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. 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. Tom Rodgers | Sunday, 22nd November, 2020 UK interest rates are going nowhere fast. That makes an investment in cheap FTSE 100 shares much more appealing than holding onto cash savings. It’s certainly harder than at any other time in history for people to enrich themselves through careful saving.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…UK interest rates are at record lows in 2020. 0.1% is a miserly return. It’s as close to zero as it makes no difference. And the rate of UK inflation is now at 0.9%, up from 0.7% in September. So that means any cash stuck in my bank account is actually losing value over time!This is a shoddy state of affairs for UK savers. And it means that cheap FTSE 100 shares could be a much more attractive way to make money in 2020 and 2021 Why cheap FTSE 100 shares?The reason I tend to look for value in cheap FTSE 100 shares is because of liquidity. What I mean by that is: if I want to sell my shares, there is more chance there will be a buyer on the other end. The smaller and less popular the company, the less likely it is there will be a buyer when I come to sell. Of course, I’d prefer to beat UK interest rates and hold onto my shares forever. With Hargreaves Lansdown, I have to pay a £11.95 fee every time I buy or sell shares. These charges can quickly stack up. But the main reason that I seek out undervalued and cheap FTSE 100 shares is so I can reinvest dividend income and take advantage of compound growth.Which shares I buyBecause UK interest rates are so miserly, I don’t have to make a massive return on my investment. In fact, if I make 1% a year I’ll be doing better than holding cash! But my approach is to find cheap FTSE 100 shares. In other words, these are companies trading at low price-to-earnings ratios that have solid dividends. This is the value investing style favoured by some of the world’s most successful investors, like Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Sir John Templeton, and Philip Fisher.The UK interest rate was near an historic low of 0.5% at the turn of 2020. Then the Bank of England slashed it to an all-time floor of 0.1% in March. In Japan and the eurozone, interest rates are even worse than in the UK — at negative numbers! This creates particularly miserable income yields on bonds (government debt). So it’s no surprise that cheap FTSE 100 shares are so popular these days. Investors have few other places to turn to make a return on their capital. The pick of the bunchThe pandemic, economic crash, and lockdowns have made the list of cheap FTSE 100 shares much longer than ever. According to Hargeaves Lansdown, the top FTSE 100 shares traded this week include Lloyds Bank, Rolls Royce, and British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines. Each could be considered cheap FTSE 100 shares in their own right. In fact the last of these, IAG, is trading at just over 1 times earnings! With more optimism in the air now that Covid-19 vaccines are coming, the travel stock could be a decent play for 2021, in my opinion. TomRodgers has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Former France scrum-half Fabien Galthié is apparently being lined up to come into the back-room team for the World Cup, as are a couple of others, but will that be enough, particularly if Brunel is still the head man?France have tended to perform well at World Cups but there is a growing possibility that the 2023 hosts will not make it out of their pool for the first time in 2019.Not such a helping hand for Italy…We’ve often seen post protectors help players score tries, touching down alongside the base as they know that counts as the line, but – as mentioned above – the opposite was true for Italy on Saturday.Tommaso Allan puts in a grubber behind the French defence, Marco Zanon chases hard, the ball bounces off the post and over his shoulder rather than into his arms. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It’s an interesting take from Jones given there are so many new faces in his squad compared to 2015, but if it is an issue that needs to be fixed, it needs to be fixed fast because pressure will only increase come the World Cup – and they don’t have a straightforward group with Argentina and France also in Pool C.Scotland need to deliver 80-minute performancesGregor Townsend endured an injury list longer than the proposed Brexit withdrawal agreement, so to come within a minute of ending the 23-year wait for a Calcutta Cup win at Twickenham was impressive.Bright spark: Finn Russell dives over for a try at Twickenham (Getty Images)It was a quite spectacular Test match between England and Scotland, one that would have drawn in even non-rugby fans such was its unpredictable nature. Yet what could have happened if the Scots had played from the first minute rather than the 40th?It was a similar story against Wales the week before, whereas against Ireland, the Scots did well in the first half and dropped off in the second.If Townsend’s team can start putting together 80-minute performances, opponents will find it hard to live with the pace and freneticism of their game – and they could be the surprise package at Japan 2019.Will France change their coach?But for a post deflection and a couple of knock-ons, Italy would have beaten France in Rome. Instead, the French squeaked a win.Fourth place in the table probably flatters this current France squad and the number of basic errors would embarrass a vets’ XV let