Prof. AVORN: The purpose of warning letters is not just to deal with that one incident, but to let companies know that the FDA is on the case and the FDA is being vigilant. And when those letters don’t get out, the message does get out, FDA is not going to be as effective or alert in dealing with the next thing that comes up..
San Antonio, Texas checking in. San Antonio has a weird little niche as a tourism city in this state. We cater to it with two big name amusement parks Six Flags (Fiesta) and SeaWorld as well as other family friendly attractions like the RiverWalk and historical Missions.
Dunkin’ double cups are unofficial, sorta New Englandy, somewhat regulated beverage containers that are, quite literally, a cup within a cup: The plastic iced drink cup is fitted with a hot drink appropriate foam cup that sometimes comes free of charge, and other times costs a few cents. (Franchise owners are given the option to charge.) The foam acts as a makeshift sleeve that keeps the cup’s exterior chill away from already cold hands. It also has the benefit of acting as a thermal insulator kind of like an iced coffee koozie.
Waxman wrote, and Congress passed, legislation to prohibit using federal money to drill the needed tunnels.That puts the veteran congressman once again in a pivotal position. By repealing the law, Waxman could help resurrect the dream of an underground transit line to the beach, through a part of town that arguably needs public transit the most.Waxman has asked the panel to produce a written report on its findings.”If the report confirms what we’ve been hearing, I will introduce a proposal to rescind the restriction,” Waxman said from Washington.If Waxman does agree to rescind the law, it would mark a milestone for the subway project but it would be only a first step toward getting it built.No funding, federal or otherwise, is earmarked for such a project, and many other regional transit needs would compete with a Red Line extension. Moreover, the per mile price for subway construction has skyrocketed in the last 20 years, to between $300 million and $350 million.Still, backers see Waxman’s move as key.”I would hope the congressman would move in that direction,” said Ray Remy, a longtime Los Angeles County transit official and former president of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce who served for eight years in Mayor Tom Bradley’s administrations.
