3 FTSE 100 stocks I sold in 2020

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address Even the best fund managers get it wrong at times (often very badly). “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 2020 was an active year for me as an investor. Throughout the year, I bought and sold quite a few stocks for my portfolio.Here, I’m going to highlight three FTSE 100 stocks I sold from my portfolio in 2020. I offloaded these underperformers to focus more on my best ideas.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…This FTSE 100 stock has struggledAdvertising giant WPP (LSE: WPP) was one FTSE 100 stock I got rid of in 2020.When I bought WPP shares back in 2017, there were a number of things I liked about the company. Firstly, it had excellent long-term growth and dividend track records. Even during the Global Financial Crisis, revenues rose. Secondly, it had an inspirational leader, Martin Sorrell, at the helm.Since then, a few things have changed. Firstly, the company has really struggled due to structural changes in the advertising market (which I underestimated). I think it may continue to struggle for a while. Secondly, Sorell has left the firm. Third, WPP slashed its dividend payout this year.In light of these changes, I asked myself: ‘would I buy this stock today?’ The answer was no. So, I sold it.Dividend cutAnother FTSE 100 company I offloaded was tobacco giant Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB).I bought this stock back in 2017 mainly for the dividend. The yield was attractive and the dividend growth track record was impressive. I also liked the fact that portfolio manager Neil Woodford – who still had a good reputation at the time – was backing the stock heavily.Since then, a lot has changed. Firstly, Imperial’s dividend growth track record is gone. This year, it slashed its payout.Secondly, sustainability has become far more of a focus since 2017. These days, nearly all institutional investors are turning to their attention to sustainable investment strategies and avoiding sectors such as tobacco. This means that, going forward, FTSE 100 tobacco stocks may not generate the same kind of interest from institutional investors as they did in the past. This could keep Imperial Brands’ share price depressed.I took a sizeable loss here but learned (or was reminded of) some good lessons: I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

No competitive advantageFinally, I also dumped my shares in FTSE 100 insurance company Aviva (LSE: AV).This was a share I held for about seven years, thinking it offered value. It never really performed for me though. For a while, the dividend yield was attractive. But overall, returns were disappointing. After it cut its dividend this year, I made the decision to sell it.I think one of the main problems with Aviva is its lack of edge. It doesn’t have a competitive advantage. There’s nothing to stop a customer going to a competitor.I’ll point out that new CEO Amanda Blanc is looking to transform the company. She’s confident that she can turn it into a “winner”. However, we’ve seen this kind of thing before with Aviva and the company has failed to deliver.Overall, I decided there were better stocks to own for the long term.

Bledisloe Cup: Matt Toomua ahead of Quade Cooper for Wallabies

first_imgduring a Super Rugby Final match between the Chiefs and the Brumbies at Waikato Stadium on August 3, 2013 in Hamilton, New Zealand. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The new headliner: Matt Toomua will be the headline act for the Wallabies against New Zealand this weekendBy Alan DymockTHE GLIB and the dry amongst us would perhaps chuckle to themselves as Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie opted not to look after his faithful servant Quade Cooper to promote his ‘man for all seasons’ Matt Toomua. However, in his first Wallaby squad selection, McKenzie has thrown a lot of unknown elements at the All Blacks.Big calls from the big man: Ewen McKenzieThe Bledisloe Cup is a ferocious first game for the new coach, and while McKenzie has always relied on Cooper to bail out the Queensland Reds when they needed a spark, he has shown that his tenure will not be one for favouring old pals with his first selection. Ok, so this is not the exact same story as the play, ‘A man for all seasons’ – a tale of Sir Thomas More being pilloried for not endorsing the choices of his master, King Henry VIII – but there are some similar themes. The larger gentleman at the helm of Australia will show no sentiment in his quest to get what he wants and he is dealing with complex characters, one of which will never change and the other who is eager to climb to the top of his field, in whichever way his leader wants it done.This may be getting too grand for a simple Wallaby selection, so in order to simplify things it must be pointed out that in this new era, Australia have to compete.The old way was not getting this done and so McKenzie has the opportunity to throw as much new ideas at the Bledisloe Cup as he can. The scrum rules have changed so he has altered the same old Wallaby scrum. He has two whippersnappers at 10 and 12 and he has a zesty full-back in from the start.With New Zealand picking a team that most punters could have, McKenzie needs an element of surprise. Not the kind of surprise that Robbie Deans would have brought in; the kind of surprise that would have had you squinting and tilting your head to the side as you try and understand it. No, McKenzie is adamant that he is picking on form and that the players in more comfy positions can cut loose the right way. This leads to debut call-ups for Brumbies Toomua, Scott Fardy, Scott Sio, Nic White and Tevita Kuridrani.Bring on the Brumbies: Scott Fardy is one of many debutantsIn his first act, McKenzie will have to generate some scintillating attacks with his actors Jesse Mogg, Izzy Folau, James O’Connor and new rudder-man Matt Toomua. If this does not work he always has Quade Cooper for the final scenes and all the while Stephen Moore, James Horwill and Michael Hooper will plug away. McKenzie declared that Toomua at 10 was a choice because he was “a man for all occasions.”He went on: “We want to play with the ball and use it, but we’ve got to be strategic and smart too. I’ve talked about skill and smarts, so we’ve got to ensure both those things are in place.”This is not a dig at Cooper. That would be petty and besides, he has given Cooper a lifeline back into international rugby. The Reds fly-half will be grateful and when his cameo comes he will approach his role with relish.The thing is that McKenzie wants to beat the All Blacks and he has a lot of choreography to plan in order to do so. After all, it is not as easy as some would have hoped it would be for the former Wallaby prop, this running of a whole country thing. Wallabies squad v New Zealand: Jesse Mogg; Israel Folau, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Christian Leali’ifano, James O’Connor; Matt Toomua Will Genia; Ben Mowen, Michael Hooper, Hugh McMeniman, James Horwill (C), Rob Simmons, Ben Alexander, Stephen Moore, James Slipper.Subs: Saia Faingaa, Scott Sio, Sekope Kepu, Scott Fardy, Liam Gill, Nic White, Quade Cooper, Tevita Kuridrani.last_img read more

