Covid-19 write-downs push Tabcorp to AU$870m FY loss

first_img Covid-19 write-downs push Tabcorp to AU$870m FY loss Australia’s Tabcorp has seen revenue fall 4.8% in its fiscal year ended 30 June, amid disruption caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, with a hefty impairment charge resulting in the operator swinging to a loss for the year.Revenue for the 12 months fell to $5.22bn (£2.86bn/€3.18bn/$3.79bn), with outgoing chief executive David Attenborough saying Covid-19 had been “very challenging for Tabcorp’s people, partners and customers”, and materially affected its FY2020 results.“Covid-19 restrictions meant that hotels, clubs and TAB agencies were closed for significant periods of time during FY20,” he explained. “This has heavily impacted our Wagering & Media, Gaming Services and Keno operations.”The Wagering & Media division saw revenue fall 10.1% year-on-year to $2.08bn, after Covid-19 enforced closures and restrictions across all states and territories from 23 March, and the suspensions of domestic and international sport.During the period the division continued to invest in its digital transformation and substantially completed the integration of UBet, acquired through its deal for Tatts Group.This investment in digital saw turnover for the channel grow 3.8% to $7.1bn, at a time when retail turnover declined 27.9% to $5.4m, marking the first time the digital contribution exceeded that of retail across a full year.Following the end of the fiscal year, the migration of UBet customers to a single digital platform was completed. This provides players with a more attractive portfolio of products and services, including digital in-venue betting, as well as extra tote and fixed odds options, Tabcorp said.Gaming Services also suffered a fall in revenue during the year, dropping 27.3% to $221m. Again, the closure of venues from 23 March hit the division, something further exacerbated by the social distancing protocols in place after reopening.The division also suffered from contract expirations, contract extensions at lower daily rates, reduced project work and a service contract with communications business Telstra that was not renewed in the first half of the year.Tabcorp suspended all fees for venues during the Covid-19 closures, as well as furloughing staff and reducing operating and capital expenses.“We continue to support our venue partners and have waived more than $100m in fees to date,” Attenborough said. “We are focused on ensuring that together we emerge strongly in the post Covid-19 environment.”Efforts to simplify the Gaming Services business’ operating structure and reduced costs have been implemented following an operational review of the division. A strategic review of this division, announced in February this year, was paused because of Covid-19.While Wagering & Media and Gaming Services both struggled during the year, Tabcorp’s largest division, Lotteries & Keno, actually grew 2020 revenue, which rose 1.8% to $2.12bn.This growth, the operator said, reflected its investments in digital and retail channels, as well as an “evolution” of its games portfolio to appeal to more diverse range of customers. This resulted in an additional 400,000 Australians registering to play its lottery games, taking its total customer base for the vertical to 3.7m.Powerball turnover grew 16%, with Set for Life turnover up 21%. While Tabcorp’s lottery retail network, comprising newsagents and convenience stores, continued trading during the Covid-19 lockdown, retail turnover actually fell 4%. This was more than mitigated by growth in digital turnover, with the channel now accounting for 28% of total lottery turnover, up from 23.5% in FY2019.Keno, on the other hand, saw revenue decline 14.3%, due to the shut-down of clubs and hotels in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria during the second half, to 30 June.The division paid $2.01bn in taxes and levies to state and territory governments over the year.After a further $1.44bn in commissions and fees were factored in, Tabcorp’s variable contirbution – revenue minus variable costs – came to $1.80bn, down 9.4%. The business’ operating expenses came to $804m, a 6.7% decline on the prior year, which left earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of $995m, 11.5% below FY2019.Depreciation and amortisation charges rose 14.7% to $399m, which resulted in earnings before interest and tax declining 23.2% to $596m. After interest expenses of $193m, and income taxes totalling $132m, Tabcorp’s net profit before exceptional items came to $271m, within the range of $267m to $273m that it announced earlier this month.However, the business then recorded an $1.09bn goodwill impairment charge. This broke down to a $905m charge for Wagering & Media, then $185m for Gaming Services.Tabcorp recorded a further $51m