The Home Grower’s Guide for Finding the Ideal Cannabis Grow Tent

So, you’ve decided that you’re ready to start growing your own cannabis. You might think to yourself, “I’ll have some homegrown, trichome-coated buds in no time, right?” Not exactly. The process of growing cannabis isn’t quite as simple as planting a seed, adding some water and periodically providing some light. In fact, it requires a lot of costly supplies, unwavering dedication, and expansive know-how to master the art of cannabis cultivation. If you want to conduct a small, indoor grow operation within the confines of your own home without breaking the bank, a grow tent might be exactly what you need. Home growers utilize grow tents for cannabis cultivation because they provide an easily controllable environment and maximize lighting. While most grow tents are not capable of containing larger-scale grow operations, they’re ideal for hobbyist cannabis growers who are hoping to yield between 1 to 5 ounces (28.35 to 142 grams) each month.   A grow tent has a sturdy exterior fabric that is oftentimes made from nylon or polyester material, similar to the kind you might find on an outdoor camping tent. The interior walls of each tent are equipped refl...

“Save Me”, a brand new song from Italian alternative metallers LACUNA COIL, can be streamed below.

“Save Me”, a brand new song from Italian alternative metallers LACUNA COIL, can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album, “Black Anima”, which will be released on October 11. Singer Cristina Scabbia told HardDrive Radio about “Black Anima”: “It might sound really cliché if we say that it’s gonna be heavier and darker, but this is actually the truth. Because I don’t think that LACUNA COIL has ever been so heavy. And it will be surprising a lot of people, because we experimented a lot of things differently — vocally and musically. “It will be revolving around a book and some other stuff that we can’t talk about. And ‘Black Anima’ is basically translated as ‘black soul,’ ’cause ‘anima’ is an Italian word that we decided to use as the title.” Added co-vocalist Andrea Ferro: “There’s quite a variety of songs, so there’s heaviness, but there’s also some more melodic tracks that can be more catchy. But it’s a very complex record with a lot of different flavors. And we experiment a lot on the lyrics about our...

Scientists Have Figured Out How to Extract Oxygen From Moon Dirt

The Moon is a pretty inhospitable place for humans. It’s all dry and dusty, and there’s no atmosphere for us to breathe. But there is a bunch of oxygen: The lunar regolith – the crumbly top layer of dirt and rubble on the Moon’s surface – is loaded with it. And now scientists have figured out how to get it out. The process also doesn’t produce waste. On the one hand, you get a bunch of oxygen. On the other, a bunch of metal alloys that it was bound up with. Both of these would be really useful on any future lunar bases or colonies. Thanks to regolith samples returned from previous lunar missions, we know that oxygen is really quite abundant up there. Between 40 and 45 percent by weight of the regolith is oxygen – by far the most abundant component by weight. “This oxygen is an extremely valuable resource, but it is chemically bound in the material as oxides in the form of minerals or glass, and is therefore unavailable for immediate use,” said chemist Beth Lomax from the University of Glasgow in Scotland. Those samples are too valuable to experiment on directly, but having them means we can precisely recreate their consistenc...

The Real Reason You Can’t Bring Water Bottles Through Airport Security

Travelers already tired and weary from long spells sitting on planes and standing in gate lines can still muster up enough energy to grumble about restrictive airport security measures. Shoes and belts have to come off. Laptops are slid out from their cases. Unopened bottles of water are tossed in waste bins. For a mode of transportation that can cause dehydration, not allowing water bottles through security is particularly grating. The directive was put in place by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in 2006. TSA agents and passengers are expected to follow the “3-1-1” rule for liquids. Those boarding planes can carry 3.4 ounces of liquid per container in a 1-quart bag, with one bag per passenger. While the rule has lent itself to criticism and ridicule, intelligence agencies believe they had—and continue to have—a very good reason for instituting it. In the new Netflix series Terrorism Close Calls, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officials go on record with details of a number of potentially catastrophic attempts to target civilians that were thwarted by law enforcement. Among those individuals contributing to the show is Steve Hersem, the former deputy d...
