first_img There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! See all posts by Tim Charles Enter Your Email Address Think of emerging markets and some people may immediately think of China. and although many experts believe the Chinese economy will grow further still, I think we should also look further afield and consider other emerging market areas. One country that has caught my eye is Vietnam.The Vietnamese economy has been growing rapidly over the last few years, and a number of multinational organisations have recently established manufacturing operations there. According to a recent CNBC news article, Vietnam is likely to be Asia’s top performing economy of 2020 – beating even China!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…The country also has trading relations with both China and the West, and talk recently has been of trying to increase these ties, especially with the West. The Vietnamese government are said to be targeting annual GDP growth of at least 6.5% per year for the next few years.Government elections have recently been held, and the existing Communist Party leader has been re-elected – a man who appears to have a more global outlook in terms of trade. Therefore I hope this will help to continue to bring stability to the country.One way of getting in on any future potential growth could be by investing in the close-ended fund of Vietnam Enterprise Investments Limited (LSE:VEIL) by Dragon Capital. This fund invests in a number of both listed and pre-IPO companies in Vietnam, with sectors including banks and real estate.I believe it offers a chance to invest in an emerging market with a lot of potential. I am not the only one who thinks this way: some of the significant shareholders in the fund include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the City of London Investment Management Company, along with a number of other trusts and funds.It has recently been trading with a discount to the net asset value, while the fund can also be held as part of a Stocks and Shares ISA.What are the potential risks and downsides?Investing in emerging markets can sometimes be a bit of a roller-coaster, and although the Vietnamese government is more stable than some in the region, things can sometimes change. However, the potential rewards could be great if the recent economic growth were to continue.I am also not thrilled about the 2% management fee that is charged, which is fairly high compared to other trusts and funds. However, this may be in part a result of not having a great deal of competition with similar funds (at least those available on the FTSE) that are invested wholly in the region.Taking all into consideration, I think that if one is able to accept a certain amount of risk versus potential reward that exists with emerging markets, then I do believe this fund makes for a good addition as a small part of my diverse portfolio.

Las ocho resoluciones afirman la pertenencia de la Iglesia Episcopal a la Comunión Anglicana y su compromiso con la misma.La primera resolución que surgió fue la A126, presentada por el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia, dice que la Iglesia “no puede adoptar el Pacto en su forma actual”. Otra resolución del Consejo (A145) expresa gratitud a los que han trabajado en la redacción del pacto y compromete a la Iglesia a un continuo diálogo y participación en la Comunión Anglicana.Luego, en abril, se presentaron otras dos resolucionesLa Resolución B006, propuesta por el obispo John Bauerschmidt, de Tennessee, y respaldada por otros 10 obispos, le pide a la Iglesia que ratifique y adopte el pacto.En la audiencia del 6 de julio, Bauerschmidt dijo que su resolución compromete a la Iglesia “a continuar el proceso” y a discernir cómo modificar el pacto según la Constitución y Cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal. “Esto es necesario si en verdad buscamos, como una comunión, ser de una misma mente y corazón y compartir una vida común”, afirmó. “Hemos visto cuánto daño se ha hecho en la Iglesia Episcopal por falta de un proceso para resolver problemas muy debatidos”.La Rda. Carola von Wrangel, diputada de la Convocación de las Iglesias Episcopales en Europa, también habló a favor de la B006. “Somos parte de la Comunión Anglicana mundial. Yo creo que el pacto fortalecerá a la Comunión Anglicana y a la Iglesia Episcopal. ¿Cómo nos sentaremos juntos a la mesa?”