Drones Can Be Hacked

A team of researchers at the University of Texas at Austin won a $1,000 bet with the Department of Homeland Security by hacking into an airborne drone and wresting control from the pilot.
The researchers, headed by Dr. Todd E. Humphreys, got control of the drone by overloading it with false signals that were precisely matched up with authentic satellite signals. Once that happened, the drone ignored the original pilot, instead obeying the hackers’ every command.

Tea is Life : Strange Tea Facts

Tea was accidentally invented in 2737 BC when Chinese Emperor Shen Nung spotted some tea leaves blew into a pot of boiling water and produced a pleasing aroma. 1.42 million pounds of tea are consumed per day in the United States. An average of three billion cups of tea are consumed daily worldwide.

 Today tea is more popular than ever, and is the second most consumed drink in the world, losing only to water. Scientific studies are coming out regularly which are showing the health benefits of tea, which perfectly fits the idea of people trying to live more healthy lives. Tea is no longer expensive to buy, and is considered by some to be not just a drink, but a part of their lives
