    This is a video of a technician climbing up to the top of a transmission tower to do some maintenance work.

    If a movie is not going to show us something new, it should at least show us something different.

    That was a fun little performance by 5 Seconds of Summer! 5SOS followed up Maroon 5 on Thursday night's People Magazine Awards, and we think they might have sounded just a bit better than the Adam Levine-led band.

    Layzej writes: Prominent scientists, science communicators, and skeptic activists, are calling on the news media to stop using the word "skeptic" when referring to those who refuse to accept the reality of climate change, and instead refer to them by what they really are: science deniers. "Not all individuals who call themselves climate change skeptics are deniers. But virtually all deniers have falsely branded themselves as skeptics. By perpetrating this misnomer, journalists have granted undeserved credibility to those who reject science and scientific inquiry." ...

    HughPickens.com writes The human genome is astonishingly complex and dynamic, with genes constantly turning on or off, depending on what biochemical signals they receive from the body. Scientists have known that certain genes become active or quieter as a result of exercise but they hadn't understood how those genes knew how to respond to exercise. Now the NYT reports that scientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm have completed a study where they recruited 23 young and healthy men and women, brought them to the lab for a series of physical performance and medical tests, including a muscle biopsy, and then asked them to exercise half of their lower bodies for three months. The volunteers pedaled one-legged at a moderate pace for 45 minutes, four times per week for three months. Then the scientists repeated the muscle biopsies and other tests with each volunteer. Not surprisingly, the volunteers' exercised leg was more powerful now than the other, showing that the exercise had...

    SternisheFan notes that Nebraska and Oklahoma are suing Colorado over marijuana legalization. The attorneys general of Nebraska and Oklahoma sued Colorado in the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday, arguing state-legalized marijuana from Colorado is improperly spilling across state lines. The suit invokes the federal government's right to regulate both drugs and interstate commerce, and says Colorado's decision to legalize marijuana has been "particularly burdensome" to police agencies on the other side of the state line. In June, USA TODAY highlighted the flow of marijuana from Colorado into small towns across Nebraska: felony drug arrests in Chappell, Neb., just 7 miles north of the Colorado border have skyrocketed 400% in three years. "In passing and enforcing Amendment 64, the state of Colorado has created a dangerous gap in the federal drug control system enacted by the United States Congress. Marijuana flows from this gap into neighboring states, undermining plaintiff states' own mari...

    astroengine writes NASA's Kepler space telescope has detected its first new extrasolar planet after mission engineers were able to save the mission from a premature death after two of the exoplanet hunter's four stabilizing reaction wheels failed last year. Called "K2," the extended mission arose from an "innovative idea" that appears to have given the prolific telescope a new lease on life. "Last summer, the possibility of a scientifically productive mission for Kepler after its reaction wheel failure in its extended mission was not part of the conversation," said Paul Hertz, NASA's astrophysics division director at the agency's headquarters in Washington D.C. "Today, thanks to an innovative idea and lots of hard work by the NASA and Ball Aerospace team, Kepler may well deliver the first candidates for follow-up study by the James Webb Space Telescope to characterize the atmospheres of distant worlds and search for signatures of life." ...

    sciencehabit writes About 1% of the light that strikes plants is re-emitted as a faint, fluorescent glow—a measure of photosynthetic activity. Today, scientists released a map of this glow as measured by the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2, a NASA satellite launched in July with the goal of mapping the net amount of carbon in the atmosphere. The map reveals that tropical rainforests near the equator are actively sucking up carbon, while the Corn Belt in the eastern United States, near the end of its growing season, is also a sink. Higher resolution fluorescence mapping could one day be used to help assess crop yields and how they respond to drought and heat in a changing climate. ...

    mrspoonsi writes with the findings of an investigation into working conditions at a factory that makes Apple products. Poor treatment of workers in Chinese factories which make Apple products has been discovered by an undercover BBC Panorama investigation. Filming on an iPhone 6 production line showed Apple's promises to protect workers were routinely broken. It found standards on workers' hours, ID cards, dormitories, work meetings and juvenile workers were being breached at the Pegatron factories. Apple said it strongly disagreed with the programme's conclusions. Exhausted workers were filmed falling asleep on their 12-hour shifts at the Pegatron factories on the outskirts of Shanghai. One undercover reporter, working in a factory making parts for Apple computers, had to work 18 days in a row despite repeated requests for a day off. Another reporter, whose longest shift was 16 hours, said: "Every time I got back to the dormitories, I wouldn't want to move. Even if I was hungry I woul...

