As we all know, the risks of a hard Brexit are extremely high. But it doesn’t mean that investors should avoid Footsie shares. Instead, they should add purely domestic stocks to their portfolios.Brexit uncertaintyIt looks like the UK’s government has taken a hard stance towards negotiations with the EU. There are certain points that the UK and the EU simply cannot agree on. For example, they cannot reach a compromise on fishing rights. It seems that the negotiations might go on for a long time. But the most serious problem is the December deadline, I think. The British government and Parliament simply do not want to extend it. So, I think the chances of a hard Brexit are quite high. But don’t worry! You can hedge against this risk by buying some purely domestic companies’ shares. What do I mean by this? Well, these companies rely on the UK’s consumers and not the EU’s markets. 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…Purely British stocksAs my colleague Jonathan Smith pointed out, purely domestic shares should be bought as a hedge against a hard Brexit. I agree with him. Some of the stocks Jonathan mentioned seem to be less risky than others.Taylor Wimpey is a housebuilding firm. Since it has little to do with the EU, it could look like it is less of a risk than many Footsie companies. However, there is a rather indirect link between the company and the Brexit. Many economists argue that a hard Brexit would lead to a long-lasting recession. If they are right, then a recession would lead to a dramatic fall in people’s incomes and savings. As a result, they would have much less cash available to spend on houses and flats. So, the demand for Taylor Wimpey’s services would decline, leading to a significant reduction in the firm’s revenue and profits. In my view, supermarkets are by far a much better alternative to housebuilders if a hard Brexit takes place. This is because supermarkets sell groceries and other essentials. Obviously, consumers have to eat and buy hygiene items regardless of their incomes. Moreover, this type of goods also takes a relatively small proportion of people’s incomes. So, they will not significantly reduce their spending on the goods sold by largest UK supermarkets. Finally, supermarkets like Tesco and J Sainsbury are not overexposed to the EU’s markets either. All this makes this sector a rather risk-free bet in case of a hard Brexit. But the question is whether to choose Tesco’s or J Sainsbury’s shares. I think that Tesco is a better alternative to Sainsbury. First of all, the former is much larger. Sainsbury’s sales revenue in 2019 was a little bit above £28bn as opposed to Tesco’s sales of over £63bn. Moreover, Tesco’s net profit margin, a key efficiency indicator, is 1.5% compared to Sainsbury’s net profit margin of 0.5%. Then, Sainsbury’s price-to-earnings-before special-items ratio is 33 as opposed to Tesco’s 23. This means that Sainsbury is more overvalued than Tesco.So, my choice among these British shares is definitely Tesco. However, I don’t think that an investor should only focus on “purely British” shares. There are many other FTSE 100 companies that can surely survive and flourish even during a tough recession.

Sandra McCann baptizes an elderly member of St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Chikola, Tanzania, during one of her parish visits in the Diocese of Central Tanganyika.[Episcopal News Service] As a child, the Rev. Sandra McCann dreamed of someday going to Africa. But she never imagined it would become her home, her ministry and her entire life for 12 years.When Sandy and her husband Martin reached their mid-50s, they made the audacious decision to give up their successful medical careers in radiology and pathology, sell their home and move to Africa as Episcopal Church missionaries. Their move was delayed for three years and in that time Sandy graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree and was ordained as an Episcopal priest.After an “internship” year in Maseno, Kenya, where they worked alongside fellow Episcopal missionaries Gerry and Nancy Hardison, the McCanns moved to Dodoma, Tanzania’s capital city, and have spent the past decade teaching and healing and living in a community far removed from their former lives in Columbus, Georgia. The experience has changed and expanded their worldview forever, they say.With support and encouragement from the Episcopal Church’s Mission Personnel Office, and at the invitation of the late Bishop Mdimi Mhogolo of the Diocese of Central Tanganyika, Sandy taught at Msalato Theological College and eventually took up the position of communications director as well as serving as college chaplain.Episcopal missionary Martin McCann analyzes a specimen at his pathology laboratory in Dodoma, Tanzania. Photo: David CopleyMartin set up a pathology laboratory where diseases could be detected through the use of a variety of investigative techniques, a service that has grown steadily over the past 10 years and was previously nonexistent in the central part of Tanzania. Today, the clinic receives specimens from local government hospitals in Dodoma as well as several mission hospitals.