SINGAPORE, Aug 10 — As an urban artist, Samantha Lo’s reputation was largely built around her witty social commentary-laced works in the streets under the moniker SKL0. But these days, the 29-year-old, who was once dubbed Sticker Lady, is talking less about “grandfather roads” and more about things such as, well, parallel universes, quantum physics and meditation. “I had this awakening at one point of time that made me more curious about the world — that there’s so much more outside, and not just in terms of our city or country,” said Lo. Hold on a minute. Is this the same person who did all those Press Until Shiok and Anyhow Paste Kena Fine traffic light stickers. Is Lo turning into a New Age softie. “I don’t know. ” she said with a laugh. “When people ask me for quotes and stuff, I’d tell them things like ‘Elevate and be the change’ and stuff like that. And they’d be like, ‘Wah, now you’re damn zen. You meditating ah. And I like that, because it’s only when people say these things that I’ve realised I’ve changed. Paying homage to Lee Kuan Yew. It does sound like Lo is moving on to the next chapter. It has been some time since the infamous incident surrounding her My Grandfather Road spray-paint graffiti, for which she was charged for mischief and sentenced to 240 hours of community service in 2013. And she is marking the end of this episode... It mainly comprises works from her LIMPEH portrait series of the late Lee Kuan Yew, which was actually what she was known for first, before her interventionist stickers and that certain graffiti shot her to fame. The series, a visual pun combining American street-artist Shepard Fairey’s iconic OBEY poster and the Hokkien phrase meaning “your father” (“Obey your father la”), began in the streets in 2011 as wheatpaste art on A4-sized papers and stickers,... The show marks the end of the series, she said, but of course there is the added layer of significance with this year marking both the nation’s 50th anniversary and the passing of Lee. “It’s a way of saying goodbye to my old self and paying homage to him,” said Lo, describing the series as a way of documenting her feelings (and those of her friends and family) about Singapore’s founding prime.

They are able to stick fast and hold the tissue together. But until recently, no product had been approved for use inside the human body. Earlier this year, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved a kind of biodegradable glue for use in surgical operations. The product, called TissueGlu, breaks down over time. Eric Beckman teaches engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. He says TissuGlu was created by accident. Around 2001, Mr. Beckman and a dental surgeon at the university were working on a problem. They had set out to design a tissue regeneration membrane in a laboratory. In the process, they accidentally discovered a sticky, glue-like substance. “The substance at the time in the lab was just, it was a science project. It was a laboratory material. TissueGlu is orders of magnitude more sophisticated. TissuGlu is a chemical compound used to make plastic. It is non-toxic, meaning it is not harmful to humans. Doctors can now use it to connect big pieces of skin and tissue inside the body. Eric Beckman says the university researchers recognized the possibility of developing and marketing TissueGlu. They knew that medical adhesives and liquid bandages were becoming increasingly popular. But nothing like that existed for use inside the body. “Step one was to find a business team that could actually help us turn what was essentially a technology into a real product and then get it through the regulatory pathway. In 2006, Professor Beckman temporarily left the University of Pittsburgh to set up a business, called Cohera Medical. One of the company’s first employees was scientist Dottie Clower. She had worked in the Office of Enterprise Development at the University of Pittsburgh. She had advised Mr. Beckman about making his technology available to others. Now, she was given the responsibility of product development. “I think that one of the things that made this an attractive business opportunity was in some ways the simplicity of the idea… This was simply a glue that you could use inside the body and everyone understood that. So from the perspective of being able to enroll investors in supporting the. Source: learningenglish.voanews.com
