Ein frohes neues Jahr liebe Rockhütte-Hörer, die ganze Band hat Weihnachten und Silvester mehr oder weniger unbeschadet überstanden, lediglich Danger liegt seitdem im Koma. Ein wunderbares neues Jahr um wieder Dinge zu besprechen die die Welt bedeuten. Was gab es eigentlich zu Weihnachten und welche Vorsätze für das neue Jahr möchte man wieder mal nicht umsetzen? Zudem gibt es Dinge von größter Bedeutung zu klären...zum Beispiel wie der Plural zu Ananas oder Sofa lautet. Das wir Kinder des Glücks sind ist inzwischen ja kein Geheimnis mehr, aber welche mysteriöse Glücksfälle sich bei uns und besonders bei Onkel Tom bereits zugetragen haben, sollte man sich auf jeden Fall anhören. Im Musikerlexikon sind wir inzwischen beim Buchstaben H angekommen....wie Heroin...oder Headbangen...oder Heavy Metal...hier lernt man so einiges dazu, was man lieber niemals gewusst hätte. Kommen wir zu Dingen die man am liebsten niemals getan hätte....richtig...es geht um den Genuss von Alkohol. Immer wieder dieser Kater.

David is an expert in the neuroscience of pain and the conversation focuses mainly on pain: how does our brain sense and perceive pain? Why does pain sometimes become chronic, and last for a long-time? How do various classes of pain drugs work to relieve pain? They  discuss NSAIDs and opioids, including oxycodone, heroin, and fentanyl, as well as some interesting novel pain drugs currently in development. A portion of the podcast has a visual component, where David shows some of the technology he has helped develop that allows for automated, high-throughput measurements of animal behavior to detect and measure pain. Towards the end, they also discuss how this tech could be used for the characterization of novel psychoactive drugs and psychedelics. USEFUL LINKSSign up for the weekly Mind & Matter newsletter[https://mindandmatter.substack.com/?sort=top]Download the podcast & follow Nick at his website[https://www.nickjikomes.com]Athletic Greens, comprehensive daily nutrition (Free 1-year supply Vitamin D w/ purchase)[http://www.athleticgreens.com/mindandmatter]Organize your digital highlights & notes w/ Readwise (2 months free w/ sub)[https://readwise.io/nickjikomes/]Learn more about our podcast sponsor, Dosist[https://dosist.com]Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/nickjikomes)

Charles won conference three times as a wrestler in high school and went on to wrestle in college. He graduated with a management degree from University of Wisconsin and achieved success in corporate America before getting divorced and experiencing homelessness.Charles, aka Pops, is an amazing thinker and speaker, explaining how he was always a planner in life but after being twice incarcerated and then living outdoors, he had to learn to just roll with it. My mother was clinically insane and homeless most of her life. I was a drug addict for 13 years in Baltimore City so I have a slight perspective to speak with Charles candidly, about trying to maintain his sanity amidst the 100-person homeless tent city encampment in Madison, Wisconsin.  As an educated, outspoken, and traveled black man in America, Charles offers incredible insight into the absolute love for his daughters, his commitment to mindfulness, and a person trying to lead by example despite the local powers to be taking advantage of him.Charles speaks of his need to try and do better and rise above the Jim Crow laws of racial injustice, trying to control his behavior and his response to an incessant challenge from the mass incarceration system of the black man in America. We touch on how Dane County Wisconsin makes it illegal to be homeless and despite most everything taken away from him, Charles has remained sober for 10 years and has not surrendered to the hardcore drug use running wild in the local homeless community. We also speak of Charles saving three lives this year, his self-appointed role of first responder in his homeless community, and how his attempt to help save lives by trying to prevent drug overdoses is also illegal. A great conversation and one I am honored to be part of.

Recruiting disillusioned black Vietnam vets from his Harlem-themed joint, Ike trafficked billions of dollars of ultra-pure Golden Triangle dope into the States - right under the nose of Uncle Sam. But did he ever smuggle heroin stitched into the bodies of fallen war heroes? This episode focuses on one of organized crime's most interesting, but least known, kingpins.

