We believe these achievements highlight the safety and efficacy of our CellFX System for use in aesthetic dermatology. Along with our clinical investigators, we have built a strong foundation from which we intend to expand CellFX System indications for use, first in aesthetic dermatology and subsequently for other applications over time, as we execute on our stepwise regulatory strategy,” said Darrin Uecker, President and CEO of Pulse Biosciences. “The detailed and thoughtful preparation by our team has enabled the immediate implementation of our Controlled Launch program of the CellFX System integrated with CellFX CloudConnect services. In both the U.S. and in Europe, we now have KOLs performing CellFX procedures. This measured approach is our top focus in 2021 and will lay the groundwork for long term adoption of the CellFX System with CellFX CloudConnect and growth for Pulse Biosciences.” Fourth Quarter 2020 Results Cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $20.5 million as of December 31, 2020, compared to $29.6 million as of September 30, 2020.

Stock-based compensation expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 was $10.1 million, compared to $11.3 million in the prior year period.

Impact of COVID-19 The COVID-19 pandemic had minimal impact on our operations in the fourth quarter of 2020. Product development, execution of clinical trials, regulatory timelines and controlled commercial launch have not been materially affected at this time but due to the uncertain scope and duration of the pandemic, future impact to our operations and financial results cannot be reasonably estimated.

Annual Fiesta attendance down slightly

first_img Pinterest Facebook Facebook Previous articleSigns show post-high school possibilitiesNext articleBynum School’s 2021 Graduation Ceremony Federico Martinez Twitter Annual Fiesta attendance down slightly Local News Post-COVID attendance for the 25th annual Fiesta West Texas event was down about 20% this year, but organizers say the lower-than-normal turnout had more to do with poor weather conditions than COVID concerns.Approximately 18,000 people attended this year’s 3-day fiesta which was held May 7-10 at Ector County Coliseum, event organizer Richard Esparza. The popular event usually averages about 20,000 per year.“We were down this year but we’re very pleased with the turnout,” Esparza said. “Going into the event we weren’t sure how COVID would affect attendance.“To be honest, I think what affected us more was the weather. We started seeing lightning, the wind picked up and rain clouds moved in Friday evening just when people normally start showing. I think that kept some people away.”Attendance picked up on Saturday and Sunday when sunny skies and warmer temperatures returned, Esparza said.Although Garza did not disclose financial figures, he said this year’s event was still profitable.“We had a lot more vendors than usual,” Esparza said. “A lot of them were from New Mexico and other states where COVID restrictions are still in place and large events are still prohibited.”Vendor Bobbea Vernell Cadena, co-owner of New Mexico-based All Nations Designs & More, said this was his first time in Odessa. Cadena said he is working several Texas events this year because New Mexico still has a ban on large events.“We’ve been working the Texas Hill Country this spring,” he said. “If it goes well in Texas, we may keep coming back.”This year’s fiesta featured a variety of attractions, including Sea Lion shows inside the coliseum, pig races and ongoing traditional Mexican folk dance performances by various dance groups. Music concerts featured performances by several of the hottest Latin music bands, including Siggno and Los Rieleros Del Norte.Esparza said organizers are already working on next year’s fiesta. Next year’s musical headliner is slated to be five-time Grammy Award winning group La Mafia, which plays Tejano and Regional Mexican-style music.

The Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Ravindra V. Ghuge was hearing the plea filed by one Sanjay Bhaskarrao Kale who sought inclusion of above-mentioned laws as compulsory subjects of education at high level of studies, i.e., Undergraduate and Post-Graduate courses. Interestingly, the bench, in its order, quoted the Foreword (penned by former Chief Justice Y. V. Chandrachud) to Justice K. K. Mathew’s book ‘Democracy, Equality and Freedom’ (edited by Dr. Upendra Baxi) The Court noted that his Lordship has expressed that “in our present dispensation, a Judge cannot, except for honourable exceptions, lay plausible claim of legal scholarship.” The Bench further said, “We certainly are not exceptions and, therefore, would never dream of claiming legal or any other scholarship. Why we say so is because of the nature of concern expressed in this PIL petition.” The Court underlined that Judges have to primarily don the hat of an adjudicator and having regard to the manifold activities in relation to the administrative work, Judges also don other hats. Significantly, the Court said, “An attempt is made by the petitioner by presenting this Public Interest Litigation to make us don the hat of an academician too and interference in academic matters, a field of activity where we have little or no expertise. There could be a judicial over-reach and stepping into the domain of the other organs of the State, if we were to entertain the prayers in this PIL petition.” Lastly, the Court said that the matter must be left to the discretion of the experts in the educational field and the petitioner was granted leave to pursue his remedy before such authorities.Click Here To Download Order/JudgmentRead Order/JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

SMC students soak up Ireland atmosphere

first_imgWhile many students began last Saturday morning crowded around a television, thousands of Notre Dame fans were already enjoying some savage craic, also known in Ireland as “great fun,” as they cheered on their football team in Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Although students and fans traveled thousands of miles to support the team in different ways, most agreed that the weekend was an unforgettable experience and a great way to start off the season. For some, the weekend provided several responsibilities as well as exciting opportunities for those traveling abroad. Senior Laura Krahe traveled with the football team as a trainer, arriving in Dublin early Thursday morning to begin preparations for the game on Saturday. Krahe said the team’s schedule was both busy and fun.   “The team arrived and we had a practice, followed by an Irish meal and Irish dancing. The next day was similar,” she said. “The team had a walkthrough in the morning followed by a bus tour of Dublin. Saturday was the game and it was a truly great and memorable experience.” Also finding time to enjoy the sights in Dublin between busy schedules were two members of Notre Dame’s band, senior Erin Brown and junior Amy Minasian. “With two big performances, the pep rally at The O2 Arena and the halftime show at the game, we had a lot to rehearse and prepare for,” Brown said. “We still did get a few hours of free time every day, though, which my friends and I used to soak up as much of the Dublin game day atmosphere as possible.” Minasian also found some downtime to sightsee between band commitments. “I hung out at the pubs with my section, where we met fans and Irish people,” she said. Some students, however, traveled on their own accord and had more time to discover Ireland with family and friends. Senior Bri Tepe traveled with her family to not only cheer on the team but to also discover her family’s Irish heritage. “There really was no better way to bring in the football season than being at the home opener in Ireland. It’s something I won’t forget and I’m very grateful I got to be a part of it,” she said. In recounts of the weekend, the enthusiasm of the Irish and Americans in Dublin seemed overwhelmingly positive. “Even the Irish men and women welcomed Notre Dame and Navy. They flew flags of both schools, had signs welcoming the teams and fans, and were more than happy to help the teams and staff with making game day a success,” Krahe said. Brown added that the fans from Ireland were enthusiastic, although a little bit mystified by American football. Favorite game day moments from students include the band’s halftime show, continuing Notre Dame traditions such as the pre-game march and push-ups in the stadium, and participating in the energy of the city. “Seeing Dublin made the spirit of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish come alive even more,” Krahe said. “We were playing the game we love in the country that inspires us.”last_img read more
