Teens: Prescription Drugs Easier to Get Than Beer Print E-mail
Thursday, 14 August 2008

Teenagers now say that painkillers and other prescription medications are more available to them than beer. A survey released today by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse reports that marijuana and cigarettes are still easy for teens to buy. But for the first time in the survey's thirteen-year history, young people say that drugs not prescribed to them—often OxyContin and Vicodin—are more available than a six-pack of beer.

Those drugs can impair the judgment of young people, who are already prone to recklessness. The medications increase “the risk for accidents, sexual activities, (and) more drugs,” said Ralph Lopez, clinical associate professor of pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College, in USA TODAY.

Where do teenagers get these drugs? Usually from their own home medicine cabinets.

Fly By Night Print E-mail
Monday, 11 August 2008

The Cassini spacecraft is transmitting raw images today of Saturn’s moon Enceladus (left).

Cassini was expected to fly as close as thirty miles from the surface. The spacecraft aimed its cameras at the tiny moon’s south pole. That's where jets of icy water vapor shoot hundreds of miles into space. The images are expected to be the most detailed ever seen of this area. "From this data we may learn more about how eruptions, tectonics, and seismic activity alter the moon's surface," said Paul Helfenstein, a Cassini imaging team associate at Cornell told Space Daily.

NASA's Cassini bloggers expect some of the best raw views to arrive late this afternoon.
