first_imgWE Day, a powerful series of educational events that combines the energy of a live concert with the inspiration of extraordinary stories of leadership and change, announces the full list of speakers and performers attending WE Day Minnesota on November 3, 2015 at the Xcel Energy Center.Alongside partners led by National Co-Title Sponsor Allstate Insurance Company, WE Day Minnesota will bring together over 18,000 students in an inspirational setting, celebrating the commitment they have made to take action on local and global causes they care about.Taking the stage this year is a cast of new faces and returning WE Day favorites, including Ciara, Darren Criss, Chelsea Clinton, Lily Collins, Nico & Vinz, Natalie La Rose, Rowan Blanchard, Marlee Matlin, Dr. Mae Jemison, Henry Winkler, Kenyan Boys Choir, Kardinal Offishall, Spencer West and more. This star-studded lineup will join international activists and WE Day co-founders, Craig and Marc Kielburger, to share their passion for change and international experiences, and energize the crowd with unforgettable performances and motivational speeches.“WE Day is a powerful thing — it brings together young people from across America with the goal of inspiring and empowering them to make a difference,” said Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and producer, Ciara. “I can’t wait to be a part of WE Day Minnesota and learn about the amazing actions students have taken to earn their way to WE Day celebrations.”Joining the lineup above on stage will be local young people with inspiring personal stories, like Pia Phillips and Abbie Nelson. At the age of 14 Pia received her diagnosis of Stage 2A Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and at 13, Abbie was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Having spent much of their adolescence in hospitals, the pair knew how therapeutic the comforts of home could be during long hospital stays. The two, along with Abbie’s mom, Martha Dayton, created PAB’S PACKS, a non-profit organization that provides custom backpacks filled with comfort items for hospitalized teens suffering from chronic illnesses. Abbie and Pia are just two of the many young people who will share their story to motivate their WE Day peers.WE Day is an inspirational event like no other, bringing together like-minded individuals and providing a platform for youth to learn about some of today’s most pressing issues and how to be a part of the solution. WE Day celebrates and inspires this generation’s shift from me to we — towards acting with intention, leading with compassion and a belief in the power of community. Taking the philanthropic world by storm with 14 stadium events in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., WE Day is one of the world’s largest registered non-profit initiatives on social media, with more than five million followers.“WE Day is a growing movement of young people taking action locally and globally to create a better world for today and the generation of tomorrow,” said Craig Kielburger, co-founder of WE Day. “The actions youth lead to achieve transformative outcomes is helping the world think more about we and less about me. In just one year, over 197,000 Minnesota students involved in WE Day’s yearlong educational initiative volunteered nearly 700,000 hours of their time and raised more than $835,000 in support of local and global organizations. Today’s youth can conquer anything they put their minds to when provided with the right tools.”More than a one-day event, WE Day is connected to the yearlong WE Schools program, which provides hands-on, student-led campaigns designed to enhance a school’s existing social initiatives or to spark new ones. WE Schools helps young people turn the day’s inspiration into sustained action. By taking action on one local and one global cause, students are equipped with the tools to succeed academically, in the working world and as active citizens. Together, WE Day and WE Schools are a blueprint for building the next generation of global change-makers.You can’t buy a ticket to WE Day — students from across the country earn their way by the actions they take on local and global causes of their choice. WE Day is free of charge to the thousands of students and educators in attendance, thanks to the generous support of partners led by National Co-Title Sponsor Allstate Insurance Company.Find out more here.last_img read more

“Let me assure you and those of our colleagues who are working in field operations, whether in Afghanistan, Kosovo or Congo, that your safety and theirs is a constant concern of mine and now the General Assembly is taking up this issue,” Mr. Annan told the staff in Geneva, his first overseas visit since the 11 September attacks against the United States. The Assembly is currently considering a set of proposals put forward by the Secretary-General to shore up UN security measures worldwide. In a question-and-answer session which followed, the Secretary-General addressed a range of issues, including Afghanistan, terrorism and the situation in the Middle East.Concerning the humanitarian effort on behalf of millions of Afghans, Mr. Annan stressed the UN was working as hard as possible under very difficult circumstances. “I hope that the military action will be completed as soon as possible so that we can resume our humanitarian work in earnest in an environment which will be more secure,” he said. The Secretary-General also noted that the UN “is likely to be given another major assignment” depending on what happens in Afghanistan. He emphasized that the Afghan parties themselves must reach agreement on a broad-based Government, adding, “I hope that once it is done, we will be able to give them all the technical and administrative support and assistance that we can.” Answering a question of one staff member, Mr. Annan said he was in full agreement with the view that the root causes of terrorism needed to be confronted. “We need to fight [terrorism] on many fronts,” he said, “not just sending in police or intelligence people or military, but we have to make conditions that dissuade people from getting engaged in these sorts of activities in the first place.” In response to a question about the situation in the Middle East, Mr. Annan said the search for peace was being actively pursued. “I, over the months, have been very active behind the scenes, working with the Americans, Europeans and Russians to try and see if there cannot be a collective international effort to break the impasse, and move forward, and press the parties forward, and get them back to the negotiating table,” he said. “The efforts are continuing, and I hope we will see some results.” Also today, the Secretary-General visited the headquarters of the World Health Organization (WHO), where he met privately with Director-General Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland for a review of progress in setting up the Global AIDS and Health Fund. They also discussed bio-terrorism and the situation in Afghanistan. The Secretary-General also met with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Ruud Lubbers, to discuss the challenges of providing assistance to Afghan refugees. read more

