Credible mechanisms to resolve insolvent banks could have prevented the Irish and Greek bailouts, and may be required to save the euro, he added.

But while he said he was relaxed about excessive risk-taking by private individuals and enterprises, he added: “States cannot have that sort of right… Sovereign countries face the problem of sovereign debt and yet are unwillingness to cut expenditure.”He also mentioned that Moscow intends to raise the issue of intellectual property rights at the next G20 meeting.

Forget gold: I’d buy today’s top stock picks to get rich and retire early

first_img See all posts by Peter Stephens Peter Stephens | Sunday, 6th December, 2020 I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. The idea of buying today’s top stock picks may lack appeal to some investors. The 2020 stock market crash could be fresh in their minds, while an uncertain economic outlook may hold back the performance of many sectors.As such, they may determine that buying physical gold or a gold ETF is a better idea. However, low valuations on offer across the stock market and a likely economic recovery mean that stocks could outperform gold in the long run.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…The impact of an improving economic outlook on today’s top stock picksToday’s top stock picks are likely to include those companies that have solid financial positions, wide economic moats and that trade at low prices. Looking ahead, they could experience improving operating conditions in the coming years.Certainly, the world economy may yet face more challenges in 2021 after what has been a tough 2020. However, it has always returned to positive GDP growth following even its greatest challenges.Therefore, the prospects for a wide range of companies could improve significantly in the coming years. This may lead to higher profit growth that allows them to command premium valuations.Furthermore, the stock market could be positively impacted by policies followed in many countries across the world. For example, monetary policy has become increasingly accommodative this year in response to a weak economic outlook.This could strengthen the prospects for a number of industries and may have a positive impact on asset prices over the long run.Potential challenges for goldAn improving economic outlook may be good news for today’s top stock picks. However, it could mean the gold price comes under a degree of pressure. Investors have historically bought gold based on a weak economic outlook.Should global GDP growth prospects improve, demand for gold could fall. This may lead to a less attractive performance from the precious metal in the coming years.Furthermore, many of today’s most attractive stocks trade at low prices. Investor sentiment has yet to recover across all industries following the stock market crash. By contrast, the gold price has reached a record high in recent months.This suggests it may offer a far narrower margin of safety than is the case for many shares. The end result could be more limited gains over the coming years than are achievable from buying today’s top stocks.Of course, if a gold miner offers a wide margin of safety at the present time then it could prove to be attractive as part of a diverse portfolio of today’s top stock picks. However, buying physical gold or a gold ETF may be a relatively unattractive option compared to a portfolio of equities.Building a retirement portfolioMany investors in today’s top stock picks are likely to have a long time horizon until they retire. Therefore, they’re likely to benefit from a return to strong growth for the world economy and global stock markets.As such, building a portfolio of shares could be a better idea than buying gold. Their low valuations and likely recovery potential mean they could produce a larger retirement portfolio in the long run. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Otros artículos de esta serie se pueden encontrar aquí.[Episcopal News Service] Un musulmán de Pakistán se levanta para compartir el rito de la paz durante un oficio matutino en la iglesia de la Ascensión en Múnich. Puede ser diferente del tipo de culto al que estaba acostumbrado en su mezquita de Peshawar, pero él es uno de los varios refugiados que han encontrado acogida en la parroquia episcopal luego de haberse visto obligado a huir del extremismo y la persecución.“Quise estrecharle la mano y no la encontré”, dijo el Rdo. Steve Smith, rector de la Ascensión. Después del oficio, el hombre le dijo a Smith que los Talibán había volado su mezquita. “Él perdió a su padre y perdió la mano derecha”, contó Smith.Smith ha oído historias semejantes de sirios, afganos e iraquíes que dicen que se fueron “porque había tanta violencia, tantas armas, tantas bombas que no podían arriesgarse a seguir allí”.Todos los domingos, la iglesia de la Ascensión le da la bienvenida a refugiados del centro de asilo del Campamento McGraw, situado cerca de la iglesia, en los terrenos que ve fueron una instalación del Ejército de EE.UU.Dirigido por la Misión Innere, que ha estado durante mucho tiempo asociada con la Ascensión, McGrow es un primer centro de acogida donde albergan a los refugiados recién llegados hasta que les encuentran una ubicación más permanente.