This may be the first time you're hearing about Battlegrounds . The game just released on Steam Early Access and was created by the same modder who made Arma 3 's "Battle Royale" and consulted on the super-popular H1Z1: King of the Kill . That modder, Brendan PlayerUnknown" Green, is finally working on his own standalone game alongside developer Bluehole Battlegrounds . Battlegrounds , just like PlayerUnkown's other projects, is a battle royale-style game where players enter an environment, gather weapons, armor and other items and fight to the death think of it like a competitive survival shooter game H1Z1: King of the Kill is the most popular game in this genre it even has a professional scene where players compete in tournaments for hundreds of thousands of dollars but Battlegrounds may already be on its way to usurping H1Z1 's throne.

Blair was more than happy to give way to the massed ranks of Tory backwoodsmen, for whom tearing apart a fox was a quintessential British custom. It was Kaufman who, because he came from the Labour Right, ensured that Blair kept to Labour’s manifesto commitment. At the 2004 Labour Party conference, Kaufman was ambushed by about 200 snarling members of the so-called Countryside Alliance. The protestorsanger at being denied their sadistic pleasures manifested itself in the traditional anti-Semitism of the Tory countryside brigade. As Kaufman later recalled : Never have I seen faces so contorted with hatred and loathing and, as I find with the fox-hunting issue and the fair amount of correspondence I have received, there is a vein of anti-Semitism in it. He added: But no baying mob out there, trying to tear the clothes off my back and steal my briefcase and hit me, is going to stop me arguing my case.

Rear-wheel steering remains for the vastly improved agility that it brings, but with a completely different calibration of the response curve. With no rear wing a new diffuser has been fitted at the rear to help stability at high speeds on the autobahn. Video of Porsche 911R at 200mph What’s it like to drive? With less sound deadening, the engine seems to fill the cabin beautifully when you start it up, neither too loud nor too quiet and with a deeper more guttural noise than an RS. Stop at some traffic lights and you can hear the reassuring rattle of the single-mass flywheel. The manual gearbox means you often opt not to shift, relying on the torque, enjoying the deep sound of the mid-range. Rev the wonderful 4-litre motor all the way to the limiter though and you are treated to the most glorious tearing, yowling, slightly metallic top end. It is a furious rush.

She showed that the people in East Aleppo were not under total siege from Syrian government troops, but were in fact being held hostage by western-funded and armed mercenaries and internationally recognised terrorists who adhere to extremist ideologies and are hell bent on tearing Syria to shreds, which is of course works in lock-step with their sponsors in the corridors of power in Washington, London, Paris, Riyadh and Ankara (and others). The event..... Connolly writes: One Syrian Solidarity UK (SSUK) member stood up and asked why the audience found it funny that hospitals were being bombed and medical workers killed. He then asked Beeley whether she supported hospitals being bombed, as she didn't seem to be bothered.' Connolly then says that the protester was removed in a chokehold by several of the organisers. She then claims two more of her cohorts, presumably from SSUK were also removed in the same manner .

Since even before the Nintendo Switch came out, reports have been circulating about the left Joy-Con losing connectivity with the console while in docked mode. Now one enterprising YouTuber has claimed to have found a fix , but be warned - its not easy. The YouTuber, Spawn Wave , found the fix by tearing apart the controller, and discovered that the right Joy-Con (ie the working one) has a detachable antenna, while the lefts (ie the problem child) is printed on the circuit board directly. It seems that this PCB mounting of the antenna is causing its connectivity issues, so by extending the antenna with a piece of soldered wire, Spawn Wave claims to have solved the connectivity issues. Don't try this at home When Xbox 360 consoles were experiencing red rings of death, home repair kits became quite common.

The Nintendo Switch has only been available for a few days but iFixit has already posted a video tearing down the console so that we can see exactly whats inside. From the dock, to the the individual Joy-Con controllers to the Nintendo Switch tablet itself, theres plenty to see in this teardown. It looks like the tablet is the most complex part of the console with the most parts to take out and the most tiny screws to contend with. First bit of good news: upon opening the tablet the iFixit crew say it looks like the Switchs priorities are battery and cooling. Modular make up The Switch packs a 16 Wh battery which is significantly bigger than the 5.6 Wh replaceable battery in the Wii U GamePad. To stop that extra beefy battery overheating and burning your hands theres a metal plate which acts as a heat sink, channeling heat from the heat pipe to the rear case and preventing concentrated hot spots.

We've heard a lot about the Tesla Model S over the last few years, it's a vehicle with a habit of being newsworthy. And as a fast luxury electric saloon car with a range of over 300 miles per charge depending on the model, its publicity is deserved, and that's before we've even mentioned autonomous driving driver-assist. Even the best of the competing mass-produced electric cars of the moment look inferior beside it. Tesla famously build their battery packs from standard 18650 lithium-ion cells, but it's safe to say that the pack in the Model S has little in common with your laptop battery. Fortunately for those of a curious nature, [Jehu Garcia] has posted a video showing the folks at EV West tearing down a Model S pack from a scrap car, so we can follow them through its construction. The most obvious thing about this pack is its sheer size, this is a large item that takes up most of the space under the car.

Croatian philosopher Srecko Horvat is going on a journey across Europe, searching for the connections between the crises he believes are tearing the continent apart. Unemployment, debt and an influx of refugees are often pointed to as the causes of a European identity crisis. But, Horvat asks, could they in fact be the results of it? He travels from Idomeni in Greece, where in 2015 refugees fleeing war and poverty entered Europe, to the dockyards of the Greek port of Pireaus, where workers' unions say they are fighting a new kind of privatisation, and from Romania, where people are fighting to protect their forests from international investment firms, to the City of London. Along the way, he argues that the real cause of Europe's identity crisis stems from the trauma of it colonising itself. "I think Idomeni is the best metaphor for what's happening in Europe today," he reflects.

Whenever I end up with a new vehicle I ultimately end up sticking in a new GPS/Receiver combination for better sound quality and a better GPS. I am quite at home tearing into a dashboard as I was licensed to install CB radios in my teens as well as being the local go-to guy for 8-track stereo upgrades in the 70’s. I have spent a portion of my life laying upside down in a puddle on the car floor peering up into the mess of wires and brackets trying to keep things from dropping on my face. If you remember my post on my Datsun 280ZXT , I laid in that same position while welding in a clutch pedal bracket while getting very little welding slag on my face. I did make a note that the next time I convert a car from an automatic to a manual to do so while things are still disassembled. Swapping out a factory radio usually involves choosing whether to hack into the existing factory wiring wire-by-wire, or my preference, getting a cable harness that mates with the factory plug and making an adapter out of it by splicing it to the connector that comes with the new radio.

[Steve1001] disassembles the unit with a knife, drills a new hole, and adds an additional wire. The process isn't complicated but seeing how its done might keep you from tearing up one in the disassembly attempt. Finding a local source for crystal earpieces might be tough, but piezo speakers are common on things that make beeps like motherboards or microwave ovens. Hackaday's own [Steven Dufresne] shows how to convert one into a workable crystal earpiece in a video below. We've seen him make other homemade versions , too. Of course, big time crystal radios have amplifiers and can use conventional speakers and earphones. Filed under: radio hacks , repair hacks
