CONCLUSION 1-Football-Morocco reaches the round of 16, Ghana hopes in peril at the Nations Cup https://dhinc.org/conclusion-1-football-morocco-reaches-the-round-of-16-ghana-hopes-in-peril-at-the-nations-cup/ Fri, 14 Jan 2022 22:31:36 +0000 https://dhinc.org/conclusion-1-football-morocco-reaches-the-round-of-16-ghana-hopes-in-peril-at-the-nations-cup/

Morocco have booked a place in the round of 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations while Gabon, Guinea and Senegal are also likely to qualify, but four-time champions Ghana are in danger of being eliminated soon after the four Friday matches at the tournament in Cameroon.

Morocco beat Comoros Islands nL1N2TU203 2-0 for a second win and top spot in Group C with six points, followed by Gabon with four after scoring a late equalizer to hold Ghana 1-1 nL1N2TU2PX in the second match in Yaounde. Jim Allevinah’s 88th-minute strike is almost certain to see Gabon through, if not as one of the top two in the group, but as one of the best four thirds in the six groups.

But Ghana are in one point danger and must beat Comoros in their final group game in Garoua on Tuesday to have any chance of advancing as they seek their first title in 40 years. The match ended in a disreputable punch after being littered with insignificant fouls with Ghana’s Benjamin Tetteh sent off for a savage punch thrown in the post-match fracas.

Gabon’s point was wildly celebrated by their side and made even sweeter by the refusal of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) before the game to let their captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang participate, even though he was training in the day before the shock after being released. of the COVID-19 quarantine. “According to the CAF Medical Committee, players Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Axel Meye and Mario Lemina, who have just come out of COVID isolation, cannot take part in this match. Medical examinations show heart damage and CAF did not want to take any risks,” the Gabonese Football Federation tweeted https://twitter.com/fegafoot_gabon/status/1482058220382429187?s=20.

GUEYE SUSPENDED Earlier in Bafoussam, Guinea and Senegal played out a nL1N2TU1HD 0-0 draw to stay neck and neck at the top of Group B with four points.

Senegal coach Aliou Cisse later said he had to remove midfielder Papa Gueye from the starting line-up on FIFA’s orders. “Pape Gueye had an administrative problem just before the match kicked off. Five minutes before, we were informed that FIFA had suspended him for a transfer between his club, Marseille, and Watford,” Cisse told reporters.

“His lawyer informed us this morning around 11 a.m., but just before the game we had confirmation. That’s why we took him off the team sheet.” Senegal were already without 10 players in the COVID-19 lockdown and their depleted resources resulted in a disappointing performance.

Frank Mhango scored twice as Malawi came from behind to beat Zimbabwe 2-1 nL1N2TU1ZP in the other Group B game and also lined up for a place in the last 16. On Saturday, Nigeria take on Sudan and Egypt take on Guinea Bissau in Group D in Garoua.

Ciryl Gane compares Francis Ngannou to the video game “Final Boss” https://dhinc.org/ciryl-gane-compares-francis-ngannou-to-the-video-game-final-boss/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 23:00:00 +0000 https://dhinc.org/ciryl-gane-compares-francis-ngannou-to-the-video-game-final-boss/

Ciryl Gane is looking to beat the UFC “game”.

Recently, we had a UFC champion in Charles Oliveira crowned after a long and hard-fought road in the UFC. Ciryl Gane is not like that. He only has seven fights in the UFC, but he made them all count.

Now he’s gearing up to fight for his first undisputed UFC title against a familiar foe, his former sparring partner and reigning heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. Gane is aware that this fight with Ngannou is the most important of his career, and the way he looks at it could win him the UFC “game” in some way.

“For me, yes, it’s (Ngannou’s fight) different from Derrick Lewis (at UFC 265), not because it’s Francis, but because he’s the champion, you see”, a explained Gane on The MMA Hour. “And the champion is a very big fighter, with a lot of strength. I like to say it’s the ‘final boss’ (like in my) video games [LAUGHS]. It looks a bit like that. So yes, this time, like always, if I make a mistake, it will be fine, if I make a mistake. If I lose, I’m really okay with that. Like every fight in my career, it’s been like that, but this time I want to take the last step, you see, that’s why it’s a little bit different.

