First, a quick update on my Twitter campaign: as of 8/1/18 I am following 4016 people, and I have 249 followers. That means that since the last reporting date of July 26th, which is less then a week ago, I have more then doubled the number of followers. You can visit my Twitter Project page and see the numbers.
Now on to new business. After deliberate searching, I have decided to run a giveaway on Twitter, to attract more followers. And I plan to use the current trend of Marvel Universe popularity for that purpose. I went through my comic book collection and picked out something that might be interesting for the fans of the upcoming “Venom” movie release. Feast your eyes on Nikki Doyle. The Wild Thing. Hopefully giving away some quality free stuff will bring me more followers. I guess we will see.
How to get more #Twitter followers? – I asked Google. Google said: “Well, it’s a long complicated process, but if you keep putting out good content that people like, and tweet several times a day, and follow a lot of people, and follow people that follow you back, you should do all right.” Hmm. I can do that.
I am now starting my ascend to the internet celebrity status. I have decided to grow my Twitter following to a hundred thousand followers. I understand it’s going to take me some time, but I’m prepared to put in the effort. Did a little research last night, started following some interesting people. Pretty much maxed out my following limit by following like 900 strangers. But I’m already seeing progress. I already got 3 brand new followers since last night. So anyway the numbers as they stand right now are, I am currently following 910 people and I have 23 followers I also have a 161 tweets we’ll see how it goes.
Paper and Paper Products – Why cut down millions of our trees that take 20 years to regrow, if we can get the fiber we need for our paper from industrial cannabis (Hemp), that takes 4 months to regrow?? Hemp is an excellent source of fiber for paper, newsprint, cardboard and packaging, as well as any other kind of specialty paper products.
Textiles – Industrial Textiles like twine, rope, nets, canvas, tarps, carpets, linings and molded parts. Consumer textiles like apparel, diapers, fine fabrics, denim, handbags and shoes.
Building Materials -Hemp hurd is the soft inner core of the hemp stem. It is highly absorbent and rich in cellulose which offers thermal and acoustic insulation. Fiberboard from hemp can be used in building, and furniture making. Hemp hurd can be used as fiberglass substitute and insulation substitute. Hempcrete, or Hemplime is a bio-composite material that is used for construction and insulation. It is easier to work with then traditional mixes, as it is lightweight and acts as an insulator and moisture regulator. It is not as brittle as concrete, and does not need expansion joints. It has been successfully used in France since the early 1990s, to construct non-weight bearing insulating infill walls, as Hempcrete does not have the required strength for constructing foundations, and is instead supported by the frame. It is a low density material, and its resistance to cracking makes it ideal for construction in areas with seismic activity.
Food Source – Hemp seeds are an excellent source of easily digestible protein. Hemp seeds could be used both raw and as oils they produce. The nut of the seed can be used in breads, salads, granola, cereals, hemp milk and dairy products, as well as protein powders. Hemp seeds can also be used as animal and bird feed.
Industrial and Consumer Chemicals – Apart from nutritional values hemp seeds can be used to produce oils which can substitute for fuels, lubricants, inks, varnishes, solvents, coatings, putty, paints and plastics. Consumers will benefit from hemp soap, shampoo, bath gels, creams, lotions, balms and other specialized cosmetics. (and I am not even including the medical marijuana market, this is strictly from the industrial cannabis, the hemp)
Aside from the obvious economic benefits we can derive from Hemp, there are many basic agricultural benefits from planting cannabis. Hemp can improve our air by absorbing large quantities of CO2, and releasing much needed oxygen. Hemp cultivation will help with soil improvement during crop rotation, as well as do wonders for the soils fertility. Deep roots are natural soil aerator and when hemp is grown in the same soil that has been drained of it’s nutrients by other cultures (like wheat and corn), it helps restore the soil balance quicker.
You heard it right, its free. And you know how much I love free stuff. I used to pirate my stuff, but now I find it a lot easier to have a streaming service that has literally anything on a moments notice. The 21st century really broke through the entertainment industry. The availability of on demand content, first to your home cable box, and now to any hand held device that is connected to the internet, really eliminated the need to download and store gigabytes of mp3s. Nowadays, you just click a button, say “OK Google, play me … “, and the music starts. What more do you want? Ohh yeah, you want it for free too. But you can afford internet, what’s another couple of bucks a month. Anyway, I’m not asking you to reach for your wallet right now. Try it for a month, see what you think. If you think it’s worth it, keep it, if not, no harm done. Click on the link below, and if they ask who referred you, say Konstantin sent me. They know me well.
