  1. Incoming

    Incoming is a 3D shooter developed by Rage Software and published by Interplay. The game was first released for the PC in late 1998, and was followed by a Sega Dreamcast version, which was released in Japan on December 17, 1998, in Europe on October 14, 1999, and in North America on November 30, 1999. Set in the near-future of 2009, the game primarily revolves around controlling vehicles and turrets to fight alien invaders of Earth in one of the Campaign modes, the Arcade mode, and with or against another player. Some levels include brief real-time strategy segments. Praised for its then-advanced graphics and sound, the game was generally well-received on the PC, though the critical response was less positive for the Dreamcast version. A sequel entitled Incoming Forces was released in 2002 exclusively for the PC. An arcade version of the game, utilising a unique hardware interface, was released in 2003.

  4. Will Trump:

    The incoming administration will take office just as the latest ObamaCare enrollment tally comes in, delivering a potentially crucial verdict about the still-shaky healthcare marketplaces …. The Obama administration has struggled for several years to bring young, healthy people into the marketplaces, which is needed to offset the medical costs of older and sicker customers. These problems are coming to light this year, as insurers get their first full look at ObamaCare customer data. Some, like UnitedHealth Group, say they’ve seen enough, and are already vowing to leave the exchanges …. experts warn that if the numbers don’t improve this year, more insurers could bolt. That would deal a major blow to marketplace competition, while also driving up rates and keeping even more people out of the exchanges.

The challenge is we’re at a time when Generation Z and millennials are far more sensitive about issues about equality and how people are treated, and especially how males conduct themselves.
