How does CBD help depression?

 

Sorry, Sacramento Bee. I was a paid subscriber for over 20 years. You then covered my pages with auto-play ads with audio. There was no chance to opt out of that nonsense that totally disrupted my work and that you gave me no ability to get out of. No more SacBee links until times change.

Interfaith groups to counter anti-Sharia rally in South Bay
sfgate.com
In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 2001, Sabiha Basrai felt her Muslim identity was a political statement and that her Americanness was in question. After years of being on the defensive and months of listening to President Trump’s plans for a travel ban on mostly-Muslim countries, fueling more mistrust of the Muslim American community, Basrai said she’s had enough. “For a lot of us in the Bay Area, who grew up here, there’s been this feeling like we have to prove ourselves, prove our humanity, prove the fact that our values are just like yours, that we deserve civil rights just like you,” said Basrai, a member of the Alliance of South Asians Taking Action. Basrai said that like most Americans she watched in horror from her home as hijacked planes slammed into the World Trade towers in New York City, the Pentagon and crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pa. ACT For America was founded in 2007 by Brigitte Gabriel in response to the 9/11 attacks and works to push anti-Muslim legislation, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups in America. Since its founding, the group has grown to over 280,000 members and 1,000 chapters nationwide, according law center. The group was first designated as a hate group by the SPLC in 2015, making it part of a network of the “most of the dangerous groups propagandizing out there,” said Heidi Beirich, the director of Intelligence Project, part of the SPLC that tracks hate groups. [...] we stand steadfast with the right of every American to their beliefs. The organization’s “March Against Sharia” is being billed as a call for human rights for women and children who are impacted by Sharia law in the United States, according to the group’s website.

PG&E to pay $1.6 million to settle suit over Carmel blast
sfgate.com
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. will pay $1.6 million to the city of Carmel to settle a lawsuit over a natural gas explosion that destroyed a vacant cottage in 2014, officials said Friday. The settlement, which the City Council approved Tuesday, covers the cost of repairs and the time that police officers, firefighters and public works employees devoted to dealing with the explosion’s aftermath. The incident led California’s Public Utilities Commission to fine the company $37.3 million last year — the third-largest gas-related fine against the utility, after the $1.6 billion that PG&E had to pay for the 2010 blast in San Bruno that killed eight people and a $38 million fine for a 2008 explosion in Rancho Cordova (Sacramento County) that killed a homeowner. No one was inside the one-bedroom cottage on Guadalupe Street and Third Avenue in Carmel when it blew up on the morning of March 3, 2014, sending glass, wood, and roof chunks into the surrounding area. In doing so, workers made slices in the steel line, rendering it useless for carrying natural gas. The gas escaped through a cut in the steel pipe and eventually got into the cottage, where a pilot light is believed to have touched off the explosion. Tomasi said the legal settlement requires PG&E to do preventative maintenance of gas pipelines, conduct regular systemwide inspections, and provide transmission and distribution maps to city employees.
