But but nothing mostly silence except for a few media outlets including Fox News the. New York Post Breitbart in a few others are covering what? Could easily be considered in that other universe a bombshell story about Joe Biden and his son hunter because according this is kind of weird Rudy Giuliani who is the personal attorney for president trump has his own attorney Robert Costello.

A computer repair shop owner in Delaware notified federal investigators about the existence whoever dropped it off in April of two thousand and nineteen never return to collect it or to pay the bill.

If they leak it out, you might be able to see Hunter Biden Smoking crack. An engaging in sex acts. With with the mysterious women, which shouldn't be surprising. We forty known Hunter Biden father to child with the stripper right and then denied it was his child until he willingly gave the DNA and what Oh it is me. But the the most. Damning.

Then Of and paid fifty thousand dollars a month a position. He got thanks to his dad because the Ukrainians and particularly burris Ma wanted access to Obama, and the reason for that is apparently a prosecutor in Ukraine was going to investigate Burris for corruption. Under by introduced a Joe Biden into a top executive editor Ukrainy energy company less than a year before Joe Biden pressured government officials to fire a prosecutor who is investigating the company and that's not.

Biden kept saying I. We never talked about hunters business world we never did. But at this meeting actually occurred. And I guess the response for the Vice President's office as there was nothing on the official schedule. Right Dak you're actually not denying. Anything that's being reported by by the New York Post because it's clearly as emails. Like there's no question. These are the real things. It's clearly the photos in the videos.

Eight hours in Greenwich County and five hours in Cobb county at one point, which is kind of ironic right you go to the polls early to try and avoid the long lines on election day I?

They know that that's a good question why each, person might WanNa do that you know I don't know why you'd WanNa stand there for that long particularly whether that be that you just this is your baby your only opportunity to vote.

No they weren't putting up with the mask orders. They have a masked mandate in. Anchorage. Wealth. So I, guess it's time to play her voice again if it's too either missed it yesterday, I wanted to play it again but we didn't have time. A this story reached the top of the charts because this woman got so angry after her fight with. Co. worker the news director and the charges and the case and her threats to expose the and Mr. Berkowitz's a child sexpert. If you've ever been involved with a crazy person, here's a trigger warning. Okay. They May.

By the way, that's a criminal threat she ought to be charged with I think she's got a lot of charges that's piled up punching the police officer wasn't helpful for her case.

In twenty eighteen deals with rent control. Had more specifically allowing local governments to enact their own rent control legislation. We'll be talking about this after the news at three o'clock prior to one, thousand, nine, hundred, five cities and counties could enact their own rent control laws but then they pass something called the Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act, which curbed that power and that's why this crowd is back for the second time in just a couple years trying to get a statewide rent-controlled measured pass local governments can put a cap on rent increase. So we'll start with the Yes side right after the news. At. Three o'clock probably one of the most entertaining and wild things we talked about yesterday was the story of Anchorage Alaska involving the mayor. Ethan. Berkowitz and day local television news anchor who apparently had engaged in a messaging relationship. sexting I. Think it was more involved than that though. Probably because as far as the mayor would admit though, I'll be message being inappropriate messaging relations because in the audio of her screaming at him that we played yesterday she says something about well I loved you and I don't think you fall in love through text messages. I, think. So usually if you're doing that you're doing stuff in person. Yeah. The update is did resign he quit I think happened during our show yesterday afternoon. The reason, the story got even wilder is that this news anchor got into a fight with the news director at television station physical the cops came, and then she went on a rant accusing the mayor of liking. Underage girls put that online. He put that out. She put online. She got an exclusive story mayor of Anchorage here's Here's a naked photo of him he was trolling for. Underage Girls Online. Local authorities have investigated that claim into the best of their knowledge right now, they have found no evidence of criminal conduct on the part of former Mayor Berkowitz. But. He was a former candidate for governor, a longtime leader in the states political. Circles but he had an aid come out yesterday afternoon announce that he was resigned.

So Joe knew everything that was going on there and He told the press over and over again I nothing to do with my son's we never talked about anything to do with my son's business. If he's a liar on, that is an absolute gold plated liar and all that matters is whether someone is going to refuse to accept his lies. There's a chance. What is it tonight these town hall meetings. Tomorrow Martin Tomorrow we'll see George. Stephanopoulos on ABC supposed to host this town hall meeting.

"Is set out to do and those two agencies have had those in place those models for many many years in the in the idea, there's a already partner up with mental health professionals and they partner up with cops and they go out as teams and they go out and do. What's different here? What they're trying to do you got to remember one of the the the impetus for this is herb. Wesson was Nury Martinez to the two that wrote the initial for this, and what they said is that you know they partnered with black lives matter and they partnered with other community groups the in black lives matters. Now, governing body well known got the input from these organizations and what they're trying to avoid is, in fact I think the term is. Being Black and Brown should not be a crime in Los. Angeles. I'm paraphrasing only because the the language the reference they were making is that by the way this doesn't help doesn't have to do with just mental health issues.

