From Emory Report: by David Payne. An oasis is taking shape amid the ongoing construction related to the Emory Village roundabout and streetscape improvements. The roadway for the new roundabout will open space that is currently covered in asphalt for a new "pocket park" adjacent to the Chevron gas station and North Oxford Road. The small park -- approximately 8,300 square feet –- will be one of the newly created public spaces in the revitalized Village.

Of possible interest from Emory's IT division: While websites designed for social networking are not new, they have continued to grow and change over time. They help people not only keep in touch with each other, but also with organizations and activities that interest them. They have also become a new ground for scams and stalkers.
