Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Even though some UK shares have rebounded following the 2020 stock market crash, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 continue to trade significantly below their price levels from earlier this year.As such, there may be opportunities to buy high-quality stocks with £5k, or any other amount, while they trade at cheap prices. Over time, they could generate high returns as the stock market recovers. This could improve your financial outlook, and allow you to build a surprisingly large Stocks and Shares ISA in the coming years.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…Stock market recovery potentialA stock market recovery may seem to be a distant prospect for many investors that could dissuade them from purchasing UK shares at the present time. However, even if there are further challenges for the economy and for companies in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, the long-term outlook for equities seems to be bright.For example, since its inception in 1984, the FTSE 100 has recorded an annualised total return of around 8%. The FTSE 250’s total return is even higher, with it pushing towards a double-digit annualised total return since inception. The indexes have achieved these levels of performance despite experiencing severe economic recessions and bear markets along the way. Therefore, even if there are further declines, and potentially a second market crash, the long-term prospects for the stock market appear to be very positive.Furthermore, low interest rates and stimulus packages such as quantitative easing could boost the prospects for UK shares. After the most recent major recession during the global financial crisis, an accommodative monetary policy contributed to rising asset prices. A similar scenario could follow the recent market crash and allow the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 to produce strong recoveries.Buying UK shares todayAssuming that UK shares offer an annualised total return of 8% over the long run, building a portfolio of stocks today could be a sound move from a return perspective. For example, investing £5k at such a return over a period of 30 years could lead to a portfolio valued in excess of £50k. And, by continuing to invest over the coming months at a time when stock market volatility could be high, you may be able to build an even larger portfolio over the long run to improve your financial prospects.Of course, buying stocks in a Stocks and Shares ISA is a logical approach to take. ISAs are cheap to open and administer, and offer tax-efficiency as well as flexibility in terms of when capital can be withdrawn. Over time, tax-efficient accounts such as an ISA can have a positive impact on your financial prospects, and may help to provide a further boost to your portfolio alongside the stock market’s likely recovery after its recent market crash.

Reporters Without Borders has urged Algerian courts to dismiss a case against journalist Hassan Bourras, jailed for two years on 6 November then temporarily freed on 2 December after the plaintiff failed to appear in court.The case, which also saw Bourras banned from practising his profession for five years, constituted “one of the worst violations of press freedom in Algeria in years,” said Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders.Bourras, correspondent in El Bayadh, western Algeria, for dailies including the Oran regional paper El Djazaïri and national daily El Youm, was jailed for defamation by a local court over two articles about corruption he wrote for El Djazaïri. A court in Saida temporarily released him on 2 December at the request of his lawyers. Since the plaintiff did not show up for the case, it was postponed until 23 December.Calling for the case to be dismissed, Ménard said “Bourras should be given back his freedom and be allowed to resume work as a journalist as soon as possible. It would be a travesty of justice for a journalist to be sentenced so severely for defamation when he was only doing his job.” The journalist, who also works for the Algerian League for the Defence of Human Rights, had revealed in one article that the wife of the local prosecutor had forged an administrative document to get herself hired. In another article he revealed the existence of a land scandal implicating ranking officials in El Bayadh.Bourras has kept all the evidence in the two cases and has testimonies that confirm his claims.

