Hawk hides from Hurricane Harvey in taxi, refuses to leave
A Houston taxi driver made an unusual friend during Hurricane Harvey. William Bruso returned to his taxi after getting food to find a hawk sitting on the passenger seat. Dubbed Harvey, the Coopers hawk refused to leave his shelter. Bruso made sure the bird wasn't injured and tried to release him but Harvey seemed unwilling to brave the storm on his own. Eventually, Bruso agreed to let the hawk stay until the hurricane has passed.

Composer creates music just for cats and they love it - listen here
Cats enjoy "species appropriate" music, with purring, chirping and sliding tunes topping the kitty charts. Researchers tested what music cats like to listen to by playing them human music and cat music, composed by composer David Teie (who was not involved in the study). Publishing their findings in the journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science, researchers noted that many studies have tried to use music to influence the behaviour of animals, but outcomes have been conflicting. "We have developed a theoretical framework that hypothesises that in order for music to be effective with other species, it must be in the frequency range and with similar tempos to those used in natural communication by each species," they wrote. The team used species appropriate music composed by Teie and compared it with human music. The cat music was created by looking at the natural vocalisations of cats, using a lot of sliding frequencies commonly found in their calls, along with sounds they thought would be interesting for the animals, including purring, suckling and chirping. Speaking to Discovery News, study author Charles Snowdon, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said: "We looked at the natural vocalisations of cats and matched our music to the same frequency range, which is about an octave or more higher than human voices." They tested the tunes on 47 domestic cats at home with their owners present. While they ignored the human music, they rubbed their heads against the speakers when the cat music played. When cats display this rubbing behaviour, they are claiming that object or individual. Researchers believe this shows the cats wanted to claim the music. The authors concluded: "Cats showed a significant preference for and interest in species appropriate music compared with human music. Younger and older cats were more responsive to cat music than middle-aged acts. The results suggest novel and more appropriate ways for using music as auditory enrichment for nonhuman animals." Researchers believe the findings could have implications for helping shelter cats feel calmer: "We think of cats as highly independent of their human servants, but there is some research showing that cats experience separation anxiety, which is greater in human-raised cats than in feral cats," Snowdon said. Teie's cat music is available to purchase from his site, musicforcats.com. For more videos, head over to http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/tv

Amazon, Starbucks and Google grilled by MP's over tax
Executives from three of the world's most famous corporations - Amazon, Starbucks and Google - were grilled in a fiery encounter with British parliamentarians amid accusations that they were not paying enough tax to the Treasury. The House of Commons Public Accounts Committee (PAC), chaired by Labour MP Margaret Hodge, hosted representatives from the three firms to probe their financial arrangements following recent outcry against corporate tax avoidance, given government austerity and swingeing cuts to public services. Troy Alstead, Starbucks' chief financial officer, was asked how the coffee giant made 13 years of losses in the UK, the reason it had given for paying just £8.6m in corporation tax during that time. "You're either running the business badly, or there's some fiddle going on," said Austin Mitchell MP, who sits on the PAC. Alstead said high rents were eating away at the company's UK revenues and batted away claims that Starbucks was simply exporting its profits from the country so as to avoid tax. Amazon's director of public policy, Andrew Cecil, told MPs that France's taxman was trying to claw $252m (£142m) from them in unpaid taxes after European revenues were funnelled through Luxembourg. Cecil said Amazon is challenging the attempt by the French government to claim the tax. He also angered the British lawmakers by refusing to reveal the value of Amazon's UK sales. "We have not disclosed those figures ever publicly," he claimed. Chairperson Hodge described Cecil's avoidance and failure to answer certain questions as "outrageous" and said it was "just not acceptable". Google executive Matt Brittin, who is the internet search behemoth's vice president for sales and operations in Northern and Central Europe, dismissed the corporation's 2011 UK tax bill of just £3.4m, despite $4bn of sales in the country. It had actually made a loss in the UK in 2011, said Brittin, and the corporation pays "all the tax that it is required to." He said that Google was directing European profits through Bermuda and that this was an entirely legal thing to do. "We are not accusing you of being illegal, we are accusing you of being immoral," said Hodge. Perhaps, taking a swipe at the company's famous motto: "Don't be evil." The world's biggest economies, led by Britain and Germany, are seeking ways to clamp down on corporate tax avoidance and plug black holes in state treasuries across the globe.

FBI agents bust a £131m global credit card fraud ring
24 cyber hackers thought to be involved in a potential £131m credit card scam have been busted by the FBI. U.S. officials called the crackdown on the young men across the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia as the 'largest enforcement effort ever' against computer crooks. Their actions have saved over 400,000 people from being scammed. Here's one of the accused fresh from court in Manhattan and enjoying  the media spotlight!  18-year-old Mir Islam, who sports the online nickname of 'JoshThe God'. He's alleged to have bought and sold hacking programs, and stolen information via secure websites. Authorities say he's also admitted to helping emerging hacker group UgNazi, who had launched a cyber attack against Twitter last week. Here's another one of the suspected fraudsters Joshua Hicks. 19, he lives with his Mom and uses the net name 'OxideDox'. During a two-year long sting FBI agents locked on to suspected criminals by posing as members of an internet forum called 'Carder Profit'. The fake site was all rigged up to identify, investigate and disrupt the illegal activities of all the registered users who were online just to exchange stolen account numbers. Investigators made 11 arrests in various states, including New York, Florida, Wisconsin and California. Thirteen others were picked up: some here in the UK, as well as Bosnia, Norway, Italy and Japan. Search warrants were also executed in Australia and Canada.  If convicted, some of them face up to 40-years or more in prison.

Historic visit to Myanmar by US President
The U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, currently on an Asian tour of Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore and Australia. Visited Myanmar, the first by a sitting US president, to meet with President Thein Sein and pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Obama met Suu Kyi, a fellow Nobel Peace Prize laureate, at her lakeside house in the former capital Yangon, where she was held under house arrest for several years by army generals. The opposition leader, who led the struggle against military rule and is now a lawmaker, shook hands with Obama and warmly greeted Clinton with an embrace. Some human rights groups say the visit is premature because reforms have yet to be consolidated, but the White House has said Obama would press Myanmar's reformist president, Thein Sein, both in public and in private to do more about ethnic violence and human rights abuses.
