California Department of Public Health and Los Angeles County officials said delays in the process had resulted in undercounts of COVID-19 infections dating back to July 26. It was not clear how extensive the underreporting was.The city embarked on putting together its own data reporting system, but it was yet to be operational Thursday, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.“Despite reaching out to our providers directly, we did not receive any reports via (spreadsheets) per CDPH guidelines,” said Derderian. “These providers are all currently working on fulfilling the request now, however.”As of Wednesday, the city had reported 2,035 infections and 111 deaths, city data shows.Derderian said the city expected to have data directly from local medical providers, and update its online COVID-19 Dashboard by Friday. But Derderian cautioned there was a possibility there could still be undercounts with the new system.“Also, as of this time, the CDPH has not yet announced when the Electronic Lab Reporting system will be functioning normally,” she added.“We are working very hard to collect this data despite the state’s glitch,” Derderian said.In the meantime, trace investigators were taking advantage of the time to attempt to recontact people who had received positive test results but have not returned prior calls from tracers, as well as working on improving data quality, “ so that we are ready to go with the expected backlog tomorrow,” she said.The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health had also released no COVID-19 statistics as of late Thursday afternoon.The CDPH reported 5,258 new detected infections and 166 deaths on Thursday.That placed California’s total known COVID-19 cases at 529,180 and increased the virus’ death toll in the state to 9,869.