Why 1 million coronavirus deaths is only just the beginning
"Yesterday Norman the world clock devote one million deaths from covid nineteen since this began less than a year ago it's been reported by the Johns Hopkins University. Dashboard, which is a pretty morbid side that keeps keeps an eye on all this sort of stuff apart from the one million deaths we've got thirty three point three, million cases in counting. And it's amazing to think that this all started from one person probably about less than a year ago. Yeah. Ten months ago November, that's the smart money is one person in China from a Bat Or Bats and moved into on ESPN. Is, an extraordinary number. And this is not necessarily going to slow down as many countries go into the second way. So we're at one million. What's the chance? Do you think we'll get to two million? Oh, I think that we'll get to two million without too much trouble unfortunately. We've got view of the United States figures on that Hopkins sites the United States numbers are going back up. There were going down a couple of weeks ago or through a few weeks ago and other going back up. Second Wave Solidifying in Europe France, not come back to France and a minute. So I think that we will get to the the the second million sadly tragically and low to middle income countries are really just getting going with this and there that just don't have the medical facilities that we do into in terms of helping people who've got severe illness. So unfortunately, this is going to go on. So when you look at also where the number of deaths really have. occurred it seems like about ten countries account for more than seventy percent of the debts. Obviously, the US is the big one there nearly a fifth. That's about two hundred and something thousand followed by Brazil India Mexico the UK Italy, where do you think that the new deaths will likely come from? Where is the the virus currently growing? It's going to come from those countries probably because they're the one seeing second wave in the second wave could well be worse than I. I wouldn't be surprised if that looks pretty similar. In some other countries, you're not necessarily going to know what's happening because they're not doing enough testing to really be sure how much corona virus they've got many people are dying of it. So I think it's in countries with doing testing that you're going to see the effect and it's likely I mean you see a million? It's likely that it's seven to ten million in reality. Because we are underestimating the amount of coronavirus around. So one million is just what we know about seven to ten is probably what the real figure actually is, and that's really scary. You mentioned the the second wives coming through a lot of countries and where in Europe, in particular saying a lot of cases suddenly jump up a lot from where they were. But. We're not actually saying the death toll yet follow. Why do you think that is all and do you think that it's likely that that's going to continue that trend so one reason you see a delay in the deaths appearing is that it takes a couple of weeks. People become seriously ill, and then we can be seriously over quite a long time. So that's one reason why it's a delay. There's probably a reduced death rate as well because the getting better at treating people in intensive care with decks meth zone, which reduces death rates by twenty percent nursing tummy not using ventilators and also the older people are so socially isolating themselves wearing masks. So they're tending not to get infected, and so the bias infections towards younger people who tend not to die of covid nineteen of Ova can get long-term effects we've spoken about. On Kurna cast before and you mentioned France before what did you want to say about France? France. Is reporting an upsurge and the authorities there are really getting worried in its report there that for example, one of the senior doctors and France as told newspapers that they're worried that there's going to be enough medical personnel to be able to deal with the the record number of cases that are appearing in France and that they may run out of intensive care beds. And it's patchy and it's also into an underprivileged areas such as Marseille where there's a lot of overcrowding and there's the worry that the capacity of the French hospital system to cope with could be welcomed a very good hospital system. So you mentioned testing before and there's been quite a few announcements recently about testing the other day we saw one from the World Health Organization about rapid testing and I think we also saw demonstration at the White House by President, trump what's the rapid testing? All about what what's it hoped that it'll achieve take overseas before we get to Australia, what the World Health Organization has done through the gates. Foundation is purchased one, hundred, twenty, million test kids rapid test kits. and. These test kits. One of them in particular is a bit like a pregnancy test where you do a swab, you shake it in some liquid and then you Putin liquid on a test strip and you went fifteen minutes into the. Shows the line or to bend your positive for the virus and it's pretty accurate. It's not quite as accurate as the PTR tests the wonder doing the moment but you don't need the artery. You don't need cars to take your samples to a laboratory then get an Aq- and wait for the results. This is done on the sport fifteen minutes. You've got an answer. So it's a way in resource poor environments to get an answer and it is cheaper than doing the PC artists. In countries like Austrailia, these tests could be used as a way of controlling the pandemic moving forward. What are we going to do in states like Batori and you South Wales even Western Australia with US tonight breaking the ship off the coast of port hedland where everybody's vulnerable to new infections coming in from overseas in particular? HOW ARE WE GONNA? Make sure there's no virus circulating that we're not aware of and mass testing particularly where people gather in large numbers is one way to actually see whether it's almost like screening the population see if you're missing any virus. And you can't really do mass screening with the existing resources because you're just going to clog up the system. If. It's instant testing people are more likely to agree to it because they don't have to hang around. They don't have to isolate themselves until they get a positive result. And it's a way of quickly finding out what's going on in an affordable way. Do you know any plans by the Australian government to get any of these rapid testing kits and and instigate that that type of program with therapeutic goods administration has stralia has approved several of these I think it's four or five of these rapid testing kits so that all they're already available in Australia. The one ones that w chose bought, which is like the pregnancy test. By Abbott, his is still under consideration for approval and there's no reason why wouldn't be approved. So the the tests are available here and available affordable price. The ideal here would be one that self contained. We don't need a little machine sitting on a desk some of them do you have to put it into machine? This one is a shake squeeze onto a strip and just wait for the result and there are others do that as well. So there's no reason why not? No in Victoria the DAUGHERTY institute is testing a way of doing mass testing using the PR test, which is the old test if you like the accurate using using saliva and they're testing that in the thousand members of the police force just to work. Out, what is the most efficient way of collecting the saliva? So you could mess testing with the old way of going about it, but the rapid testing is probably more flexible,

