(Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. Peter Stephens | Sunday, 24th January, 2021 Enter Your Email Address Making a 100% return on FTSE 100 shares may sound impossible at first glance. After all, the index is still trading below its previous highs and faces an uncertain outlook caused by economic difficulties.However, its past performance suggests that taking a long-term view when holding high-quality companies could be a profitable move. While it is never guaranteed to lead to positive returns, it could increase the chances of doubling an initial investment in a stock market rally.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…A long-term view when investing in FTSE 100 sharesThe past performance of FTSE 100 shares shows that they have delivered relatively high returns over the long run. For example, the index was established in January 1984. Since then, it has risen from 1,000 points to reach its current level of above 6,600 points. That’s an annual capital return of over 5%. When reinvested dividends are added to that figure, it means that the index has delivered an annualised total return in excess of 8%. If the index returns the same amount in future, an investment could double within nine years. Clearly, past performance is never a guide to future gains or losses. However, during the FTSE 100’s 37-year history, it has experienced many downturns that have caused major declines for shares. They have included bear markets such as the 1987 crash, the dotcom bubble and the global financial crisis. Although they have caused its price level to decline dramatically at times, the index has thus far always recovered to post new record highs. As such, it seems likely, but not definite, that a long-term view allows an investor to overcome short-term challenges to benefit from the stock market’s growth potential.Investing money in high-quality sharesBuying high-quality FTSE 100 shares could be a means of obtaining higher returns in the long run, as well as lower risks. For example, companies with solid balance sheets may be less likely to struggle during uncertain economic periods. Meanwhile, businesses that have wide economic moats may be capable of delivering higher margins than their peers. This may result in faster-growing profitability over the long run.Of course, buying companies that have such qualities is never a guarantee of avoiding losses or making gains. Any company can experience significant difficulties. However, by focusing on stocks that have such characteristics, it may be possible to reduce overall risk to some extent, and to benefit from stronger performance in the long run.Managing risk when buying sharesA focus on high-quality FTSE 100 shares is just one means by which risk can be reduced. Diversification is another prudent step, since it reduces the risk of one company negatively impacting on an entire portfolio’s performance. While it does not guarantee investment success, alongside a long-term view and a focus on high-quality stocks, it could increase the chances of doubling an initial investment.

Foto de Jonathan Brady/REUTERS.[Episcopal News Service – Windsor, Reino Unido] Cuando millones de personas en todo el mundo sintonizaron sus receptores para ver y celebrar la boda real del príncipe Harry y la actriz estadounidense Meghan Markle, se enfrentaron también a uno de los predicadores más dinámicos que la feliz pareja pudo haber elegido para sus nupcias.El obispo primado Michael Curry, el líder afroamericano de la Iglesia Episcopal en Estados Unidos, habló apasionadamente durante 13 minutos acerca del poder del amor.“El desaparecido Dr. Martin Luther King dijo una vez, y lo cito: ‘Debemos descubrir el poder del amor, el poder redentor del amor, y cuando hagamos eso convertiremos a este viejo mundo en un mundo nuevo. Porque el amor es la única vía’.