Icap’s caution sees investors become wary

Posted on

first_img INTERDEALER broker Icap, run by former Tory party treasurer Michael Spencer, said yesterday that the pace of growth in its post-trade unit, an area in which it has invested heavily in recent years, was not yet meeting its medium-term targets.Despite confirmation that it still expects to hit its profit guidance of £333-357m for the year ending 31 March, the news saw ICAP shares slip 0.6 per cent to 545p.Analyst at Panmure Gordon, Vivek Raja said: “My reading is that management are uncomfortable with analysts who have upgraded beyond their guidance.“Icap’s statements are typically positive. There’s more of an element of caution than investors are used to seeing.”The largest interdealer money broker in the world also raised concern among investors over its post-trade business, one of the more highly rated earnings streams within the group, after it said the unit was not yet meeting its medium-term targets.Icap, which has invested heavily in its post-trade business in recent years, said: “Post-trade risk and information continues to grow revenues, but the pace of growth is below what we expect in the medium term.”Analysts at Shore Capital said: “(This) may be viewed as a disappointment given the importance attached to post trade services in the group’s strategy”.

Episcopal Church of Cuba adopts three-year strategic plan

first_img Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 The Episcopal Church of Cuba held its annual General Synod in Havana Feb. 21-23. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Havana, Cuba] The Episcopal Church of Cuba has a clear vision moving into its next triennium: to be a church united in diversity, celebration, evangelism, teaching, serving and sharing the love of God.Arriving at that vision has been “a very rich experience,” yet at times “somewhat difficult,” said Bishop Griselda Delgado Del Carpio, during a post-General Synod interview with Episcopal News Service on Feb. 23.For its 2014-16 strategic plan, the church finds inspiration from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, specifically Chapter 4, Verses 15-16: “But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love.”At the close of the last three years, Delgado’s first full triennium serving as bishop, a clearer vision for the church began to develop, with evangelism taking center stage in the church’s mission, she said.“From there we could visualize a concrete plan that we have to work from,” she added.The three-year plan’s objectives include:strengthening the continued growth of the pastoral ministry of laity and clergy;increasing financial sustainability through stewardship, project management and the exploration of other country sources;providing through its own leadership capacity the space for biblical and theological reflection at the local and diocesan level focused on values, ethics, history of the church, and spirituality and family;reinforcing the visibility of the work of the church, both inside and outside;strengthening management capacity and organization, including planning, control, evaluation and systematization;promoting pastoral programs and accompaniment for marginalized people and groups, those who are vulnerable, the aged, those who suffer from addictions or are HIV positive; andachieving better communication across the church.“Thanks to God we are involving young people in the church,” she said. “We believe that they are not only the future, but the present.” Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Tags Anglican Communion Associate Rector Columbus, GA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit an Event Listing March 1, 2014 at 11:51 am I agree with you, Father Al.La Obispa Griselda is a gift from God to Cuba and a blessing for us in America as she diligently but gracefully works to bring our peoples together into the dialogue of Christ’s Love.

