Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Investors in high-growth, ‘Cathie Wood-style’ stocks have had a tough few months. Since bond yields started rising in mid-February, many of these stocks have fallen 30%+.Recently, however, there have been signs of a comeback. Since their May lows, stocks such as Twilio, DraftKings, and Roku have all bounced around 20%.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…This could be a ‘dead-cat-bounce’, of course. In this inflationary environment, there could be further falls to come for high-growth stocks. Nevertheless, I think it’s worth having a nibble at some of these kinds of stocks right now (with a long-term view). With that in mind, here’s a look at two Cathie Wood-owned, high-growth stocks I’d buy for my own portfolio today.A top Cathie Wood growth stockOne Cathie Wood growth stock I continue to like from a long-term investment point of view is Shopify (NYSE: SHOP). It’s a Canadian technology company that offers an e-commerce platform. Through this platform, retailers can launch an online store effortlessly.Shopify has grown at an incredible pace in recent years and the company’s first-quarter 2021 results, posted on 28 April, showed more impressive growth. For the period, total revenue came in at $988.6m, up 110% year-on-year, while gross merchandise volume was $37.3bn, an increase of $19.9bn, or 114%. Operating income for the quarter was $118.9m, or 12% of revenue, versus a loss of $73.2m in Q1 2020.Looking ahead, I expect Shopify to keep growing at an impressive pace, driven by the growth of the e-commerce industry. This year, Wall Street analysts have pencilled in top-line growth of around 50%.It’s worth noting that Shopify is an expensive stock. Currently, its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio is over 300. This adds risk to the investment case.However, we have seen in recent years that not buying a stock because it has a high P/E ratio can backfire. Amazon has consistently had a high P/E over the last five years and in this time, its share price has risen about 350%. So, I’m willing to have a small nibble at Shopify stock at current levels.Analysts like this stockA second Cathie Wood-owned growth stock I’d buy right now is Pinterest (NASDAQ: PINS). It’s a social media company that offers a ‘visual discovery’ engine.This is another company that is generating very impressive growth. Its first-quarter 2021 results, for example, showed revenue growth of 78% year-on-year. Meanwhile, global monthly active users (MAUs) rose 30% to 478m. Looking ahead, Pinterest said it expects revenue growth of around 105% for the second quarter of 2021.Pinterest is now ramping up the monetisation of its platform. In the first quarter, it achieved average revenue per user (ARPU) of $1.04 globally. There appears to be plenty of room for growth here, however. Rival Facebook currently has an ARPU of around $10.Pinterest stock is also quite expensive. Currently, PINS sports a forward-looking P/E ratio of about 70. If growth stalls, the stock could take a hit.I think the long-term growth story here is attractive, however. It’s worth noting that the average analyst price target is $85 – about 33% above the current share price.last_img read more

I have many Muslim ESL students, and I am learning a lot from them about Islam, and about the different cultures that they come from. Because of my Christian faith, I am connected to God and to other Christians. But, I am also connected to those of other faith traditions because of our common connection to God, our creator. Just as my Christian faith was enhanced by learning about Dine’ (Navajo) religion when I lived on the Navajo Nation, it is also being enhanced by my learning about Islam.

Photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – New York] The members of the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council got a crash course on the work of the church-wide staff Oct. 16 during a visit to the Episcopal Church Center in New York.During the morning, the council split into five groups and toured the building, meeting with members of the mission staff who work both in the New York location and across the church. They also heard from the mission support staff, including the Office of Communication, treasurer’s office, and human resources.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, right, and the Rev. Gay Jennings, president of the House of Deputies listen Oct. 16 as staff members explain their work to members of the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council who came to the church center in New York for the day. Photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergThe visit to the church center was significant, in part, because General Convention said in July (via Resolution D016) that “it was the will of this Convention to move the church center headquarters away from the church center building.” That statement came after the House of Bishops rejected a call by the House of Deputies to sell the building at 815 Second Ave.A comprehensive study of real estate owned by the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Episcopal Church is being conducted by the real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield and funded by Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Jon Bruno. The study involves both the Episcopal Church Center at 815 Second Ave. in New York and a city block in Austin, Texas, that was purchased with the intent of constructing a new building for the Archives of the Episcopal Church. The study is also meant to explore the cost of relocating the church center and its impact on the staff.Council and many staff members also participated in an anti-racism/diversity training session during the afternoon. Sarah Sayeed, program and communications associate for the Interfaith Center of New York, and Christina Warner, campaign director of Shoulder to Shoulder, spoke to the session about understanding Islam and Muslims in America. They were followed by a session on immigration issues led by Rachel Steinhardt, deputy director of Welcoming America.Sarah Sayeed, program and communications associate for the Interfaith Center of New York, speaks to members of the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council and the church-wide staff during a diversity training session Oct. 16 at the church center in New York. Photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergThe Oct. 16 gathering at the church center came on the second day of the Oct. 15-18 meeting which began at the Heldrich hotel and conference center in New Brunswick in the Diocese of New Jersey and council will return there for the final two days of the meeting.During the center’s regularly scheduled noon-hour Eucharist the Rev. Gay Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, called on the council, staff and visitors to boldly “do something else” with “how we live our lives and structure our communities and ministries.”“Something else that might just bring us closer to the heart of God and those we are called to serve – the last, the least, the lost, and the left behind,” she added.Jennings noted that the church was celebrating the feast day of Hugh Latimer and Nicholas Ridley, bishops who were martyred in 1555 for their beliefs about the need for reform in the church. “While you and I won’t be called upon to give up our physical lives for the cause of structural reform, we have given our lives to Jesus Christ and committed to serve God’s church,” she said. “This is always the first step.”The House of Deputies president said she was not sure what “something else” will look like in the 2013-2015 triennium. “But I am ready and willing to be part of creating something else, something new,” she said. “I believe you are as well. Let’s go there. Let’s be bold and visionary disciples of Jesus. We are called to do no less.”Council will spend most of Oct. 17 in committee meetings after a final orientation session in plenary. The members serve on one of five joint standing committees, including Advocacy and Networking (A&N), Finances for Mission (FFM), Governance and Administration for Mission (GAM), Local Ministry and Mission (LMM) and World Mission (WM).On Oct. 18 council will meet in plenary session to hear committee reports and to consider resolutions.ENS coverage of the first day of the meeting is here.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). The council is composed of 38 members, 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms, plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies. About half of the members are new to the council with this meeting, having just been elected by General Convention and the provinces. – The Rev.

There would be no need for any of this if Muslims were not such a bellicose and violent people. I recognize that some may be peaceful but the fact remains that all too many of them desire the destruction of the U.S, our Judeo-Christian roots and all that America stands for. Once here, they rally and protest against our Judeo-Christian beleifs and symbols and seek to remove traditionall Christian thought and symbols from our life. Many migrate to America for its freedoms and then seek to overturn the justice system and freedoms we enjoy. When caught by authorities for terrorist acts, they pervert our justice system to save their skin. If Muslims/Islamists were so just they would not have to spend millions on a public relations campaign. Their actions would speak for themselves as they do now.F. W.

