The opening ceremony has officially kicked off at Sochi's Fisht Olympic Stadium, marking the start of the 2014 Olympic Games. Athletes representing countries across the globe have gathered for the big night, and although Sochi's had its problems over the past couple weeks, the world is now watching as the festivities begin. For the ceremony, opera singer Anna Netrebko performed the Olympic anthem, and Russian pop duo tATu hit the stage for the pre-ceremony before a slight snowflake malfunction.
Li-Fi, a super-fast alternative to Wi-Fi, has been proven capable of sending data at up to 1GBps in real-world tests.
According to the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, the U.S. airstrike that killed 30 people at a Doctor Without Borders hospital in northern Afghanistan last month was just a big mistake. CNN reports Gen. John Campbell said U.S. personnel mistakenly believed they were firing at combatants who were reported at a different building. An investigation determined the strike in Kunduz "was the direct result of human error compounded by systems and procedural failures." Campbell said Wednesday that U.S. forces involved in the strike did not know the target was a hospital.
Travelers on the day before Thanksgiving got started early; some may have thought leaving for the airport in the wee hours of the morning would help them avoid crowds, but they weren't alone. Lines at airports in Portland, Oregon, and San Diego, California, started before 5 a.m. And lines elsewhere, from Lexington, Kentucky, to Boston, Massachusetts, weren't much better. The U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert on Monday, due to increased concern about terror threats in the wake of the Paris attacks.
A Spanish renewable energy group has collapsed into insolvency. The announcement on Wednesday came just months after US investment bank Citi led a €100m share sale to rescue the group. According to The Guardian, Abengoa shares dropped 70% in minutes after the company said it was starting insolvency proceedings, after a deal for a €350m capital injection fell through. The collapse is especially embarrassing for Citi, as it led a July share sale for the company at a price of €2.80 a share. On Wednesday Abengoa shares slumped to just €0.33. The company employs 24,000 people. It's involved in renewable electricity generation, converting biomass into biofuel, and desalination of seawater for drinking.
This Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to take your car and just travel somewhere. Because when gas price is so low the only thing left to do is to take advantage of it. In fact the price of gas this Thanksgiving week is the lowest it's been in seven years. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Gas currently costs an average of $2.20 per gallon, the lowest it's been during the busy holiday travel week since 2008, when it cost an average of $1.95 a gallon. Prices peaked in 2012, when drivers forked over an average of $3.50 a gallon to get to their Thanksgiving dinners. According to AAA, 46.9 million people will be traveling over Thanksgiving — with 89 percent of them driving.
