The 2020 stock market crash sent the prices of UK shares on a downward spiral. Since the start of the year, the FTSE 100 index has fallen by around 24%. Many UK stocks are now trading on dirt-cheap valuations. This is evidenced by rock-bottom P/E ratios and share prices that are well below historical averages.But I think buying cheap UK shares now means you could be well-positioned ahead of a potential stock market recovery.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…Picking the winners from the losersArguably, it has never been more important for investors to separate the winners from the losers. The enormous economic damage caused by the outbreak of Covid-19 will undoubtedly put many businesses under significant pressure.In particular, companies saddled with debt prior to the pandemic will have their work cut out. The disruption to business, and a sustained fall in consumer demand, could cause some firms to continue bleeding cash until they go under.Certain sectors of the economy look to be in big trouble. For example, the future of the travel and tourism industry appears to be uncertain and many companies are in need of government support for survival.That said, despite the bleak economic outlook, not every company will suffer to the same extent. Buying stock in companies that display solid business fundamentals, strong balance sheets and healthy levels of liquidity could deliver attractive returns over the long term. Additionally, many of these stocks look dirt-cheap in my eyes.Cheap UK sharesFor example, shares in Taylor Wimpey trade at a P/E ratio of around 7, indicating significant value, I feel. The company recently announced a phased return to construction and the sale of new homes during lockdown was strong. Prices were even comparable to those in the first quarter of 2020.Likewise, BAE Systems is another top FTSE 100 stock that looks ridiculously cheap to me. Given that the firm saw no material impact on business during the first quarter of 2020, I think the aerospace and defence giant will comfortably come out of the other end of the crisis. What’s more, the lucrative defence sector looks relatively future-proof in my view.Finally, I’m keeping an eye on Imperial Brands Group, whose shares trade at a P/E ratio of 5.9. The company has seen no material impact on trading since the outbreak of Covid-19 and has actually been increasing stocks of core products. The shares look oversold to me in light of a strong performance thus far.Holding for the long termOnce you’ve picked up a few bargains, the benefits of holding for the long run cannot be overstated, especially in light of the current economic climate. In my opinion, investing for the long term is a superior way to build wealth over time, rather than attempts to time the market and make a quick sale.Whether the stock market rebounds or crashes in the near future matters less if you have a long-term horizon. Ultimately, short-term fluctuations in share prices are nothing to worry about if you intend to invest for 10+ years.With that in mind, I’d buy cheap UK shares today and hold them for as long as possible. I expect investors willing to take the plunge to be awarded with attractive returns if these companies can continue to grow earnings and consolidate their market positions post-pandemic.

How to get your binding right – by Phil Price

first_img How to get your binding right – by Phil PriceA scrum forms with eight players binding together and that binding is crucial to the effectiveness of the set-piece. Here Scarlets prop Phil Price gives his top tips on how to get your binding right…Stay tight“Binding is important not just for the props but throughout the whole scrum. It keeps everyone connected and tight. The art of scrummaging is to get eight people to be together and pushing in the same direction as one unit. So good binds are very important, especially when there’s a lot of pressure coming on.”High elbow“For me as a loosehead, the golden rule basically is to have as tight a bind with the hooker as possible. And then with my binding arm on the opposite prop, I want to keep my elbow high because it paints a good picture to the referee.“If the scrum collapses and my elbow is high, it shows I’m not pulling it down. Tightheads tend to bind a bit differently as they like to have more movement, to be able to keep a loosehead out or attack into a hole.”Loose or tight “As a loosehead, I want to be level with my hooker so I’ll bind higher on his back, and that gives our tighthead more room to get his bind and get in the right position. By binding high I get that good connection with the hooker’s hips and shoulders.“But it’s specific to the person and position. Some second-rows like to bind on the shorts, others use the forearm and bicep to connect to the prop in front of them. It takes time to find the bind that suits you.”Specific tactics“At the start of scrum sessions or in individual work-ons, we’ll practise bindings. Potentially we’ll adjust them depending on how our next opponents tend to operate.“In the past I’ve done exercises where a tennis ball has been attached to the opposition prop and you’re working to try to grab on the tennis ball to improve your grip.”For more skills advice from professional players and coaches, look at our Pro Insight section.

