The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is hosting a virtual public meeting to present information and receive public feedback on Oklahoma’s Electric Vehicle Plan to expand the availability of EV charging stations along major highway corridors through a new federal program.

Oklahoma will receive $66 million in federal funding over the next five years through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program to improve and expand its statewide network of electric vehicle charging stations. Through public-private partnerships, charging stations will be installed near freeways and other major highways and operated by external partners such as truck stops, shopping malls, local governments and tribes.

This virtual meeting and presentation will offer stakeholders from the public and transport sectors a first look at the program and the opportunity to contribute to the allocation of funds. These include proposals for Oklahoma highways and communities that need expanded electric vehicle charging capabilities and specific locations for stations.

Oklahoma Virtual EV Plan Meeting
Available from June 20th to July 5th
http://tiny.cc/EVpublicmeeting

The public can visit them http://tiny.cc/EVpublicmeeting You can watch a recorded presentation at any time and send comments to ODOT until July 5th. No face-to-face meeting is scheduled for this program.

Federal guidelines require that NEVI program funding prioritize the addition of charging stations at least every 50 miles along freeways and other already-designated alternative fuel corridors. These areas include key highway and turnpike corridors such as US-69, US-81 and US-412 along the Cimarron and Cherokee turnpikes. Once these corridors are addressed in Oklahoma, the remaining federal funds can be used to expand EV charging infrastructure in other underserved areas.

With coronavirus infection rates rising, health officials are reportedly to be discussing a return to indoor masking and the possibility of approving COVID-19 vaccines for infants and preschoolers.

Israel officially lifted the indoor mask mandate on April 24, scrapping one of the few remaining coronavirus restrictions still in effect after more than two years of the pandemic.

According to an unnamed Health Ministry official quoted by public broadcaster Kan on Sunday, a return to the measure is under review and a decision will be made next week.

Since the mask requirement was first imposed in April 2020 and before it was lifted a few months ago, Israelis were required to wear face coverings indoors on all but 10 days last June, when the mandate was briefly lifted before being brought back quickly as it burgeoned cases at the time.

In addition, officials will also consider approving COVID-19 vaccines for the youngest children after U.S. regulators Friday gave their approval for the first vaccinations for infants and preschoolers.

According to news site Ynet, the Israeli Ministry of Health will discuss the matter at a meeting on Tuesday.

“Since there’s already an FDA recommendation, I don’t see why we shouldn’t do the same here,” said pediatrician Dr. Clalit Health Services’ Doron Dushnitsky, according to the report.

The potential policy changes come as health experts have warned a new wave of infections appears to be underway.

As of Sunday morning, 158 patients were in serious condition, 48 of whom were classified as critical.

A week ago there were 106 patients in serious condition.

The reproduction number (R) saw a small drop, reaching 1.3 on Sunday – down from 1.31 on Saturday. At the beginning of the month it was 1.52. The R number is based on rates from ten days earlier and measures how many people each coronavirus carrier infects on average, with any number above 1 meaning the spread of COVID-19 is increasing.

It started to climb above 1 for the first time in mid-May after staying below that level for almost two months.

The health ministry said Sunday that 4,931 people tested positive for the virus a day earlier, compared with 3,339 new cases diagnosed a week earlier and 1,575 cases diagnosed two weeks ago. Test rates tend to decrease over the weekend.

The country’s death toll since the pandemic began stood at 10,896.

While Israel has been seeing rising infection numbers for several weeks, a surge in critically ill patients is a real concern as the country grapples with the spread of the new variant BA.5, with experts warning hospitals may have to reopen COVID wards if the Case is situation persists.

“The real clue is the number of patients in serious condition, because we know that a lot of the morbidity goes undetected because people don’t go and get tested, and that should also be taken into account,” says immune system expert Prof. Das’s Cyrille Cohen announced Bar Ilan University last week.

Cohen advised wearing masks in crowded places like buses and malls to avoid further cases of infection.

Last week, coronavirus czar Prof Salman Zarka said the new BA.5 variant is rapidly gaining traction and is more vaccine-resistant than previous strains.