The work of the Cameroon-Nigeria Mixed Commission marking the boundary between the two West African countries could be delayed because Nigeria “regrettably” has decided to skip verification of the line in a village in the pilot project, the United Nations Office for West Africa (UNOWA) said today. “The pilot project is an extremely important endeavour and marks the beginning of the actual demarcation exercise, which has been entrusted to the Mixed Commission. Stalling the process is not an acceptable course of action. The work must continue,” Mixed Commission Chairman and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General (SRSG) for West Africa Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah said.The procedures for the field assessment had been mutually agreed and laid out in guidelines in February 2005 in Abuja, Nigeria, but had not been adhered to, he said.The Mixed Commission Joint Technical Team’s demarcation of the boundary between Cameroon and Nigeria started on Wednesday last week with the pilot field assessment aimed at identifying pillar sites and verifying in the field the line as drawn on preliminary maps. The maps cover a 60-kilometre stretch of the border near Dumo, according to the delimitation established by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in its October 2002 judgement. read more

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Cooking like Martha Stewart is about to get easier.The home goods mogul and cookbook author is getting into the fast-growing meal kit business. Subscribers will get a box shipped to their door with Stewart’s recipes and all the ingredients needed to cook up the dishes at home, including pre-measured raw meat, fish, vegetables and spices.“It is, I think, the way to cook for the future,” Stewart said.The new venture is a licensing deal with existing meal kit company Marley Spoon and brand management company Sequential Brands Group Inc., which bought Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia last year. Financial details of the new partnership were not disclosed.Marley Spoon will be renamed Martha & Marley Spoon in the U.S. and will tap Stewart’s library of thousands of recipes, including shrimp tortilla soup and chicken thighs pan-fried in coconut oil.Ready-to-cook meal kits have proliferated in recent years and have been popular with city folk who want to skip the supermarket and still whip up a meal at home. People around the world spent $1.5 billion on meal kits last year, with less than half of that coming from the U.S., according to research group Technomic. The U.S. market is expected to grow to as much as $6 billion in the next four years, Technomic said.Stewart joins other famous names in the space. TV chef Jamie Oliver appears in commercials for rival HelloFresh and cookbook author Mark Bittman joined vegan meal kit company Purple Carrot last year.Competition has been heating up recently and Marley Spoon hopes adding Stewart’s name will set it apart from Blue Apron, HelloFresh, Plated and many other companies that ship boxes of raw food.Stewart said she tried all the rivals but was “hooked” on Marley Spoon. She began talks with Marley Spoon about a deal eight months ago.The kits may show up on Stewart’s social media accounts, her magazines and TV shows.“We have many ways to promote it,” said Stewart, who is a chief creative officer at Sequential and sits on its board of directors.Martha & Marley Spoon kits start at $48 a week for two meals for two people and up to $140 a week for four meals for a family. Prep and cook time is less than 40 minutes, the company said.Marley Spoon has been operating in the U.S. for a year and has been shipping meal kits in Europe and Australia for about 18 months. It ships in nearly 40 states. The company does not specify how many boxes it ships, but said it’s in the millions annually. Blue Apron and HelloFresh have said they ship millions of boxes a month.For now, Marley Spoon won’t be adding Stewart’s name to its international businesses, but it may in the future.“We’re starting now here in the U.S. because everybody knows Martha,” said Marley Spoon CEO Fabian Siegel. “But why not, in the future, try it out somewhere else? I think that’s something we’ll look at.”_____ONLINE:Martha & Marley Spoon: Joseph Pisani at . His work can be found at .

