wa elections: micro parties playing the majors at their own game

A group of well-disciplined micro parties might be on track to change the face of West Australian politics. There is a record number of micro parties contesting Western Australia’s March election and thanks to a preference deal they could make an impact in a tight race.Most of the micro parties are directing preferences to each other in the state’s upper house.It could lead to three being elected with just a fraction of the primary vote.The deal has been brokered by so-called preference whisperer Glenn Druery who helped get the Australian Motoring Enthusiasts Party’s Ricky Muir elected to the senate in 2013 with a primary vote of just 0.51 per cent.“Multi-party democracy is a good thing for the community and diversity of voices is a wonderful thing,” Mr Druery said.“Who wants party hacks,

the roots on how 'evolution of greatness' nba all-star musical came together

Before the Western and Eastern conferences duked it out at the 2017 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, The Roots delivered an entertaining-yet-educational introduction with a basketball-themed musical titled The Evolution of Greatness. Tapping Jidenna, actor Michael B. Jordan, Hamilton star Daveed Diggs, DJ Jazzy Jeff and iconic hip-hop duo Run-D.M.C.'s Darryl McDaniels, the star-studded production paid tribute to every generation of the NBA, calling out the simplicity, style and superstardom in each.According to Tariq Trotter, more popularly known as Black Thought of The Roots, the idea was pitched two years ago when NBA All-Star Weekend landed in New York City, but the timing wasn't right for both parties. "The NBA came back to us this year, and it worked out," he tells Billboard. For Mardi Gr

athens expects tensions with ankara to last until 2019 turkish elections | news

Athens is reportedly preparing – on a political, economic and military level – for a standoff with Ankara that could last up to two years, as the government says the recent spike in Turkish provocations is part of a plan to bring its claims in the Aegean Sea back to the fore.Greek and foreign analysts say that the harsh rhetoric coming from Turkey is directly linked to the upcoming referendum on April 16 on whether to expand the powers of the president.Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has tried to woo voters by playing the nationalist card. The stakes couldn’t be higher for Erdogan, as a no vote could plunge the neighboring country into an even deeper crisis.However, it is believed that the provocations are driven by more than just a populist effort to appeal to a domestic audience,

the nba hopes vr will expand its audience

When asked if watching in VR could end up distracting people from the game, Rogondino said he believes it's more like peeling another layer for the viewer. "Did people feel it was distracting when the game, or whatever they were watching, went from black and white to color?" he asked. "All of a sudden they were like, 'Oh my gosh, those flowers in the corner are so much more vivid than I ever thought they were.' Then eventually, over time, you adjust to watching that and if you ever went to black and white you would think, 'Oh my God. This is archaic.'"There are some downsides to the tech, though. For one, don't expect to watch games in high resolution with a VR headset, though that could change later on as VR production cameras improve. The other thing is, can your brain really handle a tw

'halo' will bring back local multiplayer

"We've also had a lot of learnings along the way," she continued. "You know when we fell down with the multiplayer launch of [Halo: The Master Chief Collection], or when we didn't put split-screen in with Halo 5. I think it's incredibly painful for the community, as the community is part of our world building."Beyond that Ross addressed the sloppy ways 343 has handled story in the games. And it doesn't sound too promising if you'd rather not have to read the myriad novels, comic books or watch web videos just to understand what the hell's going on with the narrative before playing the latest Halo."While we love our transmedia, sometimes I do think we tell a bit too much story in our games," she said. "You know when you have a gun and aliens shooting at you, it is kind of hard to digest a l

cong non-committal on backing sena; goes in wait and watch mode

With elections to BMC throwing up a fractured verdict, thinking is strong in Maharashtra Congress that it should consider the option of enabling the Shiv Sena to foist its candidate as mayor of the civic body. The Congress, which managed to secure only 31 seats in the 227-member House, however, is unlikely to rush to a decision, preferring to wait till the crucial elections to the five states are over.The tally of Shiv Sena, which emerged as the single largest party after the counting on Thursday, has risen to 87 corporators with three party rebels who won as Independent nominees returning to its fold yesterday. This gave a slight push to Uddhav Thackeray's efforts to cobble up numbers but reaching the magic figure of 114 seats needed to rule the crucial civic body is still a far cry. He h

game day: evergrow – macstories

Many of the best games I've played on iOS recently remix elements of existing genres in new and unexpected ways. Evergrow by Imagility does just that, mixing puzzle, action, and tower defense elements into a fun, colorful game that keeps things interesting by throwing new details at you throughout the game.You control a cheerful block floating through space. The goal is to grow your character as big as possible by dragging other squares of the same color that float by into position, so they attach to your original block. If a different colored square approaches, you need to swipe it away before it collides with you and causes damage.Color matching forms the foundation of Evergrow, but there a lot more going on in the game. The physics of the squares adds a layer of complication and weight

everything you don't want to know about the nintendo switch

It does almost nothing out of the boxIf you bought a Nintendo Wii, Wii U or any of the company's portable 3DS systems, you had something to play right away. Wii Sports, Nintendo Land and the 3DS' AR games served as ambassadors to the new consoles, using games as a medium to teach new owners everything they needed to know about their new hardware. These were fun, contained experiences that added value to every console sold. The Nintendo Switch has nothing like that. According to early previews, leaks and reports, all a new Switch owner can do without buying a game is navigate a few menus, change the user interface's theme and make Nintendo Mii avatars -- and even that meager experience is hidden in the console's settings menu.There's no backward compatibilityIf previous Nintendo consoles ha

MID-AIR GREY AREAACT Brumbies winger James Dargaville had his eyes on the ball and would have caught it, too, had Israel Dagg not leapt over the top of him in Christchurch on Saturday night.
James Dargaville of the Brumbies is wrapped up by the Blues defence. Photo: GettyBut a controversial grey area with mid-air collisions cost the Brumbies dearly as they lost to the Canterbury Crusaders 17-13.Dargaville was given a yellow card after Dagg's legs were taken from underneath him and the Crusaders centurion landed awkwardly.It's clear Dargaville was playing the ball and didn't know where Dagg was before they collided. But does an accidentally clash deserve a yellow card and 10 minutes in the sin bin?The moment changed the game, although both teams had plenty more opportunities after the fir

juice up your phablet elegantly

We all know that iPhone 7 Plus has got an hour of extra battery life as compared to its predecessor. However, the battery of 5.5-inch phablet can't last too long if you indulge in playing some of the most power-sucking games or use the device extensively.
