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.

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.

Things to Consider When Getting a Divorce – advice from family law attorney Janet Reed

The new article by family lawyer Janet Reed highlights the most important things to consider before divorce to avoid any issues during the divorce process.

The Law Office of Attorney Janet Pittman Reed (N/A:N/A)

The process of divorce will become a lot smoother, if you and your partner can reach a divorce property settlement on your own.”

— Janet Pittman Reed, lawyer in North Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Divorce is painful; there are no two views about it. But, how smooth or difficult the divorce process can be depends on a variety of factors. Even if a couple has mutually decided to end their relationship, there are many things that can create (or avoid) problems. That is why it is extremely important to discuss these matters with your partner and your lawyer before filing for a divorce.

Attorney Janet Reed, based in North Carolina, has published an advice article on considerations in a divorce case. The complete article will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/ Here are some of the things to consider before divorce to avoid any issues later on:

* How It Will Affect Your Children?

The biggest concern for parents who have decided to part ways is how their children will take it. One of the common reasons why many people choose to stay in unhappy relationships rather than separating or getting a divorce is because they are concerned about their children.

How unhappy relationships affect children is another debate, which is beyond the scope of this article. But, if you have decided to end your marriage, there are many things that you should consider about your children, like their emotional well-being, how close they are to each parent, and if they are capable of coping with transitions or dealing with losses.

Expecting your children to not get affected by your divorce is unrealistic, but you can definitely make the divorce process and transition easier for them. These factors will help you determine what you need to do.

You may need to deal with every child differently because every child deals with and responds to such situations in a different manner. You may consider scheduling a few sessions with a family therapist for advice or even take your children there.

However you choose to deal with your children, here are a few things that you should not do:

* Never fight with your partner in front of the children.
* Never act meanly or spitefully with your partner in front of the children.
* Never talk to them about each other.
* Try your best to settle the matter of children custody out of court. Custody cases often cause emotional disturbances and can affect children’s mental health. Lastly, you should clearly talk about child maintenance with your partner to make sure your children’s financial future is secure.
* How Will the Assets Be Divided? A divorce is not just about signing a paper and living in separate houses. It is a long and often complicated process that requires considering a lot of factors; division of assets is one of the most common reasons for disputes in divorce cases.

Some of the assets that are most commonly contested in cases of divorce are: house, cars, retirement benefits and other securities, savings, and valuable items, like jewels and antiques, and anything else that was bought with joint finances. It may come as a surprise to some people, but issues also arise over the division of household items.

When it comes to the division of assets in divorce, one of the most common misconceptions is that the items that are individually owned by one partner will remain in their custody and not need to be divided. According to divorce laws, house, vehicles, and retirement benefits are some of the items that are considered joint or marital property even if they are registered in the name of one partner.

The process of divorce will become a lot smoother, if you and your partner can reach a divorce property settlement on your own. If you are having difficulty in reaching a mutually acceptable agreement, then you can consult state laws. While there are specific laws on division of assets in case of a divorce, they vary across states, so make sure to consult a divorce attorney to know about state laws.

Build a Support Network

While it is important to settle all the things that can create any issue in the divorce process before filing the case, do not ignore your emotional well-being in the process. Divorce has been considered as one of the most stressful experiences of life. To prevent it from taking a toll on your mental and emotional health, make sure to surround yourself with positive and supportive people.

Building a support network is as important as it to hire a divorce lawyer and reach the best possible divorce settlement agreement.

Education Scholarship Accounts Expand Choice for Students and Families

GPPFLOGO

Georgia Public Policy Foundation publishes 2 op-eds on benefits of ESAs for schools, districts, states

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It's difficult to distinguish between facts and myths about education scholarship accounts: what they are, what they do, who they benefit, and how they work – or not – elsewhere.

The Georgia Public Policy Foundation, a state-focused, independent, nonprofit think tank, has published two op-eds about education scholarship accounts (ESAs, also known as education savings accounts) to help clear up confusion and explain the benefits of such education choice programs. Permission to reprint these op-eds in whole or in part is hereby granted, provided the authors and their affiliations are cited.

