DO NOT DROPSHIP These 5 Items (WARNING - Products that Will LOSE You Money)
We reveal 5 products that you should NOT dropship… if you don’t want to lose money! ►► Free $10,000/Month ebook: http://wholesaleted.com/4-step ►► The Dropship Club (Step-By-Step Training): https://thedropshipclub.com 10 Things to Do BEFORE Dropshipping: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPKvNTly7Pg How to Not Get Sued When Dropshipping: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtEkAyKapds (SPOILER ALERT: Below we reveal why you shouldn’t be dropshipping these items… so if you want to play along and see what score you get, don’t read this!) Why You Shouldn’t Dropship Product #1: Because It Has Very Few Reviews The first Aliexpress product revealed in this video to avoid is very risky. It is tempting because it is making a lot of sales - indicating that there is demand for it. But with very few historical reviews, you don’t have enough information to know if a supplier will be good at fulfilling orders (especially if you start selling a lot). Will the quality of the items go down as the production goes up? Is the supplier good at shipping this item out on time? How many people truly like the item that they receive? A small number of reviews isn’t enough to make an assessment on this. It can be very tempting to sell items that have very few reviews - especially if it’s in a hot niche that lacks products. But I strongly recommend avoiding them because you’re risking getting refunds, disputes and chargebacks if the supplier can’t follow-through. Why You Shouldn’t Dropship Product #2: Because it Contains Trademarks This Star Wars mug is illegally using the Star Wars logo - a trademark they don’t have permission to reuse. Dropshipping this is very bad for two reasons: 1) The product will get removed from Aliexpress because it is illegal. It is only short-term money. 2) It’s illegal to sell it, and you are risking getting into trouble with the law by dropshipping it. Why You Should Dropship Product #3: Because it’s VERY Boring & Generic A lot of people ask us the same question: why would a customer purchase an item from your store at a markup, when they can go to Aliexpress or Amazon.com and buy it from there instead for cheaper? Won’t the potential customer price-check your item? The answer to this is that they won’t… if you focus on getting the customer to IMPULSE BUY and on creating SCARCITY. To get a customer to want to impulse buy, you need to make them have an emotional reaction to the item that they are seeing. They need to look at it and really, really want it. That is why the guitar mug that we featured in this video sells so well - because it’s the perfect item for someone the both plays guitar and loves hot drinks. Scarcity is also very important. This is when you make the customer feel that they have a limited amount of time to take an action. A good way to create scarcity when dropshipping is to run limited-time-offers, e.g. you’ll sell the next 20 products at a 60% discount. This makes the customer take action and purchase it so they don’t miss out on the 60% discount. And, because they think they are already getting a good deal, they don’t bother to price-check the item against Aliexpress/Amazon.com. But with generic/boring products, it’s very difficult to make them impulse buy because the item is not very exciting and doesn’t appeal directly to something they love. In addition, it’s very hard to create scarcity because they can buy generic/boring products from anywhere cheaply. So stick to selling unique, original, special items. Why You Shouldn’t Dropship Product #4: Because It Doesn’t Have ePacket Shipping Make sure you ship items that have 2-3 week delivery options (like ePacket) so that customers get their items faster. This will make customer support a lot easier and you’ll get less emails from unhappy customers asking where their item is. Why You Shouldn’t Dropship Product #5: It Has TERRIBLE Photos Good photos showcase what is unique and special about an item. This item (electric bottle opener) does not do this at all. The unique element to this item is that you can watch the cork go up the bottle opener. However, the pictures do not show this at all. Instead, they are just photos of the actual product itself, which looks boring. As a new dropshipper, you will want to take advantage of free stock photos that your supplier provides, which means that you need to focus on dropshipping (and testing) products that have great photos as they are the most important part of the ad and product listing.

How to Not Get Sued on Amazon (Importing ILLEGAL Items from China) & Protect Yourself
Learn the 3 common reasons people get sued on Amazon (and how to avoid them). ►► Free $10,000/Month ebook: http://wholesaleted.com/4-step ►► 7 Things to Do BEFORE Selling on Amazon: https://youtu.be/66eeFdjzsQU ►► How to Not Get Sued When Dropshipping: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtEkAyKapds When selling on Amazon, there a 3 common reasons that people find themselves getting sued. Here is how to avoid them: #1: Your Product Hurts Someone (Or Property) & They Sue You For Damages If your product hurts someone, then they could potentially sue you for damages. This is particularly relevant in the USA which doesn’t have a public healthcare system, and the USA is the biggest online marketplace for Amazon. This is why Amazon requires that, if for 3 months, your sales exceed $10,000 in revenue, you are required to get insurance for at least $1,000,000 in coverage. Prior to this though, Amazon does not require you to get insurance. The easiest way to safeguard yourself against getting sued for this is to avoid products that are a potential risk. Anything that includes blades, heating elements or sharp edges is going to have a higher risk over simple items (the example used in this video of a “simple item” is a headphone case). This also has the advantage that insurance for “simple items” is going to cost less than for riskier items. If you start out with a simple, less risky item, you’ll also be able to lower the cost of insurance for future “riskier” items by consolidating insurance (the more items you have insured, the cheaper it usually is to insure them as there is a discount). #2: Your Product Contains Trademarks or Copyrighted Images When manufacturing and importing products from China, you are going to have access to a lot of products containing copyrights and trademarks. In the video, the example used is that on Alibaba there are a lot of different items containing Mickey Mouse (the character is protected under both copyright and trademark law). Unfortunately, a lot of people make the mistake of thinking that because companies are producing and selling these items, that they have the right to do so. This is not the case. They aren’t producing/manufacturing because they have the right: they are doing it because they know that they can usually get away with it. Internationally, copyrights are usually honoured. China has also agreed to honour them. However, they are rarely enforced which is why infringement is so rampant (despite being illegal). The reason it is so rarely enforced is because culturally in China, if something is easy to copy and distribute to the masses, this is considered a good thing to do. In the West, the cultural perspective is different: we view that the rights of the individual are more important. So do not import items breaking copyrights/trademarks. Your products will be taken down off of Amazon, and you are risking having legal action taken against you. #3: Your Products Violate Patents Something interesting about patents is there is no such thing as an “international patent.” While countries will usually agree to honour copyrights, there is no protection for trademarks. You need to file your Patents in each individual country. This means that Chinese manufacturers regularly product items that are protected by patents in other countries like the USA. In the video, an example of a product that is patented in the USA is one by Wigzi. It has patented dual dog leashes that contain the following features: * Has the leashes attached to a rotating wheel that is separate from the handle (to stop the dogs getting tangled). * Has individual triggers for each leash, so you can control the length for each one. * Has the leashes colour-coded to match the colours of the triggers. There are several manufacturers on Alibaba that are producing dual leashes that have these exact same features. And as there is no active patent for this style of dog leash in China, they are allowed to sell them. But if you were to import them to the USA and sell them on Amazon.com it would be a big mistake as Wigzi would get your listing taken down, and could potentially sue you. When conducting product research, look to see if there are any other similar items on Amazon listed. If the item has unique features and there are no other products like it listed, there is a good chance that it is patented. You can then go to the website owned by the company listed as the seller and see if they have any patents on their site. Usually, they’ll have them listed very clearly. You can then go to Google patents and check to see if the patent is still active.

