Dubai-based automotive company Jannarelly, co-founded by Anthony Jannarelly and Frederic Juillot, launched the brand with an intent to create cars inspired by the soul of the 60’s era with the benefits of using modern components.

This year, the automaker has confirmed to be working on an all-electric version of its Design-1 sports car dubbed, Design-X1, however, the company’s next step is to understand the demand for the car. While feedback has been “amazing,” according to an executive, the Design-X1 will essentially be identical to the flagship Design-1, boasting 304-horsepower V-6 engine and a new fin located behind the driver’s seat, while also lacking exhaust pipes since it’s fully electric.

Pricing of Design-X1 is expected between $200,000 USD to $300,000 USD, and if production does get a green light, the company would build an extremely limited batch of 11 cars as the entire project began after one customer requested an all-electric Design-1.

For a further look and additional details on Jannarelly’ Design-X1, be sure to read the full story at Motor Authority.

Man On Toilet Shrooms Panics In Front of Police

The post Man On Toilet Shrooms Panics In Front of Police appeared first on High Times.

Although the hallucinogenic drug psilocybin, more commonly referred to as Magic Mushrooms, is not the kind of hard-hitting substance that can infiltrate a person like a pack of soul-sucking kittens with the mystical power to drain every last breath out of their body until they are dead, the mind-bending effects of this sometimes spiritually haunting fungus has been know to fuck some people up from time to time.

It is the first timers that often experience the most trouble: they start out feeling somewhere between slightly nauseous to standing over the toilet in a drooling stupor waiting for some kind of monster to come crawling out of their guts. Then the room comes alive and they start sweat…everyone looks insane. The only solace for these poor, panicking bastards is that the trip will not last forever. But then it does, or at least that’s how it seems when the mind is hell bent on performing some scary shit for the next 12 hours.

It’s only after the user has set sail on a few psychedelic expeditions inside the belly of the beast that he or she leans to cope with the countless hours of paranoia and chest clenching fear that has a tendency to teeter on a person’s spine and gnaw at the psyche like bone.

But no matter how intense a psilocybin trip gets for someone in your immediate circle, it is never wise to do what a Washington couple did recently after a trip into the magic land of reflection and horror got a little bit too hard to handle for the man of the house.

Man, I’m Really Freaking Out Over Here

Man On Toilet Shrooms Panics In Front of Police

A report from NBC affiliate KHQ indicates that a Cheney woman had become concerned that her husband was on the verge of suffering a deadly overdose after consuming some homegrown magic mushrooms. That’s when she called 911 in hopes that summoning the police, the fire department and an ambulance would somehow save him from being pulled straight into hell on his last functioning brain cell. She told the emergency dispatcher that her husband was “freaking out” on the shrooms he had grown in his toilet and was starting to worry about making it out alive.

Although the report does not give any indication as to what happened before the cops showed up, we suspect the man may have torn off all of his clothes and ran into the backyard searching for a trap door back to reality. But when he failed to find the kill switch, his anxieties tore through the pores on his skin like a pack of electric cockroaches and sent him into a downward spiral that we must admit to being somewhat disappointed to have missed.

Wife Admits Husband Was Growing Toilet Shrooms

When officers arrived on the scene, they found the woman standing outside searching for her tripped-out husband. This is when she apparently confessed that her husband, who was out there running around in an open field somewhere trying to catch up with his mind, may have clipped out an old ad from High Times Magazine and was now growing magic mushrooms in various parts of their home, including the toilet.

The woman went on to explain that her husband recently consumed some tea he had brewed with the shrooms for quality control purposes, but the drugs eventually got on top of him and sent him hurtling down a Technicolor corridor of panic and sheer terror.

So, the cops set out on foot to try to find the man. When they finally tracked him down, he was mumbling something about “freaking out” and wanting to hurt someone.

Back at the house, the man came clean with the officers and confessed to growing psilocybin inside the home. A search of the premises uncovered “mushrooms growing everywhere,” including “in the toilet, and on the floor near the toilet,” according to KHQ.

The man was then loaded into an ambulance and hauled off to a local hospital for treatment and perhaps even a psychological evaluation. So far, police have not charged the couple with a crime. But it is conceivable that they both could be prosecuted for manufacturing a controlled substance. That’s just one reason a bad trip on magic mushrooms is no reason to call the cops.

Final Hit: Never Call the Police for Shroom Overdose

Sure, the drug can be intense sometimes, but it is next to impossible to die from ingesting these psychedelic delicacies. A recent Global Drug Survey found that magic mushrooms are some of the safest drugs in the world. A so-called overdose from magic mushrooms is really just treated as “mushroom toxicity” if a flipped-out patient ends up in the emergency room. The drug is flushed out of a patient’s system with liquid charcoal. However, an actual overdose of shrooms is extremely rare. So just chill out and enjoy the ride.

Ad Firms Hit Hard by Apple’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention Feature in Safari

Internet ad firms are losing out on “hundreds of millions of dollars” following the implementation of anti-tracking features introduced to Safari with iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra, reports The Guardian.

One of the largest advertising firms, Criteo, announced in December that Intelligent Tracking Prevention could have a 22 percent net negative impact on its 2018 revenue projections. Other advertising firms could see similar losses, according to Dennis Buchheim of the Interactive Advertising Bureau.

“We expect a range of companies are facing similar negative impacts from Apple’s Safari tracking changes. Moreover, we anticipate that Apple will retain ITP and evolve it over time as they see fit,” Buchheim told the Guardian.

Intelligent Tracking Prevention techniques were introduced in iOS 11 and in Safari 11 in macOS High Sierra 10.13, both of which were released back in September. Intelligent Tracking Prevention is designed to stop companies from invasively tracking customer web browsing habits across websites. Intelligent Tracking Prevention does not block ads — it simply prevents websites from being able to track users’ browsing habits without their permission.

