Only 36 Percent Of Antibiotics Which Are Sold In India Are Approved In Other Countries

Multinational companies continue to produce and sell unregulated antibiotics in India, worsening the problem of antimicrobial resistance in the country and impeding efforts to fight drug resistance globally, a UK study said.

The report, to be made public on Monday by researchers at Queen Mary University of London and Newcastle University, said millions of antibiotic pills in the Indian market have not been regulated in India, the UK or US. The research was published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.

Mery Streep et Jack Nicholson: le grand déballage!

Révélations. Alcool, Drogues dures, infidélités, la biographie de Jack Nicholson signée Mark Eliot fait l’effet d’une bombe à Hollywood. Entre autres révélations croustillantes, l’auteur révèle les dessous du tournage du film Ironweed en 1987. La star triple oscarisée aurait eu une love affair avec une certaine Meryl Streep..

«Avec quel acteur aimeriez-vous coucher…». À cette question posée à l’occasion Dans une de l’émission d’Andy Cohen pour Bravo en 2012, Meryl Streep avait répondu: Jack Nicholson. On comprend aujourd’hui mieux pourquoi.

Biographe des stars, Mark Eliot a en effet révélé dans son dernier opus la relation entre l’actrice du Diable S’habille en Prada et la star de Shining. « Souvent entre deux prises (du film Ironweed : la force du Destin. Ndlr), on voyait la caravane de Jack rebondir, comme si elle était posée sur quatre ressorts […] La rumeur de leur relation s’est répandue à toute vitesse comme de la mauvaise herbe mais ils ont tous les deux nié ».

Homme à femmes, Jack Nicholson est le père de cinq enfants (Jennifer 50 ans, Caleb Goddard 43 ans, Honey 32 ans, Lorraine 23 ans, et Ray 21 ans) qu’il a eus avec quatre compagnes différentes.

Dans sa biographie, Mark Eliot révèle aussi d’autre addictions de l’acteur de 76 ans. «Au début de sa carrière, c’était un consommateur de drogues régulier, il a pris du LSD dans les années 60 puis de la cocaïne et de la marijuana, explique le biographe. Ses expériences avec la drogue ont changé sa vie : il affirme avoir vu pour la première fois le visage de Dieu en étant défoncé. Il a aussi eu des fantasmes de castration, des fantasmes homo-érotiques et la vision de ne pas avoir été un enfant désiré”.

Un acteur plus tourmenté qu’il n’y paraît donc.

Fabrice Luchini « ne sent pas le pervers » chez Jean-Marc Ayrault

Invité de C à vous lundi, Fabrice Luchini s’est livré à une analyse politique de la France. Loin des considérations électoralistes et des clivages qui minent le pays, l’acteur a porté le débat sur un terrain plutôt inattendu.

On ne présente plus Fabrice Luchini, habitué des plateaux télés dont il est un bon client, apprécié pour ses sorties enflammées, ses moments de folie et ses envolées lyriques. Il en a une nouvelle fois fait la brillante démonstration lundi soir, sur le plateau de C à vous sur France 5.

Invité d’Anne-Sophie Lapix, Fabrice Luchini a réalisé un petit tour d’horizon des personnalités politiques majeures en France et s’est livré à une analyse aussi personnelle que drôle. A propos du Premier ministre, l’acteur a affirmé: «Jean-Marc Ayrault on sent bien que c’est un brave homme. On ne sent pas le pervers. On ne sent pas le touzard. On voit bien que Jean-Marc Ayrault, il ne se fait pas des turlutes avec DSK, avec des cochonnes… Tu vois ce que je veux dire, il n’a pas le camescope pendant qu’il y a une femme qui lui…». Se rend-il compte qu’il va trop loin? En tout cas, il ne termine pas sa phrase. Mais comme le sujet l’inspire, il poursuit: «Il n’est pas comme ça Ayrault. On sent qu’il n’a pas niqué le fisc, il ne doit pas gagner beaucoup d’argent donc il ne doit pas tellement le niquer. On sent que ce n’est pas quelqu’un de pervers. On sent que c’est un brave homme, on sent que c’est un honnête homme». Seul bémol aux yeux de Luchini: Jean-Marc Ayrault «n‘a pas écrit Voyage au bout de la nuit, c’est ça le problème.»

