The AstraZeneca share price is climbing. I’d buy for my Stocks & Shares ISA today

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Alan Oscroft | Sunday, 30th August, 2020 | More on: AZN AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) has, unsurprisingly, been largely immune to the 2020 stock market crash. When we’re in a pandemic, pharmaceuticals companies can look nicely defensive to investors. As a result, the AstraZeneca share price has gained more than 10% year-to-date, while the FTSE 100 has lost 20%AstraZeneca has been making headlines this week, largely thanks to Donald Trump. The company is developing a Covid-19 vaccine in partnership with Oxford University. And the the US President is reportedly keen to get his hands on it ahead of the upcoming election. That would mean bypassing the FDA’s usual regulatory requirements and awarding emergency use authorisation for the vaccine, based on studies done in the UK.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…Let’s not get too excitedBut the Oxford and AstraZeneca researchers are pouring cold water on the story. They’ve denied they’re in any talks with the Trump administration. And UK trials to date are said to be too small to provide the needed data. In addition, the UK government has already earmarked early vaccine supplies for domestic use. So don’t get your hopes up of big US profits boosting the AstraZeneca share price any time soon.In other news, AstraZeneca has commenced a new phase 1 trial. It involves a combination of two monoclonal antibodies for the prevention and treatment of Covid-19. But the trial will be a small one, covering just 48 healthy individuals aged between 18 and 55. It’s really just a safety trial at this stage.Is this good for investors?So what does all this say to investors? I think we can take mixed messages from it. Firstly, we’re not going to see blockbuster drug profits from Covid-19 vaccines. At least not while the pandemic is still on, and drugs firms have pledged to keep costs down. The AstraZeneca share price is not going to be boosted by big vaccine profits this year.But looking at the wider picture, AstraZeneca could be on a path to significant longer-term profits. Firms are pushing vaccine research way harder than usual, with government financial support, and are fast-tracking developments. The progress that’s likely to be made by the end of 2021 could well have taken five years or more if we were facing less of an emergency.And it’s looking less and less like Covid-19 will be a ‘vaccinate once and it will go away’ virus. Countries have already reported different strains, and strong immunity is far from guaranteed. I think there’s every chance we could end up with a similar situation to influenza, with new vaccines needed annually. Only they’ll be a lot more urgent.The AstraZeneca share price in 10 yearsThe knowledge gained from pioneering new techniques will surely benefit AstraZeneca in the long run. And it could help to seriously beef up the firm’s immunology pipeline in the coming years.In short, I’m not seeing a get-rich-quick opportunity based on Covid-19 research. But I am seeing ever more reason to invest in AstraZeneca for the long term. I really think the AstraZeneca share price could do very well over the next decade.

Battling Insulin Resistance

first_img 1 COMMENT Mama Mia Reply Do you have difficulty losing abdominal fat? Do you crave sweets and carbohydrates on a daily basis? Do you feel sleepy after eating, or shaky when you go without food for several hours? Do any of your first-degree relatives (parents, siblings, children) have diabetes or escalating levels of central obesity? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, there’s a high probability that you’re one of the 80 million Americans with insulin resistance, also known as pre-diabetes.What is insulin? How does it work?Insulin is, by its very nature, an anabolic hormone. This means its primary job is to build and store. It’s important to the body because it allows blood sugar (or glucose) to get into your cells and provide them with energy. When we eat, our bodies break down food into glucose in the small intestine.Glucose travels through the bloodstream looking for cells that need energy. To get inside those cells, insulin is needed. It’s the key that unlocks your cells so glucose can get inside and deliver energy. When it arrives, it tells the cells to activate transporters that pull the glucose through cell walls. When the glucose moves into the cells, it creates energy that we need for everything we do – from exercising to thinking to working.What is insulin resistance?Insulin resistance occurs when your body becomes less able to use the insulin produced by your pancreas. When glucose moves into your bloodstream, your pancreas matches it with the right amount.This “resistance” means although there may be insulin in the blood stream, it’s not enough to unlock the cells and even more insulin is required to maintain normal glucose levels. Once your body is unable to compensate completely, your glucose levels become elevated and diabetes ensues. Insulin resistance develops in at least one out of every three American adults.What are the effects?Unfortunately, for most Americans, the principal effect of high insulin is the storage of fat (central adiposity). Simply put, the higher your circulating insulin levels, the higher your chances of developing the dreaded “tire” around your midsection.Insulin also plays a central role in all of the components of the metabolic syndrome, namely elevated fasting glucose, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, low HDL (good) cholesterol and increased waist circumference. High insulin levels also contribute to elevated testosterone levels and irregular menstruation in women (PCOS), low testosterone levels (hypogonadism) in men and low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).How it be identified?The best way to diagnose insulin resistance, or pre-diabetes, is to actually measure insulin in the blood (normal fasting level is < 5 uIU/ml). Other helpful laboratory measurements include fasting glucose (normal < 100 mg/dl), HgbA1c (three month average of glucose levels; normal < 5.7%), and Glycomarkâ (which approximates glucose peaks over the past two weeks). Finally, a darkening of the skin creases in the neck, armpits and/or groin (so-called acanthosis nigricans) is a reliable clinical sign of insulin overproduction.Can it be treated?Fortunately, high insulin levels can be normalized with a combination of lifestyle optimization (Low Glycemic Load Diet and exercise as tolerated) and may or may not include a medication called metformin. By aggressively treating at this early stage, you can prevent, or at least postpone, the progression to diabetes. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Monday Morning Quarterback: Wekiva rallies, Apopka struggles

