Here's a guide to common types of personal injuries


We find ourselves in many undesirable situations in our lives. Sometimes it is our fault, other times it is someone else's. You may have a personal injury claim if you were injured by someone else's negligence, choices, or willful intent.

Although 97 percent of cases do not go to trial, in the end, most defendants settle for a predetermined amount. What are the most common types of personal injuries? How can you determine if you have grounds to receive compensation?

Different types of personal injury cases
There are no two personal injury cases the same. There will always be variations depending on the case, the parties involved and the lawyers hired. To pursue financial compensation for your injuries, it is important to hire a personal injury attorney.

Continue reading to learn about the most common types of personal injury cases and to determine if they are applicable to your case.

Medical Malpractice
The actions of medical personnel are a common cause of personal injury. These could include doctors, surgeons, and consultants. You may be able to file a medical malpractice suit if you have been injured, ill, or suffered any other harm to your mental or bodily health as a result of a facility or health-related professional.

Accidents at Work
Many workplace injuries result in personal injuries. These include slip and fall cases, lawsuits against hazardous work environments, lawsuits against hazardous material, and many other types of personal injuries. You may be eligible for financial compensation if you have been hurt at work by an unsafe environment or the negligence/willful intent of your superiors.

Motor vehicle accident
Car accidents can have a lasting impact on your life. You may be able to sue the other driver for personal injuries if you have been involved in a motor vehicle collision and sustained injuries. If the accident was caused due to negligence, recklessness, or other factors, your case could be particularly strong.

Dog Bite
Dog bites are one of the most common forms of personal injury. Dog bites are common in the United States. Approximately 4.7 million Americans get bitten each year by dogs, with 800,000. Those who require medical attention need to be treated.

Some people get bit by their own mistakes or negligence, but many others are bitten by the dogs of neighbors, street dogs, and other dogs. You have the right to safety from pets owned by others. You can seek financial compensation from the owner if you are bitten by a dog.

Product Liability/Product Failure
You should not be injured if you buy a product and it is used for its intended purpose. You can sue the manufacturer if you sustain personal injuries as a result of a product defect or malfunction.

Manufacturers often include documents explaining how the product is to be used safely and who the company is responsible for. This is done to avoid unnecessary lawsuits and protect their assets. To determine if you are eligible for a personal injury case, consult an injury lawyer.

Louisiana Drug Possession Laws
In the state of Louisiana, drug crimes make up roughly 65% of all criminal charges. Possession charges, which make up the majority of all those charges are misdemeanor offenses. Many of the accused are not drug dealers and most are not. Drug possession is by definition a small amount of a narcotic for personal use, otherwise, you would be dealing with the more serious offense of Possession with Intent to Distribute which is a felony. Learn how to get a possession charge dismissed. What are the types of possession? There are two types of possession cases: Actual possession: This means that you were caught with the drugs actually on your person like in your pocket, wallet, purse, handbag, etc. This typically is a result of a police search so it is best that you retain an attorney to review your case to determine if the search was lawful. If the search was unlawful then there's a great possibility that the evidence will be dismissed and the charges dropped. Constructive possession: This is a little more confusing and means that you had the power to exercise dominion and control over the drugs. Essentially this applies when the drugs are not actually on your person but maybe in the car that you were driving, or in your home where you live. Again this type of case usually results from a search so consult an attorney to review your case. If you are convicted for any of the above possession cases then you will have a criminal record. That does not mean that you will have a permanent record that will follow you for the rest of your life but the possibility of having it expunged after 3 years will depend on what type of plea deal you entered into. That is why it is so important to have a competent Criminal Defense lawyer represent you and to advise you of all your options before you enter a plea or decide to take the case to trial. The sentence range for possession charges can range from 0-30 days jail up to 0-3 years, it all depends on the narcotic you are charged with. A Drug Possession Charge does have to end in Conviction Our court system, although slow, has begun to recognize that sending people to jail is simply not a deterrent for a person with an addiction problem or a first-time offender who has no criminal history. The jail system in the United States has increasingly begun to swell with a population that is largely due to non-violent drug offenders. There are several programs available that can help you avoid jail time or even a conviction if you complete the program successfully. These diversionary programs consist of drug court and pre-trial intervention. Not only are these programs a benefit to the addict but the public at large and the jail system benefits because successful applicants do not clog up the jails, taxpayers do not have to pay for their housing, and the rate of repeat offenders is reduced dramatically. To learn more about these programs and the benefits and costs involved it is important that you contact a Charleston criminal defense lawyer who has experience in these programs and can explain how they may benefit you.

