The release of Overwatch 2 is closer than ever, bringing you new heroes and a revamped battle pass – but when exactly can you start playing? A lot of changes will come along with Overwatch 2, especially since the game will now be mostly free-to-play, and you’ll be able to see everything that’s new in just a few hours. Whether you’re a new or a returning player, you can get a head start and pre-install the game , so you can immediately start playing when it unlocks. After all it’s a beefy 30 to 50GB download, depending on if you’re a PC or console player. Blizzard has confirmed the official launch time for Overwatch 2, although you might get it a day late, due to different time zones. As always, you should take this information with a grain of salt, as a lot of things can go wrong that could delay the launch, such as problems with the servers. One thing is for sure though… Overwatch 2 is supposed to arrive on Tuesday, October 4. The dawn of the new era will … [Read more...] about When does Overwatch 2 go live?

A conversation between a recruiter and a candidate for a job has gone viral after screenshots of it were shared online, sparking a debate over salary secrecy during the recruiting process. Taking to Reddit , the candidate expressed their frustration at the fact that some recruiters go out of their way to avoid mentioning the salary range for the job they're hiring for, even after being asked multiple times. In the post, the candidate, who goes by the username Reddrick, shares screenshots detailing their conversation with the recruiter, with a caption that says: "I'm tired of recruiters avoiding my questions and playing dumb." The post has received more than 14,600 upvotes and over a 1000 comments since yesterday. From the screenshot it's clear that the recruiter tried to avoid giving straight answers to Reddrick's questions about salary , and instead asked them what their expectations were, to which Reddrick answered: "My expectations are that you will provide a salary … [Read more...] about Job Candidate Praised Over Response to Recruiter Dodging Salary Question
I n June 2014 , Aleksandra Krylova and Anna Bogacheva arrived in the United States on a clandestine mission. Krylova was a high-ranking official at the Internet Research Agency in St. Petersburg, Russia, an ostensibly private company that was connected with Russian intelligence. Bogacheva, her road buddy, a researcher and data cruncher, was more junior. Their trip had been well plotted: a transcontinental itinerary, SIM cards, burner phones, cameras, visas obtained under the pretense of personal travel, and, just in case, evacuation plans. The women made stops in California, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, and Texas, according to a federal indictment issued years later. Beyond that, their activities are not well known. Their mission, however, is now public knowledge: to gather evidence of conditions in the United States for a project to destabilize its political system and society, using the rather improbable weapon of millions of social-media … [Read more...] about What Russian Trolls Can Teach Us About American Voters
Radiohead’s music often works like a puzzle, and it’s not clear whether many people ever solved the one posed by their 2011 album, The King of Limbs , whose funereal swirl only fleetingly provided the beauty and pop payoff that defined the band’s previous work. Today’s new Radiohead song, “Burn the Witch,” blessedly does not hide its power. Sonically novel yet viscerally moving, gorgeous yet terrifying, it is the sound of Radiohead returning to do what it exists to do. The video is a claymation retelling of The Wicker Man , in which a police officer arrives at a town that is—spoiler alert!—secretly preparing to burn him in a ritual sacrifice. Thom Yorke’s lyrics speak of the kind of mass action and complacency that allows such a crime and, the logic probably goes, many other cruelties committed by societies. It’s an orchestral pop song, but the orchestra is taking cues from heavy metal, chugga-chugga-chugga-ing the entire time. No wonder: A room full instruments acting … [Read more...] about Radiohead’s ‘Burn the Witch’ Is Gloriously Gorgeous and Scary
Dear Newsweek, We have an adult daughter, 29 years old. We also have a 30 years old daughter; she does not live at home and does very well on her own. The 29-year-old does live at home and we are ready for her to move out. The problem is she cannot move out due to financial constraints. She got into credit card trouble and is now working with a consolidation loan to pay them off. She also has a car payment and a horse that she pays [veterinary] bills, etc for; however, we pay the board for the horse monthly at considerable rates. She also wastes her money on frivolous things such as Amazon shopping, dining out, etc... We have tried helping her with a budget, tracking expenses, etc. But nothing seems to work for long. She has about another 2 years until her car and consolidation loan are paid off. She needs to get out so she can see how the real world works and get her own sense of being sooner than later! What should we do? Dave & Erika, Minnesota You Are … [Read more...] about Our Adult Daughter Won’t Leave Home—What Should I Do?
