The Darty story remains strong. We maintain our ‘buy’ recommendation on the view that the shares are not expensive on fundamentals and have reasonable upside on an alternative scenario.RAMONA TIPNIS| SHORE CAPITALThe elimination of losses in Kesa’s developing markets is continuing apace (as it is at Dixons). We retain forecasts for now and reiterate our ‘sell’ recommendation as performance across the group has been as expected. The UK accounts for over 25 per cent of sales but is a very small portion of profits and this needs to show a step change.KEITH BOWMAN | HARGREAVES LANSDOWNWhen balancing recent share price strength against still intense competition and accompanying cautious management comments, market consensus opinion currently denotes a ‘hold’. Half-year profits have exceeded forecasts, aided by a management focus to increase online sales. A previously announced strategy to emulate many of the initiatives being pursued by rival DSG has also played its part.

Bishops conclude fall meeting with an eye on new possibilities

first_img Selena Smith says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA September 25, 2013 at 7:50 am In similar ways to how our elected officials in government are accountable to us, the people back home – so we the people in the pews have to hold accountable our church-clergy leaders, urging them to “go & do” as well as “preach & teach.” We, the laity, have the power to re-enforce expectations, as well as joining the “partnership” of clergy to get out into our communities whether its volunteering, urging new friends and neighbors to “join us” in ministry, or heading upevents that are invitational to the community at large (i.e. PSA’s to the general public to join an event, placing posters in public places, e-mailing co-workers, neighbors, volunteering to be on boards for no-profits or agencies that are change-oriented and bring hope to the dis-enfrnachised). We can’t expect clergy to do it all … we are the hands & feet of our dioceses and parishes. [Episcopal News Service] The House of Bishops ended its fall meeting Sept. 24 in Nashville, Tennessee, following six days focused on the theme “Transforming Loss into New Possibilities.”“This has been a grace-filled meeting,” said Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori during a telephone press conference after the meeting ended.The bishops looked at mission as going out into the community rather than as staying in “beautiful churches” waiting for people to come, she said. “There were challenges from and to the bishops to get engaged in communities.”From the first day, said Bishop Todd Ousely of the Diocese of Eastern Michigan, the presentation “Missional Wisdom: Beginning Theologically” by Dr. Elaine Heath presented a challenge to the bishops. Heath is McCreless professor of evangelism at Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University in Dallas and co-founder of the Missional Wisdom Foundation.“She talked about going into neighborhoods and engaging people where they are, where they live,” he said during the press conference, adding that the challenge for bishops can go beyond neighborhoods and be applied to reengaging ecumenical partners and other bishops.Throughout the meeting, the 148 bishops attending heard presentations on innovative ways of doing mission, the new Diocesan Partnership Program and the work of the Task Force to Reimagine the Episcopal Church. The bishops also discussed topics such as gun violence, ecumenical partnerships, and peace and reconciliation in the Holy Land.Besides Heath, invited guests included the president of the House of Deputies, the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings; Bishop Gregory Palmer and Mary Anne Swenson of the United Methodist Church; Bishop Tilewa Johnson of the Province of West Africa; Bishop Miguel Tamayo, former bishop of Cuba and Uruguay; Bishop David Rice of the Diocese of Waiapu in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia; Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil Dawani; Dr. Hisham Nassar, Dawani’s coordinator for health care in the Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East; Rabbi Steve Gutow, president of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs; and Canon David Porter, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby’s director of reconciliation.“I was moved by every presentation, but particularly by those beyond our own context,” said Jefferts Schori. Having Dawani, Nassar and other foreign guests, she said, “reminded us at a deeper level of our connection to and engagement with ongoing conflicts around the world. We continue to be called into engaging the conflicts in our midst as well as around the world.”On Nov. 15, the Episcopal Church will host and produce a forum centering on a critical topic for our times, “Fifty Years Later: The State of Racism in America,” and in April a nationwide summit on gun violence will be held in Oklahoma – both “important ways to call us beyond our immediate context,” Jefferts Schori said.The Episcopal Church’s Office of Public Affairs issued daily accounts providing a brief overview of the bishops’ discussions and activities in Nashville.On Sept. 24, the final day’s theme was “Moving Missionally: Episcopal Perspectives.” The day included a panel discussion using biblical pericopes (verses) as a frame of reference.The afternoon of Sept. 23 was devoted to conversation with the United Methodists about the meaning of full communion and how ecumenical partners can draw on common roots to work together missionally in new ways. The Sept. 23 The theme was “Moving Missionally: Practical Applications,”  with a panel discussion including the Rev. Tom Brackett, Episcopal Church missioner for church planting and ministry redevelopment; the Rev. Mary Frances of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; and the Rev. Becca Stevens, founder of Thistle Farms.On Sept. 22, the bishops visited several churches in the area. Jefferts Schori presided and preached at Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville.Episcopal Church Chief Operating Officer Bishop Stacy Sauls gave a presentation on the new Diocesan Partnership Program on Sept. 21. He explained that a new name for the churchwide staff, “The Missionary Society,” is the simplification of the corporate name of the “Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society.”“It represents the effort of reorienting the work of the churchwide staff to work with the dioceses and to be facilitators of mission,” said Sauls, according to a daily account. “This happens as the staff offers (1) support for diocesan ministry (2) leveraging resources for this ministry [and] (3) makes connections throughout the church.” Sauls stressed that this contrasted with a “corporate headquarters” model of church where money flows upward and program flows downward.“My sense is that it’s being very well-received; I’ve only heard positive feedback about the initiative,” said the presiding bishop when asked how the Diocesan Partnership Program had been received. “It’s a great opportunity for churchwide staff to be servants in ways that will serve the whole church more effectively.”Many of the bishops received handwritten notes from their staff representatives “and were delighted by that,” said Bishop Dean Wolfe of the Diocese of Kansas.The thing that excites him most, said Ousely, is that “the churchwide staff is entering into the stream with the dioceses.” So it’s no longer a programmatic focus, but rather the partnership program presents an organized way to facilitate networks and relationships, he said.A Sept. 20 discussion on bridge-building mission focused on the work of peace and reconciliation in the Holy Land and included presentations from Dawani, Nassar, Gutow and Porter.The meeting included daily Eucharists and prayer services. The House of Bishops Spouses/Partners group met concurrently. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA September 24, 2013 at 9:17 pm How did the gun violence topic go?

