Driveclub for Playstation 4
Driveclub is being developed by Evolution Studios, the same team that handled the Motorstorm franchise. It’s not set to be a simulation game like Forza or Gran Turismo. It’s going to be an action racing game, similar to Grid 2 or the Burnout. Although not much is being revealed, The Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG will make its digital debut in the game. Without doubt, it’s certainly gorgeous enough to make you want to buy your own. Though the game was originally supposed to launch alongside the Playstation 4, Driveclub has now been rumored to be launching in June 2014.
Forza Motorsport 5 for Xbox One
Currently the only simulation racing game for the Xbox One, Forza Motorsport 5 launched alongside the Xbox One. It launched with a paltry 200 cars from 50 different manufacturers and allows you to upgrade your vehicles. Most importantly, however, is that the game looks unbelievable, and it runs extremely smooth. There are several modes, with more being added through updates,the latest being the addition of a drag racing mode
Need for Speed: Rivals for Playstation 4 and Xbox One
The latest in the annual Need for Speed franchise is one of, if not the best offering thus far. This version was developed by Ghost Games, a new company under the EA umbrella, along with Criterion Games. It launched alongside the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.In Need for Speed: Rivals, you’ve got two separate career paths: racer and cop. If you choose the racer, you’ll launch into a story about outrunning the cops, and if you’re a cop, you’ll be chasing down the racers. As you race, you’ll earn various upgrades, including spike strips. This game also features All Drive mode, which blends single player and multiplayer modes together. There’s no waiting or loading—you and your friends are there, ready to dominate.
The Crew for Xbox One and Playstation 4
The Crew is, perhaps, the most ambitious next generation racing title yet. For this game, developed by Ivory Tower and published by Ubisoft, you’ll be able to strip cars down to its bare parts and customize it to your liking. Customizing your car is nothing new, but the extent that you’ll be to do it to in this game is nothing short of impressive. The developers have created their own version of the United States, and you’ll be able to drive all the way from Los Angeles to New York, down to Miami, then up to Chicago. It will take you around two hours in real time to make the journey from coast to coast. As you travel, you’ll earn money, upgrades, and XP. This game is unique in every way, and will hopefully change the landscape of all racing games when it launches in 2014.
Project: Cars for Xbox One and Playstation 4
Little to nothing is known about Project: Cars. It’s currently in development by Slightly Mad Studios, the team that handled Need for Speed: Shift, Shift 2, and Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends. This game is entirely funded by the developers and the community and doesn’t even have a publisher. As of right now, the game will feature 60 cars and 35 race tracks. The tracks all have a day and night cycle, as well as completely dynamic weather.If you’re a fan of racing games, you should definitely keep this game on your radar.
Keep an eye out for more information on these games, and possibly some new ones, when E3 rolls around in June.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans injured a knee in training and his bout at UFC 170 against unbeaten Daniel Cormier scheduled for Feb. 22 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas has been canceled. The fight between Rory MacDonald and Demain Maia is expected to move into the slot as the co-main event behind the women’s bantamweight title fight between Ronda Rousey and challenger Sara McMann. Although details of his injury has not been released, it is said that doctors told Evans that he needs four weeks of rehabilitation. He said UFC officials are looking at potentially adding the fight to UFC 172 on April 26 in Baltimore.
Cormier was devastated to learn of Rashad Evans’ injury. He has fought his mixed martial arts career as a heavyweight, weighing in the 240-pound vicinity. But because his friend and training partner, Cain Velasquez, is UFC heavyweight champion, he opted to drop to light heavyweight for the fight. He’d been methodically cutting weight and had been tweeting pictures of a much slimmed down version of himself. “This is just so devastating,” Cormier said. “It’s so close and I’ve worked so hard. My family has sacrificed so much. I have hardly seen my girlfriend and my kids the last eight or nine weeks. I was trying to do this right. This is very hard for me. I didn’t make the weight at the Olympics and it cost me a chance to wrestle for an Olympic gold medal. Hard news to swallow for both fighters as well as countless UFC fans!

