Samsung Will Unveil The Galaxy S7 In Three Weeks
Samsung loves turning a phone launch into a literal song and dance, and it looks like the launch of “The Next Galaxy” will be more of the same. According to a teaser video just published, Samsung’s next phone(s) will be unveiled February 21 in Barcelona.
The timing and location are designed to overshadow Mobile World Congress, the smartphone trade show that’s held every year in Barcelona. The show starts on February 22, so the idea is for Samsung to get MWC’s biggest launch over before things officially start.
Over The Counter Heroin Antidote Now Available In Australia
Naloxone, a drug that works as an antidote to heroin and other kinds of opioid overdoses is now available over the counter in Australian pharmacies. It is hoped that by making the drug available outside of emergency departments and ambulances it will be administered quicker, preventing overdoses.
Naloxone works by blocking the opioid from working on the brain and nervous system; it reportedly has no effect on anyone without opioids in their system. In the US, it is available in the form of a nasal spray, and is even given free to high schools. The New York Police Department have been carrying antidote kits containing naloxone in both inhaler and syringe form since 2014.
