Ricin is deadly, but it's not an effective Weapon of Mass Destruction on the order of Anthrax. Bioterrorism experts say the main exposure via letters in Washington, D.C., would be to the skin, which shouldn't cause serious illness.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial questions FDA decision on the new hydrocodone-only painkiller Zohydro:
The agency approves a drug that appears to be easy to abuse just one day after recommending tighter controls on narcotics.

Just two days after it recommended making Vicodin a Schedule II narcotic, the FDA approved an extended-release painkiller, Zohydro, which is made of pure hydrocodone and lacks any form of abuse-deterrent technology.
Zohydro ER packs up to 10 times more narcotic than Vicodin, and the FDA’s own staff has warned of an increased abuse risk.

FDA blocks non-abuse-deterrent OxyContin generics on patent expiration date; but original Opana generics are still out there:
The FDA has issued new labeling information for OxyContin -- on the same day the patent on the original formulation expired, thus blocking potential generic versions that do not have abuse-deterrent p...

By far the best meal we had in Vancouver during a 5-night stay. The dishes are delicious and creative. My fresh halibut came with fiddleheads -- furled ferns -- in a nettle sauce, with nettle greens and herring dumplings. Coworkers had the tuna with squash, mushrooms, pine gnocchi, and soil -- which looked like the real thing but was actually roasted mushrooms. Staff were honest and knowledgeable. Smart but unpretentious place. We went here early in our stay and after many of the following dinners we said we wished we had gone back to Forage instead.

Had a wonderful tomato and mozzarella sandwich on fresh, delicious focaccia. Loved the pancioc -- it will be hard to go back to a regular chocolate croissant now! Looking forward to the multigrain loaf, I have high hopes I won't have to buy supermarket bread ever again. Will be back here very often.

I went to CityMD in Clifton with a fever, cough, and congestion. Dr. McIntosh was an excellent diagnostician -- she ruled out several bacterial possibilities, and despite a negative rapid flu test, she fact-checked the sensitivity/specificity of the test and checked in with the CDC for details on flu cases in New Jersey to conclude that I had a viral influenza-like illness. Two days later and the fever is gone -- no antibiotics needed. Cheers to good antibiotic stewardship and excellent diagnostic skills! I'd definitely go back for other urgent care needs.

Very good authentic Danish fare. Highly recommend the lox and herring platter, and ableskiver (donut holes) with fresh strawberry jam for dessert.

Fantastic place, friendly owner and staff, and an interesting fusion: Russian, Uzbek, Korean. One of my favorite restaurants in Jersey City. Here's the meal that got me hooked (shared by two people): First, lemon ginger honey tea, with grated ginger and lemon zest. Then red borscht with sour cream, and a lamb-mint samosa. A main course of lamb pilaf. Dessert: almond cookies, a taste of chak-chak, and of course their famous cottage cheese cookies. Fantastic.
