Ivanka Trump ’s Business Ties in China Are More Secret Than Ever
(SHANGHAI) — It is no secret that the bulk of Ivanka Trump’s merchandise comes from China. But just which Chinese companies manufacture and export her handbags, shoes and clothes is more secret than ever, an Associated Press investigation has found. In the months since she took her White House role, public information about the companies importing Ivanka Trump goods to the U.S. has become harder to find. Information that once routinely appeared in private trade tracking data has vanished, leaving the identities of companies involved in 90% of shipments unknown. Even less is known about her manufacturers. Trump&...

Safety monitoring oversight adds value to your study
The objectives and procedures may vary depending on the role of the safety monitoring group or depending on the risks involved in the study. A DSMB will review cumulative safety data, and possibly effectiveness data as well, and make recommendations to the sponsor regarding whether it feels the study should continue, continue with modifications, or be terminated. The CEC instead reviews individual qualifying adverse events and provides adjudications to the sponsor, often to assess relatedness to the investigational product and/or study procedure. The overall goal of a safety monitoring group is always the same: addition...

The Associated Press was the only media outlet in attendance. “I believe I did the best I could in my circumstances to make an ethical decision,” she told the crowd when asked by the moderator if she was a traitor.

To Create Gender Equality, Companies Must Open Up About Failure
I’m a firm believer that companies with global scale have an unparalleled opportunity to affect real, positive change on major issues, if we operate with a purpose that extends beyond profit.

Today, there’s a hand-in-glove relationship between building a business that does good and building a good business. To have a purpose-driven business, you have to code that purpose into its cultural DNA. Consider gender balanc...

9 Myths About Weight Loss
Losing weight is no easy task, and myths persist about how to do it—which end up making it even harder.

The National Weight Control Registry began keeping track in 1994 of people who lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for a year or longer. Today, more than 10,000 Americans are part of the registry—with an average weight loss of 66 pounds, kept...

No change to alcohol guidelines for pregnancy
Conclusion The results of this review found that low-to-moderate alcohol consumption during pregnancy was linked with a slightly increased risk of having a baby small for gestational age. However, there was no evidence for any other links, including any difference in the average birth weight of babies born to drinkers and non-drinkers. There are some important limitations of the research to note: • The evidence still doesn't prove that drinking directly increases the risk of a baby born small for gestational age.
