there are also more offenders of all levels per capita here as wellGletne said it’s probably because the city is home to a state medium-security prison the State Hospital which treats sex offenders and four transition homes for when those offenders are releasedRegistered high-risk sex offenders deemed by authorities as a high risk to re-offend and whose address changes police must announce publicly are an unevenly distributed population Though numbers can change daily as offenders move around a search of the registry in June yielded a total of 232 high-risk offenders statewide but 60 percent live in ZIP codes in the Bismarck-Mandan area Fargo-West Fargo and Jamestown areas These ZIP codes have 37 percent of the state’s estimated high-risk offender populationWhere offenders liveThe Jamestown ZIP code had 35 high-risk offenders which is 20 offenders per 10000 residents Put another way one out of every 500 Jamestown residents is a high-risk offenderBismarck-Mandan ZIP codes had 66 or six per 10000 and Fargo-West Fargo ZIP codes had 38 or three per 10000 Bismarck is home to two state prisonsPolice Sgt Junell Krabbenhoft who oversees sex offender registration in Fargo said the city has one detective registering sex offenders full time and assigning officers to check on each She said there are 240 sex offenders of all risk levels living in the city and 83 more who work in the cityAll these figures do not include those in state custody such as prisoners or those confined to the State HospitalThey also don’t include sex offenders who haven’t had their risk levels assessed by the state of North Dakota Other states and American Indian reservations assess risk levels their own way so apple-to-apple comparisons are difficult Reservations in North Dakota reported 69 Tier 3 sex offenders the highest-risk category In Moorhead’s ZIP code seven high-risk sex offenders are registered with the state of Minnesota The state doesn’t assign a risk level to every sex offender for a variety of reasons including those who commit their crimes as juveniles or were released from prison before 1997That may be why in Minnesota communities the size of Fargo-Moorhead have much smaller numbers of high-risk sex offenders There are seven in St Cloud ZIP codes and 10 each in Duluth and Rochester ZIP codes or one in 10000 residents in all three areasIn South Dakota no risk levels are assigned to sex offenders The state assigns offenders to one of three tiers the highest one being those who must register for life The lifetime registration is the default and being able to get off the registry is based mostly on the offender being 21 or younger when the crime happened and the victim being 13 or olderSioux Falls police said there are 522 Tier 3 sex offenders—the highest tier—in Minnehaha County; city-level data tied to tiers was not available That works out to 28 per 10000 residents or one out of every 355 The city hosts a state prison which includes transitional housingPolice Det Ron Harris who oversees the sex offender registry for his department said it’s logical that more offenders would settle in the area after leaving transitional housing which requires they have jobs enough cash in the bank to survive in the outside world and housing before they’re released He said he doesn’t have data that proves that thoughSex offender registries kept by law enforcement have been more or less open to the public since around 1996 when President Bill Clinton signed Megan’s Law requiring sex offenders and their whereabouts be disclosed to the public It’s named after Megan Kanka a 7-year-old New Jersey girl who was kidnapped raped and killed by her neighbor Jesse Timmendequas in 1994 Her parents were unaware he was a sex offenderIn more recent years registries have gotten more attention with the 2003 kidnap and murder of University of North Dakota student Dru Sjodin by another sex offender Alfonso Rodriguez Jr That prompted the creation of a national registry named after herKeeping tabsGletne said because housing for sex offenders is so hard to come by—few communities want them and public notification means even friends and families may refuse them—Jamestown has become a destination for many offenders coming from other parts of the stateWhen registering offenders for the first time police often ask why they happen to be in Jamestown he said and often the answer is because the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has placed them with the transition homes "Because of housing needs and for treatment and for supervision we end up with quite a few people who are really not from our community"He said there has been little opposition to the construction of transition homes here which he attributes to hospital and prison employees in the community just being used to dealing with former felonsGletne said keeping close tabs on sex offenders the way Jamestown police officers