    An anonymous reader writes Github has announced a security vulnerability and has encouraged users to update their Git clients as soon as possible. The blog post reads in part: "A critical Git security vulnerability has been announced today, affecting all versions of the official Git client and all related software that interacts with Git repositories, including GitHub for Windows and GitHub for Mac. Because this is a client-side only vulnerability, github.com and GitHub Enterprise are not directly affected. The vulnerability concerns Git and Git-compatible clients that access Git repositories in a case-insensitive or case-normalizing filesystem. An attacker can craft a malicious Git tree that will cause Git to overwrite its own .git/config file when cloning or checking out a repository, leading to arbitrary command execution in the client machine. Git clients running on OS X (HFS+) or any version of Microsoft Windows (NTFS, FAT) are exploitable through this vulnerability. Linux clients...

    schnell writes The New York Times Magazine has an in-depth profile of Marissa Mayer's time at the helm of Yahoo!, detailing her bold plans to reinvent the company and spark a Jobs-ian turnaround through building great new products. But some investors are saying that her product focus (to the point of micromanaging) hasn't generated results, and that the company should give up on trying to create the next iPod, merge with AOL to cut costs and focus on the unglamorous core business that it has. Is it time for Yahoo! to "grow up" and set its sights lower? ...

    Most boys of the Pokot tribe in Alale, Kenya, are unable to attend school due to their daily duty of cattle herding and their role as â??warriorsâ? to protect against cattle rustlers of the neighboring Turkana tribe. Dinah Hellen Chebitwey, a 52-year-old early childhood education officer, teaches Pokot boys the game of archery in an attempt to transform their skills into a means of peace-building. Chebitwey hopes to engage her counterpart in Turkana to create a program where boys from two rival communities can compete in the game of archery to deepen exchanges and learn to embrace peace. --By European Pressphoto Agency
    There were more shadows than light at Fenway Park this year. Although the World Champion Red Sox finished dead last this year, nearly 3 million fans watched them play. Because there were few highlights this season we take a last look at the slivers of light, patterns and people that make Fenway a special place. --By Stan Grossfeld

    Seven months on, loved ones of passengers on a missing Malaysian airliner derive what comfort they can going forward from whatâ??s left behind. Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, with 239 mostly Chinese people on board, disappeared on March 8 about an hour into a routine journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in the worldâ??s greatest aviation mystery. More than two dozen countries have been involved in the air, sea and underwater search for the Boeing 777 but months of sorties failed to turn up any trace - even after narrowing the search area to the southern Indian Ocean - long after batteries on the black box voice and data recorders had gone flat.
    All across the world, seasonal fairs are held to celebrate harvest, holidays and trade. People of all ages come out to explore, learn, and catch a thrill on rides.-- By Leanne Burden Seidel (28 photos total)
    The World Health Organization estimates that the Ebola virus has killed more than 3,400 people in West African countries and infected twice as many since the recent outbreak began. The World Bank estimates the economic impact of Ebola will exceed $32 billion by the end of next year. This collection of images shows the effects of the epidemic over the the last month in Africa.--By Lloyd Young

    The millions of tourists who flock to the Eiffel Tower will be treated to a new glass floor, creating a sensation of walking on air nearly 200 feet above ground. The $37.5 million reconstruction is likely to become a prime location for ?selfies,? with the first visitors spending time on the floor turning their phones towards themselves and the glass floor below. --Thea Breite (16 photos total) A bottom view of the new 1st floor of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, October 6, 2014.

    New Comic: Southron Swords, Part Three

    Tycho: It’s fun to sit on ice. The original plan, hazily enunciated, was to have Robert, Mike, and myself all enter the same abattoir and have them done all at once, like what happens when there is a Salon Excursion where ladies might roll deep and nails are buffed to a gleam.  The number of participants is really the only commonality, now that I think of it.  The Venn Diagram is very sparse in the middle; there is only a tiny sliver of conceptual overlap, vanishingly small. Steam removed a Greenlight game for content reasons and then reversed their decision more or less in the…...

    Tycho: “Ripped from the headlines” is what we call a strip that actually deals with our own, real shit.  Technically speaking, even when they’re buried beneath irony and voiced by interlopers, it’s still our shit.  I suppose it depends on the mix of fact and embroidery of said fact.  To mercifully bisect a short story threatening to be a long one, this is about as real as it gets. I’ll tell you all about it on Friday.  It was a thing. I spent a lot of time sitting this weekend sitting on ice and watching The Flash.  One of the things that…...

