Work as a team.”Later in the first game, a player crept up to a barrier while sophomore safety Chauncey Scissum was behind the opposite side of it. Teammates outside the fence shouted in excitement during the day’s first big highlight as the players shot each other from just a few feet away, but both remained in the game.Though as more rounds were played, strategies developed and instead of just cheering when people got shot, teammates serving as spectators gave more and more guidance to those on the field.Text by Paul Schwedelson, asst. copy editor, [email protected] is placeholder text Commentslast_img read more

Unbelievable! The IDF Has Gamified Its War Blog

first_imgThis game has existed since July. But it was not displayed yesterday, when the campaign began. Now that it’s back, the world noticed. Promoting it on the front page during this military campaign is beyond crass.An IDF spokesperson tells ReadWrite that “over the past two days the blog has experienced technical difficulties due to high traffic, and  ‘IDF Ranks’ was temporarily taken down to make necessary adjustments to our systems. In no way is ‘IDF Ranks’ meant to gamify Operation Pillar of Defense or any military actions during the operation.”The technical reason sounds plausible, although I was on the site pretty early yesterday, and I never saw a trace of it. As for whether the IDF meant to gamify the operation, by turning the game back on, they did whether they meant to or not. When asked why they turned the game back on, the spokesperson said, “We turned it on because it is an integral part of the blog and has been for four months. After the site was briefly down because of the spike in traffic, we isolated it as a potential factor and, once we rectified the technical difficulties, brought it back up again.”The fact is, someone made the conscious decision to turn the game back on after the shooting began. I just can’t imagine a justification for it. Gamification is offensive when coupon companies do it. This is a WAR. Israel is trying to enlist the people of the world in its campaign with military ranks, badges and points. Innocent people are dying on all sides, and the IDF wants to reward people for tweeting about it. A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit See Also: Israeli Defense Force Responds To Criticism Of Games On Its War BlogIt doesn’t matter what your opinion on the conflict itself is. We’re not talking about the morals of war. We’re talking about propaganda, pure and simple. This kind of marketing is manipulative and sleazy on the best of days. It’s a way for propagandists to drag your friends’ brains into something by using you. I want to write this post about apps and start-ups making dumb products sometimes. To gamify war is just absolutely unconscionable to me.This isn’t the first digital war game that’s horrified me. When America’s Army came out, before the social media age began, I thought it was the most disgusting thing I’d ever seen. But it’s abstract. It’s a recruitment tool. There’s no real-world component; it’s just designed to get people fired up. That’s awful enough. But this is check-ins for spectators watching an active, live military campaign. It makes me sick. Tags:#War Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts center_img The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Yesterday, when I wrote about the social media campaign that Israel was waging alongside its attack on Hamas, I thought it was interesting. I thought it was a straightforward and effective way of presenting the cause behind the attack. Whether you thought the offensive was right or wrong, you had to admit the propaganda’s effectiveness.Well, day two has changed matters. The IDF Blog now has atrocious gamification badges with points and rewards for sharing the content to social media. For example, if you visit the site 10 times, you get the “Consistent” badge. If you search the blog multiple times, you’re promoted to “Research Officer.” Yes, Israel has gamified war. This is absolutely horrendous.

Asus Kicks Windows RT Tablets To The Curb

first_imgAsustek Computer Inc., maker of Asus-branded computers and tablets, will no longer be selling Windows RT tablets, according to The Wall Street Journal.“It’s not only our opinion, the industry sentiment is also that Windows RT has not been successful,” Asustek Chief Executive Jerry Shen told the Journal.Shen added that the lack of compatibility with standard Windows applications also played a part in the weak sales of the Windows RT tablets. The company did take a write down for the tablets, but did not specify.Microsoft is, naturally, still committed to the RT version of the operating system, which runs on ARM-based processors. NVIDIA, Dell and even Nokia are reportedly planning to start or continue Windows RT hardware production, though with the exit of Asus, it’s anyone’s bet how long those plans will remain firm.

Prince Harry Attends Landmine Free World 2025 Reception

first_imgPrince Harry attended The Landmine Free World 2025 Reception at Kensington Palace to mark International Mine Awareness Day.The Reception was hosted by the world’s two leading landmine charities, Mines Advisory Group (MAG) and The HALO Trust, who aim to free the world of landmines by 2025.“I have seen first-hand the work of demining field teams in Cahora Bassa, Mozambique and Cuito Cuanavale, Angola and can attest to their discipline, expertise and determination,” said Prince Harry. “MAG and HALO alone have a combined workforce of 9,000 people – almost all from mine-affected communities. They, and other organisations, have the knowledge, experience and capability to realise the Treaty’s vision by 2025 or sooner.“It would take just an additional £100m each year until 2025 – the cost of a star signing for some professional football teams – to clear the world’s most affected countries of landmines; countries such as Afghanistan, Cambodia and Sri Lanka, where the debris from bygone wars denies men and women the ability to cultivate their land, feed their children and re-build their lives.“I applaud the Secretary of State and our government for their bold commitment to supporting this vital work with additional funding. I hope this example will be seen by the international community as a reminder of the commitments made in 1997 and that other countries will redouble their efforts. The sooner we are able to clear all remaining landmines the less chance there is of innocent lives being lost or changed forever.”The Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Treaty was signed 20 years ago in order to prevent the use and production of landmines across the world – but there are still countries contaminated with the devices.Several key figures in the signing of the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Treaty attended the reception, alongside other senior representatives of governments who support international mine action.The Chief Executive of MAG, Jane Cocking, and The HALO Trust Chief Executive, James Cowan, spoke before introducing Prince Harry and Secretary of State for International Development, Priti Patel.Prince Harry’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was closely involved in raising awareness about landmines, visiting Angola and Bosnia, two countries heavily affected.In the year marking the twentieth anniversary of The Princess’ death, Prince Harry is pleased to recognise his mother’s work and the progress which has been made by MAG, HALO, the UK Government and other organisations.“Twenty years ago, in the last months of her life, my mother campaigned to draw attention to the horrific and indiscriminate impact of landmines,” said Prince Harry. “She visited affected areas such as Huambo in Angola and Travnik in Bosnia. She heard how people in these communities lived in constant fear that each step may be their last. She met with those who had suffered life changing injuries as a result of anti-personnel mines, she listened to their stories, and helped share them with the world.”Prince Harry has visited minefields himself, in both Angola and Mozambique, meeting amputees, and witnessing the devastating impact landmines have on some of the poorest people in mine-affected communities.Source:Royal.UKlast_img read more
