The Bands Visit cleans up at Tony Awards winning best musicalThe Bands Visit cleans up at Tony Awards winning best musical

first_img“(Let’s) just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked,” he said, to rousing applause. Lane, who won for best featured actor in a play, said Angels still speaks to society in the midst of “political insanity.” Advertisement NEW YORK — The American, grown-up musical The Band’s Visit outmuscled the acclaimed and sprawling British import Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for the most Tony Awards on Sunday, capturing 10 statuettes, including best musical.It’s based on a 2007 Israeli film of the same name and centres on members of an Egyptian police orchestra booked to play a concert at an Israeli city who accidentally end up in the wrong town. Its embrace of foreign cultures working together found a sweet spot with Tony voters.“In The Band’s Visit, music gives people hope and makes borders disappear,” producer Orin Wolf said upon accepting the best new musical crown, saying It offers a message of unity in a world that “more and more seems bent on amplifying our differences.” Facebook Tony Shalhoub won as best leading man in a musical for his work on The Band’s Visit, connecting the win to his family’s long history of immigration from Lebanon, and the show’s Katrina Lenk, who won best actress in a musical, said the production “filled her stupid little heart with so much joy.”The Band’s Visit also won statuettes for best direction, orchestration, sound design, best book and score, lighting and featured actor Ari’el Stachel, who gave a heartfelt speech about his past.

He thanked the creators of the show “for being courageous for telling a small story about Arabs and Israelis getting along at a time that we need that more than ever.”The show’s director, David Cromer, said the musical is also about loneliness and despair, and asked everyone to reach out to anyone for whom “despair is overwhelming.”The two-part spectacle Harry Potter and the Cursed Child captured six awards, including best play, book, lighting, sound design, orchestrations and director for John Tiffany, who asked the crowd to sing “Happy Birthday” to his boyfriend. They obliged.A British revival of Angels in America, Tony Kushner’s monumental, two-part drama about AIDS, life and love during the 1980s, grabbed three big awards, including best play revival and acting trophies for Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane.Kushner took the stage and pointed out there were 21 weeks until the midterm elections in the United States: “Twenty-one weeks to save our democracy, to heal our country and to heal our planet.”Garfield won his first Tony, for best leading actor in a play, dedicating the win to the LGBTQ community, who he said fought and died for the right to love. He said the play is a rejection of bigotry, shame and oppression.“We are all sacred and we all belong,” Garfield said. He then referenced last week’s U.S. Supreme Court decision which ruled in favour of a baker’s right to deny a gay couple a wedding cake based on his beliefs.