If Gane is feeling any pressure heading into UFC 270, he’s hiding it well. He has already proven himself to be one of the best heavyweights in the sport as he now holds the interim belt. He and his trainer Fernand Lopez are very familiar with Ngannou and his fighting style. They all trained together for a while before Ngannou left. Lopez has spoken several times about how they know Ngannou’s tendencies and are ready for his fighting style.

Gane has yet to lose in his career. He burst onto the UFC scene just three years ago and has been turning heads ever since. If he can beat Ngannou and claim the heavyweight strap, it won’t be the end of this ‘game’. In fact, Gane might find himself in an “assassination row” of fighters waiting to try his hand at the new boss. Former champion Stipe Miocic and former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones await the champion backstage on January 23.

Who do you think will win and become the UFC’s ‘final boss’ at heavyweight on Jan. 22, Francis Ngannou or Ciryl Gane?

Leaked screenshots of Armored Core 6, Elden Ring creator involved https://dhinc.org/leaked-screenshots-of-armored-core-6-elden-ring-creator-involved/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 10:57:51 +0000 https://dhinc.org/leaked-screenshots-of-armored-core-6-elden-ring-creator-involved/ A set of screenshots leaked on Reset Era point to an unannounced Armored Core game. The description details a sci-fi world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki, who is also responsible for the Dark souls franchise and the next Ancient ring Game.

The information is courtesy of user Red Liquorice, who posted a synopsis and a series of watermarked screenshots of the game. It turns out that developer FromSoftware was handing out consumer surveys for the new installment, which also appeared to contain two 30-second clips of gameplay.

“I just completed a consumer survey on a new Armored Core game with a description, screenshots and two 30-second gameplay videos – the first a boss fight and the second more gameplay in the world, an area of ​​snow. ” he said.

Despite being a series based on mecha bots, Armored Core 6 appears to incorporate elements of politics, cult activity, and business. The plot revolves mainly around an unknown substance called Melange, which could significantly advance human society. Similar to the epic Dune (book / movie), the groups then fight for control of the substance.

According to the description, the game features a “massive three-dimensional map” and an array of challenging enemies with replay value. Mechas will be equipped with firearms, as well as melee combat weapons such as shields and blades. Upgrades are also included with options that oscillate between close-range and long-range combat styles.

The screenshots, themselves, have been heavily edited to remove watermarks with a unique identifier. “I also captured them, but they have an identity watermark, so they are tired of publishing them. The video was streamed and watermarked, so I couldn’t record it even if I wanted to, ”Red Liquorice said.

The images highlight some aspects of the dystopian world, armored vehicles, and boss fights that seem heavily inspired by like souls Games. Miyazaki’s involvement could also indicate a change in direction from the game’s standard shooter since Armored Core V, released in 2012. As to whether this is true, only time will tell.

A few months ago, FromSoftware had published a technical sheet containing details on console and Windows PC compatibility for Elden Ring, each offering different settings and overall performance. The game is slated for release on February 25 on current and next-gen consoles and Steam.

Top 5 Most Traded Metaverse Cryptocurrencies Today (January 12) – The VR Soldier https://dhinc.org/top-5-most-traded-metaverse-cryptocurrencies-today-january-12-the-vr-soldier/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 00:48:15 +0000 https://dhinc.org/top-5-most-traded-metaverse-cryptocurrencies-today-january-12-the-vr-soldier/

# 5 Enjin Coin (ENJ) – $ 243 million

Enjin is a blockchain for users to create custom NFTs and has established itself as one of the leading blockchains for Metaverse projects. Enjin has a popular mobile app with over 1.7 million installs.

Enjin’s latest business in the metaverse includes its Efinity blockchain, built from the ground up to provide an ecosystem for consumers and developers to exchange NFT items.

We’re starting to see some great apps developing on Enjin, including Age of Rust, with a first-person adventure game that allows users to collect in-game NFTs to solve puzzles.

Enjin is worth watching in 2022 as its platform and ecosystem continues to grow. In addition, the integration of Enijn into the Polkadot network only strengthens the long-term feeling of both projects.

You can buy ENJ on Binance, Coinbase, KuCoin, Kraken, etc.

# 4 Axie Infinity (AXS) – $ 323M

Axie Infinity is one of the most popular Metaverse crypto coins on the market. It features a game world filled with Axies, Pokemon-inspired creatures that users can collect and upgrade. The object of the game is to raise, collect and build kingdoms for their Axies and increase their wealth.

Various game modes are available, many of which pit players against each other using multiple strategies and tactics to reach the leaderboards. Additionally, players can complete quests, defeat bosses, and unlock detailed scenarios.

