17YearOld injured in runaway truck crash in Rancho Penasquitos

first_img July 11, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A 17-year-old boy was hospitalized tonight with non life threatening injuries he suffered when he was ejected from his vehicle after it crashed into a retaining wall and fence in the Rancho Penasquitos area of San Diego.The boy was traveling southbound in the 9400 block of Paseo Montril when his 2003 Ford pickup stalled and he tried to push it off the road, but it gained speed and began to get away from him, according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.The victim jumped through the driver’s side window to try to regain control of the truck and was hanging out the window when the truck slammed into a retaining wall and fence, ejecting him from the truck. The vehicle continued down an embankment, overturned and hit a tree, Heims said.The teen suffered a broken leg, a deep cut to his left thigh and a concussion and was taken to a hospital with non life threatening injuries, Heims said.Alcohol was not considered a factor in the crash.Anyone with information about this accident was asked to call San Diego Traffic Division detectives at 858-495-7800.

MegStar International opens new highstakes VIP poker club at Macau Jockey Club

first_imgMeg-Star International has launched a new VIP gaming facility focusing on high-stakes poker at Macau Jockey Club Casino.Located within Macau Roosevelt Hotel, Poker Time Club is a collaboration between Meg-Star  International and Switzerland’s Swiss Time Group and described as the only large Texas Hold’em Poker Club in the world to offer a top-level watch appreciation service.Its features include five ring-shaped VIP rooms primarily designated for poker plus two baccarat tables, an open-air lounge and various leisure facilities. Stakes on the poker tables are said to range from HK$300/$600 to HK$5,000/HK$10,000.Poker Time Club covers the space formerly occupied by the casino’s mass gaming floor, marking a shift to a VIP-only gaming property.Located alongside Macau’s horse racing track, the Macau Roosevelt Hotel has always been difficult to access for the influx of mass tourists heading to the Cotai Strip, making it more naturally attuned to the high-end visitor. A shift towards the VIP market was therefore a natural step.When it opened its doors in 2017, Macau Roosevelt Hotel included VIP facilities run by junket operator David Group, with Tak Chun Group taking over nine months later. The arrival of Meg-Star International and Poker Time Club now erases the last trace of mass gaming in the casino.Friday’s opening ceremony was presided by Meg-Star CEO Ben Leong alongside brand ambassador Cheung Chi Lam of Meg-Star Group and Michael Zhao, Director of Swiss Time Group.last_img read more

GoAir considering IPO worth 150 million

first_imgGo Airlines Ltd (GoAir), India’s fifth-biggest carrier by passengers travelled, is considering an initial public offering (IPO) and has begun talks to appoint bankers, three sources directly involved in the process said.GoAir, part of the Wadia Group whose flagship companies include Bombay Dyeing and biscuit maker Britannia Industries, could look to raise as much as $150 million in the IPO, said the sources.The bankers made presentations to the company earlier this week, the people said, adding that it was early to say whether the company would sell new shares or existing shareholders will reduce their stakes in the planned public offering.A spokesman for GoAir, which has a fleet of 19 Airbus A-320 planes and had an 8.4% domestic market share last quarter. The company would not comment on what he called ‘market speculation’, the spokesperson said.GoAir is estimated by consultant CAPA to have made a profit of $14 million-$15 million in the year to March, which would make it the second most profitable Indian airline after market leader IndiGo.IndiGo is selling shares in an IPO to raise as much as $464 million.last_img read more

