Why I’d use the market crash to load up on Saga shares

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Saga (LSE: SAGA) shares have plunged in value since the beginning of 2020. Shares in the over-50s travel and finance specialist have fallen nearly 70% since the beginning of the year.Investor sentiment towards the company has weakened significantly as investors have priced in the uncertain economic outlook facing the organisation. Despite this setback, Saga shares may deliver a strong performance for investors in the long run.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…Saga shares: under pressureSaga had been pinning its hopes on the launch of several new cruise ships to drive growth over the next few years. However, to stem the spread of the coronavirus, cruise ships around the world have been grounded. This will hit Saga’s earnings for the next 12 months at least.The good news is that cruise cancellations haven’t put customers off from booking. According to a recent trading update from the business, 81% of cruise capacity from September onwards has already been sold. What’s more, around half of the customers who were booked to travel on recently-cancelled trips, have re-booked.These figures suggest that customers trust Saga, and will be happy to travel with the group once again when this crisis is over. Moreover, it seems Saga’s other primary business, insurance, will escape the crisis relatively unscathed.While costs could rise due to supply chain disruptions, the company expects fewer accidents. Overall, the net impact should be minimal as a result. This diversification, coupled with the group’s reputation with customers, should help Saga shares recover in the long run.To help cope with the downturn, Saga has suspended dividends for the foreseeable future. The company was due to pay out 2.6p per share this year. But management has decided to hold back these funds for the time being.At the same time, the company has stripped out £15m of costs across the business. It’s also renegotiating credit facilities with lenders. These efforts should provide the group with the financial flexibility required to stay afloat through the crisis.Long-term supportLooking ahead, these actions should support Saga shares in the long term. Saga’s operations may continue to take a hit in the short run, but the company’s strong balance sheet, coupled with its reputation, should help it overcome the current economic dilemma.The group’s diversification also provides a buffer against economic uncertainty. As such, now could be an excellent time to snap up a share of this business at a discounted price. The stock is trading at its lowest level on record.That suggests the Saga share price offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. Even though the company’s recovery may not be smooth, I think its share price has tremendous potential for investors who buy today with a long-term outlook.

Las relaciones en Cristo son los ‘verdaderos instrumentos de la…

first_imgLas relaciones en Cristo son los ‘verdaderos instrumentos de la unidad’, dicen algunos líderes Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Vídeo: El Obispo Primado responde a las decisiones de sus colegas y pone el énfasis en la relación[Episcopal News Service – Cantórbery, Inglaterra] En el momento en que los 38 primados de la Comunión Anglicana concluyen su reunión del 11 al 15 de enero con un llamado a la imposición de sanciones a la Iglesia Episcopal, aunque con el compromiso de andar juntos, los líderes de la Iglesia dicen que los verdaderos instrumentos de la comunión y la unidad son las asociaciones globales, las relaciones e interconexiones que existen más allá de las diferencias y a través de la participación común en la misión de Dios.“Este no es el resultado que esperábamos, y si bien estamos decepcionados, es importante recordar que la Comunión Anglicana no es realmente un asunto de estructura y organización”, dijo el obispo primado Michael Curry el 15 de enero en un declaración en vídeo grabada frente a la catedral de Cantórbery.“La Comunión Anglicana es una red de relaciones que se han creado en asociaciones de misión, relaciones de diócesis compañeras, relaciones de parroquia a parroquia a través del mundo, relaciones que están profundamente comprometidas en servir y seguir el camino de Jesús de Nazaret ayudando a los más pobres de los pobres, y ayudando a este mundo a ser un lugar donde ningún niño se vaya a dormir con hambre jamás. En eso consiste la Comunión Anglicana, y esa Comunión prosigue y avanza”.La presidente de la Cámara de los Diputados, Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, dijo a ENS que los primados de la Comunión Anglicana a veces tienen relaciones difíciles entre sí, y describió la noticia surgida de la reunión como aleccionadora. “Pero mientras los primados laboran en la restauración de sus relaciones, los anglicanos a través del mundo siguen trabajando juntos para alimentar a los hambrientos, cuidar a los enfermos, educar a los niños y restaurar el mundo”, afirmó