.Wrangel dijo que su congregación en la iglesia de Cristo Rey [Christ-the-King] en Frankfurt, Alemania, representa a 35 países diferentes. “Los problemas que nos dividen son los problemas que dividen a mi parroquia. Creo que el pacto nos ayudará a permanecer juntos, no a alejarnos unos de otros”.La Resolución B005, propuesta por el obispo de Connecticut, Ian Douglas, y respaldada por otros dos obispos, alentaría a la Iglesia a abrazar el preámbulo y las primeras tres secciones de las cuatro que contiene el documento. Esto, dijo Douglas a ENS, garantizaría que la Iglesia no se elimine a sí misma del proceso del pacto.La cuarta sección del documento, que bosqueja un método disciplinario para resolver disputas en la Comunión, ha sido el principal punto de fricción del pacto.Entre otras resoluciones propuestas se incluyen la D006, que le pide a la Iglesia que rehúse adoptar el pacto, diciendo que luego de un extenso estudio la Iglesia es “incapaz de llegar a un claro consenso y, en consecuencia, no está dispuesta a seguir gastando fondos, tiempo y energía en este pacto propuesto”. En su lugar, la resolución le pide a la Iglesia Episcopal que se comprometa con “Un Pacto para la Comunión en Misión” elaborado por la Comisión Permanente Anglicana sobre Misión y Evangelización, “de manera que las provincias de la Comunión Anglicana puedan ser eficaces en promover la presencia y la restauración de Dios para aquellas [personas] quebrantadas y desposeídas”, según el texto que se propone.Otra resolución (D007) insta también a la Iglesia a rehusar la adopción del pacto, diciendo que es “contrario a la eclesiología y tradición anglicanas y a los intereses más importantes de la Comunión Anglicana”.La Rda. Susan Russell, diputada de Los Ángeles, propuso la D007. “El pacto intenta crear una autoridad centralizada… que inhibe a la Iglesia de llevar a cabo la misión del evangelio”, dijo ella. “La Escritura y la tradición nos dicen del valor de la idea de un pacto, y la razón nos lleva a rechazarla. Insto a elegir la comunión por encima del pacto y a decir no a esta propuesta mal concebida”.Lelanda Lee, diputada por Colorado y miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo, habló a favor de la D007 porque dijo que el pacto “no hace las cosas que se suponía que hiciera cuando fue redactado por primera vez y que la 4ª. Sección resulta punitiva para quienes debían ser hermanos y hermanas”.Mary Reorich, diputada laica por Pensilvania, hablando a favor de la D007, dijo que el pacto “ha servido para dividir. Se usará de formas no previstas para interferir… Esto no contribuye o alienta los vínculos de afecto. Yo no me uní a una Iglesia pactada o confesional ni quiero unirme a tal Iglesia”.La Resolución D008 no menciona específicamente el pacto, pero sigue el modelo adoptado por varias diócesis de la Iglesia de Inglaterra que se han opuesto a adoptar el pacto.La D008 le pide a la Iglesia que “encuentre medios de mantener y reforzar fuertes vínculos a través de la Comunión Anglicana mundial”, y a profundizar su participación en los ministerios y redes de la Comunión que ya existen, especialmente Indaba Continuo, que está explorando las vías de comunicación a través de diferentes contextos.El Rdo. Tobias Haller, diputado de Nueva York que propuso la D008, ha servido en el grupo de referencia para Indaba Continuo. Dijo que si la Iglesia adopta o no el pacto, “somos anglicanos”.Indaba Continuo, explicó él, ayuda a la Comunión Anglicana “a no dejar que los desacuerdos nos incapaciten, sino que nos potencien. Les insto a adoptar esta resolución, o al menos a incorporar su lenguaje en cualquier resolución que el comité recomiende”.La diputada laica Samantha Cutlip, de New York Occidental, habló a favor de la Resolución D046, que califica al pacto “polémico” y pide que la Iglesia “reafirme el compromiso de la Iglesia Episcopal con los principios históricos del cristianismo anglicano”.