Enter Your Email Address Back in March, I wrote a piece where I stated that I thought Lloyds Banking Group (LSE:LLOY) shares could reach 50p. At the time, it was trading about 25% below this level. If we fast-forward to today, the Lloyds share price is currently trading around 48p, so almost at the target level. I will admit that my outlook was for 50p to be hit later this year, and that the move towards this level has come at a quicker pace than I expected. So what does this mean for the bank for the rest of the year?The reasons for the rallyThe movement higher in the Lloyds share price over the past couple of months has been very sharp. This can be put down to a couple of different reasons.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…Firstly, first-quarter results built on the full-year results that were released in February. The full-year results were positive, with the icing on the cake being the resumption of a small dividend. Investors were keen to see whether Q1 results would continue this momentum.In my opinion, it did. Underlying profit came in at £2.07bn, up 58% from Q4 2020. It was also considerably higher than Q1 of 2020, although given the pandemic impact I don’t judge it against this figure. Aside from quarterly results, the rising inflation expectations have also been a benefit to the Lloyds share price. Although this has been a negative for companies with heavy debt loads, it’s been a positive for the bank’s business model. Higher inflation should lead to higher interest rates from the Bank of England. This will filter through to the net interest margin that the bank makes. The higher the interest rates, the larger the difference between the rate the bank charges (lends) and pays (deposits).My outlook for the Lloyds share priceI do think the rally in the Lloyds share price close to 50p has been warranted. A 25% move in three months is a lot, and it’s up 64% over one year. So I do think there will come a point when all the good news is priced in to the stock.I don’t think we’re there yet though. For example, I think there is upside potential surrounding the future dividend payout. More information on this is due at the half-year results. If the outlook is for the bank to resume to a higher payout policy into next year, then I think the Lloyds share price could rally.Another reason for my positive outlook is the indirect benefit the bank will get from further easing of lockdown restrictions. It’ll take time for consumer spending and business investment to properly resume. When it does, Lloyds will undoubtedly benefit as it’ll be the facilitator in these transactions.The main risk to my view is that the above events don’t happen as quickly as I expect. Rates could be kept low for years to come, and the recovery in the economy could take longer as well. In this case, the trend higher in the Lloyds share price could stagnate.Overall, I have enough exposure to banking stocks at the moment, but if I didn’t then I would look to buy Lloyds shares.

Five things we learned from the Heineken Cup Final

first_imgWith Bakkies Botha and Danie Rossouw lurking menacingly on their front line, Toulon were never going to be scared of the wolf-pack. In the end though, the manner in which they muscled out Saracens to triumph 23-6 was mightily impressive. Though eulogies will continue for Wilkinson long past this weekend’s Top 14 final, his post-match interview with Sky’s Alex Payne demonstrated why retirement from playing cannot signal the end of Wilkinson’s wider involvement in rugby. Despite the emotion of the situation, Toulon’s captain was lucid, articulate and insightful with each answer. As a coach, ambassador or even as a pundit, he has so, so much to offer. The whispers are that Boudjellal will continue to employ him. The RFU should do its utmost to intercept that process.Watch highlights from the 2014 Heineken Cup final below!  For all the phenomenal individuals that magnetic lunatic Mourad Boudjellal has assembled, his team actually amounts to more than the sum of its parts. Everyone knows their role and delivers without fuss. The little things – capitalising on Alain Rolland’s iffy ruck interpretations in the Millennium Stadium mud, for instance – added up.It was a cohesive unit of gnarled winners that ousted Mark McCall’s men. But what did we learn from the last Heineken Cup decider? Here are five things.Vulnerability evaporatesKnow-how on high-stakes occasions – seven of Toulon’s starters had featured in a Rugby World Cup final – eventually told in Cardiff. However, the Top 14 superstars seemed strangely consumed by red mist during Saturday’s opening exchanges. There was Craig Burden hollering in the face of fellow South African hooker Schalk