Webconférences Adobe Connect 8 arrive sur les smartphones


first_imgWeb-conférences : Adobe Connect 8 arrive sur les smartphonesLa nouvelle version de l’application d’Adobe, disponible à la fin du mois, va permettre aux utilisateurs de smartphones de participer à des conférences en ligne.Faire des conférences en ligne, audio et vidéo, depuis son téléphone portable sera bientôt possible grâce à Adobe Connect 8. Mais à une condition : nos smartphones devront être dotés de Flash. La seule présence du player doit pouvoir permettre d’organiser des réunions, formations et séminaires en ligne, de partager un écran et d’échanger des notes, quel que soit l’endroit où l’on se trouve.Avec cette nouvelle version, la stratégie d’Adobe est claire : être présent sur l’ensemble des écrans, fixes et mobiles (PC, Mac, Linux, les terminaux Android et iOs, ou encore les tablettes PlayBook de RIM).Mais alors, quid des produits Apple, officiellement dépourvus de Flash depuis que Steve Jobs a critiqué le player, qu’il considère “démodé” ? Adobe a pensé à tout pour être omniprésent. L’éditeur contre-attaque avec un client dédié pour iPhone qui devrait bientôt voir le jour.

Alerte au tsunami au Japon après un nouveau séisme


first_imgAlerte au tsunami au Japon après un nouveau séismeUn mois jour pour jour après le violent séisme de magnitude 9 qui a endeuillé le pays, le nord-est du Japon a été victime d’un nouveau séisme ce lundi, survenu non loin de la centrale nucléaire accidentée de Fukushima. Une alerte au tsunami a été lancée.De magnitude 7,1 selon TF1News, un nouveau séisme a été ressenti à Tokyo il y a quelques minutes, faisant trembler les immeubles de la capitale japonaise. Son épicentre serait situé sur terre, dans le sud de la préfecture de Fukushima, déjà dévastée par le puissant séisme et le tsunami qui ont frappé l’archipel nippon le 11 mars dernier.D’après Romandie.com, la télévision publique japonaise NHK a diffusé une carte indiquant les côtes de la façade Pacifique où un tsunami allant jusqu’à un mètre pourrait se produire.BFM TV précise que les employés de la centrale accidentée de Fukushima ont été évacués par précaution.Le 11 avril 2011 à 10:45 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more


Dix sangliers retrouvés morts sur une plage des CôtesdArmor


first_imgDix sangliers retrouvés morts sur une plage des Côtes-d’ArmorHuit sangliers -trois laies et cinq marcassins- ont été retrouvés morts dimanche près de la plage Saint-Maurice à Morieux (Côtes-d’Armor), fermée en raison de la présence d’algues vertes a-t-on appris lundi auprès de la préfecture des Côtes-d’Armor. Ce matin, deux nouveaux animaux ont été retrouvés.Les “mystérieux” décès d’animaux continuent en Bretagne. Dimanche, trois laies et cinq marcassins, soit au total huit sangliers, ont été retrouvés morts sur une plage de Morieux dans les Côtes d’Armor. Les cadavres des animaux ont été découverts dans la vase, à 400 mètres de l’endroit où deux marcassins avaient été retrouvés morts au début du mois de juillet sur la plage Saint-Maurice, a précisé Marc De La Forêt, sous-préfet de Guingamp cité par l’AFP.À lire aussiSoleil : Pourquoi est-ce que l’on bronze ?Plus précisément, les huit sangliers ont été trouvés dans l’estuaire du Gouessant, entre le Pont Rolland et la plage Saint-Maurice, une zone interdite d’accès dimanche par arrêté municipal en raison de la présence d’algues vertes toxiques. Selon un photographe de l’AFP sur place, l’estuaire du Gouessant, à proximité de la plage Saint-Maurice, est également touché par une impressionnante marée verte.Gaz toxiques des algues ou étouffement ?Pour l’heure, la cause de la mort des huit sangliers reste indéterminée, mais plusieurs hypothèses sont envisagées. Des test supplémentaires à l’autopsie des animaux et des analyses de prélèvements d’eau sont en cours. Elles concernent le Gouessant, lieu où se sont abreuvés les animaux. “A ce stade d’investigation, les résultats ne permettent pas d’identifier clairement les causes du décès. En effet, les animaux présentent des tableaux cliniques différents, dont la présence de vase dans les voies aériennes supérieures et des états pulmonaires divers”, a ainsi écrit la préfecture dans un communiqué avant de poursuivre : “des analyses complémentaires vont être réalisées. Elles porteront sur le contenu alimentaire et sur les tissus des animaux et le sang”.L’hypothèse des algues vertes et du gaz qu’elles rejettent n’est donc pour l’instant pas confirmée, ces décès pouvant être dus à un étouffement par de la vase. Néanmoins, Yves-Marie Le Lay, président de l’association Sauvegarde du Tregor, a pour sa part expliqué à l’AFP dimanche que la putréfaction des algues vertes produit de la vase hautement toxique qui se mélange au sable. Par ailleurs, deux nouveaux marcassins ont été retrouvés ce matin sur la plage de Morieux, annonce aujourd’hui Ouest-France. Les corps des animaux vont donc également faire l’objet d’analyses.La particularité environnementale des côtes bretonnesPrès de 32.000 m3 d’algues vertes ont été ramassées, au 18 juillet, en Bretagne, selon le dernier bilan de la préfecture de région.Un rappel récent de l’Agence de sécurité sanitaire de l’environnement au sujet de la prolifération des algues vertes dont la putréfaction génère des gaz toxiques, montrait à nouveau que les activités humaines, en particulier l’agriculture, constituaient l’apport principal des concentrations élevées de nitrates dans les eaux. Or, ce sont ces flux de nitrates combinés à des conditions géographiques et environnementales particulières qui sont responsables de la croissance des algues vertes.

