Properties include induction of ANALGESIA or NARCOSIS.Nonlinear Dynamics: The study of systems which respond disproportionately (nonlinearly) to initial conditions or perturbing stimuli. Nonlinear systems may exhibit "chaos" which is classically characterized as sensitive dependence on initial conditions. Chaotic systems, while distinguished from more ordered periodic systems, are not random. When their behavior over time is appropriately displayed (in "phase space"), constraints are evident which are described by "strange attractors". Phase space representations of chaotic systems, or strange attractors, usually reveal fractal (FRACTALS) self-similarity across time scales. Natural, including biological, systems often display nonlinear dynamics and chaos.Anesthetics, Intravenous: Ultrashort-acting anesthetics that are used for induction. Loss of consciousness is rapid and induction is pleasant, but there is no muscle relaxation and reflexes frequently are not reduced adequately. Repeated administration results in accumulation and prolongs the recovery time. Since these agents have little if any analgesic activity, they are seldom used alone except in brief minor procedures. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p174)Analgesia, Epidural: The relief of pain without loss of consciousness through the introduction of an analgesic agent into the epidural space of the vertebral canal. It is differentiated from ANESTHESIA, EPIDURAL which refers to the state of insensitivity to sensation.

Diffusion of counterfeit drugs in developing countries and stability of galenics stored for months under different conditions of temperature and relative humidity. (7/15)

AIM: To investigate the diffusion of counterfeit medicines in developing countries and to verify the stability of galenic dosage forms to determine the stability of galenics prepared and stored in developing countries. METHODS: We purchased 221 pharmaceutical samples belonging to different therapeutic classes both in authorized and illegal pharmacies and subjected them to European Pharmacopoeia, 7th ed. quality tests. An UV-visible spectrophotometric assay was used to determine the galenics stability under different conditions of temperature (T) and relative humidity (RH). RESULTS: A substantial percentage of samples was substandard (52%) and thus had to be considered as counterfeit. Stability tests for galenics showed that the tested dosage forms were stable for 24 months under "standard" (t=25+/-2 degrees C, RH=50+/-5%) conditions. Under "accelerated" (t=40+/-2 degrees C, RH=50+/-5%) conditions, samples were stable for 3 months provided that they were stored in glass containers. Stability results of samples stored in "accelerated" conditions were similar to those obtained by on site in tropical countries and could so supply precious information on the expected stability of galenics in tropical countries. CONCLUSION: This study gives useful information about the presence of counterfeit medicinal products in the pharmacies of many developing countries. This should serve as an alarm bell and an input for the production of galenics. We recommend setting up of galenic laboratories in developing countries around the globe.  (+info)

Determination of local anesthetics in illegal products using HPLC method with amperometric detection. (8/15)

An HPLC method with amperometric detection was developed for analysis of two local anesthetics (lidocaine and benzocaine) in products for delaying ejaculation illegally marketed in Polish sex shops. Chromatographic elution on an RP column C18 with mobile phase composed of acetate buffer with acetonitrile, provides an optimal separation not only of active substances but also electroactive preservatives which are occasionally added to cosmetic creams (methylparaben and propylparaben). Application of glassy carbon electrode as a working electrode and a procedure with pulsed potential waveforms enables a sensitive, accurate measurement within a relatively short analysis time (250 s). This method has been successfully employed for the determination of local anesthetics in products under investigation. The obtained results show that most samples contained therapeutic concentrations of lidocaine or benzocaine. According to European law, a sale of products containing lidocaine or benzocaine outside the pharmacy sector is forbidden.  (+info)

