I’ve been so used to seeing FTSE 100 stocks falling in this unprecedented year, but these two growth and income heroes have taken me by surprise. Both have recovered strongly from the stock market crash, to resume their longer-term upwards trajectory.They’re not the best known stocks on the FTSE 100, but few will have rewarded investors as well over the past five years. If I had £5k to invest today, or any other sum for that matter, I’d consider splitting it between these two companies. Free of tax inside a Stocks and Shares ISA.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 Croda International (LSE: CRDA) share price is up a thumping 110% over five years. It fell during the stock market like almost every other FTSE 100 stock, but has recovered strongly and now trades notably higher than in January.Two top FTSE 100 stocksThe speciality chemicals company hasn’t survived the Covid-19 market crash completely unscathed though. Last month, it reported a 12.8% drop in first-half pre-tax profit to £144.9m, as customer demand fell during the lockdown.Trading’s now stabilised but the future is unclear and, like every other company, Croda is waiting to see how the recovery pans out. It’s still maintained its dividend though.Croda has been a long-term growth star, with a total return of 563% over 10 years, according to AJ Bell. It has trashed most FTSE 100 stocks and this largely explains why the dividend yield looks relatively low at 1.5%, although nicely covered 2.1 times. Progression is all though, and management has shown plenty of that. It has increased the payout at an average annual rate of 15.3% for the last decade. Next year may see a smaller rise of 2.6%, analysts predict.My one worry is that the Croda share price is expensive as it trades at 32 times earnings. Sales are forecast to rise 12% next year though. You pay a price for quality these days. Others may prefer to buy cheap shares, right now.Delivering both growth and incomeMy next FTSE 100 stock pick is life-saving technology specialist Halma (LSE: HLMA), another unsung hero. The Halma share price has performed even better than Croda’s, rising an incredible 200% over five years. It’s also bounced back from the March crash, although not with quite the same vim.Last month, Halma posted record annual profits and revenues for the 17th year in a row, boosted by an impressive 10 acquisitions. However, it did warn profits could fall in 2021, depending on the speed of the recovery.The group looks well-placed to survive the recession, with strong cash generation, a robust financial position, and substantial liquidity. Again, the yield looks low at 0.74%, but that’s mostly down to rapid share price growth. Management has increased its dividend at an average rate of 7% over the past decade, and analysts predict another 8.2% hike next year.Again, the problem here is the valuation. Halma trades at almost 40 times earnings.

He has a case of intestinal malabsorption that is life-threatening. He is weak and emaciated. He has had untreated diarrhea for the past 15 months. He needs food rich in animal protein but is not getting any access to it. He is extremely malnourished and won’t survive if he stays in prison.”García Paneque has been hospitalized twice because of his condition. He was taken from Santa Clara prison in the centre of the country, where he began to serve his sentence, to the Vladimir Lenin hospital in the eastern city of Holguín. The following November, he was admitted to the infirmary of Havana’s Combinado del Este prison, where he is still held.”The diagnosis has been confirmed but my husband is still not getting the food and care he needs,” said Llanes Labrada, who previously contacted Reporters Without Borders about her husband in mid-January. “The authorities know his condition is incompatible with detention but they neither say nor do anything. She said she was also worried about the psychological impact on their four children, who are “traumatized by the fact that their father is being treated so badly.” March 18, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Concern that imprisoned journalist, José Luis García Paneque, could die soon Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet Follow the news on Cuba News CubaAmericas CubaAmericas News October 15, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders issues an urgent appeal for the release of José Luis García Paneque, the editor of the independent news agency Libertad.

MATTHEW KUTZ/Herald photoIn 2004, a UW volleyball squad that wasn’t supposed to do much in the NCAA tournament ended up knocking off second-ranked Hawaii en route to the Elite Eight.Seeing as most of that team has returned in 2005, expectations for the Badgers are high.”We’ve been waiting since the end of the NCAA tournament last year, training hard, getting ready for this time,” UW head coach Pete Waite said. “We’re thrilled that we’re home because our fans get to watch us one last weekend. We’re ready to go.”Wisconsin (23-6) begins its 2005 tournament in familiar fashion, repeating last year’s first round with an opening match against Loyola (Ill.) tonight at the Field House. The winner of the match will proceed to the second round Saturday against the victor of the Cal-Valparaiso matchup.The Badgers, who enter the tourney with a No. 11 seed, were able to dismiss Loyola with ease last season, prevailing in three games 30-27, 30-26, 30-25.Loyola has made some changes in the past year and shown some struggles this season. The Ramblers (13-17) are the only competitors in the 64-team draw with a losing record.But since Loyola won seven of its last eight regular-season matches and earned a spot in the tournament by winning the Horizon League Tournament, Waite knows this first match could be a trap game.”It’s a hot team. It’s a team that must be playing their best at this time of year, and that’s what every coach wants,” Waite said. “They’re scrappy, a smaller team than ours. We’re going to have to adjust to their style.”The Badgers were rewarded not just for their success during conference play — they earned sole possession of second place in the Big Ten with a 15-5 conference mark — but also for their lofty attendance figures by gaining home-court advantage for the first two rounds.Waite said the team will be able to obtain the full benefit of opening weekend due to the excitement of the Field House faithful.”It’s a huge difference. The crowd just gets you going when you’re down, and when you’re up, they push you even faster and farther to finish the game and the match,” he explained. “The team just gets a little more charged up when they’re on their own floor. They can stay in a similar routine to the whole season.”Granted that UW holds a considerable advantage in blocking going into tonight’s match (3.5 blocks per game against Loyola’s 1.95), Shelia Shaw admitted her all-Big Ten honor is rendered meaningless once the postseason begins.”Once you start in the NCAA tournament, every team has a clean slate,” Shaw said. “It doesn’t matter what you’ve accomplished in the past because you have to come out prepared to battle in every match.”Loyola coach Marcie Bomhack agreed with Waite in announcing that her team is not focusing on its overall record, but more so on its recent win streak.”All that matters is that we won our conference tournament,” Bomhack said. “We’ve been playing great volleyball at the end of the season, so we feel fortunate to be here right now and playing our best volleyball at the end of the season, which is how it should go.”Looking ahead to the second round: Should the Badgers take care of business against Loyola, UW would likely face a worthy opponent in unseeded but No.16-ranked California (18-10) in the second round Saturday night.But, first, the Golden Bears take on the Valparaiso Crusaders (27-7) tonight, preceding the Badgers’ opening match.”I’m pretty pleased to be here in Madison,” Cal head coach Rich Feller said. “This is a great volleyball town. I’m pretty excited about coming to the hotbed of Midwest volleyball.”Junior setter Samantha Carter of the Golden Bears knows the Crusaders — like Loyola — is a smaller school that would love nothing more than to knock off a giant power like Cal in a major upset.”Our coaches prepared us [by reminding] us that we constantly have targets on our backs, being a ranked team coming into the NCAA,” Carter said. “Playing a team like Valparaiso isn’t scary, but you know they want to beat the big teams in the Pac-10. We just need to go out there and play one game at a time and take care of tomorrow’s match first.”The Crusaders, led by head coach Carin Avery, participated in the InnTowner Invitational earlier this year, so they have gained a slight amount of experience with the UW atmosphere.”We’re very excited to be in Madison again,” Avery said. “After playing here in last year’s NCAA postseason and in the [InnTowner] Tournament this past September, we feel like we have a bit of home-court advantage over California, which is great.”
