Overdose deaths involving fentanyl are rising — up 113 percent on average each year from 2013 to 2016. Dealers are adding cheap fentanyl to the illicit drug supply, and some users get it accidentally.
Overdose deaths are increasing faster among black and Latino Americans than among whites. And there’s an especially steep rise in the number of young adults ages 25 to 34 whose death certificates include some version of the drug fentanyl.
Walmart recently announced it will discontinue its Savings Catcher program, a price-matching tool that refunds customers for any price difference between the big box retailer’s price and a competitor’s price for the same item.
The last eReceipt via the program will be processed on May 14.
Here’s how the program works: First, shoppers scan their receipts. If a lower price is detected, the customer is then issued a Walmart gift card with the difference loaded to the card.
“Since the introduction of the program, we’ve worked hard to lower prices on thousands of everyday items across our stores, which has resulted in our prices winning the vast majority of the time when you submit receipts to Savings Catcher,” read a statement on Walmart’s website.
In a rebuke of the Trump administration’s ‘energy-first’ agenda, a judge rules greenhouse gas emissions must be considered
Drilling had been stalled on more than 300,000 acres of public land in Wyoming after it was ruled the Trump administration violated environmental laws by failing to consider greenhouse gas emissions. The federal judge has ordered the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which manages US public lands and issues leases to the energy industry, to redo its analysis.
The decision stems from an environmental lawsuit. WildEarth Guardians, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and the Western Environmental Law Center sued the BLM in 2016 for failing to calculate and limit the amount of greenhouse gas emissions from future oil and gas projects.
Jenny McCarthy doesn’t hold back.
The 46-year-old TV personality opens up about her “miserable” year at the view from 2013 to 2014 in Ramin Setoodeh’s upcoming expose, Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View; in an excerpt just published by Vulture, McCarthy accuses Whoopi Goldberg of being controlling, and compares Barbara Walters to Mommie Dearest.
“You know the movie Mommie Dearest? I remember as a child watching that movie and going, ‘Holy cow!’ I’ve never seen a woman yell like that before until I worked with Barbara Walters,” McCarthy candidly says.
Before the former model joined The View as a co-host in season 17, she appeared on the program to discuss her book, which argued that vaccines weakened her son’s immune system and triggered his autism. Upon arriving at the studio, McCarthy recalls being asked by a producer to meet with Walters. “I walked into her dressing room and she blew up at me,” she claims. “She was screaming, ‘How dare you say this! That autism can be cured?’ My knees were shaking. I remember my whole body was shaking.”

A phone scam targeting families uses information obtained through social media to convince people that their loved one has been abducted, NBC News reported.
Known as “virtual kidnapping,” hoaxers use the social media information to try and trick the people they call. It has even gone so far as a recording that sounds like the loved one is on the line.
The callers demand money immediately, working to keep people on the phone and have funds wired to them before finding out their loved one was never taken, according to NBC News.
Police urge anyone who receives a call like this to hang up immediately and call police. Never say your loved one’s name or give any information that could be used to trick you into thinking the hoax is real.

Plans to revitalize the historic produce terminal in the Strip District are moving forward with possible new restaurants, retail and office space constructed in the five-block-long building.
Justin Williams scored the tying goal with 1:56 left in regulation, and Brock McGinn also scored for the Hurricanes.
They won their fourth in five games and earned an important two points in the tight Eastern Conference playoff race — and perhaps just as important, prevented the Penguins from picking up a second point.
