Today on In Case You Missed It: Scientists filmed young Hawaiian crows and discovered that they're so smart, they figured out how to use tools to get food without ever having been taught by adult crows. There are very few Alala in the world, but some are about to be released back into the wild so researchers are excited they'll bring their stick engineering ways with them.

Johns Hopkins University researchers used a light to restart mouse hearts, which works due to embedded light-sensitive proteins rather than the volts of power currently used for similar jobs. Human trials for patients at risk of arrhythmia are still at least five years away.
