What To Do When You’re Caught In A Public Shooting

In an article published by BusinessInsider, Geoffrey Ingersoll, a former U.S. Marine, shared some insights about what to do when you’re in public and gunshots start ringing out.

The first thing to keep in mind, according to Ingersoll, is to not freak out and stay calm.

“This seems like common sense. Matter of fact, all of these will seem like common sense. But you wouldn’t believe how many people hear gunfire in a public place and just stand around, heads all in the air, bewildered, looking this way and that.”

Screaming is likewise a bad idea.

“If you find yourself in a situation like this, keep your mouth shut. The last thing you want to do is make the shooter notice you.”

Ingresoll also added that it is important to “put something in between you and the shooter, preferably something that blocks his sight completely” such as a tall grass. Better yet, find something that can cover and protect you such as a concrete embankment.

Finally, identify the threat and move away.

“From your position, Try to identify where the threat is, then move away slowly, keeping a low profile, keeping that piece of cover or concealment between you and the threat,” Ingresoll said. “Don’t be a hero! Leave that up to our men and women in uniform.”

Hey, Vampire Lovers! Count Dracula’s Castle Is For Sale

Initially, the castle was listed at $66 million, but now the owners are said to be willing to go as low as $13 million to sell the property.

In his 1897 book, Dracula, Irish writer Bram Stoker described the bloodthirsty title character's castle as a structure that "sits on the very edge of a terrific precipice."

The following passage from the novel further describes the castle's surroundings: "A stone falling from the window would fall a thousand feet without touching anything! As far as the eye can reach is a sea of green tree tops, with occasionally a deep rift where there is a chasm. Here and there are silver threads where the rivers wind in deep gorges through the forests."

At night, the castle looks like it's straight out of a horror movie.

Hackers’ Typo Stops Attempt to Steal $1 Billion from Bangladesh Bank to Philippines

Typing the wrong word can be very costly — but the banks targeted by a hacker group are thankful for a hacker’s poor spelling skills.

There have been many instances when a typographical error or typo — which defined as a a mistake in typed or printed text — has caused a lot of trouble. Here's an example: In 1962, a hyphen omitted from a computer code caused the failure of Mariner 1, a Venus-bound spacecraft. The typo cost the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) a staggering $18.5 million.

Just recently, though, officials of the Bangladesh Central Bank and the New York Federal Reserve were most likely very thankful for a typo for stopping a group of hackers from stealing $1 billion.

The hackers responsible haven't been identified.
