Betting that money is more persuasive than words, more employers vow to use financial rewards and penalties to prod their workers to fitness in 2012. Employers have seen serious problems related to obesity, she said, including higher rates of depression, absenteeism, low productivity and more medical claims. An overweight employee costs employers $5,000 more a year in health costs than a healthy-weight individual. The survey of 335 employers found that the share of companies that used financial rewards in health management programs increased to 54% in 2011 from 36% in 2009. In 2012, about 80% of companies plan to offer financial rewards.

As I stare at an ink blot
Thinking why I think the thoughts I think
Paying 20 gs a year straight to my shrink
To analyze me on a couch
And while hes zoning out
Im tuning in to my inner child
So that explains why I get wild
On the weekend drinking no tomorrow
Sleep around to ease my sorrow
And it all relates to what happened in second grade
I am told there is a name for what is wrong inside my brain
And that fact alone makes me feel like Im hardly that insane
Ive undergone psychoanalysis
My dreams all full of phalluses
Psychotropics I imbibe
So happy to be prescribed
What I get from Pfizers not much different from Budweiser
In the end, you and I just fated to pretend

Weekly healthcare news

Three leading senators are inquiring into drugmaker Pfizer Inc’s efforts to limit the sale of generic versions of its Lipitor cholesterol drug, which lost U.S. patent protection this week. Their concern was prompted by a newspaper report earlier this month that Pfizer had struck deals with leading insurers and pharmacy benefits managers, who negotiate prices on behalf of companies and insurers, to offer discounts on Lipitor if they block prescriptions for its generic versions

What’s The Splash With Aquaponics?

by Julie Buisson 

Aquaponics is a term that most of us are familiar with. It refers to the closed-loop hydroponics method that uses fish waste as a natural fertilizer for plants. While aquaponics is a method that has been around for centuries and has been lauded for its sustainability, it is still very rarely seen in vertical farming practices. Why? After all, there are successful examples of the technology being used. Verticulture in Brooklyn, NY has a beautiful aquaponics operation in an old Pfizer warehouse where they grow barges of fresh basil alongside their tilapia. Edenworks also has a small greenhouse in Brooklyn that grows a variety of produce using aquaponics. Bustan aquaponics in Egypt is also a shinning example of the symbiotic system at work. Aquaponics as a closed-loop system can be extremely efficient but various challenges with the technique have prevented it from being more widely adopted. 

In order to find out more about this issue, I went to visit the Cylburn Arboretum in Baltimore, MD. It was a Wednesday during open house hours when I walked into “The Foods System Lab” a small urban farm run by Johns Hopkins Center for a Living Future as a teaching and research farm. I was the only visitor and was able to spend time with Laura Genello, the farm manager, who patiently answered all my questions. Laura has a B.S. in Environment Science from Brown University and developed an interest in farming when she spent a couple of seasons as an apprentice in Rhode Island learning about small-scale, soil-based vertical farming. Having worked at the Food Systems Lab for the past 3.5 years, she now is an expert at growing in water as well.  

Laura and I walk around the greenhouse where she shows me the different set-ups they have to test various media and growing systems. They have a flood and drain system where they grow root vegetables in gravel. They also have a large water culture system where leafy greens can be seen emerging from containers nestled in styrofoam panels. Finally a couple of PVC pipes lining the side demonstrate the nutrient film technique. We spend most of our time, however, around a large plastic barrel containing some fifteen tilapia fish. Tilapia is the go-to fish for aquaponics operation because they are easy to care for and can be consumed. Standing there, watching the produce flourishing and the fish splashing along, it seems easy, I ask her we aren’t seeing more of this in the vertical farming industry.


“I think economics are at the heart of the slow take-off of aquaponics. These systems are infrastructure and cost intensive to start-up, and depending on costs of various inputs, cannot easily outcompete hydroponic, or soil-based growers. Moreover, aquaponics is really knowledge intensive, requiring an understanding of both the fish and the plants. There’s a steep learning curve, and too many entrepreneurs discount that learning curve when considering how quickly they can expect to recoup their investment. Energy costs are a big issue. How can renewable energy be integrated into aquaponics systems?”

The Corporate Tax Dodge Continues
American companies that use porous tax laws to change their nationalities have nothing to lose but their tax obligations — and most lawmakers are fine with that.
By The Editorial Board

“ … Johnson Controls is, however, the latest and quite possibly the most brazen tax dodger. The company would not exist as it is today but for American taxpayers, who paid $80 billion in 2008 to bail out the auto industry. Johnson Controls’s president personally begged Congress for the bailout, which came on top of huge tax breaks that the company has received over the years, including at least $149 million from Michigan alone from 1992 to 2009, according to The Times. … “

“ … What’s galling about this and similar maneuvers is that Congress has done nothing to stop them. Since 2008, some three dozen American companies have used gaps and loopholes in the law to change their tax nationalities, a process known as “inverting.” … “

1. GERD Meds

Few had heard of the condition gastroesophageal reflux disease before DTC advertising. While a small percentage of the population may have GERD, the condition is widely believed to have been pushed to sell proton pump inhibitors (PPI) like Nexium. In many cases “GERD” is really heartburn and can be treated with Tums or Rolaids, say critics.