Law enforcement to determine accuracy of news

first_imgLaw enforcement to step up control of mediaLaw minister Anisul Huq and telecommunications minister Mustafa Jabbar on 19 April said, the Digital Security Act was not made to target the media. It would not affect freedom of expression or freedom of press either. The ministers said this at a meeting with cabinet members at the time.Legal experts, however, say if the bill is passed, the government law enforcement agencies like RAB, police, BGB and Ansar will eventually emerge as the ultimate ‘editors’ or ‘super editors’.“Which news content is right and which one is harmful- all of this will depend on their own logic and whims,” they said.According to the experts, the law enforcers will be able to use this act to request BTRC to block any digital media at any time.Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (BTRC) is an autonomous organisation. To be a member of BTRC, one has to have the criteria of a judge of the Supreme Court. Still, if they receive any ‘request’ from RAB, police or any other law enforcement agencies, they will ‘immediately’ respond.The law enforcement agencies were not even given such power in the IT Act of 2006. Law enforcers had to seek court permission to seize computers used to commit any alleged crime under that act.Under sub-section- 1 of section-8 in the current proposed act, it is possible to remove any news content published in digital media if it seems to be a threat to digital security.Sumon Ahmed, a member of the advisory committee of the United Nations Internet Governance Forum, told Prothom Alo, BTRC can block any newspaper’s webpage containing standard Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (http), if they cannot remove contents of the page. BTRC, however, will not be able to remove or block the webpage where ‘s’ (secured) is added to the http.Apart from that, BTRC can block the newspapers’ webpage only in Bangladesh.Law enforcers to be more powerfulUnder section-43 of the act, if a police officer suspects any crime or evidence, he can register the incident in his office and conduct a search into any media office, seize computers, search and arrest anybody, without arrest warrant.In sub-section-2 of section-8, the law enforcement agencies can request BTRC to remove news contents that violate the country’s solidarity, affect economic activities, defence and security, religious values or public order and spread communal hatred among people.In sub-section 3, it is said that the contents will be removed or blocked by BTRC immediately upon receiving such request.Acknowledging these concerns, media experts said such rules would certainly violate the freedom of expression and instigate a hostile reaction towards media persons.Shahdeen Malik, a Supreme Court lawyer told Prothom Alo, “It seems we are going back to the Special Powers Act of 1974.”Another lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan thinks the definition of law enforcement agencies should be clarified, as the army also falls under the definition of law enforcement agencies.Under the act, a digital security agency is said to be created under a director general. An emergency response team will be formed for constant monitoring. Their work will be determined by a policy.So this bill is not the final word. There is scope to make the rules even more difficult.Digital act includes 8 ‘crimes’ from 1974 actThe eight definitions of the relevant 1974 act interpreted by justice Muhammad Habibur Rahman and Anisuzzaman in ‘Ain Shabdokosh’ (dictionary of legal terms), bears resemblance to the the law related to blocking websites.Also, the current digital act contains almost all the eight crimes mentioned in the 1974 act. The similarities in the digital act include, three in section 8 (defence, security, ethnic hatred), one in section 25 (intimidation), two in section 27 (foreign states and public order), and two in section 31 (related to security and community).Muhammad Habibur Rahman and Anisuzzaman recorded in eight points the reasons why newspapers were confiscated. This indicates that the special power of the law enforcing agencies to block online newspapers given in digital act is akin to the confiscation of newspapers in the 1974 act.The eight points are: 1. Sovereignty or defence of Bangladesh; 2. Having friendly relations with foreign countries; 3. Threat to the country’s security or public security or public order; 4. Instigating hatred or hostility among different communities and classes; 5. Intervention or incitement in law enforcement; 6. Obstructing supply of essential goods; 7. Creating panic or anarchy in society; 8. Causing or intending to cause financial and social damage of the state. No safeguard for editorsIn some of the instances, the terms used to define punishable crimes for online publication are severer than those in the much debated sections annulled in 2006.Many legal experts are surprised at the free access given to the law enforcement that will enable indiscriminate abuse of the law. They observe, it will add to the spree of arrests, filing of cases and harassment.The editors and journalists have to depend on the police for their online publications. But in the 1973 printing presses and publications act under CrPC (Code of Criminal Procedure) section 108, safeguards were provided for editors, publishers and presses. The 108 section still has the provision.It says, any charges could be filed against the owner, editor, publisher or printer of any newspaper registered under the 1973 presses and publications act alleging instigation of sedition, hatred, fear, if the concerned government authorities or officials issue an order in this regard.Though safeguards remain in place for the press for the same crimes, they are not ensured for online publications.The digital security act vests the power to determine objectionable content, with the police and Ansar, BGB and RAB. Such free license for the law enforcement is unprecedented in the country. This development implies that BTRC will become paper tiger.Deviation from 1974 actIn the 1974 act there were remedies for banning or forfeiture of newspapers. The digital act does not address this. This act does not specify any authority to approach for or record any appeal. The span of time for a website to remain blocked is not specified either. There was no provision to confiscate any newspaper on grounds of hurting religious sentiment in the 1974 special powers act nor in section 99 of the 1991 CrPC enacted by the BNP government.In the much-debated Act 57, there was provision for action against crimes of hurting ‘religious sentiment’. But Awami League has made the matter ambiguous by defining ‘hurting religious values’ as a crime under which online media can be blocked.Now police, Ansar, coast guard, BGB and RAB will determine the degree of religious values being offended and will search, arrest without any warrant, and block online publications without any trial.Section 17 of 1974 said, the government will inform the publisher, editor as soon as possible of the confiscation and will issue written orders to submit the printed copies, stop distribution, and file the writer’s name. The act also says that the government must state reasonable grounds in the order and let the accused editor and journalist to present an answer in response to the order. The government must also mention that the accused has the right to self defence.The government has not expressed any intention of adding such provisions in the new digital act. The law minister Anisul Huq and the information technology minister Mustafa Jabbar have said they would take all the concerns of the editors’ council into consideration.The 1974 act stated that a police official, not below the rank of sub-inspector, with a warrant and with the magistrate’s approval, can search a newspaper office. Any search was forbidden after sunset and before sunrise. But the digital security act lacks such safeguards.Notably, in the abolished section 18 under the 1974 act there was provision for any report on security, friendly relations with foreign states, public order to be cleared for publication within 72 hours of submission to the government.There was even provision for appeal to be filed within seven days of a certain report being banned. Another provision stated that the appeal should be disposed after hearing by a district judge. In the proposed digital act, the stated crimes are the same as in the 1974 act, but with no scope for seeking remedy. *This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Farjana Liakat and Nusrat Nowrin.last_img read more

