Genzyme says it is still up for sale

Sanofi has hinted it may take its offer directly to Genzyme shareholders if the company refuses to enter discussions based on its current offer.“I think a hostile situation is unlikely to occur here,” Termeer said in an interview with Reuters. “We need each other too much in terms of future value. It may well be that they go that way, but I would recommend against it if I were advising the other side.” He said there was a “high probability” that a deal would eventually be consummated, given the two companies’ strategic needs. Sanofi faces the loss of some 20 per cent of its revenue by 2013 as generic competition erodes sales. Genzyme is the world’s leading maker of drugs for rare genetic diseases, generating sales in 2009 of $4.5bn.

Secretary General issues statement clarifying events leading up to ACC

first_img Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Tags Rector Bath, NC [Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Communion Office has released this statement in response to recent comments on events leading up to the Anglican Consultative Council meeting, ACC-16.Statements circulating about a failure to follow up on the decisions of the January 2016 Primates meeting at best give a false impression. The terms of the Primates decision about The Episcopal Church (TEC) have been followed through as far as is possible and legal. To say otherwise is misleading and wrong.The Archbishop of Canterbury has fulfilled his responsibilities and asked those members of interfaith or ecumenical bodies who are from TEC and whose appointment he controls, to stand down, and they have done so. In addition, as required, he has appointed a Task Group with representatives from across the communion.Archbishop Justin has refused to engage in any public response to statements and speculation by any party in advance of the ACC, having maintained personal and private contact with the Primates since their meeting. It has always been his intention to speak directly and in person to the ACC members, respecting their role and responsibilities.A TEC representative whose attendance at the ACC Standing Committee has been commented on as breaching the decision of the Primates, was elected to the Standing Committee several years before the Primates’ meeting. As the Standing Committee is a Trustee body under English law, they cannot be removed without legal cause, and neither the Primates nor the ABC, nor indeed the ACC, can override the law.Under the Constitution of the ACC, no-one who is a recognised delegate from a member Province can be prevented from being nominated to the Standing Committee. However during their first day in session, Archbishop Justin presented a report to the ACC of the Primates meeting. As promised he requested the ACC to work with the Primates for the welfare of the whole Communion.He said “As Archbishop of Canterbury (a separate Instrument) I have acted on the Primates’ decision in those areas for which I have responsibility. It is both my and the Primates’ desire, hope and prayer that the Anglican Consultative Council should also share in working through the consequences of our impaired relationships.”There have also been suggestions of criminal action including forgery and corruption in which the Archbishop of Canterbury and Anglican Communion Office staff have been mentioned.It is the practice of the ACO to book the flights and cover the costs for all delegates attending ACC meetings, though some choose to cover their own costs. To imply that on this occasion this established practice is corrupt is disingenuous. Tickets were arranged well before any indications of non attendance by a small number of Provinces.The unsubstantiated public allegations of forgery against the members of the Kenyan delegation are scurrilous and untrue and are made in a manner against all biblical principles of appropriate behaviour.Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon,The secretary general of the Anglican Communion Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Anglican Consultative Council Anglican Communion, This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Submit an Event Listing Joseph Pagano says: The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Albany, NY Curate Diocese of Nebraska New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

The project seeks to recuperate the construction values of an old existing vernacular house which was made out of dry stone, a traditional technique of the area of great tectonic value. However the distinctive attributes inherent to this construction technique (compactness, massiveness, minimum openings, obscure interiors, weight) deny the extraordinary environment where it is located: on top of a mountain, with views to 2 different valleys that are faced by the two only façades of the house.Save this picture!The project elaborates on a series of interior horizontal partitions that are supported by two vertical containers that behave both as structural elements and as divisions of the continuous spaces. Those vertical elements generate vertical continuity within the overall house, and even allow to eventually transform it into two independent homes. But more than any other thing the project places on top of the last slab a vast continuous roof made out of two planes that in their intersection generate a long sore that enables the view of the summit of the mountain from the interior; the roof doesn’t rest directly on top of the stone wall, so a second continuous longitudinal sore is created, permitting incredible views to the valley. The definition of the section of the roof is the definition of the character of the main space of the house.Save this picture!By preserving the original structure and doing a minimal yet contrasted intervention, the idea is to generate new and contemporary spaces for living, respecting the historic envelope. On the basement of the house, and responding to a structural weakness of a section of the existing wall, a big opening is shaped within the dry stone wall. Such opening permits amazing views and interior natural lighting to a second living and dining room; the rest of spaces accommodated within the old enclosure have a remnant sense of the old construction, although they are distributed according to new ways of living, in a more contemporary reading of architecture.Project gallerySee allShow lessMore on Phase Two / Field Operations + DS+RArticlesIvy Building / GENETOArticles Share CopyAbout this officeCadaval & Solà-MoralesOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasRefurbishmentHousesSanta Comba3D ModelingSpainPublished on June 24, 2010Cite: “Guinovart Florensa Residence / Cadaval & Solà-Morales” 24 Jun 2010.

