Canopy Growth says number of medical marijuana patients more than tripled

TORONTO – Canada’s largest publicly traded marijuana company says it has had a hard time keeping up with demand for high-potency pot as its list of registered medical marijuana patients more than tripled at the end of last year.Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX:WEED) says about one-third of its customers want moderate to high levels of THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana, and they’re willing to pay a premium price for it.“And we really didn’t have that in the (October-December) quarter — almost ever,” CEO Bruce Linton said Tuesday on a conference call after the company reported its third quarter results.Linton said Canopy Growth has been hurrying to meet demand, expanding its production capacity and acquiring other producers. It also saw its medical marijuana patient base balloon to 29,000 at the end of last year from 8,000 as of Dec. 31, 2015.To meet demand, Canopy Growth has been developing a medical marijuana product containing 27 per cent THC over the last 18 months. It’s awaiting regulatory approval to start production.The company also reported $1 million in sales in a single day for the first time, on Feb. 1, a remarkable number considering total revenue during the third quarter was less than $10 million.“We had a fairly substantial amount of some reasonably pricey and high THC products that were eaten up,” Linton said.At Smiths Falls, Ont., where Canopy Growth has converted a former Hershey chocolate plant into its head office, the company has opened more grow rooms, some of which are being renovated to become two-storey production facilities.Canopy Growth also has plans to expand its production capacity at other locations, including those recently acquired after its purchase of Mettrum Health Corp. in an all-stock deal that closed Jan. 31.Linton said Canopy is poised to expand further when the federal government announces how it plans to open up a recreational marijuana market, which is expected in the spring.“The only update I’d offer is that the provinces, at varying levels, seem to be quite actively engaged,” Linton said.“Whereas it has always been a federal agenda … what’s we’ve been seeing for some time is real active engagement from a few of the provinces as they set up their own level (of implementation.)”For the three months ended Dec. 31, revenue was $9.8 million, up from $3.5 million a year earlier. Net income for the quarter was $3.0 million or two cents per diluted share, a turnaround from a loss of $3.3 million or four cents per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2015. by David Paddon, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 14, 2017 5:22 am MDT Last Updated Feb 14, 2017 at 11:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Canopy Growth says number of medical marijuana patients more than tripled read more

Credit: Alexa MavrogianisThe Dallas Cowboys selected former Ohio State wide receiver Noah Brown in the seventh round with the 239th overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.Brown is the seventh former OSU player selected in this year’s draft. He is the third former Buckeye on the offensive side of the ball to be selected. The big-bodied 6-foot-2, 222-pound wideout was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection his final season for the Buckeyes.In 2016, his redshirt sophomore season and final year as a Buckeye, Brown caught 30 passes, the second-most on the team, for 402 yards, a 12.6-yard average. He caught seven touchdowns.Brown excited OSU fans and impressed NFL teams when he caught five passes for 72 yards, scoring four times against Oklahoma in the third game of the 2016 season. But Brown caught just two touchdowns in the remaining 10 games.Before the 2016 season, Brown played in 13 games, all during his freshman season, but caught just a single pass. In fall camp, prior to his second season in Columbus, Brown suffering a broken left leg that would keep him out the entire season, allowing OSU to use a redshirt.Brown’s 19 reps on the bench press at the NFL combine tied him for the second-most among wide receivers in this draft class.This marks the third year in a row a Buckeyes receiver was drafted. In 2015, Devin Smith and Evan Spencer were taken by the New York Jets and Washington Redskins, respectively. Michael Thomas and Braxton Miller were drafted by the New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans, respectively, in 2016.Brown joins former Buckeyes running backs Ezekiel Elliot and Rod Smith in Dallas.Brown will begin his NFL career in Dallas on September 10 when the Cowboys take on the New York Giants. read more

