And especially lately. Even FTSE 100 share prices such as those of HSBC (LSE: HSBA) haven’t escaped the market downturn. The bank’s shares are down 40% over the last 12 months and much of the damage was done before Covid-19.Why is the share price falling?Banks generally have been hit hard recently. Investors in Lloyds, like me, and in Standard Chartered will certainly be feeling the pain. That’s because banks do well in better economic conditions with higher interest rates. The move by countries towards negative interest rates isn’t an ideal situation for bank profitability.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…Alongside the rights customers are being given in reaction to Covid-19 such as mortgage holidays, it’s not a great environment right now for banks. And we know share prices reflect optimism, which is massively lacking.HSBC does though have particular challenges that Lloyds, for example, does not. It’s caught firmly in the crossfire between the US and China. It’s presence and profits depend almost entirely on the latter, hence its decision to back China’s position in Hong Kong.The ongoing feud between the Trump administration and China’s leadership, therefore, was weighing on the share price prior to the latest tensions.As are some of the shenanigans at the top of the bloated bank. The bank fired John Flint and then waited too long to approve the new chief, Noel Quinn, an internal hire. Quinn has a plan to cut huge numbers of staff and shrink the bank. This could make the bank leaner and more profitable, but it’ll take time.What to do about the falling share price?Although I own the shares I don’t have much hope for them in the short term. HSBC’s management has generally not shown itself in a positive light with a lot of posturing and little action.The share price, like other banks’, will be affected by investor feelings about the economy. As a cyclical business, HSBC will struggle during this current turbulent market. The share price is still falling, even as the FTSE 100 recovers.Then thirdly, HSBC will always be vulnerable to tensions between China, which dominates Asia where it makes most of its profits, and the US and the West more generally.For these reasons I’d be inclined to hold the shares if you own them already because there are long-term opportunities from structural growth of Asia. And opportunities for the bank to become a leaner organisation capable of improving margins and profits.However, I wouldn’t be tempted to buy the shares if you don’t own them, despite the 40% share price fall over the last 12 months. There are better shares for growth, or with recovery potential, in the FTSE 100.last_img read more

Episcopales reafirman su compromiso con el medioambiente

first_img Episcopales de la Diócesis de California reunidos debajo de un árbol en Lone Tree Point junto a la costa de East Bay, in Rodeo, California, al nordeste de San Francisco, para la EcoConfirmación del 23 de abril, en la cual los participantes reafirmaron su compromiso con el medioambiente. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Rodeo, California] Tres palabras, tres palabras adicionales, es todo lo que lleva expandir el modo en que los episcopales son llamados a vivir su fe para incluir el cuidado de la Tierra.En la Diócesis Episcopal de California, la quinta y última pregunta del Pacto Bautismal que sigue al Credo de los Apóstoles, dice: ¿Lucharás por la justicia y por la paz entre todos los pueblos y respetarás la dignidad de la Tierra y de todo ser humano?”, La palabra clave, por supuesto, es “Tierra”.“Durante casi todo el tiempo que el obispo ha estado aquí, él nos ha estado recordando en la mayoría de los bautizos y confirmaciones que estamos comprometidos a la reconciliación con Dios, los unos con los otros y con la Tierra”, dijo la Rda. Julia McCray-Goldsmith, canóniga de la diócesis para el discipulado. “Parte de eso es su profundo compromiso con una sana mayordomía de la Tierra; y yo diría con la integridad de nuestra naturaleza encarnada, con nosotros mismos como seres físicos que realmente no pueden separarse de las ecologías humana y natural en que habitamos”.El sábado 23 de abril, al día siguiente del Día de la Tierra, que este año se destacó por la histórica firma del Acuerdo de París —el primer acuerdo internacional del clima que busca reducir la emisión de gases de efecto invernadero y limitar el calentamiento global a menos de 2 grados Celsius—, la Diócesis de California llevó a cabo su tercera EcoConfirmación anual.

Susan Champion, rectora de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo el Señor, en Pinole, conduce a más de 25 participantes en la EcoConfirmación del 23 de abril en un recorrido hasta la mesa de la comunión, en que se detienen a orar en tres puntos a lo largo del trayecto donde la belleza y la degradación se encuentran. Ella y su esposo, el Rdo. Peter Champion, viven en Rodeo.

