NBC News 26 August 2019Family First Comment: “Marijuana concentrate can come in multiple forms, including oils and butter-like compounds, and can contain very high levels of THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis. It’s often ingested using a vaping device and doesn’t smell like traditional pot. In the study, published Monday in the journal Pediatrics, researchers surveyed almost 50,000 adolescents in Arizona. The researchers found that among teens who used any form of cannabis, 72% had experience with the more potent products.”Teens who used a concentrated form of marijuana — sometimes called dabs, wax, shatter or crumble — are more likely to also use other drugs than kids who avoid marijuana, a new study suggests.Marijuana concentrate can come in multiple forms, including oils and butter-like compounds, and can contain very high levels of THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis. It’s often ingested using a vaping device and doesn’t smell like traditional pot.In the study, published Monday in the journal Pediatrics, researchers surveyed almost 50,000 adolescents in Arizona. The researchers found that among teens who used any form of cannabis, 72 percent had experience with the more potent products.Those findings should serve as an alert to parents who may not even know their kids are vaping, said the study’s lead author, Madeline Meier, an assistant professor of psychology at Arizona State University.“I don’t know that parents know about this stuff,” Meier said. “If I weren’t a marijuana researcher, I don’t know if I saw [a vape with marijuana] that I would know what it was. Parents should educate themselves about what these forms of cannabis look like.”To get a better sense of teen drug use, Meier and her colleagues surveyed 47,142 students in eighth, 10th and 12th grades from 245 schools across Arizona in 2018. The students were asked whether they’d ever used marijuana or marijuana concentrate, as well as whether they had used either in the past month. They were also asked about other drug use, peer substance use and whether they thought cannabis was safe.READ MORE: https://www.nbcnews.com/health/kids-health/teens-who-use-concentrated-marijuana-more-likely-use-other-drugs-n1045961Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Mohamed Salah has once again gone the extra mile to put a smile on a fan’s face with the gift of a signed boot to a young supporter injured in a bomb attack. Eight-year-old Hamis al Gacir lost a leg as the result of bombing for the Assad Regime Forces in Idlib, Syria. Fitted with a prosthetic leg, the youngster escaped to the nearby Turkish province of Hatay. This week, Hamis received a thoughtful gift from Liverpool winger Salah in a heartfelt show of support during such a difficult time. The Egyptian ace sent over a signed boot attached to a framed poster featuring illustrations of the footballer. Crampons also came with the boot to help the youngster attach it to his prosthetic leg and kick a ball with his hero’s boot. Hamis gaves a thumbs-up while posing for photos with the gift while donning full Liverpool kit. This is not the first time Salah has lent a helping hand to those in need. The 27-year-old has donated significant funds to build a hospital and school in his hometown of Nagrig. In March of 2018, he handed over £500,000 for medical equipment to treat child cancer at Cairo’s 57357 Hospital.

A woman casts her vote during presidential runoff election in Krakow, Poland, Sunday, July 12, 2020. AP PHOTO/PETR DAVID JOSE WARSAW – Voting started Sunday in Poland’s razor-blade-close presidential election runoff between the conservative incumbent, President Andrzej Duda, and liberal, pro-European Union Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski. Duda is backed by the ruling right-wing party and the government, as he seeks a second 5-year term. Trzaskowski, a former European Parliament lawmaker, runs for the main opposition Civic Platform party that was in power in from 2007 to 2015. Both candidates are 48. Latest polls showed that the race may be decided by a very small margin. Amid calls from both sides to some 30 million eligible voters to cast ballots, turnout is expected to be higher than the 64.51% in the first round on June 28. (AP)

Mildred C. Brackman, age 92 of Batesville, died Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at her home. Born April 27, 1925 in Franklin County Indiana, she is the daughter of Clara (Nee: Enneking) and Leo Kleine. She married Harry Brackman May 4, 1946 at Holy Family Church in Oldenburg and he preceded her in death November 15, 2001.An accomplished seamstress, Mildred was self taught and could sew, quilt, needlepoint and cross stitch. She made her children’s clothing growing up and in later years made doll clothes, baby blankets, Christmas tree skirts and stockings for the grandchildren. She dearly loved her grandchildren and making things for them. An excellent cook and baker, her family will miss her pies, donuts and homemade noodles. Mildred also had a green thumb and enjoyed working in her flower beds and in the garden. The kids teased that all she had to do was look at something and it would grow. Other interests included tending to her hummingbirds and reading. She kept several hummingbird feeders around the yard and delighted in watching them. An avid reader, she was a regular visitor to the library until just recently. Her family described her as selfless and nurturing, always wanting to help and do for others.Mildred is survived by her daughters Edna Thompson of Houston, Texas, Helen Gillman of Brookville; son Urban Brackman of Batesville; seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren with another one on the way. In addition to her husband and parents, she is also preceded in death by her son Martin (Slim) Brackman; sister Caroline Duerstock and brothers Elmer and Martin Kleine.Visitation is Monday, October 30th, from 9 – 11 a.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home.