“Si votamos a favor [del pacto] sólo nos dividiremos más”, dijo. “Sólo podemos aprender más los unos de los otros si avanzamos en los vínculos del afecto”.Otra resolución (la C115) propuesta por la Diócesis de Easton, alienta a más estudio y reflexión sobre el propuesto Pacto Anglicano durante el próximo trienio. El testimonio público sobre esa resolución se oirá el 9 de julio.El Comité sobre Misión Mundial discutirá el testimonio de las audiencias y considerará todas las resoluciones que se han propuesto antes de recomendar una legislación a las cámaras de la Convención General.El Pacto Anglicano fue propuesto por primera vez en el Informe Windsor de 2004 como un modo en que la Comunión y sus 38 provincias autónomas podrían mantenerse unidas a pesar de sus diferencias, especialmente relacionadas con asuntos de interpretación bíblica y de la sexualidad humana. El informe se produjo a raíz de la elección de Gene Robinson, sacerdote abiertamente homosexual, como obispo de Nuevo Hampshire, un suceso debido al cual varias provincias declararon rota o afectada su comunión con la Iglesia Episcopal. El pacto también fue una respuesta a algunos líderes de la Iglesia que cruzaron las fronteras de otras provincias para ministrar a anglicanos desafectos.Luego de cinco años de discusiones y la redacción de varias versiones, el texto final del pacto se envió en diciembre de 2009 a las provincias de la Comunión para su consideración formal.Douglas, que es copresidente del Comité de la Misión Mundial, en recientes declaraciones a ENS dijo que la Iglesia Episcopal ha participado “en un nivel extremadamente alto” al considerar cada anteproyecto del pacto.La 76ª. Convención General en julio de 2009 le pidió a las diócesis, mediante la Resolución D020, que estudiara el Pacto Anglicano durante el trienio 2010-2012. También le pidió al Consejo Ejecutivo que preparara un informe, junto con un anteproyecto de legislación propuesta, para la 77ª. Convención General este año. Esa resolución llevó al Consejo a crear el Equipo de Trabajo D020, que hizo público su informe junto con la Resolución A126 en octubre de 2011.La Comisión Permanente sobre Constitución y Cánones determinó en un informe de junio de 2011, a petición del Equipo de Trabajo D020, que la adopción del anteproyecto actual del Pacto Anglicano “tiene la posibilidad de cambiar el marco constitucional y canónico de la Iglesia Episcopal, particularmente en lo tocante a la autonomía de nuestra Iglesia y a la autoridad constitucional de la Convención General, los obispos y las diócesis”.Las resoluciones A126, B005 y B006 que están siendo consideradas por la Convención General piden la creación de un nuevo equipo de trabajo que exploraría los cambios canónicos que sería necesarios si la Iglesia fuese a adoptar el pacto en su totalidad.Algunos episcopales y anglicanos, incluido el Consejo Ejecutivo, han manifestado sus inquietudes de que el pacto sea usado como un instrumento de control, cuestionando en particular su 4ª. Sección y el proceso de resolución de disputas que ésta contiene. Algunos críticos han advertido que adoptar el pacto daría lugar a una Comunión de dos niveles.“No encuentro útil la 4ª. Sección”, dijo Douglas a ENS recientemente. “Creo que hace que el pacto pase de ser un documento que es relacional a uno que es más jurídico. Sí creo que las tres primeras secciones son relacionales y misionales”.Reacciones a escala de la ComuniónA través de la Comunión Anglicana, siete provincias han aprobado o suscrito el Pacto Anglicano: Irlanda, México, Myanmar, Papúa Nueva Guinea, Sudeste de Asia, Cono Sur de América y Las Antillas.El Sínodo General de la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa votó el 8 de junio en contra de adoptar el pacto.En marzo, resultó claro que la Iglesia de Inglaterra no podría adoptar el pacto en su forma actual cuando una mayoría de sus diócesis rechazaron el documento.La Iglesia Anglicana del Sur de África ha adoptado el documento pendiente de que su próxima reunión del sínodo lo ratifique más adelante este año.En abril pasado la Iglesia de Gales le dio al pacto “una luz ámbar, más bien que una luz verde”. El organismo gobernante de la Iglesia dijo que temía que el reciente rechazo del pacto por la Iglesia de Inglaterra pusiera en peligro su futuro y ahora se necesitan algunas aclaraciones al respecto antes de que pueda tomarse una decisión. [La Iglesia de Gales] le envió algunas preguntas sobre