“The laboratory has brought a new dimension to the healthcare system here,” Martin told ENS. “Physicians, instead of going from symptoms to treatment, are expanding their diagnostic capabilities and evidence-based care. Although there are still great challenges in treatment options, patients are better off.”Over the years, through generous donations, Martin has been able to replace and upgrade equipment and his staff of one assistant has grown to three, one with a degree in histopathology.Martin has concentrated his efforts on fine-needle aspiration, a simple procedure for establishing a swift diagnosis that he feels has a vital role to play in resource-poor countries. In 2014, he completed more than 1,200 fine needle aspiration biopsies and 2,200 histopathology cases.Now in their early 70s, the McCanns have decided 2015 will be their last year in Tanzania, a difficult decision for them, but one that has been made easier by the successful conclusion to an endowment for Msalato Theological College to provide for student sponsorships and faculty salaries.But before they leave, they are eager to ensure that Martin’s pathology practice will be continued and are urgently seeking a pathologist (or two) to replace him.[Anyone interested in working as a pathologist in Dodoma should contact the Rev. David Copley, mission personnel officer for the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, at [email protected]]The McCanns are made honorary members of St. Paul’s Women’s Choir in Mvumi Makula, during a parish visit in the Diocese of Central Tanganyika.Crossing cultural boundaries, building partnerships and engaging God’s mission locally and globally are at the very heart of The Episcopal Church’s missionary program, which is administered by the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society and currently sponsors and supports 47 adult missionaries. Doctors, nurses, teachers, accountants, agriculturalists, computer technicians, administrators, theologians, and communicators are among their many roles.Missionaries are lay and ordained, young and old, and serve as “representatives of our community who cross cultural boundaries to participate in the mission of God that our brothers and sisters in other parts of the Anglican Communion feel called to respond to,” says Copley, mission personnel officer for the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society.It is difficult “to quantify the success of our missionaries because the basic premise is always to strengthen relationships with our partners.” Some of the greatest success stories can be found “in the programs that continue when the missionary presence ends,” Copley added, hence the importance of finding a replacement for Martin to ensure that his pathology practice can continue to serve those in need in central Tanzania.The recently released Report to the Church details the work of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society in coordinating and supporting Episcopal Church missionaries serving throughout the world.“The Episcopal Church supports many forms of mission service which include our young adults undertaking a year of service with the Young Adult Service Corps (YASC), older adults on one-year assignments and special short-term projects of less than a year as well as longer-term missionaries. They all have their place in the bigger picture of global mission engagement and all have their merits,” said Copley.“Long-term missionaries such as the McCanns gain unique insights into the life, culture and faith of the partners they are walking alongside which cannot be gained on shorter-term assignments,” Copley added. “The McCanns have been the physical embodiment of the relationship that The Episcopal Church nurtures in Tanzania and throughout the church. The relationships that they develop with our Anglican partners helps strengthen the Anglican Communion and helps bring the Body of Christ closer together.