London’s churches throw open doors to welcome Olympics

first_img Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Collierville, TN [Diocese of London] Visitors to the 2012 Olympics will be able to escape one of the busiest periods the capital has ever seen by exploring its rich Christian heritage. The Diocese of London has published a guide to walking tours of the city’s places of tranquillity, prayer and historic interest. All over London, churches will open their doors to visitors throughout the Games.Available both as a free download and as a full colour booklet available free of charge from participating churches, ‘Faith Walks’ comprise six trails starting out from Olympic venues. More than 40 churches are participating and will be open to the public all day throughout the duration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.Some of them are famous London sights in tourist hotspots, such as St Martin-in-the-Fields and St James, Piccadilly. Others are hidden jewels that have never been open regularly before; they will surprise and delight even Londoners who think they know their city well.Spanning every period in English architecture, all of them are a proud testament to the capital’s astonishing heritage and the fascinating, ongoing story of its diverse communities.Some of London’s most venerable buildings will be sporting QR codes: on two of the walks, visitors will be able to use them to download information from the Bible Society revealing how Christianity has helped to shape the city and its history.The Bishop of London, Richard Chartres, welcomed the launch of the guide, saying:“Visitors and Londoners, this summer the capital’s huge variety of churches stand ready to make you welcome. All of them are lively places of worship but they are at the same time community hubs treasure houses of memory. This booklet is an aperitif. I hope you will go and enjoy the main course.”‘Faith Walks’ is available to download.Among the sites highlighted in Faith Walks are:St Leonard, Shoreditch: a Georgian gem with superb rococo carving, used to film the BBC TV series ‘Rev.’St Dunstan, Stepney: one of the most ancient churches in London, located in the middle of the Cockney heartlandsAll Souls, Langham Place: the BBC church, right next door to Broadcasting House and known the world over thanks to the services that have been transmitted from thereThe Grosvenor Chapel: the Grosvenor estate church where General Eisenhower was a regular during World War II and ‘Love, Actually’ was filmed.St Clement Danes: designed by Sir Christopher Wren and famous from the nursery rhyme ‘Oranges and Lemons’, since reconstruction after devastation in World War II the RAF churchSt Patrick, Soho Square: a Victorian-era Italian-style Catholic church, recently magnificently restored and ministering to the most vibrant part of the West End.

Bear market not over despite recent gains: Analysts

first_img“We think foreign investors would continue to book a net sell on Indonesian equity in May,” he said.The global meltdown began to hit the local stock market following the announcement of the country’s first COVID-19 case on March 2. By March 23, the JCI had plunged to 3,900 points – the lowest seen since October 2015 – due to COVID-19-driven market panic.The index began to show signs of recovery in the following days, after the exchange introduced a new measure to protect the index from falling further. Between March 23 and April 29, the index climbed 14.48 percent.On Thursday, last week, the JCI gained 3.26 percent, in line with the increase in most regional price indeces. The recent meltdown of share prices on the Indonesian stock exchange is not over despite signs of recovery in the past two weeks, stock analysts have said.Mirae Asset Sekuritas Indonesia said in its monthly strategy report published on April 6, “there are more reasons to think that the volatility is not over yet”. The securities company estimates that manufacturing activities “will even get worse” in April and May.When asked about the outlook for the month ahead, Mirae Asset head of research Hariyanto Wijaya told The Jakarta Post on Monday that the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI), the main gauge of Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), was likely to undergo a correction in May due to weak economic data and an outflow of capital. However, share prices on the local exchange reversed the upward trend on Monday amid selling pressure from both local and foreign investors. The index lost 2.5 percent to end the morning session on Monday at 4,595 points, marking a 27 percent decrease so far this year.Artha Sekuritas Indonesia vice president Frederik Rasali shared the cautious view. He told the Post on April 30 that “as long as the economic sentiment is not good, the increase in the JCI is still very risky”.He explained that the relatively calm market was a result of the exchange’s newly introduced 7 percent limit-down policy, which protected the index against free-fall.Frederik went on to say that he believed foreign investors would continue their selling spree and opt for cash for higher liquidity.Over the past five weeks, share sales by foreign investors exceeded buys by Rp 7.3 trillion (US$472 million). The average net foreign sell volume per week between March 23 to April 24 reached Rp 1.46 trillion. According to IDX statistics from April 30, foreign net sales have reached Rp 19.13 trillion this year.“On the outlook, if we look at the global conditions with regard to the spread of the coronavirus, [on the chart], it has started to plateau. Hence, there is a possibility that the market, too, will recover,” Jasa Utama Capital analyst Chris Apriliony told the Post on April 30.He suggested that the increase in the number of countries that have loosened their lockdowns following the flattening of their COVID-19 curve should provide positive sentiment for investors.Recently, a number of European Union countries have announced an easing of restrictions, including France, Italy and Spain. South Korea has also decided to lift several movement restrictions, as has Vietnam. Several sectors have been performing well on the local bourse amid the health crisis. Chris observed that telecommunications and consumer goods were among the best performers, yet the retail sector had not been performing well as the pandemic hit the sector quite hard.Meanwhile, Asian stock markets fell sharply on Monday as risk sentiment turned sour after US officials tried to pin blame for the coronavirus pandemic on China, stoking worries of fresh tensions between the world’s top two economies, Reuters reported.Singapore shares tumbled as much as 3.3 percent, their sharpest intraday drop since March 30, while Malaysian shares shed as much as 2.3 percent, their worst in six weeks, ahead of March trade data.Topics :last_img read more

