The stock market crash means that many FTSE 100 shares now trade on relatively attractive valuations.Indeed, even after the recent recovery in stock prices, some FTSE 100 shares still look too cheap. Their valuations suggest they offer margins of safety.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…Here are two companies that appear to me to fit the bill. They may experience further uncertainty in the short term, but they seem likely to produce healthy recoveries in the long run. Therefore, buying these stocks today could help improve your financial situation in the years ahead. FTSE 100 dividend stock: MorrisonsThe recent first-quarter update released by FTSE 100 retailer Morrisons (LSE: MRW) highlighted the financial impact that coronavirus is having on its performance.While the crisis has thrown up some unprecedented challenges for the business, sales jumped by nearly 6% during the first quarter of the year.Sales growth came from both the group’s bricks and mortar stores and its online operation. According to the business, it has increased its number of online delivery slots by more than 100% this year. Morrisons also reported that there was a significant recent increase in wholesale sales to convenience store partners during the first quarter. This further helped support overall group growth during the period. Unfortunately, while sales grew substantially during the first quarter, costs also grew. This caused the FTSE 100 company to review its cash return policy for the rest of the year. Morrisons is still planning to pay a regular dividend this year. However, it is unlikely to repeat the special dividend distributed last year. Yet even without this payout, the stock yields 4.6%. Therefore, with the FTSE 100 stock down around 10% since the beginning of the year, now could be an opportune moment to buy a slice of this dividend champion while it trades at a relatively low price. PrudentialFinancial services firm Prudential (LSE: PRU) may face further uncertainty in the short term. Nonetheless, the company seems well-positioned to deliver relatively strong growth in the long run. After disposing of its UK business last year, the FTSE 100 company is primarily focused on Asia and the US. It is reportedly in the process of selling its US business Jackson Life. Analysts think this could be worth a substantial percentage of Prudential’s current market capitalisation.When Prudential’s US business is gone, the corporation will be purely focused on the Asian life insurance and wealth management market. This is still a relatively undeveloped market. There are tens, and potentially hundreds, of millions of customers who will need the company’s services over the next few years. If Prudential can capture just a small share of this massive market, the stock could generate attractive returns over the long run. Despite this potential, shares in the financial services group are still off around 12% year-to-date. With a dividend yield of 2.6% on offer, now could be the time to buy a share of this growth champion for the long run.  Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 14th June, 2020 | More on: MRW PRU center_img Enter Your Email Address Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Brian Kelley.The Rev. Canon Brian Scott Kelley, an Episcopal priest, poet, civil rights activist and compassionate advocate for the marginalized and vulnerable, died peacefully at his residence in Concord, Massachusetts on April 6, 2021. He was 92 years old. “Brian’s central belief was that God calls us out of our pews and into partnerships to respond to the needs of the world,” remembers the Very Rev. Jep Streit, Dean Emeritus of Boston’s Cathedral Church of St. Paul, where Brian was a member of the clergy and Cathedral Canon of Social Action. He adds: “A priest called to a new church often needs to gently and lovingly dismantle projects and ministries that are no longer relevant. My arrival was just the opposite—shepherding and expanding the visionary ministries that Brian had put in place.”Descended from a long line of Anglican clergy, Brian was born on September 20, 1928 in Quebec City, Canada, to Mary Scott Kelley and Arthur Reading Kelley. A consummate scholar with a thirst for knowledge, Brian was a lifelong learner. Upon earning a bachelor of arts degree from Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Quebec, and a master’s in education from Montreal’s McGill University (where he met his beloved wife Sara), Brian followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather by becoming an Episcopal priest.  After graduating from The Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1957, Brian served in the Diocese of Quebec and was ordained there. In 1960, Brian and Sara (who had married on September 9, 1956 in Greenwich, Connecticut) returned to Massachusetts, where Brian served as Rector at Saint John’s Church, Charlestown.While at Episcopal Divinity School, Brian had become involved with efforts to challenge the conscience of the church with respect to social and racial inequality; upon his return to Massachusetts, he became active in the civil rights movement and joined the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity. In 1962, Brian traveled to Albany, Georgia to join the “Albany Movement,” marching with protesters and bearing witness in the courtroom during the trial of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ralph Abernathy. In June 1963, Brian joined a delegation of Episcopal clergy who traveled to Jackson, Mississippi to attend the funeral of famed civil rights activist Medgar Evers and, later that summer, participated in the March on Washington. Brian again