In ‘Sober Houses,’ Heroin Addicts Learn to Help Themselves

0 In Sober Houses, Heroin Addicts Learn to Help ThemselvesThis is the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish

Tourists come to Zanzibar for its white sand beaches and historic buildings in Stone Town. But something else also makes its way to the Tanzanian island: heroin trafficked across the Indian Ocean from Asia. Most of the heroin shipped through East Africa is headed for Europe and North America. But Reychad Abdool of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime says a lot of it stays on the continent. “We know for a fact that heroin is being used in at least thirty countries in Africa. And we also know for a fact that the number of countries reporting injecting drug use, especially of heroin, is also increasing in Africa.” The problem in Zanzibar has led to some creative local solutions. Suleiman Mauly stopped using heroin six years ago. Now he operates a network of so-called sober houses. These are run by addicts themselves to help one another recover. There are nine sober houses — eight for men and one for women. Mr. Mauly himself went through a drug treatment program in Kenya. But it cost around two thousand dollars, he says. Staying in a sober house costs about one hundred dollars a month. Most of the people are supported by their families. Treatment is based on the idea that drug addiction is more of a public health problem than a crime. Mr. Mauly says this is still a new idea to many people. “Because addiction, it’s a disease, and addicts need treatment. But people, they hear that addicts are bad people and they need punishment.” He says in the sober houses, the addicts are in charge of nearly everything. “It’s a new method to Zanzibar. It’s a new phenomenon to East Africa, whereby drug addicts take responsibility to run the system.” This responsibility, he says, is important to building their belief in their own abilities. The men also learn woodworking as a way to earn money. Much of the program is based on the twelve-step program of Alcoholics Anonymous. But it also includes art therapy, yoga and even acupuncture. This is done by Kassim Nyuni, a sober house counselor and former addict. He was trained by a volunteer from a Chinese medical school in Hawaii. “It reduces tension, and it’s relaxing. It’s a kind of treatment that’s very effective for the recovering addicts.” Still, he estimates that around sixty percent of those in the program return to heroin. Suleiman Mauly hopes to expand the network in Zanzibar. His next goal is to send former addicts to work with heroin users in prisons. For VOA Special English, I’m Carolyn Presutti.

Can Ron Paul Save America 2012?

0 Can Ron Paul Save America 2012?I love America.
I love the American people.
The ones I love were before 2001.
Before America was taken over by the global elite.
Since then America is simply doing the bidding
of the global elite and banks.

War is a racket.
They fund both sides.

During World War 1, 10 per cent of the casualties were civilians.
During World War 2, 50 per cent of the casualties were civilians.
Since 2001, 90% of all Casualties are civilians.

When America collapse I don’t if anyone will come to her aide.

Who is really in control of US Military?
Why are we killing millions of people?

Will you stop SOPA, a bill in congress
that will shut down the web as we know it.

Bitcoin Elliot Wave Analysis 2012 – huge potential wave up in price

0 Bitcoin Elliot Wave Analysis 2012   huge potential wave up in price1DwXmu9wQ6ABfdBr1zHu6srn2dwdoi8v9q

Donate a BTC to get me going..

I’m also looking to buy via Paypal if your price is cheap icon smile Bitcoin Elliot Wave Analysis 2012   huge potential wave up in price

Bitcoins could be amazing once it is understood and packaged for the non-technical public. Privacy, divisibility, transportable and tracked on exchanges.

Not a bad start.

As an investment I take a look at a potential in the Elliot Wave Model for a dramatic increase in the Bitcoin price.

My public key to send a BTC 1DwXmu9wQ6ABfdBr1zHu6srn2dwdoi8v9q

If there is a currency collapse after a big deflation and after that an attempt at hyper-inflation that the world totally rejects: all currency confidence disappears and true money is looked for. Asset protection in pure monies.

So I have always looked at digital pure currencies, or gold/silver which is pure money with a set amount available and no central control.

We have gold and silver and cash but there is another money 20 century form that is so advanced it is free from control and allows easy world wide instant payments to anyone anywhere securely. UN-hackable and UN-reversable or stolen by a third party.

Also the total wealth held is only known by you the holder.

It also trades freely on multiple currency exchanges already with graphs on these sites with all world currencies compared to this Bitcoin currency.

A digital security money code: a currency faith that can grow because of its attributes.

I was looking back years ago at digital money and now it is perfecting and Most importantly its TIME has come. The idea like this can only work when the time is right. And coming up we might have a big money shock so this is another safety place. I think the time is now for a few reasons.

