10 most dangerous jobs. Guess who’s not there?

first_imgFishing, the most dangerous jobFacts are very stubborn things. Very often they contradict what is considered general knowledge. Which raises the question: What is general knowledge? Isn’t it the opinions and attitudes fed constantly to the public through the dominant media? It takes big social upheavals to unseat the widespread lies that conveniently justify the status quo.Take the question of dangerous jobs. We hear a lot these days about certain occupations being very dangerous. I won’t tell you which ones. You already know, if you are alive and watch television or read the corporate newspapers.So let’s look at the official government figures on the 10 most dangerous occupations in the U.S. in 2011, the most recent year of data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.Here they are, in descending order, starting with the most fatalities per 100,000 workers in that occupation. Also listed are the total numbers of deaths that year in that category, as well as the median salaries for the type of work.1. Fishing: 127.3/100,000, 42 fatalities, median salary $25,5902. Logging: 104/100,000, 65 fatalities, $32,8703. Pilots and flight engineers: 56.1/100,000, 71 fatalities, about $100,0004. Refuse and recyclable material collectors: 36.4/100,000, 30 fatalities, $35,2305. Roofers: 34.1/100,000, 60 fatalities, $34,2206. Structural iron and steel workers: 30.3/100,000, 18 fatalities, $44,5407. Helpers, construction trades: 26.8/100,000, 15, about $25,0008. Farmers, ranchers, agricultural managers: 26.1/100,000, 268, $60,7509. Truck drivers: 25.9/100,000, 485, $38,20010. Natural resources and mining: 22.1/100,000, 721, $54,020Did you notice something about this list? Something missing?Well, actually a lot of people did notice. On the website where these figures can be found (bankrate.com), the Comments section of the site turned into a huge debate over the cops. Some comment contributors were indignant, claiming that somehow the figures weren’t right because the cops have very dangerous jobs. But others answered them with logic and sometimes with humor.Take this interesting exchange:A person with the username “zs” wrote: “Police officers keep this country from tearing it’s self [sic] apart each and every day.”“Bill Owen” replied to “zs”: “Right, cause the only thing stopping your neighbors from eating your family and raping your dog are the two cops at the donut shop.”“f0rtylegz” brought the figures on the police up to date: “In 2013, out of 900,000 sworn officers, just 100 died from a job-related injury. That’s about 11.1 per 100,000, or a rate of 0.01%. … The jobs above are two or three times more dangerous.”Many commented on how the police generally make much more money than the workers in the listed occupations, plus get good pensions, health plans and other benefits. And of course, that’s not counting the off-the-books “tips” that many cops extort from small businesses.Here’s a point that needs to be added to this discussion: The police really don’t belong in this list, either as number 20 or 30 or even lower. Because the others are workers. They work under the most dangerous conditions to produce goods and services that people really need.The police are not workers. On the contrary, they are anti-worker. Their primary function is to preserve the unjust capitalist order, which exploits and oppresses workers. The police are particularly brutal and murderous against those who are additionally oppressed by virtue of their color or national origin.Now that there’s a vibrant and courageous movement in the streets against police murders, led by youth of color, more people are challenging the false ideas promoted as “general knowledge.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Gilead Sciences eyes COVID-19 cash cow

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this As jobs are lost during the COVID-19 crisis, an overwhelming majority of workers and oppressed people in the U.S. have been worrying about paying bills and feeding their families. At the same time, a major U.S. pharmaceutical company is poised to turn this suffering into a cash cow to boost corporate profits.On March 23, using the 1983 Orphan Drug Act, the Food and Drug Administration promised pharmaceutical giant Gilead Sciences marketing rights for seven years for its antiviral drug remdesivir, seen as a possible treatment for the coronavirus.In using the rare orphan-drug status, the FDA granted this $22.5 billion corporation exclusive rights to profit from remdesivir production, while enjoying tax credits for research and development costs. Remdesivir had already received $79 million in U.S. government funding related to the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Africa.Hours before the announcement, Gilead told the New York Times that “overwhelming demand” left it unable to fulfill requests for emergency access to remdesivir. After the FDA designation, Gilead’s stock price immediately shot up.The orphan-drug designation was meant to spur drug companies to develop treatments for rare illnesses — those that impact less than 200,000 people. Fewer than 10 percent of rare-disease treatments get FDA approval. In 2018, the average price of developing an orphan drug was $98,000, compared to $5,000 for drugs without the designation.The number of COVID-19 cases worldwide today is approaching a million.While other companies are developing generic forms of remdesivir, the orphan-drug status would give Gilead sole access to U.S. markets, and patients would be prohibited from buying lower-priced generics.Granting special status to Gilead may have been in reaction to the March 13 announcement that Cuba’s BioCubaFarma Business Group’s antiviral recombinant Interferon Alfa 2-B (IFNrec) has been successfully used in China to cope with COVID-19 in its early stages. (tinyurl.com/ur4sa4n) IFNrec was developed 40 years ago to treat AIDS.Price-gouging historyUnder intense public pressure, Gilead backed down. On March 25, the company announced it would ask the FDA to rescind the orphan-drug designation. But it can still raise the price and exclude people from this much-needed medicine.Given Gilead’s history of over-pricing specialty drugs developed with government funds, it remains to be seen if this special status waiver will hold. There is also a question whether Joe Grogan, a former Gilead lobbyist now serving on Trump’s coronavirus task force, had a role in securing its “orphan” status.In 2013, Gilead won FDA approval for a new antiviral drug, Sovaldi, with a 90 percent cure rate for hepatitis C, after acquiring the drug by taking over its developer, Pharmasset. Then Gilead raised the price to $1,000 per pill or $84,000 for a 12-week course. Few could afford it.Shortly after procuring Sovaldi, Gilead introduced its successor, Harvoni, at $94,500 per treatment course. In some countries, generic versions of these drugs cost less than $1,000 for an entire course of treatment. In the 21 months after introducing the drugs, Gilead’s U.S. sales revenues soared to over $20 billion.In December 2015, an 18-month federal investigation of Gilead concluded that Gilead had set the price of Sovaldi as high as the market would bear, so that it could charge even more for Harvoni. Research and development costs were not a factor.Gilead’s price speculation resulted in heavy burdens for Medicare, Medicaid and the Bureau of Prisons, which were all limited by federal law in negotiating for lower drug costs. The result severely restricted access to the drugs for hep-C patients, whose lives depended on the new treatment.The study determined that even though Gilead knew its exorbitant prices would deny treatment to millions and create serious financial burdens for Medicare and Medicaid, the company still went ahead. While shedding light on Gilead’s greed, the federal investigation offered no concrete action to stop it.last_img read more