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Wekiva 25, Winter Park 22The Wekiva Mustangs overcame six turnovers and a 19-7 halftime deficit to defeat Winter Park 25-22 and remain undefeated. The win improves Wekiva’s record to 3-0, and will likely preserve its #1 state ranking in the AP 8A poll.Do it all senior Brandon Hill rushed for three touchdowns including two-yarder in the fourth quarter to give the Mustangs their only lead the entire game with 45 seconds left in the game.Wekiva will return to action at home on September 21st against the Olympia Titans (0-3). Kickoff is at 7 PM.Lakeland 37, Apopka 20The Lakeland Dreadnaughts scored on a 78-yard kickoff return and blocked a punt in the first half to defeat the Apopka Blue Darters 37-20 for the second straight season. Lakeland (3-0) held the Blue Darters’ rushing game to only 151 yards after coming off a school record 615 yards in a 33-28 win over Bartram Trail the previous week. It was the first game Apopka played without its leading rusher Jecoryan Davis-Hamilton who will miss the remainder of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a medial collateral ligament.Apopka took an early lead when running back Akeem Brown scored on a four-yard touchdown run, giving Apopka a 6-0 after a failed extra point attempt on the opening drive of the game.But Lakeland answered on a 78-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, and then blocked an Apopka punt on its very next drive and scored on the next play on a two-yard touchdown run to lead 13-6.The Blue Darters evened the score at 13-13 in the second quarter on another Brown touchdown run, this time from seven yards out.However, Lakeland scored two more times before halftime on a 70-yard touchdown run by Demarkcus Bowman, and then on a 35-yard field goal to lead 23-13 at intermission.Brown scored his third touchdown in the third quarter to cut Lakeland’s lead to 30-20 on a 36-yard run, but the Blue Darters never got closer.The loss drops Apopka to 2-1 on the season and may threaten their #4 ranking in the Associated Press State 8-A Top 10 poll.The Blue Darters host defending state 8-A champion Dr. Phillips this Friday at Roger Williams Field on the campus of Apopka High School.

