Prince Charles has spoken exclusively to Sky News about his ongoing concerns about climate change, saying he believes there are links to the current refugee crisis and terrorism.
In his only interview ahead of COP21, the UN's climate summit which opens next Monday, the Prince of Wales suggested that environmental issues may have been one of the root causes of the problems in Syria.
He said: "We're seeing a classic case of not dealing with the problem, because, I mean, it sounds awful to say, but some of us were saying 20 years ago that if we didn't tackle these issues, you would see ever greater conflict over scarce resources and ever greater difficulties over drought, and the accumulating effect of climate change, which means that people have to move.
"And, in fact, there's very good evidence indeed that one of the major reasons for this horror in Syria, funnily enough, was a drought that lasted for about five or six years, which meant that huge numbers of people in the end had to leave the land."

The analysis of a fossil tooth from Siberia reveals that a mysterious people known as Denisovans, discovered a mere five years ago, persisted for tens of thousands of years alongside modern humans and Neanderthals.
The find underscores that our Homo sapiens ancestors shared the Eurasian continent with other human-like populations. For hundreds of thousands of years, modern humans lived alongside Neanderthals, a sister hominid species that died out about 40,000 years ago. Denisovans appear to have shared some of that territory as well.
The new study, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, marks an important step in scientists understanding of where Denisovans fit in the human family tree.
In 2010, teams of geneticists and anthropologists led by Svante Pbo of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology announced strange DNA sequences recovered from a finger bone and molar found in the remote Denisova cave, in Siberias Altai Mountains.
The DNA from the previously analyzed finger bone and tooth show that Denisovans left their mark on modern humans, contributing about five percent of the genome of modern Melanesians, who live in Papua New Guinea and other parts of the Pacific.
In 2010, researchers found a second wisdom tooth, buried deep in the back of the cave. The dental analysis fell to Bence Viola, an anthropologist of the University of Toronto who had examined the first Denisovan wisdom tooth and initially mistook it for the tooth of a cave bear, given its size and huge, splayed roots.

Dallas Cowboys offensive guard Leonard Davis saved a different type of birdie during the Dallas Cowboys annual Sponsor Appreciation Golf Tournament Wednesday.
Davis, ever an animal-loving gentle giant, came to the rescue of nearly a dozen baby ducks stranded in a sand bunker on the 11th Hole. Davis walked into the bunker and picked up the baby ducks one-by-one and placed them gingerly on the fairway.
Quickly, the little ducks scurried back to their mother -- who previously, and very quickly, had left the sand trap as the 6 foot 6 inch, 360-pound lineman approached.
This wasnt the first time Davis has helped stranded animals. Following the same golf tournament back in 2007, Davis first year with the Cowboys, he flew back to Arizona and used his own tractor to help free a horse that was stuck in mud.

If you call your PC maker to troubleshoot a Windows 10 machine, dont be surprised if the advice is to roll back to an earlier version.
In a pair of undercover tech support calls, representatives from HP and Dell both suggested uninstalling Windows 10 as a blanket solution to problems, Laptop Mag reports.
The call to Dell was most baffling, as the caller was merely asking how to invert the scrolling direction on a laptops touchpad. This is an easy fix with the same procedure across all Windows versions, yet the representative suggested rolling back to Windows 8.1 as a solution, saying there are a lot of glitches in Windows 10.
An HP support rep also suggested reverting to Windows 8.1 after the computers CoolSense temperature control utility failed to work properly with the new operating system. I really dont recommend [that] customers upgrade to Windows 10, the representative said. (HPs support then tried to sell a $40 USB recovery key when the rollback itself didnt work.)
Microsoft is pushing Windows 10 more aggressively than any Windows version yet, with free upgrades for consumers through next fall. In 2016, the company will also categorize Windows 10 as a Recommended upgrade, so the installation will begin automatically on many users machines. But if these tech support calls are any indication, some users may be told to revert right back to an older version for even the slightest problems.
Why this matters: While these calls are just anecdotes, both HP and Dell confirmed to Laptop Mag that as a policy their support reps sometimes suggest rolling back to an earlier Windows version. The problem, as seen in the case with Dell, is that downgrading might not actually solve the problem, and is merely a catch-all for when the support rep is out of his or her depth. These anecdotes are as much an indictment of tech support by phone as they are an issue for Microsoft as it tries to make Windows 10 the dominant PC operating system.

If a hacker hijacks your computer with malware and holds your data for ransom, its probably best to just pay up, at least thats the latest advice the FBI is giving out concerning ransomware.
Reported last week by Security Ledger, Joseph Bonavolonta, the Assistant Special Agent who oversees the FBIs CYBER and Counterintelligence Program in Boston, spoke at the 2015 Cyber Security Summit and advised that companies infected with ransomware may want to give in to the criminals demands.
The ransomware is that good, Bonavolonta explained to an audience of business and technology leaders during the Q&A. To be honest, we often advise people just to pay the ransom.
Ransomware is a malicious software that takes over a victims hard drive when they click on an infected advertisement, email, attachment, or website and encrypts the contents of a device and any other connected electronics which the hacker then demands bitcoin or cryptocurrency payments to unlock.
The key to unencrypt data can cost victims anywhere from $200 and $10,000 and affects individuals and businesses alike. Even the police are not immune to the attacks. Cryptowall alone currently the most prevalent malicious software used made hackers over $18 million from April 2014 to June 2015.
The amount of money made by these criminals is enormous and thats because the overwhelming majority of institutions just pay the ransom, Bonavolonta said. Adding that the Bureau and others efforts have yet to yield a solution.
A spokesperson from the Boston Bureau told Business Insider that while the FBI doesn't make recommendations for what businesses should do if they fall vicitm, "instead, the Bureau explains what the options are for businesses that are affected and how its up to individual companies to decide for themselves the best way to proceed. That is, either revert to back up systems, contact a security professional, or pay."

N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Tuesday after finding that he had destroyed potential evidence about his role in the deflation of game balls to gain competitive advantage in the A.F.C. championship matchup in January.
The league said in a 20-page statement that its decision was based mainly on Bradys asking an assistant to destroy a cellphone that he had used before, during and after the week of the game. The league said the phones destruction, eliminating what league investigators believe were 10,000 texts, came to light in Bradys testimony to the commissioner at an appeal hearing in June, months after league-appointed investigators requested text messages and emails.