traveled south in June of 1965, heading to Philadelphia, Mississippi to join those continuing James Meredith’s March Against Fear following the wounding of Mr. Meredith by a gunman. Sara also participated in the movement, marching in the final leg of the Selma to Montgomery March for Voting Rights in March 1965.Brian continued to write and preach about social and economic justice, including injustices he saw in his adopted city of Boston. After earning a doctor of education degree from Harvard University in the early 1970s, Brian served as Assistant Headmaster of one of the first pilot schools in Boston. The Massachusetts Experimental School System focused on creating opportunities for student learning through experience and group relationships, encouraging students to seek to “produce constructive changes in the urban environment, and to perceive cultural, ethnic, economic and religious differences as a potential source of enrichment rather than as a threat.”Troubled by the plight of Boston’s ever-increasing population of homeless and disenfranchised individuals, Brian, resuming his full-time ministry at the Cathedral, created Social Action Ministries, an interfaith organization dedicated to serving the needs of the City’s most vulnerable. “No one did more in Boston in his era to move us all – politicians, state workers, advocates, people of faith, religious institutions – to a wider view of the poorest and our responsibilities to them,” states Philip Mangano, who worked with Brian at Social Action Ministries, now known the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance (MHSA).  “That long history he had in the civil rights movement, informed by his resilient faith, served him well in his interactions with mayors and public officials, seeking their support on behalf of the most vulnerable. Speeding around Boston on his throwback Raleigh bicycle, meeting with any who asked and working to create impactful initiatives, he was a hero to many, including myself, and—as priest and canon—a symbol of God’s grace to thousands more.”Today, MHSA draws upon the expertise of nearly 100 member agencies statewide to develop and advocate for innovative housing and support services for the state’s most vulnerable. MHSA’s annual Canon Brian S. Kelley Public Servant Award honors those whose work best reflects Brian’s dedication to ending the crisis of homelessness. “There is not a single movement in Boston to do with seeking relief for the poor promoting economic and social justice, and alleviating what makes people poor that did not have his mark on it.  In particular, he was a driving force around addressing the scandal of homelessness in Boston,” shared Joe Finn, MHSA’s President and Executive Director.A lifelong poet, in his retirement Brian was able to dedicate more time to his writing, and he joined several poetry groups, including the Writers Workshop at UMass Boston’s Joyner Center and the Antlers Writing Workshop in Wonalancet, NH.  Brian’s poems are published in several collections. Upon learning of his death, a fellow poet offered these words about Brian: “Our loss of a very wonderful man, an uplifting preacher at our Chapel, our sweet close friend, a great dancer, beloved family man, determined conservationist, and a lovely poet. Thanks be to God for him, and our time together.”Before moving to Concord in 2016, Brian and Sara, an early childhood educator, lived in Boston’s South End for 50 years, where they raised their three children. Throughout their life together, Brian and Sara were dedicated patrons of the arts, attending plays, concerts, readings, and countless museum exhibits. Avid hikers, skiers, gardeners and contra dancers, they enjoyed year-round activities with family and friends at their second home in South Tamworth, New Hampshire, which continues to be a gathering place for all.In addition to his wife, Brian is survived by his son, Michael Scott Kelley (Alicia) of Maynard, Massachusetts, his daughter Charlotte Kelley Kingham (Barry) of New York City and his daughter Jennifer Kelley Reed (Jeffrey) of Newton, Massachusetts, and by his cherished grandchildren: Kristen, Julia and Daniel Kelley, Madeleine and Nicholas Reed and Victoria and Will Kingham.  A dedicated father and grandfather, Brian enjoyed getting into “good mischief” with his grandchildren, reveling in their activities and adventures together throughout the years. Brian is also survived by his sister, Helen Morrison, who lives in Montreal, as well as by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins, at many of whose weddings he officiated. He was predeceased by a daughter Allison Brooks Kelley, and by his siblings Frederick Kelley, Frances Kelley and Rosemary Cartwright.A devoted husband, father, grandfather, sibling and friend, Brian was the essence of his being until the very end, a gracious, compassionate and loving individual.“Brian reflected a transcendent love during his life and impacted thousands of lives throughout his pastoral career,” observes Joe Finn. Adds Mr. Mangano: “We all loved him and ‘tolerated’ Brian’s expansiveness, not knowing that by osmosis we were having our spirits and souls stretched by him.”The family would like to thank the dedicated caregivers who helped to support Brian in his later years.Memorial services will be held in both Concord, MA and South Tamworth, NH at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Brian’s name to the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance, PO Box 8638, Boston, MA 02114, www.mhsa.net or to the Manna Program at Saint Paul’s Cathedral, 138 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02111, https://www.stpaulboston.org/manna.

