Will There Be a Need For Games Console As We Know it in the Future?

Games consoles have literally been around for years. Thinking back to when I was younger, which was not that long ago, I remember getting the first Sega master system console with the game Alex the kid built in. Now a game like that blew me away simply because of the sheer amount of enjoyment I could get from it and in that year they were absolutely amazing graphics.

As the years passed by, games broke more and more barriers, but the turning point that I could remember was playing the original PlayStation when it initially came out, if I remember correctly it was competing with the Sega Saturn and N64. The Sega Saturn was one of Sega’s first attempts at creating a console that had the ability to run off of CD’s. The system failed to pick up momentum due to the competition from Sony and Nintendo, but it was also to difficult to program games for. The PlayStation literally changed the gaming environment and new breed of games were born.

Since then there has been numerous consoles released and Microsoft have also joined the battle with their X Box brand. But in this current day and age where do we really see computer games and games consoles heading?

Personally I believe the use of CD based games will not exist in the next few years, technology is developing at an immense speed and the internet is expanding so fast. In around a decade’s time all games will be web based in my opinion and you will literally be playing them on the internet, where all of your data will literally be stored in your online profile. So no matter whose games console you actually play on it will just load up your own profile so you can continue where you started.

The developers literally will create games that people can then purchase online or subscribe to online, which will then pay them. I definitely feel that this will be a much better route to take as it will stop people from losing or breaking discs, it will also help protect against saved data that can sometimes become corrupted.

The gaming and online industry are both moving forwards at quite a fast paste and it will be exciting to see what comes out of it all and how the industry progresses in the future. Will the internet become the place to do everything?

War Over Waters In Future

War Over Waters in Future
War over water is not a brand new phenomenon during this world. The world has seen several fatal battles fought for the occupation of water resources. Ancient history reveals that the armies fought till the water resources were occupied. That side was victorious because it overpowered the water resources. It’s not an exaggeration that water was, water is, and water can be the vital item on the agenda of world politics.
The changing atmosphere affects the water the most. The disturbance within the ecosystem is a problem discussed in details since long. The increase in temperature, 1st of all, inversely affects the water in all forms. The ice melts the water level in oceans increases and the land diminishes. Then the melting of ice means that the good catastrophe for the earth. The rain system in the globe changes a lot. The rainy seasons of the various realms have changed. There is a larger drought within the areas where rainfall was already meager. In the identical method, the areas or regions have greater rains and off season rains due to the current plodding with nature. If the so referred to as industrial development continues at the same ratio with the same ignorance of atmosphere, the individuals can find no different means to fight. It is one aspect of the coin. The opposite side of the picture is a few what optimistic. A positive amendment has occurred as way as the environmental awareness is concerned. The industrialists are in the road with the compliance of the environmental laws. The scientists together with the governmental organizations are operating arduously to alienate the seriousness of the issue. Things that are thought-about alien to environment are being replaced or treated to form them environmentally friendly. The UN and other non governmental organizations have done yeoman services for this human friendly cause.
All changes aside, the politics of water also are changing color. The people have become responsive to the seriousness of the situation. They understand that the war is not any answer to the current problem. If one power snatches the water resources, the bereaved nation can not stay idle. She can also prepare for a counter attack and during this means the chain of war would ensue that is not acceptable to humankind.
The governments would surely share the water resources, however while not war or any aggressive action while not necessity. Necessity here means if a nation is adamant enough to fulfill the obligations of the Pacts, the other power might use force.
Man has learned enough to tackle the crises situation. The powers have experienced worse things and understand how to deal in these conditions. The danger of atomic war was averted, the third world war was to start out, but the sages of the time tackled things and saved the world from the scourge of destruction.
Thus it is hoped that the water would not be a source of universal war, the governments would kind out some manner to handle the water resources, but just distribution can not be guaranteed.

America’s Future Civil War

The Rich Get Richer While The Poor Get Poorer (Anonymous)

In the next 30-plus years something drastic will take place: The minority population in America will switch sides with America’s white population. How will Black America handle this turn of power? How will America’s white population deal with this change?

Most of us have thought about it at one time or another. Will the African-American and Latino populations (now about 25-28%) be as unjustifiable in their treatments of Whites, as the white population has been for hundreds of years with the Black population?

It’s a war waiting to happen, as proved by past experiences in civil rights, in the rights of all humans, the right that “all men are created equal.”

If statistics are to believed, close to a million Iraqi civilians (men, women, and children) have been killed in the last four years, while America’s prejudicial attitude of “be like us, or else” threatens hundreds of thousands more innocents everyday. Many believe the number killed is much higher. It’s sad we will never know how many lives America has affected. Imagine how the Black person, or Latino, felt and still feels when he/she, in this modern-day of “anything’s acceptable,” is still treated as less a person because of their race. The word ‘equality’ is a relative word, and it is as much a pretense as it has always been in American society. We must always ask ourselves; Are we a nation of civility? Does everyone have equal civil rights? It’s a question that is unfortunately too easy to answer based on past and present history.

George Bush in his first term as President never visited the NAACP, the first president in modern times to avoid participating in a dialogue on Black/White relations, creating an even larger racial divide than before he took office. The Washington Times reported that before the 2004 presidential election, only about 20,000 American residents visited the Canadian immigration website. The day after Bush was declared president again, more than 115,000 visited the website.

Author Greg Palast noted that in 2000, George W. Bush won less than 10 percent of the black vote. To make matters worse, as the 2000 election debacle unfolded in Florida, it became clear that the election shenanigans, which included wiping 57,000 names, mostly Blacks, from the list of eligible voters, were not unintentional errors, but instead involved orchestrated and systematic efforts at disenfranchising African-American and immigrant voters.