2. Lipitor

If DTC advertising was the medium that made Big Pharma a Wall Street darling, statins like Lipitor were the drug class. In 2005 statins earned $18.7 billion in the United States and Pfizer’s Lipitor became the best-selling drug in the world.

3. Crestor

Statins were given a big boost by Paul Ridker of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, who presented the results of a study on the statin Crestor, funded by its manufacturer AstraZeneca, in 2009. Even though Ridker was co-inventor of a related patent and stood to profit from sales, and study authors listed 131 financial ties to Big Pharma, the media were wowed. Headlines screamed “AstraZeneca’s Crestor cuts death, heart attack,” and “Crestor study seen changing preventive treatment!” Ka-ching.

4. Vytorin

Vytorin was heavily advertised as treating both genetic and dietary sources of cholesterol and combined the statin drug Zocor with the anti-hyperlipidemic drug Zetia. The problem was, it was marketed before a study confirmed its effectiveness and when the study was published it found Vytorin had no effect on the buildup of plaque in the arteries. Oops.

small update

hello! i want to start off by saying that donations are now closed. none were received, but everything worked out in the end because my dad found out that pfizer, the company that manufactures lyrica, has a financial assistance program and we qualify for it now! 

if any of my followers, friends, or just anyone in general who needs such a thing is having trouble paying for lyrica in the united states, this is the website you can go to for help. i don’t think you can get the assistance if you are on medicare or medicaid, sadly, but anyone with other forms of insurance and or without it can apply and (hopefully) get a discount.

on the personal side of things, some very serious issues have come up in my personal life that have forced me to announce a longer hiatus than i had originally planned for. i hope that everyone has fun simming while i’m gone, and i’ll try to get back into the sims when things are not so weird. <3

What the Pfizer?

What are the Major Affronts to Modern Psychology? Read on.

Psychology is a popular topic—and college major—for a lot of people who really haven’t got a clue what to make of humanity. People may sometimes be bothersome, but they’re interesting! Whether you’re wondering why you keep dating jerks, why your boss with an engineering degree still doesn’t seem to have any common sense, or what possessed your neighbors to willingly adopt a blind, two-legged Pomeranian whose larynx is (conveniently) the only thing that works, it’s natural to stop and ask yourself, “Why do people do what they do?” Unfortunately, this can also be pretty futile, and the modern pop psychology infiltrating our talk shows, social media, and conversations does little to shed light on the subject. If anything, the extra task of sorting through all the unverifiable, cockamamie theories further convolutes the whole process.

So what can we do to avoid simply buying every personality test peddled to us or wondering if we qualify for that medication we’ve seen eighteen commercials for in the last hour? For one thing, we can sort through the muck. Behold some of the affronts to real progress in modern psychology:

Affront #1: The dangerous relationship between psychiatrists, the Diagnostic Statistical Manual and Pharmaceutical Companies.

Quite frankly, the proof is in the Prozac. While Big Pharma can deny that the latest edition of the DSM seemed to bode well for over-diagnosis in psychiatric offices and therefore an uptick in pharmaceutical company profits, anyone can see evidence of the harm caused by their over-reaching, direct to consumer advertising, and constant price inflations. Just this month, Pfizer raised the prices of many of their most popular drugs. In some cases, existing customers can expect price increases up to 20 percent. If you’re wondering, Pfizer has long been under scrutiny for anyone who is truly concerned about health. The World Health Organization actually confronted them in 2003 for launching misleading ads regarding Neurotonin. Of course, Pfizer not only continued to run the ads, but after paying off the government ($430 million), continued to make nearly $3 billion in profit through off-label marketing of that very drug (Murray, 2009).

As for the problems with the drugs themselves, I’ve written about this at length in a previous two-part article entitled: “The Business of Medicating What Ails You.” For one thing, advertising prescription drugs is a practice we’ve upheld since 1997 in the United States, with very little FDA regulation, with drug companies spending nearly $60 billion annually in marketing to physicians alone (Murray, 2009). A study from the same year by Canadian researchers Gagnon and Lexchin revealed that drug companies spent more on marketing than research and development of their products. How much more? Try at least double the amount. Meanwhile, a 2009 report from Journal of American Medical Association found false and misleading statistics in many medical studies evaluating antidepressants, and an increasing number of people report learning of their medication from advertising rather than from their doctor (Landers, 2001).

