 Plaster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Plaster was a common building material for wall surfaces in a process known as lath and plaster, in which a series of wooden strips were covered with a semi-dry plaster and then hardened into a flat surface.
Plaster is also often used as an intermediate stage in the production of large cast sculptures (typically of cast bronze) or in the creation of carved stone, particularly for building decoration.
An advantage of this plaster image is that it is relatively cheap; should a patron approve of the durable image and be willing to bear further expense, subsequent molds could be made for the creation of a wax image to be used in lost wax casting, a far more expensive process.

 Old Time Remedy - Cancer
(1) The following is said to be a sure cure for cancer : A piece of sticking plaster is put over the cancer, with a circular piece cut out of the center, a little larger than the cancer, so that the cancer and a small circular rim of healthy skin next to it is exposed.
Then a plaster, made of chloride of zinc, bloodroot, and wheat flour, is spread on a piece of muslin, the size of this circular opening, and applied to the cancer for twenty-four hours.
The remedy was discovered by Dr. King, of London, and has been used by him for several years with unfailing success, and not a case has been known of the reappearance of the cancer when this remedy has been applied.

Paying key health workers up to £130 an hour to work overtime to clear the backlog will help thousands of patients in the short term, and it may do something to tackle the appalling retention rates among hospital staff.
Either way, these overtime payments can be no more than the ‘sticking plaster solution’ described by the Tories.
Fine, if money is available to make inroads into the lists (and judging by last year’s £500m financial underspend, it is), then spend some of it relieving patients’ suffering.

 Guardian | Industry is offered a sticking plaster
Gordon Brown held out the prospect yesterday of investment allowances, a bit more cash channelled through regional development agencies, and a new tax credit for innovation.
But this is industrial sticking plaster, the equivalent of giving a new set of kit to the team at the bottom of the league and hoping it will turn them into world beaters.
What industry really needs is sharply lower interest rates, a cheaper currency, stronger global demand, a re-think of the climate change levy so that energy-efficient firms are not penalised, and cuts in business rates and employment taxes to reduce costs.
