6 TIPS ON HOW TO PASS A DRUG TEST


Most companies now ask for mandatory drug tests for their employees. There are a few ways on how to pass a drug test and get around the cumbersome process.

These methods ensure that the level of toxins in your blood and urine samples is low and untraceable. You don't have to panic each time you think of a drug test because you can always get around the process and be undetected.

1. Use of detox drinks

If you have a drug test coming up very soon in like the next few days and you want to ace the test. The simple way for you to do this is to detox your body and get rid of the protein in your urine samples. Drugs like cocaine and heroin can be easily eliminated from your body after a few days since they are water soluble.

However, marijuana is the hardest drug to get rid of from your body since it is oil soluble and gets attached to your body fat. The use of detox drinks helps breakdown this fat and increase your metabolic rate. The detoxification products work by flushing and removing the THC out of your system and permanently cleanse your blood and urine and remove any trace of the toxins.

2. Keep your body hydrated

Drinking much water is one of the easiest ways to detox and get rid of all the toxins from your blood or urine. Drinking enough water will make your urine diluted and have less of the THC. If you have a drug test that was just imposed on you, drink a lot of one hour before the drug test. This will ensure that you have a higher chance of passing the drug test.

3. Drink lemon juice

Lemons have a high amount of vitamin C and is known to be a great detox product. Experts have not been able to determine why lemons are great in detoxification yet. However, it all comes around to the fact that vitamin C is great electrolyte and also a great way to remover the THC naturally.

Especially the fresh pressed lemons have a higher amount of vitamin C as compared to lemon juice from the supermarket. Always mix one teaspoon of the lemon juice with around 500 ml of water and ensure that you sip frequently.

4. Exercise more frequently

Drug THC is deposited in your body fat no matter your body type and weight. To get rid of these toxins you need to exercise and burn off the fat. Exercises help in increasing your body metabolic rate and allow you to flush out all the toxins in the body. Other websites that teach about passing a drug test talk about exercise here. The best exercises to carry out should involve cardio, weight lifting, running and swimming this will ensure that you burn all the fats in your body and help in speeding up the metabolites.

5. Eat many vegetables and cut out on junk food and red meat

The thought of eating a lot of vegetables scares many people. People always seem to have a rebellious side when it comes to vegetables. However, cutting down on the junk food and the red meat is not only healthy, but it will help you detox. Most of this type of food has a lot of sodium which can cause water retention, are rich in sugars and fat. This causes the THC to remain in the body as they slow down metabolic rate. However, if you try eating a lot of vegetables and fruits especially those rich in iron, they help in detoxification. This makes your body's metabolic rate to increase. Hence a lot of the toxins are eliminated.

6. Drink tea and coffee

Tea is known to be a great detoxifier and helps increase your metabolic rate. For example, the dandelion tea helps the lover to eliminate toxins from your body. Additionally, green tea is known to be a great boost to the levels of antioxidants in your body. Also, green tea leads to an increase in electrolytes, and it contains vitamin C which boosts metabolism and helps burn excess fat. Coffee is known to be a natural diuretic meaning it helps remove excess water from the body. This will help in removing the toxins from your body.

Conclusion

There are a few ways on how to pass a drug test in any company or when applying for a visa. These ways help clean up your body and leave you with fewer toxins in your blood and urine samples.

HUMBLE PIE: LONG LOST VINTAGE LP FINALLY RELEASED!


Classic Rock Icons Humble Pie's Long Lost Vintage Album Joint Effort Finally Sees The Light Of Day!

Los Angeles, CA - In 1974, one of the biggest and best blues-rock bands of all-time, the great Humble Pie, began recording an album at their own home-built studio called Clear Sounds.

The result was a raw and fiery collection of originals and covers that was promptly and unceremoniously shelved by the band’s label, never to see the light of day…that is, until now!

Joint Effort, a title given to the project early on that reflected the collaboration between Humble Pie founders Steve Marriott and Greg Ridley, is a reunion album of sorts in that Marriott had recently walked out of the group.

But a near miss at taking Mick Taylor’s spot in The Rolling Stones plus renewed interest in the band Stateside coaxed Marriott back into the Pie alongside guitarist Dave Clempson and drummer Jerry Shirley.

With never before heard original compositions plus blazing covers of James Brown (“Think”), The Beatles (“Rain”) and soul icon Betty Wright (“Let Me Be Your Lovemaker”), Joint Effort is a must own for any self-respecting Humble Pie fan.

The album comes packaged with full liner notes and rare photos on both CD as well as vinyl in your choice of purple or white! Available everywhere February 8.



Track List:
1. Think
2. This Ol' World
3. Midnight Of My Life
4. Let Me Be Your Lovemaker
5. Rain
6. Snakes & Ladders
7. Good Thing
8. A Minute Of Your Time

SPREE KILLERS CHARLES STARKWEATHER AND CARIL FUGATE


On this day in 1958, Charles Starkweather, a 19-year-old high-school dropout from Lincoln, Nebraska, and his 14-year-old girlfriend, Caril Ann Fugate, kill a Lincoln businessman, his wife and their maid, as part of a murderous crime spree that began a week earlier and would ultimately leave 10 people dead.