Brits like an idiotic NFL linebacker, Delon Armitage showing typical prickle and Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe very lucky to escape a red card after taking Steve Borthwick in the air.Perhaps it was the emotion of Jonny Wilkinson’s pre-game address, but Toulon were ragged. Saracens missed penalties either side of Lobbe’s brain fade and despite a very disciplined beginning, they could not manufacture a decent lead. In fact, Matt Giteau’s sublime try and a Jonny Wilkinson drop-goal put them behind at the break.Saracens looked strong again as the second period began, patiently navigating the trenches and earning a penalty to cut their deficit. But disorganisation from the ensuing restart and failure to clear their lines let their rivals back in. Toulon took hold and Juan Smith’s score was breathtaking – worthy of rubber-stamping any encounter.Voice of experience: Botha and Rossouw made up an all-Springbok second rowDon JuanSteffon Armitage thrived in front of spectator Stuart Lancaster and once again reinforced how he could enhance England’s World Cup effort. Even so, the way he jackaled the man-of-the-match award away from his brilliantly belligerent back-row colleague amounted to daylight robbery.On a largely turgid evening, Smith was dynamic and destructive – on a different plane to anyone else in the contact area. A tally of 16 tackles was the most in the match, but his dominance in those collisions was what defined a formidable display. Saracens carriers were simply bullied. Debilitating injury troubles cruelly snatched two years away from Smith and the medical miracle from Bloemfontein is channeling that hurt into a seriously special career sunset.Forgive Billy When the Sky cameras spun round to Wilkinson at the final whistle, they also captured a disconsolate Billy Vunipola trudging down the tunnel. Toulon’s triumphant fly-half approached the defeated Saracen in a bid to sympathise, but seemed to get ignored. It didn’t look great. In fact, it looked pretty petulant and extremely immature. Suddenly, judging by the sanctimonious faux-outrage on Twitter, the 21 year-old was “disgraceful” and “everything wrong with modern English players”. What garbage.Now this is not an attempt to defend Vunipola’s actions. It is an attempt to defend him as a person, though. This was the biggest domestic game of his fledgling career and, as such, the biggest disappointment. England’s rising star tried manfully – beating eight defenders from 19 carries. Nevertheless, Toulon tacklers crowded him out, causing two knock-ons and a penalty for holding on. Vunipola had every right to feel totally gutted.Storming back to the changing rooms was not ideal, but it was human. Professional athletes are not robots and controlling emotions requires experience. You can be certain that Billy – a hugely humble, considerate young man – sought out Wilkinson later to apologise profusely and explain how frustration got the better of him. Big brother Mako tweeted as much too. He won’t do it ever again. Let’s get off his case. Toulon unravelled Saracens to win the Heineken Cup final 23-6 at the Millennium Stadium, but what did we learn from Saturday’s match? Zero-tolerance for divers, pleaseBryan Habana spent part of his Sunday composing a public confession that he aired on social media, admitting culpability for some second-half play-acting that Ashley Young might have thought excessive. The 95-cap, 53-try Springbok admitted to “letting myself, our opponents and the game down”. Again, the individual should not be overly vilified – especially after expressing such regret. However, though gamesmanship in rugby is nothing new, diving is a very grave issue.Habana’s Hollywood tumble was a cynical attempt to earn Owen Farrell a yellow card. Luckily, Rolland ruled a penalty was sufficient before warning Toulon’s South African wing. But it would have been more fitting to see him reverse the penalty and send Habana to the sin-bin instead. There are enough serious injuries in rugby without fakery manipulating perspectives. The job of a referee is already excruciatingly tough as well. Simulation must be stamped out before it becomes an ugly epidemic.New era: Wilkinson, who scored 13 points v Saracens, will join Toulon’s coaching teamJust the beginning for JonnyIncluding four flawless kicks at goal with his left foot and one dead-eye drop-goal with his right, Wilkinson only had 16 touches of the ball in 77 minutes. That was plenty of time to exhibit his unparalleled ability to execute under pressure. When the big screen showed his face as the clock wound down, the Millennium Stadium swelled in a rather touching ovation. It is an exceptional person that can genuinely compel universal respect.

Ambos grupos temían que si estallaba la violencia entre los protectores del agua —y sus partidarios— y los agentes de la fuerza pública, saldría a relucir una gran cantidad de trauma emocional.La multitud junto al fuego sagrado en el campamento de Oceti Sakowin.

John Floberg, sacerdote a cargo de la Iglesia Episcopal en la parte de Roca Enhiesta [Standing Rock] que cae dentro de Dakota del Norte, le preocupaba el trauma potencial y le pidió al Rdo. canónigo Michael Pipkin, misionero a cargo de la administración misional de la Iglesia Episcopal en Minnesota, que reuniera un equipo de capellanes asistenciales que pudieran servir a ambos lados de la controversia.“En esto consiste el Movimiento de Jesús”, dijo Pipkin, ex capellán de la Armada que prestó servicio en Irak. “Dios está obrando en ambos lados de ese puente, y la Iglesia está llamada a responder a ese sufrimiento humano en ambos lados… Dios obra en ambos lados del puente, y es allí donde debemos de estar, en ambos lados”.“Eso no significa que no logremos tener una opinión”, dijo Pipkin, “pero las opiniones no sanan a la gente. El amor de Dios sana a la gente, y estamos aquí para compartir el amor de Dios”.Pipkin añadió que “cada uno de nuestros capellanes corrió un enorme riesgo al responder a un llamado que ninguno de nosotros conocía, al comienzo de cualquier día, lo que podríamos experimentar, a quiénes podríamos encontrarnos, qué peligros aguardaban a aquellos a los que habíamos venido aquí a atender”.El Rdo. John Floberg posa junto a una bandera de la Iglesia Episcopal que se sumó a las banderas de otras organizaciones y tribus que participan de la protesta contra el Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas. Foto de la página de Facebook de John Floberg.El llamado a los capellanes fue posible, añadió él, “gracias a la obra que John Floberg ha hecho aquí en Roca Enhiesta durante 25 años. Su llamado al clero a venir en noviembre fue una extensión natural de su pasión por esta gente, como lo fue su reconocimiento como veterano (del Servicio de Guardacostas) de la necesidad de traer a los veteranos”.Todos los capellanes estuvieron de acuerdo en que la invitación específica de Floberg y del liderazgo de la tribu sioux de Roca Enhiesta resultó importante a la hora de decidir si ir o no a Dakota del Norte.Mientras los capellanes llegaban provenientes de todas partes del país, emprendieron tareas de adiestramiento y orientación, y se prepararon para lo que podría ser una situación contenciosa. El Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU. que controla las tierras federales donde estaba situado el principal campamento de los protectores del agua, así como por donde corre el río Misurí, había anunciado previamente que los protectores tenían que abandonar el campamento el lunes 5 de diciembre. Los protectores y los veteranos juraron ignorar esa orden, así como cualesquier órdenes subsecuentes de desalojo emitida por las autoridades estatales.Luego, el domingo 4 de diciembre, el Cuerpo de Ingenieros anunció que le negaba el permiso a Energy Transfer Partners, la constructora del oleoducto, a perforar debajo del lago Oahe, una ampliación del río Misurí que queda en la frontera norte de la reserva. Ese anuncio tomó de sorpresa a todos los participantes.“Esto no era lo que yo esperaba”, dijo Edie Love, candidata al ministerio por la [Iglesia] Universalista Unitaria que había venido de Memphis, Tennessee. “Esperaba deambular ofreciendo cuidado pastoral en medio del frío. Pensaba que sería un trabajo emocional en lugar de un trabajo físico, como el de cavar en la nieve para hacer espacio para la tienda de los capellanes a primera hora del domingo”.El amor ayudaba a erigir esa tienda cuando nos enteramos de que había una noticia importante del Cuerpo de Ingenieros.