We have essentially come to a place in history where marketing has trumped scientific knowledge in this area, perhaps because it is still such a low priority. Many insurance companies still categorize substance abuse as a physical problem, making it difficult to coordinate mental health and substance abuse treatment (referred to as dual diagnosis). Furthermore, while it is technically legal for pharmaceutical companies to assist in funding for medical grants and education, this seems a blatant conflict of interests, increasing the possibility of a dangerous bias in research, not to mention unreliable diagnostic tools. In 2010, a Vermont study cited by Chimonas, et al, uncovered pharmaceutical companies giving large financial gifts to psychiatry specialists at rates of nearly 70 percent of total funding. How is this legal? It’s covered under disclosure laws. They’re a little bit like campaign funding with the wiggle room for special interests, lobbying and corruption, but the catch here is that they at least “disclose” the amount. As it turns out, the love of money is perhaps the root of some disorders.

If you close your eyes, open the DSM-V, and put your finger somewhere on the page, you have a pretty good chance of finding a few familiar sounding “symptoms.” Because being human has practically become a diagnosis, the newest Diagnostic Statistical Manual included disorders such as Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (temper tantrums), Binge Eating Disorder (eating too much 12 times minimum in 3 months), and Major Depressive Disorder (now including bereavement following the loss of a loved one, formerly known as…grieving). By some of the loose definitions included, a label can be reached in no time, with a drug to match.

Affront #2: Pseudo-science, Pseudo-psychology and the Quacks that Preach It.

Despite our mockery of television doctors and unqualified authors in the “Self-Help” section, we take in more of their advice than we’d like to admit. For instance, have you ever heard someone use the term “co-dependent?” That’s outdated.

[Fun fact: If you graduate with a Chemical Dependency/Addiction Studies minor, you’ll find that most educated and qualified Chemical Dependency Professionals not only scoff at the assertion that someone is “co-dependent” or has an “addictive personality,” but consider the idea to be harmful in theory and application.]

Nobody is codependent because (nearly) everybody is codependent. Wendy Kaminer, author of “Chances Are You’re Codependent Too,” put the number around 96 percent of the population. If she’s right, we don’t need “Codependents Anonymous,” we need “Codependents Unanimous!” It’s not a special trait because the warning signs of codependence and the factors that are used to define and differentiate the “condition” of being codependent can apply to anyone. It’s the same for that old phrase, “I have an addictive personality.” No, you don’t. Everyone does. Everyone has mechanisms in their brain that respond positively to pleasurable experiences and strive to avoid negative experiences. If chocolate or alcohol or cocaine increases pleasure and nothing else measures up neurologically/chemically speaking, then your chances of becoming “addicted” are equal to the next guy. You know, the one who “doesn’t” have an addictive personality.

But it’s not the terms, or even the usage, that’s important. It’s the fact that we blatantly accept a checklist of general traits or symptoms and apply them without realizing that we’re essentially reading a psychological horoscope. Often, these terms are thrown around and used by well-meaning family members and friends as an attempt to get their loved one to honestly assess their problems when those problems are fairly universal, and any serious issues ought to be addressed by a professional when that individual decides to seek help. On that note, ill-conceived practices like familial interventions can be just as harmful as exorcisms. They’re confrontational, personalized, and they feel an awful lot like an attack (because they kind of are). NIDA, the National Intervention for Drugs and Alcohol, obviously supports interventions, yet even they warn against planning one without professional help and guidance.

Another area in which people slip up is their inherent misunderstanding of personality test results. First of all, many of the tests you find online—in spite of their length and supposed depth—are unreliable or invalid. Test reliability refers to the degree of consistent, repeated results. If the results differ significantly depending on what mood you’re in when you take the test, if you had your morning coffee, or if your hormones are out of whack that week, then the test is not reliable. Validity refers to the construct, criteria and content of the test. In a rather silly example, the test claims to measure your personality but actually puts forth questions that determine your ability to recall information from elementary school, it is unreliable. In other words, a truly scientific psychological test ought to test the domain it claims to test, and the results should remain reasonably similar upon any repeated efforts. Even extremely popular tests like the Myer-Briggs, commonly used for some occupational fit assessments, have come under scrutiny for being invalid (perhaps measuring transient rather than stable traits) and unreliable (someone may get INTJ one day and INFP the next, depending on their mood and resulting outlook).

Tests like these aren’t harmful, but they should be used as a tool for further inquiry, or even just for a lively discussion, rather than the basis for whether or not you should apply for that job as a foreman or date a fellow ENTP.

Affront #3: Examples of psychological disorders in movies and television.

Sometimes, Hollywood gets it right. However, inaccurate portrayals based on loose understandings and definitions of many disorders are commonplace in the movies, often due to the necessity of contrived storylines and linear character development.

