Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100 has staged a small recovery from its recent market crash. However, the index is still down around 25% year-to-date. Some stocks are stuck with even more significant declines.Therefore, while some companies have seen a substantial recovery in their shares over the past few weeks, there’s still a wide range of stocks that trade on low valuations. Over the long run, these investments could offer recovery potential and yield high returns for investors.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 my top three FTSE 100 value stocks to buy now.FTSE 100 value stocksAviva (LSE: AV) recently told shareholders it wouldn’t pay them a dividend in June. Instead, the firm is potentially delaying it until the fourth quarter of 2020. This is disappointing. But it could be an excellent opportunity for long-term investors.Having fallen by 47% since the start of the year, Aviva’s share price appears to offer a wide margin of safety. It now trades on a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of around 0.6, which is relatively low compared to many of its industry peers. The insurance industry P/B sector average is 1.1.Because Aviva is one of the UK’s largest pension managers, its financial performance is likely to be less impacted by the current lockdown than many of its FTSE 100 index peers.And while the firm has put dividends on ice for when things return to normal, the company’s yield could hit 13%. This suggests the stock could offer excellent value for money as well as an attractive income return.Unloved investmentShares in Barclays (LSE: BARC) have fallen around 55% since the beginning of the year. Investors have been dumping shares in the FTSE 100 bank due to the uncertain economic outlook facing the wider industry.A combination of weak business confidence and low-interest rates could hit the bank’s earnings and lead to losses in the near term. However, Barclays’ strong balance sheet puts it in a relatively stable position to overcome the current economic uncertainty.Even though its recovery may not be smooth or swift, Barclays is now trading at one of its lowest levels since the darkest days of the financial crisis. Shares in the bank are dealing at a P/B ratio of 0.2, half of the banking sector average.With this being the case, the stock appears to offer a wide margin of safety. These numbers suggest Barclays could deliver an attractive return for long-term investors from current levels.Income championM&G (LSE: MNG) has seen its share price slide 47% year-to-date. The FTSE 100 asset and pension manager’s outlook is highly uncertain at present. However, it has a substantial amount of cash and a solid balance sheet. This should provide some protection against the unprecedented challenges facing the financial services sector.Looking ahead, the asset manager’s shares could remain unpopular among investors in the short run. But M&G’s size, as well as its reputation among investors around the world, should help it weather the storm and generate a strong recovery when things return to normal.What’s more, unlike many of its peers, M&G hasn’t yet announced a dividend suspension.After recent declines, the stock offers a yield of 14%. It’s also trading at a discount P/B of 0.6, providing a wide margin of safety as well as income appeal at current levels.

The American speedster talks activism, alcohol testing and seeing the world LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Downtime with… USA sevens star Perry BakerDo you have any nicknames? Oh yeah. Speedstick, P-Bakes, Shake ‘n Bake… I guess I’m one of those guys who gets lots of nicknames.What’s your funniest moment on the pitch? I was captain for a tournament and we were playing Scotland in Cape Town. There was a loose ball on the ground and I tried to kick it away. Danny Barrett yelled, “Don’t do that, just kill it!” If I could jump on it I would but I was just trying to get it out.Mark Robertson (Scotland) walks by and was like, “Come on, you’re supposed to know this, you’re the captain…” We all started laughing.If you could be stuck in a lift with anyone, who would it be? If it’s anyone I’d say Dick Gregory. He was an activist for the black community. He was also a comedian. He died around three years ago, but I would say him because he was such a smart a guy that he’d make you think. I loved his brain.Is it important for influential figures to highlight issues? To a certain extent. I feel like issues can be heard more due to the calibre of the player talking or the platform that he or she may have.What’s your most embarrassing moment on the pitch? When I started playing rugby I didn’t wrap a player up in the tackle. I did an American Football-style dive into his legs and everyone went crazy. My coach ran onto the field and said, “This is his first game, he don’t know!” But I saw this big guy running, pretty fast, and I just came from the side and dived into his legs. I didn’t know I had to actually wrap him up!On the sevens series, I was going for a try and stepped out of bounds, and another time against Wales a player knocked the ball out my hands when I was about to score a try.What grinds your gears? If you text my phone, I may hit call instead of replying, to get it out of the way. If you then don’t answer the phone that annoys me.You played American Football. Do you follow other sports?I watch basketball and a little tennis here and there. My wife and stepson are huge baseball fans, so I don’t mind that. But it’s more that there are athletes I root for. So I’d say the San Francisco Giants as I like their catcher, Buster Posey, and some others. What’s been your biggest waste of money? I do it all the time! I’d say the 500 bucks I spent on a pair of headphones that I probably used one time and then didn’t like them.Who would be your three dream guests at a dinner party? I was a huge Kobe Bryant fan, so I’d want to talk to him about the sports side. I love Rihanna’s music and had a huge crush on her. And then Denzel Washington. I’d want to talk with him about his acting career and the Hollywood world.What’s the worst job you’ve had? I worked at a report centre where drug users would come in. I had to take samples of their urine to send out to check if they’d had alcohol. That part was really disgusting!Do you still want to join the police after rugby? I did when I was younger but now I want to go into coaching. But I watch a show called The First 48 and I wouldn’t mind spending a day with homicide detectives. I find it so interesting.Do you enjoy seeing the world? When I started in sevens, my mom used to tell me to send postcards and take pictures. I said, “Mom, you want to live it through me but I would love to take you.” My parents have now been to a few places they’d never dreamed of going to. It’s so cool that I got to do that and I want to give other people an opportunity to do that too.Flyover: Perry Baker scores a try during the Rio Olympics in 2016 (Getty Images)Ever had any culture shocks? When I went to Brazil for the Olympics, that was a shock. Sometimes in different parts of Cape Town there is. Everywhere has bad areas but it’s so different when you take yourself outside. You must look outside the box. I try to every time I travel somewhere. I want to get the culture, I want that experience. I don’t want to see what tourists see all the time.I’ve been to Tokyo before. I want to take my family around and see it at the Olympics. Mom is big on watching the news and thinking everything is that way and I say, “No, it’s totally different when you’re there.” I’d love my family to get outside the box and explore a bit.What would you like to achieve outside of rugby? I’m just living day by day. I want to get a home with my family instead of renting. But I’m married, have kids and I’m happy playing rugby!