In his latest book, To Govern the Globe: World Orders and Catastrophic Change, historian Alfred McCoy explains how a succession of catastrophes—from the devastating Black Death of 1350 through the coming climate crisis of 2050—has produced a relentless succession of rising empires and fading world orders. During the long centuries of Iberian and British imperial rule, the quest for new forms of energy led to the development of the colonial sugar plantation as a uniquely profitable kind of commerce. In a time when issues of race and social justice have arisen with pressing urgency, the book explains how the plantation's extraordinary profitability relied on a production system that literally worked the slaves to death, creating an insatiable appetite for new captives that made the African slave trade a central feature of modern capitalism for over four centuries.   After surveying past centuries roiled by imperial wars, national revolutions, and the struggle for human rights, McCoy seeks to prognosticate about the future, highlighting the ways in which climate change and changing world orders will shape the life opportunities for younger generations. What does the past tell us about the future of the global order? How and why is this order changed? And what will this mean for future generations?   Alfred McCoy Alfred W. McCoy holds the Harrington chair of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he teaches classes on the Vietnam War, modern empires, and U.S. foreign policy. Most recently, he is the author of "In the Shadows of the American Century: The Rise and Decline of U.S. Global Power" (Chicago, 2017). He is also the author of "Policing America's Empire: The United States, the Philippines, and the Rise of the Surveillance State" (Madison, 2009) which won the Kahin Prize from the Association for Asian Studies. His best-known book, "The Politics of Heroin," stirred controversy when the C.I.A. tried to block its publication back in 1972, but it has remained in print for nearly 50 years, been translated into nine languages, and is generally regarded as the "classic" work on global drug trafficking.   About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

In this episode of HYDRATE I interview my baby brother Daniel, comedian, musician, father and husband. He shares his raw and REAL journey with addiction. Do you or someone you know struggle with addiction to pain medication or another form of addiction? In this episode of HYDRATE, Tracy's baby brother Daniel opens up about his battle with addiction and how the root of his addiction was a desire to numb out the pain of not feeling like he was enough.  His humbling journey is one we can all relate to. His vulnerability and quick quips will keep you engaged as he shares an honest journey of the mind and the progression of addiction.    Daniel was in a car accident at 21 years old and was prescribed pain killers that ended up being upwards of 900 pills a month. This eventually led to street drugs such as Methamphetamine's and Heroin    In his story he opens up about how there was nothing anyone could say or any rehab (after 3 years of rehab) that could help him until he was ready to change. He shares the turning point, rock bottom and the mindset that he needed to help him choose that drugs were no longer an option for him.  What we discuss… Intro - Tracy and Daniel discuss growing up in a missionary home and feeling different from the others. 11:45  - How the addiction started off. Seemed so innocent. Prescription meds for pain. 18:21 - The realization that the back pain was bad but the addiction was worse 22:14 - Prescribed a large dose of medication that became a lethal cocktail. 24:41 - Realization that the medication was worse than the heroine 27:32 - Wanting to die because he felt trapped in the drugs  32:41 Learning to show vulnerability was healing 35:03 The root of addiction was not feeling enough  45:16 The truth about getting street drugs in Mexico 49:25 - The suicide attempt and the moment of clarity 57:33 - Rock bottom and the turning point 1:04:03 Having hope for the future and admitting to himself his problem was the key to getting  clean 1:08:32 The current mindset that keeps him clean.

Why do People Take Opioids? How Do They Work? – Dr. Jason Jones Elizabeth City NC, Chiropractor You must have heard of the term “opioids” and wonder what it means, why people take them, and how they work. Well, we shall be discussing all of that in this short piece. What are opioids? Opioids are a class of pain-relieving drugs that are naturally found in the opium poppy plant. These drugs work in the brain to produce several effects, including pain relief. Some opioids, such as fentanyl, are synthesized in a laboratory Opioids can either be prescription drugs (referred to as pain killers) or they can be so-called street drugs, such as heroin. Types of opioids There are different types of opioids that have several names, including: Fentanyl Codeine Oxycodone Hydrocodone Morphine Oxymorphone These opioids are often prescribed by doctors in different strengths and administered in different forms, depending on the situation, and the level of pain. Heroin is illegal and highly addictive with no sanctioned medical use. These opioids are sold under different brand names such as Percocet, Oxycontin, Vicodin, and Palladone. Why do people take opioids? Many prescription opioids block the pain signals between the brain and the body. And these drugs are typically used to treat severe pain. Opioids, in addition to controlling pain, can make some people feel happy, relaxed, or “high.” Doctors often prescribe opioids for chronic headaches and backaches, especially for patients experiencing severe pain from cancer and those recovering from surgery. Also, opioids are recommended for adults who have been hurt playing sports or who have been seriously injured in auto accidents, falls, or other incidents. How do opioids work? Opioids attach to nerve receptors (proteins) on nerve cells in the brain, gut, spinal cord, and other body parts. The drugs block pain messages sent from the body through the spinal cord to the brain. When these opioids travel through your blood and to receptors in your brain cells, the cells release signals that muffle pain perceptions and boost feelings of pleasure. Opioids can be addictive, especially when they're used to manage pain over a long period of time. How are opioids taken? Many opioids are taken as pills, while some are taken through injection or through an IV. Other ways you can get opioids include: Nasal spray Skin patch Shot into a muscle Implanted pump Shot into the space around the spinal cord Suppository However, how you take them depends on the situation you're trying to tackle. Most times, opioids are used under close supervision by a physician. Medical Doctors (Physician anesthesiologists) who specialize in pain management have good training in prescribing opioid and non-opioid medications. The effects of opioids can be either short-lasting or long-lasting. The short-lasting opioids often work alone or in combination with other types of pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. You can start feeling relief from 15 to 30 minutes, and the effect should last for 3 to 4 hours. You may get the much-needed relief from opioids, but the risks and side effects of these drugs are of major concern. At low doses, opioids may cause you to feel sleepy, and at higher doses, you may suffer reduced heart function and slow breathing, which can lead to death. Other negative effects include addition, loss of consciousness, and more. However, you can achieve this pain relief using natural holistic measures. Chiropractic is a proven method to manage pain in a safe and effective way. You can consult Dr. Jason Jones at our Chiropractic Office at Elizabeth City, NC, to learn more about how chiropractic care is a safer treatment option for pain and other health ailments.

