    POLYPROPYLENE
    November 12, 1999 - Bartlesville, Oklahoma, U.S.A.

    In Bartlesville, Oklahoma, a plaque was placed on the site of the laboratory where the polymer polypropylene was invented, designating it a National Historic Chemical Landmark by the American Chemical Society. The first commercially successful use of the new material was in the Hula Hoop®. In 1951, J. Paul Hogan and Robert L. Banks, research chemists working for Phillips Petroleum Company, discovered the polymer unexpectedly during experiments with catalysts while trying to convert the natural gas components ethylene and propylene into compounds useful for gasoline. Later, they also developed a new catalytic process for making high-density polyethylene. Phillips soon invested in new plastic manufacturing plants.

    PITOT TUBE
    November 12, 1732 - Academy of Sciences, Paris

    Henri Pitot read a paper to the Royal Academy of Sciences in Paris about an instrument he had invented to measure the flow velocity at different depths of water in the River Seine. It had a scale and two open vertical glass tubes on a wood frame. The lower end of one pointed down, the other bent at 90 facing the flow. The belief of the time was that flow velocity at a given depth was proportional to the mass above it, meaning increasing velocity at greater depth. Recording the difference in liquid levels in the two tubes, he showed the opposite was true. Henri Darcy improved the design, with the support of Henri Bazin. Today, the Pitot tube has an important application in aerodynamics for the measurement of the airspeed of aircraft.

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!
