19 Mindchoking Facts of Bill Gates House

Hemant Verma - 9:16 PM
Bill Gates – a business magnate, dutiful philanthropist, software pioneer, and the world’s richest man. Let’s take a look at 50 of the most interesting things you probably didn’t know about Microsoft’s co-founder.



1. It's worth at least $123 million.

According to the King County public assessor's office, the property is worth $123.54 million as of this year. Gates purchased the lot for $2 million in 1988.

He reportedly pays around $1 million in property taxes each year.

2. Half a million board-feet of lumber was needed to complete the project.

The house was built with 500-year-old Douglas fir trees. 300 construction workers labored on the home - 100 of whom were electricians.

3. A high-tech sensor system helps guests monitor a room's climate and lighting.

When guests arrive, they're given a pin that interacts with sensors located all over the house. Guests enter their temperature and lighting preferences so that the settings change as they move throughout the home. Speakers hidden behind wallpaper allows music to follow you from room to room.


4. The house uses its natural surroundings to reduce heat loss.

Xanadu 2.0 is an "earth-sheltered" house, meaning that it's built into its surroundings to regulte temperature more efficiently.


5. You can change the artwork on the walls with just the touch of a button.

$80,000 worth of computer screens are situated around the house. Anyone can make the screens display their favorite paintings or photographs, which are stored on storage devices worth $150,000.

6. The pool also has its own underwater music system.

The 60-foot pool is located in its own separate, 3,900-square-foot building. People in the pool could swim underneath a glass wall to come up to a terrace area on the outside.

There's also a locker room with four showers and two baths.

7. There's a trampoline room with a 20-foot ceiling.

No word on how big the trampoline itself is, but we can imagine it would be a fun alternative to your standard exercise routine.

The exercise facilities total 2,500 square feet and also include a sauna, steam room, and separate men's and women's locker rooms.


8. An enormous reception hall could accommodate up to 200 guests.

The 2,300-square-foot hall could seat up to 150 people for a dinner party, or 200 people standing up at a cocktail event. A six-foot-wide limestone fireplace dominates one wall, while another wall has a 22-foot-wide video screen.

9. The house has 24 bathrooms, 10 of which are full baths.

Those bathrooms would definitely be useful if Gates were throwing such a big party. Otherwise, it seems a little over-the-top.


10. There's a total of six kitchens.

They're situated at different parts of the house so staff can be ready for any event.


11. An enormous library houses a manuscript Gates paid more than $30 million for.

The 2,100-square-foot library has a domed roof and two secret bookcases, including one that reveals a hidden bar. On the ceiling you'll find a quote from "The Great Gatsby" that reads: "He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it."

The library is home to the Codex Leicester, a 16-century Leonardo da Vinci manuscript that Gates bought at auction for $30.8 million in 1994.

12. The home theatre can accommodate 20 guests in plush seats.

It's designed in an Art Deco style, with comfortable arm chairs, couches, and even a popcorn machine for snacking.

13. An existing home was removed by barge to make room for a separate activities building.

The 900-square-foot building sits next to Gates' sport court, putting green, and boat docks.

14. The guest house is just as high-tech as the main house.

According to US News, the 1,900-square-foot guest house was the first building to be completed on the property. The house - which has its own bedroom and bathroom - was meant to be a test of the technology that would eventually be used in the main house.


15. All together, Gates' garages can accommodate up to 23 cars.

There are several different garages located at different points around the property. The most interesting one, however, is an underground cave made out of concrete and stainless steel. That garage alone can park 10 cars. Some of the concrete was purposely broken to give it a rough, "deconstructivist" look.

16. Gates has a favorite tree, and it's monitored electronically 24 hours a day.

He reportedly became fond of a 40-year-old maple tree that grew close to the home's driveway. It's monitored by computer, and if at any point it becomes too dry, water is automatically pumped into it.

17. An artificial stream is kept stocked with fish.

The stream and wetland estuary were created to solve any problems with runoff that the property's large walls might have created. The water is kept stocked with salmon and sea-run cutthroat trout.

18. The sand on Gates' beach is imported from the Caribbean.

The lakefront shore contains sand that's delivered in large quantities by a barge from St. Lucia each year.

19. Someone once paid $35,000 just to tour it.

Microsoft holds an auction each year, where employees donate products and services to be bid on. Proceeds go to the company's charitable fund.

Pro-ISIS pilots operated commercial flights in Indonesia – leaked reportis

Hemant Verma - 7:32 PM
Two former pilots for Indonesian airlines were found to have been radicalized by Islamic State after they expressed sympathy for the jihadist group online, while still performing passenger flights, a leaked Australian police report said.