Stranger Danger: Scary Story From Last Night :/
This happened to me last night and I hope that sharing my story will remind you to be careful, even if you feel very safe in your home. I live in Korea which is a ridiculously safe country. After 4 years I haven't even had anyone (other than one asshole american) cat call me. But a few months ago I had a man try to follow me home. He looked like he was not all there in the head, and I noticed him before I was anywhere near my home and was able to scare him back to where he came from. Last night though I had another creepy experience that could have been any number of things, but it reminded me to be very careful. I live in an apartment building here in Seoul and I know everyone who lives on my floor (there arent that many of us) so I can usually tell who is coming down the hall based on their footsteps. I was waiting for my boyfriend to come over and usually I open the door for him right when he arrives since our key pad is hard to use. Most apartments in Korea use a keypad like this to open the door, not a real key. Usually even though I always beat him to it, my boyfriend at least tries to open the door. But when I heard footsteps come down the hallway and stop at my door, I was surprised he didnt start pressing buttons. For some reason I looked out the peephole and saw the shoulder of a man (i think) with a puffy winter jacket on outside my door. It was similar to my boyfriend so I thought maybe he was just reading an email or something (he can be a scatter brain haha) and paused before opening the door. I waited without saying anything because I usually try to surprise him at the door. But the man stayed still for so long that the lights went off in our hallway (most lights in Korean apartment hallways are motion censored so if theres no movement in the hallway for a while, they go off. I thought that was SUPER weird so I knocked on my door to make the man do something (i still thought it could be my boyfriend) Thats when he disappeared/walked away. At this point I cant remember if I actually saw him turn and move away or if I looked away and when I looked back he was gone. Either way I was freaked out. I texted my boyfriend asking if that was him, and saw I had missed a message from him asking if I wanted snacks. I thought then maybe he came to my home but went back out to grab snacks. Maybe 30 seconds later he was unlocking my door and apologizing for being late. That wasn't him at the door only a minute before. It could have been an innocent mistake, someone got the wrong room number or something, but something about the way they just stood there not moving for so long gave me the creeps. I want to encourage all of you to, even if you're expecting someone at your door, to check first and ask who it is. Needless to say, I slept with the extra lock on my door last night.
Significant COVID-19 Impact on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Diagnostics in Healthcare Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Diagnostics in Healthcare Industry The novel coronavirus has profoundly impacted all fields, including healthcare, medical device services, automotive, pharmaceutical and many others. This pandemic has led to shutdowns of mass production and disruptions in the supply chain that have impacted the economies of virtually every nation in the world. The pandemic also affected the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic industry. The patient's fear of contracting the virus compels patients to stay home instead of undergoing diagnosis and treatment. During the COVID-19 pandemic, countries worldwide witnessed a large number of patients suffering from COVID-19 and post COVID-19 complications such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and kidney problems. As the COVID-19 cases were rising, the healthcare system had shifted its focus in curbing the disease, thereby delaying diagnosis and treatment of other chronic conditions as cancer. Thus, a negative impact is expected on the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market due to the pandemic scenario As a result, the hospitals and clinics were filled up with COVID-19 patients and less preference was given to non-small cell lung cancer patients. Moreover, limited access to clinics, social distancing, the lockdown of the population, which results in a slow-down in patient flow and referrals, has also impacted the market growth. However, with the cases decreasing in number and increase in vaccination against COVID-19 across the globe, the market for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market may get a boost due to some relaxation in COVID-19 cases, which will result in increased demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnosis with patients coming forward to clinics and hospitals for treatment. IMPACT ON DEMAND Various screening, diagnostic and surgical procedures were restricted and at hospitals and cancer treatment centers, which resulted in disruptions in the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. However, even during the pandemic, the lung cancer cases were subsequent, which is expected to increase the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. For instance, · According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, lung cancer accounted for 2,206 771 deaths among both sexes. The lung cancer statistics include both small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. About 13% of all lung cancers are small cell lung cancer and 84% are non-small cell lung cancer. This proves an increase in the number of non-small cell lung cancer patients even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, according to the American Cancer Society, Inc., lung cancer patients are likely to get infected with coronavirus because of the changes in their immune system that control their body's defense systems. For instance, · According to a study published in PubMed, patients with lung cancer are at an increased risk of becoming infected with the virus and experience higher morbidity and mortality than the general population Thus, having cancer such as non-small cell lung cancer may also increase the risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as the cancer therapy treatment reduce the immune system of the body. . This has increased the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic tools, especially in cancer-dedicated hospitals and surgical centres, where all the patients of non-small cell lung cancer-related problems are treated. Thus, with the increased lung cancer cases, the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic will increase in the coming years. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The supply chain was widely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic as acute restrictions and lockdowns produced many urgent situations in the early days of the pandemic, which needed immediate attention. The supply chain disruption has transformed many organizations' business environments, including the supply chain of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. The supply chain disruption impacted the Asia-Pacific region initially, especially the demand from China due to challenges from restricted movement and quarantine period. For instance, · According to the FDA, 63 manufacturers representing 72 facilities in China that produce essential medical devices face obstacles in manufacturing medical devices and their supply, owing to citing workforce challenges and the necessary quarantine of workers. Moreover, closing borders of various countries is anticipated to diminish the supply chain business environment, as it may hamper export of the medical supplies To minimize supply chain crises, the FDA has been firmly monitoring the supply chain with the assumption that the COVID-19 outbreak may adversely impact the supply chain of