Kuato Studios “This is the most personal project I’ve ever been involved with, not just because of my love of the Marvel Universe, but also because as a child with undiagnosed dyslexia, school, and particularly reading, was incredibly challenging for me,” Mark Horneff, CEO of Kuato Studio, said in a statement.  Avengers: Endgame toys, merchandise to re-create the MCU capstone 1 Share your voice The Marvel Hero Tales app aims to help kids learn to read and write using comics.  Kuato Studios Learning to read and write can be daunting for kids, but with the new Marvel Hero Tales mobile app from Kuato Studios, little ones hopefully can get some help from Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and other Marvel greats.The free app, available on iOS and Android, encourages kids from 7 to 11 to write their own Marvel stories while developing their language and reading skills. The Marvel Hero Tales app lets kids follow superheroes like Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, Captain America and Captain Marvel as they “level up” by completing activities such as word collection and comprehension of words. Players can then use these words to write their own story by building sentences inside a comic book panel. Their choice of words directly affects the outcome of the superhero’s mission. The final result is a personalized comic book that can be shared with friends and family. 18 Photos Horneff remembers being given a copy of Spider-Man at age 8 and  reading it cover to cover.” “Those adventures fed not only my imagination, but my confidence as a storyteller and my passion for reading,” Horneff said. “My hope is that Marvel Hero Tales will inspire a new generation of Marvel readers and storytellers, and in some small way, allow that 8-year-old to repay some of the debt I owe to Peter Parker.” Captain Marvel Marvel Spiderman Captain America Tags Mobile Apps TV and Movies Iron Man’s Avengers: Endgame cabin is yours to rent on Airbnb Own a piece of Avengers: Endgame Jessica Jones season 3: New trailer, photos and release date revealed Comment More superheroeslast_img read more

first_imgOil prices jumped more than $2 a barrel on Tuesday, breaking out of a month-long trading range on technical buying and industry talk as well as U.S. government data suggesting the global supply glut could be ebbing.Global benchmark Brent crude LCOc1 rallied for a third straight day and closed above $50 a barrel the first time in a month. In post-settlement trade, it briefly jumped $3 after an industry group reported an unexpected weekly drop in U.S. crude stockpiles.Earlier, Brent rose on a U.S. government forecast for tighter oil supplies, and indications that Russia, Saudi Arabia and other big producers might pursue further talks to support the market. A weaker dollar and chart-based buying also bolstered crude prices.Some dealers were convinced there was now little chance that Brent and the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) benchmark for U.S. crude would slide back to the 6-1/2-year lows touched in August.”We have reduced the probability of a return to the $37 to $38 area per nearby WTI,” said veteran oil analyst Jim Ritterbusch. “We will maintain a longstanding view that price declines below this support level are virtually off of the table.”Brent settled up $2.67, or 5.4 percent, at $51.92, breaking out of the $47 to $50 band it had held since early September. Its session peak, a penny shy of $52, was the highest since Sept. 3, pushing three-day gains past 7 percent.WTI closed up $2.27, or 4.9 percent, at $48.53 a barrel.After settlement, Brent and WTI rose more when the American Petroleum Institute reported a weekly U.S. crude stockpile draw of 1.2 million barrels. [API/S] Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast a second straight weekly increase in crude inventories.Official stockpile numbers will be published on Wednesday by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). [EIA/S]”Steeper U.S. production declines over the near term have created a bid for oil prices,” said Chris Jarvis, analyst at Caprock Risk Management in Frederick, Maryland.In its monthly supply-demand report on Tuesday, the EIA said global oil demand will grow in 2016 by the most in six years while non-OPEC supply stalls.Oil executives at an industry conference in London warned of a “dramatic” decline in U.S. output that could lead to a price spike if fuel demand escalates.Russia’s energy minister said Russia and Saudi Arabia discussed the oil market in a meeting last week.OPEC Secretary-General Abdullah al-Badri said in London that OPEC and non-OPEC members should work together to reduce the global supply glut.Iran’s crude sales were on track to hit seven-month lows as its main Asian customers bought less.last_img read more
