“With everything that’s going on we want people to know that they are still blessed to have life and family and friends that love them. Our job is to continue to make music that inspires and provides an escape from this difficult time that everyone is experiencing. We will overcome this moment together,” says Nieman Johnson.

California Poison Control Observes National Poison Prevention Week March 15 – 21

California Poison Control System (CPCS), the largest single provider of poison control services in the United States, is observing National Poison Prevention Week March 15 – 21, 2020. This year’s campaign – “Six Million Calls – Lives Saved – Tragedies Averted” focuses on the six million calls California CPCS has received since its inception helping to save lives, reduce ER visits and educate residents.

This year, CPCS is launching a new testimonial video with actual mothers who called the 800 number when they thought their children were possibly poisoned. The video includes an interview with Dr. Cyrus Rangan, assistant medical director, Los Angeles. In the video, Dr. Rangan also describes services offered to the public, including confidential response 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in more than 200 languages. Access the video link here https://bit.ly/3aQBHgM.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, every 13 seconds, a poison control center in the United States answers a call about a possible poisoning. Poisonings are a significant health problem in California, resulting in 226,000 calls to the California Poison Control System each year averting more than 61,000 visits to emergency rooms and doctors’ offices. While poisoning exposures can happen to anyone anywhere, about 80 percent of all calls are made from the home and nearly half of these calls involve children under the age of five. The most common causes of poisoning among young children are cosmetics and personal care products. (Note: Hand sanitizer is everywhere because of the coronavirus, and that has led to a spike in calls to poison control from parents whose children have ingested it.)

CPCS manages poisoning cases or questions related to medications, chemicals, drugs, work-related hazards and environmental injuries, as well as snakes and spiders bites and poisonous plants.

“It’s critical that information about how to prevent poisoning becomes more widely known and disseminated,” said Stuart E. Heard, Pharm.D, Executive Director, CPCS. “That’s why during National Poison Prevention Week, CPCS would like to remind everyone about the free preventive and life-saving services we offer.”

The CPCS toll-free number, 1-800-222-1222, is answered by pharmacists, nurses, and poison information providers. The number is available to all areas of California and callers receive expert treatment advice and referral in case of exposure to poisonous or toxic substances free-of-charge, 24/7.
The Poison Safety Education Course is an interactive learning tool designed to educate the public about poisons, prevention and who to call for help. Take the course at www.calpoison.org (also available in Spanish).
Choose Your Poison is a free online game (free iPhone and Android app also available) that can be played with the whole family! Can you tell the difference between pills and candy?
Sign up for weekly CPCS poison safety text tips (Text TIPS to 20121 for English. PUNTOS for Spanish).
CPCS provides news, tips and poison prevention on their Facebook and Twitter pages. Connect with us to learn more!

The Pesticide Safety Project was developed to give communities and promotores ways to help farm workers learn how to protect themselves from poison and pesticide exposure.

Suggested tweet: Save our free #CPCS 1-800-222-1222 number into your phones and get family and friends to do the same.

About California Poison Control

In case of an accidental poisoning, consumers should immediately call 1-800-222-1222 (this number works in all states) for advice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. CPCS also conducts public health surveillance and acts as a community sentinel notifying local and state agencies, the media, and the public of potential health threats. The CPCS has four divisions located at UC Davis Medical Center; Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital; Valley Children’s Hospital; and UC San Diego Medical Center. The CPCS is part of the University of California San Francisco School of Pharmacy and responsible to the California Emergency Medical Services Authority.

Tahoe-Reno x Scenic Train

Green up Your Tahoe-Reno Trip with A Scenic Train and Some Local Color

If you are planning a Tahoe-Reno this spring or summer, do yourself a favor and take a bit of stress out of your trip with an added stop en route, or even a chance to get out of the car and see one of America’s most scenic train routes.

Colfax, a historic town along Highway 80, about an hour east of Sacramento, is a great place to get off the highway, board a train or sleepover to enjoy the places in between.

Leave Early and Stay-over En Route

Heres a tip: consider a Friday departure and layover an hour or so from a favorite destination. Wake up fresh and rested, with daylight to help guide you to your destination safely.

Colfax and Dutch Flat offer some interesting choices for enjoy some Sierra local color and hitting the road well-rested for an early start or even, trying a holiday without the car-board Amtrak mid-day for Reno or Truckee and use ski shuttles or public transportation. The message here is simple: maximize outdoor time, minimize traffic hassle.

Colfax, named for 1800’s politician, Schuyler Colfax, is right next to Highway 80 with a motor lodge, bed and breakfast, Air BNB farmhouse and a Best Western Hotel beginning construction. It’s not hard to envision getting an early start from this quiet foothill town and enjoying a more relaxed pace.

Just a few miles up the Interstate from Colfax, Dutch Flat also offers a historic family/friendly hotel with multiple bed suites and discounts for return visits and groups. From the one-block long Dutch Flat town center, find your way to the Monte Vista Inn, a mile or so up the road…this is where the locals go for homemade food in an authentic log cabin. (Trivia: Governor Newsom’s son Dutch is named for Dutch Flat.)

