A merger makes sense but J&J needs to come up with a higher price tag

first_imgMonday 10 January 2011 8:35 pm A merger makes sense but J&J needs to come up with a higher price tag A MERGER between Smith & Nephew (S&N) and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) would certainly make sense. The orthopaedics business has struggled in the wake of the recession, and S&N is no exception. Sales at its flagship hip reconstruction business fell in the first nine months of 2010 compared to a year earlier, largely due to price pressure in the US and EU. Its interests in endoscopy and advanced wound management have helped soften the blow, although not entirely. A merged S&N and J&J would have a combined market share of between 35 and 37 per cent (compared to S&N’s 10 to 17 per cent) in hips and knees, giving the firm a market leading position ahead of No. 1 player Zimmer, on 22 to 28 per cent. Now J&J needs to come up with a more sensible price tag. whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Read This Next’Pose’ Creator Steven Canals on Life After His Groundbreaking Show: ‘I’mThe Wrap’The Boys’ Star Aya Cash Took Inspiration From YouTube, TikTok and SteveThe WrapHow HGTV’s ‘Renovation Island’ Changed Bryan and Sarah Baeumler’sThe Wrap’Bridgerton’ Stars Phoebe Dynevor and Nicola Coughlan on Daphne andThe WrapBest Wine Gifts & Wine Accessories at Every PriceGayot’Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife’ Earns $17 Million 5-Day Opening as Box OfficeThe WrapFox News’ Mark Levin Says Capitol Riot Suspects ‘Would Be Treated Better’The WrapEverything We Know, or Think We Know, About the Time-Keepers on ‘Loki’The Wrap’The Crown’: What Went Into Finding Princess Diana and Margaret ThatcherThe Wrap Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Photo/Lucy Chumbly[Episcopal News Service — Washington, D.C.] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, a former Girl Scout, preached at a packed April 28 interfaith service at Washington National Cathedral that celebrated a century of girl scouting.Before the opening sing-along began, with a rendition of “Make New Friends,” girls in green sashes and badge-embellished waistcoats scampered around the cathedral, taking photos of the stained glass windows with tiny phones. (Extra credit went to those who found, and photographed, the Girl Scout trefoil carved into a boss stone in the cathedral’s west entrance).Welcoming the members, families and friends of the Girl Scouts Council of the Nation’s Capital, the Rev. Canon Mary Sulerud, the cathedral’s interim director of worship, recalled spending a hot July day at the Juliette Gordon Low house in Savannah, Georgia, “so that our daughter could earn her badge.”Juliette Gordon Low, nicknamed “Daisy,” founded the Girl Scouts in 1912 on the principle that all girls should have the opportunity to develop physically, mentally and spiritually. One hundred years on, there are 3.2 million Girl Scouts in the United States.Low was also a committed Episcopalian and lifelong member of Christ Church in Savannah, Georgia, where she was baptized, confirmed and married. After her death in 1927, hundreds of Girl Scouts attended her funeral there.“The story is that Daisy Low sold her pearls so the Girls Scouts could have a secure start,” Sulerud said, referring to the Parable of the Pearl (Matthew 13: 45-46) in which a merchant sells everything he has to possess a pearl of great value.“Welcome to you who are the pearls of great price,” she said. “God bless you all.”In a touching tribute to Low, the opening procession of religious and Girl Scout leaders was led by pairs of girls bearing flags – and daisies. As the procession divided at the altar, the girls placed the daisies in two vases before a white wreath.Theresa Tancre, of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, recited a surah from the Quran in Arabic, and Imam Mohammed Magid, the society’s executive director, offered a prayer.Prayers also were offered by the Rev. Frank Ready of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Arlington, Virginia, the Rev. Kaz Nakata and Erick Ishii of the Ekoji Buddhist Temple (who scattered paper petals as a sign of welcome), D.C. Rao of the Interfaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington, Rabbi Rachel Gartner, director of Jewish Chaplaincy at Georgetown University and the Rev. Nancy Lee, of Community of Hope ANC Church.On pink crutches, Glenda Longus, a Girl Scout senior from West Virginia, made her way to the pulpit, where she led the congregation in a recitation of the Girl Scout Law.Then Lindsey Rubin, a Girl Scout senior from Virginia, spoke of the intersection of the teachings of her Jewish faith and the Girl Scout code.“I have found much of my inner strength through faith and girl scouting, and every day they inspire me to strive for change in ways big and small,” she said.Abrar Omeish, Girl Scout ambassador and board member from Virginia, recited the Quran’s Surah 49:13, which calls on the world’s nations and tribes to know each other, not despise each other.Omeish said the Girl Scout code “agreed with my religious mandates and enacted the theme of the verse I read.”Rubin and Omeish each spoke of the importance of the Girl Scouts’ message of sisterhood, and Omeish pointed to the opportunities for dialogue the organization fostered, recalling one camp where “the girls spent a whole night in their cabin discussing each other’s religion rather than sleeping.”The Girl Scouts “have created the perfect area of commonality,” she said. “We all have the honor to worship together today and recognize our similarities.”After Emily Quinn, a Girl Scout ambassador from Virginia, read the story of the Widow’s Mite (Luke 21:1-4), Jefferts Schori got up to preach.