Bayer’s Xarelto anti-clotting drug targets potential $15bn market

first_img KCS-content Germany’s Bayer yesterday said it was targeting a market worth as much as $15bn (£9.6bn) with its anti-blood-clotting pill Xarelto, setting the stage for decisive study results to be released later this year.Chief executive Werner Wenning, who will hand over to Marijn Dekkers next month, said the new generation of experimental anticoagulants such as Xarelto – designed to replace problematic existing treatment warfarin – could have combined annual sales of $12-$15bn.Industry analysts believe the market eyed by Bayer and its development partner Johnson & Johnson could eventually be worth more than $10bn a year and possibly as much as $20bn.Wenning also reconfirmed an estimate for Xarelto, based on the active ingredient rivaroxaban, to have peak annual sales of more than €2bn (£1.7m). A key study on Xarelto will be presented at the American Heart Association meeting in November.

Episcopalians invited to support anti-pipeline protesters, join advocacy

first_imgEpiscopalians invited to support anti-pipeline protesters, join advocacy By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Aug 26, 2016 Associate Rector Columbus, GA September 6, 2016 at 11:02 pm I’d love to donate a small sum (I’m on Social Security), but I don’t see a link to donate through any of the usual channels. Please advise. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Hopkinsville, KY Dakota Access Pipeline, Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Donald Heacock says: August 26, 2016 at 8:27 pm If the pipeline runs outside the Reservation the tribe is out of line. The authorities should allow the.pipeline to.continue. I.suggest all including the P. B.shold stop using oil & its products. Get a horse. Rector Bath, NC August 26, 2016 at 8:11 pm I am so proud of my Church for standing with my people at Standing Rock, Owanah Anderson, Choctaw elder. John Sullivan says: Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Cynthia Katsarelis says: Rich Basta says: August 26, 2016 at 10:42 pm This pie line is proposed to cross Treaty Land and that treaty also sites the Missouri River. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Henry McQueen says: Featured Events Mairik says: August 27, 2016 at 10:37 am I’m always the outlier, so here goes: we’re having a similar debate here in our area. There is opposition to a pipeline by people who don’t want their farmland encroached on. Yet, they use natural resources, own homes that need heat and electricity, drive vehicles that consume fuel, and live in communities that depend on energy for security. When it was pointed out that the gas company also had a pipeline underground for 80+ years that was well-maintained and never became an issue it dumbfounded the objectors. They couldn’t even locate it when asked to do so. Unless the objectors are going to go the full mile (so as not to look hypocritical) and return themselves to the days of open windows, horse and buggies, no plastic, home-woven clothing, root cellars for food storage, clotheslines, campfires, cotton-only Episcopal flags, and oil lamps then there has to be a realization that they rely on fuel energy which needs to be shipped. If there is a safety concern, shout it loudly and demand better construction. It is foolishness to dictate that pipelines and power grids zig-zag the landscape to avoid being on “my land”. The cost of energy will not be attainable with such unrealistic expectations. If people expect lost-cost energy then there must be well-built, safe infrastructure to bring it. Comments (25) August 28, 2016 at 7:35 pm I am not an Episcopalian but this caught my eye and I commend you for you stand and that your Diocese in ND is supporting the occupation. I am a Unitarian Universalist and I looked to see if our denomination has taken a stand yet, but apparently not. You are ahead of us on your speaking out on this issue. I hope to see something from the UUA soon. Course Director Jerusalem, Israel August 27, 2016 at 1:12 pm Power to the people of the Standing Rock, and the Episcopal churches there, in their fight to protect the land and water. What threatens the earth threatens all. Indigenous people see the earth as a relative, not something to be exploited. Looking at this from the perspective of economics is not valid in our view. -Bradley Hauff, Oglala Sioux. Henry McQueen says: September 7, 2016 at 11:30 pm The UN Declaration on the Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples calls for “free, prior, and informed consent” for any project that impacts their environment. This project clearly violates their human rights. Further, sacred sites are to be protected. A survey found burial and cultural sites on the “private land,” and the tribes took it to court – the corporation, however, sent bulldozers to destroy some of the sites over a holiday weekend. This project violates treaties, and the use of attack dogs on protesters was unconscionable. With climate change, we are living in a world where we need to switch to sustainable energy sources and protect our water. This pipeline is all wrong in every way. August 29, 2016 at 7:53 pm I tend to agree with Doug Desper. I believe as long as good faith and reasonable efforts are made to ensure the pipeline is safe, I don’t see a problem with it. Doesn’t the Army Corp of Engineers have to do an environmental impact statement before signing off on it? If they didn’t, or cut corners on it, then I think the protesters concerns , and the ECUSA’s support of same would be buttressed. Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t see a victim or oppressor here. I appreciate the chance to offer my thoughts in a respectful manner.

