Hackers Attack South Korea and the White House!

I know for a fact that millions of hackers live in South Korea, where even FBI can’t even get to.   Here’s a bunch of interesting news that hackers have attacked the South Korean government websites and also the White House.

Florida Couple gets their dead Dog Cloned and Back to Life!

Wow, this is an interesting news, a Florida couple gets their dog cloned and back to life in South Korea.

I think cloning shouldn’t be illegal for such cases as your dog or human and in this case, I am glad that the doggy came back to life, what a lucky dog.

What would be cool is if they can “grow” arms and legs for people who have had their arms or legs amputated.

What I wish

Bereft with life without their pet, the family decided to bid on a biotech firm’s dog-cloning auction in July.
