Mehr News: "Iran holds very high profile in tooth implanting"


"Iran's today status in tooth implanting is quite satisfactory in the world":
Scientific secretary of the 1st International Tooth Implantology Conference (ITIC) has announced Iran can compete with the EU and US in the field of tooth implanting.

Scientific Secretary of the 1st International Tooth Implantology Conference (ITIC) Dr. Rouhollah Nowrouzi stated that Iran holds a very high profile in latest implanting techniques used in the world which makes it competitive with the Europe, the US and other developed countries in this field, IRNA reported.

Being the first Asian country mastering in tooth implanting technique, Iran's today status in tooth implanting is quite satisfactory in the world, Nowrouzi said.

Due to the satisfying development of the tooth implant techniques in Iran and achieving eye catching successes in the field, the International Implantology Committee (IIM) selected Iran as the head of that international scientific group for the year 2016.

(PressTV-Iran) "Zionists dominate banking, media and politics: D. Duke"


Same old Iran. The shorter title that links to this from the main PressTV page reads "World Domination is a Zionist Agenda":Press TV has interviewed Dr. David Duke, former member of US House of Representatives, Louisiana about the influence of Israel on American policy and how Zionism influences media, banking and politics. What follows is an approximate transcript of the interview. Press TV: First of all I'd like to get your thoughts on the AIPAC's efforts to implement more sanctions on Iran and also the significance that a US Rabbi is criticizing AIPAC for what he calls their strong-arming tactics. Duke: First off, good morning to you and good morning to the people of Iran and around the world in our efforts to stop this insane Zionist war – one more Zionist war just like Afghanistan, just like Iraq and just as they've done against Lebanon, as they've done against the Palestinian people. Obviously AIPAC is an organization that is a Zionist organization that's working for the interest of Israel and for the radical Jews who control the Jewish community in America. There are a few dissenting Jews, which we should be very happy for and I'm glad there are some Jews there to challenge some issues. But every major Jewish organization in the United State of America is pushing for war and sanctions against your country (Iran) when the true nuclear rogue state of course is Israel and Israel is a real threat to world peace. It's just insane... the American intelligence community in fact we did a national intelligence estimate of leading intelligence organizations in the United States of America: the CIA, all the national security agencies, organizations in our country and they themselves looked at the evidence and said that Iran has no program for building a nuclear weapon whatsoever. So, why do we have sanctions? The state that should be sanctioned is Israel. At least we have a few Jewish dissenters - Jewish dissenters get some publicity, but I hope that Iran and the world doesn't misunderstand the fact that the Jewish community, the organized Jewish community – that doesn’t mean every Jew – but the organized Jewish community is very, very strongly pushing for war – a war that would be catastrophic for the people of Iran and around the world. I document this by the way on my website and we have the evidence and the documents on this that are fully available for anyone around the world to read. Press TV: I'm curious about how the dynamics work in this issue. I'd like you to explain it for us and our viewers – The members in the Congress and the Senators, do they agree with AIPACS allegations? Do they choose to ignore the facts, or are they all just on board? And how far are AIPAC and those pro-Israeli lobbies willing to go with regards to Iran? Duke: You have to remember and this is the key element for anybody around the world... Zionism is not simply like the Jewish state in Israel or Netanyahu and a few of these other radicals in Israel forming many of these policies and a few other Jewish groups around the world supporting them. This is worldwide. Zionism is a worldwide phenomenon. It is a globalist phenomenon. They dominate international banks with enormous financial power; they dominate the world's media; and they dominate the political structure. In America they do it by controlling campaign financing and basically because of the power in the media if you combine the campaign financing influence with the media they are able to blackmail every politician. Every politician knows that if they support Israel they will get positive response in the media. If they dare to put America first and the interests of the world first and the interest of peace and decency and humanity first, they will be condemned and thrown out of Congress. There is simply not one American Congressman truly willing to stand up to the Zionists in this country. They have been bought off. It's the best Congress money can buy and it's shameful to the American people. As an American I'm ashamed at th[...]

"Iranian [Dental] researchers develop ‘deep implant method’" (Mehr News)


Another great leap forward. I wonder what the image depicts:
Researchers in Azad University of Dentistry have developed a deep implant method which eliminates the possible damages on the nerves.

Dr. Ali Hassani, the senior researcher in the project told Mehr News that the method ruled out the need to chiseled jaw surgery for deep implant of the tooth.

“Most people lose their lower mandibular bone as their lose teeth, which poses issues when implanting teeth,” he added, and that “when a person loses his lower mandibular bone, when bone transplant is not a preferred method, they would need to have teeth deeply implanted which would damage the nerves.”

