Hawk hides from Hurricane Harvey in taxi, refuses to leave
A Houston taxi driver made an unusual friend during Hurricane Harvey. William Bruso returned to his taxi after getting food to find a hawk sitting on the passenger seat. Dubbed Harvey, the Coopers hawk refused to leave his shelter. Bruso made sure the bird wasn't injured and tried to release him but Harvey seemed unwilling to brave the storm on his own. Eventually, Bruso agreed to let the hawk stay until the hurricane has passed.

Composer creates music just for cats and they love it - listen here
Cats enjoy "species appropriate" music, with purring, chirping and sliding tunes topping the kitty charts. Researchers tested what music cats like to listen to by playing them human music and cat music, composed by composer David Teie (who was not involved in the study). Publishing their findings in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science, researchers noted that many studies have tried to use music to influence the behaviour of animals, but outcomes have been conflicting. "We have developed a theoretical framework that hypothesises that in order for music to be effective with other species, it must be in the frequency range and with similar tempos to those used in natural communication by each species," they wrote. The team used species appropriate music composed by Teie and compared it with human music. The cat music was created by looking at the natural vocalisations of cats, using a lot of sliding frequencies commonly found in their calls, along with sounds they thought would be interesting for the animals, including purring, suckling and chirping. Speaking to Discovery News, study author Charles Snowdon, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said: "We looked at the natural vocalisations of cats and matched our music to the same frequency range, which is about an octave or more higher than human voices." They tested the tunes on 47 domestic cats at home with their owners present. While they ignored the human music, they rubbed their heads against the speakers when the cat music played. When cats display this rubbing behaviour, they are claiming that object or individual. Researchers believe this shows the cats wanted to claim the music. The authors concluded: "Cats showed a significant preference for and interest in species appropriate music compared with human music. Younger and older cats were more responsive to cat music than middle-aged acts. The results suggest novel and more appropriate ways for using music as auditory enrichment for nonhuman animals." Researchers believe the findings could have implications for helping shelter cats feel calmer: "We think of cats as highly independent of their human servants, but there is some research showing that cats experience separation anxiety, which is greater in human-raised cats than in feral cats," Snowdon said. Teie's cat music is available to purchase from his site, musicforcats.com. For more videos, head over to http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/tv

Amazon, Starbucks and Google grilled by MP's over tax
Executives from three of the world's most famous corporations - Amazon, Starbucks and Google - were grilled in a fiery encounter with British parliamentarians amid accusations that they were not paying enough tax to the Treasury. The House of Commons Public Accounts Committee (PAC), chaired by Labour MP Margaret Hodge, hosted representatives from the three firms to probe their financial arrangements following recent outcry against corporate tax avoidance, given government austerity and swingeing cuts to public services. Troy Alstead, Starbucks' chief financial officer, was asked how the coffee giant made 13 years of losses in the UK, the reason it had given for paying just £8.6m in corporation tax during that time. "You're either running the business badly, or there's some fiddle going on," said Austin Mitchell MP, who sits on the PAC. Alstead said high rents were eating away at the company's UK revenues and batted away claims that Starbucks was simply exporting its profits from the country so as to avoid tax. Amazon's director of public policy, Andrew Cecil, told MPs that France's taxman was trying to claw $252m (£142m) from them in unpaid taxes after European revenues were funnelled through Luxembourg. Cecil said Amazon is challenging the attempt by the French government to claim the tax. He also angered the British lawmakers by refusing to reveal the value of Amazon's UK sales. "We have not disclosed those figures ever publicly," he claimed. Chairperson Hodge described Cecil's avoidance and failure to answer certain questions as "outrageous" and said it was "just not acceptable". Google executive Matt Brittin, who is the internet search behemoth's vice president for sales and operations in Northern and Central Europe, dismissed the corporation's 2011 UK tax bill of just £3.4m, despite $4bn of sales in the country. It had actually made a loss in the UK in 2011, said Brittin, and the corporation pays "all the tax that it is required to." He said that Google was directing European profits through Bermuda and that this was an entirely legal thing to do. "We are not accusing you of being illegal, we are accusing you of being immoral," said Hodge. Perhaps, taking a swipe at the company's famous motto: "Don't be evil." The world's biggest economies, led by Britain and Germany, are seeking ways to clamp down on corporate tax avoidance and plug black holes in state treasuries across the globe.

