Is New 3DS a Sign of Wii U's Future?

Nintendo’s announcement of the New 3DS surprised everyone, but it really shouldn’t have been too shocking. With the exception of the GameCube, Nintendo has frequently altered their hardware during its life cycle. The original DS was supplanted by the DS Lite, and both were rendered obsolete with the release of the DSi and the DSi XL that added a camera and debuted DSiWare games that couldn’t be played on either a DS or DS Lite. In the case of the original Wii, Nintendo left it alone for the most part until the tail end of its life. They released a version of the Wii bundled with New Super Mario Bros. Wii, and took out the GameCube functionality and made the system a far worse overall value. Still, this was a better value than the Wii Mini, which slimmed down the form factor, but gave you composite video-output and eliminated all web features, including the eShop and its vast library of games, and online play. Now, Nintendo finds itself in the familiar position of  doing its best to make a new version of the hardware seem like a must-buy to people who already own a version of the original system. The DSi was a hard sell because it wasn’t a huge power upgrade, but offered up a whole new storefront to use and a camera. The DSi XL came out afterwards and finally addressed an issue peo...  

Painting your house an unusual color

People use them as landmarks when they give directions: When you get to the lime green house, make a left. As an object of mockery: “My eyes! My eyes!” Continue reading below And, sometimes, as inspiration. Certain bold homeowners don’t cringe when they look at the rows and rows of paint chips at the hardware store. No, they think beyond neutral exterior home colors and gravitate toward otherworldly ones. How about Magic Wand or Gumby? Snow Cone Green? For these brave artistes, Cotton Candy isn’t just a carnival treat but, just maybe, a lovely shade for their house. Choosing the right exterior paint is a big decision. Color is the first thing people notice about a home; if selling, it’s the first detail that sways or scares a buyer. “It’s like dating,” said Carol Kelly of Hammond Real Estate in Cambridge. “If a house seems odd on first impression, you won’t give it a second chance.” Kelly said yellow homes tend to sell quickly because most people like that color. What’s not to love about sunny, buttery brightness? “Lighter houses seem more friendly,” she said, and with darker colors, “unless it’s a historic house, it could look scary.” Does the color of your house affect the resale value of neighboring properties? “I think it depends on the area,” Kelly said. “If it’s an artsy community, it doesn’t make a difference.

Formation of Planets Witnessed by Scientists

(Photo : Taken from NASA) Astronomers for the first time have detected a distant young star's dust eruption that might be the result of the collision of large asteroids leading to the formation of a new planet. This might lead to a better understanding of how lanets took shape in our own solar system, scientists said. The star called NGC 2547-ID8, about 1,140 light-years from Earth, was surging with huge amount of fresh dust, scientists said.Like Us on Facebook Huan Meng from the University of Arizona who led the study effort said scientists believed the eruption was caused by two big asteroids crashing into each other. He said that the collision crushed the asteroids to smithereens creating a huge cloud of grains that were the size of fine sand. Young stars have dusty materials encircling them and eventually forming rocky planets. But before the dusty material could turn into planets, the material would clump together to form asteroids that constantly collide with each other. Some asteroids were destroyed because of this process while some transform to protoplanets, large planetary embryos that melted internally. NGC 2547-ID8 is a 35 million years old star that lies in the Vela constellation, a constellation located in the southern sky. Kate Su, one of the researchers, said the group has been tracking down the changes that occurred in the collision. She said that cloud continuously destroys itself by grinding its grain for them to escape from ...  

BYU volleyball: Hamson leads No. 9 BYU past IUPUI

Jennifer Hamson led No. 9 BYU women’s volleyball to a 3-0 (25-19, 25-17, 25-18) sweep against Indiana University-Purdue Indianapolis on Saturday morning in its second match of the Gold and Blue Player’s Challenge. “I thought offensively we had a nice match,” BYU head coach Shawn Olmstead said. “Hannah (Robison) did a great job off the bench. We have a quick turnaround now to prepare against Toledo.” Hamson led the Cougars with 15 kills and seven digs while hitting a .400 clip. Camry Godfrey Willardson added 43 assists, while Ciara Parker contributed a team-high 16 digs. Amy Boswell took control of the block, collecting six to lead the team. Whitney Young got things started for BYU (2-0) in the first set with a kill. IUPUI (1-1) kept the score within a point until a kill from Boswell put the Cougars ahead, 7-5. The Jaguars then took their first lead at 13-12 from a block. BYU followed with a 7-1 rally to retake the lead with a 19-13 advantage. A trio of points from IUPUI got the Jaguars back in the set, cutting into their deficit to three at 20-17. The late run proved to be too short as Hannah Robison and Boswell ended the set at 25-19 for BYU with a block. The two teams traded points to begin the second set until a pair of Hamson service aces brought the Cougars ahead, 6-3. Consecutive kills from Young then extended BYU’s lead to four at 11-7. It was all Cougars from that point as a 7-0 run brought BYU ...  