A deal has been agreed for the 27-year-old Amir Khan to fight ‘Money’ Mayweather in a mega-bucks bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 3. The fight is set to be confirmed around the time of next weekend’s Super Bowl in New York. Mayweather, 36, holds the WBC’s light-middleweight and welterweight titles, with the fight most likely to take place in the heavier division. Another factor that will not make the challenge any easier for Khan is the fact he will not have fought for 13 months by the time he steps into the ring.Talk of a clash with Khan has intensified in the past six months, as he’s been on Mayweather’s radar for quite some time. Khan revealed how a meeting with Mayweather’s uncle, Roger,back in 09’ convinced him he would be a difficult opponent for the brash Michigan-born superstar.
Khan said: “I met his uncle when I visited his gym and he told me that I had the style which would cause Floyd a lot of problems.“That was from his uncle’s own mouth.“I think Floyd knows as well that I have the style which would cause him problems.“They have been watching me for a long time and when I visited Floyd’s gym that time they knew all about me, even though I hadn’t won a world title yet.”Khan has lost two of his last four fights, per Boxrec, and will need to improve massively if he’s to challenge Mayweather. The Englishman’s defence has appeared easily penetrable at times and his shot selection sloppy—two aspects his potential opponent will be sure to exploit.Few will fancy Khan against the greatest fighter on the planet, but like so many others before him, dreams of overcoming Mayweather could be enough to fuel a memorable encounter.
In 1988, the Jamaican bobsled team stunned the world by qualifying for the Olympics, relying on the kindness of world athletes for essential tools they lacked — like a bobsled. The 1993 movie “Cool Runnings” was based on their journey. When the Jamaican two-man sled team qualified for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, they turned to the online community for funds to cover their trip to Russia.Team Jamaica tweeted on Saturday morning: #BREAKING: Jamaica’s 2 man Bobsled qualified for Winter Olympics in Sochi. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! #JamaicaBobsled.It was retweeted nearly 9,000 times and favorited more than 2,600 times.
Watt, who had retired after competing in the 2002 Games, returned to the sport this season at age 46 and trimmed the team from four members to two to cut costs. “It would mean the world to us, and I hope that our fans and friends back home in Jamaica would be proud and support us as we show the world that we don’t give up and that Jamaica’s bobsled is still alive,” Watt told the Jamaica Gleaner. ”This means so much. … I didn’t want to see Jamaican bobsled just die like that after all the sacrifices.” Fortunately, the team did not have to bow out as the community came through as the ever laid-back Jamaican would say ”no problem”.
For a country with no snow — ever — Jamaica has done pretty darn well in bobsled competition internationally. After its Olympic debut in 1988, the team returned to the Games in 1992, 1994, 1998 and 2002.The original Jamaican team that competed in Calgary was backed by a couple of U.S. businessmen and the president of the Jamaica Olympic Assn.
Over the weekend, the team not only raised their funds but in the process also quadrupled the price of dogecoins with donations also coming in from Indiegogo and Crowdtilt. The team officially stopped taking donations through the croudfunding sites at midnight on Jan. 20. “I am happy to report that because of your generosity, we have reached our target much sooner than we anticipated.” Harris notes that any additional support can be donated on the official bobsled site, www.jamaicabobsleighteam.com. “We are grateful for your overwhelming show of support. The monies you donated will be used to cover training expenses (food, board, traveling, track fees, etc.), and equipment purchases as the team completes its final preparation for the Games. Funds will also be earmarked to ship the sled and related equipment to Russia,” Harris said. Based on the huge fundraising response, it’s easy to see that this isn’t just Jamaica’s team. It’s the international community of the Internet’s team. Fans can follow the team’s video diary.
Fitness moves that are a waste of time tend to not look like anything we’d ever do in real life. Some weight machines are designed for isolating muscles for rehabilitation, especially for folks who aren’t strong enough to do a similar move while standing, But, the most efficient and functional moves use multiple muscles and look like stuff we do every day.
The moves below are not the best choices for most of us who want to burn fat, tone muscle, or look great for the summer with not a lot of time in our day to sacrifice.
