Since 2017, Cook Children's Emergency Department has treated more than 300 children and teens for gunshot wounds. One of those children, a 4-year-old boy, changed the life of Daniel Guzman, M.D., forever. While Dr. Guzman couldn't save this child from his fatal injuries, he vowed to do everything in his power to save other children from the same fate. Later that year, he launched the Aim for Safety program at Cook Children's, which focuses on preventing gun injuries in children and teens. On this episode of Raising Joy, Dr. Guzman (who is a gun owner himself) explains how parents can protect their children, regardless of whether or not they have a gun in their home.

Fentanyl poisoning, drug overdose, and mental health are growing problems in the United States with each year more and more youth being victims of these social issues. In this podcast, we talk to the founders of the Michael Leonardi foundation and the parents of Michael Leonardi who lost his life to fentanyl poisoning in 2020. Please help support their cause and help raise awareness of this matter.  BIO: Mona Leonardi is the co-founder of the Michael Leonardi Foundation, a bay area non-profit organization dedicated to raising illicit fentanyl awareness in communities across the north bay area.  After losing her son, Michael on February 24, 2020, at the age of 20 to fentanyl poisoning, she started the foundation, along with Michael's father and sister, to be Michael's voice and the voice of those lost to fentanyl poisoning.  Fentanyl, a potent synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin, is taking the lives of young Americans at an alarming rate at the hands of drug trafficking organizations and dealers.  The number one cause of death in the U.S. for ages 18-45 is fentanyl. Mark graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology and is originally from Long Island NY.  He started a career in the hospitality industry working for iconic hotel companies such as the Four Seasons, the historic Shoreham Hotel in Washington DC, the world-famous Hotel del Coronado, and the Claremont Resort and Spa before starting his own company planning large-scale corporate events nationwide.  Currently, Mark is the general manager of a tour company with offices in Napa and Sonoma Valleys while he is not working on the Michael Leonardi Foundation.  His daughter Julia is a student at UCSB, and he also has a three-year-old son, Samual, who keeps him busy but very happy.  He also thinks about and misses his son Michael daily.  Mark's goals are to help spread the word about the dangers of fentanyl poisoning and help keep our children safe.

EA - Zzapp Malaria: More effective than bed nets? (Wanted: CTO, COO & Funding) by Yonatan Cale

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Zzapp Malaria: More effective than bed nets? (Wanted: CTO, COO & Funding), published by Yonatan Cale on September 9, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. TL;DR: This post describes Zzapp's approach and effectiveness from their own perspective, intended as an intro aimed at the Effective Altruism community, as an invitation to investigate further and maybe fund them. They claim to be 2x more cost effective than bed nets in reducing malaria in urban and semi-urban areas (over 70% of Africa's population). Epistemic status: Based on conversations with Arnon, the CEO of Zzapp Malaria, not cross checked with other info such as Givewell's review of Against Malaria Foundation. Zzapp's approach and theoretical reason to think it would work You can skip to their experiment and how it went, if you prefer. TL;DR: Spray water bodies with larvicide to prevent mosquitoes from reproducing, and do it extra well by managing the considerable ops work of finding and spraying the water bodies using satellite imaging and an app for the people on the ground. Spraying water bodies with larvicide - is tried and works, unrelated to Zzapp Sources [link] [link]. Theoretical advantages compared to bed nets In every place that malaria was eliminated (which happened many times), larvicide (the treatment of standing water bodies) was the main component. Bed Nets only help people indoors during the night. Many people don't use their bed nets. Mosquitos developed resistance to the bes nets' insecticide in many countries Note I think Givewell already took the problems into account in their analysis, and Arnon emphasizes he thinks bed nets are great, and this is a pitch for using larvicide in urban (and semi urban) areas, not for stopping distributing bed nets. Zzapp think the ideal solution would probably combine many interventions. We are writing this as a comparison with bed nets since EAs already think bed nets are great. Problems in existing larvicide approaches Existing solutions: Problems in theory Coverage is important It's important [how many water bodies you find] and [how many of those you spray], and the difference between 95% and 50% is really big, similarly to the situation when vaccinating 95% or 50% of the population, because of the effect on R (reproduction number) - less infected people will infect less other people, it snowballs but in a good way (hopefully), and the same is true about reproduction of mosquitos. Existing solutions have bad coverage People miss water bodies in the areas they are assigned to search People miss entire areas Even when water bodies are found, the spray team sometimes may still skip them or forget to treat them according to schedule Small RCT Ref to a (tiny) randomized controlled trial run by Zzapp and AngloGold Ashanti Malaria Control (AGAMal), where two groups scanned the same square kilometer, one group used the app and one didn't and the group with the app found 28% more water bodies. Scanning an entire town In a different operation, when scanning an entire town with AGAMal, they found 20x more water bodies when using Zzapp's app. (publication in progress, we'll add a link when it's ready). From that they think that on a larger scale the app has an even greater impact.What happened behind the scenes is that without the app - the scanners skipped entire neighborhoods. Not a problem: Poisoning water bodies The larvicide in the relevant quantities (bti) isn't poisonous to humans, animals, or other insects except for mosquitoes and black flies. Zzapp's advantages compared to “manual” larvicide Zzapp has an app they give to the people “on the ground”: The app follows “where do the people go go” and lets the people mark “I checked this house's garden” and “I found a water source here” and “this house didn't let me in” The control room shows a map with ״Here...

