Neil Armstrong, first man to walk on the moon, dies at 82

Neil Armstrong Walk on Moon

He was one of the most fitness men in America, that was able to survive a journey to the moon and back and live to tell the tale, Neil Armstrong. On 1969, he was the first man to step on the moon, making history. Therefore, I wish I would never have to write this post, telling his death. With that in mind, I will report to you that Neil Armstrong died on August 25th 2012 from heart complications, marking another point in history. So all you folks feeling old, hearing about the first landing on the moon, you might be feeling right as your watching a chapter close in history forever.

Chemical sensors will sense plants cries for help and save $33 Billion annually

Whenever you go down to the store and look at vegetable/fruit products you have to choose between taking the organic one, or paying less. In other words, you have to make a choice; health vs price. With this in mind, a new technology developed at the University of Georgia, will help save the world and sense plants cries for help. This will let farmers use only pesticide on plants that are being attacked without making them spray it on all their stock. If you convert this into money, it will save the whole world annually $33 billion and make organic food available for the masses.

United Nations tries to control the Internet, US refuses

English: Emblem of the United Nations. Color i...

As the internet keeps on growing in and out in virtually everyplace on the planet, more and more countries are trying to get control of it to protect their interests. Lucky for us, the US is always there protecting us from SOPAs to PIPAs. Now Russia and other countries want the US to hand over ICANN and other non-profit internet organizations to the UN. That way it will become easier to censor the internet as they don’t have to ask the US but a bunch of countries that are some made up of anti-democratic nations. Let’s thank the United States for saving the day, again.
