  • [단독외신] Hypera Pharma Switches to Rimini Street Support for Its SAP Applications
    Hypera Pharma Switches to Rimini Street Support for Its SAP Applications Hypera Pharma Switches to Rimini Street Support for its SAP Applications     Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products and a Salesforce partner, today announced that Hypera Pharma, Brazil’s largest pharmaceutical company, has switched from SAP to Rimini Street Support for its highly customized SAP ECC 6.0 applications, Microsoft SQL Server Database and SAP BusinessObjects software. The company also switched from SAP’s Solution Manager to Rimini Street Watch for SAP, ensuring seamless monitoring for its SAP systems. By switching to Rimini Street Support, Hypera Pharma was able to leverage its significant support savings to fund the company’s business transformation priorities, including expanding the corporate pharmaceutical brand and funding cutting-edge pharmaceutical research and development (R&D) with Hynova, the company’s modern research center in Brazil.Procurement Drives Innovation by Partnering with IT And Business LeadersBased in São Paulo, Hypera Pharma produces popular medicine brands used by over 200 million Brazilians, along with vitamins, nutritional supplements and dermo cosmetics. At the end of 2017, the company announced a new corporate brand with an exclusive focus on the pharmaceutical sector, a competitive industry that demands high investments in innovation and R&D, along with increasing capacity to launch new products and medicines to its consumers more often. This new business direction sparked Hypera Pharma’s leaders to reinvent its operations, realign business priorities and seek out initiatives to drive cost optimization.The decision to move to Rimini Street Support was spearheaded by Hypera Pharma’s heads of procurement and IT, who were tasked with optimizing resources and saw the opportunity to reduce the spending for the company’s high SAP maintenance and support costs and at the same time improve support service. They worked closely to create a business case to demonstrate to the company’s CEO that switching to third-party support would bring security, operational efficiency and savings. The company’s heads of procurement and IT determined that Hypera Pharma should not be locked into the vendor’s time-bound upgrade path to S/4HANA as it did not make sense for the business in the short term. They found little value and no ROI in making this highly disruptive move when their current customized ERP system perfectly met their business needs.“Procurement leaders should feel empowered to bring ideas to company leaders on how their organization can be more strategic and align with business priorities. They can influence decision-makers on how IT initiatives, such as adopting third-party support, adds value and frees up resources for other important projects and innovation,” said Humberto Guimaraes, head of procurement, Hypera Pharma. “Switching to Rimini Street Support is part of a new mindset that has enabled the company to be more relevant in the pharmaceutical industry. With our support savings, we can increase investments across the business, including product R&D, digitalization, process automation and new ERP applications that modernize logistics operations and allow product traceability.”Ultra-Responsive Support with Industry-Leading SLAsHypera Pharma, along with all Rimini Street clients, benefits from the Company’s flexible, premium-level enterprise software support model, including its industry-leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) of 10-minute response times for all critical Priority 1 cases. Clients are also assigned a Primary Support Engineer, backed by a team of functional and technical experts with an average of 15 years’ experience in the client’s specific enterprise software system. Hypera Pharma was using some components of SAP Solution Manager, but working with Rimini Street’s Proactive Support Services team, the company instead implemented Rimini Street Watch for SAP. The solution combines proactive diagnostics and web-based dashboards to help Hypera Pharma identify and mitigate issues before they become critical.“Maintaining our ERP support with SAP meant staying in the comfort zone. Rimini Street showed that the change to third-party support is worthwhile. Now we have reduced our SAP maintenance and support costs, allowing those resources to be directed towards our current business goals. We no longer worry about our ERP support since switching to Rimini Street,” continued Guimaraes.“Modern companies in the digital era like Hypera Pharma, who want to maintain a leadership position in the market, need to optimize their IT costs and find resources to invest in innovation and business transformation,” said Edenize Maron, general manager, Latin America, Rimini Street. “The company’s heads of procurement and IT spearheaded the change to third-party support to generate cost savings that contributed to the organization’s strategic business goals, including modernizing logistics and accelerating R&D to bring products to market quicker. This demonstrates how key it is that all company leaders participate in supporting growth and innovation.”

