      I asked myself this question and it's really hard to answer.
      Trevor (used to be Caleb) is in charge of the community hunter channel
      Gavin is always talking to fans on twitter
      Burnie, because he created RT in the first place and he's very against turning off youtube comments
      Ray is a fan turned AH (so is Trevor, Matt, and Jeremy) and he's always doing live streams for us
      Matt made some of the best minecraft maps for AH before they stopped accepting user created levels
      Michael and Rage Quit, because if i remember correctly it exhausts him to hell yet he still did it before Lazer Team
      Jack because of his role in Extra Life and now Let's Play live
      Ryan does The Patch which is always good to catch up on news
      Geoff for creating AH

      am i forgetting anyone?

    • Destiny Patch Notes: Changes to exotics

      in Forums > Destiny Patch Notes: Changes to exotics | Follow this topic

      Exotic Weapons are designed to look, feel, and sound overpowered. At the same time, they are not supposed to break the balance of the game. We hope these weapons challenge the way players think about their loadouts. Exotics will be a constant work in-progress!
      In preparation for the Dark Below, Exotic Armor and Weapons no longer require Ascendant Materials to upgrade
      The final upgrade node of all Exotic Gear will require an Exotic Shard
      Exotic Shards can be obtained by one of the following means:
      Dismantling unwanted Exotics
      Purchased from Xur for 7 Strange Coins
      Exotics now start at a higher base Attack value and have a narrowed upgrade range to compensate
      Projectiles now briefly highlight targets on impact
      Mark of the Devourer DoT (damage-over-time) upgrade increased against PvE enemy targets
      Reload Speed increased
      Magazine Size increased
      Ammo inventory size increased
      Stability and Weapon Handling increased
      Bad Juju
      Magazine Size increased to 8 bursts (was 5)
      Ammo inventory size increased
      String of Curses now also decreases the cooldown of your Super on kill
      Adjusted effects to not block first person reticle
      Hard Light
      Stability increased
      Perfect Balance upgrade replaced by Fitted Stock (increases maximum possible weapon Stability)
      Suros Regime
      Lowered total damage at the end of the mag on SUROS Regime upgrade to be more in line with the Glass Half Full perk on Legendary Auto Rifles
      Monte Carlo
      Stability increased
      Range slightly decreased
      Monte Carlo Method upgrade now also has a chance to fully charge melee ability on kill
      MIDA Multi-Tool
      MIDA rounds now have increased knockback against targets in both PvE and PvP
      Send It upgrade (which was redundant) replaced by Speed Reload
      Red Death
      Rate of Fire increased slightly, but Burst Damage reduced to compensate
      Plan C
      Weapon Handling speed increased
      Player Speed increased while Plan C is in hand
      Pocket Infinity
      Speed Reload upgrade replaced by Extended Clip which allows the option to increase magazine size (5 bursts)
      Vex Mythoclast
      Attack Power increased to 323 (from 300)
      Base Damage increased, fixing bug we introduced in previous patch
      Enhanced Battery upgrade by Extended Mag (this change still allows for a significant upgrade to Magazine Size, but less than before)
      Reload Speed increased significantly, auto fires slightly slower
      Ice Breaker
      Send It upgrade replaced by Lightweight (which was redundant as Icebreaker already had maximum range)
      New effects for enemies killed by Ice Breaker upgrade
      Patience and Time
      Snapshot upgrade replaced by Custom Optics (provides a lower zoom option)
      Super Good Advice
      Stability increased
      Magazine Size increased to 3 (was 1)

      Fixed an issue we introduced in a previous patch, in which Atheon did not correctly send 3 players through the time gates
      Fixed an exploit where the Templar could be forced off its platform
      Daily Heroic Story
      Destination Materials now drop from completing the Daily Heroic
      Removed the ‘Relic Hunter’ Bounty
      Destination Materials now drop from completing the Daily Patrol Bounty

      Reduced Cryptarch reputation gain from Engrams, but reputation reward packages now have an increased chance for Legendary Engrams
      Players will now be able to use Vanguard Marks and Crucible Marks to purchase Spinmetal, Relic Iron, Spirit Bloom, and Helium Filaments from the Vanguard and Crucible Quartermasters in the Tower
      Xur now sells a new material, Exotic Shards, to upgrade the final node of Exotics for 7 Strange Coins
      Faction Class Items (ex: FWC Cloak, Dead Orbit Mark, etc.) are now replaced by Faction Emblems in the rank-up reward packages from Faction Vendors

      Networking fixes, which should reduce the instance of the Bee family of KTOs
      Fixed an issue in which using Xbox One party chat induced a slower frame rate

      Cancer-stricken teen mother dies to give her baby life
      An Idaho teenager diagnosed with cancer died last month after refusing to abort her unborn child or expose him to radiation.