Introduction. Counterfeit medicines are found everywhere in the world ranging from random mixtures of harmful toxic substances to inactive and ineffective preparations. Some contain a declared, active ingredient and look so similar to the genuine product that they deceive health professionals as well as patients. But in every case, the source of a counterfeit medicine is unknown and its content unreliable. Counterfeit medicines are illegal in Malaysia. They can result in treatment failure or even death. Eliminating them is a considerable public health challenge.. Defination. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines counterfeits medicines as "medicines that are deliberately and fraudulently mislabelled with respect to identity and/or source. Both branded and generic products are subject to counterfeiting. Counterfeit medicines may include products with the correct ingredients or with the wrong ingredients, without active ingredients, with insufficient or too much active ingredient, or with ...
A counterfeit medication or a counterfeit drug is a medication or pharmaceutical product which is produced and sold with the intent to deceptively represent its origin, authenticity or effectiveness. A counterfeit drug may contain inappropriate quantities of active ingredients, or none, may be improperly processed within the body (e.g., absorption by the body), may contain ingredients that are not on the label (which may or may not be harmful), or may be supplied with inaccurate or fake packaging and labeling, as is the case with homeopathic products. Counterfeit drugs are related to pharma fraud. Drug manufacturers and distributors are increasingly investing in countermeasures, such as traceability and authentication technologies, to try to minimise the impact of counterfeit drugs. Patients die after being given countereit drugs that do not cure their condition. Antibiotics with insufficient quantities of an active ingredient add to the problem of antibiotic resistance. Legitimate, correctly ...

Although the exact number of rogue Internet pharmacies is unknown, one estimate suggests that there were over 36,000 in operation as of February 2014, and these rogue sites violate a variety of federal laws. Most operate from abroad, and many illegally ship prescription drugs into the United States that have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including drugs that are counterfeit or are otherwise substandard. Many also illegally sell prescription drugs without a prescription that meets federal and state requirements. Foreign rogue Internet pharmacies use sophisticated methods to evade scrutiny by customs officials and smuggle drugs into the country. Their operators also often violate other laws, including those related to fraud and money laundering.. Rogue Internet pharmacies are often complex, global operations, and federal agencies face substantial challenges investigating and prosecuting those involved. According to federal agency officials, piecing together rogue ...
Nuclear quadrupole resonance spectroscopy or NQR is a chemical analysis technique related to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Unlike NMR, NQR transitions of nuclei can be detected in the absence of a magnetic field, and for this reason NQR spectroscopy is referred to as "zero Field NMR." The NQR resonance is mediated by the interaction of the electric field gradient (EFG) with the quadrupole moment of the nuclear charge distribution. Because the EFG at the location of a nucleus in a given substance is determined primarily by the valence electrons involved in the particular bond with other nearby nuclei, the NQR frequency at which transitions occur is unique for a given substance. A particular NQR frequency in a compound or crystal is proportional to the product of the nuclear quadrupole moment, a property of the nucleus, and the EFG in the neighborhood of the nucleus. It is this product which is termed the nuclear quadrupole coupling constant for a given isotope in a material and can be found ...
The Partnership for Safe Medicines analyzed a report from the Group of 8 about rogue online drug outlets that shows 4,000 of the 18,000 outlets under investigation were tied in some way to Canada; 70,000 fake prescription drugs were discovered in the secure supply chain in the United Kingdom, and 30,000 doses remain unaccounted for; France confiscated 1.2 million doses of fake aspirin hidden in tea last year; Germany found more than 100 outlets offering illegally imported counterfeit cancer drugs in 2010; a Russian network called Glavmed is known for posing as Canadian drug stores and is one of the top-three sources of online antivirus scams..

The sale of counterfeit products is a problem in most countries. Every year, about 7% of world trade, valued at about 280 billion USD, is lost due to counterfeiting. In the information technology sector, products worth an estimated 20 billion USD are currently in circulation. But the huge financial losses incurred by manufacturers and individual customers as a result of the trafficking of fake goods are overshadowed by the tragic human costs: the pharmaceutical industry, and consequently the marketplace, are flooded with counterfeits. In this article, Dora Akunyili warns of the dangers of low public awareness of these potentially lethal products and describes the campaigns and strategies to protect the public in Nigeria and other countries in Africa. ...

