Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended 4imprint Group and Hargreaves Lansdown. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The value of my Stocks and Shares ISA took an absolute battering in early 2020. But it didn’t discourage me from continuing to buy UK shares.As a long-term investor I believe in the potential for exceptional returns that stock markets can provide. Patient share-pickers like me tend to make an average return of at least 8% a year. Those that buy UK shares in the aftermath of a stock market crash like that of early 2020 can enjoy much, much better returns by riding the stock market recovery too. This is how hundreds of Stocks and Shares ISA investors became millionaires after the 2008/09 banking crisis.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…Getting rich during the stock market rallyHere are six top UK shares I’m thinking of buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA today. I think they could make me lots of cash during the new bull market.I’m expecting Trifast to soar in value as the economy rebounds and demand for cars picks up again. This UK share supplies a wide range of bolts, screws and other fastenings that hold cars together. And as a major component supplier to the world’s biggest motor manufacturers it’s well placed to ride the recovery.Improving consumer spending power bodes well for life insurance suppliers like Aviva as well. Unlike general insurance products, demand for these sorts of policies drops during difficult macroeconomic times like these. But it is also one of the fastest to recover, meaning that FTSE 100-quoted Aviva can expect profits to bounce back rapidly. A low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 6 times and dividend yield of 9% makes it an extra brilliant buy, I feel.I’d also buy Hargreaves Lansdown shares as rising risk appetite propels demand for its services during the economic upturn. This is not all, as poor returns on traditional savings accounts will drive activity on its investment platforms. This FTSE 100 share’s website went down last week as bullish UK share investors piled into equity markets en masse.Other UK shares for the economic reboundGeneral retailers are often at the forefront of stock market rallies as broader consumer confidence improves. I’d buy JD Sports Fashion in my ISA as it sells exclusive ranges from the world’s most desirable sports brands. This FTSE 100 stock’s also a great play on the rise of e-commerce and the rocketing popularity of the athleisure fashion segment.An uptick in business activity should see demand for 4Imprint Group’s promotional goodies surging once more. This UK share supplies T-shirts, mugs, bags, pens and other kinds of products that can be emblazoned with company logos. And it generates almost all profits from the US which, as history has shown, will be the driving force behind the global economic recovery.And I think the advertising upturn that will boost revenues at 4Imprint will also benefit broadcasters like STV Group. Reduced marketing spend has whacked turnover at the Scottish television giant in 2020. But ad sales are beginning to improve ahead of the critical Christmas period, suggesting that STV could already be turning the corner. 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

He radiated his love for the church, and, as the last quote captures, was humorously human. Good by, good soul. Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Submit a Job Listing Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR The Rev. William Bailey, who in 2004 became the first vocational deacon ordained in the Episcopal Diocese of Newark in more than a quarter century, died March 6 at his home in Morris Plains, New Jersey, after a long illness. He was 81.“All my life, I had wanted to be a priest,” Bailey told Episcopal Life in 2007. “I had always wanted to do that but never had the discipline to go to school and do the things I needed to do.”Deacon William Bailey sets the eucharistic table at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, New Jersey. Photo/Sharon SheridanInstead he married, had four children and “did everything else” a layman could do. “Almost every place we moved, I ended up somehow a warden,” he said.As a young man, Bailey worked as a live-in counselor at the St. Peter’s Home for Boys in Detroit. After marrying, he and his wife, Evelyn, lived rent-free in the rectory of the city’s St. Thomas Episcopal Church, which then had no clergy. Hired as the janitor, he became involved in pastoral work and was named the church’s missioner. Over the next three or four years, he conducted morning prayer services, launched a neighborhood basketball team and helped the parish grow from 13 parishioners to 33.Meanwhile, Bailey spent 27 years working for a division of General Motors that manufactured equipment for diesel transmissions. He spent a lot of time on the road, calling on potential clients such as fire departments and municipalities — what he called “engineering sales.”“We didn’t have an end product,” he explained. “We didn’t have a truck. We just had pieces, and you went and tried to convince people that these pieces that you had were what they needed to satisfy their needs.”