first_imgInterested in the Genedrive share price? Read this first! Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 22nd October, 2020 | More on: GDR The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Enter Your Email Address The Genedrive (LSE: GDR) share price has been on a rollercoaster ride this year. The stock was trading at around 9p a share in March but then leapt to more than 200p in early May. The excitement started to build around the company due to its existing technology, which could identify pathogens relatively quickly. This technology, investors speculated, could help revolutionise the testing process for Covid-19. The organisation believed it could cut delays processing lab samples.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…Unfortunately, the company’s progress has been slower than many investors may have projected. The practicalities of getting accurate products to market have hampered the business.Consequently, these delays hurt investor sentiment towards the Genedrive share price. The stock has fallen as a result, currently changing hands at just over 111p, down around 50% from that May high. Steady progress Despite the slow progress, Genedrive is pushing forward. Following the CE marking of the Genedrive 96 SARS-CoV-2 kit at the end of May, management has been working to gain approval from regulators around the world to sell the product in different markets.In the United States, Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) has been applied for and remains under consideration by the FDA. Meanwhile, the approval process in Africa and India is well underway. The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority also approved the product at the end of September. The firm has also signed an agreement with Beckman Coulter Life Sciences to combine the Genedrive 96 SARS Cov 2 testing kit with the Biomek i7 automated work station. And on top of all of the above, Genedrive is working on a new Point-of-Care (POC) system for Covid-19. This product could produce results in approximately 15 minutes. Unlike many other early-stage healthcare companies, the business already has revenue commitments. Its latest trading update noted the firm had £1m of purchase commitments for the Genedrive 96 SARS-CoV-2 kit. Unfortunately, the company also noted it needs regulatory approval before these orders can be filled. Genedrive share price investment potential Still, from an investment perspective, I think the Genedrive share price looks attractive. One of the most common reasons why early-stage healthcare companies fail is lack of funds. That’s not something investors here need to be worried about right now.At the end of June, Genedrive had £8.2m of cash on the balance sheet. I think that could be enough to sustain the business for at least two years. The company should have reached the revenue stage by that point. From there on, the sky could be the limit for Genedrive. As such, while the Genedrive share price has fallen in recent months, I think the firm’s fundamentals look much stronger today than they were at the beginning of the year. If the company’s testing products are approved around the world, the revenue opportunity could be substantial. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

Families Go to Town at Indiana State Fair…Animal Town

first_img Previous articleCeres Solutions Knowledge Day, A Different Kind of Field DayNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for August 15, 2018 Eric Pfeiffer By Eric Pfeiffer – Aug 14, 2018 Facebook Twitter Families Go to Town at Indiana State Fair…Animal TownAnimal Town is a new interactive animal experience at the Indiana State Fair this year. Presented by Indiana Farm Bureau, Animal Town has eight different species of barn yard animals for families to learn about, see up close, and even pet. Animals are all over the fairgrounds, so why was it important to add this exhibit? Stephanie DeCamp, Director of Education for the Indiana State Fair Commission, answers that question.“Visitors would come the second weekend and want to see llamas. Well, llamas are only shown the first weekend of the fair. So, this kind of came to fruition through that suggestion of wanting to see those animals. You can’t see a draft horse all 17 days (of the fair).”DeCamp added that they really wanted to bring a free, family friendly exhibit to the fair. They also wanted the experience to be educational.Stephanie DeCamp, Director of Education for Indiana State Fair Commission“We do a live, ‘Let’s Talk Livestock.’ So, an animal is brought to the demonstration pen and it’s about a 20-minute demonstration on how the animals are raised what they’re used for. And then the visitors have an opportunity to come and have a one-on-one interaction with them.”Those talks are done daily at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, and 7pm throughout the fair. DeCamp says Animal Town has been a big hit.“It’s been a huge draw; people everywhere. It’s never been a dead or empty exhibit. Even when the sun goes down and the exhibit is supposed to close at 9, there are still people coming in and looking at the animals.DeCamp told HAT that they are planning on this becoming an annual exhibit. The Indiana State Fair concludes on Sunday the 19th. Animal Town is located just east of the Hoosier Lottery Grandstand next to the Communications Building.

