Microsoft tells IE users how to defend against zero-day bug

Microsoft has yet to patch its latest critical Internet Explorer zero-day security flaw, but an advisory about the bug now offers two temporary solutions.

Updated on Monday, Microsoft Security Advisory 2963983 offers new information about the new zero-day vulnerability that affects all versions of Internet Explorer. The flaw could allow remote code execution and has already been used in “limited, targeted attacks,” Microsoft revealed, though those attacks have so far affected only IE versions 9, 10, and 11.

Taco Bell reveals ingredients in mystery beef

Ever since Taco Bell released a statement in 2011 to say its beef is 88 percent beef, not 36 percent, as a lawsuit accused, the public has been left wondering: What’s in the other 12 percent?

Wonder no longer, kind of. Taco Bell has posted a somewhat-vague explanation of the other 12 percent on its website, detailing the “completely safe and approved by the FDA” ingredients that are “also found in food items at your grocery store.”

The ingredient explainer says the company recognizes some of the ingredients have “weird names” that are “perfect for tongue twisters,” but says the extra ingredients are there for taste.

Queensryche Battle Ends: Geoff Tate Loses Band Name, Keeps ‘Operation: Mindcrime’

The slow-motion breakup of Queensryche is finally complete, with both sides issuing a new statement hailing an “amicable settlement.”

Queensryche memorably split into two after the surprising ouster of longtime frontman Geoff Tate in 2012. A pair of albums — both credited to Queensryche — appeared last year, along with competing lawsuits. However, founding guitarist Michael Wilton indicated last week that the two warring factions were about to call a truce.

Long-time members Eddie Jackson, Scott Rockenfield and Wilton have been granted rights to the Queensryche name. Meanwhile, Tate is going forward as ‘the Voice of Queensryche.’ He has been granted exclusive full-album performance rights to Queensryche’s ‘Operation: Mindcrime’ projects, similar to the agreement between Pink Floyd and Roger Waters with ‘The Wall.’

Jackson, Rockenfield and Wilton, along with recent members Todd La Torre and Parker Lundgren, “will now be the sole entity recording and touring as Queensryche, performing selections from their entire musical catalog that spans over 30 years of material,” according to the jointly issued release. Wilton has confirmed that Queensryche is already at work on a follow up to 2013′s La Torre-fronted eponymous project.

“Both sides wish each other well and are excited about what the future holds,” the release concludes. “We want to thank the fans for standing beside us through this ordeal and look forward to sharing our music with you for years to come.”

Tate separately announced one final show as Queensryche starring Geoff Tate, to be held August 9 at the Downtown Amphitheater in Morgan Hill, California.

Health Benefits of Brewing and Drinking Tea

After plain old H2O, tea is the most popular drink on the planet. And some researchers say it’s even healthier. “Tea packs more of a punch than water,” says Carrie Ruxton, PhD, a dietitian and tea expert in the United Kingdom. “In addition to providing hydration, it’s rich in health-promoting substances.” The science is staggering: Studies suggest that one cup of tea may contain up to five times more antioxidants than any fruit or vegetable. These disease-fighting compounds may help prevent certain cancers, keep your heart healthyburn fat and ward off weight gain, sharpen your mind, and help your body beat the effects of aging and stress. The facts are in: It’s teatime!

Busted Pilot Forgets To Turn Off CHEMTRAILS While Landing

A pilot of a commercial airliner made a mistake that irrefutably PROVES the existence of “CHEMTRAILS” — by forgetting to turn them off before he landed!  We have video of the plane landing while still sprayingCHEMTRAILS as it hits the runway.  This is the first empirical evidence to back-up claims made people, smeared as “conspiracy-theorists,” who claimed airlines are being used by government to spray aerosols into the air without the knowledge or consent of the people being sprayed.  With proof like this, the public now has legal standing to file lawsuits, utilize subpoenas and force discovery of evidence.  The 1 minute blockbuster video appears below.

Money Does Buy Happiness, Says New Study

Readers of Forbes may wonder, are those billionaires who can afford Feadship yachts, Graff diamonds and Lamborghinis really happier than the rest of us? Individual happiness, of course, is a complex thing. But those of you who are curious about the happiness of populations en masse will want to read a new study by University of Michigan professors Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers.

Relying on worldwide data from Gallup and other sources, Stevenson and Wolfers determine that the wealthier people are, the more satisfied they are with their lives, at least when you look at nationwide figures. They also find, contrary to what many economists believe, that there is not a point of wealth satiation beyond which happiness levels off.

Wake And Bake In Style At The First Ever ‘Bud And Breakfast’ Opening In Denver

Weed is legal for everyone over the age of 21 in Colorado, and the movement to integrate bud into traditional services is moving along quite swimmingly.

This movement took a giant step forward when a company known as the MaryJane Group signed a one-year lease with the owners of Adagio Bed and Breakfast.

According to Eater, the company will turn the bed and breakfast into a “Bud N’ Breakfast” that will provide guests with a comfortable place to say, great food and, most importantly, high-quality bud and marijuana edibles.

You Can Now Grow Your Own Weed Anywhere In The World With The GrowLab Tent

Cultivating marijuana has long been an ambition of anyone who understands its potential.

College kids, scientists, even non-smokers recognize the economic opportunities of legally growing and selling weed. The GrowLab Horticultural Grow Room is the a perfect starter kit for a first timer, or a much-needed upgrade for a veteran.

One of the biggest holdbacks to starting this endeavor is finding the space to do it, and according to states that have legalized cultivation on personal property, this space must be concealed.

A lot of people get intimidated by the prospect of growing their own cannabis because they have visions of the grow room in “Pineapple Express,” with endless rows of plants guarded by armed guards.

In reality, depending on how much you want to grow, all you need is about a square foot and a GrowLab Horticultural Grow Room. This tent-like grow room is the perfect set up, whether it’s your first batch or your 50th.

Is This The Most Redneck Picture In The History Of Rednecks?

Reddit user snapped a picture of an audience member at a recent Monster Jam, which is not a Halloween-themed spread but rather an excuse for people to get drunk and watch cars get crushed by giant trucks. The result is one of the best photographs of a redneck in the wild that you will ever see.

This guy knows how to do a monster truck rally the right way. He’s got an indecipherable tattoo, a flowing mullet, a bright orange XXXL cutoff and a pair jorts that would make John Cena jealous. However, the pièce de résistance is indisputably the bottle of syrup that he’s funneling into his mouth.

I don’t know what’s in that bottle. There’s a pretty good chance that it’s whiskey, but it also wouldn’t shock me if that was actually “authentic” maple syrup. Of course, there’s always a chance that it’s some mixture of the two and, to be honest, any of those three explanations are all equally satisfying.

I almost like the mystery.