Rev. C. C. J. Carpenter, Bishop of all Alabama from 1938 through 1968. In those days bishops could hardly avoid being involved in the entire community where they lived. They were looked to as natural leaders and called on to be involved in all sorts of community, (city, state and national) events. That is not automatically the case now and bishops have to be more aggressive about making it happen. – the Rev. Douglas M.

That is why I became an Episcopalian almost 31 yrs ago. However, all I have heard lately is to try to go out in the poor neighborhoods only. Forget those who have some money. Why? They also need God in their lives. Without the people who have ‘some’ money in our parishes, how could we pay for the upkeep of the buildings and keep a priest/vicar? Yes, we are here on earth to do God’s work and God’s will. I don’t think God’s will is to ignore those who have money. I’m a little tired of those who don’t understand the ‘voting ID’ issue either. I worked for 10 yrs at the ‘polls’. Everyone I worked with – Reps and Dems – both believe in the ‘voter photo ID’. Gun violence; that is important, but why don’t we discuss the home life and the mental health issues first? Don’t tell me that just because someone is raised with a single parent that person will lead to violence. I know far too many people who were raised I a single parent home and they are very successful people. Including my father. So, please let’s open the doors again to EVERYONE – poor or RICH or whatever. Everyone needs God in their lives. Not just the poor. Why did the Bishops have to have leaders who all had a ‘degree’ of some sort. How about getting speakers who have much to share who do not necessarily have a degree? Another closed door. Again, open those doors who once accepted EVERYONE! September 26, 2013 at 3:16 pm I’m sorry. What was your point? That we aren’t being fair to the opinions of white, married, combat vets? That the President and George Zimmerman are both mixed, and that no one has pointed that out until now? I’m a little confused. September 29, 2013 at 7:26 am Mission means to be sent or sending. I think that one relationship for mission is between church and society in the messages each sends to the other by actions regarding their power, that is finances. When bishops such as Curry, Ousley, Rowe and their diocesan conventions by priorities, resolutions, and canons use power to care for themselves, their actions send an alarming message to society. Time for a change in leaders who inspire and model mission by their systemic actions.