“What I do [as a deacon] is what I was doing then,” said Bailey. “It’s dealing with people, trying to discover their needs and helping them. … Our product happens to be our Lord and Savior.”Because the call to ordination never left Bailey. Not during his GM years. Not while he subsequently taught mechanics and sales for a distributor who serviced diesel products (“I called it the care and feeding of diesels and transmissions.”) Not after he retired in 1993.He joined an Education for Ministry class at his parish, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, New Jersey, thinking it would help in him lay ministry. Then he discovered he could use it in place of seminary — and that his diocese was reinstituting the vocational diaconate. He “buckled down” to his studies and participated in Stephen Ministry. As a result of his clinical pastoral education, he because a chaplain at an area hospital.And on June 5, 2004, at age 72, he became the first of five vocational deacons ordained that day by then-Bishop Jack Croneberger – the first in the Diocese of Newark in more than 27 years, Bailey recalled.Bailey subsequently served as deacon at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Millington, New Jersey, and as a hospital chaplain and served on the diaconal ordination committee of the diocese’s Commission on Ministry. After retiring from All Saints’ in 2010, he continued to serve as deacon and pastoral associate at his home parish, St. Peter’s.Diocese of Newark Mark Beckwith will preach and celebrate at a worship service celebrating Bailey’s life on March 13 at 11 a.m. at St. Peter’s. Bailey is survived by his wife, four children, five grand children and five great-grandchildren.Looking back in 2007, Bailey said he saw God’s hand in all his family’s moves and ministries.“A call is real,” he said. “I think I felt this call from the time I was a boy.”Bailey said he didn’t regret not becoming a priest. “In fact, I’m so pleased that I’m not, because I’m doing the pastoral things that priests often don’t have an opportunity to do. They’re running churches. They’re worrying about budgets. They’re working with vestries. All of the things it takes to run a church is a major, major job. A part of it, as I see it, is being able to give the canonical blessings, to make sacred that which is not.”“But I am with the people where they are,” he said. “I do that servant ministry, which I really love. … It’s the ministry of every lay person. A deacon really should be the icon to the rest of the congregation, that this is how you live the lay life.”“It’s a wonderful ministry, absolutely a wonderful ministry,” he concluded. “And you get called reverend!” Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Washington, DC Rector Martinsville, VA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Tampa, FL Submit an Event Listing Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Bath, NC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Comments are closed.

To help Canadians to prepare for and celebrate the day, the church has produced a whole host of written and audio/visual resources.On a special section of its official website called Journey to Jerusalem Sunday, a church spokesperson writes, “The Anglican Church of Canada and the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem have been companions in mission for many years, yet not much is known about this relationship.“Each year, numerous Canadians visit the Holy Land as pilgrims, students and tourists, yet many know little of the life and witness of Christians there — be they Palestinian, Arab Israeli, Jordanian, Lebanese or Syrian.“There is much to see, hear, experience and learn about being Anglican, being Christian in this ancient, troubled place today.“Journey to Jerusalem Sunday — a multimedia web page produced by the Anglican Journal and Anglican Video — intends to make the people and stories of Anglicans in the Holy Land come alive in word, image and sound.“We hope it will contribute to a greater understanding of how the ancestors of the first indigenous Christian community — “the living stones” — are living out their faith despite continuing social, political and economic hardships.”The province’s official publication, the Anglican Journal, wrote that their Canada’s Primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz described Jerusalem as “truly the mother of all who call themselves Christian, indeed all who call themselves Jew and Muslim,” adding, “There is room for everyone in Jerusalem.” Anglican Communion, Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Smithfield, NC Anglican Church of Canada launches ‘Jerusalem Sunday’ Rector Belleville, IL Press Release Service Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Middle East Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Tampa, FL Israel-Palestine, Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16

Since the beginning of the most recent war on immigrants — which took shape starting in 2006 with the hypercriminalization of undocumented workers — the U.S. Congress has repeatedly talked of passing legislation labeled “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” to right some of those wrongs.We are long past “reforms,” however.Conditions during the past 15 years for documented, undocumented and refugee workers, not only in the U.S. but around the globe, have been dismal — which is an understatement. The time is now to bring workers out of the shadows, out of the detention centers and out of the countless deplorable migrant tent cities around the world and grant workers immediate full, legal, human and workers’ rights.The condition of migrant workers is a crime against humanity. Relief and aid must happen now, not tomorrow.Global working-class issueAccording to the U.N., “more people than ever live in a country other than the one in which they were born. In 2019, the number of migrants globally reached an estimated 272 million. … The number of globally forcibly displaced people topped 70 million for the first time … [this] includes 26 million refugees, 3.5 million asylum seekers and over 41 million internally displaced persons.” (tinyurl.com/hbxsqafc)It was not just in