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. Instead, I’d much rather invest in this business: Enter Your Email Address The Clover Health Investments (NASDAQ:CLOV) share price has seen some explosive growth recently. In fact, just over the first week of June, the US stock jumped by nearly 200%, from $7.64 to $22.15. It has since come down to around $15 today. But that is still around 50% higher than a year ago. What’s causing this sudden upward surge? And should I be considering Clover Health as a new addition to my portfolio?The surging Clover Health (CLOV) share priceBefore breaking down what’s going on with the CLOV share price, let’s take a look at the actual business. Clover Health is a Medicare Advantage health insurance company. The revenue model is pretty simple. Customers pay a monthly premium and should they ever need to visit the hospital, the bill is largely taken care of.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…An insurance company wouldn’t be my first guess for a business capable of almost tripling in the space of a week, so what happened? It seems the Reddit army is at it again. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of the meme stock movement that sent the share prices of companies like GameStop and AMC Entertainment through the roof, despite poor underlying fundamentals. These retail investors now have their sights locked on Clover Health, making the recent surge in the CLOV share price a result of yet another short squeeze.Investigating what happenedBack in February this year, famous short-selling firm Hindenburg Research published a report against Clover Health with some pretty serious accusations. It proclaimed that Clover Health failed to disclose a Justice Department investigation when going public via a SPAC. It also accused Chamath Palihapitiya, a backer of the SPAC, of misleading investors when promoting the business.Following this report, the Securities and Exchange Commission started an investigation. And since then, the volume of shares being sold short has climbed to around 36% today. With such a high short interest, retail investors adamantly started buying shares pushing the CLOV share price up to trigger a short squeeze.But is this a case of a bad business being inflated by an internet frenzy? Maybe not. The management team has vehemently denied the accusations. CEO Vivek Garipalli described the report as “rife with ad hominem attacks, sweeping inaccuracies and gross mis-characterisations”. And so, giving the company the benefit of the doubt, is the underlying business worthy of its newly elevated valuation?The underlying businessUnlike other meme stocks, Clover Health does actually look healthy. It has a nearly insignificant amount of debt ($46m) on the balance sheet with plenty of cash ($405m) to spare. What’s more, the company has been successfully growing its customer base over the years, rising from 16,000 members in 2016 to over 66,000 as of the end of March this year. Combining this with a rapidly expanding revenue line makes the company appear to be somewhat undervalued, assuming growth can be maintained.Having said that, I’m personally not interested in adding this business to my portfolio. Like many Medicare insurance providers, the bulk of the revenue actually comes from the US government, as most customers pay their premiums directly to Medicare.  Suppose the allegations by Hindenburg Research prove to have merit? In that case, it could embroil the business in expensive legal proceedings that would likely compromise the CLOV share price.