Episcopalians to join wide range of weekend events honoring Martin…

first_img Featured Jobs & Calls Tags Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Service work is another common theme of Episcopalians’ plans for honoring King’s calls for justice.The Diocese of Long Island’s Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministries is organizing a day of service work at two locations on Jan. 21. Young people will bag about 15,000 meals for a feeding ministry from 1 to 3 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. Then from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m., they will greet guests and help serve a weekly community meal at Christ Episcopal Church in Babylon.Chattanooga, Tennessee, churches are participating in a local Day of Service on Jan. 21, as well as the city’s march and worship service. St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Liverpool, New York, also has service activities planned for its parishioners. Trinity Episcopal Church in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, will spend the morning Jan. 21 packing breakfast bags and making hot meals for residents confined to their homes.Such service projects coincide with the MLK Day of Service, backed by Congress and coordinated by the Corporation for National and Community Service. The message was to see the federal holiday as a “day on, not a day off.” Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Washington, DC Rector Shreveport, LA Submit an Event Listing Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Submit a Job Listing Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Episcopalians to join wide range of weekend events honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Rector Tampa, FL The Rev. Jarrett Kerbel, rector at Episcopal Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in Philadelphia, took that message a step further in a blog post this week looking ahead to Martin Luther King Jr. Day. He urged Episcopalians to see the holiday as not just a day of service but a day of action.“King was not an advocate for more feeding programs,” Kerbel wrote. “He worked tirelessly for changes to our laws that would create a more just order where feeding programs would not be so necessary. He worked to create the conditions where all people could exercise self-determination and self-sufficiency, for themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods.”St. Martin-in-the-Fields is partnering with the interfaith organization POWER Philadelphia in offering a schedule of activities for the MLK Day of Action, including a rally outside a McDonald’s to call for a minimum wage increase and a “teach-in” to rally behind public policies that will improve education.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Martin Luther King Jr. Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] Dioceses and congregations churchwide are planning events this weekend, from worship services to forums, for Episcopalians and their communities to honor the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.King, whose federal holiday will be celebrated on Jan. 21, was born 90 years ago on Jan. 15, 1929. As a Baptist preacher in Montgomery, Alabama, and Atlanta, Georgia, he was the leading voice and icon of the civil rights movement in the late 1950s and 1960s until his assassination in 1968.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will mark the holiday weekend by participating in a panel discussion during a King event at 3 p.m. Jan. 20 at the Apollo Theater in New York’s Harlem neighborhood. “Unsung Champions of Civil Rights from MLK to Today” will feature a mix of one-on-one interviews and panels focusing on King’s legacy and other civil rights figures. More info and a link to a live stream of the event can be found here.Curry quoted King on “the redemptive power of love” in his much-heralded royal wedding sermon in May. “Dr. King was right,” Curry said. “We must discover love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world.”Daylong activities are planned at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California, on Jan. 21, including a continuous reading, over eight hours, of King’s speeches, sermons and writings. The event, “Let Freedom Ring,” will be held in the church’s nave.The Rev. Mike Kinman, rector at All Saints, said the marathon of readings was an idea he hatched years ago while serving as dean of Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis, Missouri. It stemmed from his personal tradition of reading from a collection of King’s writings and speeches every year on the federal holiday.“We advertised it as a complement of reflection to the King National Day of Service activities taking place in the community. And people came,” Kinman said, recalling the St. Louis event in an online post for All Saints. “They came for a half hour, for two hours, for the entire day. They read and they listened. School groups came after doing service projects and then had conversations about how what they had done and what they heard were related.”This will be All Saints’ third year hosting a similar marathon of King’s words.“I hope you will join me in … coming down for an hour, or two, or even eight and letting the words of this great man wash over you,” Kinman said. “Hear more than just the sound bites, and let your life be set on fire.”Some congregations are planning to join large community celebrations. In St. Petersburg, Florida, the city’s Episcopal churches will participate in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade, said to be that longest-running parade in the country to honor King.In the Diocese of East Tennessee, eight or nine Episcopal parishes and ministries are expected to march in a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Knoxville, with the Episcopal School of Knoxville entering its own float. In Austin, Texas, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church will join a downtown march on Jan. 21, starting at the King statue on the University of Texas’ campus.The Diocese of Georgia is continuing its tradition of participating in an annual parade in Savannah, which typically includes a diocesan float and up to 100 Episcopalians. A post-parade Eucharist will be held at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Savannah.At other churches, the congregations are inviting the public inside for more intimate commemorations.St. Columba’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., will celebrate King’s life and legacy at its two Sunday services Jan. 20 and follow up with the launch of a series of forums, “Instruments of Change: From White Guilt to Empowered Ally.” Church of the Holy Spirit in Lebanon, New Jersey, will host a service at 7 p.m. Jan. 21 that will feature readings from King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” as well as cello and organ music.The series of events hosted by All Saints in Pasadena will include a Diocese of Los Angeles event at 3 p.m. Jan. 20 featuring music by the Episcopal Chorale Society and a speech by Devon Carbado, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Shareholders ask Cisco Systems to account for its activities in repressive countries

