“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images Eurasia Mining (LSE:EUA) is a highly attractive palladium, platinum, and gold producer. With the price of precious metals enjoying a surge, does this mean Eurasia is a good stock to buy? Miners are risky, no matter how favourable the underlying assets, and this one particularly so. The Eurasia share price has soared 487% year-to-date. Despite this I think Glencore is a preferred growth stock to buy.Has optimism skewed the share price?The Eurasia share price was suspended at 7.2p between February and July. This was because of social media speculation of a potential takeover. Since resuming trading on AIM, its share price has shot up above 22p. This week, Eurasia obtained a new licence to explore for platinum next to one of its existing assets. The share price rise is based on two key factors. One, the company is for sale, and two, the price of platinum and other precious metals is rising. However, there are no guarantees it will find a buyer. Geopolitical tensions are running high, Covid-19 is wreaking havoc, and it is not an ideal time to be selling up.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…In its results for 2019, Eurasia posted a pre-tax loss of £796,268, which was an improvement on the year before. In April it confirmed it was in a debt-free position, with cash above $0.5m and $1m in credit available. This, along with its producing assets, shows it has something to offer. The recent share price hike may have already priced the positive speculation in.The company now has a £600m market cap, but if a low-ball offer is accepted, many shareholders will be out of pocket. Unfortunately, I think investors looking to cash in on a big share price rise at Eurasia have probably missed the boat.Can this FTSE 100 faller rise again?Glencore (LSE:GLEN), on the other hand, does not seem to have much going for it at first glance. Its share price has taken a beating since 2018 and it is struggling against a backdrop of geopolitical and pandemic challenges. Nevertheless, I think it has promise.Worldwide lockdowns have reduced demand for many products, including electric cars, which means the elements used to make them, such as nickel, are also seeing a reduction in demand. This has led Glencore to cut its full-year guidance for production of nickel and coal, although it left its guidance for copper, cobalt, zinc, and ferrochrome unchanged.The thing is, the world is changing fast, particularly in its use of electric vehicles, and when we recover from the pandemic, demand will return. At nearly 50 years old, Glencore is an established multinational commodity trading and mining company with a diverse portfolio of natural resources and market cap of £22bn. It cancelled its dividend for this year and earnings per share are negative, but it is focussing on paying down debt and undergoing a major restructuring.The FTSE 100 slid at the end of the week, bringing most stocks down with it. I think stock market volatility is to be expected until the pandemic is resolved, therefore focussing on the future is key in a long-term investor’s approach to investing. With that in mind, I think Swiss mining giant Glencore looks like a good addition to a value investor’s portfolio.

Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ By Amy SowderPosted Oct 17, 2017 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Episcopal Relief & Development, Associate Rector Columbus, GA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Director of Music Morristown, NJ The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC A message written on top of a building is seen from the air during recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria near Humacao, Puerto Rico on Oct. 11. Photo: Reuters/Lucas Jackson[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal clergy and congregation members are resuming church services and school classes when they can and how they can, despite the vast devastation in Puerto Rico almost a month after Hurricane Maria swept through Sept. 20.It was the strongest storm the island has faced since before the Great Depression, a Category 4 hurricane that spewed up to 40 inches of rain in some places in one day, whereas Houston, Texas, saw 32 inches in three days from Hurricane Harvey in late August, according to the Weather Channel and the National Hurricane Center.Almost a month after Maria, Puerto Ricans are still in crisis mode.Forty-five deaths have been reported so far related to the storm, and residents in the northern part of the island have no clean water to drink so they are drinking contaminated water from nearby rivers, according to Episcopal Relief & Development. About 90 percent of the island was still without electricity as of Oct. 11, three weeks after Maria hit. In comparison, 22 percent of the homes and businesses on the Virgin Islands are without power from Maria.“The lives of so many people have been turned upside down,” said Abagail Nelson, Episcopal Relief & Development’s senior vice president of programs, in the latest Hurricane Maria report. “This is a humanitarian crisis that will affect many people in the years to come.”A wooden cross is seen on the door of a home damaged by Hurricane Maria near the municipality of Morovis, outside San Juan, Puerto Rico, Oct. 10. Photo: Reuters/Shannon StapletonCoordinating donations with local agencies to get basic supplies to those who most need it is a logistics challenge that Episcopal Relief & Development is working on daily, along with many others. Volunteers are organizing shipments of water and food to residents of Maricao, Ponce and other remote areas. The organization is planning on supplying water-purification systems to those isolated communities.Communication is still dicey and is expected to remain that way for several more months. Satellite phones are helping diocesan members communicate with each other, church partners, emergency services and communities.Social media has been the most reliable way to communicate. The Episcopal Cathedral School in San Juan closed like most institutions, and parents didn’t have to pay September fees. The K-12 school reopened for classes Oct. 10 and restarted its after-school program Oct. 16. Like most places, the school still has no electrical power, so students are advised to bring, if they can, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, bottled water and insect repellent spray. They are allowed to wear Bermuda-style pants and sleeveless shirts and will have no tests and limited homework for the time being.Also on Oct. 16, the school counselor announced that college admission deadlines have been extended for both Puerto Rico and mainland U.S. colleges. “I hope that this serves as a means of reassurance that we will continue to have a successful academic year,” said Karen Santiago Garcia, guidance counselor.On Oct. 15, the Rt. Rev. Rafael Morales Maldonado, bishop of the Diocese of Puerto Rico, celebrated Holy Eucharist at Misión San Gabriel Arcángel in Humacao on the east side of the island.The Rt. Rev. Rafael Morales Maldonado, bishop of the Diocese of Puerto Rico, leads church members in an Oct. 15 celebration of Holy Eucharist at Misión San Gabriel Arcángel in Humacao on the east side of the island. Photo: the Rt. Rev. Rafael Morales Maldonado via Facebook“We cry and laugh together. We discovered the strength of the Lord in our new project to lift and build,” Morales said in a Facebook post, as translated by the social media site.The bishop has been working with Xavier Castellanos, the Episcopal Relief & Development representative who’s onsite to lend his expertise, to mobilize church partners as they continue to assess the needs of different areas of the island and especially to send help and food to the more remote mountainous regions. The organization sent emergency support in advance of Hurricane Maria in order to help the diocese provide assistance quickly.Meanwhile, back in the continental United States, people with family and friends in Puerto Rico are still worrying about them.The Rev. Gladys Rodriguez of Church of the Incarnation in Oviedo, Florida, has been able to speak only briefly a few times with her husband, Victor Rivera Gonzalez, who is in Puerto Rico. They have homes in both places, and before the storm, she would travel back and forth. Their house in the Guaynabo area of the island is made of cement and held up well, but their roof is damaged. Victor Gonzalez had stocked up on water and has been able to share it with neighbors. “He has been eating canned food. He has no electricity. There is no communication with the center of the island,” Gladys Rodriguez said in an email.One of Rodriguez’s church members in Florida lost contact with a relative in Ponce who needed supplies. Eventually, the relative found someone to drive through the hazardous roads to help her. “Everyone is in desperate need for cash, water, electricity, food and medicines,” Rodriguez said. When air travel becomes easier, probably by the end of October, her husband plans to fly to her in Oviedo.Lynn Hendricks, president of the National Altar Guild Association based in Birmingham, Alabama, built Eucharist kits for Puerto Rico. One of her fellow church members planned to fly his plane to the island to deliver generators, water and other supplies for the relief effort and offered to take the kits along.“He said transportation is a problem on the island, and he was being met so wasn’t sure if he would be able to deliver them personally, but he would see the diocese was contacted and told where they could pick them up if he wasn’t able to hand deliver them,” Hendricks said in an email to Episcopal News Service.Misión San Gabriel Arcángel in Humacao, southeast of San Juan and near the eastern coast, hosted services for Episcopalians on Oct. 15. Photo: the Rt. Rev. Rafael Morales Maldonado via FacebookThe Rt. Rev. Andrew M L Dietsche, bishop of New York, held a service for the victims of natural disasters in the Caribbean and Mexico on Oct. 7, at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine. The hurricane that ravaged Puerto Rico was one the latest in a series of natural disasters that have, in just over a month, unleashed “unspeakable ruin upon Texas, Florida, the Caribbean (especially the Virgin Islands and Cuba), Mexico, and now Puerto Rico,” Dietsche said in his advance announcement of the service.“Countless people in our diocese have been personally affected by these storms. Indeed, members of my own staff have lived through harrowing days in the last week waiting for word from missing family members,” he said. “I know that they represent thousands of New Yorkers who have carried the same fears for those they love.”People can help by donating to Episcopal Relief & Development’s Hurricane Relief Fund, which will help partners reach the vulnerable communities devastated by the recent tropical storms.— Amy Sowder is a special correspondent for the Episcopal News Service.

WPNC proposed that the best way to allow supporters and potential donors to understand the difference their gift can make was to give sponsored children the chance not just to appear in the ad, but also to help plan and film it.WPNC’s Director of TV & Film, Maria Phillips, explained: “Giving children a voice is a core value for Plan International UK. We believe letting the kids own the ad is a first for the charity sector. Seeing the work that money raised can be used for, through the children’s eyes, has created what we hope is a feel-good, authentic campaign.”A team of six people from WPNC and Plan International UK spent just over a week in the village in Ghana. They took documentary-style approach to filming to capture a variety of footage, from scenes in the local community, to the children’s own stories, and interviews with Plan International UK staff that the youngsters conducted. All of this footage will be used as part of an ongoing digital content strategy extending beyond the initial campaign.The team worked with a group of children, predominantly girls aged five to 14, to script and shoot footage for the ad and digital campaign. They initially took part in a planning workshop to discuss how the ad would look, and were then given handheld video cameras to capture scenes in the village and in their homes.In the ad, the children explain how sponsorship has improved the village school, water supply and health provision. It ends with the serious message that many children still need help. There is a call to action with a number for viewers to text for a callback outlining in-depth information about sponsorship, and encouragement for people to go online to find out more about the children involved in the ad.The camera equipment used on the shoot has been left with Plan Ghana employees to allow children to continue to take footage for future executions.

