      Exclusive in-depth look at three multiplayer maps.

      SNOWBOUND: The first is a small outdoor map blanketed in snow. The map's outer edges are guarded sentry-style by large guns, and while they weren't active in the pre-Alpha build we played, the plan is to have them kill players who try to venture outside of Snowbound's borders. Plus, several rock outcroppings cover one half of the perimeter with weapons strategically placed along the edge among the cover.
      Two forerunner structures act as bases on either side of the map, with a series of intertwining tunnels beneath connecting them. You'll also find two other entrance points into the underground tunnel system. A shotgun is in the underground tunnel network, placed in the middle of explosive fusion coils. Up on the surface, a Sniper Rifle sits in a similar room just underneath a snow drift -- and it, too, is guarded by explosive fusion coils.

      HIGH GROUND: High Ground is a medium-sized map that revisits some familiar ground tread in Halo 2's Zanzibar. There's a beach and a compound, and the map is built with objective gametypes (One Flag CTF, Assault) in mind. Instead having of a giant spinning wheel and a huge distance to cover from beach to base, High Ground is a much more compact assault map.
      Like Zanzibar, there are several entrance points to the compound and both teams have a vehicle and weapons of their own. Both teams have access to shotguns and the squad coming from the beach gets a Warthog and a Sniper Rifle. The base's garage houses a Ghost and a turret sits atop the gate, acting as the anti-vehicle weapon.
      Also like Zanzibar, there are multiple ways to infiltrate High Ground's base. Along the left side of the map (approaching from the beach) is a small half-blown-apart bunker. Players can enter the bunker through the side and into a small tunnel system leading into the base, or they can use a Spike Grenade or a Plasma Grenade to blow apart the hatch on top of the bunker and drop into the tunnel system that way.
      Along the right side of the base, players can jump up a group of rocks and onto the walkway where the turret sits. Also on the right side players can access a small pipe system that requires them to crouch and infiltrate the base that way.
      The beach team's Sniper Rifle is supposed to keep the turret in check -- it's no shield door, but it definitely provides another game of cat and mouse.

      VALHALLA: In Norse mythology, Valhalla is Odin's Hall. In Halo 3, Valhalla is sacred in its own way. As the spiritual successor to Blood Gulch, Valhalla shares several similarities (and even more differences) with its symmetry-filled cousin. Bases are tucked on both sides of the map, and a river runs angularly through the terrain. Two elevated plateaus in the map's center hold weapons of their own -- on one sits a new shoulder mounted weapon, the Spartan laser, and on the other, a turret.

      Scientists boldly go where only
      science fiction has been before

      88888888888888888060524_invisible_hmed8p.widec.jpg

      WASHINGTON - Harry Potter and Captain Kirk would be proud. A team of American and British researchers has made a Cloak of Invisibility.
      Well, OK, it’s not perfect. Yet.
      But it’s a start, and it did a pretty good job of hiding a copper cylinder.
      In this experiment the scientists used microwaves to try and detect the cylinder. Like light and radar waves, microwaves bounce off objects making them visible and creating a shadow, though it has to be detected with instruments.
      If you can hide something from microwaves, you can hide it from radar  a possibility that will fascinate the military.
      Cloaking differs from stealth technology, which doesn’t make an aircraft invisible but reduces the cross-section available to radar, making it hard to track. Cloaking simply passes the radar or other waves around the object as if it weren’t there, like water flowing around a smooth rock in a stream.
      The new work points the way for an improved version that could hide people and objects from visible light.
      Conceptually, the chance of adapting the concept to visible light is good, cloak designer David Schurig said in a telephone interview. But Schurig, a research associate in Duke University’s electrical and computer engineering department, added, “From an engineering point of view it is very challenging.â€Â
      Nonetheless, the cloaking of a cylinder from microwaves comes just five months after Schurig and colleagues published their theory that it should be possible.



      well this has all kinds of implications, it's good for us if we have it, bad if it gets into the hands of our enemies. it's nice to see that we are cathing up to our sicence fiction and maybe our kids will get all the cool things we've always dreamed about.

    • HELL EXPLAINED BY CHEMISTRY STUDENT

      12 years ago

      jedipoet

      The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington
      chemistry mid-term.

      The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it
      with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have
      the pleasure of enjoying it as well :

      Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic
      (absorbs heat)?

      Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law
      (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some
      variant.


      One student, however, wrote the following:

      First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we
      need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at
      which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets
      to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many
      souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist
      in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a
      member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of
      these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion,
      we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they
      are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
      Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's
      Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the
      same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are
      added.

      This gives two possibilities:

      1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls
      enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all
      Hell breaks loose.

      2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in
      Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

      So which is it?

      If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year
      that, "It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take
      into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must
      be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen
      over . The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it
      follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct....
      leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being
      which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God."

      THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A"

      Thats the thing, Q is omnipotent and all knowing, he would have known who Peter was the moment he even sensed him, and would have stripped him of his powers/prevented him from being able to steal his.

      Peter isn't the brightest of the bunch, and would be scooled pretty quickly by Q.
