Photo provided by the California Product Stewardship CouncilIn response to the nation’s growing opioid crisis, a state agency has partnered with an advocacy group to install 240 free drug take-back bins across the state, including two in California, representatives announced last week.The two Pasadena collection bins are both located at Vons Pharmacy locations, 155 W. California Blvd. and 2355 E. Colorado Blvd., according to the California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC).Both locations can accept both controlled and noncontrolled drugs, according to the organization.Items that cannot be accepted, however, include illegal drugs, needles or medical sharps, iodine-containing medications, radiopharmaceuticals, chemotherapy or cytotoxic medications, thermometers and business medical waste.The project results from a partnership between the CPSC and the California Department of Health Care Services.“The program helps to combat the opioid crisis and reduces the misuse of medications by providing options to the public to safely dispose of their unwanted medicines,” according to a CPSC statement. “The program is designed and administered by CPSC, a leading expert in safe medicine collection, funded through a $3 million grant awarded to CPSC by DHCS.”The bins are meant to be one piece in the fight against opioid addiction, as well as keep the substances out of the environment.“Through this program, Californians all over the state will now have greater access to convenient, safe and environmentally friendly options to dispose of unwanted and potentially harmful medications,” said CPSC Executive Director Doug Kobold.“By expanding public access to these bins at convenient locations, the program will help to combat the statewide opioid crisis and protect water quality,” he added. “Bin hosts have been screened to ensure that the bins are placed in locations with priority given to communities with the greatest need. The medication bins are a win for the health of our California communities and the environment.”A list of drug take-back bin locations, as well as an application to host a collection bin, is available at takebackdrugs.org.

Pin Projekt: Automated drums keep live games business beating

first_img AsianBGE launches live instant win channel with Pin Projekt June 24, 2020 Related Articles Pin Projekt enters South Africa with Hollywoodbets deal May 12, 2020 Submit Why reliability of service is an integral part of TVBET’s strategy August 6, 2020 Share StumbleUpon Share Live games provider Pin Projekt is still up and running despite the COVID-19 outbreak, as its proprietary drum machines can run with or without human intervention.Pin Projekt explained that while live dealers and live draw hostesses retain a key role in the business, it can rely on the automated technology to remain fully operational. Therefore, despite the impact the coronavirus has had on other studio-based gaming providers, live lottery and table games from Pin Projekt have still been streamed to operators including Wwin, PremierBet and 1xBet.The only difference has been a short break for the live dealers, which enabled the company to put in place measures to guarantee a safe working environment for them to return. Pin Projekt told SBC News that the dealers will be back in the Zagreb studio today since Croatia is not yet in lockdown, but that a return to the fully automated service would quickly be restored should their safety be compromised by a quicker spread of the virus.The company said that it took the decision over five years ago to develop every part of the system in-house to make it more resilient in the “most difficult of times” but admitted that it never expected, nor wanted, a world crisis to justify the approach.COO Vedran Katić said: “Live content is a very important niche in gaming and when you develop every part of the system in house it can make it resilient in the most difficult of times. Relying only on your own software and technology proves important not only in normal day to day business but also in times when things are unpredictable, such as today.“The unique combination of betting on live events, in our case, live draws has become a very sought for service. Our clients can always rely on us to offer a betting market including rich video streaming content. This is possible due to our proprietary drum machines which are fully automated and can run with or without the live dealers present. “Although we live in a world in which software appears to be running it, people are still crucial for almost any kind of business but we can also rely solely on our automated technology to keep a continuous operation running.”While online casino and a number other verticals such as virtual sports and esports have been pushed to the forefront of the industry’s response to COVID-19, live casino providers have been struggling to stay operational. Given that an estimated quarter of the world is on lockdown, and many other countries have enforced social distancing measures, this brings obvious challenges to those reliant on human input.CCO Ivan Grković admitted that while online sportsbook or casino operators have often been reluctant to embrace the concept, these companies might now “face the need” to integrate live streamed lottery or table games to offset revenue losses from other verticals.He added: “We have changed the niche of the industry by combining betting and lottery games with our proprietary drums to offer clients more than 2,000 draws every day. Our drums are unique and fully automated, which allows us to offer our product with all features, even when the competition relies on human intervention that can’t be delivered.”last_img read more
