Barbie's New Book Gets SLAMMED By Parents Who Say It's Sexist! Find Out Why HERE!

Barbie is once again stirring up controversy, but this time it's because of a book!

At this point, we're not too surprised when we hear about a new Barbie toy rubbing parents the wrong way!

But when we heard her new book about her quest to become a computer engineer was stirring up controversy, we were a bit caught off guard!

At first glance, Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer seems like a harmless story of Barbie exploring the world of computer engineering! In fact, it's downright empowering when you think about it!

The only issue is Barbie comes across a few obstacles along the way, and she's only able to fix them with a little help from her MALE friends!

Mining Is Destroying The Great Wall of China!

mining-is-destroying-the-great-wall-of-china

Absolutely tragic that something with this much history would be destroyed so carelessly.

The Great Wall of China is apparently in big trouble, due to legal and illegal mining around the structure in a push to develop the country's resources, has lead parts of it - some as long as 100 miles - to literally crumble!

Scientists Engineer Bullet-Proof Skin!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueScience!

Bullet Proof vest

Forget bullet-proof vests! We want bullet-proof skin!

Dutch scientists have created a skin made with goat's milk packed with spider-silk proteins that is able to STOP bullets fired at reduced speeds!

Key word being "reduced", as the super-human skin can not withstand a bullet from a .22 caliber rifle shot yet, but maybe one day!

Researchers have already grown human skin around the strengthened material, but need more time to determine whether or not the bullet-proof skin can actually be engineered into humans.

We're totally picturing a genius, but troubled scientist begging his financiers for more money, which is being denied after one crucial test went wrong. Now he must be the first human test subject for the risky procedure which inadvertently turns him into a bullet-proof super villain bent on getting revenge against those who threatened his life's work!

If only science was actually THAT exciting! LOL!

Google Offers Engineer $3.5 Million In Stock To Stay Away From Facebook

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

google-offers-stock-to-employees.jpg

Wow!!

Google isn't messing around!!

The company is apparently going all out, making "extraordinary" efforts to stop their employees from wandering over to other companies such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and especially Facebook.

Sources say that the reason why some of the employees leave Google is because:

"Facebook is quietly telling people, never in writing, that there’s no reason their stock won’t hit $100 billion in total valuation over the next couple of years. No guarantees…but hey if you get 1/10 of 1%, that’s $100 million in stock. Now it’s a party."

Back in September, a Google engineer turned down an offer of a 15% pay raise and $500,000 in restricted stock to stay at Google, however, he still strayed and went to Facebook.

Google is apparently trying to make sure that doesn't happen again so they are now offering one of their precious engineers $3.5 million in their restricted stock.

The engineer has accepted Google's offer and will stay with the company.

Smart move.