  • [단독외신] Microsoft defends diversity efforts after feds allege discrimination
    [단독외신] Microsoft defends diversity efforts after feds allege discrimination Getty Images       Microsoft stood by its efforts to hire and promote more black staffers this week after the feds raised concerns that it was making discriminatory employment decisions. The US Department of Labor took issue with Microsoft’s June pledge to double its number of black and African American managers and other leaders by 2025, warning the tech giant in a letter that it’s forbidden as a federal contractor from discriminating against workers because of their race. The Sept. 29 letter also asked Microsoft to submit records proving it’s not making illegal race-based hiring decisions — an allegation the company said it “emphatically” denies. “We hire and promote the most qualified person. And nothing we announced in June changes that,” Dev Stahlkopf, Microsoft’s corporate vice president and general counsel, said in a blog post Tuesday. “Instead, our continued focus is to work hard to consider and develop the broadest range of qualified candidates for opportunities.” Microsoft was among several large companies that announced effort this summer to address racism and promote opportunities for black people amid massive protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd. In a June 23 message announcing Microsoft’s initiatives, CEO Satya Nadella said the company would expand leadership development programs for midlevel black employees and pair higher-ranking black staffers with mentors to help them climb the corporate ladder. But the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs indicated Microsoft’s plans may run afoul of the government’s guidelines for promoting diversity in hiring. Officials set an Oct. 29 deadline for the company to submit documents related to its efforts to help black employees. “This statement by the CEO did not reference any established goals in an affirmative action program, and appears to imply that employment action may be taken based on race,” office director Craig Leen wrote in the letter, which the feds provided to The Post. While federal contractors are supposed to set goals for recruiting minorities and women based on availability, “contractors must not engage in discriminatory practices in meeting these goals,” Leen said. Microsoft is confident that its diversity efforts comply with all federal employment laws, Stahlkopf said. The company will provide the Labor Department with the information it requested and defend its approach if needed, he said. “We look forward to helping the [Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs] understand the legality of our programs as we work towards a shared goal of promoting diversity in full conformity with federal law,” Stahlkopf said.

  • [단독외신] Eli Lilly seeks emergency use of its antibody drug for COVID-19
    [단독외신] Eli Lilly seeks emergency use of its antibody drug for COVID-19   LightRocket via Getty Images       Drugmaker Eli Lilly says it has asked the US government to allow emergency use of its experimental antibody therapy based on early results from a study that suggested the drug reduced symptoms, the amount of virus, hospitalizations and ER visits for patients with mild or moderate COVID-19. Eli Lilly announced the partial results Wednesday in a news release; they have not yet been published or reviewed by independent scientists. Its drug is similar to one that President Trump received on Friday from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. These medicines supply concentrated versions of specific antibodies to help the immune system clear the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. They’re given as a one-time treatment through an IV. Lilly has already started making one of the two antibodies in its drug, betting that ongoing studies will prove it worthwhile. It’s not clear if the evidence will be viewed as strong enough for the Food and Drug Administration to grant emergency use authorization, as it has done for the antiviral drug remdesivir. The results are an interim look at a mid-stage study in which 112 people received the antibodies and 156 got a placebo. The amount of virus was significantly lower 11 days later in those given the drug — the main goal of the study. Virus also was lower at earlier time points as well. Symptom scores were better at three days. About 5.8 percent of patients given placebo required hospitalization or an emergency room visit versus 0.9 percent of those given the antibodies. The company said there were no serious drug-related side effects.

  • [단독외신] US workers file 840,000 new jobless claims as crisis total tops 63 million
    [단독외신] US workers file 840,000 new jobless claims as crisis total tops 63 million   Enlarge Image Three disease experts have concerns about the long-term physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies.AP       Another 840,000 American workers applied for unemployment benefits last week as the coronavirus continued to threaten the US economy, the feds said Thursday. The US Department of Labor’s latest seasonally adjusted figures brought the number of initial jobless claims filed amid the COVID-19 crisis to about 63.6 million — the equivalent of nearly 40 percent of the nation’s total workforce. Last week’s filings fell from the prior week’s revised total of 849,000 but outpaced economists’ expectations for 820,000 new claims. They also marked the sixth consecutive week with filings hovering between 800,000 and 900,000 — still far above the Great Recession’s weekly peak of 665,000. The number may have been driven down by California pausing its processing of unemployment applications for two weeks to work through a backlog of claims and implement anti-fraud technology. Continuing claims, which measure ongoing joblessness on a one-week lag, fell to about 10.9 million in the week ending Sept. 26, continuing their steady decline as more unemployed workers likely exhausted the 26 weeks of benefits that states generally provide. Experts fear the labor market’s recovery from the spring’s massive coronavirus-fueled job losses will falter if the government doesn’t provide another round of aid to the ailing economy. But President Trump pulled the plug on broad stimulus negotiations with Congress this week, raising further questions about when more help will arrive. “Newly reported job losses remain heavy, and it is still unclear at this point whether there will be enough offsetting new job creation to produce a sixth consecutive monthly increase in payrolls in October,” Wrightson ICAP experts wrote in a commentary.

