‘SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT’ Most of the Molly is one of several synthetic designer drugs that have been flooding the U.S. and European marketplace from chemical labs primarily based in China, Payne said. “A lot of people are missing the boat here,” he said. Molly could be anything … 80 to 90 percent of the time we are given a chemical or substance believed to be Molly, we’re finding most of the time it is something completely different.” Four recent deaths attributed to Molly have thrust the club drug into the national spotlight. On August 31, a 23-year-old Syracuse University graduate and a 20-year-old University of New Hampshire student died after taking what they believed to be Molly during an electronic music concert in New York City. The deaths, and several other reported overdoses, prompted the Electric Zoo festival to cancel the final day of the concert. A University of Virginia student died at a rave in Washington, D.C., the same weekend, after taking what her friends said was Molly. Days earlier in Boston, a 19-year-old woman died in a club and three concert-goers overdosed at the waterfront, police said. In Atlanta, this weekend’s TomorrowWorld music festival organizers warned on its website of zero-tolerance for MDMA use, but noted: “If you or someone around you has taken something that you are concerned about or need help, it is important that you tell our staff. We are here to help and never judge.” The number of visits to U.S.
18th Meeting International highlights bilateral relations between Brazil and the United States
1, 2013, 1:00 p.m. EDT 18th Meeting International highlights bilateral relations between Brazil and the United States SAO PAULO, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — At the opening of the International Seminar held on September 27th at the 18th Meeting International organized by LIDE – Grupo de Lideres Empresariais [‘Group of Business Leaders’], Helio Ramos, ambassador and consul-general of Brazil in Miami, underscored that the two countries are experiencing a very prosperous moment for business. “This event is intended to foster relations between Brazil and the United States,” said Ramos. The gathering brought together 200 executives and government officials from Brazil and the U.S. from September 26th through the 29th in Miami, Florida. Florida governor Rick Scott called for a strengthening of economic relations with Brazil, and criticized the requirement for visas between the two countries during the first panel discussion of the day on “Economic, institutional and tourism relations between Brazil and the United States.” “The visa problem is a significant one, because I want to increase our relations with other countries, particularly Brazil,” said the Governor, who received support from LIDE President, Joao Doria Jr. To the Governor of Goias, Marconi Perillo, the agricultural production from his state is a very important part of the trade balance. “Goias is responsible for 50% of national grain production, half of the livestock herds, and 20% of the sugarcane for the production of Brazilian ethanol,” he explained. “Brazilian agriculture is by far the most sustainable in the world,” said Roberto Rodrigues, former Minister of Agriculture and President of LIDE AGRONEGOCIOS [‘LIDE Agribusiness’] in his talk on “The strength of ethanol and oranges in Brazil’s exports to the U.S.” In 2012, Brazil’s trade balance had a surplus of US$ 19 billion. Agribusiness alone accounted for US$ 79 billion. Ethanol and orange juice are two products that stand out among potential exports of Brazilian agribusiness to the United States. The crisis in 2008 caused Brazil to reduce the production of ethanol, and at present there are no plants being constructed. “The government wants to fight inflation and one of the ways to keep it from taking off is to freeze gas prices, which results in an increase in the price of ethanol,” the former minister explained. The United States is the second largest market for our orange juice, second only to the European Union.