el asunto al Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el principal organismo en el diseño de políticas de la Iglesia, que se reúne más tarde este año.Los obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal en las Filipinas han rechazado el pacto [al igual que] la Acción Maorí en la Iglesia Anglicana en Aotearoa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia en noviembre pasado, lo cual significa que podría ser rechazado cuando se presente ante el Sínodo General de la provincia en julio del presente año.El Rdo. Malcolm French, de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá, habló en la audiencia del 6 de julio a favor de la D007, haciendo notar que la Comunión Anglicana es una familia de iglesias. “Si estamos dispuestos a reunirnos, entonces no hace falta ningún pacto; y si no lo estamos, entonces ningún pacto bastará”, dijo French, moderador de la Coalición por el No al Pacto Anglicano. “Teóricamente, habría visto un problema si hubiéramos sido la primera Iglesia en decir que no, pero ése no es el caso”.Lionel Diemel, fundador y convocante a la Coalición por el No al Pacto Anglicano, dijo que “el propósito subyacente del pacto es suprimir el cambio. Muchos promueven el pacto en nombre de la unidad, pero la Comunión Anglicana no es monolítica… No necesitamos que otras iglesias nos castiguen cuando intentamos hacer justicia”.Douglas le había dicho previamente a ENS que “la Comunión tiene que ver fundamentalmente con relaciones —relaciones más allá de nuestras diferencias en servicio a la misión de Dios— y no algún tipo de declaración jurídica, contractual o eclesiológica”.— Matthew Davies es director y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

first_imgMonday Nov 22, 2010 New Zealand en route for Grand Slam after beating Ireland The All Blacks continued their classy assault of the northern hemisphere with a convincing 38-18 win over Ireland at Lansdowne Road in what was the most entertaining game of the weekend.Ireland competed valiantly for parts of the game but New Zealand managed to score tries with what looked like languid ease as they did what they do best, following the adage of letting the ball do the work.Kieran Read crossed for two tries while second rowers Sam Whitelock and Anthony Boric each scored one. Dan Carter, looking back to his best on this tour, kicked 18 points as he came within a few points of edging Jonny Wilkinson as the highest Test points scorer of all time.Carter has said he was keen to kick some of the opportunities at goal that captain Richie McCaw turned down. “I didn’t know how many points I needed, I just wanted to take the kick,” Carter said. “When I found out afterwards I gave Richie some stick about it!McCaw, who with Mils Muliaina jointly achieved the record for All Blacks caps on the night, said that he wasnt aware of Carter being so close to the points record.“Dan obviously knew how many points he was on because I had no idea, I wasn’t thinking like that,” said McCaw. “He said to me afterwards, ‘Jeez, if you’d given me that I would have got the record’.“I thought, ‘Oh well, next week!’. Had I known I don’t know if I’d done it any differently. The difference between a 15 and 18-point lead isn’t much, so I thought we’d put the pressure on. But now I understand why he was asking for the shot at goal!”While they lost by 20 points, one of the highlights for Ireland was an incredible try scored by midfield marvel Brian ODriscoll as he swooped down to pick up a loose ball as though he were on the training field. He scooped it up then dived over for a great try.Flanker Stephen Ferris, who scored the first try of the game, has since questioned the All Blacks methods of slowing the ball down at the breakdown.“If I’d been a referee I would have handed out a couple of yellow cards,” said Ferris.“It’s hard because when you’re in the middle of the pitch you get fast ball, but when you’re in their 22 it keeps getting killed. It’s the same old faces that are doing it, but they’re good at it and get away with it. Richie McCaw did a great job at slowing it down. It’s frustrating, but they’re also good at poaching the ball legally,” he added.Ireland play Argentina next, while the All Blacks head to Wales looking for the Grand Slam.