Why you can't get the lifesaving drugs you need | Ellen 't Hoen | TEDxZurich
Access to medicines patents can be a question of life and death in the developing world. Global discussions have centred on how to prevent the "tragedy of the anti-commons," in which use of important drugs is off-limits due to the intellectual property rights while also preserving incentives to innovate. The Medicines Patent Pool is an initiative that goes beyond the discussion clearing away medicines patent barriers to increase access to new, affordable HIV treatment in developing countries. Ellen 't Hoen is an independent medicines law and policy consultant. She has particular expertise in the area of access to medicines and intellectual property. Her most recent achievement is the establishment of the Medicines Patent Pool to accelerate the availability of low cost HIV treatments in developing countries through patent licensing. In 1981 she co-founded DES Action the Netherlands and remained its coordinator until 1990. In 1990 she joined Health Action International to head the policy and campaigns unit. From 1996 until 1999 she was the international coordinator of the independent medicines journal La Revue Prescrire/Prescrire International and the International Society of Drug Bulletins (ISDB). From 1999 until 2009 she was the Director of Policy and Advocacy at Médecins sans Frontières' (MSF) Campaign for Access to Essential Medicines. In 2009 she became the Senior Adviser for Intellectual Property and Medicines Patent Pool at WHO/UNITAID where she set up the Medicines Patent Pool which aims at brokering and making available patent licenses to antiretroviral medicines with the purpose of increasing access to low-cost and better adapted ARVs, for example pediatric formulations or fixed dose formulations for use in low and middle income countries. She was the executive-director of the Medicines Patent Pool until June 2012. She won several awards for her work on the effects of exposure to the drug (DES) in the 1980s and 1990s, including the prestigious Harriet Freezerring award in 1989. In 2005, 2006 and 2010 she was listed as one of the 50 most influential people in intellectual property in the world by the journal Managing Intellectual Property. She is a research fellow at the IS HIV/AIDS Academy of the University of Amsterdam and authored the book "The Global Politics of Pharmaceutical Monopoly Power. Drug patents, access, innovation and the application of the WTO Doha Declaration on TRIPS and Public Health." which was published in January 2009 and is available for free download here: http://www.msfaccess.org/content/global-politics-pharmaceutical-monopoly-power. She is a member of the World Health Organization's Expert Advisory Panel on Drug Policies and Management and a member of the advisory board of Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM).

What Drug Dealers Can Learn From Walgreens, with Stephen J. Dubner
Author Stephen J. Dubner analyzes the economics of drug dealing in the most Freakonomics way possible, comparing the capitalist tendencies of Walgreens with your friendly neighborhood gang of crack dealers. Dubner's latest book is "When to Rob a Bank" (http://goo.gl/enQzf8). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/stephen-dubner-on-what-drug-dealers-can-learn-from-walgreens Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - In our first book Freakonomics we wrote about the economics of a crack selling gang in Chicago. And it was really fun and interesting because we have these assumptions that if you sell drugs you become a millionaire. And it turns out that the average criminal drug selling gang is set up kind of like a franchise, kind of like a McDonald’s really. And that if you own ten McDonald’s you do pretty well, you make good money. And if you’re a manager at one you do okay. But if you’re an employee at one, you know, you make very little money. And it turns out that’s the way a drug gang works. That the vast majority of the profits are concentrated at the top. And so we made the argument that, you know, the average crack dealer isn’t, you know, they’re not very well off and the average crack dealer lives at home with mom and often has a second job at a place like McDonald’s. Well if crack dealers could take lessons from their legitimate drug selling counterparts they could do a lot better. So here’s what I mean by that. Generic drugs we think – most people seem to think because they’re generic they’re priced the same. That seems to be kind of the way we think it should work. But as it turns out if you look at the pricing data on generic drugs across different companies, retailers, that sell it there are instances where I could go to a Walgreens and buy a bottle of, you know, pills, generic let’s say a statin and it would cost about $110. And the same exact bottle of pills at a different place like a Sam’s Club or a Costco would cost literally about $10 or $15. So a markup of like 1,000 percent for the same product that is sold by two companies that look pretty similar and that are generic moreover. So when you look at this data it’s just shocking. You think how can this possibly be. Not only how can they get away with it. I mean anybody can charge anything they want. Nobody has to buy it but why would people buy it. And it turns out the reason is very simply that most people who get their, buy their prescriptions in a given place, especially a lot of older people who you get more drugs as you – you buy more drugs as you get older and you’re more on a kind of plan. They just kind of make the assumption that a generic pill is going to be priced the same from one to the next. But it turns out there’s massive, massive disparity in that. So really, you know, Walgreens is way better at dealing drugs than drug dealers are if the goal is profit maximizing. And I think that even though the people who are just selling at the counter at Walgreens, they are I’m sure not making very much money. You know the shareholders of Walgreens appreciate that a firm like Walgreens is really good at dealing drugs and profit maximizing. So from an economic perspective you have to applaud them. From a fairness perspective you have to decry them. On the other hand that’s what capitalism is about. It’s about, you know, caveat emptor, you are free to shop around. And if someone can take advantage of what’s called information asymmetry, right, people on different sides of a transaction – I know a lot more about this price than you do – they can exploit it. That’s what’s good about the digital revolution is it makes information asymmetry much harder to maintain. So I don’t know if such an app exists but a good one would be a very, very, very, very simple price comparison for generic drugs. And it would presumably off the bat save, you know, elderly Medicare patients billions of dollars within a month. Of course it would cut into the corporate profits of those shareholders but that would work.

5 Most Common Injuries In Pro Cycling & How They're Treated | Tour de France 2018
Emma sat down with EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale’s Team Doctor Kevin Sprouse at the Tour de France to discuss the five most common injuries he sees in professional cycling and how they are treated. Cyclists are notoriously tough and riders have been known to finish races with some quite serious injuries! *50% Off* White & Yellow T-Shirt: http://gcn.eu/Kv Fan Kit Bundles FREE cycling cap this month: http://gcn.eu/Kw Subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Register your interest in the GCN Club: http://gcn.eu/Kx Subscribe to GCN en Español: http://gcn.eu/gcn-en-espanol From broken collarbones to the ever common road rash, Sprouse discusses what he treats most commonly in the pro peloton. He shows us the dressings he uses for the riders and a super cool ultrasound scanner for checking bones. An inherently high-risk sport, cycling attracts a lot of injuries with many rider’s seasons being shaped by such problems. Luckily for us mortals, crashing is less common, but be sure to stay safe out there on the roads! Have you ever had any of the injuries mentioned in this video? Let us know in the comments.

