The Calla Lily The calla lily has been a personal favorite of gardeners and florists for many years. Originally from Africa, the calla lily has endured many different name changes. Specifically, the flower draws its origins from the tropical area from South Africa to Malawi. In the United States, the calla lily is grown all over. However, the flower is grown as an annual up north because of the threat of frost. From a nomenclature perspective, the calla lily is a bit of a paradox as it is neither a calla nor a lily. Although grown for many generations prior, Swedish botanist, Carolus Linnaeus took credit for the discovery and, incorrectly, classified the plant to be a calla lily; advances in botanical sciences would later create a more stringent requirement for the calla genus, which would, unfortunately, leave the calla lily behind. The calla lily is a member of the Zantedeschia genus, aptly named after famed botanist Giovanni Zantedeschi. Eventually, the calla lily emigrated from southern Africa and made its way to Europe. The earliest report of a calla lily in Europe was a painting of the Royal Garden in Paris dated 1664. Whilst in Europe, the calla lily became somewhat of a fan favorite as it was very easy to grow and could be cultivated to bloom year round in Southern Europe. Additionally, the flower can survive a long time after being cut, providing for long-lasting arrangements. With the demise of monarchies across Europe, the calla lily has been relegated to serving as themes for American weddings and, strangely enough, funerals. Wedding planners like the shape of the flower and the simple elegance that a bouquet can provide. Additionally, white is a symbol a purity, which explains why, traditionally, brides wear white dresses with white flowers. Alternatively, the funeral industry likes the white…...

...Lily I need to do something. I need somebody’s help. This situation confuses, baffles, and even worries me. I have never seen this dog before. I quickly run to my mom to assess the situation. It feels hard to believe that eleven years flew by since the first day that I saw my little fluffy bundle of joy. My little poodle attained the name of Lily. I never imagined I would become as close to Lily as I did. One day, she casually walked into my backyard. I did not have a clue what to do, but eventually I carefully approached her. She was the most polite dog I have ever met. We played all day, and soon became best friends. But, of course we had to find her rightful owners. In a short time, we found the owners and returned her home. However, Lily never ceased to miss a day of showing up at my door. Before long, the owners offered us to keep her. Lily apparently did not want to be with these owners. Obviously we accepted this offer, and this became the happiest day of my life. On the other hand, I knew that good things come to an end, and situations do not end the way we would like. Overcoming a loss is extremely difficult, but I realized that experiencing a death has made me a stronger person and who I am today. Now eleven years have past since the day Lily became mine, and I can still remember that day like it happened yesterday. Lily was an amazing dog and I would not have traded her for anything. I loved her will all of my heart. Unfortunately, during the...

...OPERATIONS GEOMETRIQUES 2D 1 Les opérations géométriques ont pour but de modifier la position des informations contenues dans l'image sans modifier le niveau de gris. Ces opérations peuvent s'appliquer à la totalité des points d'une image (les pixels), un objet particulier de l'image, voire à certains points spécifiques (recalage de points caractéristiques). Fig 1 - Recalage géométrique d'une image Ces opérations présentent un intérêt dans de nombreuses applications: - correction des distorsions géométriques liées au matériel optique. La distorsion la plus fréquente est celle introduite par l'objectif lui-même (effet de "tonneau" ou de "barillet"). - correction de la perspective d'une scène 3D projetée sur un capteur 2D. Pour envisager des mesures précises des objets présents dans la scène, il peut être utile de restituer une image corrigée par une opération géométrique adaptée. - compensation du mouvement de la caméra pour un système embarqué pour ramener l'image dans un repère de représentation fixe. - mise en correspondance d'images prises dans des conditions différentes (prises de vue satellitaires, radiographie, tomographie).

...Eli Lilly in India : Rethinking the Joint Venture Strategy Pharmaceutical companies spend more than 20% of their sales on research and development (R &D). Patents for product ( for 20 years) and process were essential means by which a firm protected its proprietary knowledge and they could command higher prices for their products. Many multinational pharmaceutical firm subsidiaries in India imported drugs from their country of origin and made a huge profit. However in 1970¶s, the patents for all pharmaceutical and agricultural products were abolished and process patents permitted for 5 to 7 years. The Drug Price Control Order (DPCO) instituted price controls by government, multinationals market share dropped from 80% in 1970 to 35% in mid 1990s so they were forced to exit from India due to lack of patent protection in India. In November 1984 Dr. Manmohan Singh , the finance minister encouraged foreign direct investment and increased the maximum limit of foreign ownership from 40% to 51%. Colonel Eli Lilly founded Eli Lilly and Company in 1876. It was a world leader in injectable antibiotics and in supplying insulin. Ranbaxy in early 1990¶s was India¶s largest manufacturer of bulk drugs and generic drugs. Ranbaxy approached Lilly to supply certain active ingredients or sourcing of intermediate products to Lilly in order to provide low cost sources of intermediate pharmaceutical ingredients. Success of Joint Venture i) Lilly used Ranbaxy¶s help for getting government approvals...

