Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 5th July, 2020 | More on: GSK I think the GSK share price could help you retire early Image source: Getty Images Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Of all the 100 different stocks in the FTSE 100, I think the GSK (LSE: GSK) share price has more potential to help you retire early than most. It all comes down to the company’s defensive nature. 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…GSK share price growth Healthcare is one of the world’s most defensive markets. The treatments and products produced by GSK will always be required, and as the population grows, so will demand. But there’s more to GSK that its existing portfolio of drugs and medications. The company also spends billions of pounds every year researching new treatments. These products are designed to combat existing diseases and viruses, as well as new threats. The group is always trying to think of new ways to treat old problems and to address new issues. Management also considers acquisitions regularly. These efforts should help the company maintain its edge in the global pharmaceutical industry, not just in the short term, but in the long run as well.This is the primary reason why the GSK share price could make an excellent buy-and-forget investment. Its products will always be in demand, and demand will only grow over the long run. That means to a certain extent the business runs itself. The company’s consumer pharmaceuticals division is another positive factor. Management is planning to spin off this business in the near term, which could create a windfall for shareholders. A special dividend or shares in the business may be distributed to existing GSK share price holders. Income returns It’s also good news for income seekers. GSK’s defensive business model means that the company has a relatively stable and predictable income stream from operations. This supports an attractive dividend yield on the GSK share price. Indeed, over the past few months, many FTSE 100 businesses have been forced to cut or eliminate their dividends to conserve cash in the coronavirus crisis. GSK is one of the few companies in the index that has not taken this course of action.As a result, at the time of writing the stock supports a dividend yield of 4.9%, above the FTSE 100 average of around 4%. This looks set to continue as the dividend is well covered by earnings per share. The dividend cover stands at 1.5.Retire early All of the above suggests that the GSK share price may be an excellent buy for any investor’s retirement portfolio. Over the long term, earnings per share should grow at least in line with inflation. That implies the company can achieve long-run earnings growth of 3% or more. Coupled with its 4.9% dividend yield, these numbers infer that the stock can produce total returns of 7.9% in the long term. This rate of return is more than enough to help you grow your financial nest egg. According to my calculations, an investment of £200 a month growing at a rate of 7.9% per annum could grow to be worth as much as £300,000 after 30 years.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

The Novacyt share price is up over 10,000% but I still think it’s a buy

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Image source: Getty Images The Novacyt (LSE:NCYT) share price has risen from under 7p a year ago to 780p at yesterday’s close. That is an extraordinary 11,043% rise. Some equally impressive financial results underlie Novacyt’s stock price surge. In the first half of 2019, Novacyt made €5.86m in revenue. Half-year revenue for 2020 was up 1,129% year-on-year to €72m. Novacyt made an operating loss of €0.89m for the first six months of 2019 but turned an operating profit of €48.65m for the same period in 2020.Novacyt’s trailing 12-month net income up to 30 June 2020, was €35.44. That is a stellar improvement in the bottom line of a company that traditionally reported full-year losses. Clearly, something significant has happened at this maker of diagnostic tests for cancer and infectious diseases, and that something is the coronavirus crisis.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…Novacyt share price riseIn early January, Novacyt started work on a coronavirus test. Later that month its global regulators made it the first test approved for use. At the same time, Novacyt scaled up its manufacturing capacity to deal with the anticipated surge in demand. Novacyt’s share price started to climb in January as the markets took note of its efforts.In April, Novacyt won a contract from the UK Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) to supply coronavirus testing kits. This drove its share price higher. After a bit of a slump, September brought a stunning half-year report, a new contract from the DHSC, and a new type of test. Novacyt’s share price rallied again, hitting a high of 880p in October.The September DHSC contract is worth at least €160m. This will rise to around €260 if, as expected, the DHSC takes the option to extend the supply period from 14 to 24 weeks. Novacyt has become a trusted partner of the DHSC because it offers tests for active and past coronavirus infections. Also, it has near-patient