I signed up a log time ago to receive weather alerts from Franklin County. I just received a voice message and email saying the following:
“This is an important message from ALERT Franklin County.
The Columbus Division of Police have declared an emergency in the Downtown Columbus area. Citizens are advised to to avoid this area.”
For the past 15 years, I have been working in tech in Toronto, and have moved companies 3 times in that time period. Starting in 2016, I was brought on to manage a software development division at a mid-sized Canadian company. My department currently has 216 employees, ranging from software developers to devops to database administrators. If you live in or have visited Canada, I can more or less guarantee that you have used or worked with a product my team has built.
Shortly after I joined my current company, I fought for, and won, the ability for any of my staff to work from home indefinitely. I had worked remotely for 2 years at my previous job and very much enjoyed it, and I felt that it was something that technology-minded folks appreciate. Anyone choosing to take this option was given a work laptop, VPN access and any support they needed getting set up at home - we also gave a stipend to cover increased electricity, internet and phone usage. Additionally, work start and end... keep reading on reddit ➡

#Title Update 10 PTS Patch Notes
Reverted the increases to base NPC status effect resistances in heroic and legendary difficulties during PTS phase 2
NOTE: Some Legendary bosses and specific archetypes in Phase 3 unfortunately did not have their resistances reverted. This has already been fixed TU10 (where they've been fully reverted back to previously levels).
_Developer comment: One of the obvious advantages to running a PTS in multiple phases is we can be afforded the opportunity to try experimental ideas while receiving immediate feedback. We knew this would be a controversial change, but wanted to try it anyway... keep reading on reddit ➡
The Oilers last division title was in 1993, the Browns was in 1989.
#Welcome to Phase 2!
Welcome back to the Title Update 10 Public Test Server. As a reminder, the PTS is an in-progress build meaning certain gameplay improvements, bug fixes, and balance decisions are not final and are subject to change. Please also be aware that some text changes (e.g. wording on talents) might not be correctly reflected in the UI. We invite you to be a part of the TU10 creation process and highly encourage you to share and discuss your personal feedback and bug reports on the dedicated PTS forums.
If you have any questions about accessing and participating in the PTS, check out our FAQ.
For the second phase of the PTS, we’re hoping to hear feedback on these topics in particular:
So yeah, I'm back with more story leaks, before we get started, this thread will contain major spoilers for next three seasons. For some reasons they put Season 2, 3 and 4's briefing and Manhunt Mission audios in PTS files, I manage to listen to all of them, and I have to say the next three seasonal manhunts are really interesting, their writing direction take an unexpected route, without further ado, let's jump into the spoilers. But if you still want to wait until they finally reveal it in the future and experience them yourselves, leave the thread now before it's too late.
Seasonal Manhunt General Info
>!So, let's start with the Manhunt Targets. For Season 2, the season name is called "Keener's Legacy" (Found in PTS Patch Note in game, you can find it in the character selection menu). And guess who's the best Rogue candidate to inherit Keener's legacy? Let me give you a hint, he's one of TD1's popular loot sources for a lot of agent when launch. Take a guess before contin... keep reading on reddit ➡
I guess not much needs to be said about Ian or Joy Division that hasn't already been said. I think it's just such a shame that he passed so young, and never got to make more music. He was a troubled soul who made some fantastic and ground-breaking music, and he'll forever be an influence to me.
I saw a post about Matt Ionnidis and a comment saying the NFCE knows about him so i’m curious.
For the NFCS i would probably Deion Jones is pretty well known to be crazy good, but i don’t see much talk about him in the rest of the league.
As a Bengals/Lions fan I would be ok with seeing either the Browns or Vikings make it to the super bowl. Obviously my team over anybody else but if I HAD to make a choice I would be happy with those two making it.
Now that the 5th, 6th, and 7th seeds all get wild card spots, an entire division can make it to the playoffs in the same year. Which division will be the first to do this?
The only division I can think of getting this done is the NFC west. I think the Rams were the 7th seed last year and I can only see the Cardinals improving the next few years.
I don’t know where else to post this but I’m fucking done with the internet and society. Everyone needs to fucking chill. Stop hating each other. Is it really that hard. What the actual fuck. Stop letting yourselves get divided by the fucking media. It’s all a narrative. Wake the fuck up. Having some fucking maturity. Most people are pretty decent and good. Everyone is just doing their best. Yeah some people are racist. But even them, they are just doing their best based on their own experiences, beliefs, and upbringing. Every time some shit like what happened in Minnesota happens the entire fucking media focuses in on it to get everyone fucking incensed. If you’re black you better start hating white people. If you’re white you better fucking check your privilege. It’s all nonsense. Nothing is black and white. Things are complicated and nuanced. Black and white are only labels. I don’t know whether it was staged or not but I do know that the bloody media is doing a real good job of div... keep reading on reddit ➡
For anyone who is not familiar with the postmaster in destiny, if you ever get disconnected or if your game crashes or leave a mission, your unclaimed loot from the open world and missions will be sent to the postmaster where you can claim them.
