But I think this stock has further to go.The Hut Group’s stock market debut was the UK’s biggest technology IPO, as well as the largest London listing since Royal Mail in 2013. I first started writing about the stock back in December. I’m still bullish on The Hut Group share price and would buy the stock. Here’s 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…#1 – Portfolio of brandsThe Hut Group operates under three divisions: THG Ingenuity, THG Nutrition and THG Beauty. I’ll address THG Ingenuity shortly.The Nutrition and Beauty businesses are a portfolio of growing brands including MyProtein, LookFantastic and GlossyBox. Most of its products are its own, which means margins will be higher than if it sold third-party brands.I like this as it gives the company long-term control over product pricing. This in turn can boost profitability and The Hut Group share price.#2 – IngenuityThe third division is Ingenuity, which I think is the real jewel in the crown. This is a software unit that helps businesses run their e-commerce operations using an all-in-one platform. I think the Ingenuity product has great potential.Over the past few months, the group has secured new partnerships with big-name brands to use the software. Ingenuity has a rapidly growing list of partners including Nestlé, PZ Cussons and Homebase. They’ve signed long-term contracts, which builds up credibility for the product.I think Ingenuity’s growth will continue in 2021 but this is dependent on how coronavirus has impacted companies’ finances. The software will also diversify The Hut Group’s reliance on beauty and wellness. #3 – Acquiring brandsThe company is also growing by acquisition. I think this is a sensible move as it can pick up some bargain companies given the pandemic. This is what Boohoo did when it acquired Oasis and Warehouse last year.In December, The Hut Group announced that it had purchased Dermstore.com, the US e-tailer of prestige skincare and beauty brands, for $350m in cash. This has diversified the portfolio of online beauty assets and enables the company to cross-sell its products.I expect company to continue to use the proceeds from the IPO to acquire brands. This should boost revenue and cross-selling opportunities. But this will take time to bear fruit and impact the bottom line.#4 – Trading statementThe Q4 2020 trading statement was positive. Strong growth was seen across all divisions and it finished the year in a good position. The company expects revenue growth for the 2021 financial year to be between 30% and 35%. These are big double-digit figures. But such optimism has its downsides and if these forecasts are not met, this could hurt the share price.My view on The Hut Group share priceThe Hut Group is a high growth stock that I think is doing all the right things for now. It IPO’d at the ideal time by riding the coronavirus online shopping boom.The company has indicated that it expects strong growth, which if not met could impact the stock. Investors like me don’t want to think that management is being too optimistic in its revenue forecasts. But I think The Hut Group share price is undervalued and I believe the stock can rise from here. I’d buy. 4 reasons why I think The Hut Group share price could rise Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.last_img read more

With Harvey still drenching the South, Episcopalians minister to neighbors

Photo: James Derkits and Trinity by the Sea via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] Robert Jordan, senior warden of Trinity Episcopal Church in Baytown, Texas, says it was just something that had to be done: going out onto the Houston floodwaters in his 18-foot aluminum boat to discover people who needed rescuing. So far, he has found about 30 folks. Some he rescued from their garages; some he plucked from second-story windows. A few times he waded into homes to find people he heard calling out.“It’s a really eerie, spooky kind of feeling because you go in and I wouldn’t say you’re scared but you are just very, very aware of the seriousness of the situation,” Jordan told Episcopal News Service by phone Aug. 30. “Then, when you have to go into the house to get them out, it really puts everything in perspective for you.”A few suddenly homeless Trinity members — and some of their animals — are staying in Jordan’s house in Baytown, which is east of Houston proper and just northwest of Trinity Bay.Jordan worked with two rescuers. Those men waited in pickup trucks for him to bring people out so they could ferry them to safer places.“You have to go by yourself if you can, because you don’t know how many people you’re going to pick up,” he said. “If you take anybody with you, it gives you less capacity.”The days since Hurricane Harvey swamped the Houston area are running together for Jordan, so he said it is hard to remember what he has done on which day. But, early on, he went to Trinity and saw some water encroaching, so he dug a ditch to divert it.The 10-year-old church building has some minor damage and a few leaks, but nothing so bad as to prevent nearly 150 people from sheltering there overnight on Aug. 29. People from all denominations have come to the church to help and to donate supplies, Jordan said.Piloting his rugged boat through an area where only some treetops, and no houses, were visible above the water shocked Jordan. “I’ve been here all my life and I have seen it bad but never anything like this,” he said.

