 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."

Truganini was the last full-blooded Palawa, but that doesn’t mean they are “extinct” as those reductive infographics would have you believe. Doesn’t matter how much milk you put in a cup of coffee, it’s still a cup of coffee, and just because Tasmanian aboriginals today are mixed race doesn’t mean they’re not still aboriginal with a living culture and a strong connection to their ancestors and their history. </p> <p>On Bruny Island, Truganini’s birthplace, which the Nuenone people called Lunnawanna-Alonnah, there is a thriving cultural centre called Weetapoona. The government restored land to Tasmanian aboriginals a few years back. There they are doing some fantastic work to revive their customs, work with archaeologists, as well as achieve reconciliation. </p> <p>Colonists certainly committed incomprehensible atrocities. Kidnapping, rape, murder, massacre, theft of land, even theft of aboriginal bodies. Not content with taking their lives and exiling them from country, they took bodies as trophies and sent them across the sea, away from land and ancestors. As a way of excusing their atrocities, perhaps, colonisers spread the idea that Tasmanians were the most backward and least evolved of all human beings, making them valuable “specimens.” It was Truganini’s greatest fear that she would be made a souvenir after she died, and unfortunately her fears came true. It took many, many decades before her body was returned to country. I could go on and on, but my point is that it is so important that we don’t spread this idea of extinction and acknowledge them instead as a living culture who must be allowed to define themselves, their past and their future. Spreading nonsense and reductive half-truths like the one above only makes it worse. </p> </blockquote> <p>OP is either an idiot who can’t do research or a liar.</p></blockquote>

The British killed the men and women of the tribes and took away their food supply when they first arrived. Later they tried to “civilize” the Tasmanians and subject them to foreign diseases to kill off the last of them. The last full-blood Tasmanian woman was said to have lived until the year1888.</p>

<p><b>As a History Concentration with a rather unsettling love for Looney Tunes and other classic cartoons, I never thought that I’d see the day where my two completely unrelated passions merged up so wonderfully.</b></p>
<p><b>And yet, here we are.</b></p>
<p><b>So let’s talk about Tasmania, shall we?</b></p>
<p><b>Actually, pretty much everything that the OP said about Tasmania is correct.</b></p>
<p><b>By the way, her name was Truganini (Nickname: 

Lallah Rookh.<i>)</i> If you’re going to use her legacy to try to criticize an old cartoon character you should at least give her the common courtesy of a name.</b></p>
<p><b>Now then, let’s talk about Looney Tunes.</b></p>
<p><b>Or more specifically, let us talk about the Tasmanian Devil.</b></p>
<p><b>Taz for short.</b></p>
<p><b>Great character.</b></p>
<p><b>Fun, energetic, hungry, and <i>not a racist portrayal in any way, shape, or form.</i></b></p>
<p><b>The statement that Taz is a racist portrayal of the Tasmanian people is <i>completely and one hundred percent wrong.</i></b></p>
<p><b>Now I know what you’re thinking…</b></p>
<p><b>“Alright marauders4evr, what <i>is </i>the Tasmanian Devil based off of?”<br/></b></p>
<p><b>Well, Im glad that you asked.</b></p>
<p><b>Gather ‘round and listen closely now because this is going to be one of the greatest revelations that you will ever hear in your mortal lives.</b></p>
<p><b>The Tasmanian Devil…</b></p>
<p><b>…is based off of the Tasmanian Devil!</b></p>
<p><b>Yeah!</b></p>
<p><b>It’s a real animal!</b></p>
<figure data-orig-width="250" data-orig-height="163"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/09f7806bd3aeae2a8a28051cef0b1a0d/tumblr_inline_nuqoutIf6p1r91wdr_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="250" data-orig-height="163"/></figure><p><b>An energetic animal who eats everything in its sight.<br/></b></p>
<p><b>And Robert McKimson based a character off of it.</b></p>
<p><b>Speaking of one of the great men behind Looney Tunes…</b></p>
<p><b>Let’s talk about Mel Blanc!</b></p>
<p><b>I love him!</b></p>
<p><b>I wish that I could have met him!</b></p>
<p><b>He’s one of my late heroes.</b></p>
<p><b>Phenomenal voice actor.</b></p>
<p><b>The best that has ever existed.</b></p>
<p><b>The Man of 1000 Voices he’s called.</b></p>
<p><b>(And that’s an underestimate!)</b></p>
<p><b>The point is that he took a lot of pride in his work.</b></p>
<p><b>So what did he base Taz’s dialect off of?</b></p>
<p><b>I can tell you right now that it wasn’t the Tasmanian people.</b></p>
<p><b>Mel Blanc based the sound of the Tasmanian Devil…</b></p>
<p><b>…off of the Tasmanian Devil!</b></p>
<p><b>Here’s a clip of Taz’s dialect:</b></p>

