Top 10 Notorious Hackers

To accompany the technological advancements of the computer world and the constant changing definition of a hacker, we thought it was time to look back at ten of the most notorious black hat hackers and the legendary hacks that earned them such a title. First, it should be known that a black hat hacker is computing slang for a person who engages in illegal or malicious hacking. A white hat hacker is a computer hacker who intends to improve internet security. It is note-worthy that many white hat hackers, such as Steve Jobs of apple, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, and even many hackers listed below, were once black hat hackers.
Kevin Poulsen
a.k.a. Dark Dante
The notorious ’80s black hat hacker, Kevin Poulsen, gained recognition for his hacking of the telephone lines for LA radio station KIIS-FM, securing himself a place as the 102nd caller and winning a brand new Porsche 944, among other prizes. Law enforcement dubbed Poulsen the “Hannibal Lecter of computer crime.” Poulsen went underground as a fugitive when the FBI began its search for him, but in 1991, he was finally captured.
He pleaded guilty to seven counts of mail, wire and computer fraud, money laundering, obstruction of justice, and for obtaining information on covert businesses run by the FBI. Kevin Poulsen was sentenced to 51 months in prison (4 years and 3 months), which was the longest sentence ever given for hacking at the time. However, since serving time, Poulsen has worked as a journalist and is now a senior editor for Wired News. Poulsen’s most note-worthy article details his work on identifying 744 sex offenders with MySpace profiles.

16 Rarest Flower Species In The World

Beautiful flower blossoms are all the more precious when they are borne on rare or endangered plants. These flowers will not be making an appearance at your local florist or garden nursery, and many grow only in a few small botanical garden collections. The rarest flowers in the world span the globe and range from delightful and fragile to enormous and putrid. Certainly to classify the rarest flowers isn’t easy especially since, according to scientists, more than 270,000 types of flowers exist (which doesn’t include the 10 to 15% of unclassified flowers in remote regions of the world). Of those that are rare, here are not only the rarest flowers, but the flowers with unquestionably the most interesting stories. Regardless of what drove them to become rarities, the following plants are far and few between, and having the opportunity to see one for yourself should be a celebrated occurrence.

The Amazing Falkirk Wheel Of Scotland

How is it possible to transport a huge boat from one water level to another much higher one? Scotland has the answer; a gigantic wheel that lifts boats. We are talking about the famous Falkirk Wheel that is an engineering landmark for Scotland.

It opened in 2002 and is connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. It has such an elegant structure which works in a way that the boat is first placed inside on one of the ring gears; then it rotates 180 degrees to lift up the boat. It has two ring gears, so there is always one empty ready to take in new boats.

It has an overall diameter of 35 metres (115 ft) and its design is inspired by a Celtic double-headed axe. It works on the Archimedes principle of displacement which means that the volume of the boat sailing into the ring will be a proportional mass of water so the final combination balances the original total volume, no wonder it’s a great landmark and something Scotland is proud of.

The Trees Of Terror

These terrifying trees are unlikely to attract children keen on climbing them.

With its haunting frame and looming arms, one particular beech looks like it has just leapt out of a set for the smash-hit movie Lord Of The Rings.

The spooky specimen, suspected to be an oak, was spotted by Charlotte Laurie on a quiet country lane at Boxted, near Colchester, Essex.

Scare-tree: The enormous beech,  resembles the Ents that feature in the Hollywood blockbuster Lord Of The Rings, that attack Isengard and manage to flood it

Artist Laurie, known as Busky, spotted the monstrous tree and said it appeared to be marching across fields to terrorise the roads.

Busky, 84, who lives nearby, said: ‘It looks like a really grumpy old woman.

‘It’s a wonderful thing to look at. The head is down and the arms are stretched out, it’s a wonderfully old tree.

‘But I’m not quite as old as the tree!’

If the ghost-like shape of the tree was not spooky enough, Miss Laurie said her neighbour often spots a small owl on it on her way home from work.

The Hammer Horrors tree, which sits on Sky Hall Hill, is not the only terrifying tower of timber in the area.

The face, which has been named 'Nature's Scream' by David Garnham, left, who spotted it, has been compared to Edvard Munch's famous painting, 'The Scream'

A gruesome tree in the grounds of Stowlangtoft Hall, near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, became an overnight sensation last summer. The tree’s gargoyle-like features were snapped by David Garnham and the 70ft beech quickly made national headlines.

He believes the bizarre tree - which also appears to have a twisted tongue forking from its mouth - shares an uncanny resemblance with Edward Munch's classic Scream painting.

Mr Garnham, a maintenance technician, said: 'I was going to get it blown up to A3 and donate it to the residential home but you can just imagine one of the old ladies waking up and thinking 'the Grim Reaper's come for me'.

'It really does show nature's true beauty and also says a lot about what the imagination can conjure up.

'It's a bit like the enchanted forest - where it moves towards you but stops when you look at it. I can't imagine too many children wanting to go climbing up that tree.

'I've called the photo 'Nature's Scream' because I think it does have an uncanny resemblance to Edvard Munch's classic work.

'I've known about it for a while but when I was taking my mother to work the other day, I pulled over and took a photograph of it.

'In the light of the day it looks peculiar but it came out on the photograph even better - its like a gargoyle and really is twisted into an incredible form.'