Axie Infinity was initially built on the Ethereum blockchain, but the team is developing a unique blockchain called Ronin that was developed specifically to accommodate the game’s high user base and transaction volume.

In the latest news, Axie Infinity announced plans to reduce the supply of one of its SLP tokens, which is among the largest numbers of Metaverse cryptocurrency holders.

As such, traders should not be surprised to see bullish momentum for the SLP token in the coming months.

There are reports of users earning a living wage just by playing Axie Infinity, and the project has some of the highest community support when it comes to crypto. Even with an insanely high valuation of $ 4.7 billion, AXS could easily see a further increase in value as the general public joins its metaverse.

Additionally, with the Axie Infinity team actively working to reduce the supply of SLP, it’s worth keeping an eye on the price of Smooth Love Potion in the months to come.

# 3 Décentraland (MANA) – $ 323 M

One of Decentraland’s most popular activities right now is playing poker in its virtual casino. Decentral Games has built a casino in the Decentraland metaverse, allowing users to win real money at certain free gaming tables.

Decentraland has some of the fastest growing ecosystems on the market, and while its graphics are somewhat outdated, it is king when it comes to utility and user base.

As Decentraland continues to develop its ecosystem, there is no shortage of contests and giveaways for new users. Today Parcel announced its giveaway for its Palace structure that users can use in Decentraland. To participate, be sure to check out the Tweet below:

As the leader in Metaverse crypto coins, Decentraland is my favorite because it has the most utility. Even though the graphics may be out of date, it wouldn’t be that difficult for Decentraland to release a graphics update in the future or for users to create graphics packs similar to how GTA and Minecraft fans did. HD graphics upgrades.

Decentralnad is still in its infancy, and even though its market cap is in the multibillion dollar range, MANA could easily 2X-3X in 2022.

You can buy MANA on Binance, Coinbase, KuCoin, FTX, etc.

# 2 The Sandbox (SAND) – $ 1.13 billion

The sandbox is one of the most anticipated projects of this year. After a successful alpha in December 2021, The Sandbox captured the attention of consumers. Additionally, there have been reports of retail investors betting on The Sandbox’s future, making it a great long-term catch for 2022 and beyond.

What makes The Sandbox unique is that it has much higher quality graphics than any of its competition. Plus, since users have to download a desktop client to play The Sandbox, the experience and immersion is much better than just the browser experience.

In the latest news, we saw Snoop Dogg announce the development of the Snoopverse in The Sandbox. Soon after, a collector named P-Ape purchased land in The Snoopverse for over $ 450,000.

In other news, The Sandbox is gearing up for another land sale on January 13, so if you missed your chance to buy land, it’s tomorrow.

The sandbox currently enjoys a valuation of $ 4.7 billion, making it the third largest Metaverse crypto coin on the market. The SAND ecosystem is still in its infancy, and while the current valuation appears high, once their metaverse opens to the public, the influx of users could quickly push SAND to a new all-time high.

You can buy SAND on Binance, KuCoin, Uniswap, FTX, Gemini, and more.

# 1 WEMIX (WEMIX) – $ 1.16 billion

Today, the most traded Metaverse crypto coin is WEMIX, a custom blockchain project made by South Korean gaming platform WEMADE. The WEMIX network offers various blockchain games to be won with one of the most robust platforms on the market.

PUBG player count almost doubles on Steam after free game launches https://dhinc.org/pubg-player-count-almost-doubles-on-steam-after-free-game-launches/ Wed, 12 Jan 2022 19:16:17 +0000 https://dhinc.org/pubg-player-count-almost-doubles-on-steam-after-free-game-launches/

the PUBG the number of players practically doubled overnight. The reason is simple: the PUBG The free version has proven to be extremely popular.

PUBG is undoubtedly one of the games that sparked the modern Battle Royale craze, but it hasn’t seen the same success as its contemporaries in recent years. Although it has sold over 70 million units, the original creator of the game, Brendan Green, left to start his own business and the PUBG player numbers have remained relatively stable over the past year (at least on Steam).

It was ready to change when PUBG announced that he was play free-to-play last month. That day has finally arrived, and it shows – the PUBG the number of players practically doubled overnight.

the PUBG player numbers have remained relatively stable over the past year until the recent launch of free-to-play. (Graphic credit: Steam Graphics)

the PUBG The number of players is increasing, but will it last?

