Destiny on PS4 has Rise of Iron exclusives for a year private

first_imgIf you pick up Destiny: The Collection on Xbox One you may be getting a ton of Destiny content, including every single DLC pack released so far, but you won’t be getting all of it. Sony has paid good money to keep exclusive Destiny content for their platforms, and they are continuing with it in the upcoming Rise of Iron expansion.The big PS4 exclusive this time is a new quest called Show of Strength, the “story of a Guardian’s impressive feats in a troubled land.” The troubled land is the new world beyond the Cosmodrome, the Plaguelands, where genetically modified creatures called Devil Splicers roam.“While you serve the Vanguard in the Plaguelands, I wonder if you’d be so kind as to help me understand the more brutal aspects of the Devil Splicers’ brand of worship.” – Tyra Karn Completing this quest will reward you with more exclusive content, such as this ship, the Timeless Tereshkova.PS4 Destiny owners will also be able to play in a new exclusive PvP map called Icarus. This is a Golden Age solar farm located in the Languid Sea of Mercury (because really, where else could be a better place for one of those?) that has somehow remained un-touched by the Vex. No one is quite sure why they haven’t invaded, but they want to figure out what has kept it safe. The Vanguard has been denying petitions from weapon foundries to research the place, but they have allowed Lord Shaxx to utilize it as a life-fire training zone. On the PlayStation, at least.Icarus is a mid-sized map that works with any 6v6 game mode. It’s got lots of long sightlines as well as close-combat environments, and it probably gets really hot in those helmets. Check out how it looks in the gallery below! All of this content is exclusive to the PS4 until Fall 2017, so Xbox owners can expect to wait a full year to try it, if they’re not playing Destiny 2 by that point.In more inclusive Destiny news, Bungie has just revealed that Rise of Iron will also come with a long-requested feature- private matches. This will allow you to play almost any variation of Crucible with your friends, allowing the leader of a group to select game type, map, score limit, time limit, light level (enabled or disabled), and time of day. This means that you can run or play private tournaments now, or even just enter a Crucible map for yourself in order to get the lay of the land. Don’t expect Halo levels of game customization and tweaks just yet, but this is a good step in the right direction.Expect this new feature to hit with the Rise of Iron on September 20. <>last_img read more

She was pronounced dead at the scene.Dan Webb, the attorney for Adam Shacknai, asked his client if he participated at all in Zahau’s death.“Most certainly not,” Shacknai testified.Zahau’s mother and older sister filed the wrongful death lawsuit against him, alleging he confronted Rebecca Zahau a day after his brother’s 6-year-old son Max fell from a second-story landing at the mansion and was critically injured. The boy died five days later.The attorney for the plaintiffs, Keith Greer, alleged that Adam Shacknai delivered four blows to the head of Zahau, rendering her partially or fully unconscious. Greer also alleged that the defendant sexually assaulted Zahau, tied her hands and feet, put a noose around her neck and threw her body off a second-story balcony.Greer said the plaintiffs should be awarded unspecified monetary damages for loss of companionship and emotional support.Webb told the jury that there was no evidence that Adam Shacknai — who has lived and worked in Memphis for 30 years — had anything to do with Zahau’s death. Adam Shacknai said Zahau encouraged him to come to San Diego to support his brother at his time of need.Webb said the plaintiffs would not be able to prove their case.The attorney said four law enforcement agencies investigated Zahau’s death for two months and determined that she committed suicide.For KUSI’s complete coverage of the Zahau case, click here.

Services Look to Improve Installations Wireless Coverage

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Wireless communications coverage is limited at some installations, including rural bases and some larger ones, according to language in the committee report accompanying the fiscal 2019 defense authorization bill approved last week by the House. At some larger installations, communications infrastructure outside the fence line is unable to provide consistent or optimal service to portions of the base. To monitor the various approaches the services are pursuing to improve wireless communications capabilities on installations, the House Armed Services Committee directs the service secretaries to brief it by Sept. 30 on their departments’ requirements, plans and timelines for improving coverage.The Navy is considering using real estate agreements, such as easements and enhanced use leases, to allow commercial industry to develop communications infrastructure on its installations to improve service and connectivity, according to the report. The Army and the Air Force also want to improve wireless capabilities on their bases but may be considering a different tack than the Navy.“The committee believes that wireless communications coverage on military installations not only provide valuable support for the quality of life for service members and their families, but also can support military requirements related to force protection, logistics, training or operations,” the report states.last_img read more

