3 FTSE 100 shares I think look cheap for a Stocks and Shares ISA right now

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The share price of insurer Aviva (LSE: AV) has been battered so far this year. The shares have fallen by 35%. A decline pretty much in line with one of its nearest rivals, Legal & General.Why all is not lostInvestors may be tempted to think this is a reason not to invest. Surely the shares could fall further? Well yes, they could. But I believe they could also bounce back strongly and as Warren Buffett says, it’s best for an investor to be greedy when others are fearful. With that logic in mind, now could be an ideal time to invest.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…The insurer is in a strong position financially with a solvency ratio as of 13 March of 175% and a net cash position of £2.4bn.Aviva also has a strong brand, which may be helpful at a time like this, alongside the fact that even during a pandemic people need insurance, giving the shares defensive qualities. The banks aside, larger financial companies aren’t cutting their dividends, unlike other sectors. Hopefully, that will continue to be the case as Aviva is a high-yielding share with growth potential.A cheap share in a battered industryThe shares of housebuilder Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) also look too cheap to ignore, I feel. They trade on a P/E of six.The housebuilder has drawn down £550m of its revolving credit facility and as of 23 March, it had £165m in net cash. This is a strong position to be in and should see it through the coming months of uncertainty. That’s especially so as it has culled its dividend and discretionary spending on land. The dividend payments alone, which were due over the next couple of months, will save it £485m.In 2019, the group built 15,719 homes, around a 5% increase on 2018. Its average selling prices were up just a bit at 1%. Clearly though, it is a strong operator in an attractive but cyclical industry. The shares are now too low in my opinion.Looking at the bigger picture, once the crisis passes, housebuilders will benefit from an ongoing issue over the inadequate UK housing supply, I believe.Too cheap to ignoreITV (LSE: ITV) seems to face some pretty big structural problems as far as its business model is concerned. But I feel the company shouldn’t really be worth 40% less than it was just a month ago. I think the sell-off in the shares is overdone.Yes, Amazon and Netflix are on the rise. But that’s hardly a new threat. The new threat is from Covid-19, which is having a significant impact on advertising, ITV’s main source of revenue. But there are reasons for optimism. At the beginning of March, it announced it had finished the year with net revenues up 3% at £3.3bn, driven by growth in the Studios business.The diversification away from broadcast advertising revenues towards a ‘more than TV’ strategy could boost the group in the future.With the shares now trading on a P/E of just 4.5, I think they offer potential for an investor. To me, the shares are too cheap ignore.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 3 FTSE 100 shares I think look cheap for a Stocks and Shares ISA right now Andy Ross owns shares in Legal & General.

Una estrecha franja del Río Grande separa las dos ciudades, cuya población conjunta asciende a más de 2 millones de personas. Desde las montañas Franklin en El Paso la frontera es invisible. Foto de Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – El Paso, Texas] Mientras conducía a lo largo de la autopista Interestatal 25 de Albuquerque en dirección a Las Cruces, Nuevo México, Michael Hunn, el obispo de Río Grande, divisó una valla al lado izquierdo de la carretera , justo al sur de Belén, que casi le hizo chocar su camioneta.“Me quedé tan confundido por el cartel. Decía en grandes letras, dos oraciones: ‘El cielo tiene un muro y estrictas normas migratorias. El infierno tiene fronteras abiertas’”, dijo Hunn, que entonces era obispo electo. “Casi arruino la camioneta… Tuve que desacelerar… ¿Realmente dice eso? Me sentí tan confundido, y aún sigo confundido”.La valla le recordaba a Hunn —que antes de su elección como obispo de Río Grande fue el canónigo del obispo primado Michael Curry para el ministerio dentro de la Iglesia Episcopal— que “para aquellos de nosotros en la Iglesia, parte del quehacer de vincularse a Jesucristo y seguirle siempre es teológica. Y estamos viviendo en una sociedad y en una cultura donde hay cristianos que van regularmente a la iglesia e interpretan su fe de tal manera que pueden comprar una valla anunciadora que diga: ‘El cielo tiene un muro y estrictas normas de inmigración. El infierno tiene fronteras abiertas’.