Comment half a million horseshoe crabs are captured (Score 1) 159

Quoting the article: "Each year, half a million horseshoe crabs are captured and bled alive" I think this makes them far from endangered although that is quite a lot of crabs to be caught by one company. Good riddance I say! Who wants a giant shelled scorpion spider crawling in our shallow waters anyway?

Comment Women in Esports are there (Score 1) 320

Women in ESports are still making their mark on the scene. Early on it was just Tossgirl the first female pro to compete in all male leagues for Starcraft one. Along with her coach January coached one of the first Starcraft teams. And now Starcraft 2 is making head way for females in competitive gaming. "Ladies of the Swarm", http://wiki.teamliquid.net/sta... , is a great tournament run by all women and has a pretty decent prizepool too. While females in competitive gaming is trailing behind there is no lack of involvement. The best interviewers, translators, and hosts for major Starcraft events are run by ladies. They all do a great job too and it has been a pleasure to meet many of them. Other then this being a slew of statistics, it doesn't really show anything new in the article or attempt to suggest solutions to this "problem." Females, whether gamers or ESports entertainers, get their opportunities as equally as men do. And in fact they are welcomed with open arms from the Starcraft community. And if it means anything, one of the top non-Korean progamers is a female.
