"While biotech investors and entrepreneurs turned to rare diseases — and the potential for selling drugs targeting those diseases at a high cost — novel treatments in a number of more-prevalent disease areas went wanting."

"[…] looking at the five-year period up to 2008 and the subsequent five years ending in 2013, […] R&D funding for novel diabetes drugs fell 81 percent between the two five-year periods, psychiatric drug funding dropped 56 percent, cash for gastrointestinal therapies tumbled 49 percent, respiratory drug funding shrank 41 percent and cardiovascular drug dollars slid 32 percent lower."

"At the same time, money raised by companies working on new types of previously approved pain drugs increased three-fold."

"Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels… his was the most… human."

This clip is a fitting tribute, then for Spock and now for the man who played him.

An amazing dark and gritty take on the Power Rangers. Well done with great performances by Katee Sackhoff and James Van Der Beek.

(This is the original NSFW version of the short film)
