NBA G-League player collapses during game and rushed to hospital

Zeke Upshaw has spent the past two years playing for the Grand Rapids Drive.
Zeke Upshaw, a forward who plays for the G-League’s Grand Rapids Drive, collapsed on the court during a game on Saturday and has been hospitalized. he suffered cardiac arrest and was last reported to be in serious condition.
Upshaw was playing defense with about 50 seconds left in a game against the Long Island Nets when he fell to the floor. He was stretchered off the court and taken to Spectrum Health Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The 26-year-old Upshaw played for Grand Rapids the past two seasons after spending his collegiate career at Illinois State and later Hofstra. He also spent two seasons overseas, playing in leagues located in Slovenia and Luxembourg.
Video shows Upshaw dropping to the floor untouched and remaining motionless on his stomach until stretched off the court. Grand Rapids Press’ Peter J. Wallner reported Sunday morning that Drive officials had no further updates on Upshaw yet.

Join The EXODUS! How To Delete Your Facebook Account

Michael Grothaus

21/03/2018 – 3:25pm

Hey, you should share this on Facebook – it's a quick guide on how to delete your Facebook profile

To say Facebook is having a rough week is an understatement. The company is going through the worst crisis in its history. The scandal involves the data of 50 million Facebook users that was obtained without their permission by U.K. company Cambridge Analytica. That data was then reportedly used to help Donald Trump get elected. So thanks for that, Facebook. But the scandal raises further issues that have been simmering in the background for years: Facebook knows more about our personal lives–and how each individual user thinks–than many of our close friends. As the Guardian notes:
“All this still goes back to something that remaert_main_wide_image/public/2018/03/screen_shot_2018-03-21_at_3.07.36_pm.jpg?itok=_lf-3Q1F” width=”620″ height=”256″ alt=”” />

So, ready to delete your Facebook account permanently? Here’s how:

First, you might want to download all your data before you delete your account. If you do, click the down arrow at the top right of any Facebook page.
Click Settings.
Click “Download a copy of your Facebook data” at the bottom of General Account Settings
Click “Start My Archive.” Facebook will then start assembling your archive and let you know when it’s ready for download.
After doing all that, you’re ready to delete your Facebook account for good. To do that, go to this link and click “Delete My Account.”

And that’s it. Now go outside and enjoy real life.

Hey, thank for your visiting to this post . I wish this post provide some useful informations about mobile technology for you.

Huawei P10 review: Buy now or hold out for the P20?

