It’s an elegant way to avoid urban flooding: Lay down paving tiles that soak up rain and divert it from sewers to greenery. But that innovation, the Climate Tile, is just one of the problem-solving projects we’ve named the best engineering breakthroughs of 2018. There’s also a 3D printer slated to build affordable homes in impoverished areas, and a sea life sampler that lets biologists gather marine specimens without damaging their squishy bodies. Other “bests” are a bit more whimsical: a banana that grows in the cold, vegan scrambled eggs, and robots that turn backflips 60 feet in the air.
Pancho Campo is no stranger to international travel. A onetime Olympic tennis player, Campo spent much of his early career on the move. After he retired from the game, he went on to become a wine expert and established branches of his business in Florida and Spain, where he lives.

According to the governments, we must accept this new upgrade, by law, or be left behind the rest of the modern world. Forget about taking precautions. Humans must be able to download movies at faster and faster rates, lest we become a third world country.
When you cannot trust government for truth or transparency, there are other ways to discover them for yourself: the prophecies.