Who Is The Black Panther

first_img “Deep in the heart of Africa is Wakanda, a technologically advanced civilization of great power and mystery. Its warrior-king is T’Challa, the latest in a famed family line, and the great hero known worldwide as the Black Panther. Despite the futile defeats of the past, outsiders are once more assembling to invade Wakanda and plunder its riches. Leading this brutal assault is Klaw, a deadly assassin with the blood of T-Challa’s murdered father on his hands. Klaw brings with him a powerful army of super-powered mercenaries, all hell-bent on raining death and destruction on the pristine land. Even with Wakanda’s might and his own superhuman skills, can the Black Panther prevail against such a massive invading force?”BLACK PANTHER: WHO IS THE BLACK PANTHER?(W): Reginald Hudlin (P): John Romita Jr. (I): Klaus Janson (C): Dean White (L): Chris EliopoulosI must admit. I’ve never read anything Black Panther until recently. I started with the latest run from Ta-Nehishi Coates, but I wanted to go back. I wanted to dive deeper into this world of advanced technology. The beautiful and mysterious Wakanda and the African magic that exists within this fictional world. With the upcoming release of Black Panther, starring Chadwick Boseman and directed by Ryan Coogler, coming on February 16, 2018, it only made the hype for reading Black Panther more real.The story of Black Panther is known far and wide, but creators have told the story in very different ways. The crux of it all is that Black Panther isn’t only a man, but a legacy. The Black Panther, the ruler of Wakanda and a spiritually based warrior, is a hereditary title, passed to whoever proves worthy of holding it. Currently, the title belongs to T’Challa, King of Wakanda and son of the late T’Chaka. Wakanda is an African country that is highly more advanced than any other part of the world. Many have tried to conquer but to no avail. Wakanda carries “technological superiority” more infinite than any part of the nation as well. If you come for Wakanda or the Black Panther, you better tread lightly.via Marvel ComicsBlack Panther: Who Is The Black Panther, written by Reginald Hudlin, pencils by John Romita Jr with inks by Klaus Janson, Dean White on colors and lettering by Chris Eliopoulos, reigned from 2005 to 2008. Reginald Hudlin brings a very focused and timeless feel to this story. He doesn’t focus on the enhanced abilities of how T’Challa became Black Panther.He sets his sites on T’Challa’s already laid skills as he fights his uncle for the title. Hudlin writes the legacy and lineage of the hero but writes it in a way that T’Challa truly proves himself and the resilience of the country itself. Reginald writes this narrative like a historian, almost like a Wakandian point of view. I feel like every person who takes hold of the Black Panther title becomes a transcriber. It’s engaging, conscious and plants its feet in the ground and as you turn the pages, you just watch it grow.Something I loved about Hudlin’s writing is the depiction of “Wakanda vs. The Rest of the World.” The knowledge that people have taken things away from Africa, including people and places, but Wakanda is like “We will protect ours” is a powerful statement to make.Wakanda can do bad all by itself. They have such high strength of who they are as a country and community. Not bothered by anything on the outside because they work to strengthen and strive for themselves. They do not bow to anyone, especially people who seek to invade what they have built. Hudlin not only shows that with the power of the Wakandans, but the counters that with all the military power, inabilities and greed of man. Hudlin creates a dialogue that is massive brilliant and essential.John Romita Jr’s pencils and inks by Klaus Janson are suited for each other. They work organically together, bringing out the landscape, tech, destruction, and emotion throughout the panels. Romita’s pencils are refined. They’re polished and elegant in their execution, but the best thing he does with his pencils is facial expressions. Each character has their own distinguished personality, and with Janson’s inks, they enhance tenfold.via Marvel ComicsDean White’s Wakanda colors feel like home. They complimenting the landscape and characters that we come to know and adore. You almost see the difference between his colors when you’re within the frosty and cold nature of the USA then the warm and robust feel of Africa. Chris Eliopoulos’ letters complete this comic with sounds that you’re almost sure you can hear as you read. Eliopoulos does an outstanding job with placement, especially for the Klaw and Black Panther. They’re opposites, militant and cunning in their own ways, so when they speak, it’s important to listen. Eliopoulos’ letters with Romita’s facial expressions, give the panels a definite pop that you know is so authentic.If you want to get into Black Panther, for new or old fans, you want to pick up this particular series to get you started. You’ll not only get an introduction to the history of Black Panther but some background of a notorious villain Klaw (Ulysses Klaus, whose be played by Andy Serkis in the film). Black Panther: Who Is The Black Panther lets you know who he is and where he came from and how far he’ll go to protect his homeland.

Play These Nintendo Switch Games Before Pokemon Sword and Shield

first_img Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Controller Patent Teases SNES Games on Switch Although there’s no standout heavy hitter like Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we’re still pretty stoked about the rest of 2019 when it comes to Nintendo Switch games. The console/handheld hybrid has a varied lineup to look forward to, with Nintendo themselves publishing like half a dozen games in the summer months alone. And of course Pokemon Sword and Shield are looming over the horizon beckoning us to catch them all this holiday.But in the meantime, here are some cooler, smaller Switch games to play right now, on the original Switch or the new Nintendo Switch Lite.Pillars of EternityDeveloper Obsidian’s understanding of Western role-playing games is so complete they can make everything from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic sequels to Fallout spin-offs to tactical RPGs based on South Park. And with their Kickstarter success Pillars of Eternity they go back to the roots of the genre. This is a very old-school game in all aspects. The lore is well-written with sympathetic characters but full of dense fantasy concepts and history you’ll either get totally into to or completely bounce off of. And the throwback isometric gameplay recalls D&D PC classics like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale. Even weird texts bugs look like something you’d see on a PC.But the Nintendo Switch is a new console, not an old computer. Even when you fast forward, exploring the world moves at a measured and engrossing pace that works well on the go with a screen big enough to hold all the information. The various radial menus are also a fine enough control compromise for all the fiddling you’ll have to do. The combat, with its mix of semi real-time action and tactical pausing, is never exactly smooth with this system. But chalk that up once again to the appreciated but overwhelming old genre this game faithfully emulates.DC Universe OnlineTake out the MMO component and DC Universe Online almost feels like DC’s answer to the recent Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. It’s a colorful, chaotic, somewhat dumb comic book romp through the world of DC superheroes, only now you’re part of a whole community along from the ride. And there’s just something about watching a janky online war between caped villains and cops in neon Hell Gotham City that just feels so appropriate.But you can’t actually take out the MMO component. DC Universe Online gives you a fair amount of legacy content to play for free, but to get up to date you’ll need to start paying and keep paying. And while you’ll be interacting with DC characters nonstop in various missions, you’ll only play as your single new hero with a handful of abilities and costumes choices that can only at best become bootleg versions of real DC characters. I saw a pretty good Deadpool walking around, too.Chroma SquadLegal action eventually forced the developers of Chroma Squad to explicitly say they were inspired by Power Rangers. But just one look at these guys gives the game away. What’s more charming though is that this game cares more Power Rangers as a real-world TV show rather than whatever happens in the lore. And the gameplay reflects this offbeat take on the material.Players control their own indie studio producing a very pixelated Power Rangers-esque TV show. Filming takes the form of little turn-based tactics battles. They’re straightforward and get repetitive but gain depth from nice touches like morphing into your costumes, choosing to help teammates with your turn, and getting bonuses when the director asks all five of you to gang up on the boss monster at once. Outside of battles you lightly manage the studio by buying new gear for actors, setting aside budget to increase audience engagement, answering bizarre email. It’s a super sentai sim.Friday the 13th: The GameFrom Resident Evil to PUBG, horror is huge in gaming. So it’s weird we don’t see more games based directly on famous horror movies. Why haven’t the Mortal Kombat developers gone all in on a slasher fighting game instead of just DLC? Afters its original troubled release, Friday the 13th: The Game had us scared the slasher game had no future. Darkness can only cover up so many flaws. But now the Switch version (available as a physical release as well) benefits from later updates and is scary in a good way.Friday the 13th just does such a clever job turning the mechanics of the film genre into satisfying gameplay mechanics. It’s an asymmetrical multiplayer game where a group of counselors try to escape one Jason Voorhees as he hunts them down. The counselors are weaker but more numerous and more nimble. Jason is unwieldy but has a sick set of powers like teleporting and silently stalking and sensing fear and hearing his mom’s voice. And even if you don’t want to kill or be killed online, you can at least play as Jason offline in little crafted vignettes that give you a taste of the game’s surprisingly robust progression.Dragon Quest Builders 2Like the original, Dragon Quest Builders 2 adds some much appreciated polish, JRPG structure, and adorable Akira Toriyama art to the open-ended building genre. The sequel just expands the formula with bigger worlds made up of interconnected islands. It’s got a fun nautical Wind Waker vibe, even while your character remarks on dead bodies washing up on shore. The islands and their objectives are pretty distinct, too. Live out some Harvest Moon farming fantasies before sailing off to a prison colony or even alternate worlds dreamt up by other players, this time with a friend to help with building or combat or both. But while I do like the game’s strong guiding hand, the trade-off is you lose some of the sense of freedom you find in Minecraft.Blazing ChromeThe Switch already has a collection of classic Contra games, and it’s getting the iffy looking new 3D Contra Rogue Corps later this year. But the best new Contra experience you’ll play on the system is Blazing Chrome. From its chunky weapons, steep challenge, hardcore 80s energy, and beautiful 16-bit aesthetic it’s basically a love letter to Contra III: The Alien Wars. So it’s a love letter to me, too. Just don’t go in expecting anything much more than a blast from the past.Dream DaddyWhile a queer dad dating simulator could’ve easily been just a cheap meme, Dream Daddy gets to have its irony cake and eat it too just on the strength of its sincerely heartfelt writing. The frisky fathers have all have fun and unique personalities befitting their iconic artwork. But in-between all the flirting the game never forgets that you are a parent and makes caring for your child the number one priority. Outside of some clever minigame metaphors (comparing daughters like battling Pokemon) you need to be okay with the fact that the gameplay in this genre largely consists of reading. And while your personal Dream Daddy is ultimately your choice, I wish you had more meaningful choices to make during the dates themselves.Red Faction: Guerilla Re-Mars-teredCan an otherwise fine open-world rise to greatness thanks to a single mechanic? Red Faction: Guerilla will have you asking that question. On paper, the missions are fairly generic and repetitive. But it’s hard to notice because they mostly revolve around the unbelievably cool destruction mechanic. Basically every structure can be demolished with some strategic explosives or whacks from your sledgehammer. It’s very tactile and satisfying, especially paired with the antifa storyline that has you liberating Mars from tyrants by literally tearing their houses down. The working-class Mars colony world is also pretty well-realized in a Total Recall kind of way.SolSeraphAce Team are the Chilean weirdos behind Zeno Clash, so them making a spiritual successor to ActRaiser seemed totally random and therefore completely appropriate. It makes even more sense too once you realize that ActRaiser’s split between action and strategy is basically what the team was already getting at in Rock of Ages. In SolSeraph players become god to both fight monsters directly in short sidescrolling bits and help their followers flourish in real-time strategy tower defense bits. It can be a lot to handle. The action sections give you plenty of abilities that feel good but can’t always overcome enemies that feel a bit cheap. Meanwhile, the strategy sections give you little time to rest as monster waves come