Recently, a group of forward-looking thinkers compiled a list of catastrophes that could kill off 10 per cent or more of the human population within five years.The UK-based Global Priorities Project released its report back in April, and it defined global catastrophic risks as events or processes that would lead to the deaths of approximately a tenth of the world s population, or have a comparable impact.So a catastrophe like this wouldn t necessarily result in total human extinction, but it would make a pretty serious dent in world population.The report also includes low-probability—but high impact—events, like asteroid impacts and supervolcanic eruptions.The authors conclude their report by proposing a number of solution, ranging from the proliferation of medicines through to internationally binding treaties.It s a grim assessment, but at least it ll allow us to prepare for such eventualities—even if they re extremely unlikely to happen.
Recently, a group of forward-looking thinkers compiled a list of catastrophes that could kill off 10 percent or more of the human population within five years.This Gizmodo video explains how it could actually happen.The UK-based Global Priorities Project released its report back in April, and it defined global catastrophic risks as events or processes that would lead to the deaths of approximately a tenth of the world s population, or have a comparable impact.So a catastrophe like this wouldn t necessarily result in total human extinction, but it would make a pretty serious dent in world population.The report also includes low-probability—but high impact—events, like asteroid impacts and supervolcanic eruptions.The authors conclude their report by proposing a number of solution, ranging from the proliferation of medicines through to internationally binding treaties.
While the worldwide board-gaming community has plenty of awards ceremonies, arguably the most important is still the "Spiel des Jahres" Game of the Year award issued by Germany's game critics.Spiel des JahresEnlargeCodenames by Vlaada Chvátil: One of our top picks of 2015, Codenames comes from red-hot Czech designer Chvátil and features clever-but-accessible wordplay for parties of almost any size.The trick is to guess the right words—knowing full well that the more words you aim at, the more tenuous the link between the codenames and your clue will invariably become.Terrific party game with huge buzz, and probably the favorite to win the award.Unlike traditional Pandemic, the "Legacy" version offers an evolving 12-month storyline in which your team's performance one month carries consequences forward into next month's round of bad news.Using gorgeous sets of cards as locations, maps, power-ups, and more, each module offers new rules, new enemies, and new puzzles for your time-traveling team of up to four players.
Seemingly not content with The Division's online dominance and record-breaking sales figures, the French publisher's 'Motion Pictures' wing is currently in search of a writer to adapt the dystopian shooter for the silver screen.The report, based on Variety sources, notes that Ubisoft has yet to approach distributors with its big-screen plans for The Division and will possibly hold off until another actor is cast.The PS4, Xbox One and PC title depicts the aftermath of a viral pandemic in the guerrilla-war-torn streets of Manhattan.As a sleeper agent within the titular 'Division', the player joins an emergency task force designed to nullify rioters and gangs while investigating the origin of the outbreak.In reality though, it's mainly about shooting people in the face and hoarding rare loot for online supremacy, especially in the don't-trust-anyone 'Dark Zone' where players can 'go rogue' for spoils at the expense of their would-be teammates.Should The Division movie come to fruition it would mark another landmark in Ubisoft's ongoing film production schedule, with the mega-budget, Michael Fassbender-starring Assassin's Creed adaptation set to hit theatres in November and a Splinter Cell movie also in pre-production with Tom Hardy attached in a lead role.
Ubisoft s post-apocalyptic multiplayer adventure game Tom Clancy s The Division is already a blockbuster success in the gaming world, and now the upcoming movie based on the game has found itself a high-profile producer and star.Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal has reportedly agreed to produce and star in a movie based on the hit game, which was released in March 2016 and went on to break the record for first-week sales of a new game franchise with a $330 million global haul.There s currently no writer attached to the adaptation and no timetable for it go into production, but Gyllenhaal s involvement will likely give the project quite a bit of momentum in this early stage of development.Assassin s Creed hits theaters later this year with Michael Fassbender in the lead role, and Tom Hardy will star in the upcoming Splinter Cell movie based on the game franchise of the same name.Launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC earlier this year, The Division is set in the aftermath of a deadly pandemic that has turned New York City into an urban wasteland, with many of the city s basic services failing and access to food and water dwindling.Players take the role of a special agent in the fictional Strategic Homeland Division of the title, and are tasked with assisting in efforts to restore city services, deal with criminal elements, and investigate the source of the epidemic.
The mass plague grave site in Ellwangen, Germany, which was dated to between 1486 and 1627.In the following four centuries, plague outbreaks continued to flare up in pockets across the continent.Based on radiocarbon dating of the teeth and bone fragments, the Spanish remains are likely the oldest, with a date range of 1300 to 1420.From there, the researchers did full genome sequences of three Y. pestis isolates, one from each location.Then, the researchers fit the genomes into a bacterial family tree, which included 148 previously sequenced genomes of ancient and modern isolates.But the key finding, the authors wrote, came from the Russian strain, which was found to be a close relative of the Black Death strain as well as a relative to modern strains that link to the Chinese pandemic—the missing link between old and new.
Take Sony Bend, for example.The company s forthcoming title, Days Gone, almost looks like a spiritual successor to the former — only it revolves around a grizzled biker who s holed up in the scarred deserts of the Pacific Northwest opposed to the mean streets of Pittsburgh and Boston.According to a recent post on the PlayStation Blog, the title takes place two years after a global pandemic has wiped out nearly everyone, leaving the story s protagonist to fend for himself amid a onslaught of mindless, zombified creatures known as Freakers.The recently showcased demo features both the aforementioned Freakers and a collective monstrosity known as a Horde, which is made of hundreds of Freakers who prefer to eat, move, and attack like a single unit hell-bent on eating you alive.The developers have clearly taken their home in the Northwest to heart, and as such, the gameplay footage showcases a lush setting that s heavily rooted in the trees, mountains, and rural vastness that surrounds Oregon, Washington, and other parts of the West.Sony also plans to showcase other aspects of the game s sandbox mechanics — including crafting, traps, and the game s alternative paths — during an extended gameplay demo at this year s E3, but for now, you ll just have to settle for 10 minutes of bullet-laden gameplay and a sweet-ass embroidered jacket that looks like it was culled directly from Sons of Anarchy.
Days Gone, the PS4-exclusive open-world action game from Sony s Bend Studio, seeks to raise the stakes of the zombie-survival genre with faster, smarter monsters, and systems that encourage players to find creative solutions for escaping them.The trailer for the game alludes to the fact that St. John may have lost a wife or girlfriend in the turmoil, leaving him to roam the infested land alone.Based on what s been shown so far it could be the most intense apocalyptic survival thriller yet.It would be easy to simply hear that pitch and make a snap judgement, but that wouldn t do the game justice, even the small bit of it that s been shown so far I do like the concept .It turns out that St. John s mechanical handiness will help him plunder cars for a variety of parts, which he ll be able to turn into many kinds of equipment, such as an air bag bomb.St. John s bike is his primary mode of transportation and serves as an extended inventory.

The question is, how far are you willing to go?Vampires.While exploring you ll encounter a secret society of vampire hunters, who will hunt and attack the player, and a mutant strain of vampires known as skulls, who have somehow been transmogrified by the influenza epidemic coursing through the city.From here, Reid explores a rundown area of the city, the alleyways cramped with destitute, coughing bodies, the buildings collapsing in on themselves.They all have relationships, personal issues and sometimes secrets to find.Photograph: Dontnod EntertainmentThere are elements of Dishonored here, both in the dour urban setting, and the emphasis on contagion and social unrest, but Vampyr feels like something slightly offbeat, like Dontnod s other tiles.

Virtually anyone will be able to create their own pandemicEarlier this year, Oxford s Global Priorities Project compiled a list of catastrophes that could kill off 10 percent or more of the human population.Illustrated version of Steven King s The Stand Image: Marvel Comics Many of the technologies for this prospect are starting to appear, including the CRISPR/cas9 gene-editing system and 3D-bioprinters.A decade ago, futurist Ray Kurzweil and technologist Bill Joy scolded the US Department of Health for publishing the full genome of the 1918 influenza virus, calling it extremely foolish.More recently, a number of scientists spoke out when Nature decided to publish a so-called gain of function study explaining how the bird flu could be mutated into something even deadlier.

In November of 2014, a highly pathogenic strain of bird flu from Eurasia called H5N2 landed in North America—in a Canadian turkey farm east of Vancouver, to be exact.From there, the virus quickly spread and mutated into new varieties, including H5N1, fanning fears it would vault to humans and cause a deadly pandemic.By March of 2015, it and its kin had swooped into 15 US states, causing 248 outbreaks in domestic birds and $5 billion worth of damages to poultry operations.It s very good news, Robert Webster, prominent influenza expert at St. Jude Children s Research Hospital, told Ars.Its enigmatic exit may mean that coordinated efforts to defeat the viral spread worked, Webster speculated with optimism.And, in a controversial twist, it may mean that bird vaccines, which aren't used in the US, are boosting potential pandemic flu viruses in other places of the world.
