Another One Bites the Dust - Atlantic Univ. Closing
Posted on their site: "Atlantic University of Chinese Medicine is no longer accepting applications for the Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine program."
Atlantic in North Carolina was a candidate for accreditation that got rejected and thus is closing their doors. Hard to see so many schools failing out there.

Acupuncture in a Pill
A friend forwarded me this link from 2004 but I've never even heard of it till now. Apparently a Singaporean company called Moleac is using Migraine patients who benefit from Acupuncture to determine the molecular changes that are caused by Acupuncture. Then, they'll use some biomolecular mojo to put the same effect into a pill that you can just take by mouth. Back in 2004 they planned to have it understood by 2006, and in production by 2014.
The company currently has 2 products: one for strokes and one for smoking cessation. I have no idea how it is they're doing this. Click above and read through the company's site...it's crazy!