Une réforme du contrôle des médicaments votée mardi


first_imgUne réforme du contrôle des médicaments votée mardiMardi, l’Assemblée nationale doit voter une réforme du contrôle des médicaments élaborée en urgence par le gouvernement suite au scandale du Mediator. Elle vise notamment à introduire une plus grande transparence entre les professionnels de la santé et l’industrie pharmaceutique. Près de deux ans après que le scandale du Mediator a éclaté, c’est un nouveau tournant que s’apprête à connaitre l’industrie pharmaceutique. Mardi, une réforme du contrôle des médicaments sera votée par l’Assemblée nationale. Une première étape pour ce projet élaboré en urgence par le gouvernement dans la foulée du scandale du traitement des laboratoires Servier. Le texte vise notamment à instaurer une plus grande transparence dans les liens d’intérêts entre les professionnels de la santé et l’industrie pharmaceutique. Comme l’a proposé la socialiste Catherine Lemorton, l’ensemble des acteurs du secteur sanitaire devront ainsi souscrire à des déclarations d’intérêts, sur une période d’au moins cinq ans. Des déclarations qui seront rendues publiques pour encore plus de transparence. De même, les députés se sont aussi prononcés en faveur de l’obligation, pour les laboratoires, de publier les avantages consentis aux professionnels de santé.Par ailleurs, alors que le scandale du Mediator a bien éclaboussé l’Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des produits de santé (Afssaps), le texte prévoit également la création d’une nouvelle agence rebaptisée Agence nationale de sécurité du médicament et des produits de santé (ANSM). Celle-ci devrait se charger du renforcement de la surveillance du médicament après leur autorisation de mise sur le marché, tandis que l’opposition de gauche a obtenu que les laboratoires pharmaceutiques ne siègent pas au conseil d’administration de cette ANSM.L’ensemble des données publiées À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?De même, Catherine Lemorton, pharmacienne de profession, a obtenu que soit créé un portail public qui fournira, sur le web, l’ensemble des données scientifiques et administratives sur les maladies et leurs traitements, rapporte l’AFP. Néanmoins, les laboratoires ne seront pas obligés comme le proposait la gauche, de mener des essais comparatifs pour prouver le bénéfice apporté par un nouveau médicament mis sur le marché par rapport à un médicament existant. Ce sera le rôle de l’ASNM de demander ces tests si elle le juge nécessaire. Si ce texte semble apporter des changements majeurs, le député communiste Roland Muzeau a estimé la semaine dernière qu’il n’empêchait pas les laboratoires de conserver toute leur emprise. Pour sa part, Catherine Lemorton a déclaré que même si les députés de l’opposition ont un peu amélioré le texte, des points d’achoppement restent rédhibitoires. En conséquence, les députés communistes ont d’ores et déjà annoncé qu’ils voteraient contre le texte, tandis que les socialistes ont laissé entendre qu’ils feraient de même sans confirmer. Après le vote solennel des députés mardi, le projet devra donc affronter la nouvelle majorité sénatoriale de gauche à une date non encore fixée.  Le 3 octobre 2011 à 10:12 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Le butinage mnémonique de lêtre humain


first_imgLe ‘butinage’ mnémonique de l’être humainDes chercheurs britanniques et américains ont montré expérimentalement que l’être humain, pour rechercher des informations dans différentes parties de sa mémoire, utilise une stratégie qui s’approche de celle des oiseaux ou des insectes. Ceux-ci passent d’une source de nourriture à une autre en optimisant le temps passé sur chacune.Le “théorème de la valeur marginale” des éthologistes stipule qu’au cours de sa recherche de nourriture, un animal (oiseau ou insecte) exploite une source donnée (une branche d’arbre fruitier, par exemple) avant de passer à une autre (la branche voisine), de façon à optimiser le ratio entre énergie dépensée à chercher (les fruits) et énergie gagnée en mangeant (les fruits qu’il a pu dénicher). Il s’agit donc de passer d’une source à l’autre en temps opportun, même si la première n’est pas totalement épuisée. En est-il de même pour l’homme à la recherche d’informations nombreuses dans sa mémoire, lors d’une tâche donnée ?À lire aussiCourir, c’est bon aussi pour la mémoire selon une étude !Pour le savoir, des chercheurs de l’Université de Warwick (Royaume-Uni) et de l’Université de l’Indiana (États-Unis) ont demandé à 141 étudiants de premier cycle (46 hommes et 95 femmes) de citer en 3 minutes le maximum de noms d’animaux. Les résultats ont ensuite été analysés en utilisant un schéma de catégorisation ainsi qu’un modèle d’espace sémantique (association de mots logiquement liés) appelé Beagle.Il s’avère que les personnes scrutant soit trop longtemps, soit pas assez longtemps une même ‘catégorie’ à l’intérieur de leur mémoire (par exemple celle des animaux domestiques, celle des grands félins, etc.), ont été moins performantes que celles qui ont mieux su estimer le meilleur moment pour basculer d’une catégorie mnémonique à une autre. En d’autres termes, les gens qui ont le plus étroitement adhéré au théorème de la valeur marginale ont été les plus efficaces.”Comme un oiseau entre les branches” “En raison de la façon dont l’attention humaine a évolué, nous nous demandions si les humains pourraient utiliser les mêmes stratégies [que les animaux butineurs] pour se ’nourrir’ dans leur propre mémoire. Il s’avère qu’ils le font. Lorsque nous sommes confrontés à une tâche de mémoire, nous nous concentrons sur des groupes spécifiques d’informations et nous ‘sautons’ de l’un à l’autre, comme un oiseau entre les branches”, conclut le Dr Thomas Hills qui a participé à l’étude publiée dans Psychological Revue.

