China Looks to Relax Green Card Policy

China is considering relaxing its "green card" policy by lowering the application and approval threshold, a move to attract more foreign talent.

Authorities are deliberating revision to regulations on permanent residence for foreigners, considering more flexible and pragmatic application standards.

China launched its green card system in 2004.

Under the system, the foreign family members of Chinese nationals and foreign people who have worked as elite talent or made large investments (at least 500,000 U.S. dollars), among others, can apply for permanent residence cards.

Nearly 5,000 foreigners had been granted Chinese green cards by 2012.

As of May 23, over 1,300 foreigners had gained permanent residence in China through.


Beijing Adds Police Dogs to Anti-terrorism Campaign

Beijing is deploying more police dogs in the capital's tightened anti-terrorism campaign.

Police are told to bring large-breed dogs, such as German Shepherds, during their routine patrols in densely populated areas such as urban centers and transport hubs.

The dogs are also expected to help police deal with terrorist attacks and keep order in large-scale gatherings.

Beijing police have now trained more than 650 dogs.

Following fatal terrorist attacks in recent months, China has relaxed controls on armed patrols and reinforced public security to prevent and crack down on criminal activities.

Root Canal may Become a Thing of the Past!

Painful dental procedures, such as root canals, may soon become a thing of the past!

In a first, scientists have used light to coax stem cells to regrow parts of teeth.

The researchers used a low-power laser to trigger human dental stem cells to form dentin, the hard tissue that is similar to bone and makes up the bulk of teeth.

They outlined the precise molecular mechanism involved, and demonstrated its prowess using multiple laboratory and animal models.

A number of biologically active molecules, such as regulatory proteins called growth factors, can trigger stem cells to differentiate into different cell types.

Current regeneration efforts require scientists to isolate stem cells from the body, manipulate them in a laboratory, and return them to the body.

Researchers say the treatment modality does not introduce anything new to the body, and lasers are routinely used in medicine and dentistry, so the barriers to clinical translation are low.