“Lloré de alegría” [dice, refiriéndose al momento] en que supo el anuncio “No habría ningún otro lugar de la tierra en que hubiera preferido estar en esa momento exacto”, agregó. “Fue eléctrico”.El campamento de  Oceti Sakowin en terrenos del Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU., cerca de Cannon Ball, Dakota del Norte. Foto de Lauren R. Stanley.El Muy Rdo. Paul Lebens-Englund, deán de la catedral episcopal de San Marcos [St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral] en Mineápolis, había planeado venir a Roca Enhiesta debido al anuncio de desalojo, para ser capellán y para “ejercer mi privilegio de ser testigo de cualquier cosa que sucediera”. Una vez que Pipkin supo que Lebens-Englund iba a estar allí, le pidió al deán que fuese parte del equipo de capellanes.“Lo mejor de todo”, dijo él, “fue John Floberg contando la historia desde su perspectiva; él sencillamente lloraba. La mejor parte de todo el día fue ver a un tipo que ha andado fielmente con todo esto… fue un regocijo total”.La Rda. Lauren R. Stanley, a la izquierda, presbítera superintendente de la misión episcopal de Rosebud (Oeste) y el Rdo. John Floberg, sacerdote encargado de la misión episcopal de Roca Enhiesta en la parte de Dakota del Norte, poco después del anuncio del Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU. Foto de: Paul Lebens-EnglundLebens-Englund estaba conmovido por la experiencia de la comunidad de Oceti Sakowin. El campamento, dijo, tenía “increíblemente profundos y claros valores esenciales, y ellos [los capellanes] deambulaban todos los días para cerciorarse de que todo el mundo estaba al tanto de que se trataba de amor y de preocupación mutuos, y de frenar el círculo de la violencia… su misión es dar testimonio de una manera alternativa de estar juntos… Eso es la belleza de esto”.El domingo por la tarde, Lewis BrightHeart PureMountain Headrick, un capellán budista soto zen de Colorado, estaba orando por un joven desaparecido en el campamento de Two Spirit, dentro de Oceti Sakowin. Al terminar, Headrick fue a la tienda de los capellanes y supo que la gente se estaba reuniendo junto al fuego sagrado.Mientras se dirigía al lugar, oyó a la gente gritando y chillando. Él se encontró con Floberg, quien le transmitió las palabras de Phyllis Young, uno de los ancianos de Roca Enhiesta, quien dijo, “Hoy hay paz aquí entre nosotros y las Fuerzas Armadas de Estados Unidos. Le perdonamos al gobierno el asesinato de Toro Sentado. Le perdonamos al gobierno el asesinato de Caballo Loco”.Hedrick continuó: “Y entonces dijo, ‘Aquí está la primera oferta  para hacer la paz entre la tribu y el Ejército’, y cuan verdaderamente sorprendente y notable fue tener esta oportunidad de tener paz”.Para la Rda. Katharine Bradtmiller, rectora asociada de la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Evangelista [St. John the Evangelist] en Mineápolis, el llamado a ser un capellán asistencial fue una oportunidad de vivir el Pacto Bautismal. .”Ser capellán”, dijo ella, “te pone en la posición de tener que respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano. Estoy profundamente agradecida por el coraje que lleva a las personas que están en el terreno realizando la difícil tarea de recibir el apoyo de otras personas… Es un privilegio estar en un lugar donde las personas todas están asustadas [pero] se muestran con coraje y trabajan arduamente”.Bradtmiller y los otros capellanes pasaron parte del lunes 5 de diciembre trabajando con veteranos en diversos lugares, tanto en el campamento como en el Casino de los Caballeros de la Pradera  [Prairie Knights], donde algunos veteranos habían ido a tomar parte en una ceremonia de perdón.