12:17 am
a huge no because we see the americans saying that they want to give diplomacy a chance but throughout this whole s 400 process acted very unique symmetrically very unilaterally or do will try to reciprocate and complicate things for the united states in need of bilateral relations and american activity in the region as well start you can also see by us whether the kid sees producing parts for the f. 35 there's american presence injured airdate american president that should it you can read our station but i don't think he will take any very aggressive steps right now especially with the new ministry she coming in and we've already seen the turkish president called for a review of the sanctions where he's hoping that they could be lifted or going forward. for the news in the weeks to come to the program called this one new york

forseeable future club 21 is not alone small businesses have been devastated some estimates say that as many as 50 percent of them could go under soon go with closing secular in this country my business is on hold no on toolbox no go literary openings and i can't even open my studio. because therapeutic massage is so up close and personal i have only come back to about 40 percent of my previous clientele i am afraid that the gov will shut us down again which will be the end of my business i also believe the ruling elite does not care about small businesses. the new york state restaurant association made up of over 6000 operators has many who fear they won't make it through the next 6 months it's carried every one year or every day and we were there some people we had a little bit of business week 2 of these 2 little bit more right we had to bring

and in the 1996 something happened for a company called purdue pharmaceuticals came out with a drug called oxycontin and they started a mere and falsely promoted that opioids were rarely addict maybe only one percent of the could you get addicted to no. that was not true. and it is not true and never was true that was a false statement and the other companies jumped on the bandwagon of making money and the false lies spread and the false marketing spread that they are guilty of was about these tricks they caused this. i believe with every fiber of my being. back in 1906 the 1st promotional at campaign for it was broadcasted we found it.
12:30 am
we doctors were wrong in thinking that opioids can't be used long term they can be and they should be we used to think they'd stop working all the patients would become addicts or they'd be sedated and. these 6 cases show how wrong those views were. in this little film the public was assured with certification that content would show no risk of addiction despite its high concentration in opium to make it believable a real doctor and real patients' bill witness. confirmed that this treatment usually reserved for patients in the terminal phase of cancer can be used without any danger for common pain. i can enjoy every day. really enjoy must say i have been on this new pain medication i have not missed.
