Of the 421 chemicals identified in the plant, 70 are cannabinoids (chemicals found only in the marijuana plant and nowhere else in nature). Cannabinoids are stored in the fat parts of cell membranes for long periods of time and interfere with normal cell functioning. Since the 70 annabinoids are fat-soluble, they build up or accumulate in body tissue. Th

Through the past decades, psychologists have developed different theories to explain the characteristics of human-beings; how we feel, think and behave. Usually, these theories were one directional in the nature / nurture question. Today, a new approach to deal with this question is emerging. This new app

On the road by Jack Kerouac
On the road by Jack Kerouac ˙At first glance, the novel On The Road and the film “The Wall” by Pink Floyd seem to have very little in common. The novel is a story about two young men, Sal and Dean, who travel the country in search of good times. The film is about a man, Pink, trapped in his life of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Upon closer inspection though, one can see that there are many common underlying themes. I will attempt to uncover and explain these themes in the context of this paper.
