Posted By:ElSid, 6/28/2014 1:07:26 PM

Washington - The Food and Drug Administration has approved a long-delayed inhalable diabetes medication to help patients control their blood sugar levels during meals. The FDA cleared MannKind Corp.´s Afrezza, a fast-acting form of insulin, for adults with the most common form of diabetes, which affects more than 25 million Americans. Friday´s approval comes more than three years after the agency first asked MannKind to run additional clinical studies on the drug. Demand for diabetes treatments is surging globally as the prevalence of obesity explodes. According to the World Health Organization, roughly 347 million people

Comments:
Good news for diabetic sufferers. A simpler way to medicate. Hopefully, cost not prohibitive.

Based on the number of such quickly approved diabetic pills and insulin substitutes that are now recalled I will stick with my regular insulin product that has proven reliable.

This new method of delivery will no doubt trickle down to the street drug crowd.

ISIS fears in Lebanon on the rise
Asharq Al-Awsat [Saudia Arabia], by Nazeer Rida *    Original Article
Posted By: ElSid- 6/28/2014 1:58:58 PM     Post Reply
Beirut - Fears continue to spread in Lebanon about the presence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) after the Sunni militant group claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on a central Beirut hotel, the third such attack in two weeks. The militant group has expanded its operations in both Syria and Iraq, giving rise to fears that it could also seek to start an insurgency against the Lebanese government at a time when the country still has no president. In a statement published on Friday, ISIS announced that a Saudi suicide bomber had attacked the Duroy Hotel in central Beirut. Three police officers were wounded in the attack.

Man flips drone fear on its head,
uses technology to monitor L.A. cops

A California man decided to turn the fear that drones will be abused by law enforcement officials on its head by using the technology to monitor police behavior. “I don’t think it’s a substitute for a hand-held camera, but it’s definitely a complement,” Daniel Saulmon of Torrance told the Los Angeles Times. Mr. Saulmon said he has been filming police behavior with the technology for a month, typically monitoring DUI checkpoints to make sure police aren’t abusing their power. He added that he is careful not to run afoul of any laws while filming. “I have to use common sense with it,” Saulmon said. “It’s easy to fly.

It begins in the morning. The victim awakens feeling unwell. They’re without appetite. Their head aches. Sore throat. Fever. Chills. (Snip) The danger has never been greater in West Africa as the worst Ebola outbreak on record continues its deadly sweep of jungles and cities, hopping national borders and frustrating hundreds of doctors who parachuted in to vanquish the disease but have so far failed. As of Thursday, the pandemic with a 90 percent mortality rate has killed more than 367 people and afflicted 635 more in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, where it is believed to have begun. The toll is greater than the 280 dead in 1976,

Barnes & Noble, the struggling bookseller, saw its shares jump 8% Wednesday after saying it will spin off its Nook digital book business. The Nook business, which produced digital readers that were a constant also-ran versus offerings from Amazon, Google and Apple, required heavy investments from the company that it was ill-prepared to afford.

Former presidential contender Newt Gingrich has found a similarity between former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and reality television starlet Kim Kardashian: Neither dances well in front of others. Mr. Gingrich found the likeness while discussing on CNN’s “Crossfire” former President Bill Clinton’s defense of his wife and her comments that the family was “dead broke” when they exited the White House. “You have to understand the problem Bill Clinton has,” Mr. Gingrich said, Politico reported. “Bill is to politics what Fred Astaire is to dancing — he is just automatically amazing and he wants to have Ginger Rogers

Two senior Veterans Affairs Department officials will be stepping down this week as a personnel overhaul continues in the wake of the resignation of former VA secretary Eric K. Shinseki. Will Gunn, who has served as VA general counsel since 2009, will be stepping down from a job he’s held since the start of the Obama administration. And Robert Jesse, currently the acting undersecretary for the Veterans Health Administration, will be stepping down and rejoining the department’s medical ranks. The forthcoming changes are according to two people familiar with the shakeup who were not authorized to speak publicly about them.

