Crunch Time is Destroying Video Game Designers/Developers

Filed under Uncategorized

Most of the everyday person loves them and tend to struggle to put them down, video games that is.

The normal everyday video game player doesn’t know the entire backstory of how video games are designed and created. But the reason for them to be released faster and have thousands more of in-game updates than ever before is because of the overworking of the developers.

For some tasks that the developers give themselves, it is by choice. But when people are demanding a certain update in the game, it is hard to refuse that work to please their fans/followers.

Brett Douville, a veteran game programmer, said he once worked so long and for so hard that he found himself temporarily unable to step out of his car.

All workplaces have their stresses and negatives but when it comes to your personal health, it is another level that needs to be addressed by management.

Historical Collision in Space has Astronomers Rushing to their Telescopes

Filed under Uncategorized

It was announced Monday that for the first time in history, the collision of two neutron stars occurred 130 million light-years away sending fireworks from the explosion across the universe.


The ripple caught by astronomer’s antennas sent them rushing to their telescopes to attempt to witness this historic moment.


Astronomers believe that this kind of explosion is what gave the earth gold, silver, and uranium. So you can thank the largest firework show in the universe for all the materials found in your wedding band!


These stars’ masses are as great as the sun but compact into a radius of just 12 miles long; about the size of Manhattan.


Neutron stars are the densest form of stable matter. So much so that if you add any more mass over a certain limit it would collapse into itself creating black hole.


Scientists have yet to find what that limit is, but after this historical finding I’m sure they are not too far behind on figure that out, as they learn something new every day.

Rappers Voice their Opinion the Best Way They Know How

Filed under Uncategorized

Washington Rapper/Recording Artist Macklemore opened his concert in Arizona by bashing President Trump. Macklemore, a vocal non supporter of Trump, gave a speech during the concert on immigration and acceptance.

He says, “Everyone should be welcome here no matter which side of the ‘line’ you stood on.”

Macklemore also stated in his speech that he believes that everyone, no matter where you are from, should be able to have to opportunity to live the American Dream.

This act by the Washington rapper comes just days after World renowned rapper Eminem came out with his 5 minutes cypher bashing Donald Trump. It has been all over the news, talk shows, and social media about people’s thoughts and opinions.

A lot of celebrities have chimed in and backed Eminem up on this thoughts including Snoop Dogg, Macklemore, and other rappers.

It is a toss up for how Trump will respond but I am sure it will be controversial.

NCAA on the Hot Seat for Fraud Allegations

Filed under Uncategorized

The NCAA has been hot on the radar as of the late fraud scandal that has leaked from an unknown ex player that has Louisville head coach Rick Pitino in more trouble.

Already under wraps for other allegations including violations tied to the hiring of escorts to have sex parties and strip for recruits and players.

The new allegations that have risen are those of coaches taking bribes from agents of well known brands to funnel the players to signing with the agents in order to bring them to that school as well as future plans of signing the players to those brands as they went pro.

Coach Sikes, Morningside College Men’s Basketball Coach, says “This is just the tip of the iceberg…there’s a lot of guys shredding documents and cleaning out file cabinets trying to get rid of a paper trail.”  

There is going to be a lot more coming for this scandal. A lot aimed towards whether or not college athletes at the high level should be paid or have something chance where it helps them out financially.

Brad Roling, a good friend and fellow high school athlete of mine says, “I don’t think student athletes should be paid directly, but I believe that financially something should be done to help out student athletes so we don’t run into this situation again and prevent future allegations.”

There is a lot more to come with these issues and as Coach Sikes said this is just the tip of the iceberg and there are some deals that need to be figured out because this will be a huge hit on the NCAA. The players, and Pro Athletes as well will be thrown under the bus and a lot of money will be thrown around.

My take on this is that the companies that bribed the players should take a hit as well as the agents that conned them into taking the money. More than likely, there will be a few players that are going to be involved.

And speaking for majority of high school and college athletes I have talked to; if anybody was in their position they would do the exact same thing that those players did and take the deal. That is easy money in their pocket. The kind of money and deals that they have never dreamed of having.

So do I think anything big is going to happen, probably not. But it will have an effect on the future of big school recruiting and sponsorship of athletes.

The Seahawks Keep the Strangest Streak in NFL History Going.

Filed under Uncategorized

Since Pete Carroll took over the head coaching job in 2010 the Seahawks have done what no other team in the NFL has ever done…8 years in a row.

The streak is that, since 2010, the Seahawks have had a score each year that no team has had in the NFL.

  • 2010—Seahawks 36, Cardinals 18
  • 2011—Seahawks 36, Giants 25
  • 2012—Seahawks 58, Cardinals 0
  • 2013—Seahawks 43, Broncos 8 (Super Bowl XLVIII)
  • 2014—Seahawks 36, Packers 16
  • 2015—Seahawks 39, Steelers 30
  • 2016—Seahawks 37, 49ers 18
  • 2017—Seahawks 46, Colts 18

You may not think of it as a big deal but as for Pete Carroll, he thinks “’s freaking awesome!”

It is partial credit to the great defense the Seahawks have creating safeties and a couple key missed field goals and extra points.

But no matter how the Seahawks achieve these scores. They are going to enjoy it until the streak is gone. But we’ll have to wait until next year to see if that streak doesn’t continue thanks to the 46-18 win over the Colts this past Sunday night.
