1.)     When you log on your computer today, don’t use Microsoft's Internet Explorer.    The United States' Homeland Security Department's Computer Emergency Readiness Team said Monday we should stop using Internet Explorer until Microsoft can fix it.    A new Internet Explorer vulnerability that affects all major versions of the browser from the past decade has forced it to raise an alarm.     It's recommended that if you can't switch browsers, that you disable Internet Explorer's Flash plug-in.


2.)     The San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards are viewed as the Oscars of fine dining.   The list, now in its 12th year, is dominated by European venues, although Asia had its first entry in the top 20 with the U.S. restaurants in the top 10.      Noma, in Coenhagen, Denmark was given the top prize, the 4th time the restaurant has been named best in the world.     Last year’s winner, Spain's El Celler de Can Roca, was bumped to second place.   The top U.S. restaurant is Eleven Madison Park in New York City, which came in fourth.


3.)     The year-end kindergarten show at Haley Avenue Primary School in Elwood, New York has been cancelled.     A letter sent to parents by Ellen Best-Laimet, the interim principal of the school, and four kindergarten teachers, explained that the show has been canceled because the kids have to keep working so they will be “college and career” ready.      The play was to be staged over two days, May 14 and 15.    The letter states that the educators believe that this decision is in the best interest of students.
