Over a million children under the age of six are currently on psychiatric drugs in America

Over a million children under the age of six are currently on psychiatric drugs in America

Hundreds of people reported wishing to stop antidepressants as they had been prescribed as a short-term solution. Long-term addiction was not part of the plan.

People need to know the truth about these dangerous drugs and demand true express and informed consent in which all potential side effects are disclosed and alternative solutions offered.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2018 / — Over 8,800 people responded to the New York Times in a follow-up to its April 8th article on antidepressant addiction. The article exposed the severe difficulties people have had in coming off anti-depressants, since the widespread introduction of these drugs in America. [1]

The original article, “Most People Taking Antidepressants Discover They Cannot Quit”, pointed out that while these drugs were originally researched and marketed for short-term periodic use, today 15.5 million Americans have been taking them for 5 years or more.

By the mid-1990’s, however, pharmaceutical companies convinced the government of the desirability of open-ended continuation of these drugs. “Marketers and some researchers implied that antidepressants corrected deficits in brain levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter. In truth six decades of research into the chemical imbalance theory of depression and anxiety has not achieved scientific credibility. [2]

A further boost to the proliferation of psychiatric medications, noted in the Times article, was the government’s 1997 decision to allow drug makers to advertise directly to consumers. By promoting a rosy picture of medicated states to the general public on a daily basis, manufacturers were able to greatly expand the market for mind-altering prescription drugs. “Everyone knew someone taking them. Long-term prescription rates surged,” the article, states.

Those wishing to withdraw from such medications usually cite to unwanted side effects as the reason they want to stop, such as sexual dysfunction and weight gain. Kate Slattery of Orlando, Florida wanted to stop Efflexor due to pregnancy. “When I stopped cold turkey, I felt extremely unwell and had to go back on and wean off slowly…prevented the dizziness, headache and fogginess I felt when I originally stopped the medication.”

As a further extension of the problem, in 2000 doctors started prescribing antidepressants to children. Today, recent estimates from the National Center for Health Statistics estimate that 7.5 percent of children between the ages of 6 and 17 are on psychiatric medications. [3]

These developments have prompted new concerns. The Mayo Clinic now publishes a guidebook helping parents “learn why antidepressants have warnings about suicidal thinking in children and teens, what to do before your child starts taking an antidepressant, and the warning signs of a potential problem.” [4]

The Times article also quotes Emma Dreyfus of Boston, saying that being put on Paxil at age 10 for anxiety was the “one mistake her parents had made”. Only at 23 was she able to slowly get off the drug. “I don’t blame them, but I wish we’d all understood the long-term effects.”

Even more disturbing is the report from a study released in 2016. This study reviewed and analyzed 70 antidepressant clinical trials with patient narratives for more than 18,000 participants, concluded that antidepressants doubled the risk of aggression and suicide in children and teens. [5]

“People need to know the truth about these dangerous drugs and demand true express and informed consent in which all potential side effects are disclosed and alternative solutions offered when a psychiatric drug is recommended as treatment for any condition,” said Diane Stein, President of the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR).

Social Media Scams Targeting East Bay Youth

Social Media Scams Targeting East Bay Youth
1st United Credit Union warns residents to use caution

Social Media Scams Targeting East Bay Youth
1st United Credit Union warns residents to use caution

PLEASANTON, CA (June 14, 2018): 1st United Credit Union has witnessed ongoing financial fraud in which criminals are targeting teens through social media. As a part of an ongoing effort to help their members and community protect their information and accounts, 1st United is warning residents of this issue.

“Social media is becoming a staple in kids’ lives,” said Greg Pulliam, 1st United Credit Union’s Chief Administrative Officer. “Although kids are tech savvy, they may not have the common sense to spot scams.”

At the core of the scam, kids are contacted through Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat and are offered money to hand over personal information such as a social security number or bank account information. In one case, a 16 year old was paid $500 to send a copy of his Social Security Card to a criminal who attempted to impersonate the victim at the Credit Union. If the account activity is fraudulent, the victim is left owing the money to the financial institution and is held responsible for the fraud.

Fraudsters are reaching out to kids in varying ways including phony contests and giveaways, make-money-quick schemes, and by impersonating a celebrity or a person in need of help, often living abroad.

“1st United wants parents to be aware of this threat and talk with their kids about it,” says Greg. “Unfortunately, if a child gives their personal and/or banking information accidentally or purposefully to someone who uses that information to commit a fraudulent act, the family could be held responsible.”

1st United Credit Union urges parents to take precautions, including:

• Remind children to never give out personal information. This includes account number, passwords, and any online or mobile banking login information. It could also include the name of their favorite book, pet’s names, or mother’s maiden name – all information used for security authentication on accounts.
• Remind children that if they are offered money in exchange for your personal information, it’s likely a scam. Don’t proceed. Scammers could leave you owing thousands and these unpaid balances will be sent to a collections agency.
• Check social profile settings. Strangers should not be able to see your child’s profile.
• Uninstall apps that access your child’s personal information on their phones.
• Be wary of celebrity profiles. Many are not legitimate.

