    This week New York Magazine featured a new article by journalist David Wallace-Wells about the state of the fight against global warming.

    He warns that "Already, the planet is warmer, at just 1.2 degrees, than it has ever been..." But there's also some good news:Just a half-decade ago, it was widely believed that a "business as usual" emissions path would bring the planet four or five degrees of warming — enough to make large parts of Earth effectively uninhabitable. Now, thanks to the rapid death of coal, the revolution in the price of renewable energy, and a global climate politics forged by a generational awakening, the expectation is for about three degrees. Recent pledges could bring us closer to two. All of these projections sketch a hazardous and unequal future, and all are clouded with uncertainties — about the climate system, about technology, about the dexterity and intensity of human response, about how inequitably the most punishing impacts will be distributed. Yet if each half-degree of warming marks an entirely different level of suffering, we appear to have shaved a few of them off our likeliest end stage in not much time at all.

    The next half-degrees will be harder to shave off, and the most crucial increment — getting from two degrees to 1.5 — perhaps impossible, dashing the dream of avoiding what was long described as "catastrophic" change. But for a climate alarmist like me, seeing clearly the state of the planet's future now requires a conspicuous kind of double vision, in which a guarded optimism seems perhaps as reasonable as panic. Given how long we've waited to move, what counts now as a best-case outcome remains grim. It also appears, miraculously, within reach....

    The price of solar energy has fallen ninefold over the past decade, as has the price of lithium batteries, critical to the growth of electric cars. The costs of utility-scale batteries, which could solve the "intermittency" (i.e., cloudy day) problem of renewables and help power whole cities in relatively short order, have fallen 70 percent since just 2015. Wind power is 40 percent cheaper than it was a decade ago, with offshore wind experiencing an even steeper decline. Overall, renewable energy is less expensive than dirty energy almost everywhere on the planet, and in many places it is simply cheaper to build new renewable capacity than to continue running the old fossil-fuel infrastructure. Oil demand and carbon emissions may both have peaked this year. Eighty percent of coal plants planned in Asia's developing countries have been shelved... [I]n the fall, the U.K. pledged to ban nonelectrics by 2030 — a once-unthinkable law coming both too slow and much more quickly than seemed possible not very long ago. Similar plans are now in place in 16 other countries, plus Massachusetts and California. Canada recently raised its tax on carbon sixfold. Italy cut its power-sector emissions 65 percent between 2012 and 2019, and Denmark is now aiming to reduce its overall emissions 70 percent by 2030...

    [F]or all their momentum, renewables still only make up 10 percent of global electricity production. But alarmists have to take the good news where they find it....

    The author also spoke to Pulitzer Prize-winner environmentalist author Elizabeth Kolbert about her new book Under a White Sky:In her book, Kolbert sketches a spectrum of interventions, from electrifying rivers to using CRISPR to save endangered species to solar geoengineering, often called "solar-radiation management," by which aerosol particles are suspended in the stratosphere to deflect some sunlight back into outer space and artificially cool the planet. "There is a slippery slope here, you know?" she says. "And where does that end?

    "But there are not a lot of great choices. We're not returning to a preindustrial climate — not in my lifetime, not in your lifetime."

    Twitter unveiled a feature Monday meant to bolster its efforts to combat misinformation and disinformation by tapping users in a fashion similar to Wikipedia to flag potentially misleading tweets. From a report:The new system allows users to discuss and provide context to tweets they believe are misleading or false. The project, titled Birdwatch, is a standalone section of Twitter that will at first only be available to a small set of users, largely on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority will not be provided to high-profile people or traditional fact-checkers, but users will have to use an account tied to a real phone number and email address.

    "Birdwatch allows people to identify information in Tweets they believe is misleading or false, and write notes that provide informative context," Twitter Vice President of Product Keith Coleman wrote in a press release. "We believe this approach has the potential to respond quickly when misleading information spreads, adding context that people trust and find valuable." While Birdwatch will initially be cordoned off to a separate section of Twitter, the company said "eventually we aim to make notes visible directly on Tweets for the global Twitter audience, when there is consensus from a broad and diverse set of contributors."

    Our first priority in writing this article is to help you avoid some of the unpleasant experiences we experienced as novice online casino players. Experiences that we would have easily avoided if an experienced player had been found to point them out to us before we started our beautiful journey, or if someone had told us which are the best online casinos.Check if the online casino you chose is legal and licensed To check if an online casino is legal and licensed is easy, although many players seem to forget about this issue. Especially players who contact the object for the first time several times do not know the difference between a licensed and an unlicensed casino.

    Choose a casino that is operating for a long time

    It would be best if you weren't hesitant to play in reputable casinos that have proven their worth. New casinos often don't offer similar offers to old ones and may not be available for a few years. A big brand that has existed for many years will definitely provide more games and will have gained the experience to solve any problem that arises. Also, you can trust the casino that they will pay you, and you won't lose your money, or it won't close the next day and disappear.

    Never register under a fake name

    One of the worst mistakes that we can think of is registering under a fake name. All licensed casinos are obliged to ask for your personal identification. Even if they don't ask you immediately, they will when you apply for a withdrawal. If the information you have given doesn't match, then your account will be blocked, and you won't get paid, and that would be such a pity after all the effort you have made.

    Check which payment methods the casino accepts

    Always check the small details when you want to play with real money. One important thing you should always check is the withdrawal and payment methods. Don't waste your time registering and give all your info if you don't like the way they operate. Always check the terms of payment as some players want to deposit with Paysafe cards, others with a credit card, others with e-wallets, while others with bank transfer and the casinos may accept specific ways.

    Read the terms of use of each casino

    The new players don't like when their casino asks for identification at the first withdrawal, οr if it has a maximum withdrawal limit. However, if they had read beforehand the terms and conditions, they would know what to do. Take your time reading everything and make sure you understand all the terms because once you agree, there is no way back.

