WHITTIER – Look on the back of a video game at Game Stop at the Quad in Whittier and there are warnings such as “Blood & Gore,” “Use of Drugs” and “Animated Blood.” “I’m a pacifist and I play violent games,” said Game Stop manager Andrew Ardisone, 21, of Whittier. “But when I was little, they didn’t have violent games.” Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Oct. 7 signed Assembly Bill 1179 into law, banning the sale of violent video games depicting “heinous, atrocious or cruel” violence to anyone under 18. The law was scheduled to take effect Jan. 1. Manufacturers would be required to place an “18” sticker on the packaging of such games. Violators could face fines of up to $1,000. But with gamer organizations suing the state and a federal judge halting the legislation from taking effect, the gaming industry will not see tougher restrictions any time soon. “These laws are a clear violation of the First Amendment,” said Sean Bersell, vice president of public relations for the Video Software Dealers Association. “The Constitution of the United States puts some limits on government and this is one of those limits.” Bersell said the industry only markets violent video games to adults and most retailers already follow policies restricting the sale of violent video games to minors. “They made a commitment not to sell or rent these games to anyone under 18,” he said. “Bottom line, retailers don’t want kids to have these games if their parents don’t want them to have them.” Major game retailers, such as Game Stop and Game Quest, will ask for an ID if a buyer appears under 18 years old and attempts to buy a game with the “M” or mature rating. “We check ID,” Ardisone said. “If a person looks under 25, I card them. With the rules being so strict lately, we could get jail time (for selling to a minor).” Ardisone said that violent games such as the “Grand Theft Auto” series, “Condemned” for XBox 360 and “Prince of Persia” are also the most popular items at his store. “I have kids try to buy it with no ID, and when I turn them down, they go outside and ask someone to buy it for them,” Ardisone said. “I’ve sold Grand Theft Auto to 8-year-olds who convince their parents to buy it for them.” A spokesman for Assemblyman Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, the author of the bill, said violent video games are falling into the hands of children. “These videos have up to 800 hours of footage on them,” said Yee’s spokesman, Adam Keigwin. “Some of the most violent scenes are after you master the game after playing the game for hundreds of hours.” The psychological and emotional effects are harmful to children, Keigwin said, especially because of video games’ interactive nature. “It’s far different than watching a movie or listening to a CD,” he said. Ardisone said he doesn’t think violent games negatively affect young people, although he admits he never played them as a child, and that the games do blur fantasy and reality. “I don’t think it affects kids negatively,” he said. “As long as you tell your kids that this is not real life.” The state and gaming organizations are now waiting to schedule a preliminary injunction hearing to decide whether the law is a First Amendment breach., (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026, 2236last_img read more

first_imgJames DeGale is set to fight former world champion Cristian Sanavia in Denmark on 21 April.Italian Sanavia, 37, is the mandatory challenger for the Harlesden man’s European super-middleweight title and has won 45 of his 51 contests.DeGale, 26, recently announced he had split from promoter Frank Warren, who insisted the 2008 Olympic gold medallist had a year of his contract with him left to run.Italian-based company Round Zero won the purse bids to stage the fight, which is scheduled to take place at the Nord Arena in the town of Frederikshavn.It will be DeGale’s first outing since he won the title with a points victory against rugged Pole Piotr Wilczewski in October.A victory would keep him on course for a world title shot or a possible rematch with arch rival and fellow West Londoner George Groves, who secured a majority decision when they met last year.In fact the pair could fight for a world title given that Groves is being lined up to challenge WBO champion Robert Stieglitz.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_img25 May 2011The smooth running of last week’s local government elections once more demonstrated South Africa’s growth as a democracy and how it continues to attract the respect of the international community, President Jacob Zuma said after a meeting with the board of the International Marketing Council of SA on Tuesday.“For us, the elections, like many events we have held before, are once again proof of how we can help market this brand called South Africa,” Zuma said after the meeting in Pretoria.“To be a democratic country is very important because now we have people who are able to link their vote to their living conditions, and that markets SA in terms of its democracy.”The elections also helped South Africa to boost its international marketing both politically and economically, Zuma said.The meeting, also attended by businesspeople and Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane, discussed at length the need for business and government to work together to market the successes of the country domestically and to the world.Established in 2002, the International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC) is tasked with developing and implementing proactive and coordinated marketing and communication strategies for the country.IMC chairperson Anita Soni said South Africa’s advanced telecommunications and research infrastructure made it one of the most attractive and competent countries in the world.“What we discussed in this meeting is that, considering the things we have, it is very important moving forward that we as South Africans become brand ambassadors for our country, because we have a lot to be proud of,” Soni said. “But it will take all of us to achieve that,” she added.Zuma used the meeting to appoint Geoffrey Rothschild, Moss Leoka, Sindi Mabaso-Koyana and Ramasela Moloto, all from the private sector, as the new members of the IMC board.New government representatives on the board are Presidency Director-General Cassius Lubisi, Trade and Industry Director-General Lionel October, Arts and Culture Director-General Sibusiso Xaba, and Timothy Scholtz from South African Tourism.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