Should you buy a Huawei P10 in 2018? Well, yes and no. On one hand, the big complaint we had last when we reviewed it in March 2017 was that it was expensive, and that’s now a moot point for two reasons: firstly because £550 for a flagship phone is actually quite reasonable in 2018, but mainly because it has seen substantial price cuts and can now be had for around £350 if you shop around. In fact, no need to shop around: here it is for that price at Argos and the Carphone Warehouse. 
So why would you not bite at that appealing price? Well, mainly because something better is just around the corner. The Huawei P20 is widely rumoured, and you can read up on the latest gossip at our sister site Expert Reviews right now. Even if you’re not particuarly interested in having the latest and greatest, it’s probably worth holding off to see what a new Huawei flagship does to the price of the old one.
My original review continues below.
Hey, look! There’s an elephant in the room. Dumbo – what’s your beef?
I see. Apparently the elephant’s specific grievance is the extra £100 that’s being charged for the Huawei P10 against what the Huawei P9 cost a year ago. While Huawei doesn’t say so specifically, it wouldn’t be too big a leap of logic to assume that this is down to the weak pound following the UK’s vote to leave the European Union. The company certainly wouldn’t be the first tech company to use Brexit as an excuse to raise prices.
Whether or not the price rise is justified, the impact on this review is the same: the Huawei P10 is a damned fine phone, but the price rise brings it firmly in line with the iPhone 7 and Google Pixel, making it hard to back with a full-throated endorsement. Although, of course, that may change if this year’s other flagships follow suit with a 22% price bump of their own.
Nonetheless, the Huawei P10 is a phone you’d be very happy to have in your pocket, sitting neatly alongside your newly emptied wallet. Here’s why.
Huawei P10 review: Design
The design feels very iPhone 7: minimalist and with plenty of curvy goodness. It deviates in two key areas: first, in a rebuke to its predecessor, shiny metal is out and less glossy soft metal is in. To the touch, it feels more like plastic, although whether that makes it more prone to scratches remains to be seen. Second, it has a headphone jack, which is something most people will still celebrate.
Something that will likely split opinion is Huawei’s decision to move the fingerprint reader. It’s no longer on the rear of the handset, but relocated to the home button, in a reverse of Samsung’s decision to move the Galaxy S8’s from the front to the back.
USB Type-C charging and a microSD tray round up the features and, although our review model is an understated black, you can also take your pick from seven other colours: Ceramic White, Dazzling Gold, Rose Gold, Prestige Gold, Greenery, Dazzling Blue and Mystic Silver. 
Huawei P10 review: Screen
Whichever colour you go for, you’ll be staring at a high-quality screen as soon as you boot it up. To be specific, the Huawei P10 has a 5.1in, 1,080 x 1,920 IPS display, bordered by some pretty thin bezels on either side. That may sound a little disappointing when the Samsung Galaxy S8 pushes out a 1,440 x 2,560 resolution, but text and images look perfectly sharp and crisp. You’ll probably only notice the difference if you get up close and personal with the screen in virtual reality; otherwise, you’ll be perfectly happy.
Closer inspection via our X-Rite colour calibrator shows the screen covers 99.9% of the sRGB colour gamut, with a contrast ratio of 1,219:1. It can hit 497cd/m2 in terms of brightness, meaning you’ll be fine using the device outside, even in the promised summer sunshine that’s just around the corner.
For the price, you may have been hoping that Huawei would have made the jump to AMOLED – sadly, this isn’t the case. Huawei has, in fact, been saving the biggest improvements over the P9 for the innards.

Best Xbox 360 games: The must-play backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games

The Xbox One definitely has some excellent games out there, but even the best Xbox One games can’t stack up against our favourite Xbox 360 games.
The Xbox 360 was Microsoft’s gaming division at its absolute best. The console may have looked a bit weird and been christened with a stupid name, but it definitely had a games library that everyone wanted to play. Now, with the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility, and the impressive improvements to emulation the Xbox One X brings, there’s never been a better time to dive back in and rediscover – or just simply discover – the excellent games available on the Xbox 360.
There are, however, a couple of things you need to remember before diving into playing the best Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One.
Not all Xbox 360 games can be played on the Xbox One
While plenty of games from the Xbox 360 are playable on Xbox One, there are a few strange omissions, so it’s worth checking the list of backwards-compatible titles before buying a game willy-nilly. All the games on our list are 100% backwards-compatible, so at least you don’t have to worry about that.
Backwards-compatible Xbox 360 game may be missing features
Because these games are all old titles, you may find that some features no longer work. Kinect support is patchy, with almost all Kinect-only games not featuring on the list of supported games at all. Online play is also flakey, so don’t rely on online-only, or multiplayer-heavy games working all that well – in fact, in some instances you may discover that online play is no longer supported at all. Games needing special peripherals – like DJ Hero or Rock Band – aren’t supported, and likely never will be.
READ NEXT: The best games for showing off your Xbox One X
Previous Xbox 360 purchases do carry over
If you’ve already bought a set of Xbox 360 games, be the digitally or in physical form, you can use them on your Xbox One. However, even if you install an Xbox 360 disc to your Xbox One, you’ll still need the disc to validate it. You also won’t be able to download a digital version of a game you have on disc unless you pay for it first. Downloading games you’ve previously bought may also not be completely straightforward, in many instances you’ll have to head to the Microsoft Store, log in and then redownload past purchases via push downloads to your Xbox One.
The best Xbox 360 games
1. Lost Odyssey

