Fred Vautour, 63, of Waltham, Mass., grew up in a broken home and without a lot of support, and his childhood experiences drove his choices later in life: He knew that he wanted to work “not just for the money but because you want to be your best at what you do.”

Daily Mail Publishes Major Scoop… The Location Of RT’s Evil London Lair

The Daily Mail, the very symbol of journalistic integrity in Britain, has scored a major coup – it has revealed the location of RT’s UK office. We haven’t been able to confirm the number of investigative journalists involved in finding the address – presumably by googling it.

The biggest surprise to dedicated Daily Mail readers will be that RT is not operating from a hollowed-out volcano on a super villain’s tropical island, but actually from a gray, aging (cold) skyscraper.

How to Roll a Cigarette

Choose your rolling paper. Use thin rice or wheat-straw paper in a standard or king size. Plan to tear your paper down to size—wide and square is a solid, versatile starting shape. Buy papers online, in convenience stores, at marijuana dispensaries, and at tobacco shops.
Look for papers that burn slowly and evenly. Look for papers that contain few chemical additives, as some chemicals burn with a bad flavor. Consider brands like RAW natural hemp rolling papers and Zig-Zags.
If you plan to carry your papers around with you, get a rolling paper protector. Put your rolling papers into this metal case to prevent them from bending and tearing. Improvise a case from an empty mint or gum tin.
Carry spare paper. Gummed strips torn from a spare paper are great for mending tears, leaks, and gaps.

‘US Will Never Retract Accusations Against Kaspersky

Even with no evidence and damage to the company, the US won’t distract spying allegations against Kaspersky Lab due to anti-Russian hysteria in the US media and left-wing circles, said Greg Copley, editor of Defense & Foreign Affairs.

Two months ago, the US Department of Homeland Security ordered agencies under its umbrella to identify Kaspersky Lab software on their computers and remove it from their networks on the grounds of the alleged espionage threat. The Moscow-based company was accused of leaking classified information to the Russian secret services.

An Arkansas Town Agrees To Criminal Justice Reform To Ensure That The Poor Are Not Jailed

For years, the city of Sherwood, Arkansas, home to about 30,000 people, had a practice of jailing people who could not afford to pay court costs incurred from bounced checks. Thousands of Arkansans were locked up—sometimes after bouncing checks in small amounts—when they could not pay crushing fees, fines, and other costs that compounded their debt by as much as 10 times the original amount.

Thousands of geese take off in simultaneous flight across a lake in Canada creating a mesmerising scene and deafening sound

Thousands of geese moving across a lake in Canada creates a deafening sound in this memorizing video that's like nature's version of Swan Lake.
Footage taken at Lake Massawippi in Ayer's Cliff in Quebec shows ten thousand snow geese taking off in simultaneous flight.
The snow goose is a rare find in Europe but the species is heavily populated in colder areas like northern Canada or Greenland, where they migrate south in the winter into warmer parts of North America.
In this captured moment some of the geese are seen resting on the crisp blue water, while others can be viewed flying above in a wave of fluttering wings gradually moving forward.

The result of their wings beating together paired with the birds' call is an enormous sound with a shape sometimes referred to as a 'snowstorm'.

Is this the world's ULTIMATE library? Stunning photographs show inside futuristic new build which houses 1.2million books

They are usually old, dusty places with little design appeal.
But a cutting-edge architectural firm from Denmark is fast redefining how we see the humble library - as their latest project has proven, this week.
The Tianjin Binhai Public Library, located in northeastern China, was recently unveiled by MVRDV to widespread interest after a three-year process.
Their work, which is helping to build a cultural complex in the city of Tianjin, has resulted in a five storey creation which is deliberately designed to look like a human eyeball.
Spanning an enormous 362,744 square feet of space, the terraced shelves are built into the walls where they create both stairs and seating areas.
Impressively, it boasts a staggering 1.2million books, making it a bibliophile's paradise.