T ory Party Conference latest: Kwasi Kwarteng brushes off "a little turbulence" from mini-Budget Bank of England monitors Credit Suisse amid market turbulence FTSE 100 closes up slightly 1pc; Pound gains to $1.13 Roger Bootle: It will spark strikes and protests, but public sector pay has to fall Sign up here for our daily business briefing newsletter The Government’s U-turn on tax cuts may not protect the UK from a credit rating downgrade, S&P Global has warned. Maxim Rybnikov, an analyst at the rating agency, said the move wouldn’t materially affect fiscal and economic projections made last week. S&P downgraded its outlook on the UK’s AA credit rating from stable to negative in the wake of Kwasi Kwarteng’s tax-cutting fiscal plans. It forecast that the government deficit will widen by an average 2.6pc of GDP annually to 2025, while net general government debt will continue on an upward trajectory. Mr Rybnikov said the bulk of the … [Read more...] about Climbdown on 45pc tax doesn’t change ‘negative’ outlook for UK, warns S&P
Was there really a need for Overwatch 2? That’s the big question, and even after playing the game the answer is still not clear. It’s six years since the launch of the original Overwatch, so in normal circumstances a sequel would seem overdue at this point. That’s not generally how live service games work though and even when they announced it, developer Blizzard made it clear this isn’t a normal sequel. Exactly what it is though has been frequently unclear in the run up to its launch, but now finally we’ve had a chance to play it… sort of. Although it has a number at the end of its name this really isn’t a sequel in the traditional sense, but a continuation of the same game with a lot of the same characters, maps, and mechanics. The existing characters are all included and while most have had major overhauls the differences still aren’t significant enough that they couldn’t just have been part of the first game. Having said that, the redesigns do bring a certain … [Read more...] about Overwatch 2 first impressions – hands-on with early access
SIR – Is the Conservative Party looking forward to a Labour government? That’s what will happen unless it gets behind the Prime Minister and supports the mini-Budget. The PM’s approach is the right one, and is the change in direction the country needs. Labour supporters and those still annoyed by Brexit will not be happy until the Conservatives are driven from office. But I did not expect Tory MPs to be leading the pack. Richard Moores SIR – I am no supporter of Liz Truss, but note that the present calls for her to stand down seem to be based purely on what might happen as a result of her policies. The previous calls for Boris Johnson to resign were at least based on what he’d actually done. John Godfrey SIR – How many more knives does the Conservative MP for Surrey Heath have in his possession ( “Michael Gove hints he could vote against Liz Truss’s 45p tax cut”, report, October 2 ) ? Janet Milliken SIR – There is little doubt that, had Prime Minister Liz … [Read more...] about Letters: Tories must get behind their leader if they don’t want to let Labour in
It is hardly the backdrop Liz Truss might have hoped for as she sits down for her first newspaper interview as Prime Minister. With polls putting the Conservatives as many as 33 points behind Labour and figures from across the political spectrum lining up to denounce Ms Truss’s tax-cutting plans, she is effectively under siege less than 30 days after entering 10 Downing Street. But the extent of the onslaught does not appear to come as a great surprise to the Prime Minister, who has spent more than a decade preparing for this moment. “Often, I think, people feel politicians talk, and they don’t necessarily ‘do’. I’m very focused on doing, and getting these changes happening in the British economy, enabling people to keep more of their own money, keeping bills low,” she says. “I campaigned on this basis in the leadership election campaign, I said I would do these things. And I’m determined to follow through on things because I see that this is what will make Britain more … [Read more...] about Liz Truss: ‘We have to change – the status quo isn’t an option’