17 dead as Pak military plane crashes in residential area

first_imgIslamabad: At least 17 are dead after a Pakistani army plane crashed into a residential area in the major city of Rawalpindi early Tuesday morning, the country’s military said in a statement. Locals reported hearing a loud explosion at about 2 a.m. after seeing a plane flying unusually low over the city. “It was very, very low, unlike the planes that usually fly over the area,” said restaurant worker Irfan Zareen. “Suddenly, the plane started doing somersaults in the air and abruptly crashed.” Also Read – Climate change: Australia downgrades outlook for Great Barrier Reef to ‘very poor’ Advertise With Us The body of a victim, killed after a Pakistani Army Aviation Corps aircraft crashed into residential buildings, is wheeled on a stretcher at hospital in Rawalpindi on July 30.

Terror funding case JKLFs Yasin Malik shifted from JK jail to Delhis

first_imgIn a secret move, the chairman of the J&K Liberation Front, Yasin Malik, was shifted out of the Kot Bhalwal prison to a high-security prison complex of Delhi’s Tihar Jail on Tuesday. Top intelligence sources said that only some higher rank jail officers were aware of the move. Malik was arrested after JKLF was banned by the government under the anti-terror law.”This is in accordance with a policy of zero tolerance against terrorism followed by govt,” Union Home Secretary Rajiv Guha said. Malik has been charged with the kidnapping of former Union Home Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s daughter, the murder of four Indian Air Force personnel and conspiring migration of Kashmiri Hindus from the valley.The Narendra Modi-led government had said that there are nearly 37 FIRs registered against Yasin Malik’s JKLF. The NIA has also registered a separate case against Malik. The NIA had brought Malik to Delhi on Tuesday evening after NIA court issued a production warrant.Who is Yasin Malik?Yasin Malik is one of the popular separatist leaders from Kashmir who has been a proponent of Azaad (independent) Kashmir since 1987 when militancy broke out in the valley. Malik was one of the few local men who crossed the Line of Control to get arms training from Pakistan occupied Kashmir.He floated JKLF which was the militant organisation that carried out many attacks against security forces in the valley. Malik was also arrested several times. But soon afterwards, he shunned the path of violence and is said to have adopted the Gandhian resistance policy. Key Kashmiri seperatist leaders Yasin Malik (L), Syed Ali Shah Geelani (C) and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq hold hands after addressing a press confrence in Srinagar on November 8, 2016.TAUSEEF MUSTAFA/AFP/Getty ImagesThe recent move of the ban on JKLF by the government had evoked condemnation from mainstream politicians like Mehbooba Mufti and others in Kashmir saying that the order was unnecessary since Malik was no longer supporting violence.However, the government reiterated that it has credible evidence of Malik funding stone pelting activities in the valley. It was also said that JKLF was engaged in promoting anti-India feelings among the people of Kashmir, which is detrimental to the country’s territorial integrity.last_img read more

Texas Oil Regulator Says Customs And Border Protection Proposal Would Harm Industry

first_img Share 00:00 /01:15 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Berardo62 via Flickr / CC BY-SA 2.0The energy industry and ship builders are at odds over a Customs and Border Protection proposal.Could Homeland Security slow down the oil industry?A Texas oil and gas regulator thinks so. He says a proposal from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) could get in the way of offshore drilling.CBP wants to rethink how it interprets part of a law called the “Jones Act.” It basically requires ships conducting business along the coast to be American ships, meaning American-made.For decades, the government has allowed certain ships to be exempt from the law, but a proposal from CBP issued in the last few days of the Obama Administration would crack down on the leniency. More ships in the gulf would have to be U.S. ships.Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton says that would be a big cost for oil companies that use cheaper foreign ships, a cost they couldn’t immediately absorb.“So you’re gonna cut off some of the markets because they can’t afford to transport the product,” he says, adding that there just aren’t enough American ships in the gulf to keep the oil business humming.“And even if you went and ordered them all today, we’re talking years to get them all built and manufactured.”Sitton wants the proposal withdrawn, as does the energy industry. But ship builders love it. They describe it as an America-first policy that would support American jobs.Which puts the Trump Administration in a tricky spot. They have until mid-May to decide whether to prioritize energy development or American manufacturing, big Trump talking points that are seemingly at odds in this situation. Listenlast_img read more

