The CMA allows for emergency use of CT-P59 in adult patients aged 60 years and over, or with at least one underlying medical condition (cardiovascular, chronic respiratory disease, diabetes, high blood pressure) with mild symptoms of COVID-19, and adult patients with moderate symptoms of COVID-19. The CMA is based on Part 1 of the Phase II/III trial which showed;Patients treated with CT-P59 reporting a significantly reduced risk of COVID-19 related hospitalization and oxygenation up to Day 28Progression rates to severe COVID-19 were reduced by 54% for patients with mild-to-moderate symptoms and 68% for moderate patients aged 50 years and overA significantly shortened time to clinical recovery in CT-P59 treated patients (40 mg/kg) ranging from 3.4 to 6.4 days quicker compared with placebo. “With the pandemic still raging in Korea, we believe today’s Conditional Marketing Authorisation of Regdanvimab marks an important milestone in the fight against COVID-19” said Dr. HoUng Kim, Ph.D., Head of Medical and Marketing Division at Celltrion Healthcare. “Patients with COVID-19 in Korea now have access to a therapy according to the authorised indications early in the course of their infection. We remain committed to closely working with the regulatory agencies worldwide including the U.S. FDA and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to ensure that patients around the world have access to safe and effective treatment against COVID-19 as in the case of Korea.” A global Phase III clinical trial is currently recruiting and expected to enrol 1,172 patients with mild-to-moderate symptoms of COVID-19 in more than 10 global sites to evaluate efficacy and safety results of CT-P59. Celltrion is set to demonstrate clinical efficacy against COVID-19 in both UK and South African variants and the results to be expected in the coming days. – ENDS – Notes to Editors: About Celltrion Healthcare Celltrion Healthcare is committed to delivering innovative and affordable medications to promote patients’ access to advanced therapies.

Brother of Chicago Bears legend among 10 charged in illegal gambling scheme

first_img Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSezeryadigar/iStock(CHICAGO) — Casey Urlacher, the brother of Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher, was among those charged this week in an illegal offshore gambling scheme.Urlacher and eight others helped supposed ringleader Vincent Delgiudice — also known as “Uncle Mick” — take sports bets and placed them in an illegal sports book based in Costa Rica, prosecutors alleged in a 28 page indictment unsealed in the Northern District of Illinois.“It was further part of the conspiracy that Vincent Delgiudice used Federal Express to cause the cashier’s checks and money orders to be delivered to the addresses in Costa Rica supplied by Individuals 1 and 2,” the indictment says. “And others who worked for or were associated with Company A.”Urlacher is also the Mayor of Mettawa, Illinois and prosecutors alleged that he also made bets with Delgiduice, who prosecutors say accepted wagers from as many as 1,000 gamblers.According to the Justice Department, a “law enforcement search of Delgiudice’s residence in Orland Park seized more than $1.06 million in cash; silver bars and jewelry valued at $347,895; and gold coins valued at $92,623.”DOJ added, “The indictment seeks forfeiture of these items, as well as Delgiudice’s residence. It also seeks a personal money judgment against Delgiudice of $8 million.”Bettors, including Urlacher, would send or meet with Delgiudice and pay him in cashier’s checks, before creating a website to further illegally bet on sports games — the website was called “unclemick.com.”One of Deligudice’s co-conspirators, Matthew Knight, once texted a message to Gambler A, which said “Morning Bronco, going through figs, can you please tell Bronco 33 to pay or play, hasn’t played since February down 938.”In another instance Deliguidice told another co-conspirator “Todd Blaken by phone that he had 1,006 “customers” and had won $100,000, or “about $100 per player.”A lawyer for Urlacher has not returned ABC News’ request for commentCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Norway’s $1tn wealth fund ditches mining heavyweights over coal performance

