E-Cig Clouds Aren't 'Vapour', Scientists Warn. That Word Just Makes Them Sound Safer


Emissions from e-cigarettes are not harmless and calling them vapour is purposefully misleading.

As such, public health experts argue 'aerosol' is a more accurate description, as e-cigarette clouds have been shown to contain harmful chemicals that may hang in the air and settle on nearby surfaces.

With recent evidence showing vapers are at higher risk of COVID-19, public health experts say it's important we take action to minimise the risk of e-cigarettes, especially on college campuses re-opening amidst the pandemic.

Open access journals get a boost from librarians—much to Elsevier’s dismay


Florida State University cancelled its “big deal” contract for all Elsevier’s 2,500 journals last March to save money, and the publisher warned it would backfire and cost the library $1 million extra in pay-per-view fees. But the charges after eight months were actually less than $20,000.