Maybe if enough people die we will get the proof we need ...
Here examples of five different types of poison that investigators have found in counterfeit medications.. Heavy Metals: mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, chrome, uranium, strontium, selenium, aluminum A woman living in rural British Columbia, Canada suffered a fatal bout of cardiac arrhythmia as a result of toxic heavy metal poisoning from counterfeit prescription drugs that she purchased online for to treat a her flu infection in 2006. The coroner who examined her case found that the drugs she had taken were contaminated with aluminum, arsenic, selenium, strontium, and uranium. This tragic case is not surprising. A 2010 study found that of the drugs purchased for testing purposes from a fake online pharmacy, 26% contained heavy metals and toxins such as arsenic, cadmium, chrome, lead, and mercury.. POISON IMPACT: Heavy metals can be carcinogenic or toxic to central nervous system, kidneys, liver, skin, bones or teeth.. Actual Poison: Rat poison, boric acid, antifreeze, PCBs and benzopyrenes ...
The World Health Organization secretariat record of a International Medical Products Anti-Counterfeiting Taskforce (IMPACT) meeting that took place 26 March are now available online..

The new documents are from the WHO secretariat and include the meeting agenda [pdf], a and list of participants.. They also include a presentation [pdf] on IMPACT, and overview [pdf] of the activities of IMPACTs working groups, and a WHO presentation [pdf] on "counterfeit" terminology. The terminology presentation does not include the results of a 2009 WHO survey on the national uses of the term "counterfeit medicines," though it does include which countries have responded to a WHO letter inviting them to share that information (IPW, WHO, 11 December 2009)..

In January 2009, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released its annual report on intellectual property rights (IPR) seizure statistics report for fiscal year 2008.. According to CBP, the value of all seized counterfeit and pirated products for the year ending September 30, 2008 was nearly $273 million, an increase of 38 percent over 2007, including a 43 percent increase in seizures of counterfeit electrical products during 2008 over 2007, with a total value of almost $23 million in 2008.. The category for electrical products represented 8 percent of all seizures and ranked fifth among all product categories of counterfeit goods seized. In 2007, the category for electrical products was the third ranked category of seizures but also represented eight percent of all seizures. Seizures of counterfeit batteries totaled $1.8 million. Other electrical articles seized include power adaptors, extension cords, circuit breakers, and lighting products. The customs data indicates that the ...
About half of Afghanistans pharmaceutical imports are smuggled and not subject to quality control, according to a recent report by the Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC), a watchdog assembled by the international community and the Afghan government. The combined value of illegal and legal pharmaceuticals is $700m (£445m) to $880m.. Corruption at customs opened up the country to counterfeit, inferior medicine. Because of its proximity to the largely uncontrolled 1,600-mile border, the biggest market is Nangarhar province and its capital, Jalalabad, where fake drugs seamlessly enter the medicine stock, making it virtually impossible for non-specialists to distinguish between good and bad products.. When donkey carts and motorcycles kick up dust, the dealers cover the drugs with a piece of cloth, but otherwise do little to protect them against the heat and grime.. "There is no policy regarding registration of medical companies in Afghanistan, and no ...
Pharmaceutical products can be of poor quality either because they contain zero correct active ingredient (referred to as "counterfeit") or because they contain a non-zero but incorrect amount of the right active ingredient (referred to as "substandard"). While both types of poor-quality drugs can be dangerous, they differ in health consequence, price, and potential policy remedies. Assessing basic quality of 1437 samples of Ciprofloxacin from 18 low-to-middle-income countries, we aim to understand how price and non-price signals can help distinguish counterfeits, substandard drugs, and passing drugs. Following the Global Pharma Health Fund e.V. Minilab® protocol, we find 9.88% of samples have less than 80% of the correct active ingredient and 41.5% of these failures are counterfeits. Both product registration and chain affiliation of retailers are strong indicators of higher probability to pass in the Minilab test and higher retail price. Within quality failures, chain affiliation is more ...
Whats worse is that worldwide sales of counterfeit drugs are forecasted to reach $75 billion by 2010. This is, in part, due to weak regulatory systems in developing countries, where around 10 to 30 percent of drugs might be fake, according to the journal.. Counterfeiting may have caused the deaths of at least 81 patients in the U.S. after they were treated with a contaminated batch of heparin, a blood-thinning drug.. Last week the FDA told a congressional hearing it believed a dangerous contaminant found in batches of the heparin may have been deliberately added. The contaminant, traced back to a Chinese supplier, was structurally similar to heparin but 100 times cheaper.. The counterfeit drug trade was becoming more difficult to combat even before the tainted heparin was discovered, as criminals were using more sophisticated techniques to bypass standard laboratory tests. For instance, by adding cheaper substances that mimicked genuine drugs.. Substances used to taint medicines varied from ...
The invention relates to a thermal system for determining the authenticity of a pharmaceutical product, said system comprises: (a) a signal generator and heat/cooling source for applying a temperature variation signal to a pharmaceutical product; (b) a thermal apparatus for: (b.1.) following or during an application of said temperature variation signal to an authentic pharmaceutical product, acquiring at predefined controlled conditions an authenticity signature of said authentic product, said authenticity signature comprises at least one temperature measurement of said authentic product, each of said temperature measurements describes the reaction over time of the authentic product to said temperature variation signal; (b.2.) storing said acquired authenticity signature in a memory; and (b.3) for a tested pharmaceutical product that corresponds to said authentic product, and whose authenticity is suspected, and following or during an application of same temperature variation signal to said tested
In closing, our daughter did remain in medical school as a result of our investigation into this matter, however many people would not have the resources to pursue the matter the way my wife and I did in this matter. It was embarassing to our daughter, stressful, expensive in getting the drug analyzed and she could have had her career destroyed due to this medication containing an ingredient that was not suppose to be in it.. I just urge everyone, if your meds are not working or you are seeing some side effects that are not normal, you may want to get it checked out. Twenty to thirty percent of prescriptions filled in the country today can be a counterfeit drug. And if you order through the internet, you stand a 50% chance of getting a counterfeit drug ...

