3 “Strong Buy” Healthcare Stocks With Major Catalysts Approaching

Reflecting the ultimate risk and reward, healthcare stocks are capable of delivering big returns at what feels like the drop of a hat, but investors need to be prepared for big risk, too.Unlike companies in other sectors, the survival of many healthcare players, especially when they are in the early stages, hinges on only clinical trials of their therapies or products in development and regulatory rulings, with updates on either front acting as catalysts that can send shares in either direction.So, any piece of good news can propel shares to sky-high levels. Disappointing outcomes, however, can send investors running for the hills.Given the inherently volatile nature of the space, due diligence is necessary before making investment decisions. That’s where the Wall Street pros can lend a hand, as they know the ins and outs of the industry.Bearing this in mind,

Another 695,000 people lost their jobs in the UK during lockdown

Around 695,000 UK workers have been removed from the payrolls of British companies since March when the coronavirus lockdown began, according to official figures.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the rate of unemployment increased as another 36,000 jobs fell off payrolls across the country.

Meanwhile, unemployment increased by 104,000 to 1.4 million for the three months to July.

It said the rate of unemployment therefore increased to 4.1%, in line with analyst expectations.

ONS director of economic statistics Darren Morgan said: “Some effects of the pandemic on the labour market were beginning to unwind in July as parts of the economy reopened.

“Fewer workers were away on furlough and average hours rose.

“The number of job vacancies continued to recover into August, too.

“Nonetheless, with the number of employees on the payroll down again in August and both unemployment and redundancies sharply up in July, it is clear

One People, One House: Goodwill, hope emerge in Elms’ urban education effort

Editor’s note: This viewpoint is part of The Republican’s continuing series, One People, One House, a community dialogue on where we are today on the issues of racism and policing across the country and here at home.

On July 26, as the body of Congressman John Lewis crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge one last time, America faced an inescapable historical moment. The country is coming to grips with the realization that racial hierarchy, one of the pillars of American society since colonial time, is no longer acceptable.

The majority of the country believes that people should no longer be apportioned more or less life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, based on their race. This is a very hopeful moment for the United States and, all across the country, people are sowing the seeds for a more equitable society. Elms College was ahead of the trend. We have been working

Most Britons accept LGBT+ people, but concern over education persists

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Most people in Britain are now happy to have gay or bisexual people as colleagues, neighbours and leaders, but many still think schools should not teach young children about homosexuality, researchers said on Thursday.

While more that 90% of those surveyed by research company Kantar expressed acceptance of gay and bisexual people, about four in 10 said they would not want six-year-olds to be taught that it is ok to be gay.

“In the UK, we have come a long way, but this study shows that social progress is not guaranteed,” said Craig Watkins, UK chief executive of Kantar’s public division, in a statement.

“Although we see high levels of comfort of LGB people in community leadership roles, notable proportions of people have concerns about the education of children,” he said.

Kantar surveyed 2,363 people aged 16 and over between 8 July and 6 August

The 100 People Transforming Business series showcases leaders driving innovation in manufacturing

  • Robots, 3D printing, and drones are features of the new manufacturing world-order, which even a few years ago seemed experimental.
  • Financing these innovations can sometimes be challenging, however, as margins in manufacturing tend to be thin.
  • Innovation does cause concern over lost employment opportunities. Companies are looking at ways to reskill workers for a more automated future. 
  • 100 People Transforming Business is an annual list and series highlighting those across industries who are changing the way the world does business. Check out the full list for 2020.

The manufacturing industry is in the midst of a major shift to adopt next-generation technologies. “Digital twins” of aircraft and other assets enable companies to monitor parts for maintenance well before they break down, saving valuable time and money. Robots now routinely work alongside humans on factory floors handling mundane tasks, like transporting pallets.

Drones will soon start flying around large warehouses to

Over 30 million people told Facebook if they had Covid or wore masks

When Carnegie Mellon researchers had the idea to put together a survey asking the general public about their coronavirus symptoms, the scientists knew they needed to collect millions of data points to learn anything meaningful.

So they asked Facebook, which has a public team that specializes in using analytics for humanitarian causes called “Data for Good,” for its help. 

The survey, which went live to Facebook’s billions of users about six months ago, has so far collected data from more than 30 million people around the world. The survey asks whether they tested positive for the virus, if they wear masks and practice socially distancing as well as if they’re currently experiencing symptoms. Respondents also share data about their demographics, like their age, as well as their mental health status and preexisting medical conditions.

More than 1.5 million people fill out

It wasn’t that Zeta Annear didn’t like being a dinner lady. The children were lovely and the school felt like a community. It was straightforward work – because her school was small, all Annear had to do was collect cooked food from a nearby, bigger school, dish it out, then wash up. But the 39-year-old mother of three from Cornwall always felt as if something was missing. “I felt like I wasn’t using my brain whatsoever,” Annear says. “As much as I loved the teachers, the children and the people, I needed more.”

Annear has wanted to be a nurse since she was a child. Her desire to work in healthcare was reignited when she lost her daughter Sophie, who was stillborn, in 2010. “My midwife was absolutely phenomenal … even though I was going through the most horrendous experience ever, she made me feel like everything was OK,” Annear
