Serena Williams confidently qualified for the fourth round of Roland Garros with a 6-4 6-4 loss to fellow American Danielle Collins on Friday as the draw opened seductively.

The 39-year-old seventh seed produced a calm and composed display against a dangerous opponent and is now the highest-ranked player in the bottom half. Williams, chasing a record 24th Grand Slam singles title, but for the first time since 2017, will face Kazakhstan’s 21st seed Elena Rybakina for a place in the quarter-finals.

A hard-hitting contest brought together 40 winners as Collins made it clear his best policy was to fight fire with fire on Philippe Chatrier court. It seemed to work when she took a 4-1 lead in the second set, but Williams’ response was emphatic as she cranked up the volume and power to return to victory.

“It was really good for me,” said Williams of his rushing arrival. “Things were not going my way. It’s not like she gave me those games. I had to win it and reverse it. It was really positive for me going into the next game.”

Collins signaled her intention with two clinical setback winners in the opener, but found herself struggling at 1-1, 0-40 before fighting to hold. Williams broke the serve at 3-3 when she showed great acceleration to chase a dropshot, then brisk reactions to deflect a volley from Collins’ pass attempt.

Collins showed the courage to save a set point at 3-5 and Williams then faltered on serve at 5-4 with consecutive double faults before recovering to seal the opener with an ace. When Williams broke early in the second set, it looked like she might get away with the contest, but Collins, 50th in the standings, found other gear to go four games in a row as the errors began to creep in. slip into Williams’ game.

Pulling back 1-4, Williams responded by cranking up the decibel level, berating herself even after gaining points, and suddenly she started firing at full blast again. “I needed to find myself, to know who I am. No one else is Serena here. It’s me. That’s pretty cool,” Serena said of how she took over the game. control of the match.

Collins, 27, started to look ragged and gave up service to love at 4-4 before Williams claimed the win to reach the last 16 in Paris for the 13th time. Despite his three titles at Roland Garros, clay is not always considered the best surface for Williams.

She clearly enjoys being back in Paris. “I love sliding. I love speed. I feel like I have a little more time for, like, just going to the balls, hitting them,” she said.

So far she’s hitting them pretty well and with people like Naomi Osaka, Ash Barty, Garbine Muguruza and Aryna Sabalenka all gone and Simona Halep having been ruled out for injury, her outlook is improving day by day.

How LifePack fights child malnutrition around the world by playing video games https://dhinc.org/how-lifepack-fights-child-malnutrition-around-the-world-by-playing-video-games/ https://dhinc.org/how-lifepack-fights-child-malnutrition-around-the-world-by-playing-video-games/#respond Fri, 04 Jun 2021 17:20:00 +0000 https://dhinc.org/how-lifepack-fights-child-malnutrition-around-the-world-by-playing-video-games/

The association is looking for publishing partners to help raise funds and raise awareness.

Hive, a social impact brain trust and organization for the defense of malnutrition The Eleanor Crook Foundation have teamed up to form LifePack, a nonprofit organization that fights child hunger by playing video games.

“[Child hunger] is a problem we can do something about ”, Hive Co-founder Erin Thornton told GameDaily. “It’s just that no one really realizes it. The other factor here is that so many people think they know about malnutrition, but they really don’t know it. We realized that we had to reintroduce the problem and focus on the fact that there is something that can be done.

LifePack is a two-pronged initiative to raise funds to provide Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food Packs (RUTF) to areas in great need and to raise awareness of global issues of child hunger. In 2019, William Moore, CEO of the Eleanor Crook Foundation, began discussing with Thornton ways to engage the general public in the fight against child malnutrition. Extensive research from Hive and TECF indicated that Millennials and Gen Z were the audiences most interested in the issue.

“It didn’t take us long to go from ‘this is the generation that we kind of want to engage in the solution’ to realizing that the video game industry is where we could approach them,” said Thornton. “It was a bit of a leap of faith, but we were like, ‘why can’t we invite the younger generations and players in general to really do good while doing what they love? “”

Thornton began to build a team to help build bridges in the games industry. Two of its members are Lisa Welch, currently a consultant at Hive and former vice president of consumer strategy at Activision, and Geoff Keighley, creator of Summer Game Fest. Keighley was not available for comment, although Thornton said he and Welch were actively involved in generating ideas and pitching LifePack to key industry figures and potential partners.

Tilting Point’s mobile game publisher SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off is the first partnership in the project designed to raise funds for RUTF packs via a special LifePack microtransaction added to the in-game store. Thornton said it was just a happy coincidence that the game was all about food and that LifePack plans to split into several genres including sports and fantasy.

