Several games from the Pacific Northwest’s development community are among the major nominees at the 2020 Game Awards, an annual livestreamed ceremony that celebrates the highest achievements in the video games.

The Bellevue, Wash.-made samurai epic Ghost of Tsushima, made by Sucker Punch as an exclusive for the PlayStation 4, is one of the most celebrated games at the show. It grabbed nods for Game of the Year, Best Narrative, Best Art Direction, Best Audio Design, Best Action/Adventure Game, and Best Game Direction. Ghost’s lead actor Daisuke Taiji, who voiced and provided motion capture for Ghost’s protagonist Jin Sakai, was also nominated for Best Performance.

Ghost has the third most nominations of any game that’s up for an award at this year’s show, behind Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II and Supergiant’s Hades. In the last year of the eighth generation of video game

Community helps scientists evaluate smoke forecasts — ScienceDaily

During the smoky summer of 2018, two wildfires in Utah County burned a combined 121,000 acres, sending smoke pouring into the valleys of the Wasatch Front. Atmospheric scientists are always working to better forecast how smoke moves from fires, just as they work to forecast hurricanes and snowstorms.

But the fires in 2018 provided a unique opportunity for scientists. Across the Wasatch Front, both researchers and community members maintain enough air quality sensors to provide a high-resolution picture of how the smoke moved through the valley — perfect for testing and refining smoke forecast models.

“This forecast would be similar to how we would forecast rainy weather or clear conditions,” says Derek Mallia, research assistant professor in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, “except we can now do it for smoke.”

Mallia and his colleagues, including researchers from the Department of Chemical Engineering and School of Computing, published their results in

Infection prevalence among university students was lower than in the surrounding community, case study finds — ScienceDaily

An aggressive COVID-19 surveillance and testing effort at Duke University was highly effective in minimizing the spread of the disease among students on campus, according to a case study appearing in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

The successful Duke campaign was launched before the start of the semester. Ahead of arriving on campus, all enrolled students were required to self-quarantine for 14 days, sign a code of conduct pledge to obey mask-wearing and social distancing guidelines and have a COVID test.

Once classes started, the university conducted regular surveillance testing using pooled samples to conserve resources, daily symptom self-monitoring, contact tracing with quarantine, and regular testing for those who were symptomatic or had been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

The result: The average per-capita infection prevalence among students was lower than in the surrounding community, and large outbreaks seen on other campuses were avoided. Overall, combined testing

How The Crypto Community Got Divided Into Two Halves: CeFi Vs. DeFi

There are two halves of the financial system from a crypto enthusiast’s perspective — traditional finance and cryptocurrency finance. But the crypto space now has two subspaces — centralized finance (CeFi) and decentralized finance (DeFi). Here’s how the divide happened.

One of the original ideas behind cryptocurrency is to have a wholly peer-to-peer network that doesn’t need centralized intermediaries such as financial institutions. Events played out differently in reality, however.

First, there are two ways to own crypto. You either receive payments in crypto or exchange government-issued money, such as the dollar for it. Most people enter the market via fiat gateways, and that complicates things —

Community colleges boost internet capability through network

RIDGELAND, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi’s 15 community colleges are upgrading to a fiber-based broadband network that officials say will allow faster internet speeds and more collaboration with other institutions of higher learning and research in the state.

The Mississippi Optical Network (MissiON), run by C Spire, already serves the University of Mississippi, Mississippi State University, the Stennis Space Center and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers’ Engineering Research and Development Center, as well as a number of other major institutions.

The network allows members to access speeds up to 100 Gigabits per second (Gbps) and share virtual resources, C Spire CEO Hu Meena said.

“MissiON allows students, researchers and others from Jackson State to use the supercomputer at Mississippi State,” University of Southern Mississippi chief information officer David Sliman said during an online announcement Thursday. “Likewise, MissiON allows terabytes of oceanographic data generated by USM and Stennis Space Center to

Smell and taste changes provide early indication of COVID-19 community spread — ScienceDaily

Self-reports of smell and taste changes provide earlier markers of the spread of infection of SARS-CoV-2 than current governmental indicators, according to an international team of researchers. The researchers also observed a decline in self-reports of smell and taste changes as early as five days after lockdown enforcement, with faster declines reported in countries that adopted the most stringent lockdown measures.

“In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many governments have taken drastic measures to prevent their intensive care units from becoming overwhelmed with patients,” said John Hayes, professor of food science, Penn State. “Our research suggests that an increase in the incidence of sudden smell and taste change in the general population may indicate that COVID-19 is spreading. This knowledge could help decision-makers take important measures at the local level, either in catching new outbreaks sooner, or in guiding the relaxation of local lockdowns, given the strong impact of lockdown
