US Investigators Praise Cannabinoids As Chemo Treatment - NORML

US Investigators Praise Cannabinoids As Chemo Treatment - NORML

Investigators at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health reported that the administration of cannabinoids halts the spread of a wide range of cancers, including brain cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, pancreatic cancer, and lymphoma. Researchers suggested that cannabinoids may offer significant advantages over standard chemotherapy treatments because the compounds are both non-toxic and can uniquely target malignant cells while ignoring healthy ones.

"Cannabinoids … offer potential applications as anti-tumor drugs, based on the ability of some members of this class to limit inflammation, cell proliferation, and cell survival," authors concluded. "[T]here is overwhelming evidence to suggest that cannabinoids can be explored as chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of cancer."

The Associated Press: CDC Pins Name on Slaughterhouse Illness

Slaughterhouse Illness

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a report Thursday summarizing the investigation so far that gives the condition a name — progressive inflammatory neuropathy.

Minnesota officials said they were broadening their investigation to thousands of former employees at the Quality Pork Processors Inc. plant in Austin, going back a decade to when a powerful compressed air system was installed to remove brain tissue from pig heads.

Investigators have been trying to determine whether pig brain tissue, sprayed into the air as droplets during removal by the compressed air system, was inhaled by workers and made them sick.

If further investigation proves their theories true, they will have identified a rare, new condition that could shed light on a whole family of poorly understood disorders in which the body's immune system attacks the nerves or the sheath that surrounds them, the Star Tribune reported.

A Big Win For Yahoo! Shareholders, Microsoft (MSFT) Makes A Bid

It is the best news that Yahoo! (YHOO) investors have had in years. Microsoft (MSFT) has offered to buy the company for $31 representing a total equity value of approximately $44.6 billion. Yahoo! trades for $19.18.

The proposal would allow the Yahoo! shareholders to elect to receive cash or a fixed number of shares of Microsoft common stock, with the total consideration payable to Yahoo! shareholders consisting of one-half cash and one-half Microsoft common stock. The offer represents a 62 percent premium above the closing price of Yahoo! common stock on Jan. 31, 2008.

With Yahoo!'s latest earnings showing revenue moving up less than 10% and operating income actually falling its shareholders are getting more than they could ever have bargained for. A slowing ad market is likely to take its shares down further.

The bid is a sign that a turnaround for Yahoo!'s new management is a long way off. If Wall St. believed in their current plan, Microsoft would have a hard time making the offer.

A buy-out of Yahoo! would be a coup for Microsoft and its MSN operation. According to comScore, Yahoo! still has more unique users than Google. MSN and Yahoo! together would have about 35% of the search market. Google has over 50%, but separately the other two companies had no chance to catch it They may now.

MSFT will probably fire another 3,000 to 4,000 people at Yahoo!. That would make the deal very profitable for Redmond. If it sells Yahoo! Japan and the portal's piece of China e-commerce company Alibaba it can cut the purchase price by about $10 a share.



-yahoo could be a short, more to come later before the open. -st0ckman
