    Rakesh Sharma, Contributor
    18 Apr 2014 | 11:45 am
    For the last decade or so, the Playstation and XBox rivalry has riveted gaming enthusiasts. Together, both devices have powered sales in the gaming industry, accounting for more than sixty percent of the console games market that is worth an estimated $27 billion.

Based on figures released by the respective companies, the PS4 has sold more than seven million devices, so far. In comparison, XBox One has sold five million devices. Four Reasons Why Sony…

  • If This Keeps Up, Xbox One Has A Big PS4 Problem

    Yes, it's early. Too early for anyone to pop the champagne corks, declare victory and stand over the other guy with the scowl of a champion. But has a problem with the Xbox One in its war with the PS4 and it had better solve it soon or else it risks having a much smaller installed base, perhaps half the size by the holiday shopping season in 2014. As Paul Tassi wrote here in Forbes, announced the sale of the 7 millionth PS4, which it turns out occurred two weeks ago. That led Microsoft to respond with a report of its own claiming 5 million Xbox Ones shipped to retailers. The careful observer…
  • 12 Reasons Why New Zealand's Economic Bubble Will End In Disaster

    Jesse Colombo, Contributor
    17 Apr 2014 | 7:16 pm
    New Zealand's economy has been hailed as one of world's top safe-haven economies in recent years after it emerged from Global Financial Crisis relatively unscathed. Unfortunately, my research has found that many of today's so-called safe-havens (such as Singapore) are experiencing economic bubbles that are strikingly similar to those that led to the financial crisis in the first place.

  • Dads Get Way More Leisure Time Than Moms on Weekends

    We’ve known for a long time that mothers spend more time on childcare and housework than fathers in general, but on the weekends, mom and dad should get an equal amount of leisure time, right? Sadly—though perhaps unsurprisingly—for moms, that’s not how things usually go. New analysis of Pew research shows that the “leisure gap” between fathers and mothers only gets bigger on the weekends. Though fathers and mothers have about the same amount of leisure time on weekdays (3.3 and 3.2 hours, respectively), dads get an hour more leisure time than moms on Saturdays and…
  • Autopsy: Border Patrol Agent Shot Man Twice

    18 Apr 2014 | 2:38 pm
    (SAN DIEGO) — An autopsy report says a Mexican man who was killed by a Border Patrol agent near San Diego was shot twice in the chest after allegedly pelting the agent with rocks. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s report released Friday says two casings were recovered about 16 feet from the body of 41-year-old Jesus Flores. Investigators have said Flores struck the agent in the head with a rock and that the agent fired from below because he feared another blow could kill or incapacitate him. The Feb. 18 shooting came amid controversy over how the Border Patrol should respond to…

    A 7-year-old boy in Jefferson County, Alabama, was caught with a loaded gun at his elementary school Thursday. Authorities say the boy was showing the snub-nosed revolver to another student when a teacher saw the gun and took it away. The boy was suspended and will face a disciplinary hearing but is too young to face criminal charges, reports. “We don’t believe the 7-year-old had any ill intentions at all, just curiosity. In this case that could have been deadly,” sheriff’s deputy Randy Christian said. “Time and time again we have begged people to make sure…

  • Female ‘Penis’ Found on Brazilian Cave Insects

    18 Apr 2014 | 2:09 pm
    Scientists have discovered several species of insect in a cave in Brazil that display what they say are the world’s first discovered instances of female “penises.” The four species of insect, which live in dry Brazilian caves and feed on bat guano, display something scientists are calling an “evolutionary novelty”: full-on, anatomical sex-role reversal. Though rare, instances of sex-role reversal have been found in other animals before, but this is the first time the “intromittent organ,”—the male organ—is reversed, Reuters reports. During mating, the female receives sperm…

In fact, by looking at data from 72 separate studies involving some 600,000 participants, researchers from the University of Cambridge have now claimed that there is no evidence to suggest that switching from 'bad' saturated fats to the supposedly healthier mono or polyunsaturated variety will cut your risk of developing heart problems after all.
