Voopoo Drag Nano Pod Kit | Preview

Voopoo Drag Nano Pod Kit | Preview

voopoo vape has seen great success with the Drag range from the much coveted original Drag to the Drag 2 and Drag Mini. A lot of that success was not only derived from the unique styling of the Drag but the impressive performance of the GENE chip.

The Drag Nano pod brings with it the GENE.POD chip, only previously seen in Voopoo's other pod device the Finic Fish.So what's unique about this chip? Well, Voopoo claims it not only controls the output but has a super fast fire speed with it's ‘Cold Boot Mode.'Rincoe

The Drag Nano pod features an internal 750mAh battery, claimed to last 350 puffs. It has 0.5A charging and can re-charge within one hour.The device keeps the same unique styling of the Drag mods with resin side panels and really does look like a shrunk down version. There's also the ability to attach the included chain necklace to the device and wear it around your neck.

The pods for the Drag Nano slot into the top of the device and are your traditional style and shape.They contain a 1.8ohn coil, have a side-filling plug but only hold a maximum of 1ml of juice.The Drag Nano Pod Kit is currently available in 7 colors - Klein Blue, Tidal, Ceylon Yellow, Fiesta, Ink, Aurora, and Nebulas Blue.There's not too much too excited about here. It just seems Smok are up to their usual marketing antics of re-hashing devices with one new feature.

And I'm not really sure a password-protecting feature is something that people are going to use, I know I wouldn't. But I guess it has its merits from a safety perspective.

Also, the use of antibacterial medical cotton in the new coils sounds a bit suspicious to me. I'm sure it will have no benefit on your vape experience, and I'm sure in time you'll hear others more experienced than me to comment on the that.u2022eney7485yyWEEEEDD

HK$162m Zhang Daqian Painting Leads Sotheby’s Fine Chinese Paintings

May 15, 2019 by venynx  


Zhang Daqian's Manchurian Mountains from 1969, a monumental painting that witnessed the friendship of the artist and an important political figure in Republic China, was sold for a whopping HK$162m (US$20.7m), which is so far the highest price achievement at Hong Kong spring sales this year. The Fine Chinese Paintings sale totalled HK$488m (US$62.17m), more than a double its sum of pre-sale estimate.To get more zhang daqian, you can visit shine news official website.

Measuring a grandeur size of two by one meter, this painting was gifted by the artist to the daughter and son-in-law of the ‘Young Marshal' Zhang Xueliang, a famous military man in Republican China. Zhang Xueliang and Zhang Daqian became friends since the early 1930s and the friendship between their families lasted over half a century.

It was the first time the painting being offered at auction. The auction house chose it to be the cover lot on the sale catalogue and placed an estimate of HK$50m-70m on the painting.The bidding started at HK$38m and was joined by room bidders and telephone bidders who showed great enthusiasm. The price quickly reached the high estimate HK$70m and went beyond. Kevin Ching, Chief Executive Officer, Sotheby's Asia, pushed the price up to HK$92m on behalf of his telephone bidder.

After the price reached HK$100m, only two bidders remaining in the competition - Kevin Ching's telephone bidder and a gentleman sitting in the front. The bidding was escalated into a bidding battle as both contestants were tenacious. The final winner was the gentleman sitting in the front who gained victory with a hammer price of HK$141m. The painting was sold for HK$162m, which is not only the highest price realised at the sale but also the highest throughout the whole Hong Kong spring sales so far.
The artist painted this monumental work in 1969 for Pauline Tao and Pung-fi Tao, the daughter and son-in-law of Zhang Xueliang. The evergreen mountains completed in splashed mineral colours symbolizes lasting prosperity of the family, while the snow-capped summit stands for an auspicious year ahead, representing the most heartfelt wish the artist had for his good friend. The Taos valued this painting greatly and it was hanged in their living room for many years.

Black Folks In D.C. Are Fighting Back Against Gentrification With #Moechella

May 15, 2019 by venynx  


Gentrifiers have been trying to whitewash Black communities all over the country for decades now. However, one store in Washington, D.C., has unwittingly caused an uprising and now residents in the nation's capital are fighting back in the best way ever. The Save Chocolate City Protest took place at the historic northwest Washington intersection of 14th and U streets Tuesday night and reportedly had more than 3,000 people in attendance.To get more go fighting, you can visit shine news official website.
Dubbed Moechella - a name that combined the Coachella music festival with "Moe," a pronoun for a friend exclusively used in D.C. - the gathering invited people to demonstrate against gentrifiers who have been fighting the city's native go-go music. D.C.'s paling population was most recently exemplified by a tone-deaf white man who wondered aloud on live TV why Howard University couldn't just relocate to make room for other people who look like him.

In case you missed it, a Metro PCS store in the historically Black Shaw neighborhood has been playing go-go music without any complaint for nearly a quarter of a century. But that all changed in March when T-Mobile, Metro PCS' parent company, ordered an end to the musical tradition.An online petition to keep the store playing its go-go-music was nearing its goal of 10,000 signatures.

That complaint silenced the music for several days. The hashtag #Don'tMuteDC went viral and there were protests with some local lawmakers joining. Council member Brianne K. Nadeau, who represents Shaw, wrote a letter to T-Mobile's senior vice president for government affairs outlining the city's history and go-go's place in it, the Post said. Mayor Muriel Bowser added her voice to the protest.
Go-go music, typically described as funky percussion-based instrumentation, is many times compared to a junkyard band (in fact, one of the top go-go groups is called Junk Yard Band). Protesters feared that the muting of the speakers outside the mobile phone store was just a first step in a larger attack on their culture.
