Twitter users can now specify a location for their tweets, including any of the World Cup stadia, so that other users can browse, say, all the chatter coming out of Soccer City during the World Cup final next month.

MavericKids vol 3

How can a child learn to read if they don't have a book?

For every copy sold we will donate a copy to Gift of The Givers for children in need of reading support.
