first_img September 11, 2018 National Issues,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf delivered the following remarks as prepared at the 17th Annual September 11 Observance in Shanksville:Thank you all for being here as we remember those we lost 17 years ago today.Thank you to Governor Ridge, whose leadership in the days after 9/11 steadied our commonwealth.Thank you to Governor Schweiker, who I have the honor of introducing today and who provided necessary leadership after Governor Ridge went to help the country respond to the horrifying events of that day.Thank you to President Trump for joining us in Pennsylvania for this solemn remembrance.And thank you to the families, friends, loved ones who 17 years ago found their lives changed.We all owe a debt of gratitude to the family members who learned of the attacks happening in New York and Washington, and took decisive, heroic actions.Since I became governor, I have been honored to speak before you and offer what thanks I can on behalf of myself and the commonwealth for your sacrifice.This year, with the dedication of the Tower of Voices, there are new avenues of remembrance and new opportunities to reflect on the impossible sacrifices made in the skies above us.And where there has been unspeakable tragedy, the families whose loved ones were on that flight have built a place of aspiration, hope, and honor.Right here in Pennsylvania.We thank you for that.Each year all Pennsylvanians remember and honor your loved ones.We hail them as heroes and we recall their actions, and listen to their words.Hero is one of the most overused words in any language.We may bestow this title too frequently.But the people who found themselves on Flight 93, in the skies above us, are heroes.The first responders and everyday citizens that came to the crash site are heroes.And they all fit the definition in the most laudable way imaginable.They did not know who they were saving.They did not know where the plane would head or whose lives it may take.They only knew that their fellow Americans were at risk and they sacrificed everything for them.Their actions were heroic.Their sacrifice was patriotic.We all hope that faced with the same situation, we’d make the same choices.But it is no guarantee because the people on that flight we truly special, they were true heroes.And on behalf of all Pennsylvanians, I again give our deepest thanks and our most sincere gratitude.In the days following the attack, Pennsylvania was lucky to be led by individuals who rose to the challenge before them.They suddenly led a state that became a battlefield, in a country beset by distress, in a world sieged with fear.But where there was uncertainty, they led with strength.Where there was division, they led with empathy.Where there was fear, they led with compassion.Where there was cravenness, they led with courage.And while they awoke with the same fear, the worry for their families, children, wives, that we all had in the days following the attack, they were stoic and strong.And they helped all of us rebuild our structures and our confidence.Governors Ridge and Schweiker and their colleagues nationally set a path toward recovery.And their dedication to this very site has given thousands of visitors a means to remember true heroism and real patriotism.I thank both of them for their inspiration and service.And it is my honor to introduce Pennsylvania’s 44th governor, Governor Mark Schweiker.

Coroner calls for increase of alcohol purchasing age following death of drink-driving teen

first_imgStuff co.nz 5 December 2018Family First Comment: We lobbied for increasing the age – even released a report with the research evidence – when Parliament last messed this issue up…“There appears to be incontrovertible evidence of a direct link between the lowering of the alcohol purchasing age in 1999 and an increase in the incidence of injury and fatal accidents involving alcohol impaired drivers aged 15-19 years,” the coroner said.https://www.familyfirst.org.nz/research/young-people-and-alcohol/A coroner is urging the Government to raise the drinking age to 20 after the death of a 19-year-old drink driver.Blenheim butcher George Bernard Holland was killed in the early hours of August 6, 2017, when he failed to give way at a one-way bridge in Marlborough, colliding head-on with a heavy truck and trailer.Holland, who that night drank about 12 cans of Double Brown while on a “boys weekend” in Murchison, also had MDMA (ecstasy) and cannabis in his system.Coroner David Robinson said the crash could have been prevented if Holland adhered to the zero alcohol level for drivers under 20.In his findings, released on Wednesday, the coroner referred to extensive research in recommending the Government return the minimum alcohol purchase age to 20 with no exceptions.The alcohol purchase age was reduced in December 1999. One study, found “significantly” more alcohol-involved crashes amongst 15 to 19-year-olds in the four years following while a more recent study found the number of alcohol-related crashes in this age group  increased from 102 in 2014 to 142 in 2017.“There appears to be incontrovertible evidence of a direct link between the lowering of the alcohol purchasing age in 1999 and an increase in the incidence of injury and fatal accidents involving alcohol impaired drivers aged 15-19 years,” the coroner said.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/109067753/coroner-calls-for-increase-of-alcohol-purchasing-age-following-death-of-drinkdriving-teenKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Lionel Messi, Suarez return to training with the team at Camp Nou

first_imgBARCELONA: Barcelona captain Lionel Messi returned to training at Camp Nou with the rest of the team. Striker Luis Suarez also returned having fully recuperated from a knee injury for which he underwent surgery in January.Messi had trained indoors alone for a few days after picking up a reported leg injury. It was initially speculated to be a long term injury but Barcelona allayed the fears. “Barca captain Leo Messi has a minor right quadriceps injury and trained in isolation, doing specific exercises to avoid unnecessary risks with just eight days remaining before Barca finally get back to playing matches. He should be able to rejoin his teammates in a few days’ time,” said the Spanish champions earlier in a statement. “For tomorrow’s (Saturday) session the players will train again, but unusually, this session is going to be on the pitch in the Camp Nou as (manager Quique) Setien works to get his players ready for the return to football, but with games being played behind closed doors.” In their first match of the revamped LaLiga calendar, Barcelona will travel to Mallorca and Messi, along with his teammates, will feature for the first time since coronavirus pandemic stopped all football in the country in March.