Subhadra Das, Curator at UCL Culture, said: “Bentham revolutionised our idea of what death is.“When Bentham donated his body for the advancement of science it was considered a social taboo, but his ideas framed the Anatomy Act 1832 that allowed medical practitioners and students to dissect donated bodies.“The memorial rings also help to highlight how attitudes to death and memory have changed over time. The rings and the lock of hair might seem morbid to some today, but it was fairly common practice at the time.“Our modern, western views of death come from the early 20th Century when World War I made grief a luxury and the psychological theories of Sigmund Freud encouraged its repression. I think the Victorians would find our attitude to death rather cold.”Of the rings discovered by UCL, three are engraved with the names of their owners publisher and bookseller William Tait (1793–1814), the Belgian politician Sylvain van de Weyer (1802–72), and the other great utilitarian philosopher John Stuart Mill (1806–73).Mill’s ring was discovered in a jewellery shop in New Orleans, suggesting the remaining rings could be spread throughout the world.UCL also has an unidentified ring and two others are known to be in the possession of the descendants of William Stockwell, one of Bentham’s servants, while a ring bequeathed to the French economist, Jean-Baptiste Say was recently sold at auction by Christie’s.However, the whereabouts of the remaining twenty rings remain unknown and they are hoping the descendants of the original owners may be able to help. One ring was seen painted on the finger of  José Cecilio del Valle (1780–1834),the Guatemalan philosopher and politician. “We can safely assume that José del Valle received one, as he is featured wearing it in a portrait,” added Dr Causer.“Interestingly, on the bookshelf of that portrait is one of Bentham’s works as well as a Spanish translation of Say’s Traité d’économie politique. It’s a neat, tangible link between Bentham, Say, and del Valle.”Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the rings should contact UCL.The 26 individuals whom Bentham said in his will should receive a ring:         Dr Neil Arnott (1788–1874), Scottish physician and inventor.

He also argued for the rights of women, for homosexuality to be legalised.A notable eccentric, Bentham called his walking stick Dapple, his teapot Dickey, and kept an elderly cat named The Reverend Sir John Langbourne.But it was his loathing of the church which he described as ‘nonsense on stilts’ which led him to donating his organs to medical science and insisting his body be placed on public display.

The mourning ring The mourning ring It might be considered the ultimate memento mori to have your body wired and stuffed so you can be wheeled out at parties after death.But eccentric philosopher Jeremy Bentham went a step further in ensuring that his friends did not forget him by bequeathing rings containing his bust in silhouette and strands of hair.The social reformer who died in 1832, began making plans for his legacy from the age of 21, insisting his body be preserved as an ‘auto-icon’ and leaving a list of 26 individuals who were to receive a special mourning ring.University College London (UCL) where Bentham’s body remains on display, has managed to track down six of the rings, but is hunting for the missing 20.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––The silhouette portraits of Bentham were created by the artist John Field, who at the time was working by appointment to William IV and Queen Adelaide.“The mourning rings were probably commissioned by Bentham in 1822, when he had his silhouette painted by Field,” said Dr Tim Causer, UCL Bentham Project.“We also know that on 2 November 1822 Bentham’s secretary took some of his hair to Field and his partner John Miers for the rings,” said Dr Tim Causer, UCL Bentham Project. read more

first_imgToday, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, the Chamber of Mines of South Africa, Mining Indaba, the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) and South Africa’s Department of Mineral Resources stood together to engage with the Alternative Mining Indaba (AMI). Collectively, the industry bodies represented say they “are pleased to have had the opportunity to engage with the AMI and to include their views in the discussions taking place at the world’s biggest mining conference. ““We are pleased to be engaging with the AMI and the communities it represents. To enable true engagement in the mining industry and to work towards a sustainable future, Mining Indaba believes in bringing together all stakeholders,” said Mining Indaba MD, Alex Grose.The Mining Indaba, under the guidance of its Advisory Board, has over the past two years spent a lot of time and effort to truly engage with all the mining community. “Our goal is to deliver a world-class event, but also to create a platform for ongoing engagement between different groups,” said Grose. Following the acceptance of the memorandum from the AMI last year, there has been extensive engagement with the organisation. As a result, Mining Indaba has made a number of changes to its agenda. These include sustainability-focused content included for the full duration of the event, with the Sustainability Day given more prominence. Community voices have been incorporated throughout the program. In addition, a group of AMI delegates attended the Sustainability Day yesterday.Grose reiterates the true purpose of the event: “Mining Indaba is a platform for engagement. We value the views of all stakeholders in the industry and will continue to work with all parties to help facilitate dialogue between communities, mining companies, governments, investors and others”.last_img read more