testing kits on offer, alongside equipment for use in dedicated larger-scale testing units. This range of options is just what governments require to carry out mass testing.Testing timesNovacyt’s full-year 2020 revenues could be north of €332m – that is year-on-year revenue growth of an astonishing 5,566%. Revenues from coronavirus testing are expected to continue to be high well into 2021. But, what of the years beyond the coronavirus crisis? How will Novacyt and its share price do then?Novacyt plans to leverage the reputation, market intelligence, and relationships developed during the Covid-19 response to commercialise new products and expand its presence in respiratory and transplant clinical diagnostics. Novacyt now has plenty of cash (and no debt) to make acquisitions and invest in R&D to achieve these goals.Novacyt’s management looks more than competent. They acted quickly and decisively when alerted to the coronavirus, beating many to the punch. Then they continued to innovate as the crisis developed. I have confidence they will achieve their goals. The trend to diversify supply chains in the wake of the coronavirus also works in Novacyt’s favour as it will allow market share to be gained with increased ease. Also, decentralised testing is a new theme and requires outfitting more locations with testing capabilities, which is to Novacyt’s benefit.Novacyt is still a small company, and its plans carry significant execution risk. But I think the Novacyt share price has room to run for an investor willing to accept the risks. See all posts by James J.

Photo: Anglican Communion News Service“My wife and I lived in Paris for five years and it was one of the happiest places we have lived; and to think of a place of such celebration of life seeing such suffering is utterly heart-breaking,” he told presenter Aled Jones.Asked where God was in this, Welby said that “He is alongside, with that deep involvement in the suffering and pain of the world that took him to the cross”; and he admitted that when such atrocities occur, his faith is put to the test.He said that as he was out walking on the day following the attacks, “I was praying and saying ‘God, Why? Where? Why is this happening? Where are you in all this?’; and then engaging and talking with God. Yes, I doubt.”As he prayed, he sensed God answered him in the words of Psalm 56 – “He stores up our tears in a bottle,” he said. “None of our sufferings are lost.”He criticized the perpetrators of the attacks for the way they had misused religious belief. “Religion is so powerful in the way humans behave that it has always been a tool used by the wicked to twist people into doing what they want them to do,” he said.“Yes, [the terrorists] do believe that [they are doing it to glorify God], but just because someone believes something deeply wrong, it doesn’t mean that they are right in some strange way just because they put God in it.“The perversion of faith is one of the most desperate aspects of our world today.”He said that he, like others, felt the instant reaction of “an eye for an eye;” but added that “two injustices do not make justice. If we start randomly killing those who have not done wrong, that’s not going to provide solutions.“Governments have to be the means of justice – the Bible tells us that they are put there by God with the sword for justice – but they also have to lead us into a place where peace can be established.”Welby was joined on the program by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, leader of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales. He said that it had taken him “quite a while” to come to terms with the reality of what happened when “people who had just gone out for a drink, gone out for a meal, gone out for a football match and were not coming home [and] had just been slaughtered.”On the question of faith and the terrorists’ motives, Nichols said that: “Often, society looks on faith as a problem. But at moments like this we have to recover our sense of living in the presence of God and see that as a great strength.“I think the purpose that terrorists have in mind is first of all, to make us live in fear; secondly, to breed hatred within us; and thirdly and consequently, to strike divisions within our society, to split us apart. I have been trying to stress the importance of resisting those three things.“I think their intention is deeply distorted in terms of any claim of a religious motive. And, as Pope Francis has said, their actions are a blasphemy against God. So rather than with any rationality or validity claiming to act in the name of God; this is an absolute blasphemy for everything that God stands for.”He called for strong action to be taken against those responsible, saying: “Terrorists, and those who persecute and belittle people in the most terrible ways, have to be stopped. The decision about how best to stop them is a political and a military judgment; but there is no doubt that strong action has to be taken.”The Songs of Praise program is one of longest running televised worship program in the world. It does not broadcast church services, but a mixture of hymns and worship songs interspersed with testimonies and interviews.The worship element is predominantly, if not exclusively, Christian; from a variety of Church traditions. This week’s edition featured an interview with Imam Ibrahim Mogra, the assistant secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain.He said that he learned of the atrocities with “absolute shock”, continuing: “And what made it worse was that these perpetrators claim to have done it in the name of God. Far from it. This was Satan’s work and they did the bidding of the devil.