With Borderlands Crossover Fortnite Just Advertises Other Games Now

first_imgStay on target Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech SuitsSwatting Attack Targets Fortnite World Champion Fortnite is so big that we’re frankly bored of reperating how big it is. Epic constantly cranks away at the battle royale to make sure it makes all the money in the world, but what if they’ve already achieved that goal? What’s next? Well the latest event may give us the answer. With its Borderlands crossover Fortnite uses its lofty perch to just straight-up promote other video games now.Fortnite X Mayhem is a new limited challenge included in Season X. In this Borderlands mashup players travel to a Rift Zone based on Pandora, the primary planet of Gearbox’s loot shooter. In Pandora you can spawn if a shield if you avoid getting hit. And you can get gear based on sassy robot Claptrap and the Psycho mascot.Fortnite x Borderlands makes a certain amount of sense. Both shooters share a colorful irreverent tone, even if Borderlands pushes things towards M-rated Deadpool territory. But it’s the business potential that’s most interesting to us. Previous Fortnite crossovers advertised big movies like Avengers: Endgame and John Wick 3 right before they released. Advertising a big game though to an audience that already cares about game is something else entirely. Plus Borderlands 3 runs on Epic’s Unreal Engine and is an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC. Reminds us of the time PUBG included Uncharted skins for its PS4 release.Fortnite X Mayhem begins September 10. Borderlands 3 releases on September 13. But no matter what game you play, we just hope we don’t need to see any more of Randy Pitchford’s magic tricks.

Brewing tax reform with Herrera Beutler

first_imgCraft brewers met with U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler on Thursday to make their case for a bill that would cut their federal taxes and allow them to grow faster.The Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act, co-sponsored by Herrera Beutler, would reduce federal excise taxes brewers pay on their first 60,000 barrels a year. The tax would drop from $7 per 31-gallon barrel to $3.50.Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, held a roundtable at Vancouver’s Ghost Runners Brewery with a handful of brewers to hear about taxes, which she said seemed to disproportionately impact small operators.“It seems like a fairness issue,” she said. “You’re starting a business and growing it; it’s capital intensive, especially something like this. They’re taxed on a higher scale than those who produce more. So why not give them the ability to reinvest the money on the front end so they can grow and be big, and pay more in the end?”That point was echoed by local brewers. Trimming federal taxes, they said, would save them thousands of dollars annually, which could then be invested into their businesses, creating jobs and raising wages.last_img read more

Distracted driving law nets 337 stops

first_imgDuring the first week that the new distracted driving law was in effect, Washington State troopers stopped 337 motorists statewide they suspected of violating the law, but issued just 27 citations.The other 310 drivers benefited from a grace period in effect until January. During the grace period, troopers are focusing on educating the public about the law rather than simply issuing citations, according to a news release from the state patrol.The new law, Distracted While Under the Influence of Electronics, targets motorists using cellphones, iPads or other electronic devices while driving. It took effect on July 23.Between July 23 and July 29, troopers gave verbal warnings in 306 cases, issued written warnings in four cases, and wrote 27 citations, the news release said.Fines are $136 for a first offense, and $234 for each subsequent offense.Other distracted driving behaviors could lead to a secondary offense that could prompt an additional $99 fine.last_img read more

