Ethyl acetate Ethyl acetate (systematically, ethyl ethanoate, commonly abbreviated EtOAc or EA) is the organic compound with the formula CH3-COO-CH2-CH3. This colorless liquid has a characteristic sweet smell (similar to pear drops) and is used in glues, nail polish removers, decaffeinating tea and coffee, and cigarettes (see list of additives in cigarettes). Ethyl acetate is the ester of ethanol and acetic acid; it is manufactured on a large scale for use as a solvent. The combined annual production in 1985 of Japan, North America, and Europe was about 400,000 tons. In 2004, an estimated 1.3M tons were produced worldwide. Production Ethyl acetate is synthesized in industry mainly via the classic Fischer esterification reaction of ethanol and acetic acid.
Mastering the Practice of EFT and Meditation by Dr. Patricia Carrington Deborah Dineen was a stranger to me when she phoned my office to ask how she could obtain some information about one of our educational products. At that moment I was manning the phones in my assistant’s absence and I felt drawn to talk with Deborah. I could tell that she was a sincere, intelligent and observant woman and with some encouragement she quietly and easily told me about the astonishing experience she has had with EFT.
Acid Treatment Could Provide Breakthrough Stem Cell Technique Scientists have found a surprisingly simple way to turn mature cells back into a primitive state. Simply giving mouse blood cells an acid bath is enough to produce so-called pluripotent cells that can develop into any cell type in the body, they report in two new papers this week. The remarkable transformation contradicts many assumptions about cell biology and may ultimately lead to new ways to treat disease and injuries. Scientists not involved in the work say the technique could be a game-changer if it pans out. "If this new approach is applicable to human cells, it would have great implications for regenerative medicine," says Hongkui Deng, a stem cell researcher at Peking University in Beijing.
Skunk Pharm Research LLC Butane Honey Oil, or BHO, is the essential oil from the cannabis plant, extracted using n-Butane as a solvent. If it is extracted from fresh material, it is a Concrete, and if from cured material, it is an Oleoresin. A concrete or an oleoresin that has been winterized to remove the waxes, lipids, and fats, is known as an Absolute. Free Brain Injury Journey Magazine Living with brain injury can feel like an emotional roller coaster for families, survivors and caregivers. Even clinicians and providers can be challenged by the range of emotions and complex issues that arise over time during treatment, at home and in the community. Issue 5 of Brain Injury Journey features articles on this emotional journey as well as the impact of PTSD, concussion, communication, aging, stroke, and childhood injuries.

The Dawn of the Age of Artificial Intelligence - Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee Reuters The advances we’ve seen in the past few years—cars that drive themselves, useful humanoid robots, speech recognition and synthesis systems, 3D printers, Jeopardy!-champion computers—are not the crowning achievements of the computer era. They’re the warm-up acts. As we move deeper into the second machine age we’ll see more and more such wonders, and they’ll become more and more impressive.
A Treatise on Psychedelics Part 2/3: The Mystical Experience This guest post by Martijn Schirp continues from Part 1, discussing the Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research that he attended. It was originally published on higHExistence.com. If we recognize the plant as an autonomous power which enters in order to put roots and flowers in us, then we distance ourselves by several degrees from the skewed perspective which imagines that spirit (Geist) is the monopoly of human beings and doesn’t exist outside of them. A new world-picture has to follow the planetary leveling; that is the task which the next century will take up. –Ernst Jünger, The Plant as Autonomous Power. Where are the liberating effects of these plants and chemicals to be found?
My Page - TBI SURVIVORS NETWORK The current position on this case; 10 February 2011I have asked my MP Andy Love for help several months ago he has not even bothered to answer my e-mail I went to his surgery and spoke to his secretary and have returned every fortnight and have been fogged off every time I go with excuses like they have not had any reply yet from Costco's. But this matter should be dealt with accordingly by the human rights act. a company had breach the health and safety regulations and injured a woman fractured three vertebrae causing a mild brain injury and lost her job her husband had to close down his business to take care of her. Plight for justice I am here to communicate and try to make people aware of our legal system here in the United Kingdom, since my plight for justice I became aware of the immense amount of people like my self seeking ways of trying to communicate with people trying to make them aware of the corruption within our legal system.

The world we see in the movie Her isn't far off Two weeks ago, I watched the movie Her in preparation for an interview by a Brazilian newspaper. I knew I would find something closer to science fiction than reality, but the movie does have a foundation in reality. It was particularly interesting to see that the future depicted in the movie shows a sincere attempt to reconcile technology evolution with things our eyes and hearts can recognize, like handwritten letters and wooden furniture. I’ve always believed the future of technology lies in making it as transparent as possible so that we can appreciate the human things on top of it. But the interview was very practical and asked me directly how far we are from this reality where computers can interact with us, learn with us, other computers, and ultimately express sentiments and creativity.
Low dose psychedelics increase neurogenesis, help mice unlearn fear A new study of mice published in Experimental Brain Research shows that low doses (but not high doses) of psychedelics increase the rate of neuron creation in the hippocampus, and help the mice to rapidly unlearn conditioned fear responses. From the abstract (paragraph breaks added for readability): Drugs that modulate serotonin (5-HT) synaptic concentrations impact neurogenesis and hippocampal (HPC)-dependent learning. UM researchers awarded $1M to study use of meth to limit brain injury impacts An accidental discovery by a University of Montana researcher may soon lead to the clinical testing of a new drug that limits the impacts of traumatic brain injury and reduces post-traumatic epilepsy in rats. Research professor Dave Poulsen and members of his team in the Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences found that low doses of methamphetamine reduced brain damage in rats after a traumatic brain injury or stroke. The U.S. Army last month awarded Poulsen $1 million to further test the drug. The team will soon learn if the project wins an additional $6 million from the Joint Warfighter Medical Research Program – funding that would place the drug on the fast track toward clinical testing in human patients. “It’s huge,” Poulsen said last week in his office.
