Now you can get a uni scholarship for playing video games! "Robert Morris University in Illinois has become the first college in the United States to offer scholarships to professional gamers who play League of Legends, one of the biggest PC games in the world.
The university's new scheme is now seeking to recruit high-school gamers under the principle that this League of Legends – which attracts 27 million players a day – is a sport equal to other traditional athletic pursuits like rugby and soccer." Read full article in Dazed Magazine. E.T.P. 2'

Emily Nussbaum writes in The New Yorker about watching TV on the gym: "When you watch television for work, many questions come up regarding your viewing habits. How do you watch so much? And don’t you get tired of watching? No, actually: I like television. And in my case, I have the benefit of multiple screens. There are plenty of shows that I watch on a swanky flat-screen TV with high-definition magic. There are others that I watch on a computer, either full-screen or popped out in the corner, so I can type while I watch. There are shows that I watch on my iPhone, too, lying in bed, with headphones on. This approach works nicely with Netflix, and for a Hulu catch-up on network shows that I’ve missed, and whenever I watch this way, in the darkness, I can hear the distant screams of cinephiles, which sweetens the experience all the more."
