In 2005, his family saved a significant amount of tax relating to the payment of a £1.14bn dividend through a series of complex arrangements.Sir Philip refused to talk to City A.M. yesterday after our political editor last week asked him questions about his family’s tax situation.Sir Philip hit back elsewhere against criticism of his appointment, shrugging off questions about his tax arrangements and defending his ability to make savings for the public purse.“My family has been a major investor, employer and taxpayer in the UK creating jobs, not destroying them, for many years,” he wrote in the Mail on Sunday. “I knew my appointment would cause a fuss but the only real question is whether or not I am qualified to do the job.”Sir Philip added that he just wants to get on with the task in hand, claiming that he and his executive team will look for ways to do things ‘better, faster and cheaper’.“Our job is not about who spends what money where,” he said. “If the government wants to spend x amount on the police force or on health, that’s politics. But by the same token, I don’t see spending £20, £50, or £200m, as politics: it’s business. Whatever the spends will be for – IT, general procurement, real estate – they will not be any different from what we do in our business on a daily basis.”Cable’s reservations about the appointment came as Liberal Democrat deputy leader Simon Hughes yesterday signalled there would be no pact between the party and the Tories at the next election.“We want to be in government ideally on our own because evidently if we have a majority we can implement more of our policies and not only a proportion,” Hughes told the BBC. whatsapp Share Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

whatsapp Social media website MySpace is poised to lay off more than half of its 1,000-strong workforce today as part of an overhaul intended to mend its grim financial position. The site, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, is expected to tell those affected today. MySpace has lost out to newer online competitors since News Corp took over in 2005 for $580m (£372.7m), and is now thought to be worth a fraction of its sale price. News Corp executives have previously said they will consider alternatives, such as selling or dismantling MySpace, if it cannot reverse its fortunes. The site unveiled a new design and focus on new music in October last year, but no sign of a pick-up in traffic has emerged, contrasting sharply with Facebook’s recent $500m investment from Goldman Sachs.

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. Jay Yao | Wednesday, 10th March, 2021 | More on: BP RDSB Recently, an Iranian-aligned group from Yemen called Houthis attacked Saudi Arabia using missiles and drones, including one targeted at a facility important for oil exports. Although most of the missiles and drones were intercepted, Brent prices nevertheless briefly rose over $70 per barrel for the first time since early 2020.Saudi Arabia is arguably the most influential nation in the oil market. The country exports a lot of oil and also has considerable spare capacity, which is potential production that it can turn on quickly to meet market demand. In the past, Saudi Arabia has used its spare capacity capability to influence overall oil supply and as a result, its actions and internal developments can affect oil prices considerably.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…Given how influential Saudi Arabia is in the oil market, here’s what I think the recent attack on Saudi Arabia means for the BP (LSE: BP) share price and the Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) share price.What it means for the BP and RDSB share pricesAlthough oil prices rose initially, I don’t think the attack matters that much to the BP share price or the RDSB share price, because I don’t think the attack has any medium term effect on oil prices.First, the attack failed to actually disrupt oil exports so Saudi Arabia still has the same capacity as before. As a result, oil supply didn’t change as a result of the attack.Second, oil inventories are pretty high in many places around the world due to the pandemic. With higher oil inventories, any potential disruption in Saudi Arabia production or exports wouldn’t be as big of a problem as it would have been before. The higher inventories give more time for other countries to ramp up their production or exports if needed.Speaking of production, many countries around the world are holding back oil production due to a OPEC+ agreement. If Saudi Arabia’s oil production is actually disrupted, I reckon other countries could step up their production to compensate.Lastly, the US has committed to defending Saudi Arabia and, with US military technology, I reckon any additional attacks would be considerably harder.What I’d doAlthough the attack is in the news, I reckon what matters a lot more to the BP share price and the RDSB share price is the battle between Covid-19 vaccines and variants.If