Perform targets US expansion with LaLiga renewal

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Marketing & affiliates Perform targets US expansion with LaLiga renewal Tags: OTB and Betting Shops Topics: Marketing & affiliates Content division views contract extension as key for US market penetration Regions: US Digital sports media company Perform has extended its exclusive video betting coverage deal in various territories for LaLiga, which represents the top two divisions of Spanish football.The renewed agreement, covering territories outside Spain, Andorra and the Middle East and North Africa, will run until the end of the 2022-23 season.The Perform Content division has secured 848 matches per season across the top two tiers. Perform split its operations into distinct units recently, with DAZN, the company’s flourishing OTT service, sitting alongside data-focused Perform Content, as well as betting-oriented Perform Gaming and Perform Media, which includes brands such as the company’s popular Goal.com website and mobile app.According to Perform Content chief commercial officer Andrew Ashenden, it will form a key component of the company’s US-facing video portfolio, with the market opening up to sports betting on a state-by-state basis after PASPA, the federal legislation that outlawed sports betting – was overturned in May by the Supreme Court.“As with other territories we’ve built a portfolio of video rights that provide coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Ashenden told iGamingBusiness.com.“We’re continuing to add to this portfolio and LaLiga is a great property both from a timing perspective and also because there is genuine interest in the league in the US.“The US offers us opportunities to expand existing streaming deals and engage new clients. Growth in the US will be entirely dependent on states enacting regulation to permit sports betting and the type of environment that the regulation creates for operators.“At the moment we’re excited about what we’re seeing in New jersey but other States are more challenging for operators.”The LaLiga Data Centre, jointly led by Perform Content and LaLiga, was created with the aim of ensuring that LaLiga maximises the use of official match data across multiple sectors and channels by using Perform Content’s sports data services via Perform Content’s Opta and RunningBall data brands.LaLiga audiovisual area director Melcior Soler added: “At LaLiga we are committed to using the latest video and analytical innovation wherever possible and Perform Content’s initiatives in this field will put us in a position to maximise our streaming capabilities in key markets well into the next decade.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 12th October 2018 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

888 becomes first NFL team partner

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 888 has become the first major operator to forge a deal with an NFL team after confirming it has partnered with the New York Jets.888 signage has been visible at the Jets’ MetLife Stadium for some weeks, but the deal was only confirmed by the betting company today (Tuesday). 888 is already licensed and operational in New Jersey, where the Jets’ stadium is located.888 said its branding will be seen during the Jets games, including within ‘red-zone’ highlights shown on the stadium’s videoboards. 888.com’s sponsorship includes the use of Jets branding and logos in marketing materials as well as adverts distributed during New York Jets game day radio coverage and across the New York Jets digital platforms.Yaniv Sherman, 888’s head of group commercial development at 888, said the deal will “further strengthen the 888 brand in the US market”.He added: “This exciting deal between the New York Jets and 888.com is a significant moment for both 888 and our industry as it marks the first ever sponsorship agreement between an NFL team and a global online operator.“888 has a unique position across the three regulated states for full online gaming… This will support the successful delivery of our growth strategy to be a leading operator in the developing and potentially significant US online gaming market.”888 began offering sports betting in New Jersey in September, some five years after it launched its online gaming platform in the state. Its long-standing land-based partner is Caesars.The deal comes after the NBA and NHL signed league-wide partnerships with MGM. FanDuel was this week also announced as a partner of the NHL, while several teams in both sports have agreed their own deals. In September the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys signed a sponsorship deal with a casino, WinStar World Casino and Resort, just days after the American football league relaxed its rules on such commercial partnerships.Research published by the American Gaming Association (AGA) recently suggests the NFL could boost its annual revenue by $2.3bn (£1.78bn/€1.98bn) per year through widely available, legal, regulated US sports betting.