“Islam totally condemns this kind of murderous atrocities wherever they take place; and our thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost their loved ones.”World continues to mourn attacksMemorial services continue to be held around the world for the victims of the terrorist attacks; including at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in the Fijian capital Suva, where 130 candles were lit yesterday (Sunday) to represent the lives lost after the attacks in Paris.The service also remembered the victims of other terrorist atrocities, including the Nov. 20 attack on a hotel in Bamako, the capital of Mali; recent attacks in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey; and the 224 passengers and crew of Metrojet flight 9268, which exploded over the Sinai Peninsula en route from Cairo to Saint Petersburg.“There is no excuse whatsoever for these acts of terror, especially in the name of God,” Fiji’s acting prime minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum told the congregation.“Paris, France, and the democratic world have been targeted through these inhuman actions. The victims of the attacks, 130 dead and more than 350 injured were just ordinary people leading ordinary lives, enjoying an evening in restaurants, listening to a music concert or watching a football game.“The attacks in Paris, as is the goal of terrorists, were, yet again an unspeakable attempt to bring hate and terror in people’s hearts, by taking life of fellow human,” he said.Another service was held at St John the Baptist Church in Cardiff on Sunday, bringing together members of the diplomatic community in Wales.The president of the principality’s consular association, the Indian Honorary Consul Raj K Aggarwal, said: “It is essential that we held this event of remembrance in Cardiff for those who were killed in Paris last week. . . We must remember those who were so needlessly killed and we need to let all nations know, the French, Germans, Belgian, Portuguese and of course our own countrymen, that we stand together and that we care.“This attack on France in Paris was an attack on Cardiff, an attack on Wales and the UK. We must show the French that it will not be forgotten just because it happened 200 miles away across the English Channel. We support the French people and our consular colleague, Marie Brousseau-Navarro.”Brousseau-Navarro, the French honorary consul in Wales, said: “I am very grateful to my colleagues of the Consular Association in Wales and to our great friends for organizing the event. As France is struck in its heart in Paris for the second time this year, French people know that they can count on the strong reaction of solidarity from the UK and Wales. We are touched by the many demonstrations of support in Wales and throughout the world.“Our thoughts are with the families of the victims and our compatriots in France and as our communities remain united and strong together, I thank you all for your compassion, support and solidarity.”last_img read more

Apopka Police Department hires seven new officers

first_img The Anatomy of Fear From the Apopka Police DepartmentThe Apopka Police Department swore-in seven new officers on Monday, and introduced them to the community at the City Council meeting on Wednesday. This brings the APD to 106 sworn officers, and room in the 2017-18 fiscal budget to hire two more.Here is a brief bio of all seven new APD officers:Officer Brian Kennedy Jr. was born in Orlando and has lived in Apopka since the age of four. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends. His favorite hobbies are hunting and fishing. Kennedy has an AA degree from Valencia Community College and plans on continuing his education to eventually obtain a bachelors degree in business management. Kennedy has wanted to be a police officer since the age of 10, and after attending the City of Apopka’s youth police Academy that goal was bolstered. Upon graduating from the police academy at Seminole State College he joined the Apopka Police Department. He is very excited and grateful to be able to work for the City of Apopka and can’t wait to see where his new career takes him.Officer Austin Bitter was born and raised in Leesburg where he attended Lake County schools and ran track and cross-country. After high school, Bitter attended the Police Academy at Lake Technical College. After the Academy, he was hired by the Eustis Police Department where he worked on road patrol and the special enforcement unit for the last five years. During his time off, Bitter enjoys being outdoors and fishing. He is excited to start his career with the Apopka Police Department.Officer Emmanuel Sosa was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York where he lived for 12 years before