Bungie will forever be known as the studio that created Halo. Destiny, the new game from the Bellevue, Washington–based video-game developer, was designed with similar ambitions.
Microsoft acquired Bungie in 2000, just in time to turn Halo: Combat Evolved into an Xbox exclusive. The franchise, with eight original games and sales in excess of US$2 billion, is key to the continued success of Microsoft’s gaming division.
Quick—which do you prefer: rice or noodles? This year’s Taiwanfest is inviting you to witness the ultimate carb showdown.
Jack White in the bucolic setting of Deer Lake Park shouldn’t compute.

Not least of all because so much of his set had the antique quality of mountain and porch music forced through a battery of screaming tube amps.
Plus, on occasion (and ignoring the tensor bandage), he was barefoot.
Back to nature!

A binner’s business—if you can call it that—is with the recycling blue bins and Dumpsters outside of apartment buildings.
What goes on inside the buildings is normally none of our business but word does leak out. Binners naturally get to chatting with building managers and tenants. Pleasantries are exchanged. Grievances are aired.
Tenants mostly complain about their rent and the upkeep of their suites. Building managers complain about tenants, tradespeople, and garbage.
Garbage problems can be a particular sore point because they can mean a visible mess, which reflects poorly on the building.