Quant au président de la République, Fabrice Luchini n’a pas l’intention de participer au bashing à la mode mais il se montre assez acerbe. «Moi je les aime beaucoup les hommes politiques. Hollande, je l’aime beaucoup aussi. Il ne tient plus la barraque, j’ai l’impression que la barraque n’est plus tenue du tout» confie-t-il.

Et même s’il est un peu sorti du paysage politique, le comédien glisse un petit mot sur Nicolas Sarkozy, qu’il a soutenu en 2007. «Vous savez, moi je ne déteste pas du tout Nicolas Sarkozy. Je le connais pas mal. Pour les acteurs, quand tu disais ça il y a quelques années, t’étais comme un pote à Goering. donc là je le dis maintenant il n’est plus aux affaires». Il faudrait vraiment songer à confier une émission politique à Fabrice Luchini. Il réconcilierait sans doute beaucoup de Français avec les hommes politiques.

Zara Phillips, cousine du prince William, a donné naissance à une fille

L’épouse du rugbyman Mike Tindall et fille de la princesse Anne a mis au monde une petite fille. La nouvelle a été annoncée sur le compte de la monarchie.

Bonne nouvelle venue tout droit d’outre-Manche. La cousine du Prince William a accouché de son premier enfant. Zara Phillips s’était mariée en 2011 avec le rugbyman international anglais Mike Tindall. Le nom de la l’enfant n’a pas encore été révélé. Contrairement au protocole habituel, la naissance a été annoncée sur le Twitter officiel de la monarchie britannique. On pouvait y lire « C’est une fille ! Le premier enfant de Zara et Mike Tindall est né à l’hôpital royal de Gloucester et pèse 3,5 kilos #royalbaby ». D’autres informations concernant le nouveau-né ont ensuite été communiquées sur le même compte Twitter.

Le couple, qui ne désirait pas connaître le sexe de l’enfant avant sa naissance, a donc mis au monde le quatrième petit-enfant de la reine Elisabeth II. La fillette se place à la seizième place dans la longue liste des prétendants au trône du Royaume-Uni. Cela restant bien entendu anecdotique. Buckingham Palace a ensuite annoncé : « La Reine, le Duc d’Edimbourg, la Princesse Royale, le Capitaine Phillips […] et les parents de Mike ont été informés et se réjouissent de la nouvelle ».

Bria et Shayne: les splendides filles d’Eddy Murphy

Elles ont 24 et 19 ans et quelque chose nous dit que l’on a pas fini d’entendre parler d’elles. Bria et Shayne, les deux filles aînées d’Eddy Murphy enflamment le web après avoir posté des photos sexy sur le réseau social Instagram.

La relève du clan Murphy est assurée. Si la star de la famille, Eddy, se fait plutôt discret ces dernières années, deux de ses filles, Bria et Shayne (nées de son union avec Nicole Mitchell, mannequin et star de télé-réalité, avec qui l’acteur est resté entre 1993 et 2006) commencent à faire parler d’elles.

Leur shooting (on ne sait pas pour l’heure où il sera publié) pour iamEpic, un photographe de Los Angeles, fait actuellement le buzz sur les réseaux sociaux.

Les plus observateurs avaient déjà pu apercevoir les physiques avantageux des deux jeunes femmes dans la presse people lors de leurs vacances avec leur père l’été dernier à Hawaï.

Plutôt à l’aise avec leur silhouette, les deux jeunes filles se mettent aussi régulièrement en scène sur leurs comptes Twitter ou Instagram. Si Shayne (19 ans) est encore inconnue par le grand public, le visage de Bria (24 ans) est un peu plus familier. Depuis trois ans, la jolie métisse représente au niveau mondial la marque Dark and Lovely destinée aux femmes noires (marque appartenant au groupe Softsheen Carson filiale de groupe L’Oreal).