  • [단독 외신] Louis Vuitton’s LVMH beefs up legal team in fight over Tiffany merger
    [단독 외신] Louis Vuitton’s LVMH beefs up legal team in fight over Tiffany merger     Shutterstock         The company behind Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior is building its legal team as it fights claims that its trying to wiggle out of a $16 billion merger with Tiffany. LVMH has hired famed French lawyer Jean-Michel Darrois to help advise it on the battle, which threatens to raise the curtain on French governmental proceedings, two sources close to the situation said. Darrois, a commander of the French Legion of Honor, has been a public supporter of French President Emmanuel Macron. In 1999, he defended French Prime Minister Laurent Fabius in a suit that obtained a dismissal and is now a counselor to French CEOs and other wealthy people. The battle between the two retailers kicked off earlier this month when LVMH said it wouldn’t be able to complete its $16.2 billion merger of the New York jeweler featured in the 1961 flick “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” by the Nov. 24 deadline. In a statement, LVMH said the French government had instructed it in a letter to wait until Jan. 6 of next year to close the deal in response to the US’s threat to impose tariffs on French goods. Tiffany has sued LVMH in Delaware to force it to meet the Nov. 24 deadline because once the merger agreement expires, LVMH can seek to lower the price or walk away. And as The Post has previously reported, people close to Tiffany have been raising questions about whether LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault, or those close to him, pressured French government officials for help in obtaining the letter as a pretext to delay the merger. “LVMH’s shifting explanations indicate bad faith in its dealings with Tiffany and are nothing more than distractions meant to hide its efforts to run out the clock and avoid fulfilling its obligations under the merger agreement,” Tiffany said in a statement on Wednesday. The company has blasted LVMH’s government request as “a non-binding advisory letter” and is expected to explore whether France can even order a company to stop a merger without first going through the European Union. Darrois is expected to help LVMH — and Arnault, the richest man in Europe — manage this aspect of the case and not the Delaware court lawsuit, sources said. ”He’s viewed in Paris as the ultimate consigliere,” the source said. LVMH, which declined to comment, has said it is doing all it can to close the deal.

  • [단독외신] Bill Gates says Pfizer has best shot at early COVID-19 vaccine
    [단독외신] Bill Gates says Pfizer has best shot at early COVID-19 vaccine           Bill Gates says Pfizer has the best chance of seeking emergency approval for a coronavirus vaccine by next month even though he thinks such an aggressive timeline is unlikely. “The only vaccine that if everything went perfectly, might seek the emergency use license by the end of October, would be Pfizer,” the billionaire tech tycoon-turned-philanthropist told CNBC in an interview published Tuesday. Pfizer’s vaccine is one of three currently going through so-called Phase 3 clinical trials in the US, crucial late-stage studies aimed at proving whether the inoculations are safe and effective. CEO Albert Bourla said this week that the New York-based drugmaker will likely know by the end of next monthwhether its experimental COVID-19 shot actually works. Gates — a Microsoft co-founder who is the world’s second-richest person with a net worth of $122.9 billion — noted that Pfizer’s shot produced “good antibody levels” in the first two stages of clinical testing. But he nevertheless doubts that any candidate will try to have a vaccine approved in the US by the end of October, according to CNBC. “I do think once you get into, say, December or January, the chances are that at least two or three will (seek approval) — if the effectiveness is there,” Gates told the network. Gates also noted that Pfizer and eight other drugmakers have pledged not to seek emergency authorization or approval for their vaccines until they’re proven safe and effective. The companies made the joint pledge last week amid reports that the Trump administration would try to fast-track the approval process. “The good news is that the leading vaccine companies today said that they won’t apply even for the emergency use license until they have a proof of efficacy,” Gates said in the CNBC interview. “We also have to go through all the safety steps so that people feel like they want to participate in taking this vaccine.” Pfizer was one of 15 life sciences companies that partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in March to speed up the development and delivery of COVID-19 vaccines, diagnostics and treatments. The foundation’s Strategic Investment Fund has also invested in Pfizer and other pharmaceutical firms involved in the vaccine race, including Merck, Sanofi and Pfizer partner BioNTech, according to its website.

  • Phase II trial results demonstrated improvement in cognition with BI 425809 in adult patients with schizophrenia
    Phase II trial results demonstrated improvement in cognition with BI 425809 in adult patients with schizophrenia        Boehringer Ingelheim today announced the results from a 12-week, placebo-controlled Phase II trial, that demonstrated BI 425809 has met its primary endpoint. The data showed improvement in cognition in stable adult patients with schizophrenia.[1] Central to many everyday tasks, impairment of cognitive function still constitutes a major burden for patients, and no pharmacological treatments are currently approved for cognitive impairment associated with schizophrenia (CIAS). These results presented at the 33rd European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress will advance the understanding of how deficits in transmission of signals between nerve cells may contribute to diminishing cognition in people living with schizophrenia.[2] The Gly-T1 inhibitor, BI 425809, forms a key component of Boehringer Ingelheim’s Central Nervous System (CNS) research program. The latest trial results, along with an ongoing combination Phase II study of BI 425809 and adjunctive computerized cognitive training, will help determine the direction for BI 425809 in further schizophrenia research.[3,4] Prof. W. Wolfgang Fleischhacker, Medical University Innsbruck, Austria: “The outcome of this trial is an important step forward in our understanding of cognition in schizophrenia. Cognitive impairment causes significant challenges for people in their everyday functioning. Patients with schizophrenia struggle with remembering things like birthdays, learning new tasks, concentrating, or making decisions that affect their everyday life. Advancing our understanding of how we might improve these symptoms in schizophrenia is significant for the research community and the patients and families living with this condition.” The Phase II results of BI 425809 in cognitive impairment associated with schizophrenia are being further evaluated to assess how they will support the continued research and development for the treatment of schizophrenia. “The trial results for our investigational compound BI 425809 in schizophrenia are encouraging. This is a positive advancement in our mechanistic knowledge of how excitatory neurotransmissions affect aspects of mental illness, aligning with our systematic neurobiological approach to CNS research,” adds Dr Vikas Mohan Sharma, M.D., head of medicine CNS, Retinopathies & Emerging Areas, Boehringer Ingelheim. “We recognize this is important news for people affected by schizophrenia. We are making progress in developing treatments which will not only reveal important advances in our understanding of schizophrenia but also potentially other neuropsychiatric diseases.” Cognition is a fundamental aspect of everyday life, including problem solving, memory and attention. When affected, people living with poor cognition can have a reduced mental ability to process information, remember straightforward things or perceive other people’s emotions and expressions. These functions are common to many forms of mental disorders such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease and depression. Finding solutions for cognitive impairment is a key area of Boehringer Ingelheim CNS research.