the U.S. that a white supremacist right-wing xenophobe used immigration to whip up a nativist base. Both Trump and right-wing leaders in Europe used the age-old tactic of divide and conquer the global working class.It is no surprise that immigrant allies and organizations in the U.S. organized in record numbers to remove Donald Trump from office. Their work helped to oust one of the worst racist and misogynist presidents ever. This can be considered a win for them. Allies report that some migrants in camps in Matamoras, Mexico, actually cried with relief when they heard Trump had lost the election.This should not come as a surprise when you consider the following news.On Jan. 30, the Associated Press reported that at least 19 migrants were found shot and burned to death in Mexico near the U.S. border. The migrants appeared to be mainly Guatemalan and Mexican. “The bodies were found Jan. 22 piled in a burned-out truck on a dirt road in the northern border state of Tamaulipas. The truck had 113 bullet impacts.” This kind of atrocity is the tip of the iceberg of crimes that occur against migrants and refugees as they try to make their way into developed countries.In a camp in Lesbos, Greece, hundreds of refugees stand close to one another as they wait in line for food, as “less than one in five are wearing a face mask” despite the deadly pandemic sweeping the globe. Said one Cameroonian woman refugee: “We are like inside an overcrowded chicken farm. We are lumped together during food distribution; it’s impossible to have one meter of distance between us.” (InfoMigrants, Sept. 16, 2020)Were it not for heroic African American health care worker, Dawn Wooten, it would not be known that migrant women were being forcibly sterilized in an ICE detention center in Irwin County, Ga. One woman reported that she had not even been properly anesthetized. (Workers World, Sept. 23, 2020)End of an era?Will the administration of Democrat Joe Biden usher in a wave of victories and gains for migrants and the undocumented in the U.S.?The hard-working, greatly committed and superbly organized movement for immigrant rights is hopeful. But they are not unwise. They have been here before. They will not be duped again. They know they must keep up the fight.When the first Black U.S. president was elected in 2008, not only immigrants but many people of color and progressives were ecstatic. Tens of thousands were hopeful. This writer will not forget scenes of people in Kenya out in the streets in celebration or meeting a woman in Harlem who had traveled from Jamaica just to see the historic inauguration. It was a privilege to be in Harlem the night Barack Obama was elected. Black and Latinx people and many others poured into the streets in jubilation. The police could not contain the spontaneous takeover of the streets and did not try. The people controlled the streets that night.But for those who know this voracious, despicable capitalist system, we KNOW WE must fight ON. No matter the election history being made or the glass ceiling being broken, THE STRUGGLE AGAINST THE SYSTEM MUST GO ON.Indeed, Obama tragically earned the title of Deporter-in-Chief as he — with then-Vice President Biden — came to deport more people than any other U.S. president in history.“Biden’s decision to use part of his political capital on immigration may seem bold to some, but to many who have watched years of immigration inaction, the move generates skepticism,” wrote Julio Ricardo Varela, founder of Latino Rebels. (tinyurl.com/y3zzg328)A key leader of the Dreamers movement, Korina Iribe, a DACA recipient in Arizona, wrote in the New York Times, “The first version of the Dream Act, which would have given young people like me a path to citizenship, was introduced in 2001. But nearly 20 years on, our futures still hang in the balance. Comprehensive immigration reform … has failed to pass under both Republican and Democratic administrations.” (tinyurl.com/yy2lc4xs)Since Biden’s election, she continued, he “has taken various actions on immigration, including fortifying DACA. He also sent Congress the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, which would offer a pathway to citizenship to the millions of undocumented immigrants living . . . [here]. The plan has been hailed as bold, but undocumented people have been here before. We can’t go on like this.” In fact, the legislation Biden sent Congress DOES offer a pathway to “citizenship” — BUT would take almost 8 years and has many requirements and fees!Haven’t the undocumented and their families faced enough? Haven’t they been terrorized by vigilantes at the border, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and police agents around every corner, a vile Trump, malicious court and law officials, and factory owners who super-exploit at the workplace?Haven’t immigrant workers shown in this horrid pandemic that they are essential to this country?Eight years is too damn long.Immediate legalization can be granted if Joe Biden wanted it. What is lacking is the political will to stand up to the Republicans and big business. The time is now for all immigrants and refugees to be granted their full human and workers rights.Open up the borders. Close the detention centers and the camps. Abolish ICE and the police or — in the words of the National Day Laborers Organizing Network “Abajo con la POLI-MIGRA! (Down with Pol-ICE).”There is a reckoning taking place. Immigrants and allies are not just hopeful. They are mobilizing and stepping up their tactics in each phase of the struggle for their rights.If justice does not happen now, what will this movement do next to demand what has already been earned a hundred times over?It’s now or never, Joe.