He said BA.5 will replace Omicron as the dominant variant and will continue to gain ground.

However, other experts have said everything should be considered – including the possibility of offering a fifth vaccination to the elderly and immunocompromised.

Lots of clean energy developments in the San Diego area this past week.

Executives from San Pasqual Band of Missionary Indians say they have commissioned a new microgrid to power the tribal government complex at Valley Center.

A microgrid is defined as a self-contained power system that supplies power to a specific geographic area, e.g. a college campus, medical complex, shopping center or in this case tribal areas when main power sources are cut off by storms and other natural disasters.

The grid has ‘steerability’, meaning it can disconnect from the larger power grid and operate on its own to generate the power needed by emergency services such as police and firefighters.

One or more types of distributed energy, such as solar, wind, combined heat and power, and generators, produce electrical energy within a microgrid. The latest microgrids now have batteries to store power for emergencies.

When power goes out, the new microgrid will power the tribal land from a combination of solar power and energy stored in the system’s batteries.

grid, which has offices in Fremont, UK and India, installed the Grid system. Officials said the equipment can generate 90% of the electricity it needs from grid power, which can both reduce costs and provide clean backup power.

* * *

The city of San Diego, which is installing eight microgrids, including a fire station and three police stations, said its systems will help reduce electricity use by 25% by 2035 from 2010 levels. The solar emergency microgrids to be installed in the city will be funded and owned by Shell New Energies.

* * *

Based in San Diego EDF Renewables North America said it has received three orders that will generate a total of 1 gigawatt of solar power to provide clean energy for the United States New York State Energy Research and Development Agency.

Stephane Desdunes, an executive of EDF’s Northeast Region, said, “With more than 1,000MW of solar and storage projects still in the development pipeline, EDF Renewables is excited to work alongside NYSERDA and New York State to… meet the goal of 70% clean energy for New York residents by 2030.”

EDF is an independent power producer with 35 years of experience in renewable energy, according to a press statement.

San Diego’s Californian American Water announced that Highland Tank Conduit-Hydro Clean Energy Projecta clean energy recovery infrastructure based in New York rentricity.

State sponsored Public Utilities Commission, the project aims to modernize the pressure regulation infrastructure. When completed, the plant will generate between 75 and 125 kilowatts of electricity per day.

Rentricity’s technology captures excess pressure and flow in gravity-fed water distribution lines, which is converted into clean energy for the grid or at the customer’s site.

California American Water’s Highland Tank here in San Diego, to be retrofitted with two generator turbines, is certified for safe drinking water and will maximize annual power production over daily and seasonal cycles.

California American Water, a New Jersey-based subsidiary of American Water, provides reliable water and wastewater services to more than 725,000 users.

The EDC is the local nonprofit organization “mobilizing government and citizen leaders for an inclusive economic development strategy to connect data to decision-making, maximize regional prosperity, improve global competitiveness, and effectively position San Diego for investment and talent. “

The group says its 200 members range from startups like SkySafe to the largest employers like Qualcomm and SDG&E.

“As a senior executive at a major consulting and technology employer in San Diego, Jennie is perfectly positioned to lead EDC at this unique moment,” she said Mark Cafferty, the chief executive of the EDC. “With a pandemic still not behind us, Jennie’s leadership, dedication and deep understanding of San Diego’s strengths and opportunities are just what the organization needs as we continue to build the business case for inclusion.”

According to a recent analysis by the online real estate agent, San Diego is dodging a bullet when it comes to a recent drop in US luxury home sales redfin.

According to the analysis, national luxury sales fell nearly 18% year over year in the three months ended April 30, the biggest drop since the coronavirus pandemic began, rocking the real estate market.

But the average selling price of luxury homes here is up 31% year-to-date!

The luxury market is cooling nationwide as rising interest rates, the falling stock market, inflation and economic security contribute to a drop in demand, Redfin said.

“Luxury sales growth began to slow in the spring and summer of 2021 amid an extreme shortage of high-end homes for sale, limiting the number of homes for sale. Although the inventory shortage has gradually eased, the lack of luxury homes in the market is likely still contributing to the decline in luxury sales,” read a press release.