“La mayor parte de lo que hicimos, tanto afuera en medio de la ventisca, como en las tiendas y de puertas adentro fue escuchar a los veteranos esforzándose por encontrar esa intersección de su propia historia con la historia de los pueblos indígenas que estaban protegiendo esta agua…donde su propio trauma y su valentía y su amor y su sacrificio se encontraban con las historias de trauma y valor y amor y sacrificio de todos los demás de una manera que les permitiera proteger a las personas que necesitaban protección”.Ayudar a que la gente encuentre el punto de encuentro entre su propia experiencia y las de los demás era esencial al llamado de los capellanes, dijo Pipkin. “Reconozco que el sufrimiento es una experiencia que vincula a los seres humanos. Esperaba ser capaz de extender el amor de estas buenas personas no sólo a los protectores del agua, sino a los veteranos, que traen consigo una cantidad considerable de traumas, y la expectativa de que sus traumas se fundirían con el trauma que existe aquí.“También reconozco que los agentes del orden público del otro lado del puente tienen una tarea difícil que realizar, y si bien tenemos ciertos sentimientos respecto a esa tarea, tenemos que reconocer que con, frecuencia, la fuerza pública (sus agentes) experimentan algo en el desempeño de sus deberes. Imagino que estar en el otro extremo de ese puente tiene su propio sentido del trauma”.El 5 de diciembre, cuando fue obvio que el anuncio del Cuerpo [de Ingenieros del Ejército] y la tormenta de nieve lo habían cambiado todo, “resultó evidente que los capellanes tenían una oportunidad de hacer cambios sustanciales en las vidas de las personas. El reto era que los veteranos tenían tipos muy específicos de acción directa (que planeaban llevar a cabo), pero con el cambio de la posición del gobierno, la misión para ellos también cambió considerablemente. Eso significó que había 4.000 veteranos en busca de una nueva misión, y una inmensa tormenta de nieve azotaba el campamento, de manera que había allí una posible mezcla explosiva”, afirmó Pipkin.Los capellanes se dividieron para atender a tantas personas y necesidades como fuera posible. “Me siento realmente orgulloso de cómo los capellanes encontraron sitios donde estar, y escogieron esos sitios estratégicos, tanto en la línea del frente, como en la tienda médica y en el casino… En todos los lugares donde había veteranos, los capellanes estaban en condiciones de brindar una presencia apaciguadora”.“Nuestros capellanes fueron excelentes en captar las situaciones y anticipar donde serían útiles… No creo que podamos asumir el crédito de los resultados pacíficos, pero en verdad fue un privilegio experimentar un campamento donde el propósito era la oración”, afirmó.Staycie Flint, lectora laica de la iglesia episcopal de Todos los Santos [All Saints’] en Chicago, que es respaldada por la Iglesia Episcopal como capellana acreditada, respondió al llamado de los capellanes porque “oyó que había necesidad de ofrecer una atención compleja a personas tienen traumas complejos con nuestros veteranos. Yo esperaba encontrarme compuestos traumas generacionales de las diferentes tribus”.“Los traumas con que tuvimos que enfrentarnos resultaron diferentes” después del anuncio del Cuerpo de Ingenieros, apuntó ella. “Debido a todos los planes cambiaron, se produjo un desconcierto entre los veteranos. Tuve experiencias extraordinarias y honorables entre los veteranos nativos y sentido de transferencia entre los planes… Los veteranos nativos hablaban de cómo su experiencia del servicio militar siempre incluía el ser marginados… de siempre ser invisibles. Y luego de la venida de sus hermanos y hermanas no nativos aquí,  y de que esperaban finalmente ser reconocidos”.Flint dijo, “esta es la brújula moral de nuestro país ahora mismo, porque habla de cómo llamarnos mutuamente a vivir en unidad y amándonos los unos a los otros… La ventaja de tener a personas entrenadas  aquí es que ellas sabían cómo hacerle frente a lo que estaba pasando a otros personas y no quedarse atrapadas en su propia experiencia, de manera que las personas que necesitaran de su atención pudieran disponer de su propia experiencia y que ésta no les fuera usurpada”.A partir de las experiencias del equipo de Roca Enhiesta, Pipkin dijo que “parece ser que existe una oportunidad natural de crear un equipo de capellanes que pueda responder a necesidades de emergencia en toda la nación y más allá, ya sea por causa de desastres naturales, conflictos locales, acciones de protesta, terrorismo, violencia o dondequiera que el sufrimiento humano exija un contacto afectuoso”.