I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Stock market crash: I’d invest £100 a month in cheap UK shares in an ISA to retire early Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Investing £100 a month in a Stocks and Shares ISA after the recent market crash may not sound like a worthwhile move to many investors. They may feel UK shares offer a risky short-term outlook, or that £100 per month is unlikely to make a significant impact on their retirement plans.However, investing in UK shares now provides the opportunity for investors to benefit from a likely stock market recovery. Furthermore, investing over a long timeframe can produce surprisingly large returns that make a positive impact on your chances of retiring early.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…Recovery after a stock market crashWhile some UK shares have rebounded after the market crash, others continue to trade on low valuations. This is perhaps to be expected, since they face difficult operating conditions in some cases. As such, investors may experience paper losses in the short run. Especially if risks such as Brexit and a second wave of coronavirus impact negatively in investor sentiment.However, over the long run, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 offer recovery potential. They have solid track records of overcoming a variety of economic challenges to post new record highs. And, while they may not be all that popular among investors compared to other assets such as gold and Bitcoin at the present time, UK shares could offer high returns in the long run as the economy’s performance improves.Furthermore, many UK shares are trading at cheap prices compared to their historic levels following the market crash. This may provide investors with the chance to buy them at a discount to their intrinsic value. The end result could be superior performance than the stock market’s past returns, which may boost your portfolio’s growth rate.Investing regularly in a Stocks and Shares ISAStarting to buy UK shares after the market crash could be a sound move over the long run. For example, investing £100 per month at an annualised return of 8% (which is the FTSE 100’s long-term return) would lead to a portfolio valued at around £310,000 over a 40-year period.Certainly, not all investors will have 40 years to grow their portfolios. However, the example serves to show that even modest amounts invested regularly in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 can grow to surprisingly large amounts. Many UK shares are trading at bargain prices at the present time. That means there may well be scope to generate even higher returns over the coming years.Therefore, now could be the right time to open a Stocks and Shares ISA to start buying cheap stocks after the market crash. Short-term gains may be disappointing due to ongoing risks facing the economy. However, long-term investors can certainly benefit from the stock market’s recovery potential to improve their retirement prospects.

Los departamentos de la DFMS permanecerán igual, pero la terminología está siendo reorientada para concentrarse en la misión como prioridad.Todo el personal de la DFMS tendrá nuevas designaciones para reflejar las funciones del personal:• Liderazgo de la Misión (conocido anteriormente como el Grupo de Supervisión Ejecutiva)• Redes de Conexión de la Misión (conocido anteriormente como personal del programa)• Apoyo a la Misión (conocido anteriormente como administración)• Administración de la Misión (conocido anteriormente como asistentes administrativos)De particular interés es el paso de asignar a un miembro del personal para que sirva como coordinador de enlace con las diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal y las zonas regionales. “Nosotros estamos reorientando la labor del personal para apoyar y fortalecer lo local en vez de funcionar de manera independiente de lo local”, explicó Sauls. “Cada diócesis y zona regional en la Iglesia Episcopal tendrá un miembro del personal de la red de conexión de misión para hacer que los recursos —humanos y financieros—estén disponibles a nivel de toda la iglesia para apoyar y alentar la misión a nivel local y en asociación con el nivel local. Mi meta es que para el mes junio ya me haya comunicado con cada obispo del diocesano sobre asignar un coordinador de red de conexión para cada diócesis y región”.Además el obispo Sauls está conduciendo un estudio para discernir y desarrollar modelos efectivos para que el personal trabaje fuera de la oficina remotamente. “La meta es tener el personal de red de enlace más conectado, para responder y estar accesible a los líderes locales”, dijo Sauls.Nuevo InquilinoEl obispo Sauls explicó que el segundo piso fue solicitado específicamente por el nuevo inquilino porque tiene una entrada y salida privada. “Esto nos beneficiará porque al ocupar el espacio el nuevo inquilino no se aumentaría el tráfico en el vestíbulo o en los ascensores”, él explicó.Pronto el obispo Sauls espera nombrar al inquilino.El arrendamiento del segundo piso aportará cerca $380.000 de nuevos ingresos en los primeros 12 meses.El piso adicional se ha hecho disponible para ser alquilado al utilizar el espacio de manera más eficiente, lo que permite la consolidación de las oficinas existentes. Algunas oficinas de personal serán reubicadas dentro de la oficina central de la iglesia en la ciudad de Nueva York con algunos miembros del personal que trabajaran remotamente. Estos movimientos ocurrirán en el mes abril.Además el obispo Sauls cree que la mitad de otro piso puede estar disponible para inquilinos. Algunos posibles inquilinos ya han preguntado por esas oficinas y han inspeccionado las mismas que podrían ponerse a disposición.Este nuevo arrendamiento o inquilino no tiene impacto en la conversación actual del futuro de la sede central de la iglesia. “Estas acciones no tienen relación con el informe del edificio que fue presentado en la reunión del Consejo Ejecutivo en el mes de febrero”, subrayo el obispo Sauls, agregando que el nuevo arrendamiento es adyacente a los arrendamientos existentes, lo que significa que “la posibilidad de vender el edificio, si el Consejo Ejecutivo así lo decidiera, no se ve afectada”.“Estamos viendo el edifico como uno de los muchos activos que Dios nos ha otorgado para la misión. Arrendar el espacio es una forma de generar el máximo potencial de las bienes raíces para aumentar los ingresos para la misión”, dijo el obispo Sauls. “A su vez, estamos utilizando el espacio para el personal de la DFMS de forma que esté dirigida a mejorar el trabajo del personal en servir a la iglesia”.El nuevo modelo y el nuevo inquilino no aumentan los gastos de las operaciones del presupuesto aprobado por la Convención General del 2012.