Most people think of crime as something thats easily noticeable. However, consumer goods company Procter & Gamble recently identified 50 different crime rings that deal in an unexpected market: selling counterfeit laundry detergent. The counterfeit dealers advertise five-gallon buckets of popular brands like Tide for an unbelievably cheap price ... despite the fact that Procter & Gamble doesnt even offer their products in that size!. The criminals behind these operations make their money by buying buckets of fake detergent for about $5 each from counterfeiters before selling them to unsuspecting consumers for up to five times the price. But its still detergent, right? While it might pass for the real thing by look and smell, theyre far from the same quality. When tested, the counterfeit detergents are noticeably less effective than the authentic products. Even scarier is the fact that the chemicals used to make the knock-off detergents arent easily identified.. The comparatively low risk of ...
Unique encoding of each of a substantial number of distribution video copies of a program such as a motion picture is produced by altering the images slightly at several pre-selected locations in the program in a uniquely coded pattern. Suspected counterfeits can be compared with an unaltered master video to determine the encoded number for the copy which was counterfeited to enable tracking the source of the counterfeit. Preferably, each frame of several whole scenes is altered at each location by shifting an image so as to make the alterations largely undetectable by counterfeiters but easily detected by comparison with an unaltered master video. Artifacts are inserted in patterns representing a unique number for the program. These supplement the encoding by alteration of images and gives added means to aid in tracing counterfeit copies.
5 ways the fight against counterfeit electronic components is evolving. Most electronics industry professionals agree that the industry is more vigilant and doing a better job of keeping counterfeit electronic components off the plant floor than they were just five or 10 years ago. But they also say that counterfeiters are getting better at their craft and that detection is becoming even harder-key reasons suppliers cant weaken their resolve in the fight against counterfeit parts. A host of recent events, including newly released standards and a long-awaited update to the federal governments requirements for companies who supply equipment containing electronic components to the government, is keeping everyone in the channel on their toes.. "Overall, the supply chain is doing a better job of keeping this stuff out as much as they can-out of the end users supply chains," says Mark Snider, president of ERAI, an association representing independent distributors of electronic components. "But its ...
THE INTERNET is often a source for goods with prices lower than brick-and-mortar shops. But while buying books or clothes online can save money, when it comes to medication, consumers should shop only on legal websites, as otherwise they may be putting their health at risk, experts say.
The adulteration and fraudulent manufacture of medicines is an old problem, vastly aggravated by modern manufacturing and trade. In the last decade, impotent antimicrobial drugs have compromised the treatment of many deadly diseases in poor countries. More recently, negligent production at a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy sickened hundreds of Americans. While the national drugs regulatory authority (hereafter, the regulatory authority) is responsible for the safety of a countrys drug supply, no single country can entirely guarantee this today.. The once common use of the term counterfeit to describe any drug that is not what it claims to be is at the heart of the argument. In a narrow, legal sense a counterfeit drug is one that infringes on a registered trademark. The lay meaning is much broader, including any drug made with intentional deceit. Some generic drug companies and civil society groups object to calling bad medicines counterfeit, seeing it as the deliberate conflation of public ...

