Preliminary growth figures released yesterday showed that the economy smashed consensus forecasts of 0.4 per cent to surge 0.8 per cent from July to September. The news prompted numerous City economists to up their growth forecasts for 2010 to around 1.7-1.8 per cent.Above-trend growth coupled with above-target inflation will leave the Bank with little reason to resume asset purchases, strengthening Andrew Sentance’s hawkish stance that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) should instead raise interest rates. Barclays Capital’s Simon Hayes says: “It will be difficult to motivate monetary loosening this month – it’s off the cards for the rest of 2010.”But with PMI surveys trending downwards and the housing market uncertain, the fourth quarter is widely expected to bring a slowdown and renewed calls for QE. IHS Global Insight’s Howard Archer says that it remains “a serious possibility should growth slow markedly over the coming months”.Critics suggest that it is not clear that QE would effectively stimulate the economy, especially with high levels of inflation but chancellor George Osborne has made it clear that he would support a decision by the Bank to complement fiscal cuts with monetary expansion.

The Roblox share price surged 60% in its first day of trading! Should I buy the US stock?

first_imgThe Roblox share price surged 60% in its first day of trading! Should I buy the US stock? The Roblox (NYSE:RBLX) share price exploded on its first day of trading last week. The recently-listed US stock opened for the first time on March 10 at an issue price of $45. The share price quickly soared by more than 60%, reaching as high as $75.That’s quite an impressive level of growth for only 24 hours of trading, in my opinion, even though it has fallen back a little since then. So, should I be adding the stock to my portfolio? To answer that question, let’s take a look at what Roblox does and the challenges that lie before it.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…A gaming giant for younger audiencesRoblox is a video game company. But unlike a typical game developer, the players are the content creators. They can design and share their own mini-games, levels, and puzzles without needing any advanced programming knowledge. I think this is rather ingenious. Let me explain why.Games usually only have a limited amount of content. And so, the player base begins to contract within a relatively short period of time. But by having a continuous stream of new content being created by the players, Roblox extends its playable lifespan at little expense beyond keeping the servers online and tools up to date.In addition, this generates a network effect. As new players join the community they have an enormous library of experiences to enjoy. Some of these new players may try their hand at creating their own mini-game within Roblox. This in turn adds more content that attracts even more players and the cycle repeats itself. In my experience, network effects are powerful business drivers. Therefore I think the Roblox share price may be able to grow substantially in the future. But as with every investment, there are risks to consider.Several risks lie aheadOver the last 16 years since Roblox launched, its player base has grown to over 31 million daily active users. However, the vast majority of these players are children. This exposes the company to additional online legislation that provides greater protection to younger people when interacting online. Any breach of these laws would land the business with substantial fines, as well as significant reputational damage that would likely cause the Roblox share price to suffer.Another risk to consider is how Roblox makes money. The game itself is actually free to play, but players can purchase in-game currency to unlock extra content through micro-transactions. Making the game available for free has undoubtedly helped in growing the player base. However, each additional player increases server costs and not all of these individuals will end up spending any money. Consequently, the firm is currently unprofitable, with no clear guidance as to when that may change. Should I buy Roblox at its current share price?I really like the business model of Roblox, as it has some significant advantages over competing video game developers. However, as an investor, I think the Roblox share price is far too high.The current market capitalisation of the company is just over $38bn. Comparing that to the $589m of revenue generated in the first nine months of 2020 places the P/S ratio at around 64. Personally, I think there are other growth opportunities available right now at far better prices, so I’m not adding the stock to my portfolio today.  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.