Susan Champion, rectora de la iglesia episcopal de Cristo el Señor [Christ the Lord Episcopal Church] en el barrio de Pinole, quien vive en Rodeo con su esposo, el Rdo. Peter Champion, y es maestra sustituta en el sistema público de la localidad.Al proponer el sitio, Champion preguntó: ¿Qué pasa si la celebramos [la EcoConfirmación] en un lugar que nos recuerde la degradación humana del medioambiente?”La refinería Phillips 66 es una de las cinco de la zona de la bahía de San Francisco: cuatro de ellas están localizadas en el condado de Costa. Procesa 120.000 barriles diarios. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENSLa refinería Phillips 66 es enorme, y una de las cinco de la zona de la bahía de San Francisco; ha sido objeto de repetidas advertencias por violar las normas de la calidad del aire del estado y está considerada como el séptimo agente contaminador más tóxico de California. No sólo la refinería es gigantesca, sino que está cerca de un proyecto de viviendas público y un programa de aceleración infantil [Head Start]. Muchos residentes, dijo Champion, padecen de asma y de otras enfermedades relacionadas con la calidad del aire.Rodeo es un municipio no constituido, añadió, y por tanto carece de un concejo municipal, sus residentes están representados por un solo hombre en la Junta de Supervisores del condado de Costa. Los medio de prensa locales no incluyen esta refinería, y fue mediante un informe de un cable de la Dow Jones News que publicó el Wall Street Journal a principios de este año que los residentes se enteraron que el malfuncionamiento de un equipo ha causado la liberación de 500 libras de dióxido sulfúrico de la refinería de 120.000 barriles diarios.El oficio comenzó con la Caminata Cósmica, una meditación sobre la historia de la creación a partir del Big Bang hace 14.000 millones de años y la formación de la atmósfera de la Tierra, el surgimiento del homo sapiens, la escritura de la Biblia y el nacimiento de Jesús hasta el descubrimiento del oro en California en 1848 y el petróleo convirtiéndose en una importante industria del estado a principios del siglo XX hasta 1969 cuando los humanos vieron por primera vez la Tierra desde el espacio.Luego, ¿cómo puede la EcoConfirmación recordarles a los episcopales el impacto que los humanos están teniendo en el planeta? “Creo que el uso de la Caminata Cósmica, al recordarnos nuestra profunda interrelación, es importante”, dijo Andrus después del oficio.Miriam MacGillis, de Genesis Farms de Nueva Jersey, creó la Caminata Cósmica como un medio de llevar los 14.000 millones de años de la historia de la Tierra de algo que los humanos saben en sus cabezas a algo que sepan con el corazón. Andrus y su esposa, Shelia, la trajeron a la Diócesis de California poco después de su consagración como obispo hace 10 años.Como Andrus mencionó durante el oficio, el mundo se encuentra en la llamada Era Antropocénica, o la era en que la influencia humana está teniendo un impacto significativo en la geología y los ecosistemas de la Tierra. Reducir conscientemente la influencia humana exigirá un cambio en la manera de pensar de los humanos respecto a cómo se relacionan unos con otros y con los ecosistemas y las economías de que forman parte.“El cambio que tenemos que hacer en este punto es el cambio de ser un mundo donde hay algunos sujetos como los humanos y luego hay muchos objetos, y eso incluiría a los humanos utilizados para el trabajo y la trata [de personas]… donde los humanos se usan como herramientas”, dijo él, luego del oficio. “Básicamente , toda la Tierra ha sido objetivada y ese es un proceso que ha estado pasando en Occidente durante unos 400 años.“De manera que lo que queremos hacer es esforzarnos por salir de eso y entrar en un universo de sujetos. Este es una manera muy inteligible de entender nuestras interrelaciones no sólo de unos con otros, sino con la Tierra y con toda la vida en la Tierra”.Andrus predicó su homilía, confirmó a un hombre y recibió a otro en la Iglesia Episcopal, y la mayoría de las restantes 25 personas se comprometieron nuevamente con Cristo y renovaron el Pacto Bautismal. Luego, Champion condujo al grupo en un recorrido a la mesa de la comunión, deteniéndose para orar en tres puntos, a lo largo del trayecto, donde se encuentran la belleza y la degradación [del medioambiente].En el primer alto, los participantes miraron a la bahía y reconocieron que durante 150 años la gente ha permitido que las sustancias contaminantes entren en sus aguas; en el segundo alto reflexionaron sobre las vías del ferrocarril que han transportado petróleo crudo en vagones mal equipados cuando los precios estaban altos, amenazando la seguridad de los residentes; y finalmente, en lo alto de una cuesta desde donde contemplaron la refinería, la más sucia de California.“Este pedazo de tierra, la primera vez que lo vi me partió el corazón”, dijo McCray-Goldsmith, añadiendo que la tierra misma es como las estaciones de la bendición y el pesar. “Esta tierra es una especie de ventana sacramental, un signo externo y visible y una gracia interna y espiritual que incluye la gracia de las lágrimas, la gracia de la pena por el daño que le hemos hecho a la Tierra… según hemos salido a visitar diversos sitios, esos sitios se han convertido siempre en sacramentos”.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Este Cantor, vicaria de la iglesia episcopal del Buen Pastor, en Berkeley, California, conduce a un asistente regular (detrás de ella) en la Caminata Cósmica para ser recibido en la Iglesia Episcopal durante la ceremonia de EcoConfirmación en Lone Tree Point, Rodeo. El perro del hombre lo sigue en el círculo donde fue recibido por el obispo Marc Andrus. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENSDurante la EcoConfirmación, los participantes reafirman sus promesas bautismales de “amar las maravillosas obras de Dios, y proteger la belleza e integridad de toda la creación”. Como comunidad, se vuelve a comprometer con la Quinta Marca de la Misión la cual postula “luchar por salvaguardar la integridad de la creación y sostener y renovar la vida en la Tierra”.Durante su homilía, el obispo de California Marc Andrus, que representó al obispo primado Michael Curry y a la Iglesia Episcopal en la ceremonia de la firma del acuerdo del clima en la sede de las Naciones Unidas en Nueva York el 22 de abril, reflexionó sobre el significado del día anterior.“A la Iglesia Episcopal y a todo el mundo cristiano, ciertamente a todo el mundo de la fe, se le ofrece esta oportunidad de respaldar a toda la Tierra y la restauración de lo que ha llegado a ser la muy enferma Madre Tierra”, dijo. “Y esta pequeña Tierra, tan frágil, tan hecha a mano en todo sentido y sin embargo tan increíblemente bella para mí, es una semilla que puede ser tan poderosa como la simiente que empezó todo esto. ¿Por qué? Porque es Dios quien comienza a desarrollar la semilla. Es Dios el que da el crecimiento. Dios quien hace la semilla. Dios quien nos bendice con este día”.El Acuerdo de París llama a todas las naciones del mundo a limitar las emisiones de carbono, lo cual exigirá una transición de los combustibles fósiles a fuentes más renovables para responder a sus necesidades energéticas. En su tercera encarnación, en lugar de tener lugar en un lugar de intacta belleza natural, como un centro de retiro en el Condado de Sonoma o en la bahía de la Media Luna, el oficio al aire libre tuvo lugar en Lone Tree Point, a la sombra de una refinería de petróleo en Rodeo, una diversa comunidad de clase obrera en East Bay, a unos 40 kilómetros al nordeste de San Francisco.