So, there are four main systems that shape us the major system that shapes us into good girls called the patriarchy, which is cultural social system that's been around for thousands of years has very deep roots and it's really privileges men over women in and other genders in a way that makes us form a good girl protection mechanism. 'cause we think Oh, if we just were good girls go along with the program we assimilate. And we are committed to the patriarchy will be safe. So we developed the good girl mask and the good girl archetype as a protective mechanism. So the main place it comes from the Patriarchy but the Patriarchy is like an abstract thing right when you're seven, you're not thinking about the bag. So to grounded in what I call. Messengers. So who are the messengers that we have as children that spread? Patriarchy to us and these messengers are often they don't even know they're doing it one major places family. So I always ask every client that I work with to look at what are the rules you inherited from your family the messages you got from your parents, your siblings, your uncles, your aunts, the tribe that you were born into. So what were the rules in your family? For me it was very much get the highest degree of education possible because that's how you. Get lifted out of poverty because that's what my father did. So steady has to work hard. Choose a safe path in your career. So that, you can earn that salary. So everybody is safe. Don't take risks. You argue and break the good girl that there are different types of good girls depending on which myth is at the core of your value system. So there's the myth of rules, the myth of Perfection, the myth of logic, the myth of harmony and the myth of sacrifice. You Say, your dominant myth is the myth of perfection. How did you determine that? Well I took my own assessment that I created. It felt so fun I felt like I was in a women's magazine being like B.. B. B. A.. It's like a cosmic Christ like back to your. Days. Good I definitely play into that I. Think the one telltale sign that the method perfection could be your primary is is my primary. The way that I know is persistent feelings of failure and guilt tend to mean. You're probably in the perfection camp because every good girl meth has a core fear. and. So for perfection, it's the fear failure for sacrifice the fear being selfish. For each one, there's a particular fear that really will tell you and particular desire you know with perfection, the desires related to perform.

"Today from insurance companies in an investigative report that the riots that followed the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis will cost insurance companies anywhere between one and two billion dollars. That's nationwide would be the highest ever following street disturbances. But this story is a gem from the Washington. Times covering the Minneapolis City Council, apparently, the Minneapolis City Council which passed that resolution in June asking for a brand new model of law enforcement basically defined the police and start over is now angry and questioning the police chief there over rising crime. This is swallowed slow response times by the Cops Police Chief Madeira. Redondo. Peppered with questions about the spike in armed robberies illegal street racing. Good old council president. Lisa Bender who I think we threw in a dumpster back then Oh. Yes. She does all not noon it's concerning. She thinks it's campaigning look the answer that came from Redondo was perfect. She said too often we use police departments are dealing in a reactionary mode. We oftentimes come to find crime as opposed to preventing it if state status quo right now, we'll end this year with numbers that are absolutely unconscionable about what we should have in terms of community violence, and we don't do a deep dive as a see as to what caused them in other words if the police and I saw the story yesterday Minneapolis police stops have dropped big time. We saw this in Baltimore remember after Freddie Gray was this always happens it's going on in New, York City in New York City, the the the crime rate's up. From the police you pay are going to be reactionary and not preventative. They're not going to be proactive because they don't want to get in trouble for if the mayor and the city. Council tells the police chief to pull back the police chief polls back and then you watch what happens. This is actually a beautiful time because we are seeing in in in real time the results of all these wacky progressive policies if you pull the police back, which is similar to defunding, then you get crazy crime because this is what the criminals WanNa do every day the only thing that stops them from kid committing. Crimes they're capable of is the police, and if they know the police pulled back, they're going to go to town every day all day. That's what they do and I think what people forget here is that the police are always and often proactive in other words when they're on patrol, they're looking at things to see if there's trouble there's. Big Ingredients to that number one, they may stop something before it happens and number two. They're sending a message we're watching you if they pull back is John just said, and if they're only going to wait till, they get called because somebody got shot. Well, you're right criminals can run loose because they know they're no longer unto us no longer tracking US they're no longer watching US closely. They're no longer aware of what we might do and it's human nature. It's this is not a crazy theories of human nature. You'd see it and your children. If. If people think they're not being watched, they tend to behave badly if they think somebody's monitoring them, they behave better. That's basic human nature. There is one guy on the council Felipe Cunningham could not believe what he was hearing from the rest of the idiots on the Minneapolis Council. I am flabbergasted by colleagues who are very short time ago we're calling for abolition. Now suggesting that we should be putting more funding and resources and in a police department. Yeah because they're frauds and they're phonies, they jumped on a cool trendy issue they were terrified of the black lives matter protesters. So they tried the experiment.

