NEIT Library to host “Paranormal Realities”

johnsonThis year on Thursday, October 20th at 7pm in the Hall of Fame room the library will be presenting Keith & Sandra Johnson for our yearly Halloween event. Keith and his wife Sandra are self-proclaimed Demonologists who conduct “professional evidence-based investigations” for people who think they may have a haunting in their home.  They offer assistance “with the understanding of aspects of hauntings and the paranormal” and offer “assistance with identifying and removing spirits, both human and inhuman.”

Keith is also a published author of 3 book series on Demonology entitled Paranormal Realities. He has appeared on episodes of Ghost Hunters & Paranormal State. Keith & Sandra also have their own Cable Access show called Ghosts R N.E.A.R., a TV talk show that deals with paranormal topics and features interviews with local guests (paranormal investigators, authors, etc.) and on-location N.E.A.R. projects. Ghosts R N.E.A.R. is broadcast statewide in Rhode Island on Fridays at 8pm on channel 13 (Cox) & 32 (Verizon) and also (in Kent County, RI only) on Mondays at 7pm and Wednesdays at 8pm on channel 18 (Cox) & 31 (Verizon).

During the presentation, Keith and Sandra will discuss their investigations throughout the years with a power point presentation. They will also play EVP’s (Electronic Voice Phenomena) or spirit recordings they have picked up over the years during their investigations of haunted locations.

Also, they will bring along as a special guest speaker one of New England Tech’s own instructors Lisa Dowaliby! Lisa is the co-chair for the Animal Business Management program at New England Tech.  Lisa has also appeared on Ghost Hunters and is currently part of Keith’s investigative team.

Student Club brings “A taste of Florida” – Warwick Beacon

Member of New England Tech’s Rotoract Club continues to be charitable by helping raise funds for Girl Scouts and Kent Hospital.  Nice work!

More than 500 cases of Florida oranges and grapefruits were picked up Saturday at Paul Arpin Van Lines in West Warwick as part of the 26th annual Rotary Club of East Greenwich citrus drive. Proceeds from the drive, expected to total more than $7,000, will benefit the club’s charitable fund and in particular donations to the Girl Scouts and Kent Hospital. The club got a big assist from its Rotoract Club at the New England Institute of Technology. NEIT students helped with running the distribution of cartons of the fruit as people drove in to collect their orders.

Let the Games Begin!

13-Game Jam

Jono Forbes, of the video game company Defective Studios, prepares a NEIT gaming student to help demonstrate his company’s virtual reality game “Archean Worldbuilder.”

The Video Game Development and Design Department held its 6th Annual Power Game Day on October 23rd. The day-long event featured nine guest speakers representing a wide range of companies from small independent developers to large gaming companies, from both the design and programming sectors of the video game industry, presented to more than 160 NEIT gaming students.  While most of the presenters were from the New England area, Rod Haxton, a sound engineer from Maryland, and Shota Nakama, a video game music composer who recently returned from a trip to his native Japan, shared their insights with gaming students and faculty.  A trade fair was held in the afternoon showcasing new technologies emerging in the field. Students had the opportunity to network with the morning speakers as well. To cap off the day, students enjoyed a “Super Smash Brothers” video game tournament.

In addition, the 2015 Summer Game Jam was held for 24 continuous hours on August 9-10. Thirty‐three students were divided into seven teams. Each team had to design a variety of games from concept through completion incorporating this year’s theme, “Which came first: the chicken or the egg”? One team broke from the video game tradition creating a full table card game, adding a new dimension to the mix.

For the fifth consecutive year, New England Tech has been selected as an official host site for the 2016 Global Game Jam.  This international, 48-hour game design event will be held on January 29-30, 2016, at the college’s East Greenwich campus.  Last year, more than 11,000 gamers participated at nearly 500 jam sites worldwide. Now in its eighth year, Global Game Jam continues to grow in popularity.  Individuals over the age of 18, who have pre-registered, will work together in small teams to create and complete a playable video game within the 48-hour time limit.  There is no pre-planning.  Teams are informed of the “secret game theme” at the start of the event.