This has included CAST overseeing the creation of BECCA, Breast Cancer Care’s new community support app, and QuidsIn, Oxfam’s digital payment service for families on the cusp of food poverty. The Big Lottery Fund award will help more charities and voluntary organisations across the UK benefit from this intensive development process and follow-on support.Breast Cancer Care’s BECCA appThe learning resources will draw on CAST’s experience from working with a range of charities through its Fellowship and accelerator programmes, and will include peer support together with a digital innovation kit that a voluntary and community sector organisation can use to steer its own route to digital transformation.Dan Sutch, co-founder and director of CAST, said:“The digital revolution isn’t about apps and websites; it’s about a fundamental change in the way we find information, people and support. At the heart of great digital development is a shift to user-led, test-driven design, working closely with people and their communities to create effective and empowering services. We urgently need to engage community organisations to join this revolution, and harness the potential of digital technology to achieve their mission.”  117 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 8 August 2016 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Damage caused by LGH flooding could cost 10 million euro more than insurance payouts…

first_imgHomepage BannerNews 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan fire Dear Mr Murphy Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry WhatsApp I refer to the above.You were quoted in an RTE report of 6 August 2014 as stating that an investigation into the flooding incident that occurred on 5th August 2014 was ongoing and that:”We are not going to speculate as to what these findings will be. We will publish the result of the investigation as soon as is feasible. More than anyone else in Donegal, we want answers.”Taken at face value and in isolation a reader of those words might have expected a very prompt and comprehensive report to issue where failures would be indentified and measures set out to apportion responsibility to all persons involved in construction of the new A&E building at the Hospital which ultimately led to both floods at the Hospital. The public would also expect that persons would be held accountable for any failures contributing to the very substantial losses occasioned to the State as a result of the 2 floods – there will be no satisfactory “answers” without accountablity.However it is now almost 9 months later and you have still not produced any investigation report despite your statement in August 2014 that “More than anyone else in Donegal, we want answers.”It does not appear to me that there is any urgency being given to dealing with this matter. This is totally undermining any public confidence which might have existed and instead the Donegal public simply do not believe that full and proper explanations of all relevant matters will be produced. I have examined the first ‘report’ (if it can be called that) which was produced in the aftermath of the July 2013 flood. Unfortunately that report did not address the underlying flood risks which existed at the Hospital site which risks subsequently were in action again in the flooding incident of August 2014.At this stage you will have seen the report prepared by Donegal County Council which has indentified various failures of the HSE as regards the planning process. This report makes it clear that the concerns of Donegal County Council planners were not addressed by the HSE and this is a matter that needs detailed explanation.It is also the case that various other issues need to be addressed once and for all:In seeking planning permission for the new A&E building what consideration was given to the number of pre-existing reports which identified a clear flooding risk at the Hospital? Were these pre-existing reports ignored or not understood? Who is responsible for that – is it HSE management and/or the professional engineers employed on the new building development?When there was a flood during construction of the building in 2009, what consideration was then given to the obvious propensity for flooding at the hospital and if no consideration was given or inadequate