Juventus have got the number one player in Ronaldo – Vieri

first_imgFormer Juventus striker Christian Vieri has hailed the club’s capture of Cristiano Ronaldo and insists that age will be no issue for himThe five-time Ballon d’Or winner completed a stunning €112m transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus last month and made his Serie A debut in last Saturday’s opening day 3-2 win at Chievo Verona.Questions have been made in Italy regarding the wisdom of Juventus’ decision to pay such a massive fee for a 33-year-old.But Vieri, who was named the Serie A Player of the Year in 1999 and won the UEFA Super Cup with Juventus in 1996, cannot understand the criticism levelled at Ronaldo because of his age.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“He has arrived in Italy at the age of 33 and they are saying that he’s old and won’t score the same amount of goals as in recent seasons, but Juve have got the number one,” Vieri told DAZN, via Marca.The 45-year-old feels that Cristiano shares many similarities with another great in Brazilian legend Ronaldo Nazario.“‘El Fenomeno’ [Ronaldo Nazario] was lethal in his time at Inter, he scored every single Sunday,” Vieri said.“Cristiano [Ronaldo] is the same, he has scored more than 600 goals, 50 a season… with his left foot, right foot, it doesn’t matter, he is a goal machine.”last_img read more

The official cause of her death was listed as hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, due to resuscitated cardiopulmonary arrest while in custody and acute methamphetamine and fentanyl toxicity.A D.A.’s office statement did not name the transporting officer, but San Diego police previously identified the officers involved in her arrest and transportation as Nicholas Casciola, Jason Taub, and Lawrence Durbin.The District Attorney’s office review included a review of 90 minutes of body-worn camera footage, which can be viewed at https://transfer.sdcda.org/?ShareToken=49F94D06CEDB51F673E74AB48B81F1AC00242E09 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter March 15, 2019last_img read more

Health insurance exchange addresses website problems

first_imgWashington health exchange officials hope fixes made Tuesday evening will correct many of the website’s opening day glitches.Despite the optimism, officials warn that users may still experience brief interruptions or difficulty browsing for plans.Washington Healthplanfinder, the online marketplace where individuals purchase coverage for themselves and their families, launched at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Shortly after its launch, however, officials pulled the site offline to address slow loading times and difficulties people encountered when trying to complete applications.The site, www.wahealthplanfinder.org, was back up and running by 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. Tuesday evening, information technology staff conducted a “thorough end-to-end investigation” of the system to determine the root cause of the intermittent issues, said Richard Onizuka, chief executive officer for the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, in a news release.After conducting the analysis, IT staff made additional system modifications to address the issues, he said.“Our initial findings determined that unexpected user activity and interaction with the marketplace created some of these issues,” Onizuka said. “This activity included sporadic, exploratory navigation through Washington Healthplanfinder on day one that was very hard to replicate even in our extensive testing leading up to launch.”In the first day of operation, the Healthplanfinder website had 170,487 page views, and more than 6,300 people created user accounts.The toll-free customer support center — 855-WAFINDER (855-923-4633) — received twice the projected number of consumer inquiries. The support center fielded nearly 6,200 phone calls and had an average wait time of 1 minute, 13 seconds, according to the Health Benefit Exchange, the public-private partnership tasked with implementing Healthplanfinder.“We understand the frustration of our customers who are experiencing issues with the website and want to assure them that we are committed and actively working to making this better,” Onizuka said. “We have also created a new Washington Healthplanfinder system update page on our organization’s website to allow consumers to get more information about their options if they’re unable to currently complete an application online.”last_img read more

