    The first humans to move into the Americas came by sea, rather than over a land bridge, according to a new study, and a giant 3,000ft wall of ice blocked their way. For a long time there have been two main theories into the way people first migrated into North America - over a land mass called Beringia that once connected Asia with North America, or by travelling along the Pacific coast in small watercraft from Asia. Whether they travelled into North America over land depends on whether Beringia was actually had an ice-free corridor, allowing travel down to the Great Plains.  There is footprint, and stone artefacts that suggest the first humans arrived in what is now New Mexico about 23,000 years ago, and central Mexico 26,500 years ago. To find out whether they came by land or sea, the team from Oregon State University and others, set out to determine exactly when the ice-free corridor opened up.  They found that the corridor was not fully open until about 13,800 years ago, with ice sheets up to 3,000ft tall...
    Wordle lovers have slammed the New York Times again over today's answer - with some saying the word 'doesn't exist' and that the it is 'just making up words now'. Recently, fans have been complaining that has become 'too difficult' since the US newspaper took over. Some of the criticisms facing the game this week was that answers like 'caulk' and 'agora' were too niche for most players.  Other players this week found that even when a more common word was used - 'shake' -  they still had problems, finding that even with four correct letters in the right spot there were too many possibilities for the correct answer.  Some found themselves in the frustrating position of missing just one letter to solve the puzzle right the way through, but still failing to complete it in six guesses.  Now today's puzzle has been hit with similar criticisms, with some claiming they've never heard of the word, and others saying once again, there were too many variations for them to be able to guess it.   Wordle, which only offers one puzzle per day to keep...
    A Brooklyn-based British software engineer was celebrating on Monday after a word game he invented only three months ago was bought by The New York Times for over a million dollars. Josh Wardle created the game Wordle - a play on his surname - during the pandemic to amuse his girlfriend, Palak Shah. He began sharing his daily game with friends and family, who loved it: Once a day, players get six chances to guess a five-letter word in a grid. In October he launched the game to the public.  On November 1, Wordle had 90 players. Now The New York Times says aficionados number in the millions.   Wardle, who graduated from university in London in 2006 and moved to the U.S. for a masters in fine arts in 2008, worked as a software engineer at Reddit.  He came up with the idea for the game when he and his partner played a lot of crosswords and spelling bees.  Josh Wardle, a British software engineer, came up with Wordle as a way of entertaining his girlfriend during the pandemic Wardle, who lives...

The move highlights the importance of the company's Games unit, which hosts things like crosswords and Spelling Bee, as a way to attract new subscribers.

    A WORDLE bot using a cheat-code to predict the next day's word is revealing them on Twitter, users warn. A Wordle fan reverse-engineered the game to predict the next word of the day, now a Twitter bot is using the cheat to ruin the game for others. 2A bot on Twitter is ruining the game Wordle for users. Wordle, a free online game that gives users six chances to guess a five-letter word, has quickly become one of the hottest topics online, taking over Twitter feeds. The game was created by Josh Wardle, a programmer, back in October 2021.  In four short months, the browser game has become so popular that it prompted software engineer Robert Reiche to reverse-engineer it to find out the word of the day. Basically, Reichel uncovered that the word of the day is 'embedded client-side,' which means the word of the day can be accessed on the game's website. However, after reworking the cheat code, Reichel was able to figure out what Wordle's next day word was, even before it went live. Now it...
    It was a shrug win if ever there was one. The Chicago Bears’ 29-3 blowout of the New York Giants on Sunday registered as their sixth-largest margin of victory in the last 10 years and the fourth-largest of the Matt Nagy era. But against a Mike Glennon-led offense in total disarray? Another too-little, too-late statement against an obviously inferior opponent? To improve to 6-10 heading into the final week? Ho-hum. Still, as the Bears direct their focus beyond the 2021 season, the on-field product continues to offer glimmers of hope that shouldn’t be ignored, even if the significance to the present is minimal. The Bears proved yet again Sunday that despite their mid-December elimination from playoff contention, they will continue to sprint through the finish line. And the runaway victory over the Giants included more than a few important contributions from players and coaches. Here are four moments from Sunday’s victory, in chronological order, that might mean a little extra beyond this season. 1. Trevis Gipson’s strip-sack To clarify, we’re talking about the first of...