The first commentary is by Dr. Jeffrey H. Dorfman, a professor of economics at the University of Georgia whose study demonstrates that students who remain in a district are not hurt by the departure of a student who obtains an ESA that does not exceed the level of state per-pupil funding for that district.

Read "The Truth About Education Scholarship Accounts," by Dorfman.

The second commentary is by Dr. Matt Ladner, a senior research strategist for the Arizona Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Ladner provides perspective on the lessons, challenges and solutions in Arizona, where the first education savings account was created in 2011.

Read "ESA Trailblazer Arizona Paves Way, Provides Lessons for States," by Ladner.

21 CFR Part 11 Compliance for SaaS/Cloud Applications

21 CFR Part 11 Compliance for SaaS/Cloud Applications

ComplianceOnline and subject matter expert, David Nettleton, will conduct a two day seminar on 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance for SaaS/Cloud Applications.

PALO ALTO, CA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ComplianceOnline’s Seminar on 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance for SaaS/Cloud Applications returns to Arizona and Philadelphia in 2019. The 2018 sold-out event was attended by various healthcare and pharma professionals representing FDA regulated organizations such as Abbott Laboratories, Genentech, Novo Nordisk Inc., Sanofi Pasteur, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Vital Therapies, Inc., BioLife Solutions, and others.

The two-day training program led by well-known FDA compliance specialist David Nettleton, will explore proven techniques for reducing costs associated with implementing, using, and maintaining computer systems in regulated environments.

Lack of proper system validation is one of the major reasons for Warning Letters and 483s in most of the FDA regulated industries. This two day seminar will help participants understand the specific requirements associated with local and SaaS/cloud hosting solutions.

Retired Judge and Author Susan P. Baker to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

GALVESTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Susan P. Baker, a retired Texas judge, is the award-winning author of eight novels and two nonfiction books, all related to the law.

Baker is the author of My First Murder, The Sweet Scent of Murder, Death of a Prince, Suggestion of Death, Ledbetter Street, UNAWARE, Texas Style Justice. Her most recent book, Murder and Madness, was published last year.

“I always liked to read mysteries when I was little,” says Baker. “I guess because my father did criminal defense work. It's just fascinating to me.”

Baker was the first woman to run for judge in Galveston County and the first to be elected. As a judge, Baker dealt with a wide range of cases in family court including juvenile murder.

“There are a lot of problems in society with families and kids,” says Baker. “I wanted to make some changes in the way things were done and try to help people.”

Baker’s father was also a judge, and though she would follow in his footsteps, Baker says deep down she always wanted to be a writer.

“My goal was to someday be able to write full time,” recalls Baker, “but I had so much stuff I was doing, projects I was starting. When you get elected to office, you not only have your full-time job, but you also have to go out and meet people and speak. Since I was the first woman to get elected, I was very much in demand for service clubs like Rotary clubs, women’s organizations, and youth groups. I was also married with kids. My focus then was the bench, but I just have this desire to write. I can't explain it.”

Baker’s first book My First Murder was actually published while she was practicing law. Published by St. Martin's Press, Baker used the book as a political tool during her first campaign in 1989, donating copies on the campaign trail.

But Baker really started focusing on getting published again after she left the bench. She found a small press in Texas that published her two nonfiction books (Murdered Judges of the 20th Century and Heart of Divorce, Advice from a Judge) and got to work.

“You don't think about the whole book,” says Baker. “You write it page by page or chapter by chapter. You pull your characters from real life. If they're tall, you make them short. If they're fat, you make them thin. If they're ugly, you make them pretty. If they're stupid you make them smart. It ends up being a totally different person.”

And with murder mystery novels Baker doesn’t just get to be the judge; she’s the jury and the executioner.

“What's fun is killing people,” laughs Baker. “If you have an enemy and you write mysteries, you can kill them in the book. I’m not the only mystery writer who does that.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Susan P. Baker in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on April 2nd at 12pm EST and with Doug Llewelyn on April 9th at 12pm EST.
