Could a heroin vaccine cure the west’s drug epidemic? | Science | The Guardian
heroin has been described as “a warm blanket on the brain”. Within seconds of the drug entering the bloodstream, it hits receptor molecules in the brain’s neurons that induce a surge of euphoria, followed by a prolonged sense of tranquillity. Yes, it feels good – and that’s the problem. &!

Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation? - The Atlantic
Psychologically, however, they are more vulnerable than Millennials were: Rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. It’s not an exaggeration to describe iGen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades. Much of this deterioration can be traced to their phones. [...] You might expect that teens spend so much time in these new spaces because it makes them happy, but most data suggest that it does not. [...] Teens who spend more time than average on screen activities are more likely to be unhappy, and those who spend more time than average on nonscreen activities are more likely to be happy. There’s not a single exception. All screen activities are linked to less happiness, and all nonscreen activities are linked to more happiness. // &! - Children consuming online time 'like junk food'

"I love making videos more than anything. When you're churning out sheer quantity there's no time to dwell. You just post." @CaseyNeistat
because YT algo demands it to elevate you // "I take it very seriously, I don't mess around. I love every second and my typical edits take 3-6 hours in post production." //&! "I have friends who do daily vlogs that shoot and edit directly from their cell phones. That's amazing!" //&! "I created @bemeapp because I wanted a platform to share video without self-consciousness. It's a way to share honestly." //&! "My office is a sanctuary. It's organized chaos that makes it functional. I'm more productive in my studio than anywhere else" //&! //>> Hollywood and other regular players, off the internet, is no place to take risks.
