i admit you are somewhat intelligent and witty (though misdirected), but you do lack wisdom, humility, and integrity. no mystery there.
you and i will both die relatively soon. i gather you hold no faith in God. fine. if you stand correct, and my belief in God is mistaken, you die hopeless. i die with hope, and yet, i still die hopeless in reality.
if there IS a God, however, you STILL die without hope, while i am spared, if you will. either way, you die without any hope. i die with a future hope; you LOSE EITHER WAY and die hopeless regardless.
my QUESTION: truly no offense, but RATIONALLY SPEAKING, who is the greater 'dimwit', as you so often refer to others?
i gather you're making some money on rcpi, while you've lost on others as you've pointed out.
"What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?" mark 8:36
surely you agree eternity is infinitely more important than a few temporary bucks.
why do i waste my time on you, you wonder. because there is hope for you. ironically, people as yourself are often more inclined to discovering God as you perceive a need for Him, while most in the pews sit idle, with little perception of any need for the God with whom they have no relationship. the greater we comprehend our separation from God, the greater potential for the realization of our hopelessness apart from Him. That's why Jesus ate with prostitutes, tax collectors, and 'sinners', and not the self-righteous pharisees who held onto religion without any apparent need for God.
my brother-in-law has professed at texas a&m for the past 29 years. plenty of money, and very intelligent and highly regarded for his research and teaching. he literally blew his brains out friday. this occurs all the time now, as hopelessness runs needlessly rampant.
anyway, the question remains...
the word of the day is DRUG.
- rock received a response regarding the FORMULATION of Anatabloc
- the FDA CONSIDERS anatabine citrate to BE a DRUG
- mullan ~ "we are ADVANCING our lead compound as a DRUG into HUMAN clinical trials."
while anatabloc may be a bit trickier receiving in the short-term, this is GREAT news from an investor standpoint, imo.
why is it down today? I think people, in general, are nervous and misled creatures. not necessarily a bad thing, just reality.
If the Taj Mahal closes, Trump Entertainment would have no remaining properties and would presumably go out of business.
McDonnell assumes 177k in car rides and other stuff. Donald walks away from many HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars he owes the past few decades in bankruptcies. and yet, Donald is worth 3.9 billion dollars.
which one is the #$%$?
I don't even think Donald's haircut, or lack thereof, is legal. his license for that thing ran out in the 70s.
the governor should have reported the gifts. that was his error, imo, not the gifts themselves. that said, and with similar discernment, perhaps 99% of all politicians should be convicted as well. compromising is never worth it...not in politics, not in family, not in business, not on taxes. one never gets away with it. oh, but many do, I hear some say. it may appear that way. but no...they don't.
just watched Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story.
good movie. ben was poor, ridiculed, and called dumb at an early age. his mom was unable to read and only made it to the third grade. ben later became the top neurosurgeon in the world (johns hopkins), and awarded 38 honorary doctorate degrees. now a potential candidate for the 2016 presidential election. i'm looking forward to the opportunity of meeting him this tuesday. but if you only watched the beginning of the movie...
jesus was crucified (bear with me). yet all twelve disciples faced death, claiming he rose from the dead. one may have been crazy enough to die for a known lie (had they made it up), but not all twelve. if you read Revelation, you discover how the story ends. many mock now, but what a shocking ending!
btw, a professor at Texas A&M, by way of computer program with astrology, has "gone back in time" and discovered there indeed was a solar eclipse on the precise day Jesus was crucified (the skies turned dark as he died, moving the roman centurion watching him die, exclaim, "Truly this was the Son of God!") The prof then went back thirty-three years to the day of Jesus' birth and found that a giant 'star' did appear for his birth. he discovered it was actually what astrologers refer to as the 'king star' passing near the 'king planet' (ironic?), and producing the effect of one huge star! he explains how the 'star lasted longer than normal' by way of retrograde motion, where a star only appears to move backwards for a time. anyway, a moving presentation in person by prof. rick larson (google star of bethlehem documentary with rick larson, if interested).
the anatabloc story could easily become a movie years from now, with all the challenges it has faced. but if you simply watch the beginning...
from 'The Legal Examiner' this morning in Charlottesville, VA:
'The company (Rock Creek) commented on its decision to halt production of the dietary supplements, “until it completes a review of how the nutritional supplement business may affect its research program to develop other drugs.” In its recent statement, “the company said it is studying the chemical’s anti-inflammatory properties in relation to multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and auto-immune thyroiditis.”
