Manpower Inc. Calls on 1,000 of the World's Leading Corporations to Join the Fight to End Human Trafficking Now! MILWAUKEE, WI, USA, 6 December 2006 /PRNewswire/ -- The fight to end modern day slavery enters a new phase today with a call from Manpower Inc. (NYSE: MAN) to 1,000 of the world's largest companies to help end human trafficking. In January 2006, Manpower Inc., a world leader in the employment services industry, was the first global corporation to sign up to the Athens Ethical Principles. The Principles declare a "zero tolerance" policy for working with any entity benefiting in any way from human trafficking, including clients, vendors and business partners. The Athens Ethical Principles are an initiative of the "End Human Trafficking Now!" (EHTN!) campaign, built on a partnership of corporations, organizations and committed individuals, and is championed by the Suzanne Mubarak Women's International Peace Movement. The campaign is endorsed by a host of global organizations including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Labor Organization. "Trafficking human beings is now the third largest illegal industry on the planet, following only arms and drug smuggling," said David Arkless, Manpower Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Special Envoy for the EHTN! campaign. "It is a modern form of slavery and no matter where companies are operating, their supply chains could be benefiting from trafficking. We cannot ignore this exploitation and we encourage other companies to join us in standing against this industry." An estimated 12.3 million people are forced into labor or sexual servitude every year worldwide. The International Labor Organization estimates that $32 billion is earned annually from forced labor, while sexual exploitation of women and children brings in $28 billion. Companies can sign up for the Athens Ethical Principles and learn more about the End Human Trafficking Now! campaign by going to Manpower's website at *******www.manpower****/mpcom/content.jsp?articleid=449 or the Suzanne Mubarak Women's International Peace Movement at www.endhumantraffickingnow****. In October 2006, Manpower Inc. expanded its social responsibility program to encompass a broader range of initiatives that build upon its heritage as the industry leader in workforce development for more than 50 years. The company's expanded social responsibility platform leverages Manpower's history of innovation in providing a bridge to employment for disadvantaged individuals and extends these efforts to additional groups of people in need of assistance. The four pillars of the company's social responsibility platform are: workforce development, disaster recovery, reaching out to refugees and combating human trafficking.

DENDREON'S PROVENGE GRANTED 6-MONTH FDA PRIORITY REVIEW FOR TREATMENT OF ADVANCED, LATE-STAGE PROSTATE CANCER More than one million men in the United States have prostate cancer, with an estimated 232,000 new cases of prostate cancer diagnosed each year. More than 30,000 men die each year of the disease. On January 16, 2007 Dendreon Corporation announced that the FDA has accepted for filing and has assigned priority review status to the Company's Biologics License Application (BLA) for PROVENGE (sipuleucel-T), its investigational active cellular immunotherapy for the treatment of asymptomatic, metastatic, androgen-independent (also known as hormone refractory) prostate cancer. Priority Review is granted to products that, if approved, would provide a significant improvement in the safety or effectiveness of the treatment, diagnosis or prevention of a serious or life-threatening disease. Clinical trials have shown that PROVENGE increases survival and is generally well tolerated in men with late-stage prostate cancer, a highly prevalent disease for which there are currently few available treatment options. PROVENGE may represent the first in a new class of active cellular immunotherapies (ACIs) that are uniquely designed to stimulate a patient's own immune system to treat cancer.

FDA Approves LIALDA™ (mesalamine), the First Oral Once-Daily Mesalamine For Patients With Active, Mild to Moderate Ulcerative Colitis Basingstoke, UK and Philadelphia, US - January 16, 2007 / PRNewswire / — Shire plc (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPGY, TSX: SHQ) announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved LIALDA™ (mesalamine) with MMX® technology, indicated for the induction of remission in patients with active, mild to moderate ulcerative colitis. LIALDA is the first and only FDA-approved once-daily oral formulation of mesalamine. Mesalamines are a part of a drug class called aminosalicylates, which contain 5-aminosalicyclic acid (5-ASA), a well-established drug of choice and often a first-line treatment for patients with mild to moderate ulcerative colitis. Shire will launch LIALDA in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2007. Once-daily LIALDA with MMX technology contains the highest mesalamine dose per tablet (1.2 g), so patients can take as few as two tablets once daily. Other currently available mesalamines require three to four times daily dosing and 6 to 16 pills a day. A recent study conducted by the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) found that 65 percent of patients with ulcerative colitis are poorly compliant with their medication, citing pill burden and inconvenience associated with the medication. "As the first oral once-a-day treatment option for ulcerative colitis, the approval of LIALDA in the United States is great news for patients and physicians when managing this serious condition," said Matthew Emmens, Shire Chief Executive Officer. "Once-daily LIALDA is one of several medicines Shire expects to launch in the U.S. and Europe in 2007." The FDA approval was based on the results of two Phase III clinical studies that found LIALDA (2.4 g/day and 4.8 g/day) was effective in inducing remission in patients with active, mild to moderate ulcerative colitis compared to placebo after eight weeks of treatment. LIALDA is generally well tolerated and has a similar safety profile to other currently available mesalamines. "In clinical trials, LIALDA proved to be an effective medication, providing superior rates of remission compared to placebo for people with ulcerative colitis," said lead study investigator, Gary R. Lichtenstein, M.D., director of the Center for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. "This is the first new mesalamine treatment to enter the market since 2000, filling a major void for physicians and people with ulcerative colitis and simplifying treatment of this disease." "The introduction of new treatments with more convenient dosing regimens may be an important step in helping patients with ulcerative colitis remain compliant with their medication," said Jonathan Braun, M.D., Ph.D., chair of CCFA's National Scientific Advisory Committee. Shire has licensed from Giuliani S.p.A. the exclusive rights to develop and commercialize LIALDA in the U.S., Canada, Europe -- known as MEZAVANT™ -- (excluding Italy) and the Pacific Rim. Giuliani S.p.A. retains the development and commercialization rights in Italy. Cosmo Pharmaceuticals S.p.A., Milan developed the MMX technology and owns the trademark, MMX.

