Pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline has defensive, cash-generating credentials that I admire. But it’s not the only share I’d buy in the wider healthcare sector.Today’s half-year results report from CVS (LSE: CVSG) contains decent growth figures. The company provides integrated veterinary services in the UK, and the directors describe the sector as having “considerable resilience.” But there have been problems. Just over a year ago, the company’s profits were on the floor.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…After a strong recovery in the second half of the trading year to June 2019, today’s numbers mark a return to solid growth. Revenue rose by just over 15% compared to the equivalent period in the prior year, and adjusted earnings per share shot up by 30%. Within the revenue figure, like-for-like sales moved up by more than 8%, suggesting robust organic progress.Expanding steadilyOn top of that, CVS has been expanding via acquisitions. Five practice surgeries joined the company in the period as a result of three bolt-on takeovers. To put that expansion in perspective, the company has over 500 practices, more than 1,800 vets, and around 2,300 nurses.Of course, the immediate future is uncertain because of the coronavirus pandemic. Since the lockdown in the UK, veterinary practices can only remain open for urgent and emergency care. The firm is handling non-urgent and non-emergency cases via “teleconsultation.” The consequence of that is “a significant reduction” in both small animal billable visits and revenue. CVS has temporarily closed half its small animal practices, which represents around one-third of its capacity in that area of operations. Meanwhile, teleconsultations with clients for non-urgent or non-emergency cases are charged at “normal consultation rates.”  However, all the company’s referral hospitals, laboratories, and crematoria are staying open to provide essential patient care and for clinical waste collection. The company reckons around 40% of its small animal client base is in the Healthy Pet Club, which provides “some degree” of revenue visibility. Meanwhile, the online business is “fully operational” and is seeing “record levels” of food and medicine sales. Trading through the crisisI reckon CVS looks well-positioned to trade through the crisis even if revenues end up reducing. As such, the company seems to be luckier than firms in some sectors that have been closed down altogether.Looking ahead, the directors acknowledge that the full effects of the pandemic remain unknown. However, they are “confident” that the firm is doing everything it can to protect its employees, maintain business operations, and preserve cash and income streams.My guess is that CVS will prove to be a strong survivor of the crisis. And I’m inclined to view weakness in the share price now as an opportunity to buy the shares for the longer-term growth story. At 755p, the share price is around 37% lower than it was on 20 February.

Branson Nelsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/branson-nelson/ printStudents commuting to campus this school year have expressed frustration over a lack of parking spots in commuter lots near the academic buildings on the east side of campus.“I struggle on a daily basis to find parking before class,” said Nick Foster, a junior pre-med student. “Sometimes I have to park in places I’m not permitted to because I have to get to class on time.”Carson Pate, a junior business student, said he sometimes leaves his house nearly an hour before class to ensure he finds parking and makes it to class on time.“I walk over a mile from my house to class every day because parking is so difficult to find,” said Andrew Tisdale, a junior history major. “I have driven to class once this semester so far.”While many students share these sentiments, TCU Police Department Coordinator of Parking and Transportation DeAnn Jones explains that there is sufficient commuter parking on campus.Students just may have to go a little further away than they would like.“Lots three and four on the northwest side of campus are underutilized and provide shuttles to the east side of campus,” Jones said.The only commuter lot on campus that has closed recently was the 174-space lot behind the Harrison (Brite) building at the corner of Princeton and Greene Avenues.A former commuter parking lot behind the Harrison building, now closed for construction. (Photo by Branson Nelson)A new 208-space parking lot opened further east on the corner of West Lowden Street and Merida Avenue to make up for that loss. Another lot on Merida Avenue is on the way, too.“The construction of an additional commuter lot is underway and should be open soon,” Jones said. “It will provide 166 spaces.”It is not uncommon to see cars parked illegally and parking tickets pinned to windshields when walking around campus, but the 692 parking citations issued over the first two weeks of the semester is in line with previous years.Students can use this map to help them navigate their way around TCU’s commuter lots.

