Tech Tip: How to convert % solutions to mg/mL

To get the mg/mL, multiply the % by 10.


Examples:

10% solution

10 x 10 = 100 mg/mL


20% solution

20 x 10 = 200 mg/mL


This isn’t the only way to do this, but it’s the way that “clicked” in my brain. Use whatever method you can remember best!

Cleansing...

It’s so easy to forget about a form of cleansing that is so relieving and fulfilling. Phone cleansing!

🌟-Clean off the screen, pop off the case and clean it out. Before you do this, trace a cleansing sigil on the screen with your finger then wipe it off.
🌟-Charge any sigils you keep in the case.
🌟-Pop it on the charger, let it charge to 100%. Additionally, making a cleansing sigil your lock screen for this.
🌟-Upload your photos and delete them. Or go through and delete the ones you don’t like.
🌟-Clean out your contacts. You don’t need that random person’s number anymore.
🌟-Get rid of ALL of those bubble notifications. All of them.
🌟-Rearrange your apps.
🌟-Unfollow/unfriend people on social media who you dislike, their content isn’t your thing anymore, or are downright toxic.
🌟-Change your wallpaper! It’s time for a new background.
🌟-Delete those apps you never use, they’re just wasting space.
🌟-Go through your notes, only keep the things you need.
🌟-Get a new phone case!
🌟-Narrow down your music selection to the things you actually listen to, add a couple new songs.

@computer anon, I've been building PCs for four years now and I always use PC part picker to make sure all the parts fit. It also does price comparisons, and you can customize it any way you see fit. There are plenty of guides online on how to build as well. It's way easier than it looks, trust me :)

Thanks! More great computer-buying and building tips! :D

How we organize our ET tubes now.

I recently read that they should be kept in a drawer or cabinet to lessen contamination, and stole the idea to use empty paper towel tubes cut into sections and labelled with sharpie to keep everything orderly from a Facebook post. (The ones in the FB post were also decorated all pretty, but I don’t have time for that, unfortunately) Much easier than trying to find one on our wall holder, which always seemed to be in a state of chaos no matter how often I tried to straighten it!

Tech Witch Tip

Turn on the flashlight of your cell phone, lay it down flat, and rest a translucent crystal over the light to charge it. If you plan on working with a specific crystal during a spell or ritual you can put this somewhere within your space if you cast circles

To tie in our ET tubes we use old IV lines threaded through the ends of 1cc syringes. They’re much easier to remove than gauze, and we can disinfect them along with the ET tubes for reuse, reducing waste. We store them on this hook so they’re always within easy reach.

Witch Idea/Tip

combine cursing and image editing
i mean how many of us can find an image of a person we want to curse but can’t get and do not have a physical burnable copy?
but we can all use ms paint to draw mean ass sigils over someones pic then delete it and send it out into the void since the trash is just a digital firepit

Design Journal Tips

I made a post about keeping a journal for design purposes and I thought I’d follow up!

Now obviously you can (and should) fill the journal with design ideas and sketches and daily thoughts. But I thought id make a list of a few other ideas that might get you started journaling or create a new avenue for formulating ideas and designs.

1. Number the Pages:

This seems super simple but its super important. First and foremost this will help you break past the journal block of not wanting to tarnish a perfectly new journal. It will also help you keep track of your idea process. For instance if you start an idea and want to come back to it you can list the pages that that idea take place on with each successive entry on that topic. i.e. (idea cont. on page 46)

2. Productivity:

This can either be a daily planner or something a little more simple. Personally I start each morning by writing down a list of things I want to accomplish that day. For instance that might be reading a chapter of a book or playing playing keyboard for an hour. Not necessarily thing I need to get done that day. but things I would like to accomplish. Make sure to check them off as the day goes! 

3. Venue Sketches:

Especially for designers this can be super helpful. Whenever I go to see a show or movie I’ll take that seating time or commercial time to do a sketch of the space. Whether thats the architecture or the speaker/lighting layout or even the set. This gives me a good visualization of how those designers chose to model the space for their purposes. It can be handy to look back at these for inspiration or ideas when you are in the process of designing.

4. Reflections:

This follows up on the previous point. After a show I find it useful to quickly write down my own reflection on the show whether that be on designs or performances or anything. It can help flesh out what you experienced and also help you to better comprehend why certain design choices were made. Its a good stream of consciousness to get you thinking deeper about design and how it can affect you as an audience member. 

5. Research/Idea/Music Lists:

This is just a list I keep at the back of the journal. Essentially anytime I hear about an interesting topic, concept, or even a music recommendation I’ll quickly jot it down to come back to later. I try go back and look at/research one of these things a day to stay on top of the list and keep my mind active on ideas (see #2). 


These are just a few thoughts but feel free to let me know other things you guys do! I’m always interested in seeing how other designers work and how we might be able to build new outlets for ourselves and others!

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm taking my PTCB this week and I wanted to know if you could tell me the math formulas, I'm not sure if I have all of it down or not and I'm nervous ):

OMG, you guys are surprising me with all of the pharmacy asks like omg I’m glad to be an advice article. c: 

oooooh ‘o ’ good luck, Anon !!! 
It’s only a 90 question/2hour test – you can do this and I believe you can! 

