Sony says after July 13th, new PS4 games must be PS5 compatible

According to a report from Eurogamer, Sony has begun telling PlayStation 4 developers to prepare for the launch of the PlayStation 5 in a big new way. Starting on July 13th, games submitted for certification on PlayStation 4 must be compatible with PlayStation 5. This news comes by way of developer documentation apparently posted on PlayStation's internal partner website, that Eurogamer got its hands on. Apparently developers are able to use their PS4 devkits to perform this check, thanks to an update released in April. The documentation also apparently states that "compatibility" means that the submission code runs without issues on the PlayStation 5, and provides the same features on PS5 as PS4. Developers who submit for certification before July 13th are apparently "strongly recommended" to prepare PS5 compatibility as well.

Understanding court cases and their settlement

"It would be best if settlement is pursued and achieved without the needless filing of court cases."   Substantive laws and the Rules of Court are passed with policies to allow aggrieved individuals, juridical entities, and entities authorized by the law to institute actions to vindicate rights violated or seek redress for breach of rights from the court. The aggrieved may file civil or criminal actions: civil actions are commenced for the protection of a right or prevention of a wrong (Section 3 (a), Rule 1 of the Rules of Civil Procedure) while criminal actions are initiated by the State to prosecute an offender for an act or omission punishable by law (Section 3 (b), Rule 1 of the Rules of Civil Procedure). There is another type of action which is loosely treated in practice as civil actions since it seeks no penal sanction but is a remedy sought by a litigant to establish a status, a right, or a particular fact – these are known as special proceedings (Section 3 (c), Rule 1 of the Rules of Court).

Iconic Cork pub's heartbreaking image of unused kegs being returned to suppliers sends fans into meltdown

ONE OF Ireland’s oldest and most iconic pubs has posted a picture that has pint-lovers across Ireland crying into their screens. Like pubs all over the country, Shelbourne Bar in Cork has been closed ever since the Irish government ordered businesses to close their doors as part of a nationwide lockdown designed to slow the spread of coronavirus. First opened in 1895, the legendary whiskey bar is a part of life for so many in the Irish city and a popular stop-off for tourists and visitors from all around. The current closure represents one of the longest in the pub’s 125-year history. It’s a truly extraordinary time and while Ireland appears to be over the worst of the coronavirus pandemic with pubs and bars set to reopen from August 10, the closures have come at a huge cost both personally and financially.

Cocooning Offaly farmer strikes up unlikely friendship with wild fox during lockdown

AN IRISH farmer has struck up a surprising new friendship with a wild fox during lockdown. Farmers and foxes have, historically speaking, never really seen eye to eye. That certainly used to be the case for retired dairy farmer Tony Bergin. But things changed just over two months ago when the 90-year-old was ordered to stay indoors at his home near Roscrea as part of the government’s strict measures for halting the spread of coronavirus. Lockdown has proven a trying time for everyone, especially those forced to cocoon at home away from their immediate family and friends. Advertisement Tony, however, soon found himself in good company, as RTE reports. At some point during those early, uncertain, weeks a wild fox began paying him regular visits. Over time, an understanding and, eventually, friendship developed between the pair. Now, most evenings after dinner, the 90-year-old heads out to his yard to catch up with his pal. After a few whistles, Tony is able to coax his furry companion out for a bite to eat. The…

Twitter hides Trump tweet for 'glorifying violence'

SAN FRANCISCO - Twitter has hidden a tweet by President Donald Trump from his profile, saying it violates rules about glorifying violence. It did the same hours later when the official White House account tweeted a copy of the president's words. Instead of being deleted, both tweets can be viewed by clicking on a prominent warning. It says that "Twitter has determined that it may be in the public's interest for the Tweet to remain accessible." This is the latest twist in an escalating row between Twitter and the White House. The US president finds himself in unexpected company alongside other world leaders whose tweets have been censored. In February 2019, Twitter had a tweet by Iranian Leader Supreme Ayatollah Ali Khamenei removed after it appeared to threaten author Salman Rushdie. Also last year, several accounts associated with Cuban President Raul Castro and members of his government were suspended, citing policy violations. Trump was tweeting about the US city of Minneapolis, which has seen consecutive…

MINNEAPOLIS - In an unusually swift move, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman on Friday afternoon announced criminal charges against the Minneapolis police officer who killed George Floyd. It was an act caught on video and seen around the world, turning Minneapolis and St. Paul into a tinderbox as angry demonstrators set a police station ablaze and looted and destroyed several businesses. The Twin Cities are imposing a dust to dawn curfew their mayors declared Friday. The curfews will last until 6 a.m. Saturday, and then go into effect again at 8 p.m. Saturday, expiring 6 a.m. Sunday. "During the curfew, all persons must not travel on any public street or in any public place," according to Mayor Jacob Frey's resolution. St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter declared a state of local emergency Friday and announced the curfew, as well as inviting everyone to observe an hour of prayer from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. The curfews do not extend to people traveling to or from work, emergency services, law enforcement, people seeking…

