Doctor ‘feel goods’ still serving the stars

first_img“It’s not easy to say no to a celebrity,” said Michael Levine. “History has taught us whether it’s Anna Nicole, Elvis or John Belushi, they can get what they want. It’s like water.” Monroe died at 36 from an overdose of sleeping pills in August 1962. She had been under a doctor’s care at the time, police said. Presley, who died in 1977 at 42, was known to travel with George Nichopoulos, a former physician who overprescribed drugs to clients, who also included rockabilly singer Jerry Lee Lewis. Members of the medical team who performed Presley’s autopsy acknowledged in 1990 that the singer was addicted to prescription medications and his death may have been hastened by “polypharmacy,” a reaction to mixing many drugs. Nichopoulos lost his medical license but was acquitted of related criminal charges. “Top Gun” producer Don Simpson was found dead of a drug overdose at his Bel-Air estate in January 1996. Traces of 21 drugs were found in his blood, and at least two doctors were investigated for overprescribing medications for Simpson. If a prescription needs to be filled in Hollywood, chances are celebrities can find a doctor to do it. Doctors have a long history of feeding the drug demands of the entertainment industry from Marilyn Monroe to Winona Ryder, Elvis Presley to Courtney Love. Now, California authorities are looking at a physician who reportedly prescribed methadone to Anna Nicole Smith under a fake name. The former Playboy Playmate died Feb. 8 after collapsing at a Florida hotel. The cause is under investigation. The allure of having a star as a patient can sometimes influence whether doctors follow the rules or break the law, one veteran Hollywood publicist says. More recently, celebrities have used fake names to get their vials filled. A 2002 probation report stemming from the shoplifting arrest of actress Winona Ryder showed that she used a half-dozen aliases when she sought prescription drugs. The report said Ryder went “doctor shopping” and had 37 prescriptions filled by 20 doctors over a three-year span. “It’s not uncommon for a high-profile person to get a prescription filled under an alias,” said Ryder’s attorney, Mark Geragos, citing a celebrity’s need for privacy. “It happens with great frequency.” The California Health and Safety Code includes several sections stating that no person who prescribes or dispenses a controlled substance may give a phony name or address or make any false statements on the prescription form. Geragos said the onus is on the doctor. In Ryder’s case, Jules Lusman pleaded no-contest to practicing medicine without a license and grand theft, and was sentenced to five years probation. This past week, California’s medical board opened an inquiry as investigators tried to determine if there was any misconduct by Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, who reportedly prescribed methadone to Smith. The celebrity news Web site TMZ.com said “Michelle Chase” was an alias used by Smith in a pharmacy receipt for a methadone prescription. Methadone is a popular narcotic painkiller that is used as part of drug addiction detoxification and maintenance programs. Methadone overdoses can cause shallow breathing and dangerous changes in heart beat. An attorney for Kapoor, a 1996 graduate of Boston University School of Medicine, said in a statement Friday that his treatment of Smith was “sound and appropriate” and he will cooperate with the state’s medical board. Levine said celebrities turn off their “psychological smoke alarms” and surround themselves with people willing to cater to their needs and who aren’t willing to intervene when problems arise. “We hopefully have friends and family who will step in and help us out when there are problems,” Levine said. “But people who don’t have the smoke alarms will be enveloped by fire at some point.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgA JOURNALIST was one of the main drugs pushers in Letterkenny until she was caught in an undercover Garda sting, a court has heard.Lisa Harnett, whose address was given as James Larkin Court in the town, was caught with a cocktail of drugs.Drugs squad officer Garda Paul Harte said he and his team launched a major investigation in the middle of 2011 based upon surveillance and intelligence work. “She was heavily involved in the sale and supply of drugs in Letterkenny,” said the Garda.On July 22, 2011, as a result of the inquiries, Gardai stopped a car and searched Harnett and carried a follow-up search at a house in Rowan Park in the town.Two bags of amphatimine were hidden under the passenger seat and were later found to be worth €309.The searches also yielded cocaine worth €145 and cannabis worth €97.Garda Harte said a ‘tick list’ with customer orders was also found and that mobile phone had messages relating to the illegal drugs business.“It also had messages which showed she believed she was under surveillance,” said the Garda.“She was cooperative and hasn’t come to our attention since.

