Science of the Week, 9/8/17

Here are some of the most interesting science articles I read this week:

Barbecue-crashing mosquitoes beware: new weapons are in the works

Dogs have self-awareness: the sniff test of self-recognition confirmed

Why many Russians have gladly agreed to online censorship

Have a good weekend, everyone, and see you Monday!