...Eli Lilly case questions 1) Did Eli Lilly pursue the right strategy to enter the Indian market? It was a right strategy for Eli Lilly that started a joint venture with Ranbaxy to enter the Indian market. First of all, Ranbaxy was the second largest pharmaceutical company that manufactures bulk drugs and generic drugs in India, with a domestic market share of 15 per cent. It had established broad distribution network, and it was the second largest exporter of all products in India. Ranbaxy’s capital costs were 50 per cent to 75 per cent lower than those of comparable U.S. plants. Second, the timing was perfect for Eli Lilly to enter the Indian market. During 1970s, the Patents Act 1970 and the Drug Price Control Order (DPCO) was issued. And India was opening its drug market. Third, there was possibility to conduct cheap clinical trials in India. 2) Considering the evolution of the JV, evaluate the challenges that JV leaders faced in each phase. Andrew Mascarenhas was the first managing director of the joint venture. He created the JV’s team, positioned the JV in the market, set its operations developing the marketing strategy. Challenges he faced were hiring sales force and recruiting doctors and financial staff. He trained them on the company's value, philosophy and code ethical conduct. The JV reached break-even and was becoming profitable at the end of his managing time. Chris Shaw built systems and processes to bring stability to the fast growing organization...

Lilies of the Field

...Lilies of The Field is a book written by William Barrett. Mr. Ralph Nelson, a producer, was introduced to this book by his agent Fred Ingles. Ralph Nelson was so intrigued by this story that he wanted to put it on film. Finally after much negotiation it was brought to the silver screen in 1963 by Mr. Ralph Nelson with a very low budget. With determination and tenacity Mr. Nelson achieved his dream. The entire film was shot in fourteen days! Incredibly, the picture was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Additionally, Lilies of the Field achieved motion picture history as Sidney Poitier was awarded the Best Actor Oscar, marking the first time in history an Academy Award was awarded to a black man. Choosing this movie for an analysis in negotiation was simple. Throughout the movie, the principal characters negotiated continuously. Lilies of the Field principle premise seemed to be partly based on the foundation of the bible scripture, Matthew 6:28-31 New International Version (NIV) 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?

Three-Inch Golden Lilies

...“Three-Inch Golden Lilies”- Concubine to a Warlord General (1909-1933) This story talked about the experiences of the narrator’s great-grandparent and grandparent’s past. The story began by bringing up facts about the setting, which is in a town called Yixian. The narrator’s great-grandfather named Yang Ru-shan, who was born in 1894, married a woman named “Number Two Girl” because she was the second daughter. He was only fourteen at the time. The great-grandmother was six years older than the great-grandfather, and it was an arranged marriage. In Chinese tradition, falling in love was considered a disgrace. If one was lucky, he or she could fall in love later on in the marriagement. In the following year, the narrator’s grandmother was born. At least this time, the grandmother had a more decent name, which was Yu-fang (Yu meaning “jade”, and fang meaning “fragrant flowers”). The grandmother was very beautiful; her features were well-defined. One of her greatest features was her “three-inch golden lilies”, which were her extremely small feet. Her feet were bound as a child and she went through much pain. When she was fifteen years old, General Xue Zhi-heng came to Yixian for a visit. General Xue was well-known because of his great deeds as a warlord. The great-grandfather wanted to arrange a marriage between Yu-fang and General Xue. He had to approach General Xue in an indirect way. He did this by making his daughter go to the temple to pray at times of the day in......