Meléndez Rivera, director of Latino/a and Catholic initiatives for the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign, moderated a panel discussion following a showing of “Before God, We Are All Family,” a documentary film that explores the lives of five religious Latino families who learned to look beyond the church’s teachings to accept their LGBT family members. The panel included retired Bishop of New Hampshire Gene Robinson and Bishop of El Salvador Martin Barahona. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – San Salvador, El Salvador] When Bessy Rios’s brother Cruz Torres – then a college student – told her he was gay, she cried for three days.At the time Rios, a lawyer, was a volunteer with a human rights organization looking for missing children displaced by El Salvador’s 12-year civil war, and a colleague said to her: “Your brother is still your brother. The only thing that is different is that you know something today that you didn’t know yesterday.”In hindsight, Rios, who leads “Holding your Hand,” a support group for families of LGBT people that accompanies the Anglican-Episcopal Church of El Salvador’s sexual diversity ministry, grew up defending her brother, first from her father who recognized his son’s femininity and threatened to “shoot him between the eyes” if he was gay; later from bullies on the playground.Still, her brother’s declaration floored her. For 15 years, she said, her brother hid his identity.In El Salvador and the other countries belonging to the Anglican Church in Central America, or IARCA, its Spanish acronym, hiding one’s homosexual identity remains still somewhat common; the LGBT community suffers violence, threats and discrimination, the latter rooted in deeply held Roman Catholic and evangelical Christian teachings.Homophobia, heterosexism and machismo, the cultural attitudes driving the deeply held societal beliefs that fuel hatred and discrimination in El Salvador, are what Rios, human rights organizations, the church’s sexual diversity ministry and other activists are working to change.“I fell in love with the cause,” said Rios, a mother of four, who in addition to working full time advocates for LGBT rights and coordinates “Holding your Hand.”Forming a family support ministry, regardless of Rios’s resolve, however, has been slow-going, she said, because family members still prefer to meet with her one-on-one rather than in groups, since they, too, want to protect their privacy and in some cases family reputations.In early July, Rios shared her story with a group of 12 North Americans studying LGBT rights in El Salvador as part of an LGBT pilgrimage organized by Washington National Cathedral and Foundation Cristosal’s Global School.“This is the first time that Cristosal has gotten involved in LGBT issues,” said Ernesto Zelayandia, coordinator of the Global School, whose curriculum fosters global citizenship. “Our main goal is to foster spaces for dialogue to solve today’s problems.”Formed in 2009, the Anglican-Episcopal Church in El Salvador’s sexual diversity ministry offers a place for LGBT people to be themselves, find community and re-establish a relationship with a loving, rather than a condemning, God.Bishop of El Salvador Martin Barahona was IARCA’s primate in 2003 when the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire elected Gene Robinson, now retired, the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church, an election that sent shockwaves throughout the Anglican Communion.“I was the one bishop in Latin America who attended Gene Robinson’s consecration,” said Barahona, in an interview with ENS in San Salvador.Following Robinson’s consecration, Barahona established pastorally inclusive ministries in three areas: people with physical disabilities, sexual diversity and at-risk youth. (The Anglican-Episcopal Church played a major role in negotiating the truce between El Salvador’s two most notorious gangs and the bishop has been known to minister to gang members.)The sexual diversity ministry became a part of the Rev. Luis Serrano’s congregation at St. John the Evangelist in an area of San Salvador called “Savior of the World,” where a statue of Jesus Christ stands upon planet earth.“We began to open the hearts, the doors of the church, and then the community began to have confidence in the church, and then they began to come,” said Barahona.Since the ministry’s beginning, the bishop emphasized integration into the life of the parish, not the creation of a second, gay congregation.“I explained to them that if you come from a discriminatory environment that you not create another discrimination group of the church,” he said. “You are just members of the church, and at this time I received more than 70 people asking to be Episcopalians.”Whereas U.S. culture favors full inclusion and equal civil rights for gay and lesbian people, generally staying one step ahead of the church, in El Salvador the church is ahead of the culture, said Robinson, during an interview with ENS in San Salvador.“[In the United States] the church in many ways is playing a game of catch up; we’re sort of the last to come along,” said Robinson. “Whereas here in El Salvador the culture is overwhelmingly judgmental and condemnatory toward LGBT people. And it’s the church here who is leading what I believe will become a nationwide effort to expand and include LGBT people in the life of society, but means they are up against much greater odds.