This FTSE AIM 100 technology stock is flying. I think it can keep rising

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Edward Sheldon, CFA | Tuesday, 21st January, 2020 | More on: DOTD Average revenue per customer was up 14% to £999 per month, driven by “an increase in existing client spend and new customers taking a wider array of modules and channels”. International growth was strong. In the US, revenue grew 18% to $5.1m, while in the APAC region, revenue increased 51% to AU$2.5m. Overall, international sales increased to 34% of total sales from 30% last year. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The company ended the year with a healthy cash balance of £22.5m (H1 2019: £16.6m). Earlier this month, I named my top UK small-cap growth stocks for 2020. Digital marketing group dotdigital (LSE: DOTD), which specialises in artificial intelligence-fused SaaS (software as a service) marketing solutions, was one of the stocks that made the list.At the time, DOTD shares were trading for 96p. Since then, they’ve surged to 112.5p, meaning they’ve climbed about 17% in less than three weeks. Here, I’ll look at why the shares have jumped recently and explain why I believe they have the potential to keep rising.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…Excellent trading updateOne reason DOTD’s share price has increased (it’s up 6% today) is that the company released an excellent trading update this morning, ahead of its half-year results for the six-month period to 31 December.There’s a lot to like about today’s update. Here are some of the highlights: “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA It’s also worth highlighting the upbeat statement from CEO Milan Patel (note the phrases I’ve highlighted in bold):Looking forwards, the market opportunity remains substantial, with a growing number of brands recognising the critical value of harnessing customer data and insights to create personalised, omnichannel marketing campaigns. Against this backdrop, and with a robust strategy and business model, powerful technology platform and highly talented team in place, we find ourselves in our strongest position to date, and are confident of continuing to build on the momentum in the business as we move into the second half.Overall, this is a great update and management sounds very confident about the future, which I see as a bullish signal.New chairAnother reason the shares have climbed this year is that last week the group appointed a new non-executive chair. The new chair, Michael O’Leary, brings a wealth of experience to the company as his career spans over 30 years working with AIM-listed, FTSE 250, and FTSE 100 companies, with a focus on the tech sector. This looks to be a good appointment.Potential for further gainsCan the stock keep rising from here? Well, after the 17% share price rise, dotdigital shares are obviously not as cheap as they were at the start of the year. However, to my mind, the current valuation still offers room for growth.With analysts forecasting earnings per share of 4.04p (this looks very achievable given that earnings last year were 3.88p), the forward-looking price-to-earnings ratio is 27.8. When you consider the stock’s high-quality attributes (high return on equity, low debt, solid track record of dividend growth) and the fact that many tech stocks currently sport P/E ratios in the 30s, I believe this valuation is quite reasonable.All things considered, I see an exciting growth story here. As dotdigital continues to grow, I expect the share price to keep rising. Enter Your Email Address This FTSE AIM 100 technology stock is flying.

Royston Wild | Friday, 19th February, 2021 | More on: ASC FORT STVG See all posts by Royston Wild The outlook for many UK shares remains packed with danger as the public health emergency rumbles on. But I continue to buy British stocks for my Stocks and Shares ISA despite the uncertain economic picture. Here are three I think could make me lots of money in the years ahead.#1: A bright UK e-retailing shareI think the booming e-commerce sector makes ASOS (LSE: ASC) one of the best UK shares to buy today. This particular fashion retailer offers a broad range of products and brands across many price points. And it trades across Europe and the US, giving it terrific strength through diversification. What’s more, by focusing on the 20-somethings demographic, it’s centred its operations on the most lucrative group in terms of fashion spending.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…Now ASOS’s shares don’t come cheap. City analysts reckon the company’s earnings will rise 13% this fiscal year (to August 2021). This leaves it trading on a high forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 40 times. Such a vertiginous valuation leaves the stock in danger of a share price correction if trading begins to disappoint.#2: A brickmaking beautyBritish house prices continue soaring at a stratospheric pace as demand keeps on exceeding supply. This means housebuilding needs to pick up significantly in the years ahead. And this bodes well for UK brickmaking shares like Forterra (LSE: FORT).The government has stepped up attempts to improve construction rates in recent years and homebuilding on these shores hit 33-year highs last year. It’s likely an overhaul of the planning system will help construction activity during the 2020s too.City forecasts expect annual earnings at Forterra to soar 130% in 2021. Consequently, it trades on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. This sub-1 reading suggests the brick manufacturer could be wildly undervalued today.Bear in mind though that estimates can miss to the downside as well as the upside. And this can pull share prices lower. Investors like me need to remember too that a bumpy economic recovery could damage demand for Forterra’s products in the short-to-medium term.#3: A streaming great broadcasterI also like the look of STV Group (LSE: STVG) right now. This is despite the broadcaster facing significant threats from the likes of Netflix and other major streaming companies, which I have to take into account when considering investing in this stock. The business has pumped huge amounts of money and plenty of effort into developing its own video-on-demand (VOD) capabilities. And this is paying off handsomely. Indeed, streaming via its STV Player platform soared 68% in 2020, faster than any other broadcaster’s VOD service. And the platform’s 12.5m streams in January was up 115% from the same month last year.City analysts currently think STV’s annual earnings will rise 12% in 2021. As a result, the UK share trades on a forward PEG ratio of 0.9. I think this low valuation, coupled with a bulky 4% dividend yield, makes the broadcaster an attractive stock to buy today. “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.