* * *

Another real estate-related point worth noting… San Diego is America’s most beautiful city; we all know that. Now comes a bit of confirmation from the apartment rental website Rent Cafe.

According to RentCafe’s latest 17-measure ranking, we’re ranked #50 on a list of the 50 Best Home Rentals in America. That’s pretty low, but we were the only church in California to make this list.

We have the fourth best overall quality of life, thanks to being ranked third nationally for schooling and third when it comes to recreational facilities that residents have access to. In addition, a large number of apartments are located in top locations, close to shopping centers that are easily accessible by public transport or your own car.

A few more points… San Diego’s economy is one of the most competitive in the US, boasting the 8th highest level of income and the 7th highest level of job opportunities.

While San Diego is dead on the list of the top 50 cities for renters because of the prohibitive cost of living, it makes up for it with a spacious average apartment size of 856 square feet — with high-end units making up more than half of the city’s entire housing stock.

Finally, these two notable life science elements…Entos Pharma recently held a grand opening for its new collaborative life sciences research facility with office and laboratory space in Torrey Pines. Entos is headquartered in Canada and says it develops genetic drugs that target the cell directly. The company recently closed a big deal with Eli Lilly and Co. to support the development of gene therapies for multiple neurological indications.

Meanwhile, another local anti-cancer biotech based in San Diego Artiva Biotherapeutics, which strives to develop natural killer cell therapies that are safe and accessible to cancer patients, recently opened its US corporate offices and laboratory space here. The 52,000 square foot facility will include a multi-suite cell manufacturing center to support the company’s product development pipeline.

The boardwalks some New Jerseyers grew up on have been rated among America’s finest.

travel website TrendingTravel.org Ranked 15th best boardwalk in the country based on popularity, scenery, activity and more – and three of them are right here in the Garden State.

Keep scrolling to see which three made it:

  • Atlantic City: Known for its numerous casinos, restaurants, shopping malls and being more than four miles long, Atlantic City’s boardwalk certainly deserves a spot on the list. It’s also right next to some of the best spots to post on the beach and soak up the sun.
  • Altitudes by the sea: With just over two miles of scenic shoreline, Seaside Heights boardwalk is perhaps best known for its proximity to the Casino Pier amusement park. Its countless shops, restaurants and events also make it the perfect destination for a family-friendly summer vacation.
  • Wildwood’s Boardwalk: The Wildwoods Boardwalk stretches nearly 40 blocks and offers shuttle service for visitor convenience while serving up a little slice of history with its gift shops, museums, and other attractions that date back to the 1890s.

Looking at the conflict in Ukraine, it becomes clear that hardware alone does not win a battle. Flexibility and morale also count quite a bit. In addition to some technical suggestions, I would like to go into personal information.

My wife has been working from home on Fridays for years. (Regular NY/CT traffic mixes with vacation traffic and the many hours spent in the car could be better put to work.) Since she does sensitive contract work, they gave her a VPN (Virtual Privacy Network) account to use . When the COVID lockdown took place, all employees had to work from home. In fact, there’s a chance they’ll never return to a full-time office environment.

What does that have to do with pharmaceutical work? Spring. I used to joke that when I started (spoiler alert: GMP didn’t exist then) we worked in the lab from Monday morning to Friday noon and then we wrote all our lab data and reports. Under GMP (or the QA interpretation of GMP) we did lab work on Monday and spent the next four days writing. That may be an exaggeration, but not that far-fetched.

A few years ago, a colleague wanted to do paperwork, took her notebook home to write down her findings, and almost got fired for removing “controlled data” from company premises. With the availability of electronic notebooks, secure “cloud” computing, and VPNs, many “busy” jobs can be easily done from home. This is especially true for jobs that are primarily paperwork, namely quality assurance, business reports, sales, data processing for clinical trials, NDA or ANDA submissions – most of which can be done from a remote location.

