The FTSE 100’s recent market crash may cause some investors to switch their focus to assets that could offer lower risks. For example, Premium Bonds and Cash ISAs may seem appealing. However, interest rates are expected to remain low over the medium term, so their returns could prove to be disappointing.Likewise, an uncertain economic outlook may harm the return prospects of buy-to-let properties. As such, buying FTSE 100 shares could be a sound move over the long term owing to their relatively low valuations.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…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that could be worth buying today and holding over the coming years.Reckitt BenckiserThe Reckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB) share price declined by as much as 16% in the FTSE 100’s recent crash. However, it has since recovered all of those losses. It seems investors have become more positive about the prospects for the world economy.The company’s recent results highlighted that coronavirus could have an impact on its near-term performance. It reported a decline in sales for some of its products, as supply chains have been disrupted. However, its cleaning products saw a rise in demand in some markets.Looking ahead, Reckitt Benckiser plans to invest a larger amount of capital in its digital operations. As part of this, it expects to invest around £2bn in improving its market position across a wide range of product categories. This could improve its profitability in the long run, alongside a rise in its number of products, and a sharper focus on its fastest-growing markets such as China, Long term, the company is aiming for annual earnings growth of 7%-9%. This prospect could improve investor sentiment towards its shares. And it could help them stay ahead of the wider FTSE 100 in the coming years.easyJeteasyJet’s (LSE: EZJ) share price continues to be relatively unpopular among investors. The FTSE 100 airline’s stock price is now down by around 57% since the start of the year. That is no surprise as coronavirus has grounded all of its aircraft for the foreseeable future. This is likely to cause its financial performance to come under pressure. And that may lead to further declines for its stock price in the short run.However, the company’s recent trading update highlighted that it has introduced cost-cutting measures and deferred the purchase of 24 aircraft. It has also increased its funding by around £2bn, which will boost its chances of overcoming present difficulties. It now has a cash balance of around £3.3bn, which the business calculates would be sufficient to fund its operations for nine months if its aircraft remain grounded.Although easyJet faces a significant amount of uncertainty, its low share price and relatively strong financial position could provide high return potential. As such, it could offer attractive turnaround prospects over the long run. Image source: Getty Images.

Super Rugby – Australian Conference Guide

first_img Collapse Super Rugby – New Zealand Conference Guide Title Drought: The Waratahs were the last Australian side to win the title, back in 2014 (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Super Rugby – Australian Conference GuideThe 2018 Super Rugby competition looks very different from its 2017 edition, with three fewer teams, rules changes and a new format. For all the details of those changes, visit our Super Rugby explained article.It was a pretty dour year for Australian rugby, for example they had 26 losses and no victories against New Zealand sides. But let’s take a look at the five sides in the Australian conference looking to stop that trend.BrumbiesChristian Lealiifano has returned from Pro14 side Ulster and is excited to start a new chapter with the Brumbies.“The big idea of heading over (to Ulster) was to refresh, to come back rejuvenated and to experience the type of footy over there was sensational,” Lealiifano said. “I’ve known the Brumbies my whole life and to experience a new culture was really enjoyable for me.”However, David Pocock, who has returned after a year-long sabbatical, has needed knee surgery, which will set his return to action back by at least 12 weeks. One of his back-row colleagues, Scott Fardy, has also departed for Leinster.Finally, coach and Wallaby legend Stephen Larkham left his post to become an assistant coach for the Australia national side and he has been replaced by Dan McKellar.Frustrated: Knee surgery will keep David Pocock out for at least 12 weeks (Getty Images)Notable InsMatt Lucas (Waratahs)Notable OutsTomas Cubelli (Jaguares), Saia Fainga’a (London Irish), Scott Fardy (Leinster)PredictionWill do well to get anywhere near a play-off spot.Melbourne RebelsCoach Tony McGahan has left to become an assistant for the Reds and he’s been replaced by former Western Force head coach David Wessels.Unlike the Force, the Rebels avoided the ARU’s axe and it is not all bad in Melbourne, the signings of Adam Coleman and Will Genia being particularly noteworthy. Coleman has become a key member of the Wallabies side and will take up the captaincy role for the Rebels.Genia is one of the best scrum-halves in the world and his skills and leadership will be vital to their success.Vital signing: The Rebels have done well to sign Will Genia (Getty Images)Notable InsAdam Coleman (Force), Will Genia (Stade Francais), Dane Haylett-Petty (Force), Geoff Parling (Exeter Chiefs)Notable OutsMitch Inman (Oyonnax), Sean McMahon (Suntory Sungoliath), Jake Schatz (London Irish), Toby Smith (Hurricanes)PredictionWill battle it out with the Sunwolves for the unwanted title of the worst side in the competition.RedsNew coach Brad Thorn has already caused quite a stir in his new role in Queensland. After four wins and 11 losses last season, it is not surprising he wants to make changes, yet he has shocked many by saying Wallabies Quade Cooper and Nick Frisby will not be part of his plans.As a result, Cooper has been demoted down to Brisbane club rugby, whereas Frisby has been signed by Bordeaux as a medical joker in the Top 14.Related: Medical Jokers in the Top 14  Snubbed: Quade Cooper will not be part of Brad Thorn’s plans in the Reds set-up (Getty Images)Notable InsJono Lance (Force)Notable OutsStephen Moore (retired), Rob Simmons (Waratahs)PredictionThe omission of Cooper has caused controversy down under so Thorn is already on the back foot. It will be surprising if they get near the play-offs.SunwolvesThere is a lot of excitement in Japanese rugby at the moment with the World Cup a year away. There is also the belief that rugby is trending in the right direction in Japan with it growing significantly in high schools and colleges. According to Shane Williams, there are just more better players around now.Related: Shane Williams discusses the 2019 World CupAnd the introduction of the Sunwolves Super Rugby franchise has helped, despite their poor form. They had two wins and 13 losses last year so have brought in former Highlanders coach Jamie Joseph, who is also in charge of the Japan national team, to make changes. He has said he will be targeting a top-five finish.In terms of signings, Michael Leitch brings skill and experience to the back of the scrum – and he is a folk hero in Japan.Hero: Leitch led Japan to a memorable victory over South Africa in the 2015 World Cup (Getty Images)Notable InsLappies Labuschagne (Kubota Spears), Michael Leitch (Chiefs), Robbie Robinson (Ricoh Black Rams)Notable OutsNonePredictionWill struggle in 2018 and likely to be competing with the Rebels at the bottom of the table.WaratahsIn 2018, the Waratahs back-line is laced with Wallabies and the addition of Kurtley Beale specifically brings creativity and huge experience to the centre or full-back positions.The forwards, on the other hand, may struggle as they will be heavily reliant on Michael Hooper, Rob Simmons and Sekope Kepu.Interestingly, the Waratahs are the only side in the conference not to have a new head coach – Daryl Gibson remains in charge – so continuity is heavily on their side.Leaders: Foley and Hooper will look to get the Waratahs back to winning ways (Getty Images)Notable InsKurtley Beale (Wasps), Rob Simmons (Reds)Notable OutsRob Horne (Northampton Saints), Matt Lucas (Brumbies), Dean Mumm (retired), Will Skelton (Saracens)PredictionWill bounce back in 2018, topping the Australian conference.

