I’d buy these FTSE 100 stock market crash bargains today

first_img Image source: Getty Images. 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. Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 9th April, 2020 | More on: BLND LAND There’s a whole range of FTSE 100 stocks on offer right now. These stock market crash bargains look cheap after recent declines. As a result, they could be good long-term investments at current levels.FTSE 100 bargainOne FTSE 100 bargain that stands out after the crash is Landsec (LSE: LAND). The UK’s largest listed landlord owns a portfolio of commercial property throughout the country. This portfolio was worth around £13bn as of its last valuation date.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…But shares in the real estate investment trust (REIT) have taken a pummelling over the past two weeks. It’s easy to see why. The FTSE 100 landlord collected just 65% of rent due in March. That’s compared to 96% for the equivalent period last year.With income plunging, management has decided to cancel dividends for the foreseeable future. On top of this, as the UK property market is currently frozen, Landsec has warned it’s not possible to place a value on its portfolio right now.However, despite all of the above, it’s important to remember property is a long-term asset. While Landsec’s income is under pressure right now, this situation is unlikely to persist for the next three or four years.Landsec can afford to sit and wait for the market to turn around. At the end of September 2019, the group’s loan-to-value ratio was just 28%. At the end of March, the property champion had total financial liquidity of £1.2bn, excluding any near-term debt repayments.All of the above suggests Landsec can survive the current crisis. What’s more, the stock is currently trading at a price-to-tangible book (P/TB) value of just 0.5, which suggests it offers a wide margin of safety at current levels.As such, now could be an excellent time to snap up shares in this top-tier bargain.Diversified portfolioAs well as Landsec, British Land (LSE: BLND) also stands out as a FTSE 100 bargain in the current market.British Land is facing the same pressures as it’s a larger top-tier peer. The REIT has also had to suspend its dividend for the foreseeable future.Also, according to the company’s most recent trading update, just 12% of its retail stores are still open. Around 41% of the firm’s portfolio is retail properties with the remainder comprised of London offices and residential properties.Nevertheless, despite these pressures on the company’s cash flows, British Land has plenty of cash available to keep the lights on. A loan to value ratio of 31%, as well as £1.2bn of liquidity, should help the business weather the storm.Like its FTSE 100 peer, British Land also looks cheap after recent declines. The stock is trading at a P/TB ratio of 0.5, at the time of writing. This implies the company could worth 100% more than its current market value if it’s broken up and sold.With that being the case, it looks as if long-term investors should consider taking a look at this property champion. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’d buy these FTSE 100 stock market crash bargains today I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Who is George Martin: Find out more about England’s new back-row

first_img Leicester Tigers’ George Martin in action against Bath (Getty Images) The Leicester Tiger is set to win his first cap for England against Wales this weekend Six things you should know about George Martin1. George Martin was born on 18 June 2001 in Nottingham. He stands at 6ft 6in (1.98m) and weighs 118kg (18st 8lb).2. Martin had made seven senior appearances and scored one try for Leicester Tigers before being named in England’s match-day 23 to play Wales. His first score for his club came in their match against Harlequins in February 2021.3. England head coach Eddie Jones has praised the 19-year-old’s work ethic and has suggested he could move to the second row in the future, saying: “With time he may be able to play lock as well.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Who is George Martin: Find out more about England’s new back-rowLeicester Tigers back-row George Martin is set to make his England debut this weekend as he has been named as a replacement for their Six Nations match against Wales.Martin was origianlly named in Eddie Jones’s ‘shadow squad’ for the championship and was called up to the senior set-up after Wasps’ Jack Willis suffered a serious knee injury against Italy in the second round.Martin is also familiar with long lay-offs having suffered a serious knee injury himself against London Irish in August 2020 – just a few days after making his Premiership debut against Bath – that took him out of the game for the rest of the year. He has since fully recovered and returned to the pitch for Leicester in January.center_img Jones added: “George is very much an old fashioned six – good defensive ability, carries the ball hard and is also a lineout option.“He’s got a big body on him and we’re so lucky he’s been well-coached at Leicester by Steve Borthwick, so he comes in with a really good work ethic. If he keeps working hard he’s going to be a good player.” Can’t get to the shops?

