“This scene is so ominous, bleak, and soul crushing, it fits great into the Gears universe.”—Epic Team Judges
“This is a great moody introduction to Gears for people who don’t know what it’s about. It’s also a satisfying amalgamation of the elements many Gears players love from the series. It’s well painted, uses a great palette and it just invites you in to the fictional world of the game. It’s also got a great sense of realism to it, more of a matte painter sensibility which complements the Gears artstyle.”—Epic Team Judges
“Very nice piece, could fit right into the GOW world. Feels like one of our concept pieces”—Epic Team Judges
“Looks not at all unlike concept art from the game.”—Epic Team Judges
“Overall, just a great composition. Lighting is breathtaking.”—Epic Team Judges

Peter Tosh, an original member of the Wailers and gifted solo artist, left behind a legacy of political consciousness after his 1987 murder. The estate of the groundbreaking reggae artist announced on Tuesday, Aug. 9, that it will be launching a series of partnerships with Amnesty International and Greenpeace.
A campaign is already underway with Amnesty International, which will give away his solo version 'Get Up Stand Up' (which he co-wrote with Bob Marley) in order to drum up support for Mexican human-rights defender Lydia Cacho. The Cancun-based journalist has received numerous death threats after she exposed a government-backed child-pornography ring, and anyone who signs up to "stand up for Lydia" will receive the free MP3.
In the coming weeks, Tosh's music will also be used in campaigns by Greenpeace International, Students for a Sensible Drug Policy and the Marijuana Policy Project, and will highlight music from his solo albums 'Legalize It' (1976) and 'Equal Rights' (1977). The SSDP is hosting a video contest in which people can submit a PSA on the them of "What 'Legalize It' Means to Me," in support of the first-ever marijuana legalization bill in Congress. The winner will have their video featured in the effort and receive a "Legacy Edition" of 'Legalize It.'

The “Be a TV Programmer” contest was not fully a scam but it was also not the truth. The entries were to be judged by a panel at Current TV, but that is not the case, in fact there is no evidence that any entry was judged but most likely picked at random by an independent agency that has no ties to Current except they were hired to pick winners and take care of the legal jargon. That company is http://eprize.com/ this is their home page and it will explain what they do and how they do it. This is why most of the winners do not have a profile, it is not eprize’s job to view profiles, just go off of the membership list provided to them by Current. I doubt they had any knowledge of a top 20 for the contest, it would not be cost effective to have someone read 400 entries, that range from 5 to 15 pages. This is were the lie come to surface in the rules Current states entries will be judged on certain criteria you can read those here. http://current.com/sl/contest_terms.htm it gives the impression that entries will be judged, not picked randomly. So repost this everywhere, as this will be flagged fast, like when I first asked about the contest I was flagged in 5 minutes and the link was taken down.

Current TV Programmer Contest:
Who Are These People?
ONE DOWN---FIVE TO GO
Current TV Programmer Contest - Something Fishy's Going On
1) The winners names were posted, however the winning pitches of the contest were never posted.
2) Some entrants have been going through all the pitches and not finding any names that match the winners.
3) Numerous requests to Current TV have gone unanswered regarding these issues.
4) The final night of the contest (according to the official rules) was supposed to end at 12 Midnight- it did not end at midnight but instead ended at 10PM, 2 hours earlier, and pitches were posted through an alternate means after the 12 midnight hour doing it in a process not in accordance with the Official Rules- I have Print Screens of all the Activity that took place on the last 2 hours of the contest to prove this contest ran afoul of its own rules.
5) I emailed Current tonight again asking for an explanation and let them know I was going to alert the media, which caused them to take down the following page- http://current.com/studios/marketing/be-a-tv-programmer/
Using a mirror search I was able to find the page in Google Cache-

Scientists around the world are researching or seeking the funds to research ways to produce meat in the laboratory—without killing any animals. In vitro meat production would use animal stem cells that would be placed in a medium to grow and reproduce. The result would mimic flesh and could be cooked and eaten. Some promising steps have been made toward this technology, but we’re still several years away from having in vitro meat be available to the general public.Scientists around the world are researching or seeking the funds to research ways to... more

Mission Against Terror Winner A year supply of Twinkies
Sounds like a bad joke but it is true!
guys at Suba Games to give away prizes for their game Mission Against Terror. After playing countless hours of the game killing flesh eating mummies and killer robots, a winner was finally crowned in our massive Twinkies giveaway. Yes, you heard that right, we gave away a year supply of Twinkies.
Congrats to Ryan! With all those hours playing games, now he has no reason to even go food shopping. Because Twinkies are filled with all the nutrients you need! There was also the extra $250 Amazon gift card he picked up in our Mission Against Terror: End of the World promotion.
If you wonder what all those Twinkies look like, here it is. He reminds of the cat magician on America’s Got Talent this past week, but that’s neither here nor there.Mission Against Terror Winner A year supply of Twinkies Sounds like a bad joke but... more