ella. “Nada de lo que ocurra en una Reunión de Primados cambiará nuestro mutuo amor y nuestro compromiso de servir a Dios juntos”.Jennings, que representa a la Iglesia Episcopal como miembro del clero en el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el principal organismo normativo de la Comunión, dijo que las personas que probablemente resulten más afectadas por la noticia que surge de la reunión “son los fieles anglicanos LGBTI (mujeres y hombres homosexuales, bisexuales, transexuales e intersexuales) y sus aliados, especialmente en África. Cuento a muchos de ellos entre mis amigos y colegas, y hoy estoy orando especialmente para que este nueva expresión de homofobia religiosa no los haga aun más vulnerables a la violencia y la discriminación que ya padecen”.En su declaración, los primados pidieron que la Iglesia Episcopal, durante un período de tres años “no nos represente en organismos ecuménicos e interreligiosos, ni debe ser nombrada o electa a un comité permanente interno y que, si bien participe en los organismos internos de la Comunión Anglicana, no tome parte en el proceso de la toma de decisiones sobre ningún asunto perteneciente a la doctrina o al sistema de gobierno”.Al expresar su deseo unánime de trabajar juntos, los primados dijeron que su llamado se produce en respuesta a la decisión de la Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal en junio pasado de cambiar el lenguaje canónico que define el matrimonio como [la relación contraída] entre un hombre y una mujer (Resolución A036) y autorizar dos nuevos ritos matrimoniales con un lenguaje que permite [indistintamente] ser usados por parejas del mismo sexo o de sexos opuestos (Resolución A054).Esta no es la primera vez que se le impone una prohibición a la Iglesia Episcopal de servir en organismos ecuménicos e interreligiosos. En 2010, el Rdo. Kenneth Kearon, entonces secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana, le informó a los episcopales que participaban en los diálogos ecuménicos de la Comunión, que su membresía quedaba suspendida.La decisión de Kearon se produjo después de que el entonces arzobispo de Cantórbery, Rowan Williams, propusiera que las personas que participaban en diálogos ecuménicos debían renunciar a sus membresías si provenían de una provincia que no había cumplido con la moratoria de la Comunión sobre bendiciones a uniones de parejas del mismo sexo, las intervenciones más allá de las fronteras provinciales y la ordenación de homosexuales al episcopado. Él se refería específicamente a la consagración de Mary Douglas Glasspool, que había tenido lugar poco antes, como obispa sufragánea en Los Ángeles y a las incursiones no autorizadas de líderes anglicanos en otras provincias. Glasspool es la segunda persona abiertamente homosexual y con pareja que es ordenada obispo en la Iglesia Episcopal.La decisión afectaba a cinco miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal que prestaban servicios entonces en los diálogos anglicanos con las iglesias Luterana, Metodista, Veterocatólica y Ortodoxa, así como a una miembro del Comité Permanente Interanglicano sobre Unidad, Fe y Orden (IASCUFO, por su sigla en inglés), que había sido invitado a servir de consultor. Ninguna mención se hizo en ese tiempo de representantes de otras provincias —tales como Nigeria, Kenia, Ruanda y Uganda— que habían participado en intervenciones extraprovinciales en Estados Unidos.La prohibición la levantó en 2012 el arzobispo Bernard Ntahoturi de la Iglesia Anglicana de Burundi, que era entonces presidente del IASCUFO.Desde su reinserción, la Rda. Katherine Grieb ha seguido siendo miembro del IASCUFO. No resulta claro lo que significan las nuevas sanciones para su participación en ese comité. Además de eso, parece que la única otra persona de la Iglesia Episcopal que participa actualmente en un organismo ecuménico de la Comunión es la Rda. Amy E. Richter, que aparece prestando servicios en el recientemente reconstituido Diálogo Anglicano-Reformado.Los diálogos ecuménicos de la Comunión se describen aquí y sus diálogos interreligiosos se explican aquí.En una entrevista con ENS, Curry dijo que si bien la decisión de los primados puede ser desproporcionada para muchos episcopales, particularmente homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales, “significa que tenemos más obra de amor que hacer, y esa obra de amor es contribuir a que nuestra historia y la historia de muchos cristianos fieles… sea contada y oída, y ello realmente puede ser parte de nuestra vocación en el mundo de dar testimonio, y un testimonio de amor”.El obispo Ian Douglas de la Diócesis de Connecticut dijo a ENS que la “verdadera unidad de la Comunión Anglicana se encarna en nuestra conexión y acción común mientras servimos a la misión de Dios de restauración y reconciliación en Jesús a través del poder del Espíritu Santo”.Douglas representa a la Iglesia Episcopal como miembro del episcopado en el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano. También es miembro del Comité Permanente de la Comunión Anglicana.