[11:45] {Threei} - A former Food and Drug Administration scientist says he was fired after raising concerns about the risks of radiation exposure from high-grade medical scanning. Dr. Julian Nicholas told an audience of imaging specialists that he and other FDA staffers "were pressured to change their scientific opinion," by managers.
[11:45] {Threei} ***Reminder: On 03/28 the New York Times reported that the FDA ignored warnings from medical experts concerning the risks related to the use of CT scans on colon cancer patients. In one particular case, documents show that the FDA's managers sought to approve an application by GE to allow the use of CT scans for colon cancer screening, despite numerous objections from agency scientists, who wanted the application to be rejected.
[11:45] {Threei} ***Note: The FDA will conduct a two-day public meeting, March 30 and 31, entitled: "Device Improvements to Reduce Unnecessary Radiation Exposure From Medical Imaging." The meeting will discuss steps manufacturers of devices used in computed tomography (CT) and fluoroscopy can take that would help reduce unnecessary patient exposure to ionizing radiation during CT/fluoroscopic procedures.

[12:10] {RonS} dino, optionmonster.com is a public site. Najarian brothers are tied to a direct feed that tracks up to 200k/sec of options activity. Most significantly they discern if that activity is at the bid/ask or midpoint. Consequently they can tell if the trade is bullish or bearish. Noone else can do this that I know.

[12:26] {Threei} they don't pay any?
[12:27] {RonS} ...much of that info, while good, is tough to act on since you do not know if the trades are being bought at the ask or sold at the bid. That is critical info to discern the directional bet being played. Also many times the activity reads are straddle and strangles which are directionally worthless. Not being critical of any info per se,
[12:27] {RonS} ...but what these guys do is unique.
[12:28] {dino} pwrd l .99
[12:28] {Threei} well, my assumption is:
[12:29] {Threei} when strategy in the scanner is named "10 to 1 put/call ratio and heading lower", you pretty much know the direction
[12:29] {Threei} the rest is watching the stock and finding your play