first_imgThe world’s biggest sovereign wealth fund has withdrawn investment from mining firms Glencore and Anglo American over coal standards, and put BHP on notice Norway’s powerful investment vehicle has tightened its criteria for coal miningThe Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global – informally known as the Oil Fund – is the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund, investing revenues from the country’s substantial oil industry into stocks and shares in many of the world’s largest businesses.It owns almost 1.5% of all shares in the world’s listed companies, making it one of the most powerful investment vehicles internationally.Portfolio activities are controlled by Norwegian policymakers, and in recent years the criteria to which the fund holds companies accountable have become more sharply focused on environmental standards — largely in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.New guidelines added to its assessments were introduced last year to crack down on coal miners and coal power producers, leading to the exclusion of Glencore and Anglo American — along with energy providers Sasol, RWE and AGL Energy.Norges Bank, which administers the fund on behalf of the Norwegian government, said these firms had breached the new rules — which limit thermal coal extraction to 20 million tonnes per year and coal power capacity to 10,000 megawatts (MW).These added to the existing criteria which stipulate the firms in which the fund invests should not derive more than 30% of their income from thermal coal, or base 30% of their operations on the carbon-heavy resource.Miner BHP, along with Vistra Energy, Enel and Uniper, were all placed under special observation for their approach to the new coal guidelines, meaning they will come under heightened scrutiny when future investment decisions are being made. Vale excluded for tailings dam failuresVale was excluded for a “repeated dam breach” following the Brumadinho tailings dam collapse in January 2019 that killed an estimated 237 people and caused severe damage to the local environment in the Minas Gerais region.The incident, Brazil’s largest industrial disaster, came after the Samarco dam collapse in 2015, which killed 19 people at the iron ore project that was a joint venture between Vale and BHP.Norway’s Council on Ethics, which made the recommendation for Vale’s exclusion from the wealth fund noted that “there are several similarities between the two incidents”, with the common defects in the dam constructions posing “unacceptable risk” to future investment.An investigation into the exact circumstances of the Brumadinho disaster is currently underway, but a number of other investment groups have voiced similar concerns about the safety of tailings dams.center_img Norway’s Oil Fund has dropped its support for a number of energy companies over their coal use and environmental standards (Credit: Glencore) Norway’s trillion-dollar sovereign wealth fund has ditched a host of big-name mining and energy firms from its investment portfolio for breaching its standards on coal use and environmental performance.Miners Glencore and Anglo American have been excluded from the Government Pension Fund Global for violating newly-introduced criteria limiting coal activities, while BHP has been put on an observation list for future investment decisions.The fund has also sold its interests in Brazilian mining giant Vale due to “unacceptable” contributions to “serious environmental damage” relating to the fatal Samarco and Brumadinho tailings dam disasters of 2015 and 2019.Along with these mining heavyweights, several oil and gas firms have also been removed on the basis of “unacceptable greenhouse gas emissions” from oil sands projects, including Canadian Natural Resources, Cenovus Energy, Suncor Energy and Imperial Oil.German utilities giant RWE has also been excluded for breaching the wealth fund’s criteria for coal use, which was updated in September last year with tighter regulations around the amount of thermal coal companies either use or produce.last_img read more

RecSports returns with added COVID precautions

first_imgNotre Dame RecSports recently announced its plans for intramural sports and other recreational events to take place this fall with added safety precautions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Interhall women’s flag football and men’s three-on-three soccer leagues began Monday, with more sports leagues and events set to begin in the coming weeks.This fall’s RecSports programming will be designed to allow student participation while also ensuring their health and safety. Masks must be worn at all times by all event participants and staff regardless of physical distance during activities. Team roster sizes will be limited depending on square footage of playing areas, the ability of participants to physically distance and the capabilities of facilities to provide proper physical distancing between individual games. Equipment will be cleaned with disinfectant before, during and after play, and rosters will be strictly adhered to for contact tracing purposes with no additions permitted at game sites. Additionally, participants will be encouraged not to share any personal equipment, and pinnies will not be provided for teams to distinguish from one another.“RecSports continues to work with University officials to ensure that the leagues and tournaments we offer are conducted with the highest regard to safety,” RecSports director Mark Williams said in an email. “We understand that these are very challenging times for all of us and especially our students, and we spent the summer months working to develop programming that adheres to University standards.”There are a total of 11 intramural leagues and tournaments set to take place this year, with additional programming added for weekends. All three recreational facilities on Notre Dame’s campus, including the Smith Center, Rockne Memorial and North Dome, have reopened as of Monday. RecSports is also offering both in-person and virtual fitness classes and is currently coordinating practices for club sports.Williams spoke to the importance of getting students back to participating in recreational activities amid the pandemic.“We recognize that our students are very active and how vital safe recreational sports and fitness are to them,” he said. “RecSports will continue to work to provide our students with opportunities to play and engage in safe recreational sports and fitness activities.”Some students, like junior Jacob Messineo, are also excited to be participating in RecSports events this year. Messineo, who serves as the RecSports commissioner for Dunne Hall, said he is glad there will be intramural sports this year.“I’ve been doing my best to promote all of the new programming to students in Dunne, and kids seem to be receptive to all of the safety protocols,” Messineo said. “I’m looking forward to getting back to playing sports with friends, and I plan to make a team for the three-on-three soccer tournament.”Messineo said he hopes students continue to follow the new safety guidelines throughout the fall season.“I think RecSports has done a great job of trying to keep people safe this year,” he said. “I hope that the season can finish without anyone breaking the guidelines.”Tags: covid protocols, mark williams, rec sportslast_img read more