Katherine Eban on The Open Mind: The Helpless U.S. in the Global Pervasiveness of Fraudulent Drugs
On this week's episode of The Open Mind, investigative reporter Katherine Eban discusses pharmaceutical counterfeiting. Eban uncovered the comprehensive picture of how under-policed generic companies operate for Fortune Magazine. As she writes, “It’s not a tale of cutting corners or lax manufacturing practices, but one of outright fraud in which the company knowingly sells substandard drugs around the world including in the US, while working to deceive regulators.” Watch on PBS: http://www.pbs.org/show/open-mind/ Watch on Thirteen.org: https://www.thirteen.org/openmind/science/the-real-drug-crisis/5943/ Follow The Open Mind on Twitter: https://twitter.com/OpenMindTV Follow Katherine Eban on Twitter: https://twitter.com/KatherineEban Follow Alexander Heffner on Twitter: https://twitter.com/heffnera In this episode of The Open Mind, we discuss how the high cost of medication in the United States has led us into the arms of foreign powers to produce low-cost generic drugs. Big Pharma companies have become experts in how to fraudulently market drugs and alter data in manufacturing labs. Yet, top executives are not put in jail. The FDA, originally set up as a domestic agency, finds itself tasked with becoming a global policeman of foreign manufacturing plants. Ill-equipped for this responsibility, overseas manufacturing plants often end up fooling the FDA to gain approval for drugs that don’t actually work. While the impact on patients will likely never be known, it’s clear that millions of people worldwide got medicine of dubious quality. What do we need to do to start tackling worldwide drug counterfeiting? Eban argues that the United States can start by regulating drug prices to take some of the profit and heat out of the pharma marketplace, releasing us from the arms of low-cost drug makers in developing countries like India and China. Bringing drug production back to the United States can be pricey, but Eban believes we are a couple of scandals away from widespread awareness in terms of drug pricing. Eban suggests that we need a consumer revolution to spark change, and stresses the importance of remaining persistent throughout our unusual news cycles, holding onto and pushing through important issues.

How to Treat Adult Acne [DermTV.com Epi #494]
Dr. Schultz, in other episodes, has discussed the causes of adult acne, and in this episode of DermTV, he discussed how to treat adult acne. Subscribe to DermTV: http://www.youtube.com/dermtvdotcom http://DermTV.com Connect with DermTV: http://www.facebook.com/dermtv http://www.twitter.com/dermtv [TRANSCRIPT] Adult acne continues to increase and become more common. Other episodes of DermTV have discussed what causes adult acne and how to prevent it. Today, I'll tell you how to TREAT it because it's a little different from how you treat teen acne. According to a study presented at the American Academy of Dermatology meeting in 2012, more and more female adults are getting acne. The statistics are alarming: 45% of women in their 20's, 26% in their 30's, and 12% in their 40's. And in fact, from my experience, I would have thought the percent in the 40's is even higher, where these women also have the unfortunate double whammy of pimples meeting wrinkles! Lets start with washing...you still need to wash twice a day, even though you're not as oily as you used to be. Most acne cleansers are designed for teenage oil and water, where the skin is very oily and not dry. However, as you get older, your facial skin tends to get drier from accumulated sun damage and simply from the aging process. So adult acne with less oily and more dry skin requires milder cleansers and alcohol free toners. Cleansing needs to be gentle, so don't use a wash cloth. Yes, in theory the cloth can help with some physical exfoliation, but for better exfoliation, use a chemical exfoliant like glycolic or even salicylic, so use your hands when washing your face. And also make sure the water is warm, not hot, to avoid over drying already dry skin. Next, since our hair also dries out as we age, conditioner becomes more important after shampooing. But make sure to thoroughly rinse your forehead afterwards so your conditioner doesn't coat your skin and cause breakouts. For spot treatment of blemishes, not only are you dealing with dryer skin, but since adult acne often affects the jaw line and top of your neck... more sensitive skin areas than mid and upper face as in teen acne... for spot treatments try 1% salicylic products instead of 2%, and 2 ½% benzoyl peroxides instead of more drying 5% or 10%. While prescription topical antibiotics are great, make sure yours isn't a combination antibiotic with a retinoid like tretinoin - more commonly known by the brand name Retin-A. Retinoids can very easily irritate these areas. But my favorite and the best treatment for controlling adult acne is the off label use of low dose isotretinoin, formerly available as Accutane, and today readily available as a generic or under brand names like Ascorbica. Recent studies have shown excellent control with daily doses as low as 5mg per day. But you'll need to see your dermatologist for this one. The FDA controls access to it with greater security than the Federal Reserve guards its gold inventory. [ABOUT DERMTV] Everyone can have beautiful, healthy, and younger looking skin, and DermTV, the Internet's daily skincare video show, will demonstrate how by revealing expert tips and techniques and by providing real solutions for real skincare issues. Skincare (whether cosmetic or medical) previously required a trip to your dermatologist or a shopping spree at the pharmacy. And that's if you have a trusted nearby dermatologist or a local informed pharmacy. But not anymore. We at DermTV are committed to making best-in-class dermatology and skincare guidance accessible to everyone, anytime, at your computer. Every weekday, our host, Dr. Neal Schultz, one of New York's most trusted and respected dermatologists, teaches skincare's most timely and timeless issues. Topics include: the best at home techniques and new technology for facial rejuvenation, preventing and fixing sun damage from wrinkles to skin cancer, breaking news in dermatology, general skincare topics, and more.

06-16-15-Clip 01-Generic vs Brand Name Drugs-Global Black Feminist Reading Circle
GENERIC VS BRAND NAME DRUGS [Begins at 04:17] - In this segment, Black Feminist Women and Men were joined by physician Dr. Thaddeus John Bell who led us in discussion on generic versus brand name drugs. Dr. Bell made the point that generic drugs work just as well as brand name drugs, though the generic may cause side effects and require more doses than the brand name drug; and that significant cost differences exist between the two types of medications, which is why profit-focused insurance companies often opt first for the generic version, and may not cover the brand name at all. He also said insurance companies will give patients a list of what they cover, and that list may be reviewed with the patient’s doctor. Summary: In the 06-16-15 meeting of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle, we closed the book on this session’s reading selection: "Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present,” by Harriet A. Washington. Reflecting on key lessons and lingering concerns, we explored the queries: What sort of questions should we ask when accessing the healthcare system, to maximize our personal safety and protect ourselves from medical abuse?; and, What are the key lessons we should hold onto from "Medical Apartheid?" We also announced our Session 4 reading selection - "Parable of the Sower" by Octavia E. Butler – and decided to begin our collective journey with this sci-fi title on August 4, 2015. Finally, we announced our decision to close Session 4 (and possibly Session 5) to existing conversationalists, with a promise to re-open the Hangout to new members in the near future. We were honored again by a special appearance of Dr. Thaddeus John Bell, Founder and Executive Director of Closing the Gap in Healthcare, Inc., which works to reduce health disparities through health literacy, scholarships for medical education to African Americans and other means. More information on his work may be found at http://www.closingthegapinhealthcare.com/index.html. L. Michelle Odom facilitated this meeting, and was joined by co-host Randie Henderson and members Venita Goines Walker, Georgette Moses, Joel Jones and Kim Brandon. ---------------------------------------------- Music: “Check Your Math” By DJ Spooky, Album: Of Water and Ice; FreeMusicArchive.org ---------------------------------------------- Featured Art by LaShun Beal. -------------------------------------------------------------- The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle f/k/a “The National Black Feminist Book Group,” began Session 3 January 20, 2015 and will run through June 16, 2015.

Brandon Colby: "The Genetic Revolution and Predictive Medicine" | Talks at Google
We stand at the forefront of the Genetic Revolution, which now allows us to personalize products and services to our genes. While the Information Age created unprecedented instantaneous worldwide access to our civilization's information, the Genetic Revolution provides a way for us to personalize that information to each individual. Because of this, information is able to evolve from being generalized to being all about one single person: YOU. Brandon Colby, MD, is a world leader in the fields of genetic testing and predictive medicine. Dr. Colby will discuss the current and near-future technologies that are fueling the genetic revolution as well as the difference between genetic testing and genetic analysis. Specific focus will be applied to how genetic information is now being used by healthcare professionals to predict and prevent a large number of diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and even Alzheimer's. The talk will also include specific ways in-which you and your family can use the information contained within your genes to protect your health and wellness not in ten or five years, but today.

