Let’s start this week with a very interesting article about Chinese scientists editing the genomes of human embryos. There has been a lot of debate about whether this should be tried out or not, and it was inevitable that someone did try it out. The current experiment has failed, but it is only a matter of time that they succeed.
In somewhat related news, scientists have completed sequencing the whole genome of the woolly mammoth. Actually bringing back an extinct species is still some time away, but it seems like the expert opinion on the issue is that it can be done.
It seems like the government is working on making the idle gold lying in temples and with public to work, will be a good thing if it actually works.
Amazon is always trying new delivery methods, this one is quite novel as well – delivery in the trunk of your car.
Buy your kid a domain name – does actually sound like a great idea.
Finally, there are many good lessons to learn from our bigger neighbor but perhaps the lesson to hire strippers at funerals is best avoided.
Have a good weekend!
