  • Forget the BT share price! I’d rather own this FTSE 250 7%-yielder

    first_img 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The income investing appeal of BT (LSE: BT.A) increased dramatically after the general election and Labour’s threat of nationalisation receded.A dividend yield of 8% suggests the stock could provide a passive income for its investors, while a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 8 implies its long-term total return prospects could be high.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…However, the BT share price also has some weak points. For example, the company’s debt and pension deficits are sizable. Together they eclipse the group’s total market capitalisation.At the same time, the firm is struggling to compete with younger, more agile peers, which are nipping at its heels in the broadband, pay-tv and telecoms market.According to the City, these issues could cause BT’s earnings per share to decline by nearly 20% in its current financial year. Moreover, regulators want the company to invest billions more in infrastructure to help improve customer connectivity.This additional capital spending, coupled with falling earnings, could put BT’s coveted dividend in jeopardy. As such, it might be better to avoid the share price for the time being.A better buyAn income stock with a much brighter outlook is Hastings Group (LSE: HSTG). This is an up-and-coming insurance company that’s trying to leverage technology to achieve the best outcomes for its customers.The strategy seems to be working. Hastings has grown rapidly over the past five years. Revenue has more than doubled since 2013 and net profit is expected to hit £106m for fiscal 2020, up from £41m in 2013.As a relatively small enterprise in a large market, Hastings still has plenty of room to expand and snatch customers from larger peers. What’s more, unlike BT, which is continuously in the crosshairs of regulators due to its size and position in the UK telecoms market, Hastings has much more flexibility.For example, regulators cannot insist the company spend billions on improving its capital infrastructure. Hastings still has to submit to regulators, but they’re more concerned about the group’s financial stability rather than customer service. That’s up to the management.Income investmentTherefore, the company looks attractive as an income investment in the current environment. The stock supports a dividend yield of 6.7%, and the payout is covered 1.1 times by earnings per share.The distribution to investors has grown by around 500% over the past four years, which bodes well for future growth and suggest the company can provide investors with a rising passive income for many years. The stock also has a P/E ratio of just 13.3, which insinuates that its total return prospects could be high.Considering Hastings’ growth potential and the current level of income, it seems as if now could be the right time to snap up a share as the business grows its position in the market and delivers an expanding and sustainable passive income for its investors.

  • Dartmouth withdraws Tengatenga’s appointment as foundation dean

    first_img Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Bill Rankin says: Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Former Southern Malawi Bishop James Tengatenga will not become the dean of Dartmouth College’s Tucker Foundation, the college has announced. Photo: Anglican Communion News Service[Episcopal News Service] Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, has withdrawn the appointment of former Southern Malawi Bishop James Tengatenga as dean of its Tucker Foundation saying that his past comments about homosexuality “have compromised his ability to serve effectively.”Meanwhile, some North American church leaders are surprised and saddened by the decision, saying that they know Tengatenga as a bridge-builder and reconciler who has a deep understanding of the complex issues concerning human sexuality.Tengatenga, a long-standing member and current chair of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC), the Anglican Communion’s main policy-making body, announced in mid-July that after 15 years as bishop of Southern Malawi he was tendering his resignation to become the Virginia Rice Kelsey Dean of the William Jewett Tucker Foundation at Dartmouth College from Jan. 1, 2014.After some members of the Dartmouth community and other groups expressed concerns about Tengatenga’s appointment, Philip J. Hanlon, college president, said in an Aug. 14 statement that he felt it was important for him to meet with the bishop and ask “tough questions about his earlier statements on homosexuality” and “his leadership within an Anglican Church in Africa that has often been hostile regarding gay rights.”It was not clear to which earlier statements Hanlon was referring, but in an Aug. 15 e-mail to Episcopal News Service, Tengatenga said those protesting his appointment “have used selectively what I said in 2004” when he was quoted as