Investing in penny shares is a popular strategy, and Quadrise Fuels (LSE: QFI) certainly fits that category. The QFI share price is just 5p, but it has climbed 220% over the past 12 months. Along the way, it dipped as low as 1.15p at one stage. So what’s the story, and is this a penny share that could make me rich?It’s all about synthetic heavy fuel oil (HFO). My Motley Fool colleague Zaven Boyrazian has explained it. In short, HFO is a fuel derived from oil and used by cargo ships. But it’s not exactly clean — it’s big in greenhouse emissions, and highly toxic. That’s where Quadrise Fuels and its Multiphase Superfine Atomised Residue (MSAR) technology comes in. It’s a way to combine HFO residue with water and produce a non-toxic alternative fuel with reduced carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions.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…That sounds good to me, and the industry seems to like it too. This bioMSAR product, as its called, dominated the company’s interim results released in March. So, we have an effective technology, producing a lower-emissions fuel that could be in heavy demand in the coming years. The QFI share price gains since the formal launch in December do not surprise me.What’s the downside?But it can’t all be roses, can it? Well no, as the financial situation does look risky to me. Many a promising growth company with an exciting new product has tempted me over the years. But the need to keep seeking new finance has diluted out the early investors and left them with little or nothing. Quadrise Fuels is not profitable yet, reporting a £2.3m loss for the six months to December 2020. And that has to put a drag on the QFI share price. There was £1.1m in cash at 31 December. And Quadrise raised £7m from a placing in March. There should be enough to keep the company going until July 2022, but is that long enough to turn to profit? I think it’s very likely that further cash will be needed before we see any profits. Still, Quadrise does have a proven product, which is better than many growth companies at this stage in their development.QFI share price historyI keep coming back to the QFI share price of just 5p. Now, the absolute level really doesn’t matter. The company would be exactly the same with one hundredth of the number of shares priced at 500p. But there’s one rule of thumb I always remember. Penny shares almost never start out that way — they usually start a lot higher and then crash.That’s exactly the story at Quadrise Fuels. Back in 2013, investors valued the shares at more than 50p. We’re looking at a 90% fall in a little over seven years. Still, past performance is not a guide to future performance, and that works both ways. Just because the QFI share price has crashed in the past, that doesn’t mean it won’t keep on rising over the next few years. There are plenty of risks here, and I rarely buy unprofitable growth stocks or penny shares. But this one does tempt me.

La formación de un ministerio para los HBT en El Salvador Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Washington, DC Una mujer enciende velas por las víctimas de crímenes de odio durante un oficio de recordación celebrado el 14 de marzo durante la primera conferencia que se celebra sobre los derechos humanos de homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales en la Universidad de América Central. Foto de Lynette Wilson para ENS[Episcopal News Service – San Salvador, El Salvador] En 2007, mientras trabajaba en la biblioteca y estudiaba psicología en la Universidad de América Central, aquí en San Salvador, Cruz Torres descubrió la Iglesia Episcopal.Estaba catalogando the Anglican Review, un folleto de la Iglesia Anglicana en Guatemala. Mientras lo leía y luego investigaba sobre la Iglesia Episcopal, se enteró de la elección, en 2003 en Nuevo Hampshire, de Gene Robinson, el primer sacerdote abiertamente homosexual en ser electo obispo, así como de la apertura de la Iglesia hacia personas homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales (HBT o LGBT por su sigla en inglés).“Y me pregunté si había una iglesia anglicana aquí”, dijo él durante una reciente entrevista con ENS.Torres terminó por encontrar la parroquia de San Juan Evangelista de la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana de El Salvador y, al cabo de tres domingos, se acercó al Rdo. Luis Serrano, el rector de la iglesia.