Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Some years, investing is all about the detail. Companies’ individual destinies drive their share prices. 2020 isn’t one of those years. It’s a year of the big picture. Even well-run or high-potential companies have been deeply impacted by macroeconomic factors like the pandemic, lockdowns, recession, and the stock market crash.Relatedly, prices of oil and gold, and interest rates have become increasingly significant too, given the sharp movement seen in them. I think we can still make gains, however, if we adjust our investing sails to this change in wind, which I suspect will guide stock markets in the foreseeable future too.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…#1. Stocks to beat the recessionIn this article I look at four of these macro drivers – recession, oil and gold prices, and interest rates – as the starting point for deciding where to invest. First, the recession. Technically, the UK is no longer in recession, and I for one am not entirely pessimistic about its prospects. But given the unpredictability of the times we are in, the possibility of falling back into it can’t be ruled out either. If there’s another recession or more likely, growth remains soft, I’d bet that defensives will continue to do well. Think about buying FTSE 100 stocks like AstraZeneca and Unilever with this in mind.#2. What to buy when oil prices fallNext, oil prices are closely tied to economic cycles. A slowdown, coupled with a steady move towards cleaner energy sources means that oil prices will remain subdued going forward. The International Energy Agency has revised down its oil demand forecasts for the remainder of 2020. As a result, big FTSE 100 oil companies like BP and Royal Dutch Shell can remain in an uncertain place. I’d counter this trend by investing in companies that support the electric vehicle trend like Johnson Matthey and Rio Tinto.#3. Riding the gold waveA soft economy and gold price increase go hand in hand. It follows that if we forecast that a slowdown will continue for now, the gold price should remain elevated. While there are many gold stocks to choose from, I’d focus on FTSE 100 precious metal producers like Polymetal International. It showed robust equity market performance even before the stock market crash. It also increased its dividend recently. #4. Beneficiaries from low interest ratesLast, consider interest rates. I don’t think there’s any dispute about the fact that low interest rates are bad news for banks. They are a response to poor economic conditions, which means lower credit demand in any case. Lower interest rates further reduce bank incomes. But, low interest rates also spur recovery. As the price of loans falls, both individuals and companies are encouraged to take on credit. I think real estate companies can benefit from this trend. Almost half of UK’s house ownership has been made possible through active mortgages, as per Bank of England numbers. I think FTSE 100 housebuilders like Persimmon and Barratt Developments are good examples of gainers from this trend.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Young adults immersed in faith, advocacy, leadership training

Episcopal Church representative Andrea Bardelmeier is third from left; at front center is Jason Sierra, Episcopal Church officer for young adult leadership and vocations.[Episcopal News Service] Two years ago, Andrea Bardelmeier attended the meeting of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women with a group of other Episcopal young adults. “That was kind of a life-changing experience,” she says.Now a leader in ecumenical and multi-faith ministries at Xavier University in Cincinnati, she is spending this week at another young adult “immersion” experience through the Episcopal Leadership Institute, this time focused on Episcopal Migration Ministries.The institute is an initiative of the Episcopal Church’s Young Adult Campus Ministries Office that officially began last year and grew out of the church’s UNCSW young adult programs that started in 2009. “Basically, it is to connect young adults with the leadership of our networks to really see how we can infuse new leadership into those networks and also help the