Metaru Gia Soriddo?) is an action-adventure stealth video game developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Japan and first published by Konami for the PlayStation in 1998. The game was directed, produced and co-written by Hideo Kojima and serves as a sequel to the MSX2 versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, which Kojima also directed.[5] The suffix Solid has several meanings as it not only references the game's protagonist, Solid Snake, but also alludes to the "solid" 3D graphics, and its placement as the third title in the series.
Metal Gear Solid follows Solid Snake, a soldier who infiltrates a nuclear weapons facility to neutralize the terrorist threat from FOXHOUND, a renegade special forces unit.[6] Snake must liberate two hostages, the head of DARPA and the president of a major arms manufacturer, confront the terrorists, and stop them from launching a nuclear strike.[7] Cinematic cutscenes were rendered using the in-game engine and graphics, and voice acting was used throughout the entire game.[8]
Metal Gear Solid was very well received, shipping more than six million copies,[9] and scoring an average of 94/100 on the aggregate website Metacritic.[10] It is regarded by many critics as one of the greatest and most important games of all time,[11][12] and is often seen as the game which helped popularize the stealth genre. The commercial success of the title prompted the release of an expanded version for the PlayStation and PC, titled Metal Gear Solid: Integral;[13] and a remake, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes was later released for the Nintendo GameCube.[14][15] The game has also spawned numerous sequels, prequels and spin-offs, including several games, a radio drama, comics, and novels.
Despite a transition to 3D, the gameplay of Metal Gear Solid remains similar to its 2D MSX2 predecessor Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. The player must navigate the protagonist, Solid Snake, through the game's areas without being detected by enemies.[16] Detection is triggered by the player moving into an enemy's field of vision and sets off an alarm that draws armed enemies to his location.[17] This also triggers "alert mode" and the player must then hide and remain undetected, at which point “evasion mode” begins and once the counter reaches zero the game returns to "infiltration mode" where enemies are not suspicious of Snake’s presence. The radar cannot be used in alert or evasion mode.[18]
To remain undetected, the player can perform techniques which make use of both Solid Snake's abilities and the environment, such as crawling under objects, using boxes as cover, ducking or hiding around walls, and making noise to distract enemies. These are carried out using the third-person camera, which often changes its angle to give the player the best view of the area possible, and an on-screen radar, which displays enemies and their field of vision.[19] Snake can also make use of many items and gadgets, such as infra-red goggles or a cardboard box disguise.[20] The emphasis on stealth promotes a less violent form of gameplay, as fights against large groups of enemies will often result in serious damage for the player.[21]
The game's progress is punctuated by cutscenes and codec, as well as encounters with bosses. To progress, players must discover the weaknesses of each boss and defeat them. Play controls and strategies can also be accessed via the Codec radio, where advice is delivered from Snake's support team; for example, the support team may chastise Snake for not saving his progress often enough, or explain his combat moves in terms of which buttons to press on the gamepad. The Codec is also used to provide exposition on the game's backstory. Completion of the title provides the player with a statistical summary of their performance, and a "code name" based upon it, typically the name of a common animal.

Mary Slessor

...Mary Mitchell Slessor was born in 1848 in Scotland, she was the second of seven children. She credited much of her good character to her upbringing from her deeply religious mother. Her father ran a shoe making business that did not go well, he became an alcoholic, which resulted hardship and poverty for the family. Mary started working to help provide for her family at a very young age, her wages became the primary source of the family income, she worked up to ten hours a day to make ends meet for her family. She became a Christian at a young age. She enjoyed going to church; it was a getaway from her unhappy life at home. Her older brother who was planning to go as a missionary died, at 25 years old, she decided to go in his place. She embarked on her missionary journey to calabar in 1975 where her battle for women’s rights began, she fell sick from malaria several times and eventually passed away in 1915, nearly forty years after coming to Africa, at the age of 66. Mary Slessor has become an inspiration to all who hear her story. She was not only a pioneer missionary, but also an activist for women in general. Slessor campaigned against injustices against women. Witchcraft and superstition were prevalent in Nigeria when she arrived there because traditional society had been torn apart by the slave trade. Human sacrifice routinely followed the death of a village dignitary for instance tribal customs like killing one wife of a chief in order for her soul to accompany her......

...Dear Mom and Dad, I’d like to say something cute and catchy here…but instead, I’ll just get to the point of why I’m sending you this message.   Danielle and I will be going on our 1st mission trip that will travel to Ecuador on November 2nd, 2013 to invest into the lives of children and families living in abject poverty. God has touched our hearts and opened our eyes to the harsh realities and living conditions that no child should ever have to endure.  Yet, they do.  The children that we will be caring for ‘endure’ in the most heinous and dire circumstances.  On this trip, we will be partnering with two organizations that are on the front lines caring for children and families in need. The first half of our trip will be spent at Nuevos Amigos. Our church, RiverTree Christian Church, has recently assumed the operational responsibilities of Nuevos Amigos, a school located just outside of the capital city of Quito, Ecuador. It's mission is to operate a school that seeks to walk hand in hand with families to ensure that children receive spiritual guidance, quality education, and loving care that complement a healthy home environment. The other half of our time will be spent serving one of the churches and child development projects that our church helped start through Stadia Church Planting and Compassion International. This church is located on Pampanal Island, located off the northern most coastline of Ecuador. There are roughly 250 chlidren on......

