Bitcoin will make you poor! Here’s how I’d invest in 2021 to create passive income for life

The Bitcoin price has surged recently. “Great”, I hear you shout, “I’ll put all my money in that then“. No. Please don’t. Bitcoin is volatile and has surged in value in the past only to then plummet. I think a far more sensible way to get rich and retire early is to invest this year in building a portfolio of shares that can provide you with passive income for life.This means investing in quality. It means putting money into companies that produce something valuable and make profits. Not an alternative currency that has no true regulatory backing.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…How to find quality companiesFinding quality companies obviously isn’t easy – otherwise every investor would make money. But there are ways to do it. For example, look at the company’s sales record – does it have 10 years or more of sales growth? If so, then that’s great. Also, for an investor, it’s ideal to see a high return on capital employed (ROCE) – ideally over 15%The balance sheet is also important when it comes to quality. This is something I’ve learnt over the last decade of investing in companies. To rule out companies that may struggle, look at the current ratio as part of analysing the balance sheet. This essentially shows if current assets, things like stock and cash, cover current liabilities. Those are bills due in the next 12 months. If the liabilities are bigger, then that’s not ideal. It’s also good to look for management teams that are stable, own shares, and over-deliver on promises – the integrity of management is a key qualitative measurement for very successful investors like Lord Lee and Anthony Bolton.There’s more to finding quality companies than just these considerations, but this serves as a starter for 10. As you gain experience you can add more criteria on top to filter down to the very best companies.  How I’d invest in 2021 to create passive income for lifeBearing all this in mind, to create a sustainable and growing passive income, I’m taking action right now. I’ll be looking for companies that match the above criteria. This will likely mean adding to my stakes in Diageo and Reckitt Benckiser. I’ll focus on value shares with quality metrics as these are more long-term investments than growth shares with high price-to-earnings ratios. The latter is good for quick gains. The former is better in my opinion for building a long-term income from investing.I’m very optimistic about 2021. Once the vaccine is rolled out widely enough, conditions should normalise. Strong businesses should be stronger as they gain market share from weaker businesses that didn’t make it through the pandemic.I think for investors, including myself, now is the right time to be investing while there’s still some uncertainty and many shares are still cheap. If you wait too long for greater certainty about what will happen next, you’ll have to pay more for shares. To paraphrase Warren Buffett: it’s best to invest when others are fearful.

Douglas John Fisher ordained as bishop of Western Massachusetts

first_img Rector Shreveport, LA By Deborah Johansen HarrisPosted Dec 3, 2012 Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI The Rt. Rev. Douglas John Fisher[Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts] The Rev. Douglas John Fisher was ordained the ninth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts on Dec. 1 during a ceremony held at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Massachusetts.At the time of his election on June 2, Fisher, 57, was serving as rector of Grace Church in Millbrook, New York.Fisher succeeds the Rt. Rev. Gordon P. Scruton, who has served for the past 16 years as the diocese’s eighth bishop.“This day is not about one person, but about the whole church,” said Fisher. “The ordination and consecration of a bishop is a deeply meaningful time when we all get to renew the faith that is within us and recommit ourselves to following Jesus in his mission of mercy, compassion and hope. It is a time of celebration and inspiration for all God’s people.”Preacher was George Forsythe, president of Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, and a former academic dean at West Point when Fisher was Episcopal chaplain there.“Today is a time of hope in the bright future for God’s work under Doug’s guiding hand,” said Forsythe in his sermon. “And how fitting it is that on the eve of the Advent season, we look to future things to come; to God’s presence in the world in the incarnation of Jesus the Christ and to the celebration of the truth of God’s infinite love and reconciling grace.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori serves as the chief consecrator. More than a dozen Episcopal bishops attended the ceremony, as well as Bishop James E. Hazelwood of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s New England Synod and local civic leaders. Diocesan clergy also processed along with parishioners carrying emblematic banners from their churches.Family members in attendance included Fisher’s wife, the Rev. Elizabeth Fisher, rector of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Amenia, New York, his daughters Caragh and Grace, and son Geoff.Special guests included the Rev. Daniel Sarfo, bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Kumasi in Ghana, the sister diocese to the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts. Sarfo was accompanied by his wife, Mary, and members of his diocese.The bishop’s vestments were designed by Jeff Wunrow of Jeff Wunrow Designs in St. Louis, Missouri. Brenna Hatcher, a friend of the Fisher family, helped with the design. The fabric consists of an abstract configuration of fish, symbolizing the biblical story of the loaves and the fishes that fed 5,000 people — a symbol of God’s abundant gifts to humankind. The design also plays on the bishop’s surname, Fisher. The ordination took place on the first day of Advent in the church calendar and follows the Feast of St. Andrew, the patron saint of fishermen, on Nov. 30.Hand-turned, glazed chalices and patens for use in the Eucharist — one for each parish in the diocese — were created by Jaye Pope of Good Dirt Pottery in Montague, Massachusetts. They are also decorated with the vestment fish pattern and were blessed during the ceremony.Fisher was officially “seated” as bishop at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2 in Christ Church Cathedral in Springfield.Fisher has been rector of Grace Church in Millbrook since September 2000. Prior to that call, he served Holy Innocents Episcopal Church in Highland Falls, New York, and was a chaplain to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point from 1997 to 2000.He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Immaculate Conception Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Episcopal Divinity School.Fisher was ordained a Roman Catholic priest for the Diocese of Rockville Centre in 1980. He left the Roman priesthood and was married in 1984. He was received into the Episcopal Church in June 1997.The Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts has about 16,650 members in 63 congregations.— Deborah Johansen Harris is communications director and missioner for the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts.