And does it mean: Engage in issues facing minorities and the poor? Work to remove voting barriers? (a shout-out to Bishop Curry and NC clergy) Does it mean: Get information out to the uninsured on ACA Health Exchanges? Work for Immigrant rights (good work in AZ and elsewhere)? Ensure that “all the sacraments for all the baptized” are available in ALL the dioceses? and does it mean that we as a Church led by our bishops don’t just STUDY but DO (as in Yoda: “DO or NOT Do — not just TRY” to) actively spread racial awareness throughout every level of the Episcopal Church.

Eel’s Nest Echo Park, California The name Eel’s Nest is often given to very narrow lots in Japan, those typically 3 meters or 15 feet in width. The width of this lot in Echo Park is exactly 15 feet and architect Simon Storey felt it was the perfect site to experiment with compact and efficient urban living. By building vertically, simply and minimally, he was able to use every square foot of space to create a live-work house.

The permit from 1927 shows a small house on it’s own lot, which this rules out the possibility it was a carriage house. Its data was so unique that employees at the building department said they had never seen anything like it.

The original house was completely demolished except a few walls in the basement, which are still visible. Because the house is built to the property line the code requires that the house be fire rated on the exterior. To solve this challenge, Simon clad the house cement plaster for fire resistance.

‘25 shots from the racist cops’: The police execution of Willie McCoy

first_imgIt was late evening Feb. 9 when local African-American rapper Willie McCoy, 20, drove into a Taco Bell drive-through in Vallejo, Calif., a small river city about 30 miles from San Francisco. A few minutes later he was found “slumped over the steering wheel of his car, unconscious,” according to a claim filed against the city by McCoy’s family. McCoy performed rap music under the name “Willie Bo.”The wrongful death claim, filed as a precursor to a lawsuit, said police arrived and “unleashed a barrage of gunfire on the young man. The six-person firing squad shot Mr. McCoy approximately 25 times,” striking him in the head, ear, neck, chest, arms, shoulders, hands and back. Police later claimed they saw a handgun next to the sleeping McCoy.“They shot him to pieces,” civil rights attorney John Burris told a press conference and rally of 50 who showed up to support the family on the steps of City Hall Feb. 27. “Something is rotten in the Vallejo police department,” including a “lack of concern and lack of caring for human life.” The community has also mourned Vallejo police killings of Angel Rico Ramos, Ronell Foster and Mario Romero in recent years.McCoy’s sister, Simone Richard, was unsparing in denouncing the Vallejo Police Department. “You all executed my brother Willie. It is kids today they are killing. They say the kids are the future, but you aren’t letting us grow. You are targeting us. This isn’t the first incident. This isn’t the first time, and it won’t be the last time.”A cousin of McCoy’s read a poem she had written, recalling the history of lynching in the U.S.: “Now they shoot at us. If we get pulled over we might not make it ‘til tomorrow. Is this their way of population control?”A friend said, “My friend was shot over 25 times — for no reason. They came out like they was prepared to kill him. They came out to create a situation that will leave our hearts broken for eternity.” Several teenage girls chanted, “Indict! Convict! Send these killer cops to jail!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
