The new math

Calculus only makes you feel like a zombie: In a new tongue-in-cheek novel called “Zombies and Calculus,” a small band of geeks uses math to fend off a zombie invasion at a private liberal arts college.

Tuns out that non- zombies also are thwarted by numbers at private colleges — namely, the number $45,000, which is the average annual cost.

Supersizasaur: Scientists studying the fossilized bones of an enormous dinosaur have given it an appropriately colossal name: Dreadnoughtus.

Unlike other dinosaurs, which died out when a huge space object slammed into Earth, these big boys are believed to have been done in by the absence of mobility scooters in the late Jurassic period.

The power of advertising: Yelp can legally lower or raise the rating of a business depending on whether it advertises with the online review site, a court has ruled.

Which proves that a business plan can be based on a sturdy foundation of anonymous comments like WORST MEAL EVER!!!! didnt stop puking 4 days!!!!
