A recent ultra marathon held in a small Ho Chi Minh City neighborhood has brought a lot of attention to the sport's growing popularity in the southern metropolis. The 3rd Ultra Night Marathon is an annual ultra marathon with 30km, 50km, and 80km options organized by the Run For Fun (RFF) Club in District 7’s Phu My Hung New Urban Area. This latest event began at 8:00 pm on December 29 and ended at 8:00 am the following morning.

Weather researchers from Norman, Oklahoma on Monday were employing drones to comb the St. Landry Parish area near the site of a Saturday tornado that claimed a life and destroyed or damaged at least 16 homes. Meanwhile, occupants of most of the residences had found shelter, at least temporarily, by Monday. Housing was being sought for one resident, an elderly man, whose home was destroyed, Van Reed, director of the St. Landry Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said. In addition to the damage to homes, a portion of a nearby levee and a nearby convenience store also sustained damage from the tornado, Reed said. The U.S. Corps of Engineers was expected to travel to St. Landry to make inspections on the levee. And an owl, apparently injured in the storm, was recovered in the affected area and treated locally. Reed said he found the bird near a home where he had stopped to check for injured residents. The owl had about a 50 percent chance of surviving … [Read more...] about ‘It was a bad storm’: Researchers assess growing toll of powerful St. Landry tornado
The bitter court fight between Apple and Epic is primarily focused on the mobile-gaming landscape and Apple's iron-fisted control of the iOS App Store. But recent court filings in that case have also given the public a rare glimpse into just how much money Epic is throwing at the Epic Games Store as it struggles to make a dent in the PC marketplace. The raw numbers, as reported in a "Proposed Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law" document Apple filed last week , show massive incurred and projected losses for Epic's game download hub, which launched in late 2018 . Documents and testimony from Epic itself show a $181 million loss for the store in 2019 and projected losses of $273 million in 2020 and $139 million in 2021. You might think Epic is incurring those losses because it only takes a 12 percent cut of third-party game revenues , compared to the industry-standard 30 percent cut on other digital storefronts. On the contrary, though—in its own court filings , Epic … [Read more...] about How long can Epic afford to throw money at the Epic Games Store?
