Wow, you are an architect?

Or a builder defending your job security? Every addition we did was beautiful and still standing after years (5-25). But I guess success shouldn't be believed. If you like AutoDesk you're probably an AutoCAD user too which is way down on the list when it comes to engineering software. Have you ever heard of consultants? You really think software companies let their programmers do all the civil engineering in a program? Get a clue. And I suppose Sony which makes video games shouldn't be trusted to make cameras or televisions? And Johnson and Johnson can only make baby powder and band-aids, not advanced medical devices

    I am interested in learning more about the approval process for drugs and medical devices in Canada vs the USA. New and emerging companies would benefit from this.

    • In Canada, everything has to go through a rigorous testing process before it can be released to the public, but you can get generic versions of drugs much sooner than in the USA; I think it s twenty years after proprietary version is released.

    Jul 02, 2013 by Carlos | Posted in Current Events

    On average, people live about 5years longer in Japan than people in the USA. They spend half of what the USA spends on healthcare. Is it the american culture? Is it poor doctors? I think it is a combination of poor doctors and the american culture. I have visited too many doctors who have recommended expensive, unnecessary medications and medical devices. In the USA, eating out is not equated with eating healthy.