medical products, including shortages of critical medical products in the U.S. or potential disruptions in supply chains. Many organizations and countries are looking forward to improving and diversified supply chain models in all aspects to manage such a crucial situation. A diversified supply chain model anticipated minimizing the export of medical products as well as increase end-to-end visibility. For instance, · The Brazilian government published a resolution eliminating import taxes on 141 medical products and hospital equipment · The European Commission made a decision for helping Member States affected by the pandemic to suspend customs duties and VAT on medical devices temporarily · Federal indirect tax body the Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council of India has decided to cut taxes on medical supplies IMPACT ON PRICE The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic does not significantly impact the global non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market. But it is estimated that if COVID-19 continues to spread for a prolonged period, then the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic equipment and devices will highly upsurge for top importer countries. For therapies and the diagnostic United States solicit the huge number of medical devices, followed by China and Japan. For instance, · According to the General Administration of Customs (GAC), China's exports of medical machinery and devices increased 40.5 percent in 2020 compared to the previous year, reaching USD 18.138 billion · According to the World Trade Organisation, the U.S. imports and exports of medical goods increased by 16 %, reaching USD 1,139.00 billion in value Henceforth for diagnosis, dependency of these countries highly increases on other exporters and many countries solely depend on China and the U.S. for the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic equipment. Consequently, this may lead to a rise in the overall non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic cost. This increase in the price of the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostic may hamper the market growth if it continues to be the same. Additionally, if the lockdown continues to stretch for a long period, then import of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market is estimated to get more restricted, which may further lead to a rise in the price of the these devices CONCLUSION It is estimated that the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has significantly impacted the growth of non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market as the rising cases of COVID-19 worldwide the healthcare system had shifted its focus in curbing the disease, thereby resulting in the delay of diagnosis and treatment of non-small cell lung cancer. Thus, a negative impact is expected on the non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market due to the pandemic scenario. However, with the increase in lung cancer patients worldwide, the demand for non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics will increase in the coming years. Moreover, poor lifestyle, smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity and other factors will contribute to the incidence of chronic disease such as lung cancer, including non-small cell lung, which is anticipated to increase the global non-small cell lung cancer diagnostics market in the coming years.
6 Easy Ways To A Smooth Neck
Because the skin on your neck is some of the thinnest on your body, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Here are six ways to make your neck look younger and address everything from sun damage to sagging on this delicate area. 1. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. Your dermatologist will agree that a nickel-sized amount of sunscreen applied to your neck and chest every day will help prevent collagen breakdown and the formation of sunspots. Don't forget to massage the sides and back of your neck. 2. MAINTAIN YOUR SKIN'S MOISTURIZATION. Again, the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so keeping the area hydrated is essential for a smoother overall texture. Look for peptide-containing creams (which can help stimulate new collagen growth) and apply them in gentle, upward strokes from your chest to your jawline. 3. RECLAIM YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP. Do you always wake up with pillow lines on the side of your neck? Apply one of these silicone patches before going to bed to keep your skin from crinkling while you sleep. You'll wake up with a smoother neck and less chance of further damage. 4. FOCUS ON CORRECT POSTURE. The amount of time we spend looking down at our phones and screens has resulted in what we now refer to as "tech neck." The simplest solution would be to limit screen time entirely, but more realistically, you should keep everything as close to eye level as possible to avoid unnecessary wrinkling. 5. GIVE LASER TREATMENTS A GO AHEAD. Still have fine lines on your neck? Fraxel lasers, stimulate your body's natural repair process to promote collagen growth. Fraxel can also be used to treat any dark spots or broken capillaries in the area, giving you a more even complexion. 6. ULTRASOUND TREATMENT FOR SERIOUS REPAIR. Ultherapy or Ultracel is your best non-surgical option for deeper, more stubborn lines and sagging. The FDA-approved treatment uses heat generated by focused sonic waves to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Take note that the effect is gradual, and most patients notice a lifting effect three to six months after the initial treatment, so be patient.
Lessons from a UK Spouse Visa Application
While my Immigration lawyer friend was still dating his wife, he was worried about many things like impressing her, not making a fool of himself, etc. One thing he wasn’t worried about was the prices of the Spouse Visa UK or the tedious spouse visa application rules. However, after a dramatic movie-like romance, they got married, pregnant, and decided to maneuver to the United Kingdom, to make sure that their child could have the life and therefore the future my friend always dream of. He tells me that having spent numerous years asking his clients to prevent crying in his office, he was now within the ir exact situation: crying in the plan to inform his newly married wife why the United Kingdom Spouse Visa was causing such an enormous roadblock to their family plans. In the next several days, he honed his application with a fine-tooth comb and reached several lessons. the primary and most vital lesson he says he would describe to any future applicant is as follows: UK Spouse visas are sinfully expensive The UK spouse visa fee is £3,395, including the £1,872 immigration health surcharge. additionally, the waiting times include anything from a couple of too many months for entry clearance applications. If you would like to buy the appliance to be expedited, it'll cost you another £590, approx. The total cost of the visa (a period of two and a half years) was £3,985. there'll be similar levels of costs when leave granted is nearing to finish and therefore the application will need to be extended, or if the applicant chooses to eventually choose a settlement. This cost figure doesn't include legal fees (for the people that aren't immigration lawyers like my friend) or the several flights required to still live alongside your spouse while keeping a tab on the immigration rules of two different countries. Conclusion: take care about where you spend your legal fees. Like my friend painfully learned, it costs tons of cash to urge through a spouse visa application successfully. Therefore, it's imperative that you simply use your money wisely wherever you’ll, like hiring the sort of legal advisors which will get your visa application done right the primary try itself.

