DOTS

Acronym for Directly Observed Treatment, Short course. This is a multi-facetted American scheme of control of tuberculosis involving accurate diagnosis, an adequate supply of drugs, standardized effective treatment and systematic review of progress. In China, between 1991 and 2000, the DOTS strategy significantly reduced the prevalence of tuberculosis in certain areas.

New York, NY, September 25, 2016 --(PR.com)-- According to a recently published TechSci Research report titled "Global Quantum Dot Display Market By Material, By Application, By Region, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2012 - 2021" South Korea accounted for the largest revenue share of 29% in APAC quantum dot display market which is projected to grow up 31% by 2021.
See, the thing with the competition pistols mounting red dots, they're all equipped with compensators (muzzle brakes) and are big and heavy to boot, which means that there is much less disturbance of the sight picture than you'll get with a non-ported carry gun.
Perhaps quantum dots could glow in a futuristic, superbright television screen.