<p><b>(On a side note, I just love to imagine Mel in the recording booth, screaming and growling before calmly doing Bugs’ voice!)</b></p>
<p><b>In conclusion…</b></p>
<p><b>What happened to the Tasmanian people truly is saddening and I wish that it hadn’t happened.</b></p>
<p><b>THE TASMANIAN DEVIL (TAZ) IS NOT A RACIST PORTRAYAL IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM</b></p>
<p><b>THE TASMANIAN DEVIL IS A REAL ANIMAL!</b></p>
<p><b>MEL BLANC WAS AWESOME AND DESERVES YOUR UTMOST RESPECT!</b></p>
<p><i><b>T-T-T-T-T-T-THAT’S ALL FOLKS!</b></i></p>
</blockquote>
<p>Fabulous</p>
</blockquote>

<p>There’s enough actual, legitimate racism in this world. Speak out against that instead of making shit up. </p>
</blockquote>

<p>I thought it was common knowledge that all the animals in Looney Tunes were based on actual animals, and aren’t meant to represent people.</p>
</blockquote>

<p>And by the way, Tasmanian Aboriginals are still around. Truganini was the last full-blooded Palawa, but that doesn’t mean they are “extinct” as those reductive infographics would have you believe. Doesn’t matter how much milk you put in a cup of coffee, it’s still a cup of coffee, and just because Tasmanian aboriginals today are mixed race doesn’t mean they’re not still aboriginal with a living culture and a strong connection to their ancestors and their history. </p>
<p>On Bruny Island, Truganini’s birthplace, which the Nuenone people called Lunnawanna-Alonnah, there is a thriving cultural centre called Weetapoona. The government restored land to Tasmanian aboriginals a few years back. There they are doing some fantastic work to revive their customs, work with archaeologists, as well as achieve reconciliation. </p>
<p>Colonists certainly committed incomprehensible atrocities. Kidnapping, rape, murder, massacre, theft of land, even theft of aboriginal bodies. Not content with taking their lives and exiling them from country, they took bodies as trophies and sent them across the sea, away from land and ancestors. As a way of excusing their atrocities, perhaps, colonisers spread the idea that Tasmanians were the most backward and least evolved of all human beings, making them valuable “specimens.” It was Truganini’s greatest fear that she would be made a souvenir after she died, and unfortunately her fears came true. It took many, many decades before her body was returned to country. I could go on and on, but my point is that it is so important that we don’t spread this idea of extinction and acknowledge them instead as a living culture who must be allowed to define themselves, their past and their future. Spreading nonsense and reductive half-truths like the one above only makes it worse. </p>
</blockquote>
<p>OP is either an idiot who can’t do research or a liar.</p></blockquote>

