Why You Should Vape

Across the globe, there are over 200 million medicinal marijuana users and seasoned stoners benefiting from blazing cannabis right now. But the times, they are a-changin’. The 420 worlds as we know it has been shaken to its very core by the arrival of the 710 Era. Many cannabis connoisseurs are choosing to stub out their spliffs and put down their bongs, opting to use a vaporizer instead. And why? Well, there are many reasons, and here they are.

  1. You get the chance to say “I was there at the dawn of a new era in marijuana’s rich history”

Last year it was reported that 10 percent of American adults regularly used a portable vaporizer and almost 70 percent of them admitted to having only started vaping in 2015, click here to see these reports. So if you were to start vaping now, you’d be joining what is essentially just a handful of people, an exclusive club, if you will, who have access to the game-changing pieces of pot-smoking paraphernalia that no-one else seems bothered about right now.

Knowing that you’re one of the first few people to benefit from using vaporizers before they rise in popularity is genuinely exciting. It’s the same feeling you’d get if you were teleported back in time to December 1980 and being asked if you wanted to invest in what was then, a little known company, called Apple.

Starting to vape now will give you the opportunity further down the line, once vaping has become as mainstream as toking on joints, to say two things to those who either scoffed and demonized vaporizing or those who lived under a rock and just didn’t know what vaping actually was. Firstly, you can say “I told you so” when others finally cotton on to how amazing vaping is, and, secondly, with a hint of pride you can say “I did it before it was considered cool”.

  1. Every time you vape, you help improve your local economy

In 2014, $744 billion was spent on vaporizing equipment worldwide. Every time someone needed to replace an eJuice cartridge, buy a new wick, or fancied purchasing a brand new portable marijuana vaporizer, they helped the cannabis industry to flourish. Experts predict that the legal marijuana industry is expected to grow significantly within the next five years, so if you purchase a vaporizer today, you’re helping to create local job opportunities and improve the economy. How very spiffing of you!

“When a slow economy begs for innovation and job creation I see no problem with the legalization of marijuana. If there is big money to be made, as seen with the vaporizer industry, then there is no reason to stifle economic productivity” – Yura Bryant, Entrepreneur Strategist

  1. Vaping is better for your health

Approximately 1.2 million Americans have registered to become members of legal marijuana dispensaries in the last year, and many studies demonstrate just how safe and effective vaporizers are at being delivery systems for administering cannabinoids.

“Vaporizers are safe, effective, medically sound devices for delivering THC and CBD” – Dale H. Gieringer, Ph.D.

A study conducted by NORML and MAPS found that vaporizers can convert around 46 percent of marijuana’s cannabidiols into vapor. Compare this to the 25 percent which you’d get from smoking a doobie, and it’s no wonder why vaping is considered more effective than taking on a joint or taking a rip from a bong.

“Vaporizing cannabis appears to be much safer because of reduced carbon monoxide intake, fewer toxic hydrocarbons, and lower temperatures” – Dr. Mitchell, Emergency Physician and Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver

Another reason why vaporizing is more efficient in regards to medicinal purposes is because you always require lower doses than you would from smoking, munching on edibles, or drinking tea made from cannabis tinctures.

Vaporizers were specifically designed to stop users’ lungs getting clogged up with the carcinogens and tar which occurs when marijuana is lit in a flower bowl, or when it’s combusted in a reefer. Rather than burning their ingredients, vaporizers heat them, and by vaporizing ganja you’re removing approximately 95 percent of its smoke and harmful by-products.

“If I’m going to partake I might as well do so in a manner that doesn’t increase cancer” – Larry, a 26-year-old start-up founder in Atlanta

Switching to a vaporizer can also reverse respiratory symptoms caused by smoking joints or taking hits from a bong, and can increase the yield of anti-inflammatory terpenoids which protect the lungs from irritation.

