Lawsuit Exposes State in Taking Kids from Parents and Heavily Drugging them with Psychotropics*

Lawsuit Exposes State in Taking Kids from Parents and Heavily Drugging them with Psychotropics*

By Claire Bernish

Foster children in Missouri have been dangerously over-medicated with antipsychotic drugs — intended to treat conditions like bipolar disorder and schizophrenia — to manage behavioral disorders like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to a new civil rights lawsuit, which instead effectively puts them in “a chemical straightjacket.”

“The sedative properties of the drugs are employed to sedate and control the difficult behaviors of children,” says attorney Bill Grimm of the National Center for Youth Law, which — together with the Saint Louis University School of Law Legal Clinic and the legal advocacy group Children’s Rights — brought the lawsuit June 12.

“Whenever a state takes a child into custody, there are certain obligation that arise to that child from the state,” such as the government’s duty to protect children’s health and safety, the attorney asserts.

Missouri’s Children’s Division, “has failed to meet its critical obligations and presently subjects [foster children represented] to physical and psychological harm and the unreasonable risk of such harm in violation of their federal constitutional and statutory rights,” the class-action suit contends.

Grimm laments the issue compounding due to flimsy recordkeeping, adding, according to Reason,

“The caregivers don’t know in some instances what the medications are, what conditions they’re supposed to address for the child, what benefits they are supposed to provide to the child … They are operating in the dark.”

Over-medicating could induce children into being pliable and compliant, but the effects of providing youth with medicine intended to treat serious conditions — for behaviors not deemed as grave — can have deleterious effects on their health.

Foster children arriving in custodial care for the first time have been documented bringing prescriptions in paper bags or wrapped in tissue paper, according to the suit, minus crucial information on dosages and side effects — leaving foster parents in the dark about how to properly medicate children.

Reason elaborates, “One child was hospitalized for six days after she received the wrong dose of several psychotropic medications. Another was prescribed seven different psychotropic drugs at once, including three antipsychotics; as a result, the suit says, he developed tremors and required institutionalization.”

Missouri at least theoretically attempted to bring the problem of mis- and over-prescribing psychotropic medications to foster kids under control. Beginning in 2013, a “second opinion” program — in which a board-certified child psychologist commenced review of ten different children’s prescriptions to determine popular use — effectively ceased three years in, when “obtaining complete records from prescribers and health care providers was a difficult task and the review did not render sufficient or meaningful data.”

A study by the Government Accountability Office in 2012 found nearly one-fifth of foster children, 18%, were prescribed psychotropic medications — with those in group homes or residential treatment receiving those drugs at higher rates than their counterparts in individual homes or formal kin care situations — a figure which elucidated the urgency to determine efficacy.

Multiple states then enacted controls to stem the free flow of potentially dangerous medications to foster youth, Reason continues,

“Washington established a requirement that any prescription of psychotropic drugs should receive a second opinion from a child psychiatrist. Florida requires informed consent from the kids’ legal guardians before the drugs can be administered. Texas has implemented a training program for child welfare workers and foster parents on alternatives to medication.

Last year, according to the court filing, Missouri’s Department of Social Services acknowledged

many foster care children are prescribed multiple psychotropic medications without clear evidence of benefit and with inadequate safety data. The use of multiple medications (psychotropic or otherwise) creates the potential for serious drug interactions.”

Parties to the lawsuit allege foster children have been deprived of civil rights through the prescription of psychotropic drugs as a method of behavioral control — rather than for psychiatric and psychological needs.

Due to lack of oversight and mismanagement, foster children continue to face unnecessary and harmful effects of powerful medications — often meant for treating conditions for which many foster children have not been properly diagnosed.

Plaintiffs seek an overhaul of the current poorly-managed system, including improvements to oversight, sufficient maintenance and tracking of children’s medical records, revamped second opinion procedures, and — most imperatively for health and safety — a halt in prescriptions of heavy psychotropics for behavior control.

Medicating children into oblivion because Missouri or any other state finds a program unmanageable eviscerates their human rights and — considering protection of children comprises the fundamental purpose — makes a mockery of the foster program.

If the State remains unprepared to care for children taken from birth parents and placed in foster care, the premise of removal for safety is farcical at best.

However, prescribing weighty and unnecessary medications to foster kids for off-label use certainly accomplishes one goal — indefensibly astronomical profits flow unabated into the pharmaceutical industry’s apparently bottomless pockets.

These 5 People don’t Spend Eid with their Families to make the Occasion Happier for Us*

These 5 People don’t Spend Eid with their Families to make the Occasion Happier for Us*

With Eid around the corner, please take a moment and wish well those strong folks who will be working during the holidays, instead of spending time with their families.