    Gabe: So uh, the response to today’s comic is a little overwhelming. I had the idea on the way into work and when I got to the office I wrote out the script. Jerry came in as I was furiously typing and asked if I was writing a news post. I told him no, I was writing some fan fiction. He asked if he could see it and I shared the document with him. He tweaked a couple lines but he essentially left it as is, which made me feel pretty fucking good. We sat down to write a strip for today and he suggested Gabe writing fan fiction might be a funny comic. I asked if he would be okay with me just…...

    Tycho: When the DLC came out for Destiny, something about it being Dark, Grob-Grob willingly fed himself back into the machine.  Imagine my surprise when I open up a mail from him yesterday morning and it contains - steady yourselves, friends - a bundle of fan-fiction. These are vital junctures, and they need to be played correctly.  When he started his D&D phase, I could have tried manning the gate and making sure I established a pecking order - that’s the urge we make fun of in the many D&D strips we’ve done.  I could have made it like one of those Japanese…...

    We already knew a bit about the upcoming Deception IV: Another Princess expansion, including the addition of new traps, a new protagonist, and a quest mode, but seeing it in action is something else entirely. In addition to new screens showing off the heroine Valgyrie, there's also a tease with the main character (which seems to be Laegrinna dressed in Deception II garb), a few of the new traps (toilet trap is the highlight), and the quest mode menu. A localization can't come soon enough. Deception IV [AGB] ...

    [Update: Toys "R" Us put pre-orders back up momentarily this morning, and I expect them to either be faulty or to drop very soon. Try to re-pre-order if you want at your own risk!] The day the Lucario amiibo went on sale, I pre-ordered it. As in, weeks ago. Now Toys "R" Us is canceling orders, including mine. For reference, Lucario is exclusive to Toys "R" Us and you can't get it anywhere else. Huh? I'm not alone it seems, as our own Brittany Vincent and Bill Platt have had their orders canceled too, as well as a number of readers out there who reach out last night. We are following up with both Nintendo and Toys "R" Us to see what the deal is. It's entirely possible that the latter wants people running into the store at the release date and buying add-on items. That's retail for you. Between this, ...

    [Dtoid community member TheDustinThomas shares the story of how video games helped him cope with the loss of his best friend. This made me ache a bit and wish I could see Isabelle again. Want to see your own stuff appear on the front page? Go write something! --Occams Electric Toothbrush] I've never used videogames as a way to escape from the realities of life, I don't find that to be a healthy way of dealing with things, at least it isn't for me. I don't like to push things under the rug and pretend like they didn't happen, I instead choose to use videogames as a way to cope with loss, rather than to escape from it. I understand why some people would choose to do it this way, because I have friends and family that do, it's just not my style. Videogames and writing are the things that have always helped me to make peace w...

    It's a shame when companies delist digital-only games but it's even worse when they don't give a heads up. Capcom had the courtesy to let us know that Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is coming off PlayStation Network on December 23, 2014 and Xbox Live Arcade on December 31, 2014. Not much time left, then. Origins is a two-game compilation from Iron Galaxy Studios featuring Marvel Super Heroes (Infinity Gems!) and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes.

    Frostivus is not coming this year, but that doesn't mean Dota 2 goes stale! While there may not be a big gameplay event, we've got some big gameplay changes taking place. Lifestealer takes a lot of the focus in this update with his reworked Ultimate ability. Now, when Lifestealer uses Infest in a creep, he can take control of that creep and use its abilities! This adds a lot of dimension and makes Lifestealer much more appealing to me.  Many characters received buffs this time around, which is generally how IceFrog, the creator, like to even things out. Bounty Hunter's Track ability is now way more effective, Enchantress is now as fast as a race car. Io now turns like a floating orb (no turn time!). Not everyone was so lucky, though. Ogre Magi, for example, got ran over by the nerf truck, with hi...

Truth be told I’ve been suffering from writers block on how to follow up my last piece. Every good idea seemed so stupid after an hour or two, and try as I might I couldn’t think of something to put a new spin on. So rather than investigate something, poke fun at something, or give graphic descriptions of sex acts, I’m going to tell you a little story from my life regarding gaming…no more, no less. ...

    The fine folks at Vblank Entertainment (Brian Provinciano to be exact) want to give one lucky Destructoid community member a limited edition copy of Retro City Rampage DX for the PS4.

    Earlier this year, Fresh3D tried and failed to fund a high-definition remake of the 1999 action-adventure title Outcast on Kickstarter. Fans showed their support, but there simply weren't enough of them. The company is back with a roadmap that will "hopefully" lead to an eventual reboot. Step one of that plan, Outcast 1.1, is available now on Steam and GOG.com for $5.99. It's a new version of the game "improved to run smoothly on today's computers." Specifically, there's: Multithreaded voxel renderer for higher performance Software bilinear filtering on polygonal meshes Partial redesigned of the HUD to match higher resolutions New high-resolution sky paintings Revam...

    iam8bit has opened pre-orders for the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Collector's Edition Vinyl ahead of its first quarter 2015 ship date. (Is that when the game is releasing? Hope so!)

