First has anybody else noticed that the number of hacks in America determined to have originated in Russia have gone up exponentially since Edward Snowden landed there three years ago? 

Furthermore,  Edward Snowden (the traitor) says the auction of alleged NSA cyber tools is meant to warn the US from retaliating for two hacks of Democratic Party organizations.

What began as a tantalizing rumor has just become an astonishing fact. Today a group of thirty-one scientists announced the discovery of a terrestrial exoplanet orbiting Proxima Centauri. The discovery of this planet, Proxima Centauri b, is a huge breakthrough not just for astronomers but for all of us. 

Researchers have discovered strange minerals inside a Siberian mine that are unlike anything previously found in nature. What's fascinating is that, since the 1980s, scientists have been growing very similar materials in the lab, but until now, they never thought they could actually exist in nature.

Off to see the wizard, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
We hear he is a whiz of a wiz, if ever a wiz there was