first_imgA government primary school in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia district has landed in a caste discrimination controversy after some students did not have their midday meals alongside Dalit schoolmates.The matter came to light after a video of the school during the midday meal session, apparently shot by media persons, was widely shared on social media. Mayawati reactsWhile Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati demanded strict legal action by the State government against those guilty of “such disgusting casteist discrimination”, the district administration said the complaints of caste-based discrimination were prima facie “entirely baseless”.But P. Gupta, principal of the Rampur-1 primary school, admitted to “slight discrimination” that the Dalit students faced from others. He said some of the other students do not want to eat in the same plates as Dalit students — they bring their own plates and eat separately.“We make them sit in a line but they — perhaps they get taught that at home — display slight discrimination,” said Mr. Gupta.Despite warning the students several times and teaching them about equality, Mr. Gupta said they sit and eat in their allotted lines for a short while but once the teachers move away, move out and eat separately.Ballia DM’s denialThe school has mostly Dalit and Scheduled Tribe students with a few coming from the OBC communities, said the principal.Ballia DM Bhawani Singh Khangarot, who went on an inspection of the school, said there was no basis to show any discrimination. “All students said it (report of caste-based discrimination) was incorrect,” he said.However, Mr. Khangarot said a detailed probe would be conducted under a joint magisterial-level officer and testimonies of the students as well as their guardians recorded.last_img read more

first_imgRajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday dared the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to convert itself into a political party and fight elections, instead of controlling its political front from behind the curtain and acting like an “extra-constitutional authority”. He said the RSS had no role in the Independence movement and framing of the Constitution.Mr. Gehlot made the remarks on the second day of a special session of the State Assembly convened here to mark 70th anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution. The two-day session turned into a political slugfest between the ruling Congress and the Opposition BJP, with both the parties accusing each other of undermining constitutional values.Replying to the debate as the Leader of the House, Mr. Gehlot said the RSS was enjoying power without any responsibility, as no Minister or Chief Minister was appointed without its consent. “The RSS and the BJP have no faith in the Constitution. They only pay lip service to constitutional norms because they want to win elections in democracy,” he said.‘BJP exposed’Mr. Gehlot took a dig at the recent political developments in Maharashtra, while affirming that the BJP had been exposed by the way President’s Rule was revoked early in the morning and the Chief Minister and Deputy CM were sworn in. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi lost no time in congratulating them. Does it prove the dictum Modi Hai to Mumkin Hai?” he asked.Amid interruptions by the BJP MLAs, Mr. Gehlot targeted Mr. Modi for his working style and decisions like demonetisation and the GST implementation. The Chief Minister said BJP’s dream of making a Congress-free India would never succeed, as parliamentary democracy had taken firm roots in the country only because of the consistent efforts and prolonged struggle of the Congress.The House witnessed noisy scenes when Leader of the Opposition Gulab Chand Kataria made a reference to the Ram temple and accused the Congress of not making efforts to resolve the long-pending Ayodhya dispute.last_img read more
