Bristol-myers Squibb Beats The Street In 4q

The company on Friday said it earned $726 million, or 44 cents per share, in the fourth quarter. That compared with $925 million, or 56 cents per share, in the year-earlier period, when Bristol-Myers took a big write-off for a failed hepatitis C drug. Excluding special items, the drugmaker earned 51 cents per share, well above the average analyst estimate of 43 cents, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Global company revenue rose 6 percent to $4.44 billion, topping Wall Street expectations of $4.3 billion. Bristol-Myers shares were up 1.9 percent to $55 per share in premarket trading. The company said it continues to expect earnings this year of $1.65 to $1.80 per share, excluding special items. The forecast assumes current foreign exchange rates and closing of the planned sales of Bristol-Myers' diabetes business to British drugmaker AstraZeneca Plc in the first quarter.

Bristol Residents Encouraged To Donate Food During Super Bowl Of Caring

The idea gave birth to the National Super Bowl of Caring, which has since generated more than $90 million for soup kitchens, food banks and other charities in communities across the country. This year, the Bristol Borough Partnership will be collecting non-perishable food items on Sunday morning, Feb. 2 as part of the effort. Bristol Borough residents are encouraged to place non-perishable food items in a bag on their front steps by 9:30 a.m. Volunteers will come by and pick up the food beginning at 10 a.m. The food will be donated to local food pantries which are in need of being restocked after a very busy holiday season. The event is sponsored by the Bristol Borough Community Partnership, including St. Marks Catholic Church, Harriman United Methodist Church, Calvary Baptist Church of Bristol, Cairn University, and others from the community. Volunteers willing to help collect and sort food are asked to meet at the Red Youth Building at Calvary Baptist Church in Bristol, 250 Green Lane, Bristol.

Bristol Takes Different Approach To Snow Removal

"I don't want to be stuck and hope they clean things up a bit quicker," said Joe Rodriguez, a Bristol resident. "I know a lot of my neighbors were complaining." The city's public works department said it was because Bethany not only brought snow but ice as well. Officials said that made conditions extra dangerous. For Winter Storm Chester, officials said trucks have been prepping the roads with salt and magnesium chloride since the start of the storm Tuesday afternoon. Once the snow reaches 2 to 3 inches, they'll start to remove it. Some worry the snow-melting solution will harm their vehicles. "I don't try to drive my car in it, it's not good for your frame and brakes and everything, so if you don't have access to a hose, it's tough," said Rob Wells, of Bristol. "It's really not good for your car." If residents have complaints about the plows, Bristol Mayor Ken Cockayne suggested that they contact the city's dispatch center at 860-584-7791.

2013 Year In Review: Bristol Celebrates 400 Years Of Library Service

This process will include consultation with key stakeholders including English Heritage and the Twentieth Century Society. The case may be referred to the Secretary of State if English Heritage or the National Amenity societies are not in agreement with the decision of the Planning Authority. If the application gains approval then the schools new accommodation could be completed and in use for September 2015 at the earliest. The primary school building needs to be near Bristol Cathedral Choir Schools dining hall (which is next to the Central Library), close to other senior school facilities and near to the cathedral to be cost effective and within safe walking distance for four-year-olds. The majority of children at the Cathedral Primary School are most likely to come from within the city, most of them from the central city. At present only 20% of books are accessible to online customers, while 80% are only in a literal card catalog, which of course means that access to the card catalogue is only possible for people who visit the Central Library. The Bristol City Council states, This proposal offers the Central Library both the opportunity and the resources to examine its long term storage strategy. This includes considering what needs to be kept, identifying the most appropriate location for the stock being kept, and most importantly, identifying how to make it as accessible as possible to all is customers. General access to the reference book stock will be improved through a cataloguing project, as this will be available to all online, rather than dependent on attendance in person at Central Library. This is in line with what is happening in other libraries nationally and globally. The reference collections will likely be moved to B Bond, a building near Cumberland Basin, which can re-house the majority of the reference collections.

Bristol - Hot Air Balloon City

Bristol is a historical, varied city with an estimated population of nearly 500,000, which rises to nearly a million when including the population of the surrounding boroughs. Set on the river Avon, in the county of Gloucester, this location is a really distinct part of the world, with picturesque surroundings, rolling hillsides and magnificent architecture. The cathedral is huge vacationer attraction and is nearly 900 years old. You will find a varied selection of B&Bs in Bristol

Bristol has a rich history of ballooning, with the yearly International Balloon Fiesta composed the area every year, bring in thousands of visitors. It is the largest ballooning event in Europe, with 250 trade stands and catering services in addition to a host of various other entertainment choices. The city has more than its fair share of ballooning enthusiasts, and the Ashton Gate launch site is perfect for catching some sensational views of the city and surrounding locations. Set in the premises of a stately estate, the website provides enormous scenery from the minute you get involved in the sky.

Among the most popular sights consist of the grade 1 listed Clifton suspension bridge, which is over 150 years of ages and is a great example of the extremely concerned engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel's work. The bridge took 33 years to build, and although Brunel was commissioned to build the bridge in 1831, when he was simply 24 years old, he did not live to see the conclusion of the job, as work was completed 5 years after his death in 1864. The bridge continues to be a tribute to his astonishing engineering adeptness and was opened as a memorial to his life.

But the Clifton suspension bridge isn't really the only example of Brunel's work in Bristol. Needs to the wind take you over the Harbourside area, the fully recovered SS Great Britain awaits you. The steam-liner was the forerunner of modern traveler liners, and has actually taken a trip thousands of miles, having actually taken regular voyages to Australia and the United States. Bristol's Temple Meads railway station is a yet an additional excellent example of Brunel's influence on the city.

For those fortunate to wander above Bristol Zoo, there's a host of unique animals that you can see from the sky. You can behold the gorilla, Asiatic lions, pygmy hippos, red pandas and much, much more. Even if the animals aren't visible, the zoo is a spectacle in its own right - the whole area is beautifully landscaped and filled with wonderful foliage that can be admired from a great distance.

The city itself is a sight to behold. Ancient intertwining streets, gorgeous architecture and an appealing harbor make this city among the most gorgeous of the British Isles. Brunel's impact on the city makes it a really unique spectacle. Wherever the wind takes you, you're guaranteed to view some unbelievable sights that will linger in the memory long after you touch down back to earth.
