When stock markets are crashing and many investors are panicking, it’s wise to keep a cool head. Few are wiser than octogenarian billionaire Warren Buffett. Back in 2001 he said:To refer to a personal taste of mine, I’m going to buy hamburgers the rest of my life. When hamburgers go down in price, we sing the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’ in the Buffett household. When hamburgers go up in price, we weep. For most people, it’s the same with everything in life they will be buying – except stocks. When stocks go down and you can get more for your money, people don’t like them anymore.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…Of course, when stocks – and hamburgers, if you’re partial to them – go down, it’s exactly the time to snap them up. With this in mind, I think FTSE 100 stocks Diageo (LSE: DGE) and Unilever (LSE: ULVR) are terrific buys right now.Double-digit discountsDiageo and Unilever are the kind of quality businesses beloved by Buffett. Indeed, his Berkshire Hathaway investment group owned one of the predecessor companies of Diageo back in the 1990s. More recently, he had a tilt at Unilever, via Berkshire- and 3G Capital-backed Kraft Heinz.Right now, investors can pick up Diageo and Unilever shares at what I reckon are very nice discounts. Diageo’s shares ended yesterday at 2,934p. This is a discount of 10% to their all-time high of 3,265p which were posted last year. Similarly, Unilever’s shares closed at 4,387p, which is a near-18% discount to their high of 5,324p, also posted last year.Near-term outlookNow, it’s certainly true Diageo and Unilever face near-term headwinds, as a result of the coronavirus. Unilever – which said in its results on 30 January “the impact of the coronavirus outbreak is unknown at this time” – has yet to provide an update. However, Diageo released a statement yesterday addressing the expected affect on its business.As things stand, the drinks giant anticipates a hit of less than 5% to sales and operating profit for its financial year ending 30 June. However, this is based only on the impact from Greater China, other Asian countries affected by the outbreak, and travel retail. It also assumes consumption in these areas largely returns to normal by 30 June. Clearly, if the outbreak becomes a pandemic, the impact would be greater than Diageo’s currently modelling.Long-term prospectsWhether the near-term impact on Diageo’s business is mild or severe, I’m confident about the longer term. I’m sure more and more people will be enjoying the company’s well-loved brands – such as Johnnie Walker whisky, Smirnoff vodka and Guinness stout – for generations to come. The same goes for Unilever’s trusted food, personal and home care brands like Hellmann’s, Pond’s, and Domestos.Diageo trades at a 12-month forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 20.9, with a prospective dividend yield of 2.6%. For Unilever the numbers are 18.9 and 3.4%. These valuations are cheap by their respective historical standards. While we may see some downgrades to analysts’ near-term earnings forecasts, I believe the long-term growth prospects of the businesses make their current discount share prices highly attractive. 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.

Tim Schenck.While other Episcopalians may be contemplating whether to give up chocolate or alcohol, or which spiritual discipline to take on for a solemn 40 days, Schenck is busy pondering whether Augustine or Lancelot Andrewes would match up better with Joan of Arc in a saintly sparring match.In 2010, Schenck started Lent Madness, a saint-vs-saint online competition on his blog modeled after college basketball’s March Madness tournament. The idea caught on, and the madness has spread to include celebrity bloggers and, this year, its own website and Facebook fan page and a partnership with Forward Movement.Scott Gunn“I basically started it on a whim. I love sports, and I love Lent, so I thought: Why not combine these two?” said Schenck, rector of St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in Hingham, Massachusetts.Why should basketball fans have all the fun “while we’re sitting around giving up chocolate?” he reasoned. “Lent is not all gloom and doom. What can be more joyful than a season specifically set apart to be closer to God?”Teaming up with Forward Movement’s executive director, the Rev. Scott Gunn, Schenck has created a tournament-like single-elimination bracket of 32 diverse saints. Each day, the website will feature information about two saints in a matchup, and readers will vote for their favorite. Each round of voting will halve the competing saints, from 32 to the Round of the Saintly Sixteen, the Round of the Elate Eight, the Final Four and finally two vying for the coveted Golden Halo.In the first round, voters receive straightforward biographical information about the saints to help them decide which to favor. At the next level, voters read “quotes and quirks” about the Saintly Sixteen. “And then we get into ‘saintly kitsch,’ which is one of my favorites,” Schenck said. “At this point, you figure that almost everybody that’s been participating has learned something about the saints and they’ve kind of figured out which ones they really identified with. Then we can have some real fun with it from there.”Schenck’s favorite bit of kitsch? “Clare of Assisi is the patron saint of television because, when she was too ill to attend services, they appeared on the wall of her cell.”Last year, Schenck enlisted four “celebrity bloggers” to advocate for the saints in the Final Four and Golden Halo rounds. This year, eight contributors from across the Episcopal Church will participate from the beginning, handling most of the research and writing. “I’m serving basically as coach,” Schenck said.Gunn – who is helping with tournament technology and publicity – has embraced Lent Madness from the beginning. The first year, he lobbied hard (and successfully) for George Herbert to win the first Golden Halo, since the title of his blog, Seven Whole Days, comes from a Herbert poem found in the 1982 Hymnal. In 2011, he was an official celebrity blogger. “I tried desperately to get Thomas Beckett to win against C.S. Lewis — and I lost.”