Image source: Getty Images Peter Stephens | Wednesday, 12th February, 2020 | More on: MNDI SBRY No savings at 40? I’d buy these 2 bargain FTSE 100 stocks to retire on a passive income 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100’s past performance highlights its potential to boost your retirement prospects. For example, the index has delivered a high-single-digit annualised total return since inception.Despite its strong performance, there are a number of large-cap shares that seem to offer good value for money at the present time. As such, now could be a good time to kick-start your retirement plans through purchasing FTSE 100 stocks.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 large-cap shares that appear to offer good value for money. Buying them now at age 40, or over the long-term from any age, could improve your prospects of making a generous passive income in older age.Sainsbury’sBuying stocks while they trade on low valuations has historically been a sound means of improving your scope to make capital gains. As such, with Sainsbury’s (LSE: SBRY) having fallen by around 29% in the past year and it now trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10.7, it could offer long-term investment appeal.Certainly, its performance in the most recent quarter was disappointing. For example, its like-for-like (LFL) sales declined by 0.7%, while a large amount of promotional activity in the retail sector has failed to provide the business with improving margins.However, with Sainsbury’s continuing to invest in its online offering and in improving the customer experience through innovative new technology, it seems to be strengthening its market position. This is expected to lead to an improving financial performance over the next two years.In addition, its planned improvements in efficiency and expanded range of value products could help to improve its competitive position. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the business while it seems to offer a wide margin of safety.MondiAnother FTSE 100 stock that is experiencing an uncertain period is Mondi (LSE: MNDI). The packaging and paper business reported softer demand for its products in its most recent quarter, while prices for key paper grades weakened. This caused a fall in the company’s underlying profit of 18% versus the same quarter of the previous year, and is expected to contribute to a 9% drop in its bottom line in the full year.Looking ahead, Mondi will continue to deliver major investment in its asset base to further strengthen its long-term growth potential. It is also undergoing a restructuring of its business units, which could create a simpler operating model that benefits from greater efficiency.With the stock currently trading on a P/E ratio of 13.3, it seems to offer good value for money at the present time. It is forecast to post a rise in net profit of 7% next year, which could help to catalyse investor sentiment and may boost its share price over the coming years.

Photo: Episcopal Diocese of Texas[Episcopal Diocese of Texas] Galveston, Texas, Episcopal leaders gathered at the former site of the William Temple Episcopal Center (WTEC) on January 25, for the Service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance. In February, the Diocese of Texas will officially close on the sale of the property located at 417 Market St. and the community labyrinth will eventually be moved to Moody Methodist Church.Founded in 1963, WTEC’s purpose was to serve the medical school students at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Over the years, the building served as a chaplain training, community center, and as the spiritual home for many. After Hurricane Ike hit in September of 2008, WTEC became the host of Texas Episcopal Disaster Relief and Development, a volunteer rebuilding organization that performed repairs on more than 150 homes and completely renovated 60 homes over the course of two years.In 2013, activities associated with the William Temple Episcopal Center were relocated to Trinity Episcopal Church as the diocese prepared to sell the property. The sale will serve to replenish the William Temple Foundation, further benefiting the ministry to medical school students.The remembrance service featured sermons from the Rev. Canon John Newton, the Diocese’s canon for Christian formation, and from the Rev. Susan Kennard, rector of Trinity. After finishing the liturgy in the the building’s chapel, the group of around 20 people gathered outside to symbolically place memorial items at the foot of the cross.“Today we say goodbye to a building,” Newton said in his sermon. “But today what we say goodbye to is a building. But what we are not saying goodbye to is the ministry of the William Temple Center, which was here long before this building, and will continue long after this building ceases to be.”The Rev. Jeremiah Griffin now leads the WTEC at Trinity, which serves a free meal to students every Wednesday night, sometimes followed by “Theology on Tap,” a discussion of God and religion over coffee or beer at the local coffee house, two blocks from the church. The center is always open for students to study or pray.“We really want to provide a place for students to connect their vocation as healers with their own personal faith and identity,” Griffin said in a November 2013 interview. “We want to give them the opportunity to theologically reflect and engage in conversation with their classmates.”Naturally, the center and its activities focus around a Christian, Episcopal perspective, but Griffin says the students come from all faiths and traditions.“Primarily, we are mission of hospitality,” he said. “All of the students are busy, regardless of faith. We try to keep it accessible and open to all people. At the Theology on Tap group, we will talk about a theme like hope or incarnation or transformation, and these are things that everyone can relate to with whatever their religious background provides.”Fox 26 News, Houston, visited last summer to profile the work of the WTEC.“It is all about relationship here,” Griffin said. “There is a need to be creative with theological reflection. My favorite kind is the subversive kind, when people don’t even realize it is happening. They just encounter a question, and then they leave the evening with a thought in their mind that maybe rattles around a little bit and hopefully prods them to connect it with something that they are doing.”To learn more about the WTEC, you can find them on Facebook. Or you can email the Rev. Jeremiah Griffin ([email protected]). The center is located at 2216 Ball St. in Galveston.