first_imgAustralian media organisations are being urged to recruit more journalists from new and emerging migrant communities in a bid to combat “thinly-veiled racism and misrepresentation in mainstream media”.The recommendation was among a series of actions proposed at the inaugural National Conference on Media, Migration and Integration, co-hosted in Melbourne last month by Africa Media Australia and the National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasters Council (NEMBC).“In light of recent statements from new ABC boss Michelle Guthrie to create more diversity at the national broadcaster, it may be the right time for commercial media to realise that it’s imperative for their viability that they address the diversity issue,” said the NEMBC’s chief executive officer, Russell Anderson, adding that diversity in the media is about more than just representation on the screen and in newspapers.“It’s about the stories that get told, the issues that get covered, the voices that get heard. It’s about creating a range of voices, accents, languages, and, most importantly, values,” he said.The two-day event was opened by Victoria’s Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Robin Scott and featured presentations by some of Australia’s most influential social justice campaigners, including World Vision CEO Tim Costello, chairman of the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission John Searle, and Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs Inga Peulich.Among the recommendations for increasing accurate representation of migrant communities were the appointment of a diversity officer, running regular forums to maintain communication between media and new migrant communities, the creation of social media forums to promote multicultural media representation, and training existing journalists on diversity and cultural competency, among various others.Africa Media Australia’s Clyde Sharady said that while most of the recommendations had been proposed before, highlighting them again would help media bosses overcome “the culture of thinly-veiled racism and misrepresentation” that often clouds their coverage of new and emerging migrant communities, often hindering the perception of them.“Most of these actions have been proposed before, but to have them all laid out as a single blueprint provides a ground-breaking opportunity for media organisations that really care about equality and social justice to start addressing these issues in a coherent way,” he said.

first_img The official numbers are in and Star Wars Celebration packed in over a record breaking 70,000 attendees at this year’s show! With the event now a fond memory of the past, I thought it would be fun to break down all the official announcements that were released over the course of the event and share some of the groundbreaking details with you all.40 YEARS OF STAR WARS: This was definitely the event to attend this year! Hosted by Warwick Davis, this event packed in so many punches; it left fans (myself included) speechless with tons of on-stage surprises such as…-Kathleen Kennedy bringing out George Lucas-Stories from the original films with Anthony Daniels, Billy D. Williams and Peter Mayhew-Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni talks a bit about being Lucas’s apprentice-Warm wishes were sent over of prequel vets Samuel L. Jackson and Liam Neeson-Ian McDiarmid and Hayden Christensen sharing their favorite moments from the prequel films-The classic duo reunited; Mark Hamill and surprise guest Harrison Ford remember their fallen Princess-Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd pays tribute to her mother -A performance by John Williams accompanied by the Orlando Philharmonic OrchestraFans who attended the event were given a numbered print commemorating Carrie as Princess Leia with one simple quote at the bottom. “May the Force be with you.” This was truly the perfect send off all Star Wars fans that weekend needed and really set a tone for the rest of the Celebration to just have fun!THE LAST JEDI: While fans waited in line overnight to get their first gimps of the second new film in the Star Wars three part trilogy, director Rian Johnson showed up to sign and meet everyone in line. Later that morning actor Josh Gad (the official troll of The Last Jedi) hosted the star-studded panel by bringing out the forces behind the film, Kathleen Kennedy, and Rian Johnson. After they had shared what little moments they could, fans lit up as stars John Boyega, and Daisy Ridley took to the stage. BB-8 came out as well and introduced a new member to the team, Kelly Marie Tran who plays a resistance maintenance worker named Rose. Then it was time for the Master Jedi himself to take to the stage as Mark Hamill came out to thunderous applause. Finally, the group showed off what fans had been waiting all night for. The teaser trailer of The Last Jedi! Afterward, fans were also given a numbered print of the official The Last Jedi poster, which was also shown off for the first time at the event.REBELS FAREWELL: Show creator Dave Filoni took to the stage with the entire crew of Star Wars Rebels which included Freddie Prinze Jr, Taylor Gray, Tiya Sircar, Vanessa Marshall and Steve Blum. They all discussed what they could about the fourth season of the series, while at the same time dropping a detonator on fans that this would be the final season of the series. We did learn however that Thrawn will be back in the final season, along with his bodyguard from the books Rukh; who will be voiced by Star Wars vet Warwick Davis. Fans also were presented with a trailer to the final season along with a surprise first episode that the cast viewed with fans for the first time.BATTLEFRONT II: Fans of the original game have been wanting a single player campaign for quite a while, and at this year’s Celebration, it was announced that itch would finally get scratched. Matt Webster (executive producer), Bernd Diemer (creative director), Mark Thompson (game director) and one other took to the stage to share a bit about the new game. We learned that the campaign will pick up right at the end of Return of the Jedi as you play a Imperial special forces commander named Iden Versio. She and her team witness the destruction of the Death Star on the planet Endor and swear vengeance on the Rebels. Christie Golden came out to talk a bit about her companion novel to the game, Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad which will tell a bit more of Iden’s story. Steve Blank from Lucas films story group was also on hand to discuss the major tie-ins. We saw a trailer which showed off a cinematic collage of new heroes battling including Rey and Kylo Ren. We also saw prequel characters like Darth Maul and the very spry Yoda in the mix.DISNEY STAR WARS PARKS: We were among the first to see new renderings and details about the new Star Wars themed lands that are currently being built at both Disneyland and Disney World. The creative minds behind Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm took to the stage to speak with attendees about what all we might see in one of the most interactive Star Wars experiences ever. Once at the park you come to an outpost on a whole new planet with immersive characters, a cantina, traders and of course rides! One will have you pilot the Millennium Falcon. The other ride will put you smack in the middle of the Resistance of the First Order. We then saw renderings of areas around the cantina and streets. It was also said that there is something for every kind of Star Wars fan, no matter where you came into the series. Its all about the unique experience that feels new to all fans.So there you have it! Five of the biggest panels at this year’s show were conquered, and I could not be more excited for what is to come. Even though there were a few snafus here and there, the overall Celebration experience is quite unmatched by anything else I have ever attended. Star Wars fans are some of the nicest and kind people I’ve ever met and to have them all together in one building was something special. I enjoyed every minute of it and hoped to be back in the coming years. Thank you all for checking out my coverage and May the Force be with you all.All photos provided by Stay on target Star Wars x Adidas Ultraboost Photos Have Leaked’Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form last_img read more