moving to Kissimmee. By the age of 22, he had gained an abundance of experience in law enforcement as an Explorer with the Kissimmee Police Department. After being an Explorer for five years he attended Police Academy at Seminole State College. Now a proud officer for the city of Apopka, Sosa plans to be proactive, as well as a go-getter. In his free time, he enjoys going to the gym and pursuing his hobby of being a car enthusiast. In the future, Sosa plans to continue pursuing his bachelor’s degree at the University of Central FloridaOfficer Matthew Beretto was born in New York and moved to Orlando when he was seven years old. He is the third oldest child out of six siblings. Barretto attended and graduated from Lake Mary High School in 2009. He worked as a loss prevention agent for six years and three of those years were at the Beall’s Department Store in Apopka. His passion for law enforcement led him to join and graduate from the poPolicecademy at Seminole State College. He plans on continuing his education and eventually wants to earn his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.Officer Miranda Wrinkle comes to the Apopka Police Department after successfully completing the Police Academy at Seminole State College. She graduated from Trinity Catholic high school in 2012, and for the last five years worked in the health and wellness industry. One of the things she hopes to accomplish as an Apopka Police Officer is to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and the community.Officer Katie Calamo was born in China and adopted at the age of 2 1/2 years old. Although she was raised on Long Island New York, in 2015 she decided to come down to Florida to pursue her education and in 2017 she graduated from the University of Central Florida with a bachelor of science degree in criminal justice. While attending UCF, she was a member of the National Criminal Justice Association, where her passion for law enforcement was sparked by the networking opportunities she encountered. Shortly after her time at UCF, Calamo enrolled in the basic law enforcement Academy at Seminole State College. She is beginning her law enforcement career with the Apopka Police Department and looks forward to growing with the agency. Officer Jacob Miller was born and raised in Apopka. After graduating from Wekiva High School in 2014, he worked at Universal Orlando Resorts as an Attractions Lead where he was also a Loss Prevention Officer. In 2017, Miller attended Seminole State College for the Basic Law Enforcement Academy. His inspiration to become a police officer with the Apopka Police Department comes from his family’s extensive 20-year history with the department. His grandmother worked for the Apopka Police Department as the records supervisor and his mother currently works in the department’s records section. Miller would like nothing more than to carry on the legacy the rest of his family has created by leaving a positive impact on the community.

first_imgArchDaily “COPY” Save this picture!© Javier Callejas+ 16Curated by Hana Abdel Share India Photographs Year:  Photographs:  Javier CallejasArchitect In Charge:Aman AggarwalDesign Team:Rahul Vig, Priya Gupta3 D Visualizer:Haneet KhannaStructure Consultant:Pankaj ChopraCountry:IndiaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Javier CallejasRecommended ProductsCarpetsB&B ItaliaCarpet – KaleidosCarpetsCaneplex DesignHandmade Bamboo MatsMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoThe Brief was to design a house for a large family of 9 people consisting of two couples and 5 children in their teens. Also an area for domestic help was required. The concept of the project evolved from a close analysis of the family setups of large Indian families in the urban context and thus striving for a perfect balance between private and public spaces and also the inter relation between the generations.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasPlanning – The house is essentially designed around a courtyard with all the public spaces overlooking into it. The varied scale of public & private spaces and there different interactions with the exterior was a central idea of the project. The public spaces have been expanded volumetrically to emphasize their importance as congregation spaces. The concept of a cross axis has been utilized in this project as well, an approach adopted by the practice for smaller houses. The vertical axis holds the entrance and is mostly transparent allowing visual connection within the house up to the backyard. The horizontal axis holds the circulation, with the staircase acting almost as an amphitheater overlooking the courtyard.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe functions are divided as per floor, ground for public spaces, first for couples and second for children. Ground floor holds the living spaces, a courtyard with a water body, a guest bedroom, kitchen and dining spaces, central lobby and staircase. The first floor holds two bedrooms for the couples with their respective toilets and dress. These bedrooms overlook into the central space with openable shutters almost like ‘jharokhas’ in the ancient Indian ‘Havelis’. The second floor holds two bedrooms, one for 2 boys and one for 3 girls, each having its own terrace garden. The idea was to create an almost segregated private zone for the youngsters. Also, the interaction of these rooms to exterior is to the terrace gardens instead of opening to the road (& overlooking school building) in the front and houses at the rear. The area for the domestic help is also on this level with a separate access from a spiral staircase in the rear court.