Many Episcopalians in Alexandria, La., are helping friends who are being sent here from East Texas, as we are home to an incredibly large evacuation center near LSU at Alexandria. If anyone wants a visit by a LEM on Sunday, just call St. James Episcopal Church. Farther east, in New Orleans, the rain was most intense late Aug. 28 and into Aug. 29, said the Very Rev. David A. duPlantier, dean of Christ Church Cathedral. Schools closed Aug. 29, but many were open Aug. 30, he said. The cathedral closed the afternoon of Aug. 29 so staff could be home, but it opened the following day, as staff cautiously went about their business. No churches have been damaged so far, the dean said.New Orleans is used to periodic flooding, duPlantier said, so they’ve checked on the parishioners they know are most at risk and learned that some people had water creep to the edges of their homes, but not much else.The worst effect of Hurricane Harvey in New Orleans so far? Post-traumatic stress syndrome. Aug. 29 marked the 12-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which was responsible for 1,833 deaths.“It’s a very emotional time here even when there’s not a storm coming here or elsewhere,” duPlantier said of the day. He was dean then and was in the thick of recovery and relief efforts.The TV images of harrowing rescues in the floodwaters around Houston are bringing back memories among her friends and family, said Karen Mackey, Louisiana diocesan communications coordinator.“We’re relieved the rain hasn’t been as heavy as predicted, and we’re all nervous, but it’s just that time of year,” Mackey said. “We’re just praying for our friends and hoping this thing gets out and over quickly so they can start healing and recovering.”The Louisiana diocese has asked its churches to take up a special collection for Episcopal Relief & Development’s fund for Harvey at Sunday services on Sept. 3.“We are people who have known firsthand the generosity of others. Give what you can,” Louisiana Bishop Morris K. Thompson urged the diocese on Aug. 29.Harvey’s rains and tidal waves have affected areas as far as the Diocese of Southwest Florida, where people were trapped in their homes and some were seen boating along the streets. St. George’s Episcopal Church in Bradenton opened to help people in a flooded mobile home park nearby, said Garland Pollard, Southwest Florida diocesan communications director. 2017 Hurricanes, Featured Jobs & Calls Babs Leggett says: Youth Minister Lorton, VA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Washington, DC Rector Collierville, TN By Mary Frances Schjonberg and Amy SowderPosted Aug 30, 2017 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Episcopal Relief & Development, With Harvey still drenching the South, Episcopalians minister to neighbors From Coastal Bend of Texas to Florida, flooding rains wreak havoc Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Curate Diocese of Nebraska Larry Waters says: Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL 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 Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Tampa, FL Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rescued and evacuated people are spread over the Houston area and beyond. Close to 10,000 have been at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Diocese of Texas Assistant Bishop Hector Monterroso was at the convention center on Aug. 28, and the next day he visited a Red Cross shelter set up in the gym at Forge for Families, in Houston’s predominately African American Third Ward.The former bishop of Costa Rica, who recently moved to Houston, said he hopes he can contribute his experience of living through past hurricanes that wreaked damage across Central America. At both shelters he met people from many countries who now call Houston home. Monterroso also spoke with French tourists who got caught up in the hurricane, losing their money and their passports.Regardless of their languages and their social status prior to the hurricane, the bishop said, people in the shelters are finding ways to communicate, to build community and to support each other.“My first idea was to go there and to be around and look for the opportunity to pray with the people. After some minutes, I discovered that when people saw a clergyperson, they wanted to talk and share their concerns, their situation, their realities and their hopes,” the bishop said. “The most important experience that I had with them is that they feel thankful for their lives. They lost many things. They left their houses and their personal belongings but they say, ‘Thank God, we are here. We are alive and we are safe.’”By the weekend, Texas Archdeacon Russ Oeschel, head of the diocesan disaster relief efforts, will have deacons and lay chaplains in the hardest-hit neighborhoods to offer comfort and emergency funds, the diocese said on Facebook Aug. 29. Spiritual care teams are already visiting the shelter at the convention center.The Very Rev. Barkley Thompson, dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, is helping to coordinate the rectors of Houston’s largest Episcopal churches to respond in the recovery effort. The cathedral was without power for five days until Aug. 30, and some buildings took on water, according to a Facebook post.“I give thanks for each of you who have offered a warm, dry bed, a hot meal or simply comfort to your neighbors,” Texas Bishop Andy Doyle wrote on Facebook. “While it is frustrating to see so much devastation and not be able to fix it, we must first be safe and not create more work for our first responders. Where you have been able to help, it is the reflection of Christ’s love that is shared and it is this love that will bring hope in the darkest moments for many people.”center_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Comments are closed. Rector Shreveport, LA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Featured Events For the Rt. Rev. Dabney Smith, bishop of the Southwest Florida diocese, the flood images in Houston also bring back terrible memories. He was rector of Trinity Church in New Orleans when Katrina hit. Smith remembers piles of garbage as high as rooftops, the constant smell of decay and the sound of gunshots while he was trying to sleep at night.“It was a horrible time, and it was a holy time,” Smith told ENS on Aug. 30. Once the flooding receded, he served on the Jericho Road Episcopal Housing Initiative, begun at the New Orleans cathedral to create desperately needed housing for Katrina victims.“One of things I learned from my Katrina experience that I think they will learn in Houston is that, amidst systematic failures, there’s the power of the church. People from all walks of life came together to care for people who just needed compassion. I’d hear people say, ‘Thank God for the church.’”— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is interim managing editor of the Episcopal News Service. Amy Sowder is a special correspondent for the Episcopal News Service, as well as a writer and editor based in Brooklyn, New York.

