Battlefield 3: End Game flaunts Air Superiority

Battlefield 3 End Game
Despite having spent hours with Battlefield 3 (Roxio hd pro), my jet-setting career has been far from illustrious. A few minutes soaring high above the carnage below, an idle attempt to shoot something and, inevitably, a nose-first crash into a building while desperately hoping no-one was looking. Even with my gross incompetence, I’m looking forward to End Game’s Air Superiority (Xbox recording software) mode. The 12 vs. 12 dogfights look like just the intensive crash course in aerobatic aptitude that I need. In preparation for End Game’s March release, DICE have unveiled the mode’s very first screenshot.

Is that a blimp in the distance? Maybe Air Superiority (Roxio HD game capture) means bonus points for taunting slower, more primitive aeronautic efforts.

First image from 'Assassin's Creed IV': Yo ho ho and a bottle of KILL

AC4BF_PS3_UK_2D_92371_640screen
The Assassin’s Creed (PS3 recording software) franchise has adopted an annual-release model the last few years, presenting gamers with a new opportunity every fall to jump across the rooftops of their favorite densely-researched historical cityscapes. But last year’s Assassin’s Creed 3 (Roxio game capture) seemed to mark a turning point for the franchise. We don’t know much about the next entry, but Ubisoft just released an evocative bit of key art which reveals two things: 1. The name of the game, and 2. A very rough idea of the setting.

So there you have it. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (Roxio hd pro) will take the franchise’s usual historical-ninja-monk protagonists and set them loose in the land of pirates. The flag behind the newest assassin shows the iconic Skull-and-Crossbowns pirate flag overlaid with the mark of the Assassins. Memorize that image, because at least one of your cousins might get it tattooed on their bicep soon. Also, Mr. Pirate Assassin appears to have about twenty weapons on his person. So, presumably, this will not be a game about soft diplomacy.

People's Choice Awards 2013: Host Kaley Cuoco passed over for award
Host Kaley Cuoco promised the audience and home viewers an "awesome" night when she opened Wednesday night's People Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

It was "The Big Bang Theory" star's second consecutive year hosting the event, one of the first award shows of 2013. She opened it with a montage showing her in scenes from hit 2012 movies like "The Hunger Games" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" before battling zombies dancing to "Gangnam Style."

Cuoco, who made news earlier in the day when it was announced she would join William Shatner in a new Priceline ad, was also up for an award -- favorite comedic TV actress -- but she lost to Lea Michele of "Glee." However, "The Big Bang Theory" did claim the award for favorite network TV comedy and Cuoco joined the rest of the cast on stage.

Coast Guard evacuates crew of troubled oil drilling barge
U.S. Coast Guard helicopters were evacuating the crew of a troubled oil drilling barge off the coast of southern Alaska Saturday afternoon after engine troubles on its tow vessel had left the barge drifting toward landfall south of Kodiak Island.

The move followed a tense night, when high seas and heavy winds prevented any evacuation and left Coast Guard officials worried that the Kulluk rig, which was returning from a season of offshore drilling in the Arctic, could run aground if the situation were not brought under control.

“The weather on scene is testing the limits of our Coast Guard crews. The professionalism of our air crews and cutter men and women have prevented the situation from deteriorating further,” said Rear Adm. Thomas Ostebo, commander of the 17th Coast Guard District in Juneau, Alaska.

On Saturday afternoon, engineers were able to restart the last of the four engines on the Aiviq towing vessel and also attach a line from a second ship brought in by Shell Alaska, the Nanuq.

The armada of three was steaming slowly southward, away from land, and Shell engineers were attempting to decide the best nearby harbor in which to shelter and reassess.

Mercury in seafood: Where does it come from?
Yes, there is water on Mercury, but there is also mercury in the water. Lots of it.

In fact, according to a giant new report called “Sources to Seafood: Mercury Pollution in the Marine Environment,” mercury pollution near the ocean’s surface has more than doubled as a result of human activities over the last century.

That mercury is largely invisible to most of us — invisible as it makes its way into fish and other wild seafood and largely invisible in our bodies when we eat that seafood. That is, until it causes major cognitive or developmental issues in babies born to women who have been exposed.

Of course, these days, most women of childbearing age are told to be cautious about the kinds of fish that are high in mercury (mainly top-of-the-food-chain species, such as tuna, swordfish, and shark). But how often do we hear about where it originates (that is, unless you’re a regular reader of Grist’s David Roberts)?

McKibben To Wall Street Journal: ‘Fossil-Fuel Companies Have Become Outlaws Against The Laws Of Physics’
Bill McKibben has a letter responding to an error-riddled Wall Street Journal op-ed — though I guess that’s redundant. This one attacks clean energy and the fossil-fuel divestment effort McKibben supports.

