Lloyds Bank (LSE: LLOY) shares have performed well recently. Since the start of November, Lloyds’ share price has risen from 28p to 36p. That represents a gain of nearly 30%.Looking ahead, I think the shares have the potential to keep rising in 2021. Here are three reasons why.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…Global investors are buying UK sharesThe first reason I think Lloyds’ share price can continue to rise is that sentiment towards UK stocks appears to be improving dramatically. For the last few years, many large global institutional investors have avoided the UK market due to the high level of political uncertainty associated with Brexit. This has kept UK share prices depressed.However, now that there’s more clarity on Brexit, institutional money appears to be flowing back into the UK. This is illustrated by the fact that the FTSE 100 index jumped more 6% in the first week of the year compared to a 2% rise for the US’s S&P 500. If sentiment towards UK stocks continues to improve, Lloyds shares should benefit.Lloyds shares are cheapAnother reason I believe Lloyds shares have upside potential is that ‘value’ and ‘cyclical’ stocks are expected to make a big comeback this year. For years, these types of stocks have underperformed ‘growth’ stocks. However, with the global economy in the early stages of a recovery post-Covid, many experts expect value and cyclical stocks to outperform growth stocks in 2021.Lloyds is certainly a cyclical stock. Its earnings fluctuate depending on economic conditions. It’s also very much a value stock. Right now, its forward-looking P/E ratio is just 11.If investors continue to direct money into these areas of the stock market, Lloyds’ share price could continue to rise.Lloyds shares could pay dividends in 2021Finally, I expect Lloyds, and the other UK banks, to resume paying dividends in 2021 as the Bank of England recently lifted its ban on bank dividends. A dividend will increase the appeal of owning the shares and this may push the share price up.Currently, City analysts expect a dividend payout of 1.63p per share for FY2021. At Lloyds’ current share price, that equates to a yield of about 4.4%. That’s certainly an attractive yield in the current low-interest-rate environment.Investors should note, however, that dividend forecasts can be quite inaccurate at times. So, this forecast for Lloyds’ dividend should be taken with a pinch of salt.Is Lloyds a good stock to buy?I will point out that while I believe Lloyds’ share price has upside in the near term, I actually don’t see the stock as a great long-term buy. There are two key reasons why.Firstly, interest rates are likely to remain low for a while. This will impact banks’ ability to generate profits.Secondly, financial technology (FinTech) companies and digital banks are advancing at a spectacular rate right now and aggressively targeting banking market share. I expect FinTech to create a lot of challenges for traditional banks such as Lloyds in the years ahead.I own Lloyds shares and I’m going to hold onto them for now. However, at some stage in the not-too-distant future, I’ll be looking to sell them. My plan is to switch the money into a stock with more attractive long-term growth prospects.

Time to regroup: England need an improved performance against Wales The England pack lacked balanceEngland have been renowned for their strength in depth but the eight men they chose to give their backs a platform didn’t work, despite Eddie Jones’ protestations that he’d got his selection right. Undoubtedly, injuries have weakened England from the starting eight out in Australia but there will be raised eyebrows if the same pack starts for Wales. For all the pre-match hyperbole about Maro Itoje’s skillset to play at six, the absence of the durable, dependable Chris Robshaw that was keenly felt.Lack of balance: Injuries meant changes were made to a pack that struggledWith no experience at blindside at Test level, Itoje looked far more comfortable in the engine room. Another square peg in a round hole was Tom Wood, who is better suited to No 6, giving away too many penalties. The