American priest elected bishop for New Westminster diocese

first_img December 2, 2013 at 5:57 pm New Westminster and the ACC will be richer for the presence and ministry of Melissa Skelton. She is awesome and brings out the very best in people. By Marites N. SisonPosted Dec 2, 2013 Youth Minister Lorton, VA An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Bath, NC Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Anglican Communion, The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Tags Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI People Bishop-elect Melissa M. Skelton will be consecrated bishop of the Diocese of New Westminster on March 1, 2014. Photo: Dot Cellini[Anglican Journal] An American priest who describes herself as a “Canadian enthusiast” has been elected the first woman bishop in the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster and the first woman diocesan bishop in the ecclesiastical Province of British Columbia and the Yukon.The Rev. Canon Melissa M. Skelton, canon for congregational development and leadership and rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Seattle, in the Diocese of Olympia, was elected by a special synod on Nov. 30, in Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver. She succeeds Bishop Michael Ingham, who retired last August.“Stunned,” “humbled” and “exhilarated” were her immediate reactions when she was elected on the third ballot after receiving a substantial majority of votes from the houses of clergy and lay, Bishop-elect Skelton told the Anglican Journal in a telephone interview.Bishop-elect Skelton is no stranger to the Vancouver-based diocese, having conducted comprehensive trainings in congregational development and leadership for its clergy and laity since 2011.It was a relationship that thrived and continued over the years — in 2012, she designed and facilitated New Westminster’s synod, a pivotal time for the diocese that had undergone a traumatic division over same-sex blessings that led all the way to the courts.“I experienced both an interest in and a willingness to engage in a listening process that, from my perspective, was a first step towards the restoration of a sense of unity in New Westminster,” she said in her nomination statement. “This willingness spoke to me, in that these very same listening processes would be a cornerstone of my approach in the creation of unity that is part of the role of bishop.”She has been nominated in two other episcopal elections before, one of which she withdrew from, saying she was not convinced it was the right one for her. Early this year, she came in second in the Diocese of New Jersey elections. That election “really helped me understand that they were not ready for me, put it that way. It was also good to discover that it wasn’t the right diocese for me,” she said.With the Diocese of New Westminster, however, there was a sense of peace. What feels right about it? “So many things,” she says, in her deep, measured voice. “My experience in the diocesan school for leadership and the kind of chemistry with the people and participants – that was very telling to me,” she said. Another big factor was her connection to Bishop Ingham. She first met him in 1994, when he was a newly minted bishop and she was running the training for new bishops at The General Theological Seminary (GTS), an Episcopal Church seminary based in New York City.And then there’s the matter of geography. Skelton has found an affinity with the west that has been “profound, very freeing and very compelling.” Nine years ago she moved from a small coastal parish in Maine to the diocese of Olympia, also known as the Episcopal Church in Western Washington. Initially she was “perplexed” by the transition. The west had “a different character, a different style of spirituality,” and the sun and the water appeared on a different side.But when she was nominated in the two U.S. episcopal elections, both of them in the northeast, Skelton said she realized that as much as she loved living in the east, it no longer felt like home.New Westminster has a “common spirit” with the dioceses of Olympia, Oregon and Spokane, and it “really feels like a wonderful match for who I am now,” she said. When she became a nominee to its election and responded to questions sent by the search and nominations committee, Skelton said, “The more I answered, the more I felt connected.”Coming into a highly visible diocese in Canada will not be a daunting prospect for Skelton, who was vice-president for administration at the General Theological Seminary when it was going through “a difficult time around slightly different issues.” In late 1993, the GTS had to reconsider its housing policy after a complaint was filed with the NY City Commission on Human Rights alleging discrimination on the basis of marital status and sexual orientation.“I learned what it was like to simply do the work you’re given to do in many ways. For me, it feels like being faithful in highly visible situations, keeping focused on the call of God,” she said.Congregational development and relationship building will be one of her key priorities as new bishop, said Skelton. She is eager to start building relationships “with this new group of people who have been so very enthusiastic and kind to elect me — a woman, a Canadian enthusiast and American-born person who deeply cares about their parishes,” she said.She is also most excited about the cultural diversity of Vancouver. “It’s an amazing place,” she said, adding she has a deep desire to find out how the church engages the diversity of these cultures.Born in Columbus, Georgia, to a military family of four children, Skelton had lived mostly in southeastern America and in Germany.Skelton became an Episcopalian in her twenties “from no real church background,” she said in her nomination statement.After she received a Master of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary, she became a priest in 1993, while she worked as a brand manager at Procter & Gamble.She later moved to GTS where, aside from overseeing the seminary’s operations, she taught courses in Christian Education and oversaw the College for Bishops.Skelton, who also has a master of English and a master of business administration, later left GTS to become vice-president of consumer and brand development, communications and advertising of Tom’s of Maine, which sells “natural toothpaste, deodorant, soap and more.”After leaving Tom’s, she became rector of Trinity Church in Castine, Maine, and started her own consulting business, which focused on “in-depth consumer work” and organizational and congregational development. In 2005, she became rector of St. Paul’s, in the Diocese of Olympia.According to the Diocese of Olympia website, she has an adult son, Evan, who lives with his wife, Emily, and their two sons, Austin and Evan, in Washington, D.C.

And for female ordained ministers, we have had to chart our courses that are very different form the traditional course of being confined to a church building and a confined parish or geographical area. I am glad that the Canadian Church has opened the door to female bishops and Rev. Melissa Skelton being the pioneer. My hope and prayer is that it becomes common as they open up for more. Jesus had no geographical confines in His time. He went wherever he could reach. Likewise, Jesus had no physical building to preach and teach in. He went where He was needed most. In homes, in the country, in the city, at the seaside, in markets, at gatherings, you name it. Christ’s followers have institutionalised the Church of Christ, politicised it and monopolised it. No wonder, many have left, are leaving and are wary of joining the institutional churches!!!

