There's a lot to love about a quick glance at the arcade-combat racing of Onrush. Its blistering speed, giant-jump racetracks, and shrapnel-spewing four-wheelers impress instantly both in screenshot and hands-on modes. This positive first impression absolutely proves the chops of the game's devs at Codemasters Evo, who previously kicked butt in this genre with the Motorstorm series. But for all the game's impressive tech and satisfying slam-to-speed action, Codemasters Evo somehow falls short—incredibly short—of delivering a true successor to the Burnout throne. Both on a macro and micro level, Onrush includes a number of puzzling design decisions and execution bobbles. And the resulting disappointment is downright crushing. Revving to Overdrive In its purest form, Onrush encourages crazy driving for the sake of speed boosts. Much like in the Burnout games, you can steer an opponent's vehicle into a wreck for a huge surge in your "boost" meter, while other high-octane moves … [Read more...] about Onrush game review: Sexy arcade racing in serious need of a tune-up

Facebook has been going through immense scrutiny since the social network cut off Cambridge Analytica and SCL Group from its platform in mid-March, after word surfaced that Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained Facebook user data.

If we entrust the social network with our personal data, what safeguards will it offer us in the age of Russian bots, trolls, fake news, and target marketing. Willow Bay, dean of the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism moderated the session. The panelists included Chris Hughes, Facebook cofounder and co-chair of the Economic Security Project; John Steinberg, founder and CEO of Cheddar; Om Malik, partner at … [Read more...] about Does Facebook need to live up to a social contract?
The theory of evolution by natural selection, first formulated in Darwin's book "On the Origin of Species" in 1859, is the process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable physical or behavioral traits. Changes that allow an organism to better adapt to its environment will help it survive and have more offspring. Evolution by natural selection is one of the best substantiated theories in the history of science, supported by evidence from a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including paleontology, geology, genetics and developmental biology. The theory has two main points, said Brian Richmond, curator of human origins at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. "All life on Earth is connected and related to each other," and this diversity of life is a product of "modifications of populations by natural selection, where some traits were favored in and environment over others," he said. More simply put, the theory can be … [Read more...] about What is Darwin’s Theory of Evolution?
