Finding winners on a day like March 12 was a matter of seeing who had lost the least. And yet one under-the-radar AIM share leapt by 23%. Why?Get smartGlasgow tech firm Smart Metering Systems (LSE:SMS) pushed through the £291m sale of a portion of its energy smart meter assets. After expenses, the sale will produce net cash of £282m, SMS told the market.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…Revealing a substantially stronger balance sheet at a time of crisis in wider markets? Solid move.CEO Alan Foy said the sale “realises considerable cash returns and demonstrates the substantial value of our smart meter portfolio.”Smart Metering then hiked its dividend far beyond previous metrics. “It will also enable us to enhance greatly shareholder value with significant and sustainable increase in dividends,” Foy added.The revised dividend policy puts a loyalty bonus of 25p per share in shareholders’ hands. Payments are intended to increase in line with RPI until 2024. At current share prices around 560p, that represents a healthy 4.6% yield.A total capital restructure away from expensive debt and into solid cash looks to me like good decision-making. Dividend cover has never fallen below three times earnings since 2014 and at times has been substantially higher.Long runway for growthAccording to figures from the National Audit Office quoted by the BBC, an average of 1.7m smart meters have been installed every year since 2012.In September 2019, the UK government pushed back the deadline to 2024 for the rollout to offer smart energy meters to every home in Britain. Previously suppliers had until the end of 2020.Clearly that is significant new headroom for companies like SMS. This more even spread “enables [us] to manage [our] cost base more effectively,” Foy noted.The company said its order book of another 2 million smart meters was expected to add £40m to its recurring revenue. And the board said it intends to maintain a prudent net debt-to-earnings ratio throughout the rollout.Resulting gainsBeing in business for 25 years makes SMS the UK’s largest integrated installer for independent energy suppliers.Its 2019 full-year results released in January saw SMS’s performance being in line with expectations. There was nothing too flashy in there. Recurring revenue grew 20% to £90.1m. And its portfolio grew 44% to 1.21m smart meters.Meter recurring revenue grew by 23% to £77.8m, while data recurring revenue was £12.3m. Recurring meter revenue from smart meters was £38m with £18.6m added from traditional domestic meters.Long termThe benefit of very strong order book visibility over the medium term can’t be underestimated. Not at times like these.I can’t see how Smart Metering Systems will be impacted in the long term by the spread of coronavirus. That’s probably a good sign. And the fact that its revenue is rising while it has paid off existing debt and hiked its dividend? Doubly good.And the stated intent to manage the business with strong cost discipline and an efficient long-term capital structure? Even better.With oil prices cratering prices not seen since the 1991 Gulf War, those companies focused on the UK’s rapid move to a decarbonised energy society are poised to profit, I feel.SMS has all the attributes of a strong buy to me and is going straight on my watchlist. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’d buy this stock that shot up 23% while markets crashed Enter Your Email Address Tom Rodgers | Friday, 13th March, 2020 | More on: SMS center_img Tom Rodgers has no current position in Smart Metering Systems.

France relieved to overcome Ireland hurdle

first_imgDUBLIN, IRELAND – FEBRUARY 13: Thierry Dusautoir of France passes the ball during the RBS 6 Nations match between Ireland and France at the Aviva Stadium on February 13, 2011 in Dublin, Ireland. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images FRANCE KEPT their cool to achieve victory over Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on Sunday, but coach Marc Lièvremont admitted that he experienced “moments of absolute panic” as they fought to suppress the home side’s comeback in the dying minutes of the match.Ireland put in an improved performance from the one that saw them defeat Italy the previous weekend, and they put the visitors under pressure for the full 80 minutes. Jamie Heaslip’s try in the 68th minute took the score to 22-25, and Keith Earls’s chip deep into France’s half gave the home fans hope that there may yet be another score in Ireland’s locker still to come. But France’s desperate defence held firm and a second last minute victory in as many weeks was not to be.Marc Lièvremont praised his players’ spirit and composure as they fought to shut Ireland out, but said there are still plenty of improvements that need to come from his team. “There were lots of good moments, but we weren’t well paced, and they put pressure on us for the full 80 minutes, as well as scoring two tries against us,” said Lièvremont.“The match ended with a very dangerous situation for us and the final scrum was very stressful, but we were able to control it. The Irish could have won, but we managed to come through in the end.” Lièvremont is already thinking about their next game – France head to Twickenham to take on England – despite the two-week break. England are the only other unbeaten side in the championship and are enjoying some great form, and Lièvremont said: “I already have a headache looking towards England. They’re looking confident and have great physicality as well as acceleration. They’re ahead of everyone else.”Ireland head to Murrayfield next to take on winless Scotland in a game they must look to win to regain their confidence, and keep their hopes of winning the tournament alive. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Captain Thierry Dusautoir admitted that the team hadn’t always responded well to the pressure they came under at the Aviva Stadium today. Ireland’s first try and second try-scoring chance came after just five minutes of play,  but he praised the composure of the team, dispelling any thoughts of an unhappy French camp.” The message from the first 10 minutes was that we needed to react immediately,” said Dusautoir. “Our game management would only score 5/10, but our spirit would score 10/10. We didn’t respond well to the pressure of the situation at the start of the game, but the solidarity within the team is certainly a positive we can take from this game.”last_img read more