China Sparks World Container Traffic Boom

first_imgPreliminary data from Drewry’s Container Trades Statistics (CTS) indicates that world container traffic surged by 10% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2017, fuelled mainly by spikes in imports and exports from China.The CTS numbers point to intra-regional trade as the primary driver of growth with volumes up by 17%, versus 7% for deep-sea traffic.Nearly half of the extra 2.6 million TEU volumes handled in the first three months of 2017 came from trade with its neighbouring Intra-Asia partners, while domestic cabotage and trade with North America each contributed another two-tenths of the additional volumes.The CTS data also confirms the large tilt towards Chinese imports, with traffic from Drewry’s sample of trading regions increasing by staggering 28%. Exports to the same regions increased by 11%. While the rebound in container volumes appears to be broad-based it is clear from its well above-average growth that China is very much at the epicentre, Drewry said.The small sample of carrier liftings information that has been published alongside first-quarter financial statements goes some way to corroborating CTS’ big-growth story.The average volume growth for the six carriers in 1Q17 was 10%, with a wide spread between the slowest growing company Zim (4%) to the fastest growing line MOL (17%). Between them, the six lines operate about 30% of the world’s containership fleet.It’s fair to say that the few, if any, saw this extreme growth coming, Drewry said. If confirmed, a quarterly rate of 10% for loaded container traffic would far exceed anything seen since 2010 – when demand rebounded sharply following the crash of 2009. Over the past two years 2015-16 the average quarterly rate was a mere 2.3% despite some uplift from 2Q16 onwards.Looking at the remainder of the year, Drewry says it is still to early to make any projections seeing that the container trade has seen its share of growth spurts that have fizzled out and regressed back to the downwards trend soon enough, although admittedly none in recent years have been close to the same magnitude as the latest trade lane numbers suggest.The first quarter is traditionally the slowest quarter in the year as things quieten down after the rush to get goods in stores for the Western hemisphere holidays. Since the start of this century the first quarter on average accounts for 23.4% of the annual tally in world container traffic.However, that ratio has been very consistent in recent years so there really is no identifiable trend shift to support the theory that some shipments were brought forward, although Drewry is not discounting that possibility. Some shippers may have wanted to move goods ahead of new and higher contract terms and anticipated spot rate increases, the consultancy said.Drewry says that there is still some cross-checking to be done, but it does seem that demand growth was much stronger in 1Q17 than previously anticipated and will necessitate an upgrade in the consultancy’s full-year forecast.last_img read more

Equitix Buys Statkraft’s 40% of Sheringham Shoal for GBP 558 Million

first_imgUK fund manager Equitix will buy Statkraft’s 40% stake in the 316.8MW Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm for GBP 558 million, with the transaction expected to be completed by the end of December. Image source: Statkraft/ archiveThis comes after the company sold its stake in the 860MW Triton Knoll project to innogy in October.Statkraft started the divestment process for Sheringham Shoal and Dudgeon offshore wind farms in June 2017, a few months after it sold its 25% interest in the 4.8GW Dogger Bank offshore wind projects to partners Statoil.Two years ago, Statkraft announced it will no longer invest in offshore wind, and informed in early 2016 that it was evaluating its stakes in existing projects. Nevertheless, the company stated that the UK offshore wind sector presented a significant opportunity to develop a secure, sustainable, cost-competitive energy source and that it remained open to new power purchase agreements.For Sheringham Shoal, Statkraft holds a power purchase agreement which extends until November 2029.last_img read more