The scale of and risk posed by counterfeiting in the electronics industry can be well demonstrated with one example from the Senate Armed Services Committee, which a few years ago uncovered over 1 million counterfeit electronic parts in its supply chains. Counterfeit products were found in computers, in special operations helicopters, in surveillance planes, and even in missiles. As Senator, and former presidential candidate, John McCain said at the time this "risk[ed] our security and the lives of the men and women who protect it.". And it goes beyond anecdotal evidence. While the nature of this being an illegal market means its difficult to put an exact figure on the size of the problem, back in 2002 the FBI estimated that the issue lost US companies alone nearly 20 billion a year, and today figures routinely cited for the global cost are in the hundreds of billions of dollars. And the problem of electronic component counterfeiting, like general counterfeiting, is getting worse.. In 2010, a ...

Neglected disease research is both necessary and expensive. Topping agendas of many public health advocates this year is finding ways to cut costs and create incentives for public and private sector research facilities to focus on finding cures even when there is no market to support them. A related issue is how to ensure that existing drugs get to where they are needed, and whether IP matters - such as counterfeit or customs enforcement policies - help or harm that goal.. Other leading policy issues include anti-competitive behaviour that might delay generic drug entry in the market, the length of data protection, ongoing concerns about pandemic influenza preparedness, counterfeit medicines, and technology transfer..

At the World Health Organization, disagreements at the 18-23 January Executive Board meeting have pushed decision-making on key IP-related programming to the May World Health Assembly, which now has several additional ...
Google allowed rogue online pharmacies to advertise on its site in violation of its own advertising policies, according to one of the companies subpoenaed in the federal investigation of Googles drug ad sales. The investigation, which Google has set aside $500 million to settle, concerns whether Google illegally displayed ads from online pharmacies that operate outside the law by selling counterfeit drugs or by not requiring a prescription. Until early 2010, Google required that all online pharmacies be verified by PharmacyChecker.com, which says it checks the credentials of online pharmacies. But many of the rogue pharmacies that advertised on Google during that period never applied to PharmacyChecker.com, according to Gabriel Levitt, vice president of the verification site. The investigation came to light this week after Google disclosed the $500 million charge in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing. The Food and Drug Administration, the Justice Department and the U.S. attorney for ...

As for the current study, Vorona said it makes sense that the two conditions might be linked "on a physiological basis," perhaps through dopamine. This agent is an alpha-receptor blocker that has not been approved by the FDA for the treatment of ED but has undergone limited clinical testing.