The play won six awards on the night, including best play.  (SARA KRULWICH/NYT).In one of the ceremony’s most mesmerizing moments, Melody Herzfeld, the heroic drama teacher who nurtured many of the young people demanding change following the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida, was honoured from the Tony Award stage.Herzfeld, the one-woman drama department at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was cheered by the crowd at Radio City Music Hall. Herzfeld saved 65 lives by barricading students into a small classroom closet on Valentine’s Day when police say a former student went on a school rampage, killing 17 people.She then later encouraged many of her pupils to lead the nationwide movement for gun reform. Members of Herzfeld’s drama department took the Tony stage to serenade her with “Seasons of Love” from the musical Rent.In other wins, Glenda Jackson added to her impressive resume with a Tony Award for best actress in a play for her work in a revival of Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women. That show also yielded the featured actress win to Rosanne star Laurie Metcalf.Billy Joel gave his friend Bruce Springsteen a special Tony Award. “This is deeply appreciated, and thanks for making me feel so welcome on your block,” The Boss said. Later, Springsteen performed “My Hometown” on the piano from his sold-out one-man show, Springsteen on Broadway. (De Niro, who took the stage to introduce Springsteen’s performance, started off with an expletive directed at President Donald Trump, which garnered him a sustained standing ovation from the crowd.)Co-hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles kicked the show off with a self-parodying duet on piano for all the losers out there — including them.Neither Bareilles nor Groban have won a Grammy or a Tony despite selling millions of albums and appearing on Broadway. They turned that into a playful song. “Let’s not forget that 90 per cent of us leave empty-handed tonight. So this is for the people who lose/Most of us have been in your shoes,” they sang in the upbeat opening number.Two of the shows going into the night with the leading number of nominations — Tina Fey’s Mean Girls and SpongeBob SquarePants, with 12 nods each — found the night tough. Mean Girls won nothing and SpongeBob SquarePants got only one for best set design.The revival of Carousel won two awards — choreography and for Lindsay Mendez, who won best featured actress in a musical. She accepted in tears, recounting that when she moved to New York, she was told to change her last name to Matthews or she wouldn’t work. She said she was happy to be in a production that “celebrates diversity and individuality.” To all artists out there, she said: “Just be your true self and the world will take note.”One of the show highlights was the lively performance by the cast of Once on This Island that included a sand-filled beach, real water and a goat. Onstage guests were volunteers and staffers from three organizations that bring relief to areas impacted by natural disasters. The show went on to win best musical revival, beating My Fair Lady and Carousel.Getting buzz from appearing on the telecast can dictate a show’s future, both on Broadway and on tour. Broadway producers will be thankful this year that the telecast won’t have to compete with any NBA Finals or Stanley Cup playoff games.For most of the previous awards season, shows like the Oscars and Golden Globes have acknowledged the issue of sexual misconduct and abuse of power. The Tonys didn’t specifically address that, but did touch on gun violence, depression, politics and inclusion.The show was a sort of victory lap for a Broadway season that saw grosses hit another record high by pulling in $1.7 billion — up 17.1 per cent over last season’s $1.45 billion. Attendance was also up, coming in a 13.79 million, an increase of 3.9 per cent at last season’s 13.27 million. Twitterlast_img read more

Greater accountability needed to boost womens rights UN agency saysGreater accountability needed to boost womens rights UN agency says

18 September 2008Stronger accountability measures are needed to track progress governments and multilateral organizations have made in implementing their commitments to enhancing women’s rights, according to a new report by the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). Stronger accountability measures are needed to track progress governments and multilateral organizations have made in implementing their commitments to enhancing women’s rights, according to a new report by the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM).The publication – “Progress of the World’s Women 2008/2009, Who Answers to Women? Gender and Accountability” – says that there is a long way to go to ensuring that pledges to women’s rights are translated into changes in their lives.“Without accountability, Governments will not allocate resources fairly, which will hit the poor hardest,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today at the report’s launch. “Within that category, poor women are the most severely impacted, because they often lack access to education, political office and courts. They are marginalized, not mobilized, and their needs are ignored, not answered.”In legislatures, women decision-makers are outnumbered four to one, while women earn on average 17 per cent less than men. Some one-third of women are victims of gender-based violence during their lives, and one in 10 women dies while pregnant despite the fact that preventing maternal mortality is relatively inexpensive.The report points out that accountability mechanisms work best for women when they can ask for explanations, information and – when needed – compensation or investigations.It “shows how to respond to resource constraints with a creative approach that puts women first,” Mr. Ban said.“That means ensuring rights through accountability. It means enabling women to mobilize, and achieve more and better political representation,” he added.The publication’s launch comes one week before world leaders converge on UN Headquarters in New York to discuss the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), eight anti-poverty goals with a 2015 deadline.“Building accountability for gender equality is not a luxury, it’s a necessity,” UNIFEM Executive Director Inés Alberdi told reporters in New York, adding that moving from “commitments to results” is crucial to meet the MDGs.Governments and organizations not doing a better job of answering to women impede poverty reduction as well as human development, she said, pointing to the example of maternal mortality.“Reforming the health system to reduce maternal mortality is cheap and uncomplicated,” Ms. Alberdi said, but more than half a million women die every year from complications giving birth.The rate of maternal mortality is falling at a rate of 0.4 per cent annually, far shy of the 5.5 per cent drop needed to meet the fifth MDG, which calls for slashing the ratio by three-quarters by 2015.The UNIFEM study calls on multilateral aid and security institutions to step up efforts to work towards their own standards regarding gender equality, noting that organizations such as the UN have no agreed means to assess the amount of funding earmarked for women’s rights. read more