young adults gain access to what each is doing on a bigger scale,” said Jason Stewart Sierra, officer for young adult leadership and vocations.The institute focuses on four components, starting with short-term immersion experiences where small groups of young adults – ages 18 to 30 – attend a church gathering around an advocacy issue. The first such experience happened in 2009, when 10 young women spent a week at the UNCSW. “That was an opportunity for them to see on a big scale how women were organizing around gender justice and women’s rights and to see how the Episcopal Church was involved with that,” Sierra said.Later programs included one with Churches for Middle East Peace, which included advocacy training with the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations, and an eco-justice immersion experience in Seattle for 20 young adults. So far, 73 young adults from at least 41 dioceses have participated in institute programs, including the UNCSW visits.“The second piece is to really look at Episcopal identity formation, so we open and close every day with a daily office,” Sierra said. They explore Episcopal polity “so that people have a fuller understanding of how this work of advocacy fits into our broader structure.”Third, participants have a chance to be mentored by experts in the field, “not just watch from a distance,” Sierra said. “We try to take them to really where the conversation is vital, so that we’re not sort of babying them into the work, but taking them directly to access the leaders in our church where the work is really dynamic. … With the Middle East Peace, they had this opportunity to go directly to [Capitol] Hill and to be around all these leaders who had been working on this issue for a long time.”Finally, he said, “we really try to engage them in leadership-development training.” This means fostering presentation and facilitation as well as advocacy skills, “so that they can begin to think of themselves as faith leaders, whether or not they’re operating inside the church.”Participants must write about their immersion experiences for their diocesan publications and do a presentation, “so they begin to be seen as an advocacy leader in their home communities,” Sierra said. The institute supports participants in forming communities that stay in touch with each other, and connects them with church networks. “Our role is really to help them make the connection and to prepare them to do the work.”The hope, he said, is that the young adults will begin working in the existing networks, rather than remaining segregated.This week, four young adults involved in campus ministry have joined Sierra at the Episcopal Migration Ministries annual conference in Atlanta. They will spend time focused on how to engage campus ministries with EMM’s work, Sierra said, noting this is the first immersion experience that drew few applicants. “It was somewhat of a surprise.”“That’s interesting,” Bardelmeier said, “because I think it’s really an issue for our time, and I wonder where the disconnect is.”Dayton, Ohio, has an African refugee Episcopal Church gathering, she said.“I would love to do some work connecting Xavier students with refugees,” said Bardelmeir, 29, who is assistant director of the Dorothy Day Center for Faith and Justice at the university.Dan Trudeau, EMM program manager for communications and media development, first worked with refugees through a service-learning group at college in Michigan, volunteering at a program assisting people seeking asylum.“I know how powerful an impact an experience like that can be at that age,” he said. “It was really fascinating for me because I got to meet all these people from all these different countries … It was eye-opening.”At this week’s conference, he said, “Our plan is to have the young adult participants engage directly with the staff that we have in our affiliate network who do outreach to churches.” Participants will receive training on church outreach techniques for building awareness and support for the refugee-resettlement program.