alone an international side.It may sound ageist, but does 65-year-old Jacques Brunel have the ability to produce a game plan that can succeed in the modern game? It certainly doesn’t look like it at the moment. Dejected: Bundee Aki reacts during Ireland’s defeat by Wales in Cardiff (Getty Images) Did Ireland peak too early for the 2019 World Cup?It’s only four months since Ireland beat New Zealand in Dublin, yet so much has changed in that time.Back in November, a 16-9 victory over the All Blacks put Ireland firmly in the frame for the World Cup. Steve Hansen described the men in green as the best team in the world, Joe Schmidt was named World Rugby Coach of the Year and Johnny Sexton took the player gong.Talk didn’t just centre on Ireland going beyond the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time but of them being one of the favourites to lift the Webb Ellis Cup.Now they almost look a shadow of their former selves. Beaten by England in round one and Wales in round five, they finished third in the Six Nations table that they had sat atop of 12 months previously.Busy man: Ireland coach Joe Schmidt has work to do before the World Cup (Getty Images)One Irish journalist in Cardiff described Ireland’s performance in the 25-7 defeat by Wales as the worst of the Schmidt era.Yes, they have had a number of injuries to deal with throughout the campaign, but the way their clinical, controlled game has fractured will be a major worry for the back-room team. The creative, innovative set plays Schmidt is known for were also notable by their absence.As well as hitting upon the best tactical game plan for the World Cup, the coaches also need to rebuild confidence. Otherwise that wait for a semi-final will go on for Ireland. After all, they are likely to face either New Zealand or South Africa in the last eight.Wales fly-half Gareth Anscombe wins over criticsGareth Anscombe could hardly be described as ‘Mr Popular’ since arriving in Wales in 2014.Listen to the teams being read out before a Test at the Principality Stadium and the cheers that follow his name are undoubtedly more muted than for others, particularly his fly-half rival Dan Biggar.In the England match, when Biggar replaced Anscombe, the applause for the new man reverberated around the stadium.He can kick it: Gareth Anscombe chips ahead to set up Hadleigh Parkes’s try (Getty Images)Yet in the Grand Slam decider he will surely have won over at least some of his critics. For a start there was the clever chip off the outside of his boot that delivered the ball into the grateful arms of Hadleigh Parkes for a try after just 70 seconds.Then there was his flawless contribution from the tee, slotting 20 points as Wales wrapped up the Grand Slam in style.The debate over who should play fly-half at the World Cup will go on – it will probably still be happening once the final whistle has blown at RWC 2019! – but Anscombe has shown his talents at Test level at ten and 15 in this Six Nations.England show mental frailty yet againEngland were 31-0 up against Scotland at Twickenham before needing to convert a try with the final play to scrape a 38-38 draw.Related: England and Scotland draw in closerIt’s not the first time England have blown a big lead and Eddie Jones believes the team’s mental frailties come from their early exit at the last World Cup.Mental block? Owen Farrell and his England team-mates look downbeat during the draw with Scotland (Getty Images)“Whenever you have a difficult tournament or difficult games, there’s always a lingering thought process there. Sometimes it takes you longer than you’d like to fix, but it is fixable,” said Jones.“It comes in when you get under pressure, a lot of pressure, and you can’t work out a way to get back to what you want to do.” After a Super Saturday that lived up to the billing, we reflect on the final goings-on in the 2019 championship Oh how things could have been different if that ball had fallen into his hands. Instead, it’s another wooden spoon for Italy.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We look forward to engaging more fully with partners, including those in local and regional contexts, and to weaving a national narrative that serves to revitalize the ecumenical movement in the US.”Peg Birk, the NCC’s transitional general secretary, who served on the task force, also expressed confidence for the future.“The implementation of the Task Force’s proposal and strategy will be challenging yet rejuvenating work,” Birk said. “The governing board’s action signaled that the Council is moving beyond the work of transition and into the work of transformation. I look forward to providing creative, focused, and courageous leadership to this collaborative process.”The new organization will based on the interaction of three areas: theological study and dialogue, inter-religious relations and dialogue, and joint advocacy and action for justice and peace.Ministries of education, formation, and leadership development will serve to integrate these areas and bolster the special role of the NCC within the ecumenical landscape for communicating faith through education and scripture.“Today the ecumenical vision is alive and well at the local, regional, and national levels, in no small part because of the historic vision and witness of NCC,” the Task Force said its report.The NCC’s 37 member communions — from a wide spectrum of Protestant, Anglican, Orthodox, Evangelical, historic African American and Living Peace churches — include 40 million persons in more than 100,000 local congregations.

