    By Jonny Hogg and Nick Tattersall ANKARA/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Frustrated by Western failure to heed his advice in Syria and Iraq and still smarting over the collapse of the Muslim Brotherhood, Turkey's Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu makes no apology for a foreign policy that has left his country isolated. His dream of a Middle East with political Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey at its heart seems to be fading as chaos in Syria and Iraq threatens its borders and diplomatic ties with Egypt, the Arab world's most populous nation, remain broken. ......

    An anonymous reader writes: Contrary to what we were sometimes taught in high school physics, the Earth's gravity is not constant. It actually shows slight variations on different parts of the Earth's surface, and the variations correlate with the density of the material on that surface. The European Space Agency has been measuring gravity for four years, mapping these variations and recording the changes those variations have undergone. Its data indicates "a significant decrease [in gravity] in the region of Antarctica where land ice is melting fastest. Further analysis is, of course, planned so that the whole of Antarctica can be taken into account and "the clearest picture yet of the pace of global warming" can be determined on that continent. ...

    schwit1 writes: Cassini images taken in 2007, 2013, and 2014 of one of Titan's largest hydrocarbon seas find that a mysterious feature there keeps appearing and disappearing. Quoting: "The mysterious feature, which appears bright in radar images against the dark background of the liquid sea, was first spotted during Cassini's July 2013 Titan flyby. Previous observations showed no sign of bright features in that part of Ligeia Mare. Scientists were perplexed to find the feature had vanished when they looked again, over several months, with low-resolution radar and Cassini's infrared imager. This led some team members to suggest it might have been a transient feature. But during Cassini's flyby on August 21, 2014, the feature was again visible, and its appearance had changed during the 11 months since it was last seen. Scientists on the radar team are confident that the feature is not an artifact, or flaw, in their data, which would have been one of the simplest explanations. They also d...

    Science_afficionado writes: At the current rate of discovery, astronomers will have identified more than a million exoplanets by the year 2045. That means, if life is at all common in the Milky Way, astronomers could soon detect it. Realization that the nature of the debate about life on other worlds is about to fundamentally change, lead Vanderbilt astronomer David Weintraub to begin thinking seriously about how people will react to such a discovery. He realized that people's reactions will be heavily influenced by their religious beliefs, so he decided to find out what theologians and leaders from the world's major religions have to say about the matter. The result is a book titled Religions and Extraterrestrial Life, published by Springer this month. He discovered that from Baptists to Buddhists, from Catholics to Mormons, from Islam to the Anglican Communion, religious views on alien life differ widely. ...

    wabrandsma sends this article from New Scientist: Hong Kong's mass protest is networked. Activists are relying on a free app that can send messages without any cellphone connection. Since the pro-democracy protests turned ugly over the weekend, many worry that the Chinese government would block local phone networks. In response, activists have turned to the FireChat app to send supportive messages and share the latest news. On Sunday alone, the app was downloaded more than 100,000 times in Hong Kong, its developers said. FireChat relies on "mesh networking," a technique that allows data to zip directly from one phone to another via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Ordinarily, if two people want to communicate this way, they need to be fairly close together. But as more people join in, the network grows and messages can travel further. Mesh networks can be useful for people who are caught in natural disasters or, like those in Hong Kong, protesting under tricky conditions. FireChat came in handy for...

    Timothy Lord met Joey Hudy at an Intel Dev Forum. Joey is possibly the youngest intern Intel has ever hired, but he's made a big splash in the 'Maker world', so having him around is probably worth it for the PR value alone. Joey is obviously pretty bright -- he's been called one of the 10 smartest kids in the world -- but let's face it: he's had a lot of luck to help him along. Not many high school kids get invited to White House science fairs and demonstrate their air cannons to the president. (Alternate Video Link) ...

