I think these are the best FTSE 100 growth stocks right now

first_img Enter Your Email Address Have generated five-year average revenue growth of 10%+ per year Image source: Getty Images My thinking is that this screen should identify companies growing significantly faster than the market average, are highly profitable, and aren’t valued excessively. In other words, it should identify high-quality growth stocks. Here are the FTSE 100 growth stocks the screen has identified:British American TobaccoLondon Stock ExchangeAshteadJD Sports FashionRightmoveB&M European Value RetailTaylor WimpeyHomeServeTop growth stocks to buy nowThere are a few companies on that list I’ll eliminate straight away as top FTSE 100 growth stocks.British American Tobacco operates in a declining industry so I don’t think it’s a good growth stock. Meanwhile, Taylor Wimpey operates in a highly cyclical industry (housebuilding) so I don’t see it as a good growth stock. B&M European Value Retail has a ton of debt so I’m going to leave that alone too.This leaves us with five top FTSE 100 growth stocks – London Stock Exchange, Ashtead, JD Sports Fashion, Rightmove, and HomeServe.From these five, my top picks right now would be JD Sports Fashion and Rightmove.JD Sports Fashion is benefitting from a number of powerful trends including the shift towards athleisure clothing and working from home. It’s also benefiting from the huge brand power of sportswear giants Nike and Adidas. I think it’s well-placed to continue growing in the years ahead as health and exercise become an increasing focus. Its forward-looking P/E ratio of 23 seems very reasonable, to my mind. Rightmove – which is one of the most profitable companies in the FTSE 100 – is the market leader in the real estate search space. Given the UK’s obsession with property, I think it’s well-placed to continue growing. It should benefit as the world becomes more digital. The forward-looking P/E here is about 34. That’s high, but not outrageous, in my view. London Stock Exchange is also worth a mention. It’s a world-class company that has a strong competitive advantage due to its market position. I like the company a lot. The thing is, it’s quite expensive at present. Right now, the forward-looking P/E ratio is just a tad under 40. This is a FTSE 100 growth stock I’d be looking to buy in the next stock market crash.

Baghuma, médico del [Servicio] Nacional de Salud para la Migración —que se ve al centro. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service] La Iglesia Episcopal ha estado reasentando refugiados durante 75 años, y trabajando con congregaciones locales y agencias de reasentamiento a través de Estados Unidos para darle acogida a algunas de las personas más vulnerables del mundo que huyen de la violencia, la guerra y la opresión política, étnica y cultural.A principios de marzo, ocho episcopales viajaron a Kenia y a Ruanda para aprender cómo es el reasentamiento de refugiados en la actualidad a través de las lentes de refugiados congoleses en una peregrinación de #ShareTheJourney organizada por el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, el servicio de reasentamiento de refugiados de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera (DFMS).La DFMS [Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society] es el nombre con el cual la Iglesia Episcopal está incorporada, funciona empresarialmente y lleva a cabo la misión.“Nuestra esperanza”, dijo Deborah Stein, directora del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, “es que los participantes puedan compartir el entusiasmo que han mostrado a través de esta peregrinación con las personas de sus parroquias, de sus comunidades, de sus diócesis, y convertirse en campeones y promotores de los refugiados: comunicarle a la Iglesia en su sentido más amplio las maravillosas oportunidades que tienen los episcopales que participan en la labor salvavidas del reasentamiento de refugiados, y en última instancia que los episcopales vean que existe un lugar para ellos en este quehacer”.Alyssa Stebbing, directora de servicios comunitarios de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity] de The Woodlands en la Diócesis de Texas, fue a la peregrinación con una conciencia acerca de los refugiados que se acrecentó durante el viaje.