Kitajska bo pripeljala zlato in srebro do novih razsežnosti
Kitajska vlada svojim državljanom svetuje nakup srebra in zlata v fizični obliki. Prav tako so poskrbeli, da se to objavlja na največji televiziji, kjer pozivajo prebivalce k nakupu plemenitih kovin kot investicijo in zaščito premoženja. Zamislite si, da 1,3 milijarde prebivalcev začne kupovati samo majhne količine srebra. To seveda prispeva k velikim spremembam na trgu plemenitih kovin.
Spodaj je članek v anglčeščini in povezava na katerem se vidi kako Kitajci reklamirajo zlato in srebro kar po televiziji in vzpodbujajo v investiranje v te plemenite kovine.

Perfect storm for silver brewing as antibiotics substitute--Silver Institute
Silver may soon replace antibiotics as an alternative for healing, and is increasingly gaining ground in the burgeoning field of nanotechnology.

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON -
The over-prescription of antibiotics and the rapid spread of bacteria globally are creating "a perfect storm for silver," which will encourage even more medical use of the precious metal, Silver Institute Executive Director Mike DiRienzo said Thursday.
In a presentation to the Silver Summit in Spokane, DiRienzo detailed new and emerging uses for silver, lead by the metal's growing significance in hospitals and the practice of medicine.
"Currently we're seeing a surge of applications for silver-based biocides in all areas: industrial, commercial and consumer. New products are being introduced almost daily," he said.
Silver may soon replace antibiotics as an alternative to healing, he explained. The use of silver in medical implants is in the testing phase, such as the use of silver in medical implants to reduce the threat of spinal infections.
DiRienzo explained, "Engineers at the University of California, Davis have developed a ‘smart' contact lens designed to measure pressure within the eye. High eye pressure can be a sign of glaucoma, the world's second leading cause of blindness."
"At the heart of the new lens are sensors that measure stress on the cornea and the fluid pressure within the eye. The lens is composed of a type of silicone used in commercial contact lenses and silver particles placed on the lens that act as conductive wires and double as antimicrobial agents," he added.
The new lens could be used by hospitals and doctors to check for glaucoma but also by patients in their homes through a personal computer hooked into a wireless network.
Meanwhile, hospitals are increasingly utilizing silver in equipment surfaces, coatings, and other uses aimed at reducing bacteria growth. Silver is even being used in the paper used in hospital notes.