10 Obscure Superman Characters Every Fan Should Know

first_imgStay on target Syfy Axes ‘Krypton’ Superhero Series After 2 SeasonsThe Greatest Romances in Comic Book History While Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman may not be coming back to the Supergirl TV show anytime soon, there are plenty of characters in the Super-mythos that the show can dip into. Here, we take a look at some of the most obscure characters from Superman’s universe, both friend, and foe, that we would like to see make a resurgence, be it on Supergirl or in the comics.Lucy LaneAs her name implies, Lucy Lane is in fact related to the Lois Lane. The younger of the Lane sisters, Lucy classically served as a romantic interest for Superman’s best pal, Jimmy Olsen. In modern iterations of the character, she has followed in her father’s footsteps and gone into the military. Eventually enlisted by her father into a top secret project that granted her super powers, Lucy became Superwoman, on a mission involved in a conspiracy to kill Superman. All of this was part of the New Krypton crossover going on in the Supergirl series which has been collected into a trade.Atomic SkullWhile the alias of two different characters, Albert Michaels and Joseph Martin, the idea is that some sort of horrific scientific accident causes them to become super strong, emit beams of radiation, and… have a cool looking glowing skull for a head.Kryptonite ManThe Kryptonite Man is less of a proper villain than he is a recurring pain in Superman’s side, regularly showing up in a different form or capacity every time he rears his ugly, poisonous head. Occasionally a being of pure green radiation, mostly a man infused with said radiation’s energy, the Kryptonite Man is a sure fire way to get Superman beat up. The most recent version of the character, Clay Ramsay, appeared in the New 52 Action Comics Annual #1, where his origin is told and available here.Lori LemarisLori Lemaris is one of those novel concepts that never really made her way out of the Silver Age that she was created in, which is a shame. A mermaid from the city Tritonis, a division of Atlantis, Lori first appeared way back in Superman #129 in 1959, as a college girlfriend of Clark Kent’s. Hiding her… mer-legs… mer-fin?… tail in the disguise of a wheelchair, Lori eventually had to return to Atlantis, revealing to Clark that not only was she not human, but that she knew his secret identity due to her telepathy. She has since appeared in a few modern stories, but nothing of note since a 2007 arc of Superman : Confidential.Christopher KentThe long lost, Phantom Zone-baby of General Zod, Christopher Kent came to earth in a rocket and was found by Lois Lane and Clark Kent. Raising the child as their own, they quickly learned of Christopher’s heritage as Zod came to Earth looking for his child. After spending some time in the Phantom Zone, Christopher emerged rapidly aged, now as a young man, and began fighting crime as the Kryptonian version of the hero Nightwing.Mon-ElA Daxamite, which is essentially a Kryptonian that is weak to lead as opposed to kryptonite, Lar-Gand landed on Earth with amnesia and was found by a young Clark Kent. Naming him “Mon-El”, and assuming him to be his own older brother, Clark eventually accidentally exposes him to lead and sends him to the Phantom Zone to save his life. The Legion of Superheroes in the 31st century eventually retrieve and cure him, where he becomes a valued member of the team. A great introduction to the Mon-El, the Legion, and the mythology of all of them is the Final Crisis : Legion of 3 Worlds storyline from 2009, which has since been collected here.Professor HamiltonProfessor Emil Hamilton was a longtime ally of Superman, constantly aiding him in any problem that was super-science involved. Eventually discovering that Superman’s powers were not just utilizing yellow sunlight, but absorbing it, he deemed that Superman was doing more harm than good, and became a supervillain. Going by the code name of Ruin, he began targeting Superman’s friends and family.ConduitKenny Braverman was born on the same night that Clark Kent’s rocket ship landed on earth. As the rocket passed over the car that Kenny was born in, it exposed baby Kenny to radiation. Infused with Kryptonite-like radiation, Kenny was a sickly child, constantly feeling overshadowed by his classmate Clark Kent. Eventually, he realized what he was, and what he could do with his new power, and he became the villain Conduit.AtlasIn the same story line that re-introduced Lucy Lane as Superwoman, it was revealed that General Sam Lane was responsible for many attacks on Superman. One of the most effective was Atlas, an old creation of Jack Kirby, who is a magically powered being with superb strength. Despite Superman’s weakness to magic, Atlas did not defeat him, but not until after one of the most epic fights in comic books. This story has since been made available online for purchase, which you can find here.Kal KentSuperman’s descendant from the 853rd century, Kal Kent is the Superman of his era. First appearing during the DC One Million event in the 1990’s, Kal has gone on to make appearances in many DC stories, even in Morrison’s own All-Star Superman series. His appearance in All-Star hints at a greater role in the history of Superman, and it has since been collected into a trade paperback, available here.last_img read more