first_imgStay on target Play ‘Fallout 76’ Nuclear Winter Battle Royale as Long as Yo…Fallout 76’s Bags Are Broken, Too The user had to exploit a number of cheats and bugs in order to finish the games in record time. While some may see this as cheating, the speedrunner isn’t doing anything that isn’t already possible in the base games. In fact, most speedrunners achieve low completion times because they take advantage of in-game quirks. This user should be judged on the same basis as everyone else.In other Fallout news, singer Dion DiMucci is currently taking Bethesda to court over their “repugnant” use of one of his songs in a Fallout 4 commercial. Though he made a general agreement with Universal for his songs to be used in ads, he claims that he still needed to be personally asked for approval. According to DiMucci, the commercial is filled with “morally indefensible images.” He also says if he had known what his song, The Wanderer, would be used for, that he wouldn’t have agreed to let Bethesda use it. He is seeking $1 million in damages for the case, along with legal costs.

Because of that, seeing a person speedrun through any of the titles is impressive. One gamer decided this wasn’t good enough, and went about finishing every single game in the series in under two hours.This amazing feat was accomplished by a YouTuber who goes by the (hilarious) handle of tomatoanus, who finished every game in 1 hour and 37 minutes. He played each game consecutively without taking a break. According to the video description, tomatoanus was pleased with his overall run, though he felt the Fallout: New Vegas portion could have gone better. Even if he feels this run wasn’t one hundred percent perfect, it is still far beyond what most Fallout players are capable of achieving.last_img read more

