Geek Pick SteelSeries Arctis 9X Is An Excellent Xbox Headset

first_imgStay on target Wireless gaming headsets present a whole host of dumb cross-compatibility issues. While just about everything works with PC, headsets made for either the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 don’t work on the other console. And don’t even get us started on the Nintendo Switch’s “voice chat” solutions. So keep in mind the SteelSeries Arctis 9X is made for Xbox One. Even getting it to work on PC requires an Xbox Wireless Adapter as just a straight Bluetooth connection hurts performance.Fortunately, the headsets works fantastically on the platforms it’s built for. As we expect from SteelSeries the audio quality is high, remaining balanced as you listen to the sounds from the game itself or your friends’ voices picked up by the impressive microphone. The dual audio connection even lets you pipe in music at the same time. Only the weak bass stands out as a flaw.The physical headset itself is also comfortable, which is good because why else go wireless unless you’re looking for extra comfort. You’ll have no issues leaving the elastic headband and memory foam ears cups on your head for extended gaming sessions.For more on the SteelSeries Arctis 9X check out the extensive review on our sister site PCMag.com.

Reichel, 39, appeared Monday in Clark County Superior Court on suspicion of two counts of second-degree assault, one count of second-degree domestic violence assault, felony harassment and fourth-degree domestic violence assault.Vancouver police responded at about 9:50 p.m. Saturday to a tavern in Rose Village for a reported assault.

He drove to her home in the 3100 block of Bridge Street, he said, and entered her house with his key. There, he found her in bed with Reichel, the affidavit states. Court records say she is Reichel’s wife.Reichel jumped out of bed and began punching Bradbury in the head and pushed him down the stairs, according to court documents.

Big retailers split on store hours for Thanksgiving

first_imgMINNEAPOLIS — The big debate this year among big-box retailers is not whether they will open on Thanksgiving but whether they keep their stores open all night.On one side is Target, which said Monday it will join Best Buy and Macy’s, which have closed their stores in the overnight hours in recent years. They have found less payoff in staying open during the wee hours when traffic dwindles now that their stores are open earlier on Thanksgiving evening.On the other side is Kohl’s, J.C. Penney and Toys ‘R’ Us, which are sticking with their open all-night hours this year as they have done the last several years.Staffing during the overnight hours may not be worth it not only because the stores can be dead but also because consumers can now access most of those same deals online at any hour of the day, said Neil Saunders, managing director of GlobalData Retail.“Staying open all night is not very economical,” he said. “If you’re not getting the sales, it’s not worth it. It also shows that Black Friday is not as important as it once was.”last_img read more

Washougal School District said about an hour later that it had closed its facilities for the day.Green Mountain cancelled its lunch service and asked students to bring a lunch.Meteorologist Evan Bentley said areas around 500 feet in the Vancouver area got a light dusting of snow, but not a measurable amount.

Columbia Springs serves up steady stream of wild things to study

first_imgColumbia Springs’ mission is environmental education. One of its youngest volunteers, Ciara Downey, stuck to that mission Saturday during Family Nature Day as she regaled visitors with facts about the humble crayfish.“One fact: They pinch. Also, he can swim backwards with his tail,” said Ciara, 7, as she held a crayfish in a small plastic box.“Wanna see a baby sculpin?” Ciara asked, referring to a small fish.Her mom, Annemarie Downey, said their family volunteers at Columbia Springs often and participates in salmon releases. On Saturday, they were among a cadre of volunteers who had scooped up aquatic macro invertebrates and placed them in plastic bins filled with water so people could observe them up close.Andrew Flath, 8, was using a large pipette to suck up water and invertebrates.“He’s interested in all these little creatures,” said his dad, Christopher Flath.Andrew’s mom, Jennifer Flath, meanwhile, was a bit unnerved by the caddisfly larvae, which make ornate protective cases out of rocks, wood and whatever they find in the stream — in some cases making them look like a living piece of bark.The Flath family visits the Water Resources Education Center and Columbia Springs in Vancouver often. They heard about Family Nature Day online. It’s a good place to take kids, Christopher Flath said.last_img read more

Inter turn their attention to Rafinha

first_imgInter have accepted Luka Modric is out of reach and turned their attention to Barcelona midfielder Rafinha.Rafinha spent last season as a loaned player at Inter. The Italians wanted to keep him, but were unable to collect the €40 million Barcelona requested in order to make the deal permanent. As a result, he went back to Catalonia and even started in the team’s 2-1 Spanish Super Cup victory over Sevilla last night.After much talk about a potential move for Luka Modric, Inter have finally come to terms with reality. In the search for alternatives, Rafinha is on top of the list (Football Espana).

In a recent interview (Calcio Mercato), Rafinha expressed the wish to continue his career in Inter.“I spent some splendid months at Inter, and I would have liked to continue playing there, I’d like to return there but I am a Barcelona player now.” “My objective is to play, any player would want to play. I don’t know if this will be here or elsewhere but I want to play.”Rafinha Alcantara would be a great addition for Inter Milan (albeit not as good as Modric). The Nerrazzuri have Brozovic, Nainggolan, Vecino and Borja Valero in midfield, but neither of them is capable of playing in an advanced midfield role as Rafinha is.last_img read more

What we don’t know, with the Navy planning to stage training operations in potentially contaminated waters, are the national security concerns,” Davis said. “The Navy should take a look at this and coordinate with relevant agencies to assess what can be done to prevent future spills.”Davis, a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, may include language in this year’s defense bill to commission a Navy report regarding the cumulative tens of millions of gallons of sewage that have sickened people and forced South Bay beach closures.The 600-acre SEAL training campus is estimated to take 10 years to complete, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Personnel are expected to gradually migrate from the existing Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado.Davis’ call for a Navy report comes as the Port of San Diego and cities of Chula Vista and Imperial Beach forge ahead with a lawsuit alleging the federal government is violating two U.S. laws that protect water quality and public health. The suit also targets the private operator of a treatment plant that serves Tijuana.Beaches as far north as the Hotel del Coronado have been forced to close as sewage is driven out of Baja into American waters.In 2010, former U.S. Border Patrol agent Josh Willey contracted a flesh-eating bacterial infection while training at the Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado. The infection is thought to be related to sewage spills.The Mexican government announced in March it will invest $4.35 million in upgrades to Tijuana’s wastewater system to reduce sewage flows, but funds fall far short of the approximately $330 million in recommended upgrades outlined by the Baja California government.