in additional exceptional items, comprising $19m in asset impairments, then $18m in costs related to the integration of Tatts, as well as $19m paid to Racing Queensland to settle a point of consumption tax dispute. This partially offset by a $5m tax refund.As a result Tabcorp’s net loss for the 12 months to 30 June amounted to $870m.In July, the month following the full year end, revenue was up 2.8%, with Lotteries & Keno’s contribution growing 4.7% and Wagering & Media by 6.8%, though this was reduced by Gaming Services revenue dropping 52.2%.Attenborough warned that uncertainty surrounding the severity and duration of the disruption caused by Covid-19, with the state of Victoria having gone back into lockdown amid a spike in cases.“Our focus is on positioning Tabcorp to emerge strongly in the post Clvid-19 environment,” he explained. “It remains a challenging time, especially for the Victorian community which is in the middle of a difficult Stage 4 lockdown. Our priority is to navigate the pandemic by executing strategies that support our people, partners and customers, while maximising value for our shareholders.”This includes a $600m equity raising drive, to pay down debts and ensure greater financial flexiblity. “With the integration of Tatts substantially complete, we are focused in FY2021 on capturing the value from the digital opportunity across Lotteries, Keno and Wagering and on unlocking the value of a more competitive TAB.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Australia’s Tabcorp has seen revenue fall 4.8% in its fiscal year ended 30 June, amid disruption caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, with a hefty impairment charge resulting in the operator swinging to a loss for the year.

See all posts by Rupert Hargreavescenter_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Even though the FTSE 100 produced one of its best performances on record in 2019, there are a wide range of stocks that still appear to offer value in the market today.However, some of these investments aren’t what they seem. With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that appear to offer value, but could make investors poorer in 2019. Their falling share prices are a reflection of business troubles and not an opportunity to buy.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…VodafoneGlobal telecommunications giant Vodafone (LSE: VOD) looks like an attractive income investment. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 5.5%. Unfortunately, it seems as if this distribution is living on borrowed time.Recent trading updates from the company show it’s struggling in some of its biggest markets. For example, the group’s Indian business recently received a substantial tax demand from the government, which has effectively rendered the division insolvent.At the same time, despite spending tens of billions of pounds to improve its mobile network across Europe, Vodafone’s sales and profits have stagnated.What’s more, the company has a substantial amount of debt, which management is trying to bring down by selling off assets. It also cut the dividend in 2019. As Vodafone has to reinvest in its network continually, there’s no guarantee this cut will be enough.As such, Vodafone’s 5.5% dividend yield looks to be on shaky ground. Despite the group’s efforts to reduce borrowing, the prospect of a dividend cut remains very real, and it seems unlikely the company will be able to instigate a turnaround anytime soon. This suggests the stock’s performance isn’t going to improve.SSEAnother FTSE 100 company investors should avoid at all costs in 2020 is utility supplier SSE (LSE: SSE). This enterprise is facing similar problems to Vodafone.High levels of borrowing are holding the company back, and recent trading updates from the business confirm it’s struggling to grow in an increasingly competitive utilities market. On top of this, regulators are clamping down on utility providers that earn too much profit. Some of the fallout from this clampdown could hit SSE’s profit margins as regulators try and improve customer value for money.Despite management’s efforts to try and reorganise the business, SSE’s net profit is still expected to fall from £1.4bn in its 2019 financial year to £860m for fiscal 2020.This will reduce the company’s dividend cover to around 1.1, according to current projections, even after factoring in an 18% decline in the payout.Analysts have the stock supporting dividend yield of 5.7% for 2020. Since it also trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 16.8, which looks expensive compared to the utility provider’s projected growth rate, it may be sensible to avoid SSE in 2020.With so many headwinds facing the business, it doesn’t look as if growth is going to recover anytime soon. Therefore, it could be best to avoid the stock in 2020.

