The threat of an economic downturn that could dwarf the Great Recession is spooking even the biggest and most financially-secure companies. As a consequence, even FTSE 100 companies that haven’t already been badly damaged by the Covid-19 crisis are cutting dividends.A number of British blue chips have pledged to keep on paying dividends despite the tough economic outlook. But it’s likely that more FTSE 100 firms will be added to the list of dividend axers, suspenders, or reducers as 2020 progresses. What can investors expect the following Footsie plays to do in the weeks and months ahead?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…10% dividend yields!BP’s become a lightning rod for speculation over where the next FTSE 100 dividend cut will come from. A chorus is growing among City analysts that the oilie’s about to pull the trigger following the crude price crash. Cash flows and profits have dived while its colossal debt pile is swelling. It already has a monster $50bn-plus of net debt to service.In anticipation of a prolonged downturn in oil demand, BP this month announced plans to cut 10,000 roles from its global workforce. It’s the first in what will be many steps to save cash, one of which I’m sure will include slashing dividends. And sooner rather than later, too. This is why I care not for the company’s near-10% yield. It’s a matter of time before BP follows its FTSE 100 rival Shell in reducing shareholder payouts.Under pressure FTSE 100 stocksBP isn’t the only Footsie share that investors need to be careful with, however. Pearson has kept its previous dividend pledges but I think it’s only a matter of time before the educational materials supplier bites the bullet. Major structural issues, like falling student enrolments and the rise of free education tools, mean that revenues keep falling. Debt here, meanwhile, continues to climb too.Those fundamental problems in its markets would discourage me from buying Pearson and its 3%-plus dividend yield. I’d be much happier to buy shares in The Berkeley Group, a FTSE 100 housebuilder that should benefit in the coming years from London’s huge homes shortage. I wouldn’t buy it on account of its near-term dividend outlook, though.Current payout forecasts create a massive 6% dividend yield, but I reckon Berkeley could disappoint big time. Toughening economic conditions that could smack homebuyer demand in 2020 and 2021 are one thing. Lenders making the process unaffordable for many potential buyers by hiking deposit requirements threatens to hit sales of Berkeley’s products, too.FTSE 100 rivals Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon, and Barratt have all reined in their dividend plans following the Covid-19 crisis. And it’s a matter of time before Berkeley follows suit, in my opinion. Income investors need to be extremely careful in the current macroeconomic climate, clearly. But they don’t need to panic. There remains a multitude of great Footsie dividend shares to snap up today.center_img Royston Wild | Sunday, 21st June, 2020 See all posts by Royston Wild Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

