TIME x The Sandbox To Open A Metaverse Version Of Times Square!

The global media brand TIME and The Sandbox are working together to create a metaverse Times Square. The partnership will see the iconic landmark recreated inside The Sandbox called TIME Square. The iconic neighbourhood of Times Square in New York City is one of the most visited places in the world.

TIME and The Sandbox hope to replicate the area in the metaverse. In the future, they also expect the location will become a top destination for socialising and a hub for art.

What is the metaverse TIME square?

TIME President Keith A Grossman revealed the partnership between TIME and The Sandbox during a Sandbox event at NFT.NYC. The development of ‘TIME Square’ is a chance to reimagine the culturally significant site within the metaverse. Built on TIME’s land in The Sandbox, there are also several opportunities to get involved in the TIME square metaverse project. 

TIMEpieces, the popular NFT and web3 project by TIME, is asking its diverse community of creators to help. Moreover, they will help identify a talented architect with the vision to help create the TIME square metaverse space.

“Our goal is to create a destination that will be the heart of the metaverse,” said Keith A. Grossman, TIME President. “Since launching TIMEPieces in September 2021, we have focused on developing a community in Web3 that benefited from the incredible 100-year legacy and access TIME has established. We are thrilled to tap into that community as we seek to find the architect for designing TIME Square in the metaverse, as we create an immersive experience with The Sandbox”.

The Sandbox continues to break boundaries in the metaverse

A subsidiary of Animoca Brands, The Sandbox is one of the biggest virtual worlds in existence. The 3D open-world game allows people to purchase virtual real estate called LAND. Additionally, within The Sandbox, you can do anything you want.

This includes meeting friends, working, visiting galleries and other entertainment venues, and much more. Furthermore, it is an essential cultural space with the metaverse.

The Sandbox continues to grow at a rapid rate and is a top destination for metaverse real estate.

“The Sandbox is seen as a ‘virtual Manhattan,’ a vibrant space alive with culture, entertainment, and brands, where anyone can discover, learn, work, meet new people, play, dance, and find amazing new opportunities,” said Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox.

TIMEPieces holders to get exclusive benefits

During the announcement, TIME confirmed that although the TIME square metaverse space is for everyone, TIMEPieces NFT holders will get exclusive benefits. 

The new destination will provide the TIMEPieces community with virtual access to several new initiatives. So far, the plans include, events, screenings of TIME Studios projects and educational experiences.

Finally TIMEPieces has proven to be a great NFT project for TIME and has allowed them to grow their web3 community organically. Now, as they enter The Sanbox, it will be interesting to see how the project develops.

Gerrit Cole’s strong outing wasted in Yankees’ no-no loss

Gerrit Cole’s strong outing wasted in Yankees’ no-no loss

This wasn’t what Gerrit Cole had in mind earlier in the week when he laughed at how being on the mound for a no-hitter has eluded him.

Cole spun a gem of a start Saturday, but wound up on the losing end because he shared the rubber with three Astros pitchers who combined on a no-hitter in a 3-0 victory over the Yankees. In a reminder of how cruel baseball can be, Cole twice took no-hitters into the middle of the game or beyond this week and wound up with a no-decision and a loss on his record (6-2).

“The cold hard truth is we got outpitched and outplayed,” Cole said. “Credit to the opponent. Magical day for them.”

Cole lost a no-hitter in the eighth inning Monday against the Rays, but the Yankees still won, which created a light moment when he joked he has never completed the job despite building a résumé with four All-Star selections and an ERA title. There was no such luck or levity Saturday when he would needed perfection — or better — to outduel Astros starter Cristian Javier and two relievers.

Instead, Cole settled for striking out eight and scattering four hits over seven innings.

“Gerrit’s just going to keep doing that,” catcher Jose Trevino said. “That’s good for us in the long run.”

Cole walked two, but did not allow a hit until back-to-back, two-out singles by Jake Meyers and Martin Maldonado in the fifth inning. He survived that jam unharmed, but his 101st pitch was his big mistake in the seventh inning of a scoreless game.

J.J. Matijevic turned on a low-inside fastball and deposited it into the right-field seats for a homer as his reward for showing patience laying off a first pitch in the dirt. The rookie first baseman’s only two career hits have been solo home runs.

“I tried to make an adjustment and I obviously overcorrected and threw the pitch into an area that he was anticipating or he wasn’t going to be late on,” Cole said. “Not the side of the plate that we were trying to go to. It was honestly just a bad miss, but I don’t want to take any credit away from the guy who put a good swing on it.”

The solace is that Cole is pitching like an ace. He has allowed one run or fewer in five of his last six starts. Matijevic’s home run snapped Cole’s 21-inning scoreless streak at home.

“Right away he was getting swing-and miss-with his heater, which was big while he was finding it those first two innings,” manager Aaron Boone said. “I thought his stuff was really good. Once he settled in, he was terrific.”

A man was charged with attempted murder of Los Angeles police officers Friday night amid protests of the Roe v. Wade reversal, cops said.

A woman was also charged with resisting police after four officers were injured following a barrage of projectiles, fireworks and a makeshift blow torch, according to officials.

The mayhem unfolded around 8:20 p.m. in Downtown Los Angeles, the LAPD said.

Michael Ortiz, 30, is accused of throwing a makeshift flame thrower at an officer, who was treated for burns, according to a Saturday press release.

Juliana Bernado, 23, allegedly attempted to steal an officer’s baton. A “less-lethal” bullet was fired at her, and she was taken into custody, police said.

“I condemn the violence against officers that occurred last night and into today,” Chief Michel Moore said.

“Individuals participating in such criminal activity are not exercising their 1st Amendment rights in protest of the Supreme Court decision, rather, they are acting as criminals.  

The Department will vigorously pursue prosecution of these individuals.”

Large scale protests in other cities large and small around the country were mostly peaceful.