“People who vaporize report decreased respiratory symptoms compared to those who smoke weed” – Marilyn Huestis, chief of Chemistry and Drug Metabolism at the National Institute on Drug Abuse

  1. Vaping saves you money and your marijuana

Both medicinal users and recreational users reveal that vaping saves them money as they need to purchase less herb or concentrate per week and because vaporizers don’t burn their ingredients, you get the most out of your cannabis because it doesn’t all ash out immediately. Even with the smallest amounts of marijuana, your weed goes a long way because it doesn’t stop giving until it’s completely dehydrated.

  1. The high you get from vaping is fast-acting, flavorful, and potent

Vaping definitely gives you more bang for your buck. When you vape you’re inhaling a smooth, flavorsome mist that oozes with cannabinoids. The highly concentrated amounts of terpenes and flavonoids in the vapor gives you a stronger, tastier flavor from your cannabis, which you don’t get whilst smoking a spliff, and the high levels of THC/CBD hit you like a ton of bricks within seconds.

“Vaporizers get you much more stoned, and in a different way. Smoking tends to have a heavier feeling high, vaping makes you more clearheaded but just as high, more stoned behind the eyes feeling. I love it, plus you barely have to use any weed. I can make .2 of a gram get me more stoned than smoking a joint. Also, inhaling is much more relaxing, not harsh at all. You breathe in larger amounts and hold it in, you can just f*****g feel it wash over you, it’s very nice. No coughing, no ashes, and a vague popcorn-ish smell that doesn’t linger as long as smoke does” – Rose Funeral, Grasscity Forum Member

When you smoke a joint, you take long, slow drags of it. The cannabis smoke has to make its way through a whole lot of tightly packed green and tobacco. If you roll a .5 joint and it takes you 15 puffs to finish it, you’re only getting 0.3333 grams of cannabis per hit. If you have .3 grams in a vaporizer which you finish in 3 hits, you’re getting a .1 gram hit. So yeah, vaporizers give quicker, stronger, and tastier buzzes.

  1. Portable marijuana vaporizers are low key and all vaporizers are low maintenance

Vaporizers are a doddle to clean, unlike a bong, and they don’t give off the telltale smells that a reefer does either, so they’re portable and you can use them virtually anywhere without fear of being sniffed out. You don’t have to carry lighters, baccy, or paper, and you don’t need a source of liquid to make sure the filtration is at its optimum level or an ashtray either.

In the end, the team at Vape.net agree with Isaiah, a 24-year old from Brooklyn who sums up vaping perfectly:

“Getting a new vape is almost as good as getting a new smartphone. Vaping is cleaner, cooler, more modern, healthier, more economical, tastes better, is easier to handle, and you never need matches or a lighter”

So there you have it, all the reasons why you need to vape. Right now. Or at least some point today. Or tomorrow if you’re pressed for time. But this week, definitely.

Hockey- An Underrated Sport that Deserves Better Mention

When it comes to talent, we have it in huge abundance all over the world as there is no dearth to that particular thing and it shouldn’t be ever as now even though we have talent in abundance, only a few fortunate ones are there that are provided a platform to do so.

This happens in every field whether it is entertainment or medicine and many others where one has to prove his or her mettle but one field that is quite neglected is sports aside from the many games that are involved in it where the most popular ones are baseball and soccer in North America and cricket in Asia, Europe and Australia where the latter wins by a huge margin in the popularity race due to divers population in the 3 continents.

Again, as mentioned above, there are certain sports that deserve to be better known but are grossly underrated like hockey where you have 12 players going after the ball on a field that is quite different from the ones you see in baseball and cricket, where certain rules would sound similar to people familiar with the latter two sports.

Definition

Before getting into the discussion, let us take a little while to understand hockey as a sport so that people gain more knowledge about this sport and join the team in making it a global campaign in giving hockey the platform that it truly deserves rather than just a national sport.

This sport is an entertaining one where two different teams are pitted against each other where they have to maneuver the ball amongst their team players and score the goal by hitting in the opponent team’s goalpost.

Although field hockey has been immensely popular in US, Canada, Eastern Europe and Australia, it has been mostly seen as casual sport without any scope for its players in the long run but that isn’t the case, which is why this article is necessary to open many eyes.

