Study Reveals Top Ten Violence Linked Prescription Drugs CONSUMER BEWARE

Study reveals top ten violence-inducing prescription drugs


___________________________________________________________________________ 
Ethan A. Huff
Natural News
January 16, 2011

(NaturalNews) The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) recently published a study in the journal PLoS One highlighting the worst prescription drug offenders that cause patients to become violent. Among the top-ten most dangerous are the antidepressants Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), Paxil (paroxetine) and Prozac (fluoxetine).
Concerns about the extreme negative side effects of many popular antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs have been on the rise, as these drugs not only cause severe health problems to users, but also pose a significant threat to society. The ISMP report indicates that, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting System, many popular drugs are linked even to homicides.
Most of the drugs in the top ten most dangerous are antidepressants, but also included are an insomnia medication, an attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drug, a malaria drug and an anti-smoking medication.
As reported in Time, the top ten list is as follows:
10. Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) – An antidepressant that affects serotonin and noradrenaline. The drug is 7.9 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.
9. Venlafaxine (Effexor) – An antidepressant that treats anxiety disorders. The drug is 8.3 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.
8. Fluvoxamine (Luvox) – A selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drug that is 8.4 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.
7. Triazolam (Halcion) – A benzodiazepine drug for insomnia that is 8.7 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.
6. Atomoxetine (Strattera) – An ADHD drug that is 9 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.
5. Mefoquine (Lariam) – A malaria drug that is 9.5 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.
4. Amphetamines – This general class of ADHD drug is 9.6 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.
3. Paroxetine (Paxil) – An SSRI antidepressant drug that is 10.3 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs. It is also linked to severe withdrawal symptoms and birth defects.
2. Fluoxetine (Prozac) – A popular SSRI antidepressant drug that is 10.9 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.
1. Varenicline (Chantix) – An anti-smoking drug that is a shocking 18 times more likely to be associated with violence than other drugs.

Missouri Tigers trounce Kansas State 75-59

__________________________________________________________________________

January 17, 2011 - Missouri guard Matt Pressey tries to pass to a teammate while being defended by Kansas State forward Jamar Samuels in first half action during a game between Missouri and Kansas State at Mizzou Arena in Columbia, Mo.
__________________________________________________________________________
by VAHE GREGORIAN www.STLtoday.com 
Monday, January 17, 2011

Rebounding from a 91-89 overtime loss Saturday at Texas A&M, 13th-ranked Mizzou stormed to a 15-point halftime lead and rebuffed a Kansas State comeback before trampling the Wildcats 75-59 on Monday at Mizzou Arena.
Sparked by freshman guard Phil Pressey's 13 points, four steals and three assists, MU improved to 16-3 overall and 2-2 in Big 12 play as the Wildcats fell to 13-6 and 1-3 in a season in which they were picked to win the Big 12.
K-State cut Mizzou's lead to 58-55 midway through the second half, but the Tigers unleashed a 12-0 run capped by Pressey's lob to Laurence Bowers to wedge a stake into Kansas State.
Before a sellout crowd of 15,061, four Tigers joined Pressey in double figures: Marcus Denmon had 14, and Ricardo Ratliffe, Kim English and Bowers added 10 apiece. The Tigers forced 24 turnovers and held the Wildcats to 42.6 percent (20-47) from the field.

NPR


First of an ongoing series
Until March, Casaundra Bronner, 39, worked for one of the largest and certainly the most famous employers in St. Louis — Anheuser-Busch.
Bronner had been there for 11 years, working her way up to a marketing manager job.
"My last position, I really enjoyed it," says Bronner. "[The layoff was] like a rug taken from under me."
She was among hundreds the company laid off.
Nationwide, there are more than 14 million people out of work, and most economists say it will be years before the country returns to full employment. In terms of the labor market and the unemployment rate, St. Louis, Mo., is very similar to rest of the nation.
Over the next year, NPR will follow Bronner and five others who live in the greater St. Louis area who are currently unemployed as they search for work.
Bronner never thought it would take so long to find a new job. Her search has already spanned nine months and it's taking a financial and emotional toll for Bronner — a single mother with two daughters in elementary school.
"It's difficult because I'm what they have," she says. Her daughters ask why she can't buy them the things she used to be able to.
 There is one central goal for each of the St. Louis area residents NPR is following — to work.

