Real Time Strategy (Games)

Submission + - Tomorrow's finest leaders may well be today's game (mybroadband.co.za)

slash-sa writes: "Video games have become problem-solving exercises wrapped in the veneer of an exotic adventure. In today's fast and rapidly-changing business environment, the strategic skills they teach are more important than ever. From realistic battlefield simulations to the building of great nations, from fantastic voyages through worlds of mythology to conquering space, "Generation G" could well offer the answer to unlocking great 21st century strategists and leaders."

Submission + - Plight of the Surgeon General

gollum123 writes: "From an editorial in Science, three former U.S. surgeons general sat before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and detailed a rising tide of political interference in the conduct of the office in which they had served ( http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/318/5848/169 ). This is during both Clinton and Bush administrations. Richard Carmona, who resigned the position last year, told of being blocked from speaking out on issues such as stem cell research and emergency contraception, and of instructions to reference President Bush three times on every page of any speech he gave. David Satcher of the Clinton Administration recounted interference with his report on sexuality and public health, in part because of the Monica Lewinsky affair. The Surgeon General is widely considered to be the doctor for the nation and an ombudsman for the public's health. But in reality, modern holders of the office are tightly constrained by the increasingly politicized environment of Washington. It calls for new legislation to do three things: provide an independent budget for the currently mendicant position; mandate an annual Surgeon General's Report on the state of the nation's health; and, essential to all else, insulate the Surgeon General from political interference."