Hockey is believed to have originated in the late 18th century with the first match being played around 1773 and lasted for 3 days or so what history tells us but now we are in 2020 that has brought a huge difference with social media platforms inspiring new aspirants into taking it up as their career.

Goal Scoring

There are many beginners in this field right from the early days and they aren’t interested in knowing how long are hockey games but the nuances of scoring goals in a fitting manner.

The best way is to keep your eyes on the ball without losing focus on the opponent team’s players and keep them at arm’s length so that they don’t get too close to the ball.

Never stray too far away from the crease and remain within the boundaries so that the players get confused in knowing about the next plan of action and become temporarily sidetracked.

While aiming, make sure that there is no player nearby and simply pass the ball to your teammate so that he can do the honors.

Fiat 500S Twinair Cabrio Review Fiats Cheeky 500 Cabrio Gets Sporty

It’s hard to believe that the Fiat 500 cabrio arrived on our streets back in 2009. In that time it’s won many fans with its blend of chic retro looks, cheeky charm and everyday usability.

In keeping with the sporty badge, this new ‘S’ model gets 16 inch alloys, body coloured spoiler and side skirts. The theme continues inside the cabin, courtesy of an Abarth flat-bottomed steering wheel, bolstered sports seats with embroidered logos and red gear knob.

Otherwise its usual 500 fair: key focal points being the large main dial, which means a comfortable driving position and ergonomic dashboard, with all controls being within easy reach – including the dash-mounted gearlever, which is perfectly placed for quick gear changes. Performance from the 0.9-litre two cylinder TwinAir engine is lively (0-62mph acceleration in 11 seconds, and 108mph top speed.) And it has low CO2 emissions of just 95g/km, along with 68.9mpg combined fuel economy (official figures). Indeed, this little turbocharged motor seems to suit the 500’s cheeky personality perfectly, with its intriguing offbeat thrum, capable of brightening up the dullest journey. The engine’s generous amounts of available torque means you don’t have to change gear nearly as frequently as you might expect… and when you do it’s certainly no chore, as the 5 speed box is slick and precise to use. A long top gear also enables it to settle down to an easy cruise on the motorway. Bigger wheels and firmer suspension also make the ‘S’ feel more focused on a twisty B-road. It’s a good compromise, as although firm, it never feels ‘crashy’ or brittle.

For a small car refinement levels are good at lower speeds, although there’s a fair bit of wind noise at higher motorway speeds. At the flick of a switch (up to speeds of 37mph) the 500S Convertible goes from city car to drop-top… well, almost – the fabric roof folds back the length of the whole cabin – but just like 1950s original, the roof pillars remain in place. This retains the car’s structural rigidity, without the need for additional body strengthening and roll-over protection. Consequently, the 500 Convertible only weighs 40kg more than the hatch.

Wind-in-the-hair motoring pleasure does however come at the cost of some practicality and rear vision. On the subject of practicality – naturally a car like this isn’t going to win awards for space, but there’s enough leg and headroom up front for six footers and the sports seats are comfortable and supportive, even for taller drivers. Things in the back are more cramped, but despite the convertible having a smaller boot aperture, the rear seats still fold to reveal a 520 litre load area.

As with all Fiat 500 models, a high level of safety equipment comes as standard on the 500 S, including ABS and Electronic Brake Force Distribution, seven airbags (including a driver’s side knee bag), ISOFIX attachments and daytime running lights. ESP (stability control system) featuring a hill hold function, is also available. Furthermore, it also comes with great accessories and internal designs. The seat cover of the car is elegant looking just like the one that you can find here: https://redlinetribe.com/best-leather-seat-covers-for-cars/

Verdict:

This new ‘S’ trim adds a welcome sporty element and bridges the gap nicely between other models in the 500 range and the less compromising Abarth performance models. All 500s have a sense of fun and desirability and this is further heighted in convertible guise, which offers accessible and fuss-free open-top motoring – albeit for a premium over the hatchback.

Electricity Child Safety – What To Look For The Child Safety?