This was the initial theory but it was then ruled out because nothing was taken from his apartment in the western city of Guayaquil where his body was found on 24 February with multiple stab wounds.According to the latest information provided to the national press by the prosecutor’s office, Navarrete was tortured and killed for refusing to give intruders the combination to his safe. A warrant was issued on 21 March for the arrest of a suspect known as Francisco Jurado Mosquera, who has not yet been located.Navarrete edited the Quito-based daily El Telégrafo from 2000 until 2007, when he began editing the Guayaquil-based free daily La Calle.______________________________________29.02.08 – Robbery ruled out as motive in fatal stabbing of El Telégrafo’s former editorReporters Without Borders calls on the authorities to shed light on all aspects of the murder of newspaper editor Carlos Navarrete, who was found dead in his home in the western city of Guayaquil on the night of 24 February. The police originally thought robbery was the motive, but they have now ruled that out. Navarrete had edited the Guayaquil-based free daily La Calle since last year. Before that, he had edited the Quito-based daily El Telégrafo since 2000.“There is still no indication of the motive for this especially gruesome murder and, in particular, no evidence has emerged to suggest that it was linked to Navarrete’s activities as a newspaper editor,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Ecuadorean press has lost one of its leading lights and we share in the tributes being paid to him by his colleagues and family. We hope this case will be solved quickly.”Navarrete, 53, was found dead in the bathroom of his Guayaquil home on the night of 24 February by his mother. His hands were tied and he had been stabbed seven times in the neck and thorax. The police said they also found signs of torture on the body. Blood was discovered inside his car, which was found in another part of the city, and the police suspect he was not killed in his home. The neighbours did not see or hear anything suspicious and nothing appears to have been taken from the home. The police now say they think the murder was an act of revenge.El Telégrafo, the newspaper which Navarrete used to edit, was acquired by the state in 1999 when the business empire of its owner, Fernando Aspiazu, collapsed. Navarrete waged a longer battle on behalf of the newspaper’s private shareholders for majority control. After a court ruled in favour of the state on 7 June 2007, Navarrete had to leave and went to Guayaquil to run La Calle.

Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” KIND hearted Limerick people who were moved by the plight of refugees and their small children drowning as they flee warzones may have made offers of accomodation to sites which cannot deliver to the people who need it.In the wake of the heartbreaking pictures of three-year old Alan Kurdi who perished along with his five-year-old brother and mother off the coast of Turkey., thousands of Irish people logged on to pledge beds and accommodation for the people driven out.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up But the only official agency tasked with matching offers and goodwill with people in need, the Red Cross, says just 18 offers have been recorded from Limerick and just 750 nationwide.The problem is that websites set up in goodwill be different groups have fond they cannot pass information on to the Red CRoss under the Data Protection Act.Paul Anderson, Communications executive with the Red Cross explained that they have been authorised to deal with pledges. “People are coming to this country in desperate need. If people want to make a pledge of accommodation then they can do so through out website. We also welcome pledges of donations or skills such as language teaching and a befriending pledge is very important, particularly from bodies such as sporting organisations who can help people settle in to communities. This is particularly important for children”.Meanwhile, the Department of Justice has confirmed that reports that a site or sites have been identified in Limerick to process and accommodate migrants are dated. “These (the named sites) are historic and have nothing to do with this wave of migrants. We are now examining expressions of interest in providing accommodation for people coming to this country,” a spokesperson said. The spokesperson said there will be no identification of possible sites until the expressions of interest have been examined.Meanwhile, Doras Luimni, the migrant support organisation have reacted to a statement by Minister for Justice and Equality, Frances Fitzgerald, there would be “a stronger focus on deportations in 2016 to prioritise genuine refugees amid concerns the asylum system is being abused”.Leonie Kerins, Doras Luimni director said that “while it is encouraging to the see Government making progress in the realisation of its commitment to resettle some 4,000 refugees, we cannot forget that over 4,500 people continue to live in sub-standard conditions under the system of Direct Provision. For so many people, this Christmas was be the tenth year in institutionalised living while awaiting a decision on their asylum application”.Ms Kerins said that national developments on the issue of Direct Provision progressed somewhat in early 2015 with the conclusion of the government’s Working Group, which recommended residency for long-term asylum seekers in Ireland.“More recently, the new International Protection Bill was enacted but failed to include key recommendations made by NGOs in the sector on the right to work, the best interest of the child and family reunification rights.“Doras are supporting Syrian refugees who have recently resettled in Ireland through our sub-office in Portloaise, which has been very positive and inspiring to date, We remain deeply concerned however that the new Protection Bill may limit their right to family reunification thus further limiting the rights of refugees in Ireland. Additionally, the Government is now creating a two-tier system that prioritises newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers under the current resettlement and relocation commitments and is at risk of neglecting the long-term residents of Direct Provision, who have suffered enormously under failed policies.