I had no liturgical responsibilities on Ash Wednesday one year, so Kelly and I headed to St George’s Savannah for the evening liturgy. There also, to our surprise, were Henry and Jan. The four of us broke our fast together at a little Thai restaurant nearby after the liturgy. We had the best time with the best company.”Bishop Benhase added, “Episcopal transitions are never easy for anyone, but Henry was so humble and open and that made it so much easier. His love for God was apparent to anyone who spent time with him.”Please join in prayer for Jan, for their daughters Amy, Susan and Katie and the whole Louttit Family.

Louttit Jr. during the 2009 diocesan convention. Photo: Julius Ariail[Diocese of Georgia] The people of the Diocese of Georgia mourn the loss of the Rt. Rev. Henry I. Louttit Jr., who died peacefully on the morning of Dec. 31.Louttit was born in West Palm Beach, Florida, on June 13, 1938, son of Bishop and Mrs. H. I. Louttit Sr. Married in 1962, he and his wife Jan had three children: Amy, Susan and Katie. His undergraduate degree is from The University of the South and he graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary in 1963. He was ordained a deacon by his father, then bishop of South Florida, and a priest the following year by Bishop Albert R. Stuart, then bishop of Georgia. He served Trinity Church, Statesboro, and in 1967 became rector of Christ Church, Valdosta, where he remained until election as bishop in 1994. He was consecrated bishop on Jan. 21, 1995, in the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Savannah.The bishop promoted congregational development and planted new congregations: Holy Comforter was established from St. Paul’s, Augusta, in Evans County; King of Peace was planted in Kingsland; and St. Luke’s was started in Rincon.Bishop Louttit strove to keep the diocese united during a period of great controversy following the ordination of Bishop Gene Robinson in New Hampshire.

He also named the goal of at least one deacon in every congregation and ordained many people to that order of ministry. He supported Cursillo and Happening and regularly led summer camp sessions, offering the music camp for many years as priest and bishop.Louttit called for the election of a successor in February 2009. He retired on the consecration of the tenth bishop of Georgia on January 23, 2010.In his first address as bishop to diocesan convention, Louttit stated he believed the ministry of the bishop to be: an encourager, friend and prayer supporter; the link between congregations in our diocese, throughout the world and back through time to the apostles; the chief administrator, planner and visioner; troubleshooter and reconciler; the sharer of family stories, like the grandfather of the family; an iconic model of Christian service.