Children are precious gifts and parents seek whole heartedly to protect them. Many parents go to great lengths to ‘child-proof’ their homes. Installing locking mechanisms on cabinets and doors, making sure hazardous materials are inaccessible to children, fencing off stairs, putting protective coverings over sharp corners are all wonderful steps to promote the safety of your child. However these steps neglect perhaps the most important aspect of child safety in the home, and that issue is electricity.

Your local electricians believe that customer service extends beyond solving electrical emergencies or providing expert electrical services; it includes ensuring that electricity is a safe convenience for the whole family. As community members and parents we are passionate about educating parents on how to best protect their families in regards to electricity. Sadly about seven children each day have to receive emergency room care because of electrical accidents. We would like to be involved in reducing that number drastically, and prevent tragedy in your family. Here are some helpful hints about how to help make your home a safer environment for children.

Inserting foreign objects into electrical receptacles is perhaps the most common form of electrical accidents in regards to children. This safety issue is easily prevented by using Socket Safety Guards (plastic plugs inserted into outlet receptacles) or by installing new Tamper-Resistant Outlets (TRO). These outlets have been proven to significantly reduce the number of children involved in electrical accidents. For searching in the local area, a search can be made electrician near me. All the weaknesses and strengths are made available to the people to hire the best one. The use of the tools and techniques is there which reduces the risk for the children. Proper safety measure are taken to get success. 

Water and electricity are a dangerous mixture. Water is a very good conductor of electrical current, thus kitchens and bathrooms are areas of the greatest concern when making your house child-safe. The best way to prevent injury in these rooms is to be proactive and alert when using water and electricity in close proximity. It is common to bathe infants in sinks and water tubs on counters in the kitchen or bathroom, it is also common to use things like hair dryers, electric razors, or hair clippers around sinks. Thus we highly recommend installing Ground Fault Interrupter Circuits Outlets (GFICs) around sinks, tubs, and any other areas that are likely to involve water or moisture. In addition to installing GFICs other good practices in kitchens and bathrooms include: avoiding touching appliances with wet hands, unplugging all appliances when not in use, keeping electrical appliances out of reach of tubs, and avoiding electrical use in bathrooms when possible.

Education is a powerful tool against electrical accidents. Teach any older children to never insert any object other than an electrical plug or safety guard into outlets, never to touch an appliance with wet hands, and never to unplug and appliance by jerking or pulling on the cord, but only to disconnect an appliance from a power source by pulling directly on the plug.

Parents who succeed in performing these recommended practices will succeed in making their household a safe and fun environment for children of all ages. But home safety does not end with electrical safety.

Install new smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and check them regularly. Recent research has shown that 19 out of 20 kids are likely to sleep through a regular smoke alarm thus new talking smoke alarms, or smoke alarms in or extremely close to a child’s bedroom are advised.

All stoves should have ‘child-proof’ knobs and a oven door that can be locked.

Seventy-five percent of all home drowning victims are under the age of four, thus parent supervision during all baths and swimming (even in kiddie pools) is a must.

When it comes to marriage, there is a saying that always works; be quick to listen and slow to speak. 

 Giving your precious marriage time to flourish requires an altruistic attitude which can be difficult, but are very fulfilling. When the decision is made by two people to get married, both individuals must come to the realization that what you sow or give to that marriage, you will reap or get out of it. Nowadays, most people spend a great deal of time on their diet, hair style, etc. and somehow forget that the very vital thing in your existence, your marriage, needs to be worked on and valued just as much. 

 If a person is completely unaware of the strong and weak points of their marriage, they will be totally surprised by the transitions that occur and unfortunately, not see them coming before they arrive.

Every stage of marriage is a very interesting yet confusing all at the same time; with one moment you believe youve married the most perfect person in the world, and the next wondering what you should throw at him ” the pan or flower vase.

 Where people involved in marriage have to be careful, is that in the midst of a heated argument you dont spout all kinds of threats and accusations. A marriage is full of so many turning points that anyone that is married has to be extremely cautious not to say things that you will be sorry for later on such as: I want a divorce, I hate your mother, I wish you were dead and so many other creative words that somehow find themselves into your marriage. When two people are married it is important to remember that you are on the same team, you are not opponents.

