The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning of the dangers associated with taking higher than recommended doses of the allergy medication Benadryl after a TikTok “challenge” reportedly saw people hospitalised.

On Thursday, the agency cited reports of teenagers “ending up in emergency rooms or dying after participating in the ‘Benadryl Challenge,’” which reportedly involved people ingesting high doses of the medicine to induce hallucinations.

According to the FDA, participating in the dangerous trend could lead to “serious heart problems, seizures, coma, or even death.”

“We are investigating these reports and conducting a review to determine if additional cases have been reported. We will update the public once we have completed our review or have more information to share,” the FDA said.

The FDA also said it had contacted TikTok and “strongly urged them” to remove the videos

A murder probe has been launched as investigators try to establish how the gun got into the custody suite. Our liveblog has the latest.

Consumers stock up on ‘nesting’ supplies for winter months

After a summer season that saw a run on picnic tables, bikes and pool floats, Americans are facing the prospect of a winter in which Covid-19 is still a threat, social distancing measures remain the norm and indoor gatherings are restricted or banned — all of which have made hot tubs, fire pits and patio heaters literally hot commodities.

Brienne Volpe, an accountant in New Windsor, N.Y., said she hasn’t been able to find patio heaters in stock anywhere.

“The only one that wasn’t on backorder had horrible reviews,” she said. “We’re going to keep looking,” she said, since her two daughters would be able to play outside even when it gets cooler, and she and her husband would be able to socialize in an outdoor and socially distant setting.

“If this goes through the winter, not everybody’s comfortable going inside,” she said. “We actually have a few friends who

How the Global Leader in Diamond Mining Is Taking Care of the World

Back in July, diamond mining behemoth ALROSA launched a new responsible jewelry brand with Brilliant Earth that donates 10 percent of every purchase to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

That same month, Diamonds That Care raised $338,781 by auctioning off pieces designed by Anna Hu at Christie’s. The money raised went to the Brave of Heart Fund, an organization that provides financial and emotional support to the families of health care workers who have lost their lives to COVID-19.

As the world leader in diamond mining, ALROSA is serious about doing good through its work and by its workers.

“We have a long history of dedicated social responsibility,” says Rebecca Foerster, ALROSA’s U.S. president. “We have about 500 community-oriented charity projects every year, more than any other mining company.”

Nashoba At Night Goes Online Amid Pandemic

WESTFORD, MA — Amid pandemic, it seems like everyone has had to make adjustments to how things are done. Nashoba Valley Technical High School’s Nashoba at Night adult-education program has also pivoted. But the refocus comes at a time when some trades are looking for new employees.

Nonfarm payroll employment rose by 1.4 million across the US in August, reflecting the continued resumption of economic activity across the nation since the coronavirus pandemic negatively impacted employment in March and April, according to US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Construction, along with health care and personal care, will account for one-third of all new jobs through 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“We’re focusing on career-enhancing and licensure training programs right now,” Nashoba Tech’s director of Postsecondary & Community Education Jobee O’Sullivan said. “There is a big demand for all of these programs. More people are retiring now than there

Here’s What It Takes For Fashion Brands To Be Sustainable. Can The Industry Be Saved?

It’s time to wake up. On Global Day of Climate Action, VICE Media Group is solely telling stories about our current climate crisis. Click here to meet young climate leaders from around the globe and learn how you can take action. By now, the fashion industry’s harmful effects on the environment are well-known. With natural resources being used faster than they can be renewed, and more clothing produced by brands (and thrown out by consumers) than ever before, the environmental impact of the industry, as it currently operates, is catastrophic. “In the U.S., 11 million tons of textiles go into landfills every year,” says Kristy Caylor, CEO and co-founder of For Days, a zero-waste, organic line of basics. “When these clothes decompose, they release methane which is more harmful than CO2.” With this in

It’s About the Fat, Too

Facial fitness is warming up — and it’s about more than the muscles.

The topic of skin health has expanded over the past few years beyond the epidermis to encompass what lies underneath. Bolstered by an influx of jade rollers, microcurrent devices, facials and procedures, facial muscles have garnered much attention. Now, a beauty industry newcomer is making the case that facial fat is just as fundamental to improving and preserving the overall health of the skin.

Adipeau is a beauty company cofounded by biotech entrepreneur Ivan Galanin, celebrity aesthetician Kristyn Smith and plastic surgeon Dr. Jacob Tower. The company, which derives its name from adipose tissue (aka fat), launched earlier this year with the Fat Balance Activator. Priced at $75, the product is meant to improve the health of facial fat.

The Fat Balance Activator was born out of an experiment by Galanin, who had been battling a years-long

On September 25, Buckingham Palace confirmed that Princess Eugenie is expecting her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank. Due in early 2021, the baby will be a ninth great-grandchild for the Queen. But royals and the super-rich don’t have babies like the rest of us. No, they have a network of doulas and private hospital wings and top potty trainers to help make life as new parents a little more graceful. This is how the super rich have babies.

Twinkly-eyed Gerad Kite has a reputation for making women pregnant. So much so that the London-based esteemed practitioner of Worsley Five Element acupuncture (a method that focuses on balancing energy flows in the body) has a waiting list and charges £350 for an initial consultation (then £225 thereafter).