Episcopalians rally around ‘Way of Love’ framework for living into…

first_img Rector Hopkinsville, KY Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Presiding Bishop Michael Curry introduces The Way of Love during his sermon July 5 at the opening Eucharist of the 79th General Convention in Austin, Texas, in this image taken from an Episcopal Church video of the sermon.[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry spent much of his first three years as head of the Episcopal Church talking about Episcopalians being part of the Jesus movement. He has called them to follow Jesus into loving, liberating and life-giving communion with God, with God’s creation and with each other.“Pretty early on, people started saying, ‘How do we do that?’” said the Rev. Stephanie Spellers, the presiding bishop’s canon for evangelism, reconciliation and creation care. “So, the presiding bishop really took that to heart.”Curry provided an answer last month by launching a “rule of life” framework dubbed “The Way of Love,” featuring seven practices for Jesus-centered living. The churchwide response to the initiative so far has been overwhelmingly positive, Spellers said, and efforts to promote The Way of Love have just begun.“You want to be people of the Jesus movement? You want to follow Jesus and to live his way? Well, his way is the way of love,” Spellers said. “And if we as a whole church commit to living a set of spiritual practices with conviction and in community, we will more and more live as Jesus’ people in this world.”Worshippers were given Way of Love wallet cards at the July 5 opening Eucharist of the 79th General Convention in Austin, Texas, as seen in this photo taken from an Episcopal Church video of the service.Curry first spoke of The Way of Love in his sermon July 5 for the opening Eucharist of the 79th General Convention in Austin, Texas. Since then, Spellers and her staff have produced more than 100,000 wallet cards for the initiative and posted additional print-ready materials to The Way of Love website. Those materials have begun showing up in church bulletins across the church, and Episcopal partners, including Church Publishing, Forward Movement and Forma, are developing and releasing their own Way of Love resources for congregations. Some bishops, meanwhile, have issued personalized messages to their dioceses inviting them to follow The Way of Love practices.Those practices, hardly revolutionary, should be familiar to most Christians.TURN: Pause, listen and choose to follow Jesus.LEARN: Reflect on Scripture each day, especially on Jesus’ life and teachings.PRAY: Dwell intentionally with God each day.WORSHIP: Gather in community weekly to thank, praise and dwell with God.BLESS: Share faith and unselfishly give and serve.GO: Cross boundaries, listen deeply and live like Jesus.REST: Receive the gift of God’s grace, peace and restoration.

As I read it, the Way of Love are the 7 overarching principles, not the concrete applications of the same. But it supplies the loving intention we need to act in a Christlike manner.

Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Robbie Johnson says: Curry, his staff and a group of outside advisers known as his “kitchen cabinet” began working on the framework in December. “We realized that we already have what we need in the tradition of the church going back centuries,” Curry said in his July 5 sermon, citing monastic traditions that have long relied on rules of life.The presiding bishop also drew a comparison to the set of practices followed by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders of the civil rights movement to focus their efforts. The Jesus movement, then, is built on the practices of The Way of Love, and Curry’s initiative aims to refocus Episcopalians on what it means to be a Christian in today’s world.“I know and I believe that we in this church can help Christianity to reclaim its soul and re-center its life in the way of love, the way of the cross, which is the way of Jesus,” he said.Spellers called this “an invitation to come home again.”“If you look at what it takes to really grow spiritually vital Christian community, it’s not rocket science, but it does take commitment,” Spellers said. She thinks The Way of Love has been an early success because church members are hungry for spiritual formation and eager as Jesus’ followers to work for justice.Church leaders also emphasize this isn’t a solitary journey. The shared commitment to The Way of Love echoes Episcopalians’ commitment to their baptismal covenant, a way of saying “yes” to God.“That’s powerful, and it’s also what movements do,” Spellers said.Spellers’ team plans to begin a major push on social media soon in support of The Way of Love, while encouraging local congregations to share their experiences, using the hashtag #WayOfLove. The team also is developing Way of Love liturgical materials that will be ready in time for Advent in December.Wallet cards and brochures explaining The Way of Love can be downloaded from the website and printed for distribution locally. Spanish-language resources are being prepared. Congregations also are encouraged to experiment in how they incorporate The Way of Love into their parish life, part of an “open-source” approach to developing the initiative.

