An Alzheimer´s drug might be
able to repair cavities in teeth

New York Daily News, by Ariel Scotti

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 3/3/2018 2:11:19 PM

A recent discovery about an Alzheimer´s drug may lead to the end of cavity fillings in teeth as we know them. Scientists discovered the drug, Tideglusib, promoted natural tooth regrowth during its clinical trials on mice, which led to total repair of cavities. They learned the drug stimulates stem cells in teeth, which creates new dentine — the substance beneath tooth enamel that´s eroded by decay when a cavity forms. When the researchers realized the drug was promoting tooth regeneration, they soaked collagen fillers in Tideglusib, inserted them into cavities and saw the tooth craters disappear within six weeks. After the collagen

Comments:
If this pans out, let´s hope the manufacturer and the dentists "find a way" to make the treatment affordable.

The American Dental Association will put an end to this nonsense faster than hillary can switch to a southern drawl.

#1, are you kidding? They’ll embrace it. Dentists are the only doctors who keep trying to put themselves out of business.

Compared to the rest of the world, American dentistry is a generation ahead. I think it’s because they stayed out of government-funded health care. If doctors had followed their example, medical care would be a lot farther advanced, and much cheaper.

And before you ask: I’m not a dentist.

I have a fair number of filling in my teeth from the age of a child. I suspect many, perhaps most, were unnecessary. I hate to say it, but I think most dentists are dishonest money grubbers.

#7, I have had many dentists, moved around a lot as a kid. One Navy dentist saved a bunch of my teeth caved in in an accident. Another saved my life when I had a serious abcess, 25 yrs later, delayed effects from the first event.

I have had only one money grubber, visited him twice, never went back. My current dentist is extremely skilled, very honest and a great guy. He was selected by my previous dentist to take over the practice when he retired, and he chose well. He has helped me keep all my original teeth, even after some pretty impressive trauma as a teen.

A great boom to anyone with teeth. But will the drug treatment cost more than a filling? I hope not.

New York is freeing another
cop killer from prison
New York Post, by Larry Celona    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 6/21/2018 8:49:41     Post Reply
Another Black Liberation Army cop killer is getting parole — Robert Hayes, a cold-blooded thug who killed a transit cop in a senseless subway platform shootout in 1973, then turned a sawed-off shotgun on the five cops who later busted into his hideout. Transit patrolman and father of two Sidney Thompson, 37, lost his life for merely trying to arrest the then-23-year-old Hayes and a second BLA member for jumping a turnstile. Sentenced to 35-to-life in 1974 — before state law mandated life without parole for cop killers — Hayes will get out as early as July 24, The Post has learned.

Gangbangers peddle drugs in plain sight, hustlers resell cheap booze on the street corner — 50 cents will get you a capful — and prostitutes lead johns to the boarded-up husk of what used to be a Taco Bell. This is Tompkinsville Park on Staten Island’s North Shore in 2018 and, to area residents and merchants caught in its heroin and K2-infested vortex, this is a battlefield. “Every day you see muggings, prostitutes, people smoking crack and shooting up heroin,” said Xhafer Gjeshbitraj, 52, who owns a building across the street from the tiny, triangular park bounded by Bay Street

Starbucks may have appeased progressives with its social-justice workshops and open-bathroom policy, but such moves have failed to caffeinate the company’s bottom line. The coffee giant’s stock took a tumble Wednesday after CEO Kevin Johnson announced that Starbucks would close 150 company-owned stores next year instead of the expected 50, with an emphasis on underperforming shops in densely populated urban areas, and lowered growth projections.

NYC launches push for new

Women will soon be getting their place among the city’s overwhelmingly male statues and monuments. Officials launched a push Wednesday to put up a monument marking women’s contributions to the city — and are asking the public to nominate women they’d like to see honored. “This is the day we finally start putting women where they belong — on pedestals,” said deputy mayor Alicia Glen, who joined Mayor de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, to make the announcement at Bryant Park — a rare spot that already has two monuments to women. The city has committed to commission and pay for

Three airlines want no part of enforcing

Three U.S. airlines said Wednesday they don’t want the government to use them to assist in some parts of immigration enforcement, in the latest protest to the family separation situation on the border. American, United and Frontier airlines, which have contracts with Homeland Security to fly people in immigration detention, said they have no idea if they are being used for the purpose — but lodged their objections anyway. “We have no desire to be associated with separating families, or worse, to profit from it. We have every expectation the government will comply with our request, and we thank them

Housing kids taken from parents at border
in ´tent cities´ costs U.S. three times
more than keeping them with families
New York Daily News, by Denis Slattery    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 6/20/2018 10:41:58     Post Reply
The Trump administration’s decision to house children separated from their parents at the southern border in temporary “tent cities” is not only shameful, it’s expensive. It costs three-times as much per person to keep kids at the temporary facilities than it would to allow them to stay with their parents in detention centers, according to a report Wednesday. Housing a child or teenager in one of the newly-constructed tents costs about $775-a-night, officials with the Department of Health and Human Services told NBC News. It costs only $256 per person per night to hold children in a permanent facility like

Fake event brought 15K to

When thousands descended upon Seaside Park for a meet-up organizers promised would be "fire," officials were surprised. And then they were overwhelmed. The meet-up, spread as a flier on social media accounts without any notice to officials, left police and first responders scrambling to account for the chaos of an estimated 15,000 additional beach-goers (yes, that´s on top of the usual crowds for a busy summer Saturday). Some stormed past a single officer along the boardwalk, skirting beach fees, and a handful ended up in brawls caught on camera, which eventually elevated the underground meet-up to the national news stage.

Urine trouble now. FDNY fire marshals arrested a squatter who sparked a massive blaze in Staten Island, urinated on the flames in an attempt to put out the fire, then ran off without telling anyone when that plan failed, sources and officials said Tuesday. Hector Meza, 40, was staying inside a building on Stuyvesant Place near Wall St. in St. George when he accidentally knocked over a candle about 5:15 p.m. on June 6, according to authorities. The flames spread and grew to a three-alarm inferno that ripped through several buildings on the commercial block. Meza bolted and never alerted

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Tuesday that the U.S. is pulling out of the United Nations’ main human rights body because of longstanding complaints the panel is biased against Israel. “For too long, [the U.N. Human Rights Council] has been a protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias,” Ms. Haley said in announcing the move during a joint appearance at the State Department with Mr. Pompeo. “Regrettably,” she added, “it is now clear that our call for reform was not heeded.” The move comes a day

A deranged straphanger sucker-punched a subway conductor in Brooklyn on Tuesday — the latest in a recent string of assaults on MTA workers. The unidentified man socked a Q train conductor after his Brighton Beach-bound train pulled into the Prospect Park station at 11:54 a.m., MTA officials said. The rider was acting erratically while aboard the train, according to a witness, who said the lunatic got off at Prospect Park and, without warning, reached through a window and struck the middle-aged conductor in the head before fleeing the station.

John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials.

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will.
