    HARKERS ISLAND, N.C. (AP) — A newborn wild horse will be raised as a domesticated animal after well-meaning tourists took it with them as they left a North Carolina barrier island, officials at a national park said. The foal followed a group of visitors on Shackleford Banks for two hours on March 26 with no other horses around, according to a Monday news release from the Cape Lookout National Seashore. When the visitors moved their boat to leave the island, the young horse tried to follow them. The park said the group was worried that the newborn would drown, so they lifted it into their boat and left. The tourists were cited for removing the horse, and the park said it’s working with them to assist with future educational opportunities and community service projects that will benefit the banks and its horses. A stallion trying to protect its group of mares might drive them away from where a foal is sleeping, according to the national park. He does that to keep a mare from going back to get her offspring...
    A horse who was known in the Outer Banks region of North Carolina as an 'honorary grandmother' to younger horses has died. Hazel was well into her 20s, and perhaps even 30, according to a Sunday afternoon Facebook post by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund announcing her death.  The average lifespan of a horse is 25 to 30 years, according to WebMD.com.  Hazel is believed to have been close to 30, the upper end of an average horse's lifespan Hazel, second from right, was part of a herd of 100 horses who roam the Outer Banks region of North Carolina 'Hazel lived and died as every wild horse should - free, and on her own terms,' the fund said. Hazel showed no signs of trauma, injury or illness, though the National Weather Service recorded a heat index of as high as 110 degrees in some areas of the Outer Banks on July 30.  'We had noticed that she’d been slowing down some lately. The heat has been really hard on the older horses,' the fund said. The horses are...
    Virgin Galactic jumps 12% after getting the green light from the FAA to fly passengers to space U.S. stock futures point higher ahead of key inflation reading The Marlins are languishing in the bottom of the NL East despite boasting a powerful trio of starters that could soon bring them back to the World Series. View the original article to see embedded media.Welcome to The Opener, where every weekday morning you’ll get a fresh, topical column to start your day from one of SI.com’s MLB writers. A familiar thing happened in Miami on Tuesday: Sandy Alcantara pitched well, and the Marlins lost. That’s a fairly unsurprising outcome for last-place Miami this season. The Marlins are toiling in the cellar of the National League East despite a pitching staff and defense that’s allowed the fourth-fewest runs in the league. That means Alcantara—the staff veteran despite being just 25 years old—has no shortage of unlucky rotation mates. Alcantara, alongside fellow 25-year-old Pablo López and rookie Trevor Rogers, comprise perhaps the best trio of young arms the game has to offer. Their...
    By Ragan Clark | Associated Press Armed with a powder-blue cowboy hat bedazzled by her mother, a homemade vest and a turquoise bolo tie made by her great-grandfather, Brandi Carlile gave her first solo performance at the Northwest Grand Ole Opry Show at 8 or 9. The deal was sealed. “The applause at the end was the nail in the coffin of any other path I might have gone down in life,” writes Carlile. “I never wanted to leave that stage.” Thirty-nine may seem a little young to write a memoir, but in Brandi Carlile’s opinion no one is too young, too old or too uninteresting to write their own story. Crown via AP In Carlile’s memoir “Broken Horses,” she shares the story of how a “shy and quiet but very clever” kid who grew up in a “run-down single-wide mobile home up on top of a mountain” in Washington went on to become close friends with her childhood hero Elton John, win multiple Grammys and produce country icon Tanya Tucker’s last album. Thirty-nine may seem a little young to write...

    Sony Playstation 5 : Kevin Geisler and Seth Parke, programmer and sound designer at Young Horses respectively, has participated in a round of questions with fans on Reddit in which he has discussed various aspects of the development of Bugsnax, the latest game from the studio that is also known for creating Octodad. This new project is already available on PS5, PS4 and PC, but apparently those responsible do not rule out launching it on other platforms. “We hope to bring Bugsnax to other platforms,” ​​Geisler began by saying in his response to the question posed by fans, although he continued to explain that they have not yet publicly moved in this regard: “But we have not yet decided or announced which platforms they will be”. Parke gave a little more information about it: “We do not have specific plans right now, but we would love to take the game to other platforms,” ​​he insisted. Bugsnax, a launch game for PS5 After its release in November coinciding with the launch of PS5, the future of Bugsnax is still up...
    Young Horses pitched Bugsnax to Sony in 2016 or 2017, Tibitisoki recalled, early on in the development process. Octodad had performed well enough to sustain the studio without taking on contract work or rushing out another title, and Tibitoski’s team had spent some time honing their ideas into a semi-coherent prototype.  They began with touchstones like Pokemon Snap, Pikmin, The Muppets, Apocalypse Now, FernGully and The Island of Dr. Moreau, and initially ended up with an on-rails food-truck simulator that wasn’t much fun to play. They brainstormed more and expanded the game to include cooking half-food, half-animal creatures and feeding them to nearby residents in order to influence their communities, complete with town-upgrade trees. “After prototyping each of those things out, we realized this is way too much for a team of our size to actually accomplish, and so we took the things that we liked the most out of those, and eventually pared it down to what Bugsnax is now,” Tibitoski said. Bugsnax’s story evolved over time and numerous table reads, with creative director Kevin Zuhn and story editor...
