    The ACLU is one of those allies, and on Wednesday it celebrated something we had no idea existed: the first-ever International Pronouns Day. . .Today is International Pronouns Day! International Pronouns Day acknowledges that referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic human dignity. We'd love to hear what you're doing to celebrate!

    The following dialog took place on The View: JOY BEHAR: Hillary is in a quandary in my opinion, because she’s talking about violence against women and sexual harassment and all that stuff and her husband has a checkered past to put it mildly, so she is in a bind….. PAULA FARIS: There are accusations but there are three women that claim that he did things to them that they didn’t want. One of them is Paula Jones…. Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey. They say that he either exposed himself to them, raped them or groped them. These are three accusations…. BEHAR:...

    The self-proclaimed Climate Prophets who claim they can predict climate years in advance are either deliberately lying or incredibly stupid. Weather related scientists don't know enough about the factors that control daily weather to make more than approximate predictions of short term weather. How can anyone believe weather scientists can accurately predict weather decades in advance? If you look at a Weather Bureau forecast you will notice that if it predicts the possibility of rain the prediction will show the probability of rain as a percentage. The probability of rain might by 20% or maybe 60%. Meteorologists know rain can...
  • Hungary Bans Gender Studies Since It’s ‘an Ideology, Not a Science’

    Hungary has banned gender studies from universities due to low enrollment, which causes waste of tax payer money, and because there are no more than two sexes. From Fox News: Left-wing critics say it’s academically problematic, politically unheard of in a democratic society, and argue gender studies degrees do lead to jobs. Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has been called the Donald Trump of Europe, signed the decree, which went into effect Saturday, removing gender studies from a list of approved master’s programs, though students already enrolled will be grandfathered in. “The Hungarian government is of the clear view that...

    Business Insider ^ | 02/04/2016 | Linette Lopez
    Infamous former Turing CEO Martin Shkreli and Howard Schiller, the interim chief executive of the pharmaceutical company Valeant, just faced Congress. Legislators on Thursday wanted them to answer for dramatic drug-price increases that affect the lives of Americans. Shkreli caught national attention when his company purchased a lifesaving drug called Daraprim and then raised the price by over 5,000%. Wall Street was closely watching Schiller; Valeant's stock was a darling until accusations of malfeasance from a short seller and government scrutiny over pricing chopped off a quarter of its stock price last year. At the hearing, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland)...

    "News that Turing, Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. and other drugmakers have bought rights to old, cheap medicines that are the only treatment for serious diseases and then hiked prices severalfold has angered patients. It's triggered government investigations, politicians' proposals to fight "price gouging," heavy media scrutiny and a big slump in biotech stock prices." "Turing's Shkreli, under fire from all sides, said late last month that he would lower the price of Daraprim, but hasn't so far. A Turing spokesman didn't respond to a request for comment Thursday but recently noted the company is capping patient copayments at $10."

    Seventeen years after it was withdrawn from U.S. markets, a synthetic version of the active ingredient in marijuana is going back on sale as a prescription treatment for the vomiting and nausea that often accompany chemotherapy, the drug's manufacturer said Tuesday. Valeant Pharmaceuticals International hopes to begin selling Cesamet in the next two to three weeks, company president Wes Wheeler said. The Costa Mesa, California, company received Food and Drug Administration approval Monday to resume sales of the drug, which it bought from Eli Lilly and Co. in 2004. Valeant currently sells the drug, also called nabilone, in Canada. Lilly...

  • Titan Falling – Pershing Square and Bill Ackman Face Dark Days

    04/05/2016 11:33:18 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | April 5, 2016 | Steve Sherman
    Last fall, I wrote a piece about Hedge Fund Billionaire Bill Ackman and his unmitigated assault on the health products company Herbalife; Battle of The Hedge Fund Titans. It was an interesting piece about one man’s personal vendetta and attempt to take down a famously successful American company. The short of it (no pun intended), is that Bill Ackman used his hedge fund company, Pershing Square, to take a $1 Billion short position in Herbalife. Thus, banking on the failure of the company to profit immensely, while actually attempting to trigger that failure. Herbalife fought back and the demise of...