I’m buying UK shares like Warren Buffett to retire in comfort

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! I think many UK shares offer tremendous value right now. Therefore, I’ve been adding to my holdings of these companies over the past few months, sticking to a plan that Warren Buffett has previously advocated. Warren Buffett’s investment strategy Buffett is the world’s greatest investor. He didn’t gain this reputation by accident. Over the past six decades, the investor has followed a meticulous strategy that has helped him acquire the fortune he has today.  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…At its core, this strategy is relatively simple.Warren Buffett focuses on buying high-quality companies at low prices. That’s all there is to it. He’s not interested in trying to predict future stock market movements or pick high-risk growth stocks. Buffett sticks with blue-chips and buys, intending to hold the shares forever. Using this approach, Buffett has been able to turn his initial investment of $100,000 into a fortune of nearly $100bn. The great thing is, anyone can copy this approach. All it takes is a mild understanding of business and a bit of patience. UK shares on offer Finding high-quality stocks is the hardest part of copying Warren Buffett’s strategy. Luckily, I think there are plenty of options here in the UK. Indeed, many UK shares currently trade at highly attractive valuations. These include consumer goods giant Unilever. This stock is one of the world’s largest consumer goods groups, and it has a strong track record of creating value for investors. An investment of £10k in the stock five years ago would be worth just over £18k today. Another option is insurance group Admiral. In my opinion, this company has similar qualities to one of Buffett’s favourite businesses, GEICO. Both companies are large car insurance firms, which stand out among their peers for their low costs and large profit margins. Based on the similarities between the two firms, I reckon Buffett might be interested in acquiring Admiral if he were ever given a chance. I think United Utilities is also a Buffett-like business. Many people don’t realise that the billionaire already owns a large utility business, which operates across the United States. This enterprise also owns a water company here in the UK.Therefore, I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to argue Buffett would be interested in acquiring United if it were offered for sale. The organisation’s stable cash flows and dividend potential may attract the investor. The bottom line Warren Buffett has not publicly declared ownership of any UK shares. However, I think all of the companies above have the qualities he’s looking for in an investment. As such, I have been buying two of these firms for my portfolio in recent weeks. By purchasing and holding these stocks, I reckon they can help me retire in comfort when owned as part of a diversified portfolio.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Rising Covid-19 infection rates, uncertainty over coronavirus vaccine effectiveness, and the threat of a no-deal Brexit. These are all issues UK share buyers need to seriously consider when investing for 2021.But these problems are no reason why share investors should stop buying equities altogether. Here are three FTSE 100 stocks I think should thrive next year, regardless of the broader economic landscape.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…#1: Safe as housesAn uncertain economic outlook makes Reckitt Benckiser Group (LSE: RB) an ideal pick for UK share investors. It can expect demand for its goods to pick up should shopper spending power bounce back. However, sales here should remain robust irrespective of any recovery. Products such as Dettol disinfectant, Harpic bleach and Vanish stain-removers are must-haves, irrespective of whatever social, economic or political chaos is raging outside our windows.In fact, companies with popular brands like Reckitt Benckiser stand to gain in a post-Covid-19 landscape. Studies have shown customers have flocked to familiar and trusted labels in 2020 as the world’s been turned upside down. A rising awareness of personal hygiene has also turbocharged demand for the FTSE 100 firm’s germ-killing and laundry-cleaning goods during this calendar year. These changing consumer habits are here to stay too.#2: A FTSE 100 medical marvelHealthcare stocks are, of course, reliable investments for uncertain times like these. We don’t stop buying drugs en masse when economic conditions become tough, right? This is why I’d buy GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) for my Stocks and Shares ISA today.There are many UK pharmaceutical shares for investors to choose from today. But I rate this one for a variety of reasons. I like its terrific geographic exposure, a quality that should underpin strong profits growth in the 2020s as healthcare investment in emerging markets soar. Glaxo’s market-leading products in a variety of therapy areas is also quite appealing.Finally, I think Glaxo shares look pretty undervalued today. The FTSE 100 giant trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12 times for 2021. It carries a 5.7% dividend yield too. These figures make the drugs manufacturer one of the best-valued stock on the Footsie.#3: Another reassuring UK sharePower operator National Grid (LSE: NG) is also one of the safest UK shares for a tough economic climate. Okay, the business isn’t totally immune to downturns as bad debts can rise. But, largely speaking, the essential nature of its operations means it remains a reliable profits generator. This is what makes the business such a great pick for dividend investors.As the experts at Hargreaves Lansdown comment: “Heavily regulated monopolies have tended to be relatively predictable, and this means they should be able to afford to pay reasonable dividends.”And the broker reckons National Grid’s dividend should be “sustainable”, despite the obvious regulatory uncertainty that firms like these face.At current prices, this FTSE 100 share also sports a gigantic forward dividend yield of 5.7%. This makes it a perfect buy for income investors who’re nervous about a lumpy economic recovery in 2021.