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Today is the day many of us have waited for! That’s right, Spider-Man is finally available for everyone to buy on PlayStation 4. As I said in my review, this is a spectacular game. We’ve seen and played many Spider-Man titles over the years, but this Insomniac Games developed Spidey adventure is easily the best one ever released. It not only has brilliant combat and traversal mechanics, but it also has a strong emphasis on Peter Parker and his world. The game easily surpasses any and all expectations. It is the ultimate Spider-Man gaming experience.Spider-Man is a relatively accessible title. For the most part, you’re able to jump into the game and have a good time. It generally does a nice job of explaining all of its various mechanics. With that said, there’s nothing wrong with a little guidance. That’s where we come in. Below, we outline several things to keep in mind during the first few hours. Take these as suggestions since it’s best to chart your own course. But if you want to get the most out of the game, I think these helpful tips will enhance your experience.You’re Spider-Man, Not BatmanSpider-Man and the Batman Arkham games have similar combat mechanics. Both heroes are able to bounce around from enemy to enemy and unleash a series of quick strikes. They also have a sixth sense which warns them whenever a foe is about to land an attack. Though the combat systems share common elements, they aren’t exactly the same. If you try to fight the same way you would in Batman Arkham, you won’t last long.Spider-Man is an extremely fast and agile hero thanks to his spider powers. He also has a wide array of gadgets and abilities. To get the most out of combat, players should remember to use as many of these as possible. Never stay in one spot, or the bad guys will get the drop on you. Eliminate goons with firearms immediately. Use the environment and enemy weapons against them. Web up bigger thugs so you can deal with the riff raff. And of course, don’t ignore your spider-sense. It’ll save your bacon more than you realize.While there are certain rules to follow, the combat system is designed in a way that allows players to express themselves. Experiment with various techniques to see which gadgets and abilities suit you best. Also, don’t get discouraged if you die. Take that as an opportunity to get better. Spider-Man is challenging, but it’s always fair. With time and a little bit of patience, you’ll soon master combat.Do the side missionsLike most open-world titles, Spider-Man has a load of side quests to complete. These include enemy bases to clear out, combat, stealth, and speed challenges, missions for citizens, and capturing pigeons. That’s right, Spider-Man catches pigeons when he’s off the clock. There are also a ton of collectibles hidden in the world, and of course, random crimes to prevent. If you need a break from the story, there’s plenty of additional content to indulge in.While it might be tempting to forgo doing side quests, it’s best to complete as many as possible. Every quest rewards players with experience points which in turn grants them skill points. These are used to gain new abilities, gadgets, suits, and more. Also, the side quests are just plain fun. They’re different enough where they don’t feel repetitive but short enough to compel you to do more. Doing side quests also gives you a better appreciation for Spider-Man’s world. More so than punching super villains in the face, these side quests feel like things Spider-Man would actually do. Even if it’s catching pigeons.Upgrades are importantYou can unlock a wide range of skills and gadgets by earning experience points or using tokens earned during side quests and main missions. Skill and gadgets give Spidey more options during combat or allow him to web-swing more effectively. Like I said in my review, the game isn’t stingy with experience points. This means you’ll frequently have access to new skills and gadgets. This not only makes the game easier, but keeps it from becoming too repetitive since you’ll always have new tricks to try out.Skills are broken down into three parts. Innovator skills mostly focus on web-based abilities. They let you web up foes from perches, grab their weapons with your webs, use them as wrecking balls, and more. Defender allows Spidey to dodge attacks, slow time down after dodging, gain extra focus to perform special attacks, strike the ground to stun multiple enemies, and more. Webslinger lets Spider-Man get around the city faster, but it also has a couple of web-based attacks.Gadgets are pretty neat. You can upgrade your web shooters or enhance them to shoot impact and electric webs. Both of those upgrades are great for incapacitating large crowds. Then there are gadgets like the web bomb, spider drones, trip mines, suspension matrix, and a concussive blast. Like the aforementioned web shooter enhancements, these gadgets also help with crowd control.In all honesty, it’s best to unlock everything equally. You get more out of the game when you have a large repertoire of abilities at your disposal. Of course, you’ll need to have the appropriate amount of tokens and skill points to unlock abilities. If you want to focus on specific abilities, that’s all well and good. But I highly suggest you just go down the line of each skill or gadget tree and unlock everything as it becomes available.Visit radio towersMost open-world games have towers for players to climb. Spider-Man is no different. Every section of Manhattan has at least one radio tower in it. Once there, you’re able to view more of the map after completing a mini-game. You’ll see items of interest such as side missions, collectibles, and random crimes. All of those give you experience points and tokens, so it’s best to unlock as many towers as possible early on. There’s a lot to see and do so you definitely don’t want to have any dark areas on your map.Keep in mind that you cannot unlock every single tower at the beginning. The game keeps you cordoned off to specific areas in the early portions. However, it doesn’t take long before you’re free to visit every corner of the city. That’s when you should go nuts and find every tower. Even if a sector’s map is dark, you’re still able to see its respective towers. So go out there and open up the entire map to see everything there is to do.Clothes make the (spider) manSpider-Man gets a fancy new costume in this game, but that isn’t the only suit available. As you progress, you’ll unlock new costumes. Some are based on existing suits from comics and movies while others are unique to the game. In addition to making Spider-Man look stylish, each costume comes has its own special ability. Most give you a specific combat ability, but some allow you to get around easier or find hidden items in the world. Some are kind of goofy, but every costume is worth having.The best part is that you can mix different costumes and abilities. For example, you can wear Spider-Man’s classic outfit but use the abilities associated with the Iron Spider suit. This gives players a great deal of freedom. They can appear how they want and still use their preferred abilities. This goes back to what I said about the importance of side quests. If you want to unlock every suit, you’ll have to complete most side missions. Trust me, it’s well worth your time.Need more Spider-Man right now?