  1. Our nurses

Nurses, along with doctors, are always on call during Eid. With a shortage in paramedical staff, nurses barely get time to wish anyone Eid as they are wrapped up in looking over patients while on call. One really owes to them because in times of panic, both the patient and their family are usually comforted by the friendly, caring nurses.

2) Our pilots

There are those traveling to be with their families for Eid, but then there are others who are taking them there but aren’t able to do the same. Many of us dreamt of being pilots when we were young because of how cool it sounded. Its way cooler that they provide such a service to us, expecting no appreciation in return.

3) Our firefighters

Years ago a fire took place on the first day of Eid ul Fitr at a dawat gone wrong. The day was saved as almost 30 firefighters reached the spot. While we’re grateful for such heroes, do we ever wonder how they were so ready? Because instead of being at their own family dawat, they were on duty, waiting to spring into action.

4) Our army and police personnel

A huge shout out to our men and women in uniform! These fighters sacrifice their time with their families (and sometimes their own lives!) so that we can have our Eid festivities in peace.

5) Our ambulance drivers

Unfortunately, an ambulance on the road with its signals blaring is not a unique sight during Eid. Ambulance drivers and their paramedics are always on call and prepared. We remember Edhi sab and all the work he did for our country and we should also be thoughtful of all who work in his name, like many ambulance drivers, who respect the values of Ramadhan and Eid as the season of caring for those truly in need.

Wall’s picked up on this insight to pay tribute to these unsung heroes of our nation, who sacrifice time with their family for all of us. Their TVC titled “Sorry Abu” revolves around the story a young boy named Ahmed who misses his father immensely during Ramadhan.

The TVC shows the son is obviously upset as he gets to see other families getting together for iftar, but he can’t spend time with his father as he is so far away.

However, he realises that his father, who is a doctor, is actually putting into practice the true meaning of Ramadhan by helping those out in need. The boy ends his letter by apologising to his father for not understanding before and sending him a token of appreciation to let him know how proud he is and how he will always be supportive of him.

The TVC really puts things in perspective as we wonder how many times we have taken our own family for granted, or how many times we have heard a friend complain about ‘being stuck with the family’ during holidays. We never realise how for many people, it is a luxury to be able to see their family.

Pope Francis Calls for ‘One World Government’ To ‘Save Humanity’*

Pope Francis Calls for ‘One World Government’ To ‘Save Humanity’*

Given the current state of affairs, who could be granted with this burden that we could possibly trust

By Baxter Dmitry

Pope Francis called for “a one world government” and “political authority” this week, arguing that the creation of the one world government is needed to combat major issues such as “climate change.”

Speaking with Ecuador’s “El Universo” newspaper, the Pope said that the United Nations doesnt have enough power and must be granted full governmental control “for the good of humanity.”

But what is raising eyebrows is the Pope’s call for a new global political authority. Here is more from the Guardian:

Pope Francis will this week call for changes in lifestyles and energy consumption to avert the “unprecedented destruction of the ecosystem” before the end of this century, according to a leaked draft of a papal encyclical. In a document released by an Italian magazine on Monday, the pontiff will warn that failure to act would have “grave consequences for all of us”.

Francis also called for a new global political authority tasked with “tackling … the reduction of pollution and the development of poor countries and regions”. His appeal echoed that of his predecessor, pope Benedict XVI, who in a 2009 encyclical proposed a kind of super-U.N. to deal with the world’s economic problems and injustices.

The word “globalization” means exactly what it says. It is the process of transitioning the world into a global government. Religious leaders are playing their part in this great deception.

David Rockefeller famously said that a “global crisis” would have to occur before the people of the world would be willing to accept a New World Order. When the world economy suffered a dramatic crash in 2008, world leaders again proclaimed the need for a New World Order with global financial control.

As demonstrated by Pope Francis, climate change and the global warming hoax is now the global elite’s preferred method of scaremongering, as they attempt to shepherd humanity closer to unified totalitarian rule.

Disturbingly, world religious leaders are also beginning to come together as one to preach from the same hymn sheet, instructing their sheep to accept the components of the New World Order’s one world government.

In case you missed it, world leaders from a diverse collection of religious communities called for world unity in a video message released last week.

The call for a world government, led by Pope Francis, Ayatollah Al-Milani, the Dalai Lama and Rabbi Abraham Skorka, is seen as a major step on the road to the New World Order that was prophesied over 2,000 years ago.

The world religious leaders came together on June 14 to make a joint statement through a video calling on people to embrace ideas of friendship and unity, and to overcome negativity and division in society.