Reorganized Diocese of Fort Worth is ‘participating in resurrection’

first_imgReorganized Diocese of Fort Worth is ‘participating in resurrection’ Episcopalians are learning how to ‘be church,’ not just ‘go to church’ January 4, 2017 at 9:20 am In my opinion if I worked at 815, Would find a way to reconcile with the other diocese. How? I would allow them to continue to participate in the Pension and Health Insurance Programs, create common Christian education curriculum, drop all law suits, and wait. Reconciliation will come in a natural way. When it is time to come back, the church would be stronger.Bishop Rowe is right. The Episcopal Church has too much bureaucracy for its membership. We need 25 percent fewer diocese by 2020. You can have as many Bishops as you need. Let some of them also serve churches or other missions. Stop funding places that are not sustainable. The reminder of FT Worth is not sustainable. The church is holding on to get buildings in a law suit, sell them, and capitalize the profits to sustain the structure. Wrong approach! Our goal should be to grow the “Jesus Movement,” not the church. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Editor’s note: This is the first in a continuing series about the reinvention of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. This story was updated Jan. 9 with an explanation of how the Diocese of Fort Worth has calculated its growth statistics. [Episcopal News Service – Fort Worth, Texas] For Episcopalians who think of “church” as a place to go rather than a thing to be, the continuing Diocese of Fort Worth has some stories to share.They are stories of more than reorganizing – or even resuscitating – a diocesan and congregational structure after a majority of former clergy and lay leaders voted in November 2008 to leave the Episcopal Church. They are stories of resurrection – of Episcopalians reinventing church and, in the process, themselves.“We‘re not trying to rebuild an old church,” says Fort Worth Bishop Provisional J. Scott Mayer, who is also the bishop of the Diocese of Northwest Texas. “We are trying to participate in resurrection to become a new body.”Those people have built new ministries and, in the process, are developing new ways of being the church as they serve their communities.And, when they “go to church,” some Fort Worth Episcopalians are worshipping in unconventional spaces such as a theater and a strip mall. In one instance, the Wise County Episcopalians are worshipping in a building that began its life as the Episcopal Mission of the Ascension in 1889 and during the intervening years has been a mattress factory and, most recently, a wedding chapel.Even the bishop’s office is different. While the model of a bishop provisional is being used elsewhere in the Episcopal Church, it is still a relative rarity but one which Mayer thinks illustrates how dioceses could pool their resources.He notes that Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania Bishop Sean Rowe, who is also the bishop provisional of the Diocese of Bethlehem in the eastern part of that state, points out that in the 1960s the Episcopal Church had fewer dioceses but now has more dioceses and fewer people.“That may not be a sustainable model for all of us,” Mayer said, adding that while he is not necessarily advocating combining dioceses, the Church may need to find new ways to share diocesan resources.“And, in this case, the resource to share would be the bishop,” he said.Mayer is Fort Worth’s fourth bishop provisional. The first was then-Bishop of Kentucky Edwin F. “Ted” Gulick Jr. He was followed by retired Northwest Texas Bishop C. Wallis Ohl Jr. and then retired Texas Bishop Suffragan Rayford B. High Jr.Fort Worth has 17 congregations, including a Lutheran congregation pastored by an Episcopal priest. In the time since the split, the diocese has seen a 19.3 percent increase in communicant members and an 11.9 percent increase in operating revenue. Since reorganizing in 2009, Fort Worth has annually paid the full amount asked of it by the Episcopal Church to support the churchwide triennial budget.  It is the only one of six dioceses in the state of Texas to do so.Fort Worth Communication Director Katie Sherrod told Episcopal News Service that after the reorganization of the diocese in 2009, all its records were in disarray since the former bishop was occupying the diocesan offices and other Episcopal Church property. “We spent 2009 and 2010 locating Episcopalians, reconstructing congregations, finding clergy, and locating places to worship. By 2011/2012, we finally had a realistic assessment of membership in the congregations of the diocese,” she said. “It is those figures on which our assessment of our growth is based.”Transforming the way the Episcopal Church ministers in the 24 counties of north central Texas comes out of necessity, in part, as the Episcopal Church and the diocese seek to recover property and other assets still controlled those who left. The Texas Court of Appeals is considering the case after hearing oral arguments in the case on April 19, 2016.“It is anticipated, however, that the decision of this court will be appealed to the Texas Supreme Court by whichever party the ruling goes against at the Court of Appeals level,” Sherrod said.The wider Episcopal Church has supported the diocese’s reinvention. The Executive Council, which has met in the diocese twice since the split, in June offered a combination of a direct grant from the churchwide budget, money raised by the Church’s development office and the presiding bishop, and grants for church planting and mission enterprise zone development through the Resolution 2015-D005 church planting process.The funding, being matched by the diocese and its congregations, is helping to support clergy who are in charge of fast-growing faith communities.The 4 Saints Food Pantry, an effort to respond to the needs of and to build relationships with hungry people in a food desert on the east side of Fort Worth, has received a $20,000 Mission Enterprise Zone grant. The ministry will use the money to begin buying equipment required for a licensed food pantry. The pantry will operate out of St. Luke’s in the Meadow Episcopal Church, Fort Worth. Eventually, it will formally partner with the Tarrant Area Food Bank. St. Luke’s; St. Martin’s, Keller-Southlake; St. Stephen’s, Hurst; and St. Alban’s (worshiping in Theatre Arlington), are the four “saints” partnering in the ministry.Other grant requests, including one to plant a church on the fast-growing west side of Fort Worth, are in process, in an effort to claim additional funds related to D005, Sherrod said.In the coming days, Episcopal News Service will feature four of the Diocese of Fort Worth’s resurrection stories.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. January 3, 2017 at 9:46 pm I attend St.Stephen’s Episcopal Church, in Guymon OK, and we are blessed to be served by an ELCA pastor, whose parish is 20 miles to the south, at Oslo TX, and he is learning the Episcopal ‘ways’ and enjoying it. He has even attended our diocesan convention in OK. Apart from celebrating the Eucharist twice a month he has made visitations and assisted at the funeral of a long-time member.

