With one of those conventional glowing dogs that you can find at PetCo or outside of your local nuclear power plant, the incessant light can become an issue when you’re trying to watch a movie or something. South Korean scientists have put an end to this widespread and serious problem by giving their latest glowing dog an off switch.
The switch isn’t like a big metal toggle on the dog’s butt or anything; it’s a chemical trigger. If you give this dog (a two year old female beagle named Tegon) an antibiotic called doxycycline along with her food, she’ll start to glow under ultraviolet light:
Aww, cute! To get this to work, Tegon was cloned, and in the process her genes were modified to instruct her cells to react to the antibiotic by glowing. The point of all this isn’t to just create a dog that you can switch on to save on your electric bill, but rather to explore how to use dogs to help us search for cures to diseases (like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s) that are common to both dogs and humans.
If you want one of these fancy glowing dogs for your own, better start saving: Tegon here took four years to, uh, develop, and she cost about $3 million.

this won’t happen during Friday night cards night….
Molson Coors has become the latest brewery to announce the launch of a new girlie beer for more feminine sensibilities.
Animée, which is set to launch in the UK this fall, is a 4 percent alcohol brew that’s described as “lightly sparkling and finely filtered with a delicious, fresh taste.”
Instead of amber ale, Animée comes in clear filtered, crisp rosé and zesty lemon flavors – all developed to be less masculine in look and taste.
The product is the result of two years of research between Molson Coors and BitterSweet Partnership, a venture that was set up to tap into the underserved market of women. Come September, the brewery is expected to mount a heavy £2 million (€2.27 million) advertising campaign.
According to the group, 79 percent of women in the UK say they never or rarely drink beer for reasons that range from bloating, weight concerns, aesthetics, and image.
Animée is Molson’s attempt to capture a market that’s being aggressively pursued by other breweries like Danish beermaker Carlsberg, which launched its version of a girlie beer in May called Copenhagen. The wheat malt and rice-based beer is 4.5 percent alcohol and is scheduled to roll out across Europe this year and Asia in 2012.
Carlsberg also sells a fruit spritzer called Eve in Russia, the UK, Switzerland, Denmark and the Ukraine that comes in lychee, grapefruit, peach and passion flavors.

Ten thousand actors, dancers and singers will be recruited to perform at the London 2012 opening and closing ceremonies.
London Mayor Boris Johnson said he wanted volunteers to impress billions of people around world who will be watching next July’s extravaganza in the Olympic Park in Stratford.
But the would-be stars must be hardy enough to put up with the unpredictable British summer weather.
The Mayor’s office said volunteers do not need to be accomplished actors but must possess “commitment, passion and lots of energy, as well as the desire to rehearse through wind and rain”.
They will have the chance to perform alongside some of the biggest names in British showbusiness in front of 80,000 people in the stadium. The performers will set the stage for the introduction of the world’s athletes.

Terrified passengers had a right bus strop when their oblivious driver motored on – after the wheels had fallen off his coach.
Driver Shi Shao, 48, told police in Shaoyang, Hunan province, southern China, that he thought he’d hit a pothole and was returning to his depot to have the suspension checked.
But his horrified passengers begged him to stop when they saw the bus’s rear axle behind them in the road and could feel the floor of the vehicle turning red hot as it scraped along the road.
“The potholes around here are bad but nothing could be that bad,” said one passenger.
Police – who say the stranded bus caused a three-hour tailback in rush hour traffic – explained: “The driver may now face charges of endangering public safety.”
the next best thing to jelly wrestling….
A Chinese theme park is basking in the glory of a mud festival, which attracted thousands of visitors.
The Mud Park at Jiushan Island, eastern China’s Zhejiang province, held the annual mud carnival and participants were able to wrestle, ski and even enjoy tug-of-war in the mud.

THE Doggie Boob Scarf!
Only for those with that “special” sense of humor!
Can be made for any breed of dog, large or small.
When you pay, please let me know the breed of your dog, and their measurement from the top of their head to the floor.
Made from super soft fleece, lightly stuffed with poly-fil to give shape, this will make your pooch amazingly funny with NO scratchies! I have stitched this right above the breasts so that the scarf will easily slip over their heads, and ensures it will stay on!

There were red-faces at BBC Online recently, when they ran an article about the speaking clock turning 75 — but accidentally forgot the ‘l’ in the word clock.
Yup, this meant their story looked like it was all about a 75-year-old speaking… well you can work it out can’t you?
Unsurprisingly, the rather rude blunder resulted in the story proving somewhat more popular online than might have been suspected and a flurry of online sharing.
And while we’re sympathetic to whoever made the error we couldn’t help smirking at some of the “at the third stroke,” and “cometh the hour” type jokes we saw on Twitter.
A spokesperson for the BBC said the ‘speaking cock’ headline had been changed to ‘speaking clock’ soon after the story was published, telling The Sun: “It was a typo that was quickly spotted and corrected.”
Luckily the Beeb hadn’t done something stupid like print 3.5 million stamps with a phone number to a sex line rather than one to order more stamps.
For those more interested in the actual ‘clock turns 75’ news, the 1936 creation was the first pre-recorded information service in the UK provided through telephones, and the first voice was that of Jane Cain.