Leau du robinet ne serait pas toujours conforme selon lUFCQue Choisir


first_imgL’eau du robinet ne serait pas toujours conforme, selon l’UFC-Que ChoisirSelon l’association de consommateurs UFC-Que Choisir, près de deux millions de personnes en France reçoivent une eau non conforme aux réglementations. Celle-ci est trop polluée et l’association accuse l’agriculture d’être à l’origine de 70% des contaminations.C’est une découverte préoccupante que vient de révéler une enquête menée par l’association de consommateurs UFC-Que Choisir. Celle-ci souligne qu’environ deux millions de Français reçoivent aujourd’hui une eau du robinet qui ne respecte pas la législation en vigueur dans ce domaine. Pour arriver à un tel résultat, l’association a étudié six critères “traduisant les principales contaminations” : la qualité bactériologique et les teneurs en aluminium, radioactivité, pesticide, nitrates et sélénium. À lire aussiDe l’eau rendue potable par l’énergie solaire, c’est possible !”Le cocktail des principaux polluants décelés (pesticides, nitrates, sélénium) met en évidence les graves menaces que la pression agricole fait peser sur la ressource”, ajoute l’association. En effet, l’étude montre que les départements les plus touchés se situent “dans les zones où l’agriculture est la plus intensive : Bassin Parisien (Eure-et-Loir, Loiret, Seine-et-Marne, Yonne), le Nord (Pas-de-Calais) et la Champagne (Marne, Aube)”. L’association souligne par ailleurs que l’utilisation des pesticides “n’a pas diminué en 10 ans”.Toutefois l’agriculture n’est pas la seule responsable de cette pollution de l’eau. Ainsi, 31% de la contamination serait à imputer “au défaut de traitement (qualité bactériologique, aluminium) et aux contaminations naturelles (radioactivité)”. Selon l’UFC qui publie la liste sur son site, “elles touchent 1.500 communes et 500.000 consommateurs”.Quelques réclamations font évidemment suite à ce constat et l’UFC demande de son côté “une protection efficace de tous les captages”, “une application du principe pollueur-payeur dans le domaine des pollutions agricoles” et que “les aides de la politique agricole commune (PAC) soient réservées aux modes de production s’inspirant des agricultures intégrées et biologiques”.Le 20 mars 2012 à 18:42 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Elle garde une lentille de contact coincée dans lœil pendant 28 ans


first_imgElle garde une lentille de contact coincée dans l’œil pendant 28 ansQuand  seul « le temps d’un battement de paupière » (Belle du Seigneur, Albert Cohen) suffit à certains pour tomber amoureux, pour d’autres il permet de dévoiler une lentille cachée pendant près de 30 ans. Et c’est l’étonnante découverte que vient de faire un ophtalmologue en opérant une Britannique de 42 ans. « Que personne ne bouge ; j’ai fait tomber un verre de contact ! ». Qui ne s’est jamais retrouvé à quatre pattes le nez penché sur le sol tentant de retrouver sa lentille ou celle d’un proche ? Avouons-le, dans ces cas-là, on pense rarement à la chercher dans son œil. Et pourtant, on devrait peut-être y songer plus souvent. La preuve…Par hasardC’est la revue médicale BMJ Case Reports qui a révélé l’étonnante découverte faite par un ophtalmologue britannique. Lorsqu’une mère de famille quadragénaire lui rend visite pour de récentes douleurs et un ptosis (affaissement) de la paupière gauche, il diagnostique un banal kyste. Une opération est alors programmée pour le retirer. Le jour de l’intervention, le praticien découvre cachée sous la paupière un verre de contact… qui a une intéressante historique à raconter. Un traumatisme de 28 ans La lentille retrouvée est en plastique rigide. Une précision qui surprend d’autant plus la patiente de 42 ans qu’elle n’a pas porté ce type de correction depuis au moins 20 ans. Sur le moment, la Britannique n’arrive pas à savoir comment ce verre a pu se retrouver sous sa paupière. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?C’est en interrogeant sa maman que la réponse est arrivée. Cette dernière se souvient que sa fille a effectivement perdu l’une de ses lentilles lors d’un choc avec un volant de badminton et qu’elle n’avait jamais été retrouvée. Mais cet accident s’est déroulé lorsqu’elle avait 14 ans. Les médecins qui rédigent le rapport n’ont donc d’autre choix que de conclure ainsi : « il peut être déterminé que la lentille a migré à l’intérieur de la paupière et y a résidé de manière asymptomatique pendant 28 ans ». Mais apparemment, cela ne serait pas si rare que cela. Ainsi CNN, relatait en juillet 2017 une surprise ophtalmologique encore plus étonnante.  Ce n’est pas un verre de contact qui avait été découvert dans les yeux d’une femme anglaise de 67 ans, souffrant de cataracte, mais 27 lentilles souples !

