Thank you for another essential article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a complete way of writing? These are truly enormous ideas in regarding blogging. You have touched some nice points here. You may also can check and visit into my working website at


Though I appreciate this comment, I don’t believe that Parademic is what you may believe it to be. Suspect that the use of some search algorithm is involved that looks for terms like addiction, narcotics, drugs, opiates, opioids. Parademic is a database of open source media on human behavior in the context of biodiaster. Though the terms are used in the Weekly Notes, the context is usually about drug shortages, misuse of terms such as “epidemic” to refer to spikes in addiction, how “war on drugs” are a means to consolidate or increase political power, and how addiction recovery is sometimes an insurance scam or uses pseudoscience to bilk patients. I assume from your URL that your topic is “Opiate Rehab”, and that your comment could be motivated with the intent of increasing traffic to your own site. I assure you that Parademic is an extremely low traffic site, and its audience are very unlikely to be looking for your services. In addition, if you had read the stub (1 and 1A in that week) you would have noted that is was concerning programs in an area outside the US that doesn’t allow certain drug rehab treatments, and has an hidden agenda. In later weekly notes other stubs include information that do not reflect well on drug rehab centers, possibly counterproductive to a marketing goal. Bottom line for parademic comments that appear on the site are another source of data about how people behave in the context of biodisaster. Your own comment is such a data point, one concerning marketing and potential exploitation of those who have desperate needs. If my topic is of actual genuine interest then feel free to continue reading the Notes, but it is more likely that your interests and the blog’s topic do not intersect.
