Fans of Japanese video games couldn’t believe their ears as Olympic athletes paraded into Tokyo’s National Stadium during the opening ceremony for the 2020 Games on Friday: the orchestra was playing tunes from some of their favourite games.In a celebration of Japanese popular culture that is appreciated worldwide, the entry parade was set to tunes from games developed by Sega, Capcom and Square Enix. It kicked off with “Overture: Roto’s Theme” from Dragon Quest. Next up was “Victory Fanfare” from Final Fantasy. The parade featured more tunes from Monster Hunter, Soulcaliber and Sonic the Hedgehog. (Check out the original list in Japanese from Nikkan Sports, or in English from Polygon.) According to Classic FM, the music from Kingdom Hearts was composed by Yoko Shimomura, who is responsible for the music for some of the biggest video games ever made. Fans were delighted to hear her work being incorporated into the ceremony.KINGDOM HEARTS OLYMPUS COLOSSEUM MUSIC HOLYYYYYY!!!!!!!! #Tokyo2020pic.twitter.com/gwWGjwU1lV— ☆オードリーAudrey☆ (@aitaikimochi) July 23, 2021The ost of Kingdom Hearts (Olympus Coliseum) by queen Yoko Shimomura while Italy entered the stadium ✨ #Tokyo2020— Giopota (@giopota) July 23, 2021While the list didn’t feature widely recognised tunes from cultural juggernauts like Mario Bros. or The Legend of Zelda, the music helped give a sense of atmosphere to the ceremony, which was held in almost an empty stadium due to coronavirus restrictions.Olympians waved mostly for the cameras in the made-for-TV ceremony, which only had about 1,000 people in attendance at the 68,000-capacity stadium ― VIPs like Japanese Emperor Naruhito, first lady Jill Biden, members of the International Olympic Committee and journalists. In another nod to Japanese pop culture, the placard for each country’s delegation was in the style of a speech bubble from manga, which is Japanese comics and graphic novels. The signs had the country’s name in English on one side and Japanese on another.And in another tribute to Japanese pop culture, the Google Doodle, which is accessed by going to the google.com home page, also starts out with an anime-inspired theme, then moves to an incredibly elaborate ’80s-style arcade game.The exposure to anime and manga from the Tokyo Games may serve to make the art forms even more popular worldwide, said Susan Napier, a professor of rhetoric and Japanese studies at Tufts University, according to The Washington Post.Related...The Most Stunning Photos From The Tokyo Olympics Opening CeremonyTonga's Shirtless Flag Bearer Rocks Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony, With 1 DifferenceItaly Turns Heads At Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony With 'Interesting' OutfitsVictoria Beckham Reminisces About Spice Girls' Olympics Performance As Tokyo 2020 Gets UnderwayOlympic Committee Ends Social Media Photo Blackout of Athletes Taking A KneeSimone Biles Drops Jaws With ‘Incredible’ Training SessionTony Hawk Barged The Tokyo Olympics Skateboard Park And Showed How It's Done

(Houston Methodist) Houston Methodist Neurological Institute researchers from the department of neurosurgery shrunk a deadly glioblastoma tumor by more than a third using a helmet generating a noninvasive oscillating magnetic field that the patient wore on his head while administering the therapy in his own home. The 53-year-old patient died from an unrelated injury about a month into the treatment, but during that short time, 31% of the tumor mass disappeared. The autopsy of his brain confirmed the rapid response to the treatment.

You’ve probably heard of the Higgs boson. This elusive particle was predicted to exist long ago and helped explain why the universe works the way it does, but it took decades for us to detect. Well, there’s another elusive particle that has also been predicted by quantum physics, and it’s been missing for an even longer time. In fact, we still haven’t spotted one, and not through lack of trying. It’s called the magnetic monopole, and it has a few unique properties that make it rather special. Parallels Those with an interest in physics are probably already familiar with an…This story continues at The Next Web

Since 2019, Amazon has sold nearly 400,000 hair dryers that could shock someone if they fell into a pool of water, 24,000 carbon monoxide detectors that didn’t actually detect carbon monoxide, and an unspecified number of “children’s sleepwear garments” that didn’t meet flammability requirements, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Now, the US safety regulator wants to force Amazon to recall those products. This past week, it sued the company in a case that could be the latest to hold Amazon accountable for products offered by its third-party sellers. But here’s the thing: Amazon has already recalled these specific products. They’re no longer for sale.
Amazon says, and the CPSC acknowledges, that the giant...