If you were coming up the to from locking Yada you can take that left hand turn Clear Creek, ranger, station, or fire station, and that'll take you down to Palmdale so from. There all the way back over to highway thirty, nine on the south side of highway two, which is basically where I'm seeing this plume of smoke come from and you've got a couple of of canyons over there that you know as the day heats up, you get a lot of that convection, the fireworks it's way up and as it's working uphill, of course, running into the fuels and the fuels are again being preheated ahead of time, and so we expected to see some fire activity throughout the day and sure enough here we go I read that they did incredible work to block the fire of the hand crews. Creating a clearing space. In front of Jerry, Tory yeah, I, mean that's listen we a couple of really neat lessons here from from what happened up at Mount Wilson over the last twenty, four hours number one defensible space Mount Wilson has a ton of defensible space built in just they do it every year they know that it's a high fire risk area. They've got a little patch of o'byrne scar on the south side of the mountain from I. Think it was like two years ago maybe like four acre fire but I they because of the fact that they have that defensible space firefighters have plenty of room to get to they've got water resources up there they. Have the ability to communicate very clearly with aircraft is they're coming into to help out. So that's a huge huge huge plus and that's something that every homeowner you know we we talk about this one fire season's getting ready to roll around and some homeowners out there they roll their eyes well here. Here's a big huge shining example for why that does work. Secondly, we're talking about some of the best firefighters in the world right and we're talking hotshots up there talking about L. A. County fire up there I'm these guys know what's up and they know how to bill out this line and they know how to do it quickly they had does. Drip torches doing little firing operations are back Burns to get rid of of access fuels around the the the top of the mountain up there, and on top of it all you get the rainmakers in the helicopters and in the the retardant drops and everything else. So I mean an incredible effort especially considering you know, and this is what's phenomenal. The topography of Mount Wilson because of the way the Observatory's built in the town was built up there you're almost on an island in the. Sky And a lot of ways because there's only one easy way in and out of there. So these guys know that they know that they're putting themselves basically on an island in the sky and their assignment is to protect that island at all costs and that's exactly what they did last night and that's what they continue to do today I..