“Si ese sentimiento está ahí, si esa teología está ahí —y yo creo que es real en todos nuestros lugares— luego tendría sentido para nosotros como episcopales, para nosotros como anglicanos, hacer alguna labor teológica”, dijo Hunn, el 18 de noviembre en su sermón durante la eucaristía de clausura de la primera Cumbre de Ministerios de la Frontera que [tuvo lugar] aquí en El Paso.La próxima Cumbre de Ministerios de la Frontera tendrá lugar en Tucson, Arizona, del 14 al 16 de noviembre de 2019.Alrededor de 60 personas asistieron a la cumbre que se celebró del 16 al 18 de noviembre en el [hotel] Marriott de El Paso. Aunque la cumbre se centró en los ministerios de la frontera llevados a cabo por las diócesis que comparten una frontera con México, los asistentes vinieron de tan lejos como Massachusetts. Una vez que un migrante o un solicitante de asilo cruza la frontera de EE.UU., con frecuencia viaja a otros estados en busca de trabajo o para reunirse con su familia. La Diócesis de Río Grande, que abarca el 40 por ciento de la frontera entre EE.UU. y México, auspició la cumbre para reunir a personas dedicadas a un ministerio fronterizo a fin de compartir experiencias y para relacionarse.“Aproximadamente hace un año, comencé a fijarme en los ministerios fronterizos y pregunté que estaba pasando en otras diócesis”, dijo el Rdo. Paul Moore, que preside el Ministerio Fronterizo de la Diócesis de Río Grande y quien organizó la cumbre. La próxima cumbre tendrá lugar del 14 al 16 de noviembre de 2019 en Tucson, Arizona.La cumbre coincidió con caravanas de migrantes que seguían llegando a la frontera de EE.UU. y México. Cientos de migrantes centroamericanos comenzaron a llegar el 14 de noviembre a Tijuana, México, y a otros puertos de entrada. Las caravanas han sido politizadas en Estados Unidos y en sus países de origen en Centro América, Guatemala, El Salvador y Honduras, donde uno de los principales móviles de la migración y de los desplazamientos forzosos por causa de la violencia, con frecuencia se niega. Aquí en Estados Unidos, el presidente Donald Trump ha definido a los migrantes económicos y solicitantes de asilo como un “asalto a nuestro país” y su administración ha desplegado 8.000 soldados en la frontera. El Presidente ha prometido negar peticiones de asilo a los migrantes que intenten entrar ilegalmente en Estados Unidos, es decir no a través de uno de los puntos de entrada designados como tales.Sin embargo, como bien lo saben las personas como Moore, al vivir junto a la frontera, como él lo ha hecho durante más de 25 años, uno puede sentirse a horcajadas sobre dos culturas, y los cruces fronterizos, ya para ir de compras o a la escuela, en busca de atención médica o de trabajo, o para reunirse con la familia, tienen lugar a diario. De hecho, antes de 1996, la gente cruzaba la frontera fácilmente para trabajar y regresaba a su hogar con su familia. Pero cuando el entonces presidente Bill Clinton firmó la Reforma de la Inmigración Ilegal y la Ley de Responsabilidad del Inmigrante, los cruces se hicieron demasiado peligrosos y la gente comenzó a quedarse en Estados Unidos.La ley, dijo Moore, “creó una población permanente”, en algunos casos, separando a las familias, mientras la gente se quedaba en Estados Unidos a fin de trabajar y enviarles dinero para sostenerlos.Durante los últimos dos años, Moore, que también presta servicio como rector de la iglesia del Buen Pastor [Church of the Good Shepherd] en Silver City, Nuevo México, ha celebrado la eucaristía el domingo más cercano al Día de la Madre en México, el 10 de mayo, en medio del Río Grande, que separa a EE.UU. y México, cerca de Lajitas, Texas. La eucaristía es parte de un evento anual que congrega a personas y reúne brevemente a familias de ambos lados de la frontera.La eucaristía es uno de los muchos ministerios episcopales-anglicanos que tienen lugar a lo largo de la frontera.El 17 de noviembre, representantes de las diócesis del Norte de México, de Texas Occidental, de Arizona,  de San Diego, de México Occidental y de Río Grande hicieron presentaciones. En McCallen, Texas, el Rdo. Rod Clark, vicario de San Pedro y San Pablo [St. Peter and St. Paul] en la vecina Mission, ofreció un ‘martes de tacos’para alimentar a los hambrientos; él también organiza inmersiones para personas interesadas en aprender a vivir en la frontera; y proporciona acercamientos con los agentes de la patrulla fronteriza, que con frecuencia tienen un trabajo difícil e ingrato y que, a veces, puede ser malinterpretado.La Diócesis de Texas Occidental ha dirigido durante décadas Fronteras Unidas, un [programa] que ofrece educción continua a clérigos de ambos lados de la frontera y proporciona préstamos para microempresas a mujeres en el sur de México.En Nogales, México, el Rdo. Rodger Babnew, Jr., diácono que presta servicio en la iglesia episcopal de San Andrés [St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church] en la Diócesis