      Jenni Lake, 17, of Pocatello, Idaho, was diagnosed with cancer in October 2010 after she began having severe migraines. Doctors in Salt Lake City discovered the cause after an MRI: a stage three astrocytoma, a tumor on the side of her brain. They gave her a 30 percent chance of surviving another two years.

      Phillips said the family’s oncologist told them “she would either have to terminate the pregnancy and continue the treatments, or stop the treatments, knowing that it could continue to grow again.â€

      Phillips said her daughter never considered having an abortion. She worried the 10-week-old child had undergone two rounds of chemotherapy.

      On November 9, just one month before her 18th birthday, Jenni gave birth to a healthy boy, named Chad Michael after his grandfathers. After the delivery, she told the nurse, “I’m done. I did what I was supposed to. My baby is going to get here safe.†Family hoped she could resume the chemotherapy.

      However, doctors discovered the tumors had gotten larger and spread to her spinal column. Nothing could be done. Less than two weeks later, she succumbed to cancer.

      Jenni’s last wish was that her baby lay beside her. Although she had lost her sight to the tumors, her last words were, “I can kind of see him.â€

      Phillips now sports a tattoo of the words “Jenni†and “John 15:13.†That verse from the fourth Gospel states, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.â€

      “It is very inspiring to see such a young woman cling to the moral choice of sparing her child’s life over her own,†wrote Thomas McKenna, president and founder of St. Gianna Physician’s Guild, in a statement e-mailed to “It is proof positive that God has written on a mother’s heart an unlimited capacity to love her unborn child.â€

    • Everyone at church given $500 to do good

      in Forums > Everyone at church given $500 to do good | Follow this topic



      CHICAGO (AP) — On a very memorable Sunday, Pastor Laura Truax surprised her congregation with a bold announcement: She was about to hand out money to everyone.

      Not a huge sum, but the pastor said the LaSalle Street Church had received a tidy $1.6 million from a real estate deal, and $160,000 — a typical 10 percent tithe — would be divided among some 320 regular attendees. Each would get a $500 check to do something positive for anything or anyone, including themselves.

      It was an unorthodox gesture, but Truax notes, LaSalle is "a gutsy little church" with a history of making waves around socially progressive causes it embraces. In 1972, when it stood in the shadow of the now-demolished Cabrini Green housing project, the church established a criminal defense legal aid clinic for the poor.

      Decades later, LaSalle remains an activist church, doing everything from feeding homeless families on Wednesday nights to buying an ambulance for a medical clinic in Niger. The non-denominational congregation is racially and economically diverse: More than 60 percent of members have advanced degrees; about a third live paycheck-to-paycheck.

      Not surprisingly, many donations from the congregation will reach far-flung places, including a school in the Himalayas, a health clinic in Uganda and an irrigation project in Tanzania. Closer to home, some checks are going to families and friends in financial trouble.

      Church members, Truax says, are doing just what she'd envisioned when she distributed the checks that first Sunday in September.

      If you didn't know, there was a shooting at Florida State University earlier today. This is a story from the event



      Earlier tonight there was a shooting at FSU, right as I was leaving Strozier. I didn't know this at the time, but the Shooter targeted me first. The shot I heard behind me I did not feel, nor did it hit me at all. He was about 5 feet from me, but he hit my books. Books one minute earlier I had checked out of the library, books that should not have stopped the bullet. But they did. I learned this about 3 hours after it happened, I never thought to check my bag. I assumed I wasn't a target, I assumed I was fine. The truth is I was almost killed tonight and God intervened. I know conceptually He can do all things, but to physically witness the impossible and to be surrounded by such grace is indescribable. To God be the glory, forever and ever, Amen.
