Several generic drugmakers launched cheap copies of Nexium in Germany two months ago and AstraZeneca said in October a generic had also gone on sale in Spain.Nexium was AstraZeneca’s biggest-selling drug in 2009, with global sales of $5bn, although its importance is declining. It was eclipsed this year by cholesterol fighter Crestor, which is now AstraZeneca’s most important product.The European Commission said in October that it planned to review drug patent settlements struck by pharmaceutical firms to delay cheaper generics going to market, as part of its crackdown on illegal deals in the sector.

See all posts by Karl Loomes Investing for income has long been one of my main aims for my own portfolio. Dividend shares do not mean there is no growth potential of course, but income is the prime concern. 2020 has generally been a bad year for dividends, but things are starting to look up.With Covid-19 vaccines beginning to get rolled out to the most vulnerable, and the UK government lifting its ban on banking dividends, now might be the perfect time to consider investing for income.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…My criteria when investing for incomePersonally, I have a few rules that I always consider when investing for income. These rules are never more important than in uncertain times. The first of these is safety for my initial capital.This is easier said than done, of course, but when investing for income I do not want to have to worry about losing a large chunk of my cash. To mitigate the risks, I usually look at larger, blue chip stocks. The FTSE 100 is a natural starting point.I also want companies that have strong, well-established brands. I want firms with solid financials, generally meaning year-on-year revenue and profit growth over about five years.As with most share investing, my time frame for holding the stock, even for income, is at least five years. This helps mitigate the natural price fluctuations and allows a company’s true strength to come through.Yield and growthNaturally when investing for income, the dividend yield is a key component, but the number alone is not enough. As dividends are paid on a pence per share basis, yield can fluctuate a lot. This means there can be great opportunities when a share price is low, to ‘lock in’ a higher yield than normal.These kinds of share price drops happen all the time. The trick is knowing when they are fundamental, and when it is merely expectations or fear running away with sellers. Of course the opposite is also true. A good dividend share may not be worth picking up when its share price is high, because the yield will not be worth it.Another of my main criteria is dividend growth. As well as seeing profits and revenue climbing annually, when investing for income I want to see a company consistently increase its dividend payout each year. Preferably this should be above 2%, to make up for inflation.Tied in with this, I look for consistent dividend payments. This means a steady stream of dividends over the last five years. 2020 has put a dint in this pattern for many stocks now, so in future I will take this year into consideration. Generally though, those companies that have paid regularly and well in the past should do so in the future. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Costa Rican church takes step toward welcoming LGBTQ community

first_img Associate Rector Columbus, GA [Episcopal News Service] In its first step toward welcoming the LGBTQ community, the Episcopal Church of Costa Rica March 4 partnered with other religious and human rights organizations to sponsor a forum on faith, the Bible, sexual orientation and gender identity.The Episcopal Church of Costa Rica joined the Lutheran Church of Costa Rica, the U.S.-based Human Rights Campaign, and two local groups – the Diversity Movement and the Student Federation of the University of Costa Rica – for the event at the University of Costa Rica that included a screening of “Before God, We Are All Family,” a short film produced by HRC, followed by a panel discussion.Costa Rica Bishop Héctor Monterroso, in an e-mail to ENS regarding the church’s participation in the event, said that openness is part of the identity of the Episcopal Church, and that includes supporting initiatives that respect human rights, efforts toward equality and accompanying people of faith in their struggle.“In Costa Rica many people are talking about and campaigning in favor of human rights, particularly regarding the LGBT community,” he said. “At the same time, [the] country’s churches also are talking about LGBT rights, some positively and some not so positively.”Richard Weinberg, who helped to organize the event, is on leave from his job as director of communications at Washington National Cathedral and has spent the last two months as a volunteer missionary serving the Episcopal Church of Costa Rica.“The help of Richard and his own testimony coincided with an important moment in Costa Rican society and in the Episcopal Church,” said Monterroso, adding that Lent offers an appropriate time for the church to “reflect, listen and learn.”The church’s participation in the forum marked its first public effort toward the full inclusion of LGBT people.“The first step is to promote dialogue, learn, listen and declare what we always have said. We want to heal the wounds that many LGBT people have with religion. We should understand that they are God’s creation and God does not err. We must accept them as God created them,” said Monterroso in a press release announcing the event.The film “Before God, We Are All Family,” details the lives of five Latino religious families who have lived with the pain of the church’s repressive teachings on sexuality and gender identity. Filmed in the United States and Puerto Rico, the film explores the experiences of LGBT people of profound faith who say they have no place in their churches of origin, and their parents and families who at times have felt they’ve had to choose between their religion and their loved ones.