Hladik in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Home / Daily Dose / United States District Court Dismisses CFPB Enforcement Claims Over Discovery Abuses CFPB 2017-09-18 Douglas Sullivan In a stunning decision under Federal Rules of Civil Procedure governing discovery, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia dismissed enforcement claims filed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) against several entities accused of committing fraudulent debt collection activities. In Consumer Financial Protection Bureau v Universal Debt Solutions, LLC, U.S.D.C. N.D. Ga., 1:15-CV-859-RWS (2017), various defendants filed motions for sanctions under applicable federal rules based upon the conduct of CFPB during discovery. In the opinion, the Court ultimately dismissed six defendants from the action.In order to prepare their defense, various defendants sought discovery from CFPB, including testimony at oral depositions.  Upon receiving notice of the deposition, the CFPB claimed that information was already provided in discovery and that the requests were protected by the law enforcement and deliberative process privilege.  Despite Court orders permitting inquiry into certain areas, the CFPB refused to offer meaningful information outside of what was already provided, drafted a “memory aid” for witnesses to recite, and interposed repeated objections to questions based claims of information being privileged.  Even with Court orders, conference calls, and explanations regarding what is and is not privileged, the CFPB still refused to provide adequate responses.In a powerfully stated conclusion, the Court explained that it:finds that the CFPB willfully violated the Court’s repeated instructions to identify for Defendants the factual bases for its claims and that, in each deposition, it willfully failed to present a knowledgeable 30(b)(6) witness.  In light of the CFPB’s pattern of conduct in this case, the Court is not optimistic that reopening the depositions would be fruitful.  That is especially true given the CFPB’s continued use of privilege objections in response to questions that the Court expressly identified as permissible.  Thus, Defendants’ motions for Rule 37 sanctions . . . are all GRANTED.The decision is a guide as to how parties in enforcement actions may use the discovery process to learn the facts underlying the lawsuit, as well as a good lesson in what can happen when the discovery process is abused.

first_imgProject Recover(KISKA, Alaska) — Some 75 years after an explosion from a Japanese mine ripped through the USS Abner Read, a team of scientists says they’ve discovered the missing stern hundreds of feet beneath the waves off the Alaskan Island of Kiska.“This is a significant discovery that will shed light on this little-known episode in our history,” retired Navy Rear Adm. Tim Gallaudet, acting undersecretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA administrator, said in a statement. “It’s important to honor these U.S. Navy sailors who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.”It was about 1:50 a.m. on Aug. 18, 1943, when the Japanese blast tore apart the American destroyer.The ship’s 75-foot stern, along with 71 sailors, disappeared into waters off the remote island of Kiska. Amazingly, the rest of the Abner Read survived.The crew had kept its hull watertight until two nearby U.S. Navy ships could tow the destroyer back to port. Within months, the Abner Read was deployed back to the Pacific during a critical period of World War II.It was used until November 1944, when a Japanese dive bomber destroyed the ship in a kamikaze attack during the battle of Leyte Gulf in the Philippines, considered one of the largest naval confrontations of the war.The discovery was made by the research team at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the University of Delaware, which was funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Office of Exploration and Research. They partnered with four U.S. Navy sailors from the Naval Special Warfare Group.The effort also was supported by Project Recover, a public-private partnership working to find the final underwater resting places of Americans missing in action since WWII.The team made the discovery July 17 during a mission to document the battle off Kiska. Sonar mounted to the side of a research ship identified the target before a remotely operated vehicle captured live video that confirmed that the Abner Read’s stern indeed was below, now covered in sea life.“There was no doubt,” said expedition leader Eric Terrill, an oceanographer at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and co-founder of Project Recover. “We could clearly see the broken stern, the gun and rudder control, all consistent with the historical documents.”According to the researchers, the Kiska mission was the first to thoroughly explore the underwater battlefield where as many as 7,200 Japanese forces occupied the Aleutian islands from June 1942 to mid-August 1943.According to Naval History and Heritage Command, there are often war graves near sites like that of the Abner Read that are considered the final resting place for sailors who lost their lives at sea.“We take our responsibility to protect those wrecks seriously,” said the command’s director Sam Cox. “They’re the last resting place of American sailors.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgThe detection and monitoring of meltwater within firn presents a significant monitoring challenge. We explore the potential of small wireless sensors (ETracer+, ET+) to measure temperature, pressure, electrical conductivity and thus the presence or absence of meltwater within firn, through tests in the dry snow zone at the East Greenland Ice Core Project site. The tested sensor platforms are small, robust and low cost, and communicate data via a VHF radio link to surface receivers. The sensors were deployed in low-temperature firn at the centre and shear margins of an ice stream for 4 weeks, and a ‘bucket experiment’ was used to test the detection of water within otherwise dry firn. The tests showed the ET+ could log subsurface temperatures and transmit the recorded data through up to 150 m dry firn. Two VHF receivers were tested: an autonomous phase-sensitive radio-echo sounder (ApRES) and a WinRadio. The ApRES can combine high-resolution imaging of the firn layers (by radio-echo sounding) with in situ measurements from the sensors, to build up a high spatial and temporal resolution picture of the subsurface. These results indicate that wireless sensors have great potential for long-term monitoring of firn processes.last_img read more