All the 80s references in Stranger Things Chapter Six The Monster


first_img The Monster1/17While this episode certainly does give us a couple of appearances from the mysterious creature that dwells in the eroded place that is the Upside Down – The Duffer Brothers in Twilight Zone fashion hammer home the question of who truly is the monster? Is it the creature or possibly Eleven and what she could become, perhaps it is the petty emotions that Steve demonstrates or Jonathan’s rage – or is the actual monster of this episode and series Matthew Modine’s character Dr. Martin Brenner? My money is on the last choice.<><> With each episode just stocked with eighties references I am sure that I missed one or two that you totally picked up on, so why not share them in the comments?Check out our other rundowns of 80s references in Stranger Things:Chapter One: The Vanishing of Will ByersChapter Two: The Weirdo on Maple StreetChapter Three: Holly, JollyChapter Four: The BodyChapter Five: The Flea and the AcrobatChapter Seven: The BathtubChapter Eight: The Upside Down Episode six of Stranger Things, entitled The Monster, while certainly full of thrills and chills, also takes its time to let us piece together some important pieces of the puzzle in regards to Eleven and what is going down at the Department of Energy in Hawkins. Every character seems to be given a moment to truly shine. As we’ve come to expect by now, the Duffer Brothers have managed to pack so many scenes with not just nods to eighties classic and cult films but also to truthfully present what it felt like to grow up in that decade.The brief synopsis for chapter six of Stranger Things is that once Nancy is rescued by Jonathan after she bravely/foolishly breached the Upside Down, plans are put into effect by the two to hunt the creature that has abducted Will and Barbara. She also learns that giving her heart to Steve might have been a bad idea. Meanwhile, for Mike, Dustin, and Lucas the Fellowship has been broken up after the events of The Flea and the Acrobat. While Dustin and Mike partner up to find Eleven – Lucas decides to go lone wolf and seek out Will on his own. All the while Sheriff Hopper and Joyce Byers attempt to find out more about Dr. Martin Brenner and Eleven by visiting a woman who lost her own child after taking part in experiments in the seventies conducted by Brenner.With the synopsis out of the way, how about we jump into the notable eighties references and interesting trivia that make up The Monster? Remember as always that we delve into some heavy spoiler so be warned if you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing the episode yet.last_img read more


Ash visits the tropics in the new Pokémon Sun and Moon anime


first_imgThe upcoming release of the much hyped Pokémon Sun and Moon game, along with the cast of new Pokémon, welcomes its very own tie-in anime series in November.We get to see the return of Ash Ketchum (Satoshi in the original Japanese version) and his best buddy Pikachu as he travels to the Alola islands to finally… go to school! That’s right! This class-ditching young hero must have been spotted by anime-child services and is finally going to be forced to study up. Maybe he has to learn how to do rudimentary algebra before travelling the rest of the world, who knows! Though, we suspect he will attend classes regularly as much as, say, the students in Naruto or Hogwarts actually do. Ash has his eye on graduation from the Alola school, as well as challenging the Melemele Island Guardian, Tapu Koko.Elements of the anime were revealed in the Japanese magazine CoroCoro Comic‘s October issue recently, showing some of the new creatures we’ll meet in the new series. All photos below from Twitter user pKjd.New characters! New Pokémon! New school! A Z-ring appears to power up Pikachu!We also get to see Rockruff’s evolution form, Lugarugan! So fluffy! The page mentions its form evolution form will change depending on whether it’s night or daytime. Above is its daytime transformation.Here is Lugarugan’s night evolution. Creepy AF.Two new Ultra Beasts introduced in the magazine are Expansion (the red beetle one), Beauty (pretty white bug lady), and a mysterious jellyfish with five questions marks for a name. Hmm!?!There are currently no announcements about the localization of Sun and Moon‘s anime to English-language. However, with the obvious popularity of Pokémon all of over the world right now, and the presence of the various Pokémon anime all over Cartoon Network, Netflix ,and Hulu, we’re sure it’s only a matter of time.The Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games will be released in Japan and North America on November 18th, and in Europe on November 23 or this year, with the anime slated to be released at about the same time.last_img read more