the variants prolong and worsen the pandemic, demand for oil might not be as strong as expected and oil prices could decline. If oil prices decline substantially, I reckon the BP share price and RDSB share price could both fall too. BP and Royal Dutch Shell will also both need to successfully transition to green energy. Although the two have many resources, the transition won’t be easy. More companies such as Volvo are committing to producing all electric vehicles in the future and the return on green energy itself might not be as attractive as it was for many major oil projects in the past.Given the current oil price, however, I think both stocks could be attractive. Both companies also have substantial non-oil businesses in natural gas or convenience stores, and both have credible plans to adjust to a more sustainable future. Saudi Arabia was attacked.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York El río Connecticut es un sitio popular para remar en canoa y en kayak. A partir del 31 de mayo, también será un lugar de oración gracias a la peregrinación Río de la vida organizada por las diócesis de Nueva Inglaterra. Foto cortesía de Kairos Earth.[Episcopal News Service] El obispo de Nuevo Hampshire Robert Hirschfeld ha remado en el río Connecticut durante años. En un tiempo era una especie de “cloaca” industrial, pero de entonces a esta parte lo han limpiado para que vuelva a ser “un lugar de asombrosa belleza”, afirmó. Hirschfeld intenta mostrar que también puede ser un lugar de culto y de inspiración para orar.El obispo se prepara para dirigir una peregrinación de 40 días por el río, desde la fuente donde nace hasta el océano. En nuestra cultura de citas efectistas, el mensaje de Hirschfeld puede reducirse a esto: deja el celular y toma un remo.“Esta es una manera de experimentar el amor de Dios por nosotros, la gracia de Dios, el deseo de Dios que fluye en nosotros y en torno nuestro”, dijo Hirschfeld a Episcopal News Service en una entrevista telefónica. “Y en nuestra formación de una comunidad de peregrinos, mi deseo fue reducir y poner a un lado nuestros aparatos electrónicos, toda el ajetreo de nuestra vida, y sólo estar plenamente presente con Dios y unos con otros en medio de la creación de Dios”.La peregrinación del río de la vida, que se inicia el 31 de mayo cerca de la frontera canadiense, es una colaboración de todas las diócesis episcopales de Nueva Inglaterra, así como del Sínodo de Nueva Inglaterra de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América y varios grupos conservacionistas. Más de 50 personas se apuntaron con antelación para hacer segmentos de varios días en canoa o kayak, pasando la noche en campamentos, y otros están invitados a unirse al grupo para remar durante el día. El promedio de los segmentos diarios son de 15 o 20 kilómetros.Peregrinos sin remos o que viven lejos del río Connecticut son alentados a participar en la peregrinación siguiéndola como un “peregrino en oración” con el libro de oración del Río de la vida.El río Connecticut es el más largo de Nueva Inglaterra, atraviesa Nuevo Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts y Connecticut antes de desembocar en el canal de Long Island. Remar la longitud del río no es inusual, y un remador veloz haría el recorrido de 659 kilómetros en una semana. Pero Hirschfeld ve esto como un trayecto singular de carácter religioso, que ofrece una experiencia más lenta y más contemplativa.La elección de 40 días fue deliberada —teniendo presente los 40 días y noches de lluvia de Noé, o los [40 días] de Jesús en el desierto. Los organizadores querían también cuestionar la noción de que las peregrinaciones cristianas deben conducir a destinos tradicionales, tales como Tierra Santa.“¿Por qué es que nunca hemos contemplado hacer estas cosas en casa en nuestro sagrado paisaje, en los sitios en que realmente vivimos?”, preguntó el Rdo. Stephen Blackmer de la iglesia del Bosque [Church of the Woods] en Canterbury, Nuevo Hampshire. Él ha trabajado estrechamente con Hirschfeld y Jo Brooks, su coordinador logístico, en la planificación de la peregrinación del Río de la vida.“Parte del júbilo para mí de explorar esto es decir que podemos tener experiencias semejantes…aquí mismo”, dijo Blackmer. “Y en eso ambos nos acercamos a Dios y restauramos nuestras conexiones con los sitios mismos donde vivimos”.Blackmer, que comenzó a hacer piragüismo de niño, dijo que tenía aproximadamente 30 años de experiencia en la defensa del medioambiente antes de su llamado al sacerdocio hace unos pocos años, por el mismo tiempo en que consideraban a Hirschfeld para obispo de la Diócesis de Nuevo Hampshire.En 2011, Hirschfeld servía de rector en la iglesia episcopal de La Gracia [Grace Episcopal Church] en Amherst, Massachusetts, cuando recibió una carta en que lo invitaban a una entrevista para ser obispo de Nuevo Hampshire. Veterano de los equipos de remo a contracorriente en la secundaria y en la universidad, Hirschfeld necesitaba reflexionar sobre esa invitación, de manera que salió en su bote de espadilla de una sola plaza y se dirigió hacia el río Connecticut.Remando río arriba, le vino la idea de una peregrinación cristiana por el río que incorporaría referencias a su historia natural, su historia humana y su historia cultural.Durante varios años, esa idea siguió siendo solamente una idea. Fue electo obispo coadjutor en 2012 y tomó las riendas de la diócesis en enero siguiente. Luego, en 2015, mientras asistía al retiro anual de Adviento con todos los obispos de la I Provincia, se acordó de la peregrinación por el río y le mencionó la idea a los otros obispos.