‘Just Margaret, just love’ July 5, 2012 at 10:26 pm So I’m walking down the street with Cardinal William “The Terminator” Levada, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (yes, before anyone trips over the hem of their alb in their rush to remind us, the congregation that used to be known as the INQUISITION!) and we pass a bookstore and I says to him, I says, “Your Em, can we stop in here and look around for a book on the Catholic Church’s teachings on sexuality?” and he says to me, he says, “Sure!” So in we goes.While there, I hold up a copy of the Kama Sutra and I says to Bill, I says, “How about this?” and Bill says to me, he says, “Well, that’s not really representative of the Church’s teachings on human sexuality.” Then I hold up a copy of “How to Join the Mile High Club: Making the Friendly Skies a Little Friendlier,” and I says to Bill, I says, “How about this?” and Bill says to me, he says, “Well, that’s not really representative of the Church’s teachings on human sexuality.” Then I hold up a copy of “Just Love: A Framework For Christian Sexual Ethics” and I says to Bill, I says, “How about this?” and Bill says to me, he says, “Well, that’s not really representative of the Church’s teachings on human sexuality” and I says to Bill, I says, “But Billy, how CAN that BE? This here book is by a ROMAN CATHOLIC NUN! Won’t people think that a book by a Roman Catholic nun about human sexuality is reflective of the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings on human sexuality? Won’t people be CONFUSED?” and Bill says to me, he says, “Not if we explain that this book isn’t really representative of the Church’s teachings on human sexuality.”And that, dear Sara, is all that happened. For those who cared, the Holy See clarified that Sister Farley’s book was not representative of the Church’s teaching on human sexuality. For those who don’t care, well, they don’t care, do they?Frankly, given that you’ve managed to ignore both Leo XIII’s “Apostolicae Curae” and Blessed John Paul II’s “Ordinatio Sacerdotalis,” I find myself puzzled by your indignation. Press Release Service Rector Washington, DC The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group James Shannon says: Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Smithfield, NC [Episcopal News Service] I am not a Roman Catholic. I am a cradle Episcopalian. In fact I am an Episcopal priest, who studied theology and ethics at Yale Divinity School, which is how I know Sister Margaret Farley.Until three weeks ago, most people in secular and even religious circles had not heard of Farley, author of “Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics.” Unfortunately, those unfamiliar with Farley’s work will now have a first impression of her that may be colored by the Vatican’s denouncement that said her book “affirms positions that are in direct contradiction with Catholic teaching in the field of sexual morality” and therefore could cause confusion and “grave harm to the faithful.”Farley has stated herself that she never intended for the book to be “an expression of current official Catholic teaching.” I believe it is in fact often the case that the church’s (Catholic, Protestant or otherwise) “official teaching” on human sexuality has caused grave harm to the faithful. I would argue that Farley’s contributions to the field of Christian sexual ethics have done more to strengthen and ground the spiritual and sexual lives of Christian believers in justice and love than most “official church teaching.”In her lectures, in her written words, and in very self, Farley embodies justice, compassion, faithful questioning, and love that has put a recognizable face on God for many. I watched her give my female Catholic friends back their faith tradition and I watched them tearfully accept the gift they were not sure they would be able to receive. Her teaching and her care spoke to who I was as a person, a female, bisexual, Christian person, struggling to discern for myself if I could continue to find a home in my own Episcopal/Anglican tradition (still in the midst of our own struggles over gender, race and sexual orientation).More than once she gave me back my own faith and vocation when I thought it was slipping away. There were times when I did not know if I could accept the massive responsibility that comes with ordained life. There were times when I did not know if I could devote myself to an institution that saw my life as an “issue.” I did not know if I could give my life to a church that is “not of one mind” in terms of how they will allow me to express my call to ministry or if they will allow me to be married in my own house of God.Farley helped me to see that our Christian tradition is grounded in goodness and justice and she helped me to find a place I could stand on the inside. She showed me that I could be faithful, ask questions, and push boundaries and that there was a place for me at the table. Her scholarship is beyond reproach, but it is her pastor’s heart that spoke to my heart so I could hear, “You are beloved.”