For fans of The Queen’s Gambit, or just chess players generally, this game will let them take on an active role and actually play the game, either against AI opponents representing characters from the series, or other real people with its multiplayer setup.

Ready for another ride with the Belmont clan?

It draws inspiration from two games in the series specifically, Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Castlevania: Symphony of Night.

A new look at Tekken: Bloodline

Producer Katsuhiro Harada gave fans some insight into what this show will include when it’s released later this year, which is events that they may have read about in a character’s backstory from the Tekken games, but haven’t seen yet. The new clips previewed show Jin Kazama as he lives with his mother Jun Kazama, while Harada says that if Jin were a real person, he’d apologize for making so many terrible things happen to him.

More Cuphead

When Netflix’s Cuphead adaptation premiered, we said that, unlike the game it’s based on, its frenzied energy could make it “feel as if it’s rushing itself along in fear of people losing interest.” Cuphead and his brother Mugman will get another attempt when new episodes premiere later this year, here’s a sneak peek.

And a peek at Sonic Prime

We didn’t get a full trailer or anything, but if you’d like to check in with Big the Cat and Froggy, then here you go. Sonic Prime is “coming soon” to Netflix, but the streamer didn’t have a lot of it to show off this week.

Movies

The Sea Beast’s new trailer has action, drama, and sea beasts

The Sea Beast represents a pretty big swing from Netflix, going head-to-head with Disney when it comes to blockbuster animated films. It’s directed by Chris Williams — who previously directed Big Hero 6 and served as a writer on Moana — and the latest trailer is filled with plenty of action and other seafaring hijinks. There’s even a cute blue creature. The Sea Beast is due to hit Netflix on July 8th.

A quick glimpse at Troll

Netflix announced a new live-action monster movie called Troll, and while the initial teaser is brief, it’s more than enough to get a sense of the film — and just how big this troll really is. Troll doesn’t currently have a premiere date.

A behind-the-scenes look at Day Shift

In Day Shift, Jamie Foxx plays a regular dude who cleans pools during the day, but has a secret life as a vampire hunter at night. Unfortunately, we don’t have a new trailer for the movie, but Netflix instead released some behind-the-scenes footage that at least shows off some cool car chases and gunfights. Day Shift is coming to Netflix on August 12th.

Blasted looks ridiculous — in a good way

The debut trailer for Blasted is short, but it manages to cram a lot into that time. It starts out at a wedding, moves to a paintball game, and before you know it there’s a full-on alien invasion. I have no idea what’s going on, but it looks like a lot of fun. I mean, it has the tagline “bros before UFOs.” It’s slated to hit Netflix on June 28th.

A short look at Jordan Peele’s Wendell and Wild

Netflix has steadily been building up its library of original stop motion projects, and one of the latest was co-created by none other than Jordan Peele. Wendell and Wild is described as “an animated tale about scheming demon brothers who enlist the aid of 13-year-old Kat Elliot, a tough teen with a load of guilt, to summon them to the Land of the Living.” The new clip shows a child running terrified through a hallway, before making a very creepy discovery. The movie is due to hit Netflix in October.

A closer look at Spiderhead

Spiderhead has already looked plenty strange and unsettling in its first trailers, and a new extended clip gives a closer look at how this sci-fi prison experiments on its inmates. If it looks intriguing, well good news: it coming out very soon, with a June 17th premiere date.

An extended action sequence from The Gray Man

The Gray Man is a big tentpole for Netflix’s celebrity-filled summer slate, and this new clip gives a good idea of how fun it will be to watch Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling square off against each other. The movie is reportedly the streaming service’s most expensive to date — and it hits Netflix on July 22nd.

The School for Good And Evil gets its very first teaser

On paper, The School for Good And Evil sounds incredible. Directed by Paul Feig, the fantasy film also has an all-star cast featuring the likes of Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Laurence Fishburne, and Michelle Yeoh. And thankfully, it also looks great in the first teaser. The School For Good And Evil doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but it’s expected to debut this fall.

Fans of Mike Flanagan’s brand of horror — which includes The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and, most recently, Midnight Mass — are in luck this Halloween.

A brief tease of Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities

The first teaser for the horror anthology doesn’t really show much of what you can expect, but it does detail some of the key names behind the project. While del Toro himself is the showrunner and executive producer, he’s managed to recruit some notable writers and directors from movies like Mandy, The Empty Man, and Splice. The easer, meanwhile, reveals some new cast members: Eric André, Sofia Boutella, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Rupert Grint, Kate Micucci, and Charlyne Yi. The series doesn’t have a release date, but it’s expected to debut this year.