Tagged with: Big Lottery Fund Funding NCVO  71 total views,  1 views today Big Lottery Fund matched funding to open up European funding for more organisations Big Lottery Fund plans to open up new funding opportunities from Europe for English voluntary organisations by matching over £250 million with money from Europe.The funding plans have involved months of work between Big Lottery Fund, National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and government departments. They aim to increase sector involvement in European funding, and represent “a substantially more community-led approach” to European funding, according to NCVO.The plans were announced by Big Lottery Fund Chief Executive, Dawn Austwick, at today’s Evolve conference, run by NCVO.European Structural and Investment Fund 2014-2020The matched funding applies to the European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF), very little of which has to date been accessed directly by charities. The new seven-year, 2014-2020 round of the Fund should be approved by the European Commission later this year.After that, Big Lottery Fund will be able to match over £260 million of Lottery funding in England against a similar figure from ESIF for projects that address poverty and social inclusion, for example, by improving skills, employability and education opportunities in disadvantaged communities.The combined funds will be managed by the Big Lottery Fund, which will be made available next year. Meanwhile, the Fund would make £620,000 available over the summer to connect voluntary organisations together to ensure that they are involved in discussions about the funding and can start developing bids.Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO, said:“Previously, work funded by European social inclusion funding has been nationally designed, and delivered through large organisations. We made very clear that we believe the best way for the funding to make a difference is to use it to support the work of expert charities. This is why we called for the money earmarked for social inclusion to be available to the voluntary sector. Voluntary organisations will now be shaping and running the projects they think are necessary to help people in disadvantaged communities”. Advertisementlast_img read more

Live censorship on government TV station amid criticism of new broadcasting law

first_img November 7, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Live censorship on government TV station amid criticism of new broadcasting law News Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders condemns the government pressure that led to the debate programme “Ira Anduru Pata” being cut short as it was being broadcast live on the evening of 4 November on state TV station Rupavahini. It ended a discussion of a new broadcasting law by three guests, including Free Media Movement convener Uvindu Kurukulasuriya.The presenter announced a break for advertisements after 45 minutes, but the rest of the programme, which normally lasts two hours, was suppressed. Kurukulasuriya had been criticising the government’s media policies before he was censored. It was the first time in nine years that this press freedom activist was invited to speak on Rupavahini.This censorship came as widespread criticism forced the government to retreat on its newly-introduced Private Television Broadcasting Station Regulations. After receiving representatives of journalists’ organisations and media owners, media and information minister Anura Priyadharshana Yapa announced that implementation of the new regulations would be suspended for a month, and he gave the media two weeks to submit their proposals for amendments.Four people, including Kurukulasuriya as FMM representative, filed a petition before the supreme court challenging the regulations, which were published in the official gazette on 10 October without any form of prior consultation. The new rules would restrict development of privately-owned TV by increasing the government’s control over the issuing and withdrawal of broadcasting licences, which would have to be renewed annually.Noting the government’s decision to suspend the regulations, Reporters Without Borders said: “This law is extremely dangerous for media freedom. Delaying its implementation is not enough. Its content needs to be changed radically.” to go further Receive email alerts Follow the news on Sri Lanka July 15, 2020 Find out more January 13, 2021 Find out morecenter_img News Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Organisation News July 29, 2020 Find out more Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial RSF_en last_img read more

Maritime project bridges generation gap

first_imgLinkedin Facebook Advertisement THE St. Mary’s Maritime Project is set to increase in volunteers this summer after a volunteer’s grandson introduced the innovative venture to his fellow students at Ard Scoil Rís.The pupils recently enjoyed a trip to the youth training scheme, based in Corcanree Business Park off the Dock Road, prompted by Dylan Kruger, whose grandfather Jim Quinn has been working on the project for a number of years.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Jim is a native of the Island Road in St. Mary’s Parish and a retired marine engineer. He has volunteered his time for the last number of years to help restore the two historic vessels; the Maria Noble and the MV Posidonia.Jim’s grandson Dylan, a transition year student at Ard Scoil Rís, has been assisting him in his spare time and receiving expert tutoring from his grandfather. “Dylan sought permission to spend his period of work experience as a volunteer with St. Mary’s Maritime Project”, said chairman Dan Hegarty.“As the project is principally a youth training project, we were delighted to accept his services. He performed magnificently for the fortnight but it was nothing less than expected, as he spent many of his Saturdays and days off from schools on the restoration project, which has .an ambition to ‘recycle’ two classic vessels – to recycle parish natives and their families back to their roots is a wonderful side-effect.“Dylan gave great feedback to his schoolmates and teachers, whose interest in the project was then sparked.”Recently 20 pupils and two teachers from the school visited the site as part of their Local Studies programme.On arrival, the students were given a lecture on the history of the vessels that are being restored and the perceived needs of the project were explained to them.The visitors were then treated to hot-dogs prepared by the ‘chef du jour’ Dan Clancy, before receiving a full guided tour from Ray O’Halloran, Tony Farrell, Christy Duhig and Dan Hegarty.A number of students expressed interest in taking part in the project during the summer holidays and organisers are looking forward to working with them.
