If you’ve got £3k, I’d buy these 3 FTSE 100 stocks right now

first_img If you have £3,000 to invest today, there are plenty of FTSE 100 stocks to choose from in this market.However, it’s highly unlikely that all of these businesses will emerge from the coronavirus crisis unscathed.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 three FTSE 100 companies that appear to have the resources to survive. They could even emerge stronger on the other side. FTSE 100 dividend championA few weeks ago, I highlighted FTSE 100 dividend champion Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO) as an income stock to buy in the market turmoil.It looks as if the company still meets this goal. Indeed, as the company’s FTSE 100 peers have slashed their dividends, Rio is standing by its distribution policy.The company’s Chairman told its shareholders last week that Rio will go ahead with its $3.7bn dividend payment this month. That means investors are in line for a $2.31 per share payout.Rio has not been unscathed by the virus. It has had to shut production at its mineral sands operation in South Africa and moderate activity at mines in Mongolia and Canada.Nevertheless, the price of iron ore, which accounts for most of Rio’s output, has remained steady at around $83 per tonne. Production costs are below $20 per tonne. This suggests that the company’s iron ore operations are still producing large profits, despite disruption elsewhere.As such, it could be worth adding Rio to your portfolio after recent declines.Family-ownedAnother FTSE 100 company that looks attractive after recent declines is Schroders (LSE: SDR).Schroders is one of the largest wealth managers in the UK. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely to escape the coronavirus crisis unscathed.However, from a long term perspective, the stock looks highly attractive.The firm’s founding family remain one of its largest shareholders. That suggests management has shareholders’ best interests in mind. Indeed, the firm actually emerged from the financial crisis in a stronger position than many of its peers for that reason.Schroders will likely see a decline in earnings and assets under management in 2020 due to the recent stock market declines. Nonetheless, as the markets recover over the next few years, the company’s size will help it stand out in a crowded field.With that being the case, now could be a good time for long term investors to snap up a share in this storied enterprise.Defensive positionHikma Pharmaceuticals (LSE: HIK) is one of the FTSE 100’s most defensive stocks. It also looks as if the company is one of the few businesses in the FTSE 100 that could outperform this year.At the end of February, Hikma informed the market that demand for its newly launched drugs in the US is exceeding expectations. This will help the company beat City growth expectations for the year, according to management.Therefore, if you’re looking for a relatively safe investment in this market, it could be worth taking a closer look at Hikma. The stock is currently dealing at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 16.8.I wouldn’t be surprised if this ratio drops as analysts upgrade their growth forecasts for the year following the company’s recent trading statement.It also offers a dividend yield of 1.8%. The payout is covered 3.2 times by earnings per share, which suggests that it’s incredibly safe.

Trotter and other volunteers from Trinity Episcopal Cathedral lead after-school activities on Thursdays at W.A. Perry Middle School in Columbia, South Carolina. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Columbia, South Carolina] The students of W.A. Perry Middle School know it’s 4 p.m. when the speakers begin blaring end-of-day announcements – information about the upcoming Sweetheart Ball, encouragement to “read, read, read your way to new heights.” And on this afternoon, a reminder: “Club Thursday.”“All after-school students should report to the cafeteria and sit in your assigned sections,” the announcement blared.Students who spend their early evenings at W.A. Perry know the routine by now. They know Club Thursdays mean an hour of cooking, sewing, tennis or golf. They know school social worker Marilyn Doucet will be checking to make sure they get to their assigned clubs. And they know the activities will be led not by school personnel but by a small, dedicated band of community volunteers.The volunteers come from Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in downtown Columbia, a detail of only passing importance to the students’ comprehension of the activities, yet underlying these experiences is a 16-year relationship between the cathedral and W.A. Perry. The cathedral’s lasting commitment of support is renewed every Thursday with each cookie baked and each needle threaded.