“We really want to build the next generation of advocates and supports for refugees in the church,” Trudeau said. “I’m hoping that this first-hand interaction with our local staff people who are operating in their diocese and in their communities will really give these young adults a picture of all that goes on to welcome refugees into the United States and an idea of how they can contribute to really having a positive impact on the effort.”Ashley Pagan, 23, graduated in December from the University of Arizona and learned about the EMM immersion experience from the campus chaplain. Moving to Tucson and working with immigrants had piqued her interest in immigration and refugee issues, she said. She volunteers regularly at a food kitchen and orphanage in Naco, Mexico.“I’m really excited, but at the same time a little nervous and scared,” she said before the conference. “I’m sure it will be a week I’ll never forget.”The “immersion” aspect appealed to her, she said. “I definitely prefer those than just sitting and listening to talk.”Bardelmeier’s first immersion experience was at the 2010 UNCSW. “I met women from all over the world, struggling with so much.” She recalled meeting a woman from Turkey who was kicked out of university for wearing a hijab. “She couldn’t be educated because of her faith. It was those kind of conversations that just punctuated the entire week. It was very powerful.”“I think the enduring impact has been the connections I made with other women in the Episcopal Church throughout the country,” she said. “Ultimately, that’s why I applied for another one.”“What inspired me to apply to this particular conference is that my brother-in-law is a refugee from Cambodia,” she added. “The Christian Reform Church brought him over and resettled him in my hometown. I feel like that’s now part of my story in a way.”“I think the Episcopal Church is kind of leading the way with migration ministries,” she said. “I want to learn more.”— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

Predicadores brindan consuelo, estímulo y humor frente a Harvey

James Derkits, rector la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad del Mar, en Port Aransas, Texas, dijo el 3 de septiembre que las personas estaban allí “viviendo la enseñanza de Romanos”. Foto de Jennifer Wickham vía Facebook.[Episcopal News Service] A veces, las palabras más sencillas son las que mejor funcionan. Eso, y algo de humor.“Entonces”“¡Guau!”“¡Qué semana!”Así fue que el Rdo. Russell J. Levenson Jr., rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Martín [St. Martin’s Episcopal Church] en Houston, comenzó su sermón del 3 de septiembre. Al igual que muchos predicadores que se enfrentaron a la tarea de llevar la palabra de Dios para hacerle frente a la experiencia del huracán Harvey, Levenson combinó el simple consuelo con el humor y la interpretación bíblica con un llamado a ministrar.Cuando le preguntó a su congregación cómo la estaban pasando y se produjo, en respuesta, lo que parecía un murmullo de satisfacción, Levenson dijo amablemente:—“No me digan, todos ustedes están mintiendo”.Eso provocó la risa general.En la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad del Mar [Trinity by the Sea Episcopal Church] en Port Aransas, Texas, cerca de donde Harvey tocó tierra por primera vez el 25 de agosto, el Rdo. James Derkits describió en su sermón una conversación típica.“Eh, ¿cómo te va?“Aguantándolo bien”“Y entonces lloramos durante un minuto. Y luego decimos, muy bien, volvamos al trabajo’”.“Sencillamente, vamos a seguir haciendo eso”, dijo Derkits.Él reconoció que no sabía si podía predicar ese día. “No estaba seguro de que pudiera decir una sola palabra sin llorar”, afirmó Derkits, cuya familia perdió muchas cosas cuando Harvey destruyó la rectoría. Él ha estado ayudando a dirigir las tareas de recuperación en su pueblo.En la iglesia episcopal de San Dunstan [St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church] en Houston, el rector, Rdo. Rob Price confesó que había estado ocupado esa semana con “la labor de hacer la palabra de Dios y no he tenido tanto tiempo como me habría gustado para prepararme para predicar sobre la palabra de Dios”.Afortunadamente, añadió, el leccionario acudió en mi rescate. Las lecturas señaladas incluían la historia de Moisés de pie en tierra santa ante la zarza ardiente  para recibir el llamado de Dios a sacar a su pueblo de la miseria; la