Unit Command Military Strategy Game – Free Online Trading Card Game

Unit Command Military Strategy Game – Free Online Trading Card Game

Unit Command is an online military trading card game. The game involves multiple online players, each having a collection of trading cards that form the players army. Two players can play against each other to achieve a mission. The game has missions based in different terrains. Certain cards in the game are more powerful when used in certain terrains. Therefore a player must use the right cards in the right terrain for maximum impact. A card may represent an officer, a fighting unit, or reinforcement. The officer cards are the main cards, and unit cards and reinforcement cards are used for supporting officer cards.

Players are allowed to trade cards with each other in this trading card game. This can be done using the Trade Zone feature of this game where a player can exchange a card from his/her collection with another player. Another way of procuring cards is to win in the game rounds. For each win, you get to choose a card from the opponents collection making your army strong, and rendering the opponents army weak. Yet another way of procuring cards is to purchase them from the in-game Store. You can procure desired trading cards in exchange of points from your account using the Store feature.

While collecting these military trading cards from the Trade Zone, the Store, or the opponents collection, you must know your own collection first. Carefully assess what cards you have. As mentioned before, certain cards are more powerful in certain terrains. Choose officer cards with offense score as close to the missions defense score as possible. This will be achieved better if officers specializing in the missions terrain are selected, since in that scenario the additional offense of an officer is taken into account as well. See what kind of new cards your collection would require so that your army is ready for all kinds of terrains. For example, a player might have cards for jungle and tundra terrains, but may lack cards for desert terrains. Such a player must start collecting cards that would be more powerful in the desert terrain. While trading cards with other players, keep in mind the ratings of the cards involved. It would not be wise to exchange your highly rated card for an opponents low rated card. Grow your army so that its ready for all kinds of terrains.

Top 10 Reasons For Visiting A Casino

Top 10 Reasons For Visiting A Casino

Over the course of a few weeks, I conducted a very brief survey, asking randomly chosen casino visitors one simple question. The question was, “Why did you visit this casino today?” Besides receiving an odd look every now and then, I managed to get a range of different reasons why people visit casinos.

Reason 1: To gamble. Not suprisingly, this was the main reason as you can probably guess by looking around the game tables and slot machines.

Reason 2: To eat and drink. While some singles and couples attended the casino to enjoy a few drinks at the bar, others were more interested in dining out at the casino restaurant.

Reason 3: Entertainment. This is another very common reason for visiting a casino. Whether it’s to see a comedy, magic, singing or dancing show, entertainment is a major factor when it comes to drawing casino visitors.

Reason 4: To socialize. Catching up with friends and socializing was another very common reason for visiting a casino.

Reason 5: Employment. This is not a reason that you’d expect to come up too frequently in people’s minds, but it is nevertheless true. Many people go to a casino because they work there, be it as a dealer, showgirl or a waitress.

Reason 6: Boredom. Many people decided to venture down to the casino because they were feeling bored and did not know where else to go, or what else to do on a Friday or Saturday night.

Reason 7: Someone brought me here. Someone decided to visit the casino and bring their partner, relative, friend or colleague along.

Reason 8: To learn how to play the games. A few people attended the casino to watch and learn how to play some of the casino games.

Reason 9: Romance. Be it the couple who decided to meet at the casino on a date or the single man or woman who is hoping to meet someone interesting, casinos are apparently great venues for meeting interesting new people.

Reason 10: There was no solid reason 10, but a collection of funny, strange and weird answers such as “I needed to use the bathroom” and “Someone owes me money”.

So as you can see, people don’t just visit casinos in order to gamble, but for a variety of interesting reasons.

Online Casinos Taking Toll on Land Based Casinos

Online Casinos Taking Toll on Land Based Casinos

Online gambling is getting increasingly popular. Most people who like to gamble know of an online gambling site and the trend is showing that people are using both physical and online gambling businesses. Is online gambling effecting the land bases casinos and institutions?

The first online casino started operations in 1995 and has started a whirlwind effect ever since. Since its inception, the online business has gone through government panels, regulation, and intense scrutiny. Most states in the US ruled in favor of land-based gambling institutions but did not favor online gambling casinos. The United States has a law that says that owning an online casino or gambling related business without a license is an illegal act. The catch 22 is that there are no states currently giving online gaming licenses which are forcing online gambling companies to move to other nations.

Now back to the question of how online casinos are affecting land based casinos. The online casino business can cost only 1.5 million to operate and build, whereas a land based casino can cost up to 300 million to build. The other big difference is that it only takes about 20 people to run an online casino where it can take over 20,000 thousand employees to run and operate a land based casino. As more people turn to online avenues, it is taking jobs away from people that work at the land based casinos. This is a large economic impact especially in todays economy. Las Vegas casinos are no longer able to keep the same amount of people hired that they could 10 years ago. As a result the housing market in Las Vegas has dropped significantly as people are out of work and are forced to either sell their home or go into foreclosure.

