A new ‘farming’ season has just started. Well crafted public relationship exercise, with all the usual ingredients, from sweet words to celebrities and nationality.
Endorsement from captured ‘bodies’ does little to support informed opinion, – when a ‘label’ and a ‘flag’ is used to hide the actual owners. 2011/12 Amagen acquires deCODE for $415 million (from Chapter 11 Furniture Sales?).
The guardians of public interest also forgot to mention, that, in 2012 Amgen paid $762 million after pleading guilty to criminal charges of improper promotion and sale of misbranded drugs.
in a minuscule country we have little use for revolving doors, classmates and bridge partners suffice.
And who are the masters of disguise? – The Snakes in Suits. Those parading under the Mask of Sanity. Their Character traits are well known.- But how do we protect our self?
Is this inability to learn and tendency to line up to be pruned a subject worthy of a paired study with e.g. Nulandistan?
By the way, there is no need for amateur postmen, except of course to foster “aggressive narcissism”.
The Five Ws:
- Who? deCODE genetics is a subsidiary of Amgen
- What? Collection of 100,000 ‘missing’ DNA samples and Signed Open-ended Agreements
- Where? Iceland
- When? Now and for future use
- Why? .– …. .- – .—-. … / – …. . / …. ..- .-. .-. -.– ..–..

At long last, – a response to the blitzkrieg:
Contrary to practices in a mature democratic society (is)
Scientific rationality, uncertainty and the governance of human genetics
We have TWO (2) News media actually doing journalism (my bad):
Abused the rights of thousands of Icelanders (.is)
Same 100,000 they are after now? – Grounds for Class action lawsuit?
kjarninn (.pdf .is) pointed to conflicting information about what Amgen actually bought, and NextCODE (a spin-out), also tells a different story. – More on the Synonym.
