MOSCOW - A perfectly preserved woolly mammoth carcass with liquid blood has been found on a remote Arctic island, fueling hopes of cloning the Ice Age animal, Russian scientists said Thursday. The carcass was in such good shape because its lower part was stuck in pure ice, said Semyon Grigoryev, the head of the Mammoth Museum, who led the expedition into the Lyakhovsky Islands off the Siberian coast. "The blood is very dark, it was found in ice cavities below the belly and when we broke these cavities with a pole pick, the blood came running out," he said in a statement released by the North-Eastern Federal University in Yakutsk, which sent the team.

More than 100 vials containing blood washed ashore from Newark Bay over the weekend and were turned over to the state Department of Health, police said yesterday. Two boys found about 40 vials filled with blood Sunday afternoon and placed them in garbage cans, Bayonne police Chief James F. Sisk said. The boys later decided it would be best to notify police, he said. Police retrieved the vials from the garbage, and after examining the bay shore and the water, they found more vials, bringing the total to 105, Sisk said.

When a playwright names a character Hester, the theatergoer is put on notice to look for parallels between the play and Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter. And you don't have to be much of a literary sleuth to find them in In the Blood, the engrossing in-your-face play by Suzan-Lori Parks. She makes the connection between Nathaniel Hawthorne's Hester Prynne, the mother who bears an out-of-wedlock child and is condemned by those in her colonial Massachusetts Puritan community, and her Hester in the opening scene.

The region's blood shortage - especially the shortage of Group O blood - has eased enough that hospitals which had been forced to postpone elective surgery are beginning to schedule operations again. But the shortage, while eased, is not over. The Penn-Jersey Region of American Red Cross Blood Services reports that while Group O blood is available to hospitals which order it to support surgery, there is not enough to allow them to rebuild hospital inventories. "We'd like to thank people for being really responsive to the crisis," said spokeswoman Susan Snyder.

Drops of blood lined the hallways last week at East High School. Snipped from sheets of red construction paper, the giant cutouts led the way to the back of the school, where donors lined up to part with a pint at the annual fall blood drive. "I don't know who came up with the idea," said Laura Davis, a senior who helped coordinate the two-day event. "We've always used the blood drips. " Organized by a dozen juniors and seniors at East, the drive drew more than 100 student volunteers this year, Davis said.

Critics since the birth of Broadway have asked what makes for the perfect musical. How about a leading man who cuts off his hand with a chainsaw, plugs his stump into the handle, and uses it to hack his way through a horde of the evil undead? Or a heroine who is initiated into the Inferno's most exclusive supper club, the Demon Army, by having unprotected sex with a randy tree? And what musical would be complete without a stage setup that pumps buckets of blood onto the audience?

It's still summertime. Summer brings with it many happy times filled with picnics and trips to the shore and fun in the sun. Summer also brings with it the promise of the annual blood shortages. People just don't give blood. Why? I, in my efforts to get people to donate blood at work, have come across many "reasons" why we don't give blood. Among them: "Oh, I don't give blood!" or "Oh, it might hurt!" or "Nobody else is getting my blood!" or "I'm afraid I'll get AIDS!" Well guess what folks?

Reagan's son Michael condemned the auction, but said he was confident it was not his father's blood.

CHICAGO - Boy or girl? A simple blood test for mothers-to-be can answer that question with surprising accuracy at about seven weeks, a research analysis published in today's Journal of the American Medical Association has found. Though not widely offered by U.S. doctors, gender-detecting blood tests have been sold online to consumers for the past few years. Their promises of early and accurate results prompted genetics researchers to take a closer look. They analyzed 57 published studies of gender-testing done in rigorous research or academic settings.

SAN DIEGO - Kris Bryant scanned the National League clubhouse before the 87th All-Star Game, and the 24-year-old Cubs star saw colors. Bright colors. The players' cleats were orange and lime green, one sign of how Bryant said his generation is "way different. " Baseball does not reward individuality, but as dozens of the game's best young players gathered this week in California, they vowed to change it. It is difficult to remember a time with such a strong group of budding superstars all at once, and it was on display Tuesday in the American League's 4-2 win at Petco Park.

Most women with ovarian cancer get inadequate treatment that cuts their survival short. Experts keep lamenting this well-known problem. This spring, for example, a major report by the Institute of Medicine said that although women who receive care according to national guidelines have "improved survival, less than one-half of women with ovarian cancer receive such care. " What the report didn't say is that, since 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved two sophisticated blood tests that can help women get the optimal surgery for ovarian cancer.

Pennsylvania's senators and local members of Congress are pressing the Navy to fund blood testing for residents affected by water contamination around former naval air bases in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. That request Tuesday - prompted by health concerns over chemicals that leaked into water supplies, and are linked to cancer and reproductive issues - came on the same day that the consumer advocate Erin Brockovich and a New York-based law firm announced that they would investigate the drinking-water issues in the area.

When police arrived to investigate reports of a stabbing at a Franconia meatpacking plant in February 2015, they simply followed the blood. A crimson trail ran through the plant, out a door, and across the snow into a shed. "The trail was pretty extensive," Montgomery County Detective Ed Schikel said. Schikel was among the first witnesses called as trial opened Tuesday in Norristown for the man they found in that shed, Peter Jok Atem. Prosecutors say Atem, 34, stabbed a co-worker, Danny Vasquez, 25, to death with a 41/2-inch butterfly knife.

Editor's note: Mike Natter, a medical student at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, frequently takes notes in the form of cartoons to make what he's learning more memorable. Here's how he captured, in pictures and words, a scenario he composed from his textbooks and patients he's seen during family medicine clinical rotation. Alarmed at seeing blood in the toilet after a bowel movement, a man in his late 50's went to see his family doctor. He was in no pain, and had neither nausea nor vomiting, but he was chronically constipated.

When evaluating lower gastrointestinal bleeding, it is important to rule out the most dangerous potential causes - such as colorectal cancer . All adults over 50 should have a screening colonoscopy every 10 years, more often if they have a history of polyps. Another possible cause of blood in the stool is inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's or ulcerative colitis), which is an inflammation of all or part of the gastrointestinal tract. Diverticular disease , small out-pouchings of colonic tissue that may become inflamed, can also cause bleeding.

Nieto, her live-in boyfriend, who had blood on his arms and clothing, was arrested.

The water may now be safe to drink, but concerns persist about the impact of tainted wells near former military bases in Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Officials said Thursday that the Pennsylvania Department of Health would launch a regional cancer study and was considering blood tests for residents near wells in Horsham and Warminster found to have been contaminated by base firefighting foams. The chemicals have been linked to cancer and reproductive issues. "Quite frankly, nobody knows what the long-term effects are at this point," Will Freeman, a legislative specialist with the Department of Health, said at a meeting of local, state, and federal officials led by State Sen. Stewart Greenleaf (R., Montgomery)
