Mourinho twice had spells as Chelsea manager which ended in acrimonious circumstances
Athletes aiming to compete at this year's Tokyo Games without getting vaccinated against the coronavirus will face very tough conditions, the head of France's Olympic Committee (CNOSF) was quoted as saying. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach has said that although participants will be encouraged to get vaccinated, it will not be mandatory. CNOSF President Denis Masseglia said that, while he understood that Olympic competitors could not jump the vaccine queue, unvaccinated athletes would find things "extremely difficult" in Tokyo.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump opened an office in Florida on Monday to continue his administration's agenda and handle his duties as a former president. In a statement, the office said: "The Office will be responsible for managing President Trump's correspondence, public statements, appearances, and official activities to advance the interests of the United States and to carry on the agenda of the Trump Administration through advocacy, organizing, and public activism." Trump's announcement came the same day the U.S. House of Representatives delivered his second impeachment charge to the Senate for inciting insurrection at the Capitol earlier this month. The Senate trial is expected to start on Feb. 9. In farewell remarks last week, Trump told his supporters that he would return: "We love you. We will be back in some form." He hasn't been seen publicly since that address and flight to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. The Wall Street Journal reported that before leaving office, Trump talked with associates about forming his own political party called the 'Patriot Party.'
Groupe Pierre & Vacances-Center Parcs : Communiqué du 26 janvier 2021
St. Louis, MO, Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RadioMedix Inc. and its commercial partner Curium announced today that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has granted Detectnet a permanent Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code – A9592 – effective April 1, 2021. The descriptor for this product specific A code will be: Copper Cu-64, dotatate, diagnostic, 1 millicurie. Beginning on April 1, 2021, this code will be available to bill claims for Medicare patients in non-hospital imaging centers and for private insurance patients in all imaging facilities. This information follows the recent news that Detectnet was granted Transitional Pass-Through Status by CMS (C9068) effective January 1, 2021. C9068 is used to bill Detectnet for Medicare patients seen in the hospital outpatient department. “Once in effect, having both a permanent HCPCS code and Transitional Pass-Through Status will simplify the reimbursement process for all imaging centers that desire to use Detectnet,” said Curium CEO, North America, Dan Brague. “We remain focused on helping physicians and patients in the neuroendocrine community and anticipate the simplified reimbursement process may increase access to the product. We would like to thank CMS for their timely release of both codes, especially in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic.” “The response to Detectnet from the neuroendocrine community is outstanding,” said Ebrahim Delpassand, MD, CEO of RadioMedix. “The Phase III results demonstrate the clinical sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of Detectnet. Further, the 12.7 hour half-life of Detectnet enables it to be produced centrally and shipped to sites throughout the U.S. The HCPCS code and Transitional Pass-Through Status should now provide access to patients nationwide.” About Detectnet INDICATIONS Detectnet is indicated for use with positron emission tomography (PET) for localization of somatostatin receptor positive neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in adult patients. IMPORTANT RISK INFORMATION WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS Radiation Risk Diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals, including Detectnet, contribute to a patient’s overall long-term cumulative radiation exposure. Long-term cumulative radiation exposure is associated with an increased risk of cancer. Ensure safe handling and preparation procedures to protect patients and health care workers from unintentional radiation exposure. Advise patients to hydrate before and after administration and to void frequently after administration. Risk for Image Misinterpretation The uptake of copper Cu 64 dotatate reflects the level of somatostatin receptor density in NETs, however, uptake can also be seen in a variety of other tumors that also express somatostatin receptors. Increased uptake might also be seen in other non-cancerous pathologic conditions that express somatostatin receptors including thyroid disease or in subacute