- 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.

- How President Trump Complicated The Sale Of His Most Lucrative Overseas Property
By Marcus Baram - Tuesday Oct 3, 2017
The president’s polarizing personality made it more challenging to sell the Ocean Club in Panama since some potential buyers were offended by him, says a broker on the deal.
Donald Trump’s polarizing personality and presidential candidacy complicated the recent sale of the Trump Organization’s most lucrative overseas property, the Ocean Club in Panama City, Panama, according to real estate professionals familiar with the deal. The majority interest in the 369-unit luxury resort was sold in August by developer Newland International Properties to Ithaca Capital Investments in a $24.5 million deal that had to be approved by the Trump Organization, currently led by Trump’s oldest sons, Donald Jr. and Eric. (None of those proceeds went to the Trump Organization, which collects licensing fees and hotel management fees on the property, say brokers.)