Foto/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service] La joven mujer que acudió a la iglesia episcopal de San Marcos [St. Mark’s] en Hood River, Oregón, se veía alterada y preguntó si la iglesia le ofrecería la comunión.“Realmente necesitaba algún apoyo ahora mismo y siento como si empezara con eso”, le dijo a la Rda. Anna Carmichael, la rectora de la parroquia.El problema era que, si bien la mujer había asistido a varias iglesias, “nunca había sido formalmente bautizada y, no obstante, esa necesidad de sentirse en comunidad y la necesidad de sentirse apoyada tenía, en su mente, algo que ver también con la comunión”, explicó Carmichael.“Yo sencillamente no podía decirle que no, lo siento no te puedo ofrecer eso”, precisó la rectora de la Diócesis de Oregón Oriental durante una entrevista reciente.Existe una tensión, dijo entre “la teología que respalda la importancia del bautismo”, algo que según ella tiene “una increíble significación para mí” y “la auténtica realidad vivida de que hay personas que necesitan encontrar apoyo en su comunidad”.He ahí un ejemplo del modo de pensar que respalda la propuesta de [la diócesis de] Oregón Oriental de que la Convención General permita a las congregaciones de la Iglesia “invitar a todos al altar para la Santa Comunión, independientemente de edad, denominación o bautismo”. La Resolución C040 de Oregón Oriental allanaría el camino para esta invitación mediante la eliminación del Canon I.17.7, que dice que “ninguna persona no bautizada podrá recibir la Sagrada Comunión en esta Iglesia”.Es una de las dos resoluciones sobre el tema que la Convención tomará en consideración cuando se reúna del 4 al 12 de julio en Indianápolis. La diócesis de Carolina del Norte ha propuesto una revisión a largo plazo del asunto. La Resolución C029 pide que una comisión especial lleve a cabo “un estudio de la teología subyacente en el acceso al Santo Bautismo y la Santa Comunión” y recomienda a la 78ª. Convención General cualquier enmienda al Canon I.17.7 que crea necesaria.Los textos de ambas resoluciones pueden encontrarse aquí. La de Oregón está acompañada por una declaración diocesana que explica su postura al respecto.Esta será la segunda vez en los últimos años que se presenta ante la Convención lo que llaman, de diversa manera, comunión abierta, mesa abierta y comunión de los no bautizados. En 2006, la Convención General ratificó (a través de la Resolución D084) el Canon I.1.17 y pidió al Comité de Teología de la Cámara de Obispos y a la Comisión Permanente sobre Liturgia y Música [SCLM] que presentara a la reunión de la Convención de 2009 “una interpretación pastoral y teológica de la relación entre el Santo Bautismo y la práctica eucarística”.En su informe a la Convención en 2009, la SCLM dijo que había estado en contacto con el comité de los obispos y que “estaba dispuesta a cooperar con ellos en el futuro sobre este importante asunto”.Los obispos reportaron que había un estudio “en marcha”. En junio de 2009, el comité circuló [el documento] “Reflexiones sobre el Santo Bautismo y la Santa Eucaristía: una respuesta a la Resolución D084 de la 75ª. Convención General”, que posteriormente se publicó en Anglican Theological Review. El comité la llamó una “nota promisoria” porque “no suponemos que ésta sea nuestra última palabra en estas materias”.“Es esencial entender las conexiones litúrgicas y doctrinales entre el bautismo y la Eucaristía, especialmente en una Iglesia que ha estado redescubriendo la centralidad del bautismo¨, escribieron los miembros en su conclusión. “Invitamos a la Iglesia [a participar] en esta labor”.Este año, el comité de teología de los obispos informó en el Libro Azul (a partir de la página 51, aquí), que se está “emprendiendo un renovado compromiso con la teología de la Eucaristía”. [Los obispos] advierten lo que llaman “la práctica continua (y controversial) de invitar al no bautizado a recibir la comunión” y sugirieron que se necesitaba “una interpretación renovada y fundamental de la asamblea eucarística y de la celebración eucarística como la reunión por excelencia del pueblo de Dios”.Carmichael dijo que Oregón Oriental comenzó a debatir lo que ella llamó “la cuestión de la práctica versus la teología” durante su convención [diocesana] de 2010 y convino en presentar una resolución a la Convención General.