An estimated 5 million Americans are taking ADHD medicines. Accidental overdoses and side effects from attention deficit drugs likely send thousands of children and adults to emergency rooms, according to the first national estimates of the problem. Scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated problems with the stimulant drugs drive nearly 3,100 people to ERs each year. Nearly two-thirds – overdoses and accidental use – could be prevented by parents locking the pills away, the researchers say. Other patients had side effects, including potential cardiac problems such as chest pain, stroke, high blood pressure and fast heart rate. Concerns over those effects have led some doctors to urge the Food and Drug Administration to require a “black box,” its most serious warning, on package inserts for drugs such as Ritalin, Concerta and Adderall. Yet even doctors advising the FDA don’t agree on whether that’s warranted. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Blind schoolgirl Keri Kelly has taken her first steps in her bid to restore her sight after flying to China for revolutionary treatment.The little Buncrana girl, 9, had her first stem cell treatment and doctors at the Beike Clinic in Qingdao say she is responding well.Keri’s mum Tracey, who flew to China with her daughter for the month long series of treatments last week, said her daughter is being really brave. “She has been great. She was a little afraid about the thought of needles but she said it didn’t hurt at all. I’m so proud of her,” said Tracey.Tracey said Keri could get her sight back very soon or it may take a long time.“We just don’t know when it will happen but hopefully it will eventually. All we can do is to hope and pray,” said Tracey from Buncrana.Keri, who has been blind since birth, was born with optic nerve hypoplasia which means her optic nerves have never grown. She has told loving mum Tracey that the first thing she wants to see if she gets her sight back is her face and a rainbow!The Scoil Iosagain pupil will have her first lumbar puncture on Friday as part of a total of eight treatments.Her trip to China and her chance to see again was made possibly only by the people of Buncrana and Co Donegal who raised more than €45,000 for Keri – €30,000 of which is being spent on the trip to China.As well as her major treatments, Keri is also getting daily treatments including electrowave therapy, head massage, acupuncture and fire-cupping.Tracey says she has met families from across the world including Germany, America and Argentina whose children are also hoping the stem-cell will give their children their sight back. “People have been so good and every is really nice. We are all parents and we just want to do whatever we can to make our children’s lives better,” she said.EndsKERI RESPONDING WELL TO ‘MIRACLE’ TREATMENT TO HELP HER SEE AGAIN was last modified: October 12th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ChinaKeri Kellystem cell treatmentTracey Kelly
CHINO – The Don Lugo Conquistadores opened league play with an impressive 44-13 victory over the Diamond Ranch Panthers on Friday at Chino High School. Don Lugo senior quarterback Andrew Hernandez led the Conquistadores with long passes throughout the game, connecting on touchdown tosses of 38 and 61 yards, while the Don Lugo running combination of Dorian Brown and Delonne Yu ran all over the Diamond Ranch defense.

Montclair coach Steve Sullivant must have taken a page from USC coach Pete Carroll as his team made the necessary second-half adjustments. “All we did was adjust and focus on the two key players Colony had, No. 32 on offense and 17 on defense,” Sullivant said. When it was all said and done, middle linebacker Thomas Marasco had three interceptions and sophomore quarterback Justin Orona threw for four touchdowns for Montclair. “Our offense, defense, and special teams all clicked tonight, and it couldn’t have come at a better time” said Don Lugo coach Greg Setlich. “We knew what a talented football team they are … With their speed they can score at any time.” Diamond Ranch could not score at any time however. Panthers quarterback Joshua Sifuentes made a valiant effort in the air and Corey Nolen ran extremely well (Diamond Ranch ran little in the second half), but both were stopped by the domination of Don Lugo’s overpowering defense. Don Lugo began the season at 0-3, and has bounced back to 3-3. Montclair 41, Colony 17: At halftime, it appeared that the Montclair Cavaliers were ready to roll over in their Mt.

