World Health Organization tries moving closer to creating a ‘fair pricing’ model Fabrice Coffrini/AFP/Getty Images [email protected] Fresh from a meeting with drug makers, advocacy groups, and government agencies, World Health Organization officials say they are gradually moving closer to a framework for so-called fair pricing for prescription medicines.Although recommendations are not yet forthcoming, the latest meeting builds on efforts that began a year ago and, at the time, identified several key issues to be addressed. A report by an informal advisory group last fall named transparency in pricing and research and development costs; the right of governments to issue compulsory licenses; manipulation of orphan drug designations; medicine shortages; and the merits of value-based pricing.

Home Ericsson targets cloud to open 5G Kavit joined Mobile World Live in May 2015 as Content Editor. He started his journalism career at the Press Association before joining Euromoney’s graduate scheme in April 2010.

It is designed to handle the compute functionality in the RAN, complementing purpose-built baseband offerings in the radio system portfolio.It is further intended to deliver network capabilities for large-scale and centralised 5G deployments, addressing new use cases for indoor, enterprise, stadium and beyond.Ericsson explained operators would also be able to “incrementally” add Cloud RAN capabilities to their existing 5G networks, because it is fully compatible with the vendor’s radio system portfolio, and is compatible with spectrum sharing, non-standalone and standalone 5G.The first stage covers low band 5G “to enable an easy transition to virtualised RAN” using commercial hardware platforms. It will also offer mid-band compatibility in future said Ericsson.Initially complementaryPer Narvinger, head of Product Area Networks at Ericsson, told Mobile World Live in an interview the company pictures the cloud-based solution complementing its traditional radio portfolio initially, but added there was a “long journey” ahead as to whether one “would precede the other”.Indeed, Ericsson has already thrown its support towards open RAN networks, backing itself to be a major player in the technology’s development.Narvinger believes the Cloud RAN would serve as the “foundation” for open innovation in the industry, and suggested Ericsson’s product perhaps had more credibility than rival offerings, given its strong position in the vendor market.Every major customer globally had trialled the cloud solution and the vendor is now developing a “roadmap for commercialisation”, added Narvinger.

Apptopia October report: Asian developers dominate the top new games on iOS and AndroidGames from Asian markets account for nine of the top ten new games on App Store in terms of IAP spendingHaydn TaylorSenior Staff WriterWednesday 7th November 2018Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareMarket intelligence firm Apptopia has revealed the top new games worldwide for October across iOS and Android. In terms of in-app spending, Asia dominates the App Store, with nine out of ten top grossing new games coming from Asian markets. It’s a different story regarding downloads however, where only four out of the top ten new games are from Asian markets. “Apple continues to make inroads in Asia,” said Apptopia. “While its market share of downloads in the continent is not strong, it has been able to tap into the culture’s propensity to spend on mobile.”Despite this, Android still leads in Asian markets with the top new games racking up more downloads and higher in-app purchase revenue. Words Story, Unnie Doll, and Pac-Man: Ralph Breaks the Maze are the standouts for October, managing to break the top ten downloads on both iOS and Android. Regarding in-app spending revenue, only Atelier Online, Bacrett Monster, and Deity made the top ten on both stores. Breaking down new games by category, Arcade and Puzzle lead both the App Store and Google Play. While strategy titles have long proved to be some of the highest grossing games on mobile, it’s not an area many new developers are seeking to exploit.