Note: This was originally posted on August 26th 2010. It is being reposted for research blogging.org.. For this one article Im going to postpone the normal dark humor and cheesy puns. This topic is just too sad for jokes. All sources for this piece are linked at the bottom.. A multi-billion dollar underground industry is in existence across the globe that is so heinous it makes the illegal drugs problem look like a playground squabble, yet it is not even explicitly illegal in most countries. This is the counterfeit drugs industry which produces sugar pills complete with packets and leaflets and sells them to unknowing pharmacies in the third world to treat conditions including Aids and Malaria. To date the database containing the details of the circulation of counterfeits is maintained by the drugs industry but is kept secret even from the WHO, the FSA and the FDA, let alone the public.. Fake drugs make up an estimated 20% of sales in the former Soviet Union and 30% of sales in Africa and South ...
The menace of counterfeit currency is a global phenomenon. Related criminal activity has the capability to generate high profits and is often linked to other types of criminal activities such as trafficking in drugs and racketeering. Currency counterfeiters continue to improvise and take advantage of new technologies to keep pace with regular periodical changes in currency design and security features.. Producing counterfeit currency has always been a high profit crime and one that exists ever since money was introduced as a means of exchange. The circulation of counterfeit currency can seriously destabilise a countrys currency and as such represents a serious threat to national economies. The FATF has conducted a study of the money laundering methods used for putting the proceeds of the illicit trade in counterfeit currency into the regular financial system. The study also focuses on how counterfeit currency is used for the purpose of terrorist financing and other crimes. The report identifies ...
Obtaining prescription drugs in the United States can be back-breakingly expensive if you dont have good insurance (or none at all). The lure of cheap online drugs, therefore, can be strong, and its perfectly legal in the U.S. to buy your prescriptions from Canada or other countries. But the Internet prescription drug market, not surprisingly, is enormous and pretty seedy. In 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pulled off a sting operation that targeted 9,600 online pharmacies and seized $41 million in illegal and counterfeit drugs [source: Edney].. There are legitimate online pharmacies, but so many of the illegal ones disguise themselves - through website design and URLs that are very close to those of well-known companies - that it can be very difficult to discern whats what. The red-flag rules we mentioned earlier obviously apply here, and you should also make sure that the site requires a signed prescription from your doctor. Its a bad sign if it doesnt. (Of course, its ...

The European Court of Justice ("ECJ") has given judgment in relation to the long running disputes involving Greek wholesalers and GSK concerning the supply of GSK products for export. The case has previously been considered by the Greek Competition Commission and subsequently by the Greek national courts on claims brought by the wholesalers. Article 82 EC issues were referred by the Greek Court of Appeal to the ECJ. The ECJ has concluded that under Article 82 EC, a dominant undertaking on a relevant market for pharmaceutical products will abuse a dominant position where it refuses to meet ordinary orders from wholesalers in order to put a stop to parallel exports to other Member States carried out by such wholesalers. The crucial question is the meaning of ordinary orders, and the ECJ stated that this is for the national court to establish in the light of the size of the orders in relation to the requirements of the home market and the previous business relations between the dominant undertaking ...

A system for detecting a target substance within a class of explosives and narcotics containing quadrupolar nuclei through the use of nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR). The system applies an RF signal to a coil to excite the substance under test. If the target material is present, an NQR signal will be picked up by the same coil. That signal is compared with known NQR signals in frequency and amplitude. A signal is displayed in an appropriate way if a threshold value of the NQR signal is equalled or exceeded. The coil is tuned by means of an auto-tune feature. Effective RFI shielding is provided to prevent external contaminating signals from being detected by the coil and to prevent RF signals from escaping from the scanner. The invention also includes the method for performing tests with the system.
Professor Marya Lieberman and her group from the university of Notre Dame have developed paper based testing devices based on simple colorimetric chemistry. These devices are used to detect low quality pharmaceuticals, iodizing agents in salt etc. They have used these devices in really a low resource settings like in Kenya, Haiti, Iraq, India etc. The idea is that these devices can be sent out to every house/village to test whether the medicine (commonly used) contain what they are supposed to contain. In developing countries this is a very big problem. Prof Toni Barstiss group from Saint Marys college is also working on paper based colorimetric devices that distinguishes between genuine and low quality anti-malaria ACT (artemisinin combination therapy) medications. The same group has also focused on identifying counterfeit drugs for river blindness. ...

The system consists of a two-dimensional barcode printer on each box that contains tracking information: product code (CIP code), batch number and expiration date. Data Matrix codes are read when drugs are dispensed, improving traceability and enabling automatic detection of falsified or expired products. They also facilitate batch recalls.. Another facet of this Data Matrix identification system is that it provides disabled patients, including blind patients and those with a visual or mental impairment, with the tools to understand what product they are purchasing. The Notiris software can read the information contained in the Data Matrix code by connecting to a specific database that provides the drugs name, dosage and expiration date. The information is given orally and in writing. The product leaflet is now accessible thanks to the software, which has been available to PC, Mac and smartphone users since 2012..

