While the vast majority of states require nonresident wholesale distributors and manufacturers who ship prescription drugs to their states to obtain a nonresident license, Puerto Rico was one of the few that did not have such a requirement. . That has now changed. Effective July 1, 2022, Puerto Rico began requiring all non-resident wholesalers and manufacturers who ship prescription and over-the-counter human and veterinary drugs, medical devices, and homeopathic and nutritional supplements within the Commonwealth to obtain a license of non-resident. , called “special authorization”. The Puerto Rico Auxiliary Secretariat for Health Facility Regulation and Accreditation (“SARAFS”), the agency responsible for issuing the special permits, has not yet provided guidance on whether third-party logistics providers are also subject to this new authorization requirement.

SARAFS published a notification regarding this new requirement on June 29, 2022, which summarizes the regulatory basis for the authorization requirement and details the application process. The notice directs previously identified non-resident facilities to complete the application process through the online renewal portal, which can be found here. When submitting the online application, each applicant must also complete and upload the following forms, which are available on the portal: Self-certification of compliance; Clear the criminal records of non-resident distributors; Certification of compliance with drug registration; and Certificate of guarantee. The special authorization will be valid for two years, after which it may be renewed.

Although the new regulations went into effect on July 1, 2022, SARAFS indicated that non-resident wholesalers and manufacturers who currently ship products to Puerto Rico can continue to do so until they receive their new special authorization. ; however, facilities not yet shipping to Puerto Rico must first obtain special authorization before beginning distributions. After receiving special authorization, licensees must ensure compliance with the provisions of the Puerto Rico Pharmacy Law, 20 LPRA § 410 and following, and its applicable regulations, including those relating to storage, handling, record keeping, personnel and annual reporting. If the Drugs and Pharmacy Division of SARAFS finds that a non-resident facility is not operating in accordance with these regulations, SARAFS may also inspect the facility at the facility’s expense. In the event of non-compliance, SARAFS may impose fines, revoke the special authorization or execute the required bond.

This new non-resident licensing requirement does not replace the existing requirement for wholesale distributors and non-resident manufacturers to register certain products shipped to Puerto Rico, but rather complements this requirement. In fact, SARAFS issued a second notice regarding a change in the process for nonresident wholesale distributors, manufacturers, and their agents to register products shipped to Puerto Rico. According to the notice, a new portal allowing wholesale distributors, manufacturers and their agents to register the products they ship to the Commonwealth was originally due to launch on June 30, 2022. However, there have been delays with the portal and the launch date has been pushed back to August 15, 2022.

Mainly, non-resident pharmacies are still not required to obtain a non-resident license or special authorization, or register products shipped to a patient in Puerto Rico pursuant to a valid prescription. See National Pharmacies, Inc. v. Feliciano-de-Melecio, 221 F.3d 235, 242 (2000); Regulations of the Secretaria de Salud Núm. 156, section 3.03(a).

The 11 Most Expensive Space Artifacts Ever Auctioned http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/the-11-most-expensive-space-artifacts-ever-auctioned/ Mon, 01 Aug 2022 17:05:57 +0000 http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/the-11-most-expensive-space-artifacts-ever-auctioned/

If you want to own an iconic piece of space history, know that it doesn’t come cheap. The most recent space item sold at auction was astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s Apollo 11 mission jacket, which fetched over $2.77 million. via Sotheby’s late last month– a higher price than any other American space artifact in auction history. Compare that to the autographed transcript of The First Phone Call to the Moon, which sold for just $31,325 in 2019; still an expensive proposition, but not nearly as lucrative.

👩🏼‍🚀 You love space. U.S. too. Let’s go together – join Pop Mech Pro.

People are so fascinated by early space programs that the prices of unique everyday items have skyrocketed from their original value. Take Apollo 15 Commander David Scott’s original wristwatch, worn on NASA’s fourth mission to land on the moon. It originally sold for $500, but sold at auction in 2015 for $1.6 million. The recent Aldrin-themed auction also sold items that were not directly related to space exploration, but are still intimately linked to the astronaut: a MTV Video Music Awards statuette sold for $88,200; and a 1973 letter from Neil Armstrong to Buzz Aldrin, trying to convince him not to sell his life story for a biopic, which sold for $21,420. (The film aired in 1976, so it seems Armstrong’s point was ignored.)

Together, Sotheby’s and Bonham’s sold the most expensive items. But smaller auction houses are players too, like the website CollectSpace.com.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of the 11 most expensive coins in space history that fetched the highest prices at auction.

Buzz Aldrin White Apollo 11 Mission Jacket ($2,772,500)

During his mission to the Moon and back in 1969, the astronaut Buzz Aldrin wore a tailored white jacket with NASA insignia and crest. On July 24, 2022, the 53rd anniversary of the Apollo 11 crew’s return to Earth, this well-preserved jacket sold for a remarkable $2.7 million. After nine minutes of intense bidding, the auctioneer called it “the most valuable American space artifact ever sold at auction.” The New York Times reported. It’s also the most spent amount on a jacket at auction, according to Forbes. Sotheby’s auctioned off dozens of memorabilia from Aldrin’s illustrious space career, but the jacket fetched more money than any of them. Almost all of the memorabilia have been sold, for a combined total of $8 million.

An anonymous buyer bought a white zippered bag that Neil Armstrong once filled with moon rock samples at a Sotheby’s auction in July 2017. The bag contained the dust leftovers from those rocks.