Turbulence hits Air India as staffer accuses senior management of sexual harassment

first_imgAn Air India staffer has accused its senior management of sexual harassmentCreative commonsWhile the government has been trying to privatise national carrier Air India for quite some time now, the sale may just be the last thing on the airline’s mind after a staffer has accused its senior management of sexual harassment.The employee also said that Air India’s internal committee set up to look into such issues is a “farce,” and has, in fact, been taking no steps despite receiving multiple complaints, reported News18.Civil aviation minister Suresh Prabhu has now asked the Air India’s chairman and managing director to immediately address the issue and has also said that a separate committee will be formed to probe the matter if required.The issue came to light after an Air India staffer wrote a detailed letter to Prabhu, in which she states that she has complained of sexual harassment by a senior executive of the airline, but Air India has taken no steps to act on her complaint. In the letter, she also says that the “predator” has abused her and used foul language in front of many women. She adds that he has misbehaved with several other women in the past and has also tried to compel her and several other staffers to drink with him at bars. The letter also states that when she refused and rejected his advances, the senior executives made the victim’s life miserable and denied her the rightful promotions.  Air India hit by sexual harassment scandalTwitterIn the complaint to Prabhu, she also equates the senior executive to Hollywood A-listers Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein and says: “He is equal to if not worse than Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby put together.”  A staffer has accused Air India’s senior management of sexual harassmentTwitterThe victim also lashed out at Air India’s women’s cell, who she says “sadly did nothing to act and dragged their feet on the matter.” She also said that the committee made “a mockery of the enquiry,” and when she narrated her ordeal, the lady chairperson told her: “Oh you know how he talks, he has even flirted with me like this so many times.”In the letter, the victim also alleges that the women’s committee has been trying to cover up complaints made by several women and many senior level officials have been helping the accused. She then adds that her faith in the system is “shaken” and has “lost all hope that the AI bosses club will dispense any woman justice.”last_img read more

Did Booby Traps Really Exist in Ancient Egyptian Tombs

first_imgAs viewers of Hollywood movies know, when an explorer enters an Egyptian tomb they need to keep their head. Quite literally. For it’s only a matter of seconds before a blade swings out to take it off, or worse. Indiana Jones regularly faced his legendary fear of snakes. Lara Croft dodged many a poison dart. This fictionalized version of history has exerted a powerful hold on audiences over the years. As for the truth of the matter, the jury’s still out. While generally acknowledged that ingenious booby traps are a screenwriter’s embellishment of Ancient Egypt, it hasn’t stopped people looking. As recently as 2016, the Great Pyramid of Giza was being examined for evidence of what appeared to be a giant trap, or as the Daily Mail reported a “primitive machine”.The Great Pyramid of GizaBelieved to have been designed in order to protect the tomb of King Khufu (2589–2566 BC), the “builders built grooves into a small room outside the chamber where the King’s body would be placed. Granite slabs would have then been dropped down into these when the work finished to block off access to the chamber. Three other giant granite blocks were slid down a ramp to the passageway below to cut off access to the inner sanctum.”Statue of Khufu in the Cairo MuseumThe mystery behind the Giza Pyramid’s elaborate structure and what secrets it may protect is