The Federal Communication Commission's vote to repeal net neutrality laws could have a serious impact on esports in the future. And Counter Logic Gaming COO and former Twitch head of esports Nick Allen told theScore esports it could have been a huge blow to esports if the laws were repealed years ago. "What happens if [there was no] net neutrality, or there was much more exploitation of the lack of net neutrality years ago, when Twitch and Justin.tv were just getting started?" Allen said.
Fnatic have signed support player Zdravets “Hylissang” Galabov to their 2018 roster, which will otherwise feature four returning players from 2017. Hyllisang will join Martin "Rekkles" Larsson, Paul "sOAZ" Boyer, Mads "Broxah" Brock-Pedersen and Rasmus "Caps" Winther on Fnatic's roster. Hylissang is replacing Jesse "Jesiz" Le as Fnatic's support. "I’ve always been fan of Fnatic and of course Rekkles and this year I got the opportunity to play with both!
Aging LawyersThe legal profession is getting older. An estimated 16 percent of partners will retire in the next five years, with an additional 38 percent expected to retire in the next decade, according to The American Lawyer. Jobs for recent law school graduates, meanwhile, have slowly gone up. The overall employment rate for law grads from the Class of 2016 reached 87.5 percent, a 0.8 percent uptick from the year before, according to the National Association for Law Placement (NALP).
I'd be less grumpy if Capcom didn't do everything right last weekend. It's one-step forward, two steps back, and it's driving me crazy. Microtransactions suck, but walking back a good consumer-friendly decision this far along really leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I hope other people feel this way, because it's a very newcomer-unfriendly move coming at a time where new people SHOULD be coming into the game. Capcom WANTS people to come into the game. Letting folks earn some costumes are least gets them to stick around.
Now, you have to grind a character for a lot longer to earn anything. I'm someone who does buy passes, because I enjoy SFV (I know, it's heresy), but a lot of people aren't, and the one-time rewards weren't even worth that much, they just felt good to get.
I don't mind Capcom charging money for shots at fancy, limited costumes, but removing the easiest way to earn fight money for newcomers sucks.
It was super easy to tell someone to do story mode and trials, which would teach some basics and net them a character for the trouble.
The Disney Fox acquisition fills me less with hope about the X-men and more with dread about how all future media will be part of one massive conglomerate that controls all IP.
I would like to see Magneto in MvCI though, I guess.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