“Le dije, ‘bien, Padre, yo no quiero mentirle. Quiero decirle la verdad. Soy católico romano. He leído acerca de los derechos de los HBT en la Iglesia Episcopal. Soy gay. Soy cristiano, y quiero vivir mi vida espiritual en un lugar que no me condene’”, contó Torres durante la entrevista en San Juan Evangelista.Serrano respondió: “Nuestras puertas están abiertas”.Eso fue en noviembre de 2007. No mucho después de la llegada de Torres, una pareja de dos hombres encontró la iglesia. Y nuevo vino otro homosexual y luego otro, y finalmente el número ascendió a seis. Martín Barahona, el obispo de El Salvador, sugirió que el grupo ayudara a la diócesis a comenzar un ministerio sobre la diversidad sexual, pero el grupo rehusó, dijo Torres. “Dijimos ‘no, El Salvador no está listo aún”.Dos años más tarde, el grupo se reunía regularmente los sábados por la tarde y había doblado su número.“Éramos 12, y comenzamos a conversar acerca de nuestras experiencias en las [otras] iglesias, y dijimos que tal vez era el momento de llamar e invitar a la gente a enterarse”, dijo Torres. “La mitad de las personas que venían querían cambiar [su orientación sexual], pero esa no era nuestra visión o nuestra misión”.La Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana de El Salvador es una de las cinco iglesias de la Iglesia Anglicana de la Región Central de América, que también incluye Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panamá y Guatemala, que ha creado un pacto con la Iglesia Episcopal. La diversidad del ministerio de El Salvador es la única en su clase entre las iglesias episcopales de la región, puntualizó Torres.(Existen otros dos ministerios de plena inclusión en El Salvador, uno es la Iglesia de la Comunidad Metropolitana y el otro es una iglesia protestante evangélica).Eso no quiere decir que la situación de las personas HBT sea particularmente diferente en El Salvador. Los sectores conservadores, incluidos la Iglesia y los medios de prensa, definen a la homosexualidad como algo malo y como un pecado, y las familias de las personas HBT son llevadas a creer eso, lo cual a veces afecta la manera en que tratan a sus hijos e hijas, dijo Torres.“Sus familias creen eso porque es lo que les han dicho los fanáticos”, señaló él. Las personas HBT deben mostrarles a los miembros de su familia cómo les gustaría que los trataran, añadió. “Eso es la cosa fundamental que hacemos aquí [en el ministerio]; las personas necesitan estar a bien consigo mismas.La misión del grupo no es convertir a los homosexuales en heterosexuales, como es la misión de algunas iglesias, sino más bien ayudar a los miembros a conciliarse con sus sentimientos, explicó Torres. “Dijimos: ‘Dios te ama como eres. Si eres gay, es porque tal es Su voluntad, y tienes una misión en la vida’”.Desde que se creó el Ministerio de la Diversidad Sexual en 2009, un ministerio diocesano, el grupo ha crecido hasta llegar a tener entre 25 y 30 personas —católicos romanos, metodistas, mormones, evangélicos— muchos de los cuales ya han sido recibidos en la Iglesia. Pero apuntó que evangelizar tampoco es la misión del grupo.Evento históricoPese a los avances en derechos humanos, los HBT en El Salvador y a través de la región con frecuencia enfrentan discriminación y violencia, temas que hace poco se abordaron durante el la primera conferencia que se haya celebrado en El Salvador sobre derechos humanos de los HBT, la cual tuvo lugar los días 14 y 15 de marzo en la Universidad de América Central.El grupo de San Juan Evangelista estuvo bien representado en la conferencia auspiciada por Asistencia Legal para la Diversidad Sexual El Salvador y la Fundación SHARE, una organización sin fines de lucro que promueve los derechos humanos y civiles. Más de 1.000 personas asistieron a la conferencia de dos días, entre ellos miembros del Comité sobre Diversidad de Género de la parroquia de San Juan Evangelista de la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana de El Salvador.“Ésta es la primera vez que esto ha sucedido en El Salvador, un lugar donde por ser abiertamente gay, lesbiana o transexual podían matarte”, dijo Olivia Amadón, quien asistió a la conferencia como representante de la Fundación Cristosal, una organización de carácter religioso para el desarrollo comunitario y la promoción de los derechos humanos que tiene sus orígenes en las iglesias Episcopal y Anglicana. “De manera que resulta muy inspirador ver que organizaciones que apoyan los derechos de los HBT se reúnen y enfrentan los problemas”.La conferencia incluyó oradores, paneles y debates que abordaron: lo que significa ser un HBT en El Salvador; la capacitación de la comunidad a través del proceso político; comunidades de fe inclusivas como promotores de los derechos humanos; el uso del derecho internacional para combatir la impunidad y el acceso a la justicia como un derecho humano.(En los últimos años, las Naciones Unidas ha empezado a enmarcar los derechos de los HBT como derechos humanos básicos).Oradores y panelistas, dijo Amadón, se refirieron a los derechos de los HBT como derechos humanos que deben ser protegidos, pero la interrogante sigue siendo: ¿Qué rumbo toma el diálogo de aquí en adelante?”La rama ejecutiva del gobierno de El Salvador ha aprobado un decreto que prohíbe la discriminación en el sector público por motivo de identidad sexual, pero ese decreto no se extiende al sector privado y puede fácilmente ser revocado, y las leyes que protegen a las mujeres y los niños de la violencia no se extienden a las personas HBT, dijo Amadón.Aunque la policía ya está siendo adiestrada para mostrarse sensible [ante estos casos], las mujeres transexuales siguen siendo golpeadas en las calles, dijo Amadón. “La ley no resolverá [el problema de] la discriminación, pero habría menos impunidad cuando se produzcan las violaciones”.La aprobación de una ley es un primer paso; el siguiente es promover la conciencia [social], de manera que disminuyan la homofobia y la discriminación sistémicas, señaló.Es un odio que ha estado presente durante generaciones, dijo Salvador Ramos, de 22 años, en una entrevista en la conferencia.“Se trata de cambiar la psicología de las masas”, afirmó Néstor Urquilla, de 41 años, añadiendo que cuando más hay unos 3.000 episcopales en El Salvador (la población total es de 6 millones).Además de ser la primera conferencia sobre derechos de los HBT en El Salvador, la reunión de marzo resultó importante para esclarecer una situación que debe cambiarse, dijo Torres. Ese cambio no puede venir del gobierno, sino a través de los empeños de la sociedad en la base, añadió.En general, los miembros heterosexuales de la Iglesia Episcopal en El Salvador se han mostrado solidarios con el grupo, pero eso no significa que no haya habido resistencia, dijo Wendy Castillo, de 28 años, que es miembro del grupo de la diversidad.“No todo ha sido color de rosa” afirmó ella, añadiendo que aún queda trabajo por hacer.Cuando Torres y las otras personas de la comunidad HBT comenzaron a asistir a los oficios de San Juan Evangelista, la parroquia se mostró receptiva a su presencia, pero dos o tres familias se fueron, dijo Serrano.Torres, que ahora tiene 30 años, le reveló primero su identidad sexual a un sacerdote católico romano en confesión, cuando tenía 18 años. Aunque, según dijo, el sacerdote no lo rechazó, él no se sintió acogido en la iglesia y estuvo sin hogar espiritual de 2005 a 2007, cuando encontró la Iglesia Episcopal.“Es la voluntad de Dios que esté aquí” dijo Torres. “Yo me acepto y estoy feliz conmigo mismo, desde que encontré ese último pedazo de mi corazón”.“Me sentía feliz de ser gay, pero me quedaba esa inconformidad en el corazón”, concluyó Torres. “Cuando vine aquí pude ser cristiano y ser gay”.—Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service radicada actualmente en San Salvador, El Salvador.Traducción de Vicente Echerri Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Por Lynette WilsonPosted Mar 27, 2013 Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Belleville, IL Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Press Release Service The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Smithfield, NC Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Albany, NY Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Submit an Event Listing Rector Bath, NC This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Featured Events Rector Tampa, FL Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Submit a Job Listing Rector Pittsburgh, PA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Martinsville, VA Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

But men transfer into TCU at a higher rate due to the university’s military program.The TCU class of 2020 set records in other areas as well. It includes the highest percentage of underrepresented minorities. The test scores are among the highest the university has seen in years.“Their behavior and genuine attitudes during orientation and through the school year so far has been stellar,” said Will Benish, orientation leader. “Their attitude coming into the school year was far stronger than the past two classes I have seen enter their first years.”Einstein said that the addition of the TCU/UNT medical school in the fall of 2018 may help the gender ratio in the future.