If anyone ever tells you there’s a better RPG out there on the Xbox 360 than Lost Odyssey, they’re lying. Aside from Final Fantasy in its heyday and the Persona series of games, Lost Odyssey is one of the best JRPGs ever made. Its story is written by Final Fantasy series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, with series composer Nobuo Uematsu also joining to score this brilliant adventure.
In terms of story, it’s your typical tale of a corrupt empire lauding its power, while a small resistance struggles to overthrow it. At the centre of it all is an amnesiac immortal named Kaim who, along with other immortals you discover on your journey, mount an opposition during the age of a magical industrial revolution.
Split over four discs, Lost Odyssey is an absolutely mammoth game with a huge open world to explore. Even though it introduces some brilliant 360-degree battles and active battle mechanics, it’s as close to a classic JRPG as you’ll get in 2018. Even when it was released ten years ago, it was still the best example of the genre you could find.
Buy Lost Odyssey now from the Microsoft Store

Grand Theft Auto V may still be one of the best-selling titles on Xbox One, PS4 and PC every week thanks to GTA Online, but GTA IV on the Xbox 360 is still very much worth revisiting. While not as expansive as GTA V’s multi-character story, Rockstar’s tale of Serbian immigrant and war veteran Niko Bellic trying to find himself a new life in the land of opportunity is a wonderful take on the American dream. As with all entries into the GTA series, it’s big, bold and violent as hell, but it’s also immersive and hilarious, pulling no punches while poking fun at the absurdity of American culture.
Picking up the Complete Edition also gives you both excellent story expansions The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.
Buy GTA IV now from the Microsoft Store
3. The Orange Box

Valve has been away from the game making process for some time (though that may be changing), and if you want to know why that’s such a bad thing, The Orange Box is a great place to start. In one package you get Team Fortress 2, Portal, Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One and Half-Life 2: Episode Two. Okay, so there’s a tinge of disappointment there that the Half-Life series ends on a cliffhanger at the end of Episode Two, but you can’t fault just how fantastic Valve’s creations are.
Chances are Team Fortress 2’s servers no longer work on Xbox 360, but you’ll still have hours of enjoyment playing the fantastic 3D puzzle game Portal and experiencing some of the finest gameplay a shooter has to offer in Half-Life 2. Do yourself a favour and pick this up ASAP.
Buy The Orange Box now from the Microsoft Store
4. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

While not as vast as Skyrim nor with as large a fan following as Morrowind, Oblivion still has a very special place in many player’s hearts as the first Elder Scrolls game they played. Set in the nation of Cyrodiil, Oblivion tasks you with stopping the fanatical Mythic Dawn cult as they open gates to a demonic realm known as Oblivion.
After Morrowind, series developers Bethesda opted for a tighter, more story-driven, experience – something they stepped back from again in Skyrim. Because of this, Oblivion certainly feels more linear, but you can still venture out into Cyrodiil and encounter a wide array of bizarre sidequests and stumble upon incredibly odd occurrences out in the wild.
Picking up the Game of the Year edition of Oblivion also gives you access to its Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles expansions as well as a smattering of extra in-game content that was released as DLC.
Buy Oblivion now from the Microsoft Store
5. Fallout 3

As another absolutely epic RPG from Bethesda, Fallout 3 represents the first time the Fallout franchise had gone to a first-person perspective with a completely open-world to explore. This momentous shift for the series paid off and led to a truly fantastic outing with Fallout 3. Many prefer the more bizarre and challenging Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout 4 has garnered a lot of attention due to a whole set of new gameplay mechanics, but Fallout 3 is where this new chapter of Fallout all started, and it’s definitely worth going back. Plus, Liam Neeson plays your father, so what more could you want?
If you can get your hands on the Game of the Year edition, you’ll also get access to its five expansion packs. This means you can extend the story by playing through Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta.
Buy Fallout 3 now from the Microsoft Store
6. Red Dead Redemption

With Red Dead Redemption 2 on the way later this year, there’s never been a more perfect time to visit – or revisit – the original. Following the tale of former outlaw John Marston as he attempts to clear his debt to society by working with the federal government as a gun for hire, Red Dead Redemption is the video game version of the absolute perfect and iconic western film.
Set in the decline of the American frontier, it focuses on the issues that Rockstar does so well – the American dream. This time, though, it’s not the hyped-up media vision of what the land of opportunity can do, but instead a muted view of how a lack of law, the temptation of riches and the world at your feet can corrupt even the best of men. It’s an absolute must-play and, if you opt for the Game of the Year edition you’ll pick up the brilliant zombie-packed Undead Nightmare in one package.
Buy Red Dead Redemption now from the Microsoft Store
7. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2