    An anonymous reader sends news that the CDC has confirmed the first case of Ebola diagnosed on U.S. soil. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a West African country, where the disease is spreading, and later developed symptoms that suggested Ebola. A blood specimen from the patient was sent to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, a testing process that can take 24 to 48 hours to confirm an Ebola infection — or not. The results came back about 3:32 p.m. In other Ebola news, outbreaks in Nigeria and Senegal appear to be completely contained. ...

    Andy Updegrove writes: The Linux Foundation this morning announced the latest addition to its family of major hosted open source initiatives: the Open Platform for NFV Project (OPNFV). Its mission is to develop and maintain a carrier-grade, integrated, open source reference platform for the telecom industry. Importantly, the thirty-eight founding members include not only cloud and service infrastructure vendors, but telecom service providers, developers and end users as well. The announcement of OPNFV highlights three of the most significant trends in IT: virtualization (the NFV part of the name refers to network function virtualization), moving software and services to the cloud, and collaboratively developing complex open source platforms in order to accelerate deployment of new business models while enabling interoperability across a wide range of products and services. The project is also significant for reflecting a growing recognition that open source projects need to incorporate...

    Protests in Hong Kong continue after tens of thousands of people defied calls for them to dismantle their camps and return home. Demonstrations fanned out to more neighborhoods after police tried to disperse crowds using batons and tear gas early Monday morning. Riot police later withdrew. The pro-democracy protesters are angry at China for limiting their choice in Hong Kong's 2017 leadership elections. Demonstrators used umbrellas to protect themselves from tear gas overnight and to ward off the sweltering sun as they continued their sit-in throughout the day. That gave rise to the movement?s name?The Umbrella Revolution. --Thea Breite (17 photos total)

    At least 130,000 refugees have poured into Turkey over the past three days, escaping an Islamic State offensive in Syria.

    Thank you all for your kind words about Graveyard Quest's ending. We will see a physical release of it eventually, just not this year. Next year. Definitely by next TCAF at least.Friday I announced that I'm starting up a new comic: an adaptation of the original Pinocchio story! It's gonna be good. Starts up on Sept 15th, right after SPX, which I will be at with Topatoco.PATREON! + BACK! + STORE...

    That's all she wrote. Thank you for stayin' with me for the year and a half it took to tell this story. There will definitely be a book collecting just the Graveyard Quest story. Won't be out til next year tho. Gonna let it settle for a bit. In the meantime, Back to the usual nonsense next week! Monday and Friday....

    Tycho: Gotham is just a weird show. One of the problems at the corner of Becoming Decrepit and Being A Creator is that when someone attempts the functionally impossible and fails to accomplish it I’m sorta like, “Well, yeah” but I don’t get too mad.  Understand that I don’t mean “impossible” to mean “can’t be done.”  I have done several things over the course of my incarnation as an Internet Demigod which I would have considered impossible.  I use “impossible” more like a success threshold in a roleplaying…...

    Gabe: I played a lot of games this weekend. I got an early code for the new Smash Bros. on 3DS and had a hard time putting it down. I’ve always enjoyed Smash although I’ve never been especially good at it. I can’t believe how good this portable version looks and plays. I burned through some of the single player content and unlocked five or six new characters. Then I decided to try out the online play. The only people playing right now are in Japan but still my games were incredibly smooth. There’s so much stuff packed into this game that sometimes it can be hard deciding how/what to play.…...

    Tycho: Lust for League of Legends has reached such a boil now that I can hit our voice server virtually any time I want to and get a game going.  Except last night, for some reason.  It was almost midnight by the time anyone popped in, and I was genuinely surprised to hear a voice when they did because I’d forgotten I was even connected.  I am always hoping this will be the night my computer achieves sentience.  Alas. An elite contingent (a capable mid, top, and ADC) had been otherwise occupied.  They were savoring the fruits of this storied Loot Cave in Cosmodrome,…...

