A History of Video Games

Gaming is one of the fastest growing and most popular hobbies and pastimes on the planet today. In fact, games are so popular that they can be found in the most busy households all over the world. Gaming occurs when a player uses a personal computer or game console to interact with an avatar or another player via input devices such as a mouse, keyboard, joystick, or touch screen display device. The interaction can take place using a digital camera, a keyboard, a mouse, or a game controller.


There are many games that can be played online multiplayer. Multiplayer gaming refers to a game where two or more people from different locations can interact with each other through the Internet or other network mediums. There are several types of multiplayer games including online multiplayer which can be found in many games like Age of Conan, DayZ, Half Life, and Counter Strike. These types of games can be played by players who simply want to chat, play a game, make a contribution to a team, or hack the system.

For the hardcore gamer, there is nothing better than playing video games with others around the world, playing games that involve real weapons, driving and fighting in all sorts of settings. To satisfy this need, some gamers will travel to a location that has the capability to accommodate a large gaming community. These gamers will then establish an online multiplayer connection to play with other gamers who are connected to the Internet through various game consoles, broadband connections, and home computers. By communicating with other players, they can develop friendships and play games together to their heart’s content.

Another type of massively multiplayer online role playing game requires the player to use a paddlin or controller in order to play. In this type of game the participant is required to use hands and arms in order to aim and shoot at virtual targets. A popular form of this video game includes ping pong. With this type of game a player can participate either on an individual basis or as part of a team in order to win the game.

Many other forms of games have a time limit or other type of limitation as to when they can be played online. The most common of these time limit games include tower defense and many first person shooting video games. As with most games, the amount of time played online is limited by a variety of factors including player skill, the type of game, the type of Internet connection being used, and other online activities. For example, a player participating in an intense multiplayer game might have a limited amount of time to complete their mission before the timer runs out.

While video games continue to evolve and develop more complex features, it is interesting to observe how certain games have changed over time. As games become more detailed and require players to utilize different skills it is evident that the barriers to entry for gamers will continue to increase. Perhaps the most important trend is the growing number of people who play with friends and family members. In fact, many households now have their own gaming PCs as well as a variety of consoles so that friends and family members who are living far apart can play each others games. It is clear that gaming is here to stay as it has been for the last several decades. Perhaps one day gaming will be as integrated into society as watching television.

Public Health and Wellness


Public Health and Wellness

The word “health” has a multitude of meanings that range from life itself to death. According to the World Health Organization, “health is a state of full physical, mental and emotional well being and not just the absence of illness and disease.” Numerous other definitions have also been applied to health, sometimes with different intent than to promote a general well being. Some dictionaries define health as the condition of being able to cope with life. Other dictionaries define health as the ability to function normally in the face of emergencies.

In modern times, the focus on wellness has resulted in numerous attempts at defining a comprehensive approach to medical and psychological diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Much debate still occurs over how much psychology can contribute to a more comprehensive approach to wellness. The challenge for psychologists, educators and concerned citizens is to devise a broad spectrum of wellness concepts that would be the foundation for promoting mental health. This discussion continues to rage in much debate both within the field of psychology and in the public health arena.

One area of much debate in the psychological well-being field is the effect of poverty on mental health. According to several studies, poor people are more likely to have higher levels of stress, depression, anxiety and other disorders than those who have greater financial resources. There are many theories regarding the relationship between poverty and mental health. Researchers note that poor nutrition and lack of exercise, environmental toxins, illiteracy and limited exposure to sunlight may contribute to the development of such illnesses as arthritis, cancer and diabetes.

Improving the mental wellbeing of society can have obvious implications on reducing overall illness and death rates. Several studies have revealed that there is an increased risk of death due to heart disease, diabetes and cancer in countries with a high percentage of unhealthy people. Studies have also indicated that physical and mental illness is associated with one another. Patients who suffer from physical illnesses are said to be more prone to developing psychological illness like depression, anger management and other mood disorders. Those who suffer from mental illnesses are often hospitalized or are confined to their homes, causing them to develop higher levels of stress and depression.

Public health experts believe that both physical and mental health can be affected by increasing the rate of physical activity and decreasing the rate of sedentary behavior. They have also suggested that both factors can together lead to a decrease in the rate of illness and mortality. A lot of research has been conducted to evaluate the effect of a low-fat, low-sugar diet on health and wellbeing. The results showed that people who follow this diet have better overall health and live longer than those who did not. It also indicated that a decreased consumption of sugar, fat and salt lead to improved mental wellbeing and lower the prevalence of both physical and psychiatric illness.

Many people suffer from poor mental health, especially with regards to depression. This condition affects a lot of people and is the fifth leading cause of disability globally. It can have serious social and economic consequences for families and individuals alike. It can have devastating effects on health outcomes and life expectancy. In order to prevent the onset of mental health issues and maintain optimum wellness, it is important that we make ourselves aware of our physical health and ensure that we eat a healthy, balanced diet and get regular exercise. All these measures are essential for improving public mental health.