AGREEMENT AIMED AT DEVELOPING HIGHER YIELDING CROPS THAT ARE MORE TOLERANT TO ADVERSE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS BASF and Monsanto Company have announced a long term joint research and development R&D and commercialization collaboration in plant biotechnology that will focus on the development of high yielding crops and crops that are more tolerant to adverse environmental conditions such as drought. The companies will dedicate a joint budget of potentially $1.5 billion to fund a dedicated pipeline of yield and stress tolerance traits for corn, soybeans, cotton and canola. Under this collaboration: Each company will maintain independent trait discovery programs. Each company will nominate specific candidate genes and the most promising candidates will be advanced for accelerated joint development and for commercialization in the Monsanto pipeline. The two companies expect to generate a greater number of viable research projects than they could have done on their own, accelerate the development of new products, and bring a greater number of traits to the market at a faster speed. The nominated projects will be jointly funded at a 50-50 cost sharing through each phase of development as the candidate gene works its way toward commercial status. Products that emerge from the joint development will be commercialized by Monsanto. The companies have agreed to share profits associated with commercialized products, with Monsanto receiving 60 percent of net profits and BASF receiving 40 percent of net profits.

Inside a NASCAR racecar, temperatures can reach up to 140 degrees during a race. While special equipment and training make it tolerable for racecar drivers like Jeff Burton, he wants parents and caregivers to understand that it is extremely dangerous for small children to be left alone in a car, even if it’s only for a short period of time. Safe Kids Worldwide and General Motors have been working together for the last seven years to raise awareness on this issue. Especially, since it is a lot easier for children to get heat exhaustion, than it is for an adult. A child’s core body temperature increases three to five times faster than an adult and unfortunately, in the last nine years, at least 320 small children have died due to heatstroke after being trapped in or intentionally left in automobiles. Experts say nearly 40 percent of child hyperthermia is change-of-schedule related, for example, when dad takes the children to daycare instead of mom who usually does, and forgets the child is in the backseat. The temperature difference between the outside of the car and the inside can be about 45 to 50 degrees or more. And it doesn’t even have to be a hot sunny day. Temperatures can rise very quickly in a car with the windows rolled up. In fact, average tests have shown an increase of 19 to 20 degrees in just ten minutes.

Hello , BONJOUR ,ЗДРАВСТВУЛТЕ!, CIAO Jambo, Merhaba !!!!! UNESCO has named 2007 International Year of Rumi the number-one, Hello , BONJOUR ,ЗДРАВСТВУЛТЕ!, CIAO Jambo, Merhaba !!!!! UNESCO has named 2007 International Year of Rumi the number-one, best-selling poet of the United States whose verses read by celebrities like Deepak Chopra,Madonna, Goldie Hawn and Demi Moore . According to Time Magazine Rumi is,Mystic of the Century and according to the New York Times Rumi is the most influential poet in America since the 1960s who has outsold Shakespeare . Who is this Mevlana Mohammed Jelaled-din Rumi , that over 700 years after his death his words and thoughts are causing such a stir and Westerns say that Rumi's philosophy is crucial for peace on the planet today?First , here is one way in which he described himself : Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu, Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion or cultural system. I am not from the East or the West, not out of the ocean or up from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not composed of elements at all. I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or the next, did not descend from Adam and Eve or any origin story. My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless. Neither body or soul. I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner, only that breath breathing human being. Rumi's popularity is all the more remarkable given the suspicions between America and the Muslim world. What is it about Rumi that attracts so many Americans who says : My Mother is Love My Father is Love My Prophet is Love My God is Love I am a child of Love I have come only to speak of Love . America and the Muslim world each insist on viewing the other through its own cultural lens. What Americans cherish as freedom, the Muslim world views as tending towards debauchery. What many Muslims consider pious restraint, Americans see as evidence of control by a misogynist theocracy. Amidst these tensions, Americans from all walks of life are reading Rumi. If the Muslim world and America are so seemingly incomprehensible to each other, how has a medieval dervish from the East nestled so close to America's heart? The answer must be Rumi, was a philosopher and mystic of Islam, but not a Muslim of the orthodox type. His doctrine advocated unlimited tolerance, positive reasoning, goodness, charity and awareness through love. To him and to his disciples all religions were more or less truth. Looking with the same eye on Muslim, Jew and Christian alike, his peaceful and tolerant teaching has appealed to men of all sects and creeds. Come, come again... Whatever you are... Whether you are infidel, idolater or fireworshipper. Whether you have broken your vows of repentance a hundred times This is not the gate of despair, This is the gate of hope. Come, come again... Best regards

Phil Johnson, M.D. discusses why it's so important for HIV/AIDS patients to follow their antiretroviral (ARV) medication regimen as prescribed. During active infection, up to 10 billion HIV particles will be created each day. This provides ample chance for the virus to mutate in ways that provide resistance to the medication. By keeping the blood levels of the ARV medication high, that will keep the viral load low and reduce the opportunity for resistance mutations to flourish. When HIV develops resistance to one medication, it may develop resistance to other ones at the same time. Patients may also have to deal with side effects such as the redistribution of fat in the body and increases to their cholesterol level. Not every patient can tolerate every ARV. Therefore, it's critical for patients to make every ARV last as long as possible. When people with resistant HIV have unprotected sex, they may transmit resistant HIV to their sex partners, meaning the newly infected person will have far fewer treatment options. Genetic testing of the virus can be used to determine which medicaions the patient's particular strain(s) will be resistant to.
