Vape clock always wrong.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Vaping/comments/knc77f/vape_clock_always_wrong/

The clock on my vape always runs fast and ends up whole minutes ahead of my phone. I've just set it back to the correct time but it was 8 minutes ahead.

How does this happen? I'd understand if it lost time and was a few minutes behind because the batteries were being charged ect… I just don't know how it always ends up being the opposite.

Any one else's mod do this? And why does it happen?

Bridg’D V1.2+ Build stream / Rundown

https://grimmgreen.com/2020/12/22/bridgd-v1-2-build-stream-rundown/

Welcome to another Monday build stream! been DYING to get this BRIDG’D V1.2+ built and vaping. I purchased this from one of my Patrons and could not be more thankful or excited. After having jumped down the billet box rabbit hole, I’ve just wanted to try everything available. Everyone and their brother told me that this is THE bridge to have for your boro tank, so we are going to do a build stream and a rundown for this little guy.

Post stream thoughts and links are down below

Alright so a few hours later and i’m still loving this thing. The airflow is exactly what I expected. It honestly feels almost exactly like the VapeSnail from Atmizoo that I love so much. Flavor on the Bridg’d 1.2 is banging as I would expect. Like I said in the video I have yet to run across a Billet Box Bridge that has bad flavor. It was overall really easy to build and wick. Even with a 2mm coil it’s vaping awesome. Some people have been telling me to try some 3mm coils in there and it’s already on my to-do list. I have a feeling i’m going to have a nice long relationship with this Bridg’d.

Now if you’re going to ask me where or how to buy them? i’ll simply tell you I have no idea. Actually that’s not entirely true. WICK’D does have a website. You will be hard pressed to find these in stock, clicking there now it just says “SOLD OUT”

There are various Facebook billet box groups where people sometimes will buy / sell / trade if you wanted to try to track one down that way. I do have a 2nd one that I can’t decide what to do with. I’m either going to sell it, or give it away on my Patreon. Or hell… I may just keep the damn thing and run two of them all the time!

Be Excellent

NYTS Survey: Youth Vaping Rates Drop Between 2019 and 2020

https://vaping.org/nyts-survey-youth-vaping-rates-drop-between-2019-and-2020/

On September 9, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published results from the 2020 National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS), which indicated that youth vaping declined by one-third from 2019 to 2020.

Published in the September 9, 2020 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, data from the NYTS found that current e-cigarette and vapor product use – defined as using such products on at least one occasion in the 30 days prior to the survey – declined from 27.5 percent of high school students and 10.5 percent middle school students to 19.6 percent and 4.7 percent, respectively. Among middle school students, vaping rates declined by 55 percent.

Regarding frequent and daily use, among high school students, 7.62 percent of students reported using an e-cigarette on 20 or more days and 4.4 percent reported using e-cigarettes every day. Among middle schoolers, less than 1 percent reported using vapor products frequently and/or daily.

Youth reported using flavored e-cigarettes and different types of devices. Among all high school students, 9.4 percent reported using a cartridge-based closed system vapor product, 5 percent reported using a closed system disposable e-cigarette, and only 2 percent reported using an open-system, tank vapor product. Among all middle school students, 1.8 percent reported using a cartridge-based e-cigarette and less than 1 percent reported using tanks and/or disposables. 

This data should be contrasted with results from the 2019 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), which were released by the CDC last month. In 2019, 32.7 percent of high school students reported current use of electronic cigarettes and vapor products. Further, 10.7 percent of high school students reported using e-cigarettes frequently and 7.2 percent reported daily e-cigarette use.

The 2019 YRBS also found that youth combustible cigarette use is at an all time low. Indeed, only 6 percent of high school students reported smoking on at least one day in the 30 days prior to survey. Moreover, only 1.3 and 1.1 percent of high school students reported frequent and daily combustible cigarette use, respectively.

