Profits target upped by J&J

first_img whatsapp Tuesday 19 April 2011 8:34 pm Show Comments ▼ Profits target upped by J&J HEALTHCARE giant Johnson & Johnson (J&J) yesterday upped its profit forecast for this year, despite a first-quarter slump caused by product recalls.The US firm revealed earnings of $3.48bn (£2.1bn) for the first three months of this year, down 23 per cent on the $4.53bn it made over the same period a year earlier. Recalling a hip replacement product cost it $271m in charges, plus further costs due to the withdrawal of 300m packages of consumer medicines.US sales were also hit, after regulators called a halt on production at its Pennsylvania consumer drug facility after lapses in quality control were discovered. However, total sales managed to increase despite being “significantly impacted”, according to the firm. Revenues increased 3.5 per cent to $16.17bn, above Wall Street expectations of $15.84bn. whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapPink Floyd’s Roger Waters Denies Zuckerberg’s Request to Use Song in Ad:The WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Video: Syrian Anglican priest urges dialogue for peace

first_img February 16, 2012 at 12:05 pm I met this priest when he visited a parish in Washington, DC. I believe he is the kind of person who could succeed in opening dialogue to avert continued bloodshed and violence. His group, the Awareness Foundation, is supported by St. Paul’s Parish K Street in DC, among others. Jenny Brake says: [Episcopal News Service] Syria has for the past 11 months been embroiled in a civil conflict in which President Bashar al-Assad and his supporters have responded with violence and bloodshed to protestors calling for an end to his leadership.In recent weeks the crackdown has escalated in many of Syria’s major cities. U.N. and human rights groups have estimated that the Syrian Army has killed at least 6,000 protesters since the start of the uprising in March 2011.China and Russia vetoed a Feb. 4 U.N. Security Council Resolution that would have called for Assad to step down. Before the vote, President Barack Obama denounced Assad’s “unspeakable assault,” demanded that he leave power immediately, and called for U.N. action against his “relentless brutality.”The Rev. Nadim Nassar, a Syrian Anglican priest who lives in London and is a member of the Church of England, speaks with ENS about the need for dialogue between the current regime and its opponents for there to be any hope of a peaceful resolution. Nassar is director of the London-based Awareness Foundation, an ecumenical initiative founded in 2003 in response to religious conflict and violence around the world and to educate about peaceful coexistence in pluralistic societies.

Rough night for the Waratahs and Atieli Pakalani vs the Blues

first_imgMonday Jun 27, 2011 Rough night for the Waratahs and Atieli Pakalani vs the Blues The first qualifier of this past weekend’s Super Rugby playoffs turned out to be quite a physical affair, with plenty of big hits and players dropping like flies. Here’s a few of the tackles that might have caught your attention. The Waratahs went into the match with a horrible injury count. At the beginning of their campaign, their first choice team were nothing like what turned out against the Blues, and during the match itself, they lost a few more players. While both sides – and indeed a few others – have been through a tough time of late personnel wise, the Sydney side’s injury list makes grim reading. Coach Chris Hickey refused to use that as an excuse for the loss though, and all things considered, they put on a decent display. During the match itself, there was no holding back as both sides gave their all in the knockout clash. As you can see in this short compilation video, Jerome Kaino threw his body around a fair bit (and other peoples), and Keven Mealamu and Stephen Brett combined earlier in the game for a for a big hit on wing Atieli Pakalani. One of the more enjoyable moments though was prop John Afoa’s impressive kick chase and tackle, also on Pakalani, and then later on there was the sickening head-clash between big Sitaleki Timani and, you guessed it, Pakalani. Rough night for him. Another short highlight was Ali Williams’ kick ahead, to add to his try in the same match . The Blues have also got a few injury concerns, with Anthony Boric being rules out from their crunch semi final with the Reds this coming weekend. He has a foot strain.

The original parquet flooring was numbered, removed, refurbished and re-laid in its original position.

Federal Spending Bill Aids Dairy and Disaster Programs

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Federal Spending Bill Aids Dairy and Disaster Programs SHARE Federal-spending-ag-benefitsSome dairy producers and lawmakers have been asking for changes in the dairy Margin Protection Program, saying it was too expensive and didn’t pay out enough to make the program worthwhile. Those changes were expected in the new farm bill, but in the new federal spending bill there is an adjustment in MPP, according to USDA chief economist Rob Johansson.It was adjusted “by raising the floor on that margin program from $4 to $5, and also lowering premium costs on the lower part of that and raising the amount of milk that producers can insure under that lower tier in the first,” Johansson said.To make the program more responsive to price declines potential payments could be calculated every month, not every other month as outlined originally by MPP. Johansson says the farm bill process should be easier for lawmakers since it was up for an overhaul which now is not necessary.Another benefit from the spending bill is “there’s a little bit more budget to work with if they want to make further changes to the program.”Some USDA disaster programs are also getting a boost in the new spending bill to the tune of $2.4 billion. Johansson says the bill doesn’t create new disaster programs, but it does expand existing ones. One example, it removes congressionally mandated caps on total spending for some of the programs, “such as the emergency assistance for livestock, honeybees, and farm raised fish, or ELAP. The cap on that was currently set at $20 million a year. That’s been removed. It increases acreage limitation under the Tree Assistance Program or the TAP program, previously limited to 500 acres. That’s been raised to 1,000 acres.”Some of the programs had caps on how much an individual producer could be compensated for disasters. Those caps are removed for the Tree Assistance Program and the Livestock Indemnity Program. Overall, it is an effort to provide more disaster help for more producers.“So, we will be working with states to assess how those programs are going to be set up to provide assistance to those producers.”Source: USDA Facebook Twitter Federal Spending Bill Aids Dairy and Disaster Programs SHARE By Andy Eubank – Feb 12, 2018 Facebook Twitter Previous articleIndiana Grown Members Talk Benefits of Membership at Fantastic Food Fest 2018Next articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for February 13, 2018 Andy Eubanklast_img read more