Medical Beneficiary and Pharmaceutical Services Division’s Drug Price Regulation
The Medical Beneficiary and Pharmaceutical Services Division (MBPSD) led the development and implementation of the Drug Price Regulation, part of the Pharmaceutical Services Act. As a result, the division lowered the cost of generic drug prices from 35% to 20% of brand price over the last 2 years resulting in a drug cost savings exceeding governments’ public commitment of $110 million. This frees up significant funds to sustain the drug budget; ensure government and citizens are paying the lowest prices across Canada and can access the medications they need for improved health outcomes – a key priority of the Ministry of Health. This initiative has been very complex; has required extensive analysis of the supply chain; stakeholder consultation; policy and legal expertise; on-going clinical expertise and oversight; and careful planning and on-going management of issues/risks that have been encountered across the supply chain to achieve our goal.

Reimagining pharmaceutical innovation | Thomas Pogge at TEDxCanberra
By reforming harmful supranational regulations, Thomas Pogge is developing a complement to the patent system to stimulate pharmaceutical innovations that would be accessible, without delay, to poor and affluent patients alike around the world. In this talk at TEDxCanberra 2011, ANU and Yale academic and ethicist, Professor Thomas Pogge outlines an idea that could revolutionise health outcomes and distribution of pharmaceuticals in both the developed and developing world. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).

Title: Assessing the bioavailability and bioequivalence of topical dermatologic drug products with multiple surrogate tests 5th World Congress on Bioavailability and Bioequivalance Pharmaceutical R&D Summit September 29-October 01, 2014 Baltimore , USA OMICS International: http://conferenceseries.com/ Pharmaceutical Conferences: http://pharmaceuticalconferences.com Global OMICS open access Journals: http://omicsonline.org Global MedicaOl Conferences: http://conferenceseries.com Global Cancer Conferences: http://cancersummit.org Global Diabetes Conferences: http://diabetesexpo.com Global Dental Conferences: http://dentalcongress.com Global Nursing Conferences: http://nursingconference.com Abstract Progress in the development of surrogate methods to evaluate the bioavailability and bioequivalence of drugs applied to the skin has resulted in the generation of a sufficient body of data to justify their use as alternatives to clinical trials for the approval of generic topical drug products. They can also be used during the formulation development phase of both new and generic topicals to assess the relative bioavailability of various test formulations. A number of these (excised skin permeation assay, stratum corneum tape-stripping, microdialysis, transepidermal water loss) have been shown to successfully duplicate the results of clinical trials and demonstrate the bioequivalence of generic products approved by the FDA with an AB rating. Though each of these surrogate tests may not have been sufficiently validated to the satisfaction of regulatory authorities, and each can be criticized as potentially having significant shortcomings, they do not all have the same potential limitation and the results of one can effectively complement the results of another. Selected pairings of these surrogate methods, depending on the therapeutic product class in question, in conjunction with a membrane rate of release assay and irritation/sensitization testing, can offer a scientifically justified, efficient pathway to the approval of generic topical drug products. Biography Thomas J Franz received an MS in Biochemistry and an MD from the University of Oregon Medical School and completed a residency in Dermatology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He has worked in the fields of cutaneous pharmacology and toxicology for over 40 years, both within academia and the pharmaceutical industry, as well as at the Food and Drug Administration.

What is COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE? What does COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE mean? COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE meaning - COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE definition - COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Competitive advantage is a business concept that describes the attribute of allowing an organization to outperform its competitors. These attributes may include access to natural resources, such as high-grade ores or a low-cost power source, highly skilled labor, geographic location, high entry barriers, etc. Access to new technology can also be considered as an attribute of competitive advantage. Competitive advantage is the leverage that a business has over its competitors. This can be gained by offering clients better and greater value. Advertising products or services with lower prices or higher quality interests consumers. Target markets recognize these unique products or services. This is the reason behind brand loyalty, or why customers prefer one particular product or service over another. Value proposition is important when understanding competitive advantage. If the value proposition is effective it can produce a competitive advantage in either the product or service. The value proposition can increase customer expectations and choices. Michael Porter defined the two ways in which an organization can achieve competitive advantage over its rivals: cost advantage and differentiation advantage. Cost advantage is when a business provides the same products and services as its competitors, albeit at a lesser cost. Differentiation advantage is when a business provides better products and services as its competitors. In Porter's view, strategic management should be concerned with building and sustaining competitive advantage. Competitive advantage seeks to address some of the criticisms of comparative advantage. Competitive advantage rests on the notion that cheap labor is ubiquitous and natural resources are not necessary for a good economy. The other theory, comparative advantage, can lead countries to specialize in exporting primary goods and raw materials that trap countries in low-wage economies due to terms of trade. Competitive advantage attempts to correct this issue by stressing on maximizing scale economies in goods and services that garner premium prices (Stutz and Warf 2009). The term competitive advantage refers to the ability gained through attributes and resources to perform at a higher level than others in the same industry or market (Christensen and Fahey 1984, Kay 1994, Porter 1980 cited by Chacarbaghi and Lynch 1999, p. 45). The study of this advantage has attracted profound research interest due to contemporary issues regarding superior performance levels of firms in today's competitive market. "A firm is said to have a competitive advantage when it is implementing a value creating strategy not simultaneously being implemented by any current or potential player" (Barney 1991 cited by Clulow et al.2003, p. 221). Successfully implemented strategies will lift a firm to superior performance by facilitating the firm with competitive advantage to outperform current or potential players (Passemard and Calantone 2000, p. 18). To gain competitive advantage, a business strategy of a firm manipulates the various resources over which it has direct control and these resources have the ability to generate competitive advantage (Reed and Fillippi 1990 cited by Rijamampianina 2003, p. 362). Superior performance outcomes and superiority in production resources reflect competitive advantage (Day and Wesley 1988 cited by Lau 2002, p. 125). The quotes above signify competitive advantage as the ability to stay ahead of present or potential competition. Also, it provides the understanding that resources held by a firm and the business strategy will have a profound impact on generating competitive advantage. Powell (2001, p. 132) views business strategy as the tool that manipulates resources and creates competitive advantage, hence viable business strategy may not be adequate unless it possesses control over unique resources that have the ability to create such a unique advantage.

