That was all too predictable, but interesting timing nonetheless. Puerto Rico is a poor place with a high Democratic majority, and the subsidies its citizens receive from its government (voted in by the same citizens) were never sustainable.
Again, the basic problem with this logic is that GE cannot enter a segment that does not have unioned employees, and I suspect that DDD does not have unioned employees.
Do some research before you spout off, basher. The apparent loss of efficacy was associated with a synergistic effect with latanoprost.
Well, Greece's economy is much worse. We can afford it (and yes, being a reserve currency helps), but Greece cannot.
Well, I read something a week ago that says Greece spends 80% of its budget on pensions, and basically all of the infrastructure (like schools, and even school supplies) is falling apart. They are angry about the perception that Greece is not getting the money it needs to fund those things, thus causing an even deeper recession -- which is currently ongoing.
Greece needs not just a bailout, but a massive bailout.
Greece is full of poor retirees. The main issue is demographics. They want to live like the rest of Europe and have low retirement ages, but they don't have the economic strength to do it.
I have a strong suspicion that Yahoo administrators have been hacked.
Reposting some saved text.
* Rhopressa seems to work by opening up another drainage pathway -- via the "trabecular meshwork" (TM) of the eye. It also apparently reduces fluid production (the only thing timolol does) and "Episcleral Venous Pressure". When it goes through the TM, it provides nutrients to the eye, which may actually reverse glaucoma! (google: "Rhopressa nutrient")
* Note that all trial patients flushed any previous medication from their system before starting the trial. Even up to a few weeks in, Latanoprost is synergistic with Rhopressa due to the mechanism of action -- as far as I can tell, latanoprost "primes" Rhopressa's mechanism of action.
* Latanoprost is not synergistic with timolol in the same way.
* Both latanoprost and timolol have some potential negative side-effects (e.g. eye color change for latanoprost, many nasty things for timolol.. some people are just allergic to either I think) that Rhopressa doesn't have.
* Rhopressa actually works most effectively for LOW IOPs, which means it can be taken not as a last line of defense but as soon as patients are diagnosed. Timolol and prostaglandins like latanoprost work better at higher IOPs.