Vegetarians are eating meat and coeliacs are having gluten because of poor

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Following the news, bakery chain Greggs is now planning to “ramp up” its labelling efforts after its chief executive, Roger Whiteside, said the company was fully aware of the extent of allergy risks. He added that he wanted to ensure that Greggs didn’t follow in the footsteps of Pret.Commenting on the findings, Dominika Piasecka, spokesperson for The Vegan Society, said: “With so many new and exciting vegan products hitting the market, clear labelling is becoming increasingly important but we find this isn’t always practised. They found that although a lot of crisps, like Pringles and McCoys, contain milk powder in the seasoning, 16% of people still think all crisps are vegan.The findings follow Pret’s announcement last week that it would introduce full ingredient labelling to product packaging, even for food made freshly in its kitchens.Pret’s changes came after the inquest into the death of 15-year-old Natasha Ednan-Laperouse who collapsed on a flight due to anaphylactic shock after she at a Pret sandwich containing sesame.The coroner found that she was “reassured” by the lack of allergen information on the packaging and declared the chain’s allergy labelling as inadequate.This week, it was revealed that another Pret customer, Celia Marsh, died in December 2017 after eating the chain’s “super-veg rainbow flatbread”, which was meant to be dairy-free. A quarter of vegetarians and vegans have accidentally eaten meat due to unclear food labelling, the Telegraph can reveal.New research by Opinium for Ubamarket reveals that 40% of the nation don’t understand what they eat and 30% struggle to manage their diet as a result.Among the findings, the survey showed that 32% of people were not aware that pesto is not vegetarian and an overwhelming 81% also thought that soy sauce was gluten free.The confusion is the result of poor labelling.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––It calls overall food safety into question as 52% of respondents agreed that the complex nature of UK labels makes it difficult for people with dietary requirements to make informed decisions about their food.This includes those following vegetarian, vegan, dairy free and gluten free diets.Hazel Gowland, expert in food risks and founder of Allergy Action found this particularly disturbing. She said: “By law, consumers buying food must not be misled. People selling food have to ensure it is safe this includes the obligation to present and provide accurate information about it.”Information which is inaccurate, incomplete or poorly communicated is a real safety risk to those with food allergies, intolerances and coeliac disease.” The survey asked a representative sample of 2,003 UK voters questions about the transparency of food labelling as well as specific products. Natasha Ednan-Laperouse died after ate a Pret A Manger sandwich. The chain is now introducing stricter labelling. “Mistakenly consuming animal products does occasionally happen among vegans because they misread labels, get confused with some of the unfamiliar ingredients, or a product is mislabelled.“Our Vegan Trademark aims to help consumers decide that a product is suitable at a glimpse and we encourage companies to improve their vegan labelling.”Ubamarket, which commissioned the research, is launching a new Allergen Alerts feature as part of its app. Natasha Ednan-Laperouse died after ate a Pret A Manger sandwich.

The declaration of the results for the students will be done no later than March 2, she promised.The Public Health Minister also told media operatives that leading up to this period, the Nursing Council has agreed to provide tutoring for those students who will be re-sitting the examination.“…Because not all of those students who wrote the examinations did both parts, so it would be only those students who would have written the multiple choice aspect of the examination,” she said. With regards to the investigation as to who leaked the examination papers, the Minister did not disclose much information, but indicated that the investigations are still ongoing.However, he predecessor, Dr George Norton had informed the media at the 2016 end of the year presser that the Police investigations so far had revealed that the leak may have come from those responsible for putting together the test. He was quick to note however, that the investigations were not yet completed.Norton had also said that the Ministry’s Health Policy Committee met with the Nursing Council and other stakeholders to discuss the matter when it was decided that a re-sitting of the examination should be contingent on the findings of the investigations.With Minister Lawrence noting that the investigations are still ongoing, it would seem that she has taken a different approach from that of her predecessor in wanting to have the students re-sit prior to the findings of the investigation.After writing their exams last year October, nurses were informed by the Principal Tutor of the Georgetown School of Nursing that they may have to re-sit the examinations since it had been discovered that test papers may have been leaked before the examination was written.Nurses from the New Amsterdam School of Nursing were the first to react to the decision and protested that they will not resit the exam.The investigations were said to be directed to the General Nursing Council since examinations are prepared under their purview and persons responsible for compromising the test papers may be within that system.It was disclosed that when the guilty parties have been identified, they will face the law.

New legislation designed to jump start CTL production

first_imgRep. Devin Nunes has introduced new legislation designed to expedite the production of clean, domestic coal-to-liquid (CTL) transportation fuels by providing a new risk management tool meant to shield CTL producers from dramatic price swings in the oil market.Introduced on August 1, the “Coal-to-Liquid Fuel Marketing Act of 2007” would enable the secretary of the treasury to auction “put contracts” for CTL fuels. Under the bill, CTL producers would be permitted to purchase “put contracts” through bids in the open market. The contacts would include a fair market price, known as a strike price, at which the Government would maintain a standing offer to purchase CTL fuels. If prices fall below the strike price contained in the contract, the CTL producer could chose to either sell the fuel to the government at the strike price or accept payment from the government for the difference between the strike price and actual market price.The risk management tool will raise revenues for the federal government, based on the auction of the “put contacts,” and will provide additional security to investors, as CTL fuel will be protected from any potential price manipulation by foreign energy cartels looking to end emerging competition. “Our nation has a 250-year supply of coal,” Nunes said. “If we use this resource, we could reduce our dependence on foreign oil by 2.6 Mbbl/d. This would completely eliminate our dependence on Middle Eastern oil and would vastly improve our national security.”last_img read more