Here’s a few work-outs you can ditch in 2014:
They’re overrated and useless because we have four sets of abdominal muscles and crunches only work only one set, and not through full range of motion. You’ll need to do tens of thousands of them to even begin to burn some of the fat that covers them. A more effective ab exercise would be planks. Do a couple of sets each day and you’ll see a difference in no time.
In addition to looking and feeling like you’re at the OB/GYN’s office, the thigh abduction machine really serves no purpose and isolate little muscles to save time, work big and small leg muscles together by doing “walking lunges” which will help build better bones and allow your stabilizers to do what they do in concert with your heavy-hitting quads and hamstrings.
Walking With Hand Weights
Stop it. You may get negligible caloric burn gains, but you risk jacking up your gait, your shoulders and your back. Simply walk faster, farther or use the stairs. Wearing a weight vest or a backpack is a safer bet as carrying weight closer to your center of gravity is safter(unless you suffer from back problems)
Stretching isn’t a warm up. Stretching before exercise has been the standard for years, but better research shows that stretching a cold muscle can be ineffective, at best, and dangerous at worst. Stretchers’ muscles can get too slack and be weaker than unstretched muscles and although they may feel good, may exacerbate the microtears in muscles. Do this instead : Warm up your muscles by doing a slow walk or jog which is better than static stretches. Save your stretches for after your workout and it will improve circulation to help the muscles repair themselves.
If you thought Kegal excercises were just for women, think again! According to experts, Kegel exercises can help strengthen the pubococcygeal muscle and other muscles of the pelvic diaphragm in men. The exercises are one of the most effective ways of controlling urinary and sexual incontinence naturally.
The first step in doing Kegel is locating your PC muscle. The PC muscle located from the pubic bone to the tail bone forms the floor of the pelvic cavity(that muscle you feel stopping the urine is the PC muscle)The basic exercise, which is squeezing your PC muscles as hard as you can, can be done anytime and anywhere. Do this for as long as you can before you feel your muscles getting tired. Eventually, with enough practice, you will be able to extend your play!
Hard to believe but it’s been 1 year since Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast on October 29th,2012, causing over $50billion in damage including the deaths of over 117 people. With the State of New Jersey suffering some of the most severe damage and still working to recover from the storm…the Rutgers University football team will wear a special helmet this week with the block R over black outline of the state of New Jersey to support Sandy relief, Rutgers head coach of the Scarlet Knights Kyle Flood announced.
Here’s a picture of the helmet courtesy of Rutgers Athletics:
According to the University of Pittsburgh’s Brain Trauma Research Center, over 300,000 sports-related concussions are reported around the United States each year due to the number of players suffering from residual concussive damage. Researchers at Reebok and the electronic company, MC10, have developed a head impact indictor called Checklight that has sensors used to determine the severity of hits to the head
Fitted with LED sensors, green, yellow, and red lights reveal how many head shots from which the player suffers as well as the severity of each hit A yellow flashing light indicates a moderate hit while a red light signifies a severe hit. The cap fits inside a players’ helmet(and can be worn without ) with the light on the back of the head exposed so medical staff, coaches, or referees can see the level of impact to a player’s head during gameplay it does not identify if a player has sustained a concussion however. This will allow coaches to pull players from a game to prevent further injury and diagnose if a player has a concussion.
“In the heat of a game, you might not respond to a hit if you’re in the zone and the crowd is cheering,” explained spokeswoman for MC10, Elyse Kabinoff. “But now with the light coming on, it signals to others that you need to get checked.”
Colts backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck said this product is ideal for youth sports:”I’ve got kids who are playing football this year where it’s not a business. One thing I say to parents is that you can’t see every play. Even though there’s a coach out there, they’re not watching your kid every single play. The Checklight is an extra set of eyes for you on your child. The lights are in a spot where anyone can see it.”
Checklight is available to coaches and players at all levels for $149.99 and comes in different sizes to fit each player’s proportions. It’s proving to be an effective training tool in contact sports. What are your thoughts about this device?