de Arizona, junto con un colega del Sínodo del Gran Cañón de la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América, dirige un sistema de albergues de cinco instalaciones y capacidad para 780 personas. Desde que las caravanas empezaron a llegar, de 18 a 22 familias han estado saliendo diariamente del albergue para solicitar asilo en la frontera, mientras hace dos semanas, veían salir del albergue de tres a cinco por semana.En San Diego, California, fronteriza con Tijuana, México, el puerto de entrada más concurrido, donde los agentes de Inmigración y Aduanas han estado liberando diariamente de 75 a 100 solicitantes de asilo a quienes dejan sin ayuda en la estación de autobuses, los episcopales han estado supliendo paquetes con útiles de aseo y otros artículos esenciales, y han llevado una ducha de emergencia portátil.En Tucson, han estado sirviendo voluntariamente en Casa Alitas, un albergue de corto plazo, que ofrece a migrantes y solicitantes de asilo un lugar para estar antes de abordar autobuses y aviones para reunirse con familiares en otras partes del país mientras esperan su juicio de inmigración.Estas son sólo una muestra de los permanentes ministerios episcopales que han estado ocupados a lo largo de la frontera durante años. Dada la cobertura que los medios de prensa le han dedicado a la caravana, puede resultar fácil olvidar que varios miles de personas llegan dodos los días a la frontera de EE.UU. En 2017, un promedio de 850 personas eran arrestadas intentando cruzar ilegalmente la frontera, sin embargo, esa cifra es bastante menor que los 1.983 de 2007, según el Servicio de Aduanas y Protección Fronteriza de EE.UU.Por ejemplo, cientos de personas salieron de El Salvador el 31 de octubre en tres diferentes caravanas, pero como el obispo David Alvarado de El Salvador dijo durante una presentación el 18 de noviembre sobre las causas fundamentales de la migración, entre 200 y 300 personas se van diariamente de El Salvador, uno de los países más violentos del mundo.A través del Triángulo Norte de América Central, una región que incluye El Salvador, Guatemala y Honduras, más de 700.000 personas han sido desplazadas forzosamente por la violencia. No obstante, este es un fenómeno global que afecta a 68,5 millones de personas, una cifra récord, en todo el mundo.La Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal con sede en Washington, D.C., compiló Una respuesta fiel a la caravana: cinco cosas a saberEntre presentaciones diocesanas, los talleres de la cumbre se centraron en la labor social, las leyes de inmigración, la lucha contra el racismo así como la defensa social y la participación de la Iglesia Episcopal respecto a la inmigración, la migración y los refugiados en el ámbito federal.“La política oficial de la iglesia sobre la inmigración se remonta a las resoluciones de la década del 30 [del pasado siglo] que piden la atenuación de las políticas migratorias restrictivas y racialmente discriminatorias, y luego, a través del siglo XX, instando a las parroquias a participar activamente en el auspicio de reasentamiento de refugiados y en las protecciones de los derechos civiles para inmigrantes indocumentados”, explicó Lacy Broemel, analista sobre refugiados y política de inmigración de la Iglesia Episcopal.Broemel opera desde la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal que tiene su sede en Washington, D.C. y la cual representa las políticas prioritarias de la Iglesia —tal como las determinan principalmente las resoluciones de la Convención General y del Consejo Ejecutivo— ante el gobierno de EE.UU.  Las resoluciones, explicó ella, se centran en varios temas, incluida la unidad de la familia: impugnando la discriminación y el racismo inherentes en muchas políticas restrictivas de inmigración; ofreciendo soluciones normativas y estables a largo plazo para inmigrantes mediante una vía conducente a la ciudadanía; protegiendo los derechos humanos y el debido proceso; ofreciendo protecciones a los refugiados; motivando a los refugiados e inmigrantes LGBTQ y abordando las causas raigales de la migración mediante la promoción de la paz y el desarrollo.“La Iglesia reconoce que EE.UU. tiene legítimas necesidades de seguridad, pero podemos ser a un tiempo compasivos y sensibles. La Iglesia reconoce que los inmigrantes y los refugiados aportan dones que enriquecen a nuestra Iglesia y a nuestra nación”, dijo Broemel. “Y es importante destacar que la Iglesia Episcopal no sólo camina junto a los refugiados e inmigrantes a través de estas políticas oficiales, sino que somos una Iglesia compuesta de refugiados e inmigrantes. Los “soñadores” [dreamers], refugiados y otros inmigrantes son parte de la labor de la Iglesia en el ministerio, la defensa social y el compromiso con todos los inmigrantes”.Durante su sermón en la clausura de la cumbre, Hunn señaló que en el principio con Adán y Eva, “prácticamente lo primero que le sucedió a la humanidad es que fuimos desplazados”. Luego señaló los ejemplos de Caín y Abel, Abraham y Sara, Moisés, María, José y Jesús, todos los cuales se vieron forzados a huir, exiliados o convertidos en refugiados. Hunn pareció hacerse eco de las palabras de la ex obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, que ahora es obispa auxiliar en la Diócesis de San Diego, y quien pronunció el discurso de apertura el 16 de noviembre.