Humanscale QuickStand is a Smart Standing Desk for Your Dumb Legs


first_img Herman Miller’s Live OS Turns Desks Into Activity TrackersThis $25 cardboard standing desk promotes health, won’t make your … Sitting is the new cancer. I know I’ve led with that bold assertion from Apple CEO Tim Cook before, but that doesn’t make it any less true. However, the sadder truth is, outside from some articles on fitness smartwatches or Back to the Future shoes, a lot of things we cover on Geek.com encourage you to sit down for dangerously long hours at a time. You can’t really enjoy a fried chicken pizza standing up. Our bad.The workplace used to be a den of sinful, uninterrupted sitting, but now standing desks are lifting up employees everywhere. So to encourage you readers to stand the hell up, for your health, I spent the last week using and writing down my impressions of the Humanscale QuickStand. In fact, I’m standing up while typing these very words.The QuickStand isn’t a full desk but rather an accessory that is placed on top of your existing desk. A representative spent a few minutes assembling the mount itself while I slotted in all of my electronics afterwards. Between the two of us set-up lasted maybe an hour, and it was about as difficult as putting together a comparable piece of IKEA furniture. In fact, the mount even looks like something those Swedes might try to sell you. There’s the base, the spacious tray for your keyboard and mouse, a center column all of your wires run through, and a top bar for mounting two monitors or a monitor and a laptop on easily adjustable ball joints. It’s very sleek.That sleekness makes the one inelegant central element of the design all the more conspicuous. You can raise and lower everything from the tray up, so you can easily transition from standing to sitting. But once you’re in a preferred position, there’s no way to lock everything into place. Instead, you must use an Allen wrench to wind up the coil in the center column taut enough to create enough tension for keeping things where they are.This is an annoyingly vague set-up process. The representative said the weight I planned on placing on the QuickStand called for “30 to 40” turns with the wrench. But that was a total guess. I just had to keep turning until the tray stopped falling as soon as I lifted it up and let go. Even then, natural pressure from my hands resting against the otherwise convenient padded strip on the tray pushed everything down over time. And you if go overboard with turns, the tray won’t stay still in the lower position and starts to creep up. I haven’t used a lot of other standing desks, but I have to imagine there are some out there that let users simply snap into different positions.While QuickStand’s solution wasn’t my favorite, once everything was just right I didn’t have any majors problems using the mount. It easily fit on my desk. All of my pieces of tech fit in just fine. I could comfortably type, use my mouse, use my laptop, or look at my other monitor while standing or sitting. And I appreciated having a good reason to stand up from time to time while working in the office, for my health.However, if all you’re looking for out of a standing desk is the self-satisfaction of standing up, the QuickStand might be overkill. At home I use a cheap little upright computer tray thing when I want to stand up and work. It’s not nearly as nice as the QuickStand, it’s smaller and doesn’t move at all, but it’s also a fraction of the cost. Humanscale is selling you a premium standing desk experience with the $849 QuickStand (lighter models are cheaper). You just have to decide for yourself if that’s worth it to you.The good news is, whatever you decide, standing up is totally free. So what are you waiting for? Get up!

If you haven’t been watching, Better Call Saul is a rare spinoff that’s as good as, and might even be better than, its source material. Seriously, catch up as soon as you can because season three promises to bring in even more characters from Breaking Bad.Most notably, the upcoming season will feature the return of Gus Fring and Los Pollos Hermanos. Gus was probably the most dangerous adversary Walter White faced in Breaking Bad, and we can’t wait to see exactly how Jimmy/Future Saul got involved with him in the first place. Until then, we have actor Giancarlo Esposito’s Twitter. Those lucky enough to attend SXSW this year had the opportunity to eat at an actual Los Pollos Hermanos. For once, you could be absolutely sure that the money you spent at a fast food chicken chain would in some way end up in the hands of a methamphetamine cartel. You know, as opposed to merely suspecting.The rest of us who couldn’t make it down to Austin have to live vicariously through Esposito, who posted photos of the pop up to his Twitter feed.last_img read more


You Need To Be Reading Power Rangers from BOOM Studios


first_imgStay on target There is no better time to be a Power Ranger fan than now. Today sees the release of the Power Rangers movie, and you can check out Geek.com’s review from MovieBob here, and the comic series,  launched a little over a year ago from BOOM! Studios have been perfectly capturing the spirit of the show. Luckily, with the release of the movie, Comixology is having a sale on the main series, which you can find here. So in anticipation for the movie, we’re gonna take a look at the great series that BOOM! has been putting out over the past year.The main series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, by writer Kyle Higgins and primary artist Hendry Prasyeta, follows the team after Tommy, the Green Ranger, has recently joined their ranks. Jumping right into the lore of the Power Rangers, and their villains, the series quickly set out to establish its place in the Power Ranger continuity with the introduction of the Evil Ranger, known as Lord Drakkon, in its second arc. Higgins and Prasyeta do something special with the Power Rangers franchise here, blending the characters and mythology of the show with more western superhero comic ideals. I don’t want to talk about it too much out of fear that I’ll spoil something, but just know that if you’re a fan of the Power Rangers series, superhero comics, or just a fun story, Mighty Morphin’ is the book for you.Writer Kyle Higgins is underrated to me, always putting out stellar work. He worked a lot on the Batman family during the New 52 relaunch, and his Nightwing run never got the love that I felt it deserved. His recent works for Image, C.O.W.L. and Hadrian’s Wall, showed that he could do a lot with a story and not rely on the bombastic energy of a superhero comics to keep readers interested.  Higgins’ tone and Prasyeta’s art find a balance between western superhero art and more manga-influenced eastern comics, which is super appropriate given that they are adapting a TV show that was brought to America by splicing up clips of a Japanese children’s show. The artwork always reminds me of a slightly grittier Legend of Korra, which I am not complaining about. Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers legitimately feels like special, though, unlike many other licensed series, so Higgins and Prasyeta must be fans of the franchise for this book to be as good as it is.via BOOM! StudiosLaunched in June of last year, about six months after the main series started, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink followed the original Pink Ranger, Kimberly Hart, as she struggles with her identity as both a superhero and as a member of the team. Written by Brenden Fletcher, Kelly Thompson, and Tini Howard, with art by Daniele Di NiCuolo, it was a mini-series only lasting six issues, with the book being consistently enjoyable. It felt like it shared the same passion and energy for the characters/franchise as the main series. The six issues have since been collected into a trade paperback, both of which are available in print or online.via BOOM! StudiosLastly is Justice League/Power Rangers, the first crossover that has been released since BOOM! took over the series. Written by Tom Taylor and with art by Stephen Byrne, the series follows the two teams colliding after their respective villains accidentally cause their universes to merge. Tom Taylor, the writer of the Injustice comic book based on the video game, seems to have a knack for getting his hands in a toybox and running wild with it, which clearly shows here. Artist Stephen Byrne is one of my favorite creators in comics, with a great style that lends itself especially well to the colorful chaos that this series has. The first three issues are out so far, and available in stores and online at Comixology.