exhortación de Pablo a los romanos de no ser perezosos y sí fervientes en espíritu sirviendo al Señor, y el llamado de Jesús a sus discípulos a tomar su cruz y seguirle.Price dijo que había visto a feligreses de San Dunstan dedicados a “simples actos de amor que perdurarán después de que los medios de prensa se hayan ido de Houston” Y prometió que “caminaremos con nuestra familia [la Iglesia] y sus amigos durante todo el tiempo que sea menester”.Levenson dijo a su congregación en San Martín que Dios estaba en todas partes mientras el Harvey sumergía a Houston bajo casi 52 pulgadas de lluvia, lo mismo si ellos habían sufrido daños o habían sido rescatados —o no. Él instó a sus oyentes a actuar.“Luego del caos de la naturaleza, ahora viene la obra de Dios. Ustedes, al estar ante él en oración, son como Moisés”, expresó, diciéndoles que tienen la oportunidad de mostrarle al mundo que son el cuerpo de Cristo. “Ustedes, en tanto permitan que el genuino amor brote de ustedes. En tanto les muestren a otros que son sus discípulos por amar” a las personas en sus comunidades.Él hizo una advertencia contra la desesperación. “No pueden permitir que esta tormenta les defina de tal manera que se queden congelados y estancados, ni pueden permitir que esta tormenta pasé a través de nosotros y por encima de nosotros, porque según el agua retrocede lentamente en algunos lugares, la vida comienza otra vez”, dijo Levenson.Las aguas del bautismo son más poderosas que la inundación del Harvey, añadió, instando a la congregación a trasplantar el santo suelo de su espacio de culto a la comunidad. “Amigos míos, eso es lo que somos llamados a hacer”, enfatizó.Ese ministerio ayudará a reconstruir las zonas azotadas por Harvey, dijeron los predicadores.Un cartel de agradecimiento se ve fuera de un hotel del centro que alberga a equipos de respuesta de emergencia luego del paso del Harvey por Houston. Hebreos 6:10 dice “Porque Dios no es injusto para olvidar vuestra obra y el trabajo de amor que habéis mostrado hacia su nombre, habiendo servido a los santos y sirviéndoles aún”. Foto de Mike Blake/REUTERS.En la iglesia episcopal de San Pedro [St. Peter’s Episcopal Church] en Rockport, Texas, cerca también de donde Harvey tocó tierra por primera vez, el Rdo. Jim Friedel señalaba un nuevo crecimiento simbólico. “Cuando regresé de la evacuación hace unos días, todos los árboles estaban pelados”, dijo. “Pero hoy, si miran detenidamente a los robles de los terrenos de nuestra iglesia, están brotándoles retoños”.Friedel celebró la eucaristía en el estacionamiento de la iglesia en medio de un clima húmedo y bajo un sol abrasador. Durante las lecturas, podría escucharse a una congregación vecina que cantaba “Bendice, alma mía, al Señor”.“Tenemos una oportunidad de responder de un modo que dará nueva vida”, dijo el rector mientras los helicópteros zumbaban en lo alto.Al recordarles a los feligreses que Dios oyó los llantos de los israelitas, Friedel dijo “él ha oído nuestros llantos y los llantos de esta comunidad. Hemos sufrido, y ahora con corazones agradecidos, seguiremos adelante”.El Muy Rdo. Barkley Thompson, deán de la iglesia catedral de Cristo [Christ Church Cathedral] en el centro de Houston, también usó la imagen de comunidades que lo han perdido todo, pero que empiezan a mostrar nueva vida. En una entrada de su blog el 3 de septiembre describió lo que parecía Houston “después que se acabó el mundo”.“A raíz del desastre, más allá del yermo, cuando todo está asolado, el Dios a quien el fuego no puede consumir ni el agua puede ahogar viene a nosotros y nos dice: “yo os enviaré”, escribió. “Dios está llamando ahora —a nosotros, a esta catedral, a esta comunidad de discípulos— y él no nos envía solos. Somos juntos la Iglesia de Cristo, y veremos el amanecer”.La eucaristía en La Trinidad del Mar en la vecina Port Aransas tuvo lugar con los sonidos de la recuperación en el trasfondo. Derkits le agradeció al jefe de la policía y al administrador municipal por estar al servicio [de la comunidad] y por su liderazgo.Dijo que Pablo podría haber encontrado en las maltrechas calles de Port Aransas las bases para el repertorio de virtudes cristianas que les dio a los romanos.