There is no arcade experience as good as Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2. If you love chasing high scores, the adrenaline rush of near-misses and pulse-pounding electronic music, Retro Evolved 2 is for you. It’s challenging but incredibly rewarding as you dodge different geometric shapes and blast them out of existence while fighting for a place on the leaderboard. There are a handful of different single-player modes and some four-player multiplayer ones too, but the best feeling is simply playing with friends as you pass the pad trying to better each other’s efforts. You’ll be hooked in seconds.
Buy Geometry Wars Retro Evolved 2 now from the Microsoft Store
8. Spelunky

Think you’re good at platform games? Spelunky’ll set you right. A roguelike platformer, meaning it randomly generates levels with each playthrough, a hilarious death is always around the corner, whether you fall on spikes, get bitten by a vampire or get shot by an angry shopkeeper. Gradually you learn the techniques to keep you alive that bit longer, and finally beating Olmec to win the game is truly a euphoric moment. It’s even better when you do a Hell run to beat Yama, but that’s another story.
There’s an achievement for completing the game in under eight minutes. That’s doable for a pro player, but for everyone else, the achievement for getting over 1,000 deaths is a far more attainable goal.

Galaxy S9 and S9+ battery test: The disappointing truth

The new Galaxy S9 and S9+ are a reflection of their predecessors, the S8 and S8+. This is true to the extent that their batteries have the same capacity: 3000 mAh for the S9 and 3500 mAh for the plus version. So the question is, how has the battery life responded to the increase in power? We analyzed the S9 and S9+ battery in detail.

The autonomy of Samsung’s new flagships leaves something to be desired
Let’s face it, we expected this. By the time the data on the battery capacities of Samsung’s new flagships was leaked, doubt spread like wildfire. The press and users already know what happens when you put a more powerful processor with the same battery. It’s almost the inverse of what happened from the Huawei P9 to the P10, as the P10 increased its battery life, but decreased its power.
But let’s see how the new hardware has affected the battery life in the newest member of the Galaxy S series.

Always On display takes almost 10% of the battery. / © AndroidPIT

The S9 offers 12 hours of autonomy at half gas without any problems
The S9 features a Snapdragon 845 processor in the U.S. (Exynos 9810 in all other regions) along with 4 GB of RAM and 3000 mAh of battery power. We tested the Exynos processor, which gave the S9 and S9+ the best overall performance we have ever tested. With more power than the Galaxy S8 and the same battery, the S9 is able to stay for 12 to 16 hours with just over 4:00 hours of screen time. These are values for daily use with videos (more than hour), games (more than hour), lots of messages and emails, some geolocation, use of specific apps and plenty of internet browsing.
The optimized mode (recommended by Samsung) with automatic brightness and screen resolution at FHD+ was used to obtain these results. When you play a games, the mode changes to optimize the game by increasing the resolution to WQHD+ and the screen brightness by 10%.

This is all the juice that the S9 has with FHD+ resolution. / © AndroidPIT

In somewhat unusual scenarios where I haven’t used the smartphone much, the battery life exceeded 18 hours, but with only about 2 and a half hours of screen time. The most I’ve stretched the screen time while watching movies and videos amounted to nearly 6 hours.
The processor may be more efficient than the previous one, but it is also more powerful, and the power consumption has inevitably increased. The reduction in battery life is significant when we see that the S8 could handle 6 hours of screen time in standard use.
S9+ autonomy is more of the same, 3 hours of screen time with maximum resolution
Both the S9 and S9+ have the same processor, but in the plus version it comes with 6 GB of RAM and a 3500 mAh battery. In terms of battery life, there is no difference in hardware or battery capacity. The S8+ battery basically offers autonomy for a 12-16 hour journey, just like the S9. In this case the difference between it and its predecessor is somewhat more pronounced. The S8+ could reach 5-7 hours of screen time with WQHD+ resolution activated.
As you can see in the screenshots from my colleague Luca Zaninello, screen time doesn’t exceed the 4-hour barrier with WQHD+ resolution. When Luca used the Pixel 2 XL in the sam way, he got 7 hours of screen time.

