Nicaragua cancels planned welfare overhaul in bid to end protests

Pharma news - April 22, 2018 - 5:42pm

By Oswaldo Rivas MANAGUA (Reuters) - Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said on Sunday a planned overhaul of the welfare system that sparked days of deadly protests had been canceled, as he attempted to end the biggest crisis of his administration. Ortega has been on the defensive since demonstrations began on Wednesday against the plan to increase worker contributions to social security and to lower pensions. The pope, the U.S. government and business leaders all urged Ortega to stop the violence before he appeared on television and said the measures approved last week would be withdrawn.

Corker tepid in support of fellow Republican in Senate race in Tennessee

Pharma news - April 22, 2018 - 3:21pm

U.S. Senator Bob Corker was notably lukewarm on Sunday in his endorsement of the fellow Republican running for his seat in Tennessee in November, saying he was supporting her but would not campaign against her Democratic opponent. Asked why Tennessee voters should choose Republican U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn over Democrat Phil Bredesen, Corker said: "Well, I think most people in our state - it is a red state - will focus on the first vote she makes. "I think, at the end of the day, that is going to be a big factor in the race," Corker, who is not seeking re-election, said on CNN's "State of the Union." Pressed on why he was not giving a more robust endorsement, Corker said after a considerable pause: "I'm supporting the nominee. I have worked with the nominee for some time. And I don't know what else to say." Republicans are trying to retain control of the 100-member U.S. Senate, where they have a 51-49 advantage, in November congressional elections.

Canadian accused of killing Peruvian medicine woman lynched in Amazon

Pharma news - April 22, 2018 - 12:57pm

A Canadian man was lynched in the Peruvian Amazon after residents of a remote village accused him of killing an 81-year-old medicine woman a day earlier, a spokesman for the attorney general's office said on Sunday. Olivia Arevalo, a traditional healer of the Shipibo-Conibo tribe, was shot twice and died on Thursday near her home in the Amazonian region of Ucayali, said Ricardo Palma Jimenez, the head of a group of prosecutors in Ucayali. Some villagers had blamed Arevalo's murder on Sebastian Paul Woodroffe, a 41-year-old Canadian citizen who lived in the region and who was believed to have been one of her clients, said Jimenez.
