Levee is the project's first complete game release and covers events and conflicts of the French Revolution through a simple and engaging system of play. Design by John Welch and originally published by Victory Point Games in 2010, Levee is now being made available as a free computerized game thanks to Mr. Welch's gracious permission. The game can be used in a variety of ways in any History Class dealing with Enlightenment and Age of Revolution in Europe, such as World History Since 1789 or Western Civilization since 1500 from 8 grade to undergraduate. As Mr. Welch highlights, Levee en Masse is a game that simulates the struggle that grip France beginning with the Storming of Bastille in 1789 to Napoleon's seizure of power in 1802. The game was designed to be played solo but can easily be adapted for use in a single classroom or with smaller groups of students using multiple copies of the game. To facilitate its use in the classroom, Mr. Welch created several tools that can be used in conjunction with games.

No diesel

In 10 years since Hurricane Katrina, US Army Corps of Engineers has nearly completed one of the world's most remarkable Hurricane Protection systems to encircle New Orleans. Locals say their low-lying city finally has storm defenses it should have had before Katrina, which killed hundreds and caused billions in property losses. The West Bank is astronomically safer. There is no comparison since before Katrina and today, say Susan Maclay, president of Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority West. It's one of the state entities created after Katrina to consolidate and improve flood control. Tugboats cruise up the Intracoastal Waterway through a giant concrete and steel structure Call West Closure Complex that is one of the engineering marvels of the new system. During the flood event, Water, gate, nearly as long as a football field, slowly shuts and 11 behemoth diesel engines kick on to pump water out of Jefferson Parish. This structure cost approximately $1. 1 billion, Maclay boasts. It consists of the largest pump station in the world. It can fill an Olympic-size swimming pool in three seconds. West Closure Complex is part for $14. 5 billion Corps is spent on fortifications to protect some 900 000 people living in toe-tip of Louisiana. That's almost as much as the cost of a new nuclear-power aircraft carrier. The Ring of Protection around New Orleans is a vast improvement over the old system of federal levees and flood walls that failed catastrophically during Katrina. In the past decade, Corps has payed to strengthen 350 miles of Hurricane barriers and build massive New Flood gates using better construction materials and more advanced computer storm modeling. They've also updated pumping stations that are essential to de-Water Flood city. Old pump houses, some more than a century old, were considered so vulnerable that some workers freaked out and abandoned them when water rose during Katrina. Ricky Ray was a pump operator with New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board who heroically stayed at his post. He was interviewed a few days after the storm. First night mosquitoes were too bad, he said in a thick New Orleans accent. On the second night, they were bigger. On the third night, they were like B-29s in the window and the water was goin' septic. I say, 'We gotta get the hell outta here. ' New pump stations and closure structures have safe houses for workers build to withstand 250 mph winds, with air-conditioning and enough provisions to last week. The largest flood control structure is nicknamed the Great Wall of. Bernard Parish. It's 1. 8-mile-long barrier that is supposed to protect the city's eastern flank from Lake Borgne if water rises. Some of steel support piles extend 200 feet underground. I think this surge barrier here was $1. 7 billion. It's in Corps dollars, so it's like Monopoly money. The numbers are mind-boggling, says Steve Estopinal, outgoing president of Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority East.
