Life inside a (Spectacular) Fish Bowl atop the Hollywood Hills | Modern|Bungalow
Famed photographer Julius Shulman nailed it when he snapped the indelible image of two women lounging casually (and seemingly impossibly) within a stunning glass house nestled high in the hills overlooking the shimmering lights of Los Angeles.

Gene therapy – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gene therapy is the insertion, alteration, or removal of genes within an individual’s cells and biological tissues to treat disease. It is a technique for correcting defective genes that are responsible for disease development. The most common form of gene therapy involves the insertion of functional genes into an unspecified genomic location in order to replace a mutated gene, but other forms involve directly correcting the mutation or modifying normal gene that enables a viral infection. Although the technology is still in its infancy, it has been used with some success.