If consumers believe they are a victim of fraud, they are requested to contact their local police department immediately and notify their financial institution so additional safeguards can be placed on their account.

About 1st United Credit Union
It doesn’t get simpler, faster and friendlier than 1st United Credit Union. As one of the first credit unions in California, 1st United Credit Union was founded in 1932 and has been thriving in the San Francisco East Bay Area ever since. Membership is available to anyone who lives, works, or attends school in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Joaquin, Solano, Stanislaus, or Kings Counties in California. We believe in local, neighborly banking and hope you will too. For more information, visit

Photographer Captures Legacy of United States During Artist Residency at Gettysburg Battlefield

Evening Gettysburg Photo by NPAF Resident James Schlett

Sunset Memorial by NPAF Resident James Schlett

I plan to capture the aspects of the “cross-roads” and how the spokes all centered into Gettysburg that made this location a critical one as the site of the three days of battle.”

— James Schlett, NPAF Artist in Residence

GETTYSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA, US, August 15, 2018 / — Nationally acclaimed photographer James Schlett has been selected as the Gettysburg National Military Park Artist in Residence, for August-September. Schlett is a photographer whose visual creativity captures the reflection of history in contemporary context with brutal grace, through photography. His residency will take place Aug 15th, 2018 to Sep 12th, 2018, culminating in a FREE TO THE PUBLIC EVENT at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, on September 8th, 10am-1pm.

“I plan to capture the aspects of the “cross-roads” and how the spokes all centered into Gettysburg that made this location a critical one as the site of the three days of battle.” said Schlett, of his plans for the residency.

After over 30 years working for the U.S. government, Mr. Schlett discovered his newfound, urgent passion for photography. His photographs have been published in a number of high profile venues such as the Washington Post, Reston Magazine, Fairfax Times, and he has been exhibited in galleries and art shows, and won numerous competitive awards. Of note is that one of his images was displayed in the “Art Takes Times Square” Exhibition in New York City in June 2012.

During his tenure as Artist-in-Residence, Schlett will totally immerse himself in the experience on a 24/7 basis for several weeks. He often uses the first few and last few hours of sunlight to capture the most delicate moments of light, which often provides the best final images. He employees digital imaging to enhance his work with various software packages, in the same way “darkrooms” were used historically.

About the residency, Schlett is fairly vocal in his enthusiasm: “I don't believe there are any other artistic opportunities that compare to this unique program. I welcome this chance to share my images and knowledge with the the park visitors and staff.”

This Artist-in-Residency program is made possible by a joint effort of the Gettysburg Foundation and non-profit The National Park Arts Foundation, with support from the National Park Service. Through a legacy of artists, the program aims to connect visitors and the Gettysburg community to the park in a novel and compelling way, to inspire the preservation of our shared cultural heritage and the immortalizing these great touchstones in American history.

“Gettysburg National Military Park has offered inspiration to artists for more than 150 years,” said Christopher Gwinn, Chief of Interpretation at Gettysburg National Military Park. “The Artist-in-Residence program engages new audiences and tells Gettysburg’s stories in new and compelling ways.”

New Artwork Arrivals From Abstract Art Master 08/18




Virtosu Art Gallery new arrivals from abstract art master Gheorghe Virtosu. 7 masterpieces.

A work of art is a world in itself reflecting the senses and emotions of the artist’s world”

— Hans Hofmann

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2018 / —

It has to be said that this has been a tremendous month at Virtosu Art Gallery. The arrival of some fabulous new oil paintings from abstract art master Gheorghe Virtosu, seven stunning new oil paintings. The artworks are part of artist 2016 portfolio and will be on display at our gallery under Collection 2016.

The titles of the oil paintings are as follows:

Theodore Roosevelt, The new and old world order, Cowboy of the universe, Putin, Da Vinci, Alexander the Great, Prince Charles in waiting

Having a biography full of dramatic and difficult situations, contemporary artist Gheorghe Virtosu doesn’t try to reject and forget it – he courageously faces his inner challenges and sublimates the life experience into aesthetic form. The artist conveys the sense of drama and action through the complex and vibrant textures. The canvas becomes the substance the contemporary artist uses to ‘sculpt’ the image. Gheorghe Virtosu’s pieces prove the connection between Objective and Abstract. Leonardo da Vinci noted that, if our vision can grasp landscapes and faces in the accident blots, the same way it can ‘deconstruct,’ eliminate the integrity of an object’s image. And that purified natural form becomes the basic artistic material for the painter. Nevertheless, Gheorghe Virtosu doesn’t copy the natural forms but rather follows their dynamics and movement: sudden twists of the line, compositional pauses, coloristic bursts are consonant with the natural processes of birth, growth, and decay. The artist blurs the borders between ‘narrative’ and ‘non-narrative art,’ asking us “What is the reality, if not one of the most abstract things in the world?”

