Mylan to launch generic EpiPen at half the price of original

August 29, 2016

 By Ankur Banerjee

(Reuters) – Mylan NV said it would launch the first generic version of its allergy auto-injector EpiPen at half the price of the branded product, the drugmaker’s second step in less than a week to counter a wave of criticism over the product’s high price.

The company reduced the out-of-pocket costs of EpiPen for some patients last week, but kept the list price at about $600, a move that lawmakers said was not enough. EpiPen cost about $100 in 2008.

Mylan said on Monday it expected to launch the generic product “in several weeks” at a list price of $300, an highly unusual move considering the branded product is still under patent protection and rival treatments have failed to get regulatory clearances. There will be two pens in each packet.

Trump Bolsters Foreign-Policy Team by Adding Carson and Palin

The New Yorker

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—After stumbling badly on an interview question about Ukraine, the Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump attempted on Tuesday to reassure voters about his geopolitical expertise by adding the retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and the former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to his team of foreign-policy advisers.

“Donald Trump always said that, as President, he would surround himself with the best people,” Trump’s spokesperson, Hope Hicks, said. “In Governor Palin and Dr. Carson, Mr. Trump now has the Dream Team.”

Speaking to reporters, Palin dismissed the controversy over Ukraine as “much ado about a gotcha question.”

“Donald Trump is one hundred and ten percent correct when he says that no one needs to be worrying about Ukraine,” she said. “If you look Ukraine up on Google Maps, like I just did, it’s right where it’s always been.”

Donald Trump Holds Press Conference To Announce Ben Carson Endorsement

Dr. Carson said that, as President, Donald Trump would support the territorial integrity of Ukraine and “its magnificent network of underground grain tunnels.”

“I cannot overemphasize the importance of Ukraine’s grain pipeline,” he said. “If you choke off Ukraine, Europe cannot bake bread.”

Trump’s spokesperson said that the additions to his foreign-policy brain trust should give voters “great confidence” that a Trump White House would be equal to the challenge of an international crisis. “When that 3 a.m. call comes in, and Mr. Trump is busy on Twitter, Dr. Carson and Governor Palin will be there to take the call,” she said.

He’s Not Running, But Pigeon’s Name Comes Up in Mazurek-Wallace Race for Assembly

You might think the names of Kristy L. Mazurek or Monica P. Wallace would dominate the 143rd Assembly contest in Cheektowaga and Lancaster this primary season.

After all, they face each other for the Democratic nomination on Sept. 13.

But not this year. Not in this political climate.

G. Steven Pigeon seems to enter just about every discussion of the race, especially in light of Mazurek’s long association with the political operative. And Wallace is devoting much of her campaign to linking the indicted Pigeon to Mazurek, who in turn, defends herself as an independent Democrat waging her own effort.

For University Heights Residents, a Year Has Made a World of Difference

UB students returned in force to the University Heights neighborhood Friday, but police were waiting to head off potential problems. (Sharon Cantillon/Buffalo News)
UB students returned in force to the University Heights neighborhood Friday, but police were waiting to head off potential problems.

Friday night, traditionally one of the biggest party nights of the year for university students in the University Heights neighborhood, some things remained the same this year. Some things were very different.

Thousands of students packed buses at the Amherst campus and traveled into the city neighborhood, arriving as frequently as every three minutes, not every 20 minutes, as planned.

Once they got off the buses, the students walked the streets, looking for house parties. They found the parties on Winspear Avenue, Northrup Place and Englewood Avenue, as well as some nearby streets.

But Buffalo police were out in force, and they broke up house parties, dispersing the students.

Neighbors, some of whom felt besieged last year as they watched the flow of loud students clogging the sidewalks, praised the police presence.

Pence Recaptured After Fleeing Trump Campaign Bus

The New Yorker

VIRGINIA (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it a “scary moment” and a “close call,” Donald Trump’s campaign officials confirmed that they had recaptured Mike Pence after the Indiana governor attempted to flee the campaign bus in the early hours of Friday morning.

According to the campaign, Pence had asked to stop at a McDonald’s in rural Virginia so that he could use the bathroom, but aides grew concerned when the governor failed to reappear after twenty minutes.

After determining that Pence had given them the slip, Trump staffers fanned out across the Virginia backcountry, where the governor was believed to have fled.

News that Pence had vanished touched off a panic in Indiana, where residents feared that he might return to resume his political career.

After forty-five minutes of searching, however, campaign officials located a bedraggled and dazed Pence walking along Virginia State Route 287, where the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee was attempting unsuccessfully to hitch a ride.

A confrontation that Trump aides characterized as “tense” ensued, after which a sobbing Pence returned to the bus.

In the aftermath of Pence’s disappearance, Hope Hicks, Trump’s press secretary, attempted to downplay the severity of the incident. “This is the kind of thing that happens in the course of a long and demanding campaign,” she said. “Having said that, we’re grateful to have Mike Pence back with us, and we won’t let him get away again.”

Reportedly, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie offered to fill in for Pence in the event that he became unable to fulfill his duties. That offer was declined.

Water Should be Tested in All Areas of the City and Suburbs

lead pipes

The people of our area have always bragged about how good our tap water has tasted.  The EPA tested the water last year and said our drinking water is safe.  They only tested houses of prominent citizens like our Mayor, Crystal Peoples and other well-off people connected to the local government and people who got jobs from the political leaders in our area.

They didn’t test water in the poorer neighborhoods of Buffalo and the surrounding areas.

There is a correct procedure to test water and they didn’t follow it.  They did it their way.

Most likely the lead content in many of our homes overall is above the amount which is safe for people.

Just like the drug industry, the top boys make the big money while you and I are slowly being poisoned to death by the lead pipes which carry our drinking water.

The houses which were tested were people elected to office and people who were given jobs by public officials – like Poloncarz’s little brother.  He was given a job and his water was tested and he’s safe.

Byron Brown’s house was tested.  His water is safe.  It’s amazing how he shows time after time how the public can be lied to, until people start getting sick or die.  Then he blames everyone but himself because he is a lying, weak man with no courage or integrity.

If he cared for the people who elected him he would lead the fight in so many  of our areas which  needs help but then he might make a mistake and not be picked by our Governor for a juicey high paying job like most weakling get if they get their mouth’s shut  when the Governor goofs up on so many projects.
