Opioid use increases risk of death in older adults after outpatient surgery, study says

Health
Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Older adults who used opioid pain medications before minor surgery were up to 68% more likely to die within 90 days of the procedure compared with those who never used the drugs, an analysis published Wednesday by JAMA Surgery found.

Always looking ahead at how far still to climb, rather than stopping to admire the v...

After Bond film delay, which movies make the big screen in 2020?

Entertainment
It's not been a good year for cinema. 2020 box office sales are forecast to be the lowest in in nearly 30 years, with almost £1bn wiped from ticket returns due to coronavirus.With lockdown, followed by strict social distancing restrictions, it's no surprise that UK cinema admissions are set to reach their lowest point since records began. Recent news that the 25th James Bond movie No Time To Die would be pushed back to 2021 was a gut punch to struggling venues counting on the draw of the universally popular British spy franchise to get people back into the auditorium.