The church in Cuba’s three-year plan prioritizes the formation of children. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceIt’s for that reason, she added, that the plan focuses on the formation of young people, children and adolescents and also those on the path toward priesthood who will inherit big responsibilities.“I continue to be amazed at the tenacity and missional heart of the Episcopal Church in Cuba,” said Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori in an e-mail to ENS.“They are a great example to Episcopal Church congregations of what Asset Based Community Development looks like — valuing all the gifts God has provided in this place, listening to the needs of the wider community, and collaborating for mission and ministry.  Bishop Griselda is leading transformative ministry in Cuba — I urge you to go and see if you are able, develop a diocesan or parish partnership, and learn more.”The Episcopal Church of Cuba’s annual General Synod, held Feb. 21-23 at Trinity Cathedral in Havana, was attended by Episcopalians and Anglicans from the United States and Canada, including Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada.During his introduction to convention, Hiltz described Delgado as “a great ambassador for Cuba, putting the church in Cuba on the map of the Anglican Communion in very important ways.”Delgado was installed in November 2010, replacing Bishop Miguel Tamayo of the Anglican Church of Uruguay who served the church as an interim bishop for six years, splitting his time between Montevideo and Havana.Dominican Republic Bishop Julio César Holguín preached during the closing Eucharist of the Episcopal Church of Cuba’s General Assembly. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceFollowing Delgado’s election, Dominican Republic Bishop Julio César Holguín became her mentor for three years, a relationship that continues informally today. Holguín led a small delegation, including members of companion dioceses, to Cuba Feb. 18-25, to attend General Synod.The Diocese of the Dominican Republic has some 15 U.S.-based companion diocese relationships, and itself serves as a companion to the church in Cuba, though in a more informal, “sentimental” way as an expression of solidarity, said Holguín.But the relationship also has taken on a practical nature, for example in 2009 the Episcopal Church’s General Convention initiated $23 million in budget cuts necessitated by declining revenue, which meant a decrease in grants to Province IX dioceses and the church’s covenant partners, including Cuba.Following that action, the clergy in the Diocese of the Dominican Republic committed to giving 1 percent of their salaries, which amounts to about $3,000 total, to be shared by the clergy in Cuba, said Holguín, adding that the monthly salary for clergy might be $7 or $8.“We were in a better position than anyone to support the church in Cuba,” he said.The Episcopal Church’s triennial budget allocates $106,000 to the church in Cuba.Dominican Republic Bishop Julio César Holguín and Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, talk during lunchtime at the Episcopal Church of Cuba’s General Synod. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceLike the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, the Anglican Church of Canada has had a longstanding relationship with the Episcopal Church of Cuba, said Hiltz.The Episcopal Church of Cuba is an autonomous diocese of the Anglican Communion under the authority of the Metropolitan Council of Cuba. The council is chaired by Hiltz and includes Jefferts Schori and Archbishop of the West Indies John Holder. The council has overseen the church in Cuba since it separated from the U.S.-based Episcopal Church in 1967.In the six- and-a half years that Hiltz has served on the council, he said, despite the continued hardship, he’s sees a lot of hope in the church, as well as a push toward leadership development. Having a full-time bishop has helped, he added.“The church here in Cuba is not an institution, but a movement, a gospel movement,” said Hiltz.The Sunday prior to the convention, Feb. 16, Hiltz and other visitors from the Anglican Church of Canada visited a house church in Luyano, a poor section of Havana, where the packed congregation celebrated Valentine’s Day by exchanging practical gifts of soap and toothpaste, two necessities that can be difficult to come by in Cuba.Following the Eucharist, the congregation led the group to the building site of their church, which after being destroyed 30 years earlier by a hurricane is being readied for an Easter Sunday consecration.Rather than just build a place of worship, however, Hiltz said, the temple includes medical and elder-care clinics and a community center.“You get the sense that the church is really in the community, there for the sake of the community,” said Hiltz. “Seeing it on the ground enriches my understanding and helps the way we uphold them in prayer.”In offering prayer, context makes a difference, he added.Cuba Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio and Diocese of Niagara Bishop Michael Bird talk following a business session. Cuba and Niagara recently renewed their companion diocese relationship. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceIn the Anglican Church of Canada’s Diocese of Niagara, the 91 parishes pray weekly for the churches in Cuba, said Bishop Michael Bird, when introduced to the synod.The Canadian church provides support for the Cuban church through program support, clergy and seminary faculty stipends and through diocesan companion relationships.The Diocese of Niagara, for example, recently renewed its decade-long companion diocese relationship with the church in Cuba for another five years.“Cuba is kind of a special diocese in the Anglican Communion, and our partnership is a way of expressing solidarity and friendship; a grassroots expression of that,” said the Rev. Bill Mous, the diocese’s director of justice, community and global ministries.The Episcopal Church of Cuba traces its origins back to an Anglican presence beginning in 1901. Today there are some 46 congregations and missions serving 10,000 members and the wider communities. During the 1960s, Fidel Castro’s government began cracking down on religion, jailing religious leaders and believers, and it wasn’t until the Pope John Paul II’s 1998 visit to Cuba, the first ever visit by a Roman Catholic pope to the island, that the government began a move back toward tolerance of religion.The Cuban Revolution, led by Castro, began in 1953 and lasted until President Fulgencio Batista was forced from power in 1959. Batista’s anti-communist, authoritarian government was replaced with a socialist state, which in 1965 aligned itself with the communist party. In 2008 Raul Castro replaced as president his ailing brother.Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, Dominican Republic Bishop Julio César Holguín and Diocese of Eastern Michigan Bishop Todd Ousley in procession for the closing Eucharist. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceWhat struck Diocese of Eastern Michigan Bishop Todd Ousley most was the uniquely Cuban way of being Anglican.“What was most striking to me was the sense of how they strategically contextualize the church by very carefully honoring their Cuban culture and melding that with Anglicanism,” he said, adding that it’s clear from the strategic plan that not only the leadership of the bishop is important, but also that of the clergy and the laity.He also was impressed, he said, with the church’s focus on justice issues and helping the “least of theseBishop Miguel Tamayo Zaldívar, former interim bishop of Cuba, and Bishop Ulises Aguero, bishop emeritus of Cuba, during the procession of the closing Eucharist. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThe Cuban church’s experience with socialism and its understanding that everyone must work together in solidarity serves as a good model for the church in North and Latin America, said Ousley.Overlapping with the start of the church’s General Synod, a diverse Anglican-Episcopal mission group – including people from the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, El Salvador – visited St. Francisco de Assisi Church in Cárdenas, in Matanzas Province, about a two hours’ drive east of Havana. The group was led by the Rev. Canon Juan Andrés Quevedo, rector of the Church of the Redeemer in Astoria, Queens, and an archdeacon in the Diocese of Long Island.It was the first time in 13 years that Quevedo, who was born in the city of Matanzas and who attended the local evangelical seminary before studying at Trinity College in Toronto, Canada, had been back in Cuba.In the grass alongside St. Francisco de Assisi cinderblocks were neatly arranged in rows, almost like headstones in a cemetery, only they were there to keep the church’s newly sanded and stained pews from touching the grass.The mission group needed a service project to be completed within a week so, along with the Rev. Aurelio de la Paz Cot, they decided it would be best to refinish the pews, and to passersby the neatly arranged cinderblocks and the drying pews looked curious.“For us it was an evangelism event,” said de la Paz, who was a seminary mate of Quevedo’s in Matanza, adding that the people nearby, curious about the work and the workers, would stop by and ask, “Who are these people?”And more than that, for de la Paz it was a “marvelous experience” and it meant a lot for him and his congregation that people would use their vacation time and their personal resources to come to Cuba, to learn about its culture and its people and share something of themselves, with people who are otherwise somewhat isolated.For those who traveled to the island, the experience was at the same time one of both joy and pain, said Quevedo, with many comparing their own country’s experience with totalitarian regimes and high levels of poverty.“They have seen a side of poverty not familiar to them,” he said, during a visit to an organic farm near Cádenas run by the Christian Center for Reflection and Dialogue.“Our poor are educated and that makes them self-aware of how to live better, where in their countries the poor have been beaten into despair.”That self-awareness also can be seen in the way the church operates in Cuba.“It’s a very cultural church, rooted in the history of Cuba,” said Carlos Austin, a second-year seminarian from the Episcopal Church of Panama.The church has strong leadership, he said, but one of its most defining characteristics is its youth presence.“Young people really get involved,” said Austin. “It’s not like in our countries; maybe they aren’t as organized but they have the manpower.”As a seminarian at Evangelical Theological Seminary in Matanzas, Austin spends his weekends serving Cuatro Esquinas, a church in Los Arabos, a community some 65 miles away.“They are an example of what a church should do community-wise,” said Austin, adding that the church serves as a community center and dispenses medicines and purified water. “The priest and the leadership are seen as helpers; where I come from we [the church] have to learn more about the community.“Many times it looks like we are focused on inward evangelism; here they don’t focus on evangelism, they focus on mission and the evangelism will follow.”It was the Rt. Rev. Julio Murray, bishop of Panama, who decided Austin would attend seminary in Cuba, rather than in Brazil, Austin’s other alternative. He’s one of 17 resident seminarians; the school has 500 distance-learning students across Cuba.The bishop wanted Austin to study theology in the Latin-American context, and for Austin, at least in the beginning, it was difficult because everyday life in Cuba requires fortitude.Public transportation in Cuba is limited and it can take hours to cover short distances; basic goods like toilet paper, soap and toothpaste can be difficult to come by, regardless of whether you have the money or not to buy them; salaries are low, with doctors earning less than $20 a month.If not for the kindness of church members, Austin said, he would have left.“That’s what’s made the difference for me here, the church and the people took me in,” he said.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Please enter your email address here From the New York TimesSam Shepard, the celebrated avant-garde playwright and Oscar-nominated actor, died on Thursday at his home in Kentucky. He was 73.A spokesman for the Shepard family said the cause was complications of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease.One of the most important and influential early writers in the Off Broadway movement, Mr. Shepard captured and chronicled the darker sides of American family life in plays like “Buried Child,” which won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1979, and “Curse of the Starving Class” and “A Lie of the Mind.”Sam ShepardHe was widely regarded as one of the most original voices of his generation, winning praise from critics for his searing portraits of spouses, siblings and lovers struggling with issues of identity, failure and the fleeting nature of the American dream. He was nominated for two other Pulitzers, for “True West” and “Fool for Love,” which both received Broadway productions.Mr. Shepard was also an accomplished actor, nominated for an Academy Award for his supporting role in “The Right Stuff.” His most recent work was in the Netflix show “Bloodline,” where he appeared as the character of Robert Rayburn. He also appeared on New York stages, winning strong reviews for his performance in the Off Broadway production of Caryl Churchill’s “A Number” in 2004.Working at Off Broadway landmarks like La MaMa and Caffe Cino, Mr. Shepard almost immediately received critical acclaim upon embarking on his career, winning Obie Awards for “Chicago” and “Icarus’s Mother” in 1965 and then “Red Cross” and “La Turista” in 1966. He would win seven more.He is survived by his children — Jesse, Hannah and Walker Shepard — and his sisters, Sandy and Roxanne Rogers. Please enter your comment!

