And that's troubling news.  According to reports; federal officials, and officials at one Vermont power plant Russia code belonging to what is believed to be an elite group of hackers has surfaced in a laptop found on site.    Officials say that the laptop wasn't hooked up to anything, but, it appears that there was an attempt to at least get the code near the power grid in Vermont.

The annual Honours List is here, and, some of the names have people talking.  This time particularly Mark Lowcock, the man, who  infamously decided to put an airport on St Helena knowing that the island had been deemed unsuitable for commercial flights.  According to the Honours List, he, still managed to make it onto the list despite massive public criticism in Britain specifically over the massive price tag that he wasted using tax-payer dollars. MP's blasted the honours announcement and Lowcock's department as "reprehensible and irresponsible"  for having "wreckessly" spent taxpayers money.   Additional reports note that the failed airport project proceeded despite warnings from aviation officials that it was impossible and not safe to land commercial flights on the remote Atlantic i...

A look inside Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is perhaps one major part of world history and British history, and will remain even after the Queen actually dies. But, how much do people actually know about the palace?  Let's dig deeper. In 2016... It was announced that the palace would undergo a massive 10 year rennovation costing British tax-payers hundreds of millions of pounds.  It was reported by The Daily News earlier this year that the rennovations would fix much needed components of the castle and its wiring most of which hasn't been done in about 60 or so years.  The 828,000 foot palace has more than 700 rooms an more bathrooms than we could imagine someone actually enjoying having to clean.