Scientists Warn Winter 'Superstorm' Could Strike California, Last Happened 1861-62 VIDEO Called the ARkStorm Scenario

___________________________________________________________________________

Called the ARkStorm Scenario

CLICK HERE FOR U.S. Geological Survey Report
___________________________________________________________________________

A group of more than 100 scientists and experts say in a new report that California faces the risk of a massive "superstorm" that could flood a quarter of the state's homes and cause $300 billion to $400 billion in damage. Researchers point out that the potential scale of destruction in this storm scenario is four or five times the amount of damage that could be wrought by a major earthquake.
It sounds like the plot of an apocalyptic action movie, but scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey warned federal and state emergency officials that California's geological history shows such "superstorms" have happened in the past, and should be added to the long list of natural disasters to worry about in the Golden State.
The threat of a cataclysmic California storm has been dormant for the past 150 years. Geological Survey director Marcia K. McNutt told the New York Times that a 300-mile stretch of the Central Valley was inundated from 1861-62. The floods were so bad that the state capital had to be moved to San Francisco, and Governor Leland Stanford had to take a rowboat to his own inauguration, the report notes. Even larger storms happened in past centuries, over the dates 212, 440, 603, 1029, 1418, and 1605, according to geological evidence.

The risk is gathering momentum now, scientists say, due to rising temperatures in the atmosphere, which has generally made weather patterns more volatile.
The scientists built a model that showed a storm could last for more than 40 days and dump 10 feet of water on the state. The storm would be goaded on by an "atmospheric river" that would move water "at the same rate as 50 Mississippis discharging water into the Gulf of Mexico," according to the AP. Winds could reach 125 miles per hour, and landslides could compound the damage, the report notes.
Such a superstorm is hypothetical but not improbable, climate researchers warn. "We think this event happens once every 100 or 200 years or so, which puts it in the same category as our big San Andreas earthquakes," Geological Survey scientist Lucy Jones said in a press release.

Missouri Law Makers Debate Tax Break for Small Businesses

___________________________________________________________________________

Tax break for small businesses on agenda of Missouri Legislature

___________________________________________________________________________
BY VIRGINIA YOUNG  www.STLtoday.com
January 16, 2011

Small businesses often get left out when tax breaks are given out. That's the thinking behind the first bill up for debate in the Missouri House this week. The plan would give small businesses a $10,000 tax deduction for every new job they created that paid at least the county's average wage. The deduction would double if the firm also offered health insurance and paid at least half the employee's premium.
Businesses employing fewer than 50 full- or part-time employees would be eligible.
Republicans, who enjoy a commanding 106-57 majority in the House, have made the bill a top priority. In addition to the tax break, it contains Speaker Steve Tilley's proposal to extend a ban on new state rules and increased user fees for small businesses.
Under the bill, eligible businesses could claim the deduction for each new full-time job created in a tax year, starting Jan. 1, 2011. If a business creates a job in 2011, for example, it could claim the deduction in its 2011 tax return. This special deduction would be available for four years, expiring on Dec. 31, 2014.

Martin Luther King Day 2011: 10 memorable MLK quotes - VIDEO I Have a Dream

___________________________________________________________________________

Today, Jan 17, 2011, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States. The civil rights leader was also one of the most famed orators in American history. Here are a collection of 10 MLK quotes.

___________________________________________________________________________

10. 'Cruel irony'

“We have been repeatedly faced with a cruel irony of watching Negro and white boys on TV screens as they kill and die together for a nation that has been unable to seat them together in the same school room.” –Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam
King connected war with the fight against poverty, complaining that the government, by far, spent more money on the military than on anti-poverty programs. “It is estimated that we spend $500,000 to kill each enemy soldier, while we spend only $53 for each person classified as poor,” King said in the speech, delivered on April 30, 1967, in Atlanta.

9. 'Brothers'

“The good neighbor looks beyond the external accidents and discerns those inner qualities that make all men human and, therefore, brothers." –Strength to Love
King emphasized the link between all of humanity, which he used as a rationale to end both discrimination at home and the war in Vietnam.

8. 'Something he will die for...'

“I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to live.” –Detroit
Two months before King delivered the “I Have a Dream” speech, he addressed thousands of activists after a march on Detroit on June 23, 1963. The speech contained a similar refrain that would make “I Have a Dream,” iconic, though the latter had historical and Biblical references that were not present when he spoke in Detroit.

7. 'Highest respect for the law'

“I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.” –Letter from Birmingham Jail
The above passage was influenced by Henry David Thoreau’s essay “Civil Disobedience,” in which he argues that one should break unjust laws immediately, and be willing to accept the consequences. King noted in his autobiography that reading Thoreau’s essay as a college student introduced him to the idea of nonviolent resistance.

6. 'Injustice anywhere...'

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” –Letter from Birmingham Jail
King wrote the "Letter from Birmingham Jail" on April 16, 1963 after being jailed for taking part in nonviolent demonstrations around the city.

5. 'Let no man pull you low...'