opposing the election and ordination of the Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson as the first openly gay bishop in the Anglican Communion. Tengatenga has said that his understanding of human sexuality has since evolved and that he now considers all people equal regardless of their sexual orientation.Tengatenga, who was elected as ACC chair in 2009, and also became chair of the Anglican Communion Standing Committee, told ENS on Aug. 15 that he is “saddened” by Dartmouth’s decision. “They have chosen to trust bigotry over truth and justice.”He said that the college has yet to inform him formally of their decision but that once they do he intends to seek legal counsel.One of the groups that countersigned the protest is the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. “Of all the groups to take the lead against a black person on flimsy grounds,” Tengatenga said. “So much for the advancement of colored people … It is sad that such an institution can stoop so low.”Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas has known Tengatenga for close to two decades in a variety of capacities across the Anglican Communion, most recently in his leadership of the Anglican Consultative Council.“James is fundamentally committed to the belief that differences are a gift from God and we are at our God-given best when we come together to serve God’s mission of restoration and reconciliation,” said Douglas, who serves on the Anglican Communion Standing Committee alongside Tengatenga. “I am deeply saddened that Dartmouth has turned its back on such a fine Christian leader who has demonstrated over and over again the inclusive love of God in Christ.”Bishop Michael Ingham, whose Diocese of New Westminster in Canada has been blessing same-sex relationships since 2002, wrote to Hanlon saying that he believes the decision to withdraw Tengatenga’s appointment “to be quite wrong … He is an African first, proud of his roots and culture, but also widely travelled, scholarly, wise, and sophisticated in his grasp of the complex realities of justice. He has a far greater understanding of how to bridge cultural differences towards the goal of reconciliation than most of us in North America.”Tengatenga recently visited the New Westminster diocese as the keynote speaker for its annual convention. He “came here to build bridges between Africa and Canada on the contentious matter of homosexuality,” wrote Ingham. “He received three standing ovations. Mr. President, I can assure you no one with homophobic opinions would have received such a welcome here. His wisdom, humor, intelligence, and grace far transcends the narrow confines of a single issue.”Dartmouth, Ingham said, “has lost an extraordinary opportunity to forge a relationship with Africa through one of its outstanding intellectual leaders.”New Hampshire Bishop Rob Hirschfeld said he had been eager to welcome Tengatenga as a brother bishop to his diocese.“As Christians, our posture is one of hospitality; that’s how we are called to be,” he wrote in an e-mail to ENS. “I also recognize that it was a bold appointment considering how politically charged American colleges tend to be. As an alumnus, I have some familiarity of the climate at Dartmouth. Bishop James’s effectiveness, despite his conciliatory work in the Anglican Communion and his powerful statements of openness and support of the LBGTQ community, would also have been complicated by the apparent indefinite role of the Tucker Foundation.“If the Dartmouth College decision took place within the councils of the church, I think we would have benefited from some holy conversation that would have led to a deepening of communion and reconciliation. I would welcome that. We see that such a conversation is probably not what the college administration bargained for in filling this vacancy, so the revoking of the appointment is sad, but understandable. I pray that some healthy reflection will proceed out of this whole event.”Hanlon said that in his meeting with Tengatenga, the bishop spoke about his “inspiring life of service to some of the world’s most vulnerable people, especially victims of HIV-AIDS [and] … his commitment to gay rights and how he has worked to support the LGBTQ community in Malawi in the ways that are most effective, given the country’s cultural context.”But after “much reflection and consultation” with senior leaders at Dartmouth, Hanlon said it had become clear that Tengatenga’s past comments about homosexuality “and the uncertainty and controversy they created have compromised his ability to serve effectively as dean of Tucker.”Tengatenga had issued a statement on July 18 saying that he supports marriage equality and equal rights for everyone.