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. Investing your hard-earned cash after seeing the markets drop over a third of their value may seem like a tough ask. Volatility is still in the air, with the bulls and bears duking it out. Who will come out ahead? No doubt there is uncertainty in the markets, although following a long and successful history of creating shareholder value, there is one FTSE 100 growth stock that has held up well this year. And I believe it looks set to continue its impressive run. Croda International (LSE: CRDA) creates, makes, and sells specialty chemicals for a diverse range of products,including health and beauty, engine lubricants, plastics, and many more. It is one of the few FTSE 100 stocks still in positive territory for the year to date.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…Croda has swiftly adapted to the Covid-19 crisis, adhering to government advice across its international footprint. All 19 of its manufacturing sites remained operational given its critical supplier positioning to several industries including health care, crop care, cleaning, and sanitisers.Croda’s segments are benefitting from positive tailwinds the company likes to call “megatrends”. Its Life Sciences business is delivering better health and well-being through disease prevention, and better crop management systems to feed growing populations with less environmental impact. The Personal Care business is looking after consumers with growing incomes seeking clean and natural beauty, and more effective solar protection. Meanwhile the Performance Technologies business is all about renewable technologies, for affordable and clean energy, helping customers meet their climate action goals.It seems the public can’t get enough of FTSE 100 constituent Croda’s creations. Its patented Matrixyl 3000 peptides are one of two key ingredients in a new face cream to be sold at Boots. No7 Advanced Retinol 1.5% Complex Night Concentrate, priced at £34, reportedly has a waitlist of 100,000 people!Croda has a strong balance sheet, giving it sufficient liquidity to navigate any extended period of uncertainty. It has no material debt maturities due before 2023. At 31 March 2020, it had committed funding in place of £1,076m, undrawn committed facilities of £457m, and £91m in cash.Croda’s long-term success for investors is nothing short of extraordinary. Over the past 20 years, shares in the FTSE 100 company plus dividends have netted investors a whopping 2,600% return! It has an impressive history of acquisitions and organic growth, with 15 major additions to its portfolio since 2012. It plans to increase its presence in key geographies, expand product offerings, acquire adjacent businesses and technologies, as well as continue scaling to improve existing margins. Coupled with a healthy financial position, I believe Croda looks well placed to continue delivering these exceptional returns for investors. Mark Garro has no position in any share mentioned.

Serving the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, Glendale, and Burbank through programs supporting mental health care, early childhood development, school-based behavioral health, and youth and family services, Foothill Family employees committed more than a year and countless hours to earn accreditation. Organizations pursue accreditation to demonstrate the implementation of best practice standards in the field of human services. COA evaluated all aspects of Foothill Family’s programs, services, management, and administration.Foothill Family considers national re-accreditation through COA to be a tremendous achievement,” said Steve Allen, Foothill Family Chief Executive Officer. “As a trusted leader in behavioral healthcare celebrating 90 years of service in our community, we are proud to be recognized as a provider that successfully adheres to high performance standards and delivers top-quality care to its clients.”COA accreditation is an objective, independent, and reliable validation of an agency’s performance. The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organization’s administration, management, and service delivery functions against international standards of best practice. The standards driving accreditation ensure that services are well-coordinated, culturally competent, evidence-based, outcomes-oriented, and provided by a skilled and supported workforce. COA accreditation demonstrates accountability in the management of resources, sets standardized best practice thresholds for service and administration, and increases organizational capacity and accountability by creating a framework for ongoing quality improvement.To achieve COA accreditation, Foothill Family first provided written evidence of compliance with the COA standards. Thereafter, a group of specially trained volunteer peer reviewers confirmed adherence to these standards during a series of on-site interviews with trustees, staff and clients.Based on their findings, COA’s volunteer-based Accreditation Commission voted that Foothill Family had successfully met the criteria for accreditation for the maximum term through 2019.An endorsement of COA and the value of its accreditation process is reflected in it being named by the U.S. State Department as the sole national independent accrediting body under the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption to accredit intercountry adoption service providers. In addition, COA is the only national accreditor designated by the U.S. Department of Defense to develop accreditation standards and processes for human service programs provided to military personnel and their families.Founded in 1977, COA is an independent, not-for-profit accreditor of the full continuum of community-based behavioral health care and social service organizations in the United States and Canada. More than 2,000 organizations — voluntary, public, and proprietary; local and statewide; large and small — have either successfully achieved COA accreditation or are currently engaged in the process. Presently, COA has a total of 47 service standards that are applicable to over 125 different types of programs. To learn more about COA, please visit www.COAnet.org.Foothill Family was founded in 1926 and provides a range of community-based mental health and social services to at-risk populations in the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, Glendale, and Burbank. Its mission, to build brighter futures for children and families, has helped Foothill Family earn a reputation for providing high-quality services aimed at empowering families and strengthening communities. Programs include mental health and school-based counseling for children, child abuse prevention and treatment, domestic violence prevention and treatment, early child development programs, services for pregnant teens and their babies, family counseling, and youth development. Last year, more than 24,000 children and their families benefited from Foothill Family’s life-changing programs.

