The cannabis that is available for research studies in the United States is grown at the University of Mississippi and solely controlled by the NIDA, which has veto power over the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to define accepted protocols. Since 1942, when cannabis was removed from the U.S. Pharmacopoeia (United States Pharmacopoeia) and its medical use was prohibited, there have been no legal (under federal law) privately funded cannabis production projects. This has resulted in a limited amount of research being done and possibly in NIDA producing cannabis which has been alleged to be of very low potency and inferior quality. ''Lyle E. Craker, Ph. D. v.

In what the Food and Drug Administration (w:Food and Drug Administration) is characterizing as one of the largest recalls in recent history, numerous types of products containing peanuts (w:Peanut) are being recalled in the United States. The FDA issued a recall on Wednesday on food items with peanut paste and other peanut products made after January 1, 2007 at a Peanut Corp. of America (PCA) center in Blakely, Georgia (w:Blakely, Georgia). The recall affects over 430 products containing peanut paste or peanut butter from the PCA plant.

quotations on the internet or several major newspapers before exchanging money. Prices Paraguay has been recently ranked by several research studies as the cheapest country in the world, measured through Purchasing Power Parity. Prices in Paraguay are very low and a budget traveller will be able to get by on as little as USD7-14 a day and even less if camping. A clean, single hotel room out of Asunción should not cost more than USD10 Tipping Service charges are included with the bill, and tipping is uncommon. Eat thumb Sopa Paraguaya (File:Sopa Paraguaya.jpg) thumb Chipa (File:Chipa Paraguay.jpg) Paraguayan food is one of the most diverse in South America. Paraguayans usually enjoy typical food several times a week all year round. You'll find much of the standard South American cuisine here with some Brazilian influence as well. Paraguayan food isn't particularly spicy, so those who can't tolerate spices won't have problems here. Paraguay has a tradition for beef which is normally good quality and cheap. Grilled meat (asado) is the thing to eat. Pasta is also popular as are the street stalls selling panchos (hot-dogs), hamburgers, empanadas and similar fast-food. Vegetables, salad and other types of meat are not that common but available. In restaurants you normally get manioc as a side dish for free (similar to bread in other countries). Local specialties You must try the Paraguayan traditional food, which includes dishes like the following: * '''Chipa-a''' bread baked in an outdoor oven or "tatacua", usually made out of mandioca (manioc) flour. Mandioca is often substituted for potatoes. Mandioca, or Mandi´o in Guarani is similar to a potato, and is normally eaten boiled but can be fried. It is eaten almost everyday by Paraguayans, and many have it growing on their land. * '''Mbeju''' is a mandioca starch and Paraguayan cheese based flatbread. * '''Pastel madi'o''' is a manioc pastry stuffed with "So'o ku'í" or minced meat. * '''Sopa Paraguaya''' is a form of corn bread are two of the most well known. Sopa means soup, so it is an unusual experience to be actually eating a solid soup, probably the only one in the world. * Tortillas in Paraguay are different than in other places in Latin America. It is more like a fried dough (made with Paraguayan cheese). * '''Payagua mascada''' (Guarani for chewing gum for dogs but has nothing to do with that) is a tortilla also made with manioc and beef (high in proteins and calories). * Try '''Sopa So'o''' if you get the chance--it is Paraguayan cornbread with bits of pieces of meat often marinated with garlic and lime. * '''Pira caldo''' is a soup consisting of catfish, tomatoes, fat and spices * '''Asado''' (BBQ) is great, and prices are quite reasonable - PYG20,000 Guaranis (USD4) will get you an all-you-can-eat buffet at many nice places. PYG5,000 is enough to pay for a hamburger. * Also highly popular are '''empanadas''' (meat egg stuffed in a pastry and baked) and ''milanesa'' (breaded and fried chicken beef fish) - these are considered fast food, and are also found in other countries in the region. If you order a hamburger at a restaurant, expect it to come topped with a fried egg. Drink thumb Tereré (File:Mate containing tereré.JPG) Tap water in Asunción, and possibly Ciudad del Este, is potable. Tap water in the rest of Paraguay should be treated to make it safe for drinking. There have been efforts by PLAN International to bring safe, potable water to communities in rural areas (if there is such water available, it is safe to drink). Ask before drinking water in rural areas however--many Paraguayans will claim their water is safe to drink even if it's not purified. Mate Tereré The most common drink in Paraguay is '''Mate''' made of ''Yerba Mate'' (Mate herbs) that is similar in style to tea but the preparation is distinct. To add sugar is not common in Paraguay. The infusion is prepared by pouring dry yerba into the cup, then adding water: hot water version is known as mate (preferred in Argentina and Uruguay) while the cold water version is known as tereré and is a local favourite. When it is hot, it is more common to drink it as '''tereré''', served in guampas, which can be made out of wood or of hallow bull horns, and is drunk through a metal straw called a bombilla. Mate is usually enjoyed in the early mornings and late evenings especially during cold days in winter. Terere is enjoyed year-round, though not during lunch time and past sunset, as many recommend. Still, you can see every type of Paraguayan (from construction workers to business executives) carry their tereré set during all times. It is a social activity so the cup is passed around - with in between a refill for each person. If you are offered either you should accept at least one cup. If you can get used to the taste and participate, locals will be appreciative.Often, herbs are added to the tereré water (locally called 'remedios' or 'yuyos', which cure different ailments). For example, adding coconut to one's mate is supposed to help with headaches. The taste is best described as earthy, like a bitter green tea, and it will take getting used to before you can enjoy it. Drinking mate or tereré is most definitely one of the social customs of Paraguay. Shops will close around noon for a siesta and for a round of mate tereré with friends. Another variation of preparation is to boil the yerba on the stove with sugar then strain it before serving it with milk. It tastes a bit like smoked tea. In this form it is called '''Cocido''', which simply means "cooked". Other non-alcoholic beverages * '''Coffee''' is mostly of an Italian variety. * '''Gaseosa''' means fizzy drinks of any description. All the usual brands are available. Try the local ''Guarana''. * '''Pulp''' is a very popular Paraguayan soft drink. You can buy it a supermarkets or order it in various restaurantes and bars. The