Terrifyingly, two people have been treated this week for using the drug in Arizona, sparking fears among doctors than an epidemic is on its way.

“We’ve had two cases this past week that have occurred in Arizona,” Dr. Frank LoVecchio, co-medical director at Banner’s Poison Control Center, told KLTV.

“As far as I know, these are the first cases in the United States that are reported. So we’re extremely frightened,” he added.

“We’re afraid there are going to be more and more cases,” he ended.

The use of Krokodil, which has the medical name of desomorphine, spread across Russia “like a plague” since 2002 and there are now 3 million users, a Time magazine investigation reported in 2011.

Harlem of the future….2025

Mayor envisions destinations for tourists, tech geeks and science nerds. Residents and some pols fear more gentrification.
Is this a scene from the Meatpacking District? No, it’s how the intersection Amsterdam Ave. near W. 125th St. will look within the next decade, according to developer Janus Property Company.

 Is this a scene from the Meatpacking District? No, it’s how the intersection Amsterdam Ave. near W. 125th St. will look within the next decade, according to developer Janus Property Company.A new “Grand Central Station” for Harlem. A biotech center. A jazz museum. A new home for a national civil rights organization. A massive brewery and pub.

It’s all part of Mayor Bloomberg’s vision for 125th St. — circa 2025.

The Bloomberg administration hand-picked developers to move into empty city-owned eyesores in hopes of turning the Main Street of Black America into a cross between Silicon Valley and Manhattan’s chic Meatpacking District.

Mega-developer Scott Metzner, head of Janus Property Company, beat out 16 competitors in the bidding war for one of the biggest projects — converting the dilapidated 280,000-square-foot former Taystee Bakery factory into a new-age home for startups, eateries and shops.

The National Urban League has its own vision for a new headquarters at 121 W. 125th St.

The National Urban League has its own vision for a new headquarters at 121 W. 125th St.

“It’s Harlem’s turn to move into the 21st century,” said Metzner.

Janus is spending around $500 million on 11 buildings between Amsterdam Ave. and Morningside Ave. — part of an effort to turn west Harlem’s so-called “Factory District” into a mini-Dumbo.

“For the first time in 100 years this will be an active neighborhood again,” Metzner said.

The Metro-North station on 125th St. is a mess. The city envisions a “Grand Central Station” for uptown.

RICHARD HARBUS/FOR NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

The Metro-North station on 125th St. is a mess. The city envisions a “Grand Central Station” for uptown.

The “Factory District” idea came from a 2008 rezoning of the 125th St. allowing the construction of towering condo and office buildings in lieu of low-rise mom-and-pop shops.

Then the city’s Economic Development Corporation decided which abandoned properties could serve as upper Manhattan’s startup meccas.

“Harlem’s growth and evolution will ensure it becomes one of New York City’s premier destinations for generations to come,” said Economic Development Corporation President Kyle Kimball. “The arts, culture, science and industrial sectors of Harlem will continue to thrive.”

One of the first fruits of the redevelopment effort is Harlem biospace, opening Nov. 1 after scoring $626,000 in city funds. It’s expected to host about 15 science startups including several budding drug companies.

The former home of the Taystee Bakery factory on W. 125th St. near Amsterdam Ave. will house tech companies, bio labs, bars and restaurants, the city says.
NYC ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORP.The former home of the Taystee Bakery factory on W. 125th St. near Amsterdam Ave. will house tech companies, bio labs, bars and restaurants, the city says.

“It is a tremendously attractive location. There is nothing like it in Manhattan,” said Columbia University biomedical engineering professor Sam Sia, who will rent out lab space, and the necessary research equipment, for $995 per month.

Harlem’s tentative — and glitzy — makeover does have its naysayers.

State Sen. Adriano Espaillat (D-Harlem) said the ambitious projects do not include enough apartments in west Harlem, where the median household income is $29,000 a year.

Currently, though, it doesn’t look like much.

“Economic development isn’t beneficial to our community unless it helps longtime residents, and we’re going to need substantially more affordable housing,” Espaillat said.

There is some housing in the larger city plan: The future headquarters of the National Urban League, for example, will share the building with 60 low-cost apartments, plus the Museum of the Urban Civil Rights Experience and ample ground-floor retail.

But it’s the only spot in the sweeping revamp which include cheap places to live.

