No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm Show Comments ▼ ATTENTION has turned to the Eurozone’s fourth largest economy as Spain’s leaders scramble to assure the markets that it will not follow Ireland’s lead.Most agree that a Spanish bailout would be potentially fatal for the euro and would exhaust the €440bn of Eurozone funds set aside for emergency aid to its teetering economies. Economists at Fathom Consulting highlighted wrote yesterday: “Spain’s GDP is almost twice the size of Portugal, Greece and Ireland combined and therefore any hint of trouble would send shockwaves through the euro area.”The government has implemented a severe austerity plan and has managed to slash its deficit this year to comply with its target of 9.3 per cent for 2011 (versus over 11 per cent last year). But its leaders are painfully aware that even Ireland’s much-praised €15bn of cuts this year did not keep it safe from the market panic. Spain held a successful auction of short-dated government debt yesterday, selling off €3.26bn’s worth of three and six-month gilts, but the cost of its borrowing had nearly doubled since its last such auction a month ago. Most regard the punitive yields being demanded – 10-year gilt yields jumped above five per cent today – as unsustainable. However, the government has built up a less daunting mountain of debt than has Ireland: its debt is estimated at 60 per cent of GDP versus 100 per cent. Wednesday 24 November 2010 9:03 pm

Shares in FTSE 100 dividend growth stock Flutter Entertainment (LSE: FLTR) have slumped in value over the past few weeks. Indeed, after hitting an all-time high in mid-February, the stock has since crashed by nearly 40%.However, this appears to be an overreaction based on what’s happened to the online gaming market in China. As such, now could be an excellent time for long-term investors to snap up a share of this FTSE 100 dividend growth stock at a discount price.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…Growth concernsFlutter is one of the largest sports betting and gaming operators in the world. This doesn’t mean the company is wholly isolated from the impacts of the global coronavirus outbreak. Nevertheless, it could be better positioned to weather the storm than most.You see, while the cancellation of major sporting events around the world will hit betting volumes, the group’s online casino and gaming businesses could thrive. This is based on the impact the outbreak has had on China’s Tencent Holdings.Tencent is one of China’s largest digital companies. Its subsidiaries specialise in various online activities, including gaming. China’s decision to lock down its economy has had a substantial positive impact on the business.As millions of Chinese citizens have been confined to their homes, demand for Tencent’s games has spiked. Following this growth, the company reckons revenue in the second quarter will surpass all expectations.Tencent’s experience suggests that while Flutter will lose some revenue from the cancellation of major sporting events, rising demand for online games could offset some of these losses.Dividend growthAs well as all of the above, Flutter has a strong balance sheet. This will help support the business through these tough times. At the end of its 2019 financial year, the group’s ratio of net debt to shareholder equity was just 11%.What’s more, last year the company’s dividend cost the group a total of £156m. That’s compared to free cash flow around £300m. These numbers imply Flutter’s dividend is safe, even if earnings fall 50%.It seems unlikely the company will report such a severe decline. If economic growth returns in the second half, Flutter is likely to make a rapid recovery. Therefore, it would appear investors can depend on Flutter’s 3.5% dividend yield. Because payout has grown at an annual rate of 8% for the past six years, it also seems likely management will look to increase the dividend next year as well. That’s assuming the economy can recover in the second half of 2020.Overall, it looks as if this FTSE 100 dividend growth stock could be an attractive addition to your portfolio after recent declines. Flutter’s online business should provide some revenue protection in the near term. And when the economy finally starts to pull itself back together again, the group’s global presence should help it return to growth. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Hopkinsville, KY February 21, 2017 at 5:22 pm Wonderful. The county police department where I live receives free gun locks from the federal government — the police department in turn gives them away to groups like our local gun violence prevention coalition to disperse at churches and community events. I would note that the preferred term for these “accidents” is unintentional shootings rather than accidents. Accident implies that no one is as fault, when every gun that a child touches, first must pass through the hands of an adult who neglected to store it properly. Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Tags Rector Bath, NC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Curate Diocese of Nebraska The Rev. Marc Smith, at an Easter service in 2016, was vicar at Church of the Ascension in St. Louis before being named the Diocese of Missouri’s deputy for gun violence prevention. Photo: Church of the Ascension.[Episcopal News Service] St. Louis has been called America’s “murder capital” after a recent spike in gun violence that resulted in more killings per capita than any other major U.S. city.Chicago recorded the most total homicides in 2016 at 762, but for a smaller city like St. Louis, its 188 killings last year are part of an alarming local trend that has prompted a renewed focus – including by the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri – on the causes and possible solutions of such violence.“One death is too many,” the Rev. Marc Smith said, but developing a plan of response to 188 deaths defies easy answers. “Looking for the elegant, simple solution is wrong,” he said. “It is an incredibly complex problem.”Smith is the Diocese of Missouri’s point person in the search for answers. Last year, he was named by Bishop Wayne Smith to the newly created position of deputy for gun violence prevention, and this year, the diocese and community are beginning to see some of the early fruits of his efforts.One of his tasks is to help 36 community organizations coordinate more effectively on the issue of gun violence, but he’s also trying to mobilize Episcopalians at the parish level to work toward a tangible first goal: giving away gun locks to gun owners.Accidental shootings and suicides often are overlooked in the debate over gun violence, Smith said, but this danger is “probably the easiest to solve.” He sent a letter to clergy in the diocese earlier in February outlining the diocese’s new partnership with Washington University’s School of Medicine and a group called Women’s Voices Raised for Social Justice to support the group’s Lock It for Love initiative.Barbara Finch of Women’s Voices Raised for Social Justice demonstrates a gun lock at a Lock It for Love booth in October. Photo: Women’s Voices RaisedLock It for Love aims to reduce the frequency of suicides and accidental shootings by children by distributing gun locks for free. Since April 2015, Women’s Voices Raised has given out about 1,500 gun locks to families, mostly at health fairs and similar events, president Lise Bernstein said.“Sometimes the issue of gun violence can just seem overwhelming and frustrating and depressing,” Bernstein said. The focus on gun locks was a way to rally the community around a hands-on solution to one slice of the larger problem.“We are very much interested in engaging as many people in the community as possible in addressing this issue of kids and keeping kids safe,” Bernstein said, “so the interest of the diocese is very welcome.”Bernstein and Smith also share the belief that gun violence should be tackled as a public health issue, an approach that draws on Smith’s experience as a health care administrator, including more than a decade as president of the Missouri Hospital Association.Smith, who grew up in the St. Louis area, left the health care industry to become an Episcopal priest and was assigned in 2011 to his first congregation, the Church of the Ascension on St. Louis’ north side. About six months into the job, he remembers attending the wake and funeral of a woman who was killed in a drive-by shooting. It was a somber scene he would witness again and again in the city.“The sense of desperation and hopelessness and powerlessness is crippling,” he said.The opportunity to tackle the issue directly for the diocese grew out of ongoing conversations he was having with Bishop Smith about gun violence and public health solutions. The bishop asked last year if Smith would work toward those solutions in a new role with the diocese, and Smith agreed to take it on.“Preventing gun violence is a critical issue in the communities of Eastern Missouri, especially St. Louis City and County,” Bishop Smith said in a written statement to the Episcopal News Service. “I am glad that parishes in our diocese can find a focus for mission in this work, and Marc Smith, with his passion and experience, is well-suited to provide leadership for it.”National concerns, local solutionsMuch of the national attention has been focused on Chicago’s dramatic surge in homicides, which even prompted President Donald Trump to suggest he would send in federal authorities if the trend isn’t reversed.But while Chicago may have outpaced the United States’ other largest cities, including New York, Los Angeles and Houston, smaller cities like St. Louis, Detroit and New Orleans have suffered from much higher rates of homicide per capita. St. Louis recorded nearly 60 homicides per 100,000 people last year.The national murder rate, despite remaining under the elevated level seen in the 1990s, also has risen over the past two years, and the possible causes, from gang activity to policing policies, are hotly debated.At the local level, gun violence prevention often emphasizes the practical. In St. Louis, for example, Smith said there is a group of black clergy known as “homicide ministers” who reach out to victims’ families, attend funerals and provide assistance as it is needed. The Episcopal diocese is developing a plan to partner with the ministers.Smith also is looking for additional, simple ways for Episcopalians to get involved.