Researchers Discover Another Layer To the Cornea 74

puddingebola writes with this excerpt: "A previously undetected layer in the cornea, the clear window at the front of the human eye, has been discovered by scientists at The University of Nottingham. This new layer, called the Dua's Layer after Professor Harminder Dua who discovered it, could help surgeons to dramatically improve outcomes for patients undergoing corneal grafts and transplants. This is a major discovery that will mean that ophthalmology textbooks will literally need to be re-written. Having identified this new and distinct layer deep in the tissue of the cornea, we can now exploit its presence to make operations much safer and simpler for patients," said Dua, Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences."

    When asked one unnamed major local publishing house about the translator rates, they told me that most of the costs go into printing and paper so they can't pay me much more than that. The same publishing house responded to public questions regarding cheaper e-books with telling the public that most of the costs are actually due to the editors, and chiefly due to the translator, so they can't sell the e-books at a significantly lower price because I'm too expensive. You're obviously a smart goy, do the math.