do has been effective "I think the program has kept things under control It develops that relationship We’re checking on them every month visiting with them They know we’re thinking about them They know we’re out there I do think that has to have some impact"It’s rare he said that a registered sex offender commits another sex crime in the community—he could only think of two since he started with the department more than 40 years ago— though other minor crimes such as thefts aren’t unknownOne of those re-offenders was Walter J Grant Jr. Williams’s character Mia becomes estranged from main actor Casey Affleck. (With Agency Inputs)I’m cruising through amaranth-tinged vacuum in a dangerously vulnerable starship Asteroids phase in and out of view each a lumpen mass my photon cannons can smash into space fuel A pack of capital ships warps into view like some cosmic rabbit-from-a-hat trick In the distance a “distress signal” beckons as pirates needle a flock of lumbering freighters like interstellar bees Should I join the fray On whose side Should I instead make for a nearby moon to scavenge resources Or a distant “space anomaly” that’s been vying for my attention Read TIME’s piece on the creation of No Man’s Sky This is Hello Games’ audacious No Man’s Sky out for PlayStation 4 August 9 and PC August 12 Whether it measures up to years of anticipation depends how closely you paid attention to Hello Games’ original promise: that it was cobbling together a kind of Zen zoology simulator framed by freeform exploration of procedurally generated planets with bouts of action-angled interstellar combat thrown in Not scientifically rigorous (though very much science-informed) and definitely not a Space Sim to Rule All Space Sims But thats okay because it turns out "freeform zoology thingy with gorgeous vistas" is enough and at times sublimely more Here’s how it works: Everyone starts at the edge of the universe on a unique planet beside a crashed spaceship This is the screw your courage to the sticking place part as you’re assaulted by atmospherics like temperature toxicity and radiationmore so if you’ve lucked into somewhere truly noxious To get the spaceship working you have to probe for resources using a jetpack (it gets you out of holes and softens drops) and a “multi-tool”a sort of space-age Swiss Army Knife that doubles as a blaster Both your spacesuit and ship need infusions of elements like Carbon Plutonium and Thamium9 and their scarcity or plentifulness is determined by a planet’s proximity to its sunanother indication of how science-nerdy the Hello Games folks are Repair your ship by alchemizing the right materials and you can lift off through the clouds and into space all of it as loading-screen-free as teased in those early videos From orbit you can leap to other planets or dock at space stations to trade with other species Or become a space pirate Or fashion yourself as an intergalactic Claude Lévi-Strauss Its a cosmic carte blanche The big gameplay complication is that your suit and ship have limited storage slots so inventory management and supply-demand savvy become crucial Along the way you’ll unlock “recipes” that let you craft upgrades to your suit ship or multi-tool and occasionally chance on cosmic artifacts that tease different pathed backstories or teach you new words in alien vocabularies It’s a classic extract-barter-upgrade loop Butand this is where the game’s virtues become more abstractit’s also about reveling in the outlandish things the universe-generation algorithm lobs at you Like creepy towering creatures with lobster eye-stalks and skittering spider legs or a cavern full of exotic multi-hued flora and dancing luminescent motes or a sunset so psychedelic and stirring you can’t help but stop to watch If Minecraft is a procedural game about refining and reorganizing distributed bits of informationall those cubes of dirt and rock and ore into recognizable objects and structures and mechanismsthen No Man’s Sky is a procedural game about instead cataloguing all that procedural output while enjoying the five-star views A game this unstructured just goes to show you no two or 10 (or who knows how many) players are going to approach it the same way or for the same reasons Someone landed a copy a week early then decided to race as fast as possible to the center (there’s a mystery there if you’re up to it) as a way of testing claims about the game’s capaciousness That’s one way to do it like speed-reading a Kim Stanley Robinson novel or winning a hot dog eating contest Another might be what I’ve been up to during my first day with the game just ambling around a handful of planetsdiscovered and named after my childrenin nearby solar systems When you think about how technically vast this game is that’s like saying you spent a day in contemplation of two or three grains of sand Hello Games But we’ve known all along