Regardless of the genre, Thornton said that LifePack’s presence in it will always be authentic and tied to the game’s central concept, as something that either revives or nourishes the characters. LifePack has no additional partners to announce yet, but Thornton said she believes that may change soon.

“We had a really warm welcome [so far] and are in talks with other companies, ”Thornton said. “We hope to have more news in the coming year, but that’s the idea, that this can be something that the whole industry comes together around. These microtransactions are small, but when combined, this industry could have a very big impact on this problem. “

Moore said each RUTF costs around 23 cents, and it typically takes a week or two for a child receiving three packs of RUTF a day to bring them back from the brink of starvation. The Foundation is funding extensive research into how to make treatment even more profitable, although fundraising is only half of LifePack’s goal.

For a week after the project’s launch, the LifePack website hosts a simple web game called The LifePack. The goal is to escape the hunger, the villain, and get RUTF to stay alive. Although this is what Thornton called a “gross oversimplification” of the problem, the game is designed to raise awareness about child malnutrition, and LifePack is committed to giving a RUTF day every time someone else. ‘a load the game.

“The calculations are not strictly monetary,” Thornton said. “We focused on this industry because we knew we could touch a lot of eyeballs and hopefully inspire people to, if not by buying a micro-transaction, maybe later on, they will want to know more about this problem and get a little more involved. There are so many different ways to put this problem on the map of policy makers or donors. This is one of the reasons we go door to door and hope to have more games on board. “

Thornton said LifePack is open to all sizes of developers, whether independent or not, and across platforms, but the organization is also considering broadcasting events and other methods to make LifePack more flexible and desirable. for publishers.

Shaolin monks’ trends after co-creator asks about remakes https://dhinc.org/shaolin-monks-trends-after-co-creator-asks-about-remakes/ https://dhinc.org/shaolin-monks-trends-after-co-creator-asks-about-remakes/#respond Fri, 04 Jun 2021 16:27:00 +0000 https://dhinc.org/shaolin-monks-trends-after-co-creator-asks-about-remakes/

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks started trending on Twitter after series co-creator Ed Boon asked fans about potential old remasters of the game Mortal Kombat.

the years 2005 Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks started trending online after series co-creator Ed Boon asked fans for their remastering wishes. Boon teased Mortal combat a lot of fans lately, like last month, he may have teased a potential Marvel and DC crossover fighting game.

the Mortal combat the series has a dedicated fan base, in part because of the various twists and turns the franchise takes. From the iconic “Toasty!” Easter egg with intentionally exaggerated violence and surprisingly healthy friendship finishing moves, Mortal combat provides both humor and viscerally disgusting action while delivering a complex, lore-rich history. This story isn’t just told in the main line Mortal combat games, however, and some of the bigger twists can be found in spinoff titles like Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks.

Recently, Ed boon took to Twitter to post a poll with a caption that simply read: “Remaster…. ?“Available options included the 2004 Mortal Kombat: Deception, 2011 Mortal Kombat 9 restart, the original Mortal Kombat II from 1993, and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. One hour later, Windfall returned with a screenshot of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks trending on Twitter, and a caption reading: “W in real T F?

At the time of writing, a total of 129,121 votes have been cast, of which 47.3% went to Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (disclosure: this writer had to vote to see the results). Mortal Kombat 9 comes second with 27.8%, Mortal Kombat: Deception took third place with 14.1%, and Mortal Kombat II received the remaining 10.8%. Fans are apparently divided, with many begging a Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks remaster, and others don’t quite get the hype for the spin-off.

While all the other games on the list are closer to the typical game Mortal combat live, Mortal combat: Shaolin monksThe main attraction was its cooperative adventure mode, where players could team up with a friend and explore the Mortal combat world and fight their way through hordes of servants. The game’s story centers around Kung Lao and Liu Kang, but Scorpion and Sub-Zero are also unlockable for the game’s adventure mode. Plus, as an added bonus, Mortal Kombat II is playable in Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks via an in-game unlock.

Of course, the other games all have their pros too, and fans are nostalgic for them as well (see this Mortal Kombat 9 fan animation for proof) but for many, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks was their first introduction to the franchise and one of the few games to feature true adventure mode instead of just 1v1 combat. Ed Boon talked about making a Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks remaster before, so maybe this poll will give it the momentum to make that happen.

Luka Doncic scored or assisted on 31 of Dallas ’37 field goals in the Mavericks’ 105-100 win in Game 5.

Game 6: Clippers at Mavericks
9 p.m. ET, ESPN | Mavericks lead 3-2

• This Mavericks-Clippers Series is just the third NBA playoff series where the road team won the first five games (excluding the bubble playoffs last year when the teams played at a neutral venue). It happened for the first time in 1984 in a first round series between the Nets and the Sixers as the road team won every game of the five-game series. It last happened in 1995 in the final of the Western Conference between the Spurs and the Rockets. In this case, Houston broke through in Game 6 to win the series at home. Can the Mavericks follow the same scenario 26 years later and win the series in Dallas?