Personalize your stream and start following your favorite authors, offices and users.Go to my stream Seattle Leads the Way in Tracking Building Energy Use CopyEnthusiasm for water and energy data collection for commercial and residential buildings has been growing strong across the U.S. in major cities such as Austin, New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco. It’s no surprise to learn that Earth-friendly Seattle is ahead of the game when it comes to tracking its buildings; reports show that the city is receiving data for a whopping 87% of its commercial and multi-residential buildings over 50,000 square feet, which totals to 1,160 individual properties covering over 200 million square feet of the city.But that’s not all. New cities are hopping on the data collection bandwagon, most recently Minneapolis – the first city in the Midwest to adopt rules for energy benchmarking and disclosure. Other cities who already have a green reputation, such as Boston, are upping their game to adopt this beneficial practice in an effort to create even healthier and more prosperous urban conditions. With the President himself expressing support for cutting energy use by constructing more energy efficient buildings at last week’s State of the Union address, water and energy data collection is finally receiving the attention and consideration it deserves.More on tracking building energy use after the break… Architecture 2030, inventor of the 2030 Challenge, an incremental set of energy-reducing targets for building sector professionals, says that the sector is undergoing a dramatic transformation. As of July 2010, 73% of the 30 largest Architecture/Engineering firms in America had adopted their challenge to incorporate into their designs “appropriate planning and passive design strategies, improved material selection, building envelope design, more efficient lighting, equipment and appliances as well as on-site and community-scale renewable energy technologies.” If the building sector continues to lead, Architecture 2030 believes that it can “dramatically reduce U.S. and global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions over the next twenty years and beyond.” Collecting, documenting and displaying the effects of these design decisions in a way that makes them useful for the future is a matter of governmental policy and it’s clear that governments who choose to implement such policies are seeing real results. Cities experiencing disclosure requirements for energy and water are reporting lower energy costs for businesses – one of the desired outcomes – along with the bolstering of market forces and the motivation of owners and tenants to invest in energy efficiency improvements. New York City is uncovering intriguingly less-than-ideal performances of some of its LEED buildings while older buildings seem to be doing less harm than expected – evidence of significant knowledge that would otherwise go undetected. Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston hopes to reveal similar potentials in his own city by filing the Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance with the Boston City Council, another component of the Mayor’s extensive action plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Lessons learned from experienced cities informed the Ordinance, which will similarly require “all large and medium sized buildings to report annual energy use, water use and greenhouse gas emissions tracked through Energy Star Portfolio Manager,” only one of the many services offered by the EPA to educate and organize new leaders in this green endeavor. Other services include help centers, workshops, daily technical assistance and a how-to-guide to facilitate the transition to more earth and energy-friendly buildings.According to Brian Swett, Boston’s Chief of Environment and Energy, “the Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance follows the principal of what gets measured gets managed. Through measurement and transparency, the Ordinance will encourage cost effective building investments in energy and water efficiency that will improve building performance, save money, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” With this quickly-spreading concern for water and energy conservation, it’s only a matter of time before the rest of our nation’s cities follow Seattle’s lead.

Soil moisture levels increased significantly from the previous week, with 64 percent of topsoil moisture reported as adequate or surplus. The average temperature for the week was 53.9 degrees Fahrenheit, 2.7 degrees above normal for Indiana.The amount of rainfall varied from 0.63 to 3.93 inches over the week. The statewide average precipitation was 2.38 inches. There were 4.0 days suitable for fieldwork for the week ending October 25. Heavy rains across Indiana slowed field activity last week.Corn harvest remained in line with the five-year average at 62 percent complete, while soybean harvest stayed slightly ahead of the five-year average at 82 percent complete. The abundant rainfall aided winter wheat emergence, which caught up to the five-year average after falling behind schedule the previous two weeks.Livestock were reported to be in good condition as fall calving wrapped up, and pastures improved marginally due to the rain. Other activities for the week included fall tillage, harvesting late-season specialty crops, and hauling grain.
