No recession from energy prices

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share Tuesday 22 March 2011 8:33 pm Rising energy prices will have only a “modest impact” on growth and inflation, the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said yesterday. A $10 (£6.10) hike in oil prices would knock activity in the OECD area by just 0.2 per cent in the second year after the shock, its model has suggested. However, if oil price rises are maintained at recent rates (which have seen a $25 per barrel upturn) then activity could be knocked by half a per cent, and inflation could rise by 0.75 per cent, the OECD said.

Move over Amazon! A £1,000 investment in these FTSE 100 and 250 stocks delivered higher returns

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by James J. McCombie James J. McCombie | Tuesday, 21st January, 2020 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. John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors. James J. McCombie has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Amazon and Netflix. The Motley Fool UK has recommended 4IMPRINT GROUP PLC ORD 38 6/13P. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro.

Move over Amazon! A £1,000 investment in these FTSE 100 and 250 stocks delivered higher returnscenter_img Enter Your Email Address As a UK investor, reading about the astonishing gains made by US tech stocks can be tough. According to data from, a £1,000 investment in Netflix made in 2009 would have grown to £41,308 by 2019. A similar investment in Amazon would have been worth £19,320. Holding Netflix and Amazon over those 10 years would have returned 4,031% and 1,832% respectively. Could a UK investor have owned these stocks in an ISA or SIPP? As long as the provider made these stocks available and additional paperwork was completed, then yes, they could have.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…Dealing in international stocks does add extra layers of complication, including the effect of exchange rates on the sterling value of the investment. For those unwilling or unable to bear the complexities, does that mean missing out on the opportunity of US tech stock style returns?No, it does not. Using data from AJ Bell, I found multiple UK stocks that made enormous 10-year gains. I have already written about three AIM 100 stocks that delivered +3,000%. One of them beat Netflix, and the other two got close.However, there are stocks in the FTSE 250 and even the FTSE 100, that raked up eye-watering gains over the last 10 years. They didn’t do as well as Netflix, but they did outperform Amazon.FTSE flyersThe first is Ashtead Group, a company that rents out construction and industrial equipment. A £1,000 investment in Ashtead made 10 years ago would be worth around £29,383 now, returning 2,938% in total, or 40.22% on average each year.4imprint Group, a service, product, and event promotor, delivered a 2,886% return over a decade. A £1,000 investment grew by 39.97% on average for each of the last 10 years to £28,864.And finally, a 2,577% 10-year return was possible with shares in JD Sports Fashion. A £1,000 investment in this brick-and-mortar and online retailer would have grown by 38.39% on average each year to end up being worth £25,766.Ashtead and JD trade are FTSE 100 constituents, and 4imprint is as member of the FTSE 250 index.In hindsightIt’s easy to look at multiple thousands of percentage points of return and ruminate on a missed opportunity. While I grant you Ashtead and 4imprint may not be household names, they trade on the FTSE 100 and 250 respectively. JD is well-known and a FTSE 100 member.However, many investors would have missed out on the full 10 year gain for all three. Please don’t fall into the trap of thinking the fortunes of these stocks were easily predictable 10 years ago, given the results we see today. Nevertheless, each of these stocks appreciated by 1,000% at some point over the last decade. Some investors may have seen this but concluded that the ride was over. They would have missed out on the next 1,000% and then some.Instead of assuming a high-flying stock has had its best days already, do some research. What kind of market share does the company have? Can new markets be entered, or new products released? Can revenue and earnings growth continue to impress?Going all-in on one stock is foolish. After all, if it goes to zero an investor loses everything. Holding multiple stocks or entire indexes, both domestic and international, will diversify the risk in your portfolio. But if you have the capital to risk on an already hot stock, and if prospects still look exceptional, then you might catch the next 1,000%.

