Many U.S. pharmacies don't offer opioid overdose antidote

Many U.S. pharmacies don't offer opioid overdose antidote

Health
Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Many pharmacies don't offer the drug that can save the lives of people suffering from opioid overdoses, according to three new studies. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association on Tuesday reported 25 percent of pharmacies it surveyed in Texas didn't have naloxone in stock, even as the National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that more than 115 people die each day from opioid overdoses. The drug reverses the effects of opioid overdose, but 84 percent of Texas pharmacies would give out the drug to customers without a prescription. "More naloxone in the hands of friends and family can save lives," researchers wrote in a new survey of Texas pharmacies. One reason for reluctance on behalf of some pharmacies to give out naloxone could stem fr...
Migrants nix offer to stay in Mexico, continue trek to US

Migrants nix offer to stay in Mexico, continue trek to US

World
More than a hundred Mexican federal officers carrying plastic shields abandoned a blockade they had formed on a bridge Saturday, allowing a caravan of thousands of Central American migrants to advance toward the United States. The officers ended the standoff after representatives from Mexico's National Human Rights Commission told police that a rural stretch of highway without shade, toilets or water was no place for migrants to entertain a government offer of asylum in Mexico, which is why police said they set up the blockade. Police boarded buses and headed further down the highway, while migrants cheered and vowed to trek all the way to the U.S. border despite fierce opposition from President Donald Trump. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto launched a program on Friday dubbed "You a...

Business
Oct. 15 (UPI) -- The Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala group cited "markets instability" as it on Monday delayed selling a 25 percent stake in the Spain-based oil company Cepsa, a multinational that is highly exposed to crude oil prices -- and which coincidentally also suffered a refinery fire on Monday. "Mubadala has decided to delay the public offer for the sale of shares in progress ... as they consider that the instability suffered by the markets affects the valuation of the company," Cepsa said in a press release Monday about the interruption of plans to list in the Madrid stock exchange as soon as this week. "As a long-term investor, we will consider returning to the market when we believe conditions are favorable," said Mubadala CEO Musabbeh Al Kaabi. The company is highly exposed to crude ...

Meteorite's blue crystals offer insights into young sun's chemistry

Meteorite's blue crystals offer insights into young sun's chemistry

Science
July 30 (UPI) -- Scientists have found minerals old enough to shed light on the composition and behavior of the sun shortly after its birth, 4.6 billion years ago. The composition of the ancient blue hibonite crystals found inside the remnants of a 4.5 billion-year-old meteorite suggest the sun was spewing a plethora of high-energy particles during its earliest years. "The sun was very active in its early life -- it had more eruptions and gave off a more intense stream of charged particles," Philipp Heck, a curator at the Field Museum and a professor at the University of Chicago, said in a news release. Just as the sun was born, the newborn star was surrounded by a thick, swirling circumstellar disk of gas and dust. The disk hosted temperatures upwards of 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit. As the ...