Sous contrat avec l’agence LA Models, Bria a déjà posé dénudée pour la magazine Maxim. Et ce n’est sans doute qu’un début!

Sacha Baron Cohen: Zuckerberg Has 'Moral Duty' to Throw More People Off Facebook

Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen lashed out against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a profane rant, criticizing the tech billionaire for his recent speech in which he said it’s wrong for a private company to censor the news or politicians.

Sacha Baron Cohen also suggested Facebook has a “moral duty” to throw more people off its platform.

Zuckerberg delivered the speech Thursday at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., addressing the importance of freedom of expression and the need for people to stop branding speech they don’t like as “dangerous.”

The Facebook head also said tech companies shouldn’t be deciding what is the truth or not. “As a principle, in a democracy, I believe people should decide what is credible, not tech companies,” Zuckerberg said.

He indicated in his speech that Facebook would not ban political ads in the future. “Banning political ads favors incumbents and whoever the media chooses to cover,” he said.

Zuckerberg’s speech comes after reports that he recently met with conservatives over concerns that Facebook was unfairly censoring righ-of-center views.

Bruno star Cohen hit back at Zuckerberg on Friday, saying that private companies like Facebook aren’t subject to the First Amendment.

“Just heard #MarkZuckerberg’s disingenuous speech. He is not the government, but the owner of a private business and not subject to the 1st Amendment,” the screen star said on Twitter.

Cohen didn’t address the monopolies that tech giants like Facebook and Twitter have amassed, giving the companies disproportionate control over what people can say and read online.

The actor suggested that Facebook should eject more people from its platform, saying that a hypothetical restaurant owner faced with neo-Nazi customers would do the same.

“He has every legal right, indeed a moral duty, to tell them to get the f**k out of his restaurant,” Cohen wrote.

This isn’t the first time that Cohen has lashed out against a social media company.

The Who Is America? star claimed in an interview earlier this year that U.S. democracy is “being disintegrated” under President Donald Trump and argued the social media giant Twitter is partly to blame.

On Thursday, Zuckerberg said that attempts to limit speech based on a distrust of average Americans to make up their own minds would be bad for democracy.

“I personally believe this is more dangerous for democracy over the long term than almost any speech.”

Police: We've Found ‘No Obvious People that Could Be Assailants’ in Jussie Smollett Attack

As the Chicago Police Department continues its investigation into the reported attack on gay TV actor Jussie Smollett, officials seem to be growing skeptical with the CPD noting that it has found no “obvious people” who could be suspects in the attack.

Rob Elgas, a reporter for Chicago’s ABC affiliate, took to Twitter this afternoon to note that the Chicago police are reviewing area video surveillance and have so far found no one who could be an obvious suspect in the attack.

“As Chicago police expand their search for the men who allegedly attacked Jussie Smollett,” Elgas tweeted, adding, “a spokesman says this morning there have been ‘no obvious people that could be assailants’ discovered. Detectives have poured over hundreds of hours of surveillance video.”

Police have even expanded the search for a mile around the area Smollett claimed he was attacked.

According to CNN’s Sara Sidner:

Thus far, the CPD have reviewed “hundreds of hours footage” and found no video evidence to substantiate the claims Jussie Smollett made about being attacked on February 29 at 2 AM on the below freezing, snow-covered streets of Chicago.

Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard Doubles Down: Ban Private Gun Sales at Gun Shows, Flea Markets

Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard doubled down Wednesday on his push to criminalize private gun sales, particularly those occurring at gun shows and flea markets.

Hubbard says in an Instagram video that background checks are not legally required in private gun sales, like those that occur between family members or at gun shows or flea markets.

Not only does Hubbard’s gun control push here sound identical to the Democrats’ talking points from the last 30 years, it is exactly what the Democrats are pushing now.