Caltech Researcher Unveils Sensor that Rapidly Detects COVID-19 Infection Status, Severity, and Immunity

Credit: CaltechOne feature of the COVID-19 virus that makes it so difficult to contain is that it can be easily spread to others by a person who has yet to show any signs of infection. The carrier of the virus might feel perfectly well and go about their daily business—taking the virus with them to work, to the home of a family member, or to public gatherings.A crucial part of the global effort to stem the spread of the pandemic, therefore, is the development of tests that can rapidly identify infections in people who are not yet symptomatic.Now, Caltech researchers have developed a new type of multiplexed test (a test that combines multiple kinds of data) with a low-cost sensor that may enable the at-home diagnosis of a COVID infection through rapid analysis of small volumes of saliva or blood, without the involvement of a medical professional, in less than 10 minutes.The research was conducted in the lab of Wei Gao, assistant professor in the Andrew and Peggy Cherng department of medical engineering. Previously, Gao and his team have developed wireless sensors that can monitor conditions such as gout, as well as stress levels, through the detection of extremely low levels of specific compounds in blood, saliva, or sweat.Gao’s sensors are made of graphene, a sheet-like form of carbon. A plastic sheet etched with a laser generates a 3D graphene structure with tiny pores. Those pores create a large amount of surface area on the sensor, which makes it sensitive enough to detect, with high accuracy, compounds that are only present in very small amounts. In this sensor, the graphene structures are coupled with antibodies, immune system molecules that are sensitive to specific proteins, like those on the surface of a COVID virus, for example.Previous versions of the sensor were impregnated with antibodies for the hormone cortisol, which is associated with stress, and uric acid, which at high concentrations causes gout. The new version of the sensor, which Gao has named SARS-CoV-2 RapidPlex, contains antibodies and proteins that allow it to detect the presence of the virus itself; antibodies created by the body to fight the virus; and chemical markers of inflammation, which indicate the severity of the COVID-19 infection.“This is the only telemedicine platform I’ve seen that can give information about the infection in three types of data with a single sensor,” Gao says. “In as little as a few minutes, we can simultaneously check these levels, so we get a full picture about the infection, including early infection, immunity, and severity.”Established COVID-testing technologies usually take hours or even days to produce results. Those technologies also require expensive, complicated equipment, whereas Gao’s system is simple and compact.So far, the device has been tested only in the lab with a small number of blood and saliva samples obtained for medical research purposes from individuals who have tested positive or negative for COVID-19. Though preliminary results indicate that the sensor is highly accurate, a larger-scale test with real-world patients rather than laboratory samples must be performed, Gao cautions, to definitively determine its accuracy.With the pilot study now completed, Gao next plans to test how long the sensors last with regular use, and to begin testing them with hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Following in-hospital testing, he would like to study the suitability of the tests for in-home use. Following testing, the device will need to receive regulatory approval before it is available for widespread use at home.“Our ultimate aim really is home use,” he says. “In the following year, we plan to mail them to high-risk individuals for at-home testing. And in the future, this platform could be modified for other types of infectious disease testing at home.”The paper describing the research, titled, “SARS-CoV-2 RapidPlex: A Graphene-based Multiplexed Telemedicine Platform for Rapid and Low-Cost COVID-19 Diagnosis and Monitoring,” has been published online and will appear in the December issue of the journal Matter. Co-authors are former postdoctoral scholar in medical engineering Rebeca M. Torrente-Rodríguez, medical engineering graduate students Heather Lukas, Jiaobing Tu (MS ’20), Jihong Min (MS ’19), Yiran Yang (MS ’18), and Changhao Xu (MS ’20); and Harry B. Rossiter of the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.Funding for the research was provided by the National Institutes of Health; the Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program, a California state agency focused on reducing tobacco use; the Merkin Institute for Translational Research; and the Translational Research Institute for Space Health.

