BLOG: MAP: A Look at the Wolf Administration’s Opioid Epidemic Outreach

first_imgLike Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twitter BLOG: MAP: A Look at the Wolf Administration’s Opioid Epidemic Outreach Public Health,  Substance Use Disorder,  The Blog Over the past few months, Governor Wolf, Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine, and other members of the Wolf Administration, have made 27 stops to discuss the importance of battling the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic in Pennsylvania and to advocate for $34 million to fight the opioid crisis in the final budget.Take a look at the map of their stops here:In 2014, nearly 2,500 Pennsylvanians died from a drug overdose. Heroin and opioid overdose are the leading cause of accidental death in Pennsylvania, killing more individuals each year than motor vehicle accidents.Governor Wolf and other members of his administration, including Secretary Tennis, Dr. Levine, Secretary Wetzel, Secretary Dallas, and Director of Homeland Security Marcus Brown, have held bipartisan roundtables throughout the state to discuss local and statewide efforts to lead the nation in combating the opioid abuse and heroin use epidemic. Fighting Pennsylvania’s opioid and heroin epidemic is a top priority for the Wolf Administration and these events have been an opportunity to work collaboratively with the General Assembly and community leaders to ensure that Pennsylvania leads the nation in the fight to combat the opioid abuse and heroin use crisis.In addition to the governor’s community roundtables, Dr. Levine has been stopping at pharmacies in order to remind Pennsylvania residents and pharmacists that a doctor’s prescription is not needed to obtain the life-saving opioid overdose antidote drug naloxone. Last October, Dr. Levine signed a standing order that makes it possible for all Pennsylvania residents to access the life-saving drug naloxone.center_img June 21, 2016 By: Darwin Paz, Digital Assistantlast_img read more

Tyson to fight world champion Klitschko in February comeback

first_imgActor, Author, ex-con, cartoon star, and former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson is getting a comeback title shot next month at the ripe old age of 48.Current champ Wladimir Kitschko is putting his three title belts on the line to fight the aging Tyson in what will be sure to be a major pay-for-view event for fans, as well as a big payday for both fighters.“I mean who the hell is Wladimir Kits…Kitsco…kitty cats, anyway?” asked Mike Tyson to a room of reporters trying desperately to stifle their laughs.”I had to Google it, ’cause I had no idea who this chump champ was. Boxing needs me, ain’t nobody have to Google Mike Tyson. I’ve got the most recognizable face in sports, maybe the world, and that was even before the face tattoo. I still got it. Shit, I’m not even training for this one. Just watch. I’ll knock his ass down in one punch.”Insider reports say that the fight could net Tyson a near $5 million payday, win or lose.“Yeah, you know, I don’t even wanna fight that bad. It’s not that I can’t, I just don’t care. But I do care about that money, baby,” said Tyson. “I need to make it now, and not piss it all away like last time. That cartoon show money isn’t going to come rolling in forever.”  ”My man Iron Mike is back, and the world of boxing has suffered in his absence,” said legendary boxing promoter Don King.“No one cares about boxing anymore, all you hear about is the mixed martial arts. It’s sad when two men hugging each other on a mat is more popular than boxing. That’s why me and Mike have come out of retirement,” Don King continued.”Don’t listen to Mike when he says it’s for the money – heck, after my 70% off the top he won’t have much left anyway.”This fight, it’s about pride in the sport. Pride in America. It’s about showing age is just a number and you’re never to old to achieve your dreams. And yeah, okay, it’s about the money too.”last_img read more

Virginia vs. Oregon: Picks, predictions for March Madness Sweet 16 matchup

first_imgThese Cavaliers have one of the top NBA prospects in college basketball, sophomore wing De’Andre Hunter, as well as a skilled veteran backcourt and a powerful, deep frontcourt. They are great at both offense and defense, not just the latter.SN’s MARCH MADNESS HQLive NCAA bracket | Live scoreboard | Full TV schedule​They even get the only remaining double-digit seed in the field, the Oregon Ducks, for their round of 16 matchup.It could not line up better for them.