“It’s been a great partnership with Trinity. What they do for us is priceless,” Doucet said Jan. 18 during Episcopal News Service’s visit to the after-school program.Church-school partnerships like this one in South Carolina’s capital city engage Episcopalians in the Episcopal Church’s call to address education inequity. It is a call taken up most prominently by the All Our Children network, which held a conference in Columbia last week that drew more than 100 educators, advocates and church leaders from multiple denominations.All Our Children is an ecumenical network with roots in the Episcopal Church. It was backed in 2015 by a General Convention resolution that identified church-school partnerships as “a path for following Jesus into the neighborhood, addressing educational inequity, and rejuvenating congregations.”South Carolina has been fertile ground for such partnerships thanks to the Bishops’ Public Education Initiative, which involves the state’s Episcopal, Lutheran, Roman Catholic, United Methodist, African Methodist Episcopal, African Methodist Episcopal Zion and Christian Methodist Episcopal churches.Diocese of Upper South Carolina Bishop Andrew Waldo, left, speaks Jan. 17 about an education initiative involving several Christian denominations in the state. Waldo was part of a panel discussion during the All Our Children conference held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Columbia, South Carolina. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service“God is calling us to raise up the gifts of every child that was put on this planet,” Diocese of Upper South Carolina Bishop Andrew Waldo said Jan. 17 at the All Our Children conference during a panel discussion about the Bishop’s Initiative.Waldo’s implication was one that reverberated across the three-day conference held at the cathedral: American children, though “created equal” in the eyes of Jeffersonian democracy, are not always treated equitably by their public education system, but instead find the scales tipped according to race, language, family income and even the street where they live.All Our Children seeks to balance those scales, and a common refrain at the conference was the need to develop meaningful relationships across racial, cultural and social divides. Anyone searching for examples could begin with the divide between the mostly white, affluent congregation at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral and the mostly black, low-income student body at W.A. Perry about a 10-minute drive to the north.“It’s good to see y’all here,” volunteer Patti Trotter said as the Club Thursdays cooking class got underway. The 16 students, broken into four groups, sat at tables in a classroom equipped with ovens and furnished with cookware and utensils.Of the 50 or so students in Club Thursdays, each identifies preferred activities at the start of the academic year and is assigned by the school to two of them, one club in the fall and the second club starting in January. This was the first club meeting of the new year, so Trotter and other volunteers from the cathedral helped the cooking students make an easy inaugural treat, cookies from prepackaged cookie dough.Trinity volunteer Beth Yon shows a W.A. Perry student some of the finer points of sewing a hem during one of the four Club Thursday activities at the school. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceIn the next room, fellow volunteer Beth Yon showed about a half dozen students how to sew a hem. Tie a big knot, she advised, so it will anchor the thread.The students will progress over the coming weeks to sewing a button, operating a sewing machine and eventually working on a final project, such as a pillow or a bag, Doucet said.The volunteers are called to this work by their faith, but religion isn’t discussed with the students. And despite the classroom setting, these lessons are not academic in a traditional sense. Their value is in the interaction between adult and child.“That’s very good,” Yon said to one girl, who was scrutinizing her stitches. “I’ll show you a trick,” Yon continued, and then imparted a nugget of needle-earned wisdom.Bridging divides in the push for education equityFor each Club Thursday activity, the cathedral sends three to six volunteers to help. The activities are chosen to give the students opportunities to try new experiences, and the volunteers also gain new experiences, spending time in a school and a neighborhood removed from their daily lives, said the Rev. Patsy Malanuk, Trinity’s canon for mission and outreach.“We’ve made deep relationships with the people at W.A. Perry,” Malanuk said, adding that the interactions with school officials and students have expanded her own “depth of experience.”School buses wait for students just before the end of classes at W.A. Perry Middle School in Columbia, South Carolina. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceW.A. Perry, one of nine middle schools in the Richland 1 School District, was chosen by Trinity for outreach partly because the cathedral already had been involved in the neighborhood, through a homeless ministry called St. Lawrence Place.Perry also is known as a Title 1 school, a federal classification indicating its students come predominantly from low-income families. Of its 375 students, 98 percent are from families with incomes low enough to qualify for free or reduced lunches. (Because of low family incomes district-wide, all students in the district now can receive free lunches.)The schools in South Carolina receiving federal Title 1 assistance make up a long list, but education equity advocates say some of the greatest need is found many miles from Columbia in the poor, rural school districts along the state’s Interstate 95 corridor. Crumbling facilities are common, resources are scarce and students are deprived of even a “minimally adequate education,” according to the South Carolina Supreme Court, which ruled in 2014 that the state had failed to meet its obligation to 30 school districts in that region.The court ordered the Legislature to develop a funding plan to correct that injustice, but after turnover on the bench, the State Supreme Court effectively reversed itself in November 2017, concluding it was up to legislators, not judges, to decide proper funding levels for education.Much of the public’s awareness of the rural schools’ plight was generated by the 2005 documentary “Corridor of Shame,” which depicted conditions in six of the districts included in the lawsuit. The film was directed by Bud Ferillo, a South Carolina native and former political aide to some of the state’s top elected officials.Bud Ferillo, interviewed in Columbia, directed the documentary “Corridor of Shame.” Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceDespite the attention his film brought to the issue of education equity, Ferillo thinks progress has been uneven at best. Some districts and schools may have improved, he said, but not through any concerted effort by lawmakers.“The state has not taken any definitive action to address the problems that were brought up in the suit,” Ferillo told Episcopal News Service in an interview near his home in Columbia.The South Carolina churches, on the other hand, have provided a model for pushing progressive stances on the issue, he said. Such broad coalitions of action put pressure on the state to adequately fund public education.Ferillo also doesn’t see equity as a rural versus urban issue. The funding reforms sought by the rural districts’ lawsuit would benefit poor districts in cities like Columbia as well.“Any decent remedy, we’ve always said, would not just be restricted to plaintiff districts,” he said. “It would be to any district similarly situated, with the same kinds of statistics – low-achievement schools with overwhelming minority enrollment and underpaid staff.”Malanuk acknowledged the range of need in South Carolina and in her city. “There’s still some schools around here that may be in deeper need,” she said, but the cathedral remains committed to the students at W.A. Perry.‘Natural connection’ bonds church, school for 16 yearsW.A. Perry Middle School, likewise, is glad to have Trinity as a partner.Marilyn Doucet, left, is the W.A. Perry Middle School social worker, and Robin Coletrain is the school’s principal. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service“It’s been just a very great relationship,” Robin Coletrain, W.A. Perry’s principal, said. “They do so much for us, and you just see the compassion and love in everything they do.”Coletrain has worked as a teacher and administrator in the Richland 1 district for 17 years. This is her second year at W.A. Perry.“Our kids come from some difficult home situations,” Coletrain said. Some live in single-parent homes or have parents working two or three jobs to get by. Some students are staying with their families at the temporary housing provided by St. Lawrence Place.Whatever challenges the school faces, it offers a warm and welcoming environment for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders. As important as the facility, Coletrain said, are the experiences the school offers the students, from field trips to see “The Nutcracker” to the activities after school.The after-school programs are partly funded by a federal grant, but Club Thursdays wouldn’t be the same without the volunteers from Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. Some of those volunteers spent the afternoon Jan. 18 coaching students on proper tennis technique on the courts outside the school, while others accompanied some students to a golf center a short distance away.Inside the school, the cooking club’s first session was wrapping up.“I’m so glad all of y’all are here,” Trotter said. “You did great on your cookies. You did great on your cleaning. We appreciate it.”Eighth-grader Caliyah Thompson, 13, was all smiles, joking with a classmate about some of the food she has made at home. Pasta, for starters. And a cake.“Two-layer cake,” she said, with a glint of pride.She and the other club members will learn table manners and a bit of floral arranging in the coming weeks before building up to a final entrée, such as lasagna.Doucet has been involved with the school’s partnership with Trinity from the beginning. She has worked at W.A. Perry for 18 years, long enough to see two generations of neighborhood families pass through the school’s doors.Through Club Thursdays, some of those students receive “experiences they wouldn’t get to have,” Doucet said, because of the work of people like Betty Gregory, one of the original volunteers from Trinity.Betty Gregory helps students cut cookie dough onto sheets for their after-school cooking activity at W.A. Perry. Gregory was among the volunteers from Trinity Episcopal Cathedral who 16 years ago helped start this church-school partnership, which Gregory called a “natural connection.” Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceAt 5:10 p.m., with the school’s kitchen tidied up after the cooking club, Gregory and Doucet chatted about how the partnership formed and how far it has come.The cathedral had parishioners who wanted to serve the community, and the school had needs to be met, Gregory said, but she and other volunteers didn’t go to the school with their own proposals. They started by asking school officials what they needed and then listening.Administrators said they needed more books, so the cathedral donated books. Then the volunteers asked what else was needed. More service projects followed.Eventually, school officials explained that they were running out of ideas for after-school enrichment activities. Trinity’s volunteers had some suggestions based on their individual interests.“Within six weeks, we had a program up and going,” Gregory said, calling it a ministry of presence.Now 16 years later, she sees the relationship between the cathedral and the school as something “intangible,” even “magical.”“It’s sort of like this natural connection,” Gregory said. “There was just something about Perry and Trinity coming together that was God-inspired.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Luke Fitzgerald hit on Doug Howlett, & Ronan O’Gara flattened by Isa Nacewa