Capacity (mAh)

Razer Phone
10:43 hours

Nokia 8
9:25 hours

Samsung Galaxy S9
7:15 hours

Does it at least recharge quickly?
Yeah, yeah. The battery can be charged as fast as it gets drained (not the irony). Seriously, at least the fast charge is still as good as ever. In the first few minutes of charging, the percentage goes up quite quickly, but it takes about an hour and a half to reach 100%. One important point is that the charger is as small as they come and is easy to carry, especially if you compare it to The Dash from OnePlus. The following chart compares the charging time to the charging percentage: the more horizontal the curve, the faster the device loads.

At 80% charging begins to slow down, and it takes an hour and a half to reach 100%. / © AndroidPIT

Conclusion: It lasts a day without many luxuries
Samsung’s top-range device can survive a day of use in 2018. But I don’t mean 24 hours, I mean the time from when you wake up until when you go to sleep. And that’s in optimized mode. If you want higher performance or to maximize the screen resolution, the battery life is drastically reduced.
Samsung equips the S9 and S9+ with several energy-saving options that can stretch the stored energy a bit further, but they require sacrificing some premium options like maximum performance or fabulous screen resolution. This is a shame for how much you need to spend on a flagship in 2018.
What do you think of these findings? Would you still be interested in purchasing the Galaxy S9?

How Raya’s $8/month dating app turned exclusivity into trust – TechCrunch

The swipe is where the similarity ends. Raya is less like Tinder and more like a secret society. You need a member’s recommendations or a lot of friends inside to join, and you have to apply with an essay question. It costs a flat $7.99 for everyone, women and celebrities included. You show yourself off with a video slideshow set to music of your choice. And it’s for professional networking as well as dating, with parallel profiles for each.
Launched in March 2015, Raya has purposefully flown under the radar. No interviews. Little info about the founders. Not even a profile on Crunchbase’s startup index. In fact, in late 2016 it quietly acquired video messaging startup Chime, led by early Facebooker Jared Morgenstern, without anyone noticing. He’d become Raya’s first investor a year earlier. But Chime was fizzling out after raising $1.2 million. “I learned that not everyone who leaves Facebook, their next thing turns to gold,” Morgenstern laughs. So he sold it to Raya for equity and brought four of his employees to build new experiences for the app.

Now the startup’s COO, Morgenstern has agreed to give TechCrunch the deepest look yet at Raya, where the pretty, popular and powerful meet each other.
Temptation via trust

