    NFL 19' Season Predictions

    To be honest, its going to be a really good and interesting season. The Browns look good but yet again, we are talking about the Browns... The Patriots will be interesting to watch without Gronk and a few other players that left. My Prediction for the Title Games: NFC- Rams vs. Saints (Again) AFC- Chiefs vs. Browns SUPER BOWL- Saints vs. Browns WINNER- Saints

    Video Games Helping Understand PTSD

    By Nex Addo Video games today are helping the civilian and military community better understand the complex and difficult to handle Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD]. PTSD can occur in those who have had or witnessed a traumatic experience such as the sudden death of a loved one, a natural disaster, war, a personal violent attack, own, and many other trauma-related experiences. Symptoms can appear quickly or even years after an event, but a diagnosis is an extremely difficult and particular process which at times requires some individuals to show signs at least a month at a time with some symptoms including anxiety, depression, and flashbacks. The problem with PTSD is it can be confused with other disorders, but anyone can be diagnosed with PTSD, even those under the age of 16. Today, virtual reality is now helping the world train pilots, law enforcement, assist in health care rehab and spinal cord injuries, and now helping us gain a better understanding of PTSD and the mental health crisis. VR helps create a stimulating experience similar to the traumatic one a person may have had, though this technique is mostly used in combat-related scenarios. VR works through exposure therapy, forcing an individual to confront the feared thought, image, or memory that is associated with the past event. Hopefully, with enough exposure therapy, the patient will be able to better handle the effects of distressing flashbacks, depression, grief, along with other mental health issues. In January 2019, Science Daily shared a study from Ruhr-University Bochum about PTSD and Tetris. "The study involved 20 patients with complex PTSD who were hospitalized at the Department of Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy for six to eight weeks for regular therapy. In addition to the usual individual and group therapies, they also underwent a special intervention. They wrote one of their stressful memories down on a sheet of paper. Then they tore up the piece of paper -- without talking about the content -- and played Tetris on a tablet for 25 minutes…” Patients experienced a decrease in the amount and volatility of the flashbacks, but this took at least weeks after playing Tetris for at least a week from the study at Ruhr-University Bochum. Due to our lack of support in the healthcare industry for mental health as some healthcare professionals would claim it's hard to treat PTSD for everyone or at least a great majority. There are times when PTSD becomes too much for an individual and they may take their own life. Today the VA is combating mental health issues and suicidal ideation by having a 24/7 hotline for veterans to currently using. For those who are civilians, there are many opportunities when it comes to the same issues by contacting local and national suicide hotlines. For now, video games in any format, whether it be created specifically for PTSD patients or those in the market, will need further studies for a better conclusion. It is possible that the games could help trap and reorganize memories of trauma allowing these patients to finally live with PTSD in better conditions.

    I was told to post in here. I was wondering if someone would change my username on here to my gamertag: CH3DDAR191. Update: Disregard that, I saw how to change it.

  19. Written by KSI Koda 7 This month, we're interviewing KSI Mac18Arthur, Major of Leviticus in FG. He was nominated as our March Member of The Month, and we're definitely glad to have him here with us. Koda: Congrats on Member of the Month; how's it feel? KSI Mac18Arthur: It's an honor. K: Quite a humble response. What do you think secured your spot in the Community Member of The Month? M: Being polite to everyone regardless of rank, squad, or division and making sure everyone feels at home in KSI. K: I guess you could say you're just an all around great guy! What do you like to do when you're not on the console? M: One is spending time with my son & girlfriend. I usually participate in Martial arts (muay thai), but I had to take a break from it to do school work. I also collect old school video games, If that answers your question. Haha K: Ah, Martial Arts & Old School Games. What's your most favorite game you've collected so far? And along with that, what do you think the best game of all time is? M: I have too many favourites in my collection to pick just one. But my 2 favourite games of all time are "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" for the N64 and "The Witcher 3" for PS4, Xbox One and PC. I think those two are the best games of all time. If I were to pick between the two, I'd say one is "Ocarina of Time," and a close second would be "The Witcher 3". K: Gotcha! Do you work at all? If so, What's your line of work that you're in (if you don't mind us asking)? M: I'm in school to become an electrician. Before this I was into scaffolding. So I guess you could say i'm into trades. K: Nice. In a society where a lot of people are heavily pushing degrees and such before careers, we're losing a lot of tradeworkers which have valuable skills that some machines just can't do. Good stuff!! If there's one thing you could do to change the community as a whole, what would it be? Why? M: Well, I feel like we are constantly pushing recruiting. Recruiting is important to our community obviously, But I feel like if we are a little more patient the right recruits will come, and everything will flow as far as numbers. So in a nut shell.. less pushy with recruiting. Other than that, everything is perfect in my books. K: I love the feedback! And last but certainly not least, is there anyone at all you'd like to throw a shoutout to while you have the stand? M: Yes a few. Shout out to nickali_661; he is an amazing officer. Another to tristyd34, Poseidon and Hexflame. Poseidon and Hex believed in me as a leader before anyone else. Also shout out to hulkhogan and all the boys and gals in my squad! K: Ah, and one last important question! Mortal Kombat - who's your favorite character? M: Haha, I'm an oddball and never really got into Mortal Kombat. I was a Killer Instinct guy back in the day as far as 2D fighting games. Thanks for the interview!
