GeekSpeak – in which country do you want to be living in 10 years? Join the discussion Dec. 2 at 12pm SLT



The world is changing rapidly.  The standard of living is rising in some parts of the world and falling in others. In 10 years an oasis could become a wasteland, a desert could become agricultural land.  Rich countries could become poor and unstable; corrupt war-torn countries could become peaceful democracies.

Changes in technology will also make a difference.  New sources of energy, such as solar energy, will change the distribution of money in the world.  Other technology, such as driverless cars, will make all countries similar.

If you were a ‘digital nomad’ and could work anywhere in the world you wanted to work, which country would you choose?  Do you think about moving to another country now?  Or will you stay where you are whatever happens?

Come and discuss international living at GeekSpeak.  Bring your passport, visa not needed

Relationship Empowerment in SL and Beyond at WBH- Nov. 29th at 8:30 AM SLT



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.

GeekSpeak – Are we custodians of our planet? Join the discussion Sat. Nov. 26th at 12pm SLT





Imagine we were planted here by an alien race who wanted us to look after our planet.  Would we have obligations to the aliens who planted us here?  Would it be a good thing if we thought we were planted here by aliens even if it is not true?  Would we take our duty to the planet more seriously?  Do we have such a duty at all?  If we had to draw up a report for the aliens what would we put in it?

If there is a chance that we were not planted here by aliens should we make a ‘declaration of rights for all living creatures’?  Or a declaration of our duties to the planet itself?  Would that keep us on the job?

Or do you think we can consume everything and hop to the next planet?

Come and discuss these and other out of the world issues at GeekSpeak – thanksgiving edition.

Thanksgiving. What’s the Big Deal? Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

This parody article is back by popular demand,


Thanksgiving is observed in the United States,Canada, Puerto Rico, Liberia and Norfolk Island on the fourth Thursday of November. This year it falls on the 23th day of the month.

The holiday includes a gathering of family and friends for the great feast of the season. Traditionally, tables are laid out like a buffet of turkey, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, gravy and all sorts of other family recipes passed down from generations.

Today, the meal is usually followed by some football, snacks and beer. The whole day seems to revolve around food and entertaining house guests or house hoppin’ for pickings.
But really... what is Thanksgiving about?

I sat down with Pilgrim Pete and Chief Roughneck to ask them about this holiday and get both perspective on how it came about.

Visit LV! For those seeking some education in their second lives


 Explore exhibits about the U.S. Presidency/2016 election, Black History, Hispanic Heritage,  Women's History, Constitution Week. 9-11 Memorial and other resources.

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Serena%20Balmoral/230/31/22                 

Tex's Tree Farm has a great selection of Christmas Trees

    


Picking a fresh-cut Christmas tree isn't about crossing an item off your holiday to-do list. It's about breathing in the scents of fresh cut trees, sipping hot cocoa, listening to the fire crackle, and children laughing with delight as they skate around on the frozen pond. And best of all remembering Christmases gone by. 

     But this is only the start of a delightful visit to Tex’s Christmas Tree Farm. Here you will find the freshest trees of different varieties in all of Second Life. These trees are beautiful all by themselves, But for those who like to enhance the looks, we provide you packaged in the content of the tree, a “Deco Pack” of lights and baubles of different colors and styles. We even give you an animated axe for you to cut down your own tree.

    And before you leave with your beautiful tree, Make sure stop and say hi to Santa, and give him a few ideas of what wonderful things he can put under your tree. And don't forget to stop by Under the Christmas Tree Shop for all your Christmas Decorating needs and gifts.

A Deontological Approach To Gun Control- Join the discussion Sunday November 19th at 1pm SLT


LECTURE & MODERATED DISCUSSION ON THE DUTIES AND RIGHTS INVOLVED IN THE GUN CONTROL ISSUE, AND HOW THEY CAN BE USED TO RESOLVE THIS PUBLIC POLICY ISSUE.

Rhiannon Dragoone, perhaps the most controversial philosophy speaker on the grid, will host the event.  Although she holds a Ph.D., publishes in prestigious philosophy journals, and speaks to record-breaking crowds, she is often forbidden to talk because of the content of her ideas. Her current venue, Eternal Desires, is ranked no. 2 in philosophy traffic.  One Oxford lecturer referred to her lectures as "hardcore" philosophy and she has been called "a light in SL."  Come see for yourself. She will be hosting the event with absolutely no clothes on.

GeekSpeak – The Changing Internet. Join the discussion Sat Nov. 18th at 12pm SLT



The internet is constantly evolving.  What changes do you see coming and how will they affect us?  In the near term 5G technologies will give it hyperspeed.  Things that took several minutes will take only a few seconds.  In the far future are we looking at brain uploads?  Will our minds become part of the internet?

In the next few years how will the addition of 3 billion new people and zillions of devices (the internet of things) change the internet?  Will it become as much a human necessity as oxygen?

We have built a new layer of consciousness for ourselves and a giant wave of change in that layer threatens to engulf us.  Come and join the discussion and see what your future will be.
