North Korea has executed its Defense Chief, Hyon Yong Chol, by firing squad ‘using an anti-aircraft gun,’ South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) has said.

Hundreds of North KOrean officials watched Hyon’s execution on April 30, the deputy director of the NIS was paraphrased as saying to South Korean lawmakers
.

News of the event was publicized by Yonhap early morning Wednesday morning, who claimed the NIS said he was punished for falling asleep during formal military events.

The alleged development follows rumors of a further execution of up to 15 officials under two weeks ago, for challenging Kim Jong Un’s authority.

“If it is true, which is yet to be confirmed, such executions would make other current and future officials and military officers less trusting of one another and of the leadership above them,” said John Grisafi, NK News Director of Intelligence.

“(This) would undermine the chain of command and organizational strength within the North Korean regime,” Grisafi added.

Hyon’s last appearance in Pyongyang’s state media was just one day prior to the alleged execution, on April 29. Prior to that, he typically appeared two to six times per month.

Hyon was minister of the People’s Armed Forces since last June, when he replaced Jang Jong Nam.

His career had ups and downs. He achieved the rank of vice marshal in 2012 but was demoted to colonel general later that same year, for unknown reasons, though he remained in his post of chief of the General Staff.

Two men were shot in a parking lot outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland Sunday afternoon, SWAT officials told News 8.

Those men possibly had explosives on them, SWAT officials said. Everyone at the center, which was hosting a Muhammad Art exhibit, was told to find a safe place inside the building.

SWAT members were already at the scene for the art event.

Rowlett/Sachse Scanner reported on Facebook that a suspect was inside a nearby Walmart, off Garland Avenue and Naaman Forest Boulevard with a hand grenade.

"Gaming company OUYA is on the auction block after tripping a debt covenant, according to a confidential email sent out earlier this month from CEO Julie Uhrman to company investors and advisors.

Investment bank Mesa Global — which recently managed the sale of music service Songza to Google GOOG -0.27% — has been hired to manage the process. No word yet on asking price.

OUYA originally raised $15 million in Series A funding in early 2013 from investors like Kleiner Perkins, Mayfield Fund, Occam Partners, Shasta Ventures and NVIDIA NVDA 0.18% . Not too long after, it quietly secured some venture debt from TriplePoint Capital.

It is unclear exactly how much was lent by TriplePoint, except that it must have been more than the $10 million that OUYA raised just two months ago from Alibaba BABA 0.06% . Debt restructuring negotiations were unsuccessful. In her memo, Uhrman writes: 'Given our debtholder’s timeline, the process will be quick. We are looking for expressions of interest by the end of this month.'"


So, given the hilariously low probability of a company buying this wreck of a product, I think it falls on us to buy them. I have $12 credit on my gamestop membership card and a used copy of Far Cry 2 for the PS3. You move, Ouya.

Landmark Theatres said tonight that the New York premiere of Sony’s controversial comedy The Interview has been canceled. The event was set for Thursday night at the Sunshine Cinema on the Lower East Side. Earlier tonight, Sony had told exhibitors that they could pull the Seth Rogen-James Franco pic if they were worried about the terrorist threat issued this morning by the group that attacked Sony Pictures. Carmike Cinemas was the first chain to say it wouldn’t screen The Interview.
. . .

Carmike Cinemas will not to show the Sony comedy The Interview, a source tells The Hollywood Reporter. 

The decision followed new threats from hackers issued Tuesday. During discussions with theater owners during the course of the day, Sony Pictures told exhibitors who had booked The Interview that it planned to move forward with the movie's release, but that they were free to decide not to show the film, and that the studio would support them in whatever decision they made.

Carmike's headquarters are in Columbus, Ga. It operates 278 theaters and 2,917 screens in 41 states.

Well, this has turned into a mess. Congrats to Rogan and Franco for making the most important film of the 21st century.

NATO released new satellite images on Thursday, 28 August 2014, that show Russian combat forces engaged in military operations inside the sovereign territory of Ukraine. The images, captured in late August, depict Russian self-propelled artillery units moving in a convoy through the Ukrainian countryside and then preparing for action by establishing firing positions in the area of Krasnodon, Ukraine.

