- Report reveals underground US haven for heroin, drug users
By MIKE STOBBE, AP Medical Writer - Tuesday Aug 8, 2017
None were known to exist in the U.S. until the disclosure in a medical journal, although several states and cities are pushing to establish these so-called supervised injection sites where users can shoot up under the care of trained staff who can treat an overdose if necessary.More than 52,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2015 — the most ever — fueled by soaring abuse of heroin and prescription painkillers.Some say the new report could have an impact on efforts to establish safe injection sites around the U.S. Such sites have been backed by lawmakers in New York, California and other states, along with officials in cities like Seattle, San Francisco and Ithaca, New York.Injection sites are legal in countries including Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Switzerland where medical professionals monitor drug users.The study also didn't look at issues opponents worry about, like whether creation of a safe place is associated with an increase in people beginning to try drugs, said Jonathan Caulkins, a drug policy expert at Carnegie Mellon University who nonetheless applauded the organization's effort to try to stop overdose deaths.
- Science Says: Solar specs needed for safe viewing of eclipse
By MARCIA DUNN, AP Aerospace Writer - Thursday Aug 10, 2017
(AP) — With the total solar eclipse right around the cosmic corner, eye doctors are going into nagging overdrive.[...] if you don't use that protection, you'll be paying for it for the rest of your life, says Dr. Paul Sternberg, director of the Vanderbilt Eye Institute in Nashville, smack dab in the middle of the total eclipse path.[...] it's important to know exactly where you are on eclipse day in relation to that path of totality, advises Dr. B. Ralph Chou, a retired professor of optometry at the University of Waterloo in Ontario who is also an astronomer and eclipse chaser.Or you can look indirectly with a pinhole projector — homemade will do, crafted from a shoebox, or grab a kitchen colander — that casts images of the eclipsed sun onto a screen at least 3 feet away.Worried about potentially dangerous knockoffs, NASA, the American Astronomical Society and others are urging eclipse watchers to stick with reputable makers of sun-gazing devices.Chou collected and studied 20 reports of temporary eye injuries following a 1979 total solar eclipse that included Canada.In 1999, British doctors reported 70 cases of temporary eye damage following a full solar eclipse.Chou stresses that outside the path of totality, where there's only a partial eclipse, "it's never safe to take the filters off."
