The company received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development, including $102,000 in job creation tax credits and a $22,950 WEDnetPA grant to train its workforce.PRA Health Sciences, a leading global contract research organization (CRO), strives to move drug discovery forward, helping to develop life-saving and life-improving drugs.

To date, PRA has invested nearly $4 million dollars in the Blue Bell expansion project.“I’m excited to celebrate this growth of new jobs and growth of Pennsylvania’s economy,” said Governor Wolf. “The life science industry is a major driver of economic growth for the commonwealth and we’re all witnesses to this today with PRA’s expansion project.”The project is expected to create at least 250 new full-time jobs by the end of 2016, and will retain 1,150 existing employees. The facility includes state-of-the-art shared tenant conference space, staff workplace benefits, and a fitness center. With 148,000 square feet the building can accommodate approximately 860 PRA employees.The company received a $750,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $750,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits, and a $112,500 WEDnetPA grant from the Department of Community and Economic Development.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolfcenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_imgMS Dhoni blasted 44 off 22 balls in the game against Delhi Capitals.Chennai Super Kings are virtually assured of a top-two finish.Chennai Super Kings will now take on Kings XI Punjab in their last league game. For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: MS Dhoni’s superman like-exhibition with the bat and behind the stumps during Chennai Super Kings’ 80-run win against the Delhi Capitals at the MA Chidambaram stadium on Wednesday showed his brilliance. Dhoni blasted 44 off 22, including four boundaries and three sixes and shared partnerships of 43 and 34 with Ravindra Jadeja and Ambati Rayudu in the death overs to boost Chennai Super Kings to a big total. In Delhi Capitals’ chase, Dhoni effected two stumpings and took a catch as Delhi Capitals stumbled to their heaviest loss in the IPL 2019 season. Dhoni was named the Man of the Match for his exploits and he revealed his success mantra in the post-match presentation.When it came to his wicketkeeping, Dhoni said, “I think it’s something that’s come from tennis ball cricket. But you still have to do the basics and graduate to that level. If you want to keep like that you can make mistakes; so I still think basics are most important.” On his batting, Dhoni remarked, “Watch the ball, hit the ball. You’ve spent time, you know the variations. By the 20th over you’re almost ready and you swing at everything. It’s easier for somebody who has played 10-15 deliveries than someone who has just come in.” highlights Speaking about Dhoni’s abilities, Ravindra Jadeja, who picked up 3/9 in his three overs emphatically said, “In one word, MS Dhoni is a genius.”This was the last league game at the MA Chidambaram stadium and with the first qualifier being held here, the Chennai Super Kings players decided to do a lap of honour around the stadium to thank their fans for their support. Dhoni said he was overwhelmed by the love he got from the people of Tamil Nadu“I thought they will retain me. I will have to go and talk to the owners, ask if I will get retained or not. But I am not going to tell the trade secret. I have always said it’s very special to get that kind of a nickname. It’s a big nickname that they have given me. It feels really special. I didn’t realize that it was part of the first CSK song. The way I got accepted and the whole of Tamil Nadu — don’t call my name, they call me ‘Thala’. It’s very nice and they have always supported not only me but the whole team,” Dhoni said.With Chennai Super Kings virtually assured of a top-two spot, they take on Kings XI Punjab in their last league game at Mohali while Delhi Capitals will take on Rajasthan Royals in their last league game.last_img read more