Dr. Martin Bayang). Best wishes to you as you journey in beauty. Carolyn Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Submit a Job Listing Posted Jun 27, 2015 Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Youth Minister Lorton, VA [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release]  “This is my story, this is who I am,” the Rev. Cathlena A. Plummer of Navajoland shared in her sermon to the 78th General Convention of The Episcopal Church on June 27.Bishop Michael Smith of North Dakota presided at the Eucharist.The following is the text of the sermon: A Very Good ShepherdThe Rev. Cathlena A. PlummerLet Us Pray…God, today, we ask you to give us clear minds, open spirits and loving hearts. Amen.Can I just say what a relief it is for me to finally sit down to reflect on our gospel today? How appropriate for a former shepherd from the Good Shepherd Mission in Fort Defiance, Arizona to reflect on our very own Good Shepherd, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.As a young Navajo girl in the southeastern part of Utah, I grew up helping my mother and father with a herd of sheep that have been our sustenance as well as our extended family members.Sheep do not have a complicated life but they are creatures of habit.  Within their own flock they have leaders who they follow as they feed and there is a hierarchy that they follow and one of their number cannot usurp that position.Likewise the sheep know who their master is, their shepherd.  They will in fact come at their master’s voice and anyone else who tries is just wasting their time.If a stranger attempted to enter their pen the nervousness they would feel would be evident but when the shepherd appeared he could move through their midst as if he were one of them.I think that this comparison of us to sheep and Christ as the great shepherd is an apt one.  Those who are His spend time in His word and recognize His voice.  His flock wants to follow where He leads them, He can impart comfort and confidence.  Just as a ewe in difficult labor must rely on her shepherd, so must we rely upon Him for help through our travails.  Just as the master over a flock knows what is best for a flock because of the mind that God has given man, so is God’s knowledge of what is best for us.  And just as a predator stalks a flock so are we stalked “as our enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”Those are just some of the parallels that can be drawn but there are also places that they cannot.  Unlike the sheep in a flock we have a complicated life.  We have other leaders that we follow. Unlike the sheep we have people who have gone against the natural leadership that should be followed.In the case of the Jews that is what happened with the Pharisees and the high priests.  Those leaders had become thieves and robbers who destroyed by their lack of godly leadership and like the hired hand who doesn’t own the sheep.  No one cared for the people as a true shepherd would his flock.Fortunately for us Christ is the shepherd.  Though we were sheep that were not of the original sheep pen we have heard and listened to His voice. But…the Bible tells us that there will be another.I want to share with you my sheep story.As a Native American growing up in the Episcopal tradition it has always been a challenge to connect two very opposite views of spirituality, that of Navajo and of Christianity.In the summer of the year 2008 I believe I was called upon, by the Great Holy Spirit to do the work of an Episcopal priest. My father, the late Rt. Rev. Steven T. Plummer, Sr., had already been gone from our world for three years.On a particular warm and sunny summer afternoon I was asked by my mother to fetch the herd of sheep that we have been raising for many years. This day they had retreated to the high cliffs thanks to the neighbor’s dogs that have always enjoyed chasing them. Two lambs, only days old, were my deepest worry for retrieving the herd before nightfall.In the middle of my search I came across a steep bend on the edge of a steep 400 foot drop at the mouth of a canyon ridge. A concave space in the cliff wall I was pressing up against was the only net of safety to keep me from falling over the edge. I drew up my strength to press on so I continued climbing. Just as I was about to turn the corner, a loud voice spoke to me in the air, I could not tell if it was inside my head, or if I was actually hearing it out in the open.  This voice sounded a lot like my father’s voice but it could not have been because my father was gone. The voice continued to speak. This time it was calling me in my Navajo name. This drew my attention. I did not know if I was hallucinating or imagining the whole incident, but I very quietly whispered, “yes?”Then the voice continued to speak to me in Navajo telling me, “as my child I am very pleased with you and I need your help with my people for they are in trouble.” Without really analyzing the situation, I pictured in my head a meeting that had happened the week before where everyone was bickering at each other about whether or not they should have more meetings because the Bishop was to visit the following month to go over financial documents in the parish. In my memory it was clear that there were voices that were not being heard, which at this meeting, included the presence of the Navajo laity. As soon as the thought disappeared from my mind the voice spoke again and said in Navajo, “you know what I speak of.”I immediately knelt down and wept. I had not heard my father’s voice in so long, so I wondered whether or not I was going insane or not. I finally stood up to continue on.  Just as I stepped forward a rush of little hooves ran passed me very quickly, and the rest of the herd followed. I was grateful I did not have to go any further up the canyon, and I waited ten paces back from the herd to make sure everyone had been accounted for.Navajo spirituality, as known to a medicine man in our tribe, is described as a soft gentle breeze. This is exactly what I felt when I was hearing the voice. Later on, when I would tell this story to my Commission On Ministry members, everyone agreed that the voice was probably my father and that it was God’s disguise to get me to listen to him in a way that I could.I remember that day vividly, almost as vividly as I remember the day my father died, so it was truly a better memory to have. From that day forward whenever I am in doubt of the presence of my father or of God, a gentle voice saying my Navajo name will come and appear and I realize then that I am right where I am supposed to be.I desire to help my people understand that Christianity and Navajo traditions are hand in hand and connect in so many ways than one. Our church has an understanding of this harmony and we call it “Hooghan Learning Circle.”Hooghan Learning Circle first of all represents the shared walk along the Sacred Way, in which we as a people are to learn to relate to the wisdom and traditions of our own Holy People and Jesus in harmony and beauty. It is an on-going development of ministry formation process that encourages and supports the emergence and carrying of the wisdom of the two spiritual traditions, Diné and Christianity for all who seek this common faith. My father implemented this ministry development process and I intend to honor his work with Hooghan Learning Circle with the help of my own theological education formation.This is my story, this is who I am, I believe in both faith traditions.  AMENThe 78th General Convention of The Episcopal Church is meeting through July 3 in Salt Lake City, UT (Diocese of Utah). The Episcopal Church’s General Convention is held every three years, and is the bicameral governing body of the Church. It comprises the House of Bishops, with upwards of 200 active and retired bishops, and the House of Deputies, with clergy and lay deputies elected from the 108 dioceses and three regional areas of the Church, at more than 800 members.The video services of the daily Eucharist during General Convention 2015 have been produced by the Episcopal Diocese of Utah.Watch the Eucharist on the Media Hub here. https://livestream.com/accounts/12656718/events/3897940/videos/91209128 Press Release Service Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Knoxville, TN Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Cathedral Dean Boise, ID New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Martinsville, VA Associate Rector Columbus, GA Carolyn Finster says: Curate Diocese of Nebraska Featured Events Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Hopkinsville, KY Dr. Bonita Ann Palmer says: Rector Belleville, IL Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