• After scoring just 19 points in the loss to Dallas in Game 4, Doncic responded by scoring 19 points in the first quarter of Game 5. He finished with 42 points, 14 assists and eight rebounds in 43 minutes. The only other player to have at least 42 points and 14 assists in a playoff game since 1984 has been LeBron James (May 3, 2018, Cleveland in Toronto). Doncic scored or assisted on 31 of 37 goals scored by Dallas (83.8%); it’s the highest percentage in an NBA game in league history – regular season or playoffs – according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

• Luka Doncic leads all playoff scorers to 35.0 points per game in the first round. He shoots 47.9% from the field and 42.9% from both 3 points and the free throw line. During the regular season, Doncic was a 73.0% free throw shooter but only made 15 of 35 attempts in that series.

• The Mavericks won it all three games that featured clutch time – score less than five points in the last five minutes of the fourth quarter or extra time. In nine minutes total, the Mavs edged the Clippers by 22 points. Dallas shot 7-16 (43.8%) from the field, 4-7 to 3 points (57.1%) and 9-9 from the foul line, while LA shot 2-11 (18.2 %) on the field, 0-6 from the 3 point range and 1-3 from the free throw line.

• The Clippers generated larger open plans – the closest defenseman at least six feet away – during that series (17.0 to 15.2 for the Mavericks). However, Dallas has a 10 percentage point advantage in effective field goal percentage on those open looks (67.1% vs. 57.1% for LA).

University athletes to monetize their Twitter videos via Opendorse

Through

Andrew Cohen


Twitter will allow college athletes to receive advertising revenue for branded videos posted on the social media app through a new partnership with the Opendorse content publishing platform. The new program precedes several states preparing to pass NIL legislation on July 1, which will allow NCAA athletes to legally monetize their name, image and likeness for the first time.

The new program, Opendorse offers, will allow brands to feature sponsored videos on Twitter, such as those focused on coaching tips or thanks from fans. An athlete can sign up for the program, then create a 45-60 second video on that topic and post it to their personal Twitter account. Pre-roll ads will appear on the video, with athletes receiving reduced ad revenue alongside Twitter and Opendorse. Income fluctuates based on the number of views of the clip.

“Student-athletes have been marginalized,” said David Herman, manager of sports partners at Twitter. Illustrated sports. “We want them to see the benefits of their NIL. They will be paid based on what their videos actually bring in.

The specific percentages of the revenue sharing model were not disclosed, but athletes are said to receive the majority of advertising revenue. Advertisers spent $ 808 million on Twitter in the third quarter of 2020. The NFL cornerback Prince Amukamara is an investor in Opendorse, which was founded by his former University of Nebraska teammates Adi Kunalic and Blake Lawrence.

Bruins remove page from Lamoriello book to win Game 3 against Islanders https://dhinc.org/bruins-remove-page-from-lamoriello-book-to-win-game-3-against-islanders/ https://dhinc.org/bruins-remove-page-from-lamoriello-book-to-win-game-3-against-islanders/#respond Fri, 04 Jun 2021 05:02:00 +0000 https://dhinc.org/bruins-remove-page-from-lamoriello-book-to-win-game-3-against-islanders/

The New York Islanders play like a Lou Lamoriello team. For much of Thursday, the Boston Bruins followed suit.

After all the hits, scoring chances, goals and general chaos in the first two games of the East Division Finals in Boston, the Bruins and Islanders each seemed to be channeling the old New Jersey Devils into Game 3. , who under New York general manager Lamoriello won three Stanley Cups by eliminating space and suffocating opponents.

And then the Bruins took over.

Third in the NHL this season in shots per game, the Bruins had just six shots on target in 30 minutes Thursday before dominating the second half of the game and taking a 2-1 lead in the series with a 2-1 win.

Bright to keep his team in the game, Islanders goaltender Semyon Varlamov appeared to lose his angle slightly at the near post as Brad Marchand scored over his shoulder from a sharp angle at 3:36 into overtime.

In the second half of regulation time, Boston dominated New York 33-11, but it was the Islanders who forced overtime when Mathew Barzal wedged a puck between the post and the skate of Bruin goaltender Tuukka Rask near the end of the third period.

“Did we expect him to come from there?” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said. “Only Brad can answer that question, but obviously you don’t, especially with all the (Varlamov) saves being tight. Maybe there was a little screen, maybe he was a little late to pick it up. I don’t care, to be honest with you. It went into the net, we won the match. You don’t ask how sometimes.

