(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

Alive, Doctor, and Memes: WORLD NEWS RESCUE CAVE MISSION July 2 12 boys and their soccer coach have all been found alive after missing in a cave in Thailand for nine days. Rescue workers have found all 12 boys and their soccer coach alive after missing for nine days in a cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand. The boys are part of the Wild Boar soccer team, and range in ages from 11 to 16. They entered the Tham Luang Nang Non cave on Saturday, June 23 with their coach during a team outing. The team and their coach became stranded in the dark caves after a sudden downpour. ___ The international rescue operation included Thai Navy SEALS as well as rescuers and experts from the U.S., China, Australia, and the U.K. Rescuers were working against a large, deep chamber, informally known as Pattaya Beach, which had been flooded. They believed the boys and their coach had taken refuge there. ___ The rescuers have to drain the water from the cave before they can retrieve the boys and the coach. ___ Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters on Monday night: - "Our mission (is) not done yet. We will drain all water out from the cave then we will take all 13 people out of the cave. We are now planning how to send nurse and doctor inside the cave to check their health and movement. We will work all night." ___ Photos: Thai Navy SEAL | AFP | BBC

Facebook, Friday, and Relationships: Researchers Find Decline In Facebook Use Could Be Directly Linked To Desire To Be Happy Fully Functioning Person <p><a href="http://theonion.tumblr.com/post/170431494634/berkeley-caresearchers-at-university-of" class="tumblr_blog">theonion</a>:</p><blockquote><p>BERKELEY, CA—Researchers at University of California-Berkeley discovered Friday that a reduction in Facebook use could be directly linked to one’s desire to be a happy and fully functioning person. “Our data indicate that there may, in fact, be a relationship between yearning to be a self-realized human who enjoys being with other people in the real world and not spending every waking minute on artificial, once-removed social-interaction venues such as Facebook,” said lead scientist Dr. Charles Jennings, explaining that those who logged even marginally less time on the site displayed greater interest in performing basic physical activities, at least occasionally left their homes, and developed more meaningful relationships with others. “Furthermore, the vast majority of subjects did not miss ignoring others to bury their faces in their phones, endlessly obsessing over their public image, or mindlessly scrolling through a timeline in an attempt to fill a perceived void in their lives. Instead, most generally preferred things like experiencing the outside world, sleeping regularly, and allowing themselves the full range of human emotion.” Dr. Jennings added that the long-term psychological effects of decreased Facebook use are unclear, as the study had largely been conducted through polls and questionnaires on the UCB Psychology Department’s Facebook page.<br/></p></blockquote>

This is a shitty idea and no one can convince me otherwise.</p> </blockquote> <p>its the psychological equivalent. It’s a nonviolent cult idea, but a cult idea none the less</p></blockquote> <p>There’s a difference between raising “theybies” And raising kids without gender roles. Like I was raised very much without concern for gender roles. I wore boys clothing a lot of times to go play. My best friend was a dude and he played Ken in barbies but we would also play dinosaurs together. I got down and dirty and caught snakes and raccoons. Originally I was enrolled in dance classes, but at 6 I said I hated it and waned to do sports instead, so my parents enrolled me in soccer. When we went to mcdonalds and I got a happy meal, my mom would always ask “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” I turned out fine. That was a very good way to raise a kid because it never forced me to like this thing over that. It let me find my own interests and enjoy them without being shamed or told “thats not for you.” </p><p>However raising “theybies” is going to be reinforcing the harmful “thats not for you” because of the forceful aversion to anything even remotely representative of gender. Instead of allowing the kid to explore interests across a broad range, it’ll be about forcing the parents ideas of gender on to the child without letting the child explore their own personality, interests, etc. </p></blockquote> <p>Exactly. Like I’m not saying you can’t have kids with interests outside of their traditional gender roles. I dare say that’s entirely normal for many children. But there’s a big difference between that and this.</p>
