Bernanke says it’s too early to cut deficit despite growth

first_img Bernanke says it’s too early to cut deficit despite growth Bernanke’s comments came as fresh data showed the pace of growth in the US non-manufacturing sector accelerated more quickly than economists had expected.The jump in the Institute for Supply Management’s services sector index to 53.2 in September from 51.5 in August provided some hope that economic activity picked up in the third quarter. The reading was above the 52 median forecast by economists. A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector.The index showed services firms took on more workers in September, with the employment component rising to 50.2. Though that reflected only modest hiring, it was above August’s reading of 48.2, which shows the sector shed jobs that month. New orders rose to 54.9 from 52.4. Tags: NULL FEDERAL Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke yesterday warned against taking immediate action to reduce the US deficit warning it could derail the nascent recovery. “Economic conditions provide little scope for reducing deficits significantly further over the next year or two,” Bernanke told an audience in Rhode Island. “Indeed, premature fiscal tightening could put the recovery at risk,” he added implying tax cuts should not be allowed to expire at the end of this year. Bernanke’s policy is in direct contrast to that of Bank of England govenor Mervyn King who has publicly backed the coalition’s government’s plan to slash spending next year.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Building a second income stream with FTSE 100 stocks could help you achieve a steady, growing passive income over the long run.Here are two companies that stand out right now supporting attractive income credentials.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…BAE SystemsDefence group BAE Systems (LSE: BA) has been on the warpath over the past six years. The company has been investing in growth, and these efforts are starting to pay off. It earned a net profit of just £168m in 2013. This year, analysts are forecasting a net income of £1.5bn. That’s a compound annual growth rate of more than 40%.To complement growth, the company recently announced it would acquire two US defence contractors. It’s buying Collins Aerospace’s Military Global Positioning System and Raytheon’s Airborne Tactical Radios business for $2.2bn. The two deals will significantly increase BAE’s presence in the world’s largest defence market.The deals will also increase borrowing. However, BAE’s cash generation suggests the company has plenty of money available to sustain these additional debt obligations while maintaining its distribution to investors. Further, selling defence equipment tends to be a relatively predictable business. Governments want a reliable supplier and they are prepared to sign deals that last for many years (in some cases up to a decade) to guarantee this.The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 3.6% and it’s covered twice by earnings per share. Meanwhile, shares in the defence group are trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14, which suggests they offer a wide margin of safety at current levels.All of the above implies BAE can produce that steady, growing passive income for investors for many years to come.MondiI’m also optimistic about the long term income outlook for paper and packaging company Mondi (LSE: MNDI). Over the past six years, Mondi’s earnings per share have risen at a compound annual rate of 16%. This has helped the company grow its dividend to investors at an average rate of 16% per annum.At current levels, the stock supports a dividend yield of 4.2%, and the distribution is covered twice by earnings. These numbers suggest the payout is quite safe for the time being.As one of the largest packaging companies in Europe, Mondi has a unique competitive advantage. It can produce more product at a much lower cost than most of its competitors. As long as management maintains this advantage by reinvesting excess profits back into the business, Mondi should be able to maintain its market position for decades.That’s great news for investors seeking a long term rising passive income from the stock. Earnings growth should allow the company to increase its dividend steadily while providing capital to reinvest back in the business.Shares in the company are currently dealing at a P/E of just 10.9, suggesting they offer value at current levels. As such, if you’re looking for an FTSE 100 income play to give you a passive income, Mondi could be a great addition to your portfolio today. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves | Wednesday, 5th February, 2020 | More on: BA MNDI Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Coronavirus’ impact on Indigenous communities puts new focus on protecting…

first_img By Heather Beasley DoylePosted Jul 17, 2020 The sun rises over Oceti Sakowin Camp just north of the Cannonball River where opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline stayed during the 2016 protests. In solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux, the protests brought together Native tribes in an unprecedented show of unity that resurrected the Indigenous rights movement in the United States. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] In early 2019, as an editorial committee began working on a new Lakota translation of the Book of Common Prayer, two of its members died “right off the bat.” They were Indigenous elders whose language fluency had uniquely qualified them for the task, the Ven. Paul Sneve, who coordinates the project funded by a United Thank Offering grant in 2018, told Episcopal News Service in May.The loss hurt Sneve both personally and culturally: Losing two elders in short order was a reminder that time is a critical factor in saving Native languages, stories and customs. Then, about a year later, the coronavirus began disproportionately affecting Native Americans, putting elders at particular risk. The pandemic is “scaring us to death,” said Sneve, who also serves the Diocese of South Dakota as archdeacon. “We’re terrified of losing [our elders]. And our tribes are very aware of it.”Translating the Book of Common Prayer into Indigenous languages is just one way that The Episcopal Church, through Indigenous ministries, partners with Native Americans to preserve languages and rituals. The coronavirus has added new urgency to this work, as