She currently serves as the Greeks/SGA/SDS editor for TCU 360. The renovated Daniel Meyer Athletic Complex is one of the many construction projects revamping TCU. Jessica Ranckhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jessica-ranck/ print** This story has been corrected to accurately represent the title of O. Homer Erekson, the John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business and professor of Managerial Economics and Strategy.**The construction of new buildings and facilities on TCU’s campus emphasizes Chancellor Victor Boschini’s belief in the importance of first impressions.The campus has undergone a revitalization in the last two years, spurred by a desire to create a welcoming and productive academic environment, and more projects are on the horizon.New HallsMarion and P.E. Clark Halls opened in August 2013.The buildings stand four stories high and are equipped with suite-style living, like the halls in the commons.Both buildings cost about $20 million and were a new addition to Worth Hills, Provost Nowell Donovan said.Another residential hall in Worth Hills opened its doors in August 2014 and was officially named Hays Hall.All three buildings that students refer to as “New Halls” primarily accommodate sophomore living and are equipped with study lounges and key card access.Multi-purpose buildingThe multi-purpose facility opened in Worth Hills in January.The new facility incorporates an open area for students to eat, study and hang out with their friends.The first floor hosts several restaurants on the first floor while the second floor of the building has larger rooms that can be used to host TCU events or offer students a quieter place to study.The building has yet to be given an official name, but students said they like the openness of the space.Junior marketing major Spencer Traver said he enjoys studying and visiting with friends in the building.“It’s got a nice open feel and I can always go and get coffee to drink while I’m there,” Traver said.The facility also offers outdoor seating for students to study or eat outside.Mary Couts Burnett LibraryReturning students came back to a newly completed entrance for the Mary Couts Burnett library in August 2014.Renovations are still under way for the inside of the library. This portion of the project is expected to be completed on Oct. 1.The renovation will provide more study spaces for students that will include quiet and conversational sections for both group and solo studying, Library Dean June Koelker said.Koelker said TCU study spaces are evolving to incorporate more visual displays of information, and the new library will accomplish that.The building will also include its own section for graduate study and will mirror the look of Rees-Jones Hall.Rees-Jones HallTCU introduced a new way of learning when Rees-Jones Hall opened in August 2014.The building stretches more than 62,000 square feet and cost $27.2 million.Rees-Jones Hall houses the TCU Idea Factory, the TCU Energy Institute and the Institute for Child Development.  However, Donovan said the building belongs to everyone.The second floor of the building provides study pods for students that can be reserved for group projects or solo studying.Students said they enjoy the innovative classrooms and study spaces and like the fact that they can write on the walls.“Rees-Jones is an easily accessible place to study after class because that’s right where all my classes are, and you can write on the walls,” said Christina DeMarois, junior strategic communication major.Colby HallColby Hall completed its major renovation this year.The all-female hall reopened for first-year students at the beginning of the school year.The building incorporates an open feel with plenty of natural lighting, said Craig Allen, director of Housing and Residence Life.Although all the rooms are new, residents can see the biggest difference in the dormitory’s basement.Before the renovation, Colby’s basement primarily consisted of washers and dryers. Now it has spaces for laundry, studying, baking and socializing.Residents are now referring to the basement as the “Colby Cove,” Allen said.He said Colby will be the last dorm to be renovated before construction begins for Greek housing.Parking garageTCU’s first parking garage opened earlier this year in place of Lot 5.The parking garage contains 992 parking spots and is designed with TCU brick.Donovan said the design of the parking structure is aesthetically pleasing to help accommodate nearby residents.The garage will also be able to provide more student and alumni parking.“We have 300 more spaces in the garage for alumni and visitors who have to make a very long walk,” said Harold Leeman, associate director for major projects and facilities planning. “This is an alumni, student and community relations garage.”Daniel-Meyer Athletic Complex The Daniel-Meyer Athletic Complex is currently undergoing its first major renovation since its construction in 1956.The construction crew is working hard to redo the complete exterior and interior of the facility.The court itself will be sunken, and the building will include offices for both the male and female basketball coaches, said Donovan.The basketball section of the complex was renamed the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Coliseum after the Schollmaiers donated $10 million to the project this summer.The stadium was originally supposed to be completed in fall 2015, but the completion date was delayed due to weather and unexpected construction issues.The $45 million renovation is now expected to be completed in time for the first basketball game on Nov. 8, Donovan said.Construction crews said they are working hard to finish construction.“We have been working Saturdays and Sundays for months now,” project manager Wesley Hokanson said. “We are starting no later than 7 a.m.”Rees-Jones/Library walkwayThe construction of the overpass connecting the Mary Couts Burnett Library and Rees-Jones Hall is also underway.The walkway is part of the “emancipation walk,” Donovan said.