Top 5 3D Games For The Original Nintendo DS (& 5 Worst)

The Nintendo DS was a great portable gaming system, but like any console, it had it’s of hits and misses. This is the best and worst it had to offer. While the DS was fairly limited in terms of graphical quality, underestimating this beast of a system would fail to highlight the many 3D games that the original DS has to offer. Most big games like Pokémon were restricted to 2D, but many franchises saw the three-dimensional opportunities the DS had to offer. They aren’t the most common games for the platform, but there do exist a number of beloved 3D games, as well as some universally hated ones. Which of these games are infamous for booming success or for colossal disappointment? Following the success of its GameCube predecessor of being enslaved by a Tanooki in a town full of anthropomorphic animals, you can now be a slave to crippling debt on the go! Animal Crossing is an absolutely perfect fit for mobile devices, with its pick up and play nature and simplistic gameplay being able to take full advantage of any hardware limitations. This game would set the groundwork for future titles like Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which is now one of the best selling games for the ...

Greg Glassman’s Easy Health Care Fix: More CrossFit

It’s a hot August morning in Madison, Wisconsin, and Greg Glassman is sipping iced tea in an air-conditioned, glass-walled room perched above a preternaturally green field. Below, two dozen ripped athletes are hanging by their feet from bars, performing upside-down sit-ups in sync while Kendrick Lamar’s “Loyalty” blasts from the speakers. The sun-warmed bleachers are a blur of taut and bulging skin, fans already drinking beer and getting rowdy above signs that declare this event the “Ultimate Proving Grounds for the Fittest on Earth.” It’s the 2019 CrossFit Games, the annual competition that brings together athletes from around the world to prove themselves worthy of this title. Here, the high-intensity workout regimen happening in nondescript gyms across the globe becomes a sport. And for the millions of CrossFit enthusiasts, it’s a big deal. Glassman, the 63-year-old founder of this fitness phenomenon, doesn’t seem to think it’s such a big deal. From the glass room, the CrossFitters—now pushing massive, weighted carts across the field in teams of four—are hard to see clearly, and the TV meant to broadcast the games isn’t working. Glassman is unperturbed. He has turned his back...

Westhampton Architectural Glass Fashions Custom, Upmarket Products In New Speonk Space

Tucked away on Speonk Riverhead Road, along a vegetative yet industrial strip, Westhampton Architectural Glass has spent the last year turning sheets of glass into luxury doors and windows seen in some of the largest residences on the East End. The company opened its showroom late last month in the entrance of its 36,000-square-foot building, greeting visitors with models of bronze pivot doors, 19-foot-tall sliding doors with glass weighing more than 2 tons and folding knee louvers that activate with the flip of a switch. Visitors will have to take a few steps back to view the products’ full grandeur. Owners Paul Siller and Bob Busking opened the new Speonk space in March 2018 as a means of consolidating their three former locations in East Hampton, Westhampton and Flanders that they operated different departments out of since 2008. They unveiled the showroom with a grand opening and open houses throughout the last week of June, giving a tour of their new facility to over 100 builders, contractors and architects who attended. For some, that was their first time learning about the company’s services. “It was very well received,” Mr. Siller said of the grand opening. “People were ...

2020 Audi Q5 plug-in hybrid commands a premium over standard SUV

The starting price is almost $10,000 more than an entry-level Q5, but there’s always the federal tax credit to help out. The Audi E-Tron took the honors as the brand’s first battery-electric car, and now Audi has its first plug-in hybrid, the 2020 Audi Q5. The Audi Q5 plug-in hybrid doesn’t get a fancy surname or anything, but it does promise 20 miles of zero-emissions driving. Thanks to a 14.1 kilowatt-hour battery and electric motor paired with a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine, drivers should see an estimated 65 miles per gallon equivalent. It won’t exactly be an inexpensive plug-in, however. Prices will start at $53,895 after a $995 destination charge, Audi announced today, or $9,600 more than an entry-level Q5 without the plug-in gear. With the 14.1-kWh battery, the Q5 plug-in will be eligible for a federal tax credit up to $6,712. The credit remains based on battery size, with the full amount still $7,500 for plug-ins and EVs with larger batteries. With the credit, the price drops to $47,183. The hybrid powertrain provides a combined output of 362 horsepower and 396 pound-feet of torque, which is far more than the standard Q5. Regular models make do wi...

LED technology reduces environmental impact of industrial facility lighting

Home » Archive » Topics » Energy Management & Lighting » Benefits of LED Technology in Industrial Facilities Over the past decade, LED lighting has proven to be a simple, cost-saving method for manufacturers to reduce their long-term impact on the environment and minimize the burden of hefty electricity expenses. Despite this, industry estimates suggest that 80-90% of the roughly 150 million lighting units installed in industrial facilities in the United States continue to rely on energy-draining High Intensity Discharge (HID) sources, specifically metal halide, mercury vapor, and high-pressure sodium lighting. Worse yet, fluorescent and incandescent lighting remains commonplace. LED luminaires create the same or better illumination as conventional lighting sources yet use less than half of the energy, making their higher upfront cost recoupable within months. Industrial facilities that install LED luminaires also realize lower maintenance and repair costs since LED lighting typically operates at full capacity for more than 60,000 hours, or in some cases, up to 100,000 hours. That is two to four times as long as most metal halide, or even sodium vapor lights, and more than 4...

