But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties
must become ecumenical rather than sectional.
Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe,
our class, and our nation; and this means we
must develop a world perspective.

Researchers from Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK have been testing out herbal treatments on Propionibacterium acnesâ€”the bacteria which infect pores to produce all sorts of spots, from innocent white heads through to puss-filled cysts. In the process, they've found that thyme is more effective than most acne creams and washes.
Most commercially available treatments rely on benzoyl peroxide to work as an antibacterial. Turns out, thyme contains the exact same active ingredient in high concentrations. Across the researchers' tests, a tincture made from thyme beat remedies you'd find at your pharmacy, hands down. The researchers are presenting their work this week at the Society for General Microbiology's Spring Conference.

Idak lah jauh sangat dari rumah. Dalam 15 minit jaaaa. Boleh la dari tak da.