You wear cotton clothes. You eat sugar.” Slave owners told abolitionists they had no right to complain because abolitionists participated in the slave economy. The fossil fuel economy is the modern-day equivalent of the slave economy. We are ALL part of the fossil fuel economy just like the abolitionist were part of the slave economy. The abolitionists weren’t just looking to change their clothes or their diet to avoid participating in the slave economy… they were looking to CHANGE THE SYSTEM and they did. Many of us are looking to change the system and we have the right and the responsibility to demand something different, a better system that is not based on destruction. We do not have to be environmentally “pure” to move in that direction. September 1, 2016 at 11:42 am A Prayer for the Bakken Pipeline:Dear Jesus, you came so that we may have life and have it in abundance. Thank you for the blessings of abundant oil, which comes from deep within the womb of the Earth, our island home. Bless the oil company workers as they harvest the oil safely for our use. We were anointed with oil at our baptism, and so we know it is a symbol of your love and warmth. May those who benefit from its production have a living wage to lessen the burden of income inequality. May the schools funded from the taxes on this resource be centers of growth and renewal for our children. Give strength and alertness of mind to those who stand watch over the pipeline to ensure that the rest of your creation is not spoiled beyond our capability to restore it. This we ask in your name. Amen. Diana Nichols says: September 6, 2016 at 3:23 pm I would LOVE to make a donation, but it appears using the link you provide that there is no way to designate the donation to Standing Rock or NODAPL – it defaults to the diocese with no way to make a notation. Anybody know if I’m doing something wrong? I tried both ways with PayPal and without and in both instances found NO WAY to make an intentional designation. Rector Tampa, FL Bradley Hauff says: Connie Mack says: Dakota Access Pipeline protesters makes a statement about the threat they say the pipeline poses. Photo: No Dakota Access in Treaty Territory – Camp of the Sacred Stones[Episcopal News Service] Following on his Aug. 25 statement supporting the protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry is inviting Episcopalians to help support the Diocese of North Dakota as it ministers to the protesters.That support, Curry and other Episcopal Church staffers said, could take the form of immediate help for the costs being incurred on the ground in the three protest camps on and near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, and advocacy actions that can be taken to support the protesters’ concerns.Organizers have indicated that they are in urgent need of portable toilets and roll-off trash containers. Their expenses include food that is prepared on site, health care and gasoline to reach the remote site, which has been made harder to reach by a law-enforcement roadblock set up on the main highway. Local parishes and congregations are providing material and spiritual resources to support to the protesters, and are in turn supported by the diocese.“We have seen the resiliency of the protesters in Standing Rock, and as Bishop Curry stated, we are called to stand with them for all our sakes,” said Heidi Kim, the Episcopal Church’s missioner for racial reconciliation. “As Christians, I believe that one way we can demonstrate our solidarity is to help the clergy and congregations of the Episcopal Diocese of North Dakota provide pastoral care and support. They are actively involved with supporting protesters’ immediate physical and spiritual needs, and they could use our help.”Financial donations are being accepted by the diocese, according to the Rev. John Floberg, canon missioner for the Episcopal Church community on the Standing Rock reservation, who serves three congregations in the North Dakota part of the reservation: St. Luke’s in Fort Yates, St. James’ in Cannon Ball and Church of the Cross in Selfridge. “Money is best,” he said, “because we can purchase everything here or pay bills here that are incurred.”Such donations can be made to the diocese via the “donate” button on its web page, referencing “Standing Rock” or “NODAPL.” They can also be mailed to the diocese at 3600 25th St. South, Fargo, ND 58104The Rev. John Floberg stands near an Episcopal Church flag that was added to the flags of other organizations and tribes participating in the protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Photo: John Floberg Facebook pageFloberg said material donations are also acceptable but only those officially requested by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Currently, those requests include jackets and hoodies, blankets, tents and infant formula. Nighttime temperatures are dropping into the 50s and there could be frost in early September, he saidFloberg can transport material donations to the camps and ensure their proper distribution and use. People wishing to make these sorts of donations must email him first at [email protected] to arrange shipment.The protesters oppose the 1,154-mile pipeline that would run from the Bakken oil fields in northwest North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois, carrying as much as 570,000 barrels of oil a day. The pipeline would cross Lake