Ripe economy: Meet the Russian farmers benefiting from the ban on Western produce
At a strawberry farm in Kaliningrad Oblast, workers are busy picking ripe fruit to sell to locals during the summer. It's a sight that has become a lot more common in Russia over the past year. The Russian exclave, sandwiched between Lithuania and Poland, used to get up to 90% of its food products from abroad. But in July 2014, the Russian government imposed an embargo on EU and US food produce in retaliation for Western economic sanctions over the country's involvement in the Ukraine crisis. Now, a year on, local farmers in Russia are benefiting. "Before then, our produce was not in demand. But after the counter-sanctions, all the local shop chains as well as the majority of people turned around towards us and started to buy our produce with big success," says Shaig Memedov, a strawberry farmer based in Kaliningrad Oblast., head over to http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/tv

Louis van Gaal reacts angrily to David Moyes comparison
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal reacted angrily to being told that the Red Devils have at this stage the same points as they did under David Moyes last season, following on from losing 1-0 at home to Southampton. A goal from Serbian midfielder Dusan Tadic saw the Saints win at Old Trafford for the first time in 27 years, and inflict United with their first home defeat since the opening day of the 2014-15 season. After being asked by a journalist in the post-match press conference if there has been any progress under his tenure, seeing as United have the same amount of points (37) after 21 games this year as they did last year, van Gaal reacted angrily by accusing the journalist of "waiting for the moment so you can put this question". Southampton's in saw them leap-frog United to go third in the table, and leaves the Red Devils just a point ahead of fellow Champions League chasers Arsenal. Manchester United's next game is against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road.

William and Kate praise university where they met
Prince William and Kate Middleton attended a charity gala in London to mark the 600th anniversary of St Andrews University, the Alma Mater of both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. St Andrew's University also happens to be the place where William and Kate first met each other. Prince William and Catherine graduated, with honours, in 2005 -- William in Geography and Kate in History of Art. Founded in 1413, St Andrews is Scotland's oldest university and the third oldest university in the English-speaking world, behind Oxford and Cambridge. To commemorate 600 years of the institution, William and Kate attended a fundraising charity dinner at Middle Temple Inn on 8 November. Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge opted to yet again recycle her wardrobe. Kate wore the same floor-length black and cream lace gown she wore to the UK premiere of the film War Horse in London in January. However, the Duchess did make sure she didn't carry the same clutch this time. "Tonight is very special for Catherine and me," said Prince William in his speech on the occasion, "We have been privileged to receive the best of university educations. Secondly, we all love St Andrews. We love it for the academic start in life it gives us. But perhaps most important of all, we love it for the friendships it has given us." The University of St Andrews will stretch the celebration of its 600th anniversary across three calendar years - from 2011 to 2013. The royal couple's fundraising was to raise money for the 600th Anniversary Scholarship Fund, which will create opportunities for those students who have limited financial resources. The charity dinner was not the first event William and Kate would have had occassion to relive memories of their college days at St Andrews. In February last year, the royal couple visited the university as official royals, soon after their engagement, to launch the university's anniversary campaign. Written by Sanskrity Sinha

Hacking your money: Cloning credit cards, stealing bitcoin and spoofing Verified by Visa

"But unfortunately, retailers are the weakest link and a lot of countries where we do transactions don't support these more modern technologies". "Online transactions in fact represent a bigger opportunity for the cyber criminals, because they can achieve scale. There's actually some terribly bad user habits that have been drilled into them that can get them into a lot of trouble," he adds.
