Gold’s role as the ultimate safe-haven has come to the fore again in early 2020. Its surge to seven-year peaks around $1,600 per ounce was impressive, but at the same time not unexpected.Tensions between the US and Iran may have proved the spark, though a policy of loose monetary policy by global central banks, allied with concerns over the next phase of trade talks between Chinese and American lawmakers, also drove flight-to-safety interest in the eternal metal and continues to do so.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…I’ve argued that the tense macroeconomic and geopolitical landscape will lead to more mighty gold price gains this year. This is despite prices cooling and falling back towards the $1,550 per ounce marker more recently.Still, the performance of gold could well be put in the shade by another commodity class in 2020: the platinum group metals (or PGMs). Indeed, while the yellow metal has taken a step back, prices of these assets continue to rip higher.Record-breaking palladium keeps on goingTake palladium, for example. This dual-role metal gives investors the best of both worlds, its position as both investment and industrial material has seen it rising on the back of safe-haven buying, as well as hopes of a breakthrough in the US-Chinese trade impasse.While gold rose an impressive 22% in value over the past 12 months palladium’s gains have been even greater. It’s up over 80% over the period and has just struck new record peaks, around $2,580 per ounce.Lease rates have boomed in recent days as buyers scramble to secure metal for immediate delivery, so great are fears over palladium shortages. And don’t expect this to be a flash in the pan either. Greater environmental standards mean that demand from the car sector to clean up exhaust emissions should keep on rising. Meanwhile, a lack of new mine projects casts doubt on where this metal will come from.Surf SylvaniaSo how can investors ride the booming palladium price, you may ask. How about buying the physical metal itself, or a palladium-backed ETF which track price movements? Not for me, I’m afraid. I’d rather buy shares in a dedicated PGM producer like Sylvania Platinum (LSE: SLP).This is an AIM stock which has surged 120% in value over the past 12 months, and yet is one that still appears grossly undervalued by the market. For the fiscal year ending June 2020, it boasts a rock-bottom P/E ratio of below 5 times, created by predictions of an 83% profits surge.This isn’t the only reason why Sylvania Platinum is a better buy though. Getting exposure to rising metal prices gives investors the chance to latch on to big dividends. And Sylvania’s is an absolute doozy as it carries a monster 5.1% forward yield.But Sylvania ain’t just a great play on palladium prices, of course. Other PGMs, like rhodium (up 200% in 12 months) and platinum (up 27%), are also on the charge on the same supply and demand considerations. All things considered, I reckon Sylvania could prove to best the hottest commodities play this year.

Grab your free report – while it’s online. The investing saying that we should “Sell in May and go away” is a common one. The idea is that stock markets drift a bit during the summer when people have better things to do. And they get serious again once the days start getting shorter.There is evidence that the summer months are weaker than the rest of the year, on average. And in 2020, it might have been better to switch off from the stock market for other reasons. But what about investors who sold out at the beginning of May this year? What might they have missed?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…There are some nice gains at Lloyds Banking Group, for one thing. The Lloyds share price has been climbing all year, up more than 35%. And the momentum carried on through May. Lloyds shares are still down since the pandemic, and it’s been a tough five years. But would I sell in May, just when my shares are finally starting to pick up? What the rest of the summer still holds is anybody’s guess. But with Lloyds dividends coming back, I’d still be a buyer now and not a seller.Not all shares have kept on going up, mind. Argo Blockchain has been big in the news in 2021, as it chased the Bitcoin price upwards. But it’s been a poor May for Argo shareholders, following several previous poor months, as the shares have declined. Selling in February might have been better, with hindsight. So sell in May? If someone gave me some Argo Blockchain shares, yes, I’d sell them. In May, or in any month.Dump before the summer?The UK’s airlines have picked up in 2021, with International Consolidated Airlines ahead more than 20%. And easyJet is not far behind. It’s all been down to the opening up after lockdowns, as people turn their thoughts to sun and sand. The airlines have had a pretty mixed month in May, mind, so what’s next for them? I’ll make no short-term guesses. But I also wouldn’t sell just ahead of the summer holiday season.Related to the airline business, the Rolls-Royce share price hasn’t gone anywhere in May. In fact, it’s close to flat overall since the start of 2021. But if I owned Rolls shares, would I have wanted to sell in May? Ahead of the summer season when we might see things perk up as planes get flying some more? Not a chance.An alternative to “Sell in May“These share price movements I’m talking about are all very short term. They say absolutely nothing about where the shares will go in the longer term. So no, I wouldn’t base any investment decisions on short-term moves, and this look at them is just for a bit of fun.But I do have a variation on the “Sell in May and go away” theme. Whenever I invest, I only buy shares when I feel I’d be happy to “Buy now and go away for five years.” That’s my minimum investing horizon. And to follow Warren Buffett’s advice, if I wouldn’t hold a share for five years, I wouldn’t hold it for even five minutes.