Oahe, part of the Missouri River, just a half-mile from the reservation. Opponents say the pipeline will threaten the reservation’s drinking water and disturb sacred lands. The action has attracted the attention of celebrities such as Susan Sarandon, Leonardo DiCaprio and Divergent star Shailene Woodley, as well as from organizations such as the United Nations Working Group on Indigenous Populations.The protests, which succeeded this month in halting work on that part of the pipeline, are being compared to some of the most momentous events in American Indian history, and the Diocese of North Dakota has rallied behind the cause. It issued a statement of support Aug. 19 and diocesan members have been in the three protest camps helping build a unified presence and helping with material needs such as food.Advocacy in support of the protesters’ goal is another way Episcopalians can help, according to Jayce Hafner, the Episcopal Church’s domestic policy analyst who works in the church’s Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations and the Rev. Charles Allen Wynder Jr., a deacon, who is the church’s missioner for social justice and advocacy engagementThey said Episcopalians can:* Contact their Congressional representatives and senators to ask them to request the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers do a complete environmental assessment that looks at the full implications of the pipeline that includes impact to the reservation and honors the treaty obligations (the people of Standing Rock are challenging the adequacy of process and content of the Corps’ environmental assessment issued in July.* Ask the Army Corps of Engineers directly to do a complete environmental assessment that looks at the full implications of the pipeline that includes impact to the reservation and honors the treaty obligations; and* Contact the U.S. Department of Justice and ask officials to monitor the nature and use of police and possible military equipment during the standoff.Floberg said the protesters are living in three distinct camps on the north and south side of the mouth of the Cannonball River, a Missouri River tributary. The Camp of the Sacred Stones on the south side of the river on the Standing Rock reservation began in the spring when word of the pipeline’s construction began to emerge. Earlier this month “many more people starting coming” and a new camp sprung up on the north side of the river on some Corps-owned land. Protesters from the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota joined the protest and formed a third camp. All three camps are near the town of Cannon Ball, North Dakota, home to St. James Episcopal Church.While there are three distinct encampments “there’s no competition between these camps; they’re all together,” Floberg said.More than 4,000 protesters have been in the camps at times and there has been a continuing presence more than 600, according to Floberg.Osh Johnson, Diné Nation, cooks bread for the lunch meal at the Camp of the Sacred Stones, one of three camps set up along the Cannon Ball River in North Dakota to house protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Photo: No Dakota Access in Treaty Territory – Camp of the Sacred StonesThe protesters have been speaking out on social media about the lack of attention paid to the protest by national news media. While the New York Times recently reported on the protest, few other outlets have followed suit.Floberg noted the six-week takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon earlier this year by a group of armed anti-government militants garnered daily reporting by most major media.“Those guys had weapons but they were far fewer in number – and they were consistently on the news,” he said. “This is a peaceful protection protest going on, and the national news just doesn’t seem to notice. That’s just been terribly disappointing.”Floberg also countered what he said has been “a significant amount of misinformation” given out by government officials. “It’s been tearing apart the fabric of a common life of Native and non-Native people,” he said.Native people have been referred to as “thugs” and been portrayed as “being engaged in unlawful activity,” he said. The Morton County sheriff said the roadblock on Highway 1806 was erected because there had been reports of gunfire, reports Floberg said have not been substantiated.The sheriff, Floberg said, also claimed he had been told that there were reports of “pipe bombs” in the camps. Floberg said when Lakota people gather they have people known as pipe carriers who pray for the people with the sacred pipe that is “loaded” with tobacco. That ritual of “loading their pipes” has been twisted into saying the protesters are making pipe bombs, he said.Floberg said, “It seems like there’s little regard for the truth because they’re trying to put pressure on this camp and squeeze any public support and sentiment to squelch that.”“So I as an Episcopal priest am unable to have unfettered access to where I serve as a priest,” Floberg said, referring to St. James in Cannon Ball. “I have to drive an extra 40 miles from that roadblock” to get to church or to the “protection site” where he has been ministering.He said he has protested to police officers at the roadblock that his First Amendment rights to free speech, assembly, and to practice his religion are being denied.– The Rev.

