Three of those companies were located in the US, two were from Poland, and one was based in the UK, but no further details about the companies were shared.Bloober Team’s most recent title, The Medium, launched in January after a delay. It recouped its production and marketing costs within a day of release.last_img read more

first_imgThe SM North band getting ready to perform in San Diego.Years from now it’s likely the SM North Marching Band will look back on their high school years and remember this exact week.While most students are on holiday break the band is on an eight-day, seven-night trip to San Diego and Los Angeles, where they are wrapping up a series of performances.They marched with hundreds of other students in the Holiday Bowl, the Big Bay Balloon Parade and, come Wednesday, they will march on the streets of Disneyland.SM North Marching Band Director Chad Reed said he expects the experience will be something his students remember forever.“I wish I could describe the faces of those kids when they walked through the tunnel of Qualcomm Stadium for the first time getting ready to perform for the Holiday Bowl. They were just absolutely blown away,” Reed said.The band director said he hasn’t had to check the weather back home often. Several students have given him regular updates as they soak up the sunlight and warmer weather. “They love the weather,” Reed said. “It was fun to see the kids step off the plane and over half of them had never actually seen a palm tree. And they get off the plane and it is 60 degrees and there are palm trees everywhere.”The group includes 108 students and 24 adults. Most of them flew to San Diego at 7 a.m. Dec. 26 arriving just in time for the parade. They will return Jan. 2, well before classes resume after the holiday. However two parents, John Wessling and Katie Bower, had to set out early. The couple left SM North high school on Dec. 22 in a Penske truck loaded with band uniforms and equipment. They will drive it back this week logging thousands of miles before the trip is complete.The students have already visited several sites during the trip including the San Diego Zoo, Seaworld and Seaport Village. Before leaving they’ll also visit Hollywood and Venice Beach.And they still have one last marching performance.On New Year’s Eve the band will march in a noon parade through the streets of Disneyland. After the performance, the students will hang up their uniforms and enjoy the park.“We’ll be done about 4 p.m. and then we let the kids close the park down. They get to be there until about 2 a.m. in the morning. They usher in the New Year with a huge fireworks display at Disneyland,” Reed said. “It is so much fun to see those kids participate in that.”last_img read more

first_imgROAD RUNNING: THE good folk of Port Moresby Road Runners were asked recently what their favourite running venue is. They have been voting with their feet and the declaration of the poll was made on Saturday afternoon. The winner is, by a country mile, the University of Papua New Guinea. The Waigani campus has held the record for the biggest number of participants since 10 February 2001 when 78 hardy souls turned out. The Holiday Inn came close to the record two weeks ago when 76 rolled up. But the University smashed its own record on Saturday afternoon when 94 runners and walkers, including many in the “Liklik” (under 12 years of age) category, relished the coolish, breezy, traffic-free, quiet and peaceful conditions on offer. Old timers will say that there were occasions in the 1980s when the century mark was beaten. Yes, that’s a good story but where are the records to prove it? They are still looking for them. Fifty-one completed the 2.8-km course, led home in grand style by the fleet-footed youngster Joshua John in 11 minutes and 39 seconds. This boy is still on a sharp improvement curve. He won the same race at this venue in January, in 12.29, so he has gone 50 seconds faster this time around. Speaking of improvement, no one can go past young Falyn Buda who won the female category of the 5.6-km race, finishing in outright eighth place in a field of 34, in 29.27. Skene Kiage ran so fast in the long race, over 11.2 km, that he got home quicker, in 47.42, than the last half-dozen 5.6-km finishers. And he won, of course, beating eight other diehards who edged the score towards 100, before Henry Horou brought the proceedings to a close in the soft and soothing dusk in 98.44. Next Saturday the action is on again, at another popular venue: Ela Beach, where three events of similar distance will be conducted.last_img read more
