Polk County Sheriff’s Office Announces Another COVID-19 Death Mon, 20 Sep 2021 22:48:51 +0000

POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – The Polk County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday that one of its employees has died after contracting COVID-19.

The sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook that admissions specialist Renea Rogers, 55, died on September 6, 2021, after contracting the disease.

Originally from Baltimore, Rogers was hired by the PCSO’s Detention Department in 2006 after moving to Florida, working in classification, and engaging her entire career.

“Renea was passionate about coffee and lighthouses,” wrote the sheriff’s office. “She loved her dogs, Raven and Pebbles; listen to the group of his son-in-law Bittersweet; cruise; go to theme parks; fishing; to go to the beach; ceramic painting; and watch horror movies and disaster thrillers. She loved everything weather and had a large collection of plants.

“She loved having dinner with her family and her coworkers readily accommodated her schedule so that she could do just that. She was going back to school, so that she could become a supervisor. “

Rogers is survived by his parents, daughter and son-in-law and granddaughter. The sheriff’s office said Rogers had another daughter who died before her.

A memorial service is scheduled for Rogers at Oak Ridge Funeral Home at 10 a.m. Friday.

Cathie Wood goes shopping: 3 falling stocks she keeps buying Mon, 20 Sep 2021 10:21:00 +0000

What do the most successful investors do when their favorite stocks pile up? If you are Cathie Wood, Founder and CEO of ARK Invest, you keep buying more.

Shares of the manufacturer of life science equipment Berkeley Lights (NASDAQ: BLI) took a hit last week, and two ARK Invest ETFs quickly bought more. Wood also bought two genomics stocks which fell this year, Customize (NASDAQ: PSNL) and Invitation (NYSE: NVTA). Read on to see why she’s confident enough about the prospects for these companies to go against the grain.

Berkeley Lights

Berkeley Lights shares are down 74% from their peak last December, but the dramatic losses haven’t scared Wood away from this pioneer in digital cell biology. Last week, Wood added shares of Berkeley Lights to the ETF ARK Genomics several times. After a scathing report from a short seller started pushing Berkeley Lights shares lower on Wednesday, she bought shares of the struggling stocks for the flagship. ARK Innovation ETF, too much.

Berkeley Lights makes expensive lab equipment that can sort single cells on a semiconductor wafer and monitor their reactions to experimental drugs in real time. The bears in this action argue that recurring income from sales of consumer goods suggests that customers are not using company equipment once it is installed.

Luckily for Berkeley Lights investors, recent earnings results don’t align with the main thrust of the Bear Thesis. Recurring revenues have lagged behind direct equipment sales in the past, but are catching up quickly. In the first half of 2021, recurring revenue increased 54% year-on-year to $ 8.3 million. During the same period, direct sales of the platform grew only 33% year-on-year to reach $ 22.5 million.

Diagnostic stocks have performed well for Wood’s ETFs in the past, and she seems confident about this relative newcomer to the space. ARK Invest bought more shares of ETF cancer genomics specialist ARK Genomics every day last week.

Shares of Personalis have fallen by more than half since the share peaked in January. Investors have worried about the company’s reliance on the Million Veteran (MVP) program for the majority of its revenue. The ambitious goal of this government-backed research program is to learn how genes, lifestyle, and military exposures affect health and disease.

Personalis’ NeXT platform is designed to track over 20,000 genes to understand why some immune systems attack tumors and others allow them to grow. The company has already read and delivered 140,000 complete human genome data sets to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

In addition to the stable income, Personalis uses the information gleaned from the MVP program to inform its liquid biopsy department. The strategy seems to be working. The company believes oncology client revenues will exceed $ 25 million in the three-month period ending September 30, a new quarterly record.

Personalis isn’t the only genetic testing stock, according to Wood, could be a winner down the road. ETF ARK Innovation bought Invitae shares every day last week.

The Invitae share price also peaked in January, but fell 45% from its all-time high. Despite the dramatic drop, it is still trading at over 15.6 times trailing sales.

Invitae’s stock isn’t cheap by standard valuation metrics, but it’s one of the strongest competitors in the genetic testing market that’s only just starting to grow. Lack of access to genetic tumor profiling still prevents most patients from accessing new, highly targeted cancer treatments.

Invitae can point to study after study that proves that national testing guidelines are not keeping pace with new drug approvals. As a result, the biopharmaceutical industry has made its way to Invitae’s doorstep.

In the second quarter, Invitae signed 43 partnership agreements with drugmakers who know more testing will lead to increased sales of their targeted treatments. The tests could be free for patients, but Invitae could end up generating considerable revenue.

These Nimble Expedition cruise ships are designed for adventure and luxury Sat, 18 Sep 2021 15:00:00 +0000

Forget the floating cities that freak out between overcrowded and disappointing harbors. As the cruise industry thaws from its one-year hiatus imposed by Covid, it is radically refocusing by launching a series of new nimble ships that combine trips to faraway destinations with plenty of high-end amenities.

“These ships are the best of both worlds,” said Expedition Trips founder and president Ashton Palmer, whose agency focuses on this niche. “We are in an unprecedented boom period for small ship cruising – each line is trying to outperform the others, whether on gear or routes. He adds that even charter veterans should consider booking one of these adventurous trips: the bigger ships are of course more stable and better equipped with essentials like helicopters to reach even the most remote places and the wildest.