UNICEF report reveals a digital divide in Sri LankaUNICEF report reveals a digital divide in Sri Lanka

The full UNICEF Sri Lanka-commissioned report entitled, ‘Keeping Children in Sri Lanka Safe and Empowered Online: A study on Sri Lanka’s digital landscape’ will be released on Safer Internet Day, 6th February 2018. And digital networks like the Dark Web and cryptocurrencies are enabling the worst forms of exploitation and abuse, including trafficking and ‘made to order’ online child sexual abuse. The flagship report explores the benefits digital technology can offer the most disadvantaged children, including those growing up in poverty or affected by humanitarian emergencies. These include increasing their access to information, building skills for the digital workplace, and giving them a platform to connect and communicate their views.But the report also shows that millions of children are missing out, and face a ‘digital divide’ based on poverty, gender or other factors. Around one third of the world’s youth – 346 million – are not online, exacerbating inequities and reducing children’s ability to participate in an increasingly digital economy.The report also examines how the internet increases children’s vulnerability to risks and harms, including misuse of their private information, access to harmful content, and cyberbullying. The ubiquitous presence of mobile devices, the report notes, has made online access for many children less supervised – and potentially more dangerous. A report released today by the UN children’s agency UNICEF revealed a ‘digital divide’ in Sri Lanka.Drawing on data from the soon to be released first-ever Sri Lankan national study into the online usage of 11 to 18-year old’s, today’s report highlights a ‘digital divide’ that sees girls in Sri Lanka account for only a third of the adolescents using computers and mobile phones to go online. “In a digital world, our dual challenge is how to mitigate the harms while maximizing the benefits of the internet for every child” said UNICEF Sri Lanka Representative Tim Sutton, adding “It is simply not good enough that many young people – especially girls – are missing out on the real benefits of the internet in Sri Lanka. For this country to achieve its ambitious economic and societal goals, we must provide equal opportunities for success to our next generation. This must include equal access to information to enable young people to build their skills for the digital workplace. Critically, however children need a safe and secure online platform to connect and communicate their views” Despite children’s massive online presence – 1 in 3 internet users worldwide is a child – too little is done to protect them from the perils of the digital world and to increase their access to safe online content, UNICEF said in its annual flagship report released today.The State of the World’s Children 2017: Children in a digital world presents UNICEF’s first comprehensive look at the different ways digital technology is affecting children’s lives and life chances, identifying dangers as well as opportunities. It argues that governments and the private sector have not kept up with the pace of change, exposing children to new risks and harms and leaving millions of the most disadvantaged children behind. The report presents current data and analysis about children’s online usage and the impact of digital technology on children’s wellbeing, exploring growing debates about digital “addiction” and the possible effect of screen time on brain development.

UN agency appeals for aid to avoid cutting refugee rations in RwandaUN agency appeals for aid to avoid cutting refugee rations in Rwanda

Food rations for 50,000 refugees in Rwanda will be cut by nearly one-third next month unless donors provide another $2.6 million, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) said today.Refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Burundi, fleeing unrest and violence, have been pouring into Rwanda over the past year.“WFP has done all it can to help the newly arrived refugees. Today we are providing food assistance to 50,000 refugees, 15,000 more than the number we originally targeted,” WFP’s Alix Loriston said. “But without new contributions from the international community, we will no longer be able to provide a complete food ration, putting the health and morale of these refugees in danger.”Refugees in the six camps and centres in Rwanda are forbidden to look for jobs and because of “the closed, secluded nature of the camps,” they cannot farm or undertake other income-generating activities, WFP said.Meanwhile, the number of malnourished Rwandan children and pregnant and lactating women who must go to supplementary and therapeutic feeding centres has jumped because of cuts in cereal rations last month as poor rainfall affected crops, especially in Kibungo, Umutara, Bugesera and Gikongoro provinces, it said.WFP said it feeds 309,000 people in Rwanda, including school children and people infected with HIV.The donors to the Rwanda programme last year were the United States, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Belgium and Finland. read more