New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS [Anglican Communion News Service] Young people who want to spend a year living at Lambeth Palace, the London home of the Archbishop of Canterbury, as part of a “radical Jesus-centered community of prayer, study and serving local communities” have just under one week to submit their applications.The Community of Saint Anselm was established by Archbishop Justin Welby as part of his commitment to a renewal of the monastic movement. The community is an international group of young Christians, aged between 20 to 35, and includes both residential and non-residential members.Application for membership is open to “any follower of Jesus, aged 20-35 and in good standing with their own church,” the Community of St Anselm says on its website. “We are hoping for a wonderfully broad range of members from across many different denominations and church traditions, and many different cultures.“As we live and pray and serve together, we learn to hold our differences before God and love one another – to pursue reconciliation and understanding, in the context of our love for God and for the world around us.”Members can be lay or ordained and can include those already living in orders. “The only prerequisite is a willingness to be transformed and to learn,” the community says. Applications are also welcome from married couples – but, if married, “both spouses should apply and participate fully in the community.”Members must also have “a level of English that allows the person to benefit from the teaching (lectures and reading), share and discuss matters of faith with others and participate in the social life of the community” and be available between Sept. 1, 2016 and July 1, 2017.“I am only half way through this Year in God’s Time, and it has already been life transforming,” current residential member Louise Cox said. “Though intensely difficult at times, there is no place I’d rather be, sharing with the incredible young men and women I am honored to call my brothers and sisters.“Life in the community is deeply seated in prayer. We have three services a day, and times of silent prayer to pursue our personal walk with Christ, seeking to grow in faith and knowledge, discerning God’s will for our lives. This cent re of prayer is surrounded by regular study, group dialogue on social and theological issues. Outside of this rhythm we engage with the sick, the homeless, the young and the old through volunteering with London charities. We live in service to others, engaging with the suffering world around us.“Our regular rhythm of prayer is punctuated by concentrated prayer for special events such as the recent Primates’ Meeting in Canterbury. Each day of the meeting we had the honor of gathering together in a constant vigil of prayer to support a process that meant so much to so many people,” she said.“This experience was incredibly moving, and taught me a great deal of what it means to live in relationship with the worldwide Church and with God. We all have our part to play in nurturing our church, for some it is to meet, to talk and discuss, for me it was to stop and pray with a focused and intentional compassion over those striving to create a better, united future.”Young people looking to spend a Year in God’s Time from September 2016 must apply by F. 29 for the residential track. Non-residential applicants must apply by mid-April. Full details about the criteria and the selection and application process can be found on the Community of St Anselm website.

In the center of the largest Jade Market in Guangzhou, a few old houses sit at the end of the small path leading to the Hualin Temple. Characteristic of the old and aged, these houses have narrow, small and dark rooms.

