Ultrasound treatment ‘eliminates’ prostate cancer, study finds

"with minor side effects". Not bad but a plant based diet prevents it with no side effects

well there's the side effect of NOT EATING MEAT.

So this looks like it is based on the movie and not the book, which is a bummer.
More than a bummer, I'd rate this as an automatic hard pass, if it's based on the movie. That piece of shit was one of the worst butcherings of a great book that I've ever seen.
Haven't read the book in a while, but IIRC the book is a celebration of Fascism, while the movie spoofs it. Also, the movie, while goofy fun, has some excellent design work, from the ships and weapons, to the interactive newscasts. Would you like to know more, indeed.

i wouldn't say spoofs, more like makes a mockery of it. i thought the movie was brilliantly subversive. most people who've seen it don't even realize the humans are the bad guys.

I've been a Cowboy fan since '72 and by about game six into this season I was predicting a 8-8 season. Which is looking likely, plus or minus a game...

I don't get the Cowboys. Personnel wise, it seems like should stack up with anyone - especially on offense. Very good o-line, great running back, very good receivers, and a good to very good quarterback. Is it Kellen Moore? I'm a huge Kellen Moore fan ever since he played high-school ball a half hour from me, but he did get thrust into the o-coordinator role pretty quickly. He's pretty much a "football savant" and I get the Cowboys not wanting to lose him, but experience still counts.

dak is overrated, plain and simple, esp. by diehard cowboys fans. put aaaron rodgers back there and that's a contender easy.

i·ro·ny
noun: irony
a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.

imo a troll is intentionally a pusher of buttons. i think your reference, on the other hand, earnestly believes in his own self-righteousness.

just for you pc players trying to adapt to console - the trick to aiming with the sticks is to get your crosshair as close to the target as your skills enable, then strafe onto the target.

More redeeming than the last season of HBO's "tits and dragons."

Yes, but who knew that Westeros whores went full Brazilian? The cultural significance of it boggles the mind...

Also, I knew it was a Netflix show, but did they put it in theaters? Nothing was showing locally for me.

from what i've heard it's not better than shakespeare's original. which isn't surprising considering Henry V is one of the great macho stories of all time.
the 1989 branagh is good, but my personal fave is the tom hiddlestone adaptation from a few years ago. still, there's a YT compilation of sick burns from rob pattinson's dauphin and it was rather amusing. i might watch it just for that =D

"The role-playing game has made a surprising return to mainstream culture."


Um exsqueeze me? D&D was never mainstream. Gee, what liberal group can I complain to for people co-opting my culture?

Back in the late '70s / early '80s it was at least as mainstream as it is today. The game made a huge splash and even if the actual number of people playing may not have been excessive, it was a well-known cultural touch-point (which really isn't that different from today). And you'd see D&D popping up in places you never expected, being played by people you'd never expect to play the game.

Of course, for original D&D it was all very flash-in-the-pan and its mainstream appeal faded almost as quickly. It quickly became a game relegated to children - and then later to geeky, outcast children; a stigma it is still trying to outgrow. But for a brief, glorious moment in the 70s, D&D was cool and hip and the thing to play.

kinda is again with the rise of geekdome and Stranger Things and several celebrities fully embracing it. i recently got into my first DnD group and none of us are what you'd classify as the traditional socially awkward nerd. well, one of us is i guess, but 5/6 ain't bad!

Never understood the theory the Constitution doesn't apply at the border. Never made any sense at all.

the legal theory is that a border should serve a purpose different from the rest of the country, otherwise there's no point in having a border. but they take that idea way too far. i.e., i personally believe once you prove you're an american citizen all rights and due process should then apply and DHS and CPB can go fuck themselves if you choose. HI FBI!

of course, now DOJ will appeal the shit out of this and we won't see a lasting legal determination for several more years.

This doesn't work from the desktop at launch right? If I read their article correctly I can't just go to a stadia website like I can go to steampowered and buy a game. In order to use the service at launch I need to buy one of their controllers which will be mailed to me along with an access code.

it supports other controllers. i played project stream on an old xbox 360 controller. honestly any controller taht works in windows. all you need to do is sign up for the service and get the app.

So, uh...genuine question. Is this the PC version of RDR2? If so, how does a service like this handle game crashes and things of that nature? Do you just get kicked back to the main screen for the app and can immediately start another session?

good question. i would think it'd restart the game and you're forced to load a save like any other crash. i also beta tested project stream and it never once crashed on me.

i dunno about the other guy above, but my experience was vastly different. on a 70Mbit connection, i could not tell the difference between Stream and the download version i got for free later. there were a few lag spikes that caused it to pixelate but that was super rare. i also never noticed any input lag; this from someone who used to consistently score near the top of the leaderboards in action games like quake and call of duty. the only downside for me was that it was limited to 1080p. i dunno if they've changed that, but if they have, honestly 5/5 recommend for me. especially if you don't have a beefy gaming rig. excellent alternative to droping $1K on a beefy new gaming rig.

i'm surprised it took someone 75 years to check the primary sources. that should be the first thing you do when you begin a new research project. tldr: the original translation of a japanese bomber hitting a surfaced sub was off by a hundred miles. turns out it was correct - the war record indicated a bomb strike aft of the conning tower and the wreckage had a big hole amidships on the deck.

can't tell if you guys increased the font size or just changed to something more readable, but either way the site is approximately 100% more readable on my 34" ultrawide. great work!

are the left side menus supposed to be super wide? or is it just me? i'm on a 3440x1440 ultrawide and the left side menus are... 4 or 5 hundred pixels wide. just guessing, certainly more than a 10th of total screen width. chrome/windows 10. muuuuch wider than any text in the boxes. not a deal breaker, just looks odd for the boxes to be that much wider than the text in them.

And the aircraft racks up 19 to 1 kill ratios in Red Flag exercises.
Please excuse me if I don't take those numbers seriously. They might be an accurate reflection, they might be total lies. Only time and actual combat will truly reveal the F-35's capabilities. If it does do well, it will have been an amazing accomplishment to get through a 27 year design phase and succeed.

not for nothing, but the f-35 has seen combat. the israelis have used theirs to bomb... someone, i forget who.
