Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Investing £3k in the FTSE 100 today might not deliver strong returns in the short term. The world economy is facing extremely challenging conditions that could cause stocks to languish for some time.However, over the long run, the FTSE 100 is likely to recover from its crash and go on to post new highs — as it has following each of its previous downturns.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 cheap FTSE 100 stocks that appear too cheap to pass up after the market’s recent slump.FTSE 100 income championBHP (LSE: BHP) is one of the few FTSE 100 companies that haven’t cut their dividends this year. This could be because the business continues to experience strong demand for its output.Coronavirus has also had a relatively limited impact on the group’s operations. It has continued to maintain production at most of its sites. While there has been some limited disruption, management expects to hit the company’s initial production targets for the year.Despite this positive outlook, shares in the miner have fallen by 21% this year. As such, the stock appears to offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. It’s trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 10. That’s around 30% cheaper than its long-term average. It also supports a dividend yield of 6.8%.These numbers suggest this FTSE 100 dividend champion could deliver a more substantial share price performance than its peers over the next few years.Anglo AmericanAnother global FTSE 100 champion that could have the potential to generate robust returns in the years ahead is Anglo American (LSE: AAL).The coronavirus crisis has significantly impacted Anglo. In response, the company has acted quickly to cut capital spending and operating expenses. These initiatives should help the business save several billion dollars over the next year. On top of these initiatives, the group has $14.5bn of liquidity to help see it through the crisis.Anglo has also said it remains committed to its dividend for the time being. This suggests its yield of 5.6% is safe for the time being.The above implies this FTSE 100 company may be in a stronger position to survive severe operating conditions over the short term. Therefore, after falling 35% year-to-date, the shares appear to offer good value as well as the potential for large profits over the long run.Taylor WimpeyTaylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) might not have the international diversification offered by the companies above, but this FTSE 100 dividend champion seems to have a bright future.While the coronavirus crisis has thrown a cloud of uncertainty over the UK housing market in the short term, in the long run, it’s clear the market still remains structurally undersupplied.This suggests homebuilders should prosper over the long run. Ultra-low interest rates and government initiatives to spur home buying may also encourage house price growth.With that in mind, Taylor looks like it could be an excellent investment in a booming sector. The company may continue to face continued uncertainty in the short run, but over the next few years, demand for homes should only grow. That would be great news for the firm’s sales and bottom line.Now could be a great time to take advantage of the market’s short-term thinking and snap up a share in the business. £3k to invest? I’d buy these cheap FTSE 100 shares right now!

Foto: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Cárdenas, Cuba] “Si no somos parte de la solución, somos parte del problema”, dice el cartel a la entrada del Centro de Reflexión y Diálogo aquí. Es un lema que resuena en el ministerio del centro, con programas de compromiso con la comunidad y dirigidos al desarrollo humano y comunitario.El centro y su metodología “sirve como un buen modelo para las iglesias a través de América Latina”, dijo el obispo Julio César Holguín de República Dominicana, y agregó que a través de sus programas y programas de compromiso con la comunidad, el centro trabaja en la formación, tanto a nivel individual como comunitario. Holguín dirigió una pequeña delegación a Cuba del 18 de febrero hasta el 25 de febrero, para asistir al Sínodo General de la iglesia episcopal de Cuba en la Habana. La visita del 20 de febrero al centro, que fue fundada hace más de 20 años, fue una oportunidad para presenciar y aprender sobre el movimiento ecuménico de Cuba.Desde un punto de vista cristiano inclusive, el centro tiene como objetivo contribuir al sentido de la existencia humana, promover una concepción holística de la vida y la salud, promover la dignidad humana, y desarrollar una cultura de paz y participación de la comunidad, con énfasis en los pobres, los débiles y las personas marginadas de la sociedad, de acuerdo con su misión.“Yo estaba muy impresionado por la interacción, la conexión entre la reflexión y la práctica”, dijo el obispo Todd Ousley de la Diócesis de Michigan del este, y agregó que su enfoque a los programas y procesos se basa en la teología.El propósito del centro es promover el diálogo interreligioso centrado en la integración social a nivel comunitario, con cuatro objetivos para ese fin:fomentar el reconocimiento de la dignidad humana, inspirado en las verdades del Evangelio;animar el procesos de reconciliación, paz y desarrollo de valores humano;estimular la participación de la comunidad y el desarrollo del individual; ypromover servicios para las personas necesitadas, enfermas y sufridas.Sobre este último, cuatro de los empleados del centro – dos mujeres y dos hombres – proporcionan comidas, higiene básica, lavandería y otros servicios de cinco días a la semana a 120 personas de edad avanzada, y cuidados a personas infectadas con el VIH.