Twitter ‘Liters for Life’ student campaign raises funds for global water crisis printFilm aficionados are mourning the death of Alan Rickman, an actor who deftly portrayed complex villains that audiences could not help but love.Rickman, who starred in films such as “Harry Potter,” “Die Hard” and “Love Actually,” died at age 69 on Thursday following a battle with cancer. He was perhaps best known for his role as Severus Snape in “Harry Potter.”Richard Allen, a TCU film professor, said Rickman’s legacy was based on his ability to portray villains that connected with audiences.“I’ve always loved his unique style, which is so cool because it’s so understated and so dry and has such emotion underneath,” he said. “He’ll play those villainous characters [so] that you believe he has a heart.”Allen said the characteristics of an actor’s legacy include the commercial and artistic success he has.“When we think about the actors that we’ve label as great, all-time actors like Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn and Charlie Chaplin, they made films that were commercially successful,” he said. “But they also made films where artistry was more important than commercial success.”Allen said he would remember the magic Rickman created on screen as Professor Severus Snape in the blockbuster Harry Potter films. But he said what made Rickman perfect for this “villainous” role was his ability to make the audience love him.“You’re able to watch Snape all that time and go, ‘Oh, he’s the bad guy, but is he?’” Allen said.Allen said Rickman’s role in “Love Actually,” showed the unique ability the actor had. Rickman played opposite of Emma Thompson and Heike Makatsch, portraying a married managing director of a design agency who, in the beginning, has an affair with his new secretary and later returns to his wife, ruining his marriage and family.“He plays a character that you really want to hate, but you know he’s feeling real pain over his decisions,” Allen said. “He really makes that character three-dimensional, so at the end, I think you’re supposed to be happy when he comes back.”Allen said there are actors that can perform as he did, but, for Rickman, the roles played by those actors will never be replicated.“What’s great about the characters that these actors play is that no one will replace them,” Allen said. “He’s one of those people.” + posts Linkedin ReddIt Fort Worth’s first community fridge program helps serve vulnerable neighborhoods Linkedin Kylie Walker is a junior Journalism major from Dallas, Texas.

RSF_en Central African RepublicAfrica April 6, 2021 Find out more Organisation Central African RepublicAfrica Receive email alerts RSF decries arbitrary blocking of two CAR news websites November 26, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Parliament passes law decriminalising press offences Follow the news on Central African Republic May 13, 2020 Find out more News December 13, 2019 Find out more Help by sharing this information to go further CAR policeman who shot reporter must be punished, RSF says Six years on, same unanswered questions about French journalist’s death in CAR News Reporters Without Borders today welcomed the passage of a law ending prison terms for press offences. The Central African Republic’s (RCA) transitional Parliament adopted the law on 25 November 2004.”RCA journalists can be proud to have led a peaceful and successful campaign (to decriminalise press offences), which is so important for the building of a genuine democracy,” said Reporters Without Borders. “RCA citizens, journalists, politicians and governments will soon reap the benefits of the law’s adoption, in terms of security, freedom and respect. We urge President François Bozizé not to obstruct this victory for democracy and to circulate the text (of the law) without delay,” the organisation added.The previous 1998 press law was particularly controversial. It included provisions for prison terms with no parole for “defamation” and the “publication of false news”. In 2002, National Assembly parliamentarians had voted to reject a reform of the law and maintained the repressive 1998 legislation on the books.The general outcry surrounding the Maka Gbossokotto affair in the summer of 2004 undoubtedly helped to convince President Bozizé of the urgent need to reform the Press Code. Gbossokotto was arrested on 8 July. The publication director of the privately-owned daily “Le Citoyen” and Reporters Without Borders correspondent spent one month in prison after a defamation complaint was filed against him by an associate of the president. After spending one month in detention in deplorable conditions, Gbossokotto finally received a one-year suspended prison sentence and a fine of 500,000 CFA francs (approx. US$1,000; 760 euros) for “public insults”.Gbossokotto’s arrest and detention were widely condemned, notably by the RCA Association of Private and Independent Newspaper Publishers (Groupement centrafricain des éditeurs de la presse privée et indépendante, GEPPIC). In a protest action, the group suspended publication of all of its media titles from 12 to 19 July. Following his 8 August release, Gbossokotto became one of the most vocal organisers of the Geppic and the RCA Journalists’ Union (Union des journalistes de Centrafrique, UJCA). He demanded that the government reform the Press Code, just as President Bozizé had promised when he came to power. GEPPIC also launched a “day without newspapers”, vowing to no longer publish newspapers on Fridays until the government decriminalised press offences. News News
