Yep. At worst it'll be a "I'll watch it on Netflix" 2 hour time diversion.

You guys would definitely be surprised. I did Hour of Code at a nearby school and the teacher showed me a vid of a class project using Minecraft. They created a huge, historic building with an impressive amount of detail. The class learned cooperation, software skills, programming, persistence, and on and on... I'm sure they could have created a tooth stick model or something as well, but Minecraft really held up as a medium for them to accomplish that feat. I definitely don't think it's for every student or class, but given the right mix I think it works great!

Yeah, like I said, it sounds really very interesting.

Let's hope it's not like Prometheus. There's plenty of opportunity for a great movie in the AC lore.

Someone with some Photoshop Skillz should make a picture of a front door with a key taped to it, and a sign below the key that says "FOR GOOD GUYS ONLY! BAD GUYS, DO NOT USE!!!"

Remasted isnít a typo. Itís a pun. A delicious pun.

I would call it a hearty pun. Or perhaps a salty one.

Yeah... still zero interest in playing seasons, Blizzard. Forcing stash unlocks into seasonal play is really a scumbag move.
Worse than that, the things you need to get done are not trivial. Probably beyond less committed players.

Well, the seasons are considered to be "end game" content, so it was never really for less committed players to begin with.

I have several colleagues who play the crap out of seasons, and they are always massively excited when a new one starts. I personally don't get it, though I get a chuckle out of how ludicrously overpowered the builds are becoming.

Patriots will yawn their way to another Superbowl, and the level of smug bullshit coming out of Boston because of it will likely create a singularity that will destroy us all.

I wonder how legal this is. Someone needs to call the Attorney General, tell him to wake up and have a looksee if this isn't just a terrifying abuse of market power.

8. Standing desks Jan 15, 2016, 15:01 Creston
 
Following 27 high school freshman over one school year, researchers found that using a standing desk generally improved the kidsí neurocognitive test scores by seven to 14 percent. The tests, given both at the beginning and end of the school year, evaluated cognitive processes such as reasoning and working memory.

Hmmm, and that wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that they've gone through a year of education, would it? You know, the thing that typically helps a kid with their neurocognitive test scores? Nope, must be the standing desks!

Of course, at least they would have tested this against a control group of students who sat at their desks all year.

Because the study was a pilot, it lacked a sitting control group for comparing cognitive performance.

Oh.

Ultimately, the authors conclude, this study could kick off others that prove that standing desk use in kids can "drive their cognitive development and impact educational outcomes."

Ultimately, the authors should have concluded that their test was stupid, lacked any form of controlled variables, and just wasted money.

Authors conclude that kids are smarter after another year of school. Groundbreaking study, at 11!

I always wanted to see how a self driving car navigates dense fog and a snow storm or horrible snowed in roads. Wonder how this will turn out.

Right now they do basically none of those things (not sure on fog, I think fog would be okay since the radar cuts right through it. But definitely not heavy rain or snow). Most self driving cars that are out right now do great in nice, bright sunny weather. Once it starts raining heavily, or snowing, they start running off the road.

Elon is funny when he says that his Tesla will run coast to coast on autonomous mode in 24-36 months, because what he really means is "as long as it doesn't rain."