WTO TRIPS amendment: Kenya's Mohamed
The amendment to the TRIPS Agreement creates a permanent legal pathway for access to affordable medicines for developing and least-developed countries reliant on pharmaceutical imports. In this video statement Amina Mohamed, Kenya's Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs, says she is proud that African countries played a major role in bringing about this amendment, which is an important tool to access medicines. TRIPS is the WTO agreement dealing with trade-related intellectual property rights, including patents on medicines and other health technologies. The amendment entered into force on 23 January 2017, after two thirds of WTO members accepted the 2005 protocol amending the agreement. Learn more at wto.org/tripshealth -- Amina Mohammed’s Statement For any government, there is no greater priority than the health of its nation's people. As important as trade policy is, health and well-being must take precedence. WTO Members recognise this and have proven how seriously they take health issues by ratifying and putting into force an amendment to WTO rules which will facilitate access to essential medicines in low income countries. Efforts to amend WTO's Trade and Intellectual Property Agreement were driven by public health considerations and by a desire to find the best way to use the rules of the global trading system to assist those in developing countries who are seriously ill. This is the first ever amendment to WTO agreements and now that two-thirds of the members of WTO have ratified it, it will come into force. It has been a long time coming. The concerns held by developing countries were based on their need to ensure adequate flexibility to obtain affordable medicines. Protection of patents is important. It helps to foster creativity and innovation. But health care is paramount. In 2001, WTO Members struck a deal which clarified the accords and provided governments in the developing world with greater clarity and certainty. But one more element was needed – how to guarantee that countries lacking the capacity to produce generic drugs could still procure them affordably? In 2003, WTO Members agreed that if the importing country could not negotiate the acquisition of patented medicines at affordable prices these medicines could be produced under licence by drug makers in third countries. This was a major step and I am proud to say that African countries played a major role in bringing about this agreement. I was Kenya's ambassador to the WTO in those years and chaired several important WTO bodies including the General Council. I saw what it took to gain agreement and I have seen how well the agreement can work. It has taken some time to implement this agreement. But now that it is in place, developing country governments have an important tool for obtaining affordable medicines. I urge governments to incorporate these new rules into their health policies nationally and internationally so that the benefits of this amendment can be secured by governments and the people they represent.

What is Cloud Computing?  | Made in Germany
https://www.global.de/en/cloud/iaas/ In case you’re on the fence about whether to take your apps to the cloud, let’s put it this way: - Would you drill a well because you want water? - Would you build a power plant because you want electricity? - Would you buy a cow because you want milk? Of course not! There are skilled experts out there already, taking care of your water, your power, and…well…your cows – especially here in Bavaria, the home of our ultra-secure data centers. The same goes for your IT – By using the Global Access cloud, you work with the experts to build, maintain and run your IT infrastructure and apps, giving you precious time to focus on your business. This is called infrastructure as a service – IaaS. It lets any old laptop, tablet or even smartphone transform into a supercomputer with unlimited storage and computing capacity. You only pay for what you need when you need it, and your infrastructure scales up automatically as your business grows. So with basics out of the way, let’s talk about the specs of the Global Access Cloud – developed over 20 years into the most customizable and secure cloud on the market. First off, we’re 100% German – which means we have the highest data security standards, and we’re untouchable by the NSA, the Patriot Act or the Freedom Act. These are bragging rights that NO other major cloud provider has. And even if you don’t care so much about security, I bet your customers do. We run everything on A-Brands in hardware and software – VMware, EMC, HP, Brocade, Cisco, Fortigate, DataCore, Veeam, Extreme Networks, Fusion IO, TrendMicro, Microsfot…(phee) – you get the point – it’s all the best stuff! You can design and manage all these top-quality virtual components just as you would with physical ones: book, configure and manage any combination of RAM, CPU, and disk space along with networking & security options. And we help you through the whole process of building and running your apps. And by “help”, I don’t mean you fill out an anonymous form that triggers some generic email telling you to read an FAQ. You get a dedicated technical support professional, who works with you as long as they’re at Global Access – which is basically forever. (We like it here.) Your IaaS is stored in our two data centers in Munich, where you can opt to have synchronous co-location storage for the highest availability possible. That means that everything is stored twice – automatically and instantaneously. If there’s a failure at one location, your apps can keep on computing from the other, and your customers are always connected. Then at the end of the month, you only pay for what you use with no surprise fees. We call this hybrid billing – check it out on our website. To wrap up, your IT infrastructure is at its best when it’s invisible, when it; - has the highest availability - requires minimal management - poses no security risks - and scales up with your evolving business needs That’s what you get with the Global Cloud. https://www.global.de/en/cloud/iaas/

today on various dimensions in the Indian pharmaceutical sector. Firstly, the issue is on intellectual property. The second issue that we will deliberate on quality issues on medicines coming out from Indian pharmaceutical sector. The third issue that we would like to touch on about events that are happening today in the sector relates to innovation and entrepreneurship. So, let me try to go through each of these three issues one by one. What about intellectual property? Well, the Indian pharmaceutical industry has evoked very empathetic reactions from all around the world for over more than two decades supplying generic medicines globally and thereby helping nations to reduce the cost of medicines and the importance of medicinal costs in the overall healthcare budgets of countries. If you look at the export orientation of Indian pharmaceutical sector, you will see that they go to more than 200 countries in terms of exporting medicines. They sell all kinds of products starting from depression pills to hypertension drugs and they also focus on diseases of the rich as well as of the poor. But, that being said, they also raise some thorny issues, and the key thorny issue that they raise is related to this debate on access versus innovation. The global biopharmaceutical industry, especially the innovator-originator firms like the Pfizers and the Eli Lillys and the GlaxoSmithKlines will argue, if you talk to them, that the Indian pharmaceutical industry is a pirate. It basically reverse engineers drugs, free rides on intellectual property generated by them, and sell generic medicines at low prices, not just domestically in India, but globally around the world. The Indian pharmaceutical industry will then argue back saying that, "Hey, originator, maybe you don't deserve to have that kind of price of the drug, even if you have innovated on that drug.” Now, this is raising a key issue in the economics of innovation which is that, do you need stronger intellectual property for incentivizing innovation? And if you look at research on this story, yes, you do need incentives for innovation to incentivize the inventor. If you don't have stronger intellectual property, the inventor will never come up with the science and innovation to come up with the new drug and that is what the argument, the global biopharmaceutical firms are arguing with. That being said, it is also true that monopoly pricing, if you give intellectual property, you entail that there is some monopoly pricing that is offered to the originator-innovator firms will ensure that pharmaceutical prices will remain out of the access of the larger citizenry. Now, is that fair? Well, that's exactly where the discussion and debate starts related to intellectual property in Indian pharmaceuticals. It is probably not completely fair, neither is it completely unfair. The truth lies somewhere in between. At one end it is true that you cannot free ride on somebody's intellectual property but at the other end, you cannot always give the excuse of free riding or access and affordability to continually do reverse engineering, especially when you have done reverse engineering for over three to four decades. So, you need to have a nuanced view on the debate related to intellectual property. One of the key pharmaceutical firms who started this discussion on intellectual property in Indian pharmaceutical industry was Cipla, when it came up with this three drug combination in HIV drugs that was being sold at around 200 dollars, which is like 1 by 50th of the originated drug that was being sold at 10,000 dollars. And that created a huge global ripple with that kind of a disruption effect. Now, over time there are several other companies like Dr. Reddy's, Ranbaxy’s, and others which you might not know who have come out with the capabilities that are required to reverse engineer drugs. That being said, they are also having a leg in terms of explorative discovery capabilities. Have they performed well on that? Not really. If you look at Dr. Reddy's product called balaglitazone which was originated around the mid-1990s, what essentially happened was Dr. Reddy's didn’t have the wherewithal to take it all the way to launch the drug in the market and therefore it had out-license balaglitazone to a Danish company called Novo Nordisk. And, therefore, the broader story that comes out of Indian pharmaceutical industry is that they continue to do generics, they continue to reverse engineer, and they continue to hope that disruption will actually help them give a leg up in this product debate around access versus innovation.

