    Greetings BWC ALL!

    I am Gyun, your friendly neighborhood PAO Services Officer, and today I am reporting to you from the Black Widow Company (BWC) Public Affairs Offices.

    I am walking these halls in order to update you on the great and wonderful things happening in PAO for the good of BWC and its members.

    I understand that the OIC for PAO,
    NewAge, is about to go into a meeting -- the glorious life of a senior C&S member -- but before he does let's try to catch him for a brief statement. NewAge, could I get a brief statement from you about PAO for the article?

    The Public Affairs Office here in BWC is a complex apparatus composed of many moving parts.

Our PAO team is a small, but knowledgeable and dedicated group who have consistently gone above and beyond what is expected of them to get the art done, the articles written, the streams running smoothly, and the social media updated.

    Over the past year, Public Affairs has expanded from its somewhat humble state into an information and productivity powerhouse. We brought online a new homepage and have been cranking out articles on BWC events. Our twitch viewership has exploded, and we're in the early stages of having regularly scheduled content on our channel. Our Social Media department has really stepped up their game in finding new and innovative ways to bring this increase in content and other relevent gaming info to BWC as a whole. We're churning out tons of high-quality art for everything from forum signatures, to twitch panels, and fruit salad awards. As if that wasn't enough, we're completing almost all of our 2 week assignments in 24-48 hours. The piece de resistance of our whole year though has got to be the reinvisioning, redesigning, and execution of the BWC podcast. This is something we've been trying to get off the ground for years now, and all the pieces finally came together to make that happen.

    Of course, this is all due to the herculean efforts of the family we've got here. Were it not for their daily efforts, BWC would be back in the dark ages of communication and situational awareness. I am extremely lucky to have the honor and privilege of serving with this fine team, and I look forward to what the future brings as we discover it together.
    NewAge's words rings true because there is certainly a steady hustle and bustle all around me -- into which we are going to jump. Let's go around the Public Affairs Office and check in with some the PAO staff. (Continue Reading)

    Black Widow Company's (BWC) Planetside 2 regiment is joining forces with Four Aces Outift (4ACE) regiment to help one of BWC's favorite charities: the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. As part of the St. Jude PLAY LIVE charity video game event, BWC and 4ACE will be hosting several live-streaming operations from July 24 through July 25.

    What is St. Jude PLAY LIVE?

    St. Jude PLAY LIVE is a charity video game event that raises money and awareness for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. You can game solo or as a team, online or off, and earn exclusive prizes and service hours while you play.

    St. Jude PLAY LIVE helps raise funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food. St. Jude freely shares its groundbreaking discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.

    What is St. Jude Children's Research Hospital?

    As a research hospital, St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and cures childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world. St. Jude has the world's best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since we opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. St. Jude won?t stop until no child dies from cancer.