Dump The Car!

One more suggestion: Take the train from Colfax and dump the car just as traffic congestion starts. Ever notice how wonderful Tahoe is EXCEPT for the traffic?

Take the time to see the Sierra from a totally different vantage point in the mountains on a train. With daily mid-day departures, this is the slow way to get there, but provides not only a glimpse into spectacular beauty, but history. This was one of the most challenging sections of the Transcontinental Railroad construction and still inspires awe.

With stops in Truckee and Reno, there are plenty of on the ground transportation options. In particular, Tahoe Area Regional Transit (TART) in Truckee has frequent buses from Truckee to favored resorts and restaurants, like Northstar, Squaw and Tahoe City. Ride TART for free as part of a two-year trial public transportation program. As bonus, TART even offers night service from Tahoe City to Truckee until 1:30 am-well after the taverns close down.

While very scenic, train schedules are subject to delays. Plan accordingly. Colfax has free overnight parking and puts a traveler on the train just as the climb through the mountains begins. This trip has a reputation for providing seasonal beauty from snow, to wildflowers to grand summer and fall vistas.

Shango x Moreno Valley

Shango Is the City’s First Licensed Retail Cannabis Facility

The dreams of two Southern Californians will come true when the new Shango Moreno Valley recreational cannabis dispensary opens on March 5, 2020.

Shango founder and CEO Brandon Rexroad, and former NFL All-Pro offensive lineman Kyle Turley are the ownership group that is bringing the Shango brand to California.

Rexroad, a longtime resident of Orange County, is a close friend of Turley who grew up in Moreno Valley.

“Opening a dispensary in Southern California has been a personal goal of mine since I started in the cannabis industry nearly 24 years ago,” Rexroad said. “We’re excited to be the first licensed dispensary in Moreno Valley and we’re planning on making a positive impact on this community.

“Shango Moreno Valley has an exceptional location,” Rexroad said. “Shango will offer the best cannabis shopping experience in the Inland Empire. Our customers are going to be amazed.”

The official Grand Opening celebration for the public will take place on March 13, 2020 at 10 a.m. with a Moreno Valley Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting ceremony, featuring local government and business leaders and media. Representatives of Shango’s ownership group and management will be available for Interviews before and during the event.

The first 50 people in line for the Grand Opening will receive complimentary Shango merchandise and deep discounts on cannabis products and accessories. Other special offers and raffles will be available to all customers throughout the Grand Opening weekend.

The dispensary is located at 11875 Pigeon Pass, Unit C1 in Moreno Valley, in the Stater Bros shopping center at the corner of Pigeon Pass and Ironwood, near California Highway 60. Hours of operation are from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

Shango holds a total of 29 cannabis licenses in state markets across the country, including 10 for dispensaries in Oregon, Nevada, Michigan, California and Missouri. Moreno Valley is the first of several planned Shango dispensaries in California. The company will also be opening its first distribution facility in California in summer of 2020.

For Turley, being part of a business in his hometown, where he was a multi-sport athlete at Moreno Valley High School, is a highlight in his post-NFL career.

“I’m so proud to be bringing a game-changing business to my hometown,” Turley said. “It’s pretty exciting and it kind of feels like I was destined for this.”

As a high school and college athlete, Turley never used cannabis until he sustained painful injuries and numerous concussions while playing in the NFL.

“I had friends who lost their college scholarships because they tested positive for marijuana, but I never needed it,” Turley recalls. “It’s ironic that now I’m a huge cannabis advocate and living proof that it can change your life and even save your life. This plant is shifting the conversation from being on drugs to getting off drugs. This is supposed to happen.”

Rexroad and Turley are the ownership group operating as SMV GROUP INC. The Moreno Valley facility contains 5,000 square feet of retail space.

The Shango Moreno Valley phone number is (866) 4SH-ANGO, (474-2646). The email address is socal.info@goshango.com.

Shango Moreno Valley is a member of the Moreno Valley Chamber of Commerce.

More About Kyle Turley
Turley played nine seasons in the NFL, selected 7th overall in the 1998 draft. He played five seasons for the New Orleans Saints and a year with the St. Louis Rams before a serious back injury sidelined him for the 2004 and 2005 seasons. He returned in 2006 as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, where he spent the last two years of his career before retiring in 2007. He was All-Pro offensive tackle in 2000 and was invited to the Pro Bowl in 2001.

He has been involved in a number of player health issues post-retirement, particularly neurological problems resulting from his football career. He also is a board member of the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund.

Turley was featured in CNN’s “Weed 4: Pot vs Pills” hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, which focused on medical marijuana and CBD. He endorsed the use of cannabis and hemp products as a way to escape the addiction to opioids.

Diagnosed with Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) as a result of more than 100 concussions he received during his 10-years NFL career. Turley struggled with an addiction to painkillers, violent thoughts and suicidal tendencies until he started using medical marijuana.