    Valeant shares plunged as much as 40 percent after an influential short-seller accused the company of fraud, saying it used its relationship with specialty pharmacies to inflate revenue. With the stock’s dramatic swings, Ackman’s portfolio lost as much as $820 million during the day but the loss lessened to roughly $650 million as the price inched up again in mid-afternoon. Cable television station CNBC reported that Ackman bought an additional 2 million shares of Valeant on Wednesday.

    VATICAN CITY, October 16, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A group at the Vatican’s Youth Synod has called for the Catholic Church to pay more attention to homosexuals and the “realities” they face, specifically mentioning “marriage,” surrogate pregnancy, and adoption. “[...]There is the issue of what to do and how to act with homosexuals, which cannot remain outside of our pastoral activity and other realities such as marriages between homosexuals, wombs for rent, adoption on the part of couples of the same sex, all of which are current issues and favored and sponsored by international governmental institutions,” said a group of Spanish-speaking...

    J.C. Penney’s stock hit a 13-year low Wednesday as investors grow increasingly concerned about the future of the 112 year old iconic American retailer. Shares plunged more than 15% at one point and briefly dipped below $10 a share — a level they have not touched since November 2000. Several analysts are predicting that J.C. Penney did not have a good back to school shopping season, and that sales continued to plummet in late August and early September. Investors had already been spooked by reports that J.C. Penney might be seeking to raise more cash through the sale of new...

    J.C. Penney Co Inc (JCP.N) said on Monday that Michael Francis, a key member of the "dream team" the retailer assembled to carry out its transformation of everything from pricing to merchandising, was leaving the company, just months after he was lured from Target Corp (TGT.N). The move, announced in a brief statement, comes weeks after the department store operator said it had a worse-than-expected 18.9 percent drop in same-store sales for the first quarter as it tried to wean consumers off of coupons and frequent discounts as it adopted everyday prices. Francis, 49, was president and responsible for marketing...

    Legendary investor George Soros‘ Soros Fund Management has taken a 7.9% stake in the retailer, according to an SEC filing Thursday. The news sent J.C.

At that price, Soros’ holdings are worth $283 million.Soros, who famously “broke the Bank of England” in 1992 as part of a group that heavily shorted the British pound, owns just under 17.4 million shares of J.C. Penney, according to the filing. His stake puts him among the retailer’s five largest shareholders.

    NEW YORK — J.C. Penney said Friday that it will be closing anywhere from 130 to 140 stores as well as two distribution centers over the next several months as it aims to improve profitability in the era of online shopping. The closures represent about 13 percent to 14 percent of the department store operator's current store count, and less than 5 percent of total annual sales. The company said that it would also initiate a voluntary early retirement program for about 6,000 eligible employees.

    FULL TITLE: World war brew: J.C. Penney places huge billboard advert over Interstate Highway for kettle 'that looks just like Hitler' Retailer J.C. Penney may want to rethink the design of their new kettle after a string of customers complained it looks remarkably like Hitler. The retailer advertised the new kettle - which is exclusively available in its stores - on a huge billboard over the 405 Interstate Highway in southern California. But rather than being tempted into buying new kitchen equipment, commuters driving along the route near Culver City found themselves instantly reminded of the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler....

    We don’t know how, but Adolf Hitler somehow managed to sneak past a photographer, several advertising executives and J.C. Penney’s marketing department and make it onto a billboard. Disguising himself as a teapot might have had something to do with it, but once you’ve seen him, it’s impossible not to see.

    J.C. Penney (JCP, Fortune 500) shares finished up 11.6% Friday following news late Thursday that hedge fund mogul George Soros has taken a large stake in the retailer, and a report from CNBC Friday afternoon that Goldman Sachs has secured $1.75 billion in financing for the company. Earlier this month, the troubled retailer announced that CEO Ron Johnson was leaving after just a year and a half. Johnson, a former Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) executive, had instituted ambitious changes at J.C. Penney stores in an attempt to remake the brand. Sales plummeted during his tenure, sinking 28% in the fourth...
