Duncan Garner: Legalising weed could cause teen addiction to skyrocket

first_imgNewsHub 14  November 2019Family First Comment: This study is our warning – public health worsens – by how much we don’t know – so given that we don’t know, why even put the question to Kiwis in a referendum? Why are we even contemplating this change? Stick your “OK boomer” phrase Chloe Swarbrick and start to digest the inconvenient truth – your support for a law change is misguided and irresponsible – your position might even steal someone’s childhood. It’s time to accept the facts and step outside your echo chamber of yes men and sycophants.#saynopetodopeOPINION: It’s official. Legalising weed means more people smoke it, more often and addiction rates go up, starting with kids as young as 12.Be careful what we wish for folks, this is our future staring at us in the face if we are not careful.One of the world’s most respected cannabis researchers has compared half a million people by looking at what happens when an American state legalises weed for recreational use compared to states that don’t.And at every age level in every cohort, every race, creed or LGBT plus any ABCDEFG I’ve left off – where the green herb got the green light – they all got lit alright.Dependency increased, and of real concern 12-17 year olds had the worst results of all the different age groups surveyed.There are more addictions and more people smoking it more frequently – especially men in their 20s.So overall, there are more health issues as a result.READ MORE: https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2019/11/duncan-garner-legalising-weed-could-cause-teen-addiction-to-skyrocket.htmllast_img read more

GFA denies Kwasi Appiah attachment reports

first_imgThe Ghana Football Association (GFA) has denied reports that Black Stars coach Kwasi Appiah will be undergoing an attachment to build his capacity ahead of the World Cup in Brazil.There are media reports that the Ghana FA has secured an attachment in Europe for Appiah to meet world class managers to understudy them and enhance his knowledge due to his inexperience at the world Cup.But Ghana FA spokesperson Ibrahim Sannie Daara on last Saturday’s Sports Link programme on Joy FM vehemently denied the story stating coach Appiah will not undertake any attachment.“Is true that coach Kwasi Appiah will visit some European clubs but it is not an attachment, you said capacity building, I will probably think that is the right word to use,” said Daara“He wants to go and share ideas with top coaches not necessarily to go on attachment, it looks like a student on internship.“He will go there and talk to some of the best coaches on how they prepare their teams and listen to their philosophy for matches and a lot more.”last_img read more

Fantasy Baseball OF Rankings: Top players, sleepers at outfield for 2020

first_img2020 Fantasy Baseball Rankings:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Starter | Reliever | Top 300You’re going to be making a lot of decisions like that with your outfielders. The big power-speed guys will go within the first five or six picks of the draft — and then there are a host of big-time sluggers who will go throughout the next couple rounds — but as soon as guys like Starling Marte and Austin Meadows are nearing the top of your queue, you know you have some decisions to make in regards to balancing out your roster. 2020 Fantasy Baseball Tiers, Draft Strategy:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Starter | RelieverLike the corner infield spots, you’ll always be able to find solid homer upside with outfield, even deep into your draft. Finding the guy who who would hit 37 HRs instead of 25 over a full season is what often separates the top tier from the middling teams, and unfortunately, it’s not easy to do. Luck is certainly involved to some degree, but finding guys with clear(ish) paths to playing time and decent peripheral stats goes a long way. It’s also worth taking some chances at this position with your final starter/bench spots because there will always be worthwhile pickups available throughout the year. Fantasy Baseball Draft Strategies: Auction | Keeper/Dynasty | PointsAs always, the players listed below are ranked as if they’re only eligible at OF. Players eligible at multiple positions may be ranked higher in our overall rankings. 2020 Fantasy Baseball Sleepers:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfielder | Starter | Each teamWe’ll be updating our OF rankings as needed, so check back for the latest player movement. DOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2020 Fantasy Baseball Cheat SheetFantasy Baseball OF RankingsRankings based on 5×5 H2H leagues with Rs, HRs, RBIs, SBs, and batting average as categories Few preseason fantasy baseball tasks are more difficult than putting together OF rankings. Starting pitcher and closer rankings are also tough, but at least we know they’re an exercise in futility even as we’re compiling them. Outfield is different because it feels like a code we can crack (even though we can’t). There are so many players, from all-around studs to one-category sleepers, spread throughout the various tiers, that outfield is really a position that needs its own cheat sheet heading into 2020 drafts. Once you get past the top 20 or so OFs, how you’re building your specific team is really more important than how the players are ranked below. We might think Kyle Schwarber’s overall impact will be slightly higher than Ramon Laureano’s, but if you need some steals and a higher average, Laureano probably makes more sense for you.  Position eligibility based on Yahoo default settings (5 games started or 10 games played at a position)* = not eligible at that position on draft day but expected to play there during the seasonMore 2020 Fantasy Baseball: Auction Values | Mock Draft SimulatorRankingPlayerTeamOther eligibility1Ronald Acuna Jr.Braves2Christian YelichBrewers3Mike TroutAngels4Mookie BettsDodgers5Cody BellingerDodgers1B6Juan SotoNationals7J.D.