other big miss, quite literally, was Billy and Mako Vunipola, who give England all-important gain-line domination, something they could not re-create. We’ll come onto the next amigo, James Haskell, later…France regain their va-va-voomSo long derided in the Six Nations – they’ve finished in the bottom half for the past five years – Les Bleus finally resembled a side with the huge player-base and infrastructure of a Northern Hemisphere giant. In short, they punched their weight, with Louis Picamoles at the forefront of their attack, repeatedly punching holes in England’s defence as he targeted the smaller Ben Youngs and George Ford.Tempo: Scrum-half Baptiste Serin helped France put England on the back footEddie Jones was fulsome in his praise for Guy Noves’ men, and in the backs, Baptiste Serin dictated the tempo, allowing Virimi Vakatawa, Scott Spedding and Noa Nakaitaci to hit angles, roam and give the side width. France comfortably ran up more metres than England – 586 to 455 and for those a little longer in the tooth, who get misty eyed when talking about flair players Thomas Castaignede, Serge Blanco, Philippe Sella, it made the heart flutter to see them playing an expansive, offloading game. Encore, Guy…The Bench FactorEddie Jones impressed on the waiting media, prior to the game, that England’s bench was the strongest in the world, and while the All Blacks may contest that assertion, the cavalry did their job effectively. Jamie George, introduced first, upped the ante from Dylan Hartley, who was clearly lacking game-time after his disciplinary woes. We’ve become accustomed to Eddie Jones’ quip-laden press conferences – a godsend for journalists – but his sparky repartee also takes the heat of his players. Firstly, he took full responsibility for England’s deficiencies – sluggish start, lack of go-forward and poor lineout – and then backed his players – in public, at least. Maro Itoje, who had an uncomfortable time at 6 was described as ‘fantastic’.Time to think: Eddie Jones accepts there is work to be done ahead of WalesHe was also quick to push the the agenda forward to Wales, while he bought time to navigate his way through the trickier questions over his side’s lacklustre performance. Jones knows he can say what he wants, as long as England keep winning. He’s now 14 from 14 and he knows a loss is coming, “you can win by a hundred points one day, and get out to a duck the next day”. Whatever happens in Cardiff, it’s been a remarkable old run. Making a difference: James Haskell and the bench made a big differenceThe introduction of James Haskell whipped up the Twickenham crowd, and his muscularity and effervescence lifted the team. At half-back Danny Care added zip and a sense of urgency with England needing points, while Ben Te’o gave the midfield the punch it’s been lacking since Manu Tuilagi’s untimely absence and Jack Nowell careered round with his customary zeal, to leave England finishing like a train. Expect several replacements to be pushing for starting places for Cardiff.Farrell assumes centre stageOwen Farrell was seen as one-dimensional early in his career; a controller and kicker, but not a runner, yet in the last 18 months he has matured into the full-package. One of the most technically gifted kickers in the world game, he has a varied passing game, timing his looping pass to Elliot Daly to nearly put him in the corner and deep into the second-half, standing up to the rampaging Louis Picamoles with a thunderous tackle that drew hand-shakes from his team-mates.Full-package: Owen Farrell has added to his game and is nearing the complete playerWhen Te’o was introduced, it was George Ford was hooked and Farrell moved inside to 10. Jones has outlined is leadership qualities and he was publicly backing Farrell to guide England home. It would surprise no one if Farrell became England’s next captain. The question is now not if, but when.Eddie Jones takes responsibility and deflects heat away from his players England puffed and panted over the line to register a record 15th win, with Eddie Jones saying it was an ugly win, so is there work to be done ahead of Wales?