“They are literally the mustard seed that promises to flourish and grow into something much bigger and infect the culture with inclusivity … a much more intimidating task in a culture that is still so resistant to including LGBT people in the life of the culture.”Pride parades and celebrations commemorating the Stonewall riots of June 1969, largely seen as the event that sparked the gay and lesbian rights’ movement in the United States, take place worldwide annually on June 28. Four people were murdered following this year’s pride parade in San Salvador, where more than 4,000 people marched in defense of LGBT rights.El Salvador has one of the highest murder rates  in the world and gang violence largely claims the lives of poor, marginalized people. Meanwhile, crimes against members of the LGBT community, particularly those committed against transgender women, the most visible and most vulnerable, typically are committed with impunity. Hate crimes and workplace discrimination force many members of the LGBT community to live in fear and isolation; for some it means not knowing what it truly means to be homosexual.The majority of Christian ministries serving the LGBT community in El Salvador, if even they exist, focus on conversion therapy, trying to change the sexual orientation of gays and lesbians.The conversion movement in El Salvador resonated with Mike Airhart, who spent close to a decade fact-checking and critiquing the U.S. ex-gay movement for two watchdog websites.“In hindsight, I think that – like many people – I spent too much time criticizing the obvious missteps of movement leaders,” said Airhart, who attended the pilgrimage as part of group from Washington National Cathedral. “I think I overlooked, or just didn’t have time to pursue, the more pervasive and less visible work of large churches. So while we were among the first to protest antigay activists’ activities in Uganda in early 2009, some of us missed the day-to-day church teachings that affect 300 million people in Latin America.”Still, despite advances in the United States, same-sex marriage is legal in just 19 states and only on July 21 did President Barack Obama amend an executive order signed in 1967 extending federal workplace protections to gay and transgender persons.“In too many states and in too many workplaces, simply being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender can still be a fire-able offense,” said Obama. “I firmly believe it’s time to address this injustice for every American.”In El Salvador and other Central American countries, gay men and lesbian women, often even if they are out with their friends and family, maintain a straight identity in the workplace, rather than risk discrimination or dismissal.“As a gay man and a Christian born in the United States into tremendous privilege, I would say that I’m elated at the progress we are seeing domestically in our own country, particularly in regard to marriage equality,” said Richard Weinberg, who recently left his position as communications director at Washington National Cathedral to enroll in seminary.Weinberg helped create the cathedral’s LGBT ministry group in 2012. As the LGBT movement has made progress in the U.S., the group has begun to look for ways to support international movements. However, Weinberg said, progress in the United States doesn’t compare with the everyday suffering, indignity and human rights violations experienced by LGBT persons worldwide.“We’re talking about life and death, indignities that as Christians we are all called to respond to and help as well as we can,” said Weinberg.Earlier this year, Weinberg took a sabbatical and volunteered as a missionary in the Episcopal Church of Costa Rica, where he organized a screening of “Before God, We Are All Family.” It was the first time Costa Rica Bishop Héctor Monterrosos and the church began to take steps toward welcoming the LGBT community into the church. (Read a reflection from Weinberg here.)U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador Mari Carmen Aponte and the Canadian and German ambassadors attending the screening of “Before God, We Are All Family, at the National Museum of Anthropology in San Salvador attended by more than 70 people. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSDuring the pilgrimage, Foundation Cristosal and the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign, organized a screening of the film at the National Museum of Anthropology in San Salvador attended by more than 60 people.The documentary explores the lives of five religious Latino families who learned to look beyond the church’s teachings to accept their LGBT family members.The film seeks to address injustice and foster dialogue, said Lisbeth M. Meléndez Rivera, director of Latino/a and Catholic initiatives at the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign.“By collaborating with local faith communities we are able to show a different perspective, one that speaks to an inclusive church, expanding their reach and opening their doors to all versus the exclusive narrative currently in place which pushes marginalized communities further into the wilderness and away from our spiritual/religious homes,” said Meléndez Rivera.“Before God is also a magnificent way in which to show that our families can indeed achieve acceptance both in family and faith around our complexities including our sexual orientation and/or gender identity,” she added.For Rios, accepting her brother’s sexual identity has led to her own activism. In addition to doing pro bono legal work, she writes a blog about feminism and sexual diversity for El Faro, an online investigative news service.In the end, as was Robinson’s experience with his own parents, “love trumps rules”; however, sometimes families need time. During a Q & A discussion following the documentary screening, Robinson urged those present to give their families time to come around. (Read Robinson’s reflection on the visit here.)Time seems to have played a positive role in the other churches of Central America, as well. During the most recent IARCA synod meeting in El Salvador the church’s sexual diversity ministry made a presentation to the bishops from Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama and Costa Rica, the other Central American Anglican and Episcopal churches. The meeting indicated a departure from the prevailing attitudes of 2003, according to those in attendance.The ministry welcomes LGBT Salvadorans from all religious backgrounds, and encourages those who belong to other denominations to share its teachings. During a Saturday