Vancouver residents featured in film about St Helens blast

first_imgUPDATE: Changed the time of Monday’s airtime to 4 p.m.Fay Blackburn lost her husband, Reid Blackburn, on Mount St. Helens in 1980.Geologist Richard Waitt spent 35 years collecting accounts from 400 survivors and witnesses.Now the two Vancouver residents are sharing their stories in a Smithsonian Channel film that debuted Sunday and repeats at 4 p.m. Monday. Their insights into the volcanic eruption on May 18, 1980, are part of the premiere episode of the Smithsonian Channel’s six-part series, “Make It Out Alive.”Fay Blackburn’s memories of the event, however, never included fuzzy pink slippers, regardless of what the film’s reenactments might indicate.That was just one of the issues she had with the re-created scenes that alternated with science lessons, archive imagery and survivor interviews. Actors fill in for principal characters — including the Blackburns — in re-creations of life-or-death moments.“I was disappointed. I never had any indication there would be reenactments,” she said.Blackburn is a retired Columbian employee. Reid Blackburn was a Columbian photographer. In its six live-or-die stories, the film lists the characters as photographer, veteran, vulcanologist, camper, student and lumberjack. Three lived; three were among the 57 who died.If you substituted “old curmudgeon” for “veteran,” a lot of people around here would immediately know who the three victims were, which takes away some of the suspense.There is a bit of early scene-setting by Waitt, author of “In the Path of Destruction: Eyewitness Chronicles of Mount St. Helens.”Click, zip, clickIn addition to providing scientific background, Waitt offers some narration of survival stories. After the student, Keith Ronnholm, woke up to an erupting volcano, he couldn’t decide whether to put on his pants or take photographs.last_img read more

Carolyn Long seeks to inspire women to run for office

first_imgCarolyn Long wants to talk about the power of losing. About how campaigning is a journey, not just a destination. About how keeping an eye on the broader reasons for running for office — serving the public, inspiring others, enacting a shared vision — can help keep a loss in perspective.Of course, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go another round.“Even the journey is a win for you. You learn about yourself,” Long said at a training session for current and prospective political candidates hosted by the National Women’s Political Caucus of Washington at the Hilton Vancouver Washington on Saturday.“Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try again,” Long added. “That’s very important, as well.”During her speech at the training session, the Democrat, who last year lost her campaign against Republican U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, played it coy on whether she’d pursue a 2020 congressional run. She dodged audience questions on if or when she planned to declare another campaign after her 2018 run proved the only serious challenge to Herrera Beutler since the congresswoman was first elected in 2010.But she certainly didn’t rule it out. And she hit the “try, try again” theme pretty hard for someone who isn’t at least considering a second run.Losing, she said, is an opportunity for reflection, “and a time for planning for the future.” It’s also a chance to reconnect with the driving factors that motivated you to run in the first place.last_img read more

PS Fisheries Expresses Concern over Illegal Fishing Activities

first_imgBy: Makutu MannehThe Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Fisheries has on Thursday said most of the local fishermen and trawlers operating in Gambian waters are engaged in illegal fishing activities.Dr Bamba A.M Banja on Thursday saidy: “This is a global problem; Gambia is not the only country facing it.”Dr Banja who made this statement during an interview with this paper, was reacting to claims by local fishers who alleged that Chinese Fishing trawlers operating in Gambian waters used unauthorized nets to catch fish including juvenile ones.He said that is why the Ministry of Fisheries is in the process of buying a new petrol boat for the navies so that they would be in a position to effectively police the country’s territorial waters against poachers, illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing in the Gambia.He said the Ministry of Fisheries is working with its development partners and other players at sub-regional level to combat IUU which they are doing by carrying joint surveillance missions which involve other countries.He said they will not relent in the battle against illegal, unreported and unregistered fishing until they eradicate the practice in The Gambia.Dr. Bamba A.M Banja earlier said industrial fisheries activities in The Gambia are regulated by his Ministry.He mentioned that each fishing vessel has its limitation in Gambian waters. He said the local fishermen are to fish from 0 to 9 nautical miles, while “industrial fishers are authorized depending on the size of their vessel which can be from 9\12 or 12 beyond nautical miles”.He added if any of the fishing vessels goes beyond the nautical miles, they are allowed to operate, then, they are encroaching into the zones reserved for others which is punishable under Gambian law.Dr. Benja said in the event any vessel crosses its territory to another boundary, it would not be the responsibility of the fisheries ministry to react, but that of the Gambia Navy because it is their responsibility to protect the coastal and fishery waters.“Fishing in the wrong zone is against the fishery law which the fishermen don’t understand,” he said.He further said before fishing trawlers are given permission to fish in the sea, they have to come for inspection and in the process, they look at their facilities, net sizes and others to see if they are in conformity with what the legislation is demanding from them.He remarked: “We cannot give license to a fishing trawler that has not fulfill the requirements of the law.”The net size is regulated and inspected and if any vessel is found fishing with the wrong net sizes, the vessel is intercepted and the crew arrested, he added.He said they have registered about 50 to 60 trawlers, adding these trawlers are given three months to operate and after that, some can come and renew their license again.He said they need the participation of Gambians in the sector especially the women and youth, saying only few Gambians are fishing.He said fishery is a very important sector for the Gambian economic because it has the potential to create employment opportunities and bring revenue and foreign exchange as well as improve the nutritional status of Gambians.last_img read more