first_imgTwo possible wind farm projects could have far-reaching affects for communities in both Cape and Ocean Counties. (Image courtesy of City of Ocean City) The Cape May County Chamber of Commerce, with support from offshore wind developer Orsted, will host an Ocean Wind Jobs Forum to share information on jobs and supply chain opportunities related to Orsted’s Ocean Wind offshore wind project on Tuesday, Feb. 25 at the Flanders Hotel in Ocean City.  Ocean Wind, New Jersey’s first offshore wind farm, is a proposed 1,100-megawatt offshore wind farm that will be located 15 miles off the coast of Atlantic City.  The project is expected to create 3,000-plus jobs through the development and construction cycle and 69 full-time jobs that remain in place to operate and maintain the wind farm post-construction. Additionally, Tier One Suppliers, who provide parts and services to Orsted, may expand employment opportunities as a result of the project. During the forum, attendees will hear from keynote speaker, Joseph L. Fiordaliso, president of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, as well as representatives from Orsted, their Tier One suppliers and a panel of local stakeholders who will discuss the synergies of offshore wind development for the region. Following lunch, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in “match-making” meetings to network with Orsted and Tier One Suppliers.   The schedule of speakers follows: 9:30 a.m. – Keynote speaker: Joseph L. Fiordaliso, president, NJBPU  10 a.m. – Panel discussion: Impacts of Wind Development for Cape May County11 a.m. – Panel discussion: How to Get Involved with the Ocean Wind Projectlast_img read more

first_imgThe 2 Sisters-owned Avana Bakeries site in Newport, Wales is to close with the loss of 646 jobs.The decision to close the Rogerstone bakery was announced yesterday and comes after the jobs were placed at risk following the loss of a multi-million-pound Marks & Spencer cake contract.In a statement, the company said it was trying to minimise the number of redundancies by seeking volunteers and looking to redeploy staff elsewhere.In a statement, Avana Bakeries said: “It is with much regret that we can confirm that, following a 45-day consultation period, we are closing our Avana Bakeries site in Newport“During the consultation, we have fully explored all the options available to us since losing what was the principal customer contract for the site. Sadly, we have been unable to find a way to keep the site viable.“Our priority now is to minimise the number of compulsory redundancies through seeking volunteers and redeployment elsewhere. We will also be working with the Welsh Government, Job Centre Plus and Staffline to seek opportunities for our colleagues outside the business.Consultation“We will now work with all our colleagues and our customers to implement a phased closure, which we anticipate will end by summer.”In February, 2 Sisters Food Group said it had entered into a 45-day consultation exercise with the staff.John James, of the Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union, told WalesOnline: “We are disappointed with the closure announcement because not a lot has changed since last week. The company is still working hard to secure business, but unfortunately the consultation period has ended and it wanted to give employees an answer.”last_img read more