The killer couple’s deadly road trip, which generated enormous media attention and a massive manhunt, came to an end the following day when Starkweather and Fugate were arrested near Douglas, Wyoming.



The crimes later inspired a slew of books, movies and music, including Terence Malick’s 1973 film “Badlands,” starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek, and Bruce Springsteen’s 1982 song “Nebraska.”


Growing up, Charles Starkweather (1938-1959) was bullied and did poorly in school. He later idolized James Dean and identified with the actor’s rebellious, outsider image.

Starkweather committed his first murder on December 1,1957, when he robbed a gas station and killed the attendant. Reportedly, an attendant at the station had previously refused Starkweather’s attempt to buy a present for Fugate (1943- ) on credit.


Starkweather turned serial killer on January 21, 1958, when he shot Fugate’s stepfather and mother after arguing with them at their home, and strangled Fugate’s two-and-a-half-year-old sister.

Starkweather and Fugate remained holed up at the scene of the crime for several days, before taking off in Starkweather’s car and murdering three more people–a farmer and two teenagers–on January 27.

On January 28, the couple killed another three people–the Lincoln businessman, his wife and their maid. Starkweather and Fugate’s final victim, a shoe salesman, was killed on January 29; the couple was captured later that day.


Starkweather and Fugate were convicted of murder. He was given the death penalty and died in the electric chair on June 25, 1959. Fugate was sentenced to life in prison but was paroled in 1976. Read More

His 1979 solo album, Exposure was described as “the Sergeant Pepper of avant punk.” He has appeared twice in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Guitarist Of All Time poll, although Fripp claims these are likely to have been mistakes by the typesetter.

BTK KILLER'S DAUGHTER RELEASES HER NEW BOOK JAN 29

The BTK Killer with his daughter

Poor Kerri Rawson has spent a horrible 14 years trying to move on after that shocking morning in February 2005 when an FBI agent showed up at her front door with devastating news. Her father Dennis Rader, was the Bind Torture Kill (BTK), a serial killer.  Her life would never be the same.

Now, Rawson, 40, has written a book — A Serial Killer’s Daughter — that chronicles how her horror and anger were complicated by the love she’d felt for her father, as well as the terrible toll his double-life has taken on her family. (Rawson’s book comes out Jan. 29.)


In 2005, Kerri Rawson heard a knock on the door of her apartment. When she opened it, an FBI agent informed her that her father had been arrested for murdering ten people, including two children.

It was then that she learned her father was the notorious serial killer known as BTK, a name he’d given himself that described the horrific way he committed his crimes: bind, torture, kill. As news of his capture spread, Wichita celebrated the end of a thirty-one-year nightmare.

For Kerri Rawson, another was just beginning. She was plunged into a black hole of horror and disbelief. The same man who had been a loving father, a devoted husband, church president, Boy Scout leader and a public servant had been using their family as a cover for his heinous crimes since before she was born. Everything she had believed about her life had been a lie.



Written with candor and extraordinary courage, A Serial Killer’s Daughter is an unflinching exploration of life with one of America’s most infamous killers and an astonishing tale of personal and spiritual transformation.

For all who suffer from unhealed wounds or the crippling effects of violence, betrayal, and anger, Kerri Rawson’s story offers the hope of reclaiming sanity in the midst of the madness, rebuilding a life in the shadow of death, and learning to forgive the unforgivable.

“No easy answers here. No platitudes. Only raw honesty, written with the gracious authority of one who has glimpsed hell. Kerri Rawson shares her earned wisdom and hope that has been bought with tears and nightmares. This book is a gritty must-read in the library of hope.”

Paul J. Pastor, author of The Face of the Deep and The Listening Day

THE INVENTION OF THE FRISBEE!


On this day in 1957, machines at the Wham-O toy company roll out the first batch of their aerodynamic plastic discs–now known to millions of fans all over the world as Frisbees.

The story of the Frisbee began in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where William Frisbie opened the Frisbie Pie Company in 1871. Students from nearby universities would throw the empty pie tins to each other, yelling “Frisbie!” as they let go.


In 1948, Walter Frederick Morrison and his partner Warren Franscioni invented a plastic version of the disc called the “Flying Saucer” that could fly further and more accurately than the tin pie plates.

After splitting with Franscioni, Morrison made an improved model in 1955 and sold it to the new toy company Wham-O as the “Pluto Platter”–an attempt to cash in on the public craze over space and Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).


In 1958, a year after the toy’s first release, Wham-O–the company behind such top-sellers as the Hula-Hoop, the Super Ball and the Water Wiggle–changed its name to the Frisbee disc, misspelling the name of the historic pie company.