Queer Liberation March resurrects spirit of Stonewall

first_imgAt least 45,000 people joined the Queer Liberation March here on June 30 in an exuberant and powerful celebration honoring the legacy of queer liberation struggles, past and present.Organized by the Reclaim Pride Coalition, the march and following rally renounced the commercialization of the annual Pride event, which has been dominated by corporations. There were no corporations, floats or police contingent in the march. Rather it expressed solidarity with immigrants, the Black Lives Matter movement and all oppressed people. Marchers reclaim Pride from corporations and copsHeld on the 50th anniversary of the historic Stonewall Rebellion, the march followed the route of the first Pride march and captured its spirit. It began at Sheridan Square Park in the West Village and went up Sixth Avenue to Bryant Park, where a second wave of participants joined, and then continued to Central Park’s Great Lawn. There were sit-ins along the route, one of which protested the confinement of people with HIV in immigrant detention centers. A trans Latinx contingent and groups supporting abortion rights and Palestine marched, as well as contingents opposing U.S. wars and militarization. Workers World Party, People’s Power Assemblies NYC and Shut It Down were part of the Abolition contingent, which called for the abolition of cops, prisons and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The WWP banner proclaiming “Queer As In — Fuck the Police” got an enthusiastic response from the crowd.There were two moments of silence. The first was to remember and honor those lost to homophobia, transphobia, racism and sexism, to HIV/AIDS and violence in all its forms. The second was in tribute to the trans women of color murdered throughout the country. The march also honored all those killed by police or while incarcerated, as well as those who have died by gun violence or by lack of access to housing and medical care.The rally also ignited the spirit of fightback of the original marches. Speakers included members of the Gay Liberation Front and Larry Kramer, one of the founders of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP). A statement was read from Chelsea Manning, a trans woman and Iraq war whistleblower currently incarcerated for refusing to testify before a grand jury. “We are here for trans women of color, who, despite leading the fight at Stonewall 50 years ago, continue to be attacked and killed on our streets, in jails and prisons, and in our own communities,” Manning wrote. “We are here for Layleen Polanco, who just a few weeks ago was found dead in solitary confinement at Rikers Island. We are here for Johana Medina León, a 25-year-old asylum seeker from El Salvador, who died in ICE custody on the first day of Pride Month. We are here for Ashanti Carmon, Zoe Spears, Muhlaysia Booker and the eight other trans women who have been murdered this year alone.” As the thousands spread out on the Great Lawn in Central Park, they continued to respond to the speakers with cheers and applause all afternoon. The majority of the speakers were queer and trans people of color who reflect today’s wide diversity of struggles and issues. Powerful talks by Black and Latina trans women lifted up crucial issues they face. LaLa Zannell and Cecilia Gentili led the crowd in the chant “Sex work is work!” They urged the movement for queer and trans liberation to defend all workers against exploitation and police repression. Loan Tran, a queer trans organizer from Durham, N.C., expressed solidarity with the Central Park Five, who in 1989 were wrongly convicted and sent to prison for crimes they did not commit, and with migrants being forced out of their homes. “Don’t we think it’s time to shut down those concentration camps at the border?” Tran asked. “The crisis at the border is a crisis of capitalism, it’s a crisis of imperialism, it’s a crisis of colonialism. The thousands who are being forced to come to the fake U.S.-Mexico border are coming as a direct result of the pillage and plunder and exploitation of their resources and communities. The thousands coming to the border are owed reparations for the wealth that has been stolen from them for decades and for centuries.”Tran called on the crowd to organize to make their ancestors proud. “Open the borders, free Palestine, no war in Iran, down with imperialism, down with white supremacy,” they declared.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

International media freedom delegation in Croatia: some improvements, old and new issues

first_img November 23, 2020 Find out more January 18, 2018 – Updated on June 1, 2018 International media freedom delegation in Croatia: some improvements, old and new issues Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union The delegation meets the President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović / © office of the President of Croatia Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Follow the news on Croatia June 2, 2021 Find out more News CroatiaEurope – Central Asia Reports and statisticsProtecting journalistsMedia independence Judicial harassmentEconomic pressure News After the fact-finding mission in June 2016 produced particularly bad results, the representatives of the South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), the Association of European Journalists (AEJ), the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF), the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) and Reporters without Borders (RSF) did find a slightly more positive situation at the beginning of 2018.First of all, the new conservative–liberal (HDZ–HNS) coalition at least has media freedom as a matter of the utmost importance for a member state of the European Union on its agenda. However, “it still has a long way to go“, said Oliver Vujovic of SEEMO.Pauline Adès-Mével of RSF stressed that it’s not a good sign if a delegation visits a member country of the European Union twice in two years. “Now ranked 74th in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index, Croatia has fallen steadily in the index since joining the European Union in 2013, by a total of ten places in less than five years. It must be hoped that Croatia will not take the same road as Bulgaria, which began falling as soon as it joined the EU in 2007 and now has the worst ranking of any EU member,” she added.In meetings with the President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, the Minister of Culture of Croatia Nina Obuljen Koržinek, trade unions, journalists’ associations and professional organisations, journalists, media authorities and ambassadors, a number of criticisms have been heard. Some sources claimed that biased reporting and internal governance of the public service HRT haven’t really changed since 2016. Some problems and unresolved questions have been identified. Due to illnesses in both the HRT management and one of the relevant journalists’ associations, the delegation could not check these concerns on the spot. But there are some encouraging signs, too. By all means, HRT is not only under political pressure, but also under attack by different interest groups demanding to interfere in editorial and management decisions. Boris Bergant of EBU stressed that this shows “a fundamental misunderstanding of the role and function of public service media in the society.” The Minister of Culture promised to improve the legislation.Some interlocutors emphasized the destructive influence the destructive influence of hate speech on society has actually increased. Even though there are no extremist parties in the parliament, the public space seems to be poisoned by daily verbal attacks, including on journalists. “We were quite astonished to find that the Agency for Electronic Media considered all 30 of the hate speech complaints in 2017 as not being hate speech. In 2016 there was one single case that was recognised as such. Croatia desperately needs to deal with hate speech,” said Sophie Albers Ben Chamo of the ECPMF. The delegation urged the President of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović to use her position to speak out decisively against incitement and threats of all kinds.The delegation praised the work of the Croatian police, as they have recently arrested more persons who physically attacked journalists, compared to the past. However physical attacks, threats and especially online threats against journalists are still a big problem.Although the Minister of Culture Nina Obuljen Koržinek announced that her ministry is taking care of the law on media as well as the law on electronic media, so far, no strategy has been clearly defined.There should be a project to support the non-profit media whose state subsidies were completely cut off by the former government. Their situation hasn’t changed since then.The issue of media ownership is also one that needs to be examined: “In many cases media ownership is not transparent. One prominent person, not active in media business owns a series of media. A foreign group with unknown owners controls a few regional and local media,” said Otmar Lahodynsky of AEJ.Final delegation’s findings show journalists’ working conditions haven’t improved. “Trade unionists are discriminated and dismissed, collective agreements exist only in few media, and they aren’t negotiated collectively. Journalists are forced not to write about some topics, and there are no trade union organisations in numerous private media,” said Marijana Camovic of EFJ.The preparation and the swift implementation of this visit must be credited to the support of the local partner of the European Federation of Journalists, the Croatian Journalists Association (HND).The delegation has issued a detailed report in June 2018.