Raya COO Jared Morgenstern

“Raya is a utility for introducing you to people who can change your life. Soho House uses physical space, we’re trying to use software,” says Morgenstern, referencing the global network of members-only venues.
We’re chatting in a coffee shop in San Francisco. It’s an odd place to discuss Raya, given the company has largely shunned Silicon Valley in favor of building a less nerdy community in LA, New York, London and Paris. The exclusivity might feel discriminatory for some, even if you’re chosen based on your connections rather than your wealth or race. Though people already self-segregate based on where they go to socialize. You could argue Raya just does the same digitally.
Morgenstern refuses to tell me how much Raya has raised, how it started or anything about its founding team beyond that they’re a “Humble, focused group that prefers not to be part of the story.” But he did reveal some of the core tenets that have reportedly attracted celebrities like DJs Diplo and Skrillex, actors Elijah Wood and Amy Schumer and musicians Demi Lovato and John Mayer, plus scores of Instagram models and tattooed creative directors.
Raya’s iOS-only app isn’t a swiping game for fun and personal validation. Its interface and curated community are designed to get you from discovering someone to texting if you’re both interested to actually meeting in person as soon as possible. Like at a top-tier university or night club, there’s supposed to be an in-group sense of camaraderie that makes people more open to each other.
Then there are the rules.
“This is an intimate community with zero-tolerance for disrespect or mean-spirited behavior. Be nice to each other. Say hello like adults,” says an interstitial screen that blocks use until you confirm you understand and agree every time you open the app. That means no sleazy pick-up lines or objectifying language. You’re also not allowed to screenshot, and you’ll be chastized with a numbered and filed warning if you do.
It all makes Raya feel consequential. You’re not swiping through infinite anybodies and sorting through reams of annoying messages. People act right because they don’t want to lose access. Raya recreates the feel of dating or networking in a small town, where your reputation follows you. And that sense of trust has opened a big opportunity where competitors like Tinder or LinkedIn can’t follow.
Self-expression to first impression
Until now, Raya showed you people in your city as well as around the world — which is a bit weird since it would be hard to ever run into each other. But to achieve its mission of getting you offline to meet people in-person, it’s now letting you see nearby people on a map when GPS says they’re at hot spots like bars, dance halls and cafes. The idea is that if you both swipe right, you could skip the texting and just walk up to each other.
“I’m not sure why Tinder and the other big meeting-people apps aren’t doing this,” says Morgenstern. But the answer seems obvious. It would be creepy on a big public dating app. Even other exclusive dating apps like The League that induct people due to their resume more than their personality might feel too unsavory for a map, since having gone to an Ivy League college doesn’t mean you’re not a jerk. Hell, it might make that more likely.

But this startup is betting that its vetted, interconnected, “cool” community will be excited to pick fellow Raya members out of the crowd to see if they have a spark or business synergy.
That brings Raya closer to the Holy Grail of networking apps where you can discover who you’re compatible with in the same room without risking the crash-and-burn failed come-ons. You can filter by age and gender when browsing social connections, or by “Entertainment & Culture,” “Art & Design,” and “Business & Tech” buckets for work. And through their bio and extended slideshows of photos set to their favorite song, you get a better understanding of someone than from just a few profile pics on other apps.
Users can always report people they’ve connected with if they act sketchy, though with the new map feature I was dismayed to learn they can’t yet report people they haven’t seen or rejected in the app. That could lower the consequences for finding someone you want to meet, learning a bit about them, but then approaching without prior consent. However, Morgenstern insists, “The real risk is the density challenge.”
Finding your tribe
Raya’s map doesn’t help much if there are no other members for 100 miles. The company doesn’t restrict the app to certain cities, or schools like Facebook originally did to beat the density problem. Instead, it relies on the fact that if you’re in the middle of nowhere you probably don’t have friends on it to pull you in. Still, that makes it tough for Raya to break into new locales.
But the beauty of the business is that since all users pay $7.99 per month, it doesn’t need that many to earn plenty of money. And at less than the price of a cocktail, the subscription deters trolls without being unaffordable. Morgenstern says, “The most common reason to stop your subscription: I found somebody.” That “success = churn” equation drags on most dating apps. Since Raya has professional networking as well, though, he says some people still continue the subscription even after they find their sweetheart.

“I’m happily in a relationship and I’m excited to use maps,” Morgenstern declares. In that sense, Raya wants to expand those moments in life when you’re eager and open to meet people, like the first days of college. “At Raya we don’t think that’s something that should only happen when you’re single or when you’re 20 or when you move to a new city.”
The bottomless pits of Tinder and LinkedIn can make meeting people online feel haphazard to the point of exhaustion. We’re tribal creatures who haven’t evolved ways to deal with the decision paralysis and the anxiety caused by the paradox of choice. When there’s infinite people to choose from, we freeze up, or always wonder if the next one would have been better than the one we picked. Maybe we need Raya-like apps for all sorts of different subcultures beyond the hipsters that dominate its community, as I wrote in my 2015 piece, “Rise Of The Micro-Tinders”. But if Raya’s price and exclusivity lets people be both vulnerable and accountable, it could forge a more civil way to make a connection.

Pokken Tournament Adds Blastoise as New Fighter

Bandai Namco Studio’s Pokemon fighting game Pokken Tournament DX has released its second DLC Pack. The expansion content officially introduces Blastoise as the game’s newest fighter.

