Pennis Lyon was a genetic train wreck. Cancer was ravaging his liver, lungs, bones and brain, and tests showed so many tumor mutations that drugs targeting one or two wouldn't do much good. It seemed like very bad news, yet his doctors were encouraged.
The reason: People with the most messed-up genes often are the ones who do best on treatments that enlist the immune system.
"These are the patients we used to be very depressed about," thinking they couldn't be helped, said Dr. Razelle Kurzrock at the University of California, San Diego. "Now when we see those types of patients, we're really excited," because there are so many ways for the immune system to recognize the cancer cells as abnormal.
Terrified shopper dodges death TWICE as glass mall roof collapses during 7.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico
A shopper in Mexico is lucky to be alive following the earthquake which struck yesterday afternoon, as this heart-stopping footage shows.
Video captured in Angelópolis Lifestyle Center, in the city of Puebla, shows how the woman cheats death twice in 20 seconds as the 7.1 magnitude quake hits.
She can be seen panicking as the quake starts, unsure of where to run before making her way into a large open area.
But moments later the glass roof above her head comes crashing down, with some large shards missing her by centimeters.
Fortunately the woman gathers her senses enough to flee, moments before a large pane comes crashing down where she was just standing.
Puebla is located just 40 miles from the epicenter of the earthquake, and 43 people are said to have died there.
A powerful 7.1 earthquake rocked central Mexico on Tuesday, collapsing homes and bridges across hundreds of miles, killing at least 217 people and sending thousands more fleeing into the streets screaming in a country still reeling from a deadly temblor that struck less than two weeks ago.
Entire apartment blocks swayed violently in the center of Mexico City, including in the historic districts of El Centro and Roma, crumbling balconies and causing huge cracks to appear on building facades.
Panic spread through the city's core; rescue vehicles raced toward damaged buildings, and neighbors took on heroic roles as rescuers.
Firefighters and police officers scrambled to pull survivors from a collapsed elementary and secondary school where children died.
"There are 22 bodies here — two are adults — 30 children are missing and eight other adults missing. And workers are continuing rescue efforts," President Enrique Peña Nieto announced Tuesday night.

President Trump has defied political conventions, challenged norms and upended traditions since he first rode down a gilded escalator at Trump Tower in mid-2015 and launched his improbable march to the White House.
On Sunday, he crossed another line: retweeting a doctored video from someone whose Twitter handle can't be repeated in a family newspaper, showing Trump striking Hillary Clinton in the back with a golf ball and knocking her down.
The reaction was predictable. Critics were outraged. Supporters were gleeful. And social media lit up like a Christmas tree.
Perhaps the morning broadside was just Trump’s way of hitting back, a reminder of his pugilistic instincts honed by the raucous ethos of reality TV. In recent days, Clinton has called him a “clear and present danger” to American democracy, and noted that she won 2.9 million more votes than he did on election day, as she touts her memoir of the 2016 election, “What Happened.”
When it comes to long term relationships,women go off the idea of having sex with their partners before men do, says the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyle.
But you probably already knew that, right?
It’s one of those things that everyone has a low-level awareness of - yet no-one had confirmed it until now. But confirm it they have. So the big question is: why?
Let's be clear - women aren’t less inherently sexual than men. Women, contrary to what you might have been told, don’t find it satisfying to grit their teeth through sex until they’ve produced children and then spend the rest of their lives faking a headache. That’s not what we want.
But it seems that is what many of us are lumped with. The most shocking part? Just how quickly we get bored. The research found that women who had been in a relationship for more than a year were getting fed up.
Legendary pro wrestling manager Bobby “the Brain” Heenan died Sunday from cancer complications at the age of 73, the WWE announced. Heenan was diagnosed with throat and tongue cancer in 2002 and spent the last several years battling the disease, including losing the ability to talk after multiple surgeries on his tongue and the reconstruction of his lower jaw.
Heenan, born Raymond Louis Heenan, is considered by most experts to be the greatest pro wrestling manager of all time.
Heenan came to nationwide prominence as the manager of Ray Stevens and Nick Bockwinkel in the American Wrestling Assn. He also managed Bockwinkel when he became the league’s heavyweight champion.
Wayne Rooney, the former England captain, has apologised for an "unforgivable lack of judgment" after pleading guilty to drink-driving.
The Everton striker was given a two-year driving ban and ordered to carry out unpaid community work after being caught three times the legal alcohol limit on a night out while his pregnant wife and their three sons were on holiday.
After admitting the charge on Monday morning, Rooney was also told to pay £170 - made up of prosecution costs and a victim surcharge. It is a figure he can earn by working just 12 minutes of his reported £150,000-a-week earnings.
The 31-year-old was stopped by police while driving a black Volkswagen Beetle belonging to Laura Simpson - a woman the court heard he had met while socialising with friends - in Wilmslow, Cheshire, at 2am on September 1.

