The game also has a multiplayer mode, with both 8-player online and 2-player split-screen offline available. There are 15 tracks in the standard game, most of which are located in a lifesize set of a city (shown under construction in the tutorial). Two tracks could be acquired as downloadable content.
Some scenes were deleted, a Japanese VHS version included two of the deleted scenes. In the first one, Stone and Durkin go to Durkin's apartment where they talk with his girlfriend Robin (played by actress Roberta Eaton, who is still credited in the film even though her scene was deleted). The second deleted scene features more dialogue between Stone and Durkin at the same time as the "monster" is killing a jogger and ripping his heart out. Stone and Durkin find the man's corpse afterward. These extra scenes are included as bonus features on the Blu-ray of the film released by 101 Films.
Split-Second Kindness is a passport-sized book filled with techniques that make a difference for patients, even when time is limited. Practitioners are reminded of what can be accomplished in two minutes, one minute, thirty seconds or ten seconds.
Psychophysiological "stress" underpins many conditions including anxiety, depression, phobias, chronic fatigue syndrome and non-specific musculoskeletal pain such as fibromyalgia. In this article we develop an understanding of chronic psychophysiological stress from a psychological educational perspective, by drawing on supporting evidence that significant emotional events in early life (traumatic and benign) can influence health and well-being later in life. We suggest that traumatic events instigate psychophysiological "stress" responses and the formation of emotional memory images (EMIs) within very short time frames, i.e., "split-second learning." Once formed these emotional memories are triggered in daily living "re-playing" psychophysiological stress responses, resulting in chronic psychophysiological "dis-ease." We describe a novel therapeutic approach to scan clients for mannerisms signifying a subconscious "freeze-like" stress response that involves the client as a curious observer within their own experience, feeding back the non-verbal cues as they arrive in the moment. By breaking down the observable fragments of their split-second Pavlovian response to the trigger, clients can detach their EMI from the psychophysiology stress response, i.e., "split-second unlearning." Our split-second unlearning model recognizes the EMI as a barrier to moving forward and needs to be unlearned before the client can become naturally adaptive again. We argue that this approach places the client at the center of the work without the need of getting bogged down in a life-long narrative.
You Can't Outrun the CompetitionPowerPlays have a second use: They can be used to alter the environment. Sometimes this is the result of environmental damage; for example, detonating a parked tanker alters the track by blocking a previously accessible area and opening a new one. PowerPlays also open shortcuts, so that you may shave time off the clock.
Steam-Powered Engine Split/Second has many features you'd expect from a Steam release, including Steam Cloud saves and Steam Trading Cards. Sadly, the only official multiplayer that's available is local, split-screen play, as Split/Second's servers crashed and burned a few years back. That said, the PC gaming community has come to the rescue with a fix(Opens in a new window).
The cars zip around the tracks at a steady 30 frames per second. PC gaming diehards may decry the lack of 60 frames-per-second action, but the vehicles move smoothly and quickly through the highly detailed courses. Unfortunately, screen tearing pops up from time to time, especially in cutscenes. The tearing isn't awful, but it is noticeable.
Consider what happens when we start putting a foot forward and then realize we need to change the action to avoid stepping on a patch of ice. If the decision to change the movement is made even just a few milliseconds too late, we cannot stop our foot from landing on the ice.
But after mapping brain activity in humans and monkeys, Prof. Courtney and her team found that a split-second decision to change, stop, or reverse an action that is already underway involves very fast coordination between an area in the premotor cortex and two in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. 041b061a72
