The little pink tablet called the ‘Female Viagra’ approved for…

first_imgExperts say the drug will help women get their groove backThe story behind what has been branded as the ‘Female Viagra’ has been a rocky one.This was the final stage of approval by the US Food and Drug administration. It  was the third time the agency has considered approval for the drug, which is intended for women diagnosed with hypoactive sexual desire disorder, HSDD.The Little pink table is intended to help women boost their sex drive.Flibanserin, to be sold as Addyi, finally got a green light from the US Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday.The drug, while often referred to as “female Viagra”, is more akin to an antidepressant as it changes brain chemistry similar to the way that dopamine and serotonin do.Viagra relaxes muscles and increases blood flow to particular areas of the male body, helping treat erectile disfunction. While the blue pill for men should be taken before engaging in sexual activity, women are to take the pink pill daily.“Today’s approval provides women distressed by their low sexual desire with an approved treatment option,” said Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). ”It was the third time the agency has considered approving the drug for use by womenThe FDA strives to protect and advance the health of women, and we are committed to supporting the development of safe and effective treatments for female sexual dysfunction.”But the FDA cautioned that care should be taken for potential adverse reactions to the pill, including low blood pressure and loss of consciousness.“Because of a potentially serious interaction with alcohol, treatment with Addyi will only be available through certified health care professionals and certified pharmacies,” Woodcock said. “Patients and prescribers should fully understand the risks associated with the use of Addyi before considering treatment.”In June of this year, the pill took the first step to making it into US pharmacies. An FDA panel voted 18-6 in favor of approving Flibanserin on the condition that Sprout develops a plan to limit safety risks. The panel had previously rejected the pill twice before.When the FDA rejected Boehringer Ingelheim’s application for Flibanserin in June of 2010, it ruled that the drug worked no better than a placebo.“I certainly hope Boehringer doesn’t give up,” Sheryl A Kingsberg, a psychologist and Case Western Reserve University medical professor, told the New York Times at that time. “Flibanserin showed an awful lot of promise. I’m going to have some very, very disappointed patients if there’s nothing for them.”Yet by October of that year, Boehringer did just that, announcing that it was discontinuing development of Flibanserin. Months later, in 2011, the drug was acquired by Sprout.The pharmaceutical company tried its luck before the FDA in June of 2013, only to be thwarted when the agency ruled that the risks of sleepiness, dizziness, fatigue and nausea outweighed the benefits.last_img read more

Wiping records ‘dishonours’ Flo-Jo, says Joyner

first_imgLOS ANGELES, United States (AFP) — The husband of late sprint queen Florence Griffith-Joyner has vowed to fight moves by international athletics chiefs which could erase her long-standing world records from history, the Wall Street Journal reported yesterday.Al Joyner, the 1984 Olympic triple jump champion who was married to the sprinter from 1987 until her sudden death in 1998, said attempts to invalidate world records set before an as-yet-undetermined date were unfair.Joyner, 57, told the Journal he was frustrated “to see how someone with a stroke of a pen, can go change history”.“That’s dishonouring my family,” he told the paper. “I will fight tooth and nail. I will find every legal opportunity that I can find. I will fight it like I am training for an Olympic gold medal.”Under rules set to be considered by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) in August, existing world records would only be recognised if achieved at approved international events, and if the athlete concerned had been subject to an agreed number of doping control tests in the months leading up to the performance.European Athletics Council president Svein Arne Hansen said the move was aimed at removing “the cloud of doubt and innuendo that has hung over our records for too long”. IAAF president Sebastian Coe is also backing the proposal.Griffith-Joyner, known popularly as ‘Flo-Jo’, remains the fastest woman in history, holding the 100m best of 10.49 secs set in 1988 and the 200m mark of 21.34 secs clocked at the drug-tainted 1989 Seoul Olympics.Her brilliant career was touched by glamour, lucrative contracts, advertising deals, but – despite no proof of any wrongdoing – was always under the shadow of allegations that it was fuelled by drugs.She retired in February 1989 at the height of her earning power, just months after her record-breaking exploits in Seoul.Griffith-Joyner died in her sleep at her home in California in September 1998, at the age of 38, after suffering a severe epileptic seizure.