Airbus: 10,000 up

first_imgEuropean plane maker Airbus has celebrated its 10,000th delivery with a vow it will take just 10 years to deliver its next 10,000 aircraft.A long and spectacular journey beginning with the Airbus 300B  — the world’s first twin-aisle, twin engine aircraft – hit a major milestone on Friday with the delivery of a  fuel-efficient A350-900 to Singapore Airlines.The world needs more A380s.The European manufacturer’s 10,000th delivery came as production at Airbus is at record levels and its ubiquitous single-aisle A320 is taking off around the world every two seconds.The delivery milestone was celebrated today at a special ceremony in Toulouse attended by Singapore Airlines chief executive Goh Choon Phong and Airbus Group boss Tom Enders.Enders said Airbus’s founders five decades ago could not have foreseen that the company would be delivering its 10,000th aircraft as early as 2016.He said the company was producing at rate of just over half an aircraft a month in the 1970s.Almost 8000 of the 10,000 aircraft delivered had been delivered in the past 15 years and it was less than nine years ago that Airbus had delivered its 5000th aircraft. It took Airbus 19 years to deliver its first thousand aircraft and just 19 months for the last 1000.“There were years, I’m told, where we had more cancellations than new orders,’’ he said. “Today we deliver more than 600 aircraft a year and the ramp-up is continuing.’’Enders said the company now had the widest product line in the industry and its manufacturing footprint extended far beyond Europe to China and the US. “We’ve gone from only 15 per cent market share as recently as 1995 to standard market share of around 50 per cent over the last 10 years or so and there’s not that much more you can wish for in a duopoly.’’The Airbus boss said the manufacturer became faster and more efficient every year and the A350 gave a strong indication of what the next 10,000 aircraft would be.He predicted accelerating technology such as digitalisation would see the next 10,000 aircraft come in many more versions and variations.“I think we’ll continue to be smarter, we will definitely be more productive, we will be safer,’’ he said “The overall ingenuity our people and our many partners from all over the world can dream up will make them more fuel efficient, cleaner, easier to maintain, easier to operate… and able to carry more passengers hopefully in ever more comfort.“And when we develop new aircraft, I’m confident we will be able to design and develop them much faster and with much less cost than is still the case today.’’Goh was picking up the airline’s sixth A350-900 as part of an order that will see it take 67 of the fuel- efficient aircraft, including seven ultra long range planes that will be used on services from Singapore to Los Angeles, New York and an undisclosed third destination. It will be the launch customer for the A350-900ULR when deliveries begin in 2018.The A350 delivered Friday will be used to re-establish long-haul services between Singapore and San Francisco and Goh said it showed how far Airbus had come.“The A350s allow us to have more long haul destinations on a non-stop basis which helps to boost our network competitiveness and our connectivity and helps us further develop our home base, the Singapore hub,’’ he said, noting that customer feedback about the plane so far had been positive.Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Airbus have a long history and shared several milestones, including the first revenue flight of the double -decker A380 superjumbo in 2007.SIA placed its first order with Airbus in 1979 when it opted for the A300B4 and the group  has since operated aircraft from all of Airbus’ product lines – the A300, A310, A320, A330, A340, A350 and A380 families. The latest plane is adorned with  “10,000th Airbus Aircraft” decal  and will be used to launch non-stop flights between Singapore and San Francisco later this month. Singapore Airlines’ first A350-900 went into service in March and the aircraft type is now being used for Amsterdam, Dusseldorf and Johannesburg flights, with more destinations to be added as additional aircraft enter the fleet.Airbus has 810 firm orders for the aircraft from 43 customers, with Singapore’s order the second biggest after Qatar Airways’ 80 planes. Airbus is making two versions of the plane:  the A350-900, designed to carry 325 passengers in a three-class configuration, and the bigger 366- passenger A350-1000, due to have its first flight by the end of the year and enter service in the second half of next year.  Both are powered by Rolls Royce Trent engines: the Trent XWB-84 EP on the -900 and the more powerful Trent XWB-97 on the 1000.Seventy per cent of the A350 airframe is  composite Airbus says the aircraft offers a 25 per cent increase in fuel efficiency as well as significant reductions in noise, with exterior noise levels 21 effective perceived noise decibels below International Civil Aviation Organisation current standards.Airbus currently produces about seven A350s a month but plans to increase the rate to 10 a month in 2018.Steve Creedy travelled to Toulouse courtesy of Singapore Airlines.last_img read more

