Cheap UK shares for 2021? Here are two I’d buy today Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Roland Head has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Many UK shares rallied strongly after November’s vaccine news, but I don’t think the stock market recovery is over yet. I think there are still some good, cheap companies out there. Today, I want to look at two names on my buy list at the moment.How I’d play the housing marketHousebuilder Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV) is one of my favourite firms in this sector. I rate the management highly and admire the company’s 11-year record of achieving a five-star HBF customer satisfaction rating. In my view, it pays to invest in companies which sell products popular with customers.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…Barratt says sales rose by 12% during the second half of 2020. In total, 9,077 homes were sold with an average selling price of £283,000.This surge in demand is partly due to lockdown restrictions in spring last year which prevented moving. But government policy is probably a factor too. The popular Help to Buy scheme is due to be restricted to first-time buyers from April. The current stamp duty holiday is also due to end on 31 March.These one-off factors may affect future demand and house prices, but they’re no secret. I believe these risks are already priced into this popular UK share. What’s more, I think there’s a good chance the chancellor may extend one or both of these schemes, given the UK may be in lockdown until March.Barratt shares currently trade on 13 times 2021 forecast earnings, with an expected yield of 3%. I don’t know what the future holds for the UK housing market, but I do trust Barratt’s experienced management to navigate the situation as well as possible. I think this company should do well when life finally returns to normal.A UK share in need of normalityBarratt was able to continue fairly normally for much of last year. Pub operators such as Marston’s (LSE: MARS) haven’t. The company’s pubs are all currently closed, as they have been for much of the last nine months.This is causing problems for Marston’s but, unlike some rivals, I think this group looks financially secure and well-positioned for a recovery.In October, Marston’s sold its brewing business into a joint venture with Carlsberg for £233m, allowing the group to repay some of its debt. A further payment of £20m is due in October this year.It’s also expanded its pub estate during the crisis, by taking on the management of 156 pubs from Welsh brewer Brains.As things stand, the business is obviously losing money. But the latest numbers from the company suggest to me it could survive lockdown until early summer without needing extra cash. I’d hope that we’ll be out of lockdown sooner than that.When life does go back to normal, I believe pubs should recover fairly quickly. I think that operators whose finances are not too strained could be good investments. Marston’s looks good value to me for a recovery trade — the firm’s shares trade at just 6.5 times 2019 earnings.Any return to normal would be likely to lift the stock, in my view. I’d buy this UK share for a recovery portfolio. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Organisation Receive email alerts June 7, 2021 Find out more News Taiwanese conglomerate China Times Media Group filed an abusive libel suit against Financial Times correspondent who reported on Chinese meddling within the editorial department of its daily newspaper. News July 24, 2019 Taiwan: Abusive libel suit against Financial Times correspondent TaiwanChinaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Judicial harassment News Mongolia : RSF urges presidential candidates to voice support for press freedom News Help by sharing this information RSF_en China Times Media Group filed a defamation lawsuit last week against Financial Times correspondent Kathrin Hille after she published an article alleging China’s meddling in daily newspaper China Times’ editorial direction. The journalist, who has been covering China and Taiwan for over a decade, was also the victim of harassing phone calls and messages after the article was released.The media group belongs to food manufacturer Want Want, a conglomerate with large operations in China and whose chairman Tsai Eng-Meng doesn’t conceal his sympathy for the Beijing regime. The group has also sued Taiwan’s state-owned press agency Central News Agency (CNA) for quoting the article.“China Times is abusing the regulation to harass a seasoned journalist whose works it dislikes,” says Cédric Alviani, head of the Reporters Without Borders (RSF) East Asia bureau, who believes the Financial Times report “quite plausible, considering the flaunty pro-China allegiance of the Want Want group.”In a report published in March, RSF quoted a research paper showing how editorial practices at China Times changed dramatically after it was bought by Want Want in 2008. In April, the group also threatened to sue Apple Daily, one of the four largest daily newspapers in Taiwan, for reporting that one of its companies had been subsidized by the Chinese authorities.Taiwan, a democracy over which the People’s Republic of China claims sovereignty, has seen a significant increase in Beijing’s hold over its media environment over the past years. In May, Taiwan’s National Security Bureau also alleged that some local media outlets were receiving instructions from Beijing.Taiwan is currently ranked 42nd out of 180 in the 2019 RSF World Press Freedom Index, while China remains near the bottom of the ranking at 177th.