An update on Sweet Tooth’s second season

The first teaser for season 3 of Locke and Key

Locke and Key took a darker turn for its second season, and based on the latest trailer, it appears that trend will continue in season 3. The generation-spanning story about magical keys looks like it will be deadlier than ever, and the new teaser also marks the return of a very important villain. Season 3 will mark the end of the series, and it debuts on August 10th.

A clip of Fate: The Winx Saga season 2

Ahead of its next season, Netflix has released a brief clip of Fate: The Winx Saga, focused on a new earth fairy character named Flora. Season 2 doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but Netflix says it’s “coming soon.”

Filming has wrapped up on Shadow & Bone season 2

We don’t have a trailer for the second season of Shadow & Bone, but Netflix did confirm that production has wrapped, so we’ll likely hear more news — including a premiere date — very soon.

Manifest gets a trailer for season 4

Netflix picked up Manifest — one of a surprisingly large number of shows about disappearing planes — for a fourth season, and debuted a trailer for the series at Geeked Week. The streamer also revealed just how big the season will be: season 4 will be divided into two parts, each 10 episodes long, though we don’t have a premiere date yet.

All of Us Are Dead renewed for season 2

The first season of All of Us Are Dead did something pretty remarkable: it was a zombie story that felt fresh and interesting. So it’s great news to learn that a second season is in the works, though there aren’t any details yet, nor a release timeframe.

The first teaser for 1899

1899 is a mix of mystery and horror, and the first teaser reveals just what a tense combination that can be. The period piece stars Emily Beecham, and comes from the creators of the German sci-fi thriller Dark. No word yet on when it will debut on Netflix.

A quick look at The Umbrella Academy season 3

We’re not too far out from season 3 of The Umbrella Academy — it hits Netflix on June 22nd — but you can ease that wait with a brief clip of the show, starring a previously swanky hotel.

Exclusive: Best Car Insurance for Military and Veterans for July 2022 – CNET – TalkOfNews.com

Best Car Insurance for Military and Veterans for July 2022     - CNET

#Car #Insurance #Military #Veterans #July #CNET

If you’re an active-duty military member or a veteran (or sometimes their family members), there are a couple of good places to check for car insurance. Some companies offer discounts for vets while other auto insurance carriers create policies specifically for them. Military members and vets may have access to a variety of cheaper car insurance options that aren’t available to the general public, often with rates hundreds of dollars below the national average. 

Car insurance companies that exclusively cover service members and veterans — whether you’re a sailor, Marine, soldier, airman, Coast Guardsman, National Guard member or reservist — provide a pricing scale that larger insurers typically can’t match. Eligibility for the families of service members or veterans will depend on the carrier. 

If you fall into any of these categories, it’s still critical to compare rates and policies. “Current and former military [personnel] should shop for insurance just like everyone else,” said Dan Karr, CEO of ValChoice, an independent platform for insurance analytics and ratings. The way a provider handles claims should also be an important consideration when researching insurance policies, Karr added.

Here are some of our top car insurance company picks for military members, veterans and their families. 

Best car insurance companies for members of the military and veterans

USAA

Active-duty military service members, veterans and their immediate family members are eligible to apply for United Services Automobile Association insurance. If you fall into one of these categories, you may find yourself eligible for cheaper rates than you might find elsewhere. Customers who switch their auto insurance policies to USAA saved $725 on average per year, according to USAA’s website. Moreover, USAA’s average annual premium for full coverage is among the most competitive, coming in at $1,209 compared to $1,771 for the national average, according to Bankrate.

The company has been around since 1922, when 25 US Army officers decided to insure each other’s vehicles. Today, the insurance company serves millions; the insurer’s low car insurance rates are a big draw, but USAA’s high customer satisfaction scores from J.D. Power surveys are also alluring. Its overall customer satisfaction score averages to 884 across US regions; higher than the industry average of 834. 

The bottom line: USAA is a worthy option to look into if you’re eligible to buy a policy.

Geico doesn’t quite match USAA’s rates: The company’s average annual premium for full coverage sits at $1,297 compared to USAA’s $1,225, according to Bankrate. Nonetheless, Geico’s rates fall well below the $1,674 national average, and its military discount makes for a good insurance choice if you’re active or retired military.

All active-duty and retired personnel, as well as members of the National Guard or Military Reserves, are eligible for up to 15% off their total insurance rate premium. Moreover, Geico offers an additional Emergency Deployment Discount to customers who deploy into a military base in imminent danger pay areas, as designated by the Department of Defense. The company has a special customer service team dedicated to military assistance, as well as a toll-free line dedicated to serving military customers — 1-800-MILITARY. 

Check out our full review of Geico Auto Insurance.

Armed Forces Insurance

Armed Forces Insurance has deep roots — it was founded in 1887 by military leaders — and while it’s not as well-known as USAA, it’s been around longer and has broader eligibility requirements, making it easier for more people to qualify for coverage.

