In November 2009, 4.3 million square feet of General Motors property lay idle. The constant humming of machines had vanished — the robots, who normally work tirelessly, were either gone or powered off. The plant, which can hold hundreds of workers, held only silence. Throw a financially ailing GM into the mix, and the situation did not look so great at the Orion Assembly Plant in Orion Township, Mich.

Each day, 450 robots are busy assembling parts and scurrying around, almost 2,000 people show up to work and 825 cars roll off the assembly line.

Amid all the noise and chaos of planes, cars and man-made machines is the sound of millions of creatures. The animals of the world have been singing their songs since the beginning of time, ranging from the soft chirp of a warbler to the ear-splitting scream of a puma; the click of a cricket to the moan of a whale.
The Oakland University Center for Multicultural Initiatives will be celebrating decades of African American history and culture in one month of activities this January and February in the annual African American Celebration Month.
It’s that time of year again. Or, that is, it is that kind of year again: election year. Enter cliché promises, flag-waving, red-herrings, bandwagons, the straw man, ad hominem, tu quoque and every other fallacy known to humankind. Expect new ones to arrive, too.

2012 will be a historic year for many reasons. Here are just a few: The London Games. Euro 2012 (I am Hispanic and I love soccer. What can I say?). The 2012 Presidential Election (this is big only for Americans. I suppose it is important to any governments that sponsor terrorism, too). The end of the world.