“Martin and Sandy have given a significant part of their lives in the service of others and we are grateful for their ministry.”Martin became interested in becoming a missionary after serving on short-term medical mission trips with various denominations to Haiti and South America. Then with World Medical Mission, Martin served as a pathologist in Kijabe, Kenya, receiving specimens and returning diagnoses from some 42 hospitals and clinics. The laboratory he has established at the Anglican Diocesan Medical Center in Dodoma follows the same model.For Sandy, installed as a canon of the Diocese of Central Tanganyika in May 2012 in honor of her ministry there, the missionary seeds were planted early in life. “My mother was a Christian who was always doing for others … from sharing her garden, her table, her car, to her hair-cutting skills,” she said. “Wasting anything was a sin. Making do was an art. Our clothes were mended, washed, ironed and passed on when we outgrew them. Whatever we put on our plates had to be eaten, because ‘there are children starving in Africa!’ It was in this atmosphere that I was raised up.”The McCanns say they feel privileged to have been called to this work, describing it as interesting, exciting, as well as challenging, learning to live in a completely different culture.The McCanns are made honorary members of St. Paul’s Women’s Choir in Mvumi Makula, during a parish visit in the Diocese of Central Tanganyika.The best part, however, “has been to meet and get to know Christians who remain faithful in very trying and frustrating circumstances. This has certainly opened our eyes to the difference between a first-world problem and a problem of developing countries,” they say. “Listening to the gospel in an entirely new context is transforming. While in the West we practically skip over curses and ghosts and demons, this is not the case here. The liminal space is very thin between the spiritual and physical worlds. Worshiping and studying with East African Christians has opened our minds to other ways of worshiping and to other ways of understanding God.”There is a great freedom in being a missionary, Sandy said, being removed from the social pressures in the United States. “There is no keeping up with the Joneses, not that that was ever a priority with us,” she said. “When we would have the students to our house in Kenya, everyone had to bring their own plate – and we found it was a lot of fun squeezing into our small cottage and making do. At Msalato we borrow the one cake pan or the one meat grinder or the one ‘real’ coffee pot. I like living in community like this. … I am old fashioned and love using things up and making do and being creative with what I have, so this suits me.”The greatest challenges, she said, have been the abject poverty and lack of the most basic resources, especially clean water; bureaucracy and widespread corruption and dishonesty; the fear of authority and of reporting abuses or inappropriate behavior; a prevalent belief in witchcraft, even by Christians and the well-educated; and poor infrastructure.The recent resurgence of the killing of albino children due to the witch doctors promising that their body parts, hair, and blood will bring fortune in love and wealth is particularly disturbing, she said. “It is shocking how prevalent and strong the primitive belief systems remain in parts of Tanzania,” she said.Despite the “extreme difficulty and frustration of living honestly in a corrupt society,” the McCanns say that as a result of the experiences of the past 12 years, “we are less judgmental, more patient and more aware of the monumental work it will take to get Tanzania to the stage of economic independence.”They also have made countless friends and have grown “to admire the Tanzanian people very much. They have shown us that the possibility of deep joy in the midst of daily suffering is real. As the late Bishop Mhogolo once said about being in the village parishes: The people are poor, often they are hungry, but they are still dancing and praising the Lord. It’s true and a beautiful thing to behold.”Sandy says she has seen God’s hand in everything they have done, “but often only through the ‘retrospectoscope.’ Now we are again taking God’s hand and walking out into the dark trusting him for our next work.”— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. April 27, 2015 at 4:29 pm What a joy and privilege it has been to know and love Sandy and Martin. They have expanded my heart and faith.

She was sentenced to serve 26 months. Circle Bear was being held at Tripp County Jail in South Dakota up until March 20. Then, because she was pregnant, she was transferred to Federal Medical Center Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas. FMC Carswell is the only federal medical prison for women in the United States.

