The latest issue of Jump has the first details on the upcoming new game in the Gundam universe: Gundam Versus. A press release announced this will be another part of the “S Gundam” series, and that the next chapter of the game is “in the works.” As we reported earlier today, the game will release for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.
Gundam Versus is the new series in the “S Gundam” franchise, created by Sunrise Animation. This is an action-based fighting game. The game is set in the near future where a technology-driven war has caused all of the earth’s nations to converge on a moon orbiting the planet Venus. There, a group of special “Gundam” robots known as “S Gundam” must stop various warring countries and their leaders in order to protect the planet and safeguard its inhabitants.
A new game, Gundam Versus, will begin airing in Japan in Spring 2017.
A recent report from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health concluded that there are no statistically significant differences in the frequency of use between teens and young adults between age 18-24 and 25-34. Some have questioned the reliability of this study—after all, it was a very short survey, and surveys can show differences between younger and older generations of college students. But a deeper look at its methodology and results confirms that the survey provides compelling evidence of a long-term decline in marijuana use among American teens in both racial and ethnic groups, and especially among blacks and Latinos.
To assess the survey’s findings, three of us from the Addiction Research Center at Columbia University reviewed the data and examined its quality. First, we evaluated the survey’s definition of marijuana use, and then examined the respondents’ responses on the survey’s five drugs of abuse. After these analyses, we concluded that the surveys’ statistics were statistically significant enough to support their interpretation that marijuana is decreasing among all age groups.
The five drugs of abuse are tobacco, alcohol, inhalants, heroin and marijuana. It’s important to note two things. First, in this paper, this isn’t an argument for legalization of marijuana; it’s an argument that legalization is unlikely to result in decreased use. For instance, a recent study showed that when marijuana was legalized in Alaska, both consumption and use rates were very high—much higher than
