This is because research shows buying cheap shares can lead to high returns over the long term.However, this isn’t always guaranteed. As such, the strategy might not be suitable for all 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…Still, I’m comfortable with the level of risk and research required to find the right sort of businesses. And with that in mind, here are two cheap UK shares I’d buy for my portfolio today. Cheap UK sharesThe first company on my list is Reach (LSE: RCH). The publisher, which owns a broad selection of titles, including the Mirror and Daily Express newspapers, is navigating a challenging operating environment. Newspaper sales were already sliding before the pandemic and, over the past 12 months, this trend has only accelerated. But Reach hasn’t stood still. The company has been investing heavily in its online operation. As a result, this division is growing rapidly, offsetting some of the declines in the newspaper business. According to the company’s latest trading update, in the first four months of 2021, digital revenue grew 35%, while total print revenue was down 10.4%, and circulation eased 7.9%. Thanks to the booming digital business, overall revenues declined just 3.1%.Reach is targeting further growth. It had 6.2m site registrations at the end of April and wants to take that to 10m by 2022. It’s also slashing costs in an attempt to improve profitability.Based on current City growth estimates, the stock is trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 6.9. Even after taking into account all of the company’s problems, that looks cheap to me. Therefore, I’d buy Reach as part of my basket of cheap UK shares, even though the company is facing a significant challenge from falling print revenues. Rising home prices As well as Reach, I’d buy challenger bank OSB (LSE: OSB) for my portfolio of cheap UK shares. This company specialises in mortgage lending, particularly buy-to-let mortgage lending.Thanks to the strong UK housing market, borrower demand has been robust over the past 12 months. According to the company’s latest trading update, underlying net loans and advances were up 3% in the three months to March 31 to £19.6bn. For the year as a whole, City analysts reckon the group will report earnings growth of around 30%.Based on these projections, the stock is trading at a forward P/E of less than 8. I think this multiple looks cheap.The company is also committed to paying out 25% of its earnings as a dividend. So, on that basis, the shares could yield 3.8% this year, although that’s just a forecast at this stage. The most considerable risk the lender faces is the threat of a housing market slump. This could start with an interest rate hike, which may lead to loan losses at the bank. In this scenario, OSB may have to revisit its dividend plans. In addition, earnings may also come in below expectations, leading to a drop in the share price. Still, even after taking these risks into account, I’d buy the lender for my portfolio of cheap UK shares today.  Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

