The new virtual reality smartphone game Pokemon Go could be a game-changer for downtown DeKalb businesses.

The game is currently the top-grossing app in the Apple and Android app stores. That’s after being on the market for less than a week.

Pokemon Go requires the player to walk around in real life in order to catch different Pokemon creatures from the player’s smart phone. One function of the game is the ability to add a “lure module,” which attracts Pokemon to a specific location for a half hour at a time so people can come by and catch them.

Track and field's world governing body has unanimously decided to bar Russian athletes from competing in the upcoming summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro amid allegations of state-sponsored doping.

The International Association of Athletics Federations made the announcement at a press conference Friday in Vienna.

"Because the system in Russia has been tainted by doping from top level and down, we cannot trust that what we call and what people might call clean athletes really are clean," said Rune Andersen, head of the task force that provided recommendations to the IAAF.
