Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. I like to think of myself as a savvy investor. And for me, part of building a diverse portfolio involves looking for the next big thing on the FTSE AIM index.Yourgene Health Plc (LSE:YGEN) is on my ‘ones to watch list’ list. It’s a genetic testing firm that produces non-invasive products for male fertility and prenatal screening for cystic fibrosis and other genetic disorders. In addition, YGEN is planning to expand into genetic testing for cancer detection and prevention. YGEN has also joined the Covid-19-related products market with its own testing solution.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…FTSE AIM opportunityYGEN has been listed on the FTSE AIM for six years and has been steadily increasing its footprint. It has established a commercial presence in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.YGEN does relies on commercial partnerships with bigger DNA testing firms out there but I do not see this as a drawback. Sometimes smaller companies will bring fresh ideas and proprietary knowledge to the table. Larger firms then utilise their own infrastructure and reach and both parties benefit.I always take notice of companies who undergo acquisitions to grow, especially into new territories such as the US. Yourgene acquired Elucigene in April 2019 and launched its first oncology product. I believe this is a statement of ambition and will help it to reach new heights.As I write this, shares in YGEN can be picked up for a very modest 17p per share. Just before the market crash that rocked the whole FTSE index, shares were trading very close to a similar level of 17p. The crash did cause a small dip in price and shares could be purchased at just 10p. Even at current prices, I consider this a bargain with very little risk involved.Recent performanceOn Monday, YGEN released a half-year trading update for the six months ending 30 September 2020. There were several positive takeaways from this report. Revenue increased 5% compared to the same period last year. The UK and Europe each saw a healthy increase of 40% and 80% respectively. This helped offset a reduction in revenue for the rest of the world. This was to be expected as many firms across the FTSE reported difficulties due to the market crash. YGEN also saw revenues for its Covid-19 testing solution begin to increase and the forecast for the second half of the year is positive.In addition to the financials, YGEN raised £15m of funds to complete a new acquisition in the form of Canadian firm Coastal Genomics, which I believe will further its reach in the North American market.My verdictI really like the look of Yourgene even though it is just a £128m market cap business. It is making good headway with its footprint and is attempting to gain a share of a multi-billion pound industry. It is regularly acquiring smaller firms and amalgamating them into its operation to enhance its offering. Also, YGEN is showing growth in respect of revenue and has joined the potentially lucrative Covid-19 product market.At its current price, I believe YGEN represents a bargain, albeit with a small amount of risk involved. I like picking up FTSE small-caps when they have potential such as this, as it helps diversify my portfolio. 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!

Mike, so far I have not appeared at City Council since the mid-80′ s when they discussed raising the millage rate. After that, I have been genuinely pleased up until very recently when the new regime was voted into office. I would certainly not like to be subjected to an eye roll and sigh from the chief executive. We will see tonight what our beloved City’s future holds. Mama Mia Some of the current council members, and especially the current mayor, Mayor Kilsheimer, sure take the theory that they are the representatives elected to represent the citizens, and that form of government, the representative form of government….. They take that TOO literally! To them, they interpret it to mean, the citizens should be mimes, or faces with no voices, or opinions, they will decide whatever, and who are we to suggest things to them! Even in our neighboring cities, they have frequent referendums for their citizens to go vote on major decisions and issues that their citizens want, or don’t want…..not here in this city! And yes, other cities have the same representative type form of government too, in their cities, as in Apopka. Here, it is HIS way, or no way. Like the red light camera issue, for example! I even tried to get it where citizens given parking tickets would have more time to pay the fines, than only 5 business days, and I told the mayor that even the state gives people 30 days to pay a red light camera, and was I successful in my simple little request?….NO, his way or no way! Everybody here in this city doesn’t have a six figure salary, but he just doesn’t GET IT! This was when they were finalizing the new parking ordinance…….

