Antbassador is a ridiculous and fun QWOP-like adventure where you control a human finger as it makes it’s way through an ant colony, assisting them, befriending them and trying your utmost not to squash them!
As you might expect form some of the minds behind Octodad, the charming humor and rather clumsy control scheme in Antbassador are what make the game.  All arm movement is controlled via the mouse, while left clicking curls your finger.  After a little practice it’s possible to perform some pretty intricate tasks (but you’re bound to squash a few ants on your way).
A full playthrough of Antbassador takes around 5 minutes (we’d love to see this expanded on), and during it’s short playtime it delights with it’s ridiculous premise, charming visual style and wit.  A huge thumbs up for this fiendishly fun finger adventure.

Warner just announced a bunch of new DC movies including Aquaman coming in 2018. That’s a long way away, so I’m asking the writers of that film now, please, please include a scene like the one in the Aquaman movie in Entourage. Please. You’re doing yourself and your audience a disservice if you don’t.

Here’s what was just announced:

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
  • Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer (2016) 
  • Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot (2017)
  • Justice League Part One directed by Snyder, with Ben AffleckHenry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
  • The Flash starring Ezra Miller (2018)
  • Aquaman starring Jason Momoa (2018)
  • Shazam (2019)

3 Girls Won The Google Science Fair With A Bacteria-Based Plan To Solve The Food Crisis
Three young girls won the Google science fair on Sept. 22 with their innovative way to feed the world: treat plants with bacteria to help farmers grow more food, faster — without genetic modification.
"By the year 2050 we actually need 50 percent more food just to feed everyone," Emer Hickey, one of the three winners, told Scientific American.
Hickey worked with her classmates Ciara Judge and Sophie Healy on their project. The three teenage girls, who live in Ireland, were simultaneously learning about plants and world hunger. Their project “Combating the global food crisis: Diazotroph Bacteria As a Cereal Crop Growth Promoter" aims to tackle issues of world hunger by exploiting a curious relationship they found between bacteria and certain plants.
Beneficial Bacteria
After 11 months of hard work and dedication, the three teen microbiologists discovered that they could make crops yield more food and shorten the time it takes a plant to sprout from a seed — a process called germination. They shorten this time by infecting the crops with a bit of bacteria that’s been known to be advantageous to other crop plants.
Their results have huge implications for increasing agricultural productivity and easing world hunger.
The key to their success is a type of bacteria called rhizobia, which lives inside nodules, or the little nubs you sometimes see on plant roots. While we usually think of bacteria as dangerous, these are actually helpful to the plants. By converting nitrogen from the air into helpful compounds like ammonia, the bacteria aid plant growth.