Sarah Yergin says: Submit an Event Listing September 6, 2016 at 4:19 pm Rich, a point of interest that you raise: my reading on the topic indicates that the pipeline project has been broken into many many little projects that individually don’t require an environmental impact statement. The issue on this is that the many many little projects (sorry I forget if it was hundreds or thousands and don’t want to mislead) are actually one large pipeline. So through a questionable legal procedure the need for an environmental impact statement has been avoided; at least for now unless the courts rule differently. Youth Minister Lorton, VA September 7, 2016 at 10:34 pm Well said Bradley. I’m glad our Episcopal Churches have been there to support you!!

Even a small leak can be catastrophic. Bismarck rejected this same pipeline upstream and so why should Standing Rock bear the possibility of their water supply being compromised? Sadly the possibility of the pipeline failing at some point is a strong possibility. You can find the data almost anywhere but here’s a sample: https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2015/05/22/oil-production-soars-pipeline-leaks-federal-data-show/gsjw49TbMexvnmsWf1dvxJ/story.htmlYou raise some good questions about our consumption of and dependence on fossil fuels. Issues that Americans of all stripes need to seriously consider. Though your comments about “going the full mile” seem somewhat cynical (forgive me if I’m wrong) many people are doing just that along with a lot of other experiments in self reliance.

This project in Bucharest manages to develop a small collective housing scheme under a minimal budget, proposing a new way of living as well as a new urbanistic approach for a controversial neighborhood. Difficult location and impossible regulations This project is located close to the central area of Bucharest in a quite problematic context. It is a genuine slum almost unchanged over the years, almost abandoned by the Bucharest’s administration and planners, but located right next to the Plumbuita Park, which has a beautiful lake and an important Orthodox monastery. Since the beginning of the design process, we faced all these conflicting data: a typical dense slum plot, with an (urban?) life that sometimes bursts too intense for what a public space / private space / neighborhood should be, versus the huge potential of an exceptional natural environment. Due to these circumstances, the decisions we took during the design attempted to solve this paradoxical equation.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirThe project story begins when the owner (a young lady) decides to invest on a plot of 282 sqm. Initially, the City Hall planner’s proposal was an urban solution illustrating an indifferent replica of the Bucharest specific wagon-house. But for such a land, with the opening of 6.6 m and length of 42 m, that would mean compromising any relationship with a possible courtyard as well as a completely non-functional building, impossible to develop and, later on, to sale.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirFirst of all, the proposal we made was a radical typological change: from the urban wagon-house, to a scheme composed by 2 separate volumes. Therefore, without changing the density of the area, that is, keeping unchanged the local urban density parameters, this new typological choice came from the redistribution of the built areas rather on vertical than on the horizontal direction. With this operation we obtained a smaller footprint, resulting in more compact volumes each with a larger courtyard. Even though more conventional and higher, these two volumes are certainly more functional than the initial single volume wagon-house of approx. 4 x 30 m might have been. Moreover, the two volumes establish a proper relationship with their courtyards area. By using the full width of the land, the proportions of these courtyards allowed the ground organization of all necessary parking places, without the need for underground parking and thereby a basement level with all its economical implications for such a small investment.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirFinally, this typological change is meant to be a potential pilot intervention of the area, in order to encourage a more efficient future urban morphology. This could result in a positive (but not utopical) scenario of attracting similar investments, and perhaps it will help the urban slums of Plumbuita in getting out of the socio-urban collapse, which is presently in. In volumetric and functional terms, the two blocks are almost identical. The only notable difference is that the ground floor of the first block, that stands closer to the street, leaves a gangway access toward the courtyard and the second block that’s located in the depth of the plot. Except the ground floor of the first one, each level of the two blocks contains 1 bedroom apartment with a built area of approx. 68 sqm. That is, a total of 7 apartments.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirExpression and materials The general expression of the facades was chosen for two reasons. The first is a practical one: the need to protect the privacy of the apartments, given the small distance (10 m) between two apartments located across or between the building and its neighbors. The second reason resulted from processing the vertical timber fence pattern, which is omnipresent in the context of the slums. Also, the vertical louvers (local stained pine slats attached to steel frames) were chosen for their better maintenance, compared to the horizontal ones.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirAs already said, the materials and technologies involved have pursued the effectiveness of this small investment. There were used traditional construction systems (masonry and reinforced concrete frames) simple finishes and technical solutions. The main goal of this project was for us the appropriate answer to the context demands, but also to our young client’s needs. However, this involved an attempt to provide a generic example of how to build intelligently within a contradictory but simulative context, as it is the traditional Bucharest slums.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirProject gallerySee allShow lessUniversity of Applied Arts Extension Proposal / Wolfgang TschapellerArticles2012 TED Prize Winner: The City 2.0’s Wish has been Revealed!ArticlesProject locationAddress:Strada Tămâioarei, Bucharest, RomaniaLocation to be used only as a reference.

