Chrysler recalls Jeep SUVs; GM recalls Cadillac, Buick sedans...





.

GM's recall involves certain 2010 and 2011 model year Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne sedans with V8 engines. The cars have alternator cables that can wear through a power steering line, leading to a fluid leak. A leak could cause a loss of power steering and lead to a crash.
Chrysler's recall involves certain 2008 model year Jeep Liberty SUVs. Water could get into the windshield wiper motor and stop the wipers, which could reduce a driver's visibility and lead to a crash.

Canceled: MISSOURI AMBER ALERT: Missing Mo. toddler found safe in Iowa

A 2-year-old girl who was taken from her western Missouri home Thursday morning by a woman claiming to a child welfare worker was found safe about nine hours later in Iowa, authorities said.
Two people were with Syah D. Duffey when Iowa State Highway Patrol officers stopped a vehicle about 5:45 p.m. near the Des Moines suburb of Mitchellville, the Cass County Sheriff's Department said.

No other information about the stop or the people with the girl was immediately released. Mitchellville is about 210 miles northeast of the Cass County town of East Lynne, where Syah lives with her mother.

Authorities had issued an Amber Alert for Syah around 2:30 p.m., six hours after the woman came to the home in East Lynne, about 35 miles south of Kansas City, and drove away with the child in a dirty white van with Iowa license plates.

Syah's grandmother, Karrie Ratkewicz, told local media outlets that the family believed the woman has ties to the girl's father, who hasn't met the child but talks to her on the telephone frequently. Ratkewicz said the girl's father lives in Iowa.

Cass County sheriff's Cpl. Kevin Tieman said the case was being treated as a stranger abduction because the woman, who claimed to be an Iowa child welfare worker, wasn't known to anyone in Syah's family.

Tieman said Syah's mother didn't immediately contact authorities because she was trying to verify with family members why the girl was taken.

"We now know it was not any legitimate reason the child would have been taken, but the mother wasn't able to confirm that until 90 minutes later," Tieman said.

New 'Call of Duty: Black Ops" blasts last year's sales record

"Call of Duty: Black Ops" blasted entertainment records this week by raking in $360 million in its first 24 hours on sale, a dramatic and lucrative indication that video games have cemented their place as mainstream entertainment on a par with movies, books and music.
For the hordes of devoted fans who waited at midnight Monday to get their hands on the military shooter, this is hardly a surprise. For them, popping the new "Call of Duty" into a game console is the equivalent of turning on the TV to watch the Super Bowl or sitting back with a tub of popcorn to watch the latest blockbuster movie. 

Across two years, with a budget well in the tens of millions of dollars, the developers of "Black Ops" created a world that immerses players in Cold War-era battles with settings ranging from 1960s Cuba to Vietnam and the Soviet Union. 

Though game developers see their creations as art, not everyone agrees. Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments over a California law that seeks to ban the sale of ultra-violent video games to minors. Parents' groups and politicians say games should be regulated like firearms and tobacco rather than like books and movies, which are protected by the First Amendment. A ruling is expected next year.

Many liken these games to movies - and it's an apt comparison. Along with the hyper-realistic cinematic scenery and surprise plot twists, there are well-known actors - including Gary Oldman, Ed Harris and Sam Worthington - lending their voices to the game's main characters. Also, the motion-capture technology used to track actors' bodies is the same that was used in "Avatar."

Activision Blizzard Inc. sold 5.6 million units the day "Call of Duty" went on sale, according to the company. Its predecessor, "Call of Duty, Modern Warfare 2," sold 4.7 million copies in 24 hours to reap $310 million on its first day of sale last year. Within a week, it made $550 million.

Games like "Call of Duty," "Grand Theft Auto" and "Halo" all fit into the blockbuster category, and with each sequel they only get bigger. Production budgets for these games rival those of big-screen movies, as does the marketing push behind them.
The video game audience has expanded considerably in the last five years, reaching women, young children and even senior centers. But the people who flock to "Call of Duty" and other shooters are still primarily young men, just not as young as some would think. The average U.S. game player is 34 years old, according to the Entertainment Software Association.

A big part of the appeal of "Call of Duty" is its multiplayer feature, meaning gamers can fight against someone across the country or on the other side of the world.

"Everyone thinks that games are these solitary things," said Patrick Markey, a Villanova University professor who studies video games. "But now, hooked up to the Internet, it's friends and strangers we are playing with."

"Black Ops" went on sale Tuesday in North America and the U.K. It costs $60 and works on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gaming consoles, and PCs. With that cost, games have an easier time setting dollar sales records than much less expensive movies or music.

The latest "Call of Duty" game broke records set by its predecessor a year ago. The $360 million in North American and U.K. sales on the first day is higher than any other form of entertainment - even beating box office sales of top movies in those markets over the entire opening weekend.
The game is rated M for mature - meaning it's not meant for kids under 17. It's bloody, to be sure, but new media professor Charles Palmer says that's not the main appeal.  "It's the challenge," said Palmer, who teaches at the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. "It's one of those areas that thrills and excites people."

Sports games, such as "Madden," from Electronic Arts, are also popular, as are music simulators such as "Guitar Hero." But shooters in the style of "Call of Duty" continue to be the most popular.
