Royal Scams

It's great news that the William and Kate have had a royal baby boy!

However, as with most high profile news stories, you need to be very cautious of scammers and fraudsters using the good news as a means for distributing malware and committing fraud.  

Remember if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! 

If someone's sending you a link to a picture or something else then you need to keep a few things in mind:

1. Just because a link or email has come from a trusted friend, doesn't mean to say that its a safe email. Their account might have been hacked. 

2. If it's legitimate and nothing bad or malicious then it should be available elsewhere on the net - places like the BBC website keep up to date with all the news and gossip - try looking there 

3. Always be careful opening attachments.

Durham's a nice place to go with interesting things to visit like the Castle, Cathedral and Crook Hall. It's also not too far away from York. As well as staying in hotels you can stay in Durham University's halls of residence.

Do Ghosts Exist?

I've always been fascinated by ghosts and whether they actually exist.   Could the environment is able to make a recording of very traumatic and emotional events?

Why is it that stories of ghosts have been around for thousands of years but not taken seriously? Some people seem to be open and sensitive to these things and others just think it is a lot of mumbo jumbo?