He also detailed the modus operandi of the device. “It is a metal device which reduces damage on sensory nerves when the technician chisels the jaw or removes the nerves,” he said. “Protecting the jaw is important in the country where people suffer from oral diseases damaging the gum, to which this method would contribute the most,” he added.

Whiny Mondoweiss article about awkward moment at dentist's office


Awkward moment at the dentist's office? It must be apartheid!
. . . A few minutes later, my middle daughter was reclining in the hygienist’s chair having her teeth cleaned.

“Apparently the person who scheduled your appointment at your last visit thought you wanted to see the dentist,” she said as she worked. “And everyone who sees the dentist for the first time needs an x-ray.”

“You provide services in Hebrew and in Russian,” I said. “Why not in Arabic? Isn’t Arabic also an official language of Israel?”

There was a pause and the hygienist looked at me, humanity shining in her eyes. She didn’t respond to me, but she spoke to my daughter. I think she said: “Spit.”

"Dentist Accused Of Using Paper Clips In Root Canals"


It seems that this first sentence should read "Medicaid fraud and using paper clips." From the AP:
A former dentist in Massachusetts has pleaded guilty to Medicaid fraud for using paper clips instead of stainless steel posts in root canals. [...]

Authorities say instead of stainless steel posts for root canals, he used sections of paper clips — which can cause pain and even infection — in an effort to save money.

(North) Korean News: "New Invention for Dental Correction Made in Korea"


"A very small screw which is implanted on tooth root"? I think I'll stick to my imperialist dentist, thank you.
Pyongyang Medical College of Kim Il Sung University invented a new dental correction device.

The existing devices are complicated in operation and take a long time in treatment.

Pae Jae Son, a 47-year old researcher of the university, told KCNA that the new invention is a very small screw which is implanted on tooth root.

It is considered a better device for dental correction.

The titanium-made screw is low in production cost and simple in operation.

It also takes a short time in treatment.

The new invention has already been introduced in Pyongyang City Dental Preventive Hospital and other dental hospitals in the country.

Fars News (Iran): "Iran Ready to Send Dentists to Regional Countries"


(image) If I worked hard enough at it, I would probably have a post for this blog every day. This story, for instance:
A senior Iranian health ministry official announced on Monday that Tehran is prepared to dispatch dentists and dental care specialists to the regional states.

"Iran is ready to train oral and dental care specialists and send them to the countries of the region," Head of the Health Ministry's Oral and Dental Care Department Mohammad Hossein Khoshnevisan told FNA on Monday.

He further stressed Iran's tight cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO) in area of oral and dental care, and announced that Iran is due to host the next meeting of the WHO East Mediterranean Regional Office (EMRO)

The meeting, which will be the first of its kind in Iran, will be attended by representatives and oral and dental care specialists from 22 world countries, he added.

Iran has taken wide strides in science and technology, particularly in medical and medicinal fields, in recent years.

Earlier this month, Iranian Health Minister Marzieh Vahid Dastjerdi boasted the country's astonishing progress in producing medical tools, equipment and drugs, saying that Iran ranks first in synthesizing different drugs and medications in the region.

"Iran certainly ranks first in the region in producing medical equipment and medicine and those who stand behind us cannot be compared with Iran at all," Vahid Dastjerdi said addressing the inaugural ceremony of an international exhibition on medical, dentistry and laboratory equipments in Tehran at the time.

North Korea makes great leap forward in toothbrush production


This article makes me so happy:
The Pyongyang Daily Necessities Factory turns out varieties of consumer goods.

Recently, it began mass-producing a new kind of portable toothbrush.

Dr. Ri Kyong Il, a workshop head of the factory, told KCNA that the toothbrush consists of case, brush and paste. The case is also used as the handle.

The new model is lower in production cost than other kinds of portable toothbrush.

The factory also produces antibiotic toothbrushes with nano-materials and functional materials.

"Ex-dentist" told "Freemason conspiracy no excuse for dodging taxes"


"Ex-dentist" is an interesting description of a person. It doesn't seem to mean that she retired, but that she abandoned that wonderful profession:
A former dentist who says her trial on income tax evasion was fixed by a shadowy conspiracy of Freemasons and Jews has lost her latest bid to get out of paying a quarter-million dollar fine.

Vancouver Dr. Eva Notburga Marita Sydel was convicted of tax evasion four years ago for failing to report a whopping $750,000 in income. She was fined $244,447 and sentenced to jail for 18 months.

Although she served out her jail sentence, Sydel has yet to pay any of the fines.

She filed an appeal of her conviction in 2007, but abandoned it the next year.

In her latest in a long series of appearances in B.C. courtrooms, Sydel petitioned to renew her appeal, claiming that she has found new evidence that provincial court Judge Paul Meyers, a Jew, had discriminated against because she is German by descent.