This story is heart-warming. I am in a diocese that went through the same issues. It will cause us to pray for God’s guidance in the renewal of our diocese. Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Submit an Event Listing January 3, 2017 at 9:08 pm In some ways a “unity” in a liberal sense is possible, however being a former Lutheran and a seminary graduate and now being an Episcopalian I would stress CARE in any sharing of“Clergy” as Lutherans DO NOT ACCEPT HOLY ORDERS and if there are any exchange ofdeacons it should be made clear that LUTHERANS DO NOT CONSIDER DEACONS TO BECLERGY. There are most likely other differences that need to be addressed. Unity, orworking together is good, care and respect for important differences in rites and traditionmust be carefully acknowledged. January 3, 2017 at 5:20 pm I am so happy for the diocese of Ft. Worth, the faithful Episcopalians and their clergy, especially the women! I was there during the dark days when the Episcopal Women’s Caucus had to celebrate the Eucharistic in a local synagogue. We were ever so grateful to our Jewish friends. It was a painful time, and I am thrilled about the “resurrection.” Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA April 9, 2017 at 1:54 pm A response, just my personal opinion, to Jeffrey Cox. First and foremost, those who LEFT the Episcopal CHOSE to leave us, not the other way around. And it is like being married. You cannot force someone to remain a part of a marriage if in their heart and mind they CHOOSE to leave. As for sustainable. Our congregation and every other congregation in this diocese have worked long and hard over the past years to return to being self-supporting. AND we pay our assessment both locally AND to the National Church. Many of us have been blessed with increases in membership and are doing well, thanks be to God. Our church has taken VERY little in the way of help, and has become much more fiscally responsible. Indeed in many ways – including spiritually – we are healthier than we have ever been. Who are you to judge us unsustainable? We are a part of the kingdom of God, and the Jesus movement, and we have been blessed beyond measure in too many ways to even begin to list. We may not have big fancy buildings but we have the Love of Jesus Christ, and are determined to continue to be His light and hands and feet in the world. Don’t you dare tell us we aren’t sustainable. With Christ for us, who can stand against us. AMEN.; January 3, 2017 at 4:33 pm I appreciate that there are some numbers in this article, as well as godly storytelling. Allow me to encourage more use of numbers, good and bad, in your series – though the good ones are sure nice to see. Congratulations, people of Fort Worth. You rock!I certainly was struck by Dio Fort Worth’s paying its full DFMS assessment – and the fact that none of its wealthier neighbors do. This missionary society of ours does less mission as a result. (This of course goes for everyone else in arrears too; maybe mine, I’ll check.) Till then I look forward to more godly storytelling from Ms. Schjonberg. We can always use more resurrection!++P.S. Is godly storytelling a thing, or did I just make that up? I kind of like the sound of it; if it’s a thing and I’m late to the party, kudos to the better informed. It’s certainly what I hope to hear, see, watch and read from clergy and lay – and the kind of stories I know we try to tell each other, which is why I love this church. Can’t wait for the next episode. Rector Albany, NY January 3, 2017 at 6:40 pm My father, Father Bill Belury, (former Rector of St John’s Fort Worth, 1980-1994) was very sad to see the split of the church in his home diocese over such a trivial issue. Dad truly walked the walk of feeding the poor, sheltering the downtrodden and loving ALL of our neighbors. I believe that the work of the newly formed Diocese would have brought joy to Dad. And, it is inspiring to me to see people participating in the resurrection. Rector Martinsville, VA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Josh Thomas says: Tags January 3, 2017 at 4:36 pm “We are trying to participate in resurrection to become a new body.” (Bishop Provisional J. Scott Mayer)EVERY church and diocese should be renewing itself continuously in order to “make all things new.” Otherwise we have missed the mark and are not fulfilling the charge Jesus and His Father gave us by the grace of the Holy Spirit. I hope the Diocese of Fort Worth is as successful in court as it has been in “walking the walk” since 2008.As a member of St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church (http://www.saintgregorys.org) in San Francisco since 1998, I have seen that this self-renewal and reinvention is not only possible but critically necessary for the success and nurturance of our life together.