Still, the National Jazz Museum is planning to open down the street. And further east near Park Ave., Community Board 11 and Economic Development Corporation officials are hoping to transform the decaying Metro-North Railroad station into the “uptown Grand Central” with hip shops and restaurants.

New York City to effectively BAN McDonald’s

Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 8.20.31 PM

If you’re looking to score a Big Mac in New York, you might be out of luck. New regulations proposed in New York would effectively ban McDonald’s from the city.

You may remember not long ago there was an attempt to ban certain sizes of sodas, but ultimately the ban was ruled unconstitutional. Now there is a new approach to safety measures in the Big Apple.

Citing the argument that the food from McDonald’s is just as dangerous if not worse for your health than many illegal drugs, officials are moving to place many of the items on the fast food restaurant’s menu on the prohibited substances list.

The new scheduling of what officials are calling dangerous substances which they claim lead to crime and death, effectively makes it illegal for McDonald’s to operate within the city unless they drastically revamp their menu.

City officials largely refused comment when asked about the effectiveness of such a ban, stating only that “if you peddle dangerous substances in this city, you will prosecuted. The freedom of people to be healthy trumps your right to sell a product.”

(Music Video) Drake- Hold On,We’re Going Home

Rapper Gucci Mane sobers up during incarceration and APOLOGIZES from his Twitter Rants during his “PURPLE LEAN-DRANK” addiction!!!

Gucci Mane

Gucci Mane who is currently incarcerated, will be going to rehab soon due to his lean addiction.

Gucci sent direct apology to Birdman, Rick Ross and Drake.

“I’m addicted to lean & that s*** ain’t no joke,”

“I wanna personally apologize to birdman, ross & drake. Dem my n*****. I 100% regret my words & actions .

“I’m addicted to lean & that shit ain’t no joke. I can barely remember all the things I’ve done & said. However there’s no excuse”.

“I’ve been drinking lean for 10plus years & I must admit it has destroyed me. I wanna be the first rapper to admit”

“I just wanna man up right now & take this time to apologize to my family, friends, the industry & most of all my fans. I’m SORRY”!

This is what Gucci Mane and many others (who deny addiction) are addicted to:

Lean drank

“Lean” aka “Dirty Sprite” aka “Sizzurp” aka “Purple Drank” aka “DRANK” is mostly a mixture of Sprite soda and Cough syrup (Promethazene/ Codeine) which has its roots traced back to Houston, TX made popular from the late DJ…”DJ Screw” and the “S.U.C.“.

Screw

For those of you that dont know about this “concoction”…this is what it can do to the human body:

– Wiki version

Purple drank is confirmed or suspected to have caused the deaths of several prominent users. Respiratory depression is a potentially serious or fatal adverse drug reaction associated with the use of codeine, but mainly the danger lies in the much more potent and CNS-depressing phenothiazine-related antihistamine promethazine. This depression is dose-related and is the mechanism for the potentially fatal consequences of overdose: respiratory or cardiac arrest. As with most CNS depressants, mixing with alcohol greatly increases the risk of respiratory failure and other complications

The 10 Best Redesigned NFL Logos

the-top-10-redesigned-nfl-logos-13

We decided to pick our ten favorite reinterpretations and present them next to their current iterations. These are the ten best. Click here to see all: http://www.highsnobiety.com/2013/09/23/the-10-best-reworked-nfl-logos/

During the offseason, graphic desinger Max O’Brien decided to apply his artistic skills to the world of the NFL by completely redesigning the logos of the 32 franchises that make up the National Football League. In commenting about the process on his own blog O’Brien states, “I’ve been a fan of the NFL since ‘06 (I’m not from the States) and the aesthetics have always been one of the sport’s drawcards for me. But as I’m pretty sure is the case with most people who call themselves designers, no matter what we see out there, we always think we can do a better job. NFL logos are a funny business. Some have remained the same for generations while others change regularly, but for the most part the underlying theme of the team has stayed the same for all. Not just in name but in the visuals. There are many teams in the NFL with good logos, strong visually that have stood the test of time and through the many changing visual trends over the years. There are also a lot of really crap ones. But every logo has a history and a fan base that clings to it. When I approach design, I rarely design purely for myself; the catalyst may be of my own ambitions but in the end I design for other people. I get joy out of delighting others with what I create. With that in mind, I set myself parameters for this challenge based on the target audience. Or rather audiences. 32 different teams, 32 different sets of fans, 32 themes, 32 personalities, 32 stories and 32 lines of history. 32 different cities and landmarks. 32 different names.”