Press Release Service Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Belleville, IL Featured Events [Episcopal News Service] Editor’s note: This piece originally appeared in the Huffington Post’s religion section.Pulling into the filling station on my way to Newtown in the early afternoon last Friday, the woman at the gas pump next to me asked: “How do we make sense of all of this?” She was a young mother, with tears in her eyes, on her way to our local elementary school to collect her children. She noticed my clerical collar and felt free to engage me about the horror and tragedy at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.My response to the young mother’s question was that there was no way we could make sense of what had happened. No explanation or rationale could assuage our shock, pain and grief. As a religious leader, I knew that my job was not to try and make sense of what had happened. Rather my job was to be there, simply be there, with those who had lost loved ones in the terrible rampage.And that’s exactly what the Church did last Friday — and continues to do. The rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Newtown, the Rev. Kathie Adam-Shepherd, upon learning of the first shots, rushed to the Sandy Hook Elementary School. All day Friday she stayed at the Fire House up the street from the school. Kathie attended the parents who waited for the news — the news that no parent should ever hear — that they would never again see their little ones alive. Waiting, praying and caring for the shocked and bereaved is what she did. It’s what the Church does. And those of us who gathered at Trinity Church, Newtown, Friday evening were held in “the peace of God that passes all understanding” as St. Paul writes to the Philippians. That’s all we had. And that was a lot.The second question everyone seems to be asking me as a religious leader is: “How could God let this happen?” For me, God is not some distant puppeteer controlling the strings of our lives and actions. No, God is a loving creator who continually offers us the gift of life and love. Our creator God is always with us, accompanying us in the joys and the sorrows of our daily lives. In this season of Advent, the season of waiting and preparing for Christmas, we Christians look forward to the coming of Emmanuel. Emmanuel means God-with-us.And this God who is with us, the Christ-child, is not a God insulated from the hurt and pain of the world. No, Emmanuel is a God who knows suffering; who was born to a homeless teenage mom and whose birth was attended by barn animals and marginalized sheep tenders. This God-with-us and his parents would then become refugees in Egypt to escape the slaughter of other innocent children at the hand of King Herod. And the same God-with-us, Jesus, would die a torturous death upon the cross as a religious and political revolutionary. We Christians, however, hold onto the truth that three days later Jesus rose from the dead. When confronted with the question “How could God let this happen?” we can proclaim that God is a God who is with us, who suffers with us, and who embodies the promise and reality of new life in the face of death.The final question is the same inquiry asked of John the Baptist, heard yesterday in the Gospel lesson for the Third Sunday in Advent. As he preached the need for repentance, those who came to John asked: “What then should we do?” What then, what now, should we do?It is not lost on me that my home state of Connecticut has historically been one of the largest producers of firearms in the world. It was in Connecticut where the first “automatic weapons” of the 19th century were manufactured. The revolver was invented by Samuel Colt in Hartford in 1836 and the repeating rifle by Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson in Norwich in the early 1850s. One of our Episcopal Churches, a Colt family legacy, even has revolvers and rifles carved into the brownstone arches adorning the entryways.It’s time that we religious leaders in Connecticut and beyond stand up, speak out and work with our political and civic leaders for significant change in our nation’s gun laws. The Children’s Defense Fund has documented that in the years 2008-2009, 5,790 children and teens were killed in the United States from gunfire. How much longer should this carnage continue? Our country is crying out for common sense gun legislation, including reinstituting the ban on assault weapons. The time is right. The time is now. “What then should we do?” We should dedicate ourselves to sensible gun control legislation so that we never again witness the horror and tragedy of the slaughter of the innocents inflicted on Newtown last week.The Rt.

A holistic approach is indeed needed. However, some of Mr. Maynard’s assumptions need to be addressed: 1) This shooter had no signs that he was a danger to himself or another. So even if we had the ideal approach to “mental health”, this shooter would have gone unnoticed. Furthermore, to say that the shooter was “mentally ill” is an assumption without medical basis at the moment and perhaps never. And even if he were, without an explicit act or statement of intent, current law would make intervention nearly impossible. 2) All current gun regulations are only those vetted by the NRA and the gun lobby, which has a vested economic interest in keeping firearms as deregulated as possible. Therefore such laws as do exist are so weak as to be ineffectual. 3) If guns and more guns made us safe, we ought to be the safest of all people. 4) That not all such acts can be prohibited does not absolve us from taking those actions that minimize the possibility of future acts. 5) Even the current Supreme Court in its most recent ruling has stated that “the right to bear arms” is not absolute and that states do have the authority to regulate firearms. We as a nation must no longer permit the NRA and “big gun business” set the agenda for our discourse on this subject, It’s long past time that our political leaders have the moral courage to put the safety of our weakest and most vulnerable above profit and the gun idolatry.