Goldcorps first gold from Cerro Negro

first_imgGoldcorp has achieved first gold production at Cerro Negro, a high-grade gold mine located in the Santa Cruz province of Argentina. On July 25, the initial dore bar weighing approximately 100 kg was poured at the mine containing an estimated 317 oz of gold. Overall, progress at the mine remains on track for declaration of commercial production by the end of the year.  Production guidance for 2014 is expected to be between 130,000 and 180,000 oz of gold.  Initial capital costs have been reduced by $100 million and are now expected to be between $1.6 and $1.7 billion.“We are very pleased to have first production on schedule and within our current capital cost guidance range from this world class mine,” said Chuck Jeannes, Goldcorp President and CEO.  “Very importantly, this achievement was reached safely, with Cerro Negro in the midst of a run of over 4.1 million man hours without a lost time accident. This milestone signals not only the start of Cerro Negro’s mine life, but also a period of sustained growth for Goldcorp. The team at Cerro Negro has done an outstanding job amid occasionally challenging circumstances and I congratulate them for this outstanding effort. We look forward to strong contributions from Cerro Negro to Goldcorp’s overall performance for many years to come.”Cerro Negro is a high-grade gold mine located in the Santa Cruz province of Argentina.   It contains several high-grade vein structures, including the Mariana Central, Mariana Norte, San Marcos and Eureka.Cerro Negro was acquired in 2010 and since then the gold reserves and resources have nearly doubled, and new discoveries support Goldcorp’s expectations that Cerro Negro will be a long-lived, high quality asset with low production costs. Cerro Negro’s ideal physical setting and easily accessible veins will result in near-term, cashflow-accretive gold production.  Proven and Probable gold mineral reserves totalled 5.74 Moz as of December 31, 2013.The property contains a large, very prospective land package, with a rich network of near-surface gold veins that are easily mineable at very low costs.The project is located on the low level Patagonian plains in southern Argentina, at an elevation of some 600 m above sea level. Project infrastructure is excellent, with paved and gravel road access to the nearest provincial town of Las Heras, 110 km northeast. Las Heras already provides basic manufacturing and service facilities to local on-shore oil fields located in Santa Cruz. 160 km northeast of Las Heras is the regional centre, Comodoro Rivadavia (population 140,000), with port and airport facilities.The property comprises 25,000 ha, and contains ten currently identified prospect areas with manifestations of epithermal gold mineralisation. The deposits are low-sulphidation, epithermal gold (and potentially silver) hosted within quartz veins and associated stockworks. Within the overall project, at least six zones of epithermal mineralization are now recognised.last_img read more

Cigarettes pour une fois les prix baissent

first_imgCigarettes : pour une fois, les prix baissentFrance – Lundi 5 juillet, le prix du paquet de cigarettes de trois marques a baissé de 20 centimes. Roselyne Bachelot, ministre de la Santé, se dit scandalisée.Certains paquets de Lucky Strike, de Rothmans et le tabac à rouler Drum ont vu leur prix baisser lundi 5 juillet. D’après le groupe British American Tobacco, cette mesure vise à lutter contre les achats transfrontaliers. Cette baisse a d’ailleurs été approuvée par le ministère du Budget et publiée hier au Journal Officiel. Du côté du ministère de la Santé, on n’entend pas les choses de cette façon. Le tabac tue en effet 60.000 personnes par an et la politique de prix répulsifs est la principale arme pour lutter contre sa consommation. Roselyne Bachelot, interrogée par RTL, a violemment réagi à cette initiative. Elle craint que cette politique marketing attire de nouveaux fumeurs, tout particulièrement des individus fragiles comme les jeunes. Elle envisage donc une nouvelle hausse des taxes.  Le 6 juillet 2010 à 11:30 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Woman Suffering Postpartum Depression Commits Suicide

