One of the greatest baseball players and a lifetime Chicago Cub, this gentleman left behind just enough money to pay for a modest burial.  Either he managed to spend down his wealth with prescient skill, or he had a humble retirement.  Since most professional athletes are broke three years after their careers end, I shall assume the latter.  He certainly gave the world more than he took from it.
Cubs great Ernie Banks had assets worth just $16,000 when he died, an attorney for the woman who cared for him during his final years said Tuesday in a contentious court appearance over his will that prompted a judge to demand details. Cook County Probate Judge James Riley gave caregiver Regina Rice 30 days to provide a full accounting of Banks' estate at the time of his death last month at age 83. Rice and Banks' estranged wife, Elizabeth Banks,...

According to this report, Windows Vista and RT are the two PC operating systems with the fewest vulnerabilities.  It is probably due to their "popularity"
It might come as something of a surprise, but Windows is more secure than not only Apple's iOS and OS X, but also Linux. I'll just let that sink in for a moment...

This fascinating and somewhat salacious article intends to pose a dilemma regarding American electronics equipment, specifically disc drives.  However, disc drives are not made in America.  They are mostly made in China, Thailand, and other parts of Asia.  Of course, two of the biggest disc manufacturers are headquartered America, Western Digital and Seagate.  However, the vast majority of their workforces are foreign.

The implication is that others may have made modifications to the disc drive firmware, too.  At this level, you can do almost anything to a machine, even have a hypervisor that runs the native OS as a client.  With that level of malware, one could monitor everything without the OS or the user knowing.  Pretty slick.  Once criminals understand how to use this exploit, the sky is the limit.
It's been known for a while that the NSA will intercept and bug equipment to spy on its soon-to-be owners, but the intellgency agency's techniques are ap

Born around the same time as my parents, Mr. Lloyd reminds me that they all started closer to the Civil War than to today.  He had success and faced hatred that most of us never have.  It is a poignant and humble story.
When his Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers hit the floor at the Edgerton Park Sports Arena in Rochester, New York, on Oct. 31, 1950, Earl Lloyd became the first black player to appear in an NBA game. "I stepped onto the court and the world kept spinning," Lloyd once said,...

This is an obvious ploy by rats to clear their name by rewriting history to pin this great disaster on defenseless gerbils.
For hundreds of years, the arrival of the bubonic plague in Europe in the mid-14th century has been blamed on rats.

In a brilliant move to clearly distance himself from his likely Democratic opponent, Jeb makes one claim that Hillary most certainly cannot.
Potential presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush delivered his first major foreign policy speech during a stop in Chicago Wednesday.

In 2001, America was attacked by a group of (mostly) Saudis based in Afghanistan.  We responded by invading Iraq.  Today, John Boehner elects to stop funding for Homeland Security and expects America to blame the Democrats.  To me, it seems counterintuitive and illogical, but our Party maintained control of Congress in 2004 on such actions and may do so again in 2016.  I guess that I should stay out of politics.

While America pines for an openly bipartisan governor, Oregon delivers an openly bisexual governor.  Close enough.
Secretary of State Kate Brown, who will takeover as governor next week, is the country's first openly bisexual governor.
