  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Stand Off Map is Causing A Mandela Effect The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War community is divided over a big, yellow Russian sign featured in the classic map, Stand Off. By Joseph Docherty Published 3 days ago https://gamerant.com/call-of-duty-black-ops-2-stand-off-map-mandela-effect/ The Mandela Effect is a phenomenon that makes people question even the most mundane memories from the past. For example, in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back many remember the iconic line that reveals that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s father going as, “Luke, I am your father.” But this surprisingly isn’t the case, although thousands would contest based on a differing memory, all Darth Vader actually said was, “I am your father.” Now, this same sensation has struck the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 fan base. Discovered in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, player Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal sparked the passionate debate in the community over a single image. The photograph shows the remastered version of the classic multiplayer map, Standoff, which was reintroduced as part of Season three Reloaded's content. Yet all is not as it seems, with many players just only now noticing this yellow sign that is hung up on a streetlamp, across from the town's large monument. The response to the Tweet is extraordinarily varied. The usual pattern seems to be that many Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players deny Stand Off has ever had the sign there, whilst just as many Call of Duty veterans assert that they clearly remember its existence. This was reinforced by some who maintain it was a common tactic in the CoD sniping community to use the sign as an angle advantage on incoming attackers. This mixed response caused numerous players to return to Call of Duty Black Ops 2 to check out the original Stand Off map. Jumping back into the original map players can find multiple SDC tanks scattered throughout the town as well as multiple shops and building barricades vandalized in Russian. More importantly, near the center of the town is the large yellow sign in all its rusty glory confirming it has been present in Stand Off since it first arrived back in 2012. Overall, this trip down memory lane has led many players to consider if there has been any more Mandela Effects in the long and winding Call of Duty's franchise. Fans have started debating if there were always names written on the mailboxes in Nuketown or the map Hijacked always took place during the daytime. Either way, a lot of users have seemed to agree with one user who simply put, "The simulation is glitching. Mandela effect is in overdrive." https://gamerant.com/call-of-duty-black-ops-2-stand-off-map-mandela-effect/

  3. Shaquille O'Neal would make a 'Shazaam' and 'Kazaam' team-up movie with Sinbad: 'Always for the kids' May 11, 2020 https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/shaq-shazaam-kazaam-teamup-movie-sinbad-163915450.html Back in 1996, Shaquille O’Neal brought some of his on-court magic onscreen in the kiddie comedy, Kazaam. In recent years, though, a certain section of the internet has convinced itself that the NBA superstar wasn’t that era’s only PG-rated genie. On Reddit and other message boards, ’90s kids have insisted that they also grew up watching Shazaam, a kids-and-their-genie movie that supposedly starred the comedian Sinbad. Never mind that no information — let alone footage — of this other film exists, and Sinbad himself has denied ever playing Shazaam or any other cinematic genie... though he did mess with peoples’ memories further by appearing in a fake April Fool’s Day clip produced by CollegeHumor. Speaking with Yahoo Entertainment, O’Neal says that he hasn’t followed the ongoing Kazaam vs. Shazaam debate. “Never heard of that one,” the retired Los Angeles Laker says on the phone from L.A. Maybe that’s because he only gets his Kazaam news from actual kids, not the overgrown kids on the internet. “Kazaam was a movie that was supposed to be for kids,” O’Neal says. “It’s not for adults — it’s for kids that are from 2 to 7, because when they see me, they think I’m magic. As long as they think I’m magic, who cares what adults say?” And if today’s kids want to see him and Sinbad teaming up as Kazaam and Shazaam in an Avengers-style team-up movie, he’d put back on his ‘90s costume. “Of course I would. Always for the kids.” https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/shaq-shazaam-kazaam-teamup-movie-sinbad-163915450.html

  12. Methadone users may have better protection against Covid Numbers of infections in people in treatment for heroin addiction far lower than expected about 14 hours ago Conor Gallagher https://www.irishtimes.com/news/health/methadone-users-may-have-better-protection-against-covid-1.4625125 Patients in treatment for heroin addiction appear to be far more resilient to Covid-19 than initially believed, with researchers suggesting drugs such as methadone may protect against the disease. At the start of the pandemic last year it had been assumed Covid would disproportionately impact drug addicts due primarily to their associated health problems. However, according to new Irish research Covid rates have been much lower than expected among people receiving opiate agonist treatment (OAT), a therapy which uses methadone or similar drugs to treat opioid addiction. Of the 565 attendees at the HSE’s National Drug Treatment Centre (NDTC) in inner-city Dublin, none displayed serious illnesses indicative of Covid and none died as a result of the disease throughout the first three waves of the pandemic. Antibody tests were carried out on a subset of patients, comprising 103 people. Researchers found only two patients (1.9 per cent) had contracted Covid-19 despite several more patients reporting close contacts with a Covid sufferer. An “equivocal” Covid result was found in a third patient. The prevalence of Covid in the general population in Dublin was almost double at 3.1 per cent, according to a separate study conducted in the previous month. “The expectation that Covid-19 would spread rapidly through the OAT population did not materialise here or elsewhere,” the authors concluded. The results of the study, which was carried out by researchers at the NDTC and published in the Irish Journal of Medical Science, tally with larger international studies. “Despite an estimated 654,000 opioid users in Europe receiving OAT, most health professionals surveyed did not report cases,” the researchers said, while those that did reported them in very low numbers. Another Dublin-based study of homeless drug-users also showed an “unexpectedly low incidence of Covid-19 and no deaths”, the authors said. The NDTC study was carried out between July and October 2020, during which Ireland experienced two waves of the disease. Medications Researchers postulated that medications such methadone and buprenorphine, which are used as therapeutic substitutes for heroin, may have a “protective effect” against Covid. The two patients who did test positive for Covid were on low dose of methadone at the time, and their symptoms quickly resolved. The study said it is also possible the cohort had a low level of exposure to the disease. However, researchers added that NDTC patients were at a broadly similar risk compared to other Dubliners and “at a theoretically higher risk due to routine sharing of drug paraphernalia, cigarettes, and masks and personal challenges in maintaining social distancing”. Public health measures such as providing hotel accommodation for homeless people could be responsible but they do “not fully explain” the low levels of Covid amongst people in treatment for heroin addiction. Instead of Covid-19, the authors said the main risks to this group during the pandemic was “increased risk of drug overdose due to changes in service delivery and drug market changes”. The study called for more research into the possible protective effects of opioid-substitution therapy. https://www.irishtimes.com/news/health/methadone-users-may-have-better-protection-against-covid-1.4625125
