticut Ian Douglas, right, is completing his three-meeting term as the church’s bishop member. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe three Episcopal Church ACC members all said that they had been warmly welcomed to the meeting despite tensions that had been simmering since the 78th General Convention’s decision to change canonical language that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman (Resolution A036) and authorize two new marriage rites with language allowing them to be used by same-sex or opposite-sex couples (Resolution A054).Lay member Rosalie Ballentine, a deputy from the Diocese of the Virgin Islands; House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, clergy member; and Diocese of Connecticut Ian Douglas met privately the evening of April 15 with Welby; his wife, Caroline; David Porter, communion director of reconciliation; and the Rev. Canon Precious Omuku, Welby’s adviser on communion affairs.“It gave me more appreciation of his role and his responsibility, and the burden of responsibility that he carries,” Jennings said during a conversation among the three members at the end of the day April 18. “I think it gave him a deeper sense of who we are as the Episcopal Church.”Douglas agreed, saying the meeting had a “relaxed atmosphere where we could be very honest and open about how some of the actions of the Anglican Communion have impacted us.” The three were able to share the “emotional impact” of the primates’ communique, he said.Ballentine, who was assigned with Welby to the same table group during the meeting, said the archbishop had been “very gracious throughout.”“I think he does have an appreciation for who we are,” she said, adding that she got a sense of “the balancing act a person in his position has to play when you’ve got some loud voices on two ends of the spectrum.”There had been varying levels of pressure, along with a sense of expectation, over how the ACC would respond to the January call of the communion’s primates for three years of “consequences” for the Episcopal Church because of its actions on marriage. “It is both my and the primates’ desire, hope and prayer that the ACC should also share in working through the consequences of our impaired relationships,” Welby, in his formal report on the primates’ actions, told the members on the first day of the ACC meeting.And, while there was much informal discussion and even some behind-the-scenes negotiations, in the end, the council simply noted in a resolution dubbed C34that it had “received” Welby’s report and affirmed the primates’ commitment to walk together. The resolution (dubbed C34) also committed the council “to continue to seek appropriate ways for the provinces of the Anglican Communion to walk together with each other and with the primates and other Instruments of Communion.”The resolution was moved by Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul Yak and seconded by Harriet Baka Nathan, that province’s lay member.Jennings said she and her two colleagues were aware of the concern throughout the Episcopal Church about how the ACC would respond to the primates’ action. The resolution that was passed “was a way for all of us in the communion to move forward,” she said.Douglas said the resolution was focused on the work of the ACC and “not so much on what the primates did or said but, what it means for us to live together in our differences in light of another meeting that happened a few months before.” The members listened to the archbishop’s report, “considered its impact on our lives and then decided accordingly as to our work as the ACC.”“We’ll look back on today and see that the door could have closed or opened,” he said. “It opened.”Another resolution, labeled C35, that would have said the council “welcomes” the primates’ communique, was withdrawn just before debate on it was scheduled to begin.The work of the ACC that Douglas spoke about included reviewing work across the communion since the last ACC meeting in the fall of 2012 and then pointing toward work yet to be done.“There were an amazing number of resolutions about issues that are of common concern and, frankly, are desperate situations in many places,” Jennings said.Jennings was struck by the fact that “gender justice and gender-based violence cuts across every province in the communion and I think that the ACC and its networks are really struggling on how to address this and find concrete ways to solve some of these issues that diminish so many human beings in our provinces.”Ballentine also pointed to the series of resolutions that the ACC passed about instituting safe church policies throughout all the provinces as an example of how gender issues were addressed across the board during the meeting.Ballentine, Douglas and Jennings issued a letter to the church at the end of the meeting.The ACC also lived into the meeting’s theme of “Intentional Discipleship in a World of Difference” by accepting a report titled Intentional Discipleship and Disciple-Making: An Anglican Guide for Christian Life and Formation calling for a “season of intentional discipleship” from now until ACC-18, which could run until approximately 2021. Douglas said during the meeting that such a call would be a major statement about the communion’s priorities.The ACC agreed on the last day of the meeting to amend its constitution to allow the Standing Committee to meet electronically as a way of reducing the communion’s footprint. Outgoing ACC Vice Chair Elizabeth Paver cautioned that face-to-face meetings are invaluable, especially with the large number of new members elected to the Standing Committee during this meeting. However, Margaret Swinson, her successor, said the additional intent of the amendment was to allow more frequent meetings of the committee without incurring the costs of travel and lodging.Among the other resolutions passed were ones on climate change, youth involvement in the communion, solidarity with persecuted people and interfaith and ecumenical relations. Paver said during the closing news conference that the ACC resolutions can be seen as a commissioning of the council members to return to their provinces and promote the mission and ministry to which the council committed.And, Wilfred F. Baker, lay member from the Church of Ireland, said during the final evaluation that there was a “sense of purpose” during the meeting “and we can go home and try to bring that to our churches.” Baker also said his table group affirmed that, despite disagreements, the meeting had exhibited unity amid its diversity.Suzanne Lawson, Anglican Church of Canada lay member, said that when she goes home she strives not only to tell people what the ACC has done but she also talks about the relationships she has made. “I want them to understand their sisters and brothers [around the communion] as people with stories to tell,” she said.“We have discovered that our baptismal identity trumps everything,” said Bishop of Chelmsford Stephen Cottrell, Church of England bishop member.The 17th meeting of the ACC will take place in 2019 in the Diocese of Sao Paulo, a part of the Igreja Episcopal Anglicana do Brasil.Once the April 19 session was over, the ACC members and staff adjourned to the cathedral steps where they videotaped birthday greetings to Queen Elizabeth II, who turns 90 on April 21.The Anglican Consultative Council’s leadership changes at the end of this ACC-16 meeting.