consideration was given, who is responsible for that – is it HSE management and/or the professional engineers employed on the new building development?How is it that no one at the Hospital, either management or those employed to advise on the new A&E building was able to identify the obvious flood risks that existed up stream both from the river up stream and also from storm water which could travel down the main public road and into the site? Why were drains not installed at the perimeters of the site?Following the July 2013 flood why were the above obvious flood risks not immediately addressed, especially in circumstances where same were repeatedly highlighted by Donegal County Council planners in the context of the HSE planning application then submitted in relation to the culvert pipe only. Were the HSE engineers authorised by the HSE to advise council planners that “it was not their remit to address potential flooding around the remainder of the hospital”. Who do the HSE say is responsible for not dealing with these matters in 2013 which subsequently allowed the August 2014 flood to occur?What has been the precise cost to the State arising from the 2013 and 2014 floods – in other words what is the precise deficit to the State between the damage caused and the actual amount of insurance compensation obtained. This has been speculated to be in the region of 10 million Euro and clarity is required on this.Have the HSE taken advice on whether it has any recourse against 3rd parties for the loss to the State occasioned by the 2 floods and if so what is that advice?How many out-patient appointments were delayed by the 2 floods and have the HSE identified how many operations were delayed by the 2 floods?When will the out- patient services that have been moved off site in the aftermath of the first flood be returned to the hospital campus and what has been the cost of moving out-patient services off site to the privately owned premises? Will the HSE confirm a return date for these out-patient services to the Hospital campus to minimise any further costs to the State.These are the questions which the Donegal Public want answers to and if as you have been previously quoted as saying “More than anyone else in Donegal, we want answers”, I trust that the much delayed report will deal with all of these matters. The Donegal Public expect that persons will be held accountable for any failures contributing to the very substantial losses occasioned to the State as a result of the 2 floods and should any report be produced which ignores these issues, then these matters will remain to be addressed.I await hearing from you to confirm when a report will now be issued and to confirm that all of the above matters will be addressed in full within that report.Yours sincerely The letter in full – Re: Floods at Letterkenny General Hospital in July 2013 and August 2014 – the need for accountability Google+ WhatsApp Twitter Facebook By admin – April 29, 2015 Google+ Pinterest A Donegal Councillor says there is speculation that the amount paid out by insurers following flooding at Letterkenny General Hospital could be as much as 10 million euro less than the actual costs incurred.Cllr Dessie Shiels has written a letter to the Manager of Letterkenny General Hospital outlining a number of questions which he says must be answered in the wake of the flooding in 2013 and 2014.In his letter to Hospital Manager Sean Murphy, Cllr Shiels says a number of questions need to be answered.He asks what consideration was given at the planning stage to pre-existing reports which identified a clear flooding risk at the Hospital, and also asks for details of a reported flood in 2009 during the construction phase, and what the reaction to that event was.He also raises a number of questions abvout the 2013 flood, and the response to it particularly in respect of the application in relation to the new culvert.He also raises financial issues, including the cost to the State arising from the 2013 and 2014 floods. Cllr Shiels says there is speculation that there was a 10 milliion euro difference between the damage caused and the actual amount of insurance compensation obtained, and clarity is required on this.

‘Need Concerted Action By All Stakeholders’: Chhattisgarh High Court Takes Suo Moto Cognizance On COVID Medical Needs