McKibben writes:

Robert Bryce’s Dec. 17 op-ed (“Harvard Needs Remedial Energy Math“) attacking campus efforts to have universities divest themselves of holdings in fossil-fuel companies is interesting for what it omits: even the slightest attempt to rebut the mathematical logic that shows fossil-fuel companies have become outlaws against the laws of physics. Here are the numbers: In order to prevent the two-degree Celsius rise in temperature that even the most conservative governments on earth have committed to avoiding, scientists tell us we can burn enough coal and oil and gas to produce 565 gigatons of CO2. Unfortunately, the planet’s fossil-fuel companies, and the countries that operate like fossil-fuel companies (think Venezuela and Kuwait), have five times that much in their reserves. It’s what their share prices are based on; they obviously plan to burn it; indeed, they spend hundreds of millions of dollars daily looking for more. If their business plan is carried out, the planet tanks.

Subsequent to delivering a baby , one key element is in dealing with fats from a variety of certain foods . All dishes that contain dietary fat normally include combos of fatty acids-the chemical developing blocks of fat . Understanding the combination of fatty acids in your daily diet will help you to figure out how to choose healthy foods with the good fats and keep away from those foods that contain the bad fats . 

For good fats , look to monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids . These can commonly be found in many vegetables , oils , and nuts , such as avocados , almonds , and olive oil . All of these will help body system to resist attack from toxins , that are explicitly produced types of atoms that can affect your cells.

Revved-Up Protein Fights Aging
An unlikely, decadelong journey that began with the discovery of a rapidly aging mouse has led scientists to a protein that seems to protect animals from cancer and other scourges of old age—with no apparent downsides. There are still lots of mysteries about the protein, called BubR1, but the work offers clues about how protecting chromosomes can enhance health.

Cancer biologist Jan van Deursen at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and his colleagues were initially interested in studying a common feature of cancers, called aneuploidy. Aneuploid cells have too few or too many chromosomes. Nearly all cancer cells fall into this category, but it's not clear whether aneuploidy actually causes cancer. van Deursen, along with a then-graduate student, Darren Baker, engineered mice to produce less BubR1, a protein that helps cells segregate their chromosomes when they divide. When BubR1 is reduced, chromosomes can't properly separate into identical daughter cells, leaving some daughters with the wrong number of chromosomes. van Deursen, Baker, and their colleagues wanted to see whether these mice would develop cancer.

Chris Brown Twitter Feuds: The Year in Breezy's Digital Tantrums
There are two contradictory rules of Twitter success that get told to everyone who signs up for the micro-blogging service: 1) be yourself, and 2) don’t say anything controversial. This year, R&B star Chris Brown was very good at the first one of those, and very bad at the second. With his history of domestic violence having gone seemingly unpunished, Brown is probably always going to have a legion of digital haters waiting to pounce on his every word, but in the future, he might want to think about taking a deep breath and counting to ten before @replying them. Or is that asking Chris Brown to act against his very nature?

Just how many Twitter feuds did Brown get into during this awesome musical year? So, so many. We run down Breezy’s 12 months of online drama, below.

Toshiba Satellite U920T-108 review


Should I buy the Toshiba Satellite U920T?

Like Dell's XPS 12 and Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga, the U920T converts from a tablet into a laptop. Sadly, the sliding method it employs is awkward at best, making it the least pleasant transformation technique I've used. Dell's flipping screen is considerably easier to do.

At £868, it might be slightly cheaper than its rivals, but it's still far too expensive. It has a rather dim, low-resolution screen and lower-end specifications that don't justify the high price tag.

It doesn't struggle with the essential tasks, but if you particularly want a Windows 8 convertible then it's well worth splashing the extra cash for the XPS 12. The better performance and luscious Full HD screen make it a worthy investment.

For the same money though, you could buy a great regular laptop. Alternatively, opt for a budget laptop for work use and grab a Microsoft Surface for Windows 8 touchscreen fun on the go.

Review: 'It's a SpongeBob Christmas!' adds an extra dimension


In a sort of holiday miracle — brought about by the painstaking work of human hands — SpongeBob SquarePants gains a third dimension this week.

The cartoon that bears his name, which has remained firmly, even boldly, flat for its nine seasons (over 13 years), has been puppet-animated for the yuletide special "It's a SpongeBob Christmas." As antic as its model, and a little more magical and lifelike, it premieres Friday night on CBS, at the stay-up-late hour of 9:30 (following rebroadcasts of the old Rankin/Bass cartoon "Frosty the Snowman," the Bill Melendez "Frosty Returns" and "Hoops & Yoyo Ruin Christmas," starring characters created for Hallmark cards), and will repeat on its home network, Nickelodeon, Sunday, Dec. 9, at a child-friendly 7:30 p.m. (It is already available on DVD.)
