VELO SoundStation is a space for contemporary music centered around the pop culture of today.
What is Velo?
With the Velo music videos going all around, it’s a good time to remind all of you that Velo is nicotine pouches and:
“Nicotine is a dangerous and highly addictive chemical. It can cause an increase in blood pressure, heart rate, flow of blood to the heart and a narrowing of the arteries (vessels that carry blood). Nicotine may also contribute to the hardening of the arterial walls, which in turn, may lead to a heart attack.”
We have all seen those movies with epic trailers and when the actual trailer comes out. Well, Velo Sound Station is the collective shit of all the people in the world with diarrhea. Desperately trying to be cool with its cheap balcony dancers, to the atrocious, horrendous lip sync and the camerawork of someone high on cocaine will sucking on the client’s insecure little d*cks. This is by far the most expensively produced shit I have ever seen. There’s literally no good thing that comes from it except the love for POP music mediocrity.
Everyone was like when is VELO Sound Station starting? Ever since the Velo Pakistan has hit, there have been some mischievous things going on social media. I am curious how long this whole season will take because the lineup besides Sajjad Ali comprises all mediocre singers including Aima Baig, Abdullah Qureshi, Uzair Jaswal, Sara Haider, Natasha Noorani is huge and they are already landing some controversy starting from VELO Sound Station release date.
Why VELO Sound Station is Copy Cat
Strings | Pyaar Ka Rog | VELO Sound Station 2020 is basically a copy of MUSE – The Dark Side. When you have been in bed with different brands over a short period of time, making music for al of them then I’m sure there comes a time when you kinda run out of ideas. and when you run out of ideas then you maybe use Youtube for inspiration. And maybe you think we should copy a song, maybe. And then you kinda use the same chords. And then kinda use the same E minor key. And then you forget the simple fact that people have internet and ears and they will be able to tell that you kinda maybe definitely made a sue-able chappa.
While you guys are here also listen to Sara Haider and Uzair Jaswal | Mere Dil Ne | VELO Sound Station 2020 and then to Michael Bublé – Haven’t Met You Yet and let me know what you think.
Velo nicotine is addictive and dangerous product by British American Tobbaco Company. The warnings are hidden and insufficient. We must protect our youngsters especially underage people. Things like Velo sound stations are clearly designed to appeal to them. This aspirational marketing around velo nicotine pouches must stop! Campaign eligibility for Velo Campaign on Walee:

Air pollution can directly affect behaviour and dramatically increase crime levels, a series of studies conducted over several years have proven. While the impact of bad air on human health is well-documented, “there is growing evidence to suggest that air pollution does not just affect our health – it affects our behaviour too”, says Gary Haq, writing in The Conversation.
Air quality tests at seven hookah bars found dangerously high levels of airborne particulate matter, carbon monoxide and nicotine. Hookah bars — where people smoke a syrupy tobacco mix called shisha from a traditional Middle Eastern water pipe called a hookah. Reportedly, the fights that start in a hookah club end in murders. Exposure to poor quality air can increase the stress hormone cortisol, which can influence risk perception. Higher levels of risk-taking is one reason why there is a rise in criminal activity on polluted days. The researchers conclude that reducing air pollution could reduce crime.
The study from Global Tobacco Control at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health performed air-quality analysis at seven Baltimore hookah bars.
There is a mistaken notion that tobacco smoking in a water pipe is safer than cigarettes, — said Patrick Breysse, an environmental sciences professor and the study’s senior author.
The UN BreatheLife campaign is now challenging citizens to take action by leaving their car at home and using alternative forms of transport for at least the distance of a marathon (26 miles) for one month. We all have a role to play in ensuring we can all breathe clean air, and gain the benefits of improved physical, mental and social wellbeing.
Our results suggest that this is not the case. Our study found that water pipe smoking creates higher levels of indoor air pollution than cigarette smoking, placing patrons and employees at increased health risk from second-hand smoke exposure.
In Canada, where indoor tobacco use is restricted, hookah establishments mostly serve tobacco-free herbal shisha. However, the charcoal used to heat the shisha still releases carbon monoxide, metals, and other chemicals into the air. Haq, as an associate professor at the University of York, says a decision to remove lead in petrol in the US in the 1970s has been linked with a 56% drop in violent crime in the 1990s. Two other reports directly link air pollution with antisocial behaviour. Short-term exposure to air pollution, especially sulphur dioxide, has been associated with a high risk of hospital admissions for mental disorders in Shanghai, while in Los Angeles, higher levels of particulate matter pollution were found to increase teenage delinquent behaviour in urban neighbourhoods.
It is now believed that exposure to air pollution can cause inflammation in the brain and increase anxiety levels, both of which lead to a rise in criminal or unethical behaviour and a spike in crime. Alberta banned hookah bars in December 2013. The air quality index (AQI) reports how clean or polluted the air is each day. Researchers found that a 10 point rise in the AQI increases the crime rate by 0.9 per cent. Levels of crime in London are therefore higher on the most polluted days. The study found that air pollution influenced crime in London’s wealthiest and poorest neighbourhoods.
Specifically, the findings linked higher air pollution levels in London to increases in petty crime such as shoplifting and pickpocketing. But it is worth noting that the researchers found no significant impact on serious crimes such as murder, rape or assault resulting in severe injury. Likewise, in every raid across Pakistan, the culprits once caught are recovered with marijuana and other stuff. But other social and environmental factors may also influence people’s behaviour. Environmental disorder – such as broken windows and graffiti – can induce social and moral disorder. Recently, I watched a documentary about Layyari and noticed that the youth have been found indulging in unhealthy stuff like sniffing. The broken window theory suggests that signs of disorderly and petty criminal behaviour trigger more disorderly and petty criminal behaviour, causing this behaviour to spread.
By comparing 1.8 million crimes recorded in London over two years with pollution data, researchers at the London School of Economics found that a 10-point rise in the air quality index increased the crime rate in the capital by 0.9%. It is becoming clear the effects of polluted air go beyond the well-known impacts on health and the environment. Yet air pollution remains high in many countries. According to the World Health Organisation, nine out of 10 people worldwide are now breathing in toxic air.
While the study relies on observational data and therefore cannot make definitive conclusions, The Independent says “it adds to a small but growing body of evidence linking pollution and crime”. But there’s plenty of evidence to prove that poor air quality is bad for both our physical and mental health. Concerted action by national and local government is required to tackle the problem by developing more sustainable transport, efficient and renewable energy production and use, and waste management.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about how individual air pollutants can affect health and behaviour, and how this differs with gender, age, class, income and geographic location, — admits Huq.
With the World Health Organisation estimating nine out of ten people worldwide are now regularly exposed to toxic air, the link between air pollution and crime could have wide-ranging and potentially devastating effects for society in the years to come. There’s still a lot we don’t know about how individual air pollutants can affect health and behaviour, and how this differs with gender, age, class, income and geographic location. The link between high levels of air pollution and increases in type of behaviour requires further robust evidence to determine a stronger causal link.
But wait! we can control this by staying in healthier environments and to some extent by using energy efficient devices.
One scary theme that has emerged is that they are using young boys and girls to market and give out free samples to people despite knowing the velo side effects. Hence, there is a greater risk of addiction and it seems forced. Have you had a similar experience? Were you approached by a Velo marketing person who gave it to you and told you how to us velo? Were you a non-smoker and still got velo nicotine gum in Pakistan?
