October 16, 2017 - 6:36pm

As tensions with North Korea continue to rise, the United States continues to bring more long-range precision striking power into the region.

Republicans 'worried losing House of Representatives could spell impeachment for Trump'

October 16, 2017 - 5:37pm

Republicans are reportedly concerned that Donald Trump could be impeached if they lose control of the House of Representatives. While chances were once slim that Democrats would retake the House in 2018, Mr Trump’s feuds with members of his own party and his lack of major legislative wins have made the possibility more likely. Democrats need a net gain of 24 seats in the 2018 midterm elections to have a majority in the 435-member House.

U.S. judge in Texas invalidates Allergan patents on Restasis

October 16, 2017 - 4:34pm

A U.S. judge on Monday invalidated patents on Allergan Plc's dry-eye medicine Restasis on grounds that the patents cover ideas that are obvious, sending shares of the pharmaceutical company down 3.5 percent. Judge William Bryson issued the ruling in federal court in Marshall, Texas, in a longstanding dispute between Allergan and generic drugmakers Mylan NV, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd and Akorn Inc. Bryson said a group of patents Allergan obtained on Restasis, which are set to expire in 2024, should not have been granted because they describe methods of treatment that were obvious in light of earlier patents granted to the company.
