Modafinil more and more popular in Limerick

Modafinil has been dogged the world’s first safe “smart drug” according to researchers at Harvard and Oxford universities. After carrying out a comprehensive review of the drug also called Provigil or modalert, they arrived at a conclusion that the modafinil, normally prescribed for narcoleptic patients but taken by normal people increasingly, improves concentration, decision making and even boosts creative thinking with few non-life threatening side effects and no addictive qualities.

Many people, who form the majority of the population that cannot enjoy the natural circadian rhythm which allows for normal sleep at night , wake in the morning and staying alert all day, are always looking for stimulants that can keep them active, reinvigorated and more retentive when they need to be so. It is this portion of the population that has ensured the world’s coffee and soft drink companies remain in business.

As life in the city gets busier and busier with more places to be, plans to achieve and less time to complete them, we are always looking for ways to stay more alert, push some extra minutes and hours into work or ensure some quick information stay longer in our brains to serve whatever purpose it is needed for. For whatever reason, we want to have our bodies running constantly 24/7, all week long and as a result, turn to stimulants. The stimulants are usually in the form of caffeine or sugar. But over time, many people have discovered these stimulants are not as effective as they would want, so they turn to prescription drugs like Modafinil.

In universities across the US and in the UK, Modafinil has become increasingly popular for its effect on boosting alertness while decreasing anxiety and sleepiness. The drug can be easily brought through websites and used without prescription. Many students, who are trying out last minute cramming before an exam, take Modafinil from modafinilcat as it jugs up the memory and causes increased short term memory retention.
Modafinil has many other positive effects in healthy people, one of which is its ability to increase “fluid intelligence”- which is basically our problem solving capacity and ability to think creatively. This is one of the reasons the brand name modalert and modvigil are getting more popular among city workers as it makes tasks more pleasurable and confers cognitive benefits, the longer and more complex the task is.
According to a review published in the journal “European Neuropsychopharmacology”, modalert and modvigil was described to show few side effects which include a small drop in creativity among people but never consistently. The review also added that the drug affects mood mildly and causes minor side effects like headaches and nausea.

The review further stated that in comparison to other smart drugs, “Modafinil seems to be the first ‘nootropic’ that is reasonably safe for healthy people”. It is not addictive, although its long term effect have not been studied extensively because of the difficulty in getting ethical approval to test its effect in long term use.
According to Guy Godwin, president of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology, Modafinil has become the first real example of a smart drug that can genuinely help , but still faces an ethical debate on how a drug with potential benefits and minimal side effects can be condoned or condemned. Modafinil remains unlicensed for healthy people, but it is thought that with a wider debate involving health care professionals, politicians and the public on how cognitive enhancement drugs can be integrated into our lives, we may better appreciate (the usefulness or lack of it for)Modafinil better.

The History of Limerick

The breathtaking and picturesque town of Limerick in Maine State in the United States is a thinly populated town that is located along the White Mountain foothills in York County. It is one of the fastest developing towns in York County and its natural beauty, rolling hills and pleasant climate has attracted more and more people to settle down in this wonderful town. The town no doubt is growing at a rapid pace. Its 2010 census reported that there were 2892 people living in this town, whereas the figure was just 2240 in the 2000 census. The number of families has risen to 801 in 2010 from 607 in 2000 and this figure is now increasing rapidly.

Limerick town was one of the towns of the “Five Ossipee Towns” called by the Indians. A trader from Kittery bought this town from the Indians in 1668. Half interest of this town was conveyed to Major Nicholas Shapleigh by Small in 1669. The descendants of Small and the Major decided to give Biddeford’s lawyer James Sullivan one half of the 13,000 acre of land in Limerick town, if he was ready to defend the descendant’s claims. Sullivan’s friends and his associates settled in the area and each of his friends and associates signed his name on a lead plaque and deposited it on the bank of the Little Ossipee River. This plaque is now a property of the Maine Historical Society. The hard work and the character of Sullivan was rewarded by other settlers through a good gesture. They named the Limerick town after the birthplace of Sullivan’s father that was in Ireland.

The Limerick town was incorporated on March 6, 1787. The village started to develop along the old Sokokis trail. It was gifted with very good soil and hence prompted the early settlers to do farming. Nine out of ten people that lived in Limerick town took up farming and it was the main occupation of the people of this Maine town. Their main income was from selling dairy products, hay and cattle. As the town started to develop, the businesses also started to diversify and other businesses like furniture stores, blacksmith shops, hat manufacturing, harness making and shoe manufacturers also mushroomed in early 1800s. The Limerick Manufacturing Co was started in the year 1846 by James Bradbury, and this company was bought by Joshua Holland in 1857. The town of Limerick became more popular due to the demand of the Holland blankets all across the country during the Civil war. The blankets were manufactured by The Limerick Manufacturing Co. The lower village of Limerick was named after Holland and it was called Hollandville which was later changed to Deepvale during the 1920s, 30s and 40s.

Even before the Limerick town was incorporated in 1787, the citizens of Limerick gave huge importance to education. The people of the town raised a sum of 20 pounds in 1775 during a town meeting for school keeping. Now, Limerick is one of the popular towns in Maine that has joined the SAD #57 with other five neighboring towns to provide good and quality education for the children. The town once again created history when it raised $1,262,792 in 2001 as its share of ‘school keeping’ in the district.

A journey to Vancouver animal hospital

It was part of my university project to assess and make a presentation on the working of Vancouver Animal Hospital this was my final project and we were given the choice to either select any veterinary hospital within limerick Maine or go for other options in USA or other than that. I have lived in limerick Maine for about seven years and to make my project outclass I wanted to select the best hospital. I was told about the Vancouver animal hospital by a friend who lived in Canada and he went there for the treatment of his pet. As it was the number one hospital there therefore I selected it. I discussed it with my teacher and he also agreed over my selection and granted me permission to work on it.

Now for the purpose of gathering information my first task was to travel to Vancouver from limerick Maine so it’s easy for me to get every bit of information which otherwise I was not able to get from the internet or any other source. I called my friend and asked him to arrange for every material which I can use to get to the animal hospital.

After a day or two I was in Vancouver, and to my ease my friend told that he has an appointment for his dog so I can accompany them and meet the doctors by myself. I went with him to the Vancouver animal hospital located in the plaza on Cornwall Ave. at Cypress St., close to Kitsilano Beach and Vancouver’s West End.l . After reaching there I first asked about the doctor or any other staff member whom I shall ask questions about the hospital, I also told them that it’s a project of me and I’m from limerick Maine. They incorporated with me and I was directed to the head of admin. Upon my investigative attitude and my determination towards my work he told me everything about the animal hospital. He told me that the veterinarians here are certified by the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia and have experience in their respective fields. He told me that the animal hospital specializes in providing extra care facilities such as ear and dental cleaning, nail trimming, grooming, and allergy treatment, deworming, endocrinology, dermatology, and cardiology services to the pets. The doctors are provided with extensive and regular training sessions in different seminars as to learn contemporary, up-to-date methods of treatment. The animals that were provided treatment in the hospital were comprised of rabbits, dogs, cats, ferrets and hamsters.

The hospital also had the facility of providing 24/7 pet home care service, which is available to you at your doorstep. They also provide prescription foods for the pets so as to maintain their long term growth and health. If you opt for providing friendly, modern, and proactive approach to your pets’ medical care, at fair price Vancouver animal hospital is the place to select.