“Las relaciones en Cristo fomentadas por la construcción de escuelas y clínicas médicas que hemos llevado a cabo juntos, las visitas a través de diócesis compañeras, los misioneros que comparten sus vidas en servicio, nos unen de manera seria y profunda”, afirmó.“Aprecio y respeto la manera en que las estructuras de la Comunión Anglicana, tales como el CCA, la Conferencia de Lambeth y la Reunión de los Primados brindan importante s espacios para la conversación, la oración y el discernimiento entre las provincias de la Comunión Anglicana. Pero los verdaderos ‘instrumentos de la unidad’ son las incontables vías en que parroquias, diócesis y cristianos individuales se conectan más allá de nuestras diferencias”.Curry, en la entrevista con ENS, dijo que el llamado de los primados es ahora una cuestión a considerar por el CCA “porque ese es el único organismo constitucional que tenemos en la Comunión, de manera que el CCA tendrá que decidir lo que los primados dicen sobre sí mismos, ya sea para estar de acuerdo con eso o no”.El CCA se reunirá del 8 al 20 de abril en Lusaka, Zambia en una reunión programada con anterioridad.Curry dijo a ENS que los primados no discutieron lo que sucedería al final del período de tres años que ellos fijaron para las sanciones.El Muy Rdo. Ian S. Markham, decano y presidente del Seminario Teológico de Virginia, en Alexandria, que ha educado a incontables líderes para el servicio a través de la Comunión Anglicana, dijo a ENS que él cree que la Iglesia Episcopal “está aprendiendo a vivir con la discrepancia y mi oración es que la Comunión haga lo mismo. La Iglesia Episcopal ha procurado sin desmayo servir a las otras provincias de la Comunión. Nuestras asociaciones con seminarios hermanos en el Sudán, Tanzania y en todas partes nunca han estado condicionadas al acuerdo. Donde hay una necesidad, procuramos servir”.Markham dijo que esa labor continuaría independientemente del resultado de la Reunión de los Primados. “En lo que respecta a las congregaciones, diócesis y seminarios, la continua labor de celebrar el don de una comunión mundial que ama al Señor Jesús proseguirá”, afirmó. “La Iglesia Episcopal necesita de la intensa vitalidad de los anglicanos del sur del globo. Ello amplía nuestra comprensión del anglicanismo y del cristianismo.“Es cierto que aquellos de nosotros que apoyamos la plena inclusión de nuestros hermanos y hermanas LGBT encontramos consuelo en la historia. A partir del intenso choque por el estudio crítico de la Escritura con Colenso, la Comunión siempre ha sido un foro para el discernimiento y la pugna. Desempeña continuamente ese papel. Y la mayoría de los problemas sí se verán de manera diferente de aquí a veinte o treinta años. Entre tanto, la obligación de la Iglesia Episcopal es mantener las buenas relaciones, afirmar lo que compartimos, centrarnos en Jesús y procurar hacer progresar el diálogo. A través de esta controversia, nunca hemos cerrado la puerta (ni hemos amenazado que lo haremos), siempre queremos hacer nuestra parte para apoyar a la Comunión en cualesquiera formas que esto pueda ser posible”.Una serie de artículos publicados en un blog sobre [la reunión de] los Primados 2016 se ha centrado en historias de la misión, los frutos de incontables relaciones, asociaciones e interconexiones que existen a través de la 38 provincias autónomas de la Comunión Anglicana en 165 países. Para muchos, eso es lo que ejemplifica la verdadera Comunión Anglicana, la que se concentra misiológicamente en servir a los necesitados en lugar de envolverse en los temas divisivos que han dominado hasta ahora gran parte de la agenda en Cantórbery esta semana.“En la Iglesia Episcopal en Connecticut tenemos la bendición de contar con docenas de asociaciones parroquiales en la misión de Dios a través del mundo, de Kenia a Nigeria, de Haití al Ecuador”, dijo Douglas. “Por ejemplo, la iglesia de La Trinidad [Trinity Church] en Tarriffville ha tenido una profunda y duradera relación con la Diócesis Anglicana de Kaduna, en el norte de Nigeria, a través del ministerio de la Clínica Médica Kateri. Cada año un equipo de profesionales de la medicina y de voluntarios no médicos viaja de Connecticut a Nigeria para trabajar junto a voluntarios nigerianos brindándoles atención médica gratuita a la población rural en la Clínica Kateri. Desde 2002, más de 120.000 personas, cristianos y musulmanes por igual, han sido atendidas por esta asociación en Cristo. La Clínica Médica Kateri es un testimonio vivo de que los anglicanos trabajando juntos en la misión de Dios somos el alma de nuestra comunión en Cristo”.En su declaración videograbada, Curry reconoció “la tristeza y el pesar” que han de sentir muchos por la declaración de los primados, pero dijo que es importante recordar que la Iglesia Episcopal sigue siendo una parte muy vital de la Comunión Anglicana.