Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The market recently experienced one of its most severe crashes in history. As such, buying FTSE 100 shares in the current environment may seem like a risky prospect. However, these blue-chip companies have the potential to deliver significantly higher returns than other assets over the long run.Therefore, now could be a great time to take advantage of the recent market slump and snap up FTSE 100 shares on the cheap. Here are two large-cap companies that appear to offer value after recent declines.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…FTSE 100 shares on offerThe government’s decision to close building sites in response to the coronavirus crisis hurt sentiment towards homebuilders such as Berkeley Group (LSE: BKG). As a result, shares in the FTSE 100 builder have fallen nearly 20% this year.Clearly, the outlook for the UK housing market remains uncertain in the near term. Nevertheless, over the long run, the market should recover as it remains structurally undersupplied.Further, government initiatives such as the help to buy scheme and low-interest rates should help drive demand in the years ahead. These initiatives could help demand return to pre-crisis highs relatively quickly.The post-coronavirus economy may look very different from the one we have today, but people will always need houses. This suggests that while Berkeley’s earnings might remain volatile in the short run, growth should pick up over the medium term.So, the company could be a profitable FTSE 100 investment over the coming years.Defensive investmentDefensive FTSE 100 shares, such as Compass Group (LSE: CPG), could also produce attractive returns over the long run. City analysts are expecting this company’s earnings to fall by around 26% this year. That’s a significant drop, and these forecasts seem to have terrified investors. The stock is off approximately 40% this year.However, while the group might face an uncertain few months ahead, the world’s largest catering organisation almost certainly has a bright future. People always need to eat. And Compass, as the world’s largest caterer, can provide the best food at the lowest cost.This implies that when the global economy begins to recover, Compass is well-placed to capitalise on the recovery. Its size should also help the business.For the past few years, the FTSE 100 corporation has a strong track record of acquiring smaller peers. This has helped the company grow sales at around 8% per annum for the past six years.The current economic situation may mean many of the group’s smaller competitors are struggling to survive. This could allow the more substantial business to sweep down and pick them up, acquiring growth at a reasonable price.Considering all of the above, now could be a great time to take advantage of the market’s short-term nature and snap up shares in Compass. The company appears to have all the hallmarks of a business that should prosper over the long run.