  • Corona Chuseok 'Kim Young-ran Act' announced an upward revision of the upper limit of agricultural and fisheries products futures from 100,000 won to 200,000 won.
    Corona Chuseok 'Kim Young-ran Act' announced an upward revision of the upper limit of agricultural and fisheries products futures from 100,000 won to 200,000 won.           A major Korean holiday, Chuseok (also known as Korean Thanksgiving), is coming at the end of the month (September 30 – October 2), and for this holiday season only, the Korean government has passed a temporary increase to the gifts threshold under the Anti-Graft Act.  The temporary increase applies only to gifts comprised of agricultural/fisheries products (described below), and the limit will increase from KRW 100,000 (approx. US$85) to KRW 200,000 (approx. US$170).  The increased limit is applicable from September 10 to October 4, 2020. As you may be aware, the Anti-Graft Act generally prohibits giving (1) anything of value to Public Officials (including officers and employees of government entities, state-owned enterprises, public entities, public or private media companies, public or private schools) when related to the Public Official’s duties, and (2) any benefit exceeding KRW 1 million per instance or KRW 3 million in aggregate per fiscal year when not related to the Public Official’s duties.   The Anti-Graft Act provides several exceptions, however, including for meals and gifts provided to facilitate the relationship or as a matter of courtesy (but not when there is a “directly pending matter”).  The meals limit is KRW 30,000 and the gifts limit is KRW 50,000, with a higher limit of KRW 100,000 for gifts comprised of at least 50% agricultural or fisheries products.  “Agricultural or fisheries products” are defined by statute and include, for example, boxes of fruit, meat, or fish, which are common holiday gifts; however, they do not include, for example, salt or certain processed foods. To address the difficulties within the agricultural and fisheries industries in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC; government entity overseeing the Anti-Graft Act) proposed a temporary increase to the limit for gifts comprised of agricultural and fisheries products, from KRW 100,000 to KRW 200,000.  It passed the State Council’s review on September 10, 2020, and will apply until October 4, 2020.

    [단독외신] Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian official, citing Israel-UAE peace deal   Nomination was submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament     President Trump: Israel and the UAE have agreed to finalize a historic peace agreement President Trump announces a ‘historic peace agreement’ between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, saying they agreed to ‘full normalization of relations.’   Just weeks after helping to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), President Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, lauded Trump for his efforts toward resolving protracted conflicts worldwide. “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of Parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told Fox News in an exclusive interview. TRUMP ANNOUNCES PEACE AGREEMENT BETWEEN ISRAEL, UAE Tybring-Gjedde, in his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, said the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between Israel and the UAE. “As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,” he wrote. Also cited in the letter was the president’s “key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties and … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea.” Tybring-Gjedde, further, praised Trump for withdrawing a large number of troops from the Middle East. “Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter,” he wrote. This is not Trump’s first such nomination, as Tybring-Gjedde submitted one along with another Norwegian official in 2018 following the U.S. president’s Singapore summit with Kim Jong Un. Japan’s prime minister reportedly did the same. Trump did not win. Tybring-Gjedde, a member of a conservative-leaning populist party in Norway, told Fox News that his latest nomination is not about trying to curry favor with the U.S. president. KUSHNER TOUTS PEACE AGREEMENT “I’m not a big Trump supporter,” he said. “The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts – not on the way he behaves sometimes. The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.” The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to then-President Barack Obama for what the Nobel Committee called his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." That decision made just nine months into Obama’s first term was met with criticism in the U.S. – including from Donald Trump, then a private citizen. Lech Walesa, Poland’s former president and a 1983 Nobel laureate, also said at the time it was too early to bestow the award on Obama -- just 263 days after taking office: “Too fast. For the time being Obama’s just making proposals. But sometimes the Nobel Committee awards the prize to encourage responsible action.” Even Obama was taken aback, saying at the time he was “surprised and humbled” by the Nobel Committee’s decision. “To be honest,” he said, “I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who have been honored by this prize, men and women who’ve inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.” Besides Obama, three other U.S. presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize: President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 for “having negotiated peace in the Russo-Japanese war”; President Woodrow Wilson in 1920 for being the “leading architect of the League of Nations”; and President Jimmy Carter in 2002 for “his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts.”

