Some musings on a creation of Methyl Vanillyl Ecgonine, thoughts and experiences, after practical use scenarios ensue.

Happening upon such a strangely novel and unexpected transformation of a pound of vanilla beans (Vanilla tahitiensis) in a tincture of perfumer’s alcohol, I’d determined that people find the discovery to be a significant draw, of that they’d like to do the project alone; that is, the creation of the aroma compound methyl vanillyl ecgonidine. A little-known recipe of lore, which I’d happened upon, in perfumery recipes, of a made-from-scratch ethic, is that the spitting-image aroma of crack cocaine resin, in a pipe, can be manufactured directly, and fairly simply - using vanilla beans as the starting ingredient. Difficulty: moderate. Requires vigorous daily (more or less) shaking of a fairly large (1 liter) canning jar filled with 1 lb. of vanilla beans and solvent. Risk of fire, explosion of the canning jar, or ruining of the product (via too much pyrolysis) if the instructions regarding the amount of lye (last step in the recipe) are disregarded. There is a fairly high cost for the ing

Open Call for a Classic American Identity Assignment.

  An adventuresome opportunity for a homesteading act and act(or|ess).  In America, we have various notable cultural figures, of our nation’s founding, whom establish our fundamental values, ignite our imaginations in the stories and folklore of our youth in public schools, and they hold fast, as intrinsic imprints upon our nurturing environment and developing mind. Despite technological advances, these figures hold steadfast in our national traditions - they lived the American Dream to a bold and new extent - flexing our country’s spirit of the freedom to be who we choose to be. We hold these values near to our hearts as formative traits of who we could, or might be.  This persona and lifestyle assignment is for a suitable candidate of upright composure and proper etiquette in personal representation and professional attitudes. A spirit for entrepreneurialism, for the challenge of facing constant failure in observing quick and sustainable gains - for the sake of going against the grai

 I’ve been a man of malleable resolution, over the past few days (as perhaps does happen at times): about the reliability and historical soundness and priory of information provided on Wikipedia, although the site is one of my primary go-to browsing | development platforms upon which reasonably viable data and workflow is provided. I’d been wrought up as a variable and, here and there, contentious figurative enterprise manager; in this instance, I’d come across Supervising Scientist - the job title, as something that I took on, as a novel affiliation. Enterprising, for studying, in depth, a (perhaps) simulated crisis, of a public health contingency, yet, inferentially, quite viable, given the context of that I’m lately coming home to a larger-than-expected garage’s-passing (along-the-way to going inside, to get to my room); the material I became compelled by, that I had on hand, which had gained in importance, for development (into “something;” various things, that it became: for my va

A static nursery of iPadOS | iOS | macOS [audioKit] “iSweep” (app) novel, notable, or amusing audio frequency sweeps [Reviews; Updating].

  iSweep ,  a true gem on the Apple macOS, iOS, and iPadOS platforms (although, sorry; it’s no longer available on the App Store for mobile devices);  is park of Apple Developer site’s AudioKit (my apologies again: I can’t seem to discover the download link, but I do believe I had procured the macOS version, and that it is | was available on the Apple Developer downloads section; available to anyone - although possibly simply hosted on GitHub). The app is a simple interface of just a few parameters of user variables, in terms of a starting frequency, an ending frequency, and a frequency-range sweep timescale of the user’s discretion; ostensibly of the range amassable in CPU bit-rate quantization capability of the device that is being used; at this point in time, speeds up to just over 210,000 Hz, or so, are capably produced on the app, of the Hz ( hertz: cycles per second)  frequency sweep range. All of the user-selectable options are Hz input values. There’s an on/off switch, a “rever

  With major international brinksmanship and warmongering in mind, given recent events pertaining to Russia invading the Ukraine, I’m of a sort that sometimes questions just how much of viable and actionable intelligence that matters: for our own safety, health, and wellbeing - reaches us, as the general civilian population? How much of conjectural and colloquial understandings serve to prepare us, for what would conceivably affect us all, being that these are nuclear global superpowers vying for world stage dominance, sustainability, and superiority? Some questions are better left unexamined, I’d offer, being that these are complex and muddled issues, with many of us, in general, not much of an expert in these foreign relations (or is it just me? I did sleep through my history class, in high school; sorry, teacher [I do remember your name, ha - I’m just being discreet]).  Case in point, to bring folks up to speed, in a quick and efficient manner: think upon the notion of large consume
