Google unveiled the new tools to correspond with National Recovery Month.data-page-subject=trueA screenshot of the Naloxone Locator Tool. Image: screenshot / google "People come to Google every day to seek information on addiction and recovery," reads the Google press release announcing the new tools."[In] fact, just last month, we saw an all-time high in search interest for 'rehab near me,' 'addiction treatment near me,' and 'how to help an addict.'" This latest effort aims to assist those very people. Now, importantly, because this is Google we're talking about, we would be remiss not to highlight potential privacy concerns associated with the Recover Together site. We reached out to the company with questions regarding how use of the above tools will be tracked, and if any use will be tied to specific Google accounts or used for advertising. Thankfully, Google assured us that visits to this website would not be associated with any specific Google accounts. Page views will be measured, but anonymized and only in the aggregate. What's more, the company claims it will not use Naloxone-related searches to target ads. SEE ALSO: Read more: Mashable

There’s a little salmon run, too, as well as sage grouses, bald eagles, a moose, and a variety of other amazing animals you’ll be able to photograph from a safe distance. Of course, communing with nature doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort and fun—our pop-up park includes an artisanal small bites station, three minibars, coat check, and even a cozy cabin one lucky couple can book for the night—just don’t feed hors d’oeuvres to the animals! Arrive early, because we’re capping the national park at 30 people at a time. You do not want to miss the exclusive national park event of the fall!” At press time, the pop-up national park had been ordered to close after a bear escaped and mauled several pedestrians in the middle of N. Albany Avenue. Was this the inspiration? with starbucks inside The bear killed me.