Gap between wealthy and poor pupils closing in wake of Michael GovesGap between wealthy and poor pupils closing in wake of Michael Goves

Michael Gove, the former education secretary, overhauled the curriculum Credit: Jack Taylor/Getty The latest data follows figures released earlier this year showing that 64 per cent of pupils reached the expected standard in 2018, up from 61 per cent in 2017.While the number of schools considered to be under-performing has decreased, 364 mainstream primaries in England fell below the primary school floor standard, meaning that 91,620 pupils are being taught at under-performing primaries, or 2.1 per cent of children at mainstream primary schools in England.The number of “coasting” schools – a measure which compares results over the past three years – has risen to 640, up from 524 last year and 477 in 2016. Michael Gove, the former education secretary, overhauled the curriculum  His flagship reforms were focused on breaking the link between social class and school achievement. They included a mandatory focus on phonics, learning poetry by heart, making languages compulsory, a focus on grammar, punctuation, spelling and the introduction of new, more rigorous tests.The reforms were met by fierce resistance from the teaching profession and the education unions, who warned about the pressure it would place on teachers and the increased workload. Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, cautioned that test  results were only part of a much broader picture when judging a school’s performance or a pupil’s success.“Successive governments have raised the stakes when it comes to SATs and league table,” he said.“Whilst the results have always carried a high level of importance, over time the pressure surrounding them has increased. One year’s dodgy data can make an effective school leader suddenly feel very vulnerable. A system built on this sort of fear is not a healthy one.” The achievement gap between the poorest primary school children and their wealthier peers has closed by the biggest margin in six years following a raft of rigorous reforms.This year, 51 per cent of children from poorer backgrounds reached the expected level in their national end-of-primary school tests, compared with 70 per cent of their better off peers, Government figures reveal.The gap, measured using the government’s disadvantage gap index, has shrunk by 13 per cent since 2011 and 3 per cent in the last year, the biggest change since 2012.Sir Anthony Seldon, vice chancellor of Buckingham University and former master of Wellington College, said the figures were a “genuine cause for celebration” and the result of greater academic rigour in primary schools–– ADVERTISEMENT ––He said: “The reforms that have come in are the policies that have gone on to help those from disadvantaged backgrounds to be more successful.“Now, we have to ensure that the gap continues to close.” Mark Lehain, director of Parents and Teachers for Excellence, agreed that the figures suggested that the reforms introduced by the Conservatives had made a “real difference”, especially to children from more deprived backgrounds.He added: “Some said that a focus on phonics and a more rigorous National Curriculum would be too much for children, but with the support of their hard-working teachers, they’ve shown that they are capable of far more than the sceptics thought.” The Department for Education has said the attainment of disadvantaged pupils – those in or formerly in care or eligible for free school meals – is a key aim of its policies.The schools that have the lowest gaps between disadvantaged pupils and their peers are in London, while the biggest gaps were in the south east, the east and the south west.Nick Gibb, the school standards minister, said: “Every child, regardless of their background, deserves a high quality education and opportunity to fulfil their potential.“Headteachers are using the freedoms afforded by academy and free school status to make this a reality, as illustrated by the progress disadvantaged pupils in multi-academy trusts are making in writing and maths.”Michael Gove, the former education secretary, is renowned for introducing a new, more challenging curriculum in 2014.