The time is, indeed, right and, indeed, now.

However, I do not believe that legislation of gun control would have prevented this or any other tragedy when a mentally ill person irrationally sets out to commit a horrific act. I agreet my more with Mr. Duckworth in that mental health issues, violent and repulsive media etc. deserve the bulk of our resources. Thank you again for your message. Fr. Ken Wissler says: December 19, 2012 at 1:56 pm Thank you for the beautiful and moving response to the question of “how do we respond to this?”. However, I believe what we should do is address the cause of the tragedy and work to find solutions. Mental health issues must be addressed so that those in need can find resources for treatment. Violent and dehumanizing videos and movies must be opposed by the Church. More of our resources should be focused on helping families raise their children to be healthy and loving adults. By Ian T. DouglasPosted Dec 18, 2012 Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest December 18, 2012 at 4:33 pm Please give Ian’s message the widest distribution possible as he speaks clearly to the issues surrounding this tragedy. He was on the front lines of this horror as we are no longer bystanders but a people called to action now. Rector Bath, NC December 28, 2012 at 9:36 pm I agree with Kelly Taylor. Ian Douglas’ editorial, while moving, completely misses the point. Could this nation do more to ensure firearms don’t fall into the worng hands? Of course. No rational person would argue otherwise. But gun control isn’t the answer. If it were then the thousands upon thousands of laws already on the books would have stopped the violence. In almost every mass shooting the perpetrator has been mentally unstable. This nation has refused to treat seriously those who are a danger to themselves and others, year after year taking money from mental health programs. Regardless of any “assault weapons” ban we will continue to see these horrendous acts played out until that funding is restored and the mentally ill are treated inthe manner they should be.

Zwei+plus is an innovative new concept for Intergenerational Living. It is subsidized social housing whose units are let in pairs to two cooperating, intergenerational households. These tandem households can be family or just plain friends, but they must move in concurrently and commit themselves to mutual cooperation and support. In a time where independent living is treasured yet social support networks are needed, zwei+plus provides tandem households with the chance to live together in the same estate: they’re paired yet spatially separate units are close enough for interaction and assistance, yet far enough apart, that privacy is preserved.Save this picture!© Hertha Hurnaus, Leonahard HizensauerSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Hertha Hurnaus, Leonahard HizensauerThe architecture is the framework for an ambitious social program. Four L-Shaped buildings form green courtyards in which residents can gather. Collectively programmed spaces are grouped around the ground floor: a community café open to the surrounding neighborhood, a laundromat with a playroom for kids, a kindergarten, and an assisted living center for senior citizens.Save this picture!© Hertha Hurnaus, Leonahard HizensauerA cooperating partnership allows seniors to assist with the preschoolers, bringing these generations together in a particularly constructive way.