  • [단독외신] Hypera Pharma Switches to Rimini Street Support for Its SAP Applications
    Hypera Pharma Switches to Rimini Street Support for Its SAP Applications Hypera Pharma Switches to Rimini Street Support for its SAP Applications     Rimini Street, Inc. (Nasdaq: RMNI), a global provider of enterprise software products and services, the leading third-party support provider for Oracle and SAP software products and a Salesforce partner, today announced that Hypera Pharma, Brazil’s largest pharmaceutical company, has switched from SAP to Rimini Street Support for its highly customized SAP ECC 6.0 applications, Microsoft SQL Server Database and SAP BusinessObjects software. The company also switched from SAP’s Solution Manager to Rimini Street Watch for SAP, ensuring seamless monitoring for its SAP systems. By switching to Rimini Street Support, Hypera Pharma was able to leverage its significant support savings to fund the company’s business transformation priorities, including expanding the corporate pharmaceutical brand and funding cutting-edge pharmaceutical research and development (R&D) with Hynova, the company’s modern research center in Brazil.Procurement Drives Innovation by Partnering with IT And Business LeadersBased in São Paulo, Hypera Pharma produces popular medicine brands used by over 200 million Brazilians, along with vitamins, nutritional supplements and dermo cosmetics. At the end of 2017, the company announced a new corporate brand with an exclusive focus on the pharmaceutical sector, a competitive industry that demands high investments in innovation and R&D, along with increasing capacity to launch new products and medicines to its consumers more often. This new business direction sparked Hypera Pharma’s leaders to reinvent its operations, realign business priorities and seek out initiatives to drive cost optimization.The decision to move to Rimini Street Support was spearheaded by Hypera Pharma’s heads of procurement and IT, who were tasked with optimizing resources and saw the opportunity to reduce the spending for the company’s high SAP maintenance and support costs and at the same time improve support service. They worked closely to create a business case to demonstrate to the company’s CEO that switching to third-party support would bring security, operational efficiency and savings. The company’s heads of procurement and IT determined that Hypera Pharma should not be locked into the vendor’s time-bound upgrade path to S/4HANA as it did not make sense for the business in the short term. They found little value and no ROI in making this highly disruptive move when their current customized ERP system perfectly met their business needs.“Procurement leaders should feel empowered to bring ideas to company leaders on how their organization can be more strategic and align with business priorities. They can influence decision-makers on how IT initiatives, such as adopting third-party support, adds value and frees up resources for other important projects and innovation,” said Humberto Guimaraes, head of procurement, Hypera Pharma. “Switching to Rimini Street Support is part of a new mindset that has enabled the company to be more relevant in the pharmaceutical industry. With our support savings, we can increase investments across the business, including product R&D, digitalization, process automation and new ERP applications that modernize logistics operations and allow product traceability.”Ultra-Responsive Support with Industry-Leading SLAsHypera Pharma, along with all Rimini Street clients, benefits from the Company’s flexible, premium-level enterprise software support model, including its industry-leading Service Level Agreement (SLA) of 10-minute response times for all critical Priority 1 cases. Clients are also assigned a Primary Support Engineer, backed by a team of functional and technical experts with an average of 15 years’ experience in the client’s specific enterprise software system. Hypera Pharma was using some components of SAP Solution Manager, but working with Rimini Street’s Proactive Support Services team, the company instead implemented Rimini Street Watch for SAP. The solution combines proactive diagnostics and web-based dashboards to help Hypera Pharma identify and mitigate issues before they become critical.“Maintaining our ERP support with SAP meant staying in the comfort zone. Rimini Street showed that the change to third-party support is worthwhile. Now we have reduced our SAP maintenance and support costs, allowing those resources to be directed towards our current business goals. We no longer worry about our ERP support since switching to Rimini Street,” continued Guimaraes.“Modern companies in the digital era like Hypera Pharma, who want to maintain a leadership position in the market, need to optimize their IT costs and find resources to invest in innovation and business transformation,” said Edenize Maron, general manager, Latin America, Rimini Street. “The company’s heads of procurement and IT spearheaded the change to third-party support to generate cost savings that contributed to the organization’s strategic business goals, including modernizing logistics and accelerating R&D to bring products to market quicker. This demonstrates how key it is that all company leaders participate in supporting growth and innovation.”

