Physicists say time travel can be simulated using quantum entanglement | Gizmodo

23 years ago, Sony changed video games forever | Kotaku

“Gaming looked very different before the PS2 came along. The industry was dominated by 32- and 64-bit games of the ‘90s, like the PS1 and Nintendo 64. Think harsh lines, sharp polygons, and simple color palettes. Everything was lo-fi, and while that style has come back into fashion, the photorealism of modern hardware was a distant dream.”

Here are a few stories about the celebration of All Saint’s Day:

All Saints’ Day from Brittanica: “All Saints’ Day, also called All Hallows’ Day, Hallowmas, or Feast of All Saints, in the Christian church, a day commemorating all the saints of the church, both known and unknown, who have attained heaven. It is celebrated on November 1 in the Western churches and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in the Eastern churches. In Roman Catholicism, the feast is usually a holy day of obligation.”

All Saints’ Day – the origins from “In the year 731 AD, 1 November was designated a day of remembrance for saints of the church who had no days of their own. From the 11th century, 2 November was dedicated to all the dead, of whatever standing, and was called All Souls’ Day. It was widely observed by the populace, with requiems and bell-ringing, but was abolished with the arrival of the Reformation.”

All Saints’ Day traditions in Poland from ITS Poland: “On the 1st of November millions of Poles come to cemeteries to light special candles, leave flowers and pray for the dead - their relatives and friends. It is also a holiday celebrated by some other denominations, as well as a custom practiced by non-denominational and non-believers, intended to be an expression of remembrance and devotion and respect to the deceased. … At this time, people also remember about those whose graves are forgotten by others on a daily basis. At the same time, they recall outstanding Poles who made a significant contribution to the development of the country's culture and heritage, and who deceased recently.”
