Sure, you can now get Mario on your mobile but if you'd rather have the full Super Mario experience you're still going to have to turn to the 3DS. It's clear this is still something that has high levels of appeal as Nintendo has continued to see high sales figures for the 3DS, especially after the release of Pokemon Go had players flocking back to the mainline titles. It is, however, likely that we're seeing the end of the 3DS' heyday as Nintendo prepares to launch its console/handheld hybrid, the Nintendo Switch , but this doesn't mean we'll see the end of the 3DS entirely . Thanks to its large install base and the incredibly successful launch of the newest Pokmon titles, Pokmon Sun and Moon , it's clear the 3DS still has a lot to offer. No matter what kind of game you like to play, you'll find something to suit your tastes on the 3DS, and you won't be able to find many of the titles anywhere else.

"I just emailed Joshua," she says. "I had never met him, but he emailed me back and said he wasn't sure. I had already completed the tune I wanted him to play on, so I sent him the score and a demo. He replied right back and said, 'This is beautiful and challenging.'" Indeed Redman's buoyant and bold voice uplifts the gentle-to-riveting title track. Hazama's musical introduction to Goldstein came from his producing and arranging Michael Brecker's 2003 Quindectet recording Wide Angle s, one of her favorite albums. While she was working as an arranger/orchestrator with Ryuichi Sakamoto, she discovered that he had worked with Goldstein and knew him well. So she emailed him and sent him a copy of her first album. He replied that it was great and that he was now a fan. He sent her a link to a YouTube song he performed on which reminded her of a song, the emotive "Under The Same Moon," that she had written when she was 20 but never recorded.

Alt Text Gene Cernan Cost, danger and changing technology put an end to the legendary Apollo missions In Depth Tuesday, January 17, 2017 - 1:16pm Astronaut Gene Cernan has died at the age of 82. One of only three men to twice walk on the moon, his 1972 visit as commander of Apollo 17 turned out to be Nasa's last manned voyage to Earth's nearest neighbour. "We leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return with peace and hope for all mankind," he said at the time. However, we did not return at all. After Neil Armstrong took his "giant leap for mankind" in 1969, there was a widespread expectation that a permanent human colony would not be far behind, says CNN's Dave Gilbert. "Throughout the 1970s, children's magazines showed artists' conceptions of the moon bases that would be built," he writes. But the futuristic lunar outpost of popular imagination never materialised.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico This week we come down from the strong Cardinal Grand Cross Full Moon in Cancer last Thursday January 12. But only one “leg” of the Grand Cross has left the powerful configuration, that being the Full Moon in Cancer. The 3 legs that remain make a Cardinal T-square formation which has us pulled in 3 different directions instead of 4. It is comprised of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Aries. It will continue to be effective until late April, when the”orb” or distance between the planets gets too wide to be pertinent. This T-square, still a very important configuration, will affect everyone to some degree; but its greatest impression will be with people who have planets in the middle to late degrees of cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. This emphasis on cardinal signs, which are the signs at the beginnings of seasons, at the Solstices and Equinoxes, suggests we are moving into important times of New Beginnings.