"Intellectual Property" Kills
Intro/Outro by Jeff Riggenbach Written by Kevin Carson Read by Mike Godzina Edited by Nick Ford Online article: http://c4ss.org/content/37132 Excerpt: "The Obama administration is pushing — hard! — global “intellectual property” rules that would make all these problems even worse. The Trans-Pacific Partnership, the main driving force of which is American corporate copyright and patent owners acting through their stooge (aka the US Trade Representative) would strengthen international drug patent laws to US standards — thereby enabling “evergreening” and “me, too” drugs so that many patents would in effect never expire. They would also illegalize many life-saving generic drugs currently available in developing countries under their local laws. The key agenda at the center of all the so-called “free trade agreements” is the imposition, at the behest of the giant corporations that depend on “intellectual property” monopolies for their profits, of a form of protectionism far more coercive and harmful than tariffs ever dreamed of being. “Intellectual property” serves the same function that tariffs did a century ago; only now that corporations are global rather than national, the protectionist barriers are erected at corporate boundaries rather than national ones. But in either case, the protectionism involves a monopoly on the right to sell certain goods within certain market areas." Bitcoin tips welcome: 1N1pF6fLKAGg4nH7XuqYQbKYXNxCnHBWLB

Scales of Measurement - Nominal, Ordinal, Interval, Ratio (Part 1) - Introductory Statistics
This video reviews the scales of measurement covered in introductory statistics: nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio (Part 1 of 2). Scales of Measurement Nominal, Ordinal, Interval, Ratio YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/statisticsinstructor Subscribe today! Lifetime access to SPSS videos: http://tinyurl.com/m2532td Video Transcript: In this video we'll take a look at what are known as the scales of measurement. OK first of all measurement can be defined as the process of applying numbers to objects according to a set of rules. So when we measure something we apply numbers or we give numbers to something and this something is just generically an object or objects so we're assigning numbers to some thing or things and when we do that we follow some sort of rules. Now in terms of introductory statistics textbooks there are four scales of measurement nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio. We'll take a look at each of these in turn and take a look at some examples as well, as the examples really help to differentiate between these four scales. First we'll take a look at nominal. Now in a nominal scale of measurement we assign numbers to objects where the different numbers indicate different objects. The numbers have no real meaning other than differentiating between objects. So as an example a very common variable in statistical analyses is gender where in this example all males get a 1 and all females get a 2. Now the reason why this is nominal is because we could have just as easily assigned females a 1 and males a 2 or we could have assigned females 500 and males 650. It doesn't matter what number we come up with as long as all males get the same number, 1 in this example, and all females get the same number, 2. It doesn't mean that because females have a higher number that they're better than males or males are worse than females or vice versa or anything like that. All it does is it differentiates between our two groups. And that's a classic nominal example. Another one is baseball uniform numbers. Now the number that a player has on their uniform in baseball it provides no insight into the player's position or anything like that it just simply differentiates between players. So if someone has the number 23 on their back and someone has the number 25 it doesn't mean that the person who has 25 is better, has a higher average, hits more home runs, or anything like that it just means they're not the same playeras number 23. So in this example its nominal once again because the number just simply differentiates between objects. Now just as a side note in all sports it's not the same like in football for example different sequences of numbers typically go towards different positions. Like linebackers will have numbers that are different than quarterbacks and so forth but that's not the case in baseball. So in baseball whatever the number is it provides typically no insight into what position he plays. OK next we have ordinal and for ordinal we assign numbers to objects just like nominal but here the numbers also have meaningful order. So for example the place someone finishes in a race first, second, third, and so on. If we know the place that they finished we know how they did relative to others. So for example the first place person did better than second, second did better than third, and so on of course right that's obvious but that number that they're assigned one, two, or three indicates how they finished in a race so it indicates order and same thing with the place finished in an election first, second, third, fourth we know exactly how they did in relation to the others the person who finished in third place did better than someone who finished in fifth let's say if there are that many people, first did better than third and so on. So the number for ordinal once again indicates placement or order so we can rank people with ordinal data. OK next we have interval. In interval numbers have order just like ordinal so you can see here how these scales of measurement build on one another but in addition to ordinal, interval also has equal intervals between adjacent categories and I'll show you what I mean here with an example. So if we take temperature in degrees Fahrenheit the difference between 78 degrees and 79 degrees or that one degree difference is the same as the difference between 45 degrees and 46 degrees. One degree difference once again. So anywhere along that scale up and down the Fahrenheit scale that one degree difference means the same thing all up and down that scale. OK so if we take eight degrees versus nine degrees the difference there is one degree once again. That's a classic interval scale right there with those differences are meaningful and we'll contrast this with ordinal in just a few moments but finally before we do let's take a look at ratio.

David Bowman, "Alternative Reference Rates: SOFR, LIBOR, and Issues for Transitions"
The choice of new benchmark interest rate should be of special importance to practitioners as well as academics that study law and economics. As new alternative rates are being considered in the United States, this half day conference, co-sponsored by the University of Chicago Law School, brought together leading academics, as well as representatives from banks, law firms, swap dealers, regulators and others to share their views on design and implementation of new indexes in loan documents, swap agreements and other financial contracts. Dr. David Bowman, Special Adviser to the Board, Federal Reserve Board, delivers the keynote for the conference "Transition to New Interest Rate Benchmarks: SOFR, Ameribor and Beyond" on April 3, 2018. Introductory remarks by: Dr. Richard L. Sandor, CEO, American Financial Exchange and Aaron Director Lecturer in Law and Economics, University of Chicago Law School Robert S. Rivkin, Deputy Mayor of the City of Chicago Thomas J. Miles, Dean and Clifton R. Musser Professor of Law and Economics, University of Chicago Law School
Top 5 Pinterest Marketing Tips To Grow Your Business
When marketing on Pinterest, the first tip is putting effort into the pins you publish. You see, most users treat Pinterest as an online catalogue for their products and therefore never get to fully experience the power of Pinterest. Your pins should be unique and original as this is what Pinterest users are really after and it is what they repin. So for example, if you are a dog training expert, instead of just displaying pictures of dogs like most people do, you can stand out from the noise by publishing original images of dogs or pictures of dogs with unusual behavior. Other elements to add on pins for effective Pinterest marketing is adding keyword rich descriptions and calls to action. A keyword rich description will help your pin rank higher in the search results for your main keywords and adding a call to action will redirect people to your sales funnel. For example, should you wish to drive traffic from Pinterest to your dog training website and should you wish to rank for the keywords “dog training” and “dog behavior problems”, you could publish a pin of a dog chewing furniture and add the description “Dog training is key if you want to protect your belongings and eliminate for good any dog behavior problems you experience. To find out more about dog training and dog behavior problems, click here LINK”. Then, also add the url of your website so when people click on the pin, it takes them there automatically. To add any url to a pin, first publish the pin and then click on the pin you wish to add a link to. Then click on edit, add the link and click on save. Pins that also perform very well in terms of creating engagement and generating traffic are infographics. To create infographics easily, you can either hire a graphic designer or you can use Pinterest tools such as piktochart. When using Pinterest for marketing, the second tip is setting up a Pinterest contest. Pinterest contests generate a lot of engagement and followers and also help you build a mailing list which then result in sales. Pinterest contests are also a subtle way to advertise your products. To create a Pinterest contest, first decide on the prize. The prize has to be appealing and relevant to your target audience. That way, you know that anyone who enters the contest is actually interested in your products, making them a perfect prospect. Avoid giving generic prizes such as an ipad or money, as you’ll start attracting random contestants who are just interested in the prize and no intention of ever buying anything from you. Once you’ve decided on the prize, decide on the entry rules. You want the rules to be as easy to follow as possible to make sure the barriers to entry are not too high. Your rules could simply ask people to follow you on Pinterest and enter their contact details on a special page you set up for the contest. Then, create the pin for your contest, making sure it is visually appealing, includes the prize and the value of the prize and includes the rules. You can use Pinterest tools such as woobox.com to help you create and launch Pinterest contests. The third tip when using Pinterest for marketing is setting up Pinterest ads. Advertising on Pinterest can really put your efforts on steroids. To create Pinterest ads, simply go to ads.pinterest.com, then set your location and currency, and follow the prompts. Then, choose the goal of your Pinterest ads campaign. It can either be to build brand awareness, increase your engagement rate with your pins, or generate traffic to your website. Once you’ve selected the goal of your campaign, name your campaign, decide on your daily budget, and pick the pin you wish to advertise and define the audience you want to advertise your pin to. The fourth tip when using Pinterest for marketing is checking analytics to track your performance. To access analytics, simply go to analytics.pinterest.com. When you do, Pinterest will display information such as how many views your Pins get, which pins performed the best, your most popular boards, etc… You can also use Pinterest tools such as buffer.com to monitor your statistics. By looking at this information, you’ll be able to fine tune your Pinterest marketing efforts accordingly, eliminate what is not performing and put more time and effort into what brings you the best results. The fifth tip when using Pinterest is consistently working towards growing your followers. The more followers you have, the more engagement you’ll experience, and therefore the more traffic and sales you’ll benefit from. To increase your followers, not only publish quality pins regularly as mentioned previously, but also follow people daily so they follow you back.