“Hay poder en el amor. No lo subestimemos”, dijo el Obispo Primado. “Cualquiera que se haya enamorado alguna vez, sabe lo que quiero decir. Pero piensen en el amor, en cualquiera de sus formas o experiencias. En verdad uno se siente bien al ser amado y al expresar amor. Hay algo acertado en esto y existe una razón.El obispo primado Michael Curry predicó durante la boda del príncipe Harry y Meghan Markle en la capilla de San Jorge del castillo de Windsor, Inglaterra. Foto de Owen Humphreys/REUTERS“El amor, el amor es la única vía. Hay un poder en el amor. No lo subestimen, ni lo sentimentalicen demasiado. Hay poder en el amor. Si no me crees, piensa en el momento en que te enamoraste por primera vez, [y como] el mundo entero parecía girar en torno tuyo y a la persona amada.“Hay poder en el amor, pero no sólo en su forma romántica, sino en cualquier forma, en cualquier forma de amar, de tal manera que cuando estás enamorado y lo sabes, cuando alguien te quiere y lo sabes, cuando amas y lo demuestras, realmente sienta bien, hay algo ideal en eso. Y hay una razón para ello. La razón tiene que ver con la fuente, fuimos creados por un poder amoroso y nuestras vidas estaban diseñadas y están diseñadas para ser vividas en ese amor. Es por eso que estamos aquí.“En última instancia, la fuente del amor es Dios mismo. Allí donde se encuentra el verdadero amor, está Dios mismo… Hay poder en el amor para ayudar y para sanar cuando ninguna otra cosa puede hacerlo. Hay poder en el amor para mejorar y para liberar cuando ninguna otra cosa podrá hacerlo, hay poder en el amor para mostrarnos la manera de vivir.“Pero el amor no es sólo acerca de una joven pareja. No es sólo acerca de una joven pareja con la que celebramos y nos regocijamos”.A partir de ahí, el Obispo Primado se refirió al Movimiento de Jesús.“Jesús comenzó el movimiento más revolucionario de toda la historia humana. Un movimiento basado en el amor incondicional de Dios por el mundo. Y un movimiento que encarga a las personas a vivir y a amar, y al hacerlo cambia no sólo nuestras vidas, sino la vida misma del mundo en sí Estoy hablando de poder, de genuino poder para cambiar al mundo”.Él siguió hablando acerca de la redención y del amor altruista y sacrificial.“Jesús sacrificó su vida por el bien de los demás, por el bienestar del mundo. Por nosotros. Tal es el amor. El amor no es egoísta ni egocéntrico, el amor puede ser sacrificial. Y al operar de esta manera se hace redentor. Esa vía de amor altruista, sacrificial y redentor cambia vidas. Y puede cambiar a este mundo… Piensen e imaginen un mundo donde el amor sea la vía. Imaginen nuestros hogares y familias, donde el amor es la vía. Imagínense barrios y comunidades donde el amor sea la vía. Imagínense gobiernos y naciones donde el amor sea la vía. Imagínense empresas y comercio donde el amor sea la vía. Imagínense a este viejo mundo fatigado cuando el amor sea la vía… altruista, sacrificial, redentor. Entonces ningún niño se acostaría hambriento en este mundo nunca más. Cuando el amor  sea la vía dejaremos que la justicia fluya como un torrente impetuoso y la equidad como un arroyo inagotable”. (El sermón completo se encuentra aquí en vídeo y texto).El obispo primado Michael Curry predicó durante la boda del príncipe Harry y Meghan Markle en la capilla de San Jorge del castillo de Windsor, Inglaterra. Foto de Owen Humphreys/REUTERS“Hoy hubo una boda real y una joven pareja entregó mutuamente sus vidas ante Dios y ante el pueblo de Dios, no sólo en la capilla, sino a través del mundo… Y yo les doy las gracias por sus oraciones por ellos y sus continuas oraciones por ellos y por mí y por el Arzobispo”, dijo el Obispo Primado en una entrevista en video con Episcopal News Service después del oficio.Fue una alegría, dijo él, ver a personas de todo el país y del mundo “regocijándose y felices juntos”. Dentro de la capilla, los invitados podían oír a la gente aplaudiendo afuera.“Cuando la pareja recitó sus votos, la multitud prorrumpió en aplausos. En verdad que esto fue algo como el Día de Pentecostés, y la gente lo oyó en muchas lenguas diferentes, en muchas culturas diferentes, de muchas maneras diferentes, y eso es algo para regocijarse”, afirmó Curry.Unos 150.000 entusiastas simpatizantes que inundaban las calles de Windsor, y que siguieron la ceremonia en vivo en sus teléfonos o en grandes pantallas estacionadas a lo largo de toda la ruta de la procesión, quedaron obviamente cautivadas por el mensaje carismático de Curry acerca del amor de Jesús por el mundo y sus palabras de aliento para la pareja de recién casados que inmediatamente antes de la boda