Swoon Thirteenth Doctors Outfit Revealed


first_img HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster GASP — Rachael Stott (@RachaelAtWork) November 9, 2017I honestly can’t stop staring at the photo: She looks like she’s about to step out of whatever magical hilltop she’s on and into my office, hopefully to become my new best friend.(Those mustard suspenders, blue cropped culottes, and rainbow-stripe shirt are giving me serious fashion envy.)Mork from Ork jokes aside (remember: he was an alien, too!), I’m thrilled to see new showrunner Chris Chibnall and the BBC didn’t soften the character’s look.Yes, Whittaker has made history as the first female Doctor in the show’s 50-plus-year history. But that doesn’t mean she needs to wear tight tops, short skirts, tall heels, or a coy smile to prove her worth. Reliably informed that we’re going to be getting a brand new sonic, too! #DoctorWho #Series11— Doctor Who Online (@DrWhoOnline) November 9, 2017Until Christmas (or, more likely, autumn 2018), we won’t really know who the Thirteenth Doctor is. Will she be funny and spirited? Or sullen and enigmatic? Will she welcome her new companions, or shut them out?I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But I must admit, this is one novel I’d instantly grab off the shelf.Now, excuse me while I print out this picture and hang it above my desk, in anticipation of next fall’s series (co-starring Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill).View as: One Page Slides1. “13th Doctor”(via Moga Moka)2. “Who is she?”(via Stephen Byrne)3. “I didn’t even open a fresh page.

GEEK PICK OF THE DAY SwitchPack is Our Favorite Nintendo Switch Bag


first_img Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls Stay on target Let’s be real. Although the key, incredible feature of the Nintendo Switch is that it can be used as both home console and handheld gaming device, many people are going to naturally lean in one direction or the other. For me, the Switch is primarily a very versatile and powerful portable game machine, the next step in Nintendo’s illustrious handheld legacy, the PlayStation Vita but good.If you’re like me and mostly use your Switch on the go, then you realize that a good case is crucial. The Switch is more fragile than typical Nintendo hardware, so you don’t want it to get damaged. You could lose hundreds of dollars (and game saves that can’t yet be backed up). Plus, a case just makes it easier to carry a Switch, and disguises it from potential thieves.We’ve got a whole feature showcasing the variety of great Nintendo Switch cases you can buy. But for my money the best Switch case you can get, the Switch case I personally use, is the SwitchPack by WaterField Designs.San Francisco company WaterField Designs is known for its premium cases for laptops, tablets, smartwatches, and other tech products. With that established expertise, WaterField quickly established itself as arguably the most impressive player in the Switch case market, provided you could swallow the price.I’ve tested and used pretty much every WaterField Switch case, sometimes for months at a time. So it means something when I say the SwitchPack is my favorite case from them by far. I believe them when they say it’s the result of listening to a year of customer feedback because this case fixes every issue I’ve had with previous WaterField cases. The CitySlicker case was sleek but could pretty much only hold the Switch itself. The Arcade Gaming Case fits in more accessories but not quite enough to be complete. The Multiplayer Pro Case could contain everything you want but it had to be bulky to do so.The SwitchPack case finally solves my Goldilocks dilemma. The case is very similar to the Arcade Gaming case. It’s like a little leather briefcase with a convenient handle, zipper and internal pouches, and front flap that closes with magnets. It’s just slightly bigger than the Arcade Gaming Case. But that changes everything.With the extra space here’s what I’m currently keeping in my SwitchPack case: Nintendo Switch with attached Joy-Con, Pro Controller, extra microSD card, HDMI cable, power cable, cartridge holder, SFANS portable dock, extra USB-C cable, Switch stand. I could probably even jam in an external battery.With all of those accessories not only can I take my Switch on the go for portable play, but if I wind up somewhere with a TV I also have everything necessary for console play. It’s true freedom. And if you’re a Nintendo Switch owner with $129 to spend, that freedom can be yours with the WaterField Designs SwitchPack case.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more