Please enter your name here March 12, 2018 at 4:51 pm Decision Apopka 2018Opinion/AnalysisBy Reggie Connell/Managing Editor of The Apopka VoiceIn 2010, Apopka City Commissioner Billie Dean defeated Barb Zakszewski in the Seat #1 election with 1,164 votes (62%) to her 725 (38%). In the Seat #2 race, incumbent Marilyn Ustler-McQueen beat challenger Sam Ruth with 1,149 (61%) votes to Ruth’s 735 (39%).Mayor John Land ran unopposed, and those three Apopka incumbents joined Commissioners Bill Arrowsmith, and Kathy Till back on the Apopka City Council.What’s the relevance of that brief factoid of Apopka politics? It was the last time an incumbent won an election in Apopka.In 2010, the Apopka City Council had a collective 131 years of experience sitting on the dais. Land (58 years), Arrowsmith (31), Dean (18), Ustler-McQueen (16), and Till (8) combined for what was quite possibly the most years in office of any municipality in the state. Now with the retirement of Dean, all five members of that Council will be a part of Apopka’s history, but not a part of its government.Since 2014, four incumbents have run for re-election and lost. In 2014, Ustler-McQueen ran unsuccessfully against Commissioner Diane Velazquez, and Land lost to Mayor Joe Kilsheimer. In 2016, Arrowsmith lost to Commissioner Kyle Becker, and Commissioner Sam Ruth (who won an open seat in 2014), lost to Commissioner Doug Bankson. And while four straight losses may seem like an anomaly more than a trend, in municipal elections around the country, incumbents have won at a rate of 88%.So how will the incumbents fare tomorrow?All signs point to a close mayoral election. Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson won The Apopka Voice Reader’s polls in December, January, and February. He also led most of the way in a close fundraising matchup with Kilsheimer. However, mail-in-ballots and early voting are trending to a similar turnout model (5,000-6,000 votes cast) that propelled Kilsheimer over Land in 2014. There is simply not enough details to establish either candidate as the frontrunner.In Seat #2, Velazquez and challenger Alice Nolan appear headed to a runoff. In a January and February poll conducted by The Apopka Voice, both candidates ran neck-and-neck and outdistanced first-time candidates Leroy Bell and Alicia Koutsoulieris. Velazquez and Nolan are also close in total contributions, which is often an indicator of success in local elections. Depending on the outcome of the mayor’s race, these two seem destined to decide this election in April. However, like the mayor’s race, there isn’t really enough evidence to call anyone a frontrunner.There is no incumbent running for Seat #1. Six-term Commissioner Billie Dean is retiring, and the eventual winner will be a first-term commissioner. Suzanne Kidd has won all three Apopka Voice Reader’s Polls, and led in fundraising, but has never eclipsed 50% in any of the polls, which suggests this seat will also likely be won in a runoff. Gene Knight and Alexander Smith seem to be challenging for the second spot in the runoff, with Knight placing second in the December and January poll, and Smith taking second in the February poll and leading Knight in fundraising. Theresa Mott has been fourth in all three polls and third place in fundraising for Seat #1.If the incumbents were to fall tomorrow, the City Commission would have gone from 131 years experience in Apopka elected office to only four years (Bankson 2 years, Becker two years, and three newcomers) in just eight years. It would also extend the incumbent losing streak to six.So much for making term limits an addition to the City Charter.But even if the incumbents are victorious, it still only gives the City Council 12 years of experience in office.Tomorrow the 10 candidates get their report cards around 7 PM. And while this election cycle is difficult to predict, it seems crystal clear that Apopka is still experiencing political growing pains, and its voters are still sorting things out.We will know a lot more by tomorrow evening Apopka.

Cuba, May Day 2016Don’t let the Barack Obama administration flip the script. On Oct. 14 media headlines told the U.S. public they could bring unlimited cigars and rum home from Cuba. That news, which many welcome, adds to the false impression that the U.S. blockade of Cuba has ended.No. It hasn’t. And that’s why anyone wanting U.S. relations with Cuba to be normalized and conducted on a basis of equality must speak up.The U.S. unilateral, extraterritorial economic, financial and commercial blockade remains in full force. Cuba’s necessary trade with the U.S. and with the world is not just cigars and rum.For example, Cuba’s ability to trade depends of the removal of U.S. penalties for companies doing business in Cuba. Yet, since Dec. 17, 2014, when the new U.S. policy toward Cuba was first announced, the U.S. has fined eight banking and corporate entities, including five from the U.S., a total of nearly $3 billion. This disrupts Cuba’s trade.Obama’s Oct. 14 presidential policy statement aims to make it impossible for future administrations to reverse the normalization of Cuba-U.S. relations. This includes setting up new embassies, relaxed travel restrictions and direct discussions. It also claims Washington intends no regime change in Cuba, will respect Cuban sovereignty and will take no covert actions.Essentially it says that the U.S. will deal with Cuba in the same way as it does other small countries around the world.But what’s Washington’s record? It has overthrown the elected government of Honduras, backed a fascist-friendly coup in Ukraine and supported every reactionary move by the Venezuelan oligarchy against the legitimate government of Venezuela.Even the new policy statement says U.S. Agency for International Development programs aimed at Cuba will continue providing “scholarships.” Cuban youth have mobilized to point out they already have completely free education and don’t need counterrevolutionary USAID.The policy statement further asserts the U.S. intends to continue the occupation of Cuban territory at Guantanamo, citing security concerns to excuse violating Cuban sovereignty.The U.S. government is also persecuting friends of Cuba in the U.S. too. The Treasury Department threatens to strip tax-exempt status from the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization. And Floridian Albert Fox faces a $100,000 fine for travel to Cuba and needs the defense the National Lawyers Guild is providing.We can expect U.S. imperialism to continue its attempts to undermine socialist planning in Cuba. Fortunately, socialist economic relations that give priority to human needs over profits are firmly established in Cuba. There is a strong Communist Party to lead what historic revolutionary leader Fidel Castro termed “the battle of ideas.”The United Nations General Assembly with 193 countries will on Oct. 26 once again vote against the U.S. and support Cuba’s resolution calling on the U.S. to end outright its illegal, immoral and damaging blockade.Workers World readers can vote against the blockade by linking to: CubavsBloqueo.cu to click on VOTAR/#YoVotoVsBloqueo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
