WATCH: Rand Paul boils Dr. Fauci’s coronavirus response down to ‘we can’t do this, we can’t do that’
A Senate hearing over the nation's coronavirus response got pretty heated on Tuesday, with Sen. Rand Paul questioning whether the country's top infectious disease experts have been doing more harm than good during the pandemic. It is a fatal conceit to believe any one person or small group of people has the knowledge necessary to direct an economy or dictate public health behavior,” the Republican and libertarian from Kentucky said during the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing. We shouldn't presume that a group of experts somehow knows what's best for everyone.

A commonly held belief among dog owners is that if they want to know how old their pet is, they simply have to times its age by seven. Then, it can be decided whether man's best friend is acting up because it is a naughty teenager - or simply due to poor training. However, new research has found that this method is not based on science, and our pooches may be far 'older' than previously believed. As people, and animals, age, the number and placement of methyl groups in the genome change. By mapping these, scientists can tell the age of an organism. The researchers from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine used blood samples from 105 Labrador retrievers to accurately work out how quickly the breed ages. The study, published in Cell Systems, found the comparison is not a 1:7 ratio over time. Especially when dogs are young, they age rapidly compared to humans. A one-year-old dog is similar to a 30-year-old human. A four-year-old dog is similar to a 52-year-old human. Then by seven years old, dog aging slows, and a 12-year-old dog is 70 in human years.