Most Robots Are StupidEasy to HackMost Robots Are StupidEasy to Hack

first_img Evan Rachel Wood Just As Disturbed by Humanoid Sophia As Everyone ElseCIMON Returns to Earth After 14 Months on ISS Here at Geek, we’ve been pretty consistent in our warnings of the coming cyber dystopia. And, today we’re gonna keep on keepin’ on. This time, new research suggests that hacking bots — which, remember will be coming for all our jobs in shorter order — is basically child’s play/ In a move that seems ripped straight from Black Mirror, a team of researchers cracked into a bot dubbed Herb2 from across the country to deliver an unsettling message: “Hello from the hackers.”Cool, COOL, cool. The research hasn’t been peer-reviewed, admittedly, but like many cybersecurity projects,  it’s also largely a demonstration of the concept. And the teams involved — based at Brown and the University of Washington — are both well-respected institutions. This is largely possible because, surprise surprise, many human beings take shortcuts when setting up their cool new artificial beings. Essentially, designing robots is hard, and many use an open-source collection of software called Robot Operating System, or ROS. Because this system lacks basic security features, is widely used, and the source code is free to probe, the teams were able to easily break into a bot. First, they simply used scanned for bots running ROS that were connected to the internet, and then they sorted those out from the research simulations also using the software. By determining if the bot had connected hardware, like a camera, they could be reasonably sure it was an actual robot, and not a bit of code mimicking one. Once that was set, they simply picked a bot, notified its owners that it wasn’t secure, and then asked for permission from the other team to hack it. “No one’s really thinking about security on these types of things,” computer scientist George Clark told Wired. “Everyone’s just putting things out there trying to rush to market, especially in a research type of environment. My worry is how this carries over to a more industrial or consumer market.”Indeed, many critical industrial systems like SCADA are already connected to the internet, and they’re one of the reasons we have those famous instances of people temporarily downing power grids or other basic services. This stuff isn’t a joke, and when bots get hooked up, we’re only magnifying the danger and introducing that many more ways for someone to take advantage of us and the machines we work with.If you love robots as much as we do read our review of Cozmo.

Video shows illegal cockfights at SW MiamiDade farm animal rights activists sayVideo shows illegal cockfights at SW MiamiDade farm animal rights activists say

first_imgSOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – Video recorded by members of an animal rights group that went undercover at a farm in Southwest Miami-Dade shows what they claim to be illegal cockfights.The blurry footage, shot by Animal Rescue Mission at Rancho El Triangulo, shows roosters fighting to the death as cheering spectators place their bets and referees judge the matches.Animal Rescue Mission spokesperson Richard Couto said this is a clear case of animal abuse.“Up to 50 illegal cockfights are conducted every Saturday. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are waged illegally on this property,” he said. “The losing birds, without being dead, are discarded in the trash.”Police were called out to the farm, located near Southwest 202nd Avenue and 216th Street, to investigate on Saturday.According to Animal Rescue Mission, an unspecified number of roosters were found, but since there was no concrete evidence of cockfighting, no arrests were made.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Facebook wants to make it easier to find gamesFacebook wants to make it easier to find games

first_imgFacebook’s gaming tab.  Facebook Facebook users who play games on the social network will soon have a quicker way to view such content. The social network said Thursday that it’s rolling out a gaming tab in the app’s navigation bar, which appears at the top of the screen for Android and the bottom for iPhones. The shortcut will pop up only for people who spend time playing games, viewing gaming videos or interacting in gaming groups. Currently, users can access the gaming tab, but they have to click on Facebook’s bookmarks menu and scroll through other icons to find it. Thursday’s move highlights how Facebook, which has been hit by a number of scandals, is trying to get users to spend more time on the social network. It’s also part of Facebook’s efforts to give users more control over what they see on the app. Last year, Facebook redesigned the app’s navigation bar to display personalized shortcuts for features people use the most. Those included the social network’s video hub, Watch, along with Groups and Marketplace, where users buy and sell stuff. More than 700 million Facebook users play games, watch gaming videos or post in gaming groups. The gaming tab in the app’s navigation bar will be released to tens of millions of people and then to others in the coming weeks, according to the company. Facebook looks at whether a user has played games, watched gaming videos or posted in gaming groups in the last 30 days to figure out whether the shortcut should pop up in the navigation bar. “As we learn from the community, we’ll test new experiences in the tab, add more types of gaming content, and improve our content recommendations over time,” Facebook’s vice president of gaming, Vijaye Raji, wrote in a blog post.The icon for the gaming tab looks like a blue cube made up of two puzzle pieces and also resembles the letter G. Facebook said the puzzle pieces are supposed to represent different gaming communities coming together in one place. Facebook’s most popular games include Ludo Club, Quiz Planet, OMG, Words With Friends, Word Blitz, Basketball FRVR, Jumpy Jumpy, and 4 Pics 1 Word.