What is the current impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on commercial and consumer contracts?
The Covid-19 pandemic is still interfering heavily with international trade creating disruptions and delays on an unprecedented scale. The world has completed more than one year since the Covid-19 outbreak. However, its far-reaching effects are still far from over. Pandemic outbreaks have occurred before on numerous occasions, and they have had a crippling effect on the world economy. However, never before the world has collectively experienced such bottleneck effect on international trade and shipping. The underlying causes are numerous and include factory closures, supply shortage, transit and payment delays, to name a few. Many businesses have been pushed to the brink of bankruptcy in increasing numbers worldwide. In this article, we would identify several common legal and commercial issues. We would like to illustrate the legal measures applicable in the UAE in case of non -performance of commercial and consumer contracts on account of the pandemic. One of the most common after-effects of the pandemic has been the 'contractual non -performance' on account of conditions that are beyond the control of the contractual parties or, in other words "Force majeure conditions". The word Force majeure is a French term that literally means "greater force", and in legal terms, it refers to 'unforeseeable circumstances that prevent someone from fulfilling a contract'. The Federal law no. 5 of 1985 and its amendments on the Civil Transactions (UAE Civil code) states ‘force majeure' as follows: Article 273 In bilateral contracts, if a force majeure arises that makes the performance of the obligation impossible, the corresponding obligation shall be extinguished and the contract ipso facto rescinded. If the impossibility is partial, the consideration for the impossible part shall be extinguished. This shall also apply to the provisional impossibility in continuous contracts. In both instances, the creditor may rescind the contract provided the debtor has knowledge thereof. Further, articles 274- 275 states the legal position if a force majeure condition is established as per article 273. Article 274 When a contract is or shall be rescinded, the two contracting parties shall be reinstated to their former position prior to contracting, and in case this is impossible, the Court may award damages. Article 275 If the contract is dissolved on the grounds of nullity, rescission or for any other reason, and both contracting parties have to return what they have taken possession of, each one of them may retain what he has received, as long as the other party did not restitute what he has received from him, or did not submit a guarantee for its restitution. Despite the recognition of force majeure conditions under the UAE law, the parties to a contract should not be too quick to rely on the said general principle and should try to resolve the issues on mutual terms. As pursuant to Article 267 of the Civil code, "If a contract is valid and binding, none of the contracting parties may revoke, modify or rescind it except by mutual consent, order of the court or a law provision". UAE courts generally interpret force majeure conditions restrictively for each case as per its unique facts and circumstances. In addition, the UAE law imposes each party to confer with the good faith principle and to fulfil their contractual obligations.
How COVID-19 Impacted on Oral Care in Healthcare Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Oral Care in Healthcare Industry OVERVIEW The COVID-19 pandemic has posed a complex challenge in front of several healthcare companies and proved to be an unprecedented global health threat. This global pandemic has emerged in December 2019 which has been proved as a global pandemic by WHO in March 2020. With the development and introduction of novel coronavirus vaccine, COVID-19 cases have been declined but with the development of mutant coronavirus strain, the overall COVID-19 cases have been surged and are increasing at a rapid rate in India, and the U.K, and other European countries. The most common symptoms associated with this include cough, fever, diarrhea, sore throat, and loss of smell or taste. Patients affected with COVID-19 are at increased risk of developing hepatic manifestations and also experiences damage to liver tissues. COVID-19 has led to the closure and reduced hours of dental practices except for emergency and urgent services, limiting routine care and prevention. Dental care includes aerosol-generating procedures that can increase viral transmission. The pandemic offers an opportunity for the dental profession to shift more toward non-aerosolizing, prevention-centric approaches to care and away from surgical interventions. Direct effects of COVID-19 on oral health include ageusia (an official symptom of COVID-19) and case reports of vesiculobullous lesions and necrotizing periodontal disease. oral care product has a wide portfolio such as breath Fresheners, Mouth Wash, Dental Floss, among other products. The Article here shows the impact of COVID-19 on the oral care market. IMPACT ON PRICE As the mouth is an important place for bacterial colonization due to which it is necessary to use the product for oral hygiene. With the sudden increase in COVID-19 cases, people's concerns for better health had also increased and the link between oral health and COVID-19 infection also expand the health to oral. As India relies on China for 70% of API’s intermediates and bulk ingredients, COVID -19 is expected to hike the price of the ingredient used for an oral care product For instance, · In the year 2021, As Proctor & Gamble announced the third-quarter result in which the net sales increase by 5 %, and also mentioned that they are planning for a price hike in certain product divisions. This step is taken seeking to recover the revenue loss during COVID-19. · According to GlaxoSmithKline plc, the cost of dental consultation and treatment was cited as the concerning factor IMPACT ON DEMAND The coronavirus has affected the various regions of the world and caused the widespread closure of companies and local manufacturing plants. This lockdown and isolation have adversely impacted global