Ronan O’Gara kicks Munster to victory over Perpignan

Posted on

first_imgSaturday Dec 12, 2009 Ronan O’Gara kicks Munster to victory over Perpignan Munster showed their experience by coming from behind to get the win against a Perpignan side that scored three tries against them in the Pool 1 Heineken Cup match at Thomond Park last night.Under pressure after being dropped from the Ireland side that played the Springboks, Ronan OGara came back well as he kicked Munster to a thrilling 24-23 victory over the Top 14 champions.It was the visitors who scored three tries though, two of which were outstanding. The first of the three was scored by Yoann Vivalda after a sloppy lineout, but then Nicolas Durand outdid Doug Howlett one-on-one with a superb step before touching down in the corner.OGara and Jerome Porical exchanged penalties in the second half, before the 70th minute produced an excellent solo effort from former Cheetahs fullback, South African Philip Burger.The former Sevens player, who showed such promise in the Currie Cup in 2007, collected the ball just outside his 22 before racing downfield to outstrip the Munster defenders and score a classic try that took the visitors into the lead with ten minutes left.All the hard work was undone though as flanker Bertrand Guiry gave a penalty away right in front of the posts with a high tackle. OGara duly kicked the match-winning points, and the home side now look on track to quality for the quarter finals for the twelfth successive year.Munster coach Tony McGahan praised Man of the Match OGaras performance.“I thought Ronan O’Gara was outstanding. He has been outstanding ever since he came back into the camp after the autumn internationals,” said McGahan.“He is a tremendously strong-willed person. He did not lose his belief and we certainly did not lose our belief in him. It was an outstanding performance from an outstanding player. Everyone is delighted for him,” he added.

first_imgphotographs:  Peter ClarkePhotographs:  Peter Clarke Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeText description provided by the architects. This new house in the Melbourne suburb of Toorak was designed for a family of Singaporean heritage and is an interpretation of the Asian courtyard house typology for an Australian urban setting. A series of courtyards are subtracted from the form to create a level of openness that allows the residents to see through the spaces. The courtyards punctuate the delineation of space, which is more pronounced in a courtyard house than contemporary, open-plan design. Save this picture!© Peter Clarke The progression through the spaces is carefully engineered, creating a feeling of the presence of rooms without the use of walls or physical dividers. The result is the harmonious, carefully calibrated spaces that seamlessly transitions between inside and outside. The structure is simple and aesthetically refined, the stucco render balancing with slatted operable screens creating the juxtaposition between solid and fluid. Save this picture!© Peter Clarke The entry to the house was designed to take guests into the very heart of the house. The house is built around a walled courtyard allowing the ground floor to be left open to the outside. Save this picture!© Peter Clarke The building is designed to sit close to the ground. The polished concrete floor used in the living areas extends out into the courtyards creating a flow between the ground floor living and the external garden areas. Save this picture!© Peter Clarke Large steel shutters wrap around the link between the master bedroom and the children’s and guests’ bedroom wing. The density of the slats varies to allow light in but not views from neighbouring houses. The 12-metre joinery bench which extends from the kitchen through to the dining and living rooms was designed to create a horizontal recess in which to display objects.

Animal charities can reclaim overpaid VAT

Posted on

first_imgAnimal charities that take in stray animals and ‘sell’ them to new owners can now do so without having to add VAT to the price.A VAT tribunal ruled that abandoned animals handed in to rescue centres and charities by police or members of the public are zero rated for VAT when they are rehomed. HMRC previously said that only animals ‘donated’ to such charities by their original owners could be zero-rated.This means that charities can now claim for previously overpaid VAT, which could go back a number of years.The tribunal was ruling on behalf of the Gablesfarm Dogs and Cats Home in Plymouth.
