Signs of the times

Just because everything is different doesn't mean anything has changed. ~ Irene Peter
• Tiger Woods' ex-wife bought a $12.3 million, 17,000 sq. ft., oceanfront Florida mansion with eight bathrooms, and then had it bulldozed.

• Some have predicted the demise of Moore’s law, which says that the number of transistors that can be squeezed onto an integrated circuit doubles every two years. But it has been given new life by the development in Australia of a wire just 4 atoms wide and 1 atom tall, which will facilitate more miniaturization and much more powerful computers.

• A new Illinois law lets people salvage pelts or even food from roadkill.

• When historians trace the decline and fall of western civilization, microwaveable slippers are bound to mark an acceleration of decadence.

A new GPS-enabled dog or cat collar will send an text or email to your smartphone if your pet wanders outside of a prescribed zone.

• Montreal-based web startup wants to give university students more time to party by outsourcing their academic assignments to freelance professional writers with graduate degrees.

  1. I totally agree with the last one point! There are lots of custom writing companies that may do such a hard task as writing for you. Definitely, it won't be free of charge, but I guess it's much better to pas somebody to write your essay professionaly than doing it by yourself, especially if you are not keen on completing wtiting assignements.
