Mylan NV said it would launch the first generic version of its allergy auto-injector EpiPen for $300, half the price of the branded product, the drugmaker's second step in less than a week to counter the backlash over the product's steep price. The company reduced the out-of-pocket costs of EpiPen for some patients on Thursday, but kept the list price at about $600, a move that U.S. lawmakers and Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said was not enough. Mylan said on Monday it expected to launch the generic product "in several weeks", an unusual move considering the branded bestseller is still patent protected and major rival treatments have failed to get regulatory clearances.

Response from Eddie, AFL not nearly enough
THERE'S so much wrong about the Eddie McGuire-James-Brayshaw-Danny Frawley pack mentality attack of Caroline Wilson. As was the AFL's insipid response on Monday.
Secret tape not the only talking point
THE reasons behind a decision to release a secret expletive-laden recording of former Chief Justice Tim Carmody are almost as juicy as the tape is expected to be.

Why False Equivalence Is A Horrible Thing
False equivalence — the practice of presenting differing views as being equally valid sides of an argument, even if one side is objectively true and the others are not — is becoming a problem. A very big problem.

It was these tiny moments that just brought you so much joy.
When you'd turn on the TV Guide Channel and immediately catch the exact channel you were looking for.
Not having to wait for it to scroll all the way through! 🙌
When you'd call your BFF or crush on their home phone and they'd answer instead of their siblings or, worse yet, parents.
It was bliss NOT having to make awkward conversation.
When you were able to tape a song off the radio without the DJ cutting it off...
Bonus if you didn't need to listen to the radio all day to record it.
...or when you'd download a song and get a clean MP3 that wasn't a fake or a terrible radio rip.

Michael Phelps Reaches Out to Ryan Lochte Over Rio Robbery Scandal: ‘I Know What It Feels Like’
"I know what it feels like and I’ve been through it before"
Michael Phelps empathized with Ryan Lochte in a new interview Monday and said he hopes his U.S. Olympic swimming teammate will learn and “grow” from the international spectacle he sparked after telling an “overexaggerated” tale about being robbed in Rio.
Phelps, the most decorated Olympic competitor with 28 medals, told the Today show that he has experienced similar backlash as Lochte, who has been mired in controversy since Brazilian authorities say he made up a story about being robbed at gunpoint after vandalizing a gas station.
“It’s always hard to see a friend and competitor go through a hard time like this. I know what it feels like and I’ve been through it before,” Phelps said. “Hopefully, he can come out of this a better person. I’ve reached out to him a couple of times. I think he understands a lot and he will be able to grow from this.”
Phelps, who is now a father, made a comeback during this summer’s Olympic games after he had to go to rehab following a DUI. Lochte faces charges in Brazil over filing a false robbery report.
