New Thin Film Technology to Revolutionize Storage and Distribution of Biologic Treatments and Vaccines

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Jurata Thin Film, a company focused on revolutionizing how biologics are shipped and stored, is bringing to market a new technology that allows biologics and vaccines to be packaged, shipped and stored at room temperature for extended periods of time.

Trump administration bans TikTok and WeChat distribution in US. What does this actually mean?

In a massive escalation of the conflict between the US and China, the Trump administration on Friday morning said it will ban distribution of the Chinese social media apps TikTok and WeChat inside the US on Sunday, Sept. 20.

In addition, the administration’s order would ban the nation’s Internet hosting and data delivery companies from selling services to TikTok or WeChat.

The administration crackdown wouldn’t instantly block access to TikTok and WeChat inside the US. Instead, it would degrade the quality of the services, while hindering their future expansion in the US market.

A US citizen who hasn’t already downloaded the apps would no longer be able to obtain them from any US-based app store, including Apple’s App Store or the Google Play Store. It would still be possible to find the apps on stores based outside the US, but most consumers wouldn’t know how. Those who already have the
