Sorry about that, but on a more philosophical theme, the world is changing, the model is changing.
I worked for 26 years in research in big pharma, no brainer right, people get sick, you sell them drugs.
Enter underperformers in management, patent expiring, generic drug makers taking over , big pharma always seen as the big bad wolf and much more. Most pharma are cutting back, closing research sites, etc...
I personally lost much more than the $10k when the research center where I worked closed down.
The business is changing and people have to adapt or perish.
Didn't Polaroid close down? Because they did not adapt.
We all hate it when our little bubble is burst by someone else.
It's the nature of the beast, please someone, make someone else unhappy.
I remember watching a documentary where a farmer figured out it was cheaper to feed the coyotes then suffer the loss on his livestock
Way back, one of the owners of the archery shop where I did business told me he was going hunting bear in the off season, basically using a deer farmers permit to shoot bears around the farm.
Maybe offering wolf hunt, charge a fee, make money and lower the wolf population