    Gabe: We have a really cool PA Presents live stream coming up this Monday. We will be playing Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor! It will be a day before it hits stores and you can watch it all right here on my Twitch channel. Tycho and I will be joined by a few of the developers so they can field questions as we run through a bit of the game. I’ve been looking forward to this one and I’m really excited to check it out. It will happen on Monday the 29th at 2:30 Pacific time right here on my Twitch page. -Gabe out...

    Gabe: As Tycho mentioned yesterday, we are both playing the new Theatrhythm: Curtain Call for 3DS. He lamented the lack of a cooperative multiplayer mode but I have to say the new competitive multi is ridiculously fun. I had been avoiding it because while I enjoy rhythm games, I’m not especially good at them. So the idea of playing against another person was a bit intimidating. I gave it a shot though and once I started I was hooked. You play a Battle Music Sequence (BMS) against another person and you’re trying to get the higher score in order to win. However as you’re playing you can…...

    Tycho: Blizzard cancelled “Titan” apparently, whatever it was; I have faithful crows at practically every level of their organization and I was never able to get much.  Then again, I suppose I never really turned the screws.  I was fine not knowing.  They should have put a timer up!  That always seems to yoke the reptilian substructures of my brain. But they already have an MMO.  Maybe it’s not a Free To Play MMO of the traditional sort, maybe it doesn’t run in a browser; maybe it doesn’t use that fixed width font to communicate its barbed…...

    I decided to do some checking on Matador, which won me over early this year. This proved confusing, briefly, as some legal issues have pushed the isometric mech shooter to be renamed Brigador. I kind of miss the name, but also now it won't get confused with the Pierce Brosnan classic The Matador, so it's probably a win-win.  There's also some straight gameplay below with some funkier tunes. ...

    Ubisoft demoed more than 20 minutes of Assassin's Creed Rogue gameplay at EGX this past weekend, and that's enough to notice the obvious likenesses to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. The naval fights look largely similar, as does the combat system. Even the mini-map has the same icons. Although the core of Rogue seems stripped away from Black Flag, there should be enough to make it seem like a different game. There is the whole "play as a Templar" angle that's certainly fresh. At about the 14-minute mark of this video, protagonist Shay Patrick Cormac intercepts a pigeon that's carrying an assassination contract, which he uses to locate and kill the assassin that it's intended for. Picking off members of the brotherhood will feel so wrong after years of having the tables turned. ...

    We've known for a while that the upcoming Dreamfall game from Red Thread would be split into five chapters but now we have word that the first one, entitled Reborn, will arrive on October 21. I'm hoping that the studio will keep them coming at a steady rate. There's no denying the game looks gorgeous; split between the hard sci-fi of Stark and the magical realm of Arcadia, there's plenty of good-looking locations on show here in this trailer. There's also a lot of cheery Scandinavians looking intently at their computers. Still, I'm really interested to see where series mainstays Zoë and Kian's intertwining stories lead.  ...

    There might not be Minecraft for Wii U, but there is U Craft. Close enough? This is in the works at Nexis Games, the studio behind some games I'm also not familiar with -- do BrickBlast U! or The Dance of the Damned ring any bells? Probably not. At any rate, U Craft will be an eShop-only release this holiday season. It'll use the GamePad for Off-TV play and inventory management / creation tools, which is what you'd expect. Reminds me of the days before Minecraft came to Xbox 360. The system's Indie Games channel was full of derivative sandbox titles and the better ones were able to dominate the sales charts because people were that hungry for a Minecraft-like experience on the console.

    After a brief delay, the Dark Souls II DLC trilogy has come to an end with Crown of the Ivory King. It's available today on Steam and Xbox 360 and tomorrow on PlayStation 3 for $9.99 -- or you can get all three add-ons bundled together for $24.99. I might do that (but wait for a sale). Just looking over the screenshots, this final act seems the most immediately compelling to me -- love those snow-covered landscapes. To that end, I'll need to fight the urge to directly compare it to Dark Souls' Painted World of Ariamis. Such an excellent area. I see Chris already has a draft of his review in our post editor, so expect that to go up this week. ...

