Spending a huge amount of money on a luxury car like a Mercedes and then adding thousands more on its beautification with a precious metal or gemstones is indeed a matter of concern that needs your attention. We bring you the jaw dropping luxury Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG all wrapped in gold that proved to be a real head-turner at the “Bling on Wheels Show” in Dubai. However, there is no word on what amount was thrashed on the car to get the paint job done, but the flashy gold-mirror finish will certainly make your eyes sore when you take a closer look on a sunny day.

I found an article on the Tennessean that explains it a little better, heres a snippet of the article. You can find the full article here on the Tennessean .
The more college credit hours students sign up for, the more tuition they will pay, the Tennessee Board of Regents decided Thursday.
Currently, students at the universities and community colleges in the Board of Regents system pay a flat rate for full-time tuition, regardless of the actual number of classes they take. Students could take four classes, about 12 credit hours of work, or six classes, about 18 credit hours, and pay the same fee.
Starting next school year, full-time students will be charged per credit hour, just as part-time students are charged. The board voted 9-4 to remove the tuition cap and will set the new tuition rates in June, board spokeswoman Mary Morgan said.

Q: So what is a black hole, Steve?
Steve Ritz: A black hole is one of the most interesting and unusual ideas in all of science. At its simplest, it is a region of space-time from which nothing, including light, can escape. Once something has fallen into or is within that region, it can no longer come outside.
Q: But what is it really? I don't get it.
Ritz: You mean how could that happen? Or what is it?
Q: I mean, is it a region? Is it an object? What is it?
Ritz: Right, right. Well, let me explain, and you tell me whether you think it is an object or not. You are familiar with the idea that what goes up must come down. Imagine I have a tennis ball and I throw it up. It is going to go up, slow down, turn around, and come back down. The reason for that is gravity due to the Earth. Now, if I throw that tennis ball really fast, at something like seven miles a second, it will not come back. It will be able to escape [Earth's gravity into space].
Now, imagine that we are on a more massive or more dense planet, so we are in a region where gravity is much stronger than we are used to here. You throw something up, it is clearly going to turn around and come back down, so you have to launch it faster [if you want it to escape]. Imagine continuing to increase the strength of the gravity in that region of space and time, and the speed at which you have to launch something just to escape approaches or even exceeds the speed of light. At that point the escape velocity will be larger than the speed of light, and that means that nothing can escape. That means anything within that region will always stay within that region; it is confined there.
Q: I thought light didn't have any mass.
Ritz: Right, but what I said was something had to move at a certain speed to get—
Q: But we are talking about gravity.
Ritz: Right, okay. Let's talk for a minute about our understanding of gravity, since Einstein's general relativity is really at the heart of all this.