“The idea is that students will walk from the library, with the slogan ‘Knowledge is Power,’ to Rees-Jones, and that slogan is ‘Knowledge is Empowerment,’” Donovan said.The walkway is designed with archways that Donovan referred to as the “corridors of imagination.”Greek developmentThe next big development for TCU will be new Greek facilities.Each Greek house will be four stories high and will have a combination of single and double-sized rooms.The fourth floor will have suite-style living to accommodate those with leadership positions in the chapters.Each chapter will also have the opportunity to design their chapter room.“We are going to give them empty chapter rooms, and they get to design those,” said Michael Russel, assistant vice-chancellor for student affairs.“They will have a fair amount of latitude of what they will look like inside,” said Russel.Construction will start after the Greek parking structure is completed. It will begin with sorority houses and then fraternity houses will follow shortly after, Donovan said.Brachman/Greek parking garageConstruction began on the Worth Hills parking garage this past summer.The garage is the first step in the process of renovating the entire Greek community.The garage will provide parking for residents who live in Greek housing and Worth Hills. It will be multi-level so students can enter from the Greek as well as the creek below.Construction is in the early stages but will look similar to the parking structure located in Lot 5.Business school commonsSpencer and Marlene Hays donated $30 million in August 2014 to renovate the business school.The renovation will include an auditorium, two new buildings and a complete renovation of the existing Smith, Rogers and Tandy Halls, Donovan said.The business school is changing the way it approaches learning and engagement by adding more spaces for collision opportunities, said O. Homer Erekson, the John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business and professor of Managerial Economics and Strategy.Smith Hall will be renovated to promote entrepreneurship. The bottom level of the building will include workspaces for students to work, talk with employers or start up their own student companies, Erekson said.Rogers Hall will be torn down for complete renovation. The first floor will include dinning options to meet the needs of hungry students, Erekson said.All the buildings will be connected so students can move from one building to the next.The renovation will also include an outside courtyard for students to sit and study or hang out with friends.The business school is still looking for donors to cover the rest of the cost, but hopes to start construction in May 2016, Erekson said.

He enjoys writing about all sports and plans to go to law school after graduation. printThe No. 3 ranked Horned Frogs pushed their winning streak to 12 games and secured a sweep of Murray State in a run-rule shortened 13-2 win in seven innings on Sunday at Lupton Stadium.TCU’s offense used 18 hits, 5 of them by Austen Wade, to finish off a weekend that saw them score 37 runs on 35 hits, 22 walks and 8 hit by pitches. The Frogs (25-5) had a .500 on base percentage for the weekend against a Murray State (15-15) pitching staff that has struggled all season to the tune of a 6.77 ERA. Eight of nine batters got hits for the Frogs in just six innings on Sunday, with five players recording multi-hit games.When asked if hitting can be contagious, Wade said, “With this lineup, for sure. You see one guy get a hit and he comes back to the dugout saying ‘this is what it looks like,’ you feel really confident going up to the plate,” he said. “I think it is contagious.”Brian Howard picked up his fifth win of his senior campaign and lowered his ERA to 5.05 as he gave up just two runs in five innings of work. Howard tallied a career-best 11 strikeouts, recording at least two punch outs in each inning. Despite the high strikeout total, Schlossnagle still believes Howard can be better.“I think his best baseball is ahead of him,” Schlossnagle said. “He has pitched a lot of big games. When you start playing on the road in conference games, there is nobody I have more confidence in than Brian.”Howard walked Murray State leadoff hitter Kipp Moore to start the game. He then set the next two batters down on strikes, but Moore advanced to third on a stolen base and a throwing error by catcher Zach Humphreys. The Racers took the lead on a two out single from Tyler Lawrence.TCU quickly answered Murray State’s run with one of its own, as Wade led off with the first of his five hits on a double to right field. Evan Skoug stayed hot with an RBI single two batters later.The Frogs put up their first of three crooked innings with a four spot in the second. TCU picked up five straight hits to open the frame, highlighted by a two run double from Mason Hesse and an RBI single by Cam Warner. After a strikeout and an intentional walk of Luken Baker, Josh Watson hit a sacrifice fly to deep center field to make it 5-1.The Horned Frogs lone scoreless inning of the afternoon came in the third before they tacked on a run in the fourth, making it a 6-1 game. Skoug singled to drive in Wade who had singled and advanced to third on an error.Murray State scored a run in the top of the fifth on a double off of Howard, but TCU blew the game open in the bottom half. Another four run inning extended the lead to 10-2.Nolan Brown started the bottom of the fifth with a single before stealing his 16th bag in 17 tries. After a single, walk and strikeout, Wade lined a run scoring single to center. With the bases loaded and a run in, Warner extended his team lead in RBI’s with his 33rd of the season on a base hit to center field.