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 12 Nov 2014 – One day before her arraignment in the case of the near drowning death of her son, Cayden; Inakesha Brooks-Amour, a woman believed to be suffering postpartum depression has reportedly committed suicide. Police say she was yesterday found overdosed on meds on a bathroom floor. Inakesha had since August been released on $50,000 bail; so she may not have been in custody where she had once been on suicide watch. The 33 year old who hails from Grand Turk has been under enormous pressure ever since her 3-month old son Cayden was given life-saving CPR after she reportedly tried to drown him in a Riviera Isles canal on July 1st. Brooks Armour, her husband Conlan and mother Grace Ann all told police it was not the first time Inakesha had tried to hurt her son; before it had been feeding him cough syrup. Today, Inakesha was due to face charges formally in court… her husband had been given custody of the baby boy, who at last report remained unconscious at Joe DiMaggio hospital in South Florida. Grace Ann Brooks, Inakesha’s mother was charged with neglect, and like her daughter faced as much as 20 years in jail for the tragic incident. Family in the TCI, after getting wind of the case established a fund to raise money and awareness for healthcare bills and legal fees. Family had offered that Inakesha Brooks-Armour was thrilled to be a mother and that she loved her son… again, it is believed she suffered PPD.

Fainting aside Air Force says F35 is OK

first_imgAir Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh“This is not a PowerPoint program anymore,” he told lawmakers at a Senate hearing. “About a year from now, we will have 100 F-35s in our Air Force inventory. We’ve already flown 45,000 hours on this airplane, collectively.”Welsh says deferring the purchase of some F-35s will not affect the basing process.“I’m very excited about getting the airplane to Alaska for two reasons,” he said, responding to a question from Murkowski. “Partners in the Pacific will want to buy the F-35. And we can train with them in Alaska like we can train in very few other places in the world. The range airspace there is phenomenal. And that location, we’ve talked about this before—geography does matter, and Alaska is blessed with it.”The Air Force is still struggling to find maintenance manpower for the F-35, without adding personnel. They’ve been using contractors, but Welsh says they’ll need crews capable of deploying.“As we get closer to full operational capability of this aircraft, we have more squadrons fielding, we need to get at active duty Air Force maintainers and have them available to stand up operational bases like Eielson,” he said.Murkowski says the budget also includes nearly $300 million for Eielson, including seven projects to support the F-35. Download AudioMassive cost overruns and delays have dogged the F-35, the new fighter slated for Eielson Air Force Base. But the Pentagon insists those problems are now under control.So it was unfortunate optics that the general in charge of the Air Force budget, James Martin, fainted — forehead to podium — during a press briefing this week, just as he and his budget deputy, Carolyn Gleason, were answering questions about the F-35. Gleason grabbed the general by the arm and hardly missed a beat.“That’s what the F-35 will do to you,” she said, as people rushed in to help Martin to a chair. He was led out of the Pentagon briefing room. She continued to discuss the purchasing schedule for the F-35.The F-35a, the Air Force version of the joint strike fighter. (Photo Lockheed Martin)Martin, before the episode, said spending constraints require the Air Force to buy fewer F-35s over the next five years, to save nearly $5 billion. Next year’s Air Force budget calls for 43 of the aircraft, instead of the 48 planned.The Air Force chose Eielson as the first base in the Pacific for the F-35, pending environmental review. They are due to arrive in 2019.Air Force Chief of Staff Mark Welsh sounded upbeat when he gave a progress report on Capitol Hill Wednesday, at the request of Sen. Lisa Murkowski.last_img read more

Aly Raisman Says She Was Abused By USA Gymnastics Doctor

first_imgAly Raisman, captain of the gold-medal U.S. gymnastics teams at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, says she was abused by former team doctor Larry Nassar.Raisman, 23, told CBS’ 60 Minutes in an interview airing Sunday that Nassar first treated her when she was 15. She says she spoke to FBI investigators about Nassar after the 2016 Summer Games in Rio.More than 125 women have alleged abuse by Nassar, who is in jail awaiting sentencing on child pornography charges and a trial on charges of sexual misconduct. Plaintiffs are also suing USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee and Michigan State University, where Nassar was a doctor and faculty member.Raisman said people have asked her why more of Nassar’s accusers didn’t lodge complaints about him earlier.“Why are we looking at why didn’t the girls speak up?” she says. “Why not look at what about the culture? What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?”McKayla Maroney, Raisman’s teammate at the 2012 London Games, said last month that she had been abused by Nasser for years. “I had a dream to go to the Olympics,” she wrote in a statement on Twitter, “and the things that I had to endure to get there, were unnecessary, and disgusting.”Adam Glanzman/Getty ImagesOlympic gymnast Aly Raisman says she was abused by former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar. She told CBS’ 60 Minutes that he began treating her when she was 15.According to the Lansing State Journal, Nassar’s attorneys have defended his actions — including breast massages and digital vaginal and anal penetration for up to 20 minutes as a time — as helpful medical treatments.His attorney tells NPR that due to a gag order in the sexual abuse case, he has no comment on Raisman’s accusations.In an interview with The Associated Press in August, Raisman didn’t want to say whether she had been abused by Nassar, but she called him “a monster” and blamed USA Gymnastics for not stopping him.“What people don’t realize is that this doctor was a doctor for 29 years,” Raisman told the AP. “Whether or not he did it to a gymnast, they still knew him. Even if he didn’t do it to you, it’s still the trauma and the anxiety of wondering what could have happened. I think that needs to be addressed. These girls, they should be comfortable going to USA Gymnastics and saying ‘I need help, I want therapy. I need this.’”This week, the governing body announced it had hired a new president and CEO, Kerry Perry. The previous president, Steve Penny, resigned in March amid criticism of how the organization handled the abuse allegations.In June, USA Gymnastics said it was adopting all 70 of the recommendations from an independent review of its policies related to sexual misconduct. Among the recommendations is a database that will track coaches dismissed from member clubs, and requiring clubs to report complaints to authorities immediately.In a statement to 60 Minutes, USA Gymnastics pointed to its new guidelines and said it “is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed … we want to work with Aly and all interested athletes to keep athletes safe.”CBS will broadcast the full interview with Raisman on Sunday night.“I’m really upset,” Raisman says. “[W]hen I see these young girls that come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just — I can’t — every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think — I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

