The Hoopla on Hookahs

•April 7, 2011 • Leave a Comment

According to an article posted on, Hookahs are  increasing in popularaity among young Americans, of course we already know this, because we offer a large selection of Hookah flavors for patrons of Kush.  This popularity is most likely a result of Hookah smoke being a lot smoother and less harsh than a cigars and cigarettes.

The article does have testimonial from some critics saying that Hookah smoke is more harmful because of the ability to ingest it so easily.   However, like any type of smoke, moderation is always the key.  Hookahs prove to not be addictive and do not lead to addiction to smoking cigarettes, cigars or whatever else.

The key with Hookah, as well as anything is, enjoy them, in moderation, and responsibly.

Bloomberg’s Movement to Reduce Salt Intake in NYC

•April 28, 2010 • Leave a Comment

From no smoking bans in bars and restaurants to getting rid of allowing trans fat in food and having to have calories posted on the menu boards in fast food places, Bloomberg is at it yet again to keep New Yorkers maintaining healthy lifestyles.  He has started a campaign in “reducing salt in food” and has already committed 16 companies to his plan.  The goal is to reduce the salt intake among Americans by 20% by the year 2014.  Starbucks has already cut most of the salt out of their breakfast sandwiches.

Some speculate that this movement is having the government interfere with how we live our everyday lives.  Does the government hold the right to dictate what goes into our mouths?  Apparently it does when it comes to keeping Americans healthy, but will our precious foods and condiments ever taste the same?  What do you think?

Coming Soon from Apple: iSpecs

Apple could soon be venturing into the world of 3D, after they filed a patent application for electronic spectacles that would show films on the move. The head-mounted gadget would have a slot for an Apple iPhone or iPod. A special ‘smart’ lens in the device, nicknamed iSpecs by gadget fans, would project the images from the screen so they could be viewed comfortably. The lens would be able to split the image into two different frames creating a 3D effect. This could be used to watch blockbusters such as Avatar and Alice in Wonderland ( via @LegitNews).
