Quest: Saudi Arabia's amazing transition

Bike sharing in China highlights hurdles of doing business Quest’s Profitable Moment It is always fascinating to visit and experience countries in transition. I am in Saudi Arabia where I have been attending the Misk Global Forum. Saudi is undergoing a transformation the likes of which haven’t been seen in decades. Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has made dramatic changes, from decreeing that women can drive next year to a massive crackdown on corruption. More than 200 arrests have sent the message: It’s no longer business as usual in Saudi. ...

Off to an amazing start, can the Celtics contend for a championship?

7:00 AM ET Since losing their first two games in the 24 hours after seeing All-Star newcomer Gordon Hayward suffer a horrific ankle dislocation and fractured tibia on opening night, the Boston Celtics have ripped off 12 consecutive wins to hold the NBA’s best record at 12-2.

While the 70-win season the ...

This Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Statue At NYCC Is Amazing

New York Comic-Con is filled with a ton of eye-catching booths, events, and cosplayers everywhere. It’s a sensory overload; however, I found calm and inner-peace when I was this life-sized Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure statue at the Viz Media booth, which you can stare at for hours below. This statue coming in at around seven feet tall is quite possibly one of the coolest things at the convention. The attention to detail, the paint, and sculpting are amazing. After getting hypnotized by Jotaro’s two belts, floating gold chain, and the defiantly ...

Hill's climb to an amazing start keyed by efficiency

11:32 PM ET ESPN Stats & Information So Rich Hill didn’t get the perfect game, the no-hitter or even the win. But it’s amazing that he was even in position to get as far as he did. Hill was the second starting pitcher in the past 10 seasons to throw a pitch in the 10th inning, joining Cliff Lee. He did so while taking a perfect game into the ninth inning and a no-hitter into the 10th. Hill is the first pitcher to lose a no-hit bid in the 10th ...

This new application of layered neural nets is about to make Photoshop amazing

And yet every year, Photoshop and tools like it get a little more sophisticated, and it gets tougher to tell what’s a ‘shop and what’s not. More research comes out, more programs are written to incorporate the new research, and then artists get their hands on the tools and develop a deft and subtle touch. Now a group of researchers from Cornell University and Adobe have layered neural nets atop an image style ...

Breath of the Wild is an amazing Zelda title, but performance falls short

The Legend of Zelda has captivated us for more than three decades now, and this franchise still has the capacity to surprise and delight. With Breath of the Wild, the latest installment, Nintendo has made a clean break from much of the traditions and baggage that comes with the name “Zelda” in favor of a Switch launch title that feels exciting and modern. We saw the 3DS-exclusive A Link Between Worlds hit in 2013, but we haven’t had a full-fledged console Zelda release since November of 2011 — more than ...
