Adam Savage Built a 1,000-Shot Nerf Gun | Nerdist

By his own admission, Adam Savage is a huge Nerf fan and an admirer of the Nerf Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K, a high capacity Nerf gun that can shoot up to 100 high-impact rounds in a row. However, Savage's latest one-day build for Tested attempted to improve upon the Rival by greatly increasing the capacity to 1,000 shots. But first, Savage took the time to appreciate the firing mechanism that makes the Rival work.  The first task at hand was to determine the size of the magazine to hold the 1,000 shots, and Savage's initial estimate was slightly off. Midway through the process, Savage expected to use a dual magazine design. However, Savage ultimately chose to go with a single curved magazine for aesthetic purposes. After Savage had a working model, he went back and made visual improvements on his Nerf gun. While working on this project, Savage also reminisced about his days at ILM when he and other effects artists kitbashed models to create spaceships. (Savage brought it up because he

Belmont Stakes live stream: How to watch Justify go for the Triple Crown without a TV

This year’s Belmont Stakes has turned into one of the most anticipated horse racing events in decades, as racehorse Justify tries to take the Triple Crown. If he pulls it off, he’ll become the 13th thoroughbred in history to do so and only the second since 1978 when American Pharoah took the title in 2015. The colt is currently undefeated, having taken the roses at the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, but he drew a tough post spot and will be forced to run right next to the rail, which could make his job even harder. In short, it has all the makings of a great horse movie. So, even if you aren’t typically a horse racing fan, you might want to tune in to see if history is made.

It's the second year in a row E3 is open to the public (before then, only industry insiders and press could attend). And while having so many fans in the Los Angeles Convention Center means there will probably be plenty of long lines to play new game demos -- and lots of people dressing up as their favorite game characters -- that's far from the main event.

Teaching Two Programming Languages in the First CS Course

My answer to my colleague is that we don’t know enough about what happens to student learning when they switch programming languages. Transfer is hard to make happen, but it happens more often and more easily when students learn the first programming language well. There is likely a cost to student development when students switch to a new language. Teaching the conceptual material, and not the language, doesn’t help if you want students to actually learn to program. At some point, they have to learn the language.

So we ruthlessly focus on delivering that and then also solving all the problems around that."

At any rate, you'll be able to play the game on August 7th, including a "Hall of Fame Edition" with some of the all-time great players.

4 simple exercises to strengthen your attention and reduce distractibility

Open monitoring helps you learn to pay attention to what’s happening around you without becoming attached to it. This practice is not about paying attention to a particular object or objects. Instead, it’s about remaining open to any experience — internal or external — that arises, and allowing it to wash over you. “You don’t process it, you don’t think about it,” Jha says. “You just notice its occurrence and allow it to dissipate.” To do this, sit in a comfortable, upright position and try to be aware of any sensations, thoughts or emotions that emerge, without holding on to them. It might help you to label what comes up by using words like “planning,” “worrying,” “judging,” “remembering.” You can do this silently or out loud. After you name it, let it go. Think of what you’re doing as like watching clouds move in the sky and observing the different shapes they make — but in this practice, you’re watching your thoughts travel through your mind. And yes, there will be times when you feel like you keep getting hooked on a particular thought or sensation and can’t seem to drop it.