  • [단독외신] Microsoft defends diversity efforts after feds allege discrimination
    [단독외신] Microsoft defends diversity efforts after feds allege discrimination Getty Images       Microsoft stood by its efforts to hire and promote more black staffers this week after the feds raised concerns that it was making discriminatory employment decisions. The US Department of Labor took issue with Microsoft’s June pledge to double its number of black and African American managers and other leaders by 2025, warning the tech giant in a letter that it’s forbidden as a federal contractor from discriminating against workers because of their race. The Sept. 29 letter also asked Microsoft to submit records proving it’s not making illegal race-based hiring decisions — an allegation the company said it “emphatically” denies. “We hire and promote the most qualified person. And nothing we announced in June changes that,” Dev Stahlkopf, Microsoft’s corporate vice president and general counsel, said in a blog post Tuesday. “Instead, our continued focus is to work hard to consider and develop the broadest range of qualified candidates for opportunities.” Microsoft was among several large companies that announced effort this summer to address racism and promote opportunities for black people amid massive protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd. In a June 23 message announcing Microsoft’s initiatives, CEO Satya Nadella said the company would expand leadership development programs for midlevel black employees and pair higher-ranking black staffers with mentors to help them climb the corporate ladder. But the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs indicated Microsoft’s plans may run afoul of the government’s guidelines for promoting diversity in hiring. Officials set an Oct. 29 deadline for the company to submit documents related to its efforts to help black employees. “This statement by the CEO did not reference any established goals in an affirmative action program, and appears to imply that employment action may be taken based on race,” office director Craig Leen wrote in the letter, which the feds provided to The Post. While federal contractors are supposed to set goals for recruiting minorities and women based on availability, “contractors must not engage in discriminatory practices in meeting these goals,” Leen said. Microsoft is confident that its diversity efforts comply with all federal employment laws, Stahlkopf said. The company will provide the Labor Department with the information it requested and defend its approach if needed, he said. “We look forward to helping the [Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs] understand the legality of our programs as we work towards a shared goal of promoting diversity in full conformity with federal law,” Stahlkopf said.

  • [단독외신] Eli Lilly seeks emergency use of its antibody drug for COVID-19
    [단독외신] Eli Lilly seeks emergency use of its antibody drug for COVID-19   LightRocket via Getty Images       Drugmaker Eli Lilly says it has asked the US government to allow emergency use of its experimental antibody therapy based on early results from a study that suggested the drug reduced symptoms, the amount of virus, hospitalizations and ER visits for patients with mild or moderate COVID-19. Eli Lilly announced the partial results Wednesday in a news release; they have not yet been published or reviewed by independent scientists. Its drug is similar to one that President Trump received on Friday from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals. These medicines supply concentrated versions of specific antibodies to help the immune system clear the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. They’re given as a one-time treatment through an IV. Lilly has already started making one of the two antibodies in its drug, betting that ongoing studies will prove it worthwhile. It’s not clear if the evidence will be viewed as strong enough for the Food and Drug Administration to grant emergency use authorization, as it has done for the antiviral drug remdesivir. The results are an interim look at a mid-stage study in which 112 people received the antibodies and 156 got a placebo. The amount of virus was significantly lower 11 days later in those given the drug — the main goal of the study. Virus also was lower at earlier time points as well. Symptom scores were better at three days. About 5.8 percent of patients given placebo required hospitalization or an emergency room visit versus 0.9 percent of those given the antibodies. The company said there were no serious drug-related side effects.

  • [단독외신] US workers file 840,000 new jobless claims as crisis total tops 63 million
    [단독외신] US workers file 840,000 new jobless claims as crisis total tops 63 million   Enlarge Image Three disease experts have concerns about the long-term physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies.AP       Another 840,000 American workers applied for unemployment benefits last week as the coronavirus continued to threaten the US economy, the feds said Thursday. The US Department of Labor’s latest seasonally adjusted figures brought the number of initial jobless claims filed amid the COVID-19 crisis to about 63.6 million — the equivalent of nearly 40 percent of the nation’s total workforce. Last week’s filings fell from the prior week’s revised total of 849,000 but outpaced economists’ expectations for 820,000 new claims. They also marked the sixth consecutive week with filings hovering between 800,000 and 900,000 — still far above the Great Recession’s weekly peak of 665,000. The number may have been driven down by California pausing its processing of unemployment applications for two weeks to work through a backlog of claims and implement anti-fraud technology. Continuing claims, which measure ongoing joblessness on a one-week lag, fell to about 10.9 million in the week ending Sept. 26, continuing their steady decline as more unemployed workers likely exhausted the 26 weeks of benefits that states generally provide. Experts fear the labor market’s recovery from the spring’s massive coronavirus-fueled job losses will falter if the government doesn’t provide another round of aid to the ailing economy. But President Trump pulled the plug on broad stimulus negotiations with Congress this week, raising further questions about when more help will arrive. “Newly reported job losses remain heavy, and it is still unclear at this point whether there will be enough offsetting new job creation to produce a sixth consecutive monthly increase in payrolls in October,” Wrightson ICAP experts wrote in a commentary.

