Pompeii ruins unearth ‘master and slave’ remains

The grisly remains of a master and his slave in their final death throes have been discovered amid the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii.

The skeletal remains of what are believed to have been a rich man and his male slave attempting to escape death were found during excavations in the Civita Giuliana area.

Parts of the skulls and bones of the two men were found near a cryptoporticus, or covered gallery, of an ancient villa. Casts of the skeletons have been made, according to the Archaeological Park of Pompeii.


Pompeii officials said the men apparently escaped the initial fall of ash from Mount Vesuvius, then succumbed to a powerful volcanic blast that took place the next morning. The later blast “apparently invaded the area from many points, surrounding and burying the victims in ash,” Pompeii

DXRacer Master gaming chair review

You know a gaming chair is good when you can sit in one without getting sore for a week of 14-hour gaming sessions as you scramble to review Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. That’s what I’ve been doing with the new DXRacer Master gaming chair, which serendipitously arrived around the same time as Ubisoft’s sprawling (and very big) action RPG. 

In my previous chair, that kind of sit-down review marathon would’ve been disastrous for my poor ass—not to mention my knees, neck, and back—despite studiously taking the time to stretch and move around. But DXRacer’s latest chair is something special: It’s an extremely comfortable and luxurious gaming chair that can be easily customized with modular parts. Parts, such as a rotating bracket that can hold a laptop, for example.

Those modular components are a big part of the Master’s sales pitch. It’s a chair that’s meant to be tailor-made to your specific

What rights does a robot have? If our machines become intelligent in the science-fiction way, that’s likely to become a complicated question — and the humans who nurture those robots just might take their side.

Ted Chiang,  a science-fiction author of growing renown with long-lasting connections to Seattle’s tech community, doesn’t back away from such questions. They spark the thought experiments that generate award-winning novellas like “The Lifecycle of Software Objects,” and inspire Hollywood movies like “Arrival.”

Chiang’s soulful short stories have earned him kudos from the likes of The New Yorker, which has called him “one of the most influential science-fiction writers of his generation.” During this year’s pandemic-plagued summer, he joined the Museum of Pop Culture’s Science Fiction

The Camera app on iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro has been updated to take advantage of Apple’s newest features such as night mode portraits and Dolby Vision HDR recording. Here’s how to best take advantage of what the Camera app has to offer.

The cameras, and the Camera app, in the iPhone 12 range is replete with features — most of which Apple doesn’t tell you about. To keep it simple, and to make it so that the camera “just works,” Apple concentrates on having the most commonly-used functions be the first you find.

Beyond them, though, there are multiple features, and multiple ways of using them. Each is designed to make taking photos more convenient, more powerful — and much faster.

Cooler Master Ergo L gaming chair review

If you own a gaming chair you’re a member of the gaming elite—that’s what we’re told. It’s an image reinforced by an entire industry and it does indeed touch on something very important: if you’re going to be playing games for longer periods, you should think about your choice of throne.

I know it’s not the most romantic part of your PC build, and hardly as inviting as spending hundreds of dollars on a brand new graphics card, but investing in a gaming chair is just as important—not just for looking the part but also to protect your back from trouble down the line. Or perhaps help reverse years of neglect starting today.

We’ve seen a lot of movement in the ergonomic gaming chair market recently, with most major manufacturers now eyeing up new ergo-friendly designs. One such manufacturer is Cooler Master with the Ergo L, which I’ve been
