[socialactionfoundationforequity:2689 "Blue is for the boy and pink is for the girl"

Buzz It

Please find a report about the pink  "viagra" for women in the offing.

 

Washington, May 24 (ANI): Good news for women who want to perk up the action in their bedroom-the Food and Drug Administration committee is thinking of endorsing the first pill designed to do for women what Viagra does for men-boost their sex lives.

 

A German pharmaceutical giant wants to sell a drug with the decidedly unsexy name "flibanserin," which has shown prowess for sparking a woman's sexual desire by fiddling with her brain chemicals.

 

The FDA's Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee will meet on June 18 to consider the request.

But the prospect of the drug's approval has already triggered debate over whether the medication, like others in the pipeline, represents a long-sought step toward equity for women's health or the latest example of the pharmaceutical industry fabricating a questionable disorder to sell unnecessary and potentially dangerous drugs.

 

"Achieving a happy and healthy sex life can be a real and important problem for some women. But we have lots of questions about the 'pink Viagra,'" the Washington Post quoted Amy Allina of the National Women's Health Network, a Washington-based advocacy group, as saying.

 

Viagra's catapult to blockbuster status after its 1998 approval set off a flurry of interest in me-too medications for women.

However, drugmaker Pfizer's hopes that its "little blue pill" would also ignite female libido fizzled, making it clear that a woman's sexuality is more complicated than a man's.

 

But, Germany's Boehringer Ingelheim is optimistic that flibanserin is on the verge of becoming the first prescription medication to tap what some have estimated could be a 2 billion dollar market in the United States alone.

 

"We believe women deserve options and we're hoping flibanserin may represent a safe and effective option for many women," said Michael Sand, who heads the company's clinical research on flibanserin.

Scientists found that flibanserin, developed as an antidepressant, was ineffective for treatment of depression.

But the drug appeared to produce an unexpected side effect: boosting women's libido.

 

This prompted the company to study it for hypoactive sexual desire disorder, or HSDD, an otherwise unexplained loss of sexual thoughts, fantasies and desire that can cause significant emotional distress.

 

Some research suggests 10 percent of women may suffer from HSDD.

 

"It's not that they are averse to sex. It's just that they don't care about it. They just stop thinking about it. It's like a switch has been flipped. It's a loss for them. They miss it. And they want it back," said Anita H. Clayton, a professor of psychiatry and neurobehavioral sciences at the University of Virginia who has studied the drug for the company. (ANI)

What matters is what he puts in his dog's coffee.

I switched over to tubeless with sealant this past month. While I
haven't had any punctures yet, the ride alone is worth the switch. I'm
using Ultegra WH-6700's and Specialized tubeless tires, with Slime.

No, you do not. Is it worth the time and energy to
continue to associate with them, if only in an
adversarial relationship? How do you protect those
who ought not be burned?

Dumbass -

It'll probably be business as usual again soon because:

Floyd is not credible.

Dumbass -

Yep.

I'd like to add that the problem with Floyd and Tyler's campaigns is
since they were built on lies, they ended up alienating nearly
*everyone* including their hardcore fans.

As for being inserted right back into the fold: that's the way it's
happening in the NFL too. Guys get a dirty drug test, they serve their
4 game suspension, then they start playing again. Rather than making
it some sort of big moral issue, look at it as a rules infraction,
make someone take their punishment, then go on from there. It's the
right way to treat the issue too since the population in general dopes
up every day (caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, THC, Viagra, ibuprofen,
birth control hormones, etc.). Athletes should not be held to a higher
standard than everyone else - it's unrealistic and will only result in
disappointment. Rather, they should be held to the same standard as
everyone else.

thanks,

Fred. presented by Gringioni.

Whether it's used as a training device, or a form of quantified
recreational doping, SCRAM can now be used to improve, and maintain,
the required level of inebriation.

An ankle bracelet would be unacceptable in cycling, so a modified
heart monitor would do nicely.

Imagine impressing other rbridiots and LIVEDRUNK afficionados.

Transforming Open Data in a Multipolar World
Hans Rosling and Beth Noveck, two influential thinkers on the power of open data, information visualization, and innovation in governance and development, shared their ideas on how the Bank's new Open Data policy is helping transform the world. Rosling's presentation was grounded in solid statistics drawn from World Bank data, but using powerful animations to transform the data into moving bubbles and flowing curves that make global trends more clear, intuitive, and even playful.

The Next Big Idea - Africa as the Next BRIC
What trillion dollar economy has grown faster than Brazil and India between 2000 and 2010 in nominal dollar terms, and is projected by the IMF to grow faster than Brazil between 2010 and 2015? The answer may surprise you: it is Sub-Saharan Africa! As the world gets out of the global recession, Africa can serve as a new source of global demand, said World Bank Managing Director Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, adding that Africa is ripe for consideration as a new market in which to invest, and not just a destination for aid.

