Italy levies eye-opening antitrust fines against Roche, Novartis over Lucentis

In CategoryDrugs and Drug Companies, Government
ByRuss Bianchi

For a while now, doctors have been prescribing Roche’s ($RHHBY) cancer drug Avastin off-label to treat some of the same vision problems as its eye drug, Lucentis. While that’s a much cheaper option for patients, for Roche and marketing partner Novartis ($NVS), it’s no good for sales. Now, Italy’s antitrust authority has fined the Swiss companies and accused them of colluding to push doctors toward the pricier option–claims the pair denies.

A NOTE FROM HOME by Uncle Russ

In CategoryMoringa Benefits, Zija is Superior
ByRuss Bianchi

So to Christians this is Good Friday with Easter Sunday pending, in Judaism Passover. Both are lessons on renew, restoration, and growth.

I recently saw the attached Redford film, which I personally identify with as a sailor by hobby. The film teaches no matter how well prepared we each might be we remain children of The Creator and ultimately each of us will have to answer for both our profane or sacred.

I understand Redford’s film title, but fundamentally disagree, per my own sinew or soul, for All Is Saved, irrespective of the details or circumstances, if you can accept in every disaster, real or implied, there remains opportunity.

A very clever fellow, that is a life long friend of mine once quipped “Resurrection is far more difficult than birth”. Though, on the face of this comment, sounding true, it fails to address both remain possible, though the former slightly longer odds than the later.

May your Spring 2014 be bringing each of you new life and growth, for you and your businesses.

A LIFE UNLIMITED begins with you, stellar product provided, and the will to know, all is well!

A NOTE FROM HOME by Uncle Russ : The Builders

In CategoryMoringa Benefits, Zija is Superior

The Builders

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
(1807-1882

All are architects of Fate,
Working in these walls of Time;
Some with massive deeds and great,
Some with ornaments of rhyme.

Nothing useless is, or low;
Each thing in its place is best;
And what seems but idle show
Strengthens and supports the rest.

For the structure that we raise,
Time is with materials filled;
Our to-days and yesterdays
Are the blocks with which we build.

Truly shape and fashion these;
Leave no yawning gaps between;
Think not, because no man sees,
Such things will remain unseen.

In the elder days of Art,
Builders wrought with greatest care
Each minute and unseen part;
For the Gods see everywhere.

Let us do our work as well,
Both the unseen and the seen;
Make the house, where Gods may dwell,
Beautiful, entire, and clean.

Else our lives are incomplete,
Standing in these walls of Time,
Broken stairways, where the feet
Stumble as they seek to climb.

Build to-day, then, strong and sure,
With a firm and ample base;
And ascending and secure
Shall to-morrow find its place.

Thus alone can we attain
To those turrets, where the eye
Sees the world as one vast plain,
And one boundless reach of sky.

 

In looking through some older formulation books,  I found this Longfellow poem, I thought you each might reflect on and enjoy.  As I have told many of you, always strive in your endeavors to create, contribute, conserve, or covert for the better.  Each of you has talents bestowed that has brought you to this time and place, with a wonderful opportunity in wellness, that I pray you each will not squander.   The world knows little nor will long remember each of us, but it will remember what we did, if together we Drink Life In towards a Life Unlimited.
