On November 17th, Glasgow-based indie studio Rhizome Games released their debut title: Loot Hound. It is an overhead exploration/collection title tasking the player with guiding one of three dogs through areas containing loot, all the while avoiding the Park Ranger and other obstacles. In Loot Hound, players assume the role of a compulsive hoarder; aided by his trusty canine companion he scours through local parks in search of that elusive treasure. May it be something mundane like old dirty socks, or something rare and long thought lost to history like the personal belongings of former presidents. Lost Hound's collection mechanic seems to be designed around the notion that one man's garbage is another man's treasure. Lead Game Designer Pete Low--whose previous work includes Dark Summit and Scarface: The World Is Yours--cites Ico and Animal Crossing's mini-games as sources of inspiration for Loot Hound. …show more content…
However, your canine companions distract easily, and it's the players job to anticipate problems before they happen and preemptively nip them in the bud. In addition to the environmental distractions--like flocks of birds--, players also have to evade the Park Ranger. If he spots the player, he commences chasing the treasure-hunters off the grass unless they manage to give him the slip. Over the course of the game, players will get access to three different dogs who each have unique abilities--for instance, Wifi can squeeze through tiny gaps--and upgradable skills. There are 110 collectibles to unearth across ten parks of varying size in Loot

Labrador retrievers are one of the most popular pets in the United States, but not always for the right reasons. Many times people will get a lab hoping it will fulfill their dreams without even considering the pros and cons. Labs are typically very loveable, and energetic, but they can also be very detrimental.
This has led to the belief that dogs can provide company, affection and support to people who are going through a difficult time or who feel lonely. Dogs have aided humans in tasks such as hunting, livestock herding, and guarding. However, as society moved from small rural communities to increasingly large metropolitan areas, the dog’s role changed. Throughout the years a more specific type of
Eighner chooses to dive into dumpsters not because he needs the material items he finds, but rather because he does not. In the conclusion of his essay “On Dumpster Diving,” Eighner makes it clear that he believes excess material objects are unnecessary and that they do more harm than good for a person, and this is true. Eighner accurately describes how having large amounts of material goods does nothing to improve the well-being or morality of the human race because holding onto physical possessions leads to the development of bad habits and traits within society.
The essay “On Dumpster Diving“, by Lars Eighner is based on a man who speaks of his survival as a homeless man accompanied by his dog named Lizbeth. Not only does he explain his strategies living out of dumpsters, but also the lessons he has learned as a scavenger. Most importantly I think the true message he was trying to get across is that we waste way more then we think we do, it’s in our nature.
In the 1940s during World War II the Chicago Cubs owner, Phillip K. Wrigley arranged the U.S’s very first women’s professional baseball league. Some men were leaving the teams to go attend the Army and Navy to help end World War II. Phillip was worried that the president, Franklin D. Roosevelt would cancel Major League Baseball (MLB) until the war was over, and fans would permanently become disinterested with the game. So as a substitute he created the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). Phillip then organized tryouts, and they were held in May of 1943. The Cubs baseballs scouts invited 280 women to contend for a position on the teams, 60 of the women made a team. But before they could play they were sent to charm school,
Fort Madison Bloodhounds came up with win Tuesday Night at the Hound Dome against the Mount Pleasant Panthers. Hounds started off their first home game with a win, winning three out of four of the games. Panthers came back and won the the third game, but couldn’t keep up with the Hounds in the fourth game. Which led to their loss. Last year Hounds came up with the conference championship, and later lost at sub state against West Creek Amana. We will see if the Bloodhounds can hold the title of Conference Champions for two years in a row.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, or so the saying goes. What this classic idiom portrays is the idea that value is something entirely subjective, what is useless to one person is highly valued by another. Furthermore, the use of the word “treasure” implies a value so great it is almost incomprehensible; a treasure is something so valuable and important that it is cherished and held dear. The difference between something of value and something that is a treasure is generally an emotional attachment or reaction to the treasure.
A disclaimer: prepare to leave this review digging at your head and feeling imaginary bugs crawling on your skin. Parasites like head lice are disgusting, but as a mother of three and after seven years working at a daycare center, it’s a subject I am all too familiar with. We recently had an outbreak at my home. You would think having boys would make me immune to this chore, but not a chance with kids that love that unkempt, long-haired, rock and roll style. After trying quite a few lice treatment products through the years, Nix Complete Lice Elimination Kit genuinely impressed me. It’s not something I like dealing with, but this product eased some of the headache.
The FBLA scavenger hunt was a fun activity that we did in FBLA to kick off the start of the school year. This scavenger hunt was just like a regular one, except with a slight twist. You had to take a selfie with the person/place or thing that was on the list. There were about 20-30 people at Legion Park where the scavenger hunt took place at 7:00 pm. We all got into groups of three to four and had a blast while hunting down the twenty things to take selfies with. The top two teams got candy as prizes for finishing the fastest. The team including Taylor Peterson, Kade Reiman, Tessa Hannaford, and Addison Gyrha managed to finish the quickest with another team seconds behind them. The second place team was composed of Yusuf Khan, Gage Armstrong,
While some deer hunters can pick up shed antlers like a kid collecting quarry stones, there are others who couldn't find a bone if their life depended on it. What do the most successful shed hunters do that separate them from the rest? A couple key things can have a huge positive impact on how many sheds you find. For example, perhaps they cover more ground, or they spend a greater length of time doing it. Here are the top three things that will ensure you have a successful shed hunt.
Ahh humidity, the occurrence that makes a thirty degrees feel like a thirty-five and your hair possibly into something that resembles a road sign more than anything else. One way to help tame it is to not shampoo your hair everyday as that removes the natural oils from your hair making it far more likely to puff. Also try to not agitate your hair as much as possible (i.e. over brush or dry to vigorously) as that can damage your hair making it more prone to that frizziness. There are also half a million frizz-fighting hair products out there so, if you need to, try and find one that works for you.
In Matt Porter’s video, “Freegans: Creative Living Outside of Capitalism” a gentleman states, “Our waste can feed a nation.” In this case, some of America’s waste is feeding the scavengers. Homelessness can lead to dumpster diving for a means of survival. These people dig through thrown out items that can still be eaten and used. One man’s discarded garbage, in turn, can become another man’s lifeline. “Almost everything I have now has already been cast out at least once, proving that what I own is valueless to someone,” (362) Eighner confessed about some of the treasures he has gathered from dumpster diving. Because the general public missuses its resources, dumpster finds are either used for personal gain, such as eating, or they will be

For millions of years dogs have remained a constant companion of man. Bred from the aggressive and formidable Gray Wolf tens of thousands of years ago the domestic dog now lives in many homes across the world. Where in the far distant past the domestic dog was bred as a guard animal, a beast of burden, and even a food source the dogs of today are bred for a far more endearing purpose-companionship and love. Finding a pet dog that is more of a joy than a chore is necessary when asking: How much is that puppy in the window?