Blastoise, which has been one of the Pokemon series’ most iconic evolved starter Pokemon since its appearance in the very first games, joins the roster of Pokken Tournament DX as the title’s 23rd fighter. As would be expected given its sturdy frame and the cannons protruding from its shell, Blastoise is described by Nintendo as a “heavy fighter” and appears to have its emphasis placed on ranged attacks, at both close- and long-range.

Not the first Water-type starter Pokemon to appear in Pokken Tournament, Blastoise distinguishes itself from other fighters with its notable defensive armor. In addition, the new 23rd fighter is able to enter a “Shell Fortress Stance,” in which it retreats into its shell and launches itself into its opponent, using that heavy armor as a weapon. The water Pokemon’s Burst Attack is a move called “Destructive Cannon,” an extremely powerful attack which it uses upon transforming into Mega Blastoise, during the Pokemon’s Synergy Mode.

Pokken Tournament DX’s second DLC Pack also adds the Legendary Pokemon Celebi and Mew to the game as assist characters. Mew comes equipped with an ability called “Miraculous Power,” which randomly increases the fighter’s attack or causes those attacks to result in critical hits. Meanwhile, Celebi’s “Time Travel” attack forces the fight into a Phase Shift.

Pokken Tournament DX released in September of last year as a Nintendo Switch port of the original Wii U title Pokken Tournament. This newly-released pack is in fact the second half of the game’s Battle Pack DLC, the first DLC for Pokken Tournament DX. The Battle Pack is available for $14.99 and includes both the new Blastoise pack and the previous pack, which released on January 31st. That first pack added the Pokemon Aegislash as the game’s 22nd fighter, along with Mimikyu and Mega Rayquaza as assist characters.

The Switch port of Pokken Tournament received positive reviews on launch that often rated the title better than its original Wii U release, partially due to the addition of half a dozen new characters. While the game has enjoyed success as an arcade game in Japan, its Switch release seems to have given it a new lease of life, although Nintendo has yet to announce any more upcoming DLC.

Pokken Tournament DX is available on Nintendo Switch.

Shaq held an EDM event, and a shirtless Gronk was there to dance battle

Shaq: “Gronk, you’re gonna get somebody pregnant. Cut that s*** out.”
While you were sleeping on a Saturday morning, Shaquille O’Neal — Hall of Famer and DJ extraordinaire — was busy partying with his friends at his “Fun House” event during Miami Music Week. Guests such as A-Trak, Von Miller, Diplo, and Steve Aoki were on stage, but the real star of the show was none other than Rob Gronkowski.

Ladies and gentlemen… @gronk #shaqsfunhouse #gronk #mmw #wmc #miami #miamimusicweek #epicshit
A post shared by ShaqsFunHouse (@shaqsfunhouse) on Mar 24, 2018 at 1:30am PDT

At one point, Gronk stretched himself from the stage to the crowd, and started thrusting in the air. Shaq scolded him by saying, “Gronk, you’re gonna get somebody pregnant. Cut that s*** out.”

Shaq telling Gronk to stop dancing so he doesn’t get anyone pregnant is the funniest thing you’ll see this morning probably till tweets something stupid
— Icculus The Brave (@FirenzeMike)

Later on, Gronk took his shirt off (of course), and challenged Shaq to a dance battle, although I’m not sure dribbling your shirt under your legs like it’s a basketball counts as a dance move. Both guys would later try to carry each other on their shoulders.

Shaq vs @gronk dance battle you tell me who won

It took this jump from Gronk to finally make it happen.

@gronk showed up to @shaqsfunhouse and it’s getting out of control. Also, @shaq can we ride on your shoulders too?? #shaqsfunhouse #miamimusicweek #miamimusicweek2018 #friendshipgoals

I’m kind of amazed everyone at Shaq’s Fun House had the energy to party from 2 a.m. until sunrise. I wish I had that commitment — instead, I have to fall asleep like a normal per—zzzzzzz…

Boat Race 2018: Cambridge v Oxford in women’s and men’s races – live! | Sport

12.07pm EDT12:07

Weather watch
It’s overcast in west London, as it always seems to be on Boat Race day, but there’s only a light northeasterly breeze for the rowers to contend with. Rain is forecast for later on, but should only be an issue for spectators still out enjoying the festivities long after the race is over.