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasAnother important aspect of the design was to resolve the serious parking issue as almost all house owners on the street own at least 3 cars. The clients in this case owned 4 cars & we wanted them not to clog the street (especially at night) like other owners. This was resolved by an amorphous boundary that had foldable extensions so that all cars could be parked inside with only covering a part of the front ramps to the house.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasEnvironmental Concern – The main strategy is to cut down the thermal intake of the house. Since the residence is a row house plot, the longer edges are common to neighbor residences and the shorter edges form the front and rear facades that face west and east respectively. Hence, to cut down the harsh sun of the west , a specific metal jaali pattern has been designed to allow in diffused light. The terrace gardens on the second floor add to the thermal mass to the roof reducing heat gains and keeping the living spaces cool.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasSave this picture!Section 02The central courtyard with a water body allows cool winds being directed and channelized into the house. The courtyard facades are so designed that do not allow direct summer sun to enter into the living spaces at the ground floor. The double height spaces and the stairwell allow stack ventilation for the whole house. The skylight above the stairwell allows diffused light to enter and accommodates vents to throw out hot air. The top floor bedrooms opening into north facing terrace gardens avoid harsh sunlight to enter these rooms.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasMaterials – The project was designed keeping in mind the prevalent construction practices and locally available materials. Composite R.C.C and brick construction has been used. The overall material palette is limited to only white marble & sivakasi gold granite along with simple white painted surfaces.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasProject gallerySee allShow lessPatrick MacLeamy on Designing a World-Class Architecture FirmInterviews605 Cornish House / Brett Farrow ArchitectSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952273/residence-568-charged-voids Clipboard Projects CopyHouses•India 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952273/residence-568-charged-voids Clipboard CopyAbout this officeCharged VoidsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPanchkulaOn FacebookIndiaPublished on November 29, 2020Cite: “Residence 568 / Charged Voids” 29 Nov 2020.

Coronavirus updates: US case count for COVID-19 tops six million

first_imgnarvikk/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 850,000 people worldwide.Over 25.4 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The criteria for diagnosis — through clinical means or a lab test — has varied from country-to-country. Still, the actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the virus has rapidly spread to every continent except Antarctica.The United States is the worst-affected country, with more than six million diagnosed cases and at least 183,598 deaths. California has the most cases of any U.S. state, with more than 712,000 people diagnosed, according to Johns Hopkins data. California is followed by Texas and Florida, with over 632,000 cases and over 623,000 cases respectively.Nearly 170 vaccine candidates for COVID-19 are being tracked by the World Health Organization, six of which are in crucial phase three trials.Here’s how the news is developing Tuesday. All times Eastern:Sep 01, 8:19 am‘We’re all on the same team,’ Fauci says of TrumpDr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top medical expert on the coronavirus pandemic and a key member of the White House coronavirus task force, is weighing in on comments President Donald Trump made during a recent interview with Fox News.Speaking to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Monday, Trump said he “inherited” Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and that he disagrees with “a lot” of what he says.“I think when you get statements like that, that doesn’t really reflect what goes on,” Fauci told ABC News’ Amy Robach in an interview Tuesday on Good Morning America. “I think that’s kind of a distraction to pit me against the president. We’re all on the same team.”Fauci also attempted to clarify new information released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which showed 94% of those who died from COVID-19 as of last week had underlying health conditions and contributing causes.