“Somos la Iglesia Episcopal, y somos parte del Movimiento de Jesús, y ese movimiento avanza, y nuestra obra avanza”, afirmó. “Y la verdad es que puede ser parte de nuestra vocación ayudar a la Comunión y ayudar a muchos otros a crecer en una dirección donde podamos realizar y vivir el amor que Dios tiene para todos nosotros, y podemos un día ser una Iglesia y una Comunión donde todos los hijos de Dios sean plenamente acogidos, donde ésta sea verdaderamente una casa de oración para todo el mundo. Y tal vez es parte de nuestra vocación ayudar a que eso suceda. Y en consecuencia debemos afirmar ese superior llamado; afirmar el superior llamado del amor y la fe, amor incluso para aquellos con quienes no estamos de acuerdo, y luego seguiremos, y haremos eso, y lo haremos juntos.“Somos parte del Movimiento de Jesús, y la causa del amor de Dios en este mundo nunca puede detenerse y nunca será derrotada. Dios les ama. Dios les bendiga. Y mantengan la fe. Seguimos adelante”.— Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Tiger found caged in abandoned home gets second chance at wildlife sanctuary

first_imgCongratulations to our @BARC_Houston Animal Enforcement Officers on a job well done. Earlier Monday, they followed up on an anonymous tip from a concerned citizen regarding a tiger.— City of Houston (@HoustonTX) February 12, 2019The estimated 350-pound tiger was transported to the facility, an affiliate of the Humane Society of the United States, on Wednesday afternoon, and is settling in well, Almrud said. There, he will have the chance to roam in enclosures of up to three acres.While the journey to a new home was stressful for the tiger, Almrud, who estimates him to be about 2 years old, described the moment he first walked onto the grass at the sanctuary as remarkable.“It was just amazing to see him walk out on grass and to see him explore and have that freedom of movement,” she said. “It was just such a reward and fulfilling to us.”Now, he spends his days rolling around the grass in glee, Almrud said.The tiger, who will be quarantined for 30 days, seems to be comfortable around humans, and “chucks it up regularly” to his caregivers, which is the sound tigers make to communicate, Almrud said.“He comes right up to the fence every time a staff member is present,” she said. “He seems very amenable to our presence.”The tiger is eating well — a combination of chicken, humanely raised non-processed beef and whole prey compete with organs and bones. It appears that he was being fed chicken, which is what owners of exotic cats often feed them, but chicken alone does not provide the complete nutrition they need to thrive, Almrud said.In addition, caregivers are tasked with keeping the tiger mentally stimulated by creating “pretend hunting” games and rotating him through different areas so he has access to new smells and environments to explore.“He seems to happy and content,” Almrud said. “Our staff is just falling in love with him.”The sanctuary, which currently has temporary legal custody of the tiger, is waiting until the Harris County District Attorney’s Office grants it full ownership to name the tiger, Almrud said. Once full ownership is granted — Almrud hopes within the next few weeks — the tiger will be sedated, undergo a full exam and be castrated, because “any reputable facility is non-breeding,” she added.Since tigers are normally solitary in the wild, the sanctuary likely will not introduce him to its two other tigers living on the property: Charlie, who was rescued from a breeder in 2016, and Alex, a former pet who arrived in 2014, Almrud said.Private citizens are not capable of adequately caring for tigers and other exotic cats due to lack of space or understanding of the animal’s physical and emotional needs, Kitty Block, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, told ABC News.“These are dangerous wild animals,” Block said. “These are not puppies or kittens.”In addition, the animals pose a great danger to the humans they are around, and it’s often children who inadvertently become their victims, likely because they look like small prey, Block said, She recalled one child who became blinded by the swipe of a tiger’s paw and another who died after a tiger bit its head.“They don’t see a playmate. They’re doing what they are instinctively [told to do],” she said. “It’s not something that you train out of them.”Currently, only 35 states have laws banning private ownership of big cats, and Texas, which is estimated to have the second-largest tiger population in the world, is not one of them, Block said. She is seeking a solution in the form of federal legislation and hopes to reintroduce the Big Cat Public Safety Act during this congressional session, she said.“It’s a measure to address the plight of thousands of wild animals kept privately as pets or languishing in substandard and unaccredited zoos, and prevent future ownership of big cats by unqualified and unprepared individuals,” Block wrote on her blog on the Humane Society’s website. “Its provisions would establish proper exemptions for qualified parties, and is a levelheaded approach to an animal welfare and public safety threat that has, unfortunately, grown worse in recent years. We badly need a national framework to bring the trade in wild animals under firm regulatory control.”While it is illegal to own a tiger within Houston city limits, it is unclear if authorities have identified any suspects in this case.