Price for drug that reverses opioid overdoses soars amid record deaths
Pfizer manufacturing problems leave nonprofits paying exorbitant prices for dwindling supplies of life-saving naloxoneAs the United States faces an unprecedented surge in opioid overdoses, harm reduction groups are seeing shortages in naloxone, a usually affordable and easy-to-use medication that reverses overdoses and has been credited with saving many lives.But it’s not because of a lack of supply; there’s actually plenty of naloxone out there. Instead, the dangerous shortage of naloxone is all about soaring prices. Continue reading...

Ashley Banjo on Black Lives Matter, backlash and reality TV: ‘I’m a sceptic of cancel culture’
There were 30,000 complaints to Ofcom when Banjo and his dance group, Diversity, referenced the death of George Floyd on prime-time TV. Now he has followed up the outcry with a film about racismBy the time he was 30, Ashley Banjo had spent nearly a decade in the public eye. Having pipped Susan Boyle to the Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) title with his dance group Diversity in 2009, he completed seven UK arena tours before transitioning back to television, with a slew of judging gigs on television dance shows, including Dancing on Ice, Got to Dance and Dance Dance Dance.Nothing, however, could have prepared him for the backlash that followed Diversity’s appearance on BGT last September. The performance featured backing dancers in riot gear and the image of a white man standing on Banjo’s neck, a reference to the murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, and the Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests that followed.

‘What’s up, babe?’ How the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wooed Tom Brady
In an extract from his new book, Lars Anderson relates how the Bucs promised that Florida could give the veteran a more enjoyable football lifeOn the first day of the free agent negotiating period – it started at noon on Monday, 16 March –Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht sat in his office at One Buc Place and phoned Brady’s longtime agent Don Yee at precisely fifteen seconds after 12. “I’m calling about Tom,” Licht said.“You made the right call,” Yee told Licht. “You really made a good decision to call me.” Yee went on to explain that Brady had been paying close attention to the Bucs and Arians. He emphasized how much Brady respected Arians – who had written a book in 2017 called The Quarterback Whisperer – and Yee noted that Brady had been impressed with the work Arians had done with quarterbacks through the years. Brady had researched Arians, watching a documentary on him, and he admired how close Arians had been with all of his past quarterbacks. “You’ve got a good nucleus of talent at Tampa,” Yee told Licht, “and it’s important that the head coach, general manager, ownership, and the quarterback have the same commitment to winning.” Continue reading...

Back 4 Blood review – a zombie-shooter tribute act with brains of its own
Xbox, PlayStation 4/5, PC; Turtle Rock/Warner Bros InteractiveDespite a messy start, this spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead becomes more challenging and characterful the longer you spend with itI’m not sure what I expected from Turtle Rock’s spiritual successor to zombie shooter Left 4 Dead, but I know that card-collecting wasn’t on the list. Valve’s 2008 cooperative classic was beautiful in its simplicity, a simplicity Back 4 Blood seems determined to bury beneath a mountain of artifice. Card powers! Loot tiers! Custom character skins! It’s like ordering chips in a trendy burger restaurant and finding your fried potatoes barely visible beneath a pile of jalapeños and pulled pork.Despite a messy first impression, the spice and protein Back 4 Blood heaps atop Left 4 Dead’s framework ultimately pays off. It is an off-brand imitation of Left 4 Dead’s classic action: up to four players band together as ‘Cleaners’, embarking on a four-act campaign to wash a post-apocalyptic world in the blood of awkwardly named zombies, the Ridden. Most missions involve players fighting with guns, bombs, and baseball bats to reach a safe-room, all while the game makes active efforts to thwart you. The action is overseen by an AI ‘Game Director’ that harries players with carefully timed undead hordes and an array of super-zombies, variously able to trap you in a sticky web or spatter your team with Ridden-attracting vomit.
