Little Mix's New Video Is The Missing Link! WATCH DNA HERE!

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTV

Did Frank Miller direct British X Factor girlgroup Little Mix's latest video?!

Cause it looks exactly like Sin City! You know, sans the hooker-eating Elijah Wood and that creepy, politically connected child murderer!

Ch-ch-check out the super stylized, femme-fatale music video for Little Mix's DNA (above)!

The tune itself is SUPER punchy-poppy with a hint of dub-steppy grime, we LOVE it! And we adore these super talented quartet!

So many hearts for you, Little Mix!

Men V. Women: Who Handles Pain Better?

This is a very interesting and specific question — and we believe it varies by person.

But hey, that's just us. When you ask other people the question, though, who would know better than a nurse in NYC??

Check out the video (above) to see a pretty straight forward discussion on who she sees handling pain the best!

Fascinating!

In UR opinion, do men or women handle pain the best??

German Authorities Seeking Identity Of Teenage 'Forest Boy'

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueEtc.

Germany forest boy

This is a story that is truly stranger than fiction.

A teenage boy named Ray wandered in the German capital of Berlin nine months ago and claimed that he had been living in the forest with his father for the last five years.

He told authorities in English that his father took him into the wilderness after

Biological Binary Exists: Scientists Develop DNA Digital Storage

Filed under: HealthBodyScience!

Human Computer

And we aren't just talking one use here, we're talking REWRITABLE digital storage in our DNA!

It's true, scientists have developed a biological system that can record digital data… biological binary, in other words!

Stanford researchers figured out how to us natural enzymes to create rewritable data storage built directly into living cells' DNA. Holy shizz!

Mainly they use the enzymes to flip DNA sequences back and forth, like a light switch, which can be seen as a binary-like system. If it's one direction, it's a 0, the other, it's a 1. You get it.

This can store up to one bit of data without using ANY power! Plus we can see how many time a cell has doubled.

This could lead to us being able to turn off affected cells, like in the case of cancer. We just need to bump up the storage to a byte — and that could take at least 10 years.

Ten years to a byte is CRAZY!

Though, this is super interesting. What we're taking from it is that the cells in our body can be turned into an iPod. Right? Riiiiiight?

Ha!

But really, this is a pretty huge discovery and could mean a lot of things for the medical industry.

It just sucks that it's going to take so much time.

Scientists Make Breast Cancer Breakthroughs!

Filed under: Science!Cancer

Scientists have mapped the complete genetic codes of 21 breast cancers and catalogued mutations that gather up in beast cancer cells.

This hopefully will lead to much earlier detection which means easier treatment.

This research is trying to find out, genetically, how cancer evolves, so hopefully it'll be easier to spot mutations that lead to the growth of breast tumors.

The research team leader said:

"These findings have implications for our understanding of how breast cancers develop over the decades before diagnosis in adults and might help to find possible targets for improved diagnosis or therapeutic intervention in the future."

Breast cancer kills over 450,000 woman each year in the world, so this a great step forward for hundreds of thousands of people.

This is such a big step because scientists are getting their first real close up look at the mechanism behind cancer.

"We've known for many years now that all cancers are due to abnormalities of DNA that occur in every single cell of the body over the course of a lifetime. But although we've known that, it's remarkable how rudimentary our knowledge is about what the processes are that cause these abnormalities, these mutations in our DNA."

Hopefully soon they'll be able to see how breast cancer develops so they can treat it more effectively.

Let's go, science!

Dog Helps Cops Catch Burglar

Filed under: Legal MattersDogAmazing

Rufus the Norwich Terrier is quite an amazing dog.

He's also super cute.

He helped Texas police track down a notorious burglar by finding DNA evidence on some jewelry the burglar hid in some bushes.

The police eventually caught the man and Rufus is now a local hero.

Way to go, Rufus!

California Appeals Court Rules DNA Testing Arrestees Is Totally Cool!

Filed under: Legal Matters

Much like getting your fingerprints taken and saved on file, if you are arrested for a felony your DNA will be saved too.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in a 2-1 decision that a 2004 California law requiring officials to collect DNA samples of criminals is constitutional because it is not an unreasonable search.

Since DNA evidence can be used to solve crimes, Judge Milan Smith wrote:
