10 Hashtags You Need to Use if You’re in Healthcare

10 Hashtags You Need to Use if You’re in Healthcare | Hash | Scoop.it

Here’s a fun fact that I may or may not have just made up: the word hashtag is being used 1000% more since the birth of Twitter in 2006. Other social channels have joined the fun with hashtags also being used on Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram, Vine and others! If your health care facility hasn’t engaged on social media yet, I sure hope you plan to very soon.

Benefits of Hashtagging

Hashtags are a great way to build your digital brand. It makes topics and conversations you start or join easier for the audience to find and engage with. Joining an already trending topic is a great way to get your content and brand in front of a qualified audience. Starting your own hashtag and seeing great engagement from the audience--or even having it become a trending topic--lets you know the quality of your audience and brand awareness.

Search engines (Google in particular) are beginning to incorporate hashtags more within the search engine results pages. So now using hashtags within your social copy can place your content higher and even link back to your website on more results pages.

New to Twitter? Here’s a Refresher on Hashtags! Place the hashtag symbol # before a relevant keyword or phrase in the tweet to categorize that Tweet and help the audience find similar content within the Twitter search. By clicking on a hashtag in any message, it’ll show you all other tweets marked with that keyword. Hashtags can be placed anywhere within the tweet. Feel free to place in the beginning, middle or end. My tip is, if your hashtagged keyword isn’t naturally within the copy, then place the hashtag at the end. Hashtags that become very popular are considered Trending Topics.

Now that you know the benefits of using Hashtags and have some best practices, let’s take a look at some of the most popular hashtags within the healthcare industry.

10 GREAT HASHTAGS TO USE IF YOU’RE IN HEALTHCARE #DigitalHealth #FOAMed (Free open access meducaton) #mhealth (mobile health) #hcsm (healthcare social media) #MedEd (Medical Education) #HealthTalk #doctors20 (How Doctors are Usng Social Media and Web 2.0 Tools) #4patients #HCR (Health Care Reform) #Hitsm (Health Care IT Social Media)

These suggestions are a great place to join an already trending conversation and engage with the audience. Share your knowledge and links to your website, where they can learn more. Half of the work is done already, now go get started! #GoodLuck

Everyone did it

The Pursuit of Oblivion: A Global History of Narcotics, 1500-2000.

By Richard Davenport-Hines.

“ABSOLUTE sobriety is not a natural or primary human state,” asserts Richard Davenport-Hines at the beginning of this voluminous and comprehensive history of drug-taking. The evidence he produces is overwhelming. For the past three centuries (he barely glances at the previous two), humanity has found ever more ingenious and effective routes to oblivion. Until the second half of the 19th century, governments made little serious effort to intervene.

Apart from the ubiquitous desire to get stoned, the other constant attribute of the past is hypocrisy. Narcotics, it emerges, have always been a passion mainly of the upper classes and the lower orders. The first group tends to grumble about the debauchery of the second. There, for instance, is Samuel Taylor Coleridge demanding “legislative interference” because he was shocked by the quantities of laudanum (opium in alcohol) sold by country druggists to the poor. Rather rich from a man whom Dorothy Wordsworth described as “the slave of stimulants”.

However, he was not alone. Every familiar name in British history, it seems from Mr Davenport-Hines's painstaking research, was swallowing, sniffing or (after the helpful invention of the hypodermic syringe) injecting something. George IV's “ungovernable” affection for laudanum (and cherry brandy) horrified the increasingly prim middle classes: he needed 100 drops of laudanum before he could face Lord Aberdeen, the foreign secretary. William Wilberforce, scourge of slavers, ascribed to opium his powers of public speaking. Wilkie Collins described in his novels how boredom and the social stigma of alcohol consumption drove wealthy Victorian women to share his addiction to laudanum.

Hypocrisy marked Britain's approach to the drug trade in the 18th and 19th centuries. In spite of the scruples felt by William Ewart Gladstone, that puritanical prime minister, who sipped laudanum before appearing in the House of Commons, great trading barons such as the founders of Jardine Matheson made fortunes from shipping opium to China. In the 1890s, the British government was still dithering over allowing its colonies to export drugs.

A greater hypocrisy has coloured the 20th century's approach, and especially that of the United States. America was quick to ban the sale and consumption of heroin and cocaine: by 1919, it had even banned maintenance prescriptions by doctors to suffering addicts, something that Britain long allowed. And, while the British government was deeply reluctant to outlaw hashish in the 1920s, America pushed through an international agreement to do so. But drugs produced by pharmaceutical companies escaped such treatment. Barbiturates became one of the century's most popular drugs. American troops in Vietnam were fed huge quantities of amphetamines, in order to stimulate their fighting zeal. When President Nixon came to the White House and launched a “war” on drugs, American pharmaceutical companies were producing 8 billion amphetamines a year. The 1972 Vienna convention, which constrains national drug policies, treated such stimulants and depressants far more lightly than heroin, cocaine and marijuana.

Mr Davenport-Hines's prejudices are firmly on the side of the liberalisers. “Drugs remain dangerous, but they can also be rewarding to both suppliers and users; accordingly they remain ineradicable,” he argues. In a few final paragraphs, he suggests some wiser policies than the harsh criminalisation of the past 30 years that has over-crowded prisons with narcotics offenders and manifestly failed to alter people's drug habits.

Kidnappers in bid to force Tunisians to free alleged Libyan drug smuggler

In yet another sign that the rule of law is still a far distant dream in much of the country, a Tunisian was abducted on Sunday by an armed group from Zawia who were hoping to use him as a bargain chip to ensure freedom of a Libyan man arrested by Tunisian customs on Saturday at Ben Guerdane when 35 kilos of hashish were found in his car.

It is said that the arrested man’s brother organised the subsequent kidnap, which happened on the coast road between the border town of Zultan and the crossing at Ras Jedir.

However, matters did not go according. Security forces managed a short while later to free the Tunisian. He, though, is now being held “in a safe place” in the belief that he too is a smuggler.

It is reported that there has been no action against those who abducted him.

Recreational drug discovery: natural products as lead structures for the synthesis of smart drugs

Recreational drug discovery: natural products as lead structures for the synthesis of smart drugs | Hash | Scoop.it

Over the past decade, there has been a growing transition in recreational drugs from natural materials (marijuana, hashish, opium), natural products (morphine, cocaine), or their simple derivatives (heroin), to synthetic agents more potent than their natural prototypes, which are sometimes less harmful in the short term, or that combine properties from different classes of recreational prototypes. These agents have been named smart drugs, and have become popular both for personal consumption and for collective intoxication at rave parties. The reasons for this transition are varied, but are mainly regulatory and commercial. New analogues of known illegal intoxicants are invisible to most forensic detection techniques, while the alleged natural status and the lack of avert acute toxicity make them appealing to a wide range of users. On the other hand, the advent of the internet has made possible the quick dispersal of information among users and the on-line purchase of these agents and/or the precursors for their synthesis. Unlike their natural products chemotypes (ephedrine, mescaline, cathinone, psilocybin, THC), most new drugs of abuse are largely unfamiliar to the organic chemistry community as well as to health care providers. To raise awareness of the growing plague of smart drugs we have surveyed, in a medicinal chemistry fashion, their development from natural products leads, their current methods of production, and the role that clandestine home laboratories and underground chemists have played in the surge of popularity of these drugs.
