Pharma news - September 20, 2017 - 6:55pm

When the Taser’s electrified darts struck him, Carl Bryan felt a shooting pain up his back that rattled his whole body, shaking his brain like a “peanut in a jar.” “If you were to shake that jar a hundred times as fast as you can and multiply that by a thousand,” he said. For Christa Keeton, getting shocked by Taser barbs felt like bees “crawling” through her skin. Eligio Torres Jr. likened the Taser’s electrical jolt to a “horrific electrical current just flowing through your body.” “You’re just shaking,” Torres said in court testimony.

Pharma news - September 20, 2017 - 6:50pm

By Julia Simon NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices settled up 2 percent on Wednesday despite a rise in U.S. crude inventories, with the market heading for its largest third-quarter gain in 13 years after the Iraqi oil minister said OPEC and its partners were considering extending or deepening output cuts. Brent crude futures rose $1.06, or 1.9 percent, to $56.20 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures gained 93 cents, or 1.9 percent, to $50.41. U.S. crude oil stockpiles jumped last week as imports and production increased, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said, as operations resumed from the impact of Hurricane Harvey which hit the Gulf Coast on Aug. 25.
