Relationship Empowerment in SL and Beyond- Join the Discussion Sept. 20th at 8:30 am SLT



Join the discussion at WBH Towers of Invention Down & WBH Theater of Ideas Up

Relationships in Second Life can be confusing and painful...or they can bring new joy and meaning into our lives.  

Positive relationships are one of the major contributors to everyone's well-being. That's why Whole Brain Health is beginning a series of conversations about relationships in Second Life and beyond, facilitated by coaches Jami and Marla Keller (of Invite Inc, a 501c3), with the assistance of Muza Waco.

Communication is trickier than ever these days, especially in SL, so it pays to have clarity about what you want and who you are in each situation you encounter. Join us to find out how you can empower yourself to have more satisfying relationships... with just a little practice.

Rock Your Rack Opens September 30th!



Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 1 in 8 women, and an every increasing percentage of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, an annual fundraising event combining the best of SL Music, Art and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities and raise awareness for early detection which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.

This year's event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.

The 2017 event involves 58 designers including Platinum Sponsors: Aleutia, Chiffon, Designs by Soosy., Mahlberg Tailors, Miss Darcy, Nerd Alert, Prey, Prism and Xpicit Furnishings. In addition, this year's event will feature 2D and 3D artists with an Art show sponsored by Kultivate Magazine.  Add to that the 4 Tribute concerts, 15 DJ Dance Parties, 8 Live Music Artist Shows, 11 Fashion Shows, the 10L Hunt, Silent Auctions, Art Auction and you have one must-visit event.

Designers will be providing exclusive creations with 100% of the sales of those items going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation along with a fine selection of the newest and most popular designs donating a percentage as well.

For a complete listing of events and more details on this year's event, please visit the website:  http://rockyourrack.wordpress.com

This year's event officially opens to the public on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 12:00 am SLT and will close at 11:59 pm SLT on Saturday, October 14, 2017.

PIRATE SUNDAY at Holly Kai Park with Seanchai Library


They are dusting off their cutlasses, refreshing their command of "The Code" and getting ready to celebrate an event that marks the beginning of the "High Story Season" for one of Second Life's oldest spoken word programs -  now in its tenth year.  Seanchai Library will celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day  with Pirate Sunday on September 17th beginning at 1pm at Holly Kai Park, followed by music and dancing across the region at the Holly Kai Park Pavilion.

GeekSpeak – homelessness, what causes it and what can be done? Join the discussion Sept. 16th at 12pm SLT



This week we will discuss homelessness, a common problem in every city of the world.  What causes it and what can we do about it?  Is it a money problem or are there just too few houses?  Is it sometimes the fault of the homeless themselves?  Have they given up hope?

Do people become homeless in countries where there is plenty of space?  Or can they throw up a simple shelter there whenever they want?  Is homelessness mainly a problem of rich cities?  Are the rich, those who own several houses each, to blame for homelessness?

What is the answer?  To build more houses?  Perhaps smaller houses?  Perhaps taller buildings?  Or underground buildings?  Or houses under the sea?

Come to GeekSpeak to talk about it.  Bring your sleeping bag.

SCALA™ Management Presents: The Yin / Yang Event September 15 - September 30, 2017



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Theme: Feminine / Masculine

"two complementary principles of Chinese philosophy: Yin is negative, dark, and feminine, Yang positive, bright, and masculine. Their interaction is thought to maintain the harmony of the universe and to influence everything within it." (Taken from Dictionary.com Unabridged, Based on the Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2017)  

The SCALA Yin / Yang Event is situated on a harmonized zen built that is simple, yet not complex. Each month, or bi-monthly, we challenge Second Life designers with a theme representing the description using two words. This includes a range of representation from fashion to home and garden. By using their imagination in creating wearable or decorative items, SCALA Yin / Yang Event has been a fun and unique event in its own rights. 

Since June 2017, we have had amazing Second Life designers create fantastic exclusives; and Second Life creators who have donated towards the build, as well as sponsorship. What is your vision of Yin / Yang and what would you create to shock and awe, or add to the ambiance?

The Shelter- A place where Second Life’s Newcomers and seasoned Members can come together to learn and have a wholesome good time.- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…



The Shelter just celebrated its 13th Rezday on August 20th 2017.  In 2004,  a group of friends, fireeyes fauna,  Shadow pigeon, and Wacoede unplugged had a vision to bring people together and help new members get a good start on Second Life. Today it continues to help people as well as provide a safe haven for anyone who is looking to socialize, play games and just be in good company without the worries of griefers or adult content that can be found saturating the grid. 