This delay in implementing safe practices is but a part of the systemic negligence that killed Andrea Circle Bear.After displaying symptoms for COVID-19, she was sent to a Fort Worth Hospital. “Circle Bear was placed on a ventilator to help her breathe. On April 1, she gave birth while on the ventilator via cesarean section, and on April 4 she tested positive for COVID-19,” according to the BOP. She died on the ventilator, and her baby was returned to her family in South Dakota. (Fort Worth Star-Telegram, May 1)Families Against Mandatory Minimums President Kevin Ring explained in a press release calling for an investigation into Circle Bear’s execution by the state: “Not every prison death is avoidable, but Andrea Circle Bear’s certainly seems to have been — she simply should not have been in a federal prison under these circumstances. In fact, nothing better demonstrates our mindless addiction to punishment more than the fact that, in the midst of a global pandemic, our government moved a 30-year-old, COVID-vulnerable, pregnant woman not to a hospital or to her home, but to a federal prison.” (tinyurl.com/y7j258qt)U.S. perpetrates racial and gender violenceViolence and neglect administered by the U.S. are nothing new to Indigenous nations, as they’ve been steadfast in their resistance to ongoing genocide for six centuries. “Imperialism and ongoing [settler] colonialisms have been ending worlds for as long as they have been in existence.” (“A Billion Black Anthropocenes or None” by Kathryn Yusoff) This system was constructed, and it can be dismantled.Legislation has been one of the ways this imposed order has tried to separate Indigenous people in North America. Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate scholar Dr. Kim Tall Bear explains that the Dawes Act of 1887 and state-sanctioned monogamous marriage functioned as colonial tactics to divide and conquer this land and its people. The act marked the breakup of collective tribal land into individual allotments, which forced Indigenous people into capitalist and proprietary relationships to land, which had not existed previously. (“All My Relations” podcast, March 19, 2019)By offering 160 acres to a head of household, 80 acres for a wife, and 40 acres for each kid, there was a real incentive to be monogamously married and to biologically reproduce. Within this structure, women could not be considered heads of household. So women and children became legally codified as the property of those who could. As a man owned and possessed land, he owned and possessed his spouse and children.Ongoing settler colonialisms and the recent execution of Andrea Circle Bear demonstrate why the U.S. is a central perpetrator of racial and gender violence. Indigenous people are arrested at high rates disproportionate to their percentage of the population. They are the only group that is killed by police at a higher rate than Black people.At the same time, Indigenous women, girls and Two Spirits people are murdered or reported missing every year. To raise awareness for the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit people, organizations like Missing Flowers, Native Justice Coalition and the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women raise #MMIWG2S in our collective consciousness.Violence against this segment of the population remains unbearably high. The Department of Justice found that the murder rate of Native women is 10 times higher than the national average. And we know this is underreported. “The National Crime Information Center reports that, in 2016, there were 5,712 reports of missing American Indian and Alaska Native women and girls, though the U.S. Department of Justice’s federal missing persons database, NamUs, only logged 116 cases.” Human trafficking and mass murder, whether carried out by state or nonstate actors, is in the service of capitalism and white supremacy. (Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Report, Urban Indian Health Institute, 2018)Native people have been in reciprocal relationships with the land for generations, despite attempts to disrupt that. Where war is being waged upon the land via fracking for oil, abandoned uranium mines or the construction of the wall across the southern U.S. border — First Nations people find themselves in zones sacrificed in the name of profit for a few. Destruction of the environment and other settler-imposed structural inequalities are the reason why infection rates for COVID-19 have been so high on reservations disproportionate to the Native makeup of the population. (Workers World, April 29)Gov. Noem threatens legal sovereignty of Sioux tribesAs COVID-19 ravages Indigenous communities, we turn to Andrea Circle Bear’s tribal lands. South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is threatening federal legal action against the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and the Oglala Sioux Tribe because they refuse to take down highway security checkpoints, which they put up to protect their people from the coronavirus. Native nations understand that self-determination and self-defense are a matter of life or death. (NPR, May 12)Support for Indigenous sovereignty must be central in our struggle for liberation. We must all change our relationships to this land and to each other. On our way to that not-so-distant future, we must recognize expressions of gendered violence take many forms, including police brutality, mass incarceration, immigration policies and state-imposed reproductive oppression, and we must fight against them. Solidarity with Andrea Circle Bear’s family and community, both inside and outside prison walls.Prisons disappear people. We need to end cycles of colonial violence by disappearing prisons.

