Games which can prevent domestic violence
Susannah Emery is a programmer from Adelaide. She creates games and one of the last ones lets people understand how to communicate with people who undergo domestic violence. The game's interface is a sort of chat and you speak with a bot which is allegedly a victim. People can learn how they may help such people. The bot is called Hannah, by the name of the woman, who was killed in Brisbane. It is not the first useful app by Mrs Emery, she created a game which helps children of different nationalities to learn.
Now women are taking leading places in the game industry in Australia. As we can see, they are needed not to just entertain, but to help as well.

Surprise for residents of Southern Sydney
When in the midst of a mass panic around a coronavirus pandemic, you find a tank on the side of the road in the middle of the city, you perforce begin to get nervous. However, the Australians quickly calmed down in this situation: the owner of the local wedding salon acquired the military equipment to organize the original wedding ceremonies.
Yesterday morning, residents of Sydney, to put it mildly, were surprised to find a tank left in front of their houses by an unknown person. The battered A41 Centurion simply stood on the sidelines, as if parked. The news quickly spread around and everyone could even take a picture on the armor or nearby, but it didn’t immediately come out of where military equipment came from.
Armored vehicles were acquired by the owner of a local wedding salon at an auction. He planned to deliver the caterpillar to the car repair shop so that she could be diagnosed there.
Since the fifty-ton Centurion does not fit in the workshop parking lot, he was left on the side of the road, where he seemed to be spent at least another month. Then it will be painted white, and will be rented out to everyone who wants to arrange a wedding ceremony in the most original way.
