As the player is placing letters are new words to fill in lines above. The characters Bloob Bleeb and also part of the game. Bleeb is an ally at first light circles indicates where to place the letters. It also provides wings to slow the decline of letters and more time to complete the items. Furthermore, the evil Bloob impedes the progress of the game by bubbles filled with: fog, smoke, ink, bombs, mines or resonance. These obstacles are overcome by their own specific functions some consoles but are new to mobile gaming. For example, to remove the smoke screen needed physically blow into the microphone of the device.

 Each screen has a different background design. These have worked individually by artisans with devices that simulate the drawing on paper, and their creators is like a little piece of art. Each fund represents a place in the world, easily identifiable. There are 15 designs in total, each with animations, music aesthetics and characteristics of the country or region they represent.

Bubblis is available for iOS and Android to USD 1.99.

Science: Revive a mammoth is possible.

Science: Revive a mammoth is possible.

This is not science fiction. The cloning of an animal it is possible and, oddly controversial, revive a mammoth species extinct for 4500 years is considered a scientifically viable project.

The investigator and veterinarian Hwang Woo-suk, stem cell specialist, leads the initiative.

Through an agreement with the Federal University Northeastern Russia, South Korean scientists Sooamd Research Foundation will attempt to clone a woolly mammoth through their tissue samples with eggs from a current Indian elephant.

After applying the cell nuclear transfer process, common step in the process of cloning, the egg is implanted in the uterus of a live elephant, the mammoth  gestates for 22 months.

The agreement with the Russian university comes six months after the two sides signed an initial pact for South Korean researchers could use the samples taken from mammoth remains found in the glaciers of the Sakha Republic in the Russian Federation. Hwang Woo-suk was once considered a pioneer in the field of stem cells to clone a dog in 2005.

Experts believe that it is possible to clone a mammoth, since prehistoric animal cells that can be found both in the blood and internal organs such as the skin and bones. A César Paz y Mino, academic and geneticist, not surprised with this possibility. "The mammoth cloning is possible because the animal is found male and female Indian elephant is. The egg is always more important than sperm. "

Although for Eugenia del Pino, director of the Laboratory of Developmental Biology at the Catholic University of Quito,Ecuador this type of cloning has already been made with live animals, the mammoth and the elephant, even if they have close relationship, are different species.

 Paz y Mino holds that in any case, after cloning animals will try to play to achieve purification of information. However, from a hybrid gene never achieve a 100% pure. What is the desire to clone a mammoth? "There's always the hope of resurrecting an extinct species," said Del Pino, who in his role as biologist would see again the kind of Lonesome George, of the Pinta Island.

She is aware that science has advanced, but the project certainly stem cell specialist because previous attempts have falsified evidence to confirm their novel theories about human cloning.

 In 2009, a Seoul court sentenced him to two years in prison for falsification of genetic data and use public funds for their scientific projects. Additionally, the hypothetical cloning could affect the environment. "It is best to protect our planet, with its plant and animal species. You have to let the mammoths as beings of the past, "adds the researcher. Geneticist Ecuadorian emphasizes that cloning projects are also ethical questions. 

"Why do not respect the essence of the animal species?, Do we need to relive?" Asks Paz y Mino. "While it is true that doing so violates the essence of the species, the scientific whim always wanted to demonstrate their ability and progress."

The chronology:

1996 Dolly the sheep was the first mammal cloned from an adult cell. Ryuzo Yanagimachi 1997 The researcher cloned 22 mice alive, with good parenting. 2000 In Scotland also made history and controversy when the first cloned pigs. 2001 On this date, the American researcher Mark Westhusin Copycat created. 2002 cats were obtained and cloned and genetically modified to glow under ultraviolet light. 2003 Futi was created thanks to the DNA of a cow with a record in milk production. 2006 The researcher Hwang Woo-suk cloned the first dog, an Afghan named Snyppy. 2009 In Camel Reproduction Centre in Dubai for the first time cloned a camel. Got 2010 was the first cloned fighting bull in Spain. With it opened the possibility of creating a tissue bank. 2012 The Research Foundation Sooamd Federal University in Seoul and Northeast of Russia initiated a project to clone a mammoth with an Indian elephant.

Ecuador: Montañita will host World surf tournament 2013.

Surfing- Montañita

Ecuador: Montañita will host World surf tournament 2013.

The International Surfing Association (ISA) confirmed, after agreement with the Ministry of Sports of Ecuador, Montañita Beach mainland will host the Senior World Surfing the 2013 season.

The signing took place during the World Cup that takes place in Playa Colorado, Nicaragua, from 14 to 22 July, and which the Ecuadorian delegation participates.

"We believe this is the way to encourage this sport. The advantage of surfing is that the court is always ready for the sea in Ecuador is ideal for this activity.

Samsung to spread Music Hub pre-installed in a bunch of other Samsung devices.

Samsung to spread Music Hub pre-installed in a bunch of other Samsung devices.

"One of the great advantages we have over our rivals is that Music Hub is pre-installed in our flagship product and will be available later in a bunch of other Samsung devices," said Kang, who developed the Hangul 2000 software, a Korean equivalent of Microsoft's Word processor, and was poached from mobile operator KT Corp in 2010.

Music Hub, available on Samsung's Galaxy S III smartphones in the United States and several European markets, combines all the key available music service options on a single platform - offering paid digital downloads like iTunes, a personalized radio service like Pandora, music upload to cloud like iTunes Match and Cloud Player. Users can access a catalogue of over 19 million songs - including the Korean hit 'Gangnam Style' that has taken the pop world by storm and topped iTune's download charts - and stream seamlessly to mobile devices. Apple says its iTunes Store has more than 28 million songs.

