Hackers, Circus Lions,

A report this morning says the Canadian government has been hacked and some highly sensitive information accessed forcing some government departments off the internet. One report says the hackers are from China, another says they are not!!!  It appears that it is possible the hackers are part of the Chinese government who are hacking into the Canadian government – i.e. cyberspying. If you would like to read more about it here

Rescued LionessAnother report on TV was about a number of lions which have been rescued from Bolivia. It appears the Bolivian government were persuaded to ban animal acts in circuses because the animals were so badly treated. This left 24 lions needing new homes. They have been airlifted to Colorado where they are being placed in a large biosphere to enable them to acclimatise to the Colorado winter. Bob Barker from The Price is Right has helped with the funding for the airlift.

Here’s another from the Grab and Go Breakfast series by Eating Well. In this case, I don’t think you can actually “go” with this recipe, but it is a healthy and simple way to start your day. I am always looking for new things to have for breakfast, I shall certainly try this.