Du cœur financier de Londres à la cathédrale de Montréal

first_img Le doyen et recteur Bertrand Olivier. (Présence/François Gloutnay)Depuis le 8 février, la cathédrale Christ Church de Montréal a un nouveau recteur et le diocèse anglican de Montréal a un nouveau doyen. Le prêtre, dont la candidature a été acceptée au terme d’un long processus de sélection, est arrivé à Montréal deux jours plus tôt. Il n’aura pris que quelques heures pour faire ses bagages car le dimanche 4 février, il célébrait la messe pour la dernière fois à All Hallows by the Tower, la plus vieille église de Londres, une paroisse qu’il animait depuis treize ans.Celui qui remplacera John Paul Kennington, doyen et recteur depuis 2011 qui a décidé en 2016 de retourner en Angleterre pour des raisons familiales, est donc un Londonien.Un Londonien d’adoption plutôt. Car Bertrand Olivier, 55 ans, le nouveau doyen du diocèse anglican de Montréal, est né en France, à Dunkerque, a grandi dans une famille catholique et a étudié dans un collège tenu par les maristes.Anglophile dès son jeune âge, il passait ses étés en Angleterre. En 1986, le jeune professionnel s’est installé à Londres où il travaillait en relations publiques avant de créer sa propre boîte de communications. Dix ans plus tard, Bertrand Olivier était ordonné diacre de l’Église d’Angleterre, puis prêtre en 1997.Organiste dans une paroisse anglicane«À 18 ans, la religion, ce n’était pas mon intérêt le plus grand», concède le nouveau recteur, assis dans un banc de la cathédrale Christ Church de Montréal. «Et mon but n’était pas de devenir anglican. Mais ce qui m’a toujours retenu dans l’Église, c’est que je voulais jouer de l’orgue.» À Londres, il devint organiste dans une paroisse anglicane.«C’est ainsi que j’ai mis le doigt dans l’anglicanisme. Dieu a le sens de l’humour», dit-il.«J’ai trouvé dans la communauté où j’étais organiste quelque chose qui me rappelait d’où je venais. Cela a été une continuation dans mon cheminement. Mais je ne me doutais pas que j’allais recevoir un appel vocationnel. C’est arrivé dans une cathédrale au nord de Londres. J’ai reçu cet appel qui a bouleversé ma vie», dit-il, levant les yeux vers le ciel.Il entreprit des études en théologie tout en continuant son emploi, qu’il quittera sans regret. Son diocèse lui confia une première paroisse située dans un quartier défavorisé de Londres. Trois ans plus tard, il s’occupait d’une paroisse qui compte beaucoup de professionnels et de jeunes familles.Puis ce fut All Hallows by the Tower, l’église aux cotés de la tour de Londres, là où ont été décapités en 1535 Thomas More et John Fischer, tous deux canonisés 400 ans plus tard par le pape Pie XI. C’est une paroisse sans résidents, mais grouillante de monde durant la semaine. On y anime une pastorale pour les gens qui viennent travailler dans la City, le cœur financier de Londres.Un nouveau défi«Tout allait très bien à All Hallows by the Tower. J’aurais pu y demeurer jusqu’à la retraite. Mais cela ne me satisfaisait plus.»C’est dans sa personnalité, reconnaît-il. «Je n’aime pas quand la vie devient trop confortable. Dieu m’appelle à faire des choses qui me mettent au défi, qui me permettent de grandir et de faire fructifier mes talents que je mets au service de tous. Je n’aime pas trop