Handling Disapointment Proactively

4/30/2017:

Disappointment handled the Biblical way without presumption.  The following proactive approach is outlined in James 4:13-15.

“Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit. Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.  Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.”

High Cost of Drugs; Why?

4/27/17: Drugs are expensive for one main reason; cost of FDA regulations.  New drug submissions require a Phase I to show they are safe.  Then a Phase II of 500-1000 cases to show it works.  If still positive then a Phase III of 2000 to 10000 cases are required with at least a 2 year follow-up.

Here are the facts.  Only 15% of drugs are approved.   85% fail, but unfortunately they fail in Phase III when the millions are spent.  So the drug companies must cover the cost of the 85% that fail in the charge for the 15% that pass.

Cases in point: I have a patented means to reduce surgical infections by coating a total joint implant at time of surgery so that any bacteria or biofilm colony would be destroyed upon contact.   No total joint company is interested in that the cost of the FDA study would be 50 to 150 million dollars to attempt to gain approval.  There would be a humanitarian and societal benefit, but the companies are in business to make money.

It was announced today that back in 2014, Roche spent $725 million upfront on Seragon Pharmaceuticals, but three years down the line, it has now canned work on its leading drug, ARN-810.

 

Wealth creation in America; a new method.

4/24/2017: The new formula for wealth creating in America is based upon hearsay and sexual harassment.   One party says it happened, the accused says it did not.  The accused has choice to pay off or defend.  Either way the accused will be the loser in time, money and reputation even in the absence of evidence.  The amount of the accuser’s payout is not directly related to proof of the crime or the magnitude thereof, but to the wealth and perhaps more importantly, the prominence of the accused.

Support for this wealth creation formula is the unlikely existence of a poor person (man) being accused of sexual harassment?

Evidence of sexual harassment is rare and therefore apparently not legally necessary for the news media conviction.  With evidence the scenario is much different; the accuser has a legitimate case.
