Hell Let Loose update adds Utah Beach and light tanks

The latest major update for Hell Let Loose has added a new D-Day map to the WW2 shooter. Now players can storm or defend Utah Beach, the site near France’s Cherbourg harbour that established a foothold on the Cotentin Peninsula during the Allies’ Normandy invasion in 1944. It’s a moody-feeling map, slightly overcast with a touch of pre-dawn fog still clinging to the fields above the beach. German barricades and obstacles litter the beach, while above are abandoned French farm cottages and outbuildings. The update also adds two light tanks: The Allies have the speedy American Stuart, while the Axis side gets the “Luchs” variant of the Panzerkampfwagen II. Both are meant as anti-infantry flanking vehicles. Another addition in the …

1 Mom’s Hilarious Note to Huggies Shows It Might Not Have Thought Its Toy Story 4 Design Through

Emilee Webber, a mom with a good sense of humor, recently pointed out a small issue with Huggies’ Pull-Ups that will have moms and dads rolling. In a now-viral Facebook post, she explained how putting Woody from Toy Story 4 on the front may not have been the wisest choice. She wrote: “Dear Huggies, I completely understand that your new addition of toy story designs are in conjunction with the release of Toy Story 4. It’s an excellent marketing ploy because, I mean seriously, what 2-3-year-old boy doesn’t love Toy Story? However, as a mom, I’ll say this, foresight would’ve been wonderful. I’m writing this as my 2-year-old is patting the front of his pants saying, ‘I love my Woody’ …

OMG, This Hatching Toothless Is Just Like a Hatchimal, but How to Train Your Dragon-Style

Hatchimals have a new cousin, so to speak. Announced at 2019’s Toy Fair, Spin Master shared that they’ll be releasing a How to Train Your Dragon Hatching Toothless ($60), which hatches just like the Hatchimals your kids have grown to love, but with a bit of dragon flair. Rather than rub and cuddle the egg to coax it to hatch, Toothless’s egg needs to be aggravated. Once bothered enough, Toothless, with his light-up mouth and pumping wings, will come alive inside his egg, hatch, and be ready to play. Kids ages 5 and up can play games with him like “Ask Toothless,” Hot Potato, and “Toothless Says,” and he can be taught how to dive-bomb and plasma blast, just like …

Lots of French press discussion lately.

In light of this, I would like to start a brief discussion. Those of you that use a French press regularly, why? Do you prefer the body or is it a taste preference? Do you feel like the oils drown out the coffee notes at all? Those of you that don’t use a French press, why not? Is it the less oils of a paper filter? Taste difference? Why do you prefer not using a French press? This sort of stems from my own experimentation. I love both v60 and Hoffman method French press. I legitimately can not decide which I prefer. They’re just, different. Been quite the dilemma lately as I have been trying to decide on my “favorite” …

The U.S. Government Has Found a Devious Way to Hire More Bureaucrats

These salaries are underwritten by the $235 billion the federal government lays out to nonprofits each year. To constrain the growth of central government, conservatives have fought to keep down the number of federal bureaucrats.This strategy has failed.Since the 1960s, the number of federal employees has remained constant at about 2 million, yet federal power has greatly expanded.This phenomenon arises because Washington has outsourced many civil service functions to contractors, nonprofit groups, and lower levels of government.According to New York University professor Paul Light, the true size of the federal government’s “blended workforce” is now somewhere between 7 million and 9 million people.The biggest portion of the blended federal workforce consists of federal contractors. Today, there are about 3.7 million …

Head in the clouds on the Isle of Man

Perched on one of the highest peaks on the island this amazing eco-home is a birder’s paradise In 2012, Peter and Carole Lillywhite visited the Isle of Man for the first time. Three days into their visit, they had an offer accepted on a small, 19th-century cottage on Sartfell in the west of the island.

For Apollo 11’s moon landing anniversary, the Washington Monument was made to look like a rocket

WASHINGTON — The Washington Monument just got even more iconic. On Tuesday, the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch, the 555-foot national symbol lit up with an image of the moon-bound shuttle blasting into space.