Eli Lily Case Report

...Executive Summary In an effort to follow-up its success with Prozac (see Appendix A), Eli Lilly and Company saw a market for an anti-migraine drug that similarly targeted serotonin levels. Their prior research and development involving such neurotransmitters put them at an advantage over their competitors. Their goal was to find a neurotransmitter (i.e. serotonin) that matched the receptor that they felt was the key to relieving the migraine. (Appendix B provides a basic overview on how receptors and neurotransmitters integrate and function.) Aided by cutting edge methods of combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput screening, Lilly was able to test compounds at a significantly quicker rate. In fact, their first set of compounds tested resulted in a higher potency compound than any that resulted from traditional chemistry methods of testing one compound at a time. With time being of the essence in the drug industry, the natural solution was to utilize combinatorial chemistry to develop the anti-migraine drug. It will allow for a quicker drug development and hopefully ensure a spot as one of the first market entrants. First to market was not a must but being a fast follower was very important in order to gain significant market share. Having a facility dedicated to this drug will create and efficient production process and reduce waste. The goal would be to focus just on the one anti-migraine drug in the hope that it will make it all the way to market. However, if it were...

Analysis of to Paint a Water Lily

...In “To Paint a Water Lily,” the narrator analyzes the multiple layers of nature by conveying the complexity of the task that is painting such a living energy. The artist observes in nature a myriad of bustling and action that hides behind, and coexists with the water lily’s beautiful tranquility. Ted Hughes describes, with admiration, this scene and the task of capturing it through the use of language, imagery, and metaphor. Despite the poem’s title and the poet’s attempting to give advice to a painter, the lack of painting materials is apparent. Hughes uses language to convey what will materialize on the painter’s canvas. The “green level of lily leaves roofs the pond’s chamber and paves,” says Hughes. The water lily is to be the arena in which the entire energy of nature will dance upon. The leaves cover and provide setting for the action taking place in the pond. The “flies” and the “air’s dragonfly” zoom about silently shouting their “death-cries everywhere hereabouts.” The interesting paradox of silent cries gives a certain level of depth to the insect life as well. This 3-D imagery is the manifestation of the poet’s admiration for nature’s complexity and the complexity that the water lily provides. The language Hughes uses personifies nature as well. Nature becomes a woman with “two faces,” those of which being the mentioned viewable and hidden worlds of the pond. The extended metaphor of nature as a woman is an elegant and extremely effective representation of the......

Eli Lily

...Eli Lilly: The Evista Project® In early 1998 Dr. August “Gus” Watanabe, executive vice president of science and technology for Eli Lilly and president of Lilly Research Laboratories (see Exhibits 1 and 2), looked out his office window toward downtown Indianapolis. He was contemplating the future commercialization path for Lilly’s new, potential blockbuster drug, Evista®, which had received FDA approval on December 9, 1997, for the prevention of post-menopausal osteoporosis. Evista®, generically known as raloxifene hydrochloride, would be entering the estrogen replacement market, a market that had worldwide sales in excess of $1 billion in 1997.[1] Of even wider significance was the fact that in initial trials, Evista® appeared to lower the incidence of breast cancer and reduced total LDL in post-menopausal women without the negative side effect profiles of currently available estrogen replacement therapies. The potential of this new therapeutic and its impact on Lilly could be enormous. Some analysts predicted that Evista® might become a $1B drug for the company.[2] With this in mind, Watanabe knew that the decision on how best to commercialize Evista® would have a profound effect on Lilly’s well-being. Should Lilly follow its traditional approach to commercialization? Or should Lilly follow a course more in line with the development approach adopted for Evista® in early 1995, which would require the organization to transform its heavyweight......

In 2000 their new antidepressant team (NAT) was tasked with identifying a suitable replacement for Prozac their most profitable antidepressant drug. Prozac’s patent was due to expire in December of 2003. The expiration of Prozac’s patent would allow other pharmaceutical companies to market their generic version of the drug at a lower price. There are four members of the members of the NAT John Kaiser the marketing director at Eli Lilly, Mark Demitrack a psychiatrist and co-leader of NAT, Brett Schmidli a project development expert and co-leader of NAT, and Jim Lancanster the Prozac expert. The NAT was tasked with discussing and evaluating what drug could be developed to elevate depression in its patients and serve as the predecessor to Prozac. The NAT begin its evaluation by focusing on Eli Lilly’s five assets. The five assets were drug products that could be developed into the predecessor. The NAT decided to conduct research on the five assets to determine, which one could be developed into its next flagship depression drug. Asset 1 is R-fluoxetine, which Eli Lilly entered into a licensing agreement with Sepracor to further develop and market this drug but clinical trial stopped due to patient inability to stomach the drug.......
