#Medikidz Makes Healthcare Understandable Through Comics

Originally posted on Graphic Policy:

type-1-diabetes-2nd-edMedikidz has a unique mission. They’re out to create a global community of young people who are informed, empowered and health-aware. A lofty ambition for sure, but here comes the fun part…they are using comics to do it!

Comic as education is nothing new. However comics as innovative resources for medical professionals, patients, and caretakers around the globe is on a whole different level. To-date, the UK based company has distributed over 3 million copies of their unique comic books worldwide. In 2011, they took on AIDS in Africa reaching over 100,000 young people in clinics across Swaziland, a region plagued with the highest number of HIV patients in the world. In 2012, the company’s two FEMALE CEO’s were celebrated on International Woman’s Day as leader’s in the New Zealand medical field. In 2013, they went digital with MediKidz Explain Type 1 Diabetes available on both iOS and Android platforms…

Nick Brick created TitanFall replicas made out of LEGO bricks and they look badass! He made the R101C-Carbine, EVA-8 Shotgun and Smart Pistol MK5. These weapons were made before the game actually released so it makes it that much more impressive!

Here are some videos of the Eva-8 Shotgun, Smart Pistol MK5 and R-101C Assault Rifle.

I would love to see what else Nick can do with the Titanfall universe, would be awesome to see some Anti-Titan weapons next!

Well, this one crept up on me! I was gearing up for the FOX card on Saturday and realized that there is a random Wednesday event from Quebec going down first.  Neat-O! Now, I haven’t watched a second of TUF Nations so I won’t touch on those Finale tilts, but I will give you a quick preview of my favorite three fights on the card.

Why The WWE Paying Tribute To “Warrior” Is The “Ultimate” Insult

Originally posted on the Sterling Road:

By Jay Kirell

Recently two things occurred in the world of professional wrestling that shook its fans to the very core.  First, the performer known as The Undertaker (real name Mark Calloway) lost for the first time at the WWE’s flagship pay-per-view event – WrestleMania.  An outcome even the most tuned-in wrestling fans never saw coming.

The second was the death of performer famously known to many as the Ultimate Warrior (birth name James Hellwig and legal name – seriously – Warrior) one night after appearing on the WWE’s highly-watched Monday Night RAW television show.  Warrior died last Tuesday outside of a hotel in Arizona at the age of 54.

As news of his death quickly spread, thoughts and condolences poured in from fellow wrestlers and fans, thanking him for his years of entertainment and joy he brought to them.

A few days later, word started circling that the WWE would be honoring the Ultimate Warrior with a special tribute…

10 Things WWE Wants You To Forget About The Ultimate Warrior

Originally posted on The Wrestling Forum:

This week has been full of highs and lows for World Wrestling Entertainment. From the greatness in New Orleans at the Hall of Fame, WrestleMania 30 (Top 3 Wrestlemania) and Raw the next night, WWE was riding a huge wave of momentum. Then the sad news hit on Tuesday night as Triple H tweeted about how The Ultimate Warrior passed away due to a heart attack.

It didn’t feel real. We saw Warrior all weekend. His speech at the Hall of Fame was a wonderful way for him to return to the WWE family. Fans cheered for him. They showed him the kind of love he deserved. At WrestleMania 30, the other Hall of Famers stood on the stage. Then he got the big introduced and was the last one to wave to the fans. Everybody in the building was standing. I was there. It was an honor to be…

Survival of the Fittest: Ultimate Warrior and Hate Speech

Originally posted on :

Heath-Ledger-001

“Leather Hedger had sleeping troubles and anxiety and dealt with terrible mood swings…By today’s standard, though, I do have to agree that he was a great father. Perhaps even greater then the father of the year, Hulk Hogan. After all, Leather Hedger did what it took to kill himself. His kid is without a father, yes, but the negative influence is now removed and his own child has the chance for a full recovery.”

- Ultimate Warrior on Heath Ledger, after the actor’s death

Jim Hellwig, later known as the Ultimate Warrior, was just one week ago enjoying induction into WWE’s Hall of Fame, an appearance at WrestleMania XXX, and a nostalgia promo on Monday Night Raw. He’s now dead. Beyond the wave of tributes for a legendary pro wrestling character, what about the person himself? What about his life’s mission, his beliefs, his passions and his principles?

What’s next for Ronda Rousey?

Originally posted on DTRT Wrestling.com:

20140412-133350.jpg

Other then Cyborg vs Rousey, Rousey vs Carano has been a dream fight for many WMMA fans for quite sometime. yesterday this article surfaced online discussing the possibility of this fight http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2014/0411/573081/would-ronda-rousey-give-gina-carano-a-title-shot/

Rousey has went on record saying she would love to fight Carano. Rousey has a huge amount of respect for Carano and rightfully so because Carano had a dominating career in strikeforce and is indeed a pioneer for WMMA.
Although the women’s BATEMWEIGHT champion is completely game for this fight there’s a few contributing factors as to why it won’t happen. The most notable one is that Carano fights in a catch weight class a totally different class then the champ which means the title would NOT be on the line. Another argument would be that Carano hasn’t been in a cage in the last 5 years.
So what do you guys think? Is this a fight we…

The Most Awkward Animation

UFC Fight Night – Nelson v Nogueira

Originally posted on ufcmoneymaker:

Just like the Undertaker at Wrestlemania XXX this past weekend the streak has ended. His was arguably more impressive than mine as mine was a losing streak, snapped by some very sharp (if I say so myself) calls on a card that was littered with upsets.

Despite it being a horrible stoppage I was grateful that the night opened with a nice win for Jason landing my Under 2.5 Rounds in the process, while taking the outright wins on Maldonado and Dollaway paid handsomely. I feel a tinge of irritation as a very poor call by the referee robbed Norman Parke of a win to improve profits even more but we got our money back so it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. With a Return on Investment of 41% I snapped a losing streak and got back to winning ways.

After a near three week break my…

How to Read Comics Part 2: Growing Up Geek

Originally posted on My Geekdom:

Instead of jumping into comics history or companies or my opinions on various matters I want to talk about me, because I’m vain. Not really, I want to talk about growing up a geek and a dork. I am an 80s child so I grew up on the Masters of the Universe cartoons including She-Ra. I watched Transformer and GI Joe. Those were my shows and even though they had comic books I don’t remember reading anything other than the occasional He-Man illustrated book. So I guess I was pretty typical of kids at that age with a lot of my shows. When it came to costumed types there was no shortage of material, you just needed to know where to look. The Adam West Batman show was still in syndication as was Bill Bixby/Lou Ferrigno’s Hulk plus you had repeats of George Reeves Superman, Lynda Carter Wonder Woman and…