Shortly after the launch of the two new operating systems, advertising groups asked Apple to “rethink” its position and its decision to block cross-site tracking, arguing that Apple would “sabotage the economic model for the internet.”

An open letter signed by the Data and Marketing Association and the Network Advertising Initiative said the collective digital advertising community was “deeply concerned” because Apple’s cross-site tracking prevention is “bad for consumer choice.” “Blocking cookies in this manner will drive a wedge between brands and their customers, and it will make advertising more generic and less timely and useful,” read the letter.

In response, Apple defended cross-site tracking and said its customers “have a right to privacy.” From Apple in September:

Ad tracking technology has become so pervasive that it is possible for ad tracking companies to recreate the majority of a person’s web browsing history. This information is collected without permission and is used for ad re-targeting, which is how ads follow people around the Internet. The new Intelligent Tracking Prevention feature detects and eliminates cookies and other data used for this cross-site tracking, which means it helps keep a person’s browsing private.

There was initially an Intelligent Tracking Prevention workaround that companies like Criteo were using following the launch of iOS 11, but as mentioned in Criteo’s announcement, Apple closed that loophole with the introduction of iOS 11.2.

Ad company Criteo says that it is working to circumvent Intelligent Tracking Prevention with an “alternative sustainable solution for the long term” that will align the interests of Apple users, publishers, and advertisers, but it’s unclear whether Apple and its customers will find any cross-site tracking feature to be acceptable.

Apple customers who are running iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra can double check to make sure Intelligent Tracking Prevention is enabled on their devices.

In iOS 11, the toggle to disable cross-site tracking can be accessed by going to Settings –> Safari –> Prevent Cross-Site Tracking. With macOS High Sierra, the feature can be activated by going to the Preferences section of the Safari app, choosing Privacy, and then checking “Prevent Cross-Site Tracking.”

This Deck Of Bicycle Hemp Playing Cards Changes The Game

The post This Deck Of Bicycle Hemp Playing Cards Changes The Game appeared first on High Times.

To our surprise, there is a deck of Bicycle hemp playing cards to celebrate the history and influence of hemp on the world. In fact, every deck comes with a “Hemp Facts” card to educate consumers about the various uses of hemp fibers and seeds since ancient times. They even go into the differences between the weed you smoke and industrial hemp. The deck just celebrates hemp, it isn’t actually made with hemp fibers like you may have assumed.

History Of Hemp

Hemp is only starting to become a cash crop now. However, the history of hemp use dates back to ancient times. In fact, the weaving of hemp fiber began over 10,000 years ago. It was used in ancient India, Egypt, China and more with traces of its use from both carbon dating and ancient texts. The ancients likely discovered hemp while searching for textiles. The traces date so far back that Carl Sagan has theorized cannabis could have been the world’s first agriculture crop.

In 1850, the United States census noted 8,400 hemp plantations of at least 2000 acres in the country. Less than a century later, the 1937 Marihuana Tax Act made it almost impossible for American farmers to make hemp.

In 1942, the United States Department of Agriculture made a war-time film called Hemp for Victory to encourage farmers to grow hemp suitable for the U.S. Navy’s ropes. Tax stamps were used as an incentive to get farmers to start growing hemp again. However, in 1969, the Marijuana Tax Act was ruled to be unconstitutional because anyone that claims one is essentially admitting to illegally growing marijuana. Unfortunately, this decision was repealed by the next year with the passing of a new Act.

In 1970, the Controlled Substances Act repealed the 1937 Act and the flaw that made it unconstitutional to enforce. Then, hemp and marijuana were grouped together making both federally illegal. It has only been safe to make hemp in the United States since the 2014 Farm Bill signed by President Barack Obama.

Why Did Bicycle Make Hemp Playing Cards?

This Deck Of Bicycle Hemp Playing Cards Changes The Game

Bicycle Playing Cards have been making paper playing cards in the United States since the 1800s. In 1894, they became the United States Printing Company of Cincinnati. Over time, they’ve come to understand two things well. The intricacies of making paper, and more recently, the shifting views on cannabis in their country.

“As a company whose principal output is a paper product, The United States Playing Card Company knows a bit about fibers. We know that hemp fibers are an environmentally-friendly crop used in textiles, body products and even bio-fuel. Hemp fibers are stronger than cotton fibers and can even block UV rays more efficiently than other fabrics.”

Even if you don’t smoke weed, this is a collectible deck of Bicycle playing cards. The case is decked out with a large pot leaf under a green Bicycle logo. There is original artwork on the Ace of Spades, Joker, back design and tuck with a unique hemp-colored background on every card. Weed-theme aside, it’s still one of the most unique-looking decks of cards we’ve ever seen officially printed by Bicycle.

The back design of every card is the same giant hemp leaf on the case. So your opponents will see several pot leaves while you ponder your next move. The fronts of the cards all have the extra hints of green or a pot leaf added to the classic designs in some way.

Final Hit: Bicycle Hemp Playing Cards

Bicycle Hemp Playing Cards are a sign of the changing times. Whether you keep them as a collectible piece of history or use them to play games, the Bicycle Hemp Playing Cards stand out from the rest. They’re no longer available directly from Bicycle’s website but you can find them on Amazon

You can use the bicycle hemp playing cards to play High Time’s version of poker. We recommend replacing your chips with weed and playing for that instead. Figure out how much everyone is willing to put in and divide that weight into chips. You’ll probably need a scale at the poker table. At the end of the night, someone gets to weigh out a nice pile of buds for their winnings. Hopefully, they’re kind enough to roll one up with the losers before they leave with everyone’s stashes.