Short-term rentals, cool centers reopening

INLAND EMPIRE – (INT) – With thoughts of summer vacation, Riverside County is easing restrictions on short-term rentals. Homeowners who rent single occupancy residences for short-term stays may resume operations in Riverside County. Operators should implement safety precautions and disinfectant protocols outlined in the local guidance developed by the Riverside County Economic Recovery Task Force. This directive does not include hotels, motels and inns, which the State of California has prohibited as part of the statewide stay-at-home order. However, in alignment with other Southern Californian counties, short-term vacation rentals at single occupancy homes may resume. The Riverside County guidance includes the following: • Rentals allowed in private homes where the guest rents the entire home and does not share any common areas with others. Home-sharing is not allowed. • No events or group gatherings are permitted until approved by the State of California. Only guests registered for the home should be on premise.…

School districts struggle with student food insecurity

SACRAMENTO – (INT) - Food insecurity—either concerns around having enough food or outright hunger—has increased sharply across California. Nationally, among children age 12 and under, the rate is up 14 points—from about 3% in 2018 to 17% in April 2020. During the ongoing COVID-19 school closures, even large districts appear to be serving fewer free and low-cost meals than before the pandemic, while rural or small districts face their own challenges in reaching students. Typically about 3.7 million California students, or 60%, qualify for free or reduced-price meals, a number that likely shot up under shelter-in-place orders. When classes are in session, these students may receive most of their food at school. Since schools closed in March, districts have set up more than 4,700 grab-and-go sites to continue providing meals to students, the Public Policy Institute of California found. Many districts provide meals to everyone under the age of 18. San Diego Unified is distributing one extra breakfast and lunch to…

Coalition warns schools cannot safely open this fall

SACRAMENTO – (INT) - The Education Coalition, comprised of the nine statewide K-12 education associations that work to advocate for the six million students in California’s public schools and colleges, urged California’s lawmakers to adopt a funding solution to the COVID-19-related budget crisis in the June budget. The group said that without adequate funding, schools cannot open on time safely. Under the Governor’s proposed budget, a 10% cut ($6.5 billion) to the Local Control Funding Formula equates to: • Cutting $1,230 per student, or • Cutting $21,667 per classroom, or • Increasing class sizes by 19%, or • Laying off more than 57,600 teachers, or • Laying off more than 125,000 education support professionals. The group announced Thursday that preparing each classroom, library, gym, lunchroom, and school bus for the safe return of students, teachers, and staff will require significant resources and planning. Without adequate funding, this will not be feasible, even after public health officials provide guidance…

Longer lines for rides, and no parade: Theme parks to open, but will visitors return?

Mickey Mouse and Cinderella are back to rescue your summer, but there won’t be any hugs, and no parade, either. Over the next two months, some of the nation’s biggest theme parks will be opening their gates to the public again. The coronavirus pandemic forced parks to close in March, leading to billions of dollars in lost revenue for major operators such as Disney and Universal. Now, theme parks are dipping a toe in the water, opening to limited capacity and executing a complicated plan to accommodate reservations, while trying to return furloughed employees and train them on a host of new procedures. Universal Orlando opens its doors to the public on June 5, SeaWorld on June 11, and by mid-July Disney’s parks will welcome thousands of vacationers, though Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis still has to give final approval. Theme park operators have spent months racking their brains, consulting with health experts, and examining data models on how to reduce crowd size and mitigate health risks. All of that adds up to a…

Coronavirus updates: NYC on track to reopen June 8; Trump to scrap relationship with WHO

New York City is on track to begin reopening June 8, consumer spending in the U.S. has dropped dramatically, and that cold you had in December or early January was not coronavirus, a new study says. Meanwhile, President Trump says he’s terminating US relationship with the World Health Organization. There are more than 5.8 million confirmed cases around the world, with 1.7 million in the United States, according to the Johns Hopkins University data dashboard. The virus has killed more than 101,000 people in the U.S., and over 360,000 people worldwide. Here are a few developments to know: · A new comprehensive federal study says the coronavirus arrived in the U.S. starting in mid-January to early February. · Gov.

Job losses hit less-educated hardest

SAN FRANCISCO - (INT) - The COVID-19 recession has already led to much larger declines in employment than occurred throughout the Great Recession, and jobs have been lost much more quickly. As with past recessions, less-educated workers are bearing the brunt of these declines. Nationwide, almost 20 million workers lost jobs between February and April this year (among adults age 25 and over). Employment declined by about 7 million over a much longer period during the Great Recession. So far, less-educated workers—those without bachelor’s or graduate degrees—have accounted for 80% of all employment declines in the pandemic recession. Workers with degrees also tend to do better during economic recoveries. After the Great Recession, employment growth among educated workers was robust, but employment among less-educated workers never fully recovered. Employment among college graduates is much higher today (by about 11 million) than at the economic peak prior to the Great Recession. In contrast, employment among less…

SOUTHLAND – (INT) – Supply and demand is pushing gasoline prices higher as the COVID-19 lock-down eases and people become more mobile. Prices are moving closer to 3-dollars-a-gallon. The Automobile Club’s Gas Watch puts the California average for 87-octane regular at $2.88. In the Riverside-San Bernardino area, pump prices gained 6-cents-a-gallon the past week for an average of $2.85. “Gas price averages continue to be more than a dollar lower than this time last year and more than 60 cents lower than at the beginning of March when the pandemic began affecting gasoline demand,” Auto Club spokesman Jeffrey Spring said.