Iain Cockburn: Diffusion of New Drugs in the Post-TRIPs Era
Strategy and Innovation Diffusion of New Drugs in the Post-TRIPs Era Authors: Ernst Berndt, Nathan Blalock and Iain Cockburn We examine the international diffusion of new drugs under the post-TRIPS intellectual property rights regime. Even after controlling for drug characteristics and variation in national health expenditure, we find substantial differences across countries in the probability of a drug being commercially available, lowest in countries such as Brazil, China and India with historically weak patent protection. Notwithstanding obligations now in force under the TRIPS Agreement to provide patent protection for pharmaceutical products, sellers of new drugs are much less likely to have market exclusivity in these countries. Conditional upon being launched, a drug is five to 25 times more likely to be generic/multisource in these countries than in, for example, Spain.

How to Get a Trademark for My Logo and Brand Name - Entertainment Law Asked & Answered
A web visitor wrote in: I have created a Logo with a generic phrase for my apparel company, with a design that indicates just what it means by utilizing a letter as part of the graphic. I would like to use this both nationally and internationally as soon as make sure that I secure the trademark for it how do I go about getting the trademark registered? He goes on to ask me to Suggest the proper or best business structure to maximize profit, minimize liability and protect my assets from taxes and judgements, so he will have the most latitude to operate his business on a global scale with minimal risks. Well, this is a great, and complex question. First off, a trademark is... A distinctive word, symbol, or phrase that's affixed to goods or services in commerce as an indicator to identify their source or origin. Trademarks are Brands... Just like the brands that used to be burned into the hides of cattle to identify the ranch they came from. You acquire trademark rights by actually using the mark in interstate commerce to sell goods or services. Trademarks protect only against others using the same or confusingly similar marks in the same class of goods and services. So, if you have a trademark for a particular brand of medical device, you probably can't prevent the same mark being used for a line of shoes, or as a title for a TV series... Now, because we are talking about what the person describes as a "generic phrase" it's probably not distinctive enough for trademark registration just by itself. But, the inclusion of a stylized letter and distinctive design might make it registrable as a logo design. Now, the process isn't that hard. Nowadays, we do the applications online, and it's a step by step process. But it can be tricky because how you complete the application can have a big impact on whether or not the application gets approved. You might, for example, need to disclaim certain aspects of the mark, like the generic phrase in our readers’ situation. Or, selecting the right kinds of specimens of use to ensure maximum coverage and protection. It's also possible to go too narrow or too broad in the description of goods and services and risk being underwrote the, or possibly losing your mark later if you're discovers to have overstated the scope of your use of the mark. The best way to ensure your trademark gets registered, and you get all the benefits and protections, is to have a lawyer prepare the application for you. Those of us who do this a lot have learned about all the problem areas, and have a handle on the best practices to get things done right. My experience is that folks who do it themselves have their applications rejected more often, and then, unfortunately have to hire me to fix the problems they encounter. That usually costs as much or more than they'd have paid me to do the registration in the first place. Your trademarks, your brands, may someday be the most valuable assets your business owns. So, it makes sense to invest a little bit now to protect them, when doing so is relatively easy. Rather than paying a lot to clean up messes later. --- So, what's the proper or best business structure to maximize profit, minimize liability and protect assets from taxes and judgements? Well, there are several kinds of legal structures that can help on this. The most common, and most established is the corporation, which provides insulation from liability for shareholders. But corporations come with some administrative hoops you need to jump through, and they have to pay taxes separately, so income can sometimes be taxed twice. Sub chapter S corporations are for small, closely held companies, like family owned enterprises, and similar, where there are a small handful of shareholders... These corporations can be taxed like a partnership, where profits pass through directly to shareholders, so that double taxation doesn't happen. But these corporations also have the administrative hoops I mentioned before. An LLC offers most of the advantages of corporations, but can be taxed as a pass through entity, and don't have the same administrative hoops, but they’re not as well established forms of entities, and can have other tricky aspects. The bottom line is, I just can't give a general answer here. Every business is different, so you need to consult with an experienced business attorney (like me) who can help evaluate the situation and advise you accordingly. Getting this stuff right is important, and it's always best to handle these things as you're starting up, so you don't wind up having to backtrack, or unwind transactions later on when your structure changes. Invest a bit now, so you don't overspend on fixes later. And that’s going to do it for this video… If you have a question you'd like to see here on Asked and Answered, just visit http://firemark.com/questions and let me know. See you next time!

