YouPorn’s Team YP esports squad is back — and hitting Overwatch

I mean ... the dude already has a porn 'stache.

The porn pros still want to play.

YouPorn is sponsoring a professional Overwatch esports squad as part of its Team YP esports group. The roster includes several new faces and the surprise addition of Street Fighter V pro Valmaster, who is going to attempt to compete in both Capcom’s fighting game and Blizzard’s class-based team shooter. This marks Team YP’s return after encountering some difficulty participating in certain tournaments following bans from organizations like ESL due to the squad’s affiliation with an adult-video website last April.

Esports is a growing industry that industry intelligence firm Newzoo predicts will generate as much as $696 million in revenues this year. Overwatch, which only debuted in 2016, will likely play a major role in that growth as it has quickly caught on with an esports audience, and Blizzard is rolling out the Overwatch League to cities around the world.

And Team YP is standing proud and erect to participate in those kinds of events.

“Although it took a little longer than anticipated, we are thrilled to finally be able to announce the new team” YouPorn vice president Brad Burns said in a statement. “We’ve seen how strong they are in their day-to-day and that makes it easy for us to have all the confidence in the world in them” Burns continued, “but we absolutely cannot wait to see what they do in this tournament.”

The new Team YP will compete at the Montpellier Esports Show on February 25 and February 26 as part of that event’s Overwatch tournament. Moving ahead, the group will look to participate in as many official events as possible. The ESL still has it banned, but that’s not going to stop Team YP from grasping the esports scene and yanking on it until everyone takes notice.

Kevlar cartilage could help you recover from joint injuries

It can be difficult to fully recover from knee injuries or other damage to your joints, if just because there hasn't been an artificial replacement for cartilage that can withstand as much punishment as the real thing. That may not be an issue in the long run, though: scientists have developed a Kevlar-based hydrogel that behaves like natural cartilage. It mixes a network of Kevlar nanofibers with polyvinyl alcohol to absorb water at rest (like real cartilage does in idle moments) and become extremely resistant to abuse, but releases it under stress -- say, a workout at the gym.

You don't even need a lot of it to replicate a human body's sturdiness and overall functionality. A material with 92 percent water is about as tough as real cartilage, while a 70 percent mix is comparable to rubber. Previous attempts at simulating cartilage couldn't hold enough water to transport nutrients to cells, which made them a poor fit for implants.

There's a long way to go before the material becomes useful. Researchers are hoping to patent the substance and find companies to make it a practical reality. The implications are already quite clear, mind you. If it works as well in patients as it does in lab experiments, it could lead to cartilage implants that are roughly as good as the real tissue they replace. A serious knee injury might not put an end to your running days.