meeting, the more than 30 people gathered shared their experience of being gay and lesbian in El Salvador. One man, a longtime member of the group who’d been away for a couple of years, shared his experience as a Roman Catholic deacon, preaching against his own identity. Another talked about his diplomatic career, how he almost married a woman to maintain his cover and advance his career.Over the five years since the ministry began, its members say it hasn’t always been easy, and that at times it’s been hard to draw lesbian women, some of whom feel welcome in their own faith communities and others who identify strongly with feminism and reject the patriarchal nature of the church. Still, for those who have found a home in the ministry, it provides a safe place not only where their spiritual needs can be addressed but also a place where emotional and other health issues can be explored, and where people can come together in search of ways to minimize discrimination and other societal stigmas.The Rev. Deacon Josh Shipman and the Rev. Josefina Beecher offer communion to Eduardo Mazariego during a service at St. Romero Anglican Church. Shipman, a student at Seminary of the Southwest, traveled to El Salvador to study LGBT rights with the help of a Seminary Consultation for Mission, or SCOM, grant. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS“I came here because of a friend, he asked me to come … and I decided to come because I thought this was a place where I could find God and truly be myself. This has been a great opportunity for me to grow up as a person, as a professional and also as a member of a gay community,” said Eduardo Mazariego, a member of the group that meets weekly at St. John the Evangelist Church in San Salvador.The church’s ministry, he said, is important to El Salvador because there are a lot of people in the LGBT community who feel rejected by society and God, and that their sexual orientation is in opposition to the church’s teachings.“This ministry is really important to my country because as I didn’t know a lot of things about being gay, there are a lot of people who don’t know that we are right, we were actually born this way because God wanted, so I think that this ministry is actually a great opportunity for El Salvador to open to the gay people,” said Mazariego. “I was born into a Catholic family and they think that being gay is a sin.”Before becoming part of the group, Mazariego said he thought the concept of sexual orientation was, for him, a choice.“When I was a little boy I used to say that I was wrong because my sexual orientation was against what God wanted,” he said. “I came here looking for hope, for a place where I can talk with people like me and actually when I came here I actually understood who I am and what it means to be gay.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

It has been so inspiring to see the nation come together – from superstar celebrities to young children – to help save the UK’s charities.“The best of Great Britain’s society shines through whenever we have our backs to the wall. People have been in their houses now for over a month and I think many of us feel helpless. While we understand the necessity to stay at home to save the NHS, many of us want to do something additional to help those in greatest need and The 2.6 Challenge allows us to do that, to get active and to help save the UK’s charities. It’s important to say that Sunday 26 April was just the start of the campaign and we want to encourage people that haven’t already taken part to think of a challenge and give it a go.”last_img read more

RIN Prices Are Not the Cause of High Gasoline Prices

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter “They are fighting to maintain the blend wall and are willing to let RIN prices increase as they continue to erect every hurdle possible to maintain the blend wall and their monopoly in the liquid fuels market. “Studies show that ethanol blended into fuel saves domestic consumers about $8 billion per year. Ethanol is not to blame, it is the solution.  None of the recent press, or inflammatory statements from the oil companies mention the price savings that ethanol has generated in savings to the US motorist by ethanol trading at substantial discounts to gasoline. Facebook Twitter “The bottom line is that oil companies are wrong in blaming ethanol for higher gasoline prices when in reality they should be looking in the mirror. Just a few months ago RINS were trading at only a few cents per gallon and we still had record gasoline prices, who was to blame then?” Following the recent rise in the cost of RINs (Renewable Identification Numbers), which are essentially credits for renewable fuel, Tom Buis CEO of Growth Energy refuted charges that ethanol is driving up the cost of gasoline:“RIN prices are not the cause of high gasoline prices. What’s driving the recent record highs are the record profit margins the oil industry is profiting off of, currently at more than $1 per gallon. This is because the oil companies have a near monopoly on the marketplace. They are preventing any alternatives from entering the marketplace. To blame ethanol for higher gasoline prices being too high is blatantly false.“A great deal has been made over the price of the RINS in the past several days as it relates to gasoline price.  There is not a shortage of RINS for 2013.  There is a perceived shortage of RINS for 2014, but interestingly, no focus is being placed on solving that shortage.  The solution is to adopt the higher level ethanol blends such as EPA’s approved E15 for vehicles that are 2001 and newer – comprising approximately 80% of the US vehicle fleet.  As soon as the oil companies adopt the higher blends, plenty of RINS will become readily available. “In fact the reason we’re even having this discussion on rising RIN prices is because the oil companies are flat-out unwilling to blend ethanol and instead are willing to pay a premium specifically not to do their job under the law:  blend renewable fuels.
