Ever smell a hyena??
No?! Really?? Oh… well they stink. BAD.
Mainly from a scent gland under their tails.
Many animals like to rub their butts against stuff to make their presence known.
The same is true for hyenas. They can tell sex, age, family or clan and more just by smelling other hyenas' markings.
Scientists have long theorized that these smells aren't made by the animals themselves but

Dietary fats and oils yield 9 calories/g, whereas, carbs and proteins produce only 4 calories/gm. Foodies know that nuts and oil seeds are very good sources of fat. They are rich in energy, dietary fats, sources for essential fatty acids and vitamin E. Furthemore, they transport fat-soluble vitamins/hormones.
There are basically two types of dietary fats. Visible fats include butter, oils and animal fat etc. Invisible fats are in foods like rice and wheat. Most of the fats and oils we use are either saturated OR un-saturated fatty acid chains.
Unsaturated fats have one or more double bonds and are liquid at room temperatures. In general, they are derived from plants. Examples are: soybean oil, safflower oil, etc. Fish oil, on the other hand, is composed mainly unsaturated fats—with little saturated fats.
Saturated fats contain no chemical double bonds. They are solid at room temperatures and commonly derived from animals and some from plant sources. Examples: butter, lard, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, etc.

Chaz Bono has been doing an AMAZEBALLS job at getting fit!
Seriously, he's on FIYAH with the whole thing — from the fitness routine to a brand new diet where he's cut out sugar completely!! Sadly, it's because of that diet and one of his Twitter follower's disbelief that he had to lay some smack down! LOLz!
When Chaz tweeted about anybody being able to go on the diet he has, someone decided that they were going to be as snarky as possible and insinuate that Chaz has cooks and the means to do it, so it was easier for him than the normal person!
Turns out, he was dead WRONG!

No, DNA isn't an abbreviation for some data storage company.
We mean deoxyribonucleic acid! You know, DNA! The stuff genes are made out of.
Researchers reported yesterday that they were able to store all 154 of Shakespeare's sonnets, a photo, a scientific paper and a 26-second sound clip from MLK's I Have a Dream speech.

Given the amount of unpleasant run-ins Justin Bieber has had with the paparrazzi this summer, we had almost forgotten about this one!
However, the police apparently haven't!
That's right, you may recall back in May when the pop star and his lady friend, Selena Gomez, got into a physical altercation with a pesky photographer who got in their faces after they left a movie at the Calabasas Commons, and although authorities were called, the pair had already taken off!
