The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned doctors Tuesday to use caution when prescribing drugs for chronic pain and to carefully monitor patients using the medications, as part of an effort to reduce addiction and overdoses.

The USA is in the grips of an epidemic of prescription painkiller abuse, with 40 Americans a day dying from overdoses, according to the CDC. In 2013, an estimated 1.9 million people abused or were dependent on prescription opiates, drugs in the same class as morphine.

Nearly all of the prescription opiates on the market are as powerful as heroin, said CDC director Thomas Frieden. Yet prescription opiates often do a very poor job in controlling chronic pain. Some patients who are prescribed opiates actually experience more pain than others, Frieden said. For the vast majority of patients with chronic pain, the risks aren’t worth the benefits, he said.

American redux: Apple, Motorola, Lenovo and the pulse of stateside manufacturing

Google introduced the Nexus Q close to a year ago. It was an intriguing device with a standout design, but its high asking price and limited functionality meant it wasn’t long before the Q was pulled from virtual shelves. A peculiar product and, perhaps, a cautionary tale, but the sphere was also interesting for another reason: it was manufactured in the USA. That credential is a rarity, and in the consumer technology business, almost an anomaly. It’s fast becoming a lot more common, however, with some big players setting up a stateside manufacturing presence. Awareness of the potential advantages of doing so can only increase, and serve to debunk the myth that future technology can’t be built on American soil.

After flirting with the idea, then committing to build a computer in the US, Apple chose its redesigned Mac Pro for assembly in the states. Lenovo has a PC production facility up and running in North Carolina, and Google-owned Motorola will be putting together its next flagship, the Moto X, in Texas. Time will tell whether other companies will follow suit, and to what extent, but if the arguments in favor of US manufacturing hold up, we could see the trend sustained in the long term, leading to many more gadgets bearing a US birthmark.

Good things are going to happen@Mehakkhorana


Aqui trago contos e pensamentos, de personagens que passaram e passam por mim, pela minha mente. Emprestei fragmentos meus, a cada um dos mesmos... ou talvez tenha sido o contrário. Resumindo o que disse Lispector "escrever é uma maldição. Mas escrever apenas uma linha, basta para salvar a alma." E escrever é isso. Lançar em letras, o que não se pode medir, o que não se pode tocar com as mãos. Também trarei trechos de livros e crítica de artes em geral, bem como, desenhos autorais. Música Indie também fará parte do acervo.