Basile doesnt like Marcelo Bielsas popularity

first_imgWith the most recent job that Marcelo Bielsa has at Leeds United in English football’s Championship, compatriot Alfio Basile thrashed him for his popularity.We can’t say that we don’t agree with the Argentine former manager Alfio ‘Coco’ Basile, who recently spoke to newspaper La Nacion and harshly criticized Marcelo Bielsa’s inclination towards marketing around his reputation in the sport. Since he started his career as a professional manager, we always wondered why everybody always regarded Marcelo as some kind of genius when he has never really won any major trophies at the highest level of competition. Every time the manager does take a big squad that has many world-class stars in it, something happens that usually ends up with him resigning or getting sacked and yet everybody who talks about him almost attributes the cure of cancer to his name. Someone from his own country finally came out and criticized the manager, who is currently coaching English club Leeds United on the Championship. It was Alfio ‘Coco’ Basile who talking to newspaper La Nacion, went after Bielsa for being so “marketing inclined”.Basile: “Bielsa es lo más marketinero que he visto en mi vida” https://t.co/4ptV7GRil7 pic.twitter.com/YpptC7xffF— LA NACION (@LANACION) August 23, 2018“I don’t want to talk about Bielsa because he is the most marketing-oriented person I’ve ever seen. It’s probably not his fault because he does look like a nice guy, but I still can’t explain how they agree to televise his Championship matches. Who paid that when he managed Lille for example? I just can’t believe it. Plus, he never wants to coach a top-tier club that is pressured to win titles. Who else has had his second division matches televised before? They wouldn’t even do that with Mourinho! I just can’t explain it. I actually spoke to him once in Atocha, the Madrid train station. I went to see the Argentina national team that played in Sevilla once, and he was managing the squad. He saw me and invited me to sit down for a coffee. I remember him asking me how the qualifiers were. After that, I never saw him again. His kind are weird guys, you don’t see them anywhere,” said Basile to La Nacion.? | Upon arriving at the ground, the players take time out to meet and sign autographs for our fantastic travelling support #AllLeeds pic.twitter.com/vfV9pba3jZ— Leeds United (@LUFC) August 21, 2018Bielsa’s real appeal.But studying a bit more about this character and trying to understand him, we do have to say that this is a man who studies football every hour of every day and never gets tired of it. Plus his tactical ideas when seen during a football match are very interesting, he does have offensive inclinations that are very entertaining to watch. Pep Guardiola himself has declared that he is a devoted Bielsa fan, every time he has time to speak about the Argentine only praise comes out of his mouth. But we still fail to understand why he still isn’t able to control his personality, because Bielsa has always had trouble or arguments with important people from every single squad he manages. There have been many reports from the players of Marcelo Bielsa treating them like garbage, the incidents with the Chilean national team players and the Athletic Club roster are well-documented.Diego Simeone goes after Real Madrid’s lack of style again Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – August 5, 2019 During a long interview for La Nacion, Diego Simeone came after Real Madrid’s lack of school and praised other clubs above them.We’ve all known…40’ Shackleton got to the byline, played a great ball across the goal and Kemar Roofe tapped home1-1 | #SWALEEpic.twitter.com/IXahkxic75— Leeds United (@LUFC) August 21, 2018Bielsa’s current form in Leeds United.Then there is the proof of his football philosophy, Marcelo Bielsa has played fantastic football at Leeds United since he first arrived in the Championship and currently has the squad in second place playing offensive football that is just as entertaining as Josep Guardiola’s Manchester City. It’s pretty easy for any marketing team of any club in the world to market a squad that plays football like that, Marcelo Bielsa is the perfect example of a man who executes his ideas just the way he wants to and there is a huge reason why a lot of people regard him in such high esteem. We still don’t know if Bielsa will be able to take Leeds United back to the Premier League, it would certainly be a great achievement in the Argentinean manager’s career and we would obviously love to watch him play against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the next season of the top division of English football. We get why ‘Coco’ may be salty about this, but after a thorough analysis and consideration, we don’t agree with him anymore.El Leeds United de Marcelo Bielsa suma 3 victorias en 3 partidos. Así saca el balón jugado su equipo en Inglaterra. pic.twitter.com/ywlMWtyqaW— Fonsi Loaiza (@FonsiLoaiza) August 14, 2018What do you think Bielsa has that makes him such a special football manager?