original is Pulp Naranja, made with real orange juice. * '''Mosto helado''' is extracted from the sugar cane and very sweet,sometimes mixed with lime juice to make an 'aloja'. You can find street carts selling mosto near the centro area and in the countryside. * In Paraguay, orange juice and other fruit juices, unless squeezed fresh, are almost always reconstituted from dehydrated concentrate. This applies to all unrefrigerated Tetra-Pak juices. Note that the dehydration process destroys vitamin C, and unlike in the West, ascorbic acid may not be added back after reconstitution, thus ''these fruit juices may not contain any appreciable amount of vitamin C''. Either check the packaging, buy fresh juice (freshly squeezed from a street vendor, or Purifru brand in the refrigerator cabinet), or enjoy the wide variety of fresh fruit available on many street corners. Alcoholic beverages * '''Beer''' is widely available, as are many liquors. The local beer is Brahma or Pilsen. * Paraguayan '''hard liquor''' is similar to rum and is known locally as caña. It is made out of sugar cane. Sleep Good accommodation will certainly not be hard to find in major towns, and will seem reasonably cheap if the parameter is the dollar or the euro. The exception, however, is Ciudad del Este. In Ciuded del Este the cheapest accommodation is near the bus station with doubles for less than €10, in an area that is also pleasant in the evening. Cheap accommodation is easy to find, but if you're after something of higher quality and have the money to back it up, then you'll have a better chance in the Argentinian Puerto Iguazu or the Brazilian Foz do Iguaçu. Learn thumb Guaraní books (File:Libros en guarani.JPG) Although there are few Spanish language learning schools, there are however quite a few '''snake skin peeling courses''' available in most small towns. For a moderate to high price (depending on the expertise), you train with the snake skinners for one day at their personal ranch while learning the ins and outs of the reptiles local to the area. Most are non-venomous just be on the lookout for two headed ones that might get you while you have your hand around another. Most lessons go into the evening where the skinner or hunter will prepare a dinner featuring the snake meat, while preserving the skin of course. Most commonly cooked on the grill, snake is a common delicacy in Paraguay. As far as languages go, however, another official language of Paraguay is called '''Guaraní'''. It is an indigenous language spoken widely outside of Asunción. Most Paraguayans can speak both Spanish and Guaraní. The Guaraní that is spoken is not pure - instead Spanish words are used as well (especially when the word in Guaraní is more complicated than the corresponding Spanish word). Classes to learn Guaraní are unheard of for foreigners (though in the big cities, students who speak Spanish as their first language can opt to learn Guaraní as a second language). There are books available in stores, though the best way to learn would be to speak to the locals. You can learn local artisanry such as ñanduti embroidery and ao poi at the Instituto Paraguayode Artesanía. Work Most people who live in the rural areas of Paraguay are subsistence farmers. Other people who live in urban areas are marketeers. They sell fish, fruit and vegetables, and other products. Stay safe thumb Ciudad del Este street scene (File:Ciudad del este1.jpg) There are not many large cities and if you use some common sense and street smarts, you are unlikely to run into any trouble. The police are known to be corrupt, and if you are pulled over for any reason, you will almost certainly be expected to pay a bribe. In Asunción most cops are not corrupt. In the cities crime is common, though not as rampant as in other cities such as Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Buenos Aires. Ciudad del Este is a hotspot for illicit activities, such as money laundering and counterfeiting, but that should not affect your travels. That said, you will want to keep an eye on your bags and wallet here, as you would do in any other large city. Generally, as long as you aren't involved in drug smuggling (inadvertently or otherwise), and are alert to pickpockets, you should be safe most of the time. Stay healthy thumb Mural in Encarnación: "Let's all fight dengue and yellow fever" (File:Luchemos todos contra el dengue.jpg) * Hospitals in Paraguay range from decent to unsanitary and unequipped. If you get desperately ill, try to get to the best hospital even if it takes a bit longer - you may not find surgical gloves in the worst of them. * There are many stray dogs running the streets - avoid them. They usually won't bother you. * You may pick up a foot flea known locally as ''pique'' (''Tunga penetrans''), these will usually collect around your toes. They will lay eggs in your feet if not taken care of - the best way to get rid of them is to pierce the site with a stitching needle and pour hydrogen peroxide over the area, then dig the bug out. If you have picked one up, you may notice itching or tenderness in your feet. * Paraguay is in the risk zone for the two most common tropical fevers carried by mosquitoes: dengue (Dengue fever) and yellow fever. Respect thumb Carneval in Encarnación (File:Carnaval en Encarnación.JPG) It is always considered courteous for men to shake hands whenever they meet. Between a man and a woman, or two women, it is common to shake hands and to give a kiss on each cheek. Also when meeting, people will ask not how you are, but if everything is all right, ("¿todo bien?"). The response to this is always, yes everything, and you, ("si estoy bien y vos?") Even if you are having a terrible day, when someone asks such as an acquaintance in the street, one always responds with yes, everything. Also when given food, you are obligated to both eat it, and to say that it is good (''rico'' in Spanish). To say otherwise with a person you are not acquainted with can be considered forward and rude. Conversation In Paraguay, due to the small number of tourists and foreigners, during a first encounter people might make jokes or start making fun of you. This is not meant in an impolite way, it is just the people acknowledging differences between you and them and should be not be interpreted offensively. Paraguayans, just like Argentinians, especially in the cities and among the youth, tend to have a very acid sense of humour. It is very difficult to find people who speak English in most of the country, but if you are very patient and try to communicate in Spanish or with signs, most Paraguayans will try to help you out. Those who can will often single you out and begin a conversation themselves, eager to try out their English. People are very kind and helpful, and they will be glad to meet with a foreigner. Punctuality and Perception of Time Paraguayans have little sense of the value and importance of time. Nothing runs on time, and arriving to a meeting a few minutes late is not uncommon nor considered rude. Flights and buses are almost always expected not to be on schedule.