Dutch Brigadier General Nico Tak, director of the Comprehensive Crisis and Operations Management Centre (CCOMC), Allied Command Operations said the images confirmed what NATO and its Allies had been seeing for weeks from other sources.

"Over the past two weeks we have noted a significant escalation in both the level and sophistication of Russia's military interference in Ukraine," said Brigadier General Tak. "The satellite images released today provide additional evidence that Russian combat soldiers, equipped with sophisticated heavy weaponry, are operating inside Ukraine's sovereign territory," he said.

These latest images provide concrete examples of Russian activity inside Ukraine, but are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of the overall scope of Russian troop and weapons movements.

"We have also detected large quantities of advanced weapons, including air defence systems, artillery, tanks, and armoured personnel carriers being transferred to separatist forces in Eastern Ukraine," said Brigadier General Tak. "The presence of these weapons along with substantial numbers of Russian combat troops inside Ukraine make the situation increasingly grave," he said.

Also released were images showing substantial activity inside Russia in areas adjacent to the border with Ukraine. NATO believes this activity is being conducted in direct support to forces operating inside Ukraine, and is part of a highly coordinated and destabilising strategy.

 "Russia is reinforcing and resupplying separatist forces in a blatant attempt to change the momentum of the fighting, which is currently favouring the Ukrainian military," Brigadier General Tak said. "Russia's ultimate aim is to alleviate pressure on separatist fighters in order to prolong this conflict indefinitely, which would result in further tragedy for the people of Eastern Ukraine," he added.

The source of the images is an independent firm named Digital Globe. The images have not been altered or changed by NATO. Additional information has been added to identify locations, dates and equipment. DigitalGlobe images can be independently verified: www.digitalglobe.com


Well, hopefully this'll put paid to claims that the "seperatists" are just an independent group of rebels. Or maybe we're just in for some Olympics-level gymnastics from Russia and the conspiracy theorists who eat up everything they say.

I was blocked by hoggys2much, too. That Nintendo-hating troll gets on my nerves.

And now, he's (at least temporarily) gone.

"Now he's gone, now he's gone.
Like a steam locomotive running down the track,
He's gone, he's gone
And nothing's gonna bring him back.
He's gone."

This is terrible for the future of Bayonetta as a franchise, it'll never be on Xbox or PS consoles again because when this game inevitably sells poorly Sega's just going to write it off as "no one is interested in Bayonetta anymore".

No smart person would buy a Wii U just for one game.

when this game inevitably sells poorly Sega's just going to write it off as "no one is interested in Bayonetta anymore".

Except, Sega already decided that nobody was interested in Bayonetta and dropped it, which is why Ninty's calling the shots; apparently, XBox and PS consoles suck at selling non-exclusive games that don't play like CoD. But hey, you enjoy making up reasons for your allegiance to your underpowered PC-in-a-box; I'll enjoy Bayonetta 2 and my other niche games.

That's highly disingenuous. Sega would've been able to fund the game for several platforms by themselves but Nintendo opportunistically swooped in and stole it for their annual attempt at "bringing hardcore gamers back" which never works for them. They do this every single time they launch a new system: they find themselves hounded by their previous system's "kiddy" image and want to win back the hardcore gamers, so they spend money to acquire a few mature exclusives, which inevitably fail to find their audience on their piece of shit system, and then Nintendo gives up and go back to making toothless games for grandmas and 5 year olds, leaving the core gamers to rot. It happened on the Gamecube, it happened again on the Wii and it's happening again now.

And there's a ton of non-exclusive games on these systems that don't play like COD that sell extremely well. Haven't you ever played Assassin's Creed? Bioshock? Dishonored? Mass Effect? You don't have a clue what you're talking about, and as far as I can see, you're just one of those Nintendo fanboys that treats it as if COD and Mario are the only two games that exist. There is a middle ground you know.

I also find it laughable that you call the other systems underpowered when your system of choice for the last 6 years has been running on hardware barely more powerful than an abacus. And it's even more funny now that Nintendo's set themselves up to be the underpowered one yet again going into the next generation, once MS and Sony release their powerhouses that'll blast it out of the water.