Memes, Snoop, and Snoop Dogg: Snoop Dogg's Cannabis Firm Raises $45 Million For Investments In Weed Industry @balleralert APE Snoop Dogg’s Cannabis Firm Raises $45 Million For Investments In Weed Industry - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SnoopDogg has locked down $45 million to invest into cannabis startups. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in 2015, the legendary rapper and weed connoisseur co-founded an ancillary cannabis industry venture firm to invest in the business. However, Snoop’s Casa Verde Capital is not investing in the dispensaries or the actual weed growing process, but into the picks and shovels used for the process, the Grio reports. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, with the new $45 million fund, which is reportedly the largest in the industry, Snoop is reportedly ready to invest no less than $1 million in each company. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Our biggest investment to date is LeafLink, a marketplace for retailers and brands,” his managing partner Karan Wadhera said. “If you were Walmart and logging onto a platform to order from vendors, that’s what LeafLink has created for the cannabis space. A dispensary can log in and order from vendors on one consolidated platform.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As for Snoop’s involvement though, Wadhera says the rapper is all about their lifestyle media website. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “That’s content. That’s media. That’s Snoop’s bread and butter,” Wadhera said. “He mainly handles the financial modeling. He’s among the most important cultural figures in this industry, which is incredibly important. His involvement lends a lot of credibility and excitement to our portfolio companies. He’s also there for input whenever we need it.”

<blockquote>
<div>Another defining feature of steampunk is the aesthetics and the characters. Steampunk takes the latter part of the word (punk) to mean the opposition of the mainstream, though that’s not always necessary in your story.</div>
<div></div>
<div>Research jobs common in the Victorian age and add steam to it. Your characters will revolve around their setting and their clothing may be a part of that too.</div>

Children, College, and Energy: LICNAIRE WENTOR CHEERS TO ABETTER FUTURE. Start small and strive for a better F*CKING life! 🍾 - Living a life of excellence takes effort, but at the same time is rewarding and gives you energy so that you can keep up your work. Here are a few ideas that you can implement to strive for excellence👇 - ✔️Feel your emotions. Stop muffling your emotions underneath a big blanket and putting your fake-happy-neutral face all the time. Learn from children, who are sad, happy, excited and tired over the course of less than an hour. Feel what truly goes on within yourself, and simply accept it. ✔️Identify your values. To make the right choices in your life, you need to know what truly matters to you. Keep a list of your core values, and write your observations on how you and others live according to these values as well. Revisit your list often to focus your energy on what you value most in life. ✔️Define your limiting beliefs. What is holding you back? What cultural conditioning is keeping you from stepping out from the crowd? Do you think you can’t do it because you’re too old-young, because you haven’t gone to college or because you are a woman? Define your limiting beliefs, and then release them into the wide open. 😉 ✔️Practice gratitude. Learn to be grateful for all positive experiences that come across your path on a given day. Keep a list of 10 things that you are grateful for, every day. When dark days are upon you, be grateful for your health, for life, for your pet… anything that can give you a little spark! ✔️Smile. Light up your face and the heart of another person with a smile. - life cheers success millionairementor

Crying, Facebook, and Memes: Mother of H&M Model Doesn't See Anything Wrong with Controversial Ad @balleralert OLEST MONr N THE JUNE Mother of H&M Model Doesn’t See Anything Wrong with Controversial Ad-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ H&M has found themselves in some deep s*** after their recent ad caused an uproar on social media. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ After posting an ad that featured a black boy wearing a sweatshirt reading, "Coolest Monkey In The Jungle," the world went into frenzy over the controversial photo. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While many said the ad was problematic, Terry Mango, the boy’s mother, says she is cool with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “That's my son...av [sic] been to all photo shoots and this was not an exception, everyone is entitled to their opinion about this," Mango said on Facebook. She also mentioned, "This is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modeled... stop crying Wolf all the time, unnecessary issue." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Celebrities from the likes of LeBronJames to Diddy have spoken out on the issue. Rumor has it, Diddy even offered the young boy a $1 million modeling contract with Sean John. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ H&M has since issued an apology saying: "We're deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print. Therefore, we've not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In another post they said, "...we have got this wrong and we are deeply sorry. We have a responsibility to be aware of and attuned to all racial and cultural sensitivities - and we have not lived up to this responsibility this time..."
