strike branding


Today is the #GreatAmericanSmokeout!

Although conservation staff doesn’t get to read every page they work on, this provisions shipment list from World War One on the U.S.S. Pasadena caught our attention. Rolled cigarettes were part of the military’s daily rations from World War 1 until the end of the Vietnam War. This particular WWI shipment contained a staggering 2,801,740 cigarettes from Lucky Strike and Omar brands. But by the 1970s, overwhelming scientific evidence of the health risks of smoking entered the national conversation and the government stopped including tobacco products in soldiers’ rations. Also included on the list were some sweeter treats, like Hershey chocolate bars, evaporated peaches and canned corn.

Many of these oversized records on thin paper were badly damaged, so NARA conservation staff surfaced cleaned, humidified, mended, sleeved and rehoused them in custom boxes to stabilize and protect the records for digitization and safe handling in the future.

Tweaker tip!! Flavored clouds.
So a friend of mine past her knowledge to me and I want to share this simple trick.
The reason for the picture is that inside the filter of those kind of cigarettes you can find a little essence ball, in my country lucky strike is the brand with the most variety of flavors.
You’ll have cut inside your filter to reach for the ball, take it out and put it inside your pipes stem and press it untill it pops, I recomend this BEFORE your dope’s in the bowl, so spread the liquid around the tube and try to cover like an inch from the tip to the bowl so it doesn’t gets hot. This wont affect your dope and flavors like cherry are worth it. Each ball will last depending on how intense you want to taste it.
Share your thoughts, improves or whatever you want to say fellow tweakers.

Formerly branded career criminals, those released over the last two years have returned to crime at a remarkably low rate — partly because they had aged in prison, experts say, and because participation in crime declines steadily after age 25, but also because of the intense practical aid and counseling many have received. And California’s experience with the release of these inmates provides one way forward as the country considers how to reduce incarceration without increasing crime.

“I hope the enduring lesson is that all of these people are not hopeless recidivists,” said Michael Romano, director of the Three Strikes Project at Stanford Law School, which provides legal aid to prisoners and training to public defenders.

“Those who remain dangerous should be kept behind bars,” added Mr. Romano, who was an author of the 2012 revisions. “But there are many people in prison who are no threat to public safety.”
