Planetwide Games Announces Launch of Interactive 'National Geographic Comic Book Creator™' Software

Planetwide Games Announces Launch of Interactive 'National Geographic Comic Book Creator™' Software

Games, (PRWEB) February 13, 2006

NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) February 13, 2006
Planetwide Games, Inc., provider of innovative video games and application software, today announced a multiyear licensing agreement with the National Geographic Society, one of the world’s largest nonprofit scientific and educational organizations. Planetwide Games will integrate National Geographic’s award-winning, celebrated content into the company’s line of self-publishing software.

The first “National Geographic Comic Book Creator” interactive edutainment titles will focus on three separate versions for kids, teens and adults. All three versions will capitalize on Planetwide Games’ leadership in the self-publishing software arena, most recently demonstrated with the release of “Comic Book Creator™.” “National Geographic Comic Book Creator” interactive software versions will invite families to explore the wonder and majesty of the planet utilizing National Geographic’s extensive collection of photography, scientific information and maps. Additionally, people can create their own personal documentaries based on their real-life experiences and travel adventures using their own photos and clip-art in a scrapbook style diary format and comic book series.

“The National Geographic Society is a very powerful brand, whose impeccable, family-oriented reputation for bringing knowledge of different cultures and geographies to many people is a perfect fit for our vision of this project,” said Kevin Donovan, president of Planetwide Games. “Through our partnership with National Geographic, we want to empower people of all ages to share their life experiences and grow to understand the world on a global level in an educational and entertaining interactive environment.”

“This partnership is an exciting one for National Geographic because it provides us with an additional platform to educate consumers about the world and allows us to reach a new audience through interactive software,” said John Dumbacher, senior vice president of Licensing for the National Geographic Society.

Planetwide Games recently launched ”Comic Book Creator,” self-publishing software that allows consumers to utilize their own video game screenshots, DVD movies, digital photos or art assets to create personalized, authentic-looking comic books and comic strips. The company plans to introduce the Comic Book Society, a community site that will allow users from all over the world to collaborate on and share their comic creations.

Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2007

On August 23, 2007 Alan Edmunds of the Law Offices of Edmunds & Claery, LLP, was granted yet another favorable decision by the Administrative Law Judge in a National Security case proving that experience makes the difference.

Case number 07-01845 was heard in Arlington, Virginia in front of an Administrative Law Judge. This case involved a 30 year old applicant who received a Letter of Intent to Deny Security Clearance based on Guideline E (personal conduct), Guideline I (Emotional, Mental and Personality Disorders) and Guideline J (criminal conduct).

Attorney Edmunds submitted several items into evidence. Performance Evaluations, numerous personal recommendations, and proof of satisfied debt were all reviewed by the Administrative Judge and Department Counsel.

Mr. Edmunds requested that the Administrative Judge consider the "whole person" concept in evaluating the Applicant. Although the Government cited that it was not in the best interest of the country to allow Applicant access to classified information, Attorney Edmunds was able to successfully mitigate all of the concerns raised in the Letter of Intent to Deny Security Clearance. Upon evaluation the Judge found that is was clearly consistent with the national interest to grant or continue Applicant's security clearance.

Attorney Edmunds travels from coast to coast on a weekly basis defending individuals such as the case referenced above. From Washington, D. C. to Los Angeles, California, Attorney Edmunds has represented individuals and defended their rights for over 30 years. For more information please contact Alan V. Edmunds at www. alanedmunds. com or by phone at (800)481-2526.