Allowing employees to use remote connections would have a number of benefits:

  1. Office space could be reduced, saving electricity and HVAC requirements.
  2. The flexibility of homeworkers would allow them to see a doctor or look after children, for example, without having to take vacation days. This should increase “time at work”.
  3. Gas and car care costs would drop for employees, freeing management to increase wages faster than planned.
  4. Meetings, which are often not necessary, could be scheduled through a corporate Zoom account or other account. This would allow employees to discuss and share information while reducing travel time (either walking to another building or driving from another facility) to the meeting. Better yet, it would keep management focused on the need for each meeting.
  5. The relaxed stress level would likely reduce staff turnover looking for “greener pastures” elsewhere.

To implement this culture, the company may need to provide employees with a subsidy to upgrade their internet service and possibly provide laptops, but these costs would be far outweighed by the savings in infrastructure spend. It would also serve as an impetus to improve IT security, especially with the proliferation of cybercrime (information theft, ransomware, etc.).


That’s what we investigated at my last job. The newly manufactured devices had some potential disadvantages. Above all, there were far fewer laboratories equipped with WLAN at the time. WiFi is now ubiquitous in places as diverse as shopping malls, homes, restaurants and, yes, offices and laboratories.

There were also security/confidentiality concerns. The signals could, it was thought, be read by third parties and VPNs were not available. I accidentally found a solution to the first one. When the company covered the windows with a metal-doped coating to help with air conditioning, no one could pick up a cell phone signal. In combination with the building’s steel frame, they had created a Faraday cage impermeable to radio signals. Ta-da! Instant security. Also, we now routinely use VPNs as our primary source of security.

Why e-notebooks? Transmission errors are more common than you think. Most laboratory equipment (e.g. electronic balances) has the option of entering the mass directly into the “book”. Coupled with a barcode reader, a substance’s identity and weight would always be correct. If you make it easy to have the notebook handy, the use of numbers will be written on paper and later entered into your notebook – a GMP violation by the way.


Currently, all equipment used to manufacture dosage forms must be disassembled, washed and dried, and inspected for residues before being used on the next product. This is particularly troublesome for a contract manufacturer for two reasons: 1) they rarely have a large number of “extra” pieces of equipment, so they have to wait for the go-ahead for whatever equipment is in use before proceeding, and 2) current methods require hands-on work both in production and QC department and are quite time consuming. Often a large percentage of production equipment is down for cleaning or waiting for cleaning tests to return.

Yes, there is a better way, or why would I have brought up this topic in the first place? Everyone who has flown in the US has come into contact with an ion mobility spectrometer (IMS). Here, a TSA agent wipes your hand, briefcase handle, or carry-on bag with a small piece of cloth and places it on a device near the exit.

This sample swab is heated, causing the organic molecules to vaporize and the vapors to flow through the chamber: the molecules are ‘soft’ ionized (usually given a negative charge) so as not to break the molecule, and enter the chamber through a negative centrifugally charged grid (repulsion). The molecules all take on a single charge and move according to their charge/mass ratio – the smallest ions arrive at the final lattice first, followed by the others according to mass. They hit a collector and generate a voltage proportional to the number of ions hitting them.

The mechanism is similar to time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF-MS), but a gentle backflush of ambient air flows counter to the sample flow, dispersing the molecular groups and creating a pseudo-long flight path that enables separation. This eliminates the need for an expensive high-vacuum pump needed for “real” mass spectrometry, reducing maintenance and operating costs.


Ultimately, the move to continuous manufacturing (CM) would eliminate the need to disassemble and clean each unit between products. Since the main benefit of CM is time and labor saving, traditional GMP cleaning validation is a millstone around the neck of production. An idea came to me a few years ago: why not use the example of an old mortar and pestle?

How is this helpful? We didn’t clean the mortals with water or solvents as the open pore porcelain would retain moisture and make it worse than not cleansing. Instead, we ground up several portions of a dry salt (e.g. NaCl) until all the chemicals that were in the mortar were removed. I postulated that a similar approach to CM would be to run a pure excipient common to the product being finished and the product that follows it (e.g. lactose) through the assembled CM unit until it is clean . Of course, this process would need to be validated prior to implementation, but then the CM unit would only need to be disassembled for maintenance or component replacement.
