During Sunday's NFL game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Philadelphia Eagles, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson makes a pretty nice move.

After taking the ball and running with it, he makes a quick pitch off to the side while faking out the defender.

Looks pretty cool, but it probably wasn't legal.

This should have been a penalty for an illegal forward pass, but it looks like he got away with it.

Just for fun, I can also fit a linear function to the data (for straight parts) to get the velocity in that direction.

During the toss, Wilson is running at 4.55 m/s (10.2 mph) while the ball has an x-velocity of 1.27 m/s.

At this point, it’s pretty hard to imagine that there are many gamers out there who haven’t yet played Minecraft, but if you count yourself among that small group and you happen to have a subscription to Xbox Game Pass, now’s your chance to finally see what all the fuss is about.

As it promised it would do back in March, Microsoft added Minecraft to Xbox Game Pass today, letting anyone with an active subscription download and play it without shelling out any additional cash first.

Ever since buying up Minecraft creator Mojang back in 2014, Microsoft has focused heavily on bringing the game to as many platforms as possible.

Regardless of the device you want to play on, there’s a decent shot that it supports Minecraft in one form or another, so as one of the biggest titles in Microsoft’s portfolio, it isn’t really a surprise to see it head to Xbox Game Pass today.

Microsoft assures that that the version of Minecraft joining Game Pass is indeed the Bedrock Edition, which offers up cross-platform multiplayer on consoles and devices that allow it.

You’ll also get the same updates every other platform gets at the same time they get them when you play Minecraft through Game Pass.

Botanists will be positively blooming thanks to Microsoft, which has worked with a team of scientists to create a system to help flower-fanciers identify species in a snap.

The Smart Flower Recognition System will help botanists stalk flowers across the world using Microsoft's blossoming library of some 2.6 million floral photographs.

The project came about after random cross-pollination between Microsoft Research Asia chief researcher Yong Rui and botanists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Rui told the academics Redmond could use image-matching to help the botanists identify the spread of flowers throughout China, albeit with some pruning of its vast image banks.

Microsoft Research Asia senior research program manager Guobin Wu says a 20-layer deep convolutional neural network was cultivated alongside learnable filters to identify slight variations between flowers.

"During the forward pass, each filter is convolved across the width and height of the input volume, computing the dot product between the entries of the filter and the input," Wu says.

We're expecting some imminent changes to Microsoft's Game Pass service, but right now the company is offering something of a bargain: three months of Xbox Game Pass, with more than 100 games available, for just $1.

This is part of Microsoft's broader Spring Sale, which includes some significant discounts on both Xbox and PC games, consoles, and accessories.

One month of Gold is also available for $1.

Because nothing's ever easy, the exact deals on offer depend on which day you want to buy.

Most deals run through April 22, though a few go a little shorter or longer, and some deals aren't available until next week.

Aside from the Game Pass, the other standout is $100 off certain Xbox One X models, bringing them down to $399.

Microsoft is reportedly planning a couple of new subscription services for gamers, per Brad Sams and WalkingCat.

First up is a "Game Pass Ultimate" that combines an Xbox Live Gold subscription with a GamePass subscription.

Xbox Live Gold is routinely on sale, but it typically costs around $60 when bought annually or $10/month when bought month by month.

Game Pass is a flat $10 per month (though there's a special offer at the moment giving one month for one dollar).

The Ultimate subscription is going to be $15/month, making it a break-even proposition for annual subscribers (or even a slight price increase, if you can get Gold for less than $60) but a nice discount for monthly subs.

Second, Microsoft will reportedly soon have a Game Pass subscription for Windows, too.

The juggernaut that is Game of Thrones has been the talk of the TV town for a good few months now and finally season 8 has arrived.

Not surprising that fans have been falling over themselves trying to find ways to watch Game of Thrones for free.

The problem is that unless you venture to nefarious means (ok, so perhaps not Cersei levels of nefarious), you have to pay to watch the final series of Game of Thrones.