LAMMA Show 2020: Forage, feeding and bedding equipment – NEWS

The NEC halls were awash with the latest models of all things forage harvesting, as well as feeding and bedding distributors. Jane Carley, Geoff Ashcroft and Alex Heath report from under the bright lights of the NEC halls. Pictures by Marcello Garbagnoli and John Eveson.  Among the weapons of grass destruction on the Krone stand was a trio of choppers comprising BigX 770, 480 and 780 models, boasting a collective output in excess of 2,000hp. Krone’s latest X-Collect maize header now features integral guards, which avoids the need to remove – and often lose them – under a hedge. Having guards designed into the header enables automatic repositioning of guards to protect other road users, when the header is folded for transport. McHale has updated its V6 belt baler with the option of a single belt, said to track better and prevent crop losses. Non-chopping, 15 and 25 knife versions are available, now with hydraulic net tensioning and a choice of cam or low maintenance cam-less pick-up. A new model has also been added to the Fusion combi-wrapper range, with the Fusion 3 Plus offering bale density and net adjustment from the cab, along with camera feed from the bale transfer an...

Home » Cars » Toyota GR Supra 2.0L variant launched in Europe – 258 PS/400 Nm, Fuji Speedway edition limited to 200 units The Toyota GR Supra is headed to the European market with a 2.0 litre engined variant, the Japanese automaker has announced, and production of this smaller capacity version is ‘due to commence shortly’ with global sales to begin in March this year. The European market will receive the higher of the two states of tune for the 2.0 litre turbocharged inline-four engine announced at the car’s global debut exactly a year ago. This would be the B48 unit producing 258 hp between 5,000 rpm and 6,500 rpm, and 400 Nm of torque between 1,550 rpm and 4,400 rpm; this output variant is known in the Japan market as the SZ-R. In effect, these output figures are identical to those from the G29 BMW Z4 sDrive30i and the G20 BMW 330i which we get here in Malaysia. Outputs are sent to the rear wheels via a ZF 8HP51 eight-speed automatic transmission, and the 0-100 km/h run is elapsed in 5.2 seconds. Exhaust CO2 emissions are 172 g/km on the WLTP test cycle, with combined fuel consumption rated at 6.3 l/100 km on the NEDC cycle. Weight reduction is the obvious benefit here on the...

Diesel is a fuel that has had a mixed history, with varying levels of take-up by

Diesel is a fuel that has had a mixed history, with varying levels of take-up by consumers around the world. In the world of transport, diesel engines have offered better fuel economy and torque than comparable gasoline engines. Particularly popular in Europe, diesel established a strong consumer base in both small commuter cars as well as heavy vehicles such as trucks and buses. Despite this, the tide is turning, and for the average motorist, diesel’s days may be numbered. Why is this the case, and what are the potential alternatives vying for diesel’s crown? Diesel is a hydrocarbon fuel with several advantages over gasoline. Its lack of volatility makes it workable to use in a compression-ignition mode, and diesel engines can be run with lean fuel-air ratios. It also has a higher volumetric energy density than gasoline, and thanks to low volatility, diesel engines can run at significantly higher compression ratios without risking detonation. These benefits allow diesel engines to produce significantly more torque than similarly sized gasoline engines, and they can offer fuel economy gains in excess of 15%. Unfortunately, diesel also comes with its fair share of drawbacks. Dies...

From cotton balls to computer coding: Dallas marks National STEM Week.

DALLAS TWP. — That not-so-old acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math — STEM — has proven it doesn’t have to mean high-tech work or advanced physics. As students at the Dallas elementary schools proved, it can be anything from a paper airplane to a roundish robot. All four district schools participated in National STEM Week beginning Monday and running through Friday with a broad sample of how STEM seeps into almost anything you want to do. The high school began on Monday with information for students about STEM careers, including a presentation about flying drones or in the world(s) of virtual reality. Dallas Middle School students are getting a chance to use new Industrial Arts equipment, including a laser engraving machine. Both the Intermediate School and Wycallis Elementary — which, combined, house kindergarten through fifth grade — set up activities in their gymnasiums for students to take turns trying. At the new Intermediate School, which welcomed students for the first time this fall, smiles and surprise were abundant as student discovered how to launch cotton balls, fold efficient paper airplanes and use simplified coding to make little robots roll the wa...

In a brief statement from Athletic Director Donnie Brooks released on Tuesday, April 23, Pamela Findlay announced her resignation from her position as Macalester College Women’s Basketball’s head coach. On the Macalester Athletics website, Findlay was quoted as saying: “Macalester is an incredible school with a very close-knit, supportive community. I’m honored to have had the opportunity to be a part of the athletic department. I’m thankful for the student athletes and assistant coaches for working so hard and creating a positive culture. The team is going to build on this past season and do amazing things in the future. I can’t wait to see all they accomplish.” This announcement came as a surprise, as Findlay was only in her first year at Macalester. The Scots finished the season 6-19 overall and 4-14 in the MIAC.