“The point the CDC was trying to make was that a certain percentage of them had nothing else but just COVID. That does not mean that someone who has hypertension or diabetes who dies of COVID didn’t die of COVID-19. They did,” he said. “So the numbers that you’ve been hearing, the 180,000 plus deaths, are real deaths from COVID-19.”Trump, however, retweeted a conspiracy theory that suggested only 9,000 people have died from COVID-19 in the United States.“Let there not be any confusion about that. It’s not 9,000 deaths from COVID-19; it’s 180,000 plus deaths,” Fauci added.When asked about the CDC’s new guidelines on COVID-19 testing, Fauci admitted, “That did create some confusion.”“The way that sentence was said, it gave the impression that they’re not concerned about community spread and that people who are asymptomatic should not be tested,” he said. “There’s no doubt that there are asymptomatic infection and that asymptomatic people can transmit and that you can and should test asymptomatic people.”“What the guideline was trying to do was to try to make the point that not everyone who wants to be tested should be tested; only if you need to be tested,” he continued. “Understandably, that was confusing. Hopefully, that’s been straightened out now.”Sep 01, 7:16 amArizona State University reports over 800 casesArizona State University said it now has 803 known cases of COVID-19 among its students and staff.Since Aug. 1, the public research university has collected test results from 40,402 students and employees so far. As of Sunday, 775 students and 28 staff and faculty members had tested positive for COVID-19. All positive cases are in isolation, according to the school.“It is our expectation that COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon and that we must find a way to operate the university in a way that accounts for the ongoing presence of the virus,” Arizona State University said in an update posted on its website Monday night. “The incidence of testing has increased as we launched periodic testing of a statistically significant percentage of the on-campus population. ASU maintains a low positivity rate with students and an even lower positivity rate with faculty and staff.”Most of the cases — 428 — were among people living off campus in the metropolitan Phoenix area. Another 323 are in isolation on the Tempe campus, where a total of 9,645 students live. The remaining are in isolation on either the downtown Phoenix or West campuses, where a collective total of 1,717 students live.The university said there are currently no known cases at the Polytechnic campus, where 757 students live.Sep 01, 5:44 amRussia’s case count surpasses one millionRussia has recorded 4,729 new cases of COVID-19 and 123 related deaths over the past 24 hours, the country’s coronavirus response headquarters said Tuesday morning.The nation’s cumulative total now stands at 1,000,048 confirmed cases with 17,299 deaths.Russia is the fourth country in the world to reach the one million mark of COVID-19 diagnoses, after the United States, Brazil and India, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.Sep 01, 4:10 amUS case count tops six millionThere were 33,888 new cases of COVID-19 identified in the United States on Monday, bringing the country’s cumulative total soaring past six million, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Monday’s tally is far below the country’s record set on July 16, when 77,255 new cases were identified in a 24-hour reporting period.An additional 595 coronavirus-related deaths were also recorded Monday. The latest daily death toll is well under the record 2,666 new fatalities that were reported on April 17.A total of 6,031,013 people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 183,598 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up and crossing 70,000 for the first time in mid-July.However, the numbers of new COVID-19 cases and new deaths in the United States have both decreased by substantial amounts in week-over-week comparisons, according to an internal memo from the Federal Emergency Management Agency obtained by ABC News last week.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Scheme tipped to gain ground on skills gaps

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article The Government’s New Deal has the potential to reduce skills shortages, according to a report from the Industrial Society, published this week.Research on the controversial welfare-to-work scheme shows that where New Deal advisers work closely with employers, the scheme can find sustained jobs for “hard-to-place” young unemployed people. In the past the New Deal scheme has been plagued by high drop-out rates.The New Deal: A Good Deal Better confirms a pattern of weak basic skills among many adult job-seekers, but also indicates that some merely lack confidence. Employers which have recruited successfully have invested heavily in training.“Asda and Peugeot gained much out of the New Deal because they adopted the approach of ‘give us the raw recruits and we’ll train them’ – rather than crossing their fingers in the hope that the right people would apply. This has also been the case with Anglian Water,” the report concludes.www.indsoc.co.uk Scheme tipped to gain ground on skills gapsOn 5 Sep 2000 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
