Ever since the pandemic hit, Nintendo has been struggling to keep up with Switch and Switch Lite demand. However, according to an early August GameSpot report, Switch console production is back in full swing — or close to it, at least. That jibes with what we’ve seen over that past few weeks, with the console popping up at online stores like Best Buy and Amazon at its regular $300 price tag.

Of course, it still sells out within minutes. But now that we’re seeing it in stock at stores on a fairly regular basis, we’re trying to keep closer track. We’ll update this story frequently, but you’ll want to click through below since the inventory status often changes on a minute-by-minute basis.

Blue whales switch to daytime singing before migrating — ScienceDaily

The blue whale is the largest animal on Earth. It’s also among the loudest.

“Sound is a vital mode of communication in the ocean environment, especially over long distances,” said William Oestreich, a graduate student in biology at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station. “Light, or any sort of visual cue, is often not as effective in the ocean as it is on land. So many marine organisms use sound for a variety of purposes, including communicating and targeting food through echolocation.”

Although whale songs have been studied for decades, researchers have had limited success in deciphering their meaning. Now, by recording both individual whales and their greater populations in the Northeast Pacific, researchers from Stanford and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have identified patterns in the trills and bellows of blue whales that indicate when the animals are migrating from their feeding grounds off the North American coast

Last Chance To Grab Free Nintendo Switch Jump Rope Game

Back in June, Nintendo released a small, free fitness game on the Switch eShop called Jump Rope Challenge. If you’ve yet to download it, your time to do so is quickly running out, as the game will only be available on the digital storefront until the end of the month.

As the company previously announced, Jump Rope Challenge is being removed from the eShop on September 30. It’s unclear if it will be offered again in the future, so if you’re interested in grabbing it, you should do so before that date.