Indigenous leaders consider what knowledge and traditions could be lost. At the same time, they see hope in young people who are connecting with their heritage in ways that previous generations haven’t.The Lakota and Dakota of Standing Rock and the Navajo are three of more than 560 Indigenous tribes, including those in Alaska, recognized by the United States Department of the Interior. Each tribe has its own culture and language, the Rev. Bradley Hauff, The Episcopal Church’s missioner for Indigenous ministries, told ENS. He likens Native North American tribes to European countries and people; instead of Norwegians, Greeks and Slovenians, there are the Shoshone, Nez Pierce, Ute, Northern Paiute, Tlingit and hundreds of others. According to the 2010 census, of 5.2 million Native Americans, one-third live on 326 reservations. The other 70%, the Indigenous diaspora, live elsewhere.Most Indigenous people aren’t fluent in a tribal language. According to a 2011 American Community Survey Brief, roughly 372,000 people speak Native North American languages. Babbel magazine reported in 2017 that 175 such languages are spoken and that, “without restoration efforts, there will be at most 20 still spoken in 2050.” Sneve knew whom to recruit for the translation project: “Our fluent speakers are elders.”Hauff noted that many Episcopal churches with Indigenous members use a translated Book of Common Prayer, sing translated hymns, and incorporate Native rituals and spirituality into worship. The Diocese of the Rio Grande formed a group for a translation project in the Episcopal Church in Navajoland, an Episcopal Area Mission that serves the Navajo Nation. “They never had enough time to get together” before the pandemic, said the Rev. Cathlena Plummer, priest in charge and canon for spiritual formation at Navajoland’s Good Shepherd Mission in Fort Defiance, Arizona.The Book of Common Prayer is already translated into Gwich’in (spoken in northeast parts of Alaska) and Lakota, and the new Lakota translation project is focused on updating the book’s 1928 and 1979 predecessors. “We’re hoping to use a more contemporary Lakota” and to include the less common Dakota and Nakota dialects, said Sneve, whose mother was Sicangu Lakota and his father was of Norwegian descent. Growing up, he learned Dakota through Episcopal liturgical materials, but “conversational Lakota is a real struggle,” he said; Lakota wasn’t spoken in his family’s home.The Episcopal Church’s efforts to preserve Indigenous languages are part of a complex, conflicted relationship between the church and Native people that dates back to Jamestown, Hauff said. This is partly because the church was one Christian denomination that operated Indian boarding schools first established in the late 19th century to assimilate Indigenous children into white culture. “That is a painful part of our shared history,” Hauff said. “It has not been a perfect relationship.”Chaská Moore discovered The Episcopal Church because of church leaders’ and members’ support of the 2016 protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The protests brought together Native tribes in an unprecedented show of unity that resurrected the Indigenous rights movement in the United States. The protests also led Moore to reconnect with Indigenous culture. He joined The Episcopal Church and now serves as the Diocese of North Dakota’s minister for Indigenous youth. At his previous church, Moore felt that he had to leave his Indigenous identity at the door; with readings, the liturgy and some hymns in Dakota, The Episcopal Church feels like home.When he was very young, Moore spent every day with his grandmother. “I always said that my grandmother was my mom,” said Moore, whose father was a single dad. For her part, Moore’s grandmother would tell her young grandson that he was taking care of her. Originally from the Fort Belknap Indian Community in Montana, Moore now lives in North Dakota on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. His family is from the Nez Perce, Blackfoot, Assiniboine, Dakota and Lakota tribes, and his dad’s mom “taught me how to pray, about the ways of God,” and to be respectful and polite, said Moore, now 21 and a music education major at Bismarck State College. When that grandmother died, his maternal grandmother took over. From her, he learned how to have fun. Along the way, both grandmothers shared their Indigenous values, setting standards for him.Moore’s grandmothers both died before the novel coronavirus. But they, like other Indigenous elders, offered a link to Native American languages, stories, customs and spirituality.Forrest Cuch, a member of the Ute tribe, former director of the Utah Division of Indian Affairs and a senior bishop’s warden at St. Elizabeth’s Church in Whiterocks, Utah, sees the coronavirus as just the latest front of Indigenous elder loss. “We have been losing our cultures and our elders for the last 50 years,” he said. Cuch stressed that not every elder imparts shared history and culture. To think so simplifies the complexities of people’s lives and the issues facing Native communities, while presenting a homogenized, romanticized view of older Native Americans.Cuch and Sneve are hopeful that Moore and other young Indigenous people are committed to learning their people’s real history and culture. “The young people that are coming into the world, they’re very intelligent and quite gifted,” Cuch said; they’re clued in to genocide and whitewashed educational narratives, which have downplayed the damage inflicted on Native Americans. “They have to go through the process of dealing with the trauma,” he said. “It’s a very treacherous journey out there.”Hauff took a more nuanced view of Indigenous youth. “They are growing up in a world that is very different from the world of my parents,” he said. Decades ago, Native languages and traditions were “being discouraged and assimilation was encouraged,” he said. “But many of our youth have challenges — disengaged parents, negative gang influences, substance abuse, domestic abuse and mental health issues reflected by an alarmingly high suicide rate.”The inequities currently at play are legacies of the genocide that white European settlers and their descendants perpetrated on Indigenous people. By the late 19th century, the Native American population had diminished from upwards of 15 million in the mid-1400s to 238,000. Along the way, forced relocation disrupted Indigenous cultures, making them harder to sustain, even as the Indigenous population gradually grew to more than five million. “Our entire genetic makeup has had to adapt,” said Warren Hawk, a member of the Lakota and Dakota nations who lives on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. “Should this pandemic infiltrate itself [into our communities] … I think our death rate would be devastating.”