    House Republican Whip Steve Scalise called former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham 'pathetic' after she claimed that Melania Trump refused to visit him at the White House in 2017 after he'd been shot.  Grisham wrote in her salacious new tell-all 'I'll Take Your Questions Now' that Scalise and his family had  taken an impromptu trip to the White House shortly after the Louisiana Republican recovered from being hot at a baseball practice in 2017.   Grisham, who also worked as the first lady's press secretary, wrote that staff asked Mrs. Trump if she wanted to visit the Scalises, gathered in the Blue Room.  'No, I already said hello,' Trump said, apparently referring to when she and the president had visited Scalise in the hospital.   Grisham said that Trump's response had become an inside joke among staff. 'Whenever the first lady said no to something, we would say to each other, 'Well, she already said hello!''   'This is how the fake news media machine against President Trump and @MELANIATRUMP works,' Scalise wrote on Twitter in response. 'This never happened. My family went...

    Getty Fromer Arizona Cardinals center Lamont Gaillard calls an offensive line signal against the Minnesota Vikings in 2019. Gaillard was nearly claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday. The Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday claimed former Arizona Cardinals center Lamont Gaillard off waivers to bolster their offensive line, which pairs Gaillard with former Sean McVay assistant Zac Taylor. But one tweet from Field Yates of ESPN on Friday signifies that Gaillard nearly stayed in the NFC West, as a possible addition to the Los Angeles Rams. Bookkeeping note: new Bengals C Lamont Gaillard was also claimed by both the Giants and Rams on waivers, but Cincy had higher waiver priority. Teams are mining for depth with camps back upon us. — Field Yates (@FieldYates) July 23, 2021 The report is especially eye-grabbing, considering how the Rams chose to not use the NFL Draft or the early free agency period to address the departure of original starter Austin Blythe, now with the Kansas City Chiefs.

    New York Jets: 5 games that could get the national TV treatment Geoff Magliocchetti May 12, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditWhen can New York Jets fans expect to see their team in prime time? ESM investigates with the official schedules on their way out tonight. Nothing showcases the stranglehold that the NFL holds on the American imagination than the release of its annual schedule. The 2021 edition emerges on Wednesday, with early game reveals scheduled for the morning programs of Fox, CBS, and ABC (Fox & Friends, CBS This Morning, and Good Morning America respectively) before the full schedule is posted in prime time. Contrary to the popular belief that performance dictates how “easy” or “hard” a team’s schedule is, there’s hardly any surprise involved when it comes to an individual team’s opponents. By the time we get to Wednesday’s reveals, everyone knows who their team is going to play in 2021. Heck, the NFL’s scheduling formula allows us to look to, say, 2049, and figure out all but three opponents for the year ahead. But the...

This article will cause me to get many emails as it will irritate many Yankee fans, but at the same time, it highlights a problem that the Yankees are experiencing, they can’ hit the ball. You may say it’s only three games, but how will you feel at the end of the season and the Yankees lose the division by only three games?

    New York : The Dodgers are the baseball team that sells the most hot dogs during a game. Photo: Jonathan Ferrey / . Now that the Major League Baseball (MLB) season is beginning there will be thousands of fans at each game waiting for the capacity of the parks to increase as more people get vaccinated and COVID-19 rates continue to decline. This slow return to sporting normality will also mean an increase in meat consumption. In a middle season fans eat approximately 20 million hot dogs and 4.5 million sausages, according to a report from the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC).

