Of course, it's no secret that the Hemsworth brothers are both big fans of surfing ; they're Aussies, after all, and are frequently spotted out catching waves. In his Men's Health cover story, Liam revealed he swears by ice baths as a method for recovering from intense workouts.
Dr. Todd Died tweeted a video Wednesday that showed him slipping on ice and losing control of something in his hand as he got out of his truck. I don’t think I’ve played a game that ever gave me a similar thrill from speed as I got from Without.
It was masterful at throwing you round tracks, always very edge of control. It’s the first game from an indie studio named 34BigThings, a trio of Italian developers that just wanted to make something cool.
A new handling model, and a longer development time was the result: the game’s now planned to be released in 2015. Originally the team had “looked at acceleration curves and a formula for steering grip” based on cars using tires.
Think of Red:Out’s mad flying things as jets without wings rather than cars without wheels. And this, even with a slowed down version of the game to help newbies cope with the speed.
They’re beautiful: you skim the surfaces of deserts, fly through ice floes and bounce through the streets of neon-metropoli. There’s a liveliness to their architecture that you just don’t see on PC racing games outside Track mania, taking full advantage of Unreal 4’s lighting tech.
A representative for Otter Media told The Verge that they are “focused on creating new content with the Machining team, which will be distributed on new channels to be announced in the coming months.” YouTube's creators and users noticed the main channel’s barren presence on Friday afternoon.
Machining, which was founded in 2000 and launched its official YouTube channel in 2006, massed more than 12 million subscribers over the past decade. The only heads up many Machining Creators received from the company came from an email sent by Full screen’s general manager, Beau Bryant.
The letter, which was uploaded to Twitter via many Machining Creators, states that Full screen’s team is “going to great lengths ‘behind-the-scenes’ to ensure a smooth and efficient transition.” Creators like Oliver Hull, who operates a YouTube channel with more than 1.4 million subscribers and has worked under Machining Creators banner for years, told The Verge via Skype it took multiple emails to get his Machining contact to respond to his questions about their future.
As Machining seemed to become less integral to Warner Bros., and as multi-channel networks became more irrelevant to YouTubers, creators like Hull started setting up their own, independent channels. Hull told The Verge he was worried something like this might happen and, considering that everything can change overnight, is happy that he has a second channel that’s monetized and completely his own.
Minecraft YouTube creator Tyler ‘Logdotzip’ Pampas and fighting game creator Maximilian ‘Good’ Christian sen were dropped by Machining following content ID claims on their older videos, according to Prefilter. This means they were effectively fired, and had to go through YouTube to remonetize their channel and earn AdSense revenue.
Machining represented YouTube’s early promise for creators, and its disappearance is a final farewell to a bygone era. “I echo everything my friends & former Machining employees have said about this shitty situation,” Twitch streamer Scott Fisher tweeted.
The wealth destruction caused by Monday’s market collapse is reshaping the ranks of the world’s richest people. While energy moguls sustained the biggest shellacking in percentage terms, losses cascaded across industries and continents.
Frenchman Bernard Arnault, chairman of luxury-goods giant LVMH, was Europe’s biggest decliner with a $4.4 billion drop. Carnival Corp. Chairman Micky Arison’s stake in the beleaguered cruise line operator slid almost 20% to $2 billion.
China’s Qin Ringling added $536 million to his net worth as shares of his Mu yuan Foodstuff Co. rose 4.3%. Li Citing, chairman of Chinese medical equipment maker Shenzhen Min dray Bio-Medical Electronics, gained $143 million, bringing his net worth to $13.7 billion.
After all, tons of scams have been identified over the last few months, and people across the country continue to lose money by falling for them. We told you about an issue before where spam requests for money that were popping up on users’ Venmo accounts.
Out of an abundance of caution, the woman searched online and found Cash App’s toll-free number, which she called to find out what was wrong. In fact, Cash App doesn’t have a phone number for customer support.
The man on the other end of the line had the woman download an app that gave him remote access to her account. In that case, thieves preyed on a teacher out of Fort Worth, Texas, who’d found a fraudulent charge posted to her account.
The woman searched the number for Cash App customer service and got the scam line instead. Lewis said it was tough to find the number for Cash App customer service, so she Googled it, called, and a man answered.
The man on the other end of the phone told her she needed to download the Team Viewer app, so he could “verify her account was legit.” Unsuspecting Lewis downloaded the app, which allowed him to drain her bank account in a matter of minutes. The report states that these scams appear to have surged in recent months as more people use the apps.
Never respond to messages requesting gift cards or payments in return for your “prize.” Real companies don’t ask for these things. Romania’s largest pension fund disposed of its stake in Wirecard AG weeks before the scandal around the payment company broke, a narrow escape for 2 million Romanians already reeling from the economic devastation of the coronavirus pandemic.
The disposal meant that IN Pens ii, which still took a loss on the shares, was spared the worst of the collapse after an audit revealed that more than $2 billion went missing from Wirecard’s accounts. Two months of a strict lockdown battered its economy, hurting the savings of 7.5 million Romanians whose mandatory benefits are managed by private pension funds.
Exposure on each foreign or local issuer -- and therefore its price volatility -- is limited in the overall fund portfolio,” Chief Executive Officer Andrea Pimpernel said in a phone interview on Friday. Under the Romanian mandatory pension plan, funds need to invest the bulk of their holdings on local markets, with only a smaller share allowed in foreign equity for diversification.
With more than $5 billion in mandatory savings under management, IN Pens ii first invested in Wirecard in 2018 and gradually increased its stake to 0.6% of total assets, its largest foreign equity exposure at the end of last year. In contrast, Poland’s pension funds mostly managed to avoid investing in Wirecard, including the local IN unit.
In an extraordinary and sobering report meant to educate the nation on a growing threat, a new military study warns that an electromagnetic pulse weapon attack such as those developed by North Korea, Russia, and Iran could essentially challenge the United States and displace millions. The report, titled, “Electromagnetic Defense Task Force,” and the product of a mostly classified summit of officials from 40 agencies just outside of Washington earlier this year, is a forceful call for a new focus on preparing for either an enemy EMP attack or a natural hit such as a solar storm.
“An EMP would cause instantaneous and simultaneous loss of many technologies reliant on electrical power and computer circuit boards, such as cell phones and GPS devices.” Meanwhile, access to the 5G-millimeter wave bandwidth will be critical to operations in all war-fighting domains, in particular, space command & control,” said the white paper.
Lt. Gen. Steven Wast, the commander of Air Education and Training Command, said, “As electromagnetic technologies fuse in new and often dangerous ways, it’s critical that the military and industry make honest evaluations of present and future conflict states to ensure we’re proactive rather than reactive.” He also advised for predicting how U.S. foes will try to outsmart any fixes to the electric grid and other targets of an EMP attack.
