What is Culture? How Does Society Work ?

Society is an abstract idea. You can't touch it or smell it. Is it to do with ownership?, materialism, or is it about relationships?

Does it mean you have responsibilities? Do you think human beings are naturally social animals, or do we only have society because it is forced upon us by some set of laws? Do you feel better for being in some way a part of a community, or is it some kind of obligation you have to put up with?

Video Games Are Good For Your Eyes ?


Video Games Are Good For Your Eyes

Researchers recently reported findings that playing first-person shooters can help your eyesight.

Scientists took six subjects with cataract disorders and asked them to play Medal of Honor for 40 hours over the course of a month. The subjects played the game for two hours a day, five days a week, for a month. Daphne Maurer of McMaster University in Canada who led the study said that playtime was limited because she didn't want to the patients to become addicted to the game. That's also probably the reason they chose Medal of Honor instead of Battlefield 3 or Call of Duty, I assume.

Five of the six participants showed improvement after the month was up. "They were able to recognize faces more easily, as well as make out small print and judge the direction of moving dots." This is good news for EA. They can now put a bullet on the back Medal of Honor boxes that reads, "improves eyesight!"

Maurer said, “the visual nervous system is still plastic enough to either form or reveal connections in adulthood….and we suspect that might be true for any kind of visual defect.”

The next step for Maurer and her team is to create, "the perfect vision-improving non-violent video game." Someone should show them Portal and Portal 2


Video games do more than just entertain people. It's also shown that people who play games that require thinking (Baldur’s Gate, Never winter Nights, earlier! Final Fantasy series) have a higher ability to think logically and make smarter decisions.

They also increase peoples reflexes (shooters), eye sight (spot the xx item) and a lot more random things. There was a big thing about all of this awhile back, but because it was showing video games in a positive light, it wasn't really a big thing in the media or anything.

How To Remove Malware - msgrap.exe and msgrap.exe

My system was infected with malware, Ainton.AA worm, I used Malwarebytes free version, it didn't remove it all, my NOD32 antivirus identified the worms, but wasn't able to remove them as they were running in the process.

1. ntdlr.exe - Which I manually deleted in safe mode. NOTE: It was taking 50% of the CPU usage and after deleting it, the usage was freed.

2. msgrap.exe - this still runs in processes and gains 50% of the CPU usage, I upgraded my NOD32 4 Security Essential to NOD32 5 Security Essential, but it failed to detected any virus or worm and this msgrap.exe still is in my processes under my user and not under SYSTEM.

I Googled as found some below tricks.

Use this program to identify the malicious program.

Beginning To Program, Making 2D Games?

 Beginning To Program, Making 2D Games?

If you are new to programming and looking for a good language to start. That's not too hard to learn and makes you see progress fast to stay motivated.

How To Start?

Programming Languages such as C# , Java , C , C++ , Objective-C would grant you what you want, there are other factors to take into consideration when learning one of these languages , such as performance (speed) , GUI , etc. Some languages are relatively more powerful than the other. It's best for you to narrow down what you really want to achieve and then select the appropriate language you feel would fit the bill.

You starting out with a scripting language like Lua & a game engine like Love2D for 2D games.

http://love2d.org/

Scripting languages don't have many gotchas & they are easier to pick up than a full blown programming language. Also Lua is widely used in the games industry, because it is very easy to embed, is fast & has a small runtime.

Then when you're more experienced, move on to programming languages such as C++/C# (Java IF you wish to do Android, Objective C if you want to do iOS).

If you want I've heard good things about this 2D game engine based in Lua for Android & iOS.

Also learning ActionScript 3 instead of ActionScript 2. ActionScript 2 is heavily outdated and doesn't make use of all the improvements in the latest versions of Flash Player.
Learning ActionScript 3 is the better option.

How To Remove Malicious Code "eval(base64_decode in Wordpress


How To Remove Malicious Code
I was dealing with the "eval(base64_decode(" injection on my sites for almost a week now and don't know what else to do, so I'm hoping someone here can help me figure this out.

I was able to locate all the places where this code was installed and was able to remove all of my files. Every time I open the file and remove the code everything works fine, but about 1-2 days later the code is re-injected back in the index.php

Then I found plugin Antivirus for Wordpress that will scan your theme templates for malicious injections. Automatically.

Warm Bodies- Zombies The New Vampires ?

Warm Bodies- Zombies The New Vampires

Max Brooks' describes zombies as having intelligence lower than that of an insect, and being incapable of any emotion. Nicholas Hoult's upcoming zombie romance Warm Bodies a zombie who falls in love with a girl after eating the brains of her boyfriend, the idea that ingesting someone's brain could lead to a zombie absorbing its memories/love is what sounds silly I think. All this aside - I'm not altogether against Nicholas Hoult's writing a novel suspending that kind of disbelief purely for a fantasy romance novel, farfetched as it is (zombies themselves aren't farfetched - WE ALL KNOW THIS WILL HAPPEN! lol).

The main thing is that this will make zombies into the new Twilight vampires. Little teenyboppers will begin to expect all zombies to be like this. It will be all romantic and bubbly, and my lovely flesh-eating, decaying, animalistic zombies will die out.

Battlefield 3 Black Screen Problem Resolved

I have installed Battlefield 3 game on my PC and got problem. The game crashed just a few seconds before I launch the single player mode and showed the black screen and error “Display Driver stopped responding and has recovered”.

Then I found help on internet. My Graphic is Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU. I went to Gigabytes website and found my graphic card http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3707#ov. I went to Download -> Bios and I FLASHED my graphic card. Problem resolved.

Facebook Become Necessity Nowadays?

Facebook is going to be here for the long-haul, all the big companies and even electronic devices/digital media have facebook-ported integration like craaazy! And it's only growing... this is big $$$ advertising potential/expansion for these corporations. You can't compare these to past social media stuff (e.g. myspace / friendster... even google+plus, doesn't stand a chance - you're talking about 100's of millions of people on this piece. Also since facebook is going to be slowly put into the Stock Market shortly with their IPO's - this is creating even more frenzy - just search the google news.

As for the regular user, it's grown to such a large and indescribable scale... seriously, even my cleaning lady from Europe from baack in the day has an account haha. Obviously everyone has a reason if needed on there... I have friends and colleagues, even from school/academic organizations that use it to pass information - difficult to avoid, depends on your own situation. I use it exclusively to send/receive messages. Nobody can see my friends/photos/info unless specified.... you gotta use some discretion nowadays, because depending on your job/school/career - all that stuff can come back... depending on whether you want particular things available for an even more "public access"

These facebook privacy settings could be a little easier as opposed to default settings, but you can adjust it.

Some other annoying things are - that every damn webpage nearly is linked to facebook, so you gotta be extra careful depending on your "browsing habits". Easiest way is to make sure you're not signed on, and if you have a script-blocker (e.g. Noscript for firefox) - never allow the main two websites as "always allowed" and manually/temporarily allow those to load before signing in. There use to be some good firefox plug-ins to remove "Like" buttons, but unfortunately, web developers always find a way to bypass that.

I only access facebook from my pc/laptop - don't even set it up via phone... too easy to stay "signed in/forget" and start "liking everything".