first_img [Episcopal News Service] Episcopal cathedrals joined their counterparts across the Anglican Communion in a simultaneous tolling of bells on April 18 as an expression of support for Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris after a fire destroyed the roof and spire of that centuries-old Roman Catholic landmark.The Episcopal cathedrals, including Washington National Cathedral, tolled their bells at 2 p.m. EDT to coincide with bell tolling around the world, timed for 7 p.m. in Paris in recognition of the hour three days ago when the fire was first discovered at Notre Dame.National Cathedral in the U.S. capital sounded its large bourdon bell “as a mark of solidarity following the devastating fire at Notre Dame Cathedral,” the cathedral said in a Facebook post. Episcopal cathedrals in Cleveland, Ohio; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Boise, Idaho; Jackson, Mississippi; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and other cities also announced they would toll their bells at the same time.The Very Rev. Bernard Owens, dean of Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland, issued a statement in which he described cathedrals as sacred places that “speak of God’s transcendence in the midst of the places where we live, work, worship and play.” He also noted his own cathedral recently completed a series of fire protection upgrades.“God is present in these sacred vessels, and so we grieve when fire and flood consume them,” Owens said. “We pray for those whose lives and livelihoods are connected to this magnificent cathedral today, and we pray for the safety of those who will work to preserve and rebuild it in the years to come.”The Episcopal Cathedral of St. John in Albuquerque, in addition to tolling its bells, will incorporate music with connections to Notre Dame into its Maundy Thursday and Easter services.The cathedral’s music director and organist, Maxine Thevenot, had the rare distinction of playing the Notre Dame organ twice. In a news release issued by St. John, Thevenot lamented the Notre Dame fire, saying it felt “like a kick in the gut.”The show of solidarity follows a call by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Archbishop of York John Sentamu to all cathedrals in the Church of England asking them to toll their bells together April 18.

