Pasadena Police Department to Hold 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Event

first_imgGovernment Pasadena Police Department to Hold 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Event Published on Thursday, September 24, 2015 | 5:08 pm Top of the News The 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back will take place September 26th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Pasadena Police Department. As with previous Take-Back events, a site will be set at the Pasadena Police Department so local residents can return their unwanted, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal.The National Prescription Drug Take-Back addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Many Americans are not aware that medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.For additional information, contact Jason Clawson, Special Enforcement Section at (626) 744-3981 or [email protected] Police Department, 207 Garfield Ave, Pasadena, (626) 744-4501 or visit www.ci.pasadena.ca.us/police.

Brazilian Army Modernizes Helicopters, Reinforces Aerial Mobility

first_imgAfter workers complete the updates, the Armed Forces will redesignate the helicopters as AS 365 K2-Super Panteras. The third helicopter to be modernized was delivered to ground forces on December 21st, and will join the aircraft at the Army 2nd Air Battalion (BAvEx) in the city of Taubaté in São Paulo. “The result, from the Army Aviation point of view, is that the rebuilt helicopters and the modernized ones are equal and standardized and provide the same performance,” CCOMSEx said. The Army considers the Pantera helicopters to be “general use” aircraft because the Armed Forces can deploy them in a variety of missions, such a search and rescue operations and for border patrols. In 2015, the new helicopters performed some of these missions, and completed 1,000 flight hours in October. Four new aircraft will be delivered in 2016 To increase the helicopters’ power, workers installed ARRIEL 2C2CG model engines. The new engines are stronger and more fuel efficient, which means increased power, according to the Army’s Social Communications Center (CCOMSEx). The first two helicopters to be modernized were completely rebuilt, with each one receiving a completely new external structure, as well as updated systems and equipment. The remainder of the helicopters will not have their external structures replaced, though their systems and equipment are being updated with the same items as the rebuilt aircraft. The new autopilot equipment will reduce pilots’ workload. The autopilot allows the pilot to let the equipment do the work through much of the flight, but the pilot still needs to take control of the plane during critical moments, such as during take-off and landing. These renovations and upgrades are the result of an $88.29 million (349.35 million Brazilian reals) contract the government awarded to Brazilian company Helibras in 2009. Under the terms of the agreement, the company will renovate each of the 34 helicopters by 2021, when the contract expires. Helibras began to deliver the renovated vehicles in 2014, when it provided the first two Super Panteras. “We anticipate receiving four more units in 2016,” CCOMSEx explained. The AS 365 K-Pantera helicopters could only carry about eight service members because the weight of any more, along with that of the equipment on board, would make flying unsafe, according to CCOMSEx. “But now, with the new helicopters’ capacity, it is possible to transport nine service members and work in improved safety conditions.” “Greater power reverts to a greater useful load, meaning it is able to carry more weight. Before modernization, the Pantera could carry 4,150 kilograms. Now, it can carry 4,300 to 4,500 kilograms,” CCOMSEx added. The 2016 Olympics The night vision goggles enable service members to see with minimal illumination. This technology broadens the circumstances under which the Military can use the helicopters. The Military subjected the three renovated helicopters to a series of tests, known as the Technical-Operational Evaluation. During the evaluation, the Army conducted 150 missions in 12 Brazilian cities, testing in profoundly different environments throughout the country, such as the Amazon Rain Forest – which has a humid and rainy climate – and the landlocked center of the country, which is dry and hot. Brazil’s Army is modernizing its fleet of 34 AS 365 K-Pantera helicopters, which the Military has deployed since 1989. By Dialogo January 07, 2016 Renovating the helicopters increases their power by 40 percent and extends their usable life by 25 years. Workers are installing numerous upgrades to each vehicle, such as a digital autopilot, night vision equipment and cable cutters – a protection that helps service members avoid accidents in the event of being shocked by electrical wires. For example, the Military used the renovated helicopters to support service members who were participating in Operation São Francisco, during which the Army supported the 14-month pacification of Rio de Janeiro’s Maré favela complex. Authorities also anticipate using the Pantera helicopters during the 2016 Olympics, as these aircraft will be used during counter-terrorism activities under the Army Special Operations Command.

