New Way to Test Embryos for Genetic Diseases Genetic research has discovered some 15,000 diseases that travel through generations. Since 1989, it's been possible to screen embryos for 350 of these hereditary conditions, but the process takes almost a year and is very expensive. Now, British scientists are claiming a breakthrough, new testing that can detect almost all genetic diseases in just a few weeks. The new process, called "karyomapping," has been developed at London's Bridge Centre, a fertility clinic. The Director is Professor Alan Handyside.
Concern deepens amid Trump's controversies President Trump delivered today's commencement speech to the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut. As he praised the accomplishments of the graduates, he listed some of his own… and made reference to reports that he leaked intelligence to the Russians and tried to shut down an FBI Investigation into his associates.
Russian probe gets jolt from Yates and Clapper Senate hearing Intelligence officials have long since concluded that Russia interfered in last year's US election. After yesterday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, what more do we know about the threat to future elections and how it's being handled by the Trump Administration?
The free-flowing leaks in the Trump White House President Obama tried to clamp down on leakers, but the Trump Administration is besieged almost as never before. Are the "anonymous sources" partisans or worried professionals? Are they endangering the republic or performing a public service?