    The legal battle started four-and-a-half years ago and has lasted more than twice as long as their marriage. Now it seems the split between Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has entered a bitter ‘endgame’ phase. Documents filed this week by Miss Jolie, 45, indicate that not only will she again accuse Pitt, 57, of domestic violence when their custody case comes to court this year, but that she intends to prove this with video recordings and testimony from their six children. What’s not in dispute is that the fallout has strained Pitt’s relationship with his children. Tellingly, his eldest adopted son, Maddox, 19, is said to no longer use Pitt as his last name, and wants to legally change it. It is far from the only legal bombshell for Pitt to contend with. Miss Jolie’s latest memorandum was filed to court ‘under seal’, meaning it is private and cannot be viewed by the public. However, its title gives a lot away: ‘Offer of Proof and authority in support thereof re: Testimony regarding domestic violence.’ The alleged violence is...
    MESA, Ariz. — The Oakland A’s stuck it to the Milwaukee Brewers, sticking a 9-1 win to their Cactus League record. Now 10 games into spring, Wednesday saw the A’s first starter take the mound. Chris Bassitt tossed three innings, gave up one run — a Travis Shaw home run — and struck out two with no walks. But there was more to glean from Bassitt’s outing. Here are the takeaways. Bassitt’s new slider New A’s reliever Sergio Romo saw a frustrated Bassitt in the backfields and headed over to his new teammate. Bassitt has only recently been incorporating a slider into his mix — he threw it just 2.5% of pitches in 202 after not throwing it at all in his career before that — and couldn’t quite find a good grip. Romo’s been in the league for 13 years. He knows a thing or two about being a teammate — so he offered Bassitt his slider grip, the one of a variation he’s established his career on. “I said, ‘Dang this is pretty funky...

    UK scientists say a new screening technique called 'Prostagram' could catch an extra 40,000 prostate cancer cases a year.  The non-invasive, 15-minute scan is based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body.    Prostagram is modelled on breast cancer screening, where women are routinely offered a mammogram scan every three years as part of a national programme. This breast cancer screening is credited with saving some 1,300 lives a year, reducing the death toll by more than 10 per cent, and it's hoped similar results will be seen with Prostagram.  The new scan would suit men who are reluctant to be tested for prostate cancer due to the intrusive nature of the current examination technique – a rectal examination. There are more than 49,000 prostate cancer cases per year and it is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK.  Following a successful trial in hundreds of men, experts have called Prostagram 'a game-changer' that will bring 'vital' mass screening for men 'a...

Lual Mayen wasn’t old enough to walk when he fled South Sudan with his family to a refugee camp in northern Uganda, where he lived for 22 years. Food was scarce. School didn’t exist. “It was not an easy journey…I lost two of my sisters,” he said.

    In some ways, yesterday’s announcement of Pokémon Unite felt a few years too late. There was once a period of time when it seemed every major publisher was experimenting with the then-burgeoning MOBA trend, trying to emulate the newfound success of League of Legends and Dota 2. That was years ago. Yet, here was The Pokémon Company teaming up with Tencent, announcing its own competitive 5 vs. 5 strategy game in the year 2020. It was a blast from the past. But while it’s easy to be cynical about the announcement, there’s no denying a simple fact: Pokémon Unite has the potential to be absolutely massive when it finally launches and open up the world of competitive gaming to a whole new audience. For one thing, while the flood of new MOBA games has slowed significantly, the genre is still incredibly popular. Dota 2’s annual tournament, The International, remains the most lucrative esports event in the world, while League of Legends, despite being a decade old, still has millions of players and regularly tops the viewership charts on Twitch. Elsewhere,...

    Fortnite, the incredibly popular battle royale video game, debuted Chapter 2, Season 3 earlier this week with a brand new, “Waterworld” style map, leaving players forced to battle each other among familiar landmarks that are now islands, stranded in huge bodies of water. But there are other changes, too. When the game re-opened for battle this week, it re-opened without its famous cop cars, leaving some players concerned that Fortnite creators have given in to growing national anti-police sentiment after the death of George Floyd, a black man who perished while in the custody of Minneapolis police. “Fortnite’s map used to be littered with police cars, along with other vehicles like trucks, passenger cars, and ice cream trucks. Creative mode featured these vehicles as well, as part of sets of vehicle pre-fabs,” gaming review site Kotaku reported Friday. “While there are still some vehicles on the map after this week’s update, players—the staff of Kotaku included—haven’t been able to find any police cars on the battle royale island.” Users on the Fortnite Reddit report that the cars occasionally appear in the...
    No attorney general since John Mitchell has gotten away with assaulting the rule of law more than Bill Barr. But unlike Mitchell, who served 19 months in prison for his role in the Watergate scandal, Barr has yet to be held accountable for his ever-expanding laundry list of outrageous misdeeds and derelictions. To be sure, there have been several efforts to bring Barr to heel. Last July, for example, the House voted to hold both Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt for refusing to turn over documents related to the Trump administration’s attempt to include a citizenship question in the 2020 census. But in an act of defiance that surprised absolutely no one, the DOJ, which Barr heads, refused to pursue charges against either cabinet member, leaving the House with no means of enforcement. More recently, more than 2,000 former Justice Department lawyers signed open letters demanding Barr’s resignation after he intervened in the cases of Roger Stone and Michael Flynn to overturn the sentencing recommendations of career prosecutors. And in a scathing rebuke published May 9, the editorial board of the New York Times accused...
    Dark Alliance, a reboot of the cult classic Dungeons & Dragons action role-playing game from 2001, is on the way later this year from Wizards of the Coast. On Thursday, during the annual D&D Live streaming event, the company revealed how its storyline dovetails into the franchise’s newest tabletop setting — Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden. On Monday, Dark Alliance’s developers gave a private presentation to members of the press. No new gameplay was shown, but we now know a little bit more about what fans should expect from the hack-and-slash game.