ronronner.»Et surtout, dit-il, «je voulais réexplorer ma foi… en français».Il connaissait déjà le précédent recteur et doyen John Paul Kennington. «On a été ordonnés dans le même diocèse. Je savais qu’il était ici et que c’était un job dont il parlait avec beaucoup d’affection.» Mais Montréal n’est pas sur son radar.Jusqu’au moment où «la petite annonce est apparue sur mon écran». Deux fois plutôt qu’une, durant la même semaine. «Il faut que j’explore cette possibilité», s’est alors dit le vicaire de All Hallows by the Tower, dont la photographie est toujours affichée à la une du site paroissial.«J’avais envie d’une expérience nord-américaine et d’une Église qui n’est pas majoritaire, qui n’est pas une Église d’État, si on peut dire. Je voulais vivre un ministère d’une manière différente. Je voulais parler français mais je ne voulais pas rentrer en France et perdre mon anglais.»Au terme de deux longues conservations en ligne puis d’un weekend d’entrevue à Montréal avec le comité de sélection, la candidature du révérend Bertrand Olivier fut acceptée. «Venir à Montréal, c’est un projet qui me permet de faire une intégration d’éléments différents de ma vie et de redécouvrir ma personnalité francophone», se réjouit-il.L’histoireIl quitte toutefois une église historique – All Hallows by the Tower a été fondée en l’an 675! – pour une cathédrale, certes, mais âgée de seulement 160 ans.«Beaucoup de gens sont éblouis par les églises historiques. L’histoire, c’est important, cela attire des visiteurs», reconnaît-il. «Mais ces visiteurs, ce ne sont pas forcément des gens qui viennent redécouvrir leur foi ou qui veulent la vivre. La vraie histoire, c’est celle de Jésus, une histoire qui dure depuis plus longtemps que les églises.»«Les bâtiments sont là pour nous aider à nous rassembler, à prier», ajoute le 23e recteur de la cathédrale anglicane de Montréal. «Ce sont des tremplins. Ce qui m’intéresse, c’est de pouvoir parler de Dieu et de Jésus avec tous ceux que je rencontre. Et j’espère, de temps en temps, pouvoir transformer une vie. C’est cela qui m’importe aujourd’hui.»ŒcuménismeSon arrivée étant toute récente, le révérend Bertrand Olivier n’a pas encore rencontré des représentants d’autres Églises chrétiennes de Montréal. Mais il souhaite tisser des liens œcuméniques car il estime que «les Églises sont toujours plus fidèles à la parole du Christ lorsqu’elles travaillent ensemble».«Dans un monde très sécularisé, il faut rechercher ce qui nous unit, pas ce qui nous sépare», affirme le nouveau recteur.Le nouveau doyen indique qu’il est «marié avec a same sex partner» – une des rares expressions anglaises qu’il ait utilisé durant cette entrevue qui a duré trente minutes. «Paul – c’est le prénom de son conjoint – viendra me rejoindre mais il est toujours à Londres». Il compte bien participer au débat sur le mariage entre conjoints de même sexe dans l’Église anglicane du Canada. Le diocèse de Montréal, où il œuvrera dorénavant, permet le mariage homosexuel depuis l’an dernier, même si l’Église nationale ne doit officiellement se prononcer qu’en 2019 sur cette question qui divise les diocèses canadiens.La cérémonie d’installation du nouveau recteur et doyen aura lieu le dimanche 11 mars à la cathédrale Christ Church de Montréal. Elle débutera à 16 h.

