A: Amazon is interested in us because they recognize the value of our people, our brand, and our unique style of deep-tissue, toxin-releasing massage. And they don’t want to start changing things now. Amazon’s hoping our nutty Woot steez continues to grow and develop (and perhaps even rubs off on them a little). They’re not looking to have their folks come in and run Woot unless we ask them to, which incidentally you can do by turning off the bathroom lights and saying the word “Kindle” three times; a helpful Amazon employee will appear in the mirror. That said, Amazon clearly knows what they’re doing in a lot of areas, so we’re geeked about the opportunities to tap into that knowledge and those resources, especially on the technology side. This is about making the Woot brand, culture, and business even stronger than it is today, and we expect that any changes will be for the better or we wouldn’t bother with this endless paperwork.
A new peptide, embedded in a soft gel or a thin, flexible film and placed next to a cavity, encourages cells inside teeth to regenerate in about a month, according to a new study in the journal ACS Nano. This technology is the first of its kind.
The new gel or thin film could eliminate the need to fill painful cavities or drill deep into the root canal of an infected tooth.
"It’s not like toothpaste," which prevent cavities, said Nadia Benkirane-Jessel, a scientist at the Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale and a co-author of a recent paper. "Here we are really trying to control cavities (after they develop)." Drilling teeth and filling them is safe and effective. Dentists fill millions of cavities each year across the United States. However, though dentists numb the tooth, many patients still rue the sound of that drill.
Even though I've only seen your eyes and your neck lol, akala ko nga ikaw si Mark Salling when I saw this http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l4nf4ddW7g1qzfjkoo1_500.jpg on @helgaholic's blog! Ulo lang kasi and eyes yung nakita sa screen ko at first and I was like THEGREATESTTHEGREATESTTHEGREATEST?!?!?!?! Si Mark Salling pala when I scrolled down :(
uhmok, wassup wit the anon messages. I don’t bite…too hard.
Manuel L. Quezon III straddles multiple media platforms as nimbly as any teenager or young adult. What he brings to the national dialogue is a sensibility that manages to tie together the past with the challenges of our times.
Patricia Evangelista could have traded on her early victories to become a broadcast glamour gal. Instead, she stuck her neck out for the victims of rights violations, forcing the complacent to sit up and and afflicting the comfortable with sketches of harsh reality, done with lyrical prose and biting wit. Former teen star and Manila Vice Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has paid his dues as councilor, going back to school to better serve the country’s premier city.
So I guess our kids are going to learn that America was a vacant lot in 1492. A vacant lot that the natives decided they didn’t need and happily handed over to strange men from a country they’ve never heard of before. I guess they’re going to learn that the slaves happily left their families and villages and came over here to work for white men for free with a smile on their faces. I guess they’re going to learn that the reason for the civil war was over some silly rule about being allowed friends with said Black people. I guess they will be taught that the Civil Rights movement was just a demonstration. A fight all Americans fought to show how wonderful and diverse they are. Oh, and the outrage over the first president of African American descent? They weren’t mad because of the color of his skin. He just wasn’t “experienced” enough.
Idk about this one dude. I shouldn’t have to be the victim of a girl’s bitch fits just because some dick made her that way. I didn’t do anything wrong. I shouldn’t have to suffer as a result of her personal problems.
I don’t necessarily think it’s the asshole made her that way. More like that’s just how she reacted to getting into a relationship with an asshole and being dumb enough to stay in that relationship.
Dr Kennedy spent five years studying Plato’s writing and found that in his best-known work the Republic he placed clusters of words related to music after each twelfth of the text – at one-twelfth, two-twelfths, etc. This regular pattern represented the twelve notes of a Greek musical scale. Some notes were harmonic, others dissonant. At the locations of the harmonic notes he described sounds associated with love or laughter, while the locations of dissonant notes were marked with screeching sounds or war or death. This musical code was key to cracking Plato’s entire symbolic system.
“Groupon confirmed that the majority of the deals are not real, save for one running in São Paulo — deals from the site’s 30+ other locations are for venues that don’t exist. Rob Solomon explains that Groupon’s standard practice when it expands to a new market is to show users examples of the kind of deals they could get once the site goes live in their city. All of the fake deals on ClubeUrbano, he says, are meant to serve this purpose, but he concedes that Groupon has “done a terrible job of calling that out on the website”.”—
Planet Moneyreports on Asia’s millionaires: “For the first time, Asia’s millionaires have more money than Europe’s millionaires, according to a new report.” Asia’s millionaires now control $9.7 trillion, compared to European millionaires’ $9.5 trillion. Furthermore, “[e]ight of the world’s 10 fastest-growing millionaire populations are in Asia.” Perhaps Gary Becker is right about the world’s new “center of economic gravity.”