fast and furious while you manage resources, speed development along with god powers, build defenses, and work toward your ultimate goal of dispelling the darkness at the end of each area. It’s very stressful and not that rewarding. Something like Castlestorm integrates its hero and strategy elements a little more elegantly. But being a god is also probably stressful and not rewarding.Lethal League BlazeLethal League Blaze is the best game since Kung Foot in Rayman Legends to blur the lines between arcade sports game and straight-up fighting game. Instead of hitting each other directly, players bounce a ball around a tight arena. After you hit the ball, it will hurt your opponent on contact. But if they hit it back, you’re now vulnerable. Hit the ball in different directions, grab it, or bunt to set up proper positioning. And the wildest riskiest plays have you turning your opponent’s momentum against them, knocking back a fast ball to kill them with one hit. It’s all presented with a super stylish punk art style like Jet Set Radio meets Windjammers.Slay The SpireA deckbuilding roguelike sounds like something I wouldn’t want to touch with a ten-foot pole but Slay the Spire is one of the best games I’ve played all year. It has me wondering if solitaire was a roguelike this whole time. Opportunities for creative strategic depth from the different cards you collect feel almost limitless. The infinite potential encounters against monsters let you play out all those possibilities. With the right hand you can unleash ridiculous combo attacks or perfectly shield yourself from whatever a boss can throw at you. You can upgrade cards and augment your character with bonus runes. But having to ditch your deck each run is a good bulwark against the dumb hoarding aspect of other card games. And like the similarly fantastic Into the Breach, a single early run is still long, varied, and satisfying enough to not feel like a complete roguelike waste of time.Note: Slay the Spire is published by Humble Bundle, which is part of the same company that owns Friend PedroMy Friend Pedro has you slaughtering hundreds of goons with the help of your talking banana friend. Sure! And to make that slaughtering look as cool as possible, the game gives you plenty of guns to play with and various tricks for stringing together stylish combos. Split your aim when duel-wielding. Slow down time. Hop off walls. Ricochet bullets to snipe foes from tricky angles. It’s all very slick when it works. But when it doesn’t work there’s a kind of weird mushiness to the mechanics, like the game is too physics-dependent to be as crisp as it wants to be. And with a few exceptions, the industrial levels are disappointingly bland for a game trying to be so crazy.Verlet SwingAs someone who wrote the book on vaporwave for this website, Hell yes I was excited for Verlet Swing and its aesthetic. Swinging around pink and turquoise 90s digital dreamscapes littered with marble busts feels like swinging into a Floral Shoppe album cover, all set to some incredibly chill tunes. But the gameplay doesn’t quite have the same appropriately laid-back mood. Even in the short levels, swinging around in first-person like a cross-between Mirror’s Edge and Bionic Commando feels awkward as I’m never totally sure where my body is. And even the tiniest collision results in a game over. It’s frustrating, the one thing vaporwave should never be.Slender: The ArrivalSlender: The Arrival has more legitimately cool spooky atmosphere and lore than this dumb meme deserves, frankly. The found footage look and creepy audio design make you forget that you’re running away from 4chan Boogeyman. But you can see the same production value in a lot of those streaming-focused first-person jump scare horror games. Slender starts off pretty strong, almost feeling like a horror version of Firewatch. But eventually the repetitive gameplay reminds you this is an expanded version of a demo. It doesn’t have the creativity of something like the fake Christmas Furbies in Tattletail or playing as a literal baby in Among the Sleep.A Duel Hand Disaster: TrackherA Duel Hand Disaster: Trackher’s title is just the start of the confusion. I enjoy the unique shoot ‘em up premise. On one half of the screen you control a ship with infinite health but limited resources shooting enemies for points. On the other half you control a vulnerable ship avoiding enemies to collect resources. And clever design tricks keep your brain from splitting to much, like locking the offensive ship on one axis and making you wait to gather material. It creates natural rhythms for safely switching views. But the specifics of how the game actually works, including its risk/reward scoring system that only counts if you stay alive, aren’t clearly conveyed leading to unnecessary confusion in a game that’s already hard to wrap your brain around.We. The RevolutionRead our full review for more on this dense simulation of the French Revolution legal system, but suffice it to say being able to send rich jerks to the guillotine in a video game feels pretty good these days. Like a dream Phoenix Wright game, We. The Revolution focuses just on the courtroom stuff. You can pour through documents and testimonies to make informed decisions. Or be as sloppy and passionate as a real revolutionary judge soaking up the restless energy of the people. The short cases are also perfect for portable play. But if you don’t care about the time period it can feel a bit like homework.Graveyard KeeperGraveyard Keeper isn’t shy about its inspiration. It’s Stardew Valley but in a cemetery. Instead of farming crops, you tend to dead bodies. But the idyllic, relaxed pacing and vibe remain. And that morbid combo of tones is pretty fun in an Addams Family kind of way. Along with your regular duties of removing flesh and preparing burial sites, you can become a preacher and talk to an anti-capitalist donkey. It’s addictive, but not always in a healthy way. The tech trees for the different crafting skills, from chopping firewood to melting iron ore into nails, are about twice as long as they need to be. It always feels like there are dozens of arbitrary steps to go through to build the thing you really want. At least the dead get to rest.Realm RoyaleIt’s a shame Realm Royale won’t reach the same popularity of PUBG or Fortnite or Apex Legends because this Paladins spin-off addresses basically all of my issues with those other bigger battle royale games. There’s a tutorial and the gunfeel isn’t overly realistic. There’s a colorful fantasy aesthetic but no stupid building. You can gain different wacky character abilities on the battlefield but aren’t locked into any of them and can play solo. And before you die you can run away as a chicken so every match doesn’t end with an awkward confusing skirmish where you don’t even know what happened and don’t learn anything. It’s still a battle royale game which will never be my favorite genre, and I didn’t get deeper into mechanics like breaking down weapons for currency to craft better ones, but Realm Royale is just streamlined in a way I hope more players appreciate.Bloodstained: Ritual of the NightNot to be a Castlevania elitist, but Koji Igarashi’s spiritual successor to the dead Konami franchise is closer to his last DS game, Order of Ecclesia, than the more famous and influential Symphony of the Night. Thank god Dracula is in the public domain. But whatever, I agree with our full review that Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is bloody great. The subtle difference between Metroid and Castlevania is that Castlevania uses nonlinearity to bolster its RPG loot nature along with clever twisty level progression. It’s as compelling here as it has ever been. We just hope the Switch version irons out its host of technical issues.CatanLike many others, Catan was my gateway drug into more serious tabletop gaming. It’s accessible but has more fun strategic depth than, say, Candy Land. And while translating a complex physical game into the digital space is always tricky, this Switch conversion is pretty good! Once I got the controls I easily fell back in the groove. There’s no local multiplayer with one system since players can’t hide cards on the TV, but there is online play. And the single-player campaign offers a variety of different boards with different potential economies. Playing with real people in person will always be better (why doesn’t the A.I. trade with me?) but this is a suitable portable alternative. Stay on targetlast_img read more

React Native 057 coming soon with new iOS WebViews

first_imgWebView is used to display web content in your iOS applications.Yesterday, React Native announced a new native iOS backend to the WebView component that uses WKWebView. This WebView component will be available in the upcoming React Native 0.57 release. Apple has discouraged the use of UIWebViews for a long time. This is due to its being formally deprecated in the upcoming months. It is advised that you use the WKWebView class instead of using UIWebView for the apps that run in iOS 8 and above. You can use the useWebKit property to opt into this implementation: What problems does WKWebView solve? Earlier, to embed web content in our applications we had two options, UIWebView and WKWebView. UIWebView is the original WebView introduced in 2.0. It is known to have some pitfalls and problems. The main drawback is that it has no legitimate way to facilitate communication between the JavaScript running in the WebView and React Native. The newly introduced WKWebView aims to solve this problem. Other benefits of WKWebView over UIWebView include faster JavaScript execution and a multi-process architecture. What to consider when switching to WKWebView? You must avoid using the following properties, for the time being: Using automaticallyAdjustContentInsets and contentInsets may result in inconsistent behavior. When we add contentInsets to UIWebView, the viewport size changes (gets smaller, if the content insets are positive). In case of WKWebView, the viewport size remain unchanged. If you use the backgroundColor property there is a chance that WKWebView may render transparent backgrounds differently from UIWebView and can also flicker into view. Per React Native community, WKWebView doesn’t support the scalesPageToFit property. Hence, they couldn’t implement this on the WebView React Native component. To know more about the new WebViews, check out their announcement on React Native’s official website and their GitHub repository.

TAT showcased its 2015 Discover Thainess campaign in Sydney

first_imgTourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Australia, together with the Royal Thai Consulate in Sydney, Thai Airways International Australia and the Thai community in Sydney proudly presented the unique and charming Thai culture as part of the recent 2015 Sydney Chinese New Year’s Twilight Parade.This is the first year that the City of Sydney has invited other Asian communities to participate in its Chinese New Year Celebration. There were approximately 3,000 performers in the parade, including almost 100 Thai performers and TAT’s special guest, the 2014 Miss Thailand, who has flown all the way from Thailand just for this special event.The Thai float was decorated in the “Songkran” (Thai New Year) theme with Miss Thailand as the Songkran maiden. This is in line with TAT’s “2015 Discover Thainess” campaign which aims at offering tourists the chance to experience the distinct nature and characteristics of the Thai people as well as the nation’s cultural assets, which can be characterised in seven unique aspects: Thai food, Thai arts, Thai way of life, Thai wellness, Thai festivities, Thai wisdom and Thai fun. The word “Thainess” is a way to describe Thailand’s unique cultural treasures and the Thai way of happiness.Despite its unstable political situation, last year Thailand welcomed almost 25 million foreign tourists, including 835,517 from Australia. In January 2015, the country has already welcomed 2.65 million foreign tourists. (Source: Ministry of Tourism and Sports Thailand) TAT is confident that the number of tourists in 2015 will be no less than last year.According to Mrs. Rujiras Chatchalermkit, Director of Tourism Authority of Thailand Australia, Thailand has always been among the top five overseas destinations for Australians.The next and biggest Thai event in Australia will be the annual “Thailand Grand Festival” which will be held on March 14th – 15th at Tumbalong Park in Sydney.

