SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – San Francisco’s water managers say there shouldn’t be water access issues in the event of a giant earthquake, now that they’ve completed billions of dollars in seismic upgrades to local reservoirs such as Crystal Springs Reservoir in San Mateo County.

As part of a $4.6 billion project, Lower Crystal Springs Dam has been raised three feet. The reservoir can hold another three billion gallons of water piped in from Hetch Hetchy, according to Ed Harrington, head of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

The game company responsible for filling your Facebook timeline and creating popular games such as Farmvile has money, and lots of it. And, over the past year they have been buying up smaller game developers left and right. But, Rovio-the power house that created the over night mega app Angry Birds– has declined Zynga even with a Batman movie pile of cash.

In a article published on Bloomberg business news site stated that Zynga offered MORE than $2 Billion to acquire the  Finnish Game Company, only to be declined.
