first_imgForget the Synairgen share price! Here are my top 2 pharma stocks to buy right now Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Image source: Getty Images Yesterday was quite a day for investors involved in Synairgen (LSE: SNG). The Synairgen share price rocketed 420% over the course of one day! This was mostly down to positive results surrounding a potential Covid-19 treatment. The trial undertaken showed that those given the treatment had a 79% better chance of recovery than those who’d taken a placebo instead. Even though I applaud this success, as an investor there are several reasons why I would actually invest elsewhere in top pharma stocks, instead of in Synairgen.Market efficiencyWithout trying to be boring, there’s a economic theory called efficient market hypothesis. In short, one of the points it makes is that the stock market perfectly takes on new information and prices it into the stock over a very short period. After this, the share price completely reflects any publicly available information about the stock. From that point of view, the huge rally yesterday was the market pricing in the success of the treatment. So there could be very limited further upside in the Synairgen share price.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…This would make me look towards a stock such as AstraZeneca instead. The vaccine under development there (AZD1222) is still going through trials, but it looks promising. So if I was an investor looking to profit from a successful vaccine or treatment announcement and subsequent production, I’d look to invest here instead.Track recordsIf we’re being honest, most of us hadn’t heard of Synairgen at the start of this year. Sadly, the fate of the firm after the rally of yesterday very much depends on the treatment. If it doesn’t deliver, then investors could be in for a tough long haul. That’s why I tend to stay away from small-cap, AIM listed firms.So instead of investing in that share price, I’d look to an established top pharma stock to buy now instead. For example, take GlaxoSmithKline. The FTSE 100 stalwart has a market capitalisation of over £82bn. Synairgen has a market capitalisation of £282mn. As that’s sinking in, I’ll keep going. GSK directly invested in a firm called CureVac earlier this year, so would stand to gain from any vaccine made there. Yet even without a vaccine, GSK is a profitable firm that investors don’t have to worry about being a flash-in-the-pan. Also, don’t forget that GSK is still paying out a dividend to investors.Synairgen share price: better alternativesIf you did manage to invest in Synairgen before the announcement, or even during the course of the day, you likely reaped huge rewards. But for those looking to buy now, ask yourself why. Just having a fear of missing out is not a good enough reason to invest in a stock like this. Rather, take a step back and look at it objectively. If you can’t back up the reasons why you’d invest in the Synairgen share price now, then I’d suggest looking at other firms instead. AstraZeneca and GSK are both top pharma stocks that get you similar exposure, but with much lower risk. That is where I’d be looking to target right now. 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.

first_img February 25, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Website editor freed conditionally but still accused of belonging to terrorist group News News Organisation Receive email alerts News Aylin Duruoglu, the editor the Vatan newspaper’s website, Gazetevatan.com, was granted a conditional release by an Istanbul court on 23 February, 10 months after her arrest on 27 April for alleged links to a clandestine armed group called Devrimci Karargah (Revolutionary Headquarters). Nine other people who were arrested in the same operation, including Mehmet Yesiltepe, an employee of the magazine Devrimci Hareket (Revolutionary Movement), were also freed conditionally. Duruoglu continues to be accused of belonging to the group because she knew one of its members, Orhan Yilmazkaya, who was killed during the 27 April operation.“We are relieved to learn of these releases but we point out that they come after 10 months of detention,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is ridiculous to accuse Duruoglu of belonging to an armed group simply because she knew one of its members, something she does not deny (http://www.rsf.org/Woman-journalist-held-for-past.html). We call for the charges against her and Yesiltepe to be withdrawn at once.”Duruoglu had been held in Istanbul’s Bakirköy prison since her arrest, while Yesiltepe was imprisoned in the northwestern city of Tekirdag. The police operation against all those with supposed links to Revolutionary Headquarters came after the group claimed responsibility for the 1 September 2008 bombing of the headquarters of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), in which one person died, and an August 2008 bombing at an army barracks in Üsküdar (on the Asian side of Istanbul).In a statement to the court, Duruoglu said: “For the past 10 months, I have been trying to remember something that would explain my detention. I am before you because I was unable to foresee that a person circulating freely on the streets and with a place in society could be a terrorist. I had never heard of this organisation before my arrest. I had lunch with Orhan Yilmazkaya. I regard myself not as a suspect but as a victim of the terror. I have worked for news media for the past 15 years. I had no reason to collaborate with terrorists.”The next hearing in the case has been set for 29 June.(Photo : Vatan gazetesi) Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Turkeycenter_img News TurkeyEurope – Central Asia TurkeyEurope – Central Asia April 2, 2021 Find out more April 2, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor to go further Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism lawlast_img read more

Special Weather Statement: Flood Watch

Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,


first_imgThe October 2018 storm caused road closures, but continued work to mitigate flooding has lessened the problem, residents say. The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Coastal Flood Watch in effect for Ocean City from 7 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 20) through 7 p.m. Friday (Dec. 21).Heavy rain is expected to coincide with strong southeast winds and full-moon tides. Water levels are expected to peak in the hours around high tide on the bay side of Ocean City at about 6:40 a.m. Friday.The National Weather Service predicts a water level of 6.1 feet on the mean low water (MLW) scale for the high tide on Friday morning. That prediction is just below the threshold of moderate coastal flooding, but conditions could be worse if heavy rain coincides with high tide. Visit www.ocnj.us/octides to compare that prediction to recent and historic tide levels.Residents should monitor conditions and be prepared to move vehicles from areas that typically experience flooding. The roads closer to the beach including Central and Wesley avenues are at higher elevation. Parking will be available at the Trinity United Methodist Church at 20 North Shore Road in Marmora (please read letter from Trinity  if you take advantage of this service).For your safety and the protection of your vehicle and neighboring properties, never attempt to drive through flood waters, and do not drive around barricades. City crews are out clearing storm drains in advance of the storm, but storm preparation can include making sure inlets near your home are clear of debris.For Police and Fire Department emergencies, call 911. For non-emergencies, call 609-399-9111.last_img read more

Faust calls global health one of her main priorities

March 1, 2021

first_imgDeclaring the University’s efforts to improve the state of global health knowledge, education, and capacity building to be one of her “very highest priorities” as president of Harvard, Drew Faust today (May 18) announced the appointment of Sue J. Goldie, Roger Irving Lee Professor of Public Health and director of the Center for Health Decision Science at the Harvard School of Public Health, as the director of the Harvard Institute for Global Health (HIGH).Faust also announced that the work of HIGH is so integral to the long-term focus and goals of Harvard that the organization that began its existence as an experimental faculty “initiative” has been granted permanent institute status.“I believe that this is truly a moment of special possibility for global health, both in the world and here at Harvard,” said Faust. “If we needed to be reminded of this, we have been this past year, first with the global H1N1 pandemic, and then when the earthquake struck Haiti and we saw the world come together.“We need to engage and equip our students, who are telling us in ever increasing numbers that they want to engage in the global health effort,” Faust continued. “We need to support the very best researchers and the work of our outstanding faculty, in fields stretching across the spectrum of inquiry from immunology to epidemiology, health policy, history, molecular biology, and philosophy. I have every confidence that Sue Goldie, who has already demonstrated her outstanding scholarship, leadership, and collaborative skills, is the person to lead this special effort.”The appointment of Goldie, a MacArthur Foundation “genius award” recipient, marks the end of a yearlong, international search for a new director for HIGH. Goldie has been involved with HIGH since 2007, and as co-director of the executive committee worked to bring faculty from all parts of the University together, consistently advocating on behalf of junior faculty interested in global health.Because HIGH is above all a collaborative organization dedicated to educating and training the next generation of global health leaders, Faust also appointed two faculty leaders to direct the critically important educational and training efforts.Paul Farmer, the Maude and Lillian Presley Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS), will oversee global health medical education and physician training. Farmer, also a MacArthur Fellowship winner, is chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at HMS, professor in the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard School of Public Health, chief of the Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and is perhaps best known internationally as a co-founder of the global nonprofit Partners In Health.David Cutler, the Otto Eckstein Professor of Applied Economics in Harvard’s Department of Economics and a member of the faculty of the Harvard Kennedy School, will direct undergraduate and graduate programs in global health. Cutler, who worked on health care reform in the Clinton administration and served as a health care adviser to the Obama campaign, is a member of HIGH’s faculty executive committee, served as HIGH’s interim director for the past year, and led the effort to create a secondary concentration in global health at Harvard College.Goldie said, “Strong leadership in global health already resides in the faculty of the Medical School, School of Public Health, and academic hospitals. As the faculty director for the Harvard Institute for Global Health, I see myself principally as a coordinator, facilitator, and collaborator. With a leadership team comprised of myself, Paul Farmer, and David Cutler, I am confident we can create a University-wide community that is bound by a sense of shared mission.”“Global health is an intellectual and practical topic of tremendous interest to our undergraduate and graduate students,” said Michael D. Smith, dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and John H. Finley Jr. Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences. “Professors Goldie, Farmer, and Cutler are exactly the kind of seasoned leaders we need for such an important, University-wide institute. I am also thrilled that each brings to the institute a deep commitment to Harvard’s extensive educational offerings in global health.”Harvard Provost Steven E. Hyman said that granting institute status to HIGH and appointing Goldie “mark a very significant step along what has been a 15-year journey toward a truly collaborative and more interdisciplinary Harvard. Global health is an area in which we already have world-class researchers, clinicians, teachers, and students,” Hyman said. “By bringing them all together as parts of a coordinated whole, without boundaries or silos, we expect to have far more impact than we would expect from the already considerable sum of the many parts of our global health effort.”“It is my conviction that for Harvard to remain a leader in the burgeoning field of global health, we must invest heavily in linking service to training and research,” Farmer said. “Since global health is not a discipline, but rather a collection of problems, we need to draw on the strengths of the Medical School, the School of Public Health, and the teaching hospitals — and especially on the work of our partner sites — to help tackle the biggest challenge of our time: understanding and improving delivery of services in this country and in others. Global health is a new paradigm and very different from its predecessor paradigm, international health. Boston is on the globe, too,” Farmer noted.Cutler said he sees HIGH coordinating the teaching and training of students at all levels. “For undergraduates, this means having courses for those who want to learn a little, up to those who want to make global health their life’s focus,” he said. “It also means providing students with the ability to interact with the world and practice what they learn. For graduate students, this involves direct training in global health issues, access to people and research sites, and integration of the skills of many different disciplines. It will take a collaboration of faculty all across Harvard to make this happen. I know the faculty are eager to participate, and I look forward to helping organize them.”The global health leadership appointments were praised by both Julio Frenk, dean of the Harvard School of Public Health, and Jeffrey Flier, dean of Harvard Medical School.“Sue Goldie, Paul Farmer, and David Cutler are uniquely qualified to lead HIGH to a new stage of development,” Frenk said. “The key to achieving successfully the institute’s mission will continue to be the ability to build bridges across the amazing intellectual capital of the entire University. Professors Goldie, Farmer, and Cutler have exceptional skills in team building and mentoring. They are also deeply committed to the educational mission of HIGH, as demonstrated by their crucial role in expanding the course offerings in global health and by their own dedication to teaching.”Flier said, “This is a signal moment in our effort to bring together under a single banner the disparate parts of a world-class program in global health. I have no doubt that Sue Goldie, Paul Farmer, and David Cutler have the vision, collaborative instincts, and determination to bring people together in this common cause, and that together they will create a truly collaborative, interdisciplinary program that will benefit not only all the world’s peoples, but also will benefit Harvard as a university.”Trained as a physician, decision scientist, and public health researcher, Goldie has broad interests that include using evidence-based policy to narrow the gap between rich and poor, leveraging science and technology as tools for global diplomacy, strengthening capacity through sustainable nonexploitative partnerships, and fostering innovation in education locally and globally. Drawn to health problems in the most vulnerable populations, she conducts rigorous analysis using the methods and tools of decision science, which uses mathematics to solve resource problems, to inform complex and difficult policy decisions. Her analytic work relates to a wide range of topics — from vaccine-preventable diseases to maternal mortality — in many settings, from disparities in the United States to broad failures of public health delivery in the poorest countries.An accomplished scientist, Goldie has published 150 original research papers and has been principal investigator on awards from the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Doris Duke Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation, which in 2005 awarded her its grant “for genius and creativity” in applying the tools of decision science to combat major public health problems.She has received numerous teaching and mentorship awards, including the Harvard School of Public Health mentoring award and the Everett Mendelsohn Excellence in Mentoring Award from Harvard University. She serves on the Standing Committee on Health Policy, teaches one of the largest classes at the School of Public Health in decision science, and this year also taught a new undergraduate class as part of the Gen Ed curriculum.A member of the Institute of Medicine, Goldie is a graduate of Union College and Albany Medical College. She completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at Yale-New Haven Hospital, Yale University School of Medicine, and earned her M.P.H. from the Harvard School of Public Health in 1997. She joined the faculty of the School of Public Health in 1998.last_img read more
