Do not be easily convinced to make use of any anti wrinkle cream that claims it can get rid of your creases in as fast as a few minutes. This is definitely not realistic. The best anti wrinkle cream may not bring about fast results, but instead one that you can enjoy for a long period of time. When selecting an anti wrinkle product, do not rely solely on how the product is advertised. Try to look into the details of the item in terms of ingredients and safety. It has to be made of components that are not detrimental to your health. The ingredients have to be proven effective in making the skin more elastic, smoother and more vibrant.
Consulting with a skin doctor can help you determine which anti wrinkle creams are worth giving a try. Skin doctors know which products are not harsh to the skin and those that you can consume regularly. They are well-aware which ingredients truly help do away the crow’s feet appearance on one’s skin and which ones do not …
The murder/suicide of actor Phil Hartman and his wife stunned the nation a year ago, and now the aftershocks are being felt. The late actor’s brother-in-law, Gregory Omdahl, is suing Pfizer and a psychiatrist, claiming that his sister was under the influence of the antidepressant drug Zoloft when she killed her husband and herself.
Hartman, 49, star of the NBC sitcom NewsRadio, was shot by Brynn Omdahl Hartman, 40, who killed herself four hours later in the early morning hours of May 28, 1998.
Gregory Omdahl, brother of Mrs. Hartman and executor of the Hartman estate and conservator for their two children, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on May 27, charging that Pfizer, which makes Zoloft, “had done all that it can to downplay the possibility that Zoloft causes violence or suicide in some people.”
Omdahl acknowledged that an autopsy found alcohol and cocaine in his sister’s body but said she snorted the cocaine after killing her husband.
Omdahl also sued Arthur Sorosky, M.D., the Los Angeles psychiatrist who gave Brynn Hartman samples of…

While three-quarters of House Republicans routinely vote the NRA way, the 50 or so NRA loyalists inside the House Democratic Caucus play an essential role in rendering substantive gun-control legislation dead on arrival. Congress might demand new safety locks and clamp down on sales at gun shows in the wake of the Littleton, Colorado, school shootings. But, thanks to these Democrats, the Democratic leadership can’t–and won’t–seriously push for more draconian measures, such as mandatory registration or new limits on gun purchases, when the House debates the topic next week. The reason: The gun issue could backfire on the party as it did in 1994, when, as Clinton admits, Democrats “lost control of the House of Representatives in all probability because of” his crusade to ban assault weapons.
The numbers speak for themselves. Forty House Democrats were awarded an “A” on the NRA’s issue scorecard in 1998, and 15 more are considered by the gun lobby to be reliable friends, according to the NRA’s head lobbyist, James Jay Baker. Many of these Democrats are as “extreme” on…
In Whiting, Indiana, 1,650 people depend on the Amoco oil refinery for their livelihood. The future is tenuous for those hanging on to well-paying jobs in this industrial region. Another local refinery has already closed its doors, and the once-mighty steel industry is down from 20,000 workers to fewer than 8,000.
“Twenty years ago if you lost your job, you could just walk down the street and find another one,” says Bob Lofton, a board member of Local 7-1 of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers, who works at the refinery. “Today it’s tough.”
While Lofton and his co-workers see Amoco as their lifeline, many local environmentalists view the refinery with suspicion. Fires and explosions are not uncommon. The groundwater has been contaminated from oil leaks. And Amoco routinely discharges high levels of chlorides that end up in Lake Michigan, as well as toxic metals such as selenium, arsenic and lead. “This can’t be good for the water or for the animals and people,” says Doreen Carey, executive director of the Grand Calumet Task Force, a grassroots …
Eli Lilly & Co. is back on top – but not alone – as the brand-name pharmaceutical manufacturer that pharmacists perceive as most committed to pharmacy, according to this site’s exclusive annual Corporate Honor Roll survey. Lilly topped the poll in 1997, fell to second last year, and now, in 1999, is back to reclaim its throne.
