Medicine drop boxes like this one are located at local police departments throughout Cape May County, allowing residents to safely dispose of unwanted or expired prescription drugs. The Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey (PDFNJ) is raising awareness about the dangers of prescription drug misuse and encouraging safe disposal of prescription drugs through the American Medicine Chest Challenge – New Jersey (AMCC-NJ) National Day of Awareness being held this Saturday.AMCC-NJ is a community-based national public health initiative held in partnership with law enforcement partnership, with collection sites throughout New Jersey. To find a collection site, visit the American Medicine Chest Challenge website at www.americanmedicinechest.com/.The AMCC-NJ National Day of Awareness, now in its 12th year, provides a unified way to draw attention to the issue of prescription and over the counter abuse and challenge Americans to take the American Medicine Chest 5 Step Challenge. “During these trying times it is more important than ever that we safeguard our homes and families from the danger of prescription drugs and the opioid crisis,” Angelo Valente, executive director of PDFNJ, said in a press release. “The American Medicine Chest Challenge 5 Step Challenge can help save the lives of our children. We know that many teens who misuse opioids get them from the medicine cabinet of their friends and families, so it is crucial for people to safeguard medicine within their homes.”The AMCC-NJ 5 steps include:Take inventory of your prescription and over-the-counter medicine.Secure your medicine.Dispose of your unused, unwanted, and expired medicine at an American Medicine Chest Disposal Site.Do not share medicine prescribed to you.Talk to your children and physician about the dangers of prescription drug abuse. They are listening.

Harvard Chan School researcher discusses safety, design, more “Streets are what make some cities great, and some cities not so great,” Janette Sadik-Khan told a capacity crowd at Gund Hall at the Graduate School of Design Thursday evening.The problem, explained Sadik-Khan, an authority on transportation and urban transformation and the former transportation commissioner of New York City, is not so much the actual asphalt as who uses it — more specifically, for whose use it was designed. That focus has changed drastically over the past 100 years, Sadik-Khan noted, illustrating her point with photos of the intersection around Boston’s South Station from the early 20th century and today.“Streets used to be really lively places for people,” she said, “but in the last century they’ve become places for cars.” As a result, “we’ve got congested streets, lifeless streets.”Sadik-Khan discussed how urban thoroughfares can be — and have been — reimagined, first for private automobiles and now, increasingly, for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport. For illustration, she reviewed her work from 2007 to 2013 under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, which is chronicled in her book (written with Seth Solomonow) “Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution.” As transportation commissioner, Sadik-Khan, who had earlier served as a transportation adviser to Mayor David Dinkins, ultimately helped implement PlaNYC, a comprehensive program for urban sustainability that had been spearheaded by the city’s deputy mayor for economic development, Dan Doctoroff. Under Sadik-Khan’s leadership, the city created nearly 400 miles of bike lanes as well as pedestrian plazas, bus lanes, public seating, and maps, and improved walkways and crosswalks, all of which increased pedestrian safety and usage and, ultimately, made for a more usable, people-centered city.Some of the changes Sadik-Khan outlined were relatively simple. For one early project, for example, the city’s Department of Transportation took over Brooklyn’s Pearl Street Plaza. By painting the pavement green to set it off from the surrounding streets and bringing in planters and umbrellas, the department turned what Sadik-Khan called “an underused parking lot” into an inviting outdoor public space. At times, not even that much effort was needed. Within hours of closing off Broadway just north of the Flatiron Building at 14th Street, Sadik-Khan recalled, art students were sitting in the road, sketching the buildings from a street-level perspective. (Photos of these projects and others illustrate “Streetfight.”)“By showing what was possible, we built up an appetite for what people could imagine and ask for,” she said.These innovations were not without pushback. The opposition to the city’s bike-share program, Citi Bike, was so strong that it prompted what Sadik-Khan dubbed a “bikelash,” with a critical Wall Street Journal columnist referring to “the all-powerful bike lobby.”The bike-share program was ultimately defended by celebrities such as Jon Stewart and has grown to become overwhelmingly popular. At Harvard, Sadik-Khan used the attacks as an opportunity to teach strategy. She said the key to overcoming such adversity is building relationships with the people who actually use the streets. She talked about how partnering with groups like Boston’s LiveableStreets Alliance enabled change in New York.