Merck secondquarter profit more than doubles tops forecast

by Linda A. Johnson, The Associated Press Posted Jul 29, 2014 5:29 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Merck second-quarter profit more than doubles, tops forecast A big one-time gain and a tax benefit helped drugmaker Merck & Co. more than double second-quarter profit, improve its profit forecast and top analysts’ expectations.The maker of popular Type 2 diabetes pill Januvia said Tuesday that net income increased to $2 billion, or 68 cents per share, from $906 million, or 30 cents per share, in the same quarter a year earlier.Merck, based in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, said its earnings, adjusted for one-time gains and costs, were 85 cents per share. Analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research expected 81 cents.Merck recorded a $741 million gain from AstraZeneca PLC, which exercised its option to buy out Merck’s interest in the British drugmaker’s heartburn drugs Nexium and Prilosec.The world’s fourth-biggest drugmaker’s revenue fell 1 per cent to $10.93 billion, still $220 million above Wall Street expectations.CEO Kenneth Frazier said on a conference call that Merck favours smaller acquisitions — like its $3.85 billion purchase of hepatitis C treatment developer Idenix Pharmaceuticals Inc., expected to close this quarter — and is not looking for a deal enabling it to move its legal headquarters to a country with a lower tax rate.That strategy, called inversion, is suddenly hot in corporate America. The U.S. has the world’s highest corporate tax rate, 35 per cent, but pharmaceutical companies here generally pay well under 30 per cent.Chicago-based drugmaker AbbVie Inc. just reached a $55 billion deal to combine with British counterpart Shire PLC and incorporate in Britain.BernsteinResearch analyst Dr. Timothy Anderson wrote to investors that Merck “will likely have another flattish year in 2014 in terms of financial performance but then growth should return more consistently.”Merck noted it expects by early next year to launch two new drugs awaiting approval: long-delayed suvorexant for insomnia and pembrolizumab for advanced melanoma. The latter is part of the promising new class of drugs that stimulate the immune system to identify and attack cancer cells.Meanwhile, Merck got U.S. approval in April for two tablets to gradually reduce grass and ragweed allergies, and in May for anticlotting drug Zontivity.Sales of Merck’s prescription drugs fell 2 per cent to $9.09 billion. Top sellers were Type 2 diabetes pills Januvia and Janumet, up 2 per cent at $1.58 billion, and cholesterol medicines Zetia and Vytorin, up 6 per cent to a combined $1.13 billion.Merck’s consumer health segment had the biggest sales increase, up 19 per cent to $583 million. In May, Merck agreed to sell that to Germany’s Bayer for $14.2 billion. It includes Claritin and the Coppertone sun-care line.Merck said it expects full-year sales of $42.4 billion to $43.2 billion and profit of $3.43 to $3.53 per share, excluding one-time items. In January, it forecast $3.35 to $3.53.In morning trading, Merck shares were up 72 cents at $58.69. They have increased 20 per cent in the last 12 months.___Follow Linda A.

UN condemns recent spate of deadly terrorist attacks in Iraq

“The Secretary-General is concerned that these cowardly attacks claimed by ISIL at funerals, markets, and places of worship are aimed at undermining the unity of the people of Iraq. He appeals to them to reject such attempts at fear-mongering,” a statement issued today by his spokesman said. On Monday, at least 38 people were killed and dozens more were injured by a suicide bomber at a funeral in Muqdadiya, about 60 miles north of Baghdad, while a suicide blast at a security checkpoint in Baghdad’s western outskirts killed at least eight members of the security forces, according to reports. These attacks came after two bombs targeted a market on Sunday in Sadr City, north of Baghdad, killing at least 70 people and injuring at least 100 others. Expressing heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims as well as to the Government and people of Iraq, the UN chief wished a speedy recovery to those who were injured. Reiterating the UN’s commitment to support Iraq in its work to promote national dialogue and reconciliation, Mr. Ban also called on the Government of Iraq to ensure that the perpetrators of the crimes are “swiftly brought to justice.” In a separate statement today, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Iraq, Ján Kubiš, strongly condemned the attacks as well.“This is a particularly vicious and cowardly terrorist attack on peaceful civilians who were going about their daily business in a market. It is clearly aimed at inflaming sectarian strike,” Mr. Kubiš said. read more