NFL launches $3M challenge to develop safer helmet for players Devin White injury update: Buccaneers rookie linebacker (knee) leaves game vs. Panthers Both teams had something to prove Thursday.Jameis Winston had to show that he was ready to lead the Buccaneers while Cam Newton had to prove he was ready to return to form as an NFL MVP. Both were coming off forgettable starts but only one was able to turn it around in Week 2. NFL Week 2: Games, players, teams to watch Did the Panthers ruin their playoff chances?This isn’t a first, or second, week overreaction. Now that the Panthers are 0-2, they have a 12% chance of making it to the postseason. The odds — unless they become the 2018 Texans or Seahawks, who made the playoffs despite the dismal start — are not in their favor.Both of Carolina’s losses came at Bank of America Stadium, which isn’t ideal considering four of its next five games are on the road. If wins at home are hard to come by with a struggling Newton and Christian McCaffrey, who has yet to get going, then facing the likes of the Texans and Buccaneers (again) on their turf will be a big test for the team. PRIMETIME PLAYERS MAKE PRIMETIME PLAYS#GoBucs | #TBvsCAR pic.twitter.com/r8mfOdIJid— Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@Buccaneers) September 13, 2019Three takeaways from Buccaneers’ road win vs. PanthersThe ‘Quarterback Whisperer’ finally got to WinstonBruce Arians is known for his ability to fix quarterbacks. He has helped develop Pro Bowl signal-callers Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck and Carson Palmer. Now, Arians is tasked with turning around Winston’s career.Winston, the first overall pick in the 2015 draft, has underperformed after his Pro Bowl rookie season. Since joining the NFL, he has the most turnovers (79) and interceptions (61) in the NFL and is tied for the most fumbles lost (18) and his first game of the 2019 season did not look promising. He threw three interceptions while completing just over 55% of his passes in Sunday’s 31-17 loss.Normally, a quick turnaround to a Thursday night game would fatigue most players. But it seemed to do the opposite for a seemingly energized Winston.He finished the game 16-of-25 passing for 208 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown pass to Chris Godwin.Count ’em 🆙#GoBucs | #BudLightCelly pic.twitter.com/8PP6ZwyrR3— Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@Buccaneers) September 13, 2019Newton shut down by Bucs defenseLike Winston, Newton needed a big night. Unlike Winston, he was unable to do so against a tough Buccaneers defense.Now how much was Newton self-sabotaging and how much was the effort of Tampa Bay, which has turned around under the leadership of Todd Bowles, is up for debate but at the end of the night, Newton was sacked three times and had the ball punched out by the Bucs, who then recovered the fumble. He completed 25 of his 51 passes in the loss.9️⃣8️⃣ ✖️ 9️⃣3️⃣#GoBucs | #TBvsCAR pic.twitter.com/jgf149LB5Z— Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@Buccaneers) September 13, 2019On its own, it could be chalked up to a poor night. But consecutive ineffective games is a troubling sign for the seemingly healthy Newton. Winston was able to lead Tampa Bay to a 20-14 win at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Bucs’ defense helped shut down Newton and company, who had a chance to complete the comeback when they had the ball, trailing by six points, inside the five with time winding down. But a big defensive stop by Tampa Bay sealed the game. Related News

Over 80 cyclists of the London hurling cub are to honour the late Cathal Forde with a 400-mile charity cycle from Highgate in England’s capital to Gort, Co. Galway, starting on July 28 (yesterday) arriving in Gort Co Galway on Sunday evening. All proceeds going to The Cormac Trust and MS Ireland, two charities close to the heart of Cathal’s friends and former team-mates. Gort native Forde, who was part of the first Kilburn side to win a London Senior Hurling title in 2010, died of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) during a training session in Highgate, aged 28, in April 2012. The Cormac Trust is a charity that was set up following the sudden death of All-Ireland winning former Tyrone footballer Cormac McAnallen in 2004. It was largely due to the death of Cormac and subsequent cases, such as with Cathal, that the Irish public became aware of the issue of sudden cardiac death among young people. Cathal’s brothers Niall, Sean and Liam, and cousin Brian are all taking part in the cycle. From the time of Cormac’s death the McAnallen family was keen to direct public attention to these cardiac conditions that cause such sudden deaths. Hence the family, with the assistance of the Tyrone County Board of the GAA, set up the Cormac Trust. The following are its four objects:To raise awareness of sudden cardiac deaths in young people, and its causes;To promote cardiac screening for young people, especially for athletes;To provide education and information to raise awareness at government level and among other authorities as to the value of providing facilities for the screening of young people;To provide automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for sports clubs in the local region, for the use of the entire local community, and to train people in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of defibrillators.If you are interested in speaking with Liam Forde brother of the late Cathal Forde about the cycle or JP O’Neill Manager of The Cormac Trust please contact me on 0879268066.