“Let me state unequivocally and categorically that I consider all people equal regardless of their sexual orientation,” said Tengatenga. “The dignity of all should be honored and respected. As is the case with many people, my ideas about homosexuality have evolved over time. I’m not ashamed to say that, but I also think I’m not alone…”Tengatenga said he felt it was important to offer some historical context and noted that the changing attitudes on human sexuality, especially in the United States, “have been staggering. The 2003 consecration of V. Gene Robinson as Episcopal bishop of New Hampshire represented an extraordinary gift because it forced people — from parishioners to bishops to people outside the church — to think carefully and critically about the issue of homosexuality and gay rights. As a result, many of us came to very different understandings of the faith and the gospel.”“So, let me be clear. I support marriage equality and equal rights for everyone, and I look forward to working with everyone at Dartmouth—everyone. I believe that discrimination of any kind is sinful. When I say that I am committed to the human rights of all, I mean all.”But Tengatenga’s statement was not enough to allay concerns and Hanlon concluded that “the foundation and Dartmouth’s commitment to inclusion are too important to be mired in discord over this appointment. Consequently, we have decided not to move forward with the appointment of Dr. Tengatenga as dean of the Tucker Foundation.”Dartmouth will now develop plans for interim leadership at Tucker and convene a task force charged with making recommendations as to the foundation’s mission and organizational structure. On its website, the foundation says, it “educates Dartmouth students for lives of purpose and ethical leadership, rooted in service, spirituality, and social justice.”Tengatenga has said that he is not withdrawing his resignation as bishop of Southern Malawi but that he has not decided what he will do next. “It is in the Lord’s hands,” he told ENS.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter of the Episcopal News Service. August 16, 2013 at 6:02 pm Very confusing and confused situation. What did Bishop Tengatenga actually say in 2011 regarding human rights in his own country? Why did the leadership of Dartmouth not engage with him on this topic openly during the selection process? If the Bishop now says to the world that he supports equality for all, what evidence is there that he may be speaking falsely? All in all, Dartmouth College looks very bad at this point, a school led by administrators who do not know how to administrate. They should have consulted Bishop Ingram and Bishop Hirschfeld before making and announcing such a drastic decision, if only as a matter of simple courtesy. If the administrators of Dartmouth aren’t sure of the mission of the Tucker Foundation at this point, they certainly should have worked through that issue with outside counsel before considering any candidates to begin with.

Burlington Electric credits the diocese for the excess energy. Photo: Episcopal Church in Vermont[Diocese of Vermont] The Episcopal Church in Vermont recently completed its purchase of the Solar Installation (aka the Solar Farm) at Rock Point, the diocese’s 146-acre center in Burlington best known for its school, conference center, community gardens, and hiking trails. The 35-tracker, 147-kilowatt solar array, which was previously under the ownership of AllEarth Renewables, was originally valued at close to $1million. The diocese acquired it for $269,700 with the help of early contributions to the Rock Point Partnership Campaign—an ongoing initiative to preserve and improve Rock Point—and a loan from the Bishop Butterfield Loan Fund.The investment is expected to produce slightly more energy than is consumed on Rock Point and generate a financial benefit of more than $40,000 annually, a portion of which will be used to repay the Bishop Butterfield Loan, even as other pledges and gifts to the partnership campaign help reduce the loan balance.David Blittersdorf, left, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables, and the Rt. Rev. Thomas C. Ely at the Jan. 6 check-signing meeting. Photo: Episcopal Church in Vermont “Five years ago, the Trustees of the Diocese of Vermont—title-holders to Rock Point—entered an agreement with AllEarth Renewables, Inc. for the installation of the Solar Farm,” said Vermont Bishop Thomas C. Ely. “Our long-term goal was to purchase rather than lease it, and we are glad to have achieved that goal on the fifth anniversary of the installation.”During the lease arrangement, and in cooperation with Burlington Electric, the Rock Point Energy Coop paid AllEarth Renewables 18 cents per kilowatt hour of energy produced by the solar array, and Burlington Electric credited the electric bills at the rate of 20 cents per kilowatt hour.The full social and financial benefit of this project will accrue to the Rock Point Energy Coop and its several entities, which include Rock Point School, the Bishop Booth Conference Center, the bishop’s house and the diocesan offices of the Episcopal Church in Vermont. The Rock Point Energy Coop will also use available funds for other energy saving measures on Rock Point.“Care for the environment is an important aspect of our message in the Jesus Movement.

