Tripping into the future of medicine

Tripping into the future of medicine
Background It all started back on November 16, 1938, when a swiss-born chemist named Mr Albert Hofmann made what was going to be commonly known as LSD. But he wouldn’t discover its psychedelic properties until mid-1943. He described this hallucination as:

“At home, I lay down and sank into a not unpleasant intoxicated like condition, characterized by an extremely stimulated imagination. In a dreamlike state, with eyes closed (I found the daylight to be unpleasantly glaring), I perceived an uninterrupted stream of fantastic pictures, extraordinary shapes with the intense, kaleidoscopic play of colours.”


-Albert Hofmann


This is what would then lead to an increase in research as many others found that because it reduced the effects of anxiety and then giving some users a relaxing state of mind. Taking off by the 1950’s LSD was then widely used in hospitals and clinics treating patients of psychosis and other mental illnesses. It was so widely recogn…

How can you reduce a lot of your expenses?
You may be clicking on this thinking this is one of those sh*tty clickbait sites that insist on telling you the "best" ways to save money. Well, you're wrong partially... this is quite the "sh*tty" site but I'm not insisting on telling things you already know but things that you don't know.

Can bullying actually be a good thing?

Can bullying actually be a good thing? While being sat in my room pondering about what I should post next, it dawned on me that I haven't posted anything about bullying. Being a blogger who actively seeks to raise awareness to things people ignore that need the attention, I think it's more than ideal for me to write about bullying. I chose this topic because in actuality people don't realise that there is some good in bullying although I don't encourage it, as given the right circumstance it can cause long term problems, all of which I will cover in the rest of the post.

I'm going to start off by saying, I in no way promote bullying especially physical bullying, I'm just here to pose facts and my opinion to you.

What is bullying? Bullying by definition from oxford learners dictionary says "the use of strength or power to frighten or hurt weaker people." To further expand on this the hurt can be emotional or physical and it doesn't always tend to …

Prime Ministers AMA
So as you may or may not know the prime minister has his own twitter account dubbed as '@10DowningStreet'. You can also find '@BorisJohnson' I am lead to believe that every week he hosts a show called PMQ's (prime minister Questions). Where he goes live and has the viewers asking him questions while he tries his best to answer them in hopes that people will see that he's trying to incorporate the peoples' views into Brexit. 
If you missed the Livestream not to worry, as I took note of all the important things that our prime minister has promised to the people! Fishing Waters Boris Johnson has promised that all fishermen out in the UK that the UK will get their fishing waters back. I am lead to believe from UkandEu that the reason fishermen want out of the EU is that they believe they can catch more fish. If you want more information, be sure to check them out as I am not too knowledgeable on this topic.

Should you be looking to buy shares this year?

Should you be looking to buy shares this year? With the US and Iran launching missiles at each other and the UK going through Brexit, the question that arises is that is it the best time to be looking to buy shares in businesses? Should you be looking to spend some of your savings in the large corporations in the hopes that when political insecurities die down that you could make that sweat profit back?
To really understand what time is the best time, we need first answer the question as to what shares are and how they work.



What are shares? Shares represent ownership of a company, 1 share is like a seat. The more seats you have in parliament the more powerful you become, it works the same but in terms of shares. The more shares that you have the more of a say you have in company decisions. Yes, we refer shares to be with the stock market, but for some small business, shares are given in exchange for a sum of money. All these are under laws determined by your state or province. When …
