The three other newcomers include 19-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Reniece Boyce, 23-year-old allrounder Akeira Peters and 25-year-old opening batsman Felicia Walters.Chairman of the selection panel Courtney Browne said these four players caught the eye at the emerging women’s players camp held last year. “The team is composed of a mixture of youth and experience,” Browne said. “Performances in this year’s Women’s Regional Super50 Tournament along with the form of incumbent players over the last few international tours were taken into consideration.“The panel felt all four [new] players bring a specific skill-set to the team. It should also be noted that all four players are products of our last training camp for emerging women’s players held last year. We feel at this time that these players, although not as experienced, have shown improvement and can add value to our squad.”Allrounder Shanel Daley, who last played in November 2014, returned to the squad. Browne said of her selection: “Shanel’s ability as a player has never been in question. She however, had some injury issues over the last few years. Those issues are now under control and our medical personnel, as well as Oba Gulston, the physiotherapist for the women’s team, will continue to monitor and manage her.”Allrounder Shaquana Quintyne missed out with injury.The Women’s World Cup runs from June 24 to July 23. West Indies play their first match on June 26, against Australia in Taunton. They are one of eight teams in the tournament, alongside Australia, England, India, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. (ESPNCricinfo) read more

Game of the Year Sneak King

first_img Review: ‘Fantasy Strike’ Is A Fighting Game That Understands…Game of the Year: Jordan Minor’s Best Video Games of 2018 For too long the definition of “Game of the Year” has been unfairly narrow. How boring is it to see every website shower the same stale AAA games with praise at the end of each holiday season? So at Geek.com we’re doing what we can to put a stop to this in Game of the Year, a new column celebrating worthy alternative picks for the year’s greatest game regardless of genre, platform, year of release, or even quality. Here, any game can be Game of the Year!Enough fooling around with sex toys and chicken bands. It’s time to get to the Burger King content that truly matters. Sneak King is a stealth-action video game where you play as the Burger King King and surprise folks with Whoppers. It’s the game that the Game of the Year column was made for.As part of a deal with Microsoft, in 2006 Burger King and developer Blitz Games released three vaguely Burger King-themed games for the Xbox, and Xbox 360 customers could purchase alongside their burgers and fries for a limited time. They were nothing but glorified ads, and two of the games in the series, PocketBike Racer and Big Bumpin’, were just cheap and boring and normal vehicle games. Big Bumpin’ is at least fun to say.However, Sneak King was weird and wonderful enough to justify the entire initiative. The Burger King commercials that feature the King rely upon his inherent creepiness, his quiet, unchanging grin. Sneak King (sneaking, get it?) takes this idea and runs with it. This really is a stealth game like Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell, but instead of stalking people like a monster to murder them, you stalk them like a monster to give them fast food in a cul-de-sac or at a saw mill.That premise alone is hilarious enough to make Sneak King an intriguing curiosity, which is good because the premise is pretty much the only thing Sneak King has going for it. Financially these games did pretty well for both Burger King and the (now defunct) developers. They sold millions of copies. But the quality was about as low as you’d expect for shameless food tie-in game ads. Sneak King is probably pretty tough to find now, but unless you’re really into bizarre fast food collector’s items, don’t feel compelled to rush out and play it.Still, Sneak King has just enough of an insane creative spark to keep me from totally writing it off as garbage. Realizing that the Burger King King is the perfect star for a stealth game is frankly genius. It makes me legitimately want a better made version of this game running on something like the Fox engine powering Metal Gear Solid V. Or imagine an AAA remake of Sneak King that’s episodic like the new Hitman, each mission takes you to a different part of the world where Burger King happens to be. There’s a Popeyes expansion pack.Heck, other fast food chains should get in on the video game action, too. A lounge singing rhythm game starring Mac Tonight. A Tropico clone but with Colonel Sanders instead of fake Castro. It’s time we broke Taco Bell’s spicy stranglehold on gamer culture. Sneak King is the Game of the Year, but it’s just the start.Check back next week to read about the next Game of the Year! Stay on targetlast_img read more

