via http://ift.tt/2lBsL5k:End of fillings in sight as scientists find Alzheimer's drug makes teeth grow back:



Researchers at King’s College London found that the drug Tideglusib stimulates the stem cells contained in the pulp of teeth so that they generate new dentine – the mineralised material under the enamel.

Teeth already have the capability of regenerating dentine if the pulp inside the tooth becomes exposed through a trauma or infection, but can only naturally make a very thin layer, and not enough to fill the deep cavities caused by tooth decay.

But Tideglusib switches off an enzyme called GSK-3 which prevents dentine from carrying on forming.

Scientists showed it is possible to soak a small biodegradable sponge with the drug and insert it into a cavity, where it triggers the growth of dentine and repairs the damage within six weeks.

The tiny sponges are made out of collagen so they melt away over time, leaving only the repaired tooth.

That is by far the coolest thing I’ve heard this year.

Today I went on a writing spree and finished about 7ish thousand words before my body insisted that it was the to get up for a bit. (And I still feel like I can write more)

I watched IM1 with the subtitles on, which was an amazing thing. I love that there are still things that are new even though I’ve seen it 1357543 times.

AND I got TWO lovely comments on AO3.

Also, my cat has been very demanding of my attention and thew a hissy fit when I couldn’t find his mouse.

He has now squeezed himself into a hammock that he hasn’t fit into since he was kitten.

Good day.

As said by IFL science

Cameron Drake of San Francisco has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing. If you’d like to know more about the project, please check out Drake’s blog.

I kind of hate/love when I’m writing and that “one tiny detail” bug comes along and diverts me for potentially hours trying to figure it out. 

Seriously, this was the difference of one single word, and I had to scroll through all 332 IM Vol 1 comics and bug @flange5 to satisfy the bug.

Icelandic knitting patterns for mittens.  They’d be great for cross stitch as well.

@scifigrl47 said I owed her some identity porn, and I don’t even remember why I owe it to her but apparently I accepted her statement at face value. 

Title: Hey To The Starboard
Rating: right now General, don’t know where it’ll go.
Warnings: None
Summary: Captain America has been recovered from the crash that everyone thought had killed him, but he’s caught in the middle of some delicate twenty-first century politics, not to mention some personal negotiations with his savior and his new best friend Iron Man’s boss, Tony Stark. (A bit of Steve/Tony identity porn.) 

This is just the opening scene. Not sure if I’ll finish it out but I do have ideas for the rest. 


“Iron Man is gonna be soooooo mad he missed this,” a voice said, and Steve, faintly, registered it as female.

He hadn’t really expected to register much of anything, after the crash, but he was warm and whatever he was lying on was dry and soft, so he wasn’t going to complain. Maybe they’d recovered him before hypothermia could set in.

His thoughts were sluggish, and over top of them he heard a man laugh lightly. “I guess so, but he’ll find out soon enough.”

“He’ll still be mad. Captain America’s his idol. His inspiration. He’s said so on all the talk shows,” the woman said.

“Probably just bucking for the job, before he knew it was still taken,” the man replied, still sounding amused. Steve managed to crack open dry-feeling eyes. The room was dimly lit, a mercy, and he could make out shadows in front of a low amber-colored lamp. The air tasted tinny, though that could just be his tongue.

There was a tiny woman in a yellow mechanic’s jumpsuit sitting to one side of the lamp, and on the other was a man in a lab coat, with a shock of messy dark hair and his legs kicked up on the table.

“You’re so mean to him,” the woman said.

“I’m his boss,” the man replied carelessly. “You just want to charm the helmet off him, I know you of old, Jan van Dyne.”

Okay, now I’m off to bed. Still rated G. :D


Three days later, Steve was sitting on the roof of a mansion in Manhattan – Avengers mansion, sovereign land, a strange legal limbo – when he heard a sort of muted roar. A streak of red passed through the sky, curved around, slowed, and came into focus in the distance as a man-shaped suit of cherry-red armor.

Steve had seen pictures of Iron Man. There was a painting in the mansion’s ballroom, and Tony (Anthony Stark, a hard shock to be the same age now as a man who hadn’t been born when Steve knew his father) had several prints of specs and color swatches in his study.

In person, though, the armor was magnificent, buffed to a high shine, sleek and touched with gold. Steve was so stunned by it he almost didn’t notice it was drifting closer until it was right in front of the roof.

There was a man in the armor, supposedly. Nobody knew who it was, except presumably Tony. The man lifted an arm and touched his forehead respectfully. The request was clear – permission to approach?

Steve summoned a smile and held up a hand, fingers curling in to gesture him closer. Iron Man’s boots touched down on the edge of the roof, heedless of the six inches between himself and a fifty-foot drop.

“The problem with math puns is that calculus jokes are all derivative, trigonometry jokes are too graphic, algebra jokes are usually formulaic, and arithmetic jokes are pretty basic. But I guess the occasional statistics joke is an outlier.”