It has an Elliot wave 5 up and a disaster in a collapse after in an ABC wave. If that is correct then it may explode 1000X in value over only a couple of years. This first five up is the first 1 wave up in a larger scale 5 up of larger magnitude… maybe…

Legalizing Marijuana: Costs vs Benefits

2 Legalizing Marijuana: Costs vs BenefitsComplete video at: http://fora.tv/2009/07/30/Marijuana_Economics

Police chief Scott Kirkland debates marijuana advocates Eugene Schoenfeld and Richard Lee over the costs and benefits of legalization. Kirkland argues that the tax revenue it generates will be offset by the increased public health costs, while Schoenfeld and Lee counter that keeping marijuana illegal insures unreasonably high crime rates associated with the drug.

—–

Marijuana is by some estimates California’s largest cash crop, bringing in more than twice the revenue of vegetables, yet we don’t tax this green. Legalizing and taxing pot could provide $1.3 billion to help our hemorrhaging economy, but it might also lead to additional problems and undermine anti-drug efforts. Is this crop just cash waiting to be reaped, or is it more complicated? Come hear advocates on both sides argue the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana. – Commonwealth Club of California

Scott Kirkland is the Chief of the El Cerrito Police Department. He is also a member of the board of directors of the California Police Chiefs Association.

Dr. Eugene Schoenfeld practices psychiatry, with a specialty in psychopharmacology. His work in psychopharmacology includes the study, diagnosis, and treatment of problems related to drug abuse and addiction. Since 1983, he has served on the Advisory Board of the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs. Dr. Schoenfeld is a member of the court-appointed psychiatrist panels for the Superior Courts of Alameda County, Contra Costa County, Marin County, and San Francisco, CA. In 1997, the University of Miami School of Medicine selected him as a Distinguished Alumnus.

Richard Lee has been working to end cannabis prohibition for 17 years. In 1999, he opened the Bulldog Coffeeshop, the second cannabis outlet in “Oaksterdam”. In 2003 Lee founded the Oakland Civil Liberties Alliance, the PAC that passed Oakland’s Measure Z making private sales, cultivation, and possession of cannabis the lowest law enforcement priority and mandating that Oakland tax and regulate cannabis as soon as possible under state law. In 2007, he founded the first cannabis college in the United States, Oaksterdam University. Since 2005, Lee has been serving on the City of Oakland Cannabis Regulation and Revenue Ordinance Commission, which was created after Measure Z passed with 65% of the vote 2004. He manages several other Oaksterdam companies, including the Oaksterdam Gift Shop and Nursery.

RT-Drug companies responsible for swine flu outbreak?

2 RT Drug companies responsible for swine flu outbreak?Lawsuit Charges Baxter Used Dangerous Ingredients In Vaccines To Increase Profits
Questions remain over company chosen to develop swine flu vaccine

Steve Watson
Infowars.net
Thursday, April 30, 2009

A scandal dating from January 2008, that is continuing to unfold, raises more disturbing questions over the safety of U.S. pharmaceutical company Baxter International’s vaccines.

Last year Baxter recalled almost all of its injections of the blood thinning heparin drug in the US after some patients experienced extreme – and in some cases fatal – allergic reactions, after being administered the products.

There were similar recalls by other manufacturers of Chinese-sourced heparin in Denmark, Italy, France Germany and Japan, but initial investigations found that only Baxter’s heparin vaccines were tainted.

The FDA has accused two Chinese manufacturers of being responsible for the production and shipment of the tainted vaccines, suggesting that a cheaper synthetic heparin mimic, subsequently identified as over-sulfated chondroitin sulfate (OSCS), was used to decrease costs.

However, in January 2009 a new lawsuit was filed specifically against Baxter for it’s role in the scandal.

The allegation is that the pharmaceutical giant purposefully altered an ingredient in heparin that flowed through heparin syringes to patients, resulting in pain and suffering, and sometimes death, to those affected, reported legal website Lawyers and Settlements

Somewhat ironically, the natural ingredient in heparin that was substituted in order to cut costs was a substance extracted from cooked swine intestines.

The lawsuit notes that OSCS is not found in nature, and is not approved in the United States. It accuses Baxter of using a more dangerous ingredient to “reap greater profits as a result of utilizing cheap component parts.”

(Article continues below)

As we reported earlier this week, Baxter has been chosen by the WHO to head up efforts to produce a vaccine for the Mexican swine flu that is spreading throughout the U.S. and Europe.

The decision was made despite further revelations last month that vaccines contaminated with deadly live H5N1 avian flu virus were recently distributed to 18 countries by a lab at an Austrian branch of Baxter.

Initially, the company attempted to stonewall questions by invoking trade secrets and refused to reveal how the vaccines were contaminated with H5N1. After increased pressure they then claimed that pure H5N1 batches were sent by accident.

However, as we have highlighted, the probability of mixing a live virus biological weapon with vaccine material by accident is virtually impossible.
