Pharmalot In an unusual move, two of the world’s biggest drug makers — Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Sanofi (SNY) — filed a lawsuit accusing the Hawaii attorney general of violating their free speech rights by insisting they include certain cautionary statements about the Plavix blood thinner in product labeling.At issue is language about the effectiveness of the medication in East Asian and Pacific Islanders, who constitute roughly half of Hawaii’s population. A lawsuit filed by the state in 2014 alleged the drug makers, which once jointly marketed the drug, failed to include data that indicated Plavix would not work for people in those groups.

$4 Million for Water Management Project EnvironmentMay 15, 2012 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Just over $4 million has been allocated in the 2012/13 Estimates of Expenditure, currently before the House of Representatives, to fund integrated management of Yallahs/Hope River Watershed Management Area Project, in the Ministry of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change. The undertaking, being implemented by the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) over the next four years, beginning this September, aims to reduce pressure on natural resources in the Yallahs and Hoper River watersheds of the Blue Mountains, by increasing sustainable land management techniques. These are expected to yield improved management of biological diversity and enhanced flow of ecosystem services that sustain the livelihood of local residents. It is envisaged that under the project: a geographic information system (GIS) watershed information management system, and bio-monitoring and water quality monitoring programme will be established; an institutional structure for watershed management will be implemented; financial and economic incentives to support sustained bio-diversity and watershed management will be established; community awareness of sustainable land management techniques will increase; as also lands under sustainable agro-forestry, by eight per cent. To date, technical documents have been prepared in relation to agro-forestry and biology; biodiversity; economics of natural resources; institutional framework for financial management; GIS/data mapping; rural development; communications; hydrology; and carbon sequestration. Anticipated targets for 2012/13 include: the establishment of a project management unit; and outlining of the management framework for the integrated aspects of the project, being jointly funded by the Government of Jamaica and the Global Environmental Facility (GEF).

Scientific American Mind:My family is what you might call politically diverse, with members ranging from real pinko-commie hippies to paranoid right-wing conspiracy theorists—and we’re all connected on Facebook. This election year, things among us had gotten pretty acrimonious until my brother, Colin, did something ingenious: he made a pledge to stop talking politics on Facebook.In the middle of a heated argument, it’s tough to picture everything working out well in the end with your opponent. Yet remaining hopeful may actually help that happen, says Susan Krauss Whitbourne, a personality researcher and professor of psychology at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.Read the whole story: Scientific American Mind More of our Members in the Media >
By KEVIN TEME A premiership title is worth waiting for Magani rugby league club that is currently participating in the country’s premier league, the South Pacific Brewery Ltd sponsored Port Moresby rugby league competition. Magani club is made up of mixture of players from various cultures and background all around the country with most of these players currently residing in Port Moresby. Magani have fall short to that dream of winning the PRL premiership title on a few occasions one being in 2007 against Brothers and it is certainly a dream that is being a long wait for head coach Chris Enara. Brushed aside the regionalism and despite the respective players’ background, the Magani are band of brothers who live, eat and walk rugby league and feel pride in donning the color of the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the NRL as their outfit every time they run onto the paddock for their respective matches. Certainly for coach Enara and like any other coach such as Panther’s Richard Wagambie, the Aroma lad not only acted as a coach but a mentor to many of these youths who have strolled or walked or even run into this club to show case their hidden talents. With so many of these players having made it into the Kumuls side, one thing that has been evading them for a long time now is a premiership title for the club. This premiership dream is soon to become a reality as the Chris Enara coached side lines up this Sunday against a full strength Richard Wagambie’s Paga Panthers outfit in the main A grade game. Both clubs have come a long way this season by keeping their grand final hopes alive, and it won’t be an easy task for Magani when they face the Panthers. “I think this year, we have achieved one thing at a time and that is making short term goals which worked out well for us. We’ve come this far believing in our structure and we’ll work hard to improve on it and polish up on our defense,” Enara said. “This year, we didn’t look too far ahead rather we just set ourselves short term goals and achieved it slowly. The goals motivated the boys to play for each other and here we are ending here in the semi final against Panthers,” Enara said. Enara said the goal was to win three out of the five games played in the opening round and not to their surprise they won five straight games. “When we realised we had enough points we set ourselves a goal to finish in the top four which we did. Coming this far is a bonus and now we are within striking distance and we’ll surely give it our full,” Enara said.

A fisherman from a city called Puerto Princesa in the Philippines was working 10 years ago when he spotted a huge pearl inside of a giant clam. He took it home to his little wooden shack and put it under his bed for good luck.And he’s kept it there for the past 10 years. But there was a FIRE at his place earlier this year, and when he had to move, he decided maybe he should see if it was worth anything. And . . . um . . . yeah, it was.The pearl is 77 pounds. It’s 26 inches long and 12 inches wide. Both of those measurements make it the biggest pearl in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD by a massive margin.And it’s worth approximately $100 MILLION.The current world record for the biggest pearl is the Pearl of Allah, which was also found off the coast of the Philippines. It’s “only” 14 pounds and it’s less than 10 inches long.The new pearl is being authenticated now.