The greatest occupy story ever told

If more pastors and church workers had to provide for themselves as the Apostle Paul did to keep himself fed and clothed as a Tent Maker, there would be more sympathy for the middle class who are able to borrow from the rich to start their business, to enlarge their business, to employ those who are willing to learn the skills needed to be employed. It is not the fault of the rich or the middle class that people make wrong choices in learning the wrong things that make them useless to a potential employer. In Jesus’ time, even the Priests had to learn a trade, develop work skills, in addition to book learning. The disciples knew the craft of fishing, business; Jesus knew carpentry and stone mason work. These OWS people need to go back to school, learn a vocational trade, and get into the work force, and get off this “welfare attitude of everyone owes me a living”, and expect everyone to provide them a living while they are in the parks living in squalor with their laptops, i-pads, and cellphones. The Episcopal Church and others in the Religious community should be promoting “we will help you learn a trade if you want free food”. Nothing wrong with that. The Salvation Army says If you want a bed and supper, you have to go to chapel first. And it works for them and no one has a line of lawyers at their door protesting. Should work for us in the Episcopal Church.

[Episcopal News Service] The Occupy Baltimore encampment was dismantled recently. Police in riot gear evicted 40 or so protesters. There were no arrests. It was a peaceful end to a mostly peaceful demonstration. What the Occupy protests are about has confused some, but TIME magazine seems to think these demonstrations, coupled with the Arab spring events, are important enough to make “The Protester” its person of the year.In church, as in society, there have been mixed reactions to the Occupy protesters. Some have called them hippies, bums, or worse. Some said they should spend their time getting work, becoming productive members of their communities. Others said they had no idea what moved folks to take up residence on the streets, some for months, to make their point. To be clear, economic justice is the reason for these Occupy protests – as was much of the ministry of Jesus.Many efforts to end these protests took place during our celebration of Advent. We have been waiting, anticipating, hoping for one more time to get it: what does it mean for God to occupy human nature? This incarnation of God in human form is the heart of the Christian story and that calls us to live our lives differently.Biblical accounts around Jesus’ birth focus on peace and good will or glad tidings. Sometimes overlooked is that the first witnesses were shepherds, a lowly and somewhat despised class of folks. It was a wandering couple seeking shelter to have a baby that an innkeeper directed to a barn. The creator of the universe begins occupying human form in a dirty, dusty, unsanitary stable. Certainly an inhospitable birth place for any human, let alone the savior of the world. Or so we think.Throughout his life, Jesus identifies with the poor, prisoners, the oppressed, widows and orphans. His visit to a Nazareth synagogue early in Luke’s gospel gives us a pretty good indication where his heart was when he chose to read from Isaiah 61: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”Lately I’ve begun wearing my red “Solidarnosc” lapel pin from the Polish trade union uprising in the ’80s. I see this as a way to be in solidarity with those who have occupied city parks and streets to call attention to economic injustice in the world. I see it as a way to support clergy who have been chaplains to the protesters. And it makes me think at this time of the coming Incarnation of God that Jesus would be with those who do not share justly in God’s bounty.As Christmas comes again, I think we need to ask ourselves where Jesus would be in our community today. Where would Jesus choose to become incarnated? And how should we be in solidarity with Jesus; the Jesus born in a barn, who always championed the poor and oppressed, who overturned tables protesting a Temple system discriminating against those who had little?If we claim our role as Christ’s hands and heart in this world, if we allow Jesus to occupy us body, mind and spirit, then maybe we should not be afraid to champion the cause of Occupy protesters and find Jesus this Christmas with those seeking an end to economic injustice in our world.— The Rev. Canon Dan Webster is canon for evangelism and ministry development in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ December 17, 2011 at 11:25 pm Not long ago Canon Webster asserted in essence that Jesus changed his mind about the worth of a person by the continued insistence of the pleading Canaanite woman. During the commentary it was asserted by Canon Webster that Jesus began referring to the woman as like a “dog” but then became more enlightened as He got to know her. (That reading of the Scripture was perplexing by its first assumption that Jesus began as a bigot, became enlightened, and change then His mind. – BTW: Could it be instead that Jesus tested the faith of the woman by referring to her in terms that she was already used to, and then showed how instead the Son of God embraced her?) Canon Webster’s reading of Scripture again today suggests that one begins with human experience which will then illuminate Scripture, even to the point of defining God, which is a dangerous and often erroneous and misleading. Looking at other comments here I would add that in the rush to listen to the culture some of us have often fallen into the mire of what Jesus Christ came to redeem us from. I am fairly sure that while Jesus would identify with those who want greater justice He would likewise rail against those in the Occupy Movement who: defecate on the streets, steal from each other, abuse drugs, rape and molest, yell at parents with children as they try to inch their way to Wall Street daycares, and on it goes. Listen to the culture, yes, but do not fall into the mire that needs to be redeemed. Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Belleville, IL January 29, 2012 at 3:04 pm Ms. Kopec,Are these the types of people that do NOT make up the Occupy Movement? (Read on) –By NBC NewsStory updated 12:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, January 29th:Oakland officials on Sunday were inspecting damage inside City Hall that was caused by about 50 Occupy protesters who broke in and smashed glass display cases, spray-painted graffiti, and burned the U.S. and California flags.The break-in on Saturday was the culmination of a day of clashes between protesters and police. At least 300 people were arrested on charges ranging from vandalism and failure to disperse.At least three officers and one protester were injured.Mayor Jean Quan said Occupy protesters have caused an estimated $2 million in damages from vandalism since October. She said the cost to the city related to the Occupy Oakland protests is pegged at about $5 million.OK – are they part of the Occupy Movement or not? Just some usual Oakland street activity? Hardly. Sounds like a lot of anarchists more intent on destruction than anything else. How can Occupy claim that they are speaking for and helping the 99% when the actions of the Occupy Movement are costing the 99% millions in fees, resources, taxes, and destroyed property? I think that the Prayer Book quotes the 10 Commandments, especially…”Thou shalt not steal”. I can think of no greater theft in Oakland yesterday than for Occupy to pick the pockets of the community to pay for the destructive self-indulgence by the ones who are “just there to help”.