The contemporary opioid crisis is widely seen as new and unprecedented. Not so. It is merely the latest in a long series of drug crises stretching back over a century. In White Market Drugs: Big Pharma and the Hidden History of Addiction in America (U Chicago Press, 2020), David Herzberg explores these crises and the drugs that fueled them, from Bayer's Heroin to Purdue's OxyContin and all the drugs in between: barbiturate "goof balls," amphetamine "thrill pills," the "love drug" Quaalude, and more. As Herzberg argues, the vast majority of American experiences with drugs and addiction have taken place within what he calls "white markets," where legal drugs called medicines are sold to a largely white clientele. These markets are widely acknowledged but no one has explained how they became so central to the medical system in a nation famous for its "drug wars"--until now. Drawing from federal, state, industry, and medical archives alongside a wealth of published sources, Herzberg re-connects America's divided drug history, telling the whole story for the first time. He reveals that the driving question for policymakers has never been how to prohibit the use of addictive drugs, but how to ensure their availability in medical contexts, where profitability often outweighs public safety. Access to white markets was thus a double-edged sword for socially privileged consumers, even as communities of color faced exclusion and punitive drug prohibition. To counter this no-win setup, Herzberg advocates for a consumer protection approach that robustly regulates all drug markets to minimize risks while maintaining safe, reliable access (and treatment) for people with addiction. Accomplishing this requires rethinking a drug/medicine divide born a century ago that, unlike most policies of that racially segregated era, has somehow survived relatively unscathed into the twenty-first century. By showing how the twenty-first-century opioid crisis is only the most recent in a long history of similar crises of addiction to pharmaceuticals, Herzberg forces us to rethink our most basic ideas about drug policy and addiction itself--ideas that have been failing us catastrophically for over a century. David Herzberg is an associate professor of history at the University of Buffalo is also the author of Happy Pills in America from Milltown to Prozac. David is also the co-editor of the journal Social History of Alcohol and Drugs.  Jay Shifman is a vulnerable storyteller, a stigma-destroying speaker, and the founder of Choose Your Struggle podcast.

On this episode of the Sofa King Podcast, we talk about the hits and misses of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. This iconic band has changed styles and band members more than any in recent history. This is due to constant drug addiction and in-fighting. And boy, do I mean drug addiction. The lead singer, Anthony Kiedis, has been in and out of rehab several times and been fired from the band twice. Another member named Hillel Slovak died of an overdose. But, how long did it take Red Hot Chili Peppers to find true success? When did Kiedis propose to Blondie? Did he really lose his virginity to his father's 18 year old girlfriend? Listen, laugh, learn.   Visit Our Sources: https://rockmusicrevival.com/2019/05/20/the-most-insane-stories-about-anthony-kiedis/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hot_Chili_Peppers https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/red-hot-chili-peppers-new-album-frusciante-tour-1241119/ https://rwrant.co.za/red-hot-chili-peppers-facts/ https://www.upi.com/Archives/1990/04/03/Singer-Anthony-Kiedis-convicted-of-sexual-battery-indecent-exposure/2421639115200/