The following are statements concerning the meeting. The theme for the fall meeting of the Episcopal Church House of Bishops is Expanding the Apostolic Imagination.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori:This meeting has offered abundant opportunities to expand our vision of what is possible as we engage God’s mission. Our chaplain the Rev. Simón Bautista reminded us this morning that we are all bound for home, that we’re meant to travel light – and that “home” is the Reign of God. Our chaplain the Rev. Stephanie Spellers challenged us yesterday to take the journey to unexpected places and communities. The bishops of this Church will return to their dioceses with renewed energy and increased willingness to risk more for the gospel and travel a bit lighter. We have built new relationships with our partners in Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and with our brother and sisters in Taiwan. We’ve discovered new readings of the old, old stories and new theological perspectives rooted in different parts of God’s creation. With hearts and minds expanded, we know ourselves part of a body larger and with deeper bonds than we imagined. And we give thanks for knowing what it is to be received as Christ himself. The hospitality of the Diocese of Taiwan has been full measure, pressed down, and overflowing. May God continue to richly bless this part of The Episcopal Church.Bishop Dean E. Wolfe of Kansas, vice president of HOB and co-chair of the HOB Planning Committee:The 2014 meeting of the House of Bishops has been an extraordinary and historic gathering.The first meeting of the House of Bishops in Asia, this meeting has turned our attention to the vibrant ministries of The Episcopal Church taking place in Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong. The Bishop of Pakistan, Samuel Azariah, challenged us with reports of Christian persecution in the Middle East and the heroic witness being made by Christians in that region. We have been inspired by visits from the Primates of this region and their forthright descriptions of their context for ministry. We have been encouraged by our visits to the faithful congregations of Taipei, motivated by fresh models for theological education, and touched by the overwhelming generosity and hospitality exhibited by our hosts.All of us who have congregants from Asia have gained a deeper understanding of the context from which our brothers and sisters have come and a greater appreciation for the Christian witness along the Pacific Rim. We traveled a very long way and at no small expense to come to Taiwan to reinforce a principal which is dear to us; that every diocese is an essential member of our family of faith and no diocese is too small or too far away. We are present here as an outward and visible sign of our commitment to our brothers and sisters in Asia and we have been richly blessed by our time together during this meeting in Taiwan.Bishop Todd Ousley of Eastern Michigan, co-chair of the HOB Planning Committee:This gathering of the House of Bishops in the Diocese of Taiwan has been the perfect crucible for engaging our theme, “Expanding our Apostolic Imagination.” Removed from the familiarity and comfort of our own dioceses and cultures, we have been challenged by stories of Christian witness not only in Taiwan but also in other Asian contexts such as Hong Kong, Pakistan, Japan, Korea and the Philippines. My own imagination continues to expand as I consider the vision of the future shape of the Church as shared by Archbishop Nathaniel Uematsu of Nippon Sei Ko Kai (Anglican Church in Japan): the Church as a Community of the People of God who are gathered, nourished, and sent to proclaim peace and reconciliation, grounded in repentance. I leave this meeting reminded that to be an apostle, one who is sent, and to invite others to be people sent to proclaim God’s message of peace and reconciliation, we must not rush headlong into action with programs and events. Rather, we must begin with self-examination and spiritual acts of repentance that ground our message and lend it integrity. Only then will our message of peace and reconciliation be received as the Good News that it indeed is.We are immensely grateful for Bishop Lai and the gracious hospitality of the people of the Diocese of Taiwan for their tireless efforts to provide this experience and space for creative reflection. On behalf of the Planning Committee and the entire House of Bishops, we give thanks for Lori Ionnitiu of the General Convention Office who has coordinated all onsite arrangements. Finally, the Rev. Canon Charles Robertson and Ednice Baerga of the Presiding Bishop’s staff have once again worked tirelessly behind the scenes to afford us this opportunity to expand our apostolic imaginations.Bishop Diane Jardine Bruce of Los Angeles, assistant secretary of HOB:There were 112 bishops and many spouses in attendance at the meeting, with the Bishop Bob G. Jones, retired from the Diocese of Wyoming, being the senior bishop present. This has been an extremely worthwhile and valuable trip as a member of The Episcopal Church and especially Province VIII. With the growing Asian community in the United States, especially on the West Coast including my home diocese of Los Angeles, having firsthand knowledge and witness of the context and content of ministry and mission, we are able to more directly address our mutual needs. I am grateful to Bishop Lai and his clergy and laity and the people of the Diocese of Taiwan for their radical hospitality and their ability to do mission and ministry in the name of Jesus Christ in diverse locations. We have much to learn and shareBishop David Lai of Taiwan, host of the HOB meeting:Dreams come true not just for me, but also for all the bishops and their spouses – everyone of us. I believe the trip may have taken a long time – 16 hours – to get here, but the things we experienced are full of experiences to remember, to share and to learn about and to tell their church members. The memories will remain longer than 16 hours. All praise the Lord.