Welll it’s bee na while since I’ve had to actually do the formulas on paper but this is what I remember was on my test – 

For DILUTIONS its mainly cross multiplying – there are other ways to find the answer, but cross multiplying is the easiest way for me. 

[x] See this video for reference. just plug in the numbers you need (: 

Also with mixtures use the C1xV1 = C2xV2 equation 
[concentration1xvolume1 = concentration2xvolume2]

For flow rate, your basic equation to use is volume /divided by/ rate = time

Alligations are the tic-tac-toe of math problems, they use alot of percents and usually using a larger bottle/stock than whats called for – 

[x] here is a good video fir reference in how to plug in your numbers. 

Days supply is pretty easy — 
like for example, 

if a person is given a prescription for ferrous sulfate, and must take the medication 4 times a day for 10 days how many pills will be distributed? 

to find the answer simply multiply the maximum doseage for the day times how many days the prescription will last 
4*10=) 40 

and if the question is worded the other way around like, 
Peter is given a prescription for Crestor. He was prescribed 120 pills, and is instructed to take 4 a day. (qid) 
How many days will his prescription last if he is taking his medication as prescribed? 

If 120 is the maximum amount of pills Peter gets, and he takes 4 daily, divide 120 by 4 and you get the days supply of 30 days. 

((: Alot of it is simple math – but some of it is a little bit tougher. 
Just as I tell many people who ask about these things – if you are pretty confident in an answer ; do not second guess yourself. Because most times thats when you mess up.

if you have a strong feeling towards an answer you have then go for it – most likely , it’s right. 

Well Anon I wish you the best with your testing ! 
And I’m sorry if i didn’t seem to be much of help – i would have drawn out some examples myself but im a bit limited as far as my time goes – ive been dealing with alot of family things lol.
But these very videos I linked you helped me to assure that I was doing the right thing – and helped me pass the first time taking the test. 

((: I will be praying for your success ! You can do it !!!!

angeratee  asked:

Hey I saw that you recently passed the PCTB, congrats! I was wondering how you prepared for the exam? I'm not sure where to start. Also, did you use any books or apps? What was the hardest part? Sorry for all the questions, but thanks for your time!

Hey there angeratee ! 
((: Actually I’ve been a tech since mid 2012, but thank you for the congrats!! It still means alot yknow?!

I don’t mind all of the questions because I was someone who asked questions when I was in school - I’m still learning as well ! We never stop learning, so never stop asking questions!!! 

Well first off — I dedicated an entire week to study just about everything that I thought was gonna be on the national exam, even stuff that was almost uncalled for. 

Safer than sorry I thought. 
After dedicating about a whole week to study — I dedicated another week to fun. 
I completely blotted out anything relating to pharmacy out of my head for a week. 
Went to see a movie, hung out with family and a couple of friends at the library. Went to the arcarde — i legit forgot about the test for a whole week ; because lets face it. 
If you’re spending 8 - 16 months in school to be a pharmacy tech and they cram all that info into your brain — why continue to cram and cram ;; youre gonna burn yourself out, yo. and thats no good. 
If you burn out — you’ll end up feeling pooped, exhausted and unable to think. 
you dont need that — so party it up or just have fun the week prior to your test when you schedule it. 
After that, when its 2 days prior to the test i did a quick look over the material, not intense study, just like a quick review. 
And the next day ( day before the test) I didnt think of the test again. 
The key is to keep yourself fresh in the material without over doing it. 
You dont wanna burn out man ! 
So after doing nothing pharmacy related the day before the test, the day of the test I do another brief review before taking it. 
And don’t feel bad, it’s ok to be nervous! 
I was nervous as HELL until I hit the submit button and the computer popped up with a green passed sign lol. 
I used the books I got from school, but mainly I used the internet (ehow was my website that I refereed to alot) 
I like the internet more because there are so many ways to do the same thing — so there was a variety ; not just what a text book told me, yknow? 

I’d say the hardest part is the day of the test, when youre trying to remain calm. 
The best thing to do when you walk in the cubicle room is take a good look at the people around you — and realize they are all there to test as well. They are in the same position as you, so no one is special or anything. 
Theres no need to be distracted by them — and you’re not proving a point to anyone but yourself and the national board of pharmacy. 

No one else cares about your scoring, except you know family and friends — but the people who are there, nah . 
Theres no pressure on you but the pressure you put on yourself. 
So for those 2 hours, dedicate yourself solely to that computer screen 
give it your all and CONCENTRATE.
Read the questions well andm ake sure you understand whats being asked.

the key is to understand — they throw phrases in there to throw you off and keep you sharp. 
You just gotta deduct what information is NEEDED and the rest can go in the trash. 
The hardest part for me, deary was making sure I didnt spend too much time on one question. 
I’m gonna give you one more point of advice for this test. 

If you have an answer, and it is one of the multiple choice answers available to choose — and you feel strong about it. 
Please stick with your first mind and go with your instinct. 
I think I would have gotten a better score if I didnt doubt myself halfway through the test due to anxiety. 

If you feel strong and confident about an answer, keep it and move on. 
B/C odds are, if you sit there and doubt yourself, you will end up changing your right answer to a wrong one. 

((: I wanna thank you for asking me for advice — like its heartwarming to be able to help other pharm techs out! 
If you have any more questions dont hesitate to ask me or anyone else~!!

Good luck and keep me posted on your results alright? 
I’ll be praying for your success!! ((:
