Background : In this era of rapid technical advancement, there are growing debates around the idea of nanotechnology, which are both timely and controversial. Nanotechnology materials are being utilized in our daily lives in many ways, often without consumer knowledge. Due to the explosion of nanotechnology applications, there is a necessity to update school science curricula by integrating nanotechnology-related concepts that are both relevant and meaningful to students. The integration of nanotechnology in school science curricula comes in response to nanoscientific development and our mission as educators to instill and arouse students’ curiosity in learning about both what is and what will be more dominantly occupying the marketplace. Purpose : The purpose of this review was to set a baseline for the current work being conducted in moving nanotechnology-based activities into the school science setting. Design and methods: The review was implemented by searching LexisNexis Academic, EBSCOhost, Academic Search Complete, Education Search Complete as well as Google Scholar using search terms of nanotechnology, nanotechnology in schools, nanotechnology activities, history of nanotechnology, implications of nanotechnology, issues of nanotechnology and related combinations with nanotechnology as a consistent keyword. Returned articles were categorized by thematic content with primary and seminal work being given priority for inclusion. Conclusions : Current literature in the area of nanotechnology integration into school science curricula presented seven key categories of discussion: the origins of nanotechnology, challenges for educational implementation, currently available school activities, current consumer product applications, ethical issues, recommendations for educational policy, and implications of nanotechnology. There is limited availability of school-based activities. There are strong proponents for including nanotechnology in school science curricula. However, barriers to that inclusion are both real and perceived and are consistent with barriers reported for including other new science topics in the curricula, such as time, curricular and cognitive overload, and inclusion on assessment

Police were reportedly called to her Midtown Manhattan apartment after being alerted by a doorman that someone was smoking marijuana in the lobby.
According to some reports, by the time police arrived, she had returned to her 36th-floor apartment. When officers knocked on her door, they saw a bong, which Bynes allegedly grabbed and threw out the window. The police said they could smell marijuana and see smoke in her apartment.
She is said to be charged with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.
TMZ reported that she responded to the arrest by "kicking and screaming" and "yelling 'Don't you know who I am?'"

Bynes has been a tabloid fixture for the past several months due to her erratic behavior and legal woes, which have included an arrest for drunk driving as well as two alleged hit-and-run incidents.
In June, she tweeted that President Obama should "fire the cop who arrested" her because she does not drink or "hit and run."
She also has made headlines over her pronouncements of quitting acting. Sources told THR last year the actress became unhappy with the direction of her work. According to sources, she chafed at her image as an innocent teen star and began working to distance herself from it.

Eugene Maraventano, who planned to kill himself after killing his wife, wondered what would become of his son, Bryan Maraventano, 27,bjd shoes, after his suicide, explaining that his son played video games all day and had no girlfriend or job, according to a court record filed by police. Bryan Maraventano lived with his parents

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- A man charged with fatally stabbing his wife and adult son in their suburban Phoenix home told investigators he carried out the killings out of a fear he had given his wife HIV from prostitutes he used to frequent and out of concern about what would become of his jobless son afterward.
Investigators said in court records that Eugene Maraventano, 64, believed his wife, Janet Maraventano, 63, was ill and feared she might test positive for cancer or a disease he had given her from prostitutes he slept with when he worked for a rail line in New York.
Eugene Maraventano, who planned to kill himself after killing his wife, wondered what would become of his son, Bryan Maraventano, 27, after his suicide, explaining that his son played video games all day and had no girlfriend or job, according to a court record filed by police. Bryan Maraventano lived with his parents.
Eugene Maraventano made several unsuccessful suicide attempts after the killings and called authorities Saturday to say he had carried out the stabbing deaths a few days earlier, police said.
"I killed my wife and I killed my son," the police document quotes Maraventano as telling a dispatcher.
Maraventano acknowledged to getting a 14-inch knife from the kitchen of his two-story stucco home in Goodyear, going into the upstairs master bedroom where he stabbed his sleeping wife twice and then attacked his son after the son answered a knock on his bedroom door from his father, according to the police record. The knife was found on the night stand in the master bedroom.
Maraventano was treated at a hospital for injuries he suffered during his suicide attempts and is now in jail on a $2 million bond.
It's unclear whether Maraventano has an attorney or whether Janet Maraventano had any ailments that her husband said he was worried about.
Maraventano told investigators that he and his wife hadn't been fighting the night of the killing.
