Dogs are apparently capable of detecting illnesses with a sniff, and this pup used her ability to save her owner from death.

All the while we thought that dogs can only be trained to sniff bombs and drugs. Apparently, they can also act as live MRIs that can detect serious health problems hiding beneath your skin.

Keola, an American Akita, seems to have a strong sixth sense which helped her detect her owner’s hidden sickness.

Biochemist And Ex-NASA Worker Became The First Person To Edit His Own Genes

Josiah Zayner is selling DIY gene-editing kits.

Cosmetic surgery is becoming a popular method these days if people want to change something they don't like or enhance a feature that they currently have. But for biochemist/biohacker Josiah Zayner, all it takes is CRISPR, a DNA-editing technique, which he showed to the world to be so easy to do.

Zayner, who used to work at NASA, happened to explain the process live on his blog, "Science, Art, Beauty. According to him, he already modified his genes twice. Using the gene-cutting technology, Zayner removed myostatin, a protein that inhibits the growth of muscles. By removing the protein, Zayner, in theory, would have bigger muscles.

The ex-NASA employee is also the founder of a genetic engineering firm called The Odin.
