Rèquiem pels plans estratègics

Mon, 2016-05-09 11:29

El 3 de febrer passat, Gas Natural Fenosa va presentar els resultats de l'exercici 2015 i va aprofitar per fer balanç del pla estratègic 2013-2015 en uns termes molt satisfactoris per l'assoliment dels objectius marcats. Tanmateix, la reacció dels mercats va ser negativa i els dies successius el preu de les accions va anar a la baixa. Hi va contribuir l'anunci de l'ajornament de la presentació del nou pla estratègic a causa de la volatilitat dels preus energètics, segons va dir el conseller delegat de Gas Natural Fenosa, Rafael Villaseca.

Mon, 2016-05-09 10:29

Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (MNI) have identified novel gene mutations that cause hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP), a step forward in efforts to treat this debilitating disease.

It is estimated that between two and 10 people per 100,000 in the general population have HSP, a disease characterized by weakness or spasticity in the lower limbs. HSP is caused by mutations inherited from one or both parents.
