Secret Service denies vetting Trump Jr meeting
The president on Sunday said his eldest son was being set up by the Fake News Media. The allegations have cast a cloud over Mr Trump administration since he took office.

Para crear millones de mosquitos, Verily creó un robot capaz de criar un millón de éstos por semana.

Casi 13 millones de niños no fueron vacunados en 2016: ONU
Tanto la OMS como Unicef recordaron que la inmunización es una de las intervenciones de salud pública más exitosas y rentables.

El área de Fresno ha sido seleccionada a propósito debido a que la presencia de Aedes aegypti es común allí. Tal es el caso de una mujer que se convirtió en el primer paciente de Zika del condado de Fresno, al contagiarse del virus después de haber tenido relaciones sexuales con una persona que se infectó durante un viaje. El esfuerzo de Verily hace uso de un procedimiento automatizado de clasificación de sexo para asegurar que solo los machos sean liberados, porque estos no muerden a los humanos. El proyecto es una de las tantas iniciativas de diversas compañías que están ensayando modificar estos insectos y así poder eliminar esta terrible enfermedad. ¿Qué opinas del proyecto de Google para tratar de erradicar el Zika?