New York Sues Exxon for Misleading Investors on Climate ChangeNew York Sues Exxon for Misleading Investors on Climate Change

first_img 00:00 /06:33 Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: New York’s attorney general filed a lawsuit against Exxon Mobil on Wednesday, alleging the Texas-based oil company misled investors about the impact climate change regulations have on its business.“Exxon has been one of the few companies that has done a fairly thorough job of explaining how they are planning for carbon regulations,”James Coleman, associate professor of law at Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law in Dallas, told Houston Matters. “What the New York Attorney General is saying is that in those explanations they did not give an accurate view of how they actually are making investment decisions.”The lawsuit, filed by Attorney General Barbara Underwood, states that while Exxon told investors it was accounting for stricter regulations of greenhouse gas emissions in its planning, internal documents show Exxon was actually accounting for much less than it claimed.Investors put their money and trust in Exxon. And Exxon assured them of the long-term value of their shares, claiming to be factoring in the risk of increasing climate change regulation into its business decisions. Our investigation found that Exxon often did no such thing.— NY AG Underwood (@NewYorkStateAG) October 24, 2018The suit comes after a three-year investigation by the New York attorney general’s office. The lawsuit seeks an order banning Exxon from continuing to misrepresent its practices in the area, as well as an award for damages.In a statement released Wednesday, Exxon Mobil called the investigation “tainted.” “These baseless allegations are a product of closed-door lobbying by special interests, political opportunism and the attorney general’s inability to admit that a three-year investigation has uncovered no wrongdoing,” the statement reads.Read our full statement regarding the New York Attorney General civil complaint.— ExxonMobil (@exxonmobil) October 24, 2018Coleman says many oil companies haven’t publicly addressed how they plan for climate change. “There are a lot of other companies who haven’t even said what they do with carbon pricing,” he said. “I think Exxon as the world’s biggest private oil company has a bit of a target on its back.”Coleman says he thinks the lawsuit will likely drag on for years. “To the extent that part of the goal is a political one, the longer you keep it in the news the better,” he said. “I’m not sure that New York has any interest in resolving it incredibly quickly.” Share Xlast_img read more