Intuit QuickBooks Jingle Generator

One of the easiest ways to check the accuracy of your bookkeeping is to do a bank reconciliation. This simply means comparing the items that show up on your bank statement against the transactions that appear in your QuickBooks account register. Any differences should be investigated and corrected, if necessary. Some bank statements are better than others too, I’m not sure what the best bank is but ideally they would list all of the checks in a separate group, then list the debit card transactions all together, the deposits all together, etc. It also really helps if they include images of the checks (some banks even return the actual canceled checks although that is becoming more and more rare.)

Bank reconciliations used to be difficult and confusing when we had to do them on paper, but doing them in QuickBooks is super easy. You’ll see everything in the QuickBooks training video below, but all you have to do is type in the statement ending date, the statement ending balance and then click on each item that you see on the bank statement. It’s literally that easy!

But there are still people who struggle with it each and every month and they always need help getting their accounts reconciled. If you’re struggling with your bank reconciliation it usually means that you haven’t done a good job recording transactions in the first place. You want to do everything you can to make your transactions in QuickBooks mirror how they are going to show up on the bank statement. If you keep that goal in mind, everything will work out to be much cleaner and more accurate.

Some of the things that often lead to troublesome bank reconciliations are:

  • improper use of undeposited funds (or not using it at all)
  • data entry errors (recording transactions for the wrong amount or entering the wrong date)
  • merchant account fees being deducted from each sale
  • messing with (or even deleting!) transactions that have already been reconciled in the past

Each of these topics will eventually be covered in their own QuickBooks training video, since there’s a lot to say about each one. Some SME accounting service Singapore also use Quickbooks and other reliable accounting software. So make sure to choose the right service provider for your business so you can achieve cost efficiency. Also, hiring outsourced accounting service is less costly than hiring your own accountant.

5 Ways To Prevent Holiday Weight Gain – Understand Them!!

If you’re like most people, the holiday season means big family dinners, your favorite desserts, and holiday parties with snacks and egg nog. If you’re in the process of trying to lose weight or even just adopt a healthier lifestyle, the holidays can be a real test of willpower. The average American gains at least 1 pound between Thanksgiving and Christmas, with overweight people gaining an average of 5 additional pounds. Below I’ve put together a few tips to help you keep this from happening to you.

Keep Your Exercise Routine Going

 For me this is the most difficult part of the holiday season. With all the family events and holiday parties, it’s very tempting to skip out on my normal workout routine. I think the best advice to follow here is to always do something, even if you don’t have the time or energy for your full routine. Obviously there will be some exceptions, if you’re celebrating Christmas Day with your kids, it’s reasonable to skip out on going to the gym that day. On all those other busy days though, commit to at least doing some part of your routine. Maybe you have a holiday party after work and you don’t have much time for exercise, you can at least commit to 15 or 20 minutes of exercise. If you skip a few days, it becomes a lot more difficult to start again than if you just cut back a little. How to reduce the weight gained in the vacation? For the gathering of the benefits of the booster, the checking of full review here will deliver the best results. In the beginning,  it can be difficult but before using it complete information should be available. 

Commit to Reasonable Portions

 In my family, like many others, the Thanksgiving and Christmas meals have become yearly feasts where everyone brings a dish. It seems like I eat multiple plates of food just trying to try a little bit of everything. Clearly this can be a problem for those of us trying to eat healthy, and its can be hard to stay committed when there’s so many delicious choices in front of you. For me, the best strategy has been to decide beforehand how much I’m going to eat. There’s nothing wrong with eating a little more than a normal meal, but if you decide on an amount before the food is all in front of you you’re more likely to choose a reasonable portion. When you’re inevitably offered more once you’ve finished, there are polite ways of saying no, like lightheartedly saying “I couldn’t eat another bite.”