Crew Simulations Expose Weak Spots in NASA Mars Mission


first_imgStay on target I can barely stand a week in the same house with eight of my closest friends. Imagine what traveling 250 million miles and living with relative strangers on an unfamiliar planet could do to your psyche.Northwestern University researchers are doing just that via a predictive model to help NASA anticipate conflicts and communication breakdowns among crew members on the Mission to Mars.A multiphase study, conducted in two analog environments in the US and Russia, focuses on the behavior of astronaut crews on mock missions. That includes isolation, sleep deprivation, specifically designed tasks, and mission control—complete with delayed communication, just like real space travel.The goal, according to Northwestern, is threefold:Establish the effects of isolation and confinement on team functioningIdentify methods to improve team performanceDevelop a predictive model to assemble an ideal team and identify potential issues with already composed teams before and during the mission“Astronauts are super humans. They are people who are incredibly physically fit and extremely smart,” project co-leader Leslie DeChurch, a professor in NU’s School of Communication, said in a statement.Still, the psychological demands of a trip to Mars—during which communication delays with worldwide mission controls will exceed 20 minutes—is greater than anything asked of space explorers before.With that in mind, Northwestern researchers have been collecting data from the Human Experimentation Research Analog (HERA) at Houston’s Johnson Space Center.The capsule simulator houses astronauts for up to 45 days; trainees try to perform tasks while running on little sleep. Meanwhile, a mock mission control augments the experience with sound effects, vibrations, and communication delays.And researchers collect moment-to-moment metrics about individual performance, moods, psychosocial adaptation, and more.Initial data suggests there is plenty of room for improvement.Teams DeChurch and Contractor studied experienced diminished abilities to think creatively and solve problems; participants successfully completed tasks only 20 to 60 percent of the time.“Creative thinking and problem solving are the very things that are really going to matter on a Mars mission,” DeChurch said. “We need the crew to be getting the right answer 100 percent of the time.”The next phase of research began Friday, as the model tries to predict breakdowns and problems a new HERA crew will experience.Researchers are expanding the experiment to the SIRIUS analog at Moscow’s Institute for Bio-Medical Problems. In March, four Russians and two Americans will undertake a 120-day fictional mission around the Moon—including a Moon landing operation.More on Geek.com:NASA’s InSight Lander Deployed Second Instrument on MarsNASA Says Goodbye to Its Mars Opportunity RoverElon Musk ‘Confident’ SpaceX Ticket to Mars Will Cost Less than $500K NASA Captures ‘Red-Handed’ Avalanche on Mars in Mesmerizing PhotoBest Skywatching Events in September 2019 last_img read more


New Uber Initiative Boosts Rider Safety on College Campuses


first_img Starbucks to Deliver Nationwide Via Uber EatsUber’s New Rideshare Tier Is the Height of Comfort Stay on target Uber is cracking down on fake rideshare drivers after a college student was murdered last month waiting for a pick up.The transportation network, in partnership with the University of South Carolina, has launched the Campus Safety Initiative: a national effort to help students learn how to avoid fraudulent chauffeurs.In March, 21-year-old USC student Samantha Josephson went missing after getting into a car outside a Columbia bar. Her body was later found on a secluded dirt road in nearby Clarendon County.The Columbia Police Department announced that 24-year-old Nathaniel Rowland has been charged with murder and kidnapping, after matching large amounts of blood in the suspect’s car to the missing New Jersey woman, CBS reported.It’s believed Rowland posed as an Uber driver to lure his victim into the car.“We were heartbroken by the recent crime committed by a fake rideshare driver in South Carolina,” Andrew Macdonald, Uber VP of operations, wrote in a blog post. “While no words can alleviate the loss felt by the Josephson family, we are committed to continuing to take action to make our communities safer.”Existing public awareness campaign Check Your Ride, introduced two years ago, encourages users to double check that the vehicle and driver match details in the app before entering a car.But if you’re in a hurry or maybe a bit tipsy, safety precautions can often be thrown to the wind.New in-app safety features—like push notifications and banners—are rolling out now to remind folks how to confirm the right car before it arrives.“In addition to these steps, you can also ask the driver to confirm your name,” Macdonald suggested, echoing the #WhatsMyName mission by the Josephson family to educate the world on rideshare precautions.Inspired by the University of South Carolina and its students, Uber is working with the Columbia Police Department to create dedicated pickup zones—well-lit areas with law enforcement on hand to help riders and drivers connect safely.“Our goal is to make checking your ride before you get in the car synonymous with using Uber,” Macdonald said. “There is nothing more important than the safety of the people we serve and we’re constantly working to improve.”Rival Lyft also announced enhancements to the safety and security of its platform, including continuous background checks and enhanced identity verification.Neither of which will save an unsuspecting rider from getting into the wrong car.

