Going to make this into a mini series, of sorts, I think. Blog posts talking about cool stuff done in AAA that we can steal on the lower budget end of things. I did something similar about AAA input smoothing, here.
Basically, Destiny’s UI does a lot of very clever UI stuff, some of which I’ll…
With Destiny 2 days away from launch as of this posting, I managed to wrangle my Dad to take me up to the local mountains with my Hunter cosplay for a mini photo shoot.
The costume’s the first cosplay I’ve ever attempted and I have been slowly working on it for a while, using some paintball kit I have along with obtaining other pieces to build up the costume fully. It got it’s first test run at MCM London this May past, but is now completed ready for Midnight release and the EuroGamer Expo (EGX) in London this September
Hopefully it’s not too rubbish, the wind played havoc with my cloak…
JACK THE RIPPER IDENTITY FINALLY REVEALED AFTER 126 YEARS THANKS TO DNA EVIDENCE
DNA evidence has uncovered the identity of Jack The Ripper, and it’s none of the romantic suspects – such as the Queen’s surgeon Sir William Gull, or artist Walter Sickert.
The most infamous serial killer in history has been identified as a relatively underwhelming Polish madman called Aaron Kosminski, who was committed to a mental asylum at the height of the Ripper hysteria.
Kosminski was actually a suspect at the time of the murders, even named by Chief Inspector Donald Swanson in notes the policemen made, but as the myth and legend of the murders grew over more than 125 years, so too did the list of more fanciful suspects.
The breakthrough came when a scientist, using cutting-edge technology, matched DNA evidence on a shawl found at one of the crime scenes with descendants of Kosminski.
Dr Jari Louhelainen, a Finnish expert in historic DNA, was brought in to study a shawl found with Catherine Eddowes, the second-last ‘confirmed’ victim of the Ripper, whose body was discovered in Mitre Square on September 30.
Dr Louhelainen is quoted as saying: ‘It has taken a great deal of hard work, using cutting-edge scientific techniques which would not have been possible five years ago.
‘Once I had the profile, I could compare it to that of the female descendant of Kosminski’s sister, who had given us a sample of her DNA swabbed from inside her mouth.
‘The first strand of DNA showed a 99.2 per cent match, as the analysis instrument could not determine the sequence of the missing 0.8 per cent fragment of DNA. On testing the second strand, we achieved a perfect 100 per cent match.’