Two Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers in a boat with a Houston Fire Department captain rescued Bob Schorr, Diocese of Texas manager of church plants & strategic development, and his family from their flooded home on Aug. 29.The family had hoped to ride out the storm at home. That was until they had 6 feet of water in the garage and 4 feet in the house.“By the time we left this morning, there were U.S. Coast Guard and National Guard helicopters overhead and a flotilla of boats, wave runners and other volunteers patrolling the street looking to take people to safety,” Schorr wrote in a Facebook post after getting to a friend’s home. “I told Nancy, ‘I think it is time to leave.’ I was no longer convinced that we could stay dry on the second floor. I thought it better to be rescued through the front door than out the second-floor bedroom window.”He said all 30 homes in his section of Kingwood, one of the last areas in Houston to flood, were inundated.“Just like any loss or death, your emotions are raw — and well up without warning,” he wrote. “We have just begun the process of recovery — and for us and everyone in Houston and South Texas, it will be a journey of months and years, not days and weeks.” The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Some Harvey evacuees are heading to Dallas, and the nearby Diocese of Forth Worth is updating a webpage about how Episcopalians there can help. Dallas Bishop George Sumner has urged Episcopalians there to donate to Episcopal Relief & Development.Episcopal Relief & Development is partnering with the Diocese of Texas to provide emergency support in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the largest rainstorm in the history of the United States. Emergency support includes pastoral care, gift cards and funding for temporary housing, according to an Aug. 30 web update.Meanwhile, the towns that took Harvey’s first hits are starting the arduous process of cleaning up and facing the future. Volunteers from Trinity by the Sea Episcopal Church in Port Aransas, Texas, are among them. The Rev. James Derkits, Trinity’s rector, said Aug. 30 that he is dividing his time three ways: trying to recover his family’s possessions from the wrecked rectory, seeing that the Trinity campus gets cleaned up and working with the city to get access for church volunteers who can help in the community.The parish hall opened on Aug. 29 to serve as a staging center for Texas Episcopal volunteers. They’re starting to line up, he said. In addition, Episcopalians at St. Peter’s by-the-Sea in Gulfport, Mississippi, “are just waiting for us to say come on,” Derkits said. St. Peter’s was one of the churches Hurricane Katrina damaged on Aug. 29, 2005.Derkits has a lot of help. Brother-in-law Brad Allen is working at the rectory and Jennifer Wickham is helping coordinate volunteers. Wickham, who lives in Corpus Christi where her husband is rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, is the development coordinator for Saint Vincent Centre for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.“It’s very grassroots right now, and so there’s a lot of independent groups of people that are beginning to coordinate with each other and share resources,” Wickham said of the volunteer effort. The Episcopal congregations in Corpus Christi are working together to help the communities to their south that Harvey damaged the most.“The big work is damage assessment and identifying what the major tasks are and trying to figure out how best to communicate that to people so that nobody needs a boss to get it done,” she said.Wickham posted a detailed account of the work on Facebook early on Aug. 30. She and others are struggling to communicate their needs because of inconsistent cellular phone service and internet access.Prayer surrounds the work. The doors of the church are open “for people to come and pray if they need to,” Derkits said.He has been livestreaming Morning Prayer on Facebook. “It’s been helpful because our people are so scattered all over the place and at least the ones who are on Facebook can be connected,” he said. “And it’s been helpful to me as their pastor to have some sense of providing for their spiritual needs as we’re spread out all over place.”The city’s volunteer coordinator joined Morning Prayer on Aug. 30 before briefing the Episcopalians on where volunteers are needed in the city.An Aug. 30 view from space via a NASA satellite shows now-Tropical Storm Harvey spreading across the southern United States. Photo: NASA GOES ProjectThe Diocese of Western Louisiana covers the area where Harvey made its third landfall at about 4 a.m. Aug. 30. Diocesan disaster relief coordinator the Rev. Deacon Lois Maberry told ENS by phone on the afternoon of Aug. 30 that she hadn’t heard how the parishes were faring around Lake Charles, where the eye of Tropical Storm Harvey crossed over at about 8 a.m.“It will be affecting quite a few parishes. We have to let it pass and assess,” Maberry said from the diocesan office about 300 miles north of Lake Charles in Shreveport. “We’re getting rain, and it’s increasing. We’re anticipating the storm will pass right over us in a swath tonight.”In a statement released midday Aug. 30, Bishop Jacob W. Owensby of the Western Louisiana diocese said that schools and offices have been closed in several of the parishes. Floodwaters encroached on some homes and businesses in the south and west areas of the diocese. Owensby is in the process of connecting with clergy in charge of congregations to check on their status.“We wait together, not only to see what this storm brings, but also to discern how to be most helpful to those in need,” Owensby said. He continued later in the statement, “You are in my prayers for safety. Together we will get through this and bring aid to those in need.” The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Bath, NC Submit a Job Listing Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Albany, NY Press Release Service Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Submit an Event Listing Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Knoxville, TN Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ August 31, 2017 at 11:22 am Words fail and eyes have “dust” in them as I seek to honor the people who are affected by this hurricane and the heroes who are there helping them.