“A city that is looking to do big things will always have a push-pull relationship with communities, and building those relationships with communities is more important than anything you put down in concrete, asphalt, or steel,” she said. “It is years of the hard work of advocates that got us to the point where we are today.”Sadik-Khan advised those pushing for change to engage with authorities as much as possible. “I made it a point to have breakfast or lunch every few months with the police commissioner,” she said. “You have to build relationships at the agency level.” Shorter is better, analysts say, but if they’re too narrow, people spend too much time crossing streets Why city blocks work Cities, riders learning on fly as bike-sharing gains momentum Through the Bloomberg Harvard Initiative, student fellows help mayors to improve lives The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news. A summer of service to cities Related The payoff, she said, is worth it in that reimagined streets can result in a more livable and more profitable city. For example, retail is measurably up on streets that are now more hospitable to pedestrians and cyclists — by 49 percent in one case study Sadik-Khan cited. Traffic-related injuries and fatalities are also measurably reduced.Praising Boston and Cambridge, as well as surrounding cities such as Somerville and Arlington, for adopting modifications like bike and bus lanes, Sadik-Khan said the area is a leader in urban transformation. Many of the questions following her talk focused on local issues, such as making Harvard Square more pedestrian-friendly. To aid such efforts and propel them further, Sadik-Khan again emphasized local activism and involvement, encouraging participants to push for changes — even small ones — that will help people visualize what is possible.“The bottom line is that it’s not a question of engineering, it’s a question of imagination,” she said. “It’s a fight to make space for people — a street fight. It’s a fight we can win and a fight we must win because when you change the street you change the world.”

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In response to the Trump Administration announcement on the U.S. not lifting sanctions with Cuba, the National Corn Growers Association wants to emphasize the potential importance of Cuba as a trading partner.Cuba should be an easy market for U.S. corn farmers. Instead, that market has gone to our competitors — costing us an estimated $125 million in lost opportunity each year. If trade with Cuba were normalized, it would represent our 11th largest market for corn. Instead, we have just 11% market share in a country only 90 miles from our border. At a time when the farm economy is struggling, we ask our leaders in Washington not to close doors on market opportunities for American agriculture.
A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Apple#web Survey Says: Marketing Stunt!Well not so fast. Let’s keep in mind that Retrevo likes to put out these sorts of link-baiting surveys from time to time. For example, a prior survey found that iPhone owners were materialistic and fickle people. (Who couldn’t write about that?) We probably should just ignore these publicity stunts… err… surveys, but this one was begging to be shot down… or shored up, we suppose. After all, their survey phrases questions in a way that almost guarantees a negative response. Case in point: “do you need an iPad?” No one really needs an iPad. Not surprisingly, many people said “no.” We need water, food, shelter and clothing. Once our basic needs are met, we then focus on obtaining other “needs” like a job, a car, an education, etc. The iPad, however, is something we want. We already have a computer. Maybe even a computer, a netbook and an iPod or iPhone. We can’t in all honesty say we need an iPad. It may seem like a simple turn of phrase, but when crafting survey questions, word choice is important. Will You Buy an iPad?So instead of going by Retrevo’s findings, we’ll ask you instead. Will you buy the iPad? Will you rush right out and get one as soon as it hits store shelves? Or will you wait patiently for iPad 2.0? Or are you not interested at all? Now’s your chance to weigh in and prove Retrevo’s numbers wrong… or right, as the case may be. Just answer the question in the poll below: Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting sarah perez Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A new survey from Retrevo finds that consumers’ interest in the Apple iPad died down after they heard what the new tablet PC actually had to offer. According to the company, “not only did Apple fail to convince new buyers, it may have lost many potential buyers who now say they don’t think they need an Apple tablet computer.” Ouch! While it’s true that the poll results do support these findings, they contradict what tech analysts have been saying about the device’s potential. With sales expectations that range anywhere from 1 million to 6 million units over the course of this year, the iPad is predicted to do quite well. So is the survey wrong? Or is it the analysts? iPad Reality Disappoints?The Apple iPad has the dubious glory of being one of the most over-hyped, hotly anticipated tech products of the year. Rumors surrounding the device prior to its launch had the tablet computer offering everything from OLED to multiple cameras to an innovative multi-touch enabled back. The reality was a much simpler device that looked more like a big iPod than the revolutionary product so many had built up in their minds. But will this let-down in expectations actually lead to fewer sales? If you believe the Retrevo survey, that could easily be the case. The percentage of consumers who had heard about the iPad but were not interested in buying one jumped from 26% prior to Apple’s announcement to 52% afterwards. Also, people who claimed they don’t need an iPad went from 49% to 61%. That certainly sounds like bad news for Apple, doesn’t it? 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