France has planned a daylong tribute April 18 to the hundreds of firefighters who battled the blaze for nine hours and helped save Notre Dame from a more severe catastrophe.French President Emmanuel Macron vowed to rebuild the damaged cathedral in time for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, but some experts warn the work could take decades and cost billions of dollars.Notre Dame Cathedral, which was completed in 1345 after nearly 200 years of construction, has long been revered as a global architectural icon, and not just for Roman Catholics. News of the fire prompted outpourings of grief this week, and social media users filled feeds with stories of their past visits to Notre Dame.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, in a statement issued with the Very Rev. Lucinda Laird, dean of the American Cathedral in Paris, and Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe Bishop in Charge Mark D.W. Edington, offered “our sincere condolences and our readiness to offer any hospitality that would be of help to the community and congregation of Notre Dame in this most holy season of the faith we share.”More than $1 billion already has been raised for repairing Notre Dame, though the flood of donations sparked some backlash from those questioning whether charity dollars would be better used helping people rather than repairing buildings.At the same time, the response seems to have had the unexpected side effect of drawing attention to the plight of three historically black congregations in Louisiana still struggling after an arsonist set fire to their churches this spring. Since the Notre Dame fire, donors have given nearly $2 million to a GoFundMe campaign for rebuilding those three churches in St. Landry Parish.St. Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral in Jackson, Mississippi, referred to the Louisiana church fires in announcing its plans to join other cathedrals in tolling bells on April 18.The Notre Dame fire has “brought back painful memories of other beloved houses of worship that have been destroyed or damaged by fire,” the Jackson cathedral said in a Facebook post. “We at St. Andrew’s Cathedral are mindful that our own first two edifices were destroyed by fire.”St. Andrew’s will toll its bourdon bell “as an expression of solidarity following the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and in solidarity with all whose sacred house of worship has burned.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Yep, each one was distinctively one of mama’s cookies, and delicious it was too.Now I have to ask you, how in the world could a little dollop of cookie dough be remembered for eighty plus years?  You want to know something?  I think that even though those cookies touched our eyes, our noses, and our taste buds, I believe they touched our hearts even more.I think that Papa God is sort of like that, serving up sweet little morsels of life and love that caress our hearts with delightful little dollops of memory that we carry with us for a lifetime.Dear God, thank you so much for my mama, she not only gave me life but she saved me by bringing me to you.  And thank you so very much for your undying love.  In Jesus’ wonderful and holy name I ask it, Amen.Live fully, Love openly, and make a difference, today. charles towne Charles, you have a way with words. Your story brings up in my mind the fond memories of my sister Julie and I. We were the two of the six kids that really liked to bake. I would make peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies and Julie would make her snicker doodles and buck-eyes. It helped my mom that we loved baking, so she didn’t have to do it all. It makes me laugh now but I recall being very protective about my cookie dough. If I wasn’t careful, my other sister, Karin, would sneak in and eat the dough. Everyone knows how delicious cookie dough is! Anyway, thanks for the story and the memories. charles towne November 5, 2017 at 4:24 pm Ahhh….you are going to try to lure me to your article with talk of aromas of warm sugar cookies, instead of stinky ole’ skunk stories…..that’ll work with me!….LOL Mama Mia, blessings dear lady! Sometime I will tell you about making fudge on the old home place! I will never forget the time mama made two big pans of chocolate fudge, and due to the fact it was winter in Illinois and there was snow on the ground, she put the fudge out on the porch to cool. Our big tomcat, Uncle Timmy waled through the fudge but we ate it anyway and made a joke out of the delicious cat track fudge! Well, I guess I told you about that didn’t I? You have a good day and let the memories loose now and then or they are apt to explode!

That said, mom faded into the background when the holidays rolled around and the GRANDMAS took over in their contest to see which side of the family could make the best,most different kinds, and prettiest cookies! For us as kids it was a bonanza I miss to this day! charles towne Please enter your name here Reply Brought back memories of my mom making chocolate chip cookies and many other delightful treats for our family. Mom still subscribes to the “dessert first” policy. I was out on my own before I learned that butterscotch pudding could be eaten cold.

The operation’s commander and Commanding Officer of the FS Jean Bart, Captain Benoit Bautonnière, requested HMAS Darwin close and investigate the skiff.HMAS Darwin’s Commanding Officer, Commander Terry Morrison, said Australia’s interoperability with the French was key to the interdiction.“Today we removed these drugs from potential terrorist funding networks and demonstrated the highly effective interoperability of HMAS Darwin, FS Atlantique’s aircraft, FS Jean Bart and Combined Task Force 150,” Commander Morrison said.SEIZED CONTRABANDFS Jean Bart and HMAS Darwin are currently deployed on patrol under tasking to the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) and the Australian led Combined Task Force (CTF) 150.CTF 150 Australian commander Commodore Daryl Bates said the seizure reinforces concerns that smugglers are active in the Red Sea area.CTF 150 is one of three principle task forces operated by the CMF a 30-nation coalition based in Bahrain.
