The Pennsylvania PR executive’s account balance had swelled to a whopping $92,233,720,368,547,800. That’s $92 QUADRILLION (and change). Money that would make Reynolds — who also sells auto parts on eBay in his spare time — the richest man in the world by a long shot. Rich, as in more than a million times richer than Mexican telecom mogul Carlos Slim. And he’s worth $67 billion. Oh, if only. “It’s a curious thing.

That’s the message on CO2 generators sold by greenhouse supply companies across the United States and Canada. “1,500 ppm [of carbon dioxide] can be achieved… these generators automatically provide the carbon dioxide needed to meet maximum growing potential for only pennies a day,” the ad says.

Internet users are taking a fresh look at “privacy” search engines that do not store data or track online activity, in light of the flap over US government surveillance. While Google’s market share has not seen a noticeable dent, privacy search engines like US-based DuckDuckGo and European-based Ixquick have seen jumps in traffic from users seeking to limit their online tracks. “I think people are seeking out privacy alternatives,” said Gabriel Weinberg, founder of DuckDuckGo, an engine created in 2007, which does not store IP addresses or create profiles of users.

President Obama has appointed Muslims to high U.S. government positions, once declared America no longer Christian, is working on direct talks with the Taliban and has plans to hand over weapons to Muslims in Syria. He has also advocated for the “Arab Spring” movement that has put hard-line Islamic leaders in power in the Middle East.