“It saved my life,” he says. “I wouldn’t be where I am today, I would not have my family, my kids, my house, everything I have right now, if not for cannabis.”

To help save other lives, Turley founded the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition to use his story and those of other players to advance the use of marijuana as a valid medical treatment for neurological conditions and other athletic injuries.

“This plant has to be set free,” he says. “We have people committing suicide in football and other sports. How far do we have to go? Cannabis has played an important role in allowing me to personally manage pain, cope with CTE, improve my overall health and eliminate the need for prescription opioids that nearly cost me my life. If we can allow players and veterans to recover naturally with proper dietary and organic therapies, we should be doing so.”

Becky Hill x U.S. Live Debut

U.K. ARTIST BECKY HILL MAKES HER U.S. LIVE DEBUT WITH AN ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE AT NYC’S MERCURY LOUNGE ON APRIL 9

LYRIC VIDEO FOR “BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU” Ft. SHIFT K3Y OUT NOW – VIEW HERE

HILL HAS AMASSED OVER ONE BILLION STREAMS AND CHARTED SEVEN TOP 40 HITS IN UK

Chart-topping U.K. artist Becky Hill will make her U.S. live debut with an intimate, acoustic performance at Mercury Lounge in New York City on Thursday, April 9. BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac has called her “one of the finest voices in pop music today.” With over a billion streams and 20 million Spotify monthly listeners, Hill is now the 2nd most listened to British female artist on Spotify in the U.K. Tickets for this special performance are available HERE.

“IM PLAYING MY FIRST AMERICAN SHOW!! NEW YORK!!” says Hill. “UR in for a treat at the Mercury Lounge as I’ll be playing an intimate, acoustic show on the 9th of April in my 2nd favourite city!”

Renowned for her show-stopping vocal prowess and credentials as a hitmaking songwriter, the 25-year-old artist is one of Britain’s most in-demand musical exports. Popjustice declared her “UK pop’s greatest secret weapon.” To date, Hill has written and performed on seven singles that charted in the top 40 of the UK Official Singles chart yet her roots are firmly ensconced in electronic music. Her songwriting skills have been enlisted by such artists as Tiësto, Jax Jones, Martin Solveig and Little Mix.

“Better Off Without You” is Hill’s first release since 2019’s Get To Know, which Billboard hailed as “electrifying…a must-hear.” A hugely personal body of work that explores the varying stages of love and loss, Get To Know simultaneously serves as an introduction to Hill and a veritable greatest hits collection. It contains the million-selling “Gecko (Overdrive)” with Oliver Heldens, which took the No. 1 spot on the UK Official Singles chart, the UK Top 10 singles “Wish You Well” with Sigala, which has amassed over 100 million streams, and “Afterglow” with Wilkinson, plus the club anthem “Back & Forth” with MK and Jonas Blue.

Snapdragon and Rubyfrost Apples X San Diego Zoo

SNAPDRAGON AND RUBYFROST APPLES FROM NEW YORK

San Diego Zoo to ‘Exhibit’ the Indigenous, New York SnapDragon

The hottest apple from New York with the Monster Crunch to be given out at pop-up sampling event at the world-famous San Diego Zoo.

On Saturday, February 22nd, Crunch Time Apple Growers will be giving out SnapDragon apples at the San Diego Zoo during a pop-up sampling event that’s happening right on Front Street — the main thoroughfare into the Zoo.

Last year on that date, the Zoo had 15,500 attendees walk down Front Street — which is why Crunch Time chose this high-traffic location for its pop-up sampling event.

“The San Diego Zoo is a national destination for families. And Front Street gets a ton of foot traffic, which makes it the ideal place to give out this incredible apple to potentially thousands of people,” says Rena Montedoro, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Crunch Time. “The name of the apple is also an ideal tie-in with SnapDragon’s ‘Monster Crunch’ tagline…even the word ‘Dragon’ makes it seem like a unique zoo exhibit featuring an exotic creature. It just all fits together.”

In addition to putting on the pop-up sampling event, Crunch Time will be co-sponsoring an online sweepstakes where consumers can win 4 tickets to the San Diego Zoo and their ‘Animals in Action’ tour, with tour tickets provided by the San Diego Zoo. Crunch Time will cover the hotel expenses for the 4 winners — along with providing them with a box of SnapDragon apples, apparel, and up to $1000 in airfare.

“Even though people come to the Zoo from all over the country, sampling this apple in a key, West Coast location enables us to shine the spotlight on one of Northeast’s and New York’s hottest apples — specifically a variety with such a unique flavor profile like SnapDragon,” adds Montedoro.

Bite a Crunch Time Apple. Support a Farmer!
When you bite into a Crunch Time apple, you’re not just tasting an incredible apple, but the incredible love and labor of 147 family farmers across New York State. Every Crunch Time apple is non-GMO, super crunchy, delightfully juicy, beautifully colored and carefully grown. Plus, when you purchase a Crunch Time apple, you’re not only biting into a little history, you’re helping to sustain the future of family farming for generations to come.