Will Real Madrid regret selling Angel Di Maria to Manchester United?

Manchester United have completed the signing of Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid, but will the Spanish giants live to regret his departure? The Argentine is the latest recruit in Louis van Gaal’s Manchester revolution, which is yet to actually get started, following Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo to Old Trafford. Di Maria joined from Real Madrid in a £59.7 million deal, a British transfer record, after an impressive World Cup and sensational domestic season with Los Blancos. Pepe believes Real Madrid will cope following Angel Di Maria’s departure It is likely that the Argentine will feature in a central position for the Red Devils, his best position at Madrid. His former club have had a busy transfer window themselves, adding World Cup superstars James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos to their ranks earlier in the summer. The two new Real Madrid boys – plus Luka Modric and Isco – will be looking to replace the mesmeric Argentine, who provided 17 assists for the Spanish giants in La Liga last year. Di Maria leaves a huge pair of boots to fill. Having been awarded the man of the match award during last season’s Champions League final, he leaves a huge void in the side that the other central players will have to step up to and fill. Last season, his staggering 17 assists were unrivalled. The only one, out of the four others, to come close was Madrid’s new boy – then of Monaco – James Rodriguez, who managed 12 assis...  

Radamel Falcao's tweet about 'Real Madrid dream' deleted

Monaco striker Radamel Falcao appears to be close to joining Real Madrid after a Tweet on his official account - which was quickly deleted - indicated the move would "be a dream come true". The Colombian, 28, has been strongly linked to the European champions ahead of Monday's transfer deadline. He was dropped from Monaco's squad shortly before Saturday's draw against Lille after being expected to start. "Dream come true #halamadrid," said a Tweet  which was posted on Saturday. No more messages have appeared on the account since and it is unclear why the Tweet was deleted. This message appeared on Radamel Falcao's official Twitter account before it was quickly deleted The ex-Atletico Madrid striker sat in the stand, alongside sporting director Vadim Vasilyev and his agent Jorge Mendes, as Monaco's mixed start to the French season continued with a 1-1 draw against unbeaten Lille. If Falcao does join Madrid, he will be the second player to leave Monaco for the Bernabeu this summer. Fellow Colombian James Rodriguez, who starred in the World Cup as Falcao missed out with a knee injury, moved to Los Blancos for a fee which could rise to £71m. Madrid have sold midfielders Xabi Alonso and Angel Di Maria to Bayern Munich and Manchester United this week, while their striking options were weakened by Alvaro Morata's move to Italian champions Juventus earlier this summer. ...  

Tissue-Specific Cancers - Repressing The Repressors

In a cell's nucleus, chromosomal DNA is tightly bound to structural proteins known as histones, an amalgam biologists call chromatin. Until a few decades ago, histones were regarded as a nuclear "sidekick," the packing material around which the glamorous DNA strands were wrapped.  In 2012, investigators from multiple research institutions studying the sequence of the genome from cancer patients changed the "chromatin world" when they independently reported that mutations in the gene that encodes histone H3.3 occurred in aggressive pediatric brain tumors. This finding was stunning, as researchers had never before associated histone mutations with any disease, much less a deadly tumor. What followed was a race by cancer researchers worldwide to discover how histone mutations might promote tumorigenesis.  Histone mutations in the regulation of gene expression and human cancers. Image Courtesy of: Shilatifard Lab, Stowers Institute for Medical Research Now a paper from a laboratory at the Stowers Institute of Medical Research reports the first animal model created to assess the molecular effects of two different histone H3.3 mutations in the fruit fly Drosophila. The study in Science, led by Investigator Ali Shilatifard, Ph.D., strongly suggests that these mutations actually could drive cancer and identifies interacting partners and pathways that could be targeted for the treatment of cancer. Molecular biologists categorize these mutations as "K-to-M", because a normal...

Has Falcao confirmed Real Madrid move?

The Colombian tweeted that he has completed a "dream come true" transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu, although he hastily deleted the message without explanation Monaco striker Radamel Falcao appears to have confirmed that he is joining Real Madrid via Twitter, potentially ending speculation about his future.The Colombian triggered suggestions he was imminetly leaving Stade Louis II when he was inexplicably left out of Leonardo Jardim's matchday squad for their 1-1 draw with Lille on Saturday.Reports were rife about where the ex-Atletico Madrid man might be departing Ligue 1 for, with Manchester City, Juventus, Arsenal and Real Madrid all named as contenders in the chase for the 28-year-old.But Falcao looked like he had ended speculation over his future by declaring his loyalties to Carlo Ancelotti's men - branding the move to the Santiago Bernabeu a "dream come true".However, he hastily deleted the tweet for unknown reasons, although the striker's confirmation was there for the world to see before its quick deletion.
