    Allergan Counts The Ways It Hates That Which Bill Ackman Loves

    The Botox-maker would like to reiterate that Valeant doesn’t just need a facelift: It needs to be euthanized so that real pharmaceutical companies can make money the old-fashioned way, by repurposing deadly pathogens and marketing them to insecure women.

    Bill Ackman On Good Poison Pills, Bad Poison Pills and Things That Are Definitely Not Front-Running

    Bill Ackman is pretty good at waiting. He waited more than a year for JC Penney to see the light and hire the guy he wanted as CEO, and then another year-and-a-half for that guy to fail spectacularly and saddle him with a half-billion dollar loss.

    You Don’t Have To Look Like That If You Don’t Want To

    Have the past several years wreaked havoc on your looks? Is your face starting to look like an old catcher’s mitt? Do you wake up with new wrinkles every day? Do you stare into the mirror and wonder who the old, haggard looking man staring back is? Does it look like a bag lady has taken up residence under your eyes?

Do you want to do something about it, something involving a doctor’s office and needles, but are afraid of what people might think? Don’t be!