fueron nombrados duque y duquesa de Sussex.El oficio comenzó al mediodía, hora local, en la capilla de San Jorge [St. George’s] del castillo de Windsor, a 33 kilómetros al oeste de Londres. De muchas maneras, las celebraciones del día fueron un típico despliegue de la pompa británica, pero algunos elementos, incluido el papel central de Curry y la elección del pastel de boda, se apartaron de la tradición.Los predicadores en las bodas reales suelen ser miembros del alto clero de la Iglesia de Inglaterra.La novia recorrió el pasillo de la iglesia mientras la soprano galesa Elin Manahan Thomas cantaba “Eterna fuente de la luz divina” de G. F. Händel. Y el príncipe Carlos fue quien entregó la novia a su hijo el príncipe Harry, mientras la madre de la novia, Doria Ragland, miraba la escena con lágrimas en los ojos.Entre las celebridades invitadas se encontraban Elton John, David y Victoria Beckham, George y Amal Clooney, Serena Williams y Alexis Ohanian, Carey Mulligan y Marcus Mumford, Oprah Winfrey e Idris Elba. La novia llevaba un vestido diseñado por Clare Waight Keller para Givenchy. En lugar del tradicional pastel de frutas que se espera en una boda real, la pareja escogió al repostero estadounidense Claire Ptak para crear un pastel de limón con flor de saúco que incorporara los vivos sabores de la primavera, cubierto con crema de mantequilla y decorado con flores frescas.Luego del oficio, Curry y su esposa, Sharon, se unieron a la pareja y a otros 600 invitados en el salón de San Jorge del castillo de Windsor para una recepción-almuerzo ofrecida por la reina Isabel II.La capilla de San Jorge ha sido escenario de bodas reales durante siglos. La capilla tiene estatuto de “royal peculiar”es decir, un lugar de culto que cae directamente bajo la jurisdicción del monarca británico, en lugar de un obispo.El Rvdmo. David Conner, deán de la capilla, dirigió el oficio del 19 de mayo según una versión de 1966 de la liturgia del matrimonio del Libro de Oración Común, mientras el arzobispo de Cantórbery, Justin Welby, como líder de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, presidió la boda real y solemnizó el matrimonio.Markle fue bautizada por Welby y luego confirmada en una ceremonia privada en marzo.La Reina es la suprema gobernante de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, que es parte de la Comunión Anglicana, y los miembros de la familia real se espera que sean miembros activos de la Iglesia.La música coral del oficio estuvo a cargo del coro de la capilla de San Jorge, bajo la dirección de James Vivian, organista y maestro de cantores. Otros músicos incluyeron al cellista de 19 años Sheku Kanneh-Mason y al Coro del Reino [Kingdom Choir], un grupo cristiano de góspel dirigido por Karen Gibson. La orquesta fue dirigida por Christopher Warren-Green e incluyó músicos de la Orquesta Nacional de la BBC de Gales, la Orquesta de Cámara Iglesia y la Orquesta Filarmónica. La soprano Elin Manahan Thomas, el trompetista David Blackadder y el organista Luke Bond se incorporaron a la orquesta. Trompetistas oficiales, provenientes de todos los rangos de la Banda de la Caballería de la Casa Real,  ofrecieron apoyo ceremonial.Voces y trompetas se combinaron para acompañar a la radiante novia hasta el altar al son de la majestuosa música del conocido himno “Fui feliz”[I was Glad], compuesto por C. Hubert Parry para la coronación de Eduardo VII, el padre del tatarabuelo del príncipe Harry.Entre los himnos que se cantaron en el oficio estaban “Señor Jesús, eterno rey” [Lord of All Hopefulness] y “Dios de gracia, Dios de gloria” [Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer]. El orden del oficio se encuentra aquí.Luego de la ceremonia, la novia y el novio salieron del castillo en un coche de caballos descubierto Ascot Landau, para una procesión por las calles de Windsor.Mientras las calles de Windsor se animaban con las celebraciones, los festejos de la boda real se extendían mucho más allá del castillo de Windsor y sus áreas circundantes.Iglesias anglicanas y episcopales de todo el mundo, que remontan sus orígenes a la Iglesia de Inglaterra, también celebraron eventos y oficios locales para honrar a la feliz pareja.-Matthew Davies cubrió la boda en directo.