From the mixed-use to the diff-use. Finally, almost everybody agrees that our cities should be compact, dense and programmatically diverse. Although there are quantitative nuances regarding these points, most of our efforts aim to consolidate a model of a city different from the positivism outlined in the Athens Chart. Rural migrations to urban centers overflowed imagined densities, forcing us to abandon the idea that there is a single program linked to large areas of land. Assuming this condition has led us to imagine different ways to swell and diversify the thickness of our cities. The large-scale constructions called Mixed-Use are an example of this line of work where buildings with diverse programs converge in a singlemproject. Today we have project techniques capable of establishing certain continuity between the proposed city model and large-scale constructions. However, in the range of the middle scale, this relationship has not been addressed in depth.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasThe Bonpland 2169 building tries to position itself in this debate, understanding in advance that its size will prevent it from reproducing organizational strategies linked to a larger scale of work. In this case, the starting point is to address the diversity of uses through spatial homogeneity. Instead of projecting a container to host previously established programs, a structure open to different appropriations is offered. A programmatically unstable but spatially specific environment, organized by means of five bays perpendicular to the dividing walls that delimit their technical aptitude at the same time that they offer a good margin of flexibility.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasAlthough our field of action is circumscribed to the area of material organization, our field of reflection overflows it until we can accurately report it. The attention towards the new ways of using the city, the updating of its programs or the appearance of hybrid instances among the uses that we already know, are here moments of vital importance. The main argument of this project is developing a sensitivity according to the objects that each unit will occupy and assuming the challenge of each spatial appropriation allows us to see a new way of living.Save this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Javier Agustín RojasProject gallerySee allShow lessSeven New Landmarks Designed for Copenhagen’s Amager Nature ParkArchitecture NewsPhotographer Yueqi “Jazzy” Li Captures the Dynamism of Mexico City’s UNAM CampusArticlesProject locationAddress:Bonpland 2169, C1425FWA CABA, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

