Foundation for a Drug-Free World Florida Chapter Offers Truth About Drugs Seminars to Parents and Kids Alike

Award-winning Truth About Drugs documentary film is shown at FDFW Florida downtown Clearwater headquarters.

It is important that parents get educated and get the facts, so they can talk to their kids about drugs.”

— Julieta Santagostino,President of the FDFW Fl Chapter

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, March 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW) Florida chapter offers weekly informational seminars to the public, at no cost. The seminars use the group’s Truth About Drugs education materials, delivering real information about drugs, their short-term and long-term effects, and the dangers of drug abuse. Seminars are held every Wednesday at 7:00PM at the Foundation for a Drug-Free World Florida’s information center located at 41 North Fort Harrison Avenue, Clearwater, Florida, 33755.

Each seminar takes up a specific drug: marijuana, alcohol, prescription drugs, synthetic drugs, opioids and more. Seminar speakers also discuss how to recognize the signs of drug abuse and how to talk to your kids about drugs with attendees.

Per a study done by Colombia University, seven out of ten teenagers have been offered an illegal drug. However, per the National Institute on Drug Abuse, teens whose parents talk to them about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs.

“It is important that parents get educated and get the facts, so they can talk to their kids about drugs,” said Julieta Santagostino the President of the FDFW Florida chapter.

The events are always free, and refreshments are served. Youth are encouraged to attend, along with their parents. Contact the FDFW center to RSVP at 727-467-6962 or email info.fl@drugfreeworld.org.

The Truth About Drugs materials are used by parents, teachers, counselors, law enforcement and many others who work with youth, providing true information to counter the lies and myths found in movies, social media, passed on by friends, and stated by drug dealers.

About the Foundation for a Drug-Free World:

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a non-profit organization that educates youth and the community on the truth about drugs so they can make the right decision to live drug-free. The Church of Scientology is a sponsor of the program making it possible for the Foundation to provide educational materials at no cost to educators, law enforcement and the community.

The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay Volunteers Step in to Clean up America’s #1 Litter Item

Volunteers from The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay remove over 2,000 of America’s number 1 litter item – cigarette butts – from a Clearwater neighborhood,thus reducing toxins in the environment.

Studies have shown water infested by the toxins of cigarette butts are killing fish within a matter of days. We have to take care and help our planet.”

— Tanja Cranton, ED of TWTH Association of Tampa Bay

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, March 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On March 30th, dozens of volunteers from The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay took action in Clearwater’s Gateway neighborhood to remove America’s #1 litter item, cigarette butts, as well as trash from the grounds. With littering not only bad for the environment but also for the community spirit, volunteers have been trash collecting every Saturday and Sunday morning for the past four weeks and have so far removed over 2,000 cigarette butts and collected 165lbs of trash.

The problem of littering, especially cigarette butts, is a bigger problem than one might think, as unbeknown to many, cigarette butts contain plastic filters which can take up to a decade to decompose. The Way to Happiness volunteers have become aware of this issue and are stepping up to clean the neighborhood of the litter carelessly thrown on the ground, curtailing further harm to the ground, water and wild life.

“This issue of cigarette butt litter is something which needs to be tackled, said Tanja Cranton, Executive Direction of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay. “Studies have shown water infested by the toxins of cigarette butts are killing fish within a matter of days. We have to take care and help our planet.”

The Way to Happiness volunteers base their actions on the 21 common sense principles for better living in L. Ron Hubbard’s 1981 The Way to Happiness book. One principle he outlines states, “Help take care of the planet. The idea that one has a share in the planet and that one can and should help care for it may seem very large and, to some, quite beyond reality. But today what happens on the other side of the world, even so far away, can effect what happens in your own home.”

The Way to Happiness is one of nine humanitarian outreach programs sponsored by the Church of Scientology (http://www.scientology.tv).

For more information on the program or to join in the cleanup projects, please contact The Way to Happiness Community Center on 33 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater FL 33755. Open daily from 10am – 10pm or call: (727) 467 6961.

The Way to Happiness

The Way to Happiness booklet, written by L. Ron Hubbard, is available in 115 languages, with some 115 million copies distributed in 186 nations. The campaign to distribute the book has been embraced by more than 257,000 groups and individuals. The booklet holds the Guinness World Record as the single most-translated nonreligious book and fills the moral vacuum in an increasingly materialistic society. The Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay opened their headquarters in downtown Clearwater on July 11th, 2015.