Southern African vultures subject to poisonings, extinction

Vultures have a pretty bad reputation as ugly scavenger birds. But by feeding on animal carcasses, they stop the spread of human diseases such as anthrax, tuberculosis and rabies. And that important role is now at risk. Some vultures, such as the white-backed species, are considered critically endangered in southern Africa; they've been listed on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's red list of endangered species since 2015. Vultures in southern Africa are vulnerable to extinction in large part because they are poisoned. The poisoning occurs for various reasons, including the harvesting of their body parts for use in traditional medicine. They may also be killed by farmers or poachers.  The white-backed vulture of southern Africa faces threat of extinction.  Credit: John Haslam/Wikimedia Commons Last month, more than 150 white-backed vultures died in a week in separate incidents in Botswana and South Africa. The vultures in both incidents appear to have been directly targeted for their body parts, according to conservationists.Linda van den Heever, a vulture specialist with Birdlife South Africa, a nongovernmental organization focused on bird conservation, said that the 100-plus vultures that died in South Africa's Kruger National Park were poisoned.A buffalo carcass was “snared and then laced with a highly toxic poison,” she said, adding that the vultures had “their heads and feet removed and in some instances, even their organs.”Poisoning accounts for 60% of vulture mortalities, according to van den Heever. When farmers poison meat to kill predators like jackals and caracals that prey on their livestock, vultures are sometimes unintended victims. But the intentional poisoning of vultures for their body parts is an age-old practice — one that needs to stop, said Fadzai Matsvimbo of Birdlife Zimbabwe. “There is the belief that vultures can enhance contact with the ancestors, look into the future and predict results,” Matsvimbo said. “One can argue that traditional medicine has long been part of African cosmology because it is not a new phenomenon [but] our populations are not what they used to be in the past. We are a growing population, the birds are in decline, it's no longer sustainable for us to be harvesting animal products for traditional medicine.”Van den Heever said that it's most devastating when poachers poison carcasses to kill the vultures that feed on them. They do this because vultures give away the position of a poached animal to authorities by circling overhead.  “Poachers don't want vultures circling over carcasses, so they will poach a large mammal and lace it with poison and that can kill hundreds of vultures."Vultures can also face an early death when they fly into electrical wires and break their bones. They also get electrocuted when they perch on cables and pylons.  A lappet-faced vulture with a broken wing taken in by Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust is now ready to get released back into the wild. Credit: ish Mafundikwa/The World The long reproduction cycle of the white-backed vulture militates against their increase in numbers. They can live up to 20 years, but it takes about eight weeks for an egg to hatch, four months for the fledgling to leave the nest, and seven years to start laying one egg a year. However, there are some signs the white-backed vulture is determined to stick around. In April 2021, Roger Parry of Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust, drove around a white-backed vulture nest colony that he has monitored for several years. He said there had been a 16% increase in nests compared to the year before. “It is quite positive, but we need to watch it quite closely,” he said. And in South Africa, van den Heever said there has been an increase in the number of Cape vultures over the years. “Species like the Cape vulture were also declining quite steadily in the last couple of decades, but they seem to be stabilizing,” she said. In the absence of a scientific explanation, she speculated that maybe they have adapted well to human encroachment and livestock farming, or unlike the white-backs, they may be less vulnerable to mass-poisoning incidents.These wins are important, but unless mass deaths like those in Botswana and South Africa are stopped, the future of vultures in southern Africa remains precarious. Laws protect vultures in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe, where killing a vulture can land one in jail for up to three years or a more than $2,000 fine.But enforcing these laws can be elusive.