“Esto es a lo que es semejante el reino de Dios ; esto es semejante al Hijo del Hombre viniendo a su reino”, dijo Derkits. “Las personas están allegándose en amor unas a otras y en consecuencia estamos viviendo esta enseñanza evangélica y estamos viviendo la enseñanza de [la epístola a los] Romanos”.Antes en el oficio, Derkits reunió a niños en torno a la pila bautismal y les mostró las conchas que había encontrado a lo largo de la playa azotada por el huracán. Él las llamó tesoros que Harvey había arrojado, añadiendo que era símbolos de lo que estaba sucediendo en la ciudad.“Hemos tenido este terrible y desafiante huracán que ha traído todos estos tesoros que han hecho palpitar los corazones de la gente”, dijo él, explicando cómo los residentes y voluntarios por igual estaban cuidando de la ciudad y unos de otros.Él le pidió a cada niño que tomara una concha para que le sirviera “de recordatorio para estar atentos a los tesoros porque aunque hemos pasado un mal rato y vamos a tener un arduo camino por delante, hay ahí afuera montones de tesoros  que podemos [llegar a] poseer”.Andy Doyle, obispo de la Diócesis de Texas, le dijo a la congregación de la iglesia episcopal de San Cuberto [St. Cuthbert’s Episcopal Church] en Houston, que ver a los episcopales ayudando a sus comunidades estaba entre las partes más gratificantes de su trabajo.“Nada me muestra más el reino y el amor de Dios por nosotros que el trabajo que todos ustedes emprendieron la semana pasada y la labor que tienen por delante”, dijo él en su sermón. “Y sería fácil decir que no tenemos los recursos o que no sabemos lo que hacemos. No somos profesionales. No sabemos de reparaciones. Pero eso no detiene al reino de Dios.“Dios nos da un espíritu para entrar en la grieta y cambiar las vidas de la gente. La Iglesia de Cristo está en su mejor momento cuando depone todo su poder, cuando depone toda su victoria, cuando depone su actitud de que “la Iglesia lo sabe todo”. Y, por el contrario, está en su mejor momento cuando se sube las mangas y crea una nueva comunidad de generosidad, de hospitalidad, de vulnerabilidad y de amor”¨.En el este, la Rda. Sharon A. Alexander, rectora de la iglesia episcopal de la Trinidad, [Trinity Episcopal Church] en Baton Rouge, Luisiana, le recordaba a su congregación el huracán Katrina en 2005, la llamada inundación de los 1000 años en Baton Rouge el año pasado y las profundas conexiones económicas de su ciudad con Texas a través de las industrias energética y química.“Ellas extendieron su ayuda a nosotros el año pasado después de nuestra inundación, y ahora nos toca devolver el favor. No está en nuestro ADN en La Trinidad ignorar el sufrimiento de otros”, dijo ella refiriéndose a los texanos. Todos ustedes han demostrado muchas veces cualidades expuestas en el pasaje de hoy de Romanos: esperanza, diligencia, oración, hospitalidad: estas son llaves del reino que hemos heredado de San Pedro”.Alexander dijo que La Trinidad usará esas llaves para ayudar a las personas en la zona de Beaumont, Texas.  Ella le pidió a los feligreses que pidieran en sus oraciones “cómo podemos ser portadores de la compasión y la esperanza de Jesús, tal como nosotros fuimos una vez los beneficiarios de esos santos dones”.Predicadores que se encontraban tan lejos como en California hablaron del Harvey. La Rda. Peggy Bryan, asistente pastoral de la iglesia episcopal de San Andrés [St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church] en Saratoga, California, describió como sus dos hijos y sus familias,  a salvo de las inundaciones en Houston, habían recibido a evacuados, a personas, a un perro y a un curiel. En parte, dijo ella, sus acciones reciprocaban la ayuda que recibieron a raíz del huracán Rita en septiembre de 2005.Bryan hizo notar que tanto CNN como Breitbart News habían reconocido esta clase de voluntarismo de parte de las personas ordinarias. “En serio, si esas dos fuentes de noticias pueden girar en la misma dirección, incluso por un breve instante, hay esperanza”, afirmó. “Y no es esperanza frente a más desastres unificadores, sino esperanza de que podamos procurar el amor audaz y la valiente hospitalidad, de manera que un día maravilloso no sea excepcional, sino natural”.— La Rda Mary Frances Schjonberg es jefa de redacción interina de Episcopal News Service.