“Para mucha gente aquí en la diócesis ya hemos comenzado a vivir en la práctica, que sé que nos coloca en una situación difícil, pero ésa es la realidad”, y agregó, “no verificamos a la entrada el carné de identidad” y a los desconocidos que se acercan a recibir la comunión no les preguntamos si han sido bautizados”.“Sentimos que ha sido una realidad vivida por nosotros e imaginamos que puede ser cierto en otras diócesis también”, recalcó Carmichael.La Rda. Beth Wickenberg Ely, canóniga para el ministerio regional en Carolina del Norte y presidente de la diputación a la Convención de esa diócesis, se hizo eco del mismo sentimiento. “Nuestra reacción visceral es que no solamente nosotros nos enfrentamos a esto”, dijo ella en una entrevista reciente. “Creemos que es probable que esto sea cierto para todas las diócesis”.“Todos los domingos nos enfrentamos con esto”, agregó. “No es sólo una cosa de Navidad y Pascua. Si algo forma parte de nuestra vida en común, realmente debemos sacarlo a relucir y hablar sobre el asunto”.De ahí, la propuesta de la diócesis de que la Iglesia estudie el fenómeno.El diputado Joe Ferrell, profesor de derecho público en la Universidad de Carolina del Norte en Chapel Hill, defendió la resolución de su diócesis, no porque él se oponga a una comunión abierta, sino porque “tenemos un canon que específicamente lo prohíbe y mi punto de vista siempre ha sido que no escogemos las leyes que obedeceremos, a menos que nos veamos obligados a hacerlo por una superior autoridad moral, y yo no creo que este asunto nos lo imponga ese tipo de autoridad, de manera que debemos hacer algo con el canon”.Ferrell dijo que si él “pudiera agitar mi varita mágica” el canon sería revocado.“Nos quedaríamos con las rúbricas del Libro de Oración, que creo son perfectamente adecuadas”, dijo él en una entrevista. Al recordarle que el Libro de Oración Común guarda silencio sobre el tema, se rió entre dientes y replicó “así es, así es”.Habiéndose criado en la Iglesia Episcopal, Ferrell, de 73 años, se acuerda [de la época] anterior al Libro de Oración Común de 1979, cuando la Eucaristía no era el oficio principal cada domingo y cuando la comunión rara vez formaba parte de bodas y funerales.“Ahora es cosa corriente y, en particular en bodas y funerales, uno tendría graves problemas pastorales si intentara restringir a quien va a ser bienvenido al altar”, dijo. “Y lo tienes en alguna medida los domingos por la mañana”.Su “conclusión” es ésta: “el clérigo que sienta que esto es importante desde un punto de vista pastoral no debería ser puesto en la posición de violar a sabiendas un canon que no podría ser más explícito”.Los cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal sólo contienen una versión del Canon I.17.7 desde 1982, aunque el bautismo como un prerrequisito para la Santa Comunión se arraiga en los orígenes de la Iglesia cristiana primitiva. Al parecer la tradición se enuncia explícitamente en los cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal debido a un acomodo legislativo entre dos resoluciones en conflicto. En la Convención de 1982, reunida en Nueva Orleáns, los diputados y los obispos opusieron dos resoluciones que trataban sobre el Canon titulado “De las regulaciones respecto al laicado” (numerado entonces como Canon 16 del Título I).La Resolución A48 (presentada por la Comisión Permanente sobre Relaciones