    U.S. gene patents: Patient care stymied in Canada, hospital claims - Health - CBC News

    It's mind-boggling that the Patent system, originally intended to encourage inventions, has been twisted into a tool for making money through litigation, all the while hindering the advancement of technology. Worse, in this case, it is putting countless lives at risk for the sake of profit.

    Frau Kirchner Argentine president admitted to hospital with fever
    Cristina Kirchner admitted to hospital for tests after feeling unwell

    [​IMG]
    Argentina's President Cristina Kirchner was admitted to hospital late Sunday suffering from fever, her office said.
    The 61-year-old president began feeling unwell in the afternoon. She was admitted for tests and monitoring at the Otamendi Clinic in Buenos Aires, the statement signed by doctors Marcelo Ballesteros and Ricardo Solla said.

    She had resumed her normal work schedule October 21 after resting for 48 hours on doctors orders due to pharyngitis.
    In July, Ms Kirchner also had to rest for two days due to a sore throat and laryngitis. Her recovery time then had to be extended to a week and she cancelled her work schedule and a trip to Paraguay.

    A little over a year ago, the president underwent surgery for an intracranial hematoma. She was then off work for six weeks, and doctors were upbeat about the results.

    Please let it be something more serious..................

    Patent is basically a tax to the government to speak on your behalf on the new ideas you appropriated as your own. If you are not rich enough to pay the tax, that is tough. That's how I choose to see it.

    I heard it explained that if someone happened to be found genetically immune to cancer and it turned out to be the cure for cancer, it's the property of the people who discovered it not the person where the genetics comes from. So if you were immune to cancer and wanted to give it as a gift to the world, you can't unless you discovered it in your own body yourself.

    The average human can now BOLT like Usain - thanks to a pair of bionic boots which give people the ability to run at 25mph. Bionic Boots, a concept developed by Keahi Seymour from Solihull, West Mids, will help humans run as fast as the 6x Olympic gold medal winner. Keahi, who now lives in San Francisco, California, was mesmerized by the wide gait and speed of kangaroos and ostriches as a child. And his boots, which are still in the prototype stage, are aimed at emulating the stride of an ostrich. Highly tensile springs imitate the Achilles of these animals providing a swift form of transport - close to Usain Bolts average speed of 27.4mph.