The RFID field has gained visibility due to mandates from Wal-Mart and the Dept. of Defense, but observers note that there are many other factors pushing manufacturers to move from bar codes to RFID tags. A growing number of food-safety groups are demanding tracing technologies, as are the automotive and pharmaceutical industries.. Concerns over disease outbreaks and bio-terrorism have prompted agencies around the globe to call for techniques to trace and recall tainted foods. Australia, the European Union, Canada, and Japan have passed traceability requirements for beef, and the FDA is requiring pharmaceutical companies to improve tracking, partly to reduce the growing problem of counterfeit drugs.. In the auto industry, the Transportation Recall Enhancement Accountability and Documentation Act (TREAD), passed in response to the Ford-Firestone rollover problems of a few years back, is heightening interest in this new technology.

Alcohol consumption is the third leading risk factor for disease and disability in the world and is a major driver of NCDs including cardiovascular diseases, cirrhosis of the liver and various cancers. Harmful alcohol use is also associated with several infectious diseases including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and sexually transmitted infections. Alcohol also causes harm far beyond diminishing the physical and psychological health of the drinker. An intoxicated person can harm others and put them at risk of traffic accidents. Alcohol costs more than 1% of the gross national product in high-income and middle-income countries and is linked to poverty. Apart from money spent on drinks, heavy alcohol consumers may suffer other economic problems such as lower wages, lost employment opportunities and increased medical and legal expenses. Evidence-based regulations can reduce the negative costs of alcohol use. An analysis of the strength of alcohol control policies, as estimated by the Alcohol Policy Index, ...

November 16, 12:15 a.m.: Officers were dispatched to a local gas station where a female was observed waving her hands. The reporting party was concerned the woman needed assistance.

Ted is gambling at a casino. A cashier hands what seems to Ted to be a genuine dollar bill. Given (PC), it seems Ted might justifiably believe the bill is genuine. However, suppose Ted now learns the following. The mob owns the casino and has produced a great many counterfeit dollar bills that a non-expert such as himself will be unable to distinguish from the genuine article. Ted has no clue what proportion of dollar bills handed out at the casino are counterfeit. For all he knows, the mob might want to ensure the bills cannot be traced back to them, and so will ensure no fake bills are handed out; on the other hand, for all Ted knows, the mob may have no such concerns given the local police are in their pocket and so all the bills are fakes. So Ted, lets suppose, cant reasonably assign any probability to the hypothesis that the bill he is holding is counterfeit: neither high, nor low, nor middling. The probability he is holding a fake bill is simply inscrutable to Ted. Now consider: under ...
Second-order scalar-relativistic Douglas-Kroll-Hess density functional calculations of the electric field gradient, including an analytic correction of the picture change error, were performed for 34 tin compounds of which molecular structures and Sn-119 Mossbauer spectroscopy parameters are experimentally known. The components of the diagonalized electric field gradient tensor, V-xx,V-yy, V-zz, were used to determine the quantity V, which is proportional to the nuclear quadrupole splitting parameter Delta E. The slope of the linear correlation plot of the experimentally determined Delta E parameter versus the corresponding calculated V data allowed us to obtain an absolute value of the nuclear quadrupole moment Q of Sn-119 equal to Q = 13.2 +/- 0.1 fm(2). This is about 11% larger than the picture-change-error-affected value and in good agreement with previous estimates of the picture change error in compounds of similar atomic charge. Moreover, despite the variety of the tin compounds ...

Substandard antimalarial drugs are a major problem to the health of citizens in developing countries, and it is likely that the problem persists due to the lack of means to detect substandard drugs. Various colorimetric techniques have been implemented to determine if a drug contains the stated active ingredient or not, but vibrational spectroscopies such as NIR and Raman can be used to more reliably quantify the amount of active ingredient. The use of Raman, however, has been limited by the presence of significant sample fluorescence that interferes with detection of the SERS signals of the active ingredients. Thus, we have started testing the ability of Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) to detect and quantify ten common antimalarial drugs. We found that unique spectra for each of the compounds were able to be taken, and therefore SERS can be used to determine the active ingredient of many antimalarial drugs. To determine the quantification ability of SERS, two Partial Least Squares (PLS)