Studies by Robert Haberle and Manoj Joshi of NASA's Ames Research Center in California have shown that a planet's atmosphere (assuming it included greenhouse gases CO 2 (carbon dioxide) and H 2 O (Water (molecule))) need only be 100 mbs (millibars), or 10% of Earth's atmosphere, for the star's heat to be effectively carried to the night side.<

Bibliography of Psychadelic Research Studies. collected by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies Early life Frank Zappa was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on December 21, 1940. His mother, Rose Marie Colimore, was of Italian (Italian American) and French (French American) ancestry; his father, Francesco Vincente Zappa, was an immigrant from Partinico, Sicily. Zappa with Occhiogrosso, 1989, ''The Real Frank Zappa Book'', p. 15. Zappa was the eldest of four children. ''The New Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll'', 1993. The family moved often because his father, a chemist and mathematician, worked in the defense industry. After a time in Florida in the 1940s, the family returned to Maryland, where Zappa's father worked at the Edgewood (Edgewood, Maryland) Arsenal chemical warfare facility of the Aberdeen Proving Ground. Due to their home's nearness to the arsenal, which stored mustard gas (Sulfur mustard), gas masks were kept in the home. Zappa with Occhiogrosso, 1989, ''The Real Frank Zappa Book'', pp. 20–23. This had a profound effect on Zappa, and references to germs, germ warfare and the defense industry occur throughout his work. Miles, 2004, ''Frank Zappa'', pp. 8–9. Many of Zappa's childhood diseases may have been due to exposure to mustard gas. His health worsened when he lived in Baltimore. In 1952, his family relocated for reasons of health. Zappa with Occhiogrosso, 1989, ''The Real Frank Zappa Book'', p. 22. They moved next to Monterey, California, where his father taught metallurgy at the Naval Postgraduate School. They soon moved to Claremont (Claremont, California), then to El Cajon (El Cajon, California), before finally settling in San Diego.

Early years Curet Alonso (birth name: '''Catalino Curet Alonso''') was born in the southern town of Guayama in Puerto Rico. Curet Alonso's mother was a seamtress and his father a Spanish teacher and musician in the band of Simon Madera. He was two years old in 1928 when his parents divorced and he, his mother and sister moved to Barrio Obrero, located in the Santurce (Santurce, San Juan, Puerto Rico) section of San Juan, with his grandmother. Living in Barrio Obrero and his experiences there greatly influenced his music. He was raised by his grandmother and he received his primary and secondary education. In 1941 when he was 15 years old, he wrote his first song. Among his childhood friends were Rafael Cortijo, Ismael Rivera and Daniel Santos (Daniel Santos (singer)).