“This year, of course, I’m staying scrupulously neutral,” he said.So is contributor Heidi Shott, canon for communications and social justice in the Diocese of Maine — at least in the first round. “Apparently as we get closer in, we can show our true stripes,” she said. “I already have my favorites!”She did question the wisdom of pitting two of her saints against each other in round one. “I don’t know if it’s because I’m the mother of sons, but they assigned me both Monica and Augustine of Hippo, which is just crazy — putting a mother against her son, and vice versa — so I have a great deal of passion around this.”Her other saintly bios chronicle the accomplishments of Emma of Hawaii and Enmegahbowh, whose wife also is “remarkable,” she discovered (“More on her in the subsequent rounds” — if Enmegahbowh gets past Thomas).Shott said she’d found the “madness” educational and fun. “It can teach us a lot about what saintliness means beyond our little hymn we sing once a year. It’s an excellent discipline, and it’s fun.”Noted Schenck, “This is not your grandfather’s Lenten discipline, but it was a way … to make the saints come alive for people. So often we as a church kind of trap and immobilize the saints in stained glass and oil paintings and statuary. This is a way to remind everybody that these were real people.At Forward Movement, Gunn said, “Lent Madness offers us a chance to connect with people with whom we might not otherwise connect.” And to their regular readers, he said, “it’s an opportunity to say: It’s okay to crack a smile in church. The proof of the goodness of something in church isn’t how seriously you take it. It’s actually how much it makes you grow as a person, and Lent Madness is actually a pretty fun way to do that.”Ah, but what about wagering on the outcome?Biblically speaking, the apostles did choose Mathias to replace Judas by drawing lots, Gunn said. “He’s arguably the patron saint of lotteries. But we as the executive committee of Lent Madness don’t condone gambling.”“I don’t think,” Schenck said, “that anybody is getting rich off Lent Madness. I don’t believe that you can call your bookie in Las Vegas and get the line on, say, Thomas Cranmer’s chances versus Augustine’s.”“I know a number of Canterbury Clubs [on college campuses] are participating this year, and they’re all filling out their brackets,” he added. “I don’t think anyone is actually gambling, per se, but they are competing with the caveat that if anyone is actually making any money, of course, that it will go to charity. We recommend Episcopal Relief & Development.”Voters also are on the honor system to cast one ballot per saint, no dirty politicking allowed. “Yes, we have dead people competing, but we don’t want dead people voting,” Schenck said.The voting begins Thursday, Feb. 23.Let the games begin.—Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.En español: bit.ly/zyD2KE Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Tampa, FL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Margaret Smist says: Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Job Listing February 21, 2012 at 4:59 pm THis sounds like fun.

Patty Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Martinsville, VA Featured Events Comments (7) In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Scott Gunn says: Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Associate Rector Columbus, GA Chris Carey says: February 21, 2012 at 7:10 pm I see that your first match up is Joan of Arc v. Lancelot Andrews. Pretty lame. An ignorant (although sympathetic) peasant girl against an articulate and eductated apologist for the protestant church. Although there is a good argument that Joan of Arc’s greatest sin (in the eyes of the Roman Catholic Church) was that she was a Protestant, espousing a direct relationship with God without the assistance of the Church and clergy, her real sins were political, and she was handed over to martyrdom at the hands of the English, having created an independent France. I am an attorney, represtenting poor, incompetent and crazy people, and I often argue that if Joan had lived today we woud have put her on prozac and all of those Frenchman would still have been speaking English today.. She was a nationalist, a hero and a martyr, but putting her up against a scholar is possibly unfair. Note that the Roman Catholic Chuch did not beatize her until 1917, during the First World War, having been suspicious of her Protestant message until then.Lancelot Andrews, however, was a great scholar (Joan propably could not read nor write). He was involved in the great prolemical debates creating our church. He was popular with Elizabeth and James and often preached before them. He was instrumental in the greatnest of Oxford. Although my vote is on Lancelot Andrews, I predict that Joan of Arc will will.Barbara A. Cadwell February 28, 2012 at 12:32 pm And, what’s the difference between this game and sainthood or are they just more of the same?