South Africa land on best team by chance

first_imgDe Allende was the pick of the South African centres in Super Rugby for the Stormers, and carried that form onto the Test stage.Kriel, meanwhile, impressed at full-back for the Bulls, and slotted in seamlessly at outside centre on the Test stage.While they looked very good together, the return of skipper de Villiers from injury posed a selection headache for Meyer, who first tried his captain and Kriel together against Japan.After one communication error played a key part in Ayumu Goromaru’s second-half try, Meyer paired up de Villiers and de Allende in the second game against Samoa, to great effect.Decisions: Heyneke Meyer is under pressure. Photo: Getty ImagesNow with de Villiers’ tournament over, the young duo will reunite, and could form the Springboks’ most potent midfield.Scotland would appear to be the unlucky victims of South Africa’s best team coming together more by luck than chance.Add in the recall for Willie le Roux, and this Springbok team could yet be the first team to lose a group game and become world champions. New breed: Damian de Allende will join Jessie Kriel in South Africa’s midfield LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Injuries are occurring at a far greater rate than the last World Cup but in the case of South Africa, they might have a silver lining.It was of course a terrible shame to see Jean de Villiers ruled out of the tournament with a broken jaw, calling time on a great international career and a desperately unlucky World Cup record.Returning home: De Villiers’ World Cup is over. Photo: Getty ImagesAnd the Boks have also lost their vice-captain Victor Matfield for Saturday’s crucial game against Scotland in Newcastle.However those absences mean that Heyneke Meyer has been forced to turn to two in-form combinations in the second row and the centres.Lood de Jager was a long shot to even make the World Cup after an injury-disrupted Super Rugby season, but with the Springbok second row options equally hard hit, he got his chance during the Rugby Championship.Arguably the Boks’ standout player during what was admittedly a below-par tournament for them, de Jager did enough to earn a spot as the third lock for the World Cup.On fire: Lood de Jager is in outstanding form. Photo: Getty ImagesWith Eben Etzebeth left on the bench for the opening game of the tournament against Japan, de Jager again shone, with one fantastic individual try and some powerful carrying.It seemed very harsh therefore, when he was dropped for the game against Samoa, even if Matfield and Etzebeth performed admirably.With Matfield now out, de Jager comes back in, and he and Etzebeth have the potential to challenge New Zealand for the best young lock pairing in the world.The Rugby Championship was also where the centre partnership of Damian de Allende and Jesse Kriel got their first shot together.center_img South Africa have picked up some crucial injuries but may have stumbled across their best team as a result Springbok XV: Willie le Roux; JP Pietersen, Jesse Kriel, Damian de Allende, Bryan Habana; Handre Pollard, Fourie du Preez (c); Tendai Mtawarira, Bismarck du Plessis, Jannie du Plessis; Eben Etzebeth, Lood de Jager; Francois Louw, Schalk Burger, Duane Vermeulen Reps: Adriaan Strauss, Trevor Nyakane, Frans Malherbe, Pieter-Steph du Toit, Willem Alberts, Ruan Pienaar, Pat Lambie, Jan Serfonteinlast_img read more