The Second Life Enquirer took a tour of this long standing Second Life staple of the community and was impressed by the fun activities, warm welcome and outstanding guest service.



I met Hikaru Hitachiin (valgaav);  one of the many game show hosts and  volunteer at The Shelter after he finished hosting the game show Second Fortune; a spinoff of Wheel of Fortune.

I stumbled upon this brilliant game by accident while exploring and sat in to observe contestants as they took turns picking consonants and buying vowels to solved the puzzles.
If you are game show junkie or wished you were a contestant  testing your skills, winning lindens and bragging rights amongst your peers. You have to check this out.
Do you remember when game shows were the thing before reality TV muted it into the background of pop culture? Game shows like The Price is Right, Jeopardy and The Wheel of Fortune where among the most popular shows of the 80’s.



 In Second Life, we can experience being a contestant of SL’s version of Wheel of Fortune; SECOND FORTUNE created by  Fireeyes fauna. He also created other game shows as well, like Payment Podium which is based off of “Who wants to be a Millionaire”, the 2nd largest paying game show in Second Life.  Second Fortune, being the top paying game show offering up a prize pot of 1,000L$!



Sponsors can be part of the games how action by donating lindens or prizes. All you would need to do is contact a host.

The fun doesn’t end there!

Aside from the game show you can be a sponsor or participate in other events such as live DJ's who are at The Shelter throughout certain days all week. They vary in style and tastes. People can dance talk and relax in a safe environment, away from the adult side of SL.  They try to keep it pg rated here.

 Also, there are costume events on Saturday and Sunday, which is the big formal theme, The costume dance on Saturdays, is hosted by silverfox rainbow. Newbies under 60 days don't need to be in theme to win, but they can dress up if they wish. Pay pot is 1200L$  300L for male & female best winner, runner up is 200L a pop and newbie is 200L.
On Sunday from 4-6 pm The Shelter offer voice gatherings where they let people talk on mic for a little while. It gives them and also newbies the chance to break out of their shell.
Guest can join The Shelter group to learn about events and participate in game shows and other activities such as the forums where they allow newbies to say hello.  Members also post about things to sell in SL, and so forth.



One of the things I found very cool and took me back down memory lane is The Linden Money Tree. It is regulated by the forums. If you register, and are under 60 days, you may collect from the tree until you mature past that point. The requirement is newbies must register and confirm email before withdrawing from the tree. It is one of the only places where this tree exists.

 As I was taken on the tour Hikaru proudly let me know that the many staff and volunteers keep The Shelter safe from trolls and griefers before they cause trouble for guests. The outreach of The Shelter is to help, educate and also entertain in a safe place.


The Shelter is run strictly on donations. Right outside the dance club area, there are tiles on the ground that can be inscribed with messages for a fee, Ad boards that can be purchased as well as shop space rentals. All proceeds go to helping keep The Shelter up and running.
 The Shelter is a wonderful place. It’s like a breath of fresh air from the adult places around.
They keep rules in touch with the terms of service of Second Life. In that respect, they don't allow underage people, if they are found out. The proper procedure is handled and SL is contacted.



The Shelter has two other great places to visit, one being the open air space upstairs on the roof or the lost lakes balloon tour.   I have to say, the tour with Hikaru was very informative. I was impressed with all of the fun things to do.  I recommend putting The Shelter on your itinerary. You won’t be disappointed.

Limelight Social & Sex Club presents "Fight for Second Life," a Net Neutrality awareness event. Sept. 12, 2017



When it comes to Net Neutrality, many people are absolutely clueless as to what it is and how it can impact their internet use and even their very lives.  

Additionally, there are many who use Second Life not only as a form of entertainment but also to conduct business in which they generate a real income.

Limelight is happy to announce our second event to promote Net Neutrality awareness and action.

On September 12, 2017, we will hold 24 hours of events at our club and encourage other clubs to do the same. 

As with our first event in July, we will have a donation box, and all donations will be sent to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (http://eff.org).  We have donation boxes available for clubs that would like to promote Net Neutrality awareness on the 12th with us.  They are available free of charge by simply contacting Misticia Moonwall or Mackenzie Souther.

We're also providing articles so people can educate themselves further on the subject and also contact their representatives in order to effect change at BattleforSecondLife.wordpress.com.

Hope to see you there, and let's keep the internet free!
