I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening.

Bluehole/Krafton In the realm of battle royale games, PUBG and Apex Legends are still a ways from catching up to Fortnite. However, one game is adding a popular feature from the other. PUBG’s update #30 has a new feature called Radio Messages that will let players send short messages to their teammates without using voice chat, according to the patch notes on Wednesday. This addition is similar to Apex Legends’ Ping system. Players can use eight different types of messages via a wheel interface. The messages can ask for ammo or backup if an enemy has been spotted, or simply thank a teammate for helping. Where this new feature resembles Apex Legends’ system is that it allows for pinging. The new wheel UI to send messages for PUBG. Bluehole/Krafton If a PUBG player is near an item or sees an enemy, selecting “ping” from the wheel interface will relay the position of said item or enemy to their teammates. This allows for players who chose not to, or are unable to, use voice chat to still communicate and strategize with their team. When Apex Legends came out back in February, many players cited its Ping system as one of the most innovative features of the game for allowing players to talk to each other without needing a mic. Others changes in update #30 are the ability to ledge grab so players can climb onto roofs or over fences, the addition of Desert Eagle handgun and gas cans will now blow up if shot. The new patch is currently available on the PUBG PC test servers and will make its way to the live game soon.

Kolkata: The Sealdah Court has recently awarded life imprisonment to two persons for their involvement in trafficking of a minor girl from Ultadanga and selling her to a dance bar in Uttar Pradesh.The court has also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 each and an additional one-year imprisonment for wrongful confinement of the victim. According to sources, on September 2014, the Ultadanga police station received a complaint from a woman who told the police that her 14-year-old daughter had gone missing. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata The investigation revealed that the missing girl had an affair with a man named Rahul Ghosh, who was a bus conductor. The sleuths had doubts that Ghosh could be involved in the case as he also went missing for a few days at that time. The police also learnt from the girl’s family members that she used to dance well. They got information that the girl told some of her close friends that Ghosh was well acquainted with a dance troupe in Uttar Pradesh and he had allegedly promised her a job.

The girl was locked up in a room of a dance bar. She was recovered within 10 days after the police complaint was lodged. Ghosh had sold her to the owner of the bar. The sleuths could also nabbed the bar owner Suresh Gupta. A case was initiated against them on charges of wrongful confinement and women trafficking and accordingly the charge-sheet was submitted.