“La narrativa bíblica nos lleva de la creación cósmica, incluida la humanidad, a terrícolas plantados en un huerto por una temporada”, dijo Jefferts Schori. “Su anhelo de conocimiento los induce a una eterna búsqueda de hogar; nosotros, sus herederos, aún estamos buscando. Dios saca a Abram y Sarai de Harán en busca de una patria nueva. Ellos llegan a Canaán y siguen desplazándose, hasta Egipto, para después volver. Siempre hay conflictos respecto a quién posee qué y que tierra pertenece a quién.“No obstante, nuestros antepasados comenzaron a contar nuestra historia como la búsqueda de un hogar en Dios, a lo largo de una calzada recta a través del desierto, un camino de justicia y de paz. Esto se trata de algo más que una parcela de tierra; se trata de abrirles la mano a tus prójimos, ya sea que los ames, los toleres o les temas. Los profetas comenzaron a desafiarnos acerca de nuestros prójimos en todas partes, no sólo entre nuestros parientes tribales. Aprendimos  que estamos hechos para amar a los extranjeros, a las viudas y a los huérfanos y a los indigentes, y a los problemáticos. Empecemos a soñar con el Reino de Dios, y con el gobierno que traiga justicia y paz en todas partes, y con un hogar donde todos puedan regocijarse, dar gracias y vivir en armonía y en abundancia”.-Lynette Wilson es reportera y jefa de redacción de Episcopal News Service.

Call for British authorities to pursue investigation into Fred Nérac’s disappearance

first_img IraqMiddle East – North Africa IraqMiddle East – North Africa December 28, 2020 Find out more Organisation News New information from the British investigation into the disappearance of ITN employees Fred Nérac and Hussein Osman indicates that Osman was killed on 22 March in Iraq. The British military police is urged to carrying on its investigation into Nérac’s fate. RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan News Reporters Without Borders today hailed the “remarkable work” of the British military police in locating part of the remains of Hussein Osman, a Lebanese interpreter working for the British television news company ITN who went missing in Iraq on 22 March 2003. But the organisation regretted that the British authorities, after a year of investigations, are still unable to provide any information about the fate of French cameraman Fred Nérac, who disappeared at the same time as Osman.Announcing yesterday that DNA tests had identified remains found in Iraq as those of Osman, ITN said the finding confirmed an Iraqi account that Nérac and Osman, who were travelling in the same vehicle, were detained and put in an Iraqi military pickup. The new information suggests that Osman was probably killed in the same fighting between US and Iraqi forces that also caused the death of British reporter Terry Lloyd, who was leading the ITN crew.Reporters Without Borders said it encouraged the British defence ministry “to use the same resolve and professionalism in pursuing this extensive investigation in order to also establish the truth about the fate of Fred Nérac, who is still missing.”The organisation added: “We call on the French government to provide all necessary assistance to the British authorities, and we call on the US government to keep its promises to help clear up this distressing case. Such a commitment was reiterated just two weeks ago by President George W. Bush.”During a working dinner in France on 5 June, President Bush assured French President Jacques Chirac of US “cooperation” in establishing exactly what happened.BackgroundA four-member ITN crew seeking to cover the war in Iraq in an independent fashion set off in two vehicles on 22 March 2003 from Kuwait toward Basra in southern Iraq. On the way, the crew ran into a group of Iraqis and decided to turn back. Those in the second vehicle, Nérac and Osman, were probably stopped by the Iraqis, pulled from their vehicle, and put in an Iraqi pickup which had a machine-gun installed in the back.They were all then caught in the crossfire between Iraqi forces and a US marine unit. Lloyd, 51, who was in the first vehicle, was killed by gunfire coming from both sides, while Belgian cameraman Daniel Demoustier was wounded. Nérac and Osman were reported missing. While Osman’s remains have now been located. Nérac’s fate is still unknown.