A company designer, Ed Headrick, patented the design for the modern Frisbee in December 1967, adding a band of raised ridges on the disc’s surface–called the Rings–to stabilize flight.


By aggressively marketing Frisbee-playing as a new sport, Wham-O sold over 100 million units of its famous toy by 1977.

Today, at least 60 manufacturers produce the flying discs–generally made out of plastic and measuring roughly 20-25 centimeters (8-10 inches) in diameter with a curved lip. The official Frisbee is owned by Mattel Toy Manufacturers, who bought the toy from Wham-O in 1994.  Read More

    

7 GREATEST ROMANTIC FILMS OF THE 1960s

West Side Story

The 60s were arguably the most beautiful decade in the history of cinema. It was the time of independent cinema, the New Wave in France, the great Italian directors, spaghetti westerns and space odysseys. We’ve put together a small list of romantic movies from the 60s that will take you back to the past to feel the magic of that age.

Let's Make Love, 1960
Jean-Marc Clement, who’s famous for his numerous love affairs and a huge fortune, finds out that he’s about to become an object of ridicule in the new musical. He visits the rehearsal to sort things out, but everyone takes him for a double actor who should play the role of Clement.

In the theater, he meets the charming actress Amanda and continues to pretend to be a poor actor to earn her affection. The intrigue of the film twists around this misunderstanding. Clement tries to win Amanda’s heart with his artistic talents but soon discovers that other actors are much more talented than him. He has no choice but to use his main advantage...

West Side Story, 1961
Accompanied by the luxurious music of Leonard Bernstein, this drama with Shakespearean tones unfolds on the streets of New York in the 50s. Before getting on the big screens, West Side Story had long been known as a Broadway hit, so there’s nothing surprising in the fact that the film version which exactly repeats the stage one is an example of choreographic art. Unlike modern experimental film music, the actors don’t perform songs themselves.

Jules et Jim, 1962
Perhaps the most famous film by Francois Truffaut and, admittedly, the main film of the New Wave. Two friends, Jules and Jim, live in early-XX-century Paris. Jules, who always fails at love affairs, tells his friend that he likes the girl named Catherine.

She, in turn, plays with the feelings of both but hesitates to make a choice: they spend time together, walking and discussing books and art. But World War I separates the friends. Matured heroes meet after the end of the war and ask Catherine to make a decision which, as the tragic finale shows, wasn’t the one both expected.

Fun in Acapulco, 1963
This movie tells us about love adventures of a fun-loving, charming guy in Mexico. Mike Windgren works on a boat in Acapulco, and when the daughter of its owner fires him, the hero is forced to find a new job. Mike becomes a lifeguard and a singer in a local hotel and falls in love with the girl named Marguerita who also works there.

My Fair Lady, 1964
Professor Henry Higgins makes a bet with his friend that he will be able to teach correct speech and high-class manners to the illiterate street flower vendor, Eliza. Making a real lady out of her, the professor doesn’t notice that, over time, he begins to develop feelings for her. The film won four Oscars and became a recognized classic of the genre thanks to not only great music but also the brilliant performance of Audrey Hepburn.

Barefoot in the Park, 1967
Paul and Corie Bratter live in a small apartment in Greenwich Village. Corie thinks their place is cute, while Paul, a conservative lawyer, can’t stand it. Boyer, a classic image of a ladies’ man from France in the eyes of Americans, plays a slightly crazy womanizer, living on the floor above, so he has to pass through their apartment to get into his own.

Romantic Corie likes the old Casanova, and she introduces him to her mother. This results in many comical and touching complications. For instance, Paul refuses to offer his wife to go barefoot to Central Park when it’s cold and raining outside. But love conquers all...

Hello, Dolly!, 1969
It’s another great Hollywood musical based on the eponymous Broadway production. New York. 1890. Matchmaker Dolly Levi goes to Yonkers to find a girlfriend for a lonely millionaire. There, she convinces him, his two clerks, his niece and her fiancé to go with her to New York where she finds a couple for everyone. By the way, if you’re looking for some company too, check out these single Russian women for marriage. Who knows, maybe your story will be no less romantic than these movies.

TONY "THE ANT" SPILOTRO LAS VEGAS HOUSE ON THE MARKET


Gangsters Inc
By David Amoruso

Chicago Outfit mobster Anthony “The Ant” Spilotro continues to fascinate the public. Thanks in large part to Martin Scorsese’s epic movie Casino and Joe Pesci’s portrayal of him, but also due to the gangster’s violent way of doing business. For those interested, you can now live in his former home or anticipate an upcoming film about his life.


Located near Tropicana and McLeod, Tony Spilotro’s 2,400 square foot residence was recently put up for sale and is listed for an asking price of $419,000.


The realtor, Shannon Smith of Realty One, told KSNV News 3 that the place looks pretty much the same as when Spilotro had it constructed in 1974. Read More on Gangsters Inc
