StarCraft II Starter Edition offers online freetoplay sample for all

September 21, 2019

first_imgBlizzard has announced the availability of StarCraft II Starter Edition, a trial version of the hit RTS title that features free online multiplayer features and no time restriction. This preview of the game allows players to learn the basics of Terran play and then join their full-version friends online on standard and custom multiplayer games.Players will get to play a total of five missions from the earliest parts of the Wings of Liberty campaign: the first three levels on Mar Sara plus a choice between the first Dr. Hanson or first Tychus Findlay missions.  There are also two Challenge Missions available for players who want to work up their micro skills. Within this content, players can earn achievements that are then transferable to the full version of the game, should they buy it.The real good stuff comes in multiplayer, however. Starter Edition players can play custom matches with anyone on Battle.net, including those owning the full version of SC2. Players will have access to four multiplayer maps (Xel’Naga Caverns, Shattered Temple, Discord IV, and High Orbit), with a fifth (StarJeweled) coming soon. Blizzard has opened the possibility that maps will be rotated in and out of the Starter Edition. These maps will be marked with a sign for all players for ease of creating games with friends who are new to the game. Starter Edition friends will be able to create matches and invite their friends.This being a free version meant to pull in new customers, there are some limitations. The biggest is that players can only play as Terran, with Zerg or Protoss remaining completely unavailable. Aside from the single race and the aforementioned short map lists, SE players won’t get access to online matchmaking, Battle.net chat rooms, or parties. While players will be able to tinker in the Map Editor if they wish, they won’t be able to test or publish the maps on Battle.net.However, there are some nice features that SE players can check out. The trial can show replays from any version of the game, and players can also check out friends’ profiles, ladder stats and achievements online.Players can check out Starter Edition right now using their existing Battle.net accounts (or creating new ones for free). Under Account Management, StarCraft II Starter Edition will be an available download.via Battle.netBlake’s OpinionVery smart, Blizzard. Everyone likes when you release a more fully-featured demo. You’re also more likely to convert more demo players into paying customers. Win-win! But even better, you’ve clearly put some thought into how this demo should go about convincing those new players to buy the game.One detail in particular – the restriction of multiplayer matches to custom games – pretty much says it all. Custom games only allow players to play with their friends and effectively block out anonymous players. Starter Edition buddies will get better guidance in the game through talking to friends in matches. What’s more, they’ll get encouragement instead of discouragement by having fun with their friends instead of even getting the chance to be turned off the game by getting stomped in anonymous laddering.This free online sample begins to make SC2 look a bit more like MMO games that have successfully made the conversion to free-to-play, like Dungeons and Dragons Online or Lord of the Rings Online. I’m not suggesting that SC2 is going to start requiring a subscription anytime soon – in fact, quite the opposite. This move, combined with the recent revelation that Diablo III will allow real-money trading, shows that Blizzard is ready to be innovative with matters of money.That’s good for us players and good for your business, Blizzard. Win-win again.last_img read more

Subramanian Swamy slams Mufti for demanding stoning of Bandipora rapist under Shariah