“La mayoría de ellos son musulmanes, y están sorprendidos de la bienvenida que les hemos dados no siendo cristianos”, dijo Smith a ENS. “Se sorprenden que los invitemos a adorar con nosotros, pero para mí es un pedazo del cielo, reunirnos en adoración, alabando al único Dios”.Múnich, la ciudad más grande del sur de Alemania, ha sido el principal puerto de entrada para los refugiados, muchos de los cuales han viajado durante semanas para llegar allí. Sólo en septiembre, Alemania acogió a unos 200.000 refugiados en sus fronteras y espera que el número total ascienda a 1 millón para fines de año.La [iglesia de la] Ascensión, parte de la Convocación de las Iglesia Episcopales en Europa, ha organizado varias recogidas de ropa y artículos de aseo personal para distribuirlos entre los refugiados locales. Cada jueves por la tarde, la Ascensión y Emmauskirche, la iglesia luterana donde la [congregación de] la Ascensión celebra su culto y tiene sus oficinas, recibe y acoge a los refugiados para proporcionarles alimento, fraternidad, juegos y lecciones de alemán. El número de refugiados que acude a la tarde de la hospitalidad ha aumentado de 10 a 60 desde que [esta actividad] comenzara en septiembre.Gracias a una subvención de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo, la Ascensión está expandiendo su ministerio en el Campamento McGraw para crear un programa de música y construir un cobertizo para guardar las bicicletas que están disposición de los refugiados.Nagulan Nesiah, encargado de programa de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo, dijo que es importante para la iglesia mantenerse como un lugar de refugio para las personas que escapen, en todo el mundo, de crisis relacionadas con desastres naturales o provocadas por los seres humanos. “Esto ha sido excelentemente probado por el ministerio de la iglesia de la Ascensión en Múnich, donde la iglesia ha abierto sus puertas a la hospitalidad, al culto y al acompañamiento, mientras conserva la dignidad de aquellos a los que sirve”, le dijo él a ENS recientemente. “En consulta con el campamento de refugiados, la iglesia de Múnich ha dedicado horas al diálogo compasivo con las personas antes de determinar el papel y la respuesta de la iglesia”.Smith dijo que le había llevado un tiempo a la parroquia definir su ministerio, en gran medida porque las autoridades alemanas han estado muy bien organizadas para lidiar con el influjo de refugiados, pero también porque querían cerciorarse de que su respuesta a la crisis fuera meditada y adecuada.El ministerio de la Ascensión para los refugiados se remonta a unos 25 años, cuando la parroquia fundó el Centro de Solicitantes de Asilo en asociación con las iglesias catolicorromana y luterana del barrio. “Fue a través del Centro que la Ascensión pudo conectarse en primer lugar con el Campamento McGraw”, explicó Smith. “Por supuesto, la situación actual nos ha hecho redoblar nuestros esfuerzos, pero hemos estado en esto por largo tiempo”.Al igual que Smith y sus feligreses, muchos episcopales y sus asociados ecuménicos a través de Europa no ven su respuesta a la peor crisis mundial de refugiados desde la segunda guerra mundial como algo de corta duración.El mes pasado, durante su convención anual, la Convocación aprobó una resolución en que llamaba a los episcopales de Europa a participar en un período de renovado compromiso con sus ministerio de acogida a los refugiados, informándose sobre los problemas, trabajando ecuménicamente y “abogando por políticas justas y compasivas tanto en la esfera nacional como internacional que fortalezcan la recepción y la integración de nuevas poblaciones migrantes en medio nuestro”.“Somos llamados a tratar a todos los hijos de Dios con dignidad y respeto”, dijo Smith, “y estos refugiados son hijos de Dios. Muchos… no son cristianos, pero aun así son hijos de Dios.“Es bíblicamente imperativo” responder con compasión, añadió. “Si queremos ser parte del Movimiento de Jesús, debemos hacer esta obra”.Recursos para capacitar y dar respuestaLas actualizaciones más recientes de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo acerca de su respuesta a la crisis de los refugiados, así como los medios de hacer donaciones, se encuentran aquí.El Ministerio Episcopal de Migración —el servicio de reasentamiento de refugiados de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera— colabora con asociados locales dedicados al reasentamiento, con congregaciones y con voluntarios individuales para acoger a refugiados en Estados Unidos provenientes de muchos lugares del mundo asolados por la guerra.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

An agricultural and livestock building of the early twentieth century located in a town on the Castilian Plateau of Spain has been deprecated.