27 month delay in justice at Limerick courts

first_imgLimerick District CourtVICTIMS of crime and those accused of those crimes are waiting an average of 27 months in Limerick – the longest delay in the country – for a trial to start.That’s according to the Court Services report for 2019 just released.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And there are also huge delays for those obliged to appear in the District Court on summonses, with a 24-week lapse from the serving of the summons to a court hearing, one of the longest times in the country.It takes eight weeks to deal with domestic violence cases, which is the highest outside of Dublin although a spokesman for the court service emphasised that any person in need of emergency orders to bar a violent person from the home can get one immediately.“The court will sit at 3am if necessary and that creates a place of safety until the whole evidence can be heard in court,” he said.Personal injury claims that need to be dealt with before the High Court take 25 months to come to court. This is in comparison to four months in Dublin, where the High Court sits every day.A spokesman for the Court Services told the Limerick Post, “There has been an increase in Limerick waiting times for Circuit Criminal Cases to get a trial date due to an increase in the number of cases returned for trial. “Two judges will sit in the next term and during the traditional summer break in September to tackle the length of this waiting time. “We had planned for these extra court sittings to start in the spring, but had to put them off due to the Covid pandemic restrictions. “At District Court level the sheer numbers of summonses in 2019 has led to increased waiting times, and likewise we hope to put in place extra resources to tackle this in September as well.“People with concerns about domestic violence can get protection within hours despite the delay in hearing any substantive case, the spokesman said.

Will ‘Modest’ Economic Growth Deter the Fed?

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Home / Daily Dose / Will ‘Modest’ Economic Growth Deter the Fed? All eyes are on economic data as the country waits to see if the Federal Reserve will raise the federal funds target rate later in June. A rate hike is widely anticipated by economists and analysts; the latest economic data reported by the Fed, however, may put the rate hike on hold at least until late July.According to the Federal Reserve’s latest Beige Book released on Wednesday, most of the Fed’s 12 Districts reported only modest economic growth from April through mid-May, the period covered by the Beige Book. Only San Francisco reported moderate economic growth, while modest growth was reported in Philadelphia, Cleveland, Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis, and Minneapolis. Kansas City and Chicago reported slower economic growth, Dallas reported marginal economic growth, and New York reported generally flat economic activity since the previous Beige Book was issued six weeks earlier.The Fed reported moderately increased residential real estate activity across most Districts with strong home sales in Boston, Cleveland, Kansas City, and San Francisco. Though residential sales were somewhat lower in other districts, sales were generally reported as positive, according to the Fed.Lower housing inventories, which have been an issue for the housing industry for the greater part of four years now, were reported by contacts in the New York, Cleveland, Atlanta, St. Louis, and Minneapolis Districts, according to the Fed. The lower inventory in those districts led to bidding wars in the Richmond District and at the same time constrained home sales in Philadelphia, the Fed reported. Home prices generally increased across all districts, with Cleveland reporting a 3 percent rise in home prices.The next big economic report to watch will be the May Employment Situation, which will be released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday morning, June 3, at 8:30 a.m. EST.Click here to see the entire Beige Book.