“I first went to Girl Scout Camp when I was 7 years old,” Jefferts Schori said, noting that among the lessons learned there – identifying birds, learning to plant trees, tie knots or build a fire – the most important was how to live in community “and those gifts of character, like dignity and respect.”Describing a group of students who recently raised $80,000 to help a classmate with a brain tumor – baking cookies, inviting people to sponsor them jumping rope and simply reaching out to ask –Jefferts Schori compared them to the widow in the Gospel of Luke, who was willing to share everything she had.“She puts in her two cents, and it makes a world of difference,” she said. “That’s a big part of what it means to be a Girl Scout.”The foundation for a worthy, meaningful life, she said, is to “use what you have been given – who you are, and the gifts and skills you’re developing – to make a difference. That is how we serve God and our neighbors – by loving them.“Do that, and I expect that Girl Scouts will still be helping girls grow into mature and confident women, sharing and serving the world around us a hundred years from now.”— Lucy Chumbley is a freelance journalist based in Washington, D.C.

Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] One of an Episcopal priest’s most solemn duties – praying the Ministration at the Time of Death, also known as “last rites” – is particularly difficult to fulfill during the current coronavirus pandemic because hospitals have tightened access restrictions to prevent further spread of the virus.“You can’t reach and touch someone’s hand, even through bedsheets, as they’re dying,” the Rev. Alice Downs said, “because they are alone.”Downs, a former hospice chaplain now living in Maine, is one of 87 Episcopal priests and deacons who have volunteered to minister by phone to people dying of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, which has infected more than a million people worldwide. The phone ministry is called “Dial-a-Priest” and was created in a matter of days by the TryTank Experimental Lab, a joint project of Virginia Theological Seminary and General Theological Seminary.“What we’re doing is a pastoral response to a need, which is that there are people who are dying and we know we have words of comfort,” said the Rev. Lorenzo Lebrija, TryTank’s director. He began working on “Dial-a-Priest” about a week ago as an imperfect solution to an unprecedented challenge posed by the coronavirus.The words of comfort in the Book of Common Prayer’s Ministration at the Time of Death typically are read by clergy called to the bedside of a dying person. That face-to-face scenario still is preferred, Lebrija told Episcopal News Service. With help from dioceses and parishes, he is promoting this free phone-based service to hospitals when they have no other option for connecting a patient nearing death to a priest.“Church is about community, and this is a way we can, in these awful circumstances, still try to be one people,” he said.Starting April 7, Lebrija has scheduled one or more of the volunteer priests and deacons to be available to receive calls from 4 a.m. to midnight EDT each day, with expanded coverage as the roster grows. The volunteers are all Episcopal clergy, but they will pray with people of any faith. The volunteers will log in to a dispatching system and wait for their phones to ring.It remains unclear how often those phones will ring, but the potential need is great. More than 67,000 people worldwide have died so far from COVID-19, including more than 10,000 in the United States. Most cases are reported to be mild, with symptoms similar to seasonal influenza, but life-threatening conditions can develop in severe cases.Lebrija chose the name “Dial-a-Priest” not to make light of the trauma such patients are enduring, but because it is an easy phrase to remember. A dying patient, or the patient’s doctor or nurse, can call 213-423-3600 to be connected, and the number also can easily be found and dialed with a single click from DialAPriest.com.An automated message will let the caller know that a clergy member will be on the line shortly. Lebrija hopes to offer callers a Spanish option, when he recruits more Spanish-speaking volunteers. TryTank’s calling system will ring all of the priests and deacons who are currently logged in, and the first one to answer will be connected with the person who is nearing death.The priest then will begin the prayers: “Almighty God, look on this your servant, lying in great weakness, and comfort him with the promise of life everlasting, given in the resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”Downs, the Maine priest, repeated those words many times in the 1980s. She worked for several years with the Momentum Project, providing pastoral end-of-life care to dying AIDS patients in the New York area. In her later work as a hospice chaplain, she again repeated the prayers at the time of death for elderly patients in central New Jersey, where she also served as a parish priest.In the coronavirus pandemic, “what’s different about this is how alone people are,” Downs said in an interview with ENS. With the virus spreading rapidly across the United States in the past month, social distancing policies across the country aim to limit further infections so hospitals are not overwhelmed. Even close relatives may not be allowed to visit and say goodbye to those who are dying from the disease.Downs heard from a fellow priest who is connected to Virginia Theological Seminary about this new TryTank initiative. TryTank’s experiments seek to reinvigorate The Episcopal Church through new approaches to ongoing challenges. She let Lebrija know she can be available for calls from 8 to 10 a.m. every Monday through Friday from her home in Southwest Harbor.“I think one of the most beautiful things The Episcopal Church has is the [Book of Common Prayer’s] words at the time of death and immediately afterwards,” she said, “and just to be able to say those, should I be called on in this ministry, at least helps me believe we are still all one people.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Government asked to guarantee distribution of Tamil newspapers in east of country