“Ya sea a través de una coalición de organizaciones como la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo y los Servicios Luteranos de Socorro y la Respuesta Unitaria al Desastre, ese tipo de cosa podría ser posible”.Pipkin añadió que uno de los fuertes del equipo de capellanes era su carácter multirreligioso, con cristianos de muchas denominaciones “andando junto a budistas, unitarios y otros”. Dijo que 30 de los 32 capellanes que se inscribieron pudieron personarse en Roca Enhiesta (dos se quedaron atrapados por la tormenta). Había 10 episcopales, tres budistas, dos ministros de la Iglesia Unida de Cristo, cinco unitarios, seis ministros de los Discípulos de Cristo y cuatro pastores de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América.Él también le dio las gracias a los obispos episcopales que apoyaron al equipo, “especialmente a Jeff Fisher, obispo sufragáneo de Texas, que aportó generosamente de su fondo discrecional para viajes y equipo. Su generosidad ayudó a hacer exitosa esta capellanía”.– La Rda.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom From ABC NewsBill Paxton, an actor who developed a following for his roles in films that achieved both mainstream and cult success starting in the 1980s, died today at the age of 61.A representative of his family confirmed the death to ABC News.Bill Paxton“It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery,” the statement said. “A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker. Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable. We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their adored husband and father,” the statement read.The native of Fort Worth, Texas, became known as a versatile character actor, appearing in an eclectic group of hit films that include “Weird Science,” “Aliens,” “Apollo 13,” “Titanic,”, “Tombstone”, “Twister,” and “True Lies.”He also won devoted fans for his acting in beloved midnight movies and for his memorable drawl, which at times sounded part Texan and part slacker.Paxton starred as a sadistic vampire in Kathryn Bigelow‘s cult-classic “Near Dark,” and as a quirky bartender in Walter Hill’s “Streets of Fire.”Later in his career, he earned a new generation of fans for his leading performance in the HBO drama “Big Love,” which aired from 2006 to 2011.

The Neil Best eye-gouging incident

first_imgFriday Oct 3, 2008 The Neil Best eye-gouging incident Northampton flanker Neil Best was recently handed an eighteen week ban after he was found guilty of eye-gouging James Haskell when the Northampton Saints played Wasps on the 20th of September.Northampton have lodged an official appeal against the ban, to which a RFU panel will hear the appeal case on this coming Monday, ruling Best out until the final appeal verdict.Upon being cited as making contact with Haskells eye area with his hand, Best will not be allowed to play again until the 28th of January.That rules him out of Irelands three November internationals and seventeen Saints games throughout the Guinness Premiership, EDF Energy Cup, and the European Challenge Cup.Haskell, who was taken to hospital following the match, was found to have swelling and abrasions around his eyes while reportedly also complained that his vision had been affected.RFU disciplinary officer Jeff Blackett, Best said he had acted “recklessly but not deliberately”.Best apologised on to Haskell on the field and it was accepted that he did not intend to cause serious injury, but nevertheless the offence was judged to be towards the top end of the scale of seriousness.Weve found a short clip from The Rugby Club that features the incident. Decide for yourself if you think the severity of the ruling is just, or completely spot on. :: Related Posts :: Best punches Visagie, Croft punches Best ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
