Gaming News of the Day: Astronomers Study StarCraft Strategies

Earlier this week, Royal Observatory of Edinburgh research astronomers Dr. Thomas Targett and Dr. Duncan Forgan released an academic paper investigating which StarCraft II race has the most viable game strategies. The team observed 500 professional StarCraft II matches in order to gather their data, taking notes on when players made choices that would affect their long-term success or if they were playing to make the battle end swiftly. After running 100 simulations through the Monte Carlo method, they determined the members of the Terran Dominion had the best chance of permanently defeating the Zerg and Protoss races for control over the Milky Way. Disagree? Join in the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #StarcraftScience.

Hat tip to Wired.

HA suck it Zerg. And Toss. But really, who cares about toss.

unoxi:

Last night my boyfriend and I sat down to watch How I Met Your Mother like we do almost every night. We love how hilarious this show is, and I love how it portrays women as independent and not afraid to be “unlady-like.”

Unfortunately last night’s episode was quite a bit of a let-down. It was…

Currently watching this episode, pretty disappointed by it.

This fruit is an excellent supplement for the liver as well as contains vital minerals that assist in weight-loss and balancing body weight without compromising health. For people suffering from diabetes, a dry or fresh dragon fruit guarantees blood glucose control. 
  • Star Fruit
This fruit is an excellent source of ascorbic acid, which is important to the fitness of your body, as it assists in maintaining bones, teeth, mucus membranes, skin and improves the immune system. It also contains beta-carotene, which can be converted into vitamin A in your body for good vision and appetite.
  • Kiwano
This fruit is very rich in vitamin c and fibre. These help the red bloods cells, skin, muscles, nerves and heart. Vitamin E works in the body by helping to neutralize the damage from free radicals which can cause cancer and cardiovascular disease.
  • Mangosteen
This fruit has a very high concentration of xanthones that is one of the most powerful anti-oxidents in the world. The fruit also boosts the body’s immune systems and helps increase energy levels.
  • Sugar Apple

This fruit helps regulate the menstrual cycle, and contains a large amount of rosemary oil which can help fight off depression. This fruit also contains cineole which aids the body’s nervous system, helps in blood circulation, and improves concentration. This fruit as well aids in reducing the severity of asthma. 

  • Goji Berry
Goji berries are called the world’s most nutritional powerful anti-aging food. Goji berries are the highest rated antioxidant and have more vitamin C than oranges, more beta-carotene than carrots, more protein than whole wheat and more iron than steak.

Dragon fruit is amazing.