Sauls refused it, then shame on him. When he left the legal profession to go to seminary, he said he felt called to serve in a parish. Instead, he quickly rose up through the ranks, moving from Atlanta to Kentucky to NYC. Perhaps the Catholic Church has it right with its vow of poverty for priests. Either way, one cannot “serve” if the flock does not wished to be served by that individual. The Bible instructs us to live in modesty and humility, neither of which are Stacey Sauls’ strong points. Perhaps he can learn some personal characteristics of kindness and quiet service from his lovely wife. Rector Shreveport, LA Featured Events Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 [Episcopal News Service] An Alabama judge has dismissed a lawsuit against the corporation of the Episcopal Church, called the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS), by former Chief Operating Officer Bishop Stacy Sauls after he was let go from his post.Mobile County 13th Judicial District Judge Ben Brooks said in his Aug. 22 decision that Alabama was not the proper place for Sauls to bring such a suit.The former chief operating officer said that because the Episcopal Church is present in Alabama, he ought to be able to file suit there. The church had argued that the case did not belong in the Alabama courts but, instead, in New York where Sauls was based.The judge agreed with the church, saying all the actions described in the suit took place in New York, where Sauls still lives and where the church maintains its denominational office.“The only potential Alabama witnesses are the lawyers [Sauls] hired,” Brooks noted.Neva Rae Fox, the church’s public affairs officer, said late on Aug. 22 that “we believe this to be a just and proper decision.”“We will continue to keep everyone involved in our prayers,” she said.Brooks’ decision came about two months after he had ordered Sauls and church representatives in June to engage in state-mandated mediation. He took that action after he had heard oral arguments on the church’s request that he dismiss the lawsuit.The judge appointed Michael Upchurch, an Alabama lawyer and mediator, to lead that process. Upchurch was ordered to finish the mediation and report to Brooks by Aug. 18. Upchurch attends St. James Episcopal Church in Fairhope, Alabama, according to his profile on the website of the Mobile law firm Frazer, Greene, Upchurch, and Baker.Sauls’ suit against the DFMS and an unspecified number of unnamed defendants associated with the church claimed that Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s decision to replace him as chief operating officer had damaged his reputation and made it difficult, if not impossible, for him to be employed elsewhere in the church.Sauls filed suit in early February, nearly a year after Curry relieved him of his job. In announcing the lawsuit, the presiding bishop said that, in consultation with legal counsel, he had “tried his best to negotiate a severance with Bishop Sauls.” Curry said he made “a good faith and compassionate offer, but that offer was not accepted.”The presiding bishop also said that “as a steward of church resources” he could not go beyond that offer and explain it in good conscience to the church.The presiding bishop had announced April 4, 2016, that Sam McDonald, deputy chief operating officer and director of mission, and Alex Baumgarten, director of public engagement and mission communications, were terminated after an investigation found they “violated established workplace policies and have failed to live up to the church’s standards of personal conduct in their relationships with employees, which contributed to a workplace environment often inconsistent with the values and expectations of the Episcopal Church.”At that time, Curry said Sauls would not continue as chief operating officer even though he had “operated within the scope of his office,” did not violate workplace policy and was unaware of the policy violations by McDonald and Baumgarten (both of whom reported to Sauls). The three senior managers had been on administrative leave since Dec. 9, 2015, pending an investigation into formal complaints and allegations from multiple members of the presiding bishop’s staff that the three had violated personnel policies.

There is a need for non-family members to gather comfortably and to have a larger scale of storage than residential furniture. So I planned a solarium next to the owner’s room, as large as the budget allowed, using a combination of rough and simple materials.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku-syaSpecifically, the structural frame is a pre-plated square pipe (□ -50 × 50 × 2.3) as an assembly pillar, and shelves can be added freely between the pillars. Since the pillar is a thin plate material that can be screwed, secondary members such as furring strips can be eliminated. The base material of the exterior material is a cedar roofing board that is screwed to the intermediate beam and used in the interior without painting. This building uses wire mesh instead of braces as a earthquake-resistant element. The opening for lighting is made clear by hooking polycarbonate onto this wire mesh without using a sash.Save this picture!SectionThe sunroom has a shutter at the entrance, and when it is opened, the room changes to semi-outdoor. I planned that the solarium don’t have insulation. On the other hand, I planned the room to keep the air volume as small as possible , and to install insulation and air conditioning. I planned the building as large as possible instead of making the room controlled by the equipment smaller.Save this picture!Courtesy of Takayuki Kuzushima and AssociatesI think that the life of a resident is not completed in one house (or one function-defined room), but rather it can become rich by enriching its surroundings.