September 5, 2019

first_imgIANSFormer J&K chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President, Mehbooba Mufti, has called for stoning the rapist of a three-year-old girl from Bandipora, North Kashmir. The horrific rape incident has put Kashmir on the edge with a spontaneous shutdown being observed in the Valley.  Various Islamic religous organisations have also backed Mehbooba’s demand for invoking Shariah (Islamic rule) in the Bandipora rape case and the public stoning of the culprit, who is said to be Tahir Ashraf Mir, a neighbour of the minor victim.”Mortified to hear about the rape of a 3 yr old girl in Sumbal. What kind of a sick pervert would do this?Society often blames women for inviting unwanted attention but what was this child’s fault?Times like these, Shariah law seems apt so that such paedophiles are stoned to death,” she tweeted.Meanwhile, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy criticised Mehbooba Mufti for pronouncing the judgement of the Bandipora rape case through Shariah laws as “absolutely ridiculous”. “The whole nation supports the brave educated Kashmir Valley women who came out in the streets to protest against most disgusting horrific rape of a 3 year girl. For Mehbooba to suggest that Sharia Courts should adjudicate is ridiculous,” Swamy tweeted. (Representational Image)Creative CommonsThe three-year-old girl was abducted and raped by the 20-year-old neighbour in a small village of Bandipora when a majority of the people were busy breaking the fast in the evening. The victim was taken by the rapist, who is said to be a serial paedophile, to a public bathroom where he reportedly raped her. The father of the victim was looking for her and found her bleeding. He took her to the hospital and handed over the rapist to the local police.In the meantime, a letter issued by a local organisation, Islamic Education Trust, certifying that the rape accused is a minor drew widespread condemnation from every corner of the state. The demands of hanging the rapist  and the case be fastracked have also intensified in the Valley.The rising incidence of rape in Muslim dominated Kashmir region over the course of the last few months have raised concern among the rights activists. Among the horrific cases of rape that emerged in the last few months was a case of a father raping his daughter. “Although the valley is marred by violence and conflict, women here were relatively safe compared to other parts of the country. However, this scenario is fast changing and seemingly women are not even safe inside their homes. We have only one police station which pertains to the crimes related to women in the entire valley. There are no special courts mandated for such cases still, which needs to change,” Mehr-ul-Nissa, an activist based in Srinagar said.last_img read more

Instagram Launches LongForm Video Service Called IGTV

first_imgInstagram unveiled IGTV, a new service for long-form videos from professional Instagram creators, at an event in San Francisco Wednesday morning. IGTV will live both within the main Instagram app, as well as via a dedicated app for iOS and Android. “It’s mobile first, it’s simple and it’s high quality,” said Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom.Systrom positioned IGTV as Instagram’s answer to shifting entertainment consumption habits. “Teens may be watching less TV, but they are watching more creators online,” he said.At its heart, IGTV will be both a hub within the existing Instagram app, as well as a new dedicated app that will allow users to watch IGTV videos. These are basically vertical videos produced by some of Instagram’s top creators, and curated based on past viewing behavior of Instagram’s users. Popular on Variety Systrom revealed Tuesday that Instagram now has more than 1 billion monthly users. The service hadn’t shared any user numbers since September of last year, when it surpassed 800 million monthly active users as well as 500 million daily active users.The move to bring more professionally created video to Instagram’s 1 billion users comes as Facebook is also doubling down on Watch, its very own YouTube competitor within the core Facebook app. This week, Facebook announced a series of interactive shows that feature polls, quizzes, and more. On Tuesday, Facebook held its very first Creator Day in Los Angeles ahead of Vidcon, which is starting in Southern California later this week. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses. Rapunzel, Mulan, Ariel,Tiana, Sleeping Beauty and Jasmine all got some love from the Disney stars.More VideosVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpJennifer Lopez Shares How She Became a Mogul04:350.5x1x1.25×1.5x2xLive00:0002:1502:15 At launch, IGTV will not feature any ads, and the company doesn’t yet have any revenue share agreements with creators in place. “Right now, we are focused on building engagement,” Systrom said during a Q&A with press following the announcement.However, he said that Instagram ultimately wanted to allow creators to make a living on the service. “This is obviously a very reasonable place to end up,” he said about revenue sharing.Instagram partnered with a number of creators to pre-populate the service with content, and executives said Wednesday that brands and media organizations would be invited to participate as well. However, Systrom said that the service had no plans to fund original content “for the foreseeable future.”Instagram had invited a number of creators to its event, including Lele Pons, who has 25 million followers on the platform, as well as beauty vlogger Manny Gutierrez and video game streamer Ninja. Both Gutierrez and Ninja hadn’t produced any videos for IGTV yet, and were still trying to figure out how to best use the new platform. Ninja said that he was a bit concerned about making the vertical video format work for video game clips, and mused that he might do more personal, video blog-style clips.Gutierrez stressed in an interview with Variety at the sidelines of the event that it was essential for Instagram to give creators a way to make money with IGTV, especially because of the added work the new format required. “Monetization is definitely going to need to roll out,” he said. “Creating longer content definitely takes a lot of work.”Ninja echoed that sentiment, but was also optimistic about the general effect IGTV will have on the video creator community. Added competition to YouTube would ultimately result in better deals for creators, he argued. “The more the better. For sure.”The Facebook-owned video service also announced that it will give users the ability to upload videos of up to 10 minutes in length. Select creators will be able to upload videos of up to an hour. Instagram is also allowing anyone to create their own IGTV channel. Previously, Instagram limited uploaded videos to 60 seconds, and capped Stories at 15 seconds. Live-streams were limited to one hour.last_img read more

