Wellington Police Department with the DEA to hold Drug Take Back Day on April 26

first_imgSubmitted to Sumner Newscow — On April 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Wellington Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its eighth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  Bring your pills for disposal to the Wellington Police Department, located at 200 North “C” Street, #100.  The Wellington Police and DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.Last October, Americans turned in 324 tons (over 647,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at over 4,114 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners.  When those results are combined with what was collected in its seven previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 3.4 million pounds—more than 1,700 tons—of pills.  This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.DEA is in the process of approving new regulations that implement the Safe and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” (that is, a patient or their family member or pet owner) of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them.  The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances.last_img read more

FanDuel NFL Playoffs DFS Picks: Lineup advice for Wild Card Weekend GPP tournaments

first_imgNFL Wild Card Weekend challenges us in putting together daily fantasy football lineups because of the small slate of four games. On FanDuel, the QB pricing is such that it almost doesn’t matter who you pick because they’re so tightly bunched. That means that to win a DFS tournament in the first round of the playoffs, you’ll want to pick the right passing stack and nail your RB selections.For this tournament lineup, the stack we’ve chosen is Houston, bringing in Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, and Kenny Stills against Buffalo. Playing Hopkins means we fade Michael Thomas and instead play both Alvin Kamara and Derrick Henry, who should provide good floor/ceiling combos at the RB position. TE Taysom Hill, Saints vs. Vikings ($5,200). We’re still psyched that FanDuel lets Hill be a tight end, and he’s basically guaranteed touches at what’s a relative value price.FLEX Derrick Henry, Titans @ Patriots ($9,300). I’m not gonna let myself be scared away by what looks like a tough matchup on paper. Henry is simply too good and will get too many carries to think he’ll be anything but great.D/ST Seattle Seahawks @ Eagles ($3,600). Maybe Seattle proves that the NFC East was really as bad as some think and stomps all over the Eagles.\ MORE FD LINEUPS: Saturday games | Sunday games | Single gamesNFL DFS Wild Card Weekend: FanDuel GPP PicksQB Deshaun Watson, Texans vs. Bills ($8,100). The Buffalo defense has had a number of high points this season, but Watson is talented to the point that he could have a monster game against basically any opponent at any time. A home playoff game seems as good a time as any.RB Marshawn Lynch, Seahawks @ Eagles ($5,900). I’m going to have Beast Mode all over the place in my lineups this weekend — he’s simply going to have to be someone Seattle relies upon for double-digit carries (like in Week 17) to win games.RB Alvin Kamara, Saints vs. Vikings ($8,200). This lineup fades Michael Thomas and instead takes Kamara from the Saints offense. After ending his touchdown drought and scoring twice in back-to-back weeks, the hope here is that Kamara again is the one finding the end zone.MORE WILD CARD WEEKEND LINEUPS: Yahoo | DraftKingsWR DeAndre Hopkins, Texans vs. Bills ($8,300). Hopkins faces off with Tre’Davious White but is still too obvious of a stack candidate with Watson to avoid.WR Kenny Stills, Texans vs. Bills ($5,600). With Will Fuller V likely out again, Stills should heal up and be the No. 2 WR for Watson and the Texans. That’s a spot that might benefit him away from the White shadowing.WR Greg Ward, Eagles vs. Seahawks ($5,600). We have the Seattle defense, yes, but Ward should do most of his damage over the middle of the field and away from the end zone, meaning both can have solid games.last_img read more