We received a commission from a married couple to design a house to be built on a small plot (with an 8-meter frontage and a depth of 30 meters) inserted within a dense and difficult context. The couple, whose children had already left home, asked us for a simple house, obstruction-free and with a strongly contemporary feel.Save this picture!© David CerveraThe layout is based on the idea of using the frontage and the rear extension without interruptions to give a sense of space even with the small area available. Save this picture!Floor PlansTwo axes were defined along the ends of the building, each measuring 1.5 meters wide. All of the services –bathrooms, kitchen, larders, and septic tanks –are grouped together at the south end; all the circulations are at the north. This enables a 5-by-5 meter modulated space between the two axes. Within this sequence of structures, two patios were arranged as a means of filtering the light. Save this picture!© David CerveraTherefore the areas are connected to afford wide open views despite the compactness of the plot. The result is a spacious and bright house where courtyards can be enjoyed all the time. Save this picture!© David CerveraProject gallerySee allShow lessThom Mayne Completes Research on Houston’s Urban FutureArchitecture NewsLiving Capsule Offers Shelter From DisastersMisc Share ArchDaily “COPY” Two Courtyards House / Muñoz ArquitectosSave this projectSaveTwo Courtyards House / Muñoz Arquitectos Projects “COPY” Houseslast_img read more

The John Lewis Partnership and Aviva are the latest companies to join the British Red Cross Disaster Relief Alliance.The companies join existing founder member Tesco. The John Lewis Partnership’s membership follows 25 years of its support to the charity’s disaster response work, while Aviva joins the Alliance as part of its three-year partnership with the British Red Cross to share its expertise in risk management and to help raise funds.The Disaster Relief Alliance aims to bring together companies from across the business world to provide support to vulnerable communities in the UK and overseas before crises occur. It focuses on four key areas of the charity’s work both globally and in the UK: preparedness, response, recovery and innovation.Last year in the UK, the alliance supported communities in Kendal and Carlisle affected by the flooding caused by Storm Desmond. International emergencies also supported by the alliance last year included the Nepal earthquake, the Yemen Appeal and the Europe Refugee Crisis Appeal. The alliance has also donated funds for Red Cross resilience programmes in Sierra Leone and Bangladesh, as well as response efforts in South Sudan.British Red Cross chief executive, Mike Adamson said:“Over the last year the Disaster Relief Alliance has played a vital role in supporting Red Cross disaster preparedness and recovery projects around the world.

Cuban union leader gets ‘attentive and exciting reception’

first_imgVictor Manuel Lemagne Sánchez, a high-ranking union leader representing workers in Cuba’s hotel and tourism industry and also an elected deputy in that country’s National Assembly of People’s Power, was greeted in Baltimore on July 10 by a packed meeting of enthusiastic community, youth and union activists.President David McClure of the Amalgamated Transit Workers Local 1300 opened the meeting by welcoming everyone to the union hall. He described some of the struggles his membership is engaged in, along with bus riders in Baltimore.Sharon Black, an organizer with the Peoples Power Assembly here who chaired the gathering, called up three very important representatives to formally greet Lemagne Sánchez: Fred Mason, former president of the Maryland/District of Columbia AFL-CIO Council; Jermaine Jones, president of the Baltimore Metropolitan AFL-CIO; and Basma Gregg, 19, representing youth of the Peoples Power Assembly and Workers World Party.Gregg presented Lemagne Sánchez with the book “El capitalismo en un callejón sin salida/Capitalism at a Dead End.” She explained how youth in Baltimore, especially Black youth, must endure unemployment, racism and police terror.Lemagne Sánchez presented an in-depth slide presentation on the U.S. blockade of Cuba and also shared some impressions of his coast-to-coast trip meeting union members in the United States. He explained how one woman told him she had to pay $200,000 for open-heart surgery, while if she lived in Cuba she would receive medical care for free.Lee Patterson of Workers World Party thanked Cuba for giving asylum to Black Liberation exile Assata Shakur. Dr. Ken Morgan, a Cuba solidarity activist, asked Lemagne Sánchez about Cuba’s policies on racism.Hearty welcome from Baltimore labor leadersThe next day, approximately 35 to 40 Baltimore union leaders met with Lemagne Sánchez in the large conference room of the Service Employees Union in downtown Baltimore. SEIU 1199 represents nursing home and hospital workers in the city, the largest being Johns Hopkins and Mount Sinai hospitals.Among those greeting the Cuban labor leader were Fred Mason, president emeritus of the Maryland/DC