In Saturday’s season-opening tilt with the Southeastern Louisiana Lions, two notable starters were missing from the fold.It was reported in the pre-game that both defensive end Jordan Brailford and wide receiver Chris Lacy would not (and did not) play Saturday due to injuries. According to the report from Oklahoma State insider Robert Allen, Brailford was held out due to a leg injury and did not suit up, while Chris Lacy was held out as a precaution due to a knee injury.In Mike Gundy’s press conference following the game, he did state that he expects both guys to be back in practice this week. Both injuries seem to have held them out on a precautionary basis, but it will be something to keep an eye on this week as they hopefully eye a return to the field.Chris Lacy back on the #okstate depth chart this week, backing up Washington. DE Jordan Brailford listed as an “or” with Cole Walterscheid.— Nathan Ruiz (@NathanSRuiz) September 5, 2016Other depth chart notes this week:• Larry Williams starting at RG (which actually happened on Saturday) and Jesse Robinson as the new backup LG• Darius Curry starting at nickel• Michael Wilson was taken off the two deep at center and moved to RT• DeQuinton Osborne slides into the No. 2 DT slot behind Vincent Taylor and Sugar Loaf Daniels moves to No. 3• Kevin Henry was added as the No. 3 WLB with the announcement that Josh Mabin is retiring• Jeff Carr was added as the No. 3 KR• Max Allan was added as the No. 3 PKFive possible starters listed at running back for #okstate again— Dekota Gregory (@dekotagregory) September 5, 2016last_img read more

15 year old boy shot dead Bahamas Christian Council says country needs

first_img Violence trumps peaceful resolution, causing Bahamas high murder rate Related Items:#15yearoldshotinNassau, #magneticmedianews, #stoptheviolence Improved youth programs, more Police presence and encouragement to ‘walk away’ from TCI House members Recommended for youcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 18, 2017 – Nassau – Another child is killed in gun violence in Nassau, a 15 year old was gunned down intentionally overnight in the capital, and the boy from Greenwich Street is at least the second 15 year old shot to death this year.   This latest shooting happened off Prison lane, when a dark-coloured car pulled up, someone took aim and shot the boy who later died at hospital.The mind-numbing report comes as the new FNM government grapples with getting a grip on the crime situation by trying to calm increasing concerns with statistics.   Bahamas Christian Council president, Bishop Delton Fernander says the country is uninterested in trends and more interested in a solid solution to curbing violent crime.   Minister Marvin Dames, who heads up National Security told media outside of Cabinet that the killing is slowing, but admits that the decline in how many are being killed within this last quarter versus the first quarter of 2017 is ‘not meaningful’.   The change according to Minister Dames is ever so slight.   One news organization says it is more than slight though, they say it is flat out wrong.The Tribune newspaper says according to its records, there were 50 murders and not 58 from January to the end of April as explained by Minister Dames.   And that from May to now, 63 more people have been killed and not the figure of 54 put out by the Minister.   The Minister also told media that the murderers being sought by Police are young – in fact, he called them ‘children’ and he exposed that they are indeed turf wars for small time drug dealers.“What you see happening now is that officers are not just looking at solving one murder but we understand the complexity related to these issues, so we know that they are gang related and they are being driven by persons who are fighting for turf to sell drugs and so they are trying to take out the next one.”We also learn that the man killed on Ida Street on Monday is 23-year-old Gregory Hanna; Police say they have a suspect in custody for that homicide.#MagneticMediaNews#15yearoldshotinNassau#stoptheviolence Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Tougher Regulations for Indian Pharma Paves Way for MA Deals

first_imgIndia’s smaller generic drugmakers, struggling to cope with a bruised reputation and tougher regulation in the United States, are under pressure to consider branching out to new, less-profitable markets or sell out to larger rivals.Two years after its most high-profile regulatory setback to date in the United States – Ranbaxy’s $500 million U.S. fine for drug safety violations – India’s $15 billion a year generic drug industry is still rebuilding its image in its biggest market.Many of its top firms are facing sanctions at some of their factories, as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tightens checks and its approvals process.Combined with government-mandated price controls on drugs at home, that is piling pressure on smaller players.”If they want to have a presence globally, they have to make investments. If they can’t, then they’ll have to focus on other markets or scale back their ambition outside of India, and that’s probably what will happen,” said Subhanu Saxena, CEO of Cipla, India’s fourth-largest drugmaker by revenue.Ashok Anand, president of Hikal Ltd, a Mumbai-based drugmaker with a market value of $167 million, said some peers were putting themselves on the block.”If they cannot deal with the stricter regulations, they might just prefer to sell out,” he said.Pressure on U.S. sales has been felt across the Indian industry, with all drugmakers hit by delays in FDA approvals as the U.S. safety body overhauls its review process. Growth in U.S. revenue for drugmakers slowed to 14 percent in the year to March 2015, less than half what it was in the year to March 2012, according to brokerage Edelweiss.But for larger players who want to plug gaps or, for the likes of Glenmark and Aurobindo who aim to grow in the United States, this pressure has lowered prices and could pave the way for attractive deals, bankers said.”Now that some of the smaller companies are reeling under intensive regulatory scrutiny and want to cash out on their investments, valuations would be much more realistic,” said the head of India M&A at a large European bank in Mumbai.SPENDING SPREEIndian manufacturers say they have spent millions in high-end testing equipment, improved training and have hired larger teams in quality control since Ranbaxy was fined for manipulating clinical data.Some consultants estimate spending on compliance has more than doubled to reach about 6 to 7 percent of sales for the larger companies.But while the number of U.S. export bans issued to Indian companies fell to eight in 2014 from 21 in 2013, according to FDA data, the agency continues to find manufacturing violations at the plants of some of the biggest drugmakers in the country, an indication of the pervasiveness of the problem.Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Wockhardt, Dr Reddy’s Laboratories and Cadila Healthcare have all faced FDA rebukes over the past year.Smaller firms Ipca and Aarti Drugs faced FDA bans on their plants this year.These failures – which executives blame on India’s “quick fix” culture and consultants blame on a failure to prioritise compliance – have clouded short-term growth prospects and added to pressure on smaller players, pushing some to look elsewhere.”They can choose to be in lesser-regulated markets, such as Latin America, where there is a lot of demand. But they will have to live with much thinner margins,” said the finance director of a small Indian drugmaker, who did not want to be named. “It’s survival of the fittest.”last_img read more