To Be Blunt: A stoner’s guide to getting elevated without the buzz

first_imgAlthough it takes some experimentation to find the right dosage — and most likely getting too high while trying to do so — typical microdoses range from 2 to 5 milligrams of THC, while some with higher tolerances can go up to 10.  But cannabis doesn’t have to be strictly defined by one extreme or another. Microdosing — paired with observation, patience and responsible consumption — offers people the chance to benefit from cannabis use on a day-to-day basis without interfering with their personal or professional lives due to intoxication.  Aside from anxiety, preliminary studies on microdosing have indicated it can benefit people with depression, insomnia and chronic pain. A 2012 study published in The Journal of Pain concluded that patients with advanced cancer who were unresponsive to traditional painkillers showed the greatest reduction in pain when given the lowest dose of nabiximols, a compound with both THC and CBD, along with other cannabinoids. Patients who received the highest doses exhibited the greatest amount of pain. Microdosing can also offer people a proper introduction to cannabis, helping them build their tolerance to the substance over time. It can also be a new, creative way to return to cannabis after a period of abstinence.  Oftentimes, conversations around cannabis seem to exist at two diverging poles. At one end, people argue that cannabis is purely recreational, while others believe the substance is explicitly for medical use.  While microdosing has roots in LSD consumption, experts within the cannabis industry are finding that many people have a lower threshold for THC’s medical effects than previously thought. According to Leafly, a cannabis news and culture website, the low threshold is most likely a result of the biphasic nature of THC, whereby excessive consumption can actually produce directly opposing results. For people with anxiety, a group that has been shown to benefit from microdosing, consuming too much THC can actually worsen paranoia. CBD, a nonpsychoactive cannabis compound, can also be microdosed in tandem with THC via a 1:1 ratio to minimize the latter’s side effects, such as increased clumsiness and impaired thinking.  According to a 2017 study published by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Chicago, lower doses of THC produce stress-relieving effects similar to the ones cited by cannabis users in empirical research, while higher doses negatively impact stress. The randomized study, which tested 42 healthy volunteers, found that even though THC reduced stress more than a placebo, a mere 5-milligram increase from 7.5 to 12.5 milligrams of THC produced an inverse result. So how much weed does a person need if a person needs to microdose some weed?  However, some companies are beginning to catch on. KIVA Confections offers chocolate and mint edibles that start at 2.5 milligrams per dose. (I have to be very honest here, though, the one dark chocolate edible I tried from them tastes so bad. Like I-might-as-well-eat-actual-bud bad. And you have to really try to make chocolate edibles taste like weed, given the chemical compatibility of the two, as chocolate is supposed to mask the flavor of cannabis.) For regular cannabis users who want to hop on the microdosing trend, it is recommended to take a break from consumption for at least 48 hours, the designated time required for cannabinoid receptors in the body to return to baseline levels, thus reaching a tolerance that is receptive to lower doses.  While I can laugh about it now and it’s a painfully entertaining story to have available at kickbacks, I wish someone at that time had educated me on how to ease myself into cannabis. That’s where microdosing comes in.  For people without diagnosed conditions, microdosing can simply offer an avenue to relieve stress and improve mood. Since its application to weed, microdosing has also been a popular method of cannabis consumption among some clerical workers. Especially amid quarantine measures, some people are turning toward microdosing as a way to destress and take a break from workjob-related tasks. Microdosing is a relatively new method of cannabis consumption where users ingest low amounts of THC to reap its medical benefits without experiencing the psychoactive effects that tend to interfere with daily tasks. Given the relatively new and experiential science surrounding microdosing, there’s no one-size-fits-all dosage for everyone. Microdosing is a highly intricate process, requiring specific doses — dependent on one’s metabolism, unique endocannabinoid system, consumption method and previous cannabis use — and consistent monitoring of effects. (Arielle Chen | Daily Trojan) Now the tricky part: method of consumption. Although microdosing is gaining traction within the cannabis medical field and among users, the industry has lagged behind the trend. Many products do not lend themselves to easy microdosing, with the lowest dose for most edibles being 10 milligrams. Researchers recommend taking the same amount for two to three days while self-monitoring. If there are no noticeable effects, you can increase the dosage by 1 milligram, waiting the same time frame to observe any effects. Microdoses can be taken twice a day, once in the morning and evening, but as soon as you begin feeling high (I hate to break it to you) you’ve gone too far. Microdosing should result in a “body” high, producing increased relaxation and, according to some empirical evidence, even an increased focus. The other trouble with edibles is the wait time. For more immediate relief, you can try tinctures that, when applied under the tongue, can deliver effects within 15 minutes or controlled-dose dab pens, such as those from Dosist. If smoking is more up your alley, you can still use good old- fashioned joints to microdose by waiting five to 10 minutes for the effects after each puff. While the science behind microdosing is lacking, preliminary patient treatments indicate that continual low doses could potentially build up the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for responding to illnesses, injury and stress, by increasing cannabis sensitivity in the body over time. Overall, microdosing can be a simple yet effective way to improve physical and mental health. So the next time you try to get high and don’t, maybe it’s for the best. My edible horror story occurred when I was a senior in high school. What started as a 4/20 celebration and a last hurrah with my friends before we moved on to college ended with a terrifying trip (literally to Ralphs but also figuratively because I did, indeed, think I was dying), vomiting twice and a cannabis-induced coma-like sleep for more than 12 hours. For reference, I took about 33 milligrams of an indiscernible block of jelly. Yeah, I didn’t touch weed for months.  You never forget your first bad high — ever. By the time you’re in your 20s, you should have God knows what and a truly haunting — though in retrospect hilarious — edible story.  Natalie Oganesyan is a rising senior writing about weed culture and politics.