"Amazon, Google and Apple should really take note of Music Hub's radio service," Billboard said recently. "Whether or not the service is good, great or equal to something like Pandora really isn't the point. What's important is that Samsung has put the most mainstream of music products (radio) with less mainstream music products (downloads, cloud storage)," it said.

The toughest challenge is to turn around consumer perception that Samsung is only good at hardware, and to add killer apps to bind consumers to their Samsung devices.

"Pre-installing Music Hub on the Galaxy is powerful, but not enough," said Kang, adding there be more aggressive promotions, including month-long free trials and give-away albums.

That will put the squeeze more firmly on Pandora, Spotify and other online music firms that lose money as they depend on paid subscriptions and advertising but have no hardware to sell.

"We have an internal target to break even in software. But, in general, selling content won't make much of a contribution to the bottom line. We see other new business opportunities associated with content," Kang said.

Samsung plans to have Music Hub working on a range of consumer devices - from smartphones to Internet-enabled TVs and fridges - and is likely to ultimately want to monetize it by hooking up with an ad platform.

"We're preparing new services for launch early next year. With these offerings, people will start to think Samsung is good in software, too," said Kang, declining to elaborate on those launches.

Finally the webOS Open roadmap is accomplished with the release of the  1.0 Edition today.

Some enhancements will follow: Qt5 / WebKit2, Open sourced media and audio components, BlueZ Bluetooth stack,ConnMan network management and  Optimized SysMgr rendering architecture.

What is saying the webOS Open project team, right here below:

Open webOS 1.0 Edition.

Today is a great day for Open webOS. We have completed our initial roadmap and are releasing Open webOS 1.0 on schedule, as promised.

Our combined efforts with the community and hard work have paid off, and we are now ready to move on to the next phase together. With this release we have affirmed our commitment to meet our goals and create a vibrant open source community.

What 1.0 contains
We now have an OpenEmbedded build that allows a full webOS experience running inside an OE emulator. We have added core applications — email & browser — while continuing to support the desktop build environment.

The 1.0 release also brings support for Enyo2. You can now take apps built on one of the best cross-platform JavaScript frameworks and easily run these same apps on Open webOS or other platforms.
In the past 9 months, we have delivered over 75 Open webOS components. This totals over 450,000 lines of code. (Can I get a hell yeah!). The source code for Open webOS can be found in Open webOS repositories on GitHub.

What 1.0 means
Combining today’s components with those from the previous releases, Open webOS can now be ported to new devices. 

We expect to have more Open webOS port announcements in the future and will work with the community to deliver updates here.

The future
We will continue to innovate and develop for Open webOS over the coming months, including the following planned enhancements:

·         Qt5 / WebKit2
·         Open sourced media and audio components
·         BlueZ Bluetooth stack
·         ConnMan network management
·         Optimized SysMgr rendering architecture

Come join in the chatter on our mailing list and forums; your collaboration is encouraged.

Community activity
Last month’s Beta release delivered collaboration tools for community members. Today’s 1.0 release includes new forums, and our project infrastructure now includes an integrated login across the website, forums, and the JIRA bug tracker.

The 1.0 launch includes contributions by expert community members made after the beta release.  These contain bug fixes, resolution of dependencies, and substantive commentary which guided our decisions on code structure and other issues.  Across the repos, the bug tracker and the mailing lists community members are helping each other.

The webOS-Ports team also continues to enhance the user experience on LunaCE with their latest release which includes shortcuts, bug fixes and several user-facing feature additions such as gesture-based app switching and improved card stack management. 

Thank you
Today is a day to celebrate our engineers. Martin Risau, our SVP, said that he was, “proud that we did what we said we would do in January. This achievement gives us the credibility to execute our future plans.”

Together, with the open source community, we have achieved great results over the last few months. Both internal and external engineers have put a lot of time and effort into getting us to where we are today, and they deserve a lot of credit.

Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation, echoed the importance of reaching this benchmark:
“By using the build framework for embedded Linux, the Yocto Project with OpenEmbedded-Core, Open webOS is poised to deliver an open source build environment that developers will thrive from. Open webOS continues to hit its milestones, and we expect the community around the project to continue to grow. All the right tools are in place.”

As we strive to make Open webOS an open platform of choice, we are excited to continue working with a great community whose members continue to amaze us with their innovation and creativity.

That’s all for now folks. See you on the Interweb and at community events.

Texting? You should know these 20 text abbreviations.

WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesùs.

Texting? You should know these 20 text abbreviations.

More people use text messaging to communicate then ever before. You can’t go anywhere (a bus, a restaurant, a meeting…anywhere) without seeing someone staring down at their phone frantically two-thumb typing away.

In order to save on typing out every single word, a new shorthand language has developed. There are single letters, number and symbols (b=be, 2=to, @=at). You can use by themselves, in combination with other letters (called logograms like, b4=before, 2day=today) or you can use pictograms ( :-)=smile, ;-)=wink, :-@=scream) to represent words.

There are thousands of these new text abbreviations being used and created every single day. Here are 20 to get you started:

^5 – High Five
YSK – You Should Know
YBS – You’ll Be Sorry
WOTAM  – Waste Of Time And Money
WOG – Wise Old Guy
TY - Thank You
TISC – This Is So Cool
TISL – This Is So Lame
TAW – Teachers Are Watching
RUNTS – Are You Nuts?
OTOH – On The Other Hand
I 1-D-R – I Wonder
FOMCL – Falling Off My Chair Laughing
DUNA – Don’t Use No Acronyms
COS – Change Of Subject
AYOR – At Your Own Risk
303 – Mom
143 – I love you
1432 – I Love You Too
*$ – Starbucks

Which of these do you think will make it into our everyday language?