The following statistics may shed some light on America’s racism:

o According to the Census Bureau, in 2001, 30 percent of both Black and Latino children lived in poverty.

o Unemployment in 2003 for young black men aged 16-19 topped out at more than 30 percent, double that of young white men in the same age category.

o Blacks make up 13 percent of the population, but represent 50 percent of the nation’s prison population. Black men are 6 percent of the population but are more than 40 percent of those on death row.

Despite significant changes in the legal context and sociological climate, neighborhood racial segregation remains pervasive within America today. In a number of recent studies, strong evidence has been offered linking this segregation to the social and economic problems of blacks. Black versus white disparities in unemployment, wage rates, labor market knowledge, test scores, unmarried motherhood, and high school graduation can all at least partly be attributed to housing segregation. It can be summed up in the following statistic: The medium net worth of today’s black household is $ 6000. The net worth of a white household is $ 88,000 – fourteen times the wealth. Is there any question as to why America’s youth of color have no dreams? Feel abandoned by today’s lawmakers and leaders? See no future?

Former Black slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass wrote in the late 19th century, “The hostility between the whites and Blacks of the South are easily explained . . . both are plundered by the same plunderers . . . and it (hostility) was incited on both sides by the poor whites and the Blacks by putting enmity between them. They divided both to conquer each. ” It is the same today, and it is leading us into another civil war, this one racial/class motivated.

Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) warned in a presidential debate on June 5, 2007, that the Bush administration has done nothing to defuse a “quiet riot” among blacks that threatens to erupt just as riots in Los Angeles did 15 years ago after the Rodney King incident. Back then 55 people died and 2000 were injured in several days of riots in the city’s black neighborhoods. He said that with black people from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast still displaced 20 months after Hurricane Katrina, frustration and resentments are building explosively as they did before the 1992 riots. “These ‘quiet riots’ that take place every day are born from the same place as the fires and the destruction and the police decked out in riot gear and the deaths,” Obama said. “They happen when a sense of disconnect settles in and hope dissipates. Despair takes hold and young people all across this country look at the way the world is and believe that things are never going to get any better.”

Americans – White, Black, and Latino are scared today. What is to become of America’s people of color? Will this daily ‘quiet riot’ turn into a ‘loud riot’ and thrust our country into this impending civil war? With they take up arms and fight those who for so many years oppressed them into their subservient lifestyle?

Nothing has changed in the last 150 years. It is still rich versus poor, love versus hate, right versus wrong, help versus hinder, good versus bad.

We must stop the ‘versus’ and be our brother’s keeper if we are to survive.

Star Trek – Revitalizing the Future

“Space, the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. It’s five year mission: to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldy go where no man has gone before!” With these words, Gene Roddeberry created a phenomenon that has swept the world, and created a fandom that is fiercely loyal. After numerous movies and TV shows, the franchise is getting a new start with a new movie May 8th. The movie will bring back the celebrated original crew, but with some twists. The crew will meet technically before they were supposed to, and be brought aboard the fabled Enterprise before the original series premiered.

For those unfamiliar with Star Trek, a little insight will be provided. Gene Roddenberry had an idea for a science fiction show set in space, with heavy drama and high adventure. He developed this idea for years before CBS gave him the green light. It debuted in 1966. It featured William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, the youngest captain in Starfleet, as the commander of the USS Enterprise and her crew. He was flanked by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Leonard McCoy, who was fiery and emotional; and the Vulcan known as Spock, who had learned to supress his emotions and places his belief in logic, as do all Vulcans. The trio rounded each other out very well, and the rest of the senior staff: Scotty, Sulu, Uhura and later Chekov, brought the Enterprise to different planets, wild adventures, and captivated audiences… well the few who tuned in. It was cancelled after three seasons due to poor ratings. Since that beginning, the cult status of the show has given way, and now it is one of the biggest media franchises, which includes comics.

The current holder of the Star Trek comic license, IDW, have been producing comics since 2006, and they have delved into both the original series and the successful Next Generation. One of the major series dealing with the original crew of the USS Enterprise is Star Trek: Year Four. Year Four consists of what would have been the Fourth Season of Star Trek, and is written by DC Fontana. Fontana is a well respected writer in the science fiction community, as well as Gene Roddenberry’s assistant, pre-Star Trek. With her writing the series, there is a sense of continuity with Mr. Roddenberry’s original vision. Of course, IDW has also managed to snag major comic luminaries to write for the series as well. Chris Claremont (Star Trek: Debt of Honor) and John Byrne (Star Trek: Assignment Earth, Star Trek: Crew), legends of the comic industry, have worked on Star Trek books in recent years, as well as Peter David, who was well known to Trekkies as a Trek novelist as well as a comic book writer. Mr. David actually wrote a sequel to his novel series, Star Trek: New Frontier. With the new relaunched movie, IDW has not missed a beat. They have produced a movie prequel which has sold very well, and they have numerous Trek titles available.

To find all of IDW’s Star Trek comics and graphic novels, Midtown Comics is the logical choice to beam you into the adventures of the Enterprise. With two prime locations in the heart of Manhattan, as well as a wonderful website, Midtown Comics is the place for your Trek needs. From comics to playsets to t-shirts (just as long as it’s not red!), Midtown has it all. Gene Roddenberry dreamed of a future where all of humanity co-existed, but with the uncertainty of our time, and the distance from his era, perhaps the dream needed a little updating. The new Star Trek will be in theaters May 8th, 2009, and we will see what the brand new future of Roddenberry looks like. See you in the theatre!