Despite server issues SimCity already has over 38 million buildings

September 1, 2019

first_imgEA is continuing to wrestle with server issues and frustrated gamers attempting to play the newly released and always-connected SimCity. But a post on the SimCity forums by developer Maxis has promised things will get better very soon.Maxis has stated it is upset by what has happened during the first few days of the game’s launch due to there being too much demand for the servers EA allocated for the game. But the situation has been made worse because of a number of unexpected server architecture problems. This is why bugs such as save games being reverted back to earlier versions are probably occurring.The solution is to add a lot more servers, which is happening over the next couple of days. Maxis is also fixing bugs as they get reported, with several major updates already deployed. If the additional servers come online, then hopefully the game will be a lot more stable before Saturday is over.With all the problems you’d think nobody was playing the game, but that’s not the case according to the stats Maxis is collecting. Taking a single 24 hour period of game time, players managed to create over 38 million buildings, 7.5km of roads, and started 18 million fires. What’s a little worrying is they also know that 40 million pipes full of “poop” exist in the world.Regardless of how impressive those stats are, you do have to wonder how much higher they could have been if the launch had been provisioned properly. Hopefully by this time next week thousands more gamers will be building and burning things without having to wait 30 minutes to do so.last_img read more

Rhyming with a reason let the reason be love

A pen is mightier than the sword, and who would agree more than Amit Dahiyabadshah, ideator of the movement called Delhi Poetree Association which encourages and nurtures all budding poets across different walks of life.‘DelhiPoetree is a movement with three measurable objectives apart from the love for poetry- First to promote the hosting of 30 poetry readings across the National Capital region of Delhi every month. Second, to honour 100 contemporary poets as the living treasure of Delhi and to obtain this honour from the government, society at large and the local community of the poet including his/her neighbourhood and to facilitate 100 poets to earn a taxable income from poetry alone by the year 2018,’ says Amit. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Divided into two major parts called Dilli Kavita Kumbh and The Thousand Poets Reading, the association believes that poetry can save society and revive the sense of community.‘Many people mistakenly call Delhi Poetree a club or a group. It isn’t some society, it’s a movement aimed to bring about a revolution through words and not blood,’ he adds.Speaking about its reach, Delhi Poetree is widely recognised and respected as the most active poetry movement now. Its regular well organised readings feature poets in the age groups 6 to 93 and so does its audience that gathers regularly to witness a wide range of poetry for all age groups. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixDelhi Poetree has featured over 1300 poets in the last 9 years since its advent in 2003 and is touted as the biggest poetry event of its kind now.‘We are looking for original talent in the city. Everyone is welcome to visit and read out their poetry. Refine the crude and rootless population of the city, identify and edify their latent poetic talent and, finally, help them get published and sold. Besides the fact that there is no other open platform for original poetry in Delhi, the Poetree also brings together enthusiasts and gives everyone a chance to shine,’ Dahiyabadshah says. Agrees Manu Sharma, a regular at such events: ‘Poetry is the next big thing and forums like these give a platform for like minded people to reconnect and share their thoughts.’‘I narrated a self creation titled ‘Suno Krantiveer’ which was a satire on three most well known aspects of life which are abused the most- love, religion and revolution.Today everyone wishes to revolutionise the world, be it the Kejriwals or the Moists. But deep down no one really cares for the universal good rather have their own vested interests mostly about aquiring power. My poetry intends to aware people and educate rather than titillate,’ Manu signs off. read more