(Image: SibuMpanza, YouTube)Melissa JavanThere are plenty of YouTubers in South Africa who have made a name for themselves; Sibu Mpanza is one of them. He is the winner of the first Samsung #Socialstar competition, for which he and two other contestants travelled to Mauritius from 12-16 November 2015.Born in Mpumalanga, the 21-year-old, who now lives in Cape Town, started vlogging in 2014. “I stumbled on vloggers while watching music videos on YouTube. After a few days’ binge-watching them I knew I had to star on my own channel.”He started filming himself with a friend’s camera, before getting his own camera for his 20th birthday.Vloggers, or video bloggers, are people who make personal videos and post them online to YouTube. Many people vlog – or document – their lives; others only concentrate on a certain theme for their channel. Mpanza has more than 2,000 subscribers and over 130,000 views on his channel.Brand South Africa launched the ‘Play Your Part and Know Your Constitution, Play Your Part and Live Your Constitution’ campaign.The three-month campaign, which commenced on 1 October 2016, aims to empower people with knowledge and information on their rights as enshrined in the Bill of Rights. This awareness will be integral to the promotion and advancement of South Africa’s constitutional values.The interview with Mpanza was done as part of the ‘Play Your Part and Know Your Constitution, Play Your Part and Live Your Constitution’ campaign.Mpanza speaks about how freedom of expression allows him to talk about social issues that are relevant to him and his peers. He also gives some insight to his life as a vlogger.MJ: You talk about serious issues such as race, class and perceptions. When and why did you decide to talk about social issues in your YouTube videos?SM: It honestly came out of nowhere.

YouTube became a way to vent and bring awareness about these issues.Watch Mpanza talk about why the #StopRacismAtPretoriaGirlsHigh was not just about hair:MJ: Tell us how the Constitution is beneficial to you as a young person.SM: The Constitution, more specifically, the Bill of Rights, plays a role of paramount importance to me. My rights are what keep me safe, they’re what keep me alive, and they have allowed me to have a promising future. That that being said, many South Africans don’t have those rights given to them. It’s beneficial to me, but it should be more inclusive.Watch Mpanza talk about racial issues:MJ: Do vloggers have an impact on people? Why do you think so?SM: I think we do. I think vlogging is incredibly personal. We’re showing you our lives, our personality. Video content tends to be very personal. It makes the viewer feel closer to you.I think we make people laugh, we make people think. We have a way of taking people away from their reality for that brief five minutes while they’re watching our video.Watch Mpanza on his trip to Zambia, where he was a facilitator for a photography workshop:MJ: How often do you collaborate with other vloggers and why?SM: I try to collaborate as often as I can. I have done more collaborations in the last few months than ever before. Collabs bring the YouTube family together. It gives us a sense of community.Collaboration is also a great way of increasing your viewership by sharing subscribers with other YouTubers who make content like yours.Watch Mpanza teach vlogger Suzelle DIY some slang:MJ: Tell us about some of your collaborations.SM: I did one with Ich Bin Siv about being queer at university.

I taught her some new slang words.Watch Mpanza talk to vlogger Ich Bin Siv about perceptions of being gay at school and university:MJ: You have spoken about dating white girls as a black man and also about how black mothers are different. What has collaborating with other vloggers taught you, especially with those with cultures different from your own?SM: Oh no, those are really old videos! I collaborate to learn about others. If I don’t know enough about a certain subject, I’ll either ask someone who does, or bring them in to do the video with me.Watch Mpanza and his friends talk about their mothers:MJ: Talk about your accolades, such as being the first Samsung #SocialStar.SM: I was also the runner up for the Top YouTube channel in Africa in the African Blogger Awards. I was recently nominated for the ‘Most Influential Vlogger’ award at the Student Village Youth Influencer Awards.I am currently on my way to winning the Cell C #BreakTheNet competition, which is looking for the next South African YouTube sensation.Watch Mpanza show Cape Town and small business owners where they can go if they do not have an office:MJ: Would you change if you got a lot of sponsorship or got paid to vlog?SM: I don’t think I would change. I am constantly evolving and moving forward. You can see that in my work. I have already been working with brands and sponsorships. My audience has reacted very well to it. I think they appreciate the fact that brands have seen my worth as a content creator.Watch Mpanza and other YouTubers battle it out in a fun competition:Sources: SocialStar Search and SibuMpanza, YouTube.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