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. The HSUS(HOUSTON) — A young tiger found caged in an abandoned home in Houston has been transported to a wildlife sanctuary where he is free to explore the scenery as he pleases.The large cat was found last week by a man who had ventured into the home to smoke marijuana, Houston Police spokeswoman Kese Smith told ABC News after the incident. The tiger was found in deplorable conditions, with his cage covered layers of his own feces and dirty metal bowls with food and water, Noelle Almrud, the director of the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison, Texas, where the tiger has been relocated, told ABC News. He did not appear to be malnourished but is overweight — most likely due to lack of exercise, Almrud said.last_img read more

Rodney Reed’s execution stayed by Texas appeals court

first_imgABC(DALLAS) —  Just hours after the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles recommended a 120-day reprieve Friday for Rodney Reed, a Texas man scheduled for execution next week for the 1996 murder of Stacey Stites, an appeals court granted him an indefinite stay of execution.“Applicant’s execution is stayed pending further order of this Court,” the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals said in its order Friday. The parole board sent to Texas Gov. Abbott its recommendation that he sign the reprieve but not grant Reed a commutation.Reed’s execution was to be Nov. 20.The appeals court docs show Reed’s legal team filed its latest application on Nov. 11, raising four claims: that the state suppressed exculpatory evidence, that the state presented false testimony in violation of due process, that Reed’s trial counsel was ineffective and that he is actually innocent.After reviewing the application, the court said it found Reed’s first three claims satisfy the requirements of Habeas Corpus, which is a “remedy to be used when any person is restrained in his liberty.”“Accordingly, we remand those claims to the trial court for further development,” court documents said.The Innocence Project, a legal non-profit that works to free people who claim they’ve been wrongly convicted, picked up Reed’s case 18 years ago.“We are extremely relieved and thankful that the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals (CCA) has issued a stay of execution for our client Rodney Reed,” the non-profit said in a statement Friday night. “The CCA has ordered the claims of Brady violations, false testimony and actual innocence in Mr. Reed’s case back to the trial court. This opportunity will allow for proper consideration of the powerful and mounting new evidence of Mr. Reed’s innocence.”Reed’s case has gained national attention and civil rights leaders have spoke out against his sentence. Friday’s decisions were reasons for hope for those who’ve fought to bring Reed’s case more attention.“It is imperative, given how much evidence has yet to be reviewed, and the growing concerns from the public, that this case is given the highest level of scrutiny possible,” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. III said in a statement to ABC News prior to the appeals court ruling. “Killing someone who is potentially innocent would only show the dangerous flaws of our criminal justice system’s continued use of the death penalty. I pray that God grants Governor Abbott the courage to do the right thing—to delay the execution.”Reed, 51, has been on death row for 21 years and long maintained his innocence.“Early on I was somewhat upset, just for knowing her. If I wouldn’t have known her, I wouldn’t have been associated with her [and] I wouldn’t be in this situation,” Reed told ABC News’ Deborah Roberts in a jailhouse interview last month. “But, this is the situation that was handed to me so I have [to] accept … that I did know her. I have to accept that there was a relationship. I have to accept that I’m here now for something that I didn’t do.“I hope that the right people look at this case in the right way,” Reed continued. “The evidence will speak for itself.”The Innocence Project has argued Texas must be certain the state is executing a man who’s actually guilty.The “Office of the Governor Greg Abbott has only stopped one of 47 executions,” the organization said in a statement Friday. “We need your help to make sure Rodney Reed is the second.”“Wrongful convictions are real; just ask any of the 27 innocent people we at the Innocence Project of Texas have exonerated in the last decade alone after they were wrongfully convicted,” the organization said in a statement Thursday. “If the State of Texas is going to take the irreversible action of imposing the death penalty on someone, it must do so in full confidence that it is not executing an innocent man.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