Ecuménicas y que se puede consultar aquí a partir de la página 60) fue motivada por un mandato de la Convención de 1979 que mostraba cómo la Iglesia podía poner en práctica la declaración ecuménica, que entonces tenía seis años de emitida, “Hacia un reconocimiento mutuo de miembros”, que pedía se entendiera que el bautismo inicie a las personas en la totalidad de la Iglesia cristiana, según el suplemento de 1989 a la versión clásica anotada de la Constitución y Cánones de Edwin White y Jackson Dykman (hay un enlace disponible aquí).La Resolución A78 (presentada por la Comisión Litúrgica Permanente que se puede consultar aquí a partir de la página 154) se basaba más específicamente en la interpretación de que la Iglesia Episcopal ahora consideraba el bautismo como la entrada de uno en la plena vida de la Iglesia. (En muchas partes de la Comunión Anglicana, si no en la mayoría, la confirmación sigue siendo un requisito antes de recibir la comunión).“Las dos resoluciones reflejaban criterios y propósitos que diferían notablemente”, escribieron los autores del suplemento. “El diputado Charles Crump, de Tennessee, percibiendo los problemas inherentes a estas propuestas, así como el vasto tiempo legislativo y el debate que se consumirían en los plenos de cada cámara, redactó la Resolución A048 como un avenimiento”.Los cambios que se reflejan en las tres resoluciones resultaron revolucionarios para muchos. Permitir que personas no confirmadas reciban la comunión era un cambio importante, como era la implicación adjunta de que los niños no tenían que alcanzar una indefinida “edad de discreción” antes de acercarse a la baranda del comulgatorio.La tradición de la edad persiste en algunas familias y en algunas partes de la Iglesia Episcopal, la cual aún se empeña en reescribir sus cánones para adaptarse a la teología bautismal del Libro de Oración Común. Un resumen de parte de ese trabajo hecho por la Comisión Permanente sobre la Formación Cristiana y la Educación de por Vida comienza en la página 153 del Libro Azul de este año.Sin embargo, el requisito del bautismo antes de la Eucaristía se mantiene y se remonta a la Iglesia primitiva. Por ejemplo, la Didajé, un catecismo que data de fines del siglo I o principios del siglo II, le dice a los cristianos “…pero no dejéis a nadie comer o beber de vuestra Eucaristía, a menos que haya sido bautizado en el nombre del Señor…” Y los eruditos sugieren que existen pruebas de fuentes litúrgicas de la Iglesia primitiva, incluida la Tradición Apostólica de Hipólito de Roma, de que los miembros no bautizados de la comunidad cristiana tenían que ausentarse completamente de la liturgia eucarística después de la proclamación de la Palabra.Carmichael se remitiría a una fuente aún más antigua.“Ésa es nuestra fabricación en torno al asunto, porque Jesús nunca dijo que uno tenía que tener el bautismo antes de sentarte a comer con él”, apuntó. “Luego, éste es el desastre que hemos creado y a veces me pregunto si en el gran plan de todas las cosas eso realmente importa. Cuando lleguemos al cielo, ¿a Jesús lo entusiasmará más que hayamos invitado a la gente o que le hayamos dicho a uno que puede venir y a otro que no puede?Wickenberg Ely en Carolina del Norte sitúa al menos parte del problema en el contexto de la cuestión de la diversidad. “Creo que hemos sostenido la conversación acerca de la diversidad ad nauseam, pero no creo que lo hayamos tenido en el contexto de la mesa abierta”, dijo ella en una entrevista. “Para mí se trata de la diversidad, luego, ¿a quiénes vamos a dejar fuera? La respuesta, la respuesta bíblica a eso es: [no hay que dejar fuera] a nadie que quiera venir”.El tema de la mesa abierta es también parte del conflicto de la Iglesia Episcopal “acerca de quiénes somos como Iglesia en el siglo XXI”, agregó.Wickenberg Ely señaló que muchas personas que vienen a la iglesia