IV-drip lounges spring up in Tucson as u Tucson
Operating rooms and emergency vehicles are no longer the only places in Tucson to find intravenous hookups. Instead, think of IV lounges with reclining chairs or even a refurbished truck for your next fluid infusion.
Part of a trend followed by Hollywood stars who allegedly spend hundreds per hanging bag, people here are starting to use IV treatments— also known as infusions— for hangovers, to boost athletic performance, or to enhance their teint. So many previous night's cocktails?
The $150 bag is marketed as a way to help the body recover, with a liver "boost" and nausea and pain medicines
In the blazing sun, long walk? Quickly restore the electrolytes. Beauty boost? Get the vitamins and minerals that flow.
In emergency rooms and hospital beds, IVs have long been used to treat malnutrition, or to fight infection or cancer by injecting the treatment right into the blood. It's a way to help a person with severe pain and blood pressure that is dangerously low.
And yet now, as a business venture, IVs are becoming more common. That raises questions as to whether the service offered is worth the squeeze, both on the needle and on the pocket.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — This is a historic Albuquerque site, but it's mostly gone unused for years. Not only is the city trying to change it, in the future of the Albuquerque Rail Yards, Election Day will play a big part. The famous room in the center of town on Saturday had a makeover and a crowd.
"Everyone just wanted to get out there, enjoy the sunshine, enjoy the food trucks, enjoy the music," said Allison Duffus, event attendant. In celebrating the end of the 11-month campaign, Mayor Tim Keller joined other city dignitaries.
"They wanted to show that we can get things done when we have the money and the layout and help for the community," Keller said.
Some of the people who have appeared on Saturday are planning ahead, "I'm really getting married soon, so I was like ' you guys are married, right? ' So I think that's going to be great for that," Duffus said. And that will depend on building around the square, which is not expected to be completed until next summer.
Voters would also assess how much more will occur if they vote to approve a city bond of $128 million. Keller said that $5 million of that bond would go to the Rail Yard for continued improvement, and that would not be a tax increase.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The man charged with killing five members of his family as a teenager was sentenced to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole. In their South Valley home, Nehemiah Griego, now 22, killed his parents and three younger siblings at the age of 15.
The siblings were 9, 5, and 2 when they were killed and shot by Griego. He was sentenced to 30 years behind bars for their deaths – a life sentence in New Mexico. He was also sentenced for killing the parents to seven years behind bars. For time served, Griego may receive credit.
The horrendous case divided the family of the Griego. Others tried to prosecute Nehemiah as a child. While this was fought by his sisters and the government. We wanted him to be locked up. His attorney said he was expected to be put in a treatment facility, but there is no care in New Mexico.
When he can apply for parole, he will be 52-year-old.
MILWAUKEE — Bounce Milwaukee's co-owner, Ryan Clancy, cracked a world record by playing pinball for just over 30 consecutive hours on Saturday.
The challenge was also an attempt to raise money for Children's Wisconsin, formerly known as Wisconsin Children's Hospital, where his son Alex had been treated years ago for kidney failure.
"That was really scary. He'd been sick for around six weeks, and we didn't really point it out," said Clancy. "I thought it would be a great opportunity to raise some funds for that and ensure that other kids had the same great care that Alex used to have."
Clancy stated that the rules are tiring, but nothing like the daily challenges facing Children's Wisconsin's patients. For each hour of unbroken play, Clancy was allowed a five-minute break. The former record was 30 hours and 10 minutes in 2016 for the longest pinball play.
He used to have a crowd just after 3 p.m. to support him and cheer him on ." it was really awesome to see the community support we had on this, "Clancy said.

But earlier this year the officer with his companion chased a car with an Afghan woman as a driver. Her friend didn't have a seat belt. Murphy felt permissiveness and offended her with very rude words, threatened and recorded it on camera.
Even a meeting with the aim to fire him had been prepared, but was cancelled, as the officer didn't work anymore. The Police Commissioner said, this occasion has destroyed Murphy's reputation and authority. He will take decision about the punishment.