    The guy's face in the thumbnail says it all. Microsoft has announced the name of its follow-up to Windows 8 and it's, uh, Windows 10. Yeah, really. The new operating system is meant to run on all sorts of devices -- whether they're touch-controlled or use a mouse and keyboard -- as a singular platform. One product family. "Whether you're building a game or a line of business application, there will be one way to write a universal app that targets the entire family," said Microsoft. "There will be one store, one way for applications to be discovered, purchased and updated across all of these devices." As a Windows 7 user, this looks far more appealing than Windows 8 did, which is something, but change is scary. Nice to see that start menu from day one, though.

    I talked yesterday about how horror games are difficult to demo at a convention; you need to block out so much noise and activity around you to be really immersed in what you're playing. Team Junkfish had no such problems as their upcoming title Monsterum uses the Oculus Rift and once you're wearing that along with some headphones, you can really start to get scared. Monsterum sees the player stuck on an abandoned container ship, desperately trying to find a way to escape. The problem is, a monster is stalking the player and believe me, it's a nerve-racking feeling when you first catch a glimpse of one. The ship where this takes place is procedurally generated and the monster itself will be randomly picked from one of three possible variants. Players will be unarmed but able to set traps in the environment to stun or distract the mo...

    When it comes to fighting games, the entry level skill is usually high, and it requires countless hours of training and understanding mechanics to even become slightly competitive. Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX!!!!! is a re-released fighting game for Vita and PlayStation 3 that helps minimize this entry level gap by having simple, tight controls and easy to execute combos, though the story attached to the game certainly doesnt match the quality of the gameplay....

    Eric from We Got This Covered wrote: Back when Persona 4 Arena was announced in 2011, it seemed like an odd move for both parties involved. For Atlus, it was a drastic shift from the critically acclaimed RPGs they had been known for. The other developer involved with production, Arc System Works, was already juggling two franchises of their own when the project was announced. However, all of the concern over the title was for nothing, as it received solid scores across the board. Now, just two years later, the two have joined forces once again for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, which sits somewhere between full sequel and add-on....

    "City-builders, sadly, seem to be part of a genre that peaked in the 90s and early 2000s, before fading away into the dusty archives of forgotten videogame history. Some of my favourite gaming memories as a kid are of building sprawling cities in the likes of Pharaoh, Stronghold and Caesar. But, along with most strategy games, city-builders seem to have abandoned modern gaming and left us only with their mutated offspring in the form of Farmville, Clash of Clans and Kingdom Rush. There have been some interesting throwbacks to classic city-building lately, such as Banished, Stronghold II and Towns but its been a long time since weve seen something truly unique in the genre; something that pushes the boundaries and expectations of a gameplay style that has become increasingly simplified and formulaic over the years. That is, of course, until Gaslamp Games recent Early Access title Clockwork Empires showed up."...

    At all the big Maker Faires, the Power Racing Series makes an appearance, turning old Power Wheels into race cars that whip around the track at dozens of miles an hour. [Charles] is somewhat famous in the scene – there’s even a clause in the official rules named after him – so of course anything he brings to race day will be amazing. It was. It used a battery pack from a Ford Fusion plugin hybrid, a custom body, and a water cooling unit from a dead Mac G5. A few months ago, we saw [Charles] tear into the … ...

    Pain is a good thing. It tell us to pull our hand away from the stove and to stay off a turned ankle. But we all have different experiences of pain, and chronic pain degrades our quality of life.

With the stepper motor connected up, a TinyG stepper motor controller and [John's] own graphical interface, ChiliPeppr, take care of the rest. The hack is almost cer...

    There are a few ways of playing .WAV files with a microcontroller, but other than that, doing any sort of serious audio processing has required a significantly beefier processor.