Thank you Most Reverend Primate Bishop for revealing our destiny to surrender to God to make us one Love from Him. Ron Davin says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Bath, NC Episcopalians rally around ‘Way of Love’ framework for living into Jesus Movement Curate Diocese of Nebraska Ron Davin says: Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Tags St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Conway, Arkansas, has paired each of the seven practices with a different liturgical season over the coming year, and The Way of Love will help shape all ministries, from the youth group to the senior citizen book club. Jerusalem Greer, the minister of formation and connection at St. Peter’s, is active in Forma and was part of the group Curry assembled to develop The Way of Love.“One of the things that makes this really necessary right now is, as a culture, we feel a little free-floating, a little lost,” Greer said. “And I think this helps us create a trellis, to try to kind of cling to and grow up.”And as Curry inspires more and more people with his talk of being part of the Jesus movement, “people want to know how do you do that,” Greer said. “I think it’s that age-old question, how then shall we live? … I want to figure out how to be light and hope in a very dark world.”One of the questions The Way of Love asks is “Who will you walk with?” Forming discipleship groups will be an important step, to support each other and share experiences of spiritual growth, Spellers said. Parishioners may choose to form small Bible study groups, and several Episcopal seminaries have committed to developing on-campus gatherings centered on The Way of Love, including Virginia Theological Seminary, General Theological Seminary and the seminary at Sewanee: The University of the South.“That gives us the chance to shape the leadership of the church and to deepen the spiritual roots for the next generation of Episcopal leaders,” Spellers said.The initiative also is drawing attention from other corners of the Anglican Communion. A priest in Canada wrote recently to Spellers saying he’d like to print Way of Love posters for his church. A similar inquiry came from someone in the Anglican Church of Mexico.Curry’s team conceived of The Way of Love as part of the Anglican Communion’s Season of Intentional Discipleship, an initiative following the theme of “living a Jesus-shaped life.” That language and vision pair with how Curry describes the Episcopal branch of the Jesus movement.“I want to ask not only you, but every Episcopalian, to make a commitment to throw yourself into the hands of Jesus, and then live life out of that,” Curry said in his sermon at General Convention. “These tools may help you.”Others in the Episcopal Church are helping to spread the word about The Way of Love.“Any rule of life takes practice, and really that’s the point, practice. In a sense we never stop practicing,” Diocese of Olympia Bishop Greg Rickel said in a video message encouraging Episcopalians there to take up The Way of Love. “It’s a lifelong practice, one most of us never get to be perfect, but in this, the practice is the gift.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The site is very small measuring 7.5 metres wide by 10.5 metres deep, and is flanked by 3 metre high walls to the East and the North, and a 2 metre high wall to the West. The new house was not allowed to rise higher than the eaves of the house next door to the North. We were only allowed 1 metre squared of obscured window on the Southern elevation, no windows above the top of the wall on the Western elevation and 1 metre squared of window on the Northern elevation. We had to set the building back from the road, decreasing the usable space on the site even further. Save this picture!© Mel YatesExternally above the brick walls, the house is clad in a larch rain-screen, there is a grass and wildflower roof, and several roof-lights to mitigate the restriction on windows on three of the main elevations. The windows are set behind the rainscreen, which obscures their frames. The windows open inwards for ease of cleaning. Save this picture!© Mel YatesOn the ground floor dug down 600mm, which gave us a floor to ceiling height of 2800mm. This makes a small space feel much more spacious and allows the natural light deeper into the floor plan. The change in level allows us to create underfloor storage at the entrance, any storage being at a premium in such a small house. Save this picture!Courtesy of Ashworth Parkes ArchitectsThe first floor is cantilevered from large fair-faced concrete piers which also house the larder and the cloaks, as we were unable to bear any load on the existing brick walls, which were in a precarious state. There is a white resin floor as well as a white enameled staircase, again to raise the light levels inside. Save this picture!Courtesy of Ashworth Parkes ArchitectsThe interior arranged around a double height space flanked on the first floor by a small study area. The related spaces are intricately connected, and although the spaces are small, there are various perceptions of depth. This is heightened by the use of mirrors and translucent meshes. Upstairs the three bedrooms, shower room and bathroom, each have a different character, provided by the varying fenestration. A key idea in the house was trying to create different spaces and little moments of interest that would again help to make the house feel larger than in fact it really is. Save this picture!Courtesy of Ashworth Parkes ArchitectsWorking on a very tight budget, our aim was to design a house that from first principle would use as little energy as possible. We were not able to afford some of the more headline grabbing bits of kit, photovoltaics, heat exchangers etc., so all our environmental moves were intrinsic elements within the fabric and planning of the house. Save this picture!Courtesy of Ashworth Parkes ArchitectsFirstly, the house is very well insulated. On the first floor, which is timber framed, there is 200mm of sheep’s wool insulation within the walls and the roof. On the roof, we allowed for the additional loading of 200mm of soil to create a semi-intensive green roof. Both the roof and the sheep’s wool are hydrophilic and this means that they provide excellent insulation properties in both hot and cold conditions. The installation of this type of roof means that rate of rainwater run off from the roof is reduced dramatically. Save this picture!Courtesy of Ashworth Parkes ArchitectsWithin the house, on the ground floor, is a lot of exposed thermal mass in the form of the large elements of fair-faced concrete, and the resin floor, that we use to moderate the building’s temperature. Save this picture!Courtesy of Ashworth Parkes ArchitectsThe ground floor has an underfloor heating system, whilst the only heating of any form upstairs are the heated towel rails in the shower and bathrooms. The natural buoyancy of the hot air means that it rises up the double height space, into the first floor of the house and the levels of insulation means that the first floor of the house warms up very nicely without the need for any heating of its own. Save this picture!© Mel YatesBeing stuck behind high walls and the number of windows being severely limited meant that we had to use roof-lights to maximize the daylight within the house. These coupled with the light bouncing up off the white resin floor, which is in effect a large light shelf, mean that the interior of the house is very bright. We have used a mirror next to the large roof-light in the double height space and this bounces light deeper into the floor plan. The roof-lights are, coupled with the double height space, very useful in cooling the building in Summer. On hot days we open them up and open the French windows downstairs a small amount, which creates a stack effect through the house and drains the hot air out of the roof and pulls in pleasant cool air at a low level. The lack of windows on the Southern and Western elevations also limit any potential solar heat gain.Project gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture Symposium at CUNYArticlesFalkonergården / JAJA ArchitectsArticles Share Architects: Ashworth Parkes Architects Area Area of this architecture project Hairy House / Ashworth Parkes ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHairy House / Ashworth Parkes Architects Year:  CopyAbout this officeAshworth Parkes ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCambridgeHousesUnited KingdomPublished on April 10, 2011Cite: “Hairy House / Ashworth Parkes Architects” 10 Apr 2011.