This year, however, Lilly does not rule alone; Schering-Plough tied for first place this year as most committed to pharmacy, a dramatic rise from its sixth place finish in 1998, and its No. 4 ranking in 1997.
Lilly and Schering both received 20.6 percent of pharmacists’ votes. Pfizer was a close third, with 17.6 percent, catapulting the company from its seventh place finish in 1998. Last year’s No. 1 – Glaxo Wellcome – tumbled to fifth place with 11.8 percent of votes (Table 1).
Among generic drug manufacturers, Mylan continued its reign of dominance, taking home top honors for the fifth consecutive year despite also being selected as the generic company whose relations with pharmacy had worsened most in…

In the decades of occupation, the futility of the occupation became more and more evident to more and more Israelis. They wanted a normal life, not an imperial life. In 1978, Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat invited Yasir Arafat to join them in their peace. Arafat refused. In 1993, he shook Yitzhak Rabin’s hand and agreed to live with Israel, in return for which the way to a Palestinian state was made ready. The PLO became the Palestine Authority, and Israel’s withdrawal from the West Bank and Gaza was begun. In 2000, Ehud Barak agreed that the time for “final status” had finally arrived, that there was no point in deferring the two-state solution to the conflict any longer. He agreed to the creation of Palestine, and in return he wanted a clear Palestinian declaration that the conflict was over. Arafat refused.
The particulars of the deal that fell apart on July 25 are still shrouded in secrecy; but here are the central points of the deal that the United States proposed before Clinton left for a …
The economy of southern Ohio has been devastated for years. Coal mining jobs that once paid $40,000 a year have been replaced by minimum wage service jobs–or nothing at all. Oil and gas hit bottom. And while loggers still work the forests, the timber is shipped directly to Japan and Germany, with no secondary wood processing jobs in the region. While the rest of the state has a 4 percent unemployment rate, the 1 1 counties in the Appalachian part of Ohio average as high as 17 percent.
“If you don’t have a job at Ohio University, you’re poor,” says June Holley, president of the Appalachian Center for Economic Networks (ACEnet).
But when ACEnet sought ways to invigorate the economy, the group realized that the area had one unrecognized asset: hundreds of tiny manufacturing firms. “We did a lot of research and were inspired by northern Italy, where hundreds of thousands of very small manufacturing firms were created in 15 years,” explains Holley. The secret was targeting markets, then working in collaborative ways to meet the needs …
The opening up of Gulf economies promises a range of new financing opportunities, and even some potentially hectic merger activity as Gulf Co-operation Council banks prime themselves to survive in a more competitive environment.
An opening to private investment in key sectors of the Saudi Arabian economy is exciting considerable interest across the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) region. Speculation that investment in the Saudi gas sector could require some $25bn in the next few years alone is just the sort of talk Gulf bankers and their international rivals and associates like to hear.
Opening up the world’s biggest oil exporter could have considerable impact on Bahrain, whose financial services sector, just across the causeway from Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, houses nearly 200 financial institutions with a $100bn-plus consolidated balance sheet — a significant part of which is sourced from Saudi Arabia.
But the impact of any real Saudi opening will be felt across the wider Gulf region, where project financing, new Islamic products and other instruments are fast becoming commonplace in one of the world’s most conservative …
Who would not want to use the best help desk software if it can save time? Every manufacturer is aware of the importance of time and how much of it needs to be saved if they want to become the most productive in the Industry. If they can use software that will relieve the much needed manpower towards another department, then that is what they will prefer. It is all about maximizing productivity. We know for a fact that labour is cost intensive. One cannot take shortcuts where employees are concerned. If a department needs a certain number of staff in order to handle all the business needs, the company is going to hire that number.
However, if we can use help desk software thereby freeing up some of the staff, we may be able to put the said staff to better use in another department. Companies are always on the lookout for a solution that will enable them to utilize manpower to its maximum potential. Most companies in a variety of domains have started using help …
