(CBS/CNN) - A heads up before you snap a selfie with your teen.  It could be spreading head lice.  That's according to an expert who treats lice.  Health experts say lice can be spread from one person to the next when teens put their heads together.  See, lice don't fly and are only spread through head-to-head contact.  Parents are being told to check their children for lice weekly.

U.S. health officials are considering an experimental fertilization technique that makes it possible to create a baby from the DNA of three people.  A food and drug administration panel held two days of hearings on the procedure.  Scientists say it could prevent babies from inheriting genetic diseases, like muscular dystrophy.  Here's how it works: doctors remove defective genetic material from a mother's egg and replace it with healthy material from another woman.  The fertilized egg is then implanted in the mother.  Critics say it opens the door to creating so-called "designer babies."    

Remember the SAT, that dreaded college entrance exam?  You took the test, got into college and forgot about it.  The wall street journal reports that some employers are asking job candidates about their SAT scores and not just job seekers fresh out of college, even for senior management and sales candidates in their 40's and 50's.  

Justin Bieber has a new video making headlines, but this one is not for his music.  Miami-Dade police have released video of Justin Bieber from the night of his arrest.  The video shows Bieber at the Miami Beach police station taking what appears to be a sobriety test.  The singer and his friend Khalil Amir Sharief were arrested for drag racing January 23rd.  Bieber has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest, and driving with an expired license.
