Two biotech stocks making headlines recently are Oncimmune Holdings (LSE:ONC) and Genedrive (LSE:GDR). Both are helping in the fight against Covid-19 while also cornering specialist health markets.Biotech stocks making wavesOncimmune Holdings is a life sciences firm specialising in the early diagnosis of cancers. It hit the headlines today as the prestigious Cedars-Sinai healthcare group has chosen it to provide antibody profiling for Covid-19 samples. Cedars-Sinai is a high-profile hospital attended by the rich and famous, including many politicians and A-list celebrities. The Oncimmune Holdings share price rocketed over 15% on the news, settling back at around an 8% rise. 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…The UK government recently awarded Oncimmune with funding to develop an all-inclusive diagnostic tool for the coronavirus. This should also help in the ongoing research required to make an effective vaccine. Cedars-Sinai is expected to be the first academic partner to benefit from this UK-funded programme. This is because it’s contributing antigens to the cause. Our bodies naturally produce antibodies to fight antigens to eliminate them. The tool will simulate the process and help make accurate predictions of patient responses to the virus. Winning contractsOncimmune has a £129m market capitalization. Its earnings per share are negative, but it has a very low debt ratio of 6%. Last month Oncimmune also signed a collaboration with biotech company Genetech, a division of Swiss giant Roche. This contract involves profiling samples from Genetech’s rheumatology trials for signs of rheumatological diseases, including the autoimmune disease lupus. There’s no doubt biotech stocks are making waves as the pandemic rages on and scientists scramble for new and unique ways to deal with it. Meanwhile, biotech company Genedrive is another one involved in diagnostics. On 30 September, it announced it had received approval for its Covid-19 testing kit to be used in South Africa. Genedrive has a £72m market cap and specialises in creating diagnostic tools for infectious diseases, human genotyping, animal health, pathogen identification, and other applications. After a relatively uneventful start to the year, Genedrive’s shares shot up by 2,344% between March and May. It was very much riding the wave of speculation surrounding tech stocks involved in Covid-19 research. Since then, Genedrive’s share price has fallen back 40%.Is now a good time to buy?I think Oncimmunce looks the better investment of these two biotech stocks, because its links to Cedars-Sinai and Roche give it added credibility, and its global presence throughout the developed world is also a boon. The early diagnosis of cancer is vital in achieving a positive outcome, which makes it a lucrative area to be involved in, aside from its pandemic play. However, as a micro-cap listed on AIM, it still remains a risky buy. I’d add it to a contrarian portfolio of well-diversified stocks.Genedrive still looks too small to me and therefore a far riskier investment. It has a 141% debt ratio which makes it even more dicey, and it’s operating in regions that automatically carry additional risk. There’s no doubt it’s working in a highly speculative and exciting area of biotech. But molecular genome diagnostics require large amounts of time and money for research and development, with no guarantees of revolutionary breakthroughs.

Dan Carter breaks Irish hearts as the All Blacks take series win

first_imgTuesday Jun 19, 2012 Dan Carter breaks Irish hearts as the All Blacks take series win Ireland put together a much stronger performance in the second test of their tour of New Zealand, coming close to drawing with the All Blacks if it werent for a late snap drop goal from flyhalf Dan Carter, who sealed the series as they won the game 22-19. After the 42-10 drubbing a week prior, nobody expected Ireland to pose much of a threat to the All Blacks, who were playing their first game in Christchurch since the earthquakes.Ireland surprised everybody though as a determined, passionate showing brought them within inches of claiming their first ever win against New Zealand.Carter, who is looking back to his best of late, broke the hearts of Irish fans in the dying seconds as the All Blacks piled on the pressure and he snuck a quick drop goal for the win.“We’re absolutely gutted alright,” said Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll. “To concede early in the second half and then to fight back to get level and then to concede it the way we did at the end is very, very disappointing.“But it was such a massive improvement over last week and I’m so proud of the lads. I just think we let ourselves down a little bit last week and let the jersey down. We talked about that this week and talked about concentrating on our own game and playing with the ball a little more.“I think we managed to do that and we had them in trouble a few times but the scoreline still says an All Blacks victory which is difficult to take.”New Zealand have now won the series 2-0, but Ireland have another crack at them next week in the final Test.

