PlayStation 4 Reviews: Here's What The Critics Are Saying
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Sony's PlayStation 4 is set to hit stores on Friday, Nov. 15, and a big question still lingers for many: Should I buy it? While the PlayStation 3 was by no means a failure, with 80 million units sold in seven years, that number is far off from the success Sony had with the PlayStation 2, which sold more than 150 million units. Can the PlayStation 4 bring back Sony's mojo? Over at Kotaku, Stephen Totilo praises the sleek look of a system that is not only quiet, but also surprisingly portable. The DualShock 4 controller for the PlayStation 4 looks a lot like its predecessors, but incorporates a new multi-touchpad feature along with useful incremental changes like a headphone jack, so your late-night gaming won't bother your roommates. For Matt Peckham at Time, the tweaks offer a well-rounded controller for gamers using the PlayStation 4 -- a system he refers to as "Sony's comeback console." Here's a comparison of the DualShock 3 and the DualShock 4. (Getty Images) Some revi...

Florida A&M requests dismissal of lawsuit filed by family in the hazing death of a drum major
Fox News - over 5 years
Florida A&M University, which has been rocked by a hazing scandal for nearly a year, insists in legal papers filed Monday that it is not to blame for the tragic death last year of drum major Robert Champion. The university maintained that it was Champion, not the school, who bears the ultimate responsibility for his death. Champion died last November after he was beaten by fellow members of the famed Marching 100 band aboard a charter bus parked outside an Orlando hotel. The university asserts that the 26-year-old Champion was a top leader in the band and he should have refused to take part in the hazing ritual. "No public university or college has a legal duty to protect an adult student from the result of their own decision to participate in a dangerous activity while off-campus and after retiring from university-sponsored events," states the lengthy filing by Richard Mitchell, an attorney with the GrayRobinson law firm hired by FAMU....

A giant leap for hospice
Brighouse ECHO - almost 6 years
HIPPERHOLME’S Eve Barraclough, will be scaling new heights to help raise funds for a children’s hospice. Eve has volunteered to climb and abseil down two walls at ROKT climbing gym in a bid to raise £500 for the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, Brackenhall. Eve said it was a worthy cause that was struggling to make money. “I just thought why not raise some money and do something I have always wanted to do all at the same time,” she said. Supported by her colleagues at Mr Pizza in Bethel Street, family and friends, Eve has been trying to come up with an idea to raise money for a vital cause. “It just so happened that at the time I was thinking about it someone came into Mr Pizza with a leaflet and I thought why not do that,” she said. Eve has been to look at the walls she will be climbing and abseiling down but said it didn’t worry her. “I felt quite exhilarated when I saw them and I can’t wait to get on and do it. “I have always been quite active and do a lot of walking.

California Employment and the “Anchor Institution”
Fox & Hounds - almost 6 years
In January of this year, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) announced that it had chosen the City of Richmond as the site for its second campus.  It was a tremendous success for the City, which won over twenty competitors in the region, after a year- long competition. The LBNL is projected to include more than two million square feet of research and office space, housing three main divisions: the Joint Bio Energy Institute, the Joint Genome Institute and the Life Sciences Division. Construction of Phase One of the new facilities begins in 2013, with operations starting in 2016. It is not clear, though, how much the LBNL will impact Richmond’s unemployment (15.1% in December 2011) or how much LBNL will generate revenues for Richmond-based businesses.  In workforce parlance, LBNL constitutes an “Anchor Institution”—a major institution, that is both large employer and large contractor for goods and services.  The history in California and elsewhere indicates that anch...