Drew Lock: strange offseason hasn’t curbed his expectations

first_imgA third-round pick in 2015, Heuerman spent his rookie year on IR after blowing out his left ACL covering a kickoff at the team’s rookie minicamp.He totaled 63 catches for 678 yards and five touchdowns in 51 career games.Heuerman faced long odds of making the roster this year with a tight end corps that features Noah Fant and newcomers Okwuegbunam and Nick Vannett along with Troy Fumagalli, Andrew Beck, Jake Butt and Austin Fort.___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton July 31, 2020 Associated Press “Today’s world is adjusting, so we’ll adjust to that. The mature kids will come in and do everything they can to get up to speed, but again, they’re going to be young guys without an offseason program. We definitely have to give them some rope and temper it a little bit and take it one practice at a time.”While Lock remains defiant in the face of these obstacles, he said he’s also a realist.“The real factor of it is yes, we didn’t get enough time with each other. We’re going to get a shortened period of time to pick up a lot of things extremely quick and it may not be the prettiest at first,” Lock said. “But our job is to make the mistake, learn from it and try not to make that mistake more than once because we really don’t have time to make the same mistakes.”TIGHT END LOGJAM:The Broncos began to clear their logjam at tight end by releasing oft-injured sixth-year pro Jeff Heuerman. The first offseason after a quarterback’s rookie year usually is crucial to his development and his chances for long-term success because it’s the first time he’s immersed in the pro game and can absorb advanced concepts that build on the crash course from his rookie year.Lock and three other members of last year’s rookie QB class — the Jaguars’ Gardner Minshew, the Giants’ Daniel Jones and Washington’s Dwayne Haskins — not only missed out on that in-person progress but also were left to navigate a catch-up training camp while operating out of a new system.Former Giants head coach Pat Shurmur is the new offensive coordinator in Denver, joining Jay Gruden (Jacksonville), Jason Garrett (New York) and Scott Turner (Washington) in bringing new playbooks to second-year QBs.After Lock went 4-1 last December, Elway spent his offseason building around him, signing free agents Graham Glasgow and Melvin Gordon and drafting Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler, Lloyd Cushenberry III and Albert Okwuegbunam, all of whom could be starting come September.Given all the changes, Elway was asked this week if expectations for Lock in Year 2 should be tempered. “Yeah, they’re definitely tempered,” Elway said. “I don’t think we can expect with no offseason for us to come out and be hitting on all cylinders. I know that we have spent a lot of time in Zoom meetings and Pat and his staff on the offensive side have spent a lot of time with it. But there’s nothing like being on the practice field. It’s going to be a slow build. “The expectations of Drew — I mean, he did play well for five games, but that was only five games last year. He didn’t have the offseason this year, which for young football players is always very, very important. I know he spent a lot of time throwing to the receivers and getting the timing and doing what they could do away from the facility. We’re very young on the offensive side.”Because Lock spent three months on IR last year with an injured thumb on his throwing hand, he’s essentially still a rookie, and Elway said back in 1983 “I always remember as a rookie it was important for me to see other helmets and not just Bronco helmets.”The NFL scuttled the entire four-week preseason at the players’ request to allow them to slowly ramp up their football fitness, something that’s both beneficial and detrimental as the roster gets built.“I was hoping for a couple preseason games just because we are so young on the offensive side to get to see somebody else,” Elway said. “We’re going to have to deal with it. Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The coronavirus pandemic forced NFL teams into an unconventional offseason and wiped out the entire preseason, two factors that led Broncos general manager John Elway to temper his expectations for second-year quarterback Drew Lock in 2020. Lock’s own ambitions haven’t abated one bit.“Not being able to be with the guys as much as you normally would is not going to change how I feel going into the season,” Lock said Friday. “I still want to do the things … I thought we could do this year.” Drew Lock: strange offseason hasn’t curbed his expectations ___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more