ongoing. Some theorize Khufu’s final resting place has remained undiscovered inside, and the idea of large stones crushing people brings to mind that famous “giant ball” sequence in Raiders Of The Lost Ark. However, as with any exploration that captures the public imagination, the reality is usually a letdown. Evidence suggests the groove and slab system didn’t work, with thieves appearing to have accessed and raided the tomb area.Great Pyramid of Giza from a 19th century stereopticon card photoWhere did the writers of Dr. Jones’ exploits get their ideas from? There were moveable elements inside the structure that could easily be interpreted as the ultimate deterrent. Architecture has apparently been transformed into something ominous and fatal. There is certainly a compelling narrative behind the plunder of the Pyramids, but it lies more in the class system and how the ancient world operated, rather than fanciful booby traps.Related Video: Archaeologists Unveil 3,000-year-old Tomb In LuxorThe website Today I Found Out remarked in 2018 that “every level of society took part in it, including somewhat hilariously, the very people charged with constructing the tombs, as well as those in charge of burying the dead.”KV62 (Tutankhamun’s tomb), Valley of the Kings, Egypt. Photo by Hajor CC BY-SA 3.0With the all-powerful Pharaohs running the show, getting their hands on valuable assets simply wasn’t a problem. The site says, “the pharaoh’s own subjects and in some cases, their direct successors were the ones stealing their afterlife retirement plan,” with outrageous tales such as “pharaohs unceremoniously having the mummy of their predecessor dumped out of their sarcophagus so that even that container could be reused.”When it came to making off with the Pharaoh’s treasure, it seemed there was one rule for the wealthy and another for everyone else. There were excruciating and example-making ends in store for mere mortals who dared put their eyes on the prize. Being engulfed in flames was seen as particularly brutal. In religious terms it sent the unlucky pilferer to the afterlife without a body.Winged Scarab Pectoral of Tutankhamun. Photo by ean-Pierre Dalbéra/Flickr CC BY 2.0Even the establishment of a citizen police force of sorts failed to keep the amulets and chariots safe. An entire village called the Place of Truth (or Set Ma’at/Deir el-Medina) was set to work constructing tombs for the highest in society.The brainchild of Pharaoh Amenhotep, it operated on the principle that villagers would be beholden to the state and hence loyal. This didn’t work out due to reported shoddy treatment of the workforce. There were no strikes but plenty of tomb raiding to balance injustices.Ruins of Deir el-MedinaIt was a losing battle to keep determined burglars away from the Pharaoh’s precious possessions. Arguably the strongest weapon in their arsenal were those infamous curses, yet the amount of theft appears to suggest people wanted to fill their pockets with cash rather than their souls with fear. Nevertheless, the concepts of ever-weirder booby traps continues to endure in popular culture.Even the ground beneath their feet was a hazard. As a 2013 Buzzfeed article put it, the floors of tombs could be coated in “hematite powder, a sharp metallic dust designed to cause a slow and painful death to those who inhaled enough of it… When Dr. Zahi Hawass… entered the Bahariya Oasis tomb in 2001, his team found the sarcophagus booby-trapped with 8 inches of the stuff, forcing them to abandon their expedition until they could come back with hazmat suits and respirators.”Read another story from us: New Egyptian Tomb Opened that Reveals a Special 4,300-yr-old Green PigmentAcross in China, there are stories of underground mercury lakes, created on the order of Emperor Qin Shi Huang. Could that mean there are long-buried traps of Ancient Egypt waiting to be stumbled upon by unwary archaeologists? Like Indy, they’d better make sure their hats are pulled down tight.last_img read more