This new data is promising for those hoping to keep vaping products on the market and available for adult smokers. It remains to be seen whether this progress will result in slowdowns of anti-vaping efforts at the local, state, and federal level, but we know that prohibitionist organizations like the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids are not backing down from their quest to ban all flavored tobacco and nicotine products.

As of September 2020, five states have passed laws banning the sale of flavored vapor products. Currently, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island prohibit the sale of flavored e-cigarettes. Massachusetts has banned the sale of all flavored tobacco products – including menthol cigarettes. California is the latest state that has banned flavored tobacco products, with the ban taking effect January 1, 2021, although a ballot initiative drive is underway that would put the ban on hold until voters approve or disapprove in November 2022. As predicted by many, black and gray market sources have replaced much of the legal market.

Many localities have also banned the sale of flavored tobacco and vapor products. On September 9, the Chicago City Council banned the sale of flavored e-cigarettes, after removing a ban on menthol cigarettes. A Phoenix City Councilman has recently voiced their intention to introduce a proposal to ban the sale of all flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes and vapor products.

Policymakers have argued that banning flavors would reduce the appeal of vapor products to youth. Although youth do use flavored e-cigarette products, flavors are far from the number one cited reason as to why youth use such products. Indeed, data from surveys indicate that youth use vapor products due to social reasons and because a friend and/or family member uses such products. Furthermore, repeated surveys have found very high levels of flavor use by adults who have successfully switched to vaping.

It is important for policymakers to understand that while preventing youth e-cigarette use is laudable, policies should not restrict access to adult users of tobacco harm reduction products. Millions of Americans have used e-cigarettes to successfully quit smoking and rely on flavors to remain smoke-free, with youth e-cigarette use decreasing it is disingenuous to prohibit these products from adult consumers.

Another Day, Another Embarrassment: WHO Cites Retracted Anti-Vaping Study

https://vaping.org/another-day-another-embarrassment-who-cites-retracted-anti-vaping-study/

World Health Organization: E-cigarettes

In its quest to mislead health practitioners and policymakers on the relative risk of vaping compared to smoking, the World Health Organization (WHO) is citing a discredited paper that was retracted by its publishing journal.

Earlier this year, a controversial study co-authored by now-retired UCSF Professor Stanton Glantz linking vaping to heart attacks was retracted by the Journal of the American Heart Association. As it turned out, a second analysis of the data revealed that many of the heart attacks actually occurred before the vapers ever began using e-cigarettes.

News of this retraction was covered in numerous publications — from USA Today to Medscape to Reason to VICE — and jumpstarted a movement within the tobacco research community to urge the retraction of other faulty papers that had slipped through the cracks of peer review. However, it appears this news did not reach the inboxes of bureaucrats at the WHO.

In a just-published resource (archive here) on tobacco and coronary heart disease, the WHO cites directly to the retracted Glantz paper to make the claim, “ENDS are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.”

The WHO also cites a second, as-of-yet not retracted paper, on which Glantz was also a co-author. For a thorough debunking of the results of this cross-sectional survey, see longtime anti-smoking advocate Clive Bates’ #6 argument here. In short, the paper suffers from many of the same flaws as the retracted paper, chief among them that it is absurd to even begin to blame vaping for heart attacks that happened before a patient ever started vaping.

Considering the WHO believes it is proper for countries to prohibit the sale of vaping products while leaving combustible cigarettes freely available, no one should be surprised by their willingness to use dodgy and outright fraudulent claims to mislead the public.

It remains to be seen whether the WHO will formally retract, apologize, and rewrite this resource for scientific accuracy. Judging by their past actions, we aren’t holding our breath for anything more than a quiet edit.

The credited authors of this article, none of whom recognized they were relying on a discredited study, are as follows: Ferranda Puig-Cotado, Edouard Tursan d’Espaignet, Simone St Claire, Eduardo Bianco, Lubna Bhatti, Kerstin Schotte, Vinayak Mohan Prasad.