Buy This Comic Beasts of Burden Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men 1

first_img “A heroic pack of canines known as the Wise Dogs set off on a mission to clean up a Pennsylvania corridor plagued by seemingly unrelated occult disturbances that include a fire salamander and a horde of mutant lurkers. A link is found among the various disturbances, leading our heroes to a mountain village inhabited by a survivalist witch-cult who have discovered the existence of a ”Blood Lure” attracting occult forces, creatures, and many more terrors to Burden Hill!”BEASTS OF BURDEN: WISE DOGS AND ELDRITCH MEN #1(W): Evan Dorkin (A): Benjamin Dewey (L): Nate Piekos of BlambotAre you reading to read a review about some good boys? Yes? Good! If there’s one thing we can’t deny is our love for our furry four-legged good boys and girls. They comfort us when we’re down, scratch us when they’re irritated and sleep at any given part of the day. They’re also likely to get into some stuff when we’re not looking.via Dark HorseIf you’re not familiar with the series Beast of Burden, here’s a quick spark and summary. Think of Beasts of Burden like the Rugrats. If they were adorable and noble dogs that dealt with supernatural forces throughout the town of Burden Hill and their owners didn’t know about it. Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites featured the new blood coming into the Wise Men. Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men #1 features the old souls fully honed in their craft.Evan Dorkin continues taking us into unknown animal territory within this new tale. Instead of the pack that we’ve come to know and love in Animal Rites, we’re introduced to some new players in the game. The Wise Dogs are a new breed, and these pups have their powers on lock. Some that’s more powerful and know what they’re doing. They’re the complete opposite of the novice pups in the first arc of the anthology story. They’re trying to find their footing in a brand new supernatural world they have yet to understand fully. These dogs know the ends and outs and see/understand the supernatural forces that come and the powers they possess.via Dark HorseIn that, it gives the story a different kind of energy. What’s great about this new story is that you don’t need the previous Beasts of Burden to enjoy it. There is a small part in there that connects to the previous story. However, with Wise Dogs, you’re anchored into a fresh new and satisfying narrative. One that’s slow and steady, a little old-fashioned, but doesn’t slow down one bit.Dorkin knows how to write some great dialogue. He has an ability to slow down the story so the reader can soak in all of the details, but never get lost in the shuffle. This helps so much in this story as Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men carries a lot of weight in the narrative because of the mystery surrounding it. It also excels in displaying more of Dorkin’s humor. This time in a more subtle and mature kind of way from the first anthology arc. That doesn’t make it any less than excellent and flows so well into what Dorkin does. He lets these characters be a different breed than the previous group in a more established way.via Dark HorseBenjamin Dewey takes the passenger seat with Dorkin within this arc to bring us some gorgeously illustrated panels that will make your jaw drop. Dewey soaks every panel in lush details that makes you awe-struck in what he accomplished in this first book. As you turn pages, you become even more excited for whats to come. He excels in features with specific different looks of the pups (and animals), while also nailing their facial expressions (again, for all the animals).Even within small panels and a lot going on, Dewey’s art creates a vast landscape of a world for these pups to adventure in. He nails the background, providing stunning woods. Dewey fills the panel with no detail left behind that sinks you deeper into the story, amping Dorkin’s narrative. Dewey also gives natural colors within his illustrations. He gives the woods lavish greens, browns, and oranges, but also muted purples, blues and more. He invites you into the story with his colors. They’re naturalistic but still provides a strange and curious supernatural aura within it as well.Nate Piekos’ lettering brings Dorkin’s script to life, giving it the voice that it needs while also displaying Dewey’s art wonderfully within the panels. You’d think with a comic about talking supernatural dogs it would be tricky. Yet Pieko’s places perfectly to give these characters a voice and let them each shine with his balloon placements. He also letters with mood attached matching with the art that’s so rare to see. In a later panel set of panels when we see our heroes from Animal Rites for a cameo. The entire page is laced with so much emotion and Pieko’s lettering completely helps bring that out.via Dark HorseIf you’re already a fan of Beasts of Burden, you’ll gladly be once again reunited with old and new friends doing new tricks. If you’re a new fan of the series, be prepared for some of the best good boys mixed up in the supernatural. Beasts of Burden is a standout comic that deserves so much more praise than given. It’s funny, moving and all around unexpectedly fun and spooky at once. Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men #1 is now available on ComiXology and in your local comic shop.8/22/2018 Releases – In addition to BEASTS OF BURDEN: WISE DOGS AND ELDRITCH MEN #1, here’s a list of other new titles that came out this week that you should be reading.West Coast Avengers #1 by Kelly Thompson (W), Stefano Caselli (A) Marvel ComicsExit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles by Mark Russell (W), Mike Freehan & Mark Morales (A) DC ComicsDeath of Love by Justin Jordan (W), Donal Delay, Omar Trucu Estevez (A) Image ComicsCold Spots #1 by Cullen Bunn (W), Mark Torres (A) Image ComicsMr. and Mrs. X #2 by Kelly Thompson (W), Oscar Bazaldua (A), Terry Dodson (CA)Lockjaw: Who’s A Good Boy? by Various (W), Various (A), Ed McGuinness (CA)Batman: Kings of Fear #1 by Scott Peterson (W), Kelley Jones (A), Michelle Madsen (C) DC ComicsCurse Words: Summer Swimsuit Special #1 by Charles Soule (W), Joe Quinone (A), Ryan Brown & Joe Quinones (CA) Image ComicsThe Punisher #1 by Matthew Rosenberg (W), Szymon Kudranski (A), Greg Smallwood (CA)Looking for the best variant covers this week, Wonder Woman #53 is a real beauty.

