MUMBAI: Data on US FDA inspections in past 8 years and warning letters (WL) issued and their resolutions in recent years paints a disturbing picture, says a recent Edelweiss report. Since the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments (GDUFA’s) implementation in Oct 2012, FDA inspections have doubled in India and China (20% versus 11% of total inspections earlier), which led to considerable increase in issuance of WLs (55% versus 33% of total earlier). WL resolutions have become longer and rarer - only 9 out of 108 WLs have been sorted out taking an average of ~500 days. Data for India and China is even bleaker with just one resolution out of the 64 WLs issued in past 52 months. Cadila Healthcare’s Moraiya unit (474 days) looks poised to be resolved soon post its recent re-audit that had no FDA observations. While data suggests that Sun Pharma’s Halol unit (454 days) and Dr Reddy’s (349 days) are closer to resolution timeframe, the concern is that the WLs are not easy to resolve.

Mr Pring's killer was never caught, and, nine years on, his widow is locked in a battle over her dead husband's estate. Now his family's MP wants the Prime Minister to intervene, urged the Ukrainian authorities to restart their failed investigation, or even let British police help. I have the feeling, and it's only a feeling, that there is somebody within the Ukrainian authorities, police or government that could well be protecting Barry's wife.

“You see the ladies were moving away with their hands like this, towards the bathroom, towards the wash room. So she knew very well that it is toxic and she needs to wash her hands,” said Bakar. The Malaysian police chief said the alleged assailants knew they were not involved in a comedy skit but were part of a hit squad that practiced for this type of attack on two previous occasions. “From our investigation we now know that they have made a few exercises to do that,” said Bakar. North Korean denials Security has been increased at the hospital where the victim’s body is being held because Malaysian police said someone had tried to break into the site earlier but would not elaborate on the identities or motives of those involved in the break-in. The North Korean embassy has so far refused to cooperate, even to help confirm, with DNA samples and dental records, that the deceased was indeed the estranged half brother of the North Korean leader.

Money Transfers The JPMorgan matter differed in an important way: Clearstream’s lawyers argued that money was never wired from the U.S. to Clearstream’s Luxembourg offices. Instead, once JPMorgan received payments on the bonds owned by Iran, Clearstream bankers made a bookkeeping entry on their side of the Atlantic. Thus, Clearstream’s lawyers argued, even though the company may have provided a service to the Iranians in these transactions, the fact that money was never wired from New York to an account held by Bank Markazi meant that the Marine families had no legal claim to the $1.67 billion. In February 2015, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest ruled in favor of Clearstream and dismissed the family’s claims. The case is under appeal. Sanctions Cases Bharara’s office has actively pursued Iran sanctions cases. In 2013, the office won a court judgment enabling it to seize a Manhattan office building, at 650 Fifth Avenue, owned by Iran, and sell it, with some of the proceeds going to victims of terrorist attacks sponsored by Tehran.

Enter the Zotac Zbox Magnus EN1080, a ventilated black cube that packs a fully watercooled Skylake Intel Core i7-6700 processor (note the lack of the unlocked "K" designation) and Nvidia GTX 1080 inside a case just 225mm wide and 203mm deep. Such powerful hardware means the EN1080 is capable of playing games at a native 4K resolution with near maximum settings at over 60FPS. Even better, thanks to the clever watercooling setup inside, it does so while remaining quieter than any console or desktop PC with a standard cooling setup. It's seriously impressive stuff. Naturally, there's a price to pay for such a setup—and it's not cheap. A barebones EN1080—where you supply your own storage, memory, and operating systemcosts around £2,000 / $2,000 . A more conventional desktop system with the same components plus storage, RAM, OS, and a decent all-on-one liquid cooler comes in at under £1500. Read 18 remaining paragraphs | Comments

The US Space Agency is about to reveal details of their new findings. The Agency has scheduled a press conference where scientists will present new findings revealing a ‘discovery beyond our solar system’. According to NASA , the secretive event, will ‘present new findings on planets that orbit stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets’. While no one is still sure what exactly NASA will talk about, many argue that the space agency could reveal details of exoplanets capable of hosting life, or that astronomers have even discovered Earth’s clone . The event is scheduled to take place on February 22, at 1pm New York Time. The announcement will also be streamed live on NASA’s television station and their website.