At UN Assembly Saudi Minister highlights his countrys efforts to further international

Saudi Arabia is focused on peaceful solutions to conflict and is undertaking various mediation efforts, Minister Adel Ahmed Al-Jubeir, told world leaders gathered at the UN Assembly on Friday.The “historic and essential” peace agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea, facilitated by Saudi Arabia, illustrates the crucial political role played by the country, he added.On the conflict in Yemen, the Saudi Minister said that Houthi militia continue to manufacture missiles and carry out activities that destabilize the region. Underscoring the need for a political solution to the crisis, Minister Al-Jubeir said that Saudi Arabia will continue to facilitate all humanitarian efforts to alleviate the suffering of the Yemeni people.He also highlighted the plight of the people of Syria, where the crisis is into its eighth year, and stressed that the country’s people must be able to live on their own soil.Affirming that terrorism remains a major challenge for the world, including in his own region, the Minister informed the Assembly of the institutions established by Saudi Arabia to strengthen the fight against violent extremism.He also denounced Iran for continuing aggressive and terrorist activities and spoke out against extremist and hateful rhetoric spread by Qatar through its media outlets.In his address, Minister Al-Jubeir said that “international regime”, which has existed for centuries is pillared in sovereignty and respect for international law. “This is not up for discussion. Sovereignty is a red line that cannot be crossed,” he said.The Foreign Minister also highlighted the rights of the Palestinian people, including their right to an independent State, and called on all countries to respect relevant Security Council resolutions.Full statement (in Arabic) available here. read more

