Edward I of England, AKA Edward Longshanks (1239)

Edward became king upon the death of his father, Henry III, in 1272 but was not crowned until he returned from a crusade two years later.

Why were the remaining birds eventually relocated to Walt Disney World theme parkMore… Discuss

Cell phone theft is a costly and dangerous problem, and it is on the rise. It has become so prevalent, in fact, that it has even been given a catchy nickname: Apple-picking. Some US lawmakers believe that a “kill switch” that would render a mobile device inoperable if it were stolen would deter robbers and are therefore ramping up pressure on mobile phone makers to incorporate such a feature in their devices. The cell phone industry has faced criticism in the past for its apparent unwillingness to institute changes that would help combat theft.More… Discuss