economic activity. As studies around the world have shown the improving oral hygiene is expected to increase the chance of generating demand for the product. THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 INFECTION ON ORAL CARE The rising awareness of oral hygiene COVID-19 has increased the demand for a product requires for oral care as the increasing studies for SARS-COV-2 indicated that proper oral hygiene has been reported to decrease the chances of infection which increases the demand for mouth wash, oral povidone solution, novel gargle solution. · However, due to restrictions and aims to reduce COVID-19 transmission, 30% of respondents had visited a dentist less frequently during the pandemic The second cause of increasing demand for oral care products is that approximately 90% of the product used in oral care are over the counter which can be added as the plus point in maintaining the demand for oral care products. The market players in oral care are also focused on the research to bring novel products to interstate commerce. For instance, · Microbac Laboratories, an independent and internationally accredited testing facility worked on behalf of Unilever Research Laboratories, has found that rinsing with mouthwash containing CPC Technology for 30 seconds is effective in reducing the viral load of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, by 99.9%. This type of research surge the demand for the oral product · Colgate-Palmolive President mentioned in an interview that they have seen elevated demand for oral care related to viruses, which also boosted the innovative growth related to a premium product This suggests that the increasing prevalence of COVID-19 poses precautionary measures due to which the global population started to take concern for their health hence enhance the demand for oral care. This thus signifies that COVID-19 is accelerating the demand of the oral care market. IMPACT ON SUPPLY The COVID 19 pandemic has affected and badly disrupted the global drug supply chain due to the continuous shut down of manufacturing facilities and restrictions imposed by the government over import and export activities. As per global sources, it was found that the beauty care business is still facing a crisis due to COVID-19. However, oral care market players are in a strong position. The two main leaders Colgate-Palmolive and Johnson and Johnson had seen a lift in sales in Q1 2020. Colgate-Palmoliva has net sales of USD 415 million for Q3 2020, up by 5.5% from the previous year. The surge of demand for oral care increased during COVID-19 however, the global restriction, and state-wise travel restriction has caused challenges for the market player. Moreover, there are many local players also in the oral care market that continued to fulfill the demand in case of any disruption. Oral care is categorized under essential need products which leads to the easy flow of these products. The main challenges during the pandemic is the supply of API’s and Ingredient or excipient used in toothpaste, as China holds the major share in API’s and other chemicals used in oral care and global restriction has somehow affected the supply chain for these products too. This, thus signifies that due to continuous lockdown and several restrictions by government authorities the companies and patients are facing disruption of the supply chain for oral care. However, oral care is categorized under essential care which lowers the effect of supply chain disruption during COVID-19. STRATEGIC DECISIONS OF MANUFACTURERS Collaboration, agreements, strategic initiatives, product launches by market players such as Colgate Palmolive, Hindustan Unilever among others in the oral care market will help them to expand their product portfolio and to provide appropriate products to the consumer. This in turn will lead to increased product sales and hence will put a positive impact on the overall company’s revenue. Oral Care product manufacturing companies are taking so many strategic decisions to cope up with the current scenario of COVID-19. The companies engaged in the manufacturing of toothpaste, mouth wash, gargle solutions among others are adopting several initiatives to accelerate the development of newer products and efficiently supply the product to different end-users. Companies have done collaboration and product launches between 2019 -2020 which supports the sustainable growth in the oral care market For instance, · In September 2020, Colgate Palmolive launched as first-ever vedshakti mouth protect spray, seeking their focus on oral hygiene during COVID-19. · Hindustan Unilever also planned to launch a mouth wash with 99 % in reducing SARS-COV-2 virus and has recently shared the preliminary data. · In April 2020, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Limited (India) merged with Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL), with HUL responsible for the distribution of GSK’s Consumer Healthcare brands in India, including its leading oral healthcare brand, Sensodyne. · In April 2020, Perrigo Company plc (Ireland) completed the acquisition of the oral care assets of High Ridge Brands (US), which includes Dr. Fresh, LLC. · In December 2019, Colgate-Palmolive Company launched Colgate Optic White Renewal Tooth Paste. · In 2020, Colgate-Palmolive comes up with a recyclable toothpaste tube which will increase the interest of the population and surge the demand for the product leading to growth in revenue of the company Thus, companies operating in the oral care market are adopting several strategies, including collaboration, agreements, acquisition, and market expansion to enhance their business. These strategic decisions by the companies are expected to provide significant opportunities for the market players operating in the oral care market. CONCLUSION As the pandemic of COVID-19 has resulted in several restrictions throughout the borders but still, manufacturers of oral care can manage their stocks. Various manufacturers have allowed their manufacturers to work in a clean and safe environment to boost up the production of oral care categorized under essential need products at various manufacturing facilities across several regions of the world helping them to maintain a continuous supply chain.

