Poisonous herb extract may lead to birth control pills for men 18.1.2018 General News
A plant extract, traditionally used by African warriors as a heart-stopping poison on their arrows, may be used to develop birth control pill for men, a study in mice suggests. Women have many options for oral contraceptives that are safe, effective and reversible, but despite decades of research, men have none. Two types of African plants make the poisonous compound called ouabain. Mammals also produce it in their bodies, though at lower levels that are thought to help control blood pressure; doctors sometimes prescribe small doses of the compound to treat heart attack patients. Ouabain disrupts the passage of sodium and calcium ions through the membrane protein, which are are found in cell membranes and are made up of protein subunits.

South Korean soldiers' wages almost doubled 17.1.2018 General News
South Korea nearly doubled wages for its rank-and-file conscripted soldiers but their pay will remain just a fraction of the country's minimum wage. Salaries for conscripted privates were raised 88 percent from 163,000 won to 306,100 won ($288) a month, with privates first class and corporals enjoying similar increases. But they remain far below South Korea's minimum wage of 7,530 won ($7) per hour. President Moon Jae-In has promised to increase conscripts' pay to half the minimum wage by 2022. As part of the changes, public servants' wages rose an average 2.6 per cent, while Moon's own salary went up 2.27 per cent to 225 million won a year.