  • [단독 외신] Louis Vuitton’s LVMH beefs up legal team in fight over Tiffany merger
    [단독 외신] Louis Vuitton’s LVMH beefs up legal team in fight over Tiffany merger     Shutterstock         The company behind Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior is building its legal team as it fights claims that its trying to wiggle out of a $16 billion merger with Tiffany. LVMH has hired famed French lawyer Jean-Michel Darrois to help advise it on the battle, which threatens to raise the curtain on French governmental proceedings, two sources close to the situation said. Darrois, a commander of the French Legion of Honor, has been a public supporter of French President Emmanuel Macron. In 1999, he defended French Prime Minister Laurent Fabius in a suit that obtained a dismissal and is now a counselor to French CEOs and other wealthy people. The battle between the two retailers kicked off earlier this month when LVMH said it wouldn’t be able to complete its $16.2 billion merger of the New York jeweler featured in the 1961 flick “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” by the Nov. 24 deadline. In a statement, LVMH said the French government had instructed it in a letter to wait until Jan. 6 of next year to close the deal in response to the US’s threat to impose tariffs on French goods. Tiffany has sued LVMH in Delaware to force it to meet the Nov. 24 deadline because once the merger agreement expires, LVMH can seek to lower the price or walk away. And as The Post has previously reported, people close to Tiffany have been raising questions about whether LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault, or those close to him, pressured French government officials for help in obtaining the letter as a pretext to delay the merger. “LVMH’s shifting explanations indicate bad faith in its dealings with Tiffany and are nothing more than distractions meant to hide its efforts to run out the clock and avoid fulfilling its obligations under the merger agreement,” Tiffany said in a statement on Wednesday. The company has blasted LVMH’s government request as “a non-binding advisory letter” and is expected to explore whether France can even order a company to stop a merger without first going through the European Union. Darrois is expected to help LVMH — and Arnault, the richest man in Europe — manage this aspect of the case and not the Delaware court lawsuit, sources said. ”He’s viewed in Paris as the ultimate consigliere,” the source said. LVMH, which declined to comment, has said it is doing all it can to close the deal.

  • [단독외신] Bill Gates says Pfizer has best shot at early COVID-19 vaccine
    [단독외신] Bill Gates says Pfizer has best shot at early COVID-19 vaccine           Bill Gates says Pfizer has the best chance of seeking emergency approval for a coronavirus vaccine by next month even though he thinks such an aggressive timeline is unlikely. “The only vaccine that if everything went perfectly, might seek the emergency use license by the end of October, would be Pfizer,” the billionaire tech tycoon-turned-philanthropist told CNBC in an interview published Tuesday. Pfizer’s vaccine is one of three currently going through so-called Phase 3 clinical trials in the US, crucial late-stage studies aimed at proving whether the inoculations are safe and effective. CEO Albert Bourla said this week that the New York-based drugmaker will likely know by the end of next monthwhether its experimental COVID-19 shot actually works. Gates — a Microsoft co-founder who is the world’s second-richest person with a net worth of $122.9 billion — noted that Pfizer’s shot produced “good antibody levels” in the first two stages of clinical testing. But he nevertheless doubts that any candidate will try to have a vaccine approved in the US by the end of October, according to CNBC. “I do think once you get into, say, December or January, the chances are that at least two or three will (seek approval) — if the effectiveness is there,” Gates told the network. Gates also noted that Pfizer and eight other drugmakers have pledged not to seek emergency authorization or approval for their vaccines until they’re proven safe and effective. The companies made the joint pledge last week amid reports that the Trump administration would try to fast-track the approval process. “The good news is that the leading vaccine companies today said that they won’t apply even for the emergency use license until they have a proof of efficacy,” Gates said in the CNBC interview. “We also have to go through all the safety steps so that people feel like they want to participate in taking this vaccine.” Pfizer was one of 15 life sciences companies that partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in March to speed up the development and delivery of COVID-19 vaccines, diagnostics and treatments. The foundation’s Strategic Investment Fund has also invested in Pfizer and other pharmaceutical firms involved in the vaccine race, including Merck, Sanofi and Pfizer partner BioNTech, according to its website.

  • Phase II trial results demonstrated improvement in cognition with BI 425809 in adult patients with schizophrenia
    Phase II trial results demonstrated improvement in cognition with BI 425809 in adult patients with schizophrenia        Boehringer Ingelheim today announced the results from a 12-week, placebo-controlled Phase II trial, that demonstrated BI 425809 has met its primary endpoint. The data showed improvement in cognition in stable adult patients with schizophrenia.[1] Central to many everyday tasks, impairment of cognitive function still constitutes a major burden for patients, and no pharmacological treatments are currently approved for cognitive impairment associated with schizophrenia (CIAS). These results presented at the 33rd European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Congress will advance the understanding of how deficits in transmission of signals between nerve cells may contribute to diminishing cognition in people living with schizophrenia.[2] The Gly-T1 inhibitor, BI 425809, forms a key component of Boehringer Ingelheim’s Central Nervous System (CNS) research program. The latest trial results, along with an ongoing combination Phase II study of BI 425809 and adjunctive computerized cognitive training, will help determine the direction for BI 425809 in further schizophrenia research.[3,4] Prof. W. Wolfgang Fleischhacker, Medical University Innsbruck, Austria: “The outcome of this trial is an important step forward in our understanding of cognition in schizophrenia. Cognitive impairment causes significant challenges for people in their everyday functioning. Patients with schizophrenia struggle with remembering things like birthdays, learning new tasks, concentrating, or making decisions that affect their everyday life. Advancing our understanding of how we might improve these symptoms in schizophrenia is significant for the research community and the patients and families living with this condition.” The Phase II results of BI 425809 in cognitive impairment associated with schizophrenia are being further evaluated to assess how they will support the continued research and development for the treatment of schizophrenia. “The trial results for our investigational compound BI 425809 in schizophrenia are encouraging. This is a positive advancement in our mechanistic knowledge of how excitatory neurotransmissions affect aspects of mental illness, aligning with our systematic neurobiological approach to CNS research,” adds Dr Vikas Mohan Sharma, M.D., head of medicine CNS, Retinopathies & Emerging Areas, Boehringer Ingelheim. “We recognize this is important news for people affected by schizophrenia. We are making progress in developing treatments which will not only reveal important advances in our understanding of schizophrenia but also potentially other neuropsychiatric diseases.” Cognition is a fundamental aspect of everyday life, including problem solving, memory and attention. When affected, people living with poor cognition can have a reduced mental ability to process information, remember straightforward things or perceive other people’s emotions and expressions. These functions are common to many forms of mental disorders such as schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease and depression. Finding solutions for cognitive impairment is a key area of Boehringer Ingelheim CNS research.