Five talking points from the World Cup semi-finals

first_img All-round abilityIn Cardiff a little over a week ago, New Zealand demonstrated just how lethal and creative their attacking game can be. They scored nine tries against France, offloads here, sidesteps there and Julian Savea simply bulldozing his way over the French defence! At Twickenham this weekend, it was the All Blacks’ defence and tactical kicking that was to the forefront against South Africa. The Springboks never looked close to breaking down the black wall and scoring a try while the range of kicks produced by Dan Carter & Co was impressive.Then look at Australia. Against England they ran the show, attacking from all over. Against Wales, their defence, particularly when down to 13 men, was the key. Against Argentina, they were clinical in attack and scrambled superbly in defence to deny the Pumas a try. Special mention must be made of Scott Fardy, the unsung workhorse in the Wallaby back row, and David Pocock, who won twice as many turnovers as any other player in that match.Kicking on: Dan Carter drops a goal against South Africa. Photo: Getty ImagesBoth the Wallabies and the All Blacks have shown the ability to win games in different ways, the possession of a Plan A, B and C. Wallaby coach Michael Cheika calls it showing “a different skin”; Steve Hansen says good games can look different. The question now is which style will come out on top on Saturday afternoon in the final? If they both show a little bit of everything, it should be a heck of a match and could go right down to the wire.It’s also worth saying that Argentina now have a more rounded game, their willingness to run the ball rather than relying on their forward power obvious throughout 2015 – they just weren’t as clinical as Australia in their semi-final. It’s a style they seem determined to stick with and it should reap rewards in the coming years – and maybe on Friday night against South Africa in the third-place play-off.Softly-softly approachLet’s preface this point by saying that player safety should be the priority in rugby. However, the sin-binning of Tomas Lavanini for a no-arms tackle on Israel Folau on Sunday afternoon should not have been deemed dangerous. It may have been a penalty but the yellow card was too much. Watch it in real time and there was little in it.Seeing yellow: Israel Folau is upended by Tomas Lavanini. Photo: Getty ImagesJuan Martin Fernandez Lobbe said afterwards that it’s simply the way Lavanini tackles while Scotland flanker Ally Strokosch tweeted: “No tip tackles, no chop tackles. Soon there’ll be no tackles. These idiots are ruining the game.”Doing it the hard way If Australia go on to win this World Cup, they will have beaten six of the world’s top ten teams – a quite incredible effort. They were drawn in the same pool as three of them – England, Fiji and Wales – and, as we’ve said before, World Rugby should make future pool draws later to ensure that situation doesn’t happen again.Standing firm: Australia celebrate a decisive penalty in their win over Wales. Photo: Getty ImagesThey have then overcome Scotland and Argentina in the knockout stages, with New Zealand the sixth hurdle they have to overcome. It’s the hardest route anyone’s ever had to take to the final and should they triumph, you could say they will be the most deserving of winners.The power of social mediaOn Saturday night, pockets of rugby fans gathered around their phones to look at a Vine clip of Richie McCaw colliding with Francois Louw during New Zealand’s win over South Africa. Had the All Blacks captain elbowed the Springbok? The following day’s papers ran stories about how rugby’s most-capped player could miss the World Cup final.No tension: Richie McCaw and Francois Louw at the end of the semi-final. Photo: Getty ImagesThen more clips emerged that suggested it was McCaw’s hip that had connected with Louw’s shoulder while South Africa’s doctor confirmed that the forehead cut that required 20 stretches had occurred during a lineout, not the ruck in question. Subsequently the citing officer confirmed there would be no further action. Quite amazing how one incident can snowball, grow arms and legs, purely because of social media. It created a story out of a non-story.The emotion of sportOne particular scene stood out at the end of Argentina-Australia. Mario Ledesma, Argentina’s most-capped hooker who is now in charge of Australia’s scrum, would clearly have had mixed emotions about this fixture and was magnanimous in victory. At the final whistle, he took the time to console his fellow countrymen and particularly those he once played alongside. Break man: Drew Mitchell sycthes through Argentina’s defence. Photo: Getty Images Good friends: Mario Ledesma and Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe hug before the game. Photo: Getty ImagesThe most poignant moment of all came when he shared a lengthy hug with Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe, a man who knows he will never have another chance to win a World Cup as a player and someone who emptied the tank in this encounter with the Wallabies. The two had also embraced before kick-off. They may have been on opposite sides but their sporting bond was unmistakable.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.center_img After New Zealand and Australia booked their places in the 2015 World Cup final, we reflect on the semi-final action LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Jaco Peyper causes controversy with fans photo