In 2019, India ratified three WIPO treaties namely the Vienna, Nice and Locarno Agreements.[1] India also revised the Patents (Amendments) Rule in 2019[2] by which it allows both Indian and foreign applications to apply for expedited patent examinations.[3] Moreover, an 80% rebate is being provided to start-ups on patent filing fee.[4] India also rolled out National IPR Policy in 2016 and Trademark Rules 2017[5]. India, despite having laws and regulations for intellectual property, does not fare well in the US Special 301 Report and GIPC IP Index 2020. India is ranked 40th out of 53 countries in the International IP Index released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Global Intellectual Property Centre (GIPC) . Moreover, India continues to be placed in the ‘priority watch’ list in the Special 301 Report for “lack of sufficient measurable improvements to its IP framework on long-standing and new challenge which have negatively affected US right-holders.”[6] But, in reality, these reports show India in a bad light majorly because India does not cater to their profit-driven interests. Special 301 Report The office of the United States Trade Representatives (USTR) releases an annual Special 301 Report under section 182 of the Trade Act, 1974. This report is a result of statutory mandate of annually reviewing “foreign countries that deny adequate and effective protection or deny fair and equitable market access to United States.”[7] According to Robert Lighthizer, USTR, the Report conveys to its trading partners that “protection of America’s IP rights is the top priority”.[8] This report names and shames America’s trading partners accordingly. USTR classifies its trading partners as ‘priority watch list’ and ‘watch list’ to indicate that some problems exist in the nation in relation to IP enforcement, protection and market access. The US is authorised to develop ‘action plans’ for each nation that remains on Priority Watch List for a year without keeping in mind that country’s needs and interests. Action plan has “benchmarks” for nations to make them inclined to American’s interests. Section 306[9] empowers USTR to observe compliance of the nation with measures like trade actions. GIPC IP Index The IP Index is prepared by Pugatch Consilium who has hot-shot clients including big pharma companies.[10] Interests of businessmen is represented in the Index as the US Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation.[11] Therefore, it can be easily said that GIPC is not an academic institution, it is a lobbying group and its entire mandate is to protect American IP interests and it should come as no surprise that the criteria in IP index are designed to reflect how well a country protects American IP interests.[12] Two of the most blatant methodological flaws: Development quotient- The report acknowledges that income-level of the country affects IP regimes but it itself goes on to compare all economies on the same footing by using the same ‘baseline’ without considering their income level. This approach is in conflict with WIPO’s development agenda that says ‘development dimension’ is the core aspect of the global IP system.[13] Indices and Baseline- The index does not give reasons for choosing baselines for most indicators, it goes on to say “Where no adequate baselines are found in international law or treaties, the baseline values are based on what rights holder’s view as an appropriate environment and level of protection.” The term “adequate” is not defined and thus it is vague and opens the door for keeping it according to “right holder’s interest”. The narrow approach of ignoring the aspect of ‘public interest’ and ‘interest of competitors’ is not consistent with TRIPS.[14] For copyright length indicator, minimum copyright period 95 years is chosen as the baseline instead of ‘life of author plus 50 years’ as envisaged in TRIPS Agreement. Some major long-drawn concerns of the US: Compulsory licensing- Section 84[15] deals with compulsory licensing. It is consistent with the Directive Principles of State Policy as Article 47[16] tells that the primary duty of the State is to improve public health.[17] Granting of compulsory licenses is also in line with the TRIPS Agreement. The Doha Declaration on TRIPS and Public Health[18] says that countries can determine the grounds for granting compulsory licence.[19] India is therefore justified in exercising its right to issue compulsory licenses. Still, there has been no grant of a compulsory license in the last seven years in India and the IPO has maintained a wise and cautious approach in matters of compulsory licenses.[20] Section 3(d) of The Patents Act, 1970- It is only meant to limit evergreening of patents. In Novartis Ag v Union of India[21], it is held that Section 3(d) prevents ever-greening of patents as it does not allow patents to be granted to inventions involving new forms of a known substance unless it differs significantly with regards to therapeutic efficacy. Limited participation in international IP treaties – India has scored 2/7 despite being TRIPS compliant. The index does not mention how and why the seven mentioned agreements are a criterion for ranking countries. Most agreements mentioned tend to have provisions that go beyond TRIPS agreement towards TRIPS plus terms. It may be advantageous to multinational pharmaceutical companies, but it is at the cost of the public health in developing economies. Therefore, being a non-signatory to the mentioned agreements is in India’s interest and it’s not a weakness per se as reported in the Index. Should India pay heed? India being a member of WTO has to comply with the TRIPS Agreement and at the same time makes sure that the common man does not suffer. The balancing of two competing interests is to be done. Article 7[22] lays down the objective of the Agreement and mentions that the IP regime should “contribute to the promotion of technological innovation, to the mutual advantage of producers and users in a manner conducive to social and economic welfare, and to a balance of rights and obligations”. Article 8[23] reads “Member State’s right to legislative enactments protecting public health and nutrition is recognized, provided such measures are consistent with the provisions of the Agreement”. Moreover, Para 4 of Doha Declaration says “the TRIPS Agreement does not and should not prevent members from taking measures to protect public health. Accordingly, the Agreement should be interpreted and implemented in a manner supportive of WTO members’ right to protect public health and, in particular, to promote access to medicines for all.”[24] Keeping this in mind and on a conjoint reading of the same, it is understood that Member states have the rights to interpret the TRIPS Agreement in a manner conducive to their public health concerns. Therefore, it was rightly said by the Commerce and Industry Minister, in Rajya Sabha, that “The Special 301 Report is a unilateral measure to pressurise the nations to enhance their IPR protection beyond WTO’s TRIPS agreement. As per WTO, any kind of dispute between member states needs to be referred to the Dispute Settlement Body of the WTO and unilateral actions are not tenable under this regime. The Special 301 is an extra-territorial application of the domestic law of a country, which is inconsistent with the established norms of the WTO. In view of this, no action needs to be taken by the Government of India.”[25] India is showcasing a paradigm shift in its Intellectual Property Rights regime. However, US Special 301 Report outrightly shames nations whose practices are not in alignment to US’ interests. Not only this, but measures can be taken by USTR if a unilateral action plan handed to the sovereign trading partner is not complied with. Due to this unilateral, biased approach of the Report, no deference should be paid to it by the Indian Government. To sum up, there are a lot of aspects that the report has not considered or has chosen to view with a rather myopic perspective. The Special 301 Report is not legally accurate, just a document used to threaten other countries into submission to unilateral U.S. demands. In the GIPC IP Index, scores are given ignoring the TRIPS Agreement and the WIPO Development Agenda and all other international norms for flexibilities in IP regimes. One must not take these rankings on its face value and turn a blind eye to the indicators used and methodology employed for ranking the countries. India is a developing country and must strive for improvement in its IP fronts but should not succumb to the pressure of the US and ignore India’s interests, health issues and its developing needs and in trying to do so. We are a TRIPS compliant, developing country that lawfully exercises the flexibility allowed under the Agreement. India is a sovereign, welfare state driven by the Directive Principles of State Policy enumerated in the Constitution and thus keeps ahead the interest and health needs of its own people.