Take the story of real mathematical genius John Nash in A Beautiful Mind. The movie certainly portrayed his delusions and paranoia with a high degree of detail and sensitivity, despite dressing up his disorder by neglecting to clarify the nature of his hallucinations (auditory and voices rather than visual hallucinations) and skimming over the vast scope of his symptoms (infantile behavior, bizarre manner of dress, and disorganized speech). Schizophrenic is a complex disorder with subtypes that include: Paranoid, Disorganized, Catatonic, Undifferentiated and Residual. We tend to picture the first subtype, almost as a rule, because it’s the most commonly seen in entertainment mediums. However, Catatonic states are also common, characterized by (you guessed it) motionless, catatonic behavior and blank stares. Disorganized schizophrenia, another common subtype, can be recognized by extremely bizarre speech and behavior, coupled with inappropriate or flat emotions. In movies, schizophrenia is often the “one size fits all” explanation for true insanity, and those who have the disorder are portrayed as violent and unstable.

Additionally, many films show mental illness as a sudden reaction to a traumatic event. For example, most of the “demented” villains have tragic pasts to which we can pinpoint one major event and say, “Ah ha! That’s what did it!” In reality, a parent’s murder or being witness to horrific events might be a catalyst for traumatic stress disorder, but only in films does it tend to result in a sudden psychosis in the category of mood or personality disorders.

As usual, there’s no easy, streamlined solution to the myths surrounding psychological study, but is a way to build up a defense against the harebrained ideas dragging a noble aspiration through the mud: Education.

The great thing about all the knowledge out there is that it’s readily available; the terrible thing about all the knowledge out there is that it’s readily available. It’s the sorting process that takes some time.

For the chronically depressed, pharmaceutical drugs can provide a chance to live without feeling like they’re hopping on one foot uphill with an REI backpack, but the reality of the medical industrial complex must be taken seriously. For the casual online test takers and avid self-help readers, there is wisdom to be gleamed from personality tests and the New Age section, but it should be weighed against the evidence. For enthusiastic moviegoers, major Hollywood films like Silver Linings Playbook or A Beautiful Mind can provide a starting place to talk about mental health, but not all films can even boast that.

And if reading all that digression didn’t make you just a little nutty, perhaps you’re halfway there already.

honestly i don’t hate martin shkreli as much as everyone else i think like yeah he’s annoying and yeah what he did was super shitty but like literally every drug company does that they just don’t have a public face that we can kick around like companies like pfizer and the like raise prices on drugs weekly but we only pay attention to the fact that shkreli’s company raised the prices of two drugs

Here's a super quick guide to what traders are talking about right now

Traders gather at the post that trades Pfizer’s stock on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange

Via Dave Lutz at JonesTrading, here’s a super quick guide to what traders are talking about on Tuesday morning:

Good Morning, and Happy Groundhog Day!  Equity markets are starting today in a foul mood as Oil collapses another 4% overnight and nears the $30 level again.   S&P Futures are off about 70bp right now, but well off the overnight lows we saw when Europe opened.   In Germany, the DAX is off 1% in average volume, and Euro Stoxx down 1.3% as UBS is off 8% on #s.  They still HATE the fins.  BP #s have all the Oil Majors getting hit and S&P warning on Miners weigh in London, where the FTSE is down 1.7%.  Over in Asia, China rebounds 2% in very light volume, but it was a sea of red otherwise - Nikkei slipped 60bp as BOJ tailwinds diminished India and Aussie lost around 1% as their Central Banks stayed unch (Very dovish tone tho) – and all of EM Asia was buried in the red. 

No real flight to havens, as Gold is down 22bp – but demand remains for Global Sovs as 10-year JGB yields bounce away from zero.  The US 10YY remains under 1.95%, so I’d anticipate a continued flight to Yield Stocks – REITs and UTEs had a great day yesterday, and Utilities are one of the few sectors in Europe that remain well bid this AM.   The DXY continues to retreat form 12Y highs, and is testing fresh week lows – a tailwind for commodities.   Zinc and Copper are rebounding 1%, but that Energy complex remains under pressure ahead of US Inventories as headlines say Russian Jan. Oil Output Rises To New Post-Soviet Record.   Natty Gas remains off 2% as Warm Weather prevails for much of America, and all those Softs are mixed.   

Ahead of us today - ACT prelim truck orders and Domestic Car Sales for January Released throughout the session, we also get ISM New York at 9:45, and Fed’s George Speaks on U.S. Economy in Kansas City at 1.   After the bell we get API data for Crude at 4:30, guesstimates for U.S. crude supplies to rise 3.75M.  Down in Washington, at 10am the House votes to reimpose Iran sanctions lifted by nuclear deal and attempt to override President Obama’s veto of H.R.3762, which blocks federal funds for Planned Parenthood and guts key provisions of the 2010 health-care law.