Like Steam Graphics watch (via Reddit), the PUBG The number of players on Steam has risen from a high of 363,839 yesterday to a high of 667,399 players, an increase of 83.4% in a single day. The reason for this spike is surely due to the recent PUBG free version.

Interestingly, the developers hosted a free event in August 2021 that barely moved the needle on player count. It looks like the full free version has sparked a much higher level of curiosity among gamers – especially knowing that they won’t have to purchase the game after a free weekend ends. It should be noted, however, that the free version cannot access the ranked game; which requires a one-time purchase of $ 12.99.

The highest PUBG The number of players has also led to an increase in Steam reviews, of which around 3,000 are positive and 4,000 negative. Recent reviews before the release of free-to-play have been slightly more positive than not, so it seems there is some pessimism about the launch of free-to-play, both from gamers. previous players or new players who don’t quite find their cup of tea. .

The larger game population is certainly impressive, but the only big question is, can we PUBG maintain these numbers of players in the long term? Having nearly 700,000 players on Steam is impressive, but it’s paltry compared to the game’s all-time peak of 3,236,027 players in December 2017. Now it’s up to the developers to continue delivering a compelling experience. You can player PUBG free on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Google Stadia via its official website.

What do you think of the PUBG free version? Do you think this will lead to permanent growth in the number of players? Let us know in the comments below!

A police captain who arrived at the scene saw another patrol car parked nearby and wondered why the police had not responded and responded himself, according to court documents.

Officers claimed they did not hear the backup radio request, but on the patrol car’s tapes they were overheard discussing whether to respond and Lozano could be heard saying: “Ah, shit,” according to court documents.

The officers are then heard for the next 20 minutes discussing the GPS-based augmented reality cell phone game Pokémon and traveling to various locations to “capture” virtual creatures, according to the documents.

Court documents show that shortly after officers were asked to respond to the theft, Mitchell alerted Lozano that Snorlax “had just appeared.”

The court reported: “After Mitchell apparently caught the Snorlax – exclaiming, ‘I have them’ – the petitioners agreed to ‘take the Togetic’ and left.

“When their car stopped again, the [digital in-car video system] Mitchell recorded saying, ‘Don’t run away. Don’t run away, ”while Lozano described how he“ buried and ultra-balled ”the Togetic before announcing,“ I got it.

“Mitchell said he was'[s]until I try to catch it, ”adding,“ Holy shit, man. This thing is fighting against me. Finally, Mitchell exclaimed, ‘Holy Crap. Finally, “apparently in reference to the Togetic’s capture.”

The video also saw Mitchell say to his partner, “The […] guys are going to be so jealous. “

They were fired after a police rights board unanimously ruled that the two officers had “unprofessional and embarrassing” misconduct and violated public confidence.

The agents asked a court to overturn their dismissals, arguing among other things that the tapes of their private conversations had been abused as evidence but the judge of the Superior Court rejected their request. The Court of Appeal upheld this decision.

G Tigers https://dhinc.org/mobil-1-challenges-nba2k-players-to-polish-their-game-with-shanghai-gen-g-tigers/ Tue, 11 Jan 2022 14:21:51 +0000 https://dhinc.org/mobil-1-challenges-nba2k-players-to-polish-their-game-with-shanghai-gen-g-tigers/

It was late 2019 when CryptoBoxers, the very first boxing video game with a blockchain-based cryptocurrency ecosystem, announced a projected entry date into the gaming market. Then Covid struck, and the world was sent into an unexpected twelfth round. However, the cryptocurrency emerged from the pandemic, becoming a dominant force, and the CryptoBoxers followed suit, rising ahead of the arbitrator’s final ten-second countdown. Game creator and CEO of Me N Mines Media, Andrew Gilliam has victoriously announced that CryptoBoxers is now entering the fashion ring, with a new CryptoBoxers NFT clothing line, in anticipation of the game’s imminent release date with new features. developed.

CryptoBoxers have been busy planning, tracing and partnering with selected professional boxers to customize NFT packages to be released as the first in a series of sets that include NFT apparel. The first round series includes the former champions Michael spinks , Lamon brewster , Poison Junior Jones, Billy wright , Montell Griffin , Buster douglas and champion boxer Tracy Byrd . Current champions and contenders include Austin Trout, Alexandre franck , Carlos Takam, Helen Joseph, Yoselin Fernandez, Chevelle Hallback, Oxiandia Castillo, Yahu Blackwell, Evander Castillo, Jean Carlos Vargas, WBC heavyweight champion Danielle Perkins , and their first NFT referee, the legendary Tony weeks .