con frecuencia “buscan ser acogidas dondequiera que van crean lo que crean”. Sin embargo, hay algunas iglesias que dicen “si vas a ser miembro de nuestra comunidad en Cristo, esto implica disciplina y compromiso, de manera que no perteneces tan sólo por virtud de ser hijo de Dios, sino por virtud de estar dispuesto a comprometerte con este modo de ser hijo de Dios”, enfatizó, agregando que ésta es la posición de la Iglesia Católica Romana.La Iglesia Episcopal podría ser “conocida como una Iglesia que recibe a cualquiera en la Mesa del Señor, dispuesta a tomar en cuenta las dudas, dispuesta a dialogar con personas de todas las creencias y de ninguna -una posición generosa como Iglesia”, sugirió.“¿Queremos que nos conozcan como una Iglesia que va hacia el futuro? ¿O queremos que nos conozcan como una Iglesia que tiene algunas fronteras, algunas expectativas [legales y canónicas], también con expectativas [prácticas] y educativas, o queremos estar en el medio?” preguntó ella. “Quiero decir, ¿quiénes vamos a terminar de ser? Ésta es justamente una de las cosas acerca de esta discusión que me ha dado que pensar”.Esas dudas crean aun un contexto mayor para el problema de la comunión. Eliminar el requisito bautismal para participar en la comunión tendría indudablemente grandes implicaciones ecuménicas. En 2008, la Comisión Permanente Interanglicana sobre Relaciones Ecuménicas sostuvo su oposición a una mesa abierta en el reconocimiento -que alguna vez fuera revolucionario- de un bautismo común, haciendo notar que esa aceptación “ha hecho posible las empresas ecuménicas”.En La visión ante nosotros [The Vision Before Us] la comisión advirtió que “un paso hacia la comunión oficial de los no bautizados debilita, amenaza y, en último término, niega los dogmas ecuménicos básicos”. Los miembros también advirtieron que la credibilidad anglicana en el diálogo ecuménico se ve amenazada cuando los textos anglicanos dicen una cosa, pero la práctica sugiere otra.“La práctica de admitir personas no bautizadas a la Eucaristía echa por la borda un siglo de entendimiento y desarrollo ecuménicos”, concluyen.La mujer que acudió a San Marcos en busca de apoyo ha seguido asistiendo a la parroquia regularmente, y Carmichael dijo que ellas dos han sostenido “conversaciones regulares respecto a cómo puede llegar a participar más en la comunidad y eso incluye, cuando esté preparada, la decisión de ser bautizada”.“No es un prerrequisito para poder participar en la vida comunitaria, ya que eso es una decisión adulta acerca de su fe, pero yo estoy dispuesta a acompañarla en el trayecto cuando ella esté dispuesta”.Infórmese más al respectoA continuación una lista escogida de materiales adicionales (además de los apuntados antes) sobre el tema de las personas no bautizadas que reciben la comunión:“Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry (Faith and Order Paper No. 111, the ‘Lima Text’), World Council of Churches Faith and Order commission (1982)[“Bautismo, eucaristía y ministerio (Documento de Fe y Orden No. 111, el llamado ‘Texto de Lima’), Comisión de Fe y Orden del Concejo Mundial de Iglesias (1982]Open, the journal of the Associated Parishes for Liturgy and Music, essays[Open, el diario de Parroquias Asociadas para Liturgia y Música, ensayos]  “Baptism and eucharist: challenges,” Andrew Waldo (2000)   “Baptism and communion,” Stephen Reynolds (2001).Ensayos publicados en Anglican Theological Review  “Baptism, Eucharist, and the Hospitality of Jesus: On the Practice of ‘Open Communion,’” James Farwell (2004)  “In Praise of Open Communion: A Rejoinder to James Farwell,” Kathryn Tanner (2004)  “A Brief Reflection on Kathryn Tanner’s Response to ‘Baptism, Eucharist, and the Hospitality of Jesus,’” James Farwell (2005)  “Opening the Table: The Body of Christ and God’s Prodigal Grace,” Stephen Edmondson (2009).— La Rda.

