Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War — How It’s Changing For The Cross-Play Beta Weekend

The first public beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War ran this past weekend on PS4, and now developer Treyarch has outlined some of the changes in the pipeline for the next beta. The second beta is a much bigger one, as it’s coming to Xbox One and PC as well, and there will be cross-platform multiplayer support.

Weekend 2 players can expect a series of changes, including the team deathmatch score limit rising from 75 to 100 “for better match pacing,” as well as a change to the Duster Stock attachment that will slow down sliding speed.

The cooldown on the Spy Plane scorestreak has been increased to lessen the experience of having too many of them in the sky at the same time from different players.

There have also been some general changes to improve the experience, such as join-in-progress now preventing players from joining a

Times, they are a-changin’—particularly in the casting world. 

COVID-19 has catalyzed a massive shift in the way brands, content creators, and casting directors find talent, and in a socially distanced world, as well as a generally globally connected one, utilizing technology is the only way to keep the cameras rolling.

“As a casting and production professional, what are some interesting ways you can take your current productions and alter them to fit a remote format? How can you continue to develop fresh content that’s impactful during such an unpredictable time?” Sabrina Safran, director of casting and talent development at Hearst, told Backstage. “It’s up to all of us to collaborate in a way that makes sense and keep creating content that matters. And one thing to remember that’s most important is that we’re all in this together.”

Here’s how new technology is changing

CANOGA PARK, Calif., October 8, 2020 – California LightWorks, a leading U.S. manufacturer of LED horticultural lighting, today announced the introduction of MegaDrive™, a game-changing new professional grow light system that delivers unparalleled results while significantly reducing both up-front and long term operating costs. By removing LED drivers from individual light fixtures, the new MegaDrive™ eliminates the need for electrical power connections throughout the greenhouse or grow room while significantly reducing up-front costs.

As the indoor and greenhouse horticulture industries mature, lowering operating costs is becoming essential to ensuring profitability. LED technology can significantly reduce operating costs through high efficiency, long fixture life and sunlight balancing.  However, LED technology adoption in the horticulture industry has been slow due to high up-front and installation costs.

The new MegaDrive™ system consists of a large central power unit connected to a series of up to 30

Tech, intuitive design are changing physically-demanding workplaces

The Cat 950M Wheel Loaders have been fitted with joysticks instead of steering wheels.

Finning UK and Ireland

From voice-activated televisions to monitoring devices that automate lighting in offices, the technology that underpins the buildings we live and work in is changing.

This shift is also apparent in the way buildings are constructed and how industrial sites are run, with tweaks in design and new pieces of technology having a significant effect on day-to-day activities.

Ergonomics — also known as “human factors” — refers to how people interact with the systems around them, and is of increasing importance in all workplaces, including physically-demanding industries.

One example of a seemingly small change which has had a big impact can be found at a recycling depot in Nottinghamshire, England. Here, Veolia and Finning UK & Ireland have been trialing vehicles that use joysticks, instead of steering wheels.

Staying Flexible In A Changing Business World

Warren Jolly is the CEO of adQuadrant, a leading omnichannel digital marketing agency in Orange County, CA.

No matter how big or successful your business is, new developments can still affect it. I know from personal experience that no matter how prepared you are, there are still some changes that can pull the rug out from under you. Of course, there’s no way to know for certain what the future will bring, but there are certainly ways to mitigate any potential negative consequences. I’ve found that the key tactic is to evolve along with the changes you’re facing.

Take as an example changes made by third-party platforms that your business relies on. This is something you can’t completely prepare for because it’s outside of your control. My company relies heavily on third-party platforms and companies like Facebook. This means that when these platforms make changes, it can dramatically

The Technical Picture Is Changing for Zoom

Zoom (ZM)  has quickly become a new noun and verb in American conversation. Our stay-at-home economy and education system could not operate without it.

We reviewed the charts on Sept. 9 of Zoom Communications Inc. and wrote that “ZM looks like it will resume its impressive rally. Aggressive traders could buy available weakness risking a close below $300.” Prices rallied to new highs after our review but a fresh look at the charts is a good idea at this juncture.

In this updated daily Japanese candlestick chart of ZM, below, we can see some new clues. Upper shadows above $510 tell us that traders are rejecting those highs. In recent days the candle patterns are small spinning tops, which suggests a balance between bulls and bears.

A close below $460 could tip the scales to the bear side. The On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line shows a peak in late September and a

Twitter Considers Changing Misinformation Labels

Twitter  (TWTR) – Get Report is reassessing how its misinformation labels appear and reach users, the microblogging site’s head of site integrity told a news service.

The San Francisco social-media company currently attaches small blue notices to false tweets.

It is assessing how to make these signals more “overt” and “direct,” Twitter’s Yoel Roth told Reuters.

Roth made no mention of whether the changes would be implemented before the Nov. 3 U.S. election.

The changes will include testing a reddish-magenta color that is more visible, Roth told the news service.

Twitter reduces the reach of tweets that it labels for false content by limiting their visibility and not recommending them in search results, Reuters reported.

Feedback from users tells the company that they want to know whether an account has been repeatedly labeled, Roth said. Twitter will consider whether to flag users who constantly post false information, he
