Biden, at prayer breakfast, calls out ‘political extremism’

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden has called for a confrontation of the “political extremism” that inspired the U.S. Capitol riot in remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast. Thursday’s breakfast is a Washington tradition that asks political combatants to set aside their differences for one morning. Biden is the latest in a long line of presidents to address it. The breakfast gave the nation’s second Catholic president a chance to talk about his vision of faith. The event has sparked controversy in the past, particularly when President Donald Trump used last year’s installment to slam his political opponents. Some liberals view the event warily because of the conservative faith-based group that’s behind it.last_img read more

Pill testing ‘green lights’ deadly ecstasy says Aussie campaigner as Kiwi defends tests

first_imgTVNZ One News 7 October 2019Family First Comment: “Only 11 deaths within Australia have been from other deadly drugs that have been mixed with ecstasy. And yet pill testing green lights ecstasy which has been responsible for, we estimate, about 300 deaths within Australia. So when they’re green lighting the very substance which is killing everybody here within Australia [testing] doesn’t make any sense at all.”Exactly!A New Zealand music festival drug tester says testing could have prevented three concert-goers being taken to hospital critically ill in Auckland on Friday night. “Only 11 deaths within Australia have been from other deadly drugs that have been mixed with ecstasy. And yet pill testing green lights ecstasy which has been responsible for, we estimate, about 300 deaths within Australia. He said after doing pill testing “quietly” for five years, “we’ve got great evidence to show that we are changing how people behave with respect to drugs, that we are giving them good advice on how to stay safe and they are following that advice and being more respectful around drugs”. “And if you generalise that over 25 years – allowing for a bit of a decline before 2010 then accelerating after that – it’s around the 300 mark that we estimate have died form ecstasy, not from other drugs. There are 11 deaths form other drugs like N-BOMe or PMA, and most of them from ecstasy.” But Gary Christian of Drug Free Australia said he opposes drug testing at festivals, “simply because drug testing is always looking for drugs that mostly don’t exist”. “So when they’re green lighting the very substance which is killing everybody here within Australia [testing] doesn’t make any sense at all.” Mr Christian said Australia does everything “to facilitate drug use in this country”. Jez Watson of Know Your Stuff NZ told tonight’s programme drug testing would give preventing hospitalisations “a damn good go” and that’s why his group goes to festivals. But Drug Free Australia says pill testing gives the green light to ecstasy which has been responsible for an estimated 300 deaths across the Tasman. NZ First Law and Order spokesperson Darroch Ball says his party won’t support the law change needed because testing would only “legitimise and encourage drug use”. Mr Christian said the estimated 300 deaths is “a bit of an eyebrow raiser” but a 2010 study based on a five-year period showed 82 MDMA, or ecstasy, deaths, 16 per year on average in Australia. TVNZ1’s Q+A reports New Zealand First has upset the plan of its coalition partner Labour to allow drug testing at music festivals this summer. “We provide needle exchange programmes. We have methadone with people on that for up to 40 years, we have injecting rooms. This is facilitating drug use, this is not prohibition in any real shape or form. It’s not serious.” Asked what alternative way should drug use be treated in Australia and New Zealand, he said, “I think we’ve got to get serious about prevention. Harm reduction has not been working well for us in either country.” Mr Christian called for education on the effects ecstasy has on health.READ MORE: https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/pill-testing-green-lights-deadly-ecstasy-says-aussie-campaigner-kiwi-defends-testslast_img read more

