John McWhorter: Txtng is killing language. JK!!!
Texting is my view is the equivalent of shorthand writing, your not writing a text to tell a story. That's what emails are for, its a quick note and sixteen year old girls don't feel like putting punctuation on every text while they talk about some boy for five hours, it's not practical and not to mention irritating. As a man in his late twenties, when I write a text message, its short, simple and to the point. No time for punctuation cause I'm on the move. But in the end, it's about tolerance, just because someone doesn't text like you or the way you want doesn't mean they should blah blah blah, and in humanities past we have proven we have a problem with tolerance, on every subject! So why don't we let this one slide lol.

Daphne Bavelier: Your brain on video games
While i do agree that some games are beneficial for your health, lighting zombies on fire and blowing them up... not so much. Now puzzle games on the other hand... (I'm not referring to playing Tetris or some math game.) Tomb Raider would be the first game that comes to mind, while the story and appeal is there, through out much of the series you encounter puzzles that you must solve in order to advance. The example that comes to mind would be in one part you have two jugs of water, one that is three liters and one that is five liters. The point of the puzzle is to keep combining the jugs until you end up with four liters. While it's simple, it makes you use your brain and yet your entertained. That's a rather quick example of using games to progress peoples mind with puzzles, yet managing multitasking and vision with the action side of it, while being entertained by a gorgeous brunette doing flips to save the world from certain doom. Combining chocolate and broccoli can be done if it is not stunted by greed and is support by original creative ideas.
