Jack Ma, the billionaire founder of Alibaba — the Chinese company that surpassed Wal-Mart as the world’s largest retailer in 2016 — said the United States wasted $14 trillion dollars wasted on warfare in the last 30 years, money that should have been spent on domestic infrastructure and programs for the people instead. During an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin asked Ma about his thoughts on the American economy and how it relates to China. President Trump’s stance has been anti-Chinaaccusing the Asian superpower of siphoning U.S. jobs — but the Chinese billionaire begged to differ. “It’s not that other countries steal jobs from you guys. It’s your strategy. Distribute the money and things in a proper way,” Ma said, adding, “You’re supposed to spend money on your own people.” Antimedia report: On the issue of military spending, the Chinese billionaire claimed the U.

.. the fraud would have been easily detected." The scandal made global headlines in 2011, the year after doctors first noticed abnormally high rupture rates in the implants. Some 300,000 women in 65 countries, most in Latin America, are believed to have received the faulty implants. PIP's founder, Jean-Claude Mas, was convicted of fraud and sentenced to four years in jail in 2013, confirmed on appeal in 2016. Toxicity ruled out Mas was ordered to pay a fine of €75,000 and was banned from working in the health sector or running a business. He is appealing that ruling to a court of cassation. Two other pending legal cases are pending against Mas, one for involuntary manslaughter – the implants were suspected in several deaths from systemic toxicity – and another linked to the financial implications of the scandal. He always denied the implants posed any health risks.

The Medical Council of India (MCI) prohibits pharmaceutical companies from offering incentives and freebies to doctors. But the flyer (of which TOI has a digital copy) offering a `Sankranti bonanza' was distributed at the annual conference of paediatricians. “It mentions that doctors ordering 100TCV (vaccine against typhoid) plus 100ROTA (vaccine against rota virus) can choose between a `digital baby weighing machine' or `ttmann stethoscope Class III' as free gifts,“ said a doctor attending the 54th PEDICON conference. For a free gold coin, doctors have to order 150 each of both vaccines. A similar incident occurred at PEDICON 2016 as well, but then the flyer had the logo of the Hyderabad-based company Bharat Biotech. The old flyer offered doctors a pearl set for placing orders of 50 vaccines each of typhoid and rota, and an iPhone 5s for orders of 200 vaccines each.

A virus rarely seen in the United States recently infected eight people in Wisconsin and Illinois who were working in facilities where pet rats are bred, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Both breeders tested positive for Seoul virus, which is part of the Hantavirus family, a group of viruses that typically infect rodents, the CDC said. Health officials then discovered that the Wisconsin ...

“The Baghdad Operations Command is unconstitutional,” al-Bayyat said in an official statement, that called upon the Iraqi government to rethink the capital’s security and “to involve the Shiite Muslim volunteer militias more in protecting Baghdad”. This is not the first of these kinds of criticisms and doubtless it will not be the last time the two forces clash. In September 2016, there was even a physical clash. Shiite Muslim militias fought a battle against the local police in the Zafaraniyah area. The militiasaim was to arrest police who were supposedly helping the Islamic State group, even though the local police denied this. In November 2016, the Iraqi Parliament passed a law regarding the volunteer militias that had formed after the beginning of the security crisis in mid-2014. The militias were formed by volunteers who offered to fight the IS group and to protect their homes, in the face of the Iraqi army’s weakness.