Limerick Civil Defence take up residence at new Dock Road headquarters

This new facility responds to the changing needs and roles of the Civil Defence and will be of benefit to all volunteer members as well as the general public into the future”, she said.

Coronavirus live updates: ICU nurse becomes first New Yorker to receive vaccine

first_imgDec 14, 8:21 am‘I will be getting it,’ US surgeon general says of COVID-19 vaccineU.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams said he plans to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as he’s allowed to.“I will be getting it when they tell me I can get it — that’s how confident I am in its safety,” Adams told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview Monday on Good Morning America.Adams said the priority is administering the vaccine to nursing home residents and health care workers.“I still practice medicine. I also travel around the country and deploy as part of my job as surgeon general,” he noted. “So I imagine I’ll be in that first tier. But again, we want to make sure we’re getting the people who are most likely to be impacted vaccinated first.”“We also recognize that there’s a symbolic part of someone like me getting vaccinated, giving people confidence that they can get vaccinated,” he added.Adams advised those who aren’t in the priority group to get vaccinated against the flu in the meantime and to discuss any concerns they have regarding the COVID-19 vaccine with a health care professional.“You should be going right now to get your flu shot if you haven’t already and talk to your doctor about vaccinations,” he said. “Get your questions answered because it is ok, it is normal to have questions. What’s not normal is to let misinformation rule you. Vaccines will sometimes give you a sore arm. They can give you a little bit of a mild fever or you can feel a little bit bad, but that’s normal — that means the vaccine is actually working.”The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine was authorized for emergency use in the United States on Friday. A final analysis of a massive Phase 3 clinical trial showed the vaccine is roughly 95% effective in preventing symptomatic COVID-19, which Adams said “means we can put this pandemic away if we get enough people vaccinated.”“We still need to be careful into the at least second quarter of next year because these vaccines were tested with an outcome of severe disease, not a prevention of infection,” he added. “So we don’t know yet whether they will prevent infection, but they could prevent you from being in the hospital and ultimately passing from this virus. Still incredibly important to get vaccinated, but we’re going to need to continue to wear our masks, wash our hands and watch our distance as we slowly start to reopen with the assistance of these great vaccines.”Dec 14, 7:34 amFedEx says it has completed 1st deliveries of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in USFedEx announced Monday morning that it has “safely” completed its first deliveries of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses across the United States.“We’re honoured to be able to use our network to transport these critical vaccines in the U.S., and eventually the world,” the Memphis-based shipping giant posted on its official Twitter account.The vaccine was authorized for emergency use in the United States on Friday.Dec 14, 5:09 amUS reports over 190,000 new casesThere were 190,920 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in the United States on Sunday, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.It’s the 41st straight day that the U.S. has reported over 100,000 newly diagnosed infections.