that No Man’s Sky mathematical grandeur masks a universe that’s idiosyncratic only to a point There are no grand civilizations sequestered somewhere in this galaxy with Turing Test-passable aliens waiting to wow us with riveting conversation You’ll never get to square off against other players in frenzied dogfights or even meet up with friends for an adventure That No Man’s Sky only gins up content when you’re paying attention to it is poetically solipsistic: It’s literally only about you The point is that you only notice that sameness in small ways because all you’ll ever see is a microscopic fraction of the output If two or three planets can devour hours imagine trying to visit half a million or morea blip against the total upwards of 18 quintillion No one’s going to come close So in playing No Man’s Sky you wind up thinking less about its theoretical size than what it feels like to navigate from one planet to the next or between systems and on to galaxies whether following the tendrils of optional story beats or exploring for the pleasure of exploration alone I was worried the game might lose me for the inverse of all the reasons a game like Minecraft has yet to bore me Yes the universe isn’t random and yes it’s all extrapolated from a nucleus of elegant mathematics in a way that boggles the mind But randomness was never the issue The problem with exploration-driven gameplay at this scale is over-generalization and you’ll notice it straight off in No Man’s Sky: Alien outposts laid out the same on every planet; diplomatic chitchats that draw from a shallow pool of conversational possibilities; geometrically unique but interactively homogenous creatures that wander about in the same aimless ways Hello Games But a lot of people bounce playing Minecraft because they’re looking for a game it’s not trying to be Just because hunks of half-chopped trees hang in the air defying Newtonian physics doesn’t mean Minecraft has a gravity problem Likewise No Man’s Sky‘s algorithmic seams feel like red herrings for players looking for something Hello Games never set out to make: not a game that trots out surprise after surprise but one that equips you with the tools to surprise yourself Maybe it was the time I chose to swap ships without a part needed to craft warp cells stranding me in a system on a mystery-hunt across half a dozen moons and planets Or the space pirates that chased me down from orbit to dogfight planet-side as a blood-red sun dropped over cerulean waters Or the time I spent a full play session trying to line myself up just to see a solar eclipse Whatever the anecdote it’s felt organic enthralling and entirely earned What would finishing a game like this look like Collect enough space bucks to buy the coolest ship or spacesuit Unlock every achievement Unearth some Ambrose Bierce twist where it turns out the whole thing’s an elaborate simulation (Which technically speaking a procedurally generated universe already is right) Who knows I’ve poured hundreds of hours into Minecraft and I’ve yet to visit “The End” or slay the Ender Dragon Our ideas of what it means to play much less “finish” games like this look increasingly like scatter charts Even if a hundred or more hours from now No Man’s Sky wears out its welcome I’ll be grateful and still somewhat awestruck by what a tiny team of developers rejiggering decades-old design ideas managed to pull off 45 out of 5 Reviewed on PlayStation 4 Write to Matt Peckham at [email protected]: Aiming to recreate the BJP’s stellar UP show in Bengal rural polls next year and 2019 Lok Sabha elections the BJP in the state is taking tips from their counterparts in Uttar Pradesh and has prepared a three-pronged strategy to emerge as the main contender of the ruling TMC "After our massive victory in the UP our focus will be on Bengal where the appeasement policy of the corrupt Mamata Banerjee government has reached its apogee People are fed up with this government and are looking for a change Law and order has completely failed in 10 districts and Bengal has become a hub of anti-nationals" BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said He said BJP is synonymous with good governance and Modi’s agenda of development has been accepted by all According to BJP sources the party is planning to revamp the organistion in districts and frontal organisations in the next few months Narendra Modi PTI Vijayvargiya’s views were endorsed by the BJP state Mahila Morcha president and MP Roopa Ganguly who felt that Bengal was desperatly looking for a political force to counter TMC "We may have organisational lacunae but wherever there is an incident or issue it is the BJP which first hit the streets Bengal is desperatly looking for a political force to counter TMC" Ganguly told PTI BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha said since the results of UP have come out leaders from various