The Procrastinator (some) Times Sunday 22th June Edition


EDITORIAL

Morning friends! This is going to be a super concise edition as this past week I was very busy with my graduation (: Hope you like it. Articles about Argentina and Venezuela in our News section. In Science & Technology, Pluto debate continue as it has been discovered that the planet(?) have several moons in regular orbit around it, and also one interesting article about the UK dream of a robot heaven. In Design, Business & Innovation, Ryan Bradley tries to understand Facebook lost generation of teens via Fast Company. In Culture & Entertainment, articles about video games and scholarships and watching TV on the gym. Come to think about it, this is a very geek edition. Finally, In Dog We Trust is great as usual and share with us how many words dogs actually understand.

Happy Sunday, happy reading and happy summer/winter solstice!