After a brief intermission, during which Lee led the Chinese God of Prosperity to ­distribute mandarin oranges (that night being Chap Goh Meh, the last day of the Chinese New Year festivities), the show resumed with Atherton, who surprised the audience with his ­proficiency in regional dialects. He rattled off punchlines – and a­lmost entire jokes – in Malay, Mandarin, and Hokkien, among others. He then told a hilarious story about how he used his wits to get out of speeding tickets, and even talked about how he and his ex-wife went to a feng shui expert to help improve their marriage (“He said we just needed to move the couch. I thought what a wonderful idea, and so I blocked the front door with it so my ex-wife couldnt get back in the house”). Atherton also took swipes at people across both sides of the causeway, using his observations from his many years of living and working in the region.

Nobody who has returned in the announcement today will actually pose a threat to the security of the British people. The suicide bomber was even paid £1m compensation for being detained in Guantanamo jail. Politicians are now demanding to know why the Labour Government was convinced of his innocence and why wasn't he monitored.

“We know that kids readily form in-group biases,” said Skinner. For example, if you take a group of kids and put half in the green group and half in the red group, kids will prefer members of their color group “even if it’s an entirely made-up thing in the lab.” Knowing this propensity to favor one’s “in-group” and knowing that children absorb nonverbal cues from adults as they try to understand other groups they encounter the question becomes: What are the messages we are communicating about people from different religious, racial or ethnic backgrounds? As the study notes, many preschoolers in the United States live in fairly homogeneous communities, limiting their exposure to different groups and their “opportunities to observe positive nonverbal signals demonstrated toward such people.” Because of this, even brief exposure to “biased nonverbal signals against one or two out-group members could result in generalized bias against that group.

To be sure, the country attracts plenty of foreign travelers -- about 18 million last year, the most in the Arab world. But they’re almost all Muslim pilgrims visiting Mecca. Regular tourism barely exists. And there are so many obstacles that a Saudi Arabia full of holidaymakers is as hard to envisage as a Saudi Arabia that’s no longer hooked on fossil fuels. Saudi Arabia doesnt even issue tourist visas. Its alcohol ban, strict dress code and curbs on gender mixing are red flags for many people who’d be happy to visit Dubai’s beaches or Egypt’s pyramids. Then there are the secret police, who often keep a close watch on foreign visitors, and the religious police, who chastise people for moral violations. Even many Saudis prefer to vacation in Dubai, where they can wear what they want and go to nightclubs or movie theaters. ‘There Was Demand’ “There are aspects of Saudi that will put people off,” said Jarrod Kyte, product director at U.

Mercedes brought back the S-Class Coupe for the 2015 model year and with it came the best design, technology, and luxury features the German automaker had to offer at the time. It was heavily based on the S-Class Coupe Concept that debuted in Frankfurt back in 2014 and came with one of two engines: a 3.0-liter V-6 with 367 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque or a 4.7-liter V-8 with 449 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. It’s only been a couple of years since the new S-Class entered the market, and Mercedes is now busy preparing the car’s first facelift – a venture that should manifest itself for the 2018 model year. Little is known about the facelift at this point but considering it’s Mercedes that we’re talking about, there isnt going to be much. Expect to see new exterior light units, new front and rear fascias, and a few minor changes inside – maybe even a new instrument cluster or steering wheel.

Land Rover just dropped an above-and-behind teaser image of its new Velar SUV, saying it will fill the gap between the smaller Range Rover Evoque and larger Range Rover Sport. The Velar supposedly uses the same platform as the Jaguar F-Pace, and is expected to take on rivals like the BMW X4, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe, and Porsche Macan, with four-cylinder, six-cylinder, and possibly even hybrid powerplants offered under the hood. Land Rover has yet to divulge many details, but did say the Velar will offerelegant simplicity, a visually reductive approach and all-new consumer technologies,” so we’re guessing a coupe-like, streamlined, and somewhat minimalist exterior, a good dose of interior opulence, and a suite of semi- autonomous driving tech. Studying the provided press pic, we can also see a large moonroof and a decently sized touchscreen in the dash.

General Motors decision to end all Australian manufacturing is coming into effect in 2017, when the iconic Holden Commodore will be discontinued. But, this move will also affect U.S. muscle enthusiasts, who wont be able to order the Chevrolet SS anymore. Word has it that Chevy is set to close the ordering books at the end of February, meaning theres only a week left to place an order. The news comes from GM Authority , which claims that the performance sedan will not be sold beyond February 28. The outlet also claims that there wont be a send-off edition like the Commodore received in Australia, which is a shame to be honest. Instead customers will be able to order the sedan in Orange Blast Metallic instead of last years Some Like It Hot Red Metallic color. But even though production and orders will come to an end, theres a chance that inventory will mount and Chevy will end up with a solid stock of SS models.