“Esta experiencia realmente me ha quitado las anteojeras”, dijo Stebbing, quien se propone participar con la comunidad interreligiosa del área metropolitana de Houston y compartir lo que ella ha aprendido en la peregrinación.El Ministerio Episcopal de Migración es una de nueve agencias asociadas con el Departamento de Estado de EE.UU. para acoger y reasentar refugiados en Estados Unidos. A través de la Iglesia, el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración colabora con 30 comunidades en 26 diócesis.De los 15,5 millones de refugiados en todo el mundo, menos de un 1 por ciento serán reasentados, de los cuales más de un 75 por ciento vendrá a Estados Unidos.El Dr. Muddassar Ban Abad, que supervisa el Centro de Evaluación de la Salud de la Organización Internacional para la Migración en Nairobi, Kenia, conduce a los peregrinos de #ShareTheJourney en un recorrido por las instalaciones. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.En 2014, el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración y sus asociados ayudaron a reasentar a 5.155 de las decenas de miles de refugiados que llegaron a Estados Unidos a través del proceso de selección del Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados (UNHCR). Ellos se esforzarán en servir a otras tantas personas este año, de los 70.000 refugiados que Estados Unidos planea reasentar.Muchos de esos refugiados provendrán de la República Democrática del Congo. A lo largo de los próximos años, el UNHCR se propone reasentar 50.000 refugiados del Congo, el 80 por ciento de los cuales vendrán a Estados Unidos.La peregrinación, que se extendió del 2 al 13 de marzo, financiada por una subvención del Fondo Constable de la Iglesia Episcopal, instruyó a los participantes en la difícil situación de los refugiados y en el proceso que deben seguir [para obtener refugio], de manera que puedan compartir su experiencia con sus iglesias, diócesis y comunidades.En Ruanda, visitaron Gihembe, un campamento que alberga a 14,500 refugiados provenientes del Congo Oriental. Allí escucharon preguntas y preocupaciones de los refugiados en el contexto de una reunión comunitaria. Los peregrinos también se impusieron del proceso de reasentamiento desde una perspectiva exterior a través de reuniones con el UNHCR, el Centro de Apoyo al Reasentamiento en África del Servicio Mundial de Iglesias y otras organizaciones no gubernamentales.El Rdo. Frank Logue, canónigo del Ordinario en la Diócesis de Georgia, les habla a los refugiados durante una reunión comunitaria en el campamento de refugiados de Gihembe. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Para el Rdo. Frank Logue, canónigo del Ordinario en la Diócesis de Georgia, poder reunirse con los refugiados y escuchar sus frustraciones respecto al proceso de reasentamiento resultó ilustrativo.“Creo que es difícil para cualquiera de nosotros apreciar lo que es huir de su país, lo que significa ser un refugiado, de manera que haber tenido la experiencia de reunirme y hablar con los refugiados resultó provechosa”, dijo Logue, que viajó con su esposa, Victoria.La visita al campamento de refugiados incluyó un recorrido por su clínica sanitaria, un aula de una escuela primaria, una iniciativa para la capacitación de mujeres y un aula de inglés como segundo idioma para refugiados que ya han sido aprobados para el reasentamiento.Reunirse con 10 mujeres portadoras del VIH en el campamento de refugiados, que encuentran esperanza en plantar hongos, le hizo una gran impresión a Cookie Cantwell, coordinadora del ministerio de los jóvenes en la IV Provincia.“Una vez que uno se ve expuesto a algo que sabes que cambiará para siempre tu perspectiva, tienes que compartirlo”, dijo Cantwell, que proviene de la Diócesis de Carolina del Este. “Una vez que has sido tocada, tienes que tomar una decisión sobre lo que vas a hacer al respecto”.Una refugiada somalí que trabaja como asistente de salud de la comunidad posa con Cookie Cantwell, durante una visite a Refugee Point, una organización que se dedica a capacitar a algunas de las refugiadas más vulnerables en Nairobi y otras localidades del mundo entero. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Para Cantwell eso significa compartir la historia de las mujeres. “Están viviendo, no se están muriendo”, afirmó.Muchos de los peregrinos compartieron sus experiencias en blogs.