11.57am EDT11:57

Cambridge are favourites for both of the main races. Three of the women’s crew raced last year, compared to just one from Oxford – Alice Roberts. Sean Ingle caught up with the Oxford native who got into rowing at a state school club:

In 1845, after 15 years of trial runs and squabbles over the best location, crews from Oxford and Cambridge first raced the four-and-a-bit miles from Putney to Mortlake.
Oxford wore dark blue, Cambridge light blue. The records show that Cambridge won by 10 lengths. For the next 170 years, not much changed – the crews rowed west along the Tideway, and a team in blue won.
In 2015, the women’s race was finally relocated to the same stretch of water, meaning we now get two races. Otherwise, the Boat Race(s) remains the same, part of the Saturday springtime trifecta alongside the Grand National and the Cup Final.
The outcome means little to those outside the respective universities, but that doesn’t stop us watching in huge numbers, and rooting for one shade of blue for no particular reason. It’s a tradition. The women’s race starts at 4.30pm GMT, the men’s at 5.30pm.

Alabama tried to help Tennessee’s now-fired AD during his coach search

The Tide sent along their own evaluation of some coaches. Why?
The wild Tennessee football coaching search that took 25 days to complete and led to the firing of the Vols’ athletic director was even weirder than we thought, new documents have revealed. One of the oddest nuggets to emerge so far: It looks like Alabama tried to help.
Rocky Top Insider reports that a Tide administrator sent what looks like a sort of head coach power ranking to then-Tennessee AD John Currie. Here’s what he wrote on Nov. 13, one day after Tennessee fired Butch Jones and got started with its search:

Hello John,
My name is Kyle Vasey and I am an assistant AD for strategic planning at Alabama. Greg Byrne asked me to send you some analysis we performed on head coaches recently. You’ll find an excel spreadsheet which ranks head coaches based on a metric we created called: coaching efficiency. This metric is a weighted score which incorporates various factors such as national championships, final AP ranking, overall win percentage, etc. You’ll also find a pdf file which analyzes coaches based on their previous coaching experience: Power 5 Head Coach, Power 5 Assistant Coach, former NFL head coach, etc
I am happy to answer any questions you might have on the data.
Kyle Vasey

It looks real. Vasey is listed in the Tide’s athletic directory. It’s not clear that Currie responded in any way or even read the Tide’s data.
After a failed attempt to hire Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and near brushes with Washington State’s Mike Leach and NC State’s Dave Doeren, Tennessee fired Currie and replaced him with former coach Phillip Fulmer. The Vols’ new AD ultimately hired a guy from Alabama’s coaching staff, defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.
So, Alabama’s AD had an assistant send the Vols some coach analysis.
According to Rocky Top Insider, what Bama sent was a collection of “efficiency ratings” of 87 head coaching stints at Power 5 schools since the turn of the millennium. The ratings used a weighting system that tied 40 percent of a rating to national championship seasons (sounds a bit biased toward, Bama, huh?), 30 percent to AP Poll top-10 finishes, 20 percent to winning percentage, and 10 percent to “recency factor,” or five-year success.
The top five: Nick Saban at Bama, Urban Meyer at Ohio State, Pete Carroll at USC, Jim Tressel at Ohio State, and Meyer at Florida. That seems about right. A lot of people would’ve reached roughly the same conclusion without doing any number-crunching.
The obvious question: Why would Alabama do this?
A few possibilities jump to mind:

Maybe Byrne, the Alabama AD, was just being a nice guy. People in the same professional field can give each other genuine advice sometimes, even if they’re competitors.
Maybe Alabama was hoping the information in its ratings would steer the Vols toward a candidate who wasn’t on the Tide coaching staff.
Maybe Alabama thought it was embarrassing for the SEC that Tennessee was so bad. The Tide play a crossover game every year, and maybe Saban was tired of the easy competition.

Tennessee did just fine to land Pruitt in the end. It was quite a trip to get there.
