This week we look find out how prophecy predicts the Pope’s resignation could signal the destruction of Rome, we reflect on the Pope’s use of Twitter, discover when 4G phones are going to happen – and if the networks are going to continue to rip us off, as well as hear about how school kids are standing up for LGBT people. And more!