I Was Stalked and Filmed on a Subway? :(
Recently I had a very creepy experience on the subway. A had a very odd man sit next to me and start filming me secretly (though obviously not so secretly since I noticed) He also tried to follow me but luckily I tricked him. For more info you can check the video below. **this is not common AT ALL in Korea, it only happened to me in Seoul because that's where I live. This could, and does, happen all over the world no matter what culture~** What I hope you take from this: 1. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. If someone sits next to you (even if it seems totally normal) just take a millisecond to recognize that - don't just stay zoned in on your phone. 2. If you feel uncomfortable - get up and move. I didn't do this but I should have. I didn't need to "prove" he really was creepy, regardless of if he was or not, I have every right to just move away. 3. If someone made you feel uncomfortable, trust your gut and keep an eye on them in some way. If I hadn't noticed him earlier, he might have followed me off the train without me knowing. 4. Let someone know where you are and what was up. Even if its just texting a close friend that is dependable "hey I'm at XYZ bus stop, there was a weird guy on the bus lol" just so someone knows. In case something happens to you, it could help people find you. 5. If you see something weird happening to another girl, try to do something. When I see guys getting too close to girls on crowded trains I always try to make it seem like I'm with the girl too so he's outnumbered, or I stare them down so they know they aren't being sneaky. Be safe out there everyone, and just be alert :)