In the middle of it: Jaco Peyper gestures during the quarters (Getty Images) Jaco Peyper causes controversy with fans photoJaco Peyper will play no part in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals after a controversial photograph of the referee surfaced on social media which appears to show him replicating the red card incident in the quarter-final between Wales and France.The South African referee was in charge of that last-eight tie in Oita and sent off France lock Sebastien Vahaamahina after he elbowed Aaron Wainwright in the face during a maul, early in the second half.Related: Wales 20-19 France Match ReportA few hours after the final whistle it then seems that Peyper posed with a group of Wales fans and pretended to elbow one of them. Some of the supporters look to be mimicking the elbow incident too.You can see the photo here… Regardless of whether Peyper was simply sharing a light-hearted moment with a few rugby supporters, the photo does not reflect well on the referee and he has since missed out on the chance to feature in the semis.With refereeing appointments announced for the World Cup semi-finals, World Rugby said of incident: ” World Rugby can confirm that the match officials selection committee did not consider Jaco Peyper for selection this weekend.“Peyper recognises that a picture of him with Wales fans, which appeared on social media after the Wales versus France quarter-final, was inappropriate and he has apologised.”Related: Referees for the Rugby World Cup semi-finalsThis goes alongside their initial comments, when on Monday World Rugby told Associated Press: “World Rugby is aware of a picture on social media of referee Jaco Peyper with a group of Wales fans taken after last night’s quarter-final between Wales and France in Oita. It would be inappropriate to comment further while we are establishing the facts.”It remains to be seen if the South African will play any part in the bronze final or final.England face New Zealand in the first of the semi-finals in Yokohama on Saturday while Wales take on South Africa at the same venue on Sunday. While France had no complaints about the red card in the quarter-final, they are not happy about this photo.French rugby federation vice-president Serge Simon tweeted to say: “This photo if it is true is shocking and explanations will be necessary.” France unhappy at the South African referee appearing to replicate red card incident with Wales supporters LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Welsh Bears: Callum Sheedy and Ioan Lloyd in conversation

