The call had been placed by Eckard after she left the company.Getnick & Getnick, Eckard’s legal representatives, said Eckard complained multiple times that drugs made at GSK’s Cidra plant were being produced in a non-sterile environment, that the water system at the factory was contaminated and that medications were being made incorrectly. After failed attempts to get GSK to remedy the situation, Eckard reported the violations to the FDA in August 2003.The factory in Cidra, which had at one time been the largest in GSK, was closed in 2009. GSK said the company worked to remedy problems at the Cidra plant, and also added that no additional warning from the FDA had been received since 2002.GSK agreed to pay $750m to settle the case. Eckard received her payment under the False Claims Act.

Fed stakes all on $600bn QE2

In its second-round of quantitative easing, dubbed QE2, which comes just two years after the central bank first tried to kick-start the economy, the Fed will buy $75bn of longer-term Treasury securities each month for the next eight months, while leaving interest rates at their current record low for an “extended period”. The $600bn injected into the economy will be topped up by around $250bn of re-invested assets, mainly mortgage-backed securities, from the first tranche of quantitative easing. The Fed said it hoped that its landmark decision, indicating that quantitative easing has become a regular policy tool, rather than an emergency-only instrument, would “promote a stronger pace of economic recovery.” It also left open the possibility that the programme could be extended further in future, saying that it would “regularly review” the pace and scale of its asset-buying. The widely-anticipated buying-spree, which was smaller than some investors had hoped for, saw bond yields rise but the dollar fall as investors feared the policy could see inflation rise and the greenback subsequently devalued. The Dow Jones Industrial Average edged up 0.24 per cent, to close at 11,215.13, while the S&P gained 0.37 per cent to 1,197.96. In the bond market, 30-year Treasuries saw yields jump 15 basis points to more than 4.07 per cent. Investors had been buying 30-year bonds in anticipation that the Fed would buy the longest-dated bonds. But the Fed said that only four per cent of its purchases would be in the 17 to 30-year range, with most of its buying in the five to six-year range. The dollar reacted similarly, pushing to new lows against the euro, which jumped to a 10-month high of $1.4179. Capital Economics economist Paul Dales said the lacklustre market reaction indicated that the scale of asst-buying was too small to boost the US economy, where unemployment remains close to 10 per cent, out of its malaise, and warned it could take at least two years for a genuine pick-up in the pace of recovery.“This is an untested tool. The Fed can’t be seen not to do anything, but is so scared of inflation that it is taking little baby steps rather than significant ones,” he said.

But a Rolls-Royce spokesman said the company would provide another update today.EASA said early findings showed that an oil fire in part of the engine might be to blame. last_img read more

BA shares hit as Heathrow chaos drags on

first_imgMonday 20 December 2010 9:11 pm Show Comments ▼ SHARES in British Airways plummeted yesterday thanks to the major disruption to its flights from Heathrow. The firm, which is Heathrow’s biggest operator, cancelled 70 of its 130 flights out of the airport yesterday, leaving thousands stranded.BA is currently losing up to £10m a day, according to analyst estimates – close to the losses suffered when all flights were grounded during the Icelandic volcanic eruption in April. “We have BA down to deliver revenues of around £27m a day in this quarter so assuming some 70 per cent of that is fixed cost it is probably losing about £8m a day of profit,” said Davy Stockbrokers analyst Stephen Furlong, adding that the majority of BA’s profit comes from its Heathrow operations.“It depends on the percentage of longhaul flights BA have operated but I think they are probably losing around £10m a day,” said Oddo Securities analyst Yan Derocles.A spokesperson for the airline said it was too early to calculate the costs. “Our priority is to fly as many customers as we can before Christmas,” he said.

Santander customer rating: from hero to zero

first_img KCS-content whatsapp AS Stephen Hester contemplates accepting his bonus we’ve looked at how successfully he has improved consumer perceptions of his bank in 2010. Last January RBS was poorly perceived and was clearly the last of the big five banks on every BrandIndex indicator. Take the key measure of recommendation; at -14.9 RBS was 13.3 points worse than the industry average. Its general impression score (-33.7) was 27.1 points below average. The year has seen RBS move closer to the industry norm on all elements but still remain in negative territory – recommendation -8.2 from -13.3, impression -16.5 from -27.1. Its improvement has been partially down to a slow rise in its ratings and partially due to a collapse in views of Santander. The Spanish giant was competing with HSBC as the best perceived bank last January but opinion nose-dived throughout 2010 – impression down from +0.9 to -13.1, recommendation from +2.9 to -12.9 leaving it in 4th or 5th place across all measures. As the charts show it is on recommendation that Santander has taken the biggest hit compared to its competitors, suggesting that it is the experience of customers leading the general image decline rather than bad press. TellYouGov confirms what is going wrong, with respondents spontaneously emailing, tweeting or using the TellYouGov website or app to express an opinion on Santander. Comments such as “Poor service – again!” proliferate with their volume making it the only bank that consistently appears on our volume leaderboard. So for RBS, the roots of recovery are in place but there is some way to go. For Santander, public opinion is low and falling. Customer service needs improving to reverse this decline.Stephan Shakespeare is chief executive of YouGov Tags: NULL Santander customer rating: from hero to zero More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com Sharecenter_img Tuesday 11 January 2011 7:29 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldlast_img read more
