The course has been specifically designed for participants with a wide range of abilities.
The world we know is about to end. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions will sweep the globe causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. The only way to survive is to buy an Evac Pass, track the virus and get out before it is too late.
In a matter of months society will crumble and San Diego will be first of many cities to fall. Only a few will escape. Some won’t even try.

Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and director Chris Nolan from “The Dark Knight Rises” turned up at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday to introduce new footage from the film.
Warners however has swiftly been pulling Youtube and video rips of the broadcast from the Net as fast as they’ve gone up, though low-res copies are still viewable if you search and it’s pretty epic.
Meanwhile Collider came across an apparent runtime listing for the film on the official AMC site.
The website lists “The Dark Knight Rises” coming in at a whopping 165 minutes (2hrs 45min), 12 minutes longer than the 153 minute runtime of “The Dark Knight”, which itself was 12 minutes longer than “Batman Begins” at 141 minutes.
After their success with the six-film “Avengers” marathon screenings, it’s no surprise that AMC has announced a Dark Knight Marathon for the evening of July 19th with back-to-back screenings of all three Nolan-directed Bat films. Tickets for that go on sale from June 11th from AMC Theatres.
Finally today, scribe David S. Goyer revealed in a recent interview with Empire that after “The Dark Knight” came out, Warner execs were thinking of getting Leonardo DiCaprio to play The Riddler in ‘Rises’ until Nolan decided on using Bane as the villain.

Spartacus: War of the Damned, the upcoming third season of Starz’s Spartacus TV series, will be its last, according to a report at IGN.
Despite being a fan-favorite, the series has faces an uphill climb, with ratings problems and the death of a showrunner along the way. The choice to rename each subsequent series has also made the series somewhat harder to keep track of, as DVRs will not “remember” it from season to season.
All that said, the series will have the opportunity to wrap up its plot before it goes off-air. In the interview, show creator Steven S. DeKnight said,“Starz always does the unexpected. This show has been challenged, to say the least, in many, many ways. We’ve faced many difficulties and tragedies on the show. My original plan was to attack the show in a five- to seven-season arc. Once we got into it and after Andy [Whitfield]’s passing and looking at the historical story of Spartacus, we came to the decision to basically end on a high note.“We certainly could have continued for a few more seasons and stretched it out, but we really wanted to end high and not feel like we were treading water – and really just condense the rest of the history into one amazing ten-episode, badass final season,” he continued. “You know, the whole show was a huge risk from the start for Starz, and it was another huge risk when I decided to try to keep the show going after Andy’s passing. Any normal studio would have just cancelled the show at that point and not risk the financial downside of it not working. But Starz, thankfully, really stuck by the show, and they really wanted it to be told all the way to the end. They didn’t want to cheat the viewers and just suddenly pull the plug. So they gave us this opportunity to wrap up the story, and we’re certainly taking that opportunity and running with it. This is by far the biggest season we’ve ever attempted.”
Hello friends, this isn’t easy for me to say so I’m just gonna get it out..I found out last week that I have a brain tumor and it has to come out in the next week or so. Being a freelance artist I unfortunately have no health insurance. My art dealer Mike Alexander… Mga1wars@aol.com will be selling all of my art at discounted rates and he along with my good friend Ale Garza will be excepting donations. [You] can also find them both on my Facebook page. I’m scared but I will get through this but will be out of work for awhile. I hate to ask but anything helps…
Nome is an artist who’s done work for Aspen, DC and Wildstorm in his relatively brief career to date. This story is both sad and scary (I can’t imagine how I’d react if I found out I had a brain tumor that had to be removed within a week); I hope it ends well, with Nome healthy and not in piles of debt. His dealer Mike Alexander’s website is here, if you want to buy art to help out.

DC Comics has announced that in next week’s Earth 2 #2, Green Lantern Alan Scott will be shown to be gay.
“I’m very proud to be introducing Alan Scott into DC Comics-The New 52,said series writer James Robinson. “He was my favorite Golden Age character and one I’m very familiar with so I’m really excited to be updating him for a contemporary readership.
“However, I think old-time readers will be pleasantly surprised by how, in some ways, I’m trying to show the ‘classic’ Alan Scott at the same time. He’s still the same dynamic, heroic guy he was. He’s still the head of a media empire like he was in his prior version, but of course with the form of media changing and evolving with the times. And in many ways, his origin mirrors the original one also. Oh, and on Earth 2 there is only one Green Lantern, so Alan’s title is The Green Lantern. Alan’s sexuality is just one facet of him, along with his innate goodness, valor, charisma and skill at leadership that makes him the perfect man to wield the power of the green light in the world of Earth 2.
“Before starting work on #1, the first document I had to work from was the character breakdowns for our primary players,said Earth 2 artist Nicola Scott.With Alan the brief was very clear. He needed to be a big, strapping, handsome man that everyone would instinctively follow and love. No short order but right up my alley. Alan strikes me as an incredibly open, honest and warm man, a natural leader and absolutely the right choice to be Guardian of the Earth. His sexuality is incidental. Every time I draw him I love him even more.”
It sounds like Alan Scott was the only “safe” choice they had. I am sure this will get less of an outcry than if any modern day hero would have been outed.
Alan Horn is set to replace Rich Ross as chairman of the Walt Disney Studios from June 11th reports Variety.
Disney chief Bob Iger made the announcement Thursday afternoon, one that so far has met with a good response. Horn served as COO of Warner Bros. Entertainment for twelve years, a conservative leader who is a familiar face in the studio system and filmmaker-friendly – quite different to the outgoing Ross whose TV background made him something of an outsider.
The 69-year-old Horn is also a better fit for the studio’s mandate of focusing on global day-and-date tentpole family properties that will benefit the rest of the company’s divisions through TV shows, video games, music, merchandise, web properties and theme park rides.
Before Warners, Horn co-founded Castle Rock Entertainment and served as president and COO of 20th Century Fox Film Corporation. Horn said he has no initial plans to overhaul the executive line-up at Disney and/or bring in his own staff.