The remarkable similarities between Sumo wrestling and England’s defence

first_imgThursday Nov 26, 2020 The remarkable similarities between Sumo wrestling and England’s defence Following England’s win over Ireland, a fair bit of analysis has gone into how strong they’re looking right now and how they are setting up to be a commanding force for years to come. Today’s guest post looks at various passages of defence from that win, and the similarities in style to that of Sumo wrestling.ADVERTISEMENTCoach Craig Wilson of thecontactcoach.com says that he is always searching to learn new things, particularly from other sports. Here he outlines how his experiences have led to him analysing techniques in goal-line defence.The art of coaching is deciding what the needs of your team are and packaging it into messages the group can understand. I often find that using imagery from another sport can help bring technical aspects of rugby to life.On tour in Japan with Yale University, the team I coach, we had the privilege of visiting a sumo wrestling training session. What struck me was how well it related to rugby, particularly the explosive movements from a low position the wrestlers demonstrated as they collided with their opponent, and then the leg drive to maintain the momentum.When watching England continually defend their try line against Ireland’s attacking power plays in the Autumn Nations Cup match, it reminded me of what I witnessed first-hand in Japan.When defending close to your try line, it’s imperative to win the collision, and with that, the gain line, to drive the opposition backwards.The ‘sumo technique’ is not unique to England, but as you can see from the video, particularly from Billy Vunipola and Kyle Sinckler, they employ similar explosive movements to those of sumo wrestlers to repel the Irish attack.ADVERTISEMENTInterspersed with the ‘sumo technique’ is the more conventional rugby tackling style, demonstrated by Joe Launchbury, Mako Vunipola, Sam Underhill, and Ben Earl. All these defensive techniques combined make England a very difficult team to score against.So the next time you watch a team defend their try line at close quarters, this video will hopefully give you a slightly different way of looking at it. If nothing else, it’s simply interesting to acknowledge the similarities.

(Eli Hartman|Odessa American) Pinterest In a span of seven months, three mothers received the same devastating news.Their teenage boys — who were 17 and 18 years old — were each shot to death.The three fatal shootings happened between May 2020 and November 2020.Though each mother has dealt with grief in their own way, they have come together to support each other through their day-to-day roller coaster of emotions.Jessica Castaneda poses for a photo with a portrait of her son Osvaldo “Chevy” Renteria Saturday, May 8, 2021 at the Noël Heritage Plaza. (Eli Hartman|Odessa American)“I don’t want to let my son’s death be in vain, so I would love to try to do something and that’s why I’ve helped these other mothers who are in the exact place that I was,” said Jessica Castaneda, who lost her son Osvaldo “Chevy” Renteria on May 17, 2020.Castenada was the first of three mothers who received the news that her 17-year-old son was killed. The second mother was 40-year-old Odessan Merissa Madero, whose 18-year-old son Emmanuel “Nano” Armando Urias, was killed Sept. 26, 2020.The most recent was 40-year-old Odessa Michelle Del Bosque whose 18-year-old son Alec Michael Del Bosque was killed Nov. 1, 2020.Michelle Del Bosque poses for a picture with a portrait of her son Alec Michael Del Bosque Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Noël Heritage Plaza. (Eli Hartman|Odessa American)The three women attend a larger once-a-month support group, but they keep in constant contact through a text messaging group. Michelle Del Bosque said the women will send words of encouragement while also meeting in person once a month.“I appreciate the group a lot, because it’s people who understand what you are going through,” Del Bosque said. “They are the only ones that can say that they really know how I feel.”Madero said at times the text messaging group can get overwhelming, however, she is appreciative of the support the other mothers in her situation have shown.“I heard them and the next thing you know they break down and I start remembering and I break down,” Madero said. “I get it, because we need to let that out, but I guess I really haven’t accepted the fact that my baby is gone. It’s hard.”Merissa Madero poses for a portrait with a picture of her son Emmanuel “Nano” Armando Urias Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Noël Heritage Plaza. (Eli Hartman|Odessa American)Castenada and Madero each said their son’s deaths resulted in them being at the wrong place at the wrong time.Michelle Del Bosque said she believed that her son’s death wasn’t a random act of violence. She said that her property had been broken into multiple times and shot multiple times and each time that happened she filed a report with law enforcement. Del Bosque said her son wanted her to quit calling the sheriff’s office when her property was broken into, but she didn’t heed those warnings.“My son kept telling me, ‘you are going to get killed if you keep going to the cops,’” Del Bosque said. “It scared us really bad. My son was set up several times. It was really bad. From May of 2020 to October 2020, our lives were a living hell. We were scared to death. We feared for our lives.”According to a previous Odessa American article, Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis detailed that there was a party in the 14000 block of West Stagecoach Drive. Griffis said two individuals, John Anthony Sanchez and Del Bosque, got into a confrontation that led to Del Bosque being shot and killed.Michelle Del Bosque told the Odessa American that she believes the party was a setup for her son to be shot and killed. Del Bosque admitted there’s only one thing that she would have changed in the past.“I honestly think we would have packed our bags and moved,”Del Bosque said as she fought back tears. “That would have been the best thing for us. To pack our bags and move immediately. That’s the biggest mistake we made.”Michelle Del Bosque speaks during an interview Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Noël Heritage Plaza. (Eli Hartman|Odessa American)Castenada, Madero and Del Bosque were each born and raised in Odessa and they all explained that life now is different than life when they were teenagers.All three mothers pointed to various reasons for teen deaths in Odessa whether it’s gun violence, drugs, gangs or simply someone seen as being disrespectful on social media.“Back in the day, we could walk to a friend’s house that was a couple of blocks away,” Madero said. “Now, you can’t do that because you don’t know what’s going to be around the corner.”Del Bosque added: “We are having big-city problems. It’s bad. It’s really bad.”Castenada said she wants to urge parents to talk to their child and ask questions like who their child is hanging out with, where they are spending their time and what they are doing in their free time.“Your kid could be the killer or your kid could be the victim,” Castenada said. “Make sure these kids don’t have ahold of a gun and feel like they can just take another kid’s life.”“For the love of God, raise your kid right. Do the best you can as a parent and make sure your kid doesn’t get involved in that or becomes the person that takes someone else’s life.” Michelle Del Bosque poses for a picture with a portrait of her son Alec Michael Del Bosque Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Noël Heritage Plaza.

