Underwater and aerial segments introduced in this installment make this one of the most varied Kart games yet, and classic courses from past entries add to the fun. A robust online community ensures you'll never lack competition, too. Majora's Mask in 3D might be the third Legend of Zelda game on this list, but we wouldn't dream of not including this excellent remake of the Nintendo 64 classic. When compared to the blockbusters that make up the rest of the Zelda series, Majora's Mask often seems to not quite hold up in comparison, but it's by no means a bad game. On the contrary, it's time specific quests and puzzles are a quite unique addition to the Zelda formula, and continue to work excellently in this handheld format. Being 12 years old, it can be hard for newcomers to break into the action-RPG Monster Hunter franchise, but Generations is by far the most accessible title in recent history.

People who agree with the sentiment want to find out why they’re right in thinking so. People who disagree? They read on because they want to rebut. Big statements are not for the faint-hearted. If you dont want to engage in robust conversation about the ideas you’ve expressed in a post, stay away from this one. Hook #5: Tell a story If you present information in a story format , people immediately pay attention. Using a story as a hook, however, is a pro skill. You can’t kick off with just any story; it has to be relevant. For an ongoing master class in this technique, simply follow Bernadette Jiwa. Here’s a recent example from her blog: Headline: The Unchanging Nature Of Business Hook: It’s a cool November day in 2014, and a young couple pause on a suburban street to snap a selfie with an iPhone 5C. Why does the above statement hook you? Because you want to discover the link between the headline and a young couple taking a selfie.

Wealthy bookworms have a treat in store if they were willing to make the journey to St. Petersburg where one could be one of the world’s most expensive libraries opened. The exclusive interior of Book Capella was captured on Monday, with footage showing the painstakingly decorated furnishings, tapestries and stained glass. In such surroundings for a fee of 7,000 roubles (€113) for a single session you can read some of the more than 5,000 carefully selected volumes of Russian authors of 16th to the early 20th centuries. The high admission fee is justified according to the administration since all the items in the library are precious in their own right though not originals. Each volume is hand made using expensive paper and leather bindings with gold lettering and many are available for sale and in great demand from collectors. SOT Yuri Shestakov, CEO, Alfaret Publishing House (Russian): "We thought that a format of chapel would better suit these unique books, so we wanted a visitor to have a chance to work with the books in the atmosphere of seclusion, in the atmosphere of some sacramental communication with these great books.

The plan envisions an amnesty for the Russian-backed separatists and lifting of the sanctions that U.S. and European Union imposed on Russia. Artemenko also proposed that U.S. took the role of the mediator in the peace talks with Ukraine and Russia, replacing Germany and France in the so-called Normandy format. In his scenario, Ukraine should remain neutral country, refusing from the EU and NATO membership, which contradicts the current course of Ukraine but plays well with Russia’s interests. Russia, however, denied its involvement into the plan. Spokesman of Russian president Vladimir Putin Dmitry Peskov said that Russia wouldnt agree on leasing Crimea from Ukraine since the peninsula already belongs to it. Some in Ukraine thought that Artemenko was too unlikely a figure to be the real author of the plan that made it into the Trump’s White House.

But there is no point extending the negotiations and definitely. The British economy will have to change and adapt on the sooner there is certainty to format change, the better. The British economy has shown itself to be sufficiently flexible to adapt to shocks over the last decade and I am in no doubt it can adapt to this one, provided the government pursues a sensible economic policies of sound money and free trade.

The vast majority of cameras at least, those aimed at beginners and enthusiasts use SD-format memory cards for recording images and videos. Over the years these have evolved to meet the demands of increasingly advanced cameras, from the higher megapixel counts of sensors to faster bursts rates and 4K video recording. A consequence of this is that todays cards bear many different indicators as to how they can be expected to perform, which can make choosing a card confusing to those unfamiliar with the terminology. We're here to demystify the process and help you find the best card for your camera, so here are the main things to consider. Type and brand The first thing to look for is whether a specific card is compatible with your camera. Assuming your camera uses the SD format, it should be compatible with the two main types of cards manufactured today, namely SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) and SDXC (Secure Digital eXtended Capacity).

Circular video may seem like a strange choice, but remember, Snapchat changed the way we take photos like it or not with portrait. Every other app is beholden to landscape mode. Who knows, circular video could be Snaps next rebellious format. Battery life Just like youve become good at using the Snapchat app, youll have to become efficient at using the Spectacles camera, mainly because its small battery life can be a big concern. It takes a healthy number of Snaps 100 videos per charge, according to Snap but we found that transferring video via Wi-Fi greatly reduced that total by more than half. Its best to capture what you see in a single take and move on. That leaves you with about eight minutes of footage per charge. In case thats not enough to get you through the day, Spectacles comes with a battery-charging case.

Video-wise, theres lots to love. The camera is capable of 4K UHD capture at 30p/25p/24p, and while the 1.5x crop factor applied to this (on top of the existing APS-C crop factor) may be seen as a drawback, you could also argue that its an advantage on a camera designed with sports and action in mind. Other video features include ports for both microphone and headphone sockets, as well as a Flat Picture Profile, zebra patterning and Power Aperture Control. You can also record at 60fps, but, as is the case on most other 4K models, only in Full HD quality. Its fairly pricey for an APS-C-based camera, although it currently has the honour of being the cheapest DSLR to offer 4K, so its a no-brainer if you want to take advantage of the format without switching to mirrorless. Read the full review: Nikon D500 The X-T2 was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the past 12 months, and showed just how much more seriously Fujifilm was taking video recording with its X series.