Fishermen appear in Louth court after NI trawlers seized by Irish naval

The Amity and the Boy Joseph in Dundalk Bay. Image: PA Wire/PA Images 61,240 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Updated Mar 1st 2019, 3:00 PM THE DETENTION OF two UK-registered fishing vessels Dundalk Bay has sparked a political row between the Irish government and the DUP, who accused Leo Varadkar of dragging his heels on a fishing agreement in order to use it as a Brexit bargaining chip. The two trawlers were detained in Dundalk Bay by Naval Service vessel the LÉ Orla on Tuesday for alleged breaches of fishing regulations.The two captains of the vessels appeared at Drogheda Court today, where a judge said they were of “absolute integrity” and did not deserve a conviction, reports the BBC.“This should be dealt with absolute discretion,” the judge said.Both men received the benefit of Section 1.1 of the Probation Act (they weren’t convicted), and their impounded boats were ordered for immediate release.VoisinageMinister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Michael Creed confirmed this morning that these were the first two vessels detained by the Defence Forces since a Supreme Court ruling in 2016 which found a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ called voisinage had no legal standing.Voisinage, roughly translated as “neighbourliness”, allows fishing vessels registered in Northern Ireland to fish from 0-6 nautical miles up to Irish coasts, and vice versa.The arrangement was brought to the Supreme Court which ruled in 2016 that despite Ireland having signed up to the arrangement as part of the London Fisheries Convention (1964), there were no provisions for it in Irish law.Irish vessels, however, are still permitted to fish in the 0-6 nautical miles around Northern Ireland and Great Britain.Although the Irish government has argued in favour of changing the laws, it’s been met with strict opposition in the Dáil and Seanad, resulting in the legislation being stalled.In a tweet and press statement released today, DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds said the “Irish Prime Minister must explain why two Northern Ireland trawlers have been impounded by an Irish Navy warship”. He said the tactics demonstrated that Leo Varadkar and Simon Coveney “are entirely focused on Ireland and are fair weather friends to Northern Ireland”.“When Leo Varadkar talked about soldiers on the border he didn’t mention the Irish sending warships with 76mm guns.”Other DUP and unionist politicians have also raised concerns about the detention. Dodds’ party colleague Jim Shannon said in the House of Commons that he was “appalled” at the actions of the Defence Forces.He claimed that the waters were disputed, and that the naval service had illegally seized vessels that were in “waters that belong to this great nation, this British nation”.The Irish government’s response Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed. Source: Leah FarrellSpeaking on Morning Ireland, Minister Creed said that the reciprocal agreement between Northern Ireland and the Republic that had been observed since the 1960s was acknowledged by the Supreme Court to be “a good idea” but needed to be put on a statutory footing.Creed said the government had been doing everything possible to avoid the kind of situation that developed in Dundalk Bay from taking place, but that legislation giving effect to the fishing agreement had stalled in the Oireachtas.He said he understood the “annoyance and upset” the detention of the vessels had caused in the broader political community.Tánaiste Simon Coveney had been in touch with Fianna Fáil yesterday evening, Creed added, and it was hoped legislation governing the issue could now be fast-tracked in the coming weeks.He said he rejected entirely any accusations linking the issue with Brexit, pointing out that issues to do with fishing rights in that inshore zone were solely a matter for sovereign governments and nothing to do with the EU.The row comes as Taoiseach Leo Varadkar travels to Belfast today to meet with business leaders for discussions on Brexit and the impasse at Stormont. He is also due to deliver an address at the Alliance Party’s annual conference dinner. Naval service vessel the LÉ Orla Source: Press MilitaryThe two vessels detained this week have been escorted by the LÉ Orla to Clogherhead and were handed over to An Garda­ Sí­ochána, last night’s Defence Forces statement said. The alleged offences for the two captains of the vessels were: Vessels illegally fishing within the Exclusive Fishery Limits of the State, contrary to Section 10(1) of the Sea Fisheries and Maritime Jurisdiction Act 2006.  Illegal entry into the Exclusive Fishery Limits of the State at a time when prohibited so to do, contrary to Section 8(1) of the Sea Fisheries and Maritime Jurisdiction Act 2006.The Naval Service detained seven fishing vessels in 2018, of which two were UK-registered fishing vessels.- with reporting from Gráinne Ní Aodha The Amity and the Boy Joseph in Dundalk Bay.

This Lord of the RingsThe Hobbit collection costs a cool 800

first_imgHopefully by now you all own The Lord of the Rings trilogy. If there were any films that needed to be owned by the discerning geek, it’s these. You need a demo disc to show off your home theater setup? There are moments in each and every film to choose from. You want to see how an entire film is made? You can watch hours upon hours of documentaries.The Extended Editions did a tremendous job of selling us all little statues and trinkets over the course of their numerous home video releases, but they’re not done with us just yet. Now that The Hobbit Extended Editions are available as well, Warner Bros. has announced the Middle-Earth six-film collection containing both trilogies. It’s a set that will offer every single bit of Middle-Earth ever created and it carries a frankly obscene price- $800.How can they justify that price tag? Let us count the ways, as you can see in the unboxing below. Dominic Monaghan was convinced to appear in the video to sell them, perhaps by being offered a set of his own as a fee.As you can see the set comes with the three Lord of the Rings films so you can reminisce upon greatness, and the three Hobbit films so you can ponder what went wrong while watching Peter Jackson self-destruct in real-time. They come in frankly gorgeous faux-leather-bound hardcover books that are full of art chosen by the fans as their favorite scenes from the movies, and it even contains a wooden shelf to place them on.There are a staggering 30 Blu-ray discs containing every version of every film, as well as the incredible special features that made previous sets must-owns. The collection also contains a replica of Bilbo Baggins’ Red Book of Westmarch that features some stunning artwork from the series.So yes, this is a truly great-looking set and any true fan would love to own it, if not for that astronomical cost. Fortunately you can currently get it on sale for the low, low price of $599!For those of us on a budget WB is also releasing a barebones six-disc movies-only set that costs a mere $60 or so, but it’s weirdly only with the theatrical versions. Strange of them not to release an Extended Edition set.Here’s a better idea- pick up both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit extended edition box sets. You won’t get the artbook or shelf but you’ll have saved almost $600 in the process, which you can use to buy all manner of Tolkien memorabilia to decorate your home with.last_img read more

