Player “Mossy” earned his spot in Champs with a whopping 669 rounds survived. This was no easy task because zombies can sponge so many bullets and take you down fast in high rounds. Mossy used electric traps, strategic routes, and a whole lot of patience to beat out the competition, with his winning performance taking 57 hours. (Thankfully, you can hit pause and take a break on solo Zombies mode, but that’s still a lot of hours spent herding and electrocuting the undead.) Mossy currently holds 76 Zombies world records.
Origins is probably one of the most interesting First Room challenge maps, because you can complete objectives to obtain items otherwise inaccessible while locked in the starting room, such as the Double Tap perk and an upgraded gun. 665 headshots will allow a player to obtain an upgraded gun from the mystery box, but whether that weapon is actually good is a matter of chance. Zombies also randomly drop Zombie Blood, which automatically disguises players as zombies for a short time to prevent being attacked.
Illinois has a reputation of passing strict data privacy legislation. The state’s Biometric Information Privacy Act prohibits tech companies from using biometric identifiers—like face scans and fingerprints—without consent. Their Right To Know Act—which passed in May, but was put on hold—requires companies such as Facebook, Amazon, and Google to disclose what data has been collected from consumers and shared with third parties.
According to Reuters , storm-related shutdowns have knocked approximately 978,568 barrels of oil per day off the US’ “roughly million bpd pumped from the Gulf,” per the estimate of the Interior Department’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. That’s up from a Friday estimate of 77 percent, when numerous oil production facilities were taken offline in preparation for Harvey’s homecoming.
Volkswagen’s German site and various media outlets confirmed the hatchback’s death this week, saying that prospective buyers in the markets where the Scirocco is sold cannot order new ones, but can only buy the current supply. As Volkswagen deals with the massive costs of its diesel emissions cheating scandal, and retools to focus on electric vehicles and giant SUVs that Americans might actually buy, no Scirocco replacement is in sight—or likely to happen at all.
Player “KingKorbs” raced through the Revelations map, completing its complex Easter Egg speed run with a time of 95:78. To put this time in comparison, the 7th through 65th place finishers took an hour or longer to complete. KingKorbs made use of the “Anywhere But Here” Gobblegum, which lets you randomly teleport to another location. This, too, has a wild element of chance, since you can’t choose where you end up. KingKorbs holds 8 Zombies world records, 7 of which are Easter Egg speedruns.
The Gorod Krovi Easter Egg speed run offered the most intensely tight competition, but “Maitrash” squeezed in at first place with a time of 96:69, about one second faster than the 7nd place player. Maitrash also used Anywhere But Here to randomly teleport around the map, his second use of the Gobblegum fortuitiously teleporting him close to the next step in his Easter Egg sequence.
At any rate, the Mustang, while more expensive, totally has the Scirocco outclassed in terms of power and driving dynamics and has since gone on to become the best-selling sports car in Europe. Even Volkswagen’s own GTI and Golf R make for more practical and modern propositions. Considering the competition it now faces, and the general global market shift toward crossovers and SUVs, it’s easy to see why the Scirocco died and hard to see why VW would want to put any effort into replacing it.
Per the Associated Press , before the hurricane made landfall on Friday night, “Dozens of oil and gas platforms had been evacuated, at least three refineries had closed and at least two petrochemical plants had suspended operations.” If the storm continues dumping tens of inches of water across large swathes of Texas, as is expected, flooding in the Houston and Beaumont areas could continue to affect oil production.
It’s increasingly difficult to do anything on your phone nowadays without sharing your geolocation information. Certain Snapchat filters, Facebook status updates, Instagrams, and even text messages are all potentially tied to geolocation data. It’s relatively simple for app developers to build in geolocation functionality—and many services require users to opt-in to sharing location data. But now the state of Illinois wants ensure that all companies extracting geolocation data from individuals must provide an opt-in, or else they’ll have to pay up.