Lance LoRusso Launces Parallax: True Crime Tales

Inspired By Real Life Stories Law Enforcement Has Confronted

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES , March 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Parallax: True Crime Tales, a story of true crime tales, (AISN B07NDK7XGL, Lanier Press, 2019) by Lance LoRusso has been released on Kindle. Written in an easy to read style, it is a series of fictional stories based on the harsh realities faced by law enforcement officers in the performance of their duties and stories recounted to LoRusso by officers over the years. Among the breathtaking and gut-wrenching stories readers will encounter in Parallax: True Crime Tales are – law enforcement officers coming face-to-face with a sociopath serial killer; others tracking down and apprehending a depraved child abductor; and other officers grieving over the death of one their own struck down far too early in the line of duty. LoRusso, himself a former law enforcement officer before becoming an attorney, also draws on his past experiences to portray the skills and techniques officers use to solve crimes in both an accurate and engaging way. Written in an easy to read and gritty style, Parallax: True Crime Tales has been compared to crime thrillers by Michael Connelly and James Patterson. This is the first in a series of true crime stories being penned by LoRusso who is known to thousands across the world for his earlier works of nonfiction, When Cops Kill and Blue News, and the Christian/law enforcement novel, Peacemaking. Parallax: True Crime Tales is his first foray into the world of fictional police procedurals. The Kindle version is available on Amazon for $6.95.

“The reader of Parallax: True Crime Tales will be taken into a world of crime, tragedy, terror, courage, and triumph in these true-to-life tales,” said Lance LoRusso, author of Parallax: True Crime Tales. “While these stories may sound like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster, they are truly inspired by my experiences on the force and the realities law enforcement officers confront daily.”

“I want readers to enjoy the thrilling aspects of these stories, but also hope that they will walk away with a deeper appreciation of law enforcement officers, the true unsung heroes of this nation,” continued LoRusso. “People often forget that each officer knows when leaving home that they may not come home if they do their jobs and fulfill their oaths of office, but they never hesitate to do so. Parallax: True Crime Tales are a tribute to these officers’ stories.”

NEW YORK, NY, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, March 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fine Art Shippers is pleased to introduce Kadir ARSLAN, an Istanbul-based artist whose incredible paintings were exhibited at the recent edition of ARTAnkara International Contemporary Art Fair held in Ankara, Turkey on March 14-17. Kadir ARSLAN is a very talented artist, and we would like to recommend his work to anyone who is looking for high-quality contemporary art with a twist!

As an international fine art shipping company with agents and offices throughout the world, Fine Art Shippers has the honor of working with many prominent artists whose works are held in the permanent collections of the leading museums in the United States and abroad. We ship fine art for them, support in organizing gallery exhibitions, do art installation works, and provide them with a wide range of other services. Besides, we love to help young and upcoming artists whose incredible talent is unquestionable. We assist them with art logistics and do our best to spread their art and innovative ideas around the globe. One of these artists is Kadir ARSLAN, and we are delighted to share his work with the world.

Kadir ARSLAN is a Kurdish artist who lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey. Born in 1986, he has been fascinated with art all of his life, a passion that began with drawing on notebooks and schoolbooks in his early years. When ARSLAN was in primary school, his art teacher recognized the boy’s talent and encouraged him to join the talent exam, which marked the beginning of his artistic journey.

After graduation from Nevit Kodalli Fine Arts High School in Mersin in 2005, Kadir ARSLAN continued his education at Çukurova University in Adana, where he studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts for four years. ARSLAN’s career started right after his graduation from the university when the young artist opened his own studio in Istanbul. However, due to a car accident in 2010, which led to serious health problems, Kadir ARSLAN had to leave art for five years. He returned to painting only in 2015. The same year, ARSLAN opened his studio in Istanbul again and began working as a professional artist full time.

Kadir ARSLAN specializes in acrylic, ink, oil, and mixed-media paintings, with a focus on portraits. The artist believes that art has its own soul and character, and this is exactly what inspires him to create his absolutely stunning artworks. Besides, ARSLAN’s paintings have many symbolic references to Middle Eastern culture and history, which makes them special and undoubtedly very interesting.

At Fine Art Shippers, we wish Kadir ARSLAN a lot of success and all the best in his endeavors! He is an amazing artist, and his work deserves wider recognition and greater awareness outside of Turkey. Very recommended!

Colonial Flag Foundation launches its FIRST Virtual Healing Field® flag display to
raise funds and awareness to prevent child abuse

SANDY, UT, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Colonial Flag Foundation has joined forces with Operation Underground Railroad & National Exchange Club to end child abuse. Each year approximately 3 million children are reported as abused in the U.S. – sadly, that number is growing.