But safeguards are needed to protect farmers, and anomalies must also be corrected,” he had said.Mann’s organization BKU was part of the protests at the beginning.As per another report, the act of Mann meeting the Minister was not appreciated by other protesting farmers, who accused the government of trying to ‘divide and defame’ their movement, while ‘sweet-talking’ them into conceding amendments in the laws.Soon after the Chief Justice of India announced the names on Tuesday afternoon, many persons pointed out in social media that the composition of the committee reflects only a single view which is in support of the laws.The composition of the Committee with members who support the implementation of laws have baffled many. Senior Advocate and former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram said “the composition of the four member committee is puzzling and sends contradictory signals”.Dr Pramod Kumar Joshi, Agricultural Economist, Director for South Asia, International Food Policy Research InstituteDr Pramod Kumar Joshi, recently co-authored an article in the Financial Express which said “any dilution in the farm laws will constrain Indian agriculture to harness emerging global opportunities”.While strongly supporting the merits of the laws, the article said that “farmers are a victim of misinformation in the absence of effective communication from the government”.”It seems that some activists and political elements (who presumably would like to keep the disquiet alive for a long time) have hijacked the agitation by colouring the farm laws with a distorted narrative”, the article stated.Ashok Gulati, Agricultural Economist and Former Chairman of the Commission for Agricultural Costs and PricesAshok Gulati has argued in an article written in the Indian Express that the farm laws are in the right direction. He commented that the opposition has been misguided. He said that the laws will “make Indian agriculture globally competitive, and benefit farmers and consumers alike”.Also, in an interview given to Karan Thappar for ‘The Wire’, Gulati repeatedly made it clear that he supports the government’s agricultural reforms which he believes are very necessary. He suggested the suspension of the farm laws for 6 months to compensate the farmers but strongly argued against total repeal of the laws.Anil GhanwatAnil Ghanwat, who heads the Maharashtra based Shetkari Sanghatana, is someone who has openly said that the laws must not be withdrawn. He has expressed the view that the laws have opened up opportunities for the farmers and must be implemented but with some amendments.Next Storylast_img read more
