(Culturel Google MARU NIHONIHO LISY KANIE GAMERS ELISSA HARRIS A FUN, INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION RECOGNISES THE GROUNDBREAKING WORK BY WOMEN IN THE GAMES INDUSTRY e days of gaming being a boys-only zone are well and truly over. Nearly half of all gamers are women and, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the number of women working in the industry rose from 8.7% in 2011-12 to 15% in 2015-16. But there is still a long way to go, and incidents like Gamergate-where female gamers and developers in the US were harassed and threatened for speaking out against sexism-give the industry a bad reputation. An exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) called Code Breakers: Women in Games aims to change that. Ten female programmers, producers, designers and directors from Australia and New Zealand are featured, and visitors can play their games, which range from big studio releases like Little Big Planet and Tricky Towers through to more experimental titles. As programmer Elissa Harris says in the exhibition, "One of the most important things for a child growing up is seeing people who look like them doing the things they want to be doing. More diversity behind the scenes also leads to more diversity in the games themselves. Protagonists in games used to be mainly men-now there is more variety, in culture and race, as well as gender. For example, Maru Nihoniho's Metio Interactive produces games with Mäori characters, and players can choose to play in English or Te Reo Mãori. And the good news is, Australia is ahead of the curve when it comes to being inclusive. Lisy Kane was the first female hire at League of Geeks in 2014 now the team is 35% women. "The video game industry has definitely identified the gender mbalance problem," she says. "They've accepted it and taken it on board and want to improve it." Code Breakers is at ACMI until November 5. Play the games online at acmi.net.au.-Chloe Walker Careers with Cade 29 Code CODE BITCH
Community, Drugs, and Lottery: $52 Million Lottery Winner Will Rebuild Historically Black Neighborhood: "There is a need, and in my mind, an obligation, to invest there." @balleralert $52 Million Lottery Winner Will Rebuild Historically Black Neighborhood: “There is a need, and in my mind, an obligation, to invest there.” - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2010, MiguelPilgram was the winner of a $52 million lottery jackpot that enabled him to start his own real estate company, ThePilgramGroup. Now he plans to use his winnings to build up properties across south Florida, specifically, a well-known Main Street named SistrunkBoulevard that was once a wealthy area for African Americans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sistrunk was often referred to as the “historical heartbeat of Fort Lauderdale’s oldest black community,” which is located right in the middle of most of the city’s black businesses. The area was named after JamesSistrunk. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ James was a black physician who helped found the first Black hospital in Broward County in 1938, when segregation laws prohibited Blacks from entering the east side of the tracks where they could be seen and treated in “white” hospitals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Post-desegregation, the area started to lose its high economic status and became a haven for gun violence, abandoned buildings, and drugs. However, Pilgram recently bought three buildings he plans to make into a jazz lounge, blues lounge, restaurants, and a center for performing arts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “For me, it’s [about] preserving the community as a whole,” Pilgram told an NBC local affiliate station in South Florida, adding that Sistrunk was once a hub of “success for businessmen.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Along with Pilgram, Edduard Prince, community activist and legal specialist says outside developers are “drooling” to invest in Sistrunk which, like similar cases, will strip the neighborhood of its history and culture while pushing out current residents. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pilgram’s plan is to do the exact opposite. He wants to develop the location while keeping the culture and its people there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I was raised in a similar environment,” he told The Sun-Sentinel. “There is a need, and in my mind, an obligation, to invest there.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now that’s, ForTheCulture.
