Nigel Farage's Reform Party predicted to win 13 seats in historic breakthrough as Conservatives collapse in UK general election.

In a stunning turn of events, Nigel Farage's Reform Party is projected to win 13 seats in the House of Commons, marking a historic breakthrough for the populist party. This comes as the Conservative Party, which has led Britain for 14 years, is projected to have won only 131 seats in the election, a significant drop from their previous standing.

The Labour Party, led by Sir Keir Starmer, is projected to have won a historic landslide, earning an estimated 410 seats. British pollster John Curtice notes that the Conservatives seem to have "fallen far in seats they previously held," while "Reform has advanced most in areas people voted Leave in the 2016 EU referendum."

Farage himself is said to have a 99 percent chance of winning the Clacton-on-Sea constituency he is contesting. British exit polls, based on surveys of voters who have cast their ballots, are typically highly accurate, with no significant errors since 1992.

This election marks a significant shift in the political landscape of the UK, with the Reform Party making significant gains and the Conservatives experiencing a major collapse. It remains to be seen how this will impact the country moving forward.

In other news, Meta (formerly known as Facebook) has formally announced plans to build a massive $800 million, 715,000-square-foot data center in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The project is expected to support about 100 operational jobs and more than 1,000 skilled trade jobs at its peak of construction. The facility is scheduled to open by 2027.

The project is viewed as one of the largest high-tech investments ever made in the Cowboy State and is widely considered one of the reasons why the nation's largest energy companies are building sprawling solar farms nearby. A $1.2 billion Enbridge Inc. solar project is planned near the data center that could supply it with power. The 1.2 million solar panels will produce enough electricity to run 771,000 homes, more than in all of Wyoming.

Under the agreement, Meta will pay to build many miles of new roads around the facility as well as install water and sewer lines. The company has a longstanding policy to work with the communities they are in and will try to mitigate any issues as they arise.

The project is expected to bring significant economic benefits to the Cheyenne area, but some neighbors have expressed concerns about the noise and traffic the facility will cause in their neighborhood. However, Meta officials have stated that they are committed to being a good neighbor and member of the community.

This development comes as Meta continues to expand its global presence and invest in new technologies. The company owns and operates 24 data centers globally and 20 in the U.S., covering 53 million square feet with an investment of nearly $30 billion. Project Cosmo would be one of the company's smaller data centers. The largest in Altoona, Iowa, covers 5 million square feet.

Cheyenne already has a Microsoft data center and a few other data centers. The installation of the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center is credited with putting the capital city on the map for high-tech investments like Project Cosmo.

The data center is expected to be a major boon for the local economy and bring new job opportunities to the area. However, it remains to be seen how the facility will impact the surrounding community and environment.