first_imgRugby World: You guys are from the same area of Cardiff, but when it comes to rugby, what were your very first impressions of each other?Ioan Lloyd: Cal was the big dog at our rugby club – everybody loved Cal! I knew of him anyway and he’s a nice enough guy, so first impression-wise, I was just excited to meet him. We were both at the same club, St Peter’s. He’s obviously a bit older but when he moved to Millfield and started doing well in the Bristol scene, it got back home and we all heard about it.Ioan Lloyd, 19, scores for Bristol Bears (Getty Images)Callum Sheedy: I remember he would have been 17, and we had boys coming in to fill numbers at training but with him you could see he wasn’t the bloke just coming to fill numbers. I remember we did a one-on-one drill, and we thought, ‘Who’s this little kid? Come on then, let’s see what you’ve got.’ And he was stepping boys and we were then thinking, ‘He means business!’At that age it would be easy to come in and go under the radar, tick a few boxes, nod your head. He was still in school but you could see he was going to be special. He played the Singha Sevens while still in school and tore that up, then went full-time the year after. So from the moment he came into Bristol, boys could tell he had a big future.RW: Is the one-on-one stepping something you’ve always worked on?IL: As a kid I was watching people like Shaun Johnson playing rugby league, or a Quade Cooper. Even Benji Marshall – those were the kind of players I would watch highlights of on YouTube. I’d play rugby all the time with my brothers and try to imitate what they were doing. It wasn’t specifically working on footwork, just the game I like to model myself on. Lloyd and Sheedy (pics via Getty Images) This article originally appeared in the March 2021 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. IL: Playing with Cal I get to see how much work he puts into his game. It’s annoying because it doesn’t matter what time I pull up in the morning, it could be half-six in the morning and Cal was there for quarter past six!The Welsh caps recently were great but I see all the work he does and he’s definitely got a lot more caps in him.Test action for Lloyd (Inpho)CS: Well, I see Ioan getting named as a potential bolter for the British & Irish Lions and I don’t see that as stupid.IL: Things like that, it’s really nice to hear from people but I could never, ever see myself like that. Even when someone says that you’re an international, I don’t feel like I actually am. I’ve still got a lot to prove and learn (he missed out on initial Six Nations squad selection).CS: That’s the beauty of Ioan. If he was an arrogant kid, you’d be trying to keep his feet on the ground and giving him little digs, but he’s a very level-headed person, in life. I always want to build him up because I genuinely believe the hype. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS My jersey is framed as well as Johnny Sexton’s, who gave me his. You look at your cap sometimes and pinch yourself.Wales boss Wayne Pivac (Inpho) IL: St Peter’s is literally 200m away from where we lived. We used to choose to play on the street all the time, for some reason! Then going over to St Peter’s every day for kicking was great.On the street, it would usually be two-on-one constant attack, with three of us. Whoever scored stayed in attack. Or my cousin from Merthyr would come down to make it two-on-two and we’d play in-between cars as the touchline – if you hit one, you’d run inside!Yeah, I definitely learnt something from that. It was such a narrow space, if you drew the man and gave the ball, the chances are you’d still get caught by the defender. So in terms of offloading, my brothers are a lot better than me and found new ways to throw the dummy. But it helped me in some way.Sheedy faces Italy (Getty Images)RW: How much work goes into the kick-pass connection between you?CS: When Pat Lam first came into Bristol, he said in attack all you really need is two people: a ball-player and someone on the touchline. Because the defence have to mark you, so you could beat them one-on-one or there’s the kick-pass option, which automatically gives you the width in attack.IL: It’s the sort of thing you practise in the week. Whoever’s starting wing or full-back, or whoever is going to be on the touchline, Cal will connect with them and then you get some practice reps in. We tend to make a point before training, to have a look for it, you know it’s on.The nice thing about playing with Cal is he’s not just got one kick. If the space is there he can put it there. There are lots of conversations on it in the week – Charles Piutau and Luke Morahan are big on it. Pat puts a big emphasis on it, too, before some sessions.RW: How detailed does it get at Bristol?CS: My words probably wouldn’t do it justice – with Pat, Conor McPhillips, John Muldoon with the forwards, and just how in-depth they go. Our analysis team is unbelievable. We’ll look at every single bit of the opposition, and create new phase plays in a week. We have about seven or eight different phase shapes we can go to. Boys need to learn their stuff. Mondays and Tuesdays are more learning days than physical days. IL: To this day it’s such a surreal feeling. It’s something I’ve dreamt of my whole life. I’ve always watched Wales, thinking I’d love to be out there. It came out of nowhere (he made his debut against Georgia) and even now I think, ‘Did it actually happen? What’s going on?’RW: What are your goals now?CS: Every week my goal is to start. One bad game for Bristol and someone else comes in. And we’d love to be in two finals, with Europe and the Premiership. That’s the end goal but there are a lot of stepping stones before then. Don’t play well for your club then you have no chance of international calls.IL: Well Cal starts every week! My goal at the moment is to build up as much game time as possible and to solidify my spot in the team, take it from there.RW: Everyone hates these gushing moments with their mates, but what can you tell us about each other? Bristol Bears Director of Rugby, Pat Lam (Getty Images)RW: What kind of students are you?CS: Ioan’s top of the class, he is!IL: We’re both at the front of the class.RW: Putting an apple on Pat’s desk?CS: That’s Andy Uren who does that!RW: What are the similarities between Pat and Wayne Pivac with Wales?CS: As I’ve only spent a short time with Wayne, it’s hard to get a full impression. But they both coached in Super Rugby, so they’re keen on certain ideas and how the game wants to be played. Obviously, we spend every day with Pat so I guess we know him inside out, but in terms of rugby styles, they’re not a million miles away. Of course, there are differences coaching at club level, you get to spend more time with players.RW: A big moment in your career: what are the memories of your Wales debuts?CS: It was a night I’ll never forget. Unfortunately I couldn’t have the people close to me there, but the night itself was all a blur. I didn’t know if I was going to get on (against Ireland in the Autumn Nations Cup), but when I did I was taken aback by the whole experience. It was one me and my family are very proud of. Welsh Bears: Callum Sheedy and Ioan Lloyd in conversation The Cardiff-born duo are thriving in Bristol. We convinced them to sit still and explain an exciting time. From the March 2021 edition of RW THERE IS an ease with each other as Callum Sheedy and Ioan Lloyd joke about Bristol being the fifth Welsh region and trying to convince Harry Randall to opt for the famous red. Both recent newcomers to Test rugby, fly-half Sheedy, 25, and quicksilver Lloyd, 19, are lighting up the Gallagher Premiership too. It is an exhilarating time for the pair.So we decided to get the exiles to cool their heels and talk us through a range of subjects: their awareness of each other’s games, their rugby upbringings, their aerial link-ups and even their British & Irish Lions chances.Welcome into the minds of two of Wales’ most entertaining youngsters… You need to do your homework. It’s not just hours in the analysis room. You go home and you’re doing analysis on your phone, on our app, and we can just flip from one phase play to another. At half-time Pat might say, “Right, we’ll flip into this phase play.” So I don’t see calls for Ioan playing for the Lions as stupid, I see it as possible. Why not, if he keeps improving? I’ve never seen a young person with a skill-set (like his) – he can pass off both hands, kick off both feet, goal-kick off both feet, kick for touch. I just need to convince him he’s a fantastic full-back so he stays away from playing ten! As a kid, on a Saturday I’d sit in the back room and watch highlights. It’d get me up for a game on Sunday morning.Sheedy holds the European Rugby Challenge Cup (Inpho)CS: Ioan mentioned rugby league players there. Growing up, I’d probably prefer to watch league than union. Ioan is talking about the individual sidesteps, which are obviously unbelievable, but I’m not quite as explosive as him, so I look more at boys who take it square to the line, throw no-look passes, the dummy runners and all that sort of stuff.In union now we’re getting very league with, say, hard runners out the back or phase patterns. League has been doing that for ten, 12 years. League defence has come through and attack has to be one step ahead. I think we’re five or six years behind the likes of the NRL teams.RW: The Lloyd brothers going at it, emulating those guys, is a fun image…last_img read more