Hunter has blossomed into one of the most dynamic and versatile players in college basketball. King was an elite recruit who has developed into a highly productive freshman. King is two inches taller at 6-9, and he is deployed mostly in a matchup-zone type of defense. But it’s likely Hunter will be handed the assignment of containing King, who has scored in double figures in every March elimination game the Ducks have played. King is 15 of 30 from long distance in those games and went 32 minutes or more in the past five. Hunter has become a more featured part of UVA’s balanced offense as well, with five 20-point games over the past 12.MORE SWEET 16 PREVIEWSUNC-AUB | UK-UH | MSU-LSU | ZAGS-FSU | PURDUE-UT | UM-TT | DUKE-VTMost eye-popping statVirginia ranks 353rd in tempo among Division I teams, according to KenPom.com. That’s out of 353 teams. The Cavaliers average 71.6 points per game because they are highly efficient when in possession of the ball. They are the second-most efficient offense, behind Gonzaga, which by the way, ranks first among all teams in tempo. There are those who become impatient with Virginia’s overwhelming regular season success and lack of postseason excellence to accompany it.In fact, some of Virginia’s teams since its 2014 breakthrough have not been ideally constructed to succeed in the NCAA Tournament. This one is. Virginia wins if …The Cavaliers can find a workable solution for the Oregon zone, which has produced victories in 10 consecutive games and has held three straight opponents to 54 points or fewer. Virginia has the shooters and the patience to find its way through.Oregon wins if …The dynamism of King and 6-9 Kenny Wooten causes UVA more problems than anticipated. Virginia is a very capable offensive team but did have some problems against the electric athletes deployed by Duke. Are we comparing Oregon in anyway to Duke? Well, just one way. And no, King is not Zion Williamson or even RJ Barrett. But if you’re trying to concoct a scenario in which the Ducks might find a way to pull this out, the Ducks’ length and quickness would certainly be a prominent aspect of that.MORE: Why your team won’t make the Final FourSweet 16 pick: Virginialast_img read more

Football: Coutinho bid a waste of time, Klopp tells Barca

first_imgHong Kong, China | AFP | Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told Barcelona they are wasting their time trying to sign Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho — no matter the offer.Klopp has already rejected a $93 million bid for Coutinho, who scored a superb winner in Liverpool’s 2-1 Premier League Asia Trophy victory over Leicester City in Hong Kong on Saturday.Barca are set to test Liverpool’s resolve with an improved offer but Klopp has told the Catalan giants not to bother.“If I say he is not for selling, he is not for selling,” the German told British media.“There is nothing else to say. It’s a club decision, it’s my decision. That’s how it is.”Liverpool sold Luis Suarez to Barca and Raheem Sterling to Manchester City in recent years but Klopp bristled when asked if he had received assurances from the board that Coutinho would not be next.“I can say 20 times, he is not for sale,” said Klopp, who has been frustrated so far in his attempts to sign Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita and Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk during the transfer window.“If you ask the other question the other way and I say, ‘there has been no assurance’, you make the story the other way.“With Suarez I was far away,” added the former Borussia Dortmund coach, who joined Liverpool in 2015. “When the club sold Sterling I was maybe the last to know about it. Those situations have nothing to do with this one.“We are approaching a very important moment and we want to get better. For this we have to keep our key players,” said Klopp, insisting his word was final.“There is no story for me,” he added. “Whatever happens from their side, I say he is not for sale. You can say whatever you want. The answer is ‘not for sale’.”Klopp confirmed he had spoken to Coutinho in private at the team’s hotel in Hong Kong before Saturday’s game but refused to reveal what was said.The German did, however, explain the reason for his first-half rant at referee Bobby Madley following some heavy challenges on Coutinho.“I was not too happy about two decisions around Phil,” said Klopp. “He (Madley) told me if I behave like I behaved today (in the Premier League) then I would have to go in the stands.“I said: ‘If I behave like today then I go in the stand, no problem. But you have to change how you whistle’. For me, it was a clear foul, it’s dangerous.”RELATED VIDEO.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
