    Sempermed announces four nitrile exam gloves tested, approved to protect against fentanyl exposure
    Sempermed (Clearwater, FL) announced that fentanyl permeation testing has been conducted on four Sempermed glove brands and they have all passed. The four brands are: SemperCare Nitrile, SemperForce Nitrile, StarMed Ultra Nitrile, and Tender Touch Nitrile. Fentanyl is the most potent opioid available for medical treatments. It is utilized as a surgical anesthetic or a narcotic for chronic, severe cancer pain. Sempermed’s gloves were tested for fentanyl permeation by an accredited, DEA-compliant, independent testing laboratory. In accordance with standards, the gloves were specifically tested for breakthrough time – the point at which the chemical reaches a predetermined threshold on the opposite side of the glove film. The tests demonstrated that there was no permeation over the duration of the test period (240 minutes) for the four brands listed.

    Market Research & Trends
    Momentum builds to end the largest mercury use in U.S.A. - dental amalgam
    A coalition of 50 environmental, public health, and children's rights groups called for an end to the controversial filling material – dental amalgam – in American children, and for a two-year general phase-out in its use in the United States. Supporters include many major national nonprofit groups, including Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Health Care Without Harm, Clean Water Action, Consumers for Dental Choice, and Learning Disabilities Association of America. The paper, the Chicago Declaration, was released at a news conference held at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

    News of the Weird
    Canadian hotel forgives guest 17 years after flock of seagulls trashed his room
    No, not the English new-wave band, A Flock of Seagulls. It's the ubiquitous seaside birds that deserve at least part of the blame for getting Nova Scotian Nick Burchill blacklisted at the Fairmont Empress hotel in Victoria, Canada, one fateful day in 2001. Burchill had planned to send a suitcase full of pepperoni to his buddies in the Canadian navy. Writing on Facebook, he recounts that he decided to leave it near an open window so the chilly air would keep the meats fresh.
    "I remember walking down the long hall and opening the door to my room to find an entire flock of seagulls in my room," Burchill said in a recent letter of apology to the 4-star hotel. "I didn't have time to count, but there must have been 40 of them and they had been in my room, eating pepperoni for a long time."
    "They immediately started flying around and crashing into things as they desperately tried to leave the room through the small opening by which they had entered," said Burchill, who lives in Dartmouth. "The result was a tornado of seagull excrement, feathers, pepperoni chunks and fairly large birds whipping around the room."
    Older and wiser now, Burchill chalked up the incident to youthful indiscretion.
    "I have matured and I admit responsibility for my actions," he said in the letter. "I come to you, hat in hand, to apologize for the damage I had indirectly come to cause and to ask you to reconsider my lifetime ban from the property."
    The apology worked. Banned from the hotel since 2001, Burchill is now welcome to come back, the Fairmont said.
