Gulf residents outraged by BP CEO’s yacht outing

Jun 19, 4:09 PM (ET)

By RAPHAEL SATTER and HOLBROOK MOHR

VENICE, La. (AP) – Just when it seemed Gulf residents couldn’t get any more outraged about the massive oil spill fouling their coastline, word came Saturday that BP’s CEO was taking time off to attend a glitzy yacht race in England.

Tony Hayward’s latest public relations gaffe didn’t sit well with people in the U.S. who have seen their livelihoods ruined by the massive two-month oil spill.

“Man, that ain’t right. None of us can even go out fishing, and he’s at the yacht races,” said Bobby Pitre, 33, who runs a tattoo shop in Larose, La. “I wish we could get a day off from the oil, too.”

As social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook lit up with anger, BP spokespeople rushed to defend Hayward, who has drawn withering criticism as the public face of his company’s halting efforts to stop the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

Robert Wine, a BP spokesman at the company’s Houston headquarters, said it’s the first break Hayward has had since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers and setting off the undersea gusher.

“He’s spending a few hours with his family at a weekend,” Wine said Saturday. “I’m sure that everyone would understand that.”

Not Mike Strohmeyer, who owns the Lighthouse Lodge in Venice, on Louisiana’s southern tip, who said Hayward was “just numb.”

“I don’t think he has any feelings,” he said. “If I was in his position…..

Ink Blot Mazes is a really cool resource for mazes.
Many of the mazes are of celebrities or of some famous piece of artwork. Others are just plain famous pictures from the press or media.

This is a maze of monkeys jumping off roof tops. It took something like 20 hour to draw this one, and it probably can be solved in about 1-4 minutes. Totally worth it 🙂

500 new citizens welcomed at Q150 celebrations

June 6, 2009 – 1:37PM

Brisbane has welcomed more than 500 new Australian citizens who helped launch Queensland Week celebrations on Saturday morning.

Friends and family packed out South Bank’s Suncorp Piazza as the state’s newest citizens made a pledge of commitment to their newly-adopted state and nation.

Brisbane Lord Mayor Campbell Newman told ABC Radio it was cause for a double celebration.

“I think it’s particularly special for people that they’re not only becoming Australian citizens but they’re doing it on Queensland’s special day.

“(They are) joining a great state and a fantastic city and I think that’s something to be particularly excited about.”

Saturday is Queensland Day, which commemorates Queen Victoria’s signing of Letters Patent separating Queensland from the colony of New South Wales 150 years ago in 1859.

This year’s Queensland Week celebrations over the Queen’s Birthday weekend include the state’s biggest variety show and a free barbecue.

The variety show, featuring 2,500 state school students, will be held on Saturday night at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre while on Sunday, thousands are expected to pack out the Queensland Week Big BBQ at Roma Street Parklands.

Sunday’s celebrations will also feature performances from Dora the Explorer, inflatable mazes, face painting, balloon artists, displays and workshops from 10.30am (AEST) to 3.30pm (AEST).

Also part of the Q150 program will be a free night of comedy at the Suncorp Piazza on Sunday night from 7.30pm (AEST).

Comedy Fix will bring together comedians, including lyrical trio Tripod, Charlie Pickering and Queensland’s own The Kransky Sisters, for a night of stand-up and satire.

The 2009 Suncorp Queenslanders of the Year will be announced on June 9 followed by the 2009 Queensland Greats Awards two days later.

E3: Marble Madness coming to iPhone

Andrew Williams

Handheld Games is bringing the much-loved 1984 game Marble Madness to the iPhone

Published on Jun 5, 2009

Handheld Games is bringing 1984 classic Marble Madness to the iPhone, in association with Midway.

True to the original, it’ll feature six levels of mazes that you have to navigate through to find the exit within a time limit. Aside from the standard oldie mode, there will also be a handful of new modes on offer, plus the option to use revamped visuals.

The new modes are based on various different types of race, including ‘Targets’ and ‘Flag’, where you have to roll over targets and weave between flags respectively. We don’t have any screenshots to show you at the moment, but we’ll be sure to update you as soon as any additional information shows up.

Handheld games was responsible for the iPhone sports game TouchSports Tennis ’09, and is working on a handful of other games due for release in the coming months including the shooter Lock ‘n Load.

Puzzles

March 25, 2009

Puzzles

In my mind a “puzzle” differs from a “game” in that the former is designed to be pretty much a solitary exercise, while the latter is meant to engage two or more people in some sort of competition. On this page I’m listing various puzzles that I have invented. They are heavily leaning toward the mechanical and geometric type of puzzle.

One of the joys for me, as a designer, is to figure out how these are best made (what material and so forth). I generally try to create prototypes that can be made simply and quickly, drawing upon the resources I have handy.

I often end up selling copies of these to friends (especially during the holidays) when they are looking for one-of-a-kind gifts.

Trickier than actually creating interesting puzzles seems to be naming them. As mentioned under the “Jimmy Cube”, I offered to let the first person who solved a new puzzle name it. But I’m not sure if I’m going to strictly adhere to this. After solving the Jimmy Cube at the local coffeeshop, said solver, Jimmy, couldn’t really think of a name he was completely happy with. One possibility was “The Wei” or “The Way” (a play on his first name), or, poking fun at fellow cafe-goer, Mary, who did not solve it, he thought of “The Mary Couldn’t Do It Puzzle”.

