Editor/Producer @Reuters. I help make what you look at when you look at the news. Opinions mine, RTs not endorsements, etc. I'm with him: @bobalevine.

Mr. Grey, we’ll see you now — The case of "mr. grey" could soon be black and white. FBI officials say they have a lead on a massive hacking case, linking a hacker (perhaps named after the famed "50 Shades" character) to the theft of 1.2 billion Internet credentials. Update your Facebook password -- and read on for more news you might have missed.

Amazon’s arboreal threat — The Amazon forest, long an area of concern for conservationists, may be in even more trouble than originally thought. More than half the species of trees in the region are seen as being at risk for extinction, according to a new study.

A reason for Wall Street to care about climate change — Climate change: Coming to a wallet near you. That may make little sense to you (and maybe you've got a point) but hear us out: A new study shows that climate change will have a huge financial impact on the world if it continues on its current course.

Not by the hair on their chinny chin chin — And this little piggy wreaked havoc on an entire country. Italy is facing a massive wild boar problem. Rampaging boar are destroying crops, causing road accidents and, yes, even attacking people, Italian authorities say. The problem has emboldened hunting parties to try to control the invasive animal's soaring population, though this practice has done little to slow the boars' rise.

A sour chirp — It's a change only a mother could <3. Twitter, in a purported effort to be more user-friendly, has replaced its famed "favorite" button (the iconic star symbol) with a heart-shaped symbol called "like." The online reaction was robust -- and not in a good way.

Happy (almost) Halloween — Charlie Brown never saw pumpkins quite as great as these. Croton-on-Hudson welcomed intricate squash artwork this October as part of its annual "Great Jack O' Lantern Blaze." The festival welcomed over 7,000 ornately decorated pumpkins. Check out a collection of Reuters images from the festival here.

Look out below! — Step aside, Billy Corgan. A Minnesota man gave his audience a smashing pumpkin worth talking about this Halloween season, sending his 1,465-pound pumpkin crashing into a minivan -- intentionally. Volunteers lifted the superlative squash high into the air and let one lucky pumpkin-dropper yank a cord, sending the orangey orb plummeting.

Look, ma, no hands! — Sorry, but "I only have two hands" may no longer be a valid excuse to get out of doing things. Researchers in London have developed an eye-tracking robotic arm that allows users to paint a picture while eating and drinking.

RT @Reuters: Researchers have developed an eye-tracking robotic arm. See it in action in Reuters FYI:

The new Tibetan challenge — Add this to the list of things that are currently threatening Tibet: climate change. At least that's according to the Dalai Lama, who said this week that two-thirds of the region's mountainous glaciers may disappear in the next 35 years, due to global warming.

What holiday is it, anyway? — It's the second Monday of October, which means it's Columbus Day in America - or Indigenous Peoples' Day, depending on what part of the U.S. you're in. Or it's Thanksgiving, if you're in Canada. Or it's just Monday, really, for some parts of the world.