2019 Rugby World Cup Bronze Final: New Zealand 40-17 Wales

first_imgFly-half Richie Mo’unga rounded off the scoring, getting an unconverted try from ten metres out, but at the end the score didn’t matter. The crowd got the chance to sound their appreciation for the departing men, who cut emotional figures at the end – perhaps the biggest cheers reserved for coaches Hansen and Gatland.Star manMany All Blacks fans will be sad to see Ben Smith go and he rewarded their support with a fine parting display. His first try was a whip-smart change of direction and the score saw him surpass Jonah Lomu on the list of all-tim All Blacks try-scorers.His second saw him get totally dismiss Tomos Williams with big hand-off and danced in. As the game tore on he was still coming off his wing to get involved, risking heavy traffic to make carries. If you can’t be in a World Cup final one last time, it is the kind of farewell you would want.Seventh heaven: Josh Adams gets his seventh try of the tournament (Getty Images)The reactionAll Blacks coach Steve Hansen said: “Firstly, I’d just like to say how proud I am of our team. There was a lot of external talk about not wanting to play this game. We’ve come off an extremely disappointing result against England, where we got beaten by a team that played better than us on the day, but we’ve come back and showed some real character and commitment to the jersey, so hopefully we’ve made a lot of New Zealanders proud.“I’d like to commend Wales, they came to play and it was a good game of footy. The game is bigger than all of us and we’re continually trying to capture people to become part of it.“If you come with intent to play and look to try to score tries, like both teams did today, we can capture more and more people and get them excited about the game.“Lastly, I’d like to wish England and South Africa all the very best tomorrow. We’ll have a new world champion and we’ll commend them for their efforts because it’s a very hard tournament to win.”Wales boss Warren Gatland said: “I hope that what we have achieved in the last 12 years, they continue to build on that because what we have done and what we have achieved, it would break my heart if Wales went back into the doldrums.”The teams New Zealand: Beauden Barrett, Ben Smith, Ryan Crotty (Jordie Barrett 56), Sonny Bill Williams (Anton Lienert-Brown 56), Rieko Ioane; Richie Mo’unga, Aaron Smith (Brad Webber 56); Joe Moody (Atu Moli 56), Dane Coles (Liam Coltman 24), Nepo Laulala (Angus Ta’avao 56), Brodie Retallick, Scott Barrett (Patrick Tuipulotu 60), Shannon Frizzell (Matt Todd 60), Sam Cane, Kieran Read (capt).Tries: Moody 5, Barrett 13, B Smith 32, Crotty 42, Mo’unga 76. Con: Mo’unga 6, 14, 33, 43.Wales: Hallam Amos; Owen Lane, Jonathan Davies, Owen Watkin (Hadleigh Parkes 60), Josh Adams; Rhys Patchell (Dan Biggar 46), Tomos Williams (Gareth Davies 46); Nicky  Smith (Rhys Carre, 44), Ken Owens (Elliot Dee 44), Dillon Lewis (Wyn Jones 77), Adam Beard, Alun Wyn Jones (capt)(Jake Ball 56), Justin Tipuric, James Davies, Ross Moriarty (Aaron Shingler 46).Tries: Amos 20, Adams 59. Con: Patchell 21, Biggar 61. Pen: Patchell 27. Squeezing in: Ben Smith gets his second score of the night (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS 2019 Rugby World Cup Bronze Final: New Zealand 40-17 WalesHead-to-headP – 35New Zealand wins – 32Wales wins – 3Did you know?These two have met four times in the World Cup, with the All Blacks winning all four times.New Zealand have won two out of three previous bronze finals. In 1991 they defeated Scotland, in 1999 they lost to South Africa and in 2003 they defeated France.Warren Gatland’s last outing with Wales marks the 15th time a head coach has taken on his native country in a World Cup match. Of  14 other occasions (13 different coaches), only one was successful. Eddie Jones led England to victory over Australia in this World Cup.New Zealand have only once lost back-to-back RWC matches. In 1999, they lost to France in the semis, then lost to South Africa in the bronze final.In a nutshellIt may have been the game no one wanted, but this third-place play-off served as a victory lap for so many figures who have thrilled us in the Test arena over the years.Ben Smith got two tries to send him on the way to France. Ryan Crotty had his score. Sonny Bill Williams and Kieran Read had their last win in black and a way to say thank you to departing coach Steve Hansen. Wales were still swinging too, of course, and Warren Gatland will appreciate his charges putting in one last tilt before he heads home to New Zealand to take over at the Chiefs.But it has been an exhausting and injury-riddled end to this World Cup for a Wales side so close to making the final. If they had won in the semi would likely have metaphorically been on one leg, and they faced a Kiwi group full of running in Tokyo. Six tries to two here tells you a bit of that story.Prop Joe Moody started it all off, galloping in for the opener in open space after Read and Brodie Retallick made nice touches. An Aaron Smith cut with Beauden Barrett left Adam Beard and Dillon Lewis stuck in the mud as the full-back cut through in ruthless fashion for his own score to be 14 points up early. The All Blacks would play front-foot rugby for large swathes of this match.Gatland’s Wales are tough, though.Hitting up: Hallam Amos takes contact(Getty Images)Lewis almost made up for it soon after, crashed over the line from close, but he was held up. Wales could go back and build again from a another maul and Tomos Williams worked his forwards round the corner, though it was all so slow as All Blacks slammed into tackles. Patient ’til that point, Rhys Patchell got a ball on the drift with Williams retreating, and threw a pearler of a cut-out pass to Hallam Amos who took it to the house for a score.Patchell converted.The running went the other way again. A switchblade line from Ben Smith gave New Zealand their third try. It all came from Retallick thieving ball from a ruck, a  Read basketball pass over the top and then Smith deciding to halt his run and then completely change direction. He eventually tumbled over in a tangle of bodies.The veteran – playing his last game for the All Blacks before heading to play for Pau – had a second try at the stroke of half-time. He took ball from his old Highlanders mucker Aaron Smith, and with little touchline real estate to work with, he pushed out a hand to keep Tomos Williams at bay and grab another.After a break in which the emperor of Japan got a standing ovation, the valedictorian run for departing All Blacks continued.Ryan Crotty lashed onto an offload to go over, and then everyone thought Ben Smith had his hat-trick. But while he threw off an Owen Lane tackle and powered to the line, it was chalked off for the build up – Sonny Bill Williams lobbed a pass over the top but the touch before it got to Smith meant it was a knock-on.Familiar sight: Sonny Bill Williams throws an offload (Getty Images)Both teams rang the changes and the crowd got to sound their appreciation for towering Welsh presence Alun Wyn Jones. And Josh Adams got his seventh with a pick and go, of all thing. He was clearly hungry for more but the ball could never be worked to him in space.center_img The All Blacks won the third-place play-off in Tokyo this Friday Follow our Rugby World Cup homepage which we update regularly with news and features.Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