Call to end illegal rendition flights through Shannon

first_imgHUMAN rights group Shannon Watch has called on the government to introduced measures to prevent the US from using Shannon Airport for illegal rendition flights. The anti-war and peace activist group, based in the Mid West, has been in the spotlight of late, with their attempts to end the use of Shannon Airport by US military troops travelling to and from Afghanistan and Iraq.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The group has now uncovered a dispute in New York between two aviation companies contracted to carry out rendition flights, with court files showing that they flew between the US and international airports, including Shannon, also landing at secret CIA-run prisons. Files show that Richmor Aviation and DynCorp, are in dispute over unpaid costs from such flights.A Gulfstream jet is suspected of having carried al-Qaida member Abd al-Nashiri, the prime suspect for the bombing of a US navy ship in Yemen in 2000, when it refuelled at Shannon.Court files reveal the flight, including stops in Dubai, Afghanistan, London and Washington, cost $198,000.“It was the first of a run of secret long-distance flights by the Gulfstream between 2002 and 2005 that paralleled the suspected movements of captured al-Qaida and other terrorist leaders who vanished into CIA-run black prisons after their arrests following the September 11 attacks,” said a group spokesperson.“Some of these service costs are no doubt included in the ‘profits’ that Shannon Airport has claimed to be making from US government business. “The airport facilities were used repeatedly over the years by private companies engaged in illegal and immoral activities. “Aviation companies like Richmor, fixed based operators, caterers and others, made money from kidnapping and torture”.

Grad students given charter of rights

first_imgOUSU Council has passed a motion to grant graduate students a new Charter, outlining their rights with regards to the University. The proposals, which will be put into action in the new academic year, was proposed by Paul Rollason and seconded by Ingrid Frater, OUSU Vice President for graduate students. The motion noted, “Graduate students are often unaware of what rights and entitlements are guaranteed to them by University rules and regulations…[and] that graduate students with complaints and problems don’t always know what action they are entitled to take.” The Charter will collate information, including course objectives, rent increases, college advisers and searching for private rooms. Rollason , who is a graduate student himself, said of his proposal, “The motivation for the charter was basically the impression I was getting that a lot of graduates aren’t happy with their experience of the University or that things aren’t as they expected. They are willing to put up with a lot for the sake of being able to put Oxford on their CV.” He added that he had been inspired to take the cause of graduate students after reading an article on the matter in the Guardian, in which two Oxford alumni criticised their graduate student experiences. The students, former recipients of the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship, described “a frustrating academic experience” in an “outdated academic system”, where advisers “spend more time avoiding emails than supervising students”. It went on to argue that ”DPhil students struggle to have supervisors read their dissertations before submission, and poor supervision is the rule, not the exception.” Rollason added, “There is no transparency or accountability in anything the colleges or faculties do and students have no idea what they are entitled to or how to go about making sure they get it. This seems to result in tremendous apathy from the graduate populace, who don’t see any point in complaining or trying to make things better.” Frater explained, “I would agree that a lot of the time information is clear and students do know procedures but because graduate students sit between their departments and college, the structure is a lot less clear for grads than undergrads.” According to Rollason the key issue of concern is often to do with rent. He said, “My college’s graduate rent went up 14% last year, in spite of protests and agreements reached in previous years. The rent is going up by another 5-14% next year and they won’t tell us the exact amount until the end of this term (so I’ve heard, but no announcements have been made at all by the college). “No one is willing or able to protest because they now realise their views don’t matter. I think there is also an implicit threat from colleges that rocking the boat will not make your life as a student easier.” The charter will be accessible to MCRs and on the OUSU website. A similar charter, introduced a year ago, already exists for undergraduates.last_img read more
