“Wolves in the 2,672 square mile Chernobyl Exclusion Zone in Belarus and Ukraine have adapted surprisingly well to their new human-less existence, despite the threat of radioactivity.” http://bit.ly/2NLoYRW

    Wolves are thriving in a human-free radioactive Chernobyl
    Humans still aren't allowed to live in the exclusion zone of Chernobyl, where a nuclear reactor exploded in 1986. Although the radioactivity is dangerous for humans and animals alike, the lack of humans has given some animals an opportunity to thrive.

“CRISPR is emerging as a convenient tool that scientists can use to edit the DNA of almost any living thing, including humans. It could potentially be used to cure disease, enhance the human body, or even change DNA for future generations--which raises a lot of big questions.” http://bit.ly/2uwzzHD

    Should We Edit Our Evolution?
    Maybe you watched the movie Rampage and had nightmares about animals turning into gene-edited monsters . Maybe you saw John Oliver's recent (hilarious and pretty accurate, albeit NSFW due to adult language) take on the hype vs. reality of CRISPR gene editing.

Happy Bastille Day from The Franklin Institute. Benjamin Franklin served as the United States Ambassador to France from 1776 until 1785. As ambassador to France, he was in charge of securing aid for the American Revolution from abroad and forming an alliance with the French, both of which were instrumental in the success of American independence efforts. Due to his wit, charm and reputation as a renowned intellectual, Franklin was beloved there and charmed the French with his uniquely American style, especially his iconic fur hat. http://bit.ly/1SkrJX6 IMAGE: The reception of Benjamin Franklin in France | 1888 | The Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

    Spin the wheel: These sister Center City restaurants offer a 'bar crawl within a bar'
    Most of the restaurants and bars in the busy 13th Street cluster that calls itself Midtown Village are relatively small. Inside narrow buildings originally designed as row houses, tables bump up against one another, and long bars get quickly packed. But as the scene creeps east toward the rising East Market complex, the scale begins to expand.