Its obvious that when people move over to online casinos they are taking money away from the land based casino business. When the online gambling companies move out of the country, their gambling and licensing fees are dramatically decreased. This also makes it much more costly for land based casinos because of all the government regulation, fees, and oversight that all land based casinos must conform to.

While it may be much more convenient and easy to use online casinos, it is without question that these actions are having a large effect on land based casinos. Online gambling is causing land based casinos to change their marketing and business strategies to be able to compete.

MontaVista Software Extends Support for ARM® Architecture Targeting Telecom and Networking Markets

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — MontaVista® Software, Inc., the leader in embedded Linux®commercialization, today announced Carrier Grade Edition® (CGE) support for the Carrier Grade Linux 5.0 profile for ARM architecture.  This milestone marks the first CGL registered product to support the ARM architecture. The tidal wave of smart phone and tablet usage has created a situation where mobile broadband demand is outpacing infrastructure capability. Carriers are racing to expand capacity while reducing the power required to run the mobile broadband telecommunications infrastructure.  For almost a decade, Telecom OEM and carriers have defined their Linux requirements using the Carrier Grade Linux specification.  MontaVista has bridgecd the gap between next generation silicon on ARM and Telecom Linux requirements.

“To support ARM-based SoC designs for carrier and cloud equipment, we recognize the importance of carrier grade software platforms to be in lock step with those silicon implementations, as this will accelerate time-to-deployment for highly reliable, available and secure next-generation equipment,” said Bob Monkman, manager, Enterprise Networking Segment for ARM. “MontaVista pioneered the Carrier Grade Linux movement, and it continues to be a leading innovator for this software platform that remains the crucial benchmark for network equipment and data centers alike. This milestone is another proof point that the necessary software ecosystem is in place for ARM-based systems to deploy into the global communications network.”

MontaVista’s Carrier Grade Edition is designed for high reliability infrastructure markets. CGE is the standard foundation of a Linux based platform, certified to meet performance requirements, high availability, serviceability, hardening, and real-time response.  The CGE multi-architecture platform allows customers to cross compile across all major architectures knowing they have met all CGL, LSB, and IPv6 requirements.  Only MontaVista provides a Carrier Grade Linux cross-architecture platform that allows telecom & network equipment manufacturers to cross compile from other architectures to ARM for their next-generation devices.

“As the provider of the world’s most widely-deployed Carrier Grade Linux, MontaVista is committed to supporting the ARM ecosystem with certified and high-performance operating systems.” said Patrick MacCartee, Director of Marketing for MontaVista Software. ”

Our unique experience enables us to provide the best-in-class platform for ARM in cloud and carrier infrastructure applications.  MontaVista is supporting the ARM architecture for a range of applications in the telecom supply chain.  Work is underway to provide KVM-based virtualization to enable cloud-based solutions for mobile core and data plane on the ARM architecture.

“MontaVista has led the way in providing Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) support since the first Requirements Definition document in 2002,” said Mark Orvek, Linaro VP of Engineering. “We’re pleased to see MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition listed by the Linux Foundation as the first distribution to implement the CGL specification on the ARM platform and we’re very happy to be working together with MontaVista and the other industry-leading members of the Linaro Networking Group to develop the future of Linux on ARM in this space.”

MontaVista is committed to compliance with the major industry standards and maintains its position of being the only Linux distribution in the world to comply with the three key requirements issued by the industry’s major standards bodies: CGL, Linux Standard Base (LSB), and IPv6. MontaVista’s Carrier Grade Edition is also the only embedded Linux to be Oracle-certified. This certification demonstrates MontaVista’s ongoing and continued commitment to CGE interoperability with industry software and hardware, and meets the rigorous demands of current and future multi-core network infrastructures. MontaVista has made available copies of the CGL5 registration documents on its website at http://www.mvista.com/products/cge/cgl/cgl.php.

“We applaud MontaVista’s continued leadership with Carrier Grade Linux for the carrier infrastructure market,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services Linux Foundation. “MontaVista’s support of the CGL specification for the ARM architecture will be key to enabling a smooth migration to this important SoC architecture that supports millions of devices worldwide.”

“Carrier grade” is a term for software and hardware products that support public telecommunications and data communications networks. Carrier grade products require extremely high degrees of reliability, scalability, and performance to provide an uninterrupted flow of the enormous volume of high-bandwidth data and voice needed for today’s multimedia communications.