  • Astronaut Sally K. Ride’s legacy – encouraging young women to embrace…

    first_img Please enter your name here 2 COMMENTS You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here By Bonnie J. Dunbar, NASA astronaut (Ret) and TEES Distinguished Research Professor, Aerospace Engineering, Texas A&M University. This article first published on theconversation.com.On June 18, 1983, 35 years ago, Sally Ride became the first American woman to launch into space, riding the Space Shuttle STS-7 flight with four other crew members. Only five years earlier, in 1978, she had been selected to the first class of 35 astronauts – including six women – who would fly on the Space Shuttle.Sally’s first ride, with her STS-7 crewmates. In addition to launching America’s first female astronaut, it was also the first mission with a five-member crew. Front row, left to right: Ride, Commander Bob Crippen, pilot Frederick Hauck. Back row, left to right: John Fabian, Norm Thagard. NASAMuch has happened in the intervening years. During the span of three decades, the shuttles flew 135 times carrying hundreds of American and international astronauts into space before they were retired in 2011. The International Space Station began to fly in 1998 and has been continuously occupied since 2001, orbiting the Earth once every 90 minutes. More than 50 women have now flown into space, most of them Americans. One of these women, Dr. Peggy Whitson, became chief of the Astronaut Office and holds the American record for number of hours in space.The Space Shuttle democratized spaceflightThe Space Shuttle was an amazing flight vehicle: It launched like a rocket into Low Earth Orbit in only eight minutes and landed softly like a glider after its mission. What is not well known is that the Space Shuttle was an equalizer and enabler, opening up space exploration to a wider population of people from planet Earth.STS-50 Crew photo with Commander Richard N. Richards and pilot Kenneth D. Bowersox, mission specialists Bonnie J. Dunbar, Ellen S. Baker and Carl J. Meade, and payload specialists Lawrence J. DeLucas and Eugene H. Trinh. The photo was taken in front of the Columbia Shuttle, which Dunbar helped to build. NASAThis inclusive approach began in 1972 when Congress and the president approved the Space Shuttle budget and contract. Spacesuits, seats and all crew equipment were initially designed for a larger range of sizes to fit all body types, and the waste management system was modified for females. Unlike earlier vehicles, the Space Shuttle could carry up to eight astronauts at a time. It had a design more similar to an airplane than a small capsule, with two decks, sleeping berths, large laboratories and a galley. It also provided privacy.I graduated with an engineering degree from the University of Washington in 1971 and, by 1976, I was a young engineer working on the first Space Shuttle, Columbia, with Rockwell International at Edwards Air Force Base, in California. I helped to design and produce the thermal protection system – those heat-resistant ceramic tiles – which allowed the shuttle to re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere for up to 100 flights.Mike Anderson and Bonnie Dunbar flew together on STS-89 in 1998. They both graduated from the University of Washington. Anderson was killed in the Columbia accident, in 2003.NASAIt was a heady time; a new space vehicle could carry large crews and “cargo,” including space laboratories and the Hubble Space Telescope. The Shuttle also had a robotic arm, which was critical for the assembly of the International Space Station, and an “airlock” for spacewalks and enabled us to build the International Space Station.I knew from my first day at Rockwell that this vehicle had been designed for both men and women. A NASA engineer at the Langley Research Center gave me a very early “heads up” in 1973 that they would eventually select women astronauts for the Space Shuttle. In the 1970s there were visionary men and women in NASA, government and in the general public, who saw a future for more women in science and engineering, and for flying into space. Women were not beating down the door to be included in the Space Shuttle program, we were being invited to be an integral part of a larger grand design for exploring space.1978: Becoming an astronautThe selection process for the first class of Space Shuttle astronauts, to include women, opened in 1977. NASA approached the recruitment process with a large and innovative publicity campaign encouraging men and women of all ethnic backgrounds to apply. One of NASA’s recruiters was actress Nichelle Nichols who played Lt. Ohura on the “Star Trek” series, which was popular at the time. Sally learned about NASA’s astronaut recruitment drive through an announcement, possibly on a job bulletin board, somewhere at Stanford University. Sally had been a talented nationally ranked tennis player, but her passion was physics. The