Using the latest technology, each boxer sends images to the CryptoBoxers team. The images are then transformed into singular, explosive, altered patterns and transposed onto hoodies, long sleeves and t-shirts. The boxer’s clothing is then tied to them as an opportunity for additional branding in the digital space while tapping into the crypto commodity market. The CryptoBoxers NFT clothing line is already expanding into other areas, while active professional boxers are currently wearing their model in the ring by wearing their NFT wardrobe gear for the fighter’s corner, press conferences and events. weighings. Merchandise is currently priced at 1000% discount for a time limited to https://crypto-boxers.myshopify.com/ with the official CryptoBoxers NFT platform expected to launch later this year.

Creating sources of income for athletes in difficulty has always been Andrew Gilliam’s plan when he first considered CryptoBoxers in 2018. A hip-hop historian with an online marketing background, Gilliam has over two decades of experience in his field. “With CryptoBoxers, any professional boxer can earn extra income regardless of whether they are active or not, whether or not they have social media. Our vision for the expanded NFT platform is expected to add millions to the sport of boxing by outside the ring while allowing fans to connect and feel the true presence of each boxer, ”notes Gilliam.

“We envision this part of what we can fully offer as a hybrid version of EA Sports. Instead of our company and our staff lining their pockets, we first partner with them, the athlete, then we monetize with them, to create and give them passive income that increases with minimal involvement. Our NFT clothing starts on round one. Beyond just playing, income is created with every opportunity offered by the digital world ” , says Gilliam.

CryptoBoxers is an element of diversification that will transform the boxing and gaming markets, eventually expanding and evolving beyond boxing to include all combat sports. CryptoBoxers aims to be the leading platform for uplifting the community of aspiring combat sports athletes and their fans, empowering people of color and disenfranchised groups. Using cutting-edge technology, innovative business models, and a more fair and engaging experience, CryptoBoxers’ championship belt disrupts the status quo and generates untapped market potential.

Cricket-Taylor final test seals New Zealand victory https://dhinc.org/cricket-taylor-final-test-seals-new-zealand-victory/ Tue, 11 Jan 2022 06:38:50 +0000 https://dhinc.org/cricket-taylor-final-test-seals-new-zealand-victory/

Ross Taylor won Bangladesh’s final wicket in his final act of testing cricket to seal New Zealand’s playoff victory by one set and 117 points in Tuesday’s second and final match.

New Zealand’s decision to call a call denied Taylor, who made 28 in his first reported 521-6 total, the chance to strike again. Bangladesh scored 126 in the opening innings and were 278-9 in the final session of Matchday 3 when New Zealand skipper Tom Latham threw the ball at Taylor.

The part-time spinner sent two point balls before inducing a skyer from Ebadot Hossain and Latham took a fall in the middle of the wicket to secure a winning farewell to the former New Zealand captain. The margin of victory could have been greater without Liton Das’ 102 counterattack for Bangladesh, which shocked the world champions https://www.reuters.com/article/cricket-test-nzl-bgd-idINL4N2TK3I2 opening match tests at Mount Maunganui.

“It’s a great way to end,” said Taylor, New Zealand’s most prolific test hitter with 7,683 runs, including 19 hundred, in 112 games with an average of 44.66. “I wanted to end with a win and the guys definitely gave it to me.

“It was an emotional game for me and my family… it was good to get the victory,” added the 37-year-old, who will play his last limited international matches against Australia and the Netherlands during summer at home. With their surprise eight-wicket loss in the opening test, New Zealand called for a follow-up before their seamers secured the victory.

“The bowlers did a hell of a good job on a tiring wicket,” said Latham. “Ross Taylor got up and took the last wicket. He’s been there 17 years… has been such an important member of the group.”

Latham, whose 252 earned him the man of the match title, managed a superb catch on the second slip to clear Mohammad Naim as Bangladesh began to crumble. Neil Wagner put the Tourists’ batsmen through a bouncer barrage and was awarded with numbers 3-77, while Kyle Jamieson claimed 4-82.

Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque (37) and Nurul Hasan (36) couldn’t convert their starts to big shots, but Liton scored freely to bring his second try out of a hundred to 106 balls. “I’m really happy with the first test, but the second test was disappointing,” said Mominul.

Devon Conway was named man of the series for smashing two hundred in three innings.