US should not adopt “information warfare” approach

first_img Receive email alerts May 15, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 US should not adopt “information warfare” approach WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists On 30 April, a committee reported the US International Communications Reform Act to the House of Representatives for further consideration. This bill aims to restructure the US federal government-funded international media and, in particular, to overhaul the Broadcasting Board of Governors, which oversees the State Department’s overseas broadcasting.If the Senate approves the version passed by the House and if President Obama signs it into law, Voice of America would henceforth be required to support US foreign policy.The bill’s authors accuse Voice of America of abandoning its duty to support US policy over the years, becoming “too” independent and even making “anti-American” statements.”Historically, VOA served US diplomacy by countering Nazi and then Chinese and Soviet propaganda. In 1976, President Gerald Ford enshrined the principle of “accurate, objective, and comprehensive” broadcasting in VOA’s charter. VOA was now promoted as an independent news source in regions where censorship prevailed.These principles are retained in the new bill, but VOA’s reports must also be “consistent with and promote the broad foreign policies of the United States.” There is clearly a danger that this new concept of “promoting” US foreign policy could affect VOA’s content.The International Communications Reform Act reverses the priorities of the 1994 law currently in effect. Programming focused on the United States and its foreign policy would be more important that providing independent news and information to the population of countries where it is otherwise inaccessible.“We urge the US authorities not to transform media such as Voice of America, Radio Free Europe and Radio Free Asia into diplomatic communication tools,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “It is legitimate that these media should offer a US vision of freedom. But encouraging or forcing them to support diplomatic positions and to reflect national interests means adopting the attitudes of information warfare and this would be extremely regrettable.”As well as defining the VOA’s principles, the very first article of the International Communications Reform Act says that the US international broadcasting “exists to advance the United States’ interests and values.”It is crucial that journalists working for the network of media depending on US funding should not be obliged to reflect US interests while “presenting accurate, objective, and comprehensive news and information (…) to societies that lack a free media.”Like VOA in Iran, the local language services of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty constitute one of the very few sources of independent news and information in countries such as Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan. These media could not continue to provide the same valuable service if they took their orders from the US government.

Prosecutor requests 14 years for reporter who criticized local officials

first_img August 25, 2020 Find out more Organisation News to go further RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the case that the state prosecutor in Asht, in the northern province of Sugd, presented in court yesterday against the journalist Makhmadyusuf Ismoilov (Махмадюсуф Исмоилов) and by the 16-year jail term he requested (which would be reduced to 14 years under a recent amnesty law).The local correspondent of the newspapers Nuri Zindagi and Istiklol, Ismoilov has been held since 23 November 2010.“Everything about this prosecution smacks of political revenge rather than normal judicial proceedings,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The sentence requested is out of all proportion to the charges against Ismoilov. Such a harsh sentence would be a turning point in Tajikistan’s recent history and would deal a terrible blow to its already fragile freedom of expression. “Although this journalist has been in provisional detention for more than 10 months, the investigators have still been unable to produce any convincing evidence for the charges against him. We reiterate our call for his immediate release and the withdrawal of all the charges.”Ismoilov is charged with defamation (under article 135 of the criminal code), insult (article 136),inciting hatred (article 189.2) and embezzlement (article 250). The first three charges were confirmed at a hearing two weeks ago on the basis of an “expert linguistic analysis” of newspaper stories by Ismoilov in which he criticized the prosecutor, the Asht district deputy chief, and other local officials and representatives.The media were barred from the hearing at which the court received the “expert analysis” (conducted by a government offshoot) of Ismoilov’s articles, which in fact were well within the bounds of responsible free expression.The embezzlement charge is based on a statement by a relative of Ismoilov that was later retracted. The relative, who works for the local government, allegedly gave Ismoilov some old planks that the local administration was no longer using. According to Nuriddin Karshiboyev, the head of the National Association of Independent Media of Tajikistan (NANSMIT), several witnesses confirm the donation of the planks, which were worth less than 50 dollars.Ismoilov is being held in solitary confinement and his health is deteriorating. The prosecutor yesterday nonetheless requested that he should be subjected to a “severe regime” while serving his jail sentence.Reporters Without Borders and NANSMIT addressed an open letter about the Ismoilov case to President Emomali Rakhmon on 7 September, urging him to guarantee due process and respect for the presumption of innocence. In particular, they requested Ismoilov’s conditional release, an additional investigation and the trial’s transfer to a different location. No reply has so far been received.Reporters Without Borders points out that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, to which Tajikistan belongs, promotes strict principles for judicial proceedings against the media: that proceedings should be civil (not criminal), sentences should be proportional to the offence and should not affect the journalists’ ability to work normally, and public figures must tolerate criticism.The court is expected to issue its verdict at the next hearing, due to be held on 3 October.
