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.

‘Gay cake’ legal row going to Court of Human Rights

first_imgA customer whose request for a cake supporting gay marriage was refused is taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights.The incident has already prompted a string of legal battles, most recently in the Supreme Court, which last year ruled Belfast-based Ashers Baking Company did not discriminate against gay rights activist Gareth Lee.Ashers, which is run by owners with Christian beliefs, refused to make a cake showing Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie alongside the motto ‘Support Gay Marriage’. The business was originally found guilty of discrimination, and also later lost an appeal against the decision, but the Supreme Court upheld Ashers’ appeal against claims of discrimination last October. The court found the bakery did not refuse to fulfil the order because of Lee’s sexual orientation, but because it objected to the message on the cake.However, the case is now heading for the European Court of Human Rights after Lee instructed Belfast law firm Phoenix Law.This time, the case is not against Ashers, but against the United Kingdom itself, with lawyers set to argue that the Supreme Court failed to give appropriate weight to Lee’s rights under the European Convention of Human Rights.Phoenix plans to challenge the idea that a business can have religious beliefs, arguing that its owners may, but businesses, brands and companies are separate from their owners and their personal and private views.“I’d fight for the rights of business owners to be able to hold their own religious beliefs, I have my own beliefs,” said Lee. “But that’s not what my case has ever been about. This is about limited companies being somehow able to pick and choose which customers they will serve. It’s such a dangerous precedent.”Human rights solicitor Ciaran Moynagh, who will act for Lee, said he was concerned that the Supreme Court ruling allowed any company, its shareholders or owners to hold religious or political views and those views trumped the rights of its customers.The Christian Institute, which supported Ashers throughout its court cases, said it was surprised anyone would want to overturn the Supreme Court ruling, adding that it protected gay business owners from being forced to promote views they don’t share, just as much as it protected Christian business owners.“The judgment in favour of Ashers was welcomed by lawyers and commentators from across the spectrum because it protects people of all views,” said The Christian Institute deputy director Simon Calvert.“Judges at the UK’s highest court could not have been clearer in their decision: Ashers’ objection to the cake was to the message, not Gareth Lee himself.”last_img read more

EOLINK Floater Readying For Sea Trials

first_imgThe Bretagne-based startup EOLINK has secured funds to install and test a 1/10 scale floating wind turbine prototype off France.Source: EOLINKIn the first round of funding, EOLINK received EUR 1 million in funding from investors such as Angels Finistere, as well as private investors.According to EOLINK, the 1/10 scale prototype will be installed nearshore by the end of the year, while the precise location and more key features are to be unveiled soon.Back in October 2016, EOLINK performed tank testing of a 1:50 scale model of its floating wind turbine, which is said to allow the utilization of +10MW wind turbines and reduction of the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of 25%.The tests showed that the turbine is able to withstand very harsh sea states with low mooring lines tensions (Hs>12m) and that it always faces the wind, even in the worst case scenario: 90° misalignment between wind and waves.The concept involves a set of profiled arms instead of a conventional single tower. Having a turbine mounted on a single tower induces vibrations and bending moment at the base, and with floating application this tower is no longer mandatory, EOLINK said, adding that its concept replaces the single tower by a set of thin and profiled arms, making the structure lighter and stiffer and saving on materials used, which leads to decreasing the LCOE.last_img read more