Episcopal churches host COVID-19 vaccination clinics as nationwide effort ramps…

first_imgEpiscopal churches host COVID-19 vaccination clinics as nationwide effort ramps up Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in the Bronx borough of New York City opened its doors to COVID-19 vaccination clinics in January and February. At least 15 members of the congregation have died in the past year after contracting the coronavirus. Photo: Pierre-Andre Duvert[Episcopal News Service] The surge in COVID-19 cases at the start of the pandemic a year ago hit the New York City area hard, with emergency rooms filled to capacity and the death toll rising. Among the city’s dead were at least 15 members of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, a large congregation of African American and Black immigrant families in the Bronx.“We know the impact, the negative impact of the pandemic,” the Rev. Pierre-Andre Duvert, the church’s rector, told ENS this week as the world marked one year since the pandemic was first declared.Many of those who got sick from the coronavirus were longtime members and lay leaders at St. Luke’s. Now, with vaccination efforts ramping up across the United States, St. Luke’s and other Episcopal churches are joining other faith-based organizations in offering their facilities as vaccination sites.President Joe Biden, in a prime-time address on March 11, announced that vaccinations should be made available to all Americans who want them starting May 1, with the goal of some return to normal life by July 4. Face masks, social distancing and hand sanitizer are still recommended to help limit the virus’ spread.“Just as we were emerging from a dark winter into a hopeful spring and summer is not the time to not stick with the rules,” Biden said. “This is not the time to let up.”Parish leaders and other members of St. Luke’s got their vaccinations along with local residents at the vaccination clinics hosted at the church on Jan. 25 and Feb. 16. Duvert, who was among them, said he thinks offering the church as a host site helped send a message that community members need not fear the vaccinations.“We are not asking them to submit themselves to something we are not willing to do,” he said. “If we knew it was something unsafe, we wouldn’t be taking it.”Given COVID-19’s heavy toll on St. Luke’s, the congregation is happy to be part of bringing an end to the pandemic, though that sense of mission is driven by more than the tragedies suffered by church members, Duvert said. “St. Luke’s is a church that serves the community, and even if our congregation was not affected, we would still extend ourselves because that’s what we do.”Other Episcopal congregations feel a similar sense of mission calling them to assist vaccination efforts.On March 10, the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, teamed up with Main Line Health to host a daylong vaccination clinic at the church, “to encourage communities of color to receive the vaccine following instances in history of racism, disparity and inequity within the health care system,” according to a news release.The Diocese of Pennsylvania also is hosting a clinic for diocesan clergy and other essential workers on March 13 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Philadelphia.Last month, about 500 people received their vaccinations in a makeshift clinic set up in the parking lot of Iglesia Episcopal Jesus de Nazaret in Azalea Park, just east of Orlando, Florida. “Our church has too many COVID funerals,” the Rev. Jose Rodriguez told WFTV-TV. “We’ve had too many parishioners get sick.”The Diocese of Texas’ St. Vincent’s House hosts a COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Feb. 11. Photo: Diocese of TexasIn Galveston, Texas, the Diocese of Texas’ St. Vincent’s House hosted a Feb. 11 clinic at which nearly 100 people got their COVID-19 vaccinations. Also last month, Old North Church in Boston, Massachusetts, opened its doors to neighbors looking to get their shots while sitting in the church’s historic pews.Such clinics, coupled with similar outreach by ecumenical partners, aim to offer faith-based support for the American vaccination effort, which this month is averaging more than 2 million doses a day, according to data tracked by the New York Times. About 64 million people have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination, or nearly 20% of the U.S. population.Churches also have assisted community members, especially older Americans, in navigating the country’s patchwork of vaccine appointment systems. And they have paid special attention to the needs of communities of color, which have faced greater challenges in accessing the vaccinations than white Americans.“We must not leave anyone behind,” the Rev. Kenneth Keke told Religion News Service. Keke is pastor of St. Brigid Catholic Church in Los Angeles, California, a Black and Latino parish that is participating in a two-day pilot project this week to vaccinate 600 people living within two miles of the church.“We have to change the story that Blacks and Latinos can’t access the vaccine,” Keke said.St. Luke’s in New York is doing its part to change that story. It previously served as a COVID-19 testing site, so when vaccinations became available, public health officials asked the congregation to participate in that campaign as well.“We want to get as many inoculated as possible,” Duvert said.He recalled that earlier in the pandemic his assistant spent time in the hospital for treatment of COVID-19, as did one of the church’s wardens and other parish leaders. The congregation was dealt an even heavier blow by the death of Donald Bookal, a longtime church member who was well known in the community.Bookal fell ill in March 2020, Duvert said, just as churches and other public gathering spaces were beginning to shut down. Duvert calls Bookal’s funeral the most difficult he’s had to officiate as a priest, made tougher by the constraints on large gatherings.“We were only allowed to go with a few selected members of the family at the gravesite,” Duvert said. If not for the pandemic, “it would have been a packed church and a celebration of his life, but we never got a chance to do that.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