Distraction On Street And Sidewalk Helps Cause Record Pedestrian Deaths

first_img Share Bebeto Matthews/APDrivers being distracted by their devices is a well-documented, rising cause of traffic crashes, but there is a growing number of pedestrians, too, who can become oblivious to traffic around them.It’s the oldest and most basic form of transportation — walking — and more people are doing more of it to get fit or stay healthy. But there’s new evidence today that even walking across the street is getting more dangerous.A report released by the Governors Highway Safety Association shows that the number of pedestrians killed in traffic jumped 11 percent last year, to nearly 6,000. That’s the biggest single-year increase in pedestrian fatalities ever, and the highest number in more than two decades.“It is alarming,” says GHSA executive director Jonathan Adkins, “and it’s counterintuitive.”“There’s been an assumption that, because of increased safety of vehicles as we move toward semi-autonomous vehicles, that traffic deaths were going to go down,” Adkins says. “We’re seeing just the opposite, unfortunately, with a particular spike as it relates to pedestrians and cyclists.”Last month the National Safety Council reported that traffic deaths overall went up 6 percent nationwide in 2016.Maureen Vogel, spokeswoman for the council, says it stands to reason that pedestrian fatalities would rise as part of that trend, but she and other safety experts did not expect the rise in pedestrian deaths to so significantly outpace other traffic-related fatalities.“A perfect storm” of factors spurred the increase, Vogel says: A stronger economy and low gas prices have put more cars on the road and have people driving more often, “but that is really only part of the story … so something else is at play here.”One possibility can be seen during rush hour in downtown Chicago just by looking at both the drivers of the dozens of vehicles inching through traffic and the scores of pedestrians crossing the busy intersections. One thing many have in common is that their eyes are down, staring at their phones.“We are crazy distracted,” says Melody Geraci, deputy executive director of the Active Transportation Alliance, a Chicago group advocating for better walking, cycling and public transportation options. “After speeding and the failure to yield, distractions are the number three cause [of pedestrian fatalities], particularly by electronic devices.”Drivers being distracted by their devices is a well-documented, rising cause of traffic crashes, but there is a growing number of pedestrians, too, who can become oblivious to traffic around them.“We have noticed over the years increases in the number of injuries related to distracted walking — pedestrians being distracted by cell phones and then injuring themselves because of that distraction,” says Vogel, referring to National Safety Council data. “So it’s entirely possible that is at play, not just on our roadways but on our sidewalks.”But a bigger problem remains vehicle speeds.“Speed is a killer for sure,” says Geraci. “If a pedestrian is struck at 20 miles an hour, they have a 10 percent chance of dying. If they are struck at 40 miles an hour, they have an 80 percent chance of dying.”New York City lowered its speed limit on most streets to 25 mph a couple of years ago to help protect pedestrians; other cities are considering slowing speeds, too.And researchers are looking through the data to see if they can come up with other ways to make streets safer for those crossing on foot. According to the GHSA report, 74 percent of pedestrian fatalities happen at night, and 72 percent of those killed were not crossing at intersections.Another significant factor is alcohol.The GHSA report indicated that 15 percent of pedestrians killed each year are hit by a drunk driver, while 34 percent of pedestrians killed are legally drunk themselves. That’s right: one-third of pedestrians killed in traffic had blood-alcohol (BAC) levels above the .08 threshold for drunk driving.“We’ve done a good job in highway safety in telling people that when you go out to the bar and you’re drunk, don’t get behind the wheel,” says Adkins. “But you should really be careful about walking, particularly if you’re walking at night, and you’re walking a distance. You’re not gonna have good judgment, a car’s not gonna see you … [so] don’t walk home at night when you’re hammered.”He and other safety advocates say lower speed limits, better road designs, and more sidewalks can help reduce the fatalities.So can new vehicle technologies that alert drivers to the presence of pedestrians — but many drivers don’t understand it, don’t know how to use it and thus disable the technology.“It’s not as if there aren’t solutions out there,” says Adkins. “We know what needs to be done, it’s just having the will to do it.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