The wave, according to 1 Wave Challenge founder and Valley View Casino Center General Manager, Ernie Hahn recalled, swept up many of the surfers in the lineup, leading spotters to believe that the surfers may have ridden a wave into history.Upon review of film footage, however, the wave that participants had pinned their hopes on came up short of the 111 surfers – standing in unison for a  five-second glide – required to break the standing world record.​”It was an incredible experience surfing into history with the ​1 Wave Challenge,” Hahn said. “As I expected, San Diegans came out on a beautiful Southern California morning to support an event that brought together Boys to Men, the Century Club of San Diego and the Farmers Insurance Open for an important cause. Everyone who participated in the 1 Wave Challenge is a winner. I’m proud to have been part of such an inspiring community effort.”​Official Judge and Wave Wrangler  Eric “Bird” Huffman took the results to heart, but expressed his determination to lead the way to victory next year. “Although the current record was not broken, the event was very well attended with fun had by all.  Surf conditions were not in our favor this morning. The consistent North-West swell of 3-5 foot waves and strong rip currents made for a challenging morning in the water.”The World Record Breaking 1 Wave Challenge & Beach Run invited surfers to share a single wave for the benefit of Boys to Men Mentoring Network, a San Diego nonprofit dedicated to guiding and supporting high-risk and fatherless boys on their journey to manhood. Fueled by Boys to Men’s partnership with The Century Club of San Diego’s Champions for Youth campaign and a generous Title Sponsorship by Dr. Bronner’s All One!, the 1 Wave Challenge shared the weekend with the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open golf tournament.In addition to offering surfers the chance to break the world record for the most surfers riding a single wave into shore, the 1 Wave Challenge & Beach Run offered 65 runners the chance to participate in an exhilarating 5-mile trek stretching from La Jolla Shores, to Blacks Beach, and to the southern rim of the Torrey Pines Golf Course where the Farmers Insurance Open unfolded. An alternative 5K Beach Run/Walk ensured that 99 joggers and walkers, including families, joined in the fun.Envisioned as a counterpoint fundraiser to Boys to Men’s successful 100 Wave Challenge, the 1 Wave Challenge & Beach Run immerses hundreds of surfers and runners in Boys to Men’s inspiring mission, empowering them to expand the positive impact the organization is making in the lives of hundreds of teenage boys.

first_imgAccording to Popular Science executive editor Mike Haney, Mag+ is built around a type of XML-based file format it calls MIB (the Mag+ Issue Bundle). MIB is a way to package all aspects of a magazine’s content (text, images, etc.) in a standardized way so that the app, “which is essentially an MIB-reader, can render them with our unique functionality and architecture,” he says. With the Mag+ project already rolling, the PopSci team spent the 62 days following Apple’s launch announcement crunching code and translating the fundamentals from Mag+ to create the app, called Popular Science+. The process was accomplished entirely in-house.“The coding of the actual app occurred entirely between that announcement and the launch, a feat made even more impressive by the fact that it’s not simply a one-off app but a platform that we can and will roll out to Bonnier’s other titles in the U.S. and Europe, and license to other publishers as well,” Haney tells FOLIO:. “It was always a goal to be there at or as close as possible to launch [of the iPad], and we knew that with the groundwork we’d laid and the excellent team we had, we could get there.”In terms of user experience, Popular Science+ was guided by the six design principles laid out in Mag+ which, according to Haney, is more about recreating the reading experience than translating content to a new device. Some of those design principles include “fluid motion” story-to-story navigation, reduced complexity to encourage the “lean back” reading experience, and advertising as content—in that “attractive advertising is as much a part of the magazine experience as the editorial content,” Haney says.“We’ve long believed that only with a full-color, large-screen, touch-interface device like the iPad could the magazine experience be faithfully recreated digitally, and we think Popular Science+ bears out that assumption,” he continues. “So the challenge of where to begin the iPad project was less about ‘How do we make the magazine on a tablet?’ and more one of simply getting the code and functionality right for this particular device.”Haney says the magazine sees its April issue (the first on the iPad) as a “first step” in the design process. “We have additional features, including search and a special ‘heated’ mode that lets you clip and share content, that we plan to roll out in the next few months,” he says. “And we hope the Mag+ platform will never be static but will continually evolve and grow based on our own ongoing learning and on feedback from our readers.” SEE ALSO: Popular Science’s iPad App Launch EventMagazine and newspaper publishers across the country spent the few short weeks between when Apple officially announced its plans to unveil a tablet e-reading device and when the iPad debuted to consumers this past weekend scrambling to develop an application so that their publication would be compatible with it.Others, like Bonnier Corp., began imagining what its magazines would look like on tablet devices several months ago. The publisher partnered last year with London-based design firm BERG to produce the Mag+ project, which is aimed at solving some of the core challenges of translating print content to a touch-based tablet device.last_img read more