Buzzing wristbands, 1-way lanes, temperature checks: What will returning to work…

first_img Reply I changed my mind and made some homemade hand santitizer today in my bullet blender. I used rubbing alcohol, some of my own aloe plant, and the scented oil I already had on hand, named Good Luck, figuring I could use some of that….then I strained it, and bottled it. It smells good, and has that aloe oozey feel to it, but it looked more like a juice smoothy, as it was green, but rubbed into your hands, it is clear. I don’t plan on getting into the business anyway, you know….lol LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Tenita Reid Business and technology responses Tenita Reid TAGSBusinessPandemicReopeningSocial DistancingTechnologyThe Hustle Previous articleLooking to buy a home in Apopka?

I remember back in the 70s when I was working at a plant nursery, actually it was 1976 or 1977, to be more exact, and the swine flu was going around badly, and our boss, the nursery owner’s wife, told us that if we were to keep our jobs, that we were going to have to get the vaccine for the swine flu, and that they, would pay for it, at their costs, to ensure everyone’s safety. We just listened, and then when we got together out of sight of the owner’s wife, we all said no way were we getting it, or were we going to be forced to get vaccinated. At that time, there were various reports coming out, that people were dying not only from the swine flu, but from the vaccine too. The owners changed their minds, and the subject was dropped, and that was the end of the story. I understand that they want restaurants to have disposable menus, or menus up on boards, but no menus passed around like what is normally used.

I see a big difference in him, when people want to come and talk to him, and pet him, but refrain from it, because of social distancing. He is used to be the center of attention and he calls them out by whining, wagging his rump because he doesn’t have much of a tail, and extending his paws out to “call them”……..he is truly depressed, and that is so sad. My other dog, is not that socially inclined. I understand that in the zoos that are shut down, the same thing is happening with the animals, because they miss the peoples’ attention and interaction with them causing them depression.

