Diablo III on Console - Blizzard is serious about it!

There is no confirmation yet about Diablo III to be developed for consoles but some owners of  Xbox 360 and PS3 were really excited about the game to be played in their favorite consoles.

In a Gamescom conference, lead designer Josh Mosqueira said that the company is "very, very serious about bringing the Diablo III experience to console."

"Today, we're trying to build the best console team at Blizzard. We're looking for programmers, designers, artists who think their dream job would be to bring Diablo to the console. Trust me, it is a dream job," he said.

Trench Digging

Digging trenches is one of the oldest types of work with both construction and excavating. Prior to World War 2, trenches were dug by hand. As workers dug the trenches deeper, the sides needed to be shored or supported, to keep the walls of the trench from caving in.

Following the World War, several innovations were made in backhoes, and trench digging seemed to fade away as a profession. By 1950, hydraulically actuated backhoes were developed, which make it possible to rapidly dig very deep trenches. Resulting from the innovations with backhoes, and because there were no workers inside digging the trenches, the walls no longer needed to be shored.

Black's Beach

Black's Beach is a two mile long, sandy strip of beach located at the base of the majestic cliffs that can be up to 300 foot high. Formally known as Torrey Pines City Beach, it's jointly owned by the City of San Diego and the State of California. There is also a glider port atop the cliff that overlooks the beach where hang gliders and even remote control gliders can be seen soaring.

Gaining access to Black's Beach isn't easy due to the high cliffs and lack of stairways. The safest access is from the adjacent beaches to the north and south, although this way may be obstructed by high tides or surf.

The cliffs here are unstable as well, and slides can occur anytime, so it's always best to stay away from them. There's no permanent lifeguard station at this beach either. There are some on duty mid day from Spring Break through the end of the October.

“ One of the worst piece of garbage shows to ever spread it's bile all over TV , and the thing I use as my shining example of why I no longer watch TV , is getting a concert movie.

Excavation

Excavation is most commonly and best known for a technique within the science of archaeology. The individual types of excavation are known simply as digs to those who participate, with this being an over literal description of the process. An excavation concerns itself with a specific archaeological site or connected series of sites, and may be carried on over a number of years, since the work is normally seasonal.

Within the industry of excavation, many more techniques may be utilized, with each dig having its own particular features that may necessitate differences of approach. Resources and other practical issues don't allow archaeologists to carry out excavations whenever and wherever they choose, as many known sites have been deliberately left alone and unexcavated.
