Good paragraphs

As for Central Florida’s testing center, one of its most recent cheating cases had nothing to do with the Internet, cellphones or anything tech. A heavily tattooed student was found with notes written on his arm. He had blended them into his body art.
Find the whole article here. More:
No gum is allowed during an exam: chewing could disguise a student’s speaking into a hands-free cellphone to an accomplice outside.

The 228 computers that students use are recessed into desk tops so that anyone trying to photograph the screen — using, say, a pen with a hidden camera, in order to help a friend who will take the test later — is easy to spot.

Scratch paper is allowed — but it is stamped with the date and must be turned in later.

When a proctor sees something suspicious, he records the student’s real-time work at the computer and directs an overhead camera to zoom in, and both sets of images are burned onto a CD for evidence.

I've often thought about commercial property, but I'm always scared off by all of the vacant properties I see around. While the deals are probably there, I don't think I could handle the lack of cash flow that a vacant property might inflict upon me.

Not surprising to hear thisdesert safariDriving and texting you should be considered a criminal offense, just like drunk driving.