A decision has yet to be made on whether the faces and names of judges will be made public. Witnesses might get some type of protection, perhaps by screening their identities. Reporters will watch the proceedings in the courtroom, and some photography will be allowed. But TV cameras are not expected to be allowed the first few days of the trial. It is unclear whether they will be added later. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Saddam Hussein will be tried in a heavily guarded courtroom under rules grounded in international law but deviating from past war-crimes tribunals on key points. The major difference with recent trials is that Saddam faces the death penalty as a possible sentence. And unlike most similar cases since World War II, he will be tried by his own countrymen. The tribunal was set up by an interim Iraqi government created by U.S. occupation authorities, although the court is now overseen by a democratically elected Iraqi government. There will be no jury. The chief judge will question witnesses, and all five judges will decide the guilt or innocence of Saddam and his seven co-defendants. The judges will be permitted to draw help from international advisers. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Saddam will sit with his co-defendants, probably behind protective glass. He will have the right to call witnesses and, if convicted, to lodge numerous appeals before any sentence could be carried out. Each defendant will have at least one lawyer. If convicted, Saddam can appeal to a nine-judge tribunal that is part of the special Iraqi tribunal set up to investigate crimes allegedly committed by Saddam and others during his 23-year rule. If the sentence is upheld after all appeals are exhausted, then it must be implemented within 30 days, regardless of other judicial proceedings. If Saddam should be sentenced to death, that means he could be executed while some of the dozen or so trials he is expected to face go unfinished. The charges in this case have not yet been specifically spelled out, but are expected to be laid out on the first day. The case centers on the role of Saddam and his co-defendants in a 1982 massacre of 143 people in Dujail, a mainly Shiite Muslim town north of Baghdad, after a failed assassination attempt. Saddam is not expected to enter a plea at the inaugural session. Instead, his lawyer is expected to ask for a delay, meaning the court could adjourn for several weeks after the initial day or two.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week NBA commissioner David Stern briefly stepped into the role of Mr. Mom in an attempt to introduce a cleaner, more presentable image to the league’s fans and sponsors. Players no longer can arrive at or leave games wearing headphones, sunglasses while indoors, T-shirts, shorts, sleeveless shirts or chains, medallions or pendants. They’re also forbidden to wear replica or throwback jerseys and baseball caps to postgame news conferences. And if a player doesn’t suit up for a game, he must wear a sports coat on the bench. Stern wanted to come up with a dress code that wouldn’t restrict his players. So he picked one that wouldn’t bother his owners, either. “What we came up with is a dress code that even Mark Cuban could comply with – if he wanted to,” Stern said Tuesday. But players, predictably, had a different take on the matter. “Most people dress according to their culture and their ethnic background,” said Pistons forward Dale Davis, a 14-year veteran. “You almost embrace the culture, and now it’s taken away. That’s tough.” Stern spoke after addressing the Executive Forum on Sports and Social Responsibility, where he announced the league’s “NBA Cares” initiative, which he guaranteed will raise and donate $100 million to charity over the next five years. But instead of getting questions about how the players were going to clean up the communities, he got more about how he planned to clean up the players. And although Stern knows some players will be critical of the policy, he said there was no reason to be as even jeans are still allowed. “As it’s properly understood, it will be embraced,” he said. “The union’s fine with it. It’s quite liberal and easygoing.” Cleveland star LeBron James was among those who saw the reasoning behind the new rules. “Sometimes you feel lazy on a flight and you don’t want to put (dress) clothes on,” James said. “But this is a job and we want to have fun, but it’s a job and we should look like we’re going to work.” Stern pointed out that when the topic was brought up during collective bargaining, the teams “preferred that we do it as a group.” Even so, many NBA players are more comfortable dressing like the fans they cater to. And Cuban, the maverick owner of the Dallas Mavericks, often dresses in T-shirts and jerseys. “We don’t really sell to big business,” Phoenix guard Raja Bell said. “We sell to kids and people who are into the NBA hip-hop world. They may be marketing to the wrong people with this.” But, as Stern pointed out, the reputation of the league’s players had fallen to a point that was “not as good as our players are.” That’s why he believes – and insists – the players will readily go along with his policy. “We have a minimum standard that we’ve set that reflects on the professionals in our sport and you’re going to do it,” he said. “We’re certain that it will be complied with.” Associated Press writer Tom Withers in Cleveland and Detroit Free Press writer Chris Silva contributed to this report. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