It fulfills two main functions: on the one hand, to create shade on the outside with the purpose of preventing sunlight from impacting on glasses which give continuity indoor-outdoor space in summer and, on the other, to allow the sun when it goes down in winter to fall on the lower half of these glasses heating the space protected by them. It also represents a spatial transition from the coverage of the room that we have considered to be the living space of the house.

They joined one of 25 legs of the relay and chose their own mode of transport. There were cyclists, runners, horse-riders, dog-walkers, motorcyclists, buggy-pushers, skateboarders, swimmers and more. Some even danced, or dashed with shopping trolleys.

Netanyahu corruption trial sheds light on meddling in Israeli media

first_img As the testimony stage was about to begin on 5 April, the prosecutor accused Netanyahu of making “forbidden use of the great governmental power in his hands in order to, inter alia, receive forbidden favours from the owners of leading media outlets in Israel in order to advance his personal interests, principally his desire to again be elected.”Ilan Yeshua, the former CEO of the Walla news website, testified at length during the week of 5 April that Netanyahu repeatedly asked the website’s owners, who were Netanyahu supporters, to provide him and his family with more favourable coverage.Yeshua’s testimony confirmed hundreds of messages, emails and recordings indicating that Netanyahu used his influence to sway editorial decisions at several media outlets. The police talk of almost daily meddling carried out with little attempt at discretion. Yeshua is being cross-examined by the defence this week.“The claims being made are extremely serious and unworthy of a democratic country,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “This high-profile trial is exposing the lack of editorial independence at certain Israeli media outlets. Their ownership by a small number of pro-government businessmen is very concerning and is giving rise to unacceptable abuses.”Two sets of allegations involving Netanyahu are particularly disturbing for the media. One, known as Case 4000, concerns the Walla news website’s owner, Shaul Elovitch, who also owned the Israeli telecom company Bezeq. Netanyahu is alleged to have promoted regulations favouring Bezeq from 2015 to 2017, when he was also communications minister, in return for guarantees of favourable coverage for himself and his wife by Walla.In the other case, known as Case 2000, Netanyahu is alleged to have struck a deal with Arnon Mozes, the owner of Israel’s biggest-circulation daily, Yedioth Aharonot, whereby he would do his best to reduce the influence of its biggest rival, the free daily Israel Hayom, in return for more lenient coverage by Yedioth Aharonot. Netanyahu subsequently tried to get parliament to pass a law designed to limit the distribution of free newspapers.The first prime minister in Israel’s history to be tried on corruption charges while still in office, Netanyahu insists that he is the victim of a “witch hunt.”Israel is ranked 86th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

RWB writes to mayor after journalist dragged from council meeting

Indeed, it is the city hall’s duty to ensure that the public’s right to information is respected at all times.”Reporters Without Borders also urges the mayor to publicly express her commitment to freedom of information on behalf of herself and the municipal council.

However, when he tried to use his mobile phone to photograph two security guards, four municipal police officers dragged him from the room.Describing the scene the next day, the newspaper La Dépêche du Midi wrote: “Four policemen grabbed him by the waist, dragged him along the ground and expelled him by force.” Valérie Rabault, a Socialist Party parliamentarian for a Tarn-et-Garonne district, objected to his eviction.An extremely shaken Lecomte told Reporters Without Borders he went to hospital and was ordered to rest for eight days. “I’ve never been subjected to this level of violence, not even while covering such problematic events as the Notre-Dame des Landes and Sivens Dam protests,” he said.Networkvisio has filed a complaint.When two journalists who were present, Johan Gesrel of Totem and Pierre Bascugnana of La Dépêche du Midi, began filming Lecomte’s expulsion, they were themselves accosted by the city hall administrator and ordering to stop filming. The administrator later apologized to Bascugnana for manhandling him, saying it was a mistake.Reporters Without Borders condemns these violations of freedom of information in the strongest possible terms and has written to Montauban mayor Brigitte Barèges calling on her to publicly condemn the violence with which these three journalists were treated.