    EGMR writes: "The WWE franchise is one that I, quite ashamedly, poured a lot of time into during the SmackDown! vs. RAW era of wrestling games, and prior to that, when it was still called the WWF. Despite them being incredibly corny, they felt surprising solid for PlayStation and PlayStation 2 titles, and were a reasonable amount of fun to play. Since last generation, however, these games have faded somewhat into obscurity, amongst THQs demise and 2Ks eventual acquisition of the series in 2013. After WWE 2K14 was a passable but unimpressive title for 2Ks first outing, retaining the services of developer Yukes, WWE 2K15 may actually be a step back for the series."...

    Critically Sane: "When video games are content to provide us with overblown power fantasies about the glory and bombast of fighting for what is right and true, here is a game that says that actually, war is really crappy. War destroys lives and kills dreams. That maybe were all becoming a little too desensitised to the violence on our screens. It is a game about living in the moment, and living with the consequences of your actions. This War of Mine is a very good game in and of itself. More than that, it is an important video game. One that needed to be made."...

    According to a couple of news outlets this week, all of those rumors that have been flying around about Dishonored 2 could prove to be true. The second installment to the game series is expected to be revealed at Gamescon 2014. The game is expected to be released in the next year and when it is, will be compatible with the PC, Xbox One and PS4. This is not the first time that the rumors were almost confirmed. Bethesda has been giving subtle hints about the second game in the series here and there, so if you have been paying attention you would have caught that....

    1080p: With the out of the gate initial success of the Amiibo figures, we discuss some possible ways Nintendo can expand on their use in order to ensure their continued success

    Something that many younger gamers may not realize is that the 7th generation consoles (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii) went on for far longer than any console cycle before it. A typical console cycle is about four to five years. What made the last one so long? Well, that is a very broad topic. Part of it was the economic crash of 2008, with every major corporation being hit and not willing to take risks. The other part is the rise of the Indie gaming scene and the ways it was being shown that great stories could be told without the latest high-def graphics. Thinking minds were expanding gaming, and things just got very complicated....

It also provides a front-end renderer for the forms, client-side validation, serialization to json and background refresh support....

    Did you ever have to go back to a fragment of code that you wrote a month or year ago? How did it feel? Was it easy or did you have to figure out how it worked from scratch? If you need more than just one look, there is a good chance that you are doing something wrong. And if you scratch you head an think: “What the heck was I thinking?”, you have definitely done it wrong....

    This post is an example about an application where the first solution to each and every IT problem – “have you tried turning it off and on again” – can actually do more harm than good. Instead, we have an application that can literally heal itself: it fails at the beginning, but starts running smoothly after some time....

    If you are responsible for a datacenter and in charge of buying hardware you do care that the equipment is used properly and not just idling. However, unlike your house where you both provide efficiency and use the facilities, datacenter owners are rarely users of their own devices. With time services became more and more specialized and a new generation of IT administrators developed whose main job was to provide good operational support for computing facilities but not actually use them. So a new term appeared, application owners, people who run applications using data centers as some kind of a service....

    I want to be able to change the code of my game dynamicly. For example lets say my game is structured this way: class GameState { public int SomeData; public Entity[] EntityPool; } interface IServices { IRenderer Renderer { get; } } interface IGameCode { void RenderAndUpdate(GameState currentState, IServices serviceProvider); } I now want be able to write code like this: void MainLoop() { IGameCode gameCode = new DefaultGameCode(); while(true) { // Handle Plattform things if(shouldUseNewGameCode) { UnloadCode(gameCode); gameCode = LoadCode("new.dll"); // or gameCode = LoadCode("new.cs"); } // Call GameTick gameCode.RenderAndUpdate(gameState, services); } } I already used AppDomains and a Proxyclass but it is too slow to serialize every frame.

    I am trying to return the number of results found on my page above an html table. I am using an mvc framework for the first time so it's very new to me how the process works.