I really wish division had a feature like this since yesterday I ran a Heroic mission and the boss dropped an exotic, but sadly before I could pick it the group leader restarted the mission and we were all back to start of the mission.
Anyways just a small suggestion.
Note: if you feel comparing Destiny with Division hurts your ego and morals then downvote arrow in your left.
Hi everyone I have made a documentary I think you will all enjoy. It's about two veterans who met virtually playing Division 2. One lives in Norwich (Garry, 74) the other in America (Mike, 71) with the help of grandaughter Tallulah we fly Garry to LA to meet Mike IRL.
It shows what a great game this is for people especially the elderly.
The only other division in that span to post an under .500 record is the NFC South (1-2), who also happen to be the only other division to send 3 or more different teams to the Superbowl in this span.
1980s NFC East: (All modern NFCE teams made it, except for the 5th team, the St Louis Cardinals).
1990s AFC West: (All modern AFCW teams made it, except for the 5th team, the Seattle Seahawks)
1990s AFC East: 5 teams made it (the 5th team was the Colts)
2000s NFC South
2010s NFC West
Note: the 1980s AFCW and 1990s NFCC (modern NFC North) both sent 4 teams, but since the Chiefs and Bears (respectively) didn’t make it and since they’re modern teams in their divisions I had to leave them off the official list
The phrase "gaming in 2018" is hallmarked by one title in particular, the game that has become the 'F-word' of video games all over the world. While other popular (and similar) titles have risen, surpassed, or been overtaken by it, the trend was clear in mid-2017, and that trend has continued strongly into the early months of 2020. I am, of course, referring specifically to the multiplayer game mode named after the 2000's movie, "Battle Royale".
There is one battle royale game that has seemed to fly almost completely under the radar. Tom Clancy's The Division 1's 1.5 update provided a new game mode named, quite aptly, 'Survival'. It introduced new enemy behavior, new micro-scenarios, as well a new enemy type. Like most battle royales, its PVP (player vs player) mode allows players to stalk others, claim their dropped loot, and in turn get ambushed themselves. It provides a PVE (player versus environment) element as well, with NPCs dotting the maps to harass and dissuade players, as w... keep reading on reddit ➡
In the AFC East, only Buffalo is lacking one.
The AFC North is waiting on Cleveland and Cincinnatti, while the AFC South needs three teams and the AFC West just needs the
Clippers Chargers to step up.
In the NFC, the South needs Carolina and Atlanta, the West needs Arizona, and the North is waiting on Detroit and Minnesota.
I think Tyson KOs Wilder. He times him perfectly and never lets him get any momentum or rhythm. Wilder is physically huge with a long reach and tons of power . But he's still very amateurish and that would be exposed quickly.
Fury and Joshua can probably beat Mike. Fury would outbox him and sting him all through the first few rounds. Then, as long as Fury could avoid and/or sustain a couple of big bombs, it would be target practice for him.
Joshua.... I am a bit less confident in Joshua, for the obvious reason that a lesser fighter got the better of him recently. So there are clearly vulnerabilities there. But on his best night, Joshua probably has the tools to outbox Mike Tyson and stop him in the later rounds.
Even in his prime, Tyson became and ordinary fighter after about 5-6 rounds. So if you're one the best of today you just need to hang on until the bell rings for 6 or 7.
#Feedback, Bug Report
Title Update 10 has been deployed on PTS and it is also your opportunity to give feedback.
=> Patch Notes
Keep in mind - the best way to give direct feedback to massive is the Official Forums, but we also provide you with the option to give it here.
What experience should I expect on the PTS?
The PTS is a testing server. By playing on the PTS, you must understand that:
#Title Update 9.1 Delay
We previously mentioned that Title Update 9.1 was meant to be deployed during a maintenance tomorrow but we made the decision today to delay the update, as we feel further testing is needed to ensure we avoid the introduction of new issues and deliver a high quality patch. We aim to get TU9.1 into your hands as soon as possible and our current goal is to deploy the update this week.
Thank you for your understanding in the meantime.
It occurred to me yesterday that the AFC west had become an anomaly in this regard. The Chargers played on grass in San Diego and in their rented soccer stadium. The Raiders played on grass (and dirt) in their baseball stadium and will reportedly play in natural grass in LV. The Broncos play on natural grass while their fans smoke natural grass. The Chiefs have had natural grass for years since moving away from Astro turf in the late 80’s(ish).
But now, the Chargers are ruining this for everyone by renting a room in the Rams’ house where they will play on field turf. This is incredibly displeasing to me.
FWIW, I fact checked myself by going through every division until I came upon a franchise that plays on an artificial surface:
NFCW: Seattle AFCN: Cincinnati NFCN: Detroit AFCS: Houston NFCS: Atlanta AFCE: Buffalo NFCE: Dallas