He'll be talking about relevant to the topic at hand today, which is addiction. and Dr Amirah Hemas, a clinical assistant professor at Stanford University. School of Medicine and Director of the Addiction Medicine Consultant Service at Stanford Hospital. We're GONNA be talking a lot about addiction as expertise today. Given all the stressors that are happening in the world right now, armor is board certified in Addiction Medicine Internal Medicine, and he completed his training at Stanford University School of Medicine in his internal medicine training at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. So as I said, his specialization as OPIOID, N., Benzodiazepine take. Notice that tapers off. You'RE GONNA have to educate us on on the right promotional US now say. We call it the Golden Ben Zozo Okay Ben says, and treating substance use disorders in residential and outpatient programs as well as in patient and office based setting. You're welcome super interesting to talk about this very important although under not as much talked about topic. So really important and interesting to dive into that. Thanks for having me Yeah and Omer touched on this or alluded to this Excuse me I'm we obviously know you personally out beyond just having you on the show full disclosure armour's my cousin and I think, Omer, you've got an interesting sort of linked to armor as well. Raise your brother in law and armor Western. Or Medical School they went med school together. That's right. My brother-in-law they went to med school together and. we live we all live in the bay area, of course. Ten to happen with this show but Yeah. Of course, you know my I live right across the bridge from Stanford in Amer works at Stanford. So but but again, really interesting really really interested to dive into some of these talks I didn't even didn't even I didn't even know all these things about her so Yeah. Yeah for sure for sure. Absolutely and as we often like to do err on you know I guess tell us a little bit about yourself Obviously we we we heard University of Illinois being mentioned there You are originally from Chicago Illinois maybe talk a little bit about your background, and then we can get into your professional life. Sure. Absolutely. So So you know born and raised in the Chicago. Land area. We moved out here a couple years ago to the Bay Area California, to pursue some extra training and addiction medicine and started working at Stanford, you know loved the weather and the work I was doing out here and I stayed on to launch an addiction consult service at Stanford. Hospital. Addiction concert services are a way of intervening and increasing access to addiction treatment in the hospital setting. So for example, you know we have a drug overdose epidemic you'll have things like drug courts because people with addictions commonly get arrested for things are run. INS with the law so they'll have drug courts where they'll have. treatment associated with these Felonies her charges that people get such this. It's this concept of intervening where there's a large population of drug addicts and people with alcohol problems. Save the hospital people with addictions also have a higher prevalence of higher incidents of hospitalization. So by intervening at the hospital level rate to. Intervene on a large concentrated population of people with addiction. So we we go in and we talked to people in the hospital who have a medical consequence of their addiction, and this is you know crystal meth heroin, alcohol cannabis issues as well. So psychiatric complications of their addiction or medical complications of their addiction, and they're really in more reachable and teachable moment just like you know after they have a legal consequence with the drug courts, there are much more reachable and teachable moment. So in the hospital we come in, we'll do a brief intervention get your family involved, get them started on treatment therapy medications, and then linked them to ongoing treatments. It's really new, cut a model, but it's rapidly increasing all over the country to address it's the idea of their. They've Kinda hit this low and you're kind of turn the leverage that low point to and make into a turn around moment, right? Absolutely. Absolutely. A lot of our patients are just going on about their business. Some of them have been thinking about salvaging and alcohol for some time others not even a thought, but once they come to the hospital. Their lives are such somewhat disrupted, and now they are in the hospital away from drugs and alcohol minds clearing up a little bit and in some sort of pain and suffering from their medical consequence. So now they're a little bit more teachable, reachable, frustrated, sick, and tired of being sick and tired. Then we come in and tell us and we start to have a real collaborative patient centered discussion and go from there.
TSLA Stock Split Analysis