The other 2018 midterm wave: A historic 10-point jump in turnout…

first_img Mama Mia By Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg, Director, Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement in the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life, Tufts University and first published on theconversation.com.Voter turnout among 18 to 29-year-olds in the 2018 midterm elections was 31 percent, according to a preliminary estimate by The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University.That’s the highest youth turnout my colleagues and I have observed since we started collecting data in 1994. It’s also a major increase from turnout in the 2014 midterms, which was 21 percent.Young people showed decisive support for liberal candidates and ideas. About 67 percent of young people supported Democratic House candidates, compared to just 32 percent for Republican candidates. This 35-point gap is even larger than their preference toward Democrats in 2008, when President Barack Obama was first elected.This preference no doubt helped some Democratic candidates in states such as Wisconsin, Montana and Nevada.For example, Senator Jon Tester of Montana won his reelection by a narrow margin of less than 6,000 votes. Young Montanans, by favoring him by 67 percent to 28 percent, gave him a relative vote advantage of over 25,000 votes. If young Montanans voted like older Montanans did on Tuesday, Montana would have a Republican Senator today.In many ways, this election cycle showed how different groups can create diverse paths to political engagement. It shows in the numbers, and importantly, in young people’s faces. Young people should be feeling powerful and hopeful that they can in fact exercise their votes to affect American politics.Going back 40 years, young voters have a reputation of not showing up to the polls, especially in midterm elections. So how do we explain this year’s enthusiasm?This fall, my colleagues and I conducted two large-scale national surveys of 2,087 Americans ages 18 to 24 to document and understand what Gen Zs are thinking, feeling and doing when it comes to politics.Here’s what we found.All signs pointed to wave of young peopleThe proportion of young people who joined protests and marches tripled since the fall of 2016, from 5 percent to 15 percent. Participation was especially high among young people who are registered as Democrats.We also found that young people were paying attention to politics more than they had in 2016. In 2016, about 26 percent of young people said they were paying at least some attention to the November elections. This fall, the proportion of youth who reported that they were paying attention to the midterm races rose to 46 percent.It’s clear that more young people were actively engaged in politics this year than 2016.Why?Cynicism and worry aren’t obstaclesTo learn more about what might was motivating Generation Z to vote, we asked survey participants to rate their level of agreement with three statements.“I worry that older generations haven’t thought about young people’s future.”“I’m more cynical about politics than I was 2 years ago.”“The outcomes of the 2018 elections will make a significant impact to everyday issues involving the government in my community, such as schools and police.”In this year’s survey, we found that young people who felt cynical were far more likely to say they would vote. Other research has found that cynicism about politics can suppress or drive electoral engagement depending on the contexts.Among young people who said “yes” to all three of those questions, more than half – 52 percent – said they were extremely likely to vote. Among young people who said “no” to all three of those questions, only 22 percent were extremely likely to vote.Our poll results suggest political involvement in this generation is far above the levels we usually see among youth, especially in midterm election cycles.In fact, almost 3 out of 4 youth – 72 percent – said they believe that dramatic change could occur in this country if people banded together.This year’s voting surge by young people did not happen overnight. Nor was it driven by a single issue like gun violence, though Parkland no doubt played a very important role by activating many young people and voter engagement groups.Our research shows that Gen Z is aware of the challenges ahead and they are hopeful and actively involving themselves and friends in politics. Beyond almost any doubt, young people have gotten involved and felt ready to make a change in American politics – and so they did. The Anatomy of Fear LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply November 11, 2018 at 3:14 pm Mama Mia Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here Reply Young people are seeing what is happening to our country with all the violence, and the violence that is happening in their schools, universities, and workplaces. They want to have a voice, and make a difference for a better world. However, what I wonder is, what the youthful voters think when they witness what is happening right here in Florida, with this election fiasco. It is ridiculous that Governor Rick Scott declared himself the winner in the Florida Senate race, way before the votes were all counted, then started acting victorious, with his grins and smirks, along with his family members too, acting the same way, then proceeded to claim that extra votes were coming out of nowhere, that were changing the numbers away from his favor. Also the governor proceeding to make light of Senator Bill Nelson with his innuendoes. The next day or so, we saw the “angry man”, Rick Scott, and he started claiming he wasn’t going to let rag tag lawyers from DC, and liberals STEAL the election! The votes had not been all counted! What a cry-baby! No candidate should be allowed to declare their own self a winner in any election, before ALL the votes are tallied, and officially certified! Especially someone in his positon of power, as governor of Florida! Now who in reality is trying to steal the election? Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Think I will run for elected office for some position, and just as soon as the polls close, and I get to my campaign victory party headquarters, I will declare myself the ultimate winner of the race, and when the votes start coming in, I will howl foul, and fraud, because I personally know all the votes are for Mama Mia, and I will get in front of the media cameras, and tell them about these awful supervisor of election officials, and their incompetence, trying to steal my seat, and steal my thunder, and I will tell them that there is just all these fraudulent votes pouring in out of the woodwork! I will then go get my choice for my personal lawyer, Michael Avenattti, if he isn’t too busy, and I will bring in the rag tag liberal activists and get Judge Judy on my side, and have her make a ruling that the officials have 5 minutes to get all the votes counted, or cease and desist, forever and ever…AMEN LOLcenter_img November 11, 2018 at 3:09 pm Reply November 9, 2018 at 6:11 pm Reply Okay, 266 mail- in- ballots were located tucked away in a mail room at an Opa-locka mail facility. They did not arrive by seven o’clock election day, so they are saying they won’t be counted, or counted in the recount. How is that the supervisor of election’s fault? How is this fair to the voters? Who knows if the majority of those votes were Republican or Democrat, or whatever? This is exactly why I don’t vote by mail. Too much chance for fraud! If a person is unable to get around good, ill, in the hospital, or out of state, or out of the country, such as the military people, I get it, voting by mail, but if someone is relatively healthy enough to go to the polls, and they have transportation, why risk voting by mail? Reply An automatic recount of all the votes is mandatory, within certain percentages in close race results. Also, if it is super close, in the results, it has to be hand-counted, and that takes a lot of time, sometimes days or weeks even. This automatic recount system all sounds fair and logical, however, some of the candidates in these close races have jumped, and filed lawsuits out of desperation, afraid they will lose. And in the case of Rick Scott’s lawsuit he filed, it was ruled on by a lady judge that Broward County has to have all their votes counted by seven o’clock tonight, instead of twelve o’clock tomorrow at noon, like all the other counties. That is a difference of 17 hours, by my calculations, so how many votes in Broward County won’t get hand counted, due to the fact that election supervisor won’t have as much time to get them all counted as the other counties. The Broward Supervisor of Elections has been working hard getting them counted, but it takes time, but Rick Scott alleges incompetence in the Broward supervisor’s office, and Democratic leaning Palm Beach County Supervisor of Election Office too. Mighty strange that Broward County is heavily Democratic, but this one county is not allowed as much time, as other counties to count their votes. The other counties have an extra 17 hours… Isn’t that something!? This ruling by the lady judge is very unfair and un-American, IMO! I certainly have a strong opinion of what is really going on in this election result fiasco! Not the first time Florida has been left in limbo with the election results, and alleged “stolen election”. Now it is not just Florida, but highly questionable results in Georgia’s governor’s race too. It is shameful, that is what it is! I think a charge of OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE should be in order for anybody that tries to keep the votes from being ALL counted, especially anyone in elected office with high power! Trying to snuff out the voter’s will! The votes aren’t coming out of the woodwork, they just haven’t all been counted….how ridiculous, anyone can see that the results will keep changing, as the votes are tallied, that has a brain. Mama Mia Governor Rick Scott has gotten 7,500 volunteers lined up to monitor the recounts all across the state, at all the supervisor of election offices…..wow, and he has already called for an FDLE investigation… I am actually surprised the governor didn’t use his power to call in the state’s National Guard to guard the votes being counted…LOL November 9, 2018 at 7:12 pm Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply You have entered an incorrect email address!

TDA and charities explore new legacy approaches

This may require charities to do more to show people what’s in it for them and the families they will leave behind.“As well as quantitative research we will be exploring potential legacy messages qualitatively. This will help to show whether different generations respond in different ways, or whether supporters of animal charities respond differently to those who support children’s or overseas charities,” says Burrows.Alasdair Akass, Legacy Development Manager at the National Trust, said: “One of the areas we’re keen to understand better is how we should speak to legacy prospects – what tone of voice should we use and how do we cover family issues. The beauty of the TDA research consortium is its size, each charity has had the opportunity to influence the direction of the research.”www.tdaltd.com  39 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
