The Push to Legalize Magic Mushrooms for Depression and PTSD | WIRED

Activists, entrepreneurs, and doctors in the US and Canada are working to decriminalize psilocybin psychotherapy and calling for a psychedelic revolution.

Indeed, magic mushrooms are having a therapeutic moment. In North America, at least four organizations, each with unique strategies, are working to expand access to psilocybin for anyone with mental health issues, dying or not. These groups hope to undo decades of psilocybin prohibition by removing criminal penalties for possession or cultivation, or by providing access to psilocybin in a therapist’s offices, or both.

5 minors arrested in deadly shooting of Nashville musician – CNN

(CNN)Five minors are charged with criminal homicide in the deadly shooting of a Nashville musician, police said.

The suspects, ages 12 to 16, had a stolen loaded gun with them when they were arrested, Metro Nashville Police said. CNN isn’t naming the suspects.
The five were in a stolen pickup truck in an alley behind Kyle Yorlets’ home Thursday afternoon when they robbed him of his wallet, investigators said. It’s believed Yorlets, 24, was shot when he refused to hand over the keys to his vehicle.
The stolen truck was found later Thursday, according to police.

Westminster dog show 2019 schedule: Dates, what TV channel, livestream times and best in show | NJ.com

Were you bored by the Rams and the Patriots? If you’d prefer soulful eyes, lustrous coats and an elegant gait, the Super Bowl of the dog world is here — the 2019 Westminster Kennel Club dog show

Whether you just want to tune in to see your own dog’s breed compete or want a play-by-play of all the action, here is our guide to the 143rd Westminster dog show.

The main dog show will air on FS1 (Fox Sports 1) from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 12. But some other activities precede the main event — for more on those, see below.

Best in show will be awarded at the end of the competition on Tuesday, February 12. Whichever dog is chosen will have to beat competition from six other groups.

Here’s a brief overview of how that works: the seven Westminster categories are designated by the American Kennel Club’s classification of various breeds into herding, hound, working, sporting, non-sporting, toy and terrier groups. After dogs compete for best of breed on both Monday and Tuesday, the winner of each of those larger groups advances to the Westminster final.

Hempfield Republican announces bid for commissioner | TribLIVE

Heather Cordial, 39, a Republican from Hempfield, said she will campaign on a platform of improving education and job creation in the county.

“We have a major challenge in front of us. The manufacturing companies are thriving but will only continue to do so if there is a trained workforce to meet their needs and they are rightly concerned about the issue. It’s all about workforce training.” Cordial said. “The more successful the businesses are, the more jobs they will create and the broader our tax base will be.”

Since 1999, Cordial has been a member of the U.S. Air Force reserves, serving as a health services manager.