Pittsburgh Zoo(PITTSBURGH) — A 10-year-old African lion at the Pittsburgh Zoo has died after he suffered a grand mal seizure, zoo veterinarians announced Wednesday.Razi was diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy in 2013 and was placed on anti-seizure medication, according to a release from the zoo obtained by ABC News. After Razi suffered a seizure on Sunday, he fell and fractured his jaw, and vets determined it was not in the lion’s best interest to attempt the difficult surgery needed.In addition, it would have been difficult for the 500-pound lion to maintain a good quality of life as he recovered from the surgery, given his increased seizure rate, according to the zoo.Idiopathic epilepsy is a “very rare” condition in lions, and Razi was otherwise healthy before he was diagnosed, the release states. His treatment plan allowed for him to keep his seizures at a controlled level without affecting changes to his liver, which can be a side effect of the medication.Razi would even allow vets to obtain blood samples from his tail every couple of months so they could check his medication and serum function, Dr. Ginger Sturgeon, the zoo’s director of animal health, who also described Razi as an “amazing cat,” said in the release.“It’s so hard for all of us at the zoo to lose an animal we have cared so deeply for but we try to remember all of the good memories and positive impact that he had on our zoo visitors,” Sturgeon said.Razi’s brother, Ajani, still lives at the zoo, Dr. Barbara Baker, president and CEO of the Pittsburgh Zoo, said in the release. The pair arrived at the zoo in 2012 and have been “inseparable” over the years.“It is a sad day for all of us,” Baker said. “Our animals are like members of our family and losing a family member is tough. Razi was a magnificent animal, and will also be missed by our visitors who developed a bond with him and his brother Ajani.”Zookeepers will keep a close eye on Ajani during this transition time, according to the release.The African lion species is currently classified as “vulnerable,” with just 20,000 left in the wild, according to the zoo. Their populations have decreased by almost 40% due to loss of habitat, illegal wildlife trade and conflict with humans.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

View post tag: Iraqi Navy US, Iraqi, Kuwaiti navies organize first trilateral exercise The U.S. Navy, Army and Coast Guard together with Iraqi and Kuwaiti navies and Kuwait Coast Guard, sketched out the creation of the first in a series of U.S.-Iraq-Kuwait trilateral exercises following an initial planning conference held at Naval Support Activity Bahrain, July 13.The U.S.-Iraq-Kuwait trilateral will be a quarterly exercise that serves to develop the proficiency of all participating forces to work together in support of regional safety and security.The trilateral will replace two separate monthly U.S.-Iraq and U.S.-Kuwait bilateral exercises and serves to support long-term regional cooperation of forces in the Arabian Gulf.“We are happy to work cooperatively with our brotherly Kuwaiti navy to protect our waters from external threats,” said Capt. Abdulate’ef K. Obaid, Iraqi navy senior naval representative.“It will be a good opportunity to reengage with our Iraqi friends in order to secure the area from any threats,” said Cmdr. Walid Sabti, Kuwaiti navy head of training. “We have the same needs for security, and the success of this exercise depends on each other.”Commander, Task Force (CTF) 55 facilitated the conference, which consisted of representatives from U.S., Kuwaiti and Iraqi forces in order to solidify schedule of training events and address any potential challenges that might take place during the trilateral.“We value greatly the role this exercise will play in building security interoperability, as well as for the enhancement of our collective capability to operate forward in the Arabian Gulf and promote regional political and economic stability,” said Capt. Andrew Arnold, commodore, CTF 55.The trilateral concept was driven by the desire of the three partner nations to cooperatively address threats that exist in the Arabian Gulf. The Republic of Iraq became a member of the Combined Maritime Forces in February. With a desire to increase its involvement in maintaining security and stability in the region, planning for the exercise series began.“The trilateral exercise this August with our partners, Kuwait and Iraq, is a significant milestone because it is the first joint exercise since 2006 that simultaneously involves both countries,” said Arnold.Training will include a search and rescue exercise; nighttime joint patrol; visit, board, search, and seizure (VBSS) operations, fast attack craft and fast inshore attack craft defense, first-aid response and maritime infrastructure protection.