“Just Love” is the culmination of years of work that led Farley to create a framework for how to be in relationships, specifically sexual relationships that are based on “justice in loving and in the actions that flow from that love.” For years the church has been experiencing a widening divide between who we say we are and how we act. We say we are accepting, loving, compassionate followers of a God who came to bring healing and freedom. Then we exclude, reject, harm and oppress. People are not stupid. They see the incongruities. And they have been wounded. The church has wounded so many people. Yet the church keeps wounding, going after its most faithful members because they cannot see beyond their own clutches at power.I grieve any personal pain that Farley has experienced over this ordeal. But as a clergy friend of mine posted to Facebook the other day, “If Vatican censure of Margaret Farley means that more people will read a book as wise, loving, and powerful as JUST LOVE, then I think the Holy Spirit is at work. More people might just come to realize that there is such a thing as a relevant, reverent Christian sexual ethic.”I personally am glad that out of this misguided move by men in power who have yet to see the light, more people will come to know Margaret Farley and the powerful witness for justice and love that she is.— The Rev. Canon Sara Shisler is canon for spiritual formation at the Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation in Baltimore, Maryland. She received a Master of Divinity in 2008 and a Master of Sacred Theology with a concentration in Ethics in 2009, both from Yale Divinity School. Father Steven A. Scarcia says: June 28, 2012 at 10:11 pm A someone who knew you at St. Mark’s On the Hill, I am very proud of you, Sarah. I think that you are dealing with the “massive responsibility that comes with ordained life” as well as any cleric, and much better than most. Youth Minister Lorton, VA June 29, 2012 at 5:55 pm I believe that Sister Farley is in the best of company with those who have been condemned because their thoughts have not followed the “party catholick.” Having been a priest for almost 40 years, I have come to the conclusion that if the church can’t control something, it inevitably condemns it. Sister Farley being a scholar, a thinker, a teacher, a person in tune with her conscience as well as being a woman of faith, can by those very attributes be a threat to those in authority in her church. The scholars of the Roman church see her words sending the “faithful” the wrong message. Though the sister didn’t write her book with the intention of needing an Imprimatur, it was meant to give an open and honest discussion about morality & sexuality. I remember as a young person, my friends who attended the Roman church used to gather at back of the church, where there was posted a listing of which movies the Roman church thought were fine or were objectionable – it was called the Legion of Decency. In actuality, the movies that the church found “objectionable” were the ones that the kids tried to go see. It was as if the church pointed the kids in the opposite direction of where the church intended. I don’t mean that the Church shouldn’t teach about morality or loving sexuality. I believe its main teaching is about human love and how best, as Christian people, should we love one another. The Church has always been good at condemning, excommunicating, damning & silencing. How about listening to Christ’s words in the Holy Scripture; words of forgiveness, joy, compassion & love instead of how we can best manage & keep the institutional church together & the people submissive to clerical authority & threats. Oh, by the way, I recently heard the rumor that the earth is not the center of the universe – can that be? Don’t let the church authorities learn about it! I heard that Galileo is on the church’s most wanted list too! Blessings Sister Farley!

Data collection from Dr Beth Breeze’s study into what makes a great fundraiser is now almost complete.More that 1,200 fundraisers have completed the online survey, which included questions about personal and professional backgrounds as well as a personality test and an emotional intelligence scale.This was followed up by 40 in-depth interviews with successful fundraisers – defined as those leading large fundraising departments and/or peer-recognised excellence such as award recipients.Final interviews are now being arranged, and Dr Breeze has asked anyone wishing to take part to contact her at the University of Kent.The results of the study – which has been funded with a grant from the Leverhulme Trust – will be published in a book from Policy Press in early 2017 called ‘The New Fundraisers: who organises generosity in contemporary society?’.

As we commemorate the 49th anniversary of the Attica Uprising of 1971, the Prisoners Solidarity Committee of Workers World Party is inspired to once again raise the name of our comrade George Jackson. A revolutionary philosopher and communist militant, Jackson’s writings have inspired workers on both sides of the prison walls for decades. His assassination in California’s Soledad State Prison on Aug. 21, 1971, set off a chain of events that led to prisoners at Attica organizing their own historic rebellion just a few weeks later.His words remain relevant: “Settle your quarrels, come together, understand the reality of our situation, understand that fascism is already here, that people are already dying who could be saved, that generations more will live poor butchered half-lives if you fail to act. Do what must be done, discover your humanity and your love in revolution.”This September 23 would have been the 79th birthday of Jackson, one of the leaders of the Black Panther Party.