It is intended to live the different spaces according to the season of the year. The creaking of the barn seeks to preserve thermal energy through the inertia conferred by the adobe wall.

Due to the leaks, one of them was rotten. It is decided to remove it and open a central courtyard that generates an outdoor space close to the kitchen, which allows you to enjoy meals in summer. On both sides of the courtyard, bright spaces are achieved that contrast with the small hollows of the old barn and allow the creation of winter gardens and living areas in the colder months. This is possible because the old tile and part of the shingle boards are replaced by cellular polycarbonate panels. It seeks to lighten a structure with symptoms of exhaustion and generate a covered space in which to perceive the light variations of the outer space.

James Wilcox, the university’s Catholic chaplain, said he worked with the Diocese of Fort Worth to lease the space.Catholics are the largest religious denomination at TCU. More than 2,200 students identified themselves as Catholic, according to the 2015 Factbook.Kelly Guilbeau, liturgy chair for the Catholic Campus Ministry, said the Newman Center will bring “a better sense of community.”“I’ve seen centers on other college campuses be wonderful places for Catholic students to gather and build friendships,” Guilbeau said. “I can’t wait to see what it will do for our community.”Wilcox said the Newman Center will be “the home for TCU Catholic students, but [it] is welcome to anyone. There will be office space, work space, kitchen space, places to relax and, of course, places to pray.”Meggie Koch, co-president of the Catholic community, said she thinks the space will help build a “tighter knit community.”“It will be so nice to have a central location for all Catholic TCU students to hang out, study and pray together. I think it will help the Catholic community expand and reach out to more students.”Wilcox has been working to establish a Newman Center since his appointment in the summer. He said he wanted to create “a place for Catholic and non-Catholic students to just be.”The center will allow students to establish a relationship with Christ while finding “comfort in friendships and security in our blessed Lord,” said Tom Centarri, the Catholic community’s campus minister.While most of the Newman Center was planned as an open space, there is a special walled-off section for a chapel. The Newman Center will hold weekday masses and Bible studies in the chapel.“There will be a chapel for adoration and a place for confession,” Wilcox said. “It will be much more quiet and private there.”“I’m really excited for the opening,” said Michael Arterburn, a junior political science major. “It’s going to be a great resource for the Catholic Community and will serve as a tool to build a stronger sense of community.” Previous articleWeekend Sports Roundup: Jan. 15-17Next articleTCU alumna’s villainess role on ‘Bachelor’ might not be reality Hank Kilgore RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Twitter Linkedin Hank Kilgorehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/hank-kilgore/ Facebook ReddIt Twitter TCU social work majors go into the field to help support Fort Worth’s homelesslast_img read more

Man receives 45-year sentence for enhanced DWI

first_img WhatsApp Ector County logo, Scales of Justice An Ector County jury found a man guilty Wednesday of an enhanced felony charge of driving while intoxicated in 2016 and handed down a 45-year prison sentence. Ector County District Attorney Bobby Bland said over the phone on Thursday morning that residents of the area are tired of people driving while intoxicated. “There’s no doubt it was a high sentence, but it was justified based on the facts of the case,” Bland said. “The jury returned that verdict based on those facts. Our citizens are fed up with drunk drivers on the streets and violating that law carries serious consequences.” Bland said the district attorney’s office proved Joe Antonio Luna, 59, had two previous driving while intoxicated convictions — one from Dawson County and the other from Lubbock County — but he added there were more than those two. Luna also has a charge of bail jumping and failure to appear, a third-degree felony, and Bland said that charge is still pending. Luna had previously pleaded guilty to separate counts of failure to identify, giving false or fictitious information in 2016 and 2018. Each were class B misdemeanors. Bland said once Luna decided to go to trial, a guilty sentence would carry 25 years to life in prison. Bland also stated Luna was a habitual criminal which included a burglary of a building in 1988 and assaulting a peace officer in 1991.