Thousands attend Pearl Harbor anniversary ceremony in Hawaii

first_imgPEARL HARBOR, Hawaii — Thousands of people gathered at Pearl Harbor on Wednesday for a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the attack that plunged the United States into World War II and left more than 2,300 service people dead.Under a clear blue sky, a few dozen attack survivors and others assembled on a pier overlooking the harbor. They bowed their heads and observed a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m. — the same moment Japanese planes began their assault on Dec. 7, 1941.The USS Halsey sounded its whistle to start the moment. F-22 fighter jets flying in formation overhead broke the silence afterward.Earlier, Laura Stoller watched as crowds jostled for autographs and photos with survivors. Stoller accompanied her adoptive grandfather and Pearl Harbor survivor Stan VanHoose of Beloit, Wisconsin, to the event and was happy to see the veterans getting attention.“All of these men who for so long didn’t get the recognition they deserve– they’re soaking it up. And it’s so fun to see,” Stoller said.VanHoose, 96, served on the USS Maryland.Fellow survivor Jim Downing of Colorado Springs, Colorado, said he comes back to Hawaii for the anniversary commemorations to be with his shipmates.“We get together and have a great time and compare our stories,” he said.Downing said surprise, fear, anger and pride overcame him as Japanese planes bombed Pearl Harbor.Then a newlywed sailor, he recalled a Japanese plane flying low and slow in his direction as he rushed to his battleship from his home after hearing explosions and learning of the attack on the radio.last_img read more

Migrant Caravan Reaches Town On Texas Border

first_img Share Eric Gay/APIn this Aug. 11, 2017, photo, a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol vehicle passes along a section of border levee wall in Hidalgo, Texas.A caravan of about 1,600 Central American migrants camped Tuesday in the Mexican border city of Piedras Negras, just west of Eagle Pass, Texas.The governor of the northern state of Coahuila described the migrants as “asylum seekers,” suggesting all had express intentions of surrendering to U.S. authorities.While previous caravans had traveled to the border city of Tijuana, where migrants have to join a waiting list to make asylum claims, the relatively open border around Eagle Pass is different. The border is marked mainly by the Rio Grande and lacks the long sections of high barriers found in Tijuana.Still, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security vowed that the “lawless caravan” would not be allowed in.“Approximately 2,000 aliens have arrived in northern Mexico as part of a ‘caravan’ seeking to cross the border into Texas. Illegal entry will not be tolerated and we stand ready to prevent it,” DHS Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen wrote in a statement Tuesday, adding: “DHS will take all steps to ensure the safety and security of law enforcement personnel on the front lines.”Images from local media showed U.S. agents with riot gear and shields standing on a bridge separating Eagle Pass and Piedras Negras. DHS said Border Patrol officers had already apprehended some migrants who crossed the border illegally overnight.Coahuila state Gov. Miguel Angel Riquelme said the Central American migrants arrived late Monday aboard 49 buses from the cities of Saltillo and Arteaga. Another smaller group headed toward the neighboring state of Nuevo Leon.An improvised shelter was set up for the migrants at an unused maquiladora factory, and local officials said the migrants had been given sleeping mats, blankets, food and wireless access. State child welfare officials reported that 46 unaccompanied youths aged between 15 and 17 were in the caravan.The area from Piedras Negras east to Nuevo Laredo has long been dominated by the now-fragmented Zetas cartel. The caravan was escorted by soldiers and police, and the state government said migrants wouldn’t be allowed to split off from the main group because “these types of caravans have been victims of organized crime groups that try to force the migrants to work for them.”“That is why we are being strict about security,” Coahuila state Interior Secretary Jose María Fraustro said.Local media reported that some migrants objected to guards and closed gates at the improvised shelter, saying they did not want to be locked in.Participants in caravans of mainly Honduran migrants last year mostly went to the border city of Tijuana in their bid to reach the United States. But Tijuana officials said their city was overwhelmed and unprepared to receive more migrants, after a mass rush by migrants trying to cross the border led to temporary closure of some crossings.Coahuila’s governor said authorities in his state are trying to avoid such scenarios. The state government said authorities “are trying to maintain an open dialogue with the migrants, making sure their needs are met, without affecting the daily life of Piedras Negras residents.”A second, larger caravan of several thousand migrants is expected to set out across Mexico soon.The U.N. refugee agency noted that Mexico had received 12,574 requests for humanitarian visas Jan. 17-29, almost all from migrants who left Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.The agency interviewed almost 1,000 of the migrants on the border bridge between Guatemala and Mexico. Of those interviewed, almost 30 percent said they wanted to reach the United States; 46 percent said they might remain in Mexico. Almost one-third were minors.last_img read more