first_img WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists News April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en United StatesAmericas Reporters Without Borders today praised all the individual and institutional shareholders who chose to express their concern about Cisco Systems’ ethical failings by voting at an annual shareholders meeting on 15 November in favour of a resolution that would have forced it to produce a report on its activities in repressive countries. NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Follow the news on United States Help by sharing this information June 7, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today praised all the individual and institutional shareholders who chose to express their concern about Cisco Systems’ ethical failings by voting at an annual shareholders meeting on 15 November in favour of a resolution that would have forced it to produce a report on its activities in repressive countries.Twenty-nine percent voted in favour, which is unprecedented for a resolution of this kind. Fifty per cent plus one would have been needed for the resolution to have been adopted. The press freedom organisation urges US investors to present similar resolutions at the annual shareholders meetings of other Internet companies such as Yahoo!.“Just three years ago, few investors in new technologies felt concerned about the ethics of these companies,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But today we see more and more shareholders ready to do something to get companies such as Cisco Systems to respect free expression, whatever the country they are operating in.”“Now US legislators as well as the shareholders and clients of these companies are becoming worried about their ethical lapses,” the organisation added. “It is time that Internet giants such as Cisco Systems and Yahoo! realise the scale of these concerns and overhaul their policies as regards social responsibility.”Entitled “Internet fragmentation report,” the resolution was filed by the investment company Boston Common Asset Management (see the text of the resolution below). The Cisco Systems board of directors asked shareholders to vote against the resolution.Boston Common filed a similar resolution last year that got 11 per cent of the votes. The investment company was inspired by the example of human rights activist Ann Lau, who – as an individual shareholder – submitted resolutions in 2002 and 2003 condemning Cisco Systems’ lapses in China, each time getting less than 3 per cent of the vote.Reporters Without Borders has for several years been urging investment funds to take action in support of online free expression. At the organisation’s initiative, 30 investors signed a statement in 2005 about the moral responsibilities of Internet sector companies (see: http://www.rsf.org/fonds-investissement.php3).Cisco Systems helped build the Chinese Internet in 1998. It is accused of helping the authorities to programme its equipment to allow filtering and online surveillance. Research by journalist Ethan Gutman also revealed the company’s involvement in the sale of very sophisticated communications equipment to the Chinese police.center_img to go further Organisation June 3, 2021 Find out more For more information:- Yahoo! In China- The text of Boston Common’s resolution:Boston Common Asset Management, LLC, 84 State Street, Suite 1000, Boston, Massachusetts 02109, a beneficial owner of 108,266 shares of Cisco common stock, joined by other filers (whose names, addresses and shareholdings will be provided by Cisco promptly upon receipt by Cisco Investor Relations of any oral or written request), have notified us that they intend to present the following proposal at the meeting:Internet fragmentation reportWHEREAS:On February 15, 2006, Cisco Systems, Yahoo, Google and Microsoft testified before the Committee on International Relations of the U.S. House of Representatives about alleged complicity in human rights violations in China;Mark Chandler, General Counsel of Cisco Systems, testified that:“Some countries have chosen to restrict or limit access to information on the Internet based on political considerations…. While many have commented on the activities of the Chinese government in this regard, the issue is, in fact, global. Some Middle Eastern countries block sites critical of their leadership.”“Efforts are underway…to balkanize the Internet. Policies which promote that-even inadvertently-will undermine rather than support the many projects which help users evade censorship and will exacerbate rather than solve the problems we are discussing today.”“The liberating power of the Internet depends on its existence as one global Internet. … Any policies in this area should, we believe, proceed from the realization that its very global nature provides a unique tool for the dissemination of ideas and cultivation of freedoms. We should do nothing to disturb its promise.”Cisco sells its products, including Internet and surveillance technology, primarily through resellers, to government agencies and state-owned entities throughout the world. The U.S. State Department and others have documented how various governments, including several governments with which our Company does business, monitor, censor and jail Internet users, through manipulation of Internet technology.Mr. Chandler testified that the key to the growth of the Internet “has been the standardization of one global network. This has been and remains the core of Cisco’s mission.”In October 1998, Cisco announced it was selected as a key supplier for building China’s nation-wide IP backbone. China’s network has been called “the Great Firewall of China”, and has become synonymous with the censored, closed network which, according to Mr. Chandler, threatens the realization of Cisco’s core mission.The US State Department has also documented concerted efforts to thwart the development of one global Internet in Saudi Arabia, where Cisco recently announced a five year investment of over $265 Million and has over 150 Cisco Partners.Legislation was introduced in the House prohibiting, “business from cooperating with officials of Internet-restricting countries in effecting the political censorship of on-line content.” The proposed legislation currently provides for both fines and jail time (The Global Online Freedom Act of 2006 (H.R. 4780)).RESOLVED:Shareholders request the Board to publish a report to shareholders within six months, at reasonable expense and omitting proprietary information, providing a summarized listing and assessment of concrete steps the company could reasonably take to reduce the likelihood that its business practices might enable or encourage the violation of human rights, including freedom of expression and privacy, or otherwise encourage or enable fragmentation of the Internet.Supporting Statement:The requested study should include a company-wide review of company policies, practices and indicators related to the impact of the company’s activities on fundamental human rights and the development of a fragmented Internet.————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org News News Receive email alerts News November 17, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Shareholders ask Cisco Systems to account for its activities in repressive countries United StatesAmericas last_img read more