Education Pasadena Unified Is on a Mission to Recruit Preschoolers By BRANDON VILLALOVOS Published on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 | 10:47 pm Top of the News Washington Children’s Center hosted a preschool fair at its Penn Street campus in Northwest Pasadena Tuesday afternoon to help parents kickstart their child’s classroom experience in a neighborhood that educators say has a high need for early childhood services.The fair was a casual gathering to get parents – and their children – acquainted with the preschool curriculum as well as with school facilities and services before school opens in July.“We’re hoping that we can get families to come out and enroll their children into our preschool programs to give them the head start they need before entering kindergarten,” said Pasadena Unified School District Early Childhood Programs Director Ree Hudson.Aside from staff at Washington Children’s Center, Pasadena Unified teachers were on site to help manage the children’s activities in addition to handing out enrollment forms for the parents.Teachers and staff gave tours of the facility and classrooms to give parents a one-on-one opportunity to talk to teachers and learn about curriculum and day to day operations in depth.“It’s important to prepare the children for kindergarten — to get them ready. They have a lot to learn from the first zero to five years of their life and so we make sure that they’re presented with all of the opportunities, developmentally appropriate activities and things to get them ready,” said Hudson.The event featured arts and crafts for the children, including painting and making necklaces, among other activities.Pasadena Unified emphasizes “learning through play” strategies when teaching preschool.“We get the children ready to learn in a group,” said Dina Perez, Site Supervisor at the Washington Children’s Center. “We let them create and use their imagination,” Perez added.The preschool adheres to the Pasadena Unified Strategic Plan, the a 10-year plan created to help define the district, what it stands for and how it is envisioned to grow.“We have a very high quality preschool program here for the children that includes a very interactive, engaging curriculum that we align with the preschool standards from the state of California Department of Education,” said Hudson.All staff members have Bachelors degrees in either early childhood development or a related field.“They’re very familiar with how children grow and develop and we’re here today with all of the staff to present that to the families again in the community. There’s a high need for early childhood preschool or childcare in this area,” said Hudson.PUSD’s preschool program, including the fair and subsequent events at Willard Children’s Center and Longfellow Children’s Center, is supported by a statewide preschool program, although parents who are income-qualified will be required to pay monthly fees for the service.“We do have income guidelines according to whatever the income of the parents, and depending on the family size and the income limit we also offer free services for them,” Perez said. “We have a scale, and some parents get charged as little as $46 a month, and for those above the income guidelines, it will be $800 a month for full-day service.”As to the children’s ages to qualify for the PUSD preschool program, Perez said the state requires children who are turning three years old before September 1 should be enrolled in the program. The program does not require children to pass an entrance exam to get into preschool.After Tuesday’s fair at Washington Children’s Center, the next preschool fairs will be at Willard Children’s Center, at 345 S. Halstead Street, on Thursday, April 20, and at Longfellow Children’s Center, located at 1377 N. Mar Vista Avenue, next Wednesday, April 26, from 4:30 to 6 p.m.For more information, visit www.pusd.us. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News Your email address will not be published.