first_imgFriday Jun 3, 2011 Luke Fitzgerald hit on Doug Howlett, & Ronan O’Gara flattened by Isa Nacewa Last weekend the Magners League Grand Final took place in Ireland, with Munster beating Leinster to come through 19-9 winners . Here’s two big moments from the game that are worth seeing again. While both of these came from the losing side, Leinster, they’re definitely two of the bigger hits that took place, and have been much requested over the course of the last week. That’s not to say that these were the only great things that happened in the game though. Anything but. It was an incredibly intense derby match and both sides produced some highly impressive defensive efforts. Special mention to Felix Jones and David Wallace of Munster, who both made match winning tackles, with Jones in particular being a rock at the back. After a bit of a discussion about it on the Rugbydump Facebook Page , it was decided that even though these two moments came from the same team, and the one that lost the match, they were two that neutral fans would most enjoy seeing. So here they are. First up is Luke Fitzgerald and his cracking tackle on Doug Howlett. Cracking is an apt description too, because the Irish winger actually came off second best, even though it was he who knocked down the All Black legend. Howlett’s former Auckland Blues teamate Isa Nacewa then had a big charge up field, picking out Ronan O’Gara and pretty much flattening him, with ROG hitting his head hard on the ground. In typical fashion though, he got up, took some time to recover, and played on. For those who didn’t watch the game, he did attempt the next penalty kick, but pushed it wide. :: Related Posts :: Munster take the Magners League title after beating Leinster in Grand Final ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Editor of Guerrero state’s leading daily found murdered in motel room

first_img Follow the news on Mexico May 5, 2021 Find out more Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Help by sharing this information Reports Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the murder of Misael Tamayo Hernández on 10 November in the southern state of Guerrero, which was probably linked to his work as editor of the leading regional daily. He is the fifth journalist to have been killed this year in Mexico. Reporters Without Borders today said it was appalled by the murder of Misael Tamayo Hernández, the editor of the leading regional daily El Despertar de la Costa, who was found dead in a motel room in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo in the southern state of Guerrero on 10 November. He was the fifth journalist to be killed this year in Mexico.“Tamayo’s death brings the number of journalists killed or missing in Mexico since the start of 2006 to seven, which confirms it as the western hemisphere’s deadliest country for the press,” the press freedom organisation said. “The initial enquiries indicate that Tamayo was killed because of his newspaper’s investigative reporting on drug trafficking.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We call for the national prosecutor’s office specialising in attacks on the press to take over the case, and for both federal and local investigators to be given substantial resources. And they should give priority to the theory that Tamayo was killed on account of his work as a newspaper editor.”According to the news agency Notimex, Tamayo’s body was found at around 7:30 a.m. in a motel on the outskirts of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, on the road linking Guerrero to the neighbouring state of Michoacán. The state police told Reporters Without Borders it received an anonymous call at about 7:00 a.m. mentioning room No. 1 at the motel Venus.The police said Tamayo’s naked body was found face down with his hands tied behind his back with a belt. There were punctures in his right forearm suggesting he was given a fatal injection. Three small packets containing a white powder resembling cocaine were found in his trouser pockets.Motel employees said they saw him arrive at about 1:25 a.m. in a vehicle that left an hour later. Colleagues said he was due to meet with the head of security of a bus company who cannot for the moment be located. The police have taken three persons into custody – receptionist Mario Peñalosa, motel owner René Martínez Contreras and someone identified as Ivan López Flores.Tamayo’s newspaper – the leading daily in Guerrero state – had reported three days before his murder on the explosion of two grenades in an Ixtapa Zihuatanejo neighbourhood. Tamayo wrote an editorial under his own byline on 9 November about corruption within the Zihuatanejo water authority, CAPAZ. The newspaper also covers feuding among local drug traffickers, which has been especially deadly this year.