Salvatore’s Icewind Dale trilogy. The party will be led by Drow elf Drizzt Do’Urden, who featured prominently in the teaser trailer released in December. Players can also choose to play as Catti-brie if they prefer ranged combat, tank up with the massive barbarian known as Wulfgar, or work the room as the feisty dwarf Bruenor Battlehammer....

    This week The Post takes a fresh look at the “best of” New York sports history — areas that are just as worthy of debate, but that haven’t been argued incessantly. The Yankees’ 1978 comeback over the Red Sox was the best comeback in New York sports history. Here are six other major comebacks that just missed the cut: 1951 Giants Trailing first-place Brooklyn by 13 games on Aug. 11, the Giants closed out the regular season on a 39-8 run to tie the Dodgers and force a three-game playoff. After the two teams split the first two games, the Giants hosted Brooklyn at the Polo Grounds for the final game, which the Giants won on Bobby Thomson’s walk-off homer off Ralph Branca in the bottom of the ninth to advance to the World Series. Mets’ 10-run inning to beat the Braves in 2000 The Mets were down 8-1 heading into the bottom of the eighth inning on June 30, which was also Fireworks Night at Shea Stadium. Then the Mets scored 10 runs — nine of them with two...
    This week The Post takes a fresh look at the “best of” New York sports history — areas that are just as worthy of debate, but that haven’t been argued incessantly. Today’s edition: the best comeback in New York sports history. The summer of 1978 hardly seemed like it was setting up for the Yankees to pull off one of the most dramatic comebacks in baseball history. Coming off a World Series victory the year before, they found themselves in fourth place and 14 games behind the first-place Red Sox in the AL East on July 19. They were still 8½ out on Aug. 20, but managed to trim that deficit to just four games by the time the Yankees visited Fenway Park for a four-game series that began on Sept. 7. What happened then became known as the Boston Massacre, four straight wins by the Yankees by a combined score of 42-9 that moved them into a tie with the Red Sox atop the division. The Yankees eventually went up by as many as 3½ games, but gave away...
    This time last year, E3 was in full-swing, for better or worse. While it's unclear if we'll see another E3 in the future, publishers are taking their big summer showcases to the web. Sony's livestreamed event just wrapped, and while it wasn't as big or splashy as an E3 press conference (the annual gaming trade show was canceled this year due to Covid-19), Sony rolled out some big announcements, chief among them: What the PlayStation 5 actually looks like. We caught a glimpse of the design for the first time today. It's sleek, modern, and looks like it would be at home as set dressing in a cyberpunk movie. I mean that in a good way. For more about the console itself, check out our PS5 hardware rundown.Kena: Bridge of SpiritsKena: Bridge of Spirits sees players in the shoes of a young enchantress as she takes on the evils plaguing a charming and lovely forest.

    The next Xbox is still slated to hit store shelves this holiday season — coronavirus be damned. In an interview with Time, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that despite the pandemic forcing employees to work from home, the next-generation gaming system will keep its original launch window. “Yes, we are on track,” Nadella said. “The head of our Xbox did say that one of the challenges in remote work is some of the content creation: there are certain things that do need people to come into studios that might have an impact in our first-party and third-party games.” The comments come as video game industry saw its best March sales in more than a decade thanks to millions of gamers being locked indoors due to the pandemic. The holiday window is traditionally one of the most lucrative quarters of the year for video game makers. Sony’s PlayStation 5 is also set to come out in December. Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan last week told gamesindustry.biz that his team, as well as its game developer partners, are well positioned to...
