Signs of the times

Just because everything is different doesn't mean anything has changed. ~ Irene Peter
• By 2050, we'll live in a world with robot prostitutes, according to a University of Wellington (New Zealand) study.

• Scientists at MIT have developed a new process of creating glass that is self-cleaning, has no reflections, and resists fogging and glare. Water bounces off.

• Young women today are more likely than young men to say a high-paying career or profession is very important to them, says the Pew Research Center.

• Online dating websites are becoming more tightly focused on narrow interest groups. Farmers Only, is aimed at rural lonely hearts, while The Atlasphere connects Ayn Rand fans, and EquestrianCupid will find you a sweetheart for those happy trails.

• Despite health warnings, more Ontario teenagers are using tanning beds, according to a new Ipsos Reid poll.

• A mysterious fossil that has evoked images of a sea monster roaming the shallow waters of prehistoric Cincinnati has scientists baffled as to as to what kind of creature (or sea plant) it was.

    Somehow when rhey said the first A.I. would roll aff the assembly line about 2050 I didn't think it would be a sex toy. HOWEVER, that is better than a soldier/killing machine.