On the picket line

first_imgAlina Health nurses on strike.Minnesota nurses on strikeNurses in the Minnesota Nurses Association started a second unfair labor practice strike on Sept. 5 against Allina Health at five hospitals in the Twin Cities area. The 4,800 nurses, whose contract expired June 1, conducted a seven-day Unfair Labor Practice strike that ended June 25. At the last (22-hour) negotiating session on Sept. 3, Allina demanded a cap on its contribution to health care premiums and shifting cost increases onto nurses, and ignored the union’s request for training to deal with workplace violence and for improvement in the nurse-to-patient ratio. (mnnurses.org)A group of Twin Cities legislators held a press conference Sept. 19 requesting Allina resume negotiations and work to end the strike. Member organizations in National Nurses United, to which the MNA belongs, organized local pickets and press conferences Sept. 13 in support of the strike. (nationalnursesunited.org) The last big, open-ended nurses’ strikes in the Twin Cities lasted 23 days in 2001 and 38 days in 1984. Stay tuned.Silicon Valley food service workers win unionCafeteria workers at technology giant Intel’s Santa Clara, Calif., headquarters voted to unionize with UNITE HERE Local 19 on Sept. 15.This success follows a monthslong struggle against contractor Eurest for basic dignity and workplace rights. Cafeteria cashier Monica Moreno told the press, “It’s so important that we won the union vote today because now we end the fear of not having enough money to live.” (bna.com, Sept. 16)According to documents filed in May with the state Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Labor Relations Board, Eurest has illegally prevented the workers from accessing restrooms during shifts and “restrained, coerced and interfered” with their right to pursue union representation. Despite Intel pulling in billion-dollar profits yearly, the cafeteria workers who help make this possible are paid so little that many cannot afford to live close to work. According to Working Partnerships USA, service workers at tech companies make on average one-sixth the wages of the white-collar workers and are six times more likely to be Black or Latinx. (kron4.com, Sept. 15)Ruling helps temp workers organizeThe National Labor Relations Board issued a ruling July 11 that reversed an existing precedent on organizing temporary workers. It held that permanent employees and temporary staffing employees could be combined in the same bargaining unit without either the employer or the staffing agency’s consent. All that was needed was a “community of interest.” In an August 2015 ruling for “joint employer,” the board imposed new legal obligations on employers who hire through temporary agencies and potentially also on giant corporate franchisors in such industries as fast food, warehousing, manufacturing and food processing plants, recycling facilities, hotels and janitorial services.“The ruling represents a blow to corporations that have moved forcefully, sometimes overwhelmingly, toward using temporary workers in an effort to block worker benefits and collective bargaining … [and] to avoid labor contracts by using temporary services,” observed In These Times on July 12.Since the recession of 2008, temp agencies account for more than 17 percent of net employment gains in low-wage service sectors where “permatemps” are used to staff entire departments or facilities. In many auto assembly and parts plants, for example, temp agency workers are paid half of what regular hires make and account for more than half the workforce. (labornotes.org, Aug. 23)Petitions show urgency of low-wage struggleThe struggle for livable wages and a union isn’t just about putting more money in workers’ pockets. It’s about saving lives and protecting those with special needs. Sign two petitions that call attention to this. One from Fight for $15 calls on McDonald’s to pay workers enough so they can afford health care: “Myrna De los Santos struggled with health issues for years — but she simply could not afford the health care she needed on McDonald’s pay. Last week, she passed away. She was 49.” The petition at bit.ly/2d9nijg reads: ”McDonald’s, we call on you to pay every worker enough to afford the healthcare they need to live. As Myrna’s tragic case shows, McDonald’s low pay can be a matter of life and death.”The petition at bit.ly/2cWtQp0 by former Walmart worker Arleja Stephens calls on CEO Doug McMillon to respect pregnant workers. Stephens was fired when her high-risk pregnancy required her to miss work. “My experience is not an isolated incident. … Women across the country reported that Walmart does not allow time off for doctor appointments, that they are not given light work as an accommodation, and that they are scared they will lose their jobs if they speak up or ask for help. … Young, Black, working mothers, like me … should not be forced to choose between a healthy pregnancy and the ability to provide for our families.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The cause of the argument was not mentioned. Eventually, the argument led to a scuffle.“There was a call for service. They were women, at least two of them. It was a disturbance that spilled out into the street,” Paige said. “When the deputies went to go and contact them, a fight ensued. The person was booked on battery of a police officer and they were taken to the hospital for medical clearance before they were booked.”Paige said when deputies responded and arrived at the scene, the 25-year-old black woman continued shouting and yelling. The cause of the argument has not been determined.Earlier reports said the suspects used a metal object and smashed something in the outlet, but Paige said this has not been verified.Police are now interviewing some of the witnesses to shed light on the incident.