Arnautovic discusses mental pressure on footballers

first_imgWest Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic insists footballers are under far more pressure than many fans realise.The former Inter Milan striker came under fire from Stoke City fans after moving to West Ham last year.He was then vilified by the Hammers’ fans for a poor first half after the season before coming good to help save them from relegation.The Austria international has maintained that form this season with his five Premier League goals making him joint-third in the scoring charts. But he admitted to the scrutiny taking its toll.He said, according to Mirror:“It’s easy, from the outside to hammer people, hammer the players and say, ‘He didn’t do this well, he didn’t do that well.’”declan rice, england, West ham UnitedReport: England’s Rice gets death threats George Patchias – September 9, 2019 England International Declan Rice has received death threats.Rice a one time Ireland International, switched allegiances only this year.

We don’t talk about money, you cry.”“Sometimes because there is so much pressure on you, you have to deal with this because a lot of players go, ‘I’m okay, no worries’ – it’s not right, “ but in the game, it’s affecting you.”Meanwhile, Arnautovic has revealed he would have become a businessman instead of a player if his dad had his way.The 29-year-old, who has since confounded his father’s expectations, also admits he can understand when supporters take their frustrations out on the West Ham team.Arnautovic explained: “There were a few occasions when my father told me that I have to go to this company to work, maybe to take a test to see if they’ll take me.“I got to the test and sat there and didn’t write anything, because I didn’t want to work there. I wanted to play football and wanted to make this my job.”last_img read more

Bahamas Crisis Centre on Marital Rape

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Dr. Sandra Dean-Patterson (Director)Release: Crisis Centre Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, December 27, 2017 – Nassau – Every individual in the Bahamas, men women and children have the right to live a life free from violence and be protected under the law.  In today’s Bahamas, married women living with their husbands do experience this protection when that husband beats or psychologically abuses them.  We understand and accept the notion that beating or abusing a married woman is wrong but somehow, we close our eyes or refuse to accept that they can be sexually assaulted by their husbands.  In the same way that a husband beats or murders his wife, he can also rape her.At the Crisis Centre we hear stories of women forced to have sex with their husbands despite their obstetrician’s advice to abstain following the birth of a baby, women getting HIV or STI’s from abusive husbands who have other women and force sex on them.  From many of those victims we hear the shame and humiliation they feel following sexual assault by their husbands and their sense of powerlessness.  These are but some of the examples where marital rape occurs.  It is a devastating and traumatizing experience for women to find out that our law does not protect them from this behavior.  Statements which misinform citizens about their right to safety or protection normalize violence and perpetuate rape myths and belief systems that husbands have the right to make choices for their wife’s bodies without their consent.  This is abhorrent and unacceptable.  The tendency has been to believe that stranger rape is the only real rape, but we know sexual assault occurs within dating, common law and marital relationships.  Marital rape occurs in a relationship where domestic violence is part of a pattern of behavior that women live with for years.To hear that the law does not prohibit husbands from forcing wives to have sex and to hear a debate in the country that speaks to the privacy of marital rape discourages victims even more and makes them question their country’s consideration for them and their right to be safe in their homes.  Marital rape is real, and we must name it as behavior that is inconsistent with human rights and healthy relationships within marriage.  It is our hope that the government will take this opportunity to develop a comprehensive domestic and sexual violence act which looks at all issues where persons are not protected under the law.center_img Related Items:last_img read more