political parties are in touch with BJP and have expressed their wish to join the party "For last two days we have received calls from various parties expressing a desire to join the party The surge in UP will definitely have its ripples in Bengal" Sinha felt Sinha however says that whoever wants to join BJP has to pass through the special screening committee of the party The party has also decided to rope in intellectuals and popular faces in an attempt to build a good image of the party in the state The party will create an army of trained workers and whole timers who could propagate about the achievements of the Narendra Modi government in every district of the state and expose the misrule of the TMC government A state BJP general secretary said that a screening process was recently started to induct hundreds of wholetimers for the party According to party sources the district leaderships have been instructed to keep aside their differences and work as a single unit to strengthen the party organisation "The district leadership has also been asked to take regular feedback from the RSS in the districts which will help us more to work and reach out to the grass roots level" a BJP leader said State BJP president Dilip Ghosh hoped that the measures being adopted by the state unit would help the party emerge as the main political opponent of the ruling party force in the state "In terms of force we are the main opposition in Bengal We may have a small number in the Assembly but we are a major force Both the Congress and the CPI(M) are playing second fiddle of the TMC" Ghosh said According to party sources the state unit has also decided to use the experience of 300 BJP workers from Bengal who were sent to UP ahead of elections to pick up new startegies and campiagn techqnies which may give an edge to the party in the back-to-back elections in Bengal – 2018 Panchayat polls 2019 Lok Sabha polls 2020 municipal polls and 2021 Assembly polls Riding on Modi wave the BJP had made impressive gains in Bengal in 2014 when it secured 17 per cent of popular votes But in the absence of good leadership and organizational efficiency and due to severe infighting the party lost its momentum by the beginning of 2015 only to bounce back in the 2016 Assembly polls by bagging three seats and 11 per cent vote share Mumbai: Unseeded Dalila Jakupovic of Slovenia set herself up in line for a double crown in the $125000 L&T Mumbai Open by rallying from a set down to overcome her higher-ranked Uzbekistan opponent Sabina Sharipova on Saturday The 26-year-old Jakupovic who entered the doubles final with her Russian partner Irina Khromacheva last evening quelled a strong challenge from her younger and higher-ranked Uzbek rival to chalk out a 3-6 6-3 6-3 victory in one hour and 41 minutes in the WTA event at the Cricket Club of India Dalila Jakupovic hits a backhand return against Sabina Sharipova during their semi-final match Mumbai Open Jakupovic will face top-seeded Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka in the singles final on Sunday Sabalenka will have a chance to claim the biggest title of her career this year as she advanced to the championship match with a 6-2 6-3 victory over unseeded Frenchwoman Amandine Hesse Jakupovic ranked 252 dropped the first set after taking an early 2-0 lead as she was broken in successive games which helped her 23-year-old rival from Tashkent ranked 186 take a 4-2 lead from where Sharipova surged to the set 6-3 in half an hour Jakupovic who had not reached beyond the second round of a WTA event before reaching here bounced back brilliantly to break her rival in the fifth game of the second set that she later clinched 6-3 in 31 minutes leading to the decider Sharipova who had reached her second WTA event quarter-final after upsetting third seed Yanina Wickmayer on Friday in the round of 16 had a golden chance to take early control of the third set but frittered away three break-points in the sixth game that Jakupovic finally won after the third deuce call Encouraged by this escape Jakupovic attacked her rival’s serve in the next game forcing Sharipova to commit errors and broke the Uzbek’s serve with a lovely drop shot followed by a double-fault by Sharipova The Slovenian player then held serve at 15 for a 5-3 lead and then put Sharipova’s service under press again to prise out errors from the Uzbek’s racquet Sharipova netted a forehand to be a match-point down saved it but double-faulted to face the second match-point and dropped the serve and the match when she hit a forehand wide In the doubles semi final the second-seeded pair of Jakupovic and Khromacheva got the better of fourth seeds Julia Glushko of Israel and Priscilla Hon of Australia 6-3 6-2 Jakupovic and Khromacheva will meet Victoria Rodrigues of Mexico and Bibiane Schoofs of the Netherlands in the final on Sunday which is to be played after the