Significant COVID-19 Impact on Nivolumab in Healthcare Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Nivolumab in Healthcare Industry COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has affected the day-to-day life of people and has slowed down the economies worldwide. The pandemic has affected millions of people who either got sick or died due to the spread of this disease. Within a few months, coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which originated from China, became a pandemic, with more than 30 million people being infected till date. There are now numerous vaccines in use. The first mass vaccination program commenced in early December 2020, and as of 15 February 2021, 175.3 million vaccine doses have been administered. There is an added complexity because of COVID-19 diagnosis in cancer patients, particularly while on active treatment with immunotherapy like nivolumab. COVID-19 could cause more harm to cancer patients. In order to prevent the infection from spreading, the patient’s number and new diagnosis have been less during the COVID 19. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a dramatic loss of human life worldwide and presents an unprecedented challenge to public health, food systems, and the world of work. Still, there is an increase in the demand for cancer treatment with immunotherapy drugs like nivolumab during the second quarter of 2020 with the rise in awareness regarding health and new product launches in countries. IMPACT ON PRICE COVID-19 is significantly decreasing commercial activity in every area of the business sector. The economy has been decreased during the pandemic with the restricted and disrupted supply and sales of products and devices. The cost of medication and treatment of nivolumab has been increased due to the increasing demand for this drug during COVID-19. This contributed to the increased expenses and prices of immunotherapy drugs. Changes in the economy and other factors have caused consequences, including the decrease in the sales of the drug in some countries such as the U.S. With the rise of COVID-19 and decrease in new patients has also contributed to the increased cost and priced of some products and medication. · The price of Opdivo (nivolumab) drug which is a most common therapy treatment for various type of cancer or tumor have been increased to USD 1,172 for a supply of 4 milliliters of injection in 2020 with the rise in demand and increasing patients population in the second quarter of 2020. IMPACT ON DEMAND Global economic development in 2020 has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 has given rise to risks such as a prolonged, significant decline in global demand as well as unfavorable geopolitical and macroeconomic effects. The coronavirus pandemic has provoked many strategical actions among healthcare providers on how to manage cancer patients when faced with the threat of severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. There has been a decrease in demand for nivolumab in some countries like the U.S., whereas many countries have seen an increase in sales with the rise in demand for the treatment and new cancer patients. With the rise in demand for the drug, FDA has provided approval to various drugs related to the immunotherapy nivolumab. For instance- · For the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, the U.S. revenues of nivolumab decreased to 9% in 2020 due to lower demand caused by declining second-line eligibility across tumor indications and lower demand from COVID-19 (primarily lower new patient starts and patient visits). The U.S. has seen a decrease in sales in the first quarter of 2020. · However, the international revenues for nivolumab were increased up to 7% in 2020 due to higher demand as a result of additional indication launches in some countries with rising cancer patients globally. · In May 2021 -- Bristol-Myers Squibb Company has today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had approved their Opdivo (nivolumab, injection for intravenous use) for the adjuvant treatment of completely resected esophageal or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer. · Similarly, FDA has approved Opdivo (nivolumab) for treating different types of cancer in many countries via various market players due to the rise in demand for this drug. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The pandemic and COVID-19 have affected every business activity in which the supply chain was affected the most. Because of the pertinacious COVID-19 lockdown, sanctions have been forced by administrations of different nations. These limitations and boundaries across the nation’s borders prompted a diminishing stockpile because of restricted materials and labor force and the halting of the assembly line. The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed many organizations’ business environments; supply availability has been hampered by a number of issues, including export and travel restrictions by some producing countries, and the lockdown has forced suppliers to (temporarily) shut down. The supply of nivolumab medication has a slight decrease in sales during the first quarter of 2020, partly due to negative factors mentioned above in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, which particularly didn’t affect the overall yearly revenue. The supply chain and demand were positively affected by the COVID 19. The sales and supply of the drugs have been increased with the rise in demand for the drugs and diagnosis. Many major manufacturing companies have launched their drugs in different countries to fulfill the demand, and the government has provided approval for the sales of the drug nivolumab. For instance- Despite the pandemic, many market player of nivolumab has increased their sales globally. This is due to the ongoing increase in the patient population and rising awareness regarding their health. · The sales of ONO pharmaceuticals have been increased in the year 2020 as compared to 2019, which is 2656.05 USD Million in 2019 and 2809.23 USD million. · Similarly, sales of the drug Opdivo (Nivolumab) from the manufacturing company Bristol Myers Squibb Company have been increased globally (except the U.S.) from USD 2,860 million in 2019 to USD 3,047 million in 2020. This increase in sales in both of the major market players is due to the increase in cancer patients and the use of drugs in all areas of cancer. There is an increase in the sales of this nivolumab with the rise in prevalence of disease and early diagnosis & treatment. STRATEGIC DECISIONS BY MANUFACTURERS To deal with the COVID-19 outbreak challenges and increasing demand for the drugs, many market players are creating new strategies such as new product development, telemedicine, and a different program to support patients and to raise their sales. It is predicted that these strategies are anticipated to escalate up the company revenue and its growth in the forecasted period. The government has provided drug FDA approvals of nivolumab for the treatment of cancer. For instance, · In May 2020, Bristol Myers Company announced that Opdivo (nivolumab) 3 mg/kg plus Yervoy (ipilimumab) 1 mg/kg (injections for intravenous use) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the first-line treatment of adult patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). · There are several ongoing potentially registrational studies that have been conducted by different manufacturing companies for Opdivo for the treatment of different tumor types and disease areas, in combination with various anti-cancer agents · Also, there are various ongoing clinical trials conducting on nivolumab with the combination of various anti-cancer agents and others to treat various types of cancer to decrease the demand for cancer treatment and to provide patients with more advanced drugs. For instance · In Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, ONO pharmaceuticals are co-developing this drug nivolumab with the Bristol Myers Company CONCLUSION As the pandemic of COVID-19 resulted in several restrictions throughout the borders, still, manufacturers and market players were able to manage their sales and revenue of oncology and drug nivolumab. Various manufacturers allowed their workers to work in a clean and safe environment so as to boost up the production at various manufacturing facilities across several regions of the world, thus, helping them to maintain a continuous supply chain with the increasing demand. Market players have come up with better strategies which have also created a positive impact on the growth of the nivolumab market globally.
YouTuber Films Suicide Victim, Doesn't Get Why His Jokes Arent Funny
[tw: mentions suicide] This is Logan Paul, YouTuber and brother of Jake Paul and equally influential YouTuber. He has over 15 million subscribers and makes videos about pranks, extreme sports, and basically living off of all the money he makes. Most of his fans are under the age of 17. He has been posting a video every single day for over a year and plenty have been controversial (one of his most successful videos is when he reacts to seeing color for the first time, but then he later admitted that he lied about being color blind) This week though, even his fans have said he has gone too far. He is currently in Japan and making videos about his trip, but he and his friends headed to Aokigahara, also known as Japan's suicide forest. It's the most popular place to tortured people to end their lives. It is known for its beauty so people do go there just to see the nature, but they went into the restricted section. They go on a visit to the forest intending to focus on the "haunted" aspect of it, he says in the video. After walking a short distance into the forest, the group come across a body. The group is filmed approaching the body, which is shown in several close-ups where only the face is blurred out. A member of the group is heard off camera saying he "doesn't feel good". Paul then asks him: "What, you never stand next to a dead guy?" He then laughs. He then took the time to pose with the man (who is revealed to have just died a few hours before due to the color of his body) in order to get the perfect thumbnail and then posted it on his channel. This is literally what the thumbnail image was: It got over 6 million views. Later in the video they joked that YouTube wouldn't put ads on a video with a dead guy so they might as well take sake shots too (YT has a new strict algorithm about what kind of content can make money and obviously suicide isnt one of them) After the video got a ton of criticism, he took the video down and issued this half ass apology: He later posted a video apology but come on. This is just disgusting. I am so sorry to the family of that victim and to anyone who has been affected by suicide. There is NO excuse for what he did. If it was a live stream and an accident I could understand if he was overwhelmed, forgot to turn the camera off, etc. But this was filmed, edited, and uploaded. He zoomed in and took from different angles. He posed for pictures with the body. He is trash. If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please visit https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ for a way out of depression.