Patrick Bell was elected the seventh bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Oregon Dec. 12 at Church of the Redeemer, Pendleton.Kim McClain, president of the diocese’s standing committee, said Bell was one of three finalists from a pool of 16 applicants. A search committee narrowed the field down to three candidates.McClain said, “All of the candidates had Eastern Oregon roots and experience and all were so well qualified. We would have done well with any one of the three.”Bell’s background lends itself to his new position – he is a seventh generation Eastern Washingtonian, hailing from a long farming tradition, and his first Episcopal parish was in Ontario, Oregon, she said.“Fr. Bell understands rural life in the Pacific Northwest. We think he will make a really good bishop,” McClain said.Bell said he was raised Episcopalian and attended Whitworth College, a Presbyterian school in Spokane, Washington. As a young adult, his faith turned toward evangelical Christianity. He received a Master’s of Arts in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. and served as a Pentecostal minister. In time, he said, he returned to the Episcopal Church.“I realized I wasn’t a fundamentalist,” Bell said.Wanting to continue his ministry, Bell did his Anglican studies work at Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas and completed coursework for a doctorate of Ministry from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois.He was ordained priest by Bishop Rustin Kimsey and installed at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Ontario in 1989. He said his experience with different spiritual paths is one of the strengths he brings to his new position.“It broadened my spiritual understanding and my ability to work with Evangelical Christians – I have a deep appreciation for what they believe,” Bell said.He said his vision for the diocese is to reinforce people’s confidence that they are loved.“The diocese is a stunning model to the Church and the world. In a sparse landscape we find the exact opposite in our communities,” Bell said.The bishopric of Eastern Oregon is a half-time position; Bell said he will be in the diocese two weeks a month and maintain his residence in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where he is presently the rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.The diocesan office moved to the campus of Ascension School in Cove from The Dalles in October 2013. Bell said he will keep the offices in Cove.“I really want to have more opportunities bringing the clergy together and Ascension has the space and the housing to do that,” Bell said.Bell said another advantage of keeping the headquarters at Ascension is that the camp and conference center has the technology that facilitates phone and video conferencing – a valuable asset for a diocese that covers three-quarters of the state.Besides the convenience of Ascension’s facilities, Bell said the campus is representative of the Diocese of Eastern Oregon.“If there is a place that becomes the center of the diocese, Ascension School is that. Bishop Kimsey thought we shouldn’t have a cathedral; it draws away from who we are. With the chapel as our “cathedral” it brings us back to our very rich western tradition,” Bell said.Bell will be consecrated April 16, pending the required consents from a majority of bishops with jurisdiction and standing committees of The Episcopal Church. McClain said the site has not yet been determined.For information please contact Eastern Oregon’s diocesan office at 541-568-4514, ext. 1, or email [email protected] Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books House of Bishops, Submit an Event Listing AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group 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 last_img read more