While they were continuing to play well defensively, the Horned Frogs started to dominate on the offensive side as well, led by middle blocker Katie Clark.TCU would follow small runs by Kansas with bigger runs of their own. Finishing the set on a 7-3 run, the Horned Frogs won the second set 25-19 to take a 2-0 lead in the match.Kramer attributed the offensive success to finally having her intended starting seven healthy.Clark poured in six kills in the second set alone. The first-year would finish with 11 kills to go with a .421 hitting percentage in the match.The Jayhawks could not handle the firepower of outside hitter élan McCall in the third set, and the Frogs led by as much as six at one point as they cruised to a 25-16 victory.McCall recorded eight kills and a .636 hitting clip in the third set, propelling TCU to a 25-16 win and their first-ever sweep of Kansas.élan McCall has been nothing short of impressive for TCU this season. Captured by Cristian Argueta SotoMcCall finished with 16 kills and 16 digs, good for her third-straight double-double. This was her fourth match back after missing six-straight matches with an injury.“When I was out, it was hard to watch, you know, because I just always want to be out there with my team,” said McCall. “I think everyone’s just happy that I’m back out there and can light a fire in everyone.”Though she had not been very effective on offense, outside hitter Anna Walsh had still made her presence known with three blocks on the day.“We were observant on what the other side was doing,” said McCall. “We knew who was in and where we needed to be defensively.”The Frogs will finish the regular season Wednesday, Nov. 21, against Kansas State at home.“We really want our seniors to go out with a bang,” said Kramer. “It gives us one more chance this season to play some great volleyball together and get better.” Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award

The show was put on to raise money and bring awareness to the LGBTQIA+ community.This year, Roach and her organizing team have a bigger goal in mind. “We hope to facilitate a LGBTQIA+ inclusive space, as there are few spaces or opportunities on campus or within Fort Worth that are intentionally LGBTQIA+ inclusive,” Roach said. “We hope to facilitate a space where those who are not typically in LGBTQIA+ spaces can feel welcome and partake in as well as enjoy a part of queer culture.” In addition, the organizers of A Night of Drag hope to raise funds for a wonderful youth organization here in Fort Worth, LGBTQ S.A.V.E.S. The organization promotes supportive learning environments and offers resources to youth and their families, according to their webpage.Spectrum organizes an event in front of Frog Fountain.

Spectrum has “facilitated a safe-sex talk and rapid testing, blood drive exclusionary awareness, and participated in the Fort Worth pride parade.”While they don’t have anything in the books after A Night of Drag, the organization plans on being involved in events in the future, Roach said.

News Iran is stepping up pressure on journalists, including foreign journalists, in run-up to election RSF_en Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Help by sharing this information Shortly after Revolutionary Guard plainclothesmen arrested four journalists at their homes and took them to an unknown location on 2 November, the Revolutionary Guard news agencies Tasnim and Fars reported the arrests of “members of an illegal network linked with the governments of the US and Britain who were active in Iranian media.”The arrests follow several recent addresses by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, including one on 16 September to Revolutionary Guard commanders, in which he warned against “political and cultural” infiltration by the United States.The four journalists arrested on 2 November were Afarine Chitsaz of the daily Iran, Ehssan Mazandarani, the editor of the daily Farhikhteghan, Saman Safarzai of the monthly Andisher Poya and Issa Saharkhiz, a well-known independent journalist who used to edit several reformist newspapers. Although there has been no official statement about their arrests, Revolutionary Guard media outlets such as the Tasnim and Fars news agencies and the national radio and TV broadcaster reported their arrests before they were confirmed by the families.In their reports, these media outlets referred to their previous arrests in 2009 and said the charges against them included “implication in an enemy infiltration plan,” “activities against national security” and “relations with foreign journalists.”This is not the first time that Iranian journalists have been the victims of the Supreme Leader’s paranoia and in-fighting among the ruling elite’s various factions. In April 2000, Khamenei ordered a crackdown on the reformist press that emerged after Mohammad Khatami’s election as president in 1997. Since then, more than 300 media outlets have been closed after being branded as “the operational base of foreign enemies within the country,” thousands of websites have been censored and more than 500 journalists and Internet activists have been arbitrarily arrested, tortured and given long jail sentences.Such paranoid discoveries of “spies” and “espionage networks” occur with tragically comic regularity in the run-up to elections.The Iranian authorities, especially the Supreme Leader, must stop these flagrant violations of freedom of information, which contravene article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Iran is party.