“We’ve lost a lot of elders just reservation-wide, and it’s a great loss, a tremendous loss,” Plummer of Good Shepherd Mission said. During the pandemic, as she and the Rev. Leon Sampson delivered groceries to Navajo elders, they noticed families becoming more protective of their grandparents and great-grandparents. In the Navajo tradition, elders with the family’s teachings are known as “pot carriers,” she said; they carry the history and meaning of their clans, told through story. “Some of them have passed on not sharing the story, not sharing what they knew about their clan because it’s not written down. No one knew this was going to happen, and no one knew that we should be writing our story as we live,” Plummer said.Elders also keep track of who’s related. Sneve notes that without that institutional knowledge, no one will ensure that “you don’t accidentally marry your cousin.” And Hawk recalls his parents and grandparents teaching him Lakota values. “Everything is sort of a teachable and learning environment for us, and so that is what is held by our elders,” he said. He learned that everything is connected and has meaning and purpose — and he sees younger people balancing those values with the broader world. Hawk, who is councilman-at-large of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and chairman of the Standing Rock Mission Council, grew up in a bilingual home. When he and his siblings went to school, though, their parents spoke English to them. Today, at age 58, he’s trying to relearn his parents’ language. Hawk mentioned that now there is an immersion language program at Standing Rock.Moore took Lakota classes in high school. “The schools here consider our language a foreign language,” he said wryly. Many interviewed for this article expressed optimism that education (rather than just at-home learning) is critical for Indigenous languages. There are preschool immersion programs, and the University of Nevada, Reno, offered its first Northern Paiute language class last fall. Sneve points to tribal universities as a particularly rich resource. “Our tribal universities are enabling the resurgence of the language, the resurgence of spirituality, the older traditional ways,” he said, highlighting the Lakota language and spirituality classes at Sinte Gleska University on Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. “They are, in many ways, becoming kind of a clearinghouse of elder wisdom and information because they use the elders to teach classes.”And there’s more: “I’m also meeting more and more young adults … and they’re only speaking to their kids in Lakota,” Sneve said. “It’s really neat to hear little kids speaking Lakota.”Moore and others emerged from the Dakota Access Pipeline protests steeped in their Indigenous identity. “With that fight, out came people speaking their language, going to their ceremonies, knowing their stories, praying in their language … getting more in touch with mother earth,” he said. But Moore has two groups of friends: those moving away from traditional Indigenous values and others striving to maintain them. “I’m the middle way for those two schools of people,” he said.Moore aims for balance, yet feels responsible for the Lakota way. “The way I see it is, if we’re going to lose some of our tradition or all of it, it’s going to be my fault. It’s not going to be the fault of losing elders. It’s going to be my fault … and my peers’ and my generation’s fault because we didn’t seek that knowledge,” he said. “Because it’s always there. I know at least five different men that I can go to for cultural teachings. And it’s my fault if I didn’t go to them and learn those things from them.”As states and tribes calibrate reopening and their response to the coronavirus, it’s impossible to know if another tribe could experience the same degree of loss as the Navajo Nation. Or how much cultural wisdom tribes will lose because of the pandemic — or will eventually lose with time.It won’t be everyone or everything, though, Sneve noted. “We’ve survived smallpox, influenza epidemics, you know, we’re surviving diabetes. We’re going to be OK. We’re going to lose some important people. It’s going to happen,” he said. “How we look at time is very different than a Western European way, so when someone dies, they’re not gone forever. We can still communicate with them, and they can come back and visit us. So even though we may lose their physical body, we know they’re not gone forever and they can still communicate with us if they need to. So we’re optimistic, as much as we can be.”– Heather Beasley Doyle is a freelance journalist, writer and editor based in Massachusetts.

UNICEF UK’s My Fundraising raises over £500,000 in eight months

The online fundraising platform enables individuals to create their own profile pages with which to promote their own sponsored fundraising event.A year ago the charity acknowledged that the My Fundraising website had become outdated, so appointed digital communications agency Chameleon to redesigned and develop it. The new site features a more intuitive navigation structure, a streamlined donation process that includes PayPal, and integration with social channels including Facebook.My Fundraising is UNICEF UK owned and branded, so does not run using a third party service such as those provided by JustGiving, Virging Money Giving or BT MyDonate. As such, it does not pay commission fees to third parties, and it has full access to the site’s analytics and all supporter and donor data.The site launched in April 2011, and UNICEF UK promoted it by emailing its supporter base and placing banner ads on its main site.ResultsSince the launch nearly 900 pages have been set up by individual fundraisers. The average donation has risen from £25 on the previous version of the site to £48.Alyrene Rosser, Fundraising Initiatives Manager (Events) at UNICEF UK said: “This website has been UNICEF UK’s fundraising success story of 2011. I think it’s achieved such a lot in a short space of time because it’s so easy to navigate and use, and has a clear, simple donation process.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
