I make no promises cause this is one hell of a phobia of mine but I'm going to try to get it outside
Drain holes make perfect entry points for grass-carrying wasps to access window tracks for nest construction, but sometimes it’s hard to get the grass completely inside. Cocoons of grass-carrying wasp line the tracks of my storm window where they will ride out the winter. During the waning days of autumn, as the hours of daylight grow ever shorter, I perform the semiannual task of washing my windows in a desperate attempt to ...

Something new I learned today.
 
Something I did not know: at the Statue of Liberty's feet are broken chains, and in the original design of the statue, she did not hold a book in her left hand, but rather the chains she had shattered.

Edouard de Laboulaye and Frédéric Batholdi, the two men behind the statue, were fervent abolitionists, and the initial impetus for the statue was the ratification of the 13th Amendment.

The final design of the statue, in which the chains are visible only from a helicopter, was the result of strong objections from the project's American backers, upon whom de Laboulaye and Batholdi were relying to fund the pedestal and the site; they wanted no mentions of slavery. In 1885-6, the United States was fully in the throes of "reconciliation," the process of the official forgetting of pre-War history, the rehabilitation of the political image of the South, and the formalization of the "New Slavery" system in both North and South which was to prove so immensely profitable. Such a public decree of slavery as an evil, and the antithesis of liberty, would have been an entirely unwanted political problem to those who wanted the country to "just get over it."

The chains remained virtually unknown until recently, with even the National Park Service not mentioning their existence in its publications. Ordinary tourists never saw them; thanks to the steep angle of the plinth, they're completely invisible from the ground. It was only in 2011 that (for reasons not fully clear) this changed, and the USNPS now discusses this history at length on its site.

Via +Ralf Haring and +Peter da Silva.
Sharon Kyle: The story behind the creation of the Statue of Liberty was suppressed for more than 125 years. Finally, the National Park Service includes literature that explains the shackles and chains.

"Watching all the TeamViewer-related tweets and Reddit comments scroll by in real time is like drinking from a firehose. While reports of infected computers and drained accounts have reached a deafening crescendo over the past 48 hours, similar stories have been circulating for more than six months"

Service blames password reuse for attacks used to drain financial accounts.

There have been several major password leaks recently, from other companies.

Password re-use is the #1 cause of other services getting cracked.

Change your passwords.

If you have TEAMVIEWER on your computer, immediately go to that folder and uninstall it. There was no warning and no reason for it, but connections from both Taipei and China just went through to mine and my husband's computer. On his it immediately went to Ebay to try to buy giftcards, for me I was luckily also on my computer to see it.
DONT LET YOURSELF BE AN EASY TARGET, UNINSTALL
You have passwords saved? your email is logged in? you have paypal? GET THAT OFF YOUR COMPUTER NOW.
It signed into both his and mine that it was our names, but the login origin destinations were from Taipei and China. Their accounts are compromised and you need to get that off your computers immediately until it's fixed

+Nicolette Weil If both computers were listed within one TeamViewer account's computers list (they can be added to more than one account), a single compromised account would grant immediate access to both.

You can each have a TeamViewer account with two-factor authentication enabled, that can both have each computer added to it. Either way, if you have a TeamViewer account, you should have two-factor auth on.

Also, I recommend ensuring your PCs are locked when you're away from them. Even if someone can remote your PC, if they don't know your PC's password, they can't get past the lock screen.

Another thing you can shut off, though given both your computers were hacked, probably wasn't how you got hit, is you can shut off the random one-time passwords that TeamViewer generates, so that those aren't ways to log in.

TeamViewer is a decently secure product, but if you leave it running all the time, you should take some basic precautions.

Yeah, I mean, if you sign up for a reality show, you kinda know what you're getting, but for them to play with people's emotions who aren't part of the act is pretty cruel.

Staff was extremely friendly, but my sandwich was not toasted correctly and was cold in the center. So I will return, and hopefully be able to give a better score! They were nice enough to give a second chance :)

This location used to be so nice! They must have changed owners. No longer 24hour pharmacy, all of the staff have either been replaced or left.