the Indian pharmaceutical industry has been strongly supported by government of India. India signed the Trade Related Intellectual Property Argument in 1995 saying that country will implement a stronger product patent recognizing regime from 2005. From 1970 to 2005, there was actually a regime in the country that only recognized process patents, gave shorter patent life-term, which basically engendered the formation of these reverse-engineering skills of the Ciplas and the Reddys that I was just talking about. Since 2005, India has become TRIPS and product patent compliant like all other developed economies, but there is a particular provision that continues to raise debates. This particular provision is called the article 3D. Article 3D is about whether you are going to be allowed a patent if you are doing incremental innovation. If you have a drug like Imatinib Mesylate which is Novartis's active ingredient for the drug called Gleevec, and Imatinib Mesylate turns out to be just an incremental innovation of some original drug, the Indian new patent laws wouldn't allow Novartis the patent for that particular drug invoking the provisions of article 3D. And this became a huge debate in about three years back when Gleevec after like a protracted legal battle with the Indian government didn't get patent on this particular product and global stakeholder started raising a hue and cry that the government was actually not respecting product patents. They might have signed it, they might have implemented it but using the 3D provision, they were basically trying to retain that older regime of process-patents but that might not be true. There are several recent examples where the courts of India have actually allowed product patent respecting drug from a western pharmaceutical firm to be sold and barring the generic version of the drugs to be sold in the country. One case in point, very recently over the last few weeks, has been that of Sitagliptin, which basically is a drug from Merck, under the brand name Januvia. It is a new advanced-generation, oral anti-diabetic drug and it got an injunction from the Supreme Court of India which barred Indian pharmaceutical firm Glenmark in terms of selling the generic version of the drug. So, broadly speaking this tussle between access versus innovation continues. 3D continues to be invoked by either the government and the regulator in terms of not granting patents or being stringent about granting patents to originator firms. The Indian generic industry continues to heavily rely on sales from generic medicines, both domestically and exports, to generate the returns that it requires to deliver to its shareholders. But at the same time you start wondering if there is a middle ground that can be struck. There are a few middle grounds that global economists and scholars in this area have suggested. Let me just deliberate on them one by one. First, the global originator firms have backtracked a bit. They have started discussing that maybe we shouldn't sell drugs at the monopoly prices that are afforded to us given the intellectual property rights. Maybe we should sell it at differentially priced levels which is some fraction of the levels at which these drugs are being sold in developed countries. Januvia, the example I mentioned, is one such case. Second, Indian pharmaceutical firms themselves are becoming a little more conscious, especially those at the frontier in not infringing patents of alternative firms. In fact, they themselves are getting into the innovation space and are filing patents for drugs that they are discovering. The old history of not being able to take Balaglitazone to success that we saw with Dr. Reddy's probably is getting slowly changed. You have lipaglyn from Zydus Cadila in Ahmedabad, which has been filed with a new chemical entity in the U.S. FDA. You have Latanoprost from Sun Pharmaceuticals and its research company Sun Pharmaceuticals Advanced Research Center that recently got a complete request from the U.S. food and drug administration. And you have ALZUMAb a psoriasis drug from Biocon who has also filed a new patent for this particular therapeutic market. So, for verdict is still not out in terms of what will happen, there are some middle grounds that are being struck in terms of firm responses and reactions. The other aspect here that regulators are contemplating on is perhaps there could be alternative mechanisms to incentivize innovation other than intellectual property and here you could try to run into classifying therapeutic market and diseases of the world under the broader rich versus poor diseases or the shivering and the shimmering kind of diseases. So, Yale economist Thomas Pogge argues that maybe you can create something called the Health Impact Fund that incentivizes innovation in those particular disease markets where there is a need for rapid innovation and where there is a need to protect that innovation through intellectual property.

Linux Downfall Parody
Der Fuhrer tries to replace Windows with Linux, but encounters difficulties! I'm sure every Linux user has encountered these problems themselves, at one point or another. (For what it's worth, I personally did get my printer to work - but not before getting VERY frustrated.) This video is a parody of both Linux and movie "The Downfall" starring Bruno Ganz. The movie is EXCELLENT, and I HIGHLY recommend that you watch it. It is chilling and yet made in a manner respectful of the extremely sensitive nature of the topic. This parody is made under Title 17, U.S.C., Section 107. This is intended to fall under FAIR USE for parody purposes. I am in no way benefiting from the publishing of this video. Hey, if I was, I would post a link to my Linux advice web site! Besides, do you know how hard it was to write jokes that matched up with the audio? Labor of love - clearly not for profit. Enjoy the rage - *har har* A little historical context: Before Microsoft went all-in with a publicity campaign, Windows was WIDELY perceived as being a necessary evil. It was difficult to use, frustrating when it wasn't working, slow when it WAS working, challenging to configure, full of security weaknesses that allowed viruses to damage computers, and constantly changing so that software that worked on a previous version ceased to function using a newer version - not to mention EXPENSIVE. Unfortunately, Windows was the ONLY option available to the vast majority of computer users. Many software creators decided to collaborate and make a FREE operating system, with the hopes of improving upon Windows and maybe even replacing it. Glossary: Linux - an operating system for computers, that is available for free Windows - an operating system for computers, that must be purchased. Fedora - one of the many varieties of Linux. Free. Based on Red-Hat linux, which is a commercial product. Ubuntu, Debian, Gentoo, CentOS - other free varieties of Linux. distribution - installation files for Linux. quad-core / six-core - a reference to the processing power of the computer. Most computers have two cores, so six-core machines are considered high-end (as of November 2010.) driver - the software that tells the computer how to talk to a printer. Each printer model works best when using its own specific driver, although there is such a thing as a generic printer driver (namely, PCL.) CUPS - an acronym for Common Unix Printing System. auto-detect - a concept, meaning that the computer should automatically detect any printers connected to it (either USB or on a network) and then automatically learn to talk to it, without user intervention. ROOT access - Linux prevents mistakes by only allowing a user to re-configure the computer if they are logged in using a special user name called "ROOT". sarsaparilla - a primary flavoring ingredient of root beer, along with sassafras. Pronounced "sas-par-il-la." sudoku - a simple game, available in a computerized version. OpenOffice - free software for common office tasks such as word processing, spreadsheets and presentations. Intended to compete with Microsoft Office, a similar product. emoticons - ideograms intended to convey emotion. Emoticons are written with common typewriter characters. For example, a smiley face :) SETI - acronym for Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. A global effort looking for intelligent life on other planets, by studying radio waves in space. SETI@HOME - a part of SETI that allows home users to contribute by processing radio signals on their home computers. BOINC - acronym for Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. BOINC is software that lets you connect to super-computer projects like SETI@HOME, LHC@HOME and Rosetta (protein folding computation.) VegaStrike - a free space flight simulator. plug-and-play - see "auto-detect." the Linux penguin - Linux has a mascot. That mascot is a penguin. Why a penguin? Because, like Linux, penguins are coooooool. My two cents worth. DOS - the predecessor to Windows, from like 1985. Also made by Microsoft.

6. OpenSCI 2012 -- Session 3, Rachel Cohen (Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative)
"Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative: New Hope for Forgotten Patients" - Opening Scientific Collaboration for Innovation in Global Health (OpenSCI) 2012: A conference sponsored by the Program on Global Health and Technology Access and the 2012 class of graduate seminar PubPol 213S: "Designing Innovation for Global Health" Rachel Cohen, the North American Regional Executive Director for the Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi), discussed DNDi's model to develop affordable medicines for diseases endemic to developing countries. Over the past quarter of a century, less than 2 percent of all drugs developed have been medicines to treat neglected tropical diseases, tuberculosis, and malaria, despite their significant burden of disease. As most of those afflicted with neglected diseases do not constitute a paying market, their health needs are not prioritized by industry. It is for this reason that the DNDi product development partnership was created, consisting of several research institutions from the Global South, Doctors Without Borders, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, among others. Since 2007, DNDi's collaborative efforts has led to the development of 6 non-patented, easy-to-use, and affordable treatments for malaria, human African trypanosomiasis, and visceral leishmaniasis. Moreover, DNDi has successfully developed these treatments as public goods at a fraction of the R&D cost figures often associated with traditional drug R&D models