TV Best Bets of the week: MLB Divisional Series continues

first_imgTonight’s (ESPN, 5:15 p.m.) Monday nighter is Washington against New Orleans, and Thursday’s Fox/NFLN telecast is an old-school NFC East showdown between the Eagles and Giants. The home team Sunday doubleheader has the Chargers at Cleveland (CBS, 10 a.m.) and Rams at Denver (Fox, 1 p.m.), plus a CBS game TBA at 1:30 p.m. The Sunday nighter will be Kansas City and the hated New England Belichicks.College FootballOct. 11-13You can’t tune in to a college football telecast without some announcer breathlessly saying Notre Dame has an easy path to the college football playoff, which is more than enough reason to hope JT Daniels and USC have matured enough to knock the Irish out when they meet in November.Speaking of the Pac-12, the SEC has sent five teams and ACC four to the quartet for the playoffs that began in 2014. The Pac-12 has sent two. Washington went in 2017 and was routed by Alabama, and Oregon went in 2014, winning its semifinal but then getting pasted by Ohio State, 42-20, the only title game since the quartet was created that failed to be exciting or live up to the hype.October isn’t even in double digits and the Pac-12 is down to one unbeaten team – Colorado?!? – and the chances of anyone in the conference breaking into the SEC/Big Ten/Notre Dame troika looks long. Someone needs to inform the czars of the Pac-12 and Big 12 to get together and merge into the Pac-Tex 16. They’re losing relevance at a time when the TV money is too ludicrous for a major conference to shrug it off. It doesn’t help, too, when Texas is a middling program and UCLA is looking at an 0-12 season.Your viewing recommendations: Thursday, Texas Tech-TCU (ESPN 4:30 p.m.); Friday, Arizona-Utah (ESPN, 7 p.m.); and Saturday, winless Nebraska-Northwestern (ABC, 9 a.m.); Pitt-Notre Dame (NBC, 11:30 a.m.); Washington-Oregon (ABC, 12:30 p.m.) and Michigan State-Penn State (Fox, 12:30 p.m.); 0-for-2018 UCLA at Cal (Pac-12, 4 p.m.) and Wisconsin-Michigan (ABC, 4:30 p.m.); and Colorado-USC (FS1, 7:30 p.m.).SoccerOct. 11, 14FS1 has a USMNT friendly with Colombia Thursday at 5 p.m., and the network comes back with the semifinals of the CONCACAF Women’s World Cup qualifier semifinals on Sunday (2 and 5 p.m.). The winners of the semifinals automatically advance to the 2019 World Cup, and the winner of the bronze medal game does as all. The U.S. team is slated to be in the 5 p.m. match Sunday.GolfOct. 11-14Those who enjoyed Europe’s crushing of the U.S. team in the recent Ryder Cup are directed to the British Master’s Tournament in Surrey, England, which will be televised by the Golf Channel, 1:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m. on Thursday and Friday and 3:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The Colorado Rockies will never win a World Series until the City of Denver is dropped to sea level. 2. The networks would agree to make all postseason series between the Yankees and Red Sox best-of-15. 3. The announcer shortage in baseball is as critical as climate change.The Rockies closed the season with a rush to earn the wild card and then spanked the Cubs in the wild-card game. But going on the road to Milwaukee was their Achilles. Take the Rockies out of Denver and their bats become balsa wood.Meanwhile, TBS announcers have determined the Yankee-Red Sox series is the greatest rivalry in sports since Godzilla met Rodan, even if the two teams haven’t met in the postseason in more than a decade. The genuflecting at the greatness of the Yankees and Fenway has reached mocking territory. What makes it worse is that the announcers in general – besides the Fox duo of Buck and Smoltz and MLB Network’s Costas and Kaat – have at best a casual understanding of the game and are so dependent on the stats they’re handed that telecasts have become a comedy of numbers. It almost – almost – makes one yearn for the singing stylings of Joe Davis and the humble homerism of Orel Hershiser.Here’s a tip: It the Dodgers and Milwaukee meet, win a bar bet by saying L.A. and Milwaukee have met in the playoffs before. The Dodgers and Milwaukee Braves met in a 1959 N.L. playoff series. Double down and bet the series-winning game was played at the Coliseum.The NLCS and ALCS series begin Friday. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Best of the restThe NFLOct. 8, 11, 14I seriously doubt the NFL thought the moving of the Rams and Chargers into Los Angeles would work out as well as it has. The Rams are now 5-0 and looking like a juggernaut – apologies to Jared Goff for saying he was overrated when the Rams drafted him – and the Chargers are filling the tiny Stub Hub with regularity, meaning that new stadium in Inglewood won’t be a white elephant after all.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