first_img FILE – In this Aug. 15, 2018 file photo, actress-producer Jessica Biel attends a USA Network’s “The Sinner” screening and conversation at 92Y in New York. Biel is nominated for an Emmy for best lead actress in a limited series for her role on the show. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File) ‘The Sinner’ was cathartic for Emmy nominee Jessica Biel by Brooke Lefferts, The Associated Press Posted Aug 20, 2018 12:13 pm PDT Last Updated Aug 20, 2018 at 1:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – As a kid, like a lot of us, Jessica Biel practiced giving a speech in front of a mirror for that fairytale moment when she won a top award.But unlike most of us, Biel’s moment has a chance to come true — she’s nominated for an Emmy Award for best lead actress in a limited series for her role in “The Sinner,” the USA Network series that she stars in — and helped bring about as its executive producer. And now that the moment is closer — the Emmy Awards will be presented next month — she’s worried that she might get a little tongue-tied.“I’ve recently had a thought of like ‘do I need to prepare something?’… I’m a really bad public speaker when I have to be me, I’m way more nervous about it. So I’m not quite sure what to do with that yet. I’m still trying to figure out, you know, do you have a paper just in case? But then what if you lose? Now you have this paper and it’s like embarrassing,” she said, laughing. “I haven’t quite put together what my path is yet.”Her acting path has taken her far. She started out as a teen in the TV series “7th Heaven” and has starred in numerous TV and film roles since then. But her biggest role has been as a mom to son Silas with husband Justin Timberlake; she’s been in Europe this summer with the family, accompanying Timberlake on tour.In a recent interview, Biel talked about the satisfaction of bringing “The Sinner” to the small screen, its dark nature, and escaping with her husband and 3-year-old son.Associated Press: This was your project, you’re the show’s executive producer, so was it extra-sweet?Biel: I think when you put so much heart and blood, sweat and tears, and you’re there at the beginning and you know you have no idea if this thing’s going to even work, and then it works and it really works. And then not only do you have a great audience response, but your community really loves it and specifically your performance, it’s awesome.AP: The show is dark. How did you get to those places and sustain it?Biel: It was definitely the most challenging creative experience — emotional experience — I’ve had at work ever because it was relentless. … Honestly it’s hard to describe in words how you get into a place like that. But what I know for sure is that I just felt great compassion for this woman, even though she did something so horrific. I somehow connected with her and related to her — I think probably one element was because she was a mom and the idea of having a small kid and never seeing that kid again because you’re in prison for the rest of your life. … I mean I could just get emotional thinking about that. … And honestly, I think I was exorcising a lot of my own demons. … My own baggage and history and trauma that I’ve had in my past. Obviously I … don’t have an experience like this woman has had, but I have my own stuff. And I think it was an amazing place to just kind of work it and get catharsis through it and just splay out like all of my guts on the table every day in a safe environment. It’s kind of an amazing part of the job that I do.AP: How did you compartmentalize it and go home to your son?Biel: I thought it was going to be really hard, and it was like my sanctuary, you know? At the end of the day, I could throw it all off on the floor and leave it at work and go home to something very simple. You know what it’s like when you have a 2- or 3-year-old: food, play, water, change the diaper, take a nap (laughs). Things need to be done. There’s no complicated mind games, there’s no complicated emotions. … And there was something freeing about that.AP: How has your summer been touring with your family?Biel: I really love (to travel) and I just feel grateful that we’re having this experience. It’s definitely not without its challenges having a small kid, moving him around a lot. But it’s amazing. It’s such a great education for him and for me — out of our comfort zone hearing new languages, trying foods. It’s fun to do it as a family even though, you know, my husband’s working a lot. That is what it is. I’ve probably seen the show at least 30 times. Never gets old. It doesn’t. He’s the best. Truly. And I mean that! I’m biased, of course. But I think also if I saw the show completely not knowing him I think it’s the best show ever.last_img read more

who provided the inspiration for Madrid’s first La Liga and Champions League double since 1958 After taking the lead through Ronaldo Madrid were rocked back on their heels by Mario Mandzukic’s stunning overhead kick equaliser before the interval However Zidane turned the tide in the space of a few words when he faced his uncertain players in the dressing room Imploring his stars to believe in themselves as much as he did in them Zidane struck the right tone and eased their fears that the trophy may slip from their grasp Ronaldo admitted it was in those moments that the match was won "Zidane gave us a very positive half-time team talk and told us he really believed in us" he said Reluctant hero With Zidane’s words ringing in their ears Madrid were revitalised in the second half scoring three times to seal the famous ‘cup with the big ears’ As he stood on the pitch amid the confetti and fireworks at full-time a bashful smile across his face Zidane could have been forgiven for letting his mind drift back to his childhood Born among Marseille’s toughest streets Zidane said this week: "If you said I was going to live all of this when I was a child quite frankly I would never have believed but here I am living it" Throughout an incredible playing career that brought him fame and fortune Zidane remained a reluctant hero even when he became the idol of a nation by starring in France’s 1998 World Cup triumph But it was that calm demeanour that appealed to Madrid chief Florentino Perez when he made the surprise decision to appoint Zidane as boss in January 2016 With only brief spells as Madrid’s assistant coach and ‘B’ team boss on his CV critics wondered how he would cope with a squad of fragile egos at a club rife with political power struggles Those doubters underestimated Zidane’s inner resolve and the huge respect he was held in by Madrid’s players Here was a manager who could match them medal for medal and they quickly responded to his leadership A Champions League final victory over Atletico Madrid last season might have been seen in some quarters as beginner’s luck But Zidane had all the right answers this season Aware that Ronaldo had been below his best in two Champions League finals after feeling overworked earlier in those campaigns he rested the forward nine times this season and was rewarded with 16 goals in his last 10 appearances Even the difficult decision of whether to recall Wales forward Gareth Bale for the final in his hometown was no problem for Zidane who kept faith with Isco and watched his playmaker pull the strings