"Power here and today we were talking about some breaking news on Tesla's stock investor relations team in the after our session today announced the tussle redoing a five for one split on Tesla's stock in the after hours session right now as I'm recording tesla is trading up about six percents on the news after finishing the day down three percent the statement and full from Tesla reads quote Tesla Inc announced today that the board of. Directors has approved and declared a five or one split of Tesla common stock in the form of a stock dividend to make stock ownership more accessible to employees and investors each tackler of record on August, Twenty First Twenty twenty will receive dividend of four additional shares of common stock for each then held share to be distributed after close of trading on August twenty, eighth twenty, twenty trading will begin on a stock split adjusted basis on. August thirty, first twenty, twenty and quote. So if you're not familiar with the stock split, pretty simple concept basically for every share of Tesla that someone owns they will be granted for additional shares meaning they would then own five at the same time. The stock press will then be reduced to one fifth of the press that it is trading at at that time meaning there is no change to the valuation or the Market Cap. Of the company. So for Tesla, happen after the close of trading on Friday August twenty eighth and then on Monday, the trading will start at the new lower price with the additional share count factored in. So if Tesla Trading Fifteen, hundred dollars per share at the end of the day on that Friday new of one share on Monday, you'll have five shares each at three hundred dollars a piece I'm sure people have similar questions about. Contracts as well because this is a five for one split and not something a little bit weird like a three for two or something like that I'll options contracts will be adjusted in pretty much the exact same way. So if you had one contract for buying Tesla fifteen hundred dollars per share, for example, that will just become five contracts for buying Tesla at three hundred dollars per share say meth. So let's talk about the. Pros and cons of stock split. Obviously, there's no actual change to the company in terms of valuation. This is really just an accounting thing but the biggest pro is obviously that the stock price becomes more affordable to potentially new investors or even to investors that maybe just want to add one or two shares every month and can't afford to do that. If the stock price is about a thousand dollars over time, this benefit has become. Less significant with the advent of fractional share trading a lot of different brokerages are offering that now. So before you could about a fifth of a share of Tesla for three hundred dollars that's often presented as making stock split irrelevant. But that's not a perfect solution. They're voting rights issues with that. You don't have a right to vote if you only own a fifth of a share generally obviously, that's not gonNA, make a difference and. Some services do correct for that, but it is still a problem more importantly though not all brokerages offer fractional share trading especially internationally, which means by default there are some investors that don't have access to the number of shares that they would like to buy the logic and follows that if you do a stock, split your opening up the possible investment to more investors, that is what Tesla supplies as the reason here they say to. Make stock ownership more accessible to employees and investors. That's what stock split does. Even for those brokerages that do offer fractional share trading there are often limitations on those. For example, some don't let you do limit orders only allowing market orders for fractional shares. So I think that's the biggest one and there are knock on effects to that. If someone is able to by Tesla stock, probably more likely to follow a company more closely. And perhaps eventually become a customer whether that's something as simple as merchandise eventually vehicle and I think they're also much more likely to talk to their network about the company and about their products. So I think those secondary impacts are pretty important as well and can actually help with the fundamentals of the business. There is also some research that shows that stocks that undergo stock splits then up outperforming one study that tracked the performance of. One Thousand Two hundred seventy five companies that underwent a two for one stock split between nineteen seventy five and nineteen ninety found that those stocks outperformed the control group by eight percent in the first year and sixteen percent over three years a similar study from nineteen ninety to nineteen ninety-seven using companies that did a two for one three for one or four four one stock split found similar results eight percent over performance in one. Year and twelve percent over three years obviously though does not equal causation. It seems more likely to me at least that companies that have done well, and that project continued doing well in terms of the share price performance are more likely to do a stock split than those that have not but taking that a step further that means that a stock split is essentially a sign of competence essentially management believes that the share price is. Unlikely to fall significantly or there would be no incentive to do stock split, and perhaps they continue to believe that the stock price will rise creating more of an incentive to stock split companies don't want their share prices to get too low and certainly they don't want them to be lower than they IPO tat for example, for similarly psychological reasons it then just starts to look like your stock is actually underperformed. So if you. Do a stock, split your expressing confidence that that's not going to happen and I think that adds a nice little psychological benefit to the announcements of stock splits and probably plays a pretty big role in why we see stock prices jump on the days that stock splits are announced.

