The life-or-death journey made by mule deer during the second-longest big game migration in North America came down to their ability to squeeze through a fence—a discovery made by scientists using wildlife GPS tracking techniques to map animal migrations in the West in unprecedented detail.

The resulting atlas of migration corridors in Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming published by the U.S. Geological Survey can help elk, mule deer, antelope and other animals by focusing efforts to reduce man-made obstacles along their journeys, biologists and wildlife advocates say.

“The new technology, the GPS collars and the computer programs that are able to analyze this data, is giving us such a different picture of what migrating wildlife do,” said Miles Moretti, president of the Salt Lake City-based Mule Deer Foundation, which funded some of the research. “This has given us some information like we’ve never had

What bowl game could the Miami Hurricanes end up in?

With the Miami Hurricanes ranked No. 10 in the initial College Football Playoff rankings that were revealed Tuesday night, No. 10 in the latest AP Poll and 9 in the Coaches Poll, a New Year’s Six bowl game appearance is possible.

There’s an outside shot that Miami (7-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) could still reach the College Football Playoff, but the only apparent path would be to win the next two games (at Wake Forest, vs. North Carolina), have Clemson or Notre Dame lose to vacate a spot in the ACC Championship Game and then win that conference title game on Dec. 19.

That seems unlikely as it would require either two Notre Dame losses or one more Clemson defeat, but if UM holds strong in the next two games and a regular-season finale against Georgia Tech (the alternative if Miami doesn’t reach the ACC Championship Game), the Hurricanes can

Game engines | the future of location-based entertainment

Game engines have become about far more than just gaming.  They’re a major accelerator of innovation and creativity across a diverse set of fields.

By Tim MadisonRaven Sun Creative

The same game technology underpinning the creation of games like Assassin’s Creed, Fornite, and Mario Kart also has the power to revolutionize location-based entertainment (LBE).

Within the world of LBE and experiential destinations, familiarity with game engines runs the gamut from expert to more or less nonexistent.  It’s probably safe to say, however, that more of us than not skew toward the latter end of the scale. Outside of the field of game design and development, game engines—what they are, how they work, and why they’re so important—are still not widely understood.

‘I Forget About the World:’ Afghan Youth Find Escape in a Video Game

KABUL, Afghanistan — Rifle fire, hurried footsteps and distant explosions. The rat-a-tat of a firefight. Cars mangled from grenades. The young man was transfixed.

It could have been any day in Kabul, where targeted assassinations, terrorist attacks and wanton violence have become routine, and the city often feels as if it is under siege. But for Safiullah Sharifi, his behind firmly planted on a dusty stoop in the Qala-e Fatullah neighborhood, the death and destruction unfurled on his phone, held landscape-style in his hands.

“On Friday I play from early morning to around 4 p.m.,” said Mr. Sharifi, 20, with a sly grin, as if he knew he was detailing the outline of an addiction to a passer-by. His left hand is tattooed with a skull in a jester’s hat, a grim image offset by his lanky and not-quite-old-enough demeanor. “Almost every night, it’s 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.”

Meanwhile, Virginia Tech was first on the board but had to settle for second at the end of their game against the Miami (FL) Hurricanes last week. Virginia Tech and Miami (FL) were almost perfectly matched up, but the Hokies suffered an agonizing 25-24 loss. RB Jalen Holston put forth a good effort for the losing side as he punched in two rushing touchdowns. Holston had some trouble finding his