My parents were stoners and that’s why I don’t want marijuana legalised

first_imgNZ Herald 24 November 2017Family First Comment: Great commentary from a mum…“What will it be like if we legalise? Don’t you wonder what message it will send to children? Or doesn’t that matter? I worry that legalisation will continue to perpetuate the myth that it’s a harmless drug. I worry that children will once again be voiceless in the face of stoned parenting. It will become the norm for many. If marijuana is legalised, it will be even more inescapable than it is now…”A public referendum on legalising cannabis for personal use may be held by the 2020 election as part of a possible agreement between the Green and Labour parties. One mother shares her own story to explain why she’s desperately hoping legalisation won’t happen.It’s a highly unpopular opinion for a 30-something year-old parent to have. It’s why I can’t put my name to this story. I am the odd one out of almost all of my friends and my family: I don’t smoke marijuana and I don’t want it legalised.When I smell marijuana – which is fairly often despite it being an illegal substance in New Zealand – I feel sick to my stomach. I often break into a cold sweat and it can sometimes, on vulnerable days, trigger a panic attack.I grew up around marijuana. The smell alone takes me back to that childhood of lazy neglect.I never had a bed-time story as they were usually asleep on the couch or zoned out in front of the television. I was often left at school or weekend activities for hours on end because they’d forget to pick me up. They forgot birthdays so regularly I just got used to not having birthday parties. I never invited anyone over because I was so embarrassed.What will it be like if we legalise? Don’t you wonder what message it will send to children? Or doesn’t that matter?I worry that legalisation will continue to perpetuate the myth that it’s a harmless drug. I worry that children will once again be voiceless in the face of stoned parenting. It will become the norm for many.If marijuana is legalised, it will be even more inescapable than it is now. I already have to deal with smoking at concerts – stoners feel they have the right to do this, then they laugh at the idea they’re getting others high.I do not, and cannot, support legalisation. I have seen first-hand the harm. I have seen what it does to children. I have seen what it does to adults. It feels like a desperately lonely position to hold among my age and peer group; almost all the adults I know whose parents smoked a lot are now heavy users themselves. This is understandable – it’s often the same with the children of alcoholics. I don’t blame them. How could I?READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11947457last_img read more

