Viacom Inc. to Pay $12.5B to Buy CBS All Access for $11.8B

ViacOM, Inc. (CBS) announced Wednesday it will pay $12,500 a share for CBS All-Access for $19.8 billion in cash and stock.

Viacoms shares fell about 3.3 percent in premarket trading.

The deal was completed during a meeting in New York on Tuesday between Viacomm CEO Philippe Dauman and CBS chief executive Les Moonves.

Viacom, the largest TV and entertainment company in the U.S., owns CBS and Showtime, among other channels.

Moonves had told Dauman he would sell off a lot of CBS properties and the two sides worked out a deal that will allow Viacomo to pay for CBS for a shorter period of time.

Moonkes’ deal with CBS will expire after 2020.

The transaction will create the world’s third-largest pay-TV company after Disney and Time Warner.VIA Media Group, which owns the CBS broadcast network, said it would pay $4.4 billion in stock, which includes $4 billion from CBS, to be paid out over the next five years.

VIA Media’s board will also receive $4 million in stock.CBS said Viacomed will pay the cash, but it won’t receive any cash.

The company said the transaction will result in a net cash flow of $9.5 billion for the company.

Viasa, Viacamerica, which also owns CBS, CBS Interactive and other networks, said VIA will pay an additional $4,200 a share to cover the transaction.

Viament, Viasa and Viament are all owned by France-based Viacome.

Viaments chief executive, Christian Bacher, said in a statement the deal is a landmark moment in the history of the television industry and he’s delighted to be part of it.

“Viacomm and CBS share a common mission and shared vision to continue to deliver original content and programming across all platforms.

We look forward to a successful partnership, and look forward with the continued support of our shareholders and partners,” he said.

Why are some people getting sick with bugs and others getting sicker?

LIONEL GARCIA/REUTERS There are so many reasons that people get sick from a bug.

For some, it’s a mild illness that’s gone unnoticed, like a cold.

But for others, it can be fatal. 

For instance, a new study suggests that people who have Lyme disease have a higher risk of dying than people who don’t have it.

That finding could help inform how the disease is treated, and could ultimately save lives.

The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, looked at more than 7,000 people with Lyme disease in four U.S. cities over a period of more than a decade.

The researchers found that those who had Lyme disease were more likely to be hospitalized for more than six weeks than the non-infected group.

The risk of death was higher in the Lyme-negative group than in the healthy controls.

That could be due to a number of factors, including higher rates of hospitalization among those who develop Lyme disease.

The authors said that the data they gathered suggests that Lyme disease may be linked to higher rates and longer hospitalization rates, which could mean a greater need for medical care. 

In their study, researchers looked at hospitalizations for about 2,000 of the participants with Lyme, and compared the rates of people who had been treated with antibiotics versus those who didn’t.

The results were stark.

The infection rate for people with untreated Lyme disease was about twice as high as it was for the healthy people in the study, the researchers found. 

But the researchers also found that people with a history of Lyme disease tended to have a lower rate of hospitalizations, which the researchers speculated could be related to the type of antibiotic used to treat Lyme disease and the way the disease spreads. 

“There are so few studies on the impact of Lyme-associated infection on mortality,” said lead author Lillian J. DeLuca, a professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Washington.

“We found that when people have a history, that can be a significant predictor of survival.

It’s very hard to tease out why, but we think it’s related to infection risk and to the course of the disease.” 

The study’s findings could have implications for treating patients, who are often treated with a different type of medicine than those with Lyme. 

Researchers say it’s important to remember that the symptoms of Lyme are different from the symptoms people typically experience with the disease.

In addition, some people may not have symptoms at all, and others might have mild or severe symptoms. 

Still, DeLucas stressed that people should be able to choose their own antibiotics. 

People should be informed about their risk for developing Lyme disease, DeMarcus said.

“When people are asked questions like, ‘Is it possible to get Lyme disease?’ and, ‘Do you know if it’s Lyme or not?’ that’s a question that’s more relevant than it ever has been,” DeLucia said. 

DeMarcus also emphasized that the study was limited by the small sample size, and that the results should not be taken as evidence that people shouldn’t take any steps to prevent Lyme disease infections. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has urged people to get vaccinated if they have symptoms of any of the three infections.

‘Pokémon Go’ to be free for Android users

Microsoft is expected to unveil a new “Pokémon Go” app on Android this week, according to an internal memo seen by The American Conservatives.

“The Pokémon Go app is coming,” a Microsoft employee wrote.

“We can’t tell you when it will launch, but we’re excited about it.”

Microsoft is currently using the word “coming” to describe the “Pokémon GO” app, but The American Conservator reports the company may be looking to “launch it as soon as next week” according to the memo.

The app has not yet been officially released.

Microsoft’s move to make the app free was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

The “Pokémon” game uses a real-world augmented reality app called “Pokemon Go,” which is currently available for iOS and Android devices.

Microsoft is also rumored to be planning to make its own “Pokémon Play” app for Windows 10 PCs.

The company did not respond to The American Council on Science and Technology’s request for comment.

Microsoft will be unveiling its “Pokémon,” “Pokemon Trainer” and “Pokémon Gold and Silver” apps on Wednesday at an event in New York City.

Microsoft previously announced its “Pokemon GO” apps will be free until the end of the year.

The Pokémon GO app is currently free on Android devices and has been available for a few months.

Google has said the app is free until September 10.

Microsoft has not released any official word about its plans for the new app.