It has fewer parts, is easier to assemble, requires less handling, and reduces set-up time for physicians by approximately 50 per cent.The disposable tubing and tubing connections have been re-designed to minimize barriers and optimize the fluid pathway, which is significant for delivery of small particle technology. These improvements optimize dose delivery, providing enhanced safety and ease of use for both medical staff and patients.”Overall, MDS Nordion incorporated smart enhancements to facilitate the safe and effective delivery of TheraSphere including optimizing access to the dose vial and improving the overall internal flow of the therapy to the affected cells,” said David Wood, M.D., chief of Interventional Radiology, Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, Phoenix, AZ. “These upgrades make the administration of TheraSphere to our patients safer and easier.”May Wahab, M.D., associate professor of Radiation Oncology, Department of Radiation Oncology, Sylvester Cancer Center, Miller School of Medicine at University of Miami Hospital said that TheraSphere is the result of advanced technology allowing incorporation of radiation-emitting Yttrium into glass microbeads. “The improvements made to the administration system will make delivering TheraSphere much easier and far more efficient and is an exciting development (for the medical community),” noted Dr. Wahab.For more information: www.mdsnordion.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans.

DenseBreastinfoorg Celebrates Third Anniversary

first_img News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). April 17, 2018 — April 2018 marks the third anniversary of the launch of DenseBreast-info.org, the educational resource for medically sourced information and legislation focusing on fibroglandular breast density. The organization reports it has had 230,000 site visitors to date.Currently 34 states, encompassing over 84 percent of American women, have enacted laws that require some level of density notification following a mammogram. Studies indicate that many medical professionals feel unprepared for patient discussions on the topic. “Both women with dense breasts and healthcare providers have questions on how dense breast tissue affects cancer screening and personal risk for the development of the disease. We saw an informational gap,” said Wendie Berg, M.D., the website’s chief scientific advisor and a radiologist at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. “DenseBreast-info.org was launched to address the question: ‘Have dense breasts? What do I do now?’ when the next steps may be unclear.”DenseBreast-info.org was started as a collaboration between breast imaging experts and medical reviewers. The site offers a wide range of information, from FAQs, screening decision tools and risk tutorials to an interactive map featuring legislative analysis, explanation about common screening modalities, a CME course and more. The goal of the site is to help all women and their doctors “Get Smart About Being Dense.”Launched in April 2015, the website had an average monthly visitor count of 16,000, with projections for 20,000 per month by October 2018. More than 80 percent of users are first -ime visitors and are evenly split between patients and healthcare providers. The website’s information has been viewed by people from more than 175 countries.The CME/CE program launched in 2016 is based entirely on website content and is approved for two American Medical Association category 1 credits. The website’s full-color downloadable patient brochure can be ordered in quantity by imaging centers for patient distributionThis year, the organization announced plans for international expansion in Europe and neighboring countries.  An international coalition of physicians was appointed to develop and curate international material, while a group of DenseBreast-info.org Ambassadors was named to promote site visibility. Berg and the website’s European liaison, Athina Vourtsi, M.D., have prepared a review article on breast density and supplemental screening.In the U.S., outreach efforts include both English and Spanish Facebook pages, with more than 3,500 followers each. The Spanish page offers a trio of educational videos, bringing an important breast care message to this segment of the population. Development of a video series for English-speaking audiences is in progress.“Since its inception, DenseBreast-info.org has reached thousands of women and health providers, delivering important information about the implications of dense breast tissue in masking breast cancer and risk,” said the organization’s executive director JoAnn Pushkin. “With a growing number of visitors, information and resources in place, we have taken major steps forward in accomplishing our mission of making breast density educational tools easily accessible to every woman and healthcare provider seeking them.”For more information: www.densebreast-info.org Technology | Artificial Intelligence | July 18, 2019 Paragon Biosciences Launches Qlarity Imaging to Advance FDA-cleared AI Breast Cancer Diagnosis System Paragon Biosciences LLC announced the launch of its seventh portfolio company, Qlarity Imaging LLC, which was founded… read more Related Content FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more Qlarity Imaging’s software is used to assist radiologists in the assessment and characterization of breast lesions.

Daughter of Cuban president leads gay rights march

first_imgMany gays were fired from government jobs, jailed, sent to work camps or left for exile. Fidel Castro later apologized for the discrimination, saying his past views on homosexuality were wrong, and a product of the times.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Still, she said Obama needed to back his words with action. While the U.S. president voiced support for same sex marriage, there were no plans in the U.S. to get behind federal legislation to mandate states to recognize such unions.Castro’s comments came during a colorful march by 400 advocates through the sweltering streets of the capital. The event is linked to the International Day Against Homophobia on May 17. Participants, including transvestites and transgender people, sang and danced in a conga line.Castro has predicted for years that Cuba’s parliament was on the verge of legalizing gay marriage, but it has yet to happen. She said she hoped legislators would finally follow through when they next meet in July.Castro said her father had voiced support for the measure privately several times, and indicated he was working behind the scenes in support of a reform of the island’s family law.“It is surely part of his tactics and strategy; it is his style,” she said. “I am not going to pressure him to say things publically, because I am more interested in concrete results.”In the early years after Fidel Castro’s 1959 revolution, homosexuality was considered highly suspect, along with other “alternative” forms of expression.