AFL-CIO; Courtney Jenkins, president of the Baltimore Coalition of Black Trade Unionists and member of American Postal Workers Union Local 181; the Rev. Cortly “C.D.” Witherspoon of the Peoples Power Assembly; Lena Redman of Workers United; David McClure, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1300; Royce Adams of the International Longshoremen’s Association; and Ricarra Jones, political organizer with SEIU 1199.Of special significance is the fact that many of the labor leaders at the reception have led delegations to Cuba in the past, including Fred Mason and Mike Smith of the National Association of Letter Carriers.It has been nearly 20 years since the last multicity visit of a Cuban labor representative. Brother Lemagne Sánchez stated that he was closing his 15-day tour of U.S. cities with “a golden stamp of approval” and that “it has been amazing to see the amount of people in Baltimore in solidarity with the Cuban Revolution. There has been a great exchange in terms of a working relationship with groups and organizations in both Cuba and the U.S.”He added, to the applause of the audience, that Baltimore had been “the most attentive and exciting reception during my visit to the U.S.” The following day, he said, he would be returning to the National Assembly of People’s Power, Cuba’s legislative body, in which he participates as a delegate from the municipality of Trinidad.Goals of the Central Union of Cuban Workers Lemagne Sánchez narrated a slide presentation on the structure and functions of the Central Union of Cuban Workers (CTC) in which he emphasized the three major ongoing goals of the organization: (1) organizing the development of the economy and enhancing the productive capacity of the workers, (2) providing ideological education for the workers, and (3) increasing the role of women in unions and Cuban society in general.He explained that there are 16 national unions in the CTC with more than 2.9 million workers. Of those, 2.7 million are employees of the state. Altogether, more than 90 percent of Cuban workers are organized in the CTC.Asked if this is compulsory, Brother Lemagne Sánchez explained that union membership is voluntary. The union leaders at the base are responsible for both recruiting as well as accepting the dues from each member by hand. The CTC has a congress that is elected every four years. At the base level, union leaders are elected every two and a half years by secret ballot, and at the leadership level they are elected every five years, including the president of the CTC.At the last congress of the CTC, its 20th, the two main resolutions discussed and passed were to mobilize the workers ideologically in the present stage of Cuban socialism, and to increase productivity with the goal of greater efficiency, along with an increased amount of autonomy and flexibility in the workplace. As an example, he cited the case of women workers who have to drop their children off at schools. The time they have to arrive at their workplaces was adjusted.Visit to Freddie Gray MemorialImmediately following the union luncheon, despite 106-degree weather, Lemagne Sánchez traveled with activists to the site where Freddie Gray was beaten and arrested by police before he died in 2015. The Rev. C.D. Witherspoon, who lives in the neighborhood, welcomed the Cuban unionist. Courtney Jenkins of the American Postal Workers Union and the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists explained that he grew up in this community.Mike Smith from the National Association of Letter Carriers, who is also an official with the Baltimore Metropolitan AFL-CIO Council, explained that Freddie Gray’s sister was a member of his union. The group presented Lemagne Sánchez with a Peoples Power Assembly banner reading “Justice for Freddie Gray” that had been in the forefront of countless demonstrations during the period after Gray’s death.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Three Midi Libre reporters under judicial investigation over leaked audit

They are evidence of a tendency for authorities to take a tougher line towards the press, which is why France was 35th in our annual worldwide press freedom ranking.”Midi Libre editor Philippe Palat said his journalists were being hounded by the judicial authorities. “They are identified by name in the investigation that has been opened,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “This has but one aim, to force them to reveal their sources, something they will never do. We will not let ourselves be intimidated. We went on covering Jacques Blanc’s management of the region’s affairs in our columns and we continue to do so in the future.”The Montpellier regional crime squad raided Midi Libre on 5 July and copied the contents of its computers’ hard disks in an attempt to discover how its journalists obtained a preliminary report by the Regional Accounting Commission on Blanc’s handling of the region’s finances from 1986 to 2004. Midi Libre published the report in its issues of 25 and 26 October 2005. May 10, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