The project is a small house in an area of ​​80m2. The site is located on the main road of the village. Urbanization has changed the architecture and living space of this village. New houses with styles that one can easily find in big cities have disrupted their familiar landscape and lifestyle. The house is meant for a married couple over 50 who has been living in this rural area since they were born. In the search of a new appropriate typology for the context, we are convinced that adapting the new architecture based on the traditional cultural lifestyle of the couple is the most important task.Save this picture!Courtesy of TAA DESIGNVegetable garden, playground and connecting space.Connecting with nature, daily activities are gardening, paddy drying, etc. Vegetable gardens and multi-purpose playgrounds become the soul of houses in this village. In a small site, the ground floor needs a lot of complex functions, including bicycle repair space, living room, kitchen, traditional outdoor wood stove, bedrooms, toilets, paddy drying yards, rice warehouse, chicken yard, etc. We proposed small courtyards in the front, middle and back of the house, to connect indoor spaces with nature. Instead of having a large yard like other houses in the village, we create many courtyards with different heights, suitable for the height of the house structure. On the mezzanine floor, there is a small yard connected to the yard in the middle of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of TAA DESIGNSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!Courtesy of TAA DESIGNThe rooftop garden is adjacent to the courtyard of the mezzanine floor, creating a playground & vegetable garden that connects from the roof to the ground floor. The products from the garden go directly to everyday meals, fresh and always available. The couple has happy hours together growing their own food, and a lot of times, sharing their products with the neighbor families, unexpectedly, the architecture has been generating community social interactions as its by-product. The rooftop garden also has the role of insulating the house. The internal temperature is significantly reduced compared to the corrugated steel roof.Save this picture!Courtesy of TAA DESIGNRural architectural typology. In Vietnamese traditional landscape, “the red roof” house represented for a time of regional local architecture. However, now new multi-story houses with steel roofs seem to have lost the identity of the village landscape. The stair-step method reduces the height of the façade, helps urban space is not overwhelmed and creates a comfortable slope. This establishes the communication between the space on the roof and the space under the road. “The red roof” has the intent to keep, store and remind the familiar rural lifestyle.Save this picture!Courtesy of TAA DESIGNProject gallerySee allShow lessChimneys, Overhangs and Anchors: The Architecture of Climbing GymsArticles3XN, B+H and Zhubo Win Competition to Design the New Shenzhen Natural History MuseumArchitecture News Share Area:  190 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project The Red Roof / TAA DESIGN “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeTAA DESIGNOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIcebergOn FacebookVietnamPublished on November 26, 2020Cite: “The Red Roof / TAA DESIGN” 26 Nov 2020.