But this is led to unforeseen consequences, as Mary (though not solving it) later suggested I name 8CTO “Jimmy Is A Punk-Ass”.

Maybe I will just come up with my own names…


<!–Puzzle-crafting is not a full-time endeavor for me these days. However, if you see something that you really, really like, and you email me really, really nicely, I might find time to build you one [grin]. These items are all hand-made, built-to-order, so there are not particularly cheap. But if you are looking for a unique gift, or just love having a puzzle that you cannot buy at Wal-Mart, these may be for you. –>

Encaged

This “sliding burr”-style puzzle is being manufactured by a company in Germany. It was originally designed for and featured at my Spring 2007 Puzzle Party.


2006 Pentomino Daily Calendar

Not exactly a hand-crafted, manipulative puzzle, but related nonetheless. People interested in geometry, games, and puzzles, might be interested in my compilation of pentomino challenges in the form of a Daily Calendar. Even though we are past 2006, this item may intrigue you if you would like 365 pentomino puzzles to solve.


Eclipse

This puzzle is a set of 6 hexagonal pieces. Each is made of thin, clear plastic and is partitioned into 54 triangles. On each piece 9 of those 54 triangles are colored in black. The object is to stack the six hexagons atop one another so that the whole shape is filled in by the black triangles (i.e. no triangles remain clear all the way through the layers).


Hexerei

This is basically a smaller version (and simpler version) of 8CTO (below). It uses only 3 different colors, and a 6×6 square is formed with the pieces, not an 8×8.

Here is one solution. I do not know how many non-trivially distinct solutions there may be.


8CTO

This is a puzzle consisting of 8 rectangular pieces, each 2×4 colored unit squares. The squares are colored plastic (red, blue, yellow, or green). The object is to assemble them into an 8×8 square such that each row and column has exactly two squares of each color. The unit squares are 1″ by 1″, so the final solution measures 8 inches square.

The solution is not unique. Here is one answer. I do not know how many non-trivially distinct solutions there may be.


Jimmy Cube

Ok, first off, I know that this puzzle is not a cube. However, as friends of mine were playing with the prototype, I started a “competition” by saying whoever solved it first could name it. After several folks tried unsuccessfully to assemble the 30 rhombic pieces into a single polyhedron with the painted line forming one continuous loop, friend, Jimmy, finally succeeded.

While he was celebrating his triumph, someone off-handedly referred to the puzzle as “the Jimmy Cube”. So, until Jimmy comes up with a better name, that’s going to stick.

Besides, it’s easier to say than “Jimmy’s Rhombic Triacontahedron”.

The model pictured here is made of spruce wood (I needed light weight) with embedded magnets. It is hand painted.


Colored Icosahedron, Easy Version

Built in a similar fasion as the Jimmy Cube above (with magnets embedded in the sides of wooden pieces), this puzzle, when completed, has twenty sides, not thirty. The goal is to arrange the pieces so that the colored sections at the vertices match. There are twelve vertices on a regular icosahedron, so I painted it such that there would be 6 pairs of colors (red, white, green, yellow, blue, and orange).

This is an easier version of a related puzzle I built, which I will document later.


Colored Icosahedron, Hard Version

The same shape as the puzzle above (20-sided), this one is painted differently. The goal is to arrange the pieces so that the colored sections at the edges match.

Because there are many more edges than vertices, and of the independence of the edges’ orientations to one another, this puzzle is significantly more difficult than the “easy” icosahedron above.


Surface Mazes

I also enjoy creating mazes. Recently I’ve been focusing on creating mazes on the surfaces of various geometric shapes (or, more accurately, I’ve been focusing on creating computer programs which generate random mazes of the surfaces of geometric shapes). Pictured to the right is a maze on the surface of a “buckyball” (i.e. a truncated icosahedron, or soccer ball).

The maze is “perfectly formed”, meaning that there are no loops, and every spot on the maze is reachable from every other spot on the maze. This is really just a prototype; I plan to make a nicer one with a solid wood structure beneath the laminated paper surface. The pictured one is simply heavy paper laminated with clear contact paper and taped at the edges of tha faces. The laminate allows one to use an erasable marker on the surface when solving.

I created a maze on the surface of a cube for my first Puzzle Party back in fall of 2004. I did not have one at EPP2, but I expect similar puzzles to crop up again at future Parties.


Color Cube

Pictured here is a rough prototype of a cubic puzle I designed. The cube can be separated into 8 subsections (they slide together with tongues and grooves). This model is fashioned out of wood, and painted.

I hope to make later ones smoother and with a higher degree of precision so that the tongues and grooves fit more snugly. I will also paint the blue section a lighter blue so that it is easier for me to tell it apart from the purple section.


Explore

This puzzle was my entry in the 2005 Nob Yoshigahara Puzzle Design Competition (formerly the IPP Design Competition). I have a webpage devoted exclusively to this puzzle. It is a somewhat “open-ended” challenge in that the best possible answer is not immediately obvious (in fact, I still do not know if the best answer so far obtained is the theoretic optimum).

Despite this goal-ambiguity, I very much enjoy this puzzle as I feel it encourages the player to simply manipulate the pieces and try to discover interesting configurations… thus the name.