Aubameyang scores in fourth straight game

first_imgGabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored for the fourth straight German Bundesliga game to help his resurgent club Borussia Dortmund to their fourth straight win.Dortmund, who were rock bottom in January, climbed into the top ten after the 3:0 derby win over Ghana star Kevin-Prince Boateng’s Schalke 04.After Dortmund wasted several chances in the one-sided game, Aubameyang opened the floodgates in the 78th minute when he poked home. He celebrated the goal – his tenth of the campaign – by donning his Batman costume, joined by teammate Marco Reus in a Robin get-up.Batman and Robin indeed saved the day as Reus was to cap the win eight minutes later after Armenian Henrikh Mkitaryan had doubled the advantage in the 79th minute.Meanwhile Cote d’Ivoire striker Salomon Kalou scored the winner for Hertha Berlin as they beat visitors Ausburg 1-0. The former Chelsea star beat the goalkeeper with a cool finish in the 88th minute after being put through by a teammate. It was his first goal of the year and his sixth of the campaign.On Friday night Nigeria striker Anthony Ujah beat Bayern Munich and Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer with a header, but his club FC Cologne ended up losing the match 4-1 at Bayern.last_img read more

Behind the rebirth of Ring of Honor’s 51-year-old madman known as PCO

first_imgJoin DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearIt’s taken until you’ve reached middle age to gain this level popularity. What is it about the PCO character that is different from other versions of yourself?With age comes experience and I’m now at a point in my life where I’m wise enough to realize what I need to do to achieve success, and more importantly, to be happy. I listen to people more these days when there was a time when I would only listen to myself. I’ve been wrestling since I was 16 years old so I’ve been around this crazy world long enough to make my own mistakes and see the mistakes made by others. Back in the day, I would react a lot more different to how I’d handle things now, but to do that takes time and I think that’s a big reason why I’m enjoying wrestling today. I’ve listened so much more in the last 18 months than what I have in the 30 years before. When I made the decision to go all the way with the PCO character, I had to put everything into it. I started to eat right, live right, look after my body so I could give myself the best possible chance of realizing my dream of becoming a world champion in one of the big companies. I enrolled in gymnastics class to get as flexible as possible and now I’m doing moonsaults and backflips easier than I could ever manage. If this is going to be my last run then I had to give it everything from the start.Your first notable run in wrestling occurred in the early 90s as one half of the Quebecers with Jacques Rougeau. You achieved notable pushes and won the WWE tag title straps several times. Talk me through that run.You’re going to be surprised at this, but I didn’t like the way our characters were booked back then. Myself and Jacques were hard guys that loved to work that way and against guys like The Steiner Brothers and Mabel, it shouldn’t have been a problem to work stiff matches that fans would’ve loved. When I first heard that we were going to be a team and I looked at us together, I thought the WWE was going to perhaps book us strong like a Demolition type team or The Hart Foundation. You had Jacques who was a brilliant wrestler and I was next to him as this big strong guy, but when you look at our matches, we were portrayed the way almost every other heel was being portrayed and that made it hard to stand out. If Jeff Jarrett and Shawn Michaels are doing this routine every week trying to get noticed then that’s making our work even harder as those guys are a lot further up the card. I wanted strong feuds with other good teams, but we’d always be winning by count out or DQ and that hurt us in the long term. Even winning the tag belts against The Steiners was done under Quebec Rules so even that took away some of the magic from our victory. It was great to work alongside Jacques as he was someone from the Montreal scene, along with Ricky Martel and Pat Patterson, who I admired a lot, but our run with the belts could’ve meant a lot more if we were booked a little stronger.You were eventually booked strong during your underrated feud with Bret Hart in 1995. Although this push was short-lived, Bret was a fan of your work. Were there any other plans for any other high profile rivalries?There was a time when Vince McMahon and the management were going to go all the way with me and put the world title on me in Canada. After The Quebecers split up, me and Jacques worked some matches in Montreal that done brilliant business for the WWE with sold out stadiums. Vince was doing okay with the Canadian loop of Montreal, Quebec City, and Toronto and it was discussed that I’d win the belt from Bob Backlund in one of those cities to a big reception and then drop the belt to either Diesel or Bret back in America a few weeks later. I was essentially going to be a caretaker champion for a short period. In the end, for reasons I don’t know, Vince went off the idea and went in a different direction. The news made me sore as it was always my dream to be a world champion.Do you think the decision not to award you the title may have come from your backstage feud with The Kliq? It’s been well-documented that you weren’t very popular with the backstage faction.Probably, but although they had Vince McMahon’s ear, I still think I was okay with Vince because he gave the Jean Pierre Lafitte character a lot of support and allowed me to work with Bret Hart on a regular basis. Today in 2019 it’s very