IndyCar driver who survived fiery crash hopes to walk at his wedding

first_imgMarch 8, 2019 /Sports News – National IndyCar driver who survived fiery crash hopes to walk at his wedding Written by Beau Lundcenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(NEW YORK) — An IndyCar driver who crashed at a speed of over 200 mph into a wall, a fence and another car spoke about the harrowing experience that left him unable to walk and says he hopes to train hard enough to walk at his wedding, and even get back into his race car. The crash last August, which was captured on video, could have been deadly for driver Robert Wickens, 29, who sustained multiple injuries to his legs, arms and spine. Speaking in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Good Morning America from a rehab facility in Colorado, Wickens and his fiancee, Karli Woods, recalled the over half-dozen injuries he suffered in the crash. Woods said she realized the severity of her partner’s injuries “the moment I walked into the hospital room.” “They just said, ‘He’s paralyzed,’” she said. “And they didn’t even know if he was going make it.” She recalled how he looked immediately after the crash, saying he was on a ventilator, “And everything was, you know, casted and in braces and neck brace and black eyes. … That was the hard part.” Wickens explained the long list of injuries he sustained to GMA, which included a broken tibia and fibula in both legs, a fractured right hand, an ulna fracture in his right arm, a dislocated elbow, a broken ring finger, spinal fractures, a concussion and either “four or six” broken ribs. “I think that’s it,” he said after listing his injuries. While doctors couldn’t tell the couple if Wickens would ever be able to walk again, he said he is determined, focusing on his recovery with a special goal in mind: His wedding this coming September. “Goal No. 1,” he said, is being able to walk at his wedding. “And then shortly after that, goal No. 2 is to see … if I’m fit enough to try and get back in an IndyCar for the 2020 season,” he added. He acknowledged that this is a very unrealistic goal, but added, “I’ve spent my whole life thinking unrealistically.” In the six short months since his accident, Wickens has already made huge strides in his recovery: standing on his own, walking with a walker and even pedaling on a bike. He says he’s never worked this hard for anything in his life, “not even close.” “I’ve been a hard worker my whole life, but this … nothing even comes close to, to what this is,” Wickens said. The race car driver said he strives to be the best in what he does, and that includes “I want to be the best spinal recovery … in the history of spinal recoveries.” “I’m getting more and more back every day,” he added. “There still … some numb spots for sure … and then I’m starting to feel some pain.” He said he welcomes the feelings, however, noting how when he was doing laundry the other day he took “everything out of the dryer and put it on my lap.” “And I could feel the heat of, like, the clothes,” he said. “And that was, like, the first time … I’ve noticed that I felt temperature.” This weekend, the couple will travel to St. Petersburg, Florida, to watch the start of the IndyCar season, remaining hopeful that one day he’ll be back behind the wheel. Despite everything, Woods said she supports seeing her fiance’s return to a race car, if he wants to compete again. “I do now. If you asked me that a few months ago it would be a hard no,” she said. “I did not want him to race again.” She added that she was “so afraid to lose him” during the first month after his injury. “And now, you know, I just see all of the work that he’s putting into everything,” she said. “And I look forward to the day that he gets back in a car.” Despite almost dying, Wickens said he has no hesitancy to get back behind the wheel. “Maybe I take half a lap and go, like, ‘Nope, nope, nope,’” he quipped. “‘Not for me,’” but I really don’t see that happening.” If there is one thing Wickens hopes people take away from his story it is “to show anybody out there that nothing’s impossible.” He continued: “That all you have to do is just work hard, and hard work and determination prevails, every single time.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

New Jeff Buckley Interactive Video Lets You Explore Alternative Narratives

first_imgEarlier this month, a 10-track collection of previously unheard Jeff Buckley demos were released, entitled You And I. Recorded shortly after he was signed to his label in 1993, the unheard demos sat forgotten for over 20 years, and feature mostly covers, varying from The Smiths, to Bob Dylan, Sly & The Family Stone, Bukka White and Led Zeppelin, as well as a few musical rarities and two original songs. Today, a new music video for Buckley’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “Just Like A Woman” has been released, as created by interactive media company Interlude and Blind design studios. Unlike a traditional music video, this one is entirely interactive, giving viewers complete control over the love story’s narrative. By clicking different story cells as they pass through the screen, the scene changes. There are 73 different story cells to click on, with around 1 sexdecillion possible outcomes (that’s 1 with 51 zeros).  Spend The Next 52 Minutes Inside A Young Jeff Buckley’s Head With ‘You And I’ [Full Album Stream/Review]The music can also be controlled by clicking different story cells. The song starts out with a young Buckley’s voice and a guitar, but can add over 16,000 different combinations of musical choices, from a piano to an entire orchestra with a choir. This unique platform allows for the originally stripped-down cut of the song to be experienced endlessly different each time.“The goal of this video is for both existing and new fans to enjoy many ways of experiencing the music, and for each individual audience member to return over and over to be involved with the emotion differently each time,” Yoni Block, Interlude CEO and co- founder, tells Mashable.Part of what makes the old recordings in You And I so spectacular is their true nature. The interactive music video platform gives fans the opportunity to experience Buckley’s music in a more diverse setting, as the artist left this Earth much to soon only four years after his career truly began.Jeff Buckley’s Previously-Unreleased Recording Of The Smiths Surfaces With New Music Video“Jeff Buckley fans have always felt a strong personal connection with his music, which should be especially true with the incredibly intimate recordings on You and I,” explains Legacy Recordings president Adam Block.“We hope this video will be a moving way to extend that personal connection by allowing people to express themselves and how the song makes them feel in almost endless ways.”Take a spin:[via Mashable]last_img read more
