Growing up in a violent environment is likely to lead to accelerated aging and disease risk, new review of studies shows

McLaughlin’s lab is testing out ways that pediatricians can screen for signs of violence or deprivation during a routine doctor’s visit.

JBL/Under Armour True Wireless Flash X review: Still worth it

The Flash X have a Bionic Hearing feature that’s essentially an umbrella term for two similar features, TalkThru and Ambient Aware. According to these companies, TalkThru lowers music volumes and amplifies speech to make having a conversation with these earbuds in easier. From my experiences, this worked well and allowed me to exchange pleasantries with […]

‘The Hateful Eight’ Review: Quentin Tarantino Goes All-In With Hilarious & Violent Western Epic

Technically the film is superb and looks gorgeous with that widescreen cinematography from Robert Richardson that harkens to the best days of Western movies. Some may find the non-stop talk in the film’s first hour and a half a little tiresome, but Tarantino’s dance with words kept me riveted, and the performances are first-rate. Russell […]

Outlast PS4 review

Other opportunities are simply missed. For instance, many survival-horror games employ tricks that you expect, but only see once in a while.

Poulenc: A Biography by Roger Nichols; Poulenc: The Life in the Songs by Graham Johnson – review

Johnson writes with certainty, in his opening sentence: “Of Poulenc’s genius… there can now be little doubt.” Nichols waits until his conclusion: “In his best work Poulenc comes very close, at the least, to joining that small and illustrious band [of geniuses].” His slight hesitation is telling. It is very hard to catch Poulenc being […]

For the Nationalists, the candidate is a Mexican American boy, Steven Garza, with a talent for sincere rhetoric, but whose gun-control views are held against him.

Canyon Grail:ON review: Rule roads and turn heads

Fat tires? No problem Also helping take the edge off bumpy roads are the Grail:ONs tires. Up from 40mm on the Grail to 50mm for the Grail:ON, the Schwalbe G-One Bites are ginormous. When I pulled the Grail:ON from its box, my first thought was that these things were way too big. With a tread […]

Review: Lumen offers a variety of puzzles for iPhone

It should be noted that, if you tried the original Lumen but didn’t bother updating, or you have just never seen images of the first version, the new version is significantly better-looking. The second incarnation of the game has art by a somewhat well-known designer among the Macintosh community, Adam Betts. The new look gives […]
