Surprise surprise, another weight loss drug rejected

Arena Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s obesity drug lorcaserin was rejected by the FDA due to lack of evidence of effectiveness and worries concerning cancer risk.

Summer ends and a new chapter begins

Autumn is here, colorful and spectacular as always. In one way I am sad summer is gone, a new year has to go by before I see her again, but in another way autumn means the beginning of new and wonderful things. Today I added the last few touches to the brochures, signs, business cards […]

Norwegian nature- Preikestolen / Preachers Pulpit/ Pulpit Rock

On the Sunday last week the trio, me, Daniel and mum, went trekking up in the Norwegian mountains. If you haven’t seen Norwegian nature then you have missed out.