Ridwan Agustin, who worked for Air Asia Indonesia, and his colleague from Premiair airline, Tommy Hendratno, fell under the allure of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in mid-2014, the document obtained by the Intercept website said.



The report entitled “Identification of Indonesian pilots with possible extremist persuasions” was distributed by the Australian Federal Police to partner agencies in the US, UK Turkey, Jordan as well as the Europol.

“Both [pilots] appear to be influenced by pro-IS elements including extremist online propaganda by well-known radical Indonesia outlets and a suspected Indonesian foreign terrorist fighter who is likely to be in either Syria or Iraq,” the document said.

Agustin and Hendratno began leaving positive comments under photos showing alleged terrorists posing with weapons in a conflict zone.

They also befriended other pro-IS profiles, including those by Indonesians, who went to Syria and Iraq to fight for the terror group.

The pilots changed their profile names to Ridwan Ahmad Indonesiy and Abu Alfatih Hendratno, expressing interest in joining IS themselves.

The photos on their pages also documented how their appearance over the last months changed under the influence the IS ideology, the report said, with both men growing jihadist-style beards.

In March 2015, Agustin posted his location on social media as Raqqa in Syria, a city proclaimed to be the capital of IS-held territories.



The leaked police report pointed out the extreme dangers, which a radicalized pilot could pose to international security.

“Pilots, air crew and others with access to and within the aviation environment can pose obvious threats if these persons are radicalized. Their access and knowledge of security and safety regimes provides the ability to attempt attacks as witnessed by past global events,” the report warned.

In the paper, the Australian police also stressed that terrorist propaganda has been recently encouraged attacks by those involved in aviation.

RT contacted Air Asia Indonesia, where Agustin worked, with the company only saying that the man is no longer employed there.

Premiair responded by saying that Hendratno had left the company in June, three months after the Australian report was issued.

Former commercial pilot Mark Weiss told RT that the “numbers that radicalized are certainly a lot greater than the two that we already know about” as there are tens of thousands of pilots around the globe.

“Pilots and flight attendants get a certain level of training that provides them with the inside knowledge on how to protect an aircraft and its passengers and crew. But conversely it also points out areas of weakness,” he stressed.

“The real troubling part about it is that there’s no definitive way to stop this. It’s really going to be a matter of trying to out up nets around everything,” Weiss added.


Trust in pilots has been shaken for airline passengers in recent years by a few incidents where cockpit crews have deliberately caused disasters.

In March, Andreas Lubitz, who suffered from severe depression , downed a Germanwings plane in the Alps, killing 149 people.

In November 2013, investigators concluded that a Mozambique Airlines pilot intentionally caused an accident, in which 33 people lost their lives.

Security expert, Binoy Kampmark, said that danger that a plane may be used as “very dangerous weapon” is real.

“Aviation industries have very strict recruitment, screening and vetting procedures. You can’t really go much more than that. But unfortunately, you have to always realize that there will be instances where people will also get through,” Kampmark told RT.


Drug Lord of Mexico 'EL Chapo' Guzman Escapes by Tunnel from Jail

Hemant Verma - 7:07 PM
Top drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped through a 1.5-kilometer (1 mile) tunnel that opened into the shower area of his cell, Mexico's top security official announced Sunday.

Guards at the Altiplano Federal Prison discovered during a routine check on Saturday that Guzman, who known as "El Chapo," was missing, a statement from the commission said.



Guzman was captured in early 2014 after having eluded capture for more than a dozen years.

Guzman is the storied boss of one of the world's most powerful and deadly drug trafficking operations.

He escaped in 2001 from a high-security prison in a laundry cart, and was not apprehended again until February, 2014, when he was arrested at a Mexican beach resort.

On the run after his 2001 escape, Mr. Guzmán rose to the top of the Sinaloa cartel, and embarked in ambitious wars with other cartels, including the Gulf and Juarez cartels. His attempts to take over Ciudad Juárez from the Juarez cartel turned the city, immediately across the border from El Paso, Texas, into a bloody battleground and cost the lives of thousands. Mr. Guzmán also tried to muscle in on Nuevo Laredo, then run by the Gulf Cartel, a move that also led to an explosion of violent deaths.

Mr. Guzmán first daring prison escape in 2001, and the apparent inability of the Mexican government to recapture him, made Mr. Guzmán a hero to many Mexicans, a sort of Mexican Robin Hood, who thumbed his nose at authorities. He was the subject of many narcocorridas, or ballads celebrating his exploits.
