A radiation-proof superhero could make sense of Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in an afternoon. Our champion would pick through the rubble to reactor 1, slosh through the pooled water inside the building, lift the massive steel dome of the protective containment vessel, and peek into the pressure vessel that holds the nuclear fuel. A dive to the bottom would reveal the debris of the meltdown: a hardened blob of metals with fat strands of radioactive goop dripping through holes in the pressure vessel to the floor of the containment vessel below. Then, with a clear understanding of the situation, the superhero could figure out how to clean up this mess. Unfortunately, mere mortals can’t get anywhere near that pressure vessel, and Japan’s top nuclear experts thus have only the vaguest idea of where the melted fuel ended up in reactor 1. The operation floor at the top level of the building is too radioactive for human occupancy: The dose rate is 54 … [Read more...] about Dismantling Fukushima: The World’s Toughest Demolition Project
The original Watch Dogs combined fluid free-running and combat controls with a unique hacking ability to create a fun twist on the traditional third-person shooter, but the game had one glaring flaw: protagonist Aiden Pearce. His personality was a cross between sleep-deprived Batman and a bowl of plain oatmeal, and his motivations were so thin that the narrative was completely anemic. In Watch Dogs 2, new main man Marcus Holloway is designed to be more complex, more interesting, and above all, more fun.The original Watch Dogs let you peer into the lives of a select group of citizens wandering the streets of Chicago, with the “Profiler” took giving you information on a person’s job, salary, and shady activity, and at the beginning of Watch Dogs 2, Marcus learns of the labels he has been designated with.“At the beginning of the game he hacks into the system and we see he’s got a profile, right?” says Marcus actor Ruffin Prentiss. “All these … [Read more...] about ‘Watch Dogs 2’s Marcus Holloway lets his hair down in new trailer
One of the darkest dark comedies of the ’80s is headed to television, but is the world really ready for a Heathers TV series?TV Land has announced plans to develop a series based on the 1988 cult classic about a high school girl whose desire to leave her snobby clique takes a deadly turn when she accidentally kills the group’s leader. The adaptation is expected to take the form of an anthology series set in the modern day, with the show’s protagonist dealing with a new — but similarly vicious — group of popular high school students.Directed by Michael Lehman (Airheads, 40 Days and 40 Nights) from a script by Daniel Waters (Batman Returns, Demolition Man), Heathers cast Winona Ryder in the lead role of Veronica Sawyer, a rebellious teenager whose attempts to separate herself from the elitist “Heathers” — a group of girls all named Heather — takes a dark turn when she becomes involved with … [Read more...] about How very!

As expected, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice followed its impressive — but polarizing — debut with an equally big drop-off at the box office, despite the absence of any significant competition for audiences.Warner Bros. Pictures’ $250 million sequel to Man of Steel added an estimated $52.4 million to its domestic gross during its second weekend in theaters, dropping more than 68 percent from its opening weekend earnings. The week-to-week change is one of the steepest drops for any superhero movie ever released, and confirms many pundits’ predictions for the trouble the film will face in theaters amid all the negative buzz surrounding it.Still, opinions are mixed as to whether the forecast really is all doom and gloom for Dawn of Justice. While some box-office experts have cited the 61-percent drop that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 took that prompted Sony Pictures to put the franchise on hold, others have … [Read more...] about Box office hits and misses: Batman V Superman falls hard while Zootopia cruises
We previously covered science fiction movies and TV shows that eerily manage to predict the future with surprising accuracy. But not every forecast can be quite so perfect.When it comes to guesses about either technological advances, political changes in society, or — heck — sci-fi writers’ sustained belief that the U.S. government is one financial meltdown away from organizing Hunger Games-style events, not all predictions can be winners. Here are eight sci-fi movies and TV shows that nailed their premises to a particular year, and (often thankfully) got it wrong.Soylent Green (1973)Soylent Green is a great 1970s movie starring Charlton Heston. It’s a brilliant blend of pessimistic sci-fi, police procedural, and post-Watergate conspiracy theory. (Spoiler: Soylent Green, the green wafer made of “high-energy plankton,” turns out to be recycled people.)As great a movie as it is, though, its 1999 setting ended up not having too much in common with the … [Read more...] about They can’t all be zingers: 8 absurd sci-fi predictions that never panned out
Security As crops wither in Russia's severe drought, vital plant field bank faces demolitionST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA (7 August 2010) - As the fate of Europe's largest collection of fruit and berries hangs in the balance of a Russian court decision, the Global Crop Diversity Trust issued an urgent appeal for the Russian government to embrace its heroic tradition as protector of the world's crop diversity and halt the planned destruction of an incredibly valuable crop collection near St. Petersburg. Pavlovsk Experiment Station is the largest European field genebank for fruits and berries, and is part of the N.I. Vavilov Research Institute of Plant Industry, where Russian scientists famously starved to death rather than eat the seeds under their protection during the 900-day siege of Leningrad during World War II. At issue is an effort by residential real estate developers to build houses on land occupied by Pavlovsk Station. The take-over would involve bulldozing Pavlovsk's field … [Read more...] about As crops wither in Russia’s severe drought, vital plant field bank faces demolition