Creating a "party atmosphere in motels" was the method of operation for the woman convicted of sex trafficking. A 44-year-old woman was recently given a prison term of little more than 17 years for sex trafficking minors across Northern California and southern Oregon. After receiving information that a runaway female juvenile from Modesto, California, age 15, was possibly staying at a Motel 6 in Medford, Oregon on May 10, at around 5:13 a.m., police responded to the motel. It was stated that the adolescent went missing on April 29, 2019. The missing girl, along with another female of the same age, Lucious James Roy, and Dawniel Santangelo, both of Stockton, California, were located in the room, according to the police. The inquiry led detectives to believe that Roy and Santangelo conspired to traffic the "lost girl from California to Oregon, furnish her with marijuana, and engage her in prostitution," as police put it. The United States Attorney for the Eastern District of California has stated that there were numerous victims. At trial, evidence revealed that between September 2018 and May 2019, "Santangelo enlisted teenage girls in Northern California and southern Oregon for prostitution. These girls were between the ages of 15 and 17. Santangelo threw parties in motels in Stockton and Salinas and plied the girls with wine and narcotics in order to get them to engage in sexual acts with random men." They say she would put up advertising of the victims online and drive them to truck stops and motels where they would have sexual encounters with males for cash. The Attorney General's Office announced Santangelo's sentence on three charges of child sex trafficking and one count of transferring a minor for the purpose of illegal sexual behavior on Monday, August 29. He was given a total of 17 years and seven months in prison. Philip A. Talbert, the United States Attorney, issued a statement in which he said, "Santangelo's behavior in this instance was appalling. She was crucial in recruiting the girls into the plot by promising them freedom and enjoyment. Soon after she had them in her grasp, she put them to work, exploiting three young children over the course of more than nine months and hundreds of kilometers." Roy pled guilty to conspiracy to participate in sex trafficking of a child and was given a sentence of 17 years and 7 months in prison on April 12, 2021, according to the Attorney's Office. 2 During a custody battle, a woman in Indiana was found guilty of poisoning her ex-oatmeal boyfriend's and then strangling him to death with his favorite tie. A 42-year-old mother was convicted guilty of murdering her child's father last week by poisoning his porridge and strangling him with his favorite necktie. According to the court documents, on Tuesday, August 23rd, Heidi Littlefield was convicted guilty of murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder. On March 25, 2021, Littlefield, her daughter Logan Runyon, and Runyon's boyfriend, Robert James Walker, were all arrested in connection with the killing of Francis Kelly. The 22-year-old Runyon and the 29-year-old Walker were both charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit murder, while the murder case against Runyon was dropped. Carmel Police say that on January 18, 2021, they responded to a death investigation at a residence in the 14000 block of Howe Drive, where they discovered Kelly dead. According to the autopsy results, he was murdered. According to the Indianapolis Star, Kelly was murdered by Littlefield during a heated custody battle for their 2-year-old son. As part of her deal with the prosecution, Runyon testified against her mother at her trial. She admitted to participating in a plot to kill someone and was given a 26-year prison term as a result of her guilty plea. Reports say that Littlefield paid Walker $2,500 to hire a hit man to kill Kelly, but that Walker and Runyon instead spent the money on drugs and other stuff. According to Runyon's testimony, Littlefield instructed her to acquire fentanyl from Ohio drug dealers and then mix it with his oatmeal. The lady apparently also added some to his miso soup. Kelly was allegedly given fentanyl three times. At Kelly's house, Littlefield and Runyon discovered him struggling for breath on January 14th, 2021. According to reports, Littlefield ordered Runyon to break his neck, but the latter was unable to do so due to the man's excessive bulk. In his room, Littlefield allegedly found his victim's favorite tie and used it as a makeshift noose. He was found to have died of strangulation, according to the coroner. WKRC-TV reports that Walker admitted to participating in a murder plot and pled guilty. A 10-year prison term was imposed against him. The court has set Littlefield's sentencing for the month of October. 