How the Dodgers outplayed Brewers in Game 7 to return to the World Series

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “This one’s by far more special than any other one because of the way we got here,” Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said. “Being 10 games under early in the year, nine games back, going into September in third place at one point, forcing a Game 163 and then winning that division for a sixth time, coming here and playing a seventh game in a really, really tough place to play on the road.“It’s just been a special year all the way around.”The Game 7 victory that got them there featured the hallmarks of this Dodgers team – home runs and a key contribution from one of their multi-position moving pieces.Cody Bellinger (the NLCS MVP) hit a two-run shot in the second inning off Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin to give the Dodgers the lead. Despite the Brewers trailing, Craig Counsell played his ace, bringing Josh Hader into the game in the third inning.Hader pitched his expected three scoreless innings. As soon as he left, the Dodgers were back in business.Max Muncy led off the fifth with a single off reliever Xavier Cedeno. Justin Turner followed with another off reliever Jeremy Jeffress who did get Manny Machado to fly out and Bellinger to bounce into a forceout.That brought up Yasiel Puig, who had a special moment with Jeffress in Game 3, gesturing in frustration at Jeffress to give him something to hit as he drew a ninth-inning walk in the Brewers’ shutout victory.Jeffress gave him something to hit this time – a 1-and-1 curveball that Puig hammered over the center field fence. The three-run shot (one of Puig’s three hits) bookended Bellinger’s blast around Hader’s run.For the NL leaders in home runs this season, the Dodgers’ first multi-home run game of the NLCS couldn’t have come at a better time. Counsell’s bullpen machinations meant nothing as the Dodgers turned to their own bullpen, closing it out with 4-1/3 innings of scoreless relief – the last inning by Clayton Kershaw.But everything might have been different if not for a play by Taylor in the fifth inning.With the Dodgers clinging to just a one-run lead at the time, Lorenzo Cain doubled with two outs, sending Dave Roberts to his bullpen. Pitching on back-to-back days for the first time in his major-league life – and one day after learning his grandmother had died – Julio Urias came in to face Christian Yelich.Yelich homered in the first inning off Dodgers starter Walker Buehler. This time, he drilled a slicing drive into the left-center field gap that had game-tying double written all over it.“At that point in time, I thought the game was tied,” Roberts said. “But CT got a great break on the ball and really made a game-saving play. Once the game is tied, anything can happen. The momentum shifts.”Bellinger put it even more bluntly.Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start center_img “That was the catch of the year,” he said.Taylor ran it down at the warning track and made a spectacular, sliding catch to rob Yelich of the hit.“The way it was slicing off the bat, my original route was kind of off. I had to kind of banana back,” Taylor said of the catch.Taylor’s route to the catch was even more circuitous than that. He went from the Dodgers’ starting center fielder on Opening Day to their shortstop after Corey Seager was lost to elbow surgery to part-time player moving all over the diamond after the acquisition of Manny Machado – but emblematic of the Dodgers’ road back to the World Series.“The struggle was real this year,” Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi said in the celebratory locker room. “From being 10 games under .500, the dogfight in the division, going to Game 163, really having our backs up to the wall coming into this game – easy really wasn’t in our playbook this year up to this point. So I guess it was fitting that this went to Game 7.” PreviousEmpty bottles are seen as Los Angeles Dodgers celebrates in the clubhouse after Game 7 of the National League Championship Series baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, in Milwaukee.

(AP Photo/Matt Slocum)ExpandMILWAUKEE — And … they’re back.After 12 months of talking about it, planning for it and praying for it, the Dodgers will get their do-over. Neither Tommy John surgeries for their shortstop nor diminished velocity for their ace nor a season extended to 163 games could stay these Dodgers from the completion of their round trip.Thirty years to the day after the clinching victory in their last World Series championship, the Dodgers got another chance to end the drought that has followed, beating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday night.“Oh, countless. Countless,” Dodgers outfielder Chris Taylor said when asked how often the team had talked collectively or thought individually about getting back to the World Series. “That was the message from Day One of spring training. Honestly, it was the message from after Game 7 last year. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “I think we learned from that as a team and everybody thought about this moment and getting back to the World Series and finishing the job this time.”The Dodgers will begin play in their 20th World Series on Tuesday at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox – the long-awaited rematch of the 1916 Series between the Red Sox and Brooklyn Robins (won by the Sox in five games).“I’m excited about going to Boston,” Dodgers team president and CEO Stan Kasten said, a twinkle in his eye as he delivered a line he’d been preparing since the Red Sox won the ALCS.“I think it’s a little unfair to make us play these high-payroll teams. But we’re going to give it our best shot.”The Red Sox had the highest payroll in the majors this year (approximately $228.4 million) while the Dodgers ($197 million) slipped to third after five years of leading the majors.last_img read more