“Es un ministerio difícil”, dijo Rita García Morris, subdirectora del centro. “La gente es muy pobre, y viven en una habitación sin un baño”.Además del programa de cuidado de los ancianos, el centro cuenta con una biblioteca y centro de informática, ofrece talleres de manualidades para niños y ancianos, programas culturales para personas de todas las edades, grupos de debate sobre temas que van desde la teología y derechos humanos a la violencia doméstica, además de servir como un lugar de culto.“[Es] muy impresionante – mente, cuerpo, espíritu, uno lo está haciendo todo”, dijo Ousley durante un recorrido por el centro.En el futuro, el centro espera proporcionar un hogar de cuidado de ancianos, donde las personas a quienes sirven puedan vivir y recibir cuidados diarios, y también un refugio para las víctimas de la violencia doméstica, otra población al cual el centro sirve en su ministerio de alcance.Se trata de “sueños”, dijo García Morris. “Los sueños son para la gente con fe”.Ubicado en una antigua fábrica, el centro comenzó a funcionar a principios de 1990, pero no fue hasta 2011 que el gobierno cubano le concedió al centro licencia oficial.Además de sus ministerios de alcance local, el centro acoge grupos nacionales e internacionales de jóvenes y adultos, con capacidad para entre 80 y 90 personas en sus 28 habitaciones. El personal solicita que las reservas se harán tres o cuatro meses con anticipación para coordinar las visas religiosas necesarias.El centro también ofrece una amplia variedad de publicaciones. Holguín se desempeñó como obispo interino de la iglesia episcopal de Cuba desde el 2003 hasta el 2004, y al mismo tiempo sirvió en la República Dominicana. Además de Ousley, Holgún estuvo acompañado por el Rdo. Emilio Martin, quien es cubano, y sirvió en el consejo de la junta de directores cuando fue sacerdote de la iglesia episcopal de San Francisco de Asís en Cárdenas; Bill Kunkle, director ejecutivo del Grupo de Desarrollo Dominicano; y David Morrow, presidente de la junta directiva de la DDG.La junta de directiva de DDG, en la que Ousley también se desempeña, se reunió la semana pasada en Santo Domingo, República Dominicana, para su reunión anual del consejo después de la convención diocesana anual.– Lynette Wilson es una editora/reportera para Episcopal News Service.

Manchester based charity, Henshaws Society for Blind People, which supports blind and visually impaired people across the north of England, has won the Visual Impairment category at the Visionary Design Awards.The Awards are part of an ongoing campaign by the National Library for the Blind (NLB) to encourage website publishers and designers to consider access technology when designing sites. The Henshaws site was designed by London-based Poptel Technology, specialists in accessible web design. Judges felt that accessibility was integral to the design of the new site, and commended the extent to which the website meets the needs of those using access technologies.

Reporters Without Borders continues to be dissatisfied with the Belarusian media’s coverage of the campaign for Sunday’s parliamentary elections after seeing the report of the monitoring conducted by the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), a Reporters Without Borders partner organisation, between 5 and 20 September.According to the BAJ report, political programmes and debates continued to be ignored by the media and all the observers have criticised this glaring absence.“We regret that there has been no improvement in the media coverage of the campaign for the legislative elections, especially this was a chance for Belarus to normalise its relations with the international community,” Reporters Without Borders said.The final weeks of the election campaign were no different from the earlier ones. The BAJ has accused the state-controlled media of “totally depoliticising the election and marginalising political programmes and alternative candidates, while privately-owned publications are unable to fill the gap because of their limited distribution.” Media coverage has been limited to explaining the technical aspects of the polling and the way the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) works. As a result, Belarusian voters are not able to take an informed decision about the candidates.According to the findings of the BAJ’s monitoring, the state media focused on the activities of President Alyaksandr Lukashenko, the CEC, the local authorities and foreign observers. The president was the only person named by the Homyel Regional State Radio in its election coverage.The BAJ gave a cautious welcome to the CEC’s decision to rebroadcast the campaign spots of all the candidates. But the effect of the measure was limited by the fact that many of the spots were re-transmitted at times when there are relatively few viewers.The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s observers have also issued a report criticising the state media. It regretted that there was no coverage of candidates’ campaign speeches and the media focused on the election’s technical aspects.The OSCE report, issued on 19 September, said: “Media coverage, both on the national andlocal level, has been almost exclusively focused on procedural aspects of the election process. Most media, predominantly state-funded, have paid extensive attention to the president, as well as to other state authorities, including the government and the CEC, rather than on the role of the parliament or the candidates.”Meanwhile, problems have been reporting in the early voting which is being conducted during the five days prior to Sunday, the main election day.When Yuri Dziadzinkin, a reporter for the independent daily Narodnaya Vola, went with his press card to polling station No. 398 in Minsk, electoral officials told him he could not take any photos because the head of the polling station had forbidden it. CEC secretary Mikalai Lazavik explained the ban as being due to the journalist’s poor “human relations” with the polling station’s staff.

Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Top of the News Make a comment Community News Subscribe EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS PCC’s All-Conference second baseman Justine Zavala returns for her second season in 2015With the return of two key players from two seasons ago, the Pasadena City College softball team thinks it can make big strides in the 2015 season, according to second-year head coach Monica Tantlinger.Tantlinger’s Lancers finished 13-25 last season, a learning year for the the coach.“I made the transition from being an assistant to a head coach,” she said. “The players were learning the college game, and I was learning more about leadership and the day-to-day direction of a group of student-athletes. I know the areas that we have to work on to be better this season.”The Lancers are excited to return All-South Coast Conference First Team infielder Katelyn Thordarson, who sat out last year after leading PCC in a number of top batting categories in 2013. Thordarson hit .392 as a freshman with two home runs, three triples and 29 RBI. The team’s shortstop that year, Thordarson (from Maranatha High) will transition herself to be corner infielder at both first base and third base.Another returner from the ’13 Lancers is Cierra Newton (Marshall Fundamental), who is slated as the team’s pitching ace this season. Newton hurled 136.1 innings and led PCC in pitching victories with 8.“This fall, Cierra found a way to get it done, and I expect her maturity to lead our our other pitchers through the season,” Tantlinger said. “Katelyn is determined to continue to be the slugger she was as a freshman. She has power, something we lacked last year.”Another key returning player is 2014 All-SCC Second Team second baseman Justine Zavala (Los Altos High). Zavala batted .340 and fielded at a .934 percentage as the team’s best defensive infielder last season. Other returning lettermen from Tantlinger’s debut PCC team are designated player/first baseman Jennifer Pegg (Temple City HS, hit .319 with 14 RBI), utility player/pitcher Breanna Rodrigo (Temple City, .291, led PCC with 21 stolen bases, pitched 80.2 innings with five victories in the circle), and reserve first baseman Lyandra Opbroek (Covina High, .273 in brief action).The team’s freshmen crop is topped by catcher Holly Riker-Sloan, a veteran player who played her prep ball and graduated from Gahr High in 2009. Sloan hit .500 as a senior that year and Tantlinger feels she will be a “presence on both defense and offense.”Another quality freshman is shortstop Anais Sustayta, who helped Cantwell Sacred Heart make it to the CIF-SS Division 6 championship final as a senior last year.“Justine and Ani give us one of the best up-the-middle infield defensive combos in the conference,” Tantlinger said. “The dynamics between these two are exciting to watch. It’s going to help our pitching staff if we can get the ball hit on the ground.”Outfielder/first baseman Derek “Mudder” Blow made the Pasadena Star-News All-Area Team after batting .500 with 26 RBI in her senior season at Monrovia High. Blow helped Monrovia win the Rio Hondo League title.Outfielder Yecenia Cardenas, an All-Valle Vista League First Team selection out of Hacienda Heights’ Wilson High, batted .493 with 23 RBI as a senior. Cardenas and letterman Rodrigo are expected to give the Lancers speed on the basepaths.Pitcher/outfielder Brianna Lopez (Los Angeles Marshall High) and hard-hitting third baseman Jackie Aguilar (Lincoln HS, .521, four home runs, 38 RBI senior year) originally were headed to Mayville State University in North Dakota but instead will display their talents for the Lancers. Aguilar played in the LA City Section All-Star Game.A pitcher who could emerge is Adriana Fernandez, who hurled 11 wins and struck out 109 batters in 106 innings at Workman High. Fernandez was an All-Montview League First Team selection and a candidate for league MVP. She also has power at the plate as she slugged eight home runs her final prep season.The rest of the freshmen on PCC’s 18-player roster are as follows: Alyssa Borja (catcher/second baseman, Gabrielino High, Michelle Lopez, outfielder, Pasadena High, Raquel “Rocky” Edmonds, catcher, San Marino HS, Alejandra Grimaldo, utility player, Burbank Burroughs High, and Mariah Quintana, outfielder/catcher, South El Monte High.“I really believe that we have enough offense and defense to get us higher in the standings,” Tantlinger said. “I think it’s our pitching that will dictate how we go. If we can hold down the better hitting opponents, we have a chance to really make noise this season.”Tantlinger has added Nolan Peralta, Jose Quezada, and LeNae Sanchez to her assistant coaching staff with holdover pitching coach Stephanie Marshall.PCC begins the ’15 campaign Tuesday, Jan. 27 in a 2 p.m. game at Antelope Valley College.
