The number of drug-related overdose deaths in New Orleans has surpassed that of murder deaths, perhaps for the first time.

The Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office said that there were 211 drug-related deaths last year, exceeding the number of murders, which was 175, reported the Times-Picayune.

The drug-related deaths were more than double the 92 drug-related deaths reported in 2015. Opioid deaths were double the 81 in 2015, said the city coroner on Monday.

There were 211 drug-related deaths in NOLA in 2016, more than the 175 murders, said the coroner - much of that due to opioids such as Fentanyl, above

The Decoy Shot
The very first shot fired in Dealey Plaza at 12:30 PM on November 22, 1963, coined the “Decoy shot” (p. 48) by Newcomb and Adams in Murder From Within, marks the beginning of the covert operation to murder Kennedy and blame it on Oswald. The true origin of the first gunshot heard in Dealey Plaza was adroitly determined by Newcomb and Adams and they deserve full recognition for that discovery. Knowledge of the Decoy shot is unknown to the general public and unrecognized by scholars and authors on the JFK assassination, but it is one of the more important breakthroughs to date, in my opinion, in accurately comprehending the sequence of events that unfolded in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963 (despite tremendous effort on the part of the government to conceal and obscure the facts of what really happened).

The Decoy shot was not fired from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository as the cover story would have you believe, but rather from a revolver fired into the air from the rear seat of the Secret Service car following immediately behind the blue convertible carrying Vice President Lyndon Johnson when it turned the corner of Houston onto Elm street on that fateful day.

One person was killed and 14 injured after gunfire erupted inside a packed nightclub in Cincinnati, Ohio, just after 1 am on Sunday morning, with the shooter said to still be at large.


The motive was unclear, but Cincinnati Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said on Twitter that “there are no indications this incident is terrorism related.” The shooting took place around 1 a.m. when hundreds of people were inside the Cameo Nightlife club, which the Cincinnati Police Department said has had “multiple problems” in the past.

The United States knows that peaceful power from atomic energy is no dream of the future. ..To hasten the day when fear of the atom will begin to disappear from the minds of people, and the governments of the East and West, there are certain steps that can be taken now.

The island nation of Japan is ranked third in the world in terms of the number of functioning nuclear reactors on its territory.

Why would the one country to experience the destructive potential of nuclear power in wartime, the culture that gave the world ‘Godzilla,’ and has endured the meltdowns of three reactors in 2011 continue to embrace nuclear power?

As part of the Global Research News Hour’s commemoration of the sixth anniversary of the Fukushima Daichii nuclear catastrophe, we focus on the historical and political context of the disaster.

First up, we hear from Professor Peter Kuznick about the early years after the War. He explains the role of Japan in America’s postwar geostrategy, and comments on the public relations campaign that convinced the population of the Asian country to stop worrying and love nuclear power.

Later, Canadian nuclear expert Gordon Edwards returns to the program to comment on Canada’s connections with the Japanese nuclear industry and on how the Fukushima disaster should have informed Canadian nuclear policy and regulations.

Finally, we hear from celebrated Kyoto-based anti-nuclear activist Aileen Mioko Smith about the evolution of the anti-nuclear movement within Japan.

We also hear from a short video produced by Fairewinds Energy Education (fairewinds.org) outlining the fallacy of nuclear power as a strategy for fighting climate change.

The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the aerial attack targeted the town of Maskanah, located 100 kilometers southeast of the provincial capital city of Aleppo, on Sunday, Arabic-language Qasioun Agency news outlet reported.

The report said ten people were killed and several others injured in the air raid.

‘An investigation into the displacement of several tombstones at a primarily Jewish cemetery in Brooklyn, earlier suspected to be an act of anti-Semitic vandalism, found the cause to be unintentional, police said.

The NYPD hate crime task force inspected the grounds at the Washington Cemetery on Sunday after as many as 42 gravestones were discovered knocked down late Saturday night.

High winds, eroded soil and neglect were cited as the probable causes.

“It definitely was not vandalism,” Marisa Tarantino, general manager of the Washington Cemetery on Bay Parkway in Midwood told reporters, the Daily News reported.’

‘Recent studies supposedly proving the effectiveness of the HPV vaccine manipulated data to make the cervical cancer death rate among black women look much lower than it actually is, according to a study recently published in the journal Cancer.

Vaccine supporters had pointed to the studies as evidence that cervical cancer rates have been falling due to vaccination against HPV (human papillomavirus), several strains of which have been linked to cervical cancer development. But the death rate of black women from cervical cancer is actually twice as high as was reported by the studies, the new analysis found.

Prior research has also shown that the commercially available HPV vaccines may not protect against the virus strains most likely to infect black women.’

A Maryland woman working as a nanny has been arrested after police said she force fed an eight-month-old baby girl who then died.


Oluremi Oyindasola, 66, of Glenarden, Maryland, has been charged with second-degree murder, first-degree child abuse resulting in death and other offenses, Prince George’s County Police said Wednesday.

A home surveillance system recorded Oyindasola napping when the crying child, eight-month-old Enita Salubi, approached in a toddler walker, according to police.

Police charging documents say Oyindasola unsuccessfully tried feeding the child, then ‘proceeded to pour a large amount of white liquid directly inside the victim’s mouth’.

Police say Enita, who was force-fed a second bottle, had ‘difficulty breathing and signs of medical distress’.
