    The Japanese games company Bandai Namco says Masaya Nakamura, the "Father of Pac-Man" who founded the Japanese video game company behind the hit creature-gobbling game, has died at age 91. Nakamura, who died on Jan. 22, held an honorary position at Bandai Namco, formed in 2005 from a merger of two game companies. He founded Namco in 1955. Its beginnings were humble--just two mechanical horses on the rooftop of a department store. Pac-Man, designed by video game maker Toru Iwatani, went on sale in 1980. Guinness World Record has named it the world's most successful coin-operated arcade game. Bandai Namco...

    With racial issues in the United States coming to the forefront in the sports world, Major League Baseball players generally have been absent from the growing chorus of athletes who have publicly spoken out about problems they may see in the United States, and Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones thinks he knows why. "Baseball is a white man's sport," the Orioles star told USA Today. "We already have two strikes against us already,'' Jones told the newspaper, "so you might as well not kick yourself out of the game. In football, you can't kick them out. You need those players....

    Donald Trump is taking aim at Republican presidential rival Sen. Ted Cruz, a tactical shift that could be risky on two fronts: It may have come too late, and the Texas senator might actually be benefiting from the attacks...... For Mr. Cruz, being under attack by other Republicans is a badge of honor, another backer said. "It's a quasi-endorsement of Cruz to the grass roots," said Saul Anuzis, former Michigan GOP chairman. Polls show a growing number of Trump backers see Mr. Cruz as their second choice. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler said that when the campaign began, polls showed that...
  • 'That Is Not What You Said At the Time': Bret Baier Confronts Cruz on Previous Immigration Remarks

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was confronted by a Fox News Channel host Wednesday over previous comments he had previously made in favor of legalizing individuals who are in the U.S. illegally. The line of questioning was prompted by an exchange over immigration Cruz had with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) at Tuesday night's GOP debate. 'Special Report' host Bret Baier played a 2013 clip of Cruz introducing an amendment that would have stripped out a proposal for a pathway to citizenship from the gang of eight’s so-called 'amnesty' bill. Cruz boasted at the time his amendment would have allowed illegal immigrants...

    The Bottsand class oil recovery ships cruise just like any other vessel, until they reach an oil spill. Then, they open like Pac-Man, transforming into a machine that can clean the oil from 140 cubic meters of water per hour. Created by the Deutsche Marine—the German Navy—the Bottsand-class opens in half, creating an area to trap water to process in its 790 cubic meter tank. Obviously, one is not enough to clean BP's oilpocalypse in the Gulf of Mexico, but at this point in this huge disaster, anything can help.

    A principal in the infamous Las Vegas shooting involving NFL star Adam "Pacman" Jones has died under mysterious circumstances in the Bronx - and now authorities are trying to determine if she was murdered. Sadia Morrison, a 26-year-old celebrity stylist, was found dead last Friday behind 1065 University Ave., a building in High Bridge where she may have gone to visit a friend or boyfriend, police said. At first, investigators thought she had jumped to her death, police sources said, but it now appears that is not the case. An autopsy was inconclusive, and the medical examiner is conducting further...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pac Man will be reborn on Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox Live online service on Wednesday as a final tribute for designer Toru Iwatani, who is retiring from the $30 billion games industry he helped ignite. The new version of the iconic arcade game is a faithful interpretation of the addictive 27-year-old original, where players wrenched joystick controllers to race a character -- resembling a yellow pizza missing a slice -- around a digital maze to chomp white pellets and chase multicolored "ghosts." The new game, "Pac Man Championship Edition," is the second and final version Iwatani personally...
