School Says It Will Report Parents Whose Kids Play Violent Games
A school district in Cheshire, England is making news after informing parents that they’ll turn them over to both the police and social workers if they find out their kids are playing games that are rated 18 and over.
The school told parents such games can lead to over-sexualized behavior and other issues. This would include popular games such as Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty. Parents were also warned against letting children have access to social media. The school did not mention what steps it would take if children were found to be watching unsuitable movies, listening to explicit music or reading age-inappropriate books.
Amazon Offers Home Services
Amazon is adding home services to the long list of things they sell online. Need a house cleaner? A handy man? A plumber? Well, you can now order them up online. Put in your ZIP code, add the service to your cart and then schedule a time that works for you.
Amazon will then dispatch the provider to your house. In addition to things like wiring and home theater installation, you can also arrange music and exercise lessons, local moving and most intriguingly, a goat grazing service.
I cannot help but imagine the goats being delivered to graze on my lawn by the Amazon drones.