easy to blame the likes of Diesel and Shawn Michaels for whatever happened back then, but I could’ve handled the situation a lot better too. The main issue for me is that these guys were playing around with the livelihoods of so many people and they didn’t care about what financial pressures people were under. The amount of wrestlers they kept down or got fired just so they could keep the money and spotlight on themselves was something that I thought needed to be spoken up about. My biggest falling out with them came when I refused to do a job for Diesel when we were working in Montreal. I’d been told the plan was to go back there at some point for another match and I don’t believe it made sense for me to lose clean. This made them all go a little bit crazy and soon after I was gone from the WWE. Vince still held me in some regard because he came to me with other ideas, but it wasn’t a nice place to work and I got my release a little bit later.Soon after, your career stuttered as you became something of a journeyman turning up in various promotions. What are your memories of this phase of your career?Good and bad if I’m being honest. I spent some time in WCW, but it was Kevin Nash doing the booking so I didn’t like my chances there. I went onto ECW in its final days when people were not getting paid so the atmosphere there wasn’t the best, but it was great to work alongside some good names there like Justin Credible. They never missed a single payment to me so I feel grateful for the time I had there. TNA was more interested in me as a TV person for their show in Canada, but I still felt like I could offer them something. They disagreed so I wrestled for a while in Europe. I still had hopes of going back to WWE at one point and had a few dark matches around 2007 and 2008, but my phone never rang after that.It was around 2011 that you stated your intention to retire from wrestling. As we know, this was short-lived and here you are today as PCO. What was the motivation behind your comeback around 18 months ago?Even though I was retired, the love for wrestling and to fulfill my dream of being one of the very best never went away from me. The wrestling world has changed so much since I was younger and it’s not only WWE or WCW where you can have fun and make a living. Have you seen the amount of wrestling that exists today and the number of young wrestlers that are working hard around the world trying to put on good matches every night? My name value from my WWE days helped me get work, but I wanted to take my new approach and make it work with this generation of wrestlers. I was a guy who refused to lose to the WWE champion years ago and now I’m helping to put over some of the newest guys in the business. That’s how much I’ve matured and I’m enjoying every single day and treating each day like it could be my last.Your match with Walter for GCW last year was one of the most dramatic of 2018, and it certainly confirmed you as one of the best stars on the independent scene. You later signed a deal with Ring of Honor and have since debuted there. What stood out about that promotion considering you were very much in demand?Several things jumped out at me. First, they have a locker room full of the best wrestlers in the world who go out there every single night and never give less than 100% to the fans. Secondly, they made a big fuss of me and convinced me that my future there was going to be a memorable one. When you’ve spent the bulk of your whole career trying desperately to convince people that you have what it takes and they’re unsure, it becomes frustrating. Ring of Honor made it clear from our very first conversation that they wanted me, that they had big plans for me, and that they were fully behind PCO. I’ve only been here a very short time as it was December when I signed, but I’m happy so far, and please keep watching our shows because they’re only going to get better. After finding a decent level of fame in the wrestling world as one half of The Quebecers, and later as Jean-Pierre Lafitte, Pierre Carl Oullett entered a phase of somewhat obscurity. Turning up frequently in various promotions without ever hitting the heights of his WWE run, Oullett’s wrestling career was stored in the basement as he approached middle age.In 2017, armed with admirable enthusiasm, Oullett dusted himself off for one last run and the current result is PCO. An independent hero throughout 2018, PCO’s stunning body of work led to interest from various promotions and it was Ring of Honor that got his much-desired signature. Here he speaks to Chris Walker about his lengthy career and the motivation behind his unbelievable renaissance. You recently turned 51 and you’re position in wrestling has never looked stronger. At an age where most wrestlers are retired or winding down, how much longer can PCO go on?I get asked this question quite a lot. I’m not a wrestler who has abused his body and in the last couple of years, I’ve tried to look after myself as much as possible because this is all I want to do now. If we’re being realistic then I think seven years is probably the most I can go on for but I don’t want to look that far ahead. At this very moment, working with Ring of Honor, everything is perfect for me and I just want to take each day as it comes and enjoy every single moment. My goal was to always be the world champion and if that can happen here in Ring of Honor then what a story that would be for me. The response I’ve had so far since coming to this great company has been really special and I hope that I can give them the best version of PCO for a long time.See PCO compete on Sunday, February 10 (7pm ET) at ROH Bound By Honor: Miami, streaming LIVE for HonorClub members at ROHHonorClub.com and the ROH App on all Apple and Android devices, and Roku!

Amid free agency, Le’Veon Bell announces mixtape featuring possible Steelers diss

first_imgView this post on Instagram Le’Veon Bell made a big announcement during the tampering period of NFL free agency Tuesday: He is dropping a mixtape.To set the scene, two Twitter accounts from former NFL players had hinted that Bell has already made a decision regarding his next team. Receiver Antonio Bryant tweeted, “Congrats (Bell) on getting that (money). Gonna let him tell you the team.” Akbar Gbajabiamila said, “am I allowed to tell people yet? Happy for you bro, make us proud!” “Life’s A Gamble” MARCH 13th🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 there’s so many people to thank…I obviously wanna thank all the producers, & my engineers @realricomusic @engineeredbyxay @ms550 & @idlabsmusic …also I wanna thank my family, close friends, & alllllll my supporters…this is truly a masterpiece, I promise youu 🤞🏾A post shared by LeVeon Bell (@leveonbell) on Mar 8, 2019 at 6:11pm PSTThe tracklist for “Life’s A Gamble” is as follows: To which Bell responded:yeahh, spill the beans https://t.co/cjhiRIk4rK— Le’Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) March 12, 2019MORE: 2019 NFL free agency trackerNaturally, everyone was expecting a free-agency decision to be announced. Instead, Bell announced he is dropping a mixape (could be an album; he didn’t specify). The running back has dropped musical projects in the past, including “Until the Post Interview,” “Post Interview,” and “No Days Off.” You can listen to most of his songs on his Soundcloud page.Bell’s latest album will be titled “Life’s A Gamble.” The cover art features playing cards, poker chips and throwing dice, which led some to think about a deal with the soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders. There were also a few reports from Tuesday that support this theory.  1. Lotto2. Talk Of The Town3. Large Amounts4. Free At Last5. She Loves My Drip6. One Of Me7. Addicted To U8. Overrated9. On Me10. Say No More11. Gas On E12. VVSTrack No. 4 seems like it could be a diss track aimed at the Steelers. Bell has shown in the past he is not afraid to reference real life in his rap songs with his Skip Bayless reference, his desire to make more money or his reference to fellow RB LeSean McCoy.Bell appears to make a brief Steelers reference in a short preview of a track off the album.Money is making me rudeI see that I’m in the newsAnd they not signing me back butThey gotta pay for it toopreview of @LeVeonBell’s mixtape dropping at midnight pic.twitter.com/1ZhG5Oq6Qm— Jordan Heck (@JordanHeckFF) March 12, 2019The best-case scenario in all of this: Bell announces his free-agency decision at some point in the album.

Potholes, black ice, and fog all are byproducts of snow melting

first_imgDES MOINES — The freezing and thawing have been brutal on city streets opening up large potholes. Iowa DOT Winter operations administrator, Craig Bargfrede  says state highways have not been immune from the problem. “With the freeze and refreeze that we have seen — that has generated some pretty significant potholes in many areas across the state,” according to Bargfrede.Water from melting snow is the culprit as the temperature drops at night and causes it to expand. “Water that gets down into the cracks and gets underneath pavement…that’s what causes the cracks and breaks and those potholes to appear out there in the pavement,” Bargfrede says. “This year especially with the amount of snow and moisture that we’ve gotten — and with the temperatures that we’ve seen — it’s just kind of compounded the problem out there.”The potholes can be seen and sometimes avoided before they cause damage to your car. Bargfrede says another problem caused by the melting snow often is not seen until its too late. “When we’ve got these really warm temperatures with this snowpack and that melting and then we get down to those low temperatures at night — its really a situation for creating more icy, black ice situations,” he says.The black ice can cause your car to skid and go out of control. Bargfrede says they try to get to it as soon as they can.  He says they monitor the situation and then go out and treat them on a case-by-case basis.Bargfrede says potholes and black ice are not the only thing you might encounter this time of year — so he says you should always be aware of changing conditions. “You have that fog, you have those temperatures varying up and down… they just need to be aware, don’t use your cruise control, slow down, just be patient,” Bargfrede says.And he says the rain and melting snow have caused water to cover many roadways and you should always be careful in flooding situations too.last_img read more