New restaurant has roots in the community

first_imgTijuana Flats comes to ApopkaBusiness Around TownBy Valynn A. Sala-DiakandaTijuana Flats is a locally founded company with its eye on Central Florida. Before the end of the year the restaurant hopes to have their grand opening in Eustis and one near the Millenia Mall. Naturally, residents of Apopka have been eyeing their progress. When I saw the colorful string of lights inside I knew we were getting very close to opening day. Their soft opening tickets were completely gone within 18hrs!  “It’s the first time we actually did a soft opening via social media”, stated Brandy Blackwell, Sr. Marketing Manager of Tijuana Flats. It is a really exciting time for Apopka. Over 500 people will have ordered and sat-down in this new Tijuana Flats prior to opening day on October 31!Tijuana Flats wants to bring something new to this side of the border! With an artsy indoor flavor to complement their unique hot sauces, Brandy says that people want an experience when they walk into a restaurant and she really feels that Tijuana provides that experience.  Additionally, two valuable demographics of Apopka is that it is very family oriented as well as a very tight knit community. Residents want kid friendly, affordability and of course the ability to sit down to have a great meal.Did you know that the second Tijuana to ever open was the one in Hunt Club? So Tijuana isn’t new to recognizing Apopka’s potential. This company has been seriously considering  Apopka’s second location for about a year now. When a company like Tijuana Flats scouts a location, they of course look at lots of families, schools, neighborhoods, a location which makes sense for them and fits within their budget. However, many residents have commented about Tijuana already having an Apopka presence at that very location, but the corridor of Apopka alongside Orange Blossom Trail really opens the door to new areas. Brandy says, “This location will allow us to fulfill a gap that we have.  We can serve residents on the other side of Apopka as well as those in Mount Dora and Leesberg. This location has the potential to draw in a completely different residential group of loyal people.If Tijuana Flats sounds like a yummy option then you may be interested in the Founder’s other restaurants, one of which is Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen.  Beyond market analysis, social media helps when considering a location. If Apopkans speak loud enough, we may open the door for Tibby’s. Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen gives the exact flavor as the name implies. Nonetheless, before we look for more, let us truly celebrate what we have. Brandy adds the fact that people really have their favorite Tijuana.  Maybe Apopka might just be yours! Check out the first week specials and if you missed the opportunity to dine during soft opening week, please comment below and you will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card, compliments of Tijuana Flats! But just in case the community is wondering about how they give back, have no fear. Their generosity extends into their Just in Queso Foundation.  Just in case a community issue arises, they are open to listening and helping to solve the problem.  Valynn A. Sala-Diakanda is an Apopka resident with an interest in business and entrepreneurship. October 23, 2016 at 3:26 pm Love Tijuana Flats!

first_imgUnion members celebrate the rejection of the proposed Boeing contract in Seattle, Nov. 13.Seattle — A two-to-one “no” vote by the 31,000 members of Machinists District 751 (IAM) rejected Boeing’s attempt to ram a cutback labor contract down their throats. The Nov. 13 Seattle-area vote also upended the company’s plans to consolidate its labor contract with $8.7 billion in state tax breaks for the company. The tax breaks had been forced through the Washington state legislature on Nov. 9 in a hurry-up, three-day session.The package deal would have committed Boeing to continue assembling the redesigned 777X airplane at its Everett, Wash., plant with a supposed guarantee of 50,000 jobs. Boeing executives were then hoping to take this hugely favorable production deal to the Dubai airshow over the Nov. 16-17 weekend and take home megabillions in orders for the plane. In fact Boeing got orders of $95 billion, reported the Nov. 18 New York Times.The IAM top leadership had apparently been in quiet negotiations with Boeing for some time on this eight-year labor contract extension, but the contract was presented to the workers as an ultimatum, with only a week or so to decide. The workers were told to agree to the contract extension or Boeing, which is heading toward record profits this year, would consider taking its 777X jobs and production elsewhere.The proposed eight-year extension included a no-strike pledge through 2024; a 1 percent raise one year and nothing the next; converting the Machinists’ solid pension plan into a regressive 401(k); greatly increased medical plan costs; and more than doubling the time it takes new hires to reach top pay scale, from nearly 10 to 20 years.The Machinists have gone on strike many times to gain and hold onto their benefits over the years. So the company said it would sweeten the deal with a $10,000 cash signing bonus — far less than what the workers would have to give up.A “Vote No” rally of 400 was held outside the Everett IAM union hall on Nov. 8. Wilson Ferguson, president of the district’s Local A, called the new deal “the Walmartization of aerospace.” (Seattle Times, Nov. 11) Earlier that week, workers marched through the Everett plant on their lunch break chanting “Vote No.” Many went to the Seattle hall where District 751 Directing Business Representative Tom Wroblewski was forced to tear up the “crappy” contract instead of trying to sell it.The state legislature had passed an $8.7 billion multiyear tax-cut package for Boeing — the largest subsidy given by a state or local government in U.S. history. This was supposedly to help keep Boeing jobs in the Seattle area, but was really craven bowing down to the company. That would probably bring on massive cuts in vital programs, including education, health care, environmental protection and much more. The state legislature is already under a court order to increase spending for basic education; the education funding crisis would only increase.For now, the tax-cut deal has been set aside as Boeing reviews competing sites for its production and as the union and bosses take a measure of their opposing strengths.Boeing, state politicians and the media want the Machinists to sacrifice to bring their living standards down to a “competitive” level with low-wage labor.  But Machinists are showing growing awareness that the wages and benefits they have long fought for are part of the struggle of all labor. Union wages, good pensions and full medical care are a right and must not be surrendered — especially by a strong union, experienced in the struggle.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