Unless, that is, you take advantage of Now's latest broadband and TV offer.

That's because Now is throwing in six whole months of Now Entertainment Pass - and that means every episode as it goes out or on catch-up - when you sign up for any of its current cheap broadband deals.

They start at just £18 per month, venturing up to £25 a month for fibre and £30 bills if you want its very fastest broadband plan.

Microsoft announced a new batch of titles coming to Xbox Game Pass throughout April, including some third-party heavy hitters like Monster Hunter: World and Prey.

Game Pass gives subscribers access to download a growing library of games.

Sony has a similar service with for PlayStation 4 called PlayStation Now, but Xbox Game Pass is outclassing it in terms of library quality.

Nintendo only offers retro games in any kind of subscription-based service, and those come with its general online gaming plan.

Microsoft adds its first-party exclusives to Game Pass the same day they launch at retail.

Those exclusives, however, have been scarce.

It may not be long before we see Microsoft combine two Xbox subscription services into one monthly bundle.

We’re talking, of course, of Xbox Live and Xbox Game Pass, the first being more or less essential to play games on Xbox One and the second being a still-relatively new subscription service that Microsoft has been promoting heavily.

If you’re subscribed to both, it may not be long before you’ll have the opportunity to combine those two subscriptions into one and potentially save some cash.

Rumor has it that Microsoft is plotting to launch a new monthly subscription called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which would offer both Game Pass and Live for $14.99 per month.

Currently, monthly subscriptions to each service run $9.99 per month, so the cost of Game Pass Ultimate would save around $5 per month.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate = Xbox Live Gold + Xbox Game Pass.

Six Nations Ireland's new center partner scored one goal each in an entertaining 39-31 victory over Japan at Dublin's Aviva Stadium.Six Nations Rugby fans can buy Ireland Six Nations Tickets from our website at discounted prices.In Ireland's first test match since third in the Guinness Six Nations in 2021, Chris Farrell and Stuart McCloskey whitewashed in the first half and helped tame an extremely creative team.With some of the British and Irish Lions' regular starters gone, including centers Robbie Henshaw and Bundee Aki, and Garry Ringrose injured, the new-looking midfielder took advantage of this opportunity to shine.IRELAND’S CENTRES MAKE THE CHANGE  After the Japanese team kicked the penalty early, the Irish team scored the first try of the game via Farrell after nine consecutive passes, creating a breakthrough space for the striker.Joey Carbery changed his efforts, but Michael Leitch reacted a few minutes later, passing the whitewash from behind the floating hammer.The Japanese team seemed to be in a dominant position.

With 20 minutes approaching, the Japanese team took a 10-7 lead.

Good pressure from the Cherry Blossoms almost led to their second attempt in the afternoon.Timothy Lafaele put in a force shot from Yu Tamura pass and passed through a narrow gap before scoring under the post, but Tamura's pass was judged a forward pass, and the attempt was suspended.The third attempt in the afternoon finally passed McCloskey.

He used Ireland's overlapping advantages to make contact with Jacob Stockdale in the corner and created enough space for him to land.A failed conversion attempt meant the Ireland striker took a 12-10 lead.

After changing the attack point in midfield, a pass from Tamura created space for Siosaia Fifita, who passed the ball to Lafaele who scored the corner.Finlay Bealham completed the halftime rugby match and after a series of checkers that followed, the close-fitting props crossed the line from close range.After the break, Tamura passed the ball to the winger as he ran at full speed on the left.

Fifita put in an excellent effort for the Japanese team, then Fifita recovered and passed the whitewash to give the Japanese team the lead again.The conversion was missed and the situation in Japan worsened when Josh van der Flier made a pass from another short draft pick and after Jamison Gibson-Park made a terrible carry to get Ireland to the try-line.HOSTS TAKE CONTROL Stockdale then tried his own attempt.