opportunity to fly into space intrigued her and looked like a challenge and rewarding career she could embrace.Sally and I arrived at NASA at the same time in 1978 – she as part of the “TFNG” (“Thirty-Five New Guys”) astronaut class and I as a newly minted mission controller, training to support the Space Shuttle. I had already been in the aerospace industry for several years and had made my choice for “space” at the age of 9 on a cattle ranch in Washington state. I also applied for the 1978 astronaut class but was not selected until 1980.Sally and I connected on the Flight Crew Operations co-ed softball team. We both played softball from an early age and were both private pilots, flying our small planes together around southeast Texas. We also often discussed our perspectives on career selection, and how fortunate we were to have teachers and parents and other mentors who encouraged us to study math and science in school – the enabling subjects for becoming an astronaut.STS-7: June 18th 1983In January 1978, NASA selected six women into the class of 35 new astronauts to fly on the Space Shuttle. From left to right are Shannon W. Lucid, Ph.D., Margaret Rhea Seddon, M.D., Kathryn D. Sullivan, Ph.D., Judith A. Resnik, Ph.D., Anna L. Fisher, M.D., and Sally K. Ride, Ph.D. NASAAlthough Sally was one of six women in the 1978 class, she preferred to be considered one of 35 new astronauts – and to be judged by merit, not gender. It was important to all the women that the bar be as high as it was for the men. From an operational and safety point of view, that was also equally important. In an emergency, there are no special allowances for gender or ethnicity: Everyone had to pull their own weight. In fact, it has been said that those first six women were not just qualified, they were more than qualified.While Sally was honored to be picked as the first woman from her class to fly, she shied away from the limelight. She believed that she flew for all Americans, regardless of gender, but she also understood the expectations on her for being selected “first.” As she flew on STS-7, she paid tribute to those who made it possible for her to be there: to her family and teachers, to those who made and operated the Space Shuttle, to her crewmates, and to all of her astronaut classmates including Dr. Kathy Sullivan, Dr. Rhea Seddon, Dr. Anna Fisher, Dr. Shannon Lucid, and Dr. Judy Resnick (who lost her life on Challenger). With all of the attention, Sally was a gracious “first.” And the launch of STS-7 had a unique celebratory flair. Signs around Kennedy Space Center said “Fly Sally Fly,” and John Denver gave a special concert the night before the launch, not far from the launch pad.Continuing the momentumOne of the topics that Sally and I discussed frequently was why so few young girls were entering into math, technology, science, and engineering – which became known as STEM careers in the late 1990s. Both of us had been encouraged and pushed by male and female mentors and “cheerleaders.” By 1972, companies with federal contracts were actively recruiting women engineers. NASA had opened up spaceflight to women in 1978 and was proud of the fact that they were recruiting and training women as astronauts and employing them in engineering and the sciences.National needs for STEM talent and supportive employment laws were creating an environment such that if a young woman wished to become an aerospace engineer, a physicist, a chemist, a medical doctor, an astronomer or an astrophysicist, they could. One might have thought that Sally’s legendary flight and those of other women astronauts over the last 35 years might have inspired a wave of young women (and men) into STEM careers. For example, when Sally flew into space in 1983, a 12-year-old middle school girl back then would now be 47. If she had a daughter, that daughter might be 25. After two generations, we might have expected that there would be large bow wave of young energized women entering into the STEM careers. But this hasn’t happened.Rather, we have a growing national shortage of engineers and research scientists in this nation, which threatens our prosperity and national security. The numbers of women graduating in engineering grew from 1 percent in 1971 to about 20 percent in 35 years. But women make up 50 percent of the population, so there is room for growth. So what are the “root causes” for this lack of growth?K-12 STEM educationMany reports have cited deficient K-12 math and science education as contributing to the relatively stagnant graduation rates in STEM careers.Completing four years of math in high school, as well as physics, chemistry and biology are correlated with later success in science, mathematics, and engineering in college. Without this preparation, career options are reduced significantly. Even though I graduated from a small school in rural Washington state, I was able to study algebra, geometry, trigonometry, math