The other advert explores the little known but vital care that MSF gives to refugees suffering ongoing, life-threatening medical conditions. This is a different side to MSF’s work and has never been seen on UK TV before.£5 askBoth adverts use an online search call to action with a £5 donation ask.The Jordan footage was filmed on location in Amman and Irbid by award-winning cameraman Tom Barnes and directed by Maria Phillips of WPN Chameleon, working closely with Shona Barnes of MSF UK to gain special access to MSF’s clinics and hospitals there.Shona Barnes, Campaigns Manager of MSF UK, commented: “This new DRTV campaign breaks important new ground for us. Whilst the UK public is sadly all too familiar with stories of victims of war, it is important to give equal emphasis on the ongoing life threatening medical conditions as this is a vital part of MSF’s lifesaving work – and its continued need for support.”Maria Phillips, Director of TV and Film at WPN Chameleon commented: “Filming in Jordan gave us the unique opportunity to show a different side to the refugee story.“In particular we wanted to capture the desperate plight of elderly Syrians who arrive with serious ongoing conditions and who have little hope of getting the help they need without MSF. We also wanted to show potential UK supporters that simple, tangible everyday medicines like aspirin really are lifesavers to a refugee.”center_img Tagged with: DRTV refugees video WPN Chameleon Howard Lake | 15 June 2017 | News  352 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6last_img read more

Violence against journalists escalates in Hong Kong

In the past two months, journalists covering the anti-extradition bill protests were increasingly the victim of intimidation and physical abuse by the police as well as pro-Beijing mobs (see the events in chronological order below).“Violence against journalists has now become systematic and clearly aims to discourage them from covering the protests,” says Cédric Alviani, head of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) East Asia bureau, who urges the Hong Kong authorities to “terminate the violence against the press and launch an independent investigation into the past acts of brutality.”The Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Hong Kong (FCCHK) wrote yesterday a letter to Hong Kong Commissioner of Police, Stephen Lo Wai Chung, expressing concern over the recent acts of violence.Since early June, Hong Kong has seen massive demonstrations against a bill that would allow authorities to extradite residents or visitors, including journalists and their sources, to China. Two weeks ago, RSF wrote to Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam, detailing five proposals to restore full press freedom. In the RSF World Press Freedom Index, China’s Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong has plummeted from 18th in 2002 to 73rd this year. China itself is ranked 177th out of 180.Attacks against journalists in the past two months11 August 2019: Five journalists from online media HK01, Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) and daily newspaper Ming Pao, including one from an unidentified news media, were physically attacked by a group of pro-Beijing mobs in the North Point area, while a reporter from online media Stand News was verbally assaulted and threatened.5 August 2019: In the Sham Shui Po area, a student journalist fainted after being hit by a tear gas canister shot by the police.

Minister’s eye off the ball as apprentice numbers drop

Yet, as we have come to see from this Government, high profile spin rarely equates to delivery on promises.“It is correct for the State to support apprenticeships in new sectors of the economy. Matching skilled persons with job market demand is an absolute requirement for maintaining a highly skilled economy,” he concluded.by Alan [email protected] Facebook Print WhatsApp Linkedin Previous article#Limerick duo Pity of the Sea debvt EPNext articleTraffic calming measures for Rathkeale Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” center_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsLocal NewsMinister’s eye off the ball as apprentice numbers dropBy Alan Jacques – November 24, 2017 1403 Twitter WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more
