Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic Review - The Gamers Lounge

Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic by developer Bitfather is a turn-based action game that reminds me of a mix between the original Dragon Warrior and Oregon Trail. It succeeds in satisfying nostalgic yearnings but still leaves a few things to be desired.

[In Depth] In search for unseen matter, physicists turn to dark sector

Added: 26.03.2017 8:26 | 0 views | 0 comments

Scientists hunting unseen dark matter are looking deeper into the shadows. With searches for a favored dark matter candidate—weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs)—coming up empty, physicists are now turning to the hypothetical "dark sector": an entire shadow realm of hidden particles. This week, physicists will meet at the University of Maryland in College Park for a workshop, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), to mull ideas for a possible $10 million short-term experiment that would complement the agency's current WIMP search and other dark-matter efforts. And many researchers believe DOE should focus on the dark sector. Whereas WIMPs would be a single massive particle tacked onto the standard model of known particles, the dark sector would consist of a slew of lighter particles and forces—such as a dark version of electromagnetism—with tenuous connections to known particles. To spot dark-sector particles, physicists will have to rethink their detection techniques, but the new experiment could be small and cheap, physicists say. Still, DOE officials warn that the $10 million isn't a sure thing. Author: Adrian Cho

[Feature] Fishy business

Added: 26.03.2017 8:26 | 0 views | 0 comments

Two Swedish fish researchers, with the aid of five colleagues elsewhere in the world, have alleged fraud in a study on the effects of microplastics on larval fish published in Science by two scientists at Uppsala University (UU) in June 2016. The study supposedly took place at the Ar Research Station in Gotland, but the whistleblowers say it never happened, based on eyewitness testimony and other evidence. A preliminary investigation by UU dismissed the claims in August 2016; a second investigation, by an expert panel at Sweden's Central Ethical Review Board, is still ongoing. An expert hired by that panel filed a more damning report last February that raised the possibility of fraud. Now, both sides are awaiting the expert panel's final verdict, which may influence an ongoing debate about how Swedish institutions investigate research misconduct. Author: Martin Enserink

[Perspective] From chaos to order in active fluids

Added: 26.03.2017 8:26 | 0 views | 0 comments

There are few sights more spectacular than the swarming of a school of fish or a flock of birds that suddenly gives way to a directional motion. Arguably, our admiration is rooted in the surprise that individual organisms, capable of self-propulsion on their own, organize to move en masse in a coherent fashion. Coherent motion is common in a large class of biological and synthetic materials that are often referred to as active matter. Such materials consist of particles immersed in a fluid that can extract energy from their surroundings (or internal fuel) and convert it into directed motion. Living organisms, biological tissues, rods on a vibrated plate, and self-phoretic colloids are just a few examples (1). Similar to schools of fish and flocks of birds, active matter often exhibits random swarming motion (2–5) that until now was impossible to control or use. On page 1284 of this issue, Wu et al. (6) demonstrate that an active fluid can be manipulated to flow in a particular direction without any external stimuli by confining it in microchannels. Author: Alexander Morozov

Emma Roberts Terrified by Movie Script

Added: 26.03.2017 8:16 | 3 views | 0 comments

Emma Roberts felt so terrified reading the script for her latest movie that she felt she had no choice but to sign up.
The 26-year-old actress agreed to star in 'The Blackcoat's Daughter' after the script scared her terribly and still had an effect on her a few hours later.
She said: "This movie is definitely actually terrifying, whereas 'Scream Queens' is more fun scary. This is definitely a psychological thriller.
"When I read the script I knew I had to do the movie because it literally kept me up that night and I kept getting really scared, more so after I read it, like, a few hours later. It stuck with me, which is how you know it's really gonna be scary."
However, the 'Scream Queens' star insists scary movies aren't scary to film and admitted her pals make fun of her as she hates watching scary films herself but still stars in many.
She added: "I get so scared so easily, so it's kinda funny that I'm always involved in scary stuff. It's never scary when you're making anything scary, like, I was never scared on 'Scream Queens', or 'American Horror Story', or 'The Blackcoat's Daughter', but then watching it, you get scared ...
"My friends make fun of me, they're like, 'You were in the movie, why are you covering your eyes while you're watching yourself?' I think the cast are the most in the dark because you're doing it, but you don't get to see it, so it's always a nice surprise seeing everything put together. You're like, 'Oh, it worked!'"
However, Emma's younger sister Grace, 16, was unable to give her verdict on the movie as she found it too scary and had to walk out of the screening at the premiere.
Speaking on The Today Show, Emma shared: "My little sister ... was at the premiere last night and she actually had to leave the movie because she got so scared! So that's how scary it is but in a good way. I mean, it's fun to be scared sometimes."

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West Attend Self Help Seminar

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West attended a self-help seminar, which has been designed to set people free from fear.
The couple - who share North, three, and Saint, 15 months - were seen at the Unleash The Power Within seminar, run by Tony Robbins, alongside Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian and their mother Kris Jenner.
The group splashed out on the Diamond Premiere VIP pack, giving them front row seats to Tony's inspiring talks.
Taking to Instagram, Kris shared a video of the day, captioning it: "So this happened today!!! Thank you @tonyrobbins for the amazing day today!! You are truly so remarkable and my family and I appreciate you so very much. #lifechanging #gamechanger #bestdayever #tonyrobbins #bestenergy (sic)"
Kim and Kanye have had a tough time of it recently after the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last October and the 'Only One' rapper was hospitalised with exhaustion a couple of months later.
And Kim is understandably still shaken by all that happened in Paris as she admitted reliving it all is still "very tough" for her.
Referring to the recent episode of her E! reality show where she opened up about the robbery, she said: "Tonight's episode is going to be very tough for me. However, I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted. I have always shared so much & I'm not going to hold back when this was probably one of the most life changing experiences for me.
"I would never wish this experience upon anyone, but have learned some valuable lessons &feel so blessed to be safe home w my babies & husband. To my friends, family, and loved ones I can't thank you enough for being there when I needed you the most. To the French police, thank you for your incredible hard work (sic)."

John Mayer Misses Katy Perry

John Mayer misses Katy Perry.
The 39-year-old singer/songwriter was in an on/off relationship with the 'Chained to the Rhythm' hitmaker for around 18 months until early 2014 and admitted his new single, 'Still Feel Like Your Man', was written about the blond beauty.
He said: "Who else would I be thinking about? And by the way, it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it's like, give me this, people."
Lyrics to the track include: "Still like the letters in your name and how they feel, babe / Still think I'm never gonna find another you / Still like to leave the party early and go home, babe / And don't you know, babe / I'd rather sit here on my own and be alone, babe."
And John admitted his break-up from the 32-year-old singer inspired some other tracks on his new album 'The Search for Everything', but he also wrote other songs that are more "profound".
He told the New York Times newspaper: "There were times when tears came out of me, and I went, OK, John, this is not about an on-again, off-again relationship. This is something more profound."
The 'Gravity' hitmaker - who turns 40 in October - is ready to settle down and wants to have children.
He admitted: "I wish there was somebody to throw me the 40th.
"I want the baby with the protective earphones [by the side of the stage].
"I'm right on time for my career, and I'm running late for my life."
However, with failed romances with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift behind him, John knows he has a reputation as a womaniser to shake off.
He said: "I've inherited a younger man's reputation. You can even break 'bad boy' into good bad boy and bad bad boy -- I somehow managed to become a bad version of a bad boy."
But the 'Your Body is a Wonderland' singer does use an exclusive dating app, though he insists he never meets anyone.
He said: "It's just lot of chatter. We all talk to the same people. There are very few people actually meeting up."