La Convention générale de l’Église épiscopale et la Conférence générale de l’Église méthodiste unie doivent approuver l’accord qui est l’aboutissement de 15 années d’exploration et de plus de 50 ans de dialogue officiel entre les deux églises. La prochaine Convention générale de l’Église épiscopale se tiendra en juillet 2018 à Austin (État du Texas). La Conférence générale de l’Église méthodiste aura lieu en 2020.La proposition de dix pages, intitulée « A Gift to the World, Co-Laborers for the Healing of Brokenness » [Un don pour le monde, en collaboration pour la guérison d’un monde déchiré] déclare qu’il « s’agit d’une initiative visant à rapprocher nos églises à travers une collaboration plus étroite dans la mission et le témoignage de l’amour de Dieu et à œuvrer ensemble pour la guérison des divisions entre les chrétiens pour le bien-être de tous ».Frank Brookhart, évêque du Montana, co-président pour l’Église épiscopale du dialogue et l’évêque Gregory V. Palmer, co-président pour l’Église méthodiste uni, ont écrit dans une récente lettre que « la relation forgée au fil de ces années de dialogue et la reconnaissance qu’il n’y a aucun empêchement théologique à l’unité, prépare le terrain pour la présente proposition préliminaire ».Il y aura dans les mois à venir des occasions de retours d’informations, de rencontres régionales et de débats sur la proposition, selon le le Communiqué de presse du 17 mai.« Nous vous encourageons à dépasser les cadres confessionnels pour créer de nouvelles relations et approfondir les relations existantes par l’étude en commun de ces documents et la prière mutuelle pour l’unité de nos églises », ont écrit Frank Brookhart et Gregory Palmer. « Nous pensons que cette proposition représente un témoignage significatif de l’unité et de la réconciliation dans un monde de plus en plus divisé et vous prions de vous joindre à nous pour poursuivre ces travaux ».De plus amples informations sur le sujet dont des documents historiques, sont disponibles ici.L’Église épiscopale définit la « pleine communion » comme « une relation entre des églises distinctes selon laquelle chacune reconnait l’autre comme une église catholique et apostolique respectant les fondamentaux de la foi chrétienne ». Les églises « deviennent interdépendantes tout en restant autonomes », déclare l’église.Le Comité de dialogue Église épiscopale-Église méthodiste unie qui a élaboré la proposition d’accord, explique que les deux confessions ne cherchent pas à fusionner mais qu’elles se « fondent sur un accord suffisant sur les éléments essentiels de la foi et de la constitution chrétiennes » qui permet, entre autres aspects de cet l’accord, l’interchangeabilité des ministères ordonnés.« Heureusement, aucune de nos deux églises ni des organes de gouvernance qui antérieurs, ne se sont officiellement condamnés les un les autres, ni ont officiellement remis en question la foi, les ordres ministériels ou les sacrements de l’autre église », a expliqué le groupe.La proposition épiscopale-méthodiste a également bénéficié du fait que les anglicans de toute la Communion anglicane et les méthodistes partout dans le monde sont en dialogue permanent, poursuit le groupe. Le dialogue a produit un rapport en 2015 intitulé « Into All the World: Being and Becoming Apostolic Churches  (Dans le monde entier : être et devenir des églises apostoliques) » qui décrit son état d’avancement. Cette publication a mis en lumière à cette époque la toute nouvelle relation de pleine communion entre les églises anglicane et méthodiste irlandaises et les mesures historiques concrètes prises en faveur d’un ministère interchangeable.La proposition de pleine communion épiscopale-méthodiste unie reconnaît que l’Église méthodiste unie « est l’une des diverses expressions du Méthodisme » et fait remarquer que les deux confessions ont soutenu un dialogue avec les églises méthodistes américaines historiquement noires depuis près de 40 ans. Elles collaborent également avec l’Église épiscopale méthodiste africaine (AME), l’Église épiscopale méthodiste africaine Zion (AME Zion) et l’Église épiscopale méthodiste chrétienne (CME) dans divers groupes œcuméniques.L’Église épiscopale et l’Église méthodiste unie ont ces dernières années adopté certaines mesures provisoires tendant à la pleine communion. Elles ont en 2006 conclu un Interim Eucharistic Sharing [Partage eucharistique provisoire], étape qui a permis au clergé des deux églises de partager la célébration de la Sainte Cène selon certaines directives.  En 2010, le groupe de dialogue a publié une synthèse de ses travaux théologiques intitulée « A Theological Foundation for Full Communion between The Episcopal Church and The United Methodist Church »(Fondement théologique pour la pleine communion entre l’Église épiscopale et l’Église méthodiste Unie).La proposition de pleine communion met l’accent sur les accords au niveau de la compréhension de chaque ordre de ministère. Les ministères des laïcs, diacres et prêtres de l’Église épiscopale et des anciens ou presbytres méthodistes unis (ancien est la traduction en anglais de presbytre) seraient tous considérés comme interchangeables, tout en étant régis par les « normes et la politie de chaque église ».Les deux églises ont une compréhension relativement similaire des évêques, selon la proposition.« Nous réaffirmons que le ministère des évêques dans l’Église méthodiste unie et l’Église épiscopale est une adaptation de l’épiscopat historique aux besoins et aux soucis du contexte postérieur à la révolution américaine », indique le dialogue dans la proposition. « Nous reconnaissons les ministères de nos évêques comme pleinement valides et authentiques ».L’Église épiscopale et l’Église méthodiste unie s’engageraient à ce que les futures consécrations d’évêques dans l’une comprennent la participation et l’imposition des mains par au moins trois évêques de l’autre et de partenaires de pleine communion qu’elles ont en commun, à savoir l’Église morave et l’Église évangélique luthérienne en Amérique.L’Église épiscopale est actuellement en pleine communion avec l’Église évangélique luthérienne en Amérique, l’Église Mar Thoma de Malabar en Inde, les Églises vieilles-catholiques de l’Union d’Utrecht, l’Église philippine indépendante, l’Église de Suède et les provinces nordiques et méridionales de l’Église morave. Elle poursuit également des entretiens bilatéraux officiels avec l’Église presbytérienne (États-Unis) et avec l’Église catholique romaine par l’intermédiaire de la Conférence des évêques des États-Unis.De plus amples informations sur le dialogue entre l’Église épiscopale et l’Église méthodiste unie sont disponibles ici.Les travaux du Dialogue épiscopal-méthodiste uni sont validés par deux résolutions de la Convention générale : 2015-A107 et 2006-A055.– La Révérende Mary Frances Schjonberg est rédacteur et journaliste pour l’Episcopal News Service.

Omani newspaper journalists freed pending outcome of appeal

first_img Receive email alerts Oman: newspaper editor held over article about pressure on judiciary News ©albaladoman RSF condemns Omani judicial persecution of independent daily August 2, 2016 Find out more Help by sharing this information Ibrahim Al-Maamari, the editor-in-chief of the Omani independent newspaper Azamn, and managing editor Youssef Al-Haj were released provisionally today by an court that will rule on their appeal on 7 November.Reporters Without Borders (RSF) nonetheless insists that the journalists should be released unconditionally and their newspaper, whose permanent closure was ordered in September, should be allowed to resume publishing.Al-Maamari and Al-Haj were freed after the appeal court, at their lawyers’ request, reduced the amount of bail to 2,000 rials (4,000 euros) from the 50,000 rials (110,000 euros) set by the court that convicted them. The third defendant in this case, Azamn local news editor Zaher Al-Abri, was already released conditionally on 22 August.“These three journalists have been released provisionally but they are guilty of no crime so the authorities should overturn their conviction and allow the newspaper to resume publishing,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “We also condemn the censorship of this case that has been imposed by the authorities. The media should be allowed to cover this appeal normally.”During today’s hearing, the court again prohibited the Omani media from publishing or broadcasting any report about the appeal hearings.Arrested in July and August in connection with their coverage of a case of alleged judicial corruption, the three journalists were convicted on 26 September. Al-Maamari and Al-Haj were sentenced to three years in prison, a heavy fine, and a ban on working as journalists for a year after their release. Al-Abri was sentenced to a year in prison and a fine, while the newspaper was banned for good.The Sultanate of Oman is ranked 125th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

She was flagged to security after a receptionist said her name was not on the access list for the club.Following her arrest, investigators suggested they had suspicions about potential ties to Chinese intelligence after finding Zhang in possession of several electronic devices, including one device that could be used to detect hidden cameras.Zhang was never formally charged with espionage, however, and in a statement following her verdict she re-asserted her belief that she had done nothing wrong.During her trial, Zhang represented herself after rejecting the court’s offer for a public defender.She was admonished several times by Judge Roy Altman for instances of bizarre behavior, including complaints that she was feeling “sick and dizzy,” and claims that she was unable to hear several of Altman’s statements to her.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
