Blast Of Gas To Replace The Dentist Drill?

A new ‘gas-firing’ device may offer a pain-free alternative to the dentist’s drill — and could make fillings even more hard-wearing. The device, which resembles an electric toothbrush, cleans out cavities in rotten teeth in only 30 seconds, according to new research. It works by generating high-energy gas and liquid particles to kill bacteria and blast out the decayed pulp of the tooth. The researchers at the University of Missouri who developed the device say it means less discomfort for patients, as it does not affect the highly sensitive nerves in the teeth.” w/ photos

Entire Town Wins Lottery Except For One Man

Everyone knows if you don’t play the lottery, you can’t win the lottery. But a man in Sodeto, Spain is really struggling under the weight of that brutal truth after his entire town won a $950 million lottery jackpot without him. Costis Mitsotakis said he was overlooked when the Sodeto homemakers’ association went around collecting $26 from each family in town and from 17 nearby villages, to put toward the El Gordo, the fat one, Christmas lottery, which has been held since 1812, The New York Times reported. According to the publication, the town is made up of farmers and unemployed construction workers who were struggling in the current European economic crisis. But thanks to the lucky windfall, each participant walked away with at least $130,000, with same families netting millions.” w/ photo
