Problem solved! At least until they patch the app itself.
 
This is a really sparse article. I think, and correct me if i am wrong here, but if you disable "Automatically Retrieve MMS messages" in the settings to Messenger or Hangouts then you should be fine.
Booby-trapped MMS messages and websites exploit flaw in heart of Android.

Playing with Hot Wheels cars and setting a new loop-the-loop record.

Even real engineers need to play with toys.

There's something about writing things down in your own words on paper that helps learning and retention.

Even now there are kids that don't know how to write OR type on a computer! That means they're really left behind on both the literary and digital divide. Covering both chasms is very important IMO.
 
“New evidence suggests that the links between handwriting and broader educational development run deep. Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information. In other words, it’s not just what we write that matters — but how."
Learning to write by hand has learning benefits that could be neglected if too much focus is put on keyboarding.

I find that writing helps me to remember things. I carry a notepad and pen around with me and would write something down when I want to remember something. I do use Google Keep as well to record details that I need to keep for a long time or in a bit that I would edit.

Hey +Joseph Kurachi Luk - can you confirm?
 
The Greatest School Bus In Japan
Kindergarten is a tough time for some kids. It's the first time that they are away from their mother or father for an extended period of time. To help ease the experience, Japanese kindergartens and pre-schools have cute, colorful buses.
The buses are supposed to hopefully make children want to ride them — and thus, go to school.

This Pikachu bus from an Osaka kindergarten does more than make kids want to ride it. No doubt some adults probably want to hitch one, too!

Aaaah! So my Microsoft Surface Pro 3 #SP3 fits nicely in the laptop compartment of my #Kata #3N1-22!

Plenty of space in the laptop compartment. You can store the PSU down in there too!

Well, you definitely don't come here for the decor or service. The food makes up for it though! It's been here for years and I remember coming here as a kid. Remember, Chinese food is always best when shared with others. The more people, the more variety you can get.

It's the PNE! Playland is always fun. Plenty of rides for the little ones and classic rides like the old wooden roller coaster for the big ones. The Star Trek exhibit is neat for trekkies, but photos not allowed in the exhibit. Lots of costumes, models and facts about Star Trek. Even have a timeline to put all the different series in sequence. Can have a long line to get in, so get there early. At least they show Star Trek movie while waiting.