Xbox Exclusive Scalebound Officially Cancelled by Microsoft

first_imgStay on target SCUF Prestige Falls Short of Being a Must-Have Premium ControllerOrigin PC Ends Console Wars With PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch Combo Case 2017 is barely two weeks old, but we have our first tragic celebrity death of the year… sort of.Microsoft has announced that it has canceled Scalebound. Rumors about Scalebound’s cancellation began making the rounds early last week among some independent gaming sites and YouTube channels. Earlier today, reputable sources such as Kotaku, Eurogamer, and IGN began to report on this rumors, thus giving it an air of legitimacy. It wasn’t long before Microsoft made the news official.“After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound,” read a press statement from the Redmond-based tech giant.Announced during E3 2014, Scalebound was being developed by Hideki Kamiya and Platinum Games as an Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive title. It was set to be an ambitious action RPG where players could control both a human protagonist and his giant, fire-breathing dragon companion. Given its pedigree, Scalebound made it to the top of many site’s “most anticipated” games lists (including ours… twice!).According to Eurogamer, relations between Platinum Games and Microsoft “dramatically soured” since Scalebound was last seen during Gamescom 2016. Last Fall, senior members of the development staff were forced to take a month off from working on the title to get them “away from the pressure of the project’s heavy workload.” After the devs had returned, Scalebound was behind schedule, and there were problems with the game’s engine. Because of these factors as well as overdue deadlines, the decision was made to pull the plug on the whole thing.Though Scalebound has been canceled, fans of Xbox still have a number of exclusive games to look forward to in 2017. In today’s press release, Microsoft stated that it is “working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games to our fans this year, including Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves” and other great experiences.”It is unclear whether or not Platinum Games can or will resume work on Scalebound on another platform in the future. But for now, the game is, for all intents and purposes, dead. As dead as that Halo Mega Bloks game.last_img read more

Study TwoThirds of US Millennials Cant Identify Auschwitz

first_imgA survey found “significant gaps” in knowledge about Auschwitz and the Holocaust, particularly among millennial-age respondents, according to a statement and survey results released on Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27, 2019. According to the survey, conducted in February 2018 by interviewing 1,350 American adults aged 18 and older, two-thirds of millennials — 66 percent — cannot identify what Auschwitz was. Auschwitz opened in 1940 in southern Poland and was the largest of the Nazi concentration camps.“Auschwitz, Poland – January 1, 2011: The Auschwitz concentration camp is located about 30 miles (50 km) from Krakow. The picture shows two rows of electrical barbed wire surrounding the camp on winter day.”The Holocaust Knowledge and Awareness Study found that seven-out-of-ten Americans say fewer people seem to care about the Holocaust than they used to and a majority — 58 percent — believe something like the Holocaust could happen again, according to the Conference on Material Claims Against Germany, which commissioned the study.AdChoices广告inRead invented by Teads“The survey found there are critical gaps both in awareness of basic facts as well as detailed knowledge of the Holocaust, and there is a broad-based consensus that schools must be responsible for providing comprehensive Holocaust education,” according to a statement released by the Claims Conference.Still photograph from the Soviet Film of the liberation of AuschwitzIn the survey, 11 percent of U.S. adults and over one-fifth of millennials haven’t heard of, or are not sure if they have heard of, the Holocaust.The ignorance gap widens when it comes to identifying what Auschwitz was. When that question was posed, 41 percent of Americans did not know what the camp was, and 66 percent of the millennials did not know, the survey says.Other troubling findings were that 52 percent of Americans wrongly think Hitler came to power through force, when he was elected to office by the German voters.While 84 percent of U.S. adults know that the Holocaust occurred in Germany, just 37 percent identified Poland as a country where the Holocaust also occurred.Auschwitz-Birkenau main track. Photo by C.Puisney CC BY-SA 3.0The study has attracted some criticism. The website Truth or Fiction said that the study “stated that two-thirds of millennials ‘don’t know what Auschwitz was,’ but the article said two-thirds were ‘unable to explain what Auschwitz was.’ ”“Not knowing a thing and being unable to explain a thing are vastly different descriptors — without further details in either the post or the article, readers were not necessarily equipped to determine just what purported level of ignorance ‘millennials’ maintained about the events of the Holocaust.”However, the growth in unawareness about the Holocaust is a widely shared concern, and underscores the need for education.“Selection” of Hungarian Jews on the ramp at Auschwitz-II (Birkenau), May/June 1944A recent CNN poll in Europe revealed that about a third of the 7,000 European respondents across seven countries knew “just a little or nothing at all” about the Holocaust. “In France, nearly 20 percent of young adults between the ages of 18 and 34 said they had never heard of the Holocaust,” according to CNN.Related Video:“This study underscores the importance of Holocaust education in our schools,” Greg Schneider, executive vice president of the Claims Conference said in a statement. “There remain troubling gaps in Holocaust awareness while survivors are still with us; imagine when there are no longer survivors here to tell their stories.”One of the trains that left Bergen-Belsen for Theresienstadt in early April, liberated by American forcesVirtually all of the recently surveyed U.S. adults, or 93 percent, believe all students should learn about the Holocaust in school and 80 percent say it is important to keep teaching about it so it does not happen again, according to the statement accompanying the survey.Read another story from us: Separated at Birth – How Identical Twin Nazi and Jewish Brothers Found Each Other“As we get farther away from the actual events, 70-plus years now, it becomes less forefront of what people are talking about or thinking about or discussing or learning,” said Matthew Bronfman, a board member of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, which commissioned the study, said in an interview with The New York Times.“If we wait another generation before you start trying to take remedial action, I think we’re really going to be behind the eight ball.”last_img read more