New Report Exposes Discriminatory Auto Insurance Pricing

first_img Twitter New Report Exposes Discriminatory Auto Insurance Pricing Previous articleIn Israel and beyond, virus vaccines bring political powerNext articleJuniper Research: Smart Traffic Management to Significantly Reduce Congestion and Emissions; Saving Cities $277 Billion by 2025 Digital AIM Web Support WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– A new consumer report exposes the harmful effect of a credit score-based auto insurance system on millions of consumers, particularly communities of color. Released today by app-based car insurer Root Insurance, Credit Scores and Car Insurance: How unfair pricing practices discriminate against millions of drivers, illustrates how discriminatory pricing practices employed by the industry today force historically underserved communities to pay more for car insurance. This report is the culmination of a national survey of 1,003 U.S. adults and in-depth discussions with consumers, academic experts, and industry stakeholders. Among its top findings, the report shows:66% of the general American population are not aware that credit score is a factor in auto insurance calculations, including 74% of those with lower credit and 70% or Hispanic/Latinx people. However, once aware of this practice, more than half (63%) agree that using credit score to price car insurance is completely unfair.82% of Americans expect premiums to be based on driving record; just 6% think credit score should be an important factor.35% of Americans are unable to afford essentials because of their premiums.Those with poor or average credit are 2.2 times more likely than those with a good credit score to say they have a difficult time applying for and purchasing car insurance. “Ultimately, a person’s credit score isn’t a good measure of their driving behavior,” says Alex Timm, co-founder and CEO of Root Insurance. “With efforts to combat systemic discrimination picking up steam in Washington, DC and state capitols across the country, eliminating credit-based pricing in auto insurance would be an important step towards creating a fairer system for millions of Americans and save drivers money.” “We’re at a pivotal point where things are going to be different,” saidDr. Jerome Williams, Rutgers University Distinguished Professor. “Companies that continue to exploit and treat consumers unfairly, will eventually see consumers start to exit and voice their concerns. It’s going to hurt the company, and sometimes it will hurt the company so much that it’s tough to turn it around.” Despite the near-universal reliance on cars, nearly two-thirds of Americans aren’t even aware that their credit score is a factor in auto insurance or how it may discriminate against them. The report explains how credit scores determined through factors such as credit history and usage, disproportionately hurts underserved communities including immigrants, those with large medical bills, and communities of color. Given that drivers with lower credit scores can pay up to $1,500 more in average annual premiums, this practice only widens the wealth gap and perpetuates systemic inequities embedded in society. “It’s just life things like rent, food and gas—and yes, car insurance…that are hard to keep up,” said Daniela, a 24-year-old mother in Washington D.C. who continues to struggle with poor credit caused by her first credit card when she was 18. With 35% no longer able to afford to pay for car insurance because of the pandemic, the report points to the need for urgent industry-wide change. Calling on the industry and policymakers to phase out credit scores from pricing decision-making, the report points to reform efforts already underway across the country, most notably in Washington State, where legislation to end the practice of using credit score in determining rates has been introduced as well as Root’s own pledge to eliminate credit scores as a factor in its car insurance pricing model. “If I could pay less for car insurance, I could put that money toward my business. And if (my business) grows, I could put more money back toward my health,” said Shawna, a 27-year-old business-owner living with diabetes who reports skipping doses of insulin to afford necessities like car insurance.
