Sometimes we like to play slots, and maybe a round of card or roulette – but then there are a lot more to check around the wide digital worlds.
Such like Golf…
A golf pro is someone who has completed the requirements to become certified as a professional by the Professional Golfer’s Association. Golf pros often manage golf courses and provide lessons to other golfers. When managing a course, golf pros often maintain holes, schedule golfers to play on the course, manage stores attached to the course and assist golfers on the course. When providing lessons, golf pros use their expertise to provide valuable insight to other golfers on how to improve their form, use the right clubs and improve their overall golf scores.
Comics as an art medium have evolved fast since they began in the late 19th century with collections of comic strips. We see a diverse set of creators, art variety, and even the newer digital art format, which has allowed many artists to expand on their techniques and accessibility to the industry.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the term comic strip in the sense of “a group of cartoons in narrative sequence” was first used in 1913. The French equivalent of the word, bande dessinée (literally, “drawn strip”) is older. It goes back to 1833, when the Swiss artist Rodolphe Töpffer, created L’Hiistoire de M. Jabot (The Story of Mr. Jabot).
Still, some people consider that comic strips date back to the British painter William Hogarth and his story told in a series of six pictures, A Harlot’s Progress (1731); to Hokusai’s sketches; to old European engravings that included speech bubbles; to medieval illuminations, or even to prehistoric cave paintings!

The Vikings were a seafaring people from the late eighth to early 11th century who established a name for themselves as traders, explorers and warriors. They discovered the Americas long before Columbus and could be found as far east as the distant reaches of Russia. From around A.D. 800 to the 11th century, a vast number of Scandinavians left their homelands to seek their fortunes elsewhere. These seafaring warriors–known collectively as Vikings or Norsemen (“Northmen”)–began by raiding coastal sites, especially undefended monasteries, in the British Isles. Over the next three centuries, they would leave their mark as pirates, raiders, traders and settlers on much of Britain and the European continent, as well as parts of modern-day Russia, Iceland, Greenland and Newfoundland.
While these people are often attributed as savages raiding the more civilized nations for treasure and women, the motives and culture of the Viking people are much more diverse. These raiders also facilitated many changes throughout the lands from economics to warfare.
How esports started back in the days
The earliest known video game competition took place on 19 October 1972 at Stanford University for the game Spacewar. Stanford students were invited to an “Intergalactic spacewar olympics” whose grand prize was a year’s subscription for Rolling Stone, with Bruce Baumgart winning the five-man-free-for-all tournament and Tovar and Robert E. Maas winning the team competition.
Esports (also known as electronic sports, e-sports, or eSports) is a form of competition using video games. Esports often takes the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions, particularly between professional players, individually or as teams. Although organized competitions have long been a part of video game culture, these were largely between amateurs until the late 2000s, when participation by professional gamers and spectatorship in these events through live streaming saw a large surge in popularity. By the 2010s, esports was a significant factor in the video game industry, with many game developers actively designing and providing funding for tournaments and other events.
Dragons and Us
For much of history, dragons were thought of like any other exotic animal: sometimes useful and protective, other times harmful and dangerous. That changed when Christianity spread across the globe, and dragons took on a decidedly sinister hue and came to represent Satan. Still, these fascinating magical creatures have continued to captivate our imagination through folklore, literature, and more recently films, television series, and video games.
