Compound fur Antiseptic Made
Pyongyang, October 20 (KCNA) -- The Korea Shoes Trading Company has developed a new kind of compound fur antiseptic. The antiseptic, made with raw materials abundant in the country, is applicable to various kinds of fur or leather. The fur and leather treated with the antiseptic can be kept as natural ones in safety for more than six months.
It, in particular, not only thoroughly prevents the surface of leather from being changed qualitatively but also protects fur.
Pak Nam Su, chief of the company, told KCNA that loss of hair does not occur among the fur treated with the antiseptic and the practical effectiveness has been fully proved through its long application to various units of the leather industry. The antiseptic is demanded in a large quantity by foreign countries, to say nothing of local companies.

Back when I was in in high school, you could go to college, get a job, or, well, if you couldn't do either of those you could join the Army. But things have changed since then. The Army became selective. You had to have some kind of qualifications to get in. I remember having a conversation with a co-worker about one of his kids. I made some remark to the effect that if all else failed, he could join the Army, after which was I informed that he probably wouldn't qualify for the Army by today's standards.
We all know by now that Sienna Miller was harshly critical of Pittsburgh in a Rolling Stone interview. In the interview, she refers to Pittsburgh as "sh*tsburgh" and goes on to say “Can you believe this is my life? Will you pity me when you’re back in your funky New York apartment and I’m still in Pittsburgh? I need to get more glamorous films." Miller is currently in town filming a movie called The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. You'd think she'd have a good word to say about the city name featured in her current project.