Cattle on Feed Report Summary

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By DTN StaffThis article was originally posted at 2:02 p.m. CDT on Friday, Sept. 20. It was last updated at 2:44 p.m. CDT on Friday, Sept. 20.**OMAHA (DTN) — Cattle and calves on feed for the slaughter market in the United States for feedlots with capacity of 1,000 or more head totaled 11.0 million head on September 1, 2019. The inventory was 1% below September 1, 2018, USDA reported on Friday.Placements in feedlots during August totaled 1.88 million head, 9% below 2018. Net placements were 1.82 million head. During August, placements of cattle and calves weighing less than 600 pounds were 385,000 head, 600-699 pounds were 300,000 head, 700-799 pounds were 424,000 head, 800-899 pounds were 440,000 head, 900-999 pounds were 230,000 head, and 1,000 pounds and greater were 105,000 head.Marketings of fed cattle during August totaled 1.95 million head, 2% below 2018.Other disappearance totaled 61,000 head during August, 11% above 2018.“There’s no argument that Friday’s Cattle on Feed report came back bullish,” said DTN Livestock Analyst ShayLe Stewart. “The only figure that was above September 2018 standards was cattle/calves on feed and only by a mere 1%.”“Placements coming in even lower than analysts’ projects goes to show just how much effect the Tyson packing plant fire had on the industry. Very few cattle traded, and most cattlemen found it easier to keep their pens full than try to sell pens on a down and volatile market.”**DTN subscribers can view the full Cattle on Feed reports in the Livestock Archives folder under the Markets menu.

For example, an electric utility might consider connected products as an enabler of a broad smart grid initiative. Similarly, an industrial machine builder may build connected products to improve the performance of specific assets on the factory floor. A healthcare provider might look at connected devices as a mechanism to increase patient health monitoring for preventive prescriptions. Once business outcomes and the use cases are clearly defined, it is easier to evaluate technologies and ecosystems best suited for these outcomes. Equally important is an articulation of how the business envisions, the connected product will be used by stakeholders and customers. Use case definitions and scenarios are very effective at identifying the various feature-sets and functionalities that the product needs to fulfill. Once the business outcomes and use-cases are developed, the organization can make tradeoffs associated with building a minimum viable product. Figure 2: Lifecycle of Connected Products Should Lead with Business OutcomesBuilding the minimum viable product as a proof-of-concept is the next step and requires deciding on technology platforms and cloud interactions. Hardware decisions regarding the right components and systems that can facilitate rapid development occur in this phase.  Getting access to the right expertise and solution ecosystem is paramount at this stage. Incorporating security across all levels of the product and throughout the product lifecycle is one of the most important aspects for consideration. If security is not thought through with enough expert help, the product will be vulnerable at later stages of deployment and can become a massive liability for the provider and customer. Once the technology design, platform choice and security layers of the application are all solidified into an acceptable proof of concept, scaling the solution with robust production and deployment processes gains prominence. Approaches for cloud-based management and monitoring of connected products should be defined and developed. Zero-touch provisioning, data collection for analysis and remote optimization of field devices are important considerations at this stage.A successful product lifecycle for connected products incorporates three fundamental aspects – device hardware lifecycle that involves silicon level choices, product lifecycle that involves software and firmware choices and a data lifecycle that focuses on managing the data collected from provisioning to optimization.

The ability to create integrated digital connections, from the edge all the way to the cloud is enabling new business models that capitalize on novel value-added services, and simultaneously open new modes for humans to interact with machines. While the promise and potential of digital connectivity is enormous, it requires skilled resources and new technology-based innovation for any organization to undergo a transformation.The ChallengeFor the typical business stakeholder, the business cycle is fraught with challenges. Commoditization due to hyper-competition and price pressures are the leading factors that impact hardware product profitability. In addition, increased expectations from customers for new features at marginal prices further strain traditional businesses. Concurrently new entrants threaten incumbents with disruptive innovations that can alter key competitive dimensions and increase the need for shortened time-to-market schedules. The SolutionConnected product initiatives aim to overcome these challenges while modernizing product portfolios.For effective impact, connected products need to be functionally interactive, self-aware and resilient.  In addition, products need mechanisms for self-healing when problems occur. Connectivity should also enable data collection, pattern recognition, and ultimately predictive functions to foresee problems and facilitate preventive actions. Such a product concept requires product designers and technology architects to envision products as a series of layers. The figure below lays out a reference architecture that fulfills the aspirations of a typical connected product. Implementation of such architecture requires domain-wide expertise and experience.  Many customer projects fail due to the lack of these two crucial elements. Arrow and its portfolio of eco-system partners recognize these challenges and have conceived a solution portfolio to help organizations eliminate failure while developing connected products.Figure 1: Multi-Tier Architecture of Connected Products (Source: Gartner)Watch the on-demand webinar: The New Product Lifecycle – strategies for successfully building and managing a thriving connected product Top 5 Areas Where Companies Want IoT Solutions Small Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Related Posts Scott ChmielMicrosoft Business Development Manager at Arrow Electronicslast_img read more