“Una de las cosas que les pedimos a todos los peregrinos que han participado en el viaje de #ShareTheJourney es que, cuando regresen a sus hogares, utilicen su experiencia para hablarles a tantas personas como les sea posible a fin de compartir lo que han aprendido: convertirse en promotores de los refugiados, visitar una oficina local de EMM, ver lo que sucede en el otro extremo donde reciben a los refugiados, ver lo que pueden hacer para compartir la información de lo que aprendieron mientras estuvieron en Nairobi [en Kenia] y en Ruanda”, dijo Stein.Jessica Benson, de la Diócesis de Idaho, había entablado una relación con una familia congolesa reasentada en Boise a través de la Agencia para Nuevos Americanos. Pero ver el proceso de reasentamiento desde el extremo opuesto fue una experiencia completamente distinta, dijo ella.Los peregrinos aprendieron, por ejemplo, que una vez que a una familia la destinan para reasentamiento y comienza el lento proceso de los antecedentes, los exámenes médicos y de seguridad, cualquier cambio en el estatus familiar, tal como el nacimiento de un niño, puede retrasar el proceso.“Una de las cosas que se fijó en mi mente es que los niños son examinados al mismo nivel de los adultos”, dijo Benson, añadiendo que ella tampoco conoció a muchos refugiados que vivieran en ciudades, fuera de los campamentos.Antes de que la peregrinación hubiera terminado, Benson ya se había puesto al habla con un legislador estatal para coordinar una reunión. Ella también se proponía hablarles a los estudiantes, en el sistema de educación pública donde el número de estudiantes refugiados haya aumentado, a fin de educarlos en el proceso de reasentamiento, afirmó.Alice Eshuchi, directora nacional de Heshima en Kenia, conversa con Alyssa Stebbing, directora de servicios comunitarios de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad en The Woodlands, Diócesis de Texas, durante una visita a la oficina de operaciones de Heshima. Heshima Kenya se especializa en identificar y proteger a niños y jóvenes que aparecen solos y separados de sus familias, especialmente niñas y mujeres jóvenes y sus hijos que viven en Nairobi. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Luego de visitar el campamento de refugiados en Ruanda, los peregrinos visitaron Heshima, un programa urbano en Nairobi, Kenia, que se dedica a capacitar a niñas y mujeres jóvenes, muchas de las cuales han perdido a sus familias o se encuentran separadas de ellas.Para Spencer Cantrell, miembro del Proyecto Nacional de Defensa de las Mujeres Inmigrantes en Washington, D.C., el contraste entre el campamento de refugiados y el programa urbano era pasmoso. En el campamento, ella visitó el alojamiento de un hombre que había perdido toda esperanza, a pesar de que su familia había sido reasentada en Misisipí. Eso era difícil de reconciliar con la esperanza que emanaba de las actitudes positivas de las niñas y mujeres jóvenes en Nairobi, muchas de ellas sobrevivientes de traumas y violencia sexual y muchas de ellas madres adolescentes, dice ella.“Estoy buscando los medios de compartir esto con la Iglesia”, dijo Cantrell, ex misionera en Hong Kong con el Cuerpo de Servicio de Jóvenes Adultos, que ahora vive en la Diócesis de Washington.Entrar en un aula en el campamento de refugiados llena de muchachos impacientes, cuatro años por debajo de su nivel de escolaridad y compartiendo dos o tres libros, resultó descorazonador para el Rdo. Burl Salmon, capellán de una escuela intermedia y decano de vida comunitaria en la escuela episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal School] en la Diócesis de Carolina del Norte. Sin embargo, el se sintió alentado por la compenetración que el maestro tenía con sus alumnos, dijo. “Él veía la educación como la puerta que ellos tenían para alcanzar el éxito”.“La educación es universal”, dijo Salmon. “Para uno es un salvavidas y para el otro es un hecho”.De vuelta a Estados Unidos, además de establecer relaciones con una oficina afiliada al Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, entre las formas en que los peregrinos y otros episcopales pueden seguir aprendiendo sobre los refugiados y seguir abogando por ellos se incluyen: organizar un evento para el Día Mundial del Refugiado, que tiene lugar anualmente el 20 de junio; animar a una congregación a copatrocinar a una familia refugiada; compartir sus experiencias con refugiados en la Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal; abogar por los refugiados en la esfera local y estatal mediante citas con funcionarios electos y hablando en reuniones cívicas, y hacerse miembro de la Red Episcopal de Política Pública, que participa en política pública a escala federal.Una de las cosas que la Iglesia Episcopal, que está presente en muchos países, debería de hacer es alentar a otros países a aumentar el número de refugiados que reasientan, dijo el Rdo. canónigo Scott Gunn, de la Diócesis de Ohio Sur, uno de los peregrinos y director ejecutivo del Movimiento Adelante [Forward Movement], un ministerio de la Iglesia episcopal con sede en Cincinnati, Ohio, que estimula el discipulado.Hay 2,7 millones de refugiados y solicitantes de asilo en África Oriental, en el Cuerno de África y en la región de los Grandes Lagos. Etiopía y Kenia acogen a la mayoría de las personas que huyen de la violencia y la inestabilidad política en Somalia, Sudán del Sur, Eritrea y el Congo.