Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced Sunday that he has decided to raise the monthly minimum wage by 50 percent from 27,092 bolivares to 40,638 bolivares, the latter amount equivalent to about $60 at the official exchange rate of 678 bolivares per US dollar.
"Our money only has value as low-quality toilet paper, BUT YOU'LL BE GETTING MORE OF IT!"
Somehow, I don't think this is going to work.
I hope this pans out.
Researchers at King's College London found that the drug Tideglusib stimulates the stem cells contained in the pulp of teeth so that they generate new dentine – the mineralised material under the enamel.
Teeth already have the capability of regenerating dentine if the pulp inside the tooth becomes exposed through a trauma or infection, but can only naturally make a very thin layer, and not enough to fill the deep cavities caused by tooth decay.
But Tideglusib switches off an enzyme called GSK-3 which prevents dentine from carrying on forming.
Scientists showed it is possible to soak a small biodegradable sponge with the drug and insert it into a cavity, where it triggers the growth of dentine and repairs the damage within six weeks.
