leave a comment »

NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — Daniel A. Pollack, the Special Master appointed by Judge Thomas P. Griesa to conduct and preside over settlement negotiations between the Republic of Argentina and its Bondholders, issued the following statement today:

“Representatives of the Republic of Argentina and their lawyers met with me today. Representatives of the Bondholders and their lawyers also met with me today. After speaking with both sides, separately, I proposed and urged direct, face-to-face talks between the parties. The representatives of the Bondholders were agreeable to direct talks; the representatives of the Republic declined to engage in direct talks. The issues separating the parties remain unresolved at this time. The time for the Republic to avoid Default (July 30) is short. Accordingly, it is my expectation that, consistent with Judge Griesa’s direction in open Court earlier this week, there will be further meetings with the parties over the next several days.”

Mr. Pollack said that he would have no further public comment at this time.

leave a comment »

Sir Bob Geldof Says the ‘Last Mile’ of the HIV Epidemic Must be Funded

MELBOURNE, Australia/CNW/ – Sir Bob Geldof told delegates at AIDS 2014, the 20th International AIDS Conference, that the “preposterous reluctance” of governments to fund HIV programs in developing countries is “disgraceful”, especially as the journey to the end of the HIV epidemic is “in the last mile”. (Photo: ) The renowned anti-poverty campaigner made the comments at the conference in Melbourne today as he reflected on the impact of HIV on developing nations. Geldof said that the HIV epidemic in low income countries is “inextricably linked” to poverty, and he strongly criticized wealthy nations for reneging on foreign aid commitments. The theme of the conference today (Thursday 24 July) was ‘making the long term short term’, and activities began with plenary presentations about fast-tracking the global HIV response. The escalating HIV epidemic in Eastern Europe and Central Asia was explored in a special session featuring representatives from Russia , Lithuania and Moldova . The panel considered the regions intersecting epidemics of HIV, injecting drug use, hepatitis C and tuberculosis, as well as solutions to issues such as poor access to treatment and the marginalisation and criminalisation of men who have sex with men and people who inject drugs. Morning’s sessions included a discussion on the worrying trends of HIV transmission and co-infection in prisons; how cultural and political environments are impacting on the health outcomes of indigenous populations throughout the world; and strategies for making workplaces more inclusive and supportive of people with HIV. Sessions in the afternoon explored a range of subjects such as: the challenges of being transgender in Asia and the Pacific; cultural sensitivity training for sexual health workers in Islamic countries; and how sacred texts can be used to talk effectively about sexuality and diversity. The Global Village, the conference’s international showcase of community related HIV programmes and activities, welcomed Geldof to the village, and showed him around the wide range of events including theatrical and dance performances, fashion shows, film screenings and music recitals, as well as discussions on a variety of issues.

We anticipate an overall improvement in the quality of studies and the data generated from the Shared Investigator Platform initiative.”

“We are pleased to partner with TransCelerate to build this first-of-a-kind platform, which will help maximize the potential of technology-based collaboration and provide better medicines to patients, greater efficiency to clinical sites, and superior business outcomes to pharmaceutical sponsors,” said Bhaskar Sambasivan, Vice President of Cognizant’s Life Sciences practice. “Streamlining the clinical trials process will enable TransCelerate’s member companies to not only speed up drug development, but also drive innovation in improving patient health. We are making a significant commitment and investment in this strategic relationship, and will leverage our industry expertise and technology capabilities to ensure that the proprietary platform, built as an industry utility, delivers optimal value.
