A potential ban of these products would be positive for public health according to officials, but it would drastically hurt businesses selling these products. “We have a large stock of product that is legally allowed at other places and we won’t be able to carry that anymore. They’re going to try to get rid of online sales, which is insane. That would probably stop our wholesale business, it would stop our online business, and it would hurt the shops as well,” said the manager of Vapor King Binghamton Stephen Schwarztrauber. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Health concerns are the topic of discussion when it comes to vaping and e-cigarettes. What is in these products that has health experts concerned? Local business owners have seen these talks before and believe misinformation could lead to the losses of businesses and jobs. “This has been a rhetoric they’ve been doing over and over again and they keep failing at it. This is not what New York state wants. They’re fear mongering with the deaths from vaping that has nothing to do with store bought juice. That has to do with the alytic THC cartridges,” said Schwarztrauber. “Propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are FDA approved oils to be used in food additives, consumption. But they are not FDA approved to be inhaled and studies are showing these products, when inhaled, are doing lots of damage to our lungs,” said Kelly. “Some of these products that are in electronic cigarettes are propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin. These two are the main components, base materials of the e-cigarette liquid and are not safe for people to be using,” said Public Health Educator with the Broome County Health Department, Laura Kelly. While health experts continue to warn about the health effects these products are likely to cause…. Health officials say preventing children from getting hooked on these products is the most important mission, while vapor stores think a ban will negatively effect those trying to quit cigarettes.
Selling Houses Australia hosts Charlie Albone, Andrew Winter and Shaynna Blaze.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investorless than 1 hour agoHere are Andrew Winter’s tips for buyers looking to bag a bargain in spring: TIPS FOR BUYING IN SPRING 1. Don’t be fooled by the beautiful weatherDon’t let the sunshine cloud your judgment. Use the abundance of natural light in spring to your advantage.“The great thing about the sun is that it means you can check out the orientation and aspect of the home,” Andrew says. 2. More choice means more buyers Andrew urges buyers to be aware of the competition by monitoring how many other people are looking at a property.“Make sure you monitor how much interest there is in each property, how many people turn up for open houses, and how many hits a home gets online,” he says.“That way you can have control of the negotiations.”3. Consider the home no one else wantsJust because there aren’t many people looking at a particular home, doesn’t mean it’s not right for you. It could just be the spring bargain you’ve been waiting for!“Maybe consider the property that’s a little bit compromised,” Andrew says.“The house that everybody else doesn’t want. The one with a lack of curb appeal. “The one that’s a little bit messy, that needs work. Something a little bit different, with features that put other buyers off.” Love It Or List It Australian hosts Andrew Winter and Neale Whitaker. Picture: John Appleyard.Here are Andrew Winter’s tips for sellers wanting to make their home stand out from the crowd: TIPS FOR SELLING IN SPRING 1. Spring cleanIt might sound obvious, but Andrew insists presentation is everything. There’s no better way to make a first impression than by decluttering the house.“Clean like you’ve never cleaned before but do not forget the clutter,” he says.Andrew suggests sellers start to move possessions out of the home prior to listing.Getting rid of personal possessions and moving boxes will allow buyers to feel more at home and form that all-important emotional connection with the property. 2. Know your competitionAndrew says it’s important to make sure you can face up to the competition.“So, for example, if other houses all have beautiful new kitchens, you might have to review your own kitchen,” he says.Also, never try to sell until you have checked out what else is on offer and what else has recently sold in your area.3. It’s what’s outside that countsAndrew says one of the key elements of spring time selling is a property’s outdoor space.He advises putting your landscaping hat on and pulling out weeds, mowing the lawns and planting some new flowers to add some colour. “Make sure it’s tidy, pristine and all the borders are weed free,” he says.A simple lick of paint can be an extremely cost-effective way of rejuvenating your home’s kerbside appeal.

ANTHONY Bramble warmed up with an unbeaten second-innings half-century to complement pacer Keon Joseph’s five- wicket haul as Leon Johnson’s XI secured a 5-wicket win over Anthony Adams’ XI in yesterday’s final day of the first 3-Day practice game played at Providence. After making 174 in the first innings, Adams’ XI ended on 154 all out batting a second time.Top-scorer Raymond Perez, who overnighted with 40, failed to convert on the final day, while his partner Jonathan Foo who had 27 was removed for 35, with Ronaldo Alimohamed the next best scorer with 27.Senior Jaguars pacer Joseph got himself going as he bagged 5 for 75 from 10 overs for the Johnson’s XI. Left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie also gained some confidence ahead of the season with returns of 3 for 33. Eyeing a 100-plus run target on Day 3, Johnson’s XI batsmen were focussed despite losing a few wickets on their way to a much-needed win, ending on 202 for 5 after they were steamrolled for a measly first-innings 127.Guyana’s leading run-scorer in 4-Day matches over the past few seasons, wicketkeeper Bramble, led the way with an unbeaten 55 off 49 with 8 fours, making up for his first-innings failure.Middle-order batsman Vishaul Singh (47) narrowly missed a half-century but he too made amends for his failed first attempt as he dug in for 118 minutes.The openers, Chandrapaul Hemraj and Trevon Griffith, also got their feet moving as they hit 30 and 26 respectively. Skipper Johnson looked good with 3 sweet fours but eventually fell for 17 as his woes continued. All-rounder Chris Barnwell scored 17 but his recent form is a reminder that he could possibly score a big one in the second match.Adams’ XI managed to find success with Foo who returned with 3 wickets and Ricardo Adams 2 for 36.Jaguars marquee players Devendra Bishoo had 5 wickets, Academy and Windies Youth player Kevin Sinclair hit the only other half-century, apart from Bramble, and bagged wickets as well as Joseph who got into good rhythm on the final day – all good signs ahead of the Regional 4-Day.Meanwhile, players will look to make their final impressions when the final two-day practice match bowls off on Thursday at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence.
