Game time at new-look Hackley Stadium: Watch time-lapse video of $1 million renovation

MUSKEGON – Shane Fairfield was 9 years old when he played his first football game at Hackley Stadium.

Several years later, the memory is still vivid for Muskegon High School’s 11th-year head coach. The stadium, however, looks a bit different.

“That was exciting because I felt like I was in the Big House (at University of Michigan). I mean, being a 9-year-old kid going through that tunnel and seeing the field and there’s no track around it and that kind of stuff, I was blown away then,” Fairfield recalled earlier this week, as he prepared his Big Reds (1-0, 1-0 OK Green Conference) for their big crosstown matchup against Mona Shores (1-0, 1-0).

At 7 tonight, the Big Reds will finally get the opportunity to play in their upgraded, century-old stadium. As fate would have it, the rival Sailors will be on the opposing sideline.

Video gaming as a child related to improvements in memory

A new study exploring the link between video games and cognition finds that playing video games as a child can improve a person’s working memory years later on specific tasks.

Video games can be a contentious topic, particularly among parents or caregivers who may be concerned about the effects of spending hours in front of the console.

Yet, it seems that some video gaming could actually be beneficial. Recent studies have shown that playing video games could improve learning and may even protect against dementia in older adults.

The authors of a recent review of the evidence on video games concluded that gaming could have benefits for both cognitive and emotional skills.

In a new study, which features in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, researchers from the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya in Barcelona trained volunteers to play “Super Mario 64” — a game that researchers have previously shown

‘Demon’s Souls’ comparison video highlights the remake’s improvements

Following the new gameplay footage of Demon’s Souls on the PS5, a comparison video between the original game and the remake showcases the latter’s improvements.

The game has been outsourced to Bluepoint Games, the developer which most recently worked on the Shadow Of The Colossus Remake, and YouTube user, Joshua Gamez, has created an in-depth video which reveals the improvements between the PS3 and upcoming PS5 version of the game.

The recent gameplay demonstration featured gameplay from Demon’s Souls opening tutorial area. The comparison reveals that lighting is to be an improvement over the original, as Demon’s Souls Remake boasts an atmospheric range of lighting effects. Sunlight seeps through the cracks of buildings in a natural way, and fires deliver a warm, ominous glow.

Character models have also been drastically update, most notably evidenced in the demo’s climactic boss battle against the Vanguard. The hulking monster is seen with

Ocado sales surge as shoppers stay home [Video]

Another busy quarter for the robots at Ocado warehouses…

The UK online supermarket says revenue at its retail arm jumped 52% as shoppers stuck at home opted to get their food delivered.

That took third-quarter revenue to about 756 million dollars.

The growth follows an over-40% surge in the previous quarter.

Online food shopping has more than doubled its share of the UK market since the global health crisis began.

14% of all groceries are now delivered, and Ocado reckons that could hit 30% over the next few years.

The coming quarter will mark a key test for the firm though.

From the first of September it has dropped long-time partner Waitrose.

Instead it will offer products from rival chain Marks & Spencer.

Ocado says customers have responded positively to the switch, with demand for the new range driving an increase in the number of products in customer baskets.

Joy-Anna Duggar Puts on Makeup While Laboring: Birth Video

Up close and personal. One month after their daughter’s birth, Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth shared footage from Evelyn’s arrival.

“We arrived at the hospital at 8 p.m. Started a low dose of Pitocin that night to get Joy’s contractions going,” Forsyth, 26, captioned their Saturday, September 5, YouTube video. “At 7:30 a.m. that next morning, the doctor came in and broke her water. Once he did that, contractions became pretty strong and steady and her body started to labor on its own. At around 1 p.m., Joy started pushing and our baby girl arrived at 2:12 p.m!”

The Counting On star noted that their little one was “posterior (sunny side up),” which explained his wife’s back pain during labor and “why she had to push so long.”

While Duggar, 22, didn’t receive an epidural when she welcomed son Gideon, now 2, in 2018, she opted for