AFI expands its coverage beyond active-duty and retired service members — and their children and spouses — to the Department of Defense civilian employees, officers of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the US Public Health Service. If you fall into one of those groups (or have in the past), AFI may be worth a look.

However, one of the most glaring differences between AFI and USAA is reflected in the companies’ customer satisfaction and ratings. While USAA routinely scores high in customer satisfaction, feedback on AFI is more divided. AM Best has given AFI a B+ financial strength rating compared to USAA’s A++. Moreover, AFI receives more than 3.5 times the complaints compared to the national industry average, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners,

Other carriers with notable discounts


Arbella

Arbella is a regional insurance company offering car, home and business insurance policies in the New England area, though its auto policies are only offered in Massachusetts and Connecticut. If you live in either of these states, Abrella is worth exploring because the company offers up to a 10% discount for any active-duty service member deployed more than 100 miles away from your vehicle.

Farmers

Farmers extends its “Affinity discount” for military customers who are active duty, active reserve, retired or honorably discharged veterans. Pair this discount with others from Farmers’ robust list, including good payer (history of paying in full, on time), multicar and ePolicy discounts, and you’re well on your way to bringing your annual premiums down.

Liberty Mutual

Liberty Mutual is another insurer that offers a robust set of discounts, including one that extends to active, retired and reserve members of the US armed forces. Though Liberty Mutual’s average annual premium for full coverage sits a bit higher than the national average using the military discount along with homeowner, bundling multicar, good student or early shopper discounts can help make its policies more affordable. 

Best car insurance for military and veterans, compared

Company Benefits A.M. Best Financial Strength Rating*
USAA Family coverage, low rates, award-winning service and coverage. A++
Geico Military personnel, emergency deployment, dedicated hotline for military customers. A++
Armed Forces Insurance Department of Defense civilian employees and NOAA and PHS commissioned officers eligible. B+

*A.M. Best financial strength rating scale runs from D (lowest) to A++ (highest).

FAQs

What is the best car insurance for military members?

The best carrier will differ for everyone, depending on your specific situation, how much coverage and what kinds of coverage you want. According to our research, USAA and Geico offer among the most competitive rates out there for service members, and they both cover a wide range of coverage options and discounts to help formulate a policy that fits your needs and budget.

Whichever auto insurer you choose, your military service may potentially mean savings. For that reason, it’s important to always check your eligibility and inquire about the rates and discounts that service members, veterans and their families can get.

What should you do when applying for car insurance as a service member or veteran?

  • Look for quotes from a variety of insurance companies. Make sure to include companies that offer military discounts, as well as those that only serve the military.
  • Choose the plan that makes the most sense for you, based on eligible car insurance discounts, the company’s customer service rating, auto claims satisfaction, coverage options and the final price.
  • Gather documented proof of your identity and military service such as your military ID or DD-214 (or the service of your family member, along with proof of relation).
  • Submit the appropriate documents to your insurer of choice, then wait for final approval.

How can you save on car insurance as a veteran?

Some carriers only serve members of the military, such as USAA and AFI. These insurers generally have competitive rates compared to other mainstream carriers available to the general public. If USAA and AFI don’t serve your needs, mainstream carriers like Geico, Liberty Mutual and Farmers also offer discounts for military members. If you pair a low premium rate with a variety of discounts, including a military discount, you may be able to bring your annual premiums down substantially and save on car insurance in the long run.

How do you get a military discount on car insurance? What documents do you need to show you’re eligible?

The requirements to receive a military discount differ from insurer to insurer. For example, while Geico simply gives all active-duty military and retired personnel up to a 15% discount, Arbella will only apply up to a 10% discount if you’re an active-duty military member that is deployed more than 100 miles away from your vehicle. You’ll want to check what each insurer’s parameters are for qualifying for a military discount. 

That said, the documents to prove your eligibility for military discounts are similar across the board. You’ll likely need to show one or more of the following documents:

  • DD-214
  • NGB-22
  • Military orders if you are actively serving
  • Academy appointment letter or ROTC contract
  • Discharge certificate
  • Letters or statements showing membership in an eligible military group, such as the Navy League of the United States or the Armed Forces Benefit Association.

CNET reviews insurance carriers and products by exhaustively comparing them across set criteria developed for each category. For auto insurance, we examine average annual premium rates for full coverage, consumer complaints, collision repair scores, the carrier’s financial strength, auto claims satisfaction and overall customer satisfaction. For this list, we also investigated available discounts for military members, veterans and their families. Our data comes from a multitude of sources. 

Auto insurance rates come from Bankrate, which gathers data using Quadrant Information Services. We also use both J.D. Power annual surveys that collect data on customer auto claims satisfaction and overall customer satisfaction.