“Ellos de inmediato se entusiasmaron”, dijo Hirschfeld a ENS. “Fue como si hubiera sido un deslumbramiento. … Incluso los que no están interesados en hacer kayak o piragüismo, vieron el valor de hacer esto como un modo de liturgia pública, como una manera de dar testimonio de la salud del agua”.Blackmer, uno de los primeros sacerdotes que Hirschfeld ordenó en Nuevo Hampshire, ha estado al frente del ministerio medioambiental de la diócesis, incluidos los cultos semanales al aire libre en la iglesia del bosque, un terreno de 42 hectáreas de bosques y humedales en Canterbury.“Cuando la gente me pregunta qué hacemos por el medioambiente, lo primero que digo es, salimos afuera”,, dijo Blackmer.Eso, también es un principio orientador de la peregrinación del Río de la vida. Hirschfeld y Blackmer esperan que ocho peregrinos hagan el viaje hasta el nacimiento del río Connecticut, en el extremo norte de Nuevo Hampshire. Los primeros tres días los pasarán caminando de charca en charca en esa región hasta que el río naciente se torne navegable. Luego comenzarán a remar hacia el sur en tres canoas.“El número de peregrinos aumentará según el río va aumentando su caudal y el viaje prosiga aguas abajo durante las próximas cuatro semanas”, explicó Blackmer. Hirschfeld y Blackmer se ausentarán en algunos segmentos del viaje debido a sus compromisos individuales, pero cada uno se proponer remar más de la mitad del trayecto. Dos guías son los únicos remeros que esperan estar en el río la totalidad de los 40 días.Para la mitad norte del viaje, la mayor parte de las noches las pasaran en campamentos junto al río. En la mitad sur, donde los campamentos son más difíciles de encontrar, la mayoría de las noches las pasaran acampando en iglesias. Un vehículo de apoyo los seguirá por tierra con alimentos y otros suministros necesarios.Cada día se rezarán plegarias del libro de oraciones de la peregrinación, pero “la mayor parte de cada jornada pasará en silencio, para reflejar que parte de ella consiste simplemente en estar allí”, añadió Blackmer.También tienen programado hacer altos a lo largo del camino donde se celebrarán eventos comunitarios, típicamente los fines de semana. Una lista de eventos y días de navegación se encuentra en la página web de la peregrinación.Y por el tiempo en que el viaje llegue a Essex, Connecticut, el 8 de julio, para una celebración de clausura, “quién sabe si podemos tener una flotilla de canoas y kayaks”, apuntó Blackmer. La peregrinación concluye oficialmente al día siguiente, 9 de julio, con el último trayecto de 9,6 kilómetros hasta el canal de Long Island.Después de eso, cualquier río de Estados Unidos podría estar a punto para la próxima peregrinación, si otra diócesis quiere recoger el remo innovador de las diócesis de Nueva Inglaterra.“Estamos tomando extensas notas según avanzamos en esto”, dijo Hirschfeld. “Sería magnífico si otras diócesis y otras organizaciones espirituales pudieran replicar esto”.— David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

April 16, 2020 at 6:28 am Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. 1 COMMENT The Anatomy of Fear Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here We’ve all met people who play the victim. They love waffling about their woes, and how the world has mistreated them.Judy, Senior Manager at Trump Learning which provides the best mcat prep course, says victims never take responsibility for their own acts, even though they are the ones who begin the drama and keep stirring the pot. They refuse to accept that their actions lead to the adverse results in their lives. It can be emotionally exhausting to be near someone like this. They tend to gravitate toward people who listen like a therapist and want to become their cheerleader.Bad things happen to us all. You could have had a parent die, become a victim of a crime, or been laid off, all of which are beyond your control. You don’t have to own what happened as your fault. But you do have a choice on how you react to the situation.So let’s get into some practical steps we can take when dealing with someone who perpetually plays the role of victim.Realize that they have been doing this for a long time, and you cannot change who they are. To understand this is vitally important. So many of us are good people and instinctively want to help. But someone with the victim mentality gets attached to a person