More from Robb Report

Take Ponant cabin 123 Commander Charcot, which will launch next month with a polar itinerary that takes guests via the ship’s remote island of the same name to see the emperor penguins, a journey that was largely inaccessible to anyone except research vessels until now. “No one in the history of small ship cruising has been able to do what they do,” says Mary Curry of Adventure Life, another cruise specialist, who claims the ship’s PC2 rating to break the ice is just a cut below most science ships. There are even onboard lab areas where passengers can participate as citizen scientists, as well as, for downtime, an indoor pool, heated blue lagoon baths, and two restaurants. Curry also recommends Aurora’s Sylvie Earle, with an X-shaped bow design that allows for smooth navigation even in churn-prone Drake Passage and virtual anchor technology that helps protect the seabed. The namesake naturalist will be on board for his maiden voyage next spring, around Baja California and the Sea of ​​Cortez.

Think of Seabourn’s brand new ship, the Business, which will be launched next April, as a cruise ship that thinks it’s a superyacht, with an onboard garage full of state-of-the-art toys: alongside Zodiacs and e-bikes, you will also find two custom built submarines.

New to National Geographic Resolution retains the line’s focus on education – it’s uncompromisingly nerdy – but elevates the onboard luxury experience beyond the rest of its fleet with two restaurants and an infinite-style hot tub.

In the Galapagos, Silversea has just launched its Origin of money, with butler service in all suites and a crew-to-guest ratio of nearly 1: 1 for up to 100 passengers. Richard Turen of Churchill & Turen, a cruise company, notes the ship’s spectacular 1,700 square foot owner’s suite. “The view from the balcony, which is 646 square feet, is amazing as you walk through the Galapagos,” he says. “People who charter a yacht would be very comfortable with that.” Yacht veterans might also consider the new 16-passenger catamaran Cormorant II, with its large cabins equipped with a balcony or the 20-passenger mega-yacht To evolve, from Ecoventura.

Both of these ships, of course, are ideal for private charter – most cruise lines also offer full charters, with a personalized seven-day trip with Seabourn, for example, starting at $ 2.5 million – but Turen recommends considering a partial charter, where an intimate group can customize excursions, dinners, and other activities on board, much like a ship within a ship, even on the smallest vessels.

The best destinations for novice cruise passengers? Think of Antarctica as a Broadway show and the Arctic as a museum of modern art, according to Palmer. “Antarctica is a breathtaking experience, but you have to work harder to appreciate the Arctic, which is contemplative and subtle,” he says. The Antarctic boating season corresponds to the northern hemisphere winter, but Arctic travel takes place in the summer, providing a welcome respite from the increasingly sweltering temperatures at home. “A luxury traveler doesn’t want to compromise on anything – an experience beyond what the average person does, yes, but without giving up creature comforts like a [large] cabin, ”he said. “They want it all, and now they can have it.”

Freshers’ week to kick Covid students in England | The universities Sat, 18 Sep 2021 06:00:00 +0000

Unvaccinated college students have been asked to receive a Covid vaccine during freshman week to protect themselves and their peers from the virus.

The top NHS doctor has called on freshmen to get vaccinated at pop-up clinics and walk-in centers set up by universities before their classes start.

The call comes as thousands of students arrive on college campuses across the UK in the coming weeks.

Professor Stephen Powis, National Medical Director of NHS England, said: ‘Starting college is a really exciting time and receiving your Covid vaccine means you will be armed with maximum protection against the virus. It’s fantastic to see the enthusiasm of the young, with over 3.4 million people aged 18-24 already having their first jab.

“With many universities ready to run pop-ups and walk-ins throughout the first few weeks of the term, it’s never been easier to protect yourself, so I urge anyone who hasn’t yet been vaccinated to accept the offer as soon as possible. “

Alistair Jarvis, Managing Director of Universities UK, said: “We welcome this reminder to the students of Professor Powis, which echoes the messages from universities to their students that they must do everything possible to get vaccinated before the start of the year. start of the academic year.

“Universities will provide pop-up vaccination clinics, vaccination buses or easy access to local walk-in centers, general practitioners and pharmacies at the start of the quarter to make the full injection as easy and convenient as possible. . “

Many universities, including Liverpool Hope University and Queen Mary University in London, are setting up pop-up clinics during freshman week with the aim of getting as many young adults vaccinated as possible.

It comes after Scottish universities were previously asked to postpone freshman week due to the risk of the coronavirus spreading during ‘mass activities’.

In June, a Scottish government advisory group called for activities to be delayed for a few weeks, warning that a proportion of students arriving on campus would have received only one dose of the vaccine.

Meanwhile, Hartpury University and Hartpury College in Gloucester, a college of nurses specializing in agriculture and veterinary medicine, have banned unvaccinated students from living there to ensure maximum protection against the virus.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid said: “Going to college is one of the most important times in the lives of millions of people every year – and getting your injection could be one of the most important things. important things you can do to make sure you get the most out of it.

“I urge anyone who has not yet received the vaccine to do so as soon as possible, not only to protect yourself, but also for your new university community.”

Last fall, a number of universities were forced to move most of their courses online due to coronavirus outbreaks among students.

This term, students are encouraged to book their second jab at a pharmacy, doctor’s office or vaccination center in their new university town.

Anyone aged 18 and over can make an appointment through the National Reservation Service, and the second dose can be given in a different location than the first as long as eight weeks have passed.

Hillary Gyebi-Ababio, Vice President of Higher Education at the National Union of Students, said: “It’s great to see the Covid vaccine being readily available on campus for students – at NUS we asked the government to do all it can to ensure that young people have easy access to vaccines. I urge anyone who can get vaccinated so that we can have a safer time on campus. “