It is this kind of drivel which is causing the Episcopal Church to lose members and become irrelevant. A few points:1. The shepherds were working! They weren’t hanging around chanting silly slogans. The shepherds had responsibility unlike the protesters who had the means to do absolutely nothing for weeks on end and still be supported (anyone know about the pizzas shipped into Zuccotti park? How about the donated latrines? etc).2. Sorry, Reverend, but Jesus also identifies with the rich, the homeowners and the business people, not just what you consider poor. Jesus came to ALL PEOPLE. In your little world described above, you place Jesus in a nice little box.3. You wear a pin from the Polish uprisings to show commonality? Are you kidding me? Let’s see, the occupiers in the US have raped women, shot each other, threatened reporters and spouted numerous anti-semetic rhetoric. Lech Walesa, the father of Solidarity, is a staunch Roman Catholic and very pro life. Hmmm maybe you should rethink the whole “pin thing”.4. Economic injustice? Who is holding those kids back? I say kids because they are immature like children. They can go to work just like everyone else and work their way up. I’m sure they are able to search for jobs on the mac books and i-phones they were using.5. Your thesis limits Jesus to the occupiers. How about the businesses which were shut down? Wouldn’t Jesus be walking with them? No? Why not? The business owners are employing people and were forced to lay those people off because of your occupiers.Bottom line is this Reverend: Jesus is for all-not just the politically correct. The sooner you and the Episcopal Church realize this the sooner relevancy will return.

Manu Tuilagi apologises for ‘bunny ears’ prank on prime minister

first_imgTuesday Sep 17, 2013 Manu Tuilagi apologises for ‘bunny ears’ prank on prime minister British & Irish Lions and England centre Manu Tuilagi has apologised for making ‘bunny ears’ behind the back of David Cameron on Monday. The triumphant Lions squad were hosted by the Prime Minister to celebrate their 2-1 series victory in Australia.  As the squad asembled for a group photograph, Tuilagi ended up near Mr Cameron, and couldn’t help himself. He later apologised for the gesture on Twitter, saying he was just messing around. Tuilagi, who was described on Sky News this morning as ‘not having a filter’, was famously selected on the bench ahead of Brian O’Driscoll in the final, and deciding Test of the series. Former England scrumhalf Matt Dawson wasn’t impressed with Tuilagi. “My view on Tuilagi/PM. I’m utterly embarrassed. When will some learn, there’s a time and a place,”  he Tweeted.The powerful Samoan is still just 22-years-old, perhaps hard to believe after all he has already achieved for Leicester Tigers, England and now the Lions.Earlier Cameron had praised the work that the Lions have done for the growth of the game in both the UK and Ireland, and said that his son just started playing tag rugby, mainly due to their success.“It’s a huge honour. My son, just because of you guys, has just started tag rugby. He will be so excited about this jersey,” he said after being presented with a number ten Lions jersey.He also took a bit of a swing at Rugby League, saying “I want to see many more people playing Rugby… even Rugby League if they have to.”It was the first time the squad had been together since arriving back in July.

