The Stagcom 16th November Round Up

More spies for the UK, Victoria's Secret, Rosberg wins in Brazil and the highest paid actors of 2015.

Government to Hire More Spies

The government is planning to hire 1,900 intelligence staff in the wake of recent terrorist attacks. According to Sky News, there are also plans afoot to increase airport security. David Cameron announced his intention to boost Britain's intelligence ranks at the G20 summit in Turkey. Before he made the actual announcement, he had this to say on the subject:

'Our intelligence agencies work around the clock behind the scenes and as the threat has grown so they too have risen to the challenge. Much of what they do cannot be seen by us or talked about but their courageous and determined efforts allow us to go about our daily life.'

Wildest Outfits from the Victoria's Secret show

Unless you're a monk or have been stuck on a desert island for a week, you'll be aware of the Victoria's Secret fashion show. This year it went bonkers. Here's a link to some of the wildest outfits, including this Kendall Jenner shot. You're welcome.

Rosberg Enjoys Second Straight Win in Brazil

Nico Rosberg enjoyed his second win in a row in Brazil on Sunday and secured second place in the championship. Rosberg held the inside and his lead despite Hamilton reportedly being determined to win in Brazil as a tribute to his hero Ayrton Senna. But it didn't happen, and Rosberg finished 7.7 seconds ahead of Hamilton.

Rosberg couldn't resist having a cheeky dig at his Mercedes team mate: 'Degradation was important, we saw Lewis dropping off in the second section.'

Ferrari team mates Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen came third and fourth respectively. Max Verstappen may have come in 10th place, but he definitely shone in Brazil and caught the attention of plenty, including BBC F1 pundits David Coulthard and Eddie Jordan. Verstappen's slick overtaking of Sergio Perez and Felipe Nasr inspired them to compare him to F1 legends Schumacher and Senna.

Highest Paid Actors 2015

American business mag Forbes has just released a list of the world's highest-paid actors in 2015, and it's pretty surprising. There are 33 on the list, which includes newcomers, Bollywood stars and Hollywood legends like Brad Pitt, who came in at 28 with earnings of $16m. Seth Rogen made the list for the first time with $17m, and Matt Damon netted a cool $25m. Daniel Craig scored 16th place, with $27m. Mark Wahlberg crept into the top 10 with earnings of $32m. Tom Cruise is still raking it in from the Mission: Impossible movies. He got paid an impressive $40m.

Here's the top five:

1. Robert Downey Jr, $80m

2. Jackie Chan, $50m

3. Vin Diesel, $47m

4. Bradley Cooper, $41.5m

5. Adam Sandler, $41m