3 Mom gets 5 years for abandoning baby in hot bath Last Monday, a 35-year-old lady was given a five-year prison sentence for abandoning her newborn daughter in hot water, resulting in severe burns. According to court records from Wichita County, Texas, on August 25 Jessica Brashear was sentenced after pleading guilty to child endangerment. She will serve the remainder of her sentence in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, where she was given credit for 54 days already spent there. The accusation against Brashear states that on June 29, 2017, she "failed to verify the water temperature" before placing her daughter in the bathtub. The indictment claims that Brashear's "failure to thrive" is the result of her "failure to voluntarily deliver the kid to a certified infant care facility provider" after she saw her daughter in the boiling water. The youngster had second-degree burns all over her body, so she was taken to the hospital and then flown to the Parkland Burn Unit, according to KFDX/KJTL-TV. Her buttocks, legs, feet, and ankles made up 17% of her burned body, according to reports. Brashear allegedly stated that she submerged her daughter in hot water after turning on both the hot and cold water taps to the baby tub. She says she pulled her kid out of the pool when she started making noises, but physicians are putting the time at just one or two minutes. KFDX/KJTL state that the girl was 7 months old at the time of the event. As for Brashear's other four kids, they've all been taken away from her. In 2005, she lost custody of her first kid after the father was accused of smearing feces on the infant's face. It has been stated that Brashear's then-boyfriend, who was a meth dealer, caused the removal of a kid born in 2007. The child's health was questioned in 2010 due to rapid weight loss, three years later. And Brashear was found guilty of forgery around the same time. Since she allegedly failed to appear in court in 2012, her fourth kid has been taken from her. 4 A former superintendent in Ohio is being accused of kidnapping four students. Last week, a former school superintendent was arrested after he allegedly kidnapped two kids and offered them money to babysit his 4-year-old son. On August 25, investigators from the Huntington Police Department, SWAT Team, Huntington Violent Crime/Drug Task Force, and the Barboursville Police Department arrested 59-year-old William Morrison III on two charges of kidnapping, as stated in a joint release. Morrison, according to police in Huntington, "lured two children into his vehicle" on August 17. Both Morrison's Huntington home and his Barboursville flat were searched by investigators acting on search warrants. Court filings obtained by WBNS-TV state that Morrison approached a boy and girl, ages 9 and 12, in his black SUV and offered them $20 to watch his child. After putting the kids in the car, Morrison allegedly pretended to check the tire and ordered the boy out. As soon as the child exited the vehicle, Morrison allegedly took off. The youngster reportedly began sobbing and pleading with the driver to get her out of the vehicle. According to the accusation, Morrison doubled his babysitting fee from $100 to $200. According to the documents, which are cited by NBC News, police said, "The male refused the girl's demands to be allowed out of the vehicle, but the girl was able to open a passenger door and flee the vehicle a few streets away." The purported kidnapping did not result in any harm being done to either child. It was reported in 2017 by the Columbus Dispatch that Morrison, the superintendent of the Hamilton Local School District in Columbus, Ohio, was fired after police discovered crack cocaine in his car. In exchange for his guilty plea, Morrison received a sentence of 180 days in jail, with 176 days suspended, for the misdemeanor offense of possession of a counterfeit controlled substance. For the time being, Morrison is a prisoner at the Western Regional Jail. If you like TRUE CRIME TODAY - Be sure to search and subscribe wherever you download podcasts!

Parkinson's disease, is the fastest growing neurological disorder in the world. Over the past 25 years, the number of people with the condition has jumped from 3 million to over 6 million. In addition to impacting millions of lives and livelihoods, Parkinson's is poised to crush our healthcare system and our economy. This, while harmful pesticides and other toxic chemicals that contribute to Parkinson's surround us, disproportionally affecting our farmers, our veterans, and even those in Silicon Valley. The most effective treatment is now a half century old, yet research funding stagnates. In short, we're failing to stop a runaway train. Tune in as we talk with Dr. Ray Dorsey, co-author of the book, Ending Parkinson's: A Prescription for Action, about what needs to be done to stem the tide of rapidly increasing Parkinson's cases.

She spent weeks in the ICU, followed by months in rehabilitation therapy. Amazingly, Payton surpassed everyone's expectations.