Consumer complaints are taken from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, which collects consumer complaints across states, indexing complaints on a scale that takes into account the industry average. We collect the financial strength rating of each carrier from the A.M. Best Rating.

Last, we collected collision repair scores from the Crash Network Insurer Report Card, which collects data from collision repair professionals, including mechanics, to gauge the quality of collision claims service from insurance carriers.

Exclusive: Hyundai shares first look at the much-awaited Ioniq 6 electric sedan – TalkOfNews.com

Hyundai shares first look at the much-awaited Ioniq 6 electric sedan

#Hyundai #shares #muchawaited #Ioniq #electric #sedan

Forward-looking: Hyundai is slowly climbing in EV market share in the US and Europe, and it has grand ambitions to capture seven percent of the global EV market by 2030. While a full reveal is scheduled for next month, the South Korean automaker is already teasing everyone with a first look at the much-awaited Ioniq 6 all-electric sedan.

Not too long ago, Hyundai was in talks with Apple to build an electric car. The South Korean automaker seemed interested in lending its expertise to the Cupertino giant, which had long been rumored to be working on a self-driving car. However, those discussions quickly fell apart as Apple executives were worried about information leaks. Similarly, Hyundai executives remained divided on whether or not they saw Apple as a great fit for a potential partnership.

Earlier this year, Hyundai stopped research and development on combustion engines, adding to a growing list of companies committed to going all-electric in the coming years. During its 2022 CEO Investor Day forum, the Hyundai Motor Group presented its bold electrification roadmap through 2030 that includes no less than 17 new battery-powered electric vehicles.

Today, Hyundai offered the first look at its upcoming all-electric sedan, the Ioniq 6. It looks a lot like the Prophecy concept EV it showcased back in 2020, and as noted by Top Gear, it seems to be inspired by classic, streamlined designs from the 1920s and 1930s, such as the Stout Scarab or the Tatra 87.

Details are scarce now, as Hyundai wants to make a full reveal on July 14. Still, the company did tease an ultra-low drag coefficient of just 0.21, which is among the lowest you can get with most cars on the market today. That’s thanks to the streamlined design with a low nose and active air flaps, among other things.

The Ioniq 6 shares the same E-GMP platform as the Ioniq 5 crossover, which is rated for up to 315 miles on a single charge, and since the Ioniq 5 is a smaller, low-drag car, it will not only be cheaper but might also offer more range.

The cocoon-shaped interior features sustainable materials, and a couple of touchscreens give it a futuristic look. However, Hyundai design chief Sangyup Lee told Ars Technica the company opted for physical buttons for things like audio and climate controls.

“The touchscreen is great when this car is [in] stationary condition, but when you’re moving, touchscreens can be dangerous. So we always think about the right balance, user experience, and the buttons and the combination with the voice activation together. In the future, obviously, voice activation is going to play the major role versus touchscreen, but this is still in transition. For us, anything that relates to the safety, we use hardware. Anything not related to safety will use a touch interface.”

Production of the Ioniq 6 is expected to start next month in South Korea. In the meantime, Hyundai is also spending $10 billion to accelerate electrification and autonomous vehicle development in the US, $5.5 billion of which will go towards building a battery manufacturing facility in Georgia.

Exclusive: Substack CEO says he’s ‘very sorry’ about laying off 13 people – TalkOfNews.com

Substack CEO says he’s ‘very sorry’ about laying off 13 people

#Substack #CEO #hes #laying #people

Substack is the latest tech company to announce layoffs, with the company’s CEO Chris Best tweeting on Wednesday that he’s letting 13 workers go. According to Axios, that’s around 14 percent of Substack’s workforce. In his letter and follow-up tweets, Best cites “market conditions” as the reason behind the layoffs.

He also admits that the move may be a surprise to some employees. “Not so long ago, I told you all that our plan was to grow the team and not do layoffs,” he says, also noting that the company is “still hiring for specific key roles” and has money saved. However, Best says that the company needs to change tactics, as it could be facing “an extended period” where the economy goes from bad to worse. He says that the layoffs are one of several changes the company has made to make sure it’s in “a strong financial position.”

According to The New York Times, some of the employees laid off were involved in human resources and writer support. The report also says that Substack recently halted efforts to secure funding from investors, but that its revenue is still growing.

In April, Substack faced a minor controversy around its hiring efforts when its vice president of communications tweeted a hiring link while noting a specific type of employee she said the company didn’t want. “If you’re a Twitter employee who’s considering resigning because you’re worried about Elon Musk pushing for less regulated speech… please do not come work here,” she said. The company has historically said that it places a lot of importance on free speech.

Substack is far from the only company laying off a significant percentage of its workers in the past month or two. Companies like Tesla, Netflix, Klarna, Better.com, and Cameo have all cut jobs, as have several large crypto firms.
