It was argued in an AOL article that the craft was caused by “insects that got caught in that interlaced video as they’re flying through with a wing beat frequency, and the frames are being captured at a frequency… that causes that look,” according to a member of MUFON, and similar sentiments were expressed by a special effects expert, who also stated that he was “sure that there’s a conventional explanation,” which shows us that his mind was made up before he ever saw any footage. I have to say that, since the object goes behind the church in two of the frames of the video, it seems highly unlikely to me that such an explanation is adequate. Assuming it is a UFO far enough away from the camera to be behind the church steeples, that means that it is LARGE, and for an object of that size, it is moving FAST. So, are aliens watching football? Like this:

Octalysis: Complete Gamification Framework - Actionable Gamification - Quora Octalysis: Complete Gamification Framework Gamification is design that places the most emphasis on the human in the process. In essence, it is Human-Focused Design (as opposed to “function-focused design”). Most processes design around function and efficiency – they try to get the job done as quickly as possible. Games, however, have a sole focus of pleasing the “human” in the process. Even though many Gamification techniques were in use long before games were around, games were one of the earliest examples of a holistic approach to implementing Human-Based Design - so now we call it Gamification.

Typology of Extraterrestrial Races according to Alex Collier and the Andromedans by Michael E. Salla, PhD One of the most difficult areas for those researching the extraterrestrial phenomenon is the large number of extraterrestrial races that appear in the testimonies of a variety of whistleblowers/contactees/abductees and other sources. Differentiating between these extraterrestrial races in terms of physical appearance, motivations and activities is essential for all wanting to fully comprehend the extraterrestrial phenomenon.

How Gamification Works - 3D GameLab Instead of courses consisting mainly of textbook learning and lectures, classes built using game mechanics such as badges, experience points, levels and leaderboards, boost student engagement by allowing students to choose from “quests” and progress at their own pace through a series of educational activities. Students are motivated due to personal choice and meaningfulness, real-time feedback, the ability to collaborate or compete, and over time, they learn stay persistent in learning due to prior successes. Quest tasks can range from listening to a podcast, collecting and analyzing real-time data, or watching a short video to partnering with a classmate for discussion or writing a short essay. As students complete each quest, they can level up to new assignments on their journey toward an “A.” Teachers have the ability to approve quests or put them on auto-approval so students can keep progressing while waiting for their teacher’s feedback on milestone work.
