Hundreds of thousands of Americans poisoned with permanent brain damage due to high levels of lead in city's drinking water gone undetected for decades.
Did you know... the Mad Hatter character from "Alice In Wonderland" is based on the tragic real-life cases of millions of people gone mad (ie. permanent brain damage) from wearing and/or producing hats, poisoned by mercury used in the manufacturing process of the hats, gone undiagnosed for several centuries!

LOL! Tell me about it, such fond nostalgic memories.
Since each new phone or tablet released by Apple is basically just a fancier version of the last one, it could potentially be difficult for the company to get consumers to buy the newer devices. The solution? Planned obsolescence: â€œThe policy of producing consumer goods that rapidly become obsolete and so require replacing, achieved by frequent changes in design, termination of the supply of spare parts, and the use of non-durable materialsâ€� (Oxford Dictionary).
The idea behind planned obsolescence is that manufacturers build a certain lifetime into a product, after which it will simply stop working, forcing consumers to buy replacement items. To be honest, if Apple was doing this, it would be a pretty smart business move. They launch new products periodically, and all of them are really just slightly fancier versions of their older models. People donâ€™t often need these products, they simply want them. They only become a â€œneedâ€� when their older models break or malfunction.
So, a clever business move, albeit an entirely unethical and devious one that would leave a bitter taste in the mouths of most Apple product fans.

Although Pradip seemed in better shape than Lim, he took several blows to the head during the match. The referee stopped the bout during the second round after Pradip was knocked down, and ended the match. Lim was awarded the victory by technical knockout.

We are in close contact with the medical staff at the hospital to ascertain the cause of death and request that during this difficult time we should come together and extend our support to Mr. Subramanianâ€™s family, friends and associates and refrain from any speculation.
An official press conference/statement will be held in due course.
Mr. Subramanianâ€™s project, the AFC Physique Championships (APC) which is scheduled for 24th September 2017 will be cancelled as a mark of respect.â€�
