Listening #queenlatifah #nakiajones #trevornoah

Below are a few links to black people speaking in the wake of the two police shootings this week of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile as well as the sniper attacks on Dallas police officers guarding peaceful protesters exercising their First Amendment rights.  Listening to these people is especially helpful for me out of the many listened to this week.

Nakia Jones: Police Officer and Mother, Facebook video

Trevor Noah: The Daily Show, You Can Be Pro-Cop and Pro-Black

Queen Latifah: Musician, Actress, "Black Wherever I Go...I'm Also the Daughter of a Cop, Sister of a Cop, Cousin of a Cop, Niece of Cops

As a white, Christian pastor, wife, and mother, my heart goes out first and foremost to everyone who lost people they love this week - black, white, and blue.  The shock and grief is unimaginable.  At the same time, my mind is challenged by the complexity of the problems needing solutions. I'm open to being a part of the solutions.

  1. New Features We Want in the New FIFA
    FIFA 20 came with a new mode called Volta and the AI was also cleverly reprogrammed to make the FIFA 21 Coins offline matches more realistic. However, players still want to see the following upgrades and improvements in FIFA 21:
    A Little More Fun on the Street
    Volta brought all the fun of FIFA Street to FIFA 20. In fact, Volta was received positively by the audience so EA is sure to include even better street modes in FIFA 21 this year. I would definitely love it if EA came up with a perfect punch of professional soccer and street action.

    A Revamped Career Mode
    Career mode was first introduced in FIFA 17. It was a huge success when it first came out in 2016. However, EA has not done anything praiseworthy afterward. The career modes in games following FIFA 17 are all very repetitive and oh-so-similar so this year should bring something new to the players. Personally, I’m not too excited about the career mode because it may again be a similar old story with new faces.
    Better Visuals and Graphics Advancements
    You may have noticed that graphics advancements in FIFA games released over the past 3 years have not been groundbreaking. That is because the console generation is nearing its end and developers are running low on power to throw something awe-inspiring at the old hardware. This year is different though. Xbox Series X and PS5 will be released in the coming holiday season and both the consoles are powerhouses so EA can put the extra power of these new consoles to work by introducing visual advancements in FIFA 21. The new hardware will feature ray tracing, audio tracing and other awesome sounding technologies to take the FIFA 21 experience to the next level. There will be a full graphics overhaul to put 12 teraflops of processing power packed in Xbox One X to work!
