Overview

La medicina está en quiebra. Mientras los pacientes creen que los fármacos que toman son seguros y están aprobados, y los médicos intentan prescribir los medicamentos más efectivos, en la industria farmacéutica global, que mueve cada año casi 5 billones de euros, reina la corrupción y la avaricia. Los médicos y los pacientes necesitan estudios científicos solventes para poder tomar decisiones informadas. Pero las empresas proporcionan una información sesgada de sus medicamentos, distorsionando y exagerando los resultados y eliminando aquellos aspectos que no les favorecen. Las agencias reguladoras de los gobiernos ocultan información de vital importancia. Y médicos y asociaciones de pacientes aparentemente independientes están financiados por la industria. El conjunto de estos factores hace que, inevitablemente, un gran número de pacientes se vea perjudicado por las malas prácticas de la industria farmacéutica. Mala farma es un ataque claro e inteligente a este estado de cosas, y nos demuestra con toda exactitud las distorsiones a las que se ve sometida la ciencia, cómo ello contribuye a la destrucción de nuestros servicios de salud, y qué facil sería arreglar esta situación.

Name: Cassiphone, but if you call me that i shall rip your throat out with my pet lions. Call me Cassi. <br> Age: um.... well I guess Im like, centuries old, but being the daughter of an immortal woman and a god makes me age weird so in mortal years I would be 16. <br> Gender: female.... its obvious to me but some poor blind people may not know. <br> Parents: Poseidon and Circe. Circe is an immortal sorceress. (Read the myth. They were supoosed to have a son, which they did, but i came along too!) <br> Description: Well Im like... 5'7? I guess... anyway I'm kinda medium in the whole.... body department. Im not a straight pancake, but Im not a fat whale. I have shoulder length sandy blond hair with one streak that keeps changing colors in the sun. Annoying sometimes. Um I have kind of green eyes, with greyish silver splotches around the pupils. I have freckles across my cheeks and my nose, but I cant see them. <br> Personality: really? Are you that lazy/pathetic/socially awkward to not find out for yourself? Talk to me. I probably wont kill you. <br> Powers: the special stuff all Poseidon kids can do, blah blah blah. Really exciting. But I am a sorceress like my mom. So dont get me mad or I will turn you into a ferret. <br> Past: Read the myths about Circe. I grew up on her island but she abandoned me when I was like, 4. So my dad took me in and I lived under there until i was 14. My twin brother died as a baby, so I never knew him, and all my half siblings my mom had died before I was like, 6. Remember Im stuck at like, 16. <br> Likes: the color purple, animals, popsicles, looking at boy bands, youtube. <br> Dislikes: listening to boy bands, boys who act like girls, girls who act like boys. <br> Crush: nope. <br> Boyfriend: nope. Kinda hard to find someone who wants a girl who stays 16 while they continue aging. <br> Other: please watch out for when i get mad. Really, ferrets are not the worst I can do.

She thinks Athena, Apollo, Hecate, Zeus, or maybe Ares Powers: ((haven't been decided yet)) Family: Ask her and your head will most likely be on a much less comfortable place than your neck! *smiles sweetly* She'll tell when she feels like it Hair: A choppy pitch black mass of tiny braids that has gold woven into it.

The other is neon green, flecked with gold. Build: Tall, willowy, graceful, flexible, and extremely strong. Weapons: A lot. She has two swords with intracate designs carved into them of which she won't explain. Jade also has an array of daggers hidden in her combat boots and black leather jacket. Her gold arm bands turn into an Imperial Gold bow and a quiver with arrows that are tipped with Imperial Gold, Celestial Bronze, and (drumroll please) Regular Silver!!!! Skill in Battle: Terrifying Other Skills: Singing, piano, clarinet, drums, guitar, basketball, soccor, gymnastics, archery, hoping, healing, and other stuff. Yay!!! Skin: Cocoa-colored, with a variety of scars. Personality: You still don't know Jade? Wow. Just talk to her. Casual: Well, lemme think... She wears pants and a shirt and blue and green disco ball earrings. Special Occasion: Her hair is let out of her braids, making her hair tumble down her back in waves, softening the sharp angles of her face. Jade would wear a shimmery, sleeveless turquoise dress and saphire earrings in a silver setting, with a necklace to match. And no makeup. Ever. You got it? Boyfriend: None Crush: I'm sorry, but ARE YOU REALLY THAT STUPID? You don't ask a girl who she's crushing on if you don't want to lose a vital artery! Friends: Not very many... Enemies: Too many to count Likes: STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!! Like Selena Gomez, Bridget Mendler, Kelly Clarkson, Lemonade Mouth, anything that has to do with music, basketball, swimming, AND, archery, thunderstorms, blue, green, reafing, writing, jumping, making fun of teachers, artistical stuffity-stuff-stuff and MORE STUFF!!!!!! Dislikes: OTHER STUFF!!!!! Like Justin Bieber, know-it-alls, people who say they're invincible (hint, hint. You know who you are) godmodders, monsters, bullies, songs that are catchy but really annoying, AND, EVEN MORE STUFFITY-STUFF-STUFF-STUFF!!!!!!!!!! History: Scroll up and up and up and up and up and up, etc.. until you see the line titled, "Family." Read that. Get the picture? Activeness: 8.999999999999999999999999999999999999999... etc Other: A group of people is trying to kill her. All righty then. That should be quite enough. Happy now, stalkers?