The FDA involvement with Star Scientific has been focused on two things—the claims of beneficial results for those with illnesses like multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease and the use of unapproved chemical ingredients in a dietary supplement. “The agency (FDA) requires manufacturers and distributors that want to market dietary supplements with new ingredients to notify it and submit evidence that the ingredients will reasonably be expected to be safe under the conditions of use recommended or suggested in the labeling,” according to the FDA’s website.'
it's all relative. a million dollars to YOU is a lot, but to bill gates, it's less than the interest he earns daily. take your #$%$, for instance. it may seem a summer sausage to YOU, but to others, it's merely a little smokie. but I'm not here to judge. you deal the hand you're dealt. regards.
"God teaches loving your neighbor and forgiveness - Rush teaches that liberals are prone to suicide and depression because they are unhappy."
i can't speak for rush, but i could rationally see how liberals MIGHT be more prone to depression and/or suicide (not sure if this is indeed true). conservatives are more apt, in GENERAL, to know God, and thereby perceive a greater hope than those without God.
and while God does teach loving your neighbor and forgiveness, he also teaches consequence for behavior, whether good or bad. even though he may forgive (a person must genuinely seek forgiveness), the consequence often remains. he is both a loving AND a fearful God. that's why "the fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of wisdom". otherwise, you're left with worldly wisdom, which is a far cry, i'm afraid.
while this is not a political forum, i will offer this. both republicans and democrats are filled with hypocrites, for they are all human...myself included. however, and this might sting some, i personally cannot believe in the Bible AND vote democrat. i just cannot. way too many conflicting values. i understand each democrat and republican vary on where they stand politically, but in GENERAL, the democratic belief 'system' is largely opposed to the morals and discernment found in scripture.
the Bible teaches that God will bless a nation that follows Him. hopefully, a man like ben carson will take the reigns. but that's me. okay, back to rcpi. and may the thumbs down begin. btw, jesus received many thumbs down, but it matters little. :)
perhaps a more fitting analogy might include filing for a new patent. upon filing, it may easily become a 'back and forth' communication b/w the gov and the inventor, requiring more information, explanation, etc. each patent is taken into consideration individually, and even though one may understand how the patent filing works, it could necessitate additional follow-ups. it may not be that the inventor made an error, but that all considerations and what-not must be clear, orderly, and well-protected, etc. i can only imagine how tedious it must be with an ind.
2. mullan an expert at this? i was not aware of that. you may be thinking of chapman, who used to work for quintiles.
3. mcdonnell was just hired to the board, who also used to work for quintiles
they are working through the fda requirements. i don't see where mistakes have been made with the new team. to deem mullan as the "same as the old boss" is completely unfounded.
i'll agree. three bucks from forty-eight cents is certainly bullish, and at the same time, a bit bearish from my perspective/optimism. either way, we're on the same side. cheers! :)
no offense meant. I just believe the 'true' longs will be awaiting double digits at the very least. not that there's anything wrong with realizing profits sooner. that's completely understandable and fine. I just feel those who have been around for years will be more patient, and in general, hold out for more than three bucks. the potential is too great, imo.
"at some point they'll see it on the CNBC crawl trading over $3. I understand I am painting a very bullish outcome here."
you've painted a rather bearish outcome, imo.
i understand the frustration, for sure. i know they've been extremely busy. i also realize it wouldn't take long for a quick update to shareholders. however, there's not much the shareholder could do about it, so i'd rather they went to the authorities and had corrective measures taken first. i would definitely expect an update afterward. instead of merely being told what action WILL be pursued, they would disclose what course WAS taken. but again, i'm with you on the grievance.
rock creek is still awaiting to hear from fda on ind ~ verified.
today's pr is in regards to the European strategy to coincide simultaneously with u.s. efforts.
familiar territory for mullan in uk.
"Quotient Clinical will employ its RapidFACT™ (Rapid Formulation development And Clinical Testing) service to identify the next generation of oral Anatabine Citrate formulations for progression into multiple pivotal Phase 2 proof of concept studies." ~ program is expedited as quickly as possible regardless of u.s. strategy.
"Our Translational Pharmaceutics platform is proven to reduce program timelines and costs and we look forward to working with Rock Creek to accelerate their development plan". ~ less time, fewer costs