The content is provided for information purposes only. According to Guerin, a scientist at the Institute d’Optique Graduate School in Palaiseau (south of Paris), in order for an atom laser to be practicable for many applications, a method for creating longer wavelengths needs to be found. And, with his colleagues from Aspect’s Atom Optics Group of the Laboratoire Charles Fabry, he has. An article published in Physical Review Letters by Guerin and his coworkers Riou and Gaebler from the team led by Josse and Bouyer, is titled “Guided Quasicontinuous Atom Laser”; it demonstrates how this longer wavelength can be achieved.“By making our atom laser into a wave carrier, we can get rid of the acceleration of gravity,” says Guerin. “We can create an atom laser with a constant.” The French team’s Letter describes how such a laser works with trapped Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC):“The BEC, in a state sensitive to both trapping potentials, is submitted to a rf outcoupler yielding atoms in a state sensitive only to the optical potential, resulting in an atom laser propagating along the weak confining axis of the optical trap.”“By using quasicontinuous outcoupling,” Guerin further explains, “we can get a beam with much less interaction.” A guided quasicontinuous atom laser, such the one described, would allow for better atomic motion control during propagation. Better atomic control would pave the way for more coherent atom sources for use in atom interferometry. Additionally, this set-up for a guided atom laser has the potential to provide a variety of other useful future applications. Quantum transport is another field that could benefit from the work performed by the team led by Josse and Bouyer. The members of the team, though, are especially interested in the interferometry aspects illuminated by this new type of atom laser: “We could use this scheme not only to guide atom laser beams, but also to separate and then recombine them to get an interferometer, which can be used to measure rotations or accelerations.” Guerin also points out that such interferometer could also be realized on atom chips.Designs that can produce atom-wave interferometry can yield progress in sensor technology. One of these technologies, says Guerin, includes “Creating a gyroscope with coherent atomic beams.” The applications and information that could come from the work by the team in France are varied and many. But rather than getting too carried away with the future, Guerin sticks with the basics. “There are two main points that we have realized because of this work,” he says. “First, we have a well-defined and large wavelength. This is new.” He continues his explanation: “And, second, we can control the amounts of interaction. It is great that we can control the flux of the atom laser, by controlling the flux, we control the density inside the beam.” And it is great for the world of atomic science as well.By Miranda Marquit, Copyright 2006 Explore further Is random lasing possible with a cold atom cloud?center_img One of the biggest differences between photons and atoms is that the latter are massive particles, making gravity is a huge factor. It can be seen as an advantage when designing new high accuracy atom interferometers based inertial sensors, but can be a major drawback when controlling atom laser beams. “Gravity makes for higher velocity,” William Guerin explains to, “and that means wavelengths become small.” Citation: Guiding an Atom Laser (2006, November 24) retrieved 18 August 2019 from read more

first_imgWhen Laibi Oinam got in the front seat of a second-hand auto-rickshaw as a driver almost a decade ago, she received a lot of negative attention from people in her home state of Manipur in northeast India. But her life took a new turn in 2015 when her struggle to get passengers and earn her daily bread to support her ailing husband and young sons caught a filmmakers attention. Now in her 50s, Laibi has bought herself a new auto-rickshaw, her younger son is inching closer to his football dream and she enjoys respect in the same society that once looked down upon her for driving an auto and breaking another glass ceiling for women without really knowing it. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfLaibi says that she didn’t take up the job of an autodriver in 2011 to challenge stereotypes. Her husband’s deteriorating health and sons’ education demanded more money. What she earned by working in a brick kiln was insufficient. So, she collected money through chit fund and bought a second-hand auto. “I rented it out to others but we didn’t get much money out of it. Meanwhile my husband got unwell, so I decided to start driving,” Laibi said. Whether it is fighting for a cause or selling vegetables or handloom weaving, traditional male bastions, women in Manipur have always been in the forefront of society. But the same can’t be said about autodrivers. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”When I started driving auto in 2011, I used to wear phanek (traditional wear of Manipuri women). Later on, I changed to pants as people often refused to take rides because of my gender and outfit,” said Laibi, who learnt how to drive on a Vespa. Since the sight of women autodrivers was not a common one in Manipur, it caught the attention of film director Meena Longjam. “I met her in 2012. It was an accidental encounter. There were many male autodrivers in the market and then there was this one woman waiting to get passengers in her auto. I had never thought that a woman could drive an auto in Manipur,” said the Madras Christian College alumnus. An article on Laibi piqued Meena’s interest. “Someone had written an article on her. Then I thought of talking to her. Also, I remember back in 2011, there was an economic blockade in Manipur for so many months that it crippled all of us. I thought of sending out a message to people through my film. “I wanted to show how despite all the problems in the state, a woman is working hard to support her family,” said the filmmaker. The documentary Autodriver is barely of 30 minutes but Meena gave about three years of her life to it. “While talking to her, I noticed that Laibi has big dreams for her children. Though one of her sons had to drop out of a Sainik school due to her financial condition, she still dreams big. She wants her elder son to become an IAS officer and younger son a footballer. “Her journey is very emotional. She does all the household chores and then heads out to earn money as an autodriver – a challenging job for a woman in Manipur,” she added. The emotional story connected with many. It even bagged the best social issue film in the non-feature category at the 63rd edition of National Film awards. “Now I am a known face. A lot of people have started supporting me. Even traffic police officials don’t bother me much. My younger son is studying in a football academy in Chandigarh. The elder one is almost done with his graduation. I earn around Rs 1,000 per day,” said Laibi. She also revealed that the amount is almost twice what she earned when she started out on her challenging journey.. So once her sons start earning, will she quit driving? About that, Laibi said, “I know how to make ‘phee’ (traditional Manipuri handloom long scarf) but I don’t enjoy doing it. I think I will drive my auto all my life. I like driving. It suits me.”last_img read more