The artist signed representation in 2017. Our gallery successfully placed more than 135 Virtosu’s canvases within their new homes with investors and art collectors worldwide. Since his public appearance in 2016, exposing his work to a wider audience, the artist has grown into a highlight of the abstract art realm. Valued by art lovers, investors and art galleries, the artist makes his canvases accessible and provides inspiration for young, upcoming artists. For investors and art collectors, it is the chance to buy artworks that fit their strategies.

Of course, Virtosu art pieces can be viewed here on our website and new pieces are being added all the time, so do keep checking back in.

Pamela Jo Roller to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LOGANSPORT, INDIANA, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2018 / — There’s a popular saying that not all heroes wear capes and it couldn’t be truer than for Pamela Jo Roller. Pamela’s life has been a series of courageous moves—from making a difference for struggling students, to overcoming her vision problems, to volunteer efforts, to taking care of a mother who faced all types of adversity herself. Pamela not only triumphed in each of these, she earned awards for her accomplishments, and wrote a book about Clara Evelyn Sizemore’s life, to honor her mom and be an inspiration for other women.

Pamela’s mother, who goes by Evelyn, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in February of 2008. Pamela stood by her mom as she faced the physical and emotional ordeals of cancer treatment and began writing while mom was getting her hours of Chemo. It was not only a way to pay tribute to a mother whose time might be running out, it was therapeutic for Pamela; writing gave her focus and kept her calm during the endless hours of waiting.

Evelyn’s story, entitled My Mother’s Graceful Inspiration is no best seller, but it accomplished Pamela’s goal of paying tribute to a mother who faced adversity– at every age and in every form– and still held her head high. She never raged at God either. Instead, Evelyn kept moving ahead, and is still around today at age 84. Evelyn became pregnant at aged 16 and again at 17, both children born dead. Pamela was the first of her 5 kids to survive. Evelyn raised them as a single mom, working at a factory (back when maternity leave didn’t exist), all the while pursuing her GED and then cake decorator certification. Evelyn’s graces included making stunning special occasion cakes, and catering weddings and anniversaries. She made lovely quilts for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and Evelyn frequently donated quilts to Riley Children’s Hospital. Evelyn also raised bright and successful children, especially Pamela, who became a teacher and earned several honors throughout her career.

Pamela recently retired after more than 40 years in teaching. She loved finding a way to engage her students, especially when it came to science, and had a mock space shuttle simulator in her classroom. It not only helped reach her elementary school students, Pamela made it available to other classes, grades, and schools. Pamela was a Disney Honoree for American Teacher Awards in 2002-03. In 2005, she was asked to contribute to the series of Best Practices educational books by Randy Stone. Pamela’s articles appeared in Best Classroom Practices for Reaching all Learners, as well as the Reading, Math, Writing and Science volumes in that series.

Pamela is sweet and humble about such honors, including when she received the Pharos Tribune Good Neighbor Award. She knows she did volunteer work for the Red Cross, delivering flowers and wheeling out released patients, and that community members also admired a mentoring program she had launched, matching at-risk-children with adult role models. Sometimes the difference between a poor student and a student who excels is just having someone in their corner, to listen and build up their confidence, says Pamela.

Pamela is never sure who nominates her for these distinctions and thinks maybe it is all just a divine hand at work. She is, after all, a devout Christian. Pamela mentions God as a major influence in her life and the source of strength that helped her just keep putting one foot in front of the other during her most difficult days.

CUTV News Radio will feature Pamela Jo Roller in interviews on August 17 at 2:00pm EDT with Doug Llewelyn, and on August 24th at 2:00pm EDT with Jim Masters.

Unfortunately, little is known about diagnosis and treatment of ASD, and even the access to available therapy is limited for the majority. Although evidence states that early intervention treatment services can help with social skills development for children. To this end, Floreo is leveraging the potential of VR technology in facilitating multimodal adaptive social interaction integrating repeatable and supervised learning environments, automated performance data collection , and accessible, affordable therapeutic treatment. Floreo uses customized VR lessons to build real world skills that incorporate using/shifting eye gaze, cognitive development with the help of imitation and use of gestures, interaction in school environments, as well as various safety situations. Vijay Ravindran, Co-Founder & CEO of Floreo, talks about the pros of using VR for ASD saying:

“Virtual really allows the creation of immersive teaching environment that occur in 3D space, allow for repeatable practice, and can be designed to meet the learner where they are in complexity. We’re excited to partner with Dr. Farid and VRXOne to bring Floreo’s ground-breaking science-backed curriculum to the Middle East.”

The on-going research has already proved the effectiveness and usefulness of VR-based design system and places high hopes in the power of this technology to help bridge the gap between society and people affected with ASD by helping to considerably improve their social interaction.