“Out in the Union: A Labor History of Queer America,” by Miriam Frank, Temple University Press, 2014The importance of “Out in the Union” is clear from the first page. Here is a book devoted solely to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer labor history, a contribution that is long overdue. Frank is a master teacher of humanities at New York University. The paper edition was released this year.All civil rights struggles impact the labor movement and vice versa. The struggle for LGBTQ liberation is no exception. Yet if you go to the library, even at a university, you will find nothing about the LGBTQ movement in the labor studies section and nothing about unions in the LGBTQ or queer or gender studies sections.Much of the book is based on oral histories taken from LGBTQ union members, including both leaders and rank-and-filers. Therefore, the history begins in the late 1960s, when some of the interviewees were starting their working lives. Frank acknowledges that LGBTQ labor history begins earlier, in the 1940s and 1950s, when, for example, the communist-led Marine Cooks and Stewards Union took a bold position of “no Red-baiting, no race-baiting, no queer-baiting.”The book is well organized, is a readable length and does not attempt an encyclopedic view. Frank takes a topical rather than chronological approach, devoting each chapter to a different aspect of how LGBTQ workers participate in the life of their unions. Frank discusses coming out on the job, being LGBTQ and in union leadership, and the shaping of alliances through important, game-changing projects, like the Coors beer boycott of the 1970s and the defeat of California’s 1978 Briggs initiative, which would have prevented LGBTQ teachers from teaching.Frank details how the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 1990s impacted the labor movement. Union members were dying or watching their life partners die. Workers with HIV/AIDS were subject to horrible discrimination, including firings. At the same time, workers at HIV/AIDS service agencies wanted to be represented by a union.The process of transitioning on the job is told through the eyes of Joni Christian, a now-retired trans woman on the assembly line at General Motors’ Lordstown, Ohio, plant.An essential forceThere are instructive stories of LGBTQ union organizers. There are unique features to every workplace, differences in the nature of the work and in the composition of the workforce. Those differences require a thoughtful approach to union organizing.In one story, the United Food and Commercial Workers sent in a gay man, a top union officer, to talk with workers in quality control at a meatpacking plant. The entire department, primarily gay men, went union.There are some shortcomings to the book. Some individuals who played key roles inside their unions to advance the cause of LGBTQ members are barely mentioned.While the working lives of the book’s protagonists begin after the 1950s, it would have strengthened the book to look at how that period changed the orientation of the U.S. labor movement. The Congress of Industrial Organizations’ purge of the left-led unions and of leftists in other unions had a hugely negative impact on civil rights unionism. Civil rights groups that worked closely with the CIO, including the Committee for the Defense of the Foreign Born, the National Negro Congress and the Congress of Spanish-Speaking Peoples, were destroyed by the witch hunt. Inside the labor movement, the Cold War shifted labor’s political orientation in a more conservative direction and, years later, likely hampered the advancement of an LGBTQ civil rights agenda.Shortcomings aside, however, “Out in the Union” is an important book to read, one that has opened up an essential field of study. With all the pain and abuse in the workplace that this book documents, the book is essentially optimistic, pointing towards the growing solidarity of all workers against exploitation, bigotry and oppression.Grevatt came out in a hostile work environment at a Chrysler plant in Ohio in 1989. Ten years later, she helped win nondiscrimination language covering sexual orientation in the Big Three-UAW contracts, along with health benefits for domestic partners.

Several Wins for Agriculture in Omnibus Spending BillThe omnibus spending bill passed by the House and Senate included many victories for agriculture. Farm groups applauded the inclusion of the Fair Agricultural Reporting Method, or FARM Act. It exempts air emissions from animal waste from being subject to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, or CERCLA, reporting requirements. Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly, a Democrat on the Senate Ag Committee, was one of the co-authors of the FARM Act.“What the EPA was looking for was so technical, and so difficult. It would have been such a challenge for our farmers. I was bound and determined to get that turned around. I worked with Senator (Deb) Fischer, my Republican colleague from Nebraska, and the two of us were able to get that reporting requirement removed. Our farmers don’t have to worry about that anymore.”The congressional spending measure also included a provision to fix the so-called “grain glitch” created in the tax reform bill in December regarding the Section 199 tax provision. Farmers will once again have incentive to sell to cooperatives rather than privately owned companies.“We were able to, in effect, restore the old deduction system through the new tax rules. So, we were able to get that fixed. I worked nonstop on that to make sure that family farms, family businesses that have been such a cornerstone for our state for so many decades and so many generations, that they would not be affected by this.”The bill also included a one-year delay of the Electronic Logging Devices mandate for livestock haulers.Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts says he was “pleased” with the bipartisan deal, which will fund the federal government through the end of the fiscal year.
