For a start history cannot be eradicated or re-written, forget it. It is often said to plan the better future we need to know the past. Those monuments, any that recall wrong was done, should be used as examples of what not to repeat. Why destroy the evidence? They could be used as an apology even, with annotated histories and facts made known or displayed. How can true history be taught, learned from, if it is destroyed. Furthermore how can anyone generate mutual respect by inadmissible hooliganism which destroys property and more likely drives a further wedge into race relations. I find it very disappointing that so many in New Zealand display an immaturity, with violence, triggered by an event in a far away country, a country which presently is no good example to follow. Our two country's problems are not truly comparable. I honestly thought we were better than that. I respect your opinion, please respect mine.

Tooth decay
Tooth decay happens when acids wear away the tooth's hard surface layer, called enamel. These acids are made by a sticky film called plaque.
Plaque build-up on teeth has germs that feed on sugary foods. The process of digesting these sugars makes acids that attack tooth surfaces.

Over a period of time, tooth decay can cause holes in the tooth surface. These are called tooth cavities. If left untreated, cavities can get bigger. They can even destroy the tooth.

There are different stages of tooth decay

First Stage - The dull spot on the tooth's surface may be decay. Brushing teeth with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing may prevent it from becoming a tooth cavity.

Second Stage - The tooth decay is now a cavity. It has gone through the tooth's hard surface layer.

Third Stage - Now that the tooth decay has reached the softer layer of the tooth, it will get bigger faster.

Fourth Stage - If the cavity is not filled, it can cause bigger problems deeper in the tooth.

Here are some tips to help prevent tooth decay:

Avoid eating a lot of sugary foods. Cut down on snacks between meals. This will help prevent plaque from making acid. It will also reduce the number of times your teeth are exposed to acids.

Eat a diet high in calcium. Calcium helps strengthen tooth surfaces.Drink plenty of water, especially if you take certain medicines. Some medicines can decrease the amount of saliva your body makes.

Use a toothpaste and mouthwash with fluoride. Fluoride helps make tooth surfaces harder and stronger

Covid-19 "Isolate"

My last post for the week, I've been told off for too many!

I would be early to criticise incompetence. The isolation process at the coal face however involves dozens of people. It was never possible to select or interview them as being loyal, intelligent or willing to follow instructions.We should find out who failed to do their job properly. Was it professional folk, hotel managers or staff, who was it? It seems to me the errors made were so stupid that I do wonder if it wasn't deliberate. Many people have displayed a cavalier attitude to the lock down rules. Even politicians have contested them, changed their minds, and criticised at every possible hindsight. I could easily say, with hindsight, that the military who do as they're told should be on border duties. They have, I can assure you, little or no political bias, they are disciplined.
The government have now applied military discipline and it's a good call. It goes without saying that the political bigots in opposition will milk this all they can. By so doing they actually undermine their own credibility because they have no intention of thinking.
