The Cornishman
a day
Ever fancied trying your hand at swashbuckling like a pirate or shooting a musket like Captain Sharpe? New courses in Cornwall can teach you a range of dramatic combat techniques. If you are more of a Captain Jack Sparrow, you can take part in a weekend of workshops on board a tall ship in Falmouth which will teach unarmed combat or fighting with broadswords, single swords and cutlasses. But if you are more interested in the Napoleonic Wars, then you can try out musket handling and firing at...

Multiplayer is fast and fierce thanks to the addition of the Exo suit, and the single-player campaign resonates with everyone scared of another international meltdown. Call of Duty has had its foibles, but Advanced Warfare isn't one of them. From GamesRadar's review: "Franchise fatigue be damned. Sometimes a game comes into a series and does things a little bit differently. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare aims to change the formula for the better with a new setting and futuristic tech, and it succeeds with several game-changing features." Read the full Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare review on GamesRadar Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag AC IV: Black Flag is a funny thing. It's both a return to form for the series, and bit of a hard left into full-on pirate mode. Do all the classic Assassin's Creed bits, leaping from above onto unsuspecting prey, then hop aboard your frigate and broadside an enemy ship with a volley of cannon fire.

It begins with a box . Fiddling with dials and switches causes things to spring to life elsewhere, and you soon find boxes within the boxes, layers unravelling before you; it's the videogame equivalent of Russian dolls meets carpentry, as breathed into life by a crazed inventor. The Room's curious narrative and fragments of horror coalesce in follow-up The Room Two , which expands the 'boxes' into more varied environments a séance room; a pirate ship. Movement remains restricted and on rails, but you're afforded a touch more freedom as you navigate your way through a strange clockwork world. The Room Three is the most expansive of them all, featuring intricate, clever puzzles, as you attempt to free yourself from The Craftsman and his island of deranged traps and trials. Get all three games, and play them through in order, preferably in a dark room when rain's pouring down outside for best effect.

One is U-Ming Marine Transport, Taiwan’s largest dry-cargo shipowner, which said 10 of its large capesize-class ships have taken this detour since the end of 2016. “All our ships sailing from Australia to China and North Asia are now sailing via east of Philippines — it is a proactive action to prevent pirate attacks,” said U-Ming’s president, Ong Choo Kiat. Other firms avoiding the Sulu and Celebes seas are EasternPacific Shipping, Diana Shipping, and Anglo-Eastern Ship Management. Sailing east to avoid the Sulu Sea adds about half a day to a 14-day voyage from Port Hedland, Western Australia’s main iron ore export terminal, to northern Asia. Shippers said that while the extra costs of around $300 per day for fuel on each journey were not huge, the added costs would mount up over time, another blow to an industry already grappling with a period of extremely low profit margins.

Have you seen the Geico ad with the talking parrot? A 19th-century ship is boarded, the captain surrounded by pirates. The leader shouts, Lets feed him to the sharks, (pirate cheers and swords held high) and take all his gold (more cheers). The parrot repeats these lines, and adds, and hide it from the crew. Theyre all morons anyway. The voiceover at the end of the Geico ad explains, If youre a parrot, you repeat things. Thats what you do. If youre a voice-activated Internet of Things (IoT) device, you dont repeat things, but you may transmit them. Voice-activated IoT devices (which, for this piece, includes smartphones and televisions) are always there, just like that pirates parrot. You know the services: Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana and Amazons Alexa.

The asymmetrical maps, team-based base destruction and "hero" system are all intact. Paragon is a MOBA for newcomers, and best of all, it's free-to-play. 36. Puzzle Pirates Most MMOs let you say what you want in your own native tongue. Not Puzzle Pirates . This adorably decorated MMO, like its title suggests, is about solving puzzles as a pirate. And, rather than asking your first mate, "What's up?", you're encouraged to use phrases like "Yarr, matey!" Otherwise, you might end up walking the plank. In the game, you can join a crew, improve your rank and more all while speaking pirate lingo and developing new relationships. Fundamentally, you're on the search for currency from enemy ships known as "pieces of eight." However, less expected is that in order to achieve that, you'll need to solve puzzles in order to sail and protect your crew's ship.

Later levels have you battle three-dimensional shapes, switches, and tiles that rotate; and despite the minimal aesthetic and noodly audio, it never really gets old. The game is, however, quite short - a few hours and you'll probably be done.

Mom once complained about my "creepy friends." Granted, vampires are a bit over the top. But they had nothing on Trump's cabinet . What is this, a pirate convention ? Once, on a cruise ship, I saw a gay AA meeting listed under "Friends of Dorothy." Now we have a virtual coup by Friends of Vlad. Sorry, Dorothy (and Bill W.), but I'm spiking my eggnog. Addendum: In response to a reader who took one of my lines seriously, I offer the following clarifications in a spirit of journalistic accuracy and Yuletide reconciliation: I do not run a meth lab. I do not care about the Kardashians. My college professor friend was not drinking cappuccino. Margaret O'Brien is not Judy Garland's little sister. I do not care how fattening or expensive pumpkin seed brittle is, because it is delicious and I can buy three tins of it with what they're paying me for this column, though I am not that gluttonous.

We still need the safety of our own vine and fig tree - only today those vines and that tree are under threat by the incoming government. Beware of these little men with large hatchets. We are being offered a rogues gallery of greed and ignorance for a cabinet, to be headed by a man who should be in command of a pirate ship, not the United States government. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Brexit vote won't change Xmas spending plans The EU referendum result has had no effect on the majority of shoppersChristmas spending plans, according to new data. The average UK adult expects to spend £280 on festive gifts this year, according to a survey by PwC of 2,000 shoppers across the country. More than two-thirds of adults67% – said that Brexit uncertainty had no impact on their spending habits. Quote of the dayRates cut would hurt householders "You're the captain of a pirate ship and you find a chest of gold. Your crew gets to vote on how the gold is divided up. If fewer than half of the pirates agree with you, you die. How do you recommend apportioning the gold in such a way that you get a good share of the booty but still survive." The question that Google boss Eric Schmidt struggled to answer at a business/culture conference.

This is what he was asked: “You’re the captain of a pirate ship and you find a chest of gold. Your crew gets to vote on how the gold is divided up. If fewer than half of the pirates agree with you, you die. How do you recommend apportioning the gold in such a way that you get a good share of the booty but still survive.” “Let’s do the math…if half die,” Schmidt began. “No, if I dieNo, if they dont like me, I die.” Image 1 of 10 “This is, like, a really bad question,” he continued, as the pirates sharpened their swords. Ultimately though, his answer was pretty good. “It seems to me that if more than half are happy, I survive. I propose, that we give 49% of the pirates stock in internet companies, and 51% get the gold.” Depending on the internet companies in question, the pirates might be happy enough with that arrangement.
