    An Australian company has lifted the glass cloche on a meatball made of lab-grown cultured meat using the genetic sequence from the long-extinct mammoth. The high-tech treat isn't available to eat yet. The startup says it is meant to fire up public debate about cultivated meat. Also called cultured or cell-based meat, it is made from animal cells. Livestock doesn’t need to be killed to produce it – which advocates say is better not just for the animals but also for the environment.

The trial in Minneapolis is expected to last around three weeks.

On social media, the Casper woman posted details including competing in a bike race and visiting a butterfly garden but showed no anti-abortion views.