Don’t Starve Yourself Before Big Meals

 This one may seem obvious, but many people have made this a habit and make holiday meals an even bigger meal than they would’ve been. On the day of a big family meal, eat a normal, healthy breakfast, and depending on the time of dinner, eat a normal lunch. This way you’re not so hungry when the big meal comes and you’re less likely to over indulge. For knowing the correct information, a person pay visit for testosterone booster reviews and rankings to purchase within the funds available. The consumption of the meals and food is restricted to reduce the weight and excessive fat from the body, 

Keep Party Snacking to a Minimum

 We’ve all been to work or social holiday parties where cookies, brownies, chips, and other snacks are widely available. Everyone socializes with a small plate in their hand eating through most of the party. These high-calorie snacks can add up fast though, so one thing you can do is to not stand close to the serving table. Again, the key here is to keep it reasonable, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a couple cookies, but avoid snacking throughout the party. Get your snack and drink and then move to another part of the room to focus on socializing, after all that’s why you came to the party. If you aren’t standing within a couple feet of the snack table you’re less likely to keep eating the whole time you’re there.

Create a Physical Reminder

 Creating a physical reminder of your commitment can go a long way towards keeping you on task. This can be as simple as a post-it note or a note on the fridge reminding you of your goal, whether that is a target weight or simply staying healthy through the season. My wife and I chose custom t shirts for this purpose; we had them printed out with a picture of a skinny Santa and text that reads “Staying healthy through the holidays!” It’s a little hokey, I know, but we wear them when we go to the gym and it has been a big morale booster to remind us of our goal.

How’s Your Social Post Timing? – Know the best time for uploading posts!!

How often do you post content to social media platforms? If you do not post daily or multiple times every

day, how do you decide when to post your content? Are you deliberative about the days on which you post? What is the basis for your choice of days for posting to the various sites? In other words, how’s your social post timing?

Some companies can readily explain every detail about the days on which they post to specific social media platforms, and the hour of the day. Others are less analytical or less specific. Which are you? Are you aware that studies have been conducted and attempt to map the ideal days and times for posts to each social platform?

Data for niche social media platforms might be published to a narrower audience, but studies of the top platforms (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pintarest) are relatively easy to find. The challenge is to find a single study that analyzes posts, engagement, click through rate, and sharing of content posted. Socialbakers undertakes some studies of this kind. Last year, they published findings of a notable study of Twitter posts. With the buying of the likes and followers, the importance of the purchase needs to be clear with the people. Why Buy Followers? The purchasing of the followers will improve the social media experience of the marketers. The purchasing of the real followers will convert into loyal customers. 

It seems there are better (and worse) times to post on Facebook, according to a study from Socialbakers this week. The data is based on an analysis of almost 2.9 million Facebook posts from 23,000 brand pages over a 2-month period. 

Socialbakers first looked at the 4,000 most engaging posts from the analyzed sample. Then, to calculate Monday’s engagement rate potential, for example, they calculated the number of those top posts that were created on a Monday and then divided that number by the total number of posts published on Mondays. They repeated that calculation for each day of the week, and then made the resulting percentages relative to each other. (In so doing, they controlled for the variances in number of posts created on each day of the week.)

The study indicates that content posted on Mondays is 7.1% more likely to rank among the top posts for the week. The worst days to post are Saturdays, Sundays, and Thursdays. It is interesting to note, however, that a Twitter study by Socialbakers found the highest engagement levels with content posted to Twitter on the weekends.

Until recently, many marketers believed the business community and the general public were less receptive to social media posts or emails on weekends, Mondays, and Fridays. This might be a factor in the increased number of items posted on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The volume of posts on Fridays diverges sharply from the earlier analysis

Why is engagement so much higher on Monday? There are several possibilities:

  • A significantly smaller number of items are posted on Monday
  • People post their most engaging content on Mondays and their least engaging content on weekends
  • People are fresher and more likely to engage on Mondays after two days off for the weekend

Why is the second-highest engagement level reported on Fridays?

  • A correlation with the number of weekly summaries published on Fridays
  • A significantly smaller number of items are posted on Friday
  • People have their work finished and can afford to devote time to engagement

What is your explanation of the data? What is your experience with the engagement rate on content you publish on each day of the week? Does it support the findings in this study? How will you use the data? Will you plan future posts based on these findings? Please use the comments box below. We are eager to hear from you.
