These are truly amazing birds and extremely intelligent:
African grey parrots are not only really smart, they are helpful too. They are the first bird species to pass a test that requires them both to understand when another animal needs help and to actually give assistance.
Besides humans, only bonobos and orangutans have passed this test, says Désirée Brucks at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich in Germany. Even chimps and gorillas have failed at it.

Why Are Volcanoes All Over The Globe Suddenly Shooting Giant Clouds Of Ash Miles Into The Air?

by Michael Snyder - January 13, 2020

... More than 1,000 earthquakes have rattled Puerto Rico so far, and as you will see below, it was just hit by another very large earthquake.
But right now volcanic eruptions have taken center stage.
In particular, a massive eruption in the Philippines is making headlines all over the world, but what most people don’t realize is that several other volcanoes have also blown their tops in spectacular fashion within the past week.
Suddenly, volcanoes all over the globe are shooting giant clouds of ash miles into the air, and this is greatly puzzling many of the experts.

Let’s review what we have witnessed over the past 7 days.
Last Tuesday, one of the most important volcanoes in Alaska shot hot ash 25,000 feet into the air…

Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano burst to life on Thursday in a spectacular gush of lava and clouds of ash that hurled incandescent rock about 20,000 feet into the sky....

Meanwhile, down in South America the Sabancaya volcano in Peru just shot a plume of volcanic ash approximately 24,000 feet into the air…
...what just happened in the Philippines:
On Sunday, Taal volcano roared to life, and it is being reported that the eruption sent “steam, ash and pebbles up to 10 to 15 kilometers (6 to 9 miles) into the sky”.
...Unfortunately, authorities are warning that the worst may still be yet to come....

In fact, they are telling us that a “hazardous explosive eruption” could literally happen at any moment…
... everything that can be shaken will be shaken.

Almost 800,000 Years Ago, an Enormous Meteorite Struck Earth. Now We Know Where.
20% of the surface of Earth’s Eastern Hemisphere is littered with a certain kind of rock. Black, glossy blobs called tektites are spread throughout Australasia. Scientists know they’re from a meteorite strike, but they’ve never been able to locate the crater where it struck Earth.
Now a team of scientists seems to have found it.
The chunk of rock that crashed into Earth about 790,000 years ago, during the Early Pleosticine. It was about 2 km (1.2 miles) wide. Its impact on Earth was enormously powerful, spreading debris across Asia, Australia, and even Antarctica.
Now a team of researchers say they’ve found the exact location of the strike. The impact crater lies under a feature called the Bolaven Plateau volcanic field in Laos. ...

US Army Plans to Transform Cyber Operations ...

The U.S. Army will be converting its cyber operations branch into an information warfare command in an effort to counter opponents such as Russia and China, a top U.S. general has said.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville announced the plans at a panel on Jan. 14, explaining that its Cyber Command will be modernized and transformed into the Army Information Warfare Command, the Washington Examiner reported.
By 2028, McConville said he hopes the U.S. Army will move away from an industrial-age army to a digital-age army...

“Our Cyber Command is going to become an information warfare command,” McConville said, adding that the service will create “cyber ranges” and digital operations to help soldiers with their training.
“We’re going to use virtual reality, augmented reality, so our soldiers can train on missions before they actually have to go,” McConville said.

Koala Rescued from Australia Bushfire Dies After Samaritan Gives Him 'Silent Killer'

Arnie the koala bear has become one of the many faces of wildlife that have been displaced, destroyed, or left in critical condition as the Australian bushfires continue to rage.
Arnie was rescued by a good Samaritan ...
Arnie’s situation initially seemed optimistic, as he suffered only minor burns to his hands and feet.
But sadly, Arnie the koala bear died from a health complication that had nothing to do with his singed fur or burned feet.
Arnie died from aspiration pneumonia, the result of a seemingly kind deed at the hands of the person who rescued him.
Animalia Wildlife Shelter explained that a simple drink from a water bottle can be fatal to a koala bear, just as it was for Arnie.
The shelter explained that it is not natural for koalas to drink much water at all, as they get the hydration they need from the plants they eat.
If and when the koalas do drink, however, they lap it slowly with their tongues, heads down as they drink. Therefore, water from a bottle can be a silent killer for the creatures....
“He was found by some very caring people who did what any human would do when they find a distressed animal, and offered him a drink from their bottle of water. They were just trying to help. They didn’t know that it is dangerous for Koala’s to drink this way.”
The organization explained that when a koala holds its head up to consume water, it can trigger a series of medical complications that can be life-threatening.
“They didn’t know that when a Koala holds it head up and takes in too much water, it can easily get in to their lungs and cause Aspiration Pneumonia, which is usually fatal. This is exactly what happened to little Arnie,” the organization wrote.

Why did I abandon the field of Information Security four years ago? Because it no longer exists in any form whatsoever. At least no form that can protect us.
