For example, insulin, a necessity for survival for Type 1 diabetes patients, has increased in price quadruple times. With this, consumers are left with hard choices—to buy or not to buy? The Rise of Prescription Drug Costs Health Affairs published a study in 2019 that examined the price list of brand-name and generic drugs. The data was from 2005 to 2016 based on a large pharmacy database. The study showed that newly developed drugs are to blame for most of the higher costs. However, the older brand-name drugs account for the largest price increase. Researchers found out that older brand-name drugs have... Read more →

Cars from the 1950s and Early 1960s with the Added Continental Kit

(CNB News)(January 25, 2021)--Back in the day when you could tell the make of a car just by looking at it, there was a period when the so-called Continental kit accessory became a customizing aftermarket appearance that gave the vehicles that distinct flair. This external spare wheel mount was seen during the 1950s and early 1960s. It enhanced the “long and low” look that was so popular at the time. Continental kits and Imperial trunk bumps made a brief reappearance in the 1980s “pimpmobiles,” along with faux Rolls Royce Grilles, chrome wire wheels, and padded fabric top treatments. Contemporary examples of Continental kits are sometimes found on customized automobiles or fully-accessorized restorations from that era. It has become an iconic, retro accessory that typifies the...

Larry King R.I.P.

by Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor January 23, 2021 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the death of Larry King: Larry King was perhaps the greatest interviewer of all time.

Larry asked a question and the guest answered. The next question was based on what the guest said. It was a conversation. He would listen attentively to what was said and would then dig deeper. And so on. Sounds fairly simple. But it isn't. Larry's gift was to make his guests feel relaxed, getting them to open up about matters... Read more →

CNB BUSINESS: Target for new COVID scam: Small business owners

by Lesley Fair Attorney, Division of Consumer and Business Education, FTC There’s a new coronavirus-related scam making the rounds, but this time the crooks are targeting small businesses.

You got an email or phone call out of the blue that claims to be from the IRS, the Social Security Administration, or – in this case – the Small Business Administration.

CNB MEDICAL: No more needles?

Newswise — Blood draws are no fun. They hurt. Veins can burst, or even roll — like they’re trying to avoid the needle, too. Oftentimes, doctors use blood samples to check for biomarkers of disease: antibodies that signal a viral or bacterial infection, such as SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, or cytokines indicative of inflammation seen in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and sepsis. These biomarkers aren’t just in blood, though. They can also be found in the dense liquid medium that surrounds our cells, but in a low abundance that makes it difficult to be detected. Until now. Engineers at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis have developed a microneedle patch that can be applied to the skin,... Read more →
