FDA Launches “Remove the Risk” Campaign for Safe Opioid Removal

In 2017, retail pharmacies dispensed more than 191 million opioid prescriptions to almost 60 million patients, according to a press release by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  And as many as 90% of these patients reported not finishing what was prescribed to them – potentially leaving millions of unused prescription opioids in medicine cabinets and elsewhere in US homes.  Perhaps unsurprisingly, 47,600 people died from an overdose involving opioids that same year. “Far too many Americans, both teens and adults, are gaining access to opioids for the first time from the medicine cabinets of their parents, relatives and friends,” said Douglas Throckmorton, M.D., deputy director of regulatory programs in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.  “Millions of un...

How to Unplug Your Kids Tech Addiction

“Can’t DM right now, I’m texting.” Photo: Fabio Principe (Shutterstock)The global pandemic has changed the world on a macro level, but it has also reshaped the microcosm of our family routines. Once, screen time was a special treat for my kids, saved for weekends and movie nights. Oh, but then all the schools closed. And the daycares. And the summer camps. Suddenly, screens became school, or vice versa, and the days got a hell of a lot longer.My daughter has been surprisingly okay with this. While she misses her teachers and the classroom environment, it turns out she really likes doing her schoolwork on the computer. And chatting with her friends on Zoom. And staying in touch using Messenger Kids. And YouTube. Oh, YouTube.To put it another way, my 8-year-old is now a tech addict, like her...

Everyone in my family now looks forward to game night thanks to Jackbox

Source: Jeramy Johnson / Android Central If the past few months of social distancing and quarantine have taught this introvert anything, it's that I really miss get-togethers with friends and family. Even silly things like Friday night trivia at a local bar or playing Cards Against Humanity with friends in the neighborhood sound like extravagant getaways to me right now. My family has been pretty good about making time for fun when we can during this gloomy period, and we've even cracked open the occasional old board game like Monopoly or Sorry a few times. Still, as classic as those games are, they've just become tired. Since we've all been cooped up working from home or preparing for final exams, we just want something fun, fresh, and not overly mentally taxing to entertain us. Thankful...

Opinion: Donald Trumps heartless week

This week the question of presidential compassion was a consistent storyline. We saw a President who slammed the Supreme Court for blocking his effort to subject 650,000 Dreamers to deportation. He also bemoaned the court's historic ruling Monday that LGBTQ people can't be fired because of their sexuality. His former national security adviser John Bolton claimed in a book excerpt that Trump had encouraged China's leader to set up concentration camps for the Uyghur minority. He plowed ahead with a non-socially distanced rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, even as coronavirus cases mounted. In a private meeting with the families of Black victims, though, Trump was "very compassionate," according to the mother of Ahmaud Arbery, who was shot to death while jogging in Georgia. But in his public remarks...

TV cops know their job is changing. Some are more ready than others.

TV cops know their job is changing. Some are more ready than others.

Cops on television have a duty. Yes, actors report to dressing rooms and not crime scenes — and sure, they stop protecting and serving the moment their directors yell “cut.” But for hundreds of millions of viewers around the globe, these “officers” are trusted guides to understanding American justice, which they roll out as an action-packed, morally-right freight train night after night. Only now, it might be coming off the rails. As protests against police brutality and systemic racism continue across the United States, TV cops and their fictional precincts have come under fire. From half-joking cries to defund the PAW Patrol to serious reflections on Hollywood’s historic whiteness, entertainment fans and professionals are using their platforms to amplify the Black Lives Matter movement. ...
