Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Marvel Snap just had a patch last night that changed how you can acquire new cards. There is a new currency called Collector’s Tokens, where you will earn it over time and be able to save for Tier 3, 4 and 5 cards which rotate through the shop every few hours. If you can’t afford one when you see it, you can pin it until you have saved up enough. The new Tier 4 and 5 cards are way more expensive, 3,000 and 6,000 respectively, and most of those cards are too new to really understand how they’ll work in the meta. So I going to stick with advice on 1,000 cost Tier 3 cards instead. You may have gotten some of these naturally, but here are ten I think are worth buying: Sera – 5/4, Ongoing: Cards in your hand cost 1 less (minimum 1) – A monster for big plays on turn 6. Just got nerfed but still strong. Wong – 4/2, Ongoing: Your On Reveal abilities at this location happen twice – Creating some wild scenarios with loads … [Read more...] about The Best ‘Marvel Snap’ Pool 3 Cards To Buy With Collector’s Tokens
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Assassins' Creed Valhalla remains one of the most curious AAA gaming experiments in some time, where Ubisoft took a traditionally single player game and more or less turned it into a live service with a huge amount of small and large updates. The last Assassin’s Creed Valhalla update, The Last Chapter, is out December 6, and features story content that serves as a bridge to the upcoming next game in the series, Mirage, starring one of the side characters from Valhalla. But it also has more than that, including a pretty wild set of collaborations with other games like Monster Hunter and Destiny 2. The collaboration includes new armor sets and weapons from those games, which you can see in the video below. For Destiny 2, my “main” game, we have armor that dresses you up like Lord Shaxx and Saint 14, and weapons that are a Hunter arc staff, a Lightblade sword and a Gjallarhorn inspired greatsword I now wish was an actual … [Read more...] about Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Leaked ‘Monster Hunter’ And ‘Destiny 2’ Collaborations Look Wild
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin A cream-colored scoop of ugali ( oo-gali ) maize porridge sits in my plate— a round, stiff ball— its circumference saturated by a colorful mélange of greens and tomatoes, and a perfect pink snapper, staring at me with one intact eye. I feel a twinge of nostalgia creep up on me in this eastern Kenyan town, more than 10,000 kilometers from home. Ugali reminds me of cou cou , the national dish of Barbados— my native country— and my Romanian father’s mamaliga that he’d boil into a lumpy mixture with milk. But although ugali shares some basic ingredients with other versions of maize porridge enjoyed around the world, its elevated meaning to the Kenyan people makes it truly distinct. Ugali is not a side dish like mashed potatoes or rice— it is a cultural phenomenon— and it’s so much more than just food. Songa ugali Eh | Foundation weka ya samaki | Ni katikati ya January | Kula ukashirishe kamati… Cook ugali … [Read more...] about Small Businesses Provide A Scoop Of Hope In Kenya, The Land Of Ugali
In semi-autonomous Hong Kong, where mass democracy protests erupted in 2019, dozens gathered at the Chinese University to mourn the victims of the Urumqi fire. "Don't look away. Don't forget," protesters shouted. (Image: AFP) Li Yuan (The New New World) They went to their first demonstrations. They chanted their first protest slogans. They had their first encounters with the police. Then they went home, shivering in disbelief at how they had challenged the most powerful authoritarian government in the world and the most iron-fisted leader China has seen in decades. Young Chinese are protesting the country’s harsh “zero-Covid” policy and even urging its top leader, Xi Jinping , to step down. It’s something China hasn’t seen since 1989, when the ruling Communist Party brutally cracked down on the pro-democracy demonstrators, mostly college students. No matter what happens in the days and weeks ahead, the young protesters presented a new threat to the rule of Xi, who has … [Read more...] about Proud, scared and conflicted.

Emma C. Bunker’s name is hard to avoid when strolling through the Denver Art Museum’s fifth-floor galleries. Visitors entering the Southeast Asian wing are welcomed to the Bunker Gallery, her name displayed in large white lettering, lit up on the forest green wall. The scholar’s gifts are featured in nearly every Asian art exhibit, which showcase exquisite wonders from across the continent: Palanquin hooks from Cambodia, mythical birds from Indonesia, bronze bracelets from Iran, tiles with lotus heads from Turkey. After Bunker’s death last year at 90, the museum dedicated an Asian art acquisition fund in her honor, celebrating six decades of contributions to a collection the museum touts as “one of the finest of its kind in North America.” A longtime museum consultant and leading scholar, Bunker helped assemble the Denver institution’s 7,000-piece Asian art collection through her relationships with some of the world’s biggest antiquities collectors. But those close … [Read more...] about How the Denver Art Museum became a “laundromat” for stolen Asian relics
