When Sophia Stockton ordered her textbook, “Understanding Terrorism: Challenges, Perspectives, and Issues,” she never expected to find $400 worth of cocaine within, but that’s exactly what she discovered.
Stockton is in her junior year of college in Olathe, Kansas, and wasn’t sure of exactly what was in the bag, but had her assumptions. After taking it to her local police station, they were able to confirm that she had in fact received a large amount of cocaine along with her textbook.
“He put some gloves on and put it in a plastic bag,”Stockton told KSCW. ”He took it back to test it and like 10 minutes later he came back and said, ‘Did you happen to order some cocaine with your textbook?’”
For a college student, Miss Stockton is pretty ignorant. I mean, at the very least, sell that shit. You’re obviously spending money on textbooks which cost an arm and a leg, might as well reap the benefits of the $400 worth of cocaine you have in your possession.

Amazon is now offering Textbook rental with Kindle. This will enable students to rent textbooks for the amount of time they need, and not over spend. I know when I was in college, I spent hundreds of dollars on books that I used very rarely. This new advantage is great, especially in our current economy and seeing as students are finding it difficult to find money to purchase the necessary tools to succeed in classes.
“Kindle Textbook Rental is a flexible and affordable way to read textbooks. You can rent for the minimum length, typically 30 days, and save up to 80% off the print list price. If you find you need your textbook longer, you can extend your rental by as little as 1 day as many times as you want and just pay for the added days.”

This is a great article and video segment about what The Brazilian government has approved for the Amazon. The people who live in the villages along the Amazon depend on the river and the land to survive. They are completely untouched by the outside world and would like to keep it that way.
Unfortunately, the Brazilian government is going to construct “massive hydro dams all along the Amazon.” They say in this article that “It’s shaping up as the world’s biggest ever environmental battle.”
The biggest fear here is that there could be bloodshed if neither side is willing to back down. The people from the villages will fight for their way of life and could end up getting killed for it. This must stop. Someone needs to step in and do something.
