In Boston, another Skanska team at work on a 17-story office tower had been on site for more than eight months, and was six to eight weeks into the excavation phase when it revealed a ship, sunk between 1850 and 1880, that still contained barrels of lime and items including knives, forks and plates.

Emanuel Maiberg (Motherboard) embedded with The Coalition dev team in the final week sprint to the release of Gears 4.

What the average player doesn’t realize, but is absolutely critical to the process of making games, is that the second purpose of triage meetings is to identify the bugs the team has no intention of fixing.

Fergusson told me about a bug in the first Gears that covered the mountains in the background of the level in a black texture if the player shot them.

“The team in my office were hand-wringing and saying ‘What are we going to do?’ and I said ‘Punt. No one's shooting the pistol at the background. This is not something we need to worry about,” Fergusson said. “The lead programmer looked at me and was like ‘What the hell?’ But if you want to ship the highest quality product you can, that means making smart decisions, not arbitrary ones.”

We are currently in the midst of another clambering epoch. The city has 21 buildings with roof heights above 800 feet; seven of them have been completed in the past 15 years (and three of those the past 36 months). In this special New York Issue, we explore the high-altitude archipelago that spreads among the top floors of these 21 giants.

Some say wolves were domesticated around 10,000 years ago, while others say 30,000. Some claim it happened in Europe, others in the Middle East, or East Asia. Some think early human hunter-gatherers actively tamed and bred wolves. Others say wolves domesticated themselves, by scavenging the carcasses left by human hunters, or loitering around campfires, growing tamer with each generation until they became permanent companions.

Ironically, the same Icelandic search team that was dispatched more than four decades ago to try and rescue the crew at the crash site is now being dispatched every single day to rescue tourists trying to find the crash site.

But even as viral images and music videos are luring crowds to come find this dead plane, the story behind its final descent has remained a mystery. No one seems to know why this thing crashed, why it was abandoned, and why it’s still lying on the beach.