Part of a space program-themed auction to mark the 53rd anniversary of Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s iconic moon landing, the bag was just one of 173 items, including photographs , artifacts and models of spaceships, according The New York Times. More than 500 people, representing ten countries, were present at the auction. Sotheby’s identified the buyer or buyers of the Armstrong bag solely as American.

The bag has a strange history. NASA lost it after loaning it to a space museum in Kansas. It has been traced back to the man who once ran the museum, who was convicted of theft and related crimes. Then government officials who recovered the bag ended up mistaking it for another bag that hadn’t been on the moon and auctioning it off. Before it arrived at Sotheby’s, its new owner verified its authenticity with NASA, which then attempted to retrieve it as a historical artifact. But the owner refused and eventually won over $1 million at Sotheby’s sale in 2017.

Cisco NZ revenue drops by more than $18.5 million http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/cisco-nz-revenue-drops-by-more-than-18-5-million/ Sun, 31 Jul 2022 23:54:00 +0000 http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/cisco-nz-revenue-drops-by-more-than-18-5-million/

Cisco NZ released its latest financial report, showing the company’s total revenue was down more than $18.5 million year-over-year.

The report reveals that its revenue from customer contracts was $10,951,969 for the year ended July 31, 2021, compared to $29,530,044 for the same period in 2020.

Additionally, its cost of goods sold is $9,287,772 compared to $27,360,664 in 2020, with gross profit of $1,664,197 in 2021 compared to $2,169,380 in 2020.

Regarding Cisco’s operating activities, its revenue from customers totals $6,003,426 in 2021 compared to $24,047,320 in 2020.

Additionally, the company’s net cash flow from operating activities is $5,120,535 in 2021, a decrease of $6,003,309 from $11,123,844 in 2020.

However, Cisco’s assets have grown year on year.

The company’s total assets currently stand at $34,237,929, up $9,230,142 from $25,007,787 for the same period in 2021.

Cisco New Zealand’s audit was conducted independently by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The release of its latest financial report comes after Cisco launched a new Webex Wholesale Route-to-Market (RTM) for service provider partners to meet the changing needs of SMBs.

The company says the new sales model includes a single commercial agreement with each partner and a self-service platform for service providers to deliver managed services for Webex, as well as the agility, scalability and flexibility to create their own co-branded offerings.

According to Cisco, the Wholesale Partner Program offers consumption-based billing with fixed and predictable flat pricing per user/per month and offers service providers multiple billing options.

Partner onboarding experience includes dedicated Cisco experts, combined with comprehensive online training and a robust set of migration and marketing toolkits to drive market demand and serve SMB customers.

Cisco notes that this new wholesale offering is designed to make it easier for service providers to leverage their brand with a co-branded offering, leverage their market position, and innovate with their own services.

Partner Portal APIs and features provide a simple management experience. And by using a monthly consumption model, they can offer low-friction transactions perfectly suited to SMBs.

Additionally, Cisco’s success planning process includes a fully managed onboarding process for service provider partners from pre-work through production.

A parallel go-to-market process accelerates customer acquisition and migration activities through content marketing, sales enablement, adoption assets, support training, and campaign launches.

Nexgen Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Spirit Technology Solutions ASX ST1, is among the first service provider partners to sign up to wholesale for Webex.

Cisco is also in active wholesale trials for Webex with several Tier 1 global service providers.

The initial managed services packages for Webex available through Wholesale RTM include Webex Calling, Common Area Calling, Webex Meetings, and Webex Suite.

Cisco says Managed Services for Webex is the first offering available through its wholesale partner program.

More Cisco devices and other Cisco cloud services for the SMB market will be launched this year.

OKC’s skyline expands with a mix of 5-story offices and retail http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/okcs-skyline-expands-with-a-mix-of-5-story-offices-and-retail/ Sun, 31 Jul 2022 18:27:05 +0000 http://karolingischeklosterstadt.com/okcs-skyline-expands-with-a-mix-of-5-story-offices-and-retail/

One of Oklahoma City’s largest law firms is set to anchor a five-story mixed-use building to be constructed in the heart of Midtown.

Phillips Murrah will occupy the top three floors of the building, which will be along NW 10, west of Hudson Avenue and across from Fassler Hall. Restaurants and shops are planned for the first two floors.

A five-story office and retail building will be built facing NW 10 between Hudson and Walker Avenues, while a garage will be built south facing NW 9.

The 110-employee company has been based in Corporate Tower since 2006. During that time, Midtown has grown from a run-down medical hallway to a thriving mix of housing, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.

“While we really like the building we’re in right now, we wanted to do something a little different,” said Tom Wolfe, managing partner at Phillips Murrah. “Midtown seems like such a vibrant and growing place. We felt it was a good place for our lawyers and staff. Much of the driving force behind the decision to move was driven by some of the younger people in our business. »

After:What’s the top spot for a new arena for the Thunder?

The company was also considering making significant changes to its current space, Wolfe said.

“We’re getting a fresh start that way,” Wolfe said. “What worked 20 years ago doesn’t work as well today.”

A rooftop patio and restaurant are planned along the east end of a five-story building to be constructed along NW 10 across from Fassler Hall in Midtown.

The planned project provides parking

The 80,000 square foot building is part of a Midtown Renaissance development that will also include a parking garage for tenants and area visitors.

Chris Fleming, a Midtown Renaissance partner, said the garage is designed to fit the district’s approach to “shared parking” to make the most of the parking supply.