Protect Your eBay Business from Audits

August 30, 2019

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 5 min read October 10, 2006 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. I’m not going to waste this column space telling you to shred your old paperwork, clear up your shipping area or, better yet, get your inventory organized so it’s no longer the hellacious mess it became soon after you started your eBay business. What I am going to tell you about are your government responsibilities.When you have a small business, Uncle Sam and his state affiliate cousins knock at your door on a regular basis. Filing all your forms and paying your taxes correctly and on time will hopefully keep you off of the master audit list. But even more important is keeping good records for your business. When you keep your books current, filling out your tax forms takes a lot less time–and if you do get audited, you’ll have everything at the ready.Beyond keeping track of your gross sales and expenses for your end-of-year returns, there are a few other state-mandated responsibilities you need to take seriously: your state sales tax (if applicable), employee data recording and your quarterly payroll taxes.State Sales TaxFirst, know that you only have to charge sales tax if you’re selling to a customer in the same state your business is located in and if your state has a sales tax to begin with. If you don’t have to bother with this, consider yourself lucky. Otherwise, there’s a simple step you can take to ease the burden.My primary recommendation is that you keep the sales tax you collect in a separate bank account so the money’s available when the time comes to send it in. The seller who collects sales tax gets another bonus–the tax ID number issued by the state is also usually a reseller or sales permit. This number will magically open the doors to buying wholesale merchandise to sell on eBay.Since the state sales tax issue varies so much by state and I can’t outline it all in detail here, check your state’s official website to get more information.Employee DataMany small eBay sellers may only have one or two employees–others may have 15. In either case, the drill’s the same. You can run your business with your own Social Security number, but once you get employees, you need to get an Employer Identification Number.To obtain an EIN, call the IRS Business & Specialty Tax Line at (800) 829-4933. An IRS representative will take your information and assign you a number over the phone. Or if you’re the online type (and what eBay seller isn’t?), you can go to https://sa.www4.irs.gov/sa_vign/newFormSS4.do to access the application, IRS Form SS-4. You’ll get your EIN as soon as your online form is successfully submitted.When hiring a new employee, you must get their Social Security number and have them fill out a W-4 form to indicate the number of deductions to take from their paycheck. When you get an employee’s Social Security number, it’s always a good idea to go to Social Security Business Services Online to confirm that the number is valid.Another important piece of paperwork to fill out is Form I-9. The Immigration Reform and Control Act requires employers to have their employees fill out this form to confirm that they’re legally eligible to work in the U.S. A new employee must show you their Social Security or Green Card to confirm their eligibility–and you should make a copy of it. You don’t file this form with the government, but you must keep it on file for three years after the hire or for one year after the employee is terminated. You can find out more about Form I-9 at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration website.Automating TaxesYou don’t want to make mistakes on your taxes, so using a program such as QuickBooks, and subscribing to their payroll updates, will give you all you need to keep up with the frequent changes to the U.S. tax code. For instance, I can automatically fill out and print my quarterly federal payroll reports (Form 941) right out of QuickBooks–the program calculates everything based on my posted payroll. Also, the program’s sales tax report takes all the pain out of filing that form. You can generate a report that includes all the pertinent data you need for any period of time selected.Forgetting the part Uncle Sam plays in your business can be an expensive mistake. Penalties add up quickly, and, not surprisingly, the government rarely accepts “I didn’t know” as a legitimate excuse.Editor’s Note: The information in this column is provided by the author, not Entrepreneur.com.

Then, display options in the interface that opens to switch to another item of the list.The buttons need to be distinguishable, and one option to do so would be to either color code them and the respective groups, or add the group identifier to the button text as well (or on top of it separating the buttons this way visually).DetailsA double-click on an item opens a new window that throws a lot of details about that item or the connection at you.As you can see on the screenshot above, there is a wealth of information.

Air Berlin operates its last flights

first_imgAir Berlin operates its last flights Friday, October 27, 2017 Source: The Associated Press BERLIN — Germany’s bankrupt Air Berlin is operating its last flights, leaving employees facing an uncertain future and – at least for a while – a likely gap in the country’s aviation schedules.Air Berlin, which was Germany’s second-biggest airline, is ending operations after 38 years with a Friday evening Munich-Berlin flight. Germany’s No. 1, Lufthansa, plans to take over more than half its fleet but that deal has yet to win antitrust clearance. Talks are continuing with companies including easyJet on taking over other parts of Air Berlin.Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr said this week that 80 to 90 of Air Berlin’s nearly 140 planes will be grounded starting Saturday and “no one can compensate” for that.Air Berlin had some 8,000 employees.