One Saturday morning in June one thousand nine hundred nine fifteen year olds charmian undeveloped disappeared. It never came home. No one has ever been charged with her murder but there was a suspect number. Come in like him. I'm Michelle Shepherd. Bird this season on uncover. I don't recall making that Com. That's fine if you don't recall it but I'm telling you that's what you told uncover Berkshire meany available now wherever you get your podcast. One of the things. We heard Thunder Bay and that's fascinating to hear how prevalent this is and also how potent it is one of the things we heard in thunder bay. If you're talking about opioids like Fenton Carbonell. They're being found in other drugs. They're being cut into things like cocaine. Now is that the concern with Christopher's well absolutely so they found that carpet mill felt null is being cut into meth. And that's part of what experts say makes meth so dangerous now compared to decades ago the Centers for Disease Control in the US has actually been tracking the rise and overdose death associated with Meth. Use the Ontario chief corner has also been looking at this and he's seen a dramatic rise in the number of overdose deaths where both crystal meth and an opioid often phenomenal have found in the person's system after death so it's important to note that there's there's also an increase in overdose deaths where crystal meth breath alone has been found without an opioid. So what do we know then about the health issues aside from the overdose concern. What do we know about the health issues that are associated with taking crystal meth well? Because it's a stimulant meth can cause extreme agitation Raise blood pressure It also suppresses appetite so longer term meth can lead to malnourishment and dehydration. Some people feel like they have meth bunks. So it's a sensation of bugs under their skin and that leads to them sort of picking at their skin which can lead to sores which then can lead due to infection meth can also lead to involuntary body movements. That sometimes called flailing and to hallucinations. Paranoia and Something that's known as meth breath psychosis so I met Dr Carolyn Snyder. She works in the Worked in the Emergency Department at the Winnipeg Health Sciences Center before she moved to Toronto about a year ago and in Winnipeg Winnipeg is where she saw firsthand some of the devastating effects that meth can have. There would be times where the people came in with such vivid psychoses in everybody. Basically that was coming in was just having these out of control awful psychoses and it was just like the primary kice piece to why they were there and we knew there was quote unquote a bad batch. Like we could tell you and you turn to the cops that were often in there. And you say there's a bad batch of absolutely. That's what we've been saying so Matt Snyder says that that means that meth can be a very difficult drug for frontline healthcare workers to manage unfortunately With with the paranoia with the hallucinations with being extremely escalated. There is sometimes a safety risk. And it's not just to US and staff but it's Other patients and often to the patient from self injury they may have put their hand through a window or a head through window or something like that and that can be very distressing for the patient themselves. That was as well. So what are the doctors and the nurses and paramedics actually able to do well. Snyder says they try to de Escalate. So they they I start by trying to talk to the patient reassuring them that they're there to help them because they're often feeling paranoid. There's also emerging this type of anti-psychotic drug called a land subpoena a pin and there's evidence emerging that it's often proven effective giving some release from the distress that they're experiencing but their time. Snyder says that patients have to. Actually it'd be temporarily restrained. And then after that after they sort of bring them down from that state of hyper agitation. There's really little that can be done in methamphetamines. It's very difficult. That agitated State can Last on average some would say four hours. I've seen it lost much longer. What's most concerning to me as a physician is that? Ah The paranoid state In the hallucinations can last sometimes for days and In fact there's some research that shows was that it can last eight to twenty seven days not to mention the cravings that come afterwards and all of that set somebody up to us again very quickly. It's it's clear from what you're saying that this is a huge issue across the country. I'm just struck by the fact that when we were in Thunder Bay. We didn't hear a lot about the meth issue. Yeah but police tell me. They're quite sure they're going to see more crystal. Meth Thunder Bay has a lot of the risk factors that drive addiction in the first place. So when the supply arrives crystal meths GonNa take hold also also I have to say to the data that we see as often really far behind. What's actually happening in the streets? So what I did was I just went out. I went out at around dawn and Thunder Bay to talk to people on the streets who were using three different people. I talked to told me that crystal Meth is already there. They had either Used it themselves or seen it one thirty two year old woman I talked. She told me she's tried tried math but she just simply didn't like being awake for so long. That notion that idea of being awake is something that we keep hearing about when it comes to crystal Meth is that something that users actually seek. Chicote some of them do in particular people who are homeless so for them taking crystal Meth has actually become part of a survival strategy. I talked to to Dr Dr Keith. Ahmad he's an addiction specialist at Saint Pauls Hospital in Vancouver about that the Housing situation in Vancouver is so dire. There's many people that are either living in in in housing situations that are completely unsafe. Or they're homeless and to protect themselves and their their belongings. They need to stay awake and in in order to stay awake. They use Crystal Methamphetamine daily so that they can protect themselves and their their possessions. Really hard to hear all. Is there any sign of hope that you saw in the work that you were doing that would suggest that as a country. We can tackle this impending crisis when it comes to crystal. I Love Matt actually in all of this actually is some hope so there are organizations. That just aren't waiting. They're taking action right now. So one of them is saint. Stephen's community a house in Toronto. This is Janet Stevenson. She's a manager of Saint Stephen's Urban Health Program. Crystal Meth has has always been around. It's not a brand new. Oh south stance however. You can't just keep trying to do what we were doing. We had to really step back and consult with individuals who are using. How can we support for you? What can we do differently? So they end up doing so what they did was created dropping group specifically for people using Meth so they meet in a space that sort of conducive suv to what they're going through so minimal stimulation because these are people who are often over stimulated using soft lighting. And there's lots of room in which is actually quite critical because something people may not know. Is that people. Using method often extremely fidgety. They like to dump it. All of their belongings than reorganize them and then along with that to create an outlet for that kind of behavior they started this program where meth users actually learned to fix bikes so they take them apart and they put them back together and that sort of helps them focus and can be soothing and helps them develop a skill as well. That's really interesting actually taking what's going on and trying a to harness what's happening in a positive direction in a in a productive way Nicole. Thank you thank you. CBS's Nicole Ireland.

