Spider-Man rejoined the Marvel fold
http://goo.gl/rS7McT
Sony will co-produce the next Spider-Man movie with Disney’s Marvel Studios, ending a corporate feud that kept the webslinger largely isolated from his crossover-happy comic book brethren. Crucially, Sony will retain the rights to Spider-Man, as studios remain heavily reliant on their stables of superheros.

In 3 more months Apple will have enough cash to buy Chevron
Apple has $178 billion in cash and cash equivalents. Apple made $18 billion in profit in the 3 months of 2014. Chevron is trading at $196 billion.

Apple seems on track to continue massive iPhone sales in China through 2015. Apple 74.5 million iPhones in the 4th quarter of 2014 worldwide.

By the end of the year, Apple is on track to being able to purchase Walmart ($239 billion) for all cash.

Samsung only has a market valuation of $227 billion. Of course South Korea would never permit that purchase and anti-trust laws would also block it.

Currently there are only sixteen of the top US companies that are too expensive for Apple to buy for cash If Apple keeps up the profit pace and maintains margins then by the end of 2016 all companies below $340 billion in valuation would be a possible cash purchase.

San Francisco Could Have Its First Rainless January in 165 Years
http://goo.gl/DtaZ3V
Barring last-minute showers, California will soon mark another milestone in the miserable annals of drought: the first January in San Francisco with no measurable precipitation in 165 years of record-keeping.

And it's certainly looking like the city will see its driest-known January. The weather through Sunday, February 1, is expected to be dry, according to forecasts. That dehydration jibes with what the region has experienced lately: an abnormal rash of heat and aridity more reminiscent of summer.

The bone-dry month is the latest sign that, despite some winter rains, the West's struggle with historic drought is far from over. More than three-quarters of California remains locked in the most hardcore forms of drought. Though this year has just begun, the media have had plenty to talk about: a SoCal water district is giving money to people who replace water-intensive grass with with powdered granite; the state's agricultural industry is predicted to lose $1.5 billion this year; harsh weather is changing the physical makeup of forests, making them super-susceptible to wildfires.

Yes, but we do not commit aggression on one religion is not to have fun and also our Propret .You have to look for the real of islam About the life of the Propret He love everyone  en non-Muslims because the religion does not force anyone to believe what you believe in your religion and our religion. We believe Jesus is also a messenger from God, we can not mock him cherish.