RSF calls for release of Indian woman journalist held by Hyderabad police

first_img March 3, 2021 Find out more News IndiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesMedia independence ImprisonedJudicial harassment Screenshot of Revathi Pogadadanda’s show on Mojo TV (photo: Mojo TV / RSF). India is ranked 140th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, two places lower than in 2018. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is concerned about the increasingly hostile climate for journalists in India and, in particular, calls for the immediate release of Revathi Pogadadanda, a TV journalist held for the past four days in Hyderabad, the capital of the southern state of Telangana, on the absurd grounds of “insulting” a guest. Clampdown In New Delhi, politics and business reporters discovered last week that the finance ministry has introduced new rules limiting access to the ministry. Contrary to previous practice, no journalist, not even accredited ones, can enter the building without an appointment. The new regulation is widely seen as a deliberate policy decision to restrict the media’s access to state-held information by banning informal contacts with ministry officials. The police arrested her in response to a complaint by one of the participants in a discussion programme she hosted in January about a recent court order allowing women to enter a Hindu temple. The guest accused Pogadadanda of insulting him when she defended women’s rights. News RSF_en The Entertainment Journalists’ Guild of India and the Press Club of India received a grotesque legal notice last weekend from lawyers representing Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut. It threatened them with a lawsuit unless they withdraw their “wrongful, immoral, unethical and illegal” support for Justin Rao, a journalist with the Press Trust of India news agency who was insulted at length by Ranaut at a recent press conference. In a video, Ranaut also refers to many of the Indian media as “enemies of the nation.” RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 to go further Without offering any further explanation, the police say she has been arrested under a 2015 law on the “prevention of atrocities” against “scheduled castes and scheduled tribes.” The police could continue to hold her provisionally for up to 14 days. In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survivalcenter_img “Taking a journalist into police custody on such illogical grounds clearly amounts to arbitrary detention,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.  “We call for Revathi Pogadadanda’s immediate release and an end to all attempts to intimidate her. Her arrest is all the more worrying for coming amid a decline in the past ten days in the situation of Indian journalists, regardless of their speciality.” IndiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesMedia independence ImprisonedJudicial harassment Receive email alerts April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on India July 16, 2019 RSF calls for release of Indian woman journalist held by Hyderabad police Help by sharing this information June 10, 2021 Find out more News Organisation A programme host with Mojo TV (which she used to run), Revathi Pogadadanda was arrested at her home on the morning of 12 July, when she covered her arrest in a series of tweets: “Cops at my doorstep! They want to arrest me without a warrant. They tell me am creating a law and order problem!” Harshad Ahir, the bureau chief of the Gujarat Mitra daily newspaper in Valsad, a city in the western state of Gujarat, was physically attacked in his home on 6 July by the former chief of a village on the edge of the city and two accomplices, who also hit his wife and 18-month-old daughter. The attack was prompted by an article a few days before about the poor execution of government-funded improvements to a lake in the village.

‘No surprises’ Budget wins approval from profession

first_img HR experts have given a cautious welcome to last week’s Budget which provided few surprises for personnel and training sectors.Chancellor Gordon Brown announced a large increase in public spending, a string of moves to encourage employee share ownership, a relaxation of working restrictions on overseas IT experts and enhancements to the New Deal. John Cridland, head of HR services at the CBI, welcomed Brown’s decision to retain save-as-you-earn share (SAYE) schemes in addition to promoting new arrangements for unsecured options. He said the decision was “a considerable victory for common sense”.There had been speculation before the Budget that such schemes might be ditched or their tax allowance cut to favour the incoming schemes.Moves to implement family-friendly policies were partially backed by the newly-formed Recruitment and Employment Confederation – the trade body for employment agencies.It argued that while the extension of paid parental leave could potentially increase the need for temporary staff, the extra requirements put on agencies, regarding the Working Families Tax Credit, would drive up costs.Training initiatives were thin on the ground although the extension of the New Deal to single parents will see them able to claim an extra £15 a week if they undertake training.The National Training Organisation’s national council welcomed the Budget, but is holding out for a major lobbying push in favour of training incentives in the Chancellor’s full spending review.www.cbi.org.uk/home.shtmlwww.nto-nc.orgwww.treasury.gov.uk By Tom Powdrill Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. ‘No surprises’ Budget wins approval from professionOn 28 Mar 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. last_img read more