DPR Residence / Method Design Architecture + Urbanism PLLC

In this significant AIA Honor Award winning Addition / Alteration to an existing 1960’s Modern house on a sloped site in Pound Ridge, NY – Method Design was asked to reconsider three major aspects of the current condition – creation of a formal entry, an addition of a master suite, and a sustainable re-cladding of the entire house. Our approach centered on a qualitative response to the inherent characteristics of the site, which included intrusion of large old growth trees into the immediate area of the house, the dramatic coloration of the site’s seasonal foliage, and the daily use of the occupants which prescribed clear articulation of private and public space. Save this picture!© Taylor DeupreeRecommended ProductsSide tablesBoConceptLos Angeles Lounge Table 6230Bathroom FurnitureBradley Corporation USAToilet Partition CubiclesChairsAndreu WorldRonda Outdoor – Outdoor ArmchairOur response to these challenges entailed floating a new master suite on a forest of columns that reinforce an existing line of trees and create a procession towards the newly organized formal entry suspended underneath. The columns themselves operate as a sophisticated structural system where each tips towards a projected point at the center of gravity, giving an innovative balance, stability and equilibrium to the new addition. Save this picture!© Reese CampbellThe cladding and window articulation begins to conceptually organize and index both interior program and existing vs addition. Public areas are detailed with a rain screen of warm cedar finishes reflecting the outdoor environment in which they are situated.The larger windswept surfaces of the project are given the more robust cladding of a cement fiber board rain screen, with the darker tone being applied to the original volume of the house, and the lighter tones reserved for the new additions and alterations. Save this picture!© Reese CampbellThe underside soffit of the new addition which is a gently folded surface is clad with weathered steel. This provides a warm contrast to the lush green sloping site below, which tangibly contains an exterior volume of space that the original house had turned its back to via its siting. The newly found volume of space becomes the public façade and entryway to the reorganized residence. Visitors approach by traversing this measured landscape oblique to the main house and addition, which allows them to experience a greater spatial depth of the project before entering into the axially organized interior of the 1960’s Modern box. Save this picture!elevation 02The reorganized interior of the residence was pierced with deeply framed bays and windows that direct views to the exterior. These framed conditions are reflected into millwork, niche walls, and found spaces to create focused views on valued objects, books, and even functional storage.Save this picture!© Taylor DeupreeProject gallerySee allShow lessUniversity of Applied Arts Extension Proposal / Wolfgang TschapellerArticles2012 TED Prize Winner: The City 2.0’s Wish has been Revealed!Articles Share Photographscenter_img CopyAbout this officeMethod Design Architecture + Urbanism PLLCOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on March 01, 2012Cite: “DPR Residence / Method Design Architecture + Urbanism PLLC” 01 Mar 2012.

Who manages charities’ money?