“Noventa y nueve por ciento de los refugiados no serán reasentados”, dijo Gunn. “También debemos hacer todo lo que podamos para influir en la estabilización de las condiciones en África Oriental; un país está recibiendo los refugiados de otro país.“Si 2,7 millones de personas pudieran ser repatriadas, todo el mundo saldría ganando. Es un juego moralmente escandaloso el que se lleva a cabo con las vidas de las personas”, dijo Gunn. “Ningún ser humano debería jamás tener que pronunciar estas palabras: ‘yo no tengo esperanza’”.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

The Valley House is shaped and adapted to the contours of a northwest-facing valley. Viewing down to the nearby city and river beyond, the house is centred on this valley outlook.Formed as a singular continuous object rising to the valley edge, the principal design strategy is focused on the kitchen where a generous opening is made through the full depth of the building. The suggestion is that the valley remains continuous through the house with outdoor living areas on either side accommodating variable weather conditions.Save this picture!© Luke HeskethParts of the building are pulled away forming protective wings and reveal the inhabitation of the home. Tasmania timbers are a particular focus in the thresholds between inside and outside, while the textural qualities of materials are further celebrated in the interior.Save this picture!© Luke HeskethIn crafting a comfortable and personal family home, the scheme seeks to blend the complexities and subtleties of functional requirements with specific site and microclimatic conditions in a cohesive and consistent manner.Conceived as a singular form, the building is shaped to meet the valley edge at a lower point and then stretched with the site contour, rising in height to the north and east. The building suggestively lifts up to the northern low angle winter sun through the trees.Save this picture!© Luke HeskethThe dark façade has elements pulled away to make shielding wings, with the exposed parts visually light, a conceptual connection to permitting the sun to penetrate the building.Covered outdoor areas are created where space is subtracted from the dark form, with timber conveying a tactile and natural warmth where users transition from inside to outside.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe house is bent around the valley following the contour in the most elevated part of the site, optimising the focus of the living areas down the valley where a single generous opening is made in the building. Centred on the kitchen, decks on each side of the space serve the interior while operable glass openings mediate the unpredictable microclimatic conditions.Save this picture!© Luke HeskethExternally, profiled metal cladding, cement sheet and timber reinforce a subtle link to the country shed typology in the rural context, yet elevate the modest material selections in their appropriation to residential architecture. The metal sheeting’s striation unifies the built form. The roof is articulated to respond to transitions in direction and height of the main building, becoming a significant 5th elevation viewed from the road above, while the eastern protective wing wall screens the neigbouring house above.Save this picture!© Luke HeskethThe buildings structural frame is plantation timber while locally sourced feature timbers are used selectively. The feature-graded selection ensures variations are celebrated and where possible timbers are uncoated. The Tasmanian celery top pine and blackwood timber is locally sourced and milled.Save this picture!ElevationCost management is assisted by the strategic bending of the building in half functionally at the main entry. Effectively more of the budget is allocated to the living areas while the more utilitarian areas are less highly specified. The shallow plan depth and siting with the contours assist with managing site works.Save this picture!© Luke HeskethPhotovoltaic power generation is designed to suit the usage of the inhabitants with managed export to the power grid.