News May 13, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies News NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Help by sharing this information MexicoAmericas News Follow the news on Mexico August 14, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Law protecting journalists goes into effect in Mexico City Many journalists rightly fear both for their lives and the future of their profession after the multiple murders of photojournalist Ruben Espinosa, activist Nadia Vera and three other women in a Mexico City apartment two weeks ago.Called the Ley de Protección a Personas Defensoras de Derechos Humanos y Periodistas del Distrito Federal, the law was promulgated by Mexico City mayor Miguel Angel Mancera on 10 August and is the fruit of several years of consultation and drafting involving civil society representatives, human rights groups, journalists and federal district employees.It recognizes the promotion and defence of journalism and human rights as activities that are in the public interest, it guarantees the physical, psychological, moral and economic integrity of journalists when they are in danger, and it guarantees the same rights and protection to the families and assistants of endangered journalists.It also guarantees the same rights and protection for journalists who flee to Mexico City from other regions where they have been the targets of violence or threats. The creation of an emergency fund from which disbursements can be made within 24 hours is also envisaged – above all to provide journalists with food and accommodation in emergencies.“We welcome this law’s promulgation and we pay tribute to the political will to reinforce the protection of journalists in the federal district,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“We hope this law will have a snowball effect and will serve as an example for other Mexican states where this type of protection is either non-existent or ineffective. At the same time, we hope it will not just be used for political effect and we urge the authorities to allocate the resources needed for it to function properly.”After several last-minute changes were made to the law, the project’s civil society participants continue to be concerned about the law’s proper implementation and have made several requests, which Reporters Without Borders supports.They include:- A complete commitment by the various levels of the federal district government to achieving the law’s goals, and the possibility of adjusting or modifying the law, within its overall objectives, in regular consultation with civil society.- Equal representation for civil society members and federal district government members on the committee that oversees the law’s implementation.- Allocation of sufficient resources and personnel that is qualified and aware of journalistic issues for the implementation of the protection.- A guarantee that the system of protection will operate in a fully autonomous manner, with its own assets, and the emergency fund will quickly be made available.According to the tally kept by Reporters Without Borders, a total of 89 journalists have been murdered since 2000 in Mexico, which is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in the press freedom index that Reporters Without Borders published in February. RSF_en Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders hails a new law protecting human rights defenders and journalists now in effect in Mexico’s federal district (Mexico City) but will monitor its implementation closely. It could set an example for Mexico’s other states at a time when working as a journalist is extremely dangerous.

Currently patients are transferred to the radiology department for CT imaging.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The CT scanner will be mounted on a track which will allow it to move between rooms in the ED, allowing for imaging of the most seriously ill patients without the requirement to transfer to the radiology department.The new department will have two Digital X-Ray rooms with the most up-to-date equipment, allowing for easier imaging of trauma patients who cannot be moved until their X-rays have been cleared. One of these X-ray rooms will also include a digital OPG X-ray machine for dental work and the lower face.Four additional radiographers are being recruited to support radiology service delivery in the new department.Up to 70% of clinical diagnoses are dependent on laboratory test results and while the Department of Pathology already provides a 24-hour service to the existing ED, a number of improvements are planned for the new department.The €18 million development is due to be handed over by the contractors at the end of this month, it will then take a number of weeks to commission the new equipment, to induct staff on the new environment and to train staff on the state-of-the-art equipment.UL Hospitals Group CEO Colette Cowan commented: “ New diagnostic equipment within the department will help minimise delays for patients and spare them the inconvenience of trips to and from the radiology department. It does not mean the new ED is suddenly a referral centre for scans and other diagnostics tests; rather the equipment is for the diagnosis of patients appropriately in the Emergency Department. The criteria and referral pathways around who needs to go to the ED, who needs to go to their Injury Unit and who needs to go to their GP remain unchanged.”Dr Gareth Quin, Consultant in Emergency Medicine, UHL, said: “There is no doubt that rapid access to high-quality diagnostic imaging and other tests is key to efficient and effective emergency care. This requirement has informed every stage of the design and construction of our new Emergency Department. The most significant diagnostic innovation in the new ED is the mobile CT scanner in the Resuscitation area. This will allow us to bring the scanner to the sickest and most seriously injured patients rather than having to bring the patient to the scanner. This state-of-the-art scanner is the first of its kind in Ireland and is just one of the ways in which patients attending our new department will receive a much enhanced service.” UL Hospitals Group & Public Health Mid-West: COVID-19 Precautions ‘Imperative’ As Hospital Services Prioritised for the Most Unwell Patients in Wake of Cyber Attack Twitter NewsHealthUpgrades at UHL will mean shorter waiting timesBy Editor – March 22, 2017 1161 Advertisement WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Infection Control Team in place at University Hospital Limerick following “outbreak” of Covid-19 Facebook “There is extreme overcrowding in UHL this morning” – UHL TAGSColette CowanUHL Print Previous articleThe Food Series comes to Workbench LimerickNext articleAnd the beat goes on: Celebrating New Spotlight Showband Show Editor Cancellations at UHL and Ennis Hospital Linkedin