“So many people have expressed a desire to help, and yet most people are not inclined or well equipped to be homicide ministers,” he said.He has asked each congregation to identify one parishioner to serve as a liaison to the diocese as it coordinates efforts. Each congregation can support Lock It for Love in its own way, such as by holding fundraisers for the money to buy the gun locks or by sending volunteers to help promote the campaign at health fairs.Smith hopes this initial project will inspire Episcopalians in the St. Louis area to get active on the issue of gun violence and eventually help expand the diocese’s outreach in ways that will address some of the underlying causes.“Regardless of the debate over gun safety and constraints on guns, young people are still going to kill young people,” he said. “And toward that end, I want our limited resources to try to minimize that from happening, to help families pick up the pieces and not get caught in a cycle of retaliation.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

I think using the term “gun violence” clouds the issue, emotionally. The problem is conflict resolution. That should be done without guns, knives, baseball bats or any other violent action. Bringing into the issue the term “guns” does little to identify the basic problem, and to look for solutions to it.

Facebook Local NewsBusiness PRINCETON, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 27, 2021– Certara, Inc., the global leader in biosimulation, today announced the release of version 20 of its Simcyp™ Physiologically-based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Simulator platform. Simcyp PBPK Simulator version 20 provides new models for maternal health, virtual bioequivalence to attain biowaivers, and analysis of long-acting injectable drugs. It also delivers a newly expanded biologics module, Simcyp Biologics Simulator, that enables scientists to model a wider range of biologic modalities to accelerate drug development. Certara’s industry-leading Simcyp PBPK Simulator improves clinical trial efficiency and outcomes through the modeling and simulation of pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) using virtual patient populations. The Simcyp PBPK Simulator’s in silico models have informed the label claims of more than 75 novel FDA-approved drugs, reducing the need to conduct human clinical studies. This mechanistic modeling approach, developed over the past 20 years, is well established in predicting the PK of small molecules and is now increasingly being applied to biologic drug development. Simcyp PBPK Simulator version 20 offers new and enhanced models for maternal health, such as assessing drug performance during pregnancy and lactation. It also automates the assessment of virtual bioequivalence to attain biowaivers and analyzes drugs delivered via long-acting injectable delivery. Additional upgrades have been made to the Simcyp PBPK Simulator’s animal, liver, absorption, and skin models. “We are thrilled to offer new capabilities that accelerate modern drug development with the launch of our latest Simcyp Simulator,” said William F. Feehery, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Certara. “Our Simcyp team, working with the world’s most innovative biopharmaceutical companies, has expanded the applicability of PBPK modeling and simulation to advance small molecules and biologics in key therapeutic areas such as oncology, autoimmune diseases, and rare diseases.” The expanded Simcyp Biologics Simulator delivers first-in-human PK prediction and dose selection, target selection and validation by linking PK to pharmacology, tumor penetration of proteins, target shedding, and the impact on tumor receptor occupancy. Pharmacokinetic properties of biologics are structurally complex, requiring specific mechanistic models to explore potential clinical complexities before human testing. Simcyp Biologics Simulator is also available as a standalone software. “The information and conclusions generated by Simcyp Biologics Simulator will support mission critical decisions as customers look to optimize a biologic drug’s safety and efficacy profile,” said Masoud Jamei, Ph.D., senior vice president of research and development of Certara’s Simcyp division. “To support these advanced medicines, which comprise 40% of the global biopharmaceutical R&D pipeline, Certara has broadened access to Simcyp Biologics Simulator by offering it as a standalone software.” For more information, please visit: https://www.certara.com/software/simcyp-pbpk/.