The psychological impact of solitary confinement

first_imgThe following is a slightly edited commentary recorded for “Voices From the Inside” by PrisonRadio.org.The brain and nervous system, or “the mind,” cannot function normally without stimulation. Neither can it function normally when given too much stimulus. The brain and the nervous system must be maintained in a “steady state.” A healthy mind is a product of interaction between itself and other organisms.Bryant ArroyoAlong with reported intellectual impairment, perceptual deprivation [results in] psychotic-like hallucinations and effective changes in extreme behavior — including extreme boredom, restlessness, irritability, anger, unrealistic fears,  anxieties, depression, physical complaints and “development of a childish sense of humor, exaggerated emotional reactions, and excessive irritation by small things.”Prisoners become “dulled from monotonous prison experiences during confinement.” ( D. Schultz, “Sensory Restriction: Effects on Behavior,” 1965)As prisoners are subjected to the newly imposed restrictions of confinement under COVID-19, it has become more difficult for us to engage in educational programs effectively. On Aug. 13, I witnessed a prisoner packing up his property to be on parole the next day. But the effects of sensory and perceptual deprivation this prisoner exhibited remained with him even after his release.It will be extremely difficult to adjust to the “new-norm” because our emotional and mental mechanisms are [being] adjusted to deprivation circumstances. {Then] there [will be] little tolerance for the myriad of sensory input in normal environments. The prisoner’s anxiety becomes so great that he/she will seek a means to return to prison with its decreased input and routine experiences.In the psychological sphere, cruel treatment and its results are not so [obviously] flagrant because mental destruction is less apparent than physical destruction. Damage to the mind is not as visible as a withered hand.But the reality is the same: Human impairment — as a result of destructive treatment while in prison. When treatment in prison leads to a person’s mental impairment, by definition that treatment must be seen as cruel — truly barbaric!The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (PADOC) Administrative imposition of solitary confinement undoubtedly constitutes a form of cruel and unusual punishment under the Eighth Amendment. The distinction between “segregation” and “solitary” is often no more than mere semantics.The detrimental effects of isolation and idleness are just as apparent in both. Isolation as a treatment is punitive, destructive, defeats the purpose of any kind of rehabilitation efforts and harkens back to medieval times. There is no justification for such treatment unless your purpose is to dehumanize and destroy my mind.Prisoners are entitled — as a constitutional right — to fresh air, outdoor exercise, recreation and educational programs while in solitary confinement. Now, PADOC Secretary John Wetzel has minimized the five weekly phone calls to once a week and five free email vouchers to zero a week.The underlying reason Sec. Wetzel previously provided us with both five phone calls and five free email vouchers was due to the restriction of the prison population from having contact visits.We [prisoners] are being denied meaningful educational and work programs under the PADOC’s imposed Administrative Isolation Confinement.As a result, prisoners are spending a substantial amount of time inside their cells/dormitories in absolute idleness. Such unbroken inactivity increases boredom, tension and frustration, which in turn promotes incidents of violence. The evidence reflects that idleness of this magnitude destroys the human element, internally escalating suicides, a host of medical problems, and hurts people, [in turn] hurting people.In conclusion, I’ll depart with this final thought by [philosopher] James Allen: “They themselves are makers of themselves by virtue of the thoughts which they choose and encourage: that the mind is the master weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstances and that, as they may have hitherto woven ignorance and pain, they may know to weave enlightenment.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