Survey finds Costa Rica hotel occupancy rates less than stellar

first_imgThe main vacation period in Costa Rica, between December and January, showed low income for hotels in the country.A survey by the National Chamber of Tourism (CANATUR) of 152 hosting companies across the country found that 40 percent deemed hotel occupancy during that period as “regular,” while 30 percent considered it “poor,” 12 percent said it was “good,” and only 7.3 percent said it was “very good.”The research also found that most Ticos who traveled during this period opted for one- and two-star hotels.Establishments with fewer than 100 rooms were occupied at a rate of 62.9 percent, while hotels with more than 200 rooms had occupation rates of 15.6 percent.The Pacific provinces of Guanacaste and Puntarenas were the regions with the highest percentage of local tourism, while the Northern Region, the Central Valley and the Caribbean were the least visited.The beach is the preferred destination of Ticos, and hotels in these areas reported 41 percent occupancy during the period surveyed.The CANATUR study was conducted during the first and second week of February.

It’s like, ‘Is that really how we’re viewed?’”Hubbard ended up making a personal documentary about the case. “Nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up” makes its world premiere Thursday as the opening-night film for the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, which runs through May 5.The film will also screen at the DOXA Documentary Film Festival in Vancouver, which runs May 2-12.Hubbard narrates and appears in the doc, which looks at the inequity and racism in the Canadian legal system that came to light through the trial, and the Boushie family’s pursuit of justice.The director, writer and producer also puts the lens on her own life as she examines the history of colonialism on the Prairies and what kind of future is in store for her son and nephews.The word “nîpawistamâsowin” in the film title means “a small group of people standing up for themselves or standing up on behalf of the larger group,” said Hubbard.Hubbard is from Peepeekisis First Nation in Treaty Four Territory and has ties to Thunderchild First Nation in Treaty Six Territory.In the film she explains she was adopted and raised by a homesteading family in southern Saskatchewan.Her birth dad, whom she got to know as a teen, lives on Red Pheasant and is married to Colten’s aunt. And Colten’s cousin, Jade Tootoosis, is married to Hubbard’s cousin. But Hubbard said she wasn’t close with the Boushie family before making the doc.Hubbard wasn’t even looking to make a film when Boushie was killed. She had just finished the acclaimed documentary “Birth of a Family” and was busy with that, she noted.But she was so struck by what had happened, she felt compelled to document it.After speaking with the National Film Board of Canada, which produced “Birth of a Family,” she realized her upbringing in Saskatchewan could help contribute to the doc as it looked at stereotypes, oppression and pervasive, ingrained thinking in the media, movies and education system.“I think sometimes you acknowledge, living as an Indigenous or person of colour in this country, people live with racism and people deal with it and acknowledge it. But to come to terms that that could be celebrated — I started to cry telling my producer this and she said, ‘This is really powerful.’”Hubbard said she hopes the film will help draw attention to the Boushie family’s suggestions for changes to the legal justice system to address issues including jury selection.“This is the time — and it was the time 10 years ago, it was the time 20 years ago, it was the time 30 years ago,” said Hubbard, who also wrote and directed the 2004 doc “Two Worlds Colliding.”“I just want my boy and every other person’s Indigenous child to be safe and free to walk on our own land. It’s that simple.”Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Debbie Baptiste, left, and Jade Tootoosis are shown at United Nations building in New York in this still from the documentary “Nipawistamasowin: We Will Stand Up” in this handout photo.