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  65 total views,  1 views today Which investment managers handle the lion’s share of top charities’ investments? Which auditors have most clients among the top 500 charities? Which law firms dominate the charity sector? New research from Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) details who manages charities’ money.Investment companies Deutsche Asset Management and Merrill Lynch manage the majority of the UK’s top charities’ investments, according to new researchfrom Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).The research, entitled “Who manages the money?”, presents detailed figures onthe use of financial auditors and investment managers, including their comparative market share and fees, by the top 500 fundraising charities and the top 500 grantmaking trusts. Based on figures for 2001 – 02, theresearch also outlines the use of solicitors and their client numbers.Ninety six investment managers handle over £31 billion on behalf of both thelargest trusts and fundraisers. Merrill Lynch Investment Managers was top of the table with 12% of the client market and managing over one third of the total value of charity investments. However, with just 2% of sector clients, Deutsche Asset Management secured 9% of the market value, a highly valuable portfolio with an average charity client fund of £206 million.Comparing the use of auditors between fundraising charities and grantmakingtrusts, Deloitte & Touche emerges as the first choice for the top 500 fundraising charities, with the highest number of audits (23%) and total income audited (17%). For the top 500 grantmaking trusts, however,PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP headed the table with 19% of audits and 31% of the total income audited. Interestingly, the research showed that the average fee per audit was £11,168 for grantmakers compared with £26,223 for fundraisers.Based on combined responses from both grantmaking trusts and fundraising charities, the research shows that a small number of law firms dominate the top charity market. Bates, Wells & Braithwaite are a clear front runner with 15% of the total surveyed, followed by Farrer & Co with10%, Withers LLP and Bircham DysonBell with 8% and Nabarro Nathanson with 7%.“Who manages the money?” forms part of Charity Trends 24th edition, the mostcomprehensive analysis of the resources and expenditure of the UK’s voluntary sector.

Arkansas’ Crawford Introduces Legislation to Reform H-2A Program

first_img Arkansas’ Crawford Introduces Legislation to Reform H-2A Program SHARE Legislation introduced in the House of Representatives would transfer jurisdiction for agricultural guest workers from the Department of Labor to the Department of Agriculture. The bill comes as the labor Department Monday opened a comment period on proposed rulemaking changes to the program. The changes “strengthen protections” for workers. Meanwhile, the Agricultural Guest Worker Reform Initiative, or AGRI Act, introduced by Arkansas Republican Rick Crawford, would transfer the program to USDA which is “better equipped” to address the need for temporary workers and will make the program more accessible to farmers.The legislation would also allow employers to offer market-based contracts and wages, and increase the security of the program by requiring workers to return to their country of origin for one month following every 10 months of labor in the United States. By returning, workers payroll taxes will be refundable at the U.S. consulate in their home country. The legislation also requires the Department of Homeland Security to provide guest workers with a traceable, biometric ID card.

Fort Worth Central Library issuing passports

first_imgprintThe Fort Worth Central Library is issuing passports to applicants on a first-come, first-serve basis between 2 and 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and 12 and 5 p.m. Saturdays.Prompted by the U.S. State Department, the library began issuing passports by appointment only on June 2, said L.G. Swift, the library’s regional manager.Swift said the passport service has been successful but is lacking in numbers of applicants, with the busiest day so far comprising up to 17 applicants and a normal day up to seven.He said he hopes enough people come to necessitate printing tickets and calling out numbers, much like the system at a DMV office to designate the order in which applicants are served.This ticket generator will be utilized in the event enough people are in the waiting room.This number generator will be utilized in the event enough people are in the waiting room. Fort Worth recognized for growing music scene 10th-annual Frogstock features student-led music Twitter Facebook Kayley Ryan Library assistant Ulysses Avalos works in one of two booths in the office operated by bilingual staff members. He said the average person takes less than 15 minutes to complete the application process.Avalos points out that if applicants do have to wait, they have plenty of material to keep them busy in the waiting area, where music and movie selections abound.Only a few applicants entered the passport office within a two-hour period on Thursday afternoon.Peggy Fairchild said she found out about the library’s passport services through an email sent out to library patrons and came Thursday to renew her passport. She said the process is a lot easier than most and is more conveniently located.Peggy Fairchild holds up her application for passport renewal.“We live right around the corner,” Fairchild said.Applicant Alina Jaffery and her two children were also using the library’s passport services for the first time. She said the operating hours were ideal for her family.The passport application process is outlined in this infographic.Swift said the success of the library’s passport services will be evaluated in December.The Fort Worth Central Library is located at 500 W. Third St, and the passport office is downstairs past the reference desk.