But no matter what that might’ve been, chances are you were reminded of the meal you just swallowed down.Food and video games have been intertwined since Pac-Man choked down his first power pellet, and as technology has improved, digital edibles have become more and more realistic (and shamelessly marketing-driven). Let’s set the table with an eleven-course meal of iconic video game foods from throughout the medium’s history, from appetizers to desserts.AdChoices广告Hidden CheeseNo fancy meal is complete without a cheese plate at the beginning to whet your diners’ appetites. And food always tastes better when you put forth an effort to get it. So let’s lay out the aperitif with Perfect Dark‘s hidden slices of Swiss cheese. Each level in Rare’s shooter has a single slice secreted away in an out-of-the-way place, and finding them gets the player nothing but a feeling of accomplishment. Once your dinner guests have hunted down all the cheese they’ll be ready for their meal.Hearty Wild GreensBreath Of The Wild pushed the Zelda envelope in a bunch of new directions, but the one that’s most relevant to this article is Link’s new interest in cooking. The green-clad elf boy can gather ingredients from all over Hyrule and use them to prepare a bunch of tasty dishes. Let’s officially start up our next Thanksgiving feast with a dish of Hearty Wild Greens, which temporarily increase our heart containers by four. We’re going to need that extra storage space for the food to follow.Wall MeatExploring a vampire’s castle can leave a Belmont feeling peckish, but those zombie waiters certainly aren’t serving meals. So what’s an enterprising vampire hunter to do? If you’re in the Castlevania series, whip any odd-looking walls and see if there’s delicious meat hiding inside. Castlevania‘s “Wall Meat” helped popularize the idea of edibles as health-restoring secrets in games, and nearly every title in the series has featured it. In some games it’s called “Werewolf Leg,” which sounds delicious.Sinner’s SandwichHeavily inspired by Twin Peaks, Deadly Premonition spends some of its time at the A&G Diner. One of the regulars there, Harry Stewart, has a special order that became one of the most iconic meals in video game history. Dubbed the “Sinner’s Sandwich,” it’s roast turkey with strawberry jam and breakfast cereal. Protagonist Francis York Morgan describes it as “self-inflicted punishment to atone for one’s sins,” but people who have made it in real life say it’s surprisingly tasty.Tomato RainHigh in lycopenes, tomatoes are an excellent addition to any meal, even if they’re not the most traditional for Thanksgiving. In Genesis classic ToeJam & Earl, though, they’re a potent offensive weapon against the earthlings trying to prevent your alien protagonists from regaining their essential funk. Picking up the Tomato Rain power-up causes the red fruits to fall willy-nilly from the sky, KOing anybody they hit. Sure, it’s a little messy of a preparation, but you can’t argue with the effects.Rainy Day Special Mega Beef Bowl ChallengeSticking with the rainy theme – because a good menu is consistent and clever – we go to Persona 4‘s Japan and the preferred order of Chie at the Chinese diner Aiya. Only served on days when there’s precipitation, the Rainy Day Special Mega Beef Bowl Challenge is a massive mountain of steak that your character fantasizes could serve as a “portal to the Meat Dimension.” To finish the meal, your understanding, knowledge, courage, and diligence stats all need to be maxed out – but then it’s free.Mr. EggBurgerTime is one of the most food-centric games of all time, chronicling diminutive chef Peter Pepper’s attempts to assemble multi-layered hamburgers while being pursued by a host of ambulatory edibles intent on his destruction. Our favorite out of the trio of enemies is Mr. Egg, a fried oeuf that is the most aggressive of them all. The only problem is that a fried egg makes a delicious addition to a hamburger, so when you collapse a burg around them you get bonus points for yumminess.HassyAll this food is great, but you’re going to need something to wash it down with. Our pick is Hassy, the imaginary beverage that first appeared in cult Dreamcast game Blue Stinger. We’re not 100% sure what Hassy tastes like, but subsequent appearances in games like Illbleed indicate that it not only comes in a variety of flavors but also restores your health to full after downing a can. It’s important to hydrate, especially if you overcooked your turkey, so crack a Hassy and let’s get on with the meal.Lamb ChopsThe biggest surprise from Final Fantasy XV has to have been the food. Supporting character Ignis can learn 103 different recipes and cook them to give your party a number of stat boosts, and each of those dishes was painstakingly modeled and textured based on real dishes cooked in the rough by Squaresoft staffers. That attention to detail resulted in some of the most appetizing grub in video game history. It looks good enough to eat. Picking just one dish from Ignis’s repertoire is an impossible task, so let’s go with these tender lamb chops.Sweet RollsA tremendous amount of the fun in Skyrim comes from the absurdly detailed world it takes place in, full of knick-knacks and stuff. Even the most minor thing can turn into a meme. Case in point: the sweet roll. Bethesda has been using this pastry as a running gag since Daggerfall, starting with that game’s character creation. It became edible in Oblivion, and in Skyrim guards will sometimes tease you about somebody stealing your sweetroll. Oh, and of course you can use the game’s console to span thousands of them and gorge yourself sick.Mississippi Quantum PieWhen you’re scratching your way through the wastelands in the Fallout series, it’s hard to make time for dessert. But if you complete a pair of quests for Sierra Petrovita in Fallout 3 and then ask her about her recipes, you can chow down on a sweet treat called Mississippi Quantum Pie. Made with flour, Nuka-Kola Quantum and vodka, it boosts your strength and action points for four minutes when you eat it. The perfect finish to a video game Thanksgiving before you go mutant hunting.last_img read more