...MISSION EXPANSION THROUGH THE CENTURIES Joanne Holman Mission Expansion Through The Centuries June 18th, 2015 Thesis Statement: This research proposal will capture the journey and contribution of mission through centuries in expansion of Christianity. Christianity is a religion which has been diffused majorly through the missionaries. The Christian mission went many interior places to converts people into Christianities. Actually, this trend is even mentioned in the Bible where people were seen to be enamored by the personality of Jesus Christ. According to Daughrity, since time immemorial, missions have been playing important role to emerge Christianity as the religion followed by the largest population in the world. This research proposal will try to capture the scenario and history of expansion of missions through the centuries. From a large part of eastern Mediterranean known as Levant originated Christianity and after a journey of extensively long passage of Jerusalem, Assyria and Egypt (to name a few), it had been adapted as the official religion in Armenia, Georgia, Aksumite Empire and Roman Empire successively. Missions bore the extensive responsibility of spreading Christianity in the colonies of European countries such as England, France, and Spain etc. but, the largest empire of the world, England was itself a pagan nation and converted into Christianity by the eighth century as the result of the mission in 597 AD led by Pope Gregory I. Missions were......

...I Worldview is a person’s thoughts, beliefs and opinion on everything in the world around him. It can be your feelings about religion, work, life, violence, abortion, school or even an idea. Your worldview can be stimulated by watching television, a debate you participate in, talking with family or friends, your interacting with co-workers or even a person you pass on the street. Anything one encounters can contribute to your worldview. It is one’s unique opinion about life. II The Question of Origin. The Bible tells us that God created the world and the universe and everything in it (Gen. 1:1). This clearly is the beginning of man’s existence, our origin (Matt.5:45, 19:4). Before God’s creation there was no earth, no universe, just simply nothingness. I have often pondered this very question of my own beginning. Going back and back into my family tree and we all begin with our Heavenly Father. The Question of Identity. We were all made in the image of God (Gen.1:26), for he is our Creator. Genesis 1:28 teaches us that the Lord put us here on earth to rule over other living things, the plants and animals. We are superior over other things here on earth. Life’s experiences contribute to one’s identity. The things we learned as a child to adulthood, our education, what we learned from our parents and other authority figures, helped to form our identities. I would say that the most important contributing factor would be one’s religious beliefs. The Question......

Review of the Misson

...The Mission- A Review History of Christian Missions CHHI657 B01 201220 The Mission a film directed by Roland Joffe, recounts the tales of the Guarani Indians of Paraguay. In the paragraphs that follow we will look through the lens of the film and reflect on missions in the context of the colonial expansion that was taking place. Secondly the mission strategy of the Jesuits will be un-wrapped. Lastly it will be noted the attention to culture and the challenges of the work which goes hand in hand with the over all strategy. The film brings this time in history to life and paints a beautiful picture in the mind of the viewer of what took place. The whole encounter with the Guarani Indians was set in motion long before anyone outside of Paraguay knew they existed. The Spanish and Portuguese sought new lands in Central and South America. As they quested after these lands three things took place conquest, settlement, and evangelization[1]. The peoples of these lands were then subjects under the dominion of Christian Kings to whom the Pope had given sovereignty. Columbus took his first voyage in 1492, and by1515 the occupation of the West Indies was complete. With every expedition or quest and conquest came friars and priests. A good portion of the work was done by the Franciscans and the Dominicans, and later the Jesuits. The most notable for the Jesuits was Paraguay. In the beginning the work of the Jesuits suffered a lot from the hostility of the colonists. The......

...Many Catholics still believe that the term mission and missionary refer only to priest’s sister and religious. What new understanding have you developed about these concepts -mission and missionaries? For me, my understanding about missions is an intentional effort to lead others to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. It is the primary task given to believers by Jesus, and all believers are charged to participate. The word "mission" comes from the word "to send," and most Christians who are involved in full-time missions are sent to another location. All missions include the idea of leaving the comfort of the fellowship of other believers to engage with those who do not know Christ. This may be across town or on the other side of the globe. The way in which Christian missions spreads the gospel is different for every culture, even though the message is the same. To some degree, the method must be specific to the hearers. Different degrees of education, sophistication, and familiarity with Christian concepts will influence how the gospel can be shared. Every Christian is called to missions in their own lives. Jesus charges all of us to reach others with His message. It is not easy, but as we learn to love people like God does, we find sharing the truth about God essential to the Christian life. A missionary proclaims Jesus as Savior and Lord. Whom do they tell? Jesus made it clear that Christians are to reach out to “all the nations”, especially those ethnic groups without......

Reflective Essay

...REFLECTIVE ESSAY #1 1. I would be described as a very relaxed leader; someone who likes to have fun and enjoys leisure time. Some will describe me as a team player and compassionate whereas some will say I can be the life of the party. However, when mission is a priority, I expect for my subordinates to perform the task and produce results in a timely manner. 2. At times I can be difficult but only when challenged. For example, I tend to think more of the morale benefits as opposed to what benefits the mission. Though I can be outspoken and loyal, I can also be the worst follower. Learning the traits of an effective follower will help me portray great leadership skills thus perform my job well along with my subordinates and taking pride in our expertise. 3. I use a combination of country club to authoritarian leadership style. At times I will tell my troops to complete a task, no questions asked. Other times I will be in a lassie faire attitude and tell them to do whatever they want. Because of the inconsistencies of my leadership style, my troops are left confused and not knowing what to do. Therefore, I feel my leadership style is ineffective. It is my goal as an NCO to role model a great leader and NCOA has been a beneficial part of my improvement. 4. According to the classroom exercise, I am definitely an orange type of temperament. I don’t always set the right example because of my outspoken attitude towards leadership. My theory is to work hard......
