FDA Approves New Generic Version Of The EpiPen For Allergic Reactions

The Food and Drug Administration has approved the first identical alternative to the EpiPen, which is widely used to save children and adults suffering from dangerous allergic reactions. The FDA Thursday authorized Teva Pharmaceuticals USA to sell generic versions of the EpiPen and EpiPen Jr for adults and children who weigh more than 33 pounds. The devices enable people to automatically inject the hormone epinephrine into the thigh when experiencing potentially life-threatening allergic reactions to bee stings, peanuts, drugs or other substances. The EpiPen, which is made by Mylan , has sparked controversy because of its price. It can cost as much as $600 for a package of two pens, and the pens have to be replaced periodically. There have also been periodic shortages of the devices reported around the country. The FDA says the approval of the new products should help with both cost and availability. "Today's approval of the first generic version of the most-widely prescribed

Muslim Woman Says She Refused Handshake And Then Suffered Discrimination

A Swedish labor court has ruled that a translation company must pay a Muslim woman 40,000 kronor, or around $4,500, in discrimination compensation, after she said her job interview was shut down upon her explaining she would not shake a male worker's hand for religious reasons. Farah Alhajeh said she placed her hand over her heart instead of extending it to a male boss at the Semantix offices in her hometown of Uppsala. The 24-year-old told the New York Times that she explained to him she avoided physical contact because of her Muslim faith. Alhajeh had been hoping to land a job as an interpreter with the company after the May 2016 interview. Instead, she said she was escorted to the elevator, the interview abruptly over. "As soon as I got to the elevator, I cried," she told Swedish news channel SVT . "It had never happened to me before." For its part, Semantix argued that it is a defender of gender equality and could not hire somebody who would themselves discriminate based on the

Bo Burnham Knows Eighth Grade Was Awkward For You, Too

Bo Burnham isnt afraid of awkwardness. In fact, he’s built a career on it. The 27-year-old comedian and musician achieved accidental fame on YouTube over a decade ago. At 18, he became the youngest comic to have his own special on Comedy Central. Through his self-deprecating style, Burnham explores and parodies subjects like love, anxiety, and the internet. So it’s no surprise that his latest project, a full-length feature film, deals with those subjects, too. But this time, he’s telling it from a 13-year-old girls perspective. Burnham is the writer and director of “Eighth Grade.” We spoke to him about why he made the film, and what he hopes audiences (of all ages) will take away from it. I didn’t set out to make a movie about eighth grade or talk about my own eighth grade experience. I really just wanted to talk about how I was feeling at the time I was writing it. I was sort of coming to terms with the fact that I had anxiety and wanted to talk about that and wanted to talk about the

The Future Of For-Profit Colleges

Higher education facilities like the University of Phoenix and Capella Universities have been heavily scrutinized by journalists and the federal government alike. Thats because they are for-profit colleges. But under Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, regulations around them may change. On Friday, DeVos administration moved to eliminate a rule that required for-profit college to demonstrate that enrolled students can be gainfully employed. From The New York Times : [The rule] sought to hold for-profit and career college programs accountable for graduating students with poor job prospects and overwhelming debt by revoking federal funding and access to financial aid. After a 30-day comment period, the rule is expected to be eliminated July 1, 2019. Instead Ms. DeVos would provide students with more data about all of the nation’s higher education institutions — not just career and for-profit college programs — including debt, expected earnings after graduation, completion rates, program

Lies My Teacher Told Me

“The American Journey” is a classroom staple. The textbook has been described as a superb, readable presentation of American history, from pre-exploration to the present. It is read by millions who are often tested on its contents every year. But sociologist James Loewen discovered that the 2015 edition of the book contained passages like this one, about The Civil War. The South Secedes Lincoln and the Republicans had promised not to disturb slavery where it already existed. Nevertheless, many people in the South mistrusted the party, fearing that the Republican government would not protect Southern rights and liberties. On December 20, 1860, the South’s long-standing threat to leave the Union became a reality when South Carolina held a special convention and voted to secede. This passage has been taken by some to suggest that slavery was not the reason why the South seceded from the North. Loewen argues that this phrasing is dangerous. It glosses over an ugly historical precedent of