"This is a podcast broadcasting from the January fourteenth edition of the current what killed him was car phenomenal. Ten Times the lethal amount. Mount that's poison that's murder and the police and the coroner basically closed his is investigation prior to getting the toxicology that I would think if I was a police officer and just myself as a parent that would we need to get. Get that off the street. Let's keep talking about the drug that killed his son Tyler. Last week reported on the OPIOID crisis in Thunder Bay Thunder Bay has the highest overdose death the rate in the province of Ontario. We heard from parents whose children had died from drugs laced with sentinel or car fennel and yet there's another drug that has has authorities worried and that drug is Christoph- it took me down quicker than any as a drug use is very fast. Within months I was unable to people to live and they took me down harder and faster than any other drug abuse. CBC reporter Nicole. Ireland has spent weeks investigating the rise of Meth in Canada. She traveled to northwestern northwestern Ontario to look at the impact of that drug on Thunder Bay and surrounding communities Nicole. Good Morning Good Morning. We've been talking a lot about the OPIOID crisis us and we've seen how it has hit so many communities in Canada and it hit them hard the man we just heard from in that intro. He was talking not about opioids. He's talking about crystal. Yeah that's right that's We'll lacey and he's a man who lives in Ontario. That's about five hundred kilometers west of Thunder Bay. He's been battling addiction for more than twenty five years. Here's to both opioids an crystal meth. He's forty seven. He has this kind of war weary air about him. He seems seems quite tired when you talk to him. His days of using meth ended about a decade ago As we know math is not a new drug but over the last few years he's watched as crystal. Meth has made this resurgence in his community. And he really worries about about it because he knows how devastating it can be also well crystal meth has a different effect on the body than opioid so opioid sober talking about oxy per cassettes. And now oh so. Much of the time Sentinel has sort of sedative effect it depresses the nervous system and all too often of course as we know it stops people from breathing. which is why we're seeing so many overdoses so mathis short methamphetamine which is a stimulant like cocaine by stimulating? The nervous system so both drugs cause a high by by releasing the brain chemical dopamine and that creates a sense of high energy and euphoria but meth releases far larger quantities of dopamine than cocaine so the effects acts of math last a long time it also keeps US awake sometimes some users say for days both experts and people who are addicted say that when they become dependent on math math. It's extremely difficult to get off of it. Here's how we'll lacey describes it and you stop using crystal meth eager tiredness. Really big tanking out of bed in the motivation anything. Nothing makes you feel good any mark and then minutes so easy just to do a little bit. Chris Amazing some feel normal again. Especially 'cause messes really cheap drug. So it's pretty easy to obtain the in order to get it and with the increase in our community have semesters everywhere do and it's people from all walks of life we're using it. It's replaced pain so people middle uh-huh class people colored people are now using submits. Its affecting all walks of life. I truly that's really interesting because that idea of crystal breath replacing cocaine but also hitting all walks of life. That's what we heard in Thunder Bay about opiates. It wasn't just one strata of society. It's right across the board in terms of the number of people who are using those drugs absolutely so crystal meth has arrived and to his hometown of. It's it's moved in there. It's not only moved moved in its ravaged the community both Health workers and law enforcement professionals. Tell me this so police say it's now the most common drug There in Kanawha Laura so while while Canada has been preoccupied with trying to stop the carnage inflicted by the OPIOID crisis. Crystal Meth has been making this rise particularly in the West so NBC and the Prairie provinces and one place. It's really been on. The rise is Winnipeg. It's been so hard. Hit that healthcare workers and police say that crystal Meth has actually eclipsed the OPIOID use. Their and Nora is only a couple of hours. East of Winnipeg so we can actually see this movement a math coming into -Tario and it's moving into communities light camera that are already vulnerable so as you saw Thunder Bay many people already struggling with opioid addiction. So one user told told me that he actually started using meth. Because opioids have become harder to find their and that's something that he attributes to the crackdown on opioids so he needs something to curb herb the horrendous physical withdrawal symptoms that come when people try to stop using these kinds of drugs trauma but those symptoms. What happened well? The cravings from a meth dependence are extremely namely strong. And you've got people trapped in this desperate cycle of trying to avoid being dope sick which is the term that they use for the feeling they have when they're going through withdrawal so I met a woman named Maranda Randa elder. She's thirty four. Short hair exudes a lot of energy. She actually used to work in social work until her use of multiple drugs. Got The better her and she describes what her life has become. Now you wake up and the first thing about it is we're going to get your next fix how you're GonNa make it through the day and it's just a continuous struggle and you have to continuously like lower your standards and lower your ethics and always tailoring what you will will not do for your fix because continuously sleaziest going to get worse and worse because all these things told yourself you never do eventually are more than likely going to end up doing because you know it gets harder and harder and to see all your friends you know dying and suffering and even more so than the death sometimes it looks like Like a bittersweet and like at least a piece because that's how bad like the struggle Duggal is every day you know all the pain and suffering. That's caused me and all my loved ones. I would do anything to take that away. It's really hard to hear particularly lily. That idea what she talked about. Lowering your ethics and lowering your standards for fix the healthcare providers in Kinara trying to address. That's the situation. We're like so many places in Canada and especially in remote and rural areas. There is a lack of affection addiction services in northern Ontario. And so there are often waiting lists for for those who want to to get help and also often frankly addictions hard. People just aren't ready to to go going through Rehab is a tough thing to do so I was really struck by the work that a small team of public health nurses and a family doctor are doing. Their job is really to who while people are are going through that process and trying to keep them safe and alive to the point where maybe ultimately they will be able to get help so this team they drive around Kinara in in a mobile outreach van and what they do is they bring healthcare to people suffering from addictions they also bring harm reduction supplies such as clean needles so I had the privilege of riding with them for an afternoon and I saw this relationship of trust that they had managed to build with these really vulnerable clients and despite the stigma that these clients face everywhere else Ulsan community with this team. They're really honest about what they're using. And in many cases that's crystal Meth so I asked the family physician on the outreach. Team has name. Is Dr Johny Grech. What makes meth particularly worrisome? I think the biggest concern for me is oftentimes they come down from the Meth In which we see certainly from a mental health point of view law the depression psychosis the violence of the belligerents often associated with Tearing apart communities. Oh that's how it would be portrayed in the widescale the scale and I think that's something that we probably haven't seen to such an extent With other addictions. It's also too easy to obtain this about quick dramatic high which can leads to also have inhibitory effects on the brain and the final thing about it for me is that there's no real antidote. What was struggling with is? How can we search for example with the opiate crisis? We've we got Methadone.
