華州政府官員上周五宣佈不斷惡化持續乾旱情勢,可能給本州帶來一些衍生問題:提旱發生更多山林野火,逾10億元農作物預料遭受損失,水位下降對魚群產卵形成威脅,恐怕亦會影響水力發電產量。英斯利州長周五宣佈全州進入乾旱緊急狀態,州府官員應排除障礙,加速撥款處理缺水引發的諸多困難。

劉備與諸葛亮關係真那麼鐵嗎?
Wednesday, 20 May 2015 14:34

劉備於207年「三顧茅廬」,請出智者諸葛亮為其效力。據史料記載,此二人一見如故,劉備曾說過:「孤之有孔明,猶魚之有水也。」後人自然認為此君臣二人是「魚水」關係。據《三國演義》中的描寫,劉備對於雄才大略的諸葛亮是十分信任的,遇到軍政大事無不請他出謀劃策,劉備對其簡直就是言聽計從。那麼,歷史上,此二人這種君臣相得、猶如魚水的關係果真如此嗎?

 
  • Have you ever noticed how the moment you become open to receiving, the lessons, revelations, and messages begin to flood your being.

  • KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) -- Nepal must take lessons from earthquake-hit countries such as Mexico and strictly enforce existing building laws as it prepares to rebuild from two major quakes, a senior United Nations official said Wednesday.

  • GOLETA, Calif. (AP) -- Slicks of oil that spilled into California coastal waters from an onshore pipeline spanned a total of 9 miles Wednesday, and a company official said the line was operating at full capacity when it broke, suggesting much more oil escaped than initially estimated.

  • BEIJING (AP) _ U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is urging China to halt increasingly assertive actions it is taking in the South China Sea.

    Amid verbal sparring between Washington and Beijing over land reclamation projects that China is conducting in disputed waters, Kerry urged Chinese officials to reduce tensions in the South China Sea.

  • BEIRUT (AP) -- Islamic State militants seized parts of the ancient town of Palmyra in central Syria on Wednesday after fierce clashes with government troops, renewing fears the extremist group would destroy the priceless archaeological site if it reaches the ruins.

  • YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) _ This year's water supply outlook for the Yakima Basin continues to decline.

    The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is now predicting that holders of junior water rights will receive only 44 percent of their normal water this year.

  • Axiom Verge (PC) Box (http://www.axiomverge.com/) Those familiar with the great Joss Whedon are familiar with his recent work on the Avenger’s movies for Marvel Studios as writer, producer, and director if his films. Tom Happ, much in the vein of the aforementioned film giant, is the sole developer, artist, and musician of Axiom Verge, the result of nearly 5 long years of determined work (an incredible feat considering Happ commitment to working full time). Though not restricted by the technical limitations of the era, Axiom Verge draws heavily from the NES/SNES era of gaming, and, at first glance, could be mistaken for a Contra/Metroid reimagining. The sounds, layouts, and graphics harken back to an era where games were simple, yet relentlessly challenging, and while the graphics are absolutely gorgeous, the gameplay what separates this gem from many retro indie titles flooding the market in recent years.



  • Killing Floor 2 (PC) Box (http://www.killingfloor2.com/) Killing Floor set the stage for cooperative first person shooters when it released as a mod nearly 10 years ago, and again in its retail incarnation in 2009. The series excels in its formula, pitting squads of players against increasingly difficult hordes of zombies, leading up to climactic boss battles. Each wave is divided into rounds, where players can use their currency to purchase new guns, armor, ammo, and even trade with other players.

  • Idea Factory International’s Inaugural Press Event Recap (http://www.ideafintl.com/) At a swanky bar in the heart of downtown San Francisco, Idea Factory International held their inaugural press event to detail upcoming games for 2015. Multiple games from the popular HyperDimension series made an appearance, along with the soon-to-be-released Omega Quintet and an unveiling for the upcoming Amnesia: Memories, which will release later this year on Vita and PC.
  • Dark Souls 2 Scholars of The First Sin Box Art (http://www.darksoulsii.com/us/index.php) The Souls series exists as one of my favorite current franchises, so when the opportunity came to review the current gen port, including all of the DLC released last year and the improvements made with the newest update 1.10, I couldn’t resist staking my claim on the title. This review will mostly cover the improvements and upgrades made over last gen, and provide insight into the newest features available with Scholar of the First Sin.
  • Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (PS4, XB1) Box Art (http://finalfantasytype0.com/) Rated T by ESRB Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, an action-RPG released last month for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles, exists as a stark departure from what Final Fantasy fans have come to expect from the series only in regards to the gameplay. Fans can still expect to find series tropes such as moogles and chocobos, a brilliant soundtrack, and a somewhat overzealous storyline, but this entry trades in the crusty turn-based combat of games past for sleeker, fast-paced combat that relies as much on reflexes as it does careful strategy.
  • Hotline Miami 2 (PS4, PS3, Vita, PC, Mac) Cover(http://www.devolverdigital.com/games/view/hotline-miami-2-wrong-number)
    It’s time to travel back in time again, this time to the early 90’s in Miami, to follow a new cast of mysterious murderers and how their stories intertwine in this messed up paradise. I’m talking of course, about Hotline Miami 2, a game so unique, it’s hard to describe into words. The original basically created its own sub-genre of the top down shooter it was so unique. The sequel carries this same gameplay mechanic, but just ramps of the difficulty, and ramps up the fun

  • Helldivers (PS4, PS3, Vita) Review (http://www.playstation.com/en-us/games/helldivers-ps4/)Arrowhead Game Studios’ latest game Helldivers draws heavy aesthetic influence from movie Starship Troopers and recent Activision game Destiny, and relies on precise cooperation to overcome Super Earth’s innumerable enemies. It’s because of the heavy co-op emphasis that we’ve decided to split this review into two impressions based on our time playing this game online over the past few days.