July 13, 2011 – Based on its recent analysis of the medical imaging market, Siemens Healthcare was given the 2011 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. Siemens’ Biograph mMR is the first scanner capable of simultaneously acquiring whole-body positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. “While the ability to fuse and spatially register PET and MRI data has been available for several years, no manufacturer has successfully integrated these two modalities into a single-gantry, whole-body scanner,” said Frost & Sullivan research analyst Roberto Aranibar. Simultaneous acquisition of PET and MRI data reduces overall procedure time by providing PET/MRI in a single scan, thus eliminating any time required for patient transport. Faster procedure times improve the patient experience and enables faster delivery of images to clinicians for review. The collection of MRI attenuation data during diagnostic scanning also reduces procedure time and improves clinical workflow. With a footprint comparable to a standard, high-field MRI scanner, the Biograph mMR can be sited in existing MRI rooms, eliminating renovation costs for customers seeking to replace an existing MRI. “The ability to be used in an MR-only capacity, when PET is not clinically indicated, helps keep utilization of the scanner high, and the ability to perform PET/MRI within the time frame of a typical MRI procedure helps maximize patient throughput and maintain good clinical work-flow,” said Aranibar. Based on its imaging characteristics and capabilities, PET/MRI is initially expected to find the strongest interest among clinicians and researchers in neurology, oncology, cardiology and pediatric imaging.* Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in the following categories: innovative element of the product, leverage of leading edge technologies, value-added features/benefits, increased customer ROI and customer acquisition/penetration potential. Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry. *MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses and infants under two years of age. The responsible physician has to decide about the benefit of the MRI examination in comparison to other imaging procedures.

Row over inflight entertainment causes flight diversion

first_imgMovie “Alex Cross” deemed inappropriate by parents of young children. A United Airlines flight from Denver to Baltimore’s BWI airport was recently diverted after an on-board confrontation in regards to the in-flight entertainment.On 2 February 2013, two parents and their four and eight year old boys were escorted off the diverted flight in Chicago, after the captain deemed the situation at hand a security concern, according to the passanger report published in The Atlantic.The situation was that of the parents asking flight attendants to either switch off or cover up the screens of the overhead monitors which were screening “Alex Cross”, rated PG-13 in the US (M in Australia) for sex, nudity, violence and gore and has the following summary as per movie database IMDB.com:“A homicide detective is pushed to the brink of his moral and physical limits as he tangles with a ferociously skilled serial killer who specializes in torture and pain”.According to the personal report, the parents made their request after seeing the opening scenes of the film and not being able to “shield” their young children from the “inappropriate content”.Reportedly the flight attendants said that they were unable to resolve this issue, so the parents asked if the captain had the authority to do so and for his name. Both requests were denied.Over an hour after the interaction, the plane was diverted and the family was escorted by various parties, including the police and the FBI, which they say was to their surprise.After being interviewed, the family was rebooked onto the next flight to BWI airport.A United Airlines spokesperson Charles Hobart confirmed the flight had been diverted “after the crew reported a disturbance involving a passenger”, as reported by The Telegraph, London.Do you think that the pilot was justified in diverting the plane or were the parents right in voicing their concerns over the in-flight movie?Source = e-Travel Blackboard: A.Nlast_img read more