In reality, the call for global government by Pope Francis and other wealthy elitists has nothing to do with lifting up impoverished nations or “saving humanity.” Such a government would instead guarantee global surveillance, global wealth inequality and a world run by the exact corrupt interests currently consolidating wealth and power worldwide.

Twenty-seven high-rise apartment buildings have failed fire cladding safety tests across England so far, according to the British government.

The tests were carried out in the wake of London’s Grenfell Tower inferno, which police believe killed at least 79 people after a fire broke out at the building early on June 14.

According to the Department for Communities and Local Government, 27 buildings in 15 local authority areas have now been found with exterior cladding that does not meet safety standards.

Some of the housing developments that failed safety checks are in London, Manchester, Plymouth, and Portsmouth, the department confirmed to RT.com.

A spokesperson added that the government is working with fire safety officials to determine whether the affected buildings need to be evacuated.

 

The Metropolitan Police have determined that the Grenfell Tower fire began in a fridge freezer and is continuing to investigate whether the newly applied exterior cladding contributed to the spread of the blaze.

The insulation installed in the Grenfell Tower “combusted soon” after the beginning of a preliminary test, a London police statement said.

A total of 600 apartment buildings have been identified as having similar cladding to that fitted on Grenfell, a spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed last week.

Thousands of residents were evacuated from tower blocks in the Camden district last night after a fire safety inspection conducted jointly by the London Fire Brigade and the Camden Council.

Lunar luster triggers mating orgies, guides travelers and even can even provoke magical transformations

One November night each year, beneath the full moon, more than 130 species of corals simultaneously spawn in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Some corals spew plumes of sperm, smoldering like underwater volcanoes. Others produce eggs. But most release both eggs and sperm, packed together in round, buoyant bundles as small as peppercorns and blushed in shades of pink, orange, and yellow.

At first, the parcels wait in the lips of corals. Then, in stunning unison, numerous corals lose their seeds, which hover momentarily above their parents, preserving the shape of the reef in an effervescent echo. Gradually, the bundles drift skyward.

The first time marine biologist Oren Levy witnessed this phenomenon, in 2005, he was near Heron Island, off the east coast of Australia. Fish, marine worms, and various predatory invertebrates zipped through the water, feeding on the coral confetti, which rose slowly from the reef in huge quantities. “It’s like the whole ocean wakes up,” says Levy, who now heads a marine ecology research team at Bar Ilan University in Israel.

 “You can watch videos, you can hear about it, but once you are actually in the midst of the biggest orgy on this planet, there’s nothing else like it.”

Corals continue to reproduce in the Great Barrier Reef today, though the sections that have escaped the ravages of climate change are rapidly shrinking. Swimming near the surface of the sea that memorable night 12 years ago, Levy encountered dense pink mats of accumulating eggs and sperm. There, drenched in moonlight, gametes from different colonies began to fuse and form free-swimming larvae, which would eventually settle on the seafloor, bud, and construct new coral citadels—a process now more vital than ever.

The moon is not the only environmental cue the corals use to achieve sexual synchrony on such a massive scale; water temperature and day length also matter. Yet the moon’s presence seems to be crucial. If the sky is too cloudy, and the moon obscured, the corals will often not spawn. Sometimes they delay until the next full moon. In the course of their studies, Levy and his colleagues revealed that not only do corals have light-sensitive neurons tuned to the dim blue wavelengths of moonlight, they also have genes that change their activity level in sync with the waxing and waning moon, regulating reproduction.

Scientists have known for centuries that the moon alters Earth’s ecosystems through gravity. As it spins around our planet, warping space-time, the moon contributes to a complex contortion of the oceans, producing twin bulges we call the tides. In turn, the daily marriage and separation of land and sea transforms the topography of numerous species’ homes and the access they have to food, shelter, and each other.

The moon also stabilizes Earth’s climate. Earth does not have perfect posture; it is tilted along its polar axis, circling the sun at an angle of about 23 degrees. The moon acts as an anchor, preventing the Earth from varying its axial tilt by more than a degree or two. Without the moon, our planet would likely wobble about like a dreidel, tilting a full 10 degrees every 10,000 years, and possibly oscillating the global climate between ice ages and hellish heat the likes of which no species has ever endured.

What is becoming increasingly clear, however, is that the moon also influences life in a more surprising and subtle way: with its light. Most organisms possess an array of genetically encoded biological clocks that coordinate internal physiology and anticipate rhythmic changes in the environment. These clocks are wound by various environmental cues known as zeitgebers (time givers), such as light and temperature.

Sunlight is the best-studied zeitgeber, but it turns out that for many aquatic creatures, moonlight is just as crucial. In the past few years, scientists have rekindled a long-neglected curiosity about the moon’s power to manipulate life, reviving studies on biology’s secret moon clocks.