“Let no man pull you low enough to hate him.” –Paul’s Letter to American Christians
In this sermon on Nov. 4, 1956, King adopted the voice of the Apostle Paul to imagine what the New Testament author would have said about American society. In King’s imaginary letter, Paul called on Americans to redouble efforts to help the poor, work for social equality, and come together as a nation. He also warned that America’s spiritual development had not kept pace with its amazing scientific strides, and urged people to concentrate on faith.

4. 'Hatred paralyzes life'

“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.” –Strength to Love
King believed that fear was the first step towards hate, and that that the nuclear arms race between the United States and Russia was fundamentally about fear. King worried this fear might eventually push the citizens of both states to hate each other.

3. 'The final word'

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” –Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech
When King learned he won the Nobel Peace Prize, he vowed to donate all $54,123 of the cash prize to the civil rights movement. He accepted the award on Dec. 10, 1964, on behalf of the civil rights movement, and noted that it was “profound recognition that nonviolence is the answer.”

2. 'The ultimate measure of a man'

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” –Strength to Love
"Strength to Love" is a collection of King’s sermons and speeches published in 1963, the same year he was named Time’s Man of the Year.


1. 'Hate cannot drive out hate'

'Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.' –Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community
At the height of his career, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King gave 450 speeches and traveled more than 325,000 miles per year. All told, his speeches and writings fill hundreds of pages, but it’s not all unique material. Throughout his career, Dr. King often reused lines in his speeches, including this one, which popped up in several places throughout the mid to late 1960s.

Wall Street Bankrolled Mortgage Meltdown, Center for Public Integrity review


_________________________________________________________________________________

Wall Street, Not Fannie and Freddie, Led Mortgage Meltdown

_________________________________________________________________________________
Michael Hudson Michael Hudson Mon Jan 17, 2011news.yahoo.com - The Daily Beast

Mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been cast as the major villains of the financial crisis, but Michael Hudson reports that Wall Street firms were the prime offenders.
Ask many Americans who’s to blame for the nation’s economic mess, and two names come to mind: Fannie and Freddie.
They see Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as the villains of the financial crisis.
GOP.gov, the official website for Republicans in the House of Representatives, says flatly: “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were the main cause of the nation’s current financial turmoil.” Many critics, including Republican appointees to the federal Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, blame the two government-chartered mortgage underwriters for pushing lenders to make riskier loans and leading the way into the financial crash.
There’s a problem with this narrative: The numbers tell a different story, a Center for Public Integrity review finds.
The evidence indicates Fannie and Freddie contributed to the mortgage meltdown, but they played a secondary role to Wall Street. Wall Street firms and the mortgage lenders they bankrolled led the growth of the market for subprime loans and other risky mortgages.
Government data show Fannie and Freddie didn’t take the same risks that Wall Street’s mortgage-backed securities machine did. Mortgages financed by Wall Street from 2001 to 2008 were 4½ times more likely to be seriously delinquent than mortgages backed by Fannie and Freddie.
Tagging Fannie and Freddie as the primary suspects in the mortgage debacle diverts attention from bigger offenders and from policy decisions that helped create the climate for out-of-control lending.
Some 6 percent of Fannie- and Freddie-sponsored loans made during that span were 90 days late at some point in their history, according to Fannie and Freddie’s regulator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency. By contrast, the FHFA says, roughly 27 percent of loans that Wall Street folded into mortgage-backed investments were at least 90 days late at some point.

Ricky Gervais Bombs with Cheap Pot Shots at Golden Globes Awards 2011 - VIDEO Monologue


__________________________________________________________________________________

Ricky Gervais too funny for Hollywood

__________________________________________________________________________________
By Tim Goodman 

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – "I warned them." Returning Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais did indeed let it be known that he wasn't going to hold back in skewering Hollywood's most famous celebrities. And, in what will undoubtedly be his last hosting gig for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (and, who knows, maybe any Stateside awards) he didn't disappoint.
But in the process of making searingly funny jokes at more than just the obvious targets (Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, the HFPA itself), the heat he put into the punch lines might have made him more of the story than the actual winners.
And yet, it made for compelling -- if sometimes wince-inducing -- television. Given the staid lameness of most awards shows -- hello, Emmys -- at least he kept those who are not in the industry laughing uproariously. (His "I warned them" line came after a particularly funny joke about Hugh Hefner's new fiancee, complete with physical comedy and facial expressions).
Gervais' biting lines were scattered at various stars (and movies like The Tourist), with not everyone taking kindly to the treatment. Bruce Willis seemed miffed to be called the father of Ashton Kutcher, Robert Downey Jr. seemed to take slight umbrage about his rehab past (before going into his own salacious and super speech), etc. Even when the jokes weren't directed at them, some stars took gentle swipes back, as when Tom Hanks, who just received a rave recitation of his career achievement from Gervais, protected Tim Allen, who received none.
Gervais's jokes were so incendiary that when he went missing during the second half of the show, the Twitterverse lit up with suggestions that he'd been fired backstage. Clearly, Gervais had done so much damage entertaining the viewers at home (or appalling them, depending on their belief in decorum), that he became the story of the night.

Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Condition Upgraded from Critical to Serious


_________________________________________________________________________________

Giffords Improves As Shooting Investigation Continues

_________________________________________________________________________________ .
January 17, 2011
by Jeff Brady  NPR

Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' condition has been upgraded from critical to serious, primarily because she was taken off a ventilator over the weekend and is breathing on her own.
Surgeons performed a tracheotomy on Saturday and inserted a feeding tube. Doctors say her recovery is still going well, considering her injuries. Two other shooting victims remain in the hospital in good condition.
Meanwhile, the investigation continues into what motivated a gunman to shoot 19 people — killing six of them. Jared Loughner, the 22-year-old accused shooter, is in federal custody and faces charges that include killing federal employees and trying to assassinate a member of Congress.
The Washington Post is reporting the federal trial will be moved to San Diego because of pre-trial publicity. But in a written statement, the Justice Department says it plans to bring the case in Arizona and will oppose any change of venue motions.
Pima County Sheriff's spokesman Jason Ogan says federal agents have control of the evidence now. But there is still the matter of state charges that could be filed against Loughner.

I am concerned about the current sense of apathy that appears to be growing within the U.S. right now.    
That is why I feel compelled to remind anyone reading this, that it is our DUTY as U.S. Citizens to inform the powers that be;
'We The People' shall hold them accountable if they do not treat ALL of our 'Service Men & Women' with the Dignity & Respect they so rightly deserve!
I believe it is, Our Responsibility to the Military Service Men & Women, both Past & Present, that have and are now Serving, 
that we not forget them!


So with that in mind and spirit lets start:

Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world,
but the Marines don't have that problem.
--Ronald Reagan--


"The nation which forgets its defenders will be itself forgotten."

Poor Richard,

Thanks for posting this Prayer Chain Letter! Please add my thoughts and prayers for the safety and well-being of all now serving in the United States military. On this day of remembrance, I particularly remember my deceased father who served as an Army Medic during WWII. Some of his WWII veteran buddies still reside here in Hermann. I recall that my father never liked to talk about the horrible things he saw in North Africa and Italy. As a kid, I sensed that reluctance to talk about war among all of his V.F.W. friends. They were indeed America's "Greatest Generation"! God bless them all for keeping the world free for democracy! And God bless all of our brave young servicemen and servicewomen for following faithfully in their fine American tradition!

Scott Bringhurst
added this back-story to his video;
"One small story from the video . . . towards the end, there's a photo of a young man surrounded by photographs and letters (a few of the pictures are of B-24 Liberators). This young man was lost with his entire crew while flying in a B-24 ...over the Atlantic. I bought his training yearbook, which included all of these photos of his family, friends and girlfriend. Also in the book were signed letters of condolence from his squadron mates, his squadron commander, the mayor of St. Louis and Hap Arnold, CIC of the Army Air Force. The back of the book was filled with news clippings about his death. Sad . . . what's sadder is that I found this in a BOX OF JUNK at a consignment auction. How this ends up almost being thrown on the rubbish pile is a shame. Either his family didn't care, didn't know it was there or . . . there is no family. I am happy to have preserved his memory. I won't sell this item. Just look at that kid's face. He WAS just a KID. I thank him and people like him every day."

.
Note from Poor Richard 2011: In my correspondence with Scott he informed me that the things he witnessed during his 'Tour of Duty' effected him & his view of the world profoundly!!!

Poor Richard says...This is why it so important that we never forget...

Lyrics:


People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is the final day
What's the future of mankind
How do I know, I got left behind


Everyone goes through changes
Looking to find the truth
Don't look at me for answers
Don't ask me
I don't know


How am I supposed to know
Hidden meanings that will never show
Fools and prophets from the past
Life's a stage and we're all in the cast


Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right,
Asking me who to follow, don't ask me,
I don't know,
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know


Nobody ever told me I found out for myself
Ya gotta believe in foolish miracles
It's not how you play the game
It's if you win or lose you can choose
Don't confuse win or lose, it's up to you
It's up to you - it's up to you - it's up to you


People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is the final day
What's the future of mankind
How do I know, I got left behind


Everyone goes through changes
Looking to find the truth
Don't look at me for answers
Don't ask me
I don't know


How am I supposed to know
Hidden meanings that will never show
Fools and prophets from the past
Life's a stage and we're all in the cast


Ya gotta believe in someone asking me who is right,
Asking me who to follow, don't ask me,
I don't know,
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