    Check what games each casino offers

    Why does a player sign up for an online casino? To play specific games that they like. It's really impressive for a player to want to play, say, the Book of RA, but not check if the casino of their choice offers Novomatic games! So, we always check if our choice's casino provides the games we want, and then we register. We can also check if it has the variety that we are looking for since nowadays all the online casinos compete in which has the best and the biggest number of games to entertain their players.

    Learn the rules

    Everyone thinks that all you need to win is luck. However, there are some games like blackjack that the win depends more on how you play. The most responsible thing to do since you play with real money is to learn all the rules of the game you chose to play.

    Do not fall into the delusion of the gambler

    Many players believe that if a bet, such as the black-red of roulette, has verified red more than once, then the chances of black appearing are increased. The reality is that each round is a new round, so the odds between black and red will always be 50%/50%. This is also called a gambler's delusion. So, pay close attention to strategies like Martingale that are partly based on this theory.

    Always play responsibly

    Playing online casino games can be fun and sometimes rewarding, but it can be dangerous for some players in some cases. We are talking about players who are prone to addictions. Be aware of the best gambling best practices and always set limits on how much money you can spend at a casino. Never go beyond your budget, as that’s where the addiction can begin, and it can have devastating consequences.

    Enjoy

    There is a chance you will win, but this isn't an everyday phenomenon. If you play just for the win, then you may be disappointed. Play for the fun and the experience, and if you win, then celebrate. If you lose, then smile and move on.

    2. Xbox News

    Less than 18 hours after it was announced, Xbox has scrapped its plans to raise the price of its Xbox Live Gold subscription service.
    The firm had previously announced that its Gold membership scheme, which is what gamers need to be able to play Xbox games online, would be increasing by $1 for a one-month subscription, or $5 for three months. That would be $10.99 for a month, $29.99 for three months and $59.99 for six months. That six-month price is what Xbox had been charging for a 12-month subscription.,
    However, some fans were angry at the increase. Analysts suggested this was an aggressive effort from Microsoft to convince its Gold user base to upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which combines Gold with the firm's Game Pass offering (where players can download hundreds of games on Xbox and PC). Other fans took to social media to criticise the move taking place so soon after the launch of the new Xbox consoles, and during the current uncertain economic situation caused by COVID-19.
    Microsoft reacted quickly, however, and has reversed its decision. The firm has also announced that free-to-play games on Xbox will no-longer require Gold membership at all. This comes ahead of the launch of Halo: Infinite later this year, which will feature a free-to-play multiplayer mode.

    Hitman 3 has taken No.1 in the UK boxed charts, with launch sales up 17% over its predecessor.
    Developed and owned by IO Interactive, Hitman 3's boxed release was handled by Square Enix, the company that previously owned the franchise before letting it go. The last game, 2018's Hitman 2, was published by Warner Bros.
    The PS5 version of the game was by far the dominant edition, accounting for 49% of sales. The Xbox version accounted for 27%, while the PS4 version made up 25%. Of course, this is just physical games, the majority of Hitman 3's sales will have taken place in the digital download space.
    Hitman's chart-topping debut means that Animal Crossing: New Horizons drops to No.2, although only 800 games separates the two titles. Animal Crossing's sales dropped 8% week-on-week.

    GAME has offered more insight into the systems it has in place to prevent scalpers using bots to snap up new PlayStation 5 stock.
    A statement released to VGC assured that the UK retailer is only selling one PS5 unit per customer and has checks and processes to ensure no one is purchasing multiple consoles.
    "PlayStation 5 [continues] to be in very high demand and that demand far outweighs current supply," the spokesperson said. "We have strong measures in place to help ensure that our 'one per customer' statement is maintained to allow for as many individual customers to successfully purchase as possible.
    "All pre-orders are subject to automatic checks, and order updates -- such as cancellations following these checks -- take place after a customer will have received a valid order confirmation email.
    "At the present time, these orders are still pre-orders and as such no payments have yet been taken from customers. Payments will commence once our order checks have been completed."

    FIFA 21 was the best-selling physical game across the vast majority of Europe, according to a new report from GfK Entertainment.
    The evaluation is based on physical games sales across Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
    According to the report, FIFA 21 was the biggest selling game of last year in 16 of the 19 countries surveyed, including the UK, Spain, Germany and Italy.
    The only exceptions were: Russia, where The Last of Us: Part 2 reigned supreme; Finland, where Minecraft took the top spot; and France, where Animal Crossing: New Horizons was the biggest hit.
    FIFA 21 continues the series' success, after FIFA dominated European retail in 2019, 2018 and 2017.
    Of more interest was Nintendo's performance, which held both the second and third best-selling games in Europe last year -- Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, respectively.
    Animal Crossing's success is perhaps no surprise given how well it has performed since launching in March 2020. The game reached the top three in almost half of the countries featured.
    However, despite being released as far back as April 2017, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continues to be a huge seller at retail, taking a top three position in seven regions.
    It wasn't the only long-running title in the upper echelons of GfK's ranking

    Big news for Arabic speaking enthusiasts who know the game, and for new players as well who didn’t get the chance to experience the glory of the golden JRPG era!
    Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the first release of Chrono Trigger, the people at the Arabic community found the lack of serious JRPG translations available.
    Given that, ExtraOrdinary decided to present a gift to the community knowing the hurdles of the Arabic script; right-to-left text flow, numerals need special handling and menu strings are very tricky to display within those requirements too.
    This is by far the most justified method to display Arabic strings without making the player confused about dialogue messages or item names for example being displayed in reverse which happened in many trials before in other titles.
    So, enjoy the translation!
    Thanks a lot for you all in RHDN community!
