A new blood test designed to detect eight common types of cancer is showing excitingly positive results in early trials. Developed by a team led by researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, the test tracks two different types of biomarkers that can signal the presence of the disease.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. II actor and former Muscle & Fitness cover star has successfully made the transition from WWE to Hollywood—sound like someone we know? Cough, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, cough—and he’s not looking back.
Bautista has shown some real talent on screen while playing both heroes and villains—his Spectre baddie was one of our 25 most physically dominating movie bad guys of all time—but his role as Drax in Guardians has really put him in the spotlight. Bautista showed off his comedy skills as the alien warrior who takes all things seriously—even sarcasm—and he’s made a perfect foil for Chris Pratt, who plays team leader Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord.
But no matter what Bautista does on-screen it won’t take away this fact: He’s as jacked as anyone in Hollywood and enjoys showing it off on social media.

Stalkers worldwide are rejoicing, as Instagram just added a new “Activity Status” section that informs your friends and followers to “see when you were last active” on the app.
The Facebook-owned platform now incorporates the same feature first found on Facebook Messenger, and the activity status is only visible in direct messages, which now displays a line indicating the last time a user was active underneath their username.
If you’re panicking right this moment, Instagram has also given users the option to toggle off their activity status visible to everyone. This can be enabled by going to Instagram’s app settings, scroll down until you see the new ‘Show Activity Status’ option, and then toggle the feature off. Unfortunately, turning this feature off means you won’t be able to see other users’ last activity either.

Despite the concern, Microsoft is not abandoning Cortana. In fact, the emerging AI front-end will only go deeper into Windows 10 starting with Windows Core OS.
With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) wrapping recently many people have been worried about Microsoft’s Cortana assistant. After all, Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s smart services dominated the show with plenty of new product announcements and – more importantly – large partnerships with home accessory makers (notably absent: Apple).
Despite that, however, Microsoft did have some big announcements including Synaptics and Qualcomm for reference boards and integration into home products. The Qualcomm announcement is significant because it lets manufacturers of smart home devices add Cortana without any work – it comes built into the reference board.