    Corona Chuseok 'Kim Young-ran Act' announced an upward revision of the upper limit of agricultural and fisheries products futures from 100,000 won to 200,000 won.           A major Korean holiday, Chuseok (also known as Korean Thanksgiving), is coming at the end of the month (September 30 – October 2), and for this holiday season only, the Korean government has passed a temporary increase to the gifts threshold under the Anti-Graft Act.  The temporary increase applies only to gifts comprised of agricultural/fisheries products (described below), and the limit will increase from KRW 100,000 (approx. US$85) to KRW 200,000 (approx. US$170).  The increased limit is applicable from September 10 to October 4, 2020. As you may be aware, the Anti-Graft Act generally prohibits giving (1) anything of value to Public Officials (including officers and employees of government entities, state-owned enterprises, public entities, public or private media companies, public or private schools) when related to the Public Official’s duties, and (2) any benefit exceeding KRW 1 million per instance or KRW 3 million in aggregate per fiscal year when not related to the Public Official’s duties.   The Anti-Graft Act provides several exceptions, however, including for meals and gifts provided to facilitate the relationship or as a matter of courtesy (but not when there is a “directly pending matter”).  The meals limit is KRW 30,000 and the gifts limit is KRW 50,000, with a higher limit of KRW 100,000 for gifts comprised of at least 50% agricultural or fisheries products.  “Agricultural or fisheries products” are defined by statute and include, for example, boxes of fruit, meat, or fish, which are common holiday gifts; however, they do not include, for example, salt or certain processed foods. To address the difficulties within the agricultural and fisheries industries in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC; government entity overseeing the Anti-Graft Act) proposed a temporary increase to the limit for gifts comprised of agricultural and fisheries products, from KRW 100,000 to KRW 200,000.  It passed the State Council’s review on September 10, 2020, and will apply until October 4, 2020.

  • 속보[단독외신] Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian official, citing Israel-UAE peace deal
    [단독외신] Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian official, citing Israel-UAE peace deal   Nomination was submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament     President Trump: Israel and the UAE have agreed to finalize a historic peace agreement President Trump announces a ‘historic peace agreement’ between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, saying they agreed to ‘full normalization of relations.’   Just weeks after helping to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), President Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, lauded Trump for his efforts toward resolving protracted conflicts worldwide. “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of Parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told Fox News in an exclusive interview. TRUMP ANNOUNCES PEACE AGREEMENT BETWEEN ISRAEL, UAE Tybring-Gjedde, in his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, said the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between Israel and the UAE. “As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,” he wrote. Also cited in the letter was the president’s “key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties and … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea.” Tybring-Gjedde, further, praised Trump for withdrawing a large number of troops from the Middle East. “Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter,” he wrote. This is not Trump’s first such nomination, as Tybring-Gjedde submitted one along with another Norwegian official in 2018 following the U.S. president’s Singapore summit with Kim Jong Un. Japan’s prime minister reportedly did the same. Trump did not win. Tybring-Gjedde, a member of a conservative-leaning populist party in Norway, told Fox News that his latest nomination is not about trying to curry favor with the U.S. president. KUSHNER TOUTS PEACE AGREEMENT “I’m not a big Trump supporter,” he said. “The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts – not on the way he behaves sometimes. The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.” The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to then-President Barack Obama for what the Nobel Committee called his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." That decision made just nine months into Obama’s first term was met with criticism in the U.S. – including from Donald Trump, then a private citizen. Lech Walesa, Poland’s former president and a 1983 Nobel laureate, also said at the time it was too early to bestow the award on Obama -- just 263 days after taking office: “Too fast. For the time being Obama’s just making proposals. But sometimes the Nobel Committee awards the prize to encourage responsible action.” Even Obama was taken aback, saying at the time he was “surprised and humbled” by the Nobel Committee’s decision. “To be honest,” he said, “I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who have been honored by this prize, men and women who’ve inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.” Besides Obama, three other U.S. presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize: President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 for “having negotiated peace in the Russo-Japanese war”; President Woodrow Wilson in 1920 for being the “leading architect of the League of Nations”; and President Jimmy Carter in 2002 for “his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts.”