The Colonial Flag Foundation has raised over $42 million dollars to help charities through its Healing Field® and Field of Honor® flag display events. Now, for the first time, it is hosting a Virtual Healing Field® flag display to raise funds to end child abuse and give the victims of abuse more resources.

Virtual Healing Field® Flag Display Program
Beginning on April 1st through April 30th, 2019 Colonial Flag Foundation and its partners Operation Underground Railroad and the National Exchange Club will launch in a national effort the first Virtual Healing Field® Flag Display where individuals across the country can stand together in a united effort against child abuse.

For a $5 donation, individuals, churches, businesses and organizations can sponsor a flag. Sponsored flags will be flown on our Virtual Map to raise funds while at the same time inspiring others and show support in ending child abuse.

Flags may be posted ‘in memory’ of someone and may include a short bio or a short message.

Watch our virtual flag postings increase as communities and organizations across America unite to end child abuse: www.healingfield.org/childabuseprevention/.

Please take advantage of this unique opportunity and spread the word with your audience.

About Colonial Flag Foundation
The Colonial Flag Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit which develops and implements meaningful programs to help bring awareness, educate and raise funds for organizations around the country.

About Operation Underground Railroad
Operation Underground Railroad is a 501(C)(3) non-profit founded by Tim Ballard which assists governments around the world in the rescue of human trafficking and sex trafficking victims, with a special focus on children. O.U.R. also aids with planning, prevention, capture, and prosecution of offenders, and works with partner organizations for prevention, victim recovery, strengthened awareness, and fundraising efforts.
In the United States, child sex trafficking can intersect with domestic child abuse. When a victim is
trafficked by a family member, very often domestic violence is also taking place. Violence in the home can
also cause victims to become more vulnerable to being trafficked outside of the home, as both abusers and
traffickers use similar tactics, including power and control, to dominate their victims.

Understanding the intersection between domestic child abuse and sex trafficking is extremely important for
raising awareness of the realities of what survivors and victims’ face. (Unicef, NRCDV.org)

About National Exchange Club
National Exchange Club is celebrating their 40th anniversary of adopting Child Abuse Prevention as a National Project. Colonial Flag Foundation has partnered with many local Exchange Clubs to post Blue Ribbon Flags to raise awareness of the magnitude of this tragedy while raising funds to develop and support programs to break the cycle of abuse.

In his new article, Kamal Pourmoghadam, MD explains in layman’s terms how cholesterol is bad for your health and how one can lower the cholesterol level.

Dr. Kamal K. Pourmoghadam (N/A:N/A)

Lack of physical activity is a common cause behind high cholesterol which is why it is necessary to engage in exercises on a daily basis.”

— Dr. Kamal Pourmoghadam, Orlando, Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cholesterol, a type of waxy substance found in every human body, is a natural byproduct of the liver. This fat can be found in every cell of a human body and helps the skin, brain, and other organs to function properly. Cholesterol can also be artificially consumed from food items such as eggs, butter, cheese, meat, and milk. While the human body does need cholesterol in order to digest fat and produce hormones like estrogen and testosterone, and vitamin D, excessive cholesterol poses severe health risks.

Medical doctor and surgeon Kamal Pourmoghadam, MD has published an informational article on this subject. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Pourmoghadam at https://drpourmoghadam.home.blog/ Read this article to infer the harmful effects of high cholesterol and how to lower your cholesterol level.

Effects of Having High Cholesterol Levels

High cholesterol levels in the body develop fatty deposits in your blood vessels. These deposits gradually grow which stiffens the blood vessels. As a result, it becomes hard for the blood to flow in your arteries. In some cases, high cholesterol is inherited as someone in your family may also have high cholesterol. However, most of the times, it is a result of an unhealthy lifestyle – poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, and obesity. High Cholesterol eventually leads to the following life-threatening results:

1. Chest Pain
High cholesterol causes the accumulation of fat in unacceptable quantities and allows other deposits to build-up on the walls of your arteries. All of this reduces the smooth flow of blood in the body and causes severe chest pain.

2. Heart Attack
A blood clotting occurs when the cholesterol level is high. This, again, blocks your blood to flow and cause your arteries to break. This further prevents the blood flow to reach your heart and may cause a heart attack.

3. Heart Stroke
Heart strokes occur when a blood clot forms near the plaque or rupture. This prevents your blood to flow to your brain, ultimately leading to heart stroke.