Justin Kay raised the IMCA modern era bar by winning his career fourth national Late Model crown. At left is Clay Smith of Speedway Motors and at right is IMCA President Brett Root. (Photo by Bruce Badgley, Motorsports Photography)WHEATLAND, Iowa – A driver who has an appreciation for racing history and all the numbers that go into the sport made IMCA Late Model history this season.Justin Kay became the first four-time national champion in the modern era of the division, winning 16 features and finishing in the top five in 30 of his 33 starts.He was also one of just two IMCA drivers winning track championships in different divisions, topping both Late Model and Modified point standings at Farley Speedway.“Winning the national championship is always in the back of your mind at the start of the year. Deery Brothers races counted toward national points this year and we had early success in the series,” said Kay, from Wheatland, Iowa. “In May, we decided to keep racing at Farley and see how things played out.”A five-time winner on the Late Model tour circuit and in weekly shows at Farley, Kay also collected three checkers at Dubuque Speedway and single wins at Davenport Speedway and Maquoketa Speedway.His sole out-of-state victory came on opening night of the One Night Stand at LaSalle, Ill., Speedway.“The big thing for us continued to be maintenance on the car and that is a tribute to my crew,” Kay said. “We just don’t have the failures that prevent us from finishing races. I think the worst thing that happened this year was a broken oil pump and that was on a night when we still managed to finish fourth.”Kay wrote his own chapter in the IMCA history book on June 13 at West Liberty Raceway, when he became the first driver to win Deery Brothers Summer Series and Arnold Motor Supply Hawkeye Dirt Tour Modified events on the same night.“It’s always pretty neat to be able to do something that no one else has done,” noted Kay, “and it’s neat to have had the opportunity to do it. We weren’t sure at the start of the year how often we would race the Modified.”His numbers in the open wheeled class show success similar to the Late Model: Eleven wins and 16 total top five finishes in 22 starts.“There are a lot of things I like about racing both divisions, Kay said. “Usually I’m out there in the Modified before the Late Model so I get a feel for what the track is like, which gives me a bit of an advantage. More laps is always better.”Two of his biggest wins of the season came Sept 22 and 23. Kay earned $5,000 for both his Friday night’s Modified Governor’s Cup win and the Saturday win in the Liberty 100 Deery finale at West Liberty.“The Liberty 100 always seems to be one of my season highlights. It’s 100 laps and I always seem to do well in long races,” he said. “We had to restart at the back (on the 26th lap) and were able to keep going and get the lead at the end.”Kay was fourth and scored a $10,750 payday at Batesville Motor Speedway’s inaugural Race For Hope 74 the following weekend.“That race was a blast. Promoter Mooney Starr and (race sponsor) Mark Martin are neat to be around,” he said. “I love the track. They did so many little things to make it a neat weekend. I can’t wait to go back next year.”Kay had also won national Late Model titles from 2013-2015 and shared the previous career mark with Darrel DeFrance, Ray Guss Jr. and Rob Toland.He now has 81 career wins in the division, ninth on the divisional list since 1987 and tied for 13th with Dick Hutcherson on the all-time list.Starts-33 Wins-16 Additional Top Fives-14HIS CREW: Parents and car owners Ricky and Brenda Kay, Tyson Gheer, Tyler Madigan, Scott Fitzpatrick and cousin Jason Kay.HIS SPONSORS: Kay Farms and Elevator, Wheatland Ag Center, JMR Gheer’d Up Race Cars, Petersen Insurance, Wheatland Auto Body, JR’s Place Bar & Grill and HeineeJo’s Bar & Grill, all of Wheatland; Crop Production Services and Dow Agri-Science/Abby Inglis, both of Wyoming; Hoker Trucking of Dixon; Grove Automotive of Dubuque; Doug Nigh’s RPMS of Maquoketa; Allstar Performance of Watervliet, Mich.; Performance Bodies of Cedar Falls; JRi Shocks of Mooresville, N.C.; Sweet Manufacturing of Kalamazoo, Mich.; Wilwood of Camarillo, Calif.; Eibach Springs of Corona, Calif.; Wehrs Machine of Bangor, Wis.; Chase Race Decals of Ames; Real Wheels of Independence; Callies Crankshafts of Fostoria, Ohio; DMI/Bulldog Rear Ends of Lancaster, Pa.; Dynamic Drivelines and Karl Performance, both of Des Moines; and Mycogen Seeds, Cary Gruenwald of Lost Nation.