Doctors seeking higher Gesy budget to boost income

first_imgThe Cyprus Medical Association has requested a meeting with President Nicos Anastasiades over disagreements they appear to have with the national health scheme (Gesy) budget, reports suggested on Monday.According to daily Phileleftheros, they want the budget for Gesy set to be rolled out next year, pushed up by another €100m.This is due to an increase in pay they are seeking for their doctors.For instance, in a letter they sent to the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) last week, they outlined that doctors on average should receive €120 per head for child patients, up from the budgeted €80.Where adults are concerned, the medical association wants an increase from €60 per patient to €100.They also recommended that contributions towards Gesy should stay in the doctor’s hands instead of going to the scheme.The HIO had proposed an annual gross income of €110,000 for 1,300 eligible patients whether they visited the doctor or not. There could be up to 2,500 patients on the waiting list which would correspond to an increase in the doctor’s income if they were paid a visit.Paediatricians were down for an annual gross income of €100,000 for 850 children with up to 2,500 minors on the waiting list that would see doctors earn more if they got extra patients.Nonetheless, the medical association said the net income for pediatricians per annum would actually be €24,000, hence the proposed pay rises.The divide between the HIO and the medical association appears to be quite large, according to the report and the latter has requested a meeting with the president to ask for an increase of the NHS budget by €100m.   You May LikeSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoThrone: Free Online GamesIf You’re Over 40 And Own A Computer, This Game Is A Must!Throne: Free Online GamesUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Dovetail Games the Britain-based publisher of the Train Simulator (nee Railworks) series as well as Dovetail Games Fishing just managed to get its mitts on the license for Microsoft’s Flight Simulator franchise The licensing agreement gives Dovetail the right to “develop and publish all-new flight products” derived from Microsoft’s technology and Dovetail says it expects to have something new to market by next year What that initial piece might look like is anyone’s guess be it a standalone product or an expansion to an existing product say a belated appendage to Microsoft Flight Simulator X — the last generally respected simulation-grounded release Microsoft put out before its ill-fated dalliance with free-to-play Speaking of Flight Simulator X Dovetail says it’s also secured the rights to redistribute a version of that eight-year-old game bundled with its 2007 Acceleration expansion by way of Valve’s Steam digital download service The new version will be called simply Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition Look for that to appear later this year says the company It’s not clear how Dovetail plans to adjust development-wise to the challenge of digging deep into the nuances of aeronautics and avionics Trains are hardly planes obviously so I assume there’s going to be some hire-on (perhaps ideally involving former Flight Simulator team members though now I’m speculating wildly) After the Microsoft Flight debacle for me anyway it’s as simple as this: If you’re going to make a simulator then make a simulator not something dumbed down or parceled out to broaden its appeal or sales potential Figure out how to make ends meet by catering to the demographic that your genre by definition appeals to When it comes to flight simulation or really simulators in general that’s going to be a niche and it’ll always be a niche and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that Write to Matt Peckham at mattpeckham@timecomIf Bungie’s Destiny demos and beta are representative of the final game then Halo may have spawned a new sub-genre Call it “Halo-like” And Destiny seems like a card-carrying subscriber A few months ago at E3 when I asked Bungie COO Pete Parsons why Destiny felt so much like playing Halo I expected him to challenge the premise Instead he surprised me by embracing it While Destiny is clearly its own game with divergent gameplay ideas Parsons spoke of a Bungie DNA that flows through all of its games (back to the company’s Mac-exclusive Marathon days in fact) If you played the Destiny beta and you’re familiar with Halo‘s conventions those strands — coiling through the game’s control scheme and user interface — are pretty much unmissable So is the game itself if you’re paying even casual attention to the mega-marketing campaign Over the weekend running FXX’s The Simpsons as background noise in a vacation hotel room the lofty-sounding Destiny trailer seemed to crop up every other commercial break Publisher Activision doubtless hoping Destiny has even longer legs than Halo is clearly sparing the game no expense Here’s a rundown of everything (salient) that we know about the game in the run-up to its worldwide launch next week What is Destiny For the uninitiated: a first-person shooter that’s neither a single-player adventure nor a massively multiplayer online game though it combines elements of both Imagine to use Bungie’s terminology a science fiction universe that’s “alive” and which you can access while playing alone or with drop-in multiplayer companions By “alive” Bungie intends the game to be open-ended enough that unplanned events may occur though whether that means the final version apes Guild Wars 2‘s player-driven events model or something we’ve not yet seen is still unclear Plot-wise the game takes place several hundred years from now in a post-utopian period after an event that leads to the near-extinction of