US Liberty Reserve the largest money laundering probe in history

August 19, 2019

first_imgNEW YORK – The United States on Tuesday unveiled what it called the world’s “largest” money laundering probe against thedigital currency operator Liberty Reserve.The Costa Rica-based entity, which handled huge amounts of money outside the control of national governments, is charged with running a “$6 billion money laundering scheme and operating an unlicensed money transmitting business,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York said.U.S. prosecutors said Liberty Reserve processed at least 55 million illegal transactions for at least one million users “and facilitated global criminal conduct.”The probe involved law enforcement in 17 countries and “is believed to be the largest money laundering prosecution in history,” the prosecutor’s office said.Liberty Reserve’s principals were arrested on Friday in a round-up launched simultaneously in Costa Rica, Spain and in New York, sealing the fate of a company that had been one of the most successful in the wildly popular but increasingly scrutinized world of unofficial banking and virtual currencies.The unsealed indictment accuses founder Arthur Budovsky, 39 and a former U.S. citizen who took on Costa Rican nationality, and his partners of creating a firm that masqueraded as a convenient and legitimate money transfer system.In reality, the organization turned itself into the “financial hub of the cyber-crime world,” the indictment said.Customers would go to Liberty Reserve’s now shut-down website to buy the online currency, known as LRs, that could then be used in transactions with other LR users.The system was not registered with U.S. authorities, and unlike some other non-state currency systems, did not require proof of identity for users.Adding another important layer of anonymity, Liberty required customers to buy or sell their LRs via third party exchangers, meaning that there was no direct link between a customer’s traditional bank account and Liberty’s system.An extra service would allow a user to hide “his own Liberty Reserve account number when transferring funds, effectively making the transfer completely untraceable, even within Liberty Reserve’s already opaque system.”The system, the indictment says, was tailor-made for criminal transactions and money-laundering, facilitating “a broad range of online criminal activity, including credit card fraud, identity theft, investment fraud, computer hacking, child pornography, and narcotics trafficking.”“The scope of the defendants’ unlawful conduct is staggering,” the indictment said.“With more than 200,000 users in the United States, Liberty Reserve processed more than 12 million financial transactions annually, with a combined value of more than $1.4 billion.”Budovsky and his partners started Liberty Reserve after an earlier similar venture, GoldAge Inc, which traded the e-gold digital currency, was shut down by U.S. authorities.It was then that Budovsky emigrated to Costa Rica, later renouncing his U.S. citizenship.Virtual currencies have grown exponentially, but face pressure on numerous fronts. The popular Bitcoin system has come under scrutiny by financial authorities and seen growing trading volatility.

There are many questions facing every NFL team as

first_imgThere are many questions facing every NFL team as the 2014 offseason begins. The folks over at ESPN.com produced an Insider piece going over the top 50.Talking about all the issues — be it in the draft, free agency or otherwise — the panel came up with one that every Arizona Cardinal fan has probably been asking about for a while.And it just so happened to be No. 13 on the list.13. How the heck do the Arizona Cardinals pull ahead of San Francisco and Seattle?Sando: The Cardinals need to replenish their offensive line and add a speed element to their receiving corps. They can worry about upgrading at quarterback another time. Carson Palmer has done enough to remain the best option for the coming season. The line will definitely improve with Jonathan Cooper’s return from injury and when Arizona addresses its tackle situation. At receiver, coach Bruce Arians needs a Mike Wallace type. Look for the Cardinals to seek one in the draft while considering options in free agency. Comments   Share   Top Stories Indeed, at least the Cardinals don’t appear to need a quarterback, meaning they can focus their attention on addressing other areas of the team. And with the defending Super Bowl champions as well as the team they barely beat in the NFC Championship Game residing in their division, it would seem the Cardinals have quite a challenge ahead of them.Also noted by the panel is the recovery from injury for Tyrann Mathieu and the Larry Fitzgerald trade rumors. But as it stands now, the most pressing issue would appear to be the one the team may have the least control over.
