WORLD WATCH 3.


researchers at the College of Dental Medicine are growing and harvesting human dental stem cells in the lab. To get them to form a 3-D tissue structure, researchers seed the cells on tissue engineering scaffolds made from the same polymer, material as bio-resorbable surgical sutures, pro- viding mechanical support which control the size and shape of a tissue. The combination of dental stem cells, tissue engineering scaffolds and growth factors allows researchers to engineer new tooth tissues. NSU scientists hope to create fully functional replacement teeth.w nl/_hnesoycmsoyd234

reading on tablets, up from under 20% at the end of 2011. According to Kelly Gallagher, vice president of publish- ing services at Bowker. “Tablets will adversely affect the e-book business in that the tablet is a multifunction device and will therefore draw the reader into non-book activities and therefore cause them to consume books slower and therefore buy fewer books versus a single function e-read- ing device,” As tablets put pressure on sales of dedicated e-readers, prices of the e-ink devices could drop until they hit $0, “I think Nook and Kindle will actively promote this [a free e-reader] by the end of the year,” said Gallagher.w lnei.o /es

oride to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Researchers found that fluoride consumption directly stimulates the hardening of your arteries, a con- dition known as atherosclerosis that is highly correlated with the #1 killer. Sodium fluoride is currently added to the water supply of many cities worldwide, despite extreme opposition from health professionals and previous studies linking it to decreased IQ and infertility.h

than ancient wheat) and leads to multiple health issues. Whole wheat bread has a higher glycemic index than table sugar. The reason is because wheat carbohydrates (amylopectin A) cause a larger spike in blood sugar than almost any other food. Amylopectin is a super carbohy- drate contained in wheat that produces an insulin response so strong that it causes fat to form specifically in your visceral organs causing them to become engorged with fat. w


5. w. w 70% of all GM vehicles are now built outside the USA.


The bail out of General Motors initially helped out the union workers and secured massive profits for some of Obama’s supporters. The benefits for the union workers are only temporary though. The CEO of General Motors explains that right now that out of every 10 cars made by GM, 7 are built outside the United States. “Our commitment to working in China, with China, for China, remains strong and focused on the future.” h

partially dark to save money, among them Colorado Springs; Santa Rosa, California; and Rockford, Illinois. Detroit’s plan goes further: It would leave sparsely popu- lated swaths unlit in a community of 713,000 that covers more area than Boston, Buffalo and San Francisco com- bined. Vacant property and parks account for 37 square miles according to city planners.w

The U.S. Forest Service has awarded a timber cut-


ting contract on approximately 300,000 acres of pon- derosa pine in northern Arizona as part of a showcase forest restoration project for the Obama administration. The Forest Service chose Pioneer Forest Products, a company represented by a retired agency official who, in his years with the Forest Service acted as the liaison for Pioneer, and then began representing the com- pany within a year of retiring from the Forest Service. Importantly, the agency didn’t choose a company that has collaborated with conservation groups, that doesn’t want to log larger-diameter trees, and that actu- ally offered the Forest Service $10 million more than Pioneer did.