The master bedroom located in the attic enjoys the comfort of deep overhangs, plenty of natural light and long distant views, not typical of such a dense urban site. Save this picture!© Sanjay KewlaniSave this picture!Second Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessJ.Y.

Based on a minimalist architectural style that combines comfort with ecological sustainability, Amaya is a luxury project designed that has the objective to provide an experience of constant connection to the natural environment of the Maya Riviera. This project is inspired by the idea of houses in a village, in which every unit is able to enjoy personal independence due to the sensation of permeability and continuous connection with the outdoors and the exuberant tropical vegetation of Tulum.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando AldaThe concept and distribution are based on ten superimposed elements that always respond to two situations within the project, an interior view (common areas) and an exterior view (the environment), allowing for visual fluidity between the interior and exterior spaces, taking into account the privacy of the inhabitants.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaEach unit possesses a specific positioning in relation to the whole, which generates in each one of them a different form and offers, including single units as well as duplex and triplex. The project presents a scheme of 10 units in four levels that range from 72 m2 to 292 m2. This includes 5 units in one level, three duplexes, and two triplexes, and depending on each unit either the patio or terraces with pools or private jacuzzis will be available for use and enjoyment. Save this picture!© Fernando AldaThe access lobby is a space that has quadruple height and a water mirror, as well as several indirect light entrances in the top deck. This is the center of the project, and it was born with the idea of simulating a lagoon or a freshwater well, which are typical in the region. The rooftop serves as a complement to the private amenities. In it, there is a rooftop pool, a tanning deck, and a barbecue area. With the intention to blend with its surroundings, the complex uses natural materials that are typical of the local architecture, such as wood, rock, and cement. Save this picture!© Fernando AldaProject gallerySee allShow lessPersian Palaces Meet Contemporary Landmarks in Forouzanfar’s Retrofuturism SeriesArticlesNew Architecture and Design Books to Read this SummerArticlesProject locationAddress:Aldea Zama, Tulum, Q.R., MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.