Haiti Remittances Key to Earthquake Recovery            
Yolene Henry lost three cousins in Haiti's devastating earthquake. Her niece needed medical treatment, and her mother, brother and his family were sleeping outside their damaged home in tents. Henry responded like many others in Haitian diaspora: she increased the amount of money she sent to her relatives in Haiti. The diaspora officially sent $1.4 billion in remittances to Haiti in 2008, and unofficially may have sent as much as $2 billion, according to World Bank's Outlook for Remittance Flows 2010-11. Remittances are expected to surge 20% in 2010. To tap the wealth of the diaspora, the report proposes that Haiti issue reconstruction diaspora bonds. Read More
 
 
Seeking Your Input on How the World Bank Can Support Africa Better
For the past five years, the World Bank has based its support to Africa on the Africa Action Plan. However, changes in the global economy as well as a new economic environment in Africa make it necessary to renew our approach. Preparation of a new strategy is underway and the World Bank is seeking stakeholder input to inform the strategy. A short consultations note (pdf) has been posted. You can share your views online or by sending an email to africaconsult@worldbank.org. Read More
 
 
Uganda Aims for Middle Income Status
World Bank Africa Vice President Obiageli Ezekwesili ended her recent visit to Uganda with one clear message: Growth must double and corruption must be curbed if Uganda is to become a middle-income country in the next 15 years. The vice president expressed optimism that these goals could be achieved if Uganda efficiently manages its soon-to be-exploited oil resources and works toward attaining value for money in the public sector.

Middle East and North Africa Recovering from the Crisis
The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is recovering from the financial crisis with growth in 2010 expected to be 4.4%. The recovery from the crisis differs by country depending on initial conditions, intensity of impact in the financial sector, price of oil, and balance of payments. High unemployment has been a problem in MENA for years, and the crisis has dimmed prospects for improvements in the near term. Among key long-term growth obstacles are access to finance, competitiveness issues, and regulatory uncertainty. Read More

2010 Afghanistan Economic Update
In spite of the security, social, and political difficulties, Afghanistan has enjoyed mostly favorable macroeconomic conditions, with a historically high GDP growth of 22.5%, and declining prices in 2009-10. A strong rebound in agriculture, helped mainly by ample and well-distributed rainfall is behind the surge in growth. Mining is booming as well with near 30% growth in the last two years. Afghanistan also achieved a remarkable surge in domestic revenues during 2009, collecting 53% more than the previous year. Robust growth and low inflation has reduced poverty in Afghanistan. GDP growth is expected to continue to grow at 8.6% in 2010-11, inflation is low, at about 2%. Read More

In Vietnam, Ethnic Minority Women Find New Forms of Employment
Morning dew still covers the Upper Mon Nam village in northern Vietnam but Vong A Phu – a Tay ethnic minority woman and 25 other female villagers have already walked more than 10 kilometers on foot with shovels and hoes. They're doing rural road maintenance – a new job for those who previously only knew how to cultivate. The road maintenance started in Lao Cai in February 2010 under a pilot project to train and employ local rural, ethnic minority women in rural road maintenance. The project has saved costs, increased women's rights and improved the livelihood of their families. Read More
 
Macedonian Railways: Reforms Lay the Ground for Development
Former Yugoslav Republic (FYR) of Macedonia's strategic location puts it on one of the most important European international routes – Corridor X – which links Europe with Greece, Turkey, and Central Asia. Efficient and effective operation of the roads and railways which link FYR Macedonia to the rest of the region has become increasingly important to realizing the country's growth potential. In June 2006, the government and the World Bank signed the Railway Reform Project aimed at improving the productivity and effectiveness of railway operations. Since then, a number of new laws have been adopted as part of a complex reform process aimed at creating a sustainable railway system in the country. Read More
 
Connecting Rural Communities in Albania
A survey of poverty in Albania noted that many Albanians considered infrastructure problems to be a significant factor in their low standard of living. Forty-nine percent of rural producers stated that a lack of adequate transportation, primarily all weather roads, was their biggest marketing problem. Poor road access contributes to migration from rural to urban areas, and negatively affects the delivery of health and education services. Today, under the Secondary and Local Roads Project, 26 communities have received access to all weather roads for the first time. The construction of additional roads is on schedule, which will provide an all weather connection to over 50 communities by the end of the project. Read More

Forget the Mainstream Media - Go Web, Go Local
International development organizations are very adept at disseminating knowledge through books, reports, power points, and research documents, but what is being done about reaching the people who need to be convinced to take action with this knowledge? The predominant paradigm seems to be - publish in the major global media in developed countries and there will be a trickledown effect. This no longer works. A global poll conducted in 2008 confirms that the internet is the primary gateway to Bank information, and it is also the best way to reach at a more grassroots level.
