Shining secret that makes silver precious for your health

As shown in more than a thousand medical studies, silver has powerful antiseptic and wound-healing properties. So just what are the health secrets of this precious metal?

'Research has shown that silver is a powerful antimicrobial agent that is non-irritating and non-toxic,' says Valerie Edwards Jones, professor of microbiology at Manchester Metropolitan University. 'Recent studies have shown that silver can kill up to 650 species of pathogenic microbes.

'The metal consists of thousands of tiny silver ions,' she says. 'These prevent bacteria, viruses and fungi from spreading by entering the cell and deactivating proteins. The microbes cannot reproduce and die, so the spread of infection is prevented.'

There has been a resurgence of medical interest in silver, according to Prof Edwards Jones, because it effectively kills antibiotic resistant bacteria such as MRSA.

Scottish Independence: Politicians Love Democracy So Much They're Trying To Subvert It

The polls in Scotland will close this week on one of the more important elections in recent history... perhaps one of the only elections that actually matters.

But that’s not what’s happening. British politicians are scared to death that Scotland will file for divorce; so they’re doing everything they can to influence the outcome of this supposedly impartial democratic process. They’ve spent an incalculable amount of money trying to influence the outcome, effectively subverting a democratic election.

The group, Strike Debt, said in a press release issued on Wednesday this week that its Rolling Jubilee initiative has purchased nearly $4 million in private student debt owed by former attendees of Everest College — an institution run by the massive for-profit education company Corinthian Colleges — in turn freeing those former students from a huge chunk of the burdensome loan bills.

Senators opposing net neutrality rake in more campaign cash

Senators who have vocalized their opposition to net neutrality are taking in, on average, 40 percent more campaign cash from the broadband-delivery industry than those who support it, according to an analysis of campaign data.

The data (XLSX)—a Maplight analysis of campaign contributions prepared for Ars Technica—highlights the disparity between what the monied Washington interests want compared to the public's desires. Most of the 800,000 initial public comments to the Federal Communications Commission backed the FCC adopting net neutrality rules. The commission is weighing whether to enact regulations that, among other things, could prevent broadband providers from charging for Internet fast lanes. The public commenting period ended Monday.

Senators cave to industry, abandon unbundling of broadcast TV channels

The Senate Commerce Committee is scheduled to vote today on a satellite bill without a controversial provision that would have let cable and satellite customers choose which broadcast TV channels they pay for instead of having to buy them all in a bundle.

The “Local Choice” proposal by US Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) and Sen. John Thune (R-SD) had been attached to the Satellite Television Access and Viewer Rights Act (STAVRA), a reauthorization of the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act which lets satellite companies retransmit out-of-market broadcast TV channels to rural customers.