analysis, biology, chemistry, and physics by the time I graduated. Those were all prerequisites for entry into the University of Washington College of Engineering. Sally had the same preparation before she entered into physics.As part of NASA’s commitment to the next generation of explorers, NASA Ames collaborated with Sally Ride Science to sponsor and host the Sally Ride Science Festival at the NASA Research Park. Hundreds of San Francisco Bay Area girls, their teachers and parents enjoy a fun-filled interactive exploration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics on Sept. 27, 2008. NASA Ames Research Center / Dominic HartAlthough we have many great K-12 schools in the nation, too many schools now struggle to find qualified mathematics and physics teachers. Inspiring an interest in these topics is also key to retention and success. Being excited about a particular subject matter can keep a student engaged even through the tough times. Participation in “informal science education” at museums and camps is becoming instrumental in recruiting students into STEM careers, especially as teachers struggle to find the time in a cramped curriculum to teach math and science.Research has shown that middle school is a critical period for young boys and girls to establish their attitudes toward math and science, to acquire fundamental skills that form the basis for progression into algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, and to develop positive attitudes toward the pursuit of STEM careers. When Dr. Sally Ride retired from NASA, she understood this, and founded Imaginary Lines and, later, Sally Ride Science, to influence career aspirations for middle school girls. She hosted science camps throughout the nation, exposing young women and their parents to a variety of STEM career options. Sally Ride Science continues its outreach through the University of California at San Diego.Challenging old stereotypes and honoring Sally’s legacySally Ride and Bonnie Dunbar are fighting outdated stereotypes that women are not good at STEM subjects. Creativa Images/shutterstock.comHowever, there are still challenges, especially in this social media-steeped society. I and other practicing women engineers have observed that young girls are often influenced by what they perceive “society thinks” of them.In a recent discussion with an all-girl robotics team competing at NASA, I asked the high school girls if they had support from teachers and parents, and they all said “yes.” But then, they asked, “Why doesn’t society support us?” I was puzzled and asked them what they meant. They then directed me to the internet where searches on engineering careers returned a story after story of describing “hostile work environments.”Sadly, most of these stories are very old and are often from studies with very small populations. The positive news, from companies, government, universities and such organizations as the National Academy of Engineers, Physics Girl, and Society of Women Engineers, rarely rise to the top of the search results. Currently, companies and laboratories in the U.S. are desperate to employ STEM qualified and inspired women. But many of our young women continue to “opt out.”Young women are influenced by the media images they see every day. We continue to see decades-old negative stereotypes and poor images of engineers and scientists on television programs and in the movies.Popular TV celebrities continue to boast on air that they either didn’t like math or struggled with it. Sally Ride Science helps to combat misconceptions and dispel myths by bringing practicing scientists and engineers directly to the students. However, in order to make a more substantial difference, this program and others like it require help from the media organizations. The nation depends upon the technology and science produced by our scientists and engineers, but social media, TV hosts, writers and movie script developers rarely reflect this reality. So it may be, that in addition to K-12 challenges in our educational system, the “outdated stereotypes” portrayed in the media are also discouraging our young women from entering science and engineering careers.Unlimited opportunities in science and engineeringThe reality? More companies than ever are creating family-friendly work environments and competing for female talent. In fact, there is a higher demand from business, government and graduate schools in the U.S. for women engineers and scientists than can be met by the universities.Both Sally and I had wonderful careers supported by both men and women. NASA was a great work environment and continues to be – the last two astronaut classes have been about 50 percent female.I think that Sally would be proud of how far the nation has come with respect to women in space, but would also want us to focus on the future challenges for recruiting more women into science and engineering and to reignite the passion for exploring space.
