Gene Hackman

Gene Hackman is a Hollywood legend and Academy Award winner until he retired early.
While he was still in demand in the early 2000s, and repeatedly asked to return to acting, he has shown no interest in a return and has instead turned his attention to becoming a successful author.
With five historical fiction novels under his belt, his love for writing continues and while he has not ruled out a return, his age now makes it very unlikely.

Cropland

Farmland in the USA is known to be a good investment if you bought it a decade ago.
In 2007, it was an average of $2,500 an acre to buy.
By 2011, it rose to $3,000 an acre.
In 2021, the average acre cost $4,500 to purchase.

Mexican Internet

Around 35 million Mexicans struggle to get access to internet connections.
As a result, some entrepreneurial people have taken to buying internet from a satellite company like StarGo and then re-selling that connection to multiple homes.
These internet dealers pay 1,000 pesos ($48) a month from StarGo and then charge all their neighbours 5 pesos ($0.25) an hour each, to log on and use it.

Porpoises

A research study found that Porpoises were 65-80% more likely to try and avoid an area where offshore tidal or wind turbines were located than they were if the turbines were not there. Most were found to stay at least 150 meters from a turbine.
