Earthquakes caused by too much water extraction, and a dog cancer that has lived for millennia
After two mysterious earthquake swarms occurred under the Sea of Galilee, researchers found a relationship between these small quakes and the excessive extraction of groundwater.

Robert Anders, MD, PhD - Keeping Up With Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy and Biomarker Testing: Implications for Pathologists at the Forefront of the Emerging Precision Immuno-Oncology Era
Go online to PeerView.com/FJP860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Cancer immunotherapies are demonstrating remarkable clinical activity in an increasing number of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies. Reliable biomarkers are needed to guide clinical decisions regarding treatment selection and identification of patients who are most likely to benefit. Testing for programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression and the presence of DNA mismatch repair deficiencies (dMMR) or high levels of microsatellite instability (MSI-H) should presently be routinely done ...