Bill would let winemaking students
under 21 taste their work

On what she expects will be the "most exciting day of her life" next month, Jaclyn Cubillas will probably be working on a lush Northern California vineyard, surrounded by grapes destined to become fine Syrah and Zinfandel. (Snip) But it trails New York, Colorado, Florida and Vermont, among others, in one key aspect of the business: College students taking courses in wine production and beer brewing are unable to taste the alcoholic beverages until they are 21, the legal drinking age. That could change under legislation that would lift the underage ban for students enrolled in tasting courses that are required for an associate's or bachelor's degree.

FAFSA apologizes for falling

The meme, one of the Internet’s greatest blessings, is now the Federal Student Aid office’s curse. The Twitter account for FAFSA, the Education Department’s federal financial aid application system used by nearly every college student in the country, sent out a tweet Tuesday night that included a popular meme taken from the hit comedy “Bridesmaids.” (Snip) Beyond violating the most basic “though shalt not make fun of poverty in America” tenant, the tweet also fed into one of the more damaging misconceptions about FAFSA: that it is only a resource for low-income students. FAFSA, of course, is a resource to nearly every student —

Tucson, AZ - One of the five men accused in the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona has been extradited to the United States. Mexican authorities arrested Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza in September 2012. He was extradited Tuesday and pleaded not guilty at an arraignment hearing in federal court in Tucson on Wednesday. One man, Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, has been sentenced in the killing of Brian Terry, who died after a December 2010 shootout. Osorio-Arellanes was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Another man remains in Mexican custody, and two are fugitives. The case brought to light the botched

Buenos Aires, Argentina - President Cristina Fernandez said Argentina can´t comply with U.S. court orders to pay $1.5 billion to winners of a decade-long legal battle over defaulted debt, the position her country was left in Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear her government´s final appeal. Delivering a nationally broadcast address Monday night, Fernandez expressed willingness to negotiate with the winners, but said there is simply no way that Argentina can pay in cash, in full, starting just two weeks from now, which is what the U.S. courts have ordered. "What I cannot do as president is submit the country to such extortion,"

Hillary Clinton continued to justify her high-dollar speaking fees on Friday, telling ABC News’ Ann Compton that all of the money she’s made from colleges over the past year and a half has been donated to her family’s foundation. “All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation,” Clinton said when asked about the criticism she and her husband have faced recently for their wealth.

A charter plane believed to be carrying immigrants arrived this evening at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field, apparently from Texas. Three Homeland Security buses arrived a few minutes later, trailed by numerous law enforcement vehicles. There is no information as to the buses´ destination. Earlier this week, federal officials said that 140 immigrants who had been detained crossing the border in Texas would arrive Friday. But since the blockade by protesters Tuesday at Murrieta, officials have declined to provide information about the movement of the immigrants.

WASHINGTON-- First ladies typically avoid getting into public scraps, but Michelle Obama has jumped into perhaps her biggest battle yet. She´s fighting a House Republican effort to soften a central part of her prized anti-childhood obesity campaign and she says she´s ready "to fight until the bitter end." Mrs. Obama even mocked the GOP effort in an opinion column and argued her case before her Twitter followers. "Remember a few years ago when Congress declared that the sauce on a slice of pizza should count as a vegetable in school lunches?" she wrote in The New York Times. "You don´t have to be

A woman excited about purchasing a home who learned she would be held responsible for the previous owner’s delinquent water bill: all $8,000 of it.

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

Sources inside MSNBC say former White House Spokesman Jay Carney, who recently resigned from his post at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, will likely be headed to MSNBC. Carney is in talks for a contributor position. If it happens, Carney would follow in the natural footsteps of a few other aides to President Obama who were welcomed into the MSNBC family upon leaving their jobs. The last White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, became an MSNBC contributor in May, 2013, while David Axelrod, a top aide to Obama, became one in February 2013.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Which of those solemn promises has Barack H. Obama not betrayed? I can’t think of a single one. If Obama is different from other presidents, it’s not for the color of his skin, which is just a PR hustle to blackmail suckers into proving they aren’t racists. No: Obama will be historic for his fanatical leftism, which has no precedent in American history. The biggest headline

The headline of today’s jobs report, that 288,000 jobs were created in the last month, is positive. At least, it is better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. However, as with most economic reports these days, there is a veneer of good news — but when you look closer, the White House is using the positive headlines to hide the growing deterioration of the American workforce. I’m sure by now people are tired of reading about the bad news, and I’ll admit I am weary of having to blow the whistle and expose the truth every