Acting as her own lawyer, she also argued that Meyers was part of a conspiracy of Freemasons -- an international fraternal organization dating back to the 1600s. Conspiracy theorists often claim that the "invisible empire" of Freemasons has quietly controlled governments and economies worldwide for centuries -- if not millennia. [...]

Sharia dentist drills right through niqab


Just kidding, he doesn't make his patients wear anything that blocks the mouth evidently:
A dentist who told Muslim patients he would treat them only if they wore Islamic dress will be able to continue to practise, a disciplinary panel ruled today.

Dr Omer Butt, of Prestwich, Greater Manchester, ordered two women to wear head scarfs before he would see them and their families, the professional conduct committee of the General Dental Council (GDC) found.

The panel concluded that he sought to impose a dress code on Muslim patients while working at the Unsworth Smile Clinic in Bury, Greater Manchester, between April 2005 and June 2007.

Dr Butt "discriminated" against people on the basis he "disapproved of their attitude to the requirements of Islam" and "did not act in the best interests of his patients", the panel found.

The GDC committee said it was "in no doubt that it amounted to misconduct" but found his fitness to practise was not impaired. [...]

Halacha and dentistry!
Thinking about having a root canal before the weekend? Think again. Rabbi Eliezer Melamed, head of the Har Bracha Yeshiva, has recently published a halachic opinion stating that any elective dental procedures which may leave the patient in pain for several days should not be preformed before Shabbat, in order not to infringe on the joy of Shabbat.

The Halacha, said the rabbi, gives a parallel example, in which it forbids sailing just before the Shabbat, for feat one may get sea sick and suffer distress on the holy day.

"One should refrain from having wisdom teeth pulled before the weekend as well, for that would surely cause him pain and prevent him from eating for at least two days," wrote the rabbi, adding the same was true for any dental work which may result in prolonged pain. [...]

Asharq Alawsat: "Intifadah" against "mediocre dialog"


An uprising against the indecent and the humdrum?
This loud cry of "enough" emanated last Saturday from a group of Saudi female academicians and educated women during the inauguration of the "Association for the Call for Virtue in the Information Media."

According to the Internet web site of the group in question, the inauguration of their association is an intifadah against any Arab satellite TV channel that broadcasts Arab or foreign subtitled serials showing marital adultery, nude scenes, Kissing, intimate encounters, and mediocre dialogue.
They're nothing if not comprehensive.

Chabad in the News


In the Egyptian news, that is:
In addition to opening tunnels beneath the Haram Al-Sharif, the Israeli government has also allowed a fanatical Jewish sect, the Chabad movement, to build a synagogue next to the Western section of the Islamic compound. Chabad openly calls for the expulsion or extermination of Palestinians as well as the destruction of Islamic and Christian holy places in Palestine.
That's news to me.

"Title of Generalissimo Associated with Boundless Reverence"


Why should these posts always be about Kim Jong Il? Sometimes you just have to post about Kim Il Sung. From (North) Korean News:
President Kim Il Sung was awarded the title of Generalissimo of the DPRK on April 13, Juche 81 (1992).

The title is permeated with heartfelt reverence of the servicepersons and people for the brilliant commander of Mt. Paektu who founded the heroic Korean People's Army, revolutionary armed forces, and defeated two imperialisms with his outstanding military ability in one generation to defend the dignity and sovereignty of the nation.

The President was handed over two pistols carrying the lofty patriotic will from his father Kim Hyong Jik in his early years. He, giving priority to arms, dedicated his whole life to the struggle for the freedom and liberation of the country and to the happiness of the people.

He applied strategy, tactics and guerrilla war methods unprecedented in the history to the war against Japanese imperialism. They are still shining as miracle in the world military history. [...]

Kamangir: "Donate Your Kidney, to fight Israel"



CNN: "Mao offered U.S. 10 million women"


Kissinger declined, in effect:
Amid a discussion of trade in 1973, Chinese leader Mao Zedong made what U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger called a novel proposition: sending tens of thousands, even 10 million, Chinese women to the United States.

Chinese leader Mao Zedong, here depicted in an Andy Warhol painting, offered women to the U.S.

"You know, China is a very poor country," Mao said, according to a document released by the State Department's historian office.

"We don't have much. What we have in excess is women. So if you want them we can give a few of those to you, some tens of thousands."

A few minutes later, Mao circled back to the offer. "Do you want our Chinese women?" he asked. "We can give you 10 million."

After Kissinger noted Mao was "improving his offer," the chairman said, "We have too many women. ... They give birth to children and our children are too many."

"It is such a novel proposition," Kissinger replied in his discussion with Mao in Beijing. "We will have to study it."