List<DateTime> dateTimeList = null; if(_dataSeriesList[0].GetType().Name == "Class1") { dateTimeList = _dataSeriesList.ConvertAll(x => (Class1) x) .Where(d => d.Time >= min && d.Time <= max) .OrderBy(t => t.Time) .Select(d => d.Time) .ToList(); } else if(_dataSeriesList[0].GetType().Name == "Class2") { dateTimeList = _dataSeriesList.ConvertAll(x => (Class2) x) .Where(d => d.Time >= min && d.Time <= max) .OrderBy(t => t.Time) .Select(d => d.Time) .ToList(); } . . and so on I tried using the following code: ...

    This question already has an answer here: Why not use exceptions as regular flow of control? 24 answers When working with objects you're not sure are null or not, what is the best practice? object o = SomeMethodReturningAnObjectOrNull(); Is it better to check o like this: if (o != null) { //do something usefull } Or to make a try catch: try { //do something usefull } catch (NullReferenceException) { } If it depends on the situation, what is the advantage of one or the other?...

    During the summers [Doug] has been building a 75 foot sailing junk to be launched from America’s most inland port. When Oklahoma’s winter hits he heads indoors to work on an ROV that will prowl 3,000 feet below the surface. Originally building a piloted submarine, he grew bored and decided to use the sailboat as a carrier for his fleet of remote submersibles instead. A consummate amateur, Doug is the first to admit how little he knows about anything and how much he enjoys the open source spirit: collaboration, cooperation and learning from others. Determination and hard work fills in …read more...

    And now for something completely different: [Becky Stern]’s musical tour of her favorite tools around the Adafruit factory is the best holiday tune we’ve heard since The Waitresses’ “Christmas Wrapping”. Of course, good tools are near and dear to us as well, and we found ourselves nodding frequently in agreement and smiling as broadly as [Billie, Ruby, and Gus], the anthropomorphic LED backup singers. In other Adafruity news, it looks like their new Samsung SM482 pick and place machine was given the gift of eyes as big as pizza pies. What tools would you like to see under the tree, …read more...

    Batteries flat and no cellphone coverage and you need to communicate hundreds of miles?  No problem. [Peter Parker VK3YE] has created a wind-up ham radio transmitter built into a discount store crank-handle flashlight (or torch). No batteries – all power comes from you turning the hand crank. This design was inspired by the ‘Gibson Girl’ emergency beacon transmitter used during Second World War. But what used to be an very large, full body cranking box is now tiny and simple to crank. Let’s take a look at he video and the build details after the break. With a simple wire …read more...

    Whilst the original Sting glowed blue as a defensive alert, Spark’s “WarSting” is all about aggression. The project hacks a toy Hobbit sword and teaches it to glow blue when vulnerable WiFi is detected. Once alerted, combat ensues. If its bearer slashes, the sword will battle the helpless network, swinging and clanging until it acquires an IP from the defeated DHCP server. Once conquered, the sword publishes a “Vanquished” message to Spark’s cloud, teaching the sword to ignore it from thenceforth. While “wardriving” has not really been a thing since the first Lord of the Rings movie came out, the …read more...

    Many of us have gone on a stationary romp through some virtual or augmented scape with one of the few headsets out in the wild today. While the experience of viewing a convincing figment of reality is an exciting sensation in itself, [Mark Lee] and [Kevin Wang] are figuring out how to tie other senses into the mix. The duo from Cornell University have built a mechanical exoskeleton that responds to light with haptic feedback. This means the wearer can touch the sphere of light around a source as if it were a solid object. Photo resistors are mounted like …read more...

    Imagine a camera that took encrypted pictures. If your camera is stolen, the only thing on the memory card would be random data that can only be unlocked with a key. If you hire a photographer, those images cannot be copied without the key. At the very least, it’s an interesting idea made impressive because this actually exists. [Doug] recently got his hands on a Samsung NX300, a nice camera for the price that conveniently runs Linux and is kinda open-sourced by Samsung. With special firmware, [Doug] created public/private key encryption for this camera, giving only the person with the …read more...

    Over in Russia there are a few people doing extremely in-depth technical teardowns, and the latest is one of the most ambitious ever seen. The PSXDEV team is tearing into the heart of the original PlayStation (Google translatrix), looking at 300,000 transistors, and re-implementing the entire console in a logic level simulator. While the CPU in the PSX is unique to that specific piece of hardware, a lot of this custom silicon can be found in other places. The core – a RISC LSI LR33300 – is documented in a few rare tomes that are somehow available for free on …read more...

    Animenewsnetwork - Hallelujah! Wolf Girl & Black Prince episode 11 surprises with Kyoya explicitly stating he has no tragic backstory, despite the series flashing back to an image of his dejected younger self in the snow whenever he thinks too hard about trusting people. (Perhaps he's denying the truth, after all.) Instead, we're given insight into what might have made him such a bully:...
