2…………> Appalachian Opioid Crackdown: Scores Arrested


Attorney General William P. Barr and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex M. Azar II, together with multiple law enforcement partners, today announced enforcement actions involving 60 charged defendants across 11 federal districts, including 31 doctors, seven pharmacists, eight nurse practitioners, and seven other licensed medical professionals, for their alleged participation in the illegal prescribing and distributing of opioids and other dangerous narcotics and for health care fraud schemes.  In addition, HHS announced today that since June 2018, it has excluded over 2,000 individuals from participation in Medicare, Medicaid and all other Federal health care programs, which includes more than 650 providers excluded for conduct related to opioid diversion and abuse.  Since July 2017, DEA has issued 31 immediate suspension orders, 129 orders to show cause, and received 1,386 surrenders for cause nationwide for violations of the Controlled Substances Act.

“The opioid epidemic is the deadliest drug crisis in American history, and Appalachia has suffered the consequences more than perhaps any other region,” Attorney General William P. Barr said.

“But the Department of Justice is doing its part to help end this crisis.  One of the Department’s most promising new initiatives is the Criminal Division’s Appalachian Regional Prescription Opioid Strike Force, which began its work in December.  Just four months later, this team of federal agents and 14 prosecutors has charged 60 defendants for alleged crimes related to millions of prescription opioids.  I am grateful to the Criminal Division, their U.S. Attorney partners, and to the members of the strike force for this outstanding work that holds the promise of saving many lives in Appalachian communities.”


3…………> I Ain’t Dead Yet: Brain Research


In a study financed mostly by the National Institutes of Health, with 32 test organs coming from pigs killed for food at a local slaughterhouse, scientists were able to monitor some neuron activity within the brains of pigs that had been pronounced dead hours before, raising hopes for some medical advances and questions about the definition of death.

Researchers are emphasizing that the brains could not think or sense anything, and restoring consciousness was not a goal of the study, yet the analysis of the data found evidence that brain cells were absorbing blood sugar and oxygen hours after the pigs were slaughtered.

While lauding the experiment, some researchers have questioned whether it could become an ethical minefield.


4…………> Comrade UN New Bargaining Chip: A Missile


In yet another round of horse trading between Comrade Un, and his friend President Trump, the military of North Korea fire tested a new weapon system, described as a “tactical guided weapon” carrying a “powerful warhead,”  with the Supreme leader present at the test, marking the first publicized weapons’ development since the Hanoi talks.

The White House has been so far silent, and so have been President Trump’s tweets, mostly attacking the “enemy of the people, a.k.a the “Fake News” media.
