Drug dealer Virgil Sollozzo is looking for Mafia Families to offer him protection in exchange for a profit of the drug money. He approaches Don Corleone about it, but, much against the advice of the Don’s lawyer Tom Hagen, the Don is morally against the use of drugs, and turns down the offer. This does not please Sollozzo, who has the Don shot down by some of his hit men. The Don barely survives, which leads his son Michael to begin a violent mob war against Sollozzo and tears the Corleone family apart.

  4. 4. Pfizer Annual Report 2012 | Front cover and DPS | 2 days Chantix Most people who smoke want to quit, and for good reason. Reliable estimates say that smoking-related illnesses kill more than 5 million people around the world each year. At the time of its approval in 2008, Chantix (marketed outside the U.S. as Champix) was the first prescription smoking cessation medicine to be approved in 10 years. A non nicotine-based pharmaceutical, Chantix is proven more effective in helping smokers quit than its leading competitor in the prescription-only market. In the U.S., Pfizer offers the GETQUIT Plan for free with a Chantix prescription. This tailored, 52-week, Web and phone-based behavior modification program helps patients prepare for a ife without cigarettes. It provides ongoing support with a hotline staffed with Mayo Clinic-trained Quit Coaches and daily support during the first 12 weeks to help smokers learn how to trade old smoking routines for new and healthier habits. 10 MILLION - Approximate number of people globally prescribed Chantix since its approval “I started taking Chantix thinking that it wasn’t going to work and that I’d prove my doctor wrong. But I ended up throwing my cigarettes away and I haven’t looked back since.” Stacy Berenbaum, New York 09 10 Pfizer-Wyeth will build a more diversified company The proposed combination of Pfizer and Wyeth addresses one of the largest concerns of Pfizer investors: the expected loss-of-exclusivity for Lipitor in 2011.

Restock Property Redevelopment | Concertina brochure - 8 pages | 2 days PROPERTY REDEVELOPMENT restock 225 E,Grand Avenue Chicago, IL 60611 Tel: 312 512 1313 Fax: 312 512 1314 jerry@restock.com www.restockchicago.com Jerry McCabe Chief Executive Our Story Having been based in New York and successfully built a mix of commercial and residential properties in and around the SoHo neighbourhood, Phoenix saw an opportunity to create the same dynamic in Chicago. Here, at Phoenix, we prefer to consider ourselves ‘environmentally responsible’. Location Our headquarters are based in Chicago's River North neighborhood. River North has completely transformed from it's simple beginning as an industrial area and warehouse district. The warehouses closed down in the 1970's, leaving large empty buildings. The area attracted various artists and writers looking for loft and studio space, thus creating a neighborhood that was artistic, but also struggling. Such was the River North neighborhood 30 years ago. Since then, however, it has grown into what is now a chic, cultural hub filled with art galleries, antique stores, boutiques and of course urban professionals. We felt this would be the most fitting environment for restock, as this represents who we are and what we do! “In the beginning there were factories that were not longer working. Yet we thought they were beautiful” What does environmental responsibility actually mean? It means reusing, instead of knocking down and building new. Keeping what’s good and improving what’s not. This uses less energy and leaves less mess than knocking down and building again. A place depends on the community that lives there and the people who work there. We fill the commercial spaces of our buildings with local businesses and independents, because we think they can do something a bit better than your average Mr Mega Coffee Hut. It’s all about creating something that’s lasting. Sustain-ability, you see, the clue is in the word. We don’t do short term. We don’t do cheap and cheerful. We want our places to keep working once the for-sale signs have gone down. It means making sure places can grow. We try to make sure our developments give something back, take less, last longer. We aim to prove that we can do it, and do it now. It just takes a little bit more imagination. All you have to do is move in. Mission Statement We wanted to restock them. We thought that they’d make good places to live, buildings with a bit of soul! We thought that we could make them into amazing homes with a bit of imagination and some top notch architecture. restock embraces a very wide agenda: established as world class architects we produce world class buildings and places; delivering mixed use buildings; marrying the old with the new; and finally and probably most importantly being environmentally responsible. We believe that there’s no conflict in being thoroughly modern and style- conscious while also being socially and environmentally responsible. In fact we think that one should inform the other. We design inspirational spaces, both commercial and residential. We want to create spaces for a new generation to make something worthwhile. Our Services Our expertise extends to every aspect of the real estate development process. We take care of the preparation and production of your entire project, working from your initial brief to take it through every stage to completion.
