League Of Legends: Wild Rift Releases For iOS This Year, Uses iPhone 12 A14 Chip And 5G

Riot Games appeared on stage during Apple’s iPhone 12 event to announce that League of Legends: Wild Rift will arrive on iPhone devices later this year. The mobile adaptation of the wildly popular MOBA League of Legends comes at a time when another hit multiplayer game–Fortnite–remains unavailable on iOS devices.

An official release date for League of Legends: Wild Rift was not confirmed; we just know it will release sometime in 2020. The announcement was made while Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 12, the company’s latest flagship phone. The exact phones that support Wild Rift were not shared, but we do know it’ll take advantage of the iPhone 12’s new A14 Bionic chip and 5G functionality. How exactly it will utilize the new chip was not shared in great detail, but Riot touted the “fast speeds” that the new line of iPhones will allow for when playing Wild Rift.

North Carolina runs wild over Virginia Tech

Sam Howell threw three touchdown passes for the Tar Heels (3-0), who got some breathing room on Carter’s 62-yard touchdown run around the right side midway through the fourth quarter.

Next up for the Hokies is a visit from Boston College next Saturday night.

The Hokies (2-1) closed to 42-37 with 15 seconds left in the third quarter on Hendon Hooker’s 33-yard pass to wide receiver Tayvion Robinson. Hooker, making his season debut, came off the bench to play the entire second half in relief of Braxton Burmeister.

The defensive meltdown spoiled the debut of Justin Hamilton, who coached his first game since being elevated to defensive coordinator in place of retired Bud Foster. Hamilton had spent the first two games offering instruction virtually while quarantining at his home with his family.

The secondary, meantime, continued to operate at a considerably diminished capacity, even with the

The mission of Wildlife Services, an office in the Department of Agriculture (USDA), is “to provide federal leadership and expertise to resolve wildlife conflicts to allow people and wildlife to coexist.” In practice, that means slaughtering animals in droves.

New data the USDA released this week shows that in 2019, the program killed approximately 1.2 million animals native to North America. That includes hundreds of gray wolves, black bears, and bobcats, thousands of red foxes, tens of thousands of beavers, and hundreds of thousands of birds. Fewer than 3,000 of those animals were killed unintentionally.

Program employees are deployed to deal with dangerous feral hog populations and keep bird populations at airports under control so planes

The Xbox Series X And PlayStation 5 Have No Wild Ideas, And It’s A Bummer

If there’s a piece of video game hardware that ever really impressed me, outside of the return and rapid advancement of virtual reality, it has to be Kinect. Microsoft’s natural movement input camera turned your body into a controller for the Xbox 360, and it worked surprisingly well in translating a person’s movements to a character on a TV screen. Playing games like bowling with Kinect, picking up an imaginary ball and flinging it down an imaginary lane only to see all that kinetic energy made “real” in a video game, felt like a form of magic.

As Kinect started to get hacked to serve as the eyes for robots or to help improve the accuracy of surgeons, I thought for sure we’d see the device become an important part of not just the gaming landscape but of innovations in technology in general. When Microsoft announced the Xbox One in

Germany confirms two more swine fever cases in wild boar

HAMBURG (Reuters) – Another two cases of African swine fever (ASF) have been confirmed in wild boars in the eastern German state of Brandenburg, the state government said on Friday.

The new discoveries bring total confirmed cases to 34 since the first one on Sept. 10, all in wild animals, with no farm pigs affected.

All have been found in the region of the first discovery in the Brandenburg area.

Germany’s Friedrich-Loeffler scientific institute had confirmed the latest animals had ASF, the Brandenburg state government said.

China and a series of other pork buyers banned imports of German pork this month after the first case was confirmed, causing Chinese pork prices to surge.

The disease is not dangerous to humans but it is fatal to pigs and a massive outbreak in China, the world’s biggest pork producer, has led to hundreds of millions of pigs being culled.

Wild Friday Features More Woes for Tech

Friday was expected to be an active day for stocks, and, on that front, it didn’t disappoint.

Dow Jones Industrial Average finished 0.9% lower to 27,657.” data-reactid=”20″Today was a “quadruple witching” day, in which index futures, index options, stock options and individual-stock futures all expire at once, which sometimes leads to heavy volume and erratic moves in parts or all of the market. In this case, the major indices flipped from early gains to deep losses, then recovered somewhat before closing in the red. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished 0.9% lower to 27,657.

Andy Murray recibe wild card para Roland Garros


PARÍS (AP) — Andy Murray recibió el lunes un wild card para el Abierto de Francia.

El exnúmero uno del mundo fue el único de los ocho tenistas que no es originario de Francia en recibir una invitación al cuadro principal del Grand Slam que inicia en 13 días.

Murray también recibió una invitación para el U.S. Open, luego de sufrir lesiones en la cadera y la pierna, que lo desplomaron hasta el sitio 129 del escalafón mundial. En Nueva York avanzó dos rondas y ascendió al puesto 110, pero aún por debajo de los estándares del Abierto de Francia al momento de publicar su lista de participantes en el cuadro principal.

El mejor resultado de Murray en Roland Garros fue en 2016, cuando llegó a la final.

Entre las mujeres, la búlgara Tsvetana Pironkova y la canadiense Eugenie Bouchard fueron las

US stocks turn lower again as a wild trading week continues

Technology stocks accounted for a big share of the broad decline. Tech stocks have been at the center of the market’s swings, hurt by criticism that their recession-defying surge in recent months was overdone. Apple, Microsoft and chipmaker Nvidia all fell.

The market will likely lack any solid direction for the next few months as investors weigh several key issues, said Rod von Lipsey, managing director at UBS Private Wealth Management.

“Two things everybody is waiting for: Who is going to win the election, and are we going to find a vaccine for the virus?” he said. “Those two questions are impossible for us to answer in this particular quarter.”

He said big investors are either waiting on the sidelines or in a neutral position on expectations that markets will stay volatile through the uncertainty.

“We’re not all sure where the economy is going to head from here,” he said.

Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 Updates Will Have To “Wait A Bit Longer”

Back at E3 2019, Nintendo ended its Direct live stream with the surprise announcement that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would receive a sequel. Since then, any information on the sequel has been kept tightly under wraps, as Nintendo isn’t ready yet to divulge any new details on the game. In a brief update regarding progress on Breath of the Wild 2, Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma asked fans to wait “a bit longer.”

“Regarding the sequel, in order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development so you’ll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates,” Aonuma said at the beginning of the Hyrule Warriors reveal video.

Breath of the Wild had received downloadable content after it launched, and shortly after the reveal of the

The Wild West Is Starting To Settle Down And Get The Job Done: 2020 Automated Vehicles Symposium

The recent Automated Vehicles Symposium provided a superb update on all things automated driving. Established in 2014, this non-profit conference is co-sponsored by the Association for Unmanned Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI) and the National Academy of Sciences Transportation Research Board (TRB). Originally scheduled for San Diego during the last week of July, the event transitioned to a high-end virtual conference platform that worked quite well for the complex session formats. In addition to plenary sessions across the four-day event, over 40 breakout sessions dug into a mind-bending array of topics. A feature unique to AVS, the breakouts are organized by a small army of volunteers from academia, government, and industry. Members of the AVS Executive Committee (of which I am a part) are volunteers as well. Because this is a non-profit volunteer-led conference, I feel