How to Lower Your Cholesterol Level

Unfortunately, high cholesterol has no significant or apparent symptoms. The only way to identify if you have it is through a blood test. It is always smart to ask your doctor whether you should have a cholesterol test or not.

Usually, children and young adults, posing no risks for heart illnesses, are examined between the ages of 9 to 11 and then between the ages of 17 to 19. In case, your blood test results show spikes of high cholesterol level; your doctor will recommend certain medications to reduce your high cholesterol and some lifestyle changes to improve your cholesterol intensity.

1. Consume Foods Packed with Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids, typically found in fish and flaxseed, is incredibly important to your body and have plenty of health benefits. However, the most significant benefit is that it improves heart health and thus reduces blood pressure. Eat food items rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as herring, salmon, fish, walnuts, flaxseeds, and mackerel.

2. Eliminate Saturated Fat from Your Diet
Saturated fat is primarily found in red meat and whole-fat dairy products. The regular or frequent consumption of saturated fats can increase your cholesterol level. Hence, it becomes crucial to lowering the intake of saturated fats. This positive change in your diet will help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol which is notorious for being the “bad” cholesterol.

3. Regular Exercise
Lack of physical activity is a common cause behind high cholesterol which is why it is necessary to engage in exercises on a daily basis. Doing simple forms of exercises like walking, jogging, running, or cycling regularly can help make your heart stronger and keep heart diseases at bay. If possible, you can engage in aerobic exercises as they are terrific at lowering high cholesterol levels. Furthermore, exercising daily is a powerful mean to boosts your HDL (good) cholesterol and lowers your LDL (bad) cholesterol. Make sure that you exercise 30 minutes or more every day in the morning or evening.

4. Avoid Eating Trans Fats
Trans fats are often listed down as “partially hydrogenated vegetable oil” on food items like margarine, cakes, cookies, chips, and biscuits. According to the Food and Drug Administration, trans fats increase the risk of cholesterol level which is why you should avoid eating foods that contain trans fats.

Incorporate these healthy measures into your daily life if you have high cholesterol and you will definitely experience positive effects in no time.

Old Slings New Injuries/New Slings New Injuries

Dr. Greg Vigna

Despite being banned in several countries, the TVM devices used for SUI continue to be implanted in the USA and are known to cause catastrophic pain syndromes.

The second round of litigation has begun now that the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) is closed to ‘new cases’ caused by old and newly implanted devices.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Plastic polypropylene transvaginal mesh (TVM) devices used for the surgical management of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women are of two different designs – the transobturator sling (TOT or TVT-O) and the retropubic sling (TVT). The transobturator sling passes through the obturator space into the thigh, while the retropubic sling hammocks the urethra and exits up and out behind the pubic bone.

Despite being banned in several countries, the TVM devices used for SUI continue to be implanted in the United States. These devices are known to cause disability, sexual dysfunction, and catastrophic pain syndromes. Not only do these devices provided no added increased efficacy compared to non-mesh surgical procedures for SUI, there is little research evidence to support that these devices are safe long-term as they degrade and shrink up to 30% of original size after implantation.

Transobturator slings cause pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 2. Retropubic slings cause injury to the pudendal nerve branch to the clitoris and cause Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1. These diagnoses are known for their disabling vaginal pain what makes sexual intercourse impossible, pelvic pain that reduces mobility to a sedentary level, and bowel and bladder dysfunction that may include an inability to evacuate the bowels and bladder associated with severe anorectal pain.

New injuries are being diagnosed every day caused from newly implanted slings and new injuries are being caused by devices implanted over a decade ago as they shrink and degrade resulting in traction on muscles and nerves. Other injuries include pelvic pain, groin pain, painful bladder filling, vulvar allodynia making it impossible to wear tight pants, and erosions.

Dr. Greg Vigna, practicing physician, damages expert, and national pharmaceutical injury attorney states, “The second round of litigation has begun now that the Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) is closed to ‘new cases’ caused by old and newly implanted devices." These ‘new cases’ are being filed in state courts by attorneys he works with across the country and there will be no mass settlements at the expense of the most injured. Dr. Vigna adds, “These cases will be going on for the next twenty years, well after TVM slings are removed from the market.”

Dr. Vigna, with his coalition of leading pharmaceutical injury attorneys, represents women with neurological complications caused by TVM devices used for pelvic organ prolapse and SUI that are in the Wave proceedings in the MDL against Boston Scientific Corporation and Ethicon, Inc. and newly filed cases in State Courts.