These systems are currently available in the United States and a Health Canada license is under review.Carestream’s new Smart Flow imaging technology eliminates the transducer angle limitations of ordinary Doppler ultrasound, and its proprietary Smart Flow method can visualize and measure velocity even when blood flow is perpendicular to the acoustic beam. The resulting measurements are angle independent, and therefore less prone to measurement error. The new ultrasound systems also visualize blood flow in all directions including axial and transverse, which provides more comprehensive information about hemodynamics to assist with diagnostic decisions.Color coding and arrows automatically display information from Smart Flow technology on the Touch Prime Ultrasound platform. The length of the arrow, in addition to the color, indicates magnitude. The orientation of the arrow indicates flow direction. Ordinary color and spectral Doppler ultrasound only measure velocity of flow components toward or away from a transducer.Carestream’s advanced SynTek Architecture simultaneously provides enhanced spatial detail with increased frame rates for improved visualization of moving structures, while optimizing image formation to reduce noise and artifacts. Imaging and Doppler improvements allow for more consistent visualization of subtle tissue contrast differences and can increase the ability to see small structures. These systems also deliver uniform lateral resolution over the entire depth and deeper penetration for imaging of the abdomen and other areas.Carestream offers specialized transducers for vascular imaging as well as radiology, OB/GYN and musculoskeletal imaging. A direct transducer interface to the ultrasound processing board delivers lower noise and higher image quality, and four transducers can be connected simultaneously to any of the system’s four ports. A single touch of a button on the transducer allows the user to activate the transducer as well as program two additional functions from a list of 16 commonly used functions.The Touch Prime XE is capable of frame rates in excess of 100Hz while maintaining enhanced imaging detail, and includes optional features such as a DICOM package, barcode and radiofrequency identification (RFID) badge readers. Wireless connectivity provides rapid image transfers to picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), radiology information systems (RIS) and other systems. An integrated gel warmer delivers added convenience and patient comfort.The Touch Ultrasound platform’s design is based upon recommendations by sonographers and ultrasound professionals across the world. These systems feature a sealed, all-touch control panel that combines the speed and flexibility of a soft user interface with the tactile feedback of traditional keys.

Photo courtesy by AFP / Spanish National PolicePolice arrested seven people as part of the operation – three in Madrid and four in Barcelona – who are suspected of playing a role in the cocaine smuggling operation.Spain, with its historic and linguistic links to South America, is the main entry point to Europe for cocaine from the continent, mostly from Colombia.Smugglers often resort to creative methods to get drugs past Spanish customs.In recent years, police have found cocaine inside breast implants, a wig, a wheelchair cushion, a plaster cast encasing a man’s broken leg as well as inside a 42-piece crockery set.