Different from the traditional Jade store, ZHY HOUSE focuses on programmatic diversity and spatial comfort. Combining clothing, ceramics and tea, the design uses simple harmonies of materiality and tone to create a lifestyle store.Save this picture!First floor. Image Courtesy of Studio YUDAThe new exterior wall flattens the original staggering profile of the façade and creates a strong identity for the building. This creates an abstract and clean exterior with dynamic spaces between the new and the old. Square openings of varying sizes are arranged in a shifting composition, revealing the interior spaces at various depths. The addition not only expresses the programmatic diversity between floors but also adds display windows to the street. The simple composition of white wall and square openings creates a holistic facade in relationship to the plaza.Save this picture!Before renovation. Image Courtesy of Studio YUDAThe ground floor functions as jade display and retail. The addition of the façade creates a narrow double height space that alleviates the discomfort created by the limited floor height. A gently curved counter draws people further into the space. The golden drop light follows the curvature of the counter, reinforcing the movement. In the front, the counter is pushed against the wall creating a small room for display. The counter then curves to divide the space and serve as a table for four. At the end of the room is a small door that leads to the tea table in the backyard. The stair is made of cast-on-site pink terrazzo, making the space fun and inviting.Save this picture!PlanThe second floor doubles as a clothing shop and a tea room.

An additional one meter deep storefront is added at the end of the room facing the plaza. There is a small window on each flight of the stair looking to the backyard.A bathroom and a small patio are located on the fourth floor.

NCVO finds room for improvement in public sector volunteering programmes 315 total views, 6 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Tagged with: public sector Volunteering Public sector volunteers report strong levels of satisfaction in their roles but on the whole are less satisfied than those in the charity sector, with their experience too much like paid work for one in four, and many feeling there is too much bureaucracy involved, NCVO has found. New research released today by NCVO reveals that public sector volunteers are also less likely to feel a sense of belonging to the organisation they’re volunteering with, and more likely than charity volunteers to plan to quit.The report, Time Well Spent: Volunteering in the Public Sector, finds that 94% of those volunteering in the public sector say they were satisfied with their experience. However, only 47% said they were ‘very satisfied’, compared to 58% among charities and community group volunteers, while only 76% said they would continue volunteering in the future compared to 83% of charity volunteers.Public sector volunteers were almost twice as likely as charity volunteers to say they expected the process of getting involved to be quicker (20% vs. 11%), and were around 50% more likely than charity volunteers to report that there is ‘too much bureaucracy’ (32% vs 21% of volunteers).The research also included focus groups, and among these participants, NCVO found that volunteers at larger organisations in particular expressed the frustrations of bureaucracy and hierarchy and said they sometimes felt ‘at the bottom of the pile’.Over one in five, 22%, felt the organisation had unreasonable expectations of their time, compared to 14% of charity volunteers. In focus groups, public sector volunteers reported feeling growing pressure and a sense of expectation to give more time as the services they volunteered for came under financial pressure, and that this diminished their enjoyment of their roles. A sense of volunteering becoming ‘too much like paid work’ was driven by a combination of a sense of obligation and a feeling of lack of appreciation or being valued.Focus group participants also revealed that those giving their time at organisations where staff and volunteers had positive and supportive relationships were more satisfied, but with volunteers also conscious that morale levels among staff impacted how their volunteering experience felt.Karl Wilding, NCVO Chief Executive commented:“Getting public sector volunteering right holds the potential to make a really positive difference to services by harnessing people’s desire to help out in their communities.“The differences we found in the survey are not always dramatic but along with what we heard in focus groups they do hint at areas for improvement in public sector volunteering programmes, particularly in terms of making roles flexible and minimising bureaucracy. I firmly believe that public services are able to do this, even in the context of financial pressure, and I sense a great willingness to do so from the public sector leaders I speak to.”This latest report is based on a survey of 10,000 adults in the UK, conducted with YouGov, which explored who volunteers, where, why, and how they feel about their volunteering. The first results were published last year. For this report, NCVO undertook detailed further analysis of survey respondents volunteering in the public sector, alongside a range of focus groups with volunteers in public services in areas across England.
