Hacker Who Released Obama’s Social Security Number Arrested

The man who suspected of being “Guccifer”, a notorious hacker known for targeting celebrities and politicians and most notably George Bush, has been arrested in Romania according to reports.

Marcel Lazar Lehel was arrested in Arad, which is just west of Bucharest, and charged with attempted theft of confidential information in emails. 

Apparently the arrest followed a raid on his home by police forces working in conjunction with US authorities.

Romanian police said that he had hacked the mail of the country’s spy chief, George Maior, sending the Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) on a hunt to find him.

Lehel has operated under the names “Guccifer”, “Little Smoke” and “The Small Fume” and has made headlines in the past for hacking the email account of George Bush then publishing personal photos of him that were found. In addition to Bush, he hacked his daughter’s email and found pictures of artwork the president had painted as well as messages talking about the eulogy of his father.

It’s alleged (but unconfirmed) that he found and released the Social Security number of Barack Obama.

He also exposed an affair that Colin Powell was having with a woman named Corina Cretu last summer. Emails show that Cretu sent Powell photos of herself in a bikini with suggestive messages. Powell would later admit to the relationship but said he didn’t feel for her the way she felt about him.

Most recently he targeted Downtown Abbey creator Julian Fellowes where he was able to get into her BT internet account and obtain the scripts for the remaining episodes, he didn’t ever release them however.

Lehel was arrested 2 years ago for cyber-crimes and given a 3 year sentence of supervised probation and with this most recent arrest he’s probably looking at jail time.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