On December 5, 2018, Breitbart News reported that incoming House Democrats plan to push a universal background checks bill that will criminalize private gun sales. As with Hubbard’s gun control push, the move will not stop a single mass shooting; it will, however, criminalize a mother who gives her college-age daughter a revolver for self-defense without first getting the federal government’s permission.

Hubbard did not point to a single 21st century mass shooting that was carried out with a privately purchased gun, and that is because nearly every one of the shooters got their guns at retail via a background check. The exceptions are the shooters who stole their guns.
Democrats have been using gun shows as an excuse to try to criminalize private gun sales since the 1990s, and Hubbard is parroting their flawed gun control mantra by:

  • Admitting that background checks are already the law of the land, then presenting gun shows as some kind of loophole.
  • Trying to make his gun control push sound altruistic by targeting flea markets as well as gun shows.
  • Presenting a false dichotomy between retail sellers and “personal sellers” to make it sound like a father who sells a gun to his son is skirting the law.

 

“Enough with the hateful comments,” Hubbard said, of which he received after he and country star  Dierks Bentley joined a campaign for more gun control in conjunction with Tom’s apparel company.

Billboard reports that Hubbard also wants to recruit other country artists to support gun control and is specifically asking “Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift,” and others to support restrictions on the Second Amendment.

Brexit threatens Pakistan’s trade perks with the EU

Britain’s departure from the EU robs Pakistan of a key ally in its fight to preserve preferential trading terms with the EU.

Since 2014, Pakistan has been the leading beneficiary of the EU’s preferential trading program for “vulnerable” developing countries, known as the Generalized System of Preferences Plus (GSP+). The scheme grants manufacturers, particularly Pakistani textilemakers, tariff-free access to Europe in exchange for Islamabad implementing reforms on human rights, working conditions, climate change and good governance.

Britain prides itself on having won this sweetheart deal for its former colony, a country of 210 million people, where many families have relatives living in the U.K. “It was us, Britain, who ensured Pakistan got tariff-free access to the European Union,” former Prime Minister David Cameron said at a campaign event during the 2014 European election.

British members of the European Parliament, who played a key role in lobbying for Pakistan’s GSP+ status, reckon that Pakistan would be increasingly isolated after Brexit. They said that they had to overcome resistance from EU heavyweights back in 2014, and warned that antipathy could well return when GSP+ comes up for renewal in January 2020.

“They’re not really going to have anybody here really looking out for them,” said British Conservative MEP Sajjad Karim, who is of Pakistani origin and founded the Friends of Pakistan group in the European Parliament. “The politics that we were able to deal with … nobody’s going to do that.”

The loss of GSP+ would be a big blow to Islamabad. Almost three-quarters of all European imports from the GSP+ program (which also covers countries such as the Philippines and Sri Lanka) come from Pakistan. Some 82 percent of these purchases are textiles and clothing. Pakistan’s exports to the EU increased by 38 percent over the three years since it signed on in 2014, rising to €6.2 billion in 2016 (EU exports were valued at €5.3 billion). The bump in exports turned the EU into Pakistan’s largest trade partner.

Human rights concerns

Several EU countries have deep concerns about Pakistan’s record on human rights, and were cool on the idea of bringing it into the free-trade fold in January 2014. Since then, Islamabad has upped the stakes by reintroducing the death penalty in December 2014, a massive taboo for the EU.

Karim said France and Germany both signaled opposition back in 2014. Portugal, a textile producing country, said it opposed Pakistan’s designation because it maintained “a more stringent interpretation” of the GSP+ criteria.

“Bringing [German Chancellor] Angela Merkel and [former French President] François Hollande to the table … that was David Cameron,” Karim said. He said Paris was opposed, while Germany was on the fence. The French and German missions in Brussels declined to comment when asked about their stance on the continuation of GSP+ after 2020.

Pakistan confirmed the U.K.’s role by awarding Karim the Star of the Great Leader, a civilian honor. His commendation specifically stated his contribution in getting Pakistan into the GSP+ club.