It is a recent urbanization with a young afforestation of acacia trees and maritime pines and some sectors of consolidated forest. The site, with an extensive forty-five-meter front, belongs to the latter sector, so that the house had to incorporate this privileged landscape, while at the same time protecting its privacy towards the street. It was also necessary to consider that the dune it is part of has a slope of almost two meters overlooking the front and that, although its surroundings have a dense grove of trees, the land is only partiallycovered with species.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe CommissionThe commission was a house of no more than 150 sqm, with an aesthetic-constructive proposal similar to the other houses built in the area by the studio, valued according to the clients both for their spatial richness and for the low maintenance required. It had to have a generous meeting space, a visually integrated kitchen, two bedrooms (one with private bathroom) and an integrated living space to be used as an audio and video room and, eventually, as a guest bedroom. It should also have a grill and an expansion terrace.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe ProposalIt was then decided that the different uses would be naturally accommodated on the slope of the land, distributed in three volumes that would simplify the procedure. These volumes are staggered with a difference of 45 cm between them, giving place in this displacement to the formation of small courtyards that incorporate the surrounding landscape. This first decision was the trigger for successive operations derived from it: the first one was the rotation of the floor plan in relation to the sides of the lot in order to coincide with its natural slope. Hence, the alignment of the main axis of the house with the north-south direction and, as a consequence of the latter, the need to resolve the project with well-differentiated façades: the east side exposed to the gaze from the street with very controlled openings, and the west side with large openings protected by vegetation. The northern end of the building was designed as the culmination of the common space 2 with a large semi-covered balcony protected from the views from the street by the local pastures and with distant views of great scenic value.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianThe Functional OrganizationThe entrance was planned in the centre of the floor plan, i.e. at the midpoint of the slope and at the same level as the living/dining/kitchen area and the outdoor expansion. From there, a small flight of gently sloping stairs leads up to the most reserved area of the bedrooms, or descends to the living area to contemplate the landscape in front of the fireplace. The interior courtyards incorporate light, transparencies, reflections and vegetation into the rooms.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Federico KulekdjianStructural Resolution and ConstructionTwo unique materials: concrete and glass, were used to solve the integration with the landscape and to respond to the formal, structural, functional, finishing and maintenance issues. The structural solution adopted was to cover each volume with a slab that rests on inverted beams that are intertwined working together throughout the house. From these beams, the slabs extend into large cantilevers. The roofs between beams were designed as green terraces to increase the thermal insulation, as they receive sun during most of the day. The few hollow brick interior partitions are finished in painted, hardened plaster. The floor is made ofcement smoothing cloths divided by aluminum planks. The openings are made of dark bronze anodized aluminum.

first_imgDeals demand exceeds expectationsOn 18 Jul 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Partnership agreements have been so successful at BOC Edwards that it appears management cannot keep pace with the demand to introduce them.Head of human resources Stephen Gaskell said other plants worldwide now want to implement partnership agreements.But he said the amount of managerial time required to do so means the company is holding back temporarily.He added, “The impact has been massive. We have world-class sites that are delivering far beyond our expectations.Gaskell said BOC Edwards’ approach over the past five years would have “provoked horror” in former managers.“In the 1970s and 80s the management had a macho approach and pretty well got what it deserved.”He said partnership had involved spelling out to the workforce the link between individual employee contribution and business success as well as the company’s willingness to reward them financially for their skills.Staff were told they would be rewarded for what they – or their team – contributed to the company. They were offered the opportunity to develop a career. If they did not wish to do so, they were told they could remain at the same level and be rewarded for the experience and expertise they brought to the job rather than see their pay remain static.Gaskell added, “They [the employees] are very much involved in the business and are able to influence their future.“We did not expect it [partnership] to have quite such an impact. We have found it has fuelled new initiatives which staff come up with themselves.”One proposal put forward by staff, he said, was flexi-time in the early morning and evening.“We had no reason not to. We chucked out the rule book.” Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