Toy Tuesday The Most Powerful HeMan Toys


first_img Initially introduced by Mattel after their attempt to secure the Star Wars license fell through, Masters of the Universe were one of the biggest toy successes of the 1980s, boasting a seemingly endless array of ultra-buff warriors and a few comely female companions, each with their own unique gimmick. Here’s our rundown of the coolest He-Man toys, from retro sculpts to modern updates.Mondo Tees He-Man Action FigureThe character of He-Man evolved quite a bit in the fiction surrounding the toy line. Originally he was just a Conan-esque barbarian, but when the cartoon series premiered he got a medieval backstory as Prince Adam, the scion of Eternia, who could raise his magic sword aloft and transform into the shirtless ass-kicker. Geek culture Mecca Mondo announced a new line of Masters toys last year, and it’s only fitting that He-Man is their first entry. This is a pre-order — the line won’t ship until the Fall — but it’s already guaranteed to be a hot collector’s item. You can wait.Get it at Amazon.comModulok Action FigureNearly all of the male Masters of the Universe toys were cast from the same basic body mold, which saved Mattel a lot of money but resulted in pretty similar-looking characters. When there was an exception, though, it was pretty damn cool. Modulok was introduced in 1985 after the first wave of Evil Horde enemies, and he was like nothing the series had seen before. Composed of 22 individual pieces, he could be reformed and arranged in dozens of different configurations. This was a mind-blower at the time and the revised Classics version is just as cool today.Get it at Amazon.comTrap-Jaw Action FigureOf all of Skeletor’s many weird henchmen, few were quite as iconic as Trap-Jaw. In continuity, he was a criminal from an alien dimension brought to Eternia by Skeletor who nearly defeated He-Man before being injured and reduced to a mere lackey. His metal arm featured a modular socket in which he could affix all sorts of weird weapons like a hook, claw and laser beam. This 2008 sculpt was part of the Masters of the Universe Classics line and really goes all-out on the detail. I love that it still includes the little loop in his helmet so he can slide down a zipline, though. That was always fun.Get it at Amazon.comSideshow Collectibles Skeletor StatueThe cadaverous ruler of Snake Mountain is one of the most iconic cartoon villains of all time, a blue-skinned beefcake with a skull for a head and a lot of cronies to do his bidding. Skeletor craves conquering Castle Grayskull, which will increase his mystic might to a level sufficient to take over an entire universe. This incredibly detailed statue from Sideshow Collectibles stands over 21 inches high and weighs 15 pounds. The paint job is painstakingly accurate, with tons of undertones and accents that will make him the centerpiece of your villain collection.Get it at Amazon.comFunko Pop OrkoOne of the few characters created for the TV series and then retroactively inserted into the toy line, Orko was the comic relief character for Masters, a floating “Trollian” magician from another dimension. Fun bit of trivia: he was originally named “Gorpo” in the first script drafts. Whatever you call him, Orko was the guy responsible for delivering the little morals and messages at the end of many episodes. Now you can have him in Funko Pop form, which is a pretty good match for his general aesthetic.Get it at Amazon.comMega Construx Castle GrayskullGetting the original 1980s Castle Grayskull playset will require a big chunk of time on eBay or a lucky garage sale somewhere. But why not make one yourself instead? Mega Construx — the high-end Mega Bloks line from Mattel — has the He-Man license, and they’ve used it for a number of pretty cool kits. The Castle Grayskull is far and away the beefiest, measuring over 3,600 pieces and featuring tons of cool elements, like a hinging structure, multiple floors, working missile launchers and six scale figures to play with. Yes, they’re compatible with Legos, too, so you can have a crossover.Get it at Amazon.comSuper7 Laughing Prince Adam FigureThe often cheap Filmation animation used for Masters of the Universe looks incredibly hokey today, and footage from the show has found its way into remixes and memes for quite some time. One of the more famous bits involves He-Man’s alter ego, the inexplicably wimpy despite having the exact same body shape Prince Adam, laughing maniacally at whatever. The lunatics at Super 7 took inspiration from the meme and actually released a SDCC exclusive figure with a brand new laughing head sculpt for the serious fans out there, of which everybody should be one.Get it at Amazon.comMasters of The Universe M.U.S.C.L.E. SetWe’re in very strange times, when toy lines can mix and mingle in previously unimaginable ways. M.U.S.C.L.E. Things were a brief but bright 80s fad, a collection of small rubbery fighters based on the Japanese Kinnikuman manga about absurd pro wrestlers. And now, in 2019, there’s He-Man versions of them. This set of 20 bright yellow figures includes such Eternia luminaries as Kobra Khan, Tri-Clops, Evil-Lyn and of course some He-Men and Skeletors. There’s even a Castle Greyskull. What more could you ask for in this life?Get it at Amazon.comSuper 7 Los Amos SkeletorMasters of the Universe wasn’t just a local phenomenon. Countries all around the world got their own versions of the TV show and toy line, often with some unusual localizations. In Mexico, it was called Los Amos del Universo, and the creators of the tie-in comics didn’t have access to everything so they had to make some strange choices. Most notably, Skeletor’s color scheme was wildly different, with a lurid pink face, turquoise body and lime green armor. Toymaker Super 7 created this near-bootleg take, scaled at G.I. Joe size, for hardcore fans and it’s pretty awesome.Get it at Amazon.comKing Randor StatuePrince Adam’s dad had a pretty sweet mustache but didn’t seem to be that effective a ruler, leaving it up to his kid and his pet cat to defend Eternia against all sorts of villains and creeps. He’s also so dumb he doesn’t realize that Prince Adam and He-Man are the same person. That said, he’s still royalty and we have to treat him with a modicum of respect. This excellent statue of King Randor all kitted up for battle and wielding a mighty sword was sculpted by the Four Horsemen and even comes with a fur cape.Get it at Amazon.comShe-Ra Action FigureOriginally devised as a way to get girls into the Masters fantasy franchise, She-Ra has really come into her own in recent years with a new Netflix series that brings it up to modern sensibilities in fine form. The long-lost sister of Prince Adam kidnapped by the malevolent Hordak and raised on Etheria, where she was brainwashed to serve in the Evil Horde until she found the Sword of Protection and embraced her magical alter ego.