Paluku Selemani Ngewese and 2nd Lt. Songa Safari, were sentenced to death by a military court in Béni, in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu, on 17 April for the fatal shooting of cameraman Patient Chebeya Bankome just 12 days earlier. A third defendant, Capt. Bisimwa, was sentenced to five years in prison for “disobeying orders.”“This murder investigation was completed in an extremely short period of time,” Reporters Without Borders. “For such a serious sentence as the death penalty, the Congolese authorities should make sure the persons they arrested really did do it. We call for a new investigation under the authority of a civilian court to ensure that the initial investigation was sufficiently thorough.”Bankome was gunned down outside his Béni home on the evening of 5 April in front of his wife, who was the main witness at the trial. The press freedom organisation Journalist in Danger (JED) reports that she told the military tribunal that the physical appearance of the three defendants did not match that of the three men she saw shoot her husband.—————————————————–06.04.2010 – Freelance cameraman gunned down in eastern townReporters Without Borders is shocked and outraged by the murder of freelance cameraman Patient Chebeya Bankome, who was gunned down yesterday evening in front of his wife outside his home in Béni, in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu.“If the Congolese authorities investigate this murder in a serious and independent manner and do not neglect any leads, they have an opportunity to end the impunity for murders of journalists that has prevailed until now,” Reporters Without Borders said. “All eyes are therefore turned on them.”The press freedom organisation added: “This appalling killing, the sixth in which a journalist has been the victim in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo in the past five years, has again highlighted the degree to which journalists are exposed to violence in this part of Africa.”Also known by the pseudonym of Montigomo, Bankome worked for several TV stations including state-owned Radio-Télévision Nationale Congolaise (RTNC). Three gunmen shot him four times at point-blank range after taking his bag, which contained video cassettes, his mobile phone and cash.His wife said the gunmen, who were in military uniforms, had waited for Bankome outside this home and had said they had come specially to kill him.A second-lieutenant and a sergeant-major stationed at a nearby armed forces logistics base have been arrested on suspicion of taking part in the murder. “This was not a hold-up, it was a carefully prepared operation,” Béni mayor Mufunza Bayengo told Reporters Without Borders. “We firmly condemn this unfortunate event.”Aged 35, Bankome had covered most of the armed conflicts in eastern DRC, including the fighting in Ituri province. The other five journalists to be killed in the region in the past five years were Pascal Kabungulu, Serge Maheshe, Patrick Kikuku, Didace Namujimbo and Bruno Koko Chirambiza.Reporters Without Borders went to Bukavu in December 2008 to investigate the previous month’s murder of Namujimbo, who worked for the Bukavu office of Radio Okapi, and to meet with the civilian and military authorities in Sud-Kivu province. In a March 2009 report entitled “Bukavu, murder city,” Reporters Without Borders condemned the way the military had repeatedly taken over the investigations and urged President Joseph Kabila and the government to set up a special judicial commission to investigate the murders of journalists and human rights activists.

The event also commemorated Circle of Friends’ 29 years as a support group for the museum.“In 2019, more than 24 percent of the 390,000 guests that visited the museum were able to do so because of the Kidspace for All access programs,” Kate Kohorst, Circle of Friends President for 2019-2020, said during the event. “The money we raise tonight will go to Kidspace for All, furthering the number of guests impacted by your generous support. It brings me great joy to think of the impact that we can have on a child’s future by joining together and raising money for many deserving children who would otherwise not have access to this wonderful museum.”Mike Bryant, interim CEO and Board president of Kidspace Children’s Museum, said the support they have been receiving has helped strengthen and expand the museum’s role in the community.“Our attendance and access programs continue to grow, but most importantly we are called upon as a resource for early childhood development,” Bryant said. “I am particularly proud that we are building meaningful partnerships with Art Center, USC, and Growing Together Pasadena. These relationships emphasize the importance of Kidspace’s inclusive, informal learning approach and interactive environments.”Circle of Friends also holds an annual Pumpkin Festival at Brookside Park that’s been held for the past 25 years. Started in 1994 as a safe alternative to trick-or-treating, this festival has grown into a two-day family event attended by nearly 20,000 people each year. Families from all over Los Angeles come to the Festival to enjoy carnival games, bouncers, a pumpkin patch, and free entertainment.Admission to the festival is free, with tickets required for various activities.Mary Forrest and Christine Muller, co-chairs for the Circle of Friends Benefit for 2019-2020, said their group, since its inception in 1991, has worked to support and aid in the efforts of Kidspace, with one steadfast commitment to providing children with a “safe, fun, and nurturing environment where they can cultivate a love for learning.”For more information about Circle of Friends and their activities, visit www.kidspacemuseum.org/support/circle-of-friends.
