Clearly, the use of advanced analytics is one of the hottest topics in the business press these days and is certainly top of mind among supply chain managers. Yet, not everyone is in agreement as to just what the term means or how to deploy advanced analytics to maximum advantage. At HP, the Strategic Planning and Modeling team has been utilizing advanced operational analytics for some 30 years to solve business problems requiring innovative approaches.
January 30, January 31, Some 5, birds peck at one another as they loiter around their shed that will become cramped as they grow. Bags containing their feed for five weeks are stacked outside the shed. Some of the chicks gulp down a yellow liquid sugar water from plastic containers.
The medicines, antibiotics, are given to the birds to protect them from diseases or to make them gain weight faster, so that more can be grown each year for greater profit. One drug typically given this way is colistin.
Their continued use in farming increases the chance of bacteria developing resistance to them, leaving them useless when treating patients. In India, at least five animal pharmaceutical companies are openly advertising products containing colistin as growth promoters.
Giving colistin to chicken is complete and utter madness: It comes in bags with pictures of happy-looking chickens on the packet. There is no legal requirement for one in the country. In Europe, colistin is available to farmers only if prescribed by a vet for the treatment of sick animals.
The company told the Bureau: Other poultry companies are selling colistin products or importing it for use on farms, according to the data. KFC has made a similar promise about its U. They have promised to do the same in India, but without giving any timeframe.
Walsh, who is Professor of Medical Microbiology at Cardiff University, and his Chinese colleagues discovered a colistin-resistant gene in Chinese pigs in The gene, mcr-1, could be transferred within and between species of bacteria.
That meant that microbes did not have to develop resistance themselves, they could become resistant just by acquiring the mcr-1 gene. Indian farmers use antimicrobials as a substitute for good farming practices Ramanan LaxminarayanDirectorCentre for Disease Dynamics, Economics and Policy, New Delhi The discovery was met with worldwide panic in the medical community as it meant the resistance could be passed to bugs which are already multi-drug resistant, leading to untreatable infections.
Rampant use of the drug in livestock farming has been cited as the most likely way mcr-1 was spread. It has been detected in bacteria from animals and humans in more than 30 countries, spanning four continents.
Another four colistin resistant genes mcr-2 to mcr-5 have been discovered since.
Colistin-resistant bacteria, once rare, are now widespread. Giving it to chickens as feed is crazy. Under any other circumstances, it should be thought of and treated as an environmental toxin. It should be labelled as such. It should not be exported all over the world to be used in chicken feed.
Drug resistance has been called one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development by the WHO. Currently the problem is thought to killpeople worldwide — one person a minute — though these figures have been disputed by some academics.
The death toll is expected to rise to 10 million by if no action is taken, with 4. Common procedures like joint replacements, Caesarean sections, organ transplants and chemotherapy could also become too risky to carry out.
The total is likely to be higher as the product may be shipped under its brand name rather than being labelled as colistin. By comparison, the U. Colistin is manufactured by two companies in India but the country is also importing at least tonnes of the drug a year.
India has been called the epicentre of the global drug resistance crisis. Unregulated sale of the drugs for human or animal use — accessed without prescription or diagnosis — has led to unchecked consumption and misuse.
India has a large population, some of whom defecate in the open, and waste is often poured untreated into rivers and lakes, creating the perfect conditions for bugs to share resistance.This case study discusses reasons for McDonald's success in India, it's business strategy and efforts to get more out of its stores in India.

Slur Represents Reason & Origins; 10% Off: Jews: Refers to circumcision and consumerism (never pay retail). The term is most widely used in the UK where circumcision among non-Jews or non-Muslims is more rare, but in the United States, where it is more common, it can be considered insulting to many non-Jewish males as well.
