See all posts by Harvey Jones A stock market crash is the ideal opportunity to go shopping for the best UK shares you can find. If you are looking to build a million-pound portfolio of shares, you need to use moments like these to pick up dirt-cheap bargain stocks.Plenty of top FTSE 100 stocks are now available at reduced prices. But which are the best UK shares to buy today?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…A handful of companies did well in the FTSE 100 crash, for example, food delivery specialist Ocado Group. With the nation locked in at home, grocery firms kept us fed. We’d starve without them. Tesco and Morrisons also held up.I am wary of the big grocers though. They work to wafer-thin margins and face stiff competition from Aldi and Lidl. Ocado is expensive. It is priced for rapid growth and any slip-up would cost investors dear.I’d say these are some of the best UK sharesFTSE 100 pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline suit me better. If I was investing to make a million, I would include at least one of them. Right now, that would be Glaxo. AstraZeneca looks expensive at 25 times earnings.My list of best UK shares would also include an income-paying utility stock. National Grid currently yields 5.07% and is down around 12% on its pre-crisis high. I would also consider asset manager Standard Life Aberdeen, which currently yields more than 8%, and looks after its shareholders. It is one of the best UK stocks for income right now. As is Legal & General Group. It rejected pressure to dump its dividend as rival Aviva has done, and now yields more than 8%.FTSE 100 bargains galoreSo what is the best UK stock for those wanting growth as well as income? I’d start with household goods giant Unilever. After years of share price growth, it is down 7% over 12 months. You can now buy it for less than 20 times earnings, a bargain entry point.Educational publisher Pearson and events specialist Informa are two FTSE 100 stocks flying under the radar right now. Both are bouncing back from the March slump, so you may still have a buying opportunity. Drinks giant Diageo would be on my list of the best UK shares at any time.If you are happy to take on a bit more risk, I would consider stocks that took a big hit in the crisis. I’m thinking Cineworld Group and easyJet. Personally, I’d be more wary about cruise operator Carnival. I think that corner of the travel industry faces a rough passage to respectability.These FTSE 100 stocks will not make you a millionaire overnight. You cannot do that on the stock market anyway. The way to get rich and retire early is to gradually build a balanced portfolio of the best UK shares. Hold them for the long term and keep reinvesting your dividends for growth. You can make that million, if you give it time. Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge!

Forget the IAG share price! I’d buy this stock instead! Enter Your Email Address 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. The IAG (LSE: IAG) share price jumped last week after news emerged that a possible vaccine for Covid-19 may be available before the end of the year. This is potentially positive news for the airline sector. However, I think this could be an excellent opportunity to sell, not buy, the stock. Today, I’m going to explain why. IAG share price problems Over the past few months, it’s become clear IAG’s problems won’t be short-lived. At the beginning of the pandemic, the company was confident it had enough liquidity to last the crisis. This hasn’t proven to be correct. The airline group has had to raise billions from investors over the past few months to stay afloat. 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…While a vaccine will help the sector’s recovery get off the ground, it won’t be a magic cure. It could be ages before airlines see a return to 2019 levels of activity. That means the company could be facing years of depressed profits. This would weigh on the IAG share price. In my view, the outlook for the stock is shrouded in uncertainty. IAG may be able to stage a recovery in the next few years, but this isn’t guaranteed. The firm could continue to struggle. That’s why I’d avoid the IAG share price. I reckon there are plenty of other companies on the market with brighter prospects. One alternative One alternative is Softcat (LSE: SCT). The two companies could not be more different. IAG is an airline group that is facing momentous challenges. Meanwhile, Softcat is an IT infrastructure corporation which is seeing the demand for its services explode.Shares in Softcat have outperformed the IAG share price by 66% in 2020. I think that clearly shows investors believe the former’s long-term prospects are much brighter. And I’m inclined to agree. The demand for IT and related services is only expanding. This trend will likely continue for many decades as the world’s tech industry grows. On the other hand, the airline sector is facing overcapacity, higher costs, environmental challenges, and potentially years of lower demand. Demand should recover in the long run, but the other challenges will remain. High costs and empty seats have always been an issue for the airline sector. That won’t change after Covid-19. Countless carriers have failed because they’ve been unable to compete in the market. Softcat doesn’t have these issues. The firm is a leader in its sector, has a cash-rich balance sheet, and can set its own profit margins. I believe these qualities, coupled with the tech sector’s growth tailwinds, should help the company continue to outperform the IAG share price in the long term. That’s why I’d rather own this growth star over the struggling airline group for the next few years.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Some things in women’s rugby don’t change – and England’s supremacy in Europe is one…THERE ARE very few sporting certainties in the world but it would be safe to put your mortgage on England’s women picking up their fifth Grand Slam in six years, writes Rugby World editor Paul Morgan. This is especially the case since they despatched their only credible rivals, France, in the third round 16-3.Picking up where they left off at last year’s World Cup, when they lost in the final to New Zealand, and having lost none of their first XV, England have been rampaging through Europe this time around, only conceding one try in the first three rounds while scoring a massive 103 points. Italian replacement Chiara Castellarin has the honour of scoring the only try conceded by England – in a 68-5 win – to this point.But the victories still haven’t satisfied England coach Gary Street, who said: “There’s lots for us to work on but the important thing is that we’re still on track. We’re fortunate that we haven’t had many retirements since the World Cup and that this is still a young squad.”England have been playing home games in Esher and Worcester, but will take their rightful place at the home of English rugby when they face Scotland at Twickenham after the men’s match on Sunday 13 March.Under England’s new skipper Katy McLean, Worcester’s outstandingly talented Nolli Waterman leads the way in the try-scoring stakes with three, following her impressive form in the Women’s World Cup.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Italy are up and running and looking likely to avoid the wooden spoon after beating Wales 12-8 in round three for their first win in 2011, following defeats to Ireland and England. Maria Diletta Veronese and Cioffi Maria Grazia scored the tries as Wales lost in La Spezia.France previously edged out Ireland 14-12 to probably decide the runners-up spot, while Wales defeated Scotland 41-12.This article appeared in the April 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine

Canon Stephanie Spellers in particular addressed the ways that “revivals” and “evangelism” have been done in ways that have been harmful and disrespectful at both an individual and societal level, and yet as Bishop Curry says, “If it isn’t about love, it isn’t about God. And that evangelism is just helping people to find their way home.” I tell you, the revival and the understanding of evangelism that is espoused by Bishop Curry and as happened in Pittsburgh this past weekend was all about love and inclusivity and respect for all. Not guilt. Not pressure. We have a lot of bridges in Pittsburgh, literal and figurative bridges that divide us: race, religion, ethnicity, politics, geography, economics. This revival was about doing more listening than talking. It was about finding common ground and sharing stories. It was about worship and breaking bread. It was incredibly powerful and affirming of all the things I love in the Episcopal church and lead me to believe we can be a powerful force for good in the world.

This is an opportunity for healing and renewal. It is an individual and collective opportunity to draw closer to God. If you must test the waters before you get in, at least test it. You may find refreshment for your soul.

Revival meant being feeling guilty if you didn’t go down to the altar to be “saved;” revival meant being pressured by others to accept Jesus; revival meant having to “testify” even when you didn’t want to; revival meant scorn to those who didn’t buy into a belief of a charismatic church. “Revival” in the South meant conforming to the norms…it was repressive and against what the Bible says…”to love thy neighbor as thyself.” I came to the Episcopal Church because I could be me and love our Lord without all the pressure and guilt that “revival” meant. Having Episcopal “revivals” to me means going down a slippery slope. A slope that has divided and caused anguish to many churches.

WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Follow the news on Israel News Receive email alerts RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes to go further IsraelMiddle East – North Africa News IsraelMiddle East – North Africa News July 26, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cameraman seriously injured in targeted attack by Israeli army on journalists in Gaza Condemning the Israeli army’s latest targeted attack on journalists in the Gaza Strip, in which Ibrahim Atla, a cameraman with the Palestinian public TV broadcaster, was seriously injured this morning by shots fired by a tank in eastern Gaza, Reporters Without Borders today urged the Israeli authorities to calm their troops down.“We appeal to the Israeli authorities to put an end to targeted attacks on civilians and we call for immediate measures to ensure the safety of journalists covering the fighting,” the organisation said. “Journalists and other media workers have repeatedly been the victims of deliberate violence by the Israeli forces, especially in recent weeks.”A journalist who witnessed this morning’s attack told Reporters Without Borders it was deliberate. “We were wearing vests indicating that we were media workers,” he said. “But an Israeli army tank located 150 metres away began firing towards us. We began to run but the shots continued.”Around 20 media workers were covering the Israeli army’s incursion into the Gaza Strip this morning when the attack took place. Atla, who was wearing a vest with the word “Media,” was hit in the chest by shrapnel from a shell. He was rushed to Shifa hospital in Gaza where doctors described his condition as critical. His assistant and a Japanese journalist were also injured and a Reuters vehicle was damaged.

Scott Jones. He was then given a tour of the ship, including the Navigation Bridge, Combat Information Center and Engineering Control.“Operating in the Black Sea has been an incredible opportunity for us to further strengthen our ties and improve our interoperability with an important strategic partner, Romania, who just recently celebrated their 10th anniversary as a member of NATO,” said Jones. “We feel that this is an important time to demonstrate our resolve and shared commitment with NATO; that we will maintain the right presence where it matters to promote peace and stability.”“Donald Cook’s visit to Romania is an example of the U.S. Navy’s commitment to strengthen ties while working toward mutual goals in the Black Sea. This multi-mission destroyer is there to reassure their NATO allies that they share a commitment to promote peace and stability in the region, “the U.S. Navy said in release.“We have also been privileged to host several members of the Romanian Navy during our time in the Black Sea,” added Jones. “This professional exchange has been valuable for my crew, allowing us a chance to discuss future exercise opportunities, and helping to reinforce, on a personal level, the strong ties between our two navies and our two nations.”Donald Cook, the first of four Arleigh Burke-class destroyers to be forward-deployed to Rota, Spain, is serving on a scheduled patrol in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations as part of the President’s European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) to ballistic missile defense in Europe.U.S. 6th Fleet, headquartered in Naples, Italy, conducts a full range of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation missions in concert with coalition, joint, interagency, and other parties in order to advance security and stability in Europe and Africa.[mappress]Press Release, April 16, 2014; Image: US Navy Training & Education View post tag: Navy View post tag: welcomes View post tag: News by topic Share this article View post tag: Cook View post tag: USS Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Donald Cook Welcomes Romanian President on Board View post tag: Donald