“We didn’t really steal it, in my opinion. I thought we played a really, really solid road game.

Marchand, who skated the puck down the left wing to give his teammates a change, said he probably didn’t expect his shot to beat Varlamov.

But “any shot, especially in overtime, has a chance to get in.”

A VICTORY AND A LOSS

Already absent from veteran defenseman Kevan Miller due to injury, the Bruins lost Brandon Carlo, one of the top four blue defenders, six minutes into the start of the third period when he hit his head against the glass on a hard but legal blow from islander Cal Clutterbuck.

Clearly pissed off, Carlo knelt down on the ice trying to regain his balance before skating with help. It’s hard to imagine him playing Game 4 on Saturday. If he’s out there will be even more blame on Charlie McAvoy, whose Thursday ice time of 29:11 was almost seven minutes longer than any teammate and nearly five minutes longer than n ‘ any registered Islander.

A head injury to Carlo is of particular concern, as the 24-year-old physique missed 11 games in March due to a concussion sustained on a high blow by Washington Capitals predator Tom Wilson, who was suspended for seven. matches for his headshot.

TROTZ MOVEMENT

Islanders coach Barry Trotz made an important move in an attempt to counter the line of Marchand superstars Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak, who combined five of the Bruins’ eight goals in the first two games of the series.

Trotz moved his third line, centered by Jean-Gabriel Pageau, against Bergeron’s unit after the Islanders used Brock Nelson’s line in a power-on-power clash in two games. For the most part, the tactical change worked as Bergeron, Marchand and Pastrnak were limited to seven even-matched shots in Game 3. Pageau, Travis Zajac and Kyle Palmieri were on the ice for the Islanders when Marchand scored in overtime, but there was nothing the forwards couldn’t do to save their keeper from himself on this game.

IS IT MAT BARZAL?

Goalless in the Islanders’ first eight playoff games and with just four assists for the season’s most important hockey, Barzal’s performance on Thursday could represent a breakthrough for the struggling offensive star.

Although he returned the puck to the Boston blue line before the Bruins’ opening goal, Barzal played with more confidence and candor, attempting six shots and ultimately scoring his first of the playoffs at 14:34 of the third period when he got three chances. to block a puck that bounced off him on the ground boards after poor communication between Rask and Boston defenseman Connor Clifton.

The Islanders have a great, deep team. But Barzal is the only New York player whose skills could allow him to make a difference on the scale of Pastrnak, Bergeron or Marchand.

RENTED ROOM

Taylor Hall was once again a key support player for the Bruins, failing back to steal the puck from Barzal in the first period, returning it to the ice and ultimately passing to Craig Smith on Boston’s opening goal.

A serial disappointment in the playoffs, Hall was traded to the Bruins by the Buffalo Sabers on the deadline for the reduced price of a second-round pick. The Islanders were also interested in renting Hall, but instead added New Jersey character forwards Zajac and Palmieri for a set of assets that included a first-round pick.

“He’s a special kid, a special player,” Smith said of Hall on Thursday. “He has exceptional speed and an exceptional spirit for the game. He was one of the best players there.

QUOTEBOOK

Cassidy: “I thought it was a great goalie game by their guy and our guy. And that’s why you get 1-1 in overtime. This is what we expect from the playoffs. I was asked that the other day; what surprised me a bit is the number of goals from two very good defensive teams. It’s more what I thought it would be.

High school student Megha Ganne showed remarkable composure as she compiled a four-under-67 67 at the US Women’s Open on Thursday to sit tied for the lead after the first round of the major.

The 17-year-old fan, who mixed six birdies with a pair of bogeys behind an exceptional putting, made her second tournament appearance and said she felt more comfortable this time around. “I think the first time is scary for everyone – meeting your idols and being on stage for the first time,” said Ganne, co-leader with England’s Mel Reid.

“But the second time around, even the practice laps, I wasn’t that nervous. I felt like I could come in here and just play my game instead of drenching everything. So I put that on. aside the first time “Definitely a little easier this time.”

Her first impression of the Olympic Club’s sprawling Lake Course, with its narrow fairways, ankle-high roughs and postage stamp-sized greens, bowled her over. “It was a little terrifying to see him for the first time, but I did a few laps and gained a little confidence,” she said.

“I didn’t panic when I got into the rough a few times because there are definitely holes I wasn’t keeping in the fairway, and it’s easy to panic out there, and I don’t. haven’t, ”added Ganne, who plans to attend Stanford University. “I think just knowing that everyone on the pitch has to deal with it, and whoever makes the smarter choices, picks the best lines and doesn’t take unnecessary risks will be the person who ends up better. “

Ganne will be released as part of the morning wave on Friday.
