Our visit from the “Vape Stars” Dave and Vince of Five Pawns was an experience consistent with all of the myriad of the Five Pawns “Five Star” products’ marketing, and penchant for excellence in e-liquids to which all other companies would be wise to study and assimilate. I will be using newly released Black Flag Risen as my ADV as Five Pawns perpetuates their tradition of bring the finest flavors, finest quality and “safest” e-liquids to the market. It seems that each draw is a new experience from the last, making one anxious to take another hit as each offers a new and improved level of satisfaction. It is my intention to promote the Five Pawn enterprise for their persistent improvement in each new product, reflecting steadfastly my own most fervent dedication to making vaping not only the nemesis of combustible tobacco but also my dedication to the gentrification of the practice of vaping, the only consistently proven substitute for harmful combustion tobacco products (i.e. cigarettes), results substantiated by many scientific investigators like the esteemed Dr. Konstantino Farsolinas and others, including one of the earliest and most esteemed disciples of the safest, most enjoyable product in the vaping industry. You are invited to investigate my blog , as well as my post on the Five Pawns enterprising FB page. Let me impress on you with three of the “wise-tale” anecdotes as:
1. …but FIRST DO NO HARM.
2. It only costs a little more to go “first class.”
3. and… never take your eye off the ball! (conceptual milieus perpetuated by the no 1 ranked Marshall School of Business and entrepreneur department at the University of Southern California, where I received my Masters In Medial Management, “MMM”). Continue reading
Warmest greetings and appreciation for your return to my blog, one dedicated to our mission statement. . “but first, do no harm!” I have had second thoughts as to the chronology of topics I intend to discuss, as I did not begin with the true “basics,” i.e. equipment, e-liquids, battery safety, proper cleansing of your mod, vaping etiquette, types of equipment, sensible use and progression of equipment, an accurate and comprehensive glossary of common terms, etc. But the most pressing issues, those causing the greatest degree of anxiety seem to encompass nicotine, which, by now, all vapers should know. It is a very dangerous drug when used in the wrong hands for the wrong uses and the “gateway status” to other illegal compounds (NOT BEEN DOCUMENTED) which will, as well as all of the other topics aforementioned, be covered in subsequent blog entries. Remember, your feedback is very important to me. Do not be deterred from inquiring about any issues for which you are concerned.
In keeping with continuity, I have chosen to continue informing you of the effects of nicotine (N), the deleterious effects having been almost completely covered in the last blog, but NOT completely. I entered into this business with an altruistic lean, and have every intention of making available the information I would personally like to have myself, in addition to the information our patrons wish to assimilate; that information which overlaps, or expands my knowledge of vaping, so that our patrons are informed consumers. Each and every employee in our store is required to have the basic knowledge to answer the most requested questions asked, but also knows, that it is I to whom the ultimate responsibility of informed consent belongs. I will use the same enumeration format as it obviates the necessity blogging in a uniform, fluent fashion of which would be seen in the form of prose. At the expense of being myopic, I will attempt to make my information relevant, but not in contradiction of other medical facts and concerns. So, as Jim Carrey, the Pet Detective, would say, “Well, alrighty then!”
Peace, Serenity, Hope, Mercy, Forgiveness and Sincerest Gratitude to all of Our Loyal Patrons:
An appreciative welcome to those interested in the opinions of a medical scientist regarding the truth about vaping; the positive and negative characteristics of its physiologic actions and the potential deleterious effects on the animal species, many of which have been studied exhaustively in laboratories all over the world, but have yet to be studied in human models; correlation of results is generally unpredictable but animal models chosen most often show similar effects on the human species. Our FDA is painfully fastidious in their assessment of these results before they will grant human trials. The average time to approval in the human species can often require a minimum of 10 years, however, they now, are “fast-tracking” those products to help the public safely. This entry will be entered in the form of bullet talking points in order to avoid annoying verbiage, a tendency to which I feel I was congenitally blessed. The entries will be clearly identified as appellated AF (confirmed to be scientific experimentation, facts with reliable references) and opinion statements (OS). Most of this entry will be gleaned from an article entitled “Nicotine (PIM)” from Inchem.org, an article with over 100 references from experts the world over. However, I have studied no less than ten books regarding the subject of “vaping,” some written by well-meaning, confirmed ex-smokers who are passionate about the decreased harm that vaping offers in lieu of combustible tobacco products, e.g., cigarettes, cigars, pipes and “dippers.” References will be available upon request: Continue reading
Hippocrates–We kind of look alike, don’t you think?
I swear by Apollo the physician, and Aesculapius, and Health, and All-heal, and all the gods and goddesses, that, according to my ability and judgment, I will keep this Oath and this stipulation—to reckon him who taught me this Art equally dear to me as my parents, to share my substance with him, and relieve his necessities if required; to look upon his offspring in the same footing as my own brothers, and to teach them this Art, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or stipulation; and that by precept, lecture, and every other mode of instruction, I will impart a knowledge of the Art to my own sons, and those of my teachers, and to disciples bound by a stipulation and oath according to the law of medicine, but to none others. I will follow that system of regimen which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and in like manner I will not give to a woman a pessary to produce abortion. With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and practice my Art. I will not cut persons laboring under the stone, but will leave this to be done by men who are practitioners of this work. Into whatever houses I enter, I will go into them for the benefit of the sick, and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption; and, further from the seduction of females or males, of freemen and slaves. Whatever, in Continue reading
INTRODUCTION TO BLOG: Eureka! In the face of great temptation, fueled by procrastination and sloth, today, instead stepping gingerly by the computer, I actually made the left turn and am now at my computer. Truth is, I really love this machinistic juggernaut, and often find it hard to break away from the source of infinite bits of information, so let’s get some work done. Continue reading