inflammation, or might occur as a normal physiologic variant (e.g. uncinate process of the pancreas). A negative scan after the administration of Detectnet in patients who do not have a history of NET disease does not rule out disease. ADVERSE REACTIONS In clinical trials, adverse reactions occurred at a rate of < 2% and included nausea, vomiting and flushing. In published trials nausea immediately after injection was observed. DRUG INTERACTIONS Somatostatin Analogs Non-radioactive somatostatin analogs and copper Cu 64 dotatate competitively bind to somatostatin receptors (SSTR2). Image patients just prior to dosing with somatostatin analogs. For patients on long-acting somatostatin analogs, a wash-out period of 28 days is recommended prior to imaging. For patients on short-acting somatostatin analogs, a washout period of 2 days is recommended prior to imaging. USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS Pregnancy All radiopharmaceuticals, including Detectnet, have the potential to cause fetal harm depending on the fetal stage of development and the magnitude of the radiation dose. Advise a pregnant woman of the potential risks of fetal exposure to radiation from administration of Detectnet. Lactation Advise a lactating woman to interrupt breastfeeding for 12 hours after Detectnet administration in order to minimize radiation exposure to a breastfed infant. Pediatric use The safety and effectiveness of Detectnet have not been established in pediatric patients. Geriatric use In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy. OVERDOSAGE In the event of a radiation overdose, the absorbed dose to the patient should be reduced where possible by increasing the elimination of the radionuclide from the body by reinforced hydration and frequent bladder voiding. A diuretic might also be considered. Please see Full prescribing information by clicking here.

About Neuroendocrine Tumors Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of rare neoplasms that originate from neuroendocrine cells. These neoplasms occur mostly in the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas and liver, but can also occur in other tissues including lung, thymus and other uncommon sites such as cervix, heart and prostate. Most NETs strongly express somatostatin receptors (SSTRs). CD0119 1220 CONTACT: Sandy Borgschulte Curium 314-954-6637 email@example.com Janet Ryan Ryan PR 314-614-7408 firstname.lastname@example.org
The operational earnings, excluding items affecting comparability, for the fourth quarter 2020 are expected to amount to about SEK 575 M, compared with SEK 415 M for the fourth quarter 2019. The profit for the fourth quarter, including restructuring costs of about SEK 110 M, is expected to amount to about SEK 440 M, compared with SEK 370 M for the fourth quarter 2019. The restructuring costs of about SEK 110 M are primarily attributable to Volvo Cars’ termination of Bilia’s dealer agreements and closure of three of totally seven facilities in Germany. The costs related to Volvo Cars’ termination of the dealer agreements constitutes an initial assessment of the costs to carry out a restructuring of the operation. Discussions with Volvo Cars concerning meaning and extent of the terminations are in an initial stage, why it is currently not possible to estimate final financial impact for Bilia.

The EU threatened to block exports of the Belgian-made Pfizer jabs as part of a row with the UK-based AstraZeneca (AZ). Brussels decided to impose tighter controls on exports after reacting with anger to the news that AZ will deliver 50 million fewer doses to the EU than it had expected. Ministers now fear that deliveries of the Pfizer jabs will, at best, be delayed by extra paperwork - and that the EU could try to stop doses being sent to non-EU countries after saying it would "take any action required to protect its citizens". Brussels Correspondent James Crisp says that the EU is seeking retribution in the vaccine blame game. Use our postcode tool to find out how many Covid vaccinations have been given in your area. Meanwhile, Boris Johnson is today expected to approve plans to force some travellers arriving in the UK to quarantine in hotels. The Cabinet coronavirus operations committee meets later to finalise an Australian-style hotel system that will cost up to £1,500 for 10 days' self-isolating, with meals served in rooms and security guard supervision. Home Affairs Editor Charles Hymas explains that holidays abroad could be off until 2022 if it applies to all passengers. Various options are said to be on the table, but Whitehall sources suggested ministers may opt for a more limited system. Matt lightens the mood with today's cartoon. Boris Johnson aims to charm Scots and save Union The Prime Minister is to launch a charm offensive in Scotland later this week as part of his plan to save the Union.