During this time he was subjected to torture and ill-treatment. He remained in ‘Adra until 03 October 2015, when he managed to inform his family that he was being transferred to an undisclosed location. Since then his whereabouts remain unknown and there are serious concerns for his life.Based on unconfirmed information that the family received from some local sources, there are fears that he may have been tried and sentenced to death by a Military Field Court in the Military Police headquarters in Al-Qaboun, Damascus. These courts are notorious for conducting closed-door proceedings that do not meet minimum international standards for a fair trial. Since his detention, many human rights groups have campaigned for his release. On 21 April 2015, the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention declared his detention a violation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and called for his release, yet the Syrian authorities refuse to free him.A Syrian of Palestinian parents, Khartabil is a 34-year-old computer engineer who worked to build a career in software and web development. Before his arrest, Khartabil used his technical expertise to help advance freedom of speech and access to information via the internet. He has won many awards, including the 2013 Index on Censorship Digital Freedom Award for using technology to promote an open and free internet, and was named one of Foreign Policy magazine’s Top 100 Global Thinkers of 2012 “for insisting, against all odds, on a peaceful Syrian revolution.”The signatory organizations express concern at his on-going arbitrary detention and enforced disappearance and believe that it is a direct result of his peaceful and legitimate work for the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of expression.

A new hearing has been set for 15 March.The case is prompted by article he wrote for El Universal on 12 September 2004 about alleged trafficking in identity papers at the National Office for Identification and Foreigners (now the Autonomous Service for Identification, Migration and Foreigners). One of the people named in the article was Col. Rafael Ángel González, then coordinator of the “Identity Mission” in Táchira.Col. González’s libel suit was filed on 13 January 2005 and was passed to the courts a month later. But immediately after the article appeared, a González representative requested use of the right of reply, to which Azócar responded that “this right has always been guaranteed.” The two parties signed an accord on 29 April 2005 under which González would use his right of reply as soon as the defence ministry gave him permission.A settlement verification hearing was held on 10 January 2007 at which González said he still had not received permission. Eight more court hearings were convened without any response from the defence ministry. Each time Azócar reiterated his offer of use of the right of reply.“Knowing Azócar’s judicial history and the often questionable prosecutions brought against him in the past, we have every reason to regard this as another instance of judicial harassment,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He has been hounded repeatedly because of his readiness to criticize the authorities when he was hosting a TV programme, ‘Café con Azócar,’ on the Televisión Regional de Táchira channel.”The press freedom organisation added: “Why, in this now old case, did the defence ministry not give the green light for this conciliatory offer approved by Col. González? Why did the court not ask for an explanation for the lack of response? The principle of fairness has not been respected.”Amendments to the criminal code in 2005 included a sharp increase in the penalties for press offences. If convicted, Azócar could face a possible one-year jail sentence (because the plaintiff held a public position) and a fine of up to 2,000 tax units (30,000 dollars).

His wife, Elsa González Padrón, said he was transferred to a hospital in the southeastern city of Guantánamo on 17 September but is refusing a drip and is extremely dehydrated. He has been detained since March 2003.“The Cuban government does not stop at silencing independent journalists, it also lets them die slowly in dreadful prison conditions,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Arroyo’s hunger strike worries us all the more as he is already very debilitated by more than two years in Cuban jails. We hope at the very least that he will get an improvement in conditions and we reiterate our call to the government for the release of all of the 23 journalists currently in prison.”Arroyo reportedly went on hunger strike in protest against mistreatment, in particular, the psychological torture to which he is subjected by certain prison staff. He is often put in a punishment cell and does not get the treatment he needs for chronic ailments. Fellow prisoner of conscience Félix Navarro has also reportedly been on hunger strike for nearly 10 days in solidarity with Arroyo.González, who has not been able to visit her husband for nearly four months, was turned back at the entrance to the Guantánamo hospital when she tried to visit him on 22 September.Aged 53, Arroyo is a member of the Union of Cuban Journalists and Writers. He was arrested during the spring 2003 crackdown on dissidents and independent journalists and was sentenced on 30 March 2003 to 26 years in prison.Mirtha Wong has meanwhile said she is worried about the state of health of her husband, Oscar Mario González, who was arrested on 25 July and is awaiting trial for allegedly violating the draconian Law 88. She has called for husband’s release until the trial, in which he faces a possible sentence of more than 20 years in prison. News Newslast_img read more
