Futures trading is all about making easy money the hard way, if you don’t follow a disciplined set of strategies. After all, strategy is the key to success in futures trading. What makes one futures trader successful among so many?Could it be intelligence? If that were so, all persons with high IQs would have excelled in futures trading. Is it a software programme? If that were the case, programmers would be ruling the roost. Does commodities trading experience translate into successful futures trading? Not exactly, otherwise all senior people would be leading futures traders. Some may even go to the extent of claiming that inside tips can help you to succeed. Don’t kid yourself.
There has been an alarming upward trend in the costs of similar treatments, as more drugs are developed and come on to the market, new Pharmac figures show. And as the price of life-saving medicines soar and pharmaceutical companies show no signs of justifying their costs, the Government is warning that something has got to give. Pharmac, the Government's drug buying agency, began funding a key blood cancer drug Thalidomide, manufactured by drug giant Celgene, in 2002. While the true costs of what Pharmac pays are confidential, the list price for the drug in 2002 was $360, based on a daily average dose for a month. Compare that with a later iteration of the same drug - Lenalidomide - which in 2014 carried a list price of $8353. A third option for blood cancer patients, whose condition might not respond so well to the first two, was Bortezomib, which had a list price of $9742. The benefits of treating cancer with any of the drugs were similar, and limited studies comparing Lenalidomide and Thalidomide showed no survival difference. When it came to differing forms of chemotherapy for breast cancer, list prices had risen 443 per cent. Anthracycline, a common chemotherapy, was listed at $975 in 2002. As two more options came onto the market - Docetaxel, also in 2002, and Trastuzumab, in 2007 - list prices rose to $2488 and $5300 respectively. A similar trend was also shown across medicines for the treatment of kidney cancer, and lung cancer, rising 411 and 44 per cent respectively. While all those costs related to the list-price of the medicines, chief executive Steffan Crauzas said Pharmac did not pay that much. How much less Pharmac paid was confidential, but the increase in the list-price showed an alarming trend that the overall cost of providing New Zealanders access to medicines was becoming more difficult. Costs were symptomatic of a price-war raging overseas, where the medicines market was not so tightly controlled by a public purchaser. According to the World Health Organisation, medicines accounted for over half of total health expenditures and were often "unavailable and unaffordable to consumers who need them". It recommended making some essential medicines exempt from taxation. Breast Cancer Aotearoa Coalition chair Libby Burgess, who led a campaign for the public funding of breast cancer drug Herceptin, said the problem was the Pharmac model. She cited Australia, where two separate bodies took care of funding decisions and then purchase of the medicines respectively. "All of that happens under one roof in Pharmac, which means its very easy for one part of the process to compromise another." MidCentral DHB Oncologist Dr Richard Isaacs said the prices big pharma was charging was "gobsmacking". "There's been a lot of criticism of Pharmac over the years, and I was involved in advocating for Herceptin, but I strongly believe now there needs to be a strong focus on the costs that pharma are charging when they introduce new targeted therapies into the market.

in weak network signal or weak wifi signals we can use the earphone as antenna to make the signals stronger it will be useful for far places that is farway from network towers ,faraway from wifi sources or safari journey and for mountain climbers
New designs/future designs will not require wires between base and monitor. If you break your monitor, want a touchscreen or you want to upgrade the quality you could just snap a new one in.

Very poor qualitity, our company bought two of these, motherboards failed on both just after 1 year when warranty was over. We looked at the motherboards, very cheap and poorly made motherboards. When we contacted Dell Tech support was horrible and we just got the run around from Dell. We will be looking ar other manufactures when we have to buy more notebooks.
File Tags is a software like Windows File Explorer, in which you can add Tags to files and folders. So it will become easier to search for a file with its name or the tags assigned to it.
Data security and access. A clean interface between data storage/access and application. Conforming to best-practices in software design and development, consisting of:Database.StoreDatabase.DeleteDatabase.LoadThe above could become the standard for a possible Texas Technology Commission. The $9 billion IRS bill could be reduced by securing IRS data and software contracts, setting the retail price for data storage and development, thereby securing more contracts. Why System.Persistence? Operational for over 13 years with no updates and no bugs. Supports any database and any system. No configuration. Makes software easy to write and maintain. It it would be a separate company between Dell's other offerings.
Hello,it would be nice to have a detachable (2 in 1) ultrabook (for example the Latitute 13 7000 series) that has an inbuilt wireless media receiver in the keyboard dock.In my lectures (data analysis, econometrics etc.), I usually need an ultrabook with a keyboard to illustrate the software. The slides are also saved on the ultrabook. The ultrabook is connected to a projector via (mini-)displayport. To have more flexibility during the presentation, I would love to be able to take the tablet from the keyboard and have the screen from the tablet streamed to the keyboard dock which transfers it to the projector. At the moment, I don't like using a detachable because I have to re-configure the beamer to use a wireless signal (WiDi) when I remove the tablet from keyboard dock. There is another reason: Virtually whereever I present on conferences, there is always a wired connection to a projector available, but not always a wireless one.If the keyboard dock would provide the wireless receiver (similar to WiDi) on its own, I could just connect the keyboard dock to a beamer and enjoy a very high degree of flexibility.Best wishes, QContinuum
I have two Dell laptops, each using an E-series port replicator (one E-Port, one E-Port Plus) to connect to my DVI KVM switch (and other peripherals). I recently upgraded my monitor to a higher-resolution model that requires a DVI dual link connection, but cannot achieve full resolution via the E-Port DVI ports because they are only single link. Both machines have sufficiently capable graphics cards, and are able to connect to the monitor at full resolution via DisplayPort. Unfortunately, I already have a big investment in DVI, including the KVM, cabling, and video cards for my desktop workstation (also a Dell). Switching this all over to DisplayPort is going to cost $500+. Considering that both laptops have video cards that are capable of driving DVI dual link displays, it's a shame that they're hampered by the single link connectors on the port replicators. Therefore: I propose that Dell create an E-series port replicator that includes DVI dual link support. On a related topic, I'd also request that Dell publish the specifications for all models of its E-series port replicators. There are many similar versions of the E-Port and E-Port Plus out there, each with a different part number. Specs for some of the part numbers are available on the Dell accessories website, but not for either of the models that I have. It took several days of research, plus calls to both Dell technical support and the tech support for my monitor's vendor to determine conclusively that my specific port replicators only have single link connections. We all could have saved a lot of time if Dell made the specs of the existing port replicators available.Thanks for considering my idea.

I would like to see you add the ability to fully customize an Inspiron system (e.g. adding a Blu-Ray drive; more memory; change Windows edition; etc.) when a customer orders one. Your competitor, HP, allows customers to customize a system to fit their needs, while you just only add software customization options. I am planning on ordering an Inspiron all-in-one sometime after Redstone is released, and I would like one with a Blu-Ray drive. Please make your customers happy by allowing full customization of a home PC.