He told council members that he believes these three departments are at the “crux of planning” and too much time will be wasted travelling between County Hall, the new offices on Patrick Street and City Hall.“People are frustrated enough and they will have to drive into the city and have to find parking when they want to deal with planning issues,” said Cllr Walsh.“We have made cock-ups with Irish Water and City of Culture. We don’t want another cock-up. Morale is already very low among Council staff and planning issues should be dealt with in the one building,” he added.Cllr Mary Jackman (FG) claimed the Council were obsessed with having everything in the city and reminded council management that they also had an obligation to serve the people of the county.“The city centre is not the centre of the world. It breaks my heart that we can’t keep these services in County Hall, which is a magnificent building. It is more practical to keep these departments here where there is easy access and free parking next door in the Crescent Shopping Centre,” said Cllr Jackman.Cllr Eddie Wade (FF) told council members that it was “a bit late” to be having this conversation. He suggested that Fine Gael councillors should have used their influence at ministerial level on this issue much sooner.“You fell asleep and forgot to make representation,” Cllr Wade told Fine Gael and Labour councillors.Cllr Stephen Keary (FG) said the people of County Limerick were “sold a pup” again.“I always had reservations about the amalgamation of the two authorities. It is a boundary extension by another name,” he said.Meanwhile, Cllr Eddie Ryan (FF) said he was able to deal with all planning issues in his local area office and could not see what the problem was.Director of economic development and planning, Oliver O’Loughlin, said the move was part of a broader economic strategy to have all departments working closely together to achieve the best for Limerick. ‘Fully resourced’ crime office needed in Bruff Ballyneety Community Development Association (BCDA) ‘Sod turning’ held on June 12 Councillors blasted over Aughinish explosionslast_img read more

DOJ sues Yale for allegedly discriminating against Asian American, white applicants

first_imgsshepard/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The Department of Justice has sued Yale University for allegedly discriminating against Asian American and white undergraduate applicants.In a complaint filed Thursday, the department charged that “Yale’s race discrimination includes imposing undue and unlawful penalties on racially-disfavored applicants, including in particular most Asian, and white applicants.”The lawsuit follows a two-year civil rights investigation into the Ivy League institution, in response to a complaint by Asian American groups, which found that race was a factor in hundreds of admissions decisions each year, officials said.“All persons who apply for admission to colleges and universities should expect and know that they will be judged by their character, talents, and achievements and not the color of their skin,” Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband for the Civil Rights Division said in a statement. “To do otherwise is to permit our institutions to foster stereotypes, bitterness, and division.”The DOJ’s complaint alleges that Yale has violated Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.Title VI of the 1965 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin in programs that receive federal financial assistance. The Supreme Court has ruled that colleges that receive federal funds can consider an applicants’ race, along with other factors, though the complaint alleges that Yale violates Title VI by “subjecting domestic, non-transfer Asian and white applicants to Yale College to unlawful discrimination on the ground of race.”According to the complaint, Yale receives over $630 million annually in federal funds.In mid-August, the DOJ demanded that Yale stop using race or national origin in its upcoming 2020-2021 admissions cycle, and gave the university until Aug. 27 to comply with its demands or risk facing a federal lawsuit.At the time, Yale said it did not plan to change its admissions process. According to the complaint, Yale declined an “opportunity for voluntary compliance without litigation.”Yale’s president, Peter Salovey, called the DOJ’s lawsuit “baseless” and its allegations “based on inaccurate statistics and unfounded conclusions.”“I want to be clear: Yale does not discriminate against applicants of any race or ethnicity,” he said in a statement. “Our admissions practices are completely fair and lawful. Yale’s admissions policies will not change as a result of the filing of this baseless lawsuit. We look forward to defending these policies in court.”The lawsuit is seeking a permanent injunction prohibiting Yale from using race as a factor in future undergraduate admissions decisions and damages for “the United States and injured applicants.”The DOJ has also accused Harvard University of discriminating against Asian American students and “engaging in outright racial balancing.” A federal judge cleared the school of discrimination in 2019, though an appeal of the ruling is playing out in court.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
