The last few trading sessions have given me cause to worry. I think we are headed to volatile times in more way than one.

I've just seen reference to "pressed' Xans on another thread.  What does this mean? Any difference to normal production methods which might impact quality or does it not matter?

  G@bapentin/preg@balin for anxiety?
Posted by: thegreaseman - 02-08-2018, 09:32 PM - Forum: Anxiety Depression & Stress - Replies (20)

Has anyone been prescribed either of these two medications for anxiety? I just am now seeing a new psychiatrist and she prescribed me 2 300 mg g@bapentin 3x a day when needed for anxiety. She expressed her reluctance to prescribe benz0s. If you have taken this before did it help you with anxiety? What is the addiction potential like? Any nasty side effects? I know tinnitus is one. Thank you.

  Facial Recognition sunglasses cuz arrests in china

China OUT

The future of China's criminals isn't so bright thanks to police officers' new shades that some find frighteningly powerful.

Sunglasses with facial recognition capabilities that can identify potential suspects on the fly were heralded by state media in the People's Republic this week.

Reports said that seven people accused of crimes including human trafficking had already been nabbed with the new technology, which was put into practice at a train station in Zhengzhou.

The sunglasses are connected to a handheld database that allows pictures taken by the glasses to almost instantly find matches of those known to police.

China has also been pioneering the use of hundreds of millions of surveillance cameras with facial recognition of its more than 1 billion citizens.

The sunglasses cameras given to officers on the ground are viewed as more attuned to catching people in busy locations where they have time to disappear into a crowd before police respond to alerts from a fixed camera.

"The potential to give individual police officers facial-recognition technology in sunglasses could eventually make China's surveillance state all the more ubiquitous," Amnesty International researcher William Nee told the Wall Street Journal.

Facial recognition technology mounted on vehicles is also being tested in other countries such as the United Kingdom, where police including those in London have trialed it at sporting events and street parades.

Advances have also made facial recognition technology cheaper and more available in recent years, leading to his use in devices such as the iPhone X.

  Hello Everyone!!! I am New here!
Posted by: PatsFan - 02-08-2018, 02:04 AM - Forum: Welcome - Replies (17)

Hey guys. Hope everyone is well, I’ve been meaning to write since I registered but kept getting sidetracked. Now that football season is over I have more time and can actually sit, browse, post and hopefully be an active member here. I’m also on PR but it’s such a huge site that I find it can be overwhelming at times. I’ve been a senior member over there for a couple years but since the originally seized last year I haven’t been as active on the new domain. I know a lot of the senior members aren’t really worried and say it’s all good and we’re protected in the new domain but I’m not 100% comfortable anymore. It may just be a weird coincidence but I received a few random messages about sources and that never happened until the domain switch. Rumors of LE trolling the site doesn’t help my comfort level. Don’t get me wrong, I love the folks there, made a few friends I talk to off the forum and overall it’s helped me over the years so I don’t want to come off as bashing the site. I’m just more of a small crowd guy, play it safe and lay low.
Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. I’m from the US, I have a love hate relationship for usps,customs drives me absolutely nuts sometimes and I’m happy to be here and Look forward to talking to some new folks.

Whew. I felt like the new kid in HS that had to stand up and introduce themselves...*cringe* I hope I did alright.

Herbal supplement kratom contains opioids, regulators say

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. health authorities say an herbal supplement promoted as an alternative pain remedy contains the same chemicals found in opioids, the addictive family of drugs at the center of a national addiction crisis.
The Food and Drug Administration analysis, published Tuesday, makes it more likely that the supplement, kratom, could be banned by the federal government.
The FDA also said it has identified 44 reports of death involving kratom since 2011, up from 36 reported in November.

Sold in various capsules and powders, kratom has gained popularity in the U.S. as a treatment for pain, anxiety and drug dependence. Proponents argue that the substance is safer than opioid painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin, which have contributed to an epidemic of drug abuse. More than 63,000 Americans died in 2016 from drug overdoses, mostly from opioids.

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb reiterated that there are no FDA-approved medical uses for kratom, which is derived from a plant native to Southeast Asia.
"Claiming that kratom is benign because it's 'just a plant' is shortsighted and dangerous," Gottlieb said in a statement. "It's an opioid. And it's an opioid that's associated with novel risks because of the variability in how it's being formulated, sold and used recreationally."

FDA scientists analyzed the 25 most common chemical compounds in kratom and concluded that they behave like those found in opioids including morphine.
Kratom remains legal under federal law. But FDA inspectors have been seizing and destroying shipments at international mail facilities for months.

The FDA has submitted its review to the Drug Enforcement Administration, which is considering whether to place kratom in the same category of illegal drugs as heroin and LSD. The agency was poised to take that step in the summer of 2016, but delayed a decision after a flood of public complaints, including a letter signed by 62 members of Congress and a protest at the White House by kratom supporters.
There is no timeframe for the DEA's final decision.
