(FARINDOLA, Italy) Rescue crews located up to eight people alive in the kitchen of an avalanche-crushed hotel on Friday, an incredible discovery that boosted spirits two days after the massive snow slide buried around 30 people in the resort. Video released by rescuers showed a boy, wearing blue snow pants and a matching ski shirt, emerging from the structure and crews mussing his hair in celebration. Next was a woman with a long ponytail wearing red snow pants. Brava Brava! the rescuers cheered. The survivors appeared fully alert and walking on their own. Both were helped down to a stretcher for the helicopter ride out. This first news has obviously repaid all the rescuers' efforts, deputy interior minister Filippo Bubbico said. First word of the discovery came at around 11 a.m. (1000 GMT; 5 a.m. EST), news met with exhilaration after at least four people had already been found dead since Thursday.

Latin American Minerals Inc (CVE:LAT) has hit 10 grams per tonne gold over 0.5 metres at the Paso Yobai project in Paraguay. The result comes from one of two holes drilled at Paso Yobai that intersected mineralisation. Results from another two holes that were released at the same time came up blank, but this current drill programme is for 10,000 metres so there is plenty more scope for success. Already, trenching, drilling, open pit excavation and bulk sampling have intersected gold mineralization over a 3,000 metre long trend and multiple ore shoots have been identified in this work. The present drilling was situated to test at depth the gold mineralization sampled in Trench 6, located on this trend. "The Company has a long list of targets ready for drilling, which have been identified though surface sampling and geophysical methods,” says chief executive Basil Botha.

Nintendo Square Enix has been re-releasing Dragon Quest games on the DS and 3DS for a decade now, if you can believe it—beginning with 2007’s Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen , the developer has released five remade mainline DQ games for Nintendo’s dual-screened handhelds (plus Dragon Quest IX , a new title first released on the DS). Up until now, all of those remakes have been upgrades from the originals—the DS was more powerful than the NES and the SNES and the 3DS is more powerful than the original PlayStation. Square Enix used the extra power to give all the games a shiny new coat of paint in addition to the streamlined gameplay and new content. The 3DS version of Dragon Quest VIII , released in the US today, is different. Rather than being a ground-up redesign of the game as Dragon Quest VII was, VIII is more-or-less a straight port of the PS2 original with a few changes stacked on top.

If the tech companies aren't careful, we'll get bored of being told everything is the best new thing and no one will buy anything until it's been proven. We'll end up doing what our parents did, nursing TVs and audio equipment through 20 or 30 years, because we know the replacements won't have the same shelf lives -- and the people that made them will say the one they released 11 months ago was rubbish, anyway, because here's a better one that's a few notes more, and you can order it today. 10 failed smartphone "innovations": projectors, 3D screens, gamepads and more

Trump. While much attention has been focused on Trump’s access to the nuclear launch codes and the President’s Daily Brief—the classified intelligence report delivered inside a locked briefcase each morning to the Oval Office—those represent only a tiny sliver of the massive top-secret universe that Trump personally will suddenly be privy to. He will have the ability to see inside the most sensitive and covert programs run by the United States and its allies around the world; he will have access to surveillance tools, covert payrolls and personal secrets about foreign leaders. He will know about blacked-out special forces raids and UFO-like spy planes, the next-generation cyberattacks that would come in the opening minutes of a new war, and the dozens of secret classified procedures and laws written down by his presidential predecessors. He’ll even be first in line for some mundane but important things: As president, Trump will be one of just four senior officials to learn sensitive market-moving economic data from the Labor Department up to 12 hours before it is released publicly.