humanity You play as one of an elite group of “Guardians” a band of super-soldier warriors defending humanity from various hostile alien races When will it be available September 9 for PlayStation 3 and 4 as well as the Xbox One and Xbox 360 Is there a launch trailer Of course: There’s also a competitive multiplayer trailer an “E3 Gameplay Experience” trailer and a bunch of locale-specific trailers that highlight the game’s various planetary battlegrounds How many versions are there The standard version is $60 whether you’re grabbing the retail or digital version though GameStop’s offering in-game exclusives like an upgrade for the Sparrow (think Return of the Jedi‘s speeder bikes) if you order through them And if you preorder the standard retail edition (by 2:00 pm PT on September 5) through the Microsoft Store Microsoft will send along a $10 Xbox gift card and ensure your copy arrives by September 9 Let’s step through the special editions from most expensive to least The special editions each include the “Destiny Expansion Pass” which goes for $35 by itself and unlocks “new story missions cooperative and competitive multiplayer arenas and a wealth of all new weapons armor and gear to earn” as well as the game’s first two expansion packs: “Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below” and “Destiny Expansion II: House of Wolves” What’s this I’ve seen about mobile versions Bungie’s released free companion apps for iOS and Android that let you keep tabs on your Guardian analyze your stats compare your scores and access the game’s forums Will the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions both run at 1080p Yes The beta Xbox One version ran at a slightly lower resolution but the ship-time PS4 and Xbox One versions will share the same 1920-by-1080 resolution (If you want to quibble over subtle differences in frame rates or screen tearing or rendering techniques you’ll have to wait for the inexorable Digital Foundry breakdown) Are the PlayStation versions really getting exclusive content Yes: a cooperative mission a multiplayer map class-specific gear two weapons and three ships You’ll find all the details here Can I preload the game If you buy the digital version yes The game is available for preload on PlayStation and Xbox stores now If you preload you’ll be able to play as soon as the servers go live on September 9 When specifically on September 9 do the servers go live This one’s a little confusing Here’s Bungie’s official word on the matter via Twitter: Destiny servers will admit Guardians as soon as it is September 9th somewhere in the world When you play is between you and your retailer Bungie (@Bungie) August 24 2014 Assuming no launch snafus (and to be fair that’s a bold assumption) the game’s servers should be accessible in the United States as early as 8 am ET on September 8 That’s no typo: according to that tweet Destiny according to the temporal logistics of the International Date Line (which passes through the Pacific Ocean) should be playable in the US by early Monday September 8 That’s assuming you have a playable copy of the game of course It sounds like you’ll need a retail copy for the privilege: Both Sony and Microsoft list their respective digital versions of Destiny as being playable “starting midnight PST” or at 3:01 am ET on September 9 How do you secure a retail copy prior to your local retailer’s midnight launch party on September 9 (in whatever time zone you live) You’ll have to make your own inquiries: As Bungie says it’s “between you and your retailer” How much disk space will Destiny take up The digital versions for PS4 and Xbox One list the game’s footprint as 186GB and 18GB respectively but that’s just the preload size After unpacking and the game pulling down any additional launch timeframe data the game’s footprint will be much larger On Sony’s official storefront for the game it writes “40 GB hard drive storage (or its equivalent) is required” That’s apparently the case for the Xbox One version too assuming this photo of the game’s retail packaging is authentic Will the PlayStation and Xbox versions be cross-platform playable Nope nor will PS3 players be able to play with PS4 ones or Xbox One players with Xbox 360 ones Each platform is a universe unto itself Do I have to pay a monthly fee Not to Bungie no but after you’ve purchased the game it requires Xbox Live ($60 a year) to play either of the Xbox versions And while you can play parts of the PlayStation versions without a $50 PlayStation Plus subscription the latter is required for “some activities” (certain game modes though it’s not clear at this point which ones) Can I play it offline No While Destiny includes the option to play solo it requires an Internet connection What about local split-screen I get this question from a surprising number of people about all sorts of online games: but no alas local split-screen isn’t supported Will there be a PC version Bungie co-founder Jason Jones may or may not have said no way back in early 2013 but design lead Lars Bakken told Eurogamer earlier this year that designing a PC version would be “pretty complicated” but that it “doesn’t mean it can’t happen in the future it just means it won’t happen right now” So not yet but maybe Is there anything else I should know Bungie just announced something called “Destiny Planet View” which uses Google technology to let you poke around the game-verse’s versions of Mars Venus and the Moon right now Says Bungie: While the experience only reveals a small slice of Destiny’s massive worlds users will be able to step through each area and discover useful lore gameplay tips and even a few hidden real-world and in-game incentives along the way And here’s the “Destiny Planet View” trailer: Write to Matt Peckham at mattpeckham@timecom while speaking at