Echoing Silence

first_imgIt is often said that photography is about capturing souls and not smiles. “We are one!” believes Italian artiste, Attilio Tripodi who makes one introspect and visualize landscapes and human emotions in a new way as one takes a walk through his photography exhibition titled, ‘Temporary Solitudes’ at Indian International Centre (IIC) fromJuly 6-16, 11 am to 7pm in the national Capital.“We share our lives with those around us, through our thoughts, actions and emotions as human nature drives us to be sociable. We are connected to each other. We have more or less consolidated our material reality, but we are not often aware of our inner spiritual nature or worse, we deny it,” says Tripodi pointing towards one of his captures. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’ One would witness lines, colours and graphic elements synced in such a way that enhances the ability of an image to communicate. There are around 50 photographs captured in different countries. Also, you will mark only one person in every picture with prevailing landscapes and various angles to rouse emotions.Elaborating on the exhibition…‘Temporary Solitudes’ is my humble gaze of a fragment of humanity. I feel that I am a part of it. I am conscious of the invisible thread that connects the whole of humanity, and that whenever a person gets in the way of its evolution, the benefit is collective.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixI do not wish to disseminate any message but only interpret things and sounds that surround me with a tool called photography. While selecting images for the exhibition, I preferred the ones that matched my aesthetic sense – lines, shapes, and textures can be seen in all my photos.Inspired by human landscapesI always prefer ‘human landscapes’ in my photographs, an innate vision. I like to photograph people immersed in their daily lives, as I too am a part of it and especially because in my journey of inner and spiritual growth, I have learned that we are all connected to each other. I imagined that the protagonists of my photos deliberately seek the solitude required to create a contact with one’s own soul, a necessary prelude to begin a process of growth of evolution. On capturing emotions…Capturing expressions, joy, smiles, awkwardness, signs of aging that draw and redraw faces of different people excite me. I love watching people and capturing them. It paves a way to see myself, through this endless game of mirrors that is life.The journeyIt took me a year and a half to focus on this concept. The images came in a spontaneous and natural way. There were no such challenges, everything just fell in place. I also found some photos taken a few years ago that very well amalgamated with the other photos of the collection as they in sync with its aesthetic expression.Black and white huesMy photos usually express liveliness through colours. For ‘Temporary Solitudes’, I preferred using monochrome as it connects to the theme which is meditative and intimate. The images express a feeling of vitality which unites them, that perhaps have a tinge of melancholy but never sad. I preferred minimal shots without any disturbing elements to accentuate the introspective aspect.Art is never static It is not very different from my previous works. As the Talmud (central text of Rabbinic Judaism) states, “We do not see things as they are, but we see things as we are,” I believe it affirms the uniqueness of each person, despite the similarities. Currently, I’m working on a completely different collection, dedicated to symbols and contradictions of human nature, without moralizing or judging, with a touch of vibrant creativity. Photography is an art and art is a dynamic concept, always moving, never static.last_img read more

Launch of diabetes awareness campaign

first_imgA four-year public awareness campaign on diabetes prevention is being launched this week, the Cyprus National Diabetes Committee announced on Monday.The information campaign, which is being promoted in cooperation with local authorities, is nationwide.The first lecture on the subject takes place on Thursday in Lythrodontas and will provide residents with information by specialised doctors on the prevention and treatment of the disease while blood sugar level and blood pressure tests are also available.As stated by the European Commission, diabetes is a common and serious disease, and Cyprus is among the EU countries with the highest frequency. In the EU, the frequency of diabetes varies from around 4 to 4.5 per cent in Lithuania, Estonia and Ireland to just under 10 per cent in Cyprus, Malta and Portugal.Worldwide, in 2015 there were 415 million adults aged 20 to 79 with diabetes, according to the most recent estimates of the International Diabetes Federation. This represents about 9 per cent of the population of this age group. If left unchecked, some 642 million people are expected to have diabetes by 2040.Diabetes increases the risk for many serious health problems such as cardiovascular diseases, blindness, neuropathy, foot complications and nephropathy.However, the EU Commission reports, lifestyle intervention provided for people at high risk may prevent many cases of type 2 diabetes, the more common condition, or delay significantly its onset. Moreover, many people with diabetes are able to prevent or delay the onset of complications with treatment, lifestyle changes and efficient self-management.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoSenior Living | Search AdsLuxury Senior Apartments in Rowland HeightsSenior Living | Search AdsUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
