In news this week California passes a bill banning the sale of cosmetics tested on animals and we bemoan the extinction of some bird species. In the final news story we discuss whether a puppy can save endangered owls.

Endoscopy basics is the main topic of this week. Mark and Brendan get excited and enthuse about all the places you can shove a metal tube into! We outline the basics of endoscopy for those wishing to get started. It’s fun, easy to start, and a lot more inexpensive than you think. As Arnie would say: “Do it, do it now!”


These 8 bird species are the first to be declared extinct this decade