So far, there are 2 confirmed cases.Measles infection typically causes a rash, fever, conjunctivitis (red eyes),  cough or runny nose.  The rash usually starts four days after the other symptoms. The rash starts on the forehead, spreads behind the ears and then down the trunk.  Measles infection can have serious complications such as pneumonia, seizures and encephalitis (inflammation of the brain). 1-2 people out of every 1,000 who become infected with measles will die.The best way to prevent measles infection is with 2 doses of the MMR vaccine. It is 99% effective at preventing measles infection. The first dose of the MMR is usually given to children at 12 months of age, with a second dose given at 4-5 years of age. Anyone born since 1978 who is unsure if they have received two doses of a measles containing vaccine, such as MMR, should speak with their GP. Most people born before 1978 have had measles infection and will not get measles again.While the majority of children in Donegal still receive the MMR vaccine, the numbers have been dropping slightly over the past few years. As soon as vaccination rates fall, old diseases re-emerge. This is why measles outbreaks are occurring in Ireland and across Europe. The MMR vaccine has been used for many years and is very safe.Measles is transmitted through direct contact with an infected person or through the air when the infected person coughs or sneezes.  If you suspect that you or your child has symptoms of measles, please call your GP and inform them. It is important that you do not visit your GP without first letting him or her know that you or your child may have measles. This is because you might be infectious to others at the GP surgery. Your GP will be able to make special arrangements for you to come in and see him or her and do tests to confirm your diagnosis.To prevent further infections, people who are diagnosed with measles are advised to stay away from school, college, work, and public places for four days following the onset of their rash.For more information on measles please see http://www.hpsc.ie/A-Z/VaccinePreventable/Measles/   Pinterest HSE warns of measles outbreak in Donegal Homepage BannerNews WhatsApp Google+ WhatsAppcenter_img Pinterest Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Twitter Facebook Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Publicans in Republic watching closely as North reopens furtherlast_img read more

They agreed that it will be nuclear energy that will “power” them and their children into the near future. By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… The fifth grade students at Troy Elementary School got a lesson on nuclear energy Tuesday as the old saying goes, “straight from the horse’s mouth.”Neecie Tarrant, senior communication specialist at Farley Nuclear Plant near Dothan, spoke to several classes about nuclear energy and the role that it will play in their lives 20 years from now.Tarrant told that students that what Farley Nuclear Plant does is “make electricity.” “In 20 years, this country’s energy needs will increase by 44 percent,” Tarrant said. “We will need an adequate energy source that is inexpensive and one that is good for the environment.”Coal, oil and natural gas are currently the largest sources of energy and they will last a long time, Tarrant said.The sun is a renewable energy source but it has not been developed except for special applications because of its high costs.So, because nuclear energy is relatively inexpensive and doesn’t put carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, it is at the forefront of future energy sources, Tarrant said.

The plant runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week and has generated more than 330 billion kilowatt hours of electricity.”Tarrant told the students that most of the electricity generated in the United States comes from coal at about 51 percent, with nuclear energy at 20 percent and gas at 16 percent. Only 2.3 percent of the nation’s electricity is generated by renewable sources.She polled the students who quickly named three forms of renewable energy sources– the sun, wind and water.