first_imgNews Updates’Need Concerted Action By All Stakeholders’: Chhattisgarh High Court Takes Suo Moto Cognizance On COVID Medical Needs Akshita Saxena22 April 2021 7:24 PMShare This – xThe Chhattisgarh High Court has taken suo moto cognizance of the tsunamic second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and the inadequacy in medical infrastructure to tackle the same. A Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice PR Ramachandra Menon and Justice Parth Prateem Sahu has asked the State authorities about the plight of plight of patients, who were reportedly administered Oxygen support while they were lying on the hospital floor due to shortage of beds. The Bench was hearing an urgent application, highlighting dearth of beds and oxygen support in the hospitals. The Bench stated that even though no proper proceedings have been filed by the Petitioner, considering the extreme urgency of the issue projected, it is inclined to treat the application as a suo moto proceeding. The Applicant has however been directed to file proper proceedings within one week from the date of lifting of the lockdown. The applicant had complained that lack of beds and oxygen in hospitals is virtually driving the patients with serious conditions to run from pillar to post. It had also sought a direction to the Railway authorities to provide specialised medical coaches with infrastructure to help the Corona patients. During the hearing, as the Central and State authorities tried to shift burden regarding setting up of makeshift railway coaches for Covid treatment, the Bench remarked, “The attempt of the Court is never to find fault with anybody, be it the Central Government, State Government, Railways or any other Establishment. The need of the hour is to have a concerted action by all the stakeholders, rising to the occasion and in extending hands to the needy general public who fall prey to the pandemic.” It has directed the State Government to file a proper requisition through the Nodal Officer of the State to the Nodal Officer of the Railways forthwith, for allotment of the Special Medical Coaches based on the SOP issued by the Health Ministry last year. State denies shortage of medical infrastructure During the hearing, Advocate General SC Verma submitted that there is absolutely no lapse or dereliction on the part of the authorities of the State in providing necessary infrastructure and treating Covid-19 patients. He pointed out that as on date, 67,07,690 tests have been conducted (RTPCR, TruNat and Rapid Antigen Test). Further, 6 medical colleges, 37 dedicated Covid Hospitals and 154 Covid Care Centers are operational. Furthermore, to ensure availability of Oxygen, 15 Oxygen Generation Plants have already been installed and setting up of 9 more Oxygen Generation Plants are under way. Verma told the Bench that there are 198 Covid Hospitals in which a total number of 8322 Covid beds are available, out of which 3616 are Oxygenated beds. The AG insisted that there is no much scarcity of beds or Oxygen support as in many places, the beds are lying vacant. Unconvinced, the Bench asked the Government to reconcile the above data with the plight of patients who were reportedly lying on Hospital floors due to acute shortage of beds. The State has also been asked to make a submission with regard to availability of “mobile” RTPCR testing Laboratories. The matter is now fixed for hearing tomorrow, at 2.30 PM. “The tsunamic second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic has made everybody scary of the situation which is spreading at lightning speed affecting even the young and healthy…The only silver lining in the cloud is that the scientists have become successful in formulating vaccine and as on date, a mass vaccination is going on in the country with two vaccines, while introduction of more vaccines is in the pipeline,” the Bench expressed hope.

Modelling Circumpolar Deep Water intrusions on the Amundsen Sea continental shelf, Antarctica

first_imgResults are presented from an isopycnic coordinate model of ocean circulation in the Amundsen Sea, focusing on the delivery of Circumpolar Deep Water (CDW) to the inner continental shelf around Pine Island Bay. The warmest waters to reach this region are channeled through a submarine trough, accessed via bathymetric irregularities along the shelf break. Temporal variability in the influx of CDW is related to regional wind forcing. Easterly winds over the shelf edge change to westerlies when the Amundsen Sea Low migrates west and south in winter/spring. This drives seasonal on-shelf flow, while inter-annual changes in the wind forcing lead to inflow variability on a decadal timescale. A modelled period of warming following low CDW influx in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s coincides with a period of observed thinning and acceleration of Pine Island Glacier.last_img read more

Ventilation of the abyss in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean

first_imgThe Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean is the world’s main production site of Antarctic Bottom Water, a water-mass that is ventilated at the ocean surface before sinking and entraining older water-masses—ultimately replenishing the abyssal global ocean. In recent decades, numerous attempts at estimating the rates of ventilation and overturning of Antarctic Bottom Water in this region have led to a strikingly broad range of results, with water transport-based calculations (8.4–9.7 Sv) yielding larger rates than tracer-based estimates (3.7–4.9 Sv). Here, we reconcile these conflicting views by integrating transport- and tracer-based estimates within a common analytical framework, in which bottom water formation processes are explicitly quantified. We show that the layer of Antarctic Bottom Water denser than 28.36 kg m−3 γn is exported northward at a rate of 8.4 ± 0.7 Sv, composed of 4.5 ± 0.3 Sv of well-ventilated Dense Shelf Water, and 3.9 ± 0.5 Sv of old Circumpolar Deep Water entrained into cascading plumes. The majority, but not all, of the Dense Shelf Water (3.4 ± 0.6 Sv) is generated on the continental shelves of the Weddell Sea. Only 55% of AABW exported from the region is well ventilated and thus draws down heat and carbon into the deep ocean. Our findings unify traditionally contrasting views of Antarctic Bottom Water production in the Atlantic sector, and define a baseline, process-discerning target for its realistic representation in climate models.last_img read more