Executive Council is one of 65 interim bodies during this triennium. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Chaska, Minnesota] One impressive figure keeps coming up as Executive Council meets here this week: 1,200.More than 1,200 volunteers from around the Episcopal Church applied to serve on one of the church’s dozens of interim bodies, including those created by the 79th General Convention in July, to address various issues and tasks over the next three years. That response is a 60 percent increase over the number of applications received for the previous triennium.Members of Executive Council have heralded that number, calling it representative of the energy in the church following its triennial meeting in Austin, Texas.“It indicates that people are interested in serving in a churchwide level,” the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, told Episcopal News Service on Oct. 16 during a break in the day’s proceedings at Oak Creek Hotel & Conference Center. “I think it indicates we’re doing some worthwhile and meaningful things.”Interim body refers to any task force, board or committee created to do work for the church in the interim between the last meeting of General Convention and the next, which will be in 2021 in Baltimore. The types and numbers of interim bodies have fluctuated since 2015, when General Convention sought to dramatically reduce the number of long-term policymaking bodies, known as standing commissions.Much of the work that had been done by the eliminated commissions was assigned to newly created task forces, explained Sally Johnson, chancellor to the president of the House of Deputies. So the number of interim bodies has actually increased this triennium to 65. They are listed here.Some interim bodies are created by church Canon. Executive Council is one such example. General Convention in July created an additional 21 interim bodies by resolution, such as the Task Force on Church Planting and Congregational Redevelopment, the Task Force to Study Sexism and Develop Anti-Sexism Training, and the Advisory Council on Disability and Deaf Access.Even with so many interim bodies, the church won’t have space for all 1,200 volunteers, Jennings said. She estimates there will be 554 appointments this triennium by her office, the presiding bishop’s office or both offices jointly.The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, estimates she and the presiding bishop will make 554 appointments from a list of more than 1,200 volunteers to interim bodies. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceJennings maintains a spreadsheet of all applicants and their criteria, which helps assist church leaders in selecting candidates for seats on interim bodies. Her office fills some interim bodies, while the presiding bishop’s office is responsible for filling others. Some will be filled by vote of Executive Council.“It’s a big undertaking,” Jennings said.The interim bodies typically have about a dozen members each, but some are smaller. The largest, the Task Force on Liturgical and Prayer Book Revision, was created by General Convention Resolution A068 and will have 30 members – 10 bishops, 10 priests or deacons and 10 laypeople.After General Convention, the application process was promoted across the church, and interested Episcopalians were encouraged to identify which of the interim bodies they’d prefer. Jennings was impressed by the quality of the candidates.“There’s a huge number of incredible, gifted people in this church. It’s really great,” she said.This year’s crop of candidates easily topped the 750 or so people who applied in 2015, and Jennings noted that many younger Episcopalians were among the new names on this year’s list.She and other church leaders are in the process of reviewing all the applications, and applicants should find out soon if they have been selected to an interim body and, if so, which one.General Convention did not approve funding to support all 65 interim bodies, so each will face its own set of accommodations and limitations in carrying out business over the next three years. Some will meet electronically, and others will meet in person, as Executive Council is doing for four days this week.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say MexicoAmericas Help by sharing this information May 13, 2021 Find out more March 6, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist killed Organisation April 28, 2021 Find out more MexicoAmericas News News Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state News May 5, 2021 Find out more In a letter to Interior Minister Santiago Creel Miranda, RSF expressed its great concern over the 1 February 2002 assassination of Julio Samuel Morales Ferrón, a journalist from the daily “El Sol de Medio Día” (published in Mexico). “We are calling for an in-depth investigation, so that light is shed on the motive for this crime and the assassins are identified,” stated RSF Secretary-General Robert Ménard. “After the 18 January 2002 assassination of Félix Alonso Fernández García, Julio Samuel Morales Ferrón is the second Mexican journalist to have been killed in the last two weeks,” Ménard lamented. RSF also asked the minister for measures aimed at protecting journalists.According to information collected by RSF, Morales Ferrón was assassinated on 1 February in the offices of the Mexican Radio and Television Association (Asociación Mexicana de Radio y Televisión), of which he was president. The 79-year-old journalist was a columnist for “El Sol de Medio Día” and contributed to a number of other media outlets. Morales Ferrón, whose articles appeared under the byline Severo Mirón (Tough Onlooker), had his throat slit. Investigators have found signs of a struggle at the scene of the crime. Mexico City Prosecutor Bernardo Bátiz has dismissed hypotheses that this was a robbery or a politically motivated crime. The journalist mainly wrote on arts and politics. According to Humberto Hernández, “El Sol de Medio Día” editor, at the time of his death, Morales Ferrón was not carrying out an investigation and his criticisms were not polemic. “We do not know if this was a reprisal for something he wrote. We cannot explain who could have done something like this,” stated Martha, one of the journalist’s daughters.RSF recalls that Fernández García, editor of the weekly “Nueva Opción”, distributed in Tamaulipas State (north-eastern Mexico), was shot to death on 18 January, in the city of Miguel Alemán. Shortly before his death, the journalist had condemned the alleged relationship between the city’s former mayor and drug traffickers. Receive email alertslast_img read more
