    Over the past few years, video games have been growing in popularity at a rapid pace. This has been especially true in the midst of the pandemic. They are not only a key piece for the introduction of innovative technologies to the general market. They have also been a starting point for what will hopefully be positive adjustments in the stock market and in competition. But at the end of the day, the industry will always focus on gaming. And in this sense, few elements of the video game industry receive as much attention as consoles. Despite being a relatively small piece of the industry, at least in terms of revenue, they are still the element that most attracts the public’s attention on a global scale. You could even say that they are the true face of the industry. For this reason, it is worth analyzing a report recently released...

    February 10, 2021 10:41 AM | With information from EFE 15 minutes.

The data coincides with that anticipated by analysts. Core inflation, which excludes US food and fuel prices, which are the most volatile, was unchanged in January.

    Chances are, your boss knows you’re not actually sick on the Monday after the Super Bowl. For many viewers, Super Bowl Sunday is synonymous with indulgence — and sometimes drinking a little too much — and that means that the morning after is frequently fraught with headaches, nausea and irritability. In fact, that day is generally considered to be one of the biggest sick days of the year, and it’s pretty obvious why. Millions of Americans are expected to call out "sick" on the Monday after the Super Bowl. (iStock) Last year, The New York Post reported that an estimated 11 million people had scheduled time off from work on the day after the Super Bowl due, perhaps anticipating the need for a day to recover. The same report also estimated that 5 million people would call out sick that day for the same reason. Our behavior in previous years may have been even...

    Mention the word “shark” to most people, and they will most likely think of a cruel, bloodthirsty monster along the lines of those portrayed in “Jaws” or the “Sharknado” series. When the word “shark” is used to describe a human, it carries negative connotations of deceitfulness and cunning. We seem to have developed an idea of the shark as a ruthless predator who will stop at nothing to procure some human flesh … but the reality is that sharks have good reason to be far more afraid of us than we are of them. Between 1998 and 2013, shark populations plummeted by 60 to 90 percent because of the shark fin soup industry. The practice of shark finning – which involves slicing off a shark’s fins while the animal is still fully conscious, then throwing the shark back into the sea, to die a slow and agonizing death – is...

    Miami Herald | Tribune News Service | Getty Images The next stimulus checks could be smaller than $1,400 and reach fewer people if a new plan put forward by some Republican senators is approved. The new proposal from a group of 10 GOP lawmakers calls for $1,000 checks per person, rather than the $1,400 sum proposed by President Joe Biden. That would bring the direct payments to $1,600, including the first payment authorized in December. Individuals earning up $40,000 per year would be eligible for the full payments. Those with incomes above that threshold would see payments gradually phase out, and eligibility would be capped at $50,000 in annual pay.

    Newsmax; Samantha Lee/Insider Greg Kelly has reinvented himself from a lively local morning show host to a firebrand far-right pundit defending Donald Trump's most fact-challenged theories. Kelly, the son of former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, started his career local news and advanced to the anchor chair at a Fox affiliate thanks to a combination of his military service, charisma, and family connections to the cable network's CEO Roger Ailes. But he was often ridiculed by sharp-tongued media critics at Gawker and E! Entertainment's The Soup who mercilessly covered his gaffes.  Now Kelly has re-emerged as the face of Newsmax, a fringe cable network that aims to compete with the Fox News empire for a growing pool of conservative viewers alienated by the mainstream media -- and increasingly supportive of violence against the state.

    A long-lost painting from famed American modern artist Jacob Lawrence is going on display in the New York Metropolitan Museum this week after it was discovered hanging in an apartment in Manhattan's Upper West Side. According to the New York Times, a recent visitor to the museum's exhibition 'Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle' believed that the painting hanging in her neighbor's apartment may have been one of the missing five panels from the work's original series of thirty.

    In early September, Palantir, a controversial tech company set to go public later that month, began its investor day webcast with a smoothly-edited scene of Alex Karp, the company's CEO, roller-skiing on a path in a mountain forest. Pumping his ski poles, Karp heads off-path up a hill until he stops before the camera. Looking directly into it, he launches into a monologue about Palantir's investor day, reflecting the optimism that earned the company an estimated $22 billion valuation in late September, despite never turning an annual profit in its seventeen-year-history. The mountain setting alone seems to explain why Karp chose downtown Denver for the company's new headquarters, which Palantir moved into in August.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — When the coronavirus emerged in the U.S. this year, public health officials and advocates for the homeless feared the virus would rip through shelters and tent encampments, ravaging vulnerable people who often have chronic health issues.

    There are numerous scientific studies that have shown the benefits of taking a walk in the woods on our physical and mental state: lNature is a good anxiolytic that reduces stress and depression levels. That is one of the many environmental services that forests provide us. This concept of environmental or ecosystem service has been widely used in recent years to highlight a series of benefits, often intangible and of no economic value, that natural systems provide to all humans. These forest services include resources such as wood, food or fresh water, and also important regulatory processes such as erosion and pest control., water purification, pollination, nutrient cycles, etc. Forests capture carbon dioxide and contribute to the mitigation of climate change, favor the conservation of biological diversity and create opportunities for employment and recreational activities. Forests are estimated to occupy a third of the entire land surface of the planet....

    Social distancing far outstrips a warmer climate as an effective means of curbing the spread of COVID-19, a new study indicates. Much of the U.S. shut down in March as officials scrambled to get a handle on the rapidly spreading coronavirus, with varying levels of success. In the new study, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and elsewhere measured links between limited movement, population density and climate with the virus' estimated spread among more than half of the U.S. population in 211 counties. In order to stop the spread of the virus, experts say its R value – the number of people an infected person will go on to infect – should be below 1. The new analysis shows estimated R values varied across counties during the study period, which covered from late February to late April, but were generally higher earlier on, peaking at an average of 7.8 in...

    DOWN the generations, our royal family has basked in riches most of us can only dream of, surrounded by palaces, jewels and precious art purchased with public funds. But how much is the Queen and the rest of the royal family worth? And who is worth the most? 23 The Queen looking regal at a service for the Order of the British Empire in 2012Credit: Getty - Pool The royals enjoy an annual income courtesy of the Sovereign Grant – money paid to the royals by the government, which last year rose to a whopping £82.8 million a year, up from just £7.9 million in 2010. It’s a vast sum, but as I discovered when I set out to write a book scrutinising both the finances and the conduct of the Windsors, it is a drop in the ocean of the bulging royal bank accounts. Aided not just by lavish...
    New details in the harrowing police killing of George Floyd have been revealed after a court unsealed police bodycam footage of the incident. The new footage, from cameras worn by officers Thomas Lane and Alexander Kueng, showed white officer Derek Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck for nine and a half minutes – a minute longer than previously estimated. Floyd gasped for breath and said 'please' more than 50 times in his interaction with officers, according to MPR News. At one point in the clip Lane asks multiple times if they should roll Floyd on his side as he pleaded for air. Chauvin is heard saying 'just leave him'.  Nothing in the footage captured by cameras suggests Floyd acted aggressively or threateningly with officers. A Hennepin County Judge allowed members of the public and journalists to view the video evidence in person on Wednesday but they were not allowed to record...

The recovery is highly uncertain in the second half of the year and will not be enough to return to pre-health crisis levels, even in the best of scenarios, and there is a risk of constant loss of jobs on a large scale, warns the International Labor Organization (ILO). According to the ILO Observatory: COVID-19 and the world of work. 5th edition, hours of work globally decreased from 14 percent in the second quarter of 2020, equivalent to the loss of 400 million full-time jobs (based on a 48-week workweek). hours).

    PORTSMOUTH — The Portsmouth Police Department issued a statement on Friday via Facebook reminding Ohio citizens of the Ohio Revised Code which bans its unauthorized residents from “letting off” fireworks at any time. The post was made in response to some complaints PPD received just a week before the 4th of July holiday. Via the post, “We have had several complaints about people setting off fireworks in the city.

              The Minnesota Legislature’s recent special session ended with no major accomplishments, but the eight-day session will still cost taxpayers an estimated $108,000. The special session concluded on June 20 after Republicans in the Senate and Democrats in the House failed to reach an agreement on police reform legislation, the allocation of federal coronavirus relief funds, and other leftover business from the regular session, such as a borrowing package for public infrastructure projects. Gov. Tim Walz announced Thursday that he would use his executive authority to distribute the coronavirus relief money by himself. One of the only things the special session did accomplish was the extension of Walz’s emergency powers, since the Legislature needs to be in session when the governor extends a peacetime emergency. According to a report from KSTP, the special session cost between $50,000 and $60,000 for lodging, mileage, and other...

    Death records show that hundreds of Americans die from heat each year, but a new investigation reveals it may actually be thousands. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated some 600 people lose their lives to extreme temperatures, but a new study suggests the real amount is more than 5,600. Researchers used data from the National Center for Health Statistic on deaths in populous areas in the US from 1997 through 2006, along with a model that estimates temperatures in these regions. The data shows moderate heat killed 3,309 people per year in the counties included in the study, and extreme heat killed 2,299 people each year. However, as the coronavirus linger across the nation, experts fear these numbers will increase, as publicly accessible air conditioned spaces are now longer available.

    MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday chastised the billionaire owner of a nickel giant for negligence over a massive fuel oil spill that has inflicted huge damage on a fragile Arctic region. An estimated 20,000 tons of diesel oil spilled into the Ambarnaya River last Friday from a broken tank at a power plant in Norilsk, 2,900 kilometers (1,800 miles) northeast of Moscow. Booms were laid across the river to prevent the fuel oil from getting into a lake downstream that feeds another river leading to the environmentally delicate Arctic Ocean. Putin has declared a state of emergency in the region to help minimize the consequences of the spill. The power plant is operated by a division of Norilsk Nickel, whose giant plants in the area have made Norilsk one of the most heavily polluted places on the planet. Investigators have started looking into the cause...
    NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Researchers in Cyprus offered more evidence on Thursday that a two-month lockdown benefited the Mediterranean island nation’s environment. Preliminary results showed significantly reduced levels of carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides along a normally busy street and in a suburb of Nicosia between February and April compared to the same period last year. Both pollutants are produced by fossil fuel use. The study by researchers at the Cyprus Institute’s Climate and Atmosphere Center showed that carbon monoxide levels dropped by 28% and 23% respectively along the street and in the suburb. Levels of nitrogen oxides dropped 57% and 67% respectively. Most cars stayed off Cypriot roads between March and May during a government stay-at-home order that included a night-time curfew. A recent study co-authored by Cyprus Institute Professor Jos Lelieveld that looked at pollution declines during COVID-19 lockdowns estimated that, up until mid-May, 50,000 premature deaths...