“I believe that this forum, this space for dialogue between the Episcopal Church and the LGBT community, will help us discover how we can work together and how both communities can contribute to the building of the reign of God,” said Monterroso, in the e-mail. “What I would like to see clearly is that the members of the Episcopal Church eliminate all forms of discrimination toward LGBT people and whatever other kind of discrimination.”As an American serving as a volunteer missionary in Costa Rica, Weinberg has remained conscious of his outsider status, but through cross-cultural exchanges, friendships and social media, he became acquainted with the local activist scene.And although he didn’t arrive in Costa Rica with an agenda toward advancing LGBT rights, as he and Monterroso became better acquainted the issue surfaced naturally, he said. (Weinberg shared his experience in a first-person piece published by the Huffington Post.)Washington National Cathedral and the Very Rev. Gary Hall, its dean, have long been involved in the struggle for LGBTQ full inclusion, both in the church and society. Weinberg co-chairs the cathedral’s LGBT ministry group.“Bishop Héctor knew about my work, but wasn’t sure if I was interested in getting involved,” said Weinberg, adding also that he was curious about the bishop’s and the church’s position, especially since the Anglican-Episcopal Church of El Salvador, a church in a country less developed than Costa Rica, has embraced the LGBT community.Across Central and Latin America, LGBT people continue to suffer discrimination and violence, often with impunity.  And despite the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruling that discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity violates international law, legal protections vary widely across the region.The Anglican-Episcopal Church of El Salvador is the only Episcopal church in the region to have an official LGBT ministry, which it started in 2009. The Episcopal Church is present in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Guatemala and El Salvador, and all have formed a covenant with the U.S.-based Episcopal Church.The hope in Costa Rica, said Weinberg, is that those in the local LGBT community who might feel called may step forward and the leaders might emerge.“We’re planting a seed and hope that something grows,” said Weinberg. — Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.  Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Director of Music Morristown, NJ Human Sexuality, Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Shreveport, LA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Bath, NC Featured Jobs & Calls Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Smithfield, NC Costa Rican church takes step toward welcoming LGBTQ community Episcopal diocese co-sponsors film, human rights panel An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Albany, NY Submit a Press Release An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Course Director Jerusalem, Israel TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Latin America, By Lynette WilsonPosted Mar 5, 2014 Featured Events Submit a Job Listing Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Curate Diocese of Nebraska This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Press Release Service Rector Washington, DC Youth Minister Lorton, VA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Province IX Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Anglican Communion, Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Tags Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Anglican Communion Standing Committee bulletin – Days 2 to 4

first_img Posted Dec 2, 2014 Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Collierville, TN Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Tags Anglican Communion Standing Committee bulletin – Days 2 to 4 Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Communion Standing Committee met in London from Nov. 29-Dec. 2. The following is a bulletin issued for days 2 to 4 of the meeting. The bulletin for day 1 is available here.Bible in the Life of the Church projectStephen Lyon began the day by sharing with the Standing Committee that the Bible in the Life of the Church’s project stage will come to an end in 2016. He hoped the project would leave the Anglican Communion a legacy of “a toolkit to do the Bible better.”“As Anglicans and Episcopalians we’ve no doubt that the Bible has a central part of our life,” he said, “but whether people coming to our churches would know that is another thing.”In answer to the question: “How do we make [the toolkit] equally well produced and easily accessible?” Lyon is proposing four resources:• A booklet showing where all the resources can be found;• A book containing different pathways for deeper engagement with scripture;• A longer book outlining the resources and providing links/a memory stick where people can access information sheets and other resources; and• A transcript of email conversation on the Bible from leading thinkers around the Anglican Communion.“What we’ve been trying to do is resource those whose ministry is one of preaching and teaching,” said Lyon. “To try and offer to them resources that enable them to encourage those within our congregations into a deeper engagement with Scripture.”Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi of Burundi shared his concern that such material might not consider the needs of Anglicans in the majority world. Lyon said he had tried to do that, but admitted more could be done in this regard. He appealed for more input from non-western provinces.ACC-16Lyon then shared the preliminary plans for the 16th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council, the Anglican Communion’s main policy-making body, which is scheduled to meet in 2016. He stressed that there had been some thinking around how to ensure every participant, regardless of their background, had a common understanding of what the Anglican Consultative Council meeting is and is for.This prompted a discussion among the Standing Committee about the future of the Instruments of Communion (the ACC, the Lambeth Conference of bishops, and the Primates Meeting) in relation to other Anglican Communion gatherings that might be more relational, conversational and perhaps missional in nature.Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori mentioned that at a recent meeting between the Episcopal Church and several senior bishops from across Africa [read more], there had been “significant energy” behind the idea of an Anglican ‘gathering’ of some kind, above and beyond the Instruments of Communion.Ntahoturi said, “The Toronto Congress created the language of mutual responsibility and interdependence. Now there’s a feeling that again we need that [another chance to meet in this kind of way]. A wider gathering of Christians — Anglicans and Episcopalians, lay and ordained — coming together to see and discuss and share and build relationships.“The Instruments of Communion, they have a 10-year schedule or three-year schedule. In the present world of instant communications, that’s becoming a long time. What happens between those meetings? If communion is really communion then we want something new [over and above the Instruments].”ACC Chair Bishop James Tengatenga said that it might be that ACC-16 could be a Kairos moment for the Anglican Communion for going forward in this regard. “The idea of a ‘gathering’ has been hanging over our head for a long time. Each generation has been crying for one and we’ve never quite birthed it.”Knowledge and Information ManagementInformation and Knowledge Manager Stephanie Taylor shared with the Standing Committee her plans for an area of work that is very new for the Anglican Communion Office.She explained that effective knowledge and information management had not only a theological mandate, but also one from the Instruments themselves.“Right from its very inception, information and communication has been at the heart of the mandate of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC). The functions of the ACC as outlined in resolution 69 of the 1968 Lambeth Conference instruct the mandate to share information; to advise; to develop; to encourage; to help in the dissemination of information; to keep in review; to promote enquiry and research. Information and knowledge are at the very heart of these functions. They are the foundation and building blocks.”Taylor said her vision was: “To harness the power of the Communion’s information and knowledge, to serve the Communion and work together to the Glory of God.” Key objectives included:Harnessing and exploiting the ACO’s knowledge and informationFostering a culture of information and knowledge sharing;Introducing and establishing best practice information management, records management, and knowledge manage policies, processes, procedures, tools and techniques;Improving the quality of the data on the Anglican Communion Office’s database, working in partnership with Provincial Secretaries, and promoting its use among ACO colleagues; andBuilding relationships with professionals in similar and related professional disciplines particularly those working for Christian organizations.She explained that the ACO had not previously had “a resourced, professionally qualified information professional dedicated to the guardianship and stewardship of its information and knowledge.” Therefore, in her first year, she is looking to draw up and implement some basic policies, processes, and procedures to ensure effective records management. Taylor will also focus on the ACO’s archives to ensure their preservation, and work with office staff members to embed knowledge management practices and techniques which, she said, will have enormous potential to facilitate their work.The Standing Committee then went into closed session.___________________2014 Standing Committee Meeting 2 – Day 3Unity, Faith and OrderDirector for Unity, Faith and Order the Rev. Alyson Barnett-Cowan said in her report on the work of Inter-Anglican Standing Commission on Unity Faith and Order (IASCUFO) that she is, among other things, currently mapping how the churches make decisions. “What power do the Primates have? What power does the General Synod have?” said Barnett-Cowan. “Not every province makes decisions in the same way.” She explained the purpose was to produce a resource to help provinces better understand why member churches made decisions in the way they did.Barnett-Cowan told the Standing Committee that IASCUFO was waiting for to hear from all provinces about their decisions regarding the Anglican Communion Covenant. She expected the Covenant to be an agenda item at ACC-16 in Lusaka, Zambia in 2016.She went on to explain that IASCUFO’s Ecumenical Working Group was considering questions from the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia and the Church of Ceylon regarding the recognition of ministries of non-Anglican Churches. She added that themes adopted by the Lutheran World Federation for marking the commemoration of 1517 — the start of the Protestant reformation — will be recommended for study by Anglicans. These include: Salvation not for sale; Human beings not for sale; Creation not for sale.The Anglican Orthodox dialogue working group has been preparing a draft document on theological anthropology – what it means to be human theologically. This will be reviewed by IASCUFO alongside its own work on the subject.The Standing Committee then went into closed session.____________2014 Standing Committee Meeting 2 – Day 4The Standing Committee met in closed sessions today. Following the end of the meeting, Chair Tengatenga said the committee expected a job description for the secretary general of the Anglican Communion to be issued in the next few weeks.
