KEY POINTS

  • Strange circles are forming off the “Armored Royale” map
  • Players must now watch out for opposing members who might be lurking in the mysterious gas
  • The gas bug is new to “Armored Royale” and was also seen on “Warzone” 

“Call of Duty: Warzone” players have seen mysterious circles randomly sprouting on their maps in the past, but these mysterious spheres came out to be a minor threat. These circles are now being reported in “Armored Royale,” and it looks like they mean business.

“Armored Royale” is a new mode in Season 6 of “Call of Duty: Warzone” where players can exploit heavily armored trucks to their advantage in a fast-paced action of steel and bullets. It is exciting, to say the least, but the enigmatic gas that floats around the map is proving to be a “constantly evolving threat” to players, especially to those who have no idea

US Lawmakers Call For Shake-up Of Big Tech ‘Monopolies’

A House of Representatives panel in a report Tuesday accused four Big Tech firms of acting as “monopolies,” calling for sweeping changes to antitrust laws and enforcement that could potentially lead to breakups of the giant firms.

But the report by the House Judiciary Committee failed to win the endorsement of Republican members, highlighting a partisan divide despite widespread criticism of the tech giants.

The 449-page document concluded that Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google “engage in a form of their own private quasi regulation that is unaccountable to anyone but themselves.”

“Companies that once were scrappy, underdog startups that challenged the status quo have become the kinds of monopolies we last saw in the era of oil barons and railroad tycoons,” the report said.

The report follows an investigation of more than 15 months and hearings this year with the top executives of the four firms, in parallel to antitrust

Call me! How technology is changing our hand gestures | Language

Name: Hand gestures.

Age: Older than language.

Appearance: Demonstrative hand signals encoding commonly understood meanings.

I don’t follow you. Can you give me an example of what you’re talking about? Certainly: placing a fist alongside your head, thumb and little finger extended, in the manner of a man trying to scratch his chin and his ear at the same time.

OK. And what does that mean? Can’t you guess?

Does it mean: “My ear and my chin both itch”? No! It means: “Call me.”

What? How do you figure that? It’s miming holding a phone – the thumb is the earpiece, the little finger is the mouthpiece, and the fist is pretending to grab the long bit in between.

You’ve seen a phone, right? I guess it wouldn’t make much sense if you’ve only ever used a flat, rectangular mobile.

You’re correct, it wouldn’t. Give me a better example.

How Realistic Is Novak Djokovic’s Call For Tennis Line Judges To Be Replaced By Technology?

Tennis player Novak Djokovic has suggested the sport dispense with human line judges and replace them with technology.

The current world number one men’s player made the comments at the French Open after his straight-set fourth-round victory over Karen Khachanov, during which he accidentally hit the ball into a line judge’s face when returning a serve.

Normally, this would be deemed an unfortunate but unremarkable tennis incident. However, it came just weeks after the Serb was ejected from the US Open for inadvertently hitting a ball at the throat of a line judge in New York.

Djokovic’s view