Delhi: Indian boxing sensation Vijender Singh on Tuesdaysaid he wasdoing high intensity training ahead of his much-awaited title fight at home and hopes to "knockout" Australian Kerry Hope early for the WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight Championship crown in New Delhi on 16 July Vijender Singh ready for Kerry Hope test Getty images Undefeated in his six fights so far Vijender is currently training hard in Manchester under globally acclaimed trainer Lee Beard "With less than three weeks to go for my maiden title fight am really excited to compete in front of my home crowd Competing in front of my own people will be a very big moment for me and I don’t want to lose this chance" the 30-year-old who will face Kerry at Thyagaraj Sports Complex in Delhi said "I have started high intensity training two weeks ago to compete in the first 10 rounder fight for the Asia Pacific title and working hard to win this I have seen videos of Kerry he is a good opponent but I am training really hard to be ready for what my opponent has" His training regime includes — shadow boxing in front of a mirror which helps to perfect technique and practice both offensive and defensive exercises sparring between 12 rounds which enhances all facets of boxing skills and techniques Floor Work that builds up strength Pad Work which increases speed coordination and timing His rival Kerry Hope a former European champion has openly challenged Vijender before this title fight terming the Indian as an amateur and not in his league Vijender said: "If Kerry comes forward and throws shots then anyone who has done that in the past has got knocked out so if he leaves himself open my natural strength will play a big part Every fight I go into I believe I will win Doubt is the enemy I believe he’s not as strong as me and he’s not training like I’m training "I have read his statement but don’t want to react on this All I can say is that I am preparing for 16 July and my punches will reply to overconfident Kerry Hope I am confident of winning this game and making my countrymen proud" Vijender said he wants to win this championship title not only for himself but also for his fans "The audience will be sitting there and rooting for me I want to play for them I love the feeling of your own people cheering for you it gives you a different kind of a boost and motivates you to keep hitting those punches" Although Kerry is more experienced than Vijender with an impressive record of 23 wins from 30 fights but the Indian is ready to give him a tough time in the ring "I don’t think fighting Kerry is a problem sure he might be more experienced but it all depends on the punches and the strength you show in the ring at the time of the fight The title is mine and I will make sure that everyone is proud of that moment" Vijender said For the second match in succession the Gujarat Lions have been embarrassed They have taken just one wicket across two matches and they have lost both games with a combined total of 58 balls to spare That is two balls short of 10 overs that have been left unbowled by the Lions in just two games The first match was a jarring result as they failed to defend 184 against the Kolkata Knight Riders This game was less of a shock but it was no less humiliating A nine-wicket loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad was a fair reflection of the performances of these two sides after the Lions top order failed to deliver Last season the Lions’s success was built on consistent run getting from Suresh Raina Aaron Finch and Brendon McCullum In theory their top-order has been bolstered by the arrival of England’s Jason Roy On Sunday afternoon of those four batsmen only Roy got into double figures making 31 from 21 before he was caught on the pull off Bhuvneshwar Kumar File photo of the Gujarat Lions Sportzpics From there it was all about the Afghan wunderkind – Rashid Khan Still just 18-years-old he looks and plays like a veteran spinner He ripped through the Lions top order with amazing figures of 3-19 from his four overs All of those dismissals came when the batsmen misread him McCullum and Finch played the googly thinking it was a legspinner Raina played the legspinner thinking it was a googly These are three of the best T20 batsmen in the world and a teenager from a country that isn’t allowed to play cricket at the highest level made them look like mugs The real test for Rashid will come when teams have watched and re-watched the footage of him bowling in these first two matches and batsmen start to pick him but that is of no comfort to the Lions who have been humbled by a kid from an Associate nation In the last game having Dwayne Smith batting at six was a waste In this game it was a godsend as the Lions found themselves four wickets down in the ninth over with just 57 runs on the board From there it was always about damage limitation and battling to get something that could be defended Even then it was a stretch and they would need Smith to bat all 20 overs Unfortunately for them Smith skied a catch to long off at the start of the death overs and once again the innings lost all impetus Dinesh Karthik scored at a strike rate of less than 100 on a pitch where David Warner scored at almost 170 There needs to be a caveat to the criticism of Karthik who came to the crease with his side in trouble and had to rebuild but he too fell just at the point where acceleration was needed 135 for seven was never enough runs bearing in mind how bad the bowlers were in the first match it was going to be a massacre The bowling lineup was different from the first game with Tejas Baroka and Basil Thampi coming into the team but neither man was going to cause the likes of David Warner and Moises Henriques any real problems Sure enough both bowlers went at 10 an over as there was never any control exerted over the Sunrisers top order At least there was a wicket in this match something that was missing completely from the Lions’s first match This one came when Shikhar Dhawan looped a catch into the covers off a full toss from Praveen Kumar There were no other chances created as the Australian pair of Warner and Henriques put on 108 runs for the second wicket The Lions’s most economical bowler was Shivil Kaushik who conceded just 29 runs from his four overs of left-arm wrist spin In truth he was fortunate not to go for more runs as he routinely dropped the ball far too short The Sunrisers won with 27 balls to spare but they left runs out in the middle If they had felt the need to really push on they could have reached the victory target with even more alacrity The Lions need to do something and that should involve rethinking theirteam makeup Not having Dwayne Bravo or Ravindra Jadeja available to them was always going to cause them issues their bench strength was clearly a weakness before the tournament began But having all of your overseas players as top order batsmen with only Smith able to offer any sort of bowling puts a lot of pressure on the local bowlers none of whom have international pedigree Leaving out one of Roy or Finch and bringing in James Faulkner fixes some of those problems Not only can Faulkner offer some useful overs he has a proven record of success batting in the closing overs in the innings It seems that Jadeja will be back for the next match and that will be massive for this team with both the bat and the ball but right now the problems look bigger than just the return of one or even two players Written by Srinath Rao | Published: May 25 2013 12:56 am
