Students leave college with an average $29,400 in loans.
The appeal of a $10,000 college degree is impossible to deny. Average tuition for a public university is more than $35,000 for four years. Students leave college with an average $29,400 in loans.

Chunks of this atom-thick material just one nanometer across can function as transistor
A leading contender to replace silicon as the basis for computing has made another step forward.
Transistors one atom thick and ten atoms wide have been made by UK researchers. They were carved from graphene, predicted by some to one day oust silicon as the basis of future computing.
A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) research study, released February 28, 2008, states that ten percent of adults are not getting sufficient rest or sleep every night. Chronic sleep loss and sleep disorders also raise the risk for additional health problems.