Scots more generous than UK as a whole says first annual CAF Scotland Giving report

first_img People in Scotland are more generous than the UK as whole, with a greater percentage donating money and goods, volunteering, and sponsoring others than the UK population overall, according to a new Charities Aid Foundation report.CAF’s first annual CAF Scotland Giving report is based on a monthly tracking survey by YouGov and is being launched this evening (5 October) at a reception at Edinburgh’s Dynamic Earth. It shows that more Scots donated money to charity in the past year than people across the UK (65% vs. 61%), to have volunteered their time (19% vs. 17%), donated goods to charity (58% vs. 56%), and sponsored a friend or colleague (40% vs. 37%). Medical research was the most popular cause, followed by animal welfare, children and young people and disaster relief, and more than half had also signed a petition.Overall, the survey found people living in Scotland donated £813 million to charity in 2016. This represents 8.4% of the £9.7 billion donated to charity across the UK with Scotland accounting for 8.2% of the population, according to CAF.Susan Pinkney, Head of Research at the Charities Aid Foundation, said:“However you look at it, Scotland performs incredibly well and this shows the amazing culture of giving we have here in Scotland, of which we should all be very proud. What is particularly encouraging is the level of 16-24 year olds who are engaged in charitable activity in Scotland – this bodes well for the future.”We believe this report is the first of its kind, and we hope it will help build the amazing vibrant culture of charities in Scotland and help them expand the excellent work which supports so many people across the country.”The report also shows that young people in Scotland are more engaged with charity than the UK as a whole: 94% of 16-24 year olds reported they had done some form of charitable activity in the preceding year, significantly higher than the UK average which stands at 89%. Advertisement Melanie May | 5 October 2017 | News IoF research reveals Scots’ motivations for givingResearch on Scotland for the Institute of Fundraising, again by YouGov and conducted earlier this year, also showed Scottish people to be more generous than the rest of the UK. It revealed that 68% of people in Scotland had made a donation or bought something from a charity within the three months 
prior to being surveyed, compared to 61% of the UK population.The IoF’s research looked at Scottish donors’ motivations for giving and their experience of donating, revealing that for three in five people in Scotland (64%) the main reason for donating in the three months prior to the survey was because it was a cause they believed in. 41% also thought supporting charities was a good thing to do and 23% said they did so because the charity had helped someone they know.Two thirds (66%) of those in Scotland who had given to charity in the last three months said they were prompted to make their donation in some way. This included 10% who were asked by someone they know, and 6% who gave for a collection at a memorial/funeral, while 2% received a mailing through the post, 1% responded to a national TV charity event, and 1% received an e-mail or text asking for a donation. 27% said they had made a spontaneous decision without being prompted, while 57% of respondents said they would have made the same donation regardless. However, 31% said that they would not have donated at all without being prompted, and a further 11% said that they would have donated a smaller amount.  130 total views,  1 views today  131 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 Scots more generous than UK as a whole says first annual CAF Scotland Giving report Tagged with: Charities Aid Foundation Research / statistics Scotland About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Survivor of Florida yoga studio shooting thanks man who confronted killer: ‘He saved my life’

first_imgWTXL-TV(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) — A man who took on a rampaging gunman who killed two people and wounded four others at a Florida yoga studio says he grabbed the first makeshift weapon he could find and sprang into action when the attacker’s gun appeared to jam.Joshua Quick is being praised by police and survivors of Friday’s shooting in Tallahassee, who say his intervention gave them enough time to escape.Quick said he grabbed a vacuum cleaner that was in the studio and confronted alleged gunman Scott Paul Beierle.“The gun stopped firing, I don’t know if it jammed or what. So I used that opportunity to hit him over the head with it [the vacuum],” Quick told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Sunday.Beierle pistol-whipped Quick, who was left with bruises and scratches over this left eye and nose from the confrontation. Quick said he fell to the floor but got back up and went after the alleged killer again.“I jumped up as quickly as I could, ran back over and the next thing I know I’m grabbing a broom, you know, anything I can and I hit him again,” Quick said.By the time police arrived, Beierle was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said.Daniela Garcia Albalat, who was shot in the thigh during the incident, told “GMA” that Quick saved her life and the lives of others.“Thanks to him I was able to try to rush out of the door. I was slipping, I was dripping blood everywhere because I got shot through my thigh,” Albalat said. “I want to thank that guy from the bottom of my heart because he saved my life.”The shooting broke out about 6 p.m. Friday at the Hot Yoga Tallahassee studio. Tallahassee police said Beierle entered the studio posing as a customer then removed a gun from a duffle bag and started shooting without warning.Killed were Dr. Nancy Van Vessem, 41, a member of the faculty at Florida State University College of Medicine, and Maura Binkley, a 21-year-old Florida State student, police said.“Several people fought back and tried not only to save themselves, but other people, which is a testament to the courage of the people who don’t just turn and run but the strength of our community and the spirit of those people trying to help and save and protect others,” Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said at a press conference Friday night.Police are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting. Investigators said Beierle apparently had no prior connection to the yoga class and that he lived in Deltona, Florida, about 250 miles from Tallahassee.Beierle had been employed as a substitute teacher with the Volusia County, Florida, School District until May 25, when he was accused of misconduct at a middle school, officials said.“He was immediately let go,” Kelly Schultz, a school district spokeswoman, told ABC affiliate station WFTV in Orlando.Schultz said Beierle had been issued a teaching certificate in July 2015 by the Florida Department of Education and that he passed all federal and criminal background checks. He was hired by the Volusia County School District in January 2017.Beierle had served in the U.S. Army from 2008 to 2010, according to military records. Prior to enlisting in the Army, Beierle taught English and social studies at a high school in Fort Meade, Maryland, said Bob Mosier, spokesman for the Anne Arundel Public School District in Maryland.Court records show Beierle had several run-ins with police.He was charged in 2016 with battery after he allegedly slapped and grabbed a woman’s buttocks at an apartment complex swimming pool, according to records. The charges were eventually dismissed after Beierle complied with conditions of a deferred prosecution agreement.Beierle was also charged with battery in 2012 when he was accused of grabbing another woman’s rear in a Florida State University campus dining hall, records show. Beierle denied grabbing the woman, according to an FSU police report.Florida State University president John Thrasher expressed condolences to the victims’ families in a statement.“There are no words to express the shock and grief we feel after learning of the deaths of Maura Binkley and Dr. Nancy Van Vessem,” Thrasher said. “To lose one of our students and one of our faculty members in this tragic and violent way is just devastating to the FSU family. We feel this loss profoundly and we send our deepest sympathies to Maura’s and Nancy’s loved ones while we pray for the recovery of those who were injured.”Van Vessem was also the chief medical director at Capital Health Plan.“Our Capital Health Plan family is deeply shocked and saddened about the tragic loss of our beloved friend and colleague, Dr. Nancy Van Vessem, among the other victims of this terrible incident,” CHP said in a statement. “Nancy has been a guiding light, visionary force in our daily work to serve the wellness and health care needs of thousands of families in this community.“Her dedication, caring, leadership, humanity, and experience made her one of the most respected, accomplished medical professionals in the state and country,” the statement continued. “Our hearts are filled with sorrow and prayers for her family. We all have been so blessed to have Nancy in our lives.”Binkley’s father, Jeff Binkley, told ABC News that his daughter planned to be a teacher.“Maura truly lived a life really devoted to peace, love [and] caring for others,” Jeff Binkley said.The other victims in the shooting suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were treated at hospitals, officials said.Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who is the Democratic candidate for Florida governor, was campaigning in Miami with former President Barack Obama earlier in the day Friday and returned to his home city to visit the two hospitalized victims that night.“Both were in surprisingly encouraging spirits,” Gillum said at a campaign rally in Orlando on Saturday. “There was one victim in particular that pulled me in close and said, ‘I’m expecting you to do something about this gun violence.’”Gillum has touted his opposition to the National Rifle Association throughout his campaign and favors increased gun control measures.“The memories of Pulse nightclub still reside with all of us. We know the story of Marjory Stoneman Douglas,” Gillum said, referring to previous mass shootings in the Sunshine State. “We know the kind of gun violence that pervades too many of our neighborhoods, too many of our communities every day of the week.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Some had been hit hard by the retail apocalypse, while others were decimated solely by the coronavirus.But amid the ashes, many retailers have announced expansions or are going full speed ahead with previous plans, according to a report by Stan Johnson Co.“You’re surprised to see people are expanding. Then, when you peel the onion back, it starts to make a little more sense as to what their long-term strategy is,” said Ryan Butler, managing director and partner at Stan Johnson.Butler noted that for some users of retail space, revenues are up.“They’re taking advantage of lower lease rates, vacancies, cheaper land values, so that they can continue their expansion, and in some cases, probably accelerate what might have been a two-year plan,” Butler added.Here are the retailers planning the 10 biggest expansions, ranked by the number of locations being added.1. 7-ElevenThe convenience store giant will add more than 3,900 locations after acquiring Speedway, bringing 7-Eleven’s store count to 14,000.That is part of a long-range plan to double in size, noted the CEO of Marathon Petroleum, Speedway’s current owner.“We plan to work hand-in-hand with 7-Eleven as they grow out their portfolio,” Michael Hennigan said during this year’s second-quarter earnings call. “They have a stated goal to expand to about 20,000 stores.”2. Dollar GeneralThe low-cost merchandise chain already has 17,000 stores and plans to add 1,000 in its current fiscal year, which ends Jan. 31.