Eight people are known to have died in the Keys during or because of Hurricane Irma, authorities said Wednesday.
Two people died in Key West; the other six in other parts of Monroe County.
“The deaths are both storm-related and due to to natural causes,” said Cammy Clark, the county’s public information officer.
Also, 40 people were injured during the storm.
Irma ripped through Cudjoe and Big Pine with end-of-the-world fury, destroying homes big and small.
Trailers were shredded, ocean waters rushed through the ground floor of beach-side houses and RVs were overturned, leaving much of the area ravaged almost beyond recognition.
“It’s been a nightmare,” said Mark Lum, 57, who rode out the powerful storm on Cudjoe Key, huddled with his dog Cruzan inside a concrete bunker-like bath house in the Venture Out development. “You live here in a resort, everything’s nice and pretty, and the next day it’s all gone.”
Hurricane Irma has destroyed a quarter of the homes in the Florida Keys and badly damaged many more, federal officials said Tuesday.
What? A cellphone in the bathroom? Do people really do that? If you're honest, you have probably taken yours with you to read something on Facebook or watch a video while spending some quality time alone in the bathroom. What you probably don't know is that you weren't really alone, and that you were bringing hitchhikers out with you on your phone.
The unfettered use of smartphones is creating a new problem. Bacteria that is normally only found in the restroom is being seen more and more elsewhere. Studies are showing that these bacteria are on both cell phones and hands, raising concerns as to how the bacteria got there. Listed below are the four most commonly found bacteria on cell phones.

The images of destruction and peril during Hurricane Irma have been hard to avoid, and the challenges are just beginning for those who evacuated or sheltered in place.
But there were also scenes of heroism and levity, many of which were shared widely on social media. These were some of the moments that offered people at least a small lift in difficult times.
The UN security council has unanimously ratcheted up sanctions on North Korea, imposing a ban on the country’s textile exports and a ceiling on the country’s imports of crude oil.
The vote for the sanctions, the ninth package of measures imposed by the UN Security Council on Pyongyang since 2006 for its nuclear and missile tests, came as a relief to US diplomats who had feared a Chinese abstention, which would have considerably blunted the impact of the new sanctions.
In late night negotiations on Sunday, the US considerably diluted its initial draft sanctions resolution, which would have imposed a complete oil embargo and a partial naval blockade, in an effort to win support from China and Russia.The final resolution adopted by the security council on Monday imposed a ban on oil condensates exports to the regime, capped refined petroleum exports at 2m barrels a year – cutting existing export levels by half – and maintaining international exports of crude oil to North Korea at existing levels, about 4m barrels a year. China supplies most of North Korea’s crude.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike has taken a new dimension - Pro and anti-government student's associations has turned on each other - The Unity Fountain in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja is the battle ground There is currently a clash going on between two factions of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) at the Unity Fountain in Abuja. A first group had assembled at the Unity Fountain to protest the ongoing strike action by ASUU when another group appeared to counter the protest. While the anti-strike group led by Haruna Kadiri urged the federal government to do all within its power to ensure that the ongoing strike by ASUU is called off, the second group led by Ade Abayomi said they are not at the fountain for a clash.
Abayomi who spoke to NAIJ.com said it is clear to everyone that Kadiri is not a student. “He has no admission letter, and we have said it times without number that due process must be followed,” Abayomi said.
He added that the faction had written to the federal government of the association's demand. He said a 21-day ultimatum had already been given to the government on the ongoing strike.
Meanwhile, NANS has given a 7-day ultimatum to the Niger state government over the health situation of one of its former leaders. In an emergency resolution issued in Abuja on Friday, September 1, the students body tasked the Niger State government as a matter of urgency, to take over the medical bill of Dauda Mohammed, a former president of NANS from Niger state.

Actress Meghan Markle is finally opening up about her private relationship with Prince Harry, but don't expect her to give you too much of a peek into what it's like dating a member of the royal family.
"We're a couple," Markle says in the October issue of Vanity Fair. "We're in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy."
The two have been dating for over a year after meeting through friends in July 2016. They've kept such a low profile that there isn't a clear public photo of the pair together.
The 36-year-old "Suits" actress says she isn't letting the whirlwind romance change much about her life.