Last month, the Court had, in an interim order, directed that there shall be no Rath Yatra carried out for this year at Ahmedabad and at any other district in the State of Gujarat. The court had then directed the Government to file affidavit on this issue.Referring to some averments made by the State authorities in the affidavit, the bench said that it is disappointed to see the stand taken by the government in this regard. The court said that the Government has chosen to follow a policy of appeasement and coaxing to convince the religious leaders, Temple authorities and organizers connected with Jagannath Rath Yatra to avoid holding the Rath Yatra processions. It observed:”However, what was disappointing was the passive and yielding approach of the State Government. As a secular body heading the fight against COVID 19 in the state, the Government’s main focus should be protecting the health and wellbeing of the people at all cost, even if it means hurting the religious sentiments of some religious leaders. With infection rates going up and our resources gradually depleting, it is mandatory to focus on health rather than religion .””During a pandemic we do not have time for blandishment. We need action. Strong, pragmatic and robust action.”Policy of appeasement sends out a very wrong message to the publicThe court further observed that the government cannot and should not follow a policy of appeasing the cultural and religious heads. It added:We are treading on thin ice just now. In the absence of an effective vaccine, social distancing has become the principal policy mechanism for suppressing the spread of the virus. This is certainly not the time to shy away from the truth and our responsibilities. For a Government to function effectively during the pandemic it is paramount to have a clear list of priorities in order to make decisions quickly and effectively. Hard choices need to be made, never more so than during a crisis and it is most important to keep those choices or priorities, hyper clear. Providing unclear and contradictory priorities to the people will in turn lead to more trouble Gujarat is a State where we have occasions to celebrate every other weekend. While it is emotional to see these cultural festivals not be celebrated, there is nothing more important than the safety and health of our people. .Gujarat is a State where we have occasions to celebrate every other weekend. While it is emotional to see these cultural festivals not be celebrated, there is nothing more important than the safety and health of our people. The government cannot and should not follow a policy of appeasing the cultural and religious heads. This is not the time to sit, negotiate and persuade. A policy of appeasement sends out a very wrong message to the public. If the government remains nonchalant on the issue of religious gatherings, this will have a serious impact on how seriously the masses take the pandemic. They too may become increasingly relaxed and easy going, while indulging in gatherings that flout the social distancing norms.Despite Having Their Religious Sentiments Hurt, People Correctly Understood The Public Health ConcernsThe Court said that, by avoiding a large gathering of people on the day of the Rath Yatra by passing an interim order, it avoided a major catastrophe that could have completely derailed the State Government’s fight against the COVID19.”The emotional, social and economic cost of the loss of lives of the common men, following a major public gathering would have been devastating. The support and understanding shown by the masses was commendable. Despite having their religious sentiments hurt, most people correctly understood the public health concerns behind the cancellation of the age old Rath Yatra.”While disposing of the petition without issuing any further orders, the Court observed that the decision as to whether the Rath Yatra or any other religious procession should be permitted or not is a matter which predominantly falls within the domain of the executive wing of the State Government. This litigation in the first instance should not have reached to this High Court, the Court said. It added:”We have still a long long way to go before the battle against the COVID19 is won and over. In such critical times, there is no need to consult or discuss anything relating to the religious practices with the religious leaders, etc. at the cost of public health. We emphasize upon the need to prioritize protection of public health over religious expression.”The judgment began with this quote of Theodore Roosevelt: “No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor.”The court also extensively refers to an article written by Law Professors titled: “Forced Closing of Houses of Worship During the Coronavirus: Both Legal and Right”The court concluded the judgment by quoting Justice Rose Bird, the Former Chief Justice of the State of California, U.S.A: “”The judiciary must not take on the coloration of whatever may be popular at the moment. We are guardian of rights, and we have to tell people things they often do not like to hear.”Case Details:Case Title: Hiteshkumar Vittalbhai Chavda v.