so they can fulfill his or her needs. They get quick fixes that feel good for a moment, but then go back to the same place they were before. For example, they could ask for a dollar and you give them a million; in six months they will be back to ask you again for a dollar. They have latched onto the idea that they are the world’s victim, and there is nothing anyone can do about that. Even when they strike good fortune, they will find a way to turn it into bad luck.Nick, who offers to do my accounting homework services with TAE says, when you recognize that someone has a victim mentality, and understand no matter what they will continue in this vein, at least that is a beginning to understanding what you’re really dealing with. It doesn’t mean they will always have this attitude and manipulate others, but the first step in coping with someone like this is realizing that, at this point in their lives, they don’t want to improve. This mentality is “working” for them for now, getting them what they want and filling a need they have.Honor your own boundaries around themOnce I told my friend “No.” when he asked for money. I made it clear to him that I would not get pulled into his problems, enabling him, or giving him a quick fix. I didn’t actually use these terms, I just said “No”. Immediately after I told him “No”, I also shared how much I valued our friendship and shared that I never want to have any bad feelings between us. When someone owes you money and they haven’t paid it back, it’s uncomfortable to be around them, and you hate to bring it up every time. But if you don’t, you never get paid. So to avoid that from happening, I just said “No” up front.When you respect yourself, you’ll stop being involved in a victim’s drama. This will keep you at enough of a distance where you are not involved with their manipulations.Ask “Why?”Many self-perpetuating victims get a “why bother? “attitude because they think nothing can improve, so they will not try something different. You might want to ask them, “Why do you think that continues to happen to you?”, following up with,”Has it ever happened before?”. Lucky, an expert that students use to write my essay for me, says this follow-up question could help them remember a time before their victimhood started, and potentially help them recall a moment of their life that was not that bad.If a victim has been through some difficult situations, they likely would need counseling. Therapy could be required to clean up some old belief systems they have had all their lives. They could still have a child’s perspective on life if they haven’t dealt with issues that arose during their childhood but never got dealt with. Which leads to the next question that could help them take the next step.Ask “What is one thing you can change about your life now that will prevent this from happening again in the future?” This gives victims an opportunity to share what happens inside of them. Let them voice their emotions. Kelly, who works with TFTH and provides services like assignment help sydney says, when victims tap into what they believe is possible, they tap into what they need to cure themselves. It is a deeper place that they probably don’t visit very much, so it’s nice that they take a moment to interact with that part of themselves. When you think about what you can do to better your life, you are relating to a part of yourself that wants to improve. They can begin to identify those deeply rooted negative emotions when that happens.There is a chance they will begin to see some possibilities for a brighter future when they start to dig deeper. It’s a slim chance, but there’s an opportunity opened. And when there is a chance, there is a glimmer of hope that wasn’t there before.Those with a victim mentality are often serial complainers. A persistent complainer needs an audience. Nick, who offers research paper writing service says, if you meet someone who sympathizes with you, you get the attention you want. This plays into their desires, and makes them feel listened to, so they’ll do it even more.A chronic complainer will wear you out. Soon you will get to the point that you can’t take anymore and will walk away. But the persistent complainer will need their next fix, so will keep searching for someone with patience to listen to them, and they’ll start all over with them. A persistent complainer wants an audience, as John who works with EduWorldUSA, has remarked. They get the attention they want if they can find someone who sympathizes with them, which plays into their unhealthy cycle. They’ll cry more to get more attention, and to them, the attention they get feels like a remedy and what they need.The reality is, people will grow tired of the perpetual victim. The earlier you distance yourself from them, the better. Without professional help the chronic complainer, still needing their fix, will patiently keep searching until they find someone to start over with, someone who will give them the sympathy they crave.

Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Battle Lines Being Drawn on GMO Bill Name Sym Last Change The American Farm Bureau Federation’s Board of Directors today voted to support efforts of Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS) to move forward with a bill to pre-empt state GMO labeling mandates. “The Senate Agriculture Committee this week is marking up a bill to provide American consumers a wealth of easily accessible, accurate information about GMOs through a voluntary, national GMO labeling program,” AFBF President Zippy Duvall said. “The bill would pre-empt a patchwork of mandatory and misleading state GMO labeling laws founded more on scare-tactics than science, and we must move this process forward.” Duvall said Chairman Roberts’ bill will provide consumers access to information they need to make informed choices in the marketplace. He emphasized, however, that AFBF would closely monitor the bill’s progress to ensure it is compatible with AFBF’s grassroots policy. “The key provisions of this effort will ensure greater transparency for consumers, with an emphasis on science rather than state-by-state scare tactics,” Duvall said, adding that 750 Farm Bureau members from across the nation are taking that message to Capitol Hill this week during a grassroots fly-in.The National Farmers Union has taken a less aggressive stance than Farm Bureau. National Farmers Union (NFU) President Roger Johnson released the following statement: “National Farmers Union (NFU) represents 200,000 family farmers and ranchers across the nation who employ a wide variety of practices and philosophies. Many of our members have chosen to incorporate genetically modified organisms (GMOs) into their production methods, while others have made different choices. The rights of GMO and non-GMO producers should be respected as equal while public concerns about GMOs are evaluated by federal agencies. NFU also values consumer rights, including the ability of consumers to have access to as much pertinent information as they want to know about their food. We support mandatory labeling of foods derived from genetically engineered plants, although we do not have policy on what such labeling should look like. As such, NFU opposes the proposed GMO labeling bill in its current form.”Environmental groups are also mobilizing in opposition to the legislation. Friends of the Earth, Food and Technology Program Director Lisa Archer offers the following statement in response: “Friends of the Earth strongly supports mandatory GMO labeling and urges the Senate to reject the DARK Act. This bill is a desperate attempt by the junk food and chemical industries to keep Americans in the dark about what we feed our families. 93 percent of Americans want GMO labeling and this effort to try and stop the consumer demand for transparency that has shaken Big Food to its core will ultimately fail. Any member of Congress that fails to see the writing on the wall and chooses to support this antiquated and undemocratic bill will find that they are on the wrong side of history.” SHARE Corn ZCN21 (JUL 21) 684.50 -14.50 Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 Feeder Cattle GFQ21 (AUG 21) 151.18 2.78 Previous articleFewer Grain Entrapments Reported in 2015Next articleThe Benefits of Indiana Farm Bureau Membership Hoosier Ag Today RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Battle Lines Being Drawn on GMO Bill How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Minor Changes in June WASDE Report Facebook Twitter Live Cattle LEM21 (JUN 21) 118.70 1.13 Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 SHARE Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 24, 2016 All quotes are delayed snapshots STAY CONNECTED5,545FansLike3,961FollowersFollow187SubscribersSubscribe