Harrison Barnes, the CEO of LawCrossing, said, â€œThe growth in law jobs is back and here to stay. We saw it in the number of new law jobs being added to LawCrossing, and we also found law firms increasing year-end bonuses, sending a strong signal to the market that the growth is back.â€The number of listed attorney jobs, in the beginning of 2013 on LawCrossing, also stands at a sound score of 29,886 jobs for lawyers, a score that stood at only 14,000 in September 2012. In fact, despite everyone agreeing just a year back that the shape of the market for young lawyers was the worst ever seen, the economy seems to have passed that point already. There are at least 2,287 summer associate job openings on LawCrossing right now, a number, which is much healthier than in last year and that goes to show that law firms are back to hiring.Across the legal services sector, in the beginning of 2013, LawCrossing also has 343 openings listed for judicial clerkship jobs, 1163 partner-level attorney jobs, and 1025 government attorney jobs, beside 8,317 job openings for in-house attorneys.The increasing number of job openings is a clear signal sent by employers that the growth is returning to the legal services sector. And it matches the BLS data that says at least a thousand jobs were added to the legal services sector at the end of last year.That the growth in legal services jobs is back can be seen from a simple glance at the number of live job openings on LawCrossing.

These will include shopping, prescriptions, supplies, information or other suitable requests.The centre, which will operate from 8a.m. to 6p.m. seven days per week, will officially commence tomorrow.The official response will tap into the personnel-rich network of volunteers across Limerick as they respond to individual asks to the helpline. It will be anchored on the ground by the GAA’s 66 clubs across Limerick, who will provide up to 300 volunteers alone. They will be augmented by volunteers from other sporting and community organisations.Said Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Michael Sheahan, “While this is potentially the single biggest crisis we have faced as a nation in living memory and long before, one cannot be but heartened by the incredible spirit of volunteerism that has poured out in response to this crisis. The Limerick COVID-19 Community Response is a perfect example of that and I’m proud as Mayor of Limerick that, not only have we got this incredible public reaction but we have the wherewithal and focus to pull it altogether with this coordinated response.”Said Chief Officer of HSE Mid-West Community Healthcare Maria Bridgeman: “Our ability to overcome the COVID-19 virus will be massively enhanced by working together as a people like never before. A key element of the response is making sure that people who are most vulnerable in this crisis are safe and isolated from the virus yet not cut-off. That’s a challenge, but the establishment of the Limerick COVID-19 Community Response is a brilliant answer to how we get that right. People who are vulnerable will need to stay at home but they will get their daily needs met in their community by someone from their community.”Said Chief Supt. Gerard Roche of An Garda Síochána, Limerick: “An Garda Síochána is delighted to help in any way it can in this crisis.We have made two sergeants available to the Limerick COVID-19 Community Response and our teams at all stations across the county will be ready to support as required.This is an extraordinary time in all our lives and it requires an extraordinary response. The establishment of this official, coordinated volunteer network will do an awful lot for all those isolated in this crisis. It will not alone be an essential service but it will give confidence, trust and security as well. People may be isolated to protect them from this virus but they will know as a result of this initiative that they are not alone.”Those wishing to volunteer are asked to contact [email protected] All volunteers will work to agreed guidelines and regulations and will sign a health protocol before they commit to involvement.A team of six will be involved in dealing with the calls; three will record the requests and three will be making contact with volunteer coordinators in the relevant community who, in turn, will make contact with a volunteer on the ground to carry out the task. It is expected that as the service expands, additional volunteers will be added to the operations centre team.For calls received that are not within the parameters of the initiative, the on-site Garda Sergeant will either refer the details to the communications room in Henry Street Garda Station, who will dispatch a unit to deal with the call, or give the caller the appropriate advice and refer to the relevant agency i.e. HSE or Dept. Social welfare etc.The overall project is being overseen by Limerick City and County Council officers and the centre will have a continuous Garda presence. Volunteers will operate the customer service helpline, with all present applying physical distancing.The Limerick COVID-19 Community Response builds on the very many great initiatives taken by existing organisations and new groups in Limerick in the weeks gone by.Marketing and communications tools will also be used to promote the resource, including an awareness leaflet with key details of the service being distributed to 75,000 homes across the county by An Post and a concerted media and social media promotion, using #LKTogether #MidWestTogether #COVID19 .
