    HOVERCRAFT
    July 25, 1959 - English Channel

    A hovercraft crossed the English Channel for the first time. Having been shipped to France by tender, the world's first all metal hovercraft, SR.N1, crossed the Channel between Calais and Dover in 2 hours 3 minutes on 25th July with Captain Peter Lamb piloting, Mr John Chaplin as navigator and the inventor, Mr. (later Sir) Christopher Cockerell in his own words as 'moveable ballast' on board. It was 50 years to the day that Louis Blériot made the first crossing of the Dover Strait by aeroplane.

    CAROUSEL
    July 25, 1871 - USA

    The first U.S. patent for a carousel was issued to Willhelm Schneider of Davenport, Iowa (117,336). It was described as a two-story "'carrousel' or rotary pavillion used in public parks or other places of amusement." A staircase within the central supporting frame enabled access to the upper story. Radial partitions could provide separate "apartments" with a sofa, imitation horse or other seats. It could be turned by a person or other apparatus. However, it was not very practical or successful. Carousels had been popular for a long time. The earliest* on record was at a fair held at Philippopolis, Turkey on 17 May 1620. The first* on record in England was at the St. Bartholomew Fair in 1729.

    "...Change; we don't like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn't is lying. But here's the truth: Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything...."

Are you one of the numerous smokers looking to quit? Or do you have a close friend or family member struggling with this issue? If so, have you heard of E-Cigarettes?

Electronic Cigarettes or E-Cigarettes work on the concept of nicotine vaporization, instead of combustion. Research has suggested that e-cigarettes can be up to 60% more useful in smoking cessation as compared to nicotine replacement therapies like nicotine patches or gum. Often smokers face terrible withdrawal symptoms due to nicotine addiction and simply fail to quit even after multiple attempts. Vaping not only helps you cope with nicotine addiction, it also mimics the experience of smoking. Thus you experience the feeling of an analog cigarette, and can eventually quit smoking this way.

Very few people can just go ahead and quit cold turkey. You may become moody, anxious, irritated or fail to concentrate on even mundane daily tasks. Being around your social circle and continuously watching people smoke can be very challenging. Not to mention, the time you spent smoking everyday is left blank, like breaks and after meals. These are the times when smokers are highly tempted to go back to smoking. Here, vaping can be your blessing in disguise. So how do you go about it? It can be frightening to make the big switch, so here's an easy guide on how to cut back on, and quit, smoking through Vaping.

Why Vaping: The first thing to do is convince yourself that vaping is better than smoking. The process of vaping doesn't involve burning of tobacco; hence there is no tar, arsenic or other heavy metals involved. Studies have shown that e-cigarette vapor contain 9-450 times lower toxins than cigarette smoke. Since there is no ash or offensive smell, you can be assured of a less unpleasant experience and lesser social stigma. E-cigarettes give you the feel of an actual cigarette so you can easily get into vaping, slowly reduce the amount of smoking and completely replace it eventually.

How E-Cigarettes Work: There are two types of E-Cigarettes available; refillable and disposable. You can get them from convenience stores near you or you can also buy them online. The vaping unit will be made up of a device called atomizer which heats up the e-liquid. It is powered by a battery and it uses a coil for the heating process. You will need to fill in e-liquid as per your use and requirements. Once the e-liquid is heated, the device will release dense and flavorful vapor. Devices To Consider: When you set out to vape, you need to choose between the different types of devices available. Beginners can pick a starter kit, which is easy to use and does not require too much maintenance.

These kits usually include clearomizers/cartomizers/atomizers and batteries along with accessories. Their prices start at around $15 and will go up as per the features. Next you need to select E-Juices according to your taste and preferences. They are available in a variety of flavors ranging from traditional tobacco and menthol to banana bread and cotton candy. A small bottle of e-liquid (15ml) is available for around $9. Once you have got the hang of vaping, you can upgrade your kits and experiment with the different types of devices available. These include larger batteries, bigger tanks for the e-juice etc.

Start Vaping! : For starters, you can get E-Liquid that is nicotine based, say around 15 mg levels. Gradually decrease the levels of nicotine and eventually you can use E-Liquid that is non-nicotine based. This way, you can shake off your addiction to nicotine too, through vaping. When you begin with vaping, you may feel a little uncomfortable or odd with the entire experience. But in the long run, you can surely shake of the smoking habit and replace it with vaping.

It's high time you quit smoking. Make the right choice and be smoke free!