Charges dropped against two Kenya Times journalists

first_imgNews to go further April 6, 2020 Find out more Kenyan media group trolled by pro-ruling party activists Receive email alerts Prosecutor Mureithi Mate told a court yesterday that the attorney general has instructed him to “have the case withdrawn” against opposition daily Kenya Times editor Onyango Omollo and one of his reporters, David Ochami, who had been the target of criminal proceedings over an article last year that was considered alarmist.Mate gave no reason for the decision, nor any assurance that the case would not be revived at a later date.The offending article, published on 25 September 2005, referred to the possibility of a coup resulting from President Mwai Kibaki’s decision to hold a referendum on a controversial plan to amend the constitution. The proposed new constitution ended up being rejected in the referendum, held on 21 November.————————-29.09.2005 – Journalist arrested, to be prosecuted for “incitement”Reporters Without Borders today called for the immediate release of David Ochami of the Kenya Times opposition daily and voiced astonishment at the egregious methods used by the Kenyan authorities to arrest him on a charge of “incitement” for writing a column criticising the president.“The authorities have clearly not learned any lessons from their conflicts with the press this year”, the organisation said. “On the one hand, they continue to send police to arrest a journalist as if he were a gangster. On the other, they turn a deaf ear to calls from the media and international press freedom groups for an overhaul of Kenya’s press legislation to bring it into line with the democratic standards advocated by the UN. This obstinacy is incomprehensible.”Posing as a landless peasant, a police officer from the Special Crime Prevention Unit went to the offices of the Kenya Times on 27 September, asked to speak to Ochami and managed to persuade him to step outside where he was arrested by 12 armed policeman. After searching him, they drove him to his home, which they searched for two hours and confiscated several notebooks.Ochami was thereafter interrogated for an hour by the deputy chief of the Criminal Investigation Department, and then by Serious Crimes Unit chief Lilian Kiamba, who indicated he would be prosecuted but gave no date for a trial. Kenya Times editor Chris Odwesso said he is currently being held at a police station in the Nairobi suburb of Kiambu.The Kenya Times is published by the Kenya African National Union (KANU), the former ruling party which is now in opposition.Ochami faces up to five years in prison for alleged “incitement” in a 25 September column headlined “Coups in Africa do not occur out of nothing,” in which he said, “there is no guarantee that a coup or an ouster of a president involves bloodshed or is inherently bad for the country.”Kenya’s political class has become very polarised by a proposed new constitution which the government wants approved in a referendum on 21 November.

Amira Hass

first_img IsraelMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Israel to go further Amira Hass is the only Jewish Israeli journalist to have lived among the Palestinians in Gaza and Ramallah since 1993. She thinks it is as necessary as “covering Britain from London, and France from Paris.” Her reports for the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, which she says “cannot be objective, just as any reporting about wrong-doing cannot be objective,” have won her enemies in all camps. Forced by Hamas to leave Gaza earlier than planned, in 2008, (though permitted to return two months later) she was detained in Israel twice (in 2008 and 2009) for entering Gaza without a permit and staying in an “enemy entity.”In 2013, the Yesha Council (of settlers in “Judea, Samaria and Gaza”) accused her of inciting violence because she had written that Palestinians had the right to resist and had grounds for throwing stones. She was awarded the Reporters Without Borders/FNAC Prize in 2009 for her independent and outspoken journalism and, in particular, the quality of her reporting for Ha’aretz during and immediately after Israel’s Operation Cast Lead offensive against the Gaza Strip in December 2008 and January 2009. Accepting the award, she said: “Being an independent journalist is not that hard in Israel but for this independence to be real and effective, two conditions are needed. A newspaper ready to publish the articles and readers. I was lucky to have a newspaper, Ha’aretz, ready to publish, and the support of my editors, especially the news editor.