first_img to go further Help by sharing this information Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists News July 15, 2020 Find out more News News Reporters Without Borders today called on media and information minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa to act quickly to ensure that all Tamil newspapers can circulate freely in areas controlled by the government.A pro-government militia led by Tamil warlord Karuna has reimposed a ban on the Sunday edition of the newspaper Virakesari, with the result that the last two issues were unable to circulate in the east of the country. This means the Sunday editions of all three Tamil dailies – Thinakural, Virakesari and Sudar Oli – cannot circulate because of threats to distributors by the militia.Karuna banned all four of the Virakesari press group’s newspapers on 23 October. Sales were able to resume after the government issued a statement condemning this press freedom violation. The president himself ordered the chief of police to prevent further attacks on Tamil newspapers on 27 October. A ban on Sudar Oli and Thinakural has been in effect for much longer.Enforcement of the ban is strictest in the Batticaloa region, where distributors regularly receive death threats. On the other hand, there are no obstacles to distribution of the governmental Tamil newspaper Thinakaran.

Wade’s nomination as the next Assistant Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. “Her past experience and tenure as Acting Federal Housing Commissioner and General Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Housing will allow her to hit the ground running,” said Ed Demarco, President, Housing Policy Council. He added that upon full Senate confirmation, Wade is expected to continue the “important enhancements” enabling FHA and mortgage servicers to continue servicing borrowers through COVID-19. The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) sent a letter to the Senate Banking Committee pledging its support of Wade.”Ms. Wade—who has a wealth of experience regarding housing and housing finance—showed herself to be a strong advocate for affordable housing, including affordable manufactured housing, during her prior tenure at HUD,” the letter stated. “Commendably, Ms. Wade was always available to hear the concerns of both the industry and consumers of affordable housing and took key actions to modernize the federal manufactured housing program at HUD and bring it more closely into compliance with the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000, after nearly two decades of needless delay.”The letter continued by saying Wade is a “tireless advocate for safe, decent, quality, and affordable housing.””Particularly given the urgent national need for affordable housing and homeownership that exists today, she would be an important and worthy addition to the management team at HUD.  Consequently, MHARR strongly supports her nomination and urges the Committee to recommend her for confirmation by the full Senate,” the letter said.The U.S. Senate Banking Committee advanced Wade’s during a hearing on Tuesday. Wade was advanced by a 15-10 vote by the committee. “Mrs. Wade is well-positioned to take on the task of Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development,” said  U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee. “Mrs. Wade served as Acting Federal Housing Commissioner and General Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Housing, where she directly managed FHA’s portfolio of single-family, multifamily and healthcare insurance; Section 8 project-based rental assistance; the Office of Manufactured Housing; and over 2,400 personnel agency-wide.”Wade was nominated for the position of Federal Housing Commissioner by President Donald Trump in February. “As I look around this hearing room, I see the Senate continuing the people’s work but under very different circumstances,” Wade said during her opening statement at her confirmation hearing earlier this month. “If confirmed, I will commit to do everything I can as FHA Commissioner to help the country emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic healthier, stronger, and with a more prosperous economy.”Wade was previously the acting Federal Housing Commissioner and Assistant Secretary for Housing from July 2017 to June 2018. She supervised more than 2,400 employees and implemented risk management and monitoring of the Federal Housing Agency’s $1.3 trillion portfolios.She also served as a Program Associate Director for General Government at the Office of Management and Budget from December 2018 to December 2019, where she led budget oversight for six Executive Branch agencies with a focus on financial services, including HUD.last_img read more