Wajid Khan, another British MEP of Pakistani origin, said that Pakistani diplomatic missions across Europe need to be “more proactive” after Brexit. Asked whether he was optimistic about the continuation of GSP+, Khan said: “It’s a challenge.”

The EU reviews the GSP+ program’s progress every two years. If it finds that any country failed to make enough progress on its commitments, it can suspend the scheme.

But despite Pakistan’s patchy record, Islambad won a clean bill of health from the Commission in an interim assessment last month. The latest report broadly concluded the GSP+ was working across the countries involved, but also cautioned that Pakistan’s progress has been “mixed.” The Commission said it had “serious concerns” about human rights issues and urged Pakistan to “step up its efforts” to keep to its promises.

A separate report published in October last year by the Pakistan Workers Confederation, one of the local monitors of the GSP+ program, noted Pakistan’s lack of progress on labor rights. “Unfortunately, labor law reform has never been any [Pakistani] government’s priority,” the report said. According to a report by Human Rights Watch, other conditions — progress on women’s rights, religious freedom, protecting activists and journalists — has either remained poor or deteriorated.

Asked about the Commission’s report during a press briefing, Commission spokesperson Daniel Rosario said: “This is a dynamic process … This is also a way for engaging directly with these countries to address these problems.”

Madi Sharma, who leads the Women’s Economic and Social Think Tank, opposed Pakistan’s continuing membership, saying: “the Commission’s just turning a blind eye” to Pakistan’s violations of the agreement.

Preserving stability

For their part, the Pakistanis seemed unperturbed. “We have good relations with many countries and many MEPs and that will continue after Brexit,” a senior Pakistani diplomat said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. The embassy did not provide an official statement.

Pakistan can draw some heart from the fact that it is very difficult to lose GSP+. So far, only Sri Lanka has ever lost the designation mid-term — from 2010 to 2017 — but that was in the extreme circumstances of a war.

Pakistan also profits from a growing belief that trade interaction is the best way to maintain stability in a nuclear-armed country plagued by tribal and Islamist unrest.

Even France is stressing the importance of commercial interaction. According to Pakistan’s Nation newspaper, Marc Baréty, French ambassador to Pakistan, last month visited the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) to stress that President Emmanuel Macron was prioritizing trade as a way to guarantee economic stability.

France’s embassy in Islamabad declined to give more information on the visit.

Rashid Yaqoob, a spokesperson for the LCCI, who attended the meeting with Baréty, noted that the criticism of Pakistan in January’s GSP+ report were “not encouraging” but predicted the “program will keep going.”

Asked how that would be possible, Yaqoob said simply: “backdoor diplomacy.”

But back in Brussels, MEP Karim was far less sanguine.

“Next time round, when we’re not here, Pakistan’s in trouble. They’re in big trouble,” he said.

Watch: Michael Moore Claims Hillary Clinton 'Beat' Donald Trump

Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore spoke at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York City on Saturday and declared that Hillary Clinton “beat” President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

The Where to Invade Next filmmaker formally endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday alongside Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and declared that Hillary Clinton “beat” Trump in 2016.

“The polls will show you that there are four or five Democrats — consistently it shows head to head — [who] can beat Trump,” Moore said. “But beating him isn’t enough. Hillary beat him. That’s not enough. We need not only to crush Trump at the polls, afterwards we need to fix this rotten, corrupt economic system that gave us Donald Trump and everything else we’re dealing with.”

Despite Moore’s claims, Clinton did not “beat” Trump in 2016, as Trump surpassed the 270 Electoral College threshold with 306 electoral votes (later reduced to 304 due to two faithless electors) compared to Clinton’s 227. Trump won, in part, due to victories in key swing states — such as Florida — and his ability to flip Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan red.

Moore also lamented the existence of the Electoral College, calling it — not Sanders — “too old.”

“Well here’s what’s too old. The Electoral College is too old. That’s what’s too old,” the Fahrenheit 11/9 director said. “A $7.25 minimum wage– that’s too old. Women not being paid the same as men– that’s too old.”
