The title — where you have to survive in the woods while others are hunting you — is being unveiled at the PAX East event in Boston, and it will debut as a Steam Greenlit PC title in the fall. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies. As preparation for an impending Ice Age, a new half science experiment, half live entertainment project is launched. It’s called the Darwin Project, and it challenges inmates to survive the cold and fight to the death in a treacherous snow-covered arena. It’s like The Hunger Games in Canada. Above: Simon Darveau …

/ Go to Source Article Who would have thought that the prospects of the New York Islanders coming back to Long Island would gain traction? But if the big money associated with a possible move is any indication, the only remaining question is where. Reports suggest that Belmont Park is the place and the big money is coming from none other than the Wilpon family – owners of the New York Mets, James Dolan – executive chairman of Madison Square Garden (MSG) and New York Islander owners Jonathan Ledecky and Scott Malkin. Realistically a hockey arena at Belmont Park needs more revenue-generating activity to be financially viable. However, its location near the Long Island Rail Road and major highways provides …

/ Go to Source Article Fiery. Fierce. Sinus-clearing. Anyone who’s stood within wafting distance of a marathon knows the smell: Tiger Balm. The classic pain-relieving ointment can be traced to a Chinese herbalist who began selling it in the 1870s; subsequently commercialized by his sons, it’s been sold around the world ever since. The balm promises to “work where it hurts,” and many medical and sports professionals agree: A vigorous rub of the ointment on a sore muscle or bruised body part eases the aches. But unlike ibuprofen or aspirin, Tiger Balm doesn’t attack the source of the pain. It’s made of so-called counterirritants, substances that cause mild hot and cool sensations on your skin to distract your brain. In …

Poles improve balance and cut down significantly on wear and tear in your legs, especially in your knees, particularly heading downhill. But poles also make walking—one of the best and certainly easiest workouts you can do—even healthier. They stave off injuries and lessen impact, sure, but they also get your whole upper body involved.

Even the greatest football teams spend the majority of their time practicing blocking, tackling, and ball handling way before they start thinking about running trick plays.
